for a secret conference of the heads of the
several city departments-one night laat

quite a revenue. According to one of the
aldermen who was present at the confer

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE3 MOINES. Oct. IS. (Special.) The
fraternal orders ot Iowa and grand lodgea

to the plan for a building for the fraterni
ties at the Louisiana Purchase expoaltloa.
Tbe Masons, the Workmen, the Eastern
Star and others have formally endorsed the
plsn and have appointed committees to so
licit contributions for the erection ot the
buildings. In the grand lodge meeting of
tbe Odd Fellows the past week a resolution
was passed approving of the plan and
pledging the support of the Odd Fellows,
and expressing pleasure that Ida Von Hon,
president of the Rebekahs, bad beea se
lected as the Iowa member of the commit
tee to look after thla matter. It la be
lieved that practically all the orders In
Iowa will take a hand la helping build the
fraternal building at St. Louis. At the
grand lodge meeting Just closed at Clinton
k report was read showing that the Odd Fel
lows' Orphans' home, which Is being erected
by tbe Iowa grand lodge, ia now nearly
completed. Committees are In charge to
see that this Institution Is opened as soon

gestion of Secretary Shaw of the Treasury
department, and carried credentials from
the State department. He appeared before
the commercial and official bodies In the
larger cities and before the legislative
bodtea and presented the exposition advant
ages to them. His mission waa entirely
successful and be has succeeded in Inter
esting tbe people of the Scandinavian eoun
tries ia the exposition In a way that as
sures large exhibits from that part of the
world at St. Louis.
Redaeed the Fares.
A peculiar Incident Is reported from
Boone county In the matter of rates of fare
on tbe main line of tbe Northwestern rail
road. When the Boone viaduct was built
and tbe road straightened so that the Moln-
gona curve could be avoided three miles
waa cut off ths Una. The tariff sheets had
to be revised to account for thla shorten
ing of the track, but the local passenger
fare between Boone and Ogden and some
other local farea was not changed. Last
week the attention of tbe grand Jury waa
called to the fact that tbe company waa
charging t cents mora for tickets between
Boone and Ogden than tbe law allowa aad
Judge Whlttaker notified tbe railroad man
agers." Tney . Immediately: changed., the
rates. Tne matter bad beea entirely over
looked by them and they bad been uninten
tionally violating tbe law in charging more
than S cents a mile for more than a year.
State Herds Afflicted.
The herd of hogs at the Soldiers' home
at Marshalltown belonging to the state Is
dying off at as alarming rate, about thirty
having died already, aad all efforts to
atop tbe loss have proved unavailing. Chair
man Cownle of the state board declares
IK... la V... V. . V. aaklmala
have pleuro-pneumonla. The fact of the I
breaking out of tbe epidemic there la all
the mora distressing because of tbe fact
that but little ot It haa been known In
central Iowa for several years.
No report baa aa yet beea received by
the State Board of Health oa the reported
trichina at Centervllle, where It waa re
ported that a herd of about thirty-five
hogs waa affected with the parasites. There
is, however, no doubt of the existence of
the trouble there, Tbe meat sold ia tbe city
is being carefully inspected and none la
sold that la not declared to be tree from
the trouble.
Rate Book oa lasaraaee.
A new rate book for the Insurance com
bine is being distributed in Iowa from the
office of Manager Bennett of Cedar Rap
Ida, who haa full control of all tbe rate
making for tbe board companiea la the
state. In most of ths cltlea of the atate
tbe Increase in ratea la from 20 to 15 per
cent and aa a result there is mors or less
complaining over the existence of the com
bine and the delegation of tbe rata mak
Ing power to one man. Tbe new ratea
show Increases more generally In tbs fac
tory districts than otherwise, as dwellings
are not Increased.
Directory Estlaaatea oa Poaalatloa.
Tbe new city directory la now about

WASHINGTON, Oct. C.-tTbe census office
has issued a statement giving figures re
garding Illiteracy among children of Immi
grants and children of natlvee.
The statement says:
Confining the comparison to children be-
No excuse for tarnished

)wslere keep U
tween tbe ages of 10 and 14 years In the
I nlteel states, aa a wnoie Ml per cent or
the white children of native parents ana
HI per cent of the native white children
of foreign-born parenta are able to read
and write. . .
This surrrlslna difference In favor ot tne
children of the foreign-born population la
due largely to the fact that their children
live mainly In the northern ana wesiern
states, where the public school system nas
reached a higher degree of efficiency, while
rest numbers of native whites live in me
southern states where about 10 per cent are
Illiterate. ....
When the comparison In carried out by
geographic divisions the percentage of il
literates in the two classes in earn pan ii
the countrv, except tne south Atlantic
states, Is found to be much nearer the
ssme. Yet even then In every region, ex
cept the north Atlantic states, the literate
children of Immlgranta are comparalively
more numeroue than tnose or. native
whltea. . . ...
This Is partly explained tir tne immi
grants love of cities and towns, wnne me
native whites live more generally In the
rural districts. Thtis In the north Atlantic
division there are $.! native white chil
dren 10 to 14 years of age, of whom I per
cent live In cltlea having at least 2B,iO In
habitants. On the other nand. among tne
713,170 white children 10 te 14 years of age
born of foreign parents a. per cent live in
similar cities. There Is no reason, there
fore, to Infer from the census figures that
the children of Illiterate Immlgranta are
constituting a permanent Illiterate clasa In
the population.
It Will Oe nouoea, Bff.rrr, mm mr hm r-

SCHCTLER, Neb.. Oct. .6. (Special.)
Corn huaklng, extensively undertaken a
week or ten days ago, has been discontinued
by many because of the immature or soft
condition of the corn. Some bsve been
obliged to re-handle corn that was cribbed
and which was molding or rotting, al
though when husked It was carefully sorted.
Present Indications are that there will be
a material shrinkage from the summer and
early fall estimates of fifty to seventy bush
els per acre. Estimates now made are
about forty bushels per acre, and the qual
ity much below standard.
