DKS MOIMES , .Nov. 5 ( Special. ) Chair man Hancock of the republican state central committee received word from the War de partment late this afternoon that the Fiftieth Iowa would bo given from one to three days' furlough In which to go home and vet . This action on the part of the War de partment Is very gratifying to Chairman Hancock and the news that they are not to bo disenfranchised will be rYcelved by the volunteer soldiers with the greatest of pleas ure. ure.When When it was announced that the chair , man of the etate central committee had undertaken the tank of securing this con cession from the authorities at Washington there were many to predict that It would result in failure. The military authorities here expressed the belief that the depart- ' roent could not be led to change Ita pluns and that nil efforts In that direction would be but time nnd labor wasted. All tuli was discouraging , but Chairman Hancock kept right on , bringing to bear upon the War department every argument which appeared to possess the Icf.st potency for good. He knew that the boys of the Fiftieth desired to cast their ballots and saw no good reason why they should not be permitted to do FO Ills persistency finally won the day ami , again was It demonstrated that the rule ! ) ' nnd regulations of the War department arc not so Inllcxlble that they cannot bo made to bend when there Is any reasonable groundti for the request made and when the matter Is presented In n proper manner. It Is certainly a victory for the state central committee , for the odds were against the success of the effort. 1 Non-d troolt O'niidired , Tom McQulgen , a noted all-around crook , was captured by the police lust evening In tlin vicinity of Ninth street and Capitol nve- nuo and locked ut > In the city jail as n sus picious character.
