Ho Is Put on the Prohibition Ticket for Governor in Place of L. S. Cofflin, who Declined. The Parson's Candidacy Possesses a Local Interest—He Built the Methodist Church in Algona. The committee of the prohibition party met at Des Moines Saturday and nominated Rev. Bennett Mitchell as candidate for governor in place of L. S. CoHln, who declined. It is reported that Rev. S. N 1 . Fellows and Rov. Emory Miller both declined the place. It is also reported that B. P. Wright of Charles City held a more than willing front to the committee, but was passed by much to his discomfort. The nomination of Rev. Mitchell has a local interest in Kossulh. He came to Algona in 1873 as presiding 1 older of the district and held that position until 1877. Then he tool: the local church and remained until 1880. He built a home, educated his family here, and all liis children remained when he went, to his new charge. His son, David Mitchell, is still a resident of the place. He early took an active interest in the Algona college, which had just been adopted by the Methodist conference, was a member of the board of flirectors, in his work showed the stubborn determination which is his chief characteristic. But it is as the builderof the Methodist church that he will be longest remembered in Algona. The society had been using the college hall for services, and during his last .year Rev. Mitchell decided that a church building was a necessity. The board of church man- igers were not united in favor of it, and tie promptly requested all who opposed to resign. This led to a big quarrel at the outset, which lasted as long as he remained. The more lukewarm the rnembers were the more his zeal dndled, and if all the stories of what lie did could be collected they would 311 a volume. He hauled nearly all the rock for the foundation with his own team, with the help of one man moulded and burned the brick. It is authenticated that he sold his cow to get money 'or the work. Among more doubtful- stories is one that one Sunday evening as he was preaching his son brought word that the lire was going out in the idln, and that there was no wood. Rev. Mitchell brought the service to a hurried close, got his team out-in short order, and hauled a load of wood. He worked with tremendous vigor, sacrificed everything he could and pressed on. The church was not completed during his term, but'was finally dedicated and for 13 years has done good service. If Rev, Mitchell and Gov. Boies could be disintegrated and rolled together, the combination would be splendid. The one has a spinal column like a block of Vermont granite, but not much sagacity. The other is shrewd and plausible enough, but has a sort of cotton string backbone. If Bennett should be elected governor the laws would be enforced if he had to go about with his pockets full of hand- suffs and apply them himself. There is not a man in Iowa of more unbending determination, nor one who arouses more needless antagonism. How set he is is shown by_ his determination to have a prohibition candidate in the field, although the only effect of the candidacy will be to help Gov. Boies, and probably Gov. Boies is not more thoroughly despised by anyone in Iowa than by Bennett Mitchell. Up through northern Iowa, where he is well known, he will get few votes. Ho is a good fighting frontier parson, but he has few of the qualifications that fit a man for the office of governor. It Should Be in Kvcry House. J. B.
