All eyes are turned toward the great gathering at Minneapolis, where, before the close of the week, the republicans •frill name their standard bearer for the coming campaign. The city is filled with people as it was never filled before, and political excitement runs high. The contest for the presidential nomination is apparently between the friends of Harrison on the one hand and those of Elaine on the other. The strife haa already become very bitter between the opposing factions, and many are urging that the only solution to the problem lies in the selection of a third man. It is not improbable Unit this may be done, and if so McKinley of Ohio is suggested with much showing of success. If Mr. Harrison is not renominated very early after theballot- ing begins, it will not be a matter of surprise if some dark horse carries off the prize. The convention opened yesterday morning, with J. Sloat Fussett of New York as temporary chairman. This was in a measure a victory for the Blaine men. Mr. Fassett addressed • the convention at some length, during which much enthusiasm prevailed, and his references to Harrison and Blaine were received with intense and prolonged cheering. The mention of the name of Reed was also the signal' for applause, and Mr. Reed was called to the platform, where he spoke briefly. McKinley will be permanent chairman. At the close of yesterday's session the convention adjourned to meet at 11 o'clock this morning. It is hardly probable that balloting will begin before tomorrow or Friday. And when it does, nothing approaching a correct prediction can be made at this distance as to the result. It may be Harrison; it may be Blaine; both sides claim to be confident of victory. It may be McKinley, or Sherman, but never Alger or Allison. The politicians are in charge and we may look for surprises. There is little discussion as to the man for second place, this feature of the convex tion being overshadowed and almost •wholly lost sight of in the struggle over the head of the ticket. is nomination. The state con- vections have largely been held, and already more than half the delegates are instructed for him; but the democratic national convention will work under the two-thirds rule, and as yet he lacks the requisite number of votes to nominate. He may be successful, but he is handicapped by the unpleasant embarrassment that his own state is against him in the convention, and the voters of the state are likely to be in a majority against him at the polls. It would seem as if Mr. Cleveland would have been prompted by motives of delicacy to forbid the use of his name in a national convention in which the delegates from bis own state were positively instructed for another man. But the Cleveland boomers evidently have not consulted any matters of pro* priety, and propose to die in the ditch, either at Chicago, or in November next. All indications point to the fact that one or the other will be their fate. THE ANTI-SNAPl'EUS. The Cleveland democrats of New York state met at Syracuse one day last week and held what they were pleased to call an anti-snap convention. In effect it meant that it was a protest against the Hill convention, held in February, and against Hill's methods generally. They selected another sot of delegates and will go to the Chicago convention with the double purpose in view of protesting against Hill's nomination and being admitted to seats in the convention in place of the Hill delegates. But they will not be admitted, for the simple reason that they have no grounds for a contest. Of course the Hill convention in February was a snap convention. Mr. Hill is the kind of man and politician to get his lieutenants in line and take any possible advantage suggested by the situation. And yet the convention was regularly called and the Cleveland men had just as much opportunity to oppose B1,AI>"E HESIOXS. Jas. G. Blaine resigned the office of secretary of state last Saturday. Following is the correspondence between Mr. Blaine and the president: DEPARTMENT or STATE, WASHINGTON-, D C., June 4,1892.—To the President: I respectfully beg leave to submit toy resignation of the office of secretary of state of the United States to which I was appointed bv you on the 5th of March, 1889. The condition of the public business in the department of state Justifies me in requesting that my resignation may be accepted immediately. I have the honor to be, very respect fully, your obedient servant, JAS. G. BLAIXE. EXECUTIVE MAXSIO.V, WASHINGTON, D. C.. June 4, 1892.—To the Secretary of State: Your letter this date tendering your resignation of the office of secretary of state of the United States, has been received. The terms in which you state your desires are such as to leave me no choice but to accede to your wishes at once. Your resignation is therefore accepted. Very respectfully yours, BBNVAMIX HARRISON. To Hon. Jas. G. Blaine. Mr. Elaine's action at this juncture was the political event of the week and caused a profound sensation throughout the country. Coming just on the eve of the national convention the motive at once attributed to him was that he desired to be free to accept the presidential nomination. Whether or not this is the fact must be determined by future developments. One thing, however, that seems certain is that the strained relations between President Harrison and the premier left no other course open to the latter. The people at large took Mr. Blaine at his word when he said his name would not be presented to the national convention. Perhaps he still entertains the same view with reference to the nomination, but his stepping out of the cabinet at such a critical time gives strong color to the belief that he will accept if nominated. We presume the right should be accorded to every man to change his mind, and yet if Blaine accepts the presidential nomination— which it now looks as if he can have if he wants it—the only reasonable theory is that the change of front comes as a result of the terrific pressure that has been brought to bear upon him, not so much by the people generally as by the politicians who seem determined that Harrison shall not be accorded a second term. Hence, while in some quarters Mr. Blaine is being severely criticised for his action, and for not saying the word that would settle the whole controversy in one moment, it may be the part of wisdom to withhold judgment until we know just what he intends to do, rather than hastily impugn his motives before knowing all the facts which surround one of the most peculiar circumstances in which the party was ever placed. That judge had the nerve to Say Khat he thought and at the proper time. There was no evidence to show that the jury were corrupted? and yet to partake of favors at the hands of a man whom they had just acquitted, and while they were acting as jurors in the case could have no other tendency than to give the whole affair a very sxis cious appearance, it was a wholesome lesson for the jury, and one that will not need to be repeated in Judge Woolson's court. TlIK FIVE-TEAR The matter of the removal of the five-year limit came up at the Omaha conference, nnd the decision was in favor of iU retention. This action was doubtless wise. It is now a rule of Methodism that no minister can be retained at one appointment for more than five years. The question came up at Omaha and was referred to a committee, the majority of which reported in favor of removing the limit, but the report of the minority was adopted and the rule retained. It is said to have been something of a surprise both to members of the conference and the church members in attendance, as a strong effort had been made for its removal. This rule does not obtain in all church organizations, and perhaps it would not be practicable. However, the good old Methodist plan of shifting the pastors about has worked no injury, and under it that organization has been built up to an enormous membership and one of much wealth in the land. Of course it seems impossible, in the nature of things, that any pastor should ever desire retention beyond the period when it was clearly evident that his departure would be agood thing, but those things have happened now and then, in spite of what seemed to be the exhibition of rare inconsistency. Many a pastor, as well as his local organization, would have been spared much in the way of humiliation if a time limit had been in operation. We do not know what the great bulk of Methodists think about it, but there are ample resisons for believing that the Omaha conference acted wisely in refusing to make tho change. 6f|S,"in*cW}r<ian« with tW Ordinance passed by the city council, which was signed by the mayor last Tuesday. GOT. Peck of Wisconsin issued a call for an extra session of the legislature to reapportion the state. The previous apportionment madehy the _ democrats for political purposes was declared unconstitutional by the supreme court Political leal in the democratic party is outstripping itself. The Webster City Freeman has passed its 83d birthday. The Freeman nnd J. D. Hunter are inseparably connected, and have bee« credits to northwestern Iowa journalism since the time when this section of Iowa had few papers and they Were far between. The congressional committee of the Tenth district met at Fort Dodge on Thursday last and decided upon June 30 as the time for holding the congressional convention at Boone. County conventions will soon be called and the congressional ball set in motion. As yet there appears no formidable candidate against Mr. Dolliver, and his Fort Dodge friends claim that his re- nomination is already assured. Mr. Dolliver is now in Minneapolis, and will soon be on the ground to look after his fences. Hill In February as they would have had at a later date, and there is positively nothing to indicate that the Hill men would not have carried the day one time as well as another, The fact is that they were on top in the New York democracy, and the Cleveland democrats were defeated for that reason in February just as they would have been in May, Of this fact they seemed wholly to lose sight, and instead of adopting the manly course, as shrewd politicians would have done, and accepting the situation gracefully, they now bob up in the role of kickers. It will avail them nothing, They now stand before the country in a light quite as unenviable as the Hill men can possibly be. Mr. Cleveland may be nominated, but the action of his fool friends has done much to turn the tide against him. And it has also done quite as much to make it impossible for him or any other democrat to carry New York. It leaves the New York democracy hopelessly and irrevocably divided. That is the logic of the situation, and no amount of reasoning will make it otherwise. Mr. Cleveland has made no public utterance concerning his candidacy, from which the only inference to be drawn is that "Barkis is willin'." There can be no question but that the jnajority of the democracy of the country A JUDGE WITH NEHVE, To the credit of the American jury system it should be said that only rarely does a case present itself such as that which occurred in Judge Woolson's court at Des Moines last week. J. C. Newton, a millionaire and owner of railroad stock, hud been on trial for having stuffed the mails for a certain period during which they were being weighed, the object being to determine the proper amount to be paid for their transportation. Tho jury acquitted him. He may have been guilty, but that is immaterial; the jury said he was not. After the trial the jury were approached by a nephew of Newton and tendered a banquet which they thoughtlessly accepted. The next morning the judge called them into court and administered a severe reprimand, saying: "If a precedent is established that a banquet is to be given to the jury by the successful litigant in the trial of men of great wealth, it would soon" become so that a poor man could not obtain justice. And since this jury has so grossly misbehaved that the court could not ask any litigant to take them as jurors, he, the court, therefore orders that they be discharged from the panel for the rest of the term because of improper conduct." Later, however, after reflection, and after learning that the jurors had merely acted thoughtlessly and without intentional wrong, he withdrew the latter clause of the charge, "because of improper conduct," and simply dismissed them. The judge said to Newton that he regretted exceedingly that tho law gave him no power to punish him for contempt, and if it were allowed he would set the verdict aside and order him on trial again. The Bloomfield Republican predicts the re-election to congress this year of John H. Gear in the First district and John P. Lacey in the Sixth. These gentlemen are strong, able men. They made good representatives not only for their districts but for Iowa, and people of their districts would honor themselves as well as Messrs. Gear and Lacey by returning them to the national legislature. Queen Victoria has celebrated her seventy-third birthday. She has been on the throne 55 years. Among the men who are being suggested for state auditor on the republican ticket this fall, none is receiving more cordial support than C. G. McCarthy of Story county. He had a strong following two years ago, and his selection would meet with general approval. His home paper, the Representative, says: "He is making no canvass this year in this county, but it is not unlikely that there will be a general acquiescence in the proposition to give him the endorsement of ahearty home support." The recent decision of the Louisiana supreme court which holds that the state laws for separate cars for the races does not apply to through trains, has caused quite a flurry in the southern states, where such laws have been passed. These laws imposed severe penalties for negroes riding in white men's cars, and vice versa, The decision has left these laws practically without power to accomplish the desired result, IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. The store of L. L. Bassett of Sheldon was broken into a few evenings ago and a large quantity of clothing taken. Emmetsburg last week voted in fnvor of granting an electric light franchise, and it is expected they will soon have more light on the subject. Editor F. Q. Lee of Webster City Graphic will spend the summer with a daughter in Nebraska, where he hopes to recuperate his wasted energies. The sale of the Goldfield Chronicle was completed last week, and Let.

Elmore Eye: The Eye scribe paid a decoration day visit to Algona and found that busy city duly honoring the memory of the soldier dead. As all the print shops were closed we were unable to see the real attractions of the city. Eagle Grove Gazette: The train des- patcher's office is to be equipped with an enormous Seth Thomas regulator, which is now here ready to be set up. It will be put about where the present clock hangs, and is so large that trainmen can see it plainly from the register window opposite. The other day the weight of the ice cribs in the Emmetsburg packinghouse broke some of the heavy timbers and several thousand pounds of meat in the chill rooms were landed in the cellar. The loss will be considerable and it will take some time to readjust the floors and heavy timbers. Hon. N. F. Weber of Clarion, for nearly 20 years one of northwest Iowa's most prominent business men and politicians, died of consumption last Thursday. Mr. Weber served a term in the state senate several years ago and he was for several years cashier of the First National bank of Clarion. S. L. Dows of Cedar Rapids, one of the B., C. R. & N. rail way directors, J. and J. T. Thompson and C. H. Kelley of Forest City have bought a half section of land in the west part of the county on the line of the new railroad and will plat a town in a few days, and it will probably be named Kelley.

When the ship which bore our offerings was unloaded its contents filled 810 cars. These cars were at once made up into special trains and started for the distressed provinces. The Emmetsburg Democrat says " a few fellows amused themselves Sunday night by stealing a quantity of liquor from the saloon on Main street and afterwards went around town stealing sign boards and tipping over small buildings. Among the sign board losers are James Higgins and Col. Pumphrey." We thought Emmetsburg was a prohibition town. Clay County News: In preparing the grade of the west bridge the workmen unearthed a well preserved human skeleton in the gravel pit near the north end of the bridge. There has been no interment there since the country was settled as far as anyone's memory goes, so the skeleton is supposed to have once been a noble red man. One evidence of this is found in his perfect set of teeth. Hon. John F. Duncombe was chosen as the one to present tho name of Gov. Boies to the Chicago democratic convention, but he has declined, in a public letter, and suggests that Senator Shields is the proper man to do the job. * The Mason City Times, founded by Reo Stauberry, was sold last week to W B. Terrell. The third party prohibitionists met at Des Moines last Wednesday and placed a ticket in the field, besides selecting delegates to their national convention. It seems a good deal like waste of powder; but as "playing politics" is Just now the popular fad, we presume they will be excused on that ground. Oregon's state election yesterday went republican by a safe majority. * Hon. Lafe Young delivered tho address at the Webster City park opening last Saturday.

QUOTES LAW. He Is After tho County Attorney with a Sharp Stick. The following explaines itself: To the Public: Whereas, our county attorney by his acts declared the actions of a justice of the peace appointed to fill a vacancy illegal, holding over without filing a new bond. I wish to call his attention to the last paragraph of Sec. 690, code of Iowa, and notes; also to State vs. Bates, 23, 90; also to Sees. 794 and 795, and he will flrid that a new bond is not required until the office is declared vacant and reappointment is made. I consider myself the principal of the bond on file. The irregularity does not lay on me when I am superseded. I am willing to hand over books and papers in good shape. The above was referred to Sullivan and towards which The last day plcasantest ' in weather which coming to San Francisco so uncomfortable had moderated, and the mining operations were so novel and the hospitality of the people so unbounded, and the mountain scenery so romantic, nnd all being colored a little by the consciousness that our pleasant party would be so soon scattered, we spent the day in unalloyed enjoyment. It took three engines to each train to pull us up to Dutch Flats, way at the top of the range. Here at 6 a. m. tables were ready three miles from town with an old-fashioned miner's breakfast for our whole party, bands were playing, old "forty-niners" were dressed as they did when first they prospected, the old early methods of gold washing were all on exhibition, and the now prohibited hydraulic mining was in full blastt This consists simply in confining a mountain stream in pipes and by getting a 100 or 200 foot pressure letting the stream through a nozzle onto the banks of auriferous clay which are washed down in channels, and as they pass over certain places quicksilver gathers the gold out. A whole mountain can be washed out in a short time, and that is what causes the trouble, for the great mass of dirt is carried to the rivers and fills them till the valley lands are overflowed and ruined. Even the bottom lands of the Sacramento were covered for miles as we passed, the cause being, it was said, due to filling the river bed by these placer miners. Over $100 of gold was gathered while we were at the mines and was presented in a lump to the association to be made into a gavel. It is said that §10,000,000 a year can be taken out if this mining be again allowed, and California people are very anxious for some scheme that will permit it. As the gold cannot be profitably gathered in any other way and so it is much more profitable than anything else in this ••egion, we fail to see why the poor valleys should be protected at the expense of so great an interest. Our ride to G rass Valley was on a romantic narrow gauge road, running by the Greenhorn river and through deep gorges The quartz mines are like all deep mines, the stone is taken out and crushed. Our party went down into the North Star mine over 2,100 feet, a rather solemn ride attended by many female moans and exclamations. The slant is at an angle of 45 degrees, and the chute so small and low that we all lay flat as on a toboggan. At Grass Valley as at Dutch Flats our coming was on the circus order, bands greeted us, free dinner was spread, carriages carried us, and all the people were out for miles around, It was a gala day in town and we walked between solid ranks of curious observers. Their admiration was not always manifest, and at the Chico picnic we heard one disappointed female, who had probably come ten miles, exclaim "why they are nothing but ordinary people after all," The Chico picnic was the great occasion of Friday. It was probably attended by 8,000 people and represented several counties, all met in a great forest of live oaks on the magnificent estate of Gen. Bidewell. In an early day the .general got the whole thing for one riding pony. His story is typical of the early settler. For years he had a squaw wife and roughed it, when roughing meant something. But he had good mettle, made money, went to congress, married a ludy of refinement who has educated him, and is now a fine looldng and intelligent man of to visit Geo. H. Rice, a brother «r D. Rice and Mrs. W. H. InghaW 5 Redwood City, and were driven frot there to Mento park, where Flood Hopkins, Stanford, and a dozen iniliirth aires have country seats. For ostentn tious display of wealth, and for tho luxuries wealth can bring, Mento Park is the chief point of interest in th« state. The parks, flowers, fine homes statuary, and other adornments whirl! money can add to what a beautifln nature has already giveh r makes a picture that cannot be duplicated, Mr Rice and D. Rice came to Redwood tn gether some 25 years ago, but the latter- returned. Clark Rice, D. Rice's oldest son, has been there five years and in doing well. One of the pleasant incidents of our drive was a visit with Dr Tripp, a "forty-niner" who told manv stories of pioneer days, and who made o our parting pleasant by the presentof a bottle of wine from his own vineyard whose respectable age insured its flavor We mention this as we have notopened the bottle and so cannot speak from p* perience. The ojHcial opening of the national convention was at San Francisco Monday evening, and a programme of exercises occupied the time till Thursday Tuesday WHS taken up by a boat ride on the bay. The Examiner had secured a fine big ferryboat and decorated it with flags, provided it with a banquet, and invited the association to see the citv from the water front. Gov. Markham and staif, Geo. W. Childs, the Earl of Meath and wife, and a number of the' leading men of the state attended us John P. Irish, our one time Iowa democrat, made a very eloquent presentation of what California wants in the way of national legislation, while the witty W H. Mills of the Southern Pacific as toastmaster kept the party in constant merriment. Geo. W. Childs was received with great applause, and John P. Irish rend his remarks, as his voice had failed him. The trip took us to the golden gate, all along the shin landings, to Oakland, to El Campo where the band played while wedanced in the beautiful pavilion, and finally to the navy yards, where the new ironclad "Monterey" is being completed. Three of these iron war ships are partly done, and it was a matter of much interest to watch the work going on Of the work of the association itself there is not much to tell. The most interesting thing connected with it was the badges provided by the California press clubs. They were of gold, silver, and tin, the hvtter being pure and from the Temescal mines near Riverside. We had considerable amusement with our democratic brethren as they proudly pinned these tin adornments to their lapels. Bros. Webster, Monger, Hornstein, and Moore were not to be badgered out of wearing them, however, and the latter actually got out his black suit in honor of the occasion, while Bro. Webster put an extra polish on his shiny plug hat. The first we saw of bona fide American tin was at Riverside, where pocket pieces were given us. It is of the best quality, and is said to be very abundant. Without attempting at this time to describe other scenes at San Francisco, I will conclude by adding a few personal items not yet mentioned. One of these is about our meeting the oldest daughter of Jeff Davis at Colorado Springs. She received at the Broad moor Casino meeting, is a fine looking woman, and wife of a banker in the city. At Los Angeles Mrs. John C. Fremont received at the dinner given at Judge Silents' home. Those acquainted with the picture of Thos. H. Benton would quickly recognize his features in tho old but vigorous woman, who first as Jesse Benton, and then as wife of the famous "pathfinder," won a national reputation. Mrs. Fremont lives at Los Angeles. HARVEY INGHAM. Cheaper nnd liettcr.
