Holmes and Theodore Dnrrafat, attd both were found guilty. Their ctitnes were numerous and brutal, and they will get less sympathy than the usual murderer. The hearing oh the application for a now trial for Harry HayWard was had on Monday and a decision of the Minnesota supreme court in the case is expected in a few days* Little doubt exists as to the action of the court. It is generally expected that the new trial will be refused, and that Hayward will hang next month • V The governor of Arkansas won a decisive victory over the thugs of the United States in heading off the prize fight arranged for between Corbett and Fitzsimmons, which after the Texas defeat was advertised to come off at Hot Springs last Thursday. In spite of the active assistance of local peace officers both of the fighters fell into the hands of officials under orders from Gov. Clarke and thev were glad to agree to leave the state on condition of their release. It is doubtful if either pf thpgg men wanted to fight. Each maintained hia courage by mouthy protestations, but each was apparently willing to be restrained and to have the hearing in his case posponed beyond the day set for the fight. This Victory of the law ought to mark the end of prize fighting in the United States, aad probably it will. It has demonstrated that the law against the brutal practice which exist in every state in the Union can be enforced whenever a determined effort is made, and no governor seems willing to have his state disgraced by such exhibitions. *«* It is noW'deflnitely settled that Chicago is to have the proposed Lake Front park. The city of Chicago and the Illinois Central railroad company have settled their differences, and Work will soon be begun on what will likely be one of the most beautiful parks in the world when,.completed. The whole northwest is interested in this grand project, as it is in everything calculated to. improve jbhe.^me- tropolis of this section of the Union.. The plans provide for the sinking of the railroad tracks and the filling in of a large area of the lake. The park Will center somewhere near Madison' street. The Mfnttietsbtirg Ro'pofter says that a $25,000 law Suit will be on the docket for the nofcb term of court 1ft Palo Alto county. The suit is brought, by the estate of James L. Canon against the Milwaukee railroad company for $25,000dam- ages for the killing of James L. Canoft, something over a year ago. Mr. Canon was a car examiner in the employ of the company at Perry, iowa, and while &m* ployed at ibis work In the yards at Perry, a train was backed against the car he was at work on with sufficient force to run it over him, killing him instantly. In the published compilations of the' census bureau the present population and gains of ohe counties in this neighborhood are given as follows: Palo Alto IS cfed- ited with 13,109, Clay 11,377« Htimboldtli,- 431, Pocahontas 12,443, tetamet 7,619, Dickinson 6,023 and Kossuth 18,345. In the five years since the census of 1890 Palo Alto made a gain of 2,791, Clay 1,968, Huinboldt 1,595, Pocahontas 2,889, Emmet3,345, Dickinson 1,695 and Kossuth 5,225. Kossuth has made a gain within the five-years equal to the total present population of Dickinson county, less 708. The American Economist makes an effective showing of the results of the democratic tariff law. It shows that England has sold to the United States more woolen goods by upwards of $17,000,000 this year so far, than she sold us during the corresponding months of 1894, and that at the same time England has bought less of the United States during the same period than last year by $15,000,000. We bought more from England and sold her less than under the McKinley bill. That is the result so far of the democratic attempt to secure a foreign market at the expense of American manufacturers. C* fe. Paul Writes Manly Traits. lie Had the Qualities of the Successful Pioneer Doctor— Incidents of Mis Early Practice. *** John D. Rockefeller, the head of the Standard Oil monopoly, has given the Chicago University another million dollars, and promises two million more on conditions which will probably be met. In one view of the case such gifts have a bad influence, as they cause such men as Bockefeller, one of the most unscrupulous commercial pirates of modern times, to be lauded to the skies as a benefactor of the race. * # * There is no doubt but there is a strong feeling in this country demanding that the government take a determined stand in support of the Monroe doctrine and against the continued aggressions of England in Yenezuelian affairs. The Monroe doctrine is the unwritten law of the United States. It declares the purpose of this country not to permit any European power to extend its possessions or acquire new territory anywhere on the American continent. It was first enunciated in a message to congress by President Monroe in 1823, in the following language: We owe it to candor and to the amicable relations existing between the United States and the allied powers to declare that we should consider any attempt on their part to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety. With the r exist" ine colonies or dependencies of any European power we have not interfered, and shall not interfere; but with the govern• ments which have declared their independence and have' maintained it, and whose independence we have, on great consideration and, Just principles, acknowledged, we could not view an interposition for oppressing them or controlling Irt any other manner their destiny by any European power in any other light than as a manifestation of an unfriendly disposition toward the United States. The weakness and timidity pf the Cleveland administration in asserting the rights and guarding the interests of America and Americans abroad hag emboldened foreign powers to »ake audacious claims and demands 'wJWph they would n°t generally consid* ey ft safe fa make, But the adminis* ^ration, itself seems to be waking up , JW»4 probably ft will have enougfc *> challenge England on the the wrtgsga- W {iww l« Oortw w Magazines, The Century celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary this month. It is a great and good magazine and deserves many more years of the prosperity which it now en•joys. iMrs. Humphry Ward's latest novel, "Sir George Tressady," is commenced in, the number, and James Bryce discusses the Armenian Question. . la the Novetobei''immbbr of the Harper's Thomas Hai-dy's latest novel, "Hearts' Insurgent," reaches its' melancholy end, to the great relief of ordinary readers? who fail to appreciate the decidedly morbid character of the story. Julian Ralph brings to light other phases of Chinese life under the'title of "Plumblossom Beebe's Adventures" and William Dean Howells contributes an "Literary Boston Thirty Years Ago." All readers of Scrlbiier's will be sorry that Robert Grant's papers on "The Art of Living" have been brought to a close. They were bright, pointed and certainly well portrt,yed American life. One of.the notable features of the magazine. ; this mouth is an article ;pn vEr.eder.ick, Mac- monnjes, thw taleiitod American -'sculptor.- The paper is illustrated with photographs of the artist's works. An article upon Louis Pasteur, his life work, and its value to the world is one- of the special features of the November Review of Reviews. Albert Shaw has a paper upon the "Recent Progress of Italian Cities." McClure's of November contains the first installment of a series of articles to be printed on Abraham Lincoln. The facts are chiefly gained from unpublished manuscripts. Octave Thanet has one of her characteristic short stories in the magazine entitled "The Merry Thanks giving of the Burglar and the Plumber.' It is concerning certain phases of the labor question, of which she has been writing of late. Anthony-Hope and Rudyard Kipling contribute to the fiction department. "The Tragic Trees," a decidedly realistic tale of mob-law, is concluded in the Dr* J, Mi Pride came to Whittemote about seventeen years ago ffomHamfJ* ton* Iowa, Where he had lived With Df» Harritnan several years studying meb>- icine. Me graduated from the state University of the Iowa Medical Department in 1878. He practiced med* icine in Whittemore about twelve years and having located there When he was as poof as poor can be, as were most of his neighbors, many incidents occurred of both comical and serious Character showing how well he was fitted for the position of pioneer doctor among pio* neer patients. Me had the happy fac* ulty of adjusting himself to his sur^ roundings* Me got trusted for a horse ; and saddles the horse died, -and when' asked by his desponding Wife "What"in the world will we do now'?'' his cheer* ful reply was,"O, I'll just buy another" as if it was only necessary to say "buy 5 ' attditwas bought. He got a horse however that didn't suit him and being of a speculative turn of mind he accosted Marvey Dailey one day and stumped him for a trade. "Huw will you trade horses, Gappy?" he asked with his eye on a fine animal of Harvey's. "O, I don't know," was Harvey's reply, "Mow will you trade'?" The Doctor didn't want to say how he would trade, so Marvey offered to trade for $10 to boot. The Doctor wanted the horse, and not being possessed of ten dollars offered to give the required amount if he would take it out in doctoring. Then Harvey wan tod to know who he was. Finding that he was talking to the new doctor, they became very friendly and traded horses, Mr. Dailey agreeing to take $6 to boot instead of $10 and accepting the Doctor's offer to take it out ill doctoring. He had an accident the next spring in trying to cross Cylinder creek which came very near costing both his own and his horse's life. Being on the west side of ifand having a very sick patient on the other side, he selected a spot where he thought he could cross all right. Gathering up his blanket and getting his feet up on the seat (he now owned a cart) he urged his horse off the bank at what he thought was the place he wanted. Down went the horse all over and he and the cart of course plunged in immediately ' after, The current was very swift and he was washed off the cart. Managing to struggle ashore and crawl out of the icy water he looked for his horse and cart. Alas! there they were rolling and tumbling along, two-thirds of the time out of sight beneath the ice and raging current, the horse seemingly already drowned. The Doctor ran along down the bank, grab- ing at cart or horse whenever one of horn came near enough, until finally n turning a sharp bend, the outfit anded on a point' across the stream 'rom him where the horse which seemed possessed with wonderf uLpowj ers of, resigtinjr frowning, scrambled out. Here was 'a predicament bad enough, several miles from a house}' larkness at hand and wet and hivering, with his horse on the other ide of the stream. But always cheer- ul, her does the only thing to be done, tarts for the nearest house, meeting a man who knew the fords better than he did he got across to his horse and got back to town, miserable indeed but always cheerful. This same spirit of cheerfulness in adversity characterized m last moments on his death bed. There his greatest concern was how to avoid troubling those who were trying ;o ease him and to cheer and encourage ;iis sorrowing wife. Becoming tired in a few moments of one position, he, would attempt to move himself rather than ask those with him to help him. Several hours before final dissolution, came to him, he had dropped into a troubled slumber, evidently realizing his condition and the need of stimula^ tion and knowing the remedies we were using he called in his sleep, "Boys pass the strychinne."

Elections were held yesterday in thirteen states. These were Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Ohio Massachusetts, Kentucky,, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Mississippi, Virginia and Utah. The latter state held its first election'since its admission into the Union, electing a full state ticket, a legislature and county and township officials. The legislature elected yesterday will elect two United States senators. COMPARING VOTES. The proper comparison of this year's vote in the state and county is with the vote of 1893, when we had a governor and legislature to elect, as we have this year. It would not be proper to compare this year's vote with that of 4 'last year, when we had a congressional campaign. There is a national issue in all state elections, but it is a direct issue in the election' of congressmen; and national questions- sire then most prominently in,the public^mind. The fact has been kept before the voters this year that the legislature of next, winter will elect Senator Allison's successor, but senatorial elections dp not bring out such a voters congressional, because not directly in the hands of the people. •In 1893 the republicans of Iowa polled 207,089 votes and the democrats 174,879, on governor, the plurality for Jackson being 32,192. In Kossuth county in 1893 there were 1760 republican votes cast, 1375 democratic,!^ people's and 33 prohibitionist. The republican plurality was 385 and the majority was 201. This is what we have to compare with this year. GREAT REPUBLICAN VICTORIES. •- The republicans claim majorities in te'Vdf the thirteen states holding elections yesterday. Estimates are 75,000 in Nejtf York, 80,000 in Ohio and20,000 in Ne\y Jersey. Maryland is republican and has a republican legislature, which will elect a United States senat- .or.

In the Cosmopolitan is an article by Theodore Roosevelt upon the suggestive subject, "Taking the New York Polic out of Politics."'It is illustrated with cartoons concerning the matter takei from the daily newspapers, I. Zangwil has a story of the Jews in Rome entitled "Joseph tho Dreamer." There is also an interesting article by A. F, Oafton on "Identifying Criminals." J. T. Trowbridge, the noted writer of stories for boys, begins the tale of "The Prize Cup" in the November St. Nicholas, It promises to have a decidedly complicated plot. James Otis still holds the attention of his youthful readers with the story of "Teddy and Carrots," two small newsboys whbse adventures furnisU no little amusement as well as excitement. Lawerenpe Hutton tells of three pets of his in an interesting article entitled "Three Pegs," • ..',".--...'!" • -'•" WESLEY PEMOCRACY, Tribune: The Britt coi tingent that went to Wesley Monday to hear Dolliver speak had an awful nice ride and they didn't hear him either. He took another course and passed leaving Wesley to the east of his route. However he was there last night and talked republicanism until no democrat near Wesley will wink \t you stick a fence post in his eye. In fact the democracy of Wesley is so near dead that a tuner* al sermon would be more appropriate over the-remains than any admonition that ca» be administered to the corpse. CAN §TWFF TH1?

The question aroused him and remembering what he had said, smilingly repeated "Please pass the strych : nine," adding, "Don't I need a little more stimulation?" In conclusion it is safe to add that not adeath could be more universally regretted in this vicinity than that of our esteemed brother physician, a friend as well as a physician to his patrons. C.

The day was warm and generally fine, but there was v a very light fall of rain, which did not interfere with the business in hand, Contrary to expectation the vote was large, a fact probably due to the close fight on local offices. Carriages were numerous on the streets, and lukewarm electors were given free rides to and from the polls. The total vote was 611. This was 41 votes more than were polled last year, but 12 less than in 1893 and 16 less than in 1892. The republican vote was 349, the heaviest ever polled in Algona, and the republican plurality was largest, 204. In 1892 we had only 126 plurality for Harrison, but democratic administration brought it up to 164 in '98, then to 199 in . '94. All the wards this year returned good republican pluralities, the first scoring 69, the-second 59 V the third 17 and the fourth; 59. Each ward except the third gave a majority for every republican candidate. In that ward the democrats got .majorities for all.the men they worked for. . Mjr.Mayne.'s plurality for the legislature in Algona was 205. : Col. Spencer for treasurer received'an even 400 votes to 103 for -Dorweiler, and his clear majority was 297. -Samson for sheriff had 323 to 187 for Chri&tensen, his majority being 136. * Reed's plurality was cut down to 87, he ,h>ving 272 votes, Wilkiqspni286;^n^ ^icfrier'^ Burton's majority- in to WP was 194; - • " ' ' The jail tax in Algo'ria was given 222 •majorityv there being 299 votes for it and 77 against.
