A number of Masonic friends called on them at ;heir home and presented Mr. Adams with a gold-headed cane, and Mrs. Adams with a gold ring. It was a pleasant occasion. The Reporter says that the past two years' experience in growing shade ;rees in Spencer has fully demonstrated the fact that only the elm and the ash trees are proof against drouth. The elm will do for shade trees and the ash makes a good shade and is also the best ;o raise for timber. John Hanna, who h'as had charge of the Algona co-operative creamery for the past year, has quit work for the company, and it is said he will conduct a creamery near St. Paul.

They left for Ohio Saturday afternoon, and on that even- ug another telegram came announc- ng the Doctor's death. No particu- ars were given. It was not supposed hat Mr. and Mrs. Watson would learn jfthe death of Dr. Powerine until ;heir arrival in Mt. Hope. The Britt Tribune speaks a good vord for our representative. It says: Sam Mayne, of Bancroft, is getting •ather more than his share of praise and encomiums from the Des Moines n-ess this winter. Somehow Sam seems ;o be rather at home down there and is not only making himself heard but goes after the things he wants in the n-oper way to get them. Kossuth did ibout the right thing when they sent Sam to the legislature. J.J. Ryan's frequent visits to Fort Dodge are regarded here with grave suspicion, which little items like this from the Post are calculated to deepen. The Post says: "Mr. Ryan has many good words to say for his home town, and he has great faith in its fut* ure, but he never forgets that Fort Dodge was his first love, and it is hoped by his scores of friends, that h.e will some day claim her as his own again." •Claim her as his own" is just what is anticipated he will do. A letter was received last week by Rev. G. W. Southwell from the M. E. pastor at Platteville, Wisconsin, where Rev, Cordner, the evangelist, is now at work, which said that while Platteville had heretofore been favored by the services of many eminent evangelists, Mr. Cordner had already had greater success than all the others. Two hundred conversions had resulted and greater fruits weie hoped for. Mr. Cordner's meetings in Algona are expected to begin next Monday evening, in the Nicoulin rink. The Emmetsburg Reporter pays a well directed compliment when it says: "Algona is to have a brick and tile factory. As usual the thing bung in the balance until A. A. Call took the matter in hand and then it became a sure thing. Algona is certainly fortunate in having such a citizen as A. A. Call to help build up the town. A few such publtfc spirited men as he can build up * j_---___T_ 11 TJS „,,-. ,.l*» «/%*• /v^f- 4-lia rilki ing the other two men to make their exit. One of the latter went to Sheriff Samson's house and notified him of the situation. Elwell was captured within about an hour of his escape, as he was plodding along the road eastward, and later Delair, who was put the city marshall, was got back and now he is doing time on the streets. Elwell was taken to Independence Monday, Sheriff Samson and Deputy Cosgrove of Wesley making the trip with him. He was confined in the cage Sunday, from which he got out by breaking a chair and using one of the pieces to pry open the door. When he reached the corridor he forced the outer door open without trouble by breaking off the lock. any Wwn." If we do not get the factory it will not be Mr. Call's fault. He is always alive to the interests of his town. The TJ. P. M. is mistaken this week in saying that the official papers were allowed "fancy printing bills" by the board. The bills were just what the JJ, P- M. or any other paper would have made them, because exactly what the law and supreme court decisions say are correct bills. The law makes the price for all work of this kind, and ev- 1 ery printer, official or otherwise, puts that price in his bill. The U. P. M. is also mistaken in the size of the report charged for. It was the longest financial statement the county has ever published, i|nd it has been some time since one of its reports could be put in two columns. PERSONAL MENTION. D. W. Pratt, a Kossuth county young man, is a member of the graduating ilass of the Dental College at Chicago. Grant Beuschoter and daughter Edna are planninsr a trip to California about the first of May. Spencer Reporter: The Misses Madge and Lillian Gilmore came up from Algona, Saturday, to visit their father over Sunday and returned Monday. The motherless girls and the father enjoyed the visit very much. W. W. Wheeler of Des Moines has been attending to business in Algona since Saturday. A letter from Prof. D. E. Johnson, formerly of our Normal, locates him as a teacher in Wood's college, an academic and commercial institution with upwards of 500 pupils at Pottsville, Pennsylvania, in the heart of the anthracite coal region. Miss Maggie Haggard took charge of the school at Hanna, Monday, and Miss Olive Salisbury 'the Herman school. Miss Cornie Inpham has the Rice school this spring. These three Algona young ladies are specially fitted for for good teachers and will make successes of their schools. OLD FEUD WELL ENDED. F. W. Bicknell in Times-Republican: Probably the most notable occurrence of the closing hours of the Twenty- sixth general assembly is the settlement of the Sherman-Brown f ued and the allowance of the claim of ex-Auditor Brown for $4,000 for money spent defending his office when the legislature tried to impeach him. It was passed by the house several days ago - - ' ?hthe by a large majority, large MJ W ***r& w ***vw,|w**wy f .^.ri-j— TJ - -- - --- e»- - • efforts of Representative Temple, ot Clark county. It bad previously been voted on in the senate and defeated by two-thirds, when it needed two-thirds majority to pass, Mr. Temple then went to work in the senate and yestei> day Buren R. Sherman, ex-governor of Iowa, broken in health and fortune, visited the senate chamber. For several days he has been saying kind things about his old enemy and yesterday mutual friends brought them together. They shook hands after a dozen years of deadly enmity and tears were in the eyes of both. Neither is what he was when the war began in the state house ten years ago, but physically and financially time has been kinder to the ex-auditor than to the chief executive who quarreled with him. The senate had been polled and Brown and his friends were absolutely sure of the necessary two-thirds. »o when Senator Byers, of Lucas, brought up the bill he stuck to it and would not down, When all sorts of parliamentary tactics -were Brought to beax- to knock «.! __ V.1I1 ^ __ t- •__ _• ,,j» ,, -.-ttii rr *T»ri/i rtJ"V*-*Ta_ votes for this, and on the vote on the- bill itself it had thirty-five, one more . than ifc needed. The senators who votefl no Avere Bonson, Cheshire, Downey, Hotchkiss, Junkin, Kilburn, Perriu and Ranck. Seven others did not vote- It was a dramatic scene when the foot of the roll call Avas reached and but thirty-three senators had voted for the bill. Then Senator appeared and voted. "aye," followed immediately by Sena-- tor Bell—the long struggle was ended and the Brown claim was allowed. Senators went out and congratulated' Mr. Brown, Avho said to me: "Maybe you think my wife and children Avon't be happy tonight! Yes, I've made up with Sherman. I told him I'd divide my last crumb Avith him, and he said' this should be the last of it." The political significance of. this action is'Con- siderable in Lucas county, and it is a- great relief to Senator Byers to have the question removed from politics there. It has entered into every contest and men there have lined upeverj?, year on one side or the other. HE SHOULD BE NOMINATED;;. Fort Dodge Messenger: In our opinion, every consideration urges the choice of judge Weaver. His career upon the bench in this district suggests his advancement, and the bar of- the district is practically unanimous in itB- testimony to his qualifications. He has the judicial mind required for the bench, and he has large ability. He has no diverting ambitions or tastes. He is abreast of the times, recognizes the spirit of the period, and knows- Avhatreal progress merits from the- courts. As a man and citizen, in every relation of life, Judge Weaver commands admiration. A glimpse of his- character was afforded when as a member of the twenty-first General Assembly he insisted upon being carried on a. cot to the capitol to cast the deciding vote necessary to pass the prohibitory law. The honor of jthe party Avas then pledged to its passage, and whatever men may think of prohibition itself, they respect such fidelity and resolution. We do not urge that Judge Weaver is "entitled" to this nomination, be- • cause the republican party has no debts • to individuals, but there is a feeling that so able a jurist as he should not have the door of advancement forevey closed to him by the campaign of that year. His merits had W9n him deserved- recognition in the nomination by bis- party for the. supreme bench, and t^e- opportunities of that great field had' been honorably and fairly won,- wbw the party itself, under the disfavor of' the electors, was condemnud to defeat' That party defeat cast him down JHSfc as the honestly won prize of his caret?" was within his reach. We who know-' his ability, his character, his desert^,. feel that it is not just to crowd him onfc, of the line of promotion now. His we?its are as great as when the party sev • lected fcim in 1891, and who know hip » believe that the party can do no betier • than to stand steadfastly by its-1^ choice. The party has not taken- up • any new candidate for the supreme f , bench since Judge Weaver was nomjv nated. It has very properly stopd/'Jjy its record and re-elected the judges whose terms expired. But now a •jj.ejif man is to be chosen, and we maintain • that the consistent and best fp j endorse its own action at ^•"»•—«<-« by re-nominating Judge * rySabin, our present s^.,,. of schools, was on tee tid^t with, Judge Weaver.
