THE Nevada ^Representative insists that the balloting on United States senator in tbe coming legislature be viva voce. It cites the fact that in Wisconsin QuarJee gained eight rotee as soon ae tbe balloting wae viva voce instead of secret, and it suggests tbs,t in tbe Iowa legislature many men will vote one way if their rotes are not made public, and will vote anotber if their constituents can read tbeir votes in tbe morning papers. Tbe Representative makes a vigorous argument for an open ballot. do o! THE Manchester Press thinks that THE UPPER DEB MOINES was making a personal fling at Col. Henderson in suggesting when be wagfiret mentioned tor the speakerehip that be probably could not be elected. Tbe Press is mistaken, lor there is no member of the Iowa delegation for whom THE UPPEE DjES MOINES entertains kindlier personal feelings. THE UPPEE DES MOINES meant merely to line itself •with those who see no benefits resulting from merely local, personal, or sectional efforts to do something there, ie no human probability of being able to do. There ie no special reason why the speaker of the house of representatives should be an Iowa man, or even a western man. To urge Col. Henderson on these grounds belittles hie candidacy. If by the fair judgment of his colleagues Col. Henderson is equipped for the epeakership, Iowa cannot rally to bis support too strongly. It is very complimentary to him that he appears to be so considered, and that from all parts of tbe country he is getting such support as puts him in tbe front rank of candidates. IT won't do to overlook the fact that the republicans of Iowa are watching more than two men when they figure on tbe next United States senator. flown and tn« lumber used IB repairing tbe b&latme <rf tbe building.

Clarke for the state senate. There are supposed to be otbere, but they are not yet out in tbe open. Burt Monitor: A. D. Clarke announces tbie week that be will be a candidate for senator from thie dietricl to succeed A. B. Funk. Mr. Clarke will have tbe loyal support of tbe Koe- euth county delegation and ie likely lo win. Wbittemore Champion: Mr. A. D. Clarke will make a most excellent senator and will put up a strong race for the place. A better candidate could not be nominated by the republican party than Mr. Clarke, and we believe be will get tbe nomination. Carroll Herald: Should Wm.

It is hoped that he will remain tbe year out at least. Estberville Republican: A. D.Clarke of Algona is a senatorial candidate for this district, and THE UPPER DES MOINES says "that it is practically conceded that he will be given tbe delegation from KoBsuth county, which means that he will go into the convention with strong chances of winning." Carroll Herald: A. B. Funk of Spirit Lake saye positively he will not permit the use of his name in the next senatorial convention in his district. He has had three termB and is determined that some one else shall have a turn. Hon. A. D. Clarke of Algona is a possible successor to the Spirit Lake senator. The Washington correspondent of the Louisville Courier-Journal writes about the speakerehip in congress and says: Henderson and Hepburn are both out of the question. But I can name a man who can be elected: all in all, be is the best fitted man for the place Reed left behind. I mean Dolliver. EmmetBburg Tribune, (Dem.): It looke now as if the deal was made whereby all the chances favoring Palo Alto county furnishing a candidate for senator from tbe 47th district were obliterated.

Marsballtown Times-Republican: A short time ago a petition was circulated in Bancroft, Kossuth county, asking A. D. Clarke of Algona to be a candidate for the republican nomination for the senate. The Palo Alto Reporter says that democrats signed it, whereupon Al. Adams of the Huraboldt Independent comes back with the suggestion that as there are gold democrats who have been voting the republican ticket we would better heed them, for we may need them, and they are disposed to stay with us. Mr. Adams, whose newspaper is now straight republican, knows what he is talking about, for he belongs to tbe class of which he speaks. F. W. Bicknell in Marshalltown Times-Republican: The Algona UPPER DES MOINES announces by authority that A. D. Clarke of Algona will be a candidate for state senator from the district composed of the counties of Kossuth, Palo Alto, Clay and Dickinson. THE UPPER DES MOINES adds that Mr, Clarke wiil have the support of Kossuth county, for all it is worth, without opposition, and bis nomination to succeed Senator Funk is considered quite probable. Mr. Clarke has lived in Algona a good many years, has grown up with the country, made his own way in the world from the start, and achieved a remarkable degree of success. In politics he has given and taken some good, bard blows, and through it all has preserved an independence that has often excited admir- CARL SETCBELL IK MANILA He Writes Entertainingly of the Situation Orer 6»ye the Battle wltfi tbe KatJves ie a Queer Proceeding and Jfot Easy to Describe. Mrs. Setchell hae received several letters from her son Carl during the past JO days, one of them describing tbe battle he was in. It is dated March 26, on the water works road, and part of it ie as follows: We left here about 2:30 yesterday morning and marched toward the mountains. At daybreak we occupied tbe Marquma road and about 5:30 we advanced along the whole line towards the enemy's intrenchments. We had gone about a mile when tbe rebels opened fire; advancing about 1,000 yards farther we returnt-.d the fire and sent volley after volley into the brush where the natives were located. Then we charged in a perfect hail of bullets and drove them for about two miles where we halted and rested for the remainder of the day. We only | OB t twelve in the entire regiment, but there were quite a number wounded I can l describe the battle. I hardly know what happened myself. It was a succession of charges, and tnecowardlv njggers broke and ran every time we yelled. Tbe battle field was a dried up rice swamp and the ridgee used in Irrigation afforded UK excellent protection The soft purr of tbe Mauser and the whirr and whistle of tbe Remington cannot be described. You have to bear t to realize bow awful it sounds. Tbe jest imitation I know of is a wire nail humming through the air. 1 toll you it was grand to see our long me of blue and brown advance, lie down, fire volley after vollev, and then charge again. We never wavered once hough the natives contested everv oot of the ground. It is rumored that the trenches be- ore Malabon were taken by our bovs with heavy loss, but I don't know whether ]t is true or not. I fee] first rate this morning considering that I haven't bad hardly a wink of sleep for three nights. The insurgents charged on the Colorado position about H o'clock last night and ive re- nforced them. The firing continued or about an hour, so few of us got anv leepas we had to watch them all ight. I was an out-post, and the Mauser bullets struck on all sides of us jut no one was hit. When we came in n tbe morning tbe company was just coming back from the colonel lines and we had been two miles from the company without support all night and never knew it. There were onlv six of us at the poet, BO it was a pretty tickel- ish piece of business. We came back on tbe water works f°«d this morning and will probably hold this line for a day or two and then advance on Malaboo and Mololos. ON THE MARCH. ..Tfa^foHowing letter is dated March dJ, and describee the inarch after tbe battle: Since I wrote my last hasty note we have been constantly on the move, advancing on Mulolos. We left our camp on (he water works road the evening of March 27, and marched without rest eight miles to Manila and on eeven miles more to Caloocan, where we lay down and slept for a few hours. The morning of the <i8th we took tbe train and advanced about six miles more to Malabon, which was taken by our forces* the 26tb We camped for the night at the railroad river bridge about three miles this side of Malaboo. The woods were full of dead natives, as we discovered while we made a skirmish about five miles along both banks of the river. We found some live ones, too, but thev were all scared to death and crawled up to UB on their hands and knees and kissed our hands, begging for mercy As they were only armed with knives we let them go. Yesterday we marched through mud and rain to our present position at Gui- guinto. Tbe depot here was full of our wounded, about thirty, and two or three dead. I tell you it made us all thirst for revenge to Bee our poor fellows all shot to death by those God forsaken wretches. Tbe whole race is not worth tbe little finger of the poorest private in the ranks. We are liable to move out of here and go on tbe firing line any minute so you will know the reason if this is chopped off short. We look like an army of tramps now. The whole corps is ragged and nearly black with a mixture of tan and dirt. We are nearly worn out, too, having had scarcely any sleep for nearly a week, and the food. policy of the United States a? manifested by President MeKicley. Mr. Me- Kinley is doing right. What other way ctnild be act? There is nothing else to do. Whether tbe war in the Philippines shall be tine of extinction or shall be otherwise settled, I am not prepared to say. Aguinaldo must be subdued, certainly. Other Afiuinaldos must be silenced also. I do not care to go so far ae some people and say that tbe men who attended and participated in the rectut anti-expansion meeting in Chicago are traitors and guilty of treason, but their acts were certainly wrong. President McKloley should be supported, and such conduct on tbe part of his fellow citizens ie ill-timed, and tends to encourage those savages over the way." BPIEIT LAKE OHAUTAUQUA.

In addition a Bubscription paper was circulated in town during the week to raise a fund for the baud and secure some open air concerts. The Algona band is easily one of the best in the state, and as regimental band it will soon be the beet. of a New Era. In a symposium in the Des Moines Capital on the meaning of Dewev's victory ini Manila, Rev. W. M. Walker said: Tbe nations of th 3 old world have not yet ceased to wonder at the achievement of Admiral Dewey, and as we read the story of his brilliant victory we pay instinctive tribute to tbe courage and daring which he displayed. Every man on board the vessels which entered the harbor of Manila, under the cover of darkness that April morning, knew that they were engaged in a desperate undertaking, and that defeat meant almost certain death. As by a miracle they made their way unharmed amid the storm of ehot and shell that fell around them, and struck a blow at Spanish despotism which has been heard around tbe world. Admiral Dewey's victory in the harbor of Manila not only put an end to Spanish tyranny in the Philippine islands forever, but it marked the commencement of a new epoch in the history of our United States. Hitherto '• America for the AmericHns" has been our watch-word. Possessing a territory imperial in extent and inexhaustible in its fertility, we have bad no desire to add to our domain. The war with Spain was not undertaken from lust of gold or greed of empire, but in the name of God and humanity, to save a suffering people from despair and death. We bad beard the pitiful cries of starving women and children; we had heard the methods of warfare worthy of the dark ages to which Spanish generals had resorted, and it was to put an end to a condition of things which, to the enlightened conscience of the American people, had become insufferable, that our fleets were manned and our armies marshalled. The war with Spain was undertaken for the purpose of wresting from a tyrant's grasp the Pearl of the Antilles. The larger responsibilities, which the war has thrust upon us, were not Last week Tuesday attorneys from Estberville appeared before Judge Quarton to argue a motion for a writ of habeas corpus in behalf of John Pederson of Armstrong, charged with murder. Tbe judge took tbe matter under advisement. The facts as published in the Armstrong papers reveal a very peculiar case, and one in which circumstantial evidence is relied upon to prove a great crime. The Journal's story is as follows, Anderson being the man who has disappeared and who is supposed to have been foully dealt with: Mr. Anderson owns the farm on which Pederson was living at the time of Anderson's disappearance. In tbe winter of 1897-98 Anton Anderson went to Omaha to spend the winter and hired tbe mac now accused of murdering him to take care of his horses. He returned about the middle of March, 1898, and about a week later disappeared and has not been seen or beard from since. John Pederson told those who inquired about Anderson that a man who was a stranger to bim came there one evening, staid over night and on the following morning he and Anton Anderson left. Baying they were going to Alaska. He states that the missing man told him be would be back in the fall, hired him to work the farm, and said he would send him money to pay the taxes. Evidently some of tbe I neighbors did not believe what Mr. Pederson said, and several of them sus- picioned foul play. Thursday an information was sworn out, a warra.nt issued and the arrest followed. The sheriff, county attorney and several citizens from Armstrong went out to the farm Thursday morning, and in the ashes of a burned straw stack hunted for the remains of Anton Anderson. The prisoner denied any knowledge of murder, said be and Anderson never bad any trouble, and reported the same story'that he bad told tbe neighbors about Anderson going to Alaska. In the ash pile were found several bones, some buttons and a piece of burned cloth. The preliminary hearing was commenced Friday afternoon, County Attorney Swett' prosecuting and C. W. Crim defending. Drs. Finlayson, Gannon and Thompson were called as expert witnesses. The two former testified that the bones bad the appearance of being those of a human being, but would not swear positively to that fact. Dr. Thompson swore positively that the skull bones exhibited were not tbe bones of a hog, but refused to swear that they might not be the bones of some other animal. The defendant did not go on the stand, but his explanation came to Algona with him. Later they moved to a farm north of Whittemore and here in 1882 two children died of diphtheria. In that year with Irving,, the only surviving child, they came bacK to Algona, where Mr. Dodge's rheumatism gradually crippled him more and more until death came to hie relief. Mrs. Dodge was highly esteemed by those who knew her, and was a woman of more than usual strength of character. She had been ailing for many years with stomach trouble, and was gradually growing weaker, but no fears were felt until It was too late. Her doctor did not suspect she was eo near the end, when death came. FEBBOKAL MOVEMEHTB. Mrs. W. B. Quarton and Mrs. C. O. Simpson are in Minneapolis fora week. Miss Ida Engle of Petoskey, Mich., is visiting her sister, Mrs. J. A. Brownell. Eastman, the hotel architect, was in town Friday. He is building a big block in Spencer. Jese Stepbeneon, who has been in Des Moinee for some time, came up Thursday for a visit. Master Ed win Cooke gives a party thie afternoon to all the babies. Ai- gona has a lot of pretty ones. The report that Mrs. Dr. Garfield will leaye Aleona is not wholly correct. She will go to Cleveland for an extended visit, but not to remain permanently. P. M. Leisbman of Rudd was a pleasant caller Monday. He is Kasby at Rudd and was looking over the Algona outfit with with a view to buying a new one himself. Mr. Brown was out from Chicago to represent an educational paper at the teachers- association and making a visit at Col. Cooke'e. He remained over Sunday. State Superintendent E. E. Collins of Vermillion, S. D., was attending the teachers' meeting last week and visiting S. A. Davenport, who used to go to school to him. Mrs. Lon Hardin came up from Ames for the teachers' meeting and to see Alpona in a dry editor and postmaster could not come. time. Lon is at Ames, and about tbe bones were bogs that he had in the straw awfully scarce. Some ation. He has always been a very active republican, and served one term in the legislature. The factional quarrels in Kossuth county are, it is understood, settled or at least suspended for this occasion. Mr. Clarke would make a most excellent senator. Ueacb and Bowers Dletmnd.

The company die- band this evening until fall, as seven or eight of their best men have left for umroer engagements, but will return next season. too, has been days we have had nothing but hardtack, and some of the boys didn't even have that. The wagon train came up last night, and this morning we had a good breakfast. Mololos is on fire today. Dewey ehelled it this morning. It ie the last stronghold of the natives, and it is thought that they have over 30,000 troops there against the 10,000 we have now in this part of the island, but we can lick them even if they had 100,000. Our Springfields are no [food over 700 yards while the natives at 1,800 yards stand up in plain sight and shoot at us. Their guns carry that far and if they were any kind of shots they could kill us all off before we got to them. As it is, they run just as soon as we get foreseen from the beginning, but surely we cannot fail to recognize the hand of God in the progress of events. Out of the smoke of flame and battle there has within range, rifles in the We found 30 Mauser river where the natives arisen a broader conception of our duty and henceforth not "America for the Americans," but "America for the world" must be our cry. This new epoch in our national life upon which we have suddenly entered, brings new dnngers, but it also brings added opportunities. Perhaps this is God's way of hastening tbe triumph of bis kingdom. Lying just off the shores of China when evangelized, as under American rule they surely will be, the Philippine islands will furnish a base of operations from which the spiritual conquest of Asia's millions can best be attempted. And thus Admiral Dewey's victory iii the harbor of Manila may not mean the commencement of a only new burned some dead stack. The trial was before Justice Canton, who bound the defendant over to await the action of the grand jury. Judge Quarton thie morning released Pederson, the evidence being held insufficient. DOLLIVEE'S LEOTUEE. Defends tbe Course of This Country In tbe Philippines Before a Large and Enthusiastic Audience. Congressman Dolliver came to Algona for his lecture Monday evening direct from Chicago, where be wae one of the principal epeakers at the big mass meetings held to answer the "copper heads" and to sustain the administration. He spoke at both Central Music hall and the Auditorium. The Chicago Record, which is independent in politics, gives Dolliver the best mention of the list of speakers and says: "Congressman J. P. Dolliver of Iowa kept the audience laughing from his opening sentence until he left tbe platform. When he sneered the crowd hissed, when his voice took on a patriotic ring the people cheered, anil when he choose to crack a joke a roar of laughter followed." A big audience was out to hear Mr. Dolliver in Algona. He reviewed the early history of this country briefly and then turned to the problems that now confront us, and in a masterly manner sustained the attitude of our soldiers and sailors and the public sentiment that is behind them. He disposed absolutely of the pretenses of the anti- administration people, and exposed the sham liberty promised by Aguan- aldo in the Philippines. He was enthusiastically cheered, a tribute to his oratory and an expression of the sentiment of his audience. He never spoke better in Algona, and fully sustained the reputation he now bears all over this country of being the foremost orator of congress. Among- tbe Algona visitors last week were Emily Reeve, county superintendent of Franklin county, and Mrs. Ellen Reed, county superintendent of Clay Both are well known in Kossuth. There are 11 lady superintendents in Iowa. _Rev Day went to Muscatine last night for the state A. O. U. W. meeting. Charlie Laage is also attending and Mrs. A. F. Dailey is also there as delegate to the Degree of Honor. They will all work to bring the grand lodge to Algona in 1900. Charlie Larrabee was down from Armstrong to spend Sunday.
