Women Work for almost nothing, and so it happens that Denmark furnishes the best cabbages it! the world delivered at li cents a head, and exports immense quantities to These wages make Monday by a decisive Vote the demo* Cratsofthe house of representatives decided to surf ender to the senate on the tariff bill. In spite of President Cleveland's protests, in spite of plat* form pledges, and in spite of the denunciation of Gorman, Brlce, and the other democratic high tariff senators, the free traders have succumbed. Coal, iron, and the other raw materials will be protected. A high tariff will go hack on sugar, which the republicans had made free. What this means Chairman Wilson fairly stated in his protest against surrender. He said that he — "Had been credibly informed and believed the sugar trust, anticipating the eu- actment of the senate sugar schedule, had ' purchased $112,000,000 worth of raw sugar. If this was true Its profits in advance of the enactment of the law would be at least a quarter of a million dollars." Bourke Cochran joined Wilson in his protest, but when the vote was taken it stood 180 to 21 in favor of giving up. The bill goes to President Cleveland. If he meant anything when he said that surrendering free iron and coal was treachery to democratic principles he will veto it. But it is unlikely that he meant what he said. He will sign the bill and the American people will have had three years of agitation, uncertainty, business depression, and financial disaster to get a tariff fully as protective as the McKinley law, with higher rates on "many articles, with sugar again made dear to the consumer, and with no serious attempt on the part of the democrats to carry out their plat- X3ATHOUICS OPPOSE THE SALOON The Catholic Total Abstinence union of America held a convention at St. Paul two weeks ago, which, following Monsignor Satolli's decision that saloon keepers must be excluded from Catholic societies, indicates that the church will make active war on the liquor traffic as now conducted. Archbishop Ireland said in his address: "America has set her lace against the saloon, the den of corrupt politics, and any church which will not come out for temperance is an excrescence upon the soil." Only one dissenting vote was cast against resolutions declaring that Satolli's decision will "crystallize the in- 'fluence of the church against the saloon, and will stamp this latter indelibly as the irreclaimable enemy of the church," and urging, "let saloon keepers be excluded from membership in all societies of Catholics; give no sup- port'to Catholic papers which allow liquor dealers to advertise in their columns." Cardinal Bam polio wrote from Rome "the Holy Father blesses your convention with his whole heart," and Satolli wrote: "My cardinal blessing upon the convention. I pray that the best fruits follow from it. The Total Abstinence society is the guardian of the homes of America. They who strive'for the mastery restrain themselves from all intoxicating drinks— they, and they who receive the incorruptible crown." These expressions from these sources Indicate that a new and very powerful influence will soon be brought to bear against the saloon system, WAGES IN EUROPE. Prof. O. H. Baker in his address before the teachers' institute on life in Denmark referred incidentally to the cheapness of labor in that country. In conversation he added details which are interesting. Amid the conflicting jBtatements made in political campaigns many have come to believe that, after all, wages are not really better in tbe United States than in Europe, that a day's wages will not buy more of the comforts of life. THE UPPER DBS MOJNES has published at various times yeports by those known to be dis* interested, Eugene Scbaffter of Eagle i has told our readers about the thifig like taitor'made clothing cheap. He wore a suit in Algona made in good style, costing him about $30, and he bought there a full dress suit of the best make for $46, both much cheaper than they could be had for here. But where hand labor does not enter in prices are high, Thus all cotton goods are higher there than in the United States. He wore a shirt that cost $1.60 there that can be bought here for $1 or less. He also wore shoes which cost $3 there that can be bought here for $2 or $2.60 at the outside. Butter is high there although Denmark is a dairy country, and meat is fully as costly as hero. So that the living of the common people is really more expensive if they have the same conveniences. Of course they do not have the same conveniences. The American laborer, male and female, has what would be luxuries there because he or she receives twice as much for the same work, measured in the commodities in general demand. Mr. Baker says that he can live in Indianola cheaper himself than he can in Copenhagen. If that is so then the average citizen of the United States is paying as little or less for what he consumes than the average foreigner. This report is corroborated by Frederick Field of Des Moines, who is just home from an extensive foreign trip. He says: " What the average foreign laborer has to eat for himself and family would be considered unwholesome and unsatisfactory to our laboring man. Aside from black bread and cheap wine they know little of the good things. In Naples, Rome, Florence, Milan and in Switzerland wages and values are about the same. In Paris and London both are a little higher. In Italy and Switzerland the maximum price of skilled labor is 10 francs, $2 in our money, but few, however, obtain that figure. Skilled wood carvers earn §1 to $1.40 per day; street car drivers and conductors 80 to 60 cents; policemen 40 cents; clerks 80 to 80 cents; hotel waiters 20 to 80 cents: street cleaners and common laborers 80 to 50 cents; railroad brakemen, conductors and station employes, all in uniform, earn from 50 cents to SI per day." Whatever may be thought of the tariff policy of the United States, there Written copy to a paper like the National Journalist " Juiilus on another duke in on* ne*t" and getting by return "Juntos or any Other duke is our next," we feel Warranted in appealing to Senator Funk if an outrage has not been committed. Lafe Young said that Lon Chapln's paper at the Spirit Lake editorial meeting was better than any paper on the same topic at the national editorial gathering. John T. Hancock, a brother of G. N, Hancock, who lived in Aigona at one time, and a prominent wholesale merchant of Dubuque, died suddenly Sunday of cholera morbus. _ The Capital says of the democratic endorsement of J. 0. Bakers ''The deffio> crats are perfectly careless about their nominees this year for the reason that they do not expect to be able to elect any of them." ^ Howard A. Burrell is probably the best-known editor of a weekly paper in Iowa. He edits the Press at. Washington, where he has been many years. Many of his articles have gone the rounds of the metropolitan papers and his reputation as a brilliant and original writer is more than state-wide. THE UPPER DBS MOINES gives its readers in this issue a few of his reflections on the editorial trip to Asbury Park. The American wheelmen broke the record In the relay race between Washington, D. C., and Denver. They covered 2,035 miles in six days, 10 hours, and 87 minutes. This was a gain of over 37 hours on the schedule time. tremendous, livfi creature. Hef breath is Wholesome climate.- The sun burns you, but the breeze cools you. It IB enough Just to exist, to breath, to eat and digest and loiter and dawdle, and watch the incomparable motions, and. colors of the Sea. But the beautiful siren runs shoreward and, like a boy Stubbing his toe, curls over in a green curve &ni dashes her white brains out, but every drop of water in that white boiling surge that races high up the beach spreading out a broad mantilla of lace, Is a subtle finger crooked and beckoning you to come to her embrace.

I rushed at the oncoming monster and just before it stubbed its toe and curled to break, dove thro' it, and felt like a demi-god. Beyond the first breaker all is clear sailing. The water is so dense and heavy with salt, it up-bears one, and swimming is easy, and floating on the back is splendid.

The Wisconsin state university is investigating Prof. Richard T. Ely to see if he is sound on political economy. State Superintendent Wells charges him with teaching socialism. Wells will gain temporary notoriety by tacking his name to Ely's. Gov. Jackson's speech on Flag Day is said by all to have been the best he has ever delivered. can be no question in the mind of any fair observer who will investigate the relative condition of the laboring classes here and in Europe, that at least twice the comforts of life are enjoyed here for the same labor that are anywhere else in the world. DOLMVER'S COMPETITOR. Elsewhere the proceedings of the democratic congressional convention which endorsed the populist candidate for congress are reported. Now it appears that they are repudiated by the democrats. The following despatch from Fort Dodge tells the story: " It was reported that the BoOne convention endorsed the populist candidate, but Lange, who was chairman of the convention, says it did not, and that it will not certify Baker's name to the secretary of state. It seems the convention was in a hurry to catch a train and left the hall before a vote was announced, and the delegates that remained nominated Lange. The latter says he will remain in the field." Louie Lange is editor of the Laurens paper in Pocahontas county, and an unquestioned democrat. If he is in the field and refuses as chairman of the congressional convention to certify to Baker's nomination, a pretty muddle will be on. ^condition of labor in Italy and central fjurope, and a year ago E. G. Larson of Fort Podge gave a letter to the |>ubUc covering bis experiences in the northern countries. Others well Iroown in this part of Iowa have added testimony, all of which corroborates $Jr, Baker in his statement that wages in Copenhagen are half or less than what they are here.

One of them had a flag, nothing but just the stars and stripes, tattered and weather worn and dirty, but to them the dearest thing still in all the world, dear to them as the memories of their mothers, dear to them as the presence of their wives or children. And they took that flag, and after a few words spoken in tears, each one in turn pressed it to his heart and kissed its folds. There they sat on the grass with cheeks wet with tears, and no one but they knew the tenderness and pathos of the occasion." _ The Etninetaburg Reporter is out in its new dress and new form. Bro. Mayno now has a chance to swing himself. Tbe Reporter is a welcome old-time exchange at this office. Major A, J.

In a big city I loaf in a cathedral more than any where else. 1 Blessings on a church that builds huge edifices. I don't care a snap what their brand of religion is, whether Catholic, Greek, Buddist, Mormon, Pagan—vast architecture is a boon to humanity; the dim religious light, the cloistered stillness, the loftiness of groined arch and sculptured ceiling, the prismatic glow of windows, the dawn-like coolness, are so soothing and grateful. Like the ocean, a vast cathedral gives you enough of a good thing. The old wash woman came at last from her tub and drudgery to look at the sea, that " bath of all the stars," and said it is good to see something you can see enough of. St. Patrick's occupies an entire block, and is open all day long. Beggar or king may freely enter and enjoy its vast calm. Yonder soars a fretted ceiling like a canopy of arched trees in a forest. The granite columns are tree trunks. The carving is mossy, lichened bark. The capitals are clustered leaves or fruits. A petrified forest. The eye would be lost in the dense, twilight of the nave were it not for the effulgent rose window and the glittering high altur at either end. And the transept is a by-path in these woods. Kneel if you like—you may feel like it. Sit down, lounge, dream, yea sleep in this solitude, take a reverie, float on a quiet tide of emotion. Mere bulk is grandeur, except in the human body. In man's works and nature's creations, massivoness and grandeur are twin. But how hateful imitation is! You often see churches, that cost $15,000 to $20,000, built Gothic; four or five rods of tumultuous, frantic, upheaved cathedral ceiling—how cheap and picayune it is I Trying to get effects, that only vastness can give, in a few rods of space, I know nothing more absurd and ridiculous than little monkey churches, trying to copy big cathedrals. Infinitely better to build plain and avoid splurge. Suppose a dwarf puts on the imperial regalia of Charlemagne and steps around grandly, trying to mimic that august personage. It is ludicrous, dwarf and small imitation churches are; both affront the taste and the imagination. A pint tin cup never tries to be the Atlantic ocean, if it has any sense. But all over the land are dwarf churches, posing as Gothics, and for all their ludicrous strutting they are nothing but architectural abortions, No more like cathedrals in the emotions they inspire than a bath tub is like the sea. I did not touch a line. " Sport" that takes life is an abomination. What right have I to fool a bass, feeding on mussels among the rocks seven fathoms down by dangling two hooks masked with a gob of clam, 'and hook him, and haul him up to strangle slowly on deck? No more right unless I need him for food, than an angel would have, supposing angels are in the firmament above me, to let down a line and hook and jerk me by the jaw into kingdom como. All these diversions of fishing and hunting for mere sport are wanton cruelty. The bass and black fish have as good right to life and the pursuit of happiness as I have, and I am a scoundrel, an unmitigated fraufi, and no Christian or humane person at all if I kill anything except in self-defense or from necessity of living. I didn't go out to fish, but for the ride, and the blood of not even a sucker or a clam is on my hands. Messefiget, Davenport, Iowa, publishes ah extended account of the event. The Blue Eat*th Post touches for this tall story: There was quite a curiosity at the Omaha depot In this city last Wednesday. Ataoflf the men sent here to repair the stock pens just north of the elevator there was one man who stood just seven feet and four inches ifi height. His name was Anderson and he was only 22 years old. Emtnetsburg Reporter: B. F. Grose of Algona was calling on Emmotsburg relatives and friends on Thursday. He is the present popular clerk of courts, and will undoubtedly be chosen his own successor at the coming- election.. Miss Lenette Wilson of Algrnhu spent several days of the past week in Em« metsburg visiting with her brother, H. J. Wilson. There is an interesting natural curi* osity on the premises of J. W. Mahony at Forest City, it consists of an oak tree out of the body of which there is growing a shrub of an entirely different species. The Summit says it is supposed that a seed which had fallen into a small opening in the oak took root and grew into the thrifty shrub now firmly engrafted upon the larger tree. Ltvermore Gazette: Mrs. Norton has been in Algona visiting her daughter, Mrs. Peterson There was a very pleasant party of young people at the Cornick home last Sunday evening in honor of Miss Gena Hanna of LuVerne, who was visiting there, and who returned to her home on Monday The Misses Mae Miller and Thresa Korman, two of Algona's popular ladies, were visiting the Misses Melavin one day last week, returning Saturday, their many friends hoping to see them again in the near future. An Iowa Falls special tells about the Chaffee brothers' new school: A deal has been consummated whereby the Chaffee brothers, formerly of the normal school of Algona, come into full control of Ellsworth college located at this place. The transfer also includes the private residence property of Professor C. W. Lyon near the college. Professor C. W. Lyon will go to Fort Dodge and accept a position as instructor in Tobin college o_f that place. Professor M. H. Lyon will enter the ministry and has had several calls to fill Congregational pulpits in this state. Professor Forest will remain in charge of the short-hand department of Ellsworth college.

Travel hangs up new pictures on the walls of memory, and as one looks at them, years after, the scenes they depict become vivid, and one knows that life is going on there just as when one observed it. Thus, at Asbury Park, people are strolling, bathing, promenading, thronging the auditoriums, listening to the music, to-day, precisely as when I was there, and 100 years hence the scene will not vary much in detail. The surf will still roll in. You hear and see it in your revery in a hot, dusty time, and the thought is as exhilarating as a bath. Travel, for a prepared mind, is the best possible educator. One picks up a thousand things that do not get into books or papers. One whets one's wits on other wits in talk. One sees one's country, and learns bow big and varied and opulent.it is, when one has threaded all parts and sections of it. It is very liberalizing, takes the conceit and provincialism out of a fellow, and tends to make him a cosmopolite if he is capable of becoming that. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

Wallace was at the house of W. J. Preston, a farmer of Chippewa county, five miles from this city, last night, taking care of' Mr. Preston's wife, who is seriously ill. About 2 o'clock Saturday morning Mrs. Wallace, who was asleep on the first floor, was awakened by a noise in the kitchen. She rose and opened the kitchen door to look out, when she was seized by two masked men, dragged into the yard, and beaten and kii ked till she was insensible. She recovered consciousness about 6 o'clock and managed to get into the house. Mr. Preston, who slept up stairs, had heard nothing, neither had his wife. Search revealed that all the money in the house, about $30, had been taken. Mrs. Wallace was brought to her home in this city, where she now lies in a critical condition. She can give no clew to the identity of her assailants. A LATER REPORT. EAU CLAIRE, Wis., Aug. 13.—Sheriff McKay of Chippewa Falls today served a warrant on Mrs. William Wallace at her home in this city. She is confined to her bed in consequence, it is supposed, of injuries sustained Saturday night at the farm of H, Preston, in Wheaten township, Chippewa county, when she claims she was beaten by masked men who robbed the house, The warrant charges her with larceny and was sworn out at Chippewa Falls by Preston, who claims Mrs. Wallace's story of the robbery is a pretense. She and her friends are indignant. She is under the care of a doctor. She is badly bruised. Sheriff McKay had instructions to leave her where she is if ho found her ill, and he did so. **** se§ is a vast e plen^r, to lO-Qk. at- Tbe beautiful tiger J|Pte> Morse for W8.780.

Remembering a Pioneer, To the Editor: On Thursday last, Aug. 9, a picnic was planned and a surprise given to Mrs. Jame.s L. Paine, the occasion being her seventieth birthday. About fifty of the old settlers and friends met at the very pleasant home of Mrs. Paine and spent the day with her, talking over early scenes and the many changes she had seen in this new country. She has resided here thirty- nine years, and she pointed out the spot where their first cabin stood. Mrs, Asa C, Call and herself being the only white women here in Algona the first year of her life here was one of constant anxiety and fear, the Indians being very numerous at that time. The next year other settlers began to arrive. A very beautiful dinner was served in the grove, to which all did ample justice. A handsome book was presented, also one in which those present wrote their names, ages, and native states. Many kind wishes were expressed, and all departed feeling the day had been very pleasantly spent. _ _ E. p, H. Base Bali at Burt.

Miller, The Milwaukee company has been increasing its force of men all along the line lately, and last week shipped 15- Italians to Algona to work under Jerre= Callahan. Jerre is not over-patient with men who do not do what they are told to, or Who cannot understand what is wanted of them, and before two days were up he had taken a deep dislike to the new crew. The matter culminated, when one of them either by accident or intention threw his shovel on the handcar in such a way as to knock Jerre's dinner pail off. War between the races was declared, and the result was that shortly after two sons of Italy were down town badly bruised, one of them with a cut in the arm, made it is said with a pickaxe, planning to have Callahan arrested. They finally withdrew complaint and explained their griev- - ance to the road master, who shipped them all east again, as they refused to be bossed by Jerre any longer. A spectator of part of the trouble was a strapping big employe who belonged to a squad that had been shipped before this on,e came, and who had returned to- get even with Callahan, who drew 1 a hatchet on him, he claimed. He talked considerably but did nothing; A new squad has now come and is at work. They are said to be expert track men and know what to do. If they know their business and do what. Jerre tells them they will get along all. right. But they will discover that he-, proposes to boss the job while he stays. Insubordination In the Banks. The Webster City military company went to Spencer by way of Algona, transferring from the Northwestern to the Milwaukee depot. On the road up some of the members had become very hilarious in consequence of aliberal supply of liquid refreshments, and when the company had reached the Milwaukee depot Capt. Hoffman ordered one of them to take his musket and patrol the track, presumably to sober up by walking. The private bluntly refused to obey, and Capt. Hoffman, after listening to some very unmilitary language for a superior officer, ordered him to take off his uniform. This also was refused in language more vigorous than respectful. With that a squad was delegated to strip off his military coat, which was done while he was being held on the ground. After he was relieved of his outfit he was ordered to leave, which he obeyed. In a short time, however, he came back in a maudlin condition and begged to be allowed to go on, and he was reinstated. The company had intended to march through town and join Company F at the foot of Thorington street, but as a result of the row did not leave the depot. Cement Walk Makers Skip. The two men claiming to come from Des Moines, who have been putting in cement walks about town, left Monday with several bills unpaid. One of them went Saturday north into Minnesota. The other hung about in the Stacy nursery Monday till he was able to board a freight south unobserved. They owed Geo. Turner $8.60 for labor, and the loss is serious to him. They also owed the John Paul company a few dollars for cement, and A. Wolf a small sum. for board. They laid considerable walk and probably left town $200 ahead. Constable Benjamin went with an attachment, but found nothing worth levying on. Started the Wrong Way, A young girl about 14 years of age, who proved to be a daughter of " Goldmine" Schmidt, who lived near Lu- Verne, got off at Algona last Wednesday and during the day gave birth to an illegitimate child. She told a story of seduction implicating a farmer near Lu Verne, but it all proved to be false as soon as she was identified. She has since implicated a boy living in Lu- Verne, Her relatives came and took her home, 0.
