The Sioux City Journal has for some months had the full associated press report. These three Iowa papers now have all the general telegraphic hews that can be found in the Chicago papers. If they lack in special Chicago and eastern news they make it up to Iowa readers with their much more complete state service. The general reader will find that either the Register or Journal contains all of interest that tie will find in the Chicago morning papers, and in the Capital all that the Chicago evening papers furnish, Both the Register and the Capital arrive in Algona in the morning, six hours ahead of Chicago papers, There are other ably edited and newsy Iowa dailies, but we mention these three in comparison with the Chicago papers because they now pay for the telegraphic service the Chicago papers pay for. We hope our readers will make it a point to compare the Iowa dailies with the others, and after cutting out the pages of Chicago news which encumber the Chicago papers and make finding what one wants like looking for a needle in a stack, see how completely the Iowa papers cover the whole field of general news, besides their Iowa reports. At least one Algona reader of newspaper discrimination subscribes for the Sioux City Journal, which arrives later than the Chicago papers. The Register has a big list here and the Capital is securing recognition. Each of these papers will have a larger clientage when their enlarged news service is fully appreciated. ___________ THE INCOME TAX DECISION. Whatever the ultimate effect of the decision of the supreme court on the income tax law may be the decision does not command the confidence and respect of the public. The wide divergence of opinions among the judges suggests prejudice, sectional feeling, and a number of other unpraiseworthy and unjudicial influences. It is not reasonable that the legality of a tax which has been levied before in the history of the country, and which has repeatedly been passed upon by the courts, should occasion any such breaking up at this time. A majority of the court hold that the tax on real estate rents and on public bonds is unconstitutional. Whether the remainder of the law is thereby invalidated the judges divide on evenly, the odd member, Jackson, being sick and unable to act. This leaves the decision of the lower court in favor of the law untouched. Justice Field dissents from the whole decision, declaring the law wrong from end to end. Justice White, of Louisiana at that, upholds the law from end ing hef Ititerfstl ifi tndift fcnglftnd it losing by the iteftdy depfrecidtlOti of prices. M*. SaifCur's Speech is 66 bold in It* deelM-ationSthatU marks ft big step in Congressman Doltitref is announced to speak to the editors at E'sthervllle. We hope that a good penman has been doing the writing this time. Esther ville expects to put on airs next Tuesday when the new 118,000 opera house is 'opened. tt is rumored that Gen, Drake and Secretary McFarland will lead in the gubernatorial contest. The Speficer News is now a home print paper. With a big advertising patronage such as the Spencer papers get this may pay, although we believe the patents to be labor add motley saving devices. With a smaller advertising patronage the home print is certainly a useless expense. The News is one of the best papers in Iowa and we shall watch its experiment with interest. Col. Ormsby's boom grows apace. Emmetsburg is organizing a big club for him. _ The Council Bluffs Nonpariel says: Mr. Dolllver thinks that Reed will he the speaker of the next houae and Mr. Dolllver has been right so often we are inclined to believe him.

The Register is sound: The Register believes that the less the governors interfere with the sentences of the courts the better, and the less the courts interfere with the enactments of legislatures the better. Minnesota has five state normal schools. The fifth is to be located at Duluth. close of his term ih the ft&hate he Spoke on the death of ft member. One paragraph of his remarks is as follows : "In the democracy of death all men at least are equal; there is neither rank not station, nor prerogative in the republic of the grave. At that fatal threshold the philosopher ceases to be wise, and the song of the poet Is silent. At that fatal threshold Dives relinquishes his millions and Lazarus his rags. The poor man is as rich as the richest, and the rich man as poor as the pauper. The creditor loses his usury and the debtor is acquitted of his obligations. The proud man surrenders his dignity, the politician his honors; the Worldling his pleasures. Here the invalids need no physician, and the laborer rests from unrequited toil. The inequity of fate is refuted; the Wrongs of time are redressed and injustice is expiated. The unequal distribution of wealth, of honor, capacity, pleasure and opportunity, which make life so cruel and inexplicable a tragedy, ceases in the realm of death. The strongest there has no supremacy and the weakest needs no defense. The mightiest captain succumbs to that invincible adversary who disarms alike the victor and the vanquished." the governor of Iowa to erect & monument on the shores of Okoboji lake, where, in 1857, the Indians massacred ft large number of white settlers, and carried away into captivity four white women, of which she was ofle. She was then & girl of but 13 years of age. She was carried captive to Dakota, but afterwards rescued, largely through the efforts of Judge Flandrau. It was through her efforts that the state of Iowa appropriated $5,000 for the erection of a monument on the shores of the take where the massacre took place, and as the monument is soon to be dedicated the lady wishes to return home, but not without the silk waist which She wishes to wear on that occasion. _ DBAMAT10 AND MTEBABY, IN THIS WEIGBBOBHOOD. organized a man- the one 625 population. At the next 10 years to end, in another dissenting opinion in which he cites all the previous decisions of the court. Justice Harlan dissents from the decision as to rents from real estate. As nearly as can be learned Chief Justice Fuller and Justices Harlan, White, and Brown voted to sustain the law, Justices Field, Grey. Brewer, and Shiras voted to annul it all. The effect of the decision seems to be to release all the heaviest incomes from taxation, while leaving small banks and corporations to pay the tax. AGAINST ONE MULCT, However effective various devices which secure laws on the statute book, to be observed in one place and to be violated in another, may be, there is .something in the straight-forward Anglo-Saxon temperament which rejects them, Judge Scott of Omaha, a > noted character on the west- has given voice to this re* lipgnfthce in a recent decision. Omaha ^pprmJt* prostitution to be winked at by the authorities so long as the bouses pay a monthly fine or mulct, One woman refused to pay the fine and was .Jjrpugbt before the judge for sentence under the law prohibiting the offense o{ wbiab she was guilty, Instead of #efltejoing her be dismissed her, tell. : ing the officers that she was not as bad NEWS AND COMMENT. THE UfrPEB DES MOINES' suggestion that the same picture may be decent in an art gallery and indecent in <i saloon has been received by several of its readers with skepticism. They think that the picture speaks for itself wherever it Is. And yet in other matters everybody will admit that conditions affect propriety. Emerson says truly enough that every man who pretends to learning should study Rabelais, but who would recommend Gargantuaas a hero for school boys? A story is told on Wm. Ward, the genial scholar who farmed and studied science in Wesley township so many years, which whether true or not, illustrates the point. Wesley decided to have a township library and deputized Mr. Ward to select It. While Mr. Ward was an expert on scientific works, it seems that he was not so well informed on fiction, but deciding that so long as fiction must be had in a well rounded library that it should be good he took an English literature and chose there- from such standard works as Tom Jones, Perigrine Pickle, Trlstam Shandy, and Roderick Random. The feelings of Wesley's well regulated households when the schoolchildren had got well into these masterpieces may be imagined. There is now living in Algona a gentleman who owns a really magnificent work on Grecian and Roman art, and who not long ago loaned it among some neighbors in a 1 lew as the officials who inaugurat V/Sfl tbis system of fines, which were in' h|;'.|jfgd .licenses to sell virtue. He de* " the system was one of blackmail, i that he would permit no j, unconstitutional, and practice to prevail in his JUi said that be will order <?f» to collect lather country township in this county, the result being that within a short time he was called on by the local pastor, who expostulated with him for circulating "obscene literature." While these Incidents are laughable the fact remains that the people who did not consider that masterpiece of the world's fiction, "Tom Jones," fit reading for school children were right. And it is entirely possible that a sumptuous edition of Greek gods and goddesses might be out of place in many homes. Baudot dedicated " Sappho" to his son to be read after he was SO years of age. The wise parent keeps many good, many great, and many legitimate works both of art and literature from children, A public library would fail of its mission if it gave out books indiscriminately, especially if it had the classics on its shelves. The same book is not proper for all people, the same dress is not proper in all places, the same conduct does not suit all occasions, and the same painting is not decent in a saloon because it is decent -at the world's fair. Here is one of the results of woman suffrage. While Mrs. Thomas Jones was preparing her ballot at the polls at New Castle, Col., she fainted and fell, bursting a blood vessel, from the effects of which she died in a few hours. -M- Joseph Cook stopped in Des Moines a few days last week, Lafe Young says of him: Joseph impresses the observer as being a crabbed man who would quarrel with the waiter at the country tavern about the quality of the beefsteak on the slightest provocation, but those who have been nearer to him, near enough to pay the regulation price for a lecture, say that he is very gentle. -*•*Sam Clark is evidently sizing up his new duties. He says: Congressman Hepburn wrote 1,467 letters to constituents, 858 department letters, 883 pension letters, and distributed 10,460 public documents and 8,500 packages of seeds during the last session. Cbas. Single has dolin club at Burt. Germania has 246 people by census. That is pretty good for year's start. Leon Hack of Humboldt, son of an old time settler, is studying pharmacy at Des Moines. Armstrong gets the same rate for it will be a city. Last December four sections about Swea City had only 161 people. Now the one to be incorporated into Swea City has 193. R. M. Hatch succeeds S. E. Albin as editor of the Whittemore Champion. We speed the parting and hail the coming editor. The Beacon says that several pleasure points about Spirit Lake will be connected by telephone during the coming summer. West Bend Journal: Rev. Fathers Lichenburg and Nichols of Algona were in town today and held mass in the Catholic church. The Emmetsburg Tribune says anent the jail report: Kossuth's troubles with her county bastile have been weary and expensive. The Emmetsburg Democrat savs Bro. Platt will go to preaching. VVe suppose his residence in LuVerne is what started him in that direction. The Livermore Gazette says: "N. R. Sanderson took another big load of furniture to Algona last Friday." Somebody else moved up to live, we suppose. The Ladies' Aid society of Buffalo Fork will give an Easter social and entertainment at the Doane M. E. church Friday evening. Admission 15 cents; light refreshments will be served after the program free. All are invited. Mayor Haggard has been up at Forest City, according to the Summit. It adds: The gentleman was a comrade in arms with W. W. Olmsted during the late war, and the veterans enjoyed a long talk over their army experiences. Swea City Herald: Swea City wants telephone connections with Algona and the rest of the good towns in Kossuth county. We believe the county telephone systems in the central part of the state are a success both financially and as a convenience. The Britt Tribune adds a word on Rev. Finnell late "cow boy 71 evangelist from LuVerne. It says he conducted a revival in Erin township of Hancock county and adds: We already thought he had escaped the hangman's rope somewhere as his genial bang dog appearance was enough to drive him out of a decent society, yet many were they who followed him "watching for the wings." The biggest fool or rascal that lives can get a following and Finnell was no exception to the rule. Charles Johnson of Livermore, according to the Gazette, has invented a patent hen's nest that is a very great convenience to biddy, and is an automatic persuader for her to do good work. When the hen approaches the nest a wicket door gently opens and after she passes in it closes and the hen has private apartments all to herself. The egg of its own weight opens a trap door and rolls noiselessly out of sight. Then, when the hen arises, puts her hands in her pockets, and gets ready to walk out, not seeing the egg, thinks she has made a mistake and lays another. This sort of thing is repeated until the heft of the chicken buds in the box below touches off a spring and Biddy is fired out of the apartment. Following is the complete program of the high school declamatory contest, to be held in the Call opera house on Friday evening, the 12th, at 8 o'clock: Prayer Rev, W. E. Davidson Music— 1, Hark, hark, Like the Lark lleinecte. 2. The Blacksmith Sandel Pupils from Rooms 4 and 5, Declamations— The Roman Sentinel......... Charles E.

Kennedy The contestant marked highest by the judges will represent the high school in the state contest, to be held at Cedar Falls, April 26. The one marked second will receive a prize of $5. The one marked third will receive a prize of $3. Tickets will be sold by pupils, selected for the purpose, on Thursday and Friday. We hope there will be a generous response to their solicitations, as we desire to pay the expenses of the alternate, as well as the chief delegate, to Cedar Falls if possible. Each high school is entitled to three delegates in the business meeting, to be held in the afternoon. Prices for tickets are as follows: Dress circle, 35 cents: parquet, 25 cents: balcony, 20 cents. All tickets purchased from pupils should be taken to Mr. Dingley's drug store and exchanged for reserved seats without additional expense. » * # The Social Union program Friday evening was a star number. Miss Jessamine Jones discussed the moral element in fiction as illustrated in George Eliot's " Mill on the Floss" in a most interesting and well-written paper, while Miss Waters gave the most succinct and well-written sketch of the seal fisheries, seal habits, and seal disputes we have ever met with. The mandolin club furnished music which was encored, and Miss Fannie Moffatt sang a pleasing solo. J. J. Ryan appeared in a new role with an Irish solo entitled " Swim Out, O'Grady." The room was filled to its capacity. Miss Waters will prepare the next three programs. » * * Rev. Zartman of Sioux City spoke last Wednesday evening at the Congregational church in the interests of the Young People's society. He is working up a big excursion to Boston for the national meeting in July. A rate of $17 for the round trip from Chicago has been secured for all who go. The local society will send delegates. * » * The papers generally comment on the Ingalls lecture. It will be the event of the spring season in Algona. It comes two weeks from Friday. * * * Arch-deacon McElroy delivers the Easter sermon at the Episcopalian church. He is one of the ablest men in the church in Iowa, resident rector at Waverly. * * * Webster City home talent gave the "Bohemian Girl" at Fort Dodge last Thursday evening and the papers say that the company is entitled to travel. They especially praise Miss Carrie Kamrar. Why not invite our neighbors to Algona and enjoy a visit as well as a season of standard opera? * * * This evening Rev. Hastings of Webster City will speak in the Methodist church, and tomorrow evening Rev. Bagnell of Emmetsburg. These meetings are preceeding the Easter service, * * * Prof. Lewis of Epworth seminary, Dubuque, is expected at the Methodist church for Easter services Sunday. He will speak on education in the evening if he is able to be here.

Peter Bowen of Cresco died Thursday afternoon after a long illness, the nature of which is not known further than that it was some lesion of the brain believed to be a tumor. The funeral occurred at the house Friday afternoon, Then the remains accompanied by Mrs. Bowen and her son E. C, Bowen were taken to Illinois, where he formerly resided, for interment, ;.:.. .. ,•- „. Mr, Bowen was 61 years old 'an'd was born in the state of New Jersey, His father and mother both died when he was a child and he was raised under the care of others, He became a rail» road engineer and ran on various roads in the east and west. He lived for 15 years in Rook Island county, 111,, where he was a farmer, Then he removed to Kossuth county where be has lived for 11 years. He leaves a large circle of friends who remember him as a kind neighbor and devoted friend, which is the best of all testimonials of his worth and integrity. The family wish to thank those friends for their kindness during his long sickness, and for their many tokens of sympathy and respect aiqce bis death. The county fathers held the longest session last week they have had in years. The time was spent chiefly in the consideration of roads, grades, and bridges. THE UPPES DES MOINES gave in its last issue the record of proceedings until Wednesday. The principal business was transacted later and is reported below. The board will have an active season, and with the new one' mill township tax will do more good, permanent road work than the county has seen in late years. RAILROAD ASSESSMENT. The state executive board cut the railway valuation a little at its late meeting, and the cut affects the Northwestern and Burlington roads in Kossuth. The Northwestern was assessed last year at $5,205 a mile and now is put at $4,710. The only cut in the Burlington is on the line across the southwest corner of the county, which was $3,550 and is now $3,515. The board received a letter from one E. E. Carpenter, who wanted Kossuth to join Lyon county in sending him to fight the lowering of the assessment, but the board thought that shipments had been light enough the past two years to warrant the change, and declined to make any appropriation, The new division is as follows: C.

The Jury Decides That Mr. Anderson Must Not Pay Mrs. French For Feeding His DOR-Other Wesley News. WESLEY, March 8.—The law suit- last week- between Mrs. French, th'» proprietress of the Central House, and O. H. Anderson • to recover pay for feeding his dog, while Mr. Anderson was boarding there, terminated in the jury bringing in a verdict in favor of the defendant. By the amount of costs that each will have to pay one would be led to believe that the value of a dog would exceed that of a horse these times. Dr. McCormack of Algona was here Monday on a professional call. Dr, J. E, Hill went to Algona Tuesday to attend the medical association. Samuel Wilford arrived here with his family from Crossville, Tenn., last week.
