BOOK AND JOB PRINTING. The equipment of the REPUBLICAN Office for Book and Job Printing is unsurpassed In this county. Steam power. ^•Advertising rates made known on application. This paper is the official paper of Kos- stith county and the city of Algona, The late farce of disarming the hostile Indians w ill probably be made plain in the spring with another Indian outbreak. The Indian situation on the frontier stands in need of a General Cook. We have noticed very little adverse comment upon President Harrison's appointment of Gov. Foster as Secretary of the Treasury. He is recognized by Democrats as well aa Republicans to be an able man. Tama Jim Wilson has several articles this week that arc worthy of special mention editorially, We find that our farm department is uniformally appreciated and closely read by our farmer readers. There is lots in it. line will be condensed and reliable, and will mean something. The big twenty page edition so common now, that nobody reads through, will be succeeded by the edition of six or eight pages giving in a few words a complete digest of the news happenings of the world. The newspaper of the future will be a news paptr, and the problem will be, how to get the most news in the smallest space rather than how to "fill up." Conspicuous among the eastern papers that are being modelled upon this plan is the New York Press. The news columns of the Press contain nothing but news, and every editorial means something. It stands in marked contrast to the World and other eastern newspapers that might be mentioned. Judging from its success, the people have at last come to feel the want of just that kind of a newspaper. The Press is only three years old and has the largest circulation of any Republican paper in the United States. Bros., capitalists of Pittsburg and Wales, England, by which South Joliet, 111., has secured a $500,000 tin plate mill. Miss Zoe Gayton, the actress who has undertaken to walk across the continent inside of 200 days for $2,500, is 205 miles ahead of her schedule time and will reach New York about the 20th of this month. A poll of the Missouri legislature on preferences for presidential candidates resulted: Cleveland 35, Palmer 10, Boies 7, Gray 1. Eleven were non-committal and 11 against Cleveland. The Republicans were unanimous for Elaine. The vexed question of the nominee for governor next fall on the Republican ticket has been lost sight of during the beat of the corn controversy. The fact still remains that the nominee must be a farmer and a prohibitionist. The Republicans gained several councilmen at the municipal election in Sioux city Monday. There is hope yet for that town. The laws were reasonably enforc ed over there 'before the 'inauguration of democratic rule with the present era of open saloons and lawlessness. The Ohio Valley Manufacturer of February 5th stands responsible for the statement, that the factories for the manufacture of tin .plate now in process of construction in this country, will have a capacity ef over 5,000,000 boxes per year. The country uses about 6,000,000 boxes per year. Work for the American laboring man, employment for American capital, better times and in the end cheaper tin plate will be the inevitable result. Illinoieans are not all "suckers" in the strict ssase of the word, and they give no credence to the calamity stories of his excellency Horace Boies. Since the gov- eraor made his argument in New York city against the good name of Iowa as an agricultural state,'the largest exodus of Illinois people into Iowa ever known has taken place. Two solid train loads of immigrants from MoLean county Illinois, struck Webster .city last Wednesday. Illinois people live near enough to Iowa to know that raising corn on this side of the Mississippi is a profitable business. Wendell Phillips: Putting aside all theories, every lover of .progress must see with profund regret the introduction here of any element which will lesson wages. The mainspring of our progress is high wages—wages at such a level that the workingman -can spare his wife to preside over a home, can command leis ure, go to lectures, take a newspaper, and lift himself from the deadening level of mere toil. That dollar left after all the bills are paid on Saturday night means education, independence, self respect, manhood; it increases the value of every acre near by, fills the town with dwell ings, opens public libraries and crowds v ^hem, dots the continent with cities, and * Cobwebs it with railways. The one remaining dollar insures progress and I guarantees millions to its owner, better than a score of statutes. It is woith more than a thousand colleges, and makes armies and police superfluous. UNMASKED. Cedar Rapids Republican; The masks under which certain democrats have for years been masquerading as republicans are now stript off, and none but the willfully bund can fail to see these make- believe republicans as they are. And it is a good day for the Republican party. Give us honest politics, hon est and fearless newspapers. The Cedar Rapids Republican has had its share of the unmasking to perform, and has not been under the necessity of looking very far for a subject that needed unmasking. Let the straight-forward Republican papers stand together fpr an unmasked and an honest campaign in '92. It will mean a Republican victory. AS THE STATE TEMPERANCE ALLIANCE SEES IT. The call for fee fifteenth annual meeting of the Iowa State Temperance Alliance which will take place in Des Moines Tuesday, March 10th, 1891, and continue in session Wedaesday and Thursday has been issued. The call cites that "The future of prohibition in Iowa will depend 'argely on the success of this meeting. We'are rapidly approaching the most critical period in the history of the cause. The enemy have their plans laid and their forces in line. Whether they advance or retreat will depend upon the strength and temper of this, convention. The friends of humanity in other states are watching with deep interest and solicitude to see if we are equal to the emergency." The future of prohibition depends .largely upon the success of this meeting, and it depends entirely upon the election of a Republican legislature next fall. It remains for the friends of temperance to stand together. The "third party" with their usual inconsistency, will probably put a ticket in the field next fall and add to the chances of Republican defeat with the consequent repeal of prohibition. It has been a noticeable fact that the more prominent members of the "third party" in Iowa have been the less prominent in the work of the temperance alliance. TPftriflf Pictures. From the New York Press. The average price of barley in eight farming states, 38}£ cents per bushel. In eight manufacturing states, 60 cents per bushel. Why not extend this market by foster ing more manufacturing? American iron is supplying the American market. We imported 768,388 tons "•^•••^•••v^^m^nMMH^HlBHmim^^ll^^^^^^^^^^^^^H of manufactured iron in 1889, and only 653,016 tons in 1890. Society and W»U Street. .ill Btreet's intimate relationship vntbJsociety has often been denied. But wterecent developments socially have shown that the dependency of one upon thfc other is almost complete. The enor- mdntl depression of values down town and fixe animated and erratic condition of the market resulted in the abandon- !|l8 J i \,? f literaUv scores of dinner parties and the postponement of many entertainments in that portion of New York which has its center on Murray Hill. Now that things are quiet again in Wall street the theatres are beginning to fill up, the restaurants are crowded, and there are numberless announcements of new parties and dances,— -New York Sun. NEWS BRIEFS. Another picture about home prices of cereals. The subject to-day is rye. In eight agricultural states the price is 34 cents per bushel. In eight manufacturing states the price is 60 cents per pushel. 76 per cent, higher in manufacturing states. As manufacturing extends, the price of the farmers' products increases right here at home.

Glancing over the big square envelopes now traveling through the mails, with the addresses sprawled in fashionable English writing up and down instead of across the surface, one stops to wonder who Invented such an ugly and inconvenient method of direction to puzzle postnien, and' make their recipients' heads swim trying to decipher them. In bold,' black chirography, the "To" sits in the lower left hand corner, with name running to right, and street, town and state artistically and irregularly distributed over the remainder of the envelope It is a change, but that ia about all one can say in its favor.— Illustrated American. r We are on the verge of a revolution in American journalism. The press of the count^, Aas pandered to the taste of the American people until a revolution in the style of the American newspaper is being demanded and an example of reform will soon be set by the leading journalists and newspaper men of the country. The distinguishing feature of the American newspaper in the last twenty-five years has been its sensationalism. The papers which have met with, the largest success financially have been papers »f the sensational character. The average American will skip a column pf interestipg and really important news to read a faked account of the birth of a child devil in Min,, nesota, or of the discovery pf a mine of '',;'| cheese of a first class quality in southern 0irj Iowa. To gratify the taste of the peo- 1 pie the American newspaper has heeu degraded from its real office and made a medium for the publication of faked stories of everything that is strange a&4 «ou«iaj. Tili newspaper of the uews- Ft. Dodge elected a Democratic mayor. Cedar Rapids went Democratic in the recent -city election. P. T. Barnum is in a critical condition at his iome in Bridgeport. The>fiirect tax bill has received the sig nature of President Harrison. Congress h«s been getting a move on itself during the last hours of the session. The prospect for the resubmission of prohibhen in Dakota is not very flattering. Senator George Hearst, of California, and Senator Wilson, of Maryland, have recently died. Judge -Charles H. Phelps, of Burlington, is dead. Judge McKinney, of Dubuque, also died recently. Prince Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte, a grand nephew of Napoleon the great is reported to fee dying at Rome. A passenger train on the Iowa Centra! went into the ditch just south of Masoa City Monday morning. No one killed. At the low* Inter Collegiate Oratorical contest held at Indianola last week, Coe College at Cedar Rapids took first honors. Another Indian outbreak is expected to take place in the spring. The ladians are uneasy and further trouble seems almost certain. The Grant Monument committee, of New York, will break ground for the monument April 37th, the 69th anniversary of General Grant's birth. Secretary Windom died a poor man. Some of the wealthier friends of the late secretary in New York City are raising a fund of some $50,000 for his widow. Elmer Warren, the tramp who murdered conductor O'Neill at Long Point recently, pleaded guilty ia court at Toledo last Saturday. He is to be sentenced, t»- Pay KoU or tuo auxntev. At a meeting of the Confederate Survivors' association in Atlanta Capt. Frank M. Myers laid before the veterans a correspondence of recent date between his brother, Maj. Henry Myers, of Jacksonville, Fla., and Librarian Charles Herbst, of Macon, in reference to the sale by the latter to the Libby Prison museum ai Chicago of the pay muster roll of the Confederate ship of -war Sumter, of -which. Maj. Myers was paymaster. In the letters Maj Myers pronounces the sale of the relic unauthorized, says he gave it to Mr. Herbst in 1871 only as librarian of' the Atlantic library that it might be preserved therein, and he calls upon Mr. Herbst to make restitution to the Veterans' association. The members of the association, taking the view that this demand makes the price of the document their property, passed a resolution thanking Maj. Myers for the gift, and. appointed a committee to make an investigation and take steps toward the recovery of the money. The veterans say they have taken hold of the matter in earnest, and will insist on restitution as long as a chance remains for the enforcement of their claim.— Savannah INews. Bancroft, a man who was a tramp eight years ago, and who died recently at Portland, Ore., bequeathed all bis property, estimated at $15,000, to a woman in Sacramento, Cal., who once gave him a night's lodging and breakfast and $1 besides, together with some good advice. William Archer's criticism on Mrs. Langtry's Cleopatra is everywhere pronounced to be the most severe on record. Here it is: "Purple patches pf Shakespeare swimming in a prismatic scintillant maelstrom of spectacle." What we know as peers of England are not the only hereditary functionaries in Great Britain. . The court of queen's bench 'has just been led to decide that there are a certain number of hereditary pawnbrokers. - Some of the'best dinners in "Washington Jast year were given by Representative Flower, of New York. He dined nearly every .member of congress, and the result baa been a great boom to his popularity. Near Indianapolis, Ind., in Sugar Creek township, a panther has been committing serious depredations.

Yost, Jr., of this city, tells fish story that is worthy to rank with the classics, only that there are any number of witnesses to prove its truth, and the fish still lives. "Friday morning," says Mr. Yost, "I bought a number of fish, among them a handsome German carp, the first of the kind J had seen this season. I placed them all on a marble slab and covered them with ice to keep them cold and moist. Later on J hung up the carp, as he was on a split or string such as fishermen usually use in bunching fish. While handling him I noticed a slight convulsion, pass through his body and a move- meat of his taiL "I was naturally surprised, for I knew that carp had been caught at least forty- eight hours before, but on & closer examination I noticed tuijnjstaiable signs of life, and J placed him in fresh water. la about two hours he h,ega» to breathe, and then I transferred him to a large tab, where he has contwned to improve s» zspdly that now he bWHoa about Montana, Oregon and f asMngton, The remarkable growth in population of the region occupied by the states of Montana, Oregon and Washington is only surprising to those who are unacquainted with the unusual natural resources of this section.
