REPUBLICAN STATE CONVEN
The Republicans of lowa will meet
iu State Convention at Des Moines on
Wednesday, August 16, and Hon. James
Ilarlan, of Henry, Ex-United States
Senator, will he the temporary chair
man, and Hon. James S. Lawrence, of
Woodbury, recommended for perma
nent chairman.
These selections are simply splendid,
and under the action of that conven
tion the Republican party of lowa will
move to the winning of a great and cer
tain victory at the polls.
—Does the Times believe with Presi
dent Cleveland that the repeal of th
Sherman silver law is a financial neces
sity, and does it favor it?
—According to latest accounts 215
members were elected to the Herman
reichstag last week. Of these 101 are
in favor of the army bill and 114 are
opposed to it. Second ballots are neces
sary in 181 districts and the govern
ment hopes to carry enough of these to
he able to pass the bill.
—Now comes the Washington Post
and declares editorially that “notwith
standing the loud complaints made
against the McKinley law during the
campaign last year, contingencies have
developed which will not permit the
revenue of the government to he radi
cally reduced, and some of the most
vigorous tariff reformers are now' advo
cating conservative action.”
--The June purchase of silver by the
treasury took in 105,000 ounces at 82.2
per ounce- which would make the sil
ver in the dollar worth 63.9. A half
million ounces were offered, but only
the amount taken that is named, and
none will he called lor again until July.
Make coinage free and the river of sil
ver that will How towards the mints
will heat the Des Moines when on a
boom—and bust the countrywide open.
—The Fremont Gazette voices sound
sense when it says: “Bishop Merrill, of
the M. E. church, says there will be a
manifesto issued by the church author
ities, requesting all Methodists to stay
away from the World's Fair entirely.
The good bishop had better let that job
alone ; i leave his people, as well as
to exercise their individual
judgment as to whether it is wrong to
attend the Fair simply because the court
has decided that it may be open on Sun
day.”
—The Chicago Inter Ocean suggests
that the “people who are groaning over
“hard times,” and “the oppressed work
ing millions,” neglect to state the fact
that tlie statistics show' $1,700,000,000
in savings banks in the United States.
That it is mainly the small saving of
the working multitudes is also true, as
every observer knows. Such a fact tells
better the financial condition of the
country than any oratory. That miser
able “robber tariff" doesn’t seem to
have robbed “the man with the little
dinner pail” quite so bad as the free
trade orator declared.
—Theodore Roosevelt gave some ex
c lllent advice to the graduate of the
Northwestern University commence
ment day. 11 e said, among other things
“The American citizen who won t take
part in the primaries, the caucuses and
conventions, who shrinks from the
rough, hard work of politics because it
jars on the nerves and is distasteful to
him, and because he does not like to be
jostled and knocked about by boss and
henchmen, should be as much ashamed
of himself as a soldier would be if he
shrank from the toil and danger of a
campaign and objected to being knock
ed about by the enemy. It is the good
man who lights for the right, who ulti
mately wins the victories of civiliza
tion.’
Ralph Robinson, the veteran editor
of the Newton Journal, has formulated
a plank for the republican platform by
which to test thesentimentof the party
on the question of the repeal or reten
sion of the prohibitory law, which he
thinks should suit all republicans. It
is as follows.
Resolved, That the republican party
is now and always has been a law-abid
ing party; that it believes in faithfully
obeying the will of tlje people when
such has been definitely expressed; that
lirmly holding to these tenets.it believes
in the maintenance of all laws so long
as they remain on the statute books.
The prohibitory law received an en
dorsement of a majority of 30,000 of our
people ten years ago, since which time
by the untiring and persistent efforts
of the democratic party to nullify its
provisions, and to create an opposition
to its workings, that party claims there
is a majority of our people who desire
its repeal; therefore, in order to test
this question and definitely settle it, we
are in favor of printing on all tickets
at the coming election the following
proposition: “Shall the prohibitory
law of lowa be repealed ithose fav
oring such proposition to vote “Yes”
and those opposed “No”—and the ver
dict of the people so obtained shall gov
ern the action of the next general as
sembly on the subject.
Editor B. F. Tilltnghast, of the Dav
enport Democrat, writes home from the
World’s Fair:
At any of the entrance gates yon pay
50 cents for an adult and 25 cents for
children. This gives the freedom of
the grounds, access to the thirteen im
mense national buildings, all the state
buildings and foreign booths, and much
more. It entitles you to a seat, if you
claim it before your competitors, at the
band concerts; it includes the fireworks
and the illumination by night; the un
restricted range of the administ ration
building,and all theadvice and informa
tion you want from the Columbian
guides and guards. For this half dol
lar fee you get in return more than a
thousand per cent daily on your invest
ment. The man who works in a saw
mill at 91.50 a day and has dependent
upon him a family can not afford to
forego this lifetime opportunity. lie
can better itveou coarser food,dispense
with his beer and cigar, or walk to and
from work where he now rides. I want
right here in open candor and down
right earnestness to urge every young
man and woman who has any ambition
in life to come to the World’s Fair.
Make some sacrifice if you must. De
prive yourself of trifling amusements
at home. Go without a new hat. Let
the clothes you wear become more
tli read bare than is your wont If you
have not bad the advantage of schools
and books, the greater the reason why
you should make amends for past neg
led or misfortune. The trip here for a
few days need not be expensive.

OSKALOOSA, MAHASKA COUNTY, IOWA, THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 1893.
IOWA CROPS.
The Offlcal Report Say They are
Des Moinfs, June 19.—The crop
a ason of 1893 opened under favorable
conditions for plowingand seeding, and
during the first half of April an unusual
amount of farm work was done, with
the soil in excellent tilth. The last half
of April and firsthalf of May were un
usually cool and wet, retarding all farm
operations in the larger part of the state.
Since about the middle of May the
season has been fairly good and the
time has been well improved. The June
reports relative to the acreage and con
dition of crops, live stock, etc., give the
following results:
Winter wheat—This crop is now raised
in small areas in forty-four counties.
The reports show an increase of 2 l a per
cent in the acreage, as compared with
last year. The condition of the crop is
rated at 87 per cent.
IOWA:
Spring wheat—There is an average
reduction of 6 per cent in the acreage of
spring wheat, compared with 1892. Its
condition is placed at 96 per cent. On
the basis of the estimated acreage last
ye r the total yield of spring and winter
wheat in low a will not exceed 7,000,000
bushels.
Corn—The reports of correspondents
show an in*:.ease in the acreage planted
i** ~~ - jvery county except two. The
increase for the state is 10 per
mmi compared with last year. The
total acreage is not yet officially esti
mated from the returns of township as
sessors, but it will probably not excede
6,500,000 acres. The condition of the
crop is 98 per cent, the stand and color
being generally good.
Oats—Seventy-eight counties report
an increase iu the acreage of oats, and
twenty-one report a decrease, compared
with last year. The average for the state
gives an increase of 5 per cent in the
area sown, and the average condition is
96 per cent.
Rye—Decrease iu acreage, 7 per cent;
condition, 93 per cent.
Harley—lncrease, 1 per cent; condi
tion, 95 per cent. This cereal is raised
in about three-fourths of thej counties
of the state and the total acreage is
small.
Flax—There appears to be an average
decrease of 12 per cent in the area of
this crop compared with 1892. The con
dition is 94 per cent.
Timothy—An increase of 1 % percent
is reported in acreage; condition, 98 per
cent.
Clover—The report shows a decrease
of per cent in the area sown in clover
this season. The condition is 95 per
cent. Clover meadow's were generally
killed out or injured by the severe win
ter, which will materially reduce the
crop of clover seed this year.
Millet—A decrease of 2 per cent in
the acreage of this crop is reported
Condition, 9f> per cent.
Broom corn—This crop is raised in
small quantities in about one fourth of
the state. Reports show a decrease of 5
per cent in the acreage planted. Con
dition, 91 per cent.
Sorghum—Decrease ,3 per cent; con
dition, 93 per cent.
Irish potatoes Increased acreage
per cent, compared with last year. Con
dition of crop, lUI per cent.
Sweet potatoes—Acreage same as
last y ar; condition, -jo per cent.
Grass--Pastures, 99 per cent; mead
ows, 98 per cent. The hay crop will be
heavy.
Spring Fig Crop—Reports from near
ly every county snow a heavy loss of
spring pigs from the effects of cool
weather and other causes. The average
is 72 per cent, or a loss cf 28 per cent
of the crop.
Live Stock Condition—Cattle, 97;
sheep 97; hogs, 95; horses, 100; foals,Bß.
The condition of soil compared with
1892, 129 per cent. The latest frost re
ported was June 1, but it was not dam
aging. The majority of correspondents
report the season from eight to ten
days early compared w ith last year.
The past seven rare June days have
pushed all crops rapidly forward. The
daily mean temperature was above the
normal, and the sunshine was in excess
of the average. The amount of rain
fall was light, except in a few localities
which report excessive moisture.
Corn has made wonderful growth;
the soil is generally in good tilth, and
the second cultivation is in progress.
If the season continues favorable lowa
will celebrate the Columbian year by
exceeding its former high record as a
corn-producing State.
(>ats and other small grain crops have
made good progress. In some locali
tes a rank growth is reported. The
season has been exceptionally favorable
for pastures and meadows, and the hay
crop will be heavy where the grass roots
were not winter killed or injured by
insects, Small fruit is abundant. The
apple crop will be very light.
ACREAGE AND CONDITION OF CROPS.
The June reports of the crop corres
pondents of the Bureau have been tab
ulated, showing the following results.
The acreage i.-> compared with last year,
and the condition with the normal or
standard vitality of the crop or stock.
Ague age.—Winter wheat, 2% per

crease. Flax, 12 per ceut decrease.
Timothy, 1 % per cent increase. Clover,
% per cent decrease. Millet, 2 per cent
decrease. Broom corn, 5 per cent de
crease. Sorghum, 3 per cent decrease.
Irish potatoes, 5J4 per cent increase.
Sweet potatoes same as last year.

101; sweet potatoes, 95; pastures, 99;
spring pig crop, 72; cattle, 97; sheep,
97; hogs,9s; horses, 100; foals, 88. Con
dition of soil compared with 1892, 129.
The majority of correspondents report
the season 8 to 10 days earlier than last
year.
Wluit Shall We l)rink?
When the rays of old Sol are boiling
down at a ninety degree rate, the air
like the breath of a furnace and every
thing hot, dry and dusty, the natural
desire of the average human is to drink.
But what to drink ? there’s the question.
The serious effect of an over in
dulgence in ice water is well known.
The thousand and one cheap gassy
beverages are known to be more or less
injurious to the health, while the min
eral w aters of known purity and health
fulness are a luxury beyond the reach
of but few. What shall we drink?
A beverage to meet the requirements,
must, first of ail, be absolutely pure and
non-alcoholic. It should possess a
medicinal element to counteract the
effects of the heat and keep the blood
pure and the stomach healthful. In
order to be palpatable and refreshing,
it should be sparkling and effervescent.
Last but not least, it must be economical
and within the reach of all. A bever
age that lully meets all of the above re
quirements and one that is entitled to
more than passing mention is Hires’
Rootbeer, manufactured by the (’has.
K. Hires Co., of l'hiladelphia. This
preparation has been analyzed by the
riigheßt authorities and pronounced by
them to be free from any deleterious
substance and absolutely non-alcoholic;
while all physicians acknowledge its
health giving qualities. It has a de
licious, appetizing flavor, is full of snap,
sparkle and effervescence, and 1b with
out a j>eer as a refreshment.
A package, costing 25 cents at the
grocer’s or druggist’s, will make live
gallons of this great temperance drink.
Truly it answers the question—what
shall be drink? There are many sub
stitutes and imitations of Hires’ Root
beer offered for sale which should be
carefully avoided. d&4swl
Do It.—Clean up the alleys and abate
all nuisances in the shape of stagnant
water ponds. Remember that an ounce
of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Avert the possibility of an epidemic by
avoiding the causes which lead up to it.
Keep everything in and about your
premises clean.
Know’s llow*.—Dr. Garfield, of Al
gona, is making preparations for a bi
cycle trip to the World’s Fair. The
doctor ii over 76 years old, aud has a
reputation as the oldest as well as the
most enthusiastic wheelman in lowa.

Miss Borden (Is Acquitted of the
Charge of Murder.
The Verdict of the Jury Received in
the Crowded Courtroom with
Ringing Cheers.
New Bedford, Mass., June 2.2—Liz
zie Borden was acquitted of the charge
of murder Tuesday afternoon.
The stately justices looked straight
ahead at the bare walls during the tre
mendous excitement, which lasted fully
a minute.
At the opening of court there were as
many people in the room as at any time
during the session. Miss Borden en-
tered the room at 8:55. Ex-Gov. Rob
inson took a seat beside her and the
two engaged in conversation until court
opened at 9 o’clock. The jury was
polled and the district attorney con
cluded his argument.
The chief justice then addressed Miss
Borden by name, telling her that she
now hail a voiee and could say to the
jury what she choose to say. She arose,
somewhat agitated, and said to the
jury: “I am innocent, but 1 will leave
my case in your hands and in the hands
of my counsel.”
Judge Dewey then charged the jury.
At the conclusion of the charge, at 3:15,
the attorneys consulted a few moments.
The jury was allowed to retire and
counsel agreed upon what exhibits
were to be put in the case, after which
they were brought in again, the oath
administered by the clerk of the court
and the jury took the case.
It was just 4:30 o’clock when the
spectators, who had kept their seats
patiently during the retirement of the
jury, noticed a movement indicating
their return. A moment later the
twelve men filed into their seats and
were polled.
Miss Borden was asked to stand up,
and the foreman was asked to return
the verdict, which he announced: “Not
guilt).”
Then all the dignity and decorum ol
the court room vanished. A cheer went
up which might have been hear half a
mile away through the open windows,
and there was no attempt to check it.
Miss Borden’s head went down upon
the rail in front of her and tears came
where they had refused to come for
many a long day as she heard the
sweetest words ever poured into her
willing ears. Mr. Jennings was almost
crying and his voice broke as he put
his hand out to Mr. Adams, who sat
next to him, and said:
‘‘Thank God,” while Mr. Adams re
turned the pressure of the hand and
seemed incapable of speech.
Gov. Robinson turned to the rapidly
dissolving jury as they filed out of their
seats and gleamed on them with a
fatherly interest in his kindly eye and
stood up as Mr. Knowlton and Mr.
Moody came over to shake hands with
the counsel for the defense.
As soon as possible the room was
cleared, although it was a hard task
since everybody warned to shake hands
with Miss Borden. When the specta
tors had finally pone she was taken to
the room of the justices and allowed to
recover her composure with only the
eyes of friends upon her and the caress
of devoted admirers. At the expiration
of an hour she was placed in a carriage
and driven to the station, w here she
took the train for Fall River.
Fall River, Mass., June 22. —Lizzie
Borden returned to her home Wednes
day in company with her sister Emma.
A domestic in the house said the
two girls broke down when they
entered their old home. Lizzie spent
a pleasant night at the Holmes
residence and was very cheerful at
breakfast. She declined to be inter
viewed. Her mail to-day is enormous,
congratulations being showered on her
from all points. The temper of the peo
ple has been changed greatly by the
verdict, for which there is now general
respect.
Chicago, June 24.—The Methodists
have decided not to withdraw their
world’s fair exhibit on account of Sun
day opening, but it will be covered up
on the Sabbath. The church com
mittee adopted resolutions in which
they declare that the act of the direc
tory in turning aside from keeping its
pledge of honor to the congress and
people of the United States will be
conspicuous in the future as an act of
perfidy beclouding the business in
tegrity of the citizens of Chicago which
years will not remove.
Duluth, Minn., June 24. —The latest
news from Virginia is of rather a start
ling character. It is reportel that three

THE GOOD OLD SONGS.
A Hundred Thousand Voices Will Blend
in Patriotic Harmony at Jackson Park
on Independence Day.
Chicago, June 26. —Patriotic songs by
a choir of 100,000 voices is to be one of,
the features of the Fourth of July cele
bration at the fair. The singing is to
be under the direction of Silas G. Pratt.
Trained choirs of 2,000 or 3,000 singers
will be placed at the four sides
of the grand court and so di
rected as to sing in unison the
following familiar selections, the entire
populace joining with them, so as to
constitute a vast chorus of at least 100,-
000 singers. Each separate section will
have a leader and be supported by a
large band of musicians, all being con
nected by means of electricity, so that
Mr. Pratt may indicate the exact time
to all alike:
1. The doxology—with a salute of cannons to
punctuate each sentence. Special ceremonies
of the national eolors.
2. “The Star Spangled Banner," sung by the
populace in unison, with the waving of flags on
all buildings and the throng of people present
3. “Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean.”
4. “America.”
At the conclusion of the ringing of
the liberty bell the doxolopy will be
repeated and the new patriotic hymn,
“Love and Liberty,” by Mr. Pratt, will
be sung, also patriotic melodies, such as
“Hail Columbia,” “Yankee Doodle,”
“Battle Cry of Freedom,” “Dixie
Land,” “Marching Through Georgia.”
For the evening it is proposed to invite
specially drilled choirs to sing upon the
lagoon or grand court songs familiar to
American folk.

WOE IN ENGLAND.
Universal Grief Over the Loss of
the Victoria and Grew.
Admiral Tryon Died Aboard Ship
After Being Picked Up —Details
Not Yet at Hand.
GRIEF IN GREAT BRITAIN.
London, June 26.—A dispatch from
Malta says that the Victoria was cut in
two aft of the barbette. Most of those
who lost their lives were drowned by
being drawn under the water by the
suction. Vice Admiral Sir George Tr
yon was picked up shortly after the
vessel went down and carried on board
the battleship Edinburg, where he
died from exhaustion shortly after
terward. The body is being brought to
Malta.
The Nation Mourns.
It would be hard to describe the feel -
ing that prevails everywhere in the
kingdom in regard to the calamity that
has befallen the country through the
loss of the battleship Victoria off
Tripoli, Syria, and the drown
ing of so many of her officers
and crew. Sorrow for the dead and
sympathy for the relatives and friends
of those who went down with the ship
is widespread. In some quarters in
dignation is expressed that such an
accident should occur, but so far
VICE ADMIRAL TRYON
as known there is no foundation
for this feeling. The lack of de
tails, caused by the remoteness
of the scene of the disaster, al
lows of no expression of definite
opinion, and fuller reports of the acci
dent are eagerly awaited. It is not be
lieved that a full story of the sad affair
can be obtained until the arrival at
Malta of the Camperdown, which ran
into the Victoria, or some other vessel
belonging to the British Mediterranean
squadron conveying survivors from the
Victoria.
Eager for New*.
A special staff of officials was kept
on duty all night at the admiralty office
at Whitehall for the purpose of receiv
ing any official dispatches that might
arrive. The only information received,
however, was the names of those who
had been saved, and that only at 6:30 a.
m. In the meantime an immense
crowd gathered about the admir
alty, eager to grasp any scrap of in
formation. In the crowd were many
sad-faced women and children and
young girls whose husbands, fathers, or
sweethearts were members of the ill
fated crew. Hundreds of persons living
in the provinces who had relatives or
friends on board the Victoria could not
wait at home for the receipt of
further details of the disaster. As soon
as they heard of the foundering of the
ship they took trains for London in the
belief that at the admiralty of
fice they would soon learn wheth
er their loved ones had escaped
or gone down with the ship on which
they seived. Many of these stood
H. M. 8. VICTORIA.
silently throughout the night, their
drawn faces and despondent attitudes
showing the great mental strain they
were undergoing. It was a sad scene
and one that will not readily be forgotr
ten by those who witnessed it.
Will Not Try to Recover Bodies.
It is stated that no attempt will be
made to recover the bodies of those
who went down in the Victoria. The
vessel lies in 480 feet of water, and it
would be an almost impossible task to
recover the deatl. It is probable that
in the course of a very few
days a number of the bodies will float
out from the hull, and all these will be
watched for and given burial on land.
The lord mayor has started a relief
fund for those who lost their support
ers. Queen Victoria donated £IOO and
large subscriptions are being received.
Scene of the Disaster.
The scene of the disaster was of!
Tripoli, a town on the coast of Syria, a
short distance north of Bevrcmt anJ
not, as many suppose, near the Tripoli
on the north coast of Africa.
The injured Camperdown has a dis
tance of 1,100 miles to go to Malta, and
is not likely to reach there for four or
five days.
The afternoon papers apparently were
paralyzed by this greatest naval dis
aster of the last quarter of a century.
No single paper has a complete ac
count. The chances are no really
definite account of the disaster save the

A HORRIBLE FATE.
Said to Have Overtaken an Ohio
Farmer’s Wife.
She Stirs Up a Den of Venomous
Serpents and Dies in Great
Agony from Their Bites
TERRIBLE IF TRI E
Rome, 0., June 26. —Mrs. Richard
Smith, wife of a young farmer who re
sides nea here, was buried Friday.
Wednesday last she went to the field
where her husband and employes were
replanting corn that came up badly.
While the men were at work Mrs.
Smith wandered to one side of the
field, where there was a thicket of
wild raspberries. While picking the
berries she stood upon a small
pile of rocks that had l>een picked
up from the field and thrown loosely
into the bushes. When she finally
started to step down she dislodged the
topmost stone, which rolled noisily
down. Instantly the spot swarmed
with furious serpent o , that hissed and
writhed about the wretched woman
like so manj’ demons. The sight was
so terrible that Mrs. Smith stood as if
rooted to the spot while the venomous
creatures twisted about her limbs
and glided over her person, strik
ing and biting her furiously. At last
fear gave way and she screamed for
help. The men came to her rescue and
were nearly overcome by the sight.
The wretched victim was now fighting
with all her strength. She grappled the
writhing things and attempted to pull
them away. Acting on the directions
of her friends she stumbled to the open
field where the men could assist he.*,
and in a few minutes seven
teen copperheads and four rattle
snakes had been killed. Several
of them had followed her from
the stone pile, every action indicating
their intense hatred. As stntn as pos
sible Mrs. Smith was taken toller home
and assistance summoned, but there
was not even a chance of saving her
life. Her l»ody became swollen to an
enormous degree and the skin took on
hideous colors. She had, been bitten a
I dozen times in the face and her features
: became one mass of bloat, green and
black. Sight fled and speech left her.
■ The pain soon drove her into delirium,
and in the most horrible agony life
passed away.
