Boyle has been permanently seduced by that astute fisher for republicans with sore spots, the smooth and sagacious J. W. Hlnchon, J. W. is wily, and George has a real joy in seeing himself in print. George's correspondence is what J. W. wants so long as George makes it warm for the republican candidates, and George cannot forgo the pleasure of corresponding for the sake of supporting the ticket. We regret that George admits that his native town of Whittemore was bought up bodily. That is usually not a popular admission by a local scribe, but George has some things to learn yet, among others the fact that J. W. winks and smiles every time anybody hints at his skill in playing George for a sucker. J. W. ran up against the buzz saw Jaet fall himself when he went gunning for Judge Quarton. Nowadays he is letting the rest burn their fingers and George will have a monopoly of it as long as he will loan his to J. W. As the campaign progresses we look to see George promoted to the front page. IT is already very evident that the Tenth district expects to present Congressman Dolliver as a candidate for the senate, if the opportunity occurs. Humboldt and Calhoun counties have passed resolutions to that effect, while in Hamilton county, the only one in the district that has been in question, it is understood that the candidate for representative will support Mr. Dolliver. If, as is now figured by shrewd observers, neither Gear nor Cummins has a majority from the start stranger things have happened than that the next senator should come from the Tenth. A CORRESPONDENT in the LuVerne News tries to make out that an unfair advantage was taken in the late republican county convention in the way the committee to select delegates to the etate and senatorial conventions was appointed. His claim is a mere quibble because the manner of appointing this committee is established by long custom and. also its duties. The committee was appointed aa it ahvaj-s has been and it did the work it always has done, and that the convention expected it to do. The best evidence that tho convention was not acting in an unfair spirit and that it was willing to hear from everybody was the permission tacitly given to Mr, Mayne to mane motions, raise points of order, and address the convention although he was not a delegate and was not sitting as a delegate. HAMILTON county has adopted the primary system of nominating candidates. Humboldt county voted against discontinuing it. Wherever tried it seems to be preferable to the caucus system. Even here in Kossuth county nearly every precinct has a ballot for delegates, which in contests where only one or two candidacies are in issue amounts to a ballot on candidates. It is unfortunate that the "bobtail" primary was so iuauspiciously ventured upon here. JUDGE COOK in bis Fourth of July address at Emmetsburg put the technical construction ou "the consent of the governed" that is so popular just now with the antis. How about the Mormons, the Indians, the southerners, the women, the residents of the district of Columbia, the Spaniards bought with Florida, and the French Thomas Jefferson acquired in New Orleans, and the democrats for 30 years? Each and all have been governed without their consent. The fact is, government is not a matter of consent at all, any more than family life is, and a man is born into government in the state just as he is into government in the family. In a broad sense a parent governs by the coseent of his children, but no child ever literally consented to be governed, Eren cbftflges io government like the adoption of toe American constitution »»e v*aA& without the consent of people who««bwH to the new rule. In a broad seiase " the consent of the governed" in flu* immortal declaration generalizes one of &« great political truths of all la a technical sense it i» a self* , borrowed from Rouj- fOU^i «xrf»J<«>Btr&ct theory of fhe not satisfied with the new railroad prospects and wholesale houses, but now proposes to build a street car line to connect the different depots with the business center of the city. Algona has a bunch of energetic citizens that will make her a city while some of her neighbors are waiting. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. It is now Ella Graham Salisbury at the head of the Titonka Topic columns. It is rumored that the Burlington is planning to build from Armstrong to Estherville at once. Lee Bronson, one of the Spencer Herald boys, has gone to the Emmetsburg Democrat. He is a jolly newspaper man. The Germania Gleaner takes on a new name this week. It is entitled to it, for it is a new paper. It will be the North Kossuth Record. A. L. Chesley is in Clear Lake to locate a lumber yard of the old John Paul system. They intend to give the Clear Lake company a taste of competition at home. Capt. Wm. T. Chantland of Fort Dodge is a candidate to succeed Mnjor Kirk, in the 62nd regiment, who died in Sioux City. The election will be held in camp at Clear Lake. The Rock Rapids Review says of Mrs. Jay E. Randall: The bride is a lady of refinement and has long been a central figure iu socal circles here. The groom is an editor and—you know he is the best of mankind. Report has it that the iron steamboat "Queen" has been purchased of the B. C. R, & N. officials by parties from Spencer, and will be transferred from Spirit lake to West Okoboji lake. This makes 10 steamers on Okoboji. Emmetsburg Reporter: Barnet Devine of Pomona, Cul., but formerly a resident of .Kossuth county, was' in Emmetsburg Saturday the guest of Cbas. McCormick of whom he is an old friend J.Eddie Jones came over from Algona Monday evening, and spent the night at his home in this city. He went to Livermore the morning of the Fourth to play with the 62nd regimental band, of which he is a member. DOLLIVEB AT LEXINGTON. He Arouses Great Enthusiasm 011 the Fourth In Kentucky. LEXINGTON, Ky., July 5.—Special to the Inter Ocean: The Fourth of July was celebrated here today more generally than at any time since the civil war. More fireworks were burned than ever before, and there was a more general closing of business. Congressman Champ Clark of Missouri spoke at Chautauqua grounds on "The Revival of Patriotism," and Congressman Dolliver of Iowa on "The American Nation." While the former did not advocate expansion, he praised President McKinley for fulfilling the the confidence placed in him by congress. Mr. Dolliver carried the audience by storm with an address which breathed expansion in every sentence, and, when in closing, he said the men or party that tried to prevent the manifest destiny of this nation by opposing expansion would meet overwhelming defeat, the audience went wild with enthusiasm and cheered the congressman to the echo. THE WEEK'S DEATH LIST. Georee Stewart's Remains .Laid to liestlii the Algoiia Cemetery—Mrs. Carman Dies Suddenly—Mrs. A. Hough Dead. The death of the Riverdale pioneer, Geo. Stewart was noted last week. The funeral was conducted Wednesday by Rev. Ollerensbaw. Mr. Stewart was born in Cam worth, Scotland in 1826. About 50 yearsago he immigrated from Scotland to Canada, In 1858 he moved from Algona and settled in Algona, and the next year he settled on his farm in Riverdale township where he lived ever since. He was twice married, first to JaneRichtnond in Canada, with whom he had five children. She died about 36 years ago, and a year later ho was married to Mary Clark who survives him. Ten children were the issue of the second marriage. Those of the children living are George of Armstrong, Mrs. Alex McDonald of Union township, James, Robert, William, Groyer C., Miranda, Mrs. Bud O'Rourk^ and Mrs. Mike Loss of Riverdale. HESTER N. CARMAN. Sunday morning Mrs, C. B. Clarke's mother died at 10'clock from a stroke of apoplexy suffered the evening before. Mrs. Carman was 81 years of age and in excellent health. As she was going to bed she suddenly was stricken and was sick but 12 hours. Her remains were taken to Wisconsin Monday evening for burial. She has many friends in Algona who mourn her sudden death, and who attended the brief funeral exercises at the home, conducted by Rev. Suckow. Mrs. Carman was born in Haverstraw, N. Y., May 25, 1818. When 12 years old she removed with her-parents to Sterling, Cayuga county, N. Y. Here she was married in 1844 to Mr. Henry Carman, continuing to reside in that locality until 1865, when she and her husband moved to Wisconsin. Here Mr. Carman died in 1881. During the last few years of her life she made her home with her daughter, Mrs. C. B. Clarke, where she received every attention that filial love and care can bestow. Mrs. Carman was the mother of two children, Mrs. Clarke being the only survivor. She also has two sisters at Hebron, Wie., one brother in Auburn, Y,, and another brother in Holly Springe, Mies. Mrs. Carman united with the Baptist church in early life, In Wisconsin not finding a church of her own denomination within reach she identified herself with the Methodist people. She was a member of the Algona Methodist church at the time of her death. For many years she lived aBlneere,eonH,»'tent,ohriBttan life, and it seems fitting that she should be called to her rest iuet as the church bell? were ringing fpr wpr8h.Jp. WBS. 4. HPWH.

The Senatorial Contention Begins at Emmetsbnrg 1 Tomorrow, The Situation Sized Up—No Man Can Guess What the Result May Be—Political Notes. The senatorial convention for this district meets at Emmetsburg tomorrow. It is now certain that Clay and Palo Alto counties will be for Cory with 10 votes, Dickinson and Emmet Grim with 13 votes and Kossuth for Clarke with 11 votes. It takes 21 votes to nominate, so that no two counties can alone reach a successful combination. It requires two counties and a part of a third. The papers of the district are very non-cornmital. Nothing can be gleaned from them as to the probable attitude of any of the delegations toward other than their first choice. There is nothing, however, in the situation to suggest that Mr. Clarkedoes'nt stand as good a chance of winning as anybody, and his friends who are intimately acquainted with the district think he has more than an even chance. It is entirely possible that the convention will be a long one, and that many ballots will be necessary. It promises to be a very interesting one, and undoubtedly many besides the delegates will attend. Conditions Have Changed. J. E. McMullen, who ought to know all about the election of Farley to the legislature two years ago, says in his Forrest City Press: Conditions in Kossuth have changed to such an extent during the past two years that there's not the ghost of a chance for a democrat to be elected, should there be a man with sufficient temerity to show himself. Two years ago Farley, a democrat, was elected owing to a condition of local politics that will not likely be repeated inside of a hundred years. Gardner Cowles' Candidacy. Swea City Herald: Mr. Cowles is one the ablest men in the county and ought to run well at the polls in November. Titonka Topic: Messrs. Way and Mayne withdrew in the representative contest in favor of Gardner Cowles. Of course A. D. Clarke will receive the support of the delegation from Kossuth in the senatorial race. They are both good men. Bancroft Register: Mr. Cowles' nomination means an election next November, no doubt, and if he exhibits the ability in legislative matters as he has in financial and business affairs he certainly will make a most efficient and successful legislator. Carroll Herald: Gardner Cowles, the republican nominee for the legislature in Kossuth county, is a type of the highest manbood we have in public life in Iowa. He will make a represen tative that the people of the state as well as hie constituents will be proud of. Comment on the Seimtorship. Spencer. News: With Mr. Cory's leading vote, bis personal popularity and fitness for the place, to gether with the fact that Clay county has never had the senatorship and is the leading republican county in the district, he ought in justice and we believe will receive the nomination. Emmetsburg Democrat: Candidate Grim of Esterville will come into the senatorial convention a week from tomorrow with the support of Emmet and Dickinson counties. Mr. Cory will probably have the Clay and Palo Alto delegations. Which does A. D. Clarke wish to see nominated, Mr. Cory or Mr. Grim? This seems to be the senatorial situation in a nut shell. Spirit Lake Beacon: In this quarter the nomination of Mr. Grim of Emmet is earnestly desired. The relations ol these two counties politically and otherwise have been pleasing and profitable for many years. Mr. Grim is a man of good ability and high character and would serve his district and state well and helpfully. We hope the excellent prospects of his nomination may be fulfilled. ^_ Political Notes. Humboldt county passed resolutions for Dolliver for senator. Rockwell City Advocate: The Tenth congressional district seems to be get 1 ting itself into shape to give Congess man Dolliver energetic support for United States senator if he should be in the field when the legislature meets. Rolfe Reveille: No Tenth district nominee for senator or representative should be so tangled up with instructions or promises that he cannot cut loose and vote for Dolliver for senator any time. While Mr. Dolliver is not a candidate for the office there is yet such a thing as the office seeking the man. Iowa City Republican: The point is being rapidly approached in the sena torial contest between John Henry Gear and A. B. Cummins where the proper thing for the Cummins men to do is to move to make it unanimous. The confidence of the people of Iowa in the proverb, old men for council, remains unshaken. About the County Tlclcot. The Bancroft Register says that A. J. Berryman will be a candidate for the republican nomination for treasurer. Bancroft Register: Coroner Morse, it is hinted, would like to receive a re nomination and reelection to his im portant office. The fees during his past term have wore than paid official expenses and the price of the stamps on his bond. We shall express no choice until ail the candidates for the office have announced themselves, The Lu Verne News speaks highly of IT. H. Single for county superintendent, Jt says: He is a graduate of Cornell college and has been continuously engaged in teaching since 1882, with tho exception of four years when he was attending college, lie bus been principal in graded, schools for ten years and Hold a teacher's life diploma. Mr. Slagle has been a resident of Kossuth for the past twenty-nine years. THE ADJOtJBNED SESSION, Work Done by the County Hoard at the Special Meeting Lust Week.

The Courier Never Mentioned It, Humboldt Republican: THE UPPER DES MOINES says that a farmer drove in that city the other day with two wagons. On each wagon was 3,000 pounds of wool. He received 17 cents a pound for it "and went home with more than a $1,000 to his credit. This is one of the differences to which the agitators seldom direct attention. The Fenton bank is open and Cashier Harris is on the ground. HOW IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN Bnt It Wasn't, and That is Why This Letter is Called Forth. Writer of the Report of the Whitte- morc Cancns Has a Word to Say by Way of Reply. WHITTEMORE, Iowa, July 10.—To the Editor: Having the misfortune to be the person who, at the request of the some what overburdened editor pro tern, of the Champion, wrote the brief notes of the proceedings of the republican caucus on the 23rd, which were so graphically and courteously designated by Mr. Boyle as "flat," "insipid," "sycophantic," "palavery," "slop and swill," etc., in his characteristic effusion in the Courier of the 7th inst., 1 wish to say, by your courtesy, that the said "article" was purposely confined to a brief note of the salient facts of the caucus as everyone there present saw them; and also that it was my intention to strictly avoid the use of any expression calculated to stir up or to keep alive any transient feelings of irritation or ill'will among the members of the party, as a result of our somewhat sharp and lively campaign for the delegation to the county convention. And I am proud that my conduct in this matter, and in politics generally, should be sharply differentiated from that of Mr. Boyle in the past, present, and probable future. Vide his present outrageous diatribes against republican nominees, and the cunning and plausible dumagoguery by which bo endeavors to stir up local jealousies and ill-will, with the very evident purpose of bamboozling enough sort-headed republicans into voting with the opposition to elect their ticket, including our state representative. But that siren song is losing its witchery, George, and no Dolliver man will be sucker enough this year to bite at such a bare hook. As to the "flatness" and "insipidity" of my sstid "article," had I possessed that happy immunity from all scruples as to common courtesy, decency and veracity which so happily characterize Mr. Boyle's periodical outbursts in the Courier, of which I sincerely hope that paper is proud, and which makes them such a delightful pabulum for a certain grade of mental and moral appetite; I repeat, that had no such restraining scruples interfered, I might have made my said notes much more "spicy," as for instance something in this wise: THE OLD HE BUSTER BUSTED. 0. E. li'S. LITTLE SCHEME SLIVEJiED ALL TO EVERLASTING FLINBEHS. That veteran bolter and fire-in-the- rear-man, George E. Boyle, who still continues to infest this small wing of the republican party with his pretended adherence and membership, getting desprit tired of the "innocuous desuetude" to which our boys have relegated him for some time back, hatched up a little scheme to capture our caucus, and of course get put upon the delegation, and once more have the chance to pose at our conventions as the great mogul of Whittemore republicanism. And he forthwith started out on a still hunt for this game, and by daubing lots of plausible varnish over his past political misdeeds, and by many apparently honest promises for the future, got quite a bunch of unsuspicious, good hearted boys to believe that his new birth into political grace WHS the gen uine thing, and got their promise of affiliation and support. But some of the boys happened to crass the slimy trail and followed it up and got on to his little game just in time, and then there was a rustling of the dry bones on both sides for a day or two—not at all by Cowles or Clarke, but home workers—and the farmers left their corn and turned out to redeem their town and party from the disgrace of such political leadership, and on a square ballot vote the count stood 66 to 38 against G. E. B's. little scheme; and more than half the 38 were heartily sick of their vote before they cast it, and only voted so to redeem their promise. AndG. E. B. was " re-relegated to innocuous desuetude," so far as the G. O. P. is concerned, and it is devoutly to be prayed that the demo- pops will gather him in a,nd relieve us of the high honor and credit of his alleged membership, 'Rah for Cowles and a straight republican ticket! Now I could have just as easily made rny notes in the above form, and many fellows would have thought it spicier; but it might have seemed unkind and discourteous to an old neighbor and brother in the republican ranks; and it would possibly bo difficult to exactly verify all the asserted facts as being exactly true precisely as stated, and so I preferred the "insipid" way. Is it. or is it not, a trifle babyish to squeal about " packed caucuses" when they don't stay packed your way? And did you pack it too wet, or too dry, George? Was feeling a little hurt about that "slop and swill" business until it was explained to me that it was an ejaculation merely, which got written in by mistake; just an eructation of stale, left-over caucus beer, laid down carelessly on a sub-stratum of Old Bourbon, and it worked. WHITTEMORE. The Fourth at Livermore. Gazette: Too much cannot be said of the splendid music furnished by the Algonaband. The band was a draw ing card. And while the attention of the people was too much divided up—as is nartural on the Fourth—to always applaud the music, yet they appreciated it. That was one of the main features that brought them to Livermore. At the grounds close attention was paid to the speech of Hon. Judge Quarton of Algona, and the only complaint we have heard about it was that it was u too short," which we would consider a very high compliment. C. A. Spratt In Trouble. C. A. Spratt, the Webster City horse buyer often seen in Algona, was trying to sell a horse a week ago when William Busby interfered. The Journal says: The discussion soon became so hot that they resorted to fists and were settling the case when Marshal Ostrander and Deputy Cavana happened on the scene. When the marshal began ,o separate them a man by the name Of Milburn, who resides near Stratford, tried to pull him away, stating that he would not allow a third party to Inter- 'ere. The marshal mads several attempts at trying to show MilburO his authority, but nothing would satisfy but a short consultation with Mayor Austin. Spratt and Busby were also taken before the mayor and after paying a fine of $5 and costs they were released. HAPPILY MAEBIED. Frank Dau and Miss Mary Johnson Join Hands and Hearts- At Home In Burt. At 6 o'clock this evening, at the home of the bride's parents, will occur the marriage of Frank Dau of Burt to Miss Mary Johnson. Only relatives and near friends will be "present to witness the ceremony, which will be performed under a pretty arch in the parlor by Rev. Dr. Day. The bride will be beautifully attired in white* silk. with lace and pearl trimmings and bride's roses; the groom in conven-- tional black. Miss Manda Dau, sister of the groom, will play the wedding march and little Mary and Alice Cosgrove, nieces of the bride, will act as flower girls, carryin'g dainty baskets of white and blush roses. The parlors are beautifully decorated with palms, ferns and potted plants, while the dining room is made pretty with maiden hair ferns and cut flowers. At the close of the ceremony after the congratulations the guests will repair to the dining room, where supper will be served, after which the happy couple will take the evening train to Burt, where they begin housekeeping at once in the home already prepared by the groom. Among those who will be' present are Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Blossom and W. S. Burns of Burt, Mr. and Mrs. F. Thompson of Fenton, Mr. and Mrs. Cnsgrove of Wesley, and Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Pai-rott of Monticello. The bride is a most charming lady well known in Algona to all patrons of Goeders' store,where she has been employed many years. The groom is one of the best known young business men of Burt, whose success is already assured. Only good wishes will attend both in their new venture, wishes for much happiness and prosperity. The Midland Monthly Falls. The Midland Monthly is dead. The men who bought it from Conaway & Shaw and moved it to St. Louis last January found it was a bigger undertaking than they expected, and declined to put up the thousands upon thousands of dollars which must be sunk to establish a foundation for a maga.zine. Mr. Johnson Brigham, who founded the magazine in Des Moines in 1894, sacrificed a fortune in trying to establish it and finally gave it "up. It has been stated by persons well informed that it requires at least $500,000 capital to start a first class literary magazine, and the ambitious publisher must be prepared to see all that amount go entirely out of sight before he begins to reap profits.
