The "family" gives a big • dinneir^^i^tyjvt ihc close of which tlie gueetB respond to apttoastP, each in his oiwn purticnlar style. Even the ecatidal-nionger'in her respoiise claims to beui'very useful member of; sò-cicty, for" ahe ¿ays "eTen if I dp make a little trouble now and then just think of the lovely makings up that follow" tor which she takes credit as the reconciliaton could never have taken p]|ace without the quarrel or disagreement first. The Hiinctiinonioiis individual who protests that he wouldn't cheat a man out of a cent is seated in this company ot shams arid is one the^ big-goat toads- in tlie puddle. ■ Thé pious deacon who hegriidèe|k ìthé hard working minister fais paltry salary while claiming to. "do wliat is right" was faithfully portrayed and his penurious little mind held up to ridicule.- The quack doctor claimed and received KJb ahare of attention, and ih this connection tlie speaker related how a, certain doctor, in filling out the certificate of death of a Itite patient of his, placed ■ after the printed wotds "Cause of death" his own name. And (ho eoaietyrwoman who want? to see how near the fi're^he can get without burning her fingers, "because Us so exciting you know wii.s »howti up in her true colora. The Hhani preacher, the . one Who uses Ilia ministerial robes as b cloak Avas thoroughly denounced, lîven the "noble. profession" of newâijaperdom was attacked and dilated upon,' the space given to murder trials, etc., being condemned especially. While we admit the allegation and deplore its truth, yet we believe aiid afllnn that ieeâ prominence is given to literature of this claaa in òttr bestriew8pai)er8 of today than >YaB given it in ttìe pre.'îB ot teu years ago. It is truthfully said that the writings of an âge are a perfect index aiid reflection ot the morals àbd condiUons of society of thatage.\ W'Uile it ia true that tfiere are seoBational newspapers today who cater to the low and degrading tastes yet the press as a whole is much cleaner and purer than it was even a decade ago. But to return to our text. Sham mourning, the i mourning that is proclaimed by the wearing of IjJack-hued garments, or in other words "fashionable mourning" was; denouncëd by the speaker who cited.ae.ve|5iÌ4n8^ncè3 in the Bible where the mouï^werp^aré-spoken of as being clothed in wiutôv. b"t how thi Î stfengthetis his - aff^ent against the custom.of. dressing mourning is more than we can see,? as in some countries toâay: white is the symbol of iriourtìirig.i while, in China the- niourning cqlor is yellow, though in moa^ coiintries black aigijifies mourniiig. But we agree with Mr. Ambrose ini Object-ingto the custom of dressing mourning which however 'iaj gradiially growing less popular with the masses. The outer garb is in, 310-wisean indication of the feelings, within but simply adds publicity to a sorrow which sliouid be private. Of all shams, Mr. Ambrose pronounces the old bachelor thè "very biggest." Frank Reyburn £fnjoyea;this portion'of the dia-, ¿ourae hugdly congratulating himr self that that i»ligma no,longer at-lachcd itself to hia name but you ought to have seen Bro. Schultz Clap his hand over his "bald açot, and Kecorder Hanson "scroocU" down In 111.-» seat when the speaker usked the "oldoat hnchelor present to "please Btaud," We arc all shams, every laat one of ua to a greater or less, degree^ of course the other is the worae-- but we all like to put our best foot foremost, ifa human nature. ^ We have heard a,number of ad-verse cnticisma ou the lecture, but we wonder if i« some; way those same ftpoplewne not hit by some ot those Mgntni.)g bMts that were flying about V,i»<tnJJp9«i which would account for ^heir Boattjg «nothing bright or witty about it »ayhow." Butjuat the same he said some good things if he, did toucliHie aqra «p«t odcaslotjfiily. Although it is yet eafly in the day, candidates (or cubernatorial honors are aboijt ae pleptiful aa moaquitoes in August, and thie cartoonists are making a ricja hà")--veat from the eituation. So far, everything is apeciilatibn merely, but it looks as thbugn the oiit-. look for the aucceaaful candidacy of Geo. D. Perkins of the Sioux City Jo^rnal ^8 as bi'ightpr, bright-than any other of the faction lead-era. What Iowa needa a thorp bualneaa man at her i^eadi and à man who has made , a aucceaa of his own private buslneaa as Mr. Perkins has is a safe man to intrust with the buaineea of the State. He haa been in politics leas and therefore hna fewer politica^ enemiea than any other aepifant which naturally ia,^ in his favor. Through the còlómns of the Journal lie has worked early and late fpr the success of "^the party and hia servicfea deserve recognition from the party. Of the other can-didatea in the field, Miniater Conger haa quite a •'following and would doubtless made a good run ning if nominated. Sidney Foster wants it, and wants it bad which is bia only excuse Or reaaon for ask. Ing for it, but Sid ian't in the front: row yét. As for A. B. Cumminà what haa he done that the reins of governinentiBbould be placed in hia hand by the republican party? Bolted the ticket whan he'was acting aa attorney for the noted big diatillery, helped to elect a democratic governor, and now has the effrontery arid impudence to ask at the handa óf the party, thè hoiiii-nationfòrthe Governor of Iowa. Verily he has galli WASMINQTOjN letter. (From Out Regulav Correspondent.) And now the English people.will aòòn be wpthing under the : heavy taxea Imposed for the purpose of carrying on . the war in. Africa; Laat year they thought they were heavy but now, well they will have reaaon to remember the date of the accession of ISdward VII to the throne of England. It is said Enc-liahuien are the most patient people in the world butlhe point where patience ceases to bé a -virtue haa arrived. In addition to the already onerous income tax which it has been rumored lately would bring rebellion among the ETOVernment'e own aupportera as it falla heavier ÓU the conaervative than the liberal party, it ia now thought that an import duty pry bably on sugar and tea will De imposed. But the king ia particular aboutits being under Btòòd that it ia a war meaaure so that it will not alter Englands free trade policy. - / List of patents granted to Iowa inventors thie week, repbrted by C, A.

Feb. 25, '01 Pxesident McKinley has received liiaiiy coagratulati'pMs qji^, ,l^i8,J(irm. refusal to allow the American troops to participate in a new military movement against the Chinese, whether that movement be meïely bluff, asit now looks to , be, or actuaily one of military aggression; He lîéliëWs it tb'be wrong in either 'Casé, and that the country will aiiatain his belief. The Senate is showing, as it has 'often done before, that it can work very rapidly, in the disposition of the appropriations, and' senators are very confident that they will all get through, but that will not prevent an extra sèaaion of the next Congresa. Aa the sitnaUon now is, nothing can prevehit an extra session but delay on the part of the Cttbana in completingand forwarding their constitution. The present expectation is that thereon stitution will be in Washingtc^n inside of two weeks. • ■ ■^iis.,,..! -.i-,^ y The Revenue Reduction bill is atill hung up in conference, owing to the refusal of the Hottse con? ferees to accept the Senate i-cdiic-tiona ^ the beer and tobacco tax, andjit^-fate is in doubt. i^çy Morgan resolution for the abrogation of the Clayton-Barbour treaty has been adversely reported to the Senate. An examination shows tliatPresi-dent Grant camewithin one niejn-ber of starting his second administration he had at the close of his firat, just as President McKinlCy will do; also that President Grant was the first reelected president wlio reappointed the holdover members of his cabinet at the beginning of-his second administra-tioni Why he did so, nobody seems to know, as he and liis advisors must have known that members ot the cabinets of Madison, Monroe, Jackson and Lincoln served in two administrations under their origin-appointments and that sending the nominations of those who retained the same portfolips to the Senate the second time waa not necessary. It is probable that the only Cabinet' nomination that President Mc kinle/will send to the executive Session of the Senate, to be held immediately after his inauguration, will be that of a successor to Attorney General Griggs, although there is nothing to iirevent his,following Gen. Grant's example and sending in new nominations for the holdovers ii he sees 'fit. Representative Burleigh, of Maine voiced the sentiments many re-.pubiicans.when he said: "I don't want to come back to Washington for an extra sejssion of Congresa, but J think the President will be right in calling , one to consider the Cuban constitution. H^ will be right in asking Congress to share responsibility for what is. done in the Island. Whatever the policy pursued, there will nece»-. aarily be more or less criticism. Republicans in the Senate and House, to inj'' mind, should stand together on whatever legislation may seem wise at an extra session, if one is called." Representative Cannon ^më-Umes takes a lihtd fall bers of the Hbuae who are ahvays ready to talk but seldom say, anything of importance. Just after Représentative Gaines, of Tennes-seà, had made one of the characteristic ' speeches- which caiise his nLine to figure so frequently in the Coiigressional Record, Mr. Cannon dryly remarked: "My friend from Tennes^ç reminds me of the roaring of wat&r, as it goes over a dam. It makes a giteat deal of rtoise, but it turns no maciiinery at all." House Instead of tile Senate Commerce, Committee having increased the amount carried by the River and Harbor bill, aa has been constantly asserted by various, parties since the bill was sent over from the nonae, the bill, as reported to the Senate, has its total reduced by nearly '810,000,000. Senators ' who ought, to know say there is no danger of tiie bill failing! .. , . A bill has been favorably 'reported to tlie Senate providing foi the revival of the grade of vice-admiral in the navy and authorizing the President to appoint two officers thereto.. The. bill ia intended to put an end - to . the ,di3: agreeable Sampson-Schley controversy by having them both made vice-admiral. . , , President McICinlej' this nominated Gen. Shaftcr to Major General in the regular army, and there is no doubt of. the eon-firniation -of the nomination, as most of the Senators believe that Gen. Shafter has earned a promotion. week be a It should ijlease every American to know that no American troops will particijrate in the iiiilitary expedition against China's temporary capital that is being organized by Count \?aklerscc.
