In spite of cold and stormy weather it was well attended, and, it is needless to add, it was royally entertained, for Humboldt, While not the largest small city in Iowa, is the most cultured and hospitable. Tho discussions were interesting and were participated in by some of the ablest editors of the state. The evening address by Lnfo Young, president of the state association, was in his own inimitable style, and the banquet was delightful. S. C. Platt, who learned his persuasive eloquence down in LuVerne, presented a request to the association to moot next summer at Io,wa Falls in such attractive form that it was unanimously accepted, and everybody agreed to visit the " handsomest" little city in Iowa in August. President Young left the beaten track of editorial addresses, and branched out into a vigorous protest against the socialistic tendencies of the time. He is making a fight in Des Moines against municipal ownership, and is opposed to the further extension of government interference with business. He was liberally applauded, especially as Rev. Herron of Grinnell had lately been in Humboldt and had stated that no man could be a Christian and own private property. Al. Adams was, as ever, a genial host, and was aided by the Jaquas of the Republican. Humboldt left nothing undone. The Humboldt ladies' quartette is the best in Iowa, it is safe to say, a very exceptional musical organization. The Humboldt citizens made witty speeches at the banquet. The service was perfect, and none but pleasant memories remain of this semi-annual reunion of what is now admitted to be the liveliest editorial association in the west. in Iowa, and While the report enlarges up6n details of book keeping perhaps unduly, it is a monument of industry, painstaking, thoroughness, and conscientious examination,' The Republican repeats its sneer at the visit to neighboring stales, saying: "One of the many howling farces incident to the transaction of public business by the general assembly is the recent 20- days' trip of Senator Healey examining the management of the state institutions of Massachusetts, New York, Michigan and Wisconsin. He is back in the state senate recommending that the management of our state institutions bo turned upside down." Equipppcd us ho wns by a year's study of state management, Senator Healey was prepared to learn more that was to the point in 20 days than other men might learn in a year. The mere fact that he made the trip at all is a matter of credit to him, and a guarantee of fair and intelligent action on his part. How many legislators proposing much more- radical reforms have considered it necessary to visit neighboring states at their own expense for oven one day's study of results? Many papers nnd public men believe with the Republican that more IB ox- pcctcd from a single state board of control than will be secured. Its friends seem ovor-sanguinc. But all must admit that tho showing for tho present system of management is not flattering, and it becomes those who represent stalo institutions to speak modestly about earnest efforts in the direction of improvement, without much questioning of the motives or intelligence of public men who have spent a year without compensation in studying with signal ability and honesty into the evils to bo overcome. THF ISSUE FAIRLY STATED. The Courier says frankly that it does not believe in.a declaration that at all hazards this country should maintain all its dollars equal in value: "The Courier replies that under the circumstances it does not favor the Nelson resolution." It covers its answer up in a column of irrelevant assertionsaboutgoldbugsand thechamelionic UPPER DES MOINES, but the answer is there and with it arc a few other sentences that show the Courier's real attitude, and the real attitude of the Tellerites. For instance speaking of our currency prior to 1873 it says: "But even admitting that gold and silver did not circulate together, we still had bimetallism. Gold and silver received free coinage, and the debtor was at liberty to pay in either." And speaking of paying tho bonded debt it says again: "With silver restored to its original rights it would not be a 50-cent dollar, but a 100-cent dollar. But at all events there would be no dishonesty in paying our bonds That states the issue fairly. The republicans say that the public faith should be pledged to maintain every dollar issued in this country equal in value to every other dollar, no matter what system of currency and coinage we adopt. The Teller-Bryan party says we should set silver loose at 16 to 1 and let it land where it will. If it is worth 100 cents well and good, if it is worth 50 cents, payment of the debts of the country in it will be fair and just. Here is the issue for the fall campaign. Let it be fairly argued and let the people once again decide whether they want to return to the days of fluctuating dollars. Let the people decide whether bimetallism means gold and silver circulating together at a guaranteed equality, or means gold and silver coined free at a bogus ratio, with silver worth 50 cents and gold all in Europe or out of circulation. NEWS AND OOMMENT. If Gov. Shaw appoints a stalo board of control it will bo made up of men of state-wide reputation for business sagacity and integrity. The democrats in Iowa have dropped tho liquor issue and 13 of them voted for woman suffrage. Who would have believed it? Tho Courier seems to have tin idea that the national treasury is actually paying out gold. The fact is the treasury has gained over $50,000,000 of gold since Mc- ICiuloy went in. The government pays in drafts and theso drafts are deposited in banks and credit taken. All anybody wants is to know that his draft calls for money as good as gold. All tho Tellerites want is to make the drafts only as good as silver, unsupported by the national credit. President McKinley has done right in going slow in the Cuban-Spanish imbroglio. If wo have war let the Spanish begin it, and then let Spain pay for every cent of damage or be wiped off the geographies—the latter preferred. E. S. Ellsworth of Iowa Falls has made an offer in tho east to pay any defaulted mortgage on Iowa lands, and give a bonus of $100. Not one has been offerred. A mortgage on Iowa laud is better than a government bond. That is the reason interest rates are getting so low iu Iowa. The Courier editor professes to have seen gold and silver in quantities used side by sido as money prior to 1878. The silver must have been small change, which has circulated since 1853 on gold credit. Only $8,000,000 all told of silver dollars had been coined prior to ISTa, and none were in circulation as money in Mr. Hinchou's time. Very few rneii in Algona have ever seen a silver dollar that was coined prior to 1878. We doubt if the Courier 1 editor ever saw one, much less a pile of them. But even an isolated instance would prove nothing. Every school boy knows that silver dollars and gold dollars never circulated side by side from 1702 to 1873 as money. Geo. E. Roberts writes home to the Messenger from Washington and says: " Tho country needs nothing now but to be let alone, to be free from apprehension. If it could be known today that republican policies would be continued four years from 1900, business would go forward with even greater leaps than it now does." Your Uncle Horace Boies' candidacy for congress in the Henderson district is not meeting with unqualified favor in his own party. The democrats down there insist that his latest utterances are not in harmony with the Chicago platform on the silver question, hence the opposition in the ranks of his own party. LET IT STAND ON ITS MEHITS. It is unfortunate that any paper representing a leading state institution, as the Iowa City Republican does, should make so ill considered comment on any proposed legislation for the regulation of state institutions as it does on the state board of control measure. By way of introduction it says: " A hasty and necessarily superficial examination, such as the special legislative investigating committee gave the state institutions last summer, and a 30-days' visit to four widely separated states by an excitable young man, hardly furnish sufficient reasons for overhauling the management of pur state institutions." The Republican is imposition to know that the examination made by tbe special legislative committee was neither b.a.Bty por superficial, and that Sena- Jar JJealey, whatever the Republican may know of his temperament else- was not " excitable" while en Judge Lot Thomas is announced as a candidate for congress in the Eleventh, Geo. D. Perkins' district. This, taken in connection with other facts, indicates that Mr. Perkins will have a fight on his hands. He is a candidate, also, to succeed himself. Judge Thomas is a widely-known and able jurist, and if chosen will represent that district with credit. the inscription: "Children not expected." After scanning it closely over her specs the old lady said: " That's all right, but they'll have 'em just the same." Bailey is booming tho new court house for Britt. He is publishing the picture of a pretty good looking building Britt is willing to give. N. B. Bacon, who has reached 98 years, writes an interesting letter which is published in the Wesley Reporter, giving his early experiences. Prof. .Leonard ,T. Smith of AlgoU has arranged to spend one day of each week in Emmetsburg for the purpose of giving instruction in piano, organ, and harmony. Armstrong Journal: A Kossuth county man is suing for a divorce because his wife bus cold foot. Some men expect to got a base-burner thrown in with a woman's heart. Tho Ledynrd Loader don't liko Peter J. Walker's suggestion: From tho squibs sent to J. M. Farley by Potor J. Walker of Lolls Greek wo would infer that Mr. Walker was suffering from a severe attack of bellyache. Armstrong Journal: John Da mm of Kossuth county, who was married in Webster county last week, was congratulated by tho old folks, tho telegram Buying: "Please ncccpt the congratulations of the whole Diimm family." Eslhorvillo Republican: SiunRcanoy this week sold bis entire stock of clothing, boots and shoes to tho Kraft, Clothing Co. of Algona. The invoice will begin next week and change of possession will then ho made. The business will bo continued at tho same place, tho now firm leasing tho building of Mr. Heancy. Ledyard Loader: Tho farmers' institute hold at Algona last week was a grand success in every particular. North Kossuth could have an organization of this kind if the farmers would work together and interest themselves in the matter as they should, as a groat deal can be learned at those meetings. Wo broached this subject, once before and some fellows with foresight about as long as the tail of a billy goat said all we were working for was tho money there was in it. Suppose those follows write the Algona papers and ask them how much they got out of tho meeting down there. Tho long continued fight between C. Breon Sr., and W. H. Kuhn for the custody of the boy, Loo Kuhn, has, we think, been brought to a final conclusion by tho recent decision of Judge Sherwin. Mr. Broon brought, a writ of habeas corpus in tho Hancock county district court for tho restoration of the boy to his custody. After the testimony was all in the judge talked to the boy a few minutes and then decided Mr. Kuhn was entitled to tho care and custody of his boy. Sullivan & McMahon and Clarke & Cohenour of Algona appeared for Breen, and A. C. Riplcy and J. Kelley of Garner appeared for Kuhn. NEARLY KILLED BY A KICK. A Spencer Mini Has n Serious Time In Aljionn. The Spencer News has an item of local interest: S. C. Munger, while at Algona last week, was kicked by a horse and had several ribs broken. Ho was putting his team in a livery barn and while going through an alley with horses on either sido, a calf ran in and frightened several of them. Mr. Munger was knocked down, but was soon on his foot again only to receive a severe kick just over the heart, giving him a severe shock and breaking several ribs. Ho was brought to Spencer Tuesday and is now at the home of his son, getting along nicely. THE NEWS FBOM WESLEY. The Quarterly Conference—A New Paper IH Now Assured-Other News Nates. Elder Yetter of Algona was here Friday night and held his third quarterly conference of this charge. Rev. Day of Algona came over Saturday and talked to the Epworth League in the evening and administered tho sacrament Sunday morning to the church, and also preached again in tho evening. As a preacher Rev. Day is second to none in the conference, and notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather there was a good crowd out to hear him in the evening and all speak in highesttorms of his sermon. D. H. Bane of Normal, 111., was here several days last week looking after his land interests. He owns a large tract of land in Buffalo township. The storm Saturday .and Sunday was a good reminder of some of the winters we used to enjoy here 20 years ago. Wesley is assured of having another newspaper. Christ. Overback will be the editor and proprietor of it. He has sent to Chicago for his outfit and expects to have everything in running order in about a month. Mr. Overback is one of our Wesley boys and learned to set his first type here on the Reporter. For the past two years he has been A PLEA FOR THE FISHES. METHOD POR THEIR PROPAGATION John O. Smith Offers Some Sugeea- tlolis thnt Arc Surely Worthy of Consideration. To the Editor: Tho products of Iowa arc tho wonder of the world, and while we produce such large quantities of corn, wheat and other grain, raise such large numbers of fine horses, cattle, hogs and sheep, wo pay but little attention to the cultivation of fish nnd game, two articles of food much more easily produced than grain, or meats of any kind. If they have a fair chance in the world the simply produce themselves. When tho white man camo into Iowa every lake and stream was full of flsli and tho prairie and woods were stocked with game. We have seen tho game destroyed and nothing done to replace it. Soon tho laken and streams will consist of water without fish. With very little trouble our waters could bo nindo to produce more fish than ever before, and wo need the fish as an article of food. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are sent out of the slate every year for fish. Wo might just as well produce most of the fish that is needed in our state. Take the Dos Moines river for an example, commence at the source of the stream and about onco in ton miles put in a low dam, say five or six foot high, continue those dams till you got bolow the city of Des Moines about 100 miles. After that the water will bo deep enough without the dams to back tho water up. Each one of theso dams would back up the water from six to ton miles and make a large fish pond for the fish to live in when they camo. up out of tho Mississippi river. Tho dams would not bo high enough to stop tho fish from going over them when they go up the river in the spring, as generally tho water is high enough at that season of the year so that the dams would hardly bo noticed. Wo would then have a continuation of fish ponds the whole length of the river, and every river in Iowa might be treated in tho same way with but very little expense, and our rivers bo made to produce nearly all tho fish food that would bo needed in our state. The dams could bo made like tho "beam dams," of old trees and mud and strong dams could be made in that way at a very little expense. If we had low dams in our rivers, there would be plenty of water so that tho fish would not dry out in the summer or freeze out in tho winter. All the lish that would be needed to stock the streams would come up out of the Mississippi river. It would not do to have the dams high enough so that the fish could not got over them in the spring, as there is a great run of fish up the streams at that season of the year. if it were riot for tho dam in the run tit Algona the creameries in this part of tho county would have no chance to get their ice for summer use, which they must have to run successful creameries. Iowa is bound to have more creameries and must have more ice, and it would be a great expense if all the ice had to be brought in on the railroads. With a continuation of ponds in the rivers through the state all the ice could be got that would be needed for creameries and other uses. I understand that there were as high as 200 teams loaded with ice some days ago above tho dam at Algona and all for the creameries in the outside townships. If we did not have this "mill* pond" here all the ice would have to be brought in on the railroads. It is a great benefit to the fish to have the ico cut in the ponds; it gives them breathing places. When tho ice wns being cut in the mill pond this winter large black bass and other fish would come to the top of tho water, showing us that the pond was well stocked with line fish. Most everyone likes to catch fish, but all are not able to go to the large lakes and thus they are deprived of a great pleasure, which with little trouble they might have near their homes. I would not have any dam built in the river high enough to prevent all the fish go- and ono can readily see that the increase will be very great if they are well taken care of. We want more birds. Thousands of our song birds are destroyed every year for decorative purposes, and any country without song and game birds is a desolate place. JOHN G. SMITH. TEACHERS AT WEBSTER OITY. They Took n Dny Off and Visited the Schools of That Place—An Enjoy- nble Trip. By permission of the school board the public school teachers spent one dny last week visiting tho schools of Webster City. The U. D. M. man secured the following items of interest from Supl. Spencer: Q. What did you do in Webster City? A. Wo behaved ourselves pretty well considering that we were away from home and had been on our good behavior for a long time. Wo left Algona at 7:05 a. m., and came back at 11:10 p. m., making a long day of it. Q. Treat you pretty well? A. First rate. They could not have done bettor. Supl. Martindale met us at the depot and at onco escorted us to the high school where tho morning exercises were in progress. Wo wore 0,11- tertained by tho teachers at dinner and supper and at an informal reception at the high school building just before leaving. Webster City teachers arc a jolly set of people and wore very kind lo us. Q. -Do they have good school buildings? A. Yes, thoy have two largo brick buildings and a, one-room building on the outskirts of town. The brick buildings are heated by steam from the city plant, a block away. This arrangement is very economical and saves much dirt about the buildings. Q. How's their high school? A. Good. They have an enrollment of nearly 200 and are doing excellent work. _ Their strong high school is a great incentive lo faithful work in the grades. Q. What else did you see that was especially good? A. Splendid work in music, good reading and a. fine kindergarten. Their text book arrangement, Supt. Martindale says, reduces the cost of texts nearly one-half. Q. How is that? A. The district purchases tho books at reduced rates from the publishers, paying tho freight from the contingent fund. Tho books are sold lo pupils at cost. When a pupil goes from ono grade to another Or loaves school, the district purchases his books at a fail- price. Q. You had a profitable time, didn't you? A. Yes. The benefit comes not only from the knowledge gained of a good system of schools, but from the inspiration derived by coming in contact with other teachers and their methods. We all lelt well repaid for going. THE MONTH'S MAaAZINES. The account in tho Atlantic for March by K. Mitsukuri of the family relations and domestic and social life of the Japanese is both new and entertaining, and brings the daily habits and manners of this interesting people vividly before the reader.

When the fish go up the river they all get as close to the dam as possible and do not strike the fish way in the river below the dam, and most fish ways are so narrow that the fish will not observe them on the way up the river. Most of our game fish can go over a dam where there is not more than two feet fall. Most of our native game birds will soon be a thing of the past and we have as yet done nothing to stock the state with other varieties of game birds which stand civilization. There are but few breeding places left for the prairie hen. We have no waste lands, SOUNDS PEP TIMES. A little Girl Up in Jfertlmvest Kos- eutl» Nearly Frozen to Death. Little Mary WhHoraft, while going to school at lawa lake last Wednesday morning, froze her hands so badly that it was feared amputation of one would be necessary. After thawing they were perfectly black and were covered with baking soda till they looked natural, then dressed in sweet oil, and '»ter in lime water and Unseed oil. Pre. Gannon and WHkenson of Armstrong were consulted in regard to them $MJd they are doing nicely be wu. p and most of the nests are destroyed by cultivation. Quails will live with us if we do not have too much snow; deep snow soon destroys them.. They are not rustlers after feed, and if the ground is covered with deep snow they soon starve. If every county in the state had a few Chinean, Ringneek, or Mongolian pheasants, the state would soon have plenty of fine game birds. These birds increase very fast, are great rustlers, and will stand any Iowa winter. A few of these birds were brought into one of our western states a few years ago and now it is estimated that they have increased to millions. They are a beautiful bird to look at as well as a fine table bird. The English pheasant does well in most any part of the United States and are easily raised in confinement. The young birds have to be fed with care till they are old enough to eat grain. The best feed for any of the young pheasants till they are six weeks old is rank. It cauip him to think of the days when there was, in fact, a hot time in the old town. Attorney Sullivan of Algona called upon Mayor Nicholson a few days ago and informed him that he had been retained as counsel to get a settlement out of tho town in behalf of Lowell Poster, who got a broken nose by falling over a bobsled at Graham's implement house several months ago No definite answer was given him, and at a meeting of the council a committee was appointed to take tbe matter in hand. There are a number of things in connection with the case to look up Geo. E. Marble the first of this week received his letters patent from the U S. patent office at Washington on his patent egg case fastener. The patent is on a simple device for fastening the cover. Briefly described it is as follows: A bail at each end of the cover fits down over a clete the lower edge of which is rounding, and a little bolt drops down and prevents the bail from coming off. It is there is nothing order, and it will remarkably simple, got out of bring the that can no doubt inventor some money. The patent was granted Feb. 3, and since that date Mr. Marble's mail has been very heavy many making inquiries. Even the managers of the Omaha exposition heard of it and have asked that it he on exhibition. Mr. Marble will prob° ably make arrangements with a manufacturer to use the invention by pavine m rufiu°i f e l d C6l ' tain8Umf0rea0hca - ism. big holdings in Engle township in quite vigorous terms. He expressed, however, the sentiments of a thoughtful and growing part of the students of public questions. He said: "No man ought to own more land than he can farm himself with reasonable help and the application of the ordinary labor-saving machinery. One man owns more than three thousand acres of good land in this county and it is the most desolate, uuhomelike place to bo found anywhere. Poor houses, poor burns, no fences, no groves of young limber, no comforts anywhere. If I had my say about il I would compel him to sell his land or provide comfortable accommodations for his tenants. I don't believe it wise, neither do I believe it is right, that one man should bo permitted to block the avenues to prosperity in any such manner. The only safely wo have is in small holdings of land. The land is for the common people. It will be a misfortune to allow it to drift into tho hands of the few. Lot tho rich pile their gold and silver mountains high, let them cover the oceans with floating palaces, let them grind the mountains to powder in their search for the precious metals, but the land must be preserved a sacred trust for the masses, the common people. Take the land away from us aiid what is our condition? Simply that of tribute payers, slaves of the rich, dividing the fruits of our labor with the destroyer of our rightful heritage. These are matters for serious thought and while the day may be far in the distance yet the chains are as surely being forged that will bind us to our fate as the ever onward rush of time." Mr. Jones says the farm is an indica- of the owner, that weeds in the soil are the out-croppino- of weeds in the farmer's nature: "Many of our farmers have been very successful. Their homes and farms, as we pass them by, speak of this in no uncertain tones, you read it in their faces and their conversation, you see it in their well-tilled fields and mammoth barns, their happy, well dressed children, and ample, cleanly homes, there is no sign on the gate post, reading, this farm for sale, and it never will be for sale because it is • too valuable and too sacred a thing to pass to other hands. This pictures the other farm and is the index to the character of the man and the woman whose hands have fashioned it. It is the outward manifestation of their inner nature. Flowers bloom inside men's souls as well as outside. Pleasant homes make good boys and girls, a few choice plants in the window and a few good books in some convenient place to look at and read has started many a lad in the direction of honor and influence. Straws tell which way the wind blows. The homo is the index to the father and the mother ' nature, and as the father and mother is, so is the son and the daughter, and if the home is right the farm is right, and as your home and farm are right your neighbors will emulate your example and theirs will become right. Thistles, cockle bun- weeds of all description first take root in man's organization, the farm is the outward manifestation of the man's nature. Everyman is judged by the appearance of his work, thistles on his farm moan thistles in his heart and they stick out and prick you every time always and under all circumstances! I he reverse of this is a cosy, well kept home in a lot away from the barn and slock, a few flowers and a pretty little grass patch where the stock is not permitted. The farm well tilled, no bis weeds in the fence corners or in the cornfield, machinery stored away till its turn comes for use in the field A nice, well arranged grove of valuable timber planted in such a manner as to furnish the best protection from storms no long rows of trees with straggling brandies to sap the life out of the soil where the corn and wheat or other grain should grow, the horses and cattle fat and slick. This is the other picture and reveals the owner's inner nature. Thus are we all read and understood, man is leaving his foot prints to m ° Ve h6 In vigorous terms he arraigned the men who are gradually impoverish n| thesoi by poor farming: "The mn man man who takes anything without giving a just return is a barnacle and -A . •, barnacle and a leech As we study this land question, and as we see its burden of weeds; (I sneak now of the shiftless farmer) one-haU of the strength of the soil be ng used to Himnni'l-. n lr>f «f „-.• ,, & "°ou iu support a lot of mustard maggots.
