A hundred, more or less, of the editors of the northwest quarter of-the state gathered at LeMars last Thursday and enjoyed a pleasant visit at the gateway city. They were cordially received, listened to eloquent addresses by Lafe Young and Ignatius Donnelly, had some interesting discussions of their own, were banqueted and driven about the city. LeMars claims 5,000 people, all of whom have come since 1872. It has a $30,000 normal school building, a shoe factory with a capacity of 360 pairs a day, mills and other industries, and a thrifty and healthy look. The address by the famous opponent of nearly every accepted theory to which his attention has been directed was on "Wit and Humor." Mr. Donnelly is a short, chubby man with a very big neck and a still bigger head at the end of it. He talks readily and entertainingly, and advanced no startling views on the value of humor. At the banquet he got in one Donnellyism when he said that if the democrats remain in power LeMars would probably gain 6,000 people; if the republicans got in again it might gain 7,000 people, but if the people's party should win it would be a city of 60,000 at the very least. In quoting from the master of dramatic writing he referred to him once as "the man you are pleased to call Shakespeare," which brought a good-natured cheer. He quoted one remark from Josh Billings: "If you are good looking- cultivate your boot's, but if you are born homely 1 hoe your brains," and said that after looking the crowd over he wasn't surprised that there were so many editors. Donnelly is genial in temperament, but takes a very gloomy view of the world as at present organized. One of the attractions of the occasion was a game of polo Friday afternoon. LeMare has the champion player of the United States, and the others were able to keep him busy. Polo is shinny played on horseback. A level field of about twenty acres IB chosen, goals are fixed at each end, a wooden ball like a croquet ball is put in the middle. The players on their ponies line up behind it, and it is started. Each player has a long stick with a mallet head at the end, and swipes the ball whenever be gets near enough. When it is driven through either goal the game is won. The ponieB know the game as well as the men, and play with equal enthusiasm, and their Bklll in getting to the ball Is half the play. It is very exciting, fairly dangerous, and requires great skill and strength in the wrist. In early days tho relative advancement In civilization won determined by the number of pianos and organs tho assessors' books showed In tho varlouB counticB. It was a fair teBt and IB yet. It is a comparatively few things that make one place unlike or ahead of another. LeMai'B has three pipe organs, and Senator Funk and the writer enjoyed a special feature of entertainment In an hour's recital given by Mrs. J. M, Emory on on oof thorn. Mrs, Kmory is one of the noted musicians of the northwest, the player for tho Spirit Lake Chautuuqua assemblies, and a master on her favorite instrument. If we should single out tho distinctive feature of LeMai'B us an Iowa city It would bo tho patronage and encouragement it affords to inuBlc and to superior muBlcal advantages. Tho editors present at this meeting formed a new association distinct from tho Upper Den Mollies uHKooiatlon. They will hold their meetings In tho Eleventh district, but will all visit tho Upper DOB MolncH meeting at Spirit Luke about Aug. 1C. There arc BOHIO of tho brightest editors In Iowa In the now as- Hoclalioi), arid while wo still doubt tho advisability of two separate orgunlza- by possibly bring mankind back to the stronghold* of ttie early faith. Itfaaotby accident that the part so years, t> half ocn- tufjr of incredible progress, hare Seen the accumulation of money on a scale hitherto unheard of in the world—not only the piling up of individual possessions, but also toe general increment of wealth in every modern state. The bearing of a worldwide phenomenon like that is not truly discerned by those who in the wealth of individuals see only a standing threat against the commonwealth. " Already there are signs that the purpose of wealth is a divine purpose, so that thoughtful hearts, often cast down in the presence of the vulgar ostentation of riches, may take courage. Every day the press records the gift of thousands, often of millions to public enterprise. The last week of the last December poured into the chan-! nels of education, charity, and religion more than $5,000,000. What does it signify when a single Christmas is made memorable by snch farsighted philanthropy as that of Philip D. Armour and John D. Bocke- feller ? It is a hint of the coming era, when all wealth, in order to escape reproach, if for no higher reason, shall enlist itself in the volunteer service of civilization. "A thousand enterprises looking to the progress of the human race are crippled by the want of money. A hundred litUe American colleges are struggling with the problem of poverty. The church in all its branches, seeking- to move along the broad lines of the gospel, finds her magnificent projects at home and abroad belittled and discredited by a narrow treasury. It is as sure as any future thing that the making of money—or, more properly, the accumulation of money—is to go on through the coming century. Nor does it take a very acote insight to perceive that we are approaching the time when, without invitation the reforms proposed by state socialism, the products of labor, the fruits of genius, the dividends of investment, and the spoils of commerce shall be more and more willingly put aside in the generous plans of the rich as trust funds, involving a high stewardship, for the ultimate use of the community." to subjects of other nations. As the case DOW stands it awaits some action on the part of congress. If the act is enforced it trill go down through time as a blot, on the pages of American history—a crime against another nation." disgraceful A son of the blind preacher, W. H. Mil burn, who lectured in Algona once, committed suicide in Chicago, Sunday. A lady rider is billed for the cow-boy race from Chadron to Chicago. The cow-boy race is not off. The management have requested the local branch of the humane society to appoint a representative to accompany the riders. Every rider will be required to give a written agreement to use no cruelty to his horses, the violation of which will forfeit his interest and place in the race, A number will drive through in carriages, and two men, Robert Zuver and James Boyd, will go ahead on bicycles. The race will start on June 13, according to programme. The report from Denver that the race bad been declared off is without any foundation whatever. The Milwaukee railway has 6,100 miles of road, of which 1,553 miles are in Iowa. The twenty-eighth annual convention of the Iowa Sunday School association is to be held in the Methodist church of Chariton, June 30-23. Judge Thomas last week decided the law compelling dam owners to put in fishways to be constitutional. Commissioner Griggs brought the suit against the Milford water power company. State Auditor McCarthy in an address before the bankers last week defended the law putting banks under state regulation and said: " I am also frank and free to say to you that I believe all other financial institutions, such as savings and loan, build- Ing and loan, loan and trust companies, and investment companies, should be placed under state control. The public could then have an opportunity of knowing their condition, and the weak ones would be improved or compelled to go out of business- giving better security to the public, and better patronage to the institutions that are worthy of support." THE MONTH'S MAGAZBTE8. Kodolfo Lancianl's new paper, called "New Facts Concerning the Pantheon," which opens tie June number of the Atlantic Monthly, Is another Instance of this writer's power In presenting to a living and entertaining way a snb- Jectwlilch has great possibilities of dryness. Most people who should endeavor to give facts, however new. about the pantheon, would inevitably lapse Into dullness and prosmess: but Prof. Lanclanl tells so brightly and concisely what he has to tell that one wishes discoveries In Borne were more frequent IT thev could be reported by to clever a writer. Scribner's Magazine for June opens with the second article In the series on " Men's Occupations," which Is to be a feature of the coming months, Including among Its contributors W. D. Howells, W.

If the 'no modification' policy is to prevail at the state convention, let tho issue of state en forcement bo clearly defined, and let republicans then go forth to battle with no uncertainty as to the issue Involved and the meaning respectively of victory or defeat. We want no more of the Sioux City and Muscatlne martyrdoms upon the altar of an impotent state law." The Carroll Herald says: " Col. Warren S. Durigan of Charltan will be a candidate for tho nomination on the republican ticket for lieutenant-governor in the next state convention, Col. Dungan IB one of tho old guard among republicans and would make a splendid candidate, The Herald would bo proud to see him preside over tho next senate." tloiib In tho territory, this mooting will do good In widening the Hold of the ono which will, wo bollovo, bo tho final outcome.

Shellenberger did business in Algona a couple of days last week. The many friends of Harvey Mathers will be glad to learn that he is again able to be on the streets after being confined to the house for three months or more. Livermore Independent: Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Norton went to Algona Saturday for a visit with their daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Peterson. The Milwaukee company has contracted for 5,000 cars of gravel at Rock Valley, which will be unloaded all along the lino. Algona should arrange to gravel the diagonal again. Speaking of J. W. Sullivan's address at Emmetsburg the Democrat said last week: "Mr. Sullivan is a clever orator and he will doubtless give his listeners something very pleasing." Fort Dodge Times: Hon. J. P. Dolliver had an architect look over his residence with the view of enlarging and modernizing it, but concluded the better way was to wait a year, move the old residence off, and build entirely new, as he Is very much attached to tho location. Burt Monitor; Lightning struck Wm. Schweitert's residence south of town during the storm Monday morning, tho chimney .being wrecked and a largo portion of the plastering being removed besides stirring up the inmates pretty severely. Fortunately DO serious damage was .done. Tho State Register in reporting the bankers' mooting at Council Bluffs says: " President Smith appointed E. M. Scott of Cedar Rapids, C, C. St. Clair of Algona, and G. M. Reynolds of Dos Molnos as the auditing committee." Mr. St. Clair was also appointed on the committee on nominations. when the storm struck them. Bach grasped a child and protected it from danger while the boose turned over four times, when they crawled out at the northeast corner of the roof a trifle bruised but fortunately not seriously hurt. Their escape from death is almost miraculous. Elmore Eye: THE UPPKR DBS MouvES says that the Algona tennis players hare organized a club and alter a HtOe practice will challenge anything in northwestern Iowa. Elmore tennis players are also agitating the same question, and if they prove half as giiod with the racket as they profess thev may invite Algona to extend their challenge about 80 rods into Minnesota. Hancock Signal: Senator Brower has received an appointment from Gov. Boies as one of the Iowa delegates to the anti-coal combine convention to be held in Chicago June 5-6. We shall expect the senator to attend strictly to business and give a good account of his mission. We would suggest that the delegates take with them their coal bills of last winter just as a reminder. Last week while the east-bound Milwaukee passenger was between Dickens and Ruthven, running at full speed, a woman jumped from the train and alighted without injury. The train stopped and she was taken on again. She either wanted to commit suicide or is mentally unsound. She was enjoying the attention of the brakeman when the train passed through Emmetsburg. Livermore Independent: Mr. Jones of the Glen Stock farm near Humboldt was a caller in town Saturday. Also A. J. and M. J. Jones of Algona were doing business here the last of the week. A. J. came from Baltimore, Md., 37 years ago and since that time has been a resident of Kossuth county and a believer in the great and growing west, and as the years go by his faith grows stronger. Jim Gallion had hard luck up at Armstrong in the Sunday night storm of a week ago. The Bancroft Register says: He was out in the yard occupied in some work and while stooping over his pocketbook containing $240 in bills fell out of his pocket, opened, and the paper money was scattered to the four winds. Search was of course made for the bills, but we understand ceeded in finding only $90 amount. WOMEN IK HIGH PLACES, Female Intelligence and Beauty Predominated at the Woman's Con- gfessih Chicago.

They will commence keeping house on their new farm /our miles west of Corwith. Mr. Lallier is one of the oldest residents of the town, having lived here nearly twelve years. Many friends here and in York state will join in congratulations. Emmetsburg Reporter: The all- around-tough, Kenna, who made the charge that Marshal Dailey of Algona assisted him in escaping from the Kossuth county jail last year, was brought back from the Anamosa penitentiary to testify in the case and last Thursday night made his escape from the cell in which he was confined and is now at large. His charge against the officer was trumped up to give him the opportunity to get away himself. A girl in Ogden recently found a lot of love letters written by her father to her mother many years before they were married. The daughter read them to her mother, pretending they were of recent date, and substituted her own name for that of her mother's and the name of a young man well known to both of them for her father's. The mother was very much disgusted and has forbidden her daughter to have anything to do with a young man that will write such nonsense and sickening- stuff. fe Tho Emmetsburg Democrat says: Harry Wilson reports a good time at the Algona shooting tournament last week and says he got his share of the receipts Kossuth county has a family named Sinn that are said to be rather sinful. They are on trial this week for breaking into a. depot A Whittemore gossiper informs us that Ed. O'Toole has rented one of the largest and neatest residences at that place but will not occupy it until next month. Ed. has neither denied tho report nor vouched for its accuracy, Whittemore Champion: Last fall whenKenna's story about A. F, Dailey was first circulated a good deal of indignation was expressed and there seemed to be a necessity of immediate investigation, but when time had elapsed for careful consideration of the only evidence brought to bear the public feeling was exactly reversed, as good legal reasons undoubtedly demanded that the case should be dropped, To the Editor: The sessions of the Woman's congress, the first congress inaugurated in the series of confesses which will be held during the world's fair, have been extremely interesting. The great and small halls in the new art building on the lake shore, near the center of the city, have been filled to overflowing with women from all parts of the world, throughout the entire week. Subjects of groat and vital importance have been discussed by the ablest leaders of our own and other lands. Re- lieion, philosophy, art, music, the drama, temperance, housebbld economies, civil law and government, and other questions have been treated in a masterly way by those whose study and thought have modeled them to give clear and concise reasons for the faith that is in them. One thing to note in this Woman's congress is the tone of self-respecting assurance that has pervaded it throughout. Women have not come together in this world's fair congress to apologize for being in public places. They simply fill the places well and seem te feel that is Just the thing to do. When Miss Anthony, Mrs. Stone, and Mrs. Howe appear upon the platform alone, then we realize that in the past there have been some difficulties to overcome, but when they appear side by side, as in this congress, with Mrs. May Wright Sewell, Mrs. Potter Palmer, Mrs. Chas. Henrotin and others, radiant and youthful, smiling and beautiful, arrayed in the most approved style, then we forgot that it should ever have been hard for accomplished women to take their places as earnest philanthropists, zealous ministers, able lawyers and skillful physicians, by the side of their good broth*S> We believe a great deal of credit is due to Mrs. Potter Palmer for the great success of the Woman's congress. Mrs. Palmer is president of the board of lady managers and as such gave the address of \velcome to the Woman's congress in Columbus hall on Monday morning, May 17. Mrs. Palmer's address was preceded by the very able address of Hon. C. C. Bonney, who is presi- ur MI o i c ° n & ress committee of the w .°, rld 'f Columbian exposition.

This was all tho more severe from tho fact that they lived together and formed a very happy family. Tho coal Bhods belonging to the lumber companies at Swcu City in some manner caught flro Sunday evening and wore burned, together with about one and a half carloads of coal in them at the time.

The court should have been spared the contemptible disgrace of having to listen passively to the revilings of such a character and the county the unwarranted expense of the whole proceeding-. The air is full of rumors that the matter was pushed into the court for political effect and if that is the case it is liable to develop into a perfect boomerang.

On this opening occasion she was richly attired in a ' " with jet ornaments B U11D ^ beautiful women and distinguished gentlemen upon the platform, she seemed the center of attraction. This congress has been a great promoter of concord among women. Catholic women and Protestant women have discussed the theme of religion upon the same platform and with the utmost good will. . • Temnerance has been discussed by partisan and non-partisan women. Mrs. J. Ellen Fost-.-r showed no outward sign of disapproval when Mrs. Helen M. Gougar, who proceeded her, said: " The republican party should nn.VP. nrlnntf»fl -wnmnnia a\iff*+nryQ OK vpurs ' repentance len it would not have gone out of power." Mrs. Foster spoke eloquently leaving out politics. Both speakers were at their best and both were heartily applauded. The only restriction and repression in this congress has been not to repress thought and honest consultation, but only to hold women in check from trampling over each other in their eagerness to gain admittance to some over-crowded hall. Here it seemed necessary at times to employ policemen, but the greatest good feeling prevaled, even in the midst of much discomfort. No doubt the gentlemen at the different entrances must often have felt amused at tho eagerness manifested by the women to gain admittance when they wished to hear some favorite speaker. Generally, however, tho gentlemen were able to preserve good order. One of the most notable occasions of the congress was the reception given to foreign delegates and other distinguished guests on Friday afternoon in the assembly room of the woman's hullding. It was easy to discover that this was an assembly of the wealth and fashion of Chicago. Upon the large platform, where roses and palms were interspersed, were seated the Duchess of Veragua and daughter, Vice-President and Mrs. Stevenson, Governor Oglesby and wife of Illinois, Miss Anthony, Mrs. Luev Stone, Miss Clara Barton, Mrs. Julia Ward Howe and many celebrated foreign delegates. Mrs. Palmer presided with her usual grace and gave an admirable address of welcome. The Theodore Thomas orchestra furnished very fine music. In introducing the speaker Mrs. Palmer in her inimitable way asked the ladies if they would consent to have her ask a gentleman to address them. " Yf>s » aai» ivr;™ day by J. R. Laird, and have sent them by express to tho old home, where they will be burled. One or both of them will remain until the estate Is settled. Their coming has put a stop to several rumors that were afloat. One was that a sister In Humboldt refused to come up. He has no such sister, in fact has no remaining relative but the one sister back telegraphed to Humboldt, but she was not a relative, as was found out later. Another rumor was that Lee had lots of money which he never paid taxes on. It now turns put that he told the truth when he said it was his sister's money. He was loaning quite a sum of hers, and had comparatively little of his own. Although no one in Algona knew where he kept his papers, and everybody was surprised. at their being found under the carpet and in the privy vault, his sister knew all about thern, and Mr. Corey told where they were as soon as he arrived Lee kept his sister very fully informed about his business. Lee came from a good family. His- brother when he died was general superintendent of a railroad in Pennsylvania, getting a salary of $15,000 a year. Lee was quick tempered and something of a pugilist, having whipped the two best men in the vicinity before he came west. He took to drinking some in the west, lived in McGregor at one time, where S. Benjamin knew him, kept saloon at Hampton and Rockford then was driving stage between Algona and Humboldt, and about 23 years affo came here to stop. He was genial in his way, rather quick tempered, inclined to drink, and also to draw a knife m a quarrel. He drew a bowie on Doc Russell at Humboldt once His last attempt of that kind was on R • J Danson, for which he was tried 'He was married, but separated from his wife, having no family. In early years Lee would tell of some of his exploits While running a saloon at Rockford he was quite well off, drove a fast team and owned a home. One night in a game of poker, two Dubuque men attacked him. He cut one badly with a knife and got out of town. Shaving his face and putting on a new suit he walked about Dubuque two weeks with the police looking for him. That just before coming here. He recognized until so long afterwards that nothing was ever done to brine him to trial. ° In Algona Lee never did anything particularly out of the way. In latter years he was a peaceable citizen.

" Yes," says Miss Anthony, and the vast concourse cheered heartily as Vice-President Stevenson was called upon to speak. The vice-president came forward and said he thought one orator in the family was enough and as his wife was to read a paper he would be brief and modest. Ho said enough, however, to show that he is iu hearty sympathy with the work which women are doing In connection with the world's fair and in all lines which tend to their advancement.

Some months ago a fellow calling himself a nephew of Gen. Sherman tried to borrow some money of Father Nicholls and Postmaster Stai-r, but failed to get any. He had barely got out of town when T. C. Dalton heard of him and told of his brother's experience. His brother in Wisconsin bought a stolen team from the same scapegrace, and has been looking for him ever since. Now comes the Webster City Freeman of last week with the following: A man giving his name as Robert Sherman, and claiming to be a nephew of Gen. W. T. and Senator John Shermaa, was arrested here Friday on a charge of stealing- a watch from a sleeping room in the Wilson house. The watch was found in his .possession. 'Squire Marsh, before whom he was tried, fined, him $25 and costs, which was paid by the G. A. R. boys here out of sympathy for a comrade who had got himself in a scrape. The fellow is intelligent and rather genteel in appearance and manner, but is unquestionably an accomplished dead toeat. 'TOWN property loans.

He said women are more respected in Japan than in America. Gentlemen never smoke in the presence of ladies in Japan and the women of Japan do not shout out as they do in America. This Woman's congress.hns done much to demonstrate that women can speak clearlv and distinctly, so that all can listen with pleasure and yet not shout out as the Ori ental would express it. Of all women speakers perhaps no one has a more cultivated voice than Mrs. Howe. Mrs Howe was greeted with great applause when she rose to express her sympathy with tho aims of the Woman's congress. Mrs Lucv Stone's smiling face expressed all that she would have said in words and Miss An- thouy's silent presence is always a benediction to any good cause. Governor Oir- lesby made a stirring appeal to women to go forward. Ho says women must help to redeem the world. He gave them all the encouragement that the most ardent could ask for.
