The Courier still insists that J. W. Sullivan circulated the testimonial to Mr. Crose for the sole purpose of making him clerk a fourth time and of shutting out other candidates, and that City Attorney Bonar and S. E. MoMahon, along with THE UPPER DES MOINES, signed it for the same purpose. Under some circumstances THE UPPER DES MOINES would accept the Courier's view and assist in spreading it as widely as possible. We certainly could afford to have this entire judicial district believe that the democratic candidate for judge and the democratic city attorney of Algona had endorsed a republican official for a fourth term for the purpose of shutting out a democratic candidate. But the facts 'are that promote. The ease is not so aggravated when the Swir wards of Algona are substitute*} for the ftfur northwest townships, fcwasss* the proportion of population Is greater, and because there seems to be x pppatar consent to the idea thai bwaBse p^Scials have to come to the county seat say way they might as well be chosen at or near it. But it is aggravated enough to make suicidal politics of It. Theoretically considered it makes no difference where candidates come from if they are qualified. But politically considered It makes a great difference, and conventions are held and delegates are chosen for political purposes. The mere fact that the Herald suggests an organization of the outside townships against Algona as the proper remedy, is a sufficient hint to the county seat that its delegates haye other duties in the county convention than to die In the ditch for every nomination that Is to be made on the theory that they have the abstract right to vote for whom they please. Hold the Philippines. It is very doubtful if public sentiment will sustain the return of the Philippine islands to Spain. This Is a war for the spread of good government, and the Philippines offer fully as desirable an opportunity as Cuba or Porto Rico. Tho insurgents have risked everything to escape Spanish misrule, and ought to win. An independent government, a protectorate by leading powers, transfer to England or even Germany, or annexation are either of them preferable to any dealings with Spain. Tama Jim Wilson, Iowa's member of the cabinet, favors annexation. Tama Jim, we believe, voices the sentiment of the state. Bismarck is Dead. The man who made the German empire has passed away. This is his one magnificent achievement. He was not far sighted in many things, but he saw the destiny of the fatherland with an undimmed vision and he had a will of iron. He was Europe's most powerful personality since Napoleon. last ( week »and held under bonds to await the action of the grand jury because he refused to dfath his cellar. He is charged with maintaining a nuisance. B Britt News: The thanks of a larger portion of the Britt delegation to the circus at Algona last Tuesday are due to the Hon. Geo. C.

While music has been taught heretofore to some extent in the schools, it had not CASE TAKEN INTO COURT. HBLSELL AFTEE HIS StANDEBEEl. Causes the Arrest of 3. J. Bruce for Criminal Wbel—Press Opinion on the Situation. this all belongs to the small peanuts of politics which the Courier munches every fall, while it maintains its apparently deliberate purpose of making everything cheap and nasty that it touches. The testimonial to Mr. Grose was gotten up by the bar in entire good faith, was non-partisan, was wholly deserved, and was creditable alike to the county clerk whose good work is known all over this part of the state, and to the lawyers who suggested and who signed it, both democrats and republicans. . THE UPPER DES MOINES has no doubt that the Courier is anxious to have Mr, Sullivan honored by the judicial district, although it has not said as much io his behalf as papers in other counties, nor as much as his merits warrant. It is, of course, singular that in the second issue after his name had been proposed it should make no comment on the remarkable endorsement he has received,-but should devote its leading editorial to putting a false and misleading construction upon a series of resolutions he was mainly instru- Pcace Prospects. Sagasta has given no intimation as to what Spain will do with President McKinley's ultimatim. The president . mental in having endorsed. Whether the Courier is acting in good faith, however, or is trying to hit Mr. Sullivan over THE UPPER DES MOINES' shoulders, will make no difference so far as he is concerned in the district. He is known as honest, independent, and able, and he will be tendered the democratic nomination for judge by acclamation, and he will make a fitronger run than any other democratic lawyer in northern Iowa. His action in giving full expression of his appreciation of the good work of a republican official is characteristic, and serves to add a dignity and decency to local politics which the Courier seems to be unable to understand or appreciate. demands Cuba, Porto Rico, and some smaller Islands, the Philippines to be disposed of later by joint commission. NEWS AND COMMENT. Lafe Young lectured in Des Moines Saturday evening on his experiences in Cuba. He is well over his fever. Mayor-Quick of Swea City is talked of as Lot Thomas' opponent on the fusion tinket. Mr. Quick, a few years aj?o, was a school teacher in Kossuth. His family lives at Lu Verne. It would look as though CyrenusCole had won the first round at Cedar Rapids. He has driven Fred Faulkes off to a summer resort to recruit. Cyrenus is fighting- for honest paving in Cedar Rapids, and if there is any righteous war in these days, it is war on dishonest municipal contract work. Mr. Faulkes will find that the Dutch blood is fighting blood.

Webster City Freeman: Will F. Smith went to Sioux City last night with a view of accepting a position on the daily Journal. The Freeman hopes Will may be fortunate enough to get a place that will pay liberally for his time and work, and feels sure he will be equal to the holding down of a good position. Esthervllle Democrat: An old lady over in Algona has a hen which laid an egg with the letters G. S. H. Inscribed upon It. She took the egg to prayer meeting to have the meaning explained, and after much discussion a pious old lady jumped and said it meant, "Give Spain H 1" The mealing closed with three cheers for Dewey. Fred Gilbert has two Important shooting events booked for August. The Beacon says Rolla Helkes of 'Dayton, Ohio, has challenged Fred for the American E. C. nnd Shultz Powder Go's, trophy, which carries with it tho championship of America on targets. The contest will occur in Chicago on the ]3th. In return Fred has challenged Helkos for the cast iron medal, one of the liye bird champion trophies of America. The time and place for the last event has not yet been fixed. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. The Midland Monthly for August is replete with finely illustrated descriptive papers, personal sketches of noted persons, excellent sketches and pictures from Camp Merritt, good fiction, an interesting report of the Denver convention of Federated Clubs, and the usual high grade matter in its Women's Club Department, Homo Themes and Editorial Comment. -*- -f- -f- The August number of the Century has a number of features of special timeliness. Mrs. Mary Bradford Crowninshield writes a striking romance of a Spanish- American dictator, the title of her story being "Sangre do Cristo." Frederick A.

Walter Russell gives the impressions of "An Artist with Admiral Sampson's Fleet," with sketches from nat- Judge Helsell has had J. J. Bruce of Pocahontas arrested for criminal libel. Bruce is the Pocahontas man who has charged that an official bond was changed in the Pocahontas court house and that Helsell was the man who did it. Hoskins published Bruce's charges in the Sioux Rapids Republican, and he also is under arrest. Bruce waived examination and will meet the grand jury Aug. 15. Hoskins resisted but was bound over under $2,000 bonds. From the reports of the hearing in the Hoskin's case it seems evident that both Bruce and Hoskins are likely to reach jail. Below we give an opinion of Bruce from the Pocahontas Record, which is published at the county seat where the alleged transfer- ing was done. We also give Senator Funk's opinion of Hoskins, who is doing the dirty work in his Sioux Rapids Republican. BRUCE AT HOME. Pocahontas Record: For the past 25 years the county has been afflicted with the sour Tribune, now that it is in possession of the facts, Should ask the pardon of its readers for permitting such an assault to be made in its columns upon an honorable man. Since the above was written Mr. Helsell has had Bruce arrested for criminal libel. Local political Notes. Hurt Monitor: The petition circulated by members of the bar to have B. F.

Congressman Hull is nominated by acclamation. In this connection the Cedar Rapids Republican incidentally refers to him as a coming senatorial aspirant. That was the rumor at Cedar Rapids last year.

Now when Mr. Bailey propounds anything in the conundrum line it is quite useless to try and guess it.

There are 15 counties embraced in the territory of this association, and it is claimed to be the most successful association in the state. Meetings are held semi-annual- I.V for the consideration of topics of mutual interest. At the next meeting Hon. Henry Watterson of Louisville, (Ky.) Courier is one of the speakers Senator A. B. Funk is another. Hon. J. P. Dolliver will be present and it is likely he will speak. Miss Minnie Murray, the famous "Woman in White" who so nearly stampeded the Chicago democratic convention, is among the after-dinner speakers. An exceptionally good program has been prepared and the convention will close with a boat ride up the river and a banquet tendered the association by the business men of Iowa Falls. Folio wing are some paragraphs from a very interesting letter written by Will Salisbury to his parents, which they kindly permit THE UPPER DES MOINES to publish. Will and Leslie Tillotson visited Lookout Mountain and he tells about the trip: We bear rumors this morning that we are to he among the number to go to Porto Rico, but will not believe it till we get on the train. I hope it Is so for nothing Is so tiresome as sitting around in camp the way we have done for three months. I think the war Is nearly over, but even if it is there is no telling when we will get home. Last Monday Leslie Tillotson and myself secured a pass and went to Chattanooga. WeleftLytle station at 8 o'clock and reached the city about 8-30 After wandering around awhile 'we' took the car for Sherman Heights and Missionary Ridge. We expected to ride clear up on the ridge but in this we were disappointed as the train simply wound around the foot of the hill for several miles and then returned to the city. As It vvas getting late we did not get off, but saw what we could from the car window. We had a very good ride for 10 cents even if we didn't see much. After returning to the city we went to the Rossmore hotel for dinner The dinner seemed the best part of the day to us after subsisting on camp fare for three months. When we went in we gave the darkey waiter a small "tip" and he fell all over himself in his anxiety to please. I can't remember when I have eaten so much atone meal, but like all good things It finally had its end. After dinner we took the car for the foot of Lookout Mountain On arriving there we went to the top over incline No. 2. The trip up the mountain is a hair-raising experience. The road works on the principal of a draw well. There are two cars fastened together with cables and running on tracks side by side. When one goes up the other comes down. The whole road IB very steep, but the last quarter of a mile seems to go straight up. It makes a person grit his teeth and hang on with both hands. On arriving at the top we were surprised to see a comparatively level plain with a large number of houses and hotels. After a few minutes walk we arrived at Point Lookout, Here one of the grandest scenes in the world presented itself to our view. Just below us was the Tennessee river, 1700 feet wide but looking like a small creek. To our right was Chattanooga, and away in the distance were the mountains. A short distance from the point is where the Unions scaled the cliff and drove the rebels back. They lashed long poles together and one man went up hauling a rope ladder with him on which the others afterwards came up. It gave me a very queer feeling to stand on the historical old mountain where the "Battle above the Clouds" took place. After seeing all there was to be seen at this place we took the car and went down the mountain about two miles where we saw the Natural Bridge, the Camel's Back, Old Man of the Mountain, Fat Man's Squeeze Telephone Rock and many other interesting things too numerous to mention. It was now getting late, so we started back to the city, going down the incline and experiencing much the same sensation as when we went up. After reaching the city we made some purchases and after a lunch took the train for the park where we arrived about 8 o'clock Ured but satisfied that we had seen more in one day than we ever saw before in our lives in the same length of time. I took several views during the trip a\d hope they will be good. * Th voters elected dharlton nd defeated ruce Charlton running ahead of his ticket an Bruce away behind.

A. Clock, a former Algonian who built the Clark Peck home on north Thorington, is in a bad way at Hampton. The Recorder tells about it: Henry A. Clock, after earring a" gun three years in the army and hunting all sorts of game with all kinds of firearms for nearly forty years, was the victim of a gun accident yesterday morning that will leave his right hand crippled for life. It was a double bar- reled shot gun, supposed of course not ? iV 8 1( ? a , de( ?> and stood in the bedroom at Mr. Clock's home.
