NEWS OF THE WEEK. . .•Stfft* 1 jfeettfli O&Mftyor Jones' Fath- nformation on er Signals. te Wanted Money but Get It-Tiie News At Washington, OJ? MB. JESSti JONES. ,yor Jones arrived home from tt, Canada, yesterday morning, to hloh plttce he was called Monday the iek before by the illness of his father. e did not get there in time to see his ther alive, as he died the same clay 6 telegram was sent. The Dumfries former gives the following sketch of Jones: On the forenoon of July 7, at Boon, 'X • Jesse Jones, in the 81st year of his , died in the triumphs of the Gospel, '.ch he so faithfully preached for fifty-five years. His last sermon, mch he intensely longed to give), was\on the 28th of June. He led his ^.. (w Class for the last time on the evening Of July 5, tlms fulfilling his life-long desii'e to "cease at once to work and live/' Mr. Jones was horn in the year 1809, in the Township of Whitchurch, County of York. His father came from Wales to the United States, but during the Revolutionary war removed to Canada, built the old fort at Amherstburg, and added another name to the long list of worthy U. E. Loyalists. His mother (the sister of the benevolent and beloved Jesse Ketchum, whose name will ever be revered by the citizens of Toronto and Buffalo,) was an American by birth. Her family gave to the United States two of its presidents, and to the world Elizabeth Wetherald, or Susan Warner, author of "The Wide, Wide World," "Queechy," etc. Jesse, the third son of this worthy couple, was the father of eleven children, ten of whom grew to manhood and womanhood. 1VKATHKR SIGNAL NOTES. The weather forecasts are made up for the twenty-four hours from 8 p. m. to 8 p. m.- The report is received here between 8 and 9 a. m., so that the day for which the signals are displayed is If gone before they are run up. This et should be borne in mind in deter; the correctness of forecasts. nother thing to remember is that- jlue flag means rain, and for this seaspwi usually only showers. The ;s being for a wide territory— the Yi'Biple state—its display does not signUyfrthat every locality will be visited W a shower. But when the white ',or fair weather flag is rained on there 'is something wrong with the forecast. The black triangular flag stands for tembernture. It is placed at one end •or the other. .When at =the north end as the Algona flags are displayed it indicates warmer, and when at the south end it means colder. When not displayed at all the forecast is for stationary temperature, or a variation from the preceding day of not more than four degrees. With these explanations kept in mind there will be no iccasion for excited discussions about ie interpretation of the signals. ATTEMPTED KO1JUEKY. An attempt at robbery was carried -into execution Saturday night in'the home of Charley Bronson in the south•-east part of town. Mrs. Bronson is -away visiting and Chas. had a friend, Henry Newman, to stay with him that night. During the afternoon and after ~the banks had closed, Mr. Bronson •came into possession of a sum of money which he had in his pockets. Along about half past two, young Newman, who was sleeping in another 1 bed in the .same room, woke up and saw between him and the window a figure fumbling with the clothing. He gave a yell that woke Bronsoii up and.made the intruder drop the clothes, Bronson quickly jumped up and gave chase, running the would-be robber down stairs, and out floors, where he was lost. Luckily he did n9t get hold of the money, and unluckily, he was not captured. ference, and which is certain to become a law, like all other compromise meastirea fails to please the extreme loiastftndttttlmM, or the free colniM silver caen» but it seems to suit the av» eraj$ man pretty ftell. It provides for the purchase of 4,500,000 ounces of Bllvet' each* month, which is said to be slightly in excess of the entire output of all the mines in the United States* Notwithstanding the extreme warm weather the President, since his return from Cape May Point Tuesday afternoon, has been working like a beaver. After many delays Wyoming is a state although the forty-fourth star will not be placed on the flag until the fourth of next July. The senate by a majority of a refused to open the debate on the tariff bill this week. Five republicans voted with the democrats in this, because they were opposed to taking up the tariff bill until the silver question had been finally disposed of. Representative Perkins of Kansas, has introduced a bill in the house to establish public schools in the territory of New Mexico. The house committee on invalid pensions has made a favorable report on the bill to pension army mu - ses. The bill only affects about 900 women, and it seems but tardy justice that these women, many of whom are destitute and in bad health, should be provided for by the government for the rest of their lives. There is an ugly report floating around here to the effect that representatives Hooker and Catchings, sitting members from Mississippi, had retained their seats by obtaining the influence of ex-Senato Bruce and Auditor Lynch, two Mississippi colored men now in office here. This may or may not be true, but certain it is that the house committee on elections has made a report against the republican contestants of Messrs. Hooker and Catching's seats. More than one hundred members of the house are absent from the city and Speaker Reed has the hardest kind of a time to keep a quorum present. In fact he doesn't do it. The unimportant business is allowed to go through without haying the question of "no quorum" raised and when anything of importance is to be acted on the members are drummed up until there is a quorum present. The original package bill was, according to the program of the committee on rules, to have been disposed of by the hpus.e this-week, but the house got contrary and refused to adopt the resolution submitted to it by the committee on rules. This is the first time this session that the house has refused to follow the program adopted by that committee. Chairman Belden of the republican congressional campaign committee has sent an appeal/to the republican editors of the country asking their aid in arousing public sentiment to the necessity of a federal election law. Thef house lias passed a bill containing the regulations adopted by the recent International Maritime Conference to prevent collisions at sea. We shall keep a full line of staples to sell at cost until we close. G. "R. WOODWOHTH, WASHINGTON BETTER. • From our Correspondent. WASHINOTON, D. C., July 10, 1890. Senator Quay, who has returned from Pennsylvania, siiid today: "Yes, the democrats are claiming a great deal in Pennsylvania this year but they will be wofully disappointed when the returns ~" " all in. My confidence in republi- fiucceas is unshaken; it is founded rook, and when you have sand in ltlo» to the necessary rpck you are pretty well fixed, and that is fust the condition of the republican party of Pennsylvania." That was a pretty long speeoft for Mr. Quay to make to a newspaper man. Taere ip not a word of truth in the statements made in democratic papers that the republican senators had made a bargain with the democrats by which the federal election bill was to be shelved for the session in return for democratic prpmpes of not obsfructing or delaying tne passage of the McKin- Jey tariff bill. Wluch bargain has been made, and 90 nuch bargain mil *b$ made. The republicans nave a large majority in the senato, and feo intimate tHSfc they would allow tlie minority to dictate what should or should not be done by that body is simply to insult of the brainie^Hyemlewoftbe n party. The tiriff bill will Pass before a detaei-mination bas «t ye* " ~ >n the federal electi another repijMtea . _ called before &i what shall be do»g wi$fe held last njgnt and aem& bad been credited afi 90^ * on bill. Don't forget that the Ringling Brothers Big Kail Road Show, which exhibits .at Algona Saturday, July 19, has the .greatest variety of elephants of any draft in this county. Among them are Babylon, the largest elephant on earth; Fanny, the baby elephant; Spot, the lilliputian clown elephant; Jewell, the Umbrella-eared ele- phat, also the greatest performing herd of elephantine actors on this continent.

Buux, July 16.—We are pleased to note that all kinds of crops are looking very fine, except a few pieces of barley which is attacked by an insect that cuts off the heads. However it is being harvested and is a good crop. Ad Wheeler is visiting his father and family and other friends during a brief vacation. Miss. Ida Chapin, of Humboldt, is visiting Mrs. Mayhew. Hardy Buell put in a good sidewalk on their vacant lot between the store and post office, which is greatly appreciated by all. By the way, our post office which has heretofore issued postal notes only has been made a money order office. Our supervisor has been doing some good work this week grading up the streets and repairing the crossings. The new German Methodist church w'as. dedicated Sunday. Revs. Jones and Day preached interesting sermons to good audiences. G. F. Barslou and mother, of Bancroft, paid our town a visit last week, O Sheldon is building an addition to his residence 14x24 feet in size. HANCKOFT. Register, July 9: R. M. Richmond is having an addition built to his hotel to give them a better chance to keep cool this warm weather. Geo. C. Call was up from Algo again looking after his prospects for good flax crop. > He says it is nearly perfection. The race track here will be put in shape for driving thereon, and then the fast horses of northern Kossuth will exhibit their speed. Harvest will soon be in full blast. Oats and wheat are ripening fast and some will be ready to cut next week. Then the greatest rush of the season will commence and last until the grain is threshed or stacked. John A. Winkel has brought his horses home from Algona,'and will give Kossuth just enough training this fall to keep his muscles hardening. He has decided to wait until next year before putting him into a race. B. F. Smith, of Ramsay, received a letter last Wednesday stating that a telegram had been sent him announcing the death of his father. He had not received the telegram at the .time though it, was sent the Friday before. His father had been in feeble health foi some time, and his death was expected at any time, yet it brought the same sorrow to the bereft ones. Special Correspondence. BANCBOTO, July 13.—Permit me to say the concert of last Friday evening at the Baptist church here was a success in every way.
