One question inrolved in the Homestead strike is exactly that which was settled in the Iowa railway contest. It la whether having received aid f-om public legislation manufacturers shall be responsible to the public for the conduct of their business. With the public it is whether, having allowed by law capital to organize in big corporations, and given it freedom from foreign competition, it shall bold it to a strict accountability in its dealings with its em- ployes and customers. It is idle to go on asserting that such men as Carnegie have made what they own and have a right to do as they please with it. Even if Carnegie were the individual owner of a steel mill he himself managed this would not be true as a matter of common law. Every man holds that property which he has earned with his own hands subject to public welfare, and he cannot dig a basement or erect a building or conduct a business except with due reference to public interests. Right here in Iowa millions of dollars of property were rendered valueless in breweries and distilleries because the public considered the business inimical, and millions all over the land in factories of all kinds have been confiscated because a smoke or smell was offensive to some near-by dweller. But Carnegie is not •the individual owner of wealth secured -in free and open competition with the world. In large share his enormous profits have been made possible by public laws allowing capital to combine in corporations, and today dozens of millionaires who might be in vigorous competition are combined to control prices and the output of steel products. His use of his property is not merelj subject to the common law which applies to all men, but is subject to a specific obligation on account of the direct assistance the public has given him bj .allowing corporations. And this is not the final reason why Mr. Carnagie cannot do as he pleases with what he owns The public to promote general welfare has enacted tariff laws to shield the Carnegie mills from foreign competr tion, and today the steel billets talket of in the Homestead contest sell for nearly $5 a ton more than they woulc but for this assistance from the government. In accepting this aid which has been extended to insure high wages to his employes Mr. Carnegie is under still Tiigher legal and moral obligations to subserve public interests. Everybody knows be could not set fire to his mills, however willing he might be to see "his own" go up in smoke. The common law of the land prohibits that. When this question is looked at right everybody will see that he has no more legal nor moral right to make an unreasonable reduction of wages, or in any other way to harrass or disturb the laborers, who, relying on steady employment during good behavior, have built their homes and made the flourishing little city of Homestead. Neither in law nor in right is Mr. Carnegie anything but a custodian of his property, secure in his control only so long as he uses it for the best interests of all. This matter was all gone over in the fight for railway control in Iowa, and settled right. It was absurd to say that railway corporations which had received public land grants, had condemned right-of-way, and had organized only by special public acts, could use their property to suit themselves. It is just as absurd now to assort that any corporation or other direct beneficiary of public legislation is under no obligations to the public, except as its own whim or caprice may dictate. There is no law for such position, and no reason. Such half-way socialism no intelligent people will long submit to. And it is amusing to hoar the men whose whole fortunes have been made hy these government Interferences with the let-alone policy of " every man for himself and the dovil for us all" talking about the dangers of paternalism and the rights of free contract. One of Mr. Frick's main objections to the Amalgamated union of steel workers is that it prevents free contract among the employes. Is Mr, Frick very KO- Hcitious about the rights of free contract among the buyers of stoel'p Is he anxious that all legislation hindering the purchaser from freedom to buy whore and of whom he pleases bo abolished? It is a serious question what tho outcome of allowing these vast corporations to bo organized oven under efficient public control will bo. But thoro IB no question as to what tho result will he if no efficient public control is instituted. Nothing but anarchy and revolution can come from the evident doctrine of such men us Frick, that capital is entitled to all the privileges the law can bestow, but that labor must be left to shift for itself. Whatever socialism may threaten, a half-way socialism is infinitely more dangerous. .If the government is going to permif; corporations, the government must control them. If congress is going to afford freedom from competition to manufaci urers in the interests of labor, congress must see to it that labor gets the ful benefit. If the Carnegies of America can organize to control the steel busi ness by law, then by law the workers in steel must be protected in organiz ing to control their own wages. There is no other outcome to any system o government interference. It must be impartial and it must protect all classes. There are those who will believe tha Jefferson was right in opposing the or ganizatidn of anything like a corpora tion, and that we would have developed a healthier condition on the old democratic theory of "every tub on its own bottom." But this has not been done and the people must see to it that th fortunes made by the assistance o special public legislation shall now be used to further the best interests of th public, and that that use shall be com pelled by law if necessary. A burgess of Homestead, Mr. Me Luskie, gays: "Of the 3,800 men whr were locked out, 45 per cent are native born. Most of these men were born in thi. state and in this neighborhood, while som come from the south and the west The remaining 53 per cent., if you deduct a few Italians and Swedes, consists of equal num bers of English, Irish, Welsh, and Ger mans. Separate from all these we hav( just 600 Slavs and Hungarians who are no included in the 3,800. Of the foreigners a least one half are naturalized citizens The skilled workmen, who were the one. directly influenced by the change in the scale of wages, are all Americans. In the armor mill, the 119-inch mill, and the con verting and blooming mill the workmen are all Americans. The Englishmen ar considered second in skillfulness and experience. The Americans, English, Irish and Welsh all live together and inter mingle in the town. The Slavs, Hungari ans, and Italians live in separate settle ments." The Capital says the OttumwaDemo crat wrote an article entitled " Raum Mus Go," and it appeared " Rum Must Go. The democrats came in great excitement but Bro. Moore made proper explanation and retractions. Some sport is made of the efforts o the bicyclists for good roads. But nov comes a fine pamphlet from Albert A. Pope the great manufacturer, containing a me mortal to congress, asking that good road and their construction be made a specia object at the world's fair. We shall node this more at length. Mr. Pope has been t< great expense in working up this schem and should succeed. The State Register gays: "Twent; years ago the Register paid 13 cents a pound for the white paper on which it was printed; now it pays three cents, that pric including freight, drayage and placing it in the cellar. During all that time there ha been a tariff on paper. If the tariff is a tax increasing the price by the amount taxed how much is the tax?" Ben. Butler says in connection wit] the Homestead strike: "I further, as lawyer, believe fully that those having charge of the Carnegie company and organ izing this riotous invasion could be indicia and punished with great severity under the present law for conspiracy to break th peace and commit murder, and I hope the} may be, if there is any law or justice in Pennsylvania not overshadowed and con trolled by political considerations." \ . Thomas H. Carter of Montana has been elected chairman of the national re publican committee, and Chris. McGee o Pennsylvania secretary. Carter is an abli man, and a competent leader. He will bo a good chairman. Congress is likely to adjourn next week. Gladstone will have about 40 major ity in the new parliament, and will push his home rule bill. The.Parnellites are nearly obliterated, getting only eight out o some (K) Irish members. ^ Tho Indianola Herald has some ideas about the third party, and expresses them thus forcibly: " There is not a citizen belonging to the third party who ever accomplished anything for prohibition in Iowa or any other state since leaving eithei of tho two old parties. If a man desires to make his life and work effective on the line of prohibition he must identify himsplf with one of the great parties that control the government. The earnest temperance man can accomplish much good even in the democratic party by being active in its councils and shaping its course in the primaries on that question. If a prohibitionist desires to throw away his influence and amount to absolutely nothing in the temperance work, lot him leave the party of deeds and attach himself to an unaccomplishing so-called third party. Think before acting." Bad water has brought 300 cases of typhoid fever to Chicago. The drinking water when boiled is quite tender, Bays the Sioux City Journal's paragrapher. There was a bad wind storm on Okoboji lake last week. The editors who sailed there Saturday may feel thankful that for onco they were not in it. General Weaver is a presumptuous mortal. In his speech in Des Moines he said .hat tho loaders of tho two old parties arc not honest, but he himself is an honest man. Presumption is one of tho general's strong points. » Sam Clark never wrote a sounder paragraph than this: "To us the growing need of tho times is for the American people to get into that frame of mind and freedom, where instead of submitting to organizations, they will maintain their individual ndependouco in the good American fashion against all comers. And that they will make the syndicates and combinations o capital and the Syndicates and combination of labor, make churches and religions, every thing and everybody, and every power in this land, stand up and give an account o itself upon the theory that the individna American freeman is a bigger fellow an has more rights than any party, or church, or syndicate, or labor union, or society o any sort in this world. That the individna as such is the master of America, and tha any person passing out of that individual American freedom and individuality iuU an adherence to any form of organization is passing out from American freedom intt possible slavery and despotism, which iti the supreme rigbt and duty of every indivic ual American freeman, because he is a free man, to resist and oppose." A Washington correspondent of th. Council Bluffs Globe writes that Iowa peo pie here have seen in the papers that there is talk of a fusion in Iowa between the dem ocrats and third party, and the proposition has been discussed to some extent Repre sentative White expresses himself in favo of any reasonable measure that will tak the electoral vote of Iowa away from Har Regarding the assessments of corpor ations the Sioux City Journal says: "Th Iowa executive council is considering th. taxation of telegraph and telephone com panics. The presont assessment is $65 pe mile. The Western Union company alon has over 7,000 miles of line in the state This company asks a reduction on th ground that a line of telegraph costs onl about £SO per mile, and the assessmen made is therefore higher in per cent tha that applied to other property. The execu tive council, however, seems disposed t consider the earning capacity of the line not merely its cost of replacement. Whil a machine is taxed at its actual cash valu and not with reference necessarily to its power of production, yet it is believed tha in regard to a telegraph line a deviatio from the ordinary rules is necessary to d justice to other interests." , Arch Bishop Ireland has preache a sermon since returning from his visit Pope Leo, in which he says: "Among th countries that obtain a special place i Leo's mind is the United States. One rea son of this is because of the vast extent o the church's dominion here, also the fa vored condition and the great liberty it en joys here. It has all the vitality to live All it wishes to enjoy on this favored soil i a freedom which, in most countries it seek in vain. Leo wishes Catholics to be thor oughly loyal to this country, which give them this freedom. He sees also in thi country a type of government which mus be the dominent one. Leo is not a ponti who looks backwards and bewails the past he looks forward to the world of the future Let us be as he is, Catholics of our day an our time, loyal to that country which granl us such bounteous freedom." If Geo. E. Roberts is not the ables editorial writer in Iowa on industrial am economic questions he is dangerously nea it. J. F. Lacey is the republican candi date for congress in the Sixth, Weaver's ol district. Lacey beat Weaver, but Fre White beat him in the general overthrow two years ago. Lacey is a strong man. W. P. Hepburn is sure to be nominat ed for congress in the Eighth. Loucks, chairman of the peoples'con vention, claims enough eleotorial votes t throw the election into the house. Tha would elect Cleveland and the Registe asks why not vote for him direct instead o Weaver. Sioux City presents a pretty specta cle of anarchy and lawlessness. By cut ting down the police force over which th mayor has authority, he has been deprivec of any power to control the saloons am prostitutes, and now the chief of polici has notified both to come back and pay i license. The city is again headquarter for the bum elements of the Missouri val ley. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Garner will have a national bank be fore snow falls again. Arrangements have been made/or a consolidation o the Hancock County and City banks into the First National. Corwith Crescent: Pearl Pugh of Algona was here this week looking foi a location for a store. As he could fine no vacant store room ho did not make arrangements to come. Mr. Albin of West Branch, Iowa, has bought the Whittemore Advocate and takes possession Aug. 1. Mr. Albin is a young man but has had considerable experience. Mr. Floyd has not decid ed where he will go. The Algona district camp meeting will be held at Belmond, commencing Aug. 1. A large number of our people will undoubtedly attend and participate in the exorcises. For tents write immediately to Rev. Kennedy, Belmond Iowa. Spirit and Okoboji lakes are to be restocked with fish in September. A car- oad of fish from the Muscatine slough will be shipped there and unloaded in ,he lakes. This will be good news to those who enjoy fishing and find that ';hey have become scarce in these akos. Estherville Democrat: Hon F. E. Allen has been elected treasurer of the town lot company, on the lino of the new B., C. It. & N. road. Sale of lots n the new town of Armstrong wascom- menced last Tuesday and we are in- ormed that a largo number of buildings vill soon be under way of construction. Emmetsburg Democrat: We are in eceipt of a copy of the annual catalogue of the Northern Iowa Normal school of Algona. The institution seems to have been well patronized during the past fear, and tho promises for the coming ,-ear are encouraging. The institution s evidently under competent management. Carroll Herald: THE UPPER DES MOINES says that we got Algeria's two A. D. Clai'kea mixed. We don't know but one man of that name at Algona, and he is the only original and genuine, Unwittingly we once did him a grave injustice, but it was before we knew the man. Hon. A. D. Clarke is one of Kos- suth'sbest citizens. Blue Earth Post: The declaration o independence was read on July 4, a Estherville, by a young lady, and pleasant feature of the celebration a Burt in Kossuth county was the recit ing of this historic document from memory by a Miss Carrie Goodwin Women are progressing—they can be given the right of suffrage in a years. Palo Alto Reporter: F. M. Taylor o Algona was acting as one of the judges during this week's races Mis. Cora Hibbard, deputy post master Algona, spent last Sunday with relt tives in Emmetsburg Mrs. P Joyce. Mrs. O'Meara and Miss Seato visited Algona. Thursday Mrs Hibbard is visiting at Algona John Winkel of Algona took in th races. Storm Lake Pilot: It was expecte that the free mail delivery at Fond and other experimental points would be abandoned July_ 1, but on June 30 coi gress passed a joint resolution extern ing the service until the loth, whe they hope to be remembered in the reg ular appropriation bill. If the schem is a good one at Fonda it should be giv en to the rest of us when it is continue at these places. Sioux City Journal: S. H. Taft, wh is candidate for something or other o the state prohibition ticket, is out in a open letter scoring the republican par ty because it does not think prohibitio is the paramount issue in national poll tics. He particularly is angry becaus A. B. Cummins was "chosen elector a the recent state convention. He an nounces he cannot support the part longer. This mimic rage is amusing i view of the fact that Mr. Taft accepte a nomination from a party which oppos es the republican party almost a mont before the latter committed the offens complained of. DEMOOEATIO POLITICS. J. "W. ninchon's Congressional Boo: lumping a 'Llttle-.Jas. Taylor th Coming Man. The UPPER DES MOINES is halting little in its congressional boom for , W. Hinchon, and is inclined to unit its forces on Jas. Taylor for secretar of state. The fact is that for severa weeks we have been unable to secur anything but left-handed republica endorsements for our congressiona candidate, while Bro. Taylor is gettin favorable democratic mention. Then too, we can see that Kossuth is nc likely to accept our advice and is a ready planning on going for another o our democratic brethren for congress Still we thank Senator Funk for help ing us out a little: "We feel rea friendly toward Bro. Hinchon of th Algona Courier, we do for a fact; am for this reason we do not want any thing to do with the political move ment to put him up against Dolliver i the Tenth district congressional race Dolliver can beat the best democrat ii the district (and that's Hinchon) by ; majority that will be numbered by th thousand." We think the report tha Bro. Hinchon has promised the Li Verne postofflce to Bro. Platt is hurting his chances, and that he shouk either deny it or write another lette declining a nomination, or his chance are gone. But the star of our candidate for sec retary of state is in the ascendant, ant the Emmetsburg Democrat the pas week says: "Quite a number of Mr Taylor's friends, recognizing his popu larity and efficiency as a member o the state committee, have asked him to become a candidate for secretary o state, but ' it is not understood that hr is a candidate.' Mr. Taylor's businesL at Algona is almost too profitable foi him to accept, and unless matter change it is not likely that he will be a candidate. However, should he con sent to make the race and be honored with the nomination, republicans as well as democrats feel that he woulc make matters decidedly interesting for Mr. McFarland. The latter thorough ly realizes that a nomination is no longer equivalent to an election in lo wa." That looks more like business and it is possible after all that Kossutl had better concentrate. In any even' let it make a move one way or the oth er, and have a lot of these state nomi nations made among our distinguished local diplomats. Campaign Song, Des Moines Capital: The campaign's open don't you see? Hurrah! Hurrah! We'll seat our man in '03, Hurrah! Hurray! The democrats who hope to win Will be boxed up In "American tin," And we'll all feel gay- While Bennie holds down the chair. The democrats said four years ago Hurrah! Hurrah! He'd ruin the country, don't you know Hurrah! Hurray! The McKinley bill would raise the deuce And let a horde of troubles loose, And we'd all feel blue— If Bennie got Into the chair. Four years are past and still we see Hurrah! Hurrah! Good works from reciprocity, Hurrah! Hurray! Protection makes the country fat, There's lots of brains In " Grandpa's Hat' And we all feel good- While Bennie holds down the chair, Ben. Harrison drives a winning steed- Hurrah! Hurrah!

D. Chassell— Free Baths at Okoboji. The Upper Des Moines Editorial association held another successful meeting last week at Spencer, and the members were handsomely received and entertained bj the people. Tho business sessions were held in the K. P. hall, one of the finest in Iowa, Friday, and papers were read by Senator Funk on "Courtesy in Journalism," Geo. E. Roberts on " The Newspaper From a Business Standpoint." and by E. D. Chassell of LeMars on " How Shall We Measure Success." Shorter papers were by Port Barron of Pocahontas Center on " The Job Department" and by Miss Edith Train on representation at the world's fair next fall. In the •afternoon the editors were driven about the city, and in the evening the public hall was crowded for the public exercises. The Manhattan Beach company at Okoboji had kindly furnished its orchestra for the occasion, and Spencer's musicians aided in the musical programme. A. C. Parker, Spencer's well-known lawyer, welcomed the editors in a neat speech, and Hon. Lafe Young gave a witty and entertaining address. As a popular orator he has few superiorsin the west. E. D. Chassell who is candidate for presidential elector in the Eleventh, also gave a fine address. At the close of the exercises, the company adjourned for a banquet given by the Earling hotel. Here till a late, or rather early, hour toasts and responses occupied the time. Among the Spencer toasts, Mrs. Cory's response on the editors' finances was specially bright and entertaining. For the editors R. B. Nicol gave a poem, and Senator Funk, Geo. E. Roberts, Lafe Young, and Al. Adams did the entertaining. Bro. Adams gave one of his characteristic talks on the editor as an epicure, and Geo. E. Roberts was both witty and wise in discussing the merits of public grievances against the editor. Thursday evening a musical pro- gramme was rendered at M. F. Richard's handsome home by Spencer people, which showed that very superior musical talent is possessed by our neighbor. Besides the singing a violin solo hy a young lady, whose name we lost, was very finely rendered, and a mandolin duet by two of the young men of the city was also novel and entertaining. The election of officers resulted in the choice of Geo. E. Roberts, president; Senator Funk, vice-president; Miss Edith Train, secretary. The win- tor meeting Grove. will be held at Eagle Saturday the party were the guests of D. B. Lyons of Des Moines, chief spokesman of the Manhattan Beach company, which has been making such extensive improvements at Okoboji. The best of music, free baths, and toboggan slides, free boats and lunch, and a, fine day served to give all a very keen appreciation of the occasion. The Manhattan company have taken the right course to make Okoboji a first class resort, and when their hotel is up they will have the handsomest place in the west. They are spending a great deal of money, but will get it all back iu public patronage. Altogether the Spencer meeting was very enjoyable and successful, and the editors departed with a pleasant remembrance of the city. Spencer has handsome wide streets, fine business blocks, electric lights, water works and is building a new school building that will be first class. It is a live city and has a hotel to be proud of. LAFE YOUNG'S ADDRESS. Speaking of the editor Mr. Young said: He should he an honest man. He should have a conscience, not necessarily for'publication but as an evidence of good faith. With a charity that suffers long and uncomplainingly the wrongs that other people accuse him of and of which he is not guilty he must be well supplied. He must forgive charges, true or false, of always being "in it" for self-aggrandizement He mustboar up under the too prevalent belief that when he boosts some man into office, he is richly paid for it. He must endure without a murmur that he is liberally compensated for those long hsts of wedding presents, or rather long list of names attached to one present. He must pretend to be all unconscious of those persons who attend to other persons' business and who can read a bad purpose between the lines of his weekly issue. With best at hand to "talk back" the ve ry to all his , , ...... — w uinn. IJO.UK IO Ell fllS detractors he best proves his right to a future seat at the right hand by talking back only in extreme case There could be circumstances under which too kindly an editorial spirit would prevent the other fellow from gottin" what he seems to so much need ,inH without which his life would be devoid nSin he ° u ™ali who not days in the can- for the f e or te ood of the community and pray for it on the seventh, and see his best busi- n all their fob their prav- , ness men send away for ng ' an , d even at has made a mistake that is truth, and not all is false that appears so. When great events stiJ the country the country press gets all there is about it—no matter what infl ences attempt to conceal or misrepre! sent. Out of the entire mass a dis criminating public ultimately finds out the merits of the case. Political lyin» is in no caso justifiable, and in fewcaJi effective. The public usually know. what to believe. With this view of the case, iriuch valuable space oftentimes be saved. This has reference to any paper in this part O f the state, especially now three months before the "affidavit period." Editors are in many cases better men than thev seem. We have oftentimes imagined while reading exchanges that certain editors carried dynamite in every pocket, and have been equally SUP prised to find them personally as Jnnfl tensive as the spring poet, and as angelic as the friend who borrows your last dollar. RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED. Resolved, By the members of the tinner Des Moines Editorial association in semi annual convention assembled, That at this, the sixth semiannual meet ing of our organization, wedofindourselves endued with an increasing faith in ourasso elation as a means for furthering the inter ests. promoting the welfare and fosterinea spirit of fraterualism and liberty amone n. and we do most earnestly exhort all editor* within the limits of this association to re? ular attendance upon these meetings That it would afford this association much pleasure to witness a revival of interest in the Iowa State Editorial association That the officers of this association are entitled to our hearty appreciation for their earnest efforts for the success of this meet ing. That the thanks of this association are due to the Hon. Lafe Young, editor of the Des Moines Daily Capital, for the able and entertaining address upon the subiert " The Editor's Dividing Line. 1 ' ' That our hearts overflow with gratitude to the citizens of Spencer for the many acts of courtesy extended to us during this meeting. We especially appreciate the kindness of Harmony Lodge K. of P. in tendering us the use of their beautiful hall for our meetings; the reception and musicale at the elegant home of Mr. and Mrs. Richards: the pleasant drive about the city; the kindly words of welcome by Mr. A. C. Parker' the sumptuous banquet so generously pro! vided by the business men's association' and the courtesies extended by the proprifr tor of the Earling hotel. We note with much satisfaction the abounding evidences of prosperity and progress in Spencer with her substantial business blocks, numerous churches, good schools, model homes, water works, and electric lights. We shall never forget the kindness of D. B. Lyons and the Manhattan Beach company, through whose courtesies we have spent one of the happiest days of our lives. For the steamer excursions, the excellent music discoursed by the Iowa State Band orchestra, the bath privileges and for the freedom of the entire extensive establishment, we express our heartfelt thanks, and for this resort on the peerless west Okoboji lake, our unqualified admiration. NO PUETHEE OUTBEEAZ, The Troups nrc Sttll nt Homestead- Strikers Arrested—Tho Mills Still Closed. This morning's papers contain no reports of further troubles at Homestead. The leaders of the strikers have been arrested, and have retained Gen..B, P. Butler and Gov. Hoadley to defend themselves. The mills have not started although Monday was the time set. Non-union men do not seem to rush in to take the vacant places. Some of yesterday's dispatches tell all that has occurred during the week. KILLED BY A MILITIAMAN. David Lester, a militiaman, while drunk, ran a bayonet into Frank C.Cal- houn, inflicting a wound which will prove fatal. LABOR MEN CONSULTING A dozen of the best educated and most conservative of the locked out men at Homestead left for the east Monday with great secrecy. It is believed they have gone to labor with a lot of Belgians said to be on the way to take the places of the Amalgamated men. The Amalgamated lodge of workmen at the Carnegie union mills this morning resolved to stand firm in the strike, and tendered the Homestead men both financial and physical assistance. TO BE PROSECUTED. Monday afternoon informations were lodged before alderman charging murder against Hugh O'Donnell, principal leader of the Homestead men; John McLuckie, burgess of Homestead; Sylvester Critchlow, Anthony Flaherty, Samuel Bisket, James Flannugan.Hugh Ross all labor leaders in the recent Homestead troubles. They are specifically charged with the murder of T. J. Connors and Silar Myers, Pinkertons, killed in tho fight. All the accused will probably be arrested this afternoon except O'Donnell, who is out of town. Tho informations were made by Secretary Lovejoy of tho Carnegie company. Constables left at once for Homestead and are now looking for the men. The news created much excitement among the strikers as tho action was not yet expected, Gossip about this late move on the part of the company was very free this evening.

COUNTER PROSECUTIONS. Informations will be filed against Messrs. Frick and Lovejoy and Manager Potter. The general impression is this is the beginning of the great legal struggle here. The attorneys /or the strikers said the other night that no information would be made against Frick, Lovejoy and Potter now, and it was possible no retaliatory measures would bo taken by the strikers. If » was decided to take such action the charge would probably bo conspiracy. From a source close to Carnegie it was learned that the firm had the names or 215 strikers against whom they believe they have enough evidence to convict, as accessories to the murder of the irinkerton men. It is their intention to outer informations every day until the entire 215 have been arrested. FOR real estate time loans at the very lowest rates, make inquiry at the Koe- euth County bank.
