There is need of a revival of zeal in behalf of a patriotic observance of the great anniversary of the nation. One hundred and nineteen years ago, with insignificant numbers and more insignificant resources, but with a mighty faith in the principles of liberty, and a dauntless courage behind that faith, om- forefathers proclaimed a political creed which has wrought since that day as a revolutionary force extending to every civilized country in the world. There is no measuring the influence of the Declaration of Independence. That declaration on paper, however, would have been a nullity had there not been the declaration of heroic deeds as well. There could have been no bursting forth of such a flower of liberty from the hearts of ignoble men. We have to celebrate a great political event, signalizing a new em in the elevation and the liberation of mankind, and we have also to celebrate the heroism, the patriotism of Washington and his compeers, who staked their lives, their fortunes and their honor upon the truth they declaied and the venture they took in behalf of their country. If men would seek to mark as a great day and one to be hallowed that which was in truth the greatest day for liberty in modern times, and if they would cherish in their memories and exalt in the hearing of their children that most perfect type of patriotism which made it such, there is reason for marking our glorious natal day with such demonstrations as never marked the coronation of any heriditary monarch. If men would applaud patriotism this is their greatest occasion, for the. world has not seen a purer patriotism. There have been wonderful changes since 1876, and it is pertinent to ask if as a people we have not strayed from the paths of our fathers. * * * If that is the truth it is all the more desirable that we take an occasional measure of the public man of the eighteenth century. We may differ in regard to the monetary standard with the assurance 'that whatever view ;prevails, the nation is able to survive the shock and' disaster even of a changed measure of,money-values. ^The greater menace comes with new standards of patriotism, new tests or no tests of qualification in aspirants to public office, and new ideas of individual responsibility in politics. * * * Al Adams, of the .Humboldt Inde-,;. pendent, who has served a couple off terms as county treasurer, and wht>: has thus been in, a position tO; know^ what bad work in an assessor's office-' means in loss of time, loss of money to tax payers and loss of temper all around, has this vigorous talk on "one thing that needs reforming:" There is one thing that needs reforming in our county management. That is, in the matter of the assessor .and his fees. We had occasion not long ago to go through the assessor's books of this conn-, ty. In many cases the work done is simply robbery of the tax payers, In one case there was not a correct page in the.; whole book. Of course the auditor wilb have everything in the book to fix all over/ and make in fact a new assessment. In thi i case we found a difference of over $3,000 on one page. Out of all the books returned there are not five correct in the whole lot. If the townships will not see that they elect competent men for this office tho county board ought to employ a correction clerk to correct the evident errors In the books and take his pay out pi the bills rendered by the assessor and only allow an assessor's bill after the books have been approved. It is a shame. We know of one property holder who is hot over the repeal of the silver coinage act because of the loss that ho figures out to himself, who would have lost more in one year by the errors of his township asses-, sor than he could have lost in three if his financial tlieory is correct. Our county board of supervisors ought to make an investigation into this branch of their business and see what they are doing. IhO; assessors will do their work if they have to. wtee'fofeth'onght-. His attempt to end his sorrows bV throat-cutting having' failed, the United States authorities have closed his bank and placed Him under arrest for embezzlement and forgery. JHjSs defalcation is placed 'in'the neighboflidod of ?00, Ooo, a large portion of which.comes out of the savings deposits of the poorer people of the community. Whiskey r.nd speculation are the influences charged by the press reports with.,responsibility for the wreck'. The Denison Review speaks strongly for the reno&ination:pf Geo. W. Perkins for railroad commias'ioner. It says: •. lion. Goo. W. Perkins is a candidate .for nomination to a sucgnd term as Iowa State Railway Commissioner. The repub Mean owes him innch. In what plight ' party \vouicl we have ipeen ha'd he sided with the outgoing DemOcl-a'tic commissioner, Peter Dey? Instead of having peace we should be torn .by fierco. agitation. Mr. Perkins is an honorable arid conservative main and his unanimous nomination Is generally anticipated. We are sure that Craw^ford county lias ho other candidate. The last The south is not all for free silver. Kentucky repftb'licaii convention, week, declared: We are opposed to the free, unlimited coinage of silver, believing that it would involve the couli'f-ry in financial ruin. We beliuvo in a sound currency and in the use of both gold and silver for coinage, provided always that a dollar in one is made primarily as valuable as a dollar in another. Interest rates at the present timoarenot such as would indicate a scarcity of money in circulation. The Osccola supervisors last week voted J:o refund the county's outstanding bondi at 4K per cent, for twenty years. The Cleveland World, edited by Robert P. Porter, says of Allison :.. "Up from the mighty empire of the west the prcsidetial boom of William B. A li- son, of Iowa, comes like a conquering giant, a Colossus in brains, courage and patriotism. , , . "It typifies the vigor, independence and statesmanship of American manhood, and represents the exhaustless energies which have molded the tremendous west into lusty commonwealths and added star after star to the Hag of the Union. . "Trained in tiie duties of statecraft, backed by a long record of useful and patriotic services in behalf of his country, and an American of Americans, the Iowa leader is one whose nomination •jvou i ld ; , arouse the party into enthusiastic, - mony and sound an advance to -new* "arid honorable 'Conquests for the republican cause. :' '• . . - , PREPARING FOR THE'JAY.

The District Cofiventic-ri of the Christian .Endeavor Society in Algona Next Week, Sam Clar)c, of the Keokuk Gate City, gets down to solid fact when he says: - It is.noticeable that the free silverites invariably in some point in, their- discus-, sion try to make their policy '.tqna'ble, by claiming for it that it is a method of bimetallism, yet there is not a word of truth in that claim.

' There was something of a contest in the Polk county primaries over the governorship between tho friends of Drake and McFarland. The convention was held on Saturday and Drake had 34J|delegates out of 40, the odd six being for McFarland. President Cleveland has appointed Attorney General Olney to succeed Gen. Greshani as secretary of state, and Olney's place has been filled by tho choice of Judge Judson Harmon, of Cincinnati. The latter has a record for ability and success in his own state, but has no national reputation. • Frank W. Bieknell, for live years city editor of the POS Moinos Register, has re? signed that position to accept the superin^ tendency of the census bureau in the office of the secretary of state.

Algoua, June 6, 1895. The preparations for the appropriate celebration of the Fourth have been nearly completed during the week, so far as the chief attractions are concerned, and it is now settled that we are to have three fine bands, the Algona Military Band, the Emmetsburg State Juvenile Band, and the Burt Band. Algona- will not be outdone in the matter of music by any town in the state. Mr. Dolliver as the orator of the day Will draw an immense crowd to Algona and what is an equally important consideration, he will meet the expectations of those who come to listen to .him. It has been settled, too, that we are to have the ball game in the afternoon, the definite agreement having'been entered into between the Algona club and the committee. The balloon ascension and parachute leap have also been settled ujjon, and the balloon is here. The ascent and perilous leap will be made by Ed M. Tynan, who was employed in that capacity by Brunson's Uncle 'Tom's Cabin company. The ascent will" be made from the base ball 'grounds -between the hours of 2 and 3' o'clock, probably, and it,will be a feature..not to be missed by anyone. / ' •••••-.

A HARMONIOUS MEBf ING. There Was quite a large attendance of township committeemen and other republicans at the offibe of Chairman llaggard Saturday afternoon; They .had been called together by the chair-, toan to consult and decide regarding the time of holding the county conveh* tion, as well as to settle what business should be brought before that convention, The candidates for representa-* tive present were S. S. Sessions, Andy Dunlap, Geo, E. Boyle and Samuel Mayue, and if they had any plans they either kept them to themselves or . else they were all playing the same game. The time 01: holding the convention was well canvassed, and by unanimous consent the second of July was decided upon. With equal unanimity it was arranged that the call should recommend Saturday, June 29, as the day for holding the caucuses. .Then the question of the business program came up, and on motion of Clayton Hutchins,of Irvington, it was voted that the delegations to the state and senatorial conventions should be chosen and the' candidate for representative, nbiniriftic. ed. There was no contrary opin.i.op expressed, and the committee adjourned.; This brings'politics to the.fro^it, and : Mrs. Frank Jbeaiy t the Wife of aft. ei-chftnfc, was the guesfc. cipated that the attendance at'- Arg will reach 200 delegates; and' Visitors,' and free entertainment will, -be • given to all who .come.
