ALGONA, IOWA. LIVERY and FEED LEWIS E. SMITH, Prop. Successor to J. G. Edwards. South of Tennent House, ALGONA. The Schmidt bill for the repeal of pro hibition has been the cause of- much debate in tfce Senate during the last week. Senqtor/ Mack made a masterly-speech yesterday afternoon against repeal .and the special order was continued upon adjournment until 10:30 this morning. There seems to be a little danger that the prohibitory law will be repealed or seriously modified at this session of the legislature. COLLEGE VS. "COLLEGE." There is talk of establishing a "college" at Webster City. It will be a good thing for the cause of higher education if the college never has any existence outside of the talking. Ask any candid and well informed college man in the state and he will telt|you that there are already too many Colleges in Iowa. Twice the number of College students it: the state could easily be!accommodated in half the number of Alleges. What is really needed is feWrV so called "colleges" and more seminaries and academies. The college should occupy a more dignified position than it does in Iowa and other western states. .We need a few western Yales andHarvards and Johns Hopkins Univer skies. It is impossible to build up an institution of that kind in a day and it will be impossible to build up one in all time if the idea of trying to support a mushroom "cojjege" or two in every county continue? to receive, encouragement. One modest and unpretentious academy will accomplish more good tban a dozen half grown "colleges." The academy takes the boy from the farm and after giving him the necessary preparation sends him on to the coilege and the university. The "college" takes the same student and without giving anything entitled to the name of a college education, keeps him away from the college and the university. The academy and seminary act as feeders for higher institutions of learning. Not so with the "college." It feeds nothing but Itself and lives nothing better than a half starved existence. We need twice as mjajay normal schools, academies and seminlries, but fewer "colleges." ' THE CASH STORE Keep a full line of nil kinds of Groceries, Crockery, and Queensware.

The new democratic tariff bill if passed will operate very seriously to the disadvantage of the wool grower. The bill proposes to put raw wool on the free list, thus throwing theJJAmerican wool grower in open competition with the wool growers of the world. The bill retains a duty of 35 per cent upon manufactured woolens. This is a nice discrimination against the wool producer in favor of the manufacturer that the farmers of the country who are interested in wool growing ought to appreciate. NEW ABSTRACT OFFICE. The undersigned having purchased the abstract books of C. M. Doxsee, A. D. !*, -Clarke & Co., and W. H. Nycum, are prepared to do neat and reliable work in that at living prices. We have but one policy—that of fair dealing and courtesy all. With this, supplemented by promptness, striet attention to business, none but first-class work, we trust we shall merit and receive the patronage formerly bestowed upon our worthy predecessors. Office at the old stand of C. M. 'oxsee, where we will be pleased to meet and make the acquaintance of our patrons 4nd all others who may favor us by calling. Very respectfully, HAY & RICE, Abstracters. The democrats have at last framed a tariff measure to take the place of Mr. McKinley's infamous law which they propose to repeal. The new bill places raw wool on the free list and reduces the duties on manufactured woolens from about 40 per cent down to about 85 per cent. That is about all there is to the new bill. If passed the bill will reduce the tariff duties about one eighth, a tremendous stride in the direction of free trade. It all goes to show th.e insincerity of the democratic party. They talked about the "robbery" of the new tariff law but when it comes to stopping the "steal" and the "robbery" they don't do anything. C ™YOST 10 Ribbon.

H, SMITH & CO., Cedar Rapids, Iowa, ,T A, HOU.ABAUCH, AC8HT* Alraia, Iowa, Governor Boies made another of his bad blunders in his speech at the Greystone Club in Denver a week ago last night. The Colorado democrats see but one great national issue— the silver question, because the free coinage of silver would be to the great advantage of the mine owners of Colorado. The governor completely ignored the silver question and every democrat who has a direct or indirect interest in a silver mine is hot about it. The Rocky Mountain News, the leading democratic paper of Colorado, expressess itself as follows: Governor Boies came a long way to commit political suicide. * * The men who think a gold bug democrat can carry I«wa on purely national issues are rainbow chasers. * * Boies of Iowa has been stricken with the Wall street lightning. Last fall he won his fight on a free coinage platform; now be declares that silver must not be mentioned for fear of offending the Cleveland gold bugs. Gov. Boies has followed Campbell. The Boles boom for the presidency has had something of a set back with the democracy west of the Missouri river, Il4 the governor beep gifted with, very great political sagacity fee wo#J4 fcaye stayed away from Colorado or fixed up some tend of » speech to wake '"•• HILL'S BOS8ISM. The 5& a most_. talked<:$boutfor the past-lew-'days has been David Bennett' Hill, Jthe Tamma'ny* 1 candidate for the democratic nomination for the presidency and the shrewdest and most unscrupulous politician in the democratic party. No other man in the party has as many and as bitter enemies as Hill and no man in any political party was ever stronger in spite of his enemies. He is a practical politician and thoroughly understands the business of getting votes. While his opponents are holding big meetings with brass bands and bonfires, he is out after votes and he gets them. Sometimes he employs one. method and sometimes another but it is votes that he is after and he always gets them. Hill has never yet sought for anything at the hands of his party but what he has succeeded in getting it. He has climbed up from the office of an Elmira alderman to be governor and United States senator. Now he is after the presidential nomination. With the exception of his Tammany following the democratic party is unanimous in saying that he shan't have it but he intends to get it just the same and be will probably be successful. His first move to capture the nomination at Chicago has been a move to capture the New York delegation to the convention. He has had the state convention called for the 32d of February a date so early that his oppo nents have no time to organize an effective opposition. It is a case of David Bennett Hill against the democratic party of the State of New York and the democratic party is not in it. If successful in securing the New York delegation to the national convention he will stand an excellent chance of capturing the nomination. GOODS Arriving every day. of PUBLIC SALE.
