McFarland, West Bend democratic candidate for state senator: "I had it pointed out to me that an attempt was being made to keep : my article out of the papers. Before j we reached home from St. Paul, we ! were told this and shown your letter. "We looked up the definition of the word 'peculate 1 before we used It and knew of what we Spoke. One of the many definitions and the one we intended was taking money that did not belong to the peculator or not his own." This Is how we used the word. "We would suggest there be a suit started at once against say the Algona. Advance, B. F. McFarland, and the State Supreme Court. This would be fine and just as well test the matter as not. The Supreme Court told the offenders just what I did. They surely will be included: Copy Was Held Up.

With the 'letter above published (Mr. McFarland sent a printed sheet giving copies of a second debate challenge from- Senator Patterson ; ,j en under date of August 11 and his (MoFarland's) reply dated 12, as follows: ; 'Patterson to McFarland — I trusted representative and this without having accomplished one thing in the equalization of the tax bur- ob- I serve that in several newspapers 'you have issued statements declining to accept my challenge to debate any of our state problems. In the August 4 issue of tlie Lakota Record, however, is an advertisement signed by yourself in which the fol- j lowing sentence appears: "I wish to acknowledge Mr. Patterson's challenge for debate and hasten to accept." I hereby extend to you the courtesy of naming the time and place for this debate. McFarland's Reply—Your kind invitation at hand. Now I'd love to make the trip with you, George, but the truth is that my time is taken tip until November 1st and I can not. People are more interested in what we do than what we say anyway, and I'm debating you in every newspaper everywhere and will con-, tinue it. I'm thinking that maybe Bext spring when I get back from Dee Moines T may make a short trip A $75,000 blunder may readily be forgiven if it is committed in an effort to serve; but this additional tax was forced upon a defenseless people in order that the ones who voted it might divide the "swag" among themselves. Had it not been for the Supreme Court they would have escaped with their ill gotten gain. with you. But now I can not as I I Wh >' did lhave to make a trip to Canada early in September. Debate Challenge Accepted. The two foregoing printed sheets were accompanied by a third sheet in the nature of a newspaper contribution, and for the second time the puzzling process of acceptance after denial of the debate challenge appears. Thi.s communication is published without comment as follows : 'In the issue of July 2S there appeared cm article by Senator Geo. W. Patterson, of Burt, in which he we reached the deplor- necessary for the Supreme Court to protect us from our legislators is a question that is now confronting us. •Not wishing to impose upon newspaper space, I shall make a brief summary and conclude this installment of the debate hoping that Mr. Patterson will have the courage to carry on. Ketruyal is Charged. It is undeniable history that Patterson went to the legislature pledged to a tax reduction program for the home and farm • owners. It is also history that his only effective efforts in tax revision have been to increase the tax burden by $75,000. this? Let me answer. challenges me for debate. accept that challenge. I gladly My plans for this campaign have Because he wanted to benefit personally by the increase of burden-he placed upon the people. This in itself constitutes a betrayal of his pledge; but the principal .offense was in the effort- to render impotent the state constitution in order that he might be privileged to draw an additional $500. Mr. Patterson now tries to work upon the sympathies of the people. Let us remind the senator that thousands of people who he represents have lost their homes on account of the oppressive conditions. We feel that we are justifed in contending that if he was perfectly fair under which the masses are forced to exist he would not be compelling them to contrib- Announcements have been received here of the marriage of C. F. Borchardt, Des Moines, to Pearl Marie 'Stoner, of Granger, July 2 at the Methodist parsonage, Lancastez-, Mo. The newlyweds spent the Fourth brother here at A. H. the bridegroom's Borchardt's, but though the local Borchardts knew of the marriage then the news was not given out. The bridegroom is well known here, for he was jeweler ,at his brother A. H.'s drug store till four years ago, when he accepted a position as traveling salesman for the M. A. Lombard Co., jewelers at Des iMoines. -He is the son of Mr. and •Mrs. Fred Borchardt, Harrington, Kans. Mrs. Borchardt, who is the daughter of Mrs. Martha Stoner, of Granger, is in the employ of the Pratt Paper Co., Des Moines. The couple are now at home at GOD Prospect Road, Des Moines. Erma Fox, Carroll Johnson AVed— Erma Fox was married to Carroll Johnson at the Lutheran parsonage, Fairmont, Sunday in the presence of her father, Milton Fox, and Mr. Johnson's mother. The ceremony by the Lutheran Fiemming's honor at luncheon and Algonians who attended were Mrs. Kenefick, Mrs. William Nugent, and Helen DIngley. : ' ' Lone' Rock Pair Married— Minnie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. A. Knoll, Lone Rock, and Arthur Baker,. Lone Rock, were married at the Methodist parsonage, Armstrong,. Monday at 2:30 p. m. by the Rev. e. R Mitchell, -pastor.

In this program of debate I can proceed without the slightest deviation and can also improve upon tiie original plan by a widening process made possible by Mr. Patterson's courageous offer. I'littoruon Iterord Assailed. When Mr. Patterson first recommended Irimfielf so highly to the people he pronounced liim.seif a thorough reformer who would strike at the evil wherever he found it and in his zeal for the office worked diligently to create the impression that j meet at 2:30 today with Mrs. W. T. too was 100 per cent lily white vari- I Presnell; Mrs. Loren Larson, les- ety of statesman. people believe it, He made a lot of including myself, and ha was entrusted with this great power and an opportunity for which he asked to serve the people of Kossuth county, as well as the . senatorial district in the state legislature. What has he accomplished? We feel justified in .saying that the eum total of his accomplishments are a minus quantity. All this .after ten years of opportunity and he still asks the people to accept him as a tax reformer Let us take a look at his tax reform record by considering the basis of hig argument in his several campaigns when asking for reelection. Ho has always told the common people that they paid an unjust portion of the tux, and that the basis for taxation should be adjusted in order that people should pay in accordance with their a'bility to pay. He liaci told us repeatedly that the fight was almost won and always asks to be ssnt back that he may Biake A triumphant finish in the interest of his beloved constituents. I wish at thici time to state that I have ahvayn done what was possible as a private citizen in support of an income tax, yet I demand that the taxpayers and not the legislators receive the ben&fit. Deiuos la Salary Crab. Mr. Patterson, in his grasping at straws to aave himself from sinking into political oblivion, tries to escape £h« jttigma of the "salary grab" act by claiming Che bill to be a. democratic measure, There were, ae we was performed pastor. Erma is a graduate of the Algona high school, and after graduation she taught In Kossuth rural schools till three years ago, when she accepted a position as clerk ~ at the Goeders store. Mr. Johnson carne here a year or so ago and Is em-ployed at the local telephone office. His parents live at Eagle Grove.

Camping Iowa this week extended her of- ffcial invitation to thousands of vacation seekers throughout the mid- west to take the "world's cheapest vacation" this summer in the one trandred acre free camp grounds which will be thrown open to the public at the Iowa State Fair here August 24 to September 2. Over 25,000 families are expected to take their 1932 outings at this year's Iowa State Fair, taking advantage of these free camping privileges. Officials say that a family can live in the State Fair camp as cheaply as at home, at the same .time enjoying a week at the n.a lion's largest agricultural and livestock exposition. The huge camp ground is beautifully wooded, covered with blue grass, equipped with modern streets, electric lights, city water service, stores, shower baths, post office, and all possible conveniences. Visitors may pitch their tents anywhere they like and stay as long as they like. Did you ever see more than 5,000 pennies at once? Well, neither had R. G. Richardson, Algona furniture dealer, till a week or so ago. Last spring—March 1, to be exact—B. P. Sorensen, of the Paine & Sorensen drug-store, began saving pennie6. He filled one cigar box, then another, finally a third. Then Ben, or maybe Mrs. Ben, conceived th e idea that some new furniture was needed at home, and it was bought of Mr. Richardson. And the pennies were tendered and accepted in payment. air. Sorensen had weighed them at 37% pounds, and he estimated that at nine pennies to the ounce the total number would be 5100. Mr. Richardson took them to the bank, where they were counted in an automatic machine, and it was found that Mr. Sorensen's estimate was remarkably close, only a cent off, in fact. The total was 5101. Pennies are legal tender for only 25c, but Mr. Richardson says -he will accept any number. And it is underetood that Mrs. Ben considers saving pennies by one's husband a grand stunt- provided he comes across gracefully when three cigar boxes have been filled.
