WHITNEY, ^nllBERlillDeiSFITTEB mTUBS,,SINB:8, IROITAND LEAD PIPES, \ VaSH BASINS, WATE11 Des Moines, la. i March 8.-Now that the legislature has settle down to business, there is cousiderable speculation as toiwhat will be done.   It' is talcen for granted that not very much legislation will be attempted,/ the time is so short. There seems to be a feeling that some measure for cheaper school Ixtoks should and wiUljepassod.' ^The oldv 'time pub-tishers are working � together to oppose state uhiformity or state pftblication. A new:.sctidol; book trust composed"of pub-Ijshersqf cheap books at St. Paul.Indianr opolis and 8t.,Loui3, is working for state publication, expeCUng to get the con-tractaf.thatiB decided upon.   .To: most people-it looks - as if- the public would simply bo changing from one :'pool :or trust to another, with the added disad-i vantagethat the change would result in an inferior article of text books.   So that scheme is meeting with much oppo-. sition.    Inquiry shows that in most places the f real' cause for complain t is against the retail denier, who mak(is tlie profit,':and not tlie'pnbhslier, who makes a.veryrsmall margm of profit.   As th'e result of all the arguments and discussions it" 18,. predicted now that the actual legislation ::nttie subject this season' will be some measure to : allow or cotli-pel the directors of any scliool district to liuy, the books direct- from the pub-lisheju and furnish them tothe pupi sat co|t, where they are able 'to pay for them;,and free when they are not able; ThaE.will be a compromise between the various plans for- free . text books, state unilormity, state publication and - district purcliase. � It seems to ne praotically settled that the . pbarmacy liquor ^ Inw will   be amended about as the druggists, have proposed, taking, awav the harsh and oppressive features of the present law.   . lit seems tO'bQ,undfrstood;alBO that there will be no material change in;'the prohibition law, except possibly to amend It so that the iabupesof ;;illega. searches and seizures may be cut off. ' The railroad legislation, will be limited to empowonug the commissioners to make joint rates. These:: are: about the' only measurns' which the: legislature is expected to pass! in addition to- the appropriation bills The general assemblyi^will;probahly.-.con elude Its work about the fli-st or second week m April. nEPUBI,ICANI.KAGUE CONVENTION, jmp BUASS GAODS EBS:ilib FOUNTAINS -' --" toiiinf part of the'couatir fnm-rt notice. !

BLOOMiNaTON, Ills., March i). --Officets arrived from Say brook in this city, having in custody three young women, sisters-Mrs Mary Smith and Misses Julia and Emma BarnesT-suffering f;-om insanity of the wildest and most afflicting character. They aremembers of one of the best families of Saybrookand have lost tbeir reason from attendance upon meetings conducted by'* advocates and disciples of the doctrine of Christian science. The married sister was tlie first to embrace.the new doctrine: and was soon joined by her sisters; All the efforts of their relatives to. control them have proved futile and it became neces-sa.y to put them in the county-jail. v. ; ; A VICTIM OF HYDROPHOBIA.

WASHlNaroN, Maroli-3.-The delegates to the international American conference are beginning to talk about final adjournment, which will probably take place about the 1st of April.  Nearly all of the committees have made  their reports, and several of them have already been adopted.. The report of the committee on customs union, which considers reciprocities, is in the hands of (he printer.  The three committees on postal and cable communication on the Atlantic, Pacific and Caribbean sea, have their   reports    prepared,   and   they are now being translated.  The reports of the committee on customs regulations and the committee on port dues are both about ready.  The corami.tee on extradition and banking will finish their labors withm a few days^  The committee on arbitration has agreed" to recommend the adoption of that method for settling international differences, but has not yet arrived at an agreement as to the details of the plan for its report. The committee on monetary convention will make two reports, one "of which will recommend the coinage of a common silver dollar to be.legal tender in com-mircial, transactions between the citizens of the several nations.  The other report prepared and presented by Mr. Coolage,. of the Unit�d States delegation, will recommend the issue of oertiflcatos by the United States upon any bullion that may be deposited in the United States treasury by the citizens or authorities of the Central and South American states.  These reports are both in the hands of the printer, and will be submitted for. action very soon.  The re-portsof the committee on railway communications, sanitary regulations and weights and measures have been already adopted by the conference. Many HougUB Under Water.

EEVOLUTION IN  CANADA. a Movement to Throw Off the British Yoke and Substitute a Peoi>Ie!B Government.   . Montreal, Que., March 8.-A league has been formed here to bring about the independence of Canada by 1893. All the American powei-n are to be asked to exert their moral influence and, if need be, to take concerted action to free the country from the last vestige of European rule on the continent. The league will have united wiMi it all the Liberal clubs in the country, American iini-veraities are to be invited to co-opevate as well as political bodies, which have for an object the bringing about of the, final triumph of Democratic Institutions throughout the world. The league will be under the control of a supreme council, whose actions will be kept secret. This,new departure, coming after the recent action of Liberal clubs in declaring for independence, causes much comment here. J.
