When the Wood- bu>y county supef viaws went boodling GO TO THE POLLS. Before another issue of this paper the contest that has been waged, vigorously in some parts of the state but mildly here, will have ended and the result will be known. So far as this immedi- . ate locality is concerned it has been the most quiet and orderly campaign known in years. Without speeches, political clubs, or other means of awakening special enthusiasm, one would have hardly guessed that a campaign was in progress at all. The most commendable feature of the contest, however, has been the notable absence of anything in the nature of crimination or charges of any character against the men who have been, placed in nomination by the respective parties. The "vile practice has been resorted to in .this county in other years, and it is a *ign of the coming millenium when we pass through a campaign like the present without even so much as a suggestion of crookedness being offered against the men who are running for office. We can only hope it is an index of what we may havi! in future contests. The fact, however, that no special t>rass-band enthusiasm has been manifest should not deter voters from going to the polls next Tuesday. The manifest apathy which has prevailed should not be permitted to keep voters from •exercising their prerogative as American citizens. And especially is this Irue with reference to the republicans •of this county. While it is not a national contest, and while it may be said that national issues are not directly involved, yet state elections even in off years have a marked influence on national matters. Iowa is -surely republican by a good majority; northwest Iowa furnishes a large part of that majority, and Kossuth republicans -should see that their county majority IB kept up to its proper size. The way to do this is for the farmer, the laborer, *nd the business man to drop their •work long enough to see that their votes are cast so as to be counted in the republican column. So far as the candidates for county offices are concerned no man has reason for complaint. Randall for recorder, Crose for clerk, Raymound for county attorney, Calkins for auditor, and Hollenbeck and Barton for supervisors are all representative men and are entitled to every republican vote in the county. This they will have if republicans turn outiand do their duty. m6filhS fcgothe f fibttae was one of the uFst papers to expose the crooked wotkj and spared no opportunity to expose thetn and assist in bringing the guilty Ones to justice. A recent development in the matter was the at* rest of Mr; Kelly dfl the fcharge of hav- ingr podded his printing hills and thus mulcting the county of several thousand dollars. This charge was brought by those members of the board who are under indictment, and, as it now trans* pires, was the result of spite work pure and simple. Last week the charges against Kelly Were all dismissed, for the very good I'eason that none of them could be sustained if his case went to trial, and he insisted on a hearing and a full investigation of the facts. This probably ends a case which embodied more of persecution than prosecution. The newspaper press of the state, among whom Mr. Kelly is more or less known, have been slow'to believe there wns any truth in the charges made ngainst him by the boodlers. And their belief has been founded not alone upon their knowledge of the man, but as much perhaps upon the fact that Mr. Kelley would have been the biggest fool in seven states to have raided the boodlers as he did if he had himself been a party to a scheme for robbing the county. HOW TO VOTE RIGHT. It seems to have become necessary once each year, since the adoption of the new election law, to call attention to the proper method of voting; The ballot is a blanket sheet, containing •the names of all the candidates in the field, and it is not strange that some •voters should become confused with the profusion of names before them. It is all very simple, however, when once understood, If the voter desires tt> vote his party ticket straight he has 4>nly to make a cross in the circle at the head of his ticket, and every name «R euch ticket will be counted. If, on the other band, he wishes to vote for one or more candidates on some other than his own ticket, be should ffYst njark the circle on his own ticket and then mark the square preceding the name on the other ticket. Then all the names on bis straight ticket will be counted, with the exception of those marked on the other. As a result of failure to understand the new ballot system many ballots Jjavo each year been thrown out at the ^lections in this, county, and the same thing is likely to happen again if pains is jjpt taken to see that tickets are BO m&rked that the judges of election will readily understand what the intent of the voter is, One of the surest ways to • ftvpid any possibility pf mistake is to The Cedar Rapids Republican, referring to the big Reed meeting at Waterloo, heads it "Acres of Republicans; they Swarmed into Waterloo Fifteen Thousand Strong, to See and hear the Mighty Man from Maine." It is simply a choice of words. All reports agree as to the context. We could not say a more complimentary thing of Judge Quarton than is found in the last issue of the Spirit Lake Beacon; and since we are on the eve of election it makes excellent campaign material: " The record of Judge Quarton ' during his first term of court is decidedly creditable. The demands of the occasion have been trying to an unusual extent. Neither of our old judges ever fell upon experience In this county which involved more perils for the court than the incidents of the present term. It is apparent to all court visitors that Judge Quarton is meeting every requirement with modesty, courage and ability. Since he is sure to occupy the bench for at least four years from the first of January, it is fortunate for the district that the judge is proving his competency for the position of so much, importance to the people." _ An article is going the rounds which tells how to make snow. We are not interested in the process. It will be made here in the natural way as soon as most of us are ready for it. Gov. Jackson has appointed Luther A. Brewer, business manager of the Cedar Rapids Republican, to be state oil inspector to succeed the late L. S. Merchant. The governor said his appointment of Mr. Merchant had been to recognize and benefit a leading journal of the state party and to honor a personal friend, and these same motives now lead him to appoint a representative of that newspaper, so that the paper and Mrs. Merchant will receive the benefit intended. The worst thing to be said of the men who hope to get office in this county by the votes of the democrats is that they are running pn the wrong ticket. of sickness^ Mf>. Stewart is now down with typhoid fever along with some of the other members of the family. The Light house at Ruthven was burglarized Friday night, the money drawer was broken open and about $15, all there was in it, taken. A lot of cigars were also taken and a Valuable overcoat belonging to a traveling man. 4 An Ohio firm has prepared a brand of cigars called the Juveniles and the label contains a handsome illustrated engraving of the Iowa Juvenile band of Emmetsburg. The Democrat says that E. C. Dimmick & Co. were preparing something of the kind, but the Ohio firm got ahead of them. Fort Dodge is to have a new telephone system^ The Bell patents having expired In that city, they will inaugurate a system mane up entirely of its own capital. The Iowa Union Telephone company is operating an exchange there, but fully 90 per cent, of its patrons have been secured for the home company. The Goldfield Chronicle says: We have been reliably informed that a farmer near Webster City is buying old horses to feed to his hogs, paying as high as $10 for them. He claims that this kind of feed is profitable as hogs fatten on it readily and it keeps disease from among them. This is a happy solution of the problem of disposing of the present surplus of horses. The Emmetsburg Tribune says that Messrs. Shadbolt, Carmichael, Jacobs, and Crose have built very comfortable hunting quarters on a point on the west side of Medium hike near the Illingworth farm—everything gotten up in ship shape including stabling for three horses. The boys were up there Saturday night and succeeded in bagging a few ducks that evening. They came down Sunday to attend divine service and to visit with their families. Emmetsburg Democrat: Messrs. Baker, Stuehmer, McCue, Moncrief, and Grier claim to have had a very narrow escape from a baby cyclone near the home of Gallagher Bros. Saturday evening. A cloud that seemed to touch the earth and which seemed to be drawing up everything along its path, passed within a few rods of them as they were driving toward Rodman. Most of them jufnped from the buggy and ran like race horses. Happily no damage was done and the danger was soon past. Al. Adams has been looking over the new government building at Fort Dodge, and says: The writer had the pleasure of a trip through the new government building last week while in Fort Dodge. Under the chaperonage of our old friend, contractor C. B Helper, we took it from top to bottom. The progress of the work is necessarily slow, as is all government work, but the workmanship is all first class and none but the best of material is allowed in, so that when it is done it will be well done. The people of Fort Dodge may well congratulate themselves on haying at least obtained a government building for their postoffice and United States courts. MAMA ON THE ISSUES He Believes We Should Mate Seve Supervisors, and OiVes His Reasons Therefor, He Also Touches Up the Chairman the Present Board in a Gobd-Nat- ured Mariner. J. Adams Bede was United States marshal of a district in Minnesota. He is also a democratic politician who is in the habit of taking a hand in the political contests in the state. His resignation, recently tendered and accepted, was because he thought more of his friends than he did of his job. He wrote to Secretary Olney: "I do this because the party to which I have ever given my allegiance and in the principles of which I have an abiding faith is maligned by knownothings and mountebanks and charged with evils that come from others' crimes, When I must choose between public office and my friends, I will take my friends, aud nothing shall stand between my best efforts aad their best interests," a cross in the circle at the head «f the republican ticket and stop right Ifeers, This will insure your vote her i$i eoiwfceJ properly, and you will also jfep wiib the big crowd, il that is any The disaffection in the democratic party in New York is fairly illustrated by the opening remark of Fredrick R. Coudert, who introduced David B, Hill at. a recent political meeting. He said that it was not the republican party they now bad to fight —they were accustomed to beat them. But It was men who wore the uniforms of democrats and passed as non-partisans. There was no such thing as non-partisanship in politics. —_« Let us make Kossuth's republican majority four hundred this time. That is small enough, even in an off year. IN THIS fflBIQgBOBBOQD, ,Geo.

IIo Passed Away Yesterday at His Home In Wesley— Other Happenings of tho Week In That Town. WESLEY, Oct. 30.— Nicholas Studer died this morning at 10 o'clock. It was rather unexpected to most of his friends. Mr. Studer was taken sick last Wednesday with inflammation of the bowels and grew rapidly worse until this morning, when death came to his relief. Deceased came to town two years ago, renting his farm, three miles south of town, and was engaged with his brother Joseph in the machine business, and with their frank and genial way of doing business have secured a large and profitable trade. We have not been able to learn just when the funeral will take place or where the burial will be made, whether here or in Prairie, where friends of the family are buried. The recent wet weather has stopped farmers from threshing flax, and has been very injurious to that crop, Miss Anna Longbottom returned last Saturday from West Bend, where she has been teaching, to spend a couple of weeks' vacation. She is well pleased with her school and speaks very highly of her pupils and the patrons. Mrs. Ella Reamer and son of Hampton are visiting here at, the home of O. Robinson. Mrs. F. Heal returned this morning from her extended visit in Maine and Indiana. Mrs. Daggett, who went with her, stopped in Chicago to visit friends in that city. The revival meetings are in progress and are well attended. Rev. Kernan of Corwith is expected to assist the Rev. Plumraer this week. L, R. Hiltz of Buffalo Center was doing business here one day last week. G, W, Brown and Ohas. Robinson have purchased a new well augur and are busy these days putting down wells.

John McCowaft is preparing to move from the farm he sold to another near Bancroft, The board of directors meet Hrday to }et the contract for building a school house, in early, To the Editor! 1 was requested b, you to say something in regard to Ih two propositions that are to be submit ted to the electors of Kossuth count, at the coming general election. Flrsl shall we increase the number of count; Supervisors from five to seven? I be lieve that seven supervisors will serv this large county better than five, with out materially increasing expenses The personal expenses incurred by the board of supervisors in the exercise o their duties are mainly in committee work in looking after the building o bridges, grades, etc. This work must be looked after, and seven supervisors wil superintend this work in the same o less days and with considerably les mileage and livery hire. I argue thi on the theory that the supervisors wil be more evenly distributed, and much of the work petitioned for which now required long drives for members o the board to inspect nnd determine whether needed, would under the in crease, with a supervisor representing but one-seventh of the territory of th county, bo lessened. The importance of the work petitioned for would b known to the supervisor of the terrl tory without personal inspection. A supervisor elected to represent four o five townships would soon become fa miliar with the general lay of his ter ritory, and he would be able to deter mine, when work was petitioned for in his locality, whether it was importan or not, without examination. H would have a more correct idea of much of the work without inspection than the supervisor that lives 20 miles away can with inspection. If a supervisor is made a cominitteeman to examine a bridge petitioned for in a part of the county where he is not acquainted, i is hard for him to determine whether this work, if done, will bo for the bene fit of an individual or really demanded by the public. The banks of the creel may be grass-grown and the indica tions point to but little travel there He may report unfavorably when in fact if the bridge was built so the pub He could go that way the road wouli be quite a thoroughfare. It is quite a convenience to live within easy reach of a supervisor. Seven supervisors dis tributed over the county will make them convenient to see and be seen by each locality. I think another important reason for increasing the number to seven is that the county will divide into seven districts much more satis' factorily than into five. The city o Algona should have a supervisor, anc in order to give her one we must have at least seven districts, for the law requires that the districts shall be made on the basis of population. We wanl Algona to compose a district, for the reason that LuVerne or any other town of the county would not like to be parl of the Algona district; not because the other towns are hostile to Algona, but because no small town desires to go into a district with a large one. We objecl to that kind of a district on the same grounds that Kossuth county would object to going into a representative district with Polk or Dubuque county. Give Algona a district and then divide the county through the center north and southland make three districts on the east and three on the west, and I think everybody will be fairly represented and well suited. From expressions heard and objections raised I conclude that Algona fears that the outside districts might combine against her. I cannot understand how there is any more danger of a combination of supervisors under the district plan than under the plan ol electing the supervisors at large. If there are two supervisors to nominate under the present system they lay their heads together (as in the late republican convention) to hold down their jobs, Under the district plan each district would meet in separate convention and nominate a man, There is no one to combine with to hold him in office, If he does not suit his district he is easily disposed of. His district soon becomes posted as to his efficiency, and if a bad man is nominated he can be easily beaten at the polls, as there will be little politics in the election of district supervisors. It will be more a question of business. It would be utterly impossible to make seven districts in this county and have any four of them combine for any length of time. These supervisors are all nominated separately and elected entirely independent of each other, and will be under no obligation to each other, and the reasons for combination that now exist among members of the board are entirely wiped out under the newplan. Algona will not be combined against under the district plan, To divide the county north and south and make three districts on a side, three of these outside districts, if not four, will adjoin the corporation of Algona, onoT half the population of these districts will be more interested in Algona than in any other towns of the district, consequently no one can be elected a supervisor from these districts who is not a fair man, All roads lead to Rome, So do all roads in Kossutb county or any other county lead to the county seat, and no county seat need fear unfavorable discrimination. The rule is that she gets more than a fair share of the county improvements. The present board have added materially to the committee work of the board of supervisors, that is, by levying the county road tax and taking on themselves a jarge amount of work usually done by the road supervisors. I think it would be an outrage to do this work outside of the territory on which this tax is collected; or in other words I think every cent of this money should be expended on the roads in the townships where it is raised, In order for the hoard to do fetter work witb this mosey then the p§4 euptryitQrsfrejn. whepa m,|j8tj$y*> tblf I any other calls for the increase of supervisors. The supervisor's must per sonally look after this toad work o hire bosses. In a district the super visor can give it some personal super vision without much expense to th county. I think a district is necessar., to keep this money from being expend ed in other townships besides the on in which it is raised. No district su pervisor dare expend the road rnohe of one township in another of his dis trlct. If he did, the vote of the town ship so robbed could easily defeat him in a district election, A township might he continual!, robbed under the present systoin of it taxes and fail to make its vote felt in county convention or at any fclec.tion i a county of our population. I thih! the district plan far better ntid mor satisfactory to everybody, because it i strictly fair. Under our present sys tern every supervisor is urged by hi immediate locality to imitate a hof and get all he can while in office, fo the territory he represents regard their representation as doubtful an expects to some time be without any and the supervisor is expected to mak hay while the sun shines. The distric plan insures each locality permanen representation, and if the road an bridge fund is low this year they kno> that they have an equal show with anj part of the county next year, and ar content to wait. The counties on ou east and south, and in fact most of th counties of Iowa, have supervisor dis tricts. and I never heard anyone from those districts say he would like to re turn to the old plan of electing super visors at large. It is utterly impossible under ou present system to distribute the super visors fairly. No one in the late repub lican convention was more surpriset than I was that the two supervisor were thrown to the east side of the county. If I know anything about con ventions LuVerne and Wesley wer after each other's scalps, and eacl town thought that its success de pended on the defeat of the other Neither thought Rawson was in anj danger, but by a slip of the west boti candidates were nominated from th east. We are well suited, and I hop tho west is reconciled to the fact tha they have only the senator to represen them; but I think the enterprise s characteristic of his make-up with th boulevard at the south, and with hi ranch in the northwest, that the wes can reasonably expect that the dis tinguished chairman will be more them than the four other fellows possibly be to the eust. I hope to see both propositions carrj this fall and see the county divide! into seven supervisor districts. Ther our friends from the west can fix them sel ves in as good shape as the eas looks as though she might be if w< elect our men. There will then b three supervisors to elect next year and I am willing that our great anc good friends from the west have all them. Respectfully yours. G. W. HANNA. t Cil! TWO VEBY SAD OASES. Insanity Brings Sorrow to Two Kos Buth County Homes. Two cases of insanity were before thi commission Monday morning. On was that of Mrs. J. A. Millis, who ha been a resident of this county for a years or more. Mrs. Millis is 65 year of age, and for some time has com plained of trouble with her head, say ing that someone had struck her on top of it. Her case has not assumed a violent form. She has' been ver; feeble for the past year or more, anc has required constant care, and it wai thought best under the circumstancei to have an examination, which the commission made and she was sent to Independence. The other was that of Arthur Dutton son of J. R, Dutton of Cresco township His trouble began when some months ago one of his children died. Mr Dutton was himself sick at the time and the strain consequent upon the death of his child is supposed to have had a good deal to do with the loss o his mind. His case was not, however considered one in need of treatmen until recently, when he was made one of the directors of the Irvington cream ery company. Since then he has been at work on the books and at last be> came so confused over the array ol figures that he became entire deranged, Sis malady assumed a violent form, and the only proper course was to take official action, and he was accordingly brought before the, commission Monday morning, and after an examination was ordered sent to Independence. So violent had he become that it required six men to handle him, and it was necessary to tie his hands to prevent his doing injury. His talk was ramb- ing and incoherent, and he claimed while quoting profusely from the scriptures, to have had a call to preach he gospel. He is 32 years of age, has a wife and one child, and owns a fine 'arm adjoining that of his father, Sheriff Samson and his assistants itarted immediately with their charges, iyho will be placed in the asylum in he hope that time and a change of oenes will restore both to their right minds. Both are very sad cases, and bring sorrow to two homes among the most respected people of the county.

Ledyard Furnishes Some Sensational News—Burglars at Germania— Other Criminal Notes. Deputy Sheriff Bruhson, while in the northern part of the county last Saturday, ran across three men who were selling clothing and other articles at such ruinously low prices that he decided to take them in, and they were brought to Algona and lodged in jail, charged with larceny, They were seeking customers chiefly among farm* ers and threshers, and had with them a quantity" of goods. They offered overcoats worth $15 for $1.60; silk handkerchiefs worth $1 for 25 cents; mitten's that cannot be bought for less than a dollar they sold for 15 and 20 cents, and so on down the list. They were doing a good business and were closing out at less than cost, so much less that their actions were considered ' worthy of official notice. Their hearing was postponed until tomorrow before Justice Taylor. Yesterday morning, however, Sheriff Boylan of Hardin county arrived with warrants for the three and took them to that county, where they are wanted for the burglary of a store. The proprietor of the store accompanied him, and on inspection of the remnants of the goods taken from the prisoners the identification was complete. He had his cost mark with him, and there is no doubt about these being the men who stole the goods. Sheriff Boylan said they were undoubtedly a part of the old Rainsberger gang, that have terrified the people of Hardin county for some years, and he has been looking for them for some time. Saturday, while the prisoners were in the sheriff's office, one of them wanted to talk with his attorney and was permitted to step into the corridor for that purpose. He thought he saw his opportunity for escape, and took leg bail, but Sheriff Samson saw him going and gave chase. If anybody is laboring under the delusion that our worthy sheriff is no sprinter he ought to haye seen that race, which was over the hill in a northerly direction, and continued nearly to the river. There the prisoner was caught and brought back. He somehow got it into his head that the sheriff was going to shoot, and so he surrendered. Lively Ilow at Ledyard. County Attorney Raymond's trips to Ledyard are becoming rather too frequent to be suggestive of the peace and good order of that neighborhood. He was there three days of last week engaged in the prosecution of six men who had been holding high carnival. Their riotous demonstrations had ended in their arrest, and the coanty attorney was sent for. He succeeded in having them all fined for a breach of the peace, and they will contribute to the school fund in such sums as will educate other people in the line of right doing, whether it proves a lesson to them or not. One of the sensational features of the trial occurred when a witness was giving testimony. He was probably telling the truth, for Barney Dunlap, one of the men on. trial, made a rush for him and succeeded in hitting him once, despite the intervention of officers. Order was finally restored, however, and the majesty of the law- was permitted to have full sway. Ledyard is getting a good deal of free advertising, but we imagine the most interested parties are paying full price for it. _ Serious Matter at Whlttemore, Last Friday evening, just preceding the political meeting at Whittemore, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Dr. Felling, charging him with the crime of committing an abortion, Sheriff Samson happened to be there and made the arrest at once. The hearing was set for Saturday, before Justice Hatch, and when County Attorney Raymond went over to prosecute the case the doctor was- so prostrated that a continuance was taken until yesterday. It is said that the woman in the case made a sworn seatement implicating the doctor, and upon the strength of this the warrant was issued. The charge is a serious one, and unless the doctor can clear himself by unquestioned proof he is likely to have irouble over it. _ Burglars at Germaula, Burglars entered the office of Bruer 3ros. at Germania last Thursday night, blew open the safe, and, the Register says, secured $29.09 in cash and. $3,400 n. notes. The notes are made payable to Bruer Bros, or order, so it was profr ably a mistake pn their part in taking them, as they cannot negotiate theaj without being detected. The officers have a description, of the thieves and also a record of the notes taken, and }$ will pot be strange if the guilty parties are brought to justice at an early flay. • • ' .
