ID view of the canvass that has quietly and good naturedly been made of the the county, the past two weeks, it is eeemiogly needless to call upon repub. lieatw to attend the caucuses thin week. Still many will not go who ought to. The caucus ie where the actual work of political organization is done, and it the place where the people—every citizen—exert their influence upon gov ernmeot, Every public policy can be shaped at the caucus. The great features of our national politics are made and unmade in primary elections, Every good citizen should make it his duty to attend the caucus and quietly deposit hie ballot. It bag taken George an e<reo ten year* to get to this point. If at the end of ten more he can recall some of the work done for the rest vt the ticket *e*re willing to hear the famous 1889 6ght rehearsed that long.

Payne, who has spent several winters io the public service iu Washington, (says that a civil service system is absolutely necessary to protect the government employes tbem- eelve«, although nearly all applicants areoppowd to it. In an editorial in the Nevada Representative be says: service is good for those "who get on the pay roll* today aad are turned out of their Job* tomorrow or uext week is a mistaken one, And if tbe tenure of the public service depends oo political influence ratter than upon personal merit the effect Is par- ticulary demoralizing upon the individual At best the pay in government clerkships is small to proportion to the cost of liviujr and those most favored can rarely show that tbey have profited from prolonged public employment; while the saddest wrecks to be seen in Washington or elsewhere are those who ha ye held federal clerkships and lost tb«ot and have nothing elm to which, they know bow turn their attention. It is no benefit to a political party to take its bright you;j* M<M and wreck them after this fashion ; and it \» unquestionably through appointments upon merit and secure tenures that the government can be and i» assured of the best and most efficient service.

AN OLD 8ETTLEB ON ALGOHA. It FIJI* HI* H*art With Joy to ge« "The Old To*rn" Orovr-Ilow * T<nn-n CUB Boom Without Saloon*. The following letter is addressed to Ills old friends in Kossatb, by Harry E. Phillips, who grew op near Algona. As I «peoa a few hours for U»e first t3a»e In eigrht years in Algona my birth place and wbere I spent tfce first 33 years of HIT life, I find many things of interest to me in this grand old prohibition town. For as I take a Wrdseye view (so to speak) of the little city, I cannot help but congratulate mv many friends and loyal citizens for the pride they hare taken in the " Dear Old Town" for its advancement, and only wonder that such a vast improvement could take place in so short a time (in a prohibition town.) The ireneral supposition is that a town with no saloons is poor stuff. But tat friends "Alpona" tells the whole storv If ' such people were to see your town their eye* would be opened to the motto, " Prohibition is in the Right," and as 1 walk around the little city and find so manv toa^oiflcient new dwellings brick and stone blocks and public buildings all of which are ahead of the average town of 4,000 and under, it seads a thrill of jov to mv heart and I only regret that 1 am not among vou once more to stay. For I sincerely believe that it is destined to be the metropolis of northern Iowa in a few more years. We cannot help but say that the old town is doing its share of the business with anv town of the state. I speak from what I nave seen. For in my travels the past six years. I find but few towns of this population as busy all the day and with as bright I a future. For with the signs of improvement this season I have no reason to doubt that it will reach the 5.0W mark in the next two years. And now as I close the day of my visit and say the many goodbyes I leave with the thought of one of ~th» happiest days spent in m,v life. And as the limited train on the old Millwakee system steamed out of the little station and carries me eastward in view of my birth place on the farm and I note the manv changes in that locality. Where I, a barefoot youth of ten summers, herded cattle for our neteb bors. And now the same prairie is mostly under cultivation. And while there is a vast chance for improvement I am DOW satisfied that none will improve more rapidly or with more determination than that in the vicinity of m.v native town. And now my dear friends and readers as I close my few remarks expressed in mv simple way I trust you accept my best wishes and while rn.y home U not there at the present same. The Peachblow is still blowing, bat not entirely in bloom, the big ditch running banks full, and it looks like rain. Hurrah for us, wet or drj3 Good for Father The Lu Verne News. tells the following to the credit of the able Cathblic priest at St. Joe: The Catholic priest at St. Joe created quit* a sensation last Sunday morning by going into the drinking den of the St. Joe club and finding Uiat there was whiskey being poured into the soda water being sold there, he swept the glasses from the bar onto the floor and threw a bottle of whiskey against the side of the building, and put an end to the carousal started.

It io not local nor trumped up. It is the expression of a friendly feeling which prevades the republicans j of the state toward a young man who has represented them with great ability for ten yearn In congress. Some of the papers supporting other candidates are trying to force him to declare whether he will be a candidate or not Geo. D. Perkins answers thorn in an editorial in the Sioux City Journa very pally, addressing himself to the Cedar Rapids Republican.

The Swea City Vliliau Cau«bt lu MtuueapollH-A Mont Outrageou* AUaJr. The Minneapolis Tribune of June 13 tells the- following story of the notorious Dr. Hel)iri,once of Swea City, and once candidate for coroner in Kossuth: A story, the equal of which has seldom been Heard, was told to the police last evening by a girl 10 years old. Edgar H. Hellin.a physician was taken in to custody, as a sequel, and is now held on a charge, which if proved will merit many years of imprisonment. Dr. Ucllio formerly had offices at 425 Washington avenue south. He moved to the block at Fourth street and Nicollet avenue some time ago. There it is alleged the crime was committed^ and in his bedroom the physician was taken into custody. The police secured their first intimation of the case in a peculiar manner Shortly Jiftur 6 o'clock last evening Detective Thomas Murphy was standing at Fourth streetand Nicollet avenue. Someone threw a quanity of water on the Fourth street pavement, and the detective thought it time to investigate. Calling Officer A.A. Bacon the two entered Heflin's office on tho fourth floor. A small girl ran to them when they entered tho reception 'room. In tho bedroom two rooms beyond they found the physician. He was partly disrobed, and as ho saw the officer he jumped into hod. The policeman watched the doctor while Murphy questioned tho girl. Ho had no idea what had occurod, and bit by bit ho secured the child's story It was but partially told when the detective had hoard enough to convince him that aiii outrage hud been committed. Going into the bedroom he addressed himself to the man under the bed clothes. "Gel on your clothes and come with mo," he said to Hellin. "What's the matter," asked the officor. "Nothing much, only from this girl's story this follow has committed a ter- rlahlo crime," "She's a liar," replied tho physician. Never mind, but come with me and wo shall see," and then Hoflin accompanied tho officers to tho station without more ado. He was locked up and charged as accused by tho child. Olive- Morse is tho victim, us alleged, of tho physician.
