Wright, Com. asked whether I vfras correctly quoted. 1 never Sftid at Des Moines or anywhere else that the money question should be Sent to the rear. I have insisted at all times and In all places that the money question will be before the country until bimetallism is restored.' lhave repeated over and over again that this nation must act alone, without waiting for the aid or consent' of any other nation, and that 16 to Us the only ratio at Which the mints can be opened. There is no possible excuse for the constant effort of a section of the press to misrepresent the views of free silver men." To cap the climax Bryan went from Chicago to Lincoln, Nebr.. and there dictated the democratic platform, the opening plank of which is in such marked contrast to the opening plank in the Iowa platform that its real purpose cannot be misunderstood. It is as follows: " Our confidence in the principles set forth in the Chicago platform has been increased as those principles have been vindicated by events. The gold standard is less defensible now than it was in 1896, since the president has confessed its failure by sending a commission to Europe to secure international bimetallism, while the inability of the commission to secure foreign aid Is added proof that the people of the United States must act alone If they expect relief. The present legal ratio of 16 to 1 is the natural and necessary ratio, and the opponents of that ratio have nothing to offer In its place but the evasive and ambiguous phraseology which for years furnished to the gold standard advocates a mask behind which to hide while they secretly labored to make gold monometallism permanent. Any Improvement In business conditions due to the Increased production of gold or to a favorable balance of trade, instead of supporting the gold standard doctrine shows that more money makes better times and points the way to bimetallism as .the means of securing a permanent Increase In the volume of a standard money throughout the world. The republican scheme to lessen the value of standard money by making gold the only legal tender money has at last become apparent to all, and must be resisted by the debt-paying and wealth- producing classes of the country. The plan to retire the greenbacks in the interest of national bank notes, denounced by the democrats in 1896, but then defended by the republicans, has boldly stalked forth from its hiding place and threatens the formation of a gigantic paper money trust." If Bryan was overcome for a moment in Iowa by the political sagacity of the Iowa conservatives, he has apparently recovered himself. His present intention is evidently to rise or fall with 16 to 1, and all who question the " diyin3 ratio" may as well part company with him at once. being to get a lot of Cummins republican votes for htm. The same scheme is ifi waiting for thesenatorial nominee, when the district names one. It looks as though the United States senator- ship may prove embarrassing in some districts. STATE SUPT. BARRETT says the state needs three new normal schools, and suggests that "a good plan would be for the legislature to constitute a commission and authorize it to establish these schools, starting one each year." It is doubtful If the state will ever again experiment with locating commissioners. The legislature is the responsible body that should do the locating. FRANK W. BICKNELL has a theory that C. T. Hancock has refused to act again as state chairman for the republicans because of his relations to Senator Allison. No such far-away reason is needed. Mrs. Hancock has been very decidedly opposed to his accepting the chairmanship again, and though there might be a hundred other reasons, the other ninety-nine are not worth mentioning. DEMO'S WILL NAME THEM. As Good as Settled Who Will the Race on That Side. Make Senatorial Situation Is Unchanged— Coming Connty Convention and the Candidates* D. W. HUBN of Clear Lake HUB been nominated for the legislature for Cerro Gordo county. He is an able man. THE UPPER DBS MOINES has reprinted all the expressions on the local senatorial situation that have come to its notice. Our readers know all that has been said, good, bad, and indifferent. It Is to be observed that the neighboring papers have as a rule preserved a discreet silence. THE Ruthven Free Press suggests: "What is the matter with dropping the candidates now in the field and returning Senator Funk? We will never find a better man." Senator Funk would not accept, and all talk of him is without his consent. THE Gear-Cummins trouble has broken out in a new spot. It is proposed to elect H. O. Weaver of Louisa county to succeed C. T. Hancock as chairman of the republican state central committee, and the Cummins men say Gear might as well be chosen himself. Bryan Forces the Money Issue. At Des Moines it looked as though Bryan had consented to the new program of attributing all our ills to trusts and imperialism. If he did waver then it has become evident during the week since that it was only temporary, and that his back has again stiffened decidedly on 16 to ]. He went from Des Moines to Chicago, and within 48 hours said in reply to the question why it was not expedient to avoid the 16 to 1 question: " You cannot decide public questions on the basis of expediency. As a member of the party I have said and still say that an abandonment of the ratio of 16 to 1 would be equivalent to an abandonment of the money question, because no free-coinage law can be adopted until a ratio is agreed •upon; and, since the 16 to 1 ratio has been agreed upon, an abandonment of it would mean either that the ratio is wrong, or that, although it is right we are afraid to advocate it. To leave out all mention of a ratio would be to return to the ambiguous and deceptive phraseology which characterized the financial platforms of both the democrat and republican parties for several campaigns." Not content with forcing 16 to 1 squarely to the front he took the bottom out of the trust argument by saying that our present high prices are an illustration of the advantages of a big- £er money supply: " The increasing supply of gold from the Klondike, the importation of gold to cover trade balances, and an expenditure of $300,- 0QQ,QOO of borrowed money, taken in connection with the large crop, have brought a temporary advantage, but instead of strengthening the gold standard, an increasing supply of money proves the theory that more money means better prices." Sfcill further, In anpther interview, be specifically repudiated the schemes IN 1861 Wendell Philips made a speech in New Bedford, Mass., the evening after word came that Fort Sumter had been fired on. Almost the opening paragraph of that remarkable and soon retracted address was as follows;"Here are a series of states girding the gulf who think their peculiar institutions require that they should have a separate government. They have a right to decide that question without appealing to you or me. A large body of people, sufficient to make a nation, have come to the conclusion that they will have a government of a certain form. Who denies them the right? Standing with the principles of '76 behind us who can deny them the right? I maintain on the principles of '76 that Abraham Lincoln has no right to a soldier in Fort Sumter." Probably our history does not afford a more notable instance of a total mis- standing of the "consent of the governed" guaranteed by the spirit and princilpes of '76, unless some of the recent utterances of Hoar, Atkinson, Bryan, et al., are entitled to be named in such company. ED. SHERMAN of the Fort Dodge Post, who belongs to the Hinchon-Wade wing of the democracy, says: "Say what you will, the fact remains that the two great issues before the people today are trusts and imperialism." It looked last week as though this side was on top, but how about Bryan's interviews and speeches for ten days? Bryan says the money issue is the real issue. WE commend the Courier's attention to Wm. J. Bryan's opinion that our present high prices are due to the increased amount of money in circulation. IT is already evident that the non- committed on the senatorship will be in control in the legislature. gt tbe conservative men at the Des Moinea convention, saying: " My attention has been called to the re- rt sent put from Des Moines to the effect # I WM lylUlnff to subordinate tl»e silver " I hayebeen HARD coal is 66 cents more a ton this year in Algona because there are not boats enough on the great lakes to carry the tonnage. Geo. E, Roberts, writing from Washington, notes another phase of the same trouble: " The rate for carrying iron from Duluth to Lake Erie points has advanced from 45 and 50 cents a ton to $1.80. Every old tub that can be pressed into service is in use A vessel will nearly pay for itself in one season at the present rates." Here is another item for the Courier's " trust" list. The tug boat trust catches us all. -* , A FREE SILVER republican named Parker has ..been nominated in Clay IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Spirit Lake wants a new hotel. The Milwaukee is building a stone arch bridge where it crosses East Okoboji. The stations on the M. & St. L. between Estherville and Spencer will be Raleigh, Terril, and Langdon. Emmetsburg Tribune: Mrs. Amy Hubbard went to Algona Tuesday for a visit with her daughter, Mrs. Rutherford. Hancock county will have a big fair at Britt, Sept. 12-14. Hancock has the reputation of making a success of things and this fair will be well worth attending. Emmetsburg Democrat: Mrs. Bert Snow left Monday for Algona, where she will visit friends for a -short time. She will also visit at Irvington before returning. Clear Lake has a handsome new fountain. It is automatic, constructed for man or beast, and includes a dog trough. The fountain is of cast iron and weighs 570 pounds. Buffalo Center Tribune: Mrs. G. W. Pangburn enjoyed a visit from her father, mother, and sister from Algona last week. Her sister, Miss Carrie Rice, bus accepted a position as stenographer in G. W.'s law office. Fred Cory of Wesley has bought out the Forsythe interests in the Sunbeam photo gallery at Emmetsburg. Mr. Cory tells the Tribune he will have the place in operation in a few days and the business will be continued permanently. The Montgomery Ward Co. has sued the Fort Dodge Post for $40,000, alleging libel. The Post has been warning its readers against catalogue stores. J. J. Ryan is one of the Post's main men, and Ed. Sherman has been doing the writing complained of. Rolfe Reveille: A. F. Bacon, better known to our readers as Bert Bacon, is a candidate for superintendent up in Kossuth county. Bert is a former Rolfe boy and by hard knocks has gradually crawled up. He is a practical man and will make Kossuth a good superintendent. A. D. Smith of Eraraetsburg is home from the Klondyke. One of the reasons, he says, for so many failures in Alaska is the fact that so many men go there who know nothing of the work they have to do there, and that for the right class of men the country is all right. He adds that the reason he goes back is because he can do much better there than he can in Iowa. Little Miss Edna Cole's Algona friends will read with sympathy of a curious accident tljat has befallen her at Bode. She was ironing and one of her irons got too hot to use, and she attempted to cool the iron by pouring water on it while holding the iron in her hand. As a result the steam scalded her hand and fingers so frightfully that the cutiole pealed off, and it is expected she will lose the nail from at least three of her fingers. Spencer is to have a hotel and opera house combined. It is planned to put about. $25,000 into the building and have an opera house with a seating capacity of 600 on the second floor, the balance of the building to be used for hotel purposes. The hotel will have forty-five sleeping rooms, ten of them with bath rooms, and everything will be strickly up-to-date and first-class. H. J. Tremain will have charge of both the hotel and opera house. WILL IT EXTEND ? Iowa Central Will Decide whether to Go Beyond Altioua. Next week Friday the Iowa Central •it is now practically certain that Supt. Van Erdewyk will be renomlnated for county superintendent by the democrats, and while he does not want to run, THE UPPER DES MOINBS expects to see his name on the ticket. With Treasurer Smith and Sheriff Chrlstensen renotninated, as they will be, the democratic ticket is easily known in advance, and no one will make the mistake of assuming that it is not a strong one. A vigorous effort will be made to elect all of these county officials, and the republicans should meet a week from Friday with this situation clearly in view. It Is not yet even hinted who will be put up against Mr. Cowles. Neither is anyone suggested for senator. The democrats will wait until the republicans get Into the field. No Light on the Sennloi-Hlilp. The 47th district senatorial convention will meet again Friday at Emmetsburg. There Is no suggestion yet of a settlement of the contest. There are some who think that Grim and Cory will arrange some means of deciding by which one or the other will take it. Some think a new man from Clay county will bo nominated. Some think all three of the present candidates should withdraw and allow the convention to caucus on a new man. There Is nothing, however, to really indicate any change from Cory 16, Crlm 18, Clarke 11.' Republican County Convention. The republican county convention meets a week from Friday. There are seven can didates for sheriff, all of them good men with considerable following, and the contest of the convention will be between them. They are Lou Millen of Cresco, Geo. F. Holloway of Bancroft, A. C. Willey of Lu Verne, Jos. Cosgrove of Wesley. H. S. Dalley of Whittemore, Fred Miehe of Swea City, and Lew Owens of Portland. For treasurer there are three candidates, C. O. Eckholm of Swea, John H. Ward of Wesley, and A. J. Berryman of Bancroft. For superintendent there are three candidates, with Prof. Bailey of Bancroft and B. F. Reed of Algona suggested; F. H. Slagle of Algona, L. C. Bowers of Algona, and A. F. Bacon of Sexton. For surveyor C. A. Tellier and Prof. Lilly of Algona are the candidates. For supervisor John G. Smith of Algona and L. Barton of Lu Verne are now finishing one term and are up for renomination. Wm. Paetz of Sexton and N. O. Movich are also candidates. For coroner no one has been announced, although the office is to be filled at this time. Dr. Morse of Algona is coroner at present. There is a very general intention expressed everywhere to select from these candidates a ticket which will be well distributed, which will recognize the localities which most deserve it, which will add strong names to the ticket, and which will baelected. Democrats AlHo at the Beer Town. The democratic senatorial convention for the 47th district will be held in Emmetsburg on Sept. 7 at 2 o'clock p. m. for the purpose of putting in nomination a candidate for state senator. The representation will be as follows: Clay, 6; Dickinson, 4; Emmet, 4 ; Kossuth, 12 ; and Palo Alto, 9. In This Senatorial District. Sac Sun: Mr. Peter E. Narey of Spirit Lake, deputy collector of internal revenue for the northern district of Iowa, was in Sac City last Thursday and Friday. He predicts the nomination of Crim of Emmet county in the " Big Five" senatorial dis trict, and seems to be satisfied from a Gear standpoint with such a result. Estherville Vindicator: The Algona UPPER DBS MOINBS did not look with approval on the proposition to submit the selection of a candidate for state senator in this district to the state central committee. The trouble with the U. D. M. and the Kossuth fellows In general is that there are several "good brainy" men over there, each one of whom would like to be state senator, and they are all cherishing the hope that at some turn of the wheel of political fortune the lucky number will fall on a Kossuth county man. Political Notes. W. I. Branigan says pointedly, in speaking of the Palo Alto delegation at the state convention, " with reference to the financial question, there was not a trimmer among them." Bro. Branigan seems to be hinting at Kossuth.' Senator Finn, who was a conspicuous delegate in the democratic state convention, said: " I am in favor of the boys out in the Philippines, fighting the battles of the country. I do not wish for a moment to be placed in a position of not supporting the boys. They have fought nobly and are entitled to the spoils of their work. If I was sure that the Iowa boys were in favor of holding the islands I would be with them." m. Topic: Help Y. P. S. C. E. at 7 p. ing the Pastor. Dr. Day's theme for discourse at the Methodist church next Sunday morn Ing will be "Christianity, a Free bu not a Cheap Religion." Evening "Can We Depend on the Bible?" Al welcome. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. are expectec county to run against E. P. Barringer of Palo AHo for the legislature. Barringer ie an active Gear supporter, while Parker, it Is .understood,, will yote for Cumm.lnj if elected, theeobeme decides whether to build beyond Algona, The impression prevails that the work will go on, and that right-of-way will be condemned this fall. Those on the inside say there is nothing in the rumored sale of the road, and many be^ lieve Col. Martin has started the reports with a view .to letting himself out easily.

Bicknell's Des Moines letter:. The Central of Iowa has filed with the board of railroad commissioners ah application for the right to condemn lands in Algona for a depot and terminals The extension now being built to that town is getting well along, and it is found that more land Is needed than could be had without these proceedings.
