An extra session is therefore a '.-jreai-economy. The one thing which .commends the new code is the prospect "that Senator Funk and his committee ~5»Ill get the laws governing the assess- ment and taxation of property into .. some shape. It would be a public misfortune to have the work they have -clone this winter go to waste. The Twenty-sixth general assembly • -disbanded Saturday at 3 o'clock. Our *;.legislative letters have kept our read- f «rs fully posted as to its achievements. - The concluding letter in this issue , : . sums up fairly the laws enacted and the -• -nerits of the men who have enacted 'r"them. On the whole it has been a . : "hard-working and meritorious legislature. The code commissioners' in- terpretation of the latitude given them was unfortunate, the squabble on the soldiers' monument medallions seems unreasonable, a great deal of time was - wasted on the age of consent and other measures of like kind that should have been settled in ten minutes. But all in all the session has been of value. It is a pleasure to state that Senator Punk and Representative Mayne have • Aeen conspicuously connected with the -.measures that meant business, and '."

The senate presented Lieutenant Governor Parrott With a chair and gavel and to Mrs. Parrott the senators gave a beautiful cut glass bowl, as a testimonial in recognition of her many kindnesses to the wives of senators during the winter. The presentation to Mrs. Parrott was by the wife of Senator Rigged, Mrs. Parrott responding grace- folly. Secretary Bullard of the senate, who made such a splendid officer, was presented with a chair. All the clerks and employes were thanked. Speaker Byers and Clerk Rowcn of the house were presented with gold watches both responding with splendid impromptu speeches. The speech of presentation to the speaker waa made by Representative Temple. Representative Byington, a democrat from Johnson county, made the presen tation to Clerk Rowen. The final action of "both branches of the general assembtf in regard to the soldiers' monument is embodied in the following joint resolution : First, That the commission be directed not to place upon -the monument any medallion portrait of any person living or dead or snch special recognition as exalts one soldier above another of equal or more deserving record.

Some of the newspapers are discuss- what is " logical" in legislation, - when a moment's consideration shows - that legislation has little to do with * " logic. There is no principle of govern<-: ment, however satisfactory in any ^ given application, that can safely be . carried to a "logical conclusion." In- dividualiHm is good to a certaim point, . socialism is good to a certain point, and good government is a compromise • between the two. "Logical conclusion" men are almost invariably cranks in a legislative assembly. The papers , Say it is " logical" to manufacture beer , !n the state if it is sold in the s.tate. ' Follow out the logic. Why should restrictions be put upon the sale of heer if it is legal to manufacture it? The _ logic of it all is as free sale of alcohol as of tea or vinegar, and no one can , -escape it. Liquor legislation is ex- perimental. The people are cutting and trying, as they are with all other 7 legislation, and because they allow a restricted sale o/ beer is no more argu- • ment for permitting manufacture than Is the free furnishing of text books an argument for the free furnishing of , .clothes and meals to school children. . , —»« commission be directed to have inscribed upon the monument the name of each regiment and organization, the number of men enlisted and the date of its muster and dis charge. This is all the action that was taken in regard to the monument by the Twenty-sixth general assembly and it means that the medallions already prepared must be omitted from the monument. Finally it was ordered that the medallions prepared for the monument and already paid for are to be preserved in the historical department, so all U well that ends well The medallions are to be left off the mon- but they are to be preserved by the M E> Bo - Vle ba « bought a handsome residence in Whittemore, aad it is said ^ 1m ^ l "R. new sy is hidden In the dim but not distant future.

" __ A ttiMsSrd of fbtle Wdfk Jtone at the IfefcfllAr April Sfessioti-Mtich IB Bridge and Grade Work. fhe county is to have cheaper grading this year than last. The county board met Monday in regular session and opened the bids. For the north 60 cents end of the county they Were aa follows: Broadwell, 61 cents for first 100 feet, . one cent extra each extra 100 feet; a* 9 Hatch bid 6 9-10 oti the first 100 feel; Sampson, t; Ordway, 71; Alpheus.John- soB, 8; Haight, 6i. E. B. Brand well, who lives near Fonda, was lowest. Last year the bid for this district was 7i cents. For the south half the bids were: Haight, ? cents for first 100 feet and 1 cent extra for each 100 after; Hatch, 7 for first 100,1 extra to 400 feet, H to 600 feet, 2 extra to 1,000 feet; Broad well, 7i for first 100; A. Johnson, 8. W. Wj Haight got the contract. He had the north-end contract last year, and is also a Fonda man. Our home men were a little too high. The south-end coo- tract last year Was 6 15-16 cents, a shade lower than this year. But altogether the grading comes cheaper than it has ever before been done. In 1893 grading cost 14 cents a yard, and in 1894 it cost 9 cents. DR. LACY AGAIN. The county has appealed the suit brought by Dr. Lacy in which he got a verdict for $234 at Emmetsburg, and now he has bills for $68 for attending Geo. Simmons, $41.25 for attending H. Gurten, and $131.90 for attending E. E. Worthing, all diptheria cases. The board decided to let them lie over until the supreme court decides whether township boards must call the county physician before hiring local physicians. Dr. Lacy talked of bringing another suit at once. CHANCE FOR A §200 SUIT. J. C. Schreimer went on to a bridge in Burt township with a steam thresher and broke through. He has put in a bill for $200, alleging that the bridge was defective. The board refused to allow it, and suit is likely. NO THIRD OFFICIAL PAPER. The Bancroft Register asked to be made a third official paper, but the board decided that they would have no more official publication than the law actually compels them to. ' FANCY PRINTING BILLS. The Courier and Republican were allowed $72 each for printing the financial report of the county, a two column table, in all $144. A SINGULAR. DISPUTE. Along in the cyclone period the board appointed a relief committee and turned over the court room rentals to it to use. The relief corps got an idea that the A Kossuth farmer recently renewed subscription to the Dea Moines Capital because of its cheerful tone. Xafe Young has just celebrated his jefoth year with the Capital, and while ..3*e has made it a notable paper in many - ways, its pre-eminent quality was Struck by our local subscriber, Mr, "Young has somewhere in his office an unbounded and never failing supply of ^barreled sunshine.

The most important bills passed were as follows: Raising the age of consent from 13 to 16; the act of regulating loan and building associations; tbe act prohibiting insurance combines; the act taxing the gross receipts of express companies $1 on each $100; the act changing the burden of proof, putting it on the telegraph company when the suit is for damages caused by negligence or delay; the act making corrections and amendments to the jury law; the act prohibiting druggists from selling beer- the act totally prohibiting the manufacture or sale of cigarettes or cigarette paper except by wholesale to residents of other states; the act imposing a collateral inher itancetax: the act requiring all moneys issued by the government to be subject to taxation; the act authorizing guardians o insane persons to mortgage the property i their charge in the interest of the'estate etc. No change was made in any law ap plying to railway companies, and none wa expected. There were fewer railway lob byists th,an usual. There were about 118 general laws passed while the acts legalizing the doings of town councils and various public officials not so numerous as in the past. gar Tuthill is to be postmaster, is a creamery and store at Lone Palo Alto There Rock. iron contract for the and ordinary let at were Appropriations were made for the suppor of the various state institutions with more liberal hand than usual.

The agricultural college and all the other institutions in the state were given liberal sums, The message of Governor Jackson calling the attention of the state to the necessities of the state institutions seems to have had great weight, In this connection it may be noted that the state revenue for 1891! was fixed at *1,400,000, and a like amount for . ., county will put an bridge over the Des Moines at 'Burg. It will be 120 feet cost $1,455.

The motherless girls and father enjoyed the vasit very much. Emmetsburg Reporter: The M E people of Algona are planning to build a new church this season. They need one badly and have been thinking of building one for several years, and now that they have started will build a good OD0( Ledyardis to have a $1,500 United Presbyterian church with audience room 32x40 feet, swell pulpit, choir room, and^ corner belfry tower. It will money belonged to them, and went up and drew it. The board adopted the following resolutions: Resolved, That the auditor be instructed to request the president of the women's relief corps to return the money drawn from the auditor, and that the same ke turned over to the committee appointed by the board of supervisors to assist in looking after the county poor; and that Mrs. Lantry and Mrs. Setchell be appointed such committee.
