TfiEresolutions adopted by the convention Friday state very fairly the attitude of the republicans of the county, And suggest several desirable reforms. The one pledging Mr. Sessions to oppose local option will be of chief interest, because the matter being relegated to the legislative districts and 0«r district convention having been held, there had been no declaration made of the sentiment here. It makes public and definite what Mr. Sessions' position is in the campaign, and draws a sharp issue on local option between, him and Mr. "Lund. A needed change in the method of selecting supervisors is suggested. Although our boards are fairly enough distributed as it is, and although there is not so much in the question of locality as is often thought, still in a county as large as Kossuth there should be a definite division into districts. The resolution on good roads in a general way endorses the action of the board of supervisors in their work of the past .year. The resolutions ; are all good and will commend themselves to the people of the county. A NATIONAL DISGRACE. The more -the appointment of Van Alen as ambassador to Italy is discussed the more scandalous it appears. Mr. Whitney and Mr. Van Alen have -both denied that there was any agreement at the time the $50,000 was contributed that he should >have the place, and both say that it was .after Cleveland had won that the appointment was agreed upon as a reward for faithful services. This in answer to ibhe<direct statement of'the New York World, an equally good democratic authority. It is not denied that Horace White raised the $50^00 to be returned to Mr. Van Alen if he would free Mr- Cleveland from the necessity of appointing him, and that he refused to do so. Following the Whitney letter, Mr. White, who is editor of the New York Evening Post and one of Mr. Cleveland's main supporters,, has written, and he says: "Mr. Whitney's explanation does not alter the situation in the slightest degree. On the contrary It is dn substantiation of every allegation that .has been made concerning the nomination of Mr. Van Alen. The truth stands out .as clearly as possible that Mr. Van Alen received this nomination not because of any special qualification for the office, but because he contributed $50,000 to help elect President Cleveland. Mr. Whitney himself emphasizes this in his let-; ter of June 20 to the pnesident, as anyone can see who reads the letter carefully." But aside from the 'question of bar- : gain and sale of one of the highest positions in the gift oi the government,! the Van Alen appointment, on the. showing made by hi€ friends, is a scandal to the country. Harpers' Weekly; accepts Whitney's version of the transaction and sustains the appointment, and here is its report iof the man who ia to be honored: "Mr. Van Alen is a Harvard graduate and a gentleman of wealth and leisure who has lived in England and .Newport. He is devoted to society and sports. Very recently he took an interest in the politics of his native country. His entrance into politics was inspired by his admiration for President Cleveland. Beyond this he preferred the democratic party because he did not like the protective tariff." Nothing can be said for Van Alen further than that what little time he spends in the United States is as a swell society man of Newport, and that, being more than half English, he is in favor of free trade. Whether Van Alen had the promise of the appointment when he gave his $50,000, the fact remains that the contribution is the only reason for his appointment, and in the long run it amounts to the same thing. The democratic Dubuque Telegraph sums the case up when it says "he is without other reeomendation or qualification. In the bidding for the place Alen offered the most and it was knocked down to him," ft heavy tax Oft the ttopof let fof the prlvalege of selling here. Itt •ofle case it furnishes direct protection, Iftthe other It collects part of our revenue out of the Canadian, thus in' directly effecting tho same result, Wheat, eggs, and hay may all be produced as cheaply here as In Canada, the ^European market price for each •may be the same, the surplus exported may go in the same vessels, but all that does notohnnge the fact that eggs in New'York, hay In Buffalo, wheat in Minneapolis, barley in Seattle, are furnished by our own producers ex* clusively or by Canadians after paying a heavy tax to get In, And because Canadians have heavy freight charges to meet if they ship to their own markets, and find there a limited demand, they can afford to pay the tax to sell to our consumers who are in near by cities, [t is the convenience of our cities to the Canadian border which makes the tariff on their wheat, hay, eggs, etc., a peculiar benefit to this country. Mr. Jackson's statements were in exact ac- icord with the facts. «t-science as It 3s n6w there i< no excuse for such ft Shabby publlcatidn aft the loWft com- htfve issued. Does Kossuth county want saloons as provided by the Schmidt .bill! That is the question every citizen Should think about. It is seriously proposed to bring* back old local option days of local quarreling, saloons In one town and not in the next, in country townships and n&t in incorporated towns. A vote for the republican candidate is a vote against this system. Senator Brower is editor of a new daily in Mason City. ^ The'XJarroll Herald refers to the retirement df Senator Mack of Storm Lake and says: "We thought when he made that speech in the-conventlon against the Struble amendment that ho was what the boys call 'breeding a sore on his nose,' politically. But some men Would rather make a speech than be senator." Senator Bolter Says That Point Hag Been Reached in the History of the Iowa Democracy, FRANK D. JACKSON referred to the charges against him as a pension attorney 16 years ago in his speech Monday evening at Independence, where the transaction took place. At the close of his remarks the old soldiers arose and gave him a rousing cheer. He said: " Hsre in Independence, among the people with whom my boyhood and early man hood were spent, and who know me better than any other people know me, I want, upon beginning my speech, to refer to a matter which has been in this campaign personal to myself. I want to meet this 'here and tell you the truth about it. There is nothing in my life that I am not willing ifor the people of Iowa to know. This charge is revived from the campaign of 1886, when I was a candidate for secretary of state, and failed to injure me then. It refers to what lam willing to admit was an error of judgment in my early business career. In my zeal to serve a union soldier deserving of a pension, I was led to do that •which I soon saw was a mistake. I admitted It then, and I admit it now. But it was an honest mistake, and I never intended to use pnd never did use or offer to use one cent of money in any sense of moral wrong. The pension bureau granted the pension on its merits as I had urged, and I never received a cent from the pensioner. 'Imever was reimbursed for the money I ihad advanced for expenses, or compensated for the work that I had done. That I was guilty of no moral wrong in the Judgment of the government was proved by my reinstatement as an attorney in the interior department. That the people of Iowa, after being informed of the charge, saw no guilt on my part, has been shown by two elections as secretary of state. I have never kept the matter as a concealed or hidden thing, and have always discussed it frankly and plainly. So I now admit that it was an errror of judgment, the same as many people better than I have made, or that any young or old man is liable to make. With this statement here among my old neighbors, whose respect and good will are dearer to me than any public office, I am content to submit it all to the candid inspection and considerate judgment of the people of ilowa." THE Courier ridicules the argument made by Mr. Jackson in fayor of a tariff against Canadian products and says: "Protected 80 cents a bushel against Manitoba wheat, when Manatoba wheat and Jowa wheat travel on parallel lines and perhaps on the same ship to Liverpool to find a market, where the price of the wheat ofthe world is fixed. Protected against Canadian hay that is raised on little cleared »pote IB the woods. Protected against dwmdian eggs that can be layed ao much cheaper tba» they c»n here.

Albion W. Tourgee, writing of the republican congressmen who helped Cleveland in his fight against silver in the lower house, says: "They had an opportunity to win something—to make themselves respected— but they went into a belly-race to see which should get soonest to the toe of the dictator. There was nothing to be gained by such a course, and all they had a chance to win (they threw away, as he so clearly shows. It makes me sick." <Hon, E. G. Morgan, one of the early pioneers of northern Iowa, died at Chicago a week ago Sunday, and was buried at Fort Dodge'last Sunday. He was a land owner in Kossuth, a frequent visitor in Algona in early days, and a prominent man in Iowa. an eloquent the election Congressman Dolliver made protest against the repeal of law Menday. Chicago day .at the world's fair beat all records. The crowd that passed the gate Monday numbered 725,000. The fact is so&pparentthat no local option law of any kind can be passed as a republican measure that further discussion is useless. Here is a sample of dozens of items, this coming from the Livermore Gazette: " Mr. Finch states positively that he will certainly vote against the repeal of the prohibition laws as they now stand in this state. In this ho will be representing his constituency." Mr. Pinch will be i;j the legislature from Humboldt. * Gov. Boies says the only issues are state matters.

Following is Senator L. it. Bolter's etter to the chairman of the populist itate committee, in full: Hon. R. G. Scott, Des Molries, Iowa.— Dear Sir: Your kind letter of the 20th Inst. duly received and all must admit the truth of what you say. Yes, we have come to a parting of the ways. A political revolution s upon us. The lines are rapidly forming, jut arc not yet so distinct as to be visible to the unaided eye. The day for separating ;he sheep from the goats or rather from the Wolves, draws near. The question now Is whether our system of government shall be Dlutocra-' : .c or democratic. The American icople today are the greatest debtor people in the earth and these debts, though represented in different forms, are largely helc by Great Britan. To adopt a single gold standard at this time, under such clrcum stances would be equal to, aye worse than, placing a British guard over every house, The fraud of 1878, miscalled an act of congress, should uncondltipnally and withoul time to debate, be repealed. Nor should congress stop hero. A full legal tender pa per mouey should at once be provided foi iind enough issued, directly by the government, not only to relieve the present stringency, hut sufficient in quantity to do the vast business of tho country on a "pay-as you-go" principle. The stupendous crime of placing chattel mortgages on children not i yet born, by using bonds payable by some future generation, should not only forever hereafter cease, but an attempt so to do should be regarded and punished, not as a high misdemeanor merely, hut as a cowardly and wicked felony. I am a candidate for no office whatever, nor do I ever again expect to be, hence this is not sent to captivate the populace merely. Nor is it a new-horn zeal nor a recent Inspiration, for all who know me best are well, aware that these have been my oft-expressed sentiments long before there was a greenback party, long before there was any party formed, pledging itself to such principles. Had always hoped and believed, however, that should the democratic party, in whose cause I have faithfully labored all iny manhood's years, come into power, It would adopt these or similar measures at once, or without unnecessary delay. I find, however, that the power of patronage now seems to be greater than even a crown. We are in the midst of such a financial drouth as never overshadowed the republic before. Under the present conditions It Is clear that all mortgaged houses must go. Tens of thousands of homes that are mortgaged, but whose owners are in debt, -must also be swallowed up by the same insatiable maw if the present situation continues for even a few months or at most a few year This Is admitted by all. What remedy is proposedl In Washington we are told by leading men of both parties, that the remedy lies in making money still scarcer, the unconditional repeal of the Sherman act! In Iowa we are informed by very high authority that no national issues need apply for consideration, that we really have no voice or influence whatever over these great and pressing questions, that all our ills in this state lie on the gate-way of the beer keg issue, that if relief shall come at all It must come through the bung of the beer barrel, that If we can only get proper legislation on this, then will the rocks not only pour forth rivers of oil, hut we shall be enabled to wash our weary steps, not in butter, but In beer. Thanking you for your kind invitation to enter the canvass, will say I am not yet in a situation where my work, such as you suggest, would be of value to the cause. Having been a democrat all my life and claiming the above expressed views to be In full accord with true democracy, as Indicated by Its patriotic founders, its platform and all Its sacred traditions, I still prefer to be classed and known as such. If, however, you will kindly send me some of those speeches, such as the one you sent me, it was a good one, I will distribute them to such as in my judgment still adhere to this doctrine, which I conceive to bo the democratic faith. Truly and very respectfully yours, L. R. BOMKU. ConsreBBinan Bryan's Position. Last week the Nebraska state democratic convention endorsed Cleveland's silver policy against Congressman Bryan's vigorous protest. The following dispatch, taken from tho Dubuque Telegraph tells the story: In the democratic convention late last night, after the adoption of the majority report of the committe on resolutions favoring the repeal of the Sherman silver purchase act and the rejection of Congressman Bryan's amendment in favor of the unlimited coinage of silver. Bryan announced his withdrawal from the democratic party." The comment of the Telegraph, which is the ablest democratic paper in Iowa, in line with the Bolter letter, shows how sentiment is running in this state: " It is safe to say that all Nebraska democrats who are not seeking or expecting favors from the national administration, will follow the brilliant congressman's example, and that the ticket just nominated at Lincoln will be overwhelmingly defeated. The case, however, is not, as implied by tho dispatch, one of abandonment of the democratic party by Congressman Bryan It is a case of abandonment by the party itself of a principle which in state convention in 1890 it solemnly and emphatically affirmed and of repudiation by the organization of the currency plank of the national platform. Bryan has not left the party; the party has left him. He remains true to democrat pi-inclples,but the organization with which he has affiliated, more eager for patronage plums than for the welfare of the country, has not only surrendered, but is antagonizing them, __ Mr. Bryan is only one of millions of demo crats, who have concluded that if the party is to be used to bolster Cleveland's pro-Wall street policy and to perpetuate the class legislation against which it has protested in the past, it is time for them to seek other political associations. Cleveland has irretrievably split the organization which elected him. Hereafter the western and south ern wing, which believes in popular government and not In government of, by and for the money power will be found in congressional and national elections, working, shoulder to shoulder with tbe populists," A 9000 __ G,Ja«ma Tells Wby Every former 8bou?4 y«e a Sensible Wogpn Broad-tired, low-wheeled wagons on a farnjar«i necessity.

Here Is the Herald's report: For two days the crack shots of the country have been blazing away at live pigeons at Watson's park, Burnside. It was the greatest live bird shoot of the year, and the winner, Charles Grimm of Clear Lake, Iowa, has no_t only captured the world's fair championship, but has landed $600 in money and a handsome and commemorative trophy to boot. The contest, which opened Wednesday and was concluded yesterday, was at 100 live birds and the entrance fee was $125. The guns were limited to 12 bores, weighing eight pounds, and tho rise was 30 yards for all guns. There were but 12 contestants. Grimm killed96 birds. J. A. R. Elliott of Kansas City was unsteady at the start, missing six out of 10 birds, but he finished strong, killing 92 birds and capturing second money, $360. George Kleinman of" Chicago pressed the Kansas City man close and won third mofley, §240, by grassing 91 birds. The final score follows: Killed. Charles Grimm, Clear Lake,. Iowa 90 J. A. K.

George Work of New York missed 13 out of his first 50; and dropped out of the race. Capt. Money's luck was against him. At tho Algona Range. The rifle team of Company C, Webster City, arrived Thursday for a contest on the Algona range, but the Fort Dodge boys failed to put in an appearance. Those here were Capt.' Aug. Hoffman, Sergt. W.

Witham led at all ranges except 600 yards, Walter Ward having the best score there. The visitors made some good scores and enjoyed themselves. They are very enthusiastic about the range and want the regimental camp and state shoot held at Algona. Capt. Haggard had made excellent arrangements for entertaining the visitors, especially in improving the range. The targets have been re-set further north and the shooting is much better and the range longer. He had also a telephone connection, having secured J. W. Tennant's instruments. The range was in every respect as good as the best, and the visitors declared the best they had ever seen. WE want all our customers to least one package of Friend's Oats. W. F.
