Although -was considerable discussion the ._ small that the board of su- r paid no attention to there- Bull and Went ahead with the building .against an adverse majority. Twice ihe question of a jail has been submitted and in neither election have enough Wlots been marked to really signify . Anything as to public sentiment, unless 4tl)e estimated by the expression of the minority voting. Two weeks ago not more than half the voters of the county marked one way or the other, although "the present jail is a laughing stock and a big expense as well, and although this was the second submission of the •question. Kossuth county has suffered , at times a rather unequal distribution of members of the board of supervisors owing to the inevitable trades in conventions, and a proposition to cut the county into districts was submitted, as also to increase the numberof members. 1 These were propositions of local im- v portance, and it would seem such as 1 would call out a full expression of opin- •ion; but only about half the voters marked their ballots, and as those who ' did are nearly evenly divided, there is practically no determination of what is really wanted. Questions of state or national importance might receive more attention than these local ones, and even these might receive more if they were submitted at some other time than at a general election. But at the best it is doubtful if a referendum will secure any more satisfactory results than are obtained by our present representative plan of legislating. In a general way the voters voice their sentiments at present in the men and policies they endorse at the polls. But when the merits of any particular act of legislation are to be passed upon it is a grave question whether satisfactory results would attend in any but very exceptional cases upon submission to popular vote. THE DOCTORS AGAIN. THE UPPER DES MOINES desires to tender its friendly offices to prevent the impending conflict between the county and the doctors, by repeating its suggestion that the county medical society make a reduced fee bill for county charges, and audit all bills before they are presented for payment. When the suggestion was made before Dr. McCoy replied to it by asking why the doctors should accept less than .regular rates when grocerymen get full pay for goods furnished these Charges, There may not be any wholly .satisfactory answer to this, but there is ,at least a partial one. A doctor's fees -are not a fixed quantity. They vary according to circumstances. And they •'vary and should vary in proportion as ipatients are able to pay. Dr. Wm, ,A, Hammond, in the June North \American Review, says in an article on jdpctors fees. ''That the medical man should make his •fees bear some relation to the means of his •patient is a matter that seems eminently jest and proper, * * * Tbe value of .Radical services i? always great, and it is 4>Bly the rich whp can properly cpmpen- jBate tne physician who renders them, """-TBthe sajne services are given to a person it is impossible that they can , ^ely rewarded apd hence smaller leertully received.'' Jt may be eaid that as the fee bill is in a county like Kossuth that |s RO opportunity to secure from what is lost in attending But as the fee bill is made , sipians with the Ml knowl- tUey must attend many who little or npthjng, it must it is put high enough expected losses, and that he year the cpnipensa* will average with the rendered, Jf Pr. a ptppwte suggested lor a 8Wt,y Pbargee, .

We will also gladly publish howcften Dr. Heskitt has received out of his entire practice $33? in cash foe the«atae length of time his cases at Banna occupied his attention. There is a very strong suspicion that of the $1,900 tbat has been asked for attending lihe poor in the county for nine mttntobs, a large majority of the bills have 'been figured on a schedule which would »ot be used and is not Used when like services are rendered to regular {patients. The doctors made-a mistake when iti blddittgifor the connty work they put it so low ithat they could not make reasonable expenses. They make a mis-take'now in presenting bills which go so far to the other extreme that the^rsmre larger for the .county poor than for well-to-do patients who pay their-own'bills. We believe that wo represent the sentiments of many of the ibest physicians in itfhe county in suggesting a middle course which will bring'the expense of the county to a medium (figure, and which will give to the doctors a fair compensation for at- tending'those who cannot pay for the service. It is the only course Which w91l avoid continual legal controversy, or 'receive public endorsement. It is certain that the tax payers will mot long'oountenance any such bills as have been'presented during the past nine months. • INCREASING THE PUBLIC DEBT. President Cleveland has during tbe past week ordered the sale of $50,000,-. 000-of five iper cent, bonds. Added to the previous sale this increases the public debt $100,000,000, and marks'the .-sheer imbecility which characterizes the financial management at Washington. The purpose of this sale is to increase the gold reserve, and the presi- •dent, in so far as ;any permanent *n<crease is insured, might as well pour water into a rat hole. There are in round numbers a billion of. dollars in (circulation—silver certificates, green•backs, ;and treasury notes—whaeh can be taken to any sub-treasury 'Oif tbe .United-States and .exchanged for gold. To meet this demand the government has less than $100,1600,000 of gold. If •speculators find that they can force a bond sale every time they draw out 'enough,gold, they will tap the treasury whenever they want a safe investment by presenting the paper money for redemption. Even now according to Washington reports they are drawing out .the gold on hand with which to buy the new bonds, over $1,000,000 in gold being paid out in one day. Before President Cleveland's .term ends they can run the public debt up to the war limit if they can continue to work him. Already the tax payers will pay $5,000,000 a year interest on the bonds now out. That is not a great sum, but it is one-hundredth of the total annual expenses of the nation, and it is for absolutely no public service whatever, but simply plunder for Wall street speculators who can use the president. It. is to .Secretary Carlisle's credit that he opposed the last issue of bonds. SUPERVISOR DISTRICT VOTE. The Burt Monitor discusses the vote on dividing the county into districts and says " We do not exactly agree with THE UP- PEH DES MOINES that owing to so many voters not «3?pressing their opinion upon the matter that it should be left for further discussion. Those who were so indifferent as pot to vote ought to be set down as not caring as to tbe result. Had they been of the opinion that there should be no change and that to make any change would be detrimental, they had the opportunity of expressing themselves by voting no." If those who dP not vote ar« to be Classed as indifferent it means that they are well enough satisfied with things as they are, It is a rule of par* Uaroentary Jaw In the legislature that a change in state Jaw must be support' edbya clear majority of the body, Those not voting in effect vote agajnst a change, As a matter of common experience people who do not actively support a proposed change of any kind are in reality opposed to it.

Benjamin in Gov, Jackson has created a sensation by writing a letter to Mr. Blythe saying that toe Will not accept a second term as governor. He says: "I shall not be a candidate for renomination, and cannot accept the nomination should it be tendered me." 'The reasons he gives are of a financial character. Those who know the expenses a governor is expected to meet with his small salary will appreciate the governor's refusal to hold the office longer. The field will be open to a lot of aspiring statesmen. _ Frank P. Clarkson, who is a univei'- sity student, wrote up the Iowa City-Grin- noil foot ball controversy for Sunday's Register in a manner that shows that the Clarkson vigor is not diminishing. Frank will be a worthy successor to the Hegister tripod. _ The Spirit Lake Beacon <®pens its Twenty-fifth year. It is voicing the common opinion of newspaper men to say that the Beacon stands at the front in northern Iowa. Senator Funk has put individuality and good judgment into his work, is a strong, level-headed, and conservative editor, one <of the men whose influence grows with the years and widens. His own character has become the character of his paper. 'The Beacon stands for clean journalism, and is a constant advocate of 'the best things. May it reach another mile post as successfully as it has this one. B. B. VanSteenburg, one of the leading citizens of Spirit Lake, died Nov. 12, aged 00 years. •'_' H. A. Burr.ell sits down on the notion that campaign committees had .much to do with results this year: "In the fable, a fly roosting on the hub of a swiftly revolving wheel, boasted that he made the wheels go round. The State Register seems to think that Chairman Blythe of the state central committee should have the credit for the greatest republican plurality Iowa ever gave. Jim Blythe had no more to do with it than the fly on the wheel hub. This campaign ran itself, and that is -the significance of it. It was an elemental movement in society, like an. earthquake." GEIMM DEFEATS OAEVEE, Charlie Grimm of Clear Lake, Member of the AJ&ona GunOtub, Beats Dr. Carver In Chicago. Dr. Carver and Charles iGJirimm of Clear Cake had a match •contest in Chicago Saturday at live birds. The stake was $100, although the Chicago Tribune of Saturday .said: '"JDr. Carver has plenty of matches .on hand 'just now, and evidently intends to shoot until all the local marksmen are satis fled, This manning he shoots Grimm— 100 birds, $100,a side—with a bet, so Grimm's friends claim, of .$2,500." The Inter Ocean reports the .shoot briefly and say-a: "Dr, (Carver won two out of three contests at wing shooting at Watson's park, Burnside, yesterday. The contest in the, forenoon was between Dr. Carver and Charles Grimm for a purse of $100. Grimm won with A score of 87 to 84 for Dr. Carver. Carver's shooting was very even all the way through," Grimm is getting in the front rank of shooters and with his world's fair medal is a pretty creditable representative of the Algona club he still belongs to, -: •;.••; . . . . . - . . . " THE NATIONAL fiEANGE. In Session at Sprlngflejcl, in,, X,ust WeeK—In a Very Prosperous Coji- aitlon, The annual session of tbe National Grange of the Patrons of Husbandry convened for eight days' meeting last Wednesday. Fourteen national officers and eighty delegates were present, representing twenty-nine states and two provincial granges of f'anada. Master J. Brigham of Ohio presided. Gov, Altgeid delivered an address ojf welcome, Twenty-seven states were represented with 875 delegates. The report of the secretary shows the pr* - ,nteatiw» has SQ.QQQ lodges with an •gregate membership of 1,000,000. w}nety*fowr lodges, 6.QQO njjejobers, were admitted during the year, and §5 lapsed granges, were mflsaitted.

After the evidence was in Johtt Baldwin ttoVed to take the Case from the jury and made a short argument. Mr. Wade followed htm in a longer argument. When he Closed Baldwin Was about to rise to reply when the judge, who had been leaning back in his chair, came forward stamping his feet on the floor and exclaimed: "Sit down, gentlemen; I have heard all I want to on this case," and at once turned to the jury and instructed them to find for the defendant, This recalls tbe many instances of like character in Judge Love's career on the bench, one of the best being his statement to Fred Lehman once that he was not running a debating school; if he was he would like to hear him talk. The judge took the case from the jury on the ground that the plaintiff had not proved that be had n cliilm. It seems that several witnesses testified differently at Fort Dodge than they did at the coroner's inquest at Whittevnore. The question was whether Kohen had had warning of the approach of the snow plow which killed him. At first the witnesses said he did not, -but at' Fort Dodge some of them said he did, and so there was no case, as the judge said he plainly hud no business on the track. Tho Thompson Dtunnire Case. The trial of the case of Jos. Thompson against the Milwaukee road, for injuries received at the Thorington street crossing, opened at Fort Dodge Monday morning. The first witnesses put on the stand were Dr. Morse and C. B. Hutchins, who came back Monday evening. Other witnesses for the plaintiff are Dr. McCoy,,Bert Cronan, Jack Roberts, Frank Bamsey,Krate Lamberson, and Jos. and Frank Thompson. Monday afternoon the defendant's witnesses went south, and besides the train men and express agent, there were Mr. and Mrs. Frank Longley, Mr. and Mrs. O. Thorson, Jennie Bennett, O. P. Anderson, Henry Norton, W. H. Delair, Mr. and Mrs. A. Ostrum, W. C. Taylor, Frank Koeipke, M. M. Burns, M. C. Bailey, J. F. Niconlin, Mr, and Mrs. L. J. 'Rice, C. L. Ward, C. C. Samson, G. R. Nebergall, E. B. Spear, F. E. Smith and D. T. Smith. M. J. Wade of Iowa City is assisting J. W. Sullivan in the prosecution, and John M. Baldwin of Council Bluffs and M. D. O'Connell of Fort Dodge are with Mr. Clarke for the company. The federal courts try their cases quicker than the state courts, and a conclusion will be reached soon. It is a big case and will be bitterly fought. Mr. Thompson asks ftlO^SO. Those who have returned say that the jury ismade up of good-looking and intelligent men. A Germaiila Man Brought Back. Sheriff Samson was out at Sargeant Bluffs, near .Sioux City, last week, and returned Monday with a Germania resident named Knapp, who had run off with a mortgaged team. He is not very bright and the hay he left is enongh or nearly enough to satisfy all claims, and he had no occasion to skip. The sheriff says that they were in extreme destitution out where he found them and that Mrs, Knapp was left withoutany visible meansof subsistence. The Whlttemoce Saloon Tine Cases. Mrs, Finnegan was over last week and adjusted the fine on her property occasioned by Mr, Finnegan being caught in the official drag net some months since. The lien in her case was only on tbe room the liquor was sold in, and as she was willing to pay $75 and costs, 'Squire Raymond thought that was all he could collect, and accepted it. In the cases of Millerke and McCoy the lien is on property worth the full $300 eaeb, and suit is under head way to sutojeot the property to sale, MdMfi.n6n tfcnl to* to if jr ft Case wneFS a thfeih*- Ing 1 .tfiftchitie waft wat'fnBted and the tnafi snyS it W0uldh f t WbrR, Sllitotl'S JEmmfetsbllrg Trtni.

T. L, Crose was elected justice of the peace over at Emmetsburg, Armstrong journal: Roy Wells went to Algona Tuesday to attend the normal school. The Milwaukee is figuring on putting a steel bridge across the Mississippi at North McGregor, E, B. Campbell of Armstrong Was a member of the federal grand jury at Fort Dodge last week. The military boys at Emmetsburg give a grand ball Thanksgiving night. They are also building a rifle range. The Democrat says that J. J. Wilson's new Algona mill Is much larger than hisEmmetsburgmill, and valued at $16,000. Al. Adams says: THE UPPER DES MOINES promises that the "blue sky" operators and pals shall be cleaned out of Algona very soon. Will Sterzbach is laid up again this fall with rheumatism at Emmetsburg. The Tribune says that he thinks of moving to the south. Dr. Davies of Emmetsburg is said to. have cases of diphtheria in Kossuth. Does this mean another bill for the board to wrestle with? Attorney David Grier tried his first case at Ruthven one day last week. He won it which augers well for his future prospects at the bar, Bode's water works are about done, A tank on a 50 foot tower, and 10-inch mains on two streets fix the town in good shape, at a cost of $3,000. The Tribune says: We learn of 24 families of Norwegians who will soon come from Wisconsin to locate upon land in Winnebago county near Buffalo Center. The Emmetsburg Democrat says: " Kossuth has a tax list six columns in length. The people over there must be careless about meeting their obligations." Kossuth is a big county. The Milwaukee passenger train between Mitchell and Chamberlain will be taken off at the end of this week, leaving only one train a day, which will be a mixed passenger and freight, on the extreme west end. The Reporter says: Bert Patterson of Algona was over last week and attended the social dance Wednesday evening. By the way, Bert .visits Emmetsburg quite often lately. There must be some attraction. Fowls might smell as sweet if spelled fouls, but somehow in connection with Thanksgiving such an "ad" as this in the Corwith Hustler has a bad odor: "If you want a well roasted turkey or other foul Thanksgiving, get a roaster at Nels Pearson's." J. S. Taylor went to Livermor* last week to attend the marriage of Nellie Phillips and Wallace Taylor. Miss Phillips is daughter of one of the brothers who opened a grocery store in Algona some 11 years ago, and Mr. Taylor is a graduate of the normal school. When it is remembered that both of Algona's flouring mills have been closed for some time until recently, the following item from the Armstrong Journal will be appreciated: "Farmers from Fenton and Lotts Creek townships in Kossuth county 20 and 30 miles away come here to mill although it is only half the distance to Algona," Emmetsbui'g Democrat: Court has been in session since Monday. Judge Quarton is presiding, His honor is apparently greatly elated over his recent political encounter with Attorney Cohoon, and is evidently determined to wear with becoming grace and dignity the official robes that were so long and so becomingly worn by his predecessor, Judge Carr, Though small in stature, young in years, and rather boyish in appearance, Mr, Quarton is said to be well versed in legal affairs, and is one of the most industrious men in the pro* fession in the district, In the battle of life it is industry that counts, and the Democrat, though it opposed the election of Judge Quarton, wishes him every success in his official capacity and the acquisition of the respect and honor that almost invariably crown the labors of a deserving judicial career, A HOUSEHOLD TREASURE. D. W. Fuller of Canajoharie, N.

E, Jeattson has recently traded his big farm on Eagle Lake 6f? 784 acres to Des Moines parties for- three fitte residences irt the city, one of which he will occupy. The fartfi Waft, valued in the trade at $35 an acre. It is one of the best in the county, and, on account of the fine improvements) one which has been much talked about. The captain built a city residence on it* fitted in city style, and has maintained for many years an' elegant establish" ment. The State Register devotes a column to a sketch of the captain, from which we clip several paragraphs: A very remarkable man and his excellent wife are coming to Des Moines to live. The educational advantages- of the city have brought them here, as- so many others have been brought. Capt. Robert E. Jeanson of Swea, Kossuth county, is the man referred to. His wife could not endure the loneliness that filled their great mansion on the prairie after their two daughters had left home a few weeks ago to enter the Baptist college in Des Moines. There would not be unusual interest in this transaction, for similar ones are made every day or two in Des Moines, but for the personality of Capt. Jeanson, who is a member of the Swedish royal family. He came to America many years ago, and was the manager of the New York office of the American Emigrant company when that company controlled the largest part of the emigrant business of the country. Before he came to America he was a ship captain for a number of years, and his residence was in one of the royal palaces in Stockholm, where he held high rank. About the year 1867 he went to Kossuth county and located the colony which makes the now rich and intelligent community which makes the township of Swea. It was not until some years later that he removed '-ermaneutly to the big farm himself. When he did so, he built a splendid mansion out there in the midst of the prairie, on a" hill overlooking Eagle Lake. It is the largest house in northwestern Iowa, and is no doubt kept up with more style and form than any other resident of that section of the country has attempted. He has always kept a large retinue of servants, private instructors for his daughters in several lines, and in fact, there is as much of civilization in that house as it was have in such an solated place. There is a large music room, with several musical instruments of the very best quality, and an observatory, from which an inspiring view of the surrounding country is had. Only recently the captain spent $5,000 in an addition to his'house, and made other improvements, including the painting of all the buildings on the place, which required four barrels of oil alone. He and his wife had intended to make their home there as long as they lived, but they could not stand the separation from their daughers, who had been their only society, almost, for so ..long. The house at Swea is eight miles from a railway station, and though filled with books, pictures and everything that goes to make .up a perfect home, the society was not there, and they resolved to go where it was, inasmuch as the daughters are now young ladies and have outgrown private tutors. Eagle Lake is a beautiful body of water and much resorted to by hunters during the game seasons. Capt Jeanson kept a.sail boat and in other ways made the most of the natural advantages of his surroundings. He is very much devoted to the Baptist church. One of the first things he did after he went to Swea to live was to build a Baptist church out there in the prairie, of which he has been pastor and main support. WESLEY SUED FOB $33. The City Marshal Shoots a Steer autt the Owner Sues the City, WESLRY, Nov. 19,—Bacon & Bronson have sued the town of Wesley for $33, the price of a steer that G. W, Eddy ordered our city marshal to kill to relieve it of its sufferings. There seem to be several conflicting stories about it. Bronson says the steer was all right; that he paid good money, for him, but he was sulky and would not drive, laid down and would not get up, so they could nof ship him with the rest of the carload. They got him into a shed and fed him all he would eat every day, and that he was not suffering 1 . The suit comes off tomorrow, however, and the facts will be fully del veloped, and it will be seen whether a member of a town council has the authority to order the destruction of property. , , Mr. and Mrs. James Hill of Plymouth are the guests of G.
