Call'i Ricft Plantation—Miscellaneous Northwest News* Last year there were about an even dozen candidates before the republican state convention from the ambitious stirring, crop and republican majority producing part of the state known as northwest Iowa. In. the scramble O L. Davidson got an office, and Wm McFarland'e place was not contested, This year we are in it again, the Tenth district alone having three guberna* torial aspirants. The wide swarth are cutting moves the Marshalltown Times-Republican to remark aa follows "Degceat nort vest, "as Phil Sohaller used to call it, has apparently lost all modesty. It used to be, in years gone by, that once in a great while a few delegations from that region would band together and timidly ask a state convention if they couldn't have vice president, or carry in wood for the fire, or do something else to keep warm and busy and be in it; but those days have drifted into a memory. Now the northwest comes down like an avalanch with several candidates for every office, fighting a little among themselves but presenting a solid and patriotic front to the rest of the state. We rather like it. This is a big world, but if you want a little slice of it you want to get up and dust. All this is prefatory to the way the northwest is getting tangled up on the ?overnorshtp question. Marshall county has three or four good candidates, but has them bottled .up in a comparatively small compass, where they are easily handled. How the northwest is goinjj to do justice by Hon. J. L. Kamrar of Hamilton, who is big enough and brainy enough to make a splendid governor; by Col. Ormsby a little'farther northwest and whose gallant conduct in his last campaign made friends all over Iowa; and by Secretary McFarland still a little more , westward —how to nominate all these gentlemen for governor and then horn- swoggle half of the other offices is a jroblenj that must puzzle even' the growing and educated ability of the northwest to determine. Bancroft's Postofflce Chan no. Samuel Mayne, late Nasby of Bancroft, and L. H. Mayne of the Emmets- )urg Reporter are brothers. ' The atter says of the former's removal by Grover: The postmaster in Kossuth county has been removed and a democrat appointed to take his place. We are not informed of the reason why the change was made but >resume that it was offensive partisanship, as that reason is always a safe one to offer where the other fellow is to be gotten rid of. We have nothing to say against the removal of Mr, Mayne and the substitution of a democrat, but we wish to simply call the attention of our democrat brethren to the fact that the removal took place right In the middle of his term of four years, he having )een commissioned by President Harrion during the month of February, 1893. Everything at the present time mints to the return of the republicans o power in 1896, and the example of Mr, Cleveland in removing' Mr. Mayne will furnish a precedent for the incom- ng republican administration to oust democratic postmasters arid, replace them by republicans, When such an event does take place, we shall ask our democratic brethren to hold their >eace and not prate civil service reform. jet every republican postmaster be ousted at once and the sooner it is done .he better it will suit us. Then in '97 f the republicans win they will do ikewise, Mayor C»»'B Bto« IB !» Here is the story of Mayor Call's rice fields as it goes over in LeMars: Mayor Cull of Algona has prepared 800 acres of Kossuth county land for a rice arm, according to an exchange, He sxpeots to sow the rice in the latter part of Marph and to keep it flooded a rood paVt of the time during the early rrowth of the plantf With, rjoe grow* ng in Kossuth county, somebody must tart a pineapple and cocoanut planta- lon here in Plymouth Jf we are to keep >ven with these enterprising neighbors n the Minnesota u ne , The story would seem mope probable if the paper iad added that the Algpna inan owned he rice farm in Louisiana, but we are ed to believe that r}ce and blueipint are to grow side by side in the same lough, Success to the enterprise.

Judgo Qunrton on the Mulct, Judge Quarton made an important decision under the Martin mulct law at Spirit Lake last week. He decided that assessments against buildings and persons for violating the law could only be collected pro rata from the time that the assessment was Hied In the auditor's office. The supervisors claimed that the assessments should run back to cover the full time the saloon had been in existence. '. ' Judge Carr'B Curious Cnso. Down at Cedar Rapids last week Judge Carr got A. F. Transo out of gong to the penitentiary on a writ of habeas corpus. He was convicted of arceny, but the jury forgot to find how much he stole, and the verdict did not show that he had taken enough .to ae guilty of a penitentiary offense. The sentence was therefore without foundation. It is the first case of the dnd in Iowa. A Spirit Lake Curiosity. Everybody has heard of the man who never been on the cars, but few jave ever seen htm.
