One question involved in the Homestead strike is exactly that which was settled in the Iowa railway contest. It Is 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 hold 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 merely 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 by 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 competition, and today the steel billets talked of in the Homestead contest sell for nearly $5 a ton more than they would 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 higher legal and moral obligations to subserve public interests. Everybody knows he could not set fire to his mills, however willing he might bo 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 assert 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 hear the men whose whole fortunes have been made by these government Interferences with the let-alone policy of " every man for himself and the devil for us all" talking about the dangers of paternalism and the rights of free contract. One of Mr. Flick's main objections to the Amalgamated union of steel workers is that it prevents free contract among the employes. Is Mr. Frick very so- licitious about the rights of free contract among the buyers of steel? Is he anxious that all legislation hindering the purchaser from freedom to buy where and of whom he pleases be abolished? It is a serious question what the outcome of allowing these vast corporations to be organized even under efficient public control will be. But there is no question as to what the result will be if no efficient public control is instituted. Nothing but anarchy and revolution can come from the evident doctrine of such men as 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 them. If congress is' going to afford freedom from competition to manufacturers in the interests of labor, congress must see to it that labor gets the full benefit. If the Carnegies of America can organize to control the steel business by law, then by law the workers in steel must be protected in organizing to control their own wages. There is no other outcome to any system of government interference. It must be Impartial and it must protectallclasses. There are those who will believe that Jefferson was right in opposing the organization of anything like a corpora^ tion, and that we would have developed a healthier condition on the old democratic theory of "every tub oh its own bottom." But this has not been done, and the people must see to it that the fortunes made by the assistance of special public legislation shall now be used to further the best interests of the public, and that that use shall be compelled by law if necessary. make the syndicates and combinations of capital and the syndicates and combinations of labor, makechurches and religions, everything and everybody, and every power in this land, stand up and give an account of itself upon the theory that the individual American freeman is a bigger fellow and has more rights than any party, or church, or syndicate, or labor union, or society of any sort in this world. That the individual as such is the master of America, and that any person passing out of that individual American freedom and individuality into an adherance to any form of organization, is passing out from American freedom into possible slavery and despotism, which it is the supreme right and duty of every individual American freeman, because he is a freeman, to resist and oppose." A burgess of Homestead, Mr. Mc- Luskie, says: "Of the 3,800 men who were locked out, 45 per cent, are native born. Most of these men were born iu this state and in this neighborhood, while some come from the south and the west. The remaining 05 per cent., if you deduct a few Italians and Swedes, consists qf equal numbers of Enelish, Irish, Welsh, and Germans. Separate from all these we have Just 000 Slavs and Hungarians who are not included in the 8,800. Of the foreigners at least one half are naturalized citizens. The skilled workmen, who wore the ones directly influenced by the change in the scale of wages, are all Americans. In the armor mill, the 119-inch mill, and the converting and blooming mill the workmen are all Americans. The Englishmen are considered second in skillfulness and experience. The Americans, English, Irish, and Welsh all live together and intermingle in the town. The Slavs, Hungarians, and Italians live in separate settlements." The Capital says the Ottumwa Democrat wrote an article entitled " Raum Must Go," and it appeared " Rum Must Go." The democrats came in great excitement, but Bro. Moore made proper explanations and retractions. Some sport is made of the efforts of the bicyclists for good roads. But now comes a flne pamphlet from Albert A. Pope, the great manufacturer, containing a memorial to congress, asking that good roads and their construction be made a special object at the world's fair. We shall notice this more at length. Mr. Pope has been to great expense in working up this scheme and should succeed. The State Register says: " Twenty years ago the Register paid 18 cents a pound for the white paper on which it was printed; now it pays three cents, that price including freight, drayage and placing it in the cellar. During all that time there has 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 with the Homestead strike: "I further, as a lawyer, believe fully that those having charge of the Carnegie company and organizing this riotous invasion could be indicted and punished with great severity under the present law for conspiracy to break the peace and commit murder, and I hope they may bo, if there is any law or justice in Pennsylvania not overshadowed and controlled by political considerations." . Thomas H. Carter of Montana has been elected chairman of the national republican committee, and Chris. McGee of Pennsylvania secretary. Carter is an able man, and a competent leader. He will be a good chairman. A Washington correspondent of the Council Bluffs Globe writes that Iowa people here have seen in the papers that there is talk of a fusion in Iowa between the democrats and third party, and the proposition has been discussed to some extent. Representative White expresses himself in favor of any reasonable measure that will take the electoral vote of Iowa away from Har- risou. Regarding the assessments of corporations the Sioux City Journal says: "The loWa executive council is considering the taxation of telegraph and telephone companies. The present assessment is $05 per mile. The Western Union company alone has over 7,000 miles of line in the state. This company asks a reduction on the ground that a line of telegraph costs only about $80 per mile, and the assessment made is therefore higher in per cent, than that applied to other property. The executive council, however, seems disposed to consider the earning capacity of the line, not merely its cost of replacement. While a machine is taxed at its actual cash value and not with reference necessarily to its power of production, yet it is believed that in regard to a telegraph line a deviation from the ordinary rules is necessary to do justice to other interests." , Arch Bishop Ireland 'has preached a sermon since returning from his visit to Pope Leo, in which ho says: " Among the countries that obtain a special place in Leo's mind is the United States. One reason of this is because of the vast extent of the church's dominion here, also the favored condition and the great liberty it enjoys here. It has all the vitality to live. All it wishes to enjoy on this favored soil is a freedom which, in most countries it seeks in vain. Leo wishes Catholics to be thoroughly loyal to this country, which gives them this freedom. He sees also in this country a type of government which must be the dominent one. Leo is not a pontiff 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 and our time, loyal to that country which grants us such bounteous freedom." but one man of that name at Algqna, 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 of independence was read oh July 4, at Estherville, by a young lady, and a pleasant feature of the celebration at Burt in Kossuth county was the reciting of this historic document from memory by a Miss Carrie Goodwin. Women are progressing—they can be given the right of suffrage in a few years. Palo Alto Reporter: F. M. Taylor of Algona was acting as one of the judges during this week's races Miss Cora Hibbard, deputy post master at Algona, spent last Sunday with relatives in Emmotsburg Mrs. P. Joyce, Mrs, O'Meara and Miss Seaton visited Algona, Thursday Mrs. Hibbard is visiting at Algona John Wlnkel of Algona took in the races. Storm Lake Pilot: It was expected that the free mail delivery at Fonda and other experimental points would be abandoned July 1, but on June 30 congress passed a joint resolution extending the service until the 15th, when they hope to be remembered in the regular appropriation bill. If the scheme is a good one at Fonda it should be given to the rest of us when it is continued at these places. Sioux City Journal: S. H. Taft, who is candidate for something or other on the state prohibition ticket, is out in an open letter scoring the republican party because it does not think prohibition is the paramount issue in national poll- tics. He particularly is angry because A. B. Cummins was chosen elector at the recent state convention. He announces he cannot support the party longer. This mimic rage is amusing in view of the fact that Mr. Taft accepted a nomination from a party which opposes the republican party almost a month before the latter committed the offense complained of. Congress week. is likely to adjourn next If Geo. E. Roberts is not the ablest editorial writer in Iowa on industrial and economic questions he is dangerously near it. J. F. Lacey is the republican candidate for congress in the Sixth, Weaver's old district. Lacey boat Weaver, but Fred White beat him in the general overthrow two years ago. Lacey is a strong man. W. P. Hepburn is sure to be nominated for congress in the Eighth. Loucks, chairman of the peoples'con- vention, claims enough electorial votes to throw the election into the house. That would elect Cleveland and the Register asks why not vote for him direct instead of Weaver. Gladstone will have about 40 majority in the new parliament, and will push his home rule bill. The,Parnellites are nearly obliterated, getting only eight out of some 00 Irish members. may threaten, a half-way socialism is infinitely more dangerous. .If the government is going to permifi corporations, the government must control must The 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 either of the 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 iu 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, says 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 once they wore not in it. General Weaver is a presumptuous mortal. In his speech in Des Moines he said that tlie leaders of the two old parties are not honest, but he himself is an honest man. Presumption is one of the general's strong points. * Sain Sioux City presents a pretty spectacle of anarchy and lawlessness. By cutting down the police force over which the mayor has authority, he has been deprived of any power to control the saloons and prostitutes, and now the chief of police has notified both to come back and pay a license. The city is again headquarters for the bum elements of the Missouri valley. Clark never wrote a sounder paragraph than this: " To us the growing need of the 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 independence iu the good American fashion all comers. And that they will IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Garner will have a national bank before snow falls again. Arrangements have been made for a consolidation of the Hancock County and City banks into the First National. Corwith Crescent: Pearl Pugh of Algona was here this week looking for a location for a store. As he could find no vacant store room he did not make arrangements to come. Mr. Albin of West Branch, Iowa, has bought the Whittemoro Advocate and takes possession Aug. 1. Mr. Albin is a young man but has had considerable experience. Mr. Floyd has not decided 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 exercises. For tents write immediately to Rev. Kennedy, Belmond, Iowa, Spirit and Okoboji lakes are to be restocked with fish in September. A carload of fish from the Muscatine slough will be shipped there and unloaded in the lakes. This will be good news to those who enjoy fishing and find that they have become scarce in these lakes. Estherville Democrat: Hon F. E. Allen has been elected treasurer of the town lot company, on the line of the new B., C. R. & N. road. Sale of lots in the new town of Armstrong was commenced last Tuesday and we are informed that a large number of buildings will soon be under way of construction. Emmetsburg Democrat: Wo are in receipt 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 year, and the promises for the coming year are encouraging. The institution is evidently under competent management. Carroll Herald: THE UPPER DES MOINES says that we got Algpna's two A. D, Clarkes mixed. We don't know DEMOOBATIO POLITICS. J. TV. Illnchon's Congressional Boom Jjlmplng a Llttlo-JaB. Taylor the Coming Man. The UPPER DES MOINES is halting a little in its congressional boom for J. W. Hinchon, and is inclined to unite its forces on Jas. Taylor for secretary of state. The fact is that for several weeks we have been unable to secure anything but left-handed republican endorsements for our congressional candidate, while Bro. Taylor is getting favorable democratic mention. Then, too, we can see that Kossuth is not likely to accept our advice and is already planning on going for another of our democratic brethren for congress. Still we thank Senator Funk for helping us out a little: "We feel real friendly toward Bro. Hinchon of the Algona Courier, we do for a fact; and for this reason we do not want anything to do with the political movement to put him up against Dolliver in the Tenth district congressional race. Dolliver can beat the best democrat in the district (and that's Hinchon) by a majority that will be numbered by the thousand." We think the report that Bro. Hinchon has promised the Lu Verne postofflce to Bro. Platt is hurting his chances, and that he should either deny it or write another letter declining a nomination, or his chances are gone. But the star of our candidate for secretary of state is in the ascendant, and the Emmetsburg Democrat the past week says: "Quite a number of Mr. Taylor's friends, recognizing his popularity and efficiency as a member of the state committee, have asked him to become a candidate for secretary of state, but 'it is not understood that he is a candidate.' Mr. Taylor's business at Algona is almost too profitable for him to accept, and unless matters change it is not likely that he will be a candidate. However, should he consent to make the race and be honored with the nomination, republicans as well as democrats feel that he would make matters decidedly interesting for THE EDITOKS AT SPENCER, The Semi-annual Meeting of the Upper Des Moines Association Passes Off Pleasantly.

Mr. McFarland. ly realizes that The latter thorough- a nomination is no The Upper DesMolnes Editorial association held another successful meeting last week at Spencer, and the members were handsomely received and entertained by 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 Pocahontos 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 superiors in 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 solp by 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 Goo. E. Roberts, president; Senator Funk, vice-president; Miss Edith Train, secretary. The winter meeting will be held at Eagle Grove. 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.

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 Flannagan, Hugh Ross all labor leaders in the recent Homestead troubles. They are specifically charged with the murder of T. J, Connors and Silar Myers, Pinkortons, killed in the fight. All the accused will probably be arrested this afternoon except O'Donnell, who is out of town, The informations were made by Secretary Lovejoy of the Carnegie company. Constables left at once for Homestead and are now looking for the men. The news created much excitement among the strikers as the action was not yet expected, Gossip about this late move on the part of the company was very free this evening. Many sympathisers with the men think it a shrewd move to get the loaders of the strike out of the way at a time when a company ex« pects to begin operations. COUNTER PROSECUTIONS. Informations will be filed against Messrs. Frick and Lovejoy and Manager Potter. The general impression » this is the beginning of the great leg» l struggle here. The attorneys for 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.
