THE .-••-»" K '--'I-' BY MILTON STARR. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: One Year, in Advance $1.30 Six Months 75 Three Months 40 ELECTRIC LIGHT FACTS. Prof. Frank Parsons lias an article on "The People's Lamps," in the Arena for August, which has been read with considerable interest in Algona, as it probably has been in rnauy other towns in the land. It is all about electric light prices, and the revelations it makes are such as to challenge attention. Prof. Parsons gives numerous tables showing what prices are paid for arc lights in cities large and small, in all parts of the country, and the first thing that calls for remark is the wide contrast in these rates. No two towns pay the same price, and some prices are three or four times what others are. It looks as though the prices were wholly arbitrary, and not based on the cost of production so much as the tribute possible to levy. The most interesting comparison is between the prices paid to private and public plants, the" latter being uniformly lower. One of the most instructive tables is the one showing past and present prices in towns which have made the change from private to public ownership, "after'' having change. Here it is: "i».. ™ -.,, "\ T , l'r'\vTsl.!n'.'Vlc.!'.'^ IVub(.><.ly. Muss Bay Cil'y. Mich Ilu'ntiinitun, hul... rioslii'D. Iiul the "before" reference to and this Hi;l'oro. Al't.or.

Flu ........ :.'•! •> This table shows a difference of five- sixths in one case, in two cases four- fifths. in live three-fourths, in eight over two-thirds, and more than half in all. But except in tho cases of Peabody and Jacksonville, the plants above mentioned do not do commercial lighting, and all are arc lights except at Jacksonville. When commercial lighting is done thu expense is largely or wholly borne by the revenue derived therefrom. A table is given showing results in towns which sell commercial lights, and the cost to the city of lights under that condition is given as follows, per street lamp per year: St. Clairville, Ohio, 828; Swanton, Vt, $10; Chehalis. Wash., $8; Indianola, Iowa, $7; Wellston.Ohio, $7; Grand Ledge, Mich., $6.50; Madison, N. Y., 812; Newark, Del., 84. All these are arc lights except the three last named. The article then goes on to make a showing of towns which own plants and sell commercial lights and pay the entire expense of lighting the streets from the revenues derived from the latter. The towns named under this head are Albany, Mo., Batavia, 111., Crete, Neb., Council Grove, Kansas, Middleton, Pa. , Oxford, O-, and St. Peters, Minn. Next the writer gives a list of towns where, •besides securing free street lights, a profit is made on commercial lighting, as follows: Farmville, Virginia, $240 profit; LuVerne, Minn., $520 profit; Falls City, Neb., $650 profit, and Eock- port, Mo., $900, / These figures are eye-openers. The number of instances given is large, and the towns are scattered all over the country. The showing in the matter of incandescent lights for stores, residences, etc., is to the same general effect. The average price per meter hour charged by public plants is 1 cent per meter hour, while public plants seldom charge upwards of one-half cent per hour, and only a very few run as higb as that. At Indianola the rate runs from 30 cents to 50 cents pel- month, and 40 cents is a very common rate. Tipton's rate is 50 cents, Chariton's 40 cents, Lu Verne's, Minn., 50 cents. Of course it is not expected that a private corporation will do work as cheaply as a public corporation, as the latter is not run for profit, but the difference is usually too great to explain except upon the theory of excessive charges. The town usually runs its own water works, and the same power runs a water and an electric plant, and there are other reasons why the town can, as in every case it does, give a vastly cheaper service. The fact is the great thing, and in the Arena article the fact is the main thing set forth. Jn the case of Algpna. which has np electric plant, though in every other respect ahead of many towns which have them, the town is bonded for water works up to the limit of its legal power to encumber itself, and a public plant is at present out of the question, and will be for some years. In the meantime the town ought to be better lighted, than it is, but it is. not likely that its ejectors will vote a franchise to any company unless the guarantees $re satisfactory against extortionate charges. It is well understood that, once a franchise is granted, it amounts to jjn exclusive franchise, as the town wiBRot support two plants, and the one first established could prevent the eav teblistaent of private competition for way yews, sod if a contrast with tfee city fora term of years should be secured by the company, the city itself would be estopped from lighting its own streets with its own plant. But it does not seem as though it ought to be impossible to secure a plaot on some tercns. A company which would take in substantially all the business men of the town, giving each a limited holding of stock, might be feasible. The dividends might be limited to a fair interest rate, a contract for power might be made with the city, which would lessen the latter's lighting expense, and a contract might be made to turn the plant over to the city when the latter could take it. The inducement to the business men would be the cheapest practicable electric light, and the general good of the town, which ought to be as well lighted as any other town. A franchise for a semi-public company on this or some like basis would be promptly voted. CURRENT TOPICS. People who have supposed that the silverquestion would overshadow everything in next year's presidential campaign can now see how impossible that situation will be. Here in Iowa the democrats have, practically, indorsed the republican declaration on silver and the currency question in general. They have wisely dropped the foolish demand of their national platform for state bank money, and theic is no abstract financial pioposition left to light over. It is true that the democrats have indorsed Cleveland's administration, and if they had not their parly would necessarily be held to account for its extreme gold policy, its extraordinary bond transactions, and its general financial cussuduess, but obviously the financial question cannot be given first importance, and the question of independent free silver coinage at an arbitrary ratio is absolutely ruled out. The Ohio democratic convention was held last week, and it also went back to 1892 for its financial doctrine. The democratic national convention of next year will certainly go against free silver as the republican convention will. There are perhaps more believers in free silver in the United States today than ever before, but while they are mainly in the democratic party, they are but a small, though troublesome, minority in that organization, and cannot control it, though they may disrupt it. The battle ground will be the tariff, as usual, and the republicans will win. •<• -:<• * Algona is coming to the front, of course. Henry Durant has an article in Monday's Chicago Chronicle on the question of protection. Mr., Durant writes as good a free trade article, probably, as any writer in this country is capable of, and his arguments are clinchers, too, unless the reader happens to know a few protection facts. Free trade theories are very plausible, and nearly every young man who studies free trade authors in the schools and colleges comes out a free trader, as the writer of this paragraph did, but familiarity with facts and conditions related to American industries aud their development under the protective system always make the practical question one between the United Stages and the rest of the world, and the issue is one of patriotism when it is understood. Yet we mtisfciconcede that the Le view of the case is more accepts many quarters. Ike Sweigard, formerly one of K th county's supervisors, and for some jfp a Wesley business man, is the dome candidate for state senator against riman, in the district oast of us. Sweigard is a bright enough man was clerk of the courts in Hancock c for several years. He ran for the position in this county against N. B ham and was badly beaten. The co tlon is reported to have been held in CHggett's back office at Mason City. The republicans of Clay and Palo; have renoininated Hon. W. W. Cort of Clay, for another term. This wi proper thing to do. Mr. Cornwall ni fine record in the last legislature. The comments of the Iowa press on|he action of the proprietors of the Orj|ns hotel in closing because they wer<$ ot granted immunity from prosecution iffeor the liquor laws indicate a healthy pflUc sentiment. The people of the state |em disposed to make laws for hotels, fiid not allow the hotels to make laws( or the state. f Probably the most becoming blodrer costume is that which Port C. Barroil,of the Pocalioiitats Record, shows every \|u'k in the fashion plate which he runs at|ne bead of tho column next, to reading ifi;t- UT. ;• We think that the Ledyard Leader is mistaken in its supposition that the legislators who passed the mulct law did not consider the liquor traffic which that law legalized a curse. Practically everybody considers it a curse, and probably every man of those legislators would protest that he would put a stop to it entirely if he could. The matter of consistency with existing legislation is nothing for anybody to worry about, which ever side is taken on the question of legalizing breweries and distilleries. The prohibitory Jaw permits the sale for a few uses considered legitimate, and the manufacture to supply such limited sale would be wholly consistent with that law. But we know that no distillery or brewery ever was or will be built or run to supply a legal sale of liquors, either under the prohibitory or the mulct law. The business of liqnor making and liquor selling is a law defying business, acknowledging • no restraint but force. There is no good reason why the state should give a legal standing and sanction to a business that it must stand over with a club, and which is a feeder and ally of another Jaw despising business. There is no good reason for making any more concessions to the whiskey interest, and we do not anticipate that any member of the coming general assembly will give his support to a manufacture bill unless he is in sympathy with the saloon keepers, brewers and distillers. There is nothing in the saying that the proposed measure is in the interest of a better market for farm products. There is no demand that it will strengthen but the demand for more liquor, and there is no reason why anybody should urge it on unless he sympathizes with the business in all its branches and wants to. give it a boost- The only exception is ip the case of men who are influenced against their better judgement and conscience by their persona} or political interests. Tho females who wire through this M'- gion last week as an alleged baseball elib got not the most Mattering notices fr<m tho press. The newspaper men, howcyr, only expressed the better half of tbeir;i!)- inion of them. Tho other half would lot, look good in print. The comment wbvh tho newspapers omitted, however, Ivus supplied on the street. Likely their l:ip has blighti-d tho hopes of the, "new an," and for that reason it bus been a thing. Women who weroon tho point of being measured for pants changed th'ir minds when they saw those horrid sha'p's. Those Abell hotel men at Spirit Luke are evidently very good republicans. They say they will never, never open the Orleans again unless they can have jiro toction. Their guests on the other hjmd, think the tariff was plenty high. The Lake District Agricultural .Society holds its second annual fair at Ruthven, September ]<> to 20. A fine daily program has been prepared, consisting of races, base ball, band concerts, etc., together with numerous oilier special attractions. The fair grounds contain one of tho finest regulation tracks in the state of Iowa and the races promise to be of unusual interest. The territory covered by this society is Palo Alto, Clay, Emmet and Dickinson. Senator Harlan, it is reported, has given his Mt. Pleasant borne to his daughter, Mrs. Robt. Lincoln, and Mi 1 , and'Mrs. Lincoln will make their summer residence there. It is pleasant to know that so worthy a son of Abraham Lincoln makes his home in Iowa for half the year. Everybody says that Mr. Eabb, the democratic candidate for governor, is a very nice man, and then they go into ec- stacies over Mrs. Eabb, who Is a straight republican. LITERAEY NOTES, Harper's Round Table for August contains tho "Story of the Son ol Martin Luther," and within a few weeks this will be followed by articles on the sons of Napoleon, Cromwell, and Shakespeare. The Midland for September has, with other interesting contents, a vivid picture of the battle of Chickamauga from Gen. Johnson, of St. Paul, who commanded a division, and Col. Hatry, of Pittsburg. Thos. Hardy's "Hearts Insurgent," in Harper's for September, develops into that author's pessimistic strain. The story is a strange one, of course. Scribner's for September is a very attractive number, and a glance at it is sure to lead to an interested reading, "Photography in Fiction," and the instalment of "A History of the Last Quarter Century" are so striking illustrated that they will easily receive first attention, CANDIDATES FOR SUPERINTENDENT, I am a candidate for the oflico of county superintendent, subject to tho action of the republican county convention.

The RupuBBicAK is a county newspaper, and aims to cover the whole 6eld of county news, but it has bever issued to its corps of reporters any code of rules, or even volunteered any suggestions. It could, nevertheless, refer to its columns as evidence that its reporters know what news the public want. The points here made will be little more than what these Weekly letters would suggest, so uniformly have they followed the right line, and little more than emphasis on a few things is needed or intended. The aim of the county news page is to give the news of general interest in each town, township and neighborhood covered. The space at disposal is limited, and the rule must be to omit trilling matters, aud such as are of interest only to the parties mentioned. Some reporters for other papers make a mistake in keeping a few people always before the public, and those people can't ever go to church, or call on a neighbor after supper without having the occurrence announced through the press, the rest of the community being in the mean time overlooked. The reporter of course must not mention hia own movements with noticeable frequency, but when he builds a house or barn, or produces an ovcrfinc ciop, or buys a farm, or does or suffers anything that will give his neighbor mention in ii well written news column, it must be accounted undue modesty to suppress the chronicle. The reporter must study what news are of greatest interest to the greatest number of readers in his locality, and give that news. The improvements made, the crops raised, the farm results attained, the schools, the churches and other local institutions and enterprises, tho land sales, the now settlements, the births, the deaths, the notable storms, the accidents and incidents that make the center of remark are obvious lines of acceptable news. The reporter in town and country occasionally needs to be reminded that because the news is no news to those on whose particular account 1 it is put in, in respect of their not knowing it beforehand, makes no difference. Everybody wants to see the proper record in the paper. The latter should give definite particulars that will correct the frequent errors of local gossip, and reporters always need to be cautioned that flying. reports need to be verified. The best rule to follow in writing a piece of news is to anticipate the questions that will be asked about the event by those particularly interested in it, and then make your notice of it answer every one of those questions in as few words, and as definitely as you can. There is no call for lengthy letters to fill space, but all the important news should go in. The objection made by all editors to obituary poetry is sincere. It is prompted partly by a proper respect for the dead, and partly by a just regard for the living, who usually have never written poetry, and never tried to before. Cards of thanks are just as objectionable, and they are wholly useless, They,simply say what everybody knows is so, which therefore does not need to be said. News in the same line, as crop yields and improvements, should generally be brought together, in one or more paragraphs, but copy need not be rewritten to classify them. The reporters must try to treat all alike and to treat all fairly. Every right minded community will, on the other hand, give him credit for the work he is doing and the good influence which his weekly write-up exerts by inspiring enterprise and promoting public spirit and 'neighborhood pride. WHAT NOT TO DO; Never take offence if any item is omitted, and never assume te know why it was left out. It may have been wholly accidental, or it may have been set and then crowded out, or an occa^ sional item may not go in because it does not; look well in print, or is inconsequential- The REPUBLICAN is obliged every week to leave out matter that is set, Do not blame the editor for any* thing. Do not be afraid to have it found out that you write for the REPUBLICAN, nor tvy to sbif t responsibility for what you say. Begin rigjit by npt saying what will givf jugt occjasiop for offence. ;The editor ' will, get into trouble enough. Do not pick up 'anybody's quarrel, nor give unnecessary prominence to local quarrels, or scandal, or mere gossip. Do not write anything that has a double oi' doubtful meaning, or which will be understood by only one or a few. Use tbe mails for merely sonal communications age- WHAT TO pa.

Julian Suggests a Competition B<t- twesn Cows—A Good Thing. EDiToii REPUBLICAN:—Two weeks ago a paragraph was in your paper in regard to testing cows and calling on the breeders of dairy cattle to show up at the county fair. I think 1 was the originator of that idea, for this reason: Every man who owns from one cow up to fifty believes he has the best and I, in common with the rest, believe I have the best. In a discussion on the street a few days ago, this subject of big yields of cows came up and many doubts were expressed as to the truth of such reports especially from cows of some noted breeders. The discussion finally brought out the fact that a two day's test on the fair ground under a competent committee would be a good thing and if we would prove that our cows could do as we claimed then the public would have no doubts. As the premium lists are all made out and the probability is that the officers of the fair cannot help us very much I propose the following: Every cow that is entered for the test to pay an entry fee of. say $2.60. Have a class for aged cowu and one for heifers ii years old. A committee to be selected as the competitors may agree upon to see the cows milked at each milking, weigh the milk and take samples for Babcock test, the amount of butter ascertained and the price to be Elgin and the skim milk valued at a certain amount as can be agreed on and the both products or value of both products determine the first prize, second, etc. I would be very glad to hear from the breeders of good cattle and their opinions on the above plan. T. J. JULIAN. HAYS-JORDAN WEDDING. .Chicago Chronicle: The marriage of Miss Edith Jordan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Jordan, and Joseph W. Playes, was celebrated at the residence of the bride's parents, 628 Hamlin street, Evanston, Wednesday evening, Aug. 14. The ceremony was performed in the presence of a large number of friends and relatives by Rev. W. B. Slaughter, pastor of the Blue Island Methodist church. The house was decorated throughout with palms and nasturtiums and in the parlor where the ceremony was performed the decorations were sweet peas. The bridal party entered the drawing-room to the strains of "Lohengrin," and during the ceremony Miss Elfreda Coleman, pianist, and Miss Ella Young, violinist, played "O, Promise Me." The bride was attired in a gown of white satin, with rare old point lace trimmings. She was attended by Miss Hattie Slaughter as maid of honor. The bridemaids were the sisters of the bride and were proceeded by Willie Slaughter, who carried the ring. After the ceremony a reception was giyen to 100 invited guests. Mr. and Mrs. Hays left last night for a month's tour through the east. They will be home after Nov. 1 at 12S6 North Clarke street, Chicago. INGERSOLL AT CLEAR LAKE. At sixty years of age, Col. Ingersoll is still a young man. He is in .the full flush of manhood, In this age of dyspeptic men it is refreshing to look up9n his wholesome personality, while his mind has retained all the electrical brightness and splendid vigor which first attracted the attention of the world, and his eloquence still has its famed silver tone and enchanting power, Time seems to have fully matured the rich powers with which nature generously en- dowen him, Of all the world's noted men, Col, Ingersoll is one of the most modest. It is the inherent sympathy with nature that has made him universally popular. By even those who have most vigorously opposed his views he is warmly admired as a man, Among his army of close friends he numbers some of the roost eminent divines of tne country, including such mep as the Rev. Dr, Henry M. Fields, of the famous family of that name. Above all things, Col. Inger* soil loves liberty, and nothing more than intellectual hospitality. CoJ. Ingersoll will deliver his great lecture on Abraham Lincoln at Clear Lake Park, on Sunday September in RJngllog Bros, immense, tent.

The clbsirjg exercises of the Ifistitttte were held iti the High School i-ooto Thursday afternoot, when there Was a joiflt session of all the departments, Appropriate closifig addresses were made by Professors Gilchrist, Rich and Crowe, arid resolutions were adopted by the teachers thanking the instructors for their services and cornpliffient- ing Superintendent Reed upon the success of the Institute and of his administration. Miss Carol Keilson, repres* eiiting the teachers, surprised the superintendent by presenting him with an elegant marble case clock, worth $25, which is supposed to have had a special political significance, indicating that it was time for Mr. Reed to come out as a candidate for renomination. A great deal of pressure waa brought to bear upon him, and several petitions, signed by the teachers, calling upon him to take the Held, were presented. Mr. Reed finally declared himself' a candidate, and the Institute resolved itself into an enthusiastic ratification meeting. The closing entertainment, Thursday evening, was one of the most highly enjoyed of the course. Mrs. Lucia Gale Barber's monologues'and posing and Miss Kate Smith's violin solos were received with well merited demonstrations of enthusiasm. Mrs. C. E. Jones played the piano accompaninent for her sister. The lecture course as a whole was a great success, despite tlie failure to appear of two lecturers who were under contract to speak. The lectures by Prof. Swift were highly instructive as well as very enjoyable, and Prof. A. W. Rich, of Cedar Palls, delivered a lecture which was up to the best in the course, and one calculated to inspire teachers with an ambition to reach the highest qualification for their work. What Prof. Rich said on the subject of reading was worthy of lasting remembrance, and any teacher will honor himself by practicing the precepts he laid down. He is one of the levelheaded men in the profession which he honors. WHAT INSTITUTES COST. The teachers' institute is an expensive institution'. ' The" •instructors 'get as high as $10 a day, the lecturers are- expensive, about $50 a year goes for reut, and there are incidentals which aggregate a good total. The quarter- centennial institute, a few years ago, was run four weeks and cost $900. The ordinary institute runs two or three weeks and costs $500 or over. The very best talent for instructors and lecturers is procured, and the institute is run. all the time at a high pressure. How the bills are met is not understood by everybody, In one way and another the teachers pay them. Only 850 comes from the state annually. There are about 200 schools in the county, and some teachers take more than one' examination, so that about 300 examinations are taken, in a year, at $1 apiece. Membership fees in the institute at $1 apiece footed up to $254 this year. About $600 is the -aggregate yearly accumulation of the institute fund. THE STATE NOKMAL IDEA. Those who talked with Prof. Rich,of the State Normal School at Cedar- Falls, will need no further assurance that the proposition to found a system of State Normal Schools is being discussed as a very live issue, Prof, Rich is himself an enthusiastic advocate of the plan. He thinks that a number of new state schools should be established, with two-year courses of study,and that the Cedar Falls institution should be made a State Normal University and give a full four years course, Prof. Rich's ideas are always practical.
