There will be a delegate convention of the republicans of Iowa held in the city of Des Moines, Iowa, on Wednesday, August 2, at 11 o'clock a. m., for the purpose of placing In nomination a candidate for each of the following officers, viz.: For governor, for lieutenant governor, for judge of the supreme court, for superintendent of public Instruction, for railroad commissioner, and for the transaction of any other business that may properly come before a republican state convention. The ratio of representation will be as follows: One delegate at large from each county, and one additional delegate for each two him dred (200) votes or fraction of one hundred (100) or over cast for Hon. Geo. L. Dobson. republican candidate for secretary of state at the general election held November 8, 1808. The representation for the counties comprising our Senatorial district will be as follows: Clay, 8: Dlckenson, 0; Emmet, 7; Palo Alto, 8; Kossuth, 11. Welcome to the Teachers. Algona welcomes the school teachers of northern Iowa. Its welcome is real, for Algona has always put a high estimate on schools and teachers. It welcomes them with fine school buildings, with a splendid corps of teachers well paid, with a record of asking for the best service in education that it can afford. Algona is an educational town, with an educational history. From the old days when Father Taylor walked to Iowa City to attend the first meeting of county superintendents eyer held in Iowa education has been a town hobby. The Northwestern University of Iowa, Algona College, the Northern Iowa Normal school all have been honest efforts to promote higher education on the frontier. We are proud of our record. It is with this record in view that we join in doing all honor to our guests. There is nothing too good for the school teacher in Algona. A. D. Clarke's Candidacy. A. D. Clarke has during the past week formally announced his candidacy for the senate to succeed Senator Funk. THE UPPER DES MOINES finds upon inquiry that it is practically conceded that he will be given the delegation from Kossuth county, which means that he will go into the convention with Strong chances of winning. He was a candidate four years ago and barely missed the nomination. He is wel known all over the district, is an early comer to this part of Iowa, has made his own way in the world and has many personal, business, and political friends. Kossuth will present his name to the convention with a united front and with a view to securing his nomination. THE Nevada Representative says Col. Henderson is, all in all, the best qualified man for speaker in congress. Judge Thomas said in Des Moines last week that ho had found during his short stay in Washington that the colonel is very highly regarded as a parliamentarian and executive officer. An enthusiastic support is assured from many western states and his chances are more than even. Col. Henderson has a host of friends, and if he has the qualities that go to make a strong man in the chair, they will all help him win with hearty good will. CONGRESSMAN DOLLIVER delivered one of his great orations at the New York celebration of Grant's birthday, a synopsis of which appears in this issue. THE jury brought in a verdict of $ 200 against late Secretary of State Mo- Farland and his bondsmen. This is the amount they find he had assessed the census clerks out of their wages, which under the rulings of the court he could be held for. Attorney General Remley may appeal for the state, as he thinks that the lower court's rulings let Mo- Farland out of a considerable part of bis real liability. McFarland admitted in his testimony collecting part of the wages from various clerks. But he contended tha.t he did not fix their wages and that it was none of the state's business what they did with thorn after the state paid them. oration was delivered by A> Estabrook of Chicago at i Moines Grant club banquet last Eloquent is a word Jbat is much cheapened by its common use, but eloquent in its real sense fit- tingly-describee this masterly review pf Granfe career. An audience thai kftj partaken 0* a CQld Iowa banquet, and that was stirred by no great issue, and that was critical in stiff collars and tight vests cheered until the orator was compelled to rise and bow. That is something that don't happen often. THE editor of THE UPPER DES MOINES was a delegate to the national editorial association at Denver .last year, and at the last moment was unable to attend. Miss Mina Murray had expressed a willingness to go and his credentials were made out for her. Here is the sequel of this lucky turn as given by the Charles City Press: " There is a pretty romance connected with the recent sale of the Murray interest of the Nashua Reporter and it all came about through the editorial pilgrimage to Denver less than a year ago. Among the editors who had left their scissors, their paste bottles and their quills for a season of travel and enjoyment was Miss Mina Murray, editor of the Reporter. After working hard she entered into the spirit of the trip cordially and had a delightful time. At Cripple Creek the company stopped for a visit to this modern home of Midas' gold and casually to visit the great Cripple Creek mine. While in the city Miss Murray met a Mr. SchWeinberger. (The name may not be spelled correctly, but there is little in a name anyhow.) It was a case ol love at first sight, and Schweinberger is responsible for causing the district to lose the 'Woman in White.' He wrote to her, of course, upon her return and came twice to see her, which is evidence enough in our mind that she answered the letters. Now she has sold her paper and they are to be married soon. The- gentleman is well to do and interested in the Cripple Creek mining industry, but that would make little difference to the ' Woman in White.' If she wanted Mr. Schwein- berger she would take him. money or no money. Here's a cup full of hap piness and now and then a splash over the brim." COPPERHEAD is a very offensive but very pointed term. What is the dif ference between the distinguished men who gathered in Chicago to denounce "McKinley's war" and the equally dis tinguished men who in 1861 talked about " Lincoln's Hirelings?" Wherein does Edward Atkinson, sending literature to the soldier boys in Manila to encourage them to revolt, differ from Vallandingham? WE can't feel just the same towards Helen Gould. She may be all right, but we can't encourage the idea of having Kossuth county lovers arrested before they get in a word. And besides that Bracke had bought patent leathei shoes and a plug hat. What does Helen expect? It is not every New York woman who gets an invitation to share a good farm in Kossuth. stand the situation, he is diligently filling the office of congressman and is not directly or indirectly in the present contest. If any of the present avowed candidates fail to secure a ma' jority of the republican legislators whose duty it will be to elect a senator, and a sharp contest is precipitated, Mr. Dolliver is a man who, because of his talents and recognized fitness, would be satisfactory to all classes and eminently so to a large majority who haven't any special interests to further and therefore want the best man available chosen. IN THIS NEIQHBORHOOD. A Fort Dodge man is getting a horseless carriage. The Odd Fellows of this district expect to celebrate at Algona Thursday, June 8. Will A. Calvey, a once well known printer- in THE UPPER DES office, has t_aken the Keeley cure and tells about it in the Spirit Lake Beacon, where he is at work. Many friends hereabouts will wish him release from further temptation. Grading on the Northwestern is being pushed rapidly. Mr. Mulligan of Dubuque, who has the contract foi grading 12 miles from the Kossuth county line west, has a force of about 150 men and teams at work and his contract is to be completed Aug. 1. FOLITIOAL NOTES. J. B. Romans of Denison is talked of as democratic candidate for governor. E. P, Barringer announces his can didacy for the legislature in Palo Alto This means undoubtedly that M. L. Brown will not be a candidate for the senate. Mr. Barringer is a good man for the lower house and will doubtless be nominated. . Glidden Graphic; Dolliver is a candidate for senator in the sense that his eminent qualifications put him /prominently among the few eligibles for a position of this sort in the state. So far he has not assumed the initiative in a movement looking to an active participation in the campaign for the place, and we have no knowledge of his intention in the premises. He belongs to a class of men like Senator-elect Beveridge of Indiana, and Quarles of Wisconsin, and Cummins, now a candidate in Iowa—men who through sheer torce of ability and character are sometimes selected by common consent. They Are men who, after an ideal conception ol what a senator should be is formed, are measured and found to fill '- 9 Mil in §very way, Aj We un,der« NEWS NOTES. Lee Richardson, who entertained the crowds at the Koasuth county fair, is now a feature of the Siegel & Cooper bicycle show in Chicago. He gives exhibitions at their store three times a day. Rlngling Bros, have under consideration a scheme to establish a permanent place of amusement In Chicago. The scheme is to lease a quarter block as near as possible to the heart of the city and to erect upon it an immense building, with seating capacity for 5,000 or more, and a great stage, upon which a regulation-size circus ring and a big platform space may be placed. The intention is to give performances something on the order of their present circus, with only the best performers; also, to put on great extravaganzas or comic operas, with mounted choruses and scenes in which the performers ride in on elephants and camels. Beneath the stage and the auditorium it is proposed to put in the stables and the menagerie of the present circus. The front portion of the building will be given up to offices so as to insure income aside from the speculative feature of the enterprise. The success of the present season of their circus at Tnttersalls has convinced the Ringlings that such a permanent exhibition would pny in Chicago. A. D. OLAKKE A CANDIDATE. Ho Will Ask Kossutli to Present His Name In the Senatorial Con volition. Mr. A, D. Clarke, in reply to the petition urging him to make the sena- atorial race published two weeks ago, gives in for publication the following: Editor Bancroft Register—Dear Sir: In response to a petition signed by many of my friends at Bancroft, and published in the Register, asking me to be a candidate for state senator, permit me to say that I have considered the matter carefully, and notvvithstanding it will be no small sacrifice in a business way, I cheerfully comply with their request and trust that they will never have cause to regret their generous action, and If nominated and elected, I may prove worthy of their confidence and esteem. Very truly yours, A. D. CLARKE. Uulley Visits Geo. E. Uoyle. Britt Tribune: The Britt Academy of Sciences met on Tuesday and the faculty went on a junketing tour and scientific investigation into the wilds of Whittemore. Professor Treganza, who was raised principally on black jack and dry bone on the classic slopes of Hazel Green, and who finds "sermons in stones" and such things, accompanied by the highly accomplished and recherche scribe of this paper, were among the party. Geo. E. Boyle, the Stephen A. Dquglas republican of Whittemore, and & man of Jeffersonian simplicity bordering on embonpoint, owns a bank over there with a rock in the window. Not that the town is particularly rocky, but this rock is one that is liable to catch the stony gaze of the passer by. The hallucination seemed to have permeated the minds o_f several of the good citizens of Whittemore, that the aforesaid rock was from the celestial heavens, and had been pitched into Kossuth county by mistake, in short that it was a meteor. Ever since Ben Smith sold John Anderson a black dornoch for a high price, meteors have been more or less common in northern Kossuth and Winnebago counties anyhow, and there is no more reason why Geo. Boyle shouldn't have a meteor or two than John Anderson. Meteors are just- a little erratic in their aerial flight, so is John Anderson and so is Geo. Boyle by spells, and we really think George should have a 40 pound meteor attached to the tail of his kite to keep him from wabbling and it was to lookup the pedigree of this particular stone that the Britt scientists were in Whittemore. Mr. Treganza investigated the stone and we interviewed Boyle. By a close analysis we have come to the following conclusion on Boyle and the stone. Mr. Treganza's notes and our own having got mixed we have no time to sort them now before going to press. The analysis shows: Hornblende with large bumps of philopro- genittveness, silica a trace, with amativeness like a wen, pyrophysalite in streaks, oombativeness ditto, ortho- olase, pugnacity, borite, pertinacity, hematite, intrepidity, peotolite," impetuosity, franklinite, Calhounite, and Campbellite, with several idiosynora- oies, vagaries and minerals untraoed. It was unanimously agreed, too, that neighor Whittemore .production was a fossil or of celestial origin. The fact that they could produce a large irregular shaped hole in the ground where it Is said the meteor struck, proves nothing, as a Kossuth county blue sky mortgage makes an aperture of this desorip- ;ton. No they are purely terrestrial. TWENW-FIVE oz. goffee for 25o at M. ?. Qrpye Stiff Hats v were 81.50; now. 85c Boy's Waist was 25c; now. .15c Linen Collars .10c werelSc: now.

HOBT NEBEKGALL'SI ACCIDENT, Was Ulown Up While Blasting Rock —Horribly MaiiKled. Passengers on the south bound train on the Mason City and Fort Dodge witnessed a pitiable spectacle Monday. When the train reached Florence, a little station near Clarion, some men bore to the train on a stretcher an object that afterwards proved to be the mangled remains of E. H. Nebergall of Eagle Grove. Life wns still present, but the man's body was literally torn to pieces. Nebergall with some other workmen was engaged at Florence in blasting rock with dynamite for a house foundation. The charge was being primed when the explosion occurred. One of the workmen had just stepped back, but Nebergall was bending over it when the charge exploded and he was blown a distance of several feet. When picked up his body was torn and mangled almost beyond recognition. The hands were in shreds and the flesh was torn from his limbs and sides. The accident happened about 6 o'clock in the afternoon and the suffering man was taken to the station and put aboard the train which passed through there shortly afterwards and sent to Eagle Grove, where he makes his home with his mother. He was still able to talk and spoke of a severe pain in his side, which made it difficult for him to breathe, giving the impression that he had been hurt internally. A NARROW ESCAPE. The Week's Weather Report. The state report says all conditions for growth of vegitation have been favorable the past week. Spring wheat, oats and barley germinated quickly, and generally show a good stand. Active preparations are in progress in all sections for planting corn, and with fa,- vorable weather a good beginning will be made during the first week in May. Reports indicate a probable increase in the acreage of corn compared with last year, in consequence of winter-killing of wheat and clover and the unfavorable conditions for early seeding of small grain. The spring pig crop is likely to be much lighter than usual. EXCEPTIONALLY low rates to Roanoke, Va., via the Northwestern line.
