THE Des Moines papers are after Chairman Hancock with a sharp stick. He has been prodding Des Moines a little about hurrying up the auditorium. Des Moines don't like to be hurried and has never really liked the idea that it was forced into building an auditorium. Des Moines is all right, and it is building an auditorium the state will be proud of. Chairman Hancock-Is also all right. A GREAT many guesses about the Gear and Cummins strength are being made. The fact seems to be that neither has much to go on, as a large number of the prospective legislators are wholly uncommitted. to because they are only 1,000 miles away Instead of 8,000. Will the Democrat please state exactly how mftny people have to be together before its theory of the consent of the governed applies? Will it also state exactly how many miles people must live f torn us in order to be en titled to take ad vantage of it? ^ • IT is refreshing in these days to see a ma» like Thos. D. Healy presented for the state senate, and to see two counties unite on him without higgling and haggling. Mr. Healy is a force for good government in Iowa, and his hearty renominaMon is an encouragement to all believers in our popular selection of public officials. THE success of E. P. Barringer in winning the Clay-Palo Alto representative nomination will gratify a wide circle of republicans in northern Iowa. Mr. Barringer is a genial man to meet, a working republican, and, if the Des Moines Capital will not misconstrue the statement, an ardent friend of Congressman Dolliver. THE UPPER DBS MoiNES congratulates Mr. Barringer, and wishes him a big majority at the polls. THE Spirit Lake Chautauqua comes out oyer 81,000 ahead. From this year this popular entertainment at the lakes will gain in financial prestige. In a very short time it will be the summer entertainment feature of the state. Hard work gets its reward. THE Webster county republicans endorsed John T. Drug for Tenth district committeeman, There are many reasons why Mr. Drug should be given a second term. AL. ADAMS has edited the Humboldt Independent 25 years. In one month Al, says it will be an even quarter of a century since he " walked into the Independent office, hung up his coat, loosened his paper collar, pulled out an old, battered copper news rule that he had hammered out of a piece of old copper boxing that he had picked up while tramping railroad ties out of Cairo, IH., called for the only stick in the shop, and from that day to this has successfully defied creditors, old settlers, men of war, or any other man to get him off from the tripod of the Humboldt County .Independent." May Al. see another 25 years in the same place, an ornament to his profession and the life of the Upper Des Moines Editorial association. THE state convention comes at Des Moines next Wednesday. The new auditorium will be ready. The only contest is on supreme judge. The talk in the lobbies will ail be about the United States senatorship. t WHEN President McKinley was elected there was not the slightest reason to suspect that any cabinet officer would be called upon for anything but routine duties. Several elderly gentlemen were therefore honored, among them John Sherman and Alger. Sherman had sense enough to INGERSOLI, outlived his mission in life. That is the greatest affliction of old age. Emerson says the greatest success is that which comes 30 years after. IngersolPs popularity was immediate, his work soon done. It is safe to predict that with all his bonhommie his declining years were disconsolate. He did not lay strong hold on the eternal verities. His optimism was a candy toy, his sentiment the fitting accompaniment of a summer picnic. He demolished some shams, ridiculed some cant, laughed out some time-honored superstitutions. But It was a little job soon over, and he leaves a little record soon forgotten. Now that the great increase in the production of gold seems to make hi- metallism unnecessary the Cedar Rapids Republican mutilates the corpse by saying it is absurd. The Republican's attention is again called to the fact that the monetary conference of 1867 was the only one that ever repudiated bimetallism, and that every succedlng conference deplored the fact that silver coinage was dropped from 1869 to 1878. Substantially all the students of the money question have been and are now bimetaliists. They all admit, however, that the wonderful output of gold has temporarily if not permanently postponed any further attempt to restore silver coinage. ELIHU ROOT, a New York lawyer of great ability, is the new secretary of war. It is rumored that his first action will be to fully recognize Gen. Miles In army affairs. ftt Storm Lake. The matter was before the railway commissioners but was adjusted without a hearing. Clear Lake Mirror: Dr. M< E. Colby and her daughter, Mrs. Van Clse, left Tuesday night for the Hot Springs of South Dakota, where they will remain at least two weeks. Dr. Colby is pretty well "fun down" and hopes to find virtue in the medicinal waters of the springs. The sportsmen of the state are looking forward with a good deal of Interest to the field trial for dogs which comes off In Palo Alto county, with Emmetsburg as its headquarters, August 31, and September 1 and 2. The Reporter says: The enterles to this event close July 31, but already there is a large list of dogs entered and an Interesting meeting is expected. THE MONTH'S MAgAZINES. The fiction number of Soribner's magazine has come to be an annual eVentof Importance to writers aud readers of short stories. In It, during the past 10 years, have appeared the most notable short stories of writers established in reputation, ana writers whose reputations began with their appearance in this issue. The present fiction number (August) is remarkable for its color printing, Its brilliant pictures by young artists, and the nigh excellence of the short stories. •*• -f- -t- Havlng in previous numbers of the Atlantic described the birds and animals of the great Yosemite National Park, John Mulr In the August Atlantic pictures the physical wonders and beauties of that famous region. The primeval forests, the world famous canons, lakes, and streams, the wonderful polished pavements, the monumental boulders, and the marked effects of glacial action with which the park abounds are all described in vivid and glowing language.

He has worked in this vicinity about two years, and claims his mother and stepfather live in Chicago. Last year he was convicted of stealing $10, but Judge Quinn, In the largeness of his heart, suspended sentence. If George was a rich man's son he would be sympathized with as a kleptomaniac, but being what he is he is unfeelingly termed a natural born thief.

The bridge will three-quarters of a mile in length and 190 feet above the river.

The embankment forming the east approach to the bridge is 300 feet at the base. F. A. MATTHEWS' NEW DEAL. Mayor Buyers In Assifttlne state Veterinary Gibson In Some Tuberculin Inoculations. The local dairymen who furnish milk to Fort Dodge have united in a request that State Veterinarian Gibson test all the milk herds. He is now at Fort Dodge to conduct the tests in person, and is assisted by Dr. Sayers of Algona and Dr. Hammond of Le Mars. The Messenger, In reporting the matter, says of Dr. Sayers: " Dr. Sayers of Al" gona is mayor of that town by common consent of republicans, democrats aud populists. That, is a pretty strong in- dorsement from the public which knows him best." The tests for tuberculosis in milk cows are being very generally applied now. In his biennial report, soon to be issued, Dr. Gibson will show that he has tested about 2,000 cattle and 20 per cent, of them have answered to the test. All these have been condemned and slaughtered, one third becoming a total loss— "landed," in professional phraseology— and two-thirds being sold as beef with the permission of the government inspectors. The Interstate laws do not allow cattle that have been found to have disease to be shipped over the state line so they must all be shipped to Iowa packing houses, there to be disposed of under the supervision of experts employed by the government. These men are stationed at the packing houses in Sioux City, Cedar Rapids and Ottumwa. RUMOR OP ANOTHER LINE, A Railway from Fairmont South by Way of Ernmet'sbnrg. Strike of Graders on the Port Dodge and Omaha—General Railway of the Week. Suspicious reports are floating about of a new line of railway to run from Fairmont, Minn., southwest through Emtnetsburg. As the Omaha line is building south to Fairmont it has been guessed that possibly the Northwestern system was about to put in a new line west. But the Fairmont Sentinel says all indications are that the Northwest' ern is hostile to the new line. The original survey of the Omaha, or Northwestern, extension south to Fairmont brought it to the Kossuth line in Grant township. It will not now be built south of Fairmont. If it should turn southwest it might interfere with the Sac City-Algona extension. If the southwest line belongs to a new company, however, it will only hasten the short cut from Algona south west. The Sentinel says: "There are some straws which go to show that the great Kansas City system is behind the new line and If this is so our people will have reason to feel elated." Speaking generally of the new road the Sentinel says: A party of railroad engineers came to Fairmont last Friday night and remained in town till Monday, when they quietly slipped out in a ular army to go to the . They entered into a solemn compact before presenting themselves fit t66 station that all should go or else none should go. If any one was plucked b» the examining surgeon then the rest* no matter how sturdy or Stalwart! would refuse to enlist, It was a clole corporation, bound together by localt* and sehtiment.

Buys Another be lii Spencer quit as soon as he found that he was unequal to the extra strain of war duties. Alger bung on, unjustly accused of in- oompetenoy no doubt, but unequal nevertheless to the work at hand. He, too, has surrendered when'it is too late for him to be anything but the scapegoat for such mismanagement of the war as has been shown. Alger is' doubtless a well meaning and amiable gentleman. No one seems to have ever ' suspected him of any special talent for an important administrative office. His appointment would never have been thought of if the work he would be called to do could have been foreseen. This illustrates the constant danger of placing or retaining men In the public f eryice who have passed their vigorous working years. BILLY HAMILTON of the Odebolt Chronicle, who holds a federal appointment by the grace of Senator Gear, talks pf " Dolliver's postoffice editors." It is one of the amusing features of all charges of corrupt or undue influence that the men who make them Jive in large glass houses. Billy's ppinions, however, we hasten to re mark, have not been tampered with or modified. But Billy ought to let other federal officials express tbeiBselyes 090||l<^iftlly without their motives be Js>$ questioned. GEO. D. PERKINS, in his old-time vein, writes that a man cannot trade on past services in this world. It is what he can give now that makes his bur- gain, and if he has nothing to give now it makes little difference what he has given in the past, excepting that he has the consciousness of having fought a good fight. This bit of philosophy should be put as an addendum to the "Rhef'Clarkson tribute to the octogenarians of Iowa. up IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. THIS Emmejjsburg Democrat thinks i( was ajl right fp* Tho*.

John Montgomery has bought a strip of land on the northwest shore of Oko- bml lake and will open a new resort. He has moved the pier of the " Queen" from Spirit lake. The Lamb lumber company has leased land of the Milwaukee road at Clear Lake 126x250 feet and a lbt40xlOO for opal sheds. A new lumber yard will be open in 60 days. It is rumored that ex-Editor Reagan of Armstrong is to become cashier of the Ells worth & Co., bank at the new town of Dolliver. There are others who would accept a position of that Kind. Our Old Alcoiilau Drug Store- Will and Clear Lake. F. A. Matthews of Spencer, our old- time druggiat, has bought the drug store in the Charlton block in Clear Lake. The Mirror says: Mr. Matthews, the senior member of the firm, also has the controlling interest in a drug store at Spencer, and he will alternate between the two places with a competent druggist in each store. Mr. Matthews has been in the business 10 years, and comes to us with the highest recommendations as a man and a pharmacist. The Iowa State Fair. The Iowa State fair will be held at Des Moines from August 25 to September 2. The premiums offered foot $35,000. $7,500 in speed classes will bring fast horses and every day will be a great day on the track. The Texas rough riding contest will be a new and novel attraction and will please all who like exciting scenes. The Guideless Wonders will be a taking feature, as will the diving horses and Dr. Carver's famous shooting exhibition. The city will put on attractions of a better character than ever before seen in Des Moines. There will be the great battle scene of San Juan and special fireworks attractions each night, besides auditorium attractions The grounds and the buildings will be thoroughly prepared and new buildings erected and every thing possible done to enable the people to enjov the occasion. • Good camping privileges will be provided, and tents ready put up can be had of the Des Moines Tent and Awning company at reasonable prices Campers'tickets sold for the entire The Deputy Marshal Comes From Fort Dodge to Take the Avey Stock In Charere-Wlll Fleht the Mortgages. P. M. Curtiss brought the deputy United States marshal from Port Dodge yesterday afternoon to take charge of the Avey stock of goods, and to oust the present holders under the special mortgages given by Mr. Avey at the last moment. Mr. Curtiss intends to try and set aside these mortgages as not bona fide and as invalid under the bankruptcy act. The work of invoioine stock is now going on and it will be 10 days before a new man Is in charge Geo. M. Bailey may be appointed to act. A new complication has arisen in that E. V. Swotting has attached a lot of the goods to cover some back rent The question is whether he can get the goods away from a United States officer. The Avey failure is likely to lead to some interesting developments. EAOE PREJUDICE AT BANOEOFT. A Mulatto Girl Has a Hard Time to Get Marrled-Dr. Howe Finally Officiates. Arthur E. Lewis and Miss Emma D. Dixon were married last week at Bancroft by Dr. Howe. Mr. Lewis is a widower, owning a good farm over near Armstrong, and having several small children. The bride is the mulatto girl that used to live near the Milwaukee depot in Algona, a daughter oi tt. Kinney's wife, a well behaved and pleasant girl while she was hereabouts bhe has been working for Lewis and in that way the attachment sprung up Lewis got hie license at Algona all r l ght V but it looked for a while as though he would have difficulty in getting a ceremony performed at Bancroft, as two preachers and Justice Barge refused to officiate. The couple several hours in the hot sun persuade one preacher to act; but he finally declined. Dr. Howe " came to the rescue and the southerly direction. The most „„.- sistent pumping failed to get a glimmer of light as to who they were, what they were doing, from whence they came or whither they were going. When questioned they simply shook their heads and looked wise. That their visit has deep significance at this time there can be no possible doubt. Want Better Wages. All of the graders on the new line of the Fort Dodge & Omaha road went on a strike Saturday afternoon. The cause is a matter of 50 cents increase in the present wages paid. The contractors have been paying $3.60 per dav, man and team, and $1.50 for common laborers. The strikers demand $4 for man and team and $2 for laborers per day. The strikers number several hundred men and teams. Out of 150 track layers who struck last week at Tara Junction but 20 men are now at er condition.
