The.'Storm iLake Tribune discusses the senatorial contest and says: "The Algona itlPPEB DES MOINES cites the case of Senator Wilson against the selection of an elderly gentleman for United States senator. ,Mr. Wilson has been unfortunate itt'health, but if it will examine his record in both houses of congress it will find that few names have been moro con- spicious or Important in the legislation of this country than: his. He has not made a specialty of-one department of legislation as Senator .Allison has, thereby gaininer more prominence, but on general legislation he has been.a broad and gifted representative. So far as Senator Wilson's record is concerned there is no occasion for discussion. .In »his earlier years in con- gress'he.gave. promise of becoming one of the prominent men of the nation. If his infirmities have prevented him from reaching the high station Senator Allison has it has it has been his misfortune and:not his fault. But noting • the contrast between the records of Senators Allison and Wilson during the past.six years, but one conclusion can be drawn and that is that bodily vigor, .youth, and experience are all requisite to a, successful senatorial career. Senator Allison has reached 'his present prominence because of excellent native abilities, but not more excellent than many men have had who have taken very uneventful parts in the senate. He is where he is because he was sent to the senate as a .young man and with the v.igor of a young man was able to bear the hard work his colleagues were willing to shoulder'on him. There are two views to be taken of the:6enatorship. <0ne is that it should be given as a reward for long service as a sort of farewell honor. The other is that the state should select a senator as it 'Would a lawyer purely with a view to the service he can render in the future. The.extremes of both views are faulty. In the one case the senate would become an asylum for outworn men, and in the other the failure to consider •past services would discourage many from spending their best years in pub. lie life. But of these two views it is evident tfaat the latter must, so long as the senate is a body exerting an s active Influence .upon the wellfare and prosperity of the people, always receive prior consideration. The first question is one of future service. The rewards and honors must be secondary. In the present contest Gov.'Gear will be 70 years.ef age when he takes his seat if elected. He is Senator Allison's senior by several years. It may well be questioned whether in a new field where by tradition new members do not gain quick recognition, he would ever exert the influence he now does in the house. It is certain that be .could • not reach any such position as Senator , Allison holds. And it is equally certain that Iowa has several young men, who give as great promise as Senator Allison did when he was chosen. 'S. M. Clark says that not to select Gov. Gear would be as great a mistake as it would have been for the liberals to have deposed Gladstone 20 years ago. If Gov. Gear held any such relative position in ability as Gladstone does or was to continue work in his accustomed place as Gladstone has the comparison would be just. But what would even Gladstone amount to in the house of lords? Gov. Gear with all his merits does not tower above other public men in Iowa, much younger and much more vigorous, and transferred to a new field of labor would have no advantage whatever, for others could easily make up in activity and hard work what he might be ahead in experience. Massachusetts met this same situation and sent Henry Cabot Lodge to the senate, a young man. Mr. Lodge will be the Senator Allison or Sherman of the future, while, just as now, states which choose men who barely get acquainted When compelled to retire, will cut no real figure in determining national policies. Is any such right why should the state not exercise it in a state license law? Another absurdity in this as in all local option bills is the long string of saloon regulations to be enacted by the legislature. Why if the county is to be the unit of government on t&esalooa question should it not be left to the county to say on what terms it will have saloons? The tail ought to go with the hide. The state legislature cannot enact regulations that will be a bit more satisfactory to all the counties of the state than the present law is, and such' a string of them as Mr. Smith proposes would not be enforced in pu- buque or Council Bluffs one whit better. What greater respect would be shown in Dubuque to the court proceedings, bonds, $1,000 license fees, and a dozen other restrictions proposed by Mr. Smith than is shown to the prohibitory law? Mr. Smith's law would be evaded and nullified exactly as much as prohibition in the saloon cities, while it would create untold confusion and disturbance everywhere else. that the day was' coming when the God fearing people of this country will demand that railway employes be given a rest on the Sabbath day. The tipper Des Moines Editorial association meets at Carroll Jan. 25, and will have the Eleventh district association as guests. Carroll Is a booming city, Its editors arc the best, and a great meeting is in store. A FULL LEGISLATIVE REPORT. THE UPPER DES MOINES has made arrangements by which it will furnish its readers with full reports of the coming legislative session written by Lafe Young of tho Daily Capital. Mr. Young is a very entertaining writer and is as well acquainted with the political history of Iowa as any man in it,; and his report of what occurs at Dos Moines this winter will be of great interest. The coming session promises to be the most important held in late years. Everybody will want an inside view of the situation, and THE UPPER DES MOINES will be the only paper in the county having Mr. Young's letters. Republicans, democrats, populists, and prohibitionists alike will enjoy his spicy review of each week's d§velop- ments. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Fort Dodge Times: J. J. Ryan's new residence in Plumb's addition is enclosed. Four prisoners escaped from the O'Brien county jail last week. They have our kind of a jail. Miss Addie Moore, formerly of Feuton, was married last week at Ruthven to Joseph Jones. They will live at Ruthven. Spencer News: The K. of P. society will hold a social this evening at Castle hall. An orchestra from Algona is expected to furnish music. Miss Elsie Lincoln of Fort Dodge has been offered a position with the Iowa State band. The band plays at the California fair, going over in January. Emmetsburg Democrat: J. G. Smith of Algona is a candidate for fish commissioner. He should get it. He has studied the subject. Mr. Griggs has made a splendid record for himself. West Bend Journal: C. G. Wright of this place has been called to the pastorate of tho Baptist church at Bradgate, in connection with the Baptist societies at Havelock and Pocahontas Center. He will preach at Bradgate morning and evening each alternate Sabbath. He and his wife were down to Bradgate Saturday and looked up res- Att, ARE flOOD BEAD1N&.

This is the essential fact to consider when any radical change which threatens an overturn of existing conditions is proposed. The Wilson tariff bill may prove good or bad. There is every reason to believe that its effects will be permanently injurious to American interests. But even if the hopes of the administration should be fullfllled ten years will not make the country good. Corning at this time of general depression, threatening interests which employ vast armies of men, making existing uncertainties more uncertain, causing public jubilation in foreign countries competing with us, insuring a long continued political contest, and holding out only problematical and speculative assurances, it is the most unfortunate measure that has been proposed since the war. idence property week. and will move next Senator Funk is again sole owner of the Beacon.

He better grease himself to endure disappointment. Gov. Jackson will scarcely entertain such a •proposition. The new executive is la.-gely in the'hands of his friends, and his friends are in favor of abolishing the democratic party as far as they can. One of these friends is the editor of tho Ottumwa Courier, who discovered Jackson. The man who found the hero of calamity in Iowa, is as hungry as a she crocodile, who hasn't fed since two days before she laid 4,000 eggs with which to people tho hot sands and the lusty bulrushes. IT tliore is nobody else to take the.fish cornrnisbionership, the aforesaid editor will insist on being given the fish cans, eggs aud milt of the office," The railroad was completed to Spearfish, S. D., Saturday, the last spike being driven by the ladies of the city. J. H, Warren welcomed the Milwaukee to Algona and is there to welcome that. It was a great day for Spearfish. Emmetsburg Democrat: In the appointment of L. C. Smith of Kossuth as one of his deputies, J. C. Kelley showed the best of judgment. Mr. Smith is a splendid young man and a most deserving'.democrat. He will fill the position punctually and hdhorably Peter Knudson has been relieved of his section o_n the Milwaukee road. Jonas Tomlinson takes his place. The latter has been in Algona most of the summer. Fort Dodge Messenger: Congressman J. P. Dolliver, accompanied by his brother Victor and his sister Gay, left Tuesday night for the east. Their father has already preceded them. They all stop at Chicago to eat Thanksgiving dinner with Rev. R. H. Dolliver before going to Washington for the winter. V. B. Dolliver has planned to put in his time for the next year or two completing his law education at the Columbia law school. Fort Dodge Messenger: The world's fair exhibit of the Upper Des Moines Editorial association has been presented to the Iowa historical department. It consists of a chart, made of matting, on which are affixed photographs of the title pages of the papers in the Upper Des Moinea Editorial association. They each have a photograph of the editor, blended with that of the paper. The feature is a valuable addition to the collection, not so much as a matter of history as of friendly interest. The Intelligencer reporting the big opera house opening last week says: Tho comedy, "By Wits Outwitted," was a surprise to most people, so crisp was the dialogue and so excellent the acting.

CONSULTATION FREE. A SAMPLE LOCAL Ol'TJOX LAW. We publish this week an outline of a local option law prepared by Spencer Smith, late state rail way commissioner. Mr. Smith is an able lawyer and has evidently given much thought to this bill. In some respects it provides as good a law as any local option law could be and it will undoubtedly be seriously considered by the legislature. But its defects are glaring, and as a whole it illustrates bow impossible it is to make a good law on a wrong prlncl- plf. It provides for county option and arrives at a result as far removed from any real local option as is possible', for $t permits saloons in any (own or township in i county voting for license no Hotter whether such, town or township yoted for license or not. This inconsistency Alone destroys the measure, for by what right should a county be al- Jpwed to establish, a_ compulsory saloon !>IW The State Register points out the weakness of the Spencer Smith local option bill in permitting saloons in towns and townships which vote against them. But it intimates that a law permitting saloons in townships which vote for them would be unobjectionable. Does the Register believe that any law which permits saloons outside of municipal corporations and which will insure such, saloons in counties having prohibition towns will be satisfactory} Is it willing to sanction such a law in any event whatever? Van Alen has declined the Italian mission on account of public comment over his appointment. His letter will elevate him considerably In public esteem. * Gco. D. Perkins will cut a figure in the senatorial race. Some think it lies between Gear and Cummins, some predict a big showing for Col. Hepburn, but a well posted Perkins supporter says It is between Gear and Perkins. Perkins has a solid endorsement in the Eleventh district. ent. He was introduced and made a short address, thanking the audience for this generous reception of his play, and felicitating them upon the magnificent "Temple of the Muses," which had been given the city by Mr. Hildreth. The new oporu house is a fine building. Eagle Groyo Gazette: John R. Schaeffer has sold tho Burt Monitor, that mis established about a year ago, to H. B. Hallock, who has been in the Gazette office several months past. Mr. Hallock is well known in Burt, having formerly lived there, and understands the community where he has cast his lot as his first business venture.- He takes possession of tho office Dee.l, and has the qualifications necessary to make a good editor. The Gazette has sent several editors out since its establishment in Eagle Grove. S. C. Higbee went from this office to Renvvick and established the Times; H. O. Doolittle left this office to become owner of the Elmore (Minn.) Eye; nowTI. B. Hallock becomes owner and proprietor of the Burt Monitor—all doing well and making able editors. Who comes next? A HAPPY MABBIAGE, Dr. A. L. lUst mid Miss Mnry Smitli Knter tho Matrimonial Hnnks-Au- otlier Marriage. Last Satuday evening at 7 o'clock at the homo of Capt. and Mrs. L. M. B. Smith, their daughter Mary and Alf. L. Rist wore united in marriage by Rev. Davidson. A few friends and relatives were present to congratulate them and to escort them to their newly fitted home, where they began housekeeping at once. The ceremony was simple but appropriate aud the good wishes for a happy future were many and sincere. The bride is one of Algo- Tlio Atlantic Monthly. The Atlantic for 1894 will contain among other attractions "Philip and his Wife," a serial story, by Margaret Deland. This is undoubtedly the most important work of the author of " John Ward, Preacher," involving some of the leading problems in modern social life, studied very thoroughly and treated with admirable skill and grace.

Henry Switzer, Better Known as "Dutch Henry," Is About Done •with Life's Troubles. In the spring of 1887 the -trustees of Cresco township found Henry Switzer frozen to the floor in his cabin, his cattle dead, and his old horse' likewise. and he with an old rusty revolver threatening to shoot anyone who came near. He was brought to town, cleaned and dressed, and finally taken to the poor farm, where he has since been. During the past few weeks he has begun to fail and now has only a short time to live. Dr. Keneflck says his heart is affected and a week or two at the outside will end his career. He is about 66 years old and his career in Kossuth will always make him an object of interest. Switzer was one of the pioneer CTu er ? of the countv i coming in 1856. He had plenty of money, was a wagon maker by trade, and took what is known as the Abe Hill farm in Plum Creek. In the winter of 1857 he got caught in a terrible storm near where the R. J. Hunt farm is while on his way .to Au- ust Zahlten's. Becoming exhausted e crawled into a snow bank, leaving his feet sticking out. They were badly frozen and Henry devised a plan for thawing them out which he followed against all advice and threats after he had crawled to shelter. He stuck both into hot water and they cracked like pistols. He lived a year without medical attendance and his friends then had to use persuasion to get him to have Dr. Cogley, the original settler where I. Frye lives, fix him up. One leg was left a mere stump. Henry sold the Hill farm, bought in Cresco, became morose, and was seen less and less until his old gray horse aud uncouth outfit were quite a curiosity when he drove to town. He had been living for some time on the raw flesh of the animals that had died for want of water when Romance. With the Issue for November, Romance was enlarged to 192 pages. Each issue contains from 15 to SO complete stories. In January will appear a special New Year's number. During 1804 the magazine will print a series illustrating the different varieties of the short story. Thus a group of three tales illustrating the society story will appear in February; a group of three illustrating the humorous story in March; a group of adventure stories in April; of realistic stories in May; of romantic stories in June; of sea stories in July; of mystery stories in August; and so on.

A notable contribution to -his number is tho first part of Mark Twain's new dramatic novel, " Pudd'nhead Wilson," which is to run in the Century for six or seven months. The author here is once more on his familiar ground—the Mississippi river region—and among characters known to his boyhood. One of the curiosities is a portrait of Napoleon, after a sketch made b.v tho novelists Capt. Marryat on board the Bellerophon. The original was presented by the distinguished actor Henry Irving to the army mess at West Point. found and taken to the poor farm. _Switzer and his career belong to the pioneer epoch and it is hard to realize now that such a character or life has been possible in Kossuth.
