honorable body with the recommendation that it be published in suitable form for the commission recommends the appropriation of for the erection of suitable Monu i am of the opinion this amount is not a larger pro portion of Iowa troops took part in this siege than in any other Battle or and numerically More soldiers from Iowa were there engaged than from any other state save visitors ought never to leave this Park doubting either the patriotism of Iowa soldiers or the appreciation of Iowa the Light brigade in the famous charge at Balaklava lost 03 per and Tennyson has immortalized their the Twenty second Iowa in a single charge at Vicksburg lost 82 per several other regiments during the siege lost from 50 to Over 70 per and it will now be the privilege of the Twenty ninth general Assembly to permanently commemorate both their valor their awful i am still of the opinion that the salary of the chief executive of this state ought to be a Bill fixing the salary at Tarj lower House of the Twenty eighth Gen eral but for want of time failed to pass the salaries of All state Oili Ceis Are very they were fixed at a time when Livi Gex lenses were lighter than at Lott Clyl in former years Tho Bond of the treasurer of state was through the discretion lodged with the chief has been recently in creased to for More than six months the balance in the Treasury of the state has exceeded and i am of the opinion that the treasurers Bond ought to be approximately i am also of the opinion that this Bond should be furnished at the expense of Tho Tho Market value of Tho Bond now furnished by the state treasurer is per the present treasurer actually paid in Cash for his Bond of the proposition on final analysis re solves itself thus Tho Stuto if his Bond shall remain at must pay per

or the time of assessing if left with the executive coun might be changed to that the whole subject should be before the Council for adjustment at Tho this action was not taken for the purpose of
