THE STATE PAUL The state fair last week came out better, financially, than for many years. The receipts were $31,0*0 from all sources, or about $15,000 over expenses. All of Just year's premiums will be paid, and all but $5,000 of this year's expenses will be met. The fair had the benefit of clear, though very hot weather. The exhibition was a suc^ cess, generally speaking, in all its departments, and the attendance was large, the splendid crop out-come of the season encouraging everyone to indulge in a holiday and manifest an in* terest in the exhibition. The management is clouded, however, with the more or less vigorously expressed distrust which has attached to it for the past few years. The State Register is doing a good thing in keeping the fair and its management to the front. The fair is an institution with which the state at large is so identified that its people want to know all about it. They are particularly interested in the fair because of the investment of their money in it in the payment of its debts and expenses, and interested because of their expectation that more of their money will be called for in the near future. The fact is that the financial condition and fantastic management of the fair is its most interesting annual exhibit. That is always first class. The crops may be withered by drouth, the hogs die of cholera, the horses be paralyzed by the epizootic, and the cattle perish from tuberculosis and corn stalk disease, but the state fair finances will continue to draw, as a spectacle of unfailing interest and the wonder of gods and men. The REPUBLICAN does not doubt that all the while the state lias been putting money into the fair the officials have been industriously taking it out, not in cash abstracted from its treasury, but certainly and confessedly in free admission, meal and carriage tickets used by the bushel for their own personal or political benefit, by which immense sums belonging to the treasuiy have been kept out of it, the inevitable deficiency resulting being regularly called for on the assembling of the legislature, and made up too often out of the resources of the tax payers of the state. It wai estimated that for the fair of 1894, 6,000 complimentary tickets, good for every day, were issued. How large an army of hungry but impecunious retainers was provisioned with meal tickets, or how many rode free in swell •carriages is not stated. At the last annual meeting this criminally profligate and corrupt management was condemned. A great hue and cry was made and great pretensions were made of a determination to cut off all free passes, and on the strength of the feeling of confidence by these means worked up, the citizens of DesMoines were induced to buy 20,000 tickets, and thu advance $10,000 for the fair outright. And now the Register claims that after demanding and receiving such sum from DesMoines, and after making such protestations against the ruinous free pass system, the officers, directors and managers in charge last week made profuse distribution of free passes to everything in sight, while the treasury went lean. And what is more to the point, the reports of the officials themselves seem to fully justify the ugly charge. The vice-president re ports having used 15 complimentaries good for all the week, 635 assistants tickets, 262 meal tickets and nine car riage tickets. One superintendent gathered in out of the barrel 160 com- plimentaries good for the whole week 502 single admissions, 2,979 assistants tickets admitting to the grounds, 51 ..carriage tickets and 50 meal tickets This showing will be a surprise, no doubt, to those who had concluded from the unsparing denunciation o: the old administration by the new tha we should have reform with a big R this year. The people of the state, as well as those of Des Moines, very naturally are indignant at the unseemlj record that has been made. The Reg isters proposition, to pass a law plac ing the control of the fair in the hands of a board of trustees appointed by the state, may be a trifle adventursorae but if the state is going to be levied on to make good the filchings of the insti tution it is not unreasonable to de mand that the state shall have the power to remove the offending officials and exercise that power, Some of the Chicago people are in for laving the anniversary of the gioat fire nadc a legal holiday. Here is a valuable pointer to the Spirit Lake massacre en- hnsiasts. The Ohio republican campaign was opened on Tuesday of last week by an immense meeting at Springfield. The speech- js were made by Senator Sherman, Gover- lor McKinley, Mr. Foraker, candidate for Jnited States senator, and Mr. Bushnell, candidate f jr governor. It is not often hat so mn:h brains is represented at one meeting, even in Ohio. This is tbe right view of the case. T Buncombe's withdrawal wonld be great blessing if it would stop the folly o putting names and f,ws ou the soldier' monument. It ought to be erected jn memory of all aud with special notice - npue. • All the dailies were filled with reports o the races for the American cup at |?ev York last week between the American yacht Pefeuder, anfl the English y$< Valkyrie }JJ. The Defender won by a flae margin in tfee first rape, but iq the se Passes Away Saturday Afternoon, Ending a Long Illness. The papers are giving wide circulation o the p/ophecy of Congressman-elect Sam Clark, that Iowa will not adopt a license law in the next fifty years. Gover- lor Larrabee used to say of the prohibi- ,ory law: "And you nor I will not live to see that law repealed." The Chicago Methodist ministers were slightly shocked, last week, when Hardie, the English socialist, in an address which 10 was invited to deliver before their :>ody, denounced the hanging of the Haymarket anarchists and eulogized them as pioneers of a new religion. There was uch an uproar that Hardie had to sit down, and then the preachers took the floor and belabored him soundly, after which demonstration of their dissent he ,vas allowed to finish his speech. Itseems that there are a few preachers of that denomination in Chicago who sympathize with Hardie, and that one of them is Wm. Jpkwcett, who used to bo. a loud prciuher n this state. It is a sign of strength and confidence that is given by the Hawaian government n the parnon of Queen Lil. There is no doubt but Col. Watterson captured the hearts of the war veterans at Louisville last week. Here is a specimen paragraph from his speech of welcome: There is not a southern man today who would lightly brook the effort of i State to withdraw from the Union. Slavery is jone. Secession is dead. The Union, with ts system of Statehood still intact, survives, and with it a power and glory among men passing the dreams of the fathers of the Republic. You and 'I may fold our arms ana go to sleep, leaving to younger men to hold and defend a property ten fold greater than that received by us, its ownership unclouded, and its title deeds recorded in heaven I The St. Paul veterans won the day at Louisville and that city will get the national encampment for 1S9G. It is a convenient location from Iowa. Up to date both parties have criticised the other on account of the participation of office holders in caucuses and ' conventions, but the republicans are the first' to testify their belief in its ill effects by shutting them out. The New York republican county committee voted to debar office holders from their conventions, and now it remains to be seen whether the excluded class will give up their salaries or submit to the proposed abridgement- of their political privileges. The first trial of the primary election system by the republicans of Emmet county will take place next Saturday, the voting being done at the regular election precincts. The vote is on the nomination of county officers. This is the fairest and most sensible method of nominating candidates that can be employed. SEPTEMBER BEADING. In his installment of the Life of Napoleon 33onaparte for the Septembei Century Wm. M. Sloane writes instructively of the society and etiquette o the French court, and of the general con dition of Euope at the time of theassump tion of the life consulate, and in line witl the development of Napoleonic- literatun which the prevailing enthusiasm hai stimulated, an article on Life in the Tuil cries under the Second Empire, written by one who was an inmate of the palace is begun. Recollections of Henry Clay by Madeleine McDowell, are persona rather than political. This number rich in fiction, and one of the best storie is The Cup of Trembling, by Mary Hal lock Foote, The most attractive and iinestillus.trat ed magazine for young folks is St, Nicolas This is so the year around, and the Sep tember number is one of the finest. Th Battle on Wheels, Carrier Pigeons of Sau ta Catalina, A Boy of the Frst Empire and An Onteora Visitor are among th tno articles and stories of this numbet Theodore Roosevelt, who is something o a hero himself, contributes the fifth in stallment of Hero-Tales from America History. The Midland Monthly for Septembe opens with an article by Leigh Leslie o Grant at Galena, and in line with this an well timed, is the Midland War Sketch c the Battle of Chickamauga. Among th articles is one from Harvey Ingham, Ink pa-du-tah's Revenge, a contribution t early local history which throws light up on the motive behind the Spirit Lak massacre.

Dixon, superintendent f the Algona public schools, died at lis home in this place on Satwrday af- eriioon, at 3 o'clock. His illness dates back to the first of July or earlier, and was of the nature of nervous exhaustion and inanation, He had no desire for 'ood, but rather a decided aversion to t, and this was the worst feature of his case, and one which foreboded only 11. He at two periods of his illness made a quite decided gain, inspiring ,he hope of recovery, but speedly he ost all that had been gained and the ;eneral history of his case was a steady oss of strength and vital power. Jt was not until Tuesday last, however, ,hat all hope was given up by )r. Scott, who had labored assiduously for his recovery. The funeral was from the Congregational church, of whose services he had usually been an attendant during health, on Monday afternoon at 2:30 'clock. The exercises were under the direction of the school board, who act- d as the bearers. The hearse, on its way from the residence to the church, passed through open files of the pupils and teachers of the public school, and when the casket was placed in front of the pulpit the pupils passed through the church in double files and viewed the remains of their dead leader, each placing a bouquet of flowers upon the asket. The pupils of the ninth and tenth rooms occupied reserved seats in the auditorium, as did the teachers and the school board. In the pulpit were Prof. J. C. Gilchrist, acting sup- irintendent of the school, and Rev's. 3-. W. Kennedy, E. P. McElroy and O. A. Stevens. The brief burial service of the M. E. church was read by Rev. Kennedy, and a solo, "One Sweetly Solemn Thought", was touchingly rendered by Dr. A. L. Rist. A feeing prayer was offered by E. P. McElroy, and duet followed by Dr. Rist and Miss Lillie Ranks. The principal -address on the occasion was delivered by Prof, Gilchrist, .who had known .him almost from .his boyhood, when::he worked on a farm near Monticello. Be- ginting, he'read this sketch of the deceased: biographical . Henry Dixsou was born in Oneida county, uSTew York, February, 1847, and so was 48 years and seven months of age : at his death. Born and educated in a farm home, he took part in all the hard work incident to farm life. The meager opportunities of a common school were all that he ever enjoyed in his youth as the source of obtaining knowledge. These opportunities he must have improved with great industry, for through them belaid the foundations on which he built in subsequent years a really fine scholarship. When he was seventeen years of age his parents died, and he remained four or five years longer in the neighborhood of his birth, and then came, probably in 1868, at the age of twenty- one, to Iowa and joined some of his relatives near Monticello, Jones county, where he resumed the occupation of farming. His movements, for a few years at this'period of his history are not well known, but it is certain that he taught some part of the years in country schools, at one time in the vicinity of Waterloo. In the year 1873 Hon. A. S. Kissell organized a normal school at Des Moines, and Mr. Dixon became a student therein and received the inspiration as well as the qualification that turned him into the life work of the teachers' profession, a natural consequence of the tuition of so enthusiastic an educator as .Prof. Kissell. Mr. Dixon's standing as a student in this normal school drew to him the attention of some of the school officers of Des Moines, and he was employed as a teacher in that city during the year 1874. A year or two later he became principal of a ward school, the house for which was known as the Webster building. In 1887 he was elected superintendent of the public school of Algona and has held that position until the coming on of the sickness that has produced his .death. His marriage to Miss Lizzie Holland took place in 1879 and out of this union there has been born five children, Such are the few simple but decisive events that have entered into the life that terminated in our midst on Saturday last at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, Prof. Grilcbrist spoke of the deceased from his personal knowledge largely, beginning when on the Jones county farm, flis special observation of him began when be was a. student at the Des Moines normal school. He had known him ever since, and bad been impressed with, his modest, retiring, unassumiDK disposition, his generous and unseJflsb nature, his careful con* sideration for others, and his cpurteouj and gentlemanly manner. Jte gaid bis intellect was one of marked power and action, and bis scholarship was of no mean proportions, 01 his professional career he said that h§ jnade a thorough study of educatiopal questions and of feaphlBgj WP « gOftd i»T aa extent organ, izer wft adwjms,tr9$ar, of un%l?af ^ w ' Death has his rigofotis lav^s, unparalleled, unfeeling; All prayers to him are vain; Cruel, he stops his ears, and, deaf to our appealing, lie leaves us to complain. The poor man in his hut, with only thatch for cover, Unto these laws must bend; The sentinel that guards the barriers of the Louvre, Cannot our kings defend. To murmur against death, in petulant defiance, Is never for the best; To" will what God doth will, that is the only science That gives us any rest. A softg by the school and choir, "God be with thee till we meet again," closed the exercises. The temains rested in the church until the 6 o'clock train, when they were taken to Des Moines, Mr. Holland going as escort. The body Will be held in a receiving vault until the family can go to Des Moines. The church was very handsomely and effectively decorated by the teach* ers and pupils of the school, and numerous floral offerings covered the casket and were massed upon the pulpit and railing. The church, including the lecture room, was well filled by the general public. Mrs. Dixson was her husband's only nurse and watcher during his entire sickness up to the last few days, when anxious friends insisted upon sharing her vigils. She is naturally much worn with the intense strain sO long endured and by the great loss sustained. She has the deep sympathy of the people of Algona, by whom she is held in the most unqualified respect and esteem. She has endeared herself to her neighbors by her womanly qualities, and there will be universal regret at her departure. It is expected that she will make her future home in Des Moines, where her relatives reside. Five bright and interesting children mourn with their mother their common bereavement. Maude is fifteen years of age, Henry eleven, Fred nine, Helen five and May three. Those who were in school were particularly noted for good scholarship. Prof. Dixson will be remembered for the system and rigid discipline to which he obliged teachers and pupils to submit. In the perfection and constant working condition of its machinery no school ever excelled the Algona school under his superintendence. He manifested a praiseworthy zeal in be- behalf of the school in the matter of oratorical contests, and on no occasion did the pupils make public'appearance without due preparation. O^he success which he. made in his professionoftthe basis of the merely elementary education of his boyhood indicated a more than ordinarily bright intellect, 0i's' well as .great industry. He was a genial man to ineet, and those who were associated with him socially will feel his loss with especial keenness. ' THE NEWS AT DES MOINES. Sunday morning's Register says: Mr. P. S. Holland and his sisters have been called to Algona to attend the funeral of their brother-in-law, Prof, W. H. Dixson, who died yesterday at 3 p. m. Mr. Dixson was one of the prominent educational men of the state, having been superintendent of the Algona schools for the past eight years. Prior to that he was superintendent Of Webster City schools fpr five years, having gone there from East Des Moines, where he had been principal of Webster school, and at one time he was a member of the West Des Moines corps of teachers. He leaves a wife and five children, the youngest being but three years. DEATH OF MBS. SPENCEIl'S MOTHEU. Mrs. Col. Spencer returned home from Wisconsin on Saturday last. Her mother, Mrs. E. M, Cameron, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Harrison Preston, of Eau Claire, on Monday, Sept, 5, and the funeral was from the M. E. Church at Sun Prairie, at 9 o'clock on the Thursday morning following. The deceased was 87 years of age, having been born at MaraeJlus.N. Y., in 1808. She was married to Elijah Rowley and lived in 1 MarceUus until 1855, when.the family moved to Sun Prairie, Wis,- There were three daughters, one of whoin died in Marcellus, Since being left a widow, in ;187l, Mrs, Cameron has divided her tjme between her old nome in Wisconsin and that of her daughter in Eau Claire. Her last illness was of eighteen months' duration, during which time she was a § reat sufferer, The funeral service at qn Prairie was conducted by her pastor; Rev. G. E. Gilbert.

Piguf Today—WilkiftSbtl Leads Forlorn fibpe* The democratic county convention meets to-day foir the fiomiaattoii of a eouttty ticket. On' the day of the last deitiodratic convention, the REfufcti" CAN gave a Very correct synopsis of its proceedings before it was held, and the type had been up several days, but it is impracticable to perform a like service for the public this time, for the. reason that the democrats themselves have, probably, no very clear idea what they will do. The most that they can say for sure is that it does not matter, as the winning ticket has already been nominated. It is easy enough to say, however, that on the one question of the super* intendency the slate is made up, and that J. J. Wilkinson will be the democratic candidate. There has been some nervousness in democratic circles in regard to Mr. Wilkinson's candidacy, which has been mooted for some time, and in order to quiet the apprehensions of the faithful, who would not want to throw over-board one republican known to be unusually well qualified, for the sake of booming another republican, it is understood that si quiet investigation has been going on for some time into Mr. Wilkinson's antecedents, and it has been found that he was a rock-ribbed, copper-toed and brass bound democrat out in Nebraska, and Mr. W. being willing enough to run for the office, the matter has been settled and disposed of. The names of the other figure heads will be given next week, MR. HANNA DECLINES TO BUN. Thos. Hanna, of Burt, has, indicated his decision not to accept the populist nomination for the legislature, and it is understood that his formal declination has been sent to the chairman of last week's convention. The populists did well to nominate Mr. Hanna, presuming that he would not decline., to run, as he undoubtedly would haye polled more votes than any other man would do on that ticket. He is a good man and has the confidence of those who know him. What the populists will do now cannot be foretold. They have quite a number of men who- are better than their party, taking the RE-PUBLICANS estimate of the latter, but they likely feel just like Mr. Hanna does, when it comes to the proposition to make a run for an office they don't want, and which no populist has any show of getting. The honest truth probably is that while these gentlemen are wholly loyal to their party principles, they are quite resigned to the idea that the place is reserved for Mr. Mayne. NO FUSION.

Or did the populists refuse to go into a "deal?" Why these uncomplimentary allusions? Here is the Courier's account: The populist 'convention Tuesday was not a very massive affair. The same old crowd. were out, and they nominated part of a ticket: There were just eight pops and one reporter present. The faithful were J. E Blackford, A. Zahlten, S. H. McNutt Wm. Strickler, W. F.
