President McKinley has ordered an immediate movement against Porto Rico. Gen. Miles and Gen. Brooke •will start at once. Watson's fleet will start for Spain in a few days. The Spaniards gave up their arms at Santiago. Gen. Shaffter won a great victory with little loss. Spain is under martial law, and big popular uprisings are feared. The Helsell Candidacy. Copies of the Sioux Rapids Republican have been widely scattered the past week containing very serious charges against the west end candidate for judge to succeed Judge Thomas. There is evidence in the charges themselves that a very large element of personal dislike is in them, and those who know Mr. Helsell best say they are wholly malicious. THE UPPER DBS MOINES is not acquainted with Mr. Helsell well enough to speak with authority. It cautions republicans, however, to take with great allowance these evidently prejudiced complaints. There will be plenty of time to find out how much , merit they possess before election, and in the meantime the mere fact that Judge Thomas and the solid Buena Vista county delegation personally vouched for Mr. Helsell will be satisfactory evidence of his fitness. Over-stating It. The Cedar Rapids Republican is tack to Horace Boies' favorite doctrine that the constable is the only law enforcing official in Iowa. It says there is no way now to enforce laws local sentiment is opposed to. Will the Republican kindly explain how our present game laws are enforced? Will it also explain how our national revenue laws are enforced? Will it also explain how a military draft is enforced? There is truth in what Gov. Shaw said at Mason City that the governor of the state cannot take a hand in every local contest for good government. But Gov. Shaw never said that as governor he •was not the head law enforcing official of Iowa, for he is. When Gov. Kirkwood told Dubuquo that the draft would be obeyed or someone would hang, he was acting under official authority, just as Gov. Boies was when he ordered the Cheyenne pony racers to be careful In crossing Iowa. Gov. Northern in saying he would hang someone if another lynching took place in Georgia, Gov. Mathews in ordering out troops to stop a prize fight in Indiana when the sheriff refused to act, and Gov. Noble In Mississippi in bringing back Sullivan and Ktlraln and putting them In jail, were all acting in their legal right. It was the disgrace of Gov. Boies' administration that he apologized for- the open and flagrant violation of the liquor law, Whatever anyone may think of the law no one will ever hold him in the same esteem for failing to enforce a decent outward obedience to it. The whole theory of our government is to put the enforcement of law out of reach of local prejudice. If the Repub Hcan will notice it will see that from the selection of a jury from a remote neighborhood or a change of venue, to the authority of the president to invade a seceding state, law enforcement is wisely put where a local conspiracy cannot reach it. In the state the governor is the superme law enforcing Official. Wherever an open and flagrant violation of law involves a neighborhood BO large that the sheriff is unable Or unwilling to suppress it, the governor must act, or earn the contempt ol posterity for his weak exasion. The constable is an important law enforcing officer. But it is easy to over-state his jaart in the schedule of state duties. Port Podge Way. - The Koesuth delegates to the congressional convention came home with , fusses for the Fort Dodge way of en, Jertftlning a convention. Their praisee Iff re. not merely for the material com ferjs .afforded, but for the intelligent Ijpppfrfttion, of Fort Dodgers, republican •apj democratic. The kindly and irH 0* such wen ae Gov hae borne fruits, and For Aw the «M*te £ ot paet the In politics ment is nowhere better shown than in the following comment on Mr. Doliver's nomination, which appears in ,he democratic Post, written we judge jy Capt. Yeoman: "The people of Fort Dodge, without regard to party, are glad to welcome Mr. Deliver home. Everybody seems to be broad junged and good natured in this heroic lour. It is a good thing once in a while to hare war if for nothing else than to make us acquainted with our neighbors. Mr. Oolllver has grown upon the public in the ten years he has been in congress. It is not necessary to say that his conversation and speech are much pleasanter to his political foes than when he used to be throwing barbed points into them. "We are glad to see Mr. Dolliver, in that conservatism that age and public service alone can bring, forego the trifling and ephemeral applause that comes from aend- ng out sarcastic and bitter arrows at your enemy. The speech that Mr. Dolliver made in accepting his sixth nomination to congress was without question the broadest and ablest that we have ever known him to make and when, filled with patriotism he spoke those divinely tender words of Gen- sral Wheeler, there Were many democrats in his audience touched to tears while they realized how patriotism had reunited the country, and the writer forgave many a Barbed shaft launched at his expense in pol- tical warfare and resolved never to fashion an unkind speech concerning him—at least until the war is over. "Now Mr. Dolliver we have been fair 'oes, it is but fair that we should be the fairest of friends, so long at least as either of us has but one wish close to his heart and that is the over-throw of the common enemy of the great republic. "Here's to you a long life and a patriotic one I 'If a political foe must serve the Tenth district the Post prefers by long odds to lave a brainy and heroic man who heads ,he front of his column and receives his 'oes with naked steel rather than some lit;le politician whom it is necessary to flush >y kicking him out of the grass every time you go afield. However, when the war is >ver nobody will delight more to shiver a, ance against you and your political heresies than he who now shakes hands with you for the sake of our common country ind under our common flag." NEWS AND COMMENT. Afton, Algona's running mate for a state normal school, is now trying to work up a county high school. The Hotel Julian of Dubuque, a good average city hotel, will charge delegates to the republican state convention $3 to $4 a day. That is what the central committee gets for putting their meeting place over n Illinois. At the national sociological convention at Lake Bluff, Mo., last week a W. C. T. U. member put the following query, which was seriously discussed a whole afternoon: "Can a wearer of the white ribbon of the W. C. T. U. with propriety carry cold tea or lemonade to a picnic in a beer bottle?" We are glad to see this serous attention to the real issue. The long necked bottle is at the bottom of the mischief. Let it be abolished. Representative Anderson of Ruthven s out for this fusion nomination against Dolliver, and it will undoubtedly be be" tween him and Horace Mann. The MonticelloFxpresssays: "Those who know Lot Thomas well say that an excellent judge has been sacrificed from the bench to make a congressman who can nev- >r measure up to the ability or influence of Perkins." You can't always tell by the looks of a frog how far he will jump. Give Judge Thomas a chance. Frank Merriam of Manchester is a leading candidate for state auditor. But Mr. Haeberle of his county wants to be state treasurer. If Haeberle carries the county Merriam will be out of the race. The convention comes July 80 and interest in Capt. Hartshorn's candidacy is abated till it is known who will be in the field. Frank Blcknell says Senator Funk ought to be governor now to Interpret the s new revenue law. The state officials seem to be puzzled about some of its provisions. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Estherville has adopted city scales. Armstrong sold 19 binders in one day. Congressman •Dolliver will be at the Iowa Falls meeting of editors, Aug. 6. Rev. Case, who was a candidate for the Algona pulpit, has bought a home at Rockford and will retire. L. A. Klnne, ex-chief justice of Iowa, owns land in Emmet. He was at Armstrong last week looking at it, Chas. Larrabee is in Armstrong to spend the summer looking after his father's big farms in Eagle township. Mrs. Grimm has secured a divorce from her husband at Clear Lake and gets $2,500 alimony and their three children. The Britt News says Attorney Ripley's statements in Algona, about the Garner railway Into Kossuth are subject to revision, Geo. D. Osborne, nephew of D. Rice and Mrs. W. H. Ingham, was renora- inated for a fourth term as recorder, in Humboldt last week at the primaries. Two cars of cattle were recently stolen from Gov. Boles' farm In Grundy county and were shipped to Chicago. The matter was exposed before the thief succeeded in getting his money, but he made his escape. Armstrong Journal: A certain Armstrong girl says she will not wear check stockings because the government demands a two cent stamp to be affixed to checks before using, We have yet to hear from the check bicycle suit. CerroG,ordo county has probably the largest field of flax in the state. It is a 1200-aore field of J. G. Ltndons, occupying all of sections 29 and 82 in Union township except an eighty in the southwest corner seeded to tame grass. Corwlth will employ another teacher in their public schools hereafter, and the course now includes German, to be taught with the special purpose of enabling pupils to conduct all ordinary business transactions in that language. Al. Adams: Frank Tellier of Algona, eon of Eugene Tellier, has been a visitor in Humboldt the past day or two, Frapk i§ one of th young men of Algona, of fine intellect and a great student He has, lately been assisting his brother, who is county surveyor of Kossuth county, in land surveying. L. H. Mayne, In writing to his paper, the Emmetsburg Reporter, fromChlck- ama'uga, has the following account of an accident which happened to Private Charles Ridley who went to war from Esthervtlle: Last Monday Private Ridley met with quite a serious accident. He had steeped some sassafass tea and not thinking it very hot put a tight coyer on the can in which he had It. Immediately the cover was blown from the can by the steam and the hot water and steam were thrown in his face, scalding him severely. His left eye was badly injured and even the inside of his mouth and nostrils were so severely scalded as to be blistered, He spent the entire week in the division hospital but came back to the company Saturday morning. He will not be able for active duty for at least ten days. He Is a splendid fellow and the accident is deeply deplored by the entire company. POLITIOAL NOTES. Bancroft Register: As will be noticed by his card in this issue, Mr. J. B. Carr has decided on being a candidate for clerk of courts before the coming republican county convention. His candidacy was suggested and urged by party leaders here and outside the home precinct before he decided on the step, and he will go into the convention with a strong following. It is the understanding that the coming incumbent, Mr. Crose, will not be in the race this year, and we could suggest no more worthy successor than J. B. Carr of Bancroft. Algona Courier: Mr. T. J. Julian of Union has come out as a candidate for the office of county clerk, subject to the action of the republican county convention. Mr. Julian has for a number of years been a leading republican in his township, and is a gentleman in every respect capable of performing the duties of the office to which he aspires. The Courier hus ever found him a straight and honorable citizen. He has always been a regular and will- Ing worker for his party, and Is entitled to some recognition. The Courier wishes him success In the convention. Germanla Standard: By a notice elsewhere In this paper it will be seen that our well known and popular citizen, L. T. Clement, is a candidate for the office of county recorder. Mr. Clement is too well known to need any recommendation to our people, having been here over since the town was started, first teaching school and later being assistant cashier of Geo. Wells' bank for three years, or until it was organized into a state bank. He is certainly a capable man, fully competent to (ill the office he seeks. We believe that he will receive good support. : The Ledyard Leader notes the candidacy of H. M. Scovell for county auditor in Kossuth, and says: To the people of the north end of the county Mv. Scovell needs no introduction, and to those who do not know him we will say that a more competent man oould not be found. He has for a number of years been In the employ of the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad company as agent which is good evidence of his honesty and close attention to business. He is a straightforward, energetic young man and the Leader wishes him success in his aspirations, not simply because he is a resident of Ledyard, but because he will make the county one of the best officers it ever had. Bancroft Register: THE UPPER DES MOINES this week in a lengthy editorial urges the Algona republicans in the interest of party harmony and good politics to ask for but one place on the ticket, and in the light of local political history the suggestion is timely and good. But from conversations with republicans from variousoutside precincts we should not be surprised to see the convention unite on one Algona man, whether he comes out as an active candidate or not, and that is present Deputy Auditor Mart Weaver. Mr. Weaver has proved himself such an' obliging- and efficient deputy that there is a general desire on.the part of nearly everyone who has had any dealings with that office to express their appreciation of the many courtesies received at his hands in something, more substantial than words. We do not mean this as a suggestion to the convention; we do not know that Mr. Weaver will be a candidate even; but as a reflector of public opinion we may say, if public sentiment has been truthfully represented to us, the coming convention will break-into Algona for at least one candidate. Burt Monitor: The political pot locally, which has been as cold as an iceberg up to this time, shows signs of warming up a little. The only candidate, however, to announce himself as yet is T. J. Julian of Union township, who will make the run for clerk of courts, fy is generally understood that M. P. Weaver, now deputy aud- tor, will be out for auditor, and one of his opponents will betheLedyard man. F. E. Allen of this place and Elmer Hodgson of Fenton say they will be out for recorder, and there are likely to be others. It is understood that Crose and Randall would accept another term if tendered them, but the woods are full of such men. We don't know but we would take one of them ourselves under such conditions. Besides these three offices to.be filled we are to elect a county attorney, and one supervisor to succeed Wm. Burton of Ledyard. Mr. Burton is not likely to be his own successor, and the same may be said of Crose, Calkins, Randall and Raymond, though they are all good men and have been model officers. After the housecleaning we had last fall, it is quite safe to say the ticket will be scattered. But the grave responsibility of select ing good men will rest with the con vention. _______________ Go TO the Omaha exposition via the Northwestern line.

FOR A PERMANENT CAMP, ENORMOUS APPETITES DE?EtX)PEi) The B2d Will Remain at Chicka- manga Till Fall—Only One Man on the Sick GAMP THOMAS, Chjckamauga Park, Ga., July 16.—All prospects of our leaving here this summer have died out at last. There will be no more campaigning in Cuba until fall and the Porto Rico expedition will be under Gen. Brooke, who will 'take his corps, the First. It is universally belieyed that we are to stay here and everybody is acting accordingly. The brigadier- general and our colonel have both put in gravel streets in front of their quarters, and the officers are all putting floors in their tents. The men are building double-deck bunks in their quarters and every arrangement is being made for a permanent camp. Bath houses are being erected in our regiment. While the boys regret very much our inability to be in the fighting, they would rather stay here than go home. The rations are now very good, everybody is healthy and the drills are all in the early morning or late evening when it is cool. There are no duties in the heat of the day, in fact the boys have nothing to do but snooze and swap jokes from eight in the morning until 5:30 p. m. Some enormous appetites are being developed and everybody is getting as brown and tough (physically, not morally) as the steak which the (Jocks serve up to us. There is practically no sickness. Ellison Blackford Is the only real sick man we haye had, and he is rapidly improving under the tender care of his mother who arrived Saturday. His has been a peculiar case as well as a hard one. His first attack was simply typhoid, but it developed into menengitls and he was out of his head most of the time. The fever has about left him, but of course he is still very weak. Some of the boys have trouble with their stomachs but it never develops into anything serious. -S- -!--}Company F wishes to thank the people of Algona for the bandages, pillow- slips, housewives, jelly, etc., which were duly received and distributed. We are not only thankful for the things because they are so handy and so much needed, but because the sending shows that the people of Algona appreciate what we have given up for the defense of our country's honor, and also that we are remembered in our old home. May we always be as good a company as Algona is a city, and may Ho who called is forth richly reward -all who are i el ping to make our life as pleasant as inssible is the prayer of Company F, >2nd regiment, Iowa infantry vol- .inteers. •*-•*--»Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Patterson were visiting our company last Wednesday. They ran down from Nashville, where ;hey were attending the Y. P. S. C. E. invention. The Second batallion, to which Company F belongs, has at last made the necessary arrangements for its trial march. We will go in what is known as "heavy marching order." This means carrying everything on our backs. We will take shelter tents, one- half to each man, blankets and two days' rations, the latter in our haversacks, and leave here Tuesday morning. The batallion will march to the top of Lookout mountain and camp near Lulu Falls, We will stay there until Wednesday afternoon, when we will pack up and return. It is a much talked of and anticipated outing and will give us some idea of what it means to make a long hard march with our packs on our backs. It is only about six miles from Camp Thomas to the place, but it Is up the steep side of the mountain and will be a hard trip.

PARADE, New 80-Soctlon Procession Offered by These Noted Managers. Almost every exchange that reaches this office has something flattering to say of the wonderful arenio exhibition which Ringling Bros., America's mosi famous amusement purveyors, are p senting to the public this season, and particularly of the new and novel free street parade which these progressive managers have organized for the pres ent season.

Last week we noted the arrest of a fo\ing man in Prairie township by heriff Christensen and his removal to Spencer. The News tells of his crime: ["he preliminary hearing of Charles Sreeley, charged with stealing wheat rom O. E. Shaffer, of Waterford, took place before Justice Patterson Friday. !n the absence of the county attorney, ,he state was represented by W. W. Cornwall and the defendant by V. W. 3uck. After hearing the evidence the ustice held the accused to appear be- ore the grand jury at the September m of the district court, fixing his jond at $300. The evidence shows that Greeley and a partner named Nlseley, on the night of Feb. 22d, last, went to Shaffer's granary, loaded their wagon with wheat, and the following day muled It to Harris, Iowa, and sold it, •eceiving $20.25 for the same, The wagon box in which they hauled the wheat leaked, and Mr. Shaffer was able to trace the thieves by the grain strewn along the road they traveled. Greeley earned that a warrant was out for hi's arrest and made a hasty exit from the country. Sheriff Lewis got on his trail and pursued him through Indiana and Illinois, and finally captured him near Algona, Iowa. Greeley, who is a young man about 20 year's old, makes very light of the whole affair, but it nay impress him more seriously before he is through with it. REOEPTION FOB BEV. BOND. Heartily Welcomed with His New Bride to His Home. On Wednesday, June 29, occured the marriage of Rev. O. M. Bond of Algona circuit and Miss Leeds of Cherokee, Iowa. The bride is the daughter of a well-to-do farmer living near Cherokee and a lady of many accomplishments, and one who is able to take an active part in his life work. Rev. Bond is doubtless well known by many of our readers, is a very zealous, successful young minister of sterling ability, is a pastor of the true type, much loved and appreciated by his flock. The newly married couple returned July 12, and a reception was given them at the home of Mr. John Hulburt. About 100 quests were present, including the Burt Cornet band which received many compliments on the excellent music which they furnished at intervals during the evening.

EXPBESS COMPANY ENJOINED. Judge Quarton Orders the .Express Company In Algona to Put On Revenue Stamps. Geo. E. Clarke has had a temporary injunction issued against the United States Express company restraining it from compelling the sender to pay the one cent revenue tax on parcels. He asks a permanent injunction and also damages. The agent in Algona refused to receipt for a package he wanted sent to Forest City unless he paid for the revenue stamp. He refused to put on the stamp and began suit. That he will secure a permanent injunction is certain. In his petition he sues on behalf of the town. pieces, went down cellar and killed a dog that was there. In its passage it ripped the shoes off of Mr. Daniels and he and his wife were partially paralyzed. This looks like a big story, it is true and the truth of it is evi- but it is true and the truth of it is evident in the shoes and the condition of the feet on which they were.
