Members of Judicial Fourteenth District. EDITOEIAL NOTES. One paper has been heard from which upholds tho state committee in naming the permanent chairman of tho republican convention. It is the Ogden Reporter, and it expresses the opinion that tho commit- tea could do tho work "much better than the rabble." The Reporter's remark probably is from the standpoint of the committee, and expresses the committee's very decided conviction, but on the other hand likely-tho convention when it meets will be just as positively of the opinion that it is competent to transact its own business with as much sagacity as the committee evinced last year in selecting a chairman for that body. The Louisville Courier Journal wants elections abolished. It says: They do say they have been having a few more elections scattered round through the country, and tho grins on the faces of the Republicans grow wider and wider and their lips smack more loudly m anticipation of the return of the years of the Fatted Kine, . This is a dreadfully disagreeable sort of a year, anyway. Weather and weather and elections and elections, until it has simply become exasperating. It may be the making 9!' blackberries, but it is rough on Democrats. Let up on elections. Boycott elections. Abolish elections. Blot elections out of the cpnstitution and swipe the word out of the dictionary. It is beginning to be said that Gov. Jackson is as great a pardoner as his predecessor was. It is a pity. The occasions are few and far between when tho pardoning power ghould be exorcised. The too frequent employment of it is certain to discourage prosecutions, embolden offenders and practically nullify the laws. If a Governor can't help to enforce the laws he at least, ought to keep his hands off and let them be enforced by others. Senator .Quay testified before the senate committee that he had deal tin sugar trust stock during the pendency of the tariff bill and would do so again. Mr. Quay was the only republican senator who voted with the democrats to give the sugar trust that §34,000,000. Quay is one of the fellows who seem determined to justify tho very worst that their enemies say about them. And now they are actually giving him a little boom for the Presidency ! It was proved again at Webster City a few days ago, that whiskey is a bad adviser. Wm. Foval was put in the lock-up for drunkenness and disorderly conduct. The lock-up burned 'during the night and he was a blackened corpse before he could be got out. It is supposed that he set the fire himself, in the hope of getting his liberty. Congressman Perkins is meeting with considerable opposition in his campaign for a third term. Ex-Congressman I. S. Struble is his strongest competitor. Both of these men have made splendid records, and seemingly the greatest danger to be apprehended is the defeat of both and tho nomination of some second or third rate man. The Livermore Gazette announces that Phil Hanna and wife arrived in Livermore from South America last Thursday and that ho will deliver the oration at that place on July 4th. Tho REPUBLICAN has anlnterview from Phil in its local columns. The republicans have quit writing scathing editorials about the democrats. They aretpo busy taking down the confessions of the democratic press. The Spencer News declares that "the post-office business is all that has prevented the total extinction of the democratic party in Spencer." Wm. Walter Phelps died at his home in New Jersey Sunday morning. Mr. Phelps was one of the best and brightest men in the country. Victor B. Dolllver, a brother of our Con gressmau, graduated from the Columbia Law School, at Washington, June 13. The Dubuque Times is getting in soine vigorous whacks at the state committee. From the Chicago Times, Pemoeratie- Already in the last three months the senate has put over $30,ooo,QO,p into tbe war bags of tne sugar bandits, you can't produce money or property fey passing a Jaw, but 7Q U ca » K£ » lj * w w* rsngement which wiU take money from one man and give it to another, you can rob 4,QOO,WQ in favor of a.

(Therefore when the sugar ring is $80,000,000 ahead one may be sure the lest of mankind is $30,000,000 out of p&cket. Tariff just how in the senate is plainest steal on earth. It is opeft, noonday robbery. It is like a game of billiards, wherein the senate is the table, the people's interest the balls, and ttusts and rings handling chalk and cue the players. Attd the trusts have retained Carlisle as marker and Cleveland as referee. • Tat iff in the senate is like a raffle for a turkey. The sugar ring, the whisky ring, and all of the other tings handle the box aiid roll the dice. Public interest is the everlasting turkey being raffled for. The American eagle iri its one hundred and eighteenth year has become a goose to be plucked by the trusts. And the right to plunder the American public is a franchise nowbe^ ing struggled and wrangled for by the ring lobbies which constantly throng the capitol corridors and surrdtind the senate. One marvels that the public will stand this skin game in law passing which proceeds right,under the robbed publics nose. IN A TRUST'S CLUTCHES. New York Tribune; The Sugar Trust has the support of every democratic senator, except Messrs. Hill and Irby, in getting everything it has demanded. If it bought votes, the votes have been delivered. If it enabled sundry senators to make profits in speculation without risk to themselves, they have paid it by voting to bestow upon it a gift of $34,000,000 according to the calculations of Senator Aldricb, If it bought the democratic party at wholesale, by its contributions to the campaign fund in 1892, the democratic administration and senators have delivered everything they were asked to deliver. Amendments for the benefit of sugar growers were voted down by democratic senators from sugar growing states. Amendments to lessen the plunder of consumers by the sugar re- tining monopoly were voted down by every democrat who voted at all. Finally, and worst of all, the amendment which would have saved the treasury from loaning seven-eigths of the sum taken from consumers professedly for the needs of government was voted down in the same way, only one democratic senator opposing the grant to the sugar trust of power to pocket $35,000,000 out of about $40,000,000 expected to be paid by consumers. It will be held in the future, when the doings of this congress come to be calmly and dispassionately reviewed, that the most shamelessly corrupt act of which either house of congress has ever been guilty is this passage of a schedule dictated by the sugar refining monopoly. Assuredly some of the men who thus openly sacrificed the interests of their oonstituents to the demand of the trust must have had the most powerful motives for action politically fatal. Nor are these the opinions held by political opponents only. It is only a day or two since the New York Times editorially declared that nothing less than the defeat of every item for which the monopoly could be supposed to have paid would tree the senate from the taint of corruption. What the most zealous supporters of the pending tar^ iff bill are indignantly declaring,' ft is only too clear, will be thoroughly/believed by the dispassionate and fair minded men of both parties. There has never been a more infamous vote than this, and its cynical and insolent contempt of public opinion is all the more offensive because the democratic majority hastened to record its indecent votes while a committee chosen on behalf of that majority was engaged in investigating the charges of barter and corruption in regard to this very matter. If senators had known that their sin and shame would be exposed, they could not have been more in haste to snatch the price. ' The open and direct charge by Senator Chandler that senators had been speculating in sugar stock cannot be lightly passed. Neither can the demand by Senator Platt, that certain senators should be called before the investigating committee, and required to divulge what influence changed again and again the form of the sugar schedule, always to the greater advantage of the monopoly. When Senator Aldrich bluntly asserted that the schedule was dictated by-the trust, and that "nobody knew this better than Mr. Vest himself," he was quickly supported by the words of Mr. Test, which were quoted by Mr. Platt, namely, that the changes had "been forced upon the committee." The country has a right to know tey whom these changes were so "forced." It has a right to believe, if senators will not tell, that the motives successfully used were such that senators dare not tell. Further, it has every reason to believe that each and every democratic senator who refuses to insist upon a straight and full answer to such an inquiry desires to covei up an infamy which, if disclosed, he knows would be damning to bis party, Before the final vote is taken in the senate on this schedule these questions must be asked and answered, or the democratic party will convict itself of the most shameless corruption ever known in the history of the American congress, _ .

A Wide RarigS of topics intelHgShity JSiSeuSsed by thS Young People.—f he Orations ifi brief. Jahu DeWltt Millet furnishes fcloqueftcft for the Normal Graduates. The Algona High School class of 1894 held its graduating exercises in the Opera House on Thursday everting, last. The class numbers among its members those who have v taken high honors in state and local contests, and the public naturally expected ah entertainment of bigh order, and in that they were not disappointed. Tbe orations Were uniformly excellent and the delivery was clear and forcible throughout. The music was as fine as any ever rendered upon a like occasion,'consisting of two choruses rendered by the Euterpean Club, a vocal solo by Dr, Eist, and a violin solo by Miss Kate Smith, with a piano accompaniment by her sister, Miss Maude. The Euter- pean Club is composed of sixteen ladies, with Mrs. J. T. Chrischilles as accompanist. The program opened with, a horus, "Whirl and Twirl," by the Eu- terpean Club. This was followed by he invocation by Rev. Eobt. Bagnell. MISS CLAIIA HAMILTON, the first speaker, then delivered her oration upon "The Force of a Sunbeam." To the searching mind there arises the questions: VVhy does the grass grow beneath our f oet, and yon cloud float overhead? How has the earth stored up its treasures of oil, gas and minerals? The answer that comes is: Go deep enough and all things are sunlight. Go with me to the Falls of Niagara, and as we stand looking at the mighty torrent, let us consider its cause. Yonder in the tender blue sky is the glowing sun, tinting the spray with rainbow hues. Out on the broad ocean he is evaporating the water which, falling in rain upon the land, forms the rills, rivers and lakes, which come rushing to the brink of the> precipice and leap into the abyss below. Let us take the pansy as the type of all plant life. It was through the influence of the sun that its seed, buried in the earth, budded and came forth to bloom. We have stored sunlight in gas, oil and minerals. Although,the sunlight is so powerful, yet it is very delicate. Only raise your hand and you see it no more. Lower the hand and faster than eye can follow or mind can think it darts ahead through space. The light of the sun is more than a mere convenience for our small affairs. Our earth is but a tiny sphere rolling in the great flood of light. Whenever we travel upon the earth, one sweet note attends our steps, is echoed from tree to tree, from cloud to cloud. All to the sun we owe. >< r MISS BUBUS SMITH . folldwed with "I Serve," as her'them'e. All, either consciously'or unconsciously are servers of humanity, and all in turn are being served^ The savage may be independent, but civilization means interdependence. The pilgrims when faithfully serving the mother country were developing the character and gaining the experience so necessary in their future history. The great inventor aids himself materially but he he also confers benefits upon society. Material service is so closely linked with the intellectual and the moral, that there can be no separation. Washington and Lincoln are cited as types of those whose lives have been spent in the service of their country, and while working for the material advancement, the moral influence of their lives upon their contemporaries and successors cannot be estimated. The highest of 'all service is helpfulness in the journey of life, and this all can render. The oration closed with a reference to the King of Bohemia in. the battle of Crecy. Old and blind he insists upon buckling on his armor and striking a blow for France. He falls at the hands of the Black Prince, and the Prince looking upon his dead foe with admiration, picks up his crest and proclaims as his future watchword, its motto, "Ich dien." "Europe of To-day," was the subject chosen by HOWARD WALLACE, All indications point toward larger individual liberty, and year by year those in authority are obliged to make greater and greater concessions to the common people, who are rising en* masse and demanding political rights. In England, 'the House of Commons gladly grants the petitions of the people, but their legislation is checked'by the House of Lords, and the reform or abolishment of the latter body is seri* ously being discussed. The recent strike in Belgium was the first great political strike in history, but it was the signal gun that will reverberate over all Europe. The triple alliance is still a powerful factor in European po}» itics, and tends to promote the peace which each country is loth to disturb). The Czar of Bussia is still the autocrat menacing the stronger powers, and dictating policies to the weaker ones, A coalition between Russia and France seems to be one of the possibilities of the future, To one wh9 can look be' hjnd the scenes, it is evident that tne Pope in the Vatican still exercises a great influence upon tbe temporal af* fairs o£ ljurope, England has adopted tne peace policy, so long ago accepted as the policy of tne United states, "in relying upon her navy for p.rotectio« t rather than upon her standing w,-~ But tne spirit of peace seei»s to breeding today over Europe, ft Sod that the nations o| tne earth . r _ learning to J?e ieve that might is net fight, twit that justiee mil flnjjiy — vail upon the earth? "SociaUspr treated by amihatiofi, fitrfty^eeta desirable, These reformats may let the individual jgodd be secotidaty to the good of masses. Let the rich share with the poof, let there be no distinction between labor and capital. When this state of things is brought about there will be no poor, and humanity Will be happy. The unreasonableness of the scheme lies in the fact, that socialists dti tiot Mciog- nize the personal liberty which gives a man the right to accumulate property » and better his condition, This right is in accord with human nature^ and tin* til human nature changes^ socialism cari not succeed. Again, socialism strikes directly at the fundamental principle of liberty- The right to choose a vocation, the privilege of en* joying the fruits of industry and economy, the freedom of press .and platform . These principles are the essence of liberty, and if trampled in the dust anarchy must surely follow. The rem-> edy against socialistic tendencies: all opportunities must be left open that each one have the chance to rise 1 , polit* ics must be purified? justice must dictate in bUr legislation; education must be universal, and devotion to right must be supreme, "The Swan songs of the Poets," Was the subjectcbosen by MAUDE COWAN. It is a beautiful legend that the swan just before death breaks forth into song, attaining its sweetest notes as life is about to take its flight. So the poet with his ethereal vision penetrating the great mystery, sings his sweetest strains. Byron goes to Greece and enlists in the cause of the people who are striving to throw off the Turkish yoke. Three months before his death, on his last birthday, having a premonition that the end is approaching, he writes: "My days are In the yellow leaf."— Shelley wrote his last poem while drifting upon the waters ot the beautiful bay in which he was so soon to find a grave. An unfinished poem, closing abruptly, with the words: "Then, what is life? I cried." A question profoundly significant when the questioner was about to seek its answer in the halls of death. Mrs. Browning lay dying in Florence. She writes: "Friends, dear friend, when this shtill be That this low breath Is gone from me, And round my bier ye come to weep, Lot one, most lovlne of you all, say: Not a tear must o'er her tall- He gi veth his beloved sleep." After a long life, spanning three- fourths of a century, Bryant stands- waiting, Beside a massive gateway built in years gone by, Upon whoso top the clouds In eternal shadows He, While streams tho evening sunshine on quiet wood and lea, 1 atand and calmly wait till the hinges turn forme." The sweet voiced, affectionate Longfellow— "Out of the shadows of night The world rolls into light; It is day-break everywhere." . . The poet laureate, Tennyson, sings: "Twilight and evening bell, And after that, the dark: And may there be no sadness of farewell When I embark." The illustrious'eompauy- Here no longer dwell: But in a city glorious— A great and distant city— have bought A mansion incorruptible. LUTIB HART was the next speaker, and took as her subject, "The Heel of Achilles." Th'e- tis immersed Achilles in' the River Styx, that he might be rendered invulnerable to the shafts df his enimies, but she neglected to immerse the heel by which she held him, and in consequences, he met his death. An arrow directed by the god Apollo, pierced this vulnerable point. Achilles has his modern counterpart. There is no character so symmetrical in deyelopement that a weak point is nowhere exposed. Instances were brought forward in proof of the statement. Napoleon and Cardinal Wolsey were overcome through ambition; Bacon was wanting in his power of appreciation. John Adams, though profound in his views ,was lacking in good judgement, and 'his presidential administration was a failure. Many a young man has fallen through his love for money, and many others have gone down under the influence of strong drink. Selfishness has been the bane of many lives; blotting out all the beauty, and destroying all the harmony, Reforms had suffered through the questionable methods of reformers, the weakness being transferred from the reformer to the reform. Nations, as well as individuals, have their vulnerable points. Greece and Rome were lacking in their moral qualities, and having no power of endurance, declined and passed away. This nation may profit by the example of those that have gone before. If it is to endure there is to be no point in its de- fences so weak that an enemy can force a passage and overcome. "The Message," by LIZZIE WALLACE was the next oration upon the program Napoleon, with his army, is encamped at Tarwis, the loitiest pass of theNoric Alps. The red glare of the camp fires is reflected by walls of ice and bloodstained snow. The Austrian General had designed to fortify the passes, tut Napoleon captures them, He would conquer Europe and all things, shall be made to subserve that purpose, A civil engineer would take the same passes, The enemies to be overcome, would be the forces of nature, his aids would be the modern appliances of science. He would skillfully use these, and Italy and France are connected by rail, A company of scientists 'would visit the Alps, each would pursue his own in* vestigations in bis line of work,' and the result would be a great accession to scientific knowledge, One would be a geologist, and be would study the geologic formations, in search of . or» ga,nic remains, that would thrpw light upon life's history. Another would b§ interested in glaciers; and his wveiti* gations would be for the purpose of growing light on the winter when Ice was sv would fee a jratani iumw0uldb§ filled ltbjww flfti. Ma? ft tre tmdefBtorod afifl c'of- rectly interpreted. OLIVE the last upon the pfogfato, spoke upon "The Setefi Ages." "I am old—so old I can ttMte a, letter. MfrblHhdftjr lessons are .done. f Tfielanibs play always; they know no befc- fhey aVe only bhe times one.'* ... ., The little maidefi seems old tdhmeif as she sings this lay, but to othei-3 she is little older than the lanib, that ia "Only one times one." Yet she has he* tasks, f of life With all its lessons is before her s aijd if hoMof be hers, she even now rtiUst act Well her $art. The years pass. Again We see our little maiden as she sings her "Songs of Sey* en." But there is a change. A little more Of the bitter, a little less of the sweet in life. The lessons longer, the tasks more difficult to perform, and a looking forward into the future. No longer a child, nor yet a woman, she is "Standing with reluctant leet Where the brook and i-lvef ineet." Waiting for the day "when dear hearts shall discover the child is a womanv' The waiting teaches lesssoas of pa* tience. She sees in life only the noble and the good, Her ambitions and aspirations are the highest. Over the broad fields of the future she sees not the snares and pitfalls. Time goes by. The girlhood has changed to womanhood, and the little child is mistress of a happy home, with thoughts no longer of self, but for others. Nor are these confined to the home circle, but her charity is extended to all. Another seven years, and death ,invades the home, and the husband and father .is taken. She passes under the rod of affliction, but again takes up the burden for her loved ones, till she sees them all, one by one, flit from the home nest, and she is all alone. Yet her loving sympathy goes out to all about -her. But old age comes creeping on, she falls into a quiet dreamland. and She murmurs, "Can I call this home? Nay, but the port whore my sailor went And the land where my nestlings bo, There is tho hone where my thoughts are sent, The only homo for mo. Prof. Dixson, in a few well chosen remarks, presented the class to the Pres. of the board, Mr. Geo. E. Clarke, who, in a happy manner, conferred the d'plomas upon the class. The exercises closed With the benediction by Rev. A. V. Gorrell, and the audience retired, feeling that another most attractive program had been rendered without a' jar,by the pupils of our public schools. NORMAL GRADUATION. A magnificent audience witnessed the graduation exercises of the Northern Iowa Normal School at Call's Opeia House last night. A very fine musical program was given, in which Mrs. J. T. Chrischilles, Misses Grace Gilchrist and Lillie.Ranks and Dr. A. L. Rist participated. The oratorical pyrotechnics were supplied in abundance by the noted Jahu DeWitt Miller, whose announced subject was "Our Country's Possibilities and Perils,"but whose lecture is a patchwork of glittering superficialities about every thine. Mr. Miller is-one of the nimblest talkers of America, but he has a way that is" dangerous of setting his mouth in motion and then not watching it. Profs. Johnson and Chaffee presented .the Diplomas, making brief but appropriate remarks. Following are the graduates: Normal Class—David Miller, Lillian Kundert, David Dormoy, Alice Wadsworth, Carrie Goodwin. Academic Class—George Sarchett, Mabel Smith, Carabel Ramsay, Fannie Moffatt. Commercial Class—J. C. Jensen, Peter Thorson, Lee Gilbert, John Richmond, M. E. Schleicher, Edwin Taylor, J. C. Johnson, J,, B. Bergstrom, Villa Kenison, Edith Wilkinson, Geo.

There were pleasi ing exercises at the school building Thursday morning and numerous visitors were present, Remember the summer session at the Normal School is right in line with the county institute work, and those who attend both will get seven weeks' in* etruction.

Diplomatic representatives of all the nations joined in a letter expressing their high regard. It was an imposing souvenir, and was covered with the seals of the several consulates. By special act of the Yen* ezuelian Congress, Mr. Banna was decorated as "The Liberator," and every mark of honor was shown him, in recognition of the important services he performed during the recent revolutionary period. Mr. Hanna states that owing to -the failure of the government of the United States to consummate a reciprocity treaty with Venezuela, the fees of his consulate felloff one-half. Ships which formerly went home laded with hides, cocoa and coffee, now go ballasted with sand, while European vessels take the Venezuelan trade. The new Consul-at La Guyra is Gen. Allen Thomas, a rebel general who* is credited with having been the last man to yield to the superior force of the United States, and consequently he is presumed to have b,een the worst licked secessionist in the country.

Geiger, of Marion, the Orator.—A Full Program. Great preparations are making for the meeting in Algona St. John's Day, next Tuesday, the 26th, of the North Central Masonic Association of Iowa. This association takes into its jurisdiction practically all the lodges of Iowa on and accessible to the Milwaukee railroad, from Mason City to the west line of the state; including :Estherville, Spirit. .Lake, Bancroft and Eagle Grove. Present indications are that there will be a large crowd if the Weather is fair. The program 1 includes a reception at the hall of Algona lodge at 10:30, at which music will be rendered by the Juvenile State Band, of. Emmetsburg, whose services have been secured for the day. At 11 o'clock a meeting will be held in Call's Opera House, when a temporary organization will be effected and the address of welcome delivered. The principal meeting of the day will be in Call's Opera House at 2 o'clock, when the oration of the day will be delivered by Rev, J. W. Geiger, of Marion, Grand Chaplain, •; Rev. Geiger is reported to be a very able speaker. At 4 p. m. there will be -a drive to Mr. Lund's farm, where the genial proprietor will tender a reception to the visitors. The banquet will be served at7p.m.,probably at the Rink, and the arrangement is that the ladies of Congregational society shall cater to the appetites of the Mosonic brethren. In order that there may be no misunr derstanding it needs to be said^that there is to be nothing of a secret nature in any of the doings at the Opera House, and the committee, would like to see the house well filled, but as it is not known whether or not there will be a sufficient number'of members of the order to fill it, they'are not in a position to extend a general invitation, as they would be glad to do if they could give assurance of seated There will be no parade, Business men are requested to decorate their buildings appro* priately, and no doubt there will be a general compliance, ,The town did nobly in this respect on the occasion sf the Odd Fellows' oelebratiop,. - f ' done to order by Mrs, southwest paFt o Remember the removal jale at J> Laird's, ' furniture store; WUJt gO. -. ..............
