TII.K CIIIUAN OtTTttAOK. The order which has been issued for three of the best American war vessels to repair to Chili at once, and the defiant tone of that country point to possible hostilities. The situation exists because of the massacre of one American sailor in the streets of Valparaiso, the wounding of several others, and the il legal imprisonment of thirty-fivoothers. The men were unarmed and were walk lag in the streets pcacably when they wore set upon, and the police instead of assisting them became the most dangerous of their assailants. One American was dragged through the streets with a rope around his neck by a horse,, and other Indignities have been shown the unlucky prisoners. The men wore their American uniforms, and that was the occasion of the attack, as the new Chilian government Is mad because it IB charged that our minister, Patrick Egan, showed the dead dictator, Bal- macedu, HOIIIO favors during their civil war just ended, and the citizens took vengonco on unoffending citizens known to belong to this country, President Harrison and Secretary Dlulno have politely but firmly insisted on a settlement for the outrage, but Chill has returned a haughty answer, and what the outcome will bo remains to bo scon. The order of ships south evidently indicates that the backbone that has thus far characterized this administration has not weakened, and that Chili will cither apologize or a test will bo made of our now navy. If Americans have boon in the wrong the matter should bo ' fully investigated.. But if the Chilian outrage Is unprovoked the little country and all that abide in it ought to be blown into mid ocean. TIIH IMtOHI'KCTH KOH TINIM.ATK. Congressman Ncldrlnghaus of St. Louis In one of the now tlnplato manufacturers and advocates of the tin tariff. In Chicago last week ho was interviewed and said: "To establish t,ho tlnplato Industry In the United States, wo will tiuvo to Import WX) workmen from England, Those men will bo exports In tinpluto-muklng, and with tho uBBlstunca of thuso MM) lit loustr>0,(XX) American workmen will become tlnpluto-makors, Tho wliolo question of tho tariff ou tlnpluto routs right at this point, and It is: ' Shall wo give this work to 50,000 men In England or to 40.500 Amoi'iuium mid 500 Englishmen, who will coino over liuro and toacli thorn tho process of tlnplute-muklngl' Wo cannot malto tin as cheaply In thin country as in England, but wo certainly can turn out tinpluto at tho sumo rates tho American people havo boon paying In tho hint do/.on .years, and In tho noxt twolvo years tho people will pay no moro for tho domestic tin than they huvo in tho past. Olvo us workmen at European wagon and wo will run Uio English concerns out of business, but paying American wages, as wo do, wo cnn- jiot do moro than supply tho American market. Our ttnplato is soiling now at 40.25 por box, and that is about tho price of tho English goods." He also staled in ills talk that ho IH paying twice as high wngcsin St. Louis UH tho same workmen arc getting in tho Welsh factories. There has boon so much discussion of tho possibilities and probabilities of thin tin business that its future will bocurlously watched, 11. G. llorr, in answering a Boston free trade club, staked tho wliolo Issue of jiroloollon on It. Ho submitted that if us a roHiilt of the tarilV American fuoto- «'loB did not open, and by their competition ruduco tho prlco of tin bulow what it was when tho tariff was increased, ho would admit his theory is wrong. Tho Boston club made no response, and failed to accept tho tost. TI1K KKKMCY GOLD CUItK. So muoh lias boon said about Dr. Kooloy'H Institute for curing tho whlwk- oy and morphine habits, and HO overwhelming is tho published testimony of tho graduates that thoro can no longer bo any reasonable doubt of tho oflicaoy of his romarkablo discovery. Tho institute IH located at Dwlght, 111,, 72 miles southwest of Chicago, and his euro consists of injections of n preparation of bi-chloride of gold. Tho exact .twin position is a BOO rot which ho has not dlscloHod. Many able physicians liavo ridiculed his theory, but so many uonllrmod drunkards huvo boon absolutely cured that doubt has about disappeared. Tho Hl-chlorido club of Chicago nuiulmrB hundrudH of professional 4ind business men, who openly give their own experience anil who furnish tho statistics of euros. Of all who have thus far attended over 1)5 per cent, huvo remained permanently free from a taste for liquor. In the last North American lie-view a Now York literary man tells his story over his own name, and in Sunday's Minneapolis Journal Jus. 1C. Merrill gives a three eolunin report of Ills own ease. Mr. Merrill Is a prominent man in tho Hour city, and the Journal endorses all ho says. Speaking of a CUBO at tho instituto while lie was there he tells this story: "Another man, formerly of Minneapolis, told mo ho hud not drawn u sober brouth In two years, that most of tho timo ho had upon! in Mexico, and ho drank mescal until lie liud hulled with satisfaction short prison seutoncca us u relief from his curse. Ho drew from his iwkot tho photojfruphs of three pretty girls., iind with tours in his *}yo» told mo thut bis wifo hud secured u divorce from him on account of this habit, thjit ouo of tho bullion was doud and thut ho Jiad como to IMvlght us u lust resort, und his only hope on earth was to be cored, to that Mme day be might hat« the good fortune to be reunited to hUfamlly-andrestore hi« Htnndlng and hi* name. This man I have known for 15 years. Pew better accountant* ever picked np a pen. He stopped drinking two days after he reached there, and I do not believe ho will commence again, either." There are now over 600 at Dwight, rich and poor, from all parts of the known world, taking treatment. .The usual time for liquor drinkers la three or four weeks. Morphine, opium, or cocaine victims require alonger course. Both sides claimed Iowa by 12,OOC Sunday, and were confident that they had figure* for it. ^ The geographical society now spell it Chile Instead of Chill as of old. The proper spelling will be Chilly if they don't quit fooling with Uncle Sam. Sunol, Senator Stanford's great »are, has beaten tho time of Maud S, and has tho world's trotting record at 2:8#. Maud S hud tho record for years at 2 :8%. Allerton Thus says tho Kansas City Journal: "Chllols a country wo can lick, and we don't In ko nny Insulting remarks from her." The Carroll Herald again attends to our contemporary's case with neatness and dispatch: "Tho Algona Republican quotes from tho Lohrvlllo Enterprise In reply to our 'discourtesy 1 In expressing an opinion on a subject to which a printed label on" a copy of tho Republican culled our attention und asked for a candid expression. All right; tho Enterprise and Republican can have It all their own wuy. If they can rcg- ulutc tho country press It is well; tho Horalil must beg leave to plod nlong 'with Its ' discourtesies'— It's built that way. But If tho young editor doesn't want u 'candid expression" ho mustn't usk for It. He muy run agnlnst some follow who can't taffy him as ho desires." Senator Allison and Congressman DolHver wore both perfectly confident of Wheeler's election, and so expressed themselves In Sunday's Rogigtcr. John P. Buncombe mentioned Blalno In a speech at Eldorn, and tho audience cheered so lustily that ho had hard work to got started on his argument ugnln, ho was so disconcerted. Tho Sioux City Journal says truly: " An election but proves nothing, except that one of two guesses Is certainly wrong." Gov. Boles made a wonderful canvass for u man of hls'ugo, closing Saturday with a trip of 100 miles In which ho made many speeches. The great final mooting was at Waterloo In tho evening at Gov. Boles' own homo. . On tho morning of election the democratic papers had what purported to bo a letter from H. C. Wheeler to W. C. Turnoy, as follows: "Your favor of tho 21st was duly received. I have made no pledges of any kind nor to any person that I would sign a high license bill, for that would bo in conflict with my views. Neither have I said that I would veto a state constabulary act. On tho contrary, I should deem It my duty to approve a law providing for complete enforcement of tho present law in all tho localities of this state should such a one bo passed by tho next legislature." Minneapolis Is making a big effort to got tho next national republican convention. The republicans had a closing rally at Ottumwa with Win. E. Mason of Chicago, Saturday night. Tho same night tho democrats closed In Dos Molnos with Fred. W, Lehman of St, Louis. President Cleveland spoke in Boston Saturday night for tho Massachusetts democrats, Ho mot a groat reception. Tho republican candidate for governor of Now York, .T. Slout Fussott, has made a wonderful campaign. Ho spoke many times a day for weeks, and always with effect. It Is said that his opponent, R. P. Flower, gave $350,000 to tho campaign fund against him, and Flower's brother-in-law a like amount. As Fassott married a Crocker of Sacramento, it Is unlikely that his campaign has suffered for want of funds. Tho latest guesses before election gave Ohio to MeKInloy by u safe vote. Campbell at tho close hired a special train and mude six speeches a day. This has been the greatest campaign over conducted in Iowa. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. The llrst number of tho nineteenth volume of St. Nicholas contulns tho beginning of u serial for boys, by Brundor Matthews. It Is called "Tom Paulding," and deals with the search by a Now York boy for buried treasure in the upper part of Man- huttcn Island. Local color is given to tho first chapter by the bright Homos ofanoleo- tion-night lire. This is Mr. Matthews' first venture in writing a long story for tho young, -*•+Tho Century has Just " como of age," and In Its November number begins its twenty- second year with some notable " features.'" Mr. Cole's engravings of tho masterpieces of tho Italian painters reaches u elimux in the full-page blocks, after two of tho Sibyls of Michelangelo, which are printed as u double frontispiece In The Century for November, und which are tho prelude of tho concluding your of this important series. Thoro is un editorial article culling renewed attention to this series, under tho title " Au American Achievement in Art," und stating that those blocks of Mr, Colo's uro still classified by the treasury department, not us works of art, but merely us "mumi- fucturos of wood." IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Kossuth friends of A. C. Purkor will regret to learii thut ho is sick again. Tho Spencer News says: A. C. Parker is suffering from {mother attack of his old malady, brought on by overwork. The Andrews Opera company were at Humboldt Monday night. Bode has petitioned for incorporation. The town pint will include 260 acres, containing 237 people. Livermore Independent: Many of our people went to Algona Wednesday of last week to hear Gov. Boies speak and the following day to listen to a speech from Mr, Allison. On Saturday, Oct. 17, Renwick voted on the question of being incorporated and 45 votes were cast in its favor and an only one against.. An election will soon be called to choose city officers. Humboldt independent: Tom Sherman, now of Bancroft, last week left hia banking business long enough to make his friends here a flying visit. They hope ho will in the future fly in more often than ho has been in the hnbit of doing. Goldfleld Chronicle: Mrs, H. R. Smith and Juno are visiting relatives in Algona Mr. Allan Wilson and Mrs. S. P. Smith of Tracr, and Mr. West and Miss Flora Wilson of, Bancroft were summoned hero last week on account, of tho illness of John Wilson. Views on Protection. "' There IB another thing, coming to tho matter of money: The man or tho nation that raises and ( sells raw mate-, rial will grow ignorant and poor. The raising of raw material does not require 1 any particular intelligence in tho labor. The consequence is that it remains Ignorant, because man as a rule lives in accordance with his necessities and opportunities, especially with his necessities. Now if instead of raising and selling raw cotton we sell cotton as cloth, as car wheels, and In every possible form In which cotton can bo manufactured, then wo got in our country npt only the profits of the raw material, but of the manufactured article. In other words wo got all the profits out of 'the'COtton business that is in tho cotton business. So, if we simply dig iron ore and ship it wo remain poor; but when we put that iron in every form in which It can bo used we not only get all tho profit there is in the iron business, but wo develop the intelligence of tho people; aud 'there is a vast difference between the intelligence that digs the ore and the intelligence that makes the locomotive. There is a vast difference in the intelligence of the man who simply digs in the ground and that of the man who constructs an engine capable of forcing a ship across the Atlantic in six days. So I might go on showing tho thousands and thousands of things made out of iron, not only in tho making of which there is profit, but tho making of which develops the mind of. the maker. So you might take everything that wo raise and the same doctrine will apply. Tho farmer that raises corn and sells it as corn is not so apt to get what they call fore-handed as tho one who sells his corn not as corn but as pork, beef and horses. The latter makes all tho profit that is made out of tho corn business. When we take into consideration the difference between the raw material and tho manufactured thing wo see why this doctrine is true. The raw material of tho locomotive is not worth to exceed $5 or lot us say $10, and I moan by " raw material" tho ore in the ground and the coal in the ground and the limestone used in tho furnace. Now the difference between the $10'and the $10,000 for which the locomotive sells Is madp by labor, by ingenuity, by tho development of tho .brain. So it seems that in every point of view protection is good. But they say: " Wo can got steel rails cheaper in England than we can get them hero." Well, lot us see. Suppose wo pay $J!0 for a ton of steel rails made in the United States. Then we open tho books and tho account is: "The United Slates, credit by one ton of stool rails, i?80. The United States credit by cash for one ton of steel rails $80." That is to say, at tho end of the transaction thpro is a ton of stool rails and $30 all in tho United States. Twenty Miles of JilnckblrtlB, Webster City Freeman: Last Friday afternoon millions of blackbirds passed over this city, going from tho northwest to tho southeast. It took the column (which seemed to bo thirty or forty foot wide,) just two hours, from 3 to 5 o'clock, to pass a given point, and at an estimated flight of 10 miles per hour there wore 20 miles of blackbirds in tills migrating column. They were not over 200 foot in tho air, and the un- usal spectacle was witnessed by scores of people along the streets who declared tkoy never saw such a sight in all tholr lives. Tho birds wore evidently starting on a long pilgrimage to a moro southerly ollmuto, and many of thorn seemed to lly as though thoy had come from a long distance. But when tho roar end of tho long black column had passed, not a- single straggler was to bo soon; every one of tho millions of birds in tho grand hogira kept up with tho procession. It was, indeed, a singiular sight. ou AVoiunii Sulfrngo. A Chicago Tribune reporter last week asked llobt. Ingorsoll what ho thought of women voters and he said: "I claim no right thut I am not willing to give to my wifo and daughters and to the wives and daughters .of other men. Wo will never have u generation of great men until wo have hud u generation of l^roal women. I do not regard ignor- iince as tho foundation of virtue, nor iisolessness us one of tho requisites of a lady. I am a believer in equal rights. Those who are amenable to tho laws ihould have a voice in making- tho luws. In every department whore woman has hod an equal opportunity sho has shown that she has equal capac- ,ty, George Sand was a great writer; jeorge Elliot one of tho greatest; Mrs. Browning a marvelous poet; Harriet Murtineuu a wonderful woman, and Ouida is probably tho greatest living writer, man or woman.

That s what thoy M do uow-a-days. fcdf A WilHnm« Threaten* to nemove ill* Track—Some evidences of the BB« lllood Stirred Up. iNpEPEWbENcE, Iowa, Oct. 30.—The controversy over the action of three or four of our prominent church people in swearing out an information agnlns the wheel of fortune which Mr. Wil Hams permitted to run nt Rush Park pursuant to an agreement with its operators, and the serving of the warranl by Sheriff Iliff is developing into many-cornered fight and resulting in much hard feeling between the gooc citizens of Independence. Sheriff Illff stands between the two fires of those who are roasting him for permitting gambling and beef sell ing here in August, and those who hold him responsible for the seizure of the fortune wheel at the October meeting CJ. W. Williams is very indignant am mortified at the course pursued by those who swore out the information. Dr Hill, one of the number who swore ou the complaint, is. receiving the atten tion of some of Williams' friends, who .consider the action unnecessary and un grateful on his part. They claim thai Dr. Hill has borrowed breaking carts horse boots, toe weights and other paraphernalia of the turf from Mr Williams repeatedly, for his own pri vate use in breaking and training colts And that at the time of swearing ou the warrant Dr. Hill had several such articles of borrowed horso equipage And further that Dr. Hill had been in the habit of calling upon Mr. Williams for any desired number of passes to the races, which'he might desire for him self, friends, fellow officers and distin guished visitors, which were freely given by Williams. On the other hand the friends of Hit assert that Williams has had many favors through Dr. Hill as superintendent of the hospital. That the state purchased a roller, for which it had no present use, and which was in fact purchased at the time to accommodate Mr. Williams, and which is now stored away on the hospital grounds, never having been .used except on the kite-shapec track. And also that the hospital engineer, acting under the direction of the superintendent, surveyed out the famous kite-shaped track, which services were freely donated to Mr. Williams. . In the course of the mud throwing it has been asserted that this Dr. Hill is a silent partner with W. E Rosemond, who keeps a clothing store in this city and is also the resident trustee, and that official influence is used to induce the employes to trade ai Rosemond's store. Williams caused & notice to be servec on the hospital trustees to remove the water mains which he had permittee them to have laid through his land to save distance, and also to remove from Rush Park a small-amphitheatre which he had permitted to be erected for the accommodation of the hospital em- ployes and patients. It is understood that the state claims Williams' permit to run the water mains through his land is binding, and a law suit is likely to occur. Geo. Woodruff, another who signed the joint complaint against the unfortunate wheel, is being roasted for inconsistency, he being agent for a building which he rented in August to McDonald of Minneapolis for purposes of gambling, and upon discovering that McDonald had added beer selling to his business, demanded an additional $25 for the use of said building. Mr. Williams is very popular with the masses of our citizens who know he has grefitly benefitted this vicinity in a business sense. Many feared that the controversy would end-in his leaving Independence. But we believe that the fictions of Mr. Williams as well as those of all concerned in the matter have been hasty, that Independence is Mr. Williams' homo, whore he is fully appreciated, and that no consideration would induce him to live " elsewhere, and that when all the participants have had time to soberly reflect as to the proper course to pursue, peace will again be restored. A Kcllc of Knrly Days. The Emmotsburg Reporter gives a sketch of the cannon which the democrats had over to help celebrate Gov. Boies' meeting, and says: "At the time of the historical Spirit Lake massacre, in 1857, a company of the state troops went from Fort Dodge t/o the rescue of the settlers and took with them this relic of the Mexican war. It was in the winter, the snow was very deep and the gun was mounted upon a sled. The Indians heard of its. coming when many miles away, and itled in great precipitation, leaving only the sad havoc of their hellish deeds. II this old gun had been there 24 hours sooner, many valuable lives might have been saved. On the return trip, the heroic soldiers made their way back as best they could through the storms and snow and some of them never reached their homes, but perished on the way. Somo fifteen years later two skeletons were found in a deep ravine, about five miles west of Erametsburg, and beside them lay the old gun. It was brought in, cleaned from the rust in which it was imbedded and carefully preserved, and a few years later some darn fool, when remounting it, chiseled "Spencer, Iowa, 1880," into its venerable breech, which may have had a tendency to .detract from its historic interest as a relic. But there are one or two old Mexican veterans still living in the county who -could bo induced, under proper circumstances, to hide their modesty and substantiate the facts. It is even assorted by some that this is the' sumo gun which Lieut. Grant hoisted into a church steeple in the City of Mexico and thus laid the foundation for his subsequent world-wido and imperishable fame. Yea, verily I It is a great gun." (Jood Words for AVlilttemore. The Corwith Crescent says that " while in Whitteraoro, Monday, we were particularly attracted by the scenes at their creamery. They use a separator, and there was a long string of teams waiting up to 9:80 to deliver their milk. They were mostly driven by women and boys, and the wagons contained from one to a dozen cans of milk. The door was blocked so with teams that we did not attempt to enter. The farmers say they like the system. Whitteinore is building a neat Wtte Baptist church and many other tmtm ings. She has also commenced the arrangements to convert a haypress establishment into a tow mill. Whittemore rivals Corwith in the hay busi ness." STORMY JORDAN'S CAREER. The Chicago >rews lleporter Tells of lottra's Most SToted Saloon Keeper- "tlie Kond to Hell." This man Jordan has had a career. His saloon is a veritable gilded palace and a Mecca for the thirsty law violators of Ottumwa. It is on one of the principal streets and is furnished in solid marble and mahogany, and the bar alone is said to be worth $10,000. Over the saloon is a gambling hall, where the tough and disreputable gather to do the devil's meanest work on earth. In former times Jordan boldly labeled his saloon, "The Road to Hell." Now it is "The Corn Exchange." but judging from the way the procession who went their way through Its portals, the change in name has no' changed the destination of the victims. Kinsey Jordan—for that is his Christian name—has been one of the most persistent violators of the prohibitorj lawi • He has denounced it as an infamous enactment, and cursed those who placed it on the statute books. After years of violation the law was at last superior to the defiance of this one man. He was arrested, tried, and convicted. Its penalties were visited upon him with deserving severity. He, with his 250 pounds of avoirdupois, waa allowed to languish in jail. This all happened while Mr. Larrabeo was governor. Jordan's friends wanted to intercede foi him, but he informed them that ho would rather rot in jail than repent 01 make any promises. But a few weeks of daylight through prison bars satis fied him, Jordan went to Nebraska s but he was ill at ease. He longed for the old saloon in Ottumwa. He wanted to direct more weary travelers to " the rood to hell." He hovered along the borders of the state.' When Gov. Boies was elected, " Stormy" was one of the first men to recross the dividing lane between Iowa and Nebraska. The saloon was in the saddle again. The original package decision made him bold, and he opened his saloon in princely style. While others dealt strictly in packages, "Stormy" pullec the corks and sold drinks by the glass Then Gov. Boies revoked the Larrabee suspension, but that has not disturbed " Stormy," and during the coal palace he has reaped a rich harvest. WEATHER STATISTICS. When Frosts Have Come—Temperature— Kninfull— Clear and Cloudy Weather. In the annual weather report for Iowa the dates are given for first frosts in the fall since 1878. By averaging them the reader can decide what are the chances for every year. In 1878 the first frost was Sept. 10, and they follow for each year in order, Sept. 8, Sept, 9, Oct. 18, Sept, 23, Sept. 9, Oct. 9, Oct. 5, Sept. 17, Oct. 11, Sept. 13, Sept, 16, Sept. 13. The last frost in the spring in 1879 was April 28, and frost quit on each succeeding year on the following dates Apr. 30, Apr. 16, March 30, May 22 May 2, May 2, May 10, May 16, June 2 June 2, May 31, May 16. The highest temperature during the summer of 1878 was 94 degrees, and the hot day of each year following stood 95, 86, 103, 92, 97, 95, 100, 104, 101, 99 93, 101. The coldest day in 1878 was 1( degrees below zero and the cold days till 1890 were all below zero as follows: 21, 17, 19, 17, 26, 30, 20, 24,' 24 27, 13, 18. In 1879 there were 130 clear days, and the number for each succeeding year was: 145, 90, 79, 96, 94,94, 99,148, 146, 179, 202. The number of fair days in 1879 was 155, and for other years as follows 137, 153, 154, 147, 148, 157, 151, 139, 115, 85, 89. The number of days having .01 of an inch of rainfall or more were 106 in 1879 and as follows for years after: 98,Dl57, 131, 141, 145, 125, 117 102, 84, 103. The largest single rain fall during the whole period was on June 24, 1879, when 4,8 inches fell. _'From these figures a pretty fair estimate of our average weather can be formed. HOMES POR ORPHAN CHILDREN, Fifteen Xew York Waifs Got Good Places Among KosButh Farmers. The New York orphans, in charge of E. Trott, arrived Friday morning to the number of fifteen and were soon in the court room being inspected by the numerous applicants. Fully five peopl_ wanted a youngster when one was to be had, and with the assistance of the local committee the party were soon disposed of. The children were all bright, likely boys and girls, and it now seems that all have secured good homes Some of them certainly are fortunate^ Mr. Trott was well pleased with his success, and says he will bring another company in the spring if good homes can be found for them. Following are the names of those securing children and also the names of the orphans: August Brown took H. R. Everding age 13 years. P. Burlingame took W. B. Kennoy age 17.
