Wright, Com. that the governor had seen the real danger at camp, nod that he was then taking steps to secure the removal of the regiment before our people at home had become alive to the situation. It is worthy of note that the following statement was written by Gen. Byers nearly a week before the meeting was held in Algona which Oeo. E. Boyle addressed: "The governor is at present in Washington urging the removal of the 53d from its present locality. I found the 62d Iowa in better condition than the other regiments there, but I noticed among the men the hollow eye,an indication of not flrst-olass health. We visited the hospitals and found there quite a number sick. We assured them that everything that could be done for them would be done. While we did not mention the fact of removal to the men, it was our idea that We should hare them removed from that camp." As further corroborating what Gefi. Byers here states the Webster City Freeman publishes a telegram sent by Gov. Shaw immediately upon his return from Washington, several days before the Algona meeting was held: " DBS MOIJJES, Aug. 19.—Hon. W. C. Burleson, Webster City, Iowa—My Dear Sir: Your telegram is at hand. I am using every influence possible to secure, first, the removal of the 62d Iowa regiment from Camp Thomas; failing in this, a prolonged furlough, and as a last resort their ultimate discharge. I am hopeful of favorable results at an early date. The good people of your city can be assured that no effort will be spared to preserve the lives and the health of the four Iowa regiments, the equal of which are seldom, and the superior of which I believe have never been mus tered into the service of any country. Sincerely yours, L. M. SHAW." There is plenty of other proof if it is ever needed that Gov. Shaw's visit was not a junketing trip, that he inspected the camps just as does everything else he has anything to do with, and that he had already taken steps to save the Iowa soldiers before their'friends at home fully realised their danger. Whatever may be alleged against Gov. Shaw it cannot be truthfully alleged that he is a dress-parade man, or that he goes about with his eyes shut. He is a common, keen-sighted, clearheaded and prompt governor, and THE UPPER DBS MOINES knows what it is saying when it assures the friends of the boys at Camp Thomas that they owe a great deal to Gov, Shaw's prompt and vigorous action that the 62d was the first regiment ordered north. That order did not come, either, as the result of a mild request. published the record of the Allen fcase at Spirit Lake, where Judge Quarton offended in the eyes of the supreme court by being too radical in bringing a vicious seducer to justice. THE UPPER DBS MomES hereby offers to fill as many columns of the Courier's space as it will open to it with decisions rendered by Judge Quarton during the past four years, every one of them a decision in behalf of the innocent, the oppressed or the poor. And it challenges the Courier to sustain its slanders by one single decision In which the wealthy or the vicious have been favored by the court. Judge Helsell Praised. The Estherville Republican and Vindicator speak highly of Judge Helsell, who is holding Judge Thomas' term in Emmet county. The Democrat notes his presence without comment. The Armstrong Journal, an independent paper politically, whose editor is a practicing lawyer, commends the judge highly. Our readers will find clippings in another column. The Phil. C. Hanna.

Byers to }, C, Raymond, Esq., published in UPPER DBS MOINES last week, very ef- feotuftlly djepoeed of the local feeling bad been aroused, against Gov. jr, It was written white toe gover- Should Be Investigated. The people are going to demand an investigation into the conduct of the war department, if for no other reason than to learn how to avoid the blunders of the past few weeks in the future. Secretary Alger and Surgeon General Sternberg should court the inquiry. Gen. Shaffter's reputation depends on it, and so in fact does Gen. Miles', and that of all who have been in responsible places. The navy comes out without a stain on its record. But the evidences of inefficiency or criminal neglect in the army are so startling that this country will not let the matter pass. For the good of our future military organization a searching investigation should be ordered by the president or by congress. Blood Will Toll. The war is worth all it has cost in showing us what kind of blood this nation is cultivating. The heroism of our boys in the fever camps at Camp Thomas, and the heroism of the wealthy and ease loving sons of millionaires in the charge on Santiago, are an earnest that the future is still ours. There is not a drop of enervated vital fluid in American veins from the top to the bottom, and neither wealth nor poverty have debilitated the descendants of the men who set out to make civil liberty a fact in the earth. Let the Anglo Saxon be not afraid that his end is near or that any island is too big or too distant for him to establish and maintain freedom therein. correspondent has a column and a half about Phil. C. Hanna and what he thinks about the situation. He introduces his interview by saying that Phil, is going to have a good deal to say about what ought to be done: "And what Mr. Phil. C. Hanna, former consul-general at San Juan, has published will in all probability have much to do with the ultimate result. He returned to the Island with the first of the Invading army, and has since been keeping the government advised from here, just as he did from St. Thomas after his compulsory retirement from San Juan at the declaration of war. He has consented to give his views to the Record. Byway of introducing him to those not familiar with all the names in the consular list, it may be well to explain be fore hand that while he is a nephew of Senator Hanna he entered the service many.years ago and was consul in Venezuela during the last revolution there. Later he was consul in the British West Indies and more recently came to Porto Rico. He is generally regarded as a hard fighter and a good man to have at the front if there is trouble at hand. "Mr. Hauna may be remembered, by the way, as the man whom Congressman Amos J. Cutamlngs of New York linked with Capt. Eulate of the Vizcaya in a pretty romance related on the floor of the house a few weeks ago. He informs me, however, that the congressman stops short of what he considers the point of the story. The friendship existing between the two men, which worked so happily, as Mr. Cummings related, to the release of 86 foreign merchants imprisoned by the revolutionists in Venezuela in 1892, was consummated during this war. When the two nations were on the verge of war, though Mr. Hanna had not yet left his post at San Juan, the Vizcaya steamed one day into the harbor and came to anchor in plain view of Mr. Hanna's house. The captain sent the latter a kindly note, and the old friendship was renewed, but war was declared the next day. When the Vizcaya went down before Commodore Schley at Santiago Mr. Hanna was at St. Thomas. Hearing that Capt. Eulate was a prisoner and safe, except for a slight wound, he telegraphed the news to his family, receiving in return letters which he forwarded him. "By this means was repaid after many years the obligation due the brave Spaniard for standing at his back with his warship and bringing the Venezuelan revolutionists to time at a critical moment." w^ etui in Washington, before tie bad comjp home f rpm his visit to Camp 1"t)_OmaB, ftpd be/ore our citizens met big) at tt>e Ames agriou,ltu,ral college Cowardly Slanders. It is to the credit of the democratic papers of the district that they have without any exception we have seen made no favorable comment on the Courier's vicious personal assault on Judge Quarton. The Fort Dodge Chronicle, outside the district, makes the Courier's attack the basis of a criticism on the judge, in the course of which it says: " Judge Quarton of Algona, who is nearing the end of bis first term, has been re- nominated and it is said that the judge is very friendly to a class whom judges ought to be a terror to." The Courier republishes this with italics of its own. Judge Quarton has been on the bench four years. He has been in every county in the district many times, He has decided hundreds of cases. Where has be shown this friendliness to the ** classes he ought to be a terror to}"' In what county has he been allied to the criminal or corrupt or vicious classes? In what decision has he offended against justice and decency, or given aid or comfort to the lawless? The Courier cannot answer and will not attempt to answer. It has started out a dozen slanders on Judge Quarton it will never again refer to and cannot be forced to refer to. It cannot bring to Jigfct p»e decision that bears o«t a single item of its slanderous allegations NEWS AND COMMENT. It comes with pretty poor grace from an editorial church member, who for years has not referred to his own pastor without swearing, to talk about "blasphemy." If all who remember the civil war will ask themselves how far governors, congressmen, and other civil officials controlled or influenced Edwin M. Stanton, they will know exactly what degree of responsibility attaches to them now for the condition of the army. - G. N. Haugen, a young Norwegian 89 years of 'age, was nominated for congress In the Fourth district after a heated contest. Jas. E. Ely the of Maion City had the most delegates In the convention, but after Congressman Updegraff's friends saw he could not be renominated they went to Haugen. Haugen has been In the legislature, and is a likely man. The democrats down in the Second have dropped the 16 to 1 plank and have united on Judge Ney for congress.

At the quarterly conference held Saturday afternoon the elder commended our people on their efforts to secure a new church building, and work will be begun on same as soon as practicable. A Fairmont parent wrote to an editor for instructions as to how to stop his boy from smoking cigarettes and received the following reply: "We suggest bribery, persuasion, instructing, or shutting off his allowance; then if he remains obstinate use a rawhide on his raw hide. Welt him until he Is ready to hold up his hands and promise never to smoke a cigarette. If that does not work, drown him. A drowned boy is better than one that smokes cigarettes." JUDGE HELSELL ON THE BENOH. Armstrong Journal: Courtconvened at Estherville Tuesday mornihg with Judge Helsell on the bench. This was his first experience, but'he wore the judicial ermine with dignity and acquitted himself as if he had been accustomed to it for years. Estherville Republican: Judge Helsell, successor to Judge Thomas, presided on the bench in this city for the first time this week. He is a stranger to our people but he impressed them most favorably. He is a gentleman of fine presence, clean cut features, agood lawyer, and presides with dignity and with the utmost impartiality. Ho will make a judge the district can be proud of. Estherville Vindicator: Hon. F. H. Helsell of Sioux Rapids, Iowa, who has been commissioned by Gov. Shaw to fill the vacancy upon the district bench caused by the resignation of Judge Thomas, appeared on Tuesday and opened the August term of court. The new judge is in the prime of mental and physical vigor, being about 40 years of age. He has for a number of years been the leader of the bar in the southern part of the district, and brings to his new position a large experience in the court room and a mind well stored with the knowledge of law. Judge Helsell during his term of court at this place has made an exceedingly favorable impression upon the lawyers, court officers, jurors, and public generally. He presides on the bench with the quie_t dignity of the ideal judge, while with keen perception he seems to readily comprehend the questions presented for determination, and with sound and deliberate judgment to adjust the doubtful balances of right and wrong. His charge to the grand jury delivered on Wednesday was remarkable for the clear and comprehensive manner in which he laid before that body its duty under the law. Judge Helsell will in our judgment prove to be one of the ablest and most popular judges that has ever occupied the bench in this district. Now is the time, Our store the place for Fruit :br Canning.

Never before have the people of this vicinity been offered such an opportunity to receive work of this class at so little cost.

The editor of a Kansas newspaper states that he picked up a Winchester rifle one day recently and started down the street to deliver the weapon to Its owner.
