J. KtrsSEtt declines to accept the democratic norfltnatiofi for congress in this district, though fully endorsing tho piatfottrt on which he Wits invited to stand. He is In the east, arid it is said business tit 1 rangemeiits. prevented his coining west to make the canvass. The central coinwittee yesterday notn- inated L L. Woods of Port Dodge to fill tho vacancy. THIS question wEether Gen. Kennedy of Ohio would print his remarkable speech in which ho scored Senator Quay so vigorously is settled, The speech appears In the Record, but shorn of somo of its original fire. He still denounces Quay, but In more parliamentary terms. His original speech wns one of tho bitterest attacks ever made by anyone on a member of his own party, but it has not proved enough to force Quay to seek an Investigation into tho charges against him. He enjoys with Payne nnd Brlce of Ohio the distinction of being ofrald of facing an an honest and open tribunal. THOSE who ai-e acquainted with the Sioux City corn palace plans for this season report that no previous effort compares In any way with tho exhibition to bo made Sept, 26 to Oct. 10. Tho corn palace will be on a scale of magnificence never before attempted, and the other decorations and attractions of tho western metropolis will correspond. Tho corn palace is tho groat original invention of Iowa, and the best advertisement over given for tho agricultural resources of tho state. Every patriotic Bf?izon who lives in northwestern Iowa should make it part of his business to support tho enterprise. All that will require is his presence at Sioux City. Sioux City has a way of attending to tho rest. Gov. LABRABEE recently contributed an article to the New York Independent on our railway policy. In it ho made the following statement: "Tho property of tho railroad companies has during the past two years kept pace with thn^ of the people. Their gross earnings were over $1,000,000, and their net earnings over §800,000 more in 1889 than during tho year previous. Tho present assessed value of all tho railroad property of the state is $42,868,000, and the not earnings of tho companies in 1889 were $11,885,000. It will thus bo soon that the net revenue of tho railroads of Iowa is almost one-third of their assessed vulue. No other proper- ty'in this state brings such largo returns." It is evident from these figures that his claim is correct when ho asserts that Iowa has done railroad corporations no injustice. IT is reported that tho fight for free binding twine will bo bitter in congress, and that it is not at all assured that tho senate amendment will prevail. In tho senate it passed easily, as nearly all tho western republicans voted with the democrats. But tho trust has a big lobby, and tho house has shown all along less willingness to treat the tariff fairly. There is no more powerful or unscrupulous monopoly which gets benefit from the tariff than tho twine trust, and what It would do if it hod the power was shown a year ago. Only tho prompt and vigorous action of tho farmers averted a terrific steal then, and ihat success was only temporary if tho trust is still allowed to shelter itself 'rom open competition. Tho western man who votes against free binding twine is a traitor to the intorests ho 'eprosents, and if tho house defeats tho senate amendment it will happen only .hrough tho failure of western men to stand by their constituents. SENATOR SHEKMAN is anxious that reciprocity bo extended to Canada. This was Congressman Butterworth's den, and should commend itself to all nterosts. it is true Canada is a big exporter of agricultural products. Dur- ng tho last fiscal year she sent §18,593,000 worth to tho United States. But it ,s also true that she is a big importer of agricultural products, and during tho same year tho United States sent to her $22,833,000 worth. Thus in farm trade ,hero is a balance in our favor of over M,000,000 a year. A great hue and cry las boon raised about her barley, hay, ggs, and horses, all of which are sold n large quantities in the eastern mar- tot. But nothing is said of our corn, flour, wheat, cotton, tobacco, and hog products, which aro sold in return to lor. Why not buy her produce if wo my in our own, especially with so wealthy a balance in our favor? But 'arm products are not our only ox- chungo with Canada. She has immense resources In lumber and coal to trado for what wo have to soil. Tho tariff only operates to make things dear to icr whore her market is remote from source supply, but near ours, and dour to us where our market is remote 'rom our source of supply, but near hers. Trade with Canada would bring us all that annexation would that Is worth having. All this country wants ,o annex Is, as Bluino puts it, to " annex trade." t~ THE ro-olection of Reed by an increased majority is testimony of tho 'act that tho people like strong men. Reed is a man of nervo. Whatever ho champions he makes powerful by his own will. If ho didn't "stamp out tho Blaino idea" us he said he would, it was because Bluino, too, is a man of nerve and a man much nearer tho pub- lie thought. Like McKlaley, Reed is a narrow man. Ho sees a few things only, but on those things ho foousos the rays of a keen intellect and unbending detormiuutton. He is un intellectual * JjQcrnt. In /Inauciul measures ho tOrds it over our wavering westo^ con- Undent us thu southern urisk ?0 LOAN- ftnd the avowed purpose of preceding" republican ndministrfitions? f he B«6- oeSB of such men ft8 lieed is fortunate. Just as the stern, unbending, and im- peMous Calhoun is a prouder figure in American history than the ''fallen leader" .whose genius cannot efface his truckling Spirit, ao are the tteede and McKlnleyS more entitled to the admiration of even their opponents than the perhaps more liberal-minded but wavering, conciliating, half-hearted advo- cates'ot reform who carry water so successfully oh both shoulders that they count for nothing but the instruments through which the policies of others are made effective. What the west Wants is not the defeat of the Heeds. It wants some Heeds of its own. IN connection with Bishop Hennes- Sy's late order that parochial schools must be established by every priest, domes the report, from Dubuque that Rev. Mr. Ryan, who has only been in this country eighteen months, has preached a sermon in Bishop Hennessy's presence on the public school system, in Which ho said: "Who ore the graduates of your free schools? Show me a graduate of a free school and I will show you an educated blackguard, fair on tho outside, but rotten to the core." Great indignation was expressed by his congregation, and will be felt all over by intelligent Catholics, many of whom, have educated their children at the public schools. IF any man is touching life at any more points than Geo. T. Williams, editor, banker, theatrical manager, collector of curiosities, hero of libel suits, victim of personal assaults, and all- around rustler of Ida Grovo, ho is still to bo heard from. George's name has adornod the historic record of northwestern Iowa so much already that a new sensation seems hardly possible, but a now one is really up, and apparently a moro serious one than anything previous in his erratic career. At present ho is under indictment for sot- ting fire to a rival opera houso in Ida Grove. Morrow, who confessed to have assisted him, has boon sentenced by Judge Macombor to two yoars in tho penitentiary, and Williams is making ready for a hard fight. Ho is out under $5,000 bonds, and has two Sioux City legal firms nnd one Ida Grovo firm engaged in his defense. George is a hail fellow well mot, and his friends will believe nothing vicious of him till it is clearly provon. MAJ. LACY of Oskaloosa was ronpml- uated for, congress by acclamation. Ho has been a strong man on tho Iowa delegation, and during his first term has won a hearty recognition. The division among his opponents insures his return from tho Sixth, for a long time an almost sure democratic district. THE city council of Monticello have adopted an ordinance licensing operating a "buss." Editor Doxsco of tho Express finds that Webster defines a "buss" as a rude"or playful kiss, and comments on tho new ordinance: Wo have no doubt tho councilman had iu mind tho ruder kind when they enacted the ordinance. Wo do not think they would interfere with that Innocent salute with tho lips which Is as old as sentiment: " A Mas of youth and love, And beauty all concentrating, like rays Into one focus kindling from above." And when they declared that "any person violating tho provisions of this ordinance * * * * by operating such buss * * without the license as above provided, upon conviction before the mayor * * shall bo punished by a fine of not less than 15 nor exceeding $50 * * ," they must have had In contemplation what Popo calls a "smacking buss" "or that well defined distinction of tho poet, who says: " Kissing anil bussing differ both In this, We buss our wantons, but our wives wo kins." While tho ordinance is not so plain as it might bo, yot we do not think It will bo so strictly construed as to put the ban of condemnation upon all "balmy seals of soft affection." The city marshal has probably been instructed to overlook any quiet and velvety lip prints which may fall beneath his observation, but those who indulge In tho rousing buss, tho smacking buss and rude kiss, or who, in tho language of tho ordinance, may bo found "operating a buss" aro liable to bo arraigned for disturbing tho peace and dignity of tho town of Monticello. THE greatest mind reading feat on record was performed in Chicago Thursday. Alexander Johnstono was blindfolded at tho Auditorium hotel, took a team and drove through the crowded streets to the Grand Pacific, went to tho hotel register, found a name selected by tho committee, and wrote it on a piece of papor without mistake, Tho whole test was conducted by responsible citizens and no fraud was possible. The strain on Johnstono was BO groat that he began to cry when it was over, and within a few minutes was taken with congestion of tho brain and became delirious, He said ho should never again try tho experiment. " REPUIILICAN state conventions," according to tho Carroll Herald, "have dealt with tho McKIiiloy tariff in glittering generalities, but thoro ig a truo ring and an old-time heartiness about tho way thoy approve Blaino's idoas." TIIE gospol is omitted by the Gato City about as often as by anybody in Iowa. Hero is a sample; "If nny democrat or republican editor PJJjjSfiJj? 3 ho only supports public men wh^jjjjpPlry opinion ho agrees with, ho is elthera fool or ho lies, and Uo knows ho lies." 'THE inevitable tendency is, I think, toward increasing tho free list," said Blaino in his groat speech. And tho froo list will be increased to those countries which increase thoir froo list toward us. That is reciprocity, and that means increased and profitable commerce. THE reciprocity amendment of Senator Aldrlch to tho McKlnloy bill provides that tho president, whenever ho is satisfied any country which soils us sugar, molasses, coffee, tea, aud hides Is discriminating against our fara products, may suspend tho froo importation of those articles and order tho collection of duties until our products uro allowed froo admission. Tho amendment don't go fur, but it is good as for as it goes. * THE tariff bill passed tho sonulo and comes back to the house with several Important amendments. One is Senator Aidrich's reciprocity addition, another Senator Plumb's proposed pormauont twin commission, another tho ohnugo iu tho binding twluo schedule which admits twino froo of duty. Tho somite appointed a conference committee and instructed it to stand flruily by the amendments. Is 1 Blolne lives he will bo tho republican nominee in '02. IN THIS MEiaJBQBHOOD.

Company V nt tho Intcr-stato Shoot Tho big inter-stato rifle contest at Camp Douglas was held lost Thursday and Friday, and Iowa's position shows that holding out is what wins. In tho preliminary flring Iowa was ahead. In tho first day's contest she. woe second. At tho close she was fourth, But Iowa still had honors for Seagt. Shulcey of tho Fourth Bogimont mado the best individual-score, nnd won tho gold medal which Gov. Hoard pinned on his coat. Ho got 270 out of a possible 400. Tho shooting was at all distances from 200 to 600 yards, and skirmish ilri'ng. In tho latter tho boys ran and firod at regular intervals. Iowa's total was 2,21)0 out of 4,000. Minnesota made 2,384. Wisconsin 2,378, Illinois 2,330, and Michigan 2,225. In the Iowa team Capt. Cookc stands fifth with a total of 228-42 less than tho best. On tho first day's firing ho stood third on tho team of ten. On tho first day ho made tho best score mado at 000 yards, 28 out of possible 25. Tho Iowa boys did not average up as well as tho teams that had had practice, and thoy did not stand hard work as well. In the winning Minnesota team there wore only 48 points out of 400 between tho best and poorest. In tho Iowa team there were 57. Still tho contest waa close, and Iowa has reason to bo proud, while as Company I- 1 comes above the middle in the Iowa team, it too has reason to feel proud. Trouble at St. Jo. A very startling and unusual piece of news comes from St. Jo. this week, to tho effect that tho now graveyard fence had boon purposely damaged and practically ruined. Tho Livormoro Gazette says: It seems thoro has recently boon anew burying ground laid out there, on tho location of which tho people of the church had boon somewhat divided in opinion. Tho now ground was laid out, noverthelosss, and a fine fence had boon built around it, but sometime between Sunday and Monday nights this fence was sawed, hero and thoro, leaving nearly every board in it about the proper length for stove wood. Tho indications aro that there must have been quite a number engaged in it, as tho work must havo occupied somo time and some strength, a number of tho posts having been pulled from tho ground. On one of tho posts there was tacked a notice signed " White Caps," tho contents of which wo are not pro- pared to state. Considerable excitement is naturally raised by this little episode, tho outcome of which remains yet to be seen. In any event tho damaging of tho property is quite a serious mattor, or is liable to bo to tho perpetrators, if discovered. BrcnHu the World's Record, Algona now has a champion bicycle rider in Dr, Garfield. Ho mado his do- but amidst great enthusiasm yesterday morning, and besides handling his safety with skill and case, is, if tho snorting papers are correct, without a rival. It Is stated that but ono rider in tho United States Is over 70 yoars of ago, and that no man can loarn after ho Is 70. Dr. Garflold was 70 last May, ho [•ides, and ho learned in n week's time. Ho has spent throe half hours a day in tho rink in practicing for a few days, and then took a turn about tho fair ground, and now goes anywhere. Few men of his years have half Jjis vitality and agility and his maatory'of so tricky a steed as tho bicycle shows what can bo attained by well preserved old age. Public Sale of Short Horns.

Arm;, is to present the state with a tract of redwood land in Sonoma county for a park. We made inquiry of the donor and found the rnmof correct, only that he does not intend to give it to the state or to any particular municipality or society, but to trustees, for the use of the people, for posterity and for all time. This magnificent gift of 600 acres lies in Big Bottom, near the extremity of the branch of the Ban Francisco, and North Pacific railway, about one mile from the river at Guerneville. in Sonoma county, and accessible by rail from San Francisco, which is seventy miles distant. It is the last considerable tract of these big trees in this region or so near the city. Of course there are other scopes of scattered timber in the hills, scrubby in growth and out of the way. But this is a grand forest of monstrous trees, much on level land, bordered by the side of the Mount Jackson range, with tree trunks from five to fifteen feet in diameter and more than 800 feet high, intermingled With various other sorts of growth, occasional firs, laurel and other woods adding to the beauty of the spot. The donor says the gift will not be fully appreciated for the next fifty years. Then, when no other spot like it can be found in reach, his motive will be understood. The trustees will be selected about as follows; Perhaps the chairman of the Golden Gate park trustees of San Francisco; the landscape gardener of Central park, New York city; the chief justice of the supreme court of California, and a local trustee of this county. These gentlemen and their successors forever will have control under but few restrictions in the deed of trust. One •will bo that no timber shall ever be cut or trimmed unless it bo blown down. Another condition will be that the park shall not be a place for encampment, for fear of fire, and shall only be visited in daylight. There will bo drives, paths and the like, as well as many ornamental structures, and a gateway and fountains in keeping with its purpose, for which a sufficient endowment is to be placed in the hands of the trustees. The details cannot bo given for publication, nor in fact aro they completed. But it is understood that some of the work will bo done in tho time of the owner, and that he will retain control for the present and as long as he lives. Out of the 600 acres about 200, with valuable improvements, orchards, buildings, etc., are being put into condition for yielding a considerable income, and much of it is as fine land as lies in Russian river bottom. After its income may no longer be required by the family it is provided that it shall become part of the park, and the trustees will bo directed to uso such portion as may bo convenient to erect glass houses for propagating strange plants, flowers, trees and shrubs, to bo used in bordering the drives and ornamenting tho ground. It will bo seen from the sketch that tho plan is for posterity, and it will take a long while to work it out, though in the main the natural features of a wild forest aro intended to predominate always.—Cloverdale Reveille. Burled tho Choose. In the suburbs of Boston lives a merchant who is something of an epicure, and not infrequently he brings home with him from the city on his return from business somo tid-bit or other. Not long since ho found some particularly choice Roquefort cheese, rind tho day being Saturday ho took a piece homo with him for his Sunday dinner. Arrived at the station ho was met by his man with tho buggy, and in driving home ho put the bundlo on tho bottom of tho carriage, where ifc lay forgotten until the next day. At dinner ho remembered tho delicacy, and sending for Patrick, ho asked what he had done with the package of cheese which he left on the bottom of tho buggy, "Was that chase, sor?" responded Patrick, in evident surprise. "Yes, of course itw«s choose. What did you do with it?" "Well, upon mo soul, sor, it never in- tered me comprehension that it was chase. It smelled that powerful, sor, that I thought shure it wore dead, sor, and I wint and buried it, manin' no harm."—Boston Courier. Photographing » IMrd lit Its Nost. Mr. John Watson, at a meeting of the Kendal Natural History society, described the manner in which he had been ablo to procure a photograph of a woodcock sitting on its nest. Ho was walking in the neighborhood of Arnside, a village on tho shore of Morocambe bay, and observed ono of tho birds on its nest, which was placed in an open situation. Ho watched it for somo minutes, aud wished that ho had some means of transferring the picture to paper. He shortly afterward fell iu with a friend who fortunately had with him his camera. In the course of an hour and a half, during which tho bird sat as if unconscious of their presence, they secured four negatives. A picture of the nest and eggs, after the bird had been driven off, was also obtained.—New York Telegram. An Untimely Discourse. A man 60 years old was married recently in a small German town to a woman ten years his senior. Tho "youthful" bride insisted upon having a great wedding, with the addition of a "special" marriage sermon from tho lips of her beloved pastor. The groom, after useless protestations, assented to tho wishes of his future better half. His feelings,-however, can bo imagined more easily than described when the beloved pastor began his sermon with the text, "Father, forgive them, for thoy know not what they do."—New York Tribune.
