But he need not contribute to the causes of hie own undoing by presenting a platform that will hot stand one week's honest debate. Aside from a vague invocation of national authority against trusts, his platform contains nothing that nine-tenths of the people are not heartily opposed to. THE senatorial convention meets at Emmetsburg again next Wednesday. If there is any change in the situation it has not been discovered. Ap- narently each of the three candidates will be presented again with exactly the same strength. PRESIDENT SEERLEY of the state normal school says that Iowa needs one or more new schools. That seems to be the sentiment of all educators. The normal school question will be up again this winter in earnest. tlon. A. J. LILLY. The Bryan Platform. A CURIOUS defect In the new statute was discovered Monday in an Algona justice court. A young man was arrested for giving whiskey to a drunken man, but the defense was able to show that there is no penalty for this in the Iowa law. The heading of the statute is as of old, "selling or giving to minors, drunken persons," etc., but the body of the statute raids that no one shall sell or give to a minor nor sell to a drunken person. This change seems to have been slipped in on purpose, but it may have been merely an oversight. Gov. SHAW is planning to go to San Francisco to welcome the 51st Iowa boys home from Manila. a son in the Philippines and is .very anxious to see him before he dies. Estherville has a fine public park. The flower plants are gay with color and redolent with perfume, the grass is green and well trimmed. The trees are making a rapid growth this year. "At least 600 people fromDesMolnes and it is thought more than that number are Spending the summer around West Okoboji and many more go for a day or two at a time," so says Prank Bicknell in his letter. Bert Gregory, who has been in the Williams barber shop in Algona, has bought In Webster City. The Freeman says: The boys are well known as first-class torsorlal artists and rattling good fellows, and their numerous friends and old patrons are glad to see them back In Webster City. The firm name will be Hamaker & Gregory. Success to the boys. Clear Lake Mirror: Joe Tennant, for years proprietor of the Tennant house at Algona, passed through town last week with his wife enroute to the old home in Wisconsin, and stopped over night with Joe's cousin, Henry Knappen. They have a fine rig and propose to make the trip as enjoyable as possible. The old veteran has n bad case of rheumatism and protests that his days of tavern keeping are over with. FBOM THE COUNTY EXCHANGES. ARMSTRONG HAS A SENSATION. Don Morrison, who is in St. Paul, has not now a lawyer forgotten the In his auditorium speech In Chicago Wm. J. Bryan outlined his campaign for 1900. The three propositions that he stated definitely were as follows: w« P» e . end . eav r <? secure international bimetallism is a confession that the gold standard is unsatisfactory, and the failure to secure international bimetallism demonstrates the necessity of independent action \vmcn in America will make silver as well as gold available for coinage, by establishing a parity between the two. 2. The trust is a menace to the welfare of tne people; the attorney-general should enforce the laws against trusts, and recommend new laws if necessary, even to an amendment to the constitution, if that is required to make federal action possible. , 3. The Filipinos should not only be given independence, but protected from outside interference while they work out their own usstiny, There are two flaws in the first proposition. The effort to secure international bimetallism, at the time it was made, was not so much a protest against the gold standard—this country has had the gold standard for 50 years and all international bimetallists fayor maintaining it—as it was an expression oi'a long standing policy of the republican party and of a desire to solve once for all the money problem of the commercial world. It was based upon the inadequacy of the gold supply, which has been so far overcome by the increased output of the mines in the last three years that all international bimetallists are now waiting to see if gold Is in fact going to prove sufficient. Mr. Bryan has failed at any time to refer to the increased output of gold, which anyone can see has a very important bearing on the need for bimetallism. Even If the demand for International bimetallism was a confession that gold is inadequate in quantity, Mr. Bryan's second conclusion is unfounded that the failure to secure it "demonstrates the necessity of independent action." There is no reason to believe that independent action •would result in the free use of both gold and silver. There is every reason to believe that it would result in the use of silver in the place of gold, which would only aggravate the difficulty. More and more of the thoughtful people who are studying trusts are doubtful of the efficacy of national legislation and constitutional amendments. It may well be questioned if Attorney General Remley was not nearer right in urging that the county attorneys have the trust problem to solve. The states have it in their own hands to incorporate these vasts combinations of capital or to refuse. It is thus far a master of state legislation, and while the attorney general of the United States may institute proceedings he does it at long range, while the people have a remedy close at hand and in their immediate control. Mr. Bryan's third proposal is absurd. What position would this country be in in guaranteeing the Filipinos immunity from outside interference and at the eame time leaving them to their own sweet wills in the islands? Such a policy would involve us in controversies we have oot dreamed of.. There are only two courses open in the Philip pipes. One Js to Assume full control accept the responsibility. The THE Cedar Rapids Republican concludes an editorial on Dolliyer and the senatorship by saying: " After all Mr. Delliver's views and attitudes may be largely misviewed and misinterpreted. He may not have done all the things he is charged with on the one side nor all the things he is credited with on the other side." IF the state convention today should declare In favor of removing the tariff from all articles controlled by trusts It would do what Geo. E. Roberts says ought to be done. Trusts should certainly not be protected from foreign competition. THE Courier published last week ,what purported to be a statement 'from Ingersoll In opposition to the war in the Philippines. It turns out that Ingersoll did not write it. His last letter was written to deny the authorship, and was mailed just an hour before he This letter was in part as fol- died. lows: "Editor Clarion: My Dear Sir—I en- Of sentiment for sol- living and tears for • * -*tf ^ruu,L t*JtL~~~ close a clipping from your paper. ^ course you copied it from some exchange The words attributed to me I never uttered or wrote. I have one diers—cheers for the the dead. This is mine, but Blithe rest is by someone else. It is true that I think the treatment of the Filipinos wrong—foolish It is also true that I do not want the Filipinos if they do not want us. I believe in expansion if it is honest." J. B. KENT of Pocahontas, in beating M. E. Dewolf out of the Pocahontas delegation, cut short a promising speakership candidacy in the coming legislature. The speakership canvass will soon be on, and great interest attaches to the organization of the coming house. THE nomination of Thos. A, Way for the legislature not only happily solves the problem that has confronted the Wright-Hancock district for several years, but brings one of the most vigorous and brainy young men of northern lowu into deserved prominence. Mr. Way has made a remarkable success in life, is able to plan and carry out big enterprises, and is an active political worker and organizer. He will be a force in the legislature and a credit to this part of the state. knack be learned shooting ducks up about Bancroft. In St. Paul recently he was first average at the trap with 338 out of 350, and at Eau Claire, Wis he went first with 337 out of 350. The Whittemore Champion Is authority for this: Myron Schenk is getting things In shape to attend the law school at Drake University. He is a delegate to the state convention at Des Moines and will look over the school when the convention meets. Henry Smith was honored in the old " Sod Town" settlement last week. All the old-time Portlanders were present and left an easy chair to ease the hours for one of the pioneers, who is now getting old. Mrs. John Shaffer died very suddenly at Swea City one day last week. She had come to town to visit her daughter and have a dress fitted. She was in good health and was feeling well, but of a sudden she failed to answer a question and her head dropped. She died the same afternoon of paralysis. E. C. Anderson is back to Bancroft from his Colorado trip. The Register says he had a visit with J. G. and Mrs Graham and P. J. Byrne. Mr. Graham is still pushing Yeomenry, In the Cripple Creek country now, and is doing well. Pete has been in very poor health for a long time but is apparently holding his own now. A curious incident is reported from German Valley. The German Reformed minister occupied the pulpit one night when the Presbyterian pastor was to have preached. He had not finished his opening prayer when the leading Presbyterian asked him if he had not prayed long enough and opened a song. A war of the denominations followed, fortunately bloodless. Peter Jensen of Swea City has had his boy to Chicago to consult some kind of a crank named Dr. Dowie. The doctor says that the boy and all persons who have epilepsy are possessed of the evil spirit and therefore are seldom healed because of the unbelief of the people. The boy seemed easier for a couple of days, but is as bad as ever again. Jay E. Randall came home home from Portland, Or., on the Canadian 9on-ln-L,nw of One of the Citizen* Skip* Out — Suspicious Circumstances. Armstrong has been excited for a week over a case of mysterious disappearance. Jap Moore, a son-in-law of C. B. Mathewe and a well known citizen, has been lost Bight of under peculiar circumstances. For a while it was thought ho had been foully dealt with or bad become demented. At present It is thought he has left for greener fields, although he was not financially involved nor unhappy in his domestic relations. The story of his peculiar movements before going is told at length by the Journal: "Mr. Moore left Wednesday morning, July 19, on horseback for the purpose of looking for H steer that was supposed to have broken out of the pasture and strayed away. He told his wife that he would not be away long and would perhaps stop In Armstrong on his way back. He stopped at Geo. Stewart's farm about 11 o'clock and inquired for the animal, and about 3 p. m. arrived at Tom Clark's, his brother-in-law, southeast of town about eight miles. He got something to eat here and complained of being tired and not feeling well, expressed that If he could take a nap would perhaps feel better. He slept until about 5 o'clock and then started north In further pursuit. Some parties who were working on the road near Prank Gibbon's place talked with him and about 6 o'clock he was at J. A. Erickson's, about six miles east of town. He told Mr. Erickson that he was hunting for an animal that got out of the pasture, and said he thought he would ride east and then north. No one has been found that talked with him after he left Erickson's. About two hours later a man on horseback answering his description wne seen riding east only two miles east of J. A. Erickson's. The next morning his horse was found in the public highway about the place where he was seen at dusk." A blanket belonging to Moore has been found near Ledyard, and it is known that he took the night train to Elmore, where he was seen. Prom there he went to Mankato, and from there nil trace of him is lost, ' He had lived In Armstrong 12 years. AFTER THE BIGELOW ESTATE, Liens Are Filed on the Aljjoim Electric Light Plant to Hold Uittelow'8 Property, The city of Algona has held $1,000 of the money due the Bigelow estate for the electric light plant to cover all back claims. Three liens have been filed on the plant to secure some $600 out of this $1,000. They are filed by the John Paul lumber company, J. A. Hamilton & Co., and Schieren & Co of Chicago. The Bigelow estate will not pay the outstanding indebtedness. It Is said it will not pay over 60 cents on the dollar. If these claims go in with the rest they get only their share If they can be established as liens they will be paid in full. Two lawyers from Lincoln were in town last week representing the estate and said they would fight the claims. Bonar & Fellows represent the claimants. to the exclusion of the remaining creditors. A few days ago these prefered creditors foreclosed their mortgages and took posession of the stock. The creditors unprotected by mortgages were thus left out In the cold. They employed the services of Attorney Curtiss and through him immediately instituted bankrupcy proceedings against the Avey firm. NEWS NOTES. The railroads of the state have promised round trip tickets for one fare, good any day of the state fair Aug. 26 to Sept 2, 1899. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad has sent in a rush order for 2,000 freight cars to be built as rapidly as the shops can construct them. Mrs. Abbie Sharp of Okoboji fame has lost her son. He was held up by highwaymen at Seattle and died from the injuries he received. The remains were brought to Okoboji. Fred Gilbert and Charley Budd of Des Moines are making arrangements to have a big three days' shoot at Arnold's park, the latter part of August.

In his letter to the Champion he describes a scene in Canada: At Calgary the editors received their first welcome since leaving Vancouver. The party was directed to the fair grounds where a fine entertainment was given for their benefit. Some 400 Indians of all ages and both sexes were the entertainers. Horse races, footraces, tugs-of-war were given by both sexes for our amusement. A number of cowboys had brought in a lot of wild horses, which they "broke" to ride and they had also several wild steers which they turned loose and proceeded to show us how they caught them with their "lassos." One of them broke a steer's leg in throwing it and it was necessary to shoot it to put it out of its misery. This was very neatly done by one of the cowboys. m " entertainment was better The entire Iowa meet per is picking acres last Other ie to leave them as soon as we can, without appearing to be driven out.

Hatch, who sold the Whittemore Champion to Jay Randall, is in Montana, He writes to the Champion and says: " I have purchased a sheep ranch and entered a partnership with John C. Tintinger, who owns the ranch adjoining. We run the two ranches together and have about 5,000 sheep to care for, besides a number of horses cattle and swine, which are of minor importance. The climate agrees with all, which is sufficient to make us contented and happy." Speaking of the animal life of the country he adds 1 "Of the snake family there is the garter snake, blue racer, rattle snake and whiskey. The two latter are poisonous but the bite of either is said to be antidote for the bite of the other. Persons bitten by the latter outnumber all the others a thousand times. It is a paradise for anglers as well as shootists, as my stomach can at present testify for I have just filled up on a dinner of trout, the best in the world." Should Stay Near Algoiia.

He is still hopeful, and says he has millions in sight. STREET OAR PRANOHISE. The City Council Will Consider Sub- mlttluK a Street Car Franchise to the Voters. E. V. Swotting presented a sample franchise to the city council Saturday evening for a street car line, but the meeting was adjourned until this evening, and the matter will be taken up then. The council cannot grant a franchise but can only submit one to the voters, It is entirely likely that the matter will come on for a vote If the terms of the franchise are acceptable. There can be no doubt that it would be a good thing for Algona if capital can be found to put in u line to the depots. TREE METHODISTS WILL MEET. . ?1, and will be given 'by Jud|e Alfred Ellison.
