Ot7T FOR In this issue appears the announce* went of the candidacy of Alex White of this place for county auditor. Mr. White Will be a candidate for that .place before the republican colinty convention, to the decision of which he will, of course, submit. Mr. White is one of the popular young business men of Algona, and thete is no doubt about his being Well q.ualified for the position to Which he aspires. He has had charge of the business of the John Paul Lumber Company in Algona, for the past Prior to coming here, he for the Bowman Lumber Company atMapleton, Mononacounty, for six years. Mr. White has many warm friends throughout the county, and it is probable that, whether 'nominated or not, he will have a strong following in the convention.. It is.under- stood that Mr. Doxsee will be a candidate forrenomination. and other names are being mentioned in the same connection, so there is likely to be a lively scuffle tor the place. five years. was agent ical attendant of sttlkes, and must anticipated and counted oft.

That a mixture of social and finah* cial conditions and a variety and multiplicity of occupations, such as we find in a state like lows*are adopted to promote the highest civilization and the greatest prosperity and happiness of all the people. : r ! THINGS WE THINK WE KNOW. That the Pullman employes are but a very small percentage of the men in the United States today who had, steady work at good wages last year but who this year have no work at any wages. ; TJhat the trouble is in the 'diminished demand for labor, and that . this- dimi- . wished demand is due to a diminished demand for the products of labor. This in turn is due largely to uncertainly as to what the prices of these ; products will be under the new tariff, and an apprehension of a slump in prices all along the line, and a wild rush after cheap foreign goods made by cheap labor. That the generosity and benevolence of employers, though of immense wealth, cannot be depended on to maintain high wages in the absence of a strong demand for labor. Individuals and corporations are in business for the ; ' money there is in it, and it is the general rule, where competition is brisk between the products of labor, that money cannot be made by those : whp pay more for labor than their competitors pay. Further, as human 1 nature GEOVEWS LATEST BLUNDER. A very lively democratic fight is on at Washington over the tariff question. The conference cdmruittee Of the two houses failed to come to any agreement to adjust the difference between the- house and senate^bills, and .the house promptly instructed its conferees to re* fuse all overtures for a compromise. Then on the .heels of that came the reading by Chairman Wilson of a letter addressed to him by President Cleveland, in which he used very strong language in condemnation of the senate bill and made a plea for free coal, free iron and free sugair.. Here are a few : of the gems contained in Cleveland's let- "The certainty that .conference will be ordered between the two houses of congress for the purpose of adjusting the differences on the subject of tai;iff legislation makes it certain that you will be called on to do hard service in the cause of tariff reform. ,Mv public life has been so closely related' to the subject, I have so longed for its accomplishment, I have so often promised its realization to my fellow countrymen as the result of their trust and confidence in the Democratic party, that I hope no excuse is necessary.for my earnest appeal to you that in this crisis you strenuously insist on party honesty, good faith, and steady adherence to Democratic principles. I believe these are absolutely necessary conditions to the continuation ofcDempcratic existence. I cannot rid myself of the feeling that this conference will present the best, if not the only, hope of true Democracy. * Every true democrat, every sincere tariff reformer, knows the bill in its present form, and as it will be submitted to the conference, falls short of the sizes itself up, and labor being a main item, employers will not pay more than" they have to anyway, because they want to make money as fast as they can, and the welfare of their employes is a secondary consideration. This is what is to be looked for and counted on under that best condition of society longed for by idealists in which monopoly is unknown and the competitive system prevails. It is individualism', every man for himself. The majority -of people today believe this is the best system, and adapted to develop the most and best that there is in men, and promote the highest civilization by offering the strongest incentive to effort. It is upon this existing order of the world that we must base all our conclusions. That consequently that 4 political economy is the soundest, if we regard the interests of labor in this country, which if put in practice, allows of the profitable production here at home of the greatest possible quantity and variety of goods. This means the greatest possible demand for labor and the highest possible wages. Protection if wisely adjusted is not a bonus to capital but a good market for home goods. That always means a good market for home labor and good wages for labor, That the conditions at Pullman are similar to those prevailing in about every manufacturing community in the United States today, only that the shutting down of labor at Pullman came about a year later than elsewhere. A year ago the average* yearly •wages of all the employes at Pullman was not less than $500 for 1 ev^ry man employed. The workmen had about 8700,000 in the savings banks. The city was a model industrial community and tnere was universal content. No such factory town as Pullman^ was can be found in the old world, The jlaboj-era of Europe do not live in comfortable Bowses, with city water, electric lights, free public libraries and free public schools and churches for laboring men ' and their families. The present < epanged conditions at Pullman and in 1 otnei? factory towpsin this country 3ie '-.believed by most of the people of the land to be due to the expectation of fr#e trade. That strikes have in ne'arly aH cpes tQ increase wages, When in rare they have succeeded it bas years to mafee up j» in» cjeajjefl wages f QF the lois incused dur* isg the period of idleness, That strikes are usually atten4?4 by intimidation, riots and jjj sa jv That in tkese days, when m ^auy jjeedy men aye put pf WQJ^ is usually necejaawy to ttie Pitted vacated by the strike;-? from by tftyvfc 4n4 y it to consummation for which we have long labored, for which we have suffered defeat without discouragement; which in anticipatipn gave us the rallying cry in our day of triumph, arid which in its promise of accomplishment is so interwoven with democratic pledges and democratic success, that our abandonment of the cause or;principles on which, it rests, means party perfidy and party dishonor. One topic will be submitted to conference which embodies the Democratic principles. so directly, that it cannot be compromised. We have in our platform and every* way possible declared in favor of the free importation of raw materials: We again and again promised that this should be accorded our, people and our manufacturers as soon as the'' democratic party was invested with power to determine the tariff policy of the country. The party has now the power. We are as certain today as ever of the great benefit that would accrue to the country from the inauguration of this policy, and nothing has occurred to release us from this obligation to secure this advantage to our people. It must be admitted that no tariff measure can accord with democratic principles and promises or bear the genuine democratic badge that dOes-not provide for free raw materials, In these circumstances it may well excite our wonder that democrats are willing to depart' from this most democratic of all tariff; principles, and that inconsistent ab : surdity such as the proposed departure, should be emphasized by the suggestion that the wool of the farmer be put on the free list and protection of tariff taxation be placed round the iron ore and coal of corporations and capitalists, How can we face the people after indulging in such outrageous discriminations and violations of principle? The publication of the letter caused great excitement in the senate, where the president's attempted dictation was resented in'language more forcible than polite. It wpkQSi it very doubtful whether the present congress can pass any tariff bill, There will have to be a complete backdown by the senate, or no bill can pass, and that body was never less dlsposed'^'an now to adopt a conciliatory role;' The democrats of Ue senate are believed by the country to be shamelessly corrupt, and the bet" ter element of tbe party would like to see the leadership wrested from tbeWi But it is a question whether in throwing 4ow» the gage of battle to the senate leaders Cleveland has not made the serious mjstajie of bis "life and wrecked tbe Democratic party? may be bad for that organization, how ever, way. be tbe best thing that eaii bappe» jfo tfee, cpBBtry, 0»ce tjhe, threat pf a democratic tariff is, removed tbe .f»eUm &ny ptwol tnftttfcfi u ™.weti*4Mon of SllyerttaS ptblielf d»cussed for ihfea>srV before the Mi was passed; of stand convicted of beihf i ndt- orlous Hfcr.

If, knowing the facts, he deliberately denies them, his last state will be worse than the first. If Mr. bphnelly Is as ignorant as he says he is In Ills paper The Journal has no. objection to enlightening him. : The historic facts are as follows, and Mr. Donnelly, If ho will take the trouble, can verify them: On April 2», 1890, Geo. S. JJontwell, secretary of the treasury,sent to the senate the draft of a bill which Is now known as the coinage act of Feb. 12, 1873, revising all laws relating to mint coinage, and distinctly omitting the,sllver dollar. This bill was sent out to exports for their opinions by Hon. John Jay Knox, comptroller of the'currency, and thesenate to'ok no immediate action, save to send for expert views btt the measure. Tlu» expert views of the proposed act were made public and tho fact that the silver dollar was discontinued was published In every ncwspa- pcr.of any Influence In the country. The expert replies announcing that tho bill demonetized silver, went to the house from the senate and.wcreread by every member wrio wanted to real! them, and were*published in,the daily papers. On June 10, 1871,. after full discussion and fdll knowl-? edge of the omission of tho silver ; dollar from the bill, the measure was passed by the senate, by a vote of 36 to 14, and sent to the house, \yhere many speeches, were delivered 1 lipoh it and tho fact of tho..omis- sloiibf the'sllvor dollar was largely: commented upon. The distinguished Congressman Kelley, of' Pennsylvania, spoke in favor of the bill and agiinst its oppon- ents'as insisting on malntaiug a silver dollar worth #A cents more than the gold dollar and, under such circumstances,;;.bound to disappear from circulation, as it had for many years. Speech after speech was made in the house on the bill, which was printed 13 times and closely discussed.dur- ing five different sessions of congress. The discussion takes up about 150 pages of .the Congressional.,Qlobe, and yet Dondelly, who professosio'be;: a statesman, says no discussion-toblt place between 1870 and 1874. 'Senator Ingalls, indeed, who cannot be accused of warring against silver, referring to this silly falsehood that the coinage bill omitting the silver dollar, was never; ' discussed, ;•; but. surreptitiously put through congress, said in 18SJ1 that the bill was under discussion through several sessions of congress, discu'sscd by the press and all commercial and' financial bodies and th'jit thepeppj^who didn't know what tho bill containe^ must have been hypn4t ; ized, Ignatius Do'npellymust have been'a'T mongthe' hypnotised, 'and''unless ho ox- plains his ignorance bf^e measure in that way he exposes himself\as,a man altogether unfit to represent :the State tff lilinneso- ta in any capacity where ordinary .knowledge df the financial history of;the count- ryiis necessary. .; v . •'•; .;•. & niemb-Cr bf his ctfin'pan^.

Mr. Tennant was about ready to cut the grass, and had sent out four loads of lumber to put up hay shanties and sheds for the horses, with his brother, from Hartley, to dp the carpenter work. When the men got there the fire was raging over the Section, and it took the liveliest kind of? work to put a stop, to it. After it wfts once stopped and apparently^ extinguished it sprang up again; and it was not until about ten o'clock at night that a final quietus was put to it. . The fire.was set by.Eobt.

An alarm brought out the fire department, which did splendid service, saving part of the building and preventing the spread of the flames to the adjacent property. The fire started in the back end of the house which was uaed as a kitchen and which was almost com-. The front part will new front part built. There was no insurance whatever on the building, not that Mr. Winkel does not believe in insurance, but because he had intended to move and partially rebuild the structure and then insure it.

DEATH OF 1 J.,HARVEY MATHERS. The Elmpre Eye of the 18th instant, contains an announcement of the death of J. Harvey Mathers, so long a'resi- dent of this town and neighborhood) which will 1 be of deep interest to otir readers': ' •• : After a lingering illness of over a year and a,,half, J. Harvey Mathers died at the home of his father, aj; this place, on Tuesday afternoon. The funeral was held today at 1 o'clock, Rev. Goodell officiating. The remains were taken to Irvington, Iowa—former home of the deceased—for interment. A year and a.balf ago Mr. Mathers suffered a;paralytic stroke and. bad been a constant sufferer'ever since, gradually failing until'death .came to his relief. Many friends and relatives mourn his death. ; ;-• ' • i J. Harvey Mathers was a familiar figure with the old settlers of the county. He ; 'was unmarried and usually was without any regular employment, so that he had abundance of .leisure and was free. from the care and worry that infects the race. It was true of him in a degree beyond what.can be said of most of his fellows, that ^Man wants-but little here below." /The little that he required he got causually as be went along, and probably on the whole he gave an .equivalent in labor. Harvey was a man of no mean abilities. He running a paper in jEromet county for some time, on which he did some very creditable work. We regret that his last days were clouded with infirmity, aind in common with, we think, all who knew him well^ we repjember'him only with the kindest feelings,- • , , All unharvested crops have reached 1 , a critical stage, and every day's continuance of the drouth adds to the extent of the injury already done. Within the past two weeks corn in we larger part of the State has steadily ' retrograded., and the extent of the injury cannot as yet be estimated, In the dryest of the ''burnt district" the damage is beyond recovery, but in many of the northern counties the prospect is better.
