In the issue of THE UPPER DES MOINES of Nov. 18 is a report that the present Milwaukee line had been contracted to 20 miles west of Charles City, and the editor says " let the doubting doubt of 1893. UYOfc T»**MI« — The Republican holds with the Cleveland administration that it was principally a defect in our currency system. THE UPPER DES MOINES holds with the republican congress which voted for the repeal of the Sherman act that it was incompetency In the management of national affairs. We do not believe the BepubHcan can find in a single republican speech during the debate on the repeal of the Sherman act an admission that silver coinage under that act was considered as the real or sufficient cause of the panic. The republicans on the contrary distinctly asserted that it was not the cause, and that repeal would not remedy matters. They, however, proposed to vote for repeal in order that the Cleveland administration could not cloak Its failure under the cl^im that It had not been allowed to carry out its plans. The mere fact tbat during the entire panic tbe silver coined under the Sherman act was kept in full circulation proves conclusively that the peo: -pie had no real fear of the value of the silver dollar, as the republicans left It, and the fact that all of that silver and more, too, is today in active demand, proves conclusively that the republicans had not carried silver coinage too far when the panic began. There was no greater weakness in our currency System in 1893 on account of silver than would have been with a bank system of credit money, in fact the flow of gold iromtbis country on account of the great demand among speculators in Argentine and other South American eeourities, would have proved more disastrous to a bank paper circulation redeemable on demand. The bank cur- yency advocates have tacitly admitted this, for while they are insistantonthe retirement of the greenbacks they are compelled to confess that the silver 4plla? as coined under republican legislation IB a safer and more satisfactory credit money, and all they ask is that it be officially BO declared. THE UPPER DBS MOINES believes DOW tbat tbe republicans voted wisely in repealing tbe Sherman » ot ' bo * h be " .cnufetbey thereby put the responsibility of failure squarely on the shoulders of the Cleveland administration, and because the Sherman act bad not accomplished what was expected of it. But TH$ UPPRR DB8 MOINES protests against &U0wing 'tbe Shernaan act at tbielftle day being made » fer ike, si»9 of tbe Cleveland Extra Session Not Probable. The general sentiment of all republicans will be that if President McKinley and his advisers think congress should be called In extra session next March there should be no quibbling about It, Grave matters are ahead and President McKinley has won public confidence by his caution and wisdom. It has been understood, however, for some time that the president does not wish an extra session if it can be avoided, and the republican papers of the state which have come out decidedly against it have done so to foil tbe attempt of the Indianapolis monetery association to force the president's hand. A concerted effort has been made and is still being made to prove to the president that Iowa republicans insist on an extra session. It has failed wholly, thanks to prompt and vigorous action by the republican press, and if President McKinley finally decides that an extra session Is inevitable it will be because of the urgency of the on, but we have an abiding faith in the coming of the railroad." THE UPPER DES MOINES had both the McGregor and the Des Moines Valley railways coming in the spring. In the Nov. 25 issue C. W. Tenney of Mason City writes " The grading of the McGregor line is now nearly completed between Calmar and Charles City and the route is ready I think to be located to Mason City or Clear Lake." As in the present times of railway excitement the map owners suffered. The editor thus complains: " That old chap who came into our office a few days ago and without securing the right-of-way built railways with a lead pencil all over Iowa in our new and beautiful Mitchell's atlas will do well to walk up and pay the damage If he Is able." -!- •*- •*A.

It was defeated by 43,059. Smith D. Fry telegraphes from Washington to the Des Moines Begister this bit of Information: It is said to be the purpose of the administration to request the legislative branch of the government to conclude all necessary legislation during the short session of congress, in order that there shall be neither necessity nor excuse for an extra session of congress in the spring. IN THIS NEIOHBOBHOOD. Mrs. Alex Younie of West Bend wil spend the winter in Colorado. Judge Helsell went to Chicago last week to put his eon Charles In school. Bob. Bloom of Garner is married, will save Bob, if any thing The election of a bishop of the Episcopal church of Iowa to succeed Bishop Perry has attracted great attention. Bev. Thos. E. Green of Cedar Bapids was first chosen, but last week he was beaten in a bitter contest. His opponents had hired a Pinkerton detective ,o hunt up gossip about him, and Lawyer Henry of Des Moines spent nearly ihree hours reading the accumulation to the convention. Col. Clarke and Bev. Green answered. Bev. Frank E. Day of Algona knew Bev. Green well while both lived at Cedar Bapids and when asked about the proceedings of the convention, he freely answered: " The action of the convention was that Dr. Green's eminent success in building up the leading church of his denomination in Iowa has had more to- do in arousing the opposition to action ^, .. than his rumored looseness in morals, for his enemies were careful to acquit him of guilt, while deftly blaming him for being talked about by people, who denied talking about him. The longer the matter is studied, the more absurd and indefensible seems the course of Dr. Green's foes. Had they opposed him on the grounds of incompetence it would have been different. But as he is confessedly the ablest preacher and administrator among them, the fact cannot be erased that the state convention has put Itself on record as rescinding a deliberate election of Dr. Greet* as bishop because of prejudices created by insinuations and inuendoes against biro, while it does not attack his right to remain a clergyman. Consistency would seem to demand further action to rid the church of a clergyman who, according to rumors given place on the floor of the convention, is unfit to be a rector. The whole transaction is unworthy any church, and certainly very cruel and unjust if, as it seems from all real evidence to be true, Dr. Green is. innocent." . Marriage will. "Billy" Calvey, a former printer in THE UPPER DES MOINES office, is with the Spirit Lake Beacon. Miss Ella Graham has been getting up an old maid's convention at Forest City. Who would haye thought it? W. Landman of Buffalo Center was in Algona last week on his way to Spencer to see Burns, alias Chapman, who forged a deed to his land in Grant. Iowa Falls Sentinel: D. J. Lyman has secured a position in a drugstore at Algona, and left for that place last week. The people of Algona will find our David to be all right. Speaking of Pitt Cravath Senator Funk says: " He is remembered by_the certainly a great surprise to me. I do not refer to the decisive vote by which Dr. Morrison was elected bishop of the Protestant Episcopal church for Iowa over Dr. Thos. E. Green, who had been elected at the special convention called soon after the death of Bishop Perry. That is a matter of interest only to the Protestant Episcopal people. But the methods pursued to compass Dr. Green's defeat are most astounding." " Would you feel free to specify what you mean?" "O, certainly. The course of the , . opponents of Dr. Green, who refused to acquiesce in his election at Davenport, is open to severe criticism in many points. The chief objection is the persecuting spirit that has seemed to control in the whole proceedings, the final crime of which was to institute a system of espionage against Dr. Green, which rendered it difficult for him to defend himself. The idea of employing Pinkerton detectives to manufacture campaign material would offend even coarse politicians. But that fellow churchmen should resort to it is a sad commentary on the bitterness and strife so shockingly at variance with the teaching of the church itself. When it is further considered that the convention, presumably a parliamentary as well as an ecclesiastical assem- new issues that are up and not because of any mistake as to party sentiment in Iowa or elsewhere. Smith D, Fry in Sunday's Begister telegraphs from Washington a paragraph of interest in this connection: " Senator Allison visited the white house and executive departments and pttended a meeting of the committee on postofflces for an hour. He remained at the capitol all day He says: 'I do not believe there will be an extra session. All necessary business can be transacted duriner the short session.'" ______ THE next congress should enact such legislation as is needed to insure a parity of all our money with gold, and to stop the "endless chain." There is no dispute about these points, and there is no public demand to go any further. NEWS AND OOMMENT. Paul Junkln, well known in Algona, has bought Jud. Welllver's paper at Corning. Jud will come back to Des Moines dally newspaper work, where he belongs, while Paul will give Corning an ideal weekly.

Goldfield Chronicle: THE UPPER DES MOINES says that next to Algona the new town, Titonka, has the prettiest name in Kossuth county. Titonka is certainly nothing if not picturesque. Webster City is not so swift after all. Only about 150 seasons tickets have thus far been sold for the lecture course and the first of the series is only four days off. Algona sold 500, and had to refuse more. Emmetsburg Democrat: Chapman, the Clay county land swindler, turns out to have been a former Kossuth county land swindler. He succeeds in making loans on farms he does not own. Kossuth furnishes rascals for most of the counties of Iowa, Emmetsburg Tribune: Lon Lillibridge, whose wife secured a divorce from him in court at Algona last week, returned from Chicago Monday evening laden with a new woman whom he married In the windy city. He resides near Whltteinore. West Bend Journal: Mrs. Dr. Tribon was chosen as the handsomest woman in Algona at the recent merchants' carnival there, and represented Columbia Mrs. Tribon was a West Bend girl, formerly Miss Vallie Frost. West Bend gets there everywhere. The Sheldon Mail has this note about the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J, E. Stacy: Mrs. C. Stinson is expected to return home next week to remain until after the holidays, when she will return to Chicago and continue the treatment she has been receiving there for some ttme.for the benefit of her health, Mr. Stinson is in Chicago with her this week. H. A. Clock, our old'time Algonian, caught a tramp thief at Hampton last bly, so far forgets itself aa to be led by Dr. Green's enemies into permitting mere rumors and detectives' purchased reports to be presented to it and ser- iouslv urged as reasons for the defeat of a reputable and eminent divine in the diocese, the case seems even more shocking and contemptible." " But did not Dr. Green's opponents apparently have reason for their unyielding opposition?" "I cannot see that Dr. Green's personal history enters into the matter. If, as alleged, Dr. Green was disqualified for the office of bishop, I cannot see how he is a fit man for the high position of a Christian minister. If he is morally unfit for the one he is unfit for the other. It looks like cowardice NEWS NOTES. Des Moines has sold $60,000 of 12 year bonds at 3 1-5 per cent, interest.

He saw an unknown man coming from Alex Hasler's residence with a bundle under his arm. Knowing that Mr, Hasler's people 'were away from home, Mr. Clock followed the fellow as far as the Iowa Central track, meanwhile sending word to Constable H. K.

He was found to have three suits ot olpthee on besides the suit be Btole frpw Mr. to appeal to rumors and Pinkerton espionage to break down a man's standing and to excite suspicions on which to ground a reason to oppose him as a candidate for bishop. It is all the more contemptible when the accusers protest that they do not make accusations, but only feel these rumors disqualify Dr. Green for the bishopric. The only manly, not to say Christian course, would have been to arraign Dr. Green on specific charges before a properly constituted ecclesiastical tribunal. An acquital there should haye effectually eliminated the moral character of Dr. Green as a factor in the contest for the bishopric. As It Is, a prominent rector, one elected a bishop, has been refused the vindication of a second election, and stands before hla church and the world under suspicion, while his record under the law of his church is as clean as that of any clergyman in his denomination. I cannot conceive of such an attack on a Methodist preacher being made on tbe floor of a conference, and it certainly Is a discreditable chapter In the history of the Protestant Episcopal church in Iowa." "Is Dr. Green's standing among Iowa clergyman such as one might imagine from the tone of the opposition to him?" "Dr. Green occupies an enviable place as a leading pulpit orator and successful rector. His following at Cedar Bapids seems enthusiastic and loyal. Personal acquaintance with him has led me to regard him highly, though I presume he and I look at many questions of principle and practice with very conflicting opinions. But in this be would prove no exception to the general rule among tbe clergy of - J aw inoltped, to believe A SUQQESTIQy TO ALGONA. Genial Bernard Murphy Tells How to Regulate Children Without a Curlew. Vinton Eagle: The children of Algona this state have gotten so Horribly bad that petitions are in circulation for a curfew ordinance. It is cited that the city marshal has been called to the reading room 50 times in the past two years to quell disturbances. Even THE; UPPER DES MOINES "has always believed that if the marshal would pick up a dozen boys and girls and keep them in jail over night the trouble would soon be over." We love a heart like that. Are we blessed with children or are we cursed with children?; We would denounce any man who would vote for a measure which in the very nature of its execution must brand eyery boy and girl as a criminal.
