Republicans of Iowa assembled
ycsieruny at iJe.s ?Ioincs in stale
convention and renominated Wil
liam McFnrland for secretary of

The senate will to-morrow at 2
o'clock take up the bill for the free

W. I. Tomliuson, for seven years
past editor of the Kansas Demo
crat, published a card last night
severing his connection with the
paper and announcing that he
would support the republicans in
the coming campaign. Toinliiison
was one of the original Hill boom
ers, and after Cleveland's nomina
tion publicly stated that he would
bolt if a fusion electoral ticket and
the people's party state ticket was
supported by the democrats. Yes
terday a dispatch was received
from C. K. Holliday, Jr., editor of
the paper, from Chicago, stating
that Cleveland's name must be at
the head of the editorial page.
Tomliuson left the republican
party during the Glick campaign
and is given credit for having taken
50,000 republican votes out of the
party on the prohibition issue. In
the card announcing his return to
the republican fold he says that
the material welfare of the state
demands the defeat of the people's
party and that good citizenship de
mands the defeat of the "calamity
howlers." It is recognized that the
democrats will support the peo
ple's electoral ticket for the pur
pose of throwing the state out of
the republican electoral column.
Tomliuson announces that he "will
join in no bastard fusion move
ment that is utterly devoid of prin
ciple and which is simply a dis
gusting scramble for loaves and
The dispatches this morning an
nounced that President Harrison
had appointed General John W.
Foster, of Indiana, as secretary of
state, and that he was immediately
unanimously confirmed by the
senate. On account of the absurd
stories which have been published
in democratic papers of alleged dis
agreements between Mr. Blaine and
Mr. Foster in the Canadian negotia
tions the nomination of Mr. Foster
was at once followed by rumors that
the friends of Mr. Blaine in the sen
ate would oppose his confirmation.
This idle rumor, which was only
another device of the democrats to
encourage the false statements
about dissensions in the republican
ranks and among republican lead
ers, met a prompt death blow by the
immediate and unanimous confir
mation of Mr. Foster.
It is well understood that Mr. Fos
ter's tenure of the office of secretary
of state will terminate on March 4
next, when President Harrison will
again be inaugurated and when he
will announce his new cabinet.
The appointment of Mr. Foster is
therefore only a temporary one, de
signed to bridge over the interval
between the resignation of Secre
tary Blaine arid the beginning of
the second term of his adm'iiistra
tion. The appointment of Mr. Fos
ter, although temporary, is espe
cially desirable, not only on ac-
ountof the personal character and
diplomatic accomplishments of the
appointee, but also because of his
peculiarly intimate acquaintance
with the business of the state de
partment in general and espe
cially with the details of the most
nmportant question now before that
department the settlement of the
Bering sea controversy with Eng
land by arbitration.

The delegates to the prohibition
convention at Cincinnati put 'in a
hard clay's work, ending Iat last
night after three sessions. A per
manent organization lias been ef
fected, with Eli Kilter of Indiana as
presiding officer, and Sam Small,
the Georgia evangelist, as secre
tary, and to-day the convention will
be ready to pass upon the platform
and nominate their candidates.
In a general way Bidwell of Cali

the presidential nomination, while

25 Cents Until After Election.
The coming presidential and state
campaign will be one of the most
exciting ever known. During this
time you will want a newspaper that
is thoroughly in touch with public
sentiment, and one that prints the
news before it becomes stale. The
Semi-"eekl3" State Journal prints
the news several days earlier than
the old-fashioned weeklies, and
costs the same, $1.00 a year. A com
plcte paper twice each week Tues-
daj-s and FYidays. Giving 104 pa
pers a year, it is almost as good as
a daily. The old-time veekl3' is not
in it when it comes to printing
news. A year's subscription will
carry readers all through the cam
paign and the next session of the
legislature. A big dollar's worth.
A few of our offers: The Journal
a year and ' Stanley in Africa." $1.10;
Journal and Weekly N. Y. Tribune,
both one year, $1.25; Journal and
Oxford Bible, i?2.7.1; Journal and

A dirt train with about fifty Italian
laborers, who had been unloading a
train load of dirt up at the foot o
the cut, was backing down to the
depot for dinner this noon, when an
accident occurred which resulted
fatally to one and seriously
wounded three others. The men
were sitting on top of the dirt on the
cars when the train started for the
depot. Antoui Adli was sitting
about three cars from the caboose,
andjall of a sudden and without any
warning, the trucks of the car upon
which he was riding, jumped the
track, throwing him between the
cars which passed over him, cutting
him all to pieces. Three others
were more fortunate; two men i.nd
a boy were also thrown from the
cars. One man had his leg badly
bruised and the other 'had his left
arm badly hurt. The b03r was
