egram toTnu ! Jni.1 The inovomBnt among
republicans for the modification of the pro
hibitory luw Is assuming largo proportions.
Local clubs are bolng organized all ever the
state , and some of the best republicans and
lending cltuens are Joining them. At Fort
Dodge the now association has 270 signatures
to the roll , all republicans. At ICooKuk thcro
nro at least 500 republicans on the roll. There
are larger clubs in all the river cities , for it
Is thcro whore the law has proved ineffectual ,
and the need for some form of regulation of
the saloons 19 fellatio most. Among these
cngac&l in this movement nro Sunday school
superintendents and church workers , who
have found that prohibition as a state law
does not meet the requirements of the time } .
They want high lloanso withstrlngant regula
tions In place oTopen salbans nnd no control
whatever , ns is tbo cann In HO many of the
larger cities. Ona of the men In active
sympathy with the movement In n Methodist
minister , a. presiding older in charge of
ono of the districts in eastern
Iowa. Another of the leaden In this
movement is Hon. John W. Irwln of Kcokuk.
Ho was mayor of the city a couple of years
ago , and determined that as mayor he would
enforce the law , at any cost , so ho hired
officers at his own expense , and closed all
the saloons and dives , but when ho came up
for rc-olcction ho was beaten by an over
whelming majority , In spite of his great per
sonal popularity. Ho is satisfied that prohi
bition cannot bo enforced where a majority
of the people nro opposed to'it. Another of
the leaders in the movement is Major
Thompson of Linn county , formerly a mem
ber of congress from that district. Hois
ono of the wheel horses of the uarty. Tiiero
is a largo stub at this place , Marlon , includ
ing many of the leading republicans of the
town. There are now ever ilvo thousand ro'-
publicans who have Joined tnls movement.
The conference will bo hold hero April 2 ,
when , it is. expected about two hundred .rep
resentative republicans will bo present , The
geueral fooling seems to bo in favor of. se
curing a modification of the present law this
session if possible. It not , then they will
advocate a local option plank in the next
republican state platform.
A good deal of feeling in belog stirred up
in the state over the talk of building n
soldiers' monument. Two years ago the
Grand Armv tiosis very generally pctttionod
the legislature to begin such un undertaking.
There seotned to bo no opposition to it and
the legislature took the initiatory stuos by
providing for a commission to select designs
and by appropriating ? o,000 for models nnd
other necessary expenses of the commission.
The comtmasion wan composed of some of
the leading men of the state , representing
both parties. It advertised for designs , of
forcd prizes for tbo best model and finally
selected ono that seemed to the commission
to bo the most appropriate. It was nxpected
that thin general assembly would continue
the work and authorize the erection of the
monument. Uut meantime the old soldiers
sonm to have changed their minds , or at
least a good deal of opposition to the move
ment nas unexpectedly come from old
soldiers. A largo number of petitions have
been sent to the legislature protesting
ngainsl the erection of n monument nt this
time , usually coupled with n request
for n hospital to 'bo connected with
the soldier's homo at Marshnlliowu.
uounior pmiuons nru now uut-iniuni 10 ap
pear asking that both the monument and
hospital bo erected , since the expense of the
latter will bo comparatively smMl. A grow
ing feeling prevails in favor of using .1 con
siderable part of the direct war tax if ic is
refunded to the state for the erection of the
monument. Iowa's almro in that tax is
about $313,000. It. is proposed to take about
(200,000 of It and build u monument that
shall bo a worthy and listing memorial of
the valor of Iowa's soldiers. If this ivero
done thcro would bo no increase in the taxes
and no state institution would lose any ap
propriation by reason of the monument en
terprise. Tno hospital would he built and
the regular appropriations would not ba In
terfered with. The department commander
of the grand army for Iowa Is very strongly
in favor of this plan , and ho says that n
largo number of posts will petition for it at
the proper time.
The Iowa railroad law Is to bo tested on anew
now point. It provides now that the com
missioners may make rates on lines of road
between any twD Iowa points , oven if the
road has to go outsida of the state u part of
thu distance between ! them , The Milwaukee
road lias refused to put in the commissioner's
rates between LSoloit and Sioux City , on the
ground that as their road for n part of the
distance uocs outside of Iowa , and into Da
kota , it wns interstate traflic ever which the
Iowa commissioners had no control. Thu
state law insists that they have , and the
road clnllns that the law in unconstitutional
and will appeal to the United States court
for a decision on this point.
It scorns qulto probable that the Icglsln-
lutura will make nn appropriation for the or
ganization of a Htatu military band. It Is
understood that the committees in ouch
house having tha bill m chargu nru favorable -
able to it. Thu plan Is to have a largo mili
tary bund located at Dos Monies to ba nt the
service of the state whenever the state wants
music. Such a band would play for inaug
uration exorcises and during the sessions of
tha legislature and wherever thu atato was
officially celebrating. It would also repre
sent Iowa at national convent ions , fairs , etc. ,
nnd furnish muslo whenavor the governor
and staff were officially called out. The Idea
is very favorably received by the legislature
and it seems likely to result In the establish
ment of thu baud.
Members of tha supreme court and others
nro strongly urging the establishment of an
appellate court to relieve tno higher court ot
much of the work that now crowds it. The
present supreme court is of tbo same size
that it was a-jvoral yours ago whun tbo
amount of business before It was much less ,
The supreme Judges are worked very hard ,
having twica as much to do as the federal
judges In thu state. It is proposed by a Dill
now pending In the legislature that the supreme
premo court shall appoint three district
judges to sit and act as an appellatecourt. .
They will hold three sessions a year , each
suasion being at the capital and alternating
with the sessions , of the supreme court. The
term of the Judges U to ba four years and
their Jurisdiction Is to extend to cause * at
law ami In equity Involvinir $1.500. The ap
pellate court U to have nn Jurisdiction over
criminal causes or causes involving the con
stitutional construction of a statute , leaving
Jurisdiction of that klad for thu Buuromo
court as at present. Tno bill , If passed , Is to
take effect January 1,1S91 , unit all cases of
thu proper kind that are apncalod after July
1 , Ib'JO , are to full to the appellate court.
Thu bill U modeled somewhat uftor the Illi
nois statute and Is securing very hearty en
dorsement from tbo lawyers.
A now feature In the next state fair will
bo a lawn tennis tournament open to all ama
teur players in thu state. There will be
prizes for singles and doubles and the prin
cipal trophies must be won three successive
years bv the same elub In order to bo re

bo several courts so thatf the playing can go
on in thn different clasM nt the same tlmo.
The tournament will bo tinder the direction
of the Jcs Momcs tennis club.

The Das Momc.n & Kansas City railroad
recently tried n novel oipanmont In the wnv
of scouring business. An application had
been made to the commissioners to have
them corapol the railroad to build a depot
and tbo necessary shipping facilities at a
ooint named Leslie on the line of the road In
southern Iowa. The 'commissioners re
quested the road to do so , but It rotusod , al
leging that there wan ndt suniclont business
at that paint to justify the cxuonso of build
ing u depot. Then the commissioners put
their request in the fortp of an order , giving
the road thirty days In which to comply
with It , Tbo general manager ol the road
has replied with a proposition In which ho
asks the commissioners to wrlto down to
Leslie for signatures , tit Is in effect a bond
in tno sum of > , which , each of the parties
asking for n depot Is requested to sign. The
bond is to support an tigroemont that each
one of the parties asking for a depot will do
all of tholr shipping at Hint point und all of
their buying an well. The general manager
says that ho Is satisfied that the men who
nnk for the depot would do very lltilo
shipping at that point If facilities were furnished -
nishod thmn , and ho wantj to test their sin
cerity by this bond. THe commissioners re
turned the proposition to the general man
ager with the answer that It wan uot In tholr
line of business , and that \vnori tbo thirty
days was up , If the station was not built the
attorney general would bo Instructed to
bsgin suit tn unforco tha order of the com
missioners. * '
Great preparations nro being mndo for the
annual encampment of thu Grand Army de
partment of Iowa , which will bo hold In this
city April 7 , 8 and 0. It in expected that
there will bo n larger attendance than ntany
meeting before. The committee on enter
tainment Is figuring on an attendance of
20,030 visitors. General Algor will bo pres
ent , nnd probably MK Lo's'an. Several
Grand Army of the Kepubllc oHlcials from
neighboring states nro expected to attend
ntso. On Tuesday afternoon , the second day
of the encampment , the grand parade will
take place. It Is probable that it will end
the line of march at thn capital , where It will
bo received by the governor and both
branches of the legislature.

for prohibition In the homo. By common
consent the question will coma up at that
time for final action , and the Dsnt bill and
the democratic caucus liigh license bill will
be the subject of prqfoupd oratory. It in an
open secret that several democratic leaders
do not really care to make any change in the
law this soislon , as they-confidoutly hooo to
bo able to ride into power' ' two years nonce
on this Issuo. They r ofess to bellovo that
the popular demand for.tho repeal of prohi
bition by that tlmo will reach high tide ana
sweep the republicans.from power with an
irresistible impetus.
in inc senate , wuicn sitinus iwcniy-cignt
republicans to twenty-two in opposition , the
party lines on this i uostton are not so
strictly drawn , though.- the liberal repub
lican members will hardly consent to carry

will bo supported by the author and
Honchett ( rep. ) of Uretnor , and possibly by
Smith of Linn and Parrott of Blackhawk ,
which with the solid opposition vote would
bo enough to pass it , but Englo ol Jasper
( union labor ) and Barnett ( rop. ) of Warren
both favor the law as it is.
Senator Hancbett is vary emphatic in expressing -
pressing his views on this question. Ho
Hays : 'Tho republican party cannot afford
to carry this load any longer. It seems tome
mo it Is the part of wisdom when they see
the snip sinking to unload. The republican

will be repealed , but the honor will fall to
the democrats , who will be in power. " Sena
tor Lawrence thinks Sioux City is hampered
by the prohibitory law , but is moro roiervod
in expressing Ins opinion.
The railroad committee of the senate , of
which Mcservey of Cherokee is chairman ,
has failed to distinguish itself as its friends
hoped , and has lost a golden opportunity to
make a record. Tno 2-cont faro bills and the
trunk bill making mileage and tloketn "good

measures and demanded by thu people with
substantial unanimity , have been reported
back adversely by this committee. They ,
however , have drafted a bill conferring
power on the board of railroad commission

move , besides bolng of ttoubtful constitution-
nlity , is not what the 'peoplo nnlted for , and
It cannot satisfy the B'armor ' alliance.

The mombora of J.ho ways and moans com

In compliance- with the petitions of the
lllaclc Hills tin mine ownars they placad n
duty on tin , which tmi brought to Washing
ton nil the canned goods packers In the
United States , who say that It will ruin tholr
business , as C'J par cant of the value of n
package of canned fruit is the can. They arc
willing that the duty should betaken
taken off canned goods entirely If
they can have free tin , for they
can then compote with foreign cr.npatl' j.
The boot mill shoo nun throughout uio
country are maKin ? a similar row ever the
tax ofX cants a pound tint lias bajn Imposed -
posed upon Imported hliloi , and the lumbar-
men nre oven mono tlomonstnitivo ever the
proposed reJuctlou of the duty on lumber.
In lacl the hotels nro crowded with people
from ull parts of the country who came hereto
to protest against the bill as it now stands.
The lumbermen have succeeded in secur
ing a restoration of the duty us it now
stands nnd the committee has promised
not to disturb it. There w.-w no suspicion
on the part of the members representing thu
lumber districts that the duty on that article
was to bo disturbed , and t hero fore they were
greatly incensed when they discovered
n cut had been made. Messrs. Houtcllo of
Maine and McCormaclc of Pennsylvania
called a meeting of all the members whoso
constituents nro interested in this subject ,
and they marched on the committee on ways
and means in n boby. Never 1ms thoru been
in congress so loud n protest of this ehnr-
actor , und it was explained that the reduc
tion of the duty was miido upon the motion
of Kepresentativo llurrows of Michigan , who
It is said , has same constituents who nro
largely interested in Canadian timber lands
and want a chance to got their product into
tbo United Status.
Mr. Sherman's trust bill , on which bespoke
spoke last Friday , is n special order in the
senate thli weak and will awaken a long nnd
earnest dobato. There is a decided differ
ence of opinion as to the constitutional right
of congress to intorfcro with trusts ana a
good many of the senators do not want
trusts interfered with. Even among tho33
who nro In favor of government regulation
there Is a decided difference of opinion as to
the method In which It shall bo done.
And now cornea Senator Ingalls , who of
fers as an amendment to the trust bill some
thing , hltotho.liutterworth anti-speculation. ,
law , which provide ? that all parsons'engaged
in dealing In options and futures must multo
application to the commissioner of Internal
revenue for n license to transact such busi-
noHs , for which they shall pay tha sum of
? 1OUO a year , and that all transactions in
options or futures shall bo registered in the
o111co of the collector of internal revenue for
the district in which they take place. In ad
dition to this license it is required that ull
dealers shall pay die sum of 5 cants a
pound for ovcry pound of cotton , beef ,
porlr , lard or ottior hog or cattle product nnd
the sum of SO cents per bushel for overv
bushel of grain which they may sell to bo
delivered at a future time ; that every trans
action in options or futures shall bu In writ
ing and signed In duplicate nnd the tax
noove imposed snail bo puld to the collector
within twenty-four hour.4 after the sale
takes place. Any persons dealing in options
nnd futures without a license or without ,
payment of the tax shall bo lined for ouch
offense not less than 50 and not more than
? IUO , or imprisoned for not loss than six
months or more than two years.
Tha caucus committee of the senate has
decided that after the trust bill Is disposed
of what is known as the dependent pension
bill will be taken up and acted upon without
further delay. The republican caucus has
adopted a new rule , which will prevent sen
ators from having certain bills laid over in
definitely , ns they do now , in order to give
thmn timeto prepare speeches. Those who
aru opposed to certain measures have used
this practice to postDDno tbolr consideration ,
nnd tu many cases successfully , but
now the party In power has decided
that when n bill is once taken up
it shall bo the regular order until disposed
of unless sot nsldo by a majority vote of the
senate. I'lils will compel the senators who
are opposed to the dependent pension bill
and similar legislation nnd dare not show
nctivo opposition to fnco the music. The de
pendent pension bill , ns I have described in
previous dispatches , gives n pension to every
soldier of the late war who is Incapable of
supporting1 himself : also to parents and wid
ows of deceased soldiers who are in similar
circumstances. It is estimated that
It will require an appropriation
of fJo,000,03a , annunllv to moot
the claims that will bo tiled under It.
Thn next legislation in order will bo the
silver bill reported from the cotn-
tnitteo on finance , nnd following that will
coma the administrative customs bill. Hut
none of those measures are to Interfere With
reports from the appropriations committee
or the Montana aloction case when the com
mittee on privileges and elections are ready
to take them up.
Blair is downed , but no Is not dead , and
has ralntroducod his educational bill with
some amendments whLth are intended to
avoid the objections offered on the republi
can side to the original measure. In fact ho
has triad to draw It so as to make it n politi
cal issue under the plank of the last repub
lican platform , which declares in favor ot
national aid for the purpose of education.
Under the now bill the money will bo ex
pended by the federal government and uot
by the statos.
Thnro will have to be Imitation savages In
the circuses thin summer , in the secretary of
the Interior bag decided that no moro In
dians shall bo allowed to leave the agencies
for this purpose because of the demoralizing
effects upon thorn. Representatives of the
various circus companies are here to protest
against this order , and they have appealed
to the president who , however , sustains
Secretary Noble. They explained to the
president that they had already alvertuud
thuli attractions for the coming year ,
and had irene to croat oxpansa In
printing show bill ) nna circulars In
which they offer a * an attraction
to the public scenes In savage life and that
they will bo nut to great loss unless they uro
allowed to carry out their plans. The presi
dent lUtoned to. thorn patiently , but would
not yield nnd they will nave to tlnd the boat

who are now with liuiTalo bill In Europe re

The hero was "Uilly" Hooker of the Mil
waukco Sentinel. The lady in the case was
Miss Tarucll , stepdaughter of II. J. S.
Saul , publisher of the Ashland Dally
News. Hooker was managing editor of
the News for two years nt ono time , and
worked hand in glove with Saul until the
latter began to suspect that tils employe wns
falling in love with his uauK'htor. Im
mediately nftor Saul made this interesting
discovery ho called Hooker aside and in a
lathorly way urFod ) him not to press his
suit "Go west , to California or nomo-
whore , and I'll Rlvo you a couple
hundred dollars , besides paying nil your ex
pensed , " hu said , llooiter then and thcro
expressed himself In terms that had the nec
essary force , to the effect that if the old man
over repeated his uroposltion a war would
follow. Saul took advantage of his position
ai employer to leave the young mun without
u situation.
Hooker wcut to Milwaukee and for three
months ho wrote letters back hero to Miss
Turboll nnd she answered them. The intervals
between letters uruw longer and finally cor-
responuonco onuuu entirely. M no
told her father iho engagement had been
broken off , but it wusn t. Opposlllon only

Hooker came to Ashland this morning nnd
went to the Congregational church. His
