Keep History Straight. Walter Well roan, in complimenting Iowa for tbe magnificent majority this year, take* pain* to rehearse a favorite dander on the Iowa delegation at tbe St. Loots convention In 1896. He says: "Threeyears ago at the St. Lonia national republican convention, it was the state of Iowa Which gave more trouble than aajr other delegation from a northern state when the gold question was raised. The Iowa republican leaden shied at that word. They were as afraid of it aa if it carried contagion. They predicted that their state would go over to the enemy if it were forced upon them. This was before they had thought modi of it. Bat when the necessity arose not only the leaders but the masses of the party in the state began to stody tbe question of tbe gold standard." This is sheer poppycock, but it is, nevertheless, popular with a lot of Iowa papers, which singularly enongh have never paid the Iowa delegation at St. Louie tbe honor that it earned and fully deserved. Kobisaat of Chicago came to tbe St. Louis convention with a resolution in favor of gold and ignoring tbe standing pledge of tbe republican party to use its best efforts to restore bimetallism. It was due to tbe Iowa delegation that this resolution was amended, that tbe lime-honored republican position was reaffirmed, and that tbe bottom was knocked out of tbe free silver campaign. The pledge tbe Iowa delegation secured, President Me* Kinley faithfully fulfilled, and every real bimetallist in tbe United States remains a republican. No one today can tell wbat would have happened in 1896 if the Iowa delegation bad weakly joined in the craze at St. Louis in favor of abruptly changing front on tbe silver question. It is hardly worth while to notice tbe suggestion that after a while the Iowa republicans "began to study the gold standard." Some of the Iowa republicans Mr. Wellman refers to helped to establish the gold standard about tbe time he was born Thanks'largely to Senator Allison, Mr. Wellman bas grown up under tbe gold standard, and if be first discovered that fact in 1896 there is no especial reason why be should advertise bis previous ignorance by claiming that everybody else found it out at tbe same time. Mr. Wellman and his Iowa endorsers should remember that there bas not a bit of money legislation been pat on tbe statute books since 1896, and that our monetary laws are exactly as they have been for the last quarter of a. century, and that the same gold basis we are nowon we have been on eince the republican party was born. HEWS AHD OQMMEHT. Vice-President Hobart died yesterday. The Cedar Rapids Republican cites tbe incomes of neighboring state univer cities as follows: University of Minnesota, 1351,740; University of Wisconsin, £400,000; University of Illinois, 1354,982; University of Missouri, 1183,000; University of Nebraska, $2*7,000: University of Michigan, f&il,572; University of Iowa, f!50,036. It comments on these figures: " It takes money to make a school. If Iowa is not willing to spend as much money as Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska and Michigan, it stands to reason that her university can not compete with tbe universities of these more liberal states." It seems to be conceded that Bernard Murphy of the Vinton Eagle will be chosen state printer if the office is not abolished by tbe legislature. He is one of tbe most deserving republicans in Iowa, and if he can afford to pull up stakes and go to Des Moines be oagbt to win. And now the people who gave Dewey a house are mad because he bas deeded it to bis millionaire ' wife. Somehow even Dewey is not an ideal hero. Col. Henderson has chosen Julien Richards of Waterloo as his private secretary at Washington. Mr. Richards is one of tbe best known newspaper correspondents in tbe west, has had lots of training for bis new work, and will be popular with everybody. Mahlon Head of Jefferson and P. J. Blake of Fort Dodge are both candidates for speaker of the coming house at Des Moines. The Tenth district will be on band, Chas, W. Sarchett of Algona has writ.ten a book on Imperialism. ' It is well written and presents tbe fears and buga boes of tbe aijtis in -a forcible manner. The author, we fear, takes too gloomy a view of tbe situation in God's universe. We have confidence that tbe future is several shades brighter than be predicts, and we hope that be will be spared to see that the new generation is equal to the job it has on band. It is a curious coincidence tbat tbe book is issued just as tHe American people by* decisive majorities have decided to take the course he oondemug. >. The 4*PUC> JS*w £»»*•«.

West Bend Journal: The democratic incumbent of tbe treasurer's office in Kossuth will contest the election o his opponent, John Ward of Wesley Ward bas 17 majority. That democrat should read a lesson Irom Palo Alto county, where the democratic incum bent, elected by but eight votes, is not contested by bis republican opponent That fellow" is somewhat of wbat tbej they spell b-o-g. Eagle Grove Times-Gazette: The Algona UPPER DES MOINES contain? tbe information that H. G.
