Hates of adverttetog gent on application. The County Ticket. The general opinion is that the republicans have never nominated better men for county office than this year. The candidates represent the old settlers and the new, are fairly scattered ore? the county, and are all in the prime of life. The best feature of itall is, moreover, that they won with the cordial good will of their competitors, and that IB something rare in conventions. This is a sure-enough republican year in Kossuth. Judge Quartern's Record. The Courier's attacks upon Judge Quarton have fallen so flat both in the county and district that they deserve no further attention. They have been actuated by personal malice and like all such attacks they kill themselves. The Courier has tried to make it appear that the judge has no standing with the lawyers of the state, when in fact a year ago he was elected by the state bar association to act on the program committee for the meeting held at Mason City last July, and at the Mason City meeting he was elected as one of four delegates from the state to attend the national bar association meeting at Saratoga, N. Y. The Courier has tried to make it appear to outside papers that as judge he has been friendly to the vicious classes, when not one single decision can be cited in his four years' service which even squints at such a thing, while his decisions in behalf of innocence, good order and justice would fill the Courier every week from now till election. In fact the only case cited against him, the Allen case at Spirit Lake, is a case where he offended in the eyes of the supreme court by being too vigorous the other way. The Courier would have the people believe that as a lawyer he has made a specialty of defending swindlers and vagabonds. The facts are that Judge Quarton was never known as a criminal lawyer, that he never appeared or had anything to do with but three of the " blue sky" cases, and that in his whole career in Algona he has never defended but one whiskey case. The Spirit Lake Beacon, which is not given to puffery nor to glossing over things for political effect, voices what we believe to be the common opinion of Judge Quarton when it says: " He is regarded here by farmers and others who fairly measure the official acts that he offered but one plank, on the money question, that be favored toe plank adopted M to on? colonial policy, and that he scarcely expressed any opinion etcept upon Invitation. Senator Gear's vote wa* the deciding one in the committee in favor of the resolution that we should protect the people that have come to as in the late war in securing good government, and his hearty endorsement of it undoubtedly secured it to the platform. In every way Senator Gear's conduct on the committee on resolutions won him the respect of bis associates. A justice of the peace In Pocahontas county sued Louie Lange of the Lanrens Sun for libel. The case was tried before Judge Qoarton and F. H. Helsell prosecute ed. The Jury brought in a verdict of $200 against Lange, who was clearly guilty. Since that time the Laurens Sun has been ferninst the court. The Sun is about the only paper in this district the Courier can get to pay any attention to Ite slanders. The nomination of Joe. B. Lane for congress In the Second district brings an Iowa Roosevelt to the front. He is fearless, honest, outspoken, and clear-headed. He will be a power on the Iowa delegation, and is sure to be elected on the issues of this fall. The boys who have known "Joe" since he was an Iowa City student will carry torches in his election parade. The war has settled down to the old fight between Gen. Miles and Secretary Alger. It began back In 1865. The democrats, populists, and silver republicans at Marshaltown agreed in again demanding the free coinage of silver at 16 to 1. They will be defeated this fall by the most overwhelming vote ever cast in Iowa. The Cedar Rapids Republican makes Judge Quarton's remarks on passing sentence on Bruce and Hoskins the subject of a lengthy editorial. It remarks that the Judge " said some things that every newspaper editor ought to ponder," and in conclusion says: "The judge said he wanted to find some means of making the editor in question ' quit going after anybody he hap. pens to dislike.' The last is the important sentence. .There are too many editors who imagine that the fact that they have a newspaper entitles them to 'go after' anyone they do not like. The fact that a man has a newspaper at his elbow does not give him the right to use it for such purposes. Judge pfttrriotlc 8008 of America who have I and going across prairie* at yonf own made the hottest fight and gained the sweet will before ever roads were, greates^victories that history makes a Fording streams without bridges. The record of. of public men, as an unbiased jurist, one who means to be fair to all Interests and who will have no compromise with evil doers. Judge Quarton is one of the most Helsell's vindication, which was expected by all who know the sterling young man, was not the important point in the case in Buena Vista county, but the rebuke of the recklessness of the press was." IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Britt News: Mrs. Finnell, wife of the editor of the Algona Courier, and Mrs Fuller were the guests of Mrs. Truman A. Potter last Thursday. An Armstrong school boy said the other day: "He gave me a piece of his piece of cake, and I gave him a piece of my piece, so we had a piece and a piece of a piece apiece." Estherville Democrat: Messrs. Kraft and Charles Brown, in company with Misses Daisy Coombs of Algona and fearless men on the bench in the state of Iowa. He occasionally gives offense to zealous attorneys because he cannot tolerate the trifling so expensive to the public, or the sharp practice so inconsistent with the ends of justice, but the people can easily endure this sort of peculiarity. He is a plain, blunt, honest man, as well as a good lawyer and clear-headed judge," That Judge Quarton has been as cool and temperate during his first term as judges like Lot Thomas or Geo. H. Carr were during their last term, probably his best friends would not claim. That is something no new judge could hope to have said of him. But that Judge Quarton will not be a fair, candid, able and conscientious judge during his second term, no man who knows him or knows his first term's record can truthfully assert. The unqualified disapproval that has been meted out to the Courier's slanders on all sides iff evidence sufficient that the judge will receive his full party vote, and that he will be reelected with hearty good will. Such a result will have a beneficial effect in discouraging the use of personal slander in our local politics. This is the first time in years that any paper has attempted to disparage and vilify a citizen of the county simply because of personal or political differences. It ought to be the last. Matilda Brakken of this place, drove to Spirit Lake Sunday and spent the day. Vinton Eagle: We see by the Algona UPPER DBS MOINES that Armstrong this state, classes its children as criminals by passing a curfew ordinance. It is hard to eliminate barbarism from Christianity. Geo. E. Marble is now merchant and postmaster at the town of Dolliver Emmet county. George will get to be a pretty good republican again. The Estherville Democrat says "he reports a good business in the town and is living in erreat hopes some day of getting a railroad." e John Bennett, who attended the old settlers' meeting in Algona, says in the Emmetsburg Reporter truly: The success of the meeting may be attributed to the energy of Geo. C. Call, the president of the society, and the energetic way in which he was backed up bv many of the settlers both old and new. Bailey: The Clear Lake girls have been practicing on the " Hobson kiss " It sounds like jerking a rubber boot on over a wet sock, and they paste them THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES, There is much of timeliness and au- tboritativeness In the September Century. Prof. Dean C. Worcester of the University of Michigan writes of "The Malay Pirates of the Philippines," his article being based upon observations made during an actual residence among the dreaded Moros. There are many illustrations to this paper, mainly from photographs taken by the author. Theodore S. Woolsey, professor of interna tional law at Yale University, contributes a study of " Spain and Her American Colonies." Emile Ollivier, member of the French Academy and formerly prime minister of France, is represented by an 1m portant paper on "America, Spain, and France." M. Ollivier can see in Spain's present misfortune "only the just judgment of Heaven," and asks his countrymen for an appreciation of America's lofty motives in the war. -*- -f- -t- The great topics of current interest are reflected in the contents of the September St. Nicholas. The number opens with an article by Tudor Jenks on " The Voyage of the Oregon," with illustrations by an artist with the fleet. An illustrated article on "The Gun Foundry at Washington, D. C.," tells how the big guns of the American navy, which have just given such a good account of themselves, are made. In "A Brush with Malay Pirates" George I. Putman describes a fierce attack by a fleet of proas upon an American bark. A Democratic Confession. The Davenport Democrat, after severely criticising Gov. Shaw for several weeks, publishes the following significant editorial: The republicans, in their Dubuque state platform, paid a warm tribute to Gov. Leslie M. Shaw of Iowa for his efforts in behalf of Iowa troops, in field and camp. The Davenport Democrat has criticised Gov. Shaw for neglect of duty to those same men. It has done this in accordance with the light it has had; not because he was a republican, for it has made no political capital out of any episode of the war, at any time or in any way; but because the facts seem to warrant all it said and more. On the face of events Gov. Shaw had not done his whole duty to Iowa soldiers, and for that failure fault was found. But the Davenport Democrat has reason to believe now that the face of the situation belies the facts. It is informed from a source that is absolutely reliable that Gov. Shaw fully deserves what the convention said of him in its commendatory resolution. It is not at liberty to disclose the channel nor the details of its information, but is told by indisputable authority that Gov. Shaw has on file in his office a stack of correspondence relative to Iowa men and their camp conditions, covering weeks. This correspondence, it is said, would make one of the most interesting chapters of the war if it could be disclosed. Names cannot be mentioned, but the evidence is accepted by this paper that some of the demands of Gov. Shaw for better treatment for Iowa men were as sharp as any that have been penned anywhere, and that they not only used plain language but considerably antedated like action by any other governor. The amelioration of the state of our men in hospital is directly charged to one or two messages in particular; weeks in the Spring when travel stopped because streams could not be crossed. The old settler made his own roads as he chose by guiding his team through woods and across prairies and fording the stream at any convenient place because he bad no neighbors go* ing the same way to help him build bridges. There was no depravity of a barbed wire fence then. No shutting up of Heaven's free woods with " notices to trespassers." Some of these days when I feel just right I am going to write about the prairies and woods of Iowa in a Sunday afternoon of a September when Iowa was a territory, and as the pioneer saw them. You will cry because you was not alive then. In going to a play—outside of China —we know that between 8 o'clock and 11 the entire history will be told; all of it with its love, its life, its adventures, its deaths; its sorrow and its success as the round of human fate will be told in three hours of stage story. In a magazine the same story will extend through months; to the individual the story grows to years; to a people to generations. The old settlers talk over periods that fill many years of human life, but if God wills it and the American people meet faithfully their place in the world's destiny all that the old settlers have done so far is but in the springtime of "the eternal years of God" as he has willed the life of America shall be. DISTEIOT OOTJBT IN SESSION. Some Interesting Cases On For Trial This Week— Dinger vs. Bruer Set For Friday. The first case In court was begun yesterday. It was Gowdy ys.

It retards the growth of whiskers unless treated immediately. The young men all carry a box of vaseline and a club when thev venture out. one to Secretary Alger, and one to Gen. Sternburg. The Democrat hastens at the first opportunity since receiving this intelligence to make this statement. It has been honest and sincere in its criticism, and now, without even a suggestion from any quarter, or any knowledge of its course on the part of the subject of the criticism of the past, it states the other side, the inside facts in the case. If the truth is as told this paper, and it is unable to doubt its informant, Gov. Shaw owes himself the duty of giving enough publicity to this correspondence to clear his record of the charges laid against it. The Democrat is democratic. It aims also to be fair and tell the truth, and when injustice is done it would rather be sneered at for an honest error than keep silence and permit the wrong to go unrighted. It cannot hope to have much influence with Gov. Shaw, but it trusts that the republican papers of the state that do have influence with him will unite in an appeal, if need be a demand, for the production of the evidence in question. Gov. Shaw will terson. Judge Helsell gave very clear and comprehensive instructions as he sent them to their room. The pettit jury is as follows: J. B Butler, Ed. Goetsch, W. H. Campbell, C.

Britt Tribune: Algona people were determined to know the whole truth about Chickamauga and sent A. A Brunson and Dr. Morse there to investigate. Mr. Brunson is known to nearly everybody in Britt and is a man on whom the greatest reliance can be placed. He went to investigate and that investigation was thorough. The climate and the long continued use of the camp is where the trouble originated. 5 Al. Adams in the Humboldt Inde- interview with A. A. Brunson of Algona, We have known Comrade Brun- and familiar to our experience; all the problems that confronted solved. Now modern life has so complicated, conditions have so changed, so many problems arise in social and political affairs and in gov ernment that are new and unfamiliar and which we do not know how to settle that we are perplexed and disquieted and made unhappy. We find those times better because it was easier for a man to think he knew what to do about all things than it is now. As I was born into it an occasional old settler has told me sympathetically how good the old times were and how bad the new.
