Until there is reason to believe otherwise everybody must commend him for hesitating to get us into war. No American citizen will for a moment put the cost of war up against national honor, and Spain touat be brought to account. It would be an act of despicable cowardice to allow Spain to blow up one of our vessels with impunity, or even for a money indemnity. But it will be as easy to flght when we are fully ready as it Is before, and until there is reasonable ground for suspecting that the administration Is planning for " peace at any price" it must be credited with a discretion and moderation that are as remarkable as they are admirable. As to Cuba it would probably have been better had President Cleveland made the same spirited declaration to Spain that he did to England in the Venezuelan affair. A bold front at the beginning would have saved all the subsequent trouble we have drifted into, as well as prevented the barbarities of Spanish warfare in Cuba. The United States might as well one time as another declare that it will interfere in all misunderstandings on this side of the Atlantic to the extent of seeing fair play and honorable warfare. But President Cleveland took the position that the Monroe doctrine did not apply in the Cuban struggle. This WAR NEWS. The country is no nearer war than a week Bgo. Congress will have the report of the Maine disaster early next week, then something definite will be done. If Spain is wise enough to accept the inevitable war will be averted. If not, war seems probable. It lies largely with Spain. CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE. The State Register says: Senator Funk is making his greatest and most helpful battle for the tax payers of Iowa in his unswerving contest for the enactment of the board of control bill, which will be certain to save all the cost of this session of the legislature during every biennial period the board of control law remains upon the statutes of Iowa. THE UPPER DBS MOINES is glad to have Senator Funk receive due recognition. He has been the backbone of the reform movement in the last and present legislatures as Senator Healey has been the spokesman. We are glad the two have won out in the senate regardless of the merits of the board of control measure. Aside from the compliment to Senator Funk, however, the Register's statement cannot be fully endorsed. There is no doubt that some leaks In each of the state institutions will be plugged, but they would have been plugged under any system of management. The Hoaley investigation, which was not primarily gotten up in the interests of any special plan of management, would have borne fruits. In fact many salaries were cutdown during the extra session, without either an investigating committee or a single board. It seems likely that the support fund of the asylums can be permanently lowered without injury, but this likewise can in no way bo credited to a single board management. In fact it will bo accom- rents. The Courier's attention is called to the fact that nearly every democrat in congress voted against the Loud bill, which would have put the postal service on a paying basis. The Cleveland administration turned over a deficit in nearly every department, and McKinley has gone resolutely at it to get us back on a cash basis. The Hull Index says Judge Thomas is so able on the bench that the district will not want to spare him for congress. The Sheldon Mail says in reply: " Are not wise and capable men and those without blemish as much needed in congress as elsewhere? The bench does not deserve all the good men, and we have an impression that a few additions to the collection of good men in congress would be very helpful to that body and to the country. It should not be urged against Judge Thomas that he is too able and too fit a man to represent the Eleventh district in congress. An attempt to promote somebody else's ambition in that way might give the Storm Lake jurist a bigger boost than would otherwise attend his candidacy. It occasionally happens that our best men are sent to congress." Congressman Curtis of Clinton says he will not bo a candidate for renomina- tion. The Esthervilie Republican says: Judge Quarton will be a candidate for re- nomination at the coming judicial convention. Judge Quarton is certainly entitled to another term. He is a close student of the law and has had fewer reversals in the supremo court in proportion to the cases appealed than any other district judge now at 7 o'clock and conducted the regular service at his church, beginning at 7:30. How's that? THE MONTH'S'MAGAZINES. Professor Henry C. Adams opens the April Atlantic with a"'timely and forcible paper dealing with the United States international commerce commission, under the title of "A Decade of Federal Railway Regulation." He shows that all governments must and do regulate railway management, and he details the aims and methods of the interstate commission, what they were expected to accomplish^ what they have accomplished, and wherein they have failed. He points out that their failures have been largely duo to the attitude of the judiciary, who have constantly ruled against the commission and in favor of the railroads. left this country with no greater interest in the contest than any other civilized nation has. It is simply a question whether the barbarities practised in Cuba are such that the civilized world should interfere. Public sentiment in this country is satisfied on this point. No one can read the speeches of Senators Proctor and Gallinger and remain in doubt. Entirely aside from the Monroe doctrine the United States should recognize 'the independence of Cuba and put an end to the war. Our obligation is plain. There is every reason to belieye that President McKinley recognizes the demands the people are making upon him, and that • he will do his whole duty. THE POSTAL DEFICIT. The general increase in postofflce box rentals is undoubtedly part of a plan to make up the yearly deficit in postal revenues. It is a small tax, but it will be widely felt. It will serve more than any other exaction to call attention to the recent attempt in congress to equalize the expense of carrying mail and to put the postal system on a paying basis. The government is carrying circulars, sample copies, advertising matter, etc., at nn expense of $43,000,000 a' year and is petting in postage for it only $3,000,000 a year. What is known as the Loud bill was intended to correct this glaring injustice, but it was voted down in the house of representatives. The opponents of the bill were successful mainly because they were able to show that the railways were being paid an exorbitant rate for carrying the mails, and that the yearly deficit was due to this cause rather than to too cheap postage. They showed that the railways are getting eight cents a pound for carrying mail where express companies render equal service for one cent n pound, paying the railways 40 per cent, of that. Geo. E. Roberts writes at length from ™ ' ' plished before the dingle board is appointed. To credit all the savings in institution management to the now plan is manifestly unfair, when in fact all the credit belongs to the last and the present general assemblies. All of the benefits of the Healey investigation and of the actions of both legislative bodies would have accrued to the taxpayers exactly the same had no change whatever been made. Not only that, but it is altogether probable that had the state provided for a periodical examination of the state institutions such as banks, insurance companies, etc., are subjected to, and left the boards of trustees for each institution it would have saved all it will save, have had as good management at less expense, and have been freed from the danger of a big political machine which is the real danger with a single board. The movement out of which the single board of control idea has come has been a splendid thing for Iowa. Its benefits are entirely independent of the board of control. In fact it remains to be proved that the single board will not be a sort of anti-climax, a back lash on the good work accomplished by the extra session and its successor. on the bench in Iowa, some 19 cases out of 25 being affirmed. Personally he is a genial man and is popular with the bar and the people. He is now qualified to do even better service on the bench than whon iirst elected. The osteopaths are to be allowed to practice in Iowa. They believe that by stretching people's joints all diseases can bo cured. It is expected that the report of the commission on the Maine disaster will bo made tomorrow. It will show that the vessel was blown up from the outside. The week. legislature will adjourn in IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. City has voted a $100 library BOARD OF CONTROL ADOPTED. The house passed the board of control bill yesterday by a vote of 71 to 20. The 20 were all republicans. The bill is amended to give the new board supervisory control of expenditures in the state educational institutions, but leaves the regents and trustees as at present to manage the schools. The amendment will probably be accepted by the senate. NEWS AND COMMENT. The Odebolt Chronicle takes no stock in F. H.

The following suggestions by Mrs. W. W. Annis are to the point and well worthy of consideration. They are from her paper read at the farmers' institute. -f- •*- -f- Conversation is one of the essential elements of social success and that is one of the things wo neglect. To use a common expression, we " talk shop." The crops, the stock, and the weather form the principal topics for the men, and the poultry and the garden, the children, and the weather, for the woman. I have heard two men discuss the weather past, present, and future for nearly half a day and still seem to have an inexhaustible store of information to draw upon. The time the men devolo to the stock the women give to the children, or the last quilt pattern, while both vary the talk somewhat by some neighborhood gossip. Now these people, I know them, you know them, but I need not four giving offense for they are not the people who attend the farmers' institute. I imag Ine some city lady says with a sneer "that is just what I thought." But wait a mo- nont, my dear, substitute fancy work and the latest fashion for the poultry and garden and where do you differ. Your gossip may be a little more highly seasoned than your country friends, for you probably hear much worse and a great deal more of it. -f- -i- 4- Thore seems to be a social line more or less distinct drawn between town and country. Let mo, my country friends, tell you you are the ones who is most to blame. But you say you can't find time, and besides you can't dress well enough and they ridi- culo;your clothes/ You can make time if you will, you can dress respectably and the person who is so little and narrow minded that he looks at the garment rather than the character of the man is beneath your notice and is not the man whose acquaintance you want to form. And possibly you are too careless about your personal appearance- look in the glass tonight when you go home and see. It is not possible, nor would it be advisable for farmers to dress in the latest style, I doubt if it is for anyone, but I do think many of them could dress much neater and bettor than they do. when the refined and artistic in every character will find expression in its surroundings, when good company, good music, good literature will be In every home, when farm work will be no longer drudgery, but a measure to gratify the desires of progressive life, when all that goes to make up the higher living will be of more importance than dollars and cents, when real worth will discount bank stock, when every home shall be an ideal home and a farmer's life the ideal life.

But very little excitement has attended the preliminaries to the city election which comes Monday. Even the electric light proposition has not been much discussed. In two wards there is no opposition to the old councilmen. In the Third and Fourth there is a contest, but of a very mild character considering last year's uprising. It is likely that the electric light franchise will not be voted. Many favor having the city put in its own lighting plant, and many think the Durdall proposal, while furnishing cheap lights, includes too big a yearly expense to the city. There has been no discussion of the library'tax, but many think it will carry. It is a small matter, and everybody wants to give Mr. McElroy a chance to develop the library. THE WARD CAUCUSES. In the First ward there was no opposition to F. H. Vesper, who wasrenomi- nated unanimously. There is no opposing candidate. In the Second ward Dr. Morse was reading, making a varied and pleasing program. Endorsed and commended by all lovers of music, the clergy, the press and the general public. Admission, adults 25 cents, children under 16, 15 cents. Come and enjoy the evening. STOP SHIPPING LIQUOKS.

There are the quiet afternoon chtits between neighbors over the sewing or knitting when the real inner life speaks. Did you over notice how close is the tie between congenial neighbors in the country? It seldom grows weaker and is rarely broken. The men look over each others stock and ask each others advice or opinion, and between times touch upon the weightier questions of the day. At other times the whole family goes to spend the evening, and the hours fairly fly while games are played, songs are sung, and stories told. Then there are evening gatherings of old and young at parties, socials, debates, and occasionally the old-time spelling school. For the young people are the sleigh rides, coasting parties, taffy pulls. While for summer are reserved the baseball games, picnics, and lawn parties. One question of social entertainment has been solved quite satisfactorily in our township. Of course it is not a perfect solution, but two winters have been made less lonely and some real good has been do- rived, The one drawback has been lack of room as we mot at the different homes, so limiting the number and of necessity offending some.

It had no avowed reason for ex isting, only it was to meet every two weeks on Wednesday evening. A few minutes was given to current events, some author was discussed and selections from his work, or simply a miscellaneous program. Some original work was done and wo oven aspired to a serial story, each chapter writ- ton by a different member of the club, This proved quite an attraction. These gatherings wore very informal, simple refreshments were served and part of the evening was spent in social talk and many merry laughs and jests.

Smith's Remarkable Score with a Spi-lugfleld Blflle. Capt. Will F. Smith, inspector of small arms practice for the Fourth regiment, I. N.

He succeeded in making a "possible" at 500 yards, and came within one point of making what is known as a "double possible." The remarkable and very unusual thing in regard to the long range score is that out of the last ten shots nine bullseyes were made, seven of them being in consecutive order When asked how. ho did this kind of shooting, Capt. Smith said to a reporter for the Webster City Tribune "I don't know how to explain it to a newspaper reporter who does not know anyting about shooting. If I was to say that these results were acco,np° 1 shod by long and careful practice and study it might be the best explanation I could make to you. No, I cannot call it a phenomenal score; but if that third shot from the end had been a five, then, perhaps it might be entitled to a place under that distinction.

They are to be kept t ™ burning until midnight and be run on what is known as the moonlight schedule, that is they will not be lighted on moonlight nights. All lights the city takes over 35 will cost $4 each a month. At 35 lights the yearly cost to the citv will be $1,884, and 40 lights will cost $2,124. Mr. Durdall says he will also if ho gets assurances of 200 commercial lights put in boiler and engine equal to running a 300 light incandescent dv- namo.
