f VOL. XIX. ALGONA, KOSSUTH COUNTY, IOT$A, JUNE 25, 1890. No. 38. R. Woodworks LOSING OUT •* A Rare Opportunity to Purchase *DRY GOODS. We have Reduced Prices on our Entire Stock. Here are a few of our TH&LAW, THE LAW. The talk of the mob as a remedy for the original package nuisance should be sloped. The mob is the last thing to be invoked. Appeals to brute force have always come from the other side, which can make no appeal successfully to conscience or reason in behalf of the liquor traffic. Those who have claimed to be the friends of law and order will make a mistake if by their example they justify a resort to mob violence. The turn will come in good season, and in the meantime every man's legal right should be accorded him. The line should be drawn strictly on what is permitted by the law as declared by our highest court. The time to get in work is when somebody goes beyond that and renders supreme court decisions for himself. ; The decision of Judge which Judge Carr is understood to concur,limits the right of hie original package vendor under the recent decision to the sale of liquors in bulk, in the boxes or barrels in which they are shipped into the state. When they are taken out of these and sold in bottles the laws of the state govern, and injunction or other process under our statutes can be invoked. This decision fixes the status of the original package business in this district, and those who want to'see the prohibitory laws of Iowa enforced should take due notice and govern themselves accordingly. tection argument in support of his position. He argues that the interests of New England are against protection, as increased dutiesKwill call into existence "rival industries," "new competition" and increased production, with attendant reductions in prices, Mr. Mills also warns the New Engenders that the McKinlcy bill will give them dear breadstuffa. This is in strange contrast with the assertion made by free trade papers to the farmers that a tariff on agricultural products can have no effect to raise prices. There is a strong probability that Senator Wilson's original package bill will pass the house at an early, day. The supreme court's decision goes against the enforcement of license as well as prohibition laws, so that the bill unites in its behalf, or ought to, all who favor either system. That it does not actually do this is owing to the fact that many who favor license do so to prevent a worse thing coming upon the saloon, in whose interest they are working. If they could defeat all laws for the control of the saloon they would joyfully do it. The bill has the powerful influence of Speaker Reed. the recent Maine state convention refused to declare for license or local option. As a consequence the saloon section of the party in that state has been obliged to inaugurate an independent movement. The McKinlcy bill has been reported by the senate finance committee. The changes in rates of tarilt are very numor- ous, but no radical departure from the house bill is proposed by the committee. President Harrison is credited with saying to a newspaper reporter in a recent interview that his course in vetoing or approving bills will not be influenced by his political interests but will be dictated by the good of the whole country as he sees it. He said further, as there- port goes, that he would not be a candidate for renomination. This, if true, opens the way for Robert Lincoln. ktin finish Print reduced from Common " " Amoskeag Shirting " grade " " " grade " "" " LL 8c to 6c. 6c to 4c. 5c to 3c. 15c to lie. 12% to lOc. 1'Oc tor 8c. SENSJSLESS KICKING. Linseed oil has now a tariff of 25 cents a gallon and :the McKinley bill proposes to increase it to 30 cents. The price of oil to day in England is 84 cents; in the United States, under a trust, 62 cents, or a net profit stolen from the consumer who wishes to beautify or protect his, home from the elements, of 28 cents a gallon.— Courier. So long as the farmer is protected by a a tariff of 20 cents a bushel on flax seed, linseed oil will have to have a corresponding protection or its manufacture will not be continued in this country. .If the manufacture goes abroad the home market for the farmer's raw material will cease to exist. And the moment the seed goes abroad to be made into oil it has to compete on equal terms with Russian grown flax, and the tariff has no effect on the price. <Theliiiteed Oil tariff is'therefore essential to the protection of the flax raiser of Kossutn, and when the McKin- leley bill puts an increased tariff on the flax seed it necessarily increases the rate on the oil. The Mills bill which the Courier swears by put flax seed on the free list, despite the fact that the tariff was known to be protective, as every year we import millions of bushels. The Mills bill proposed "free raw materials" for the benefit of the linseed oil manufacturers, who, the Courier alleges, have formed a trust. The price of linseed oil has been 'immensely lessened by tho building up of competing manufacturing in.this country. The U. D. M. makes much talk about what it considers an abuse, proxy representation in conventions. The state convention admits proxies but it does not admit to seats as delegates men who come without credentials, as oar county convention has frequently done. By the latter abuse the complexion of the convention has been entirely changed on more than one occasion, men who were not elected coming 1 in and exercising more power than those wht> were. The Sioux City Journal wants the Iowa republican convention of to-day to come out for the free coinage of silver. The republican state convention is in session at Sioux City to-day, It is convention weather. The Iowa Homestead, notes the, fact that while this country 000 pounds of wool we produce 000,000 pounds, only a little more' ; tfea%« half. The Homestead controverts the proposition that sheep cannot be" profitably grown on land worth $40 an acre and concludes its articlq by saying that "never was there a more inviting field waiting to be occupied. Every farmer in the state who is ijOtyj^Ow keeping sheep, should tforOugli&info^ of 'the 'best mettioits of nmnageineTit^. arid begin the work now. There can never be a better opening." Judge Geo. W. McCrary, an Iowa man, died at St. Joseph, Missouri, Monday. The death of the widow of Senator Grimes at Washington is announced. Lafe Young says in his Des Moines Capital that the mugwump does no yelling. He probably means that he does no yelling for the republican party. To say that the mugwump is "no good to nobody" would be real mean. The Des Moines Capital ventures the remark that "the severest critics of the McKinley bill aitj those who have not read The Courier saysthe U. D.

ALL OTHER GRADES REDUCED IN PROPORTION, The adoption by the senate last week of a free coinage amendment to the house silver bill precipitated excited sessions in the house, where the democrats greeted the report of the amended .bill with cheers. A struggle of two days over the reference of the bill ended Saturday in a victory for the conservative element, the bill going to the committee on coinage, weights and measures, of which Conger of Iowa is chairman. The free coinage amendment, it is believed, will be rejected, but the amendment providing for the redemptionof silver certificates in coin instead of bullion will be accepted by the house as a compromise, and the bill as so amended will pass and be approved by the President. That kind of a bill would be a good thing for the country. We give the Register's account of the Boone convention, from which it will be learned that a convention that is unanimous for one man may at the same time be a stirring one. There was no lack of enthusiasm. Mr. Dolliver's renomina- tion was conceded long ago, but the hearty good feeling with which it was tendered was an added compliment. Now if congress adjourns before long Mr. Dolliver can come homo and give us some republican speeches that will do good. iver denominated. BQONB, I!

That convention virtually passed a set of resolutions without dissent. There was no demand for anything that was omitted, nor no objection to what was passed. Here is a poiul; blank misstatement. Instead of adopting the resolutions the Courier refers to tbe convention refused to adopt them by laying them on the table. Bro. Hinchon is getting so that he lies like Harvey. It is not a strictly new idea that Secretary Elaine proposes for embodiment in the pending tariff bill, that articles of extensiye importation, like sugar, be placed on the free list conditioned on the free entry of our productions in the ports of the country to be benefited.. It is to be remembered that when coffee was placed on he free list to give us "a free breakfast table" Brazil clapped on an export duty equal to what we,had taken off, so that the aet result was, in place of "a free breakfast table" for ourselves, a free gift to Brazil of the amount hitherto collected. .30.~»pecial to the State 6"republican congressional '^J^'^''' djfrtmtf -held here today in PhehTs opera house, was a * veritable love feast, Congressman J. P. Dolliver being nominated by acclamation amid rousing cheers from the delegates. B. W. Crawford, of Fort Dodge, called the convention to order and Senator Kamrar, of Webster City, was made temporary chairman. About ninety out of 104 delegates to the convention were present. Ex-Speaker Head, from Jefferson, was made permanent chairman. The secretaries were M. K. Whalen of -Emmett county, Jno. B. Romans of /Crawford, and J. L. Berkheiraer of the Humboldt Republican. Congressman Dolliver was placed in nomination by Senator McVay, of Calhoun, in a ringing speech, coupled with a motion that the nomination be by acclamation. The nomination was seconded by numerous delegates from every county in the district and carried with a hurrah. Excellent speeches were made during the convention by ex-Governor Corpenter, Chairman Head, M. D. O'Connell, V. B. Dolliver and others. Late in the proceedings a telegram from Congressman Dolliver at Washington was read thanking the convention and proposing the sentiment "A United Republican Party in Iowa is Invincible." This telegram and every mention of Dolliver's name was roundly cheered. The committee on resolutions reported that in view of the near approach of the state convention they would offer no planks on political problems, but contented themselves with earnest commendation of President Harrison and Congressman Dolliver. A congressional committee of one from each county was chosen, and the convention adjourned. The delegates are being treated to an elegant banquet this evening tendered at the Butler house by the people of Boone. The congressional committee selected consist of 3. D, McVay, Lake City; F. A.
