SUBSCRIPfM RATES \ Ofte Vest, in Advance Si* Months Three Months -50 IS 4° THINGS BEFORE THEIR TIME. Two weeks ago the REPUBLICAN quoted a large number of passages from the bible showing that the decision of questions by lot was a common custom with the Jews and Romans, and further that God himself commanded the leaders of Israel to decide certain questions by that method, among them being the division of the promised land among the tribes by Joshua, the choice of the first king of Istael by the prophet Samuel, and the selection of one of the twelve apostles. We fancied that the citation of God's own command to his people would satisfy the scruples of the Emrnetsburg Reporter, but it begins to talk about the sins of the Hebrews and other wholly irrevelant matters, and closes by asking if the Kossuth, Emmet and Dickinson delegates held a prayer meeting before deciding the senator- ship by lot. It is quite as likely that they did as that the editors of the Reporter engaged in prayer before writing their criticisms of the Almighty. It is such cases as the Reporter's that sometimes cause us to question whether all the money is well spent that is applied in carrying the scriptures to the heathen. * * The Clay County News is another paper which questions the conclusiveness of the REPUBLICAN'S authorities, and it chimes in with the Reporter in discrediting the civilization of the Jewish people. The point is not well taken in the case of a people under divine leadership. The history of the Jews is not mainly the chronicle of a barbarous people, but a record of God's dealings. The Jews did not "escape" from bondage, as the Reporter has it: they were "delivered" out of the hand of the Egyptian. To attribute decision by lot to the suggestion of the Jews would, under the circumstances of its use, be as absurd and as unhistorical as it would be to credit the command- ^leins, the most perfect code of ethics the world knows today, to their unaided moral perceptions. It does not need to be argued that the division of the laud and the choice of a king were matters to which the divine leadership extended, because nobody will claim otherwise. written a thousand years befote Herodotus, is sufficient answer to the indictments, one and all, of our esteemed contemporaries. In motal and religious development, which is all that figures here, they wete vastly ahead of all other peoples of the ancient world. V If the question of civilizations is to be brought in it can be shown that decision by lot was of universal prevalence in the ancient world, numerous citations from classical litetatures so testifying. It prevailed among the Egyptains, the Assyrians, the Phoenicians, the Greeks and the Romans* It has been a practice among all modetn nations, and is so at the present, never at any time having been discarded, it is embodied in the laws of our own state to-day, and nobody evetquestion^ ed it, morally or otherwise, before. It is not, therefore, a-question of Jewish civilization, but of all civilizations; not a question of early practice but of universal and all time observance, and not a matter of human law giving more than of divine example. Dos Moines business men arc doing the proper thing in view of the fact .that their city is bound to be always the leading city in the state. A tax levy of 3 mills has been decided on to raise money for a new public library building which is to cost 8100,000. There is no great city now that does not realize that the public library is one of the first institutions that must be looked after. It comes next to the public school, and it should be so treated everywhere. Some supposed prehistoric remains were dug up near Burlington, Iowa,, last week, they having been encountered in digging a well, at a depth of 188 feet below the surface. The bones brought up by t the. drill all are hard as flint. The drill' also brought up sea weed, sand and shells, having struck the bed of a prehistoric inland sea. It is illustrated again how hard it is for a newspapers man, once he quits the business, to stay out of it. The - Clay County News has passed into the hands of P. B. Randall and Samuel Gillespie, old residents of Spencer, and Miv,Gillespievwill hereafter edit tho paper. .He-has done good work on the News in days gone by and is a very capable newspaper man. Mr. 1. H. Richards, who retires from the pa- ier after eight years of able and success- ul management, will doubtless soon re- urn to the ranks. The REPTBLICAN regrets to see him retire, even temporarily. * * * It is thus not so much u question of civilization as of divine responsibility that the Reporter and the Xews have to meet. But the REPUBLICAN desires to say a word by the way in regard to the Jewish civilization. It is true that when the Jews made their exodus from Egypt they were not in position to make the show of civilization attained at that period either by the Egyptians, the Syrians,the Canaanites or the Phoenicians, as no people could do when in a migratory state. But the condition of slavery which Joseph's people were reduced to did not indicate the low condition of ignorant and degraded toilers that we naturally associate with servile bondage to-day. The people were, on the other hand, instructed and practiced in many of the arts of life under the highest civilization that the world then knew, the civilization of Rameses II, under which many of the arts subsequently lost, and rediscovered only in our own day, were practiced. The idea that those people only made brick with mud and straw is common, but not justified. The Egyptians shifted many kinds of industry upon their bondsmen, not only the building of their great treasure cities, but work in other departments of industry so that not only did Moses possess himself of all the learning of the Egyptians, but his followers could con struct the tabernacle the first year ir the wilderness, a work requiring won derf ul skill in many arts, including the weaving of fine linen and the working of gold and silver into artistic forms The Jewish f amilylif e never was broken up, In it were crystalized the manners and customs, generally speaking.o the Egyptians among whom they lived Nothing can be quoted to show tha the Jews were below the moral plane o their times. On the other hand the; yielded ready obedience to the law o£ conduct which Moses enjoined, Thej held to. a conception or the deity un .known to uny other people. They were K not idolators, as the Reporter assumes but made war upon idolatry and cjrove it out before them. When they wen into the promised land they found walled cities, with rude houses, cis terns, and vineyards, and they knew what they were for, and built large: and more splendidly, until Solomon sur rounded himself with a magmficenc which was the wonder of contempor ary nations, among which be wielded the power and influence of an indepen d,ent and courted ruler. The Reporter's iodiptment of the Jews as superstitious win not hold, They believed in their what la believed, by the wisest ana what is, believed general- Jftost tbift perance. Take as an Illustration the harvesting and threshing. That used to be the festal period of the jug. The farmers had to come together to that part of the season's work and so they were social and convivsal. But now with the sharp bladed reaper and the pounding of the steam thresher a dram would mean death and so the jug is never seen or thought of. Or think of the bicycle. A man can possibly go home di'tihk if his legs are hot too tangled; or if they are he can Ho down; or if he can crawl into the buggy the family horse will carry him home with perfect sobriety and good sense. But a bl* cycle will not fellowship with a drunken person. It will break him wide open In a minute. A drunken man hasn't much chance on a street where electric cars can come down on him. The conditions of modern civilization all tend toward sobriety. The business of liquor making and selling is going to be less profitable and important. BASE BALL GALORE, DEATH OF J. H. WARREN.

People generally have not taken seri- usly the suggestion of a third term for Cleveland, but it seems that one man has, and that is Cleveland himself.. There is good reason for thinking so. To a man of colossal egotism no time ever comes when himself up as a hack num- jer. It is expected that a thousand Iowa veterans will attend tlio Louisville National Incampment. In many counties Old Settlers day is the real day of the year, and the custom of making much of it is becoming prevalent in the newly settled states of the west. Out at Dakota City, South Dakota, last ,veek, there was a gathering of 5,000 people to celebrate the day. The democrats haye been in a sweat since their state convention on account of the nomination of Geo. W. Jenkins, of Dubuque.for railroad commissioner.hebe- ing an employe of the Pennsylvania railroad company. It was not because of any compunction the democrats had against putting a railroad employe in the office, bnt because his nomination put an end to the campaign they were making against Gen. Drake for Governor. Jenkins' opponents were powerless, because that gentleman, having been nominated without soliciting the honor, declined to withdraw But now they have discovered a section of the railroad laws of the state which prohibits the admission of an employe of any railroad to the office of commissioner, and Jenkins may have to pull out. There is no urgency in the matter, except that it is bad form to be running a man for an office who is ineligible, us the voters will see to it that the other man is kept In the office. A case of death from blood poisoning caused by stepping on a Russian thistle is reported from Clinton, Iowa, The victim was a farmer's boy. This is a new terror to catalog with all the others credited to this abominable weed. A Register special from Ft. Dodge, bearing date of September 3, announces the engagement of Congressman J.

Gate City : There will never in the next fifty years be a legislature that will pass a license law high or low. When the pinch came the democrats would not do it and they would pretend that the failure would be because they could not get the high and low license democrats to agree. The fact is that it is a farming state and the people will act elect a liquor selling legislature. Atul there is no tendency toward license.

The Swea City base ball club came down from that thriving burg last Thursday afternoon to demonstrate to the assembled multitude at the Fair Grounds that they were the champion base ballists of the county. They brought a foot racer along and were willing to match him for $100 a side or anything reasonable, but didn't get a race. The game of ball they played after they got warmed up and got their second pitcher in the box was creditable and they held the Algona boys down so that at the find of the fifth inning theymade up their minds that they had their hands full. The best hit made this season was made during the f ame by Eells, of the Algona club, who nocked the ball "over the fence" in the vicinity of Floral Hall, and made a home run with plenty oi time to spare before it was found. At the end of 9 innings the score stood 9 to 9. In the 10th both clubs scored, leaving the tally even 10 scores each. Another inning was played without changing tho score, and the game was decided a tie, as darkness was coming on. The umpires were Dempster Ranks, of Swea City, and Guy Grove, of Algona. There was some kicking, but both gentlemen meant to be perfectly honest in their decisions. There is some talk of the county championship being settled by another game between Swea City and Algona at Bancroft next week. THE "NO BLOOMER GAME." The game of ball which took place Friday was something long to be remem beredin the annals of Algona base ball history. The county officers, or "Court House Rats," as they styled themselves, had challenged the real estate men to play, a game that would forever settle the question of superiority between them. The challenge had been accepted, and flaring bills proclaiming the fact that it was a "No Bloomer Game," called out-nearly as large _an audience as attended the bloomer game a few weeks ago. There was a regularly appointed staff of physicians and ambulance corps, an official reporter, and Harvey Ingham and Ike Finuell were named as bottle- holders, and L. II. Smith as umpire. The game was called about 4 o'clock with everyone in his place. The Court House nine were stationed as follows: Mart. Weaver, pitcher; Irv. Dodge, catcher; Sheriff Samson, 1st base; Clerk Crose, 2nd; Will Brunson, 3d; Prof. Schleicher, short-stop, and Auditor Calkins, Recorder Randall and Suryey- or Tellier in the field. The real estate men intended to change positions each inning and lined up as follows: Geo. C. Call, L. J. Rice, Melzar Haggard, Gus Peek, arren Dansou, EdgarBut- ler, C. J. Doxsee, J. S. Platt, Frank Chandler and Geo. Bailey. The ladies who were out in force to see the game, were frightened by the threatening aspect of the weather about five o'clock, and went home, but it took something more than dark and stormy looking clouds to stop that game. It was finished about 7 o'clock, just as it begun to rain, the score being 26 to 37 in favor of the county officers, To describe all of the brilliant plays made is beyond the power of an ordinary mortal. One of the most strikin figures in the game was genial SheriJ Samson, who attired in pants, shirt and socks, batted and ran arrouud the diamond with the same alertness and energy that has characterized his enforcement of the law among the north end boot-leggers. Clerk Crose, who used to belong to the old Irvington club, was right at home on the diamond and did some coaching that was worthy of a professional, Auditoi Calkins made a good record out in right field, and one of the features of the game was his chasing a fly over into the weeds where He "took a tumble. Deputy Auditor Weaver and Deputy Treasurer Dodge were the battery f 01 the Court House men and won undy ing fame. They make good officers and are good ball players, and to thei playing the winning of the game maj be credited. Weaver, who was pitch ing, got hit on. the arm and Scbteiche: was put mhis-pLaqe; $nd he also did good work- ' ' • ' The real "estate men had no regular battery and changed off pitching, while Frank Chandler caught during the whole game. Haggard, Peek, Rice and Call all distinguished themselves in the box. One of the notable plays was -a "home run" t>y Edgar Butler, who was making a desperate effort to make a score and in coming in at ft §:04 gate he fell and str«<$ his head on the home plate and turned a complete somersault without even losing his glasses. Haggard and Call made a Proliant double play and Platt won distinction fox- running bases gracefully. It is understood, that the court house gang have challenged the real estate men to play another game, the losing bide to furnish a supper, the chalen, gers to njaje two spores to the land men's oaei W is. JW»9»4 W ttow vyjll to a ball f ftisf L§ There Was great surprise, mingled with regret, expressed in Algofla Sat* urday afternoon* at the news of the death of 3< Hi Warren* at the hotne oi his son. Mis coming to town some ten days previously was so quiet that few knew of his presence. He had been taken sick at his home in Spearfish recently, but recovered sufficiently to admit of making the journey to his old Algona home, which he seems to have been eager to do. It is not unlikely that he realized that his end was near, and that he preferred to die in Algona. He was, lacking two days, 76 years old. The funeral was at 2 o'clock on Sunday afternoon, from the residence of his son, R. B. Warren, of the Upper Des Moines. The ceremonies of interment were conducted by the Masonic lodge, of which he was a charter member ,Rev. O. A. Stevens, pastor of the Baptist church, conducting the religious services. Following is the biographical sketch of Mr. Warren appearing in the Kos- stith County History: James H. Warren was born in Eden, Erie Co., N. Y., Sept. 4,1820. From 5 to 11 years of age he attended the district school, which was the extent of his education. When fourteen years of age he removed with his parents to Cherry Valley, Ashtabula Co., Ohio, where his elder brother had went the year previous to open up a farm in the heavy timber land in that portion of the state. James worked hard on the farm until 1846, when, with his widowed mother, two brothers and two sisters, he emigrated to the territory of Wisconsin. He selected his home in Hurlbud township, Dodge county, being an early settler there, and taking great interest in the development of the county. He was chosen town clerk at the first' town meeting held, and from that time until the spring of 1859 was elected to fill some office every year. Mr. Warren was married Sept. 16,1846, to Augusta B. Horton, then only fifteen years-of age. This union las been blessed with three children— Jiza L., wife of Hugh Waterhouse, of Cossuth county; Robert B. and Edward H., both of whom are printers. A-om 1840 to 1866 Mr. Warren worked irincipally at the carpenter and mill- vright trades. In June, 1859, he removed to. Arcadia, Trempealeau Co., Wis., remaining four years. While iviug there his home with all its. con- ents was destroyed by fire, .including \is. history of Dodge county, which was then in manuscript. He also had a hoice and carefully selected library of over 400 volumes, a number of which was then out of print and which he has lever been able to replace. This fire was a loss of several thousand dollars ,o him. In March, 1862, he removed to 3ati Claire, Wis., being employed in ,he summer season as a millwright in the extensive mills of Daniel Shaw & !'o., and in the winter in the pineries, in 1866 he sold his possessions in Eau Claire, built a flat boat of sufficient size ,o carry his family and goods down the Ohippewa to the Mississippi, and uhence to Dubuque, Iowa. There he sold his boat and traveled by rail from there to Iowa Falls, and came by wagons to Algona. Upon arriving at Algona Mr. Warren purchased for his son Liobert B., the Upper Des Moines office, for which he paid $600. Previous to that date Mr. Warren had never written more than two or three newspaper articles. He, however, threw Liis whole energies into the enterprise, and with the faithful labors of his son, who took charge of the mechanical department, he succeeded in making an excellent paper. He enlarged the paper from time to time, as necessity required, In 1872 he suld the old Washington, it being the first press brought to Iowa, and replaced it with .a $2,000 power press. He also procured a job press with all other necessary furniture. In 1875 Mr, Wairen sold this office with fixtures and good will. In July, 1869, he was appointed postmaster, holding the office three years. He was a master Mason, a member of Prudence Lodge, No. 205. Mr. Warren was a charter member of Algona Lodge, No. 234,1. O. O, F,, being a member of that order for nearly forty years, Since concluding his editorial labors here Mr. Warren has been associated with his son E. H, in newspaper work. Fattier and son established the West Bend Tribune, aud later the Spearfish, S, DM Mail. His work has always shown ability and vigor, and in his oc* cusional controversies he demonstrated So Faf We rtavfe All fJone ,6uf frtlty. —there is Need hi Vigilance. Mr. Fred Miller, of Plum Creek township, afiived bdine, Friday j ftoiu a visit to his old home afad friends in the east. Mr. Miller tomplains that the EfiptiBMCAN's i-efefeaee 16 Kltst siah thistles on his place have done him ati injustice by makifig it appeaf that the neighbors had to look after his this- ties itt his absence, iratti Wrong Was dphe the editor is to blame, as he has kaowa &ll aloiig that Mr, Millet Was not neglecting those thistles, but had begun the work of exterMlMtioti and made provision for keeping u$ the campaign before going east, as the RE- has, we, believe, said, and OLD OFFICERS HBROlllNiTBfr vehtioti Mehdmihated all the Old JL-UJUIJHJA.IN JUttS, \vt)j ueuevcj BIUU, auu any contiafy impression, if made^ has been due to a careless use of language, fof Which the editor is Willing to take all the blame. If all the f armers would wage as vigorous a campaign against the thistle as Mr. Millet is Waging there would be no danger of the pest getting a foothold. The thistle came up in a six^acre field of flax, and just as soon as Mr. Miller discovered the presence he promptly sacrificed the en* tire crop, cutting it down to kill the pests. Since then he has had the field explored at intervals to discover any surviving thistles, and there Will be no danger that any seed will be all lowed to mature. Mr, Miller says that it is very hard to find the small thistles, as they are just the color of the flax stubble, Right in this connection the REPUBLICAN will sound another note of warning. The seed that Mr. Miller sowed was probably out of a lot that other farmers were supplied from, In all human probability there are dozens of fields in this county sown with like seed, and on which the same kind of a crop is growing. It behooves every farmer to look sharply after his farm, and especially after his flax fields. The REPUBLICAN makes no apology for keeping these matters before the public. The Russian thistle has taken possession of large sections of the Dakotas and other states while the people were giving their attention to the currency question, in blissful ignorance of the seed that was being sown on their farms. tat f fefistfr%f, Stefrisori tot Shir* iff, fellier for SiifVSyof dfid Mofs6 for Coroner, Go in by Acclamation. 3.
