THE 8AL.OON SYSTEM, While it is undoubtedly unfair to denounce the whole saloon system for the •dastardly outrage perpetrated at Mus- catlno last week, that outrage does bring the saloon system into bright light for public inspection, now es pecially that there is a prospect of again legalizing it in Iowa. Its responsibility for an attempt to murder three highly respected "families, whose sole offense 'has been a willingness to assist'in enforcing the laws of Iowa, is still to be determined. There will be plenty of time for special denunciation when all the facts fire known. But such a bumming up of the merits and demerits of the saloon as a place for disposing of alcoholic liquors, as every citizen ought to make for himself, can be made without reference to this occurrence. The time bus come when •every voter should calmly analyze the problem for himself, and if he does the •.•saloon will never again be legally established in this state. The saloon possesses only one distinctive feature as a place for the sale of liquors. It provides for public social drinking. Take that away and there is no reason •for its being. Take that away and it makes no difference whether liquors •are dispensed at drug stores, state agencies, or any other places of business. And this public social drinking is the very feature which nine out of every ten men, whether they believe in prohibition or license, deplore. You may •ask men as they pass and spend the day without finding one who will advocate social drinking at a public bar, or defend it. You will find those who in- .sist that men should not be allowed' to drink at all anywhere, and those who insist that a man should be allowed to buy liquor as he would any commodity and use it as he pleases, but you will find none who stand up for the distinctive feature of the saloon system. That being the case what is there to recommend the saloon system? And why is it that in Iowa no other alternative from the present law is suggested except a return to the public drinking bar? But there is more against the saloon than popular prejudice against the public bar. This prejudice has extended to the whole business and to every person connected with it. While liquors can be sold by druggists or •state agents without exciting criticism, they cannot be sold in saloons and the "vendor hold the esteem or respect of ;his fellow citizens. Whatever the saloon may be in some European countries, it is taboed in the United States. It is not a respectable business place •and never will be, and no man connected with it does or ever will hold a reputable place in society. The inevitable result has been that the men who engage in the saloon business are men who have cut loose from an honor•able ambition. It is true that there are exceptions, and that especially :among citizens who reached maturity an foreign countries where public opinion sustains the saloon, there' are saloon keepers who respect themselves and .their families and enjoy the re- speotof itheir neighbors. But where .there is one of these in this country there are 20 who have joined the lawless .classes, who are the associates of thieves, gamblers, and prostitutes, and whose resorts are the headquarters for violence of all kinds. Anyone who knows anything about the saloon knows that in nine cases out of ten it is opposed to law and order. There is talk about enforcing local option and high license, about early closing and prohibitions on selling to minors and drunkards. These are mere fictions of the brain, no matter what law is enacted. No law which puts any serious restrictions on the drinking resorts of a city like Muscatine will ever be enforced with the consent of the saloon men. These being the ifacts why should the people who do not sympathize with the movement to prohibit the sale of liquor altogether, range themselves continually in support of the saloon system? If they do not honestly favor public drinking resorts as gathering places for the young men, if they do favor the sale of liquor in a respectable business way, free from the association of the lawless and criminal classes, why should they not suggest some other alternative than a system which public sentiment is already strongly against, and which every such occurrence as this at Muscatine damns beyond hope of resurrection. The Swedish or Danish liquor law gof- fers such an alternative. South CaiV lina has adopted this and after July \ all liquors there will be dispensed by state officials under rigid rules. With certain modifications the present law in • Iowa providing for the sale by registered pharmacists is infinitely preferable to tho saloon system as the experience of every such town as Algo- opposed to the conservative temperance Sentiment of the state. The public drinking bar and social drinking resorts have no logical defense and no class of citizens will long assist in maintaining what-they canno't honestly endorse. And all this is aside from the issue of prohibition or no prohibition. It has to do only with the question of how, assuming that liquors are to be sold, they can be best sold in the interests of the community and the state. The German-Americans in Des Molnes have organized and adopted resolutions favoring Col. Eiboeck's appointment as postmaster there. Col. Eiboeck has several times called attention to the fact that citizens of German birth have never received an appointive office in Iowa. G. .Taquo says tho southern hog verifies Father Clarkson's description: "All forward of the ears is snout, and all behind the ears is tall." If you raise one by the oars it is a question which end will hang down. Down at Carroll in the teachers' examination the question was asked: "What is a whaloback and of what service is it to the commerce of Duluth?" The Herald cites this as an example of techincal and "highfalutin" examining, Misses Frances and Grace Lincoln are tho leading singers in the Chicago Lady quartette, singing with great success in Colorado and tho west. Their home is in Fort Dodgo. Tho State Register notes the return of Minister Stevens from Hawaii and says : " Welcome home the patriot." The Register should consult Prof. Stalker. C. M. Junkin very fairly sums up the impressions of tho Iowa party as to the negro in his report of the visit to Fisk university: There are now about 600 students on the rolls of tho school. Perhaps 200 belong in the city and immediate vicinity, and the others come from all sections of the south. And they are a bright looking lot of young men and women, and a goodly proportion are working their way through school, for the colored people are poor. In the work of this university is the most hopeful sign wo have seen for the colored people of the south. We cannot subscribe to the southern idea that the educated negro is the worthless negro. With education will surely come wealth, prosperity and a higher state of civilization, and that is what the entire south needs. Book learning will not give all these blessed boons, but they will come through it. It will take less than the 27 years' experience of Fisk university to demonstrate to the man without prejudice that the colored man is worthy of occupancy of a higher plane than that accorded him in the south, and that the negro is suscept ble to the influences of education and fluement. The teachers and doctors an lawyers and business men which this schoi has sent out are a sufficient answer to th illogical position which most southern peo pie assume on this question. But the flel for the colored man is right here in th south—among his own people, Sam Clark says: " The worst of all pos sible occupations is one you have to depen on politics for." F. G. Cory, after a year and a half wit the Spencer News, retires to take up dail newspaper work in Watertovvn, S. D. H has been one of the best newpaper men this section while with us, and we regre that he is to leave. The News will hold it position under Bro. Richards, who take entire charge of it. zen. Three year* ago he Was the republican candidate for railway commissioner. He has always been an ardent prohibitionist, but never personally abusive to his opponents, and the attack upon his home last week was as aggravated an outrage as was ever committed. Gladstone has offered the poet laureateship of England to John Ruskin. This seems to be in recognition of the • notion that there are no great poets among the younger writers. %ery generation has had an idea that genius became extinct with it. And each succeeding generation has exploded that idea. There are just as great poets today as there ever were, and Gladstone would have done better to have made Kipling laureate than to have given it to Ruskin. _ By one of those unaccountable dispensations those who talked most disparagingly of the proposed photograph of the northern Iowa editors have the most conspicuous places in the group and the best pictures. There is Senator Funk at the top of the column next to reading matter, with the best likeness we have ever seen of him, while Miss Tfain, who bore the heat and burden of gettintr it up, is not on at all. IS THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Isaac Ames is building at Burt. Hanna station is to have a new $650 school house. Dr. Walter Fraser has located at Lu- Verne. Hampton has let the contract for a $20,000 school house. Estherville has changed her opera house into a billiard hall. Will Sterzbach has charge of the Boardtnan -creamery at Emmetsburg. It opens this week. Spencer Reporter: Miss. Etta Case McLuckie, the conspicuous leader in thi Homestead strike, is to lecture in Dei Moines on "Frickism in the Unite. States." Ex-Senator Edmunds opposes Hawaiian annexation. Bishop Hennessy has been promoted anc is now an .archbishop. He remains at Du buque. The world's fair grounds have finally been opened on Sunday. The building will remain closed, but the private exhibit along the Midway Plaisance will run atful blast. The local authorities were compelled to open on Sunday by Chicago sentiment and also by the well-settled conviction tha there is going to be a big loss in connection with the fair, even if they run it seven dayi in the week. It is reported that the Sun day closers will use every effort to have the grounds closed by the courts. Germany is in the heat of one of the mos exciting elections ever held there. The late parliament voted down tho bill for in creasing and maintaining the army. The emperor with his usual lack of sense then announced that if parliament would no sustain him he would do without parlia ment. This election will decide whether t majority can be elected to pass his bill or not. na, where it has been tried, sufficiently provs, saloon system is doomed. It is J. S. Clarkson made an able and statesmanlike address before the young republi cans at Louisville. Nothing better or fairer then his discussion of the negro question has been said by anyone. His advocacy of fixed tenure of ofllce for all government ofllcials, of choosing postmasters by popular elections and of selecting United States senators also by popular vote are all in the lino of. the progressive thought of tho country. ^ In Irving B, Richman of Muscatine President Cleveland has selected one of Iowa's most brilliant young men for a foreign ap pointment. He succeeds Consul Byers ut St. Gall, Switzerland. He has not only the fine scholarship, but also the political expe- ienco needed for excellent service, and ably represent his state and nation.

J. C. Sanders, Wesley's one-time base ball umpire, has been chosen principal of the Traer public schools. He has been at Newell over a year. The Northwestern people are figuring on putting a through train from St. Paul to Chicago via Bancroft. No change is likely to be made this month. Miss Mary Judith Duncombe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John F. Duncombe of Fort Dodge, was married last Thursday to W. S. Kenyon, Bishop Perry officiating. Storm Lake Pilot: A new Baptist church costing $7,000 was dedicated at Algona, April 30. Over $3,000 of debt was wiped out and the house presented to the Lord without a mortgage. Whittemore is credited by Bro. Branigan with being taken in by crayon fakirs. He says they are not entirely out. They will get some experience for their money if not any free portraits. ThePilot says: "The Uncle Tom's Cabin show in this neigborhood was organized recently at Estherville" We don't want Estherville to steal our thunder that way. Algona is responsible for the Uncle Tom show. Emmetsburg Reporter: P. H. Don- Ion, C. M. Henry, W. G. Sterzbach, Thurz and Allie Watson went to Algona Tuesday night to hear Janauschek in Macbeth, and they all came home delighted with the perfection of the entertainment. LuVerne News: We are authorized by a member of the LuVerne baseball nine to say that that organization is now ready to thrash the dust out of anything surrounding towns can produce in the baseball line. Come on with your challenges. Ruthven Free Press: A tornado insurance company has been called toy a Livermore man to pay for a horse that died with the wind colic. The granger claimed the death came under the head of wind storms and wanted his pay at once so he could buy another. Emmetsburg Democrat: THEUlPPER DES MOINES says that the Algona boys are to have a shooting tournament on May 18. They can rest assured that Wilson and Shadboldt of Emmetsburg will be there loaded for bear and that they will not come back with empty hands. Bancroft Register: Presiding Elder Black was at Armstrong last Saturday to take a prominent part in the laying of the corner stone for the M. E. church. At Buffalo Center on Monday he was on the programme in the same capacity. Thus the churches are springing up all over the land. The Democrat says Mr. Jos. Dund- widdie of Burt and Miss Effie Miller of Rodman were married at the Congregational church in Emmetsburg Monday evening, by Rev. Case. They left on Tuesday for Burt, where the groom is engaged in the mercantile business. Mr. Dundwiddie formerly .owned a store it Cylinder, Miss Miller is a sister of Mrs. Ranks and is a very popular young lady. The Democrat wishes Mr. and Mrs. Dundwiddie all the good things ;hat go towards making life happy. Burt Monitor: Burt people turned out in force to attend the grand opera at Call opera house last Tuesday even- 'ng. A pleasant and instructive even- ng was enjoyed by all. The play possessed many grand features and the opera house comp_any did themselves )roud in the pleasing manner that the attendants were entertained, We can only say that all were more than >leased and that they all shall make it a point to attend each attraction that is engaged for their house, provided all is convenient. Blue Earth Post: G. W. Pangburn, ho pioneer attorney of Elmore, made js a pleasant call while in town last Saturday. Mr. Pangburn has been lo- ated at El more for nearly four years \nd in that time has built up a good aw, loan, collection and insurance busi- He has accumulated considerable vhile there, among them we might uention a wife, a good residence and a drge farm. His reputation as a collect- r among the business men of this own is first class. We think he made o mistake when he depided to locate t Elmore. iionable In ft house of worship. The advance agent then went ahead and billed the town as he does all other towns. This caused quite a disturbance and when the troupe arrived they were forbidden the use of the church. The company asks damages and the Spencer papers are filled with communications explanatory of the situation. Eagle Grove Times: The supervisors of Kossuth county have decided that hereafter they will do no road work until provisions have been made for get-* ting rid of surface water. A public meeting was also held at Algona which was participated in by representatives of both town and country. It resolved for draining, wide-tired wagons, a cash tax of 2 mills to be expended by the county, and for the letting of work by contract. It also resolved against hedges along highways. Sheldon Mail: Prof. Simpson is east receiving medical treatment for heart and kidney trouble. He left Sanborn Tuesday evening for Chicago, but was obliged to stop at Algona, from which g lace a physician telegraphed Mrs. impson Wednesday to come at once to him and to come prepared to go with her husband the rest of the journey. Mrs. Simpson went to Algona the same evening. Mr, Simpson has been in poor health for some time, due in a great measure to overwork, and his many Sanborn friends are quite anxious concerning his condition, which, however, is not thought to be very serious as yet. Dick Fields' inventions down at Storm Lake seem to be panning out. The Tribune says: Dr. L. S. Fields has received from the American Inventor's association both a medal and diploma of honor for his original and meritorious inventions. The merit of his Columbian washer, is proven by the numerous orders he has received without solicitation and before it is put on the market, amounting to over $1,600. E. R. Sisson, while in Chicago, got sufficient estimates and data to demonstrate that they can be manufactured with profit, and at most any point where capital may be enlisted for that purpose, but regrets to find the outlook here unfavorable for establishing a factory at Storm Lake, owing to the confused condition of the Novelty company. He has a good offer from Genoa, 111., and a company can be organized at most any other point with ease. It will be too bad if X)ur people should loose any worthy enterprise on account of the misstatements or false representations of strangers, who have come into our midst under glowing recomendations, which elicited the confidence of our people, only to betray them. Whittemore Champ_ion: A party of 18 of the people of this place went to Algona Tuesday evening to see the wonderful Shakesperian actress Janauschek and her " way up" company play Macbeth. The expectations of many seemed to be screwed up to a pretty high pitch. The variety of opinion expressed in regard to the show might fill volumes to say nothing of the remarks about the 2:40 freight service of the Milwaukee road and other interesting features of the trip. We should all felicitate ourselves on the new arrangement of the time card, which permits us to attend the entertainments at the fine new opera house and return the same evening in good season. The return home was enlivened by the practice 'Of the sword exercise of Macbeth and Macduff which was rehearsed frequently for the delectation and instruction of the passengers who were still further greatly entertained by Mayor Boyle's Irish songs which he didn't sing. As to the play we think all unite in judging it well acted by a good company. There is a novelty about the Shakespeare tragedies in the author's peculiarly pat way of putting things, and the scenes of olden times with brilliant costumes which we can readily imagine would please an audience of the time when they were written and they seem to have lost little of their charm in this day and age.

SAFE OBAOKERB AT WOKE. The Freight Depot of the Northwestern Broken Into Monday Night- Three Lead Pencils the Extent of the Booty. The flourishing financial condition of the Northwestern railroad seems to make it a special object of interest to the tramp safe blowers. This term of court settles the fate of those who broke into the depot at LuVerne, and the sheriff had two others yesterday arrested on suspicion of breaking in here Monday night. The discovery was made yesterday morning that the freight depot door was open, and Peter Larson in passing by went in and found the safe door blown off. Investigation showed that the burglars had borrowed tilenford's Uncle Tom's Cabin Openln Had all Immense Crowd Last Saturday, the Balloon Went Up, and the Show Was All the Company Advertised —A Good One on Dwyef. A fine 'day and a big crowd greete Glenford's Uncle Tom's Cabin compan Saturday afternoon and cveuihg, an the boys started on their tour Monda morning with bright prospects an plenty of money. After the wet weath er, bad roads, trouble in getting thei company together, and final disappoin ment over the balloon man, it looked a though fate was against them. Bu their grand opening changed the as pect, and they are out with colors fly ing. They left town with eight teams and are carrying in all twenty-five peo pie. They played at Burt Monday Bancroft yesterday, and today are a Elmore. From there they go nort and west into Dakota, swinging aroun through Iowa and closing at Algon this fall some time. One of the amusing features of th start-out is the story of how they go their balloon man. They had the ba' loon with them when they went to Ea gle Grove, and expected Prof. Dwyer t meet them there. But he failed to ai rive, and he failed also at Humboldt and the people talked of running thet out of town. In the meantime a trave' ing man came to Algona from Hum boldt and reported that while he ha seen balloon ascensions he had neve seen so successful a one as at Humboldl and on the strength of that the paper here announced that the ascensio, would surely take place, etc., etc About this time A. A. Brunson go word that Prof. Dwyer could not b found, and that the balloon ascensio was a hoax. With this he made up hi mind that something must be done, an< he telegraphed to Decorah and foun out that the professor was in town Then he got out a warrant, and will that A. F. Dailey took the Thursda; night train, and Friday returned witi Mr. Dwyer, who had a choice betwee; making the ascent or going to jail o the charge of obtaining money unde false pretenses. He chose to ascend— in fact had intended to join the boys a! the time, but had been detained by bail bond he was out under. But fo this timely action the balloon woul not have gone up at Algona. The general verdict here was tha the boys have as good a show of th kind aa there is on the road. The have a fine band and orchestra, thei dogs and donkey are of the regulatio pattern, and the members of the com pany take their parts well. Little Ev is as good as any anywhere, and all th actors are good. The balloon ascensio was nicely made, and Geo. Kuhn add to the show by his wire walking am contortion tricks. If they meet wit] anything like the reception along th road that they did at Algona they wil be in shape to run a circus next year and their show merits such a receptio much more than the average travelin, company does. Algona will watch wit! interest the success of her "Uncl Tom" company. tools at the Wolf building to pry the depot door open, and then with a heavy iron had knocked the handle off the safe and poured powder into the hole and touched it off. They found three lead pencils in the safe, and the ioko oh them is that the safe was not Io9ked, and could have beon opened by tuvning tho handle. Two loafers were picked up about the depot and arrested by Mclnroe on suspicion. ip Fin EIGHT TO KILL DOGS. Legal Decisions on This Importan Question Digested by theMontlcel lo Express. The question as to just what provo cation is sufficient legally to justify kill ing a neighbor's dog is learnedly dis cussed in two cases recently decided The Nebraska supreme court held tha a dog whose owner had not complied with the law directing him to place on the neck of the dog "a good and sufflci ent collar with a metallic plate thereon on which should be plainly inscribe^ the owner's name," might be kille- without danger of a suit for damage against the one who killed it. The case was aggravated by the conduct of a dog which, it appears, was in the constan habit of attacking people passing along the road. An attempt was made t show on the part of the owner of the dog, that other dogs attacked othe people in passing along the roads, bu the supreme court held that that proof if it had been admitted, would not havi aided the decision of the case. Thi Michigan supreme court has a mon liberal opinion of the privileges of i dog. In that case a Shepherd dog wa killed. The person who did the killing complained that the dog was in thi habit of going about the house, chasing the cats into the trees and barking a night, and that on one occasion the dog was found in the hen house, although the wife of the dog-slayer acknowledged that she only found one egg broken The dog finally, however, walked ovei the newly painted front porch of the man who had already found fault with its conduct, and this proved too much to be borne. The angry householder seized his gun and killed the dog. He was however compelled to pay $50 to the owner of the dog, and the supreme court held that the verdict was a proper one. POLITIOAL GOSSIP. , Lafe Young BeingDlscuBBcd for Governor—Ills Nomination Probablo. The Marshaltown Times-Republican has the following political news from DesMoines: In republican circles— that is, the inner circles—there is considerable speculation as to the nominee for erovernor. It is pretty generally conceded that tho fight will be a warm one and a close one, even with a fighting candidate, with chances about even and depending somewhat, of course, on the character of candidates and platforms. The Given mulct tax is certain to be embodied in the republican platform. It is simply local option in its most perfect form, and now has behind it the almost solid prohibition support of the state. "But we want a man," said a republican of state wide reputation, speaking in the Savery lobby last night to a crowd, the personnel oi which was eqnaliy distinguished, " whd is not only agooa republican, not only a good campaigner* but who has been fight on this question." "1 can name him," said a state officer—a fighting republic can himself. " His name isLafe Young, but it would not be in nominating him that I should expect trouble. The boys of the Iowa republican press are with him and the people are with him. He is true blue all the way through and everybody knows it. But he is working hard to build up a newspaper property here and is succeeding. Even with his well-known loyality to republicanism, it might well be questioned whether he can afford to take the nomination and make the race. If he will the battle is over half won." And so the comment ran 'round the circle. The gathering was representative. It contained delegates of the republican league assembling for their southern trip, state officers, and republicans of prominence from different parts of the state. "I served with Lafe two years in the senate." added another, "and I don't think that body ever held a man more popular with his associates. While he was a vigorous fighter,an eloquent speaker and an ever read deba.ter, I doubt if he has warmer friends in Iowa today than some of the demobrats who served with him. They admired him for his courage, his dash and his ability and loved him because he was always a gentleman." "Count me in on that," said a well- known jurist holding a federal position and who himself won fame in the halls of Iowa's old capitol. "I never knew Lafe to go back on a friend or turn his back to an enemy. I have.known him intimately for years, and there is no office in the gift of Iowa republicans for which I would not support him if he were a candidate." And so the talk ran on. If it is any reflex of state opinion, Lafe Young will be Iowa's next governor, if he will consent to make the fight. As to that, opinions differ. A personal friend said that he could not afford it. Another said Lafe Young would do as he always has done, sacrifice his' personal for his party's interests, providing he felt assured that the party actually and honestly wanted him to run. The latter interpretation was generally accepted by those present, and it need not surprise readers of the Times-Republican if Lafe Young is nominated for governor by acclamation.
