TAEIFF EEFOEMEES BE VOLT. The current number of Harper's Weekly has an article on "The Democratic Failure" which is a significant proof that as a tarriff reform party the democracy has been sized up as a total failure by the intelligence of the country. Of course it does not matter that the Weekly has along kept its sign out to notify whom it might concern that it was not a democratic journal. It has not, in fact, been such, but what it says in regard to the failure of the democratic party as a party of tariff reform has none the less weight and sanction as a pronouncement of tariff reformers for all that. The Weekly has not been the advocate'of any party for party's sake, but it has been a leading champion of tariff reform for many years, It is probably as clear headed as any paper in this country can be and conscientiously oppose a protective tariff, and it is safe to say that it knows what tariff reform is, and knows what the latest revision of the democratic tariff bill is, What it says, therefore, it says for the thousands of honest but mis' guided tariff reformers in the United States. The Weekly has from time to time given signs of uneasiness in view of the doings of the democratic con-^ gress, but now it is in open revolt, Among other things it says: The democratic party has had its trial and failed. It has been placed in control of the federal government) and it has demonstrated its incapacity to carry out its pledges. Now that it has had an opportunity to remedy the wrongs of MoKinleyism it is at the mercy of the Mc&inieyites in its own ranis, it is impossible, without an ppen revolt jp the patty, for the demo* cratie organization a_s it now exists to pasj a tariff bill that will satisfy the gregt majorities of 1890 and 1%n in fa* ""' Qt a substantial reduction of cus* - "1PU89 taxation.

The weekly plainly declares that be fote the tariff reformers can trust the democratic t>arty again it mast "purge itself of its flagrant contempt of th people," and the only way this can be done, according, to the Weekly, is to "deliberately and expressly efcclud from its leadership and from its mem bership so far as possible, the senators who have stood in the way of the ful filment of itsjpfoinises to the country.' The Weekly is entirely correct in this No party in this country can deliber ately go brfftk upon the principle of protection until it has driven out or blown out its brains. It will do noth Ing of the kind, however* Hill, Gor man, Brice, Smith and their class are indispensable to the democratic party Instead of being driven out they wil: drive out all Who oppose them, anc the tariff reformers and civil service reformers will have to go. A SOUTHERN CAV& A preacher of the doleful name of Cave made a treasonable speech in Richmond, Memorial Day, on the oc casion of the unveiling of a Confederate soldiers' monument, and-it was received with enthusiastic popular approval. He said, referring to the war, that "brute force cannot decide questions of right and wrong," and declared that the world would eventually decide that the south was right and her cause just. He compared the secession soldiers with the men of Concord and Lexington, to the disadvantage of the latter, and said that whatever good may have resulted from the coercion of the south, it wai an "outrage on liberty." How generally prevalent Cave's sentiments may be in the south is a aerious question, but if we are to judge from the universal disregard and nullification of the settlements of the war as concerns the rights of the negro, Cave is a representative southern democrat. We do not believe that such utterances us that quoted indicate that history is going to be repeated, but they ought to inspire n the hearts of the loyal north the determination that the history of the slaveholders' rebellion shall not be forgotten. The Webster City Freeman last weok closed the thirty-fifth year of Its publi- ation. The Freeman is one of the best papers in the state. Charles Buncombe has.,been confirmed as postmaster at Fort Dodge, but It is ;aid that certain charges against him iverc held back by Senator Hill, to whom the charges were sent some time ago by registered mail. The Des Moines Register has an article lieaded: "Northwestern Iowa's Strong Man." It is about the candidacy of A. C. Parker, of Spencer, for Attorney General, and the numerous other "Strong Men" in Northwestern Iowa are disappointed. Tho Emmetsburg Reporter very wisely speaks out with regard to the politics of Mr. Morling, who is mentioned as a candidate for district Judge, and declares that he Is and has been a Republican. That ivas one of the things, certainly, which the district was entitled to know, and there >vas no use making any mystery of it. If Sam Clarke, of the Gate City, does not go to Congress it will not bo because lie is not a smart enough man. Hero is one of his able remarks: It is the Iowa papers that have to fight ihe battle of Iowa republicanism. And it s the Iowa papers that Iowa republicans should support. The Courier clips a bad a piece of >dema- gogism from the Marshalltown Statesman ich among other foolish things asks vho will pay for Jackson's private car to .he republican league convention at Denver, However that matter is settled, it can be depended on tbatGov. Jackson will lot bring a bill of $20,000 for the state to >ay, as Boies did when he made that grund splurge at the Exposition. Last week the senate, by unanimous ote, adopted a resolution declaring against any interference by tho United tates with the affairs of Hawaii and warning all other powers that interference on their part will be regarded as an act anfrieudly to this country. So after all •he talk and bluster tho verdict of condemnation of the policy of Cleveland arid Qresham is literally made unanimous in a body in which his partisans are in thema- wity. The Bancroft Register has something to ay about ambiguous language used by .his paper, but it is very careful not to jome out squarely and state its own posi- ion on the circus ticket question, It does fery well for an editor with a pocket bulg^- ng full of circus tickets to talk about am- )}gu}ty, but others who are less fortunate rj this respect may feel an interest in the iircus ticket question in its wider appli- ation which the editor perhaps little ecks. The Courier last week made a very bad ob of quoting an editorial utterance of .he JREFU2I40.4N, by striking out about half of its one sentence referring to the district ijwdgeship. In order to set at rest all question w4 cavil, once and for all,'the REPUSWOAN will say that it is now, as it ba.8 been, |rom Jh> start, for Mr. Qu,ajtpn, 'fqr Judge, a«4 hopes to see him. nominated,.

MEMORIAL The services of Memorial day we. attended by a larger assembly than usual, one which the Opera House could hotcoine any where neat seating The procession for wed at the G. A, B hall, the Post, the Woman's Belie Corps and the Sons of vetefans being in line, and then marched to the Opera House being led by the Algona Mili tary Band. The preliminary exercise: of the forenoon consisted of a prayei by Rev. Bobt. Baghell, a dirge by the band, a song by the Ladies' Quartette. the flag drill, led by Miss Wallace* anc a brief recitation by Miss Abra Robin son. The address, by Judge H. G Hicks, of Minneapolis, was one of the most thoughtful and profound that has ever been delivered before an Algona audience on such an occasion, The decoration services in the afternoon at the cemetery were well conducted and impressive, and the observance of the day as a whole was a great success. DOLLIVER AT GETTYSBURG. Congressman Dolliver delivered the memorial address at Gettysburg. The Associated Press quotes him as follows It does not belong to this anniversary to keep alive the animosities of the past; yet there can bo no more appropriate day to emphasize the principles which the Union army defended and to publicaly confess the faith which their blood sealed. Unless wo understand the purpose which inspired the armies of the Republic, unless we recognize that the surrender of the rebellion, beside being a parole of prisoners. was also the final defeat of dangerous and discredited ideas, the march of our volunteer regiments reveal only the yells of contending barbarians— a pitable parade of blood. The regret has often been expressed that the statesmen of the civil war made only feeble and ineffective efforts to bring the conflict to" an end by diplomacy. It is recorded that even so pure a patriot as Horace Greeley annoyed Mr. Lincoln for months in order to secure tho National authority which would enable him to negotiate a treaty of peace. The grotesque failure of every such enterprise would seem to show that above tiic ranks of the armies in tho field the National cause had an alliance with the Increasing purpose which runs through the ages. We can now see a perfect mark of God's providence in the total failure of every effort to end the civil war by a treaty. No ambiguous phrases entered n to the final verdict of arms, no undefined rights were left over to be disposed of by general debate. When Grant and Sherman had done with the rebellion, the Davis government had fled like vagrants from their capital. There was absolutely lothing left of it to disturb the hopeiof josterity. Tho old lines of political controversy wore at an end. From that hour, whatever questions may come, whatever problems may arise, whatever issues may shape themselves in the popular mind, whatever grievances may embitteivthc national experience, no man. no party",' no section, may venture to challenge the National authority or to threaten the lational unity. The Union aitmy • not only conquered the rebellion, but it did nlinitcly more. It set tho penalty of death upon every attempt to disturb the established order of society, or to attack ;he lawful administration or civil affairs. tt is a part of the victory of 1865, that the American people shall not be harassed by anarchy, and miliated by disorderly and awl ess social or political agitation, in any form whatever. Tne Union victory was not only a triumph of patriotism. It was also a magnificent vindication of law and order. The government of the United States, in every department of it, is in tho hands of the people of the United States. They can act only through the appointed processes of the law. Whoever, therefore, despises the law and offers aimself as a popular leader to correct abuses and reform the social or industrial situation, without: respect to the fixed jrinciples upon which the Republic is bunded, finds an enemy in every citizen who understand tho meaning of the Con- 'ederate surrender and is faithful to the memory of the Union dead. In these days we hear much of the approaching social •evolution. Sincere and thoughtful men shako their heads and say that we are sleeping on the edge of a volcano, They predict social convulsions in the midst .of which tho whole fabric of the institutions built by our fathers and defended with willing sacrifice by the blood of millions of Drave men shall go down. We can render 10 more faithful tribute to the heroes who :ell on this historic field than to believe ;hat free institutions are worth defending vgainst all enemies. Whoever has it in iis heart to revolutionize the social system, to trample under foot tho law of the and or to impede the just administration of the government will encounter tho same aroused and invincible loyalty which ihirty years ago swept the armies of reason in defeat and confusion from the Borders of Maryland and Pennsylvania, [f this battle field means anything, if ;liese monuments, sot up ty loving hands to preserve the memory of the dead, moan anything, they mean that the American Llepublic has a divine right to live, even f every able bodied man must die— live to silence the accusers of the people— ]ivo to defend life, property, citizenship and the public peace— live to scatter the blessings of civil liberty to the ends of the earth.

Mew Purnp House and Mew Puttip—Me* Gfegbf St, Must have Mains.'—•The Gfadef Vetoed—Other Interests. An adjourned meeting of the city council Was held Saturday night, at which Effiil Johnson was awarded the contract for building an addition to the pump house, to cover the new well, the price being $200. The water committee, of which Nicoulin, Wads worth and Garfleld are the members, Was instructed to look into the business of purchasing & pump for the new well, their report to to be made at the regular monthly meeting. On the question of buying the new grader, which was operated on the streets last week, the council divided, three to four against, and we shall have to get along without it. A petition from McGregor street residents, asking for the extension of the water mains from Dr. McCoy's corner eastward, was handed in by Dr. Garfleld. It had the pledges of fourteen property owners in three blocks to take water, but action was deferred until the next meeting, when it is expected that the question will be carefully ionsidered. The question of an official paper has been up informally for a few weeks, the proposition to publish the official record of the proceedings of the council bringing it to the front. At the present time, and for several years, all ihree papers in the city have been treated as official city papers, and have published the city notices at one third •ates. That would seem to be a fair ar- •angement, and one giving the publication in each of the three papers for .he price that would be charged by one paper, if made the official organ of the council. The effect of recognizing one paper exclusively as official would be ,o throw the report out of the other ,wo, so far as the council could do it, without saving the city a cent. PERSONAL NOTES. A. A.

At the latter point tickets were bought to Sioux City. Mr. Curran came to Algona and swore out a warrant for the young kidnapper, and telegrams were sent which caused his arrest at Alton, from which point Deputy Sheriff Branson brought the boys back last night, and the elder was lodged in jail. Thus endeth the first chapter of the second book of Hawkes. IT IS THE BEST.

There was a large audiefidepreseHt and the exercises proceeded quietly enough until fiear the close of the prafer* whieli was being offered by Elder Glass, when someone yelled "Fire!" When Bro* Glass looked over his specs at the cottclusioH of his prayer the aud* fence had escaped. A good audience was got together in the evening, and Bro. infeham delived his patriotic ora* tion, which was warmly praised by those present. The precipitate manner in which the audience; fled in the morn* ing was due entirely to a misunderstanding, The fire did no damage whatever, being confined to a straw stack in the neighborhood. A Word to Road SUpervlSbfs, For several years our road culverts and small bridges have been a source of constant annoyance. Heretofore pine plank have been used for that purpose, but have not been satisfactory* as they must be replaced about every two years. What is needed is something that when once put in will last. The only way to make a perfect culvert is to use our glazed sewer pipe. These pipe cost but little if any more than a plank culvert, and will last a lifetime. We wish to say that we handle the celebrated Ridgeway sewer pipe, and keep a full stock on hand at Algona. You will save money by calling on us. J. A. HAMIMOK & Co. Try a sack of that lOc. flour.
