Shaw's speeches In Germania and Bancroft Friday wjll afford the republicans of the north end of the county a fare opportunity to heat* one of the most effective and most sought after speakers in this campaign. The governor ig making two speeches a day and has been for two weeks, and thus far he has been greeted by very large audiences. His reception in Kossuth will be no less cordial than it has been everywhere in the state. The Campaign Opens. Ten great republican meetings were held in Iowa Saturday. The eleventh, which Congressman Dolliver was to have addressed at Mt. Pleasant, was postponed because of the death of Senator Harlan. With the exception of Senator Burrows of Michigan and Congressman Landls of Indiana/the speakers were Iowa men. The meetings covered eight districts as follows: Second district, West Liberty, J. H. Gear. Third district, Waterloo, D. B. Henderson and J. C. Burrows. Fourth district, Charles City, A. B. Cummins. Fifth district, Marlon, W. B. Allison. Sixth district, Grlnnell, John F. Lacey and Geo. D. Perkins. Seventh district, Des Moines, Charles B. Landis. Seventh district, Indianola, John A. T. Hull. Eighth district, Shenandoah, S. McPherson and W. P. Hepburn. Tenth, Jefferson, Gov. Shaw. Tenth, Algona, R. G. Cousins. The money question, trusts, and expansion were the subjects of discussion, expansion occupying the first place. Congressman Henderson, who has been quoted as an anti-expansionist, voiced the sentiments of all when he said: "Itis beyond my comprehension how any man living under the stars and stripes can say to his army and navy, ' Surrender" while shot and shell are aimed at a flag legally raised over any foot of ground on earth." And Congressman Cousins summed up the debate, in his Algona speech, in saying: "If the president had receded from our responsibilities In the Philippines and had commanded Admiral Dewey to haul down the American flag and sail away, leaving the island of Luzon and the city of Manila to pillage and to the chaos of disorder, these same individuals who are now pining about imperialism and criminal aggression would have called him a coward and a betrayer of his country. As it is, our president has the hearty support of every patriot, and that support is not confined to any one party. It is almost as universal as kealth." Gov. Shaw made one of his masterly arguments on the money question, Senator Allison discussed national finances, trusts, etc. The entire field of this year's political issues was covered, and it is safe to say that abler or more eloquent speeches were never delivered in any campaign anywhere than Iowa men have made on the opening day of the Iowa campaign. Lean did, and this was borne out and strengthened by the broad thought contained in his Inaugural address. He gave ft general outline of the history of the state and of the university, followed by a grand plea tot higher education, for wider university influence, for co-ordination of all Institutions of learning throughout the entire country. He Struck the chord of ultimate progress, and la probably the prophet of a final Integration. The lines he laid down, too, for his new charge, the university of Iowa, are sure to be the beginning of a true renaissance of learning in this state. A TKtrsT has been organized at Webster City which we trust Is founded on trust. It is the combination of the two daily papers, the Tribune and Freeman, both of which have been published at a loss. A stock company has been organized with $30,000 capital. Editor Hunter of the Freeman will attend to editorial matters while Charley Hellen of the Tribune will have charge of the business department. Such men as J. L. Kamrar and D. C. Chase are interested financially in the result. Webster City will now have one paper much better than either of its predecessors, the war that has heretofore divided the town will cease, and many other desirable results will be accomplished. This is an excellent example of the benevolent combination of capital. More than one town in Iowa would be benefitted by a like combination. C. T. HANCOCK is the republican nominee for the senate in Dubuque county. He is popular and may be elected. If he Is Dubuque will be ably represented. THE Dubuque • Telegraph ie after Judge Wade. The judge has been telling them in a speech at Iowa City that the Filipinos are in a state of insurrection and must be subdued. The Telegraph calls the judge's attention to the fact that he helped to get up the democratic state platform and approved the declaration that the Filipinos ought to be free to do as they like. Everybody who had anything to do with that platform seems to be in trouble. J. W. Hinchon's famous "we can't win on it" still lingers about the free silver discussion. THERE is a very noticeable difference between the Courier talking about the rights of the Filipinos to self government and the Courier talking aboutthe rights of the darkeys to self government. The Courier very cautiously still declines to state whether it thinks the darkeys have a right to vote find have their votes counted. article he says of President MacLean: In scholarship, soundness of Judgment, force of character, talent for public speaking, appreciation of his country's history and oi the causes of its development, personal attractiveness and ability to inspire correct ambitions, he appears to meet the standard which his critics had set before them. Regents, faculty, students, elumnl and friends have all been strongly Impressed With his manifest fitness for his position; and it would not be possible for anyone to enter upon a great work under auspices more favorable than those that hover above htm. C. F. Duncombe Is nominated for the legislature In Webster by the democrats. He is John F. Buncombe's eldest son, and a newspaper man of ability. A gentleman by the name of Blake will, however, draw the salary of the Webster county member this winter. Senator Gear made the opening speech at West Liberty Saturday. He pointed out an Interesting fact in the trust discussion: It Is a fact worth noticing tout the state which breed trusts, and under whose favoring laws the most profitable trusts are organized Is the reliable, democratic state of New Jersey. The same Is measurably true of the democratic state of Delaware—and I fall to find on the statute books of any democratic state, except Missouri and Texas, anything which restrains trusts. The War in Africa. It is provable that by this time war has actually broken out between the Boers of South Africa and the English. If it has it will doubtless end in the extermination of the Boer or Dutch republic. The cause of the war is the refusal of the Boers to grant the rights of citizenship to the Ouitlanders, or people who have settled in the country, invested their money in building up its resources, and who are vitally interested in its government. President Kruger, who seema to be a 17th cen- i tury fanatic, with 17th century ideas of civilization, is afraid that he will be voted out of office if the ballot is free. He is evidently ignorant, bigoted, powerful and determined. The Boers are like him, a hardy, vigorous race, good hunters, experts with the rifle, able to endure hardship and afraid of nothing. They will make a determined stand and the war will cost England dearly, but there can be only one outcome. The Boers can neither shut out the progressive part of their own population from an equal share in the government under which they live, nor can they monopolize a large and rich part of the earth to hold it out of the current of the world's progress. They may be plucky and determined, but their pluck is the foolhardy pluck of the bull on the railway track. South Africa will be opened to the world's commerce. IHs a pity that a race with so many admirable qualities as th Boers have not been able to keep abreast with the movements of their own times and make their republic a republic in fact as well as in name. As Seen by an, Outsider. Eugene Schaffter went down Eagle Grove to attend the inauguration oi President MaeLean at the state university, and writes a two column re? port foe Sbe Eagle Grove Daily Times, ^e lays: A« Dr. MaoLeau stood there, erect in the Jonr ecbojastio gown, his face lighted up with an earnestness which showed that for him the occasion was not one of mere perfunctory ceremony, he g ay e one tbeUnpres- sjpuof» u^ined a&4 educated mwhoed.

In them all, however, there is something lacking. Harlan belonged to the generation of Kirkwood and Grimes. He occupied stations us high as either but he will not go down to history with equnl fume. His aims were not adequate to his talents. His old age lacked the dignity that was befitting, just as his prime lacked great purpose. Considering his talents he is less honored than any man Iowa has put into high station. CONGRESSMAN DOLLIVER gave his opening speech at Peterson, Monday. He spoke at Spirit Lake yesterday. NEWS AND COMMENT. Gov. Shaw made just one reference to Fred. White in answering his speech in Davenport last week. Those who read the references made by White to Gov. Shaw will appreciate the crushing effect of the governor's polite but cutting rejoinder. He said: The ethical character of political campaigns has undergone a marked change within the last^quarter of a century, and there Is still room for greater improvement. The older lawyers remember when it was the practice in the courts to abuse the opposite attorney, his client, and his witness. That day is passed. Lawyers of highest standing now refer to their opponents only in terms of greatest respect, and in the introduction of evidence never ask a question which they think is vulnerable to objection. In the presentation of thoir cases one now hears a courteous remark, " I understand your contention is as follows," and the other attorney replies, "yes," or makes any desired correction; and then upon the admitted issue the argument proceeds. The trend is in the same direction politically. The time is not far distant when men of sufficient personal standing to receive the endorsement of a great political party will be exceedingly careful to say nothing and do nothing unbecoming a gentleman, and when political campaigns, like oases tried in court, will be heard upon the high plane of merit. Ex-Gov. Pattison of Pennsylvania, once talked of by the democrats for president, says: My duty as an American citizen commands my support of the country's president at this juncture. When the president said in his Pittsburg speech that the Philippines were just as much American soil as were Texas or Alaska he spoke the truth. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. B. F. Smith and family of Germania have gone to Eagle River, Wis., for a two weeks' visit. Rev. C. G. Wright, son of G. S. Wright of West Bend, has resigned his pulpit at Rolfe to go to Chicago to study. Webster City Freeman: We acknowledge a pleasant call Friday from Rev. F. E. Day, the new Methodist pastor. S. X. Way tells them at Britt that the Wesley mill flour will make sweet cakes without sugar. Britt bought a big installment. Dr. F. L. Taylor, who used to live in Bancroft, has been lecturing to women in the county in the interest of some patent medicine. He went to Oregon from here. Bailey is attributing all J.W. Hinchon's Hoolcie Koolchie reform in Algona to THE UPPER DES MOINES. It was Bro. Hinchon who raided the dancing girl show. Humboldt Independent: Our football team intends to beat the Algona boys in about two weeks. They surely will, as the high school girls are goinjr to yell for them. Game will be held here. Webster City F/eeman: The Northern Towa Baptist association began its tenth annual meeting, in this city yes- day afternoon at the Baptist church. In the evening Wesley Martin made a splendid speech of welcome, which was replied to in a felicitous manner by Rev. Stiles. Cannon, the fat man on exhibition at the county fair, got into trouble "at Fort Dodge. The cause was his violation of the revenue laws, which provide that a fat man of his weight and exterior making a public exhibition should be affixed with a $10 ?-evenue stamp, with which to defray the expense of the Spanish-American war. During the past week the Sioux City Journal and Humboldt Independent have published Laura A, Barsalou's letter to THE UPPER DES MOINES on early-day teaching. Al. Adams says in the Independent: Elsewhere in this issue we give an article quoted from the Algona UPPER DES MOINES regarding the system of teaching, wages and other matters that were an early-day experience in this sew country, 'it is from the pen of one of the highest esteemed ladies of Kossuth county and one who learned the science and 'hardship of Iowa school teaching in the hard school of experience, Mrs. Laura Barsalou. POLITICAL NOTES. Congressman Landis of Indiana said in a brilliant speech at Des Molues Satuv day ; I want to make this prophecy : Ages hence in the distant islands O f the Asiatic sea the BOBS and daughters of the wen who are now native savages, WQrsbiping strange god» out from wood and hewn from atone, will, in the midst of eyery evidence of Christian civilisation, be erecting 'monuments to toe memory of tbejr tjiflir emanoipatdr, their pvoteptor, WiHianj MoKinley. W«. O. Pft^e attended the ipaugu fe . ,E. !4&oLeajj aJt^e W. O. Payne's latest figures on the senatorship are as follows: Gear 3_ sure, doubtful 17; Cummins 66 sure, am doubtful 15. This is the hopeful Cum rnins view of it. F. T. Sparks of Bancroft has been visiting at Burlington. The Begiste says be met and had quite a visit with Senator Gear. He was so impressed bj the meeting that he now w.ears a Gear for senator button. H, H. Bush says in the Garner Sig nal that E. L. Stilson has been to set him and adds: Personally we like Mr Stilson, and would gladly have sup ported him us the regular republican candidate for representative, but as ar independent, No! There is no law against anyone running as an indepen dent, providing he can get his name on the official ballot in the manner pro vided by law, but it is often expensive, and in after years "the old hen is apt to come home to roost" to the vexation and regret of its owner. NEW TRAINS POR ALGONA. A Bin Improvement In the North- weatei-ii Patiseuger Service In Prospect. There is a well defined rumor that in about two weeks, when the train service on the Burt-Sanborn line is settled, two new passenger trains will go through Algona. They will take the place of the accommodation trains south at night and in the morning. If in addition to this change the time card for the night train north can be shortened up a little Algona will be well fixed. It is likely that with the new trains a through Chicago sleeper will go over this line both ways. Shipments at Kangwlm. Record: One Jfanawha elevator received Thursday 66 loads of grain, a shprt tipje previous 86 loads, and consider it a ppar day when they dpn't get from 45 to .60 lot^ds q, 'day.

Scott to Jail—The Hootleeiter Also Arrested. Saturday night at Swea City Sol. Scott stabbed Elmer Peterson. He cut him once across the face, the slit beginning near the eye and passing down through the cheek, which it layed wide open into the mouth. Another slit barely missed the jugular vein. A half dozen cuts scratched his neck and shoulders. Scott was at once arrested and was taken in charge by Deputy Sheriff Miehe, who brought him before Justice Dye, who held him to the charge of an attempt to commit murder in $800 bonds. Mr. -Miene brought him to Algona yesterday and turned him over. The facts so far as they can be learned are that Scott and Peterson's brother had had some trouble about a house Scott had rented of him. During the evening Scott was under the Influence of liquor and he and Elmer Peterson hnd some words, but were separated by Miehe. Later, about 10 o'clock, Elmer called Scott away from the crowd to talk the matter over with him. As they walked away, Scott behind, he suddenly drew a knife and began stabbing. Scott has had GUB.' Larson, who works in the livery barn, arrested for bootlepglng the whiskey he had drunk, and it is said others will testify to getting liquor of Litrson. Lnrson 'will thus get his deserts und SWCH City will get a cleaning up generally, KILLED AT LONE ROOK. A Terrible Accident to a Carpenter Worldlier on the Elevator. Last Thursday Geo. B. Troman- hauser, who was working on the new elevator at Lone Rock, fell 35 feet to the ground. The scaffolding gave way and a fellow workman was lucky in catching on a projecting scantling. Tromanhauser made u desperate effort to save himself, but the board ho caught gave way and he fell, striking on his head. Dr. Walters of Bancroft was called, the Register stiys, and after fixing him up as well as possible with the means at hand they flagged the down train and took him to Burt and thence up on the 11:37 accommodation, and carried him to the Globe hotel. He has not gained consciousness since the fall, and there is little likelihood that he will. His skull was crushed and cracked open by the fall, the brain oozing from the wound. Dr. West was called in consultation with Dr. Walters, and it is in their opinion that his recovery, even temporary, will be little short of a miracle. Tromanhauser is a laborer from Minneapolis, he has some relative in Algona we are told, but did not learn the name. Whether the injured man has a family is not known. TREE PEDDLEES FALL OUT. ated with red, white and blue ribbon, and the table artistically festooned with American Bugs over a beautiful center piece of roses. The favors were miniature American flags, the whole giving a general patriotic effect, in honor of the position occupied by Mrs. Hanna. Mart McCall with the harp, and Miss Amy Hedrick at the piano furnished the music, which was kept up all through the reception. The whole affair was characterized by modest good will, and was keenly enjoyed by everyone present, and will serve to cement even more closely the friendship between Mrs. Simpson and her guest, which dales from their schoolgirl days. _ LIST OF BILLS ALLOWED.

Have One of Their A lien IB Arrested In Aleoiin—The Hoy Tells About McGhee. The McGhee Bros., tree peddlers, lave been delivering a lot of goods in Algona the past week, and evidently laving some trouble of their own. While in town they had a young man named Wa.lsh arrested, charged with 'orging orders. He was one of their solicitors while in Algona, and they say he made out orders on his own look, putting down the names ot responsible parties and sending them in. Walsh now lies in jail awaiting his mother. He will then have a hearing and S. E. McMahon will appear for aim. His story is that McGhee told aim when beginning in a town to make out a few orders and sign good names ;o them as a starter, as that would induce others to buy. His trouble with VlcGhee arises, according to his report, *rom some woman scrape McGhee got nto in Sioux Falls in which be wanted Walsh to testify for him, and Walsh 'efused. Walsh says the McGhees do not own a nursery but buy their goods of other nurseries, many of them at harles City. The McGhees sold lots of trees and plants, and the general impression of the purchasers is that they paid dearly for their whistle. It is doubtful if McGhee appears in Algona against Walsh. If he does, a lively time will be witnessed as Walsh intends to fight. A BIG IMPKOVEMENT. The Hamilton Hardwood Lumber Company Will Build—Foundation to Go In Tills Fall. Messrs. Hamilton and Henry have bought the Thos. Henderson lot just east of J. B. Winkel's shop and will take the Shelley & Pettibone marble works lot. This gives them four fronts and they will this fall get the foundation in for one of the largest lumber warehouses in the state, It will be two stories high, after the style of the Wigwam, and will cover the four lots entirely. The superstructure will go up early in the spring. A Serious Injury. Ralph Hopkins, a farmer living four miles north of Titonka, met with a s rious accident Tuesday. Mr. Hopkins in climbing a tree lost his foothold, fell to the ground, striking' a stake, oursting the scrotum completely. The Topio says in this condition he drove town and received medical aid and treatment. Reception for Mrs. P, C. Hanna. To the Editor: A quite prominent society event was a reception for Mrs. Phillip C, Hanna, wife of the United States consul to Porto Rico, at the home of Mrs, C. O. Simpson last Thursday afternoon. Abput 40 invited guests were preient. The ladies were resolved at the door by little Helen Quarton, aged'four years, and in the >arloi' by Wlesdames Simpson, Hanna Misbaoh.

Clarke Secures a Settlement In Six C'nses-Ono Case In the Supreme Court. The Westenhavers, formerly of Bancroft, had their stock of goods badly damaged in the big Buffalo Center fire a couple of years ago, and the seven insurance companies they had policies with refused to pay what loss they thought they had suffered. Suit was brought against one company, and the case is still in the supreme court. Last week Mr. Clarke went to Forest City to try a second case but the company proposed a compromise and it was accepted.' The other fiye companies will also compromise and Mr. Clarke gets about $3,000 for his client. The case in the supreme court has some interesting features, as it turns on whether sufficient steps were taken to secure arbitration as provided by the code. THE IOWA CENTRAL IS HERE. The Track Layers Are In Algoim—A Depot to Go In at Once. The Iowa Central track layers SALE OF THE CALL ESTATE Last ThttfMftf s Auction Proved an Event in tot Bellini?. AH Went at Good Prices—It is Said Forty New Homes wlii fce one s Result of This Sale. The Call estate auction last Thursday was a remarkable event. In seven hours over $23,000 of town lots, all of them outside property, were Sold. The actual sales In open bidding were $22803, which private sales swell many hundreds of dollars. Such a sale shows the confidence the people have in Algona's boom. In many instances the bidding ran above the sale prices marked on the list, and in nearly every case above the appraised valuations. It was predicted by many present that this sale means 40 new residences next spring. The lots were bought by many who intend to build. Even those who bought for speculation will keep the property moving until it gets into the hands of actual occupants. The sale is a big thing for Algona in this respect. Everything was sold of the estate but the home, which Geo. C. Call buys and the eight acre tract that was offered to the city as a park. It it possible that some time again the city may have an opportunity to secure this tract for a park, and THE UPPER DBS MOINES hopes that our municipal finances may be in shape, if the opportunity offers, to accept. Geo. C. Call conducted the sale in person, and proved a very successful salesman, fie knew the property 'intimately and was able to sell it better thtmany stronger to it. He is much pleased with the sale. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Call spent Sunday in C. Chester Chicago. Mrs. A. Hutchison was a Des Moines visitor last week. Mrs. E. N.
