As it is, the law is only what it should be. PROF, CARROLUS?HE MAN. 27/75 As much interest, has been felt in the attitude of tlie house of representatives in regard to measures of financial relief as in tlmt of Cleveland. The house being overwhelmingly republican, and tliB white house lease of the democracy not having expired, there is a dead lock, politically, in the government. Wliatever the republicat house may do is liable to be vetoed il it passes the ^mullet of the nearly ev enly balanced somite, by a, democratic president, whose stubbornness and disposition to dictate to congress have been exnnipWieil on numerous occasions. Oh the other hand, it is not supposed that any recommendation from Cleveland will bo worth more than paper it is written on. It has been a foregone conclusion that no sweeping financial measure could be enacted under these circumstances, and the sole ilwl DSt He Will be Principal of the Algona Public Schools After the Holiday Vacation. HAVfi MOVED INTO A Man of Thorough Education, an Efficient Organizer and Instructor—The Unanimous Choice of the Board. question Inis been whether the republicans would come to the relief of the admistraUon to the extent of increasing HB revenues. The speech of Mr. Reed in accepting the speakership nomination of the republican caucus is'now before the country, and to the KisruuLicAN it seems as though it must have a more reasoning effect than anything that Cleveland has offered in his message. Mr. Heed, while realizing that "there are times when rest is as health-giving as exercise,'' yet recognizes that the finances of the gov- There was a meeting of the Algona school board, Saturday night, at which business of the first importance was transacted, in the choice of a principal or super-indent of the city schools. The regular meeting would have been held Monday evening, but to accommodate Judge Quarton. who was to gotollum- boldt to attend court Monday, the meeting was held Saturday evening as stated. The question of a successor to 1 rot. Gilchriat had been discussed from time to time, and a general understanding had been arrived at that Prof. A. B. Carroll, of Salina, Kansas, should be given preference. At this meeting formal action was taken, and Prof. Carroll was elected by the unanimous vote of the board. Prof. Carroll is well known to many teachers of Kossuth, as he has attended three of their county institutes. He was one of the instructors in an institute conducted by Prof. Eldridge, and was the conductor of the two succeeding institutes, one of which was under Where they will be happy to receive their friends and patrons and show them the best and most complete stock oi eminent are in an awful condition, and gives timely assurance that the house will "make every sacrifice, except of principle, to rescue our county from its temporary disaster." At the same time it is altogether unlikely that the republican congress is going to take any democratic diagnosis great success as a very thorough and of the case it undertakes to treat. There is a radical difference between the republicans and democrats in regard to the cause of the financial situation, and of course that must signify a difference of opinion as strongly and clearly marked in regard to any proposed cure. The republicans attribute the ills from which the treasury suffers to insufficient revenues in the main, and consistently with this belief they will probably make some few changes in tariff schedules, rather than give the president the chance to sign a bill f 01 the retirement of the greenback currency. The country got along very well with the greenbacks so long as the republicans made the tariffs, and in the meantime immense sums of interest money were saved by their use. In short, the house, being clothed with the right to initiate taxation, will exercise that right. If any body ever organized anywhere in the world was justified in expressing the opinions of its party through its acts, the republican home of representatives, after three emphatic votes of confidence in its party in three successive years, is entitled to do so.

Since he was in Algona in that capacity ho was at the head of the public schools at Shenandoah for five years, and subsequently he went to Salina, Kansas, where he served as superintendent for two years. He was given the unanimous vote of the Salina board, to remain, but owing to ill health he decided not to take up school work this year.

Kirk of Missouri, while all the school boards where he has worked give him strong and unanimous commendation. Prof. Carroll is in the neighborhood ot forty-five years of age and has a family. The work that Prof. Gilchrist has done in the school has given the highest satisfaction, but as he could not accept permanent employment, it was deemed best, considering the opportunity offered to secure an entirely satisfactory successor at this time, to act at once.

The REPUBLICAN was just going to press, last week, when the death of Mr. Wilson occurred, and was so unable to ascertain any particulars. It is now settled beyond any question that the act of self-destruction was not premeditated.
