THE GATCH The most important event at Des Mbittes the past week has been the introduction of a republican local option bill by Senator Gatch. The Schmidt bill was defeated by a strict party vote, as jvas known from the beginning. It was followed at once by two other democratic bills for county and city option, and then Senator Gatch presented his bill, which it is said he and Senator Brower will support, with possibly other republicans. This insures its passage in the somite if the democrats will support it. The bill is very strict. Its general outlines are those of all county option bills. Upon the request of two-fifths of the voters of any county a special election shall be held in that county to pass on licensing saloons. If license does not carry the present law remains. Another election .can be had in three years, and after that once in five years. If license carries saloons may be established in such townships only as voted for the license. The saloons shall pay $600 to the county and such additional sum as- the town in which they run shall decide. Applications for permits shall be to the district court, shall state where the saloon will be located, shall be signed by the owner of the property, and by a majority of the adjacent property owners to a distance of 200 feet, and in case anyone protests against granting the permit the court shall hear the evidence. A bond of $6,000 is demanded, and the strictest regulations are provided against selling to drunkards or minors, near school houses, etc. The provisions of the bill are taken from all the license laws now in force in other status, and there is no doubt that as a local option bill it is the best yet devised in Iowa. It is unlikely that the bill will puss the house, though some republican votes are expected for it. The only way of judging of the merits of this bill is by its probable effect in our own locality. At a non-partisan election Kossuth would undoubtedly vote against license. We should then have just the law we have now, the only difference being that the struggle •would produce all kinds of local discord. In three years the row would be repeated. But if Kossuth voted for license, towns and townships in it would have prohibition, because saloons can only go whore the majority is for them in ihis general election. This would produce internal dissensions for three years worse than the other way. In either case local option means rows and trouble, and we believe would be a bad law. This law, like all other local option laws, permits prohibition in some territory. Some laws give it to townships, this one to counties, If prohibition is good in either one, and no infringement on anyone's rights, then it is good for the state, and as long as Kossuth would be pretty sure to have prohibition anyway under local option, wo had much better have it as a state law. tttittD The great combination conference of all reform movements at St. Louis last week was not wholly successful. Up to date there is still a split, and Miss Willard will have a straight-out prohibition party. For awhile it appeared that a grand combination was possible, but somehow prohibition and woman suffrage both were snuffed out from Donnelly's platform, and the ladies had to withdraw. This may be patched up at Omaha, July 4, when the national convention is to be held, and if it is there will bo but one third party with Gen, Weaver or Ignatius Donnelly for president. General Weaver in speaking of the Omaha meeting toaRejister reporter says: " Our convention will be held in Omaha July 4, nnd 1,776 delegates will be present. Just notice the significant number of delegates. It argues success itself. The citi^ zens of Omaha have pledged to raise $75,000 to pay the expenses of the convention. We expect to meet there and nominate the next president and vice president of the United States." The general Is/in high spirits and in his opinion the old par ties will coalesce. He says: "I do not think that the republican party is really In the race, and the democratic party is hopelessly split." But still the fly in the ointment is the perversity of the women. Even Mrs. Lease, she of the steam whistle vooal organ, is dissatisfied, and after the St. Louis conference said: " This action today of the people's party shows that it is as cowardly as either of the old parties. Who put it in power? Who got up picnics and big dinners and barbecues? The women, nnd this is how they have rewarded us for our work." The women must be placated Omaha will be a Waterloo for the form movement. Senator Shields is talked of as the democratic candidate for Col. Henderson's place in congress.

The opening pages have the widely : announced last poem written by James Russell Lowell, entitled "On a Bust of General Grent," which is In the vein of Mr. Lowell's highest patriotism, ranking with the famous "Commemoration Ode." It includes a facsimille of one of the stanzas, showing the author's interlineations. Those interested In art subjects will find two articles appealing to their tastes—the third and concluding paper by W. A. Coffin on " American Illustrations of Today." -M- The Atlantic Monthly for March opens with an article by the Rev. Brooke Herford, the popular Boston clergyman, on "An Old English Township," In which he embydles In a delightful way the chances and changes of a settlement in Lancashire, Singleton by name, with which Mr. Herford Is familiar, and which shows him at iheart to have all that true English love of the country which is almost a national characteristic. Mr. Crawford continues bis serial of Italian life, and Miss Hapgood has a vividly-written paper on Russian travel called "Harvest-tide on the Volga." -M- The March Century is particularly Interesting to the many thousands who have constituted the audiences of the famous Polish pianist, Paderewsld, in different parts of the United States. The frontispiece Is an engraving of Paderewski from a photograph, add in addition a drawing of Irving R. Wiles' Is given, showing the great virtuoso at the piano. Accompanying these pictures are "A Critical Study," by the distinguished American pianist and composer, Wm. Mason, "A Biographical Skotch," by Miss Fanny Smith, and a poem by R. W. Gilder, entitled "How Paderewski Plays." -»•-*The March number of St. Nicholas contains a novel and useful sketch by John M- Elllcott of the navy describing how a land- Ing Is made through the heavy surf of the Pacific ocean.

CONGRESSIONAL MATTERS. The Emmetsburg Reporter disposes of the rumor that Judge Carr will be a candidate for congress. Speaking with authority from him it says that "he has not been, is not now, and will not be a candidate, and that he is warmly in favor of Mr. Dolliver." It adds that the prevailing feeling in Palo Alto is for Dolliver, and that the county will be for him in the convention. Judge Carr's name has been often spoken of in connection with the congressional nomination, and had he allowed its use a vigorous support would have Tolled up in the district for him. But his refusal removes the only competitor of Mr. Dolliver likely to cut much figure in this section, and the delegations here will probably follow the example set by Palo Alto. There has been but little discussion of the matter in Kossuth, but we learn of no organized opposition to our present congressman, while he has many active and influential friends. Senator Allison says that Gov. Boies would not carry Iowa If he were candidate for the presidency. Carl Snyder, who is now editorial writer on the New York World at $75 a week, has an interesting letter in Sunday's Register on Iowa men in New York. The Messenger figures up the improvements at Fort Dodge'during 1891 at $305,000. Fort Dodge Is on the high road, and is destined to be a big city. Representative Chase hns a bill for the resubmission of the prohibitory amendment. The democratic Chicago Herald sits down on Blaud's free silver bill, and says his report "is such a confused jumble of negatives and affirmatives that one can hardly make out what the author's fundamental principles are in this branch of economic science, or whether he accepts any economic principles of any kind." The Pooahontas Record nominates Dolliver to succeed Senator Jas. F. Wilson. IF THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Corwith has a society of Dunkards who are building a church. Corwith Crescent: Mr. Plumley of Algona is in our city figuring on building a house on his farm, three miles north of Corwith, 16x20 with 9-foot posts. When the Capital City Opera house burned at Des Moines a few weeks ago the Augusta Ohstrom company were playing there. They lost their entire outfit. Elmore Post: Miss Belle Randall, a teacher in the John McLaughlin district, visited at her home in Algona from Saturday until Tuesday. She took vacation Washington's birthday. Eagle Grove Gazette: J. E. Willey of LuVerne is visiting his sister, Mrs. E. M. Glasgow. Mrs. J. E. Stacy of Algona has also been visiting her Mrs. J. C. Heckart returned Monday from Algona, where she has been the past week on. account of Mr. Heckart's aged mother being quite sick. Hampton Recorder: We call attention of the readers of the Recorder to the advertisement of Henry A. Clock's new store in the Beed block, which is now open and ready for business. Mr. Clock, although he comes from Algona here, is not a stranger to our people, as he was for about eleven years with his brother H. C. in his store at Geneva and sold goods for five or six years at Latimer since, so that it will be nothing new to many Franklin county people to trade with him. He will be found to be a pleasant man to deal with and will get his full share of trade. The Port Dodge Messenger gives our new citizen, J. J. Ryan, a farewell shot on some of his political promises: " Before Jimmy Ryan loaves the county we wish he would make one more effort to tax the 'mineral reserve.' Oh, Jimmy, Jimmy, what a base deceiver you were! You trifled with the affections of this confiding people; we told them so, but you got there just the same. Now because there is a little more money somewhere else, you go off and leave them, and abandon all the immortal issues which have made your name historic. It looks now as though mineral reserve and Pullman cars would go on untaxed and unvexed for- nimi* *' In a letter to the Monticello Express C. M. Doxsee writes of several matters of interest on his trip south. Among others he discusses darkey education as seen at Nashville: The colored people are not forgotten, as there are two colleges for their education, supported by northern capital and conducted by northern teachers. Returning one afternoon from a visit to the Vander- bllt university—which by the way is the largest In the city, and is surrounded by beautiful grounds, generously covered with fine shade trees—I engaged in conversation with an old resident of the city and Inquired what the large building was on our right, not far from the " Vanderbilt." "That sah, is the Roger Williams university, one of them nlggah schools. We want to get wid of that so we won't have any nig- gahs in this pa't of town. These nig- gah schools are all kept up by no'the'n capital and run by no'the'n teachahs; nobody in the south will teach a niggah. The schools do moah ha'm than good, for as soon as he gets a little education the niggah goes off and steals oh does something to get in jail. Juss look at our pwisson, sahl Over 1800 cwiminals and only 800 or 400 of them white." I interrupted him at this point to suggest that possibly with a jury made up of white men it was easier to convict a " niggah" than a white man, which might account in part for this unequal proportion. Wishing to satisfy myself from personal observation in regard to these " niggah schools" and their in- ever. • 3TOU 1TUTU1U5 CONSIDERATION. J. S. Clarkson made two suggestions in his address on Lincoln which are worthy of more than passing notice. One was removing the postofflues from national politics and leaving them where they belong, in local politics. The other was electing United States senators by popular vote. The first has no immediate interest because Iowa can do nothing to bring about the change. But in view of a senatorial contest here in two years the second may become very important. It is unlikely that the laws of the state will be changed by that time, or that a senator will be elected other than by the legislature. But the spirit of the change may and we believe should be adopted by the republicans. The candidate for The democratic Chicago Times cites official figures which put the production of pig iron In this country at 1,000,000 tons more than in Great Britain the past year. "What poor snobs we are," says Sam. Clark. " Democratic papers all over Iowa talk of Miss Jessie Boies as the ' first lady of Iowa 1 because she Is the governor's daughter. What nonsense thutis. Every woman in Iowa is the first lady In Iowa to those who love her." Gen. Dodge of Iowa said in Washington that President Harrison has more friends among the people than any president since Lincoln. Algona's Fame Abroad, Llano, Texas, News: " The Algona" Hotel is nearly finished. The wood work on the third floor has been oiled and varnished, and the furniture is being placed in position. The painters are now at work on the second floor and the first floor is being whitened and will be turned over to the painters in a few days. This is one of the handsomest hotel building in the state During the week Mr. W. T. Campbell of Lampasas purchased four lots in Llano, three on the south side of "The Algona" plaza and one on Tarrant street. fluence, I made a special trip to the Fisk university, the largest colored school in the city. The school had just closed for the day, and the good behavior of the well-dressed scholars coming from the school would not indicate that they were criminal buds. The school is in a highly prosperous condition and crowded to such an extent that new buildings are necessary to accommodate its university students. It was a noticable fact that in Nashville I saw more well dressed colored people than in any other city I have yet visited, which must be accounted for in part by the educational atmosphere of the city. NORTHERN ENTERPRISE IN ALABAMA. In northern Alabama, where the hills and mountains are so < numerous that agriculture could not be followed without introducing the "shot-gun policy" in planting the crops, providence has wisely supplied the deficiency in this respect by storing up the richest mineral wealth to be found in the south. At Birmingham, which has been built and is supported by the iron mines in the immediate vicinity, I spent a very interesting day. The city has a population of some 40,000 people and in appearance, thrift and push is a typical northern city. It has been built in the last eight years and mostly with northern capital. There are some 27 iron furnaces in the vicinity running . off 2,600 tons per day. There are large coal mines where the convict labor of the state is employed. The prisoners are divided into four classes according to their sentence, the first class being required to mine and deliver four car loads of coal per day, the second class three, the third class two, and the fourth one. The state is paid $19 per month for the first class, and proportionately less for the others. The city lies in a valley, has wide paved streets, fine brick and stone buildings, electric and motor cars, and I am told gets as hot in summer as an iron furnace. The hog is a resident of the city with all its dearth of vegetable growth and seems I age of cotton another year. It seems strange that In this part of the country, 1 have not heard it charged that the McKlnley bill is the cause of the depression in the prices of cotton. I can account for it In no other way than that the democrats are always sure of success, and that when it comes to argument they use something more convincing than a charge of." McKin^ ley bill." "BLOODED STOCK" IN THE SOUTH. The hog becomes more lawless the further south we go, and is allowed to wander round at random, loaf about the train and fatten on whnt scraps and orange peel the tourist may happen to throw away. The cows have become adapted to their environments and are developed like race horses: they have to travel so far between blades of grass every day. While the country mule or ox never realizes what hay is except at Christmas time and even then his Christmas present, is very small indeed. The farmers—so called—use anything as a beast of burden that has four feet. It is not an uncommon sight to see a mule and an ox hitched together, and in one place I noticed a liitle calf drawing a large two-wheeled cart. Every yard and farm is fenced to keep the animals out instead of in, for all animals have the free use of the street. OLEYELAND AND HILL. New York World, (Dem.): Senator Hill secured yesterday a delegation from this state favorable to his nomination for the presidency. The February point in this game of politics has been scored, but what about the far greater contest in June? Congressman Springer of Illinois says: It would be folly for other states to insist on Cleveland's nomination, when his own state unanimously declared for another. If Cleveland's name is to be presented to the national democratic convention, it must be presented by his own state. New York Herald, (Dem,): All this show of power is well enough in its way but the party of the state has a very bitter feud on its hands and the aggressive policy of Mr. Hill has excited a degree of opposition which renders him uncertain for himself though it drives Cleveland out of the field. New York Times, (Dem.): The democratic convention at Chicago, will not nominate Mr. Hill. It is conceivable that the convention may "go west" for its candidate or south, or to the Pacific coast. It it comes east or to New York it will call for a man better known and more respected than David B. Hill. Henry Watterson, Kentucky's great democrat, says he is against H'illin any event, and adds: " Mr. Cleveland is no longer a possibility. His selection as the democratic standard bearer, if such a thing were under the circumstances conceivable, would be on the part of the national democracy an act of deliberate suicide. He could not be elected, and we are so sure of his good sense, as well as his dignity of character, that we have no idea that he will allow his name to go before the national democratic convention. A Washington correspondent writes to the Pioneer Press: In view of the rapidly growing belief among the loading democrats in congress from every section of the country that it would be unwise to nominate either Hill or Cleveland under the circumstances, dark and "likely colts" from now stables are being trotted out. Senator Palmer of Illinois was mentioned more frequently today than any other presidential quantity in the new stables of the democratic party. Gov. Boies of iowa is not often named by anyone outside of his own state. Ex-Gov. Campbell of Ohio is looming up, and it is believed by many that he has been chosen by ex-President Cleveland to inherit the strength of that aspirant, and that Mr. Cleveland will try to defer his fol- tit f AS lowing to the Ohioan. It will be remembered that Gov. Campbell in his campaign last year took the advice of Mr. Cleveland and boldly fought free silver, and made his issue the tariff, boutnern senators are mentioning the name of Senator Carlisle, but he is not considered seriously by democrats from northern or western states. THE MEMBEBMFKOM ZOSSUTH. John Q. Smith Is Taking an Active Part In Legislative Doings . W. Uftftlett Writes Briefly Texas as H* Vleifrs It-How Land is Described. We noted last week that j. W. lett had gone to Texas, and this week we publish a short extract from a letter that will interest his many friends in Kossuth. It Is written from Dallas; 1 came down here on the 12th inst, with a view to the management of the business In this state, where the New England Loan & Trust company begad doing business last November. I Ukg it pretty well, though I am a " widder," my family remaining at Kansas City. This Is the hardest place to do bust- ness I have ever tried, because the descriptions are so Irregular, a north and south or east and west line being almost unknown, and the variation is all around the compass. This city Is so crooked (I mean the streets) that it is almost impossible for a stranger to find his way, so bad in fact that I carry a pocket compass to determine whether the sun is coming up or going down, and to add to the confusion the streets are. named both ways instead of being numbered one way. The land descriptions are terrors,'as no such thing as section, township and' range exists, everything being -described as, for instance, "John Smith's survey, Abstract No. 1, Pat., etc., deV scribed as follows: Beginning at a pblttt on the northeast line of Tom Jones' survey, E. 46 degrees, N. from, etc., thence North 475 varas to a Stake, thence E. 475 varas to an ash marked T. J., thence S. 476 varas to the north corner of Tom Jones' survey, thence W. 475 varas to beginning"—that roughly describes a 40 acre tract, 1,900 and eight-tenths varas being one mile. The above sample would be a very simple one; this makes it very hard to examine the lands, and to examine the titles, which are very long and erroneous. It has been so warm today that everybody took the shady side of the street, and I am now writing at a wide-open window. I saw peach trees in blossom today and plenty of pansies, and the dooryards are getting green. The people, so far as I have met them, are quite pleasant, and I have made a good many acquaintances. I wear my G. A. R. button without comment, except thaU|] they look surprised when I say I was ii private. I have a captain of the Confederate army for an examiner, and one of our best correspondents was a general, while one of my best friends in business was a colonel. I hear there are a few of them who have not heard that . the war is over, but. the large majority fraternize as cordially as thi. most loyal northern man could wish; that is, of course, as it should be, but our people do not understand it so. Well, I am going to bed.

Ryan Becomes an ' Algonlan—A Republican Send-off from His Former Home. The announcement that the numerous visits of J. J. Ryan to Algona had culminated in a permanent location here was made Thursday last. He has been for two terms county treasurer of Webster county, and is one of the leading men of Fort Dodge. The Messenger noting his removal says: The people of Fort Dodge and Webster county will be sorry to learn that they are about to lose one of the county's "favorite sons." J. J. Ryan announces his intention of going to Algona to engage in the real estate business. He has made arrangements with Hon. C. L. Lund of that place to take half interest in the land and loan business conducted by the latter. This combination cannot fail to be a successful one. Mr. Lund is known all over the state as one of the most wealthy and successful farmers of the northwest. He has been called upon to serve in the state legislature, and was one of the, democratic' candidates for railway commissioner two years ago last fall. He is, perhaps, the most popular man in Kossuth counl ty and has been carrying on a success-H ful land business at Algona for several vears - Mr. Ryan will take into the i firm all the abilities of an all round rustler for business together with such a large reserve of energy, enterprise and good fellowship as cannot fail to be appreciated by the people of Kossuth county.
