THE UPPER DES MOJNES, ALGONA, IOWA* . SEPTEMBER Oiltcs CONDENSED NEWS. Vt/JONA, IOWA. Italn has fnllon only twice in twenty-1 nine years in Aden, Arabia. Pravlous to the last rnin, which occurred in 1888, • none hnd fallen in twenty-six years. The now khedlvc of Egypt is one of those young fellows with old heads' on i llicir shoulders. He has decorated with | the moat, potential grand high Order : of the Chofakat the wife of the man i who holds down Egypt's chief editorial | job, and now there isn't any sort of a puff the klicdive can't have. To sonic men diplomacy comes natural. It is announced that the Russian nihilists have at last: succeeded in the Invention of a dynamite machine which can be operated without danger to the operator. He lays it down and walks off and is out of danger before the explosion occurs. The device looks like a small book. It is considered a very Important Invention by nihilists, bat the czar of .liussla will doubtless fail to appreciate its scientific value. Sixty-eight years ago Gen. Lafayette visited Boston, and 70,000 people assembled to do him honor. He, with Gov. Eustis of lioxbury, marched Into the city escorted by a great military nud civil parade, and crossed the Common between two Ions? lines of 'school children. While in Boston Gen. Lafayette visited the camp of the New Eug- Innd guards at Savin hill, and gave an exhibition of skill in aiming' the big Held pieces that delighted the soldiers. The decision of United States Judge MeCoruiick in the Texas railway case is to the effect that a state legislature . has no power to fix rates without giving the company an opportunity to show whether they are unreasonably low or not, says the New York Herald. The power is conceded to prescribe reasonable charges, but not charges 'which would prove ruinous to the roads. The latter are entitled to show that any prescribed schedule would mean loss 'to the stockholders, and it is for a court to determine whether or not the contention, is just. The fatal objection to the Texas law whs that it did not give tills right to railway corporations. 1 TJds couutlry should • have foreign coaling stations, not so much for supplying pur own-war steamers as for supplying foreign merchant, steamers. 'The most' profitable coal yard In the world is the bay of Gibraltar, which is .monopolized by the British, and at which every steamer passing in and out of the Mediterranean is obliged to obtain its supply of coal for generating steam and for other purposes. The commerce of the ocean will soon be nearly all carried in steamers, and the amount of coal they will require will be enormous. The United States has more coal than all otner countries combined, but. no effort has been made to dispose of it to steamers which do not enter our ports, for the reason that wo have no, foreign coaling stations. The cunmg down of the consular appropriation by congress at: its last sos- siou will have the effect of crippling this important branch of public service. Considering the size and wealth jf the country, our consular service- is not. what it should IK>. It is not as well supported as that of Kngland, France, or Germany, and is consequently not as ollicionf. It Is reported at .. ..shlngton that the department of state, in consequence of the reduction of tlu.i appropriation, will be obliged to suspend the publication of the. consular reports that have proved to be so valuable to the country. It injures the nation in the eyes of) the world to have- cheap men sent abroad as consuls or to obligo thorn to occupy poor quarters. The announcement is made by an exchange, 'that Airs. John A. Logan will undertake the work of raising a million dollars from the women of America, for the American University at AVash- ington. Mrs. Logan's enterprise and energy are well known, and her success in previous undertakings is almost a guaranty of success in this. Her plan is to raise a fund for the creation of 100 ,1.10,000 fellowships that, will enable at least 100 women, who would otherwise be unable on account of the expense, to take a post-graduate course in this great institution. Tho American University was opened August 31. in all Its departments. Indeed, the only requirements for admission for any one, will be good character and intellectual fitness. Tliis government cannot afford to pass by without notice the seizure of political refugees on the American steamer Caracas in the harbor of Puerto Cabello by order of General Urdaneta, says tile New York Herald. For the seizure there wu.3 not. the shadow of legal warrant. Though har- ttssed by revolution Venezuela Is not at war. The belligerent right of search and seizure dues not exist. Tho six men taken from the steamer were not in the service- of an enemy. They were political refugees seeking to leave their country in time of internal troubles on a foreign passenger steamer. Their seizure under tho circumstances was simply an outrage on tho American flag. Of course, Venezuela will be given to understand that such offences arc not to be committed with impunity. But as the public affairs of that country are in a state of chaos and the offender iu this instance was an irresponsible agitator or revolutionist, the most effective remedy is to bo sought in prevention rather than in reparation. And i'or prevention we need cue or move war vessels in those waters. The earl of Elington died in London Tuesday. A captivating stranger swindles several St. Paul people.

It is tho greatest delusion in the world for a boy to got the idea that his life is of no consequence, and that tho character of it. will not bo noticed. A manly, truthful boy will shine like a star in any community. A boy may possess as much of noble character as a man. He may so speak and live the truth that there shall be no discount on his word. And there are such noble, Christian boys, and wider and deeper ihaii they are apt to think is their influence. They are the king boys nmoug tlielr fellows, having an influence for good, and loved and respected because of tlie simple fact of Jiving the truth,. ACE! Resume of the Principal Disorderly Uprisings of the Last Hundred Years. A Mob of 10,000 Threatened to Drag President Washington Through the Gutters. Now York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Other States Suiter from Lawless Assemblages. This free country, where law ha/3 always triumphed in the end, has seen many bloody mobs from the beglnlug of its history. Some of them are almost forgotten and are worth recalling. One of the problems which beset tho early politicians was the aggressive and Irutal custom of England in impressing our seauien ou the high seas. It se. happened that about 171W, when the question of Impressment was particularly agitating the public mind, England and France became engaged in open warfare. Washington decided upon a policy of neutrality. The gen- tral feeling in tho United States, how- over, was with France. The tricolor represented liberty, and as such was popular Avith us. At this juncture a florid, fat, fantic Frenchman appeared in America as the accredited representative of France or of the Girondists, who were upmost at the time. Citizen Genet, as he was called, had a dangerous duty to perform. Secretly he proposed' to get America to assist the French against England. Citizen Genet lauded at Charleston, where he was received with every mark of favor. Later he moved on to Philadelphia, where lie was welcomed in a fashion that led him to suppose he had the whole of America at his feet. The Fourth of July that year was more of a French celebration than an American, Genet, tlie red cap of liberty on his head, sat at the post of honor. He sang the "Marsellalse" with tremendous effect. Tho red cap of liberty was passed from man to man around the table. Next day, says tlie New York World, the town was 011 fire with enthusiasm for the French cause. An other dinner was held. At this Genet passed around the board the head of a pig upon a huge platter. As each v.uost arose, the platter passing before him, he stuck his knife in the pig's head—symbol of the late French king •-at. tho same time uttering maledictions on the head of royalty. Next Genet distributed a number of letters of marque and reprisal to such American ship's captains as his glowing offers of rewards could allure into a system of piracy directed against Great Britain. Tlie news came to official oars. Genet promptly denied his act of treason. He explained that the lommissioiis were not given under authority of the French government, but: under seal of private French enterprise; but all this only made tho matter worse. In duo course the Little Democrat: was fitted out as a privateer. Genet: came on to New York, where he was met with an enthusiastic reception. A trusted otticial in tlie employ i'f the government called on Citlzeu Genet: and asked an explanation of the fitting out; of the Little Democrat. In wild rage the irated Frenchman threatened Washington, declaring that ho would appeal from the president to tho people. Messrs. Henliold and Singletree, alleged pirates, were promptly arrested, and subsequently they were discharged. This was a r.e-w victory for Citizen Genet, who sat in tho old Tontine coffee house, Now York city, laughing gleefully, whilo out> fciile, from the flagstaff, flaunted in the breeze the red cap of liberty and the French flag. He called the proposed piracy "serving Franco." Ho said that tho United States in prosecuting, was f-'uilty of "the crime of abandoning friends." A placard was carried in the streets representing Washington on the guillotine.. Excitement ,roso to such a pitch that for days fully 10,000 people stood under AVashington's windows, before his house in Philadelphia, nireatening to drag the president through tho gutter "> AVashington was on tho point of ordering Genet out of the country when word camo that Genet's party had gone to pieces in Franco. He was forced to abandon his mission to become a private American citizen.' Pennsylvania, the scat of many riots, Mas the first state in the union'to witness a popular uprising.
