FJIANK M. CIIAFFJSK. THEcentenijil of tholuyingof thccor nor stono of the capitol at Washington occurred Monday. The building wn begun Sept. 18, 1798, the 13th year o independence and in the first year o Washington's second term. In 1814 i was burned by the British soldiers, bii a lucky rain storm put the lire out bo fore the walls had been damaged. In 1827 the building was again completed and had then cost $2,-433,814. In 185( the building was .remodeled, and in 1851 President Fillirjoro laid the corne stone of the present south 'wing anc Daniel Webster delivered the oration A now dome was also ordered. In 186' both wings and the big dome wore >coin pleted and the total cost of the capito had been brought to $13,000,000. 1 great many .minor improvements hav Binee. been made but the eapitol is no\ as it was then left. The statue of lib orty on the dome stands 375 feet abov< the Potomac, and looks out over th' . beautiful city planned by L'Enfant n it now stands away back when it wa first chosen as the capital city. THE Courier this week furnishes a half-column of solid nonpariel poetry entitled " Seal; Came Back," and use more space in crediting THE TJpPEr DBS MOINES with one of the Des Moines News' pieces of advice than i would take to refer to Gov. Boies' ob jections to third termisrn, but still fail to even notice one of ^he governor' most studied utterances. Gov. Boie addressed a letter of advice to his partj in which he said: " I am conscientiously opposed to thin terms in an office us important as that .o governor of a grent state nnd in this viev the unbroken precedents of all politica parties in our state teach that my views an In substantial accord with those of tin masses of all our people." The Courier has refused to give it readers the benefit of .this letter. Anc it cannot claim that lack of space is re eponsible, for if it has room for so mucl attention to Mr. Sessions, it certainly has enough to allow Gov. Boies to ge a fair hearing. Does the Courier con flider Gov. Boies' opinion on third-term ism good for anything? Is he in sub fitantial accord with the masses of the people on this point? If he is wrong about this what reason is there for ac cepting his views on other matters? THROUGH a miss in proof reading last week no division was made betwoor an article from the Dos Moines News and some introductory remarks by T UPPER DES MOINES, and the result was that we seemed to be giving the News .advice as our own. Now wo have more regard for Bro. Hamilton than manj republicans do, but when it comes to endorsing Jake Freeh as a loader ol public sentiment in Kossuth and saying "The temperance voters of Kossuth should follow Mr. Freeh's example in largo numbers." We want it distinctly understood that the News and we are not on the same platform. Ever since Jake explained his method for promoting temperance sentiment and the 'circulation of the Courier in the same quarters wo have been satisfied that ho was too versatile for a safe leader of public thought. His scheme to run a prohibition-democratic paper in Bancroft was not quite BO bad, as the News, if wo understand the practical purport of its policy, shows that this will succeed. Jake's letter and the News article are an example of the humor of the campaign, and we regret that a wrong punctuation mark should have spoiled a good joke. ^^^^^^^^^^^ THE Cherokee strip, which was opened Saturday, is 180 miles long and 58 miles wide. Besides the townsites there are 36,500 homesteads in it. At noon 76,000 people began a race across the border to secure claims. It is said that at least half of the land is hopelessly barren, and only a small portion of it really desirable, but the people »ere there to take it all and to give the towns 1,500 population each the day, Thj0 *• strip," as it is called, i lies along the Kansas state line. I was given to the Cherokee Indians by the government In 1824 as a connecting link between their reservation and hunting grounds in the mountains, am was known as the Cherokee outlet The action of the boomers, who Invad ed this and Oklahoma, compelled th government to buy the strip back from the'Cherokeesand to open it. The scenes attending this 'opening have caused a protest against any fur ther opening of public lands in th same way. Many died of sunstroke waiting for the signal, and in the race which followed many more were in jured. At some points water becatn scarce, and everywhere 'the settler suffered every conceivable inconven ience. The crazy rush can only rosul in disappointment, as there are thre settlors to every tillable piece of land THE Iowa senate is to lose one of it picturesque figures. L. R. Bolter, th solemn visaged democrat of the oli school from Harrison county, has bee: shelved. The figures seem to indicat that, the old war horse was disposed c summarily, as ho only had five votes i the convention. Lafe Young's notic of his political decease is interesting They were in the senate together an were as unlike as nature co'uld rnak them, and usually squarely on opposit sides of all questions. Lafo says: " There are some indications that the nox Iowa general assembly may be an uncoi stitutibual body. Certain it is that it wl be without its constitutional adviser. Fo Lemuel R. Bolter of Harrison county ha been defeated for a renomination to th state senate. This unexpected event too place at Missouri Valley on the forenoon o Tuesday, Sept. 12. There is no mistak about it. Wo find the proceedings in du and regular form in the Missouri VaUe Times, that rock-rooted democratic orga edited by Hon. Daniel M. Harris, a demo crat from away back, who was at one tim born In the mountains of Tennessee Lemuel B. Bolter has been a member o the Iowa general assembly in one branch o the other ever since the woods were burnec During his service of more than 20 years 1 has been his mission to summon the spir: of the fathers to bear witness to the de generacy of our present times and the un constitutionality of the measure pending Bolter's career has been an exceptional on in Iowa politics. He has been a stayer an was supposed to be invincible." THE Rock Rapids Review still in sists that the republicans are playin fast and loose with the people becaus they do not specify the exact legisla tion they propose to enact for restrain ing saloons, and say simply thatitsha! be consistent with the maintenance o the present law where it now is or ca be enforced. It then quotes some pa per which has gone on to advocat some plan of its own, and lays this u against the party'as a whole. We d not see the force of this. A hundre plans may be proposed, but if they fo! low the platform the broad lines tha bound all of them are plain to a waj faring man. Any of them jnay b adopted or rejected in the end, bu when one is adopted every citizen \vi know its general purpose, which is a that is important in the public discus sion of any law. The details of legisla tion can safely be left to those wh frame it. But the Review, having shown a earnest desire for no double dealing, i respectfully requested to cast its eye o some other seeming incongruities tha we have no doubt will be as offensive t it as this republican plank. For in stance two years ago Gov. Boies advo catefl the free coinage of silver and no\ he adopts the theory of the gold con tingent that fear of our silver dolla has brought on panic by causing for eigners to draw our gold away. Anc again last year his party agreed to nom inate a candidate for the United State senate in the interests of popular gov eminent, and now it says absolutelj nothing about the matter, although senator is to be chosen. And agair Gov. Boies says the people have wiselj decided that no man should be choser to a third term as governor, and yet hi and his party are now urging that thi time-honored precedent be broken. How does the Review classify these conditions in its category of politica' two-sidedness? Lawrence T. Neal, running for governoi of Ohio, does not agree with Gov. Boies Although Ohio does not elect a United States senator this year, and the state elec tion might properly turn on local issues Mr. Neal says: "Two questions of great lublic interest, one temporary in its char ictor and effects, the other further reaching n its effects, now command our thoughtful consideration—the silver issue and the tar ff issue." Heroin Iowa Gov. Boies says icithor one should be considered. That is one of the main troubles with the democrat c party; it don't stand for the same thing n any two states. « Farmer Coffin says to prohibition republeans: "I fear that leaving the partj' ust at this crisis will only insure the sues of the saloon party." The Keeley Gold Cure league had a meet- ng at the world's fair lust Thursday. There were 1,200 delegates representing 00 clubs, who marched with Dr. and Mrs. Ceeley. They were received at the adrnin- stration building and then went to the Illi- ois building, where numerous addresses vero delivered. The delegates were at- ended by their happy wives, sisters and uughters, all wearing the league badges, rhe league was invited to the Colorado uilding, where mineral water on ice was he, refreshment. ^—.—_ What is known us the Faribuult school Ian has been abandoned. The Catholics entod their parochiul school to the public chool board, to bo managed b,y it, Catholic teachers being retained. This is what caused the discussion between Archbishop Ireland and other prelates, resulting In his endorsement by the pope and the llbera sentiment towards public schools by the church. Win. McKinley and L. T. Neal have opened their campaign in Ohio. Bothrepre Sent their parties on national issues ant Ohio will vote accordingly. Neal was on of the three free traders who spoke in the Chicago convention, which adopted the substitute tariff plank Cleveland ran on He is a fighting anti-protectionist. Directum lowered the stallion trotting record to 2:00)^ at Chicago Friday, an Flying Jib paced in 2:04, Mascot's record Nancy Hanks has not yet reached her rec ord of last year. The Catholic ceremony at Dubuque Sun day was the most magnificent ever seen it the west. Bishop Hennessy was mad archbishop. All the high dignitaries in America wore present. Thos. Jefferson used to call interna revenue "infernal revenue," and that wa a cardinal doctrine of democracy until lately Now Secretary Carlisle practically en dorses a scheme proposed by David A Wells to raise the internal revenue taxe from a total of §181,000,000 to $245,000,000 That shows how political principles change The supreme court of California ha rendered a timely decision. In a divorc case the district judge ordered the paper to make no reference to the proceedings One paper paid no attention to the orde and was lined for contempt. The edito appealed and the supreme court has sus tained his appeal. It holds that the com munity has a right to know what is done i court. Senator Allison spoke in fo,vor of repea. ing the Sherman purchase clause Saturday In answer to a question he said that silve would be reinstated by foreign agreemen before long. When asked if stopping pui chase of bullion hero would aid in that re suit he said that was a matter of opinion Gov. McKinley expressed the commo. sentiment last week: " The silver produc of the country should not be discriminate against, but some plan should be devise for its utilization as money, which shal insure, not the displacement of gold, bu the safe and free use of both as exchange among the people." Keeping the world's fair open till Jan. is being discussed. Effort will be made t extend the time of closing beyond Oct. 15 month anyway. IF THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. V. B.

Johnson was shot an' killed by Charles Preston near Em rnetsbui'g last Thursday. The row wa over a division of corn. Preston es caped. The Epworth league young people o Mason City got up a home talen "Midway Plaisance." If they were a all realistic they undoubtedly were wel patronized. E. J. Hartshorn arid W. G. Henry o Emmetsburg went to get claims in th Cherokee strip. We would like t_ have been there and seen them wher the race began. Sheriff Narey of Spirit Lake captured a couple of safe crackers last week They had ?2,400 on them which thei had taken in Dakota. It was a plucki act, as they were well armed. Burget of Humboldt never shows u| on a race track without a balky horse Last week at Forest City his pacei reared and fell, damaging his sulky, bu not killing him. Burget is a terror to man and beast. Liverraore Gazette: Ike Morris and wife were in town this week. Ike has been employed as telegraph operatoi at Algona, but has now gone to Whitte more as landlord of the Grand Centra hotel at that place. Erametsburg Reporter: Col. R. H. Speneor has entered the race as a candidate for county treasurer in Kossuth county. Unless things have changed materially in late years the colonel will be a winner. Jordan, by Baymont, the Emmets mrg pacer, won his pace at Mason Dity, and at Milwaukee, Aug. 31, broke ;ho track record, pacing the second loat in 2:12. He has won every race 10 has started in this season. The Mason City Republican in writ- ,ng up the schools says: The superin- .endent's office is in this building and ,he high school, which will this year be presided over by Prof. P. H.

Prof. Goo. E. Reed is candidate for -ounty superintendent over in Clay ounty. The Reporter says: Prof, teed has obtained considerable repu- -ation in northwest Iowa as an educator and his qualifications for the office he eeks are the best. He has an espe- ially warm circle of friends in Spencer, vho will take great interest in his can- "idacy and will do all they can to see dm nominated and elected. Burt has been having a sort of a world's fair at Silver Lake. The Montor says: Last week about 35 of our oung and older people went to Silver ake, Minnesota, for a few days' outing, eturning Monday. The Burt Cornet and gave an afternoon concert there n Sunduy to which hundreds of visit- ors were present and complimented the boys on their success as furnishers of pleasant melody. Friday evening a portion of the party participated in the grand ball given by Benj. Franklin, who is contemplating making Silver lake a leading summer resort. Last Saturday the Burlington passenger train going south from Livermore killed a man named Ernest Bitt nor* The Gazette says: The man was driving home from town, where he hnc been with a load of hay, and foolishlj attempted to beat the train over across ing. The engine struck the wagon just behind the horses and reduced i' to kindling wood and killed Bittner who had been married only six months About two weeks ago a man and a woman came into LuVerne and en gaged room and board at the Larimei house, registering as Geo. T. Basyeanc wife, Pipestone, Minn. The New's says The man was a manufacturer of various trinkets and curios from the red stone peculiar to the locality from which the; hailed and spent some time endeavor ing to sell them about the town. He was a man of somewhat pleasing ad dress, intelligent and able to converse upon many different subjects of inter est, and he impressed those he me about town as a man entitled to tin usual measure of respect and confidence The pair continued to partake of th hospitality of the hotel until Tuesday of last week, when the woman departec for other parts and the man remained until Saturday night, when he tired o his surroundings and silently stole away, leaving behind him the unpaid board bill of himself and partner o about $15. He left behind him a smal grip sack, but it and its contents woulc not compensate for any very consider able portion of his indebtedness to th( house. Mr. L. does not know, of course which way his slippery customer went and thinks it better not to throw awa; good money in trying to find him, bu' would like right well to know of hi whereabouts.

The Atlantic Canning company ha canned over 2,000,000 cans of corn am will make the output nearly 3,000,00 cans before the last of next week This exceeds the output of any cannini factory in the world. A Dubuque landlord sued lately fo rent on a building. The defendant se up that he rented it for a saloon, anc that no right existed to collect rent foi a building used for an illegal purpose The landlord failed to collect. Down near Keokuk PleasantHoskins being troubled by watermelon thieves trained a shot gun on the patch with i string tied to the trigger. He after wards forgot about the trap anc stumbled over string, receiving a heav; load in the back. The doctors are nov trying to save his life. It is reported that a gang of kodak detectives are out on the Milwaukee railway lines and that they will photo grap^h every employee caught drink ing in saloons. This rule was begun on the Rock Island last May and has re suited in the discharge of over 00( employes. A LeMars man is credited with in venting an arrangement which pre< vents dogs from howling. A smal! rubber tube runs from the side of hie mouth to the center of his ear anc whenever he barks or howls the sounc is increased by a mechanical arrangement, similar to a phonograph. This multiplied sound strikes on the drum of the dog's ear and frightens him so that he ceases his howling. In 1892, at the request of State Superintendent Knoepfler, a vote of the school children of Iowa was taken for i state tree and a state flower. As ihere was not a majority for any single ;ree or flower, a second vote was taken in 1893, the choice to be confined to the oak, maple, and elm for tree, and rose, mnsy, and golden rod for flower, the ihreo leading candidates of 1892. The second contest resulted in a victory for ;he oak and rose. The number of votes cast was not very large. Frank D. Jackson had a rousing opening meeting at Sigourney. As to iemperanoe legislation he said that that rests wholly with the people: "I un content to leave this question in the lands of the republican party, which has ever been found true to the best in- •erests of temperance and morality, and which, against the united and 'bitter opposition of the democratic party, has jiven to the state of Iowa every sen- .ence of legislation they have ever hud upon this subject for the last quarter of century." The following story is told on one of jur Milwaukee conductors. He had a >pozy excursion party on the train not ong since, and had to shake him to jet him awake. Finally, however, he iroused enough to know what was wanted and passed oufc a mutilated one ollar bill. "I can't take that," said he man of gold lace. "That's all ight," blurted the reveler. "You on't have to; turn it over to the com>any." And the weary head fell back n a graceful repose amid the howls of he onlookers. The conductor kept he-bill. v St OOtfNflES, Iowa Had Jnst That .Kind of a in i860, and It Was Declared Unconstitutional— Some History Concerning it— Local Option Is n. Dead Duck In Hnwkcyodom. A number of Algoniahs were discuss ing whether a local option law would be constitutional or not last Friday when Senator Chubb brought up 't curious chapter of county history which everybody nearly had forgotten. He asserted that the state enacted a loca option law in 1869, and that under i Kossuth had voted as a county on pro hibition. The others disputed this and he appealed to several old settlers to bear him out. But not one re membered any such election or law As he remembered attending severa meetings, however, in the canvass, he decided to look the matter up, and found the old law in the session laws and also the record of the vote in the county. As the whole question of loca option is up for discussion this law wil be of interest. After providing fora prohibition of liquor selling under pen allies the adoption of the law was lef to a vote by counties. The section o interest reads: At their regular session in June of each year the board of supervisors in each 01 ganized county in this state shall detei mine whether the adoption of the provision of this act shall be submitted to the lega voters of the county at the ensuing genera election, and if the supervisors so declare by resolution to be spread upon the record of said board, also to be published for fou consecutive weeks next preceding said eloc tion in one or more newspapers in sai county, if one there be, and if not, then b posting the same in three, public places! each township of said county ; there ma be written or printed on each ballot cast a said election, either of the sentences follow ing, to wit: "For Prohibition;" "Agains Prohibition;" and, if a majority of all th votes cast at such election in said county b ;• For Prohibition," then, and not othei wise, shall the provisions of this act bo i full force in said county from and after th first Monday in January next following sai election, and the board of supervisors sha so declare by resolution to be spread upo their records. In accordance with this act the Kos suth board on June 13, 1870, adopted resolution which was ordered printec in THE UPPER DBS MOINES. Th members of the board were D. Rice Abbe Fife, L. K. Garfield, and O. F Hale. The election was held in Oc tober, under the old law, and 420 vote were cast. Of these 374 were for pro hibition and only 46 against. At the s^ime election the county votet on prohibiting stock from running a large. There were 424 votes of whic' 272 favored letting the cattle have free range. Both the local option la\ and herd law were afterwards decide unconstitutional, on the ground, we be lieve, that the legislature could no leave it to the counties to decid whether they would adopt a law or not This history has many interestin, features. That the county only ha 424 voters in 1870, and that it vote' eight to one for prohibition are hot! worthy of note. Whether all loca option laws by counties would be un constitutional is in dispute. But w believe that the county would give a big a majority against local option no\ as it did for prohibition then. Loca option is a dead duck. If there isn' brains enough in Iowa to get up better liquor law than that the stat had better import some statesmen.
