tJPPEft DES MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29, 1898. TBAlt. • BT INOMAM A WARREN. The liatest War News. Shaffter's army landed near Santiago without incident. Rooseoelt's rough riders were caught in an ambush later and only brilliant fighting saved them. Sixteen were killed and 60 wounded. A big battle is likely today. The Spaniards are strongly intrenched and fight desperately. President McKinley had decided to send a fleet to ravage the coastof Spain. It will start next week. Gen. Merritt starts today for Manila. He will arrive with the troops in about three weeks. Judge Thomas "Wins. Judge Lot Thomas was nominated last Thursday for congress to succeed Geo. D. Perkins, on the 217th ballot of the convention convened at LeMars. On the opening ballot Mr. Perkins had 68 of the 62 votes necessary to a nomination, and Judge Thomas 30. Brown of O'Brien and Cole of Sioux divided the remainder. The Perkins vote fell off steadily, until on the 187th ballot it was down to 42. At this point a few votes were cast for Isaac Struble, Mr. Perkins' opponent of long standing. Judge Ellwood of Sac county had before been vigorously boomed, but failed to show staying qualities. On the 210th ballot the Struble movement was important enough to force a crisis. An adjournment was secured on the 213th ballot from 10 o'clock in the morning until 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Three ballots after the convention met again were without results. On the fourth the Perkins forces went to Thomas, and he was nominated by a vote of 98, Struble having 16, Perkins four, and Brown five. There will be general regret that Judge Thomas is to leave the bench. He has had an exceptional career as district judge. He will be an able, clear-headed, and independent congressman, and his influence at Washington will be on the right side. Everybody in this part of his judicial district will congratulate him on the honorable recognition that has been given him, and will wish him a pleasant and profitable two years at Washington. A Carious Situation. On the heels of Judge Thomas' nomination for congress someone has hunted up the following clause from Section 5, Article 5 of the constitution of Iowa: " The judge of the district court shall hold his office for the term of four years or until his successor shall have been elected and qualified; and shall he ineligible to any other office except that of supreme, judge during the term for which he was elected." It is claimed on the strength of this that the judge is ineligible to congress, and as his term as judge began last January he will be ineligible for some time to come. The immediate effect of raising this question will be, undoubtedly, to delay Judge Thomas' resignation from the bench, and to do away with the immediate necessity of nominating a successor. It bad been considered that two candidates be named at Spirit Lake tomorrow instead of one. All the convention will now do will be to name a successor to Judge Quarton, who will be Judge Quarton by acclamation. The merits of the matter of Judge Thomas' eligibility are being widely discussed. It is generally thought, however, that he is eligible. The State Register points out that Judge Reed of Council Bluffs went to con grass while still on the bench, and also that in a similar case from Illinois congress held expressly that the state constitution could not determine the eligibility of citizens to United States positions. NEWS AND COMMENT. Geo. L. Finn has been named to run against Pete Hepburn in the Eighth. 'Finn used to be a quasi-republican senator in the legislature. He is anything for Finn. Geo. E. Roberts, director of the mint, is home in Fort Dodge seriously ill. He took a severe cold in Washington and a low malarial attack has followed. All Iowa will wish him speedy recovery. Hancock county republicans are going to submit it to the voters whether to continue the primary system of nominating or not. They have the straight out primary. Burt will use the bob tail primary in ' deciding on candidates for county office this fall. Other towns and townships will doubtless do likewise. It is a good plan. Palo Alto republicans adopted resolutions strongly endorsing Congressman Dolliver and instructing their delegates to support him. Every county in the district has done the same. In Hamilton county, where a bitter postofflce fight is in progress at Webster City, the Hunter and Chase combination has beaten the Hellen-Kamrar forces. Chase heads toe judicial delegation, and Hunter is on the congressional, while John T. Drug, Tenth district commltteeman, is chairman pf the state delegation. JI THIS NEISHBOBHOOD. . JJuinUoldt is to have a big oelebra- & handsome park, has lately launched a small steamer upon the river, which makes an additional attraction. Frank E. Allen, the Estherville banker, has been operated on in Chicago for ulcer of the stomach. He is very weak. David Cady and wife of Lu Verne have been married in Humboldt by 'Squire Bicknell. Thus ends their big divorce suit. The Livermore Gazette says: Mrs. B. W. Devine and son returned last Friday night from California, where they have been for about a year. Estherville Vindicator: Rev. F. E. Day and wife will hold a tent meeting in Elmer Crumb's grove six miles north of town, beginning next Sunday. David Grier, our old-time court reporter, is in the quarter master's department at San Francisco, and will go to Manila. He intends now to locate there. Humboldt Independent: Mr. C. D. Pettibone was in town Wednesday. He was setting up some marble work for the Algona Marble company in Union cemetery. Sidney Fuller of Hartley was drowned in the lake near Arnold's Park last Friday afternoon. He was in bathing and rowed a boat out in the lake and made a dive from the same striking his head on a stone and was unable to get assistance. Eagle Grove Times: The morning papers contain notice of the selection of W. A. Wright as postmaster at Ledyard. Mr. Wright is a brother of Geo. Wright of this city and has many friends who will rejoice at his success in the matter of appointment. The State Register in reporting the Colfax Epworth League says: The choral class is being organized to study the oratorio in "The Holy City," which will be given on the evening of July 2. The music is of a very high order, Prof. L, J. Smith of Algona having charge. Livermore Gazette: C. O. Simpson of Algona was in town last Wednesday, his first visit here since he got his bones shaken up by falling out of a wagon and mixing himself up with his sample trunks. He now wears the same smile, and carries himself with his usual elasticity. Fears are entertained at the treasury department that Geo. E. Roberts, the director of the mint appointed by President McKinley, may never return to duty there. Mr. Roberts left his desk about two months ago, suffering with bis lungs and throat and with a distressing cough. Fearing that his lungs might be seriously affected if he stayed in this humid atmosphere he went to Denver on a health seeking trip. There his physician decided that his trouble was seated not in his lungs so much as in his liver, and that his cough was one of the symptoms pointing to this. He went out to the Pacific coast and made a visit in Seattle, whence the treasury received its latest information of his condition from his own hand. His letter was not hopeful in tone, and at the time it was written he was so ill that he had been three week in bed. He then expected, as soon as he was able to bear the journey, to return as far as his home, Fort Dodge, Iowa and wait there till his convalescence was assured. The dis couraged way in which he wrote has aroused the alarm of his friends here, who have reluctantly reached the conclusion that he is a very sick man, and may not be able to resume the wearisome work of his desk in Washington KEEP SPIBIT LAKE IN MIND. The Big Clmutauqua Opens July 11 —Best Program Yet Given. The big Spirit Lake Chautauqua program opens in about two weeks, July 11. It will pay everybody in this part of Iowa to attend a few days. It would be a pleasant outing to attend the whole program. There will not be a dull day. These have been engaged Russell H. Conwell, Alexander Black, Geo. R. Wending, Chaplain McCabe, Gov. Peck, Father Nugent, Col. Bain, J. M. Stab), secretary of the farmers national congress and a man of much ability and eloquence; Miss Isabelle Garghill, the peerless reader; the Edison projectiscope, the greatest moving picture entertainment yet produced the Eastern Star Lady quartette and the Ottumwa Male quartette, each as good as the best; first-class soloists, a charming concert. Mrs. A. E. Shipley, state secretary of the C. L. S. C., will conduct the round table; Prof. H. W Fairbank of Chicago will lead the chorus. Some fine surprises are also promised. Remember the chautauqua at Spiri 1 Lake. EBNEBT WHEELQOK IN THE WAE He Has a Splendid Place With Gen. Merritt and Will Go to the Philippines. The following letter will interesl many friends of Mrs. Wheelock and her family. She kindly permits its publication: SAN FRANCISCO. Cal., June 15.—My Deal Mother: I have been looking for a lettei from you for some time, but have failed to receive but one since my arrival here. ] have been so busy for the past week that I have hardly had time to eat. Good news: A little over a week ago, after some little scheming I managed to secure an appointment on the clerical staff of General Otis. I stayed there but three days when I got appointed to a position on the clerical staff of General Merritt, where I now am. I live in the best style in San Francisco and the government pays the bill. I live up town at the hotel, and have as much liberty as though I were still in Minneapolis. I will cross the Pacific with headquarters, and .have of everything the best. I am in line for something better almost any time, and when the war is over I will be able to secure a fine position in the war department, or some other branch of the army. Will write more fully a little later, am so busy now; that the few minutes I have taken are all I can spare. In a few more days will be at leisure. Do not know when we start for the Philippine islands, but expect to sometime this month. .

A HOT TIME IN PROSPECT. CHAPLAINS TIGHT THE CANTEENS. But They Subsided and the Canteens Still Do a Rushing Business at Clilckaniaiiga Park. [Special Staff Correspondentt.] CAMP THOMAS, Chickamauga Park, Ga., June 24.—There Is the prospect of 'hot time" in this camp before long. All the chaplains of the various regiments got together and organized the hickamauga Chaplains' association. At the meeting this week a big discussion occurred over an attempt to pass a resolution against the "canteens," as the regimental beer tent is called. The majority were in favor of adopting astrong resolution "roasting" all who tavored and permitted the sale of beer in camp. Things were going smoothly and the resolution stood a good chance of passing when a chaplain from Maine, think of it, Maine a prohibition state, jumped up and made a long speech in favor of the canteens. Beer is the only intoxicating drink sold and the men must drink that at the canteen. The Maine "sky pilot" said that to adopt) the resolution would be very improper as the canteens were permitted ;o be run by the colonels, and that all the chaplains were appointed to their positions by the colonels. After considerable discussion the meeting ad- ourned without coming to any agree- nenl in the matter. The Fifty-second Iowa does not have a canteen and I don't see but what we _et along just as well as any regiment ;hat does have one. In fact we have nad the least sickness of any in our division. We have less illness here than we had at Des Moines by a large per cent. The regiment now has four in the hospital and ten in quarters, while at Camp McKinley it often had 30 or 40. There is absolutely noserioussick- ness in the regiment. The vaccination works hard on some of the boys and they have to lay off, but that is about all. Company F has not had a man in the hospital, though a few have had to miss one or two drills. The "rookies" are beginning to arrive and the "old veterans" have great fun at their expense. A crowd of 30 or more arrived today, each loaded down with his baggage and a few eatables and the latter were immediately taken possession of by the old men and divided. One company received about 20 new men and they had hardly got into quarters before the old ones began to tell them what poor food we got and how little of it. They fixed up a joke with their cook and when the men marched to dinner they each, rookies and veterans, received a piece of fat bacon the size of your thumb nail, a piece of hard tack about the size of an oyster cracker, three spoonfuls of black coffee, and a small piece of potato. • The old men smiled and said: "Gee whiz, we are going to have some potato. This is as good as at home," and rushed off to their tents to ravenously devour the food. The rookies really believed for some time that this was all they were to get and were beginning to experience the feeling of the man' who said he was "darn sorry the army evei broke out." The joking was soon over, however, as the old boys were too glac to see someone from Iowa to keep up the torment very long. When the first squad came into our regimental lines the boys all dropped whatever they were engaged at and ran to meet them One rookie was walking along with a white shirt on and one of the boys asked him what he came down here for: "To fight Spaniards" was the answer, and how the men did yell "To fight Spaniards," shouted a big fat corporal. "Don't you know tha' the only things we volunteers ever have or ever will get to fight are l zards, rattlesnakes, and the ague.' The crowd followed the poor rookies all the way to their quarters shouting " Here are some fellows that want to fight." "These'ere rookies think we 'uns come down here to fight Span iards,"and numerous other kindred expressions, but they were all just in fun and the recruit.who don't try to be colonel the first day he arrives has a very easy time in the Fifty-second as far as hazing is concerned. In fact the food here is of the best and the men get all they want. The work is com paratively easy after you get used to it and everybody says he is having a fine time. NOTES. Of course we all want to leave for th front as soon as possible, but that is the only cause for dissatisfaction felt in the camp. Company E has a deserter. His name is John E. Smith and he enlistee at Des Moines, where his home is. Judge Deemer was visiting in camp yesterday. JAY E. RANDALL. LIFE ON THE IOWA, Ship Not Much Fun on a Bin Uattle —A Small City In Itself. Mrs. W. H. Horan sends from Mon roe, Wis., the following letter written by a young friend, who is on the battle ship Iowa. It gives glimpses of life on the southern ocean: It is very warm here. You ask me about my work Well, I will tell you how it is, Some times it is very hard, and sometimes very easy. It is hard at sea. It is nol so much the work, it is the heat. Sometimes it is 140 degrees down in the hold, 30 feet below the water line. This ship is one of the best in the world. We have some guns that weigh 50 tons. It takes 500 pounds of powder to fire such a gun. The ships could blow a city all to pieces while standing Off shore J8 pr 15 miles. You cannot imagln how big this ship is. It i» as large as a building six stories high, and is 500 feet long. It weighs 12,000 tone. Every one of these ships has two bottoms and double sides. There IB eight inches of solid eteel around the sides and 1$ inohea on the turrets where the guns are. There is A Jlttle Store pn board where they gel! tobacco, cigars and refresh- There are also a barber shop, bakery, blacksmith shop, coppersmiths, carpenters, boiler-makers, machine shop and all kinds of mechanical vorkshops. It is just the same as a ittle town. At night everything is all it up with electric lights, and yet the waves toss this big ship around just as they would a feather. It hardly seems >osslble that so many thousand tons of ron and steel should float. If the ship should get a holein her, she would sink ust the same as if you would take a lat-iron and throw it in the river. The vlaine sank in three minutes. Every man has a bag for his clothes and a little box for his writing, etc. We have to draw the regulation amount of clothes, whether we want to or hot. They inspect our clothes once a month and if we have not got the full amount, they make us draw them. They are all woolen and flannel. Some of the men caught a big shark eight feet long ast week. They made a walking cane out of his back bone. The water around here is alive with them. If a nan should fall overboard he would not )e able to swim five feet before the sharks would get him. I have not been on land for three months. We are just 60 miles from Havana. I don't like it here, never did nor never will. Liberty is better than gold. It is just the same as being in orison away out here, miles away from sverything and everybody. After a jerson is here for a while he forgets ill about the outside world. We work our hours and. lay off eight hours. After each four hours of work another man takes our place, and that is the vay we keep the ship moving. The crew is divided into three sections, the same number of men in each. We all sleep in hammocks. There are 486 men on the Iowa. I could sit down and write for a month about the owa. The tables we ent on are made of oak and iron. They have legs that old up so they can be put out of the vay. THE COUNTY IS PLUSH. The Treasurer Holds $49,9OO In Cash—A Healthy Surplus. The county board met in special session Monday to hear the report of the checking committee on the county officers. In this it appears that the coun- ,y now has in cash $49,900 on hand.

HAWKEYE DAY AT OMAHA IOWANS HAVE IT THEIE OWN WAT Gay with Banners and. Bunting—Notable Speeches by Prominent Men Briefly Reviewed. To the Editor: Iowa day was one of the great days at the Omaha exposition. Great numbers were present. The Iowa building was gay with bunting and banners; the great porches (and so far the porches of the other completed state buildings are very far inferior in size to the porches of the Iowa building) were filled with easy chairs. A grand piano stood near the front in the center. The speakers chairs were placed in front of the piano and the Dubuque choral club occupied seats in the rear. Tn front and below the great porches seats were arranged for the audience. The presiding officer was ex-Gov. Packard of Louisiana Gov. Shaw of Iowa presented the Iowa building to the exposition in choice terms and in a very pleasing manner. The reply by Hon. Gurdon W. Walters of Omaha, president of the exposition commission, was eloquent and very effective. President Walters has a strong voice and he gave to the people of Iowa great credit for their readiness to respond in granting the material aid which would be needed to make the exposition a success, and also in the generosity of their feeling of pride in the exposition. The poem read by Mayor S. H. M. Byers of Des Moines was listened to very attentively and heartily applauded, although ovv'ing to the strong wind it was sometimes difficult to hear him. The orator of the day was Hon. John N. Baldwin of Council Bluffs. Mr. Baldwin ranks very high among Iowa speakers, and all who have heard him will say that his laurels are well earned. He held the close attention of the vast audience while Iowa's praises could not have been spoken in more forceful or more eloquent terms. The singing by the Dubuque choral club of one hundred voices under Prof. Pontius was one of the crowning features of the occasion, and when in response to encore they sang "And Cuba Shall Be Free" there was a storm of applause and cheers from the great audience which was deafening. After the public exercises were finished Governor and Mrs. Shaw assisted by ex-Governor Saunders of Nebraska held a public reception in the beautiful parlors of the Iowa building. Thousands of Iowa's brave people were thus favored with a cordial handshake and a few kind words of greeting from the governor and his good lady, who seems heartily in sympathy with her husband, and a very real helper in his official duties. We should not fail to state that Gov. Holcomb of Nebraska was an active participant in the exercises of the day. The day ended with a brilliant illumination of the lagoon and the exposition grounds and beautiful fireworks, a scene which pencil fails to picture. To appreciate the beauty of the Trans-Mississippi exposition one must visit the exposition in person. Words can carry no true idea to the mind of the grandeur and beauty of the "smaller white city," when seen under the radiance of the colored electric lights with the silvery mist of the electric fountain playing in front of the government building, and with the graily decorated gondolas, and the electric swan boats making their peaceful rounds upon the placid waters of the lagoon. 0.
