The nnnual mcctlnB of the Humane so
clety was held yesterday afternoon In tin
the parlors of the Young Men's Chrlstlni
association. There was not ns largo an at
tendance as was anticipated , but those win
did attend took an enthusiastic Interest litho
the work. The venerable D. C. llloomcr
who has been president of the organlrntlot
for several years , was called to the chair
Kcv. Henry Cokcr was chosen secretary am
read the minutes of the last annual meet
Ing. At the conclusion of the reading thi
president made his annual report , which wai
as follows :
I would respectfully report that whlli
llttlo actual work lias been done by tin
olllci-rs of the Humana oclety during tin
last llftcen months , yet that the purposes
which It was orsanlzcTl to promote liavi
ant been entirely overlooked. The press
of the city hns frequently mentioned the
subject , and set forth In strong , stirring
language the cruelties practlecd bj
thoughtless persons upon the animals In
their charge , as well as upon the children
under their care. The members of the po.
llco force , who wcro made olllcers of the
society at the last annual meeting , have
also done much good work in these direc
tions , and , while not many actual arrcstf
have been made for Inhuman treatment ,
yet they have from timeto time , by timely
suggestion and discreet atlvlcu to individu
als , helped to stay the cruelties too often
coming under their notice. I think there
In a general fee-ling In our community In
favor of helping on our work , anil It need.
only a little earnest organization to mnkc
thin more effective. To this end we need
more money , that we may both purchase
humane literature for general circulation
nnd employ agents to effectively carry out
the Immune objects of our society. 1 ear
nestly hope that Home efforts to secure
these desirable ends may bo adopted nt this
I think this meeting may be regarded
na the annual meeting of the society , and
It will , therefore , be right to elect olllcera
for the ensuing year , ns required by ar
ticles v nnd vl of the constitution. I would
add that the payment annually of $2 In
required for membership lu the society , and
I would suggest that this bo reduced to
Jl and that the trvaqurer to bo selected at
this meeting be instructed to extend the
membership ns fnr ns possible and thus en
able us to prosecute the work of the so
ciety with more vigor anil success.
The report wao received and Its recom
mendations as to the reduction of the mem
bership fcea were concurred In. The work ol
electing efllccrs wati then taken up. Mr ,
Hloomer was re-elected president. Mayor
George Carson vlco president , A. Overtoil
treasurer nnd Henry Coker secretary. The
directors ! elected wcro : Colonel W. F. Uaker ,
Henry Paul , Henry DoLong , II. W. Tllton
and Chief of Police ICcl Canning.
The treasurer's ; annual report t'howecl th'it
there wcro no unpaid bills nnd there was
still a balance of ? S In the treasury.
Discussions * na to tlio best methodo of se
curing the objects of the society led to the
pasKigo of a resolution requci'tlng all mem
bers of the police force to take an active In
terest In the association's work.
The treasurer and secretary were Instructed
to extend the membership of the society nnd
promote Its objects by circulating among the
people suitable literature. Other practical
ways were discussed for extending the In
fluence of the society.
The subscription to a number of periodicals
suitable for the work wao ordered to ho re
newed. _
Time ( o Clean Up.
It Is getting about time there should be
a general cleaning up. This nice weather
gives a person tlmo. to think how much nicer
the city would look if the streets were
cleaned up and put In shape before winter
sets In. The merchants also realize that It
Is time to clean up a llttlo and get rid ol
odds nnd ends. Hughes , the Men's outfitter ,
at 415 llroadway , has caught the fever and
has commenced cleaning up. He Is making
a great cut on remnants In Shoes , Under
wear , Caps , Gloves , etc. , before the holiday
trade fairly sets in and will devote thlo
week to cleaning up. Better drop around.
You may find Just what you are looking for
and get a bargain. _ _

MISSOURI VALLiiYo la. , Dec. It. ( Spe
clal Telegram. ) The Freeman suicide an
attempted murder last night has been th
topic of conversation In this city today , am
many nnd varied are the surmised cause
for the tragedy. Dr. Freeman's testlmon
before the coroner's Jury relative to the re
latlona existing between himself and th
boy Is in part as follows : "The boy arrlve
In the Valley Sunday from California am
went out to his uncle's , east of town. II
came In on Tuesday , and had a long con
versatlon with mo in regard to his staying
with me , as I Intended that ho should llv
with me , ns ho Is the only child I have. Ho
was perfectly friendly and not n cross won
passed between us. After our talk ho wen
back to his unclo'a , and remained there unti
yesterday afternoon , when ho again cam
Into my ofllco and wo had a long talk eve
his prospects here and 'the ' prospects of getting
ting employment. Ho went away from the
ofllco feeling In the best of spirits. The
boy must have been Insane , for there Is no
reason In the world why ho should have at
tempted to murder me. Wo had never hoi
a cross word or any disagreement of an ;
kind nnd the only reason I can see why ho
did so was that he was crazy , "
Upon the body of the dead boy were
found two letters one from the father here
and the other .from the mother at Plcas-
anton , O. The general tenor of the father's
letter bears out his testimony as to klm
relations to the son , beginning : "Dear Hey
Denny I write you today , according to
promise , but have but llttlo to nay. I only
want to ask you If you want to come to
Iowa ? It .would please me very much to
have you here. I think you could get work
of some kind near here , then you would not
bo among strangers , and 1 do want to see
you. "
This letter Is dated November 25 , 1890 ,
and continues In the same strain to the end.
Three days before this , the ever trtio and
affectionate mother had written from Plcas-
anton : "Denny , my Dear Doy How I would
love to know what you are dolngl Do you go
to Pabbath school and to church ? I have
thought of you to much since you have been
gone , and spent many sleepless nights , won
dering where you were.
"I wrote two letters to you when I heard
you were In California , but do not know as
you got them. I do not know what you arc
doing or how you arc getting along , but
whatever happens always try to keep up a
bravo heart. Trouble will como In thlo
world. None can escape It : it Is sure to come ,
to all some time. To so mo it comga In one
way and to others It comes some other. ]
havd looked for a letter from you over since
I heard you were. , In California , but have
been disappointed. I would bo very thankfu
to have you wilto'n few lines to me when
you get this. It lids been A long time rinco
I had a letter from . Iny boy. Good-bye
Denny ; may our Heavenly Father be with
you and mo until wo meet again. Your
mother. LOU FREEMAN. "
Thus the mystery of , the young man's at
tempt upon his father's life remains lockei
In doath'e embrace , unless the mother upon
her arrival can and will furnish
some other possible motive than in
sanity. There arc those who think
L'ho can , and anoth'cr chapter In the
most sensational tragedy ever enacted in
this 'city may como to light , The body
await : ) her arrival from1 Ohio.

The populists hero arc very much agi
tated over the decision to bo handed down
by the supreme court tomorrow on the
mandamus application to compel the state
canvassing board to Issue certificates of
election to the McKlnley electors nnd the
republican candidates for congress. Many
of the prominent populists say In private
conversation , although they refuse to be
Interviewed , to the effect that If the
decision of the supreme court Is adverse
to the populists an effort will bo made
at the coming session of the legislature to
Impeach the members of the court. In order
to do this they say that enough repub
lican members of the legislature will be
unseated to give the populists a. clear two-
thirds majority. It Is believed here that
this Is Idle- talk and that the populist lead
ers throughout the state would not coun
tenance the scheme for a moment.
