Miners' Convention Drawing Much At tention, and a Large Attendance is Assured—Bottlers' Union Held a Smoker—Other News. [The matter published in this col umn Is furnished by the officers of the Federation of Labor.] From Friday's Daily. Thru a vacancy, caused by the re moval from this state, of President C. L. Brecken, of Muscatine, J. F. Byrne, of this city, becomes president of the Allied Printing Trades association. Mr. Byrne is one of the best known labor workers in the state, and he is at present gen eral organizer of the American Fed eration of Labor for Iowa. He has had much experience in all branches of organized labor, and he is consid ered one of the most conservative men in the state. He is a fluent talk er and a hard worker, and the dura tion of his official ilfe with this organ ization will bring much cerdit to the craft. Mr. Byrne was for two years president of the Iowa State Federa tion of Labor, and it was during his regime that Unionism gained such a firm stand in this state. j'J Miners' Convention. There is still a disposition on the part of some of the newspapers of the state to. settle the scale for mining coal in this district for the miners and the operators before either of their conventions meet separately or jointly. As predicted before no man can state authoritively what the de mand of the--miners will be, in the making of a new scale, previous to their meeting jointly in convention. Any newspaper article setting out the policy to be pursued by the miners jperators is but mere guess work, and nolicy to be pursued by the miners or operators is but mere guess work, and not authentic in any sense of thQ word.' It is not likely that the miners of Iowa after building up such an or ganization, as they have, thru hard work in the past three years, have se lected any missionaries to teach them how.to make a scale, when to call a strike" and otherwise agitate a pol icy of division between themselves and the operators. On the other hand conciliation is the policy of the wisest and b.est members of the state miner's' organization, whom, it is a pleasure to state, are in the majority. It is true that the miners will always stand for a fair day's pay for a fair day's work, and other improved conditions brought about thru unionism. Again, when newspapers speak about miners strik ing, the miners themselves know more about what a strike means than the pencil pushers who are in the habit of penning these lines carelessly and without mature thought. The miners and the operators wiil settle their dif ficulties in their own way, and they have not asked for, nor sought advice from any other source. The miners are a great craft of in dustrious wage earners and they are a living example of the benefits brought about by labor unions. All Ottumwa bids welcome to its delegates to its state convention, Thursday, February 21. The joint committee of the two miners' local unions and the Trades and Lab or assembly are making strenous ef forts to raise money to entertain them royally. The Bottlers' Union. Last Saturday evening the Bottlers' Union met and aft^r the meeting had adjourned, the members indulged In a smoker. Refreshments were serv ed, and short addresses were made by prominent members of the union. Among those who spoke were D. W. •Jones, P. F. Swift, Chas. Chase and William Parker, local organizer for the American Federation of Labor. The occasion was very enjoyable, and will long be remembered by those Xrho participated in it. The Brick Layers. The brick layers of this city are awaiting the action pf their national convention, which is in session in Mil waukee this week, for many Import ant matters, governing the craft, tliru out the country. H. Kephart is rep resenting the local union of this city, and it goes without saying that the union is thoroly represented., Mr. Kephart is a fine specimen of union ism, and a man thoroly informed on all laws' governing the Bricklayers' Union. It is hoped that the convention in its wisdom, will select Mr. Kephart, for some important office, where he can exercise his executive ability, which would be for the general wel fare of the national organization and Some Reasons Why You Should Insist on Having EUREKA HARNESS OIL Unequaled by any other.

The money was ship ped by a Dubuque bank. "My stomach was affected by grip and I could eat nothing but crackers and milk.

Green has recovered from an attack of the grip at Canaseraga, N. Y., by the use of Dr. Miles' Pain Pills. Among the victims of the grip epi demic now so prevalent, Coyle is now recovering at Canton, O., by the use of Dr. Miles' Nervine and Pills. W. E. Nihells, of St. Louis, Mo., who was down with grip, is reported much improved. He used Dr. Miles' Nervine and Pills. The friends of Mrs. L. Denlson will be pleased to learn of her recovery from grip, at her home in Bay City, Mich., thru the use of Dr. Miles' Nerv ine and Pills. Everybody says that J. W. Udy is looking splendid since his recovery from the grip at his home in Des Moines, Iowa. They all know that Dr, Miles' Nervine and Pills was what cured him. Prosecuting Attorney Charles L. De Waele, who has passed the three-score mile stone, had a time with the grip but when seen at his home in Ros common, Mich., the other day, he said Dr. Miles Nervine was what cured him. At nearly three score and ten Mrs Galen Humphrey was fighting against odds when the grip attacked her but she took Dr. Miles' Nervine, and now her neighbors in Wareham, Mass., re mark on how well she is looking. After an illness of five weeks from the grip, Mrs. Harriett Jackson Is again about and looking fine. She be gan taking Dr. Miles' Nervine after the fourth week. Her home is in Bawling Green, Mo» It is Taken Qute Seriously in Wash ington. c* SAY SHAW IS CERTAIN TO ATTEMPT IT Congressmen in Washington" from Iowa Generally Believe That Gov ernor Shaw Will Undoubtedly be a Candidate—Others are ih the Race. Washington, Jan. 25.—Among Iowa men in Washington the report tnat Governor Shaw is in the race for a third nomination is taken quite ser iously. The governor is looked upon as certain to attempt to secure a third term asv the chief executive of the state. One gentleman who is on rath er intimate terms with every Iowa congressman said to the Capital cor respondent today: "Mr. Shaw be lieves that Iowa stands an excellent chance for securing first place on the republican national ticket in 1904. He does not believe that it will be possi ble for Senator Allison to win in the convention.. The senator's chances were best in 1892 and they faded com pletely in 1896, when McKinley cap tured the St. Louis convention. Among the Iowa cohgressmen the belief is al most universal that Governor Shaw regards himself as the logical candi date of the trans-Mississippi region. He realizes, however, that the prefix "ex" to his title would prove a serious drawback to his candidal- Hence his desire to remain at the head of the state government until the nomi nating convention meets. Under the circumstances the report that he is a candidate to succeed himself is receiv ed with general credence here." Govrnor Shaw is not the only repub lican who is laying pipe for the nation al convention in 1904. Senator Fair banks, of Indiana, is putting in a con siderable amount of political lightning conduits. He has secured as his poli tical secretary Mr. J. A. Matthews, who was for many years the Washing ton correspondent of the Chicago News and the Indianapolis News. Mr. Matthews is an excellent writer, who has a wide circle of political friends, and he will doubtless be able to ma terially advance the interests of the tall gentleman from Indiana, who has presidential aspirations sprouting all over him. Every one realizes that vice presl dent-elect, "Teddy" Roosevelt, looks upon himself as the only real candi date. But among the New York dele gation there is a disposition to look upon Governor Odell as a dangerous rival to the rough rider. Governor Odell has started in to govern the state of New York in the interest of the people. If he keeps up the pace which he has set for himself at the start it will be impossible to defeat him for re-election. With the pres tige of two victories in the Empire state behind him, Mr. Roosevelt will cut but a sorry figure as his antagon ist, and if the powers that control the political destinies of New York state decide to send seventy-six delegates— there will be 76 from New York in 1904—pledged to Odell, Roosevelt, Fairbanks and Shaw will all find them selves very- far in the rear when the first flag drops in the first presidential race of the nineteenth century.— Hamilton. BABY IN A BASKET. Council Bluffs People Receive an Ad dition to Their Family. Council Bluffs, Jan. 24.—Mr. and Mrs. J. Waldren, living at 3521 Ave nue A, have an unexpected addition to their family.

As he stooped to pick it up he heard the cry of a baby coming from the basket. Hastening into the house with, the basket, he called his wife and together they proceeded to investigate its con tents. Warmly wrapped in several small blankets, lay a little girl about three weeks old. In the basket also was a small bundle of baby's clothing and a box of condensed milk. There was nothing to indicate where the lit tle waif came from. Mr. and Mrs. Waldren have no children of their own, and decided to keep the,,.lij tl? stranger. FINDS BRIDE IN A POORHOUSE. Wealthy Indiana Bachelor Chooses Helpmeet From an Infirmary. Hartford City, Ind., Jan. 24.—A unique wedding took place at the coun ty infirmary near Bluffton. The groom, Christian Kischner, aged 48 and wealthy, was a bachelor. The bride, Miss B. Barnes, 36 years old, has been an inmate of the county poorhouse for twenty years. A few days ago some of Kischner's friends suggested that he should mar ry, but he replied that all women were mercenary. It was suggested that he get a bride from the infirm ary, and he fell in with the sugges tion. He was introduced to the female InmateB of the infirmary, with the re sult that he fell in love with Miss Barnes, and after a half hour's court ship the wedding day was fixed. Ac cordingly the wedding was solemn ized in the poorhouse, and the pauper Miss Barnes became the wealthy Mrs. Kischner. 0 MORTGAGE FOR MILLI0N8. O Iowa Railroad Pledges Its Equipment for $12,000,000.
