It says what it does because it believes that there should be a plain understanding at this time that the results of the county convention will be abided by this fall. The Allen Case. . In 1896 one Allen of Dickinson county was tried before Judge Quarton at Spirit Lake, charged with seducing a young woman. Allen's defense, which he introduced witnesses to sustain, was that the girl was common property. One of these witnesses was O'Farrell, who after going on the stand refused to answer the questions put to him. Judge Quarton made up his mind that if O'Farrell was telling the truth he ought to be able to tell it more rapidly, and finally asked some questions himself. The supreme court, taking the purely technical view of the criminal law which has let many a rascal go unpunished, reversed the judge's sentence, which was two years in the penitentiary. This is the case which the Courier says shows Judge Quarton's unfitness for the bench. Without any comment whatever THE UPPER DBS MOINES will give the record of Judge Quarton's questions as JudgeKInne reports them in the opinion, and let its readers judge. If we are not much mistaken Judge Kinne's own record will strengthen Judge Quarton in the estimation of the people, for the people have more than once been made weary by the refusal of witnesses to tell what they know. It will be refreshing to them to find a judge who once in a while insists on knowing the truth and on having the jury know it. Here is Judge Kinne's statement of the facts: \Ve discover no act of the judge FQuar- ton] which prejudiced the defendant, save the matter we are about to refer to. In the course of the examination of the defendant's witness, O'Farrell, counsel for the defendant were attempting to show by the witness specific acts of unchastity on the part of the woman prior to her alleged seduction. The witness was asked if he had sexual intercourse with the woman at a certain time and place, and failed to answer, whereupon the question was repeated, and the witness appealed to the court to know if he was compelled to answer the question, and was told that he must answer it Thereafter the following occurred: The Court: You may answer that question and answer it promptly now. You know whether you did or didn't, and you don't have to study an hour to know that fact. § . Did you? (No answer.) . Answer it by yes or no. (No answer.) The Court: Are you going to answer that question! A. I don't have to answer it. Court: Yes you do have to answer it. Mr. Reporter, take this question. Have you been talked with before you came here by counsel for Mr. Allen, Mr. Allen, or any other person as to the answers you should make to the questions here? Mr. Parker: Is that proper by the court? The Court: You can make any objections you may want to. Mr. Parker. Mr. Parker: We object to that as improper, incompetent and irrelevant. It is an improppr and unwarranted question to be asked by the court. Court: Overruled. Answer the question, sir. A. I talked with Mr. Allen. Q. How many talks have you had with him? A. One, I think. Q. One; but only one? Did you have any talk with him or any one of counsel for defendant that you should hesitate in an swering these question? Court: Answer the question. A. No sir. Court: Now answer the question that has been asked you. Read that, Mr. Reporter." have been cooped in and in the end crashed. Jefferson saw this and threw away all his theories about the constitution to shut Napoleon out of America. We see it now and are go- Ing to follow our race instinct and make an opening for freedom in the far east. It is our right, our duty, our destiny. It is idle to argue about it. It is in the very nature of things. Produce the Record. The Courier says: " None but unwise friends of Mr. Quarton would open up a discussion of his supreme court record. Indeed the less they discuss him in any way the better it is for him." Judge Wade went on the bench at the same time Judge Quarton did. The Courier is a great friend of Judge Wade. THE UPPER DBS MOINES hereby challenges the Courier to compare the records of the two judges In the supreme court. It dares not do it and publish the result. Misquoting Gov. Shaw. An attempt has been made to create prejudice against Gov. Shaw on account of an alleged interview with him published in a Chattanooga paper at the time he visited Camp Thomas. Gov. Shaw says he was not interviewed at all, talked less than a minute with the reporter, and did not make the statements credited to him, which were in effect that the water at Camp Thomas was good enough. Gov. Shaw at Washington on his return suggested better sanitation to the war authorities, although the fever epidemic had not then broken out. Since then he has been very active and it is largely due to his efforts and those of Congressman Dolliver, who immediately upon his return from the east took the matter up, that the boys were ordered north. The State Leader, democratic, gives a fair statement of how the return of the 52d to Des Moines was brought about: "The order to return the regiment to this city is undoubtedly due to the efforts of the congressional delegation, the state officers and citizens in general to hove some steps taken to save them from the inroads of typhoid and intermittent malaria which has been, filling the hospitals at Chickamauga. Gov. Shaw, Thursday, telegraphed the war department demanding that the troops be returned to this state or to some northern camp in view of the fact that they are not to go to Porto Rico, and Adjutant General Bycrs addressed a communication to the department of the same tenor but which gave a detailed description of the horrors of the camp us he saw them. Congressman Hull, Thursday, made a personal call on the officers of the war department to urge that something be done for the regiment, and submitted the reports showing the number in the hospitals for the consideration of the department officials. Congressmen Dolliver and Perkins, from whose districts the regiment came, also joined in the request, sending personal telegrams to the department and to the president. In addition to these requests the mayors of the several cities forwarded to the department protests against longer exposing the regiment to the dangers of the unsanitary camp in Georgia." . Very Bad Politics. The following item appears in the gwea City Herald: +'The Herald indulged in a little pleasantry a couple of weeks since by inquiring if A. D. Clarke was grooming Mr. Swet- ting's candidacy for attorney, and A. D. dropped in the office this week, requesting ue v) give this answer: 'He is not only not supporting him, but won't vote for him }f he is nominated.' " But lor the Herald's positive announcement we should very much 4o«bt Mr- Clarke's requesting or au« thorizjng any such statement as the &boye. Mr- Swetting is fully entitled toy experience and ability as a lawyer And by character as a citizen to his party SWPpprt If he ie fairly nominated, and It ie idle tp bold eonventippe If Mr. Clarke's attitude i e endorsed, THE »ot This is the sum and substance of the supreme court's complaint taken from the official report, which may be found •on page 274 of the 69th Northwestern Reporter. On the strength of this showing Judge Kinne reverses the case, although he says in his further opinion: " The record indicates that this case was hotly contested, and that counsel on both sides were not always in a proper frame of mind, and it may be that the acts of the court above mentioned were in a measure induced by the unnecessary wrangling of counsel." This record in the Allen case is clearly to Judge Quarton's credit. It is the disgrace of our courts that justice so often miscarries because witnesses are not brought up with a short rope and made to tell what they know. In the United States courts judges do not fiddle-faddle a record. Judge Quarton was here clearly attempting to bring a rascal to punishment by bringing out the truth. The reversal of the case because his question about the witnesses being coached by their attorneys might be considered prejudicial was purely technical. A Race Destiny. Few people realize that the policy of the United States from the beginning has been one of territorial expansion. Jefferson set the example by purchasing Louisiana in 1803 of Napoleon, Eight times subsequently by war or purchase or annexation have big tracts been added to our domain. In 1809 Spain ceded Florida, in 1846 Texas was annexed, in 1846 Oregon was taken and held, Jn 1848 Mexico ceded California and adjoining territories, In I860 Texas Newspaper Change. The Emmetsburg Reporter has been sold to a Mr. Williams from the southeast part of the state, an old newspaper man. Possession is to be given Sept. 1. The Reporter is a good piece of newspaper property, and we welcome the new man to the field of northwest Iowa journalism. J. C. Bennett has been connected with the Reporter for over 20 years, and his disposal of the property comes as a surprise to his many friends in this section. He says he will rest for a year before engaging in business again. L. H. Mayne, the other partner, is still in the army, and of course his future movements cannot be determined upon. NEWS AND COMMENT. The Emmetsburg Democrat passes an amusing commentary on the Courier's talk about criminal lawyers not being fit for judges, by cutting all that part off and publishing the rest. Senator Allison has so much to do with the financial legislation of the coming congress that he was unable to accept President MoKinley's urgent request that he aot with the peace commission. Senator C. K. Davis of Minnesota is to be one of the commissioners. He is a radical advocate of expansion. If he has his way the 1; pinnated grouse, pheasant or wild turkey Oct. 1.

Livermore Gazette: Miss Nettie Edmonds of Algona spent a few days last week at the Norton home. The saloon license at Spirit Lake has been fixed at f 900, which, with the state tax, makes the amount $1,500 per year. Judge Given is at the head of a movement to ask the Iowa legislature to dredge East Okoboji lake and make it navigable. Spencer Herald: Frank Hedrick and wife of Sexton, Iowa, were Sunday guests at the home of Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Tremain. Armstrong Journal: The police courts were busy in Algona last week. Four drunks besides other matters demanded their attention in one day. That pop factory must be doing a bfg business. John Jacobia, who has come to Algona as a traveling man many years, is dead. The McGregor Times says: Mr. John Jacobia died at the home of his daughter in Wisner, Neb., Tuesday, Aug. 2,1898. Mr. Jacobia left here a short time ago for that place in the hope of a change of climate benefitting his health, and was not known to be dangerously ill. He was a long and respected citizen of McGregor, and his death will be deeply regretted by all who knew him. United States Philippines. will get its share of the ceded what is now New Mexico, in 1853 the second Mexican cession covered what is known as the Gadsden purchase. In 1867 Russia ceded Alaska, and in 1898 Hawaii was annexed. The war with Spain will add Porto Rico, part at least of the Philippines, and for all practical purposes, Cuba. The policy of expansion is all In the part that has made a nation of the little colonies that priginally fringed the Atlantic. would' The Sheldon Mail is "rubbing it in" on Congressman Perkins. To an outsider the occasion is not apparent. Judge Thomas has received the most cordial support from the Sioux City Journal, while Mr. Garretson's weak points have been pointed out with a tact and delicacy which are commendable. If the Mail believes that the Journal should get after Mr. Garretson with a meat ax we have no sympathy with its demands. That belongs to the frontier of politics and happily is disappearing. We do not know what may be the occasion of the Mail's dislike of the congressman from the Eleventh, but we regret to see a man of Mr. Perkins' service, worth, and modesty treated like a common hack politician. SUGGESTIONS FBOM BAILEY. Every other man in Kossuth county is a candidate for county office. Clarion had a man named R. U. Ready. He died, leaving a widow. One day she received a postal card addressed, Mrs. R. U. Ready. As there was nothing on the other side of the card she took it for a proposal of marriage and answered by return mail, "yes." An old maid in Wesley read that a French doctor declares that long rides on the wheel result in " paraesthesia In the digits and baresis In the intercostal and adductor pollicis." Then she took her wheel into the woodshed and smashed it with an axe, declaring that she wasn't going to defeat all her chances of matrimony. An Algona girl says: "Anybody that can find anything romantic in "being married in July or August is welcome to the romance. The idea of getting married when there isn't a thing in life to inspire sentiment. There isn't anything but sentiment in honeymoon, though all the rest of the journey may be prosaic. And who could be poetical and sentimental with the earth baking, the dust choking, vegetation wilting, the blood boiling, and the pores of the skin dripping perspiration? Talk about love in August! I don't want any except in a mild form and in a general way. Those who want to get married in the dog days can do so. I'll get married in May or December or not get married at all." An Algona committee composed of Harvey Ingham, Joe Tennant, A. Brunson and Joe Wadsworth was appointed to make an investigation of this case and report. They found she was a grass widow, that she did not live in Kossuth county, and that she had never made any such remarks. A BIG FAIB ATTRAOTION. Lee Richardson, the Trick Bicycle Illder, to Give Exhibitions Each Day of the County Fair. The officials of the county fair society have closed a contract with Lee Richardson of Chicago, the famous trick bicyclist, by which he will appear on the grounds every afternoon of the fair and give exhibitions of his work. He has a great reputation for fancy riding and trick work, and it is sure to be one of the best attractions at the fair. Secretary G. H. Peek requests us to say that all parties desiring copies of the premium list can secure them at any bank in the county. Father Nugent's Lecture. A great many felt a little dissappoint- ment in Father Nugent's lecture to the teachers because they did not understand that the subject had been changed, and were trying to get some idea of the bearing of what he said upon the topic that had been announced. He did not discuss the "Philosophy of Civilization," but chose "The Brain in Education." He had a mass of illustra- trations excellently put together and suggestive, although strung upon a very slight thread. He is a pleasing speaker with fine voice and presence. In view of what has been said of his other lecture many will be disappointed that it was not given. It is a much more studied and eloquent effort. He spoke to all the church would hold, including standing room. a splendid advance in price. He likes the county, the soil and the people. Mr. Call is paying the railroad fare of those who actually purchase of him. He is offering good farms with fair improvements, close to market towns, in a county that has 21 creameries, and he wants them thoroughly inspected before sales are made. Mr. Call wants nothing but a square deal, and he is financially able to back every representation. His agent, Mr. Calkins, is an old-time farmer of Kossuth county and knows what he is talking about. In 1897, according to the state agricultural society's report, Kossuth county raised 3,048,230 bushels of oats. The average yield was 38 bushels per acre, while that f«r the entire state was 1 30 bushels. Only two counties in the state had a higher average than Kossuth county. PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS.

The following sketch of Judge Helsell's career is published in his home paper, the Sioux Rapids Republican: The Emmetsburg Reporter wants the Buena Vista afld Pocahontas papers to give some information as to Judge Helsell's ability and qualifications for the position to which he has been appointed and for which he is a Candidate before the people. Mr. Helsell's acquaintance is so wide and his standing is so high in Buena Vista, Clay and Pocahontas counties, where he has been known for the past 18 years, that it never dawned upon us boys who have come in years later that he was not as well known to all as he is to us. The unanimous nomination and endorsement of the judicial convention composed, as it was, largely of the leading attorneys of the district, the men in the district who knew him best, fostered the supposition that the entire district was familiar with his abilities and his record, hence ithasseemed like While the Courier is expatiating on the defense of the blue sky men how would it be to tell who was defending the boot- loggers in Kossuth and Palo Alto at the same time) The Courier's health is still very poor, The doctors stay it has Quartophobla A gill is all it can stand.

The the carrying coals to Newcastle to write his record and achievements. Mr. Helsell has lived nearly his entire life in Iowa, with the exception of five years spent in Illinois while pursuing his studies. During that time he graduated in the classical course of Carthage college, Carthage, III., not only taking highest rank in his class but the highest markings that have ever been given in that school, and taking every prize offered in his course, something that no other student has ever done in that school. After graduating he studied law in the office of Congressman Lane at Hillsboro, 111. and afterward in Iowa. '" After being admitted to practice before the supreme court he came to Sioux Rapids 18 years ago with practically nothing, and has built up the largest practice in the county. About a year and a half after he located here Messrs. Farmer and Thompson came on from the east and, appreciating his ability and Integrity, associated him with them in the bank of Sioux Rapids. This bank, largely under his supervision, has grown to the head of a system of seven banks, three of them being nationals. Of the national banks he is the director of three and president of one. An evidence of his high standing among the bankers of the state is shown in the fact that he has been both vice president and president of the State Bankers' association. As an attorney he'has been on one side or the other of nearly every important case in this section for years, and though he has had many cases in the supreme court he has lost but three in his entire practice. The only thing charged against him is that he has been a "corporation attorney." It is a very noticeable fact that railway or other corporations are not in the habit of hiring fools as attorneys, nor do they engage men who haye not a good record for Integrity. All of the ablest lawyers in the state have one time or other served some corporation in the capacity of attorney, and this fact is to their credit rather than otherwise. As a politician Mr. Helsell has been conspicuously clean and honorable, and his word when pledged has been kept. He has twice represented the Eleventh district in republican national conventions, being a member of the convention that nominated Harrison in 1888 and McKinley in 1896. He is in politics loyal to his friends and a hard fighter, but not one who takes a political fight into other matters, or who permits them to bias his treatment of men in other affairs. As a citizen no man has done more than Mr. Helsell for the upbuilding of the town of Sioux Rapids. That we have the best hotel on the line is due largely to his personal efforts. As a newspaper man we have had knowledge of nearly every subscription paper that has been circulated in the city for over seven years and there has never been an effort to raise money for a laudable purpose to which he has not been a leading contributor. It is an admitted fact that it is largely due to the magnanimity of Mr. Helsell and to the generous support given to customers of the banks that Sioux Rapids had not a single failure in the panic of 1893. As an attorney he has been ever as ready to assist the poor as the rich. NORTHWESTERN EXCURSIONS. STATE CONVENTIONS, DEMOCRATIC FREE SILVER REPUBLICAN, AND PEOPLE'S PARTIES, SEPT. 7.
