slayer of Father Leo, after conferring

"I did not kill the priest: he fell

"I am a Catholic and had gone to
the church to pray. I did not go there
to receive the sacrament. While I was
kneeling the priest came along and
put the sacrament in rny mouth. It is
against the rules of the Catholic
church to take the host without lirst

RECORDS CAN'T BE IN8PECTED
State Must Rely on Memories of Few
Survivors and Early Settlers—Desire
Names for Roster of Iowa Companies
—Assessment of Bank Stocks Both
Special to Times-Republican.
Des Moines. Feb. 28.—Unless the
early settlers of Iowa and the few
straggling survivors of t)he Mexican
war come to the aid of the state of
Iowa the roster of Mexican soldiers
in tihe volumes soon to be published
by the state will be quite Incomplete.
If the people of Iowa will come to
the uid of the board it may still be
possible to make the volume as com
plete a.s tho the original documents
were at hand.
The Mexican war broke out just at
the time when Iowa was being changed
from a territory to a state and as a
result there are no state documents
to speak of and fiiie government at
Washington has issued an Iron clad
order that the Mexican war records
cannot be 'inspected, giving as an ex
cuse tihat they are fast crumbling and
that it will not do to allow them to be
Cut off from access to the war rec
ords at Washington, Iowa must fall
back on the memory of Its early set
tlers, old newspaper files and wherever
possible to obtain the muster rolls of
the companies. Nearly every state in
the Union has tried to get the war
department at Washington to modify
its order. Iowa is the last and there
is no more show that Iowa will suc
ceed than that the others would, and
the others all failed.
When President Polk called for vol
unteers for the Mexican war he asked
for a regiment of ten companies from
I each state. Iowa responded to the call
-'of Governor James Clarke with thir
teen companies of the state militia. The
companies were accepted by Governor
Clarke, but were never mustered into
the service of the government. Iowa
did, however, have some companies
from Pottawattamie county which
went as a brigade attached to a' regi
ment from another state.
Inasmuch as these thirteen compan
ies enlisted for the war with Mexico
it is desired to place their names in
the roster of Iowa soldiers and an
effort is being made to secure their
names. Some of them have been se
cured. Some of the companies are
now nearly completed, but there are
a number that are not and the effort
is now being made to complete the list.
The roster board provided by t'he last
legislature has employed Mr. Harvey
Reid of Maquoketa to preipare the lists
of these companies. Mr. Reid has de
voted a considerable part of his time
and money to investigating the early
military history of Iowa. He did this
before the state provided for the ros
ter. Since he had already gone over
much of the ground and was familiar
with the difficulties, the state board
employed thim to .prepare the list.
Along with the list of enlistments for
the Mexican war he is preparing the
lists of those who participated in the
early Indian wars of the state. Mr.
Reid is spending his time searching
thru old newspaper files in the hope
of finding mention of these enlist
ments. He is also interviewing early
settlers and wherever he can find a
survivor of the Mexican war 'he in
terviews him for information.
He is desirous of securing the name,
of every survivor of the Mexican war
now residing in the state, and wher
ever any citizen has any information
on these early enlistments for the
Mexican Avar he wants to hear from
The attorney general's office is get
ting inquiries for an opinion as to the
assessment of the capital stock of na
tional banks. The decision of the
United States supreme court last year
in holding that stock of state and sav
ings banks in fowa when invested in
government bonds cannot be taxed
has upset the assessors and the na
tional banks as well. The matter is
now in the state courts on a case
brought by the Des Moines National
What started the whole question is
the provision of the state law which
provides that assessment of the capi
tal stock of state and savings banks
shall be to the bank and not to the
owners or holders of the stock. Some
state and savings banks invest their
capital stock in government bonds.
They held that an assessment of the
stock of the bank when invested in
government bonds was taxation of
government bonds which the national
law prohibits. The suit went thru
the state court and thru the United
States supreme court, and was decid
ed in favor of the banks, hence all
state and savings banks by investing
their capital stock in government
bonds can escape taxation on it.
As soon as the United States su
preme court decided that point the na
tional banks of Iowa claimed they
should escape taxation in the same
way. There is one important differ
ence in the matter, and it .remains
for the courts to decide whether it is
a vital difference or not. In the case
I of national banks Assessment of the
I stock is the stockholder. This
I would be true, too in the case of state
and savings banks but for the state
law exempting the owner and putting
the assessment on the bank. Some
lawyers claim this difference Is a vital
one and that the owner Is assessed on
tlie certificate of slock no matter how
the money lie paid for the stock is In
