H ' • - f SUBSCRIPTION One Year, in Advance $J-5° Six Months 75 Three Months..: -4° A Prairieburg, Iowa, saloonkeeper, was placed on trial, Monday, for murder. It is charged against the man that he ended a dispute with a customer by crushing his skull with a club. This is a favorite saloon method o£ appealing to the intellect. The condition exacted by the Orleans hotel men from Spirit Lake is that they shall be permitted to do an unlimited and unrestrained saloon business in connection. There is a very determined protest against giving the Abells the privilege. The people of that high latitude do tiot seem to take kindly the mulct. to Mr. Berryhill, the DesMoines republican anti-llegister leader, has been announced as a candidate for Congress, and the Register and Capital complain that he slighted the old time republican papers and had his ambition heralded by the News. Mr. Berryhill is a shrewd enough man to know that, he will get all the announcing he wants from the llegister anyway. public good* why may they not be publicly discussed? Why should they require the secrecy and darkness inAvhich the conspirator hides his pin-poses. So far as the publicly announced principles of the A. T. A. are concerned, some of them we think are sound, but so far as they aim at, a religions boycott they are contrary to the spirit of the age, and endanger that freedom of conscience which Americans value e"en above their political rights. The fight of the A. P. A. on McKinley is senseless and is more likely to help than to hurt him. McKinley has been a member of the Methodist church all his life. He is not the subject of any foreign hierarchy. His chief sin seems to have been in his not having made proper obeisance to the A. P. A. walking delegate. McKinley is too good uu American to have any use for dark lantern politics and, the people like him all the better for that. Senator A, 11. Funk was among the supporters of the bill. Of course Mr. Funk had the right to Vote as he pleased on the bill, but we believe that the greater part o,f the voters who. made it possible for Funk to sit in the senate are adverse to any such legislation as the bill proposed. The senator ttodotlbb reflects the sentiment of the democracy of his district, but the democracy did not put him 'where he is nor are they liable to aid him in keeping there. DEATH CALLS IN-THE NIGHT, What a first class battle ship is may be inferred from a few facts given out in regard to the equipment of the Iowa. The guns which will be placed on the Iowa are at the Washington navy yard. Two of them are 30 feet long and are calculated to throw 850 pound balls twelve miles, and with such accuracy as to shatter a cracker barrel at that distance. Every shot costs $900. One of the encouraging signs of the solidification of all elements of the republican party for sound money is the declaration of the North Dakota republicans for that principle in their platform last week. Coupled with their rejection of the leadership of Senator Hansbirough, it was significant of a very well settled determina- tioi to have no more flat money foolishness in theirs. Hansborough had to follow Pettigrew. Under any ordinary circumstances the candidacy of Ex-Gov. Boies for the democratic' presidential nomination would awaken great interest, in fact great enthusiasm in this state. The reason why no attention is being paid to the Boies buorn is that in the popular idea this is not a democratic year and it makes no particular difference ; what name heads the democratic ticket and gets a few complimentury votes from the southern states. The people may be very badly deceived, but thatis without doubt the way they look at the situation. The Estherville Republican credits this paper with an editorial paragraph which, we believe, appeared in the Em- metsbur;? Reporter. In thafc paragraph the opinion is expressed that the greater number of those who voted for Funk for Senator last fall were misrepresented by his vote for the manufacture bill. Xow that our Estherville contemporary brings the question up, we may say we have been inclined to that opinion, and the utterances of the press of this senatorial district have strengthened us in it. The Spencer Reporter, the Esther- vine Vindicator, the Emmetsburg Reporter and the republican papers in Algona, represent to some extent republican sentiment in four of the five counties of the district, and the sentiment so expressed is adverse. The Estherville Republican indorses the vote, and of course the Beacon does so, and the democratic papers of the district are unanimous in approval, as it was a democratic measure. It is useless to argue a question like this, of course. Let everybody draw his own conclusion and be happy. UJEMOCEATS TO THE RESCUE. From the Spencer Reporter: The Algona REPUBLICAN and the Spencer Reporter have only words of censure for Senator Funk. The former takes exception to his action in voting in favor of a bill providing for the manufacture of liquor in Iowa, and the latter says he is not sincere in his avowed hostility to the encroachments of the express companies. Until stronger arguments than these are brought out against him. his constituents will not feel otherwise than favorably of Ins record during the legislative session just closed. The earnings of express companies should be taxed and the companies should be placed understate control. Only those who favor and defend the interests of gre».dy and oppressive corporations e;>.n argue to the contrary. Senator Funk was the author of the bill providing this, and he is to be congratulated upon the success of his undertaking.—Emmetsburg Democrat. The Democrat evidently did not read the Reporter article very closely. Referring to an item in an exchange upon this question, we said: "The above contains a lot of buncombe. That one per cent, tax and more will be added to the bills of their customers, and no one will be the gainer aside from the express companies. The house bill will be of some practical use and benefit if properly applied." And still the Democrat goes right along and lauds the senator by saying "Senator Funk 1 was the author of the bill providing for this," when in fact the bill putting the express companies under the supervision of the State Railway commissioners, originated in the house, and Senator Funk had nothing to do with its origination. Brother Brauagan is too intelligent to think or believe for a moment that any tax levied upon express companies, would not be immediately relevied upon their patrons in the form of higher rates. The blunder of Senator Funk was remedied by the house measure putting the companies under state control, iii regard to rates, etc. The manufacturers bill, being a democratic measure, the Democrat is just- itiable in defending Mr. Funk's vote upon it, and all democrats will probably be advocating his cause should he ever aspire to higher honors. The Re- MR. MAYNE'S RECEPTION. Spirit Lake Beacon: As an evidence that republics are not always ungrateful, we point with pride to the grand reception given Representative Mayne on his return to Kossuth county. Mr. Mayne made a most excellent record at Des Moines. The best elements of si legislative equipment are industry, conscience and common sense, and the gentleraent from Kossuth is not lacking in any of these essentials. DOLLIVER AGAIN. Webster City Freeman: Hon. J. P. Dolliver, who is now serving his fourth continuous term as congressman from the Tentli district, will undoubtedly be re-elected again this fall. There will be no opposition to his renpmination in the republican convention, and it goes without saying that he will be reelected by at least as large a majority as he ever before received. Mr. Dolliver has met the expectations of his most enthusiastic supporters since his first election to the bouse, and already occupies a conspicuous place among the leading statesmen of the country. Not only is he an orator of national reputation and distinction, but is readily given position and standing among the foremost public men of the present time. He has continued to grow and develop from the day lie entered the American congress, and w< may noil believe that he has not yet r u-hed ;,,ic zenith of his power and useuuiiess as a public man. His career thus far has been most honorable to himself and highly creditable to his district and state, and even now no man in all the great west gives greater promise for the future than Mr. Dolliver, and it is eminently proper that he should be returned to congress by a unanimity and enthusiasm that will show a due appreciation of the man and his services to his party and constittiency. porter will speak of this measure here- PERSONAL MENTION. The new Northwestern train service is bound to encourage frequent visits to the Hub from our north and south town friends. The people of Burtij Bancroft and Ledyard have a number one chance to get to Algona and then to get home almost any hour that suits them. If they want to do business here they can come down at 8:04 a. m.^ and return at 2:49 p. in., or if it is sonae operatic event or meet or social gathering that attracts them, they can come down at S p. in. and return at 10:49. The thing could not well be arranged better with a view to a growing sociability between Algona and her northern neighbors. Hon. W. W. Cornwall, of Spencer, was a visitor in Algona Saturday last. Mr. Cornwall has served two terms in the legislature from the Clay-Palo Alto district, and his legislative career has been watched witli interest by his Kossuth county friends. Mr. Cornwall had the misfortune to be visited by a serious illness just as the last session began to be interesting, but dispite the loss of five weeks when he was confined to a sick bed he made a record of efficient service for his district and state. He is counted one of the rising men of this section. E. W. Goodner was due to reach Algona Saturday night, but being delayed he was obliged to spend Sunday in*Omaha and arrived home Monday The Venerable Mrs. Mary A, Sarchett Passes Away Wednesday Night.—Her Family Find Her Dead in Bed. after. A. P. A. IN POLITICS. A month or so ago the Courier said that the A, P. A. was supporting Mc- Kiuley for president. It now unmistakably appears that this organization is opposing him with great vigor and determination. Should McKinley be the republican nominee and the A. P. A. be satisfied with Boies or some other good democrat, we shall see the Courier working with the A. P. A. and possibly its editors initiated into the order. The A. P. A. has seemed to many to be a myth, or at the most not a force of. sufficient importance to have to be reckoned with. It is making considerable noise at present, but it has not the elements of permanent influence. No secret political organization has any right to exist in this country. In a country where free speech and a free press are not allowed, the only avenue of political agitation is through secret societies. Where other means are allowed there is no good reason for the existence of such socities for political purposes and the only question is whether they should even be permitted. If the principles advocated by this secret political organization are for the From the Estherville Vindicator: The Vindicator folks commend the action of the state senate in defeating the manufacturing bill and thereby condemn the action of Senator lunk, who voted for the law, and Represent- tive Whelan who would have voted for it if it had come up in the house. But the Vindicator is a slow going old craft that is out-of-date and unable to keep up with the procession.—Estherville Democrat. To presume that to "keep up with the procession," the Democrat would have us change our opinion with every little breeze of popular caprice and soft- soap every man in high places for every ordinary business act performed in an ordinary way. As to Senator Funk andRepresentative Whelan, we have not and do not condemn their action, neither do we question their motives in the least. Their positions on this question were well known before they were elected. However, under present conditions, there are two reasons why one would naturally expect both gentlemen to have voted against the bill: 1st.—The republican party cacitly agreed in its state platform to let liquor legislation rest where it now is. Re-submission, promised by the last previous legislature, was defeated and, for that reason, all legislation tending toward the interests of the liquor elements should have been defeated, 2nd.—Other business questions, and not that of temperance, were at issue in the election in these districts. In our representative district comprising three counties, but one has voted mulct saloons; in the senatorial district comprising five counties, but two have saloons. It is fair to assume that those who oppose the saloon would also oppose the manufacture of liquor. Under such circumstances it would seem that neither gentleman represented the wishes of his constituents when lie voted for manufacture. REPRESENTS THE DEMOCRATS. Emmetsburg Reporter: The liquor manufacturing bill was defeated m the senate by u vote of 22 tor to 27 against.

His visit was to his father's home in southwestern Kansas, where he says the crop conditions are at present very fine. The winter wheat, of which there is an increased acreage, is looking unusually well, and the Kaffir or rice corn is up and promises a good crop. There is plenty of rain out there this spring. The Fort Dodge Messenger says that Misses Minnie Kirkup and Florence Young will sail from New York on April 27 for a year of art study in Europe. The summer will be spent in Holland and the winter in Paris, under the in- structrions of Wilbur Reaser. John Chapin writes to us that hereafter he wishes to receive his REPUBLICAN at Burt.

Bumgardner and Mrs. Kate McStay, of Waterloo, were hereto attend the funeral of their mother, Mrs. Mary A. Sarchett, last Friday. Their aged father returned home with them. Emmetsburg Reporter: T.

Death of Horace Wheeler, a Union Township Farmer—He Was a Union Veteran and a Stage Driver of the Early Days. The death of Mrs. Mary A. Sarchett^ mother of T. W. and C. \V. Sarchett, took place at the home of the latter, near the Milwaukee depot, during last Wednesday night. She was in her usual health when the family retired at night, but was found dead in the morniug. Her husband, with whom she slept, was awakened during the night by a request from her for another blanket, the night having been warm and the blanket being thrown back. This was the last that was heard from her. The discovery which the morning brought was a shock to the family, but was no great surprise. Mrs. Sarchett was 81 years old, and had been confined to her, bed for several months. She with her husband had spent the previous eleven months with her sou, T. AV. Sarchett, and had been brought to C. W.'s only the day prior to her death. She was very much emaciated, and weighed only about fifty pounds. She had no well defined disease, but succumbed to the weakness and infirmity of age, passing from this life to the life immortal without sign or struggle. The funeral was attended on Friday, Rev. G. W. Southwell preaching the sermon from a text which the sainted mother had herself chosen for the occasion. There were present besides the friends and relatives in Kossuth county, her two daughters. Mrs. W. L. Bumgardner and Mrs. Katie McStay, and Mr. Bumgardner, of Waterloo. Mrs. Sarchett was born in Emmetsburg, Maryland, in 1815. She went with her parents to Ohio in 1822. and was married there in 1832 to d. M. Sarchett. She and her husband came to Iowa in 1857. She was a member of the M. E. church for upwards of 65 years. Her husband is 85 years old. Of late years the old couple had lived with their children. They were for some years in the home of R. A. Sarchett, of Linn county, but on his departure for Missouri eleven months ago, they came to this county and made their home with T. W. Sarchett, of Union township. Besides her aged husband Mrs. Sarchett leaves eight children. DEATH OF HORACE WHEELER. Horace Wheeler, of Union township, died at his home early Wednesday morning, of consumption, after an illness of several months. He was a man of high standing in the community and was universally respected. Mr. Wheeler was born in Champlain, Canada, in 1840. He came to Fayette county, Iowa, and enlisted in the 12th Iowa regiment for the war and served three years. Soon after his discharge he came to this section of the state and drove the Ft. Dodge and Algona stage. He was married in I860 to Miss Fannie Kinney. of Humboldt, who survives him. He had two children, Grace and Charley, the former being the wife of E. A. Patterson. The funeral was held on Thursday afternoon. It was from the residence and was under the control of his comrades of the Grand Army post of Algona. Rev. McGuire was present and participated in the services. The burial was in the Algona cemetery. Take the best pill.
