The Grange Store, J. E. BLACKFORD, Proprietor. General Merchandise. West state street, =================== ALGONA, IOWA. THE frOBMAtt DEFEATED. The Bill Disposed of Ifi the ilouse I,a9t Friday—We Had Some Good Friends but Not Votes Enough. The Algona normal school contingent came home from Des Moines Saturday, and have Since been busy ' explaining " how it happened." As usiuil the various reasons for defeat gradually blend into one—the lack of votes. The bill in the house received only 45 votes, while to pass it needed 51, or a constitutional majority. It in reality had 46 or 47, for Mr, Dayton's name is counted on the wrong side, and one other mistake is thought to have been made by the tellers. The question came up aa a special order Friday about 11 o'clock. No one opposed allowing the bill to go to the third reading, which brings it to a vote on its passage, and no objection was offered to an amendment being submitted substituting a bill for the locating of three schools by a commission. The debate which followed did not deal with the merits of the substitute, and no one defended it. It was offered to defeat all normal schools, and was so effectually set down on that it is not likely that it will ever again be seriously presented. When the vote was taken it got only 28 ayes to 68 noes. The debate opened with a speech by Lane of Polk county, who said that it is .unwise to establish any more state institutions until we can adequately provide for those we already have. We are limited, too, to a two mill levy, and there is no prospect that these appropriations can be provided for unless we cut down the amounts for the other institutions. The people of Iowa do not want the state to go in debt, and until wo can pay our way for the new institutions we should not build them. Mr. Robinson, the democratic member from Knoxville, answered this and urged the bill, saying that new schools are needed, and that the same money at Algona and Afton would accomplish a great deal more than if spent at Cedar Falls. Briggs of Council Bluffs thought there was no demand for the schools beyond that created by a desire to have a state Institution. There is a lack of students fitted for the normal course. Twenty thousand dollars is all that is asked this year, but as the years go by the amount will increase. More schools are not needed, but better schools are. The adjournment was till 2 o'clock, when Johnson of Bremer county, Kasa of Emmet, aud Boise of Montgomery all spoke for the bill, Dolph of Hardin and Briggs alone opposing. Briggs, in fact, was the opposition largely, making more.speeches than all others together, and each speech more foolish than its predecessor. The closing speech for the bill was by D. C. Chase of Hamilton and was an eloquent and forcible presentation of the case. He snid that the normal school is pre-eminently the school of the common people. Its work joes to aid the common school, and to ___ -- — Mr. Sanford was just recently united in marriage to Miss Ettte McKinney o Stratford. We join B with .the bojB them A Good Line of Spring and Summer Goods Now in Stock, it the sons and daughters of the masses or teaching. He said the common school is the school that the people are nterested in, and that whatever aids ihat and makes it more efficient brings ts blessings to 1 the doors of all. No iner speech has been made on the floor of the house during the session, and the argument was unanswerable. After the substitute was voted down, i motion was made to reconsider the rote ordering a third reading. This al&o was voted down, and the roll was sailed on the passage of the bill. The •oil call was as follows: Yens—Austin, Bitterman, Boise, Car>enter, Chamberlin, Chase, Clark, 3oonley, Crawford, Elliekson, Gillman, Gitchell, Glattly, Goodwin, Guinn, Hariman, Hoover, Hornish, Jay, Johnson, ones, Kasa, Linderman, McCann, Mc- Seeley, Martin, Morrow, Norris, Bobin- on, Saberson, Sells, Shriver, Smith, Sowers, Spaulding, Springer, Stone, Ituntz, Ware, Williams, Wilson, Wyck- ff, Young, Mr. Speaker—45.

Spearman, Steon, Stillmunkss, Van Gilder, Warren, Watkins, Welch, Wilken, Yost—44. There were 11 absent or not voting. Two absent were warm friends of the bill. Many of those not voting were friendly also but felt that there was no money this year for new institutions. Many who voted against the bill gave this as their only reason. The defeat was not directed at normal schools, but was an expression of the opinion given by Mr. Lane that there is no money this year. That new state normals will be established in the near future no one can doubt who is acquainted with the situation at Des Moines. many friends here in wishing them a prosperous and happy journey through life Should the coming spring open up anything like favorable, there will be the largest acreage of small grain sown in this part of Kossuth county that ever was known. . .. Chas. Robinson is now occupying his new residence in Park addition. G. W. Eddy contemplates building a new front to his building which he occupies for the postoffice. The district township of Wesley _ is going to keep up with the procession in this part of the county intellectually at least, while the county is booming financially. It is evident our district township schools will get there too. It was voted at the regular town meet- Ing that algebra shall be taught in our schools. Of course that will do away with a good many teachers that have been teaching in tho sub-district. To meet this advance the board of directors had to raise the wages in order to hire teachers to teach that grade, which will run from $28 to $32 per month. They have also concluded to do away with the library and ordered it sold at the September meeting. The district township of Wesley has got a library and has taken great pains to select good books for it. We do not know why they are going to sell it unless everybody has read and reread it till it is of no further service to them. We are sorry that the independent district of Wesley has no library fund or it might buy it so we all .could have something to read to enlighten our benighted minds. Wesley markets: Wheat, 67c; oats, 20c; barley, 28c; corn, 20@22c; flax, 78c; hay, 53.50 for loose, $4@5 baled; hogs, $4. A man was around last week buying up cows, which he was shipping to Wisconsin for dairying purpones. He bought them all the way from $12 to $21 a head from our farmers. One thing we can't understand is, why cows are so cheap and dairy butter so high. At the prices being paid by our merchants for butter, cows ought to be valuable property. Wm. McCutchin has hauled his hay press over to Irvington, where he has taken u contract to press hay for C. S. Potter. LU VERNE.
