There waa a large number of women,
mostly from Henry county, present in
the interest of the equal suffrage resolu
tion, who kept close tab on the delegates
to see that it didn't get lost. A dicker
was sprung on the convention by Vr.v
Huesey, of Stewartville, who said that
if the convention would put up a man
who would pledge himself as "all right"
on t'ae school question he would receive
the cupport of several patriotic organiza
tions. It was then decided to take a recess
pending the report of the resolution com
mittee, which was in a wrangle over tne
tq.ial suffrage resolution.
The chairman of the committee on res
olutions then read its report which was
1. That we 6T9 in favor of a universal

The Iowa State band gave two delight

yesterday, immense audiences being
present on both occasions afternoon
and evening the street railway company
being kept busy with all the cars it could
muster into service to accommodate the
throngs. The music was as was expect
ed, of the highest order of artistic merit
The band does not depend upon its solo
ists to produce the effects which have
charmed so many thousands, nor does it
rely upon new selections. Old familiar
airs, given with wonderful harmony and
precision, are what have made the Iowa
State bend famous the world over, ap
parently. It was a beautiful afternoon
for such an entertainment, which proved
one of the most enioyable in every sense

"Farmer" linrns Wins Again Yesterday's
The wrestling match between "Far
mer" Burns, tbe champion middle-weight
wrestler of the world, and Hugh Dough
erty of England, occurred at Buffalo on
Saturday night as advertised, the far
mer being again the victor. The match
took place at Turner hall and was wit
nessed by a large crowd. It waa catch-as-catch-can,
two points dewn, best
three in five Tails, the winner to take 60
and the loser 20 per cent of the gate re-
ceipts, the balance to go to the manage
ment of the hall. Both men were in good
condition and went io work with a will,
Dougherty winning the first fall in 10
minutes. The next three falls were won
by Burns in less than 15 minutes each.
This will probably end the wrestling be
tween Burns and Dougherty.
