CARRY A FULL LINE OF ets, i VJV t-u.«» --——i •- - . ___ ^ -,4*j ves Funk, Lauder, Davis, Baker ana Voelker, has made its report. The committee reports the aggregate cost of the census from beginning to end, including compiling, etc., at something over $100,000. The committee does not find that the printer or binder padded the book or did any other dishonorable thing, but the committee thinks that much of the matter in the report ought to have been omitted. The committee finds that the printer's work was fairly and honestly done, with less waste of space than in former reports, ine committee finds that clerks on the census were paid $3 per day when they might have been hired for J2. The committee also finds that Mr. McFar- lancl, the then secretary of state, collected toll from some of the clerks, they paving the same in order to hold their situations. The committee also finds that there have been too many committee clerks and too many em- ployes of the general assembly and recommends a general reduction of em- ployes and their salaries. Also recommends that greater care should be taken in the supply department, as regards the general assembly and the dealing out of supplies. It is also recommended that the powers of the executive council in appropriating money be more restricted. The committee report is generally considered fair. Universal regret is expressed on account of the illness of ex-Secretary McFat-land. The hope is also expressed that when he gets well he may present a satisfactory defense. Until that time 'lodgment IB and should be withheld. But one committee remains to report— the committee on printing—which, by common consent is also investigating the binding. There is considerable friction in this committee between the members of the former investigating committee who are likewise members of the printing committee. • - * - ~i— n Iowa by taking the entire companies and dividing it into'mTle"s"aud in that way reach the value of the mileage in Iowa.

On that day the senate discussed and finally voted on the bill permitting the manufacture of liquors in Iowa. All the details need not be given. Ihe vote by which the manufacture of liquors was authorized was as follows: 1 Yeas-Blanchard, Bonson, Byers, Carpenter, Cheshire Craig, Downey Druet Ellis, Everall, Funk, Garst, Harper, Hip well, Hobart, Hospers, Hurst, Lehfeldt, Lothrop, Penrose, Pusey, Ranck, Riggen, Trewin, Upton, Noy^Alexander, Allyn, Bell, Berry, Carney, Carroll, Eaton, Ellison, Eric- Bon Gilbertson, Gorrell, Harriman, Healy Henderson, Hotchkiss, Junkin, Kilburn, Mitchell, Palmer', Perrln, Phelps, Rowen, Sargent, Young—24. The bill was considerably amended in the senate committee and goes back to the house for consideration again, it is generally believed that it will pass the house and become a ^w.

Germania Standard: The Algona papers are making quite a fight over the salary question. Heretofore we have kept aloof from the discussion, because we have not considered the subject of any great importance one way or the other. But there seems to be considerable alarm on the part of the officials, because it is ovidently a fight of the farmer against the high rate of _ y ,-, taxation in Kossuth county. The main 1JXI Li, part of the fight is being waged against the salaries of the officials, and the demand is made to cut the salaries down so as to decrease the taxes in that proportion. Now the Courier of course has been adding its fagots to the blaze, because it sees a meagre chance to slide in a democratic officer or two next fall on the tax issue. Last week, however, it frankly stated that it does not believe the salaries are too high, and at the same time insists that the taxes are. We have looked up the salary expenses and the taxable valuation of the county property and don't see much cause for alarm. The total amount paid in county official salaries is f 10,050. The fees paid into the county ot- fices is $4,772.51, for 1896. This would leave $5,278.49 to bo paid from the county funds, or, that would actual y come out of the taxes. The total taxable valuation of property is fS,300,OOU. Therefore the amount paid to salaries out of the taxes raised would be less th We l Sree l 'with the farmers that the taxes at the present time are burdensome, but as to the method of reducing them or making-the burden lighter, we do not at present care to say.
