JULIAN. Phil. C. Hantia's Chance. The LuVerne News makes public a possible and probable honor that Is in etOfe for Phil. C. Hanna. At Fort Dodge Congressman Dolliver stated to various friends that Secretary of State Day had assured him that the very best information the state department was getting from any source came from Mr. Hanna, and that he was very highly regarded by President McKinley and the whole administration. It is not unlikely that he will be named governor of Porto Rico when it is taken, and that he will return to San Juan with authority. Mr. Hanna has the courage, the shrewdness, and the cool good sense to fill that responsible position. He knpws the people he would have to deal with, is popular with them, and at the eame time is a true blue American from tip to toe. Here's to Governor Hanna. the Fneion Congressional Convention. The democrats, populists, and silver republicans have decided to meet at Fort Dodge Sept. 14, to name the man to run with Dolliver. The Boone Democrat says: "The conference committee recommends the fusion of the silver forces, and a candidate will be nominated who will give Mr. Dolliver the race of his life. The best of harmony prevails among the fusion forces of this district and an agressive campaign will he made." The Democrat is the paper which has made light of Horace Mann's candidacy, and this announcement evidently does not refer to him. We still suggest to our Algona fusionists that if they intend to gobble this nomination they must be about it. Local Politics. THE UPPER DBS MOINES has a suggestion to make to the republicans of Algona with reference to the coming county ticket, and desires to make it before many candidacies are announced, so that nothing personal can be inferred from it. This suggestion is that the republicans ask but on a place on the ticket. There are a clerk, auditor, attorney, recorder, and two supervisors to be nominated. If an Algona candidate is named for one office that is all the town should ask, all that is likely to be granted, and all that will commend itself to the outside county. It - • may not be practicable to agree upon which office or which candidate the town will unite, but it should be practicable to agree that whenever it is evident that one office is conceded the delegates to the convention will thereupon withdraw any other candidates they may be supporting. Algona being divided into four wards, each acting independent of the other, is put at a disadvantage in all conventions, because whatever is done is credited to the town as a whole. Each ward endorses its own residents, just as the outside precincts do, and so it happens that very often the town asks for every office to be disposed of. This is bad politics if it passes .beyond a complimentary vote. It will be especially bad politics this fall. Algona has a number of men well qualified to fill every office that is to be filled. The outgoing officials are excellent men. But it is simply suicidal politics to urge a number of nominations. If the town wins the ticket will be unsatisfactory. If it lose.s it still leaves a bad impression with the outside precincts. THE UPPER DES MOINES does not say what it does in the interest of any candidate. It says it because it believes it should be said, and said thus early, in order that the outside county may have due notice that an open field will be given. There is an impression, right or wrong, that the county seat political workers haye extra advantages in canvassing and in influencing conventions. This impression must be overcome by an expressed and stuck-to determination to assist in fairly distributing our local tickets. Let it be understood now that Algona will urge but one nomination for the town and that all votes for other town candidates will be complimentary after It is determined in the convention which office, if any, and which candidate will be conceded to the town. NEWS AND OOMMENT. Tbe State Register is right. The Iowa dallies have given the best and latest news of the war, while for readers Interested in Iowa matters they are indispensl- ble. The associated press Is doing away with the monopoly enjoyed by the big city papers. The taste for Chicago papers is a fad like the old taste for Orange county, N. Y., butter. Senator J. H. Trewin of Allamakee addressed the Iowa republican clubs at Council Bluffs yesterday on what to do with the islands we are taking. The senator believes the thing to do is to hoist the American flag and go ahead. A Palo Alto delegate named Dolliver for the presidency at Fort Dodge. The democratic Chronicle says if there are to be any more republican presidents it does not think the young man Is very far off. The Nevada Representative thinks Samson has been shoving Schley to one side a little, and adds: " It is pleasant to note that he happened to be shoved to just the right side." The Fort Dodge Post sums up the fusion situation in the Tenth: In this district Horace Mann, a free silver republican of Kossuth county, is the only avowed can didate. Earl Billings of Ogden, another free silver republican is understood to be "willin." M. F. Healy is likely to have the nomination shoved at him unless he says "no" very emphatically pretty soon. There is little disposition to push the campaign at this time on the part of the fusion, forces, and most of the conventions are likely to go over until early fall. Bernard Murphy of the Vinton Eagle says: "Northvvhstern Iowa has 'parceling out offices' down to a science. Thomas was boosted into office and now the man who boosted him is to be boosted upon the bench he resigns." The northwest has to get it down to a science or all the places would be held by the Fifth district. The Fort Dodge Post, democratic, says Bryan and Cleveland are wrong on their foreign policy notions. When were they ever right? J. J. Bruce, the warrior of Pocahontas, is evidently out after Frank Helsell's scalp now that he is nominated for judge. Bruce has been off on too many tangents before. But if ho has any facts let them bo forthcoming. His charge seems to be that Helsell changed or had changed an official bond surreptitiously. Okoboji. The colonel is making many substantial improvements on his property. Milford Mail: Harry Foster of Algona has been visiting the family of his friend, Geo. Walters, returning home Tuesday. Livermore Gazette: Miss Dee Stiles came from Algona to spend the Fourth in Livermore and visit friends for a few weeks. Miss Ethel Charlton of Clear Lake, a frequent visitor in Algona, has taken a position in the state university library at Iowa City. Glen Bruuson and wife and Leon Hack and wife attended the druggists' meeting at Clear Lake Thursday, going from Livermore. Emmetsburg has let the contract for $2,315 of water mains. Crellin, who put in the Algona sewer, was the second best bidder at $2,474. Will Bailey at Emmetsburg shot fireworks. One eye is out, the second and third finger of his left hand are gone. He will live to shoot another day. The LuVerne News compliments Elder Yetter on his degree and says: We know of no one more worthy of the title and who will wear it with better grace and without injuring either himself or the title. Here's to your success, Doctor Yetter! The West Bend Tribune is authority for the story that Landlord Merrill of Whittemore had a claim of $50 insurance in a Burlington mutual company. The company assessed him $54 and told him to send the $4 and call it square. Insurance adds new terrors to fire. The Whittemore Champion advises everybody to go to the county fair: Every effort will be put forth to 'make it a record breaker and everyone should work hard to raise a bigger pumpkin than his neighbor and then take it to the fair. Any other product will do as well as pumpkins. Esthorville Republican; Chas. Kraft left for Algona yesterday and will visit the different stores in the state of the Kraft Clothing company before returning. * * * Mrs. Matson of Algona returned to her home Monday after an extended visit with the families of P. L. Christensen and A. Hauge. Armstrong Journal: O. F. Hale and family, from near St. Joe, listened to the eagle scream in Armstrong the Fourth. They were guests at the home of Geo. Stewart. * * * Miss Anna Kennedy, from near Algona, is visiting at the home of her sister, Mrs. W. R Flemming. * * * THE UHPER DES MOINES says they were short on pop in Algona the Fourth. How was the beer supply? When the Northwestern passenger arrived in Webster City last Saturday morning the messenger in the express car was almost afraid to open the door. In one corner of the car was an empty hog crate and his hogship was roaming around the car at will. It was not one of the little white pigs with pink eyes, but a big vicious hog. He resisted every effort to place him back in the crate, and some of the express matter was injured while the hog was on the rampage in the car. ANIMALS THAT ACT. PLEASED THE CONVENTION DOLLIVEB EXPBESSEB GRATITUDE Illustrated His Position with a Good Story—Strong Speech toy Our Congressman. Lockhnrt's Elephant Comedians Are With Ringling Bros.' Circus- July 20 the Date. D. N. Richardson, whose recent death removed the longest-time editor of Iowa, was one of the state's broad, brainy men. He bad lived a life-timo in Davenport, was an older brother of the well- known democratic state chairman, "Jersey" J. Richardson, and was equally interested in fine Jersey cattlo and old-time Jacksonian democracy. As regent of the state university lie for years exerted a molding influence on that institution, and in other public capacities his mark is left on state affairs. He was a writer, a trav- eller, a genial man of the world. The West Bend Journal says: Judge Quarton has proven satisfactory to the people and the bar of the district and is deserving of a second term. His ability as a judge is recognized throughout northern Iowa. The Rockwell City Advocate, one of the most influential papers in the Teuth district, ventures some political forecasts: It is the firm conviction of the Advocate And now come the famous Ringling Bros, with the most astounding trained Congressman Dolliver's speech accepting the nomination at Fort Dodge a week ago was in his best vein. It pleased tbe convention and made him new friends. The Messenger had a short-hand reporter present and publishes a verbatim report. In opening Mr. Dolliver said: It is needless for me to say that I appreciate more than I have ever appreciated before this expression of the confidence and good will of the republicans of the Tenth congressional district. (Applause.) I have wanted to be nominated for congress a good many times worse than I have wanted to be nominated this time; and, yet, in the years that I have tried to serve the district, there has been no nomination which lias touched my heart and aroused the sense of gratitude within me as it has been aroused by the action of the people of this congressional district this year. (Applause.) I used to think that a man ought not to run for congress more than twice, (laughter) but that was a theory only, and my experience has brought me into a very complete sympathy with an old democratic brother down in Mississippi that my friend. Hon. John Allen, often tells about. He was running for the nomination of sheriff against Jim Williams, who had been in office for two terras. He based bis case squarely on the theory that twice was enough for Jim, and was nominated and elected. At the end of his second term he had made up his mind that he ought to run again, and he came into town looking for his predecessor. He said that he had taken the position that two terms was enough for any man when he was a candidate first, and he wanted to make a sort of apology to the friends of the old sheriff. "I've changed my views," he says, "and if there is one thing that I am proud of it is the fact that when I find out I am wrong I have got the moral courage to say so." (Great Laughter.) THE OPENING OF WAR. Just after the declaration of war when the call was made upon this grand, patriotic state of Iowa for our quota of the national apportionment, I was interested in the county papers, and I picked up a copy of the Algona Republican giving an account of the enlistment and marching away to Des Moines of that splendid company of the Fourth Iowa regiment. It was a most dramatic story. It is likely that the editor who wrote it fully understood what a poem, what a drama, was involved in that simple report of tho&e soldier boys going out to defend the flag of their fathers, the institution^ of their country, and the cause of humanity and liberty in Cuba. There were the ministers of the gospel and the keeper to hold the mug a little higher down (great laughter) and the only effect of that would be to encumber a man's system with a few more bubbles (continued laughter,) a thing which will be no serious burden to the community. TOBACCO AND PATENT MEDICINE. We also thought that little additional levy on tobacco would be well received by the people, not because tobacco is not a necessity to a great many of us, but because we felt that a man who was smoking a cigar would feel better it he saw the liabilities of the treasury disappearing in smoke. (Applause.) It gives a color of patriotism, that is an inspiration to the country and its cause, to everybody who has any contact with the tobacco trade; and we thought if there was anything that could stand it, that that trade could, all the more so because anyone that feels overburdened by the levy can relieve himself wothout an act of congress. (Laughter.) And so I will say, the great bulk of the money that will be raised by the act of congress, just passed, will be raised from those two sources. Besides that, there is the stamp tax upon the Instruments of business which will be brought to your attention later. There is also the tax upon patent medicines. Now, we didn't have anything against patent medicines, but a great many of these fellows who have got rich can afford to PLEASURES OF PAY DAY. EXPERIENCED AT OAMP THOMAS put in a little something. We just Still Quiet at Santiago. Gen. Shaffter is still parleying with the Spaniards at Santiago, expecting them to surrender. A rumor is afloat this morning that he has the city. A rumor is also afloat that the Spaniards have escaped and started for Havana. No peace overtures have been made by Spain. Of the Spanish vessels sunk a week ago only one is found worth raising. Gen. Miles has gone to Santiago to take personal command of the land forces. Great feeling is excited between the friends of Samson and Sohley over the statement that Samson has tried to enub and side-track the latter. Watson is preparing rapidly for his trip to the Spanish coast. Cubans Jive Incompetent. Lafe Young, who landed with Sbaf' ^er's army at Santiagp, IB at home.

Itv • wany y&we to $ewe a ^abie j w aj i that nothing in the ordinary course of events can prevent the public growth of J. P. Dolliver into the presidential rank, even though by the fortunes of politics ho may never be called upon to occupy the chair. He is now one of the 15 oldest members of the house. So far as the people of this district are concerned he can stay there as long as he desires. We would like to see him remain long enough to become chairman of the great ways and means committee, of which he is now an influential member, then speaker of the house, then to the presidential chair. Jonathan P. Dolliver has the ability and the personal integrity to fill that position well. We prophesy that some day the people of Amerjca will give him the opportunity. The July Midland Monthly is full of good things. It promises a series of letters from young Mr. Thompson of Forest City, who is going around the world. Congressman Dolliver has an admirable sketch of Gov. Carpenter in this number. Roberts is able to be out a animal divertisement of the century—a company of genuine comedy elephants —presenting vaudeville specialties and oyen complete, laughable plays with absolute fidelity to truth and nature, and with an intelligence never before exhibited in tbe brute creation. In securing the wonderful Lookhart comedy elephants Ringling Bros, have indeed made a master stroke. Until the Lockhart elephants appeared it was generally believed that the limit of what could be taught the elephant had been reached. These comedy elephants have not only shattered all previously conceived ideas of the possibilities of animal training, but they are, and will undoubtedly continue to be for many years, the most marvelous instance of the power of man over the brute creation that history has any record of. Those wonderful elephants do not go through their performance with the perfunctory submissiveness so apparent in many trained animals, but they apply themselves to the task of entertaining the vast audiences that gather daily under Ringling Bros.'mammoth pavilions with an intelligence, a sense of the proprieties, and a keen evidence of humor that is at once marvelous and delightful. They work absolutely without urging, seem to appreciate the importance of their part of the entertainment, and unmistakably evidence their delight when the audience breaks out into long-continued applause. The repertoire of the Lookhart elephants embraces several laughable comedies, and among them is a convulsing- drama in several intensely funny scenes. There is the cafe, with two elephants wrangling over the payment of their score: the arrest of the more belligerent for drunkenness; his trial before the magistrate and final commitment to prison. churches and the Sunday schools, with their little flags, marching ahead of the company; there was the old grand army cannon from the post; there was the broken and feeble remnant of the old Union army; there was the Women's Relief corps; there was the camp of tbe Sons of Veteran's; all, the entire community, marching, with shouts and with songs and with prayers and with tears, out to the depot to see tbe boys off; tind as I read that, while the tears filled my eyes, I could not held saying to myself: "How would a man fare if he got up at that depot and begun to make an old speech on the 'Crime of '73?' " (Applause and great laughter.) THE WAR MAKES NEW ISSUES. The very situation of our case has brought into our politics new questions, and for one T am glad that the republican party is on hand to solve these questions. I do not intend to raise a partisan dispute here. I have felt in my heart from the beginning of the controversy in which our country is now placed, a certain pride and enthusiasm that there has come a moment in the lives of our people when the lines of party and creed are obliterated; and I have had no experience in the ten years I have been in public life at all approaching that experience when I saw every man, democrat, populist, republican, in the house of representatives with one united shout give their voice and their support to the leadership of William McKinley. It was a grand sight. It was worth more to the American people than all the Cuban war, or the Cuban protectorate will cost. And I, for one, have been grateful that tit every step of this controversy we have had in the house of representatives the support and the votes of men who ditfer from us in politics, but who are united with us in their anxiety to see the old flag of copied the act of 1866, which the older men here will remember, and we made these assessments because we found that while they may be necessities, yet, there is a margin of profit between the water, of which the article is mainly composed, and the dollar for which it is usually sold at retail, and we put a levy upon these articles: and will let the boys divide it among themselves in the due course of the trade. We did not expect that anybody would have to pay more than a dollar a bottle for his sarsaparilla, and if there were four cents of it got into the treasury out of the transaction, somebody would have put it in between brother Hood's factory down in Massachusetts and the shelves of our drug stores out herein Iowa. (Applause.) A STORY ON GEN. WHEELER. I know General Wheeler. I have served with him in congress for ten years; I have served with him for five years on the same committee. The old man was profoundly stirred up when he saw the war coming on. His greatest ambition was to get back to the army. I said to him, "why general you are nearly 70 years of age, do you mean to say that you want to go into Cuba with the armies of the United States?" He said, "that is exactly what I mean." " Well," said I, " what is your idea, general?" " Well" said he, "I will tell you. I was educated at West Point. I served 20 years in the army before the war broke out. I went with the state of Alabama into the confederate army. I used the knowledge that I had acquired in military affairs in the service of the confederate government. I had, as a cavalry officer control of the cavalry of the confederate army. When the war was over I was ranking cavalry general of all the confederate armies." And said he " I don't know whether I will live to come back from Cuba or not; I am an old man, but I want to go down there. I will resign my work in congress. I have now but one ambition, and that is to die in the uniform of the United States army," (Prolonged applause.) I say that we have got back out of this war already more than it will cost. VOTED FOR HAWAII. • I want to talk to you about one more thing. The last thing I did before I left Washington, for you see I have run away from my post in order to have the pleasure of being here today. I hope they will adjourn before I get back and if they do I will not go back. But if they do not I will go back Of course I don't want the idea to fi-et abroad in this district that the thing can run very long without me. (Great laughter.) Now, the last thing I did before I came away was to vote for the annexation of the Hawaiian islands. (Prolonged applause,) Mind you, I had not heard a word from anybody (Hearty applause.) (Voice in audience) have now. (Applause.) But I The Boys Will Now Get Ice Every Day—Promotions In Company F—General Notes. CAMP THOMAS, Chickamauga Park Ga., July 8.—The boys are all happy again, as we received our pay this morning. There has existed a universal state of "complete bustedness" for several days—weeks with some—and it is no wonder that they are glad to get the money. We were ;mid for a month and six days to bring the pay day on the first of the month. Every man in Company F has subscribed 50 cents of this month's pay to be put into a company fund, which will be expended in buying ice and extras in the way of food. Our rations being already very good, this addition will fix matters so that our company will have as good meals as anyone. The company will get ice every day, as we are obliged to drink boiled water, and unless we have vege- Geo. E. little. IN THIS The mulct petition has carried in Dickinson county.

Tellier, Milo V. Chapin, Glen H. Davison, Rudolf Anderson, Harry Hulsizer, Merrit A. Turner. Frank Underwood was appointed lance corporal. "They will be obeyed and respected accordingly," the order said, so if anyone should write to one of them he must not forget to put "Corporal" in front of his name. They are seven of our best men and will make excellent non-commissioned officers. Sergeant Roy Carpenter has resigned his position as quartermaster and Sergeant Chas. Taylor was appointed in his place. •*- -*- -f- The Fourth passed very quietly. All drills were suspended and lying around in the shade was the principal occupation until about 3 o'clock in the afternoon when tbe news of Samson's victory at Santiago was brought to camp. The boys went wild for a short time, but soon settled down in the shade again and discussed what they would do when they got back home. Some even went so far as to speculate on the probable route over which the government would send us home, and whether or not we would have a grand review in Washington before our return. •*••*••*• The "rookies" still continue to arrive 1 We received nine yesterday and now have 32 in all.
