The Novoe Vremya, the only unofficial
paper to appear today, declares the na
tion "seems determined to commit Hara
Kirl' and revlewa the bestiality of the
mutineers at Cronstadt In their attacks
upon, the officers as showing 'what the
country may expect If the mob gets the
upper hand. The paper says the mutineers
tied a rope with a stone at one end around
the neck of one of the officers and threw
him Into the fake, where he was drowned;
beat In the face of another officer with
the butt of a rifle and broke the lega of
a poor mad woman after bayonetttng her.
Servants Sarreader OOeere.
I( turns out that the servants of Colonel
Alexandroft and Captain Vrlchinsky de
livered thern up to the mutineers, and
these servants were among the murderers
who tyere tried by drumhead court-martial;
and.. .shot. When they were offered the
services of a priest six of the men sen
tenced to death refused to accept the sac
rament and only expressed repentance.
After such evidence of the mob's spirit
the Novoe Vremya appeals to all who de
sire Jo, prevent a, repetition of, the horrors
and terrors ot .the revolution" ta France to
discontinue their attitude of Indifference
and rally to the side ot law and order.

leaders say that the major portion ot
what they had has been "confiscated."

which the question whether the troops will

The officers expressed grave doubt as to
whether the soldiers, especially those of
the guard regiments, would obey without
provocation. The revolutionists add thgt
It was arranged that government spies
shall give the necessary provocation by

Wade Ont of the Race.
Judge M. J. Wade, late congressman from
the: Second congressional district. In an
Interview In Iowa City today stated that
under no conditions would he accept the
nomination for governor on the democratic
ticket at the convention In Waterloo next
Tuesday This Is taken ss eliminating
Judge Wade from an oslb!llty as a candi
date for that offte. During the last few
days there has been a revival of discussion
of Claude Porter of Centervllle as a guber
natorial possibility, on that ticket. It Is
understood that he' Is :the choice of Hon.
Jerry B. Sullivan, the last candidate on
the democratic ticket for governor. John
D. Dennlson, Jr.,' of Dubttqtie. Mayor Ball
of ' Iowa City and Claude R, Porter of
Centervllle are thus left as practically the
only candldatea In the field for the posi
tion. Below that of governor the other
positions to be named on the ticket have
been little discussed, either In the papers
or by the politicians,
t'nlted States Senator Deleantea,
Governor Cummins has named the fol
lowing as the delegates from Iowa to at
tend the convention of delegates from all
the states to further the movement to
amend the constitution of the I'nlted
States so ss to provide. for a vote direct
on Vnlted States senators: Ex-Governor
William Larrabee, of Clermont; Thomas D.
Healy, of Fort Dodge; Senator Lester W.
Lewis, of Clarlnda; Jerry B. Sullivan, of
Des Moines; WaRer H. Dewey, of Charl
ton. The lsst two are democrats and
it Is understood are favorable to the prop
osition though the resolution passed by
the legislature last winter does not pro
vide that democrats " must be : repre
sented on tha delegation. The first three
named are republicans. The convention
has been called td meet In this city Sep
tember 6 In the hall of the house of rep
resentatives. Senator Lewis of Clarlnda
was the originator of the resolution which
he offered In the senate and .labored dil
igently to get passed.
Superintendent Henry R. Rothert has
been reappointed by the State Board Of
Control for another term of four years as
superintendent of the school for the deaf
at Council Bluffs. He has held the position
tor many years.
Too Many Plata.
Tnere are spplicatlons thus far for L366
pens for the exhibition of swine in that
department st the state fair this year and
there are Just 1,292 pens available and no
additional ground on which others can be
built. This condition of affairs Is causing
some Inconvenience to the swine breeders
of the west. Arrangements are. being made
for additional ground, but It will not be
available for, this year's fair.
The horse and cattle . entries closed this
week and the Indications are that the barns
will be more than 'filled, but. this can be
taken care ot by erecting tents, which
will be done.
Assessment la Concluded.
The executive council has concluded the
work of making the railroad assessment
and the clerks of tha executive council's
