At Washington Court House, Ohio, last week, a negro named Dolby was convicted of rape and sentenced to im prisonment for 20 years. Rumors o lynching were so frequent that the judge hastened matters as much as possible in the hope of averting trouble, An indignant community, however, sought to defeat the ends of justice by taking the law into its own hands, and iormed a mob and stormed the jai where the wretch was confined, bent upon hanging him to the first tree "The militia was called out, and after enduring the taunts and jeers of the mob for some time, and after some o: the soldiers had received severe in juries from stones thrown by it, were compelled to fire. . As a result three citizens were killed and several injured No sorrow would have been felt it the mob had succeeded in its plan of hang ing Dolby; but this is not saying tha the motives which prompted the mob were right, nor will there be any con siderable sympathy manifest for those who suffered as a result of their own lawless acts. The firing on the mob was resorted to only as a last measure for the preservation of law and order and however much their deaths may be deplored, the action of the militia under command of Col. Colt will be ap plauded. It was one of those cases -which demanded the vigorous treatment it received. The time for anarchy and mob rule has passed in '..his country, and the sooner this faci becomes thoroughly understood the safer will be the homes and property of all good citizens. THE IOWA CUCKOOS. Mark M. Pomeroy has been a democrat since there was a party by thai name—if be is old enough for tha] statement to be consistent. He is in New York now, publishing a paper that is called Advance Thought. He .has fluctuated a good deal since we first knew him in the old Horicon (Wis.) Argus, where he published one of the red-hottest local democratic papers of that state. He was a young man then, but even at that time he was known as a man who came pretty near saying just what he thought about current events, and his style was always pungent. His greatest success was made at La Crosse, where for some years he owned and published the Democrat, His fortunes have varied a good deal since those days, having been successively in Denver, Chicago, and New York. And while he still continues his adherence to democratic principles, his democracy is of a sort peculiar to himself. He likes democracy when it pleases him to do so, and is never sparing of his criticism when ' in his judgment the party departs from the line of exactitude. • In a late issue of his paper he discusses the position of the Iowa democrats, saying among oth- •er thipgs; *'The democrats of Iowa are a funny lot of good fellows with their eyes not yet open, That is, the democrats in Iowa who are fed by the hand of the president or who • form the office-holding brigade of that state, Cleveland and his great Wisconsin Vflrnisher, whose name is Vilas, where the name of every delegate and the size of his hump was known before the convention assembled 1 . More than half the convention, enough to solidly control its utterances, were office holders, and what they said was written in Washington, accepted and spread , upon the fences as voices from the stars. .JjJtK-Governor Boies said that the crisis Wttich so long had been coming to entertain tfoe democratic party had come by a palpa- bje majority. Bully for Boies and all other "fcpys, JJe said it would save time, even if i it did not help the landlords and the saloon , Jjeepers, to nominate by acclamation and yusU the growler which was so near empty, ' ,3%ey acclamated and thus in fifteen min- f vlt8S nominated.

Storey a pain la the back to see what the once powerful Times has come to since the old man let loose of the reins. Congressman Dolliver spoke at Emmetsburg last week Monday to a large audience. A democratic editor at Carroll, after listening to Dolliver, reached the conclusion that "he is not speaking for blood, but for votes." It would be interesting to know what Candidate Baker thinks about it by this time. The Spencer News prints a lengthy ordinance which is for the purpose of " taxing and regulating the keeping of dogs" which, if paid for at legal rates, will cost more than all the dogs In Spencer are worth. A big brewery to cost$350,000 is contracted for at Dubuque, and its erection will begin soon. L. S. Merchant, editor of the Cedar Rapids Republican, died suddenly at his homo last Thursday morning, of brain fever. He has for some years been a prominent figure in the politics of the state, and was making of othe Republican one of Iowa's best daily papers. He was state printer from 1884 to 1888, and held the office of state oil inspector at the time of his death. Refering to Judge Quartan's first term of court at Spirit Lake the Beacon says: The appointment of W. B. Quarton as the successor of Judge Carr on the district bench took effect last Saturday. On Monday Judge Quarton opened court in this county, and proceeded as if to the manner born. Judge Carr also began his judicial career in this county early in 1887. Geo. E. Roberts of Fort Dodge has changed his weekly Messenger to a semiweekly. The semi-weekly in Iowa has not been especially popular, and in few if any cases has it proved a paying speculation from a financial point of view. Mr. Roberts notes this fact, but says that he is acting on the theory that conditions have changed. The Messenger is one of the rattling good papers of Iowa of which we never get too much. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. John Falk has been appointed postmaster at Buffalo Fork in place of T. A. Butterfleld, resigned. The Bancroft Register notes the death of Mrs. Andrew Johnson, seven miles north of that place; also Mrs. E. G. Carr of Ramsay. The Recorder says there are 70 men in Franklin county who each own over 500 acres of laud in the county, nine of whom own 30,000 acres. Livermore Gazette: B. G. Hough and wife of Englewood, 111., surprised their relatives here by a visit last Friday, and will remain a week or two. To the cyclone committee in Britt, where the storm was unusually severe, over $1,600 in cash has been contributed, and hundreds of dollars in food and clothing. At Wesley last week Mayor Barrett's sidewalk was torn up and taken away. The Reporter says he found it hidden on the top of one of Mr. Kunz' large hay stacks. The West Bend Journal tells us that A. Younie started for California Sunday evening. He expects to spend most of the winter there if the country and climate agree with him. The sale of the M, & St, L. railroad took place at Minneapolis last week, The stockholders of the road bid it in, depositing with the sheriff of Hennepin lounty the sum of $3,010,000 in gold, The Whittemore Champion says that a good many who were in the cyclone district are erecting new barns and on a much larger scale. Messrs. Higgins, Erue, Bixby, Clarke, and Roupe are of the number. Whittemore is making a move for ilty water works. The first thing in H-der will be to secure a good well, [f they want some pointers on the water works question they can get Miern of the Algona city council, J.

Ed. Andrews, the well-known comedian of the Andrews Opera company, was recently married to Miss Caddie ~iee of Mankato, Minn. Nan Wilkinson, his first wife, was killed in a Northern Pacific wreck some years ago, Erametsburg Reporter: Rev. H. B. 3utler of Algona called on friends in •his city between trains, Wednesday.

Terrence McDonnell died at Emmetsburg last week. He baa been a character in the history of that town. He was at one time sheriff of Palo Alto county, and has been in business in Emraetsburg most of the. time since his coming there in 18?1. He left a property estimated at about $40,000, A marriage last Week Which escaped bur notice is thus spoken of by the Monitor at Burt, where the parties will reside: .Mr, Chas* Schryver and Miss Rose Wright were joined tri marriage oh Tuesday of this Week. The event took place at 3 in the afternoon in the Congregational parsonage in Algona. They will ent»r upon the duties of housekeeping immediately, Mr. Schryver's house near the church being vacated just in time. Both are Wei'known and have hosts of friends who join with the Monitor in wishing them all the happiness possible. Al. Adams says of the death oi Horace Schenck: We are sorry to note tbe passing awny of our old friend, Horace Schenok of Kossuth county last week, He had some rough experience in the cyclone that passed over his son's farm, destroying the house and burying-the old gentleman in the ruins. Although he had some ribs broken and was badly shook up he was getting along very well and was fully expected to recover. He, however, took a sudden back-set and died in a few moments, probably from some disease of the heart. Our acquaintance with him was as a comrade and member of the same company and regiment during the war. Since then we have continued the acquaintance. May he rest in peace. Aff IMPORTANT DECISION. Change of Name of the Unitarian Church— The Society a Unit for the New Appellation. To the Editor: In the religious world perhaps nothing of greater import has transpired recently than the important decision reached by the body of Unitarians assembled in their annual national conference in Saratoga in the month of September. It had been expected there would be discussion at this meeting and it would seem all went prepared for it; perhaps but few were prepared for the harmonious result which was so easily attained. For three years it has been a mooted question with a part of the Unitarian body whether it would not be the part of wisdom to discard the Christian name in the Unitarian statement of faith. Some of the more radical members believed, and expressed their belief freely, that it would be better to discard the Christian name and to substitute there- for the formula " truth, righteousness, and love." This it was believed would be more inclusive, more comprehensive and universal in its reach. Those who cherished this opinion asked that the constitution of the National Unitarian association be changed so as to conform to this later and as it was supposed better statement of belief. Six months before the meeting of the national conference, notice had been given that the subject of revision would be considered and that probably some action would be taken. In the meantime, it being a subject which seemed to grow in importance as the time approached for final action, many were led to state more positively than they had ever before done, why they thought it was important to cherish and adhere to the Christian name. Among those prominent on this side were Dr. James Martinau, Rev. Stopford Brooke, and a large number of those who might be termed pioneers in Unitarianism. Dr. Edward Everett Hale was the presiding 1 officer. When in the great ball room" of the United States hotel 2,000 persons had assembled to give their voice in an informal way upon one side or the other, Dr. Hale read in clear tones the following statement of belief, which had been prepared, The revised article reads: "The conference of Unitarian and other Christian churches was formed in the year 1850, with the purpose of strengthening the churches and societies wlich should unite in it for more and bettor work for the Kingdom of God, These chui'ches accept the i-eligion of Jesus, hold ing in accordance with his teaching, that practical religion is summed up in love to God and love to man. The conference recognized the fact that its constituency is Congregational in tradition and policy. Therefore it declares that nothing in this constitution is to be construed as an authoritative test, and wo cordially invite to our working fellowship any who, while differing from us in belief, are in general sympathy with our spirit and our practical aims. " Article 1. The churches and other organizations here represented unite themselves in a common body to be known as the National Conference of Unitarian and Other Christian churches," Strange to say without. one dissenting voice, without any. bickering or discussion, such was the feeling and spirit of the place the statement was received with the unanimous accord of the vast assembly, and cheers and shouts went up in honor of the peaceful and glorious victory, Dr. Hale said in regard to this happy result: " When I say that this more than . harmonious decision was the result of a discussion from which many had prophesied the division of the body, you will undei 1 ' stand how important it is to us." And now, with this Christian banner unfurled to the breeze, and with the renewed inspiration and zeal of the professed disciples of the one divine master, who will not see a fairer future for Unitarianism than could have been predicted had any other result been reached at the meeting of the national conference? With one aim and purpose, one watchword, and one divine leader, there can be'but the one greatly to be desired result for Unttarianism, and that is, the building up of righteousness in tbe world, the breaking dpwn, of barriers that divide and separate Christians, and the development of a true and ennobling spirituality in all "-"—'•- churches, o, A. i. that it weans flour, Ma4e «t Al* $9 fee ag iOSSUTtt NEEDS NO AID, Its Vifctims of thfe Cyclone A*e Fully Pi-otided FOF, 1ft Sfcite of Con flicting An Item in the Register Which Might Ptove Misleading Were the Facts Not Known. Inhere must be a good deal of misapprehension in other parts of the state with reference to the relief tieoded by cyclone sufferers in north western Iowa. It is easy to understand that conflict^ ing reports are bound to gain more or less circulation, and that some credence is like to be given to the stories oi want and suffering that have gone out. The latest is found in the Des Moines Register of recent date, which reads: "The plan broached the forepart of the week to raise relief for the northern loWa sufferers of the September cyclone is at present in statu quo. The information from there has thus far been very indefinite and no steps will bo taken Until more is known of their condition and just what is wanted. A meeting was called yesterday at the Y. M. C. A. building, but was not largely attended. It was decided, however, that nothing could be done,'that people Would not be apt to take much interest in the matter until it was shown conclusively and in a more tangible way how things stood. A communication was received by Mayor Hillis from Britt, Hancock county, asking for aid. Yet Hancock county covers only a fraction of the entire ^extent of the terrible monster which in the .twinkling of an eye sent 53 mortals into the great be yond. It may be that other counties are in a worse or as deplorable a condition as Hancock. It has been suggested that Des Moines send a man up there to go over the territory .and see just what is needed. Then that a mass meeting be called, at which steps shall be taken ,to send them succor. , Des Moines citizens will be chary of sending money contributions, unless sure it will be given to the sufferers. The Pomeroy experience is still fresh in memory. But should it be seen that help is needed, and that badly, the women stanc ready to take hold and do all that is possible to do." This paper has given full and authentic information from time to time concerning the situation in this section, and that information has been to the effect that so far as Kossuth county is concerned no call for outside aid will be made. No effort has been made to conceal the fact that the destruction was enormous, and that many people were rendered homeless and in some cases entirely destitute. Notwithstanding these facts Kossuth, although grateful for the kind expressions thai have come and the offers of assistance from the outside, is yet amply able and willing to look after its own people. Added to the contributions which have been made by its own people the board of supervisors have been actively at work making thorough investigation of the needs of those who were in the path of the storm, and have supplied lumber and building material in all cases where in their judgment they really needed. They have covered the ground fully, and we have it from Chairman Chubb that none are left unprovided for. Thus it will be seen that the reports of destitution are unfounded so far as this county is concerned, all statements to the contrary notwithstanding. We have no definite knowledge as to the situation in Hancock county, referred to in the extract from the Register, but from our general information of the condition of the people over there we are not inclined to believe that it is worse than than here, nor that its people are not fully able to care for its victims of the storm. At any rate the outside people need take no action until such time as they are in possession of accurate information such as will justify them in making a move. GREAT IS NORTHWEST IOWA. The Traveling Agent of the State Register Records a Pew Juipres slons of a Trip In This Section, The following notes are clipped from an article in Sunday's Register; What a great big country northwest Iowa is. And how undeveloped, Riding over the railroads, and they traverse the counties most advantageously to afford them inlets as well as outlets, vast acres of semi-improved farm lands are to be seen in nearly all the coimties lying north of the main line of the Chicago & Northwestern railroad, Farmers do not put a very high valuation on their lands, and they are offered today at about the same discount below their actual worth that the farmers in older communities quote the value of their ands to the township assessor, Think of the farms in such counties as Wright, EEancoek, Hutnboldt, Kossuth, Pooa- aontas, Palo Alto, Buena Vista, Clay, O'Brien, and others being offered at p!8, $20, and $25 per acre, and close to e, growing towns! It is in these counties where largo numbers of wealthy Illinois farmers are settling, juying four or five acres for the price hey gold pne at, and as they put it, 'get just as gpod land," This portion of Iowa has produced a pprn, prop, don't you think?

A, Cory was out to his barn tending a sick horse about 10 o'clock, and lefl his lantern hanging on one of the harness hooks while he Went to the drug store to. get some medicine. It is supposed the lantern was knocked down in some way by the horses as the barn was all in flames when Mr. Cory got back. He lost four head of horses. Two of them were well bred running horses, one he recently purchased for $600. The total loss will reach close to $1,000, with no insurance on barn, and but little if any on the horses.

MA&ttfED AT MS MOtlfflS* The Wedding of Harvey Inghftin and Miss Nellie Hepburn, which Occurred Yesterday. Will Be at rtoifie After Nov, io—The Butler-Wilson Wedding: This Evening at 6:30* The scorpions of the neighborhood press have had their Inning. Ever since the announcement of the approach* ing nuptials of Harvey liigham of this paper and Miss Nellie Hepburn of DOB Moines, and even before anything 6ffl* cial was khdwn, the aforesaid scorpions have rolled a sweet morsel under their' tpjigues, metaphorically, and many and varied have been the complimentary notices of the coming event. This paper, for reasons that must be appar* ent, has been barred from participating in this innocent amusement, but the time has come when its hands are no longer tied, and the other half of the firm which controls' the destinies of this journal of education takes unalloyed pleasure in saying that the interesting event which united for life these two worthy people occurred at the home of the bride's mother in Des Moines last evening. ,',..., Miss Hepburn is known as one of the most charming and accomplished young: ladies of the capital city. She has> been a resident there from childhood, or nearly 'so. and none speak of her except in words of highest praise. Harvey Ingham is strictly a Kossuth county product, being born and reared in this county. A graduate of the .law department of the State University of Iowa, his'original intention was'to have become a disciple of Blackstone, but by one of those unforeseen occurrences which comes in the lives of most men his lot was cast in other paths, and in 1882 he purchased a half interest in THE UPPER DES MOINES, since which time he has been actively engaged in journalistic work. His brilliant success as a newspaper writer is fully attested by the unqualified complimentary notices that have from time to time appeared in the leading state papers, and no room for doubt is left concerning his work as judged by'the best critics on the daily press of the state. It should be borne in mind that what is hero said of Mr. Ingham is not, strictly speaking, the utterance of the paper, but a tribute to genuine ability from one who has for twelve years been associated with him through the ups and downs of newspaper work, and who feels in a measure qualified to speak intelligently of his splendid qualities as a man and his exceptional scholarly attainments. Mr. and Mrs. Ingham started last evening for Chicago, where it is their purpose to remain briefly, after which they will return to Algona and be at home after Nov. 10, at their residence, the Lockwpod property. Many friends of both will extend their hearty good wishes, and bespeak for them unbounded happiness in their new relation. This morning's Register gives an extended report of the interesting event, a paragraph from which is reproduced: The ceremony was performed by the* Rev. A. B. Marshall of the Central 1 Presbyterian church, and the regular Presbyterian service was used. Th& bride wore a plain white silk, without train, trimmed the chiffon and lace. She was attended by Miss Hattie Kirkham and the 'best man was Mr. Fred Ingham of Omaha, younger brother of Mr. Harvey Ingham. The ceremony was not long, and the persons most concerned acquitted themselves with simple grace and earnestness that was more than usually impressive. When it was over the relatives and friends present, nearly all who had known one or the other of the couple just wedded all their lives, expressed as well as a few words could do at such a time, how pleased they were by what had just occurred, and then a light and dainty wedding supper was served in the dining room by Mrs. Hepburn, Mr. and Mrs, Ingham left on the Chicago & Northwestern train at 9 o'clock for Chicago, where they will remain a fev7 days, visiting a sister of Mr. Ingham, and wijl then return at once to Algona to make their home. There will be no extended wedding trip at present, Butler-Wilson, The ceremony which will unite in marriage Mr, Edgar B, Butler and Miss Nettie Wilson will occur at the home of the bride this evening at 6:30, Rev, H, B, Butler officiating. It is with genuine pleasure that we record this event to be. Miss Wilson is one of Algona's most accomplished young women, held in the highest respect and esteem wherever her splendid qualities are known, while the groom is one of our popular and prosperous business men whose sterling Integrity is one of his marked characteristics. This paper joins the hosts of friends of the contracting parties in sincere and earnest congratulations, Mayor IIHUs at Burt. Mayor Hillis of Des Moines was in Algona last Thursday, where he.called upon friends and met many republicans of the town. He spoke on political issues Thursday evening at Burt, where, the Monitor says, he had a good audience and made a favorable impression. It is said the Burt people are dissatisfied because Mr. Hillis was sent to Burt after having been announced to speak at Algona. This criticism is not justified by the facts. Algona has given up to Burt the only speaker that has been assigned to this place during the present 'campaign, This section has been short of speakers this fall for the very good reason that their services have been required in portions of the state where they are needed more and t^ie Burt people should consider themselves fortunate in securing anv at all. Mr- Beeson spoke at Lu Verne last week, and that and theB.urtspeech are the only ones the county has had. WApmo-Cprd wood to saw, at 50c a card, in, town or i« the country. Leave S^.^^ill^ 1 ^ * <*-.
