Announcement of toe President Visit to
the West Again Made.
Many as have been the rumors and
counter rumors as to the president's
coming west during August, it is now
given out by Gen. K- G. Dyrenforth,
commander-in-chief of the Union Vet
erans' Union, that the president will
attend the national encampment of
the Union at Des Moines, Aug. 22.
The national encampment of the
Union Veterans' Union was held in
Kock l.'Jand last rear, it will be re
membered, and the attendance of the
president was then promised, but it
was announced at the time that the
state of war in .which we were en
gaged required his presence at Wash
ington. 1 he encampment hem in this
city elected Gen. Dyrenforth couimand-
er-in-cbiei, and selected fccranton, l a.
as the place of meeting this year, but
the change to Des Moines has since
been made. The influence of Con
gressman Henderson, of Dubuque, the
speaker of the next house of represen
tatives. and who is a member of the
Union Veterans' Union, is said to be
in a large degree responsible for the
success of the endeavor to secure the
visit of the president to Des Moines.
If it is ascertained for a certainty that
the president is to go to Des Moines
the three cities ought to be in a posi
tion to secure that long promised visit
here, and the repetition of the oft
made invitation from this city is in

As accidents .are inevitable on the
Fourth, we may expect to hear of the
usual numljer of burned fingers and

prevented, and all hope that tne day
will pass attended by less serious
consequences than has been the case
in years gone by.

Clerk Draws Revolver With Effect.
The steamer Verne Swain was bom
barded with stones at Princeton, Iowa,
while on hex way to Clinton from
Rock Island late Saturday afternoon.
The attack was led by three young
villagers named Knok, Wermet and
Nye, who refusing to pay their fare
after boarding the boat here, were or
dered to go ashore when Hampton was
The Princetonians showed fight and
a desperate struggle ensued before the
crew accomplished their ejection.
Rook was badly bruised in the scrap.
When the Verne wfs about to pull
away from Hampton the mutinous
trio went aboard again, Wermet hand
ing Clerk Remor a ticket for himself
and paying cash for the transporation
of his companions.
The supposition is that one of the
three men telephoned from Hampton
to Princeton and complained of having
been misused by the Verne's crew
and calling on their townspeople to
avenge them, for when the steamer
put into shore at the latter point the
jumping from the boat of Nye and
Wermet was the signal for the begin
ning of an attack by a crowd of row
dies that had gathered on the river
Stones rained thick and fast until
Clerk Remer procured his revolver
from his state room, and leveling the
weapon on Wermet. who was ap
parently leading the assault, declared
he would shoot if another rock was
thrown. Warmet dropped the rock
he had in his hand, and his mother
and sister ran to his side and implored
the clerk not to lire.
The crowd then dispersed and
the boat pulled out for Clinton.
Three members of the crew were hit
and knocked down by rocks, but none
was seriously hurt.
A story explaining the attack on
the Verne is that one of the trio is
related to the f am ale companion of
