M»KiNLEY WILL ACT. There is every reason to believe that President McKinley will act with firmness when the time comes. 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 must 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 fight 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 mous abuse, but it has no authority to correct it. Congress cannot be made to see it and so neglects to correct it. WAll NEWS. The country is no nearer war than a week ago. 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, tt lies largely with Spain. 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 Gal linger 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 postoffice 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 carry- CttKOIT WHERE CHEDIT IS DUE. The State Register says: n,Sl na i, t0 f ?

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 Healey 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 accomplished before the Single board is appointed. To credit all the savings in institution rents. The Courier's attention is called to thefact 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 j?et 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 Estherville 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 on the bench in Iowa, some 19 cases out of 25 being aftirmed. Personally he is a genial man and is popular with the bar and the at 7 o'clock and conducted the regular service at his church, beginning at 7:30. How's that? THE MONTH'8-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 due to the attitude of the judiciary, who have constantly ruled against the commission and in favor of the railroads. ing mail and to put the postal system on a paying basis. The government is carrying circulars, sample copies, advertising matter, etc., at an expense of $43,000,000 a year and is getting 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 a pound, paying the railways 40 per cent, of that. Geo. E. Roberts writes at length management to the new 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, aback lash on the good work accomplished by the extra session and its successor. people. He is now qualified to do even better service on the bench than when first 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.

The following suggestions by Mrs. W. W. Anriis are to the point and well worthy of consideration. They are from her paper read at the farmers' institute. -s- -t- -s- Conversation is one of the essential elements of social success and that is one of the things we neglect. To use a common expression, we "talk shop." The crops, the stock, and the weather form the principal topics for the men, and tho poultry and the garden, the children, and tho weather, for the wommi. 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 devote to tho stock the women give to tho children, or tho last quilt pattern, while both vary tho talk somewhat by some neighborhood gossip. Now these people, I know them, you know them, but I need not fear giving offense for they are not the people who attend tho farmers' institute. I imag inc some city lady says with a sneer " that is just what I thought." But wait a mo- nent, my dear, substitute fancy work and tho latest fashion for tho 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. There seems to be a social line more or less distinct drawn between town and country. Lot mo, my country friends, tell you you are the ones who is most to blamo. 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, yon can dress respectably and the person who is so little and narrow minded that ho looks at the garment rather than tho character of tho man is beneath your notice three men at and 1S not the man vvnoso acquaintance you want to form. And possibly you are too careless about your personal appearance- look in tho glass tonight when you go home and see. It is not possible, nor would it be advisable for farmers to dress in the latest stylo, I doubt if it is for anyone, but I do think many of them could dress much neater and bettor than they do. ~T~ -T- -T- We come to the social life at its best upon the farm. There are the quiet afternoon chats between neighbors over the sewing or knitting when the real inner life speaks. Did you ever 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 tho 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 tho 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. Tho one drawback has been lack of room as wo mot at the different homes, so limiting the number and of necessity offending some. About 20, they were all called young ranging from 18 to —, well they wero all young, or young married people, joined 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.

Admis- CITY SCRAP NEXT MONDAY PEOSPEOT FOR A TAME ELECTION, Opposition In But Two Wards—Little Talk About Electric Lights or the City Library Tax. But very little excitement has attended the preliminaries to the city election which comes Monday. Even the electric light proposition has not heen 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 sion, adults 25 cents, children under 16, 15 cents. Come and ertjoy the evening. STOP SHIPPING LIQUOES. Tho Express Companies Elsewhere Have Shut Down-No Change at agreed upon unanimously, and has no opponent. In the Third ward two caucuses were held in the normal building at the same hour Friday evening. The republicans renominated P. L. Slagle and the democrats Walt. Stebbins. The ward is very close politically. Both candidates nre old residents and well known. In the Fourth ward M. B. Chapin was renominated without opposition in the republican caucus. J. F. Nicoulln has been named by petition. The republicans have a big majority in the ward and Mr. Chapin is spoken of by all as an attentive and efficient member. Mr. Nicoulin was an excellent member while on the council before. THE ELECTRIC LIGHT PROPOSAL. The proposition submitted by O. B. Durdall to the council is to put in 35 arc, 1200-candle-power lights at $4.50 a month each. They are to be kept 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. Orders at various points have been given to express agents not to deliver liquors hereafter. No such order has been received by the Algona agents. Webster City, however, is very dry. The Freeman reports: The express messenger came in from the south on the Northwestern yesterday morning and he was happy as a lark. The cause of his joy was from the fact that he had no beer or liquors to handle on this trip. This all came about through an order which was received Wednesday at the Webster City office, as well as every other express office in the state, from the American Express company's LlRtt.fln MM.t't.At'a A rrnnt Hff«7-\ IT J At 35 lights the yearly cost to the city 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 dynamo. Mayor Chrischilles wishes it understood that the council is not bound to this proposition in case granting a franchise is voted. He says the council holds that it will then be at liberty to contract as best it may for such number of lights at such cost as it sees fit, by granting a franchise if that is best or by private contract for lights if that is best. . fc headquarters.
