BACHMAN, the republican nominee for the state senate from the 47th district, is about 40 years of age, was at one time superintendent of schools in Palo Alto county and later talked of lor the legislature, takes an active interest in politics, is genial to meet, a successful physician and a man who •wears well. In Kossuth, where he is -well known, everybody has a good •word for him and congratulates him. He will be a popular member of the coming senate, and a reliable and vigorous republican worker. The West Bend Journal gives the following biographical sketch of Dr. Bachman: Dr. Bachman was born and raised on a farm in Greene county, Wisconsin. He came to Iowa in 1880 and, graduating from the medical department of the S. U. I. at Iowa City, came to West Bend in 1882 and settled down to a successful practice of his chosen profession. In politics he has always been a working republican, not only in county affairs, but has taken an active part in state and national campaigns. In 1883 he was elected county superintendent of schools by a large majority over his democratic opponent. The county at that time being about evenly divided between the two parties, candidates on either ticket were often elected by majorities of three or four votes only, and the signal victory of the young doctor then was but an omen of his future success, and the metal of which he was made. At home he has held the office of mayor three consecutive terms and has been a member of the board of education almost since the organization of •the town, and the splendid school building and school system here is, to a large extent, the result of his untiring energy and unselfish interest in public affairs. He has been actively identified with almost every private and public enterprise that has made his home town the thriving little city it is today. And in the larger field of state legislation, as a member of the upper house, the Journal confidently predicts that he will fulfill the expectations of his most enthusiastic friends in the same degree that his opportunity will be enlarged, and that the republicans of the 47th district will have to make no apologies for their senator. THE Courier says: "It [the U. D. M.] does not explain how the rate on iron affects the price of hard coal, nor how the rates on the lake would materially affect the trade throughout the whole country." We are informed by our local dealers that hard coal is shipped to the west by the lakes and that the rate on the lakes has gone up 65 cents a ton, because there are not boats enough to haul the tonnage. The demand for boats to haul iron ore from Duluth has caused the raise in all lake freights, as was mentioned by Geo. E. Roberts in the item THE UPPER DBS MOINES quoted last week. We mention the matter merely to show how prices have been pushed up by the tremendous demand all over the country for everything. i» THE Sioux CJty Journal concedes that in the main party platforms are tbe expression of personal opinions, but urges that "party platform deolar actions are broadly significant on questions comprehensively before the public and upon which public sentiment has token deflnite form." This, of cpurae, IB true, and THE UPPER DBS MQJNKB should have said so, but it bad J» wind those port of side declarations apeejp info every plaWprjn with 'reference to leading, issues, because some one or two men who get into the committee room have ideas ol their own. Party platforms are " broadly-significant" in so far as they express the general trend of party purpose and sentiment. But even thei the history and known purpose of political parties are their best platforms. THE Stouffers have had the Sac Sun for six years, and are celebrating a birthday. They print one of the news lest and best papers in Iowa, and that is saying a great deal. MAYOR JOHN MACVICAR of Des Moines has announced that he will not accept a third term. The mayor has been a fighter in Des Moines politics, and a man of ideas as to municipal affairs. In the main he has been right, and Des Moines will live to regret that it did not extend municipal ownership, as he urged. It will be a long time probably before the city will have mayor who will devote the honest and Intelligent effort to its welfare that John Macvicar has. THE senatorial convention over in the Winnebago, Worth and Mitchell district comes next. It meets next Monday and may equal the Big Five convention. Our good wishes go with Senator Gilbertson. IN a state convention a candidate for office expects his strength to develop within four or five ballots. Even in county convention such as will convene in Algona Friday the seven candidates for sheriff will expect a break within ten or a dozen ballots. There is no good reason why in a district convention such deadlocks should occur as have made several districts in Iowa notorious this fall. THE 47th senatorial district lies partly in the Tenth and partly in the Eleventh congressional districts, and it contains some fighting Cummins anc Gear men. Then, .too. it had three candidates about equally mated foi strength, first and second choice There are reasons for those 5,000 bal lots after all. NEWS AND COMMENT. M. F. Healey of Fort Dodge spoke at Havelock to the oid settlers and told them that the thing to do is to stand by the Me Kinley administration. He is a life long democrat, but he told them that he felt he had to choose between being a patriot and a traitor, and he preferred the former. The New York Sun of Aug. 14 said editorially of Dolliver's speech at Chautau qua, N. Y.: Our compliments to the Hon Jonathon P. Dolliver of Iowa, who stated the case to Chautau qua and to the countr; with a precision and force and felicit, rarely equalled. His remarks on the sub jects of expansion and national responsi bility, as drawn forth by the questions of Baptist clergyman of the Atkinson school formulate the creed ' of Americanism There are other statesmen from the fin middle-aped state which produces Dolliver There is Hon. David Bremner Henderson for example. Here is a! plank from the democrats state platform of last year. Why was i left out this year, or. Is til is one of tin planks that once written is for all time We point to the fact that the claims of thi republican party in the last campaign have proven false, .and not one of the pledges made by that party has been fulfilled. The citizen was urged to vote for McKinley am prosperity; confidence was to be restored the mills were to open up; unemployed men would find work; the farmer would find a profitable market for his products. Al these and more were promised to take place as soon as it should be known that McKin ley was elected. Months have passed since that event, and instead of the fulfillment o these promises, prosperity has not made its appearance; the mills and shops are closing down; the army .of the unemployed is growing larger, and the farmers of Iowa since hie election ai'e marketing their prod ucts at a less price than over before. Bro. Hinchon says lie endorses the Emmetsburg Democrat's report of the cau CUB at Des Moines, but fails to reprint the report. Here is one paragraph of it: "The first informal ballot gave Mr. Hinchon 54, and not 59 as stated by the Register anc Messenger, the writer 47, and Mr. Johnson 25. Thus the combined opposition to Mr. Hinchon was 72 against 54. Friends oi Johnson came to the writer and offered to supportjus on the first formal ballot, but we declined. It was decided to permit Mr. Hinchon, who had a plurality, but not majority, to serve." After the backing THE UPPEH DES MOINES has tendered the honored member of that committee from Kossuth it grieves us to have him thus tamely give up the case. We, on our own account, fling back this report into the teeth of Bro. Branigan. J. W. Hinchon had a majority all the time, and the only reason Branigan and Johnson got any votes at all was merely for appearance sake. The Iowa Catholic Messenger, in its report of the democratic state convention, says: "Hinchon very wisely told the Tenth district delegation that they' couldn't win on 10 to 1' and the delegation promptly gave him 59 votes as against 47 for Bran- , S, C. Platt says in the Iowa Falls Sentinel: Gov. Roosevelt of New York and Congressman DoJlivev of Iowa spoke from the same platform at Ocean Grove, New Jersey, the other day, Teddy and Jonathan are a great pair to draw to, and of them would need-an Introduction are the anywhere iu the United States. They both young enough to be eligible to senate and old enough for the presidency. Keep your eyes on these two young men. The Burlington Gazette, which is one of the ablest democratic papers in the west, makes fun of the democratlcstate platform: The Gazette would not say anything to destroy the influence of the democratic platform, bat the hand that penned it and the mind that conceived it will never make a success in compiling statesmanlike documents. Its wording sounds like the composition of B school boy, and it lacks in forceful language and earnestdiction. Itis a decided failure as a well written document, and its shortcomings in language and its essential leaning to verbiage will never make its author famous. President McKinley gave the real platform of the republican party in his address to the Methodists at Ocean Grove, N. J. He said: "I think we have that love for our country and that the people love our flag more than they ever did before; and wherever that flag is raised it stands not for despotism and oppression, but for liberty, opportunity and humanity, and what tbat flag has done for us we want it to do for all peoples and all lands which by the fortunes of war have come within its jurisdiction. That flag does not mean one thing in the United States and another thing in Puerto Rico and the Philippines. There has been doubt expressed in some quarters as to the purpose of the government respecting the Philippines. I can see no harm in stating it in this presence. Peace first, then with charity for all, an established government of law and order, protecting life and property and occupation, for the well being of the people, in which they will participate under the stars and stripes," Dr. Albert Shaw In the Review of Reviews has a theory of the Iowa democratic platform which accords with what the makers of it undoubtedly intended. But he wrote before he knew how effectually Mr. Bryan had repudiated what was done at Des Moines. Dr. Shaw says: This year, however, with Mr. Bryan himself to impress his views upon them, they have adopted a platform which does not contain the word " silver" from beginning to end, nor make any mention of the cabalistic ratio of 16 to 1. It is true, of course that this latest Iowa platform endorses the Chicago document of 1896. And if it had done that and gone no further it might properly be said that the Iowa democrats still make the doctrine of free silver their principal tenet. But this platform of last month does not stop with an endorsement of the declarations of 1896. It .proceeds with an ingenious attempt to build up new issues for the new times. IN THIS MEIGHBOBHOOD. Bert Mathews is putting a fine soda fountain in his Clear Lake drug store. • At the Sue City fair last week the attendance varied from 8,500 to lO.OOOa day. Glen Brunson won a gold medal last week on singles at a tennis tournamenl at Forest City. Fort Dodge has an club. It meets each the milk question. R. H. Aishton, former superinten- tendent of this Northwestern division is very sick at Boone. anti-tuberculosis week to discuss Rev. Brooks is recovering at Livermore. His foot was cut off about a third of the way to his knee. The Illinois settlers about Corwith are going to have a picnic tomorrow J. A. Funk of Iowa Falls will address them, Emmelsburg Reporter: Eli Burbank of Algona was in Erametsburg Wednesday. He was on his way to Esther- vine, where he was called as.a witness in court. C. E. Mallory's step-father, or othei relative, B. V. Andrees, was caught stealing in Jas. Hofius' store in Buffalo Center. It is a mixed-up affair, with lots of ugly rumors. The Fort Dodge council was tied on a new ordinance prohibiting the sale of milk in the city from cows that have not been tested, and the ordinance was defeated. Fort Dodge use to let cows pasture in the streets Humboldt Independent: Mrs. A. D. Clarke and son Fred drove down from Algona Thursday to make arrangements for Fred's attendance at the college next year. Mrs. Clarke was much pleased with the progress made in the summer school. EmmetBburg Tribune: Miss Lutie Wallace of Algona has been for some time visiting at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Ruthven. Miss Wallace was for some time employed in .the Gowans store, and is now on her way to Parker, S. D., where she will teach' school. Pocahontas Record: The talk of the Northwestern building from Sac City to Algona has been revived a little recently and various daily papers have been giving it out that the road would be built next year, claiming that the imformation was obtained "from the best authority." Bailey makes the following irreverent reference to Rev. Brooks, whose foot was cut off a week ago by the oars: Brooks was one of the presidential electors on the national prohibition ticket three years ago. A ticket that was erratic as he was and received 352 votes in the state of Iowa. Frank McGruder says he will go just as fast on one leg, but we doubt it. • Britt Tribune: We notice among the long string of candidates in Kossuth county that but three of them give the little TitonkaTopioany recognition. If every voter In the radius of 10 miles of Titonka would throw away partisan politics and prejudice for once only, and vote unanimously for the candidates that have recognized them and their town, it might elect every one of them and establish a precedent hat will never be forgotten in Kossuth county politics by would-be^politioians. Uuwholdt Independent; Mrs. J»ne Walters of Algona was making bead, quarters with Fannle Tyler last week ind calling on old Wends is pafeotft. Mrs. Walters is this weeU wjth friends in Humboldt with headquarters at J, W. Lairman's. Mrs. Walters was one of tbe early settlers of both Dakota and Humboldt and many of the older settlers in this neighborhood have broken the bread of her bounty. The editor of this paper is one who remembers substantial favors from this estimable lady and her family in the early lays of the settlement here. She now lives as she hns for many years with her daughter, Mrs. W. J. Lang, of Algona. We truly wish that all our old friends grew old as gracefully and meetly MS this friend of our early days In Hum bold l county and our good wishes are echoed by every old settler in Humboldt and Kossuth. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. The September St. Nicholas is not, like the September Century, an avowedly 'salt-water number," yet many of its pages are redolent of the briny ocean and ts sandy shores. The frontispiece illustrates the lines, " Hey for a bucket, and bey for a spade, " Hey for the silver sea!" from "A Song of the Sea," by Eric Parner, with which the magazine opens. "Pelicantown," described by the natural- st Frank M. Chapman, is a little island on ;he Florida coast whither thousands of pelicans resort annually to build their tests and lay their eggs. The September Century is a salt-water number. In a general sense, this may be said to be apropos of the international interest in the yacht races for the America's cup. The special feature of the magazine is the first of a series of four papers in which Capt. Joshua Slocum narrates, in a liumorous«nd individual style, the story of his successful circumnavigation of the globe, alone, in a forty-foot sloop, the Spriiy. constructed by himself. This unprecedented achievement involved two crossings of the Atlantic, and the rounding of Cape Horn and the Cape of Good Hope. September is the month for fishing and outdoor sports, and is the beginning of the hunting season in Canada and in Maine. Scribner's for September lias a number of articles with an outdoor flavor to them. It opens with an account bf Frederic Irland of what he calls " the finest canoeing coun try in the world." He made a 500-mile journey from Mattawa to the headwaters of the Ottawa and Gatineau rivers, through a region abounding in fish and moose. It has been for centuries and is now the home of the Algonquin Indian. The region through which Mr. Irland trav- elled with Algonquins for guides is the best sportsman's haunt left in America. Tlie Real Party Platform. Sioux City Journal: The Algona UPPER DES MOINES, which is an independent newspaper, without boasting, though withal a good republican news paper, expresses the opinion the political platform plunks " represent only personal views." "Altogether too much importance," it concludes, "is attached to them in campaigns." * The essential part of a political platform is in what everybody knows, who has information sufficient to vote intelligently, is representative of the general tendency and push of the party. The principals of a political party, us of an individual, are not always to be clearly put down on paper. Some think otherwise in dealing with politics, but they can offer no examples that will stand severe scrutiny. The most a platform can dp, as the most the reading of an individual life can do, is to disclose the tendency, and with confidence in thai we must accept the leadership of oui faith. The time comes repeatedly when we must choose between what we have said and what we at all times hac the purpose to do. We do not see things today as we saw them yesterday, and the difference is not in us but in the light. The rapidity with which the scenes shift on the world's stage keeps us dodging about a good deal, do the best we can. But our purpose all the time is to keep out of harm's way to the best of our ability. Therefore the tendency of a political party is worth more than anything that is written in its platform. To those who have discernment this tendency is not difficult to discover. If suspicion is to be employed, a sea is embarked upon where no anchor is available. As we have confidence in the integrity of men, so we must have confidence in the integrity of the associations of men, if our co-operation is to be extended in any way to our credit or to the benefit of others. In short, the material thing in a political party, as the material thing in the individual, is character. Character determines tendency, and everything depends on whether we tend toward what is right or whether we tend toward what is wrong. The life is the real platform, upon which we may all with the moat safety and to best advantage stand. Old Times Recalled. Wm. H. Ingham writes from Seattle and tells of a curious meeting: " When we were taking lunch in a Seattle restaurant an elderly lady seated herself opposite at our table and in a conversation, after finding out that we came from Algona, told us that she knew a Mr, Smith who was quartermaster of the Northern Border Brigade and that her husband was Capt. White of Com pany B. When I told her that I was captain of Company A, we at once became well acquainted, as she called me by name. It is 36 years since his company was mustered out and we lost track of him soon after, as he went to New Orleans with one of the regiments. He is now in Seattle, and we called on him and had a good time reviewing the olden times and recalling many incidents of our life on the border. Time has dealt very kindly with the captain, as he has changed but slightly since we parted with him at Correotionville in 1863." _ The News at I^one Uook, LONE ROOK, Sept. 4.— The .construction train will be working in town by ;omorrow evening. The track is being .aid at the rate of about a mile and a per day. The mile are much heavier than those in use between Algona and Burl, G. S. Angus and wife are home again ifter a month's trip through Minnesota )y team. Mike Shea and Dan Lynch are the atest speculators in Minnesota land. The creamery checks are finally out and are at the bank for distribution. B, Fv Angus and wife are the happy of a pair of twins since Sunday. FOR time loans on real t Kossuth County State estate apply THE BATTLE OF SAN JUAN. The Man Who Fired the first Shot Was Wounded Eight Times. On Thursday, Sept. 21, Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World will exhibit in Algona. This organization is well known In this city, and the public is well aware of the fact that what Messrs. Cody and Salisbury promise they always carry out. This season the exhibition excels anything that they have yet attempted in the way of reproducing historical feats, one of tbe newest being a vivid production of the battle of San Juan, in which the entire company of 600 persons will participate. In order that everything connected with the production may be as nearly correct as possible there has been engaged a number of the celebrated Roosevelt Rough Riders, who were in the thickest of the battle. Special scenery has been prepared and a miniature hill built from photographs taken of the memorial spot. Among the Rough Riders who will participate in the event are Sergt. Gerald A. Webb, who was badly injured; Bill Cline and Walter M. Cook, the latter a scout, who also carry the marks of the bullets fired by the Spaniards; Wm. McGinty, who is spolsen of by Col. Roosevelt us a brave fighter and who was wound ed, in addition to Tom Isbei, who has the distinction of having fired the first shot, and who received in return' eight bullets, all of which made their marks on different parts of his body. Other members, many of-vvhom were carried from the field, are included in this detachment, all of whom served under command of Col. Roosevelt. There will be from the Philippine islands men and women who have their own manners in riding; a group of male and female Hawaiians, who are recognized as experts on the horse, and the female members of this contingent introduce the religious dance of their country, which is very unique. There will be Cowboys, Arabs, Mexicans, German and English soldiers, Cossacks, Gauchos, and other riders from different nations, along with Johnny Bakei and Annie Oakley, who will give exhibitions in shooting at objects, and the only Buffalo Bill.

PHIL. 0. HANNA AT WATERLOO. Says'the Porto Ulcans Want Their Government Americanized. Waterloo, Sept. 2.—Phil. C. Hanna, United States commissioner, formerly consul of Porto Rico, is visiting his boyhood home here. Mr. Hanna says the general condition of affairs on the island is very promising. He says the present government is not what the people there want nor what the American people would like to give them, but it is probably thje best that could be devised for immediate emergency until legislation could be secured, The old system of Spanish courts is still in existence, but is not satisfactory. The people want the government entirely Americanized. They are eager to become America citizens in fullest sense. Mr. Hanna left the island before the recent storm devastated it. WILL VISIT ALGQNA. the A Good Time to Talk " Y" to Hallway CommlBwionera. The railroad commissioners will come to Algona on Tuesday, Sept. 19, to locate depot grounds for the Iowa Central company. If there has been any doubts about certain railroad plans the request that the railroad commissioners visit Algona for the purpose named should do much toward removing them. A Normal School Proposal. J. C. Welliver says in his Des Moines letter: Denison, Algona, LeMars, Red Oak',' Shemuidoah, Corning, Afton, Washington, Pairfield and a number of other towns are interesting themselves in the hope of getting schools. The favorite proposal is to build one new institution in the northwest, one in the southwest, and one in the southeast corner of the state, This with the Cedar Palls college already in the northeast would give one to each quarter of the state. T -,j Coast Is Prosperous. Mrs. Win. H. Ingham writes from Seattle. Among other things is this item about the prospects on the Sound: A lady who was a resident for many years of Sioux City but who for the past nine years has been a resident o{ Seattle, surprised us a little when she said; "J have made the prediction that there will be two great cities ib America in the future, New York and Seattle." A friend said to her: "What about San Francisco and Chicago?" " Well," she said, " there will be lartfs cities, but Seattle and New York will be in America what London and Paris are in Europe." Seattle now has a population of over 60,000, It is well to see people so hopeful, and we find the business outlook very much more encouraging in the cities we have Been on Puget Sound than in former years Eastern people and eastern capital are coming to the coast. Want Judges to Alternate. Estherville Democrat: A petition is being circulated, and generally signed by members of the local bar, to alternate the two judges of the district court. The way it is arranged now Judge Helsell only holds one term of court here in a year. The petition will be sent to all the towns in the district and it is believed will be almost unanimously signed by members of the bar, and the request granted. Hottest Week of the Year. State report: The past week was the hottest of the season, with the greatest amount of sunshine and the lowest percentage of humidity. At the central station the mean temperature was 78 degrees, and the average daily excess was over 10 degrees. Showers were reported in the north central and north- oast districts, hut no rain fell in the larger part of the state. Should Kill the Weeds. West Bend Journal: The editor of this paper made a trip up through eastern Palo Alto and western Kossutb counties Tuesday, nnd could not help but notice that very little attention has been paid to the law requiring the. weeds to be mowedalong the highways. This law was passed in the interests of land owners and it will pay every farmer to see that it is enforced. PEKSONAL MOVEMENTS, Don Stearns of Fort Dodge visited Fred Clarke last week. They were school mates at Orchard Lake. Miss Jean Patterson will go to Minneapolis to take a two years' teacher's course in the state university. Old friends of Mrs. Lizzie B.
