M. Z. Grove & Son. lalbraith's Cloak a Cape S Iowa Solons Are Itapldly Getting Down to Business—Many Bills to Be Introduced. Representative Farley gets on one good committee^ that of appropriations. He is also on the committees of public health, woman suffrage, institution for deaf and dumb, military, senatorial and representative districts. Of these the woman suffrage committee may cut some figure. Col. Sessions was on this committee when he was In the house. The colonel was chairman of the committee on insurance during his term and Representive Mayne was chairman of the state university committee. Both were members of a lot of leading committees, in addition to a chairmanship, which Is quite an honor for a first termer. Mr. Farley has been liberally recognized for a fusionist, but the republicans have control of the committees. -«-•+-•*• The difference between the relative positions of counties sending new men and returning old • members Is seen by comparing Mr. Farley's appointments with those of Mart Whelan of Estherville. Mr. Whelan is on all the leading committees, including ways and means, appropriations, and railways, besides being chairman of the committee on constitutional amendments. The usefulness of a member depends largely on his committee work. Mr. Whelan Is in position to be one of the most influential members at this session, and he will take advantage of his opportunity. -H H- -4- The new code costs the state exactly $2.68 a volume. Talk about Iowa not getting its work cheap enoughl •*-•<- H- Gov. Drake's closing message was one of the longest ever read in Iowa. It summarized the state's business. The paragraph most discussed was that In which he opposed a single state board of control. He said: The incongruity of having the state university and the penitentiaries, the Agricultural college and the hospitals for the insane, the normal school and the Institution for feeble minded children all under the control of one and the same board, would, in my judgment, more than offset any benefit, pecuniary or otherwise, that could be derived from the proposed consolidation.

They were re-elected by acclamation. They are both genial and faithful public officials. 4-4-4- P. M. Madden of Spencer was badly beaten for warden of the Anamosa penitentiary. Hunter of Benton got 60 out of 93 votes on the first ballot. Warden Madden has been bitterly opposed ever since his administration began, one of his most influential critics being J. W. Doxsee of the Montlcel- lo Express. 4-4-4- The News reported the following: " The four free silver republican members, Boyd of Shelby, Christie of Hancock, Farley of Kossuth, and Hinkson of Guthrie, affllated with the democrats and participated in the proceedings of the caucus." It was understood in Kossuth that Farley would hold aloof from either caucus, and that the silver republicans would flock by themselves. 4-4-4- Seven members of the house are under 30 years of age, and five more are under 83. 4-4- 4- G. A. Nicholls of the Estherville Republican was unanimously elected journal clerk of the senate again. 4- 4- 4- The contest in the Wright-Hancock district is to be fought out. John Christie of Garner won on the face of the returns over F. C. Hartshorn of Clarion, and the latter claims a wrong count. The committee to investigate is: Messers. Eaton, Edwards, Brighton, Powers and Penick. Christie is the fusionist and is a brother-in-law of Lem Stookwell of Algona. Senator Funk says he will not have time to get up a bill for biennial elections, but that he would be glad to heartily support one. 4-4-4- Judge Carr is to introduce a normal school bill somewhat along the lines laid down in Gov, Shaw's inaugural. 4- 4- 4- LuVerne News: Geo. W. Hanna was at Des Moines with others. George says that the people of Kossuth will be better satisfied with Mr. Farley than with any representative heretofore. A bill legalizing the primary election system will be introduced in both houses. 4- 4- 4- The senate gave Mat. Parrott, ex- lieutenant governor, a solid gold watch as a mark of appreciation. But few men in Iowa have, or deserve more friends. 4-4-4- The best paragraph in Gov. Shaw's inaugural, because it presents a fact that has been purposely obscured, is the following: It is doubtful if the state levy can be appreciably reduced, certainly not if the custom shall continue of annually lowering the assessed valuation of the property of the state. That this expedient for reducing taxes has been resorted to in the past is most apparent. In 1871 the cattle of the state bore an average assessment of $13.37. This has been gradually decreased until in 1895 it reached $4.96. Horses in 1874 were assessed at $42.67, and in 1897 at $11.81. The live stock in Iowa was assessed $10,000,000 less in 1897 than 1889. A state levy of 2J- mills even upon this amount would have yielded $47,500 per annum. The assessed valuation of live stock has been reduced 27 per cent, since 1893; other personal property 4i per cent, and railroad property a fraction over one per cent. Assessed valuations must be maintained or increased levies must fol- low. The expense of state administrations does not decrease simply because property is undervalued by the assessors. On the contrary, the expense of the state has grown constantly, and in some items rapidly. The number of inmates of all our state institutions has very materially increased, and in several has more than doubled since 1890. 4-4-4- Speaker Funk got his committees appointed a week earlier than usual. He has broken the record, and seems to have made up very satisfactory committees. It is a tedious and thankless task to apportion 100 men and give them all the best place. INTERVIEW WITH BRYAN, Horace Maun Has a Long Visit With Win. Jennings Bryan. Horace Mann went to St. Paul last week for the big Bryan reception. He came to Mankato with Mr. Bryan and was driven about the city in the carriage with him. He was also invited to speak at the evening banquet, but on promise to come up during the campaign was let off. He says Bryan had great receptions at Minneapolis and St. Paul, also at Mankato. He tells several things of interest about the young man of destiny. He does not drink at all. He is not paid for bis work but makes up expenses by occasional lectures. Mr. Mann heard him decline an offer of $300cash foraleoture because his time is all spoken for. Mr. Bryan was in Minnesota to work up a fusion on governor this fall, and Mr. Mann says a fusionist is going to be elected. , THE IOWA LAW IB GOOD. Goo. E. Clarke's Big Hallway Case is Settled In the United States Supreme Court. The United States Supreme court •holds against Geo. E. Clarke in the case he went to Washington to argue some weeks ago. A shipper from Sheldon, Solan, was hurt while taking stock to Chicago. The Milwaukee company had a contract with him limiting Its liability in such cases to $500. But Solan in his suit was awarded $1,000, and the Iowa courts sustained the verdict, because we have a statute making all the contracts limiting the liability of railways for accidents void. Mr. Clarke appealed to the United States courts and claimed that as this was an inter-state shipment, and that as contracts limiting liability are recognized outside of Iowa, the Iowa statute was an interference with inter-state commerce and not in force. The supreme court holds with the Iowa courts that this position is not correct, and that the Iowa law is not an interference with inter-state commerce. Why Scrub Orm rvlm the clothes all in rags!

The mill is turning out a fine quality of gold and the supply is apparently without limit. ' BURNED TO DEATH. Tlios. Weir, Who Was Burned at Germania, Died—Burled atWhlt- temore. Thos. Weir was pressing hay near Germania. He traveled In a covered wagon and had a gasoline stove in it to cook on. In filling the stove begot oil on his clothes. When he struck a light the whole wagon was in a blaze and he was so badlv burned that after a week he died. He was 38 years old, well connected at Emmetaburg. He leaves a wife and three children. He was buried at Whittemore a week ago yesterday. BIG CUT IN The Wetmore Truss FEBRUARY TERM JURORS, Men Who Will Adjust Our Bights Next Month— A Good List.

It is not decided yet that a fair will be held this year. The directors will decide In March whether to compete with Omaha or not. Mr. Wadsworth's election was doubly complimentary inasmuch as Mr. Johnson of Humboldt is also on the board. ' PROM THE GOLD FIELDS, Judge Quarton 10 Home Again— Gep.
