(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, July 7. (Special. )-W. E.
Skinner of the Union stock yards of Chi
cago, and connected with the National
reciprocity conference which is to be held
In Chicago August 15 and 1ft, is In the city
today and made a personal call on Gov
ernor Cummins to Invite him to be present
at the conference and deliver an address.
The Corn Belt Meat Producers' association
of this state Joins with fourteen other or
ganisations In the call for. the convention.
Governor Cummins assured Mr. Skinner
that he would be present and participate.
At his hotel this evening Mr. Skinner
said: "If I should talk all night I could
not tell more of the purpose of the con
ference than Is contained In the call. This
s a decidedly Important affair. W aro
today face to face with a new and prohibi
tive German tariff designed to keep out
every pound of American breadstuff and
meat products. Retaliation has been tried
at tremendous cost td our producers and
manufacturers and Is a failure. In calling
this conference we stand on the broad plat
form enunciated by President McKinley In
his lust speech at Buffalo. We care not
whether the future of our trade be safe
guarded by means, of direct reciprocity
treaties or under the provisions of a fairly
drawn maximum and minimum tariff law
under which the government could directly
negotiate advantageous International agree
ments, but th situation demands at once
that In some form ther be established th
principle of conceding something to such
nations aa will concede valuable trade re
lations with ua."
Carroll Shows a Growth.
But for the Increase In the population of
the city of Carroll the county of that name
would show a loss this year. The official
figures given out by the census depart
ment today show that Carroll county gained
zis in population In five years. The city of
Carroll gained Ml. showing that the county
wun tne exception of Carroll lost In popu
lation. The population of Carroll county is
now 20.636 and the population of Carroll city
s.ns. This makes seven counties out of
thirty-two that show a gain in population.
More Cattle at State Fair.
The cattle exhibit at the State fair this
this year, according to all Indications, will
be larger than last year, and last year's
exhibit set the record. It la a serious propo
sition with the dlreotors to find space for
the exhibits. The National Association of
Polled Durham today notified Becretary
Simpson that It had appropriated enough
toward the premiums to make them as
large In that class as for the Jerseys and
Holstelns. This Is th first year premiums
have been offered for Polled Durham.
Jesse Crawford Paroled.
Governor Cummins has Issued a parole
for Jesse Crawford, who with Orlando P.
Wllkins held up th Dallas County Savings
bank ten years ago. Crawford was a boy
of It and Wllkins was a relative and an
escaped convict from th penitentiary at
Stillwater, Minn. Crawford was captured

Th round robin that was passed1 around
at th encampment of th Fifty-third and
Fifty-fifth regiments last year to secure

that the adjutant general's office has not

lain Banking house ot this city. Is going to
be given a new trial on tho charge of em

court here last week found him guilty.
This afternoon and evening was devoted
to the argument of -a motion for a new
trial and the examination of Jurors, the
case coming before Judge Paul Jessen of
Nebraska City, who sat last week. The
defense alleged misconduct on the part of
certain Jurors, errors In the Instructions to
the Jury and the failure of evidence to
show that Chamberlain misapplied the

by County Attorney J. C. Moore and O. A.

wrote on the back of It. "Bury this with
me," and then took the doze of morphine.
He lived about four miles from Osceola.
