The first time Fred White, the demo oratic candidate for governor, visitec Algona he said that all the ills this country suffers were due to the tariff He spent two hours in making the most radical free trade speech evei heard in the city. The next time he came to tell us what was the matter he put in an equal length of time in prov ing that all our ills—and they were the eame ills he told about before—were caused by the crime of 1873. Today he is nominated on a platform which ignores free trade and free coinage and within a month he will be over the state telling the people that their ills —and the same old ills all the time- are due to trusts and imperialism Fred White's career is the career o Wm. J. Bryan also. Bryan began on free trade, then went absolutely to free silver, and now, while he is show ing some reluctance, is squaring aboui to open up exclusively on trusts and imperialism. This also was the career of Governor Boios. It is a singulai fact that within • ten years and less every one of the prominent agitators for upsetting our public policies have flopped at least twice, and that radi cally. The conditions havebeen exact ly the same, but as soon as these false prophets.have found, in Bro. Hinchon'e frank phrase, that " we can't win on it" they have changed front and be 1 gun attributing the same evils to en tirely new causes. There is now practi cally no talk anywhere of repealing f protective tariff, although it was scarcely six years ago that Mr. Bryan said in congress that prosperity coulc never come as long as it existed. Within two months 16 to 1 will "be practically dropped, although within a year Mr. Bryan has been saying that prosperity could never come until we have free coinage. Will the people put any confidence in the statements this year of men who have admitted by their own conduct that at least twice before they were fooled themselves or were fooling the public? Will voters listen seriously to men like Fred White who shows by his present attitude that he was wrong in advocating free trade, and wrong in advocating free coinage at 16 to 1? Can the same old tale of grievances be used this fall to furnish the foundation for a new issue when everybody now admits that either time before the country would have suffered great and possibly irreparable damage if these agitators had been able to make a successful appeal with it? An Unpatriotic Statement. The democratic state platform says: "Wedeprecate and condemn the war against the Filipinos." If President McEinley had done less than he has done the same platform would condemn him for failing to defend the honor of the country, and for nerveless incompetency. This country is not engaged in a war against the Filipinos. Aguinaldo began the war, and to the very lust minute President McKinley cabled to Gen. Otis to avoid hostilities. It was only after our troops had been fired on and after every effort to come to a peaceable adjustment had failed, that our troops resisted a determined effort to drive them off the isl and with the guns and amunition they had themselves furnished Aguinaldo under a square agreement that he would use his influence to help pacify his followers and make it easy for the mltteeon resolutions in the republican state convention. He would have proposed that the party declare for the removal of tariff protection on all commodities controlled by trusts, and it is altogether likely that he would have carried his point. Ibstead of such a plank we have one of Sam Clark's philosophical observations on the industrial situation. All of which illustrates that platform planks represent only personal views. Altogether too much importance is attached to them in campaigns. BRO. HINCHON gave the true key to the democratic position when he said 16 to 1 ought to be dropped because "we can't win on it." The Tenth district cautius chose Bro. Hihchori to write the platform of the party, because he evidently had an eye on the main chance, and the platform was written for the benefit of those who want to win on free silver or off it—anything for the coon. We are curious to see how " we can't win on it" strikes the people as a party platform. EVEN Senator Funk is suspicious and says: " It has been suggested that an appeal from Burlington may bring in Congressman Dolliver with a view to giving the senator relief by holding northwest votes away from Cummins, but this is not probable." The senator should come over into the Tenth, where he would find that Senator Gear and his supporters have been more alarmed over Mr. Dolliver's boom than the Cummins managers have. For some time the Des Moines people have been rather willing to have Dolliver come out. They know, which ought to be apparent to everybody, that an active candidacy by Congressman Dolliver would break into Senator Gear's support much more than the votes it would take from Cummins in the Tenth. We fail to see why both sides do not frankly concede that Dolliver's friends want him for senator, and beyond that are dividing between Gear and Cummins as best suits them, while Mr. Dolliver himself is off on a lecture tour and letting the senator- ship take care of itself. There is no colored man in the Tenth district wood pile. ^ THE Courier says: " Tin that six months ago cost our dealers $6 a box now costs them f 10.75 a box, and nearly every article they handle costs them a like increase. Still according to the 0. D. M. it is all quite natural." THE UPPER DES MOIXES will guarantee that more tin has been used already this year in the United States than was used during the whole of Cleveland's administration. We commend the Courier's attention to the following paragraph in R. G. Dun & Co.'s report for last week: ''The Cramps have discharged many hundred bands and ask Russia to extend time for completion of two war ships, because they can not get the steel. Completion of twenty-one out of thirty-seven vessels building in the Delaware is also affect ed. It is a curious experience for this coun'ry, but shows the gigantic expansion of home demand. For six months billets have sold at £i to $6 higher than the rails made from them. While prices have risen 23 cents for southern pig iron, 50 cents for bicago local coke, and 75 cents for grey forge at Pitteburg. rails have advanced $10 per ton with work covered for all this year, and 400,000 tons or more taken beyond what can not be delivered until next year." vention which meets in Philadelphia in September, tie bus written a song for the occasion which has been set t< music. Corwith Crescent: There is not more competent nor worthy man in Iowa. Mr. Lilly has had a large ex perience and is an unceasing worker. Chester C.

More than 70 dogs are entered in the trial, and the purses nggregate $1050.00. Dogs are entered from near ly ever state In the union and some fine races are assured. E. S. Ellsworth Is building R nev burn on his stock farm near Dows.tt replace the one destroyed by a tornado a month ago. It will be 42 rods aroum it and it will take 42 cords of stone to build the foundation. It will be one o the largest barns in the state. Corwith Crescent: Prof. Smith and Miss Maggie Hunt were the guests o Mr. and Mrs. O. H. Caulkins last week Miss Hunt gave a vocal solo in the M E. church in the evening. Prof. Smitl is organist in the new Methodist church at Algomi. He gave an instru mental solo Sunday evening. Those who remember Z. Solomon it Algona will be interested in the news that his brother George is in bank ruptcy court at Tuma. He states that he has unsecured creditors to the amount of $6,019.73 and that Z. Solomon has arranged to pay court costs and expend for him the sum of $50. Among the darkeys the Lemen Bros circus took from Estherville was a gir 16 years old. Near Spirit Lake she started to go from one car to the other and fell off the train, running ovei her left leg. It was amputated above the knee, but she died from the shock She claims to have been hired by the manager of the circus, but he claims that she was on the train withou t per mission. A SAD DROWNING. Americans to establish a stable government. The president has not given up peaceable proposals at any time. He has sent a commission of our ablest men to propose the very best and most liberal government to the natives, and this commission in order to give Aguinaldo no excuse or ground of complaint allowed him to trick them and Gen. Otis with bogus delegations sent out for the sole purpose of delaying aggressive action until the rainy season had set in. The great body of the Filipinos have accepted our proposals in good faith. Aguinaldo and his bands of Tagols alone are warring. There has never been a minute that this country could have left Luzon, since Dewey sunk the Spanish fleet, without disgracing our flag and becoming ridiculous In the eyes of the world. President MoKinley has done all that any citizen, however little he may believe in permanently holding the Philippines, could ask if he believes in the American flag. We destroyed the authority of Spain. Wa owe it to ourselves to establish at leaet ajgooda government in its place, To turn the islands over to a bandit like Aguinaldo on any plea of our own. convenience or comfort would win for us the contempt of the world, and would force some other clvilived nation to take up the away frpm, lie Roberts bag Jjeen. in_ ujn4o.«l?tedjy have been IT is said that one of the amusing ^hings at the democratic convention vas hearing Rev. Bashor tell how ?red. White got him to come out for governor, promising to support him, ind thus after getting him and Cato Sells well pitted against each other, ;ame in as a natural compromise candidate and took the nomination himself. Rev. Bashor poured his tale of woe into every ear he could find open. He will not wear out much throat tissue for White this fall. UPON the assurances of the Kossuth delegates that J. W. Hinchpn and Judge Wade defeated Murphy of Dubuque, THE UPPER DES MOINES assumes that 16 to 1 is not the issue this fall. But we are surprised to find that over the state the feeling is that Murphy outwitted Bros. Hinchon and Wade and got all he wanted in the opening resolution of the democratic platform. The leading democratic papers say that Murphy has 16 to 1 in stronger than ever and that the conservative element was simply hoodwinked. THE UPPEB DES MOINES resents this imputation upon the sagacity of its townfcrnan. J. W, Hinchon went to Des MotnfcS lo *U/p the IK to 1 nonsense, and ht is ua wily w* any Murphy in Dubuque. Free coinage in knocked out and we predict that Fred. White will not mention it except incidentally, neither will Bryan, if be sturopB the state. Guy Iiimaii Goes Swimming Alone and ills Hody Is Found Alter a Few Hours' Search. Guy Inman, a 12-year-old boy, came from Hutching recently with his mother to visit his uncle in Algona, Wm. Inman. Not living near a river the Des Moines here was a great attraction. Monday morning, unbeknown to his relatives, he went to .the river just north of the ice house and went in by himself. At 12 o'clock Aug. Huenhold noticed his clothes. By 2 o'clooic curiosity was aroused to such an extent as to suggest a search. At 5 o'clock an iron hay rake dragged out the lifeless remaini not far from where the clothes were found. The water was very deep, and the boy had evidently been taken with a cramp. His father came on the 4 o'clock train and the remains were taken back to Hutchins for burial. The grief of the parents was very great. He was an attractive boy, and his lonely death will make all mourn. IV TflIB mGHBOKHOOJ), The Hotel Orleans at Spirit Lake will be entirely torn dowc. Men are at work now taking down the east half.

Dr. Morse attended some and Dr. Kenefick others. The impression is that the sickness was caused by cabbage that had been sprinkled with Paris Green to kill bugs. All are recovering, but those who ate much of the cabbage were very sick. Dolllver Alls-worn Bryan. WINONA LAKE, Ind., Aug. 15.—This was the last day of the Winona Lake, Ind.. assembly and summer school. Hon. J. P. Dolliver of Iowa was the specinl attraction of the day, answering "Pending Problems," by Wm. J. Bryan. Hundreds of people came in from the country, and the great auditorium was crowded to its utmost capacity. The address was considered the most logical and eloquent ever delivered in this park. MOKE ABOUT THE HOG. A JJefeiise of the Dowle Hog Killing In Minnesota—The Hog la " Un- cjeuii." Since the Dowie evangelist, Graves, persuaded the Minnesota farmer to kill his hogs, and was run out of the country, another anti-hog convert has taken up the cause. Seth Bottomley writes to the Fairmont Sentinel to defend Graves. Ho says: The head and front of Elder Graves' offending was " the wanton destruction of property," yet these same people, who " roughly handled and threatened to lynch him," will go home and read in their bibles that Jesus dastroyed 2,000 hoge by allowing the unclean spirits to enter them.—St. Mark, 6th Ohap., 13th verse. From Leviticus, Deuteronomy and Isaiah we learn that the hog ie an unclean beast, and arc forbidden* to eat it, while in Matthew and Peter it is used to typify apostates and unbelievers. We hoast of this ae an age of reason and toleration but the Graves' incident shows that our advancement has been of the crawfish kind, lop when ChrJet caused the drove of hpgs to drown, themjelyeB the R&Opte 8imply »'prayed fcim to, (J§pa,rt puji gf coasts," but these latter day Pharisees treated the elder both as a criminal and a crank. It is by no means rare to find farmers who for conscience sake do not keep hogs or eat porU. There are some half dozen families in this vicinity who are Dowieites, while if we take the human family at large it will be found that over one-third of the people of the globe will neither taste, touch nor handle hog meat. .The law ol Moses npulnst eating unclean meat is an hygienic law, the violation of which brings its own punishment, but it can not be ranked in importance with the golden rule, which as a nation we are smashing every day—notably in the Philippine war. Where E|der Graves and Farmer Milton erred was in not obeying the gospel of greed by selling to others the hogs which they did not believe in eating themselves. That hog meat is only n make-shift diet nd mits of no doubt. Anyone who thinks differently, let him try to run a hotel or a restaurant with B bill of fried pork and its trimmings ns the staple food. How long would their shingle hang out? METHODISTS AT OOLFAX. The State Kpwortb lingua Tins a BIB Chautauqua Started—llev. Day Is Officially Connected with the Movement. The state Epworth League conven tion which WHS held ut Cedar Rnpidsin November, 1806, and which was the largest convention of Epworth Leaguers ever held in Iowa, raised a state assembly commission to canvass the ex pediency of locating a state assembly and training school for summer work along Chautauqua lines, and authorized the locating of such an enterprise, if in the judgment of the commission suit 1 able inducements were held out by any community. The convention elected the commissioners by ballot, and Revs. J. W. Mahood, C. J. English, and F. E. Day, the retiring president of the state League, were selected. The citizens of Colfax douated the old Chautauqua park of 27 acres, made improvements upon it, and with theaid of the Rock Island railroad built a fine auditorium to accommodate 2,500 people. Three assemblies have been held on these grounds, including the one just closed. No better programs have been presented by any Chautauqua in Iowa, and this year the state assembly was favored with the largest attend ance and success of any Chautauqua in the state. In addition to the regular Chaulau- qua features, Bibleschool, departments for training in Junior League and senior League work, and educational lectures are.given. The Sabbaths are devoted to specific religious work along Methodist lines, as are also all the lines of work conducted. Since the incoi poration of the enterprise the management has been in the hands ot Rev. F. L. Loveland of Viuton, Rev. J. W. Mahood of Rock Rapids, Rev. C. J. English of Colfax, and Rev. Day of Algona. The 27 acres of ground in Epworth park furnish as fine camping grounds as can be secured in the west, while the mineral springs flowing on them give an abundance of the best medicinal water to be found anywhere. Arrangements are now being made to sell lots and a number of cottages are assured for next year. There were between 700 and 800 people encamped on the grounds for this .year, and the daily attendance numbered thousands more. There was a handsome surplus this season, and the management is assured of a larger support next season. More people camped on the grounds than ever attended any state Epworth League convention, excepting that held in Cedar Rapids. The following is the board of directors and executive committee: President, Rev. J. W. Muhood, Ottumwa; recording secretary, Rev. F. E. Day, Algonn; corresponding secretary, Rev. L. J. English, Rock Rapids; treasurer, Hon. E. E. Dotson, Colfax; editor, Rov, Frank L. Loveland,. Vinton; Rev. C. V. Corvan, Newton; Goy. L. M. Shaw, Des Moines; Rev. J. G. Van Ness, Marshall town; Hon. J. P. Dolliver, Fort Dodge; Rev. J. W. Potter, Milton; C. W. Crissman, Colfax; Prof. T. Nioholson, Mt. Vernon; Rev. Fred. Harris, Missouri Valley; Rev. C. J. English, Colfax; J. E. Park, Wilton Junction; Hon. P. H, Cragan, Colfax. Bishop MoCabe's reference to the work at Colfax is characteristic. Bishop McCahe says: What grand headquarters Col fax is for the Iowa state Epworth League. It ought to be i sort of Jerusalem for us, whither the tribes go up; the tribes of the Lord. My three days there will never be for- jotten, in the summer of 1898. Beau tiful forest trees, splendid water, perfectly pure atmosphere, and as good society as can be found on this side of Jordan. F. E. DAY. NORTHWESTERN RAILWAY PLANS. The Now JJiie From Hollo Plulno to Blue Earth to be Extended—Is It the Through Line? Last week General .Manager Whitman, Chief Engineer Carter of the C. & N. W,, and Chief Engineer Dike of the I. M. & N. W. arrived in Blue Earth City. They had traveled the whole length of the line from Belle Plaine by team, and at Blue Earth they were met by some of the way up officials of the Omaha. After some lonsultation they resumed their ride to Fairmont, Welcome and Fox Lake. They told the Post that grading would begin at once toward Fairmont, and the Post asserts that this new line is to be the trunk line from Bismarck to hicugo. ANOTHER BIG LUND CASE, A. A. Urunson, n, Hoxle, and J. J. Ityau Sued oil a I3ond—J)ecluro It u Forgery, At this term of court the suit of Smith & Vollmer of Davenport against A. A, Brunson, H. Hoxie, and J. J.

The Iowa Central Construction Train Meets an Accident Near Corwith. The Kanawha train to Corwith went off the track last week, and killed a horse* The Record says the engine was backing up, pushing the tender, followed by a car of horses, four cars of scrapers, merchandise and lumber, and the passenger coach. All the cars left the rails except the coach, the train running about its length over the ties, many of which were broken into kindling wood. The wheels on one side of the forward trucks of the tender plowed into the dirt, the opposite wheels up against the rail. The tender and engine barely escaped toppling over. One of the horses in the car, belonging to Contractor John Herbert, broke a leg by getting it through the slats, and was therefore put beyond suffering. OOL. MARTIN RESIGNS. The Iowa Central Will Have a New Manager—Humors of Sale Are Still Prevalent. It is now definitely announced that Col. Martin will quit the Iowa Central Sept. 1. It is also very definitely announced that the Milwaukee has bought the Iowa Central and will take full charge, Jan. 1. If this transfer is made the question arises whether the tax voted along the line to Algona can be collected. NEWS NOTES. J. A Innes, brother of the former Algona pastor, is putting a day electric circuit in at Eagle Grove to furnish power to the various mills of the city. Algona ought to investigate. Twenty five darkeys grading on the M. & St. L. road at Estherville, left with the Lemen Bros, circus. The Lemen Bros, need some new attractions, but what can they make of these? S. C. Platt swears to the story that at an Iowa Falls quarry workmen have recently taken out a bushel of bones belonging to pre-historic snakes. One rib bone measured an inch around. Bro. Pl«tt bore a good reputation for truth while in Kossuth. The people of Jefferson are rejoicing over the new North western depot, work upon which was begun this week. The depot will be one of the finest in the small cities of Iowa. It will resemble in appearance the depots at Marshalltown and Cedar Rapids, bning only a trifle smaller. It will be pressed brick, trimmed in Bedford limestone, and roofed with slate. The main body of it will be 40x60 feet, which will contain the men's and women's waiting rooms, toilet rooms, ticket office, etc., and wilrbe very handsomely furnished throughout with a high arched ceiling. At the east end of the depot proper will be a covered platform 40 feet long and at the west a similar covered area 60 feet long, to which will be attached the brick baggage house, about 20 feet square, or thereabouts. Thus the com plete length.of the building will be 160 feet. The News at Lone Rock. LONE ROCK, Aug. 21.—The track laying machine is expected to begin work at Burt next Monday, and by Oct. 5 we will probably have, the cars arid the telephone. R. J. White is putting on the steel roofing on his store building. Dr. Lewis of Mornlngside college delivers the address at a picnic at Frank Ranney's. Rev. Ollerenshaw assisted Rev.

Can't Win on 10 to 1. State Register: A most bitter fight in district caucuses was in the Tenth district-over member of the committee on resolutions, W. I. Brannigan of Palo Alto, Sol. Johnson of Green and J. W. Hinchon of Kossuth, were candidates. Each was forced to tell his position on silver. Hinchon said the party couldn't win on 16 to 1. He was applauded and when the vote was taken it was 59 for him. 47 for Brannigan and 25 for Johnson. Mirbt Prepare for Disappointments, Erametsburg Reporter: Kossuth county has a big crop of candidates for county offices this fall. Already fourteen have announced their willingness to serve the people in one capacity or another. There will be several disappointed men after the convention. July Weather. The month was about normal in temperature, the average for the state being 73.1 degrees. The average rain- full for the month was 3,07 inches, which is about a half an inch below the July normal for the state. 6. A. U. ut Philadelphia.
