Bates of advertising sent on application. Republican State Campaign. There was a gathering of the republican state and congressional candidates at Dea Molnes last Friday. The state central committee advised with them, and the active campaign will begin. It is settled that on Oct. 8 a big opening meeting will be held in each district, and thereafter the public speaking will continue until election. " First Pore, Then Peaceable." It is unlikely that the peace proposals from the czar of Russia will come to anything. Ultimately they cannot, because the conditions upon which peace alone can be maintained do not exist in many countries in Europe. A combination of powers can be patched up such as today keeps Turkey on its feet, but such a combination, whatever is done with the national armaments, means nothing for peace, except the peace of the Romans, who "made a desert and called it peace." Such a combination, if it had existed a year ago, would have allowed Spain to butcher the Cubans with impunity and rendered us powerless to prevent it. How can peace of any kind worth having come to a country like France where a prominent man is confined to a solitary cage, without a public trial and on evidence which neither he nor his attorney nor any of his friends have ever been allowed to hear or inspect'? What combination of powers can or ought to maintain peace in a country like Spain, where the people have not been allowed to read a word of truth about their own war, or to discuss a single measure taken by their own government for its promotion? In Russia, from which the proposal comes, Count Tolstoi has just published a book from which the political censor has cut whole paragraphs and pages, and into which the religious censor has put paragraphs which Tolstoi did not write expressing sentiments Tolstoi does not entertain. In order to get his views on art before the world this great writer has had to have his book published in England. Even in Germany Wm. E. Curtis says the people dare not discuss the emperor or anything he does openly for fear of arrest, and they have invented a name which everybody understands to refer to him, which they use. Civil liberty lies at the very foundation of any permanent world wide peace. It is idle to talk about peace •until free speech, a free press, free religious opinion, an honest administration of exact and impartial justice, and popular education are the inheritance of every man. A combination of powers may postpone international war, but it cannot prevent internal insurrection, which is worse. Today the real menace to the peace of the future is not the armaments of the nations of Europe "but the popular discontent and anarchy among the people of Europe. The peace of the future is going to come through war. The war we have just waged has done more for permanent peace than the disarmament of Europe can do, even if it is honestly entered, upon. There will be other wars, because there is no compromise possible between democracy and autocracy. The growth of the one is the extinction of the other, and no ruling class has ever yet retired of its own free •will and accord. The United States will doubtless be represented at the czar's peace convention, and our delegates will doubtless join in some benevolent resolutions. But no citizen of the United States, who believes in the vitality of the institutions under which he lives or in the destiny of the race to which he belongs, will be for an instant deceived as to the futility of it all. For in the very order of the universe there is decreed an inevitable conflict which can never end until liberty and justice prevail in every corner of the earth. Horace Mann Loses. THE UPPER DBS MOINES is unable to learn of a single delegate who went from Kossuth to the congressional con vention at Fort Dodge. Mr. Mann was left without any home support whatever, and, of course, was beaten for the nomination after having made thorough canvass of the district and received most flattering assurances o support. Mr. Anderson of Ruthven was nominated on the second ballot He was in the last legislature with Mr Farley, as a silver republican. He i an agreeable man to meet, but has no given half the time to fitting hlmsel for congress that Mr. Mann has, and has not half the real zeal for the cause NEWS AND OOMMENT. Frank Bicknell says Anderson want to run against Dolliver for the advertising Al. Adams don't sympathize ver; heartily with some of the kicking that 1 being done: "If the soldiers of this wa bad gone through one-sixteenth of the hard ship in any line they may name, that thos of 1861-5 did, they might have license tc talk. The roar that has been going on 1 the papers regarding the hardships under gone by those five months' soldiers, outsid of those in the Santiago campaign, is dis gusting to any old soldier who had soldie service in the war of the rebellion." Dolliver carried the Tenth by 10,66 majority two years ago. An Honest Investigation. It is evident to all that President Me- Kinley is arranging for an honest inquiry into the conduct of the late war. Among the men who have accepted his invitation to act on the board of investigation is President Oilman of the Jpbn Hopkins University, and the membership throughout will be of like quality. The Outlook, an eastern independent paper which has demanded very vigorously that an investigation be made, gays in this connection: "The president seems to us to have done wisely in requesting these gentlemen to conduct such an investigation. Their character is a guarantee that they will be influenced in their investigation by neither fear nor favpr. and the president's request is an evidence that he few »P desire to stifle the inquiry into She conduct of the war, and that neither political nor personal considerations have any influence with him to prevent such inquiry. His apt appears to us to be another evidence of the value of character in political position; it is this istbe president which has ungoverned Wm in'the appoint- Bioftere to investigate otatment pi the com- A. N. Boeye, a former court reporte in Algona, was nominated for county attorney last week at Webster City, beatin D. C. Chase by a vote of 67 to 47. It i worthy of note that Boeye was a supporte of Charlie Hellen for the Webster Citj postofflco. It is idle now to waste time discuss ing bimetallism, but we are surprised tha the Cedar Rapids Republican knows s little of the history of it, and so little of th scientific authority that sustains it. The Courier very sensibly says tha it is nonsense for the democrats to stick t 16 to 1 any longer. It will soon see that is equally foolish to stick to the idea tha this country can alone maintain bimetallism Thos. B. Reed has been in congres 22 years and is elected for two more. Congressman Dolliver is booked fo considerable campaigning outside of low before the opening of the state campaign after which time he will be in his distric and the state constantly. He will speak a Peoria, 111., Sept. 22, at Louisville on Sep' 24, at Cincinnati after that, and then fo three days in Michigan. The only real congressional contes in Iowa will be between John F. Laey an Gen. Weaver in the Sixth. The silver me are going to put in lots of outside talent f o the general. On the other hand Majo Lacy will not be left in the lurch. Tw years ago the republican majority was ove 1,200. The Emmetsburg Democrat says tha A. A. Brunson and Dr. Morse were "sen to Camp Thomas with a political whitevvaa brush and that the purpose of the visit wa not an impartial description of the cond tionof affairs that existed there," That i absurd. Mr. Brunson and Dr. Morse wer selected at a public meeting, because the could be useful in getting the sick of Com pany F home. There was never any tal of their describing the camp, impartially o otherwise. When they came back the, told what they saw, and the people here abouts believe they told it exactly as thej saw it. Judge Helsell's first appearance on the bench has established his standing be yond the possibility of dispute. The law yers and general public agree that be is an able lawyer and an admirable presiding of fleer. He tried in Algona last week one o the most closely contested cases ever ar gued in our courts, in which the law wa admitted on both sides to be in dispute, and both in his rulings and in his instructions to the jury won the commendation of th able attorneys. Judge Helsell will make a record second to none in the annals of the district bench of Iowa. The Iowa sanitary commission cal attention to their chain letter, now their only source of income, and urge that al who have, or may receive one will answei promptly and send on the four copies. The commission now have 24 sick soldiers in their hospital, and the expenses for nurses medicine, rent, etc., exceed $200 a week This is more than the present income and therefore they make this urgent appeal to the people of Iowa to keep the chain letter going. The peace commissioners of the United States have sailed for Paris. They have agreed upon the demands they will make of Spain, but for obvious reasons, these demands are not made public. It is assumed everywhere, however, that the whole island of Luzon will be the least asked in the Philippines. It is definitely decided that whatever demands are made will be in the form of an ultimatum, and there will be no juggling with Spain. IN T3IS The Sao Sun says the electric light plant put in by Bigelow, the Algona <?Qn,traotor, is all right. The Sheldon Mail notes a visit from Rev. Suokow and says he was warmly greeted in his old. home. John Conners has sold 8Q acres of land off from big old place in Koseuth nearJUi Verne for $2,960. Tfce were no improvements on the place, simply Fenced and broken. The crops on it this year netted him 910 per acre. Renwick Times: Kossuth and Hancock counties are the banner apple counties of the state this year. The Hampton Recorder says the Marie Bell opera company which comes to Algona fair week, is a good one. Joe Dorweiler at West Bend is looking for the man who hung a card marked "take one" on his bunch of ripe bananas. The Armstrong Journal says David Miller of Algona will be pharmacist in the A. W. Colvln drug store. " Dave" is a good man. Blue Earth City is to have the original Andrews opera company. The Post says Ed. and Nellie Andrews have a company that has been doing big business in Philadelphia and eastern cities. West Bend Advance: Walter Crabtree of Algona and Misses OraCrabtree and Florence White of Chicago, the former two brother and sister of Mrs. G. G. Schreiber, visited at the Schreiber home in this city the fore part o! the week. Spencer Herald: John Adams, whc enlisted in the late war as a member o the Algona company, returned to his home in this city yesterday. Camp life appears to have agreed with him am' he is looking much better than when he enlisted. The Estherville Republican notes the return of the soldiers and says: Algona citizens prepared a big spread for the soldiers and when they got there did full justice to the meal. They wil always have a tender spot in their hearts for Algona. Col. Chas. A. Clarke returned to Spirit Lake last week from a visit to Maine, where he attended a reunion o his old regiment. The Beacon says the colonel and Mrs. Clarke will remain at the lakes for several weeks yet. They are getting things in fine shape abou their West Okobojt home. Dr. Harry Spencer of Sexton has gone to Omaha on his wheel. He vis ited at Rolfe on his way. The Rolfe Reveille says: Harry is, as our read ers know, practicing medicine rind con ducting a drug store at Sexton and is doing nicely financially, but he desires to enter a wider field, where the prac tlce of his profession will take up hii entire time. The Forest City Summit says of one of the Kossuth fair attractions: There is no doubt but that Lee Richardson the trick bicycle rider, was the bes attraction of the fair, and the manage ment made no mistake when they se cured him. He won the admiration o all by his daring feats and his gentle manly bearing. A return visit to our city from him at any future time would be hailed with delight. Mayor Quick of Sioux City, formerly school teacher in Kossuth county, go' a plank into the democratic state plat form providing that the constitution o the United States can be amended a any time by popular vote, congres submitting the proposed change There is a good deal to be said in favo of his plan, but the people are slow t< tinker with the constitution. Mayo Quick will be a very old man before hi suggestion is adopted. The Free Methodists held their an nual conference at Spencer last week Next year they come to Algona, meet ing on the first Wednesday in Septem ber and holding a two-weeks' cam meeting at the same time. Followini are the appointments for the Algon district: A. C. Damon, Algona, Whit temore and-Bancroft; J. Sutten, Arm strong, Center Chain and Tanhassen J. R. Webb, Spencer, Weaver am Capener; Samuel Ham, Peterson, Mapl Grove and Douglas Center; A. D. Gil lett given certificate, J. M, Cais, Super L. H. Mayne tells about the soldie boys' dinner at Algona: Nothing o importance took place on the home ward trip until the train pulled intc Algona. Here a vast concourse of peo pie had gathered to welcome Compan' F home, and to give a God-speed ti Companies K and E on their homeward journey. The Algona band was pres ent, and as K and E had to transfer to the Milwaukee road an order was got ten to stop the train at the foot of Thor ington street, and so the boys were marched up town led by the band where a bounteous repast was served It is needless to say that the boys die ample justice to it, but the tables were so loaded with edibles that it woulc have taken many times the number o soldiers to have made much of an im pression on them. The town was one mass of bunting and flags, and every thing that was possible to be done was done to welcome the boys home. II was certainly a magnificent welcome and in after years the boys will look back upon it as one of the sunny spots in their brief experience as Uncle Sam's boys. NEWS NOTES. Today is Iowa day at the Omaha ex position. The Fort Dodge military company will disband and sell its armory anc outfit. It don't want any more national guard duty. Des Moines will build a big auditorium for next year's republican state convention. Plans are adopted. "Doc." Russel tells them in Miss- ssippi that the heat in Iowa was terrible and that he is glad to be back where it is cool. Judge Cooley, who recently died in Michigan, had a brother who died in "Estherville last fall of mental aberation. The Mason City supervisors author- zed the expenditure of $3,000 if necessary in behalf of sick soldiers from "erro Gordo county. John F. Duncombe is president of a lew railway company that will build rom Fort Dodge to Omaha. The new ine is said to be a "go." Cyrus B. Ingham, a well known character in early Fort Dodge, died at Canon, S. D-, last week at the age of 85. le founded the Fort Dodge Times. He ectured in Algona once in the early days. Among the ingenious contests being fanned for the Waterloo street fair is ne for " klokers." The Reporter says he prize will be a pair of heavy, extra olid hip boots for the citizen who is most noticeable for doing nothing, iving nothing, but talking loudest nd most in opposition to everything done for Waterloo. The annual Northwestern Iowa con- erence meets at Emmetsburg today. Bishop Vincent will preside. He will also lecture Thursday evening. Rev. Eugene May will lecture on Cuba Saturday night. Rev. J. W. Barkford will give a series of lectures. About 200 ministers will attend. Al. Rlngllng, of RIngling Bros.' big circus, is in jail for murder. He became much enraged at a shell game worker, who persisted in following the show. He had the scoundrel arrested over and over again, and forbid him following, but with exasperating persistence he would turn up in the next town. In a town in Ohio, Ringling struck him over the head with a tent stake. The blow was harder than intended and it killed him, and Ringling was arrested for murder and is serving a five year sentence. THE COUNTY TICKET, LuVerne News: win. Ledyard Leader: and a sure winner. A ticket that will It is a good ticket Bancroft Register: The convention at Algona Friday last put up one of the COLLAPSE OF W. WitBOH. The Washington Press Tells About the Sudden Death of the A. O. U. W. Organizer. The Washington Press tells about the collapse of W. Wilson, the A. O. U. W. organizer, at hie home a week ago. The Workmen hereabouts will be interested in the article: While at old settlers' meeting Tuesday, W. Wilson, Jr., suddenly halted on the words, " our boys," meaning Company D boys, and reeled and could not articulate. He took a step forward off the platform at Smouse's hall, and fell on the table. Seated by the window, his face drawn, he fell off the chair, and was taken home, the victim of a stroke on the right side. He soon became unconscious, but cleared next day but could not speak. On Thursday he took some nourishment. All will hope that he may soon get up again. That Tuesday noon he brought a bough of peaches to his office, and seemed as well and cheery as ever; the bolt had come out of an apparently clear sky. Yet he had come home the week before from his work exhausted by heat, traveling Friday night and all of Saturday. He was very tired. He wished to be home on last Thursday, as it was the thirty-third anniversary of his marriage. He lin- The average precipitation for the was 3.44 inches.

The accompanying illustration is a good picture of the " terrible Swede," probably the best long- distance bicycle rider in the west at the present time. A race between he and the Cory pony for five miles has been arranged to come off on Friday, the last day of the fair. He is to be paced by three tandems, and the race will be the hottest and most exciting that has ever been seen on our race track. The Swede is also an expert at trick riding, and gave exhibitions at the Britt fair last week which were pronounced by all to have been well worth the price of admission to see. Lee Richardson, the famous trick rider, will also be here and give an exhibition every afternoon of the fair. best tickets the republicans have had in this county for years. Germania Standard: A harmonious and satisfactory affair from start to finish. Wesley News: The county convention held in Algona last Friday was a large and enthusiastic one. Whittemore Champion: It is believed that all of the nominees if elected will serve the county in a faithful manner in their several capacities. Burt Monitor: The ticket is made up of competent and capable men, and is well distributed. The republicans of the county never put up a stronger or better one. Swea City Herald: The result of the convention gives the republicans agood ticket and well placed. So far as we heard it was a clean campaign, anc there will probably be no kicking ove the traces like there was a year ago. Wesley Reporter: While in Algona Tuesday one of Kossuth's most staunch democratic gentlemen laconically re marked, " Mac, you republicans have such a strong ticket up this year that I cannot see how a break can be made in it." We agreed with him, for as w prophesied it is simply impregnable. SUOZERS AT FOREST CITY. The County Fair a Gambling Carnival— lialley'B Observations. The Forest City county fair seems to have been a " blue sky" exhibition The fakirs were the whole thing. One gambler paid $360 to run and others like amounts. The Clear Lake Mirror tells of one renter who had just sold his wheat and had 8140 in his pockets and who lost $125 and would have blown in the other fifteen if Tony Chissel hadn't rushed into the crowd and dragged him away. Bailey .attended the fair and gives the following account of it: The fair at Forest City was the means of bringing in some of the finest blooded stock ever shown in Forest City. The rec polled shell man was a beautiful speci- man with black points, straight on the back, and just captivated the denizens of the puckerbrush with his taking ways. The Aberdeen Monte man had a fine stall on the plaissance, anc attracted a great deal of attention. The Blackhawk Morgan, Chuck Luck, was a fine stepper, and showed his gait al 3 o'clock, p. m., Friday when the gate was open for egress. The little Jersey heifer showed high stepping qualities at the same time. The display of vegetables was excellent, a large number of water snakes, black snakes, blue snakes, serpents and reptiles was included in this class, as well as cane racks, doll racks, and other agricultural products. In cereals there was the merry-go-round, trained birds, crocodiles, monkeys, striking machines and shooting galleries. In farm machinery they had the wheel of fortune, fortuned wheel, circular wheel, round wheel, upright wheel, horizontal wheel, and paddle wheel. In poultry there was the chicken picker, hen huzzy, weather cock, and the rooster with his head through a blanket. The Last Crop Report. The corn crop is now practically beyond danger of material injury by frost, ihough some of the late planted fields will mature in better condition if normal weather prevails through the balance of the month. The crop is generally more fully matured in the north- irn half than in the southern half of he state, and with dry weather much jf the crop will be in condition to crib early in October. A considerable area ias been cut and shocked, especially in he eastern districts. On the whole this has been a season f bountiful production in this highly avored state. jgered through the week, gradually ' losing. This morning his pulse is 115 Really, the doctor has no hope but the remotest that bo can turn the corner and get up. TWO BIG CARNIVALS. Des Molnes and Sioux City Will Entertain the Multitudes. During the week of Oct. 3 to 8 the Seni Om Sed association of Des Moines will give an exhibition unparalleled by any similar attempt in this western country. The magnificent fireworks spectacle of the battle of Manila bai will be given at a cost of over $5,000 fo" this one attraction alone. One grea' big attraction will be horse races a: the kite-shaped track. Three thousam dollars in purses are up. There will bi a grand musical recital, shooting tour nament, etc. In every hour of both day and night the entire five days o the carnival will bo crowded full of the most delightful kind of entertainment During the same week the big Sioux City carnival will be on.

The music wil be the best the country can afford. Bands have been engaged from Sioux Falls, Yankton, Wayne, Wakefield Pender, Sheldon, Rock Rapids, Ha, warden, Sioux City and others. DEMOCRATS MEET TODAY. A Dearth of Candidates for County Office—There Are Three Named for Recorder. The democrats meet today to name a county ticket. THE UPPER DES MOINES has labored diligently to find out who is likely to be nominated, but can hear of no one who wants an office or can be prevailed upon to accept any thing but the nomination for recorder. For this office M. J. Walsh will be the nominee if..he will consent, although Mr. McChesney of Burt, and Lee Moore, west of Burt, are possibilities. For clerk, it is said, a farmer in Seneca will be named, someone in Algona will be auditor. For county attorney J. L. Bonar is slated, but he don't want it and may refuse point blank. A Scandinavian in the northwest part of the county will be put on for supervisor. It is likely to be a very quiet conven tion. TELLS ANOTHER STORY. A Garner Soldier Says He Had Enough to Eat and Was Well Treated, The Garner Signal gives one soldier boy's experience at Camp Thomas: Harry Nesbit of Company A, 52d Iowa volunteers, is 'home on a furlough. Harry gives a very interesting account of his experience at Camp Thomas, Chickamauga. He says when he enlisted he did not expect to sleep on a feather bed or live on pie and cake; he therefore has no kick com(ng. He says it is all stuff about the boys being starved, that every soldier got plenty to eat of the best that Uncle Sam's commissary afforded. He also says that he was well treated by his officers and jomrades, and the only complaint he ms to make is that the water was not is good as what he had been used to at lome. Harry looks strong and rugged and is evidently of the stuff that good soldiers are made of. The Month of August. The first half of the month was cooler han usual, and during most of the last half it was unseasonably warm, the mean temperature for the state being 1,2 degrees. The average was there- ore about normal. There was an average monthly range of 47.4 degrees. yet . nch at Adair, and the largest t JS 10.66 inches at Bonaparte! Otal SECURING A SCHOOL HOtJBE BITE. The Commissioners Condemn Helse and Adjoining Lots-A Suit Probable. The commissioners appointed by Supt. Van Erdewyk, John G. Smith j W. Robinson^ and J. W. Tennant, met yesterday and after looking over the lots asked to be appraised by the school board, known in general as the Heise lots, put a price on them as fol lows: C. E. Heise four lots, $2 050- Will Haggard one lot, $600; D. A fi gard one-half lot, $225; Thos. Little one-half lot, $333; a total of $3,188 for the six lots, or over $500 a lot. Mr Heise will contest the appraisement in the courts and resist any effort of the board to occupy the property. D A Haggard also will take legal steps to prevent his half-lot being taken at the price named. It Is likely to be some time before the board will know whether this site can be had at the price set by the appraisers. Dr. Day at the Dows Dedication. Dows Advocate: The anniversary at the M. E. church passed off pleasantly. The evening was enjoyed by a large and appreciative audience that gathered and filled every seat in the entire upstairs part of the church. Every number on the program was rendered in an acceptable manner. Dr. F. E. Day's address on the "Church" was timely and especially fitting our community. He seemed to be master of the situation. The doctor is an able speaker. His sentences are full and his delivery fascinating. In alluding to the growth of the local church he said during the last three years there has been added to the church 115 members who had not come from other churches but were converts from the ranks of sin. Over 60 have been baptized. Nearly $12,000 had been raised for church purposes. He said he had not seen the like in a town the size of Dows in the state of Iowa. He eulogized the new church and the careful way the trustees handled the finances. Pastor McBurney and his people were in the heighth of their glee. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. A. \V.
