A. Burnap is Chosen President— Portrait of Gen. Hatch Pre sented to Association. Banquet at Noon, With Toasts Rousing Campfire Held Wednes day Night at the Odeon. The Second Iowa Cavalry Associa tion, which has been holding it? reunion in this city, adjourned today after com pleting its business and enjoying- the so cial functions provided by the local commitee. At the business session held this fore noon Clear Lake was selected as the place for holding: the next reunion. Wst Liberty, Port Dodge and Maquo keta had extended an invitation for the reunion, but the committee selected to decide on a place believed that variety would be lent to the reunion by meet ing at this popular resort one year. The date of the meeting was changed to the first Wednesday and Thursday in Sep tember, as the hotels are usually closed there in October. Clear Lake also captured the presi dency of the association. Mr. Vf. A. Burnap being elected to that position. Mr. H. J. Bennett, of Des Moines, was chosen secretary. Col. C. C. Horton, of Marshalltown, Col. Henry Sudlow, of Muscatine, and Capt. W. S. Belden, of Sioux City, were chosen as the execu tive committee. During the morning Col. Horton, on behalf of Mr. Ed Jones, now deceased, presented to the association an excel lent portrait of Gen. Hatch, one of the former popular commanders of the reg iment. It was Mr. .Tones' request be fore he died that his family procure the portrait and present it to the associa tion in his name. A committee consist ing of Capt. tloldc-n, Thomas Anderson and Col. Lawrence was instructed to express to the family the association's appreciation of the gift. A vote of thanks was unanimously extended to the outgoing otiicers—Col. J. YV. Lawrence, president Capt. J. L. 1-1'iliert, vice president, and Justus Canlield, socretaiy. XOOX-DAY" BA NQT'ET. At noon the visitors formed b.v com panies and marched to the Odd Fel lows' banquet hall, where the members of the W. C. of this city served a banquet. A long time was spent at the. tables, and after the feasting toasts were called for and responded to.

The campfire held at the Odeon Wednesday night was one of the mos* enjoyable features of the gathering, as campflres always are. There was but one regret on the part of the veterans of the Second Iowa and the friends and citizens who had assembled, and that was the unavoidable absence of Col. "W. P. Hepburn, who is 111 at his home in Clarinda. But Col. Egbert) Col. Horton and others were there who can talk ann tell stories. The Odeon was almost filled, many ladies adding their presence to the oc casion. The popular Albion Glee Club, composed of Messrs. F. D. Dennis, P. P. Arney, C. S. Bosworth and YV. H. Wallace, furnished the music during the evening, their numbers being in terspersed with the addresses. They sang such timely selections as "Colum bia's G. A. K.," "The Roll Call," etc. President J. W. Lawrence presided at the campfire. After two numbers bj the quartet and prayc* by Rev. C. P. Boardman, Mayor Frank G. Pierce was introduced to welcome the veterans of the Second. His address was timely and to the point. He referred to the Second Iowa as a regiment of cavalry born on the prairies of agricultural Iowa and one that wrote history. Af ter the close of the war the survivors came back to the walks of peace and gained other victories—it was a light ing regiment in war and a business regiment in peace. Mayor Pierce ex pressed the opinion that the old sol dier, in the meetings of the blue and the gray, had done more to bridge the chasm between the north andsouth than any one else. He was glad to welcomt men who had traveled hundreds and thousands of miles to be in the city at this meeting, and that if the question was left to the people of Marshalltown they would say the Second Iowa caval ry was more welcome to their hospi tality than any organization gathered here in years. Col. Lawrence, as president of the as sociation, responded. Ho said he was placed two years ago on the committee to select the next place of meeting, atfd had favored Marshalltown because lit know some of the people who lived here and could guarantee his comrades a hearty and cheerful welcome. President Lawrence referred feelingly to the ties that bind the members of the regiment together, and which make the survivors feel welcome wherever they go, but they nevertheless appreciated the assurances of welcome on every side in Marshall town. Miss Lilly, daughter of Ben Lilly, of Muscatine, who is a well-known mem ber of the regiment, was pressed Into service at the campfire, her accomplish ments as a reader being well known. Miss Lilly gave a reading the story of which was woven about an incident of the civil war, and responded with "The Charge at Farmington," in which was •elated the thrilling charge of the Sec ond against a battery twenty-four uns and li,000 rebel infantrymen, madc to hold the rebels at bay while Gen. I'aine's division retreat'1 across a wamp beyond which they had been hemmed in. The words were written by Ellis Parker Butler, a Muscatine boy, and the selection is a favorite with the Second, as that was one of the proudest achievements of the war. Col. Henry 1'gbert, of Davenport, was introduced, but did not attempt to make an address, as lie has been In poor health for several months past. He ex tended his greetings to the boys and ex pressed his happiness to be privileged to again look into their faces. An incident not on the program oc curred. when Col. O. Horton and Comrade Edward Stafford, of Nichols, were called to the stage. The formci ivas surprised, while the lattor's face beamed with pleasure because he knew what was coining. Presi dent Lawrence.'. on behalf of Mr. Stafford, presented Col. Horton wl*h a handsome gold-headed cane, appropriately engraved. The recipient, after recovering from his surprise, saio the cane came from one of the bravest boys of the Second, and there was not a truer man than Ed Stafford. Col. Horton paid a tribute to the Second as in organization and said it was the proudest thought of his Uf« to recall that he had had the privilege of com manding it. He said there were no ties outside of his family ties that are dearer than those of the Second Iowa cavalry. Col. Horton told several stor e's, referred to the faithfulness of the negroes to the federal cause and regret ted that some, of the later generation of colored people were not as desirable citizens as were the slaves. Col. Welcome Mowery,- of Tama, at present a member of the Iowa railway commission, happened to be in the city and was in attendance at the campfire. While he was not a member of the Second, he served with a regiment for a time brigaded with that regiment— the Seventh Kansas "Jayhawkers." He said he had been anxious for thirty seven years to attend a reunion of the Second, but was afraid he would in trude. In a humorous way he said that while -the Second had many members who had gained national prominence, the Seventh Kansas also had a few celebrities. "Buffalo Kill" was captain of one of the companies. Susan B. Anthony had two brothers in the regi ment, and like Susan, both were bach elors. John Brown, Jr., was an officer of the regiment. Speaking in a more serious vein, Col. Mowery referred to the attempt to capture Coff.-yville, and how he had been impressed with the volley firing of some command. ITntil he attended this eamplire he never knew who it was. but was happy to learn that it was the Second Iowa cav alry and that Col. Henry Kgbert was the one who commanded the volleys te be fired. The comrades called on Miss Lilly again, and she gave a eormc. theater scene. The veterans demanded that their former comrade. Gen. B. A. Beeson. talk to them, and Mr. Beeson related several enlivening anecdotes. IU called attention to the fact that, the day was the thirty-seventh anniversary of the battle of Corinth, in which the Sec ond took part, and his description of that battle was vivid. Gen. Beeson was on staff duty and had an excellent opportunity to view the operations. In closing he said that he hoped such strife as the civil war would never again be enacted, but if it became necessary he hoped that Old Glory would never be hauled down. "Bugler Tommy" Anderson, who is now editor of the Indianola Herald, was ordered into the speaking column by his comrades and entertained them for some time. He spoke of the first reunion of the regiment held in this city fourteen years ago, and how at that time he did not believe he would ever wear affectionately the picture of Gen. Elliott, which adorns the souvenir badges this year. Elliott was the regi ment's first colonel, and because An derson blew a call in front of his tent without his jacket on he was punished by being compelled to walk around a tree for nine consecutive hours. This was severe and Mr. Anderson harbored 111 feelings for years afterward, but ills relations with Gen. Elliott In later years caused him to change his opinion of the man. After another selection by the glee club the campfire was brought to a close. The Odeon was appropriately decorated with flags and banners con taining the names of important engage ments in which the regiment partici pated and with likenesses of well known army leaders. REUNION NOTES. One of the visitors remarked that the Second Iowa survivors seemed to feel more at home In this city than at any other place, this because Marshall county finished one of the best com panies and several officers and men who became prominent in the regi ment. Mr. A1 M. Adams, editor of the Hum boldt Independent, arrived last night, business having detained him at home. Col. Lawrence makes an .excellent presiding officer, and the "boys" all love him. AERONAUT FALLS TO DEATH. Marzn Townsond Killed at the Circus Grounds. Des Moines, Oct. f.—Prof. Marza Townsend, the aeronaut who was en gaged to make the ascents and para chute leaps from the circus grounds each day this week, fell from his bal loon yesterday at 5:10 o'clock, struck on his head and died instantly. A com bination of circumstances surroundinjl the affair makes it look as though-po one person or Condition was responsible for the death, but that it was purely accidental. A coroner's jury, composed of B. B. Morris, A. L. Lawrence ant] Charles Ferstin was sworn in last eve ning and will hear the evidence this af ternoon at 2 o'clock. Townsend's act was scheduled to fol low the circus each day, and Tuesday it was performed in a very creditable and successful manner, but not as ad vertised. He was down on the pro gram to be shot out of a cannon, sail through the air, and descend with a parachute. He said the tin cannot} was too heavy for his balloon to carry, so went up without it and made the ordi nary parachute descent. Yesterday the cannon was attached and the balloon started up. At an elevation of a little over 200 feet he was given the signal to drop. The balloon had began to de scend. He left it at about U00 feet. The parachute never opened, but with him crashed to the ground. Townsend struck on his head, crushing his skuli and breaking his neck. Townsend's assistants were a man named LaGrange, of Grinnell, who has been with him two or three years, and Eddie Drowns, of Des Moines, who has. been with hitn about the same time. The balloon rose to a little over ^00 feet and started down. Fearing for his em ployer's safety. Drowns gave the signal for him to drop. lie did so, with the re sults stated. He lay in the tin cannon and was unable to see the ground, ar.d did not know how high he was. It had been previously arranged that Drowns should fire a shot with a revolver when ihe correct altitude was reached. This is considered at the least iiOO feet. It was stated yesterday by several who were on the grounds that the balloon was old and not able to carry the weight, and also that Townsend had trouble getting out of the cannon, and that the parachute caught on the edge. A tear in the parachute that looks as though it may have been Inflicted by the edge of the tin cannon makes this seem probable. Townsend is nominally a resident ot Pecorah, Iowa, but for the past ten years lias been in the balloon business, making ascents in nearly all parts of the country. His mother is living ir( Decorali at present, having married a see.ond time a man named Lee. Town send also leaves a brother^ who lives in Deeorah. An estimation of how lightly men of Townsend's profession hold life is seen in the agreement for compensation made by the Seni Oin Sed committee. By its provisions Townsend received $90, out of which he had to pay his two assistants, keep repairs on machinery, take his life in his hand every day, and figure profits. The Grinnell News.

Chicago, Oct. 5.—Lyon's estimated re ceipts for today are: Wheat, 115 cars corn, G50 cars: oats, 230 curs, hog esti mates, 32,000 head. Weare was offering October' wheat yesterday at 2 cents under December, the widest discount so far. That shows a better carrying charge than when the .September a month ago was 2% cents under the December. The discount was the best possible proof ot the lack of hipping demand here for wheat. Ocean freight rates have had a sharp advance as a result of the sudden char tering of so much tonnage by the Brit ish government for its South African needs. Rates from the Atlantic ports to Liverpool on grain within ten days have advanced from 5 cents a bushel to S cents, or CO per cent. The English gov ernment took two steamers at Montreal yesterday. The effect of this sharp ad vance in ocean tonnage has been to check new grain business for export. It has made business very easy for such exporters as nad' the room engaged in advance, and who could shade the new rates in order to close business. It also of course made a handsome profit for such shippers who were fortunate enough to have a large amount of ton nage chartered at the low rate. It Is quite generally assumed that the old reserve of corn is pretty 'well cleaned up. Some corn handlers say the old corn is better used up than It has been within five years. This is the reli ance of the bull party in this grain. The argument is that while the new crop is a liberal one the old reserve is a small one and the aggregate of reserve and crop smaller than for several years p^st. There ave some corn specialists who are bullish on the old crop futures, up for instance for 'December, without being particularly bullish on the new crop future but the popular view is' getting lo be that corn on the breaks either for the old or now futures is not likely to give anybody a serious hurt. .Market*.
