As to his antecedents, he is of noble line age, of French origin, a man of great erudition, in politics a liberal, in religion a Roman Catholic, a cbHstain without guile or hypocrlcy, by prof- fession a lawyer and by the suffrage of the Dominion of Canada a premier of the same. Now as to the Courier's umbrage the Dominion of Canada wants to build a road to the gold re- fions. The road cannot be built until the Alaska boundary line is defined.

The Iowa democrats are in session today at Des Moines trying to decide whether to stick to 16 to 1 or not The probability is that 16 to 1 will be dropped. The 16 to 1 candidate for governor is Rev. Basbor, a visionary who spoke in the 1896 campaign In Algona, and who refused to discuss Geo. E. Roberta' figures on market prices The anti-16 to 1 candidate is OatoSells! United States district attorney under the Cleveland regime, Judge Wade of Iowa City is talked of as a compromise candidate, but the judge is too shrewd to consider a nomination even if it should be offered, Gov. Altgeld of —' vfwr. Augeia ot Chicago has come out in favor of sidetracking the 16 to 1 issue. A big demonstration is being made in the east and south by the anti-16 to 1 faction Bryan is about the only prominent leader who sticks to the idea that tbe free coinage at the old ratio can be made a vital lesue in 1900, and Bryan, in epite of hie great popular hold is not strong enough alone to dictate a platform. Our friend of the sprightly Odebolt onronicle wants to look out for " Dolliver's postoffice editors." Gov. SHAW evidently was too much for Gen. Weaver at Colfax. The general is claiming that he didn't have a fair show.
