Senator Funk sums up the situation OH liquor legislation when he says that the most unpopular thing the legislature can do is to adjourn without modifying the present law, and next td that the most unpopular thing will be any change it can make. No one can even guess as to the form legislation is going to take. Everybody concedes that prohibition must bo modified. But very few are willing to say what they will agree to in the way of iv modification. It may he that a mulct bill like Senator Harsh's will bo adopted, it may bo'{hat municipal option will be the outcome, and it is barely 'possible that county option at one extreme or amulet tax, which leaves the present law in full force, at the other will pass. But no sooner is any plan suggested than it is swamped with valid objections. The situation shows how much easier it is for a party to say that the bear's tail must bo dropped than it is to drop it. The whole cry is to change the present law, as though tho mere matter of change in itself would accomplish anything. The party failed 12 years ago with a better local option law in operation than it will got this winter, and it will fail again and that speedily with the mulct evasion or any form of local option now proposed. everybody admits would make ft homesick Chinaman rejoice to see. MiV Huhgerford slept on It over night and the next day in business session delivered an important message from the senator on a matter which, as it turns out, was not even referred to in the letter. We have always doubted the story that Greeley wrote to a lady declining a poem on spring, and that she thought it was a proposal of marriage and accepted him. But it may have happened. An item of news circulating at the capitol is the possible candidacy of Representative Sessions for Gib Fray's place—clerk of the supreme court. F. R. Conaway brings him out in a complimentary editorial and there is considerable discussion of his chances. He has not decided on being a candidate, but the prospect is inviting and his encouragement flattering. He has introduced two bills on insurance which are attracting attention, and receives many compliments on his service thus far as a legislator. He is located at the Savory, where he welcomes his constituents in his usually genial manner. Ho has one of the best seats in the house and attends faithfully to his committee meetings and other duties. The good roads question is likely to cut some figure before the session closes, and several bills are in incorporating needed reforms. All of them provide for the collection of part at least of the township tax in cash and for the expenditure of the money by the supervisors in permanent improvements. Friday afternoon the house committee was addressed by Judge Thayer of Clinton, who is a pioneer advocate of road reform, and Thos. F. Cooke, who represents the Iowa league. Mr. Cooke urged the plan proposed at the Kossuth grange meeting last May, of having from two to three mills of the present tax collected in cash, and leaving the law otherwise as it is, This is a moderate reform and would allow a test to be made of the cash system. The chairman of the Butler county board of supervisors was also present and made some important statements. He has been on tho board nine years, and in his county the board has collected the one mill tho present law allows and he said that with that one mill tho board had done very much more permanent work than tho townships had with the four mills, and his county favors collecting the whole tax In cash and putting all road work under one management for the county. The normal school question is cutting but little figure at this session. A bill for seven has been reported favorably by one committee, but will not pass. No new institutions will be provided for unless it is an ( insane asylum, Le- Mars is making a strong fight for that and ought to win. A new asylum is needed and there is not a city in the northwest where better facilities could bo afforded. E. D. Chassel, who is one of the rising younger men in Iowa politics, is making a vigorous canvass in the house and Senator Dent is using his influence in the senate. Senator Funk won a pleasant victory in the appropriations committee Friday when his bill for a monument in memory of the Spirit Luke massacre was favorably reported without a dissenting vote. It provides for $5,000, and will go to tho front on the calendar and will undoubtedly be passed. Senator Funk has enjoyed a high scat in the senatorial synagogue this winter, but bears his honors modestly and is as level headed as over in his judgment on public matters. It is generally admitted now that he is one of the poorest penmen in the senate and one of the .most influential and safest members of that distinguished body. Already his name is coupled with tho governorship and tho Eleventh district congressional succession. Speaking of penmanship tho hist in a curious comedy of errors connected with the Carroll editorial mooting WHS disclosed by Senator Funk, and it proves that if tho Upper DCS Moinun fraternity propoao to do bin-moss sin Official type writer must bo engtigod. The beginning of tho blunders dates with a letter done in the finest Spon- cerian style by THE UPPER DBS MOINES ficribe. ' Ho wrote to tho secretary that Mr, Dolliver had been prepared for the Bummer meeting and might bo .willing to come to Carroll to talk to us. After Studying the copy carefully Miss Train flpnjoiuded that Mr. Dolliver had been secured for the Carroll meeting and so announced. Once he was advertised fiikjB main thing was to get Mr. Dolliver • $0 come, but in response to urgent he wrote that he could no attend. Senator Funk re the letter containing the ar fUPgement of marks with which ou ' congressman designates hi Lawrence Hutton once wrote to England that Maud S. and Robt. G. Ingersoll were the great exceptional features of the day in America. Maud S. has been several times outclassed since then, but Ingersoll still holds his record. He lectured Saturday evening to a packed audience in the grand opera house on Shakespeare. It was a two hours word painting, as complete a vindication of the orthodox belief in Shakespeare as can be made. He read from manuscript, but so adroitly that it was hot noticed. His voice is clear but not musical nor round and full. His gestures are not particularly graceful. His power seems to be in his poetic imagery, in his polished and perfected sentences and periods. If he has the genius to thrill an audience and carry it away with eloquence he did not display it., and was rather the platform lecturer than orator. But in his lino he is unapproachable. His lecture showed elaborate study and preparation. It was complete, and every sentence was a finished work of art. '•them danged hobos" who presumed to oppose his dictation. Mrs. H. F. Watson was at Emmetsburg a few days the first of the week the guest of T. L. Grose and wife. Wesley'Reporter: Yesterday G. A. Frink bought from Chas. Brewster 67 turkeys which averaged 25 pounds each, for which he received $97.80. Emmetsburg Reporter: The Rolfe Reveille speaks favorably of W. B. Quarton of Algona for tho judgeship, in case Judge Carr is definitely out of the field. A. N. Boeie, who was for many years shorthand reporter in court at Algona, and has since boon in the practice at Webster City is talked of for district judge this fall. Emmetsburg Conservative: I-I. J. Wilson is spending a good deal of his time in Algona, straightening up affairs caused by the burning of the mill. Mrs. Wilson is visiting in Mississippi. Emmetsburg Democrat: Henry Geoi'ge, a former conductor on the Milwaukee road, died at Los Angeles, California, a few days ago. Ho was quite a popular conductor and was quite well known by many Emmetsburg people. Burt Monitor: Bro. Starr of the Republican will soon retire from the postofflce. He has had a fat " take" in the postoflSce deal, and now Bro. Hinchon is to have the $1,800 plum. In the mean time THE UPPER DBS MOINES has been steadily "sawing wood," improving its paper and plant, and will experience no inconvenience thatcomes from changing hands. Mr. Funk has introduced a bill in the Iowa senate asking for the appropriation of §5,000 for the purpose of interring properly the remains of those who lost their lives in the Spirit Lake massacre and for the erection of a suitable monument. The entire matter is to be left to a committee consisting of C. C. Carpenter, John F. Duncombe, R. A. Smith, Chas. Aldrich, and Abbie Gardner Sharp. Des Moines Capital: The future attorney general is coming in for some attention. Ex-Speaker Mitchell is supposed to be a candidate. A. C. Parker of Spencer will be announced by the local papers of his district in a few days. He is being pushed by Cornwall.of Clay, and Cornwall is a pusher. Milton Remley, recent el3ctor- at-large, and one of Iowa's finest men and best lawyers, is also a candidate. It promises to be a lively fight. MAKEftS OF A Manufacturing Town which Was Started and Practically Made by the Efforts of One Man, The Peculiar Business Methods of Alfred Dolge—What He Said to His Workmen. John Jenswold, Col. Harrison's partner at Emmetsburg and an old student in Algona college, was the populist and democratic candidate for mayor up at Duluth, but got beaten. Col. Tom did better down at Topeka. The following dispatch tells the story: Ray T. Lewis, republican, was elec ted mayor of Duluth today by a majority of 2,880 in a total vote of about 10,000. The republicans elected sixteen aldermen, which is a clean sweep. John Jenswold, nominated by the democrats and populists, did not carry a single ward. The fight was made a party one with the position of Maj. Baldwin on the tariff question as an issue. Tho present city administration is democratic. In Herkimer county, New York, there was twenty years ago a little village where tho wagon road crosses East Canada Creek, known as Broek- ett's Bridge, that has since become a littlecity of national reputation. There is no more romantic scenery anywhere than this creek valley affords as it goes winding down to the Mohawk neat- Little Falls, and more luscious blackberries are nowhere in greater abundance than on the hills which rise away from it. But it is not the scenery, nor the blackberries, nor the old fashioned covered wooden bridge, that have caused Brockett's little sequestered village to spring into fame and importance. It was the visit of Alfred Dolge, a German felt maker, to view the water power, and his decision to put a factory there that caused the transformation. He wont there in 1874 to make a beginning. Today his felt is known 'all over tho world and no single manufacturing town ships to a wider market than Dolgeville. The felt boots bought at every store in Kossuth county were mado at this creek crossing, and from its factories goes the piano felt that is used in every great piano factory in the world. The first premiums were won at the Vienna, and Paris expositions, and ten premiums went to Dolgeville from the Chicago fair last year. But it is not merely the development of this great manufacturing enterprise that has made Dolgevillo a noted little city. While accomplishing this Mr. Dolge has developed some views of his Carl Snyder, who wrote such a readable account of the Ferris whool for the Review of Reviews, has an article on what he calls " Our New National Wonderland" in tho February number. It is a description of scenes in Washington, and is one of tho host that has yet been written. Mr. Snydor is on tho editorial staff of tho Review and is winning the success his work In Iowa gave promise of. He has gone to the front rank us a Journalist. OOL. SESSIONS FOB OLEKK. F. 11. Conn-way In the Brooklyn Chronicle Kumcs S, S. Sessions to Succeed Gib. Pray. There will bo many candidates for the several positions to be filled by the next republican state convention. There is said to be an oven nine in the race for attorney general, and Col. S. S. Sessions of Algomi hopes to have the seven in the field for clerk of tho supremo court raised to nine before the day of the convention. On the morning of that eventful day he proposes to own in the management of his employ ees, which have attracted attention, and the annual reunions at which he has spoken to his men and explained to them his business for the year, have been watched by all students of social economy. He has adopted an insurance system in his factory and all men who work faithfully a certain number of years get a paid up life insurance policy in a good company. He has a pension account for those not eligible to life insurance, and a profit sharing. He h_as never had a strike or a serious difference with his employees. Saturday, Jan. 27, the 25th annual reunion at Dolgeville, occurred. Mr. Dolge instead of the usual banquet gave his check for $500 to relieve the needs of the poor, and instead of his usual congratulations over the work of the year spent his hour in discussing the great issue of protection and free trade as it affects the factory and labor. He was able to show that 15 new life insurance policies had been issued making a total of $167,000 on which the company is paying premiums, and a total of $211,685.31 thus far distributed in slmrings of one kind and another, but ho could point to no divided profits for 1893. Tho Little Falls Courier and Journal gives a full report of this 25th annual reunion. Over 500 employees listened to Mr. Dolgo's address. Taken in connection with the success ho has won, tho credit he has brought to this country as the leader in his lino, and Senator Funk has had his bill passed in tho senate restraining hunters from trespassing on farm lands without first getting consent of owners. We have it on unquestioned authority that either $T50 or $1000 was given by tho Pomeroy relief committee to one of its members, a Pomoroy banker, as pay for his services as custodian of the funds. In oilier words, a bunk drew pay for holding money on deposit during the past summer. If this is not a scandal, will Senator Mack or Miiyor Granger or some of tho others say why? Iowa was full of banks that v.'ouW have jmia big interest for that deposit. The Iowa State band will come back from California. An objection was raised to having an Iowa band, and local talent will bo employed. paper, and after poring notified the committee that Mr had accepted, and also wrote Mr. DolUver thanking him for so This brought a telegram, in toe operator's chirog- »«« pl»i» sod not to be misun But to cap toe climax Sen- ww notable to attend tfce hj« regrets fe> J, a KWPfl The State Uogisk'r published u list of salary gutters in Des Moines mid Polk county Just Sunday which shows that in round numbers the public expense roaches u half million dollars iv year iu the two.

And so bonds can be forced until all the eastern moneyed men have what they want as an Investment. have tho attorney generals and tho su- premo court clerks meet on the diamond and settle tho question, tho men making tho host records to carry off tho honors and bo conceded the nominees. Wo understand tho other candidates for supremo court object to this method of settling the matter. Col. Sessions is known for his great ability as a base ball player. Since he has settled down to manage a very large law practice ho has quit his ball playing except to go out occasionally and worry some of the professionals. He comes from a family of politicians. Two of his relatives are in congress. One of his uncles was speaker of tho New York house of representatives. Another was a member of the senate, and was president pro torn during tho Conkling-Platt difficulty. Being a Gar- fiold man, ho arranged tho details for defeating those two senators after they had resigned and had asked a vindication at tbo hands of the New York assembly. Col. Sessions' father was a well-known man in northwestern Iowa, and his best energies were devoted to building up Algoiui. Col. Sessions was a member of tho stato agricultural society for several yours, and was nominated and elected to tho legislature in November. He has taken a high rank, is methodical, careful, and is making a splendid roeord. Ho will make a strong candidate before tho next stato convention for clerk of the supreme court because of his worth as a republican. Ho has friends in all parts of Iowa who will devote their time to his candidacy. IN TSIS Hartley has a man named Pry bread. His digestion ought to be good. Frank Pavey, pur old time Esther* vale editor, is candidate for state printer out in Oregon. The Free Press reports that Robert Ruthven has the contract for putting up 600 oare of ice at Ruthven, Carroll Herald: J. W. Hinohon of Courier jjas been appointed Euimotsburg Postofllce Scandal. The Reporter says: Mr. Branagan is seeking to work up sympathy for himself in the postcffice matter by saying that the republicans are abusing him. This is not true. He also says that the charges made against him are exaggerated—not untrue as a whole, simply "exaggerated." The charges were made by a democrat who has been in Mr. Branagan's confidence and who has been working with and for him, and the probabilities are that instead of being exaggerated they suppress, lots that might be told. As near as can be estimated, Mr. Branagan's local support stands at about one to three when compared with the support of bis competitor. There are ugly rumors in the air of another sale ana surprise for some of his frjlende tf the appointment his broad and philanthropic ideas as to labor, his speech is one of the most noteworthy commentaries on free trade theories that has been made this year. We publish a few paragraphs. .Mr. Dolgo's Address. On arising to speak Mr. Dolge was given a rousing cheer. He said: I welcome you to our twenty-fifth reunion. For years we have all looked forward to this reunion, as one to be specially celebrated. Some of you had even planned an exhibition of the goods wo manufacture in order to show the progress wo haye made during this quarter of a century. Programmes had been sketched for festivities which were to outshine anything Dolgevillo had ever seen. * This celebration was to have been an object lesson, showing what labor and capital can accomplish when under a government whoso economic policy aims continually to increase the prosperity of the masses, unmolested by partisan politics. Tho party now in power, truo to its old-tiino hatred of industry and thrift, has inaugurated a policy so antagonistic to tho welfare of both wage-earners and manufacturers that conditions have boon created which impel mo not to spend any money this year for festivities, or oven for our customary dinner. Therefore I invited you to sit with me round these empty tables and ask you to accept my chock for §500 with the suggestion that you entrust it to a committee of three from your number who shall use it to assist such of cm- co-workers as may need aid during 1 tho winter. THOSE 1'KOSPEHOL'S VEAKS. In reviewing our business for tho years 1891 and 1892, I was abU: to re- orders: for the first time in twenty-five yea,rs I stand before you to state what you all know, that in spite of our earnest efforts, in spite of our many advantages, in spite of our acknowledged position as leaders in our lines of business, in spite Of all this and more, we have not made any progress during 1893. TTIK DAHKEST PAGE. The first year of the "Reform Era" is tho darkest page in the records of of our business, but not by any fault of ours. We have done our duly and more, by almost Herculean efforts we managed to keep our factories running until December 15th, while thousands of factories were forced to shut down entirely or. partially as soon as the secretary of tho treasury fired his bomb into the business community last June, threatening to pay government obligations in silver. This bomb shattered the entire commercial' structure; confidence was destroyed, values decreased, and our industries received such a staggering blow that the repeal of the silver bill, which the free traders claimed would set the wheels of industry going, did not make any impression upon the situation. THEN AND sow. When we came to Dolgeville in 1874 the population was about 100, and the total wealth according to the assessment roll a little over $80,000. Today wo have 2,000 inhabitants, and the assessment roll shows taxable property to the amount of $1,200,000. Industry created this wealth and every person in Dolgeville has been benefitte'd. You find the same at Little Falls, and up and down the Mohawk river wherever a factory chimney is smoking. Even in the southern status manufacture is lifting the people from tho state of semi-barbarism to that of education and culture. Destroy industry and you destroy culture; compel those whom Mr. Cleveland chooses to call "the plain people" to give up their acquired habits of home comfort and culture and you pave the road to depravity. Throw the factory hands back to shoveling dirt, and they will become as coarse as the uneducated Italians. THE AVERAGE OF WAGES TJNDEU I'ltOTECTION AND FJiEB TliAUB. Our statistics show that during the year 1886 when the effects of the low tariff of 1883 were felt to the full extent, the wages in our felt factory averaged $303, per capita. In 1891, after the enactment of the McKinley bill, we paid $454 per capita, while in 1893 the average dropped again to $401. This includes men, boys, women and girls. THEY VOTED FOB IT. It has boon said that the workingmen voted for the change, that they are responsible for it and must accept the consequences. The statement is true, the workingmen voted for it; but you are not responsible for it, and it is cruel to say that the workmen deserve the unspeakable misery which this change has brought upon them and the whole country. LOWEK WAGES A CEUTAINTV. But why must or should manufacturers and wage earners bo satisfied with a reduced income? "For the benefit of the many" your hypocritical free trader answers. Who are the "many?" You have an illustration right here in Dolgeville. During 1893 wo paid out fully 25 per cent, less for wages than we paid in 1892, although the rate of wages has not been reduced, excepting those who recelyed the larger salaries. Who were tho losers? The wage earners only? Certainly not! tunity offers, the people of the United States will demonstrate that they mean to proceed in their onward march to higher purposes, higher culture, aim greater freedom in spite of the men. who now, as autocratic rulers, attempt to turn backward the wheel of progress* THE NOBTH END BRAGS, By Means of Watching Three Hunts They Find Out How to Do It-Two Wolves Shot. The meed of praise which goes to the successful belongs to Gen. Marsh Stephens and his wolf hunters. This is awarded by tho Elmore Eye in a lavish manner, and'we can add nothing to its glowing picture of the last and most successful hunt: "The repeated failures of the many attempts to surround tho wiley wolves and drive them to a convenient and well-located spot for an attack, had a tendency to discourage this infant industry, and it was with small hopes of success that the twenty-five men under command of Capt. John Ingalls left to join the command of Gen. Marsh Stephens in what was then supposed to be a hopeless task. However, they were brave men to undertake what others had failed to do, and many were the jibes and jeers that were flung at them as they left town. "The north line was composed of men from Elmore; west, of Armstrong and Swea City; south and east, of Ledyard and Bancroft. The men were formed in lino at the appointed place between 11 and 12 o'clock, and the order of 'Forward, march I' was given. The men were kept well in line, and nothing relieved the monotony of the march but an occasional glimpse of a jack-rabbit or a cotton-tail until a wolf was driven in by the west line. It came up close to the north line, then turned and went south to the center of the circle. When it came in sight of the west line several horsemen broke from the lino, contrary to the rules, and there was a lively chase for the wolf and he was soon killed. At about the same time Gen. Stephens started to drive to the north line and drove a wolf from a slough, where it had been hiding in the tall grass, and it went south and was killed by the Ledyard men. It is also claimed that one wolf went through the line at the southwest. _" The wolves were killed before the circle had become very small and but little attention was paid to the small game, so enthusiastic wore they over the fact that they had secured wolves. Hundreds of shots were fired and other expressions of hilarity were indulged in. The round-up occurred about 1:30, and those from Elmore were invited to Ledyard for dinner and were given a royal reception. "Thus the people of the north end have shown the originators of the scheme how to capture wolves, and have saved the county further ridi~ cule." AN OEATOE PEOM ALGOUA. Every man, woman, and child in Dolgo- ville lost their share of it. The storekeeper, the landlord, the real estate owner, the doctor, the lawyer, the liveryman, the tailor, in short everyone who lives in Dolgeville, and even beyond; the people of Little Falls and other towns where we get our supplies from, lost a part of it, FREE KAW MATERIAL HUMBUG. Many of my friends are astonished that I oppose the Wilson bill, because they think free wool, free raw material must benefit manufacturers. Let me show you how adroitly the free traders try to humbug people with their free raw material. The woolen schedule of the proposed Wilson tariff. admits the so-called raw material free of duty and reduces the duty on foreign hammerfclt about 80 cents per pound If we investigate we find that American manufacturers, and through them consumers of American made woolen goods, never paid tho duty on wool, except a small fraction thereof, Tho foreign wool growers paid the larger share of it for the privilege of selling in our markets, just as the Bermuda potato growers, who appeared before the Wilson committee, admitted that they pay tho duty on potatoes which they send here, and not our consumers. Statistics of the prices of wool in the various markets of the world for the past 30 years prove conclusively the duty is chiofly paid by tho foreigner, not by the American consumer. But grunting even that American manufacturers did pay tho entire duty on wool, do you suppose for u moment that foreign wool growers will sell their wool at tho same price if tho demand for thoir wool is increased by three to four hundred million pounds per year, an amount equal to the total American product? Certainly not! We may perhaps get our wool' two three cents cheaper than now with duty of 11 cents per pound, but tho duction will not bo more This will to a re- A Rival lor James Wliltcomb Rlley and. Bill Nye in After Dinner- Speeches. Geo. B. Johnson, who dispenses lumber to the needy, and who has not been rushed lately, has gone to telling hia experiences at banquets up at Minneapolis and has jumped into the front rank of humorists at once. A late number of the Northwestern Lumberman has the following notice of him, accompanied by a good portrait: "Mr, Johnson haa suddenly come to- the front as an after-dinner speaker. It is said by those competent to judge, that he is the equal' of many a crack! talker who is widely known. Therd are Hoo-Hoos and others who would banquet on Johnny cake ond water if Johnson were only attached to the tail of it. Ho had made no preparations as a speaker, and, I understand, really surprised himself. I don't suppose you can see from the shape of his head how he should bo able to make a better speech than tho rest of us. It would take some of those experts in the medical line to do that. For $50 a day it would be no trick to got some of them to say that Johnson was a blooming idiot, or that he was as wise and profound as Socrates—the shoot they took would depend on which side of the case they wore engaged. Maybe you will say that this reference is lugged in- I will admit it, but we people in Chica'go have been watching tho Cronin and Harrison cases, and are so disgusted, that we feel like slapping those venal doctors every chance wo get.
