Last %eek at AjVftshlngton a caucus of democratic congressmen got together to agree upon a policy for the party, Thfl meeting.was not wholly successful. The silver men, who fear a movement to side track Mr, Bryan, wanted something Bald about silver and were disappointed. All sorts of opinions pre- Y&lled as to expansion, and when the resolution that was finally agreed upon was adopted it did not express the real sentiments of some of the ablest leaders. A resolution, however, was adopted as follows: "We hold that the constitution of the United States was ordained and established for an Intelligent, liberty-loving and self governing people, and cannot be successfully applied to a people of different virtues and conditions. We therefore hold that a colonial policy is contrary to the theory of our government and subversive of those principles of civil liberty which we have been taught to cherish. We believe with the declaration of Independence that all governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and we are unalterably opposed to the establishment of any government by the United States without the consent of the people to be governed, and In conformity with these prln- ' ciples we instruct the minority members of the foreign affairs committee to Introduce and urge the following resolution: "Resolved, That the United States here by disclaim any disposition or Intention to exercise permanent sovereignty, jurlsdlc tlon or control over the Philippine islands, and assert their determination, when an independent government shall have been erected therein, to transfer to said government upon terms which shell be reasonable and just all rights secured under the cession of Spain, and thereupon to leave the government and control/of the islands to their people." Until President MoKinley's commission that Is looking the Philippines over reports, and the policy of the republican administration is decided upon, it is impossible for anyone to know how much of an issue the concluding section of this resolution will raise in national politics. If the Filipinos are capable of running a government of their own better than the Americans can assist them to run there may be no issue. But if they are not, as everybody believes now they are not, the dividing line in 1900 may be as here stated, for the republican party will not run away from its plain duty in the face of any such pronunoiamento as this. If the issue is to be between an immediate turning over of thePhilippines to Aguinaldo and his brigands as these 'democratic congressmen demand, and the establishment of stable government and the promotion of civil order as the republicans are pledged to, the republicans may well welcome this resolution, for Its preamble is false as a matter of history, and absurd in view of existing conditions elsewhere than in the Philippines. Before the debate is half over the democrats will find that they have got to repudiate every annexation of territory from the purchase of Florida to the treaty with Hawaii, if they stand by this high sounding declaration, as well as denounce as an unrighteous aggression nearly every act of this republic from forcing the declaration of Independence on the unwilling tories to compelling Utah to elect a congressman with only one wife. fces Moines. this date will postpone thd necessity for- early nominations for the legislature aad the senate in Kossuth. Dea Moines has filed a bond to have a new auditorium ready. It is to stand two blocks north of the Savory hotel. NEWS AND OOMMENT. Ed. Sherman, a younger brother of Thos. Sherman of Bancroft, is doing some vigorous editorial writing these days on the Fort Dodge Post. He will be a prominent newspaper man in Iowa. Senator Gilbertson of Forest City is being mentioned by the papers of his district for a renomlnatlon. THE UPPER DBS MOINES does not know that he wishes to continue in the senate, but if he does or is willing to, we do know that a better man cannot be found in this part of the state. He is genial, clear headed, attentive and influential, and a credit to northern Iowa. Senator Funk says he is going to stay by his Spirit Lake Beacon. His friends never attached any Importance to the rumor that he was going to the Dos Moines Capital, but many of them would like to see him on an influential dally, that Is if It were not for losing him from Oplrlt Lake. The DOB Moines Capital is not satis- fled with the hesitation manifested all over Iowa over the succession to Senator Gear's seat. That hesitation Is one of the most hopeful signs in Iowa politics. The state can better afford to spend six months In selecting a man than to spend six years in trying to get rid of him. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. $10,500 pledged for a a $20,000 Dolliver and the Senate. The Odebolt Chronicle, which is anti- Gear in capital letters, says: " Why is that Congressman Dolliver's mends declare that he will not enter the senatorial race unless Senator Gear withdraws? Has Mr. Dolliver pledged his support to Gear? Please explain." The Chronicle seems to be. drawing on its suspicions, THE UPPER DES MOINES has been for some time on the watch for some declaration from the friends of Congressman Dolliver, and has failed thus far to learn of any. We do not believe that anyone with any authority to speak has thus far said anything whatever about Mr. Dolliver's plane or wishes. He has plenty of friends who think he is by ability, service, and experience entiled to be the young man from Iowa«o succeed Senator Gear, but they haj;I received no encouragement from h|Jn, whether Senator Gear stays in the field or withdraws. Tne mere fact that Mr. Dol- liver'a closest political supporters at Fort Dodge are openly for Mr. Cummine in case Mr. Dolliver is not a candidate, ought to satisfy the Chronicle. Ohag. E, Picket^, Chairman. E. Picket! of Waterloo, who for some years been known on the Stijmp and elsewhere as one of Iowa's best public speakers, has been named fpr temporary chairman of the coming republican elate convention.

The Swea City Herald is enlarged and in every way improved this week. V. S. Ellis is getting out one of the best papers in the state considering his field. Brltt News: Algona contributed $13,000 to finish paying the debt on the new M. E. church and raised $5,500 BH a bonus for a new hotel. Very liberal people those Algonians. Mrs. Epperson, the lady evangelist who assisted in the revival meetings at the Methodist church at Livermore some years ago, will hold meetings at Lu Verne commencing about the middle of March. Mrs. A. J. Robison gave a 12:30 breakfast to her lady friends at her home in Britt Tuesday. The News says: The breakfast consisted of five courses and the tables were elegantly decorated with roses and carnations. After breakfast a social game of cards was enjoyed by those present. Ltvermore Gazette: Glen Brunson is back from Minnesota, where he has been letting U. S. mall contracts for Ambrose Call of Algonn.. * * * Bert Norton was here from West Bend over Sunday visiting his mother—and incidentally entertaining his mother's guest, Miss Nettie Edmonds of Algona. Emmetsburg Tribune: Algona let the contract for a $14,310 school building to the Gross Construction company last week. Algona evidently intends to have something worth looking at in the way of buildings by the time Bige- Ipw is ready to turn on the electric light, having just finished a church edifice costing nearly $29,000. F/J. Stuenders has bought the Ledyard Leader, and Prof. Connor, who has been editing it a few weeks steps out. The professor has been a good news gatherer, and the new man gives promise of being one. The Webster City Freeman says: Frank Staenders of this city has purchased the Ledyard Leader and will take possession of the paper the first of March. Frank is an industrious and deserving young man and we wish him success in bis new field of labor, An amusing incident occurred while court was In session at Forest City. Tho Summit in referring to the matter said: There was an applicant for naturalization papers and had a friend to vouch as to his character and just claims for citizenship. Upon Judge Kelley asking the friend whether he thought the applicant would make a good citizen he answered: "Yes, I think he would. The only thing I know against him is that he takes John Anderson's paper and I am afraid he will be a d pop- pastor. Rev. Jennings is Well remembered by all pioneers.

The date of the organization of the AJgonn class Is not a matter of local record, but it is known to have existed as early as 1855, and until 1862 its connection was maintained as an appointment on a circuit covering nearly as much territory as a presiding elder's district includes now. In 1862 Algona mission was established with the following appointments: Algona, Hand's Grove, Suraner, Lotts Creek, Irvington, West Fork, Rolfe, and Black Cat. The size of circuits may be imagined by reference to the record of 1865, which contains the following sentence: "The outside appointments were Armstrong Grove, Seneca, Greenwood, Lowries, Black Cat, Buffalo Fork, Rice, Darien, Irvington, Lotts Creek, and some others." The first quarterly meeting which transacted any business of importance to Algona was held in March, 1866, when the first board of trustees was organized to hold property for the class. This board consisted of S. G. A. Reed, W. W. Dean, A. A. Cal), T. D. Stacy, Wra. B. Moore. The first Sunday school was organized in 1868. The first parsonage In which the Algona church had an Interest was located in Irvington and consisted of a log house, sold In 1867 for $300, one- half of which was turned into the treasury of the Algona class. It was used to purchase lots on east McGregor street, where a house was built and occupied for a short time as a parsonage. It was disposed of and the net returns of $650 were used to purchase as a parsonage the residence now occupied by G. H. Lamson. This property was sold later, and the proceeds were used in fruitless investments. No church building was secured until 1880, when Rev. Bennett Mitchell, D. D., succeeded in launching the enterprise which resulted In dedicating the edifice, recently vacated, by Dr. W. X. Nlnde, now a member of the board of bishops. Worship up to that time was held in residences, court room, and school house, and for a time in the chapel of Algona college, which failed by reason of the stress of money occasioned by the grasshopper scourge which afflicted this locality for four consecutive years. The pastors serving this charge are as follows: H, C. Law.ton, 1856-8; H. D. Burleigh, 1858-60; D. P. Billings, 1860-2; W. F. Hoi brook, 1862-4; W. S. Dorwin, 1864-5; E, H.

Flanigan. 1891-2; Robt. Bagnel), 1892-4; G. H. Kennedy, 1894-5; G. W. Southwell, 1895-7; Frank E. Day, 1897. The Algona district was organized in 1873, and has been served by thefollow- ing presiding elders: Holmes, 1856-60; J. B. Taylor, 1860-4; D. Lament, 1864-8; J. W. Todd, 1868-72; J. H, Todd, 1872-8; Bennett Mitchell, 1873-7; H. D. Brown, 1877-81; R. C, Glass, 1881-5; G. W. Pratt, 1885-90; W. A. Black, 1890-6; D. M. Yetter, 1896. He Known Whether the JDenlson-Al- ftoiia Lin* Will lie Huiit-Evel-y- body Else In the Dark. All sorts of opinions prevail about the proposed Northwestern line from Denison to Algona. Mr. Brown, the right-of-way man, thinks it is to go in this spring. Others In the employ of the company say they think it will not. The Pocahontas Record discusses the proa and cons as follows: While the editor of the Record believes that the Northwestern company intends to build a line of rnllroad from guc City to Algona or Burt, on the surface there is nothing to Indicate the intention of that company to construct such a line except a survey that was made last fall from Sao City through Fonda, through Pocahontas to Reubens, and also a second survey which left the line at this place and ran to Rolfe. Since the surveyors quit work last full the company has done nothing further towards the construction of this limi. We hardly believe that the Northwestern company made this survey and virtually announced to the public that they Intended to build this line us a bluff. At the same time there is but one own who can sny whether the line will be constructed or not, and that man Is Marvin Hnghitt, the president of the Northwestern company. At the present time neither the Record nor n.ny- ono else has been able to discover whiit Marvin Hujfhltt thought about thn matter. The 'only remedy for this unsettled state of affairs in to pass a law that railroad presidents should issue n proclamation the same as the president of thu United States docs, outlining what they thought was best for their compnny and the general public, ntid It might be provided further in that law that the proclamation should not be made up of glittering generalities, that every promise should be carried out before the end of the year, or the president of tho company making the proclamation should be hanged to the nearest lamp post. Now that wo are speaking on this subject wti desire to impress on the minds of our readers that we do not possess any supernatural information on tbo subject, and, furthermore, we don't know, a gol-darned thing about miy riiilrond building Into Pooahontns. And nt tho same time we hnve our suspicions. If you want any direct information on the question as to whether PocahontiiB is to have a railroad or not, we iid vise you to purchase one of Hick's almanacs and see what he saysaboutit. If he snyfi l- on or about tlm'time during a storm period running from the 14th to the 17th," you'd better buy an umbrella or apeak to the ticket aerent for transportation over the new railroad from Sac City to Algona. HnDronds In All Directions. Estherville Vindicator: Algona is already talking wholesale concerns. With the roads which are almost certain to be built this year, that town will have access to territory in seven different directions. LEGAL NOTICES. SHERIFF'S SALE.
