Randall will act ascor- resfcondentfor THE UPPER DBS MOINES during the service of Company F. Be^ eldes his experience In local newspaper work Lieut. Randall has been the Algona correspondent for the Des Moines Capital, and Is a good news gatherer and spicy writer. He will keep our readers fully Informed of what is going on and of how our boys fare, All who feel a special interest In our company will do well to look for his letters. DolHver's Endorsement. The announcement of Congressman Dolliver's candidacy to succeed himself, made by thl Fort Dodge Messenger, has been generally commented on by the papers of the district the past week. Without a single exception that we have npticed, all agree that he will be renominated without opposition when the convention meets. Rumors have been circulated from time to time of disaffection in various localities, but .from some of them at least the papers are very outspoken for Dolliver, and from none of them is there any announcement of opposition. It would not be at all to be wondered at if following a complete change in the post- offices of the district, Mr. Dollivor with the rest of the congressmen should suffer. Appointing postmasters is the most thankless as well as the most dangerous political duty a congressman meets. Old or young, experienced or inexperienced, no man has yet gotten into congress with genius equal to securing unanimous approval of his distribution of postofflces. Senator Allison in Dubuque, -where the duty falls on him, has as severe trials as any man on the Iowa delegation, while Col. Henderson, the senior member among the congressmen, is in sore straits in important and influential parts of his district. Every method imaginable has been tried. Where elections have been held the results have given as little satisfaction as appointments by petition, and loss than outright appointments at the congressman's own suggestion. In fact it may be stated generally that in Iowa, where the congressmen have early settled all the appointments and announced them, they have fared better than where they have waited for any kind of contest between applicants and their supporters. This was Mr. Dolliver's policy in the main, and he probably has as little opposition as any one of the Iowa congressmen. Turning from these local features of his candidacy to his public career, the past two years have undoubtedly strengthened Mr. Dolliver's hold on his constituency. He has grown in influence in congress and has secured wider recognition. In the recent crisis he has represented the patriotic impulses of the state, while fully sustaining President McKinley, and by the contrast between his course and that of such men as Foraker and Mason shown his ability to hold himself together in times of excitement. On the stump he has grown in breadth and power. It is not an idle compliment to say that as much as any other man he has given the Iowa congressional delegation the reputation at Washington of being as able as any that has ever sat in the capitol. And it is part of the current political gossip of the state that he is generally regarded as a successor to either Gear or Allison in the United States senate, when age bus incapacitated these distinguished members. With all his ambition in the broader fields of public service Mr. Dolliver has not forgotten the minor duties of bis position, and this again has made him strong with the people, who like to join with pride in his larger achievements the pleasing confidence that their individual affairs will not be neglected. No one writes to him about any matter whatever without receiving a prompt reply, and he has attended to the minor details, which make him the especial representative of his district, with promptness and success. We have never had a congressman who has been more approachable, more prompt, or more successful in dealing with the small things that are continually calling for congressional attention. The tendency to retain men of ability and experience in the public service has been marked in late years, It will Toe especially strong'in the present crisis, when everybody appreciates how much the qualities of ability and experience are needed. It is not at all unlikely voiced the sentiment of the people of the district, and the Tribune desires to ffo on record as being the first to second the nomination for Hamilton county—his nearest neighbor and his staunchest friend." Bernard Murphy of the Vinton Eagle is mentioned for grand chancellor of the Knights of Pythias of the state. Bernard exemplifies in his daily walk all that Damon and Pythias, or Phintias as he is given in the classical dictionaries, stand for to posterity, and he would honor the office. The Nevada Representative says of the debate in congress: Aside from the question of national policy there was involved in the Cuban discussion during the week the direct issue whether Joseph B. Foraker and Billy Mason with the aid, counsel and support of Billy Bryan, should run away with the republican party. They did not, Geo. E. Roberts has left Washington on a business trip to New Orleans, and Denver. He will probably visit Helena, Deadwood and Salt Lake City before his return, which will be via Fort Dodge. Mr. M. D. O'Connell also expects to be in Fort Dodge about May 1 on a short visit. Burrell says it makes hl»n feel mad to think about the toadying to Eulnlie and Veragua'at the World's Fair. The duke's sole business, he says, "Was raising bulls for the arena, but wo treated him as if he were a god. If it were to do over again, we'd add to that word god tinker's dam, perhaps," Al. Adams says he "can see no reason why Mr. Dolliver should not be his own successor till there Is a vacancy for him in the United States senate. He has made mistakes in postoffice appointments no doubt, and wo never heard of a congressman who had not, but in his work in congress he has made fewer mistakes than the average, and there-can bo no party reasons for his not being returned." The Swea City Herald hits the nail squarely on the head: "The Algona Courier says that Horace Mann, if nominated and elected, ' will give this district honest and incorruptible representation. 1 That's nothing. What the people want to know is how he would dispose of the postofflces." What would Horace do with the postofflces? That is the question. Al. Adams in the Humboldt Independent says: "Horace Mann, the good- natured populist of Kossuth county, is working up his chances as a candidate for congress on the mongrel ticket this fall. By all means he should have it. It is a pretty plaything and Horace could make more noise with it than Jimmy Ryan." We doubt if Al. is correct. In a competition of the kind he suggests we have confidence that James could hold his ovvn. The Courier has thus far given only a left-handed endorsement to Mr. Mann's candidacy. Is is really holding back With a view to getting Mr. Ryan in the field? It must remember that Kossuth cannot possibly win with two candidates. Let it state who it is for. too was joined in the holy bonds of wedlock. A paper there says the strong past tense of mash Is now mush. Emtnetsburg Tribune: Miss Kate Wernert of Algona arrived in the city Wednesday for a visit among her old friends. Miss Wernert has fully fecov- ered from her severe illness of typhoid fever. Rev. Mary A. Safford, pastor of the First Unitarian church of Sioux City, will deliver an address at the meeting of the Iowa Liberal Congress of Relig- t rk •% 4 « 1» —. 1~ .»1 J _ A f* . Jt T-» * 4 * Q. ion, to be held at Cedar 26-28. Rapids April Erametsburg Reporter: Mrs. W. B. Quarton, wife of Judge Quarton of Algona, passed through here Monday morning enroute for her home. She spent Sunday with the judge at Estherville. The Northern Iowa Veterans' association will hold its annual meeting at Clear Lake on June 7, 8 and 9. The program will be announced shortly. All veterans should bear the date in mind. The Ruthyen Free Press in Palo Alto county, speakingof the Democrat's statement that it will take more than seeds to re-elect Dolliver, says: That is no dream. But deeds are more powerful than seeds and good deeds are the seeds that will grow into the votes that BOYS OFF FOR THE WAR, BEOALLS SIMI1AB SCENES OF '61, An Immense Crowd Out to See Them Off Yesterday — A Fine-looking l;ot of Soldiers. Company F started for the front yesterday at 11:45 o'clock, amidst cheers and flying banners with the best wishes and God speeds of thousands gathered in their honor. Tears mingled with the greetings as fathers and mothers of other boys remembered the days of '61, and as fathers and mothers, and sisters and brothers, and wives and sweethearts of these boys embraced them in that uncertain farewell that belongs to war. But the cheers, and the band music, and the whistling engines, and the salute of the grand army cannon submerged the grief, and with brave faces and stout hearts Kossuth's contribution to the cause of the old flag waved their caps in farewell salute. The bright sun of a beautiful April The Port Dodge Post gives heed to the rumors that Horace Mann is to be Mr. Dolliver's competitor and adds: "TheAl- gona UPPEH DES MOINES never loses a chance to present J. J. Ryan's name for anything in sight and hints that he may be in the race." In this instance THE UPPEU DBS MOINES, although it has been Mr. Ryan's steady champion, favors Mr. Mann. The Iowa supreme court has made a sensible ruling. It holds that hereafter when insanity is urged as a defense in a criminal case a special trial for insanity may immediately be ordered. If a jury of medical experts finds that the defendant is really insane the criminal trial will ationce be dropped. But this shall by no means give the defendant his liberty. On the contrary, he shall be sent to the ward for crim inal insane at the penitentiary for an indefinite time. If the investigation of the experts, on the other hand, develops the fact that the defendant is sane, then the trial under the original indictment will be resumed, with the insanity dodge eliminated from the defense. The Jefferson Bee says: " What the people want is to be ably represented, and they know that Mr. Dolliver's ability and his growing influence in the councils of the nation reflect more credit on the Tenth Iowa district than any new man could hope to do for many years to come—if ever." The Humboldt Republican has a column and a half on Dolliver. The gist of it is: "We believe the Tenth district with substantial unanimity desires Mr. Dolliver's return." The Week's War News. S PAIN officially declared war Sunday. The war bulletin is long and covers many points. Spain reserves the right to fit out privateers to prey on American commerce. Congress on Monday passed a resolution declaring war, at President McKinley's suggestion. An official declaration is notice to all neutral powers. American war vessels had picked up nine Spanish merchant and freight boats this morning. One is valued at $600,000. Secretary Sherman resigned Monday morning. Old age and ill health urged the step. Assistant Secretary Day succeeds him. Postmaster General Gary has resigned on account of ill, health, and Secretary of the Navy Long will also resign. Assistant Secretary of the Navy Roosevelt will resign to go to the war as colonel of a cowboy regiment. Secretary Alger issued a call to the states for troops Monday. Iowa is asked for three regiments of infantry and two light batteries. The total call is for 125,000. The United States fleet has blockaded Havana harbor. The guns from Morro Castle were fired on the fleet, but without effect. The United States fleet at Hong Kong, China; will move at once on the Phillippine islands, Spain's possession near Australia. The Cuban insurgents are being armed and organized for efficient service. President McKinley has issued a proclamation allowing Spanish boats that sailed for our ports before April-21 to get out gracefully. The free-silver congressmen will flght the increase of bonds for the war. It is likely that the volunteers will be massed at Chickamauga soon " for army drill. Gov. Shaw issues a call for more volunteers. every member of the Iowa delegation,, who is a candidate, will be re- nominated. It is certain that most of them will be, and of that number it is a congratulation that Mr. Dol* liver will be one. QQMM1NT, IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD, Ames Times: Consul Hanna was a Methodist preacher in Iowa and not lacking in bravery. The Odd Fellows will celebrate at Estherville, April 26. They are planning on a big time. Clear Lake has its committees already appointed for a Fourth of July celebration. Who is going to celebrate in Kossuth? Miss Grace Gilchrist has an offer of a position in the Fonda schools at an advance over her present salary, the Pocahontas Record says. Louis Eiohenrodt, Algona's old-time cigar maker, has sold out at Clarion and has gone to Dows. L. F. Hudson sold to Louie, and is back in Algona. will be needed to re-elect Dolliver. Dolliver's official record's all right even if he could not furnish everyone with a postoffice. West Bend Journal: Horace Mann of Kossuth county wants the democratic nomination for congress against J. P. Dolliver. We are afraid Mr. Mann will be a considerably older man before he downs J. P. The Mirror notes that J. Hodgman has moved from Garner to Clear Lake. The Garner Signal says: "What is Garner's loss is Clear Lake's gain." Where does Algona come in? Algona has a claim on Jay. The Armstrong Journal offers another congressional suggestion: Horace Mann of Algona is a candidate for the democratic congressional, nomination in this district. J. B. Romans of Denison will probably also be a candidate. Spencer Reporter: The Reporter home enjoyed a pleasant visit today (Thursday) from N. Spencer, superintendent of the Algona public schools. Mr. Spencer was enroute to the meeting of the Northwestern Iowa Teachers' association, held at Sioux City, before which body he reads a paper on "The True Teacher." Mr. Spencer is one of the foremost educators of north central Iowa and is doing excellent work in his present field. Armstrong Journal: Algona has been afflicted with blue sky swindlers and forgers for some time, but Spirit Lake is infected with what is more detrimental—cranks. They cost the taxpayers more than criminals and are the cause of more troublein the community where they reside. They have the same exalted idea of their own worth, ability and. importance as the young emperor of Germany. They do not believe in majority rule and seem to have an idea they were placed on earth to dictate to and govern their neighbors. Personal liberty is foreign to their ideas of government. The ruination of Arnolds Park and Spirit Lake as a summer resort by these people Is an outrage and should not be tolerated. morning never shone upon a braver sight. The time set for the departure had been originally 10:30 o'clock, and in the early morning the boys were gathered in martial array on the public square. But the train from the west bearing Company K of Emmetsburg was late, which gave an added hour for preparation. The veterans of the grand army, the sons of veterans, and civic organizations of horsemen, wheelmen, fire company, etc., were at the Thorington street crossing when the Milwaukee pulled in and unloaded Company K, and gave the visitors a royal salute. The band led the procession up Thorington to State, where the school children, waving banners, and Company F joined, and all moved to the North western depot, where the special train was in waiting. It was a magnificent parade. Every business house was closed and bunting and flags lined the streets. The people, men women, and children filled every available avenue, and the marshals with difficulty opened a passage way for the procession. Thehalf hour while the baggage was being loaded was one of such thronging about the cars, such crowding and handshaking and such solemnity in its way, that it will not soon be forgotten. It seemed like a Fourth of July, but behind it all no one could forget that war is war, and that a year or a month or a week might change all the cheering into lamentation. With several, premonitory whistles of the engine, a backward rush on the crowded platform, a shot from the grand army cannon, a waving of hats, and a cheer along the line, the train slowly pulled out for Des Moines, and at 5 o'clock the boys had their tents pitched on the state fair grounds, where they will organize into regiments. kept themselves in readiness for departure on short notice. But no orders came, and they had time to perfect all arrangements, secure provisions for two days' rations, and make ready generally. Company F Notes. Sergeant M. J. -Walsh has notified the boys that he will join them at Des Moines. He has been at Livingston, Montana, for some months, but has held his place in the company. He was telegraphed to as soon as the company was called. He is one of the expert rifle men of the state, and an all- around good soldier. Jess O. Stephenson, son of the Lotts Creek early settler, came from Milford to join the company, but did not go. He has been in the drug store. Ellison Blackford and Chns. Bossing- hara were in Appleton, Minn. Both have been members of the company and came home at once, but Mr. Bos- sinffham failed to pass the physical examination. It was a great disappointment to him. The supply of uniforms gave out before all the boys were accoutred, and some of them left in their store clothes. Chas. E. Cohenour was first -lieutenant when he left the company, and a very popular officer. He rigged up his private suit of lieutenant's regimentals and wore them in the ranks as a high private. He will be a good soldier. Photographer Peterson got a number of good views of the company in line. Dr. Morse expects a Dr. Hauser from Sibley to come to Algona and take his practice. Two weeks ago Fred. Wehler, Bowyer's jeweler, said jokingly that he would give Dr. Morse a handsome silver shaving mug if he went to war. He was as good as his word and handsomely engrayed it besides. Mrs. Dr. Morse accompanied her husband to Des Moines and will visit in the city as long as he is there. Compensation of Company F. Capt. Cooke gets $1,800 a year, Lieut. Ward $1,500, and Lieut. Randall $1,400. These officers provide their own mess and dress. The sergeants get $24 a month and the privates $13 a month and are clothed and fed bv the government. Hospital Steward Adams and Assistant Raymond get $45 a month and board. Surgeon Morse gets a captain's pay. Company K. The Emmetsburg boys were a good looking company as they marched through town. Capt. W. E. G. Saunders was along and is appointed to a regimental position. He is the owner of the old Blairgowrie; farm. L. H. Mayne was also in the service. Capt. Refsell is a good soldier and one of the heutenan.ts is a son of W. G. Henry. The Emmetsburg and Algona boys will be true soldiers if they are put into hard service. A New Company In Algona. Company F was not fairly off until steps had been taken to get up a second company for the war. It may not be called but it will be ready. If possible it will be recognized by the state and get uniforms and guns at once. The following had agreed to enlist last evening: M. P. Haggard, C. T. Chubb, H. D. Hednck, F. M. Curtiss, C.

The Cherry sisters have sued the Des Moines Leader for $15,000 damages for republishing what Billy Hamilton said about them at Odebolt. This is the item they complain of, with what justice those who saw them in Algona can judge: " Effie is an old jade of 50 summers, Jessie a frisky filly of 40, and Addle, the star of the family, a capering monstrosity of 35. Their long, skinny arms, equipped with talons at the extremities, swing mechanically and anon were waved frantically at the suffering audience. The lines of their rancid features opened like caverns and sounds like the wailing of damned souls issued therefrom. Th,ey pranced around the stage with a motion that) suggested a cross bet wen the danse du dentre and a fox trap, strange creatures with painted faces and a hideous mein. Erne is spavined, Addle is knock-kneed —s spavined, Addle is knook^kneed an4 string-halt, and Jessie, the only pne wbo showed her stockings, has legs without oajves, as plaesio in their out lines aj the curves of ft Busy Days of Preparation. Col. Cooke got his orders Saturday to act as captain of the company. . He accepted at once and has been in active command. He is one of the best posted men among the Iowa National Guards, and if the boys see active service will be the officer they need, cool, well informed, and determined. He at once ordered the company to undergo physical examination and Surgeon Morse was during Sunday and Monday busy. The test for a soldier is a weight of not less than 128 nor more than 190 stripped, Lieut. Ward fell under the necessary weight, but Adjt. Gen. Byers telegraphed from Des Moines to allow him to come to the state camp for further examination. The height must be at least five feet and four inches, and all measurements must be in proportion to the height. Many of the applicants were unable to secure favorable reports. Of those passed by the surgeon only such could be taken now as had had previous military drill, The remainder go on what is the reserve list, to be called on to fill vacancies as they occur. The reserves may or way not be called on, but they are enliste^ and are subject to duty, Sunday was spent in preparation, and in drill. Monday morning the boys responded, to bugle oajl a t 7 o'clock and Emmetsburg Democrat: Consul Phil Hanna of Kossuth predicted a hot time when he started for San Juan, Porto Rico. He is having it. A short time ago he had to fly and seek relief on a British steamer.

Hanna's departure from San Juan created more excitement than all the war cables Food prices on the island of Porto Rico have advanced 100 per cent., and in consequence there has been a serious demonstration in the interior. Two battalions have been sent from Havana to re-inforce the Porto Rico garrison besides a company of artillery from Madrid. ' J. B. JONES WINS OUT, The Law Suits at Des Moines Pall Throueu-Bulldlng an Electric Car Line. Some time ago THE UPPER DES MOINES noted a big judgment against J. B. Jones. An appeal was taken to the supreme court, and while that has been pending the whole matter has been quashed, Mr. Jones paying no part of the claims, and very little in costs. Mr. Jones is now associated with Simon Cassady and H. H. Polk in putting a street oar line to Valley Junction. It will run through the ground Jones & Smith bought for a city cemetery and make it very valuable. We are glad to learn that Mr. Jones is coming out of the recent panicky times on his feet. 0EO- B, OLQTTD IS DEAD. Word came to Rev. D. M. Yetter on Friday that Lawyer Ripley's son ol Garner had died in the Klondike. He is the second to die of the party that M. E. Schleichei — J. M. Cowan's son-in- law— went with. He was 19 years of age and was a member of the same division that Mr. Schleicher was with. He was not very robust, but no one anticipated such an untimely end. One member of the party writes back a story of great hardship, his letters appearing in the Britt News. They will be of local interest: SHEEP'S CAMP, Alaska, March 27.— I will write a few lines today, and expect it will be my last for a while. Dogs are no good; won't eat, get sick, a distemper sets them back, snow freezes in their feet, and they soon tucker out. I hauled three loads on my sled; got too fat for my job and hired it pulled to Canyou City, nine miles from Dyea; it cost one cent a pound. Bought a small mule for $125— $11 would be a good price in Britt. We hauled our goods to Sheep's camp. It took four days for five miles through a narrow canyon, through a roaring torrent of water, up hill most of the way, and blockades every half mile. It is wonderful how people will work. It is so warm that the people sweat. Poor sleighing. We freighted from Dyea on wagons, and from Canyon City to Sheep's Camp on sleds, the canyon being too narrow for wngons. Sold the mule for $90; it was a good deal. I tried to haul 100 pounds of baggage up the scales; I pulled, hauled, and clawed up to within half a mile of the top; I had no creepers on my feet and my sled would pull me back. I slid down one hill about 40 rods, hanging to my sled. That was enough. I unloaded, jumped on my sled, and let 'er go for three miles at about a mile a second, I think. Freight is piled up everywhere and no one steals it. I wont up again this forenoon, and it is all a man can do. I can pack better than I can haul a sled. Fifty pounds is a good load. We get our freight up to the summit and then we pull up with a block and tackle. I bought a pair of creepers for $3 which would not cost 20 cents in Britt; horse- shoeing, $5 for four shoes; 50 cents an hour for labor; $1.50 a day for board. Lots of men are hunting for work. A man might as well be in purgatory as to be broke here. Tents and temporary log huts are all we have to live in. It isn't as cold here today ns it was in Britt when I left there. ' There is not much sickness, for so many people and considering how they work and sleep on the damp ground. We have all had colds— something like distemper. We don't know just when we will reach the summit. Duty on dogs is $3; Alaskan dogs, $2. It averages $30 per man for his outfit. Ham and eggs, 75 cents; small meals, 50 cents; lodging 50 cents; if you furnish your own bed clothing, 25 cents. Lots of people are selling their outfits. Everything connected with the trip is expensive. Another letter dated Sheep's Camp, April 1, is as follows: One of our boys, Al. Shuler of Garner, died of spinal menengitis. He died in 36 hours. He was getting up wood and overworked himself; caught a slight cold and had a high fever; he went to the hospital on the 30th at 5:20 p. m. and on the 31st at 3:40 p. m he died. He had a pain In his knee and could not stand upon it. In an hour he had a pain in his head and in the back of Ins neck, with stomach pains. Then he commenced to talk foolishly and soon_went out of his head. It is a very unhealthy spot. We all have colds and slight pains, with dvs- entary. Thank God we will get out of here by the 3d of April. The boys took bnuler to Dyea, and I expect they will bury him in the snow and ice. If they can find a way to send him home thev will do so.
