Another victory was the submission to the dictates of Vilas and Ryan that John A Aylward of Madi son be elected permanent chairman of the state convention The radicals submitted, on the plea that they could thereby ward off strife, but they forced the conservatives to submit to the munici pal ownership platform. Ryan called the pi ink socialistic"rank so cialism," saia he But he was howled down.

Crack Legislation of the Empire State Will Fail of Desired Effect. He SayB, Just as Soon as the Public Memory RelaxesA Plain Talk to Officers of Fraternals. Special to The Journal. Madison, Wis., June 30.Apparently State In surance Commissioner Zeno M. Host does not think very much of the so-called "model" insur ance laws enacted by the New York state legis lature ae a result of 'the Investigations and recommendations of the Armstrong committee. In hi annual report, th advance sheet of whichshave jnst been madeepublic, he says:s "Fraud and deception will not only continue, but will be sanctioned by the Btate while the 'model laws,' from which the people hoped so much are left In a condition to permit, by a slight amendment, the issuance of the deferrerd dividend contract again* just as soon as the managements feel warranted by the lethargic memory ef the public Hits theg,Lobby. Commissioner Host gives an exhaustive review of the efforts made by the Wisconsin. Insurance department the past ten years to remedy what he terms "the one great evil in the Insurance business," the lack of accountability Prior to 1897, he says, when first was presented a meas ure requiring an annual apportionment of surplus and a provision prohibiting the proxy and estab lishing the policy-holder's right to vote directly, either in person or by mail, there was no such thing lino'Mi in Wisconsin as an insurance lobby. Since then, however, lt has been strenuous and successful, in part at least, in its efforts to pre vent remedial legislation. The commissioner presents a draft of a bill designed to remedy the evils he points out in his report and strongly urges upon the legis lature the adoption of this or a similar measure. Talks to Fraternal Men. Mr. Host appeared before the Wisconsin Life Insurance investigating committee and a large number of officials of fraternal insurance com panies at Milwaukee and in an address declared his belief that these societies will not adopt adequate rates unless required to do so by stat utory provision The premium to be paid from year to year for a fixed amount of insurance, he said, must be an increasing amount at all times to cover the full ourrent or actual cost, according to the attained age of the Insured. He added. "Without calculating or basing the rate of premium upon tables of mortality, the policy of life Insurance becomes a gambling contract, pure and simple. By no means can life Insur ance extending over a period of more than one year be written withont the accumulation of a reserve or a gradual increase in cost, and no system has yet been discovered or devised which will permit ignoring the laws of mortality and avoid failure and disaster."

Recitations, Piano Work, Choruses, Drills and Other Good StuntsStory of "the Last Day of School" at Rapid City, S. D. Special to The Journal. Rapid City &. June 80 Prom a tepee to a modern ecnooinouse, from the laay care lessness of the Sioux tongue to the precision of the English language, is a far cry, but it is the accomplishment within but a few years of, many Indian children. The government school for Indians Is hold ing its closing exercises this week, and boys and girls who, weie lt not for their friend, Uncle Sam, would be Hying aimlessly in ignor ance and squalor upon the reservations, are proving what they can do. Many of the chil dren taking pait are mixed bloods, sons and daughters of squawmen, and could not be dis tinguished by their looks from any other school ebildren in the land. They all have American names, but the program wtB well interspersed with the good old Indian names of lion Lightning, Elk Thunder, etc. The numbers consisted of piano duets, pan tomimes, recitations, choruses, band music, drills and, In fact, just such a variety as might be found on the "last day of school" almost anywhere In our land And the young Indian boys and girls seemed really to enjoy the pub Uclty and the limelight. They applauded each other's efforts vigorously, laughed at the jokes, and joined heartily in the choruses Boys and all sang with a will, and a college medley which they gave seemed to be an especial fa vorite. Musically, they possess a good sense of rhythm, and some ability In musical expression, but the "good ear" for music is lacking Early in the week a band of Indians, 200 strong, came in Indian file over the divide into Rapid Valley. They had their wives, children and ponies with them and camped In the out skirts oj* town. They had come, as come all true American patriots, to witness the com mencement exercises In which their children would all take some part, however small The exercises were given twice, once for the benefit of fathers and mothers, and again for the curious and interested public. Many of the students will return to their homes with their parents some of them will remain on the reservation, and retnrn in dome measure to the life of their ancestors Last year an order was Issued forbidding the chil dren to so home thru the summer, as it was thought that the return to old associations was demoralizing So great was the uproar raised among the Indians that it became necessary to rescind the order.

Charges Are Made that It Worked Off an Abandoned and Useless Property, Selling Stock by Means of False RepresentationsAttempt to Recover $90,000. Bpeoial to The Journal. Negaunee, Mich., June 80,Suit ha been started in the United States court ats Chicago by Alfred S. Ooetello, H. Costello, Harvey Cheney and Robert Cheney, all of Hartford, Conn., against H. K. Flagler, president Wil liam Dickinson, treasurer, and other offi cers and stockholders of the Flagler Iron & alleged that that amount was obtained from the plaintiffs by the sale of stock by means of false representations. The litigation recalls the Kloman mine deal of two years ago. The Kloman Is an abandoned property- that was worked out many years go It Is located at Republic,, in the western end of Marquette county, and thru the purchase of the stock of the old company at a nominal figure Marquette and Republic men, among them E. J. Mapes and J, H. Primeau, came into possession of the tract, beUeving that lt still had possi bilities of becoming valuable. Subsequently they entered into an agreement with the Flagler people for the sale of the mine. The Flagler company at once took steps to reopen the property. Pumps were put In, the workings were unwatered, and there was every evidence of a bona fide Intention to re sume operations. However, in many minds there was a suspicion of the plans of the Flagler Iron & Steel company, and it was greatly augmented when the officers of the concern sent forth alluring circulars in which the Kloman was played up as a very valuable asset, whereas lt was generally known In this region that the mine was in reality merely an aban doned scram. The Kloman Iron company or some of Its representatives, received $10,000 from the Flag ler company, but the stockholders became In volved in litigation before the deal went thru, and before the Flagler company went up, for it is now defunct, having gone out of exist ence several months ago J. Primeau sued E J. Mapes for an accounting. The company's affairs are in the courts and are said to be badly tangled. Meanwhile Mark Elliott, clerk of Marquette county, is the receiver, tho he says the funds In bis hands are hardly worth mentioning. The equipment at the old mine has been seized to partially satisfy liens secured by creditors of the Flagler company and the looation is again deserted.

S and Detroit Owing to a mlstaie made by the city council In 1888, the system of numbering stores and residents in this city is causing much Incon venience. Instead of starting the numbers with the beginning of the block, a start was made before the block was reached and as a result, the numbers of every building In the city are Just one block wrong. There is every probability that the council will cause the error to be rectified at once. Mail carriers are complaining about the absence of numbers on the residences and lt Is likely that the council will make the change In the numbering without delay and then take steps to see that every house is provided with a number DEADWOOD, 8.

Wit such commercial enterprise as this, and with easy access to the golf of Mexico Via excellent railroad lines, one cannot help but look to Austin for growth.

Again, capitalists who are desirous of establishing factories, mills, or other enterprises in Austin wSl find upon investigation that they are not loaded down with conditions, that the building laws are not unreasonable, but that every man is given a square OmL be he a millionaire or a strutting younac merchant.
