Clarkson in 1868 was chairman of the state republican committee And was an urgent advocate of riegro suffrage, Louis Buttkay, a nephew of the Hungarian orator, having come to this country for liberty, took an active interest in the struggle and was made a member of the committee by Mr. Clarkson. The election was won and Ipwa.gave the franchise to the negro a year before the amendment to the national constitution was adopted. On the night of the election a big crowd gathered in front of the headquarters of the committee '-In Des Moines and Mr. Clarkson introduced Ruttkay to make the speech. The reporter says that he "had a tongue tipped with much of the fire that made the name of his uncle immortal, and made a short speech' that is still quoted as one of the jewelled possessions of the intellectual people of Iowa." He is described as a handsome man oteplendid stature and bearing. He was taken ill soon after-• wards and died in France while yet under 30 years of age.

Janies" fi, Edmonds of Washington^ foririeriy oMe of foiva's leading lawyers at Iowa City, is giving $100,000 to the state university, _______ The soldiers' monument should be located right on the capital grounds. No one who has seen the handsome confederate monument at Montgomery,*. Alabama, can doubt that in the Jeast. There the monument and capital are but a few rods apart and neither dwarfs the other. To put the monument off in the city somewhere is to make nothing but a local ornament of it. The Daily Capital has entered its fourth year, under Lafe Young's manage m'ent. It is one of the most readable papers published in Iowa. The State Register says: "To Senator Funk, chairman of the committee on the suppression of intemperance, much credit is due for the fact that the republican party has kept its promise to the people. He has stood like a tower of strength." Gov. Peck over in Wisconsin got his blood up Friday and ordered a prize fight stopped in Milwaukee. LOCATING THE ASYLUM. One of thehottestand best engineered fights ever seen in Des Moines occurred over the location 'Of the new insane asylum last Thursday evening. The legislature met in joint session to locate by' ballot, and the agreement was that after the 12th ballot the lowest contestant should be dropped and so on till a site was chosen. LeMars, Sheldon, Cherokee, Fort (Bodge, and Storm Lake were represented by goodly delegations armed with maps, 'Charts, natural deposits, samples of spring water, and eloquence. A junketing committee'h'ad settled on Storm .Lake as the place .and its representatives smiled complacently and itook it easy. But, alas! the probable .direction a legislature will take cannot be safely estimated from the repent <of a junketing committee, and Storm Lake fell early in the fight, the very'first .one to drop out. Then Fort Dodge went by the board having come into'the -contest •late. This left Cherokee, .-Sheldon, and XeMars, the three original applicants. !Ed. Chassell had worked the whole :asylum'plan through 'from the begin- ming, and LeMars seemed .certain of it .-at first. But Senator Dent had 'Voted 'with the republicans to reconsider the ; ^Carpenter bill, and his democratic! brethren decided to knife LeMars. Then the Milwaukee company did yoe- man service for Sheldon, on its line. Then Senator Meservey and the'Chero- kee fine workers had made it appear that Cherokee was modest, had the best spring water, and was running on its/merits. The ballot was attended with intense excitement, Cherokee getting 50, Sheldon 47, and LeMars 46, and'r-LeMars dropped out. The final ballot gave the asylum to Cherokee. Aawunusing feature of the campaign was the circular proposing Poeahontas Center. Geo, E. Roberts of Fort Dodge is credited with it. It was a clever take off.on Storm Lake which has only one railroad and which boasted of its geographical location and fine lake. A few paragraphs of the circular were as follows: " We a*eiiu the exact center of the territory to be tributary to the hospital. " We railroad, but we have been trying for a^reat many years to get one and we shall continue to do so in the future. 11 Excellent tor ick can be made here at |6 per thousand. We know this because we have sent away some clay to be tested, and parties having brick machines to sell tell us it is the ;best clay they ever saw. We buy our pw» brick elsewhere, but we can make brick good enough for the state, "The water supply ja definitely settled. We have a lake t5 feet deep. No trees around it to obstruct the view, In favorable seasons the bottom of the lake is all good tilable land. At such times the relatives of patients will be relieved of ail anxiety that the latter may drown," •• Louis Kossuth used to pronounce "develop" as though it were devil up. That is what ,it amounts to a good many times. The bill to permit the manufacture of liquors in Iowa was carried in the senate Monday and beaten in the house yesterday. In the senate 14 democrats and 13 republicans voted for it and 19 republicans against. In the house all the democrats and enough republicans to make 44 votes were for it and 56 republicans were against. Senator Funk and Representative Sessions voted for the bill. _ The Carroll Herald hits the nail: "Now for enforcement. Let's have no foolishness with the new liquor law. It ought to be enforced up to the handle. The wisdom of the measure can be shown only by faithful enforcement." The state of public sentiment in the secession city of Dubuque is shown in the following editorial advice in the Times, the republican daily: " Let the liquor dealers of Dubuque county make up their minds to regard the ' tax' as a license and pay it regularly and keep orderly houses and Dubuque public sentiment will not likely interfere with them by enforcing the obnoxious features of either the new or the old law." _ The Courier clips a column of democratic complaints against the mulct law. The people will begin to believe that they have secured a pretty good law after all.

Burt Mbhitow D, E, Johnson of the Algona normal school was a pleasant caller at our sanctum last Saturday. Mr, Johnson says that the consolidation of the Garner school with that of Algona will odd much to the attend' ance of the school. The Champion says that the local managers had to help the "Birds of Night 1 ' theatrical company out of town last week. They came from Algona broke and did not make enough to pay expenses, The Champion says: The policy of those who got left on their account will henceforth be pay in advance or no deal. The Algona prize fight drew like a porous plaster. The LuVerne News says: Several of our sports chartered a hand car last Saturday afternoon and laboriously pumped their passage against the wind to Algona to witness a prize fight advertised to come off there that evening. They returned some time in the night, a sore and sadly disappointed crowd. The prize fight didn't materialize. San born Sun: The third man on the middle division to get hurt since outlast issue was Oilman Ross, who brakes for Conductor Frank Hurlbut. Ross was getting a car at Algona for his train, No. 71, and was hanging on the side when a car on the passing track brushed him off. He fell to the ground and the wheels of an empty went over his left arm', breaking the forearm and terribly lacerating the muscles. Ross was taken to Mason City. The other two men who were injured were Conductor Boyer and Gordon Tanner, on the middle, and George Reed is the west-end unfortunate. HOW KOSStJTH WAS NAMED Men, P, M, d&ssady Tells ttow ttfty of the Coanttes of Iowa Cttftie by Their Distinguished M«n Were Hanored In the Selection, and thus this County Was Fortunate. Through the kindness of Hon, P. M. Cassady of Des Moines, who introduced the bill naming Kossuth county, -THE UPPER DEs MoiNES is able to add to the Chapter of county history given last week some interesting details. Id response to ft note Mr, Cassady writes: DBS MoiNBS, March 29.—I introduced the bill in the senate in the early days of the session, December, 1860, flaming nnd defining? the boundaries of 50 counties. On my motion it was referred to the committee on new counties. 1 was a member of the committee, not the chairman, In preparing the bill and selecting names 1 was assisted by Andrew J. Stevens, afterwards auditor of state, and Dr. Clark of Jackson county.

Clark will deliver an address at the national editorial association meeting, which will be held at Ashbury PaSk, New Jersey, in July. Nothing better will'.be given at that meeting. Senator Finn says of the new liquor law: "The petition feature suits me entirely. Every man who signs for a siloon must have his name hung up in the auditor's office, to be read of all men." Sam Clark says: "Trust the people, trust the people, don't be afraid to trust the people; that is the supreme law of republican government."

A young man by the name of Sam Eslick, the Messenger says was infatuated with a young lady, and on their way across the river from where they had attended- a revival meeting, he pulled a revolver and made her promise to marry him, or to suffer the consequences. The poor girl preferring a life with him reluctantly consented. She came to the city last week and bashfully told her story. A warrant was promptly issued for his arrest and at his trial in Justice Chantland's court he was bound over to keep the peace and his bonds fixed at $500, in default of which he is now languishing in the county jail. Sanborn Sun: Last Friday morning Marshal Palen received a telegram from Bruce Scott stating that two men answering the description of the men suspected of having burglarized a clothing store at Algona were in a box car of an incoming freight train. The marshal acted on Scott's message, and arres_ted the two men when the train got into the yard. A search of the men revealed the following property: Two complete outfits of clothing, ten dozen handkerchiefs, three pairs of gloves, six silk handkerchiefs, a bill-book, a purse, eight pairs of cuff buttons, ten set of shirt studs, two overcoats,,and §1.69 in cash, which were positively identified by B. Wolpert' of Algona. Mr. Ambler of Erametsburg also identified six razors as property taken from his barber shop at that place. THE DECLAMATORY CONTEST.

Wright of Indiana, a brother of our genial ex-Senator Wright of this city. Audubon died the latter part of January, 1851, in New York City. Yours truly, . P. M. CASSADY. Mr. Cassady also incloses a paragraph from an article prepared by him for the Iowa Annals, which will be published next November, and which is pf interest at this time both because it is associated with the county and because it contains some interesting reminiscences of the great Hungarian: "Kossuth county was named in honor of the Hungarian patriot and leader who was then making a tour of the United States. When he visited St. Louis, Mo., Hon. John A. Kasson, then a resident of that city, made the welcoming speech to him on behalf of the city,.', For about a quarter of a century he hasTesided in Turin, Italy. A few years since a delegation from Hungary visited him at his residence and presented him with a box of dirt taken from his birthplace, and in their remarks among other things, said to him: 'You have refused to visit Hungary, we now bring a part of Hungary to you.' At the request of Charles Aldrich, curator, some two years since, Miss Anna Ruttkay, a resident of this city, wrote to her grandmother, Madame Ruttkay, sister of General Kossuth, requesting her to obtain the autograph and photograph of her distinguished brother for the Aldrich collection, which request was gran ted. The same can now be seen in the collection in the capital in the rooms set apart for that purpose. Kossuth is in his ninetieth year with his mental faculties still unimpaired and physically hale and hearty until quite recently. . (He died March 21,1894.) A number of others then living were honored with names, but he is the only one remaining at this time who was so honored." Mr. Cassady's interesting references to Kossuth as associated with Iowa and lowan's recall the letter in the Register last week, written by Francis Varga, who describes himself as "now a resident of this great state of Iowa, and county of Decatur for nearly 43 years, who with another friend living in this same county are the only ones of the 15 exiles who never went back to our native land, who in his whole heart became an American," Iowa gained a little Hungarian settlement from those who were not captured and they have been among her best citizens. Twelve years ago a son of this Francis Varga was a promising student in.,tho state university. Among other reminiscences of interest in connection with Kossuth is that of his introduction of the soft hat, for which a grateful masculine public should never fail to giye thanks. Among the thousands going down to the Battery to welcome the great orator and patriot as he landed at New York, was Mr. Henry A. Hurlbut, at that time a member of the firm of Swift & Hurlbut, who were largely interested in the hat manufacturing business. Noticing Kossuth's peculiar headgear, adorned with a feather, he conceived the idea of manufacturing a new style of soft hats, and to place them upon the market under the name "Kossuth hat." The new style made a tremendous hit, Kossuth hats were all the rage. From this little incident dates the fashion of all sorts of soft hats and top hats, unknown heretofore in the American -hat business. Kossuth also introduced the full beard into America. An old resident of Philadelphia says: " I well recollect his handsome appearance as he rode in a carriage along Chestnut street, and the fervor of the welcome he received, Medals bearing his profile were sold about the streets, his soft felt hat with sable plume was the fashion of the day, and full beards with mustache, which before that time were sel4om worn in this country, were gradually introduced." Two things combined to make Kpssutb's advent in America memorable, the man and the occasion, While in prison he had begun and finished his study of the English language with Shakespeare's plays, and the beauty of his language and the magnificent opulence pf his figures of speech made Aim one of the greatest popular orators who ever spoke on PUP sou, Then be came just as the slavery au4 4isunipn agitation were distracting the country and just as the whig were trying to quiet the disturbance with compromises. The Hungarian struggle fpp liberty was seized upon because it was remote, and because it was popular, as a, fitting means of stimulating a national feeling at hope, Daniel Webster admitted that be wrote bis bragging letter to the Austrian minister mainly to stir up sentiment at home, and the whole nation went into a furor of enthusiasm over Kossuth In prder to stave off secession and to keep the people stimulated with national pride. Kossuth did not understand this at first and hoped for actual assistance in b^ revolution. When, it ' ' he realised the situation fce went l *4J«»E The City Counull TnkftB Afctiott 1« the Matter of a Better Crossing ftt the Wfttep MlJl-f lie pfttty Will l)« Its siuiro. Tfhe new road from the mill southeast to tho Free Methodist church was adopted by the city council Saturday night without a dissenting vote. The big petition from Union township was referred to the board of supervisors, and one equally big from Algona residents was ordered filed. The following resolution states the official action: Whereas, *he 0. M. & St. P. My. C6. has agreed to put in a bridge for an overhead crossing on the new wagon road from the mill bridge to Jones street and also to donate $200 to aid in tho work, of removing the dirt from under their track and assist in putting the balance of said road in good condition. Therefore be it ' Resolved, by the city council that the mayor be instructed to enter into a contract upon behalf Of the city of Algona with said railway company to the effect that We will open the said road on the above conditions, and that he be authorized to let to the lowest responsible bidder the contract, for grading and completing said road in accordance with the profile, and specifications prepared by C. B. Hutchins now on file in the clerk's office, and that the city appropriate the sum of $150 for said purpose, provided that the said county and other interested parties defray the balance of said expense as above provided. Some question is raised .about, the proposition made by the Milwaukee company, as they say they will open this road on the terms proposed before which included closing the Thorington street crossing. The town will not do that now, but, it is reported that this is understood by the company. Work will undoubtedly begin soon and .a great accommodation be given 'those who come in from the north.

MISCELLANEOUS. The council met at A. Hutchison's office, as he has been elected city clerk in place of S. S. Sessions. Sumner Stebbins was chosen again street commissioner. He has been a good official. A crossing is ordered west of D. H. Hutchins' home on Hall street, and a new sidewalk in the northeast part of town. A large number of bills were paid. OUB BURGLARS AT EMMETSBUEG, After IlJfllnff YToJpert's Store They Steal Kcizors at Emmetsburg and Do Petty TlUevlne at Uutuveii, A couple of young tramps, apparently about 22 years of age, have been making a predatory excursion along the line of the Milwaukee road, says the Emmetsburg Reporter, They must have arrived in Emmetsburg some time on Thursday, for about 8 o'clock Friday morning they entered the barber shop of W, Ambli, under the Waverly, he having stepped put for a few minutes, and stole nine razors. They now had good clothes and evidently thought that they would present a better appearance if smoothly shaven. They then proceeded to Buthven, where they disposed of some pf their stolen property and committed some light thefts, and then started for Sheldon, where they arrived Friday at dark, Meanwhile the news of their Algona theft bad reached that place and the authorities were on the lookout for then? and gobbled them up while they were at lunch in a restaurant. They were taken to Algona Saturday and placed in jail to await trial. It must haye been tough pn them to shed their fine pew apparel and don their old duds again. Mr. Ambli was in for pied Monday, by the mayor pf Sheldon, that be had some razors which bad been taken from thenj. four Some of the readers of TUB tlppfift DBS MOINES who havb neither the time nor inclination to wade through the new mulct law 1 may be interested in knowing what preliminaries must be observed before a saloon cati be started in Kossuth county. As the county has no city of .6,000 inhabitants it is a single voting district and-— First: There must be filed With the county auditor a written statement of consent signed by 65 per cent, of those who voted in the county last fall. Thei signatures must all .be secured within 30 days of the date of filing, and all must be accompanied by an affidavit of some reputable person .stating that the signature was witnessed/ Second: This petition from the whole county being, oh file, it must., appear that 60 per cent, of the voters 1 of the township in which an incorporated town is located are on the petition, and that 60 per cent, of the voters of the incorporated town itself are on the petition. Then saloons may be allowed to run in : such incorporated towns—they cannot, be maintained,, under any .circumstances elsewhere—on the following terms: i. • : 1, The saloon keeper .shall pay $600 quarterly in advance as license. 2.. He £hall,file with the, county auditor a bond in the sum of $3,000, signed by two • bondsmen, who shall each qualify in double the amount of the bond. 8. He shall also file a resolution, regularly adopted by the city council, consenting to the sale'of liquor, and a written statement of consent from all the resident freeholders owning property within 50 feet of, the premises .where, at is proposed to ca'rry on business. • . ; Doing these things shall operate as a bar to the present. prohibitory law so long as the following regulations are observed: . >•<..- , . •. 1. The selling shall ; be carried'on in a •• single room with but one entrance, and that upon a public street, with no obstructions to the view of the bar by passers by. 2. There shall be no chairs, benches nor other furniture in front of the bar. 8. A list of names of all persons employed about the place shall be filed, and no others shall be allowed behind the bar. 4. There shall be no ^gambling nor gaming with .cards, dice, billiards or any ; other device, nor any music, dancing or other form of amusement, either in the room where the liquor selling is carried on or in any adjoining room or building controlled by the seller. 5. There shall be no obscene or impure decorations, inscriptions or placards or any such thing in the places, and there shall be no female person about it. 6. The place of business shall not be opened earlier than 6 a. m. nor kept open, later than 10 p. m., nor shall any sales be made on Sunday, or on election or legal holidays. 7. There shall be no sale to minors, drunkards or intoxicated persons, nor knowingly to anyone who has taken any recognized cures for drunkennees. • 8. There shall be no sale to any person whose wife, husband, parent, child, brother, sister, guardian, ward over 14 years or age, or employer has given written notice forbidding such sale. Failure as to any of these puts the '' prohibitory law in full operation. In connection with this law it should be remembered that many very able lawyers say that the bar to the present law is unconstitutional and will be so declared by the courts. It should also be remembered that the Indiana courts hold that a saloon is a nuisance and the property may be held liable for any damages. It should also be remembered that the $600 tax is assessed against the real estate the saloon is on. HOKSE TBADEBS TOPOPULAB. Wm. Hughes Trades a Horse Affected with a Mortgage and is Captured In Algona — Didn't Know It was Illegal. Sheriff Samson received a telegram Friday to take in one Wm. Hughes, otherwise known down in Humboldt as "Cyclone Bill," and hold him till heard from. Bill was found and put up a good team as security and started for Livermore to settle up. He was met half way down by the constable, He had traded a mortgaged horse to J, N. Fetterly, who had been using it until last Thursday, when Ed. Turner dropped around and took it away on a mortgage, which Hughes gave some weeks previous. This was a little rough on Mr. Fetterly, as he had given him another horse and $30 in money for the animal. Hughes was ignorant of the fact that his act was a violation of the law, and had no intention of beating anybody out. of anything, He settled it up and came back and got bis team from Sheriff 1 Samson. He can't be much of a cyclone if he hasn't learned yet that it isn't safe to trade mortgaged horses, Perfectly Well Established.
