The Way It Is Going. Telegraphic Reports Received Up Until One O'clock This Morning, 'Judging from reports received the Republican state ticket will be given a majority of over 200 in this county which is a conservative estimate. J. G. Smith seems to be every where running ahead of his ticket and will be elected by a large majority without question. Most of the county ticket is in doubt- Mr, Lantry failed to make the gains that his friends had counted on in Algona, receiving but 86 majority over Mr. CUipman. B. F, Reed lost heavily in Algona receiving but 18 majority. M. Stephens received but 36 majority in Algona and it is reported that Graham was given 52 in Bancroft. The following reports were received last night, but we cannot vouch for their reliability, and consequently have not included them in our table, Featou reports democratic majority of ^ Pfl State ticket, ft-esco reports Smith 50, Bourne 41, Chipman 26, Lantry 65, Stephens 27, Graham 62, Reed 43, Carey 31.

Telegraphic repurts received at 1 a. m. this morning indicate that McKinley is elected governor of Ohio by a large majority. Flower is probably elected in New York by about 15,000 majority and Pennsylvania is in doubt. Reports from Iowa are meagre but show republican gains. NOBODY WILL OWN IT. The Doilg-er that was Circulated thro the County Against Bon Reed. It was noised «bout through the county last Thursday that a circular, printed in German and giving a faked account of a speech made by B. F. Reed, at a republican meeting in Algona had been given wide circulation among the German residents of the county. After considerable chasing we succeeded in running down one of the circulars, which literally translated reads as follows: What they think about us.—In a speech in Algona, Iowa, on the 10th of October, 1891, B. F. Reed, candidate for school superintendent on the republican ticket, said that after Sioux City had closed its saloons and all classes of stinkers, thieves, and prostitutes had been driven out, this place went democratic and Covington and fit p P, lnts > Nevv York, were samples of the democratic party. This man would now have it that the democrats should all vote for him. The truth of this can ue corroborated by asking anv- one who was there and beard him say it. (His own father is a democrat.)

"This place" was evidently intended to refer to Covington, Nebraska, instead of Sioux City, as the blunderbus who composed the German made it read. It is possi- blei the circular came from Covington, which would account for the writer having said "this pJace" and leaving , WILL STEBBINS, AND OTHEBS.

The fact of its being a democratic town may be accounted for upon any hypothesis that suits our democratic friends. the genuineness of the letter. Following is Mr. Wheeler's reply which was given to the REPUBLICAN press yesterday: ODEIIOLT, Iowa, Nov. 2.—Dubuque Times: I never wrote such a letter to Turney or anybody else.

WHEELER. In addition to the Wheeler letter forgery the democratic state central committee .sent out bogus lists of republicans in Sioux City and Cedar Rapids with the announcement that these men had declared themselves for Boies. The men named were immediately interviewed by reporters of the Sioux City Journal and Cedar Rapids Republican, and another democratic campaign lie was cornered. Of course it was the intention of the democratic managers to create toe impression that there was a landslide of republican votes for Boies, and thus influence election. It is a |»oor cause that has to rely upon such methods as were e«. ployed in the deo»oeratic campaign. RAIDED LAST NIGHT. Charles Stuart who has been niug the billiard hall next to the Tennant House was arrested for violation of the prohibitory law. A search warrant was procured last night and the place raided by a force of specially deputized constables. About a gallon of liquor was seized and Mr. Stuart will either pay a good heavy fine or travel over the road. Mr. Stuart got in a large supply of stuff yesterday morning and evidently did a good business during the day. Stuart has a hearing this morning at 9 o'clock.

It was in the winter, the snow was very <i ee p and the gun was mounted upon a sled The Indians heard of its coming when many miles away, and fled in great precipitation, leaving only t he sad havoc of their hellish deeds. If this old gun had been there' twenty-four hours sooner, many valuable lives might have been saved. On the return trip, the heroic soldiers made their way back as best they could through the storms and snow and some of them never reached their homes,but perished on the way. Some fifteen years later two skeletons were found in a deep ravine, about five miles west of Emmetsburg, and beside them lay the old gun, It was brought in, cleaned from the rust in which it was imbedded ami carefully preserved, and a few years, later some darned fool, when remounting it, chiseled "Spencer, Iowa, 1880 »* into its venerable breecji, which may • have had a tendency to detract from its. • historic interest as a relic.
