Tomorrow evening begins the fiftl session of the Upper Des Moines Edi torlal association, and Algona'wiUfor day and a half harbor the representa tives of the dignified, honored, and im portant newspaper calling. If It weri not that the time of the association will be largely occupied in recounting the triumphs of the press, its dutie and responsibilities, and in magnifying its office, we should feel inclined to di late on the growth of journalism in northern Iowa, and the possibilitie which He before such an association a wo have now organized. But before Saturday tho people will bo full of th' subject, and it is sufficient to extend a hearty welcome merely. Algona wil bo pleased to see every editor in north ern Iowa present. She will put on he: best bib and tucker, and attempt, thi weather permitting, to make tho visi enjoyable. It cannot but be valuable for out of the discussions and debates o the 'meetings already hold tho editors have'proilted in a material way. It possible to make of the Upper Des Moines association a permanent institu tiori, whose influence for good to th( newspaper fraternity cannot be meas ured, and towards this end it is our hope that the Algona meeting will be a decided step. We express tho desire of every citizen when wo assure our visitors that they are welcome, anc that their visit will be as enjoyable to us as we can possibly make it for them OOV. HOIKS' INAUGURAL. •The second inauguration of Gov. Boies was attended last Wednesday with a demonstration worthy of the occasion at Des Moines, and tho governor appreciating that he was addressing a larger audience than his Iowa constituents, rose to the level of real statesmanship in his inaugural address, as he had before in his annual message. The two documents are able, dignified, 'candid, and in most particulars wise. 'Many of the recommendations are timely, and should be acted upon at once. All are dispassionate, almost wholly •free from partisanship, and delivered in a tone befitting a governor of so groat a state. However much people may disagree with him on tho temperance question, which is the only partisan discussion he undertakes, no one can complain of tho spirit or temper of his remarks. He has conducted himself throughout in a manner creditable to himself, and this will be a matter of congratulation to the state, because it marks a great change from his course on the stump and in his New York address. Gov. Boies congratulating Iowa on her undoubted prosperity is a different man from Gov. Boies trying to prove that all farm products have been raised at a loss for a series of years, and that Vermont has increased in wealth 85 per cent while Iowa has increased less than two. Before the legislature he proves himself a man of many wise and liberal views. As partisan orator ho showed the pettifogging arts of the jury lawyer. As tho former stage has succeeded the latter it is to be hoped that it is a permanent change, and that hereafter in so far as he stands before the public it will bo in the guise of statesman and not of the commonly accepted typo of stump speaker. THE CLIFF EPISODIC. Lust week an account was given of how Mr. Cliff was chosen chief clerk of tho senate at Des Moines by the republicans. He had 24 votes, Bugle's man one vote, the democrats not voting. The chairman counted tho democrats present, making a quorum, and decided that Cliff having a majority of the votes cast was elected. The democrats filed a protest, and as soon as Bestow was inaugurated moved to declare the office of chief clerk vacant. The republicans resisted on the ground that an officer once duly elected cannot be ousted from office by a motion. On a tie vote tho chair decided with tho democrats, Mr. Parsons was then named for chief clerk, and tho 'republicans, saying that legally there was no vacancy, refused to vote. Parsons received 24 votes, all that were cast. And hero the amusing scene began. The democrats had ousted Cliff because he did not have a majority of the senate —20 votes. They had also protested because Mr. Poyneer had counted them present to make a quorum. And now here was Parsons with only 24 votes, and no quorum under the old rule. After a hurried consultation Mr. Bestow had the roll called of members present and counted a quorum, and declared Mr. Parsons elected, adopting the Reed rule and electing a clerk on the same vote Cliff was elected on. The whole incident is trivial so far as the chief clerk is concerned. But it is instructive nevertheless. For if Parsons is legally elected, then Cliff was legally elected, and in any event the democrats are in an amusing situation. If they had not adopted the Reed rule they could never have had a quorum, for Engle sided with the rejnibiicans, and so they swallowed the pill and admitted that " Czar Reed" knew how to keep .business moving. '-This action only serves to show how quickly Heed's position has been accepted by the whole country, now that its merits are seen. The Cliff episode is an Interesting one in Iowa politics, and the legal question is still to be tested, whether a majority of the senate, or a majority of a quorum must elect officers. THE CHILIAN President Harrison's message to congress on the controversy with Chile was read Monday in both houses. He sends the correspondence thus far had, and recounts all the steps which have led up to the present strained relations. He finds that thus far Chile has produced no evidence to prove that the attack upon American sailors in the streets of Valparaiso was due to their misconduct. On the contrary everything goes to show that the American uniform ihey wore provoked tho assault. He has given Chile a choice between appologiztng for the outrage on our citizens and indemnifying them, and finally breaking off all diplomatic relations, which means war. In concluding President Harrison says: " It has been my desire In every way to cultivate friendly and intimate relations with nil governments of this hemisphere. We do not covet their territory: we desire their peace and prosperity; >ve look for no advantage in our relations with them, except increased exchanges of commerce upon the basis of mutual benefit; we regret every civil contest that disturbs their peace and paralyzes their development and are always ready to give our good offices for the restoration of peace. It must, however, be understood that this government, while exercising the utmost forbearance toward weaker powers, will extend its strong and adequate protection to its citizens, to its officers, and to its humblest sailors when made victims of wantonness and cruelty in resentment not of their personal misconduct but official acts of their government." . Speaking of the message Senator Allison says: "The president's message is a strong statement of facts and of international laws uul practice, from which a strong case is made against Chile. I assume that every step will be taken with deliberation in the matter. The president has done the right ihing in making certain demands upon Dhile, and sooner or later that government will have to comply with those demands." Butler. William Larrabeo is one of the three greatest men ever elected governor of Iowa, the other two being J. W. Grimes and Samuel J. Kirkwood. H« would make one of the best congressmen the state ever had. Dolliver has been lately interviewed and says: "Iowa has been a Blaine state 'or many years and is for him yet. The re- mblicans of that commonwealth fairly worship the brilliant statesman from Maine. An impression prevails, however, that the name of Blaine will not come before the Minneapolis convention and the republicans are almost universally in favor of President Garrison as a second choice. I think the ;owa delegation will be solid for Harrison next Juno. The present administration has been acceptable in every feature. The peo- >le of my state are prosperous and contented, and Iowa will give the largest republican majority at the polls next November hat she has given since her experience with irohibition and other local issues which have frequently taken her out of tho repub- ican column." Congressman Dolliver has several invitations to deliver addresses on Lincoln's lirthday, Feb. 12, Ho will probably go to Irooklyn, N. Y. Gov. Boies is to speak at Denver, Feb. on the tariff. His boom for the presidency is to begin there. Bro. Coyle of the Humboldt Blade has had a Vision: "We had intended to startle the patron's' 1 of the Blade with, an announcement of the largest subscription list of any paper in Humboldt county, but an angel of the Lord came to us in a dream and told us about a country editor who now wears a robe and a crown on high, and Wo repented and forsook our design. This 'editor died and on his arrival at the gate was confronted by St. Peter. 'Your name!' inquired the saint. 'John Doe,' answered the editor. 'Your business) 1 ' A country editor.' ' Your paper had the largest circulation of any paper in the county?,' queried the saint. 'No,' sadly but truthfully replied the editor, "it had tho smallest.' 'Open the gate,' shouted St, Peter, ' lot him enter and give him the best harp in heaven.'" Muscatine has secured a $500,000 beet sugar plant. A bonus of ?100,000 was raised, Russell Harrison don't like being president's son: " I am heartily sick of playing the role of president's son. I am willing to give some other fellow a chance. There is no fun in it and very little glory. As a matter of fact, I have found it much more difficult to earn a living since my father h#e been in the wriite house than ever before. I shall be glad if he does not run again." , A bill is in for Council Bluffs. a normal school at The State Register's new press and type are at last in working order. The improvement already is noticable, and when the stereotyping process is perfected a little, the Register will be as excellent typographically asjt is every other way. The Register steadily improves in all essentials of a good state paper. Senator Quay has won a verdict in a riminal libel suit against the Philadelphia 'ost. The numerous charges against him vero not sustained in court. Tho verdict vill serve to free him from some suspicion. LITEBABY NOTES. Professor Lanciani's paper on The Pageant at Rome in tho Year 17 B. C., has the foremost place in, the Atlantic Monthly for February. It is devoted to an account of the public games held in Rome 17 years before Christ, and instituted under the patronage of Augustus, the senate, and the college of the Quindecimviri. .Most important evidences of these games have been lately discovered in Rome; and these having come under Professor Lanciani's eye, he has reconstructed an account of the games and also given a description of the important discoveries lately made, which is of the highest interest, not only to archaeologists, but to the general reader. -M- Scribner's Magazine for February contains eight illustrated articles representing the work of Robert Blum, W. L. Metcalf, Irving H. Wiles, J. H. Twachtman, W. L. Taylor, and other skilful artists. In the group of Australian articles there is a vivid and picturesque description of pastoral life on the great sheep ranches which are peculiar to that country, fully illustrated from drawings by Birge Harrison, 'who has but recently returned from a long sojourn in that region. The notable group of Practical Charities is represented in this issue by "A Model Working-girls' club," the Poly- tichnic Young Women's institute of London, described by Dr. Albert Shaw, a close student of social and economic questions. We notice some comment about the ppointment of D. C. Chase as chairman of he judiciary committee being the result of n understanding with speaker Mitchell. That seems to us pretty far fetched. Mr. ihaso is an able lawyer, one of the few old members in the house, and the one naturally tted for the important post he holds. A ailure to appoint him would have been oticablo and have rightly occasioned com- nont, Senator Dent has introduced a bill at Des Moines for $100,000 for a normal school tLeMars. ' _ * The Des Moines newspaper men have rganized a press club, which' outside ditors can join. Everyone should enroll is name and assist in establishing a good lub for Iowa. J ustice Bradley of the United States upreme court is dead. He was 79 years of go, and was appointed to the supreme ench in 1870. Chicago has been selected for the oming national democratic convention, the seventh ballot Des Moines had eventeen votes. The meeting will be held uno 21. Chicago is the great convention ,ty, but it is not dominated by western in- uences as Minneapolis is, where the re- ublicans meet, The convention at Minne- polis will be the first distinctively western onvention ever held. Senator Fuuk is on the committees n corporations, railways, mines and miu- ip, printing, penitentiary and pardon, and ppropriations, and is chairman of the com- ittee on fish and game.. He has as desir- blo a place as any member in the senate. Bro. Roberts of the Fort Dodge Mesenger seems to consider a sound tariff rticlo a rare luxury in this office, and says: The tariff editorial from Tun UPPISH Bus [OINES elsewhere is one of the most sensi- le we have seen anywhere for a long time, nd we are glad to find it in that paper." The Carroll Herald says: The re- ublicans of the Fourth district are talking bout running ex-Gybvornor Larrabee for he seat in cougvess/now occupied by. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

Corwith Cresent: Mr. Manwaring received a telegram announcing the sad news that his brother, who is a professor in Ridgeville college, Ridgevflle, Indiana, is very sick and liable to die at any moment. Mr. Manwaring is not physically able to make the journey. Ernmetsburg Democrat: On Monday morning Miss Butler of the Whittemore neighborhood started to walk from Whittemore to her home north of town. When about eighty rods from town she was picked up by a passing teamster and found badly chilled and considerably frostbitten. Friday, a week ago, Win, Sweing of Graettinger was arrested on the charge of seduction. The girl in the case is Susan Decker. He is at present lodged in the county jail at Emmetsburg. An attempt was made to shoot him when he was about to leave Graottinger but ho was guarded by a constable. Officers of the state temperance alliance procured warrants and raided a saloon in Emmetsburg last week. The contraband goods were found in the cellars of John Dooley, John Gibson, and a man by the name of Conlon. About thirty half barrels of beer' were confiscated and placed in the county jail for safe keeping. Some time between 12 o'clock and daylight parties sawed through the door of the jail and spirited away the seized goods to some place not yet discovered. Who the parties were is not known. Ten more half barrels were seized which are still in the hands of the officers. On Friday of last week Oscar Anderson of Iowa township in Wright county became violently insane, and going to Rowen he mounted a B. C. R. & N. engine that chanced tP be standing on the track and informed the engineer that he owned that line of road and pro ^^^»*> to fun the engine. Suiting the action to the word he reached for the throttle and nulled It wide open, and but for the presence of mind of the engineer there would speedily have been a bad accident. He saw what the trouble was at a glance and remarked to Anderson: "That's all right, but we can't start without orders," after which he in* duced him lo:take a seat in the can. On reaching Belmond it required five men'to remove him*from,the locomotive without doing htm bodily harm. DEATH OF "OliDBUTOH." A Well-Uhown Horse Owner mid • Sport Passes Away, Those who remember the great running race in Algona, when John Winkel's "Hataf'and "Mule" and two of Butcher's horses competed, will be interested in the following account of the death of Butcher: Edward G. Butcher, one of the most widely-known men in sporting circles in the northwest, died at his home in Camanche, Wednesday, aged 68 years. He came to Iowa from Virginia in 1837, and has since resided here,' some of the time being engaged in farming and mercantile pursuits, but for many years past devoting all his wonderful energies to breeding and training fast horses, preferring running stock, and some noted horses he has bred, such as Alice Ward, who won 93 out of 112 races while Mr. Butcher owned her. Of this mare he composed a song that was as widely known as the author, and many a time in a race, when he was winning, he would break out in a loud, clear voice, singing " Alice Ward," being heard above tho din of the race course. He planned a few years ago a flying trapeze to be operated on the backs of four horses on the race track, with a gymnast on it performing. This he called his fantasma- goria, and it brought him much fame and money. He was one of the players of the old style, and liked the limit to reach the coiling, and yet many a time he has taken a young man that he liked and lectured him against gambling. He was a man of great muscular power and in early years was the peer of the Indians in their sports and ganaes, being fleetest of foot as well. His friends were legion, and everybody who knew him liked the genial ways of "Old Butch." ^_ NEW BIOYOLE rAOTOEY. Bert Jtdmonds Treasurer of a Big Company In DCS Moines. The State Register last Friday published the following item of local interest: E. D. Kenyon, A. B. Edmonds and Redhead, Norton, Lathrop & Co. have filed articles of incorporation with the county recorder and formed a company known as the Kenyon Bicycle Manufacturing company, with principal place of business at Des Moines. The business of the company is the manufacturing, repairing and sale of bicyles and bycycle sundries. The capital stock is placed at $25,000. For the merchandise, good will, etc., of the present Kenyon Cycle company $2,300 in stock is paid and the remainder may be sold by the board of directors, but not below par, except by the consent of three- fourths of the paid in stock. The officers are: President, M. M. Norton; treasurer, A. B. Edmonds; secretary, C. C. Rhodes; superintendent, E. H. Kenyon. Their wheel is known at the " Pacemaker." The New Postal Cards. The new postal cards are beginning to circulate through the mails. One is larger and of an inferior quality than the old ones and the other is smaller, on white linen paper. Both bear the portrait of Gen. Grant, instead of that of President Monroe, which adorns the old ones. The large one, while it affords more space for writing, may prove a little troublesome to clerks and messengers making up packages for the mails, and may also be more liable to mutilation on account of its size. It is possible that the big postal card may postpone the day of one cent letter postage for a season, but it will not be long before the country generally will have the benefit of the one-cent letter postage, as well as the free delivery system. Postmaster General Wanamaker, in applying his thorough business methods to the mail service, is making improvements and innovations in all directions, and will soon have the mail facilities and postal service as perfect as may be possible in ment. any govern- Death of Simeon Osborne. The Humboldt Independent has the following account of the death of a well known man in Algona, a brother-in-law of D. Rice and Mrs. C. A. Ingham. Mr. Osborne came to Kossuth in an early day, and then went to Owattonna, Minn., where he lived many years and where his first wife is buried: At his home in Dakota City, Iowa, Tuesday morning, Jan. 19, 1892, Mr, S. Osborne aged 69 years. Mr. Osborne was attacked Sunday night by paralysis and was unconcious or nearly so till the time of his death. He was ripe and full of years and had no fear of death that would have caused him more than a momentary pang had he been conscious, He was highly respected by those who knew him and he is not mourned in the ordinary sense. He will be greatly missed by all his old friends and by his loving children. He had his home with his son George D. Osborne, the Dakota merchant, since he has been west. He has also a daughter Mrs John Bristol living in Bradgate and other relatives at Algona.

NOT SO BAD, AFTER ALL So Say the Jnfy in the Case of Hubbard and Rantzow, Tried at Estherville Last Week, They Only Committed Assault arid Battery, and Will Board with .the County Thirty Days. Showea Gootl Judgment. Wesley Reporter: S. S. Sessions of Algona was re-elected a director of the state fair. Mr. Sessions rendered valuable service last year and the society show good judgment in retaining him. A FINE line of new- dried fruits at W. Carter's, The Hubbard-Rantzow case was tried at Estherville, beginning last week Tuesday and closing with a verdict by the jury Friday night. After an all- day and all-night session the. jury gave a compromise verdict of guilty of assault and battery. The full penalty for this is thirty days in the county jail and Judge Carr awarded this penalty The defendants returned to Algona Saturday and are now living out theii sentence. It is understood that a con trolling influence with many of the ja rors was the fact that the men had been in jail six months, and this was though to be a big punishment in itself. The light offense they were found guilty o will no doubt be a surprise to tho peo pie in the county who knew something of the facts, but was all those jurors who favored conviction could get award ed by the others who favored an ac quittal. The case was tried on essentially the same evidence that was presented be fore. The prosecution had TWO MATERIAL WITNESSES who were new to the case. Mr. John of the Milwaukee eating house testifiet that he heard Rantzow and Hubbarc talk about going around and heading Allen and the girl off. Peter Collin also^testified that he was one of thos who'ran down the track to separate th parties, and that he heard Rantzov tell Hubbard to kill Allen. Allen an Miss Bowman told essentially the sara story as before, and the evidence fo the defense was about tho same, Rant zow and Hubbard both claiming tha they went to Reimer's for a shoemak er's bench, and that Allen began th fight, and that the cutting was done al ter Allen had Hubbard down. Th conduct of the case for the defense wa essentially different, however, than a Algona, and Attorneys Sullivan and Wade adopted a course which had a material effect on the jury. They as sumed from the outset that Miss Bow man was a questionable witness; tha Allen had married three years ago am separated from his wife, and as no do cree of divorce had been offered in evi denco, that ho was still married; tha their walk hand in hand to the timbei on Sunday was an offense against pub lie decency; that Hubbard and Rant zow "guyed" them and so the quarre began. In the former trial Stebbins and others testified that they knew there was GOING TO BE TROUBLE, and followed down the track to proven it. But the judge gave a new trial because this was improperly admitted and in this trial Mr. Wade asked the jury, "Why were Stebbins and Collins and Callahan and the others tagging this couple down the track to the tin* beiyas well as Hubbard and Rantzow?' The reader will see the light thrown on the evidence by such a course, anc as Hubbard's and Rantzow's wives anc children were present and the evidence seemed to be that they were men o family and orderly citizens, the contrast between their conduct and Allen's was in their favor. Then the attorneys had Allen's and Miss Bowman's former evidence, and while the witnesses told essentially the same story, they were confused on some points, and were scared out of telling their story in a confident and convincing manner. This course through two days of examination, and especially in Mr. Wade's argument, when his whole stress was put upon the improper conduct of Allen, the fact he had carried an open knife in one hand while holding the girl with the other hand, and the conflict in the evidence on special points TOLD ON THE JURY, and made a conviction for a high offense out of the question. And the state oould not meet this attack, foi they were not allowed to show that Hubbard and Rantzow were quarrel some, that they had attacked others or that the depot boys knew that thev meant mischief. * The case was hotly contested on both sides, County Attorney Myerly of Estherville assisting Mr. Joslyn and making' the opening speech to the jury. Mr, Wade made a very eloquent appeal on behalf of the families and children of the defendants, and tears stood in the eyes of many in the court room as he pictured the infamy that would fall on them if the jury sent their husbands and fathers to the' penitentiary. Mr Joslyn made an excellent closing argument, and on the whole conducted the case more ably than in the former trial, i.ne sentence is a fair expression of the views of men who knew none of the parties and who had no evidence of the character or reputation of the defendants save as brought out by the con- fh& evidence of their conduct in this one affray. As Hubbard and Rant- m a Tt h ? d 8iX m ° nths in I" 11 ' «S qual to two years in state's prison so far as actual punishment is concerned, that alone will prove a warning to them, and we look to see them become our most law-abiding citizens.

THE BAPTIST BEvlVAL MBETIHG8,1 Interest Being Shown In Palmor'a Work—His Record •where. t To the Editor: Never in all my hla- tory as a pastor have I known a spirit, ual lender who won the confidence of praying people so rapidly as Evangelist Palmer. He began special work in the Baptist church Jan. 21. From thftt very first night the interest grew rapidly. Other public gatherings interfered with the audiences; but they were large each evening. On Sunday morning the Baptist house was crowded and many went away. Sunday evening, in response to the kind invitation of the Congregationalists, we went there for the evening and a crowded house greeted the speaker. It was & meeting of power. Over one hundred quoted scripture or testified to their interest in Jesus. It is no marvel that Bro. Palmer draws, for he combines in himself many of the most winning qualifications of our most successful evangelists. He depends upon the Holy Spirit for success in his meetings; this is tho secret of his power. He is unique in the treatment of Gdd's Word and in all his methods in conducting the meetings. He has a striking appearance and is the possessor of a large heart. He has the manliness 'to deal kindly, yet candidly with his audience, He sings sweetly and with extraordiary effect, under the blessing of God. • At this meeting we feel that we are in the midst of a great' work of »grace. Our prayer is that God may awaken every slumbering disciple of our risen Lord, and that-the work may spread from house to house,, until every family in tho city is touched with God's infinite love, and until the surrounding country is all permeated with the gospel leaven, Rev. D. J. Pulis, D. D. of Nebraska says: "He is a man of God, a student of the Bible, a clear sermonizer, a graphic speaker, a sweet singer, and wise in winning souls." . Rev. M. G. Hodge, D. D. of Wisconsin says: "I have known Bro. Palmer for years, and believe him to be a true and earnest worker." The Bible reading of today was one of power, dealing with the first, Adam and the second Adam; Christian people who want to grow strong in faith, like Elijah, or strong to toil, like Paul, or strong to speak to lost souls, come to the Bible meetings at 9:30, at the Baptist church. w. H. D. A CARD PROM MR. PALMER. Guide for members of the National Bible class for 1892: We read the New Testament and the Psalms through by course.

C. W. PALMER, Evangelist, National Secretary.' A Xote from Bancroft. To the Editor: Please allow me to correct an impression made by an item copied from one of the Estherville papers, in your issue of the 13th inst., concerning the sickness and death of our little boy. A false impression is jonyeyed by the words: "Tho neighbors were so afraid of catching the contagious disease that Mr. and Mrs. Williams were left entirely to themselves," etc. This might lead the reader to suppose that we were neglected by our friends and neighbors, while exactly the reverse was the case. We were juarantined, and no one allowed to enter the house, nor did we expect them under the circumstances. But they were most attentive to our needs, our daily wants were regularly supplied, and we were most kindly cared for in every respect. The general facts given in the item are correct, but the wording is so different from what I used in my '• letter to a friend" that an unpleasant and false color is given to those facts, Yours truly.
