IN view of all of the circumstances there is a little of the tempest in a teapot about Gov. Boies letters to the sheriffs urging them to enforce the laws of Iowa in behalf of the herd ponies to be ridden across this week in the cowboy race. In the first place those best acquainted with these horses have a well founded suspicion that thoy can stand tho race as well as the riders can and that no cruelty will be practiced. In the second place Gov. Boies stumped tho state two years ago to show that he had no power as governor to assist in enforcing any law except by appearing in police court to file in- formations like any other citizen. In tho third place if any law is to receive his special attention it ought to be the one most flagrantly violated, and of most far reaching effect. What sense of perspective must a man have who •can sit four years without raising his • finger for the enforcement of one of the chief laws of tho state, which has been systematically disregarded and evaded, and which affects the standing and reputation of every citizen of the state, and then at tho prospect of injury to a half dozen herd ponies can write long letters to tho sheriffs of every county they aro expected to enter, urging that the real dignity of the laws of Iowa be maintained. Over -in Illinois where the governor, so far as wo know, is impartial as to the laws he assists to enforce tho proclamation of Gov. Altgeld is not ridiculous, in which he says: " Having reason to beliovc the proposed race will bo accompanied by equal or even greater cruelty and barbarity, which will bo in violation of the laws of this state, I hereby call upon all officers, as well as upon all good citizens to see to it that no violation of our law takes place, and that any one guilty of it shall bo promptly brought to justice. Wo will welcome so-called 'cowboys' into our state and bid them como in all thoir glory and have a thoroughly enjoyable time whilo with us, but we cannot permit tho laws of Illinois to be trampled under foot simply as a matter of sport." But hero in Iowa this spasm of law enforcement on tho part of Gov. Boies in this pony case, barely escapes the ludiclous. It is time lowu had.a governor, who has a better sense of the proportion of things. political parties are enough. Society naturally divides into two classes. Any body of voters representing any principle can make themselves felt through the old organizations more quickly than by breaking away, and if what they advocate is wise they find no difficulty in securing its adoption. Parnell showed what can be accomplished by working through established channels in his management of Ireland's cause. Such elections as Germany has had do not strengthen popular government. The petty divisions preventing any positive and decisive results, and leaving parliament with a lot of squabbling clans instead of with two great parties, must tend to discourage the people who are fighting windmills in their elections, and putting more and more power with the emperor and his representatives. Capt. Hull says: "I am opposed to state banks of issue. If we must go to smash I would prefer silver to wildcat money." The Marshalltown Republican says two things should be done in Iowa, "unite the public voice in the strongest possible demand for the enforcement of. the laws. Also, make the laws as enforceable as possible." Congressman George D. Perkins, who knows what he speaks of, says: "The story so industriously circulated lately, that a convass of the members of the present congress shows that the silver purchase act will be repealed shortly after the extra session meets, is utterly unwarranted. No adequate canvass has been made. Certainly not even a majority of the members have expressed themselves definitely. On the contrary, there has.lately been evidence of increased zeal on the part of the advocates of free silver. There has been no sign of a break among the free silver democrats." The world famous Blarney stone is now at Chicago. It is the original stone. A choir of 300 Mormons is to sing sacred songs of their religion on the Utah day at the fair. ley bill! Fiery metaphor iningled with perspiration, attested the zeal with which those outraged friends of the people panted for " a chance" to undo this republican wrong—this "culminating atrocity" of class legislation. With theatric gesture and limp shirt collar, Mr. Speaker Crisp demonstrated to the suffering masses that Georgia alone was robbed of some $iS,000,- 000 per annum by this fearful invention of unearthly republicanism—never alluding to the fact, however, that he, the said Crisp, had so organized the fifty-second congress that a magnificent democratic majority never dared to touch the McKinley bill. _ A .?4,000 trotting mare belonging to Hank. Colby at Fort Dodge died Monday. The Muscatine Journal says: "The Cherry sisters have abandoned the stage, but they now appear in the role of litigants in a court of law. After they had decided on a starring tour they leased their little farm, animals, etc., to a Mr' Houts for a period of one year, beginning March 1. Returning from their tour they decided to oust Mr. Houts, and brought a replevin action for the live stock. The case was heard before Judge Ellsberry of Marion Saturday. A jury was impanneled, agreed down the river. We Mt6 ho doubt that by the time all those broken buggy springs nave been replaced by new ones and the fractured harnesses again made perfect that the big show will be entirely forgotten. Corwith Crescent: A wagon load of Corwith people came very near having a serious accident at Algona Monday night after the show. Blinded by a bright light the team went down a steep embankment beside a hridfrr. No damage was done aside from breaking the tongue and whip'pletrees of the wagon, but the horses wagon and people were thrown in a promiscuous hesip and it is a hurt. wonder someone was not to disagree and the result will be trial. another Vf. H. Norris is talked of to succeed Jas. E. Blythe as chairman of the republican state committee. There is no better man in the state for the place. After all the talk about what the democrats would do with the McKinley tariff, here is the summing up of the situation by Edward Atkinson, who represents the inner circles of influence: "We are compelled to face the situation in which more revenue and not less is needed. The result is that it will not be possible for the administration to present a bill which will make any very radical changes in the tariff, or be a serious blow to the protective system. The fact is that in my opinion the administration will do very little, indeed, with the tariff, for the very good reason that it will not be able to do so." Bishop Merrill says the Methodists will withdraw their exhibits from the world's fair and not go near it, so long as it is open on Sunday. He looks for like action on the part of other churches. A good story is told on a couple of Turks, who bear a palanquin at the great fair. They were carrying around a fat woman the other day when one of them remarked to the other: "Accursed am I, and I kick my bones for the day that I first heard of Columbus." ' JUSTICE FULLER and his two associates hitvo decided that the world's fair is in the hands of local managers and that they have full authority to open it on Sunday. The fair consequently is open. A great dual lias been said about Sunday closing. But so far as hoard from the Sunday closers have confined their efforts to Jackson Park. Wo have soon nothing about closing Lincoln or Garfiold parks, Buffalo Bill's wild wont show, the art gallery, tho theatres or the saloons. All those aro open on Sunday and have been for years. Thoro is probably a difference between this big fair that tho government him a hand in, in importance, and tho smaller K)IOWH that abound in Chicago. But HO far as tho morltH of Sunday closing ure concerned what difference is tlioro botwoon thorn? Altogether too much stress has boon put on closing .1'ackHon Park. It will do tho leat^ diumigo of any of thorn on Sunday, Tho war should begin wlioro tho ovil is greatest. Thci'o IH too much of tho spectacular suiumor soldier businoHH ubout a middon raid on n comparatively harmless infriiigcinont. Tho real Sunday cloHor will begin with tho saloons and theatres. When they aro shut there will ho time enough to begin on tho out door groves, art institutes, and tho world's fair exhibit. Tin: Ui'i'isit Dl58 MoiNKS Is in Hympalhy with all movements to proHorvo Sunday as a special day of root. But with tho solf- advorllKlng Sunday champions, of tho Col. Klllot I' 1 . Shepherd order, it has Hlllo sympathy. There have boon too many of them getting notoriety out of this world'w fair closing movement, Peter A. Dey does not want the democratic nomination for governor. Secretary Gresham is said to get a pension of 830 a month. And he is assisting in purifying the pension rolls by keeping some soldier who needs the money from getting & or £4 a month. Gen, Black, who gets 8150 a month for total disability is another of the reformers. The State Register culls attention to the fact that the Uriggs trial cost tho Presbyterian church £50,000 and adds: "Moan- while there are millions of unsaved hcath- on on whom tho money might have been spent—not across tho sea, but right hero ut homo." Tho Carroll Herald noticing Congress- mini Henderson's withdrawal as a candidate for governor suys: "In tho natural order of events republicans will turn to Lake Young for tho honor. Ho comes nearer Illling Duvo Henderson's fighting clothes than uny other man In tho state. Wo know of no man who surpasses Lafo Young on tho stump for effective oratory and direct statement. Ho is simply a master." TllK German elections of tho past wook show tho disadvantage of moro than two loading political parties. Although Uiei'o wua a square IBHUO raised in favor of and ugiiliiHl tho proposed bill for increasing' tho slumllng ivnny, nothing delhiito IIH to tho outcome is known, Thoro arc HO many different 'political organizations, and were so many ililYeroiiteandidatos in eaeh district, that probably uol more than half tho new parlimont are elected. Unless a majority votes for one man a new or secondary election must bo hold, and until thetio aro hold tho complexion of tho new body cannot bo knowu. In most districts tharo woro as many as six candidates, ouch representing some potty sulo issue of his wing, and assisting- to provont iv full expression of public opinion on tho lending issues. Two In tho death of Moses Bloom Iowa City loses one of its most conspicuous characters. Ho was a Froncli Jovy, came to Iowa in early days, imulo a comfortable fortune in tho clothing trade and real estate speculation, drifted Into politics, arid was in both brandies of tho Iowa legislature. Ho was agonial man, and well liked and respected by his associates. A bank cashier was indicted for sending the following notico ou a postal card: "I have this day begun legal proceedings on one of the collections I huvo ou hand against you, and shall follow with tho others if not attended to at onco." Tho matter came before Judge Woolson, who dismissed tho caHo. lie held that tho matter did not warrant an indictment. Senator Allison miya: "I favor tho ro- poul of BO much of tho Sherman act as authorizes tho purchase of silver and enforce nient of HO much of it as requires that gold, silver ami paper shall bo kept at a parity in circulation. I believe that all currency should be issued under tho authority of tho United States, with suitable provisions for reserves to secure the redemption of paper IBBUOS, ur.d tho parity of gold and silver." Gov. Holes says ho does not know that tho domouratlo committee have decided on him for governor again, It is said ho wants Judge Couch nominated. IN THIS FEIGHBOBHOOD. West Bend is to close its stores on Sunday. Rev. Pratt layed the corner stone of a $15,000 Methodist church at LeMars last week. Fort. Dodge Messenger: J. J. Ryan of Algona was down Sunday to attend church in this city. Mason City, which has a fine jail building, has now let a contract for more iron work in it to cost $2,958. Mr. Harding, living near Graetinger, has in a very large garden, which consists of 100 acres of potatoes, and 100 acres of beans, onions, etc. The Rush Lake township people over in Palo Alto are showing good sense. They are expending a large part of their road fund in ditching. Spencer Reporter: T. H. Conner, Algona's architect, was here the fore part of the week looking after the building of the new school house. Carroll Herald: Andrews' Opera company plays at Algona soon. The reorganized company seems to be one of the most popular troupes on the road. Here is a Washington correspondent to the Sioux City Journal- who speaks of "John McArthur, who is lookin°- after appointments in the Tenth dis°- trict." What does this mean? The Reporter says that our popular court reporter, David Grier, has lately lost his Milwaukee mileage book. If that will keep him from coming to Algona we hope it will be speedily found. It was reported that the Ringlings got very mad at the depot agent at Webster City. A railway man asked why and received the comforting response, "because ho refused to check the elephant's trunk." H. C. Schadbolt is raising corn at Emmetsburg that is to grow to the height of fifteen feet, each stock will have seven ears of corn, it will mature in !)0 days and, last but not least, the corn will grow shelled. LuVerne News: Mrs. Geo. W. Hanna was a visitor at Sioux City several days last week, returning Saturday. She was accompanied on her return by Miss Gonio, who has boon there for some time attending school. Tho Emmetsburg Democrat mentions a Kossuth brod colt in the following: Saturday night M. F. Coonan shipped his runner, Bancroft, to Chicago. Ho will put him in training and enter him in somo of tho best two-year- old races. Burt Monitor: Tho American eagle will omit it most joyful and world-defying scream at this place July 4 from a. m. in tho morning to p. m. in the afternoon. It will bo tho most elaborate celebration in tho county. Do not miss it under any circumstances. West Bond Journal: J. 0. Blackford has traded his residence in Algona for a farm in Nevada township Miss Pottibono, an excellent teacher in the Wesley school, accompanied Mrs. Clark Hancock Signal: Henry Straw has been enjoying a pleasant visit from his brother, D. R. Straw, of Guilford, Me., the past week. This is D. Re. first visit west, and he finds in our level prairie farms a big contrast to the side hills of old Maine. Mr. S. will spend a few days at Algona with his sister, Mrs. Geo. Clarke, and then accompany Geo. E. to the world's fair. Geo. will make a good guardian as he knows "the ways that are dark and the tricks that are vain." Emmetsburg Conservative: Algona has a "suspicious" death. A miser by the name of Lee Horning was found dead in his lonesome residence one day last week, and it was popularly supposed_that he had untold sums of gold hid in secret places somewhere about the premises. But the house and cellar have been searched and the yard turned bottom-side up, and the yellow metal eludes the search of everyone. Circumstances are developing "which lead to the suspicion of foul play and robbery, and Algona is experiencing the deliciousness of a sensational tragedy. Bro._Platt says in the Forest City Summit: Algona has had a meeting of her progressive citizens, the object of which was to organize for the purpose of improving the town in the way of establishing manufactories or to secure anything else likely to "result in good. For many years Algona was a rather quiet town but of late her latent energies have been aroused and she is striding along at the head of the procession. During the last year several buildings have gone up in her business portion that would be a credit to any city in Iowa, and besides these she has a butter tub factory, a large creamery and a good system of waterworks and is considering the practicability of putting in an electric light plant. A start in the right direction has already accomplished much for Algona and what she has done and is doing may be done for Forest City if she will but improve her fine opportunities. Nature has given Forest City a town site of surpassing beauty and it will be the fault of her citizen capitalists and busi- NO ROOM FOR DISCUSSION, Everybody Should Plan to Go to Chicago Sometime Before October and See the Big Fair* The Expense Moderate and the Benefits Mot to Be Overestimated—A Few Suggestions. 2,500 ness men if she- is not a place of or 3,000 five years hence. Whittemore Champion: The Courier opened the political ball last week by a generous running comment on the claims of republican candidates for the office of representative, and with a degree of modesty before unknown to it forbears to mention a single democratic aspirant to the only important office, in its estimation, to be filled this fall. Is this because of a lack of timber in the democratic forest, or an inclination to let the matter rest until the Algona postofflce has been filled? Of course Brother Hinchon would not attempt to monopolize two places in the hearts of the people, but we believe, in common with editors in general, he would prefer a place of honor to that of profit, solely, and to help a brother out of an embarrassing position, the Champion volunteers to place the name of J. W. Hinchon among the possible availables on the democratic side. If the above proposition has any grave objections such as false modesty and the like, we don't want the office to seek a man too long and wo would respectfully submit tho name of a tried and trusty office holder imported from the fires of Palo Alto county, T. F. McGovern of Whittemore. To the Editor: If anyone is debating in his own mind whether it will be wise to visit the world's fair will such an one allow a recent visitor to offer a few suggestions. It will not only be wise, but ver.v in'otitable; it will broaden the outlook and enrich the mind and ennoble the feelings of the visitor, and in this matter of fnct and work-a-day world it would be a wrong and suicidal policy to treat lightly or indifferently anything that will tend to expand and ennoble the best qualities of the mind and heart. When once you have entered the gates of Jackson Park you have entered a worldwide domain. If you are an lovvan your steps will naturally tend first to Iowa's attractive building, and here you will register your name and establish that close acquaintanceship which will make you feel that here you have a.home; and a delightful home it is—for the shores of lake Michigan are at your feet, and the evidences of Iowa's wealth in corn, grains, grapes and minerals are most skillfully and beautifully interwoven in the interior decorations of the building. If the day is cool the bright, open fireplaces will shed a ruddy glow of warmth on all around, and large, easy chairs will invite you to the rest and refreshment which they will offer you. But you have come to the world's fair, not only to learn how great Iowa is, but how great the world is. So you saunter forth and, as the electric railroad which encircles the grounds has a station very near the Iowa building and also the great art building, you naturally enter the cars and speed rapidly ou your way to mako the tour of the great buildings. You first reach the fisheries building, horticultural hall, the manufacturers' and liberal arts and the government buildings. You next come to the women's and children's building. You next stop will be at the administration, electrical, mining, machinery hall and the agricultural buildings. From this point you will look upon the beautiful McMoimies fountain in front of the administration building, across the lagoon to the magnificent golden statue of the republic, and on to the grand entrance from the lake through the highly ornamented peristyle which connects the music hall with tho casino. From this station you move on until you roach tho great transportation building, with its glory of rich colors and condition of the crop is fated at 87 per cent Spring Wheat: There is an average reduction of six per cent, in the acreage of spring wheat, compared With 1892. Its condition is placed at 96 per cent. On the basis of the estimated acreage of last year the total yield of spring and winter wheat in Iowa will not exceed 7,000,000 bushels Corn: Tho reports of correspondents show an ihcrease in acreage planted in corn in every county except two. The average increase for the state is 10 per cent., compared with last year. The total acreage is not yet officially estimated from the returns of township assessors, but. it Will probably not exceed 6,500,000 acres. The condition of the crop is 98 per cent, the stand and color being generally good. Oats: 78 counties report an increase in the acreage of oats, and 22 report a decrease compared with last year. The average for the state gives an increase of five per cent, in the area sown, and the average condition is 96 per cent. llye: Decrease in acreage, seven per cent.; condition, 93 por cent. Barley: Increase, one per cent.; condition, 95 per cent. This cereal is raised in about three-fourths of tho counties of the state, and the total acreage is small. Flax: There appears to be an average decrease of 12 per cent in the area of this crop, compared with 1892. The condition is 94 per cent.

Music was furnished by tho Algona band. Tho noxt mooting will be hold at Algona. Tho following item is going the rounds of tho stale press: Dr. Gurfield of Algona is making preparations for a bioyolo trip to tho world's fair. The doctor is over 70 years old and has a reputation as the oldest as well as the most enthusiastic wheelman in Iowa. Ho figures ou making the distance, something over 400 miles, in less than nine days. Livormoro Gazette: And now it sooms that the number of people who really did,attend the circus tit Algona is diminishing daily. No one admits of evoivrioeiug the parade, but on being questioned in regard to their absence from town on that _dny, at once proceed with tvu entertaining account of a "visit in the country" or an interesting description of a "fishing party" The Wind Cavo a Wind Cavo Around. Bro. Warren's Spearfish Mail, which is out near the scene of Mindreader Johnstone's Wind cave exploit, lets a little light in on it. It says: "It was a well understood matter when Johnstone, the mind reader, was in Spearfish, that his engagement with Hot Springs boomers was a pure and simple advertising scheme for himself and the wind cave. The boomers down there made the most of their opportunity, but some of tho 'stuff' they sont to eastern papers would bring tears to a Here is a sample of the matter vni- the wires:" and then is report wo published last stone, sent over quoted tho week. Johnstone found the pin head he was after. The Mail tells the story as follows: "Dr. A. G. Cowles of Durand, Mich., who with his wife came in from Wind cave late this afternoon, brought _word that Johnstone, after 70 hours of incessant labor and search, finally succeeded in finding tho pin head he has been searching for, After he found it and the party were rotui-ning- to the surface Johnstone's physical powers completely gave way and he fell unconscious at the ' Methodist church' chamber. A party had just been organized to go in search of him and they were about to start when the door was lifted and .Germond came for a stretcher to carry Johnstone out. Physicians are there and will do everything in their power to resuscitate him and try to prevent brain fever, which is liable to set in, The pin was found at 'Hanging Rock,'about 15 miles in, at 10:30 Wednesday morning." Even if the story as originally sent out was a fake, it is evident that Johnstone had a sorry time in the cave, and is in a bad plight as ti result. A Touching Epitaph, "I was well Would be better Took medicine And here I He." magnificently decorated golden entrance; then to the forestry and dairy buildings' and you will have attained the compass of the great buildings. And if these buildings were all which the fair could offer vou you would feel well repaid for your visit. me mawel to all is how so much of beautv and grandeur could have reached its culmination in so short a time in the splendid towers and domes of the white city. You will find the buildings of foreign countries most interesting.

Tho display of books and pictures m tho German building is very extensive. In France the corridor which connects the two wings of the building is lined with beautiful pictures The display in the great art building of beautiful paintings from these two countries as well as from Austria, Holland, Denmark, Great Britian, the United States and other countries would require months of time for the true artist to appreciate their full beauty and value, Germany and I' ranee mako a magnificent display in the manufacturers' building. The iron gates which had guarded Germany's treasures nave been thrown open and the public are admitted to a fairy-like palace of gold and silver treasures. Many of them are gifts to the emperors and never before sent to any foreign country. France is unexcelled m her rare tapestries, and France and ureat Britian vie with each other in beau tiful pottery and bronzes. Austria has a magnificent display of Bohemian glass. Japan has her exhibit of rare and costly articles. The woman's building is a great centre of attraction. Tho large library contains a choice collection of tho works of women writers. Upon the roof is a garden cale which overlooks the extensive grounds and here one can obtain a reasonable lunch at any time. . No one will find any diflculty in obtaining .refreshments at reasonable prices. The White Horse inn will attract many because of its historic associations. The Japan tea House will be visited, because of the delicious fragrance of its tea served with Japanese condiments, In the India building the white turbaned natives will give refreshments in the midst of rare treasures with which their building is filled.
