BY MILTON STARR. SUBSCRIPTION One Year, in Advance $1.50 Six Months 75 Three Months •• -4° It lias been decided by the committee that the Tenth district committee i'or the nomination of Mr. Dolliver shall be held at Jefferson, Green county, July 20. The deadly tornado is abroad again this spring. Sherman, Texas, had about 150 people killed last Friday, and of course the list of maimed is in proportion. Kansas and Nebraska have been visited with destructive storm within the past few days. The REPUBLICAN says that it uevei supported the third party ticket in Iowa. It is a matter of ancient history but what ticket did Col. Jessuprunon? What's to hinder the U. D. M's. telling the truth about this matter? II never did it yet, but we believe that with the disposition it could do it, The democrats and populists in the senate last Friday rejected the claims of Dupont, of Delaware, to a seat in that body. The vote was on strict party lines and indicated a democrat ic-populist preponderance of one vote No", the republicans can't be held re sponsible for the senate. The national A. P. A. organizatioi has been in session the past week, anc the great question up all the while ha been what to do about McKinley When the ban of this order was pro nounced against' McKinley a rnontl ago nobody cared, and nobody wil care what it says now. This order o misguided men is the fly on the wheel The Iowa democrats are having free silver jubilee at Dubuque to day. Boies will be a great man then for a little while. Chairman Harrity of the democratic national committee says the gold standard men will hav complete control of the national con vention, however. The Iowa derno crats will have to take the gold cure elphirt Press gives him 631, with 98 lelegates in the doubtful column. The hicago Times Herald gives the follow- ng figures: McKinley 681, Reed 103, 60. Morton 58, Allison 35, Brad' ey 16, unpledged 67, McKinley's majority 119. The lowest of these estimates gives McKinley 69 majority and the highest) 130. The N. Y. Herald, an .infriendly paper, gave an estimate of 546 McKinley votes. On the other hand James S. Clarkson gives him only 384 votes and declares that he cannot be nominated. There is apparently no reason to doubt that McKinley will be nominated on the first ballot and that his majority, if he is not nominated by acclamation, will be large. government itself, that is lhe~chaf' acter of the Money which we have today. That is the kind of motiey which it is the paramount interest of every citizen of this country, no matter to what political party he may belong, to want to maintain and continue." Warner Miller, one of New York delegates at large, made a statemeu last Friday that McKinley was bis second choice and that his correspondence with other delegates leads him to believe that a vast majority of the New York delegation feel the same way. The same general situation exists all over the country, with the delegates who for first choice are classed for other candidntes. The slate prohibition convention at Des Moines lust week declared in its platform for woman suffrage, a tariff for revenue with an income tax, free silver coinage at the ratio of 16 to 1. proportional representation and the initiative and referendum. There were 237 delegates reported present. The prohibition party has recognized the necessity for the adoption of a platform covering national (inancal and economic questions, and in defining its principles it has taken the wrong side in nearly every instance. The Olympic games have been revived at Athens, and the American competitors for prizes have won greater honors than the representatives of any other nation. The Olympic games were first held in the year 776 B. C. They were celebrated once in four years, and so important were they that the period intervening was called an olympiad in the reckoning of time. The games were abolished by imperial decree in 394 A. D. The arena as now restored is the greatest in the world and has seatintr capacity of about 48,000. Bro. Funk says now that his vote which has been so much talked of was "against his own judgment as to party expediency" and, we are pleased to note, against his own "temperance instincts." His great reason for voting against his party interests and against his better "instincts" seems to have been the conviction that such vote would be "consistent with the liquor situation in Iowa." We are sorry, for if that is the important thing Bro. Funk will have to support the democratic party this fall because it is con- consistent with the present business an.d financial situation. But wexlo not believe that Bro. Funk means what he says, especially when he intimates that we would concede his infallibility but for a "personal grudge." We dislike too public protestions, but if Bro. Funk will come down to the editorial convention he will find us ready to be forgive n. VAEIO US ES TIM A TES. The last of the delegates to the national convention at St. Louis were elected last Saturday, and the closing es. timates of the strength of candidates were given out. Gen. Grosvener's estimate gives McKinley 592 votes on the first ballot, or 130 majority. The New York Tribune gives him 557 delegates, IS FOE GOOD MONEY. The anti-McKinley and anti-protection press of the east has been making a demand of McKinley to be informed what are his financial views. The object seems to have been to bring him tinder suspicion as an unsafe man, and so to influence the conservative business interests of the county against him. Extracts from McKiuley's speeches, published by a Canton paper dispose of this objection and show that the champion of protection has never dodged the financial question. In 1891 he was the republican candidate for governor of Ohio against Campbell and one of the issues was that of silver. He said in bis opening speech: "The nations which are on a silver basis alone are the poorest nations of the world, and are in constant financial disturbance and monetary disorder. Governor Campbell declared that while he had doubts about it, he was willing 'to chance free and unlimited coinage of silver.' I am not willing to 'chance' it. Now, the people know that if we had two yard-sticks, one 3 feet in length and the other 2* feet in length, the buyer would always have his goods measured to him by the shorter stick, and that the longer stick would go into permanent disuse. It is exactly so with money. I am not in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver in the United States until the nations of the world shall join us in guaranteeing to silver a status which their laws now accord to gold." In the same campaign he said: "You cannot have prosperity under protection unless you have good money, and you cannot have prosperity with good money unless you have also that fiscal ystem which will protect' our own against the productions of the outside world. The democratic platform de- clars in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of the silver dollar to be coined just as freely as gold is coined. From all sides comes 'no' to this declaration. Even from the democrats comes the word 'no,' for they equally with i republicans, want good money. I would rather that the flag I have the honor of carrying this year temporarily go down than of capitulate with dishonesty or to surrender with demagogy. General Campbell says he is willing to 'chance' free silver. I am not willing to 'chance' it." In a joint debate with Gov. Campbell he said: "The republican position is that if there is to be any profit in this matter of money-making that profit should go to the government of the United States, and not to any class of citizens or any of our silver producers anywhere in the world. I am opposed to free and unlimited coinage because it means that we will be put upon a free silver basis and do business with silver alone, instead of with gold, silver and paper money, with which we do the business of this country today, everyone of them as good as gold." "The republican party stands opposed to free and unlimited coinage of silver under existing conditions, and insists that that cannot safely be done until ;ho great commercial nations of the world shall have by concurrent action, ixed the ratio between gold and silver. The republican party stands, therefore, for a dollar worth 100 cents, whether it shall be gold or silver or paper money." "Free and unlimited coinage of silver would give the profits to the silver producers of the world, instead of to the EDITORIAL COMMENT. Times-Republican: Score another for Dolliver. The filled cheese bill has been favorably reported by the senate finance committee, although by a bare majority. And Dolliver's efforts were no doubt largely instrumental in securing that. There's nothing the matter with the Iowa delegation. Boston Traveler: Clarkson the Claimer is at it again, raking up Buckram Bill Allison men; be cackles and crows like a used-up old heir, McKinley's his nightmare, he'd even take Ben; but Ben is to fly for this Iowa boss, and he winks his left eye and says: "Nixey, old boss." My hat may be covered with grandfather's moss, but you can't use your uncle to pitch and "to toss. Now, Jimmy the Claimer will let out a squeal, and he'll twist and he'll squirm like a slippery eel, but Mark Hanna will get him right under his heel, and ask him quite blandly: "Jim, how do you feel?" Clay County News: Heretofore it has not been uncommon on Decoration day to have base ball and si.rniliar sports. Decoration day with the masses has grown to be one of the most sacred days of the year, and the amusements referred to are not looked upon with favo.v on such occasions. We have heard numerous expressions from both old soldiers and others to the effect that hereafter they hope all such amusements will be dispensed with on memorial occasions. The request is a reasonable one and when popular feeling in the matter is understood, we think there is no doubt about it, being regarded. Pocahontas Record: The Record editor desires to suggest to those of our neighbors who have been burying dead pigs that it would be an accommodation to us if they will dig a little deeper hole and anchor them with a bouldei weighing fourteen tons. We have a clog that imagines that we are fond of meat of this character and it is not an unusual thing to find a heliotrope-scented pig reposing serenely on our front'step The clog will not eat the meat of this character and why he insists on going to the trouble ot digging up and bringing it home is a mystery that will have to go unsolved. NEW YORK AND IOWA TIONS. DELEGA- FIELD Di! Annual United men's Field Day Cofnes About the Middle of June, Prepatations are Making tot & Day of Rare Enjoyment—Picnic, Oratory, Games and Music. AYLOR'S There was a large meeting of United Workmen in their hall last night, and the main business was the discussion of plans for the coining annual field day. The date for this event has not yet been definitely settled upon, but it will probably come on or near June 17, The Burt and Algona lodges join in the preparations, and each lodge has appropriated a sum of money to make the occasion what it should be. Efforts are now making to secure as orator of the day an eminent light of the order. It is hoped that Supreme Foreman Tate, of Nebraska, can be induced to come. There will be fine band music, and an elaborate program of athletics has been arranged. This will include the running high jump, the standing high jump, running long jump, standing long jump, putting shot, throwing hammer, hop, step and jump, 100 yard foot race, bicycle race, ball games and a nail driving contest for the ladies, and the tug of war. The Algona fraternity are now engaged in hunting for a woman who can beat the Burt lady in throwing ball, and it will be a bitter disappointment if the right woman is not found. There is to be a base ball game for ladies,and nothing is going to be omitted that will tend to make the day the happiest of the year. With the families of the brethren and their friends thero ought to'be an attendance of 1,000 if the day is fine. The best line of in the City. Largest stock and the lowest in price. . Children's Oxfords a Specialty, JAS. TAYLOR. Here Comes m Walter Wellman in Chicago TimesHerald: The matter with Mr. Platt is tbat he feels hisfeoton slippery ground. The clays of this odious boss are now numbered. More than half of the republicans of :s T e\v York State are impatiently awaiting the day when the yoke of Mr. Platt can be thrown off. He has ruled the republican party of the greatest state of the union long enough. Plattism has stilled progress in the party. It has kept ambitious and promising young men out of politics. It has kept New York's republican leadership down to the level of. mediocrity. There is not now in congress from the great state of New York a single republican of national prominence. The little delegation from Iowa where individual merit has every chance to make of itself all it can, is infinitely the superior of the great delegation from the empire state in ability and influence. Mr. Platt does not like to build up strong men. He fears rivalry. He wants nothing but mediocrity and subserviency. If a man will not bow the knee to Mr. Platt he cannot rise in the republican politics of New York. I have heard many men in that state complain there was no opportunity in politics there, nothing worth struggling for, nothing to call out the best there is iu a man. A young man is looking for a career. He is tempted to try politics. lie has talents and popularity and perhaps money. But the first thing he must do, if he is to do anything, is to make his peace with Mr. Platt. He must put on the yoke. He must make up his mind that he shall not dare to rise above the common level, for if he does Mr. Platt's knife will be at his throat. The natural result is that the best and -brightest yonng men of the republican party of New York keep out of politics. It is no thoroughfare for an ambition accompanied by a self-respecting spirit. The effect of such bossism as that ot Mr. Platt is mediocrity in Albany, mediocrity at Washington, tools and servants and not statesmen. It will be a happy day for the republicans of New York, and especially for the young men of the party, when Mr. Platt bites the dust. government of the United States. Free and unlimited coinage of silver invites the silver producers of the world to bring their 76 cents' worth of silver to the mints of the United States, the government agreeing to coin that silver into a silver dollar and by its flat compel people to take it for 100 cents; and the difference between 76 cents, which is the price of silver to-day, and 100 cents, which is the face value of the silver dollar, goes into the pockets of the silver kings of this country and of the silver kings of the world." In a speech in Philadelphia in 1892 he said: "My fellow citizens, there is one thing this country cannot afford to trifle with, and that is its currency, its measure of value, the money which passes among the people in exchange for their labor and the products of their toil or of their land. There is no contrivance so successful in cheating labor and the poor people of the country as unstable, worthless and easily counterfeited money. The money of this country should be as national as its flag, as sacred as the REVIVAL ECHOES. Emmetsburg Reporter: Evangelis Cordner is talking very plainly to the Algona people, but fortunately the newspapers pf the town are endowed with good common sense and are no ranting or tearing out their hair be cause of it.

REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS Robert Moresby Walker, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter J. Walker, of Lotts Creek township, died at the home of his parents Friday morning, May 15, at 5 o'clock, of Bright's disease of the kidneys. The young man was robust and healthy from childhood up to about a year ago, when he was attacked with the grip and later with the. mumps. Since that time his health had been failing, though he said nothing, it being his characteristic from childhood up to keep his troubles to himself. About six weeks ago, without the knowledge of his parents, he consulted a physician and began taking rnerrvine, but ouly to grow worse. When iSsMiather learned .the situation he consulted Drs. Kenefick and Stull and then for the first time became aware that his son was in the last stages of Bright's disease. His sufferings during the last two weeks were intense. Much of the time he was delirious. At the last moments he was conscious and express his desire to go. He said, "I am going home, where sin and sorrow are no more." From childhood he was- of a kind arid generous nature. His parents, brothers and sisters were greatly attached to him and their sorrow is beyond the power of words to express.
