FLAG UAY. Des Moines will greet the veterans fVtday« It Is predicted that more of them Will gather at the capltol than have been together since 18T4, when €0,000 passed in grand review. It wilt be the last great gathering. The removal of the battle flags to their final resting place will be attended by imposing ceremonies, and the capitol has been elaborately decorated for the. occasion. Mags and bunting fill the corridors. At the pinacle of the dome a huge red, white, and blue star bears '"towa* in the center. Although eight feet across it looks less than two, according to the report. The halls have been thrown open so that all may see the beautiful effects before the day and the crowd .arrives. It will be a memorable day for Iowa. will do mofe id make the summer sea* son enjoyable to all who come. Special trains furnished by the Milwaukee and Burlington roads took the editors about, the Manhattan beach steamer gave them a fide about Okoboji, the Manhattan toboggan behaved itself while the editors plunged oft into the water, and the Manhattan band furnished delightful music. the closing event was an elaborate banquet tendered by the business men at the Hotel Orleans. The courses Were as many and as Frenchy as in New York City, and the toasts were equally eloquent. Col. Clarke talked about the "Press and the Bar" very wittily, Al. Adams made one of his own and only responses, attd Lafe Young, who was up, told about " The Modest Candidate" in a manner to keep the tables rattling. Senator Funk was toastmaster and gave them all a fitting introduction. At a late hour the session ended, and all retired pleased more than ever with the "Saratoga of the West" and its hospitable citizens. Who, Out of ftll thia, Is to be the interpreter? Who, in these dollars and cents times, is there whose voice is strong enough to COI*. EIBOECK'S EXPOSE. As the democrats gathered in Des Moines they were greeted with a statement of the Des Moines postofflce scandal. Col. Elboeck had by some means secured the telegrams passing between the democratic managers and he gave enough of them to put the central committee, Congressman Hayes, and even Judge Kinne in a very unpleasant predicament. Hayes has answered only so far as to say that Col. Eiboeck is an •"ingrate, a scoundrel, and a dirty dog," while the others maintain discreet silence. Col. Eiboeck is a genial, confiding, open and above-board man, •who had the support of nearly everybody for the place. But Ed. Hunter can g«t more'Out of it for the cause, and the very men who encouraged Eiboeck that his appointment would be made were in the plot to defeat him. Col. Eiboeck says: " I will never again be an applicant for any public office. I would not have been this tkne but for the voluntary encouragement and offer of support from these gentlemen. Unfortunately I believed them. I thought that they desired that my more than.20.years of unrequited service for the party, and the sacrifice of what was to me a little fortune, and the sacrifice for the parly of'every dollar I earned during those years should be recognized and partly rewarded; 'but those honorable gentlemen representing the democratic party in high places evidently simply wanted, as one of them expressed limself, ' to fool the Dutchman' and then kick him aside." A SOLID DELEGATION. It IB now entirely possible that Iowa will elect eleven republicans to congress. The opposition will seriously contest Hager's seat with Gen. Weaver in the Ninth, and will try to defeats. M. Clark in the First, but the only reliable district they have is the Second, held by Hayes. The dissatisfaction with him is so great that the election of his opponent is considered possible even againet the 5,000 democratic majority. The republicans have chosen Geo. M. Curtis, a big lumber dealer of Clinton, who is said to stand yery high with all classes and to be a man of unblemished reputation. BECIPROC1TY IN AUSTRALIA. Col. Geo. W. Bell, now consul at Sydney, Australia, formerly known to Iowa politics by his "sleeping angel" speech, has been talking to the Australians about " Anglo Saxon unity," which is in effect what the republican administration got under headway by its reciprocity policy, soon to be abolished if the new tariff is ever adopted/ Col. Bell told his auditors that different countries produce articles needed by the others and instanced Australian paving woods, which he said should be in use in every American city. From Sydney only two steamers run to America. There should be, he said, a, vessel of 10,000 tons leaving every Monday, Anglo-Saxon reciprocity, he declared, would bind the world to peace. The Evening News in conclusion says the colonel was greeted with .«' tremendous applause and repeated cheers." The colonel is off where he -can view reciprocity with equable mental vision. He ought tocome home and pour a flood of his oratory in on the present congress. Frank G. Yeoman of Eagle Grovehas renounced democracy and is an mit-and-out populist. The Webster City Tribune says that he has shown signs of being unruly ever since the postofflce was distributed at the Grove. _ A relay bicycle race from Washington, D. C., to Denver, will cross Iowa Friday. The riders are stationed five miles apart and expect to deliver a message to Gov. Waite next Tuesday at noon. The race began Monday at noon. The riders go through Burlington, Oskaloosa, etc., to Council Bluffs. _ The town of Adair burned yesterday. Losses will aggregate $150,000. The West Bend Journal thinks the farmers don't attend to politics enough: " At the populist convention at Algona the other day, they had a hard time to find a. delegate to attend their congressional convention at Humboldt. Everybody was too busy harvesting. That is what created the populist doctrine. Farmers let the other fellows attend to their politics and then kicked because things did not go to suit them. If they ever expect to accomplish anything, they have 'got to get up and hustle." __ ' The Ruthven Free Press, referring to J. C. Baker for congress, says: " We think of him as Sam Jones says of all populists, ' he may get to heaven some time, but he-will not stop in Washington on his way.'" The Brooklyn Chronicle comes out from its recent fire better-looking than ever. It takes more than a fire to hurt a newspaper. AT SP1KIT LAKE. , The editors gathered with Senator Funk last week in response to his invitation extended at Carroll, and the "Upper Des Moines association added another to its list of successful meetings, The brethren were housed in the Hotel Orleans and the business sessions were held in the chapel near by, The chief feature of the programme was an exceedingly vigorous address by J, Fred. Meyers of the Penison Review on the "Ideal Editor." The next aneeting will be held at Nevada in January, and M. H. Richards of the Spencer News will preside.

The first district fair of Palo Alto, Clay, Emmet, and Dickinson counties, will be held at Ruthven, Sept. 10-14. The town is making big preparations, $3,000 are offered in premiums, and good races on a mile track will be a feature. Premium lists can be had of F. H, Glddings of Ruthven. The Egtherviile Republican says that J, C. Baker, the populist candidate against Dolliver, " used to be a farmer and n republican. He is now an insurance agent and a populist." A BYSTANDER'S NOTES. What an irresistible spirit that is which is ruling in the world today. Writhing and chafing if its course be impeded but for a day or two by some imprudent labor strike, In the past people allowed themselves to be discommoded for thirty long weary years at a time all for the sake of conscience, Today a twenty-four hours' interruption of the business of mosey getting vexes us exceedingly, Must such things be endured? Law and order suspended for twenty-four hours. How shocking! Tomorrow the irresistible spirit asserts itself again, the wheels begin to move, at first slowly, for there is an angry mpb threatening, whose stomachs haven't commenced to feel the gnawing of hunger yet; their cause however lost; the dey-booke, the ledgers, of commerce that were reluctantly put away yesterday $re opened again today; there is a computation made under the head of prpflt MM! loss* » nd the result—a point gained, toy qoBieience's silsej-ap; ifl the pj dynamics as opposed, to Jejjrnjdl-*-no 5 the »a- catch the ears of those howling dervishes in the Wheat pit, of convince thole self- made business men occupied in checking and balaticing that there is something wrong in the department of economics? Something Wrong in the department of economics? Nonsi nse I Have we not a low of contracts governing master and servant, employer ind employe, an eight-hour statute, an anti-sweating law? Is not the laborer protected in his right to quit work whenever he sees fit, and has not the employer the privilege of having men at the lowest market price of Wages? To be sure we are troubled now and then with strikes, but that is to be expected where large bodies of men are employed. At the same time it never takes long for tho militia to bong the Strikers to terms. And so the howling dervish in the wheat pit continues to howl, the banker foots up another balance. The preacher, returning from a conference barren of good results, With the millionaire manufacturer, repairs to his study to finish his interrupted sermon on the text, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven," Up • hill work here, surely, for your great interpreter. The irresistible spirit of the times is too much for him yet. His voice is again drowned in tho hum of busy industry. Fortunate enough if he secure -but so much as a corner in a newspaper and under the title of a " Bystander's Notes" hint in a calm and modest way at an interpretation. It were well for us, be we stock brokers, bankers, merchants, mechanics, or farmers, to con carefully and heed wisely what this particular Bystander has to soy. " The wage relation," he says, " Is simply a means of distributing the profits of production between the laborer and the capitalist. But like all forms of united interests it is yet defective in that it makes no provision for a fair adjustment of tho relative shares of labor amd capital in the results of their common venture. It regards the whole business as belonging to the capitalist and permits him to absorb as large a share of the profits as lie can secure when times are good and reduce the wages or stop work when times are bad. What is required, he adds wisely, is some method by which the relative shares of labor and capital in the profits <of business may be so adjusted as to give labor an assured part of the profits and not require it to bear an undue proportion of tho losses." Wise words, these of Mr. Bystander. They locate the disease, and while they do not prescribe a specific they at least point out the way to be taken in order to procure the best remedy. In tracing the history of the laws which concern employes, Bystander calls attention to the fact that "most-of these laws are centuries old. They were made especially to bind the employe. Most of them were made expressly for the employed. They are a product of the time when feudalism was slowly loosening its grip on the body of the servitor, who was at best and in the politest speech, a 'knave.' 'It established by and by the relation of master and servant. This was much better tbaii that of lord and villain, but it has long been fairly outgrown and nothing has come to take its place. 11 In brief we find ourselves, according to Bystander, with the important economic relation of our life practically unregulated by law. We have glided easily and somewhat gracefully into a new order of things. The mechanical genius of the age has provided for us a thousand conveniences and luxuries and we have adapted them to our means and ends as.unconoernedly v as though they had always been an indispensable part of our existence. la the manufacture and use of all these wondrous appliances the only question of a practical nature with which we have busied ourselves to any great extent has been in the matter of price. The quid pro quo has in no sense been' ignored or in any way escaped our most earnest consideration. With every reduction in the cost to ourselves of any one of these new comforts, we have rejoiced exceedingly, and pointed with pride to the legislators who have been able and wise enough to accomplish so much. But, people of the nineteenth century, fin do siecle people, be moderate in your extacies. One of these fine mornings you will find the sugar with which you have wont to sweeten your coffee turned to salt or something bitterer still. You think you have outlived the age of miracles; but this matter of regulating the price of sugar you are at present performing something of a miracle yet, in that you are making millionaires out of the manufacturer at the same time that you are reducing the price at. which the sugar they are manufacturing is to be sold to you. Is it not also a circumstance that borders on the miraculous that you should be able to reduce cost of transportation on your railroads, and at the same time increase the wealth and holding of the owners of these carrier companies? A man by the name of Jones calls your attention to the fact that he pays the freight. One of these days the neglected and forgotten Smith will suddenly rise up and inform you that he is the man who'has been paying all the freight. And who is this man that goes by tho name of Smith? ask you. Why, Smith is the fellow who has been switching In the yards at thirty dollars per month and supporting a family; he is the fellow who works on the section at a dollar and ten cents a day to buy among other things shoes for six or seven children, Smith is the fellow who strips every mowing and eaters a room in a sugar refinery where the temperature is so that BP human being has eye? been known to have remained in it more than thirty minutes at a time; Smith is the railroad engineer, whPse wages jare sugloieut perhaps, but whose ocQupfttipn is suphj* risky one that »Pt eve« a voracious life Insurance ppmpaoy wiH write hiw out a policy pn his life, To speak briefly Smith te on.epftb.ote who are demanding not'adlr yi»ipn,gf property fwd m equal 4Ss>trft«- which the relative shares of labor and capital in the profits of business may be so adjusted as to give labor an assured part of the profits and not require it to undue proportion of the losses."

Bancroft Register: Jos. Thompson, living three miles north of Algona, and well known to most of our people 'here, has secured through Hollpwny's agency the Dr. Howe residence in the south part of town, now occupied by W. W.

LuVerne News: Students who attended the summer session of the Northern Iowa Normal school at Algona speak very highly of the work done .Miss Rose; :Scott has decided that "There's no 'place like home," and instead of staying in Algona will go up twice a week Joiner vocal lessons.

THE OPENING LECTURE. The church was crowded last night for the formal opening. A violin and piano duet by Misses Maud and Kate Smith preceded the address of welcome by Will Galbralth, which was a model in every way and which was excellently responded to by Carrie Goodwin of Burt. It is rarely that better prepared or delivered addresses are heard anywhere. A song by the choir preceded the lecture by Prof. Baiter, which was a graphic and entertaining recital of his experiences as consul a't Copenhagen, together with a description of that famous cltv. He said that 'if he had waited for the inspiration of the occasion he should have talked on "Algona and Algonians Twenty Years Ago." But all who were curious to know about Denmark and its social and industrial life were given a rare treat in his discourse. THE KOSSUTH EVENING. Tomorrow evening will be devoted to the memory of Kossuth, Miss Wartman will furnish music, a recitation by Miss Ruth Reed, and Mr. McElroy's address will fitly commemorate the occasion. Mr. McElroy saw Kossuth and heard him several times on his memorable visit; and besides has spent much time in a study of his life and of the political significance of his trip to the United States. He will deliver an address of much historical value to the teachers, and of interest to all. CROMWELL AND CHARLES. Next Monday evening Rev. W. E. Davidson will graphically portray one of the great struggles for civil liberty, one of the most important in the development of our; American institutions. It will be a lecture of rare interest. THOSE IN ATTENDANCE. says: We were glad to shake the hand of our old friend and comrade, Mr. Horace Schenck of Kossuth county, even though he came as a delegate to the populist convention. "Uncle Hof* ace" was with the writer a member of Company F, Second Iowa cavalry, and we have always felt like permitting any Second Iowa man, excepting possibly Pete Hepburn, to have any kind of an opinion he chooses without taking him to task about it. The old soldier, who did his duty from 1861 to 1866, put in his time and risked his neck and heels that every man in the country might join the pops, the democrats, or the latter day saints if he wanted to: We may differ and doubt his judgment, hut we insist on his privilege.

Doesn't J-iike the Jleglster's Report of the Tentli District Caucus. J. J. Ryan is riled up about the report the State Register gave of the Tenth district democratic caucus, and if a man is entitled "io be riled up about anything political James would seem to have ample warrant. The Register said: "The democrats made another mistake in the Tenth district by not making up a. purse and getting Jimmy J. Ryan to come down. Ryan will be remembered as the man who buttoned his vest' around a Goliath, when he was running'for congress, but now he has shrunk until he goes in the featherweight class. It is thought that with his wonderful record as a financier in Tenth district postofflce matters and with the boodle he could have brought down if he has saved it, he would have been able to .materially assist the free silver fiends. Ryan has his friends, but ninety-nine democrats out of every hundred like to look the other way when any one comes up to them and mentions his name. He is what a Gypsy fortune-teller would 'call a * hoodoo. " Bro, Ryan says that report cost the other fellows more boodle than all he got out of.pOBtofflces, and that it is all the glory they can retain out of the caucus. Breen holds down the chairmanship of the congressional committee, and a Breen man is elected on the central committee from the Tenth district, and th? Buncombe faction have only flsherraap's. luck.

WESLEY, file Defendants Are Dismissed—Joltn Orovo Moves His State to Hoboft— Business Good at Wesley. WESLEY, Aug. 6.—There was a lawsuit in town Saturday in which Matt. Richardson of Algona and Robt. Brlck- ey and J. A. Johnson of Corwith were interested, It seems that Brickey and Johnson took a threshing machine engine that Mr. Richardson had a lien on for repairs, which he claimed they refused to settle for. He followed them to Wesley and had them arrested for larceny. The case was tried before 'Squire Kennedy, J. C. Raymond for the state and Attorney Wood of Corwith for the defense. After a careful examination of the witnesses the accused parties were discharged, the evidence not being sufficient to.hold them. In spite of the dry weather Wesley still lives and.moves, and our business men are doing as much trade as ever and are not discouraged, either. The threshing of grain has begun, and oats t wheat, and barley are turning out good and of number one quality. A little rain now and our corn crop would be up to the average. Miss Knudson and Miss Evenson of Calendar, Iowa, are here visiting the family of R. B. Hopkins. , Guy M. Butts has been on the sick list for the past week, but is now some better. Mrs. Nelson of Rudd is here this week visiting her brothers, Elmer and Walter Thomas. Edgar Butler of Algona was doing business in this part of the county last Friday. John Grove expects to move his stock of general merchandise from here to Hobart in a few days. We are sorry he has concluded to leave here. Elder Black will hold his fourth quarterly meeting here next Sunday. He will preach in the evening. Quarterly conference will be held Monday, at 8 a. m. J. W. Hay ward of Vinton was here last week and sold his farm, the west half of Sec. 2, Prairie township, for $12,000. This closes out all his land interest in this part of the county. Our teachers are attending the institute this week. Several of them took the train for Algona Monday morning. Nate Studer was visiting friends in Milwaukee for a few days, but came home on account of sickness of one of his children. The child was taken with brain fever and derangement of the bowels, and died the morning of the 7th. The funeral occurs Wednesday, and the remains < will be deposited in the family burying ground in .Prairie township. It was their youngest child, a little over 18 months old. Mrs. E. E. Thomas, who has heen visiting in the east, returned- Tuesday morning. ! S. E.

Jackson Issues a Proclamation—Mayor Call Gives Notice In Aleona. In view of the disastrous fires last week in Belle Plaine, Brooklyn, Eagle Grove, Marion and Boone, Gov. Jackson issued a proclamation Saturday. In it he says: I would suggest to the people of the state that extraordinary precaution be taken by all to guard against this danger. Let the mayors of cities and towns have all' appliances for extinguishing fires thoroughly tested and put" in readiness at once. Let all inflammable garbage be removed from the streets and alleys; boxes and empty oil barrels moved to a safe distance, Let additional fire patrols be established, .and in short let every good citizen exercise unusual precaution against this dreaded danger, and in every way seek to reduce the liabilities of disasters of this kind to the very minimum. MAYOR CALL'S NOTICE. All persons are cautioned, under penalty of arrest, to build no fires in the streets alleys or elsewhere in the open air, within the corporate limits of Aigona; nor to discharge fire arms, fire crackers, or other explosives; por to light matches or throw away cigar stubs in any streets or alleys; and the marshal, night watchman, or any other responsible citizen is authorized to arrest persons guilty of doing any of the above acts.
