BENNETT MITCHELL says in one of his speeches: "They tell us our defection will elect Gov. Boies. Well, xvhat if Gov. Boies is elected? He has been twice elected and the world has not turned upside down nor swerved from its orbit." It is undoubtedly true that the world has not been upset by Gov. Boies' success, neither will it be. But it is true that the enforcement of the prohibitory law has been seriously hindered by it. and that it will be. And if Mr. Mitchell's supporters can be believed the success of this law is a pretty fair test of how plumb the world is keeping. Nothing better illustrates the senti- montaL, unpractical side of the Mitchell movement than this'attempt to laugh off the effect of Gov. Boies' success. Mr. Mitchell is urging the election of a legislature pledged to prohibition, and no doubt honestly hopes to see one chosen. But if it is and Gov. Boies is elected, as Mr. Mitchell is planning, in two years there will not be enough left of anti-saloon sentiment to make a decent showing.' The present law, unen- forced as it has been for the past two years, will become such a stench in the nostrils of the people before two more years are past, that any efficient regulation of the liquor traffic will be accepted, and anti-saloon sentiment will be totally discredited. There is absolutely no reason for electing an anti- saloon legislature unless an executive is chosen in sympathy with it. There is absolutely no reason for maintaining the present law unless it is to be enforced. Mr. Mitchell and his supporters under the guise of saving prohibition are planning its total ruin, when they make light of the election of Gov. Boies. 16 tftlk On the ealoofi Suestlon, spent his Whole evening on the tariff? Even Gov. Boles' best friends canttot escape the suspicion that he id pettifogging his case when he refuses to talk upon national issues. They know that this election will determine whether Senator Wilson's successor is to be a democrat or a republican, that Iowa's vote will be looked to all over tihe nation as indicating popular sentiment on silver and tariff legislation, that Gov. Boies Is really running lor the senate himself and that two years ngo when the election was purely local he talked almost wholly on these questions. A year ago the democrats pledged themselves to nominate a candidate for the United States senate. Why was it not done? Simply because Gov. Boies thought this WHS not a good year to talk about democratic national policies, and that he could get more votes on what Senator Bolter calls the " beer keg bunghole" issue. This is what he is trying to hold discussion to, against the example of Neal in Ohio, of the democratic speakers in his own state, the open protests of his own followers [ike Bolter, and his own record of two years ago. How he is failing may be judged by the little attention his canvass is attracting as compared with Jackson's. Gov. Boies is losing his hold on Iowa. Jae, nnd Payne of* New Yofft t who &te ftwcmp; the Strong debaters on the te- t »M(«m side. Mr. Dolllver was eloquent t v, -'las argumentative, and his speech t ". tvarnlly applauded by his party associates." Mr. Dolliyer ranks among the best republican orators in congress, and U so recognized over the country. The world's fair last .week ,was attended by over 2,000,000 people. The total attendance is now estimated to reach 22,000,000. The state university has a total attendance of 038 students, 40 more than last year at this time. ^ The stillest spectacle, ever witnessed in the United States was that presented by Voorhees in forcing all-nightsesslons to defeat the silver men in the senate. Under the rules only enough silver men could be compelled to attend to keep talking while 43 anti-silver men must be there for a quorum all the time. Of course the stiver men could outlast their opponents. Voorhees should have moved to change the senate rules or have had sense enough to see that he was beaten. NUTS FOR BOIES TO CftACK, One Fcntni-o of the Pending Campaign that Gov. Boies finds Himself Unable to "Eliminate," Frank Jackson Spears Some Questions at Him that Compel Him to Say Something;. J. P. Dolliver will go on the stump after Oct. 26. * The Council Bluffs Nonpareil don't feel very bad because Cleveland has not been able to coerce congress into driving silver out as a money melal. If a full expression of opinion could be taken the president could count his sympathizers in Iowa in s«all numbers. ^ IP the following item from the Courier were reliable as to facts, a " tinge of sadness" that is not at present perceptible might make itself felt: "The republicans derive much comfort from the alleged bolt of Senator Bolter from the democratic party, but when they stop to consider that the Dubuqne Times and the Muscatine Journal demand the withdrawal of Jackson from the republican . ticket, a tinge of sadness is mingled with their joy." From the Dubuque Times of Oct. 12, the evening preceding the issue of the Courier, we clip the following, in answer to a statement about Jaekson in the democratic Telegraph: " This is the acme of partisan narrowness. It is rotten politics and not in accordance with the truth. Jackson's record from boyhoo_d up gives the lie to the assertion. His neighbors who knew him as a youth, and those who since have known him as a man assert that he is neither sordid nor dishonest. The Telegraph knows that Jackson's career has averaged as good as that of any other man, but to appease its thirst for gore it hesitates not to sacrifice a reputation or two. It is built that way." The Times each day is strongly advocating Jackson's election, so the tinge of sadness from that quarter is not a republican tinge. As we do not see the Muscatine Journal we cannot speak by the card. But if the following which is taken from it by the Marshalltown Republican is a sample of how it is opposing Jackson, we incline to believe that republicans are not feeling very badly in Muscatine: "The repeal of the federal election laws, the repeal of laws for protection of Amei-i- can industries, and the repeal of the state bank tax are all off the same piece. They are democratic, opposed to honest ballot, opposed to honest money, and robbers of every laboring man's home." UNTIL something is said to the con- ;rary it is fair to presume that Gov. Boies' exposition of what the democrats propose in the way of liquor legis- ation represents the sentiments of the party in this county. In his opening speech the governor was very explicit, and the substance of his remarks has been repeated wherever ho has spoken. Tu-o democratic county conventions have been held since, and no dissent expressed. Gov, Boies ssys that what is known as the Schmidt bill is what the democrats will enact. His words at Grundy Center were: " There is no question as to the meaning of the democratic platform. It is unequivocal in its terms and it has already received a practical construction by that party in the bill that was introduced in our last legislature by Senator Schmidt of Davenport and supported by every demot-rat in both branches, while every republican opposed it." Gov. BOIES refused at Sioux City Friday to answer the questions put to him by Mr. Jackson about silver and the tariff. His reason was that the vote in Iowa this fall has no bearing on them. Two years ago Gov. Boies came to Algona to speak and at least two- thirds of his speech was devoted at that time to the effect of the tariff on the prices of farm produce, especially corn, and on the accumulation of wealth in the east and west. How does it happen if this was pertinent to his canvass for governor then, that this year it has no bearing whatever? The vote of Iowa two years ago had np more direct effect in the settlement of these matters of congressional legislation than it will this fall, nor as much, for this year the legislature is to choose a senator. Why then did Gov. Boies go about making all sorts of promises about what tariff changes would effect at that time, and why now does he evade taking a position oi any kind and refuse to answer whether any of bis promises will be fulfilled or predictions verified? If Gov. Boies Is right in bis reason for refusing to tell where he stands as to silver and the tariff, what is to be s of L. T. Neal, the democratic candidate for governor of Ohio, who is making bis canvass on these two issues, ftnd who, in bis opening speech, declared that they were the matters of Sfejief importance to OWo? What also »& t£ fee said P/ e*-Co»ffreajin&R White, agp, &ft<J To make this still more explicit he added: "By the terms of that bill our prohibitory law would have been undisturbed in every city, town, and township in the state, where a majority vote of the people did not first declare for license." In other words the democrats will arrange so that in every city, town, and township a. majority may vote in saloons, a )B500 license, and other minor conditions being provided. That this is really the plan is borne out by the Cedar Rapids Gazette, which answers the argument that county option is unconstitutional by saying that county option is not proposed, but township option. It is to be presumed that this township option is what the democrats want adopted for Kossuth county, and that they will vote for it and urge others to. Under it any country township in the county can have saloons. It is argued that the license could not be paid out of the profits of saloons in country townships. This might be so if license should carry in all the towns. But if any of the larger towns should vote against license it, is certain that adjoining townships would have saloons. It is urged that a vote would be taken only once in three or five years. That would be so much the worse, for a vote once taken could not be changed for the whole period, and no matter how badly the country saloons were managed they could not be disposed of. That in country districts, where there is no police system, saloons would bo utterly lawless we believe everyone believes. That with this system a county like Kossuth would have constant broils, the worst imaginable saloon system, no enforcement of law, and evils compared to which those we now have are as nothing, seems to us very plain. The republican county convention has declared against any form of local option whatever. Mr. Sessions is pledged to oppose local option in any form. If the democrats are represented by Gov. Boies the issue is squarely drawn. If they are not they should lose no time in so stating. Rhet. Clarkson spoke in Des Moines last Friday of Jackson; " He is a typical lo- wan. A growth of the state. A product of its own civilization. His boyhood was one of poverty. He learned in the freemasonry of human labor, sympathy with the hardships of human life, a sympathy which will always keep him close to the people. With his own hands he earned the means to educate himself and to gain for himself a place in the race for distinction and usefulness among his fellow men. The nomination came to him unsought, as in the better days of politics now opening all offices should go to all men." The Sioux City Journal sums it all up, " Gov. Boies dodges." That is all there is of his campaign. A. B. Cummins, who has been pretty well over the state, says the republicans will win. He adds: "I do not look for any considerable losses from the Bennett Mitchell movement. Except in isolated spots Mr. Mitchell's vote will be but little more than that of Bidwell. For instance. I was told when in Indianola, a well-known prohibition stronghold, that a poll showed only six republicans there who are dissatisfied." The McHenry law firm of Des Moines want §1,007 out of the estate of Peter Sutter. They had engaged for that to defend Sutter for killing his wife. Sutler committed suicide before the trial came off, and the claim is that thereby he cheated them out of the job. The terrors attending shuffling off this mortal coil increase each year. The case of Senator Finn against Belvel for libel was settled Monday by the supreme court. Finn wins and Belvel has to pay $500. This is the case that arose out of Belvel's reports of the last legislature. Foraker speaks in Des evening. Moines Saturday Lafe Young stopped off at Algona Saturday on his way from Spirit L;»ke to Jewel Junction. He is making 25 speeches, and has bean having rousing meetings. He reports republican interest aroused and the prospects bright. He is one of Iowa's most popular stumpers and is doing excellent work. An illustration of how President Cleveland is using patronage to influence legislation comes from Cresco. Editor Meade has been a candidate for the postofflce. He has just been informed that his paper has been too outspoken for free silver and that it is out of the question for him to hope for office. Mr. Meado makes the whole thing public. Is it anything of this kind that is keeping some of our near-by contemporaries silent? ALGONA'S NORMAL SCHOOL. for THE following letter was sent to a Dubuque man last week, and published in the Dubuque Times: "IOWA CITY, Oct. 8,1893.—If able to go to the polls on election day I shall vote for Jackson and have no doubt of his election. I regret I cannot take part in the canvass, but my time for such work ia past. Very truly yours, S. J. KIKKWOOD." Nine senators voted to allow women the ballot in the Cherokee strip. Senator Allison was one. ^ Col. Henderson telegraphed to put him down for five speeches a week in Iowa if he had to go on crutches to make them. «Senator Allen of Nebraska beat all records as a talker in the all-night session at Washington.

Boles got the worst of it last week in asking questions. His friends in Scott county prepared a list for Mr. Jackson to respond to on local option, and expected great results. The deputy sheriff made official service of "the following: Hon. F. D. Jackson: For the information of the voters of Scott county the undersigned ask that you answer in your address tonight the following questions: 1. Will you, If elected governor, recommend to the legislature the adoption of a local option law, either with or without state license, and if with state license what will you recommend as a minimum license? 2. If you recommend a local option license, will you recommend it to be by cities, townships and municipalities or otherwise? 3. If the next legislature should pass the democratic local option license bill known as the Schmidt bill, will you or will you not approve the same? 4. 'If the next legislature should refuse to repeal the present prohibitory law, and pass a bill for a state constabulary, will you or will you not approve the same? 6. If you will approve a local option license law, will you recommend and approve a bill allowing cities to impose an additional license? 6. Will you or will you not approve of an amendment to the present prohibitory law alloying trial by jury? The democratic papers of Scott county have agreed to publish your answers. By order of the democratic central committee of Scott county. IGNATIUS SCHMIDT, Secretary. Mr. Jackson after pointing out that none of the bridges proposed had been reached, and that the questions were all about matters that might or might not arise, said: I will say to the governor on the question of temperance legislation that the republican piat- form, on which I stand, proposes to retain prohibition in all communities where it now exists or where it can be enforced. At the same time it guarantees to those localities where the saloon now exists in spite of prohibition, a relief. What this relief shall be it leaves to the legislative districts of the state to determine. Then turning to some questions asked of Gov. Boies, Mr. Jackson put him at once into an awkward place by suggesting that the silver, tariff, and election issues are already on. "There is no question about how they will come up. Why then does Gov. Boies fail to tell where he stands, and why does he not answer the following questions? Will you, Gov. Boies, as the nominal candidate for governor and the real candidate of your party for the United States senate, say: 1. Whether you believe in the repeal of the Sherman law as now proposed in congress? or, 2. Whether you believe in free silver coinage as proposed by another branch of the democratic party? S. Do you believe, as the democratic platform hist year declared, that all protection is a fraud and unconstitutional? and, 4. Will you, if elected to the United States senate, vote for the repeal of the McKinley law? In the game of questioning, Gov. Boies has met his match. Until he explains his attitude on the silver question he has little to say. this opportunity to visit ducational and historical the grandest educational ., -- htbltton the world baa ever seen.

Hinchon: How they talked about the tariff, Just a year or so ago. It was "tariff! tariff! tariff I" clean from Jinkin down to Joe. It was tariff on the hilltop and tariff on the plain. And tariff in the sunshine, and tariff In the rain. An' we rise to know— Seeln' such was BO— What's gone with all the tariff Of a year or so ago? How the candidates for congress, and the candidates for all The good things in the country made the tariff bawl and squall. ' It was tariff on the housetop and tariff on' the stump, And It set the woods aflre, and It made the rabbits jump. An' we rise to know— Seeln' such was so— What's gone with all the tariff That made the bellows blow? It's funny 'bout this tariff—how they've lost It, or forgot; They were rushln' It to congress once, their collars were so hot They could hardly wait to fix It 'till we harvested a crop. Was It such a burnln' question that they had to let It drop? Oh? we'd like to know— Seein' such was so— Where's the tariff, tariff, tariff Of a year or so ago?

Holes Answers. After announcing at Sioux City that he would not answer Mr. Jackson's questions because Iowa's,:, vote would not cut any figure, Gov. Boies saw that ho had made a mistake and at Jefferson he flopped about. This sudden change shows that ho is disturbed by the course the campaign is taking. The essential parts of Gov. Boies' answers are as follows. Speaking of the tariff he said: "To the question, of whether or not I would if a United States senator vote to repeal the McKinley bill, I unhesitatingly answer that I would, and I would further vote to supply its place with a fair and reasonable tariff law for revenue only," On silver he said: "I will for the purpose of putting Mr. Jackson in a posi- sltion whore he will feel under obligations to answer the questions propounded by myself to him, endeavor to answer the same fully and frankly by saying that if I were in a position to vote on the question of the repeal of the purchasing clause of the Sherman bill, I should vote for it because I believe it has done more than all other causes combined to bring about our present financial embarassraent. But in doing so I should abate no part of my most earnest desire to see some plan adopted by which both gold and silver can be equally freely coined as the standard money of the country with safeguards that will at all times maintain the parity of the two metals."

Rodman Journal: We expect our school will soon commence for the winter term with a Miss Wallace of Al- gonn as instructor. She comes with a good recommendation, which is needed in our school.

S Pinafore, was given at the opera house last evening by the Grace Wilson Opera company, assisted by local talent. It was a first-class enter- tainmentand considered one of the best ever given in Garner. The Wilson family are fine singers and splendid actors. Speaking of Hon. E. G. Morgan the Fort Dodge Messenger gives the following items of interest: It was on the 29th day of April, 1855, that Mr. Morgan first set foot in Fort Dodge. Here he entered the office of Gen. VanAntwerp, who was at that time receiver of public moneys at Fort Dodge. Mr. Morgan built the first brick building erected in Fort Dodge, in the rear of what is now the Globe drug store. Here he kept bachelor's hall during the winter and the little brick building soon became the social headquarters of the city. In the fall of 1857 he was elected treasurer and recorder of Webster county, which office he held for two terms. With Chas. B. Richards in 1862 he built the flouring mill that has since passed into history as the Arnold mill. He was one_ of the first building committee of the insane hospital at Independence and selected the site in 1868. He remained on the board until the building was completed. At the same time lie was president of the board of trustees and continued on the board until 1886. Mr. Morgan was one of the organizers of the First National bank, becoming its first cashier in 1866 and afterwards being elected president. He remained in the banking business until 1877, when he was appointed deputy state treasurer by Hon. Geo. W. Bemis of Independence, Iowa, then state treasurer. I'ubJlc Notice Extraordinary. We wish to announce that from this date we will meet all comers at our office for the purpose of supplying them with money in any amount, from five dollars to ten thousand, on any kind of security from a boot-jack, race horse, town residence, or a good farm. SKINNER BROS. Over State Bank, Algona. The liveliest contest in Judge Thorn* as' term of court Was over giving a pep- mit to sell liquor to A. R. Darr of Lu- Verne. Mr. Darr is the newly appointed postmaster, whose success stirred un such a row. He bought I. P. Harrison's drug store and although Mr. Harrison had not handled liquor, he made up his mind that that was an important adjunct to the drug business and at once asked a permit of the cour<;. A protest was circulated andwassigned by 126 of the leading citizens. The protest reads: We, the undersigned, citizens of LuVerne and vicinity, respectfully petition your honor not to grant the application of Mr. A. R Darr of LuVerne for the sale of intoxicaV ing liquors in the town of LuVerne. Wo emphasize our former declaration as follows ; The drug business was formerly conducted by Mr. Harrison without the sale of liquor and wo believe there is now no demand for intoxicating liquors as a medicine aside from what our physicians are authorized to supply. We do not believe A. R. Darr to be a proper person to keep and sell intoxicating liquors in our town. The matter came up Thursday. Drs. Lacy and Fraser testified to the convenience of having a permit in Lu- Verne in their_practice, and a half dozen who had signed the remonstrance testified that they had nothing personal against Mr. Darr. But they and all the witnesses against the permit agreed that there wtis no demand for the sale of liquor. Judge Thomas refused the permit and taxed the costs to Darr. They amount to $65. One of Life's Minor Tragedies. When the case of G. C. Bennett, brought up for horse stealing, was reached, a letter from Bennett 'smother was called to Judge Thomas' attention. It was as follows: CALDWELL, Kan., Oct. 8, 1893.— Judge of Circuit Court— Dear Sir : I write to you in behalf of my only son, who is in Jail there in Algona. He may not be much to anyone else, but he is my only boy living and my heart is nearly broke over his wrong doing. Still I can't help asking you to be as easy as you can on him. It is his first offense and I would gladly pay him out if I could but I have nothing that I can give but his mother's prayers and tears. If they would save him I would gladly buy him off, but as it is I will only beg of you to he as easy as you can on him. I lost my other boy just two weeks ago and this one is my all. If you are a parent you know how hard it is to bear both this and death at one time. Leaving this to your best judgment, I remain yours truly, S. R. BENNETT. Judge Thomas spoke feelingly and strongly in sentencing Bennett, and gave him one year. Bennett, it will be remembered, stole a pony in Algona when he was working on the ditches for water mains. He was arrested, but escaped with Dixson. He was caught again in Nebraska and has been in jail at Mason City since. Citizens Made.
