County Chairman George K. Esta
brook, of the republican committee, has
received word from State Chairnfan H.
O. Weaver that Governor Shaw will bt
here at that time, and Mr. Estabrook
has already set about to arrange for a
rousing gathering. The Odeon theater
has been engaged, one of the bands will
be procured and the people will be
treated to one of the governor's sound
and sensible addresses. The governor's
services are in great demand during
the campaign, and Marshall county can
consider herself favored in securing his
assignment here. During his brief pub
lic career Governor Shaw has attracted
favorable -comment in all sections of
the country, and his reputation in other
states is almost as great it is in
Iowa. He has the happy faculty of
saying original things in an original
way, and has thus won the hearts of
the people. Therefore Marshall county
will gfve him a royaj reception when ht
comes here next week.
Chairman Estabronk is arranging for
other meetings to follow. Either Con
gressman Cousins or Mr. liankin, tin
iron moulder, will speak in this city
during the campaign, and Hon. John N.
Baldwin, of Council Bluffs, who is on
of the best campaigners in the state,
will a-'dress a meeting at State Center
at a date yet to be determined upon.
Other meetings will be arranged for
Oilman. Liscomb and other places, and
country districts will not be overlooked.
The democratic central committee
has not yet arranged definitely for th*
opening meeting of their campaign in
the county. Chairman Henry is in cor
respondence with the state committee
at present and is making an effort to
secure Carter Harrison for an address.
The last few weeks of the campaign
promise to be nuite lively as far as
goo 1 meetings are concerned.
Mayor Wray and six or OsUuloosn's
Aldermen Invewll^atj Mat-ahull
town's Water lMnnt.
Mayor W. H.'Wray and Dr. L. D.
Cole. Frank Davis, John V. Miller, L.
K. Geneva, Mace Hasan and W. H.
Cunningham, members of the city
council of Oskaloosa, also Mr. Hoy R.
Robinson, ciiy editor of the Oskaloosa
Herald, spent the day in the city for
the purpose, principally, of looking
over the city's water plant and electric
lighting system.
Oskaloosa is at present considering
the advisability of municipal owner
ship of water works, the franchise of
the water company expiring on the 10th
of next month. The city is considering
whether it will be best to buy the plant
or extend to the company another
franchise, providing it makes additions
and improvement to the service. The
proposition of the water company is
that it will dispose of its plant to the
city for $-18,0011. which includes $::f,000
Why? Because we are ex
clusive agents for
or Celebrated
The finest coffee-berries
yet to be expended on the plant for im
provements. The situation now is that
the company runs a ten-inch main to
raise the water 120 feet from the Skunk
river, four miles north of Oskaloosa.
One hundred and sixty pounds pressure
at the river means only forty pounds
in the city, which is not anequate for
the desired purposes. The contemplat
ed improvements are the building of a
new pumping station at the edge of the
jetty and putting in a double main from
the works to the river. To a Times-
Republican reporter Mr. Robinson, of
the Herald, says there is quite a diver
sity of opinion in Oskaloosa as to the
advisability of buying the plant, as
many of the citizens consider the price
asked exorbitant. He said also that it
would not be at all surprising if the
proposition would be defeated when it
was put to a vote.
The visit of the Oskaloosa gentlemen
to the city has been, it is thought, a
very pleasant one as well as profitable.
Mayor Pierce and some of the members
of the city council met them at the de
pot this morning with a carriage and
drove them to the city building, where
the books of City Clerk Trotter were
inspected. Mr. Trotter's system of
bookkeeping was highly commended by
the visitors, and from one of the coun
ellmen It is understood that the same
system will be adopted in Oskaloosa, at
a motion to be made at the next ses
sion of the council. Prom the city
building the gentlemen were driven to
the water works, where a careful In
spection of the machinery of that de
partment, as well as the electric light
ing plant, was made. From there a
trip was made to the new pumping sta
tion, followed by a drive about the city.
The principal features to be learned by
the visit, In regards to the water works
system, are the cost of running the
plant and the amount of revenue de
rived from It.
After dinner at the Pilgrim the visit
ing councllmen, Mayor AVray and Mr.
Robinson were driven to the Immense
factory of the Glucose Sugar Relining
Company, where they were shown
through a part of the buildings. From
there the Soldiers' Home was visited,
after which the gentlemen called at the
Tlmes-ltepubllcan office to see how a
real live newspaper is printed. At 5:30
this evening the visitors will leave for
their homes.
MJBB Uucan Entertains.
There is no greater accomplishment
than to be a gracious hostess. This ad
mirable quality many Marshalltown la
dles possess and among them may be
mentioned' Miss Ida Dugan, whose par
ty given Wednesday evening for Miss
Blanche Denmead and Miss Anna Llp
plncott, of Chicago, was one of the
most enjoyable the young people have
had for some time. About forty guests
were present and It tvas
'evident that the
mystic letter* on the invitations had
been deciphered, tor each one wore bit
best clothes and each gentleman
brought a lady. The assurance that no
egrets were wanted had also been
heeded. The decorations of the parlors
were all of red, roses being the flow'ers
"used. Red roses on the'lamps cast a
cheery glow over the room. The first
hour was spent at the card tables and
the guests tried their luck with the new
game of "Mary." Miss Mary Welles
and Miss Minnie Thayer, of Grlnnell,
tied for the first honor for the ladies and
the prize, a cluster of American beau
ties, was given to Miss Welles. There
were three contestants for the gentle
man's prize, which was a handsome
copy of Kipling's "Plain Tales from the
Hills." The drawing of cuts awarded
It to Mr. Worley Getz, the unlucky men
being Mr. Fred Williams and Mr.
Charles Whitehead. Cherry frappe was
rc-rved during the playiner and at the
conclusion a two-course collation was
served by the hostess with the assist
ance of Mesdnmes 13. A. Morgan. C. A:
Seely and t. T. Denmead and Master
Dwlght Denmead, who had welcomed
the guests at the door. Then came a
clever little game called "bicycle que
ries." made up of nineteen questions,
which it was expected wheelmen and
women should answer. The cards were
printed in red and on the reverse side
were the Initials of the honored guests.
Again two ladles tied for the prize,
which was a prettily-inounted picture.
It was given to Miss Blanchc Denmead
in preference to Miss Lulu Huffaker.
and Mr. Charles Speers received the
gentleman's first prize, a copy of the
rough riders' militury girl. Besides the
guest*'-' honored, those in attendance
from nut of town were Mrs. F. W.
Howe, of Brooklyn. N. Y.: Miss Minnie

Ther# never was a time in the his

was either in the course of construction
or being planned for the immediate fu

of rebuilding. The masonry work will
be put in this fall, ready for the super
structure next spring. This will in
volve an expenditure of $100,000.
From one who has recently been ovei
the road it is ascertained that the com
pany is renewing all of its water tanks,
many of which were in bad repair ani
had to be replaced with new ones. The
new tanks are being built more sub
stantially than the old ones, and are
considerably larger.
Besides this work the company is
putting in a concrete arch and makin,
a heavy fill at the Honey Creek bridge
near Morning Sun reducing the gradi
at Pickering, in order to get in readi
ness for the new bridge at that point,
and is about to begin extensive im
provements in the lowu Junction yardf
near Peoria.
The steel laying, which has been in
progress during the greater part of the
summer, is practically completed, the
finishing touches now being in progres
between this city and Dillon. This give:
the company 70-pound steel practically
from Oskaloosa to Marshalltown. Tin
old iron rail on the Belmond branch ha*
all been taken up and 00-pound steei
from the main track has been laid in its
place. The track is also being ballast
ed with gravel, making the Belmont
branch and its Algona extension t'n
best and most substantial of any of the
company's branch property.

Contra! Takes Cliiirso of
Mr. George S. Batty,
Ore., the new general ""'passenger and
ticket agent of the Iowa Central, whose
appointment was mentioned in these
columns a few days ago, took charge of
his new work Wednesday. Mr. Baltv.
although only 43 years of age. is old in
the railroad business, having started ir
1S72 on the old Great. Western railway,
at Hamilton, Ont.. now the Crand

reer began as a junior clerk In the of
fice of the secretary and treasurer.
From there he went to the Chicago &
Grand Trunk in the accounting depart
ment. having in charge for several
years the ticket accounts of the road.
From there Mr. Battv went to the Min
neapolis & St. Louis road at Minneap
olis, where he remained seven years, or
until he accepted a position as general
freight and passenger agent of the Ma
son City & Fort Dodge road, with
headquarters at Mason city. He did
not remain here long, however—only
until the first of September of that
year, when he took charge of the traffic
of the Wisconsin Central on the Pacific
coast, as general agent, with head
quarters at Portland. He remained
there until the Northern Pacific leased
the Central in the fall of 1SS9. when, in
preference to going to I'uget Sound, or
taking charge of eastern territory, he
decided to go into business for himself,
entering Into the real estate and gen
eral brokerage business, at Portland.,
in which he continued until March. lS»e,
when he was reappointed general agent
of the Wisconsin Central. He resigned
his position a little later, however, ow

interests demanded more of his atten
Mr. Batty Is well acquainted with the
western country, where he has resided
so long, and has quite extensive inter

mining industries.
Mr. Hatty's family consists of a wife
and five sons, whom he will leave on
the coast until next spring, when he
expects to remove them to this city.
To a Times-Republican reporter Mr.
Batty said there would be no changes
made in his department, that Mr. II. X,.
Laird would be retained as chief clerk
and Messrs. C. S. Walters and J. 1?.

•Mr. Batty is a very pleasant gentle
man to meet, courteous and affable,
and he Is considered by Acting General
Manager Tittemore as an excellent
man for the place. The position came
to Mr. Barty unsolicited, and further
than that was not gained through a
personal aquaintance with any of the
officials. His past work in railroad cir-
eles seem to have been his one recom-
mendation, as his appointment was
recommended very highly by some of
the leading railroad men of the coun

The fact that the Central is short on

on the part of a reporter for the T.-R.
this morning, when Acting General
Manager Tittemore was asked if the
company was not soon to have some
new engines. Mr. Tittemore replied that
he was in receipt of a confirmation
from the east that an order had been
given the Baldwin people (or six of

too much so, in fact, for their own
good. Many of them have to make the
entire trip from Peoria to Mason City,
without a lay-over, when ordinarily
they are given a rest .at this point. The,
new engines are for the freight service
and are to be monsters, weighing
149,600 pounds each. Their tank ca
pacity is 3,800 gallons, and their driv

new engines will cost between $12,500
and $13,000 each.

of Property.
The approximate report of the earn
ings of the Iowa Central for the last

of the property. The ratio of earnings
is also the largest of any previous
period, and is at the rate of $2,588,000
per year.
For the week the road's earnings
were $75,f57.92, against $64,159.69, an in

or Absence to Visit Maralialltown.
Mrs. H. H. Gregg is in receipt of an
other letter from her son, Harry Gregg,
of the U. S. S. New Orleans, written at
San Domingo, Sept. 21. The most im
portant feature of the letter, and espe
cially to the Greggs, is the fact that
Harry expects to be granted a few
days' leave of absence as soon as his
vessel reaches New York, and those few
days will be spent with his mother and
sister in this city.
It has been over a year now since Mr.
Gregg left his home to enlist in the na
val service of 1'ncle Sam. ft has been
a longer time than that to the folks at!
home, ami no doubt has seemed longer *[_
to Harry himself. Just how soon the
New Orleans will b" allowed to leave
foreign waters is not known, but at the
time the letter was written Mr. Gregg
says there was a rumor afloat that the
ship would be ordered north as soon as
Hie Dewey celebration was over. The
New York Sun, however, is authority
for the statement that she will remain
in the West Indian waters until spring.
In Mi. Gregg's letter he states that
since last writing he had been given an
opportunity to visit the city of San
Juan, that he had embraced the oppor
tunity to Its fullest extent, and had
seen all the great sights, even down to
the famous bull ring. He was surprised,
he said, in regard to the cleanliness of
the city, and states that San Juan's
street^ are cleaner today than those o!
either New York or Chicago. The city
authorities have a novel way of keeping
their streets clean, however, laborers
are placi to work, with brooms, and
guard -f the native soldiers,
who stand over the men, armed with
their rifles, with bayonets fixed. 1L" a
