CONGRESSMAN DOLLIVER is in Washington attending to some river land matters. He talked with President McKinley and afterwards told the newspaper men that this government would undoubtedly hold Manilla and the island of Luzon, it is situated on. Manilla overruled as he was in the annexation of Hawaii. But he is a great man, a credit to our American governmental system, independent, honest, clearheaded. He should be kept in congress as long as his inclination is to. stay there. ^ School House Location. THE UPPER DES MOINES wishes to preface all of its suggestions as to the location of the new school by the statement that whatever the board finally decides to do will be accepted by it without discussion. It appreciates very fully the difficulties any board labors under in locating a public building, and it has great confidence that five men could not be selected in Algona better qualified to make a decision than Messrs. Butler, Cooke, Cowles, Swot- ting and Sullivan. With this prefatory statement, however, it desires to call the board's attention to the suggestion made last week that the central building be refitted as the permanent high school building of the town, and that the new building be made a Fourth ward building. The advantages of this plan, if it should be considered practicable, may be briefly enumerated: It would make a number of sites available for the ward school that cannot be considered for a high school, and thereby give the board a chance to buy at a reasonable price. The Guy Taylor property, the Yemans corner, and half a dozen handsome spots' suggest themselves in the Fourth ward. It would keep the high school in what is really our central school building, and the one that will always be most central unless the new building is built very near it. It would keep the principal of the schools at the central building, where the largest number of teachers and scholars are congregated, and be likely to make expense of superintendence of the schools as a whole much less. As we understand it the board has not considered this plan feasible, because the partitions in the central building are not properly located for high school purposes, and as the roof rests on the partitions they cannot well be moved. It is well known that the roof is very cheaply constructed, and already a considerable bill of expense is run up each year in repairs on it. A permanent roof would be a matter of economy for the district. It will have to be put on some time, and if put on now, a very few hundred dollars would make a model high school department in the most desirable location that </an be suggested for it. The board would then be free to build a handsome ward building in the Fourth ward, where one is needed, as handsome as it has built in the Third, and so begin a system of ward schools around a common center. The $17,000 voted woul d more than cov- predate this delicate advise the Courier peanuts, and to come out and discuss men and measures on their merits. Spain's Reply Still Held. Spain has replied to the president's proposals. The reply is in Washington but was not given out yesterday. The impression is that Spain haggles on terms, and that further negotiations are probable. In the meantime our armies are occupying Porto Rico. The commanders at Santiago led by Roosevelt made such a statement of conditions there that our army is being brought north at once. The 52nd Iowa is to go to Porto Rico. A bloody battle was fought near Cavite July 31. The volunteer troops repulsed the Spaniards with heavy loss. Our army lost nine killed and 47 wounded. ^^^^^^^^^^ J. W. SULLIVAN is justly entitled to the honorable recognition accorded him by the judicial district. He would make an impartial and able judge. He will not seriously consider, however, the possibility of defeating Judge Quarton. His nomination is in the nature of a graceful compliment. IOWA WAS A, B.

The county records show that Judge Thomas has been investing heavily in Palo Alto real estate.

The petition is being very generally signed. Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Baker, M. Starr's Emmetsburg relatives, are back from Canada. Mr. Baker tells the Democrat the wonder is how farmers make a living in Canada and the eastern states They enjoyed their trip but could not be induced to go back there to live. and the harbor are practically all there is of the Philippines.

Added to that they have put up A. S. Garretson, the Sioux City boomer, in the Eleventh. Garretson is the man who developed the Sioux City bubble, and as a Napoleon of finance was the greatest man the west has produced. He became a silverite after his bubble .. bursted. _ THEODORE ROOSEVELT, of the Rough Biders, stirred up the protest that led President MoKinley to overrule Secretary Alger and order the soldiers to be eent to the north out of the yellow fever :hole at Santiago.

Editors at Iowa Falls. Iowa Falls entertained the editors of the Upper Des Moines association last week. Iowa Falls has the reputation of being the handsomest small city in Iowa, and it is well deserved. fys hos pitality is not exceeded by its good looks. The entertainment consisted o carriage drives, boat rides, and the customary banquet. The program in eluded a masterly address on Abraham Lincoln by Henry Watterson, a paper of great value by Judge Weaver on the relation of newspapers to the courts, a discriminating memorial to J. Fred Myers by Senator Funk. All in all it was one of the best meetings ever held by the association. Everybody came away with pleasant recollections of Iowa Falls and its hospitable people. THE nomination of C. E. Cohoon at Emmetsburg to run against Judge Helsell practically ends the judicial fight in this district. Neither Cohoon'a record, ability, or location will appeal to the men who will have to be relied on to defeat Helsell. It is almost certain that both democrats and republicans will support Helsell in the west aide of the district. Cohoon's nomination, if a serious contest was expected, a most singular piece of political The Courts Will Decide. The Sioux Rapids Republican quotes what Rev. Marsh said at Algona to THE UPPER DES MOINES about Judge Helsell, and adds: . " We called Rev. Marsh's attention to the interview reported above and he tells us that it is practically true. He also admits to us that he knows practieally nothing about the troubles between Helsell and us and what he does is hearsay." The Republican then adds a lot about Pocahontas Record: The old man who has been confined to the county jail for the past 10 days for stealing some articles in Fonda was turned out on Sunday, and since that time he has been making the jail his home voluntarily. As he is weak minded an effort is being made to find out where he belongs in order that he may not become a county charge. It is thought that he belongs up in Kossuth county. Bailey: A Wesley girl saw a fly walking on the ceiling, and while she was gazing at it her best fellow stole a kiss. This set her to watching for flies more than she had done and the kissing became nearly "unanimous." Inad- vertantly she told some of the other girls about it and now the Wesley girls all go along the streets looking up at the clouds, trying to locate a fly. It is a sort of " rubber neck" but very DOD- ular in Wesley. ' H Emmetsburg Tribune: Al. Falken- hainer, formerly with W. G. Henry of this city, now in the drug business at Algona, was in the city last Friday putting in a line of extracts which the nrm O f which he is a partner has been manufacturing for the past three years. The E. & F. extracts, as they are called, nave met with universal success in Kossuth county, and no doubt will have a large sale here in Emmetsburg where A . is well known. F. A. Small has taken the line and says that he will guarantee that each bottle will give perfect satisfaction or money refunded. Qeo. Holloway's Jumpers. Bancroft Register: G. F. Holloway will soon have an attraction in his pair of white Arabians. He has a chute Bade at the swimming hole by the tank sufficiently deep, The first Iowa soldier killed in the war was A. B. Underwood of Eldora, a brother of Mrs. E. G. Seymour of Germania. He was in the charge at El Caney. Battery A, Second artillery, otherwise known as Grimes' battery, of which Underwood was a member, was ordered to make the attack on El Caney. A bursting shell left him d >•'. on the field. He was the second son CM the late Senator Dr. M. Under wood and Mrs. S. A. Underwood. He was born in Eldora, and there spent his days until manhood. He was a graduate of the Eldora high school, class of '90, spent some years at Cornell college, studied law in the office of Huff & Ward, and took a special course in the law department of the state university at Iowa City. He was possessed pf a fine education, being especially bright in literature. The following letter written by him June 24, just before landing on Cuban soil, was printed in the Germania Standard, and is an interesting contribution to the literature of the war: OFF SANTIAGO DE CUBA, ON BOARD STEAM TRANSPORT BERKSHIRE, June 24, 1898.—My Dear Mother and Brothers, All: I am so very sorry I could not write before, but you know of course it has been impossible to get any mall away. We went on board at Port Tampa, Fla., June 7, and pulled out into the bay, waiting for the other transports to load. We all had orders to sail at 1 o'clock, p. m., but the order was revoked, and we pulled back to the dock and unloaded our horses. We all (that is the soldiers on our boat, as did all the others) remained on board only unloading the horses to rest them. Then came delay after delay, and we lay at the dock for a week. Monday, June 13, we again steamed down the bay to quarantine, about 28 miles. Tuesdny 32 transports in three columns, headeo by the gunboats Helena, Castine and Annapolis, steamed out of the bay for Cuba. It was the grandest sight I ever saw. As far as you could see the lines of transports extended, the band playing "Yankee Doodle," "Star Spangled Banner," etc. The gunboats Morel, Bancroft and the Hornet also went with us. We went slow, very slow. At Key West the battleship Indiana joined us. There were but few seasick and I was not among the number. The sea was exactly the color of a tub of water fixed with bluing for clothes when you wash —the deepest, darkest blue you can imagine. We saw great numbers of flying fish, dolphins and sharks. But, ye gods, how slow we werel Eight days it took us to go to where we are today. When we came in sight of the island we could see the Copiah mountains like a bank of clouds on the horizon. "Just like Arizona," the old soldiers said. But when we got closer to land we could see how green and pretty the mountains were—very, very beautiful. We could smell the flowers in the breeze, and Cuba looked the prettiest place I ever saw. The morning of June 22 we sailed into Baiquiri bay and lay still to await developments. We did not wait long, for the battleships Indiana, New York and Columbia, all from Sampson's fleet at Santiago 12 miles farther down the coast, opened fire on the hills, and we lay within about two miles and watched the cannonading. There was no reply from the hill, so at about 10:30 a. m. gona UPPER DCS Monroes we note that our former citizen W. J. Crammond i» a candidate for recorder of Kossnth county. There are no better republicans and few more deserving men than W. J. Crammond, and if his fellow citizens in Kossuth allow victory to perch upon his banner tbere will be no mistake made. The Safeguard at this his old home wishes this much at least for him. A GOOD SALE. at Algona School House Bonds do Straight Four Per Cent. The school board got six bids on the new bonds sold Saturday, all of them as good or better than the best bid at the last sale. The bid then that was accepted was 4i per cent, interest and $210 bonus. The bonds now are sold at four per cent, flat to the First National bank of Chicago, with $135 paid by the district for printing the bonds and some incidental expenses to the bank. Thi& is almost four per cent, straight, and is so much lower than any previous sale of public paper hers that it seems quite remarkable. It was not so many years ago that government bonds did not sell any better. The bids for the. bonds were as follows: Kane & Co., Minneapolis, 4i per cent, and $105 bonus; Harris & Co., Chicago, 4| per cent, and $206; First National bank, Chicago, 4i per cent, and $210 bonus, or four cent, and $135 paid by the district; Hayes & Son, Cleveland, 4i per cent, and $200 paid by the district; F. M. Taylor & Co., Algona, 4i per cent, and $100 bonus; Mason Lewis & Co., Chicago, four per cent., $217 to be paid by district. 8EMI-LOOAL NEWS NOTES. One of the hottest post-office contests in the state has been waged in Webster City for a year. Today, Aug. 10, the present incumbent's term expires. Congressman Dolliver has said he should name a successor by that time. The fight has split the republicans throughout the county, helped to defeat the republican ticket last fall, and if all stories are correct filled up this spring's primaries with democrats. It has been a fight the county will not get over in years. -t- H- -r- Old time friends of Re.v. J. W. Innes will read with interest this note in the Nevada Representative: Rey. and Mrs. J. W.

WHISKEY AT THE BOTTOM Of If, Drunken John Krneger's Team and Wagon Cut to Pieces—Miraculous Escape of Krueger. The Northwestern road Saturday night had a narrow escape from one of the most disastrous wrecks in the history of the state. The 11 o'clock train north struck a team and Wagon on the bridge about three miles north of town A drunken farmer named Krueger had driven out onto the bridge in the dark and the engineer, coming around a curve, had no time to stop a heavy train.

Mr. Gruwell, who was one of the company, not being fully satisfied that gold could not be found there, remained on the other side. He will go farther into the interior. The return trip of Messrs.

WHEN the Courier started out to "have fun" with the bar resolutions which J. W, Sullivan presented it prob* ably did not realize the predicament it was getting into. But after it did realize it it should have had courage enough to say so. Instead, however, it persists, at the expense of Mr. Sullivan, Mr. Mo- Mahon and Mr. Bonar, in trying to cover up its own discomfiture, Jt now says that as democrats are not looking for a republican nomination they could sign an endowment of Mr. Grose with in*, punlty. That means that Mr. Sullivan drafted tb,e resolutions and spent; an hour or more in. presenting them to the bar as a smart trick on republicans. Those who know Mr, Sullivan will ap^ and is teaching the handsome whites he "high dive" act. That they will ome day outrival Carver's noted horses is evident from the way they now take to their work, all that is necessary being to conduct them to the entrance of the chute; they immediately, and without any urging, hurry to the end and with their fore feet stretched out together plunge into the bath with all the apparent delight ever exhibited by the small boy who has mistaken the path to the school house and brous-ht u P. at the river. The platform from which they now take their daily plunee is only about eight feet above the surface of the water, but the fearless way they go at it makes certain that with no aco dents they can easily be lead UD to a leap higher than that made by "Powder Face." The beauty and perfect form of the splendid animals, they ceased firing and commenced to land the infantry. It seems the Spaniards had thrown up breastworks, but when they saw the neat coming they were so frightened they left the whole thing. This Baiquiri bay, as I have said before, is about 12 miles from Santiago, so as yet we have not gone as far west along the coast as that. You have no idea how crowded the boats were. There were 1,300 on some, and 'so very hot and filthy have the boats become that it is terrible. We are living on three to six hardtacks at a meal a cup of coffee, and canned meat that has laid In the hold until it is putrid. There is little sign of getting ashore today, and here it is the eighteenth day we have been on the boat. Our horses were unloaded by shoving them out the port holes and letting them swim ashore. The harbor is a very deep one, 80 feet deep right near shore. The first horses, instead of swimming ashore, swam out to sea and were drowned. Then they towed the rest to shore with ropes, So goes war. Today there has been a skirmish up in the mountains, but we have not received particulars, yet we know that some of the First infantry were killed. On shore there are cocoanuts in abundance. A boat that went over to look after the horses of one of the batteries brought back a whole boat load. There are tamarands, guava, bananas, sapodilos, alligator pears, pineapples, sugar apples, mangroves, mammee apples and oranges, all native fruit. I have been feeling first rate, only the heat is very bad; there is much law suit that will interest bicyclers. Albert A. Bradley has brought a damage suit against Julius Andree Sons' company of Milwaukee, claiming $5,000 of that firm. Bradley alleges that he bought a bicycle made and sold by the firm from one of their local dealers, and that on June 2, 1898, while riding on a smooth and level road, the bicycle broke down, throwing him forcibly to the ground, seriously and permanently injuring- him. It is claimed that the wheel was sold under a guaranty and fell short of the guaranty; that Bradley was damaged in the physician's and nurse's bills, loss of time and permanent injury to the extent of $5,000.

Also under the new rule if box rent is not paid by the 10th of the month following the quarter the box will be declared vacant is one of the curious things. He lives four miles east and two miles north of Burt, and had been in town with Wm Bahr, who is a relative. He started home with Bahr and then left him He drove north to the old John Henry farm just east of W. B. Carey's, now occupied by A. E. Johnson, and then feU out of his wagon All the Johnsons could understand from him was that he lived west, and they turned his team about and started him south, a boy going along to get him over the railroad crossing. A halter came down and the boy got out to put it up, when Krueger whipped his horses into a run and left him. At the railway crossing instead of keeping the road he turned onto the track and crossed the cattle guard. How the team did this will never be known. He then whipped them down the track fully-80 rods south to the bridge. Here they got far enough on the bridge to drag the wagon over the abutment. The Johnsons on the Henry place followed Krueger when they knew he had gone on the track. M. E. Johnson, who lives on the Carey farm, hearing someone driving apparently in his pasture, also came out. Meanwhile the north train had left Algona and could be seen approaching. The Johnsons i oun , d Krueger sitting on the bridge totally helpless. They dragged him out into the field, got the wagon back from the bridge and got the horses cut apart. But they had no time to do more and one of them went across the bridge waving a lantern to warn the engineer^ It was evidently too late. The engine hit the first horse Ivine across the bridge. The second was a few feet nearer the end. It struck the wagon out on the embankment. It passed all in safety but three cars left the track after getting safely across. The bridge is fully 60 feet high, and gone off a big train and the livery. mail put in the general de- Dr. Yetter was chosen a director of the Clear Lake camp meeting last week.

H- -t- iu wo «u d nave piled over into the ravine. The engine and a few cars went on to Burt and came back to put the derailed cars on the track. It was supposed that Krueger had been put aboardT But at Burt no trace could be got of him and next morning the train south had watchers on both sides looking for him along the track, where it was supposed he had fallen. But Krueger had not been put on the cars. He gave everybody the slip and next morning found himself near Daniel Rice's without much recollection of anything. He then walked home and told his boy he had left his team at Bahr's. The bov came down for it, learned the facts, ana expressed what seems to be the common sentiment when he said it was pity that it was not the old man instead of the horses that was run over Krueger claims that he took only two drinks in Algona, and that a pint of whiskey went around for four men. He was hopelessly drunk anyway. The team was cut into mince meat, even the harness being chopped to little pieces. Those who were there say it was pitiable to hear the horses call for help with that peculiar whinny that horses use when alarmed. It was a splendid team, one of those faithful teams that would allow a drunken old fool to drive them out into such a place. I h ,T? 18 not an ani mal heaven there should be, and it ought to be about 10 degrees higher than the heaven Krueger has any chance for. The engineer as he looked at the wreck said it was a close call. He said he might try to clear a bridge like that a thousand times and never come out as lucky again. OHEAP EXOUBSION BATES.
