BY MiLf ON STAfFf?, „ GERMANS AM wimva Much was said during the campaign regarding German voters returning to the -republican party. THE BiaKtni- tiOAtf has had little to say about it* for the reason that it was not clear to us that any general movement iti that direction had begun. But there cart no longer be a doubt about it We know that there is such a movement in our own county. And not only have Germans who were once republicans, but have of late supported democracy, returned to the republican column, btft Germans who never voted the republican ticket before did so this fall. They support tbe party on national issues—on the issues which make the party as a national organization—because they have come to believe that it- is right and has been right on those issues. They believe in sound money and in that thrift which requires that as a nation we should live within ourselves, making our goods to the fullest extent that we can, using our own raw material when we have it, and employing our own people to do the work. Those are the plain, common-sense rules which have ever controlled their business life, and by the practice of •which they have made their money. They have come to the conclusion that what is so sensible and works so well in the management of private affairs cannot be unwise or impracticable when applied to the business of the nation as one great family on the world's greatest and richest farm. the total membership of the county coii- tetitiort over that year. The great in- ef'ease in our majority over previous years was due to tiie failure of demo- rats to Vote. The total vote of the Tounty was 267 lessithnh twd year's" ago. :t ia likely that the falling off of the ipposition vote, more than the increase of the republican strength, may account for otir large majority in the state. If so, the election has contrite itecl no reason or excuse for a Change ft the ratio of representation, inaas- much as we go by Votes and not by majorities. it is a singular fancy that 110 or 126 delegates are too many to transact the business of the republican organization 'ft this county. With twice the num* aer we should have as wisely conduct- jd conventions. The state convention, with a possible 1200 delegates next year, may be somewhat boisterous, out Kossuth county does not want to be cheated out of her eleven delegates. CAPT.JENSONATBESMOiES Capt.

Bob Fitzsimmons, the noted pugilist, knocked out his sparring partner, Con Eiordan, Friday tiight with a blow on the jaw winciiresulted in his death next morning. The brutality of prize lighting has had another illustration. C. E. Cohoon had a majority of 41 votes for Judge in his own county of Palo Alto, the only county tliat he carried. The Forest City Summit is favorably impressed with thosnpervisordistrictplan. It says: Over in Kossuth county the proposition to divide the county into supervisor districts was voted upon and earned at the recent election. Onr near neighbors have set us an example that we. in WinnobjiKO county, could well afford to follow. Ihn district plan is the most satisfactory fill around. The Humboldt Independent says: "Wo don't care so much about being dead as wo do to have to be laid away in a populist winding sheet. That's what galls us." Capt. ft. 13. Jeaiisoti has disposed of his place at JBagle Lake forBes Moines residence property and will inake the Capital city his future residence, The Register gives aa entertaining account of the Uansactiou tttid a sketch of the career of Capt. •JeaiiBon Which his in> merous friends iu this county will be glad to read. The Itegister says; A very remarkable man aftd his ex* celleut wife are coming to Des Moiaes to live. The educational advantages of the city have brought them here as so many others have been brought, Capt. liobert E. Jeauson, of Swea,Koa- sutii county, is the man referred to. His wife could not endure the loneliness that lilled their great mansion on the prairie alter their two daughters had lelt home a few weeks ago to enter the Baptist college in i)es Moines. So they cuuie here and have traded their largest farm for city property ( in I)es Moines, and will come here in a tew davs to make their home iu the, house now occupied by Mr. Maruey Marsh, at Ninth and School streets. Capt. Jean- sou traded his hotne farm of 734 acres to the Iowa Loan & Trust Company lor the three houses on that corner, the northeast, tho ones occupied by Mr.Geo. 11. liiijrskttle and Mr. A. K. Clarke and the one second north from the corner, which they will at once take possession of. Other city property was included iu the deal. The farm was sold for$35 per acre. Capt.

There has been some talk oi:' late to the effect that Gov. Jackson would dc cline a reuomination, but no Iowa governor having ever set such an example tho rumor was not taken seriously, li has now, however, been confirmed ii most positive language by Gov. Jack son himself iu a letter addressed to Chairman Blythe. The governor bases bis decision on the insufficiency of the salary of the office to properly support and educate his family. The letter in full is as follows: STATE OF IOWA, EXECUTIVE OFFICE, DES MOINES, Nov. 15, 1894.—Hon. James B. Blythe, Chairman Republican State Central Committee, Mason City, Iowa.—My Dear Sir: Most sincerely are you to be congratulated on the magnificent organization of the republican forces in Iowa, and the complete and overwhelming victory which has just been won. The previous embarrassments to the party have been overcome, and by a sweeping victory ot 80,000 Iowa is again in the tore ranks of republican states. With wise, faithful and patriotic leadership, the present victory means twenty years or more of uninterrupted republican supremacy, state and national. In connection herewith I desire to emphasize what I have many times said to you personally, that the substantial compensations of a public office are not equal to the common demands. This I realize from a personal experience. This situation confronted me when good friends were urging me to be a candidate for the nomination for governor. I felt financially I could not afford it. I said so then, and my experience has confirmed my judgment as then expressed. Not unmindful of what I owed to my fellow republicans and my party, the nomination coming to me as it did, I accepted. I desire now to turn my attention to the obligations of my family, and to earn for their comfort and education what the income of a public office available for such purposes does not afford. In saying this I am not without appreciation of the great honor my party has done me, and the still greater honor expressed by the people of Iowa an my election as their chief executive. I shall not, therefore, be a candidate for renomination, and cannot accept tbe nomination should it be tendered me. I am led to this announcement now, that the republicans of the state may be appraised of my conclusion at this early date, that all who desire to be candidates may have an equally fan 1 opportunity. Yours very truly, * FRANK D, JACKSON. This letter settles the question once for all. Another candidate will have to be chosen by the next state convention. Had Gov, Jackson not positively declined, his renomination by acclamation and bis triumphant re-election would, have been positively assured. There will now be a casting about for a new man big enough for the place, and rich enough to support the dignity of the position at his own expense, ft seems to MS tbat the state sboBW pay a more liberal salary, It is $3,000, perhaps about half wbat it should be - TJbe question is not whether the state oan afford the money, Tbe really seri- ou3 question is whether tbe state can afford to reader ineligible to the goy* grjjoriblp all but rteb men. What is needed in the office is br&ini, not Tbe people gan, etsUy „,_„„.,, _ T _ ^ 'will •$be*" '"* The plurality of Goo. M. Curtis over Hayes for Congress in the second district is 430. Hayes' plurality two years ago was 7,773, so the republican gain was 8,208. Kossuth has a tax list six columns in length. The. people over them must be careless about meeting their obligations.— Emmctsburg Democrat. The Democrat should remember that Kossuth is about twice as largo as Palo Alto. The people of this.county are as thrifty as the thriftiest and look after their affairs as well as tho best. The democratic party keeps on making its record. An issue c f^uTJODlOOO more bonds is being placed. This makes a democratic increase of §100,000,000 iu the national debt. The new tariff is not taking care of the expenses. It was pretended to bo based on tho idea of revenue only, but it don't even produce the revenue. Preparations are now being made by Secretary of State McFarland for tho taking of the State census next year. Tho work will be done by the assessors, who wero elected last year, between January first and June first. This census will show that there has been a great developement and increase of population within the five years since the taking of the federal census, and in no part of the state will these changes be more noticeable than in the northwestern counties. THE DISTRICT QUESTION. Is it Obligatory Upon the Board to Make an Apportionment of the County into Supervisor Districts?—The Situation is Wholly Unlocked for.—Do the People want it? There is some speculation as to what the county board will do in the matter of districting tbe county. It is quite likely that the proposition to district would not have been submitted apart 'rom that to increase the number of members of the board to seven, and urther, it was to have been expected hat the two propositions, to increase and to district, would lose or carry to- jether. The proposition to increase is ost, and that to district is carried by he slight majority of 260 in a total vote jf 1712, wuich falls 1449 short of the ;otal number of votes cast for secretary 3f state, and which represents probn- bly less than half the voters of the county. Again, the two propositions were voted on together, an'd undoubtedly many voted to district because Jiey voted to increase and expected the two would carry together. It is a mat- ,erof speculation bow many would lave voted to district had they known that the proposition to enlarge the aoard would be voted down. So that the desires of the small proportion who voted cannot be known to the board, From the ordinary ppint of view, the argument for districting would get its strength from the fact or expectation of an increase, It is to be noted here that the law provides for the submission to popular vote of the question of increasing tbe number of super visors, but pro' vides that the districting shall be done by the board at any June meeting at its discretion, The board baa tbe power to district at any June meeting, and has tbe power to abolish districts as well. But waiving tbe question of PP§" rogative, undoubtedly tbe board, after submitting the., Question* would at* tempt tbe difficult>fK of dividing tbe county into five districts that would please tbe people of tbe county* with ' w m^ndjte Q$ * majority of tbe „,* of the county, even tbougb e4 with the other question of an crease, But wita ooly one*fo«rtb, tbe voters asteipj toy it on of their expectation tbat „, ,„ have seven supemsors, it rau$ be ™» f eftse4 that the #aj|e is BQt J& fee mym eijof S1 ~ TJw> RBNTOWPA* *w not terete any ftwaj&iQO $ pr«f$w_ftr but for the personality of Oapt. Jean sou who is a member of the Swedish royal family. He came to America many years ago, and was the manager of the A r e\v York om'ee of the American Emigrant Company when that company controlled the largest part ot the emigrant business of the country. Before he came to America he was a ship captain for a number of years,and his residence was in one of the royal palaces in Stockholm, where he held high rank. About the year 1867 he went to Kossuth county and located the colony which makes the now rich and intelligent community which makes the township of Swea. It was not until some years later that he removed permanently to the big farm himself. When he did so he built a splendid mansion out therein the midst of the prairie, on a hill overlooking Eagle Lake. It is the largest house in northwestern Iowa, and is no doubt kept up with more style and form than any other resident of that section of country has attempted. He has always kept a large retinue of servants, private instructors tor his daughters in several lines, and in fact there is as much of civilization iu that house as it was possible to have in such an isolated place. There is a large music room, with several musical instruments of the best quality, and an observatory, from which an inspiring view of the surrounding country is had, Only recently the captain spent $5,000 in an addition to his house, and made other improvements, including the painting of all the buildings on the place, which required four barrels of oil alone. He and Ms wife had intended to make their homo there as long as they lived, but they could not stand the separation from their daughters, who had been their only society, almost, for so long. . The house at Swea is eight miles from a railway station, and although filled with books, pictures and everything that goee to make up a perfect home, the society was not there, and they decided w go where it was, inasmuch as the daughters are now young ladies and have outgrown .private tutors. Eagle Lake is a beautiful little body of water and much resorted to by hunters during the game season. Captain Jeanson kept a sail boat and in other ways made the most of the natural advantages of the surround' ings. He is very much devoted to the Baptist church. One of the first things he did after he went to Swea to live was to build a Baptist church out there on the prairie, of which he has been pastor and main support. The people of Swea are not ungrateful; they appreciate what the captain bas done for them, and have shown him love and veneration, His influence has been very potential for good, and at all times has controlled in tbe settlement, prosperity and intelligence prevail among the people. 'Ane township bas always been farm ad' vance of the average in improvements and wealth; the people live well, edu* cate their children, go to church and deal honestly and vote the republican ticket almost to a man, Surely no rop could have done a better Ufewrkin this workday world than this. Heye are hundreds, of nonest, industrious, sober people given » chance in a fi§w world to do something and mafce goroe» thing of themselves tbat they could never have done in tbe land of their birtb.

The attention of the readers of THE BEPTJBLICAN is called to the fact tbat 500 millers, representing an output daily of 350,000 barrels of flour, met at the Auditorium at .Chicago, lust week to decide upon measures to curtail tne supply of flour with a view to increasing the price, or at least of maintaining it at present rates. It was decided that every one of the mills represented, which included the big Minnesota mills, must shut down six weeks during the three months beginning with December 1st. The special giving this news stated that the small custom mills could not be brought into line. Ic occurs to THE REPUBLICAN that this movement to make an artificial price on flour, in spite of the .lowest price of wheat ever known in this country, ought to be the signal for everybody swearing off on patronizing these big, trust-governed mills. Kossuth county people are very fortunate in haying two mills which can supply every pound of flour that her inhabitants can eat, and just aa good and much cheaper than any- outside flour. Thia ia not an advertisement. It does not cost any Algona mill owner a cent. We are not over-solicitous for their welfare, though we do like to see such enterprise as they are displaying in fitting up their mills rewarded by. a patronage which will keep them in operation. But what we particularly want is to have the people of this county recognize tbe advantages afforded them by these mills, and secure those advantages by giving them a prompt and liberal patronage.
