The republicans of Kossuth county will meet in Algona, in delegate convention, next Tuesday, to transact important business. The nomination of a candidate for representative in the coming general assembly will be the convention's most important work, but in addition to that the delegates to the state and senatorial conventions Will be chosen. The announced candidates for representative are S. S. Sessions, of Algona, Andy Dunlap, of Ledyardj Geo. Boyle, of Whittemore, and Samual Mayne, of Bancroft. Other names are mentioned but not as those of avowed candidates. These active candidates have been in the field for some time, and doubtless public opinion within the party is crystalizing as the day approaches for signifying a preference. There is apparently very little feeling so far, either of a local or a personal nature, but very decided preferences are likely to come to notice as the appropriate time and occasion arrive. The selection of delegates to the state and senatorial conventions will not be less important business than heretofore. Sentiment in regard to the governorship is not pronounced in this county for any candidate. All of the candidates have their friends, and the influence of locality is felt in this neighborhood, as it is, in fact, in nearly every county in the state. A delegation fairly representative of the republicans of every part of the county would be a wise result of the deliberations of Tuesday next, and the same might be said with the same propriety in retrard to the senatorial delegation. This will be the convention to make the annual selection of a county chairman, as that functory has sometimes been designated, or of a chairman of the county committee, as he sometimes, to the surprise of the members thereof, turns out to be. Mr. Haggard has held the position two years, and it is not known whether he will or will not be a candidate for another term. It is fortunate that all the primaries, or nearly all; will be held on the same day, an .arrangement which reduces outside influences to the, minimum, and leaves each pi'ecirict free to express, in the selection of delegates, the actual local sentiment. We anticipate that in the not distant future the republicans of Kossuth will adopt the primary election system in the selection of delegates and in the nomination of county candidates, and thus place themselves in line with the rest of the state in providing for the most perfect expression of the will of the republicans of the whole county, whose right it is to rule in party affairs. It seems the proper thing for a progressive party to discard its clumsy machinery as it outgrows and outlives it and to march abreast of the times *n its spirit and methods. A WI&E SETTLEMENT. The republican league convention at Cleveland, last week, took its cue from President Tracy's opening speech, in which he said: "It is our work to elect, not select, candidates, and promote, not promulgate, platforms." The convention, after much debate of financial resolutions, went back to first principles and adopted the following: "Whereas, Section 13 of the constitution of the Republican League of the United States says: 'This league shall not in any manner endeavor to influence the action of any national,, state, county or municipal convention,' the delegates of the Republican League of the United States, in convention assembled, do hereby renew their allegiance to the principles of the republican partv and pledge their best efforts for the success of the candidates of that party. Believing that this convention has no instructions from the republicans of the United States, or jurisdiction under our constitution to frame party platforms, we hereby refer'all resolutions in relation to public questions to the republican national convention of 1896, with entire confidence that its action will redound to the prosperity of our people and the continued glory and advancement of the country." As a pleasing evidence that the above was the right solution we have the silver people claiming a victory aiJd the "sound money" delegates admitt' ing a substantial advantage for themselves. We anticipate that by the time the national convention comes together, next year, the bottom will have dropped out of the SOrcent dollar movement, which will have served its pur* pose in lining up the democrat party on the wrong side of another public question. • The people of Bancroft seem to be sup* porting Mr. Mayiie for representative with great heartiness. The Register, of that place, steps on » Courles -squib with flattening effect wUen it says: The Cour^ tot, mentioning Principal Rarslou, of Wesley, as a eau4l4ate for county sqperJBten* 4eflt, spe§&! ol hijo 93 from Saaoroft> and that tfeto tpwn waste fa furnish, all the candidates this fall. Yon are jus about 5 years off Mr. Courier. Samue Mayne is Bancroft's only candidate fo: office, and Is going to receive the nomina tion and election. Prof. Barslon is a'Wes ley citizen—and a good one, too. To show how the stn'artcst newspapers are bound to make an occasional mistake the Sioux City Journal refers to ouf popu lar ex-congressman of the old "Big Sixth 1 district as "Capt. Jackson Dorr." "Jack 5 Orr was a familiar name in Iowa 24 years ago. Another state ticket has been placed In the field, that of the so-called prohibitionists. The candidate for governor 5s Frank Bacon. The convention declarec for free coinage at the'ratio of 10 to i. South Dakota's embezzling and abscond ing treasurer, Taylor, has been brought back for trial and puiiishment. It is given out that the state will be made "good but it ought to go hard with Taylor. His case will be heard in August. A feature of county convention reports which is doubtless a surprise to some, is the frequency of instructions for Harlan; indicating a disposition to give the olc man a chance. Thero are said to bo 3,000 members in the Christian Endeavor societies of the eleven counties comprising the Adams Union. They are very nice young people, too. Frank T. Piper, editor of the Sheldor Mail, is being talked of for s^iiator In his district, and the REPUBLICAN hopes to see him nominated. The Emmet county republicans have given M. K. Whelan a delegation to the representative convention, and the action was taken by ifnanimous vote. This is understood to be equivalent to Mr. "VVhel- an's nomination. The Palp Alto .Republicans at their recent convention gave Col. Ormsby an appropriate send-oft" for governor, and then they .turned tjieir attention tp home affairs and adopted this r'esolution,~presented by Ex-Seria'tor Hartshorn: . . Whereasj'Palo Alto county has not' had a member of either branch of the legislature for, twelve years, during which: period each of the other counties with which we are associated in senatorial and representative districts have been repeatpdfy represented in one or the other branch of the General Assembly, and iii'the last everyone of them had a member; Therefore, Resolved, That Palo Alto county Is entitled to a member of the next General Assembly, and that it is the sense of this convention that the delegates this day elected to the senatorial'and representative conventions should use all honorable means to secure for Palo Alto county rep? resentation in tlie coming General Assembly. : The delegates to the senatorial convention are R. A. Carr, N. E. Wilson, D. £>. Johnson, Geo. Bookman, Die Olson, A-. W, Utter, and W. G. Henry, and the Dem cratsays they are understood to be for,, M. L. Brown for senator'.' . , ... ...... Qj.;.., . iiiii:!... J)l*.>i It wilT'take 612 votesVto ridminaie-d'eah- didate for governor in the republican state convention, there being,1222 delegates:entitled to vote. The legislative question is oeing can- vased in Clay county, both as to representative and senator. The Reporter says: The question as to whether Clay county will present a candidate for state senator or not, seems to bo undecided so far as can be learned at this date. It will probably not be known before the county conveu-' tion meets, and possibly not until the senatorial cdnventlon meets to make the nomination. Mr. Funk has 11 lied the position in a very able and acceptable manner for the last eight years, which should be enough to satisfy his ambition and the interests of Di'ckinson county, "'and if a proper and satisfactory candi date can be presented it seems but fair and right that some other county, should receive the honor. The question of tho representati.yeskip in this district also complicates 1 the'-matter, and should.'be .considered and acted upon, not in the interest of any candidate, but for the interest and good of senatorial or representative district. Of course Harry Hay ward was not hanged last Friday. That was the ; day appointed for the ceremony, but an appeal was taken, from the decision of the lower court denying the motion for a new trial, and a stay of 30 days was granted. The July lihdland (Des Moin'es) is out. Its pictures delight the eye and its contents please. If its "Types of Midland Beauty" can only sustain the high standard of the July number- (a full-,p,age picture of a De,s, Moines lady), that feature will' become very popular, for everybody delijghts in beauty, "The Spirit Lake Massacre," the most tragic event in theearly history of the Northwest, is vividly described by ex-Governor Carpenter.

THE ALGONA CJSLSBRATlON. Algona's preparations for celebrating the Fourth this year are oh a scale beyond anything that has hitherto been proposed in this section. The orator will be Victor B. Dolliver, Congressman Dolliver's eloquent yoiitigel brother, and three high class bands will discourse music, the Juvenile State Band, of Emmetsburg, the Algona Military Band and the Btirfc Cornet Band. Among the popular features will be the band concert at 9 o'clock, the grand spectacular, military and industrial parade at 10. the Dolliver oration at 11, the base ball game, the balloon ascension and parachute leap by Prof. Tynan, the firemen's tournament, the games, sports, bicycle races band concert,' fireworks, illuminated statuary, tableaux, and Firemen's dance in the afternoon and evening The band concerts will be on the public square, the oration at Call's park, and the ball game and balloon ascension will be on the flat on east State street. No part of the business men's celebration will be at the fair grounds, and the business men have nothing to do with the horse races. The paifade at 10 will be an elaborate and, pleasing spectacle, and the evening program •will introduce unique features. Algona will be in holiday dress, and. the decorations will be on a grand scale. Excursion rates will be given by, all railroads from points within 200 miles. A NOVEL EXHIBITION. A unique feature of the evening's entertainment will be the exhibition of tableaux and statuary on the east front of the Court House. The following is the'list of tableaux, which will be put on under the direction of Mrs. L. M. Horton and the Misses Wallace: 1. Landing of the Pilgrims. 2.

It will be seen that .the subjects are wis.e- ly chosen to suit the patriotic occasioh) and it need not be doubted that the scenes splendidly put on. BUSINESS MEN WHO WILL BE REPRESENTED. <!

FIRE5IEN IN PARADE, There will be twenty uniformed fire* men in the .parade, and they will make fine appearance in their new clothes. The firemen are going' to have charge of the bowery dance, and great affair ;hey propose making it. * It is highly, proper that if anything is going to be de it should go to the 8r.e company trough whose heroic efforts the flames were subdued last winter. "Visitors 'row abro;a$ j$M notice several burnt spaces, but t*$ will probably not real* mhe£$jj»enj of Algona do,' that had it BbtMjn f|>r .tUe hard 8ght made the flrei»eh the vacant spaces would be larger, UP te mw there Jms been BP pertain peat ifc the parade, but that Question has'been settled, and settled tight There is no other feature of the parade that will be moio admired. The peo pie like to see the soldier boys in the procession. THE BICYCLE PARADE. There is ho doubt now" in regard to the participation of the AlgonaCyclihj Club in the parade. Guy Taylor atic others have been agitating the matter and there will be a large representation of the wheelmen, it will add an- oter pleasing feature to the procession Outside wheelmen are invited to fal inline. . . THE VOCAL PROGRAM. Some extra inspiring vocal music is on the programme for the Call's Patk exercisesi The chorus will consist of these well known singers: B. T Smith, E. W. Fuller, C. M.

Mrs. Cora Horan will be the organist. The pieces to be sung are: "Hail, Home of Liberty,' "To Thee, O Country," and "America." The audience will join in singing the national hymn. PICNIC DINNER. A more delightful place for a picnic dinner for those who can provide themselves with the luxury cannot be found in a long ways than in Call's Park. MRS. JANET McINTYRE. She Dies at 74 Years of Age—Was a Pioneer in Algona 27 Years Ago. The death of. Mrs. Janet Mclntyre, foreshadowed in the REPUBLICAN last week, occurred FridaymOrning. When stricken down on the previous; Simday afternoon it was easily seen that her death was but ,a question of , a short time, but she held to life with tenacity and survived longer than was hoped. She never regained corisciousness, but her life ebbed away by the slowest degrees. The funeral was from the residence Sunday afternoon, when a. very large gathering of old neighbors and friends attested the esteem in. which the deceased was held. There were numerous' and beautiful floral tributes.; The service? were conducted by ..Revs. Davidson, Of the Congregational and Leslie of the Episcopal church, and music was rendered by Mrs. R. H. Spencer, Miss Lillie Ranks'and Messrs. Alf. Rist and C. M. Doxser. Janet F. Logan was born in Glasgow, Scotland, March 19,1818. She was of good family and was well educated in the schools of Glasgow. She came to this country in 1854, arriving in New York on January 26th of that year, which was the day ;of her marriage to James Mclntyre, to whom she was eur gaged before the latter's departure for: America. The wedding was celebrat-* edatthe home in Broofclyrx^of :fche •rpona.'s sister,.. Mrs. -Monteijbh,, well :riown to many Algond' 'people. Mr. Mclntyre was educated for the".-min'is^ try ;n the' Presbyterian church, ;pf which the deceased was also. .a member, but abandoned the idek, and became a skilled workman, follOwing.the trade of gas fitter. Frorh Brooklyn Mr. and Mrs. Mclntyre went to Maiden, Mass., a suburb 01! Boston, and from that place, with a colony which Mr. Mclntyre helped to/organize, they went to Illinois and were among those who founded the present town of'Mai- den in that state. In 1865 the couple made an excursion into the farther west, going on to Ft. Dodge, when the wife retured. Miv Mclntyre came directly to Algona, and here he set up a hardware store, being the first man to engage in that line of trade in this place, the salesroom being a part of the present ample and comfortable residence. rThree years .later, in 1868, Mrs. Mclntyre and her two girls, Jennie and Maggie, came on and joined him. Mr. Mclntyre's death occurred seven years later, in 1875. , •: ,• .Mrs. Mclntyre will be remembered as a woman of pronounced individuality and bright intellect. She was a woman of much force of ,character,ajthough occasionally showing some temper, was of a kjndly "heart and; felt .a strong at* fochpient for her family and friends. 3ne"sist'er only of a family of eleven survives h'er. Two or three cousins, are still living in Scotland. The death of her daughter;, Mrs. Maggie Bushhell, occurred three years ago. • The latter's four children and her daughter Jennie make up the present fapily, whode'ep : ly mourn their loss. .'•'•' Bring on your eggs to the Opera House Grocejy. .' < At Studley's Pharmacy you can see an elegant new line of Wall Paper.

What your purpose t THE ENDEAVOR CONVENTION A GatheHrig of tp tic Yoiifig Meti Who Discuss Wajrs dhdMfe&hs of Work —Presidents Kinzef and Beafdsheat Make the Principal Speeches. Not for a long lime has Algona given a More sincere or heartier welcome than that accorded the young people compositig the Christian Endeavor convention of last Week. There was abtito^ dant reason for the feeling of cordial* ity in the personality of the representatives of a holy cause and agaiti in the cause itself Which brought them together. This convention was the est ever held by the Adams Union, and if We may judge from the expressions of enthusiasm, the best, There were 160 in attendance, and all the sessions Were thronged by an earnest body ot young Christian xvorkers. The ad* dress by President Kinzer, of the state organization, and that by President Beardshear, of the Agricultural College, on "The Ascent of Man," were fitting to the occasion and contributed to the convention's success. The convention owed much to the untiring efforts of Miss Nettie Burant in providing entertainment, and to Frank Tellier as the efficient musical director. A delegate who was in attendance at all the sessions of the convention, gives the REPUBLICAN this .more particular account: . The Adams Union of the Y. P. S. C. E. held its sixth annual convention iu Algona, June 18-19. The first meeting was appointed for 4 o'clock, Tuesday; ' meeting, Was l^d fay the district president,. J., .R- Hardin, of Eldora. After a song, service the delegates told in a few•'; word's- why they came to the convention. This 'meeting w^s called the ''pop corn meeting' 1 and it was one of thjB most enthusiastic held during the convention. About 125 endeavorers toOk part. "The enthusiasm and Christian fellowship shown In ;this meeting continued through the convention and were prophetic of its success. ' . : The evening meeting was opened by a song service, after which the address of welcome was given by Rev. "W...E. Davidson. This address was redolent with beautiful and helpful thoughts. The response was given by J. F. Ha'rdin- He followed the line of thought outlined by Rev. Davidson and those listening to the soul-inspiring words of this consecrated man felt that he did glory in the cross of Christ. Rev. A. D. Kinzer, of Perry, state president of the society, delivered the address of the evening. His -theme was the ; "Young People's Crusade," in which he spoke of the Sunday school lov^ment a's the first, crusade, 1 the'-W; i'M/^ais ttie seeOMv'th^MW^G-^T." ';;as the third, the Y. M. C. A.'as : <"ttie' fpurtlrandtheY.P. S.'C. E. as the fifth. He tlien gave a history of the hristian Endeavor movement. 'There were many of his hearers who had never before known the breadth and scope of the work of the young people of the church-. Nothing could have jeen more fitting .than this, addressl Even those who had doubted the wisdom of the:Christian Endeavor movement must have been impressed by the implicit faith placed in it by so grand a^Christian man as Pres. Kinzer. The devotional meeting Wednesday morning was led by Rev. Kennedy, of the Algona Methodist church. iThe first paper was read by .Miss L. Alice Bingham, of Estherville, : on Junior Work." It was full of enthusiasm and fine methods for work. By. those who were especially interested- n the juniors it was ^considered to be orieof'the most helpful papers on the program, A. M. Shaw, of Algona, discussed the- pro.blem of "Outlying Districts." This was tme Of the finest and most practical papers read. It is to be hoped' that those present will npt allow the enthusiasm aroused by this paper to. abate until something betper than base ball games and and. excursions are provided for Sunday amusements. Another very interesting part of the' program was the reports of the district in<l county secretaries. x A growth was shown which should inspire the mem- s Of the Adams union to redouble ;heir efforts for "next year. AH consecrated endeavorers looked for,ward to the, discussion of "Social Amusements"! by Rev, C. P. Boardman of Humtioldt with hope for help, Their anticipations were more than realized, for it was an ideal address, • All the papers read ^yere exception' ally gpod, but limited time and space prevents their mention. The last paper was read by H. R,' Core of Ft. Dodge and it was a fitting clofce to so gr#nd a feast of good things, 3i| topic was "Soul Winning" and hjs jutning words will never be forgotten by those who beard them, The address of the evening -was de- ivered President W. M. Beardshear, ot Ames. It was the crowing point of the Convention, After the address a circle was formed around the church and the grand old song "Blest be the Tie" was sung, the benediptloR was then pronounced and the convention! for J895 was closed. Iti was the largest and one of the, most successful conventions eyer held "n this district. One bunded and fif« ;y delegates were registered during the session. To Ejnmetsbuyg belongs the glory ot sending the largest delegation. The president for the co$jng,year is F, A- garrison,, of Ft;. Dodge, and the ecretary, is, Miss Aita 'Turner, $t wetgburg.

BRICK the Butht District on State Street to be Rebuilt Etttite in Brick— Work will Begin July gth. It has been known for a week that a two-front brick was assured for the burnt district, but not until Monday could it be announced that the entire burnt space would be built up. This consummation waited on the transfer of one of the lots, owned by Lewis H. Smith, to Ambrose A. Call. The lot in question adjoins Mr. Call's lot on the west, and its purclmse enables him to- put up a double front in the center Theo. Chrischilles building on the east and Mr. Purvis on the West. Nothing can be said in regard to the block, further than that the front will be of pressed brick. It is a noticeable thing,. however, that no builder allows any previously erected structure to "lay over" his. The town is to be congratulated. NORMAL NIGHT. Pleasing Commencement Exercises at Call's Opera House of the Northern Iowa Normal and Commercial School. The Northern Iowa Normal exercises Thursday evening were of a high order from beginning to ^nd and altogether-made a fitting conclusion to the most successful year the institution has known. The piano solo by M.iss;Lutie Wallace and the Vocal solos by Dr. Rist and Miss Zoa •> artman,each were gems of artistic execution, and the addresses 'by Professors Johnson and Lilly were brief but well put. The lecture by President Beardsheai% of the' Iowa Agricultural College, was one of ?reat merit. The class roll was as follows: Scientific course—Howard Wallace, Will Galbraith; Normal—Helen Eddy, Francis Kreith, Olive Salisbury,, Bessie Dodge; Commercial — W. E. Kain, Burton E.
