Rate* of advertising sent on application. the democrats first showed that the last republican congress had spent over a billion dollars in two years it created a genuine sensation, and undoubtedly helped to secure the sweeping victory they ettjoyed. The first session of their congress has adjourned. They have had a clear majority of 140 votes. They have had "Watchdog" Holman at the helm. What is the result? They have spent an even fifty million dollars more than the first session of the republican congress did. The republicans spent $462,000,000; the democrats in the same time have spent over $510,000,000. These figures speak for themselves. "CzAKREED" of Maine has written some reviews of the work of the congress that has just adjourned which are worthy of a. place with the letters of Junius. For scathing, merciless, vitriolic hair raising nothing like them has appeared in late years, and if Hoi- man and Springer don't squirm as Grafton and the Duke of Bedford did, it is only because they are better hardened. Reed is the brainiest man in public life, if the most unpopular, and if he continues to review congressional proceedings he is likely to add, a new terror to the office of representative. Those who enjoy clear English and political discussion with an edge to it should get the last North American Review and last Saturday's Chicago Tribune. THE regents of the state university have done right in retiring Prof. Stevenson. Last June an oration written for commencement by a young man named Lyons came to him for correction. It contained the usual amount of high-flown eloquence, and some sentiments which the professor did not approve of. Instead of commenting on the literary merits of the production the professor spent his energy on the sentiment, which he characterized as " abominable rant." Lyons sent a letter to him expressing " deepest contempt," at which the faculty disciplined him and did not allow him to appear on the commencement pro- gramme. The faculty was right in sitting down on Lyons. It will do him good. But that does not change the fact that Prof. Stevenson showed-his unfitness for an instructor in English by his impertinent and silly criticisms. He evidently belongs to that class of eastern college men who feel that it is a condescension for them to associate with the wild west, and that no dog should bark when their mouths are open. The prompt action of the board in disposing of the professor speaks well for the management of the school. portion of tax various kinds of property should bear. Shall it all be borne by corporations, or all by land, or shall the liquor traffc pay for it? Shall all property be assessed at its full value? Shall incomes be taxed? These are few of the questions that beset the rect tax advocate. Then in administering the law who will pretend that all men pay alike on what they own, or that any way has yet been devised to make them? Such men as Gov. St. John simply darken counsel with words, and retard instead of hastening a fair settlement of the questions they discuss. To create dissatisfaction with what is, without suggesting any available remedy, is the trick of a demagogue? and until the prohibition party people who denounce all tariff taxes can suggest some method by which the public burdens can be more fairly adjusted to the shoulders of our 60,000,000 of people, they are not entitled to respectful consideration. PROPOSE SOMETHING B1STTEU. The Courier publishes with evident approval a long report of Gov. St, John's speech at Madison, Wis., in which he denounces all tariff taxes. With much plausibility the third party advocate shows the inequalities and unfairness of taxes on what we consume instedfi of what we possess. But like all such leaders he fails to announce specifically what tax he proposes to substitute for these indirect taxes. And he fails to point out how he would tax what" we possess," and wherein in the end his plan would be more satisfactory. It is easy to indicate the defects of any law. Human legislation will never be so equitable that a man of St. John's ability cannot create discontent among those who listen only to his story. But those who ask that he criticize by creating will not long be influenced by mere denunciation of what is. This question of direct and indirect taxation is, as a matter of equity, a grave one and while St. John is prating about taxing what we possess, Mr, Whiting of the Iowa commission is proposing a tax on professional men, because in paying on their property, he says they are not meeting their share of the public burden. Even two of our existing direct taxes are not on what we possess but on our heads, our road and poll taxes. An indirect tax on what we consume is all that makes certain classes pay any tax at all, just as our poll taxes do. It is a question how much they should pay, but it is not a question to be settled slap dash in a political speech. But admitting St, John's contention against indirect taxation, how far does that go towards solving the question? How much more satisfactory is our system of direct taxation? And what can be said against the tariff as a mode of raising revenue that cannot be said against our present methods of assessment in this state? What has Iowa appointed a tax commission for if direct taxes are so easily adjusted and so fairly levied? Gov. St. John talks about taxing what wo possess as though it was done as glibly as his tongue runs. But the fact is that the levying- of direct taxes on property in Iowa today is &s unfair, inequitable, and unjust as any system could be. In the first place there is no agreement as to what pro- lOWA'S KEVEXUE COMMISSION. Unless the commissioners appointed to revise the revenue laws of the state do more than the legislature expressly provided for, it seems unlikely that much will come of their work. They are only allowed thirty days at five dollars a day in which to do what might profitably occupy their time until the next session of the legislature begins. The questions before them and before the state are of vital importance, and they should have been given all the time they need in which to perfect some scheme of taxation which will be satisfactory in its workings. The commission is in the main a good one. Col. Clarke is not only an able lawyer,' but a student of social and economic questions, and will probably bring the widest research and broadest views of any man on the board. The other three are farmers and business men. It is unfortunate that at least one was not chosen from the ranks of those of larger business experience. One of the pressing questions will be whether to have property assessed at its full value. At present different counties are paying on assessments ranging anywhere from 10 to 50 per cent., and tho unfairness of it has been felt everywhere. But if assessments are raised then all the laws providing for bonded indebtedness of towns, etc., must be changed, or the debt limit will be doubled or trebled. This is only one of the embarrassing matters to be settled. The questions of taxing corporations more heavily, of income taxes, of taxing professional men as Mr. Whiting urges, of putting all taxes on land as Henry George advocates, these and hundreds of other questions all come up for discussion before any final or satisfactory settlement can be reached. It is unfortunate that the commission cannot be in session a year. The work being undertaken Iowa should go to the bottom of this taxation matter, and when a new system is adopted it should represent the best thought of the best students of the world. veniently left town, which is the Gamer on- ian Way of surrender. There is a great power in public opinion even tat such bosses as Cameron and Quay." ^ Rutherford B. Hayes says: "it should be regarded as a stain upon the character of any man who does not do all he can for the Welfare of those Whose labor has made his wealth." There was talk of Gov. Boies contesting Dave Henderson's seat in congress, but he put a stop to it in short order. America's delegates to the international monetary conference, to be held in October, either at Brussels or Berlin, are Senator Allison, Senator Jones of Nevada, Congressman McCreary of Kentucky, Henry W. Cannon of New York, and Francis A. Walker. Cannon was at one time controller of currency, and Walker was in charge of the tenth census, and is a standard writer on financial questions. All the delegates are friends to silver, although Jones and McCreary are the only ones who have voted for free coinage under existing conditions. It is a delegation that will 'fight to have silver recognized, ON THE WAY TO DENVER. C. M. Doxsee Tells of Things Seen and Heatd by the Wayside—tie Always WHtes Good Letters.

L. Kinney to the good roads convention at Des Moines next week. Minnesota has a great contest begun. The republicans have nominated Knute Nelson for governor, the democrats Mr. Lawlor, and tho people Ignatius Donnelly. All of them are strong with their followers. Lawlor is a young son of the Milwaukee railroad man, but is very popular, while Nelson is one of the ablest as well as most influential republicans in the state, und everybody knows Donnelly. Nelson is almost a sure winner. The committee to investigate congressman Watson's charges of drunkenness among members found that while three or four have appeared .on the floor under the influence of liquor, they were not drunk, and that Watson's charges are untrue. Jerro Simpson filed a dissenting report sustaining Watson. Depew tells them in Harrison will be elected. England that The papers are having fun with Mr. Lease, husband of the Kansas female agitator. The Leavenworth Times learns that "Mr. Lease is confined to the house, probably from doing too much housework this warm weather. Mrs. Mary went off to the Omaha convention and has notyet returned, leaving the old man too much to attend to and no hired girl. Going about the house with dark thoughts about the country being ' on tho verge of ruin,' is it any wonder that he should have the blues, especially as there is no girl in the house?" A special train went through Iowa Saturday carrying $60,000,000 of gold from San Francisco to Washington. Forty United States infantrymen with two Catling guns had charge of the train, and its movements were kept as secret as possible. The gold reserve is being transferred to Washington. C. W. Williams says: "I never expect to see a horse trot a mile in two minutes, for he or she would have to go quarters below 30, and no trotter can ever carry the clip. I never saw a horse go a quarter in 80. Allerton can go any quarter in 80 and a fraction, but an even 80 is too much for any trotter." Lafe Young says Carnegie could have saved himself lots of trouble by making a failure in life. A sulky with pneumatic tires and ball bearings is the latest in the racing line. W. O. Payne, who has spent much time in Washington, says in the Nevada Representative: "The fact is that very few members of congress get drunk, and the appearance of one of them upon the floor in a state of intoxication is the rarest sort of an occurrence. Doubtless a large proportion of them are what might be termed light drinkers; but the man who has not the faculty of quitting before he is boozy or of carrying steadily all that he drinks is seldom able to get to congress, or to stay there if fortune has favored him with an accidental election. The American congress—particularly the present one—has many things to apologize for, but as a rule it is composed of men who recognize that they have more important business on hand than getting drunk." Frick and both the Pinkertons are now said to be democrats. Over 100,000 visitors are reported at Denver ou the excursions. Senators Cameron and Quay both opposed confirming Judge Shiras' appointment to the supreme bench because President Harrison took a Pennsylvania man without asking them about it. In discussing the matter Sam Clark says: " President Harrison has so great an estimate of the supreme bench and is so resolute that its appointments should be worthy of it and in 110 way political that he has not deferred to senators in making any of his judicial appointments. And he is right in this. Mr. Cameron and Mr. Quay resented it when an appointment was made from their state. But their opposition raised such a storm among Pennsylvania republicans that Mr. Quay found he would be beaten for the senate if he did not change front, so went to the judiciary committee and withdrew his opposition.

The Bancroft Register notes .the failing health of Mrs. E. S. Streater: Her brothers and sisters are here and she is receiving the best of care, but hopes of Ijer recovery are not entertained. The other day a young Charles City fellow was arrested and sent to jail for 20 days for misusing a livery team. He had driven the team 40 miles in three hours, during which time the thermometer was 97 in the shade. Livermore Independent: Mr. and Mrs. Scott of Algona visited P. Tuttle and family last week Mrs. G, M. Howard of Algona, after spending two weeks visiting relatives and friends hereabouts, returned home last Monday, Harry Webster of Elmore in attempting to take a revolver out of his pocket muzzel foremost, discharged it. The ball passed through his hand, leaving a painful wound. Another of the narrow escapes from perhaps a dangerous wound from a boy's carrying fire-arms. The other day a Humboldt fellow entered a horse in a race and lost his money. After putting his horse into the barn he kicked and hammered it shamefully for not winning. When he was about to leave the barn the racer kicked him in the side, almost killing him. He ought not complain. Eagle Grove Gazette: The Algona UPPER DBS MOINES says the Dunlap Bros, have over 1,100 acres of flax this year near Ledyard, and the present prospect is that the yield will be the best they have ever had. Flax is looking very fine everywhere. These boys are experienced grain and hay growers and whatever they attempt will be likely to succeed. Flax bids fair to be a paying crop in northern Iowa and Minnesota if the linen industry is encouraged. THROUGH NEBRASKA, Aug. 5.—Traveling through the state of Iowa at this season of the year one is struck with the thought that it does not need a mind possessing immense powers of receptivity to see that our own state is beautifully productive, and that she possesses beautiful sights scarcely excelled by the mountains of the west. With her green fields of corn with its silver tassels, contrasting with the golden fields of grain, one is led to exclaim to himself, truly Iowa has rich mines of gold and silver, worked and developed by a happy, prosperous people. No citizen of Iowa need feel ashamed to have his friends from the east or west visit him, and he need feel no remorse in singing her praises, for the more one travels through other states, the more he is convinced of the superiority of his own state. <• A half day's visit in Omaha yesterday showed that the city was suffering from paralysis of business, notwithstanding there are saloons enough to accommodate the thirsty. Her business men admit that it is unusually dull this summer, more especially the real estate market, which is the case with all cities that have endured the real estate craze that Omaha passed through a few years ago. The center of attraction yesterday was at Council Bluffs, where Gov. McKinley of Ohio delivered an address before the Chautauqua assembly. He spoke on the grounds of the driving park association, and although the inadequate accommodations made it uncomfortably warm for him, yet for two hours he stood before the crowded amphitheatre and discussed the silver and tariff questions with such convincing argument and fine oratory that even democrats must have been charmed by it. He first took up the silver question. He said it would be no more right for congress to pass a free silver bill giving the silver men $1 for 80 cents worth of silver than it would to make three pecks a bushel and let the farmer get pay for a full bushel of grain. What we want is a dollar that is worth a dollar wherever it is, and worth just as much as any other dollar. History has shown that a good dollar will not associate with a poor dollar. If there is any difference in their value it is the poor dollar that passes in circulation, and that we get for our products. When he said I will now take up the subject of taxation or the tariff question, the audience recognized him as the tariff leader by a hearty applause. He said in 1890, when the democrats were successful in securing such an overwhelming majority in the house the tariff was but a few weeks old, and unable to say anything, but now it is nearly 19 months old today and is able to speak for itself. The difference between the republican and democratic system of taxation is that the republicans believe in raising their revenue by taxing someone else, while the democrats would raise their revenue by taxing themselves. The republicans tax those things that we can produce and thus stimulate their production in our own country. The democrats would tax those things we cannot produce but must buy abroad, and admit free ford, 111., a few years ago. They had one child, a girl about four year's old, and lost a child ten months before the birth of the triplets, all four of these children being born in 1891. The poor mother lived only a week after the birth of the triplets. She was a lady highly educated at Rockford seminary, and highly esteemed by all for her social virtues.

The following paragraphs from the funeral discourse at the burial of Mrs. Coughlan will interest all who knew her in 1860, when she taught the town school in Algona: Helen N. Coughlan was born in Fairfield, N. Y., Dec. 25,1841. She was one of a family of eight children born to Thos. and Vienna Rice. The father and mother were of the sturdy New England stock whose parents came to the then new country in central New York early in the present century. Helen Rice passed the early years of her girlhood in the family home among the hills of Herkimer. From a child she was studious and showed remarkable interest in the attainment of knowledge. Knowledge came easy and naturally to her. She was the born student, and she did it all so easily. Such progress did she attain in her studies that when a mere girl only 15 years of age she was adjudged worthy of presiding over a country school, which she did with marked success. Her career seemed at once to be settled; she was to be a teacher of youth. She showed remarkable adaptation in the great profession that was to be the pursuit and enthusiasm of her life. But two years latter, at 17, she made another venture that must surely have faile_d with one less resolute and self conscious of strength. She undertook the teaching of a private school— a " select school," so-called in the village of Poland, N. Y. Her 19th year was spent in the state of Iowa most of the time devoted to the pursuit which had the passionate love of her soul. Returning to her native state we next find her in the academy in Pulaski, N. Y., in the position of preceptress, which place she held for about three years. Two very important events transpired during these years in Pulaski. The first was her marriage to Rev.. H. H. Butterworth, her associate teacher— the principal of thejinstitution—and the second was his sad and untimely death only a few weeks after the happy marriage. This was a severe blow to the WHAT Bffl BAUR Oni- Tenth District Cadet at Point Gets a Hazing and is Badly Used Up, The Details of an Affair that Should the Last &i the Great National Military Academy.

WANTED—A few men to hay. Month men preferred. S. H. MoNutt.-13tf — the competing products. He said the democrats talk about a foreign market as though there was some sanctity connected with it. What we want is a home market, for the nearer home our products can be sold the greater the price will be. We cannot have a ' home market for our food products unless we have non- food producing employments. Drive out our factories and the consumers become producers. He said: "Let me ask any farmer here today which he would rather have for a neighbor another farmer or a factory?" "Give us the factory every time," someone called out. The English laborer spends $4 a year for American farm products, while the American laborer spends $97. There was great cheering when he said: "Benjamin Harrison will be elected president this fall." They tell us he said that Iowa is a doubtful state, "Don't you believe it," called out someone from the audience. I don't believe it he continued, I never did believe it. I don't believe it is any more doubtful than Ohio, and Ohio is never a doubtful store in a presidential year, McKinley merits all the praise he receives as an orator, he indulges in no abuse, his speech is full of argument and food for thought. After he had spoken for nearly two hours, the audience with almost a single voice called for him to go on. It seems as if everybody is going to Denver. The fast mail from Council Bluffs to Denver, which is called the fastest train in the world for so great a distance, is running in three sections, and the only sleeping accommodations that could be secured last night was a berth in a tourist's car. The cinders were so thick that they got in bed before I could, ana persisted in occupying the berth all night. We took it good naturedly for we considered ourselves young heart and life of our sister, but brave then as she always was she took up her burden and carried it on. In 1866 Mrs. Butterworth was called to the position of preceptress in Hungerford Collegiate institute in Adams, N. Y. On Thanksgiving day, 1875, she was united in marriage to Mr. A. H. Coughlan, a respected citizen of this town, by Rev. C. W. Parsons, in the old home in Fairfield. Since then 17 years ot beautiful and happy wedded life have passed away and it is only simple truth to say no home has been brighter than theirs, no hearts have been happier. For seven years our sister was the queen of her home simp- lyj and the center of her social circle, but the providence that ruled her life had yet another call for public service and when in 1882 this institution became the Adams Collegiate institute, the earnest invitation and almost imperative call of the authorities brought her back again to her old position as preceptress. And here for these ten years she has lived and labored, withholding nothing from her sacred trust, with all her powers consecrated, of sympathy of heart and intelligence of head and readiness of hand to make this institution what it is, one of the best of its kind in the state. Speaking of this tribute to her worth the Jefferson County Journal says: The associated press dispatches p r i. day contained the following: "HazhJ at West Point has not, as is generally supposed, become a lost art. An low cadet by the name of Canfield is the latest victim, and two New York cadets have been disciplined. One of these IB Leroy Elting of Kingston, and the other is Corporal Langdon of New York City Elting Is suspended for six months, and Langdon loses his chevrons, is kept in camp, and has his furlough shortened by two weeks. Canfield reported at the hospital badly broken up and too seriously ill to do duty. He told tho hospital officers that he had been 'double stepped' and that he was a subject for their treatment. Being afraid of still further hazing from the older cadets he hesitated about giving the names of the hazers, but was told he must do so and revealed the names of Elting and Langdon, who are both members of the third class. They were reported to Secretary of War Elkins, with the result above stated. One of the straneo features of this particular case is that both of the condemned cadets have themselves only recently been free from insult, if not hazing. They are only in the third class and have been at the Point but one year and it would seem that they were bent on having sweet revenge on the plebe of the year." The Fort Dodge Messenger interviewed Canfield's father, who said: The dispatch is substantially correct. My son wrote mo an account of the trouble when it occurred . a week ago. Mr. Canfield added some particulars not mentioned in the dispatch. It appears that the trouble originated some time before in an attempt on tho part of the same men to haze Cadet Canfield. At that time the hazers got decidedly the worst of it. One of them was an officer and the second and successful attemptat hazing was made under the pretext that Cadet Canfield had not been drilling in satisfactory shape. The officer and his friend took their victim aside and put him through a series of bone racking and muscle wrenching exercises calcula-. ted to make a man sore all over for a week. That was the result in this case, for the hazed cadet was so lame at drill next morning that he could hardly move. The surgeon noticed this and, smelling a rat, sent Canfleld to the hospital and informed the commanding officer. That official gave the young man his choice of telling the names of, .the hazers or being dismissed and he jwise- ly chose the former. While he is still in the hospital he received a challenge to fight one of the boys which he ignored and was requested to resign by some under penalty of having the place made too hot to hold him. Canfield sent word to his persecutors that if attacked he would defend himself with gun or bayonet. He then painted a skull and cross bones on his tent and is still holding the fort. . . __ — — —-- "J U WML 1AUJ. ai\l V O, Emerson asserts that every man has a right to be judged by his best moments.

An Abducted Boy Found on n Farm In Cerro Gordo County—An Affect- Ins Scene. A dramatic scene occured at Osmund about 12 miles northeast of Clear Lake when little Arne Smeeland, who was abducted from his mother more then a month ago in Chicago, was restored to Mrs. Smeeland's arms by Attorney J. F. Geeting. This was not done without an active protest from Martin Smee- land, who attempted to tear tho little boy from his mother but was prevented by the attorney, who kept the furious father at bay long enough to allow Mrs, Smeeland to climb into tho buggy with her boy, then jumping in himself drove off, leaving Smeeland fairly besidehim- self with ragn. The attorney and Mrs. Smeeland have been tracking the child, who is four years old, and his father from place to place for some days. They found the boy at the farm of a man named Tweed. Iwo deputies who talked cattle to Tweed saw the boy but could not identify him and so went back and brought the mother. At a few minutes past noon they drove into the yard where one of the men was talking cattle iff 1 weed and the boy was playing about the doorsteps. He was just asking Mrs. I wood when he would see his mother again when the buggy stopped. The little fellow looked up and with a joyful cry of " Mamma, mamma," rushed to the vehicle, in another second the attorney had sprung out and placed the long-lost child in the weeping mother's arms, I' 1 may as well tell you who I am," saia Geeting to Tweed, who was appar- antiy struck dumb with amazement. I am attorney for this child's mother," and he handed the farmer a card. By this time Mrs. Smeeland had alighted , from the buggy and was crying as she lonaled the boy whose loss had cost her so many hours of anguish. A man's face as pale as death waff seen for a moment at a window and the next moment Smeeland rushed from the house and dashed at his wife wickedly.
