Dubuque Telegi-ahp-Herald, July'ss special car bearing the Cuban exhibit enrouteto Portland for the last two months of the fair, has received a liberal patron- age from Dubuque citizens since its arrival last Monday. Dubuque people are appreciating its educational op- portunity, and the foreign exhibit from Cuba has won their quick ap- proval. The car itself handsome, spec- ially built observation; car, inside is indeed found a "trip to Cuba." The car Is literally packed with exhibits, every nook and corner being filled, while many are placed over head on the ceiling. The growing importance of the young republic of Cuba 'is shown in a clearer manner than can be gathered from any source other than a trip over the water to the is- land. An appropriate painting on the ex- terior is that of the "Wreck of the as it has been standing since the explosion in Havana bay. Every patriotic citizen of America will al- ways "Remember the and it is very likely that. Spain will have a long memory also. Relics from the wreck oE the ill-fated battleship are found in the car.

EL Smith ,pf this place, Attorney Geo. A. Mclh- tyre, who with Senator O. B. Court- right of Waterloo represents Dr. Smith, said in reference to the meet- ing not having been legally called: "The board acted eminently fair with' us. When the error in the manner of their assembling was called to their attention in the morning, they ad- journed until the afternoon to deliber- ate upon the legality of their proceed- ings. When they reassembled they gave it as their opinion that it would not be advisable to proceed with the case, and accordingly adopted a reso- lution dismissing the proceedings. I have learned that they expect to have another meeting on August 8, intended to be legally called, at which time it is within their power, if they see fit to do so, to take new action in this case. Whether they will do so or not, it is not'proper for us to antici- pate." Upon the evening of his return home from Des Moines, Saturday, Dr. Smith was tendered an ovation by his friends in this city and surrounding country, fully 600 people congregating on .the mill square, in the vicinity of the doc- tor's store, where a large bon-fire was built and a .number of anvil .salutes fired., Notwithetanding the size o heard any expressions of iU-will to- ward fact those who par ticipated In the affair desire it under stood that the demonstration was simply an evidence of good will Co- ward Dr. Smith, and not antagonistic to anybody.

Mr. Robbins is only 21 years of age, but is said to be one of the most thorough mining engineers in America, and he was selected for the position on account of his knowl- edge of the country jn the far east and its requirements in the mining indus- try. Mr. Robbins will leave tomorrow on his long journey, and will sail from Vancouver on the steamer Empress of China September 4. Mr. Robbins has signed a three year contract with' the company to- look" after its en- gineering work in the mines. VIGOROUS APPLAUSE GREETED! MISSOURI MAN.

SISTER OF BAILEY GOT NO EN- COURAGEMENT FROM GOV. FOLK YESTERDAY. PETITION TO GOVERNOR Laporte People Moved to Petition the Governor, But Did Not Visit Him jn a Body Dr. C. Knowles, of Laporte, brother-in-law of Edgar Bailey, and his wife, sister of Edgar Bailey, were in the city yesterday to have a talk with Gov. Folk in regard to the sen-' tence of Edgar Bailey, who is'now confined in the county jail in Kansas City under sentence to be hanged on September 11. It had been hoped by the parents of Edgar Bailey that a large number of influential business, men of Laporte would come to Wa- terloo yesterday and appeal to the; governor to commute the man's sen- tence to life imprisonment. But such was not the case. The conference- No speaker has ever received mora vigorous applause than-did Go-v'ernos Joseph Folk, of Missouri, when .hi stepped upon the platform Monday af- ternoon at Chautauqua. The audience applauded the distinguished governor for several minutes and it was a marked tribute to the man who during the last year has achieved, such suc- cess in fighting corruption in the poli- tical affairs of his state. Gov. Folk presents a magnificent appearance on the platform. Well; proportioned, a strong, intellectual and kindly face, dressing in a neat and tasteful manner, he would attract! special attention in any group of men. As one lady, describes him, "The good; crops out all over his face." He pos- sesses y'well.modulated voice, and ia delivery is simple and earnest. He is not a fourth of July orator, but by, ease and grace is able to hold the- at- tention of all. ..During the half hour preceding tha lecture musical selections were ren- dered by Mr. Traines, of Indepen- dence, Prof. Prowell, Bruce Da- vis and Mrs. Bateman. Following which Mr. Loveland introduced as pre- siding-officer Hon. Cato Sells, of Yin- ton. Mr. Sells introduced Gov. Folk.' He stated in brief ''that the men who "became prominent in public aflaira were men who met the wants and de- mands ot the public. Public righteous- ness demands the .enforcement of.tnet law.

Harlan, August :badly char- red body of Mrs. Peter Hein, the wife of a prominent German farmer resid- ing eight miles west of here, was found Monday in a grove about two hundred yards from the house. The fire had been kindled in a pile of twigs between her feet. The Shelby; county officials are mak- ing a careful investigation of the burn- ing and meanwhile are keeping their discoveries a secret. The affair is shrouded in mystery. So far, the is said, have been unable to find any motive for a crime and are at a loss for a clue. The coroner's jury brought in a verdict finding thafe Mrs: Hein came to her death some time between Sat- urday morning and Sunday morning, but or by what means the jury did not know. A post mortem showed no bruises, no bones' broken, no injury to the windpipe.

Rock Island to .go to his home in Laporte. Mrs. Knowles appeared in a downcast mood, and from all indications it could be seen that Gov. Folk's visit to Waterloo had not been as fruitful of success by Bailey's friends as they had hoped. Gov. Folk was very guarded in what he said to a Reporter representative and he was also inclined to say little to the sister who made the pitiful ap- peal to him to save her brother from the death that awaits. He appeared anxious to learn from Bailey's friends about the early lite of the man. Mother to Visit Hep Son.

In a government, such as ours, which rests on the people, every man should take an. active interest 'in the selection of those who represent the people In an official capacity. The need is for actuated. by the public good instead of those in politics for revenue only.
