Everything in footwear will be found at the CASH SHOE STORE OF Brownell & Allred, BOSTON BLOCK, ALGONA, IOWA, "he Governor Will Suspend Sentence and Give Convicts a Chance to Become Good Citizens. Thu Chicago Times-Herald's Des loines correspondent tells thus of governor Drake's pinna with regard to he treatment of penitentiary convicts: Governor Drake is changing the state enitentiaries into reformatories, in he modern meaning of t'.iat word, to lie fullest extent that the luw \yill permit. lie lias not said anything bout it in public yet, preferring to, vait till he had the system fairly inaugurated. Speaking to The Times-IIer- ild correspondent, the governor said ,hat he was a believer in the merit system in dealing with criminals. "Where : find a man has served about half of lis sentence, has been a good citizen Before he was convicted, and this is his first offense, there are conditions under which I will suspend his sentence and give him another chance. No convict nas been pardoned since I have been governor of Iowa. I want to have a string on the men I turn out of the penitentiary. CONDITIONS OF CLEMENCY. "Where the man's family is in want and the neighbors unite in saying that the family would be better off witii the man at home and that he always took good care of them; and they will vouch for bis good behavior and report to me promptly if he violates the conditions of his release; then if the judge who sentenced and the prosecuting attorney who prosecuted him unite in sayinj that he has been punished enough, and the warden of the penitentiary where he has been coutined says .that,the applicant has been thoroughly "bbedieut and conducted himself in every way as he should, I will suspend his sentence on condition that he shall abstain from the use of intoxicating liquors and from frequenting places where they are sold and shall otherwise demean himself as a good citizen. That gives the man i chance and puts him to the test. have a string on him, and at any tim that he goes back to wrongdoing I can send him back to the penitentiary in stantly. The people who ask for the pardon are required to promise to watch the liberated man and let me know a once if he is not keeping bis agreerhen to behave himself. Only a few weeks ago tlie strongest kind of a petition' for a pardon came up from Lucas county, and a sentence was suspended. The man had not been out of prison long before he got durnk and threatened all sorts of revenge against the people who had got him into the penitentiary. The people notified me of this, as they had promised, and I told the sheriff to take the man back to the penitentiary. Now 'he will stay there." OTHER ATTEMPTS AT IlISVOKM. This policy of the governor will make him a great deal.of work, for as soon s it is known there will be scores of pplicatious for suspensions. It goes much farther and is more systematic han any previous governor has done, governor Gear began it on a limited cale, and Governor Sherman carried it i little farther. Then Larrabee and 3oies had no particular system, nor did governor Jackson. The-latter regard- d the pardon business as the curse of he office. Governor Larrabee did not Believe in pardoning and Governor Joies suspended the sentences of so many men convicted of violations of he 1'iquor laws, which he was opposed o, that he did not give much attention o other criminals. The trial which overnor Drake proposes to give the new theory in dealing with criminals vill be watched with keen interest, )0th in and out of the state. engaged in rallying the Hying troops.

This, in spite of je united inlinence of the press and he most influential politicians. In this Tenth congressional district it is imtiKing how the fever is developing. Crawford county is solid for silver and !t is reliably stated that Carroll, Eoone iml Oalhoun are showing strong syui- totus along the same line. Your correspondent has information that is be- .ieved to be reliable that there is a scheme on i'oot to call a mass convention, non-partisan, i'or the purpose of placing in nomination a candidate for congress who is in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of the white metal. If this should be done and a strong, popular man nominated it would in all probability mean that the democrats would make no nomination at all, simply endorsing the work of the mass convention. It is altogether likely that the republican convention, which meets in this city on the 29th of July, will renominate Mr. JDolliver. His views on the question of finance are so well known that democrats assert that he would lose enough silver votes in the republican ranks to defeat him, although he was elected two years ago by si majority close to 5,000. When asked if Mr. Dolliver would not receive the support of sound money democrats, leading members of that party reply that with the possibility of electing a democrat in sight that party lines would be drawn sufficiently tight to keep them in line. With these facts in mind, whether free silver republicans would vote against Mr. Dolliver or not cannot be stated. ANYBODY'S FIGHT. Maj. Handy in Chicago Times-Herald: At present the democrats who -seem to have a lighting chance for the nomination at Chicago are Horace Boies'-of Iowa, William K Morrison and Adlai Stevenson of-. Illinpis t . and silver Dick '."Bland' ofMissou'ri, all 6'f whom are willing to take the nomination on almost any old platform. Morrison's chances have been quickened by the report of a coalition of Altgeld; Boies' and Eland's by the solid report of their respective states, and Stevenson's by the discovery that he and Cleveland hate each other more than ever. So far, however, it is anybody's race, and not the least possible of possibilities is a reaction which will put a straddler on a straight-out free-silver platform. Expediency is everything in democratic politics. Always Go Wrong. Ft. Dodge Messenger: It is now conceded that the 16 to 1 silverites will have control of the democratic national convention, and Gov. Boies is in the front rank of possibilities for the presidency. Another chapter is about to be written in the history of the democratic party from which a few years later it will pray vainly to be delivered. It has never failed to make a mistake at each critical period. In 1860 it split in two, in 1864 it declared that the attempt to suppress secession was a failure, in 186S it favored paying the bonds in greenbacks, in 1872 it was opposed tp all steps towards resumption, in 1876 it demanded the immediate repeal of the resumption act. It has been against every step to maintain the national credit and put the finances on a solid basis. After resumption was estab- flopped over and became more vociferous than anybody for the maintenance of gold payments. The re- i* i # !3 £ 3 0 an.

The Sherman act, it will be remembered, was an effort to sustain the price of silver by buying and using as money the full product of the United States. The democrats were mad about that. They declared in their national platform that the maintenance of parity between the two metals was "especially necessary for the protection of the farmers and laboring classes, the first and most defenseless victims of unstable money and fluctuating currency." Now because the republican party is opposed to the free coinage of 50 cents' worth of silver into a dollar, the democratic party intends to declare for it. The interests of the farpoers and laboring classes, in its opinion, now require "unstable money and a fluctuating currency f " The democratic party will be sick of this year's work for a long period, and if by any chance it should be able to put 16 to 1 into practice, so much the worse for it- The way its robber tariff campaign reacted would be a light affair in comparison.
