LOUAN TOWNSHIP, Clay County, Iowa, June H, 1801.—To tho Editor: 1'luiiso announce that at the request of many friends In tho For- ty-Bevonth district 1 am a candidate for tho ofllce of state senator, subject to the decision of tho republican primaries. FUANK w. CAI.KINS. SOCKI.KSS .MJHUY WII,!, COME. Iowa's redoubtable Gen, Weaver and Bookless Simpnon of Kansas have been '.having an ovation in Georgia, and .liavo been arousing tho boys in wonderful fashion if tho Chicago Tribune reporter is correct. What they do in Georgia, however, is not of so much interest as what they propose to do in Iowa. In an interview there Simpson «akl: " Tho alliance will take political action in all states where legislators are to bo chosen, whoso purpose it will bo to elect United States senators. Particular attention will tie paid to Ohio, Iowa, Mississippi, and Maryland." This seems to tally with a programme that has boon generally predicted, Ignatius Donnelly is already advertised to bo at the Creston hay palace, and to speak elsewhere, while Simpson, JPfeffer, Weaver, and other leaders will .make an active campaign. Simpson was asked whether tho free silver plank of tho democracy in Iowa and tho income tax in Ohio would not secure the alliance vote, and replied in true Simpsoniun phrase: "They can't outuh any alliance votes by that dodgo. Froo coinage and graduated income taxi Pshaw! They are only lloa wltos in comparison with our principles." All the alliance loaders declare that ftho scheme to have tho government atoro grain and loan money on it is tho chief end and aim of their organization. If a campaign is made on that issue in Jowa the alliance vote ought not to cut nough figure to bo of importance in ahiing results. But with the cons between tho old parties tho alliance movement is un- certain, and it ia entirely possible tha the new party will secure a balance o power in the legislature. In any even Simpson's statement indicates a ho campaign, and its opening will be awaited with curiosity. A cAimoki. cnmc. Carroll's enterprising democratic paper, The Sentinel, says in its last issue: " Tho Algonn Urrfin DES MOIXES tries hard to commend tho position of tho rcpub llcans on the tariff question. The U. D. M, has again and again shown itself to be in sympathy with just what the democratic platform says on this subject, but the exigencies of the g. o. p. at this time call for unwavering support, and the U. D. M. swallows its opinion and whoops it u(> for the party." If tho Sentinel is correct in saying that THE UPPEK DES MOINES has repeatedly endorsed what the presenl democratic platform stands for, then the Sentinel itself in endorsing the platform has changed radically, for less than a year ago the Sentinel was still riticislng THE UPPER DES MOINES at the very time THE UPPEK DES MOINES was criticising McKinleyism. Tho Sentinel then said that all protection was for special rather than public interests and wrong. If the democratic platform means this then wo have never endorsed it. If it meana tariff reform under protection then the Sentinel has come over to our position, and .oftits own. » But in any event wo plead not guilty to tho charge of having swallowed any opinion or of whooping it up for any policy on purely party grounds. Tho The Sentinel is not so blind to recent political history as not to know that if .hero has been a change which has removed the chief ground of criticism on .ho part of low tariff papers, the change las not boon in the attitude of the papers. . Tho low tariff press undoubtedly criticised special schedules, and will continue to do so till they are ad- usted, but it never gave as its chief jriovance against McKinley's proposed )ill the high per centages he thought necessary for protection. The general jurposo of the measure was tho ground of complaint, and that was openly ivowed to bo tho gradual restriction of ill commercial relations with foreign countries, and especially tho discouragement of tho export of agricultural n-oducts. Mr. Carnegie referred to our farm exports as "the paltry four per cent, "of our production, and the alk was common that the farmer should ivoid the pauper markets of tho old world, and content himself with supply- lomo demands. When Elaine's first otter to Senator Prye fell like a bomb hell into this programme, among ithor heretical things ho said: "In the Held of agriculture, with the immense propulsion given in it by agricultur- 1 implements, wo can do far rnoro than iroduce breadstuffs and provisions for our jwn people; nor would it be an ambitious estiny for so groat a country as ours to manufacture only want wo can consume, r to produce only what wo can eat." This and his statement that the bill .id not open a market for a single bar- el of Hour, brought on a short, sharp, and decisive conllict, the result of vhich was not uncertain. Today the /ory papers which endorsed tho original McKinley policy are editorially •oasting of our increased shipments of arm products in 1891 over 1890; roaties have already been made vhich especially affect our agri- ;ultural interests; President Harrison MB made a tour of tho south in many pooches enlarging upon the wisdom of 'annexing markets" and extending .ommorco; the whole energy of the administration has been bent to securing reodom to the American hog abroad; England hu.s been excited over a real nd serious prospect of losing her South American trade; and lastly Maj. Me- iinloy, than whom a more earnest or lonost statesman has never been in jongress, has himself accepted the ver- lict, and, in accepting the nomination or governor in Ohio, acknowledged .he wisdom and need of extending .raclo. Now it is entirely possible and cer- ,ain that many schedules of tho present ariff need overhauling. But BO long is tho tariff policy of the party is in .ho direction of freer trade, so long as .ho emphasis is put upon securing the vidost possible exchange consistent vitb tho maintenance of homo indus- rios, why should tariff reform republi- :ans fail to fall into line? The Iowa democratic platform means one of two .hings. It is either for free trade, or t IB for adjustment under protection. !f it is for free trade it does not at all •opresont liberal republican sentiment, f it is for adjustment under protection, n what respect does it compare favor- bly with reciprocity as proposed by Blaino? Simply reducing our tariff juts no obligation on our neighbors to •educe theirs, and this country has al- •eady suffered the grossest imposition under free trade in coffee. We could vipe out all tariffs and yet gain abso- utoly no advantage for our products ibroad. .The market of tho United States is tho most desirable in the vorld. Reciprocity demands for open- ng it freely some return. It has al- •eady secured big returns for slight oncessions, and if carried out will nako us tho center of a vast commer- ial system, and secure to tho farmer vs well as tho manufacturer a constant ind profitable market for all ho pro- luces. It will admit f re'ely those things vhich do not compote injuriously with iur own production; it will protect Senator Allison in his New York Tribune interview was asked if the McKinley bill would be an issue in Iowa, and answered : "Yes, but as to what extent I do not know. Tho republicans of Iowa arc protectionists, but there are somo things ibout the bill they do not like. There is not much fault found about it, and I don't think we shall lose many votes on account of it." fully those interests which for any son cannot combat successfully Jh the open market. It is th6 free trade policy of a shrewd people, and until there is some sign that it is not being honestly carried out, THE UPPER DES MOINES will " whoop it up" for the reciprocity party, and not thereby swallow any opinion nor yield any convictions to the exigencies of party success. The Chicago Herald, the leading democratic organ of the west, says of the Iowa democratic platform: "The Iowa democrats seem to have thought it ' good 1 politics to join the senseless clamor for free coinage of silver dollars, and the worse than senseless jargon of ' one standard for the rich man and another for the poor man.' They also seem to have thought it necessary to talk nonsense about foreign syndicate ownership of American industries. The platform would have been better with these things omitted. It is not' good polities' for a great party to play with dangerous popular delusions." _ Nina Van Zandt, who married the anarchist Spies while he was in prison, has now made a bona fide marrriage with an Italian named Malato. The Lu Verne News has the following complimentary mention of John G. Smith in its last issue: "Now that Mr. Sapp of Hancock is practically out of the fight, owing to factional dissension in his own county, it is our honest opinion that the republicans of Kossuth, if they were to search from now until November, would not be able to find a more available candidate for representative than John G. Smith of Al- gouu. Mr. Smith is a republican whose record is stainless, and who would bo an honor to old Kossuth, as well as to the district at largo, should he be sent to Des Moines. We have never had a word with Mr. Smith on tho subject, and therefore do not know whether ho could bo induced to make the race or not, but after carefully looking the field over we cannot but think that ho is pre-eminently the man for the place, this time." The following item from tho Estherville Vindicator has special significance: There seems to be a desire in the district to re-nominate Senator Funk, who has had the office but one term, • and is without a doubt the peer of any man now in the field. By the way, keep your eye peeled for the dark horse." The Dubuque democratic dailies furnish an amusing commentary on the free silver plank in the state platform. Tho Herald says Cleveland is the choice for president. Tho Telegraphh says he is not and that the Herald is not for free coinage. It adds: "If our contemporary really sared for and desired free silver it would not favor Cleveland, for free coinage has nowhere a more determined and outspoken opponent. If Mr. Cleveland had experienced a change of sentiment on this question Iowa democrats could support him, but as ho has not, no Iowa democrat who agrees with tho state platform can do so. The Hawkeye democrats who favor his re- nomination, and who at tho same time profess accord with the demand of the ninth plank of the platform, are guilty of a false pretence." ^ Senator Funk says in the Beacon: " An advance announcement of tho Northern Iowa Normal school at Algona is before . This vigorous young institution is growing in character and in the confidence of the public. Tho coming year promises the best advantages and the largest benefits yet announced. Our young people will do well to consider fully and carefully the character of tho Northern Iowa Normal school."

To the Editor: At the regular mooting of Black Cat alliance tho following resolutions wore adopted, and the secretary was instructed to furnish each of the county papers with a copy for publication: 1. That our assessor be furnished a seal of his ofllce, and bo required to stamp all notes and bonds. 3. That all notes, bonds, mortgages, and papers collectible by law, not bearing the impress of the assessor's seal, shall bo null and void, and uncollectible within 80 days after the assessor makes his final statement for the year, 8. That wo demand a limit by law of tho fees and salaries of our public officials to a reasonable maximum amount, so that tho pay of those officials shall not be out of proportion with tho prices of labor audits products. 4. That wo demand tho free and unlimited coinage of silver, 5. That wo demand tho election of president and United States senator by a direct vote of tho people. (1, That we demand tho repeal of all laws that do not bear equally upon capital and labor, the strict enforcement of tho laws, and tho removal of all unjust technicalities, discriminations, and delays of justice. 7. That we demand tho strict enforcement of laws prohibiting the importation of foreign labor under tho contract system, and that all convicts bo confined within the prison walls. 8. That we demand equal rights to all and special privileges to none. 9. That wo favor tho Australian ballot system. Bolmond Herald: A well that sends forth a stream of milk is the latest Iowa jroduct.

THE LOCAL POLITICAL JOT The Approaching Caucuses Bring Oflt the Candidates—Some of the fos* sibiUties Being: Discussed. The Senatorial and Representative Situa* tions Assuming Definite Form— Best Men Should Win. The early call for the Algona caucuses and for others over the county have brought senatorial and representative matters to a square issue, and from this time on till convention time, the usual mid-summer excitement is upon us. It coines every year, is disagreeable and inevitable, and tbose who cannot get away a-fishing have to have a hand in whether or no. In the senatorial field but two candidates are prominently mentioned, and these are A. D. Clarke and J. B* Jones. Mr. Clarke is well known to county politics, and to the people, and has always hac a warm support. This is Mr. Jones first appearance among the candidates, but tho many elements of strength he combines will give him a leading place in any canvass. Having been conspicuously connected with farming nearly all his time in Kossuth, he naturally views all public questions from a standpoint of sympathy with the farming classes, and this will be an important matter this year. Mr. Jones being also a grand army member, and haying actively supported all the principles upon which the party fights in this campaign, he is specially well fitted to take an active part. His ability as a speaker and his business sagacity are well known, and should he be sent tc the senate no one who knows him will doubt his ability to render conspicuous service to the district. In the representative field the situa 1 tion is more complicated, and the number of men who are candidates or who are named as candidates is legion. Among them the most commonly named are C. B. Hutchins, D. Rice, and Gardner Cowles all of whom will have strength if their friends gain their consent to an active canvass. Senator Chubb's name is a favorite, bul he will undoubtedly not encourage any attempt to secure a delegation. The suggestion of John G. Smith by the Lu Verne News has put him prominently to the front in the race, and his long residence and active interest in public matters will secure him many friendly delegates. Mr. Smith stands squarely on the republican platform and is a man well calculated to give the district an able and influential representation at Des Moines, and as many who have heretofore been compelled to oppose him are now urging^ his nomination, il will not be strange if he should win in the convention. Whatever outcome is reached the candidates should be carefully considered and the ticket should have the men best able to do good service at Des Moines, as well as to harmonize republicans here at home. Probably no one of pronounced views or enough aggressiveness to be valuable, is without enemies. But there is no reason why a ticket of strong men cannot be secured which all elements can consistently support. IN THIS NEIOHBOEHOOD. Hancock Signal: A Mr. Wolf of Al gona preached an interesting sermon at the M. E. church Sunday evenipg. Spencer News: Mrs. J. G. West anc Mrs. C. E. Blondel were down to Al gona Tuesday on a visit to their mutual friend, Mrs. Jas. Taylor. Emmetsburg Reporter: They had burglars in Whitteinore, Monday night They were scared away from the Munch and Parley stores but got some §75 worth of goods at the hardware. Goldfield Chronicle: Fred Water house of Algona was in town yesterday taking orders for his excellent cigars. He reports the trade growing every trip, and is selling lots of them hereabouts. Estheryille Democrat: Attorney E. V. Swotting of Algona made a professional visit last Monday. His friends here will be glad to learn that his health has greatly improved since he moved there last spring. Congressman Dolliver informs the Port Dodge Messenger that owing to the resignation of Mr. Bond of Lehigh. the present Tenth district representative at Annapolis, another examination to fill vacancy will shortly be held. Ruthven Free Press: Miss Annabelle Light, who is to teach in the primary department of the school dui'ing the coining year, is now in Des Moines, where she is taking a special course oJ training to better prepare her for the duties of the position. The Dubuque Telegraph is "off" in the following item: "Senator N. V. Brower, formerly editor of the Dubuque Times, has been renominated by the republicans of Hancock and Kossuth counties." Cerro Gordo and Hancock are Senator Brower's counties. Estherville Republican: Prank Davey, well known by many old residents here, has a column-article in the Portland, Oregon, Telegram, on the "drink habit. )P All will be glad to learn that Bro. Davey is doing good work for the temperance cause. Milford Mail: The odd fellows of this part of the state have under contemplation the purchase of some lake shore property near Arnold's park, for the purpose of holding a reunion or to be used for camping grounds. This is a good idoa and should be endorsed by every member of the order in the state. Sanborn Journal: N. B. Bacon of Wesley, grandfather of Wm. F. Bacon, Mrs. Drake, Mrs. Allen, and Mrs. VanAlstine of our city, is expected here soon on a visit to his grandchildren. Mr. Bacon is 92 years of ago and is still hale and hearty and his eyesight is still good, and ho writes and reads without glasses. Mr. Bacon visited our city about a year ago and many of our citi- '.ons will remember him. Brooklyn Chronicle: Senator Abraham Funk of the Spirit Lake district .s in a box, Ho sometime ago emphatically declined to become a, candidate for re-election to the senate. The Algona UPPER DBS MOINES and a number of other leading papers of the district, which believe that Senator Funk did good work for the district, are Urgfing the Coming convention to ignore Ms declaration and nominate him anyway. A firitt correspondent sends the following to the Marshalltown Times-Republican: The representative conven- ventioh of the Eighty-fourth district is called at Britt, Aug. 4. This district is comprised of Kossuth and Hancock counties. KossUth slopped over two years ago and elected Lund, owing to internal dissensions and the the rapacity of would-be bosses. There is a good healthy republican majority in the two counties, and an effort is being made to conciliate the disaffected and decide on a " winner." So mote it be. A BIG DEAL OOfrSUMMATED. A $10,000 Sale of City Property Yesterday Which MeftnB a Third Bnnk for Algona and a Fine Business Building. The most important trade in city property made this year was completed yesterday. By it the two fronts occupied by Jas. Taylor and W. F. Carter, and A. D. Clarke's land office go to a new combination, the outsiders of which are Capt. Tyrrell of Wright county anc Mr. St. Clair of Marshalltown. The property was owned by A. D. Clarke and was sold at the good figure of $10,' 000. The purpose of the new company which includes local men whose names are not given out, is to build a largei building on the two lots than has ye been erected in town, and to occupy the corner with a third bank. None of the details of the bank organization are made public. Mr. Clarke says, how ever, that the new building will be be gun in September or early in the spring, and that both the present store buildings will bo taken down. Where the merchants now occupying these rooms will go is not decided. This brings two good men to Algona and in sures an added boom to business, ft is the beginning of that growth which is bound to set in, and shows the confi dence of outsiders in our prospects. DIED AT LOS ANGELES. • Mrs. T. C. ±.eggett Passes Away- Other Mortuary Matters. The Los Angeles Times of July 14 contains the following brief note: "Died—In Los Angeles, Cal., July 18 1891, Mrs. T. C. Leggett, aged 29 years anc eight months. Funeral today (Tuesday from the residence of her brother, C G Forbush, 230 North Breed street, at 3:30 p m., to Evergreen cemetery." To the many friends of Mrs. Leggett, who was known in Algona many years ago as Dora For bush, as well as to al the friends of the Forbush and Legget families, this news will be unexpected and cause a feeling of regret. Mrs Leggett had suffered for some time from lung troubles, and the family lef Kansas for California on this account But the change came too late, and death has speedily followed. Mrs Leggett was a young and attractive woman, and her untimely death leaves a husband and two children to mourn her loss. Gene Shadle hands us a clipping from a Pomona paper as follows: Dr. B. G Forbush received the sad news Monday evening of the death of his daughter Mrs. T. C. Leggett of Los Angeles, anc went down on the Tuesday morning train. The deceased was the wife o one of the prominent officials of the Santa Fe railroad, and came to California from Parsons, Kansas, last March on account of her health, Mr. Leggefr following in June. As she spent some time with her parents here a shor time ago, many will remember her, anc all the friends of the family sympathize with them in their bereavement In Memorlam. The grange passed the following resolutions at a recent meeting: Whereas, The great reaper, Death, has again entered our grange and garnered to his fold our esteemed and worthy sister Mrs. Isabelle McArthur, who has been for many years a member of our grange ant who was at all times ready and willing to perform any duty to further our objects and one who made the precepts of the grange tho guide and rule of her life Resolved, That we tender to the afflicted husband, sons, and daughters our fraterna" sympathy. That as a testimonial of our re spect for the memory of our deceased sister, our charter be draped in mourning foi sixty days. ° That these resolutions be spread upon our minutes, a copy furnished the family ol deceased, and a copy sent to the Grange .News and furnished to our city papers for publication.

A western cattle rancher, who is in Chicago, has been interviewed by a Tribune reporter on the subject of cattle queens. He says: " It is becoming an evei-yday occurrence to see women out west dealing in cattle and horses. The loneliness and hardships of the great prairie do not seem to deter energetic women from the purpose of conducting a profitable business. A few days ago a. cattle queen from Idaho sold two car- lands of fine horses at Omaha at a much better figure than any man could have obtained. You see, women have an intuitive talent for bargains, and can get all there is out of a sale. Several years ago we had not a cattle queen in the west, but now the plains and cattle tracts are noted for the number of queens." Are You AJlvo To the importance of keeping up with tho times?

UKBEK TENTS MA WEEK The Soldier Boys Off for "Webster City, Monday, whete the Regular Encampment Takes Place. The Target Shooting Squad Went a Little Earlier—A New Feature of Encampment Days. Monday morning there was a stir about the headquarters of Company F, and the noon train took them south to Webster City, where they remain in camp till Friday. They went undercharge of Lieutenant Edens, as Captain Cooke had already gone with the shocking squad last Friday. When they, arrived they were marched at once' to Bosencranz park, where with three companies of regulars and all the companies of the Sixth regiment, they spend the time in vigorous military drill. Owing to the absence of Lieutenant Creed, Collie Chubb acts as first Sergeant and Hurt Barr as quartermaster sergeant. Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Tellier went with the boys to cook for them, and a son of E.'C. Tuttle went to do errands and attend the captain. The earlier gathering of the shooters is a new feature this year, and was the result of Sioux City offering a $100 silver- trophy to the company which three' times wins the highest marks. Each company sent its seven best men to shoot Saturday and Monday. Out of this contest also men are selected to make up the state team which goes to Springfield, 111., in September to compete in the inter-state contest. As the state team is made up of the best men it is possible for the Sixth regiment to get all or none of the places. Last year Capt. Cooke was on the team, and if Company F's men hold up at Webster City it is likely that we will have a place this year again. The team which went last week from Algona were: Cooke, wth a total average score of 19 out of a possible 25; Ward, average 15; Barr, average 15 6-11; Nolte, average 15 1-6; Minkler, average 15; Harvey, average 14 11-12; and Walsh, average 14 1-2. A total average of 15 entitles a shooter to become enrolled as a marksman under state rules, and Ward, Edens, and Minkler have qualified and have their papers. Capt. Cooke will soon try to become a sharp-shooter under Blunt's United States rules. This requires an average of 20 at all ranges up to 800 yards, and a trial after that at skirmish firing. His trial record last week at 200 yards was 17-19-19-20; at 300 yards, 19-20-22-20; and at 500 yards, 20-20-2418. Company F has ranked second both years in inspection, Sioux City's company alone beating it. This year the inspection for rank will be held at home, the officer visiting each company, and there is no reason why our boys will not come out ahead again. They are well supplied now with everything, and their showing is a credit to Algona. A Most Plcnsuiit Occasion. To the Editor: The lawn party given on Friday afternoon last by Mrs. Milton Stan- and Mrs. A. M. Horton, at the home of Mrs. Starr, was a very delightful event for the large number of guests (numbering eighty, we believe) who were present. A large canopy had been provided upon the lawn, which was gaily decorated with the national colors, and beneath this seats were provided for the guests. Several fine songs were rendered by Mrs. Eugene Langdon of Oregon. The younger ladies found the tennis, croquet, and other games ver-y attractive and both old and young entered with zest into the joy of the occasion. Throughout the house flowers and pictures were abundant, and at 6.o'clock choice refreshments were served in the dining room, where a number of young ladies gave the guests most graceful attention. We feel sure that everyone must have carried away the feeling from this pleasant entertainment, that home joys are doubly blessed when so happily blended, as on this occasion, with natures charms.
