The .>ittdeediftgs Were Without enthusiasm, being in this respect in strong contrast with those of last year, when the party felt some confidence of winning 1 '.Mnere wafc ; bo contest for any of the nominationB,and quite a number who were proposed to the convention insisted on having their names withdrawn. One of these, was Peter A. Dey for railroad commissioner. Mr. Dey was never before known to decline a nomination, but this tame a letter from him absolutely declining to run was sent up and read to the •convention when his name was, proposed. -John Cliggett, of Cerro Gorde county, emphatically declined, but WAS nominated in spite of himself. All the nominations were made by acclamation. - • ' ' ]•' The ticket as finally made up.lwas: Fred Heinz, of Davenport, for Secretary of State; John Winfield, of Guthrie, for Auditor; L. W. White, of Wayoe, for Treasurer; John Cliggett, of Cerro Gordo, and Edward W. Mitchell, of Fremont, for Judges of the Supreme Court; J. D. F. Smith, of Cherokee, for Attorney General; W. L. Parker, of Osceola, for Bailroad Commissioner; T. B. Worth, of Dallas, for Clerk of the Supreme Court? and J. J. Shea, of Council .Bluffs, for Supreme Court Reporter. • " The platform endorses everything Cleveland ever did, and gives his foreign policy special commendatory mention. It pronounces for free coinage of silver, but with a string .tied to it, in the shape of a clause calling for dollars of gold and silver £.of equal intrinsic value. The resolutions declare for a purely revenue tariff, which the democratic party, as represented in congress does not seem disposed to enact. DOUBLING THE DOLLAR. We regret to see the Courier mislead its trusting readers in respect to the democratic platform, adopted : at Des Moines last .week. Qt cburse-.tha Courier is on record in favor of free coinage of silver at the raitip/iof- I6vto 1, world without .end, ;.eyei£. .tiiugtf the dollar so coined might not'liavjj the intrinsic value of a nickle, and naturally it comes a trifle hard to ; tel.Uts readers that the convention went straight back on that proposition. So the Courier simply says that the resolutions declare for "the coinage of gold and silver without discrimination." That is strictly true, of course, but it is only half the truth, The Courier should •lose no time in giving the qualifying clause of the resolution, which says: "But the dollar unit of coinage of both metals must be of equal intrinsic and exchangable value." That calls for a silver dollar about twice ,as large and twice as heavy as the one we now have. The people who are so hot for free coinage do not want such a dollar. They do not object so much to its size or its weight. They would possibly enjoy a dollar that would pull down harder in their pants, but what they want more than they want anything else is a cheap legal tender dollar, two 1 of which, if possible, can be bought for a dollar in gold, The Courier might just as well tell its readers that the Iowa democracy are opposed to that kind of a dollar. J.Fred Myers, in opening his address to the editors at Spirit Lake last week, took a text ft-oifi/ScripWe which' reads: "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and bis righteousness and all these things shall be added tint<ryoti.'' if the editors could only follow the advice given by Mr* Myers they would prob* ably be lodked up to with feveii great* er. reverence than they now are. FoW If Cleveland's attofney'geherftlwlll enforce the laws which affect railway atid other corporations with as much vigof as he enforced the laws against the strikers He will win a reputation for patriotic too- tives which at present he sadly lacks,, The Carroll Herald complains that the state convention is too large, "It, is," says the Herald, "unwieldy and difficult to manage." What did you want to do with it, Bro. Hungerford? The light is breaking in on Debs. In a recent speech he said! t • . "This strike has developed the fact that 'the sentiment of the people of the country is against strikes and that the government- stands ready to put down such movements at the point of the bayonet. I shall hereafter advise all wprkingmen to seek redress by the ballot; 1 ' . '.. This is not strict truth, because, the government does not stand ready with bayonets to interfere with the personal liberty of anybody to quit work at pleasure.- It is only when men who strike interfere with the rights of otheis that they are in any danger of being interfered with. 'But Debs has evidently got a valuable pointer. th« koftsuth Cbuftiy TCichifS* the tirgfcst on Record.— 3«S on at Eight Business BtgifiS on tht tick of the Glock. Supt. Meed and Profs.

We call the attention of such as have entertained 'the fear thatlowa is going to become a desert waste, to the article on the first page of this paper from the pen of Prof. Kent. The Professor in that article negatives the view that is being expressed just now by many that tile draining has been haying a bad effect, and as to the suggestion that our forests are being'destroy- ed, ho calls attention; 'to ,the countless groves that have sprung up-on our farms, which largely over balance any diminution of our native •forests'. 'The • Professor's teaching is that tile draiping makes the soil dryer in wet times and more 'moist in dry times. , .• . ' < Gov. Jackson has issued a proclamation warning the people of the,cities of the state to guard against the outbreak of fires. The fires which have wiped out of existence the town of Belle Plaine, and destroyed so much property in Marion, Brooklyn, Boone and Eagle Grove, ought to serve as a constant reminder of the imminent danger in which every Iowa town stands today. Objection is coming from numerous quarters against the laying of the corner stone of the Iowa Soldiers' monument by the Masons. The Masonic fraternity stands very high, of course, in Iowa, as elsewhere, but it is hard to see what propriety there is in the state's abdicating its legitimate direction of the ceremony to any organization whatever. The monument is to be erected with the people's money. The Iowa democrats are in hard luck this year. Three of the candidates nominated at their state convention last Wednesday have alrea'dy signified their refusal to stand. They see certain defeat staring the ticket in the face and they don't see the use of being mixed up in the ruins, EDITORS IN COUNCIL, The editorial convention at Spirit Lake last week was well attended by : the editors of Northwestern Iowa and took in a number of prominent newspaper men from outside of the original limits of the assoeiatiot, among the latter being J, Fred Myers of the Denison Review, Mr, Mclntyre of the Shell Bock News, Mr. Payne of the Nevada Representative, and Mr, Myers of the Mason City .Republican, while Late Young of The DesMoines Capital, and wife, and Secretary of State MoFarland wf re present as visitors, Papers were read on various topics covering the business and editorial management of the newspaper, and interesting and valuable discussions followed, A. very pleasant excursion on Qkoboji on toe steamer Manhattan, filled up Friday afternoon, The party were given several hours at Manhattan Beach,, Where the toboggan slide -into toe lake is a great attraction, and where the bathing facilities are excellent- Qn tbe return trip Badgerow's mineral .spring was visited, and, a circuit pf the lafce was »ade. Tbe feature $ the evening was The democratic and republican judicial conventions of the fourth district met at Sheldon last Friday, and both nominated the same ticket, Three are republicans and one is a democrat. Of the former, one is John F. Oliver, of Oiiawa, a son of Judge Oliver, so well known in all this region when he was on the bench. The A, R, U. strike has been declared off, and now the men are falling over each other to get back to work. Of course many of the places vacated have been filled by new men, and these the railroad of* ficjala will probably not discharge, The strikers have made a bad, mess of it for themselves, many of them having 4hown themselves out of employment ; which might have been permanent, and^being at present without even the prospect' of any work. But Debs and the other leaders are well provided for, Debs is said to jjve in one of the most elegant and most stylishly equipped residences Jn TejTa,Hftute, with eervants and carriages to match, The teachers who attend the Kossuth County Institute ate generally prompt in putting in an appearance, but Monday morning Supt. Eeed Was for once surprised to find & plump two hundred in possession of the school buildin'g at 8 o'clock sharp. They were not only on band, but tney were there for business, and the Supt, Wa6 so Jubilant that he began to keep school right away, When asked yesterday Whether he had the institute organized yet, he responded promptly: "It Was organized yesterday morning at 8 o'clock." in fact, business began that morning just as though the institute had been In progress for a month, Not a recitation was missed, Tbe attendance this year at the opening was twenty in excess, pf what it was at last year's opening. Then there, were 180; by Tuesday 190 had enrolled. This year 200 were present at the tap of the bell, and by Tuesday noon there were upwards of 220, the total number registered last year. A BRILLIANT OPENING. THE FORMAL PUBiJtC OPEHING OCCUBS ,. ... .LAST EVENING. '. , The auditorium of the CoBgregation al church was filled at an early hour last evening, and the lecture room hud to be thrown open to give room'to 1 those •who wished to enjoy the formal opening exercises. .It was an audieiice,«uch 'as no .other county in northern Iowa, nor perhaps in any county in the state- has ever got or can get together.' NO other county anywhere, so far as.we have ob^ served, ever turns out an institute o.£ 225 country teachers. That makes quite a little nucleus for an audience, andan interesting and inspiring one", at th'att 1 Of course it was warm to sit in such .•% packed house on an August nighjb,,but nobody feels just right unless there is St jam up hot time at these gatherings. The exercises opened with music by the Misses Maude and Kate Smith on the organ and violin. These renditions are always artistic and enjoyable, and; last night as always these popular musicians performed their parts! admirably. The address of welcome was made in behalf of Algona by Willie'Galbraithl It was graceful inform, smoothly s'po- ken and well suited to the occasion,; It would not be easy for the most eloquent to speak a warmer welcome to • HI* A« WUf ,\ «.*"<*.""^. v ""^i^» Algebra, Jj\ M.Reftdlng, B. 2:25—Recess. .3-l%Mfethods,Ss Reading, S; pay, Mi WHO Aftl lit AfflSflA»Gi Atdo*rA.

The response for the teachers, delivered by Miss Carrie Goodwin,iof Bjirt, was indeed a gem of oratory, earnest,, forceful, thoughtful, and abounding in good points- : ;The speaker covered the ground so admirably as to elicit »much praise: Miss Goodwin is certainly a credit to the teachers of the country! schools, whom she so well represents.; She is a type of thousands who, in our. prairie school houses, are doing work which attracts Iittl6 attention at, the time, but in which is being laid the sure foundations of an intelligent and patriotic citizenship. ; When Supt. B. F. Keed introduced the principal speaker of the evening, Prof. O. H. Baker, of Indianola, Idte U. S, Consul to Copenhagen, he was greeted with hearty applause by bis old friends and admirers. He delivered an interesting and very instructive lecture^ on Denmark and her people, customs, products, geography, religious characteristics, etc., which was listened fa throughout with close attention. Prof, Baker found the study of the Danish kingdom and people one, evidently, which he relished, though be came in contact with numerous customs, as be does in his own country, which are re? repugnant to him, His remarks on the prevalent; custom of dancing in Den* mark recalled to the minds of some of his auditors a somewhat humorous JSCT ture on "The Dance and the Dwdanfc" which they beard biro deliver while be was President of Algona College.

The drill made & hole only two inches in diameter, and so little could be told as to the structure, and curiosity will be balked for some time yet. The question as to the existence of a strata of coal has been settled, but whether it is in paying quantities can only be answered by investigation which will 'require some time, ; ' The men were not at work Monday, and there were accordingly no new developments, but a But UBLIOAN reporter who visited the place yesterday morning, learned from the men who were drilling the well, that they had been .drilling for fifteen feet, first in slate, then coal, and then coal and sand. There was no doubt of its being coal, but owing to the smallness of the hole the drill pounds it up so fine that it is impossible to tell how thick the vein is. A 4i inch hole would probably show that. New developments in relation to this cheering discovery will be looked for with interest.

The rain making [a collegedj 'arrangements at Fort Dodge are thus described by the Messenger: / For the benefit of those who are unable to see the apparatus and who may have their curiosity aroused as to what it consists of we will give a short explanation: It consists of twelve powerfully charged cells of electricity, su<h as are used in telegraph offices; these are arranged along one side of the room at the height of about ten feet. Connected by wire with these are six five gallon earthen vessels or three pairs— as two are in close connection, filled with a combination of chemicals also powerfully charged; these are no closely covered and connected with each other as to enable the vapor that arises to pass through a pipe .which .points heavenward. , When in operation the jars .become so heated that it is impossible : to lay your hand on them and the/ vapor that doea the work, rises through .this pipe to the height of from four to eight thousand feet according to the clouds; after reaching this height , it becomes cdo'led and coming in 'contact with the clouds, as it cools, forms into rain Clouds; and rain is the result, |they say). .
