As this is unlikely to occur, and as a political interpretation will be put upon the whole affair, it is entirely probable that public opinion will never be fully satisfied as to which side has been really responsible for the trouble. At this distance It appears, however, that the Carnegie company began the contest. It appears further that it was with a deliberate purpose to break up all labor organizations in which their employes are interested. The reduction in wages proposed by the company, if its own statements be accepted, was not a sufficient explanation for its subsequent conduct. Men do not barricade property like fortresses and hire private soldiery to shoot employes because of a difference of one dollar a ton in estimating the value of steel billets by which the wages of 350 workers were to be established. It seems evident that from the first the Carnegie company planned for war, and that a war of extermination to the union of steel workers. That the contest was accepted by the employes from the first in the spirit in which it was begun seems also to hear out this interpretation. For it is incredible that any body of citizens should expose themselves to the bullets silver coinage, and the prohibition platform contains no notice of that So that here we have two organizations of nation savers ready to throw themselves into the breach and protect humanity from the corruption which the old parties are made up of, neither of which considers the plan of the other worthy of mention. In view of this fact it will not be strange if voters generally accept the verdict of each as to the other, and goon as of old without paying any attention to either. And in doing this they will be guided only by the commonest of the lights of experience, for who that will vote has not tested more than once the worthlessness of these specifics warranted to cure everything? Each of these bodies of enthusiasts knows that the claims of the other are unwarranted, but each goes on to assert its own with all the confidence and assurance of the inspired prophets. And while each ignores the other they still agree that in their success lies the only salvation of the republic. They both denounce the old parties as corrupt and dangerous, but out of the members of the old parties they propose to build up purity and principle in politics without any change of character. It is a fortunate thing that there are two of them in the field, for the absurdity of their claims is then best seen by considering the vigor with which they are pressed in two entirelv opposing directions. halls. But when the money tot those objects i* secured by screwing down the wages of his laborers out of all consistency with his millions of profits the Pittsbnrg {magnate gets no sympathy from the public," As Lafe Young sees it: "It is no credit to moral progress and philanthropic intention that men like Carnegie are not prepared to yield to some demands that they may feel are unjust rather than to provoke strikes, loss of wages and great suffering among their employes." That high protection paper, the New York Press, says: "Even If the strikers were in the wrong the slaughter of men, some of them fathers of families, was a cruel outrage. The great state of Pennsylvania should have other resources for the maintenance of order than to permit mercenaries from other states to shoot down the men of that state." laid out to run north and south, avenues east and west. The depot will be located at the foot of Sixth, which will be the principal street The State Bank of Armstrong is to be on the southwest corner of Second avenue and Sixth street, which location may be considered the heart of the city. Several fine buildings are projected and the town will boom from the start. Elaine has sent a letter to the new secretary of state congratulating him as "My Dear Mr. Foster: I ought follows: Pinkerton detectives reduction was pro- of 400 well-armed because a slight posed in the wages of 350 out of some 4,000 of them. The fight was not, because of the dispute over wages—at least any such dispute as the Carnegie company represents. There was a deeper cause than that, and that cause undoubtedly was a recognition on the part of the employes of Homestead that Mr. Frick proposed once for all to pay what he pleased, and by breaking down their union to put them where for the future they would be defenseless to resist any reduction he might see fit to make. It is a war between organized capital and organized labor, the laborers as usual at a disadvantage, both in legal status and in ability to hold out. ORGANIZED CAPITAL. The whole question in volved at Homestead, just as it is in every late labor contest, is whether capital shall be protected in organizing and labor not: It is whether the public shall allow corporations of money, trusts of corporations, tariffs for capital, and then leave the workingman to shift for himself, single handed. The Oarnegies have organized an immense :steel trust, if reports are true; the steel workers have a union with authority to contract as to wages. The individual companies in the steel trust are legally organized, and the Carnegie doubtless likewise. No recognition is given to the steel workers, and no public support in their fight. The public gives the Carnegies a monopoly of the American steel market to allow them to pay high wages, . It gives the laborer no means whatever for securing those wages, except by individual appeal to the generosity of a mill boss. The absurdity of this .situation is be- "coming very strongly emphasized by such occurrences as those at Homestead when the law La taken into private hands on both sides, and hired mercenaries for the corporations and a non-legal union for the laborers shoot each other in cold blood. The .question arises why is all authority for combination given to capital? Why is not the labor union made legal, and the differences between organized capital and organized labor settled as they should bo by the arbitration of duly- appointed civil authorities? There are two coursns open. Ono 'is to accept tho remedy suggested by Judge Hubburd and do away with all private corporations. When no public support is given to such men as Carnegie then they can sit back und make what contracts they please. This is the ideal of democratic government. But so long us by law men can combine their capital, and by law bo given freedom from competition, they should by law be compelled to repay this public benefit. Just us the railways of Iowa have been compelled to abide by the decision of a non-purlisun board, so should all manufacturing corporations he compelled to abide by the decision of disinterested civil officers in those disputes with their employes. THE ENGLISH ELECTIONS. It is now conceded that with the Irish members Gladstone will have a majority in the coming parliament, although it may not be large enough to insure the success of home rule. The voting has been going on for ten days, elections in various districts coming at different times, instead of one day, as here. Over half the members are chosen, and careful estimates give the liberals over forty majority. This will make Gladstone again premier of England, the position he lost when he first presented his home-rule bill in 1886, and was defeated in the election. The difficulty with so small a majority is that of getting all of the members to agree on a policy. The liberal party is made up of a great many conflicting elements, and Gladstone may have as much trouble to secure harmony as republicans and democrats are having here on the silver question. And there an adverse vote on a leading measure means that the ministry must resign. And if no new ministry can be formed that can get a working majority parliament itself is tion ordered. dissolved and a new elec- The conservatives have held the last parliament nearly its legal life of seven years. The new one may not last one year. Still home rule is sure to come, as the change of sentiment in the past six years shows, and every admirer of Gladstone's last and greatest fight for the right of the masses will hope that he may live to successfully champion this act of justice to Ireland. sooner to have written you a word of congratulation on your appointment as secretary of state, which I most heartily do now. I am very glad you are appointed. You will be able to do better service than any man new to the department Very truly and cordially your friend, Jas. G. Elaine." Judge Cole presides at a Weaver ratification meeting at Des Moines tomorrow evening. The third party suite him. The democrats are trying to make a tariff issue out of the Homestead strike. Lafe Young knocks the bottom out of their argument in one sentence: "The question arises, if Andrew Carnegie, while making millions out of a protected industry, has been heartless and mean to his men, how much better would he have been to his em- ployes if he had been losing money under free trade!" We suggest that some free trader answer that question. Lon Hardin says of Dolliver: " He is a Chauncey Depew in oratory, a Bob Ingersoll in construction of bright sayings, a James G. Blaine in statesmanship, and an Abraham Lincoln in honor and integrity." That don't leave much to be said. Cyrus W. Field died on Monday. THE TROOPS OH THE GBOUBD. On July 1 a dispatch was sent ffif; h Pittsburg announcing that the following firms engaged ih the manufacture of steel and iron had been merged into the "Carnegie Steel company:" Carnegie Bros. & Co., Carnegie, Phipps & Co., Allegheny Bessemer Steel company, Keystone Bridge company, the Edgar Thompson fucnaces, the Edgar Thompson Steel works, Duquesne Steel works, Homestead Steel works, Lucy furnaces, Upper Union mills, Lower Union mills, Beaver Falls mills, Scotia ore mines, Larimer Coke works,,and Youghiogheny Coke works. The capital of the new combination was announced at $25,000,000, and the number of employes at 40,000. Everybody will rejoice that Henry M. Stanley was defeated for parliament in. England. If there is anything despicable in this world it is a renegade American, IN THIS NEIGHBOBHOOD. A gentlemen from Eau Claire, Wis., is figuring on starting a paper at Armstrong. Nearly half a car of beer was transferred at Elmore last Saturday, destined for Iowa points. Humboldt Republican: Miss Nettie Lane started last Wednesday for Algona, where she will make a week's visit. Fort DodgeTimes: TheBowyerfami- ly of Algona is visiting the S. W. Gray and the Marquette families of this city. John Jenswold of Duluth and P. O. Cassidy of Oklahoma, both old Em- metsburgers, were delegates to thepeo- ple's convention at Omaha. Livermore Independent: Miss Anna Hunt finished her visit with her sister, Mrs. P. B. Crose, and returned to her Bancroft home last Thursday. Humboldt Independent: W. W. Scott, a tinner who is well known in Humboldt, now of Algona, received a patent on a new tea kettle last week. Elmore Eye: If Bro. Platt of the Lu- Verne News knows what is good for him he will march on Whittemore with a stuffed club and kill that poet (?) correspondent. Estherville Republican: Dickinson, Emmet and northern Kossuth counties need an annual exhibit of their productions and Estherville is just the place for such exhibitions. The Republican again urges Esthervillo citizens to do something in this matter. Mr. Barr of Algona J. S. Clarkson was interviewed in New York several days before the fight at Carnegie's mills, and said; "Carnegie's vast fortune has been made by his workmen and he has written much about the responsibilities of wealth. Now was his opportunity to sustain his reputation as a philanthropist. His workmen must be right in their contentions. There has been no such convulsions in business as could possibly make these great reductions necessary, Mr. Carnegie should settle the difficulty at once and bo generous to those men. He has discussed tho beauties of co-ope/-a- tion in magazine articles and he should now put his theories into practice." TJIK NKtV PAUTI1SS. The platforms of the new parties •with national tickets in the field are a strange commentary on each other, and illustrate again how readily men overestimate tho importance of their own ideas. The prohibition party makes no test of party fealty but opposition to the liquor traffic, whilu the people's party doesn't pay this plan the respect of a passing notice. On the other hand the people's party makes everything of the money question und especially free Tho State Register sizes up the un- der-strapper who Is running Carnegie's mills: " Frick's case is that of a man who thinks ho can do as he pjcuses and finds out in course of time that he is mistaken. It is to bo regretted that such men get into power. They do more harm than six other and better men can undo in a- life time. Mr. Carnegie should come home and keep an eye on his man." Tho New York Tribunesuys: "Lives have been lost on both sides, and families desolated in a struggle at the Homestead works which would have been prevented by wiser and Justcr action on both sides." Johnson Brigham says: "If trade conditions imperatively call for reduction of wages, the fact would have been evident to the Amalgamated union had it seuted to them aright." boon pre- Renwick Times: is in town taking orders for "'The Chautauqua Drawing Board and Writing Desk." This board is a teacher in itself and contains so much of merit every way that we will not attempt description. It should be in every home that can possibly afford it.

An Estherville family o-i ve thanks through the Republican foAhe "untiring attention and fine medical skill of" the doctor under whose ministrations their son died. We wonder if thanks was all they gave him. The Emmetsburg Democrat says"Algona, Estherville, Sheldon, and Spencer are all right, but, for business, they must pass the palm to Emmetsburg. Hurrah for Emmetsburg." All eause the Ormsby investment company swells the post office businessand makes big reports for the institution at the Burg. Corwith Crescent: Ray Armstrong and his sister Mabel went to Bancroft Saturday evening, and remained over the Fourth. They report a splendid time and Bancroft doing itself proud in its celebration P. M. Daniels sold his trotting horse Wildwood to Mr. Chayman for §1,200. Good price for a good horse. Emmetsburg Democrat: Thos. Carmody has signed a contract with the Whittemore farmers to take charge of their elevator at that place and to have the general management of the business. These farmers are looking for a competent and reliable man and they have certainly found him. If Mr. Carmody cannot manage their business State Mllltln Take Charge at Homestead—The Strikers Keep the Pence and Await Developements. A full report of the strife at Homestead between Carnegie's workmen and the Pinkertons isgiven on the second page. Since that was printed Gov. Patterson has ordered out 8,000 state militia, who are now at Homestead. The strikers received the troops cordi ally and will keep the peace while they are present. But if Carnegie runs in non-union men as soon as the troopsare gone trouble will begin again. A yesterday's dispatch reads: Now that troops have arrived the Carnegie company will probably attempt to work the mills with non-union men. If they do so no trouble is anticipated until the troops are withdrawn, when trouble will ensue if the nonunion men remain. A committee of citizens and Amalgamated association men called on Major General Snowden this afternoon to tender him the good wishes and co-operation of the Amalgamated association and people of Homestead. Also to request the military to receive the workmen of the town in a body headed by brass bands. General Snowden refused to recognize the Amalgamated association or any authority except the governor of Pennsylvania and the sheriff of the county, and declined to consider the proposition that the townspeople pass in review before the troops and tender them a reception. FERE OBAOKEB FATALITIES. The Fourth Attended by the Usual Accidents — Some Serious Cases In This Neighborhood. The Fourth of July celebration at Webster City ended in a terrible tragedy at 10 o'clock. During the display of fireworks at the court house a large rocket was accidentally discharged, going into the crowd and striking Win. Hazlett of Evanston, 111., in the face. The whole left side of his face and head was torn away and the stick penetrated his brain through his right eye. He was taken to the auditor's office and physicians called, who pronounced him fatally injured. He was a young man 19 years of age, the oldest son of a widowed mother, and had just finished school at Pawpaw. He came Friday for a two weeks' visit with relatives. He was not conscious after the accident. Two others, a boy and a girl, were slightly injured by the same rocket. ROCKET EXPLODES AT ESTHERVILLE. An Estherville young man picked up a rocket on the Fourth, which he supposed had been discharged, but he was sadly mistaken, as the fuse was only THE FAMED BLACK HILLS, Some of the Things Seen and Heard During a Three Weeks' Trip in That Country. R:ch in Mineral Products—Other Resources—Fertile Valleys—Lots of Fine Scenery. Having recently returned from the Black Hills, the writer has, very naturally, been beset by many questions from friends concerning that now somewhat famous country, and perhaps the most effectual manner in which these inquiries can be answered is through an article descriptive of the sections visited. The trip was make from Algona by way of Sioux City, thence over the Fremont, Elkhorn & Missouri Valley road; and while I am not paid for saying so, it is but the truth to record the fact that that road is one of the best equipped in the west, and its officers and subordinates possess the instincts of gentlemen from one end of the line to the other. No pains is spared to see that their passengers have all the conveniences of modern railway travel. Fine Wagner sleepers are run the entire length of the road, and one steps off the train at Deadwood wholly lacking " that tired feeling" which so often comes as a result of an 800-mile ride. I may as well say something about Deadwood now. It is popularly supposed that Deadwood is a place of ten or fifteen thousand people, but this is not so. Notwithstanding it contains all the modern conveniences—and vices, too—of a city of a hundred thousand, the fact remains that not more than 2,500 people call Deadwood their home. It is just about the size of our own town of Algona, no better built as regards business buildings, and not to be compared for residences; but it is the money center of the Black Hills, and I presume I should be on the safe side in saying that it is the wealthiest town of its size in the United States. It is built in the world famed Whitewood gulch, has one street, which runs the length of the town, and is overlooked by precipitous and picturesque rocky cliffs on either side. You ask why the town is not larger, and you are answered by the question, "How could it be larger when the ground is already all occupied?" The gulch is narrow, and is chiefly occupied with business buildings, railway depots, etc., while many of the residences are on the side hills, 50 to 75 feet above the city proper, and are reached by long flights of stairs. The whole presents a decided and perhaps pleasing contrast with the towns and cities of our prairie country. I am asked about the mineral product of the Black Hills, and I can safely say that it is not only abundant, but beyond all computation so far as is yet known. I talked with several well-posted men on this subject, and the universal verdict was that the development of the mineral resources of the Black Hills is as yet only begun. I spent one day in the great stamp mills at Lead City, three miles from Deadwood. This is said to be the largest plant of the kind in the world, and perhaps it is true. The Ole- partly burned and still on fire, and it exploded inhishand, burning it terribly. FATALLY DURNED. Dayton in Webster county had a fatal accident with fire crackers. ~" seven-year-old daughter of O. M. ^ ic son, of the firm of Anderson, Oleson & Co., was fatally burned, her clothing having caught fire from fire crackers, Sunday afternoon. She died the next morning at 2 o'clock. SHOT AT ARNOLD'S PARK. _The careless handling of a target rifle at Arnold's park during the Fourth of July celebration resulted in shootino- little Charlie Wilcox, son of R. id Wilcox, through both legs. The gun was in the hands of Carlos Hazzard, who was running a shooting gallery at the side of the pavilion. It appears that after the rifle had been fired some time, Mr. Hazzard thought that it had become leaded. After wiping it out our informant tells us that he placed a catridge in the weapon and pulled the trigger. It would seem that the person was not very careful as to what direction the rifle was pointed, for the bullet struck the boy, who was standing at the edge of the crowd of onlookers. The bullet passed entirely through the fleshy part of both thighs. HAND BLOWN OFF AT FORT DODGE. Willie Holmes had his left hand badly blown to pieces Monday at Fort Dodge. He held a large cannon fire- At any rate there are nearly SOO stamps running day and night, crushing the gold quartz and turning out gold at the rate of ?250,000 a month. The shaft is now down T50 feet with a "level," or drift, at-.each 100 feet.' We watched the ponderous machinery in the hoisting works, where, every few seconds, a dump cart loaded with ore came up and was trundled away to the crushers,' where it is thrown in. Here it is broken up into pieces the size of a walnut, and these go to the stamps and are there pulverized. The entire process by which the gold is extracted from the solid rock would require too much space for description here. One should never go to that country without seeing all there is to be seen, as the inform- there is worth more than there is a as a ram's The republican Boston Record says: " A littlo less ' triumphant democracy" and a littlo more humanity and decency and charity is what we need from Andrew Carnegie. It is all very well to go on putting up libraries and endowing gorgeous concert \ successfuly and satisfactorily, no man can. The selection is an ideal one. Our readers will remember the account of the murder of And. Vidset in a drunken row at Elmore last fall. Leedahl, whojlivos in Kossuth and who was arrested for striking the blow, has just been acquitted. The doctors testified that the blow was from something other than the naked hand, and no one could swear that Leedahl had any weapon or used any. It looks as though a clear cut murder would go without any successful attempt to locate the murderer. EsthervilleRepublican: The plat of the new town of Armstrong has been recorded and the sale of lots will commence next Tuesday. The streets are cracker too long and it exploded in hib hand. The force of the explosion was so great that it tore three fingers and the thumb off. It was necessary to dress them down snug to the hand The only finger left is the index finger! and that is not entirely whole. The cause of the accident seems to be that the fuse burned faster than ho thought it would and exploded the fire cracker before he had time to let it go. Cheap Excursion Rates, The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul ation one gets it costs. From Deadwood to Lead City narrow gauge railway, crooked ^ „ horn, and which has a grade of 437 feetTto the mile, or over 1,300 feet in the three miles. As one goes dashing around the short curves and sharp inclines ho feels a sort of involuntary relief at not having gone over the ledge, and yet the route is popular and attractive, chiefly, perhaps because it is dangerous. A train went off the track only a few days before we were there, but that made no difference; people were just as crazy to make the trip. As we started out from Deadwood we overheard the conductor giving instructions as to what should be done in case the train should flv the track-not a very comforting thought to people who were there merely to see the sights, and not for the purpose of offering themselves as a sacrifice in a railway acc£ dent. XprCSS ' on : j -•M that dur- mg my stay in the Black Hills my head qarterswereatSpearfish, 15 miles north" west of Dogwood. The reader will say a queer name for a town, and so It comes, I believe from an Indian Spearflsh; they issue both daily andweeldir editions, and are making a marked sncce!* of the business. Spearflsh is also the seat of the state normal school. Here fg building, located about half a mile tron town, which cost $25,000. A beautiful campus of 40 acres, donated for the nnr pose, surrounds it. The institution hag a regular attendance of 250 to 300 pupils, and has for some years been under the personal supervision of Prof. Cook, one of the most accomplished and best-known educators in the west. The school is one of the foremost institutions of the kind In the country and stands as a monument to the enenrv and perseverance which are characteristic of the western people. 1 spent three days in the placer mines In company with three others I took in what is known as the Bear Gulch country the region where the best placer mines are now located. If anyone thinks placer mhi. ing is one round of pleasure, or that all one has to do is to just pick up the gold la big chunks, he should dispel the thoughtatonce There are no placer mines now left in the Hills that are really worth working, though the fact remains that in the early days fortunes were made there in a few weeks. All the gulches have been worked over and over again, and we saw men working claims for the third time. The majority of these miu- ers are getting out from ?3 to $3.50 a day which is no adequate compensation of course. The real reason why they stay there at all is because all of them are holding down tin mines, out of which they fondly hope in time to realize fortunes. My judgment is that they will be disappointed —not because there is no tin there, for there is plenty of it despite tho iteration of the tin plate liars—but because they will never be able to sell their claims for the fabulous sums at which they hold them. It takes immense capital to develop a tin mine, and this fact seems to be lost sight of. But I canuot here discuss the tin question; time and space are lacking. I went into tho placer mines to see what they did and how they did it. I took a hand in and became a placer miner for the nonce myself. I helped to dig and wash out some gold, and brought it home with me. Thus far only one man has suggested that I might have bought it, and he was promptly knocked down and dragged out as an awful warning to others. I interviewed several placer miners. The story was the same in each case—they had not struck it rich yet, but they hoped to soon. One man I met in Bear Gulch gave me bis history. It is no doubt a fair samplo of all, so I give it: He said he once lived at La Pere, Mich. That was in 1876. He was division freight agent on the Chicago & Lake Huron road. He got the Black Hills fever. So he resigned his position. The manager of the road sent for him and he went to headquarters, where he was offered, if he would remain, the position of general freight agent of the road. " No," he said, "I'm going to the Black Hills and dig for gold; in a couple of years I will have money enough to come back here and buy your old railroad and hire you to work for me." I asked him if he had yet bought the road, and he said: "No; I have been here 16 years, and have never had enough to get out with; in fact I expect to die right here in this gulch." He is not yet an old man, but he has wasted the prime portion of his life in a fruitless search for a fortune. He is only one of thousands who have done the same thing. There is nothing in it so far as placer mining in the Black Hills is concerned. The only miners there who are making anything are those who are working for the big mining corporations. Those men get from $3.50 to $5 a day, according to their expertness, and in most cases they are sober, well-to-do men of families, have built themselves comfortable homes, and are in a prosperous condition. The Black Hills is a grand country to visit. I could fill several columns with interesting incidents of the trip, of the stories told of Indian depredations, the difficulties which beset the early settlers, and all that, but the limits of a brief newspaper article will not permit. They are some 5,000 feet above sea level, and consequently the climate is dry, healthy, and invigorating. But one will find it hard to subsist on climate and antelope tracks. Something more substantial is needed. There are plenty of opportunities there for profitable investments, but not more than elsewhere. There are rich men and poor men there just as in any other country. The lown fanner who owns a quarter section of land has a better gold mine than he can get there, and those who are disposed to complain of tho wet weather and poor prospects for crops would do well to take a trip such as I did. If he does not come to the same conclusion that I have, it will be because he sees things through wholly different eyes. The reader must not infer that the towns I have mentioned are the only ones in the Black Hills. There are numerous others, mostly good ones, but I did not visit them all, and even had I done so it would be impossible at this time to make distinctive mention of them. Among them none is less famous than Hot Springs, 15 miles west of Railway company will sell special excursion tickets via Arnold's park, viz: To Manhattan Beach and return for $2.95, and to Hotel Orleans for §3.35.
