It is unlikely that they will do this peaceably, especially if their forces are joined, as they will be, by the lawless and outcast elements of the "big cities within easy reach- of Washington. It is much safer to meet the issue while the "army" is in small di* visions than it will be then, and it is an issue that will have to be met with firmness if the movement continues to grow. The railways would be criminally guilty if they should mass a great force of the unemployed at Washington free of charge simply to get rid of the bother of keeping them off the trains. Iowa has done right in attempting to prevent any popular approval of the Kelly movement and any assistance in furthering his plans. U thefi asks: " What has the governor to do With the Hew liquor law?" Exactly what he has to dd with the law against invaslofl of any othef species of lawlessnes the local author i* ties prove inadequate to suppress. There are several contributions to the May Atlantic Worthy of mote than common note. One of them, " From Blomiddn to Smoky," is the first of a series of four artt- cles'by the late Frank Bolles. The papers peach, Miles had against Peffef and ^wofi Peffer was not satisfied. ft emit it and Mrs. represent his last studies of nature, and Were his last literary Work'. 'I'hey were all the outcoiae of a summer excursion through Nova Scotia in is08. The memory of Francis Parkttian is honored by articles from his fellow-historians, Justin Wihsor and •Tohn Fiske. Mr. Fiske's paper is the longer, and all the space at his command has been usecl to appraise and illuminate Mr. Parkmati's work With extraordinary clearness. ' . All members of the Upper Des Moines Editorial association Will mourn the death of F. Q. Lee, which occurred at Hammond, La., last Week.- He Was-vice president of the association at the Algona meeting and responded to the address of Welcome. He was a genial, • -likeable man Who made friends of all he came in contact With, and his death at the early ago of 48 years is untimely. The Omaha Bee says it cost Iowa 81,000 to cull out .the militia at Council Bluffs. The Dos Moines News says it was nearer 85,000. W. T. Stead says the assessments of Chicago property for taxation have fallen §70,000,000 in twenty years, and gives some personal assessments as follows: P. D. Armour, $5,000; Marshall Field, $20,000; Marshall Field Jr., $2,000;. Geo. M. Pullman, $12,000; C. T. Yertfes, ?4,000; Potter Pnlmor, §15,000.

Estherville Vindicator: Prof. Davidson was at Algona last Friday as one of the'judges in the home declamatory contest. Mr. Davidson speaks highly of Algona's opera house. It seats about 800 people, <3I/ERK OF Till! SUP11J3M33 COUHT. During the past few weeks the namo of S. S. Sessions of Algona has been associated in many papers with the nomination of a candidate for clerk of the supreme court at the coming republican state convention. The assurances of support he has received from many parts of tbe state have been sufficient to warrant him in entering the field, and his claims will be presented at the proper time to the consideration of republicans. As a member of the legislature at the session just closed he has added a largo list of acquaintances to Ihose he gained as director of the state agricultural society, and his qualifications for the position are well known to those who will exercise a powerful influence in the convention. His appointment to the chairmanship of the important committee on insurance placed him where his capacities as a legislator were fully tested, and it is conceded on all sides that he served with credit. Mr. Sessions is a young man. He was born in Wisconsin in 1856,'and grew to manhood in Chautauqua' county, N. Y. He came to Kossuth county in 1880 and began the study of law, being admitted to practice in due time by examination before the supreme court. Having spent his boyhood on the farm ho early took an active interest in the county agricultural society of which he was secretary for many years. He was elected later as director of the state agricultural society, a position which he resigned upon his election to the legislature. His legal attainments amply qualify him for the duties of the office, he is genial and affable in his address, and would render excellent service to the state. His friends appreciate that there will be many others whose claims for consideration will be worthy of attention and that many interests will be "considered by the party in making a nomination. All they bespeak for him is the friendly consideration that will "be accorded to others, in the belief that no candidate will be presented who would more acceptably perform the duties of the office, President Stevens of the National Editorial association sends out a programme of the coming meeting in which ho says: Corresponding Secretary J. M. Pago says that indications arc that the next annual meeting of the National Editorial association, to be held at Asbury Park, N. J., July 2, 3, 4, 5, and 0, will be more largely attended than any previous meeting in the association's history. The Asbury Park people are malting extensive preparation for a most attractive entertainment, Ocean voyage, a trip up the Hudson, a banquet, clambake, drives and other diversions will be tendered the visitors. On Tuesday morning Sam. M. Clark of the Keokulc Gate City, than whom there is not a brighter editor in Iowa, will read a paper upon "The Editorial Department." The remainder of the morning will bo occupied lay flve-min- ute papers upon and discussion of such subjects as are intimately connected with the editorial department. Among participants will bo H. M. Bushnell of Nebraska, Harvey Ingham of Iowa, Gco. M. Whittaker of Massachusetts, J. K. Vardeman of Mississippi, J. R. Buxton of Washington, O. H. Baskotto of Tennessee, M. J. Bowling of Minnesota, E. E, Taylor-of Iowa, J. H. Lindsay of Virginia, Thos. W. B'ishop of North Dakota, Chas. T. Fail-field of Michigan, and others. At the evening meetings addresses will bo delivered by distinguished journalists, among them Robert J. Bui'- dotto, the famous humoi'ist, Col, A. K. McClure of the Philadelphia Times, Clon, Chas. H. Taylor of the Boston Globe, and others. It is reported that Gen. J, B 1 . Weaver will shortly go to Kansas and be the populist candidate for congress from the Sixth district of that state. The Register asked him in Dos Moines about the matter, and ho declined to discuss it or make any statement. The State Register wants Gov. Jackson to order out the militia, take a railway train in charge, and ship Kelly's army to the Mississippi rlver» What kind of a precedent would that bo for the future? Why should Kelly's army bo carried across the country free of chargel A man named Schmelz living at Marshall, Minn., discovered a gold mine on his farm and sent a sample of the dust to Washington, The express charge was $1, the value of the sample $0. it was iron pyrites, FOR, AKIJOU DAY, State Superintendent Sabin has sent out over the state the following anthem to be sung at every school house in the state Friday, in honor of arbor day, The anthem was written by Rev, S,. F. Smith, author of our national hymn, "America," and is arranged for the sa.me music. Joy lor tlje sturdy treea! Panned by each fragrant breeze.

Dr. Lewis Frye has decided to locate at Germania instead of at Hurt. Spirit Lake is proposing to put its band on a business basis as is now proposed in Algona. Geo, W, Hanna bought another farm last week near LuVerne. It is the Thos. L, Steven place. The Algona district camp meeting of the Methodist church will be beld at Lake Mills early in July, Hurt will observe arbor day Friday and the schools will plant trees and have a special programme. A car load of Spencer people went to Spirit Lake to see the Andrews' " Mikado" in the new opera, house there. Emmetsburg Peraocrat: P. 0. Peter' son has purchased some timber near Algona and will employ himself cutting it off and selling it. Webster City has dropped the northern towns in tbe racing circuit deal and has joined Boone, Carroll, etc. A circuit with Algona in/Is unlikely. The Emm'etsburg' Democrat says for a joke on Dolliver that he is distributing, garden seeds, believing "in using schemes that are productive." The government must be furnishing different seeds this spring than it ever has before. R. H, Nicoll, son of the poet of Milford who aided at the editorial banquet in Algona, is at Dwight, 111., taking the Keeley cure. He is a young man of ability, with an appetite for Whiskey he has not been able to control. Estherville Republican: Prof, Davidson was at Algona Friday night as one of the judges at that city's 'declamatory contest. Will Galbraith won, •first honors,, although Prof. D. said his markings favored. Miss Cowan. The victor will be sent to "the state contest; Sheldon Mail: Geo. E. Clarke of Algona and H. G. McMillen of Rock Rapids, a brace of as brainy lawyers and us good fellows as the btir of northwest Iowa boasts, were saluting friends on the streets of this metropolis Tuesday Miss Lillian Dor ward visited friends at Algona Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and while there attended the wedding of her grandmother. West Bend has a company to be known as the Union Building company, Alex. Younie, Joseph Dorvveiler, and others are in it.. The articles of incorporation state that the capital is '$25,000 and that the general nature of the business shall be the buying, selling, holding, improving and leasing and dealing in real estate, and to borrow money and issue its obligations therefor. Emmetsburg Reporter: In a recent cut of the Twenty-fifth general assembly some of the individual cuts are very striking. For instance, that of Kossuth's popular representative, Col. Sessions, reminds one forcibly of the great and good Graver. If we' were in Col. Sessions' place we would sue the publishers for damages, as 1 ut will certainly tend to lessson his popularity among his democratic friends. 'Miss Edith Prouty won her first jury case at Humboldt last Week, and thp first jury case tried by a women in this part of Iowa. An insurance company sued to recover §50 on an insurance note. Miss Prouty conducted the defense, which was on the ground that the defendants 'had been induced to sign the note, which they could not read, supposing it to be a $10 note only, instead of §50. Miss Prouty's father is well known as a lawyer and she is sustaining his reputation. The fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of Odd Fellows in Iowa, which was to have been celebrated on the 4th inst., has been postponed,,to Oct. 17 next. This change-Was ordered by the grand lodge of the state. Iowa now ranks fourth in jurisdiction 'in the United States. The celebration will be of a magnitude never before attempted in the state. The grand lodge meets at Burlington in October and the first day of the meeting will be given up to the fiftieth anniversary, Wesley Reporter: Ye editor and wife wore in Algona yesterday for the first time and although a trifle muddy were nevertheless favorably impressed with the appearance of our county seat. We put up with Uncle Joe Tennant and though ho was full from top to bottom—the house we mean—wo were royally entertained. In the evening wo witnessed " Mikado" played by Andrews' popular opera company, which we enjoyed very much. The Call Opera house is a gem and a credit to the best county in the state. Bro. Platt indulges in reminiscences of the LuVerno News in noticing Hugh Smith's purchase of that paper: Mr, Smith served as foreman in the Ne,ws office for a year during the time the writer had editorial charge of that paper and is one of four young men who, during the last four years, have gone out from under our fatherly care to assume the management of papers of their own. The other three are Eugene Crosswaito, of the Earlham Echo; John Bieggor of the Bode Bugle and J. A. Reagan of the Armstrong Journal, all of whom are shining lights in their respective localities and are making good papers. We hope to see Bro. Smith keep the News right up in line along with the other bright papers in Kossuth and Humboldt counties. Bro, Sinclair will seek a new field for his usefulness, but just where is as yet undecided. FOR THE STATE CONTEST, Active :Pr6flafft,tto«8 Belnff Made for the Stnte Meeting to Be Held in Alffonn, Mny 4 Fifteen Contestants Will Take Part, and Large Delegations are Expected horn Various Sections.

With each contestant the schools are entitled to two delegates and probably 100 visitors will be in town, besides the numbers who will come from our neighboring towns to witness the entertainment. Prof. Dixson, as chajrman of the local committee, has prepared and sent out a circular in which he says: "Reduced rates, on the certificate plan, have been secured over the following roads: B., C.

This* certificate, when properly signed by the chairman of the local committee, will enable the holder to procure a return ticket at one-third fare, provided that 100 such certificates over the'terminal lines have been signed. Earnest efforts are being made to secure the attendance of a number from the towns surrounding. The prospect of success is quite certain, thus giving a reasonable assurance of a reduction. These certificates may be secured as early as May 1, and will be honored until May 8/> The business meeting of the association will be held at the Thorington house at 2 o'clock, Friday. The contest will open promptly at 8 o'clock.

The Upper DCS Moiiies Closes AVhnt It ITns to Say on the Matter by Again Showing that No Cause of Offense has Been Given Mayor Call. Mayor Call is out in a second letter in the Courier, much longer than the first and mainly on a new line. By not saying anything more about any intentional injury to him in reporting the resolution adopted by the board and the reason given for it, he practically admits that we are acquitted of the charge. His second letter' substantially corroborates the statement made by us about the Ringling license money, that he, collected it and made no report to the treasurer and did not turn the money into the treasury, that in fact he paid out the money before March 27 of this year when he made his first report to the treasurer and settlement, so that the money was never in the treasury at all. Under these circumstances and especially as for at least five years previously it had been the treasurer's duty to collect the clrcua license himself, it is not strange that he should have concluded that no license had been paid. Mayor Call can hardly wish to be taken seriously in his suggestion that the treasurer should have inquired of him or of the deputy marshal if money had been paid into the city, In this second letter Mr. Call says we were wrong in saying that there is no record of licenses in the city books. It is true that the council a year ago passed a resolution instructing the mayor to procure a license book where the issuance of licenses is noted. But Wo had in mind a record of money paid for licenses which should be in the treasurer's office showing how much money- has been received and what for. He says also that he did not make a verbal report of his licenses to the treasurer In March, but that he turned over his check for $48.5.5 for licenses and took a receipt and presented a warrant for §550, which was his year's salary, and wanted it endorsed so as to draw interest, but that the treasurer paid it off by returning his check tvnd $1.55, This is a mere variation of statement of what we said, He concludes by saying that the treasurer usurped his authority by issuing a license to Alderman on his billiard hall, On inquiry we find that all the treasurer did was to receive Alderman's license money and issue a receipt for it, winch has been, the custom for many years and we believe was provided by ordinance in the incorporated town, The mayor issues the permit and the treasurer takes and receipts for the money, thus arranging for a check on both officers, The treasurer jnight be blamed for taking the money before the mayor had issued a permit) but Alderman had been running several years and it was probably taken for granted that the mayor would again license him on presentation of his receipt, The treasurer has issued no licenses, THE UPPPR DBS MOINES had intended to go extensively into these matters and into general matters of city government in this issue and has spent some time in looking over the statutes and ordinances. But thinking that tbe discussion might he looked on AS a personal controversy has Avoided to drpp it. The whole misunderstand' ipghas ajpisen, put pf % very natwraji and Iwlly e?pla|ne4 pistake, §n4 THE S, wWle4eprecattsg f tb,§ W£ (ioncinatfln we dealro to Soy oriiy that the Iftw of Iowa requires that nil money shall be paid into tho treasury ftnd shall be paid out only on wafrattts issued by the council certified by the olork and paid and endorsed by the treasurer-, and thttt ovepy month the clOfk shall publish in the official papers a full list of such warrants. This Inttor clnuse bus never been oboved in Algona, and it is very important. Algona has nearly $3,000 'of warrants outstanding and will soon have many thousands more and no report of thorn has been made to the people. The law is obligatory and now that attention Is called to it will undoubtedly be mndb operative. The tax payers should know wlnit money is being paid out, who to, and what for. S, S, SESSIONS FOB OLEEK, Strongly ISiidofBod by Various tte- jntbHctttt 1'npers of tins Stnte. The Harlan American clips the following from the Des Moines Capital: "Representative Sessions of Kossuth comity is a candidate for clerk of the supremo court and his large circle of friends propose to help him. to get the nomination. Colonel Sessions made many friends during the recent session of the legislature." '. It then says: "Col. Sessions was one of the strong men in the Blouse; He occupied an-important position as chair^ man of tbe committee on insurance, and as such reported favorably for passage a number of wise measures, among them the valued policy bill, and Mr. Byers' bill against insurance combines,, and many others. His votes on all measures were on the side of the people. Col. Sessions will have the support of western Iowa in , his- laudable candidacy for the clerkship. No better man could be chosen." The Grand Army Advocate of April 15 says at the close of a personal sketch: " Mr. Sessions personally has no political aspirations, but it is claimed by many that he is the most available man for the office of clerk of the supreme court, and it is not unlikely that he will be the nominee of the republican party this fall for that importantofflce." BULLETS WEBE PLENTY. One of Our Citizens Elres a Dozen or More into the Floor and Ceiling: of the Thorington Street Billiard Hall. Thursday evening of last week J. R. Brown came into the billiard hall next to the Tennant house and being pretty well under the influence of liquor drew his revolver and shot a lamp chimney off for amusement, then peppered the lamp and make a circle of holes in the ceiling and floor. Officers arrived on the scene in time to stop any further display and Friday morning Brown was arrested by City A-ttorney Joslyn and brought before 'Squire Clarke. He pleaded guilty and after talking to him a while the justice fined him $75 and costs, with the understanding that the fine would not be collected if Brown left the county in 10 days for good. Brown paid the costs,- $7.50, and will settle for what damage he did. Ho thinks of leaving the county. THE UPPER DES MOINES has had occasion to refer to Brown several times before, and desires to commend 'Squire Clarke's decision. Brown comes from a good family and could make a living in any reputable business. .But in most of the roles he has appeared in so far in Algona he has not been a credit to himself or to the town.

QUAKT01TMAKIM PEIENDS. A Good AVorcl for Ills Candidacy for the Judgeship in Pocaliontas County. The Pocahontas Record makes a very flattering notice of Kossuth's candidate to succeed Judge Cam S. H. Kerr of Rolfe and W. B. Quarton of Algona were in town yesterday, looking after some business matters, Mr. Quarton has finally yielded to the pressure brought to bear by his friends and has come out as a • candidate for district judge in this district. He has hosts of friends all over the district and will make it exceedingly interesting for the rest of the candidates before the convention. He made a very good impression while here in this place and our boys have a warm feeling for him. As a lawyer he has few equals in northwestern Iowa and if nominated and elected he will give up a splendid practice. A.BODE INVENTION, of A. AC. Anderson Has a Now Way Raising Strawberries. A. M, Anderson of Bode has an inventive and economical turn of mind. He has decided to test a new method for raising strawberries. He has taken a barrel and bored the sides full of holes, and as he filled the barrel with dirt, set a strawberry plant in each hole, By this means he does not propose to do any weeding, and will not have to go very far to gather hia strawberries. W, PM Miller, who has just escaped one $10,000 libel suit, reports the facts and adds: "We have suggested to him an additional improvement; which is that he head the barrel up, mount it on an axle, put a crank on one end of it, and when he wishes to pick strawberries, have bis son Clarence turn the crank while he sits in an easy chair on one side and knocks the berries off into a dish." The first case under' the new liquor law is on for hearing. County AttOr- . ney .Raymond and Sheriff Samson Captured M. B. Smith, a restaurant keeper" at Bancroft, Saturday. They began with a search .warrant Friday and 12. Cases of Marshalltown BV B. and a barrel of old style Milwaukee beer afe in town awaiting tt test by Dr. Kehefick' and a hearing before 'Squire Clarke. The law will take its usual course a9 to confiscating the beer and fining . Mr. Smith. But the new feature is. that a $600 tax is to,,be assessed against, the property the beer was sold on.'',' We understand that Mr. Smith .owns ' the building and,lot, in which case justice will be done, for the tax tvill' probably about ,take the outfit. If others have interests justice will, still be done, for they have had full warning that property where beer is sold, is liable. In any event it must be seen to that in this first 1 case : the tax is properly levied and collected. It will" serve to illustrate the new law better* than anything that, can be done. ' SMITH PLEADS GUILTY..: , Mr. Smith and his attorney appeared:before 'Squire Clarke yesterday, and on hearing the result of the test made by. Drs. Kenefick and McCoy, which showed five per cent.- of- alcohol in his health-, drink, he pleaded guilty and was fined$75. Mr. Smith testified that he. had •. bought thebeer for hisown use and had • never sold any, and Banci'oft. citizens • bore him out in his statement. Ha., sold the Marshalltown drink on.the be-, lief that it was not intoxicating and on , the warranty of the manufacturer. Un- . der these circumstances it would un-;.. doubtedly_ be unjust to go further against him than the present fine, if h&. quits the business. But this trial .will-, put all health-drink sellers on their inquiry, and the next, one who. comes up' should have the $600 tax assessed on the property. It is said that several- places in Algona are selling this drink. If they are the tax .should be assessed at once, unless they quit. WHAT IT POSTS TO BE SIOE. The Charges Fixed by the County Medical Society for Attendance on Ordinary Cases—Some Iiuxuries. The county medical association met last week and completed its final organization, adopted its fee bill, and arranged to hold quarterly meetings ' hereafter. The next comes at Bancroft, July 10. To our readers the most interesting part of the proceedings is the fee bill, and we publish for their benefit the scale of charges to be made in common diseases, which on the whole they can allol'd to have. But wo warn them to look out for symplepheron, for that will cost them $15 to 3550 and may be considered a luxury although there would be some distinction in being able to speak the name. There is also arich'ylobphleron, which costs $15 to $50. Pterygium runs up to $75, but chalazium is as low as 85. People should inspect the whole list before chosing. For evei-yday occurrences it is as follows: First examination and prescription $ 50 to $ 200 Examination, advice and prescription at office, according to Importance of case and time occupied... 1 00 to 500 Written opinion or special advice 1 00 to 5 00- Visit in city or villase 150 Visit in city or village at night, extra 50 to 100 Each additional visit to same patient same day 100 way calls, country 150 Visit in consultation, with mileage 5 00 to 1000 Each subsequent consultation visit 850 Certificate of health 1 00 Attendance, in case of poisoning, apoplexy, epilepsy, concussion of the brain, recusitation in drowning, injuries by lightning 5 00 to 1000 For an opinion involving a question at law where a physician may be subpoenaed . 10 00 to 50 00 Medico-legal cases, fee per diem 25 00 to 100 00 Post-mortem examination made at request of friends 25 00 Exploration of chest and opinion SOOto 500 Urinary analysis S 00 to 1000 Life insurance examination, exclusive of secret organizations , Rising at night and prescribing.
