The plank adopted by the prohibition party is likewise a tribute to his influence, for it more nearly than the democratic plank approximates the ideal of Georgeism. OOOO KOAUK JN J'OMTJCH.

Cbonu. THK COLD WATKU TICKET. Gen. John Bidwell, who welcomed the ^atk/nal Editorial association at his fe)i1aUj near Chico, CaL, and who celebrated big conversion to prohibition by digging up his grape vines, was nominated last Friday by the national prohibition convention for the presidency. He received 5!XJ votes or over 1.00 more than he needed. Iowa voted 24 for Bid well, three for Demorest, and three for Stewart. Dr. J. B. Cranfill of Texas was named for vice president on the first ballot. Sarn. Small ol Georgia wa* one of his competitors. The convention was stormy throughout, and a fcplii was only avoided by adopting a resolution that prohibition lathe only test of party fealty. The quarrel over free silver resulted in leaving all reference to it out of the platform. The quarrel over the tariff resulted in a free trade plank, very distasteful to many delegates. And to finish with Mrs. Cougar led a. spirited fight for woman suffrage and against the adoption of prohibition as the only party test. But the anti-suffragists were in a majority, at least according to her statement of the case. The tariff plank is as follows: "Tariff should be levied only as a. defense against foreign countries which levy tariff upon or bar out our products from their markets, revenue being incidental. The residue of tnean» necessary to an economical administration of the government should be raised by levying a burden on what the people possess instead of upon what we consume." TH'K HK.VA'fOJIIAT* CONTEST. The State Register in several strong editorials urged the convention last week to adopt a resolution calling for tho nomination of a candidate next year to succeed Senator James P. Wilson. Tho resolution was not presented nor adopted because on consideration the convention thought best to leave the matter to the gathering to meet next season. But tho Seventh and Eleventh district caucuses declared for tho proposition, and it met with favor everywhere, Tho Register is wholly right as to tho duty of tho party. Tho popu Jar choice of United Stales senators has come to stay. Although they will still be elected by slato legislatures, they must bo named arid must rnako a canvas of tho state so that tho voters may know who Is to represent thorn. The republicans should lake tho load in this reform In Iowa, and tho action at DOH Molnes last week Indicates that next fall a senatorial candidate will bo narnod in convention. Tho Clay County Nows says: " Judge Lot Thomas will have very llltlo, If any, opposition for renoinliiation ut the hands of the republicans of this judicial district. During liln eight years' service as Judge hi» dcicisicwB huvo boon marked by Judicial fairness and legal acumuu such as commend themselves to tho people whoso servant Judge Thoums la.

Let's hare Boozev' The Chicago Herald don't like Grorer much better than the Jx err York Sun does. It says: "When Mr, Cleveland -was informed of tlie nomination of Adlai E. Stevenson lor vice president and was asked how he regarded it he replied tiat he had notiiing U> say on the subject. This refusal on the part of a presidential candidate to observe the common courtesies of life by speaking pleasantly of his associate on the ticket, would create no little aston ishment aad general disgust if that candidate were any other than Grover Cleveland- He apparently is not to be judged by the standards which are applied to other men. In view of the fact that Mr. Stevenson was the real head, though nominally holding a subordinate post, of one of the greatest departments of government during Mr. dive- land's administration, it is amazing that even so dignified and noncornmunieative a man as the ex-president could not so far unbend himself as to say something complimentary of the party's nominee for vice president. - It is probable that he was surprised and disappointed at Mr. Stevenson's selection, but be should have had the tact to conceal it. If the ticket should be elected Mr. Cleveland will find it a difficult matter to ignore Stevenson as he did Hendricks. The Des Moines Capital had the best list of cuts of Iowa men for its convention issue last week we have ever seen. It proved that the woodcut is not necessarily sufficient grounds for a libel suit. The issue of the campaign is accepted by the democrats. The Knoxville Express, one of the ablestof the party's papers in the state, says: "The nomination of Cleveland means free trade ultimately, and no financial folly in the meantime." Mrs. J. Ellen Foster said at the Minneapolis convention: " May God help us all to be wise and true and strong and brave." To which Kate Field responds: " Well, I hope God may. The wise and true and strong and brave women will not thrust themselves into any convention. They have too much self respect to go where they are not asked. They will not resort to the trickery of male politicians to score a point for political notoriety; they will notdescend to bunccmb to tickle the ears of groundlings, and they will not make their sex ridiculous by using masculine and ungraceful gesticulation. Mrs. Foster converted no thinking man or woman, and she sent many of UH home wondering where the intuitive delicacy of women was situated in certain female types." Bro. Brigham very truthfully remarks; "There isn't a democratic editor in Iowa who can look his readers in the face and say that Harrison hasn't made a good president." Allan G. Thurmansays: "Benjamin Is not .an easy man to beat. There is no use trying to disguise that fact." The democratic Dubuquo Telegraph says: "His affirmed that Iowa democrats are loyal to Cleveland. Iowa democrats do not owe loyallty to Cleveland or to any other man. What they do owe loyality to is their principles. Unfortunately they can not be true to some of these and support Cleveland, nor true to others and oppose him. His candidacy places them in a very uncomfortable position." Hon. W. J. Campbell, chosen chairman of tho national republican committee, has announced that lie shall decline to serve. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES.

Carroll Herald: "Judge Conner and Eugene Seeor." savs THE UPPER DES MOINES, "both voted for Harrison." Yes, and they represented their constituency faithfully, too. Estherville Democrat: C. B. Mathews was over from Armstrong yesterday, and reports that the lots in the new town will soon be put on sale, and building will then be commenced. Livermore Gazette: J. C. Blackford of Algona was in town visiting his relatives this week, and has now gone to West Bend, where he takes the position of cashier in the new bank there. The Carroll Herald is not the first one who has got Kossuth's two A. D. Clarkes mixed up: Hon. A. D. Clarke of Algona calls his youngest son Harrison Elaine Clarke. Here's luck to the young H. B. C. Elmore Eye: Hon. S. L. Dows, manager of the air line, gives it out cold that the new road will be built no farther west than Armstrong this summer. It is expected that the line will reach Armstrong by Sept, 1. Humboldt Independent: The many friends of Rev. Mary A. Safford will be glad to learn that she is rapidly improving in health in Germany Mrs. E. G. Bovryer of Algona is visiting in Humboldt with Mrs. J. M. Thomas and other relatives. Notice has been received by the state board of health that George Aderts and family, destined for West Bend, Iowa, and Ludwig Nelke and family, en- route for Preston, Iowa, but detained because they came over in the infected steamer "Saale," have been quarantined and are now free to proceed through this state. Humboldt is organizing a swimming club having for its principal object the teaching of women to swim, and a place in the river at River park will be select ed, the bottom cleaned out and graveled and plank approaches built and also a substantial bath house. Otherimprove- ments will be made depending upon the size of the club. It ought to be a very popular thing. Spencer News: Architect Conner of Algona was in town last week, gathering facts relative to our new school building, on which he expects to bid..; Theo. Metzgar, traveling for a wholesale grocery house, caught 86 pickerel, averaging three-fourths pounds apiece, with hook and line in 40 minutes, near Arnold's Park last Saturday morning. "Rmmetsburg Reporter: A number of farmers living near Whittemore are incorporating a company for the purpose of buying and selling and dealing in all kinds of farm products, grain and seeds, cattle, swine, sheep and poultry, coal, salt, flour and binding twine, all kinds of merchandise, farm machinery, lumber, stone and brick, and all kinds of fencing and building materials. LeMars Sentinel: Comrade Bob Nichol of the Milford Mail is said to be inventing and attaching a " power" to a Washington hand press in hisoffice. This will be something new and unique. A traveling man from Dick in son county says that Bro. Nichol has used up nearly all the worn out and abandoned binders and harvesting machines in his county in the construction of his "power." Blue Earth Post: Mrs. Esther A. Ridley of Estherville, Iowa, was among the number of interested visitors at the Free Baptist conference, and was a guest in the family of the junior editor during her stay here. Mrs. Ridley enjoys the distinction of being the first white woman to settle in Emmet, the county where she now resides, back in the 50's, For 18 months at that early period she was completely isolated, not seeing the face of a woman, With her husband, both hardy pioneers of the New England type, they held on through all the adverse periods; Indi- dlan scares, grasshopper devastations, and hard times of all kind and conditions, incident to the early settlement of a new country, until the tide turned and permanent prosperity became an assured fact. The place where they first located bears hoi- name, and is one of tho brightest, thriftiest towns in our neighboring state, where now, as always, Mrs. Ridley is foremost in hospitality and good works.

I assure you S»a.t I know as coach or more alxrat my father aad his family than anyone in what I say will adhere strictly to the troth. As to Pasl Sands and his erratic life I have no word of defence before the public. I know all the tireomstances of his life, the dial elements which compose it, and can personally over his. as over all like careers, draw a mantle of charity. I do not complain because others are not so lenient. Bat when the character, and the motives and the daily life of mv father are so grossly misrepresented, are made th target for malevolent insinuations foanded on the gossip of some vindic tive person who dare not place his statements over his signature, I feel that my indignation if not righteous is at least excusable, and with jour permission will "write history" not only in a "gen era! way" but particularly. Samuel Sands died March 11,189tt a Blue Earth, Minn. Xo obituary was ever written or published. His family were too poor. Consequently no fanci ful adulations marked his exit from what had ever been to him a world o care and responsibility. He is buriec in the Bancroft cemetery. Not the rudest slab of marble marks the spo and if there exists a monument to com memorate anything he ever did in this life, it is the beautiful school house L the village to the north of him and th other one in the country to the south o him coupled with the knowledge in th hearts of at least a few good citizen- that he was a friend of education. H didn't contribute a dollar to eithe building but God knows he would hav done so had he been blessed with one With bis own hands he planted tree around each of them. I know he die for I helped him. His life is over and I shall say n more than I believe this occasion de mands. He was generous to friend, t foe, and to stranger. 1 defy any ma to say. whether be be one of the elite of Kossuth county or the humbles tramp that ever begged from door t door, that he ever came to the Sand home and was unkindly treated or fel that there was a lack of hospitality Not only this but scores of all classe couidttestify if they would to havin been lodged and fed and treated as on man should treat another. The foundation of all that has bee so unkindly said of him comes from hi having been a poor man. He was not good financier and was ruined by debt But with God for my witness, and 1 believe in God, if there ever was a ma who honestly tried to pay what he owe and live open handed and above boar before the world that man was Samue Sands. Whatever construction mav be placed upon his doings by creditors wh have not received all that was due them or did not receive it when they shoul have received it, I know, from a ful knowledge of all the circumstances that he lies where he does today be cause the harrassment of debt bore him down. He battled resolutely and hopefully until the fact was borne in upo him that there was no escape, when h lost nerve completely, turned the farm over to the management of the boys be cause his health was gone, and as last resort tried veterinarv surgery He never intended to defraud anybod'j and he never boarded a coal trainln hi' life nor sanctioned it in anyone else That is the fact as to that matter, Mr Editor, and if anyone wants any mor information on that subject they can get it by applying to me. I do not wish to burden this article with it even though false reports would thereby be denied. The article of May 18 says ' They were never known to buy a pound of coal while they lived there.' The former coal dealers of Bancroft Burt, and Algona can testify to th falsity of that assertion. Now as to the home training of the family and I am through. My fathe and mother were always actuated b\ nigh ideals of life,—by noble aims and aspirations. They lived for 20 years amidst the bleakness and distractin°- solitude of the pioneer days of Kossuth county. Their trials and hardships form a part of that never to be written history of hardships from calamity after calamity-a history known and understood only by the pioneer fanner/ ine family was large but unceasing efforts were made to educate and refine the seven boys and the one daughter whose 1 fe has now ripened into a pure and noble womanhood Theindex finger 01 tiie bands home was ever pointed upward and never downward.

A state convention of the republican clubs was held at Des Moines last week, 550 delegates present Enthusiasm unbounded and there was cheering reports from all parts of the state. Retiring President Jackson reviewed the work of the clubs in a brief speech. The report shows the lowu leagues in good condition both as to membership and finances. Johnson Bingham of Cedar Rapids was elected president and Fred Conaway of Brooklyn, secretary. Delegates to the national league convention were elected. The Capital says that Geo. W. Perkins, the republican nominee for railway commissioner, is 59 years old, and is a native of New Hampshire. He located on his present farm near Farragut, Fremont count}', 21 years ago. He made his farm from prairie sod, and has a handsome place. He is a successful farmer. He did not enlist in the union army during the war, because of the loss of an eye in his youth. He was a loyal supporter of the union cause, however. Senator Perkins served in the senate of the last, two general assemblies and in the Twenty- fourth was a member of the committee on railways. His principal committee service, however, was on the committee on agriculture. Senator Perkins has a wife and four children, three sons and a daughter. His eldest son is s physician in Chicago, and for a year past has been a surgeon in the Cook county hospital.
