Kirkwood to his Iowa City home, prevented his appearance at the republican rally at Des Moines last Wednesday. Failing to attend he sent a letter, however, which strongly expresses his hope for and confidence in republican success. As for years he has been considered a lukewarm republican in local contests, owing to his opposition to the prohibitory law, his present outspoken desire for victory cannot but carry weight with all who, like him, have lost interest in state politics. His letter shows his appreciation that national questions overshadow local ones this fall, and that to a large extent the result in Iowa this year will influence the result at large in '92. Another significent utterance is the letter of Dr. Judd of Council Bluffs, who in an interview after the state convention stated that he should vote for Gov. Boies on account of prohibition. He now writes that he shall vote the straight republican ticket and gives his reasons: "I now desire to say in us public manner as possible that there are other questions transcending in importance the one of prohibition, and though the democratic press have endeavored to keep these questions out of sightj there are men in that party who have either failed to receive instructions, or are independent of the party lush to be controlled, and in the democratic convention in this city a few days ago one of the wheel horses of the party said in substance ; ' Grave questions will come before the next legislature requiring the consideration of experienced legislators—among them will be the redistrlctfng of the state congressionally, judicially, and legislatively, and most important of all, the enacting of a law for the election of presidential electors by congressional districts. 1 There does not exist today a man more desirous of the success of the next national republican ticket than myself, and it is evident to me now, that the entire plan of the democratic campaign with reference to next year, and that their work this year is simply a means to an end, that I would bo untrue to my party and to myself were I to aid them oven in a degree in carrying out their plans. The republican ticket from top to bottom shall receive iny support, and local issues upon which I am not in full accord with my party I cun afford to have settled In the future when national questions of such unusual importance are not involved." Thoso letters contrast favorably with that of Judge Day, who proposes to support the democratic candidates for the legislature in Polk county, because he is dissatisfied with the prohibitory law. While ho loses sight of the grout political Issues in his now-found zeal to destroy u law ho himself helped to enact, tlicso other and abler men arc willing to overlook a law they have always opposed, in order to conserve the higher interests they neo involved in the success of their party. THE only defense which the Courier makes for the local option plank GOT. Boies and Dr. Bourne stand upon is the statement that no one would pay tJie license to open a aaloon in a .country township. Why not? If, as is more than likely, Algona and all the other towns of the county should go " no license," why wouWn't saloon men pay the license to get into adjoining townships? Impartial men estimate that it is doubtful if license would, carry ia more than one town in the county. On the other hand no one doubts that it would carry in several country townships, and the outcome would be just what we pictured last week—a system of country saloons. So apparent is this that Gov. Boies has quit endorsing the platform and now endorses the Schmidt law, which in some way is intended to avoid allowing the country townships to vote on the saloon separately. But Dr. Bourne has given no sign that he does not stand as he says he does on the democratic platform. A vote for him means a vote for local option by townships, and it is he and not Gov. Boies who belongs to the law-making body. Local option of any kind is a snare and a delusion. But township option is so apparently opposed to the interests of this section that it is unaccountable how any voter can allow his ballot to help any man who favors it. KOSSUTH county should and will extend a hearty and non-partisan welcome to the political leadeas and high officials who visit us today and tomorrow. As governor of Iowa, Horace Boies oc- tion to obscene matter; neither do we believe that it would give the worthy doctor the free advertising that you did. The specialist does not agree to take incurable cases, Joseph, and yon should frot blame him if ihe has failed to help you." Sam. Clark says: " We have more than once alluded to the impractical and doctrinaire side of Gov. Boies' mind. He might be a writer of books and essays wnere he could be as freakful in opinion as he chooses, btft he is wholly out of place as an executive. Thus he said in his speech at Tipton that ' a boy who cannot be saved without the law is not worth saving.' If Gov. Boies were a private citizen he might utter slap-dash opinions of that sort, but it is amazing that he cannot -see how wholly .and outrageously out of place it is for him as chief executive of the laws of a state to be talking in that way. By such an utterance he fight* the legislature and people of Iowa for making reform schools. 'If you cannot save a boy without law let him be lost' We have just been publishing the notice of the mayor and health physician of Keokuk enjoining health laws. Gov. Boies answers 'if you cannot save the people without law let them perish.' His position is absurd. He has become the worst crank about and against law there Is in Iowa." The Courier says the democrats don't object to Dr. Bourne's voting for ev«ry alliance measure. Electing Mr. Westfall governor is the chief aim of the third party at present. Do Gov. Boies' friends view Dr, Bourne complacently as a backer of the peoples' party ticket? places 6n the 30th and 31st. Be is a fine speaker and well posted oh political affairs. Sheldon Mail: Rev. W. Bt.

Republicans and democrats alike should unite to make the reception of both a credit to the county, and to give that considerate attention to their arguments which alone leads to correct and intelligent conclusions.

Democratic statements in Ohio about Blaino'a attitude toward tho MeKinley bill have called out a characteristic letter from tho man of Muino.

This difference tho democrats have refused to take note of, hut have quoted his criticisms of the original mwxsuro as though they applied equally to tho present law. liluino in his letters to Senator Prye very frankly dissented from the original tariff policy proposed in congress, hut in tills letter he as frankly states that ho cordially supports tho measure a» now perfected.

In his leases the governor wants half his land in corn, although corn does not pay, and divides on a basis of 40 bushels of sound corn per acre, although corn yields, by his figures, only 33i bushels. Gov. Boies as politician and"Goy. Boies as farmer recall a story they used to toll on Moses Bloom when mayor of Iowa City. When one of his political friends was caught in some plainly proved scrape it became Mayor Bloom's painful duty to pass judgment on him, which he did thus' discreetly: "As Moses Bloom I think you are innocent, but as Moses Bloom mayor of Iowa City, I think you are guilty, and I fine you $10," With Gov. Boies it is: " As Horace Boies, corn suits mo, but as Horace Boies governor of Iowa, corn is an i!nprofitable cereal and a bad thing generally." Senator Funk's opponent, C. C. Painter, has not yet visited Kossuth, so far we have learned. If he is making an active canvass he is doing it so quietly that it at tracts no attention. The big republican majority insures the senator's easy election, but in Kossuth his vote ought to be more than a mere party showing, and we believe will express the friendly fooling that exists toward him among voters of all shades of opinion. Senator Funk should have a vote in this county that will be an unmistakable personal compliment to him, •» Senator Funk writes: " If Wheeler's majority is not above ten thousand many good signs must absolutely fall."

Hapgood has translated a large number of Tolstoy's books and Miss Isabel F. Hapgood has been Journeying in Russia. What more natural than that she should see "Cound Tolstoy at Home," and what still more natural than thatsheshould make this the title and subject of a paper in the November Atlantic? There has not been a more vivid or appreciative sketch of Tolstoy- yet written. Miss Hapgood, although admiring his great gifts, is not a blind adherent of his changeable philosophies. And her sketch is so clever, so trenchant, so well-bred, that • it must be read if one would understand Tolstoy better than he understands himself. Here is a bit of information: the name Tolstoy with the "y» is the writer's own way of spelling his own name,- and not a typographical error.

What promised to be an interesting case Was the slander suit of John Schneider against Michael Wagner, both of LuVerne. It seems Michael had called the plaintiff a thief, but Michael claimed that John had used opprobrious epithets, and when the court held that the jury should pass upon these, both parties consented to compromise and each paid half the costs.

Wade was up from Iowa City to assist J. W. Sullivan and went home the same day he arrived. The plaintiffs in the case against the Northwestern road for not letting them ride home on the freight after the Allison meeting two year ago as had been arranged, were Geo. W. Hanna, R. W. Hanna, Henry Klindt, M. D. Godfrey, and D. Rahm. Dr. Lacy got $400 in the United States court, as his knee was hurt. The company settled with the others, making them a liberal allowance for the night they spent in Algona. In P. F. Howell vs. the Brown brothers the question raised was in connection with a foreclosure. The Browne had arranged to sell Howell's stuff under a chattel mortgage. Howell enjoined them because they had his hogs and would not give them up, and the question came before the judge. After hearing the evidence he allowed Howell $100 for the hogs and allowed the Browns to foreclose after paying that amount. E. H. Clarke was assisted by Geo. E. for Howell, and W. B. Quarton represented the Bi-owns. In Wright vs. Dolton the question of a saddle trade at Bancroft was up, and the judge sent it back to the justice because the jury's verdict was so mixed it i v <.f n in THE UPP EB DES MOINES at the time of the assault. He and 1 Jenny Bowman were walking near the Milwaukee depot and were there ae- costed by the defendants. They were met again near where the two railroad tracks cross, and jostled. At, both places insulting words were used, and threats made. Near Reimer's Allen drew his knife to defend himself, but put it up at their request, when both came for him, Hubbard drawing his knife. Miss Bowman kept Rantzowoff, but Hubbard cut Allen as has been described. Jennie Bowman and Walter Stebbins also finished their testimony in the afternoon* and evening, essentially corroborating Allen's account. Mr. Wade has subjected all the witnesses to a severe cross-examination, with what effect the summing up will show. The testimony will probably all be in today and the case finished tomorrow.

The first case to come before the jury was the hog case from Lotts Creek, which was appealed from 'Squire Walker's court. This is the case where the Meyers boys were charged with turning Mittag's horses loose among his brood sows, killing several litters of pigs. 'Squire Walker held that as hogs were unprofitable that year, no damage was done Mr. Mittag by having his killed, but on the contrary it was really a benefit to him, and dismissed the defendants. W. B. Quarton appeared for Mittag, and Sullivan and K H. Clarke for the Meyers. No testimony was taken for the defense except to impeach Mittag, and the jury gave Mittag one dollar damages. The second case was that of Meiers of LuVerne against the Central Elevator company for a failure to carry out a contract to buy grain. J. C. Raymond and Geo. E.
