Blaine declines a sure nomination for the presidency of the United States. His letter written Saturday is as follows: Hon." J. 8. Clarkson, Chairman of the Republican National Committee—My Dear Sir: I am not a candidate for the presidency, and iny name will not go before the republican national convention for the nomination, I make this announcement in due season. To those who have tendered me their support I owe sincere thanks and am most grateful for their confidence. They will, I am sure, inako an earnest effort in the approaching contest, which is rendered especially important by reason of the industrial and financial policies of the government being at stake. A popular decision on these issues is of great moment and will be of far-reaching consequence. Very sin cerely yours. JAMES G. BLAINE. This announcement will bring regret to thousands of republicans, to whom Blaine stands for more than any other living American. It means that now he will never be president, and while the presidency could have added nothing to his fame and might have detracted from it, still thousands will feel a sense of personal loss in being deprived of hurrahing at his inauguration. All his personal popularity remains, the slanders that submerged him eight years ago have died of age, while as secretary of state his record of positive, lasting statesmanship has been made. When he was nominated before it was not easy to show the actual measures of legislation he had inaugurated. Today his name is linked with the most important policy adopted since the war, and his diplomacy has successfully coped with the three most difficult complications since the war. Blaine stands head and shoulders today higher than ever before in his career, and the nomination and election as president were his to take. Whatever his reasons, and they were doubtless good and sufficient, he has put aside the highest honor the people could give, and one they would have given by a spontaneous popular uprising. them early so that the full effect of the boom may be felt before any other state conventions are called. The catling of this convention on such short notice and so long before it ordinarily would be held, in order to prevent the feeling of the democratic masses in favor of Cleveland to find expression, is a characteristic move on Hill's part, and is of a piece with all his manipulations. He has made it win in beating Mills, Carlisle, etc., in congress. It seems likely he will beat Cleveland now in the democratic conventions. his speeches on the stump. The debate will be heated and the republicans will fight the bill on the floor, and by amendments. The general impression at Des Moines is that no liquor legislation of any kind will pass at this session. sup- T1I15 JjOTTEUY CONTEST. Louisiana is in the midst of a struggle scarcely less bitter than that of reconstruction days. The fight of the Louisiana lottery company for a new charter has divided the democratic party, and although the real issue is now removed, the election of governor is likely to be attended with tumult and bloodshed. Foster is the candidate of tlie anti-lottery party and McEnnery of the lottery supporters. Gov. Nichols favors the latter and is using all his influence to prevent the former from being elected. Last week a cargo of 40 cases of Winchester rifles was received by the chairman of the McEnnery committee, who said in an interview: " Yes, it is a fact that those arms have come to New Orleans addressed to mo us .chairman of the, democratic executive committee. There has been absolutely no attempt made to conceal their shipment and there is likewise no effort being made by us to disguise why the arms have been secured. Wo are providing ourselves with them simply to protect ourselves against any scheme, armed or otherwise, to deny us a free ballot and a fair count in the coming election." To this the New Delta, Foster's porter, says: " To the Winchester in the hands of the hireling oppose tho Winchester in the hands of tho freeman. Lot every crack of a lottery riilo wuko as an answering echo ..- the report of un anti-lottery gun. If the hoodlums of New Orleans appear upon the streets of this city armed with weapons placed in their hands by this lottery committee sweep thorn from the face of tho earth. If the streets of New Orleans are to be reddened with blood lot it not be alone the blood of its good citizens. If wholesale murder has been resolved upon by the lot tery let the people resolve upon wholesale executions." Since the late decision of the United States supreme court sustaining the anti-lottery law, the lottery officials have publicly withdrawn their demand for a charter. But the Foster men say this is merely a trick, and that the campaign must go on. It will be bitter now in any event, and there would seem to be only one outcome with rifles and ammunition freely distributed on both sides among a people who have never had much respect at any time for honest elections and fair political methods. It looks as though the Foster ticket would win. At least the days of the great Liouisiana lottery swindle are ended. iff THE LEGISLATURE. The visitor at Des Moines is not long in discovering that but little legislation is expected from this session. No partisan measures of any kind will pass, the members realize that they cannot pass, and the older ones are anxious for hurrying up the appropriations and adjourning. The senate Will begin an animated debate tomorrow on the Schmidt local option bill, but no one now pretends to believe that there will be any change in the prohibitory law, and so this will be conducted more for show than for any other purpose. As the recent census did not make changing the congressional districts necessary it is entirely likely that they will not be changed, although there is considerable slate-making on both sides and a compromise measure may go through. Tho legislativedistrictswillbo changed and Kossuth will in all probability be again put by herself. The appropriations will be cut to the smallest allowance that will be accepted. The proposition to give the state university a special tax to belong to it seems to meet with favor and if it passes, as it should, that will remove one big claim. No one seems to believe that any new institutions will be established. The normal schools and an insane asylum, are both asked for, but there is little prospect of either. There is, however, a strong sentiment in favor of extending the state normal system, and it is a matter of a very few years till this will be done. Some new schools will be located in the near future, without any question. The world's fair and soldiers' monument are special burdens at this session, butane if not more new schools will certainly come two years from now. If the Australian ballot bill becomes a law it will be the most important of anything that will be done this winter. The Utica Press has ah eye to the fitness of things: looks as well as a There is more immodesty at a full dress party than in a whole cavalcade of female bicyclers."

Profust in Their Praise of Northwestern Iowa's Hub and the Entertainment at Her Hands. The legislature has accepted an Invi* tation to visit the state university at Iowa City. The Rock Island road furnishes a free train, the citizens furnish free entertainment, and the state is out nothing, whi!e the members see the school in working order and get acquainted with its needs. They will go this we,ek. The Carroll Herald has issued a handsome pamphlet illustrating Carroll's growth. Carroll is a city of push and enterprise, and the Herald has put the proof in convenient form. Such towns and such papers do more for Iowa than world's fair exhibits. The republicans had their Australian ballot bill up in the house atDesMoines Monday. It is a- copy of the Massachusetts law, the best yet devised. They will pass the bill there, and it will be left with the democratic senate to shall become a law. decide whether it Bro. Jenkins was manager for Estherville's crack ball nine a year ago. The hotel keeper has sued him and got judgment for SS0 for board of members of the club, and they and the club's backers sit back and see him lose. What kind of men do they have in the sporting fraternity up there? Our esteemed friend, the Fort Dodge Chronicle, regards with great favor all references to the merits of Gov. Boies' inaugural, but seems to be unduly sensitive to criticisms of his campaign speeches. It says: "TnEUprmt DBS MOINKS, a republican paper, pays Gov.' Boies a deserved compliment on both his inaugural address and his message to the legislature. * * * But after the above is uttered THE UPPISH DBS MOINES descends from the pedestal of a journal and grinds out the regular republican whine, as familiar to readers of republican papers as the noise of the hand organ. If TUB UPPEII MOINES had only stopped after the above-quoted paragraph, was written, how much better it would have been." We are sorry to see the Chronicle so mistaken. There has been no "republican whiue." All the republicans have dono is to object to whining about Iowa. As we said before, Gov. Boies bragging about Iowa is all right. But Gov. Boies bragging on Vermont compared to Iowa presents the • IN THIS NEIOHBOEHOOD. Elmore Post: Mrs. Angus of Burt spent Sunday .and Monday with friends in Elmore Mrs. Rice of Algona is visiting with .her daughter, Mrs. Pangburn, this week. Emmetsburg Democrat: While at Algona we accidentally learned that Supt. Donlon is about to close a big deal with Patrick Cain of that place. For particulars inquire of the Algona ladies. LuVerne News: The address of welcome delivered by Mayor Sheetz to the visiting newspaper fraternity last Friday evening was the best thing of the kind we have heard in a long time. It was a masterpiece of English and appropriate to a fault. Denison Review: tlemen we met Mr. Among other gen- B. F. Reed, who silly and demagogic picture ing justice lawyer. of a pettifog- Gov. Thuyer of Nebraska has at last done what ho should have done long ago _ given way to Gov. Boyd. Senator Finn has a bill to prevent county auditors or treasurers from holding more than two terms. The Eagle Grove Gazette has a new partner in C. E. Schoff, an experienced practical printer. ___ ' Gov. Flower has distinguished himself already. A committee of leading New York citizens appeared before him last week to talk about the world's fair. After they had proceeded some ways he interrupted them with the sententious remark " rats. " They recovered enough to go on, but he said "rats" again and that ended the discussion. A man like Flower in a gubernatorial chair is about as appropriate as an has lately been elected county superintendent and who was a law classmate of Judge J. P. Conner at Iowa City. Miss Lillian Decker, one of the bright teachers in the town schools, we found was well acquainted with the family of Mr. T. J. Garrison of this city. OSstherville Vindicator: The editorial meeting at Algona was a great success wo .judge from Mi-. McFarland's account of it. He says the good people of that live town did every thing possible to make it pleasant for the visitors " within their gates" and of course a delightful time was enjoyed by all. These meetings are not only pleasant but profitable as well, and we very much regret our inability to be present. Esther-villa Republican: The writer was shown through the Algona water works plant last week. It has the stand pipe pressure and is owned by the town The stand pipe is .12 feet in diameter, 100 feet high, and holds 100,000 gallons of water. They have only about half a mile of mains as yet, consequently are not able to be of general service. The water-supply isfrom the company's well li,," 0 ' 0 , 112 feet dee P by eight feet broad. ihe plant thus far has cost the town less than $10,000 and it costs them only about $50 a month to operate it. Additional eight-inch mains will cost §1.65 per foot. You may thus see how expensive is a water works plant Its benefit all know. BEUTE FOSQE TBEIR^EMEDY. AH a Sequel to Emmetsburg's Beer Haiti Bro. Koimett Is Roughly Handled— The lleporter'B Account of The Affair. Emmetsburg Reporter: On Tuesday, as Mr. Bennett was returning to the office from dinner, he fell in with W. L. Fitkin somewhere near the postoflice and the two walked down the street. While crossing the street between the C. K. Meyers in the Denison Review: We went to Algona predisposed in its favor. We came away delighted with the city and its people. They treated the editors handsomely. On Friday night they gave their guests a magnificent banquet. We had a, thoroughly enjoyable time, meeting and conversing with some of the moat successful editors in northern Iowa, and are pleased that the trip was made. Algona people are proud of their schools. All but one of the thirteen instructors teach in a large brick building, centrally located. This is a model school building. It stands in a large square and is an imposing structure. The building was evidently erected with a view to practical use rather than display. It is heated with hot air and steam. The light in each room is arranged to come to the left side of the pupils. In this it is vastly superior to the new school building in Denison, where the light comes pouring in from all three sides. In two rooms of the new school building in Denison the pupils must face the strong south light from large windows provided with no shutters. The editors were taken into three departments. In these the children had special exercises prepared. They all did remarkably well, and were a credit to Prof. Dixson, the principal, and the teachers. Algona has a normal school, presided over by Prof. Chaffee, a graduate of Cornell college. At the present time 120 persons are attending the school. It is backed by the citizens, who take a marked interest in educational affairs. We hope that in time the legislature will see lit to establish a normal school for northern Iowa at Algoua. The town is well located for it and the citizens have shown ability and determination to help themselves, which is commendable. * * * F. Q.

The first place was the public school. We were ceived by Prof. Dixson, who conducted us to several rooms, where interesting exercises, such as reciting in concert, singing, inarching and drilling, were performed. Everything was quiet and orderly, and confirmed us in our belief that Prof. Dixson is one of the best school men in the state. The Algona school house is a large two-story building, accommodating 10 departments. It is devoid of all unnecessary ornaments. Returning to town we passed the cold- storage house and stopped at the Algona green house. At this time of the year the latter is the most beautiful spot in Algona and we were very loth to return from our brief stay in summer- land to cold, raw Iowa. Before we left however, the gentlemanly proprietor presented each editor and his lady with a beautiful button-hole boquet. The banquet had been prepared by the ladies of Algona, with Mrs. Lantry at their head, and if there was anything in the way of choice viands to be found m the market that they had not provided in ample abundance we failed to discover the fact. Besides the more substantials there were cream, cake of sav the editors one and all, capping the climax with a most sumptuous banquet. After the response to the last toast, and ^ a final expression of their pleasure and gratification, the members of the association and their ladies, standing about the banquet table, lifted their voices in an editorial song of praise of "Alle-go-ni-a." Tho thanks of the editors are especially due to the brethren representing the fraternity at Al- pona, for their untiring labor to render the visit of the editors pleasant and agreeable. They left nothing undone to make the occasion memorable. *** Miss Edith Train in the Fort Dodge Times: The faculty of the normal school gave a fine reception at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ambrose A. Call on Thursday evening, Prof. Chaffee responded to the "Art in Advertising" at the banquet Friday evening, and the carriage drive about the city included the location of the normal building and the fine grounds which will be turned over to to the state, should this school be made a state institution. In the mean time the splendid work of the faculty is attracting students from a iarge contiguous territory, and the normal is one of the worthy institutions of northern Iowa... .The ladies of Algona, members of the Woman's Relief corps, prepared the banquet, which was most elaborate, and loaned from their own homes the handsome furnishings for the court house hall The heavy timber which abounded in that section of the country attracted settlers, and the place is now a thriving litttle city with two railway lines, and public spirited citizens who are ready to vouch that a third road shall receive its share of patronage. It has boon said that a people partake of the nature of the coun- Bry in which they are reared. This seems to bo true of the people of Algona. Of those things in which the people of the city take pride, their homes are always placed first; large commodious frame dwellings, handsome and substantial, with an air of prosperity. The second in point of interest is the public school, the building having all the modern improvements. Here again the suggestion of a timber country found expression in the alertness of the pupils and their ready response to the directions of the teachers, hinting at a home discipline supplemental to that of the instructor. who sat down to it.

Depew says electricity will supplant steam in the next twenty-live years. THE CONTMST IN NEW YORK. The Cleveland and Hill forces are now fairly matched in New York, and on the 22nd the country will know the strength of each. Hill has had the state democratic convention called to meet in less than two weeks. Having control of the political machinery this gives him the upper hand. The Clevland forces, being unorganized, cannot take advantage of so unprecedented a situation and are lighting to elect delegates who will insist on an adjournment after they meet. The New York World, the most powerful democratic paper, says 51 democratic and independent papers, representing 20 states, have denounced Hill's trick to get the New York delegation, but neither this nor the address of the independent democrats of the state have any effect on him. He proposes to have New York's ,70 odd delegates Hill men, and have Gilbert of Clayton county has a bill to regulate sleeping cars. They cannot charge over $1.50 for 800 miles for lower berth, or over 75 cents for upper berth, and the upper berth must be kept closed unless sold. The railway commissioners are to have control of the whole matter. bank and the Tobin & Shea store, John Dooley, who stood in a crowd on the east side of the store, began addressing foul epithets to them equally, and accused them of being responsible for, or having something to do with making the seizure of beer from his cellar They made no reply, but separated at the corner, Mr. Fitkin continuing down the street and Mr. Bennett turning to go to the Reporter office. Here Mr. Dooley seemed to direct his remarks directly at Mr. Bennett, and the latter stopped, when Mr. Dooley went cept poor varieties. ble to express the credit due to the ladies for the splendid success thev made of the banquet. When the question was once asked, "How to Manage a Husband," some materialist answered .' feed , , the , b ™te.» Repudiating the idea of "the brute" we have only to say that if we were to judge from the banquet spread by them, if there is any virtue, in managing husbands by feeding them, the ladies of Algona hold the Key to the matrimonial situation. # * # W. I. Brannagan in the Emmetsburg Democrat: The editorial association held at Algona, Thursday and Friday, was in all respects the largest and most successful in the history of the organization, surpassing even speets, the splendid in some re- meeting held in were fi-om Geo. E. Roberts in the Ft. Dodge Messenger: The Upper Des Moines Editorial association held a very pleasant meeting at Algonalastweek. About forty guests were present, and the people of Algona fairly outdid all previous hosts. The creditors of the leading hotel, hearing of the impending visitation, concluded that it was then or never wjth them, and levied upon all the visible assets of the house. This threw the editonial squad upon the town, and the people responded most heartily. The visitors were taken into the homes of the city and royally entertained. A reception was tendered them at the home of Hon. Ambrose A. Call, by the faculty of the normal school, and a very Pleasant evening was thus spent. The Call home is one of the most beautiful and spacious in this part of Iowa, and to Mr. and Mrs. Call are due the hearty thanks of the association. Alffona shows steady growth, and the comine season promises to be the best it has ever had. The normal school is doine- well under private management, but would be much more useful if it could have state support. That it will no doubt get in due time. Whenever the state is ready to support another normal school there is every reason why it should adopt this one. Prof. Chaffee under whose management it now is is a young and progressive man of good lHty and of wel1 trained ™«* v, meeting closed with an elegant banquet tendered by the people of Algona. This is not the season of the year to see Algona at its best, but its people never appear to disadvantage,' unless they get into politics, and then it is commonly to the other fellow's disadvantage. * * * W. O. Payne in the Nevada Representative: The editors were very cordially received and entertained by the people of Algona, and fared better had they this city one year ago. There present about 40 editors, many such distant counties as Story, Carroll" Hamilton, Webster, Buena Vista, and Crawford. They came evidently well prepared for an interesting session and a grand, good time, and in neither case ™''° l i he /v ln i the - leasfc disappointed. They had business, receptions, could not have been prodigals returning. A reception on Thursday evening at the elegant home of Ambrose A. Call, one of the leading citizens, a carriage ride for the whole party Friday afternoon to see the sights of the city, and a sumptuous banquet at the court house late Friday evening all showed to great advantage the agreeableness and hospitality of the Algona people, qualities in which they may perhaps be rivaled, but not sur-passed. The exorcises and entertain- which closed the whole regation- their wives at their homes in a O reatly appreciated by the guests believe hereafter members of the ,™. ternity will retain a warm spot iu thiu 1 hearts for Algona. UBir '• «** M. H. Richards in the Spencer News Algona's schools are her pride, and justly so. Her public school buildtn* is centrally located and is a* model jj size and arrangement. They see to it also, that none but the best of teachers are employed. The normal school at present under the supervision of p ro | Chaffee, a most scholarly gentleim, and proficient teacher, is in a nourish ing condition and its health jealously guarded by all her. citizens, who art again hopeful that the present legisin. ture will see fit to make it a state Instl! tution. Surely the nothwest portion oi the state is entitled to a normal school In Algona this cordial spirit waj as marked as anywhere it has been our pleasure yet to go. All homes werj thrown open and the editors became members of the first families of town, a novelty most of them enjoyed If there be any complaint we should make of our reception or treatment it is that the people put themselves out too <""*'' much, more than we had any right top ' expect or can ever repay them for, for|i our accomodation and pleasure, Itf tempts us to fancy that it is a glorious thing to be an editor. ; J / Corwith Crescent: Tho writer and,, !> wife attended the Upper Des Moines ^'V Editorial association at Algona InstjPf* week, and were entertained at the>$P splendid home of W.

Tho residences were almost ' f universally fronted with beautiful gras- , sy lawns, with just trees enough studding them to create a very beautiful effect, It was evident to us that the gay and festive cow running at large ( was a stranger to the incorporation at all pvents. Not only are the people artists, but are also adepts at entertainment, trying in every way to prove to he weary editor that there is something living for in this world, , and that Algona's citizens are the ones to prove it to him. # * * S.
