The democratic state convention, held last Wednesday at Marshalltowja, was the scene of the hardest foiiglifc- battle thatj probably* an Iowa state democratic convention has ever witnessed. In the earlier stages of the 50-cent dollar free coinage agitation democrats generally thought that the ideas which had governed the financial world for ages had been forever set aside. They sincerely believed, not that a revolution was coming, but that it had indeed come and done its work, so far as a radical overturning of hum- an;convcition and purpose- in a self" governed nation could be counted a revolution. They felt that all that was not already done could be safely anticipated as the natural and inevitable outcome of a few 'elections, and that patience only was needed to bridge over the time till these elections could, in the orderly course of the seasons, he held. It was with this impression that Gov. Boies came out for free coinage. His later hedging on the subject, and' the frequent letters he wrote to efface the impression made by his first, were indications of the unexpected reappearance of doubt and dispute. As the convention approached the popular mind ceased to indicate a high free '> coinage fever. The conservative and business elements and interests of the state began to be heard in emphatic dissent from the free silver, proposition, and a note of distrust which could not be quieted began to be sounded even by those who had read with mouth agape of Coin's unit, crime arid Calamity and confessed that their ! intellectual machinery began to work at that precise point- .But what eventually decided the question of the platform declaration 1 was the interference of Cleveland's office ' holders. ' These were so conspicuous in the convention that its action on silver seems generally to be accepted as the result of their fight in behalf of the administration. So careless did the ruling Cleveland's element become, that one of their, spokesmen; Mayor Vollmer, of Davenport, denounced free silver as "a hydra, compound of incomprehensible heterogeneous insanity." > He said of populism, which the democrats have coddled these many years, that it was "a craze in'an advanced stage of decbmpo- , sition." A Council Bluffs man warned tbe convention that it would ; "take something more than beer to carry A ,Iowa .this year.'Lbut such talk was without influence upon an assemblage pf men who bad ; 'long since discounted all the terrors of inglorious defeat, and whose great present solicitude was that they might continue to hold on to the federal offices now in -possession. The plank adopted was that of the national convention of 1892, minus 'the state bank clause, and thus have the democrats of Iowa Deliberately refused to make'an issue in this campaign what as been heralded as the crea\> issue of 1896. The vote by which ,free coinage was defeated arid the "sound mdhe,y" plank adopted was 651 to 417, the administration majority being 234. The anti-silver men pushed their advantage to the utmost and possessed themselves of the party organization, leaving, as is supposed, only two silver men on the state committeevnominating. Babb for governor and a Dubuque railroad man for railroad commissioner. Both elf the presiding officers were anti-silver men. The adoration of Cleveland and the burningof incense to him and his policy was the only serious business of the convention. The mulct law was condemned, and a higblicense and local option policy declared for, but no word of censure was recorded against those democrats in the last general assembly who might have enacted that policy into law but would not. The. convention obliterated all serious issues except the tariff, so far as it could do so, and by common consent: the battle ground of the campaign will be tbe tariff, the republicans advocating tbe ; doctrine,of protection as defined in the ^legislation of every prosperous period ; history, and the demoera : cyrallying behind the mongrel law of the last congress. , • * * * Nobody but a confirmed egotist, oc cupying Mr. Funk's position could claim for himself that his record in the legislature during the eight, years . of bis service had,been accorded the unanimous approval of his constituents Mr', Funk's general course in the senate probably met with as wide an in dorsement as the average wa,n could hope to win in a district where the hab it is prevalent for every full grown inhabitant to dQ Ws own thinking, His course has generally been conservative he has striven by reputable means to attain his objects, and his scrupulous nopd faith and candor have given him the confidence of his colleagues, a first consideration in a successful legisla? live career. By these means be won position in four assesiblieparjd, son* trilmted his shaie to the accomplished work of legislation. By the same means he easily won a renorcnuation. It was riot because the people had lost confidence hi him that every county with the exception of Emmet presented a candidate, who was so strongly supported as to leave the result to ac- cideht, but because we have other very capable men in the district, and the claims of locality are u ruling factor in politics. Mr. Funk returns to the senate capable of wielding considerable influence in behalf of 'any measure which he may support. Inasmuch as this section of iowu has important ih- terests-fit q|nk9 MI tlie coming assetti^ bly, it is fortunate tliat the man who will represent the district in the upper house is so Well qualified by experience and standing to unji^ftake their championship. "•fnMr. Mayne of this^ county, and we may assume in Mr. Whelan. of Emmet and Mr. Cornwall of Clay, he will haveTIieTest support that men in the lower house lean give him. Northwester^ Iowa must come to the front iri the distribution of substantial benefits, as she has long been in the contributions she has made to republican victories, and that is the 'proper, the natural and the logical course of events. * * < f # • One of the events of 1895 which may be ranked as of .first importance is the setting apart of Chicago's lake front, contiguous to the business center of the city, as a" public park, and the adoption, of elaborate, plans for its improvement id- beautiftcation. A -considerable area of the lak'fe 1 will b^filled-in and the railroad tracks will be.sufi'k'and doubtless one of the, most beautiful parks of the world will *there be created. It means much to the west that Chicago's business men are determined to retain the prestige won.for her in:tbe isuccess of the world's fair. It means that the ienter of educational influences and of art, as well as the center of material development, is coming west, and that hicago is certain to be their fit representative. .'!:.' .;.'.. There was a great fight over free silver in the tenth district caucus at the' denio- cratic state convention. It took five 'bal- ots to elect a member .'of tlve committee on resolutions, the silver issue being' raised. Mr. Zimmer, the winning maii, declared himself against the free coinage idea at the 16 to 1 ratio. A free silver resolution was afterwards introduced, but the. caucus adjourned before it could be;. brought to a vote.. Dr. M. J. Kenefick, of Algona-, was matie a member of the; committee on organization.

A Tedious bead Lotk Was Kept Op through 1,567 Ballots — Moriois for Kossuth County. The republican senatorial convention finished its business sooti aftejr hihe o'clock, Thursday morning, by nominating A. B. Funk for a third term, and adjourned, Tke noifiina- tidfi was made on the 156&th ballot, which was the first one taken on that day; The result was due to the action of Kossuth county in throwing her entire eleven Votes to Funk, which with the eleven votes of Dickinson and Em* met, gave him twenty^two, or ihree more than enough to nominate* The casting of the deciding votes of Kossuth was greeted With the usual hilarious demonstrations on the part of the Funk men and their sympathizers, When order was restored, the result was announced, 22 votes for Funk to is for Hubbardj the latter having received the solid vote of Palo Alto during the closing ballots. Mr. Richards, of Clay-, then moved to make Mr. Funk's nomination unanimous, which was seconded by Capt. Hartshorn of Palo Alto, and carried. Mr. Funk responded to calls for a speech, and when he had taken his seat Kossuth courity's candidate was called for. When Mr. Clarke rose to speak he was warmly greeted, and his speech was one of the best that has been heard on such an occasion.. He closed by quoting /the proverb which, says that it is better to Oe born lucky than rich, and said the successful candidate was one,of-the luckiest men he had met. Preside'nt Barslou made a jarief speech of thanksp- and the convention, which was called to order on Tuesday afternoon, adjourned on Thursday morning in time to permit the Kossuth county delegates to take the morning train home. Kossuth county was honored not only iri'the selection of Mr. Barslpu as 'the presiding officer, but with the office of secretary also, which position was 'accorded to Stitzel X. Way, of Wesley. Mr. Way was'a model secretary and made a record in calling and recording the ballots which will be the envy of dead-lock convention secretaries ; the country over. There were five counties to, c.all, and a record of ten ballots minute was made right along.-^It took six .seconds to "make a 'call, bir.ciiie'; 'and qTie-sixtb secbnds to a county, ajfid Chairman. Barslou' was kept very tfjJsy announcing: "Same resultvno choice." VAfe intervals complimentary balltits. were cast, and each of the candidates received as high, as 18 votes. ; Of course the greatest care was exercised ftp avoid any mistake by which any candidate should be given enough to norni- nate.'" ,'. , Matters were somewhat simplin'e^, Wednesday evening, by the practical withdrawal of M. L. Brown, Palo Alto's choice, the seven votes of his county going to Ackley Hubbard, of Clay. Mr. Brown made many friends by his gentlemanly bearing, and the .enthusiasm of his neighbors, was to his advantage. Mr. Clarke came out of tbe convention with the good will of all and with a prestige second only to that of tbje victor.; Though , he was believed jto have an even chance .Of success, tire logic of the'Situation went against him and he secured the prestige of dictate ing the nomination. .• :-.. The monotony of the proceedingswa's •such as to drive even the delegates away, while spectators were conspicuous by their absence. When the nori> ination' was made there were only about twenty men in the ball. The decision was a surprise to Palo Alto and Clay, uiit.tbe other counties knew what was coming. • It was a nqtiqeable fact in tbe con vention that eveiy delegation was thoroughly, loyal to the interests 'Of its candidate. There was no difference in the respective delegations in this regard. At one tiriie Kossuth county cast four votes for Ackley Hubbard, Clay county's choice, and this with'Clay and Palo Altp voting together, would have given him the nomination. U'here was, however, only pse Jfalq.'Alto •8nt(j-p%;h»p8' : 61j<9'*Wj»nci arid Palo Alto by which the votes of the two counties should go to Palo Alto had hot then been formed:, and tbe opportunity once n})s,se<J was not 'again offered. . tt took very hard work to bring Palo Alto and Claj;to|?either, on the basis of Mr, •CprjB.'pflrs ( Ayitlidra,wal from the representative race conditioned upon Mr- Hubbard's nomination for senator, but a:JJ question of .good faith was at jast removed by documentary evidence of tbe intenUoRS of Mr, Cornwall's de 1 egation. Tbe w'angernent was one which would naturally he first suggested to the hope, both of Palo Alto and Clay, but it vim effected too late to serve any purpose. Geo. <B.

Clarice .for senator. It was composed of the rep- resentrttiVe business inea pf the county. Senator Funk was also ably' backed by sotne.Of the best citizens of Dick* ihson and Emniet coiihties, who eame to look after his interests, while Clay sent over a score of her stalwatt soils to see that the interests of her favorite son, Ackley Hubbard, were well taken care of. Palo Alto was at home, and every matt in Emmetsbtifg took a lively interest in the chances of her favorite candidate. The battle that Was fought is sufficient evidence that the friends of each Were loyal to the inter' est of him whose cause they espoused. STILL IT IS THE BIGGEST.

Militia Boys Fail to Realize the Serious Nature of the Offence.—Greendale's • Punishment. It is hard for some of the I. N. G. boys to understand that there is anything serious or important about their military service. They enlisted thinking only of the fun they were going to have, and the fine figure they would cut in their handsome uniforms and brass buttons. The annual encampments were to be occassions of rare enjoyment, with just enough drilling . for exercise, and a good time the main object. Some of the boys are beginning to take a gloomier view of military life. They find that discipline must be. maintained and orders must be obeyed. One of the things that some boys find it hard to comprehend is that desertion is a serious offence. One of the Centerville boys has had 'the fact impressed upon him, Saturday's Register had the following special: Centerville, Aug. 9.—Greendale, tbe Ot tumwa National Guard deserter, was punished by being compelled to mow grass in the hot sun. This morning We gave the guard the slip and is now at large. Reed Donnelley, a member of Company K, of Grinnell, aged 33, has suddenly, .dis^ appeared and can not be found. The report that his dead body was found at the bottom of a coal shaft is not true. The Green4ale case is a, peculiar one. The .young man belonged to Company D, comananduU by Capt, E. H, Caughlan, He became tired of canip life on Monday, after .a thorough te'st-'>of one whole day, and .quietly returncd'to his home in Ot- turaw.a. when his absence was noted in* fonuatlon sent-to Ottiimwa and, an effort was inad'O' to compel his return, Sheriff S'todeill, however, refused to do so, deciding th»t he had no authority by Jaw; and Greend«lo refused to return of bis own accord, Adjutant General Prime tben issued *n order to the sheriff requiring him to bring Greendale back, and up» im tihe, receipt o4! this document he'dld so, and deserter Greon<Ja)e was returned to camp yesterday, -. .-• .Green<Jalajs|i bukor, ajtd'be says that •ho.mforsie^ CaM,,|J9,v.gbll>ifQme " ' possible |or him -to go into <camp.

THE CRESCO CASE. State Supt. Sabin Sustains Supt. Reed's Opinion and Dismisses McNutt's Appeal. Supt. B. F. Keed has received from State.Supt; Sabiri his decision in tbe CresOjSjcase appealed from his decision some months ago. The beginning of this case was tbe refusal of the township board to employ S. H. McNutt to teach in bis 'district.' • McNutt was the director and could not contract with himself, arid the board employed him for one term-as'.teacher, aut refused to do so tbe second time when he applied. At the time of this refusal some objection was made to McNutt's employment, and so he got up a petition and presented it to tbe board along with his application. Another petition, signed by patrons of the school who objected to McNutt, was submitted to the board, at the same, time, but it was a smaller petition than McNutt's, and the latter held in bis appeal to Supt. Reed, that the' board was legally bound to employ him because tiis petition was the largest. Tbe Superintendent sustained .the action of the board, ruling that they had full discretion to do as they saw fit, and on this ruling the appeal was taken to the state superintendent. The latter's finding is, technically, a reversal of Mr. Beed's decision, but at the same time it is a dismissal of McNutt's appeal, and the actual reason given for reversalis that v tne.lower tribunal did not go as far as it should have done and dismissed tbe appeal in the first instance. On tbe point submitted, which is whether the board bad discretion in acting upon, or in disregard of petitions submitted by the patrons, Supt. Reed is strongly sustained by the highest authority. Following is the f iill' text of the Statrsupt. 's opinion: M. D. Courll, et al. v&'Disti twp; : Cresco Appeal from Kossuth county. In all cases it is the rule that an appeal can be taken only from some action of the board as shown by the secretary's records, . • In this case the records certified to by the secretary and sent up as the "transcript, show th'at two petitions, marked exhibit A and exhibit BV were before the board at their meeting March 18,1895, but there is nothing to show that any action was taken upon either of them, Tlie records further show tbat.these motions were passed: "Moved that S, H. McNutt be retained as subdirector, but resign as teacher," The reslgnjatlon of Mr. McNutt as sub-director was. accepted.., ,''Qn motion B, H. McNutt was then appointed director, again to fill vacancy;- after lie requajified /pr tbe.aanjie.. 1 ^ There can be no question a$ whfch'the law devolves upon them, and for which. they ; are held directly responsible. While we, ; find nothing which, would have justified the county superintendent in reversing the- action of the board, we think he erred in npt dismissing the case, as the errors charged in the affidavit of appeal are not Ijprne oiityby'.th&recdrds of " the secretary, sent up as the transcript. Reversed t.nd dismissed. ••'' " " SuEeitotende^t-of'PublicInstructiont Dated August 7, 1895. _ GAME ET. The'Emmetsburg:.Ball.Club Win a Game frorn. Algona.after Eleven Innings. The Emmetsburg base ball' nine came pvesr, yesterday, and entertained the Algona aggregation in-a game of eleven innings, }t taking, that many to settle matters' satisfactorily. The game is said to haye.been the best witnessed iri Algona'since the days of Mike Ca- hilland An.dy,;P.helps., The JJminets- burg club had Baker, the professional pitcher from Minneapolis, and Algona had a-battery from Mank'atp, that was fully as gooa.""At"one" time the Em- ffletsburg club,started ttf leave the grounds, owing to what they called a "rank" decision of the umpire* which they; said they wouldn't stand. A new umpire was put in in the person of Harv Daily, of ,"\Vhittemqre, and the Emmetsbiirgers were cdaxed back. The excitement was Intense during the entire game, and-it-is whispered that some of the sporting element backed their opinions with mjqn.ey tp a considerable extent. Harvey Ingbam's yells and the npis,e pf the rest of the crowd were! still'to be heard while the ordinary peacable citlzen^was at supper, and the game was finished -near 7 o'clock, after 11 innings w.we.. v played. The score stood eight to f nlri'e in favor of Emmetsburg. The Algona club play the Eagle Grove club tomorrow and another good .game is expected-. BAILEY'S Two month's ago Editor Bailey, of the Britt Tribune, went to Spirit Lake' on, tb,e occasion of the Ha"somc excur- sipn, and he was so deeply- impressed, with what he discovered in the Orleans dining room that wl»en he" reached homehe wrote.upa'Charaeteristiic description of the bill of fare and stated how long each component part'had been in building, tracing some of it b.itck,ag fay as Hyram of Tyre and Sol* '' '' Tbe records of tbe secretary , iat the board took any action restricting Mr, MeNutt Jn bis choice as teftcber, Jr it is claimed that the roapuoluvlng him, was for tbe purpose pf preventing bis teaching the school Jn his sub-district, tbe fact plainly stated in tbe district records, thatlie Immediate requaljfled, would, seem t'o show that he 41(1 not regard tbe action'of the board as prompted 'by 'passion or prejudice.
