(From a Staff Correspondent)
DES MOINES. June 13. (Special.) As
the reports from county auditors are re
ceived by the state auditor In which they
give the abstract of county assessments as
equalised by the county boards, they are
being carefully tabulated that the council
may have Information In hand for the state
equalising, which commences next month.
The reports from about forty of ths coun
ties have been received already. Thee are
generally the smaller counties Where the
work can be done soonest. They show that
the real estate valuations as msde by the
assessors this year aversge about 3S.80 an
acre Increase over the valuation of two
years ago, when the last real estate as
sessment was made. At this rate the In
crease In valuation on real estate, exclusive
of town lots, would be In the state over
$236,000,000. But as the larger oountles
come In this average will be materially In
creased, as many of the counties yet to re
port show an average Increase of over 110
an acre on the land assessment. Some of
the largest Increases of this year are In
these counties: Pocahontas, 111.60; Benton,
$10.33; Butler, $10.05; Greene, $10.27; Winne
bago, $9.90. Allamakee shows an Increase
of only $1.12 an acre. The average valua
tion placed on acreage In Iowa two years
ago was a little over $35, but this year It
will go to about $41 or $42 an acre.
Hanged Herself In Penitentiary.
Governor Cummins today received word
from Anamosa that Christina Behrens of
Scott county had killed herself In the state
penitentiary. She was given clothing for
her own use and some cloth out of which
to make something, and she fashioned a
rope with which she succeeded tn hanging
herself. Mrs. Behrens was received at the
penitentiary In 1S97 on a life sentence from
Scott county for killing her husband. She
tried In vain to get the legislature to con
sider an application for pardon and since
that was refused she has been despondent.
She was 47 years old at the time of her
commitment. She was the only life con

A significant county convention was held
today In Lyon county, the former home of
Judge A. Van Wagenen of Sioux City, who
aspires to the democratic nomination for
governor of Iowa. An effort had been
made to induce James M. Parsons of Rock
Rapids to come out as a candidate for gov
ernor In opposition to Van Wagenen, but
today Parsons introduced In the county
convention at Rock Rapids a platform
which was adopted which endorses Judge
Vaa Wsgenen's government ownership of
railroads plank and was, In fact, an ap
proval of the judge's candidacy. This Is
regsrded as making It pretty certstn that
Van Wagenen will be the stardard-besrer,
as no other candidate Is yet announced
for the place.
