Nearly nil the guests wore masks , nnd many of the costunus were fearfully and wonderfully made. They were nil artistic successes , how ever , whether they were Intended to be grace ful or grotesque , whllo the Inherent gallantry that reposes In the traveling man's breast paid as devout homage to black Topsy as to the French housemaids , who would not have known a dusting brush from n refrigerator , but v\ho carried out their parts remarkably well notwithstanding.

Mercer of the United States secret service returned yesterday from a trip through Wisconsin , Minnesota and Mlch- algn In search of a young man who has been causing the postal authorities no end of grief for the past two years by his studied neglect to observe the distinction between his own property and that of the patrons of the postofllce. It had become so common for registered letters to turn up missing that the people In that vicinity had almost been forced to abandon the registry department altogether , regarding a letter as more likely to reach Its destination when sent under an ordinary postage stamp than when It was accompanied by the telltale registry card. The case was put Into Mr. Mercer's hands and $25 In cash was sent over the branch of the Chicago & North western railway running from Wlnona , Minn , , to EIroy , Win. , upon which Leo A Smith , a suspected postal clerk , had charge of the malls. This disappeared like Its predecessors and Mcicer swoopeH down upon Smith. Ho demanded his money , and Smith kindly pulled It out of his pocket and gave It to him , $25 In marked bills. Smith afterward confessed to having robbed the malls of registered letters In a systematic manner for two years past , and In that time ho had stolen i$2GOO , bcfllrtes a lot of valuable articles that had passed through his hands. Theio Is a woman in the case , It seems , upon whom ho has been lavishing his Ill- gotten gains , and 1t was through her aid that he was caught. The capture Is regarded by the United States authorities as one of the most Important that has been made In jears. The Council Bluffs Insurance company's premiums for March are over $8,000 , a gain of $2,224 over March , 1893. Wo have In stock 1,000 hot-bod sash of our own make.

PROHIBITIONISTS PROTEST Scheme to Have Liquors Manufactured in Iowa Sprung in the Senate. WILL NOT CONDEMN THE PRESIDENT Resolution Introduced Denouncing Cleveland for Hit * Veto of the Seigniorage Hill Not Considered unit Will 1'rob- nbly HeSmothered. . ' * DES MOINKS , March 31. ( Special Tele- grain to The Bee. ) Representative Chassell of Plymouth executed a parliamentary manocver this afternoon , which may possibly permit the maiinfacture of spirituous , vinous and malt liquors In this state for legal pur poses. After quietly canvassing among the democrats and those republicans who favored the measure , and holding nearly all of them In thel r seats for the critical moment , Mr. Chassell arose and asked leave to introduce a bill , which , being never objected to , caught the prohibitionists napping. The bill having been read the first time by Its title only the gentlemen from Plymouth asked that It bo read the second time In full and the prohibitionists were amazed and could hardly believe their ears when It was discovered that the bill author ized the manufacture of spirituous , vinous and malt liquors at wholesale rates on the petition of a majority of the voters of the country. Taking advantage of the situa tion It was immediately moved that the bill be engrossed and read the third time on Tuesday. The radical element had somewhat re covered from their sui prise by thin tlmo and Mr. Wyckoff moved to amend by mak ing the time Thursday , the day before adJournment - - Journment , which was lost 10 to 44. The mo tion to engross for final reading prevailed , 44 to 43. 43.PROHIBITIONISTS PROHIBITIONISTS PROTEST. Mr. Chassell said that the local option republican ! ) had been fair vvlth the prohibi tionists , and thought it a mere mater of Justice that a square vote should be taken on his proposition. The motion to take a vote on final passage Tuesday prevailed , when Chassell moved to reconsider the vote and also to lay this motion on the table. The piohlbltlon element was now fully aroused anil protested vigorously against the measure being rushed through without opportunity for amendment or debate , and defeated the- motlon to reconsider by a bare majority. The prohibitionists will caucus on the situ ation and endeavor to form a combine to de feat the bill on final passage , but unless some changes are effected the bill will pass , Besides the forty-four votes cast for It today on subsidiary questions , Chapman , Cooper nnd Dlederlch of Pottawattamlo , Lander and Miller of Lee , who favor the bill , were ab sent. The prohibitionists will hang up all legislation , and If necessary say they will filibuster from Thursday until the end of the session on Friday In order to defeat the measure , Contrary to expectations the Barker reso lution condemning Cleveland for vetoing the Bland seigniorage bill was not taken up In the house. It Is understood that leadIng - Ing democratic members prevailed upon the author to withhold consideration of the measure for tlio present and until a caucus can bo held to either smother the resolution or put It In such form that It will re flect equally upon the republicans who voted against Ita passage. It will proably not bo heard of again. A bill was Introduced In the house by Tavlor , fixing telephone charges at $2.00 per month for residences and $4 00 per month for all other places , nnd 1C cents be tween towns , time limited to live minutes. Mr Haslcton Introduced a bill by request , requiring the board of railroad commis sioners to establish a schedule of uniform rates for nil telegraph , telephone , express and sleeping car companies doing business In tlio state.

"Tlie said commission shall take such ac tion as they may deem proper In connection with the Chlckamauga and national military park commission , and futher , the commission appointed by this act shall report to the Twenty-sixth general assembly of Iowa all their doings , and shall recommend such action as they may deem proper In reference to the erection of monuments and shall further recommend tlie appropriation of such sum as they may think proper for the pur pose of erecting bald monuments. " The original bill In both houses called for an appropriation of $25,000 for monuments and tablets and $2,00 extra far personal ex pensed of tlie commission , but , owing to lack of funds In the state treasury , the larger appropriation was stricken out. It was charged upon the Iloor by Mr Gurley of Decatur and others that the bill was In the Interest of private speculators and comtcmplatcd a wholesale raid on the public treasury In the near future for the purpose of erecting monuments on southern battle grounds. The bill , stripped of borne objectionable features , however , was passed. DIVIDI3D TUB LEGISLATURE. The soldiers nnd sailors monument , for which an appropriation of $ liO,000 ! was lob- bled throug the last legislature by Interested parties In defiance of the protests of a large majority of the soldiers belonging to , the Grand Army , Is giving the general assembly no end of trouble , and If the lobbyists would show up at this session they would meet , with a chilling reception. The historical old capital grounds , which are Just south of the now capltol building , was tlio site urged by the lobby as being an eligible location suit able In every respect for the proposed shaft. However , as soon as the bill passed and they received the coveted appointment their opinions underwent a miraculous change. These grounds already belonged to the htato and would entail no additional expense , which did not suit this high-toned commit tee , but not daring to select another location In direct violation of law they contented themselves with expending as much as l > osslblo for estimates and expenses , and let the matter rest Upon tlio reassembling of the prcbont legislature , the nicinbeis vv ore at once besieged by Interested parties to re peal the law fixing the location and fix a now site. The general assembly obligingly added to the commission some of Its members and sent them out prospecting , and they reported In favor of setting up tlio monument nt tlio ba&o of the capltol hill , directly west of the new state house , where ground would have to bo purchased nt un enormous cost to vtho state and where It would remain an eye sore to the people forever. The senate today confirmed the site of the old capltol , Immediately south of tlie new state house , as the proper location for the soldiers' monument , and Instructed the com missioners to condemn , if necessary , n half block additional ground. The house will likely concur In this action. There Is some talk of appointing a new committee , while a few favor giving up the project entirely and converting the money back Into the general treasurp , where It will be badly needed to meet the liberal np- proprlatlors already made.
