further facts * ribo \ \ elicited then.
The memorial to the Iowa legisla
ture.to enact n law like that in No-
bnulm relative to exemptions , has
ntirred up some of the business mon
of this city , and action has already
been taken looking to the defeat of
the movement. It is claimed that the
law proposed is instigated by the
Union I'acilio road , who object to bo-
iog annoyed by gufaisheen on debts
due by their employes , and that the
prepared bill , while accommodating
the Union Pacific , does away with the
protection needed by those having
credit , A committee of the board of
trade of this city ia now making
up n report on the matter.
Those dealing in wagons used to
get them shipped from Chicago hero
at $7fi a car , [ lacking twenty-eight in n
car , Now that the railways nro do
ing more business than then , und can
di > it cheaper proportionately , the
dealers nre obliged to pay the same
price for only twenty WI OMB. They
justly wonder why this is thus ?
Many of the property owners and
business men of Main atreet are los
ing faith in the promises of the city
council to have tlie lower end of that
street filled in , so that business can
be carried on. While they have been
waiting for this improvement neces
sary to business , work has been pushed
along on Union avenue. They say it
.should bo the other way business
first and pleasure afterwards.

mission on Free Pn-saoa.
DKS MOINP.S , In , February 8--In
the house of representatives yesterday
the railway commissioners made a re
port on the resolutions by Mr. Aldrich -
drich relating to the use of frco passes
by ollicinls , editors , nnd ot'.iors. The
report is in n humorous and sarcastic
vein , stating that they nro at n loss to
determine what classes are referred
to. Thu commissioners understand
that passes are given to the ollico , not
the man , as favors are novur extended
after ho goes out of ollico. They defend -
fond the taking of half-fare tickets by
the clergy , and think the ptises of
editors only pay for advertising , or
an interchange of the goods which
each has to sell. They think full
state conventions aru necessary in or
der to get proper candidates , nnd that
railroads , by giving reduced faro to
delegates , make more than otherwise
by the increased travel. They decline
to impugn thu motives of
JL'IKIKS OK COt'UTM AND HTATK OPKIORUH
in accepting free passes , nnd thinks
the free passes given to nhuriirif of
counties and police ollhora more than
compommiii HIIJ railroads by the addi
tional protection against lawlessness.
The commission recites that the prac
tice of giving passes to public ollicors
is as ( ild as the railway itself , and
probably antedating it , going back to
packet and steamboat times. The
earliest public notice of the pass sys
tem in the knowledge of the railway
commissioners of Iowa is a letter from
AN.HKI , IIAHCO.M
ex-moiubor of tlio Nun York house
of repreruntatives , from Seileca
onunty , in 18KJ. Bascom's letter to
the president of the Audubon it
Rochester railway company ( now part
of the Now York Uentr.il ) , in which
horoturncd apasstendurodhim , haying
ho was elected to represent the people
of his county not the corporationx ;
that ho went to Albany to innko IjiwH
to check nnd control them ; that prdpur
and 'egitimato ' mileage was paid him
by the state ; that to accept a pass ,
would bo a train ! upon the state and
a retainer frcm corporation ; that it
was his duty in behalf of hfs constitu
ents to watch and not allow the rail
ways to infringe on thu rights of thu
c.itmls. At that time the subject of
Allowing the railroads to c.irry fioight
in the summer and the repeal of the
law compelling them to pay canal tolls
wcro buing agitated. The commis
sioners cited the fact that the pr ; a of
the time dincussod 13ascom's letter ,
and generally treated it as a bit of
political clap-trap , written to give
Thu effect of the letter was ephem
eral , and Bascom dropped out of
night , and the reform of which ho
proposed to bo the loader was inter
red. From that day to this the com
missioners say thu momberd of the
legislature nnd state otlicers contin
ued to regard the railway pass as a
heritage. As an abstract proposition ,
the commissioners believe the pass
system merely an exchange of courto-
oics , nnd think no railways would bn
KJncl of a law prohibiting further puss-
giving , so that they could point all
applicants to it. To make such pro
hibition oiluctivu it should bu nation
ul. Thu commissioners thought if
any legislation were attempted on the
mutter it should be .radical ; that no
passes should bo insuod over any
road , not even to ollioors of connect
IT IS THOUdllT I'llOIIAlILK
tlio persons now using pisses might
compose 10 per cent of ( ho travel. If
free passes wuru taken away these per
sona would not travel half so much ,
thus making only 5 per cent to udd
to the price of the tickets of those
who paid fnru. It is claimed by the
railroads tlint complimentary free
transportation does not exceed 2 per
cent of the passenger-faro receipts.
The commissioners quote from thu
constitutions of Pennsylvania , Ar
kansas , nnd California , which have
provisions prohibiting free passes ,
Pennsylvania prohibition being abso
lute to all , Arkansas only iwainst
passes to state officers , nnd California
to all state officers except railroad
commissioners. The board regard thu
California coimtUution at thu best
model for legislative enactment. The
board understands that this legislation
in other states is si dead letter , but
WAITS the members of the lown legis
lature that from what the commission
ers know of the temper of the Iowa
roads , if such u prohibition is passed
into n law in this state , it will be rig
orously obeyed by thu railroads The
legislative enactments of Pennsyl
vania to carry out the constitution do
not apply to roads chartered buforo
its udi.ption , No law is found in the
Arlmnuus or California statutes to
curry out the constitutional provisions.

ceived with considerable applausu and

Ful in riddini ; iliat portion of
thu country of thu plagues , but ro-
anllt'd in tlio wolvcH taking refuge in
otbor parts of the township. The
animals have bcon exceedingly bold
and huvo not tdirunk from attacking
pnoplo. AH "Uncle John , " whoso
dwelling ia about two mil en iiouthwcst
of the city , wis wending hw way homo
last Saturday evening , with a basket
contniningproviHions on liisarmlio was
suddenly ctartlcd by the long doleful
howl of a wolf but a 'sboit distance
from him. This howl was soon an
swered by suvural short harka mid
grow more distinct ouch moment. In
the basket was some fresh beeksteak ,
which had undoubtedly attracted the
wolves , and "Undo John" stopped
short to cons ill or what it wast
beat for him to do. The only availa-
oblo wuapnn of defense within his
roach , WUH a heavy juck-knifo which
he c.irried , he having loft hia heavy
cano that ho always carries , in town.
The wolves wcio gradually iiear and
ho began to feel the necessity of get
ting out of the reach of them. The
only thing that ottered any refuge
was a fence which ho proceeded to
climb. The wolvoa by this time were
close on his heola and were nnxioua
to taato the steak. How to got out
of the dilemma "Undo John"
didn't know , but he proceeded
to prepare to give his assail
ants n warm reception and
his knife with " "
determination. Attar sitting on the
fence trying to look nis stubborn as
sailants out of countenance until his
position bucamo rather unpleasant , ho
concluded to satisfy the wolves' appe
tite with Bomp of the steak ; Hinging
them a few pieces , a brilliant scheme
entered his mind , to light the paper
around his provisions. This idea put
into pr.ictico was ellootual in driving
oil' the wolves and restoring "Undo
