No good can possibly come from tiny other* course, and the sooner all hands understand this and trim their political action accordingly, the quicker the party will be enabled to again record its four hundred' majority in the county, if there was any great issue in the convention beyond that of personal preferment, it was not easily llscovered. A resolution favoring Mr. Dolliver for congress met with no opposition whatever, and the delegates declared their preference for him in advance of Us adoption. This ought to be satisfactory to the Dolllvor men if it is to those who will do their cussing "behind the barn." If, as has boon suggested, there are any nnti-Dolliver republicans in this county, they are certainly not fools at this stage of the proceedings, and they should be given credit for cheerfully acquesclng to the will of the majority. This is at least good republicanism, whatever else may be said of it. The convention did one thing which will stand to its credit when it rejected the proxy system, and instructed those delegates who attend to cast the full vote. The proxy system is a pernicious one, and productive of more harm than ?ood. Of course it does not follow that because a man gets into a convention on a proxy he is a bad man and unfit to represent bis party, but when a person is selected as a delegate he should either attend tho convention or bo con- tout to allow his fellow delegates to cast his vote. Men are or ought to bo selected for those positions by reason of their fitness to properly fill them, but such selection should not carry with it tho right to delegate their authority to others. It is conducive of bad or at least unsatisfactory results, and it is a pleasure to see Kossuth republicans discarding the practice. Other deliberative bodies not infrequently find it necessary to adopt such a rule in order to insure fairness, and if fairness is needed anywhere it is in a political gathering.

For convention resolutions they are a unique production in that they are short and right to tho point. They are in accord with tho advanced sentiment of this country, and notably so with reference to tho western people. They oppose the payment of a sugar bounty until western agriculturists are equally favored, which as matter of fact means absolute opposition; recommend a measure whiah would put a stop to trusts and combines, and offer a vigorous protest to the McKinley tariff bill, which, as is woll known, increases tho duty on many articles, and makes them BO much more expensive for thoso who are compelled to buy. In short they are in perfect harmony with tho last national platform of the republicans, nnd with tho strong farmer element which composed last Saturday's convention it would be a matter of much surprise if they v/ero not adopted by a very largo majority, had action been taken upon them. THE failure of R. B. Warren is noted in tho news dispatches of Thursday last. It should bo mentioned In this connection that tho R. B. Warren referred to Is a stock broker and prominent board of trade man of Chicago. Tho other one is all right. MR. DUNN of Dubuquo holds the position of clerk of courts, tho state oil In- spectorship, and is also chairman of tho democratic state committee, but tho Du- buquo Horald evidently overlooked thlswhcn it criticised Gib. Pray for holding down a state office and the chairmanship of the republican state central committee at .ono and tho same time. What is consistent in tho ono caso ought not to bo Inconsistent in the other, and yet the fact remains that if both these men served the state faithfully in their capacities as state officials, they would have but little time to monkey with politics. COL. JED. LAKE of Buchanan county will bo a candidate for railroad commissioner before the republican state convention. Ho is the man who was on tho side of tho farmers of Iowa in tho famous drivo well suits some years ago. WHAT shall we say for Andrew D. Bairdt Ho declined the Brooklyn post- office, which was tendered him last week by President Harrison. In striking contrast is his action compared with tho manner In which federal patronage is usually secured. IOWA nEPUUUCANS. On Wednesday next the republican state convention meets at Sioux City, Thin mutter of taking this gathering away from Des Moines is a radical departure in Iowa politics, but there Is reason to believe it will result in good, as the Sioux City people are making elaborate preparations for tho entertainment of tho thousand or more of delegates, and they will take care of them in such manner as will probably make DCS Moines blush for shame when it is remembered that hotel bills in tho capital city have gone up rather than down on convention days. It has boon thoug'it that the state convention could not bo held elsewhere than at Des Moines, and, as a matter of fact, convenience to people from ull parts of the state suggests that city as tho proper place; but Sioux City Is engaged these days in making a good name for Itself us wall as doing something in tho booming lino, and if the convention Is not held there a second time, the reason will not bo assigned that Sioux City did not do the square thing. Tho nominations which will bo imtde at tho coming convention uro for tho ofllces at secretary of state, auditor, treasurer, attorney-general, judge of the supremo court, reporter of tho cupremo court, clerk of tho supreme court, and railroad commissioner. We liavo no knowledge us to how tho KosHuth delegates stand on the various candidate.., but there is one to whom wo owe much for his efforts In our behalf. Reference is made to Mr. McFarland, who is a candidate for secretary of state, and who in our normal school matter was our firm and steadfast friend from first to lust. Kossuth county can not do loss than give him Its united and continued support, and this wo believe will bo done. And usido from any consideration of this Icind, there is no question that ho is tho poor If not tho superior of any of tbjjj candidates now in tho field, so that our support would be worthily bestowed In any event. It IB woll known that this paper is not given to booming cun- didutos eM.Jier before or after a convention, but':^fafeul warranted in saying this muohw 1 u man who hus earned and is onwtlod to our everlasting gratitude. EDITOR MCFABLANO of tho Vludl- cutor is disposed to counsel moderation In criticism of tho McKinley bill, It was he who wrote to Senator Allison objecting to certulu features of the bill, and received In reply u letter from the senator endorsing his viowe. Hero is what Mc^urluud nuys la tho last issue of h(g paper; "Wo Uopo that our republican papers that thluk they sec u lack of wisdom iu some, features of the McKlnley bill will not go Una fveo tr«do extreme lu raising objections, Don't get scared, boys, over protection. Object, if you Iwwestly object, to any feature of the W.d, but flor/t lot tho dcttiscrftU" liowl of THE Chicago Tribune takes this view of tho original package matter: " Whether it (tho original package bill) will pass tho house by a majority proportionately so largo is doubtful, but there seems no reason to imagine that it will fail there. For tho decision interfors not merely with states which have adopted prohibitory laws, but also with those which uro pursuing tho rational policy of high license and local option. Therefore, a representative who votes for this bill cannot bo called a prohibitionist. He is, if from Philadelphia or Baltimore, voting to preserve tho license revenues of those two cities, which would bo cut Into if sellers of ' original packages' were to start on every street."

Brown, Dakota City ( treasurer, Edna M. Crossley, Webster City: secretary, G. F. Smart, Dakota City. Mrs. M. J. Aldrieh of Cedar Rapids delivered an excellent address Wednesday evening on the work to bo done by the association. It was a paper of much merit, and her remarks commanded the closest attention. During tho meeting the following resolutions were adopted: Resolved, That wo pledge anew our AVUBUIVUU, .LUUb WU fidelity and continued _. __ gospol temperance work and that wo memorialize our congressman, tho Hon. J. P. Dolliver, to work for tho Wilson bill, giving us speedy relief from tho ovll effects of this act of the supreme court. 2. That wo recognize tho Importance of cultivating that fraternal feeling which In a high sense brings us into fellowship with tho advanced hosts In all linos of reform and progress. S. That special temperance instruction bo urged In all Sabbath schools that the do- grradtng sin of tho drink habit bo deeply Impressed on tho minds of children and that they bo encouraged early in llfo to sign the temperance pledge, and that wo recommend temperance monthly concert exorcises and union temperance Sunday school meetings.

That wo will stand as originally organized on a non-partisan and non-sectarian platform. 8, That wo contemplate with sincere regret tho possibility of tho retirement of our beloved and honored leader, Mrs. J.

Good men were recommended to him, but he saw fit to go outside of the association to find a flsh commissioner. There are plenty of good then in this association who conld fill the office as it Ought to be filled and who would see that the fame and fifth laws were properly enforced. I believe the members of tMs association have a right to demand that the office of flsh commissioner be more closely looked after in the future than it has been in the past four years. And it seems a little strange that a man should be selected for flsh commissioner who has never attended the meetings of this association. There was a time when Iowa stood at the head and front and had a flsh hatchery that every member of this association was proud of. How is it now! Our lakes and rivers are being depleted of their fish and but little effort is made to restock them. Our flsh commission was so run down that the last legislature refused to' make any appropriation to keep It up, and all on account, of the Incompetency of the men placed in charge of It. The dry weather of the last two years haft caused a great scarcity of "wild fowl." Many of the small lakes and large sloughs went dry. The fires burnt through them and in some places the turf is burned down six or seven feet, The late rains have begun to fill thorn with water so that we shall have a larger area for Wild fowl than ever before. And I have no doubt but we shall have a large increase of wild fowl when the lakes and sloughs are filled with water. There are more ducks breeding in Iowa at the present time than for many years. Prairie chickens hold their own well. Tho Past two winters have been so mild, and wo nave so little snow, that most of the birds wintered well, and we may look for good shooting when the season opens. I hope that during the summer every member of this association will take it upon himself to see th'at our game laws are enforced. Public opinion Is with us, and if we all work together, there will bo but fow violations of our game laws. OLD THE RACES AT SPBNCBB. They arc Doing off All niglit—Trnck aXiittle Heavy.

A committee consisting of A. A. Call, J. E. Blackford, Mrs. L. H. Smith, Mrs. J. E. Stacy and Mrs. C. A.

Some of tho AUvnntniicy u allied Over tho stock Company 1'lan, To tho Editor: A fow Ideas wore advanced at tho meeting of tho mutual insurance company last week that might bo of interest in addition to tho report given at that time. Like all other companies tho mutual is organized for tho purpose of making money for tho owners. Therd is, however, a wide difference in our methods of reaching this end. Iu tho stock companies tho stock holders or owners uro comparatively but a small portion of tho assured, and they gut their profit in tho shape of a semi-annual or an annual dividend, while in tho mutual every person insured must boa member —a part of the company—and makes a profit by keeping his money in his own pocket until it is needed, und then only paying out just the amount thut is necessary. Tho result to tho owner is tho sumo in both cases, t If the coin puny does u paying busino||^io stock- .dor makes money. bold 'I'ding to tho report of tho sluto auditor In the year 1888 tho insurance ing business in the _^_ received in premiums thosuin ol 210.60 for losses, or a trllle over one dollar for every four.

A Letter from Illin In Itofcrcnco to Ills Son Xea's Trouble. Tho letter which follows, from Rev. W. H. Burnard, former paslorof the Congregational church of Algona, is self explanatory. Wo willingly gi vo it place for tho purpose of granting a hearing to tho interested parties, und also to disclaim some of tho sentiment attributed to this paper: MILES, Iowa, Juno 1.—To the Editor: My attention has been called to a notice of tho death of Miss Belle Crawford by suicide which was copied in the Urpisu DKS MOINES from a Jackson county paper. To this you add, If you are correctly quoted, tho following comment: "She loved not wisely but too well, and it may bo of inters! to Algona people to know that tho young man was Nod Burnard, son of our former pastor." Whether this remark is Justified by tho account as it was published in tho Jackson county paper, or whether It Is your contribution to the story, I cannot say, as I may not have seen tho paper. I have not soon any account, however, which gives any such view. Some papers in tho towns near by published incorrect and exaggerated accounts of the event, for they obtained their Information ou tho streets when tho worst things were surmised, and tho facts were not known, Tho only inference to bo made from your comment is that Ned's conduct drove the girl to commit suicide, and it IB a very serious charge to make. People will infer that ho had led her to ruin or had Jilted her, or both. Proof to the contrary Is absolute. Her motive for doing as she did cannot bo traced to auy act or word of his. Tho reason for her rash act may never bo known. But it Is known that she had trouble older than her connection with Ned. The note which she loft for her family In vague explanation of her deed refers to this trouble, but it contains no reference whatever to Ned, I do not believe that you would intentionally do Ned und his friends an injury, but such a statement as you make whore wo are all so well known must have that effect, I am sure that It will " bo of interest to Algona people to know that tho young man" has no guilty connection with the sad event. You will obligo mo and do an act of justice by inserting this explanation In your paper. Should it bo necessury I can substantiate ull I have said. Yours truly. W. H. BUHNAUU. In justice to this paper it should be said that It made no suoh comment as is attributed to it with roferenco to tho unfortunate occurrence at Miles. On May 28 last wo published an article from tho Jackson Sentinel giving the particulars, with only a brief introduction in which it was said that the Ned Burnard was a son of our old pastor. Wo said nothing about his having loved wisely or otherwise, further than that ho was engaged to bo married to tho young lady, Miss Belle Crawford. Tho article itself, which was in quotations, clearly indicating that it was not MOINES an article entitled " A Flag in Controversy," which brought my mind back to old times in Iowa. I have kept thinking since I read that article that I would write some facts on that subject, but other duties forbid. I wish to say, however, that 'in the article above mentioned there seem to be some things locking to the minds of old settlers. The appraisement of sanitary supplies was published in u Dubuquo paper, that I believe Mrs. H. E. Stacy hod. It gave tho name of articles and their estimated value according to tho appraisement. In that list you will find Mrs. H. Schenck, whoso name does not appear in your account, is given credit for $100, the estimated value of a single article—a forty gallon cask of wine mode from wino plant—and thoso who were there know she gave other sanitary supplies, such as a quantity of dried beef, cheese, pop corn, pickles, etc., as liberally as any one. And as she hod a larger family of small children than any other " war widow" in the county, and eave more towards procuring that flag than any other ono person, was tho first woman in the county north of Algona, and through Indian excitements and all other trying times of early days was a mother to every body. Even at tho celebrations no one will deny but there would have been a large vacancy without her basket and pails of fruit, in tho days when so fow had fruit. Sho always had something for tho sick, never spent her earnings for personal decoration, unless it was tho decoration of the soul with good deeds. But she did take as much prido as any other person in procuring that flag, and if she has passed to the land of souls a true history of tho sanitary flag would not be com- S loto without her name as its greatest onor.

Countenance will nevef again grace this corner—cause why, he's dead, too dead for any kind of use. His untimely taking off was the result of an effort to sell groceries at closer figures than did Patterson Brothers, In Algeria, Iowa.
