Co-incident with the annual announcement that the Michigan peach c*op will fee a total failure comes the news that U:e price of coal has gone up. In this instance it is claimed that the advance was made necessary in order to protect individual operators against Increased freight rates of the railroads. The fact that evidence is wanting of any increase in freight rates seems immaterial. Neither is it noted that the coal miners are receiving any advance for digging the coal out of the ground beyond the point to which they have been squeezed during the past number of years. It would be quite as unlikely that the coal barons would perform this act of justice as that they should be guilty of telling the truth about the advance in price. The cost of producing coal, as compared with the price paid by the consumer, is but a very small percentage. There is no good reason why there should be any advance in price. The fact is, it Is the same old story. The coal mines of the United States are in the bands of a monopoly second only, perhaps, to the Standard oil fraud, and the advance in price is nothing short of a desire on the part of the coal mine owners to exact a greater profit from consumers. It becomes a serious question whether the time has not come for governmental interference in a matter that is of vital concern to all the people. Sooner or later it will come to this, as it has with the railroads and other things controlled by immense and greedy corporations, wherein thepeopleare directly affected, and in which they are entitled to service at a reasonable profit. Our representatives in congress could be vastly more useful to their constituents if they •would give these matters more attention, instead of frittering away their time in tariff and other debates made chiefly for political purposes. Sam. Clark is opposed to an early state convention for the ndteination of state officers, and these are the reasons he gives for the faith that is in him: "Some are urging the Iowa republican state committee to call the state convention early. If republicans will consider the case properly they will see that instead the wise thing to do is to call the convention late and when the national campaign is so well under way that all Iowa republicans will be wanned np and enlisted in that fight so thoroughly tfcal no one will be disposed to take up needless Sghte and divisions about the state issue of prohibition. Some on one side and Uie other will want to do this if the convention is held early and before the ranks are all formed and marching on national lines. There is nothing the state candidates thev are secretary of state, auditor, treasurer, railway commissioner, and supreme judge- can do as factors in the campaign by an early nomination which will equal the advantages that will come to the party from a late convention." theKeeley cafe a naming. The trouble with that fellow is that he was doctoring for tie wrong malady. He should have taken something to care the gam h*bit Barrell of the Washington Press will get himself into tremble if he isn't careful. He says that " on Tuesday all Washington ladies wore breeches. That is, Dutchman's breeches. Tbe woods were searched for these pretty posies." Gov. Fifer was renominated by the Illinois republicans last week. He'had a \valk-awav. Kansas republicans send John J. Ingalls as a delegate to the national convention. It is announced that Ingalls has again entered the political arena. The warring democratic factions in Louisiana have made np and compromised their differences. Tbe state central executive committees will be reorganized and divided equally between the two factions, and the split will be healed in a few days. This little effusion comes naturally under the heading of " spring poetry:" " At, spring Is here—that Is to sav. It was here just the other day: ' But it IB gone—that Is to sar. It had gone just the other d"ar: And ere this poem may appear Spring is—was—has been—may be—here." "A week of sunshine," says the Des Moines Xews, "would make a" paradise of Iowa." It is time for winter to get out of that lap. IS THIS NEIGEBOBEOOD. THE HIVKU L.ANDS. The prospect for relief to the river land settlers is by no means flattering, and the vexed question seems no nearer a solution than ever. A Washington dispatch of the 2nd says: " Senator Allison, from the committee on public lands, has reported favorably the house amendment to the bill for the relief of the Des Moines river land settlers. The report is voluminous and appropriates $500,000 on the express condition that it is to be accepted in Iowa in full discharge of every claim, obligation and demand. It also provides that no more of the $500,000 be used than is appropriated by the state of Iowa for the same purpose, it being the object of the commission to have equal appropriations made by congress and the state of Iowa." This plan, if adopted by congress, can have no other effect than to close the doors against the settlers, and make it impossible for them to ever get the relief which they seek, and which is in justice their right. It is useless for congress to expect the state of Iowa to do for the settlers what the government ought to perform. Most of the settlers have used up the best portions of their lives on these lands, in the vain hope, as it now seems, of getting what belonged to them. Their dealings were from the first with the government, and no amount of reasoning can convince anybody that the state of Iowa is in any measure bound to reimburse the settlers for the blunders of the government officials. The Messenger correctly remarks that "the Dollivor bill should puss. The government ought to stand behind the homestead certificates of Abraham Lincoln with at least the common business integrity which is required of humble citizens," While you are talking about mud, see bow they are fixed over at Britt, according to the Hancock Signal: "Sam. Storgeon pre-empted a section of main street in Britt, Saturday. To make sure of bis location, he left the top of his buggy sticking out of the mud." How is this, Bro. Bailey? Are you going to sit quietly and permit Bro. Bush to " rub it in" after that fashion? State Oil inspector Dunn and his deputy have been made defendants in a damage suit for ?C,000 at Cedar Rapids. In December last J. B. Thatcher of Tipton suffered the loss of his barn by fire, which resulted from the explosion of a kerosene lamp. It is alleged that the oil had been inspected and certified as legal or 108 degrees flash test and that in fact it was only 102 degrees flash test, which the law requires the state inspector to reject An important question is raised in this suit, that of whether the inspection was properly and legally made. Tbe case will no doubt turn legally on that point, and if it is shown that Inspector Dunn failed in his duty in this respect, large damages in this and other cases are likely to follow. Some accounts say that the inspection at Cedar Rapids has not been very thorough, while at other points it is said the work has done. been well and properly It is said that a man at Emmetsburg has brought suit against the Milwaukee railway company. It seems while riding on a freight train a short time since he was carried a mile and a half past the station and claims it was worth 1200 to walk back. If he had to take the wagon road for it in the present mud, his claim cannot be considered excessive. IS HKSl'ONSIHJYK. This story on "our Phil." has gained some circulation: "A cureless policeman of Laguayra, "Venezuela, put u bullet through the tail of U. B. Consul Philip C. Hanna's Sunday coat. Hanna must have gotten into the fuss through taking the udvico of the Lu"Verne News to put on u plug hat and go out and atop the rebellion." The report lacks confirmation, and yet it ia not altogether unlikely that there is something of truth in the yarn. If BO the fault will bo laid at the door of Bro. Platt of LuVorno. The News man is himself known to be a good all- around fighter. Not unlike some of the famous generals of the war of tho rebellion, ho never knows when ho is whipped, und even if he did he would never cry quits; hence it was just like him to advise Phil, to waits; out and put a stop to tho South American rebellion. That's what ho would do if ho were in PJiil.'s place, arid ho sees no inconsistency in stirring up Kossuth's attenuated representative at Luguayra to put a stop to tho nonsense in un offhand and practical sort of way. Bro. 'Platt may be at times indiscreet, but ho is never lacking in norvo, and he would probably be willing to sacrillco tho proverbial first wife's relations rather than have it understood that he or any of his friends had been bulldozed. However he should not lose eight of the fact that our Phil, is in South America primarily for tho betterment of his physical ^condition, that Js to say, for his health. There is Illinois republicans, in their state convention last week, instructed their delegates to the national convention for Harrison, and they will vote as a unit. The Wisconsin and Michigan democratic conventions instructed for Cleveland. There is little doubt that Harrison and Cleveland will be the nominees. dipt. Head of Jefferson is out in a long letter in which he says he is not a candidate for congress in this district. The statement is wholly gratuitous, as no one except the captain even entertained a remote notion that he was in the race. Tho Hun/boldt Blade thus notices Dolph's departure: J. Dolph, who disgraced Harclin county and the republican party for two terms in the legislature has at last come to the conclusion that he ought to do something to repay the party for the honors so unworthily bestowed. After long deliberation he has decided that he can do the most good by directing his muundcrings in the Eldora Ledger, which he owns, against tho said party. Ho therefore announces that the Ledger will desert tho republican party und support the third, or so-called "peoples' party." The Hampton Recorder is not quite satisfied because of the defeat of Col. Boutin for re-election, and intimates that tho outcome of the election was the result of a job. Iowa is not the only state which is having inoro or less trouble in solving tho liquor problem, Tho whiskey men of Mississippi are up in arms against the new prohibitory law of that stuto. While the new law will prohibit saloons in most of the smull towns it still permits tho license of suloons in tho cities, although under increased restrictions, which will prohibit a good many saloons even there. But the saloonkeepers will fight tho law just as strenously us they fight tho Iowa liquor law. The most hotly-con tested city election known in years occurred iu St. Paul last week Tuesday. Tho fight was made by tho democrats against tho field, and the republicans carried tho day by a good majority, electing their mayor and a majority of the city council. This is tho first time in 20 yours that the republicans have curried tho city. The "city hall gang" have been in possession of the offices for a long time, but huve at lust been routed out. A quarter section of wild prairie one and a half miles from Corivitb sold last week for §30 per acre. Ex-Gov.

Vincent and Ringland are behind the State bank of "West Bend, recently organized with a capital of £50.000. They will erect a fine brick building for their business. Fort Dodge has decided thus early upon a rousing Fourth of July celebration and are making active preparations to that end. That is the way to do things when it is desired to do them well. Begin early and make a success of it. A Humboldt boy, Elmer Ellsworth, attended the opening of Sample's great "one boss" circus last week and, like most other boys, concluded that he too could turn a summersault as well as the professional tumbler. He tried it and in the resulting fall broke his lew between the knee and the ankle. Abe. Funk says that "from personal observation the writer can testify that farmers in southern Iowa are suffering worse than our own. That section shows evidence of more rain, and whereas in ordinary springs field operations are some two weeks in advance of the situation here, at this time if there is any material difference it is in our favor." The Journal says that Henry Randall left West Bend last week without bidding anyone good bye. He also left a number of unpaid bills behind him as keepsakes and sold a barn which was mortgaged to other parties, and wrought considerable all-round cussedness before leaving. As selling mortgaged property is a penitentiary offense Henry will, in all probability, make himself scarce in the vicinity of the Bend for some time to come. The Elmore Eye has been lookino- up the matter and tells us that the origin of the name of the town of Ledyard has long been a matter of conjecture to many. The name of the principal stockholder of the New York Central railway is Ledyard, and his owning a number of sharesof North western stock, which later became joint owner of the townsite, the town was named in his honor. The story of the town being tervieer certain gentlemen connected with the new railway project. The proposed station will be about two miles from Armstrong and both stores will probably pull up and move to the new railroad town Ambrose A. Call has opened his second addition to Bancroft by removing the fence on the west and north. He has had trees set along both sides of the street and will probably grade up the streets _ before putting the plat on record. This will be a valuable addition to our fast grow ing city. . THEY TRAPPED THEMSELVES. Two Hecent Coses Where the Wrong .Man Got Caught. Webster City Herald: A strange accident and one that may prove serious, if not fatal, to the victim occurred early Wednesday morning at Homer. John Brock, a dealer in general merchandise at that place, has lately suffered great annoyance and considerable loss by having his store burglarized, presumably by local toughs. A short time ago he arranged a trap gun. placed in such a position that it would be discharged by a person who entered the store, and loaded it with Np. 6 shot. No burglars have visited him since that time, but this morning he himself got the " dose" he had prepared for someone else. He was called by a customer early Wednesday morning to go to the store and, probably forgetting about the gun, discharged" it and the whole load entered bis hip. He was only about two feet from the muzzle of the gun when it was discharged, so that an ugly wound was the result, although the bone is not broken: Mr. Brock is suffering great pain, but the wound will not, probably, prove fatal. A story of a similar a'ccident on the same day comes from Owasi. a small town near Iowa Falls: Frank Huffman, a farmer, suspected some of stealing his corn and he accordinglv laid a trap for the thief, a shot gun loaded with paper wads, rigged up in the crib with the muzzle pointing to the door. A string fastened to the door and the gun's trigger completed- the arrangement, and the person who opened the crib door would receive the full charge. Huffman forgot the trap he had set when he went to the crib for corn the next morning, and when he opened the door the contents of the gun barrel was emptied into his abdomen, making a bad wound and one that the doctors think may prove fatal. The wad cannot be located and fears of blood poisoning are entertained. Iowa at the World's Fair. The official architects of the Iowa world's fair buildings, Messrs. Josselyn & Taylor of Cedar Rapids, are at work on the plans for the Iowa building and this week the plans will probably be decided upon finally. The old Jackson park pavillion, which is to be used by Iowa, is already a sightly structure, and is without doubt the finest location THE YEAR OF THE BOOM, A Becord of What is Jtoing in Algona in the Building Line Up to JJate* A Little Something About the Bad Roads —Miscellaneous Local Odds and Ends. Tbe past week has witnessed the demolition of the old building next to the cigar factory, the material of which goes into a building on State street for Jas. Taylor's temporary use. This building was put up 21 years ago, and we believe was first occupied as a grocery store by Wildey & Marvin. To enumerate the tenants since then would be more of a job than we shall undertake. Mr. Lund will move to what has long been known as the Ford corner on State street, though these quarters will be but temporary. Messrs. Hay & Rice will move their office to a lot next to the deary building, but may not use it longer for office purposes. These removals are to be made to make room for the new opera house, which will be erected this summer by Ambrose A. Call, and which, let it be said occe more, will be 47 feet and 10 inches frontage by 120 feet deep, and two stories high. The walls will be of brick, and 18 inches thick, with a two-inch air space. Outside of the court house we believe these will be the only 18-inch walls in town. The new building will contain upward of 300.000 brick. While no date is set for its completion, Mr. Call tells us he hopes to have it done in time so the opera- house company can give its grand opening during the week of the county fair, in September. S. I. Plumley has the contract for all the stone and brick work for the opera house. We make this correction in the interest of all parties concerned. The Spencer paper, which last week said that T. H. Conner was the contractor, was in error. Just how that paper came to make the statement is not known. Mr. Conner positively assures us that it was not through him, and he is quite as anxious to have the matter set right as anyone, since he has been placed in a false light in the matter. It took W. F. Carter and his force of help the last three days of last week to assigned to any state, will be remodeled into The building an exhibition hall 80x126 feet in size, which will be artistically trimmed with the products of the state. A music gallery will be built around the room. The new part of the building will be added to the west end, and will be an ornate structure 60 by 100 feet in size, two stories high. There will be a round tower at each of the corners of the front, and between them a spacious porch leading from the driveway. At the right of this porch a small parlor will open which will be used as a waiting room. On the left will be the ladies' parlors opening off a wide hall Back of them will be the rooms set apart for the commission and bv them the gentlemen's parlors with reading and smoking rooms and a broad porch on the lake front, where can sit and take in the view as smoke. An intelligence bureau also be established on this floor the second floor will be a large they they will On assem get his big stock of groceries, crockery, etc., moved to his new quarters on the Ford corner, but he is now there and is just as ready and willing to wait on his customers as he ever was at the old stand. The contract for the Ferguson-Hoxie building on State street was let last week to O. W. McMurray, and the work will begin at once. Preparatory to this the stone wall on the west line of Mr. Lessing's building which rests practically on the surface of the ground, will be taken out and a wall seven feet deep and two feet thick put in its place. The old wall would never do for such a building as the new one will be to rest on, hence the necessity for a more substantial foundation, is done the brick on Before any of this the west side of the Lessing building will have to be taken down, and this work was begun last week. Messrs. Lund & Ryan and Hay & Rice will occupy offices on the ground floor of the new opera when completed. house building A man out in the Black Hills paid $5 for a pac-kago of the Keeley cure for the to- bucco habit and used it according to directions.

Lee, and says: " The Freeman is pained to learn this morning that Bro. F. Q. Lee of the Graphic remains so seriously ill that his family are much alarmed over his condition, and that without a speedy change for the better the chances for recovery seem against him." Algona people will recall the fact that Mr. Lee was a prominent figure at the editorial meeting last winter, and will hope his recovery is not far distant. A minature "slycoon" struck Ledyard at 7:30 Saturday morning, totally demolishing the new store building being erected by E. V. Foster. The carpenters had just finished the roof and the entire front had been left open. The wind made kindling wood of the entire structure, entailing a considerable loss on Mr. Foster. Eight men were working on tho building when it went down, but fortunately no one was injured. Mr. Foster at once set the carpenters at work on another building. We glean from the Eye. Spirit Lake Beacon: Mrs. Abbie Garner Sharp has bought the cabin on the old Pillsbury place from whieh she was taken into captivity by tho Indians at tho time of tho massacre in 1857, to§ ether with the lot on which it stands, he has had the house repaired, at considerable expense, and is already occupying tho same, A son and his wife recently from St. Paul, are with her for the present. Mrs. Sharp prizes her purchase very highly. That is historic ground, and the cabin one of the prominent points ,of interest in this state. At Fort Dodge last Friday M. E Brown and Henry Earth had a little altercation. Earth called Brown some harsh names and Brown slapped Earth. Then Earth had Brown arrested and Judge Hamilton fined him ?1 and costs, amounting to §6 in all, for assault Brown then had Earth arrested for using obscene language and Mayor Hyatt fined him §8 and costs. Barth bly hall which will be hung with, maps and charts, giving information regarding the state, and will be used for all general meetings. Back of this hall will be a number of rooms devoted to the press of the state, where the reporters may always beat home and find ample opportunity to write in quiet. All about the building, where it can be done without destroying the effect, balconies will be placed overlooking both grounds and lake.

There is no denying that this is a muddy season, unusually so, and there is neither good policy nor wisdom in attempting to disguise the facts. We are "in it," not only metaphorically bul literally. The roads, both in town and country, are simply horrible, and the fact that much Iowa land has been fencod-during the past two years makes it all the more difficult to getany where by team. Numerous instances are related of teams becoming stuck in the mud with only empty wagons behind them. We know of one case where a man with a horse and cart became "stalled" and was compelled to unhitch to get out. One man told us of a wagon he saw by the roadside with only the tops of the wheels sticking out the greater portion of the vehicle actually buried in the mud. From what is seen in town it can be understood that these stories are by no means the result of fertile imagination, but on the other hand more likely to be the solid ' v, V s n ? t a P leiisant situation, " hiltcan , tbecul>ed raust be en" so we have been told, and it is f** 011 t0 te £ e a P hi lo of the surroundings and be satis- pass that way can get the correct time besides witnessing ail article which tho4 perhaps never saw before, but was once as important as is the er's regulator today. The Xew Railroad* From official sources it is learned that the contract was let last Saturday for the grading of the new railroad across the northern part of tbia county. This contract included the territory between Forest City and Armstrong, a distance of about 45 miles The grading from Armstrong to Estherville, it is understood, will soon be let and the dirt will be flying along the entire distance before very lonp Practically the only delay will be in the sub-letting of the work to the smaller contractors. Incidentally it 5s noted that not a few people who have property interests along the route of the new road would like very much to know- where the new stations are going to be located, but thus far that valuable information seems to be confined to those who are on the inside, figuratively speaking. / Live Stock Market. This being a season when many farmers and others are interested in the live stock market, we quote yesterday's prices in Chicrgo: The market was rather slow, especially on a light run. Cows and heifers and fine export bulls were selling fully as strong as at any time, while the prices for Texans showed up equally as well as at any time. In the stocker and feeder line the business was fair and unchanged. Natives sold for $3.80@4.75: stockers and feedei-s, S2.75@3.7o: cows and heifer stock, S2.(>0@3.oO.

A Modern Monto Crlsto Who Promised to Do Great Things In DCS Molnes-Snld lie "Was Worth Millions. For some time past several newspapers of Des Moines have devoted considerable space to the alleged mysterious advent of a multi-millionaire in that city and telling what great things he proposed to do for the city. A few days ago this alleged Croesus or Monte Cristo presented at one of the banks an alleged check for a million dollars on a bank in Bristol, Eng., where it was said the bulk of his fortune was. The document raadethecashier'shair stand, but it was started on the way for collection. An enterprising evening paper, which somewhat doubted the genuineness of the alleged "millionaire and his check, sent a cable dispatch to the Bristol bank asking for the financial standing of Rev. Frederick J. A. Stiles. The bank replied that Stiles was to them unknown. The evening paper adds: " This information pricks a bubble which has been innocently expanding with increased iridescence for several weeks. The Rev. Frederick John Stiles may be the modest possessor of fabulous sums of money somewhere, but his great fortune has escaped the notice of the banker of Bristol, where it has been amassed. The probability is that Bro. Stiles has either deceived somebody else or that the reporters who discovered him have been made the victims of an April fool joke that lasted all through the month of showers. Ever since Mr. Stiles, in answer to Presiding Elder Rees' advertisement in the Christian Advocate, appeared upon the scene and was assigned to a vacant pulpit at Peru, Iowa, bis quiet and. modest demeanor has been such as to justify the fishy stories the newspaper gudgeons have been retailing about him. He came to Des Moines without a dollar and ho has conducted all his operations on borrowed money. His two drafts of $1,000,000 each on a Bristol bank, and several minor drafts have not produced a penny of British gold, and it was unkind to accuse him of being such a Pluto as these journalistic hopefuls have made him out to be. It has subjected the poor man to no end of annoyance from the real estate men, and sponsors of big enterprises, and all sorts of cranks." Rev. Stiles was seen and denied the above to the correspondent. He claims he is worth several million dollars and that he is neither a fool nor a crank. He says his checks will be honored all right and that his.plans will be carried out* The latest information is to the effect that the facts are as conjectured by the Des Moines paper, and that the millions said to be possessed by this visionary gentleman are in his mind rather than to his account in that English around us it will be found tha the' u-e had another card to play, however. He had Brown arrested under* the city ordinance for assault and Mayor Hyatt assessed him $6 more. Further developments will be awaited with interest. Bancroft Register: E. B.
