ESTABLISHED 1865. DOLLIVER ON OtJR MONEY His Now Noted Speech in Favor of *th Gold Standard Bill. Interruptions by Democrats Are Ans wered by the Keen "Wit of Onf Congressman. The following selections from Dolli ver's currency speech in congress tha was the feature of the discussion wil Interest his constiluents in Kossuth They are taken from the Congressiona Becord: In 1896 Mr. Bryan said in a score ol speeches, preserved In this curious yolume, that if the gold slandard was fastened upon the country, the price o everything would go down and keep going down under a law as inexorable as the law of gravitation. "Do you think we have reached the end of the gold standard?"— He cried, addressing the people ol Baltimore, September 19— "There is no end. Do you think we have drained the cup of sorrow lo its dregs? No, my friends, you cannot seta limit to financial depression and hard times." Is there a man on this floor today, regardless of his politics, who would stand up here and say publicly that in making these stalements Mr. Bryan knew what he was talking about? [Laughter and applause on the republican side.] If there is I would like to have him stand up. [Afler a pause.] I now call the attention of the country to the fact that the democratic party in this house, has become so bewildered by the industrial and commercial activity which surround us that not one of his followers will stand up here and say that on a question which goes to the heart of this controversy Mr. Bryan had sufficient wisdom to guide Ihe footsteps of those less enlightened than himself. [Laughter and applause on the republican side.] He said wages would come down and the working people of the United States be left without employment. Was he right about that? When he spoke there were a good many in this country in lhat condition, and my heart always wen I out in sympathy to these industrious millions and their helpless families. I expect we had as much sympathy as you folks had, even though wedid'nt coincide with your scheme for restoring wages and happiness. Let us all rejoice that after less than Ihree years of republican administration there is not an industrious man out of employment —not one in the United States. Not only are the great centers of industry and commerce busy, but a revival has taken place even in the remote villages and rural dlstricls. It may interest you to know that since the last session of this house I have become a farmer. [Laughter.] Last ; summer when I wanted to build a barn I walked all over a town of 12,000 people trying to gel somebody to put a foundation under it, and I declare to you that I had finally to put it in myself. [Laughter.] Mr. Barbara. Is the barn still standing? Mr. Dolliver. It is, and In every respect a good job. If you have kept your eye on the newspapers, you have noticed thai the wages of labor are everywhere going up, adding millions of dollars to the comfort of the humble homes of the land; so that when Mr. Bryan predicted a still further loss of employment and a still further decline in wages the whole world now knows that he was wrong and not right. I do not think any Ihe less of him personally because his speeches have not come out true. When a man tells me it is going to rain and it turns out to be a sunshiny day, I do not have any less respect for his moral character. [Langhter] But when a man predicts dry weather and plenteous showers fall instead, I insist thai, unless he expects to hear a personal appllcalion of Ihe proverb by which the mental outfit of such a one Is described, he should at least get in out of the rain. [Laughter.] Mr. Bryan in 1896 claimed that the restoralion of prosperity in the United States was entirely impossible except under his general management, and I here publicly convict him, by the open hook of universal experience, of wholesale and relail dealing in misforlunes that never come. He told the multitudes, which had a right to look to him for wisdom and guidance that the design of the friends of the gold standard was to put it in the power of a few bankers to corner the money of the world. "Talk about monopolies, talk about Irusts"— He said, speaking in this city on the centennial of Washington's Farewell Address— " my friends, they propose to establish the naost gigantic trust af all—a money trust—and let a few men who hold It all deal it out at such price as they will to all the othersof the 70,000,000 American people". During General Harrison's administration, when it was comparatively easy to get into debt, I took advantage of the fair sailing which seemed to be before us and bought as much land as I could borrow money to make a pay- Went on. Everyone seemed to be will- Ing to lend money; they even stopped We on the street and asked me if I could not use a little money; and the wost embarrassing thing I had to con- •WQ with during the campaign of 1896 WftS that these fallows al.l wanted to see We, I s e nt down word that I was -not i«< ILaughter.f They said that they would wait.

Not long aeo I bought a piece of land which had raorlgnge of $6,000, drawn al Ihe rate of interest which prevailed in 1895 and having a reservation of the right to pay it in whole or in purl on any Inter est day. When the April interes iitur 3d " e 'his year I said to myself Would not it be a good idea for you " show your faith in republican pre .. b . lons r You told your conslituenls that if the standard of value wna made secure public and private credit would bestrenglhenedand that the Interesl on money, instead of going up, would go down. Would it not be a good thing to see whether it will operate in your own case or not?" I did not have the money and did not know where I would be able to get it, but I thought I would see whether the republican plat- orm was worth anything to me, and so svhen I wrote to the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance company of Milwaukee, inclosing a draft for the interest due April 1, I added this postscript: 'P. S.—Unless It is agreeable to your oinpany to reduce the rate of interest on these notes to five per cent., I will 'eel obliged to pay them." [Laughter.] Three days afterwards I got a letter "rom Ihe manager of the company say- ng that my lelter had been referred to .he committee on finance, and in accordance with its report, " it is etitire- y agreeable to our company to reduce jhe rate on your notes to 5 per cent., provided you will waive the righl lo )Hy Ihem before they are due." Laughter.] I want to say to you, bo.ys, thai I lave had a good many hard knocks in my time and a good many hand-to-hand jonflicts with trouble; I have heard you peak about the conspiracies of Wall treet and Lombard streel until I have ometimes felt like sharing your fears or the future, and I tell you now thai never in my life, before I got lhat etter, felt that I had the money power if Europe and America on the dead un. [Loud laughter.] Mr. Pierce of Tennessee, Does Ihe fentletnan give his experience in lhal )usiness transaction as the rule which governs the republican party? Mr. Dolliver.

[Great aughter on the republican side.] Is here a democrat in this house who has ny scruples against lhat? [Renewed aughter.] In other words, my countrymen, three ears under the administration of Wilam McKinley has taken all of the ter- or oul of Ihe gold standard, nol only or the republican party but for the in- uslrious millions of America. [Ap- lause.] Mr. Sims. I Ihoughl you said we ad Ihe gold standard since 1834. Mr. Dolliver, But we have had sev- ral democratic administrations in the meantime, and I am talking now aboul he effect of Ihe last election and about ur desire and purpose to givo expres- ion in the law to the verdict of the eople taken three years, ago. I say ankly lhat il could not have been one two years ago or one year ago, ul it can be done today by the unanimous vote of Ihe republican members f ihis house, because our pathway has een III up by the experience of the Jnited Slales.

Judge Thomas and His Diamond-O J. Hack Injured—A Collection of Semi-local Notes. A few people in Whittemore are ap parently much excited over the remov al of Dr. Felling to the insane asylum, Even the Champion says: " It was t mistake to take the doctor away while he was in the condition he was. Sunday he was nol expected to live and Monday he was taken on his last ride. Those who gathered at the depot to see him leave saw how wasted he was by sickness, and wondered that he was being taken away while he was so sick. He was not violently insane. It is the belief of many of his frionda that he was simply delirious from his sickness and would have recovered his mind when he got over his sickness. There is much bitter feeling against the commissioners hero." The plain fuels are that the doctor was having a very hard attack of delirium treinens, that while he was weak 3y spells, there were also times when three men couldn't hold him, that he was as crazy as a loon, and that the only thing that could possibly be done was to take him to the asylum. This was perfectly understood by Mrs. Fell- ng, who agreed fully with the opinion of the commissioners. The doctor suf- ered from attacks of angina peotoris, ind he had got so far along in his drunken carouse that his stomach wouldn't hold brandy, and losing its stimulus his heart was very weak. But whether he died on the train or died in Whittemore was not so very important, and the only thing to do was to get him .o some place where he could be managed and controlled in any event. The attempt to work up sympathy 'or Dr. Felling Is very illtimed. He iHd only himself to blame for the ruinous end of his life. With every chance n the world he made a complete failure. A WOHU TO THE AUNTIKS. )r. MOI-HU Speaks Plainly Concerning the Dr. i"eJJlng Case. To the Editor: To correct an erroneous impression that has been spread ,broad I wish to make a few stalements n the columns of j'our paper. I was called to see Dr. Felling about 1 o'clock ,. in. Dec. 18, and found him experi- ncing a severe allack of delirium tremens. I learned from Mrs. Felling and those in attendance that he had jeen violent for about two days, sometimes requiring considerable persua- iou and strength to keep him in Ihe house; lhal for the past six monlhs it md been noticed that he was unable to ixpress his ideas correctly, and at imes he would get so badly mixed up n his talk thai it was hard to under- time] wlml he was trying to tell. I al- o knew thai about a year ago he had an attack of angina pectoris, a peculiar lisease of Ihe heart, which nearly end- d his life at that time. Mrs. Felling lold mo she was worn iul wilh caring for him and she was unable to get him to take any treat- nent or have him properly cared for. We talked over the advisability of ending-him to the insane asylum, and whether or not he would be able to land the trip on account of his heart rouble, and the fact thai now he was unable to keep liquor on bis stomach md would therefore lose its effect. We concluded that there was no more anger of his dying on the train there was if he was lefl al home, and if we ould only gel him lo Ihe asylum there was a good chance of his gelling over is trouble and becoming a useful citi- en. To save any undue exhauslion rom Iransfer and delay in Algona I elephoned Mr. Clarke and Mr. Carr, he other members of the board of inanity, also Sheriff Christensen, who ame over, and after talking wilh Mrs. Celling and the doctor and those in at- endance, came to the conclusion that or the doctor's good and all those con- erned, and after taking into consider- liori Ihe facl that he had a weakened ieart and-might die on the road, that f he remained at home he would cer- ainly die, we would do the best thing iy sending him to the asylum. We did our duty as we consoientlous- y understood it, and we are willing to ave anyone investigale Ihe case. Vhat we don't fully sanction is to have . few old male grandmothers stir up he community into a state of epidemic ysteria when they don't know what hev are talking about, If these same >eople who are so excited over the eath of Dr. Felling will look back a ew years they will find they were oing all they could to drag him down, lacken his name, and send him to the lenitenliary. One of these agitators /ho takes so much interest in the case, nd who boils over at the slightest provocation, was heard to remark as ve took the doctor to the depot, that it was "good enough for the G d ; he ought to have been in the .en long ago." It is quite evident that rom the way this man treated the doc- or when he was alive, his excitement jomes more from an inherent desire to mure somesne than from any love he as for the justice of the case. When . man gets into that condition be is a oil on Ihe fair face of society and his ead is full of pus. W. E. H. MORSE. pr. rjever«»w*'e Mother Dead.

Smith withdrew his contest and admitted Ward's election as county treasurer. All the townships had been counted but Swea, where there was a dispute over a township ticket, bul a hasty running over of the Swea vote showed that the result could not be changed in any event, and so the contest ended. Ward IB 76 votes ahead. Even If all the ballots should be thrown out where a name had been written In and a cross made In the circle at Ihe head of the ticket, but not also In Ihe square In front of the name—which is a close question as the law reads—still Ward would be ahead, exactly how many votes there is some dispute, as the record was kept only informally as to this. Republicans generally will feel gratified at this turn of events. There has been no doubt that" the judges of election were fair and that their count showed the real Intention of the voters of the county. On the other hand no one will feel any ill will towards Mr. Smith for making the contesl, as was his legal right, especially as so much has been learned about how to vote In consequence of il. The conlesl has been worth all It has cost even if the county had to bear the expense Instead of Mr. Smith. The contest over the counly Ireasur- ership opened Wednesday, as announced. The count began with Riverdale as Mr. Smllh had planned, Attorney Sulllyan dismissing his contest on all but the four townships, Riverdale, Prairie, Wesley, and Buffalo. When these were finished, however, the regular order was begun by Attorney Fellows for Mr. Ward. The outcome in Hancock county had prepared both sides for some surprises, and the original grounds for believing that a lot of wrongly marked ballots had been counted were soon lost sight of. By far the smallest cause for Ihrowlng out ballots was marking in the circle on one ticket arid in the square on another. The judges of election had disposed of all of them, and they have cul practically no figure in Ihe contest. There have been four principal reasons why ballots have been thrown out, and it will be of interest to classify them, People who expect to vote next full will do well also to get them clearly in mind: I. By far the larger part of the ballots have been thrown out because a voter has written in a name for some office, usually a township office, and then failed to mark In the square in front of it. This makes the writing an identifying mark, and invalidates the whole ballot. County cornmitteemen will hereafter see to it that the township tickets are printed in. II. The second cause for throwing out ballots is marking in squares where a, blank has been left on the ballot. The democrats had no nominees for surveyor and superlnlendenl, and yel lols of voters marked the squares for these officers just Ihe same. And lots of voters marked the squares where the township should be although no names appeared for the township offices. III. The third principal reason for rejecting ballots was the failure of voters to make a cross. More voters than one would imagine would make one good line and then put in another which did not touch it. The law requires a plain cross, and the lines must actually cross. IV. The fourth cause of trouble was making other marks than a cross. Some made spider webs, some big round dots, some two parallel lines, some a straight line down through the ticket, etc. In each of these cases ibe ballot goes out. A plain cross, with only two lines, is whalis required. The Grant and Portland Cage. In Grant and Portland townships the judges of election either wrote or allowed someone else to write on the blank ballots a whole township ticket. There is no doubt that in so doing they violated the law, although their action does not invalidate the'vote. A judge may write in a name on the ballot at the personal request of the voter, who cannot write or see or who for any other reason calls for help. In Grant the township ticket was written in on the democratic side, and every republican vote would be thrown out, if it counted the same as it would if the voter bad done the writing himself. This fact ought to be made very plain hereafter, that no name must be written on the ballot unless a cross la made in the in -— r office made in the circle at the head of the ticket. Under the general statute this is a legal ballot. But the statute which provides for writing In names says that a cross shall be made in the square la front of the name. The question 10 does the general or special ruleoontrdl, At the opening of the 'Count Lawyer Sullivan took the position tbat the cross in the circle was sufficient, and Lawyer Fellows that it was not. At the close both lawyers had changed sides, and both admit that at best it Is doubtful. The judges sided with Mr* Sullivan and have admitted all ballots having a cross In the circle with a name written In lower down. It was claimed that there are enough of these, If thrown out, to change the result. If Mr. Smith should appeal to the courts this would be his main reliance, The Count by Townships.
