M. Z. Grove & Son. DBS MOINES, May 4—The extra see* sion is fast drawing to a close and this week ought to end it. If it adjourns ott Saturday it will have heen in session llOdays, more than 20 days longer than any other Iowa session of the legislature. It has made more than twice as many changes in the law as any previous session and the changes have heen very important, nearly all along the lines of economy and more businesslike conduct of public affairs, as well as many other improvements. 102 E. State St. TBI/BFHOKB 19. Ribb May 7 and 8, we will place on sale a choice selection of wide, all-silk Ribbons The past week has been a rather quiet one, though some important actions have been taken. The houses are waiting for conference committees to report upon the points the two houses disagree on and these are usually adopted. Then the enrolling takes a great deal of time; important/amendments are usually printed in the journal and go over till the following day for consideration. The work at the last cannot be hurried. The printing and binding investigation is at an end. The house committee decided Saturday to stop the sensational evidence, stop the game of politics in the committee and prepare a bill at once to be introduced not later than Tuesday morning. The evidence taken by the committee has shown that the prices in the senate bill are fair— some witnesses say they are too low. Before this reaches your readers the house will probably haye passed the senate bill with slight modifications. Those who favor the contract system have no hopes of carrying their point. It has been finally decided that the state will publish and annotate its own code. The cost of annotation will be imited to $7,500 and will include federal annotations. The editor is to be elected tonight by the legislature. The code must be finished by Oct. ], 1897. -r- -J- •+• The fate of the Sunday baseball bill is still uncertain. The senate voted in favor of prohibiting it altogether, after voting down the committee recommendation allowing such games when they did not disturb any worshipping assemblage or private family. The house Friday spent the entire morning considering the subject. It adopted an amendment providing that the law should not apply to persons who observe some other day in the week than Sunday. An amendment by Judge will locate there or in Duluth. mother will come back to Algona month. Mrs. S D. Drake and Mrs. J. W. Hay were appointed delegates to the annual meeting of the women's clubs, which convened at Dubuque yesterday. David Miller, who has been studying pharmacy in Des Moines, came home Friday. He has passed the examination of the state board and will now look up a location. Rev. Landis goes to Des Moines Friday for the Baptist young people's meeting. He delivers an address in the afternoon on co-operation. This is the state meeting. Miss Maime Spencer, Col. Spencer's niece, closed her classes in china painting, and Monday returned to her home in Madison, Wis. She has made many friends in Algona. C. B. Matson came up from Rolla, Mo., last week. He refuses to confirm the rumors about his intentions on the Algona Matrimonial club, but the boys here fear the worst. First the other papers had S. S. Sessions going east, and now have Mrs. Sessions in Now York. Mrs. Sessions Is'nt her old home in Sioux City and will return in a couple of weeks. Mr. and Mrs. John Galbraith have gone to Penver to visit their son and for Mr. Galbraith's health. He has been under the weather all winter, and may not return to Algona before fall. Last week we left a note of E. B, Butler's return from California sticking on the editorial hook. He spent 10 days at San Diego, visited at Los Angeles, Passadena, etc., and went north to San Francisco. He saw the various Algonians. Jas. McLaren, he says, is in very poor health and will spend the summer in the mountains. Mr. Butler enjoyed his trip. J.

The house at last refused to concur in the senate amendment prohibiting such games, so the matter will probably be compromised in conference. The Cheshire amendment was again defeated in the senate Wednesday. It received but fourteen votes, three less than when it was first proposed. It _is probable that nothing will be done in that line until next winter. H- -i- -T- The conference committee on the Temple amendment reported it was unable to agree and asked to be discharged. Another conference committee has been appointed, those from the senate being firmly opposed to the amendment and the house members being opposed to the senate substitute but willing to leave the law as It is, so that is likely to be the result. As a result of the Funk investigation the joint committee has proposed some radical changes in the manner of conducting the state's business. A new and complete system of bookkeeping and accounting, which has been so long needed, is recommended. The powers of the executive council are greatly_ reduced, and the custodian is required to give an accurate accounting of all supplies, etc.,'handled in his department. A legislative committee is created consisting of the chairman of the ways and means, judiciary and appropriations committees of the two houses, which is to report a joint resolution to each legislature, stating the number and salary of clerks and janitors needed in each of the state offices. The state institutions are also to be examined at least once a year by an expert accountant appointed by the executive council. , L- YOUNG. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS.
