Dlncovery Regarding Sioux ; ' 'City's Treasurer. s SiotJx CITY, June 22.—The city officers here are considerably startled by the discovery that City Treasurer Anderson has been serving for over a year without an official bond. Anderson was elected in 1892 and at the beginning of his term gave a $100,000 ..Ibond. In 1894 he was re-elected and "through some unaccountable accident the council approved his old bond on the supposition that it was a new one. The mistake" has-just been discovered. Several of the signers on the old bond are now practically bankrupt, in addition to which the general opinion of the city officers is that they would not be liable in any case for Anderson's actions since his re-election. Anderson professes to be as much atonished as anyone and will undoubtedly offer a new bond. SHE LOVED A'FARMER. 1 He Befuaod to Marry Her So She Suicided at Leon.

Getting up he found Mardzel in the throes of death and Lusche crying and exclaiming that he did not mean to kill him. An alarm was at once given, but before assistance came Mardzel had expired and Lusche had escaped in the underbrush. The murderer is a man about 48 years of age At Des Moines recently the supreme court heard final arguments on the application for a writ of supersedeas in the case. of the state vs. Pressman, by Judge Spurrier's decision in which the Des Moines saloons must close if the supreme court does not grant relief. Arguments were made by the attorneys on both sides, when after listening patiently the court retired and in a short time returned and attached to the application for a writ of supersedeas the following: "The application' having this day been submitted and argued at chambers before Justices Robinson, Granger, Kinne and Given and said judges present being equally divided, the application is denied." This settles the question and closes the mulct saloons in Des Moines. The fifth judge, Justice Deemer, has clearly passed on these questions and is against the saloons, 4 Deputy United States Marshal Richards, of Des Moines, has taken charge of the offices and business of the Interstate Tracer company at Marshall town xinder an attachment issued from the federal court in favor of James T, Hare et'al., of Chicago, against A.

They did not trace me at all beyond Jamaica, but 1 understand they are still in Barbadoes following a false clue which 1 laid for them. 1 did not go to South America at all and all the reports of the detectives,-about my wanderings after leaving Jamaica are pure moonshine as Well as much of what they told earlier. The state had no idea where 1 was and could not have caught me in years, but I knew my absence was causing my family and friends Very great sorrow and I did riot Want to give up my name and home for all time.

A recent dispatch from Washington City announces that a second decree has been received from Rome concerning the obligation of Catholics to remain out of the Knights of Pythias organization. It states that there appears to be no further reason why the decree of last December should not be made public in all dioceses, and all archbishops and bishops are accordingly directed to promulgate the decree without further delay. When the decree was first issued, the head of each diocese was .given two months within which to publish it or else to make known to Rome in writing what special circumstances exist why publication should be deferred. Most of the heads of dioceses have since published the decree, but as unofficial information reached Rome that some bishops had not yet acted, this second decree was issued.

Atwood of fisthervilie fof secretary and A. U. Cdfltes of Perry as reading secretary. Committees Were then appointed on resolutions, credentials, permanent organization and state central committee. Pfof. B. W. Stoddard 'of LeGrand College was toade permanent chairman of the meeting, The committee on resolutions reported the following: The prohibition party of Ib*a, iti convention . assembled at the city of Des Moifies, June H|, 1895, acknowledge A mighty God as the rightful sovereign of all men, and to Whose laws all human enactments' must Confirm to secure the blesgines of peace and prosperity, presents the fol- lowiag declarations and principles i We declare our sympathies, as a party of reform, to be in favor of whatever tends to make men intelligent and virtuous. We assert our purpose to be identical With that of the national constitution, to establish justice, to insure domestic trnnqtiility, to promote the general welfare and to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. Wo reaffirm the liquor traffic as a foe to civilization and to popular government; that it promotes poverty and crime : that it thwarts the will of the people and destroys our homes, and we declare anew for the entire suppression of the manufacture and sale of alcoholic liquors as a beverage, and that the full power of the government should be asserted to secure this result. We declare that the so-called regulation by license, mulct or taxation,' whereby a revenue Is derived from this traffic, is contrary to good government, is complicity with the liquor crime • ai)d corrupting to public conscience. We pledge our co-operation with all organizations endeavoring to suppress the evils of tbe saloon, but our experience ot disappointments convinces us that any political party, not openly opposing this traffic, will court the tavor of the liquor interests, aud for party success will shape the legislation to secure or retain their support. We therefore declare for prohibition, with the prohibition party behind it. We demand that every citizen of the United States shall bo allowed to cast a free and unrestricted ballot at all elections, and that such ballot shall be returned as cast ; and that this sovereign right shall be denied to no citizen on account of sex. We declare for a tariff for revenue to defray tbe necessary expenses of the government economically administered, but discriminating with a special reference to the protection of our domestic labor. We believe in the gold and silver coinage of the constitution and a national currency issued by the general government only. We demand the return of the free . coinage of both silver and gold, without discrimination against eithor, at the ratio of 18 to 1, and at once independent of the action of any other nation, We affirm that railroads, telegraphs and all work now granted franchises, the right of eminent domain and other sovereign privileges, should b<s owned or strictly controlled by the government for the people, and our opposition to all monopolies by legislation, because they are violations of equal rights of the people. This country has always been a refuge for all the oppressed of exiles, for conscience sake ; but it is now becoming largely a refuge for the criminals and the home lor the pauper population of other countries. We, therefore, declare for the revision of our emigrant laws that we may continue to receive the worthy and may be frte from the burden of the vicious and indolent. We stand lor the American public school taught ill the English language, and opposed to any appropriations for sectarian purposes or for the perpetuation of foreign customs or languages, and declare that Aye can only thus hope to become and remain a homogenious and harmful people. We defend tbe divine right of all to one day's rest in seven. The armies of the republic are disbanded we trust never to be marshalled again in battle array, but so long as patriotism exists we demand for the soldiers of the nation generous and liberal pensions, and their widows and orphans. STATE MATTERS. We denounce in unmeasured terms the so-called mulct law of this state, and we arraign the republican party which enacted it for perfidy and treachery to the vote of the sovereign people cast for prohibition June 37, 1882, and we declare that no one layman or priest Js worthy of the public confidence of the people who aided or abetted the enactment of the infamous statute or who now palliates its continuance. We demand that the. revenue laws of Iowa shall be radically reconstructed, to tbe end that the wealth of the wealthy shall bear its just proportion of taxation. In other words. we demand legislation that shall cause each dollar to pay its own taxes. • We demand that the public institutions of Iowa shall be placed on purely a business foundation and their management divorced from partisan control. We demand that legislation shall be had to control the charges for telephones, telegraphs and express companies, as well as to regulate transportation of railways. We demand legislation reducing official salaries of the state so that officers shall only be paid in proportion to compensations given similar talent in the other business affairs of the world. » We demand a reduction of legal rate of interest m this state to (5 par cent. We declare in favor of arbitration as the •wisest, most humane ancl economical method of settling all international as well as lesser differences in nation and state. We declare that the principle of taxation Amplified in the income tax law just and beneficent, and we greatly deplore the decision o£ tbe United States supreme court) by which that Jaw was made i void, and so long as it is necessary to look for national revenues by tariff, we declare lor a tariff for reventie only, t>»at sha.ll meet the expenses of the government economically administered, Bui diaoriwinating with special reference to the protection pf our domestic labor, convention then proceeded to state ticket a.s' follows: Fop jfnvernort Frank Bacon; for lieutep r ajit'go'ver»or, M, W.
