past week in legislative circles has seen the presentation of two of the strongest state papers received by any Iowa legis i latnre in years I refer to the biennial message of Governor Jackson and the inauguraladdress of Governor Drake The former was presented to both bouses of the assembly on Tuesday and it cer tainly deserves more than passing men tion After quoting tbe statistics of the various state institutions the governor calls attention to the fact thatthe de mands upon these institutions are far greater than their capacities The sol diers home the institution for tbe fee ble minded and other like institutions are cited and be brings home tbe fact to our people that otber states have been placed in a similar situation and have proven equal to the Our own people he says are just as pbilan tbrophic as are tbe citizens of any otbei stateand they should not shirktbe re sponsibility which in bis opinion can only be met by a broader more and more just policy on behalf of the state In comparison be cites the per capita expense of state government in cluding tbe support of state institutions in several of tbe eastern states and in Iowa The figures are instructive and are here given In New York tbe per capita expense is in Pennsylvania in Ohio in Michigan in Minnesota and in Iowa only 89 cents The governor adds that it is not reasonable to expect that Iowa can continue long to keep pace with ber sister states on this showing made Suggests a Kcmcdy To remedy matters he says that he does not favor increasing tbe burden of taxation on any property tbat is at pres ent paying its just share but be ad vises that theinillious of dollars of prop erty that evade the assessor annually be required to pay its proportion of the taxes and in this line be says that tbere is no good reason wby our revenues might not be increased by taxing fran chises writs and express companies and by levying upon collateral inheritances Tbe state of Pennsylvania wbicb in 1893 collected in taxes upon collateral inheritances is cited Turn ing from this subject to our educational institutions be urges that the univers ity be given a more generous endow ment and be says tbat this would be good policy from a businesss tandpoint as at present more than are contributed annually by Iowa boys and girls to institutions of learning in other states and this money might be kept at home if the policy of the state was such as would build up our university by the bestowal of a strong endowment The other state educational institutions are commended to the favorable attention of tbe legislature In regard to the public schools it is urged that steps be taken for the better qualification of teachers aud the adoption of the free text book system is endorsed on the ground that it would have a tendency to largely increase the attendance upon these schools Recommends a State Reformatory In regard to the state penal system the message states that reports which the governor has obtained from the differ ent counties show that 30000 people are committed to city and county jails every year It recommends inspection of the jails and strongly urges tbe establish ment of a state reformatory for first offenders between the ages of 15 and 22 sentences do not exceed two years The establishment of a board of Parole and Pardons is also urged The report ofthe state treasurer is quoted from showing the total receipts during the fiscal vear ending June 80 1895 to be and the state anditors warrants redeemed 87839 leaving a balance on band at that time of In regard to the workings of the mulct law the message states that dur ing the year ending June 30 1805 the loss of government permits to sell bquors in the state as compared with the previous year under prohibition was 1768 The number of saloons taxed under the mulct law during the year 1620 and the total revenue de rived therefrom amounted to Inauguration of Drake The inauguration of Governor Drake which occurred on Thursday passed off very satisfactory There was an im mense crowd The inaugural was a strong and businesslike document It dealt with the topics of the day in a manner that showed great study and comprehension All the state institu tions received careful attention and es pecially the educational institutions One expression was the keynfite to this part ofthe address Iowamust edu cate air America must educate or per ish The addressindorsed the project of erection of a memorial hall and also the placing of bronze statues of the late Judge Samuel F Miller iii the state and national capitols Good highways and the development of the waterways were commended and on the subject of railways tho gist of the reference to them may be summed up in tho follow ing extract Tho nearer tho railroads and the people get together and learn to understand and respect the rights of each otber the better it will be for both He recommended that bank rupt stocks ran into the state for sale by nonresidents be taxed and to that end that bonds be required of inch Tendon The raising of the age of consent of fe males to la years was urgently recom mended On national questions tne address was pronounced for protection and sound money and in the matter xf foreign re lations it was just as pronounced in favor of the Monroe doctrine The Turkish handled sternly and the action of the socalled Christian nations of Europe who by jealousies have permitted the massacres to con tinue was severely criticised During the inaugural Senator Allison yas seated on tlie platform and after she address the people of one accord be au

of the senate by Sena tor Ellis Clinton and in behalf of the house byRepresentative Temple Osce The seconding speeches were by Senator Healy Port Dodge and Repre senative McArtbur Burlington To give anything like a resume of the speeches is not within the scope of this letter They were eloquent and patri otic and when the voice was given to the wish of every Iowa Republican that Senator Allison may be selected as the partys standard bearer in the next na tional campaigri the enthusiasm of the spectators was stirred to its depths The nomination was carried by acclamation and emphasized by a rising vote A special committee soon escorted Senator Allison before the caucus aud after the applause with which he was greeted had subsided he returned his thanks for the honor received at the bauds

street markets remain gen erally quiet There is now almost an entire absence of the spirit of distrust evoked by the Venezuelan affair and it is taken for granted that the disposi tion on both sides to settle the matter through arbitration or by conference between Great Britain and Venezuela will prevent any other disturbances ot public confidence There is also a dis appearanc of the London

unusual remains ill our financial re lations with Great Britain Bond Issue W1U Bo Taken There is every indication that the subscriptions to the United States loan j to be opened Feb 5 will easily take up the entire bonds offered The bond syndicate realizing this fact concluded to step out which to say the least is a magnanimous act The an nouncement of the dissolution of tho syndicate however reveals the fact that the syndicate had received sub scriptions amounting to which amount was pledged to bo paid into the United States treasury as re quired thus showing the supply of gold in this country ready to go into govern ment bonds at a remunerative rate and which must be a surprise not only at home but abroad After this exhibition of gold strength it willscarcely bo fair for European

tho ground that tho rate was a discrimination against ship pers by the railroad and Morris ac ceptance of the rate iu no wise made him guilty of discrimination The EfToot of tho Decisions These decisions are in effect that a shipper could not bo held for violation in accepting a rebate and is the first legal interpretation of that part of the interstatecommerce law making ship pers equally
