•r*ic?? TO BEY, BAGKELL'S CEITIC, Oar Methodist Pastor Writes a Letter for the Benefit of Mrs. Bailey of Webster City. HOW OYEK;A coMisffip, The Same Being in Answer to an Article by Mrs. Bailey Criticising His Oration in That City. When Rev. Bagnell Was invited to apeak at Webstar City ou the Fourth the woman suffrage society met and asked him to discuss the move for universal sufTra.r 0 . He hnd openly opposed it while n p::sior in Webster City and many Indies of the club know big sentiments. He answered thorn that his sentiments wore known, and that he would be pleased to refer to them in his speech. He accordingly enumerated woman suffrage as one of the dangers threatening' the country. But it seems that a Mrs. Bailey, who was instrumental in getting him to refer to the subject, didn't know how he stood, and was fired with righteousindignation when !)„ emne out aquaroly against her, which ,,; JO poured out in a column and nhiilfin ) ; ,st wooli's Freeman.

The speaker regarded this as one of the greatest dangers of the country, but for lack of time did not enter into a discussion of the vjirimm iiimana of it for " Capital and Labor'' as a*yonl familiar with the subject can see is but one Jhnse of it. The sixth Jast and greatest danger is tho Again, the critic is incorrect in tho closing statement of her labored article which is here quoted: "One statement of Mr Bagnell's was incorrect. He said he had been asked to give his views upon woman's suffrage. I was present at the meeting when the committee was named to ask him to say something for universal suffrage in bis oration on the Fourth. It was not supposed that any minister of thought could liave aught but the deepest interest in hav ing American women raised to the dignity of citizenship." B •> The following are the facts: A week before the Fourth I received a letter from the ." Women's Political Equality Club," stating that at the last meeting said club had passed a resolution requesting me to incor porate a plea for universal suffrage in mv oration on the Fourth. I replied in brief as follows: "Your communication received \ ou know my sentiments upon this 'question. I shall be glad to express them in uiy H." When ttPi'ivinn- tit. tliin «„;«.. :.. OMS OMSON.

When arriving at this point in my remarks I said : " Another danger that is threatening our republic is that which is popularly known as the woman's suffrage movement. I received a letter from the secretary of the "Woman's Political Equality Club" of this city asking me to " incor porate a pica for universal suffrage" in m v oration and I take this opportunity to express my views upon the question, etc etc." A comparison between what Critic reports me to have said and what I did say will show who was " incorrect " It may sound nice to say: "It was not supposed that any minister of thought could have aught but the deepest interest in having women raised to the dignity of citizenship," but as 11 matter of fact a number . of the members of the club knew perfectlv well my sentiments. The secretary had at least a half dozen conversations with ine on that subject. It seems very strange that when such a resolution was pending they did not state what they knew to be my views. What did the club mean i Did they think I would disregard my own opinions and that they could handle me as a puppet in a child's If Critic is as intelligent as wo believe she is, she must know that all that arrav of great names is no argument, that just as strong an array can be marshalled on the other side and from the writer's own church too, that the wisest of men are generally divided upon whether if woman was enfranchised she would help solve the temperance problem, or would complicate it. She was very unfortunate also in her proofs of what woman's suffrage had done. VV e all know Kansas government and politics have not been particularly creditable to any cause or to any country during the last two years, and as a matter of fact the population according to the Minneapolis Tribune has decreased 75,000 during that period. I wonder which are "the two great political parties of Kansas" now which are vieing with each other in recommending woman's suffrage? Another proof offered Of the success of this measure was Wyouiin" As wo are told by Critic that this "is tlfe solution of the temperance question and that Wyoming has had universal suffrage for 25 yours," we naturally look to Wyom- mgfor a conspicuous success in dealing with this groat evil. How do we find It? bne is far behind some other states Her liquor laws are not strict at that. Besides being incorrect in above particulars, the criticism breathes a spirit which cannot help its cause. The writer implies that because the speaker did not agree with her he is either a second-rate man" or ho is not a " minister of thought.

The matter of the appointment of G W. Skinner as consul to LaGuayra has assumed a more serious aspect the past week, and promises to develop some bad blood, Henry C. Shaver, the well- known Washington correspondent, who was with Gov. Boies when he spoke in Algona last, writes to Sunday's State Leader and'says: " A letter received by me from western Iowa under date of July 12 contains the paragraph quoted below: ' Yesterday I was informed that J. J. Richardson had notified G. W. Skinner of Bancroft, Kossuth county, that his appoint- as consul to LnGuayra, Venezuela, was agreed upon by those in charge of the matter at Washington, but I also learn that a vigorous protest by the democrats of Algona and other towns against nHh?? P °w t Ti nt Was fo "varded last night to Washington. I do not know Mr. Skinner, but it is said he is entire y without qualifications for that position and is a man without either capacity or character; that ho has a sHzh t loca endorsement, but that his appointment would be so distasteful to the party in Kossuth county that hu" dreds would bolt the ticket next fall"" Mr. Shaver then goes on and comments on the situation, and says: There must be some mistake about this matter. Mr. Richardson was in Washington shortly before the 12th of July and while here I happe'n to know he told an Iowa gentleman he was going over to the state department to see fm°htrf "I" 8 ' " foi ^ i§ ' n appointment for him. Leaving .for the west the same evening and not again seeing the gentleman before his departure, he wrote him from Davenport, saying that he fai ed to see Mr. Quincy, although he waited a long time for him to return to his office. Now it isn't at all D roba- ale that Mr. Richard,on cou d h,we made arrangements for the appointment to a consulship even for a man so .little known as Mr. Skinner appears to be, without having: seen Mr. Quincv Nor is t probable"t,hat he has pS false with the Iowa man who happened to be in Washington. Politicians-Iowa politicians at least-never do that kind of thing. Another point, Mr. Richard- bon is too near-sighted to have discovered, unaided and alone, so obscure a man as Mr. Skinner seems to bo If he is concerned at all in this matter he else'*" 3 suggestion of somebody JULY 26, 1803. the Dijfe Why, bless you, there is just as much difference in stores as there is in people, When you go into a nice, clean, well-kept grocery house you see the difference at a glance.

Stone died at Oklahoma City, O. T., last week, and the remains , were brought to Knoxville, this state, / for burial. Wm. M. Stone was governor of Iowa from ]864 to 1868, inclusive. Ho was elected governor while serving as colonel of the Twenty-second Iowa infantry and resigned to take the governorship He had just served a term in Libby prison. He was major of the Third Iowa infantry and was taken prisoner at Shiloh ou the second day of the battle. Ho was a judge on the bench in this district when the war broke out and raised Company B of the Third Iowa, which elected him captain, but else." Then Mr. Shaver goes on to give Mr Quincy, who is Secretary Gresham's chiet assistant, a brown roast at the conclusion of which he says: " This having been the method gov g Mr. Quincy's a tion in many oth or cases, why may it not be true that he and not Mr Richardson, is to blame in th s Bancroft case? I am not prepared to believe, upon the evidence before me, that Mr. Richardson has made such a political blunder as this appointment would appear to be." This attack, evidently inspired from Algona, means that a vigorous effor mil be made to defeat theSppointment Whoever is responsible for Mr. Rich ardson's letter, it has been received ana the appointment will follow if no change of plan is adopted. But the ap pointment has not been made it has rwnv? een a ? l>eed upon to be milde in October, and a contest may change the plan. Algona democrats are evidently preparing for the contest. uuu "y Republicans, of course, and republican papers have no hand in this quar- , e 1 v.^ u * lt . ls Proper for them to sug- fost that fair play demands that if Mr Dinner is to be beaten by a home " ' ' iter ne has won an appoint! hat good and sufficient reasons ought to be made public.
