The Emmetsburg Democrat has been reading the Courier, aud in its reading takes our cotemporary to mean what it says in reference to Prof. Webster's historical lectures here, which it does not. Inflamed by the Courier's too sweeping language, amounting to a gross carricature, the Democrat says: The people of Emmetsburg can feel thankful that they did not accept the offer of Prof. Webster, of Chicago, to deliver a series of lectures at $15 per night. Had they done so, they would have had an opportunity of learning that Jefferson was an anarchist; that Jackson was a stumbling fighting- cock; that the Declaration of Independence was an inflamatory document; and that it would have been as well if there had been no American revolution. Such is the account the Algona papers give of his lectures in that c)ty. The Professor can also feel fortunate that his offer was not accepted by either of the lecture committees of Emmetsburg. The language was treasonable to spirit to American pride and American honor and, had he attempted to deliver such slanderous utterances in the presence of manly Emmetsburg citizenship, he would have been promptly given a free pass outside the city limits. The fact that this was not clone in Algona shows that its citizens have too much consideration for individuals who would destroy the spirit of our free institutions if they could. If Prof, Webster had quoted Jefferson with the reckless disregard of truth with which these editors have quoted him, he might easily have made him out an anarchist. He did not, in fact, produce anything for or against that proposition that was new to students of history. He did not call Jackson "a stumbling fighting cock," nor did he call him a "choleric Indian fighter,"as one historical writer does in a book just out. What he said in regard to the declaration was that, in his judge- ment, many, though not all of the in dictments against England, were not justified, The Courier complained because the Professor held that the revolution was not legal. It was surprised that the revolution was not provided for by act of parliament. The Professor did not hint at any such sentiment as that the revolution was a mistake, nor did be say anything treasonable, unless the Jacksonian definition of treason be taken in preference to the Websterian. In Algona a roan may doubt the superior statesmanship of Jackson and nobody call him a traitor, Jt is possible Prof. Webster might have been offered violence in Emwetsburg. Jt is fair to leave that to the Emmetsburg paper. Unless the Emmetsburg democrats could think of stronger arguments than those in Algona could that would have been their only resource, JNQJIAM Sunday's DesMoines Register makes a suggestion to which the legislature, when it comes to the work of electing irwgteea for the several state institutions, may well give heed, It is MS fol? lows; f Mr University he is just the man to elect. He is the kind of man Iowa wants to look after her educational institutions. The institutions of learning which have been most prosperous are those which have placed the guardianship of their interests in the hands of the intelligent and progressive men educated in their own halls. Our denominational institutions are to some extent restricted in the choice of trustees by church lines and considerations of property from which liberal endowments are expected to pay for honors, but state institutions recognize no such limitations, and in that respect they have the advantage. The Agricultural college has been greatly be'nefitted by such men as Shaw, Hungerford, Say lor and Boardman on its board of trustees. The Register's suggestion is one to be commended. Mrs. Schaffter, widow of the late C. A. Schaffter, editor of the Eagle Grove Gazetic, was married, a few days ago, to II. M. Hughes, superintendent of the northern Iowa division of the Chicago & Northwestern railway. They will make their home at Eagle Grove. J. J; Bruce, editor of the Eolfe Reveille, has investigated the petition under which "mulct" saloons have been operating in Pocahontas county and found them to be short over 500 of the required names. GOT THE LOST GOTTLIEB. Gottlieb Schuerle Arrives in Algona Monday, to Claim His Inheritance. The Newspaper Story of His Mysterious Disappearance Finds Him, Sunday, in Sioux County, Gottlieb Schuerle has arrived in Algona and solved the mystery of his long absence. He has also deprived the newspapers of a continued story of more than usual interest. The newspapers have the credit for restoring him to an inquiring world, for last Sunday moyning Gottlieb was in blessed ignorance of the s tir his name was making, While he was yet enjoying his Sunday morning slumbers, however, the farmer with whom he was living out in Sioux county, and who had risen and built the fire and then began posting up on the news, ran across the story of the hungry Cedar Rapids spinster, and presently he called out excitedly to the sweetly sleep- ing'young man; "Gottiiebl Gottlieb! here vas your name in de bapersl" From that moment Gottlieb began to take a great intirest in AJgona, and the result was that on Monday evening he arrived here and presented himself before-Postmaster Hinchon and other dignitaries of the place and signified his readiness to draw any money that might be saved up for him, Yesterday he was receiV' ing the congratulations of his friends. He reports the most of the time since leaving AJgona he spent at Pipestone, Minnesota, but a week ago Friday he went to Boyden, where he had friends, and where he learned that he was wanted. Tt will take six weeks to get Gottlieb's $800 from Germany.

The Enterprise is a Complete Success— List of Subscribers and Rules for Working the Phones. Algona may be slow in some matters, but when she takes a thing up she does so in a manner to insure an unqualified success, and a good illustration; we have right here in the workfng up. of the telephone exchange. Every number on the switch board is already taken, the connections are made, and 1 ? everything is in excellent running order. The phones are well distributed, connecting with seventeen residences, two banks, four or more real estate offices, several abstract firms, five attorneys, two coal firms, one physician, a grain elevator, a lumber and wood office, a printing office, two hotels, a clothing store, three grocery houses, a shoe store, one meat market, three livery stables, a steam laundry, an agricultural implement house, both depots, Spurbeck & Lambert's supply house, the sheriff's ofllce, the treasurer's office and Hobart station. Through any phone in the exchange immediate connection can be made with the toll lines north, east aud west, and thus communication is easy on the west with Whittemore, Emmetsburg, West Bend, Spencer, Estherville and Spirit Lake. Connection is made also with Burt, Bancroft, Ledyard, Elmore, Blue Earth, Swea City, Armstrong, Buffalo Center, Gerinania, Thompson, Leland, Forest City, Corwith, Wesley, Britt, Garner, and Mason City. From New Hampton and Waucoma on the east lines extend to nearly all the towns of northeastern and central Iowa, southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin Very few people have heretofore realized the extent of this business. Telephone circuits are in operation in several neighbor towns, among them Mason City, with about 100 phones, Spirit Lake with fifty and Spencer with 75 to 80. Albert Lea has a big exchange, It is expected that Emmetsburg will secure this much de sired equipment, and that Bancroft, our chief town in northern Kossuth, will have one in the spring, The A gona Exchange is working very smoothly, with the Baileys in charge of Central. Mr, George and his force have been working bard to put the lines in the best possible shape, The Algona exchange,has bad printed in structions for working the phones and an alphabetical list of subscribers, as follows: To call ^Centrar'—Press button at bottom of bell box and at the same time give the crank one or two turns, then take down receiver and- listen.

The Famous Balcony Scene from Romeo and Juliet as a Prelude—Estimates by Leading Dramatic Critics. Miss Jane Coombs will appear in Bleak House and in the balcony scene of Romeo and Juliet at the Call Friday night. She is said to have a tine company for support, and a rare dramatic treat is expected. Here are some of the things said of Miss Coombs by dramatic critics: [From Chicago Times.! For , our opinion of Miss Coombs' Juliet we refer the hundreds who, amid a stillness which the slightest rustle of silk, even, or a- suppressed whisper, would have made manifest by contrast, drank in every silvery note of the balcony scene. Constant Mayer's brush has well put that scene upon canvas, so far as it appealed to the eye.. .Its music to the ear was beyond his high art. [From Oiaciunattl Commercial.] Miss Jane Coombs appeared last night as "Lady Dedlock" and "Hortense" in Charles Dickens' Bleak House, to a large audience and gave as Lady Dedlock one of the most finished, artistic and beautiful performances of female characters that has ever been seen upon our stage. In the impassioned scene in the third act she reached the most intense expression of passionate acting and received an enthusiastic recall after the fourth act when she disclosed her identity to her child; the audience was moved to tears for the repentant mother. Miss Coombs' regal beauty, magnificent voice and exquisite grace/captured every heart in the large audience. As Hortense, the revengful lady's maid, Miss Coombs achieved a success, play' ing it with all the abandon of a French woman, who, when goaded to desperation by Tulkinghorn, deliberately plans and accomplishes his murder, The supporting company was very fine and gave such representations as will not be forgotten. The interest in the piece was sustained to a close; it is surprising that so much of the story could be so well told, [St. JosepU B.eral<},] A rare dramatic feast was spread At Tootle's theatre yesterday, Miss Jane Coombs appeared at the matinee as Juliet in Shakespeare's "Borneo and Juilet," and at night as LaOyDedJock and Hortense fa Dickens' "Bleak 1 House," to a decidedly fashionable house, It can be truthfully said 'that the engagement was a succe^' as two more delighted, audiences have not left Tootle's this season, Miss" Coombs reading of Juliet charmed every ear in the large audience, her pathos touched- all hearts, and at times her passioi fau-ly -electrified the house;' At ! night -it was re" freshing to look upon toe 'audience that witnessed, "Bleak House," Most Of-thpse present 86 some time during their'Jife bad fallen under the ma,gie gpeii of Charles P iokens, had been en» thralled by the WQ«derf»l power of hjs matchless, stories and with a thnlj is- member yet tbe'ojd, fiWW f» <&Jwm« mipery and despauMUW >4ftifep r pages of that , a rejection.

The Baptist Church in Accepting Their Pastor's Resignation, Adopt Resolutions. There was a special meeting of the Baptist Church last Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 11, at which the Rev. A. O. Stevens tendered his resignation. He having accepted the pastorate of the First Baptist church of Rochester r Minnesota, his resignation was without recall and was reluctantly accepted by the church. The following resolutions were unanimously adopted: Resolved, That it is with deep regret that we accept the resignation of our beloved pastor, Rev. A. O. Stevens, and we hereby express our grateful recognition of the devotion and fidelity with which he has served us. We also commend him as an able preacher and an honest and faithful minister of our Lord .Jesus Ghrigtyand', it ^wUr"be«*Ofli!J prayer'that'the"' 'blessing of God"m'ay rest upon him and his labors in his future work. The farewell sermon was preached 1 Sunday morning. The young pastor leaves Algona with the hearty commendation of his church people, and also with the friendship and full confidence of the people of Algona in general. We have very few young men in or out of the ministry, who are so well qualified for their chosen work, or who are able to so fully impress upon others the entire sincerity of their professions. • • ''..'-..,.'• PERSONAL MENTION.
