And it is pleasant to think that in our American home life we have readied this ideal in a degree unexcelled elsewhere. I believe that in the American homes, whether in the city or on the farm, the American father and mother in their relations to their children are kinder, more helpful and benignant than any others |cries of “good! good!*’ and cheers). In these homes is the strength of our institutions. Let these be (irrupted and th** government itself has the stone of strength upon which it *.(>-curdy rests. Here by some accident the water of the artificial water fall immediately behind the president was turned on and its roar almost drowned his voice. I have contended, said he, with brass bands, but I never before have been asked to speak in the roar of a Niagara I Laughter aud cheers, j The, water was soon turned of! and the president said: I had supposed there were limitations upon the freedom of this meeting, both as to Governor Boies and myself, and that no political suggestion of any sort wa- to bo introduced at this friendly concourse of American citizens. I think both ol us have good cause for grievance against the prohibitionists for interrupting ti- with this argument for cold water. (Great laughter. | Referring again to tim coal palace, the president said: "We have in this structure a di-play of all the products of the farm, and side by sid“, a display of mechanical arts. I think iii this combination, in this diversity of interest and pursuit, this mutual aud helpful relation between the tillers of the soil and the workers in our shops, each contributing to the commonwealth and each giving to the other that which he needs, we have that which has brought about the prosperity w e now enjoy and which is to increase under the labors of your children to a degree we have not realized. The progress in tho mechanical arts within the years of my own notice and recollection reads like a fairy tale. Lot us not think we have reached the limit of this development. There are yet uses of the agency already known to be developed and applied. They are yet agencies perhaps in the great storehouse of nature that have not been harnessed for the use of man. Out of all this what is yet to come? Who can tell? You are favored here in having not only a surface soil that yields richly to the labor of the farmer, but in having also hidden beneath that surface rich mines of coal which are to be diverted into power to propel mills that will supply the wants of your people.” The president closed by once more thanking the people for th** kindness of his reception and wishing for Iowa and its citizens the largest increase of prosperity, most secure social order and in-ereasing blessings of home happiness. Set rotary Tracy was introduced but did not speak. Congressman Lacey, of Iowa, Hon. J. lf.

The impatience of the crowd, the desire to get as near as possible to the president’s carriage, the crowd around the reviewing stand, all may have interfered with the parade as did the wet. weather and muddy streets. But such annoyances do not long trouble a patriotic American crowd. Lilt for the rain the decorations would have been all that could have been desired. Governor Boies and his stall made a tine appearance and distinguished citizens of Iowa present from all over lier state, were cheered to the echo. I here was no uncertain sound about the reception tendered Major Lacey. It was a pretty sure indication as to the result Rf I he coming congressional election. This is his own district and the constant cheering which greeted him shows plainly his popularity. Prominent republican politicians too numerous to mention are present, all smiling and anxious to shake by our gallant leader of all were afforded the The impression made by worth not a little to tho state. Everything the answer to the matters politically always “splendid.” We are going to poll our full vote and also a good percentage of the opposition. The crowd, at least most of them, went hungry, they hadn t time to wait at the crowded lunch stands—there was too much to see. _____ Odin.

One of the beautiful incidents of the parade oui ared at Adams school, where three thousand school children congregated to see the president,. He bowed hi- acknowledgement to the happy children, who each waved a flag, and thai their three thousand voices were uplifted in the familiar old hymn, ‘ America.” During th** afternoon a large crowd gathered around the train and the president was again compelled to show himself and speak a few words. He -aid such spontaneous greetings as these gave him courage in the work that is often wearisome and often very full of weary. They helped him to believe that the great masses of the people, have no other interest than that Hie government shall be well administered and that the public offices be lilied By competent, conscientious and honest men.

Wa-hinuton, Get. 9.—Assistant Sec-; rotary Bussey has rendered, in the case of Russell S. Cole, "f Company E, First ■ Nexv York Veteran cavalry, a decision I that defines the status of prisoners of | war, who, having enlisted in the rebel ; service in order to escape imprisonment 1 and return to their own command, are applicants for pensions. The decision j rescinds the ruling made by Commissioner ! Black on May 25, 1885, in which the commissioner held that regardless of cir- j cumstances and of motives, prisoner- of ! war so enlisting in the rebel service, i even a- a device of escape from starvation and imprisonment, should be lichi a-having “voluntarily” aided the rebellion and were debarred from a pension. After presenting fully the legal aspects of the question, the assistant secretary says:    “The    department    must    be con trolled in all cases coming before it. for adjudication of the fundamental rule that the rights of the soldier and of citizen- alike, can never be taken away nor-forfeited, except by tho express term- of the law, the actual and obvious meaning of which shoo id be taken without resort to subtle and forced construction. I respectfully overrule the former decision of your office and grant the pension sought." Will Ile* lee rn Four and One-11 alf Per Cen I -.

London, Get. 9.—A dispatch from Scotland says that Chief Secretary Balfour received with a smile the news of the appointment of a committee iii America to deal with the threatened famine in ireland, and that he remarked: “Dillon and the rest have overdone the thing this time. It was not a famine fund they wanted but more money for the plan of campaigd. Tipperary has cost them £30,000 already.” Many tories think that Mr. Balfour has overdone the denial business aud that the relief from America is likely to take the form of food supplies instead of money, a large portion of which would sooner or later find its way into tho pockets of the landlord-iii payment of rent. Mr. Parnell's health is far from satisfactory, as might have been inferred from his inability to attend the recent important nationlist convention at Dublin. His physicians for Did him from addressing public meetings and Hie utmost that they will sanction in the way of political activity at present is that hi* may meet his colleagues privately in conference.

London, Oct. 9.—Chief Secretary Balfour's letter denying that there is likely to be any famine in Ireland is hailed with delight bv the tory papers, it gives them the cue they needed, and this morning there is a chorus of editorial approval that rn usi Be very satisfactory to the chief secretary. The liberal pap< rs point out Hie inconsistency of Mr. Balfour’s statements. In one breath he says it will be impossible to find out whether the potato crop is a failure or not until they are dug in October. lo another he denies that there xviii he any general failure, and in the next admits that iii certain districts of the west it is a partial failure now. What nationalists, poor laxv hoards, priests and newspaper correspondents have been claiming for tho last two months i- that the potato crop is a total failure in the very districts Mr. Balfour refers to. where the people have been digging them since early in August, and that in these districts the people have nothing else to eat. and must therefore starve if not helped. 'The “measures taken by tin* government,” to which the chief secretary refers, are all as yet in prospective, aud no steps whatever have been taken iii regard to them. Notwithstanding Mr. Balfour's declaration that what little inconvenience may bo caused in Ireland by the potato blight can be remedied by governmental action, the movement to raise a fund iii England for the sufferer*** continues to attract supporter-.

The civilians threw no stones and struck no blows except in parrying blows from the policemen’s batons.

[Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Ft. Dodge, Get, 9,—A heartrending scene was witnessed by a few prison officials in one of the gloomy ceils of th** jail here to day. Frank Hopkins, a prisoner confined for burglary, this morning received news that his mother wa- dying at Manson, twenty miles away. When Hopkins received the -ad tidings he broke down completely and wept like a child. He begged and implored to be allowed to go to herffied-ide, but stern d i sci pl i n** would not permit it. This afternoon news of the death of his parent reached Hopkins, arid when the young man realized that he would not be per mined to attend th** funeral ids grief was almost unbearable. Hopkins is a good looking and bright young fellow. He has not seen Iii-mother since he ran away from home, ten veer- ago.
