BY MILTON StAftR. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: One Year, in Advance $1.50 Six Months 75 Three Months 4° Free silver h»s been brought up anew this year apparently for the reason that the democratic party must have some issue, and the people of the country positively will not have any more to do with free trade. The editor has never listened to orations from a high school graduating class of a better general character and quality than were those of theEtnmets- btirg High School last Wednesday night. The class was one for Prof. Ilinckley to be proud of. Stock should, bo kept off A few days for a new growth ot grass, or rain. * * It may bo possible to kill many with heavy roller?. If worms are traveling from one field to another or in a given direction a. deep furrow with the vertical side out, or a ditch, will stop them, and by boring post- boles every rod in the furrow the worms may be trapped in great numbers nnd buried. COUNTr BRIDGE AND GRADE Matters Take up Most of the Time at the Regular June Meeting of the Board. The Carroll Herald is for Cummins for member of the national committee, Major Conger for presidential elector at large, D. C. Chase for district election, E. P. Chassell for secretary of state, and so on. There are some good men on the Herald's slate. The president's veto of the river and harbor bill was followed quickly by its passage by a more than two-thirds majority in both houses. There is no doubt but that the country at large believes that in this instance the president was right. Speaker Thos. 13. Heed's friends have let it be known that he will not accept the vice presidency. His acceptance of the nomination would have given the republicans an ideal ticket, but of course be is not the only man in the United States capable of filling the place. THE MONEY PLANK. When it comes to its practical treatment, there is very little difference in the republican ranks on the money question. There are very few who would care to see any radical departure in our financial management. The party never was more a unit on any question than in its opposition to the adoption of a 60-cent dollar of redemption, which is the issue that is being raised by the democratic party. Once that question is settled all other financial questions become mere matters of business detail, easy of disposal. The work of the St. Louis convention in the matter of a financial plank will therefore not be difficult. An outspoken declaration will have a salutary effect upon the business of the country, and it will enhance the chances of success. And with success won, its mean ing can be interpreted. It is time for this question of a 50-cent dollar to be settled and got out of the way. If we' must try the experiment it should be tried at once. It was a good thing to try free trade, for having tried it the county knows it does not want any more of it. The trial of free silver would, we think, result similarly in its rejection and in a turn to the solid foundations which have stood the test of the ages. Personal Property Adjustment—Captain Foster Appointed Deputy County Surveyor—Bills Allowed. AUDITOR'S OFFICE, June 1, 1890.— Board met in regular session with the following members present: Chubb, Smith, Barton, Hollenbeck. Minutes of previous meeting read and approved as read. The following committees report: Smith favorable to building a grade between 28, 20 in Eagle township, and is appointed committee to build same. Hollenbeck in favor of building a bridge betweeno24 and 25 in Prairie township, and is appointed a corn- It is announced that Hon. J. II. Punk. Hardin county's representative in the legislature for the past two sessions, will be the orator at Bancroft on the Fourth. His subject will be: "Perils and Safeguards of the Republic." Mr. Funk is a good speaker and Bancroft is fortunate in securing him for the occasion. The republican party leaders are gathering at St. Louis, and getting ready for the presidential convention, which comes next Tuesday. The questions to be settled are just bowMcKin- ley will be nominated, just how it shall be said that the party is for the soundest and solidest money, and who shall be the next vice president. For this position Ex-Go v- 13 ulkeley, of' Connecticut, is being urged among others. He is a business man as well as a statesman. EDITORIAL OPINION. Estherville Republican: Persons who are inclined to talk about Ex-Gov. Boies' popularity in Iowa should remember that Frank D. Jackson beat him for governor by 33,000 majority, and Jackson was by no means a popular candidate. Swea City Herald: Other papers are expressing themselves on the money question and it might not be out of place to state that the Herald is for a gold standard. Those who wish to use silver should pay their subscription before a discriminatiou is made against the white metal. Congressman Perkins of the eleventh district, in his good tempered speech accepting a renomination last week, said about money, which is the great question now: "The platform will also declare for good money. The money we have is good. We all recognize that. But many of us are short. We want more money. And the honest Wivy to get more money is to get it to work in productive industry; get it out of its hiding places and into the employment of labor—get it to work. A dollar to be liSei'ul must have legs. We want dollars with legs. We want both the dollars and the legs to be full sized." The popular feeling against the greedy corporations that fasten themselves upon cities is everywhere the same. It has been having an illustration in Milwaukee, where a street car strike has been carried on so quietly that only the Sunday calm and stillness projected through the week suggested that something was wrong. There has been no violence nor the thought of it. The patrons have simply quit riding, and the cars go through the streets with the new employes in charge almost empty. It will be hard for the Milwaukee people to win any permanent advantage, however. The companies have the tracks and the franchise and vhey offer something that the people of a great city must have. But it seems to us the country is coming to the point where vigorous opposition will be made against the giving to private corporations of the monopoly of transportation and lighting. MA JOE CONGER FOR ELECTOR. Nevada Representative: It is understood upon competent authority, that Hon. E. II. Conger of Des Moiues, will be presented to the next state convention as a candidate for presidential elector-at-large. The proposition is one which, we believe, will command widespread and hearty endorsement. The office of elector is essentially an honorary one, arid tlie nominee for that post particularly for elector-at-large, is expected to take an active and forceful part in the presidential campaign. No republican iu Iowa is better entitled to the honor aud none could be more useful to the party in the canvas than Maj. Conger. His public record and private character command confidence and admiration. As a speaker be is trenchant, candid and convincing, aud his official career has been such as to render bis services at the present time especially desirable. He served in Congress as the colleague and friend of the men who are most conspicuously urged for the presidential nomination. At a time when public and official opinion was less clearly defined upon the financial issue than it is now, his resolution, good nature and genuine influence made him a tower of strength to the cause of honest money and rendered possible all that was good and safe in the Sherman silver act, He voted for the McKinley bill. He upheld the bands of Speaker Reed in the course adopted to make the House of Representatives a business body. As minister to Brazil he closed with that country the first and most important of all the reciprocity agreements. In Avar and peace he has been a representative American and an earnest republican. Of protection, reciprocity, honest money and all that goes to make up republicanism there is no worthier champion. Popular, able, experienced, he is one of Iowa's great men. His voluntary retirement from Congress bas never ceased to be regretted by his district; and his modestly expressed willingness now to return to politics should have a hearty welcome. mittee to build same.

The army worm has appeared in southern and central Iowa and is caus- , ing apprehension even in this portion of the state, its movements being rapid. It was clearing fields and meadows' in the vicinity of Marshalltown Monday. The Iowa Experiment Station has sent out a circular stating that the appearance of tlie worm is early for this latitude. The circular says: Pastures and meadows, especially on low ground, should be examined at once, and if threatened or invaded, active measures applied at once to save the crop. Where the worms are feeding in a pasture or meadow and not moving in any given direction the best way is to spray the grass with a strong solution of Paris green or London purple, one pound of poison to 100 gallons of water, so as to get prompt effect even if grass leaves are injured a little. If worms are moving, spray thoroughly a little in advance of the army. Rev. Southwell and Party Flounder in the Fenton Township Dark Until Taken in. Rev. G. W. Southwell underwent something of the rough experience of the primitive circuit rider while out holding quarterly meetings last week. He held quarterly meeting services for the Burt circuit at the Dehnert school house in Fenton on Friday evening and Saturday evening he attended the meeting of the quarterly conference at the same place, at which ten or a dozen persons were present. The meeting was protracted till a Jate hour in the hope that the rajn, which had fallen all the evening, would cease, but at length as it kept right on it was thought best to try to get home, but the attempt was a failure. The darkness was Egyptian, and one rig went over the end of a bridge, while others got struck on the prairie. With the aid of lanterns all were got to the house next west of the school house, where the ladies were given shelter for the night, the men finding a place on the hay in the barn, where they slept in their wet clothing. Mr. McGuire, tlie young man who is in charge of this circuit, is a preacher of ability and promise. He is a great nephew of Gen. Lew Southwell conducted meetings on Sunday, the forenoon and one the afternoon. Wallace. Rev. two quarterly one at Burt in at Bancroft in Choicest pickles in just the size bottles you want at M. Z.

Clarke, of Cedar Bapids, who succeeded in squeezing $3095 and interest, altogether $3800, from Ellsworth. It is estimated that if everybody iu the county could get paid on that scale for the good they have done, the i esvspapers could put in electric lights, lay all needed sidewalks and start an orphan asylum. One juror declared he wouldn't give Mr. Clarke a cent, but after being out from Wednesday forenoon till 2 o'clock next morning, his resolution gave way and he compromised with the enthusiastic farmer who wanted to make it $7,000. After disposing of this interesting business the jury tried a little case of Dr. Lacy vs. Miller and Robertson, involving $100, found for defendants and were sent home. t Some equity' cases are being heard this week by Judge Quartou, among them being one brought by Mrs. Boals against Jas. II. Nelson on the note which is causing N. J. Skinner trouble. The decision in this case is expected today. Another case involving Skinner's line work is'On for Friday. It is brought by Mrs. Boals against W. B. Carey to recoyev a note and mortgage sold to the latter by Skinner, The papers were held by F. L, Boals, as agent, and Skinner secured them on the plea that the maker wanted to increase his loan, and then sold them outright to Carey. This is said to be astronger case againstSkin- ner than the one on which he was indicted. The operator who figures in these cases arrived here Monday morning in charge of Sheriff Samson. His father, from Manson, came up with him and furnished a $1,000 bond, signed by himself and another Manson man, and Skinner with bis father started back on the 1:13 train, not giving himself time even to call on the REPUBLICAN. His case comes on in October, Smith for petit larceny and Byrnes for vending hard cider were given each thirty Jdays ffiffi 1 ''"-',/:. : --y ; -l:-^ ,---'.'"'-l V- the People at the Center Pleased With the Evangelist, and the Work Goes On Without Opposition. Rev. Cofclner's meetings at Buffalo Center closed Sunday evening. lie goes now to Perry, Iowa, where he will open on Friday night. He had great success at Buffalo Center, The REPUBLICAN is informed that upwards of one hundred converts were Won, including the mayor, one of the physicians, a conductor and numerous solid business men, Mr. Hoflus, formerly of this neighborhood, being one of the number. Thursday afternoon the school and all business places closed up for the meeting. There was a heavy storm at night, and yet the meetings and results were the best of the series. No fight whatever was made on Mr. Cordner by the people of the place. Those who were not in sympathy with the meetings kept quiet, and approval came from unexpected sources. The meetings on many occasions overflowed the limits of the tent. Mr. Cordner expects to hold a tent meeting at Forrest City in August if .lie can secure a man to take his present engagements. The Buffalo Center Tribune, whose editor is a brother of Capt. Foster of this place, said of the meetings in its issue of Friday last: Buffalo Center has never been so stirred on religious matters as during the last few days. The chief topic of conversation on the streets and in the stores is not the price of oats and com, the state of the weather or even the nomination of McKinley, but rather, '•What think you of Christ 1 ?" Evangelist Cordner has a most effective way of presenting stern, practical truths. His confidential talk to men cm Sunday afternoon from a physical, intellectual and moral standpoint, was worth, as many have said, more than five dollars admission. There was no dissent from the truthfulness. That their lives needed mending was evident to every thinking man. This, perhaps more than any other address, led to a movement toward God and righteousness. This is by no means a revival of human excitement accompanied by shouting and gymnastics, touching the nervous and emotional, but is an able and practical appeal to thoughtful men and women. The Christian people have been aroused to a new consecration to their Master, and their united prayers have resulted in a gracious outpouring of the spirit of God. Many say they never before saw the Gospel as they do now. Leading business, and professional men consider this meeting the best thing that eyer cqine to;this ; towri ; and' : are working to save others. Thursday of this week was made a day of fasting and prayer. At nine a. m. six cottage prayer meetings were held. At 10:30 a' large meeting in the tabernacle, also at tbreo and 7:45 p. m., as well as a meeting for converts at 7:15 p. m. The business houses of this place agreed to close, in the afternoon. It is feared that Evangelist Cordner cannot be kept here longer than next Sunday. As an attractive, pointed preacher, Mr. Cordner could hardly be excelled; and at the same time, his Christian, gentlemanly bearing wins the hearts of his hearers. Prof. Burnette, the singer, has won both children and adults and has greatly added to the success of the meetings. He is not only an excellent leader of song, but a consecrated Christian workman. Mr. Cordner has agreed to speak on "Social Amusements" on next Sunday afternoon at three o'clock. Come and hear him. At the close of the meeting Wednesday evening the converts numbered seventy-five.

Z. Grove & Son. , Her Grand Annual Picnic Attended by • Happy Crowds. There was a fair attendance from Algona at the Burt picnic Saturday, and people came from all points of the compass for a day's enjoyment at Elvidge's fine grove on the river.
