MKllIT KKCOGNIZED. Whatever temporary feelings of disappointment may result from the outcome of the Minneapolis convention, time, and not a very long time at that, will make it apparent to all that Presir dent Harrison's renomination was not only the logical result but the only result to be expected or desired. His defeat would have been so conspicuous an example of rank ingratitude in politics that no other candidate could overcome the prejudice it would have occasioned. Every man, of whatever political faith, believes in fair play. And it is only fair play that the man whose administration has furnished the campaign war cries, and whose conduct of his office has been the pride of his party, should wear the honors he has BO fairly won. The republicans must win or or lose on the record of Harrison's administration. Whatever honors may be justly claimed for his assistants no one doubts that Harrison has been the head of that administration. How absurd then to propose to enter a winning campaign with Harrison thunder, and at the same time for reasons not stated to chose a new lead- Not one valid excuse has been president's re- the heat of a booms which seemingly ttost sweep the eoantry. still when the axrw fall of ballots drops in November, a majority somehow never comes unless that conviction on the part of the people is nU It has been said that, Harrison is not popular with the masses, "fliere is not a man in the republican party who has more of that kiod of popularity which can be coined into votes, and as the campaign comes on, and from the press and the stump the appeal is made to the soberand intelligent second thought of the people, the fact wiU grow more and more apparent. President Harrison is popular because he is able and because he is honest That is why he was nominated in spite of every scheme for his defeat, and that is why he will rally to his support a vote at the polls that will astonish ev«n his warm admirers. In his re-nomination the republican party enters the contest entrenched behind its strongest de- fences, and if it cannot win with him success with anyone else was out of the question. _______^____ TVHITET^AW REID. The republican candidate for the vice presidency began life in Ohio as editor of the Xenia News, He was born in 1837, educated at Miami college, in the war won much fame as a correspondent from the south, went on the New York Tribune staff shortly after the war closed, and succeeded Horace Greeley as editor in 1872. In 1870 he married the daughter if D. O. Mills, a California millionaire, and has been for years one of the leading newspaper men of America. President Harrison was universally praised when he chose Reid as minister to France, and the wisdom of the choice was vindicated by his success as a diplomatist. As candidate for vice president Mr. Reid brings acknowledged ability, the friendship of all wings of the republican party, the support of the business elements in New York, and a clean record as a citizen and in politics. Probably the best feature in his nomination is his warm friendship with Blaine. The Tribune has always been an ardent admirer of Blaine, but accepting his letter as final very strongly urged Harrison's nomination. Blaine and bis friends cannot but feel an interest in Reid's success, which will go far to heal over other disappointments. the Sartre pruyeaty.

Ellen Foster's speech: " A female suffragist took the platform, bonnet on, corsage bouquet, and blue badge; she did not perspire like the other sex, was good humored, and gave a mild flavor of family dinner to the scene. It seemed clear that she was an lowese. She made good taffy for the male sex, and was up in declamation. Amusement seemed to be the expression of the delegations, and the human owl in the gallery whooped as she left and raised yells of delight." '* »erknaen who bare interests with as. Miss.

Algona acquaintances of Charlie Winterble will be interested in this editorial item in the Sioux City Journal: Chas. Winterble of Primghar, for the last five years the county auditor of O'Brien county, is a possible condidate for state auditor of Iowa. Mr. Winterble has proven a most excellent and popular officer locally, and his friends believe he would be equally acceptable to the state at large. He has taken a very prominent part in the deliberations of the conventions of county auditors and is very well known throughout the state.

The great convention eventful moment came is over. The Friday after- of noon at 4 o'clock, when the vote Texas made President Harrison's nomination certain, and when the delegates went wild with excitement. It has been the most interesting, most hotly contested, and most successful republican convention yet held. Whitelaw Reid of the Xew York Tribune, and late minister to France, was named for vice president by acclamation. Of the preliminaries of the convention there is little of interest now. The time was devoted to skirmsihing by the opposition for some hold on the Harrison delegates. The first fight came over the report of the committee on credentials on the contested cases from southern states. The committee reported mainly in favor of the Harrison fe*«s secured the approral of my political opponents. I have been fillea with the thought that this country was coming to an epoch when the flag and those things that it symbolizes will be upon & still higher plane than how, and when our influence among the power? of the earth will be enlarged wisely and yet energetically. 'I exclude no faction. I take into my affection and respect ail the states and all our people. In entering on this campaign I shall do so without malice toward anyone. I think I have sometimes been suspected of being very little of a polith-ian from the fact that I have drawn no |jersonal lines inside iny party. I have tried to treat everyone with Uie- respect to which his station entitled him, and I have never in any case suggested, much and at less demanded, personal anybody. I have asked loyalty from of all public officers'a faithful performance of their dutv. I have felt that I was unable to find* a place for every deserving friend, but I have insisted that I did not des- parnge those I could not appoint. With all my might and strength I have tried to discharge my duties for the public good. I thank you all for many instances of your kindness. I wish*also to express my thanks with a heart that overflows with gratitude to the faithful body of friends who have been so solicitious in my behalf, and more than that, to the great body of well disposed, orderly, living patriotic Americans who have < always everywhere received me kindly.

Such personal grievanes as have been aired, have uniformly left the aggrieved in a worse light than anyone else. None of the politicians who schemed so vigorously for his defeat have stated a single fact which has gained them even a small crumb of public sympathy. On the other hand the white light of the contest has only brought out in clearer relief the independence, courage, and good sense with which Harrison has steered clear of purely political stock jobbing, and conducted the government on business principles. The president has had no Intimates with a string on his appointments. Ho has formed no clique by manipulating patronage. His support was from men, many of whom he had disappointed. It was mainly from men who had recieved no reward, and expect none. The machine was against him, but the public confidence, esteem, and cool good judgment of the masses were with him, und will bo with him when the test comes in November. President Harrison has mucU the same hold upon the republican rank and file that Cleveland has with the democrats, It does not como from admiration of his brilliancy, or from hope of gaining anything in his success. It depends rather upon a conviction that he knows what ho is doing, and is independent enough to do as he pleases, and to the best of his ability is trying to have the government run straight. There is a moral conviction in the breast of every voter that President Harrison has an intention to do the right thing, and will face any opposition to carry out that intention. And while political enthusiasm may blaze in countless torch-light processions, and may resound from the throats of countless brass bands, and sagacious Col. Polk, the leader of the farmers' alliance movement, is dead. Lafe. Young is right: "McKinley prevented his own nomination in 1888 and 18D3. Nobody can prevent it in 1890 if he shall live." Rhet Clarkson accepted the situation, and was made temporally chairman of the national committee by the Harrison men. It is not likely he will be [permanent chairman, but he is too good a politician not to flght for the ticket when it is once named. How peacably the convention ended is shown by the action of the Iowa delegation which chose Clarkson on the national committee by unanimous vote, although fighting him squarely in the convention. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. The June number of Romance contains 10 original and selected stories of remarkably high and even merit—stories of America, England, Franco, Spain, Russia, India and the high sea*. The- balance between grave und gay, the wild and the reasonable, is admirably maintained. One sheds a tear over Alphonse Baudot's Last Class, or Lydia Paschkoff's touching Marpha; laughs over the wit of Victorien Sardou and Madaine Bazan; shudders over Guy de Mau- passant's terrible description of Fear; and hastens through The Thief in the Grange, Running Down a Slave Ship, and others like them, in order to reach the solution of their clever mysteries. This magazine is issued by Romance Publishing company, Clinton Hall, Astor Place, New York. The price is 25 cents a copy; subscriptions, $3.50 a year. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

CorwithV Crescent: Thos, Little & Five Graduates Leave the High School Laden with Flowers—Teachers' Meeting at Hurt. The high school graduating exercises were held at the Congregational church Friday evening, and drew the usual overflowing house. The stage had been beautifully decorated with lace and flowers, and never looked more attractive. At 8 o'clock the exercises began and the first oration was delivered by Guy Taylor who chose "Reciprocity" and who, in a shortandwell written piece, gave an excellent account of this new commercial policy. Lillian Howard followed with a thoughtful estimate of Napoleon's character, and Myrta Putsch with an excellent review of literary productions showing 'the character of their authors. Two theses closed the programme, Ell»ert Tuttle speaking on "Plants," and Frank Tellier on ''The Solar System." Both showed a thorough knowledge of their (subjects and illustrated their remarks with finely drawn charts. Mr. Tuttle also delivered the salutatory while Mr. Tellier spoke the valedictory words for the class. Some excellent music was given by members of the school, and Dr. Barr, as president of the school board, conferred the diplomas with a few well chosen remarks as Prof. Dixson presented the class. A new feature was added to the pro- gramme in a class address which was delivered by Mrs. M. H. Dunham of Burlington, one of Iowa's best known platform talkers. Mrs. Dunham chose "The Problems of the Day" for her subject, and for half an hour spoke of the temperence, labor, and other problems now being discussed by the public. The display of flowers and other presents given the lucky five was very fine, and altogether commencement day passed off as pleasantly as it always does. Touchers' at Hurt.

The convention sustained the committee, and thus the first vote showed Harrison's clear majority. Then a caucus of Harrison supporters showed again the majority for him. The yelling was for Blaine but the delegates stood firm. From this on the Quay-Platt-Clarkson forces began to waver. McKinley was strongly urged but he was steadfast for the president. Alger finally dropped out, Blaine was placed in nomination, McKinley was voted for, but Harrison not only was nominated but by an increased vote over any thing claimed. It was 11:35 Friday morning when Chairman McKinley called for order. Some preliminaries were disposed of among them a speech by J. Ellen Foster. Then the roll of states was called for nominations for the presidency. When Colorado was reached Senator Wolcott arose and in a fiery speech named Blaine. The cheering was immense all through his speech. When Indiana was called the venerable R. W. Thompson arose for Harrison. Among the delegates the demonstration was greater than before. Then Eustis of Minnesota seconded Blaine, and at the close of his speech the chief Blaine demonstration occured. Then Depew for New York made the great Harrison speech and the demonstration for the president surpassed all previous scenes. Warner Miller spoke for Blaine. Spooner of Wisconsin for Harrison, and others for both, and the balloting began. A dramatic scene was witnessed when Ohio voted 44 for McKinley and two for Harrison. McKinley challenged the vote and ordered a roll call, casting his vote for Harrison. But Ohio supported her governor, even Foraker voting for McKinley. Great excitement followed the vote in Pennsylvania which Quay was supposed to own. Harrison got 19 votes, a gain of 10 that were unexpected, showing that the delegates had broken from Quay's control. When Texas' 22 votes showed that the president had won, McKinley got the floor and moved to make the vote unanimous. But the remaining states wanted to ballot, and the motion was withdrawn until the roll was concluded. The vote stood Harrison, 5351-6; Blaine, 182 1-6: McKinley, 182; Robert Lincoln, 1; T. B. Reed, 1. The overwhelming victory of the president completely demolished the opposition. WHERE THE HARRISON VOTES WERE. The popularity of the president was shown in his big vote in all sections. Among the western states especially he was strong, and also in the doubtful states. He got Indiana's full 30, and and in New York had 27. In Illinois he got 34 of 48, in Iowa 20 of 26, in Nebraska 15 of 16, in Missouri 28 of 34, in Montana 5 of 6, in South Dakota the full vote, in Wisconsin 19 of 24, and in Wyoming 4 of 6. Even California gave him 8, and Michigan gave him 7. In Massachusetts he had 18 out of 30. and in Deleware 4 of 6. The southern states were almost solidly for him, but his strength was not confined to them. THE TICKET Gov. McKinley: I have got but very little voice left but what I have is for Harrison and will be for him from now until he is elected in November, and mv heart will be with my voice. John H. Gear: I think 1 know the republicans of Iowa and I think I speak the exact truth when I say that he is stronger in Iowa than Mr. Blaine. J. S. Clarkson: We come out of the contest without bitterness or shame and none will do more for Mr. Harrison than the men engaged in the movements to further the nomination of Mr. Blaine. Before this convention we will go to work from the start. The leaders of the Blaine movement were acknowledged practical politicians of proven ability to leave all disputes behind when the doors of the convention hall close on them; forget all quarrels and with the past behind them have have no other interests than those of the party. Secretary Tracy: This is a great day for the administration, the republican party, and the country. The result is of course extremely gratifying to me. I have been sanguine from the first that one ballot would nominate Mr, Harrison. It was the logical conclusion for any one who would stop to survey the situation and study the interests of the republican party." J. Sloat Fasset: A republican national convention never makes a mistake. Senator Wolcott: "Personally as I feel just now, the nomination is like Artemus Ward's poem, more popular in some other town. I was for Mr. Blaine and the people I represent wanted him too. It's no time for regrets. They had the majority and we are for its action from this time on until the battle is finished." Senator Spooner: "During the convention I have received many telegrams from business-men all over the state of Wisconsin, among whom are some of the most prominent gentlemen, advising me as to the sentiment in their localities. These telegrams strongly urged the renomination of Mr. Harrison. Geo. M. Pullman: The whole logic of the situation pointed to and demanded the renomination of Mr. Harrison. Gen. Alger: I think that it is one that will carry thecountry next November for the republican party. Jas. G. Blaine: The resolution, energy, and persistence which marked the proceedings of the convention at Minneapolis will, if turned against the common foe, win the election in November. All minor differences should be. merged in the duty of every republican to do all in his power to elect the ticket this day nominated by the national republican convention. THE PLATFORM. the platform parity Of elections shall t>e folly gnafan teed in every state. We commend the able, patriotic and thoroughly American administration of President Harrison. Under it the conntrv has enjoyed remarkable prosperity, the dignity and H6"nor of the nation home and abroad; have been faitlu, maintained, and we offer the record pledges kept ns a guarantee of faithful performance in the future. , In addition the planks favor the exten sionof foreign commerce, restriction ol pauper immigration, protection of railway employees, ask home rule for Ireland and freedom from prosecution for Russian Jews oppose union of church band state, declare opposition to all trusts, urge free mail delivery in towns, commends civil service reform, favor cession of public lands in states and territories to actual settlers commend the world's fair and commend ali efforts towards temperance. HOW BLAINE RECEIVED THE NEWS. The following paragraphs are from the Chicago Tribune, which was Elaine's chief champion: Mr. Blaine received the announcement of his defeat in silence. He did not even change color. If it was a shock he kept it to himself. Not by sign of any kind could one detect the tumult that must have been within. It was a marvelous exhibition of perfect self-control. He was seated in a big arm chair in one corner of the bay window when the young lady operator entered. He had just beard the men shouting in the hall, but had no official confirmation of the truth. He looked up in an interested sort of way but scarcely more. The young lady crossed the room with the telegram in her hand, I watched the pale face of Mr., Blaine and his every motion. "Harrison is nominated," said the young lady in almost a whisper and then the blood rushed to her face and she turned away, a great contrast to Blaine, who simply reached out, took the telegram from her outstretched hand without the slightest exhibition of haste, anxiety, or even nervousness. It was a short dispatch containing but six words, "Harrison is nominated on first ballot," but it took Mr. Blaine a long time to read it. He took time enough to read it half a dozen times before he raised his eyes. Then he handed it over to his wife without a word of comment and turning to the still blushing young lady operator who was standing with averted head said, in a tone that had no tremor in it, "Thank you." The young lady took this as her dismissal and withdrew. Mrs. Blaine stood motionless while her husband read the message thattold of his defeat; then she took it from him, ran her eyes across it, and dropping it to the floor, walked into her bedroom and closed the door. No one will ever know what went on in there, but when Mrs. Blaine came out to go to the train her eyes were red as though from weeping. Aside from the two young Harrison enthusiasts that ran through the halls shouting out the news of their favorite_, there was no outburst in the corridors below, for everyone seemed to realize that there was sorrow in the "presidential suite" above, and they respected it. political leaders may work up countless Bros, with wieir assistants of Algona CORN—20 cents delivered on my farm. C. L. Lund.-61tf It has rarely happened that a candidate has been nominated by a better distributed support than ia in the Harrison column of figures, PRESIPENT HARRISON SPEAKS. The result was made known to President Harrison over a special wire, and the newspaper reporters had been invited to get the news there. When the vote was known they called the president for a speech, and he replied as follows: Well, gentlemen, I have a good deal of intercourse with newspaper men. It has been mostly at arm's length, except on u few occasions of this kind; and'yet some of you know that while I am very adverse to interviews, my doors have always been open to a friendly call from any of you, and any information about public business has been at your disposal. I can only say with reference to this event that has brought you here that the first thought that fills my mind ia one of gratitude, of thanks to the great multitude of friends who have in this way and diverse other waj;s expressed approval of every conscientious, though possibly now and then mistaken, attempt to serve their country upon republican lines. I claim no other credit than that of having attempted, without sparing myself labor, to discharge these public duties conscientiously. I cannot expect my democratic friends to think on right, and yet it has been very gratlfy- ing to me to know that The leading planks of are as follows: We reaffirm the American doctrine of protection. We call attention to its growth abroad. We maintain that the prosperous condition of our country is largely due to the wise revenue legislation of the republican congress. We believe that all articles which cannot be produced in the United States, except luxuries, should be admitted free of duty, and that on all imports com ing in competition with the products of American labor there should be levied duties equal to the difference between the wages abroad and at home. We assert that the prices of manufactured articles of general consumption have been reduced under the operations of the tariff act of 1890. We denounce the efforts of the democratic majority of the house of representatives to destroy the tariff laws by piecemeal, as is manifested by the attact upon wool, lead and lead ores, the chief products of a number of states, and we ask the people for their judgment thereon, We point to the success of the republican policy of reciprocity, under which our export trade has vastly increaed and new and enlarged markets have been opened for the products of our farms and workshops. We remind the people of the bitter opposition of the democratic party to this pratical measure, and claim that, executed by a republican administration, our present laws will eventually give us control of the trade of the world. The American people, from tradition and interest, favor bi-metallism, and the republican party demandsthe use of both gold and silver as standard money, with such restrictions, to be determined by legislation, as will secure the maintaindnce of the parity of the values of the two metals so that the purchasing and debt paviue power of the dollar, whether silver, gold or paper, shall be at all times equal.
