DBS MoiNES, Feb. 16.—Your readers have probably discovered that it is hot possible to make these letters interesting. The proceedings of the general assembly are not of an exciting nature. The code makers are proceeding with their work with a reasonable degree of energy. Now and then changes are .made by one house or the other, but few radical changes have passed the gauntlet of both houses. . The committees of both houses are BO far along with their work that within a few days both will be holding two sessions a day; then the work will be pushed more rapidly. -There is but little use of holding two sessions at the. present time, as there would not be work enough to do. Senator Carney has a motion pending in the senate requiring two senate sessions. Action is expected soon.. -f -f- 4- The senate has amended the election law prohibiting the name of any candidate going on the ticket more than once. This will prevent fusion.

The senate believes that when a man gets his name on the Australian ballot in one spot he is before the voter, or where the voter can reach him, and that is enough. There has been much quiet talk about this measure and it will undoubtedly pass the house. Three republican senators, viz: Ellis, Garst and Lothrop, voted against the amendment, along with the six democrats. These senators did not vote that way to antagonize their political associate, but they thought the opposition might claim that republicans were legislating for their own advantage. However, Iowa is following the lead of other states in this matter. -4- 4- 4- Governor Drake, .assisted by bis daughter, whose elopement and marriage was chronicled not long ago, will hold a reception this week for members of the general assembly and other state officers and their wives at the Savory house.

The senate voted last Friday to do away with the publication of the official ballot In the county papers.

The objection of expense was met with an offer to limit it to $50 or $75 to each paper. The vote was very close, 21 to 20, and Senator Mitchell voted for the amendment a'nd filed a motion to reconsider It. It is likely that the publication of the ballot may be continued with the price limited. LAFE YOUNG. Six pounds of XXXX coffeefor Six pounds of Arbuckle coffee for Six pounds of Lyons' coffee for . .

The resolution authorized the committee to inquire into the receipts and expenditures of the various departments of the state government, with power to send for papers and persons and directing the committee to report to the house. It is understood that the Funk investigation was originated mainly to inquire into the expense of compiling the census in the secretary of state's office. A man by the name of W. T. Diller, who was a clerk for a time on the census and who is at present out of employment, has been gossip- _. . Hfl'rt'filn »*1 onri Fl TIM Tho Darky and His Tbreo Wishes. The following anecdote well il tratesthe spirit of contentment pre™ lent with the negro in the south before the war: Jack was once asked by his young master to make three wishes. He was told to take plenty of time and think well before he spoke. . After deliberating several minutes he said, "Weil, Marse Joe, I want a par ° f "Jaok,» said his master, "when you consider all the number of good things in this world, can't you think of something better?

But when Diller was put on the witness stand he testified that he had borrowed money from McFarland, as. the result of his necessities, and had repaid the same after he had secured employment on the census. It is not anticipated that any great scandals will he un< earthed by any of these investigating committees. There has been a great deal of talk with little foundation. The state is in debt because the general assembly appropriated too liberally last year and also made too many of the appropriations available during the year 1896. The state auditor, in a recent published statement, estimated that at the beginning of next year the deficit would be something over $502,000, The prudent legislators understand that this deficit cannot be wiped out by reducing the salaries of persons in the ' . ., _i..i~ mv,o nQirt;' troneral "Now, Jack, you have oniy one muio wish.
