E)or the first time Kossuth county got & taste of what may property called "colonized" voters yesterday. The , employes engaged in building the grade across the north end of the county had been all fixed to come to the polls and vote in a body, and were so far as known fixed to vote the democratic ticket. The only difference between their attempt to control the county election and the fraud known as "colonizing" is that they came to the county fora legal purpose. But so far as their right to vote in a body is concerned it was no greater than as though a couple o| hundred had been hired to stay here sixty days to overturn the honest votes of the honest residents of the county. Through some inadvortancy of the democratic managers the scheme to vote this body leaked out, and the republicans took prompt steps to stop! it. Monday night Goo. E. Clarke, W. B. Quartern, County Chairman S. S. Sessions, Jr W. Wadsworth, W. L. Joslyn, and B. W. Haggard went north, and on Tuesday scattered at Ledyard, Harrison, and Swea- voting precincts, \ where the railroad hands were expected. They read the law to the election judges an,d then stood with warrants to arrest anyone voting illegally. At Ledyard the Riley camp came in a body, and KUey and four others were put under arrest as soon a3 they swore In their votes. There was no trouble here and not much discussion. J. W. Sullivan was present, having gone up late the night before, but so far as can be learned d,id not advise the men to insist on voting. The hearing of these men conies tomorrow at Ledyard. At Harrison Messrs. Quaton and Wadsworth were met by Lawyer Thompson of Bancroft who after hearing the Iowa City case read did not insist on having the railway men vote. None of thorn did vote, though one who admitted that his family was now living at St. Jo, went so far as to swear his vote in and then refused to cast it. At Swea there was no trouble and no votes were • cast, Messrs. Sessions and Joslyn going there and again finding numerous democrats looking for a chance to run the votes in', In all probability 100 illegal votes were shut out by the timely action taken,, if none were cast after the men left the polls. This is the county's first experience of this kind and should be its last, Three of the men arrested -at Ledyard are in jail in Algona. Two gave bail. ARRESTS AT WESLEY. Word came yesterday that young Kunz and one of the Huber boys had been arrested for electioneering within 100 feet of the polls. It seems Kunz' store adjoins the polling place, and he and Huber were advising someone how to vote in the store. They were taken before 'Squire Robinson who fined them $25 each and costs. Huber paid but Kunz came to Algona and secured Attorney Sullivan to fight the case. It raises a question of importance in connection with the new law. Both Huber and Kunz are democrats. THE LAW REGULATING VOTING. The law governing this whole matter has been settled absolutely in this state • so that there is no possible ground for any dispute. The state constitution provides that " every mule citizen of the United States of the age of 21 years who shall have been a resident of this state six mouths next preceding the election, and of the county in which he claims his vote, sixty days, shall be entitled to vote at all elections which are now or hereafter may be authorized by law." The question at once arises what is "a resident" and who are " residents" sixty days. The supreme court passed on this question in 1880 in a case which arose in Iowa City. A student named Vanderpoel insisted on voting, but was challenged by the local democrats on the ground that he was not a resident of Iowa City although he had attended school there for four years. The matter was hotly contested, and the supreme court in deciding that he was not a resident settled the law in all sivniliar cases. A few paragraphs from the opinion which is on page 240 of the 53rd Iowa reports will convince any intelligent person that that law applies to all such instances as this in Kossuth. Vanderpoel in answer to the question of his intentions of leaving Iowa City had said: "I didn't know what I would do after I graduated. I was not aware that I would ever leave Iowa City. I flld not know what I would do afterwards. I was at that time without any intention." The supreme court first 9»ya that this lack of intention of leav- ipg Iowa City is not enough, but that there must be an affirmative intention not to leave before he becomes a resident. It then says: " It is undoubtedly true that the residence of the plaintiff was in Mitchell county at the time ho first went to Iowa City, and it must be equally true that it so continued until he acquired another. Another proposition will, we think, be conceded, and that is, that an individual cannot be entitled to vote in two different counties in this 'state at the same elec- ' tion. Yet he may, in a certain sense, actually reside in one and be a legal vpter in another. He is entitled to vote only in the county where his home is—where his fixed place of residence is for the time being—and such place is, and must be his domicile, or place of abode, as distinguished from a residence acquired as a sojourner for business purposes, the attainment of an education, or any other purpose of a temporary character. If a person leaves the place of his residence or home with the intent of residing in some other place and making it his fixed place of residence, but never consummates such intent, it cannot be said his residence has been changed thereby. But if he so intends, and does actually become a resident of another place, then the former residence will be regarded us abandoned and a new one acquired. The intent and the fact must concur." This is perfectly clear to the most casual reader. But the ctiuft in one paragraph states the whole law still more explicitly by saying; "The circuit court seems to have been of the opinion that if the plaintiff (Zander: pool) resided in Iowa City for the required length of time and had ho present intention of leaving when he ceased to attend the university, that such place in a constitutional sense became his residence. Under this view the plaintiff would become a residept and voter in Iowa City although he was there for a temporary purpose and had not formed affirmatively the intention to become a resident of such place. This we do not think is the law." By this it is plainly apparent that it was hot enough that the construction hands in the north part of the county had been in the county sixty days, nor even yet that they had no intention of leaving the county. TO become voters it was necessary that they had come to Kossuth with an affirmative intention of becoming residents and of locating here. This everyone knows they did not do. It makes no difference if they had been here 60 months instead of 00 days they are not voters unless their intention was to become permanent residents of the county, and unless that intention was supported by their open and notorious acts. dangerous as cholera.

WESLEY, Nov, 8.—Monday was a fair introduction of winter which made us think of our empty coal houses and of what we have done with our winter wraps. Election passed off quietly yet not without some excitement. All parties kept a sharp lookout that the other side did not take any unjust advantage. The Australian system of voting was new and quite novel to many of our voters. T. A. Clark informs us that he intends moving to West Bend, where he has been offered a position in the creamery business. We are sorry to have Mr. Clark leave. He has been here quite a long time in the employ of Lawson & Oleson Bros, as their butter- maker and through his "skillful handling of the creamery business for them their butter has a world-wide reputation. Lawson & Oleson Bros, will have to look around awhile if they find a man as good to fill the place who the patrons will be as well pleased with. We wish Mr.Clarke success. A movement is now on foot to fence the Wesley cemetery. It is proposed to put a picket fence on the north and a board fence on the other three sides. All those that are owing anything to the association for lots are requested to call at the office of Guy M. Butts and settle.

SOME STATE HISTOBY. The Famous Dinner Party of Senator Gatch — Did the Republicans Plot Against Prohibition) The Des Moines News has for a year been asserting that Senator Allison, Col. HenSerson and others were at a dinner party given by Senator Gatch last fall before the state campaign and that they then agreed to let Wheeler be defeated and let prohibition go with him. After repeated challenges to produce its authority the News Saturday published a letter from Prof. Cornwall, who has spoken in Algona, in which he says that Rev. Hutchinson, a relative of Mrs. Gatch, told him. This is all the substance there is to the story after all this time. The Register immediately telegraphed to those present, and here are their answers: DUBUQUE, Nov. 5,—R. P. Clarkson: There was no discussion of prohibition at Col. Catch's dinner or lunch, nor was the subject mentioned in my hearing. The lunch was wholly social and the time occupied was brief. The charge is a pure fabrication. W. B. ALLISON. DUBUQUE, Nov. 5,—R. P. Clarkson: The subject of prohibition was not even referred to at the Gatch dinner during the meeting of Crocker Brigade. It was wholly social and had no political significance whatever, D. B. HENDERSON. STORM LAKE, Nov, 5.—Editor of the Register: I notice that the Des Moines News is still rehashing the Gatch dinner party story. I say now. as I have said before, that the News' statement concerning the same is absolutely false in every particular, and the editor of the News knows it is false. I told him the same in a conversation months ago. Further, I wish to say that Prof. Cornwall, a speaker then in the employ of the State Temperance alliance, came to my room at the Savery house in Des Moines during the session of the last legislature, and urged me to do what I could to secure the passage of the Gatch license bill. EDGAR E. MACK. The Register also publishes Senator Gatch's letter to Hon, Jas. Harlan as follows: My Dear Sir: Yours 22d inst. received, and replying to same I have to say that I did give a dinner party at the time referred to. Those present were Senator Allison, Col. Henderson, Gov. Hull, Senator Mack, Attorney General Stone, Judge Conner, and Rev. Geo. Hutchinson. The question of prohibition was not discussed, nor was there any mention of any phase of that question. I have made public denial of the charge in the letter referred to by you, and did so on the floor of the senate last winter, and now only repeat the denial in response to an inquiry coming from so respected a source. I am, with great respect, yours truly, C. H. GATCH. These denials will probably settle the question in the minds of all and put at rest the News' silly story. The invention of it is of a piece with the rest of the third party record this fall. \ "* 1 A Cholera Scare. A reported\ outbreak of cholera at Helmetta, N.
