There was a general desire here for a political speech from him during the campaign, but the Ohio state committee claimed his services, and the following, from the Ft. Dodge Messenger, tells of his pronounced success in campaigning in the Buckeye state: '.'Victor Dolliver is having a wild and wooly time down in Ohio. His meetings are immense,-especially where he spoke last year. Somebody there has pronounced him the Abraham Lincoln of: Iowa, and that seems to be the popular appellation for him, for it'how goes on the bills and in all the advertisements." The shoe'factory stock subscribers met at the court house Thursday night and elected a committee to investigate the condition and value of the property offered to the city. The meeting represented nearly all the stock and was marked by good feeling and- harmony. The matter was well canvassed and the selections were made by unanimous vote. The members of the committee are Ambrose A. Call, C. C. Chubb, J. W. Wadsworth, Geo. 0. Call L.' Lund, and the whole management of the negotiations was placed tin ttjeir hands.

Wednesday night, describe the scene following the giving away of the seats which broke up the meeting.' It seems that Bailey, of the Britt Tribune was there and as he has been putting on a good deal of mutton lately the board seats were subjected to a strain that had not been counted on. When they broke down in the midst of a roar oft applause led by Bailey', the latter went down with a thud that made the people think the floor had given way or the .building was collapsing, and naturally there was a stamped, under the strain of which a large section of the;seats went down. There was so much of a clatter that it was thought impracticable to have any more speaking that night. Gottlieb Bohn, an old settler who had resided for a quarter of a century on his farm in Plum Creek township, a few miles north of Algona, died Wednesday last, aged 78 years, after an illness of three weeks. He was born .and married in Germany and bad but recently celebrated bis golden wedding, He came to the United States and set-* tied in Washington county, Wisconsin, in 1858, In 1871 he came to. Kossuth and located on the quarter section where be mied, to which he added 160 acres by subsequent purchase. Mr. and Mrs- Bohn had twelve children, three of whom died in childhood.
