"Wednesday afternoon Sheriff Olllan and
myself made an automobile trip throuch

to us In substance the same story, al

he had a cold. We also found the

D. Daly, representing Architect licen

with him the complete working plans and
specifications of the new court house,
which he placed before the Hoard of
County Supervisors In session this week.
The board spent the afternoon Inspecting
the plans and shortly before adjournment
officially approved of them. Chairman
Morris stated that the board would ad
vertise at once for bids on the contract.
This means that the building will probably
be commenced sometime In April, as was
originally Intended. A special feature of
tho new court house will be an Illuminated
clock dial at the top of the east frontage.
A bell that can be heard all over the
city will strike the hours. The mechanism
of the clock, as well as the other time
pieces throughout the building, will be
manipulated from the supervisors' quarters.

Last Twi Weeks.
(From a Staff Correspondent)
Dea Moines. March M -(Special.)- Un
less there Is a decided change In the sena
torial situation within another week It Is
probable that there will be general agree
ment to make no efforts at election until
the last week of the session. There does
not seem to be any probability of a caucus
or conference to get the men together. The
general opinion la that the matter will drift
along until the last few days when, after
most of the big bills have been disposed of,
there will be a supreme effort at an elec
tion, and In the riot that Is sure to ensue
something will be done to end the deadlock.
There has been no gain or loss for either
of the republican candidates the last two
weeks. A few of those who some time ago
went over to Kenyon have drifted away
from him and It Is certain that a number
of the others are ready to do so without
warning. But on both sides the men who
are most concerned are very firm In their
Judge Kenyon was here twice the last
week and held Important conferences with
leaders of the party. He called In men
who are usually Influential and who know
what can be done and went over the situa
tion frankly with them. He found that
most of the veteran leaders of the party
were simply doing all they could, within
reason and fairly, to bring about an elec
tion. He found that Senator Cummins had
done what he could to secure an election
and had been Influential In prevailing upon
many of the leading members of the legis
lature to give the Fort Dodge man their
loyal support. But It was also found that
no matter what efforts were put forth no
republican can now get a majority of all
Judge Deemer has continued In his atti
tude of acquiescence In the situation with
out undertaking personally to force him
self upon the legislature. It is well under
stood that his following would remain solid
even if he should withdraw and that noth
ing he can do will effect a result. There
has been some Ill-natured criticism of
Judge Deemer on the theory that be Is now
standing In the way of success, but the
members all know that this Is not the case
and that neither of the candidates need be
driven out of the game by any unfairness.
The complaint made a week ago that tbe
senatorial contest is causing delay in the
legislative work has had little force. As
a matter of fact the delay has been very
slight The strained situation has pre
vented the formation of cliques and com
bines In legislative work.
Senator Cummins and Senator Young will
return to Washington next week to attend
the special session of congress.
Distribution of Psurtrtdares.
The state game warden, George A. Lin.
coin, Is still engaged in making distribu
tion of partridges to Iowa people who
are willing to care for them and protect
tbem while they are breeding. He has
distributed several- thousand pairs, paid
for out of the gun license fund of the
state, and It is expected that as a result
there will be a great increase in the
amount of game in the state In a few
years. All efforts at securing a part of
this fund for some other purpose have
been unavailing and It will soon be a
serious question how they are going to keep
the fund from growing larger.
Home for Blind Women.
A home for sightless women is pro
vided for In a bill introduced in the house
by Representative By bee of Marlon county.
The bill carries an appropriation of 15,700
for the establishment of such an Institu
tion. Years ago the building now occu
pied by the Knoxvllle inebriate asylum was
purchased by citizens of Knoxvllle to be
devoted to a home for the blind. The
state later changed the character of the
institution. The Knoxvllle people now ask
that the tS.TOO spent on the building be
appropriated for a new home for blind
