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 hun dred (200) votes or fraction of one hundred (100) or over cast for Hon. Oeo. 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. ..ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MAY 24, ANNOUNCEMENT. I am a candidate for representative from Kossuth county, subject to the decision of the republican convention. S. X. WAT. THE supreme court affirms Judge _Quarton's decision that Louie Lange pay $200 for libel. Louie called a jus- 4 tlce of the peace In his bailiwick a thief and a robber, by implication at least. This Is the case that Judge Helsell tried and Judge Quarton decided which so much excited Louie during last fall's campaign. It was affirmed although no argument was submitted in behalf of the appellee. to be accepted to prove the contrary. Mr. Cummins has shown himself entirely honest In politics, and has never attempted to gain a point by denying his record. It is undoubtedly unfortunate for him now that he Identified himself so closely with the Boles campaign and with democratic politics In Polk county. But Mr. Cummins Is a republican. THE Odebott Chronicle prints a report to the effect that Gov. Shaw wants a preacher tor president of the stale university. There is no foundation for it. Gov. Shaw is one of the most level headed members of the board of regents and takes the broadest view of what the university ought to expect and ought to secure in its next president. Gov. Shaw will Insist upon a man of the highest moral character, but the board is a unit on that point. JUDGE CARR of Des Moines has been in Washington. He finds Geo. E. Roberts in the best of health and a very decided expansionist and annexatlonlst. On the other hand M. D.' O'Connell Is neither an expansionist norannexation- ist and he has been compelled to come home on account of sickness. THE State Register reporter in a column of political news makes this statement: "By some it has been predicted that when Senator Gear should say the word, Congressman J. P. Dolliver would come out as a candidate and draw the district away from Cummins, so as to deliver it ultimately to the senator." If Congressman Dolliver were an inconspicuous figure in Iowa politics who happened to have a local pull, there might be an excuse for such an intimation. But what does the Register expect to accomplish by it, when Mr. Dolliver is at least as public a figure as either Senator Gear or Mr. Cummins, and when his candidacy if it should be announced would at once justify itself in the eyes of the whole country? What reason does the Register or any state paper have for suggesting that Congressman Dolliver would become a candidate for United States senator merely to be a cat's paw for Senator Gear or anybody else? There ought to be a limit to such petty insinuations when the prominent republicans of Iowa are being considered in connection with a great office, to which they are entitled to aspire. There are thousands in Iowa who would like to see Congressman Dolliver chosen senator. They may be able to present his name and they may not. If they do he will be a candidate in his own right, and his support will not be " delivered" to anybody because in the first place no one can " deliver" it and in the second place because he of all men would not attempt to "deliver" it. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. The Northwestern has let the contract for widening Its grade from Rolfe to Havelock, no one knows what for. The town of Hawarden has passed an ordinance prohibiting the use of barbed wire within the corporation. Sheldon has had such an ordinance for some time. Estherville Vindicator: More Kossuth notoriety. With dog suits, and horse suits, and blue sky suits, and suicides, etc., etc., nil eyes are turned on Algona ever. In Webster City the assessed values of real estate under the new law have decreased $00,628and personal property $39,648, In spite of a big raise in full valuation of the property. The falling off is due to the change from a 33t to a 25 per cent, assessment. Britt News: H. A. Welgand of Algona has rented rooms over Way Bros. & Healy's drug store and will establish a cigar factory beginning the first of June. This will be a factory of much benefit to our city as he expects to employ several mechanics. A. H. Langdon, our former Algo- nian, Is superintending the work on the Milwaukee at Sac City. The Sun says: Mr. Langdon's headquarters probably will be at Storm Lake and one of his assistants will have immediate supervision of the work at Sac City. The Garner Signal says the prospect is good that Geo. C. Howard, the Titonka boomer, will have control of the laying out and sale of lots of fifteen new towns on the new line of the Minneapolis & St. Louis railway from New Ulm, Minn., to Storm Lake, Iowa. Ho knows how to boom a new town and under his management they will grow like Jonah's gourd. There is plenty of good fishing about the Dickinson county lakes, but the best hauls this week have been from Minnewashta. This is the lake from which so many thousand fish were hauled early in the spring to keep them from smothering, and it was supposed the supply in that water would be much reduced, but it is said anybody can make a haul there right now. The catch is mostly pickerel a foot to fifteen inches in length, but JO and 12 pounders have been taken. The Beacon says: Men, women and children stand on the shore, bait their hooks with almost any old thing and get immediate results. Many hooks baited simply with a flannel rag have hauled out fish by the dozen. stnfDAt soHooi. ootrvEflTioH. The County Sunday School Convention' WAS Well Attended—Some Resolutions Adopted.

CONGRESSMAN HULL cites an unfortunate precedent when he says he will exclude all but republicans from his West Point appointments because southern congressman exclude all but democrats. The captain must remember that the republican party has not been built up by imitating the faults of others. What southern democrats do is a mighty poor example for anybody, much less for Iowa republicans. IT seems that 28 years ago Gov. Shaw was a member of the Monroe cornet band and played an E flat tuba at the laying of the corner stone of the present capitol. The governor has had a remarkable career bet ween the laying of that corner stone and the laying of the corner stone of the state historical building. ^THE Ford bill, over which Gov. Theodore Roosevelt has nearly had a break . with the Platt machine in New York, provides for taxing city franchises as real estate. For instance, if the street railway is worth $10,000,000 while its actual cars and equipment are worth but $2,000,000, there is $8,000,000 in the franchise which the Ford bill arranges to have duly assessed. Gov. Roosevelt Will sign the Ford bill in spite of the great pressure on him, and has called an extra session of the legislature to amend a few of its provisions. SENATOR PEPPER could have come •back to republicanism and not eo mortally offended his brother populists if be bad kept still about the money question being practically disposed of. But when be says there is no further money issue, he gives his old partners a parting' slap they will opt soon forgive, « „ IF Mr, Cum.mine s&ys that he did not the election of Gov. Boies, no report, Q| tys speeches ought The Methodists Will Gather at Gold- fleJd June S3—Evangelist Ostruin and Singer mills Will Conduct the Meetings. The Algona district camp meeting will be held at Goldfiekl next month. The following notice has been issued by the committee: The division of the Sacrament Hosts known as Methodists, who reside in the valleys of the Des Moines, Boone and Iowa rivers and elsewhere, will go into camp at Goldfield, Iowa, June 22 to July 2, 1899. Their tents will be pitched beside the flowing wells and beneath the shade of ancient trees. Dr. D. M. Yetter will be in command. Dr. Henry Ostrom will be field marshal and Prof. Hillis chief musician. Rev. F. W. Ginn of Eagle Grove, quartermaster, and will furnish you a tent If you ask him. Everybody is invited to attend. T. A, POTTER STEPS UP. The Western Electric Telephone Company M alien Him Manager— " Bide" Way Becomes Secretary. Next month T. A. Potter will be promoted to the general management of the Western Electric Telephone company, and B, C. Way, a brother of Thos. A. and S. X., will succeed him as secretary. Mr. Potter is one of the most genial telephone men in the business and "Bide" Way has his share of the Way talent fordoing things. The Britt News says: The company are putting in metalic circuits on all 'their lines, which is only the beginning of the numerous improvements they expect to make this summer. They have several crews now at work in Minnesota and South Dakota, and they expect to add at least 600 miles of new line to this already great system. They have now in operation 5,000 miles of line, connecting 554 towns and cities in Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota. He rndltea u Poem to tlio Soldiers-A Welcome for tho Germaiiin Ile- uiilon. Ole Bracke is back to Germania and fresh irom the inspiration of eastern travel und incidents he writes a poem in honor of the soldiers' return. On some accounts THE UPPER DES MOINES would have expected his mind to dwell on love rather than war, but possibly the two are not so unlike as to affect the flight of his Pugasus. His poem is entitled "Greeting to the Soldiers" and was written for the reception at Gerraania, Friday: Citizens, wo are assembled To greet the soldier volunteer, And 'mong them for their return safe, rejoice. Though foremost, thanks to God ts due That they are baclt among us here. To ofllcers and boys We bring our heartfelt welcome cheers. As was our country dear In danger Good wishes from our hearts went alone Wherever you were gone While we in silence thought to start To take your place or share your dancer. If fate should chant for you the final song, We are here to greet you soldier volunteers, And for your return safe rejoice Wo bring our heartfelt welcome cheers To officers and boys. Good Bxaiuple of AJjfonu'H Ladles, Al. Adams: What a desirable con summation would be reached if the ladies of all towns like those of Algona would adopt the same humanitarian habit of taldng off their bats. What an amount of profanity by men and thoughts of hate by other women would be avoided. Of course those who are bald pr wear unbecoming wigs could be excused, although, they really ought to take a section by themselves or sit clear back by the door. In our church going days we hare often sat behind five f>v six pews fjjil pf the very beet ladies in the society gaining inspiration by faitb darkly as we could only bear the minister's voice-^-entirely losing the rnugnoUgrn pf his eye and facial expression, Let this gpocj work go on. Should our efforts fail to carry our expressions Tlien we invite you to our city, homes, and farms, To share our business, trade, or any kind of professions, Or to a visit, while you tired have staked your arms. We are here to greet you soldier volunteers, And for your return safe rejoice. We bring our heartfelt welcome cheers To ofllcers and boys. Comrades still remaining in the battle Held Also have a place within our hearts. Should our brothor-love, forgetful to our bus! ness yield, May our recollections make renewed a start We are here to greet you soldier volunteers, And for your return safe rejoice. We will bring our heartfelt welcome cheers To officers and boys. Citizens we are assembled here tonight Among the volunteers to right and left.
