TftE-senatorial committee which has been "investigating the claims df'theap- pointed senators from Montana, Washington, etc., has reported that they are entitled to seats. In these States the legislatures sat in deadlock on the senatorial question all winter and adjourned without electing 'anybody. The governors then appointed ?as they would in case of a vacancy caused by death. It was urged that thefoiilure of •iho legislatures to act amounted to a, 'refusal on the part of the state to bd 'represented, but the committee does •not accept this view. The whole matter is of interest chiefly to showing the absurdity of chasing senators by the roundabout methods no* employe^. The members of state legislatures have no interests in the choice 'of senators that they would not hnvo as private • citizens. They do have, however, other interests which are affected by senatorial selections, which are vitally important. So it happens that when there are more than two candidates combinations which affect all the business of a session arc mnde and every member would prefer a permanent deadlock to defeat. In three states the paet winter no choice was made, and it is entirely possible that should the whole matter be left to the legislature in this state next winter, no one would be selected to succeed Senator Wilson from among the half dozen who will have a following. No one can give any reason why a senator should be chosen by the legislature which is not an impeachment of populur government. The custom is a survival of that superstitious regard for English customs, which English descendents could not overcome, and is bunglesome, undemocratic, and an anachronism in this day and age. The people should do with it as they have with the choice of presidents in the electoral college, and as soon as possible change the constitution. tbeta for tthe information of the people, should precede such an election as Speaker Mitchell proposes. The report of the tariff commission of 1882, •although it resulted in no immediate legislation, has hod a powerful effect in influencing public thought, and though no direct results may attend the<labors •of-our state revenue commission, the people will hereafter discuss more intelligently all questions of taxation be•cause of them, enlightenment Who can estimate the which would 'follow report or individual reports by a body of such men as D. N. Richardson, S. M. Clark, Dr. Fellows, J. .T. Hamilton, and Col. Eiboeck—to take five at random whose scholarly attainments and habits of thought as well as predilections are well known—on the laws and customs of other states and nations, the use of liquor and its effects, the best methods of promoting temperance and the rights of the individual citizen in lowa.V Such a report would take the wholei question at once out of politics, would} bring it before the people on its merits,^ and would aid materially in leading to intelligent action and permanent results. cisive -writers of the northwest and all his acquaintances will regret to lose him from the U. D. it E. A. The Tribune, however, remains In good hands and its management will be characterized by the same push and energy that have made it what It Is. Senator Funk says: " Death always brlngs.'Sorrow enough, but the gloom may beanudh Intensified by spirediby the event." original poetry In- And now it is rumored that H. C. Whoeler wants to be re nominated for governor. The Blue Earth Post says: "We see byonany of our exchanges that postoffice elections are becoming quite popular. We father like the idea. It la the fairest way 'Oftexpresslng the popular choice." SPEAKER MITCHELL of the last legislature has suggested to the Des Moines Capital a plan for testing public sentiment on prohibition. Ho proposes tliat the republicans pledge themselves that if they are successful in electing a governor and a majority of the legislature they will within thirty days after the convening of the coming session submit the question of continuing the prohibitory law to a vote of all the people. The election is to be held in due form, while the legislature is still in session, and the majority are to be bound by the result. Speaker Mitchell says: " This plan would embody the strongest form of a resubmission of the question to the people. It would be prompt and decisive. It would take the question out of politics. The special election would necessarily be non-partisan. Every man would vote his sentiment, knowing that ho was deciding or helping to decide what law should be made within ton days after the election. There would be no danger of the failure of the effectiveness of the vote on account of any technicality. The legislature would be in session while the election was being held. The campaign would bo short, sharp, and decisive. It would be hot and the voice of the people would fix the policy of the state." While such an election would be an unusual proceeding, the legislature could undoubtedly order it, and secure such an expression of public opinion as Representative Chase suggested in his letter of some weeks ago. It would be very much preferable to a resubmission of the prohibitory amendment, and would be practically an adoption of a plan advocated by many of submitting all important public matters to a vote of the people. The chief objection to this plan, as to all others for any immediate change, if a change is to be made, is that it assumes that the people are willing to choose between the present law and some loeal-option law like the Gatch bill If the majority should be for prohibition such an election would answer well enough. But if the majority should be against prohibition what preparation in public thought has been made for the change? How satisfactory is a new law likely to be which has received but little consideration, especially if it possesses all the features LAFE YOUNG has been as wid<$y talked of as the coming republican candidate for governor as any man in Iowa, and last week the Marshalltown Republican correspondent asked him if he would accept the nomination. In reply ho said: "Ida n °t expect to seek tho nomination. Should I bo selected to lead the party, however, I would consider it my duty to'lav everything else down and make an hunest and earnest flght to lead the party to -.'victory." Mr. Young, if he should be chosen, would make a winning canvass of the state. He can meet any opponent in joint debate, is a vigorous and courageous fighter, arouses the enthusiasm of his supporters, and has had the public experience needed in the administration of the governor's office. There seems to be a general demand this year that the republican candidate fee well equipped for a vigorous and aggressive campaign. If this demand prevails it will be difficult to find a more available man than Mr. Young. Six members of the republican centeal committee mot in Des Moines last week to.ur- range for a future meeting at which the time of holding the coming state convention will be agreed upon, Some informal discussion was had over the nomination of a candidate for the senate, but the members present wore of the opinion that the committee would not include that in the call for the convention. They thought that as nothing was done by the last convention Sliey would have no authority to act, and that if a senatorial nomination is to be made the delegates are the ones to decide upon lit. It is a matter that will undoubtedly be-discussed in the convention. The committeemen further agreed that the convention alone could determine what policy should bo pursued in dealing with liquor legislation, and no preliminary conference wiil'be held. A suit is being brought at LeMars to :test the law prohibiting aliens from Inheriting real estate in Iowa. An Englishman {recently received 815,000 worth of laad by shls son's will, and the attempt is to forfeit "It to the school fund. A great debate is being held at Philadelphia between Henry Watterson, Gen. Weaver, Stewart L. Woodford and Hev. Conwell. Tho question is "whichoffers the best practical means for the interests of the worklngmen; the democratic party, the people's pa?ty, the republican party or the church?" Watterson spoke two weeks ago, Rev. Conwell spoke last Wednesday, Gen. Weaver speaks tomorrow, and Woodford closes'on the 18th. The Dubuque Telegraph discusses tho city primaries in it's city and is led to exclaim : " We deny to inteffigent woman the right to vote, yet we freely grantit to many men who have no more appreciation of its meaning and potentiality than a chipmunk has of,the value of a diamond or the utility of a compass." Consideration ofDubuque methods would make a person favor anything for a change. the June meeting of the school board." Prof. Simpson is Dr. Gar field'a nephew and a former Algona teacher. Carroll Herald: Jimmy Ryan, it is said, has recommended M. M. Vonstine for postmaster at Glidden. Jimmy is having lots of fun with the boys, holding- but promises and giving the offices to the other fellows. State Register: The auditor of state authorized the Whittemore State bank of Whittemore, Kossuth county, to begin business yesterday. It has a paid tip capital of $35,000. The president is G. E. Boyle and the cashier Cory Bidgeway. Eagle Grove Times: Miss Irma Clarke of Algona arrived last Tflhurs day. for a short visit at the residence of J. C. Heckart .Guy Delaney, who is now employed as clerk in a hotel at Algona, was visiting his boy rfriends here this week. The Spirit Lake Chautauqua promises to be the great event of the coming season. Rev. Talmage, Henry Watterson, Rev. Joseph Cook, Frank Beard and many other noted speakers are engaged, while several fine musical organizations will attend. Emmetsburg Reporter: Grange is to discuss the iroad question next Saturday. It seems to us as though some good mig-.ht be accomplished by a general meeting of the road supervisors of this county, at some time before the season?s road work is begun. Bancroft Register: Martin Jordan, who lived southeast of Bancroft, has moved to Algona and it is reported will build a large cold storage building. Whether Algona is large enough to support such an institution still remains to be seen, but a city of that magnitude Senator Roach, the newly elected member from North Dakota, is said to have been an embezzler In Washington many years ago to the amount of §60,000, amd also to have secured his election to .the senate by questionable means. The sena/be will investigate both charges. should give such business. an enterprise a good The new eight page Des Moines Capital is out. It is a handsome paper, and better than ever. And it promises still to improve. Miss Edith Prouty, the lady lawyer of Humboldt, is a member of the state university scientific expedition which goes (to the Bahama Islands May 1. Prof. Calvin, stato geologist, has charge of the company, which sails in a specially fitted vessel from Baltimore. This morning's papers concede Carter H. Harrison's election as mayor of Chicaga. Bismark's eighty-third birthday was attended with great demonstrations last Friday. It is said that President Cleveland has decided to call congress together in September. He considers that an extra session is needed to get tariff reform under way. which made local option so unpopular twelve years ago? Political necessity may demand an immediate decision for or against prohibition. But the best interests of the state demand that if any change" is to be made from the present law it be only after a thorough investigation and discussion. What is needed more than anything else is that the whole subject of liquor legislation be gone into on its merits. Ninety-nine out of every hundred voters, if compelled to vote next winter, would admit that they know next to nothing about what has boon tried in other states and nations, and would admit that they have but dim notions of what should be done in Iowa. In the interests of a wise and judicious policy in dealing with the liquor problem we believe that the appointment of a competent commission by the President Higinbotham of the world's fair has issued a circular to correct the impression that thoro will be extortion prac- tised on tho grounds. Thoro will be 8,000 free drinking fountains with sterilized or filtered water. Those who prefer, however, can get spring water at stands by paying for it. There will bo 1,500 free water closets and toilet rooms. Those who prefer can for five cents go to others where they will find extra conveniences. The prices at lunch counters and restaurants are limited by tho management, and all who prefer can take their lunches in with them. The fee of 50 cents entitles anyone to see everything in the exposition grounds, including all tho state and world's fair buildings. The side exhibitions are along the Midway Plaisaneo outside tho grounds THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. Scribner's Magazine for April opens artistically with a rich group of illustrations by Robert Blum, who has recently returned from a two years' residence in Japan. He has written several papers detailing in the most entertaining way his experiences while in that country, and each of these will be fully illustrated from the remarkable collection of sketches and pictures which are the fruit of his study in that country. This paper is called "A* Artist m Japan," and is taken up with the vivid first impressions which that country makes on an artistic temperament. The leading article in the April St. Nicholas is undoubtedly Mr. Stedman's paper on " New York"—and a most worthy-leader it is. Every New-Yorker, young and old, may here learn civic pride; and wnat resident of the great city has too much of that desirable quality? Until young New-Yorkers shall have an intelligent loyalty and devotion to their home, there can be no reform of those evils to which Mr. Stedman— in anything but a spirit of fault-finding— judicially calls attention. The high lights of the April Century are Anarchists and Arbor Day. The number opens with a notable article on "The Chicago Anarchists of 1886," being a review of their crime, trial, and punishment, written by Joseph E. Gary, the judge who presided at the trial. Judge Gary takes as his motto these words from his charge to the jury, "And the law is common sense." The paper will stand for all time as an authoritative record of this celebrated case. It is illustrated with portraits of the judge, the prosecuting attorney, the jury, inspectors ?/r- p ,°. Bonflel(J and Schaack and Captain William Ward, and also by striking full- page views of incidents carefully drawn by Castaigne from descriptions of eye-witnesses. There are also reproductions of. the anarchist handbills and sketches of explo sives found in the possession of the prison- Livermore Independent: Mrs. G. H. Norton went to Algona Tuesday to visit her daughter Mrs. B. G. Hough came from Irvington last Friday to spend a few days at the old home Mrs. Grose and her sister, Miss Lou Hunt, went to Bancrdft Tuesday Wallace Taylor 'is home from Algona this week. The Corwith Crescent is authority for^the statement that a man named Beisell of that place has a scheme for draining upland ponds that is certainly new to most people. He drills a hole m the bottom of the pond down to the stratum of sand, from 'which the flowing wells of that section are obtained, and lets the water down and out. Emmetsburg Democrat: Prof. Rummel has invited the principals <of the Algona and Spencer public schools to co-operate with him in getting up an oratorical contest to be held in this city, but we are told that they do not feel at all anxious to take part in it. Emmetsburg has a chip on its shoulder. Algona and Spencer dare not knock it off and Emmetsburg has money that says so. Come now, here's an opening. Spencer News: The opera house project is-developing favorably. At the meeting Friday nigbt about §10,000 of stock was subscribed.

Judge Holmes of Des Moines has decided that church property not used for church purposes must pay taxes. The Monticollo Express says: Mr. Fritz Dodon sold his 80 acre farm near the Cass township line to Harm Dirks, and then purchased of Henry Stutt, last Tuesday, 100 acres of the old Perrine farm near Langworthy for $70 per acre. Alexander Leon, the first foreigner naturalized in Iowa, died at Dubuqwe last week. Ho came to Dubuque in 1833. Bishop Perry of Davenport has published over 70 volumes. He has done more literary work than any Iowa man. C. A. Weaver has severed 'his connections with the Webster City Tribune, A movement is on foot for a railway from Kiuthven to Jackson, Minn. It will cross Dickenson county. Hurt Monitor: Thos. Hanna has material on the grounds for the immediate erection .of a fine dwelling house. A brakeman, J. A.

Lu Verne News: George Hanna and his daughter, Genie, started for Sioux City Tuesday. Miss Genio will remain there and attend school. who were not present at that meeting —which constitutes the great majority of our inhabitants—and ascertain what more can be raised. IEt was voted not to begin to build until $20,000 is subscribed, and also decided that if the required amount cannot be raised by the first of May to abandon the project. Emmetsburg Democrat: Bro. Mayne of Algona became the father of a boy the other day and they say the Republican is to be enlarged at once. Success to the editor and the boy Last: week Henry Watterson wrote a pointed article on the civil service question and the Ft. Dodge Times copied it and credited it to the Algona Courier. If Hinchon had a pair of spectacles, he could pass very well for Watterson. Sheriff Graham of Algona will make his mark before long. He was in Montana last week looking for :an escaped scoundrel. Webster City has the champion goose hunter if the following story from the Tribune is reliable: That veteran goose-killer, W. W. Wells, now over 70 years of age, is still "in it." He slipped out Monday afternoon and fired three shots from his Winchester rifle. Result—four dead wild .'geese! No one questions Mr. Wells' right to championship. In his younger One of the haost interesting events of the spring season will be the high school contest Friday evening at the opera house. We have noticed the reports from Carroll, Montk'ollo, and other contesting towns, and they hidl cate that great interest is being taken in the local competitions as well as in the final meeting at Grinnell. Two years ago Algona won the gold meda' at Monticello when Miss Lizzie Wallace went down, and a year ago at Creston Miss Bertha Hancock received very high praise. This year we believe the school will be very excellently repre >sented, and much interest will be taken in the contest Friday evening. The programme and a full statement of how the contest will be conducted are given by Prof. Dixson. It is only necessary to add that the positions of the speak ers were selected by lot, and that the judges will be disinterested parties 'from outside of' Algona, wholly unacquainted with any of the contestants Prof. Dixson says: An oratorical contest participated in by members of the high school will be held at the opera house on Friday evening the 7th inst., for the purpose of selecting a delegate to represent tho school in the state oratorical contest to be held at Grinnell, April 21. The contestants have been drilling faithfully upon the selections and we are assured that an interesting programme will be presented. A special feature ol the occasion will be a wand exercise by a largo class of high school pupils, who are in training. All are cordially invited. Following is the programme: Invocation Rev. W. E.

The third prize will be a book valued and he apparently fell. His brother jurst in a window thinking that something could be done to rescue him, but the heat was so intense that he was badly burned and could do nothing. Of the brave, honest, true hearted man that entered his doomed house bent on saving his loved ones, nothing remained but the charred and blackened trunkj which was recovered about midnight. The family had left the house early in the evening, and was at the residence of the father of the deceased near by. DEATH OF MBS. Q. S, WEIGHT, Her Strength Insufficient After the Surgical Operation — The Funeral This Afternoon at 2 o'clock. We are pained to record this week the death of Mrs. G. S. Wright of West Bend, whose illness we have mentioned in preceding issues. As we have before stated she had a shock of paralysis March 9, which necessitated the amputation of the right leg, which was done March 16, after which she steadily improved and seemed to be gaining strength and with good prospects of full recovery. But on Saturday last she had a chill and fever after which she sank rapidly until she died Monday night April 3. The limit of her vital force had been reached and was unable to sustain her longer. Mrs. Wright was born at WilUamstown, Birkshire county, Mass., June 12, 1836, hence she was nearly 67 years of age, and was married to G. S. Wright Fob. 18, 1863, since which time she has lived at Elclridge, N. Y., near Syracuse, until her removal to Iowa nearly six years ago. Quiet and unassuming in manner, she yet possessed a force and determination of character which made her much beloved and respected by those coming in contact with her. She was deeply interested in moral and religious upbuilding and was an active member of the W. C. T. U. of West Bend. She became a Christian in girlhood and united with the Baptist church in Eldridge, N. Y., and upon the organization of the Baptist church at West Bend became one of its constituent members, being always a conscientious, faithful Christian. A true and loving wife, a kind, patient and wise mother, and an affectionate, trusted friend, her loss will be deeply felt. She leaves her husband and three children to survive her, tho children being Charles G., L. Rose, and Miriam A., all of West Bend. She has still living two brothers John L. Cole of Seattle, Wash. , and Porter R. Cole of Wilhamstown, Mass., and one sister, Mrs. Susan C. Munson of Troy, N. Y., the latter of whom was with her in her last hours. ac- the The award shall be determined cording to the rules governing state contest. The patrons of the school and others will be waited upon by pupils with tickets for sale, and we hope they will meet with a liberal response. We would like to send the full quota of delegates to the state contest if possible, Heretofore we have not been able to pay the expenses of two.

No more pleasant and profitable anniversary is observed than Arbor day. The annual leaflet for 1893 is issued, and the schools of the state will generally have some special observance, besides planting trees where they are needed. In this leaflet Supt. Knoepfler says: Tho custom of setting apart a day for tree planting and decoration of the school grounds originated in Nebraska; but the celebration of Arbor day planting and dedicating trees to memory of distinguished and the Exercises begin the coming legislature, and a full report by I M, and C.

It is reported that he will be an applicant toe tho pHnoipalehip of the Sheldon schools at days he once killed thirteen geese with twelve successive shots of his rifle—a feat that has never been equalled in this section, and probably never will be.

R. M. Wright, attorney for defendant, with F. M. Ely, reporter, came up from Fort Dodge Friday and took the depositions of eight members of the party who witnessed the occurrence. The plaintiff was represented by Attorney Raymond of Lu Verne, who entered the claim that the caboose was already too full. The great fish that was lately speared in Lake Okobojt and sent to a commission house and which has been on exhibition at Des Moines has occasioned as much interest and curiosity perhaps among the people as any production in natural history that the inland states could produce.

In 1887 attention was called to tree planting in Iowa through the publication of a Forestry circular sent out from the department of public instruction. Following this custom, which has been continued through these successive years, we name the date of April 28, 1893, for the celebration of such a programme as can be carried out in all schools, and designate for special study the birds of Iowa! Through these exercises lessons of kindness to animals may be instilled in the hearts of the children of our schools. A HINT TO BBO. EYAff, Ail Easy Way to Settle tho Post- offlce Contest.
