NO GIVERS, NO BEGGARS. Jahu ; DeWitt Miller, in his lectur to Algona recently, laid emphasis o therstatement that it is wrong to giv to mendicants, because of the encour agement it offers them to follow beg gi-ng as. a means of livelihood. He ha im -mind, and under discussion at th time .the common weal movement, whic' has-shown itself to be the greatest com Wired (begging aggregation that thi country'has ever seen. Mr. Miller' proposition is based on common sens and .possesses much in tbe way of force fui argument. He might, however have,gone much further and still hav remained In touch with the publi thought. iPeople who have fed tramp enough BO that tbe matter has begu • to assume a serious aspect with them are beginning to ask themselves wheth er they have done right all this time and the universal conclusion seems t be that they have not. It is only £ question .of .time when this though will be cam-led to a logical conclusion It may work hardship in some cases but sooner .or later it will be demon strated to uncertainty that if there wen no givers .there would be no beggars. COXES' FOR, CONGRESS. Recent developments show that wben Coxey organized his commonweal arm; last winter, and announced the purpos. of his proposed march to Washington his whole scheme was fraught with jplans more deeply laid than appeared on the surface, So far as the public was informed his demonstration was in the interest.of the working people, pure and simple. He would make such a showing as would influence congress In the enactment of laws which would bring relief to the proletariat and general prosperity to the nation, while the oligarchy and the capitalistic crowd would be so effectually turmed down as not to be again heard of. Coxey may be a crank, but he Is not one of tbe dangerous kind. His scheme was the result of more or less deliberation, He knew " where he was at" jpost of the time. He announced plans to be carried out after be should reach Washington which he knew would be frustrated. That was precisely what he wanted. Tbe things happened that Jje hoped would happen. At the proper time, so far as his interests were iponcerned, he was arrested, and then "game his opportunity to pose as a. jnartyr.

'..._...... , THE STRIKE, At the present writing (Tuesday) all of the twenty-one roads centering in Chicago are practically tied up as a result of the strike that is on. Some of the roads ,are succeeding, with the greatest difficulty, in getting pat dally made-up trains out of the city. Busi* ness at the Union Stock yards Is at a standstill, and no stock of any char* acter is being shipped either into or out of them. Hundreds of cars of perlshiblo freight are standing on the tracks, and the loss from this source alone will reach millions of dollars. President Debs of the American Railway union is ordering strikes in every direction, and his orders are being generally obeyed. The situation throughout the west is perceptibly Worse, and tie-ups ia *,M the great railroad centers, as well as at mimor points, are the rule rather than the exception. In most cases the mail trains have been permitted by the strikers to run, but all Pullman >cars are left behind either as tbe result of .choice by the railway company or because the strikers seize the train and act them out. In Chicago it is announced that all classes of labor unions will join in the strike within a day or two, as they almost universally express sympathy with the striking railroad men, and are determined to lend .their aid in fighting the thing to a finish with the railroad companies. Tbe situation at this time its assuming a most serious aspect. 'The railroad companies announce that they will stand firm and eventually win the day, while the strikers appear equally confident of success in the near future. No strike of similar magnitude has been seen in this country for a long time, if ever before. Violence is being resorted to by the strikers in some instances, and the companies are de manding either state or federal protection. "Unless a settlement between the warring factions is reached very soon it is difficult to see how bloodshed can be averted. As to the merits of the case 'opinions vary. We give in another 'column an article from the Chicago Tritrane which it is believed fairly expresses the situation as it existed three or lour days ago. The situation is nodoubtchanged by this time, but the causes which led up to the strike are the same as before. What will be the outcome of this labor uprising no man can now foretell. The most that we now know is that the situation is critical and likely to grow worse. fignt Into the convention, And by ft method which is characterized ivs ihe rankest kind of fraud—that Of the admission by President 'jfrldcy of 91 votes to be caiit by the college league, tot which there were no credentials—Cleveland was selected ns the place. (There is much indignation at the method by Which Cleveland Won the prize, and Mr. Byers, Iowa chairman, Snys that if this thing is permitted to Stand the " republican national league ia deader than any stinking mackerel in the seas." What can with more certainty place the railroads eventually in the bands io'f the government than the strikes whicfh have crippled and paralyzed the commercial world during the past few montfosS There have always existed more or less plausible arguments against government control, but the time seems not far distant when the people, who have some rights in these matters, will demand a system of management that will insure the running of trains on schedule time, whether any one class of citizens says they shall or not. We see no strikes in the mail service, and that fact is a strong argument in favor of the government assuming control of the railroads. One proposition is always safe: Men may quit work if they choose, but they have no right to interfere with those who do want to work. The reverse of this is simply anarchy in a mild form, "Elsewhere in this issue will be found tbo announcement of"—that is the stereotyped phrase we find in nearly every exchange that comes to our table these days, and it means that even the scorching days of July have no deleterious effects on the festive candidate for office.

QUABTON FOB Ruthven Free Press: Mr. Quarton of Algona got the judicial nomination at Spirit Lake this week. He will make an acceptable candidate. Esthorville Republican: Mr. Quarton is an able young lawyer, with a private record beyond reproach. We believe ho will grow in strength and usefulness on the bench and prove a worthy successor of Judge Carr. Spencer Reporter: The republican judicial convention held at Spirit Lake Tuesday was a spirited but good-natured contest among republicans and resulted in the selection of a very good man and lawyer for the office of judge. W. B. Quarton of Algona was nominated on the 70th ballot, and will receive the full vote of his party at the polls.' West Bend Journal: Mr. Quarton is a young man of fine attainments and has practiced law in Algona for about 12 years. Members of the bar in that city speak very highly of him. Prom a personal acquaintance we know him to be a man of high character and good judgment. The district is to be congratulated on having so able a successor to Judge Carr. Emmetsburg Reporter: While we were for the nomination of Mr. Marling, believing that he would have made an eminent and impartial judge, we certainly have no objection to Mr, Quarton and shall be pleased to support his candidacy. He is a young lawyer of ability and has rapidly forged to the front during the past few years, He is a close student and gives every question due consideration before he decides it. Webster City Tribune: Our young friend, W. B. Quarton of Algona, one of the brightest and best young attorneys in northwestern Iowa, will please accept the Tribune's congratulations on his nomination to the district judgeship, in the Fourteenth district, at the republican convention at. Spirit Lake last Tuesday. This deserved promotion will be highly gratifying to the staunch young republican friends all over the state. Spirit Lake Beacon: Judge W. B. Quarton that is to be, if he lives, is yet a comparatively yoTjng man. He is a graduate of the law department of the state university, and has been in practice at Algona for some 13 years. In his profession he has made a manly and winning fight. The friendless boy soon became one of the most successful lawyers in his county by dint of ability, character and determination. He is a man of clean life and correct ideals. His square shoulders carry a good head, and his impulses are the product of a kindly disposition.

The liquor dealers of Emmetsburg are making hard efforts to get down to business under the new law. T. H. Taylor and others claim they will soon have tbe required number of names, says the Democrat. Judge Carr intends moving his family to Des Moines the latter part of July. He will bold a few terms of court in the district during the fall, but, in doing this, it is not necessary for him to remain in the district. The Tribune thinks that Eramets- burg no doubt has had all tbe circus she cares to revel in for some time.

At Emmetsburg a citizen was offered $5.50 in silver for a $5 bill by one of the Howe & Gushing show men. The man asked the marshal what he thought of the proposition.

Referring to the big Masonic gathering last week Bro. Mayne says in the Reporter: Algona has always been noted for her generous hospitality and in Tuesday's generous welcome she again demonstrated her ability to entertain and that in a royal manner. The visiting Masons were met at tbe depots with carriages and taken to the Masonic hall, which was the place designated for the procession to form. At 11 o'clock they filed out of the hall and went east on State street one block and then doubled back and proceeded to the opera house, where a literary feast had been prepared for them. Spencer Reporter: The Masonic bretheren of Spencer determined by a vote some time since to accept the invitation of the Algona people to join them in suitably celebrating their great annual festival St. John's day. Accordingly sixty-four persons left on the morning train, including several ladies of the Eastern Star chapter, They had -a most enjoyable time at Algona, being entertained with good speeches, music and carriage riding until evening, when they enjoyed a grand banquet and a general good time which was prolonged well into the night, The party arrived safe in Spencer feeling that Algona is a good place to go on such an occasion, Speaking of the damage done by the storm last week the Eagle Grove Gazette says: The Catholic church was the largest church structure in town, and it was completely crushed in, making a total wreck of this valuable edifice. One statue was protected by falling timbers, and only a flower vase broken from its hand was destroyed; all other statues in the church, were demolished. Almost everything ' in the saoistry has been sayed, that room being Httle disturbed, The large organ in tbe church gallery was brokep into bits; and i W lop* seeWoa p.f six feet wide &ide\yajk was carrM from frpjit of the oMrob, to Mr, loyi^'e ard JQO fee.) f way, E.ariy ijflxJd m,o,rjo. g kpdF$l& -,9i P£°pte £»$teed to view l&p wjraok. and m\y So much interest is just now centered in the great Pullman strike, by which twenty-one ronds uuuluring at Chicago are more or less affected, and which, as a matter of Fact, is felt all over the United State*, that we reprpduce, from the Chica ro Tribune, a statement of the situation and the trouble which Ic.d up to it. It seems to us the most impartial of any we have seen. The Tribune says: The Pullman strikers claim that their wages were cut down last fall more than was necessary. They asked for a restoration to the former scale of compensation. They wanted the same number of dollars for a stated number of hours' work as they received a year ago. The Pullman officials refused to accede to this demand. They said they could not afford to pay the wages asked and contended that owing to a general decline in prices of almost everything the workers buy with their wages the dollar has a greater purchasing power than it had in the early months of last year. Hence, they said, the workers really were demanding a greater rate of compensation than before as measured by tbe things which the wages of labor will buy. Debs and Howard in behalf of the men would not admit this, and as proof oi the injustice of the claim they alleged that the company has not reduced its rent for the cottages they occupy at Pullman. The workers urged that if the dollar is worth more to buy clothing and groceries than before the panic it also should be worth more to pay house rent. The American Railway union took up the matter and lasl Friday asked the Pullman officials if they would consent to arbitrate the points in dispute. Vice-Presidenl Wickes would not consent, his position being-that "the company has nothing to arbitrate." Thereupon Debs anc Howard, chiefs of the American Railway union, resolved to boycott all the Pullman sleepers on all the railroads in the United States. By that ii mtant that the railroad lines shoulc all be tied up and not a wheel be allowed to revolve on any of them unless they sidetracked the Pullman sleepers and refused to haul them—un til the Pullman company was forced to arbitrate the differences with its car constructing workmen. On the side of the company it is stated that just previous to the panii tbe working force embraced abou 1.000 employed on car repairing and 4,000 on new construction for variou roads. When the panic came thi railroad companies generally canceled their contracts for new cars, and i became a Question whether to let the 4,000 men go or employ them at such wages as could be afforded on othei contracts to be taken at reduced prices The men were consulted, and agreed to that for about six months. At the expiration of that time the more intelligent of the number were called in and informed that in order to pai the reduced wages work had been taken so low that it yielded no profit but a loss of $12 per car, and that i seemed impossible to make better terms for contracts to be filled during the ensuing few months, and that a present contracts would only last sixty days. Higher wages would be pai( willingly if higher prices for car build ing could be obtained. Otherwise not unless the company operated its works at a positive loss. The men seemed willing to accept the situation. Bu at a meeting of walking delegates held one night in Kensington or somewhere in the vicinity, a resolution was passec to order a strike unless the old gooc times wages were paid. To this ultimate demand of the men it was replied by the company, in effect " if that is your determination we wil " close the shops and wait either unti -" we can obtain higher prices for cat "building or the workers are willing "to accept the offered wages." The men went out and have not returnee to work. The present position is thus stated by one who is connected with the company; "The American Railway union comes in with a demand foi arbitration, anC to make us do what' To compel us to pay more wages foi the construction of, new cars than we can get for the work? To make us pay $1,000 in wages when we only have $900 or $950 left for that purpose after paying for material and meeting othei inevitable expenditures? No arbi trators could force us to hire men at i loss, If by arbitration we were ordered to pay more than we coulc afford to pay on new construction we should have to stop on that kind o work and let the 4,000 men hunt foi jobs elsewhere. We should make no more new cars till there was an improvement in the situation. We might have to pay the arbitrated wages to a few men working on repairs of our own cars. That is a'll arbitration coulc amount to in our case, and it would benefit the men in whose alleged interest it is proposed. We are willing, without arbitration, to pay as high wages as we can afford, and to advance tbe scale when times improve and conditions permit us to do so. If the men would accept that there need have been no trouble. Jf not, we cannot employ tbew. JJence there is nothing to arbitrate. 1 ' The Tribune has been at spnse pains to ascertain the principal facts in the situation an4 gives tbeffl as above, with tbe addition that tbe number of renters of cottages at ruUnjan is not equal to ,,irteF tf the Men enjpjpyecj tffjtbJapft&SfieJiJa. Jfifej - mppuy without loss to its own treasury or making an assessment oft the stock* holders the company will not build new cars and will not have afly of that tind of work to give out or pay wages or it till times improve. There is no getting'aroubd the bald proposition hat neither by arbitration or otherwise can a man or a company be forced ,o hire workers and keep them .em* iloyed at wages which he cannot afford o pay, Even if such a state of things could bo enforced by the strikers it would last but a little while in the ;reat majority of cases, as the wage und of the employer would soon be exhausted. Perhaps it would be worth the while of the leaders of the American Railway union to ask them* selves If they are quite sure they can ofce the company to pay more wages than it can afford, and unless sure of ,his If their interposition is not work* ng a grievous wrong to the strikers as well as to the public. COUNTY BOABD WORK, Grrules and. Bridges Receive Chief Attention—County Funds Are All RiKlit—Uoutine Report. The county supervisors completed ihe work of the adjourned June session ast week Tuesday. Besides auditing- Dills on the various funds, the work was mainly devoted to the location of lighways and the ordering of a few Dridges.

Messrs. Nycum and Smith, committee to settle with the county officers, made their report, which showed everything to be -in proper shape, and their report was adopted. The poll tax of Goo. Jarvis was refunded by reason of his inability to pay. The consent highway asked for by J. L. Hastings and others was ordered laid, beginning at the southeast corner of Sec. 5—99, 29, running east to the highway on south line of Sec. 4—99, 28.

The board was satisfied from the evidence offered that the road was once laid, and this is why theif- action in the matter. Disastrous to .EinmetsburK. Palo Alto Tribune: The American Investment company has passed into the hands of a receiver. This disastrous ending was feared ever since the rumor of its insolvency was reported, on our streets. This announcement means much that is serious to Emmetsburg. It undoubtedly means the close ending of the most gigantic enterprise that Emmetsburg ever boasted of, OP will be able to boast of for some time to come. It means a contraction of oup business interests, and the loss to out- town of some of its best citizens. Jts wreck was brought about through jealousies of some outside members of the company whom the management had deposed. Its failure consequently reflects no discredit on the man who- conducted it, and who we understand has given it years of hard woirk, backed: up by every dollar he owned,, to further- this enterprise, which was the sole object of his undivided attention. We. do not intend to curry favor from any^one unjustly, but we do say it, and say- it candidly, that Emmetsburg is as-, much indebted to Ormsby Brothers' enterprise and business tact as to any institution of busines& that has ever- existed here, And Susan B, Still 14fvos.
