An effort seems likely to defeat" this method of 1 Selection. Z. A. Church, who was on i the committee of permanent organization from the Tenth district last year, writes to the Register a yery vigorous protest against depriving the con- "vepiionof the right to select its own Officers, Last year his committee chose Senator Harlan for permanent ' chairman and were about to report his name, when informed that Senator Lawrence had been chosen beforehand, and rather than create a scene the name of Lawrence was substituted. His unfortunate incapacity to flll the position did nothing to bring the new practice into good repute, and his long, wearisome speech was rather against the argument that the perma- .nent chairman should be chosen beforehand, to enable him to prepare an ^address. Anything but a few informal remarks by the permanent chairman is an unnecessary infliction upon ttfe •convention. There are dozens of men in; every congressional district who can say all that is required on an hour's notice, and there are many good reasons why the convention should be left free to secure presiding officers • of its own choice, especially when issues 'are up on which there is any division. Senator Harsh would excellent chairman, and could say well all that his good taste permit him to attempt to say, "ftipiiMIdiltf tj&weiHJoth." fK»e sleM fifty Jaaml hfts made & list of ttiote now ia tiiefieidi Seetetaf,? 6f dta{e-*-W, M.

'Were chosen in convention. sharp be an easily would if he the old way by the HISTORY -WIL.L, REPEAT ITSEI/F. Kelly's army left Iowa Saturday. During the time they have been in the state a young German has come to Algona, and without being able to speak a word of English, has had all the work he could do at good wages. In 10 years he will be well-to-do, and the Kelly army of the next decade will be just as it is now, full of men who have watched him and his kind get rich, all the while proclaiming from store boxes that there Is no chance for the poor man. With all the depression .and disaster bad management has brought on the country, a living is .more comeatable today than it was in .fairly good times a half a century ago. The men who pioneered Iowa endured cheerfully hardships that the Kellyites were never asked to confront even on the Des Moines sandbars. The foundations of the fortunes of today were laid in economies no Kellylte would practice and in deprivations no Kellyite would endure. Fifteen years ago good wages .for good farm hands were $14 to §16 a month. If Kelly's men would do the same quality of work for the same wages now they would he absorbed in any five counties in Iowa in a week. A strapping six footer, who had for five years been getting §4 a day as an iron moulder, gave away the secret of Kelly's cause to an Algonia'n as he asked him in the city hall in Chicago lor ten cents for a drink to wash down the free breakfast public charity had provided him with, He had never saved any money because the union would take care of him, The Kellyites intend to live as they please, work when they please, save nothing, and have the government take care of them. Their predecessors* along down the corridors of tbe ages have invariably come to grief, John N. Baldwin, who is to be temporary chairman of the republican state convention,; is one of the finest looking young men in Iowa, and is an accomplished orator. If he does himself justice he will make a speech which will rank along with the brilliant and memorable effort with which J, Pi Dolliver opened his public career when he was temporary chairman. He is only son of Caleb Baldwin, once judge of the supreme bench of Iowa. His father was a very large man who stooped to go through an ordinary doorway. It is said that he was much bothered once by some returning soldiers, after the war, one of whom called the rest to come and see the man a big wooden sign boot on the street was made for. John Baldwin is attorney for several railways at Council Bluffs, owns a big five story business block, and was lately -offered a big railway general attorneyshlp in Chicago, but declined it. Henry Watterson does not hesitate to make known his attitude towards the latest tariff bill the democrats. It is " a mongrel piebald of patches and pusillanimity, a grotesque hodgepodge of pretense and pettifogging, a nondescript abortion of incompetency, selfishness, cowardice and treachery." $gg out of Rafiftey's possession at Burt not lone ago, dne $20 bill has been found and ft $10 bill, There is still $26* rolling 1 tip hill for someone.

Pride of Algona wns ih femmetsburg on professional business, Thursday. The doctor is an excellent practitioner and stands Very high in the medical profession, firitt got a town well at 200 feet. There are 188 feet of water which six hours of continuous pumping with a six-inch cylinder failed to lower. Mr. Swanson has dug that while at work with his forces here at Algona, Emmetsburg Reporter: Rev. Gorrel of Algona occupied the pulpit in the Episcopal church, Sunday morning and evening. He is an able and fluent talker and Is universally respected. His discourses were spoken very highly of. Livermore Gazette: Our former citizen, Geo. Howard of Algona, was in toWn Wednesday and made us a pleasant call. Mr, Howard Is now representing the original Bankers' Life association of Des Moines, which has the reputation of being a splendid organization, and without doubt he will do well with It. It has been found in the Carroll high school that the boys who do not smoke average fully four per cent, more in their studies than those who do smoke. The Herald says: This result was obtained by first finding out which papers were written by smokers and which by non-sinokers. Tobacco is a positive injury to the young mind as well as body. Webster City Tribune: The Tenth congressional district biennial convention is to be held in Webster City on Tuesday, July 10, at 10 o'clock, a. m, Hamilton county's committeeman, Hon. L. A.

The New York Sun pours out consolation to the democrats and to President Cleveland in true Sun fashion: The bill for the redistribution of atrocities now before the senate satisfies nobody but the beneficiaries of the redistribution and G rover Cleveland, who wants "a settlement." The settlement he wants is anything that will relieve him from further responsibility for tariff reform. To wind up the adventure to which he summoned the democracy in 1886 with a ringing bugle call, he would go down on bis knees to William McKinley, Jr., himself, if that were necessary. "War to the knife!" was the first watchword. "Peace at any price!" is the last. And peace at what a price! The party's pledges trampled on, the democracy betrayed, the unique opportunity rejected and forever lost. Protection unsootched the populist income tax adopted, the drawbridge down for the men who inarch under the red flag. CONVENTION. The .following official announcement Is received from the chairman of the congressional committee; JVoVBBNP, May 16,—The congressional convention, will be held ftt Webster City, July 10, at 10 o'clock, a. m.

The government has imported 16 Laplanders to take charge of a reindeer station in Alaska. meeting at LuVerno Wednesday, and although the cities of Boone and Algona both wanted the convention Mr. McMurray succeeded in securing it for Webster City. There will be 126 delegates in the convention. The Monitor says the Burt band are to have a picnic a week from Saturday in Blake's grove on the river east of town. They have arranged a fine musical program which will be rendered by the different bands. Rev. C. H. Hawn will deliver an address. This with picnic dinner in the natural grove, refreshment stands, bowery dances, ball game, etc. etc., will make up a very pleasant day of outing. Teams will be run from Burt out to the picnic grounds for the accommodation of passengers. The matched game of hall will be between the Algona and Bancroft nines. The Humboldt Republican notes the sale of Jim Kelly's jewelry store at Bancroft to H. C. Utley of Livermore, and says: Herb, as he is best known, is an industrious boy, honest, upright and manly. He wants a good business, and thinks he is in a good location. Bancroft is quite a city, but only has two jewelry stores, and we think our friend Utley has a good place there. He would be completely fixed now if he had a partner in his business. Not another member of the firm, exactly, but a person who would take his name and share his fortune for good or bad. "A word to the wise," etc. It seems that Dr. Lacy did not win in his suit against Humboldt county, as the Renwick Times reported. The LuVerne News says: The case between Dr. Lacy and Humboldt county, referred to last week, was decided against the doctor. The bill was a small one, carefully itemized, containing a statement that tbe work was done by order of the township trustees, was audited by them at a regular meeting and signed by every member of the board and the township clerk, was sworn to by Dr. - Lacy and with all these facts proven the justice (?) decided as stated.

Millc Receipts Much Career Than Last Tear-The Early. Season Accounts for Low I'rlcea. Geo. S. Angus makes the follot^ng official statement about the Burt creamery: The receipts of milk at the creamery for tbe months of January, February, March, and April, have been 869,053 pounds, an increase over last year of 211,192 pounds, or over one- third more, with a corresponding Increase in the amount of butter made. The price now is down to 17 cents in New York, this time last year it was bringing 2ft cents. At first thought one would think that according to that the price will go down to the zero mark, but the season this year is at least two weeks in advance of last year, and two weeks later than this last year butter fell to 19 cents per pound, so that I think we have touched the low-water mark for the year. We are now in the flush of the season, Pastures are good and most of tbe cows are fresh. We are now receiving about 80,000 pounds of milk per week, CATIOWO OTOQi BEWQATIQir, 8t< Cecilia's ptmroh IP PP Formally 80, Tj»e de dilatory exercises at tbe new wiU be bjl4 Spirit Lake announces the second Chautauquft, season, July 10-25, with a justifiable reference to the success of last year when they competed with the world's fair and the pasnic and yet furnished everything they advertised, This year they promise a splendid programme, and as the lakes are so easy of access to Kossuth people, and as fishing goes with everything they have up there, the attendance from this region will be large.

The first matte? to come up in court was the petition of the Minneapolis <fc, St. Louis Railway company for 1 a re' opening of the Go*man cose, which was argued yesterday. This is the case, where Gorman was killed at LuVerne, His father was appointed executor and sued the company. At the trial in At* gona he won and got a judgment, An. appeal was taken to the supreme court, which reversed the judgment and sent- • the case back, D'uring this time Gorman's father died and Mrs. Gorman was made executrix of the father's estate, but not of the son's, but she thought that she had and she continued the suit. In the meantime A, E- Clarke, who had been attorney for the< railway in the matter, had gone to Minneapolis to live and the business at Fort Dodge was turned over to JR. M. Wright. He paid no attention to the< second trial at Algona, and the jury gave a verdict of some »$7,000,. Clarke-, and Quarton, who had the matter in charge, did nothing with the judgment until the year within which Mr. Wright could appeal or move for a new trial' was up, and then sent word to the company to pay. This was like a thunderclap to them, as they had no idea that anything had been done. . Mr. Wright in his petition urged a> reopening on the. ground that he as attorney for the company had watched the probate records in Webster county, had seen that Mrs. Gorman had no legal authority to carry on the suit, had not been informed by Messrs. Clarke and Quarton that anything was being- done in the case, and that such silence, added to other features of the second trial, was substantial fraud on him. He had several Iowa cases wherein judgments had been reopened after the appointed time had expired, A demurrer was filed to his petition, and in support of it Messrs. Clarke and Quarton insisted that as a matter of fact in the change of lawyers by the company the case had been lost sight of and forgotten, that they were under no obligation to notify Mr. Wright of '. the trial, because the fact that .the supreme court had sent it back was sufficient notice to him; that Mrs. Gorman having acted as executrix in fact her acts were binding on the company, and that the company could net set up its own neglect and blunder as ground for reopening the case. They also argued that in the cases cited there had been actual fraud or illegality in securing the judgments that the courts had reopened. Judge Carr took the matter under advisement and will decide it in vacation. It presents a. very curious, and to both parties important question, especially as some $8,000 probably hinges on the decision. ALGONA DISTBIOT OAMP MEETING.
