On account of the distance to New York, people here at home have failed to realize what H sensation Goo. F. Holloways's diving horses have been creating, and Mr. Hollo way is somewhat of a prophet without honor in his own country. THE UPPER DES MOINES this week republishea a few of the many press notices that have appeared In leading pit porn of the oast, which will give a hint of what he lias done to ad- vorliHo Kossulh, and of the really meritorious attraction he has furnished. It is moved to do this by the arrival of a magnificent gold medal sent to it by the horsemen of New York to be presented to Mr. Hollovvny as a token of their esteem. It Is a inudul worth $200, beautifully engraved, and sent out by the rich admirers of horseflesh In the city. What makes Mr. Hollowav's diving horses such an attraction to real horsemen is the enjoyment they get out of the diving, A. whip is never used near them and Mr. Holloway offers at each performance 8100 that'they will if turned loose walk up ami dive of their own accord. It is certainly remarkable that two horses should climb to a platform 27 foot above tho water and jump olf as though they on- joyed tho sport. Mr. Holloway expects to go to England with his horses, and "there they will attract even more attention than they have in this country. They aro an absolutely unique attraction,' Carver lias what he calls diving horses but they have to be whipped to it and they only go a few feet. The story told in the Now York Sun is not wholly true, about the discovery of the diving propensities of the horses. But it was from a bank of the river near Bancroft that they first dived nnd from seeing them Mr. Holloway got the idea of training them. Everybody in Bancroft discouraged him but Mrs. Holloway. She had faith that the horses would come to something. As usual the woman was right. Mr. Ilollowuy Tolls About Them. In a long report tho New York Sun tolls the following story, which Mr. Holloway says is part fiction and part fact: The owner of tho animals, George P. Holloway, tells an interesting story of how he became aware of their high diving proclivities. He said to a reporter: " When King and Queen were small colts they were kept in one pasture and their mothers in another. A river and a high bluff intervened and it was considered that no animal could get from one pasture to another, so no fence was built between. The colts had not been in the pasture many days before I found them one morning in the lower pasture with their mothers, It was such a purale to me as to how they got there that I decided to watch King and Queen one night. I found that the colts jumped from the high bluffs into the river bolow and swam across. " The marvelous jumping of the two horses resulted in my conceiving the the idea of utilizing them in the performance they are now being used for. I took the two colts in hand and began to train'them in jumping from short distances. The two horses showed considerable aptitude for this class of work and on striking the water would swim around for awhile and then make for the nearest landing place. " The height of the jump was gradually increased, and the most remarkable thing about the performance was that the horses came to like it, and on more than one occasion when the door of their stable had been left open they escaped from their loose boxes and mounted the chutes and took the dive on their own accord. '• No whip has ever been used on the horses. The training of them for this performance has all been done by kindness. I secured this high degree of animal intelligence by kindness and words of encouragement to the horses." Some New York Press Notices. World: Professor Holloway's world famous high diving horses, now at Captain Boyton's chute, Coney Island, take the prize for the highest novelty in the way of entertainment in the United States. Professor Holloway's diving horses are really wonderful horses, and their performance is at once graceful and amazing. Herald: It remains to Capt. Paul Boy ton to present to the eastern public the greatest attraction in this' or any other country. Professor Holloway's high diving horses stand unrivalled as a legitimate amusement attraction. Press: No act was ever presented at Coney Island that drew such thunders of applause. Evening Telegram: Half an hour before the dive you could notget standing room in the grounds. The neigh' boring fences and house tops in the vicinity were blftok with struggling humanity. Seeu lu IMUHtaeJpWa. Press: Professor Holloway'e diving horses deserve first place io the am user m,ent world. Their exhiWWoji ling, interesting and Instructive. Record: UnquesHpnably the, eet ftot before the public tod performance is at once original, sensational and novel. Inquirer: The palm of superiority must be conceded to Professor Hollo i way's high diving horses. Nothing like it has ever baen witnessed here before. Times: It must be seen to be appreciated. The degree of intelligence displayed by the diving horses is remarkable and Professor Hotloway is to be congratulated upon the possession of such animnls. Other Notices. Brooklyn Eagle: The visitors to Coney Island seem mad over the diving horses. Tens of thousands are present at every preformance. On Sunday morning the sale of tickets had to be stopped at the chutes. Brooklyn Star: Mr. H. M. Kennedy, General Passenger Agent of the Brook- Heights System, says that since the famous high diving horses have been performing at the Chutes the passenger, traffic to Coney Island has Increased fully 40 per cent. This means a few thousand nnd no mistake. Jersey City News: These marvelous animals aro now at the chutes, Coney Island, where they aro 'drawing immense crowds.

Trusts are economizers, say some; down with trusts, they are demoralizing to the pubr lie interests, say others. Almost every trust in,operation is being criticised one way or another. But there is one trust in existence which no one can criticise (unless it is trusts themselves) a combination of the capital and brains of nine men (8 managers and i buyer) who operate to break down trusts' prices and give what is gained thereby to consumers, thus easily find still l<?ay A Splendid AucUcnco-Gov. Sha\v td Speak In tho County Frtclsy-^ Political Notes, The opera house was filled for Con* gressnmn Robt. G. Cousins' opening speech of the campaign. It was not particularly a town audience, but was made up mainly of farmers from the surrounding country and delegations from neighboring towns. It was a splendid audience, the best, Mr. Cou- Bins says, he had ever met at an opening meeting. It was an enthusiastic audience, applauding the speaker at every turn. Mr. Cousins opened with 20 minutes on our present Industrial prosperity. Then he spent a half hour on trusts The remaining hour and a half he put into an ex liaustivo discussion of the various phrases of tha Philippine question. He had made special preparation for this part of his speech, ransacking the public documents in the war department, authorities on international law, and the history of other additions of territory In years past. He absolutely riddled Fred White's claim, put forth ut Davenport, that the allegiance of tho Filipinos was not transferred when the title to the islands was acquired, quoting at some length from Jas, K. Polk and other democratic authorities. He amused the audience greatly by reading from , speeches made in 1803 against the Louisiana purchase, the language being almost identical with that now used by the anti-expansionists. Ho cut into that plank of the democratic platform which talks about the war being brought about by an alliance with England with merciless sarcasm, and closed an eloquent speech with a rousing appeal for Americans to stand by America. This wns Mr. Cousins first visit to Kossuth and his coming was looked forward to with Interest. He fully sustained his splendid reputation as an orator, and he started the republican campaign off with fire and enthusiasm. Gov. Shiiw Comes ITfldny. Gov. Shaw will speak In Germanla Friday afternoon of this week. Tn the evening he will speak in Bancroft. He comes from Webster City Friday morning and will be taken to Germania by team. A big tent has been secured, the Bancroft band has been engaged, and Germania intends to do honor to the occasion. In the evening the governor will speak in the Jefferson Hall in Bancroft. Kossuth is the only county in the state that gets two meetings from the governor, as he is in great demand. He is making one of the best speeches of the season and the north end is in luck. Oolllvor In KooButh. Congressman Dolliver will speak in SweaCitya week from next Monday evening, Oct. 23. He will speak in Burt Tuesday afternoon. He will speak in Ti- tonjfii Tuesday evening, Oct. 24. All ofThem will be rousing meetings. Hrynii In Kmiuotsburtf. Wra. Jennings Bryan will speak in in Emmetsburg tomorrow evening.
