!WiV BY MILTON STARK. SUBSCRIPTION KATES: One Year, in Advance $1.50 Six Months 75 Three Months 4° CURIiMWT TOPICS. Senator Peffer of Kansas is reported to have said to an interviewer a few days ago: "The silver question is the leading question of the hour, but at present in the West the agitation is dying out. This has been strongly marked during the last six or eight weeks. I think it but a temporary check, however, and that the sentiment is strong with the people. Still, there are no more public meetings now, and the discussion that continues is put up by the newspapers alone." The senator went on to express his opinion that even many who are now talking silver wili vole with their respective parties as usual when election comes. Mr. Bland, however, says thafc "Free silver- is hound to win." -Vr -X•* One of the most prominent men in the land just now is- Theodore lloose- velt, president of the New York city police commission, through whose determined efforts to secure obedience to the excise law every saloon in that city has been shut up for many Sundays, so that the practicability oC enforcing the law has been amply demonstrated. iJr. Roosevelt is one of the most admirable characters in public life. He can trace his aucestory back to the earliest settlement of Manhattan Island, and all his ancestors have been active in public affairs, but he chooses to stand on his own merits and win his way by his own exertions. lie is not of the purse-proud class, nor does he believe that it is the best end of life to make money beyond reasonable needs. He believes that every man should be a worker, and that he should be engaged in decent work. In official life, in the legislature, as a member of the United States civil service commission, and in his present position he is absolutely fearless, holding his public duty above any thought of private gain or advantage. He is engaged now in enforcing a law which is of course obnoxious to a large portion of the people. It is a law which never was enacted to be enforced. Its object appears to have been to use as a thumbscrew to apply to saloon'keepers who refuse to contribute to the support of Tammany. But it is being enforced today, and doubtless it will be so long as it remains on the statute books and' Mr. Roosevelt holds his present position. Incidentally, the strict enforcement of this law in the greatest city in the land ought to be an eye-opener to those good people who have sincerely uelieved that no law could be enforced in our larger cities and towns which the viler elements of humanity would not consent to. So long as there is integrity and courage in the administration of the laws crime cannot stand up and defy civil authority anywhere. V When Emrnelsburg's packing house was built the citizens subscribed $20,000 as a bonus to the institution on the condition that the builder, T. J. Ryan, should at the end of five years have the option of paying the subscribers 810 ; 000 or of transferring the plant to them upon their payment of fifty cents on the dollar of the money expended by him in its erecliou. Ryan now demands his fifty cents on the dollar. The Reporter says of Mr. Ryan's ae- ti:>n: "He now wants the subscribers to take the building off his hands and give him more for it than he ever put into it. He was not so exact in fulfilling that part of the contract which said that the packing house should be an all-the-year-round packing house, and should be in continuous operation except in time of panic, or a strike among laborers, plague or any other contigency of like nature. lie thought he had a loop-hole to crawl out in the other contingency, and he took advantage of it, and did not operate it for any length of sime. He may not have made any money in the af&iir, but certainly he was the cause of the citizens of Palo Alto county dropping the $20,000 in it." From all which it might appear that while a packing bouse might be built in every town, it is not every town that is built for a packing house, nor every man who has money to spend who is built to run one. To make a packing house of good capacity pay it must have a largo and a sure supply of hogs, and one cannot easily be run at a point which is not a natural hog market. The failure of the Emmetsburg experiment is an instructive if not a pleasing object lesson. *..* Judge Stevenson, of Des Moiues, luuuled down a decision in the Peg Moinos liquor cases on Friday which, will causo tho druggists of tlje state 4o op'Mi their «yes to u situation which they had not previously been awaro of. Tho Judge holds that tho fact that the buyer signs his name docs jiot exonerate tha druggist unless ho 1ms positive evidence that tho liquors are pot to be use-d us a beverage, IJe Uojds tlmt the dealer must know positively that they arc lo beiwod medicinally In-fore making the sale, and in cases in which the druggist could not testify to positive knowledge of (his 1m hrld that they wore constructively guilty of disobeying the law. One of the druggists, II. C. Hanson, agaiiu.t whom an indictment was rclin noil undrr this holding, informed tho court that h(i would afc tho next sitting appear with his liquor ppunit and asked that it bo cancelled, lie said he could Hot sell liquors under such a construction of Ilia law. and that if ho couldn'tsell liquors he could not continue in business. Tho construction given to tho statute will probably bo contested in tho supreme court, but while it seeing to bo an extreme view, it certainly was nor, the intent of the law that tho sale of liquors should bo a druggists chief business and the great source of his profit, as this particular druggist has inado it. Such druggists ought to go out of business, and the permit should be promptly cancelled. . •K- * * All question as to whether rx-Gov- ernor JJoies will accept a roiioniina- tion has been set In ,c:-;fc by his announcement that ho will not. The numerous lellusoM Ihe financial question coining from Mr. Boies recently had prepared ihe public to believe that ho would be a willing candidate, but tho old Roman was too shrewd to enter the field again, in f'aco of the strong and im.reasingcin.reut towards repub licanisa.1. The democratic convention is in sesssion at Marshall town today. * * * A few weeks ago the REPUBLICAN quoted Prof. Calvin, of the state geological survey, in regard to the recent discoveries in the manufacture of acet- yline which are likely to revolutionize our lighting systems and give us an illuminating gas cheaper than ever was dreamed of, and something that can be utilized in the isolated farm house as well as in the town. Prof. Tillman, in the August Cosmopolitan, gives further interesting particulars and says: Acctyline can bo liquified by a comparatively moderate pressure. It caivbo kept in tho liquid form and easily converted into ga;< by reducing tho pressure, and i.s then ready for combustion. On account of tho giert saving of space, it is probably in this liquid form that it, will find mo-it convenient application in many cases of isolated lighting, such as buoys, lighthouses, and perhaps in private dwellings. In this form it will be {.'specially convenient for use in enriching common coal ga~, and this will probably ho one of its most immediate applications. Ace.Lylino light Is pure while, and therefore shows more truly the natural colors of objects. It is now thought that calcium carbide will be eventually produced at a corit not exceeding S3 per ton. If this expectation fan realized, acetyline will prove the ideal illuminating gas, if not the ideal illuminant. it Is interes.iing to recall the.-fact,.that the developments in electricity havo-made the commercial production of acetylino practicable, and that Ihe two agents will now bo competitors in tho lield of illumination. The Sioux City Journal calls the attention of the business men of that place to a possible speculation and says: The keen business eye", of Sioux-City men have no I* been dosed to the value of these chalk beds in-thi-. vicinity, and this subject oi: acetyline and calcium carbide was investigated LOUIO years ago. Sinco then, it appears from these scientists, improvements have been made in the manufacture and an investigation at this time might tarn out dilfcrently from the former one. It will not do for Sioux City to sit still right on top of an undeveloped, mine of acetyline sul'iicient to light tho world and not let that light shine. OLD LADY'S OPINION. "On the coinage question," began the grocery statesman, "I stand square on the platform—' 1 "It ain't standin' square is what is the mr.tter with you, Silas,'' interrupted his wife, having completed her trade of eggs for calico," "it is standiu' round what is ailiti' you an'half these other fellers that oner be out plowin'instead of savin' their country with their mouths."—Indian- opolis Journal. ADVANCED RATES. Estherville Republican: Tho irisur- iinco trust has advanced r.tli's all through Iowa, and yesterday tho >'s- tuerviilo agents got nol.ico of this advance hero. In a few instances the ratt'B remain tho same, but generally the raise is from 10 to S) per cent. Parties in tho fraiuo buildings bolweon the state and national banks will have to pay from 7t to 7i on buildings and 5 per cent, on contents. This issimply outrageous, and wo doubt if the business men Ayill submit iu it. They will either not insure at all or ;^> into tho muftials. N INTERESTINGPEN1NG.

And while you are eagerly watchingour deportment and carefully investigating our depth of knowledge, we ask you In the spirit of fairness Dot to be deluded with the belief that tho teachers' greatest merit consists in an ample fund of knowledge which she is able to impart. No, if these were the only reiiuiromouts the classical graduates of oar schools might bo , turned loose upon the public confirmed anarchists, and tho foundations of the republic tremble at I/heir misdirected powers. l\ r o, the professional spirit which we imbibe, from those anntial institutes enables us to surround your tender youth with an atmosphere which tends to heighten virtue and morality. And while we aim to make good scholars, we have at the same lime a much higher aim in striving to make good citizens. Friends, I believe I know something of the capabilities of these humble teachers who surround you to-night. I know they are doing a noble work. I beg you not to forget that under their silent influence your children are growing into manhood and womanhood with feelings of deepest patriotism, with a strong love for Ihoir country, and with a warm devotion to tho stars and stripe;?. These assemblies, so long noted for their uniform success, aio by no moans the result of accident or chanco. They are emphatically tho product and outgrowth of good judge- ment, of harmonious action and or well directed effort. From what source come ihe finances which give you more than a score of free lectures—intellectual feasts? All, my friends, with tho exception of ?«0 each year paid by the state, tho total expense is paid by those who are to be your guests during the coming three weeks, Last year we thought tho height of perfection had been attained, but I wru.t to ;ay to^ aight that tho ellicieiu-y of this t'.ossion, with its (Milincut professors and lecturers, eclipsoa by far all preceding ones.

Britt Tribune: Fifteen years ago in the,' year 1880, a lady from Algona— Miss Effle- Hawkins— taught 'a term or two. of school in Amsterdam township.. Miss Gertie Bailey— now Mrs. J. S. Magor— was at the time a Hancock county, school ; ma'am and a friendship existed, between the two "school ma'ams" that, was of course "undying" as girls' friendships always are. They were constant companions, visiting each others homes etc., etc. A few years afterwards each -as school ma'ams always would, or at least "most always"— found a companion more suited too their several tastes 'and .requirements than their former companionship, and the undying friendship and girl loves were forgotten in the busy realities of earnest evcrydav homo life. Each was busy making a home for themselves. They drifted' apart, not forgotten but neglected, and for 13 years have never met or heu,rd from each other.'. When the telo* phone line reached Bancroft tho central office was located in Mr. A. J.
