the team might really bo called gentlemen of
England. While the latter b.mcii ever 400

hard lines , for the rain came down so hard
after making nearly SOU in the first inning
that the Quakers permitted themselves to bo
bowled for 05 in the second Inning. As they

Alnldoon Thinks Tlmt Gov. Lowry
Mrana BinlneKS.
ROCHESTER , N. Y. , August 11. William
Muldoon , the trainer of Sullivan , was in
Rochester n few hours to-day. Ho had comeback
back from Now Orleans , wlioro tie wont to
look after Sullivan when the champion was
arrested and taken to the state of Missis
sippi at the instigation of Governor Lowry.
Muldoon said ho did not see any bright pros-
pocr. for Sullivan getting off easy. "You
sec , " ho went on , "Governor Lowry did not
so much care that the fight took
place in his state iu suite of his proclamation ,
but lie smarted under the gibes of the news
papers , nnd especially annoying to him were
the humorous rhymes thai everywhere ap
peared in ridicule of him. At first the
southern newspapers claimed he was making
so much noise for the purpose of getting a re-
nomination. When ho failed to secure that
then the papers said ho would drop the effort
to punish the lighters. That mndo him mad
and ho redoubled his energy and determina
tion to punish both Sullivan and Kilraln. Wo
hud all arranged to have the trial comooftbe-
fore the county Judge in the same county
where the 'fight took place and It was
understood that this Judge would only
impose a fine , but on tbo day fixed for the
trial the governor and state prosecuting at
torney went into the judge's court and
frichtoncd him. Ho was not used to dealing
with such big men as governors and alter
noy generals , and therefore ho weakened
and sent the case to another court , in whica
Sullivan will not faro as well. The trial
comes up next Tuesday , and , if convicted , ho
will probably bo imprisoned n year nnd
fined $1,000. Ho is now at Lookout with
Uud Hen and. Wo got him out on
bail and ho will bo present for
trial. Of course , much will depend upon the
Jury. I don't believe they can secure evi
dence from people who saw the light , unless
it bo from some who are mad because Sulli
van whipped ICilruin and made them lose
their money. I was advised to net out
of the state , und I got. They could
fine me $ .500 and send mo to Jail for
a year if they should convict mo of
being Sullivan's tralnor. And yet if
wo are both to bo locked up , I want to go In
when ho does so wo can got out together. It
would not be funny at all to have him got
thrco months' start of me In the Jail. What
wo wanted to do was tp get the case post
poned from time to time until Lowry nnd
some others he is commanding should got out
of office. But I guess ho will not allow that.
At least he acts as though be intends to make
us sweat. Before this matter is ended it will
cost $10,000 , but if wo could have staved off
the trial for a year wo could have gene ahead
giving sparring exhibitions und mudo SlOO-
000. I'm going homo to Belfast , and I pro
pose to stay thure. "

Larrabco In Not a Candidate.
DBS MOIXES , la. , August 11. [ Special Tol-
cpram to THC HUE. ! The chief topic of in
terest in Iowa now is the republican state
convention , which meets hero next Wednes
day. The delegates huvo all been chosen ,
but so many of them are unlnstructed _ , and
these who are Instructed are divided among so
many candidates , that no certain prophecy of
the result can yet bo mado. The contest has
been livelier than any contest for governor
for many years. Tlio fact that n republican
nomination is equivalent to an election makes
tbc ambitious patriots hustle for the former
with great alacrity and sweet delight. It
has been unusual for candidates to begin the
fight so early us they have this timo. Both
Mr. Wheeler nnd Mr. Hull have boon after
the nomination for years. The latter wanted
it four years ago , when Larrnbco was nomi
nated. Ho took the second plnco when the
first , WAS outside tils reach , still hoping and
oxbcctlng that the first would later como
within his grasp. So ho has not forgotten
his cbiof dcslro during the last'four years ,
though his special activity for the nomina
tion began about a year and a half ago ,
Mr. Whcolor , after an ineffectual effort to
receive political honors in several lower de
grees , concluded about two years ago that ho
would like to bo governor , and so started the
ball In motion. Ho has worked Ilka a Trojan
ever since , and If ho doesn't succeed It. will
not bo said that ho hasn't been "sawing
wood. " Ho has kept the old saw hot night
nnd day , nnd has not begrudged the money
necessary to oil It up frequently.
Senator Hutchison began to feel the bee In
his bonnet about two years ago , or , to speaic
moro exactly , during tbo legislature which
mot a year ago last winter. Ho had , been a
member of the senate many years , had
"loafed around the throne , " so to speak , and
had seen the power nnd influence which
were wielded by the cbiof Executive of the
stato. The position looked quite attractive
to a man of dignified tastes and ambitions ,
und the more ho thought about it the moro
ho concluded that Governor Hutchison
would sound much moro delightful than Sen
ator Hutchison. Ho did not , however , al
low his ambition to focus public attention
until this spring. Then ho started out on a
missionary tour of the state , und has been
celling acquainted with tbo puoplo ever
since. His canvass has been short but dig
nified , and apparently quite successful.
There have been many amusing features
in the preliminary canvass for tho"governor
ship. Each candidate has had his own way
of making the race. Mr. Wheeler Isknown
as the great letter writer. He evolved the
novel theory that a personal letter to several
thousand men would not only help to make
him acquainted , but 7ould gratify a good
many und secure their friendships. " * 'Ho
knew that there are many men who don't
got a letter once in three months , and no
correctly reasoned that a letter from a
man who was a candidate for governor
asking their support , would gratify their
vanity and make them think they were of
some account. So bo started his clerks , and
they took names from everywhere they could
got them census tables , subscription lists ,
etc. , etc. , and begun to grind out the letters.
At the middle of Juno last over eleven thou
sand letters , signed by Mr. Wheeler had
been sent out ever the stato. The.number
has probably been increased since then. Hut
the passion for letter writing didn't stop
with thcso messages to the general'public. '
It now appears that ho has been following
up the delegates as fast as they have been
chosen , with invitations to call upon bam at
his headquarters Just before the convention.
One of Captain Hull's leading supporters ,
who lives hero at the homo of Cantaln Hull ,
und had been instructed by this countyto
vote for Hull , was much amused at receiving
ono of these letters , dated at Odobblt , and
substantially as follows :
Dear Sir : I understand that'you are a
delegate to the republican stnto convention.
Plcuso call upon mo ut parlor F , at the
Savory next Tuesday.
Yours truly ,
Some persons would think that ttils was
the climax of gall , but Mr. Wheeler has no
idea that it is. It has simply become second
nature with him to write letters asking for
support , und nvithciMr. . Hull or Mr. Huch-
Insoti , would be surprised If thoy'should yet
receive letters from him asking them to
withdraw in his favor.
Captain Hull lias a different way of cam
paigning. Ho whoops it up to ttip Grand
Army mon , and says : "Now boys , you uin't
going to see the old soldier get loft , uro youJ"
and then they enthuse , und starfnut to do
missionary work for the captain. Ho has a
very free und familiar way of meeting his
friends and saying things to please them , and
they think that Hull is ono of the boys. Ho
hasn't traveled ever the state very much in
this campaign , having done most of ihis trav
eling boforo. Ho has written u good many
letters , but they were mohtly to his lieuten
ants , who have kept him posted on the way
thingswere going , nnd he in return sends
them inspiring messages to stir up the
Grand Army boys and got them to work. If
things looked bad la any county that ho ex
pected to carry , ho would only need to slip
up there and hold u camp lire with the boys ,
and got thorn stirred up on the old soldier
question without mentioning his own candi
dacy. '
Senator Hutchlnson has taken nthlrd style
of campaigning. Ho also was a union soldier ,
but he has not undertaken to work the Grand
Army. Ho has traveled more on his general
record ns a legislator and business man.
When ho striken u town where he lias an no-
qualntanco they start out tot'etlior and cullen
on the representative business men , and the
senator In his modest way Intimates that ho
is a candidate , but Is not making any fight on
the otherj. Ho assures them that ho Is In
favor of conservative legislation , Keeping In
view the advanced needs of the public on all
progressive matters. He has u pleasant and
courtly way of meeting men and makes a
good impression , .Ilo was never known to
slap a man on the back or call a crowd of
patriots , "boys. " His quiet style of cam
paigning has mudo him a good many friends ,
and it remains to be seen whether it liai
made him many votes. His hope is that
after the convention has balloted a few times ,
and neither of tire leaders secures u majority ,
the delegates will turn to him.
Governor Liirrubeo will have fourteen
voles cast for him on the first ballot. Hut ho
Is positively not u candidate and would not
accept n nomination if it were tendered. Mr.
Crape , of Burlington , will have eighteen
votes on the 11 ret ballot , the complimentary
vote of his own county. It is understood
that his uppcaruuco us a candidnto now is
simply to introduce him , with a view to
bringing him out a few years later.
All three of the leudlngcaudldates are now
in the city , but they have not broken or oven
cracked tbo tiabbath by any activity. They
ar.o all In good spirits , and eaoh ono an
nounces contldentlally that ho is very well
satisfied with the outlooic. They each huvo
a different estimate- tholr relative strength
up to this time. Senator Hutchison , who Is
conservative in figures as well us in other
things , divides the delegates at , this time
about us follows ;
Hull 425 , Wheeler 419 , and ho keeps for
himself 235. Of course , they all give Gov
ernor Larabeo 11 votes , uud Mr. Crape , of
Burlington , 18 votes , but that IB only for one
ballot. There Is a very largo uninstrueted
vote , that will bo Influenced In its choice
utter reaching here , No man cun tell DOW
where these votes will po.Bach candidate
Is hopeful of Uniting the majority on hlmtolf ,
but has no assurance yet that it can bo done.
The farmers' alliances are -for Mr. Wheeler ;
the Grand Army mon largely for Captain
Hull and the conservative ttmsracts mon for
Senator Hutchison , The loiter undoubtedly
holds the balance of power if ho can keep
his force well In hand.
The lieutenant governorship Is In ttio back
ground awaiting the oho lee for first place.
The two active candidates for this position
are Senator Finn , ot Taylor county , and
Senator Poynor , of Tama county. The work
ers are expected to arrive to-morrow nnd
warm things up Immediately.
Hut passing from politics to something
moro serious , this letter can properly close
with reference to the myatorlous disappear
ance of a Hurliugton bridegroom about to bo ,
that is now agitating that peaceful city. Tha
youog man , whoso homo was In Tipton , came
on to marry ayouug lady nt West Hurling-
ton last Wednesday evening. Ho arrived In
duo time , and during the day procured a 11-
cense of the county clerk , engaged a minis
ter , nnd mndo nil nccdfnl arrangements , The
wedding was to take place In the evening ,
and toward night ho drove out to the house
of tha expectant bride. Ho Jumped out of
the buggy nnd started for the barn to put up
the horse , nnd that was the last seen of him.
The bridal party anxiously walled his return
turn , and finally began an unsuccessful
search. No ono has bcon able to get n clue
to his whereabouts. It looks like another
case of "Banker" Hrown , of Wichita.

Submerged Land Speculators.
ST. JOSEPH , Mo. , August 11. [ Special
Telegram to TUB BBS. ! A company has
been formed in St. Joseph for the purpose of
buying nnd recovering laud owned by private
parties , now washed'tnto ' tbo Missouri. The
company has a $1,000,000 , and will
attempt to secure the title to a strip of prop
erty 100 feet wide , which is now in the river ,
and extends from Prospect Hill to the river
bridge and on down to tbo'southorn limits of
the city. The company think that the par-
tics who have lost their property by the en
croachment of the river In years past , will
bo perfectly willing togive up all right und
title to it for a very small consideration. In
many Instances it expects that title can bo
secured for the asking. The land when re
deemed will bo used for railroad rights of
way. A local real estate broker has been
offered $100,000 to secure titles to the prop
erty wanted.

For some time pnstconsldcrablo discussion

shortly after the war , and It Is believed that
beneficial results would follow such action
now. Since the original publication of the
proposal of the president the war department
onldals have given their attention to the
causes which depopulate tho'army. From
Into statistics it is shown that the ovll is
largely on the increase. During the six
months ending Juno 80 , 18S9 , the records
show an Increase of 135 over the number re
ported for the corresponding period
of last year. For the past
six months of the present year thcro wcro
1,407 desertions , against 1,209 for the same
period in 1880. Fully seven-eighths of the
desertions tnko place during the first year of
enlistment. The Importance of those figures
Is appreciated by General Syollold and Adju
tant General Welton. each of whom has
given the subject much attention and discus
sion lately , ana some plan of action which
will look toward the modification of the ox-
Istini ; articles of war will reccivo tholr ear
nest advocacy uud bo presented to congress.
The numerous desertions , especially from
the larger army posts , nro the nourco of
much unxloty to the ofllcials In the war de
partment , and they will strike ut the root of
the evil , if such a thin ? is possible. Quito a
number of ofllcers believe that ono of the
best ways to break up desertions in the nrmv
would bo to put. a stop to the soldiers doing
so much extra work. When a man enters
tno army ho oxoccts to become a soldier ;
when ho finds that in addition to his uut.y
as a soldier ho has to do all the
work around the garrison and officers' quar
ters , the soldier feeling dies out , nud ho de
serts at the very first opportunity , generally
in the ilrst year of his enlistment. A de
crease in the number of useless calls now
prevalent at army ocsts will also , It is said ,
result in fewer desertions.
Preparations are going on at a rapid rate
for the forthcoming conclave of Knights
Templar. It was proposed by the local or
ganization to offer prizes foj * competitive
drills , and with that end in view correspond
ence was opened with the proposed visitors
in all sections of the country. Tims far the
responses received have hud a dampofilng
effect upon the subject and it is now about
decided that there will bo no competitions ,
but instead that there shall bo several ex
hibition 'drills by different commanderics.
There is a schema on foot which Is llkelv to
como toahoad ono way or another at the next
mooting on Saturday of 'this week for a series
of exhibition drills to bo given with a view to
raising a fund for the purpo q of aiding in
erecting a homo'to bo established InVnshT
iugton. The committees on arrangements
are daily receiving additional notice of tbo
contemplated visit of nioro commandurics ,
and is thought now that the total number of
such organizations hero will be between 250
and SoO. There will bo a hundred bands of
music for the grand parade with a total ot
2,500 pieces" . The work of resurfacing Penn
sylvania avenue was actively begun last

Secretary Rusk , of the agricultural de

in the government service. Ho believes in
getting as much pleasure out of llfo as is pos

into his official acts at times. Not long ago
ayoungtwomau hero , who desired to earn a
little pin money , wont to Mr. Huak and said
that she was anxious to some of the
bags to make for the agricultural depart

which seat at the table ho occupied. She
wont to his house ono evening and said :
"Mr. Secretary , I am very anxious to secure -
cure Roino work from tbo agricultural de
partment , and I want some of those bags
which they are making over there to take
homo. I am informed , sir , that If 1 could

culture that it will assist mo materially In
getting the aid I want. Now , Mr. Secretary ,
please aid mo , and give raa a note. "
It happened that the secretary had had
about a thousand appeals to listen to in the

oxhaust'ed , but he did not disclose hla iden
tity. He told the young woman that ho
might have some Influence with the secre

or the secretary of war , but if there was ono
place under the government where ho did
not have the least influence it was K.I the agri

Brian remained through the previous admin

things about political apostasy , and have
been trying to surreptitiously secure the re

"Is It true that there is any consldotablo
falling oft iu the number of national banks in
this country ! " Tbo question was asked of
Comptroller Lacoy. Ho replied ;
"It la not truo. On the contrary there are
moro national banks to-day than there over
wore before in the history of the govern
ment. Wo are chartering them dally , and
the national banking business seems to bo in
thriving condition.1'
"Is It not true that some of the older bauks
are throwing up tuclr charters ] "
"Yes , it has happened that a number ot
national banks fu the larger cities have do-
ciilod to discontinue business as national in
stitutions , aud to go on under state charters. "
"What reason do you usaleu for this , Mr ,
"Well , there nro many reasons. Ono of
them is that when the national bunking sys
tem was first organized a considerable profit
could bo made out of circulation , Hands
could then bo purchased at low rales , which
drow-i , 4) orU per cent interest. Interest
was paid regularly , and the banks werg en
abled to make money by loaning out the bills
Which were issued to them upon the deposit
of the bonds. Now , however , bonds com
mand a higher premium , interest rates are
low , and the profits on circulation are com
paratively nothing. Onootlho requirements
of the national banking act Is tlmt no ono
borrower shall bo permitted to receive from
the bank moro than 10 per cent of the bank's
capital. Thin has proven an embarrassment
in many of the larger commercial centers
like Buffalo , for instance. A Buffalo uusto *
inor of n bank may have occasion to use for a
few dav ' say a hundred thoutanu dollars.
There has never boon n national bank In the
city with n capital ot a million , and the Buf
falo borrower must go to two or thrco insti
tutions to get this money. Under the
stnto law u bank Is not re
stricted , hence some of the Buffalo
banks have found It moroconvenient to carry
on business under the state charter. Hut iu
the west , In the now and thriving towns of
the territories , and the pralrlo states , the
national banking system holds lUown. There
is a stability about the word national which
in taking with customers , nnd the depositors
find that the restrictions of the law are a
safeguard to thorn. The result of it Is that
wo are constantly issuing charters for banks
iu the west , and in this respect Washington
territory shows surprising growth. No , "
continued Mr. Lacov , "thoro Is no reason
to think that the national banking system Is
falling Into disfavor. Its regulations have
been the basis of ntnta acts in several in
stances , notably In thucaso of my own state ,
Michigan , wlioro tbo state banking luw Is al
most identical in tha matter of restrictions
nnd Inspection with the national .banking
net. "

DBS MOINKS , la. , August 11. [ Special to
THE UEB. ] The senatorial muddle In the
Thirty-seventh district Is becoming moro com
plicated. The Ihrca counties in this district ,
Hurdin , Hamilton and Wright , have each put
a candidate , in the Hold. Ellsworth , of Iowa
Falls , the railroad candidate , needed only
throe votes from Wright to ofTact his nomi
nation , and railroad lackeys scoured tho"
county for weeks hoping to olcct a delegation
that would do the Ulddlug of the corpora
tions. When the county convention mot it
was found that Ellsworth had forty-ona del
egates , whllo forty-two were In favor of Cap
tain W. 13. Tyrrell , a Wright county farmer.
The forty-ono railroad cappers not being able
to control matters to their liking , bolted I ho
convention nud elected a contesting delega
tion. As Hardln will outvote Hamilton in
the senatorial convention , it is tha scheme of
the combines to admit thcso contestants by
the solid vote of Hurdin nnd then nominate
Ellsworth , and this will probably bo the re
sult. The chances are decidedly in favor of
u hugo bolt In tills , the strongest republican
district in the state , and the election of an
independent anti-monopoly senator.
The members of the alliance In this dis
trict have donned the war paint and nro out
gunning in dead earnest , uud from presort
appearances the railroad candidates for the
senate will find rough sledding in the "rural
districts" in that section. Ttio state central
committee may interfere and patch up a
truce before tlio election , and thus save the
district , to the party.
Tno city of DCS Molnes 1ms placed the
stamp of Its approval of the railway legisla
tion of two yearn npro in a most emphatic
manner. Senator C. II. Gatcli , who has held
tlu office of state senator but ono term , and
who , according to the general custom of tlio
party , is entitled to n second term , was over
whelmingly defeated In the city primaries ,
losing his own ward by 23 votes , 'i'ho county
precincts , which will speak to-tiny , will bo
still moro emplmUeJn condemnation of the
course of the senator in voting against Iowa
interests. The nomination of. Capkun C. L.
Watrous for senator is now assured , and by
n two-thirds majority of the delegates. .
Everyone of the railroad senators are nnd-
lug "thorns iu the way" of further political
preferment. Boltor , of Harilsou , the able
democratic leader of the corporation forces ,
Is "out of politics , " Woolson , of Henry ,
wlio did such good Rcrvico for tlio railroads
on the republican side , is having no cad of
trouble in straightening out his record with
his farmer constituents. Ilo lias s'ucceeded
in carrying the primaries of his own county ,
but Washington , thu other county in his dis
trict , is up in arms against him , and tlio end
is not yet. Tlio corporations generally take
good care of tholr "public servants , " and a
few moro campaigus is likely to release a
goodly nu mbor of them in this state. The
friends of General Weaver deny that ho has
anydcslgnsupon the democratic party. They
