The Senatorial convention of the 47th Senatorial district will meet at Emmetsburg. Iowa, August 0. 1805. ut 11:00 o'clock, a. m.. for the purpose of putting in nomination a candidate for the senate to succeed Hon. A. B. Funk. The counties composing the district will be entitled to delegates as follows : Clay ...................................... 8 Dickinson ................................. 5 Emmet ..................................... 6 Kossuth .................................. H Coin, for Kossuth Co. THE SILVER DEBATE. The debate between tlorr and Harvey began on Tuesday of last week, and was kept up every day except Friday. It was resumed Monday and will be carried on until the ten days of wordy warfare have been spent. The first four days may fairly be said to have been given up to irrelevant matters, of which the unit of value and the "crime of 1873" were the chief heads of the debate. This was because these topics take up the first section of "Coin's Financial School," and the statements and arguments of that book are the agreed battle ground. While these matters are of no importance when we come fo determine what is the best policy to adopt in a different situation from that existing in 1785, or or 1792, or 1873, they have a historical interest and an interest derived from their having been matter for long continued controversy. For the latter reasons, and because many have fallen in with the notion that the matters in dispute have some remote connection with the existing financial question, the reports have been read daily by thousands who could not be induced to follow a debate of equal length on any other subject. The things brought out in the debate so far which are new are few. Of these Mr. Horr has contributed his share. The fact of the fixing of a, unit of value in 1785 was apparently a contribution to bis opponent's fund of information. The whole ground of demonetization was fought over as two dogs fight for a bone, the parallel extending to frequent exhibitions of temper. A'great share of Mr. Harvey's effort was to establish his claim of widespread and ever pres- • ent .wickedness in official life, and par- ''ticulai'iy in congress in 1873. Hiswhole- • sale indictments of public men called • out some of Mr. Horr's most effective speeches. , The discussion will be read with admiration for the ability of both of the "principal disputants 1 ' in the great financial debating school. The REPUBLICAN would like to have everybody read both sides, and as an encouragement to such as may feel disposed to do so the American Press Association's three-column abstract of each day's debate will appear in its columns. Reports of the first two days' debates will be found in this paper. There was a deadlock in the republican convention of the 49th senatorial district, held at Sibley last week, which it took 1,035 ballots to break, when Henry Hospers, of Sioux county, was nominated. Hospers, Piper, Davidson and Lister were candidates and had the votes of their own counties. Hospers is a Hollander who founded a flourishing colony of his people near Orange City. He was chairman of the Sioux county board of supervisors for sixteen years and has served in the lower house of the legislature two terms. A different kind of dead lock showed' up in , the Hmnboldt and Pocahontas representative district convention, which was.held at Rolfe last week. Each of the counties had an equal number of votes, and Hum- bqldt cast her eight for Parley Finch, the incumbent, while Pocahontas scattered honors with a free hand, voting in succession for Captain Joseph'Mallison, P. C. Barron, F. L, Dinsmore, W. C. Ralston, F. C. Gilchrist, C. A. Grant, Hon. Robert Struthers, L. C. Thornton, W. D. McEwen, B. L. Allen, Anson Wells and Alex McEwen. Up to last reports no nomination had been made. «• The experience of the republican convention in the 49th senatorial district will be warning enough to the delegates to our own senatorial convention to go to that meeting prepared for a long absence. Capt. J. F. Merry, of Manches.ter, attended the meeting of the fourth district editors aVjJu'buciue, last,wee.k,. and being called out on the advertising question he said: Fifteen years of experience in advertising the 'passenger department of the Illinois Central railway prompts me tosaythat no medium of advertising is so potent as the local newspapers and I would rather have ten lines of locals in ten papers at 10 cents per line than 10,000 posters, flyers or dodgers at S10 per 100. Jn other words he regarded §10 invested in locals of more real value than 8100 in posters. The Humboldt Independent has resurrected the Iowa democratic financial plank of 1893 and prints it under the head of "Our Platform." This plank is not, as we interpret it into English, very different from the accepted republican doctrine, except that it calls for free coinage of both gold and silver without discrimin'ation, but at their commercial ratio rather /'than the ratio of 10 to J. This would double tjie si?e of ou,r silver dollars, put it is' ifat' worth while to stop and talk about th.»t »ld plank. It will be discarded." probably, Of course, the present liquor law is no- enforced everywhere in Iowa. The prohibitory law was not. No license law is No liquor law that ever was devised has been or will be enforced to the letter This fact might as well be admitted on al sides, and a world of useless wrangling and disputation will be avoided.—8. C Journal. While the Journal is on this subject why not go the truth of the whole matter and admit that no law whatever, human or divine, ever was strictly enforced, or ever will be? Ex-Senator Cassatt, whose attempted suicide and bank crookedness have kept him before the public for some months, has been sentenced to nine .years in the Anarnosa penitentiary. The federal court was the scene of his trial, and the presiding judge, Woolson, was formerly in the state senate with Cassatt and occupied a seat close to his. They were good friends at that timn. and naturally Judge Woolson found it a sad and embarrassing duty to discharge when sentence had to be passed. The republican senatorial convention for this district will come olV at Emmetsburg on Tuesday, August (5th. There is no light on the outcome, but Kossuth will make a stiff tight for A. D. Clarke. He will be backed with a fine delegation. The Daily Beacon criticises Sam Joues' sermons mildly and concludes that "True men will bid him God speed, and bear with his weaknesses, as we must bear with weaknesses every wnere." The question is whether Sam is going to relish this style of remark. Will he care to have his brilliant performances commended to the charity of the indulgent? Must he come to this? It is now conceded that a mistake of 55 votes was made in the count of Harlan's votes on the second ballot. On that'ballot Drake was given 425 votes, and Harlan's vote was reported as 305, whereas it actually was 300. Drake's gain was 59, and Harlau's gain was 112, and it placed him within G5 votes of Drake. Had it been known that Harlan had made a gain of 112 to Drake's 59, and that a gain of equal numbers on the next ballot would have placed him even with Drake, it might have made the difference of a nomination in his favor. The error was discovered and its correction demanded on the floor of the convention, but chairman Young disposed of the point, by stating that the footings of the three clerks agreed exactly and that anyway the next ballot would right any error that might have been made. The gag applied .by Mr. Young was an unfortunate incident of a convention generally well conducted. It'is" perhaps too much to believe that this • miscount nominated Drake, but certainly it assisted in it. The influence on a convention of phenomenal gains for any candidate is something surprising to the ' unsophisticated. The tories have captured the British parliament by gains nearly as sweeping as those by which, in our own country, -the republicans overwhelmed the democrats in the congressional elections of last year. Their majority will be 100 or more. It is a part of the forecast that bimetallism has some chance for adoption by the new government. It will be a bimetallism, however, by international agreement, if it comes. The British statesman is not a bit inclined to take risks in finance. THE KOBMAL'S HEW BLOOD.

Arrangements were definitely concluded last week whereby Mi-. D. Samuels, of Des Moines, will become the business manager of the normal on the first of August. Mr. Samuels is a young man of splendid organizing and managing abilities, whose experience of eight years in the business Conduct of educational institutions will give him a peculiar advantage in the performance of the duties which he is to assume. He will have no part whatever, as the BEFUBLICAN is informed <, in the work of instruction!, but will give all his time and energies to the promotion of the Normal's business success. On the other hand. Prof. Lilly will not be embarrassed in his work of teaching by the necessity of looking after the business end of the institution. All his time will be given to superintendence and instruction, an arrangement which will insure the best results. This division of labor is something which Prof. Lilly has for some time liad in contemplation, and naturally lie is highly pleased with the success of his plans. He expects that the coming year will be the greatest the school has ver had. He believes it will be the greatest and best in the educational opportunities it will afford, and greatest in the number who will attend. Inquiries are already coming in which show that the young people of Northwestern Iowa have their faces set for Algona. >' The faculty for the coming year will be a strong one. A recent addition is Miss Anna Hamilton, of Algona, who will have charge of the department of free hand drawing. Improvements and additions to the ibrary and apparatus are the order of .he day now. .'When the fall term be- fins a librarian will be appointed. So :ar af the citizens of Algona are con- :erned, the order of the day will have .0. be a timely provision for rooms, and board for the increased attendance suie to show up in September.

He mil, he;jau,bynor to him, self and. his constituency- M. Cowan Takes the Contract.', •.•'.i*_" Begins Work Monday Morning^,. ,. The contract for building the 1 '-hew vaults-for the Clerk and Auditor at the Court House was let to that reliable and veteran builder, J. M. Cowan. He takes the job for §1805 and furnishes all the material. The excavation .iwas begun Monday morning. The dimensions of the double vault on the'out- side are to be 20x24 feet. The foundations are to go down to the depth of the court house basement and are to be of solid stone and concrete. The exterior walls are to be two feet wide, and; the middle partition wall is to be one foot in width. The walls above ground are to be of brick. A large window With iron shutters, is to go in the west 'end of each vault. The vaults inside will each be 7i feet wide, 22 feet long and 12 feet high. The vault doors of , the clerk's and auditor's offices are to'be bricked up, and entrances provided to the vaults from the treasurer's and recorder's office respectively, and a window is to go into the . west side of the vault now connected with the auditor's office. The arrangement will thus largely increase the vault room in the auditor's, clerk's, treasurer's and recorder's offices. The north windo\v in the auditor's office will have to be moved to the south, as the space it now occupies will be covered by the new structure. It is understood that the fittings of the two new vaults will be supplied by the St. Louis Art Metallic Company, including the roller shelving and the boxes and patent filing cases. The expense of the inside furnishings will probably be in the neighborhood of $1500, so that the total cost of the improvement will be not far .from $3300, ROASTS THE EXPRESS; Ed.

TWO GOOD ONES. per A Hasty Visit to a Couple of Nearby Farms. In company with J. W. Spurbeck the editor enjoyed a ride out to the fine farms of W. H. Clark and Alderman Wm. K. Ferguson Saturday evening. There is much to interest the visitor to one of these well managed farms. Mr. Clark has a very complete and satis factory dairy arrangement, with an Alpha separator run by tread powei located in a building some rods distant and transmitted by cable. Mr. Clark's big Jersey bull works the tread mil] which separates the cream, churns the butter and pumps the water. Mr. Clark has one of the finest dairy herds in the county, the animals being thoroughbred or high grade Jerseys. His exhibit in the Fourth of July parade was a center of attraction, and re- eived no end of admiring comment. Mr. Ferguson does not appear to lave any specialty in his farming. He has made a choice of Red Polled cattle and has some very creditable full blood stock of that breed, and proposes to jrade up to a high notch. In handing his cattle and hogs he is makin use of considerable fencing. A fee mill and grain elevator, with tread jower, is an important adjunct in his 'arming. He is not one of those farmers who are, not 'watching the wheat market and nervously studying Coin on the relation of silver prices to wheat prices. The wheat goes through the mill, along with such other grain as grinding better fits for consumption on ;he farm. Mr. Ferguson's buildings, his water supply and his feeding and jasturing arrangements show that he las not given all his thought to bank- ng. They show rare practical judge- ment and knowledge of farm needs. Mr. Ferguson's farm is conducted by 3ert Forbes, a young man of . pushing endency, who is making the most of the farm and keeping, everything; in good shape. . •• i, - •: i «,- : POINT is WEL£ TAikEN.;' ,V The Spencer Reporter says: •' The Algona REPUBLICAN of the 10th inst. credits our article on. the proceedings of the Clay county convention to the Newsi We presume the News will call the REPUBLICAN to order.
