Two weeks ngo 'THE UPPER DES' MOINES intimated that the Gate City could not quote an authority to support Its proposition that ;all the silver money could be thrown into the sea •without affecting the prices of commodities. The Gate City responds as follows: "Mr. Ingham has not written anything, if he wrote that, that so surprises us. He certainly knows that John Stuart Mill's Political Economy is tho world's standard authority in that field of acionce and that Mr. Mill's cardinal doctrine as to money is that money does not enter into or affect price. Certainly Mr. Ingtaam knows that as Amasa Walker has shown in his Science of Wealth, cotton and wheat are often at a low price when the volume of money is largo and at a high price when the volume of money is small. But everyone can see for himself now that when silver is merely a token money circulating at the value of gold and hcnco merely displacing so much gold, it is gold alotio that is considered and the silver is as if it did not exist at all. What does Mr. Ingham ivant authorities for when he can see facts for himself if he will only use his own brains.? Herein Iowa a spring chicken is soiling for the price of a bushel of wheat and a dressed turkey for the price of two bushels of wheat. Hero in tho Keokuk market in the last few days a watermelon sells for what a bushel of wheat has been selling for in Texas at the same time. Anybody should be able to see that silver has had nothing more to do with those prices than the man in the moon. And every dollar of silver could be thrown into the sea without affecting those prices an iota." First as to Mill's political economy. • The following sentences are quoted with due reference to the context: " If the whole money in circulation was doubled prices would be doubled." " If there were less money in the hands of the community and the same amount of goods to be sold, less money altogether would be given for them and they would bo sold at lower prices, lower, too, in the precise ratio in which the money was diminished." ".Suppose the money in the hands of individuals to bo increased, tho wants and inclinations of the community collectively in respect to consumption remaining exactly the same, tho increase of demand would other things had do- curredj having nothing to do with silver, and no assurance can be given that the destruction of silver would cause any increase in credit. In fact there is every reason to believe that the destruction of silver would still further depress credit and prices with it, robbing the people not only of actual money but also of the only available substi- tute.for it. If the volume of credit has been affected by silver some signs of it should have appeared away back in 1878. The fact is that the volume of credit was never greater than last year before President Harrison was defeated, and money was never easier to get. If these premises are correct there is nothing in the comparison of the prices of watermelons and wheat and chickens at Keokuk of consequence. For the purposes of this discussion it is unimportant what causes affect the price of any commodity at any time in any market. They are numerous. It is enough to show that tho general scale of prices of all commodities is determined by the volume of money. A watermelon may in April be worth §2 and in August 20 eents in Keokuk; a chicken may be worth one season $1 and another 25 cents; pork may be worth in Chicago ?19 a barrel at 9 o'clock and §10 a barrel at 10 o'clock; it may even happen that a staple commodity like wheat may'be low when money is plenty, and high when money is scarce, but all this does not affect the general fact that the prices of watermelons, chickens, pork, and wheat in the end are influenced by the money supply to be drawn upon in their purchase. Neither does the fact that invention and cheaper methods of production have gradually lowered the cards them. It establishes custom, eve gives moral sanction. It is a good thing i: a state platform. In .the shake up for seats iu congress w note that Mr. Dolliver was lucky. He ha, one of the best.in the house. Congress met Monday. .Speaker Cris was reelected. President Cleveland sen his message yesterday. It puts all the blame of existing conditions on the silve law and says the tariff is secondary. A prolonged fight between the silver and anti-silver forces is predicted by all. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. J. J. -Smart is candidate for state senator down in Humboldt. Photographer Medlar of Spencer won the silver medal at Chicago. A. C. Parker, the Spencer lawyer, is putting hot water into his house. An Emmetsburg man has raised 1- chickens from some fancy high pricec eggs. Now that they are grown the whole 14 prove to be roosters. West Bend Journal: The Algona normal and commercial school receives merited words of commendation from all who investigate its methods and re suits. The county fair-premium lists, printed at the Whittemore Champion office are out and will all be in the hands o: the secretary for distribution in a few days. Whittemore Champion: The merry go-round left for Algona Monday loaded on five wagons. The machine did a big prices of many if not of all staples, change the general rule. The variations may not be immediate, but they will come, as we should see if Mr. Clark's plan were carried out. It is a matter of common observation that when money is withdrawn from circulation and credit is flat all prices tend to decline. It can be seen now. It will be plainer this fall if this panic continues. For unless money is again put into trade and credit revives, corn- business here variously estimated .from $15 to §75 per day. Spirit Lake Beacon: John Dewitt Miller will deliver his best lecture, "The Stranger at Our Gates," at Algona on the evening of the 31st. Mr. Miller is a great entertainer. Hancock Signal: The Algona UPPER DES MOINES reports a little justice of the peace suit in which wound up the case a la the attorneys Sullivan. Al- reach all things equally and there would be a universal rise of prices." Discussing the whole question and making all qualifications on account of credit, the rapidity of circulation, and money not in circulation, Mill says: "That an increase of the quantity of money raises prices and a diminution lowers them is the most elementary proposition in the theory of currency, and without it we should have no key tojiny of tho others." Mill clearly points out thatitis'the volume of money in circulation, and no money hoarded, which goes to determ ining price, and he clearly points ou that credit makes the direct effect o actual money less marked on price, but he nowhere, that we can find, intimates much less claims, as Mr. Clark seems to indicate, that money does not "entei into or affect price." THE UPPER DES MOINES does not have access to Amasa Walker's works, but Francis A. Walker in his comparatively recent book on "Money" adopts Mill's language as well as opinions. He quotes Ricardo with approval: "That commodities would rise or fall in price in proportion to the increase or diminution of money I assume as a fact which is incontrovertible." Throughout this book the assumption is continuous that prices vary with the money supply, and the whole question of increasing money supply is discussed by him and the many economists he cites from the standpoint of prices. But Mr. Clark has a second proposition, and that is that silver is merely displacing gold, and therefore does not •now increase the money supply. In fact that the destruction of silver would have the effect to release gold now out of circulation. If this is so then there must have been for some years an unusual gold reserve in banks and private vaults, And this the facts do not seem to indicate. Tho reserve of gold either by the government or private institutions has not been greater than is needed at all times for safety, and whatever is done with silver this reserve must bo maintained. We doubt if a single bank or private business house has carried a larger reserve of gold in lute years than was absolutely necessary, or than it would carry whatever should be done with silver. If this is so all tho available gold has been in circulation and with it silver and paper have done the work of commerce. To destroy silver would bo to cut off nearly one-third of all the money, or nearly one-half of that in active circulation. Why is not Senator Allison right in saying that in such event there would be a fall of prices yet unheard of? But if it is true that silver is merely replacing gold because it is held at a gold standard, it is true also that all paper money is merely taking the place of gold, and Mr. Clark's proposition would apply to that equally, and it would come to this, viz: that nearly a billion dollars of the money of the United States, and that the money in actual circulation, could bo destroyed without affecting prices. It would be much more plausible to assert that the silver now in use had displaced and contracted tho volume of credit, and so was doing nothing to prjces, But credit was"not modities will go lower than ever before known in our history. It is not to be claimed that silver cuts the figure now that it would if it were standard money by international agreement. But to destroy it in the United States would very soon have a plainly seen effect on prices, while to destroy it in the world would be to bring on universal depression and bankruptcy. We still believe that Mr. Clark cannot quote a single standard authority to the contrary, or cite a fact in current contrary. history to the Some democratic papers are pitching into Gov. Boies, some into President Cleveland, but the Chariton Democrat is after the Iowa state central committee: "The democratic state central committee, as at present constituted, is an illegal body and posseses no power or authority of any kind, character or description. The whole thing is rotten from top to bottom and tho democrats of Iowa, in convention assembled at Des Moines, Aug. 23, will be inexcusably remiss in their duty if they fail to repudi ate the whole scheme and proceed to the election of a new state committee." Gov. Boies says that national issues are not involved in Iowa this fall. If that is so ,here might as well be no contest at all. <\>r with tho existing financial conditions the attention of the people can never be at- racted to anything else. The grand spectacular performance "The Last Days of Pompeii" has been secured in Des Moines during the state fair week. Henry Watterson is afraid Cleveland is going to drop tariff reform. Here is one of his late utterances: "Mr. Cleveland may forget the God that made him, but the democrats of the United States will not be lured away from tho great principle and purpose which have kept the party together, have brought it up from a mere aggregate of negations to a positive force, and whose inspirations fill its heart and brain from one end of the land to the other. The robber barons may exult over the temporary obscuration of tho tariff issue. They may gloat over the hope of having an apostate in the elected .chief of the tariff reform army." gona attorneys seem to be equal to any demand, either for wind or muscle. Sioux City Journal, Aug. 1: Mrs. Louisa Safford, mother of Rev. Mary A. Safford, had two paralytic 'strokes Saturday evening. She was conscious yesterday morning, but unable to speak. Miss Safford arrived yesterday morning from Chicago in response to a telegram. Al. Adams says we had better read that red book on two cent railway fares, as "It is the best argument we have seen in a long time against the reduction of railway fares." We havn't time to read either for or against railway rates. That is not the burning question this fall. Emmetsburg Democrat: Profs. W. N. Chaffee and D. E. Johnson of the Algona normal were looking after some advertising matter in this city Thursday. They are going about from county to county posting up placards that represent the merits of the institution with which they are connected. Hancock Signal: The Kossuth county democrats are having a local war over the selection of G. W. Skinner of Bancroft to succeed Phil. Hanna as United States consul at LaGuayra,. and it seems to be spreading. There are not enough of these snaps to go round and the hunery fellows who get left have nothing to do but kick. The Elmore Eye reports a serious race war up north. Two Norwegians, Scow and_ Bergset, imagined a grievance against a German neighbor named Smith and organized themselves for an attack upon their- supposed enemy, and were met at the gate by Smith, who informed them that he could break their necks in three pieces. The attacking party's courage failed them at this stage of the game and a retreat was ordered. Failing in their original design they swore out a warrant for Smith's arrest on the charge of threatening to kill and was discharged by Justice Wooley. DEATH BY HIS OWN HAND, Suicide of Adam Sawvel, Formerly a Kossuth County Han, at Des Moines Last Week. Tired of Life, He Took a Dose of Laudanum—Financial Troubles Said to Have Been the Cause. Will F. Muse is now part owner and business manager of tho Ottumwa Courier. He is one of the most whole souled, genial, and able men iu Iowa newspaper work and he has a good field. Congressman Hull is out for Lafo Young for governor. A. J. Balfour, the English leader and a man of authority on financial topics, said in a speech last weuk that " the gold standard could never satisfy the commercial wants. Tho double standard alone would prevent dangerous oscillations in trade. Ho deprecated isolated action by single governments and recommended an international agreement fixing the ratio between gold and silver." 'Embassador Bayard was present. A vote of thanks was extended to Balfour. J. W. Jarnigan is a candidate for state superintendent. Mr. Jarnigan is in charge of Iowa's educational exhibit at Chicago, is an active worker, and fully qualified for tho position he seeks. Ho is fully equal to any man yet talked of. Senator Funk says: "THE UWEK DES MOIXES would have tho republican party of Iowa pledge itself to the enforcement of all laws. This is exceedingly beautiful as Irwln Brothers' Circus. When one reads the announcement of a circus the first thought is of the numerous fakes, mermaids, sea serpents, humau horses, giants of unheard-of height and strength, with the word circus. Advertise that which you have and advertise not that which you have not, has always been the motto with the Irwin Brothers, proprietors of the finest and best show which solicits public patronage. You will not be deceived by visiting this show. Every feature advertised will certainly be exhibited, and this is saying a great deal, for never was there a circus so replete with new ideas, splendid features, and magnificent attractions as this one. One needs but a glance at the splendid list of attractions to be convinced of this fact. Not only do the best and most skillful gymnasts, acrobats, and aerialists perform their feats of wonderful daring, but there are wonder workers from the mikado's realm whose incomprehensible accomplishments are never equaled in any tented exhibition given on this continent. A menagerie of the most complete kind, the best collection of birds and beasts from the four corners of the earth, is to be seen without extra charge. In this collection are also to be seen three baby lions which wore born at the winter quarters, Jan. 18, 1893. They have been raised on a bottle, and children have fondled and played with them since their birth. They exhibit none of the ferocious desires of their parents. This is the first: opportunity you have ever had of see. ing baby lions, and you should not fail to take advantage of it, for such an opportunity may never be presented again. Avail yourself of the chance of a lifetime. The wild sports of the hippo, drome are given in tho most vivid and realistic way. They are the height of magnificence. This truly wonderful show will pitch its tents in this city for one day only on Wednesday, Aug. 16. Saturday's Des Moines dailies brought the report of the suicide of Adam Sawvel. We republish that of the Daily Capital: After a long and painful struggle, A. Sawvel, an old gray haired man of 60 years, succeeded in committing suicide by the laudanum route. He was tired of life, alone, penniless, and friendless. Late Tuesday evening he went to the Raccoon river bank near Second street, wrote a farewell letter and took a dose of the drug which he hoped would land him into eternity. This note was dated Aug. 1, at 2 p. m,, and is given below: DES MOIXES, Iowa. —Tired of this life. Forget me and forgive my shortcomings. I am no more. This is tho last of life, so good-bye. A. Sawvel, Aug. 1,1893, 2 p. m. But tho laudanum for some reason did not do its duty. The old man still lived. For six long hours he wrestled with death but it came not. Then he took another dose. Writing another farewell as follows, having probably forgotten he had written one earlier in the day: Eight o'clock when the act was done, August 1, 1893. All is well. I have lived out my useful days, have no money, no friends. I am sick for some time in the past. May all forget me soon. A. SAWVEL, I have laid this plan for some time and know that it will come to be executed, for I am tired of life since me notes have fell through. Good-bye to all. A. SAWVEL. It is now 8 o'clock p. in. But still he lived. Passers by saw :he old man lying in the brush, heard lim muttering to himself, but thinking le was merely intoxicated paid no fur- ;he.r attention to him. He laid there Wednesday and Thursday and till last evening, when someone suspecting that le was either dead or very ill, notified '.he police who removed him to the itation. He was then unconscious and •emained so till death, which occurred ate last night. It was learned that deceased former- y lived at Algona. While in this city he boarded at 1125 West Eleventh treet. When found Sawvel was de- ently dressed, but had evidently met vith misfortune and become dis'heart- ned. Upon his person the police found i commission issued by the Signal Mail Box company of St. Joseph under the ate of May 20, to W. E. Anderson and limself. There was also a receipt for 24, issued by C. S. F. Baker, president )f the company, and two memorandum books within which were two farewells to the world which .tell of the agonies he had passed through in his efforts to shuffle off this mortal coil. J. B. Bell of the labor bureau said Sawvel was a frequent visitor at his office, seeking employment. Mr. Bell also said Sawvel was a great "lady's man" and thinks his failure to "catch on" had something to do with his suicide. C. N. OLLIVER TALKS. Our old citizen, C. N. Olliver, whose wife is Mr. Sawvel's daughter, was seen by the Register reporter: My wife and I first learned this morning from the Register of the suicide of my wife's father last night, he explained. His full name is Adam Sawvel. He was 60 years of age and formerly resided in Algona, Kossuth county. He is the father of five <- children —three sons and two daughters—all living. A little over a year ago his wife was divorced from him because of his intimacy with another woman. After this he came to Des Moines to make his home with us. He has been a member of the Methodist church for over 30 years, and was also a member of the G. A. R. post in Algona. Up until within the last few years he has B. Jones. Mr. Jones says that Sawvel met him on the street and Mr. told about eight was an old en- the him that in opening his pocketbook to count his money on the bridge a $20 gold piece had slipped out and gone through the crack into the river. He was consequently a little short and wanted to go to Cedar Rapids, and if Mr. Jones would let him have $5 it would be a great help. Mr. Jones gave him the §5, and it was with this money undoubtedly that he made the trip. He evidently expected to get work of some kind. A GOOD MAN GONE WRONG. Mr. Sawvel came to Kossuth county about 1870, and with his family entered land over on Lotts Creek ' miles from Algona. He , „„ soldier, an active worker in the church, a man generally respected, and the father of a family of children who have taken good standing in life. Until two years ago not a thing derogatory to his character was suspected. At that time he had come to Algona to live, and having nothing to busy himself with, the devil according to tho adage gaged him. The full details of „„„ scandal were made known in the pleadings in court of his own filing. . These showed that he was charged with bas- tardy by a notorious widow living near him, and that to keep matters quiet ho had paid $700 to her agent. That later he had learned that tho agent had kept §160, and for this sum he brought suit, claiming that it was unlawfully secured. The case was never tried, but the pleadings are still in court. The public scandal brought things to a focus at the home and Mr. Sawvel was compelled to look for other quarters, and so went to Des Moines. SOME INTERESTING LETTERS.' The reference of Mr. Bell to Mr. Sawvel's being a great "lady's man" and his failure to "catch on" at Des Moines is sustained by the letters received by Mr. Crose. They show that instead of profiting by his Algona experience he seemed to have lost his moral stamina entirely. The lady's name is withheld, but her letters are interesting reading at this time. The first had the name D. W. Salmond, and Mr. Crose answered that there was no such man here and asked if she had not made a mistake in the name: Dear Sir: I wish to ask you a few questions as I am acquainted with a gentleman b .V. n . ame ° f D - W. Salmond. He lays he is soldier, 49 years old, has white hair and sandy board and fols teeth. He claims to be a widower and says he had 100 acres of land which has lots fruit and stock on which he rents and has six lots in town and has a boy 10 years old going to school. He has been here in the city nine months acting as agont. He is now looking land. As he claims to be friend of mine and my be- to know whether MESH TROUBLE IN CAlP, LuVerne Now Has the Pole with a Good-sized Democratic Postoffice Wai- on Hand. A Vigorous Protest is Made Against the Appointment of A. R. Darr—And the End is Not Yet. It is with some regret that THE UPPER DBS MOINES finds itself compelled to turn its attention to the southern political heavens. With the Skinner consulship at the north end, it has had all it could attend to in that direction, but now Gov. Boies' flat refusal to be a Moses again this year, and the uprising at LuVerne compel it as a faithful chronicler of the news to try and cover both fields. It regrets this LuVerne uprising also because it seems, like Mr. Skinner's success, to bo putting our Algona managers in the hole, and THE UPPER DBS MOINES has stood by them through thick and thin. But the news must be given however Bro. Ryan fares, and the news is as follows: About the time Cleveland was elected there were four candidates started pe- the ing widow I would like what he says is time. If you know anything about him in regard to what I have ritten please let me know. Tell me if he is widower as you know men don't always tell the truth. The second letter was dated July 20 and contained Mr. Sawvel's name written on a separate slip, possibly by himself. The letter shows that Mr. Saw vel had systematically deceived woman. In part it is as follows: He told me his wife was dead, but I wouldn't take any man's word for that because they will tell good stories to get good will of ladies. I have some property which my husband left me when he died and he ain't smart enough to get it. Monday's Register.adds the sequel to this story: A woman living on Des Moines street on the east side appeared at the police station yesterday morning and recognized the body also.' Itseems that Sawvel had made certain promises of marrying her, and when he wont to Cedar Rapids she did not know where he had gone. She sent inquiries concerning him to Algona which created considerable of a scandal in that place. Gov. Boles on Wheat. Here is a paragraph from Gov. Boies' famous letter of last year in which he said wheat would go up 30 cents a bushel if Cleveland was elected: We must have, and I believe we speedily will have, such a reduction of u matter of sentiment."

His wife, who is still living in Algona, will arrive tonight to take charge of thebody, What do you think of the theory of his taking poison on the 1st day of August? was asked. I believe the statement as found in his memorandum book is substantially correct. He left this city three weeks ago in company with W, B. Anderson for Cedar Rapids. Their intention was to sell the signal mail boxes in that city. Two days afterwards Anderson wrote me he was sick and asked me about getting him into the soldiers' home. He must have grown morose, and left Cedar Rapids before the 1st, for letters haye been forwarded to me for him which must have arrived there on that date. I see nothing to disbelieve in his statement that he committed suicide the night of Aug. 1. Ho was a strong man physically, and I do not credit the statement of his being around town a couple of days, for I think he would have come up to our house. No arrangement has yet been made for his interment, but it will probably be in this city in the old soldiers' burying ground. THE EFFECT IN ALGONA, The news proved a sudden shock in Algona where Mr. Sawvel was so well known, and in spite of his many short comings, his old comrades all expressed regret at his terrible death, many of them believing still that he was more "sinned against than .sinning." It brought out also all the late information about him. Note has been made about the letters received by County Clerk Crose from a Des Moines widow inquiring about his property here, That was some weeks ago. Last week the tariff tax as will let down the bars to the payment by foreigners for our farm productions and allow the Ataeri- can farmer to sell in every part of the world, taking in payment whatever the people he trades with have to pay with. We must, and I believe we soon will, in this manner secure a foreign market for twice as much as we now sell and thus bring a degree of prosperity to the American farmer such as he has never known. _ It is my judgment that by thus opening foreign markets to our farm products, the abolition of the protective tariff would now, as it did in 18J6, cause a permanent advance of not less than 30 cents on every bushel of wheat .15 on every bushel of corn and two or three on every pound of cotton -which could possibly be grown in this country. And it is my further judgment that, the prosperity of the farmer would not centl out for the LuVerne postoffice with titions. Among them was A. R. Darr a farmer living about five miles out of town. Ho claimed that he had the promise from Bro. Ryan and Jas. Taylor before election, but that did not scare the other throe. He got some signers to his petition, most of whom, our reporter informs us, have since gone back on him. The other candidates were Robertson, the grain buyer, Lichty, a hardware dealer, and Patterson, a liveryman, all well-known business men of the town. Each got a good list of signers, and there the whole matter hung fire till about three weeks ago. At that time both Patterson and Lichty pulled out and their friends went to Robertson, who got up a new petition and got fully nine tenths of tho democratic patrons of the office to sign it. Then according to our veracious reporter he applied to Bro. Ryan, who said he would indorse no one until the matter was settled among the local democrats. But last week as our dispenser of "choice offices" was going to Washington, he stopped off, had a talk with Darr, didn't see any other democrats, and endorsed Darr. A remonstrance was at once started by Patterson and Lichty, a copy of which is as follows: To the Fourth Assistant Postmaster General: we, tho undersigned, petitioners, re- pectfully request that A. R. Darr be not appointed postmaster at LuVerne, Iowa We give as our reasons: ' 1. That he is not qualified or competent to till said office. 2. He is not the choice of the democrats. 3. That J. J. Ryan of Algona is the person who is trying to pet his appointment, well knowing that he is not the choice of the people. 4. That he got a number of names to his petition by stating that he was the only applicant for the office, and that he had the office sure, as it was promised to him before election. Now we respectfully request that if you decline to appoint J. A. Robertson, (who has nine-tenths of the democrats on his petition, and who is not only competent and qualified, but is the choice of the people) that the matter be settled by an election Mr. Darr has been a resident of the town only four or five months and has always used his influence against tho town, consequently his appointment would be an insult to the business men of LuVerne. This remonstance has 184 signers, who are patrons of the office, no one refusing to sign it. The daily papers state that Darr is appointed. If this remonstrance arrives before the commission was issued, he may not get the office. But the chances are that he is to be the Nasby, even though, as it is ar- serted, ho could not get 10 votes in Lu- Verne in an election. This in detail is tho painful situation. It is not our fight and wo put it before our readers like any other tragedy. We hope yet to be able to vindicate Bro. Ryan, but tho horizon is very dark. Our sympathies are not with I""" this time, for Mr. Darr repudiated Gloriana"and the opera house in language both vigorous and loud. Then when ho bought the drug store at Lu- Verno the people protested against giving him a permit to dispense " campaign material." Mr. Robertson is an excellent young man, popular in Lu- Verne, one of tho three young Scotch- men who came to the county 12 years ago, and in every way qualified for a. number one postmaster.
