JOHN G. SMITH'S ADDRESS. Gentlemen of the State Association: At the twenty-second annual meeting f the state association, now being held t Algona, in behalf of our citizens I extend to you a hearty welcome, and am glad to know that so much interest s taken in our work. In my remarks o the association last October at our meeting in the city of Des Moines I :alled up the matter of the dam in the •iver at Bonaparte, Iowa, and I hope he association at the present meeting ill take some steps to present the matter of the removal of the dam to he next general assembly. Every lov- ir of fish and game in the state knows hat that obstruction should be removed from the river, so that the fish ,ould pass up and supply the streams of he Des Moines valley with all the fish needed. I hope every lover of fish and fame will take pains to go to the polls t November and vote for men that will do justice to the people of the Des oines valley. We have the power fentlemeu, let us use it. Ten to twenty housand votes will count, and many a man will be left at home who is not willing to attend to the wants of the teople of the state. Good men can bo ound in every legislative district. Make it your business to see that they ire elected. See that those one-horse tatesmen who think there is nothing o do in the next general assembly but o vote for a U. S. senator are left at home. We want business men in our egislature, men who will look after the nterests of our state. Our fish commission should be placed n an equal footing with the fish commissions of other states. As it is at the present time it practically amounts to lothing. Our lakes and streams are iot stocked with fish, and the Iowa tate fish hatchery is a disgrace to the tate, The fish hatchery should be lo- :ated in some place where the ponds ,an be kept open in the winter season, ome place where there is some shelter rom the cold north winds and where jlenty of running water can be had at ill times. A state fish hatchery should not be a plaything to look at; it should ie. a place to breed fish to stock the akes and streams of the state. Iowa should have fifty times as many fish as she has at the present time. A law should be passed in the stale to protect the Chinese, the Mongolian and the English pheasants for the next five years. There is no reason why our state should not be well stocked with floe game. Other states have met with good success in this work and there is no reason why Iowa should be behind in the work. The last national house of representatives passed Mr. Lacey's bill in regard to stocking the states with the different kinds of game birds, but selfishness in the senate killed the bill and one of the best bills was lost that WHS ever presented to congress. Selfishness did the work. Many members of the U. S. senate could be well spared and it would be a great benefit to the nation if they were left tit home. They seem l.o think that the U. S. senate was created for them. They forget that they are servants of tho people. Our game and fish laws are good and fairly well enforced, and I think there is a gonernl disposition in tho state to comply with the laws. It is our duty to future generations to see that the fish and game are protected. Thirty years ago Iowa was well stocked with fish and game. Let it not be said that one generation destroyed it all. Many of our sister states have passed laws to impose a "license tax" upon citizens of other states who shoot and fish within their borders. I hope the state of Iowa will never have any such law in her code. I believe that kind of a law would bo unconstitutional, as the constitution of the United States guarantees equal rights to all the people of of tho United States. Such laws breed up a olnss of " pot hunters," and are disgusting to sportsmen who enjoy being out with tho rod and gun. When it comes to tho point that my brother sportsman who lives just across an imaginary line cannot shoot a day with me without paying $25, I want to quit shooting in tho state. More attention is being paid to the taking care of our forests than over be- 'ore. The people of the United States jogin to realize that their timber will not last forever. Minnesota has taken steps to have some 2500 square miles set apart for a sort of a national park. Plie laud they prouose to sot apart is one of the grandest game countries in the world. There are a large number of splendid lakes full of fine fish, and )no of the greatest breeding grounds 'or water fowl in the United States. Let us hope that congress will not bo jackward in doing their part of the work. If we want to make a barren, desolate country of our fair land we cannot do so any faster than to destroy ill our timber and kill all our game ind fish. The state of New York is dive to the fact that something must je done to preserve her timber, If ,hey do not do something many of their arm lands will soon be of no value. Too much timber cannot bo planted, and it is a duty we owe to future generations to increase rather than decrease our forests. I hope the people of Iowa will soon 30 alive to the fact that bur small birds ire fast being destroyed, and work together to protect our song and plume )irds. Thousands of them are 1 destroyed every year, and unless some- ,hing be done the song and plumed airds will be a thingof tho past. Many of our best men and women will allow Lheir boys to go into the woods and kill ihe beautiful song birds just for the lake of killing something. The poor, nnocent birds are left on the ground, naimed and wounded, to suffer and die. ["ho rod birds of the south will soon be leard no more. Tho wings of thebeau- iful herron and the silver wing gull tvill only be found on ladies' hats or in ome millinery store. There has been great awakening in the matter in many of our eastern states. Ladies can ilways find fine flowers to adorn their mts and thus save our song and plumed birds. We have good laws for he protection of our birds and I hope every member of our association will do hie part toward enforcing- them. ANOTHER SWAMP LAW SUIT. DEATH OF G, M. JOHNSON, Result of a Runaway Last Satni'day, South of Britt. Geo. E. Clurlce Takes Sllll Further Slepti to Protect tho Iloldorw of Swiimp Titles. Geo. E. Clarke has secured a tempo- •ary injunction restraining Geo. D, Waterman from again issuing deeds to any of the Callanan lands in Kossuth, and also restraining the county recorder rom putting such deeds on record if any should be issued. This is for the n-otection of those who got sheriff's certificates to the Waterman clouds as a result of his suit|begun two years ago. All the Callanan or Waterman clouds mve been sold, but there is nothing to >revent them from again issuing quit ,laims and thereby muddling up the Itles again, and this injunction is to prevent a repetition of this form of mulct. He will ask the court at the Doming term to make the injunction permanent. This suit is without ex- >ense to any of the land owners. WE will make special prices on all of iur capes to close. GEO. L.

Johnson, the Algona inaple- 'ment man, was run over by a heavy load of machinery south of Britt Saturday morning. He has been opening 1 a warehouse at the new town of Kanawha and was hauling his second car load of machinery from Britt. He was driving a team that starts suddenly and on the jump, and had stopped to water them. How he tried to get back on the load is not exactly known, probably from the tongue. The team jumped .and he was thrown. The front and back wheel both passed over his chest, breaking three ribs and causing dangerous internal hemorrhage. He was taken to a farm house near by and Dr. Cole of Britt summoned at once. Mrs. Johnson was at Kanawha, having gone Thursday. It was their intention to make their home in the new town temporarily, leaving their son in charge of tho Algona business. She was also summoned. Monday A. M. Johnson went over, and Monday night the daughters were summoned by a telegram announcing that their father was at death's door. Last night at 6 o'clock a telegram announced that Mr. Johnson was no bettor and A, M. Johnson went east at once. It is not thought that Mr. Johnson can live. This morning a telephone message announced his death last night. The remains will be in Algona on the morning freight. The sympathy of the community goes out to the stricken family.

The supreme court last week affirmed the Stephenson case, and Mrs. Stephenson gets $2,000 from the Bankers' Life of Des Moines. This is the case, that arose out of the death of Algona's former hardware man, who was found, dead in the Dr. Read barn, the morning he got borne from the asylum. He hiul a revolver by his side that he had taUi-ii at Jus. Stacey's, and no one doubis that he shot himself. Still the insurance company could not prove that be, did to the jury, and on that the insurance money hangs. The policy provides that in case of suicide within two years all claim to insurance is forfeited. The Iowa courts hold this provision valid. Stephenson died within tho two year limit. Judge Thomas submitted the question to the jury flatly whether the company had proved suicide and it returned a verdict in the negative. The supreme court upholds this verdict. E. V. Swotting was Mrs. Stephenson's attorney. ICxourslQU Tickets to I, O, O.
