Reports Indicate that there Was Criminal Negligence on the Part of Company—The Details. the A couple of weeks ago in mentioning the Alffonians in the street car service Of Minneapolis we named Gust. Fenske, or " Gns, the hus driver" as he used to "be known. This week Gas. is no longer with the street car service. Thursday night last a broken car was Bet off the track near the line he was running on. By some mistake it was left too close to the track, and asGus.'car came Tjy he happened to be on the sifle rail collecting fares with Ms hack to the front. The broken car caught him and the blow on the back of the bead stunned him so that he died in a few minutes. The remains were brought to Fenton at once and Saturday he was "buried there, the funeral services being belli IB the Lutheran church. He had » si.-,ter living near Whittemore. Mrs. B.iits, and besides had two brothers. Gusl. was well known in Algona. working first for Louis L/essing, and afterwards driving bus. He was industrious and economical and when killed had 81.700 at interest. The Pioneer Press gives the following account of the nccident: some details being incorrect: " M. F. Finrfry, conductor Iso. 404 of the interurban line, was killed last night at 11:40 by being knocked from his car by a derailed car between Snelling and Lexington avenues. The accident was caused by a derailed car having been left too near the track. Finsky was collecting fares on the front end of the car and he had just stepped down on the loot board to pass some of the passengers who were clinging to the side of the car. The back of his bead struck the side of the derailed car and the skull was crushed in. He was placed on the ear in an uneoncious condition and brought to St. Paul. He died about ten minutes after being taken into Lutz's drug store, corner Wabasha and Fifth streets. Coroner Darling was called and he ordered the body taken into the undertaking establishment of McCarthy & Donnelly. Mr. Darling said he did not know whether he w'ould hold an inquest or not but would decide in the morning. The deceased was unmarried but lived with his parents at Midway." The Minneapolis Journal heads its report "Probable Criminal Negligence," which seems to be the opinion of all. The company paid all expenses of Feneke's funeral, and will undoubtedly be made to pay a large eum for his death. His friends will take steps at once in the matter' in Isw by the same mane commerce is; unsettled and confused, and the tiiiwary anfl ignorant are cheated. ^Dollars eft unequal commercial "valoc will trot circulate together. The better dollar is •withdrawn and becomes merchandise. The true interests of our jjeople, and especially o! the farmers and working people, who cannot closely observe the money market, is that every dollar— paper or coin— issued or authorized by the government shall at all times and in all uses be the exact equivalent, not only in debt paying but in purchasing power of any other dollar. I am quite sure that if we should now act upon this subject independently of other nations, we would greatly promote their interests and injure our own. The monetary conditions in Europe within the last'two years have, I think, tended very much to develop a sentiment in favor of a larger use of silver, and I was much pleased and encouraged by the cordiality, promptness," and unanimity with which the invitation of this government for an international conference upon this subject was accepted by all the powers. We may not only hope for but expect highly beneficial results from this conference which will now soon assemble. When the result of the conference is known we shall then be able intelligently to readjust our financial legislation to any new conditions. At Geo. E. Marble's, Hurt. We intend to move into our new store soon, where we will have more and better room. I heartily thank my friends in Burt and vicinity for the very liberal patronage given me, and hope with increased facilities to be able to serve you better. We have some bargains to offer that are worth your while to look at. I am here to sell goods as low as possible, but will not buy cheap, shoddy goods.

The Grand Canon of the Colorado river, in Arizona, is now for the first time easily accessible to tourists. A regular stage line ha* been established from Flagstaff, Arizona, on the Atlantic & Pacific railroad, making the trip from Flagstaff to the most imposuu: part of the canon in less than twelve hours. The staire fare lor the round trip is only £30, and meals and comfortable lodging are provided throughout the trip at a reasonable price. The view of the Grand Canon afforded at the terminus of the stage route is the most stupendous panorama known in nature. There is also a trail at this point leading down the canon wall, more than 6,000 feet vertically, to the river below. The descent of the trail is a grander experience than climbing the Alps, for in the bottom of this terrific and sublime chasm are hundreds of mountains greater than any of the Alpine ranee. A book describing the trip to the Grand Canon, illustrated by many full-page engravings from special photographs, and furnishing all needful information, may be obtained free upon application to Jno. 3.

Office over Galbraitb/6 store. A. Hamilton & Co., Have a full line of BEPUBLIOAff MOffETABY POLICY. A. Hound Money System as Presented by 1'resideiit Harrison — The True Interests of tlie People. In MB letter accepting the republican nomination, President Harrison discusses state banks and the silver issue. He eays: The republican party during the civil war devised a new currency consisting of UniU^d States notes issued and redeemable by the government and of national bank notes, based upon security of United States bonds. A tax was levied upon the issues of state banks and intended as a result that .all such issues Bliould be withdrawn as realized. There are men among us now who never saw a state bank note. Notes furnished directly or indirectly by the United States have been the only safe and acceptable paper currency of the people. Bank failures have brought no fright, delay or loss to bill holders. The note of an insolvent bank is as good and as current as a treasury note, for the credit of the United States is behind it. Our money is all national money. I might almost say international, for these bills are not only equally and indiscriminately accepted at par in all states, but also in some foreign countries. The democratic party if entrusted with the control of the government is now pledged to repeal the tax on state bank issues, with a view of putting in to circulation again, under such diverse legislation as the state may adopt, a flood of local bank issues, Only those, who before the war experienced inconvenience and losses attendant upon tho use of such money, appreciate what a return to that system involves. Tho denomination of a bill was then often uo Indication of its value. The Bank Detector of yesterday was not a safe guide today for credit or value. Merchants deposited several times during tho day lest at the hour of the bank closing should show a depreciation of tho money taken in in the morning. The traveler could not use in his journey to the east, issues of the most solvent banks in the west and in consequence a money changer's office was a familiar neighbor of the ticket office and lunch countei". The farmer and laborer found money received for their products or labor depreciated when they came to make purchases and the whole business country hindered and burdened. Changes may become necessary, but a national system of currency—safe and acceptable throughout the whole country is the fruit of bitter experiences, and I am sure our people will not consent to the reclinatory proposal made by the democratic party. \ THE SILVER QUESTION. The resolution of the convention in favor of bitnetalisin declares, I think, the true and necessary condition of a movement that has, upon these lines, jny cordial adherence and support. 1 ana thoroughly convinced that the free coinage of silver at such a ratio to gold as will maintain the equality in their commercial uses of the two coined dollars, would conduce to the prosperity of all the great producing and commercial nations of the world. The one essential condition is that these dollars shall have and retain an equal acceptability and value in all commercial transactions. They are not only a medium of exchange, but a measure of values; and when unequal measures are called Miss Cora Hibbard's sister was over from Emmetsburg last week to visit her. Miss Nannie Frazier starts tomorrow for a visit to her old home in New York. Chester Call joins the ranks of college students this fall and is at Evanston. He started Friday.

Mrs. Dorland will return and spend a few weeks in Algona before going south again. Mr. and Mrs. L. F. Robinson are up from Des Moines shaking hands with old acquaintances. They enjoy their Des Moines home, and are building a new residence this season. Thos. F. Cooke did not return with Company F but remains at Sioux City this week to attend the meeting of the Third regiment. As inspector of small arms practice he is expected to visit all four regiments. Miss Edith Clarke and her friend, Miss Baker, started for Chicago yesterday evening. After visiting at Evanston Miss Clarke goes to Boston, where she will visit and spend some time in the school of oratory. Hon. J. H. Westover of Chicago was here Monday to escort Mrs. Susan A. Stewart to his home. Mrs. Stewart has spent four years with Rev. Dorward's family, but goes now to live with her daughter in Chicago. I. Ames came up from Missouri a week ago on business. < He says that section has suffered with, the rest, but that he and the other Kossuth people enjoy it there. He reports Uncle Tom Clarke well and Geo. Buskirk also. Pedigree of Boston's "Four Hundred." "Every chap in Boston has been running for a pedigree lately," said a good natured son of the Emerald Isle yesterday at the North End mission, "and some o 1 them fellers np there on Bacon's Hill, as have been putting their names in the Foor Hundred lately, ought to be ashamed of theirselves for trying to de- save people. Sure, one of them that goes a strutting about with his eyeglass came from just the same stock as meself and has nearly blinded his two eyes looking for his name in the book of martyrs. "His grandfather and mine came over from the ould country in the ship Marianne about fifty years ago, wid the same intention of making a home. "Begorra, there was no aristocracy on board the Marianne, for he washed the dishes and me grandfather did chores around the vessel. "And ye should see them now. Know me? Faith, if 'there wasn't anybody else in the city to know, they wouldn't know Tim Doherty. "It's nothing but the ancientness of their families you hear of these days.

Last April she was taken down with measles, followed b,v a fearful cough and turning into a fever. Doctors at home and at Detroit treated her, but in vain; she grew worse rapidly until she was a mere "handful of bones." Then she tried Dr. King's New Discovery, and after the use of two and a half bottles was completely cured.

DOCK Fraud Worth More Than the Original. The art frauds that have taken shape and substance, which remain to incum- ber the world as false coin ever circulating from hand to hand, are of all times and periods. The archseology of fraud even has become a science; some of the overt and acknowledged frauds themselves have attained the status of precious and coveted works, more valuable in the strange gyrations in the wheel of time than the originals they simulated. Michael Angelo's marble Cupid, for instance, which he made in- secret, broke and mutilated, buried in a vineyard, and dug up again himself, all for the express "taking in" a certain cardinal, collector of antique marbles and contemner of modern art, is a case in point. If this particular Cupid could now be identified it would probably be worth more than the most beautiful genuine antique work of its kind which Italian soil still enshrouds,—Nineteenth Century.

Sir Francis Head tried the diet of the Pampas Indians, which consists of the flesh of mares, for these savages eat neither bread, fruit nor vegetables. He says: After I had been riding three or fonr months, and had lived on beef and water, I found myself in a condition -which I can only describe by saying that I felt that no exertion could kill me, although I constantly arrived so completely exhausted that 1 could not speak; yet a few hours' sleep upon my saddle on the ground always so completely restored me that for a week I could daily be upon my horse before sunrise, could ride till two or three hours after sunset, and have really tired ten or twelve horses a day. This will explain the immense distances which people in South America are said to ride, which I am confident could only be done on beef and water.
