The routine reports of the annual mossago by the president take so much space that they discourage the average reader from giving any attention at all to the document, But no one who has nny Interest In the political issues before the people now, or to be before them next year, will fall to read President Harrison's report on reciprocity, the tariff, tho silver dollar, civil service reform, and gerrymandering, It Is stated In plain terms, Is easily undor- etood, and If it is not a complete vindication of tho whole policy of the republican parly since Hlalno succeeded In modifying tho tariff bill then such a vindication cannot bo made, It is a document which commands rcHpoct for its candor, its patriotic spirit, and its vigorous handling of some of tho evils •which threaten in national'politics. It furthcrconllrmstholmpresslon made by President Harrison on his western and southern trip, that for throe years tho white house has boon occupied by a man of more than common ability, Independence, and zeal in the public sorvlco. No message was over greeted with heartier approval by tho press, In this country tho praise is not confined to party supporters. Tho Independent Public Lodger of Philuholphlu says: " President Harrison's message is like tho man—frank, plain, and businesslike, and admirable In expression." And oven the Now York Times says: "Its tono is dignified, its arrangement cloar and business-like, most of its recommendations arc conservative and sensible and some of thorn timely iind sound." Among party papers tho Now York Tribune says: "One characteristic of ProsldontHarriHon'sannual message which most Impresses every candid roador Is its absolute froodorn from partisanship or prejudice." 'The Pross adds: "The message is a thoroughly American document, In ovory lino of which tho tho spirit.of patriotic doslro for tho public weal is so clearly ox- pressed that 'ho who runs may road,' Tho Minneapolis Tribune says: " President Harrison's mossago is one of tho ablest state papers in tho annals of tho American government;, and tho ablest presidential message of rocont years." The Plonoor Pressuayu: ''Tho distinguishing characteristic of tho mossago is its intense practicality. Its earnestness is that of a man of sincere palriot- , ism. It is tho delivery of a man who has tho Interest of his country at heart, and tho whole tono of it is that of a strictly buslnoss-llko regard for tho laws and their execution." Tho Chicago Tribune concludes: "Tho mos- sago as a whole is plain, practical, and businoss-llko, and covers tho whole Jlold of public interests." Tho comments of tho English papers are as favorable us they over aro to anything American, Tho Post says: " Tho absence of signs of bluster toward foreign nations can bo noticed with satisfaction." Tho Daily Nows says: "Tho president's mossago loaves nothing to ho desired oithor in tono or temper." Tho Standard says: "It must bo admitted that tho figures ho quotes, though they do not justify tho sanguino hopes of tho authors of tho McKlnloy tariff law, aro sullloiont to cause some surprises to adverse critics both homo and abroad." In like tono St. James Gazette says: " Tho calculations of tho supporters of tho McKlnloy bill aro working out much bettor than anyone in England had reason to ox- poot." scribers with this course will insure its continuance the coming year, and we shall Aim to give as much space to matters of general Interest as possible. We hope also to have occasion from time to time to note the growth and prospects of the other thriving towns in the county as fully as we have those of Bancroft. In sending out this holiday issue copies will fall into the hands of many who are not subscribers. If any such should feel that they would be benefit- ted by regular visits of the paper during 1892, they will have no difficulty in securing them at $1.60 a year by notifying us or appearing iu person. We can occomodate all who come. In conclusion we wish to all a" Merry Christmas" and a " Happy New Year." A 8T,AN«EU Al'OLOalZlSD FOH. During the campaign last fall State Secretary McFarland made a speech at Armstrong Grove. Peter Burt wrote a report of tho meeting to the Courier and devoted most of his space to charging Mr. McParland with intoxication and other misdemeanors. In tho last Issue of tho Courier ho has another letter published as follows; AIIMSTKONO OKOVB, Doc. 4.—Editor Courier—Dour Sir: I flnd on Investigation that I wns misinformed as to C. B. Matthews having at nny tlmo carried homo Mr. McFarlnnd in a beastly state of intoxication. I am vory reliably Informed that it wiis u malicious Blunder on tho reputation of our worthy state secretary, and bog that you will so Inform your readers through the columns of your papor and oblige, yours vory respectfully. PBTKU H. BUIIT. Tho Courier states that this second letter saves a $20,000 llbol suit. Whether that Is so or not this lottor shows tho folly and indecency of improbable charges against reputable men In political campaigns. Wo know nothing of Potor H. Burt. But whatever his good reputation otherwise, his sagacity, judgment, and fairness aro all impugned by his foolish attack on Mr. McFarhind. His sorry confession ought to provo a sufficient warning to all who think Hbols on public men help political parties or benefit tho community. ===—-—--__. Thoro Is something about Sockloss Simpson to bo admired. Tho following report of how ho got his sent In tho congressional hull IB characteristic: "'Mr. Simpson I' rpiirod Mr. Reeves, and tho gentleman from Kansas moved down tho aisle. Ho was la no hurry, although few desirable seats were loft. Jerry sauntered around and flnally came up to one of tho best seats in the hull, right in tho king row. At tho desk sat a youth, supposedly placed there to reserve it for some one whoso name had boon drawn. Jerry looked at the youth a minute and asked: ' IB that seat reserved?' " Yes,' was llio reply. ' Show me tho mini's card,' said Jerry, The boy gave out u congressman's nnino, whereupon Jerry said: 1 I'm from Kansas, and such yarns as that don't go out there. That name hasn't been drawn yet, and you know it and I know it. You will have to got out.' Thereupon Jerry inserted tho first pair of lingers on his right hand between the young man's collar and bare nock, and lifted him gently but firmly into space. Then Jerry sat down and hold tho fort." Tho Carroll Herald calls our attention to tho fact that Story is not in tho Tenth district. It used to bo, and tho Tenth is so bit' wo can't keep track of all tho counties on tho south boundary. Senator Funk roads tho lesson of tho hour and " to whom it may concern" addresses tho following: "Notice is hereby given that if a man with a brown leather grip full of dynamite enters our palatial quarters and In this august presence makes demand for a little matter of twelve hundred thousand dollars ho will bo promptly accommodated, ovon if wo have to wear our summer clothes all winter. Russoll Sago's experience teaches us that It is not wise to trifle with such a situation," tially destroyed, rendering: 440,000 people homeles*. Thi« number 1« equal to a quarter of the population of Iowa. There are evidently worse evil* which could befall us than liquor laws and leases oh corn. Tho Carroll Herald nnmes S. M. Clarke for governor next time. It 8ays truly that ho " would carry the war Into Africa." We don't know how he would enjoy executive duties, but he would make a campaign that would be remembered. A democratic conference has been held at DDS Moines lately of which the hot results were a double division of Sentiment as to liquor legislation. Gov. Boies and Col. Clarke urged high license and local option. Senators Schmidt and Dodge said they could under no circumstances support high license. And still a third wing favored letting prohibition alone, thinking they could carry more elections by not repealing the law. dences and business places and improvements altogether amount to over $32,000......Chas. Pendleton of Hebron had a Valuable horse break its leg on Sunday, or at least the leg was broken. It may have been kicked by another horse. It had to be killed.

Tho special feature is a brief account of tho rapid growth and bright prospects of our northern neighbor, Bancroft, while of scarcely secondary importance are tho forty odd columnsof display advertisements representing tho business men of tho two towns. As this is considerably tho largest paper over issued in the county, the publishers fool a pardonable pride in it. They also fool a prldo in tho number of business firms represented in its columns. Tho good will which has always been extended to this office on all sides has boon u groat source of encouragement, and is again demonstrated. Our appreciation,-wo hope, is shown in tho display this issuo allows us to make of tho resources wo have provided for getting out a stylish and first-class paper for Kossuth. Wo do not boast in saying that but tow country offices in Iowa aro bettor equipped. The space'givon to Bancroft is in pursuance of a policy wo luvvo gradually adopted of devoting our columns from week to week to tho general news rather than to neighborhood gossip and of occasionally giving our neighboring towns a notice, which wo boliovo will ho worth more to thorn than a weekly chronicling of personal movements. Tho evident satisfaction of our sub- Tho Bancroft Register has an opinion about next full's congressional fight: "Tho Algona Courier sooms to take up tho light of tho disgruntled republicans at Algonu against Congressman Dollivor and imagines a good many candidates for tho same office. M. D, O'Connell of Fort Dodge will not bo a candidate against Mr. Dollivor under any consideration, and Major Holmes of Booue will not bo in tho race. Judge OBIT has too much promise of a place on the supremo bench to outer a congressional flght and us for Captain Houd, why, Dollivor is the man who will Head him oft." IN THIS NEIGEBOBHOOD. Humboldt is putting in a $0,000 creamery, Tho Northern Iowa Horticultural society mot at Eagle Grove yesterday. Emmotsburg parties are again begin- ning'to agitato tho electric light question. Hancock Signal: Henry Straw, tho jeweler, spent Sunday at Algona with relatives. Alex. Younie of West Bond has rented his farm for §700 cash rent, and will live in West Bond next year. Humboldt Blade: Arthur Tellier of Algona, who was eleotod county surveyor of Kossuth county this fall, was a visitor in town over Sunday. Tho northeast quarter of Iowa exported last year 48,900,367 pounds of butter as against 32,874,204 pounds for tho other throe quarters of the state. Spencer Reporter: Mrs. Johns of Algona visited over Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Higley Frank Co.- dy of Algona visited over Snnday with friends in Spencer. Livormoro got the Marshalltown orchestra for a club dance. Some of the boys thought that was pretty high- toned and kicked in the door while the danco was in progress. Fort Dodge Messenger: Fred. Groneman was down from Whittomore, Kossuth county, over Sunday. Ho is now engaged in tho drug business there, Tho fish commissioner arrested a man at Spirit Lake for violating tho fish law. He got throe days in juil. Wore it not that a member of tho legislature, who has not had a term's experience is never elected speaker, tho following suggestion of tho LuVoruo Nows of Mr. Smith would bo a good one. The Nows suys: "Uncle John would make a good presiding: officer in tho coming assembly. Indeed, wo think that to rnuke Mr. Smith speaker would bo to put the right man iu tho right place. His tall and commanding figure, and grave and stutesuiuuliko bearing, mark him as u man likuly to command the respect of any representative body of men, us u purltumcnturiuu ho possesses all tho qualifications necessary to a successful dls- churgo of all tho duties required." Tho Livormoro Gazette, which is one of tho best local papers in lowu, had a big advertising display lust wook. Tho Gazette is appreciated at homo. Those who got to thinking that political policies uro the only ills of life, should reflect on tho slguiflconce of tho figures which toll the result of tho late earthquake iu Japan.

Tho Andrews' Opera company, so well known here, was sued last week by the prima donna, Harriot Avery Strak'osch, for her salary, $805. Tho company is now playing in tho Lyceum theater, Minneapolis, Humboldt Independent: E. Tellier was in Humboldt last week. He attended tho camp fire of the G. A. R. post Friday evening, and enjoyed himself hugely. Ho is tho same irrepressible Tollior of old. An old man named Hilton found the renter of his farm at Livormoro in bed at 1 o'clock in tho afternoon and got mad. In tho ond he threw a hatchet at him and is now under bonds to tell the grand jury how It happened. Charlos City Intelligencer: At a re- cont examination in this county, says tho last issue of tho Teacher, the question "Who are the president's cabinet?" was answered by one person, Gov. Lurrubeeund Robert Lindon." It is not generally known that tho little town of Fonda, with about 1,000 inhabitants, is favored with a free delivery system, and it is the only town in Iowa so blessed. It sooms that Mr. Wtuuuwikor is experimenting this way with ono small town in each state Farmers Co-operative association is the name of a new corporation at Spirit Lako organized for the purpose of buying and soiling farm produce, stock, coal, lumber, farm machinery, etc. Tho capital stock is $10,000, and is owned by about 30 farmers, living in tho vicinity of Spirit Lake. Eluioro Post: A. A. Sifert of Lod- ytH-d was Iu town Saturday. He says ho has u spelling school every Friday night, and has adopted the plan used in the Elmore school of spelling down. It is surprising in looking around OBISP'S VtOTOBY. Democratic Comment on the Dcfnftt of Roger Q. Mill* for Speaker. Following are the sentiments of the New York and other democratic dailies on the defeat of Mills by Crisp. They indicate that the result means that Hill and Tammany have ousted Presi- cent Cleveland: Times: The election of Mr. Crisp by the coalition of the demagogy of Hill, the spoilsmongering of Tammany, the protectionism of Gorman and Brice, the fanatical free silver movement, and the old south must inevitably give pause to the men who have believed that the democratic party would be a fit Instrumentality for the accomplishment of tariff reform and for the clean and honest administration of tho government. World: Crisp's election represents the conviction of the majority that the ond aimed at by the party—namely the righteous revision and reduction of our tariff—is more surely to boattained through methods less radical. The choice is significant of tho dominance of a prudent spirit in the great democratic majority. Herald: The object of the contestants has not been to elect a fitting and well equipped chairman simply, but to push the claims of Mr. Cleveland or Mr. Hill in the coming presidential campaign. The fight was waged in the interest of a favorite' candidate who stood in the back ground, but who hopes to como to the front next year. Brooklyn Eagle: Crisp's election, if it at all changes the situation, will vary the proportion to be assigned to tariff reform in the general democratic procedure. It tends to shift the center of congressional leadership from those who would foreclose the presidential nomination to Grover Cleveland to those who would throw the honor open to all aspirants, among whom Mr. Cleveland would have to take his chances with tho rest. It recognizes Mr. Cleveland as a factor. It ceases to regard him as a fetich. Sun: This result is a triumph for tho conservative forces in the democracy and a kick at the mugwumps. It Is a promise of a safe and moderate course on the part of the democratic majority in the house. It makes brighter the prospect of electing a democratic president. The Boston Herald, the Cleveland paper of New England, says: We should feel very sorry to think that in this selection the party has made an unworthy choice, but certatnly it has not put its best foot forward. Logically, ' Mr. Mills should have been the demo erotic nominee. In his advocacy of reduction of taxes and his opposition t public extravagance and subsidy hunt ing Mr. Mills stands for all that is bes and soundest and most popular in th principles of his party. The Chicago Herald says: Not onl the active but the exceedingly zealou support of men who are known to b undemocratic with respect to the tarii —in fact, extreme protectionists, sue at Mr. Dana of the New York Sun. The St. Louis Republic says: Th contest in tho caucus wns more pro longed and obstinate than wasexpectec and it presented many interesting feal urcs. None was more interesting, how ever, or more suggestive than Senato Gorman in the speaker's room directing and encouraging tho protectionist rail on the democratic party. He wa Crisp's chief lieutenant in direct com mand of the. coalition forces. The Baltimore American says: I was a square flght between Cleveland and free trade on the one side and men of moderate views in the democrat^ party, led by Senator Gorman, on the other. Cleveland lost and his poll tical prestige is probably gone, while Senator Gorman won and will dictate the nominee of tho party next year, if indeed, he does not become the stand ard bearer himself, which at presen appears to depend entirely upon his in clinations. WHERE JUSTICE IS DONE, The Bnrt Bigramy Case Occupied the Boards Most of tast Week In the District Court* Hubbard and Rantzow Oet a Change of Forum and Will Be Tried in Emmet County. STATE GEOLOGICAL SURVEY, KosButh's Geologist, William Ward Writes to the State Register Concerning It. GARNER, Dec. 10.—Editor Register The geological and natural history survey of Iowa should engage the attention of our legislature next winter. Iseeyoui town how mucli building has been done in Elmoro the past year. Tho resi- Britt correspondent never fails to keep this question to the front. This is laudable. He even mentions the writer of this as a suitable person to take charge of it. This is not laudable. He should not mix his enthusiasm and love for geology with his friendship for any person. When the writer came to Kossuth county, Prof. White had just been ordered to produce his report. From his two or three years work in the field 'he was ordered to make a report. This he did in!870. This ended a work in Iowa that is of great value, as meager as it is. Now the point I wish to make is: Iowa discontinued this kind of research before it was fairly under way. We do not forget the labors of Whitney on the lead mines, nor that of Prof. James Hall on the eastern half of the state- all of great value—hut in 1870 when Iowa quit the field, Minnesota on our north entered it, and in 1872 appointed Prof. N. A. Winchell state geologist, and appropriated $1,000 per year to carry on the work. This small amount was doubled by the next legislature and the Salt Spring lands of the state were placed in tho hands of the regents of the state university. Prof. Winchell took hold of the great work and one half of his time was given to field work and the other to his classes in the university, until 1878, when Warsaw Upham was appointed on the survey. These two geologists have worked in the field of Minnesota and neighboring territory almost ever since, and the two final reports of the geological and natural history survey will always be monuments to the industry and zeal of these men. Iowa has her Calls, her Calvins and her Todds. Why can Iowa not, after more than two decades of abandonment, take up this work again and finish it? Let others speak. WILLIAM WARD. The time of the court lost week was taken up almost wholly with two or three cases, the bigamy case from Burt being of chief interest and most bitterly contested. The trial occupied all of Wednesday nnd Thursday, and the jury Friday morning were dismissed because they were unable to agree on a verdict. The facts aa brought out by the evidence seemed to show that Beverly Watkins, who has been in and about Burt for some time, and Miss Hodgson, a young lady of good standing there, eloped and were married at Emmetsburg. After living together five days as man and wife, Watkins was arrested on the charge of having another wife in Illinois. The prosecution of the case was conducted by W. B. Quarton representing Mr. Hodgson and by the county attorney. They introduced a marriage license and a certificate of marriage in Illinois between Watkins and Lena Hill, and showed that Watkins had secured no divorce. Geo. E, Clarke conducted the defense and introduced another Illinois certificate of marriage which showed that this Lena Hill had been married earlier to a man named Berge. He also had a witness, Harry Richardson, who swore to knowing Lena Hill, and that she was in fact Serge's wife when she married Watkins. If she was Berge's wife, she could not legally marry Watkins, and hence his former marriage was void, and his marriage to Miss Hodgson legal. Tho whole case turned on the question of the identity of Lena Hill, her name appearing in one place Clara L. Hill, in another Clara Lena Hill, and in another Lena Hill. The value of Richardson's evidence was also an important item. The jury could not agree and the case will go over to the next term. Tho story of the matter as told by Watkins is that Lena Hill was a loose character, and ho and his companions were drunk when he was married to her. He did not know what he was about, and never staid with her, and was advised by a county attorney that the marriage .was not legal. The facts will doubtless bo brought out more fully at the next trial. DANIELS DISMISSED. ' In the criminal case against Ernest Daniels, who was held for selling mortgaged property, it was discovered that the alleged crime was committed more than three years before the indictment was found, and the case was dropped. THE RANTZOW-HUBBARD CASE. Note was made last week of the change of venue allowed by tho court m this case. The attorneys for the defendants made affidavit of objections to every county but Palo Alto, and wanted to go there because it is convenient. The county attorney objected to Palo Alto because the docket is usually large there, and witnesses might be held several days at big expense to Kossuth. The court then decided on Emmet, as it has a small docket. The court opens Jan. 18, next, and tho case will come on at that time. NEW CITIZENS. Lars Johnson of Sweden, and Jacob Hans of Germany are now Americans. Minors papers were granted to Ernest Marcks of Germany and Lars Ohnsted of Norway. CIVIL CASES. A long and dry case involving book accounts was tried Friday, Saturday and Monday, J. J. Wilson plaintiff and A. D. Clarke defendant. There was a claim of $161 for lumber, etc., and a counter claim of $300 for rent <jf vacant lots, besides a claim of settlement and a receipt in full. Geo. E. Clarke repre- also justice of the peace, and he seems to never grow weary in putting' to right the wrong stories and imp: sions that go out about him and his ficial doings. He knows just what t law Is whenever he tackles a case or point in discussion, and takes as much satisfaction in reading his articles in the papers as anyone we know of. The name of Peter J. Walker will soon be a household word all over the county. SCHOOL ON ITS FEET, The Opening: of the tvlnter Teritt Insures Success— iiipgef Attendance Than Expected.— Kvery Neighboring County Represented. The varied ups and downs of the normal school havo made even its friends cautious about predictions, but the present term's attendance Indicates that under the present management it- is rapidly growing in favor. Monday 90 students were enrolled, and assurances of 100 this week, and 126 after the holidays, mean that the high water mark has been reached. Considering that two terms ago tho attendance was next to nothing, the rapid rebuilding in public favor gives a vory hopeful outlook for the future. The building is now filled and every recitation room in use. Prof. Chaffee has classes in mathematics and didactics, Miss Adams classes in Latin and history, Miss Chaffee in English and German, Prof. C. E. Carlton takes charge of the business course, which includes all the work of commercial college?, and Miss Randall gives private lessons in vocal and instrumental music, and trains thei school in chorus singing. Chas. Cohen- * our gives instructions in short-hand, ; and Prof. Cbaffee's brother in typ«P' writing. This corps of teachers is ample in numbers for a big school, and is composed of very competent instructors who have rapidly established themselves since coming to Algona. After January 4 a series of evening classes will begin work in German, book-keeping, penmanship, and typewriting. The classes will meet three evenings in the week at the reading room, which has been secured. These classes have been organized to accom- • modato people in town, and a good attendance is assured. Full notice of their organization will be published later. The normal school is on its feet, and has only the brightest prospects for the future. . sented Mr. Wilson, and W. B. Quarton, Mr. Clarke.
