Judge Hubbard very properly began his now notable speech against corporations at Council Bluffs by referring to Thomas Jefferson. Prof. Ely is authority for Iho statement that Jefferson fully believed as the judge does that corporations are inconsistaht with everybody's Inalienable right to pursue happiness, and intended to have an amendment adopted to the constitution, with the other amendments embodying his bill of rights, prohibiting them. But so strong was the belief in those days that no one would tend to another's business ns well as to his own, thatlt was thought impossible that corporations oould compote with partnerships and individuals, and Jefferson's precaution was neglected, whether wisely or unwisely is now a matter of discussion. There can bo no doubt that Judge Hubbard puts himself In lino with the sentiment which controlled the beginning of our national life. Jefferson was by nature and education opposed to paternalism, to state interference, to activity by any governmental agency in matters affecting the liberties of individuals, and Jefferson was tho spokesman of oven Now England, which with all its longings for church supremacy, was extremely democratic in civil matters. Tho people today are much nearer state socialism than they wore after tho revolution. They look without alarm upon gradual •encroachments of law makers, which then would have caused trouble and insurrection. They allow combinations of capital and labor to war with private military forces, and to affect if not control tho price of commodities, tho means of transportation, and many of tho most important financial transactions of tho country; all of •which in an earlier day would have been suppressed as Jackson suppressed Biddlo's bank. For bettor or worse tho country has drifted very widely from original principles, and so it happens that tho judge's address has created great surprise, and people scarcely believe him in earnest. Tho immediate effect of his views will not probably bo great. Tho private corporation will continue to flourish. But in a general way his speech will mold public •thought and in a much wider Jield than he entered. In a late essay Herbert Spencer has pictured, as ho has often done before, the evils of state socialism. In the last North American Review, a loading Engli&h statesman, Joseph Chamberlain, tolls of tho benefits state socialism has conferred upon the English people. The dispute is not confined to these loaders, but is growing in proportion as people are led to think seriously on tho tendencies of tho times. Tho judge has made an important contribution to it, and from a position of intimate acquaintance practically confesses that one important socialistic effort has iailed. In a practical way his speech is of value in making clear that corporations being created by tho stale should bo under state control. The most absurd of all claims over made in Iowa is that in controlling corporations tho government is assuming now and paternal authority. In making corporations the state assumed its privilege. Controlling them is simply completing tho undertaking. All corporations whether public or private should bo under the immediate supervision of public authorities. Whatever may bo tho ovils of socialism, half-way socialism is more "foil than anguish, famine, or tho sea," of Mr Hostettef, who is in the employ of W. H. Innis. He floated down the water on a board, and saved himself by catching on a bridge." To which the Ruthven Press adds: "Rats! At the time of the Johnstown flood your Mr. Hostetter was in Algona, Iowa." Frank Nicoulin says in the Mason City Republican: On account of the marriage of tho manager of the Bee Hive store, the proprietor has concluded to close out at cost the largest stock that has ever been seen in Mason City. Humboldt Independent: Wo read a splendid article in THE UPPER DES MoiNES last week on " Russian Fruit Trees," by Miss Alice Mann. It was read at a late meeting of the Farmers' Institute, and is worthy pasting in every fruiter's scrap book if lie can get it. The democratic Webster City Graphic growls out as follows: With the departure of Consul Hanna for South America, tho papers north of us will bo deprived of a rich mine from which to extract locals. Since Mr. Hanna's appointment they have chronicled every move of that gentleman, and made about as much noise about it as though ho was an emperor just going to take charge of his government. A writer in the Graphic, who lives near Chain Lakes, says: " The worst thing I have soon is ,the dead fish along tho shores of some of tho lakes, smothered it is supposed by the deep snow upon tho Ice, tho water being low. Bullheads weighing from five to 40 pounds, and pickerel of all sizes. Tons and tons of. them lay along tho shores, and tho county papers are demanding that tho health officers shall bury them." Emmet County Republican: Senator A. B. Funk seems to be in dead earnest in his refusal to consider a ronomi- nation to tho state scnatorship. The party will have difficulty in finding a bettor man or a stronger candidate. It is said that Palo Alto county republicans would like to have Banker E. S. Ormsby or Banker M. L. Brown try for the plum, while Algona and Spencer are said to have candidates lying in wait. And then a demo-greenback- alliunco follow—J. C. Baker of Emmetsburg—wants to bo representative. So does an equally party laden crank in Emmet county. It is hoped that tho proper committees will adjust all these matters before hot weather. Some of the candidates are enough to give one tho summer complaint. s. OMSK. An Appreciative Estimate of the Bend JjftTVycr— One of Four Brothers In the War. All friends of Mr. Clarke and his well known brothers in Algona will read with interest the State Register's fine tribute to his memory. It pictures a typical career of the union soldier, and gives an interesting sketch of the early history of a well known family in Iowa: Col. Clarke was a native of Maine, and came of distinctively Now England lineage. He was a descendant of Hugh Clarke who settled at Watertown, Mass., in 1640. His paternal grandfather was a Baptist clergyman, originally of York county, Maine, and his maternal grandfather, Dr. Stevens, was an able physician who practiced medicine for nearly half a century in tho same county. His father, who settled in Piscataquis county, was a lawyer of acknowledged ability and force, who died in early manhood, leaving a largo family of children dependent upon their own efforts for success in life. The subject of this sketch was the oldest in the family, and ho acquired a collegiate on at Waterville college, now Colby university, Maine, paying his own expenses by teaching three months of the year, and keeping abreast of his man, of elevated views and purposes, of pure and spotless character, and of the rarest personal integrity and worth. In his life he illustrated the great truth that, " Manhood Is the one unchanging thin? Beneath life's changing sky." Such a life is worthy of something more than a passing notice. It is one of the treasures of our common humanity not to be forgotten with a sigh, but to be remembered and revered, as a pure influence working for good in a THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. St, Nicholas for May presents a very tempting ttiblo of contents, beginning with OUR democratic contemporary notes tho recording of tho deed which puts B. P. Clarkson in sole possession of tho State Register, and adds, "The Register is not what it used to bo." On account of various differences of opinion, THE UPPER DES MOINKS can probably appear as an impartial witness, and its opinion is that tho Register has materially improved under tho now management. It lias especially gained in tho spirit of its news and editorial departments. R. P. Clarkson is fully equal to his brother as a writer. Ho is much superior as tho manager and director of a newspaper. No reader of tho Register can fail to note its steady growth in tho di ruction of the best in modern journalism, and the little llings at its editor are ill- timed. an imaginative poem, "Morning," by the Into Emily Dickinson, whoso work has'boon so cordially praised by tho critics. Nora Perry's "Siege of Calais,'' a ballad with striking illustrations by Birch, will delight little students of history, who will also read tho second paper on " The Land of Pluck, 1 ' by Mrs. Dodge, with keen delight, supplemented by two very interesting letters on Holland, in tho letter-box department. Tho May Contury begins a now volume, and in it are begun several now features of what tho Contury calls its "summer eain- aign." "Tho Squirrel Inn." by Frank B Stockton, is one of the principal and most popular of those now features. The " Inn" itself is carefully depicted in a picture which is tho joint product of tho artistic skill of and ingenuity of both tho author and Mr. Frost, tho illustrator. Mr. Frost brings out also several of the principal characters of tho story—which promises to bo one of tho most curious and characteristic of Mr. Stockton's inventions. Scribncr's Magazine for May contains important articles in two notable illustrated series—tho first of " The Great Streets of tho World," and tho second of tho " Ocean Steamship" articles. A. B. Frost has made eighteen drawings for the "Broadway" ar- ticlo, which are as complete an Interpretation of tho varied life of that thoroughfare as R chard Harding: Davis' picturesque and vivid text. Skillful artists, liko Met- eulf. Zogbaum, Denmiin, Broughton, and VilUers make tho steamship article very attractive and elaborate in illustration. With two such series of articles, and a special fiction issue in August, it is believed that the summer numbers of this magazine will bo remarkably interesting. Certainly thoro has boon no story so extraordinary in its plot and so forcible in its vivid description as tho late Douglas O'Connor's "Brazen Android," the concluding portion of which appears in tho Atlantic Monthly for May. If the first portion of tho romance was remarkable, it was at least within tho lines in which story-tellers are accustomed to confine themselves • but the charactod introduced in the second por- class in their studies by increased labor and application. In June, 1802, shortly before the commencement at which ho would have graduated, ho left his senior class and raised a company for tho Eighteenth Maine infantry, afterwards the First Maine heavy artillery. Ho was commissioned captain of this company and at once went to the front with his regiment. Ho was however regularly graduated by ihds alma mater, and received his diptema at about the same time ho reeamod his captain's commission. As a soldier ho was skilled, efficient and brave. He knew nothing but duty faithfully and gallantly done. In its discharge he showed the same tenacity and resolution which he exhibited in all of the affairs of life. In the campaigns and battles of the Army of the Potomac, in which he participated, blood was poured out like water, and human lives without number were freely given for the country's cause, with undaunted dash and valor. Yet in tho minor position which he filled, he distinguished himself in these terrible contests. In tho repulse of Ewell's tion is so inexplicable, and his action in tho story so tremendous, that what has seemed but strange hitherto becomes now tho merest commonplace. The power of tho story is of tho same kind that one finds in Poo's "Fall of tho House of Usher." A GREAT LAW SUIT, IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Emmelsburg is to have a brick yard. .

Clarke has been at Sioux City for two weeks trying one of tho most important cases ever brought in the state. A year ago tho law firm of Joy, Hudson & Call arrested a man named Crockett for conspiracy. Although thoro was strong evidence against him lie escaped conviction. They were acting as attorneys for W. C. Hudson, Crockett sued tho firm for $25,000 damages for false arrest and libel, and the suit was finished Friday with a verdict of acquittal. Tho trial lasted 11 days and was contested by Goo. W. Argo tho well known attorney of the Haddock trial. The Journal has made full reports of tho case and Saturday morning said: All of yesterday was divided between tho arguments of Geo. E. Clarke, of Algona, for the defense, and Geo. W Argo, of this city for plaintiff. They made unusually forceful and persuasive addresses. Quito a number of spectators stayed in the court room throughout tho day as interested listeners. The bar was especially well represented. attack upon tho rear of Grant's army at Spottsylvania, Captain Clarke lost in killed and wounded by rebel bullets. two lieutenants and 71 enlisted men of his company. Later, in front of Petersburg, in tho assault upon the rebel works on June 18, 1864, ho commanded a battalion 'of his regiment and was three times severely wounded. His regiment lost two-thirds of all tho men it took into action in this affair. He was carried off the field in what seemed a dying condition, and the rigors of the heated season which followed seemed certain to finish the work which the hostile bullets had begun. But his matchless couraga and indomitable purpose triumphed over all, and with the coming of autumnal days he gained his strength little by little, until ho was able to return to his old home, to rebuild his shattered constitution and recruit his maimed and bullet-torn frame. He was commissioned major of his regiment and was brevotted lieutenant colonel and colonel for distinguished bravery, but did not recover sufficient physical vigor to rejoin his command, and tho racking effects of his wounds followed him through all the remainder of his life. It was no doubt duo to this that Bright's disease fastened upon his enervated system and finally ended his mortal days. Tho adjutant general of Maine in his official report of 1866, said of Colonel Clarke: "Ho is one of four brothers who held commissions in Maine regiments during the late war. AU were severely wounded, one dying of his injuries. Like the Horatii of antiquity these brothers united their efforts against the foes of the country; and though they may not hope liko their prototypes to become the heroes of classic tradition, yet in a peculiar degree are they entitled to the gratitude and appreciative remembrance of their fellow citizens." Col, Clarke had a just personal pride in his military record and achievements, as the treasured heritage of his family and his children; but he scorned to parade them before the public to influence his civil or political life, as Coriolnnus disdained to exhibit his honorable scars and wounds to win the suffrages of the Roman populace. As soon as his health mended sufficiently ho read law at Bangor with Hon. A. W. Paine, one of the ablest lawyers of the Pino Tree state, and he practiced his profession in that city with ability and success until September, 1880. For several years ho was in partnership with Gen. H. M. Plaisted, afterwards governor of Maine. Ho world where so much of evil prevails. Col. Clarke was married in 1860 to Miss-Luella Bradbury, of an old anij distinguished family, whose father, Mr. S. P. Bradbury, has been for many years, and still is, superintendent of the public schools of Bangor. His deeply afflicted wife survives him, together with three children, Rufus B. Clarke, of the house of J. H. Queal & Co. of Sioux City, Miss Alice L. Clarke, a gifted literary lady now connected with the Youth's Companion of Boston, and Miss Florence, now a pupil in out- high school. THE CLEVELAND BAYS. Some Points of Interest About One of 'tlio Oldest Breeds of Horses In the AVorld. E. V. Hopkins says in the Western Agriculturist: I would like to say a few words in regard to the Cleveland Bays as a coach and general purpose breed—my choice after a long study and careful inspection of the different breeds of coach horses now before tho public. Of all known breeds the Cleveland Bays combine more good points and good characteristics in a manner to constitute a symmetrical and perfect whole than any other. They are the oldest race of horses in England except the thoroughbred, having been distinctly bred since 1600; consequently they are thoroughly established. Prooif lies in their power to reproduce themselves nearly every time, regardless of the color of the mare. They are the purest bred of the coach horses; in fact they are the only pure breed of coach horses in the world. They are always bays with black points, withlittle or no white. Their ability to reproduce their color and characteristics makes them the most desirable of all the coach breeds for crossing with our native mares, making a beautiful matched pair an easy thing to accomplish. Their docility makee them the farmers' general purpose horse, suited to all kinds of general farm work, driving and light saddle work. I know a Cleveland stallion that has been owned by the same party for six years, and only failed to produce a bay colt once. The Cleveland Bays are 16 to 16i hands high, weighing from 1300 to 1500 pounds. They have fine he'ads, full bright eyes, long, arched necks, oblique shoulders, deep chests, short backs, long quarters, strong, cordy legs almost devoid of hair, and have good feet. They are possessed of grand, lofty carriage and superb action, with heads well carried, and every appearance denotes activity and strength combined in a manner not found in other breeds. The origin of the Cleveland Bay is involved in a cloud of obscurity, but history tells us they originated in Cleveland, Yorkshire, England. Various theorists tell us they are a progressive admixture of blood of the race horse bred upon the native mare of the district of Cleveland, while others say they are a remnant of the old Roman warhorse. For generations the Cleveland Bay has been looked upon as pure bred. animal form a HARBISON'S SPEEOHES. He Emphasizes the Need of Foreign Markets — The Coining American JPollcy Outlined. The series of ovations Presiden Harrison has met on his southern tour havejbeen exceptional in their cordialiti and hearty demonstration of local pride It has rarely happened that any presi dent has been more enthusiastically re ceived. It has never .happened that any president has made so entirely meritorious speeches on such an occas ion. Speaking many times each day, President Harrison has always saic something new, with pleasing loca references, and something cordial with out being familiar or cheap. And be sides that he has endorsed a commercial policy which makes a great anc radical change in national affairs, and which has aroused the greatest enthusiasm everywhere. A few selections on many topics treated of show his ful! adherence to Elaine's programme, anc his shrewd manner of stating the demand for foreign trade. PROSPERITY BY RECIPROCITY. "We are great enough and rich enough to roach forward to grander conceptions than have entered the minds of some of our statesmen in the past. If you are content, I am not, that the nations of Europe shall absorb nearly the entire commerce of the near sister republics that lie south of us. It is naturally, in a large measure, ours, oui'E by neighborhood, ours by nearness ol access, ours by that sympathy that binds a hemisphere without a king. The inauguration of Pan-American con- congres's,, more properly the American conference, the happy conduct of that meeting, the wise and comprehensive measures which were suggested by it, with the fraternal and kindly spirit that was manifested by our southern neighbors^ have stimulated a desire in them and in our people for a larger intercourse of commerce and of friendship." HE FAVORED THE BILL. " The provisions of the bill passed at the last session looking to a reciprocity of trade, not only met with my official approval when I signed the bill, but with my zealous promotion before tho bill was reported. Its provision concerning reciprocity is that we have placed upon our free list sugar, coffee, tea, and hides, and have said to those nations from whom we receive these great staples: Give us free access to your ports for an equivalent amount of In breeding, a certain type of has been adhered to until they breed that reproduces itself with wonderful uniformity of type, color, and general appearance, which have made them famous in various parts of the globe. They will impress their offspring with their action and general characteristics more than any other breed'of coach horses. They are of a very gentle and kind disposition, making tho very best of family horses, suitable for general purpose and light draft. The Cleveland Bay, crossed on our native Black Morgan, or trotting-bred mares, is the most desirable of our native crosses for raising carriage or coach horses. We have known them crossed on Hambletonian mares that could trot in 2:45. At present, when almost everyone is raising some kind or other of heavy draft horse, there is a big opening for general purpose and coach liorsesT and or carriage well-mated, good coach teams outsell all others. served two terms as assistant secretary of tho senate of Maine and for five years was judge of the municipal court of Bangor. Ho resigned the last named position on account of his feeble health, and came to Iowa, hoping to be bonofitted by tho change. He at once located in Des Moines, and since, September, 1880, he has engaged in practice hero and in the other courts of the state, and has been an honorable and distinguished member of tho profession. In tho state supreme court, the THE WIVES OF VETERANS. State Commander Davidson Proposes to Have Them Cared For. The newly elected commander of the grand army of the state was given a fine reception on his return to his home at Hull. In his speech he said; "And now I will take you, my friends and neighbors, into my confidence and tell you why, at a late hour, I became a candidate. I believe wo have a duty to tho widows, mothers, and wives of our federal courts, and the district ho won the respect of all courts, judges departed or destitute comrades. Our state has erected a soldier's home at Marshalltown where the last days of the heroes of our late war may he spent in comfort, but in order to become an inmate of this home the scarred and broken down veteran must part with the loved wife, who through all the past years of joy and sorrow, sunshine and rain, has been his guiding star, helpmeet, and comforter; who, while Tho prominence of the parties to the case, tho largo amount asked for damages and the ability of tlfo opposing counsel conspired to make tho case one of notable importance. Throughout its rather tedious trial there has been a growing interest. Tho climax was reached yesterday. When tho court opened in tho morning Goo. E. Clarke began his argument. It was delivered with convincing earnestness. Mr. Clarke's argument is given fully, but is too long to reproduce. All friends in Algona of the firm and Mr. Clarke, will be pleased to hour of their full vindication, and his success. before whom he appeared, and the admiration and affection of his professional brethren at tho bar. Of late his name has been often mentioned by them in connection with judicial honors, for which ho was admirably fitted by temperament as well as by his attainments and knowledge of law. The invigorating and salubrious climate of Iowa greatly benefited him, and for a time seemed to bring him the promise of robust health and long life. •But the fatal malady which was fastened upon him undermined his naturally vigorous constitution and blighted all hope. For the past year he has been in a critical condition, and faced impending death with the same resolute will and quiet courage that he had faced all of the affairs of life. He has gone in tho full prime of manhood and usefulness, lamented by all who had come to know the sterling qualities of his admirable and excellent character. Ho was a genial and cultivated gejitle- '•''.

When I think of these noble women my heart goes out in sympathy to them, and it shall be my leading endeavor to have the matter of having our laws so amended by the next legislature that instead of the old wife being left to the charity of friends ot- to make her home in the poor house, that she and her husdand shall have a little cottage in connection with the home at Marshalltown, where they may spend the remainder of their clays together in peace and comfort.

"Already one treaty with that youngest of the South American republics, the great republic of Brazil, has been negotiated and proclaimed. I think, without disclosing any executive sec- rots, I may tell you that the arrangement with Brazil is not likely to abide in lonesomeness much longer [prolonged cheering], that others are to follow, and that as a result of these trade arrangements the products of the United States, our meats, our breadstuff's, and certain lines of manufactured goods, are to find free or favored access to the ports of many of these South and Central American states. All tho states will share in these benefits. We have had some analysis made of the manifests of some of our steamers now sailing to South American ports, and in a single steamer it was found that 25 of our states contributed to the cargo." • REVIVAL OP COMMERCE. 1 ' I want al so that in these ports so long familiar with the American flag there shall again be found our steamships and our sailing vessels flying the flag that we all love, and carrying from our shores the products that these men of toil have brought to them to exchange for the products of other climes." PUBLIC CARE OP WATERWAYS. I am glad to have been able to rest my eyes upon the city of Galvaston. I am glad to have been able to traverse this harbor and to look upon that liberal work which a liberal and united government has inaugurated for your benefit and for the benefit of the northwest I have always believed that it was one of the undisputed functions of the general government to make these great waterways which penetrate our country and these harbors into which our shipping must come to receive the tribute of rail and river, safe and easy of access. This ministering care should extend to our whole country, and I am glad that it has adopted a policy with reference to the harbor work here ut least which I insisted upon in a public message The appropriation has been made adequate to a diligent and prompt completion of the work." .SHIP ISUBSIDIES, Someone may say we ought not to go into this business, that it is subsidy. But, my .friends, every other great nation of tho world has been doing it and is doing it today—'Great Britian and France have built up their great steamship .lines by government aid, and it seems tome our attitude with refer- once ito that is amply protected by an illustration I mentioned the other day. In the olden time no wholesale merchant sent'out traveling men to solicit custom, but stood in his own store and waited for : his customers, but presently some enterprising merchants began to send out men with samples to seek the trade and to save the country buyer the cost of a 'trip to New York or Philadelphia, until finally the practice has become universal, and these active, intelligent traveling men are scurrying this country'over, pushing and soliciting in their several lines of business. Now, imagine some conservative merchant in New York saying to himself: sonal regard but an assurance of the friendliness and respect of the American government and the Americas* people. I look forward with interest to a larger developement of our trade; to the opening of new lines of commerce and new avenues of friendship. We have passed that era in our history I hope, when we were aggressive and unpleasant neighbors. We do not covet the territory of any of the other people, but do covet their friendship and those trade exchanges which are mutually profitable." THE PITY SOHOOLS.
