groat public of New presented the claims of his territory for admission into the sisterhood of the states of and of thought the Idaho constitution of said that the majority of the committee on territories had seen fit to frame the Idaho bill in such a wajr as to secure partisan legisla tion instead of proper legislation to bring the state into the The minority would offer an amendment

smaller it has failed to find sufficient public opinion to enforce it in the larger cities in tbe counties on the Mississippi which are largely settled by people of European It is an open fact it cannot be forced in such localities without a state constabulary which the temper of the Iowa people would never The republican party have never been united in support of the As many as fifty or sixty

According to the amounts of appropriations recommended y the committees it evident that he levy would have to be two and one half There were some of the sen store who were very much opposed to anything like that basis and they labored strenuously for a two mill They contended that the extra half mill had been put on to build the state capitol and pay the state and now that the pur was accomplished it was unneces ary to keep up the The state insti tutions could get along well enough on educed appropriations and there was no use of burdening the people with any mote increased In defense of the extra null it was said hat the increased population of the tate and the necessary enlargement and progress of her institutions made it nec essary to keep up the taxes to pay for unning
