It adopted a declaration of principles embodying the essence of national republicanism« Wisely leaving.out all reference to local and side issues. The candidates nominated are believed to be without exception, men of good standing, capable and worthy. It is not to their discredit that their names had not appeared on any ring slate. As was previously conceded. Secretary of State McFarland, Auditor qf State McCarthy and 'Supreme Judge!? Granger and Deemer were nominated by acclamation^; John'Herriot, of Guthrie county, was nominated for Treasurer. He is .a native of Pennsylvania, fifty years of age, ran old soldier, ^as county treasurer •six years and member .of the republican state central committee three years. 'Capt.'Chas. L. Davidson, of Sioux county, was nominated for Bailroad Commissioner. -'He is well known in ^northern Iowa, and is very popular wherever known. He was a resident of Algona for^several years, but now 'resides at Hull. He was born in Ohio in 1846. He enlisted when he was six- >teen,andat the -dose of "the war he .'Studied law at the Chicago tTnivefsity. file 1 has made reabestate his main bus- .iness, but he has interested himself in 'public enterprises and was the >princi- ?pal founder of the «dadandy at' : !Hiill, •which town was largely built up by^his ^enterprise. He was president 'of the •State Sunday School association in 1886. In 1891'he was department commander of the Iowa G. A. B. 3Ie was: a state senator, and is now a j member of the -soldier's'home commission and president of the fitate Bank <of Hull. He was captain of a company of the I. N. • >G. and is at present a mapir on the retired list. Benjamin 1. Salinger, -the nominee • for Beporter of the Supreme Court, is •a German, thirtv-two years-old, a man <if ability and promise. He-started out as a.teacher but studied and practiced law. His speech as chairm&a of the Webster City congressional convention which gave Mr. Dolliver fais first nomination,(made him locally famous. On the strength of that he was called «ast to take a-hand initke presidential '•canvass, and .made thirty speeches in Hew York 'City. He was permanent Chairman of ithe state convention -a few years since and has beea conspicuous in polities. . ; Milton iEenley, -of Iowa 'City, ths-can- •didate for Attorney .General, is one of the .brainiest imembers of ithe Iowa bar .and iiis private lifeis without reproach. He iias long been prominefit in public 3ife. A better man. or a .man who will ni«ue eonscieatiousLyperfoum the duties of his .office, .'could .not shave ;bean Earned.

S. Sessions, .of Kossuth county, received 218 votes. The successful raspirant has performed tbe duties of the -office as deputy for many years. s©n the whole, the ticket -is one •of the best thatithe republicans of this state have ever nominated. It will without doubt be .elected, and by a an increased majority, The action .of the cdssyentianan notifying the state .eentral committee' to keep its hands off the permanent organization of future conventiops WAS •wisely taken. Senator Harsli was made permanent chairman OQ Jus own tmer- ita and the recommendation of the convention's own committee.

It is something that our enemies will find It hard to controvert. It is supposed to 'refer to the thirteenth plank without referring to it, but mere supposition will not suffice. After they hav 1 proven that they will have to prove what the thirteenth plank .Meant; and then prove wtoat the mulct-law ineaiis. It is a vigorous mind that will take up such a hefty burden of (proof this hot weather, and our belief is tlhat it will bo carefully avoided. The Fort Dodge Messenger puts com* pulsory arbitration In a more plansibie shape than we have elsewhere noted: The public interest may redtiiri that the railways, because of the public char* acter of their .business, shall be operated under such government supeWlsiolr as ffcs KttHf& ift Ahntiil iftstituti Swsfoft Nt*t A Qfl&« Oetftsiofi. with ftfof. f»f8gfam fot flight, 'shall provide for a settlement without these of their wage disputes without these ."tie-ups" which are so paralyzihg to general bits* iness. We are satisfied that this ought to be ( not to • torbinote the interest of eithdf party to the dispute but to protect the greater interests of the public. In that case it will be made obligatory upon the companies to pay the wages awarded by whatever tribunal may be given authority (piobably the interstate com* merce commission) and on the other hand a strike on a railway will be made a crlm- inal conspiracy. The republican platform speaks the sentiment of every patriotic American when it says: "The honest and industrious immigrant who comes to our land with the intent to become .ingood faith an American citizen, is always welcome. None other should bo permitted to«<3me." The town of Belle Plaine was' almost .totally destroyed by fire Saturday. ,The town of Brooklyn was also nearly all burned up. Phillips, Wisconsin, las.t week was burned up and sixteen lives were lost. NOT A CHRISTIAN FAITH. Col.Eiboeck, the editor of the Staats- Anzeigcr, who WAS beaten out of the- appointment as postmaster at Des Moines, has issued a card of thanks to his friends, in the course of which belays: "I will never again be an applicant for any public office. I would''not'.!baye been this time but for the voluntary encouragement and offer of support from these gentlemen; Unfortunately'I believed .th6m. I thought that they desired -that. iny more than twenty years of unrequited service for the party and the sacrifice of what was to me a little fortune and the sacrifice for the party of every dollar I earned during those years should he recognized and partly rewarded; but those honorable gentlemen reprnsenting the democratic party in high . places evidently simply wanted, as one of them expressed himself, "to fool the Dutchman" and then to kick him aside. These, honorable gentlemen the democrats of Iowa shall know in due time." Senator Hoar of Massachusetts expresses his opinion of the proposed tariff emphatically as follows:. "In .the cost of money, the destruction of property, the starvation of men accustomed ,to work for the comforts of life, this bill is twofold worse than four years of war." \ The hatred of G-rovcr for David and of David for Grover has long been a proverb, but what would Grover have done for a defender in the senate but for David? There would only have been the chirping ofVilas. . .,!••• The populist convention held at Humboldt last Friday placed in the field as the party's candidate J. C. Baker, of Emmetsburg. Mr. Baker was a candidate for the legislature last year and is a bright man, but in view of the record the populists have been making lately in the senate, and in view of other things too numerous to allude to, not 4o mention that the republicans have nominated Mr. Dolliver, it idoes seem like a very ridiculous waste of running energy. It seems to be conceded by all the Clay county papers that the republicans out there have .been having a very hotsum- mer.of it. The county, convention was held.a week ago Saturday and the big side was victorious, It is to be noted to the credit of the Clay county republicans that despite their local row, they presented a united front in support of their candidate for attorney general, A. C. Parker. To the Editor: All who were privileged to hear the interesting sermon delivered by Rev. Mr. Byrnes on Sunday morning in the Congregational church must have felt impressed with the idea that Unitarianism is not,' as he would interpret it, in any peculiar sense a Christian faith. It might be the product of Buddhism or Bramnan- ismor any other oriental belief j and still retain its vital religious 'power. Perhaps tbe speaker feels that it: is no longer necessary to state over and'over the important truth that it is Christian Unitarianism and Christian Buddhism and Christian Brahminism, as well as Christian Methodism and Presbyterianism that will bring about the reign of universal brotherhood and universal religious faith. • • ,•'••-'_ Unitarianism was in the beginning A dissent and revolt from that part of puritanical New England 'theology, which held harsh and unworthy views of God and ingnoble views of man. Unitarianism said: God, is good and man is noblel Many Congregational churches in New England accepted this new faith, and proclaimed this sew gospel under the same Christian banner which the Pilgrim Fathers had so jealously borne across the wintry seas; and because of this adherence to the Christian standard Unitarianisra became a power in New England to liberate and ,revolutionize and uplift New England theology. , M Christian Unitarianism has sent its missionaries to heathen lands—if not in as great numbers—yet.tp do the same work that is done by other Christian missionaries. • Mr. .Magoomdar, the eloquent' re- presentative'of the Brahma Somiiif, in •India, in.bis address at the Parliament of Religions in Chicago, spoke in: highest terms of the noble Christian missionaries and their work in India, We do not see how.Unitarianism can be truly presented today with the fact left out that its brave leaders and-foundera were men of firm faith in the supremacy and power of the Christian religion. The testimony on this point is unmistakable. The words of Johuathan Edwards and John Wesley can have no more ringing emphasis in regard to Christ as theDivine Spiritual leader and Saviour of mankind than do those ot James Martineau, Dr. Bellows and James Freeman Clarke. The inherent power of Unitarianism is lost when we lose sight of the Christian faith of those who have given it a name in the world. Perhaps Rev. Mr. Byrnes does not intend to be ungrateful to the memory of the brave men who have given their stamp and seal to the Unitarian faith; but we think many hearers would have been glad to have heard some strong words in the sermon on Sunday, like the following from Rev. William H. Channing, attesting the firm loyalty of Unitarians to Christianity as well as Unitarianism: "Are. we sure that tbe Christian religious, the Christian The ifesstiUi County Teachers' iti* etitute which 19 tb open in Algohft next Monday morning will be the thirtieth annual meeting of that body- It may make some of the teachers dizzy to loot back fid far, but if they were not bete at the first there were others. We doubt if there are many counties to the state where so perfect a county" organi* zatkm of the common school interests exists as we have in Ktossuthi but that organization is not of musfardom growth, Educational interests were ai» ways kept Weil to. the front in this county, and Supt, Seed could not have done a more fitting thing than he has done in securing as the chief participant in the formal opening of the in> stitute one whose name is linked with one of the ombitious early educational enterprises of the county, Prof, o.

Rowena Moise, geography^ these, Prof. Shoup, of Sioux City, is well known to the teachers of the county, having been an instructor in Kossuth County institutes for a number of years. Miss Minnie B. Morse, of the same place, is an Algona young lady and popular here. Prof. Barslou is the Principal of the Wesley school and is one of the rising lights in the local educational firmament. Prof. Dixson has the important branches of algebra and arithmetic, and Supt. Beed will make himself useful as well' as ornamental in the general conduct of the Institute and the explanation and - exemplification of school law, •] THE FORMAL OPENING will occur Tuesday evening, Aug. 7, in the Congregational church. The address of welcome on behalf of Algona will be delivered by Willie Galbraith, who took the first prize in the state oratorical contest last May, and who always does admirably whenever he appears upon the platform. On behalf of tbe teachers the response will be made by Miss Carrie Goodwin, of Burt, who has won a reputation as a ready and gifted speaker which leads the teachers to look for a lively oratorical contest between the sexes, with the chances as nearly even as they well could be. The lecture to be delivered by Prof. O. H. Baker, of Indianola, will have for its subject: "The American Consulate atCopenhageh;" and it Oofrflflglef f. q'e«*fi6ne% ''tttfe* Moved ahd Seconded that the Clefk be instructed to dfaft & wfiffaftf for IIB&iti favor of 'Mf.

On Thursday-evening Mr. E. P. Me Elroy will deliver a memorial address on Kossuth,-the great Hungarian Patriot. Inasmuch as this county was named in honor of that heroic character, about the time of his visit to this country, it is appropriate that such an address be delivered before an au- ,dience representing the county as a whole, and certainly no speaker which it would be practicable to secure is better prepared to deliversuch an address. On this occasion Miss Buth Beed, the little daughter of tbe County Superintendent, will recite a poem entitled "The Mission of Kossuth," from the pen of our poet Campbell. CROMWELL' VS. CHARLES FIRST. On Monday evening, August 13, Bev. W. E, Davidson, pastor of the Congregational church, will deliver a lecture entitled "The. Struggle between Charles Eirst and the People," The speaker is always strong and interesting when treating historical subjects, and no more interesting section of English history could be chosen than that which There were Few Out and the Bosses Run Things. — A SJeek Scheme to Avoid Contests.—Sullivan Retained. A SOUND PLATFORM. The republicans of Iowa adopted a platform at Des Moines last Wednesday that every republican can point to with pride and satisfaction, It is very easy to be understood, In fact it isjm- possible to be misunderstood, On the great question of protection, which is the leading question of the times, it declares clearly and strongly the true re* jmblicaq doctrine, It says; : We again declare for a system of pro' tective duties go adjusted that every American resource can be developed by American labor, receiving American wages; a,B<J we insist upon a tariff that will accomplish these ends, We have but to mention the disastrous results which have followed the mere menace of free trade as. conclus ive evidence of the wisdom of the republican policy in tUe pa,et upon Matters.are getting to be serious at Pullman. Therelief committee are about at the end of their resources, and starvation is staring the people in the face. • ]Jfone of! the tenants have paid any rent sjpce the .strike begun, and there have been no evictions so far; The Pullmans have been trying for some time to get men enough to run their works, but many of those who wished to go to work were intimidated by • the toughs. • A mob recently set upon a lot of young women who were engagedjp the laundry department, and some had to run for their Jives. It seems to be a conflict between capital and labor. ,,., , : The Wesley Reporter expresses a very prevalent opinion wfteu jt says: "The Compbellite preacher that invoked the wrath of Omnipotence on the democratic party at the opening of state convention ma^e a the Republican consummate as§ is direct and clear out.

There somehow, seems to be a falling off of interest. The people do not turn: out. On account of the small number of townships represented it was. thought best to. postpone part of the business of .the convention, the appointment of township cpaimittemen.. The scheme -by which to obviate any. possible fight' over the allotment of delegates is believed to be particularly smart. This county is allowed nine delegates in the two conventions, and so the fine workers made a list of eighteen names, and every delegate is to have half a Vote. The convention was called to order by County Chairman J. W. Sullivan. C. D. Pettibone was honored with the chairmanship of the convention, and C. C. Thompson, the Bancroft lawyer, was called on to keep the record straight. The several committees were appointed, and ^pme time was consumed in getting' their reports before the convention. The committee on state . delegates named J. W. Sullivan, C. D. Pettibone.M. J, Walsh, C. C, Thompson, C. .L, Lund, P. T. .Ferguson* Thos. McGovern, Fred Lange, J, A. Robertson, H, A. Lillibridge, J, J. Kan, Phil. Dorweiler, J. G. Graham, Frank Weimer, C. V. Dun,n,.Silas Roupe, Guy Butts, Geo. Stewart, J. B. Hofius. The state convention meets to-day, at Des Moines. For the Congressional convention, which is. to be held at Boone on the 10th of August, the following were .chosen as delegates: J. J. Wilson, A, Rutherford, Jr., Dr f . Walters, J. T, Cbrischilles, L. C. Smith, P, J, Walker Perry McDonald, Fred Pompe, Alex Fraser. tfisll fifgi j fl tfa hood.-Edgle GroVft Loses i Black.

"The flre caught in the stairway and the woman opened the door, when the flames Crushed through and caught her clothes. She then threw three children out of the window, tbe last one being a baby five Weeks old, Luckily a man was Underneath who caUght it. She then jumped herself , but was burned in a horrible manner, the flesh dropping off her hands and arms, Her face was perfectly black, her lips swollen an inch thick, and her back and sides were badly burned, It seems strange that she could not save herself in broad daylight (it was 3 p, m,), but the fire must have got a good start bef ore being seen, and in trying to save the children she lost her life, as she is dying as I write. The people are poor and did not save a thing. P.S. The woman has just died." OTHER FIRES. • , A disastrous fire occurred at Eagle Grove Monday night, in which the principal block' east of \ tbe 1 railroad track .was destroyed. The railroad company got its engines and rolling stock ready to move out in case the fire encroached too near, but it was checked before the property was endangered. And now comes the intelligence that Goose Lake is burning, up. The dry bottom of this lake., located near West Bend, is a peat bed, and it has already, according to report, burned to a depth or, four feet. The barn on the Marsh Stevens farm, near the Fisher bridge, burned in about ten minutes last Friday. It seemed to take wings and go up in flame and smoke. • : .A passing engine set fire to the dried grass on Lund's place a few days ago. The crew jumped off the train and did some lively work fighting fire, and in a short time the flames were put out; . Last Friday's Whittemore Champion says: Pat Higgins' hay field is burning west of town to-pay. The fire- originated from the noon train. The probability is that the section men are: hard at it. The crew of the west-bound freight helped fight the fire as long as they thought it of any avail. .Half a dozen stacks can be seen .0n fire from town and a very , hot wind is coming from that direction , _ if, * Emmetsb*Wg.Repprter/47>Mra."J!V P.
