For tho fli-Hl, tlrno it lookn aa though Cleveland's Inlluonco wua waning, and that tho democrats will ovado tho tariff and light on silver un& othor IHHIICH. an awful agency of Intimidation or destruction. Hand In hand with this uprising of anarchy comes the disgrace of the great name of Weld, through the rascality of the trusted son of Cyrus W., "who laid the cable." No assets can fee found while $3,000,000 of llaWlities ar* piled up. Like Grant, Field's last day« are clouded in financial ruin and family disgrace. Thus it seems that the outbreak of crime is confined to no class, and that in high places as well as low rascality and dishonesty are found. In fact it seems true that anarchy is about as prevalent at one extreme of tho social order as at the other. The details of life among the English aristocracy have again boon published In a divorce suit against tho worthless descendant of the great Lord John IluBsoll, and like the late expose of the true character of tho prince of Wales, they show a lack of character, or dignity, or respect for tho decencies of life, not to be outdone among the red flag visitors at Grief's hall in Chicago. A great deal of horror is excited among all chwuoB at the criminal outbreaks of the Ignorant and vicious poor. And yet In view of the Field case, and some of tho recent bank failures In this country, It IB perhaps not surprising that the Ignorant imd needy should decide that crime Is both profitable and fashionable. a.i.m i i irniiinaaiMa^a AMOKA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, $ mi lose it in the crowd at ft horse MM*, «s- pedally if he bet on the wrong fcowe.

Over In Wisconsin at the last congressional election a man by the name of Babbitt was nominated in the first district, and to the surprise of everybody, was elected. He attended all the political meetings in his district and his entire speech was as follows: 'If you want a man to go to Washington and vote for low taxes, send me. If you want a man to vote for high tuxes, send the other fellow.' The district was 8,000 republican but Babbitt was elected. The republican convention must have had the success of Babbitt In mind when it nominated Wheeler at Cedar Koplds.

J The following dispatch in the Cedar Rapids Republican explains itself: WIST BEND, Dec. 5.—This city is considerably stirred up over the discovery of the disappearance of T. M. Daniels, manager of the West Bend Lumber company, and cashier of the Exchange National bank. The last seen of him was last Tuesday night, and it is supposed he is now sojourning in Canada. Daniels has lived here about two years, and his methods were to organize companies and sell stock in shares of $100 each. He then borrowed money to declare a dividend, the first of which was 25 per cent. This gave his company a great boom and stock sold at an advance. He then plucked up courage and started a bank and by renewed energy secured the confidence of the community and finally secured a partner, who took $5,000 worth of bank stock. This partner was Slye of Independence. Business continued to flourish until Wednesday morning, when Slye was surprised to find the outer doors of the safe unlocked, and then an investigation was instituted, when it was discovered that Daniels was missing. It is not definitely known how much money Daniels took with him, but it is supposed to be $12,000 or $15,000. Daniels has been traced to Emmetsburg, where he left three children with their grandmother, borrowed $300 from his uncle, and vanished out of sight. More of the Details. In a letter from Emmetsburg, yesterday, about the affair, the following facts are stated for the readers' of THE UPPER DES MOINES: "Pull particulars of the Daniels matter are not at hand, as he is not in correspondence with his friends just now, and as he also has both keys to the inner doors of the bank safe with him. What appear to be the most reliable estimates seem to indicate that he got away with some 85,000 or $6,000 He organized the West Bond Lumber company in the fall of 1889, and in connection has at times bought hay, grain, and hogs. All along he was regarded by most people as being tricky and unsafe.- Last fall he made it appear that the lumber yard had been prosperous and the company declared a 2o per cent, dividend. On account of this dividend it is claimed that friends of Mr Slye, his partner in the bank, induced that gentleman to put some money into the 1 lumber company, and to furnish the capital used in the bank. The annual meeting of the lumber company was to occur soon and Daniels, fearing he would be ousted, has been making desperate efforts to absolutely control a majority of the stock, but couldn't make it. It now turns out that for a short time back he has been making unusual ef- rorts to collect on account of the lumber company—would accept almost any cash he could get. How much he did get is as yet unknown, but whatever it was he has no doubt taken it with him—since his departure a bundle of the banks drafts drawn to pay eastern bills for the company, and that were supposed to have been sent off, have been found pigeon-holed in Mr, Daniels' . - pigeon _ _ desk. Tuesday before Daniels left he"made excuse that ho had changed clothes and had leu his key to the inner doors of the bank safe, and on this pretext got the other key fronl Mr. Slye. There is a story that he sold nis stock in the lumber company while he was on his way to John J. Watson cashier of the First National bank of Em- motsburg, for $1,500 in cash and some balance in notes. It is not imagined that the bank was carrying a very heavy line of deposits, as Daniels has always been largely distrusted, though we hear that a Mr Campbell claims to have some $000 in Daniels is a son of tho M. D. Daniels, who earlier '70s. Has boon married, los" his wire during the past summer. Has three children, one of them born shortly before tho mother's death. Those he has apparently abandoned—bringing them to their grandparents at Emmotsburg the night be- The loss will fall heavily on Mr. Slye week. The case Involves 160 acres of land, tree claim in Kossuth county. The question Is whether the contestee, Mr. Neff, has the requisite number of" trees on the claim. The evidence : m very voluminous, consisting of 300 ty'pe\ written pages. Col. S. S. Sessions' of\ Algona and A. C. Dudley of Des Moiaes appe'ar for Brougher, and F.. M. Taylor of Algona and Judge Bishop for Neff. The case was continued jmtii January 19 before the register and receiver of the Des Moines laud office.' 1 HtJMBOtJ)T GETS THE MEETHf& The town Stock Breeders' and. Oth* ei- Associations ^ViU jieet at That Place Next Yenr-Enterpl-lse WlnSi No action having been taken by the« citizens of Algona or the county to secure the annual stock breeders' meeting which was lost a year ago on a tie vote, a few consulted and persuaded J. W. Wadswortb to attend the meeting at Waterloo and urge Algona as a location for next year. He arrived on the ground and had everything going "merry us a marriage bell," when Humboldt came down with a swoop and showed what u little enterprise will do. Col. Smart, S. H. Taft, Al. Adams, Farmer Coilen and others all made speeches to the committee, maps had been prepared, resolutions were presented which had been adopted by the board of supervisors urging the stock breeders to come, and also resolutions from the city council. The result was that on a vote of six to four they beat us again. Mr. Wads worth made a liberal offer for Algona, all the chances, but the number'of smooth talkers from "down the creek" were too many for him. This location of the meeting at Humboldt will shut us out for several years, as the gather- < ing will not come twice in succession to the same territory. This outcome shows that Humboldt, like all our neighbors, is awake and is after everything that will be of benefit to the county. It sbows also that the people co-operate to accomplish results, and take steps in time. Algona should not have lost this meeting. The Waterloo meeting was well attended and the discussions were of great value. Mr. Wadsworth returned 1 Friday morning.

( PHYSICAL OULTUBE IN SEATTLE. Miss Anna Goodrell of Dos Molnos and Her Work. The State Register hasaclippingfrom the Seattle Post-Intelligencer about physical culture in the public schools. As the teacher, Miss Goodrell, was at our county institutes for- two years, many will be interested in the report from her present location. " The work of physical training is now getting well •under way in the public schools, and both teachers and pupils are becoming much interested in it. The special teacher, Miss Anna Goodrell, by devot- rng all her time to it, can only give a twenty-minute lesson once every two weeks in each room. But Miss Good- roll directs the work which is carried on by the regular teachers during the rntorvals between her visits. The exercises are taken up for five minutes each morning and each afternoon in every school room in " time spent in this way teachers and pupils alike, for ft "affords an opportunity for movement and the expression of that restlessness which everyone feels after sitting still for an hour- or two. Most adul;s can recall how they used to fidget about in their seats and stretch and yawn, feeling as if the morning or afternoon never would come to an end. The exercises relieve thrs oppression and enable the boys and grrls to return to their books with fresh zeal. The classes are now becoming well drilled, and go through the motions like clockwork. Miss Goodrell, who serves as an excellent example of the fine figure and grace to be acquired by the practice, has succeeded splendidly as a teacher, and has im P^ 1>te( i much of her own enthusiasm to the scholars."
