State St. TBI/BFHONB 18. CEO. L. CALBRAITH •& CO. CARRY A FULL LINE OF DBS MOINES, March 9.—The "manufacturing bill" rests in the hands of the senate committee on the suppression of intemperance. The bill will be radically changed in that committee and its fate is a matter of doubt. The situation has quieted.down very much tvs to this bill and it is difficult to predict the outcome. The number of senators tire in condition to do as they please. Their constituents are divided and they are unlnstructed. -f- -f- -f- Speaker Byers is growing impatient and has been Urging the members of the house to use renewed energy in pushing the work. •4- -T- -4- The house has amended the laws so that the entire cost of the jury, to-wit, $24 per day, shall be taxed as part of the costs to be paid by the losing litigant. At present the losing party is taxed $6 per day for the cost of the jury. Iowa had this law once before arid it was not popular. The house has also passed the amendment which was defeated in the senate before, limiting the arguments by lawyers in the courts. The limit was fixed within certain bounds, leaving some discretion with the judge. It is not believed this amendment can pass the senate, having already been defeated there. -r- -t- -T- The senate has passed a bill reducing the salaries of physicians in charge of the insane hospitals from $4,000 to $2,500 per year. A vigorous campaign is being made against this reduction, on the ground that these physicians 1 are men of the highest ability and that _ i „ _ „_,, n V. t\ o 4-.Vvaw TlfMAT in counwsa iio.»iug ™ H"K""- V *"~ <16.000 and not, exceeding 20,000, the salary shall be $1,300. , In counties haying a population x>f 20,000 and hot exceeding 26,000, the salary shall be $L400. , In counties having a population of 25,000 and hot exceeding 30,000, • the salary shall be $1,500. , In counties having a Population of 30,000 and not exceeding 35,000, tne salary shall be $1,000. , , In counties having a- population of 35,000 and not exceeding 40,000, the salary shall be $1,800. _ . having a population of 40,000 and not exceeding 45,000, , the, salary shall be $2,000. . .

At the present time the wife gets her dower no matter what she is given in the general bequest.

The joint sub-committee on cities and towns decided to recommend a provision allowing the company and the city to go into the district court and have the matter judicially arranged pending the vote on the franchise. ~t ~i » The fever for investigation has subsided and much of the gossip that was floating around in the air in the corridors and everywhere has disappeared.

It is a rare opportunity for all who want a farm at a reasonable figure. F W. Dingley and Alex. White took up an offer made by Frank Hume on his Wesley lumber yard. Hume promptly backed out. It is said he has been making the offer for some time as a bluff. He caught the wrong men this time.
