CLVB, The annual meeting Saturday even* lag of Algona business men who form the commercial club should be attended by everybody. The club has been or* ganized one year, and has done more • than enough in that time to warrant its existence. With the return of pros- jperity over the country it will be in po- filtlon to do much more for the city. Even if it amounted to no more than af* fording an {organization to which business propositions and visiting business Wen could be referred it is well worth ail it costs. The election of officers and the consideration of several matters of interest to the city ought to bring out a full attendance. It 'but the time spent. will cost nothing fof eheffilcals, caw, and the other pflmpWimlift, and has been at WB*k ih Color&aV fchd Kansas, and it must be confessed that most astonish* Ing things have happened, for white Colorado has beeh flooded a*id Kansas has been over-Wet, low* has been tin" usually dry. In Kansas it is said that suits will be brought against the Bock Island for damages by flood and hail. BofiGfi's WATUtt WtZAttDS, Since Fort Podge had her notable struggle over the co'w question she has done nothing to gab rentiwa equal to her rain making experiment, the participation of Mayor Granger and the prominent citizens in firing $125 worth of powder from a G. A. R. can* non at a cloudless sky, and the rains all over the state happening thereafter, justly entitle her to fame. The Messenger says that in spite of all the men bear themselves modestly, going " back and forth through the alleys and back yards in passing between their homes and offices, avoiding all display and excitement." And referring to the claims of the Rock Island rain makers, It puts In a good word for its home talent: " We understand that these foreign jug- WHERE IS THAT LETTER! The Courier refuses to publish that lette'r sent in by one of its subscribers containing clippings from its old editorials, and requesting it to review them, A week ago it promised to in the following item: "A communication received from a sub- ficriber will be answered next week." j But the anxious reader looked in vain for the answer in the next issue, •and he will continue to look in yain in the next one and for that matter all through the coming campaign. The only chance he will have of seeing either "subscriber's" letter or an answer to it will be through the assiduous .efforts of THE UPPER DES MOINES, which has offered several times to publish it if the Courier would turn over the manuscript. It now requests the subscriber, whoever he may be, to secure his letter, if it has not already been burned for safe keeping, and send it to us. We promise to give it top of column next to reading matter, and to make such comments upon it as we assume the Courier would feel like making if it did not have so much stronger a feeling not to make any. speculations by the president, Private property waa put up to the ateount &nd the president and- cashier were compelled to Step but. ^ Senator Bolter has wHtten' again to the democrats. Me closes his letter by say. Ing: " There is but one course for democracy to pilrsue with even a hope of success, and that is to boldly repudiate the present administration and sever relations with it as sooii as possible." , S0GAR WILL, GO UP. Senator Allison is a man who is listened to by all parties when he speaks on a financial question, because he is'known to possess.full information and to avoid random statements made for political effect. He was asked last Friday what the result of the new tariff on sugar will be and said: "At present the average cost of refined sugar at retail is about $1 for 20 pounds. The enactment of this bill will be followed at once, by an increase in the cost of sugar, ao that 14 or 15 pounds will be about the amount purchasable for $1, and yet the .general testimony of sugar experts is that the average cost of raw sugar is about 2% cents per pound, and Mr. Havemeyer himself testified' that the cost of refining is only . about three-eighths of a cent per pound." As arranged in- the committee the new tariff is not to go into effect for eome time, the purpose being to allow, the sugar trust to import enough raw sugar free of duty to keep the refineries busy after the tariff has raised the price. Senator Allison says that this may be changed in the senate. What this may mean to the trust he shows as follows; " The best judgment is that between Oct. 1 and Deo, 81 it would be possible to import nearly the entire raw sugar crop of this jrear, both beet and cane. With free raw sugar until January 1, next, the sugar trust can supply itself with enough raw material to keep its refineries busy for a long time to come. If the duty goes into effect on Oct; l it will not be possible to secure any of the . cane crop of Cuba and South America under tire terms of the MoKinley act. The PhillipJne islands alone harvest their crop in time to get it to the United States before the end of September," It is estimated that the sugar trust will make $30,000,000 if the date of the new law is postponed. , t Sen&tor Allison was one of the lead, era in getting free sugar. The cheapening of the cost of living every man • jneaUsed at once, By putting a high tariff back on sugar the present coq, £resB is levying a heavy tax on a prime of life and enormously enrich*of the most unscrupulous /monopolies now in existence, as the testimony of'Us own office re before tbe investigating committee has during the two. weeks fully disclosed, ram, DUI me people nere will stand by their own talent. If you want to buy fruit trees, lightning rods, or rain, buy at home, of the people you know and where you can return the goods if they are not as represented." Some of the telegrams which the Messenger says have been received speak for the practically world wide effect of the Fort Dodge explosions: WASHINGTON, D. C., June 16.—C. L Granger, President Rainmakers' Unions I see funnel shaped clouds in every direction. Call it off and I'll change the post- office. G. CLEVELAND. KALO, June 16.—C. L. Granger, Mayor and Rainmaker: My roof is leaking. Steer off my premises, or I will hold you responsible for all damages. A. TonNABo. CHICAGO, June 16.—Granger, Merritt & Haire, Managers of the Heavens and Earth —Gentlemen: Do you use pure science, or combine with the prayer test? Will you accept the chair of meteorology? W. H. HABPEB, Chicago University. OBHKOSH, June 16.—M. J. Haire, or the Water Wizard of Wahkonsa, Fort Dodge, Iowa: To decide a bet will you please answer whether your marvelous command of the elements is inherited from an Indian ancestry. It is clhimed here that your great grandfather's powder horn has been hanging on the moon for the last two months. ANXIOUS INQUIBEM. Allison for president on an American platform—a tariff and money system for Americans first. If the rain makers are attending to the sprinkling this season they are no Improvement on the old management. They have had the water pouring down on the great American desert, and the Pacific slope, where It is not needed, and have left the Mississippi valley dryer than the prohibitory law ever contemplated. The government should treat them as it does the Yellowstone park visitors who soap the geysers. Let nature take her course. The Dubuque Times is after "Jim" Blytheandthe "ringticket" as it calls them. Judge Utt writes with vigor on the matter. ... What the Register says of the state is true of Kossuth county: "Don't fret about Iowa, She will have greater aggregate crops than she had last year and her surplus products will sell for more money." In an interview published in London Thos. B. Reed endorses Senator Lodge's idea of making the tariff higher against countries refusing to recognize silver. There is no question that the United States could settle the money question in six months by this policy, and the attitude of two eastern men of the influence of Reed and Lodge points pretty strongly to the coming republican attitude. At Council Bluffs the court holds that a husband and wife cannot be guilty of IS TfilS NEIGHBORHOOD. The Knights of Pythias have a new lodge at Armstrong, Burt Monitor: It seems to be a fact that the Algotia band won't be invited up this way again. Ex-Congressman Kerr will give the oration at Armstrong on the Fourth. The Bancroft band furnishes music. Emmetsburg gets a military company. It will be Company K and with Company F will help keep this part of Iowa steady. M. E. Lumbar, who graduated at Iowa City last week, has been elected to the principalship of the schools at Nora Springs. The Whittemore band gives a big dance Friday evening. Whittemore has one of the finest halls for a dance there is anywhere. Spencer Reporter: Billy Ellis and Wallte Cruver rode their bicycles over to Algona Sunday, and came back on the excursion train. B. F. Robinson of Armstrong was elected vice president of the state bankers' association for the Tenth district at Des Moines last week. Attorney Morllng has stolen a march on his competitors i»y having a baby added to his family the pust week. He and Col. Sessions are up on the latest in politics. Chas. N. Hewitt's house burned last Thursday at Russell Switch, near Bode. The fire caught from''a pipe thrdligh the roof. Only the sewing machine and organ were saved. The celebration at LuVerne, two picnics near Burt at J. H. Grover's and E. Hulburt's, and the meeting at Robert Wright's in Sherman are all that are announced yet for Kossuth. The Webster City Journal is of the opinion that "if this ditching and tiling goes on much longer this country will soon be as dry as Dakota. We believe it is getting dryer every year and that the rain-fall is getting less." We do not vouch for this story which is going the rounds: A drunken man boarded the train at Sheldon the other day. The conductor asked: "Where are you going?" " I am going to h—1." "Give me $1.85 and I will take you to Emmetsburg," said the conductor. Russell Cook of Burt has a curious family relic in an eighteenth century clock that has been in the family over 100 years. The Monitor says: Mr. Cook has been offered $100 for it several times, but don't care to part company with the old "grandfather's clock." The Lu Verne News speaking of the graduating exercises says: Supt. Reed, in his pleasant and jocular manner, addressed the audience. His defense of the public system and progress in general was right to the point. He closed with some excellent advice to the class. Forest City Summit: The Maul and Wedge is what Bro. Wright of Charles City calls his new prohibition paper. Considering his hitherto intimate relations with a certain:wholesale liquor house, we are of the opinion that The Bung Driver would be a more appropriate name for the sheet. WffltD A MQPOtt MOT, J« & Bchmidt Did ft Land Office Business for a Piffle (Jrtef bttt Cfttne to Sheriff Lewis of Clay CoUnty Afltf Softie Crooks Here on Circus Day—JaS. Stewart in the Tolls; j. F. Schmidt will remember Rlhg- ling's circus day with regret. It was &n expensive day for him, and although it broke the drouth for everybody else it was the dryest day he has seen in months, lie is the present proprietor of the Alderman billiard halt and has probably been selling a " health" beer for some time on the sly. But for circus day he got in 20 cases, took it out of the rear end of the express office to avoid unnecessary publicity, and had just opened a rushing trade when Sheriff Samson appeared on the scene, captured 16 cases, and formed an eagerly watched procession with it to the jail, where it will lie till it is officially spilled on Mat's.lawn. Mr. Schmidt was then taken in custody himself and brought before 'Squire Clarke, who gave him the highest fine the law permits, $100 and costs, in all about $121, which was paid in cash. This case disposes of the joke that the Algona officials have been alert to capture illegal liquor sellers everywhere except in Algona, and the size of the fine, which is $25 more than was assessed against the Bancroft violator, is a healthy warning to all who think of following in Mr. Schmidt's footsteps. Mr. Schmidt was told when he bought the restaurant that he would be pulled on,the first sign of liquor selling. He now realizes what the warning was worth to him. After Two Crooks. / Sheriff Lewis of Clay county spent all day Friday attending the circus in Algona looking for two pickpockets, but did not capture them. It is reported that he had his eye on one of them but that he got under a tent and escaped. He said that at Spencer he captured 29 men, nine of them pickpockets, and that he proposed to have these two at Mason City if he failed here. This big haul there undoubtedly left Algona free, and no reports of losses of any kind have come in. No arrests were made, very few drunken men were about, and no crimes were committed. As the crowd was the biggest ever seen in Algona the record is a good one for our people. Too Free With Mortgaged Property. Some time ago Jas. Stewart of Ledyard was confined in jail for disposing of mortgaged property, but on settling up the claim was released. At the time he owed a number of debts which he agreed to fix, but going home he fixed" them so that he felt secure and left the country. He has been in foreign parts for some time, hut ventured back a short time ago, and then went back to Mason City, where Guy Taylor secured him last week. He is now in jail awaiting a hearing.

Wilson Gives Sonic Encourage* mentln That tine, but Thinks He Otiftlit to Have a Bonus. ' Tfifi tlPPER DES MoiNEs interviewed Mr. J. J. Wilson last week about his proposed mill at the Milwaukee depot and the bonus he asks from the farmers and citizens in Algona. He says if he builds he will put in^ good mill, but that he does not feel able to build without aid.

This being the fact, we are confronted with the question, what Is best to be done under the circumstances J The county Is entitled to have the privilege of a good flour mil, can hardly do without it, and how shall it be accomplished? Everyone who is familiar with the business at all knows that the flour mills of this county are not and have not been paying for the past few years, hence men are slow to put their money into the business, and after suffering so great a loss as I have,. I can't put the requisite amount of money on top of that loss to afford the farmers, and all the people in fact, such a mill as they are entitled to have, or would be pleased with. First, I have not the money it would require, and if I had a million I would not invest it in that branch of business." Discussing the bonus and his plans for the future he added: "It is well known that I have been doing business with these people for nearly 26 carrying, view of Mike Hubbard experienced an tin* pleasant sensation yesterday morning about 2 o'clock. Me had been clea&itig some vaults and had just got home with, his team, As he had finished unhar- nessing and was turning towards the- house he saw two men in the alley^run* ning from Mr. Johns' hotel.

Whether politics or the circus had most to do with it the county convention-was well attended Friday, but few townships being unrepresented. The only business was the selection of delegatea to the state, congressional, and judicial conventions, but this promised for a time to rival the street parade in interest, A motion was made by Senator Chubb to select one delegate from each of the 80 precincts and that a committee distribute them 10 to each convention. A substitute was offered by Geo. E. Boyle providing that S. S, Sessions and W. B. Quarton be allowed to select the state and judicial delegations. The debate turned partly on the merits of the motions and partly on parliamentary rules, but in the end the substitute was adopted by a small majority. A committee was appointed to select the congressional delegation.' The delegates are as follows: • State: B. W. Haggard, Geo. E. Boyle, J. W. Wadsworth, Geo. W. Hanna, Geo. E. Clarke, Z. S.

Many of our farmers say to me, we want you to rebuild the mill and we will aid so far as we can, each one doing so would amount to enough to warrant you in affording us the privilege of a first class mill. In response to the suggestion I have said yes, If you will make good the suggestion without delay, I will give you a mill you will all be proud of." Petitions have been sent out among the farmers and a committee has been appointed in town to see what the people are willing to do, and the question of a new mill will soon be decided. BUFFALO CENTER BUBNED. The Thriving: New City in Wlnne- bago County Nearly Cleaned Out Last Sunday Night.

It turned out in the morning that they had tried to break in at Mr. Johns' and had just been scared away. They opened the cellar door first and took out some fruit, etc., and ate it. Then they began to remove a pane of glass with a big chisel. Mr. Johns heard the n( ?, e , and thou &ht at first it was mice, which the girls had been complaining of for some days. But after a while he made up his mind that it could not be, and got up. When the burglar saw him he dropped his chisel and ran, and it was thus that they came on Mike and scared him out of a good night's sleep. Northwestern Safe Tapped'.At about the time the Johns house was raided the safe at the Northwestern depot was bored by burglars. They entered the ladles' reception room, opened the ticket window, breaking the glass in the operation, and bored a hole in the top of the safe, another near the lock, and had started another, but quit without finishing It.
