IT is getting quite a fashionable fad to refer to the republtcatlon of. foreign books us "piracy," and to demand an international copyright as a matter of "honesty." There is nothing in either claim. It Ss put forth by high-priced publishing houses and money-making authors In the interests of a book trust, and that is the end of it. Authors have no more right to a copyright than a newspaper has to nn exclusive privilege. The copyright law is a favor extended by the public as an encouragement to production, just as the patent law is.

JlLGONA, IOWA. WIIVKIIS Dealers In Hartae Ai». ADAMS has moved his Independent from Dakota City to Humboldt, and begins the 23rd year of that valuable paper's existence in the now town. In early years Humboldt and Kossuth counties had closser associations than of late, and the old Independent and ICosmos, tho old rivalry between Dakota and Humboldt were like local affairs. Tho Independent is tho pioneer paper, the first issue being Aug. 2, 1800. In 1808 It began its continued existence. Mr, Adams took it sixteen years ago, and keeps it the same bright and newsy paper that it has always been. It has less local interest hero than formerly, but tho old settlors still hoar with interest of its success and of tho changes in our neighboring county. Its removal from Dakota takes from that onco vigorous village almost the last vestigo importance, and Humboldt is now tho unquestioned metropolis. methods, with present appliances. But It cannot fall to suggest the possibility of great progress, and open the eyes of every farmer to the discovery of a shorter and •easier route to get out of the soil the rich possibilities it possesses. Tho time will come In Kossuth county when ten acres will produce more profit than 80 does today, and the farmer who finds out how to bring it about will have little to fear from tar- riffs, railway extortion, or mortgages. THE people of Milford think that the way for them to got ahead is by pulling Spirit Lake bock. Accordingly they are fighting to prevent the building of a $16,000 court house because Spirit Lake is the county seat. That sum is certainly little enough for a'county like Dickinson to expend, and if the county's present building is not worth that much it should lose no time in building. But somehow Milford expects to grow without the rest of tho county growing, and tho people can't see that they will prosper because Spirit Lake prospers and is enterprising. Such quarrel remind one of tho old strike of the hands and feet against the belly because the belly got all the food and did none of tho work. All such towns as Milford will find when they h'avo starved out their neighbors and killed tho spirit of onthuslasm and enterprise in their county, that at tho some time they havo killed themselves,' CARL SNYDER in the Council Bluffs Nonpareil describes the coming newspaper: " The political organ will doubtless always exist. So Jong as newspapers can be subsidized by office or run by politicians, the organ will continue to bo a factor. But the reading public is coming to recognize and demand in a newspaper that it shall be Something more than a mere political tool, that it shall speak for and conserve the larger Interests of the people who look to a political party not for office or spoils but as a means of good government. They look to a newspaper for its hews. They ask that its hews shall be honest and then they ask that its opinions on current questions shall be honest and fair. This sort of a newspaper Is coming to tho front. It is the paper that wins the respect and confidence of the public and In a larger sense is the most Influential. Doubtless such a newspaper will excite the contempt of the politician who looks upon politics as a sort of guerilla warfare whqreln victory Is rewarded with official spoil. But snch a newspaper can be content to bide Its time, confident of the final verdict." H. 0.

Several young men from Corwlth attended a dance near Twin mkes on last Saturday night, says the Crescent. It seems that original packages were quite plenty, and a general fight was indulged in. Several of the boys bear marks of the Norwegian's club. In the melee some shots were fired, and one young man living near the lakes was hit in the abdomen. Two of the Corwlth crowd are said to have left tho country. We know nothing as to the merits of the case, if,it has any, the general report being that a largo part of tho crowd was full.

JONES & S M IT Hk THE most serious dispute of the day husbecjn amicably settled. It is not whether we shall have reciprocity, or whether Speaker Reed's rulings are correct, but whether Mrs. Astor is Mrs. William Waldorf Astor or Mrs. William Astor. Letters have corno to the postofflco for Mrs. Astor, and the renowned females who havo been so lucky as to marry the effeminate decendants of the old fur trader have been pulling hair because each will not admit that the other is Mrs. Astor—the Mrs. Astor. Tho postmaster, who must bo an evory-day sort of an American, settled this threatening social uprising in a very simple manner by deciding that neither lady could get letters not addressed in her full name, and that letters to Mrs. Astor will go to the dead letter office.

Uearue tor public use. lieuduuur- tern fur the bent NOTIQf TO FARM Tho possibilltios that lie beforo tho good farmer have been pointed out so often at our institutes that many have come to believe that tho future has boon measured, and that we know tho limits of production. How far thus far we havo fallen short of any adequate conception of what nature can do with proper euro is shown In a remarkable article by Prince Kropotkin in tho lust Forum. His facts and figures road like u fairy story, and show not only that tho possibilities of tho farm havo not been measured, but that as yet wo havo not begun to farm. The article in full is worthy of reproduction. A few selections will servo to give a glimpse of tho wonderful fairy land of agriculture, enough to inspire a curiosity for more. His first showing is for wheat culture. Franco has raised wheat continuously on tho same soil. Thirty years ago tho average crop was 22 bushels per aero. Now there aro wholo sections which havo an average of 41 bushels to tho acre, special districts get 5.5 to 08 bushels per acre, and farms havo had 80 bushels per aero under special tillage. In East Flanders a territory of 87,000 acres supports 80,000 people, Whout averages 33-89 bushels, outs 78 bushels, boots 48 tons, carrots 14-18 tons as a catch crop—planted after other grain has been harvested. Mr, Champion in England gets 77 to 110 tons of boots to tho acre, M. Goffart in Franco for 14 consecutive years raised on tho sumo land an average of 40 tons of ensilage to tho acre—tlio food of four cows. Those crops aro tho result of manuring. In that part of Flanders where irrigation hus been used, six tons of hay to tho acre is tho avorago. Crops of 18 toiia to tho aero have been secured. In Jersey tho average potato crop is l?800 per acre, and for tho entire surfuco of tho island, rocks and nil, tho average yearly return Is $230 per aero. But oven those remarkable results of expert funning uro outdone by tho product of tho " kitchen farming" when glass shelter und artificial heut uro used. Prince Kropotkin describes ono of thoso gardens and says: "Kitchen gardens under glass are now tho rago. And whon I walked through these glass-roofed kitchen gardens, which do not know what failure means, uud which yield crop after crop throughout tho spring, summer, und autumn, I could not but ud- uilro tho recent conquests of man, I saw throe-fourths of un acre, covered with glass und heated for three months in tlio spring, yielding about eight tens of tomatoes, and about 200 pounds of beans us u first crop iu April nudMuy, to bo followed by two crops uioro during tho summer uud uutunm.

A » to SOME writer, who receives tho commendation of tho Dension Review, deplores tho Independence shown by the republican dally papers of Iowa. Ho names the Gate City, Nonpareil, Sioux City Journal, Register, and Cedar Rapids Republican, and Is indignant that any of them have objected to Quay's political morality, Rood's bulldozing, and McKlnloy's suicidal financial policy. Wo cannot but grieve for the Injured feelings 'of tho correspondent. He no doubt thinks Iowa republicanism doomed. But ho will probably live to BOO that tho independence and fearlessness of Iowa's daily press is doing a wonderful work and is really making tho republican party worthy of support. Ho will know some time, if ho is able to trace causes, that tho best political adherent is not tho man who defends caucuses most zealously or pledges his faith to every political mountebank, but tho ono who by insisting on wiso politics and honest methods maintains a political standard which constantly appeals to the intelligence nnd moral convictions of tho people. Lot tho daily papers alone. If republicanism is suffering by thoir course It Is because it will no longer stand honest tests. STEPHEN B. ELKINS has been interviewed and ridicules the Idea that Mr. Blaino has presidential aspirations for 18(12. Mr. Elklns says that Mr. Blnlno's ono desire Is to accomplish his reciprocity plans, and ho IB moving now because ho believes that tho McKlnloy bill simply makes reciprocity Impossible. Mr. Blaino, according to Mr, Elklns, wants to go down to posterity as the founder of tho groat American league of nations, and ho desires nothing else. That ho considers fame enough, for, If ho should merely succeed In accomplishing tho flrst step—reciprocity In trade—future generations of North and South Americans would rise up and call him blosssd. EARL HAMPTON'S VIEWS. Ho Discusses the Election nnd Silver Bills, J)OTV Before Congress—The Bclirlng Sea Controversy. WASHINGTON, D, C., July 27, 1890.— To the Editor: Will you kindly permit a far awaycorrespondent to Indulge in a little gossip with your readers on a few of tho current topics now engaging tho attention of the general public. Tho recent passage of tho election bill LAST week tho Courier thought male- ing tho black men citizens was tho reason why there is a race question. Now it soys: " Tho race problem will novcr bo sbttlod while the races aro In such close contact. In our opinion even education will not do It. Separation is tho only real solution." Wo havo no desire to drive the Courier further. It in enough to show that it will Invent excuses and turn corners rather than frankly admit that every American citizen has a right to vote, and that tho man who prevents him is a ruscal, and the man who takes office through frauds at tho ballot box commits a crime against free government. That tho Courier willnover admit. It will apollgozo, explain, and preach about the broad democratic principles it stands for, but no reader will oversee '<n its columns a frank demand that throughout tho length and breadth of tho land wo have an honest, free, and untrammeled ballot. Tho Courier believes in democratic principles—when it thinks they will help the democratic party. The Courier writes itself down in its treatment of this question a mere apologist and special pleader for tho bourbon and mossback clement of its party. WE havo no Intention of dragging Prof. Dodge Into any controversy with tho Courier. That paper treats him very unfairly by so flatly misrepresenting what ho said on tho southern question. A full report of his remarks was published In tho UFFXK DES MOINES of July 33, nnd wo command all who aro Interested to that Issue. A NUMBER of Minneapolis Journals aro taken horo because our people do not know that Iowa evening papers can bo had as early. Tho Dos Molncs News and Marshalltown Timcs-Hopubllcan both come on tho early morning train, and aro both reliable and nowsy Iowa papers. Thoy havo all tho general news tlio Journal does, and plenty of local news that It lias not. AT tho timo of General Fremont's death ho was engaged upon tho manuscript of a paper for tlio Century's forthcoming series on tho California gold hunters. It was to bo entitled " Finding Paths to California," and was not only to deal with tho several exploring expeditions, but to narrate tho writer's intimate connection with tlio ovonta which led to tho conquest and occupation of tho territory. Tho work will bo promptly continued by Mrs. Freemont. A lino portrait of General Fremont from a dugurroo- typo of '49 and ; f>0 will appear in tlio September number of tho Century, along with portraits of Commodores Sloutli aud Stockton, "Duke" Gwin, and Governor Burnett, in au article giving account of "How California Came into tho Union." SAYS tho LeMurs Sentinel: "The enterprising citizens of Algona havo raised over $3,000 to maintain a normal school for the next two years. They will soouro an able faculty and operate u good school." CONGRESS declared tho seat vacant which Brcckcnridgo of Arkansas has boon holding, on account of Clayton being shot. That is tho way to treat the holders of fraudulent credentials. by tho house of representatives dooms tho pledge of tho republican party BO far ns that portion ot congress is concerned, but there is a steadily growing fooling, which undoubtedly has somo foundation, that in tlio south, whoro the operations of tho laws, It is supposed, will act most forcibly, Us provisions will bo ignored, and become a dead letter. Mr. Mills of Texas made tho remark in connection with the subject at Issue which is significant as allowing how ho regarded tho measure from this standpoint. Ho intimated that there would be a greater number of dead federal officials than there has been heretofore, should tho act become a law. This assertion seems to strike vory near tho truth, to judge from tho extromo.bltter- ness and unprecedented rancor that has attended its discussion everywhere, and upon all occasions. Should the federal election bill bo- come a law It is high timo that .wo settle tho question of whether a third era of nullification is to bo inaugurated. If there is to be discordant friction simply because South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, und other states cannot nullify and wipe out tho colored vote and thereby give her white vote from four to eight times tho representation of the same number in population in tho north' IT now appears that Jim, Miller's great sensation wus, after all, only a bogus affair, and not very creditable to either his brain or heart. Instead of his little slip in counting tho votes for Slrublo giving tho nomination to Perkins in tho ElovonUj district by mistake, it cut no figiljl' batover. This may bo vory palnfujL.' \Miller, who did not rest till ht^.,^ advertised to tho state that ho was practically tho only Sac county delegate, au old-timer in putting up conventions, and wus about to make everybody fool terribly cut up by retiring from politics, But in fact Mr. Miller was not tho wholo Sao delegation. Tho other seven had votes also in tho convention, and they had consulted beforehand and decided that they would not all go to Strublo in any event, Four of them woro for Perkins, und Miller's miscount hud nothing to do with tho nomination, His frosh letter has made Mr. Perkins no ond of annoyunco, for tho democrats havo all joined in to show that ho IB tho holder of stolen goods. But otherwise it amounts to nothing except to show an amazing vanity and luck of sense. Tho only commendable thing in H is Miller's intontion to retire from politics, which probably, llko tho rest, Is untrue. A IIKNEVOLENT gentleman named Henry Lamb of Rochester, N. Y., has for a series of years offered prizes of $500 and $200 for essays by medical ox- ports on practical sanitary questions. Ono of theso has lately boon sout to tho press general ly and la worthy of gratuitous advertisement. It is on titled "Sanitary and Economical Cook- Ing." Tho essay, or book rathor, was ono of 70 selected by somo of tho lead- Ing profosionul mon in tho United States.

'So far as tho defeat of prohibition Is concerned, the sympathies of South Carolina, and tho most of the southern states would bo with federal government, and also with centralization in tho ensuing results, and now it remains to bo soon whether 'tho south will love states' rights more, or whiskey and tho so- called personal liberty less. * * * Good political engineering was shown in tho preparation und passage of tho silver bill, which seems to give general satisfaction on both sides of the Atlantic as a compromise measure, and it will havo a tendency to strengthen tho republican party. Of course, Texas is ably represented in congress. Not all of her legislators aro In the habit of blowing out the gas. Mr. Crain has had a difficulty with the Washington correspondent of tho St. Louis Republican.

It is a fair presumption, however, that if Mr. Crain remains on the floor of tho house during tho pendency of an Important vote, Mr. O'Brien will scarcely report him absent. * * * Tho Bohrlng sea controversy is absorbing a great deal of public attention just now. England is protesting that tho United States must not seine Canadian poachers during tho pendency of the negotiations, and convorsly Undo Sam in insisting that she must keep her thieving sealers out of tho Bearing sea during tho same period. Like a couple of old fogy doctors each one poo-poos at tho other's suggestions, but Blalna is too much for his lordship. The fact must bo apparent to all that, if Canadian soalors aro allowed to tako tho seals during the pendency of tho negotiations, they will probably havo plenty of time •o destroy everyone in existence, for England manifests no apparent desire to adjust tho matter. Tho truth of the negotiations immediately ceased when Mr, Blaino entered tho cabinet.

WESLEY, Aug. 5.—Alcinus Ward, horn March if. 1813, in Underbill, Chlttendon county) Vt., died at Wesley, Aug. 2, 1890. Married Miss Ann Eliza Dillon, Oct. 8, 188?. Moved west to Bradford county, Pa., in 1888, where most of his children were born. Moved again west to Jo Davis county, 111., in 1856, then west to Kossuth county in 1889, with his children, eight in all, with his son-in-law, residing here 21 years. He worked and lived to a ripe old age, leaving to mourn his loss his faithful wife and children. Mr. Ward was 77 years old when he died. The funeral services took place at Wesley, in the M. R church, conducted by Rev. Wolf, Baptist minister of Algona. The funeral was ono of the largest ever held in Wesley; the church was filled to its utmost capacity by old friends and neighbors. His children, William Chandler, John Arthur, Mrs. Ford, Mrs. Glddlngs. and Mrs. Abnor Flack, and their families were all present, sixty in all, with his great-grandchildren. Mr. Ward was a man who was well liked by all who knew him. Ho was a man of a religious turn of mind, belonging at ono timo, in tho state of Vermont, to tho Congregational church. After moving from that neighborhood ho united with tho Baptist church. Remaining- a few years with tho Baptists, ho united with tho M. E. church, His religious views woro very liberal, having, a great lovo for everybody. He had been having vory poor health by spells, but always bore up under his sickness with the greatest of patience. Mr. and Mrs. Ward wore married nearly 63 years. Thoro were born to them eleven children, eight boys and throe girls. Four boys preceded thoir father and woro waiting his coming. Tho remainder of his children all reside in Kossuth county at tho present time. Mr. Ward was ono of tho early settlers in this county, coming horo with his family and threo sons-in-law, J. H. Ford, W. P. Giddlngs, and Abnor Flack, in a sort of colony. They closed up the last homestead in section 98, 27. He planted, a grovo on his homestead, ono of tho finest in tho county, that will stand as a monument to his memory.
