DE8 MOINES, July 31. (Special) An Im
portant Innovation haa Just been adopted
by the Board of Trustees of the Iowa
State college which will be followed by sim
ilar Innovations at all the state education
al Institutions, and this will go far towards
putting a stop to agitation In favor of
changing the system of control of the col
leges. The trustees appointed a purchasing
committee at the last meeting at Ames and
gave this committee authority to make all
purchases of materials of every kind used
by the college and authority over all ex
penditure except a regards buildings
and tho salaries, with Instruction that all
purchase ar to be made on competitive
bids presented to the committee at atated
Intervals. Heretofore it has been tho cus
tom for the board to buy materials at all
sorts of place and at any old price, and
this 'waa frequently at tha whim of aoroo
member or to favor aome friend of mem
bers of the board. This rule haa been fol
lowed at all the educational Institutions,
as It had frequently been followed at all
state institution. It was the system which
brought about the scandals which resulted
in abolishing the old boards. Two years
ago the educational Institutions were se
verely censured bythe state board of con
trol for the failure to adopt lorae system
for the purchase of supplies In accordance
with modern methods, and this criticism
caused an indignant retort from some of
the college men. Now they have adopted
the competitive system In vogue with the
board of control. It la believed thla will
go far toward preventing the advocates
of one board for all the educational in
stitutions from gaining their point at the
next session of the legislature.

Secretary Simpson of the Iowa State
fair today announced that while the entrlea
for horsca and cattle for the next fair
do not close until tomorrow the entrlea In
the cattle department are already more
than ever before at any fair. Tha cattle
show will therefore be the finest ever
known. Another advantage which he haa
pointed out Is that there is more even dis
tribution between the classes, and not any
predomination of one class pver another.
The Holstcina have especially come to the
front as a show breed and the Jerseys are
to be shown in larger number than ever be
fore. In the horse entries while the num
ber is not yet quite up to last year nearly
all the leading breeders of tha country
are represented. The hog and aheep en
trlea are very satisfactory.
Iowa, Frnlt Crop.
The Iowa fruit crop will be only fair
this year. That part which haa already

plied his report for August 1 on the con
dition of the fruit crop. The percentagea
of full crop shown by reports from, three-,
fourths of the state are as follows: -Grapes,

ORIGIN OF COPPER COMBINE
Tommy Lawson Tells How tho Trick
Was Turned and Where the
Public Came la.
The great Anaconda mine, and affiliated
properties, previous to the creation of the
Amalgamated, were owned by J. B. Hag
gin, Lloyd Tevls and Marcus Daly. The
control of the properties and their opera
tions were absolutely vested In Marcus
Daly, and he alone knew where the lean
veins ended and the fat ones began. Deep
down in his mind Marcu Daly cherished a
dream a dream of Immense riches, and It
waa to be realised In a simple enough way.
He should get together the millions to buy
out his partners on a basia of tha valuation
of the "ore in sight," then In ' aupreme
ownership himself, reap untold profits out
of tho milling of the plethoric veins he had
been ao careful to leave unworked.
Mr. Daly met Henry H. Rogers. The
miner confided his dreams and his aspira
tions to the magnate, who at once mag
nificently undertook to realize them. The
trade waa almost Instantly made. Mr.
Rogers would buy the properties of Daly,
Hoggin and Tevia at. "In eight" prices, and
Daly would be his partner, but the partner
ship must remain secret until the purchase
waa consummated. '
The ownership of the Anaconda company
at the time consisted of 1,200,000 shares, and
with the purchase of a few shares over the
majority of the "in eight" lean vein Valua
tion of $24,000,000, would carry the turnover
of the management and the control. It
took but a very brief time to get together
the other properties which were finally In
cluded In the first section of Amalgamated.
They consisted of the Colorado, Washoe
and Parrot Mining companies, and timber,
coal and other lands, and mercantile and
like properties situated In the state of
Montana, for which Mr. Rogers paid In
round figures $15,000,000. a total of $39,000,000,
for what within a few daya after the pur
chase waa capitalized at $75,000,000 In the
Amalgamated company. T. W. Lawson In

DISPOSES OF CLAIMS FOR 360 CITIZENS
Acareaate Awards for Damages Sus
tained by Italian Cltlsen Dir.
laa; the. War Cat Dowa
WASHINGTON, July 31. Jackson H.
Ralston of this city ha Just signed his
final award as umpire of the lullan
Veneiuelan commission and this completes
the labors of all the recent Venezuelan
mixed commissions. About 300 claims, ag
gregating 16,000,000, were filed with the
Italian commission, there being many more
Italian claimants than for any other na
tionality and the aggregate awards were
Many questions of doubtful citizenship
came, before the commission and the um
pire held In all caRea of differences be
tween Venexuelan and Italian laws that
the law of domicile In the claimant after
the time of birth should control. The lar
gest claim presented was that of the Cer
vala heirs for .over 13,000,000. The original
claimant waa born In Sicily, but passed a
large part of his life In Venezuela, going
abroad at different periods in various ca
pacities for that country. The umpire
held that according to the law of his na
tive land he had forfeited hia original
citlicnshlp by his diplomatic! employment
and his helra therefore could not be heard
before the Italian commission.
Another case of importance was that of
the Martini company, which held a con
cession for coal mines and the railroad
from Guanta to Barcelona. The company
claimed $1,800,000 because of interference
wltn business by the paper blockade and
the seizure of the harbor of Guanta, etc.
Among; the Large Claims.
The umpire held that under the terms
of the concession the port should have re
mained and the paper blockade, or block
ade by proclamation only, waa Illegal and
that Venezuela was liable for damages
directly resultant therefrom granting the
A claim of $600,000 waa presented by the
Pogglolls, who bad been merchants In the
state of Los Andes. The Pogglolls claimed
they had been assaulted, that their assail
ants, by connivance of the authorities es
caped punishment, and that their extensive
properties had been destroyed through the
joint action of the authorities and private
Individuals, none of the parties engaged in
such destruction being punished and per
sonal protection being practically refused.
The umpire held that under the circum
stances of the case, Venezuela was legally
liable for the wrongdoing- of her officials
and granted an award of $107,000.
Several cases of expulsion from Vene
cuela came before the commission. The
umpire recognized the governmental right
of expulsion, but found In particular in
stances that It had exercised in disregard
of the law and granted damages. For the
unlawful killing of two Italians by or in
the presence and with the sanction of gov
ernment officials, awards of $8,000 and $10.
00 were given.
Responsibility of Venesnela.
The question most debated before the
commission waa as to the responsibility of
Venezuela tor the acts of unsuccessful rev
olutionists. The umpire, following many
precedents, held In a number of cases that
such responsibility did not exist.
In several cases of contract where the
