BeN.i EDWARDS, Chairman. Debe and his immediate' associates have all been indicted by the federal grand jury and placed under $10,000 bonds. The extreme heat during the paet week has bad a rather quieting effect upon the official aspirants before tbe county convention. President Cleveland . had no time to pettifog with such men as Governor Altgeld when life and property were at tbe mercy of tbe mob. President Cleveland's acton in sending tbe United States soldiers to Chicago was unanimously indorsed by the senate without a division. The evil effects of tbe great strike to railway (raffle are about at an end. The companies are again running trains and •re receiving all kinds of freigbt. A "sympathetic" strike is the most un- just'and unreasonable of anything yet heard of. What the strikers who were forced to go out most need is bread, not sympathy. Because THE HENTINEL bad a few good words for Judge Paine the Herald growp nervous and save THE SBNTINUL is trying to disorganize tbe Republican party. Ton badI Congressman J. P. Dolliver was re- nominated Wednesday at Webster City for tbe fourth term. In tbe event ot bib election tbe tenth district will be misrepresented for two years more. President Cleveland demonstrated tbe fact that so long as be fills the executive ohair law, and order will be sustained if it requires tbe full strength of tbe government to enforce hie orders. Tbe workiugmeu m' this country who refused to out beoauBu Boverueigu ordered a strike, demonstrated tbe fuot that they are not aa big foola as Grand Master Sovereign took them to be. Qeo. M. Pullman w tbe most thoroughly despised muu today iu tbe United Btutee, Our people bold him in tbe same contempt that France does Baulo, tbe Italian who aeeuiinuted President Ournot. A week from tomorrow all tbe town cauouiee will have been held and tbe delegates selected to attend tbe county con- veutiou. As there is uo eoaroity of good material from wbiob to make good uoiuimitlouB, the delegates will buve no easy tuek before them, Bum Clurk wu» nominated far congress in tbe flret diuthol to fill tbe pluue of Bojuuler Gear. Tbfe MDfttor is uot at ull pleuBod wllb Horn ag bis euo- Bur. Clark said: "We ure opposed to kueMoKluley bill, We shall uuntiuue to disprove it whether it become* u law or not, or whatever the platform wuy say •bout it. It it becomes u law a majority of towa Republicans will at oboe scaep it fie law «nd gospel. We shall not.' This WBS sold however when he WBB on); An editor, now that he boa become a ostt didate for congressional honors, we pre euine he, too, will accept it as "law an gospel." . We understand that the name of Olmr Stoolman of Sheridan township will b presented as a candidate foi the nomina tion for supervisor. Mr, Stoolman is on of the beat Democrats in Oarroll count; end would fill the office of superviso with ability and credit. Says the Philadelphia Record: "Eitb er the mails will go forward and inter state commerce be resumed on the rail way lines entering Chicago, or the conn try will dip ite flag to the leaders of in eurreotion. It ia a choice between settlei government and anarchy. There are n Bide lEsues. Until order shall have been re-established, property made safe am the laws again operative there should he no partisanship any where in the country Every man who is not a public enem should stand behind Grover CleveUud in the maintenance of the lawe and ot the common rights which hedge about the life and liberty of the citizen." President Cleveland baa signified his intention, of appointing >a commission to investigate the labor troubles in Chicago and elsewhere and to arbitrate the differences between the employers and the employee. Mr. Cleveland, has shown himself, in this the greatest crisis the county baa reached in the labor agitation to be an ideal president.. On tbe one hand he baa set his foot firmly againsl riot and anarchy and on the side of law and order, while on the other he has extended bis aid and sympathy to the laboring oloeeee of our people and said "Your cause shall be investigated and it it is a just one yon shaM have the support of the government in all lawful endeavors to adjust your grievances;' Duke Pnl'man may learn tbnt he is not living in Italy, where he waa Knighted, and tbat tbe working people of this coon. try have some rights. The end ot the strike is at hand and President Cleveland ie entitled to tbe tbankd of the' working men and of the whole people for his efforts to bring tbe country out of the difficulties that have lately beset us. Perkins on Sugar. Congressman Perkins, of the eleventh [owa district, ia a candidate for re-election, tbe Republicans having favored him with a re-nomination. Usually Mr. Parsi us is somewhat of a dodger on quee tions of interest to bis constituents, but he recently expressed himself as to his position OD tbe sugar schedule of tbe pending tariff bill, saying to a reporter of a New York paper, "1 stand on the MoEioley bill on the sugar question." Tbe voters of the eleventh district are to be congratulated in learning bow Mr. Perkins elands on something. It seemi hardly possible, however, tbat they indorse Mr. Perkins' position on rbis qaea< ion. Even tbe much-abused senate Bobednle is ad improvement on the Mo- Kinley bill. Tbe latter providee for M>unty of two oente a pound on all sugar produced in the United States and (ivea a protective doty to tbe s'ngur met of five-tenths of one cent par pound. Tbe wnate schedule repeals tbe bounty and provides for a duty to benefit the trust of one-eighth of one oent J juund. if tbe senate bill ia a trust bill tecanse it gives the trust a duty tit one eighth of one cent per pound, the Mo- Kinley bill is M much more "trust?" <ie tie-half is greater than one-eighth. We hope the bouse will iuaist upon changing the bill to that it is more fav orable to tbe consumers than it ia at uretent, but we want tbe people to understand tbat even if tbe bill ie left as it s, so far as the sugar eohedole ie con oeriied tbe trust does not receive eo much >roteotioa by three-eighths of a cent a K>nnd SB it did under tbe MoKjuley bill ?be voters of tbe eleventh district are to decide this tall whether they favor giving be trust tbe extra three-eighths of a cent ler pound that Mr. Perkiua eayt be avore. We don't believe they agree with their representative on tuie ques- ion, ^ Colonel Kiner. A man by tbe a»me of Kiuer from Id* ouuty is uot tutiened with the write-up 'OB SBNTINKL gave of the, Republican udioial convention held here on tbe •eaoud ot July. He evidently i* not acquainted with the editors of Tun BRN- INBL or he would never begin « pom. muuioatioD to the Herald in the follow- ng language: "I ehould uot notice the rtiole if tbe Democratic falsifying ibeet ud uot linked Ida county delegation, in >ia fulee uud inalioioug charges." Just what charge the gentleman hue reference o we are unadvised. Hut be UUOWB bit pleea ut the Carroll delegation for hav- ig gone In with Uao and auBie|«4 ia umiuatiug Elwood, tbaa "knooking oat da." Be also «aye that "Ida voM solid' for MoOreary." Just what kind of a votebemeuue *hea be eay« Id* votort "solid" is not given in out t>ld gtnmmar nod we nre at RBB again. Onr advice to Mr. Kiner is to come to Carrol oooBBionally and form onr acquaintance or at least take pains to learn the worth ot Tat! SfiNtlKBi, and he will become more ot a gentleman and have a better idea ot the English language than he now possesses, If Ida county did not agree to vote for Judge then the Republicans are to blame foi the "malicious statement," for thev are our. authority and we do not think would be a very difficult task to prove that part of the Ida delegation had agreed to oast their vote for him, Bat as this is none of onr nffnir we will let them settle their own difficulty, but we lire sorry the colonel has so poor an opinion of us aa he has, for we are sure be doeB us a great injustice by jumping at tbe conclusion that because we are Democrats that we, edit a "falsifying, sheet." The colonel is too hide bound to be a good citizen. Its Backbone Broken. The great etrikp which bus paralyzed business for the past two weeks is falling to pieces of its own weight. The em ployes at the Pullman works may have been justified in striking and probably were, but the, boycott. and mob ribfi which followed,as an outgrowth of Debs' "sympathetic" strike WBB ill advised and dangerous in their results, iilad, it not been for the firm and prompt aotiott of President Cleveland in Sending government troops to protect government property and assist in inforoing the ;or- derB of the court, Chicago, the hot bed of anarchy, would have been in a state of open rebellion. No' sooner had tlie troopebeen massed in that city in snffi- cieht numbers to bid defiance to the mob; to suppress riot and protect life aiid property, than the men who bad Men driven from work began to return, the wheels' of commerce which had bean' blocked were again set in motion and the "sympathetic" strike idea fast began to lose its power. Debsism, the Qlobe says, is tottering and will soon go down with a oraah: "All over the country men .are returning to their posts of duty and even in Chicago, the storiu center—the citadel of anarchy—men are returning to work afe •fast as they can find places. The grand rush away f rOm the workbench is only surpassed by the grand rush back again. After two weeks of idleness and riot ttie working men have become convinced of the folly of Debsiem and are just as quick to desert from the ranks of strikers as they were'to muster in. The Dfibi dynasty was an expensive luxury to Chicago; to Illinois and to the general public. It was no less expensive to the laborer. It IBS cost Chicago millions of dollars and has inflicted a commercial loss upon the :ountry at large that almost challenges computation. What it has cost organized labor in dollars and cents may hot be a very large amount, but it has cost it a position iu public opiniop that was too valuable to be measured by a monetary ionsideration. When the strike was ordered organized'labor commanded the respect of nearly every one, but the tw- ul scenes of the past two weeks have made a sweeping change in icntimcinl. Whether organized labor be directly responsible for them nr not the conserva Ive element will recognize the relationship which one bears to the other and will shoulder more or less of the reipon. Hiiiity upon .organized labor. The mo • tuent that organized labor countenances the bomb and torch or permits their use n Its'name or behalf tbat moment It for 'eitu its standing In public opinion. The itrikers may contend that they are not responsible for riot and wrecking of property, but it is a noteworthy fact that riot *ad lawlessness did not prevail until he strike was inaugurated, thus eiUb- lehing an affinity between them that needs no explanation. However, the strike Is about over. It will result in Igno miniouB defeat to Debs and his dynasty, and from it the ({real masses of tho people may learn a very valuable and uu- >ortaut lesson." ju'wr is entitled to fMlr <md liberal oompeunatiou and Is also entitled to the peot of capital, bat It oan never ut- ain either through euob methods as hove teen resorted to during the past fortnight Law and order must be sntniueft ua be who takca either in hie owu lauds becomes an enemy to society, end orfetls nil oltims be has upon tbe jiub- io, Democrat.* Good Plorenoonrt will no doubt seek to be. some a delegate to the county cuuveu- ion.

Disbanded. Dva MolnoB Louder, Kelley's army of vagabonds ia broken op, scattered and di-moralizec). Qover oor MoOorkle of West .Virginia is re Bponeible for this condition of affairs The gang reached Huutibgton, Wes Virginia, Saturday on a captured Ohesa peake & Obio train. They were immedi ately surrounded by two companies o militia and held until the governor arriv ed. He broke the army up into three divisions, started one into Ohio and an other into Kentucky and allowed thi third to proceed into West Virginia Since that time each ot the divisions has rapidly disintegrated. Election or a Frcholi President. b"* is no vice president of France and the president is elected by the up per and lower houses of congress. When a president dies in office, it; is provide* that i a' new president must be electee within three days. President Carno was assassinated Surtday evening. Cast mir-Perier was elected to succeed him on Wednesday. In Paris the halls of the two legislative branches—senate am chamber of deputies—are half an hour's distance' apart. When the chambers meet to elect a president, they go out 6: taris to the royal city of Versailles, in the!,' suburbs. They meet in the grea 1 hall of the old palace and ballot for. the president. The reason for this odd cus torn Is not very clear to tbe American mind. After the;murder of Carnot Prime Minister ' Dupuy called together the other members of the cabinet, also Chal- lemel-Lacour, president of the senate, and Casimir-Perier, president of the chamber of deputies. The two bodies together are called the national assembly, and the president of the senate, Lacour, is its presiding officer. The day after the assassination of Carnot Cha| lemel-Lacour issued this'proclamation: In our capacity as president of .the national assembly, we summon tlie chambers to meet la oongreea at Versailles on Wednesday, Juno 27, »t 1 o'clock In the afternoon, for tbe purpose ol electing a president ol' the republic. P. A. CIIALLEMEL-LACOUB. The term of a French president is seven years. Oarnot's term would have expired in September. He would have been a candidate for re-election and would probably have obtained the office, Casimir-Perier's election has therefore only anticipated the regular oneof a few months later, and he will serve the full term of seven years. Although/Perief was president of the chamber of deputies, he owes Inn election to the senate, which gave him a large majority. He only received a minority of the votes of his own chamber. Thia is because he belongs to tho moderate Republican group, while 1 the French chamber of deputies is full of socialist members. The senate is composed ot older, riper men, who saw in the election of Perier a guarantee for a conservative policy. He is very popular in the upper society of France. He has a large fortune, and his wife is of aristocratic birth. Poor human nature'even in a republic still loves wealth and so called rank. In his speech accepting the high honor Casimir-Perier said, "I shall give my country all there is In me of energy and patriotism," which ia a very admirable sentiment. "Very Few Respectable People." "There were very few respectable people present" A gentleman who represented tho weulth and culture of Philadelphia looked at a little crowd of persons assembled in an open space listening to something that somebody waa reading to thorn. He was passing by, and curiosity prompted him to glance at tho people, They were shabby looking, ou the whole, a crowd partly laborers pausing briefly in thoir work, partly idleru listening with uo particular purpose. Not uiuuy of them hud polished boots, and thujr nails bad not buoii manicured that morning. Oh, dear, not Tho Hue, high bred Philadelphia!!, who represented ihosufo, cousorvatlve Bontimunt of the muuuyed clusuea of the aolid old town, took in tho motley crow aud rouiurlced us ho pobttud on uuJ lol't them, "There were very fow respectable people prea- ent." Tho day waa July 4,1770.

The Americans could not do better than to join the German singing so-, cietle?, wherever they are—that is, If' they could be admitted. Two important conventions meet at Asbury Park July 5 and 0. One is the 'national editorial convention; the other, is the national road conference. The, latter is an outcome of the fast growing sentiment in favor of good roads fof •America, Its object is to gather and 1 distribute information on roadbuildiiig, to establish good road clubs in localities • where these do not already exist and to convince all the old hunkers of America that good roads in their neighborhoods will be money in their pockets. One hundred dollars a year was what, on the average, New York wholesale- merchants paid to have the privilege of' piling their goods' and boxes upon the' tide walk and obstructing it contrary to* law. •What War la Like. Scribner's Magazine contains an article entitled "Gettysburg Week." It? consists of'extracts from the diary of the late Dr. Philip Schaff. When Lee-, invaded, Pennsylvania in June,, 1868,. Professor Schaff was a professor in the theological seminary at Mercersbnrg, in southern Pennsylvania, a few milesii north of the Maryland line. The bold Confederate riders and raiders crisscrossed their tracks back and forth through the hapless little town. At one; time they cleaned out the hardware and grocery stores of the village and paid for what they took in Confederate-money, worth 50 cents a bushel. Again they made a regular search' through all the houses for alleged'runa- way slaves, carrying off not only all the refugees they could find, but also freeborn negroes. Mercersburg had 1,200 inhabitants. As the news of Lee's approach was. heralded throughout the country the United'States, government took every precaution to fortify Harrisburg and Pi ttsburg, leaving the small towns on the border of southern Pennsylvania to their fate. It is not Btrange, , therefore, that Dr. Schaff writes in hi» journal, June 26, "The darkest hour of the American republic seems to be approaching." Anybody would be apt to think that if he had his horses stolen and hie potatoes and chickens confiscated. In the simple, straightforward style of a preacher and a man of peace Dr. Schaff portrays war as it appears to people on whom it falls, In this short paper there is more of its real effect than a young man who thirsts' for glory would' get from reading 10 volumes of ordinary war history. By a recent decision of Judge Ross of the United States circuit court at Los Angeles 700,000 acres near that city become public lands and will be thrown open to epttlement accordingly, The laud was claimed by the Southern Pacific railway company. The United. States brought suit for it as wrongfully held by the company and won. Here- will be opportunity for many more fre» farms and fruit gardens. 'An anarchist—a man without a country." These words deserve to be remembered, They were used by the Italian, ombassudor at Paris when he spoke of the grief of Italy at the murder 'of Carnot. No man before has so well characterized an anarchist. A mosquito killing plant has been imported from Japan, It belong* to the )rder of carnivorous plants and catches :be mosquito in its deadly embrace and holds it fast, We want millions of aores of this vegetable planted iu America. Three names have been applied by persons on whom they levied tribute to the police of New York. They ore called 'blackmailers," "servants under wages" and "hogs."
