SUBSCRIPTION RATES: One Year, in Advance Six Months Three Months 75 TOPICS. The latest move of the demagog Sovereign, the head of the Knights of Labor, is to declare a boycott on the national banks. Over 200 million dollars of national bank notes were in circulation at last accounts, or approximately one-eighth of all the money inchcula- tion in the United States. It amounted to about S3 per capita Of our entire population, and nearly four times all the standard silver dollars in circulation, and every dollar of it is as good as gold and much handier to use. If demagog Sovereign were allowed to dictate 'as he would like all Ibis money would be thrown out of circulation, and a contraction be effected which would mean disaster to business, which in turn would visit its first and worst consequences upon the. laboring men whom an inscrutible providence suffers him to represent. There are men in every land who choose for selfish reasons to appeal to prejudice and passion, relying upon dense ignorance and malignant hatred of legitimate institutions and investments, but it seems as though this country has more than her in a Central American Republic (Honduras), is told by Richard Harding Davis fh Harper's Weekly for Aug. 3, Almost complete returns of the parliamentary elections give the tortes a clean majority of 154, the largest majority given to any ministry within the century. Dei? Moines is excited over the outcome of the census recapitulation of that city's population, showing only 57,000 when 85,000 was what was first estimated. The Emmetsburg Reporter says that Medium Lake Is a thing of the past so far as the present indicates. It is completely dry and the greater share is grown up to coarse grass and is being used as a pasture. The tall weeds save the cows the extra exertion of switceing to keep the flies off.

DRAKE'S RAILROAD WORK, Waterloo Courier: There is no need whatever of apologizing for the connection of Geu. Drake with the rail way interests. His railroad work has always been for the advantage of the people rather than the corporations. A gentleman who was formerly in bUsi* ness in Centerville, but is now a resident of Des Moines, informed the writer that he well remembered the time when Gen. Drake's road from Keokuk reached Centerville. Up to that time freight rates to that place had been very high, but as soon as this road was in operation the rates were re- share. Such f ulminations as this fit in well with Harvey's onslaught upon the banking system in the debate in which civilation makes its "last stand." * * * As the time approaches for the meeting of the democratic state convention the opinion prevails that the silver rnen< who it was first .supposed would rule it with a high hand, will be outnumbered and squelched, and a hard and well seasoned money plank after the liking of the fathers commended to their digestion. Whether this seemingly miraculous illumination and conversion has resulted from a perusal of the great debate in Chicago is a questipn. It is quite probable that it lias at least been read on the wall that the silver movement has received something of a check. It is expected that the convention, 'after an obsequious salute- to Cleveland, will put its enthusiasm into an appeal to the people of Iowa to do something more substantial for the saloon. , * * * Tlae.Har,y,ey-Horr.debate-;came to a close Monday.' It -'aid', riot add anything oHmportance to the sum of the world's financial knowledge. Its value has beetyjn the marshalling of facts by masters in debate, and in keeping the public mind upon a very important question. The debate has been a good thing in giving some people, who never " go oiit of their way to hear the other fellow, a new sensation in reading both sides of the question or the option of skipping some very interesting reading. When the debate is put in permanent form, however, it should be well indexed, for the reason that not half of the matter which Mr. Harvey has dragged in has any relevance to his proposition that the United States should at once, and independently of the rest of mankind, start out upon the free and unlimited coinage of silver dollars worth intrinsically only half as much as the dollars now circulating. duced one-half. Gen. Drake kept the rates down, and all the result was that his line did three-fourths of the freight business of Appanoose county in spite of the fact that the Bock Island and the "Q" both had branches in the county. The same gentleman also stated that Gen. Drake has built 400 miles of railway since the war, and no line that he built ever joined a pool or traffic association as long as it was under his control. ' , Hon. G. W. Perkins, member 9f the state board of railroad commissioners, stated to the writer that Gen. Drake did not join with the other roads in asking the commission to raise freight rates last fall, and that he opposed it. "It isn't an increase in rates we want, but an increase in business," was his answer when approached upon the subject. ' . A prominent railroad man who is connected with the traffic department of the Rock Island road, stated Drake was the worst man for them to get along with in the business. They could not get him to go into any scheme for raising rates, ho matter how plausible their arguments .were in favor of such action. . • ' • • Gen. Drake is undoubtedly a man of the people. He has made money, but it has been acquired honestly, and the amount of his quiet donations for charitable and benevolent purposes -would, undoubtedly put to shame the boasted munificence of many associations with high sounding but illusive titles.

A Twenty Year Franchise, With feserhp* tion from Taxation and & City Light* ing Goritta'ct at $goo a ¥e4r. A month ago the REPTBLIOAN stated Judge Qtiarton's intention to submit a proposition to the council looking towards the establishment of ah electric lighting plant The proposition did not go before the city fathers when efr pected, but it was on file when they met Saturday night. The proposition is in shape of an ordinance drafted in type writer and ready for passage, and the corporation seeking the franchise is named as the Algona Light and Power Company. The ordinance is quite letigthy> but its main provisions are for a franchise, not to be exclusive, to run for twenty years; a contract with the city to furnish it not less than 12 arc lights for not less than five years, at $72 each per year, or a total of $864 per year; exemption from taxation for the plant: free use of the city water for engine and boiler; a maximum rate of 1 per cent, per hour for 16 candle power incandescent lights for private parties, and a circuit from twiiight till 1 a. m. The ordinance is quite lengthy. No action has been taken on it so far. The name of Theo. Chrischilles is the only one given in the ordinance. Whether there has been any company organized and incorporated as yet is not known. Mr. Chrischilles intimates that he has no intention of taking an active part in the runnii g of an electric lightljusiness. The particulars and details will likely be given to the public before any action is taken. In case the council shall pass the ordinance as desired, the question of a franchise will come up and be voted on by the electors of the city, and a majority, vote will be required to decide.

Lawrence Butler, the Fentou. mail carrier, was in town • the last .of the week to see what could be done to avenge an indignity to-his person offered by a farmer on his route. ; As the story comes to the REPUBLICAN, Butler was driving by a grain field where a gang of men were at work haryest- ' — The grain grew close to the, tracking and the binder., had left strung along in the road. the bundles o ___ _ After,Butler ha^. got clear by the farmer : p,ame after him' pell, mell, - accusing him .of driving over his* bundles, and on his stopping to discuss'the agricultural situation and cuss the agriculturist he was surprised and paralyzed by the instant inauguration of belligerent oper- n 4-;x«n 4-Vio +'avmoi» nmnincr vicrht*. • fm Justice Taylor Creates; a Sensation and Shows Up a New Machine.—-Ah EpochfMaking Invention, . A. good deal of curiosity was aroused Saturday afternoon by the appearance on State street of Justice F, M. Taylor, mounted on some kind of a machine that npbpdy seemed to know anything about, the same being drawn by a stout pair of horses, over the Movements of which the dispenser of justice wielded a control which rendered their presence on the crowded thorough fare no great menace to the public safety if you kept strictly out of the way. A soap peddler on the corner bad been bawling like an escaped lunatic for ten minutes, but the moment Justice Taylor and outfit appeared on the scene thevgotthe attention of everybody, and those who investigated found that the machine was one of theMcCormick corn harvesters. This machine has been used long enough now so that there is no doubt about its being a complete success. It is pulled by one pair of horses, and one man drives and operates the machine, and another shocks the bundles, which are dropped just as a binder drops wheat. About seven to ten acres can be harvested in a day, and the machine costs $135, we believe. A man who raises corn exten* sively will save enough.every year on corn stalks to pay interest, and wear and tear on several of these muchjnes. Farmer's are buying them already. In fact, the Wigwam has sold thirteen pf them already this year, and the time for using them is yet spme time dist- The Wigwam, by the way, is making a great record for its heavy business. It has sold forty McCormick self -binders this season, and every description of machinery in proportion. Its- sales of binders has only been equalled by one firm in the twenty counties comprising the Albert Lea district. DIAMONDS IN HER GRIP.

Heed, who has not so far indicated how much of a candidate he is going to be in this cam* paicn, and thus it must appear to the most superficial, is not in a position to take up anybody's fight, nor would it be disposed to depart from its rule of non-interference were its feeling of § ood Will less widely distributed, The eld is open, the competitors are wor- thv, and the schools will be left in competent and worthy hands, no matter which man gets the much sought job, The senatorial convention comes off at Emmetsburg next Tuesday, and a very interesting convention it will be. The frequency of dead-locked lesjisla-.. tive conventions this season suggests 1 how easily a more or less dead-lock may be brought about. There are four candidates, and they will go into the convention with a show of voting strength definitely known, as follows:. A. >D. Clarke, Kossuth, 11 votes; A. B. Funk, Dickinson and Emmet, 11 votes; Ackley Hubbard, Clay, 8'votes, and M. L. Brown, Palo Alto, 7 votes. Mr. Brown will have the always appreciated advantage of the holding of the convention in his own town. He is very, popular among those who know him best, andnO doubt the enthusiasm of his neighbors will be felt'in the c'onyen- tion. The result; however, is as much in doubt as it has been heretofore.

The democratic county convention will be held at the court house this afternoon, and the only stated business is the election of the several delegations. It has been' thought best to continue the old custom of sending delegates, so that when .the name of Kossuth county is called in a democratic convention there shall be no awkward pause, but a deep-toned, resonant and hearty response. The KEPUB- UCAN would like to give its readers a full report, but has decided not to hold its forms. This decision has been reached after consulting the party and ascertaining that there is not going to be any fight between the administration and anti-administration wings thereof such as has heretofore been counted on as a tolerably certain thing. The inside fact turns out to be that there has been a collapse all along the silver line. The administration forces, on the other hand, have determined to be magnaminous, and not exclude the 10 to 1 democrats from voting the ticket. No resolutions, therefore, will be adopted or submitted on than question, and probably none on any. We fear it will be a very dull convention. IOWA WSATHER AND CROPS. Conditions Highly Favorable To Growing " Crops. CENTRAL STATION, DES MOINES, IA. JULY 30, 1895: The average temperature of the past week was about normal. pearly all sections of the state have had sufficient rainfall for present needs, and considerable damage has been caused by severe local storms, accompanied by wind and hail. On the whole, however, the week has been highly favorable for the growing crops, and-f<d- harvesting and threshing the ripened small grain. The oats harvest is about completed and threshing is in progress, with many reports of phenomenally heavy yields. The cuit- ting of spring wheat is. in progress, and some early fields of flax are ready fpr harvest. . .. , , Corn is steadily maintaining its lead and bids fair to break all previous records in the districts where the rainfall has been ample. Potatoes and the minor crops are doing well. ations, the farmer coming right for him and siezing hold of his shirt collar, which he-gave such a powerful yank that the garment, shirt, collar and belongings, came off over his head like a rabbit skin and he was left in a condition, so far as appearances went, not the most presentable for a representative of Uncle Sam. Just then Butler remembered his mission as an official of the United States, and the motto of the Star route service, "Security, Certainty and Celerity," and giving his nag a cut with the whip he left the attacking party discomfited in the rear. To maintriin the statu quo Butler whipped out his trusty gun and covered the belligerent agriculturist, while an impromptu discussion, briefer but not less interesting than the Horr-Harvey debate, was carried on, without effect in changing the sentiments with which each regarded the other. Butler finally moved on, and when at a safe distance robed himself in his coat, which he buttoned and pinned to the chin, and finding that his pants had miraculously been preserved intact, he made the rest of the journey, an object of some suspicion and curiosity, but Without {further molestation. When he presented the case to county attorney Raymond and showed him diagrams he was advised to let matters drop and try to forget the occurence, The Wesley Reporter thinks "Harvey is having a Horr-able time with the New York Tribune man." The llumboldt Independent says, in ro- gard to the curfew, which a contemporary says is "played out:" "Well, there is one thing sure; it ought not to be played out. There are plenty of cases in these small towns which goes to prove that a curfew bell might have saved many a weeping mother her tears and many a woman all that was in the world for Uer." The republican convention report in the Humboldt-?oca.hontas district is being run in the papers as a continued story. JHuuiholdt has had the naming of the man two terms, and this year Pocahontas sot out to furnish the candidate. Each county has the same number of votes.

Saturday tvening Mrs. Hannah Hutchinson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T, H. Lantry, and Mrs, Winnie Sterzbacb were down at the river, just below the mill, and with them were Mrs, Huteh- inson's boy Balph, some ten years old, and Cleve Lantry, bis uncle, about the same age, The boys were playing at the river side, just at the tord, and the ladies were looking on, while the boys; finding a plank, floated it out and got. on, and where having great fun, the. ladies noticed they were getting be;? yond their depth and called to them to come in, They became frightened at this and Baiph fell off the plank and finding that he could not touch bottom cried for help. Mrs, Sterzbach called 0, D. koomis, the miller, to the rescue, and he came just in time, as Ralph was at the point of drowning. The boys were got quickly to shore, ana vigorous restorative measures had to be employed, Cieve at one time fell oil the plank but regained his hold, so his danger was small, as he retained Ins presence of mind. THE CHURQH. ter In the hands of the -proper officers. Yesterday a small tin box containing some cotton batting was found in the entry of the hotel. On closer examination it was found to contain the missing stones. The other articles have not been found. The suggestion is that the work was local and that fearing apprehension the thief had returned the diamonds in this way, hoping to avert suspicion. One or two parties are under surveillance, but no arrests have been made, as the officers are hoping to accumulate more evidence before preferring the charges. . SAWED IN TWO.

Kossuth counity is one'of the greatest dairy counties in Iowa. The co-operative creamery has made peacefu.1 inyas? ion of every neighborhood, arid, everywhere complete 'submission' : has' been made. The dairy interest ranking so high with us, and so much money being in cows, it would seem irrational for,.the county,fair.to give all.,jts ;mo.n- ey tq.trptting and running horses,whicli produce no wealth. The' proposition comes in from the farmers to raise a purse and offer some ;good prizes for cows making the best showing of. butter fat. The cows would be tested on the grounds, of course, and by parties and according to rules satisfactory to the competitors. One suggestion as to the prizes is that they be raised from ah entry fee. each exhibitor depositing $2, or whatever sum may be agreed upon. It is also suggested that prizes be offered for cows of different ages and for heifers. The REPUBLICAN heartily favors making this test a part of the program.
