Preparations are being made here for tha
formation of a considerable party of Des
Moines people to go to Qulncy, Mass.', some
time next month to attend the launching
of the protected cruiser Des Moines, now
under construction In a shipyard there.
The work on the cruiser Is reported to be
well along to the point of completion. The
date for the launching was fixed for laat

pointed a young woman of this city to do
the" ehlstenlng act with the bottle, but
there was delay in the construction and
then the time fixed was come time in Jan
uary. But the launching hao not yet been
accomplished. The original delay waa over
the procuring of a special brand of bolts
or rivets, many thousand of which were to
be used in putting on the light sheathing.
What has caused other delays Is not known
here, but the builders of the boat have sent
word that they are nearly ready for-the
launching. It Is expected that Governor
Cummlna and his staff will go, also Mayor
Brenton of Des Moines and a party of city
officials, and there will be a delegation of
the Iowa contingent in Washington to go
to Qulncy on that occasion. Those who
have Investigated the matter say that the
cruiser Is being finished In the finest pos.
slble manner and Des Molnea will be an
addition to the navy. of which the city and
the naval authortles may well be proud.
It Is to cost a little over $1,000,000. After
the launching It will be aeveral months be
fore It la ready for commission.

Iowa Swamp Land Indemnity.
Attorney Evana of thla city, formerly in
the United States landofflce, la In Washing
ton to urge upon congress the passage of
bill Introduced In the house by Lacey into
the senate by Dolliver, providing for a
settlement of the Indemnity claima of cer
tain countlea in Iowa and other states on
account of alleged awamp landa erroneously
disposed of by the government. All this
swamp land was given to Iowa and by
Iowa to the countlea and aold. A number
of Iowa countlea claimed indemnity because
much land that waa In fact awamp land waa
not so surveyed or reported and these
counties a half century ago got nearly
$500,000 from the United Statea on this
claim. - Now a almllar claim Is made on
behalf of many countlea in northern Iowa,
aggregating nearly as much and last winter
the Iowa legislature passed a. concurrent
resolution requesting the Iowa delegation
to favor the bill mentioned. The countlea
have no direct Interest in the claim now, aa
it is entirely in the bands of speculators.
Iowa and McKlnley Memorial.
Governor A. B. Cummins haa undertaken
to raise soma additional money from Iowa

time the national association for that pur
pose waa organized Governor Shaw ap
pointed a committee to look after the mat
ter1 for Iowa but a number of persons set
out to raise funds for the proposed memo
rial arch In Washington. There waa con
filet between the two and aa a result but
very little was accomplished. ' Before the
close of Governor Ehaw'a term the matter
waa entirely dropped. Governor Cummlna
Is now taking it up and appealing to per
eona! friends all over the atate by letter to
form commltteea and solicit funds to be
adlsd to the Iowa contribution. About
$1,800 waa collected In varloua waya from
the atate and forwarded to Cleveland,
mostly through the postmsstera of tha
atate. It la hoped that about $10,000 will
be secured from Iowa. Ths Washington

STOCK MARKET IS PUZZLING
Perplexing and UocerUin, Owing to Com-blnation-of
LARGE CAPITALISTS ARE OPTIMISTIC
Exert Powerful Influence for Frosno
tlon of Higher Prices that t'aanot
Be Ignored So Derided
NEW YORK, May 26. (Special. )-The
banking house of Henry Clewa A Co. says:
Long distance views of the stock market
Just now are exceedingly perplexing and
uncertain, owing to the unusual combina
tion of Loiifllctuig circumstances. Amongst
the large capljfiilsts there is a distinctly
optimistic tone, and. as they exert a re
markably powerful control over prices nnj
are vitally Interested In promoting a iiiKhur
market, this Influence cannot be ignored,
although crop uncertainties and suspicions
that Insiders are anxious to lighten thflr
loads effectually discourage tho develop
merit of a large outside support. Between
those various Influences there Is no oc
casion at the moment to look for any de
cided movements In either direction. There
Is little or nothing In the situation to war
rant expentations of any Important reac
tion; nor la there basis yet for any genuine
upward movement, except through artifi
cial means or some radical change not yet
anticipated. On the other hand, there are
enough interests at work to warrant con
siderable trading, and the opportunities
for profit In stocks bought and sold with
discretion are likely to be numerous.
Every week brings out new railroad deala
of consequence, all a part of the great con
centration movement which we have re
peatedly alluded to as being one of tha
most Important underlying features of
strength In the stock market. The appar
ently unreasonably high prices at which
some railroad securities are selling are en
tirely due to these movements; good earn
ings and increased dividends having been
long over-discounted. Insiders are, of
course, fully aware of'these possibilities;
their stocks are withdrawn or held far
above present market value, and the scant
floating supply leaves prices at the mercy
of a new class of speculators, the bold
operators who make a dash for thla stock
aad then for another, compelling timid
owners to buy at extravagant prices

to say, movements of this sort are ex
ceedingly unsettling, and trading In such
stocks on margin Is highly dangerous In
spite of the excellent character of the se
curity. Chicago A Northwestern in a strik

peace In the stock market: and It seems
Improbable that the various svstems can
be unified without Inviting more or less
friction in the final divisions of territory.
Mr. Gould's intention of connecting his
southwestern roads wth the Atlantic sea
board, which will soon be an accomplished
fact In spite of the opposition of Pennsyl
vania, Is a speck on the horizon that will
bear watching. Mr. Qould does not seem
to be Included In the community-of-lnterest
plans, and with his power over-rates In the
far west, as well as southwest, his opera
tions and extensions have a special Inter
est. So, while the movement toward con
centration means ultimate stability to rail
road investments, the progress of such
plans Is not likely to be alwavs smooth;
and there need be no surprise If occasional
disturbances occur In the local struggles
for supremacy. Railroad destinies, it should
be remembered, are now in the hands of
giants, who are alive to the consequences
of disagreement, and fortunately they are
largely dominated by a resolute master
hand whose constant policy Is harmony.

"Dear Mrs. Pinkham : For several years after my last child
was born I felt a peculiar weakness, such as I never had experienced
before, with severe pains in the ovaries and frequent headaches.
" I tried the doctor's medicines and found it money worse than
wasted. A friend who had been tured through the use of X.ydla E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound advised 'me to try it. I did
so, also your Sanative Wash, and I must say I never experienced
such relief before. Within six weeks I was like another woman. I
felt young and strong and happy once more.

In spite of the lack of definite news, of
ficial or otherwise, from Pretoria, the mar
ket assumed strength on the general in
dications that peace waa assured. The
buoyant tone In nearly all the departments
has been Increasing steadily throughout
the last week, when the official announce
ment of peace comes the boom will prob
ably already be In full swing and every
reasonable advance will be fully discounted.
In the meanwhile the money market re
mains tight. As for weeks past the mar
ket Is stilt Indebted to the bank by over
2,000,000. while the slow government dis
bursements render the repayment of this
Indebtedness difficult. While the announce

Is likely that the Industrial requirements
of the reconstruction period In Bouth Africa
will absorb quite aa much cash as the
mines produce In gold for the remainder
of the preaerit year, there Is consequently
little prospect for easier money unless
gold comes from the continent. It Is as
sumed that New York la more likely to
demand gold than to send It here. Buy
ing, which has been restricted to gilt
edged stocks. Is now extending to the more
speculative Issues. Home ralla have mado
but slight advances, however, as It Is
known that many new Issues of capital
are pending, and this renders buyers chary.
It is also known that about 2,000 loans and
companies are only waiting a favorable
moment to enter Into competition with
the savings of the public. The "future
course of the American section of the
market Is a matter of some doubt, though
this section will probably follow the up
ward tide. Americans have certainly been
stronger during the last week on the
strength of easier money In Wall street
and the encouraging crop report. The
outlook for Northern Pacifies is much bet
ter than It was. but the extension of the
coal strike In the United Btatea Is worry
ing a good many operators. Canadian
Pacifies were strong last week and touched
139 on further New York purchases. Chile
and Argentine bonds strensthened rapidly
throughout the week, and will probably
rise sharply because of the publication
last night of the terms of the protocol be
tween the two countries.
While mining shares had a cheerful tone,
the public is still holding off, and the ad
vances so far consist principally of mark
ing up prices by the holders.
