The visiting clubs were assigned to the public gallery, Of on the northern side of the half, and their hearty cheers resounded through the house when any point was brought out especially pleating. The joy of the democrats at having a democratic governor was something great. It has been so long since such a thing happened that they have cause to rejoice. The inaugural ceremonies were carried out with a great deal of enthusiasm among the dttncocrats. Visitors had corno from all over the state and from other states, the most noteworthy being the St. Joe, Missouri, J* ff arson club, one hundred aud fifty strong, and the Cook county, Illinois, democrats, two hundred and fifty strong. The members of the two houses met In their respective chambers and soon went into joint convention for the inaugural ceremony. Tbe inaugural procession formed at the Savory horse and proceeded to the capitol building. The procession was led by a body of police, followed by a band, military and civil organizations and carriages rn which road officials and their escort. The hall of the house, where the ceremony took rd ace, wa! crowded. On the right eide of the chamber were members of the house, their wives and friends, while on tho left the senators and their wives sat, and in front were members of the Pioneer Law Makers' association.

The chairmen of the main com mittecs were: Ways and means, Parrott; judiciary, Woolson; appropriations, Gatch; suppression of intemperance, Mc Coy; agriculture, Vale; insurance, Price; labor, Harsh. The democrats get the chairmenship of six committees, and the republicans get thirty-one. A resolution was adopted thanking Lieutenant Governor Hull for his fairness and ability in presiding over the senate. Adjourned. TUR RKCEITION. The reception given by Governor Boies this evening was .argely attended. The evening was fine and all the visiting delegations, as well as Des Moines people, turned out in force to pay their respects to the new democratic governor. The affair passed off well. Senate, house, supreme judges and state officials and their wiveB were re ceived first, and then shortly after eight o'clock started a stream of visitors which continued over two hours. The decorations of the reception room were very fine. The toilets of the ladies were quite rich. Mrs Larrabee wore a dress of imperial purple, while Mrs. Boies wore a cream colored satin. The reception was the most successful one held here for several years.

An abscess from which he had baen suffering was lanced by physicians during the night and much relief was afforded him. At four o'clock this afternoon the doctors announced that the only chance Lincoln has for his life lies .in another operation. The operation, which will be cf a desperate character, will be performed in a short time. Minister Lincoln stated this afternoon that the doctors say his son surprised all around him by not only surviving the night, but by having sufficient strength this morning to permit a tapping operation being performed which greatly relieved the heart and lungs from effusion. It was pronounced that the operation, because of the patient's feeble condition, would be fatal, but it is not. This afternoon another operation was performed and a drain inserted in tbe affected part, and the matter is now flowing freely from it. Though still in great danger, the physicians and parents are not without hope of his recovery. DUKE OF SEVILLE PARDONED. Madrid, Feb. 27.—The duke of Seville has been pardoned by the queen. He was condemned to banishment in 1886 for speaking of her majesty in insulting language because she had refused him audience He was an adherent to ex-Queen Isabelle. DOM PEDRO INTERVIEWED^ New York, Feb. 27.—Dr. Morel, editor of the LaNacion of Buenos Ayres, has britten a letter to Dr. Mendonca, the Brazilian minister to Washington, giving parts of an interview with Dom Pedro. The ex-emperor said the republic had done him great injustice. He believed, though, they would be able to govern the country because the Brazilians were patriotic people. He would continue to serve them in Europe as he had done in Brazil. In case of future complications and call from the people to return to the throne he would respond. He would not. however, do anything to cause strife among the people._ Uavscw of Dlphtiirli. Wenona, 111., Feb. 27 —About ten days ago diphtheria appeared in five families here. The city authorities quarantined the infected houses, the public schools closed and all public gatherings were prohibited. As a result the disease has been confined to the families first afflicted, and no new cases have been reported among them for nearly a week. Five deaths have occurred, all children under ten years of age—Rev. Mr. Williams' eight-year-old daughter, Samuel Scott’s son, William Patterson’s daugh ter. and two of Howell’s children. Advortishit Ii EdmIisA Very noteworthy in matter and manner are the advertising pages of the weekly and monthly papers and maga- the proceedings of certain executive sessions but when asked to give their sources of information declined to do so upon the ground that it would be a gross betrayal of confidence. One of them stated that in all his experience he had never known of an instance where the proceeding! in the executive session had been divulged by the employes of the senate or where newspaper men asked an employe for such information. Under the new rule which went into effect to-day' when the senate went into executive session, the press lobby in which were the capital officer of the Associated Press and United Press, as well as all the correspondents' rooms on the gallery floor were cleared, and a strict watch kept over them until the senate doors were opened again. This dis arranged all press business on the senate side for some time. The doorkeepers were also required to move their chairs and their persons further away from the holy of holies. What the senate expects to accomplish by this change is not clear. Reporters generally are not dull of hearing. But it was never charged that they could hear through four feet of solid wall or two heavy doors. _ THK SENATE. He attributed the existence of the pre*-1 Skirts submerged in 1883 moved out. I tines.

Probably the most important changes affecting the United States will be an increase of from fifty to seventy-five cents a barrel on wheat flour, and the removal of duty on Indian corn imported into Canada from the United States. The duty on American manufactures and vegetables will be re-imposed, and increased on boots and shoes, pork, beef, and fresh meats. A! strong effort is being made to secure the abolition of the export duty on p\ne logs, shipped to the United States, but so far without any encouraging assurances from the government.

Washington, Feb. 27.—Resolutions were presented and referred to the committee on the world’s fair from the convention of granite dealers held at Boston, declaring it to be the sense of the convention that the city of New York affords advantages and facilities for the fair of 1892 possessed by no other in the union, and extending thanks of the convention to New England members who voted for locating it there. The senate then proceeded to the consideration of the bill to declare unlawful trusts and combinations in restraint of trade and production. Mr. Sherman, who reported the bill from the committee on finance, said he had been instructed by the committee to move to strike out the third section, which fixes the penalties for the offense of entering into trusts or combinations. Mr. George opposed the bill, both on the ground of its inefficiency and on the ground that congress had not the constitutional power to enact it. His argu ments were mainly of a legal and technical character, designed to prove it would be impossible ever to get conviction under the bill, and as to the civil Buits provided for it, he said few of such events would ever be instituted and not one would be successful. Mr. Reagan gave notice of an amendment which he intended to offer to the bill (being the bill offered by him December last.) The bill went over without action and after an executive session the senate adjourned._ THS HOUSE* Atman Silted by i Vote of 162 to Nothing. Washington, Feb 27.—The house con tested election case of. Atkinson vs. Pendleton was called up and the floor was awarded the contestee, Pendleton. A vote was then taken on the minority resolution declaring Pendleton entitled to the seat and it was defeated by a strict party vote. Tbe vote then recurred on the majority resolution seating Atkinson. The democrats refrained from voting, their object being to have the contestant seated by lee! than a quorum, so that the question of (he right of the speaker to count a quorum may be taken before the courts. The vote resulted, yeas 162, nays none, the speaker counting a quorum. O Ferrell, of Virginia, raised the point of no quorum, but the speaker ignored him and the newly elected member ap peared at the bar of the house and took the oath of office amid applause on the republican side. fir. McKinley, from the committee on rules, reported a resolution making a special order for March 4th and 5th for billa reported from the committee on public buildings and grounds; adopted.

A BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY. Senator Paddock to-day introduced a bill for tbe establishment of a bureau of animal industry, to prevent the importation of diseased cattle and provide for the suppression and exterpolation cf pleuro pneumonia and other contagious diseases among domestic animals. The bill is intended as a substitute for various measures on the same topic. TO PAY INDIAN DEPREDATION CLAIMS Senator Moody, of 8outh Dakota, today introduced a bill to appropriate (623,148 to enable the secretary of the treasury to pay claims investigated, approved and reported to congress by the secretary of the interior under the Indian depredation act of 1885. IRREGULAR COURT PRACTICES. The house committee on judiciary has become convinced that irregular practices prevail to a considerable extent in the circuit courts of the country, and particularly in the southern courts. Attorney General Miller addressed the committee on the subject, and as a result Oates was instructed this morning by the committee to report a resolution providing for an investigation of the charges. AN IOWA APPOINTMENT. Attorney General Miller bas appointed Dewitt C. Cram assistant United States attorney for the northern district of Iowa. EX-GOVERNOR WARMOUTH APPOINTED.

Wooster, who hts just returned from Middleborough and intermediate points, says the Cumberland is higher than it ever has been and the runawa waters have created great havoc. There have been landslides where great trees and immense bodies of earth tumbled away, and in ploces big tracts of country are submerged. At Dillon Switch, below Livingston, nothing but the top of the extensive saw mill there is to be seen above water, and at Livingston the Rock Castle has encroached upon the town disastrously. At Middleborough the electric light plant has been rendered useless. Th streets ars submerge* and the canal was out of sight. The floods have crippled the railways to a considerable extent. News from the mountatn section is that landslides and washouts are numerous. The mails of that region have been practically discontinued and the telegraph wires are down in many places. grave fears. The storm is reported to be central about Nashville, Tennessee, at this writ-eleven o’clock) causing grave apprehensions here, lf the precepation in the next twenty-four hours should be as great in the Ohio valley as it has been at Memphis and Nashville, from the storm approching from that direction, it will doubtless cause a great flood. AN UNUSUAL RAIN. Memphis, Feb. 27.-—An unusual rain fall over the entire water shed of Mississippi and Ohio rivers and their tributaries since Saturday last part ends evil to the low lands protected by tbe levees in the Yazo delta and basin. Major Sterling, engineer for the lower Mississippi levee district, anticipates that levees in Arkansas will give away and relieve the pressure the Mississippi side. The out look in the section through which the White and Arkansas rivers pass is not encouraging. Both streams are rising fast and people living along the banks have taken advantage of the notices by the signal service and moved their stock to places of safety. _ ON THE RAMPAGE. til TWI of tai summer Entirprlu’* Officer* Ulier Arrest New York, Fob, 27 —An board the steamer Enterprise which arrived here this morning are two of her officers who were brought home under arrest to be tried by court-martial They were Chief Engineer Entwists and Ensign Kline. The chief engineer is accused of ‘‘impudence’’ to the commander and the ensign is accused of sleeping at his pest. Her commander, McCalla, is a very strict disciplinarian, and it is said among tbe naval officials he is overbearing and tyrannical and on very slight provocation his anger is aroused However this may be, it is a fact that I much disorder and discontent has been manifested on the vessels last trip.

Incorporated in the answer to the resolution are reports by Colonel Whittemore, commanding the arsenal, who established the project and General Bennet who was of the opinion that the distance of Rock Island from the preeent sources of supply of forgings; from the proving ground at which the guns can be proved before issue and from the sea coast, where the guns must be mounted, rendered its location unfavorable to the establishment of a gun factory. Secretary Proctor says: "The latter was transmittal without approving or disapproving the plans submitted. In my view the arsenal at Watervliet should be first completed according to the original plan, and the appropriation made for mounting guns already authorised by the law there will be nettled for mounting these guns. It is quite probable it will be desirable to manufacture some of them at Rock Island and Watertown arsenals and it may be that provisions will be made for heavy guns so that some of these can be assembled at Bock Island. That is an excellent location witk good buildings and power, and I am in favor of establishing tome branch of manufacture there in connection with heavy ordnance and field material that will be required. But it is impossible now to deride what will be required aad what won can be done there to the best advantage, and I think it the part of wisdom and prudence to complete the work in hand and defer the beginning of manufacture at Rock Island unto we can judge better what will be required. They Were rn Drag on th* Market Until tho Bees Came Along. One spring day, about a mile outside of Decatur, Ala., a hive of bees belonging to CoL Clark went on a swarm, a matter which should happen to every well regulated hive about on6e in so often. Just at that time Uncle Reuben Slathers, an old colored man, was coming into town with his mule and a “jag” of wood. The road was pretty heavy and the mule very lazy, and to keep the flies off the beast Uncle Reuben had stuck several branches into the harness. Coming along toward the Clark place the old man was saying: “Now, yo’ good-fur-scat mewl, yo’ lift dem hoofs an’ walk along or you’ll h’ar from me! If yo’ hain't de laziest, doggonest onery beast in dis hull state den FII leave de clmrchl Why, sah, Fd sell yo’ fur two dollars an* one leetle ’possum f’ About this time toe bees got a move on them from the hive, and by accident or design the queen settled down on one of the branches waving over Uncle Reuben’s mule. The rest followed suit, and in two minutes the animal was loaded. She had come to a halt of her own accord, and the old man sat with his mouth open and gazed in astonishment Not for long, however. Some of the bees skirmishing around on the outside concluded to feel of the old mule and see what she was made of, and as about fifty stingers entered her feelings at once she reared up, uttered a terrific snort and started off at break neck speed. Uncle Jerry was dumped into the road at the first jump, and as he scrambled up and saw the mule on a dead run, with the sticks of wood flying and the wheels shedding spokes at every turn, he mined his hands and shouted: “I takes it all back, Julius! I said back dar dot I’d sell yo’ fur $2 an* a leetle ’possum, but mewls has suddenly riz. Go in, Julius, an’ make a record! De price on yo’ right now is $500 an’ fo’ thousand ’possums, an’ Til add IO pct cent. ebery minute till to’ is oater sizht!” TK* Ohio River Still oi Mich Dam aal* Cincinnati, Feb. 27.—At eleven o’clock this morning the river had reached a little over fifty four feet and was still rising. Unless there should be phenomenally rainy weather within the next four days it is not thought the flood win reach the 1883 atd 1884. out of their low grounds of Newport and other points river. The river is still rising at the rate of an inch and a half an hour. The iron works and saw mills of Newport, Kentucky, have stopped operations because of the high water and others are likely to follow soon in Covington and in this city. Railroad communication is hourly growing more and more uncertain to the exposed roads, and it is possible that trains cannot get into the central passen ger station by night. Cincinnati, Feb. 27.—Shortly daybreak dawned a steady rain set in which continued the entire day. At nine o’clock to night the rain still continues to fall though not very heavy, the rain is severe in this section it will probably cause a flood, but if it con tinues at the rate which it is now falling even throughout the entire Ohio valley it will hardly do more than remain at its present stage or a little higher for a few gass only.

In none of our American periodicals, except perhaps The Century and Harper’s Magazine, is the high plane of this work approached, and the English editions of these magazines are superior in their advertising departments to the American, both in quality and quantity. The last Christmas Harper was a prodigy bulk and variety, being swollen to treble size by the “favors” of English advertisers. Interleaving is a favorite device. How much of this is done by the publishers themselves I do not know, but circulars and hand bills in ail colors and often quaint typography flutter from the leaves of every magazine, and samples of cloth, thread, cocoa, polishing powder and what not are put up in pretty envelopes and lie sandwiched, not only in monthlies and quarterlies, but at the most pathetic point of your shilling novel. The same fraud which all well informed men know permeates tho trotting turf at the present time then ran riot the runners. So open did the become that upon one famous day than half a century ago, all the men turfites in America announced withdrawal from all participation in this sport, and immediately sold their stables to the highest bidders and at figures low that the term “highest” is really the depth of sarcasm.—Moses P.

The stories about Frenchmen eating snails are believed by many people to have no foundation in fact, but to only a phase of the exaggeration which Yankees are apt to indulge, in scribing the queer things that are to found on Parisian dining tables. Nevertheless it is a fact that nearly I pounds of snails are sold daily in Paris markets to be eaten by dwellers in Paris. They are carefully reared for purpose in extensive snail gardens in provinces and fed on aromatic herbs make their flavor finer. One snailery Dijon is'said to bring in to its 7,000 francs a year. Many Swiss tons also contain large snail where they are grown with much pains. They are not only regarded as a great delicacy, but are reckoned as very nutritious. Hygienists say tuey contain 17 per cent. of nitrogenous matter, and that they are equal to oysters in nutritive properties. Snails son also extensively used as an article of food in Austria, Spain, Italy and Egypt and the countries on the African side of tho Mediterranean. Indeed, the habit of snails as food has existed in various of Europe for many centuries.—Good Housekeeping. Heavy Slows aid Chilly Weather Varina Polit*.

That which we ordinarily designate so is, after all, only the mere of a series of winding passages, w like the lobbies of a great building, from the world without to th© world within. Certain of these passages are full ttquzil, and their membranes are like parchment curtains across the corridor at different places, and can thrown into vibration or made to tremble like the head of a drum or the sur* face of a tambourine does when struck with a stick or with the fingers. Between two of thole parchment like tains a chain of very small bones which serves to tighten or relax membranes and to communicate vibrations to them.

We publish to day an article from the Iowa City Republican in regard to the cb in go of vote* in former prohibition counties There is great truth in tho statement made but we want to call the attention to one feature of this move-ment. It is in regard to the “straight out’’ republicans. Mr. Fairall. the editor of the Republican, is a prime mover in the matter, and a gentleman a. Des Moines, who was once elected to office by democratic votes, is another. We have it on reliable authority that there were just live gentlemen rn the ‘ straight out” republican convention at Des Moines recently We also learn that Mr Blanchard, the editor of the Dubuque Ledger, was refused admissing to the performance after having been invited We give these facts only to beep history right. A fuss is made about ‘ suaightout’’ republicans. We wish Brother Fairall would tell us* wha; be means by a “atraightout.’’ There is a good deal of controversy of late on this point. Our friend’s paper slandered the Gazette ail last summer and fall about being a mugwump, because we took exception to some things being done ^n the party. He lays it on his brother, the preacher, who at times edits the paper, and his brother when “called barit’’ declares it WM his brother Herbert, the editor. And jet the Iowa City Republican now turns in and, while taking the same position exactly held by the Gazette for some time, that of leaving prohibition where it can be enforced and laving local op tion and high license for the cities where pi Hic sentiment is largely against pin-hibition, declares that the “movement'’ is made by only ‘'fitraightout’’ republicans. As the darkey preacher down south rays “Why, becase. derefo’’ -The Gazette is a “stralghtout ” But if there were only five “stra'ghtouts’’ in the great convention at Des Maine3, then what? “Because why.” Who can tell’ Are the “straightouts’’ so scarce as that Has it come to pass that there are three clares of republican*, “straightouts,” “mugwump” and “pro-h b.tion.” Have the ‘atrrightouta” dwindled down to a mere handful, or what is the trouble ? Why is the editor of the Iowa City Republican a better republican than the editor of the Gazette? What right has he to declare the Gazette a guerilla, any more than we should call the Republican a guerilla. What is Sam Clark, the man who bas fed the rising generations in I ;wa for a th'rd of a century on republicanism with a spoon, using heroic menEurea a cu-es of obstinacy to get the medic!'.e down? Ii he ‘ mugwump ” “etraigbtout” or “prohi? ' What :s the Stat© Register ? What i i tne Sioux City Journal? What is tbe Courted Bluff* Nonra oil? Suppose those editors should meet in convention and bo the committee oa resolutions, would their platform of local option for larger cities be “mugwump,” ‘ s-raightout” or “prohi.” We write lion to the neceas:*y in republican racks. thus to call attern for greater charity IOWA IN BRIEF.
