Onto Bella Spoke to a Small House In Algona Last Night—Gen* erat Political Notes. J. ti. Sammis met with a great reception at Lu Verne last night and gave a great speech. The band was out, special songs were given by Lu- Verne's singers, and the school house, which holds abig audience, was jammed and people stood In all parts of the room. Mr. Sum nils spoke for nearly two hours without notes of any kind, and with force and eloquence, outlined the issues. The Lu Verne people are enthusiastic over the meeting and Mr. Sammis is added to the list of speakers who can be sure of a hearty reception when he comes to Kossuth. If a man is in love that's his business; if n girl i is in love that's her business;* but if they are engaged to be married it's OUR BUSINESS to sell* the engagement ring and make the] bride a present.

Ho had about the same attendance that Weaver and White did. Ho was very hoarse and made himself heard with difficulty, and the general comment is that ho disappointed his audience. Sells was the conservative candidate for the democratic nomination for • governor, and was beaten by White. Uolllver nt 1'Uoukn. Topic: Dolliver Is a master of his art. Nature has endowed him with every gift that goes to the making of a great orator. His physical perfection, delightful originality of thought, his calm repose and freedom from effort with which he goes to the height of sentiment make him a marvelous speaker. Lew O-YVOUB In All Hlulit. Burt Monitor: Lew Owens, our next sheriff, has buen doing all ho can for the success of the republican ticket this fall, and It Is said that at the Shaw meeting at Bancroft he responded to a call and made a stump speech that was heartily applauded. He is all right. KoMHiitli la Alive. Vinton Eagle: They must be having a red-hot campaign In Kossuth county. On the part of the republicans Congressman Cousins opened the campaign. He has been followed by Gov. Shaw, who made two speeches In the county. He will be followed by Dolliver, who makes three speeches. He Is to be followed by Sammlns, B. F. Clayton, and A. B. Cummins. The democrats have furnished Gen. Weaver and White, and Sells is to speak at Algona Oct. 31. Benton county so far has been furnished with but one speaker, Rankin at Belle Plaine, by the republican committee, and but one by the democratic committee. Gardner C'owleH oil the Stump. Wesley News: Mr. Cowles made a few appropriate and pointed remarks, showing powers of oratory as well as an abundance of sound judgment, for which he is noted. 1$. P. Clayton at Lodyurd. B. F. Clayton, president of the national farmers' congress, and a strong speaker, will discuss the issues at Ledyard tonight for the republicans. He is one of the ablest speakers In the country. Look Out for Uoorbacks. The constant rumor that the democrats are going to spring something between now and election day and make a sweeping canvas of the county warrants the republicans in being on their guard. No attention should be paid to any story that is put into circulation too late to be met and answered. THE UPPEB DES MOINES does not believe that any such resort will be made by the friends of Mr. Smith and Mr. Chrlstensen. But if it is it should be squelched without hesitation. The mere fact that nothing has been said up to the going to press of the republican papers for the last time before election, shows that there is nothing that will stand investigation that can be said, Political Notes. Vote the straight ticket. The polls will be open Tuesday from 8 to 6 o'clock. Look out for all stories that are started at the last minute. A. B. Cummins has been laid up with a sore throat and cannot speak at Wesley. E. B. Butler and L. J. Dickinson speak in Eagle township tomorrow evening. J. C. Welliver, the Des Moines Leader man, guesses Gov. Shaw's majority in Iowa at 60,000. ' Every man owes it to the government in which he lives to get out and vote on election day. A man who fails to vote invites disaster and oppression. The Keokuk Gate City says it is remarkable what admiration Cato Sells and Fre(l, White have for Abraham Lincoln, and It took them forty years to find it out. There is not one of the democrats who are asking republicans to vote for democratic candidates who would vote for republican candidates under the same circumstances, The vote for " Gojdea RwJe" Toledo, Ohio, for governor tbe result in. th.atf state very u He is tbe 90918,1111 njayer of is running Indeneudwk H$ 18 WQQ to Naah, the republican candidate, and McLean, the democratic, have hard work to figure what effect Jones* vote will have. Iowa is the only state west of the Mississippi that holds an important election. The result In Iowa will be watched by the whole country. It will test the sentiment of the middle west us to the McKlnley administration. Supt. Van Erdewyk and the democratic candidate for state superintend* ent,P. B. Hoist of Boone, spoke to a good audience at Fenton Monday evening. Supt. Van Erdewyk says that Mr. Hoist mnde a very able address, chiefly on imperialism. If the voters of Johnson county are wise they will elect C. S. Kanck to the senate by a practically unanimous vote. He has been one of the,most Influential friends the university has had in the legislature and his experience now makes him invaluable. Johnson county ought to act with an eye to business. One Who Knows. Eminotsburg' Reporter: Carl Selch- oll, who was a corporal in the 13th Minnesota regiment, was tendered a royal reception when he returned home on Thursday of last week. While at Manila Carl's company was on provost duty In the city and naturally came in contact with the natives to n. great extent. He says that the Filipinos are treacherous, never fight In the open, and lire only half civilized. His statement does not tally with Gen. Weaver's, but Carl has spunt a year among the Filipinos, while Weaver has not. The former knows what he is talking about and the latter speaks for political effect. Carl also says that If the American troops were withdrawn the Islands wouia be at once the scone of pillage and insurrection, for in his estimation the natives are not capable of self-government and no one who Is acquainted with the situation will be deceived for a minute. One by one the false statements of the Aguinaldoites In this country are revealed by the boys in blue who return from the far east from fighting the battle for enlightenment, progress, civilization, and the supremacy of a republican form of government in this world.

The Happy Couple Arc ut Homo In the Cooke Coltuuo-CoiiKrutulatod by Many Friends. Mr. and Mrs. G. P. Peek arrived from Minneapolis Friday afternoon, and are already at home In Mrs. E. L. Cooke's cottage and enjoying the pleasures of housekeeping 1 . The wedding occurred Wednesday evening. The Minneapolis Tribune says: Miss Estelle Maudo Johnson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Johnson, was married last evening at 8 o'clock to Augustus P. Peek, Algona, Iowa, at the home of the hrlde's parents, 301 Seventh street south. The dfite of the marriage was originally sot for Sept. 18, but It was postponed on account of the illness of Mr. Peek. Rev. Pleasant Hunter performed the ceremony in the presence of 60 friends and relatives of the bride and bridegroom. Mrs. C. R. Wunderlioh, sister of the bride, played the Lohengrin wedding march as a processional. Little Cecil Utter, the flower girl, was dressed all in white, and carried a basket of white roses, She preceded the bride, who was met at an orlentally- draped archway at the foot of the stairs by the bridegroom, Miss Johnson's gown was of white Paris muslin, trimmed with satin ribbon and Valenciennes laco. She carried bride roses. After the service there was a reception for the Immediate friends, and refreshments were served. The dining room was decorated In white and pink, with a cut glass howl of chrysanthemums In the center of the table. The sideboard was massed with carnations and stnilax. The mantels were banked with palms and overhanging ferns. Smtltvx garlanded the chandeliers. Mr. and Mrs. Peek will take a wedding trip, They will make their home in Algona, Iowa, where Mr. Peek is in the real estate business. President Robt. J. Kimball and a party of officials ot the Iowa Central were in Algona a few hours Thursday afternoon. They came in on a special from St. Benedict about 4:30 o'clock and part of them returned on the special a few hours later, while President Kimball took the 6:30 Milwaukee traiti for the oast. The party consisted of E. E. Chase, G. E. Talntor, J. E. Knapp and Albert Lucius, directors of the company, Acting General Manager J. N. Tlttemore, General Superintendent C. W. Huntlngton, General Solicitor G. W. Seevers, Roadmaster Sheely and Chief Engineer E. C. Maoy. Geo. C. % Call, Gardner Cowles, C. C. Chubb and others met the party at the Iowa Central depot site with carriages and took them about Algona. President Kimball and the New- York men with him were well pleased with the Algona extension and were particularly well pleased with Algona. They looked over the map carefully while hero with a view to finding a possible route west, and It is not at all unlikely that they will build to Okobojl in the spring. The only reason they have not built before has been because the Iowa Centrill has not been a very profitable investment, but now it is paying a good return. The earnings, President Kimball says, both gross and. net, have boon greater the past few months than ever in the company's history. Mr. Knapp, who is president of one of the biggest coal companies in the United States, expressed himself highly pleased with the road, with the now line, and with this whole territory. The whole party regretted that the short visit prevented them from accepting an Invitation to banquet, but President Kimball said they would be out again la a year probably, and then if everything seemed to warrant celebrating, they would be happy to meet the people. The Local Time Card. A temporary time card is out for the trains on the Iowa Central. It will continue until the road is ballasted so that better time can be made, 30 days probably. Then Mr. Hunlington says we will have two passenger trains'a day each way. They will go east at 6 o'clock In the morning and at 5 o'clock in the afternoon, and arrive from the east at 2 o'clock and lOo'olook p. m. President Kimball says a contract has been signed by which the Iowa Central trains will run Into Chicago over the Santa Fe tracks, so we shall have in the end through Chicago service. , The time card now oat Is as follows: Going east— Pas.
