V, PEEK Haggard & Peek, [Successors to Jones * Smlth.l Abstracts, Real Estate,-*®* Collections, ALGQNA, IOWA, proposed to the railroad law by which a railroad employe, if he belongs to a " relief society" composed of the em- ployes of the road and accepts its benefits, in case of injury, can afterward sue the road for damages just as if he did notbelong to the relief society. The only railroad relief society in the sttiteis composed of employes of the C. B. & Q. The amendment passed the house a long time ago by a very large vote. So the fight was all centered in the senate. The question came up in the senate on Wednesday. The senate committee, by a majority, had roported a substitute, which had been framed by Senator Berry, which gives the employes of the railroad 80 days after an accident within which to decide whether or not they will accept the relief society's benefits or whether they will elect to sue the road and take their chances on securing a judgment. After long debate, occupying an entire day, the Berry substitute was adopted. the vote being 28 for to 19 against, three not voting. The debate was one of the most interesting of the entire session. The 10- minute rule was in force and the senators demonstrated tbat better speeches are made when the time is short. The Burlington Belief association, according to Senator Pusey's speech, has over 2,000 members in Iowa and a majority of them have belonged for eight years. It was freely charged by senators who favored the Temple amendment that the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy coerced men to belong to the relief association by employing those who would agree to join in preference to those who would not agree to do- so. Those who opposed the amendment argued that employes of a corporation ought to be permitted to enter into such contracts as the relief association offered if they desired to do so. It was evident that the fight upon the Burlington Belief association was being, made by the various "brotherhoods" of railroad men working on the other lines. The "brotherhood men" regard the Burlington relief association as a menace. The brotherhoods all pay sick and death benefits and are largely held together on that account. Take away these benefits and the "brotherhoods" would so to pieces. The debate was participated in by the following senators Hobart/Irewin, Ellison, Harper, Druet Healy, Carpenter, Garst, Upton, Pusey, Kilburn, Byers, Bowen, Cheshire, Waterman and Berry. The vote above given will indicate the positions taken by these senators. The question is not entirely concluded in the senate and will cause a warm discussion when it comes up again. Enough is known, however, to indicate that the Temple amendment will not pass the senate. The house members appear to be determined and say that they will have the Temple amendment or a further contest. -5- -j- -i- The revenue bill has now passed both houses, but the house amendments remain to be considered in the senate. •+••*••*-• Some radical legislation has been enacted in the new insurance law. The changes are too numerous to be described in this letter, but they are all of a radical anti-monopoly nature. •f H- •*• Every thing pertaining to prin ting am binding at present is in the hands o the house printing committee. -5- -i- -*J S. Emery of this city is heading a movement asking the state to issue bonds to the amount of $450,000 with which to erect a beet sugar factory at the Iowa Agricultural college and farm. The bonds are to run 20 years and to draw four per cent, interest. Mr, Emery desires to make a great sugar producing state out of Iowa, His bill was drawn by Hon. A. B, Cummins. But Mr. Emery overlooked the fact that the state of Iowa cannot have_a bonded debt over $250,000 except in time of war or public danger, Since Jan. 4, 'l897, State Treasurer Herriott has paid $514,886.49 in state warrants that have been drawing interest. -He has cash, on hand to the amount of $144,867.10, It is estimated that half the state debt, about which so much noise has been made, will be paid bv May J. It will require between $90,000 and $100,000 to pay the members of the legislature when they adjourn. The other, expenses of the session are being paid right ftlopg. So the state of Iowa is all right after all, •' -ir -r -*The bill authorizing the printing an.d annotating of the code prepared by the joint committee of the two houses came up in the house on Saturday and was referred to the judiciary committee. There will be a strong fight on this bill, but it is believed that it will finally pass and that the state of Iowa will edit, annotate and print her own code, " without asking the consent or other nation on earth," ae Bryan and gives them" something to think over that will be of benefit to all as well ae members of the order." This is the 78th anniversary celebration, and a big gathering is expected, • -»- -*• Sugar Bailey credits F, H.

The Gazette says: This chubby specimen of angelic humanity tipped the beam at 12 pounds and 18 ounces, avordupois, but this seems to us to be incorrect. A druggist has a right to use troy weight, with 12 ounces to the pound, and allowing Mr. Brunson this privilege, we have the weight of the child a little over 16fr pounds. He has just cause for feeling proud. -i- •+• -»The Garner Signal says that during the high water Corwith tied the nearest house to a telegraph pole, and then all the other houses to that.
