Henderson will become speaker of the next house. Congressman Hopkins of Illinois has withdrawn in his favor, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Ohio have declared for him, some of the eastern states are already falling in line, and the prospect is that more will follow suit. Col. Henderson will win on his merits, and not because he comes from any particular section. GEO. E. BOYLE, who is again doing what he can to stir up trouble among the republicans of the county, says in the Courier: "Being in a reminiscent mood and taking a retrospective view of past events, we re member that Gardner Cowles was a mem her of the congressional delegation from Kossuth county in 1888 under instructions to use all honorable means to secure the nomination of A. J. Holmes of Boone. Af ter arriving at Webster City Cowles bolted and refused to obey instructions, would not vote for Holmes because he said if Holmes was congressman he might name A. A. Brunson postmaster at Algona, and thai would not suit Cowles, who is a law unto himself." This statement is wholly withoul foundation. Mr. Cowles voted for Major Holmes on every ballot that was cast in the convention of 3888, in accordance with his instructions. Thomas has had the matter under con elderation for several days and ha finally turned Moaer down, which was eminently proper, and A. K. Shoup wil receive the appointment instead Moaer was rejected on the score of be ing a non-resident, but he will not es cape the odium which attaches to hi tricky Attempt to secure that to which he wa« not entitled, and which prove him to be an unfit candidate for the honors. _ SKHJX CITY has a "Jack the hup ger," but he will not endure for long Many prominent ladies of that city have formed a club for self protection and each one has a stiletto up he sleeve. We are watching results, and the next time he attempts to hugge we shall expect the Journal to tell u of a Jack that came to his death "from some cause unknown to the jury." THE card announcing Mr. Mayne'i candidacy for representative reachoc this paper last week barely in time fo insertion and too late to admit of edi torial mention. His record during thi one term that he was in the house i clean and above reproach, and that be ing the fact this paper finds pleasure in saying so. He would ably represen this county again, and should he be thi choice of the convention he will have no more hearty support thnn will be given him by THE UPPER DES MOINES The Senatorial Convention. The committee which met at' Em raetsburg last Friday decided to hold the senatorial convention for this dis trictat that place on July 13. This conclusion was reached after an ex tended session, during which the sit uation was fully discussed and the In terestsof the various counties thorough ly considered. Kossuth will presen the name of A. D. Clarke; Emmet has i candidate in the person of C. W. Grim while Clay county is undecided, having two candidates in the field at the pres ent time, Dr. McAllister and J. W Cory, though it is suggested there wil be but one after that county selects its delegates to the convention. Palo Alto and Dickinson have no candidates so far as is known, and are not likely to have, concessions having been made in both these counties on representative matters which makes it practically set tied that neither will have an aspiran for senatorial honors. Kossuth wil make an honest effort to win In that convention. SENATOR FUNK argues at some length in the last issue of the Beacon in favor of Mr. Cummins as the logical candidate for United States senator, and one is bound to admit that he gives good reasons for the faith that is in him. Closing a long article he says, and with much truth: "Stripped of all misplaced sentiment and the buncombe of small politics the people must reach a decision upon these merits: If they want to turn over the United States senatorship as a personal reward to a popular man disqualified for public service by age and infirmity Gear is the man. If they regard this office as a public agency to be administered for the public good by a man capable of the largest measure of usefulness to the state and nation, Cummins and not Gear is the man to choose." IT tranapiree that Chris. Moser, who secured first place in the examination over in the Eleventh district as a candidate for the cadetship to Anapolie, passed a similar examination at Freeport, 111., last month, and stood so well that he was selected as alternate. Now be comes to Jowa fresh from that con- te»t, and of course ie able to pass an examination which gave him a high standing and first place. The Beacon Says tbie trick has been played once be* fore in that district and condemns the Vbole proceeding as unfair and unjust to local contestants. Congressman The County Convention. As intimated last week it has been decided to hold the county convention on the 30th of June for the purpose o nominating a candidate for representative in the legislature from thiscounty and also to select delegates to both the state and senatorial conventions. This will give four weeks' notice, and it ought to be time enough for every republican voter to make up his mind whom he will support. The recommendation is made that the caucuses be held on the 23d, a week before the convention, and that they all be held on the same date. This is by no means a mandate on the part of the county committee, but is merely a suggestior which is in accordance with previous methods in the county, and is in the interest of clean politics. By holding the primaries all on one date each candidate has an equal show with his competitor, and no one can justly claim that an undue ad vantage has been taken by holding any particular caucus ahead of another. In the interest of harmony and good politics this paper hopes to see this plan pursued. The convention will have 118 dele gates, which is a slight falling oft from last year's convention, which had 124. It will require 60 votes to give a majority, and this paper has sufficient confidence in the republicans of Kossuth county to believe they will give 60 or more votes to the best man. GAEDNEE OOWLES 1 OANDIDAOY. Titonka Topic: Mr. Cowles is an Algona resident well known throughout the county. He is well fitted for the position, and if he is elected would make an excellent representative. Wesley News: Mr. Cowles is second in the field to make a public announcement. Other candidates will probably be out, but at present Stitz Way and Gardner Cowles are drawing all the attention in the political field. Burt Monitor: Mr. Cowles will make an active campaign, and like the other candidates, is in it to win. He is a strong candidate. AJgona is going to lay great claim to the office, believing a chance for a state normal school is again in sight. Bancroft Register: Mr. Cowles will re ceive the entire vote of Algona in the convention, and with such active workers as A. D. Clarke, Harvey Ingham and others from the county seat canvassing in his behalf will no doubt develop a flattering strength in the convention. ,,^ Whittemore Champion: Mr. Cowles is a shrewd business man, and would undoubtedly make as good a representative as could be selected. He has many friends over the Bounty who will give him a hearty support. He was a warm participant in the last fight for a state normal school at Algona, and it s because of the resurrection of this fight ;hat bis friends have urged him to make the race. We would like te see a state normal at Algona, as it would be a benefit to the entire county, and If Mr, Cowles' election will insure it we are in favor of his candidacy. A representative should be a 'representative" in every sense of the work, and should be a mau who will see bat hie county receives its share of good hings. Swea City Herald; Mr. Cowlee is one of ihe brefoy men pf J,he opunty whose resU deace dates back to 1883, when be begun his principal of the Algouu schools. 3e bj* never been § ptwididate f or Rny oj$S$SOja4?80 WP fcftOW, W haj ' prominent in republican matters and Shown ability to cope with every turn of affairs HI* business affairs have been successful and his hand and means have contributed to every public improvement in Algona dur Ing the past few years. His Algona friends think he is peculiarly fitted to work for thi establishment of a normal school, and jus the man to represent Kossuth County dur Ing the coming session of the legislature and we believe a large number of the re publicans of the county will concur in tha opinion. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Webster City Freeman: Rev. W. H Dorward, formerly of this city, now o Algona, spent Sunday here, and de parted for Sao City this morning t visit a brother. Forest City is to have Dr. Dowle, th divine healer of Zlon's tabernacle, Chi cago. The results of his work will b watched with interest. He Is said to have performed some miraculous cures The Beacon says: Hook-and-llne fish Ing was never better around our lakes always noted as a fishing ground, that during the past two weeks. With du< care the fish supply will increase in stead of diminish. Editor MoMullen protests against the compulsory putting out of the gasolin< lights in Forest City. Better fire th< whole outfit and put in electric light and have done with it, Bro. Me. Al the experimenting with lights costs ai much in the end as does a good system of electric lighting. Spirit Lake Beacon: The Milwaukei company has granted the request fo. the holding of the Spencer train ever; evening during Chautauqua until afte'i the evening meeting. This Is exceed ingly Important to people along th line and to the Chautauqua itself. Th evening programs this year are espec ially fine. It is reported that two men tried to work an old game on one of theDenison saloonkeepers u few days ago. The men engaged in a little fight with th Intention that while the bartender wa putting one man out the other woulc tup the till. The plan worked all righ except that the bartender put both men out at the sume time. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES.

The Correspondent for "Forest and Stream" Has Pleasant Things to Say of the Town and the State Sliootlnti Tournament. Paul R. Litzke, special correspondent 'or Forest and Stream, was in attend ance upon the state shooting tourna ment here last week, and his report to nis paper will be found of interest to the general reader. He says: Notwithstanding that there were no nduoements in the way of substantiii sums of added money, and the fact^tlmt ;he geographical location of Algona is :iardly such as would insure a large at- lendance of shooters, the twerity-seconc innual tournament of the Iowa State Sportsman's assooiation, given undoi the auspices of the. Algona Gun club, ivas quite a success. The number ol jrinoipalb engaged in the different svents were up to the standard of those 'ound at the more pretentious shoots, where good added moneys are potent inducements. On the first day more .ban forty shooters participated, and on tbe second day nearly as many, while on the final day there was no perceptible falling off of the entries, and the shoot went along In its us smooth manner. Much of this is due no doubt to personal popularity of Uncle John G. Smith, the able and ener- jetlo ex-chief executive of the associa- ,ion, who is the only one of the charter members still affiliating with the or- anization. Mr. Smith has always had he best interest of the assooiation at leart, and has ever labored zealously n the cause of the protection of fish and game in the state of Iowa. That bus carefully gone into the subject s shown by his able address to the ai- oeiation. In this he points out the re- ornas necessary to the best interests of he sportsmen of Iowa. The manner in which this tournament wus conducted is worthy of much avorable comment, and there are few hoots that have been so utterly devoid f friction and contentions. Everybody onneoted with, the shoot In any oapao- ty, whatever, w$8 thoroughly capable nd competent, so that during the en- Ire tournament there vvae never an error in the scoring. Mr. C. T. Chubb, who presided in the cashier's office, was thorougly conversant with all the details of this department, and the events were scarcely disposed of when he was prepared to hand all the con testants whatever was due them. The arrangement of the grounds was also very complete. There were tw< sets of bluerock expert traps, arrangec on the Sergeant system. These were set to throw a very fast low bird, so as to make the breaking of straights very difficult. Add to this a very deceptive background of trees, with new foliage and it will be readily understood whi the averages were no higher. A shet had also been erected for the protection of the shooters against the weather and here lunch and light refreshment! were served. The ground on which the tournament was conducted was o ample scope to permit the shooting o live birds and targets also, but no pigeons were shot when the targe traps were run. Uncle John Smith, though the mos aged shooter who participated, showec the younger ones that he was by no means out of their class, as he made one of the few straights on targets. Lenander, one of those who ,tled for the handicap cup, broke 25 targets straight in this event, but was unable to maintain this fast pace, and couh not reach this total on bin handicap of 6. Algona is only a small place, but i gave the visitors a rattling good shoot and nil the shooters went away favor ably Impressed with the little city. PEB80NAL MOVEMENTS.
