Bates of advertising sent on application. Dolliver by Acclamation. Congressman Dolliver was renoml- nated for his fifth term by acclamation. That is an unusual honor In American politics. There are but 15 members of congress who have served as long as he has. The best thing about this honor is that it is deserved. Annexation of Hawaii. The members of congress from Iowa took a leading part in the Hawaiian debate. Dolliver, Hepburn and Lacey epoke for annexation. Dolliver closed a brilliant little speech as follows: " The American people will take care of the Philippine Islands when our campaign in the orient is at an end. They will take care of Puerto Rico; they will tako care of Cuba, and that afflicted community will flnd in the hearts of our people, when our work in Cuba is done, the same sympathy, the same anxiety for their welfare, that persuaded the great republic to enlist an army and send its navy on its mission of mercy and peace in the West Indies. (Applause.] Myfriend,rieedhavonofear. Every question that arise% will be taken care of; but we must taKe care of the question of Hawaii first/ because it had the floor 60 years before the other questions arose. [LaughterXnd applause.] Therefore, Mr. Speaker, Jftuu in favor now and here of making.iCn end to this controversy and raising inrfiat fortress of the Pacific the old flag of our fathers, once hauled down, but abpcrc to be run up again, forever after- "irds to glorify the skies of the southern ,n. [Prolonged applause.]" Col. Hepburn, after advocating the conquest of all Spain's outlying possessions let fly the eagle of the "Greater America" in the following peroration: What we will do with them afterwards is a question for the statesmanship of this great nation. That we will act wisely I have no doubt. But whatever we do with that territory, I am persuaded that this side of the house, and I believe that side, will insist upon retaining such portions of that territory as will enable us to meet all of the requirements of modern commerce. In the old days, with the old instrumentalities, we did not need the frequent friendly port. Now we do. We must have it or drop out of the procession of nations in their great effort to capture the commerce of the world. [Prolonged applause.] NEWS ANJD COMMENT, Carroll Herald: The lack of newspaper support was one of the fatal symtoms of the Perkins campaign for renomination in the Eleventh district. Though a newspaper man himself, for some cause—we do not say a just one—the newspapers of the district did not come to his support. Instead, there was an ominous lack of newspaper indorsement, the friends of former campaigns refusing to take any hand in the canvass. The result was logical, though we must admit we looked for his renomina- tion. We are not discussing causes, but we cannot ;refrain from observing that Mi/" Perkins lost his seat in congress by pernrftt- ting the newspapers of the district t» become alienated. Moralize as you pleale, the newspaper is the dominant influence in making and unmaking men. / Capt. Hartshorn of Emmetsburg is the most likely candidate for state auditor, as the race now stands. The subscriptions to the war loa'n of 1200,000,000 are over $800,000,000. Only a few who wanted government bonds will be able to get tiiem. The bidders for the smallest amounts are to be first considered. The M^Cormick harvester company has sueJ the Adams express company for |5,OOC because the company refused to put the new revenue stamps on • its packages, and compelled the sender to do it. Loiter, senior, has borrowed $3,000,000 for 10 years at four per cent,, and mortgaged some of his best Chicago property. He has notified the companies that he shall want 83,000,000 to 84,000,000 more. Young Leiter's losses have used up all his own fortune and a big part of his father's.

This deals with a filibustering expedition and is full of romance. It is illustrated by B. West Clinedtnst. There are two articles on "Confederate Commerce Destroyers. Colonel John Taylor Wood, commander of the vessel tells of the " Tallahassee's Dash into New York Waters,' while G. Terry Sinclair describes "The Eventful Cruise the Florida."

Postmaster Bender has put a new outfit like Algona's in the Spencer office. Britt News: J. T. Dawson of Algona is temporarily employed In the Britt dye works for a week or two. Spencer News: C. C. Calkins departed yesterday for Algona, where he will spend a week or two with his parents. A Milwaukee brakeman got his foot cut off at Ruthven last week, He put his foot between the couplings of the cars to push something. The train that carried the Emmetsburg firemen to Whittemore Wednesday night about 12 o'clock, made the trip of 13 miles in 12 minutes. The liverymen at Esther ville charged 81 a stall for teams at the celebration. The Democrat gives them a mild roast, Why, indeed, should anyone raise prices on patriotic celebrators? Chris. Mortenson got back to Britt from the Sioux City gun tournament with enough scalps in his belt to last him the rest of the summer. His average for the three days' shoot was 03, a record which has not been reached by many of the top-notchers many times this season. ' SOME BESOTTED VERSES. THE UPPEU DBS MOINES has come into possession of some verses, which it hastens to snatch from oblivion. They were written for the dedication of the Okoboji monument and sent to Senator Funk. The senator being at home and not caring for a visit from the shades of the departed declined with thanks. The poet speaks of those who wore murdered by the Sioux in 1857 in the following linos: O solemn, sacred task forsooth to flnd the bones Of those, our cherished, precious, loving, murdered ones, And reinter their dust amidst fond memory's vent, O'er which will stand a stately marMe monument. So gently let us raise their varied, sacred dust, Since in our hands is placed the very precious trust, And gather every atom found, with tender care- Each cold and crumbling bone, and each weird tress of hialr. How justice dallied/-lingered, yet, I'll be content, / Since these Bemains will rest beneath a monument, And standing proudly high, thus to perpetuate, those who met a bloody Due,Hiemory for •* fate. .nd though quite eight and thirty years, bright sparkling lakes, Sweet peace hath reigned along thy shores, yet wakes, Ah me! Sad memories of that hellish, murderous fray, Which I shall bear in mind until iny dying day. QUITE LIKE A LOVE FEAST "DOLLIVER DAT" AT FOBT DODGE Delegates and Friends Were Royally Entertained—Judicial Nominations at Spirit The meeting of thi cong-essional convention at Port Dodge last Thursday was a sort of ratification meeting. It was the first congressional convention that has been held in Fort Dodge in many years and the citizens made the occasion memorable. The convention proper was a republican experience meeting, while the banquet in the evening was a social celebration such as has not been seen in northern Iowa in many years. Congressman Dolliver the vacancy created by the resignation of Judge Thomas. The candidates were then sent for and introduced to the convention. Jduge Quarton, aftar thanking the convention for Its cordial support, briefly reviewed the work of his first terra, and pledged a continuance of high purpose and loyal endeavor in his public service. Mr. Helsell was evidently moved by the generous treatment of his candidacy by the convention. He said it was to him a matter of regret that there had not been more time for the consideration of the matter. He had not urged action upon the Thomas succession, indeed he had not expected it at this time. He was none the less grateful, however, for tha confidence and the friendship expressed in this unanimous nomination. Mr. Helsell paid a splendid tribute to his neighbor, Judge Thomas, expressing the hope that he might in somo measure exemplify in his career on the bench the ability, fairness, and fidelity to duty manifest in the judicial service of the man he is to succeed. THE SPANISH FLEET WIPED OUT. Gen. Shaffter's forces have gradually closed in on Santiago the past week, fighting desperately and with heavy losses. On Sunday Cervera's fleet, seeing it was doomed, attempted to escape from the harbor. As the Spanish vessels came out the American fleet began a deadly fire. Every Spanish ship was sunk within a few miles. The Christobal Colon got farthest away, but was finally run ashore and totally disabled. Cervera and 1,300 Spaniards are prisoners. The American loss was one man, and not a boat scratched. Every Spanish boat was a first-class war vessel. Gen. Shaffter gave Santiago till noon yesterday to surrender. A fleet under Admiral Watson will go at once to old Spain and carry the war to the coast cities. The transports from San Francisco have arrived at Manila, and Dewey is gaining ground in the Philippines. It was a glorious Fourth of July. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. The Right Hon. James Bryce, M. P., the foremost foreign observer and critic of American affairs, enters an earnest plea in the July Atlantic, from the British standpoint for international friendship.

The following biographical sketch of Judge Thomas appears in the Sioux City Journal: Lot Thomas was born Oct. 17, 1843, on a farm in southwestern Pennsylvania. He lived on the farm until he was 21 years of age. During that time he attended country school. Upon reaching his majority he entered Vermillion institute of Hayesville, O. This was was in August, 1864. He stayed in this school until 1868. In the fall of 1868 he came to Iowa. He taught school in Warren county two years. During this time he studied law. In January of 1870 he entered the law department of the state university at Iowa City. He studied here two terms, only a part of ayear. In August of 1870 he went to Storm Lake of Buena Vista county, where he opened an office as practitioner of law. In 1871 ho removed to Sioux Rapids, the county seat being located at that place and it consequently being a better location f _, • the practice of his profession. In the fall of 1877 he returned to Storm Lake where he has since lived. On Jan. 1, 1885, he took a seat on the bench of the Fourteenth judicial district of Iowa, having been elected to that office by the people. He has held the office since that time and is now serving his fourth term. He was marrfed in 1873 to Miss Oma Barton of Ashland, O, He has three children, two sons and one daughter, all of whom live in Storm Lake. His father, aged 85 years, is living in Pennsylvania. He has two uncles, aged 88 and 95 respectively, living in the same state. Lot Thomas was a candidate for the congressional nomination of this district once before. It was in 1882 and the convention was held in Sioux City. I. S, Struble of Plymouth county, was th e nominee of the con ven tion, although Thomas oame near being nominated. Other candidates besides Thomas and Struble were: Isaac Pendleton of Woodbury county, H. C. Wheeler of Sao county, J. J. Russell of Green county. Forty-eight votes were necessary for a nomination, Woodbury had eight votes and it was understood by the Thomas men that those votes were to go to Tbomaa at any time they would insure his nomination. On one ballot Thomas had 40 votes and looked to Woodbury to throw him its eight votes. Through a misunderatandlng, however, or for some other reason, Woodbury did not cast its vote for Thomas and he was not nominated. On the next ballot Buena Vista, Thomas' strong support, boomed Struble, who was finally nominated, spoke at length in response to the unanimous nomination tendered to him by the convention, and was cheered to the echo. At the banquet he responded eloquentlytothetoast, "TheAmeri- can Congress," while M. F. Healey, the well-known democrat, spoke no less eloquently of Mr. Dolliver himself and his eloquent part in that congress. Kossuth was represented in all the proceedings. A. A. Brunson was chosen temporary and permanent chairman of the convention, and Al. Adams was secretary. On taking the chair Mr, Brunson made a little speech. The Messenger says: "In a brief address Mr. Brunson eulogized the policy of the administration, and closed amidst the enthusiastic endorsement of the delegates." The Messenger also notes that "the initiatory proceedings of temporary organization were formally commenced upon the motion of Geo. W. •Hanna of Kossuth county, which resulted in the appointment of committees on credentials, permanent organization, resolutions, and congressional committee." At the Banquet Samuel Mayne spoke for Kossuth, paying a glowing tribute to "the American woman." The Dolliver home was thrown open and delegates and business men alike wei-e tendered a royal reception. The interior of the residence was appropriately decorated and presided tjver by Rev. Dolliver and Mrs. J. P. Dolliver, assisted by Mrs. Geo. E. Roberts, Misses Blanche Burnam and Bessie Doud. Mr. Dolliver'e library building, which is separated from the residence by a grassy lawn, was most beautifully and appropriately decorated. Mr. J. P. Dolliver and Miss Gay Dolliver received, assisted by Mrs. John Pearsons, Misses Kosier, Myrtle Holm, Mary Kirkup, Jeannie Ringland, and Nancy Welles. Our New Judicial Ticket. Judge Quarton was renominated IT IS BIGGER THAN EVEE. on Ringliiig Bros.' Great Show Doubled In Size Since liust Season—It Comes Here July 20. Ringhng Bros.' world's greatest shows, now universally acknowledged to be the largest, grandest, and most complete combined circus, menagerie and hippodrome on earth, will exhibit in Algona, Tuesday, July 26. Ringling Bros. 1 supremacy in the amusement world has, in recent years, become so pronounced that the name of their marvelous exhibition is in itself aguar- antee of its surpassing merit. The achievements of the past have, however, been notably eclipsed by the grandeur and striking novelty of the stupendous enterprise organized by these progressive managers for the present season. Colossal as Ringling Bros.'grand exposition was last year, it was not to be compared with the magnitude of this season's offering. There are twice as many railroad cars, twice as many elephants, twice as many new and rare wild animals, twice as many notable and unequalled European and American arenic specialists, twice as many really great features as there were last year, and the millions of people who are acquainted with the former triumphs of this show of shows will readily understand what such an augmentation of Ringling Bros.' magnificent exhibition must have entailed in its organization and must involve in the way of expense. According to the most careful estimate the amount of capital invested in this vast enterprise is $3,700,000, while the average daily expense is over $7,400. There are five long trains of double cars, with a floor ARE DOING PROYOST DUTY SOLDIER BOYS AT OAMP THOMAS The Change Involves Hard "Work, but is Relished Because It Relieves the Monotony. day, and F. H. Helsell was named to succeed Judge Thomas. The Beacon of Spirit Lake gives a full account of the proceedings. The convention was called to order by Hon. W. W. Cornwall of Clay. Hon. D. F, Coyle of Humboldt filled the chair, and G. W. Adams of Emmet acted as secretary. Every county was represented, and there were no contesting delegations. The report of the committee on resolutions caused the only division during the proceedings, by recommending that a successor to Judge Thomas, whose resignation had been accepted by the governor, be nominated at this convention. After a little parliamentary skirmishing a direct vote on this proposition was ordered, resulting in its adoption by a vote of 53 to 12. The opposing votes being oast by Emmet ana Palo Alto counties. A call of counties on the nomination of a successor to Judge Quarton was then ordered, Buena Vista voted for Quarton. Clay gave one vote to Hon. J. G. Myerly of Emmet, and seven to Quarton. Dickinson voted for Quarton and Emmet for Myerly. Humboldt § ave her vote to her own citizen, G. H. hellenberger. Kossuth was for Quarton. Palo Alto hesitated a little but swung in line for the judge and Pooa- hontas was anchored in the same col- space or loading capacity equal to 130 the first ballot at Okoboji last Thurs-1 of the cars ordinarily used in railway traffic; 25 elephants, the largest number ever seen in the western hemisphere, 400 of the finest blooded horses; scores of cages of wild animals, and hundreds of high-class performers and special features entirely beyond the reach of other arenic exhibitions. The performances are given in the largest canvasamphitheatreevery constructed, and absolutely impervious to the elements. There are five arenas, two big stages, three rings, and an almost bewildering forest of mid-air paraphernalia for the absorbing aerial displays, while the hippodrome races are run upon a great elflptical racing course fully one-quarter of a mile in circumference, giving an immense area for the exploitation of the gloriously thrilling contests of the Roman maximus and the hardly less impressive races of the modern turf, such as has not been known since the days of the imperial Augustus. ANOTHER NEW BAILROAD, CAMP THOMAS, Chickamauga Park, Ga., July 2.—Company F has been on detached provost guard duty all this week at Cave spring, In the southwest corner of the park. Tuesday at noon Capt. Cooke received orders to pack up and get ready to move to Cave spring at once. The boys packed up in a hurry, and loading our shelter tents on the wagons we left for a week's guard duty. Company G of the First Maine is also with us. We have a guard line from the southwest corner of the park along the railroad about two miles to the town of Lytle. It makes almost continual guard work, but as there is no intervening drill the boys are all enjoying themselves. The men like the novelty of the shelter tents. They are made of two pieces of canvas, which button together and form a wedge tent with one open end. Each man is supposed to carry his half of the tent on his back with his blankets during the march. One of the things the boys most enjoy on this duty is the patrol work. About 7 o'clock each night parties of the guard composed of seven or eight men and a "non-com." start out and make the rounds of all the orchards in our district. Here they capture two or three men about every hour, which somewhat breaks the monotony of the routine guard duty. Taken all in all the boys enjoy the work here much more than they do at camp. We expect to be relieved today. -*- -f- -5- The "rookies" are still arriving and are being taken in hand by the corporals. •f- -*- •*There will be six new corporals appointed in a day or so. Each private that aspires to be a non-commissioned officer is obliged to drill a squad of men through some nine or ten movements. These drills have been going on for the last few days and we are going to have some good corporals when the appointments are made. <+• -i- -;Ernest Raymond, David Miller, and Frank Mitchell have all arrived, and as they have all had drill are getting down to good work. -f- -i- -*A short distance from our present camp is the famous Widow Glenn hill, where Gen. Rosecrans had his headquarters and where the incompleted monument to the memory of Gen. Wilder now stands. This monument, which is a stone tower about 30 feet high, has had a very hard time of it. The originator of the movement to build it spent the last years of his life in an endeavor to raise enough money to do so. When he finally had the money all subscribed and in the bank, and the tower built to its present height, the bank failed, and the poor old veteran, whose only aim in life was to see a monument erected on the ground where his old commander stood, was so overcome by the disappointment that he only lived a few weeks after the failure of the bank. The monument stands just as it did that day, no one ever having had the heart to complete it, and to one acquainted with its history it is as much a reminder of the poor old private as it is of the general. -j- -5- -5- Along near our " Pos'-No. 4" is the famous "bloody pond." It is now surrounded by the government corral and furnishes the water for the horses, but during the battle, it is claimed, the fight was so furious around there that the entire pond was turned red with blood. •+••*•-)The entire First corps has orders to get ready to leave at once.

For general information on all other matters write Rev. I. B. Kilborne of Goldfield, Iowa, or the presiding elder. Goldfield, the seat of the Algena district campmeeting for 1898, is situated at the junction of the B., C. R. & N., and the Elmore branch of the C. & N. W. railroads, making it easy of access from all parts of the district, The place where the meeting is to be held is In a beautiful grove of native timber on the banks of the Boone riyer. A flowing well within a few yards of the place where the tabernacle is to be pitched, will furnish an abundant supply of excellent water. Boarding accommodations for all who desire them will be furnished at reasonable prices on the grounds. Pasture or stabling for teams will be provided at reasonable rates. Tents will be furnished at the usual prices. BEMI-LOOAL NEWS NOTES, Prof. D. H. Kent is going to lose his Mud Lake farm south of Webster City. The Webster City Tribune says he has spent all he haa in improving it, a comfortable competency. There are 6,000 acres and he gave the county $4,000 for it. He arranged for the riparian rights of the adjacent owners and started a big gang of men to work ditching and draining and tiling the farm. He could see the progress be was making, but he did not have the means to push it as fast as he wished. Nathan Shee, a man of wealth, residing at Des Moines, was willing to furnish Mr. Kent money and he did so. As his part he was to have an undivided half of the reclaimed land. Now the matter has reached such a stage that he is probably going to get the other half on an execution of $22,294. The sheriff has levied an attachment upon Mr. Kent's undivided half and will sell it at public sale. -f- -i- -*A dispatch from St. Thomas says that Consul Phil. Hanna has expressed ade- sire to go with the United States fleet to Porto Rico, in order to point out the new guns and forts at San Juan, the location of which he is undoubtedly well acquainted with. The Livermore Gazette says: Phil, would like nothing better than to stand on the ship's bridge beside Admiral Sampson, his coattailssnappingin the tropical breeze while he drew a bead with his index finger on the hidden location of theene- mv t giving direction to our fleet where they might point their guns with the certainty of stirring up some surprised Spaniards, Phil, has undoubtedly taken many a Sunday afternoon's stroll along that beach, asking more innocent questions of the Spanish officials than a guileless seven-year-old child, and incidentally picking up clam shells meanwhile; but we'll warrant he made a mental note of about where an American gun boat would want to anchor in order to create commotion. That information he is now prepared to die- close. -f- -T- -i- Miss Jodie Baker, known in Algona college days, is completing her ninth year as professor of Greek in Simpson college. The Northwestern Christian Advocate of Chicago has a lengthy notice of her work in connection with, her coming to Chicago university to take a year's study, having been given leave of absence for that purpose. The Advocate in speaking of her says: Her mother was teacher of Latin and French in this city and Algona, Iowa, and her father, Prof. O. H. Baker, late United States consul at Copenhagen, has spent most of his life as a teacher in seminaries and colleges. Miss Myra Baker, a sister, is preceptress and professor of German and French in Upper Iowa university, and Miss Emma, another sister, fills -the chair of modern languages in Fort Worth university, Texas. Both Myra and Emma are graduates of Simpson college, and have taken post graduate work at De Pauw and also in Germany and France. This is indeed a family of pedagogic bent of mind, and Simpson is glad to claim Miss Joanna Balfer as one of its able corps of teachers and one whose accomplishments should be made known to the educational world. .4 Seneca News Mr. Aioorn. oame to the creamery jftornjng with a wnillng opun, J«tW we Jea.rn.e4 th.eoa.uje: the ftj'rilffll el a, lw§nj| umn, whereupon McFarland of Humboldt withdrew the name of his neighbor, Shellenberger, and moved that the nomination of Judge Quarton be made unanimous.

A glance at the map will show that the route is not only feasible, but that It would occupy territory that is largely without good railway accommodations. It is highly probable the question will soon assume definite shape, in which event we shall take occasion to refer the matter more definitely. DON'T forget Cannon Chop tea—sold only by jfl, £.
