What the senate will do with the bill passed by the house on " innocent purchasers" is the question of moment, and over it a hot debate is likely to occur. Sentiment is divided. Some favor the house bill, which destroys the negotiable quality of all notes. Some oppose all bills on the ground that if a man signs a note he should pay it, and not come around afterwards and claim that he didn't know what he was doing. Some favor a middle course, as outlined by the house committee's bill, which classes all notes given to peddlers, patent right men, insurance men, etc., by themselves, and allows the maker to set up any just defense he may have against any holder, whether "innocent purchaser" or not. This latter position is likely to find favor with the more conservative, and if any bill passes it will embody their ideas. The history of the matter, in view of the wide-spread interest in it, is important to all who desire to discuss intelligently what the legislature is doing. The original bill was introduced by Mr. Wyckoff, and was almost as sweeping as the bill finally adopted by the house. It was referred to the agriculture committee, which recommended its passage, and after a fight it was sent Albany was not alone Monday in holding a political meeting of interest. At St. Loms the representatives of several labor and reform organisations gathered to formulate the platform of a new party. Donnelly, Weaver, Powderly, Miss Willard and a host of other well-known advocates of special reforms were present Discussing Senator Finn s action in knocking his slanderer down, the Dnbuque Telegraph (Dem.) very fairly the charges against Finn were , there is much excuse for him, for while he acted unlawfully he certainly acted naturally. No newspaper man has the right to publicly prefer such accusations as Belvel preferred against Finn except on undoubt ed proof; and if Belvel made his attack in the absence of such proof, and on mere suspicion and rumor, he got no more than he deserved. It is an abuse of the freedom guaranteed to it to use the press to unjustly and wantonly assail the character of anv man, whether he be in public or private station, and those guilty of the abuse are entitled to but little sympathy when they are made to suffer for their offense." port. As Harry was hot in heed of that kind of support, he did not join the " gan?" to the next town. COrwith Crescent: Al. Adams of the Humboldt Independent entertained the editors at the Algona banquet the other week in a true Josh Billings style, then returned home, fell down cellar and dislocated his shoulder, as we learn from the Humboldt Blade. It seems that comment is unnecessary The Algona papers publish liberal excerpts from the editors who were at the winter meeting. It was a good advertisement for Algona, and they earned and deserve it.

The Curious and Interesting Sights to be Seen in This Subterranean Way— Some Early History. W. W. Wheeler of Algona writes Attorney Sketch of Jackson as to the prospects of collecting notes against Jackson county farmers for " fence privi- ledges," said notes now held by innocent purchases. Mr. Sketch replies that "an innocent purchaser (?) has a job on these notes, and I am under the impression he'll find it dear business to invest in them." One of Massachusetts' prominent democratic congressmen says that the democratic committee gave «1,500 to assist the last campaign of the prohibitionists. His letter was called out by an attack by Helen M. Cougar. . Harrison's administration $259,000,000 of the national debt. has paid to the judiciary committee. Here the Harriman bill was substituted and reported. This bill is as follows: Sec. 1. Whenever the signature to any negotiable instrument has been obtained by fraud, such fraud may be pleaded by the maker against the holder or any assiiraee thereof. Sec. 2. All notes taken by any peddler or transient peddler for the purchase price in whole or in part, for any patent, patent right, patent medicines, lightning rods goods, wares, or merchandise, and all notes taken by any insurance agent for the premium on any policy of insurance shall, in addition to a statement of the amount due or to become due thereon, contain a statement of the face of all such notes that said note or notes are given for the purchase price of such patent, patent right, patent medicines, lightning rods, goods, wares, or merchandise, or for the premium of such policy of insurance, and all persons who may afterward become the owners of such note or notes, whether before or after ma turlty, shall be deemed to have become possessed of such note or notes, and notices of all defenses and equities against the same -whether for fraud or failure of consideration, and any peddler or insurance agent who shall take and receive any note or notes for the purchase price of 'any such patent, patent right, patent medicines, lightning rods, goods, wares, or merchandise, or for the premium on any policy of insurance without writing or having stated on the face of such note or notes the consideration for which the same is given as herein set forth, shall be deemed guilty of a felony, and on convietion thereof shall be punished by imprisonment in tho' penitentiary not more than five years, or by imprisonment in the county jail for a period of not less than three months nor more than one year, or by a fine of not less than fifty dollars nor more than one thousand dollars, or by both such flno and imprisonment. By a vote of 50 to 44 this bill was de- The Carroll Herald says: There is talk of Judge Carr of Emmetsburg and Capt Albert Head of Jefferson for delegates from the big Tenth to the national convention. They are both active convention workers. Gov. Boies' significant failure to mention the silver question at Denver is followed by evidence in congress that Iowa democrats are not preparing to endorse the free silver platform. In late interviews Butler says he shall stand by the Bland bill, but Judge Hays is outspoken against it. He says: " I am opposed to free coinage of silver until we can have a bi-metallic international agreement, and shall vote against the Bland' bijl in consequence. If we are to have free silver coinage I want to see 100 cents worth of silver made into a dollar. Unless we get that or an international agreement I shall oppose all attempts at free coinage." OONGBESSIONAI POLITICS. A Rumor from Emmetsburg that Judge Cnrr Would Accept a Republican Nomination. We give the following telegram from Emmetsburg to the Minneapolis Journal, dated Feb. 19, without comment. Time will disclose what it amounts to: Yesterday Hon. M. D. O'Connell and Mr. Parsons of Fort Dodge were here interviewing Judge Carr of this city in relation to his candidacy for the position of representative to congress from the Tenth congressional district. Hon. I' i. £ M Ver ' th ?.P 1>esen t incumbent, has held the position for two terms His Fort Dodge friends and admirers are fully satisfied that he could not be re-elected again this fall and -Judge Carr has expressed a desire to allow his name to come before the convention If he is nominated he will have a strong support throughout the northern poi? "on of the district, and especially in his judicial district. The district 1ms a large republican majority, but the democrats of the district are deter* mined to place a popular and well-qualified man in the field. There is a large immigration of actual settlers, comine- from various localities, the majority of whom are democrats. The present movements of the leaders of the republican managers are being closely watched by the democrats. ^ 08ei y The senate has appointed a committee to investigate the charge that senators were caught by the police in a house of prostitution. The investigation should be thorough. A democratic congressman named Harter told his brethren last week that if they did not drop free silver they would be buried beyond hope of resurrection. Every effort was made to call him down, but he held the floor and gave the free silverites a great drubbing. THAT NEW BAILBOAD. Where It IB to Run-Thls la the latest Authentic Report. The Fairmont, Minn., News has an interview with E. M. Felkley of Armstrong Grove, who reports everything as booming and that the new railroad which is at present being surveyed through a portion of northern Iowa ami will be finished in a few days as far west as Estherville, will be a live reality before next fall. It will run from east to west nearly on an air line crossing the Northwestern road, which runs north and south through Winnebago & a ?i° Ut four miles north of Bancroft, thence west within a mile of Swea postofflce, and a few miles north of Armstrong Grove, thence to Estherville. A town site is laid out about five miles northwest of Armstrong Grove which is within two miles of Mr. Felk- Traveling over the L. «fc N. By. from Louisvilie to Nashville a carwindow observer might gain the impression that the people of Kentucky raised nothing but whiskey and caves—but I am told that farther east towards theiinterior of the state, in the famous blue grass region, can be found the finest farms in the United States, but they are so valuable that only a distiller or a cave owner can think of indulging in the luxury of even dreaming of owning one. In Edmonson county, particularly where the soil is so thin that the people can raise nothing but the devil, cave-farming is indulged in quite extensively, and from my own personal experience, and from the testimony of those who are equally well acquainted whh the facts, I infer that cave-farming yields a greater return for the expenditure of energy and for the capital invested than any other class of farming. Here is found the Mammoth cave, (and five other lesser caves) that greatest of American wonders—the little black hole in the ground that we used to see pictured in our geographies when school boys, and under which was writ- en, " The Mammoth Cave of Kentucky." My curiosity at that time was arroused, but never before did I realize the true meaning of the word "mammoth" as applied to this great natural curiosity until I had seen it with my own eyes. The temperature of the cave is the same both winter and summer, about 65 degrees, hence it can be visited at either season with equal comfort. Arranging our party at 8 o'clock p. m., which consisted of a gentleman from Philadelphia and myself, we start, each bearing a lantern,, and following our guide we reach the mouth of the cave, about 300 yards from the h'otel. We enter a large vestibule 50 feet high, 70 Chair, frottt Its resemblance to a chair. The Bridal Altar* is formed by three large pillars uniting in such & way as to form a fine arch. There is a nice Kttle romance connected with this altar. A Kentucky belle who had promised her dying mother that she would never marry a man on the face of the earth, found it convenient afterwards to regret the pledge she had made when she had found the man she loved, as most girls do. But she would not break her pledge. She had commenced to think that life was not worth living, when a happy thought took up lodging in the young man's brain. They would go to the cave and be married under the face of the earth. The young lady was overjoyed at the solution of the problem and their hearts were made one under the arch of the bridal altar. Since then several marriages have been solemnized in this place. At this point our guide indulges in a little humor, that to him must flavor somewhat of" chestnuts." He remarks that if he had charge of the cave he would allow no marriages there, as it looked too much like running marriage into the ground. We retrace our course and again enter the main cave. We feel as if we ought to lift our hate and lower our voices as we pass the Giant's Coffin, 40 feet long and 20 feet wide. It looks so natural with its great stone cover, one feels that some great departed ruler of the cave might lie sleeping there. About 300 feet beyond the Giant's Coffin the main cave turns at an acute angle, forming a magnificent amphithe- atre. The apex at this angle is marked by McPherson's Monument—a rude pile of stones. There are some 300. or 400 of these monuments in different parts of the cave, built up by tourists in honor of various individuals, societies, states, etc., some reaching to the chooses to, monument pits, one 175 feet deep, eight ihtee rivers, two lakes, and < We make our exit about 11 having traveled seven miles < ground, and the remainder of theS ^ in dreams, I was looking down ft! "bottomless pits," pasting o Coffin and trying to escape the Im trable darkness. There are sceneffi i A n. rtanasi** «»..a ," I that to behold, over-awe a person and such an impression upon his mind' to attempt a description of them mere words seems like a libel and « n tirely improper. Such are my feellto, toward the Mammoth cave. You m not describe it and you cannot uhds, stand its vastness, its beauty, its mST tery unless you see it yourself. ,. ' , „ . C. M.

SENATOE HAQEB OP ADAIB, He Receives Great Applause forHli Prohibition Speech—An Extract, The most eloquent speech in the senate debate on prohibition was by the young member from Adair county, Sea- ator Hager. The Capital says: "T^ young senator had not spoken three minutes until he had the attention ol every auditor present, including \fo fellow senators, and held it to the eui His manner of speech is earnest, U- voice clear and ringing. He me^ every condition and demand of accept able and popular speech. Verily there Hold of re- feated, and a substitute for the Wyokoff bill introduced by Speaker Mitchell was carried: Sec. 1. In all actions brought upon promissory notes, contracts, or agreements mado alter the taking effect of this act, the defendant may plead any defense which might have been plead against the original holder of said pnper. The senate has the matter in charge. It will not probably pass this house bill. It may pass a bill like the Harriman bill and return it to the house. NEW YOUK FOB IIII.l,. The New York state convention met Monday, the protests of the Cleveland wing of the democracy wore heard, and delegates pledged to D. B. Hill W ere chosen without opposition. They are instructed to vote by the unit rule, and the resolution for Hill was: Tho delegates selected by this convention are instructed to present to tho national democratic convention tho name of David B. Hill, a democrat who has led his party from victory to victory for seven successive years, and who has never known defeat as a candidate for president of the United States. The protest against this mid-winter snap convention was led by ox-Secretaries Fail-child and Whitney, Mayor Grace, and other of the leading democrats of the state. They will hold a separate meeting and issue an address to the state. The most significant feature of this first political event of the year is the permanent retirement of Grover Cleveland. Hill is not sure of the noinina- In the prohibitory debate last week a statement from Mayor Washburne of Chicago was made to the effect that there are 5,000 saloons in that city, all but five of which have licenses. Senator Mack telegraphed to the revenue collector of that district for the number of United States retail licenses issued in Chicago, and word came that there are 9,174. This gives 4,174 unlicensed liquor shops in a license city. The Cedar Rapids Republican's fine appearance these days is causing a flood of compliments. Its new dress, however, does not more than do justice to its meritorious getup in other ways. The Republican is a paper we always peruse with pleasure. Ex-Congressman Sweeney says Boies will prove available presidential timber for the demcrats, and adds: "I deem htm, much more available presidential timber than a number of others whose names are mentioned in that connection. The fact that he has been twice elected governor of Iowa, together with the further fact that he is a man of ability, will arrest the attention and receive pretty careful consideration from the whole country."

On'our left are the roofless remains of two stone huts, which have a melancholy history.

J The Estherville Republican says that quite a feeling in Algona at the present time in favor of taking some steps in the early spring towards the establishment of a permanent public library in Algona, which shall receive some support from funds raised by a citv tax as is now done in so many of the smaller as well as the larger cities of Iowa -Lhe time seems very favoralbe to take some action in this direction, as it is now contemplated to erect a number of new buildings in the spring and it would be easy to plan for some commodious and pleasant library and reading room in which every citiuen of Algona would feel a pride and interest. With this accomblished a librarian could be employed, who should represent the library interests of Algona at the annual meetings of librarians in the state capitol during the time of tho state fair. Thus, interest would be in- fJiH 1 ; fv! lnd1 -?' c o mm unity of interest with other libraries in tho state would bo built up, which could not but reHult in good to Algona and to every town in Kossuth county.

We follow our guide through a narrow passage with stones piled up on either side, the work of the miners who toiled hero during 1811 and 1812 in the saltpeter mines—for valuable deposits of saltpeter were found here at that time, and from these mines m< of the saltpeter;was;furnished in maki gunpowder used during the war of 1812° As we pass along we notice long wooden pipes lying half buried in the ground that were used at that time to conduct the water from tho springs outside to the vats within. Suddenly the roof lifts above our heads and we are in the rotunda of tho main cave, arching over our heads 70 feet high. The main cave most ng tude of the place alone seems enough to have killed a well man in less time. We now reach the Star Chamber, a hall from 200 to 500 feet long, about 70 feet wide and 60 feet high. The ceiling is coated with black gypsum and this is studded with thousands of white spots. Seats are provided at this point for tourists and our guide requests us to sit down and give him our lamps. We do as we are bidden, and he vanishes behind a projecting rock. Manipulating the lights in such a manner that tho reflections fall upon the ceiling, h tells us to look up at the stars. The do ception is perfect, for as we look abov one can imagine ha is looking at th starry vault of heaven, studded with it thousands of stars, not even tho come missing. The wind commences to blow the clouds appear, and soon the stars are covered from sight. At this point is a new Richmond in the publican oratory." Following is a short extract from his ,t^ y^9 speech: "You argue that tho lair 0 '$% J should be repealed because not en- t S',* <1 1 forced. How was it with Gov. Buckner I [ /'j 8 of Kentucky. .Before his message was'\' tm issued it was known that there wero at least three-counties in that state in ' i which the criminal laws had been so f persistently violated that neither life nor property was safe within'their borders. What did the governor do, what \ did^e say in his message to the assembly? Did he recommend the repeal of f these laws because they had been open-' lyand notoriously violated? No. He 1 informed the assembly of their condi-• tion and then advised and directed ' them to take any of the charters of these ' counties and divide the territory up among law abiding counties, and that ^by the eternal, the law of the state of k should be enforced or blood would flow." Not his language, but the sacred meaning, and it was pure and simple Jacksonian democracy.

Mr. President, I can forgive Boies for the speech he made at „„„ York, something over a year ago, now. I recognize the fact that while we honor a man by making him the governor of the great state'we have a right to expect that when he is called beyond its borders to speak that he will be our mouth-piece and speak for the state that has thus honored him, and we have a right to expect that when he was called upon to speak at this banquet, in the greatest city of this nation that he would stand by Iowa and her people, that he would hold up our worth instead of our rags, and that he would speak of our progress instead of our poverty, that he would boast of our growth instead of our decay. But he did not see fit to do so, but tried to make the people of the empire state, a* i well as the people of every state in Al • i_ , * r -— v+ w * vst j OWILU HI this broad union, believe that Iowa farmers had been raising corn at a loss of 07 cents per acre and that they had lost on all the other great products of of their farms.
