In one respect, at least. the convention is likely to be a tame aSair, and -will be rather less interesting by reason of the fact that it will be more in the nature of registerin^a foregone ewoclusMHj. A reasonable rie-ar of the sUiation is that the refusal of Blaixie to alloir the use of his name made possible the ootninatien of no oiber man than Harrison- Nothing has occurred to alter that condition of things sicoe Biaine"* acccraseement iras made and it Is not likely that be will make any other statement concerning his candidacy.

At present no table can be compiled •which irill give the exact status of each delegation. There is a notable absence of positive instructions vrhich in a measure amounts to uncertainty: and yet there are enough instructed delegations which, added to those that are known to be in strong sympathy with the present administration, puts almost beyond doubt any other than the one result. Instructions given by a state convention are usually regarded as binding only upon the four delegates- at-large, while the district delegates, unless similarly instructed, feel at liberty to disregard the instructions of their state. But the known condition of the delegations shows that the convention will consist, as a matter of fact, of representatives who are free to act in accordance with their own ideas of •what will be best for the party interests: and yet they are men who are known to possess such strong leanings toward Harrison that they will be quickly determined unless some exigency arises which cannot now possibly be foreseen. The New York Evening Post gives gome figures in which it divides the delegates as fallow*: "Instructed for Harrison, 328; not instructed but favorable to Harrison. 312; for Elaine, 50: forAlger, 24; unknown, l#i." Thus it will be seen, if that paper makes anything like a correct estimate, that as 450 votes will nominate, Harrison will go into the convention with a strong positive force at his back, and a decidedly friendly feeling among enough others to give him upwards of two- thirds of the votes, and it will not be strange if his nomination is made on the first ballot. majority, and they are coming to think that a state convention means something more than merely attending their own funeral. How moch Jhe republicans are responsible for making this coodition of things possible is a question that need not be cosed at Ibis time: but it cannot be doubted that, with the right son o: leadership acd the proper kind of men at the bead of the republican ticket, Iowa is far removed from being turned over body and boots to the democrats. This fact wijj be demonstrated later on. Kossatb county came away from the convention with as many honors as one county conld reasonably expect, C. L. Lund was on the committee on permanent organization, acd Jas. Taylor was chosen tostjcceed himself as committee man for the Tenth district. Thus the tall sycamore will guide the destinies of democracy in Kossuth for another year. THE silver plank in the democratic platform brings to mind a story which so completely fits the case that we make no effort to forbear telling it. It was in the good old days: a convention was being held, and during the reading of a platform of platitudes an old veteran who bore the scars of many a political contest gat on a back seat, and at the conclusion of each paragraph he exclaimed -with much apparent satisfaction: "That's good: That's good: It don : t mean anything"' THE DKMOCUATIC CONVENTION. The democratic state convention was held at Council Bluffs last Wednesday, at .which they selected delegates to the national convention and instructed them for Boies for president. All reports agree that this feeling was next to unanimous throughout the convention, and the instruction was passed without a dissenting voice. The name of Grover Cleveland, strange to say, was not mentioned. It is said to be the first democratic state convention in years where Cleveland's name has not been mentioned. Grover stock was down to the bottom notch. It was all for • Boies and nothing but Boies would do them. There can be no question as to the sincerity of Iowa democrats. They believe Boies is their lucky star, and they will push his name in the Chicago convention for all there is in it. With how much of success they will meet in their efforts to nominate the governor for president remains to bo seen. What sort of a complication may arise that will make possible the nomination of a western man is one of the things that cannot now be foreseen. It is claimed that the failure of Cleveland to carry his own state practically puts him out of the nice. Notwithstanding this, many states have instructed for him, and the only thing that can prevent his name going before the convention will be his own positive refusal, a contingency that is not likely to arise. In any event Iowa democrats are for Boies, and they will do their level best 'to nominate him. The committee on resolutions, after instructing for Boies and declaring for tariff reform, concluded their report • The new spring hats cover over something less than a half acre: but it is not noticed that strawberry boxes have been enlarged. Editor Bush of Garner is "agin" Dolliver, but here is what he says to his democratic friend, Bracket!: " Editor Brackett says, ' we'll help you down Dolliver this fall.' Thanks! doctor, for your disinterested offer, but we cannot work together on that line. While we hope to see Dolliver defeated for renomination, by a republican who can carry the full party vote, there is one serious and insurmountable objection, if no other, against having his seat occupied by a democrat. With a democratic majority of 150 in the present congress, it has been found impossible to secure a quorum in the house to transact business, without calling upon the small republican minority to help make a quorum. The democratic congressmen seem to have so many outside pleasures to attend to that they have no time for public business, and without a few republican members to help make a quorum public business would be at a stand still. If we can do no bettor we prefer letting Dolliver help make a quorum so that your party can continue boring gimlet holes in the McKinley tariff."

Humboldt Blade: The Carroll Herald said not long ago something about the Jefferson Bee getting ?1,000 as political boodle in congressional matters. As evidence that the Herald knows what it is talking about, it said in its last issue: " The Herald has no apologies to make to the Greene county brethren. It is fighting within party lines, which it has a perfect right to do. The democratic papers are finding grim pleasure in quoting from the Jefferson papers, but they have no words of approval for the Herald's articles. The Bee may get boodle from Capt. Head and it may again bolt a republican nominee, but we propose to let the people know what it is doing." adjourned at Fort Dodge last week be- -ause the roads were so bad that it was mpossible for litigants or witnesses to et to town. Another legislature will robably not be suffered to adjourn without taking some action to relieve the state from its wretched svstem of roads, or rather systemetic wholesale waste of work and material which might, if used intelligently, make thousands of miles of road everj- year. Fort Dodge Messenger: A pitiful sight was witnessed at the Mason City depot Tuesday. A hard featured woman and a little child, the latter not more than two years old. sat in the waiting room. The woman was drunk. She was so totally intoxicated she could not move or be moved, and the train that she meant to take pulled out without her. The child played contentedly upon the waiting room floor while the woman remained plunged in drunken stupor.

Some fault has been found with the suggestion of Ingails because he did not take an act- ire part in Kansas politics after be was defeated for the senate, but. nevertheless, there will not be a republican at the convention who will not be pieaard to hear Ingails make a speech. Sprae af the anti-Harrison men have raised the point that Ingalis, being proaoun>.«d in favor of the president, might rcake some difference about his selection, but as tbe convention promises to be all Harrison this would not cut any figure in the selection of a presiding officer. HAD A HOT TIME. Gale Bnrtis in a Democratic Convention in Xew Mexico. G. C. Burtis, formerly of LuVerne, is now in New Mexico. He has been having some experience worth relating, and he writes it to the LuVerne News, from which we clip. He says: I had the pleasure this afternoon of attending a democratic convention down here in Las Vagas, New Mexico. As the discussion was going on the excitement over delegates got rather warm, when I. forgetting myself, moved that the delegates be instructed to vote for Gen. Geo. W. Hanna for congress first, last and forever.. Just then a coarse Mexican voice shouted. " who is Hanna?" Before I could explain two hundred greasers jumped to their feet and shouted with one voice that shook the ground like an earthquake, "Cleveland is our man!" But looking about for Boyleus or Stephenicus or some other member of the ring to second my motion, I shouted "Hanna for congress!" But there being no second, and seeing 200 pair of Mexican black eyes looking daggers at me, I began to realize that I was not in Iowa and, thinking that perhaps about the next move would bring a hundred six- shooters to bear on the would-be instructor, I bowed an apology to the convention and withdrew very much chagrined at my experience in New Mexican politics, but still shouting "Hanna for congress! Hanna for congress." ALL ABOUT THE HOESE. W. P. Ijams says that if Axtell does not lower all the trotting records this year he will be a badly disappointed man. Those who have seen the great, young stallion say he is in perfect condition, and that the way he is jogging justifies his owners in the high hopes they entertain for him. Sunol was shipped to Franklin, Pa., on April 18, and will stay at Prospect Hill farm a short time and then go on to Meadville, where her active trainino- will be begun by Marvin. The Queen of the Turf is in very fine shape, and why she will not again reduce the record is not apparent.

Clarkson's condition is not yet such as will warrant his attendance upon the national convention, and unless he improves much more rapidly than he has done of late he will bo unable to put in an appearance at the great Minneapolis gathering next month. Mr. Clarkson out of Iowa politics will leave a big vacancy that will bo hard to fill. He may have his faults—who hasn't? But he has been one of those strong, earnest workers that gives strength and standing to a party, and inspires confidence in his followers. All Iowa will hope for his return to health and strength. John C. Bills of Davenport no doubt considers that a poor excuse is better than' none. He was temporary chairman of *.he democratic state convention, and in his ad- dross said: " I am one of 40,000 or more voters in Iowa stigmatized with much bitterness as deserters from the republican party. I deny that we deserted or left the republican party. I deny that there is any such thing as a republican party in Iowa. Three years out of every four wo have a prohibition party which usurps and absorbs the republican party. Once in four years, the presidential year, the anti-prohibition republicans are grudgingly Invited to come back, cast their votes for the party ticket and then immediately retire in good order for the next three years. Even then they SOME EAELY HISTOBY. Tradition Says that Prairie Creek Was Once Xavlgable. LuV.erne News: Perhaps it has occurred to but few of the people now living along the Prairie creek valley that this somewhat tortuous stream was ever used for purposes of navigation, but such is nevertheless an historic fact. It seems that some 20 years ago when this part of the country was a prairie wilderness Mr. O. E. French came and settled upon the farm now occupied by him which is adjacent to Prairie creek and some seven miles southeast of LuVerne. To make a long story short, suffice it to say that Mr. French purchased his lumber for building at Wesley, and instead of hauling it overland with teams as most people would have done he drew it to the creek which flows about a mile and a half west of Wesley and there constructed a raft after the manner of an eastern lumberman, and launched it upon the stream which was at the time bank full. Once afloat and with a pole in hand for steering purposes, the voyager floated down with the brisk current and safely landed his carload of lumber within a few rods of where he wished to use it for building his house, and following the course of the stream at least 25 miles from the starting point. It required two days to make the voyage but Mr. French considered the water-way much better than the overland route at that time, it being in the spring of the year and the ground very soft. So far as the writer knows Mr. French is the only person that ever utilized our classic stream as a highway of commerce, though at its present stage a packet line of small steamers might ply between Wesley and LuVerne with as much facility as upon the Father of Waters'. Williams to H. S. Henry of Morrisville Pa., is reported to be private, but is stated on good authority to be $10,000 —a round sum considering that her reputation rests solely on her relation to Axtell. The ups and downs of a horse's career are oftentimes many and various and especially so as regards geldings' A. V.

Tom James, vice-president of the Des Moines Drving park, has secured Mr. Williams' consent to a race between Allerton and Nancy Hanks as a special event for the Des Moines meeting, August 15—20. Mr. Doble has decided to remain at Washington park Chicago, thus declaring off a repetition of the greatest trotting race the world ever saw. Death of J. A. Bixby. The following is found in the Minneapolis Tribune: "James A. Bixby, formerly a well-known hardware merchant, died Tuesday in Denver, where he has been for two years for his health. J. H. Randall and A. Z. Levering of Darius commandery, K. T. have gone to Council Bluffs to meet Mrs. Bixby. The remains will lie in state at the asylum until Saturday." Mr. Bixby will be remembered by many as once a resident of Algona. He was well known here and had many friends. He was at the time manager of what was then known as the Billings farm now owned by C. L. Lund. When he left here he went to Cedar Rapids and engaged in the hardware trade, but afterward moved to Minneapolis, where he followed the same business. Some two years ago it was reported that he had failed in business, and owing to ili health had gone west. Mr. Bixby was a man of excellent address, and was rated a good business man. His death will prove a surprise to many, as when he was here he was possessed of vigorous health. 6 Algona is not slow at anything. It is never known to be behind the times. Whether it be in matu-rs of politics, religion, or whatever thought is uppermost in the mind of the counti-y, Algona is always to be found in the front rank. Thus it was that the idea was conceived of putting Chicago and other small towns in the shade by holding a world r s fair in the year of our Lord 1892, thus making a trip to the mud hole on Lake Michigan unnecessary in "93. It was a happy thought, and it proved a booming success, the like of which has not been seen in many a day. As if a world's fair was not sufficient attraction for the multitude which was sure to be in attendance, a national convention was planned as an adjunct, and this, too. while proving a card quite as drawing as the world's fair, no doubt settles the political controversy so far as the grand old party is concerned, and wholly obviates the need of a trip to Minneapolis next month in the vain hope of witnessing a circus in the scramble for official place. Our world's fair was gotten up by the Congregational people and held at the church Thursday and Friday evenings of last week. The church parlors were converted into various national departments in which many of the nations were amply represented, and the advancement of a century's progress and development were duly set forth. The mediaeval ages came in for their share of representation, and the classic features of the Greek ladies shone forth at the fabulous sum of ten cents a smile. France was also there, likewise Japan and many others, but the list is too long, and its recital is likely to become tiresome. Then there were the flower booth, Galbraitb's ribbon display, and the Setchell's millinery exhibit, all of which were centers of attraction at least for the ladies. One could not fail to be impressed with the marvelous display in the art department, where a collection of choice paintings was displayed, "loaned for the occasion,"of course, which would do credit to any city in the country, and which might prove profitable as a model for the managers of the great Columbian exhibition to be held at Chicago next year. It should be added that in large part these paintings are the handiwork of Algona artists, and in no small degree do they reflect credit upon the skill and genius of many of our artistic ladies. Added to all this the American booth furnished ice cream and cake for a moderate compensation, and did a thriving business. Rev. Davidson opened the exercises Thursday evening. He said that while many nations were represented, yet it had been impossible to secure delega- tipns from all. However there were enough to show something of the world's progress in this nineteenth century, and his statement was easily verified by a trip through the various departments. After invocation there was an instrumental duet by the Misses Smith, a solo by Miss Fahnestock, and then the grand march took place. It was an imposing spectacle in which the visiting nations were shown off to the best advantage. This closed the world's fair exercises for the evening, and the temporary organization of the republican national convention was announced. The world's fair was &<* ain opened Friday evening, and a pro- gramme carried out similar to that of the previous night. Altogether it was a great success, and will prove of much financial benefit to the church society beside having furnished two evenings of rare entertainment. The many ladies who labored with commendable zeal to produce this result should not be forgotten by those who are disposed to put the credit where it properlv belongs. * J e fi pointed address wholly on the l me a simon-pure republicanism, and ^ W Mention adjourned to Pridav i 8:30. •* Friday evening the work was up again, and the convention eot to business without delay I business in order was that of ut tionf. and the roll of states was for that purpose.

When the roll call fcJ reached Minnesota Ole Johnson Rvan of that state advanced to the rostrum and said: "Master Channan, Yentlemaos ana Lady: Ay never med spetz on republiecon venston before, men ay tank av haw pot so gud ritz to med spetz for sweed mans som live on Mansota, as gankee faller hod to med spetz for gankee mans donn est en "Ay livin on Mansota long tame.
