v 6Y MILTON STARR. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: One Year, in Advance $1.50 Si* Months 75 Three Months ; 4° James 8. Clarkson is reported to be seriously ill of heart disease at bis home in jSfew York. It is settled that John K. Baldwin, of Council Bluffs, will make the speech nominating Allison. Mr. Baldwin is a forceful speaker. by the friends of the and now the only question is what the gold standard democrats are going to do about it. A split in the party has long been anticipated as the sure result of the Contest over the financial question, and the only doubt was as to which side would be called upon to bolt. Up to this time candidates for the Chicago nomination have not been much discussed, but now that the platform is out of the way there will be a growth of interest in the ticket. Boies is prominent, and Vice President Stephenson is seriously talked of. The woods will be full of candidates, but a western man seems to be desired, and Iowa or Illinois may furnish the candidate. Evangelist Williams is about to begin a series of meetings in Sioux City and the papers are urging the people to build them cyclone caves. The Chicago Times-Herald puts it it well thus. The probability is now that free silver will carry the Chicago convention like a tornado. Like a tornado it will leave in ruins the party represented in the convention. Weeks after everybody lias lost interest in the republican nomination as 'a settled matter, along comes Quay and concedes McKinley's nomination. After all, the Pennsylvanian's means of information are not so limited as may have been suspected. Here are some of the hard questions addressed by Judge French to Horace Boies in the democratic convention: "Is it fidelity to the wage earners to cut their wages in two? Is it fidelity to the people to cut their deposits in the banks in two? Will you vote to protect the masses or mine owners?" Says David B. Hill: "No matter what may be in store for us in the next campaign, come victory or defeat, sunshine or shadow, weal or woe, I will be found working for the democratic platform and candidates." With those words of self-abnegation ringing in his ears, any democrat who would keep David B. out of the presidential nomination must be hard-hearted indeed. The coronation of the czar and czarina at Moscow last week was an event of a lifetime with the llussian people. It cost millions of money which might have been better spent, and it was brought to a close Saturday by a tragedy in which upwards of 2,000 people lost their lives. The czar had spread a feast for 500,000 of his subjects, and the jam of people who wanted food and presents was such as to cause a stampede. Among the dead were many ladies of apparently high rank, attired in silks and bedecked with jewels. But it was a grand sight. The republican Judicial convention for this Fourteenth district has been called for June 30, fit Ernmetsburg, to nominate a candidate for Judge to succeed Judge Thomas. This necessitates the calling of the county convention for an earlier date than had been intended, and County Chairman B. F. Crosehas accordingly named Friday, June 26, as the day. The convention will under the call elect the delegates to the judicial, state and congressional conventions, so that only one other county convention will need to be called this year, that to nominate candidates for county offices. A New York correspondent calls attention to the fact that Mr. Platt has not been in the habit of having the friendship of republican presidents. Hayes and Garfield and Harrison were all arrayed against him. He had asserted himself in the politics of that state without the use of patronage. This shows remarkable strength. We have plenty of instances in which politicians have become powerful through the dispensing of federal patronage but where is there another instance, so conspicuous in which political following, amounting to what his enemies call a dictatorship, has been built up and maintained for twenty years absolutely without the aid of federal pat- ronageV—Des Moines Eegister. If asking questions is in order, how was it with Tweed? The national prohibition convention at Pittsburg last week went back upon free silver and woman suffrage. The party is a one idea party strictly. The decision was not made without a struggle, in which St. John of Kansas, who spoke so eloquently in Algona last fall for free silver, was on the losing side, So the invitation that the prohibition party extends to the citizen of the United States, is an invitation to withdraw from the actual contest that will Y be decided this fall and to participate ••. in a sham battle by voting on a question will not be settled or probably in least affected one way or another by his vote, which will be only a futile and ill-timed expression of a mere sentiment. That kind of voting is not in harmony with our plan of government and is not patriotic. The result of the Kentucky convention in a free silver victory settles it that the democratic national platform of 1896 will have free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to l as its chief plank. This is conceded I j, SKINNER IS IN LIMBO. THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE. Mr. Clarkson having given early notice that he will not be a candidate for re-election as national committeeman, it will devolve upon the Iowa delegates to the St. Louis convention to select a new member. This will be the most important work they will perform. It is desirable that Iowa be represented by some man who will not seek to farm the position for individual glory and advancement. It is not necessary to put forward a man who will conceive it to be his mission to boss the politics of the United States. There will be people enough for that. The committee is always well supplied with plotters and adventurers. What it is believed to need more is safe and patriotic coun- sellors. The REPUBLICAN believes that the delegation would do well to go outside of the close political corporations and name a man like Wm. Larrabee. There is no lowan more competent to serve the party in this field, nor any who would have to a greater degree the confidence of the people. UNJUST TO THE ANARCHIST. The REPUBLICAN does not wish to misrepresent even an anarchist like Altgeld. Last week we mentioned his name in a connection which indicated a belief that he was as reckless in his financial as in his socialistic notions, •whereas the tormer are shown by his manipulation of the Cook county convention to have been quite conservative. There was not a mention of 16 to 1 or any arbitrary ratio between silver and gold in the platform adopted by that convention, while the Iowa platform is 16 to 1 without condition or alternative and wholly regardless of whether it means sixteen years of panic to one of prosperity. As compared with the Iowa democrats, Altgeld is a sane man. REQUEST TO TELL THE TRUTH The 1ST. Y. Sun thinks the time is opportune for the Cleveland administration to tell the truth and let it be known that the proceeds of the bond sales have gone mainly to supply deficient revenue and pay running expenses rather than to protect the gold reserve. It thinks great harm is being done by the false pretences of the administration. In the course of a recent article it says: Isfo people of ordinary education and intelligence can see the payment of a colossal war debt continue uninterruptedly during the thirty years which follow attainment of peace, and then see this process suddenly stopped and the debt begin to grow rapidly again, without inclining to condemn the policy responsible for it. It is no wonder that the democrats, still inflamed against riches and prosperity by the party oratory of 1892, Mr. Cleveland being incomparably the leader of such excitement, should now vow destruction on the money standard which the same leader tells'them has compelled the new bonds. Of course there is great force in this, yet the country does not have to rely on Grover Cleveland for light on the operations of the Wilson-Gorman tariff bill. The voters who will name the next president have known for a long time that most of the money brought in by the bonds has gone for running expenses. They also believe that with the right kind of a tariff, one that will enable the government to pay as it goes, the piling up of the national debt will cease, and its reduction be resumed. They believe that the debt will be wholly obliterated and become a matter only of unpleasant recollection before the people of the United States can be induced to again experiment with a democratic tariff. They believe that the gold reserve will take care of itself for another thirty years under a sound protective tariff policy. They remember that the present admiEiistra- tion got in by false pretences, and they expect that false pretences i-.wjlj be a characteristic of the administration as long as it lasts. Arrested in Galvestofl, and Meld fof Sheriff Samson Me Has Been Indicted 1 The sensation of the week has been the.indictment of N. J. Skinner by the grand jury for cheating by false presences. The officers have been keeping a watch on Skinner for some time, and when he was needed they knew just where he was to be found. When the indictment was returned Saturday night Sheriff Samson sent a telegram to Galveston, Texas, and in a few Hours Skinner was resting behind the oars. Monday morning Mr. Samson left for the Lone Star State. The circumstances of Skinner's offense as alleged are these: Skinner had a note against Jas. H. Nelson for some $430, and Nelson had made payments on it from time to time until only $30 remained unpaid. Then Skinner proposed to close the matter up and take Nelson's note for the balance. When the business was done Skinner was in a great hurry and could not wait to write out the note, so he asked Nelson to sign the blank note, which he did, and at his leisure Skinner filled it out for $600 instead of $30. The original note in the meantime was in the hands of Mrs. Boals as collateral, and none of ;he payments had been indorsed. The $600 note was turned over to Mrs. Boals and when the latter presented her note for payment the truth came to light. There are numerous parties in this neighborhood who are sorry they ever met Skinner, but now they evidence a desire to see him again, and he is likely to have numerous scores to settle under the criminal statutes before he is through with Kossuth county. The whole week in court has been given to the Clarke-Ellsworth case, which went to the jury this morning. Five indictments in all have been reported by the grand jury. The case of Wm. Smith for grand larceny and Ervin for horse stealing were mentioned last week. Byrnes of Wesley was indicted for [seeping a nuisance. His trial is expected to come on this term. Kellar and Baker, of northern Kosuth, were indicted for selling a lot ot corn and hogs which had been levied on by the sheriff. Ekstrom', the Wesley man accused of firing his own building was not it dieted. MCKINLEY'S FIRST VOTE. Sioux City Journal: Ex-Gov. McKinley did well when he cast his first vote. The New York Mail and Express says that it was cast for Abraham Lincoln in 1864. It was cast in Virginia while his regiment was in the field, and the three men who went with the young lieutenant to the ballot box were Philip H. Sheridan, Butherford Hayes and Alfred H. Terry. All four votes were for Lincoln. WAS LAST YEAR'S WORK. Wesley Reporter: Think of it, and just after their big revival too. Algona has some people who rob graveyards of flowers left on the tombs by friends. or Filling Out a tfbte for the Wrong Amounts-Put it $600 Instead of $30. —Other Indictments. HE WAS STERN. Case of a Britt Woman Seeking for More Light. "Josiah," said a leading Britt church woman, removing her wraps, "the preacher this morning was speaking about the people's lack of knowledge about scriptural things. He said: 'Fox- instance, if you were out in company and somebody spoke of Uriah Heep or Sherlock Holmes, you would be ashamed if you had never read or heard about those characters.' And then he asked: ,How many of you know aboutElnath- an?' I could feel myself growing red. I've forgotten all about Elnathan, if I ever knew. Who was he, Josiah?" "H'm!" said the puzzled hubby, cautiously. "Bible character, wasn't he?" "Of course." "Then," he rejoined, with much severity, "you ought to be ashamed to come to me for information about him! Read your bible, woman! Eead your bible." TRAVELING LIBRARY. The New Law Goes Into Effect July 4— Will Give Our Library New Books. The new traveling library law goes into effect on the 4th of July. The Des Moines Capital says regarding its provisions: In a few days there will be issued from the state library a little booklet, or circular as many would perfer to call it, which will explain the traveling library system which the general assembly granted the librarian power to establish. As there is no publication clause, the act having been approved by the governor, will become a law July 4. By it any community may receive books from the state whether the particular district supports a library or not. Organized bodies making application for books may secure them from the state library, on such terms as the trustees elect to put in force, The organized bodies will be composed of not less than twenty-five persons who get together to reap the benefits of the new law. They will obtain the works they wish on proper application to • the library at the state house, and entering $n, agreement fopay.costpf trans* poftatjop, a rule which; the trustees will prpfcaw adopt in view of the small outlay and the value of .every dollar saved which may be expended in furthering the project. In towns where there are already libraries tae rule will provide only for the proper care and the return of the books loaned. The persons or associations receiving them may keep them in charge for from three to six months, and in exceptional cases a year. The object of the system is not so much to circulate the books as to eventually interest the communities it active library work, for soon Iowa will rank first in the efficiency and value of her library interests- Six or eight states have adopted the same relative system, but none have adopted so liberal provisions as those made for Iowa. Four thousand dollars has been appropriated for the purchase of books the first year. It is understood the trustees w probably permit the organization to list; oi ifteitef'ftllefti, of Will bf made la the llbfarl at the statefiouse and the associations tfiveh the privilege of,, choice. It the latter method Is approved the lists will be made up with reference to special subjects which may be wanted for consideration by applicants.

HUTCHISON, . City Clerk JOHN ADAMS MARRIED. Meets His Fate in a Lincoln, Nebraska Girl, Miss Cordie Abbott. The Genoa local paper writes up as follows the marriage of a young man in whom our readers, particularly these in Algona, are much interested: We promised that when John Adams got married we would give him a whole column write up, but we are not going to do it just because Dick McMillan, Ernest Eogers and Walt Pritchett, who are consumed with envy, are so extremely anxious for us to do it. There is no reason for their jealously, if they will brace up they might get married also. 'As far as the Leader is concerned we congratulate him and have only one fault to find and that is that he had no right to go off to Lincoln for a wife when there are so many pretty girls in Genoa 1 , all anxious to get married—all girls are. Well, John is married, and the ceremony took place at the residence of the bride's mother at Lincoln on last Tuesday. The groom you all know, and bride is also known to many of ourpeo- ple, she being the beautiful and accomplished Miss Cordie Abbott, formerly of St. Edward. The bridal party are expected home the last of this week. . Are you made miserable by Indigestion, Constipation, Dizziness, Loss of Appetite, Yellow Skin?

HUNTER GAINS NOTORIETY. Whittemore Paper Gets the Alleged Marshal Before the Public View. Conflict of Testimony Regarding the Little Brown Jug, But No Difference of Opinion About the Overdone Jag. Geo. W. Hunter was out at Whittemore one day last week, and this is the way he gets his name in the Champion: Hunter of Algona discovered a man sitting by the road near Henry Meyer's place with a jug of whisky by his side. Hunter forthwith took the jug and poured a portion down his neck and then put it in his buggy, driving home with it regardless of Mr. Meyer who told him to leave it alone as the man was doing no harm and he would take care of him. It is just as wrong to steal whiskey as anything else and the Champion thinks Mr. Hunter stepped wide of his jurisdiction in this case. Mr. Hunter called on the BEPUBLI- CAN yesterday and told a little different story. He stated that on his return from Whittemore with Geo. DeLair, a horse driven by a lady became frightened at some object and ran, and came near upsetting on the high grade. When he came to the point his own horse shied, and then he saw a man lying on his back close to the road, dead drunk.. He stepped down and seeing a little jug threw it into his buggy and then began loading the man in, when Meyer came along and said he would take care of him, so he left him to do it. Hunter says he threw the jug out in the grass. He says he did not know what was in the jug, and it seems he had no curiosity to know. In regard to the marshal's star, Hunter wears one all the time. Many citizens of this place would like to know on what authority he does so. If we have two marshals it would be interesting to have somebody explain how we came so. The REPUBLICAN does not believe that the city government can afford to take any responsibility whatever for Hunter. CITY SCHOOL NOTES, School closes June 12.
