Stewttt fcettwi herttse, ltett< , &t*>i& K.g.taftfki oota. ;v ¥H« ft»At, LOCAL ISsUfi. : ; The free coinage democrats met in Des Moiaes last week in sufficient ; flutabeffl to indicate that they can con* ,:teol the coming state Convention and :- irepudiate President Cleveland's policy, f unless vigorous efforts are made by the "Bo*und money" men, This -raises an issue in Kossuth county Which is as likely to make the coming ..democratic convention interesting as S v the multiplicity of candidates will the * .Republican gathering. A number of the party leaders are free silver men, But on the other hand the German democrats are largely for "sound money" and are not likely to sit by and ' .^ee free coinage delegates sent to Marsballtown if they can prevent it. And they have a good fighting chance * because by the very necessities ot the case they will have the active assist* ' ance of the Courier. The Courier cannot sit quietly by and see President Cleveland and the postoffiee department repudiated by the local democ- r racy, whatever it thinks of the dollar x of our dads, and it will undoubtedly come out in no uncertain manner on /'this proposed scheme to carry the •' state convention. The Courier cannot .• be expected to repudiate silver entirely, and endorse without qualifications ' the gold standard of President Cleveland. But the Courier cannot escape the fact that President Cleveland has ..atoodby it, in spite ,of private differences. So far as the Courier is concerned this is the best, wisest, safest, and most beneficient administration the country has ever had. What is there left but to say so, and to say so < now when those not in office have doubts about the conduct of affairs, and when democratic congressmen like Bryan are traveling the country in- 1 citing open mutiny? The free coinage men may and • •' probably will sweep the state as they • Jiave Illinois, and repudiate the president in the coming state platform. But if the Courier comes out as we confidently expect it will, it can prevent Kossuth county from assisting in the plot.. It will be a close and inter' esting contest. GAMBLING AND SPECULATION. A gentleman of the cloth once said to - -THE UPPER DBS MOINES that chess is a, legiti-nate amusement and whist not 'because the element of chance is wholly eliminated from the former. THE UP' PER DBS MOINES pointed out to him that there is a bigger element of chance in farming than in either one. Chance enters into every business and social relation of life. The most legitimate pursuits sometimes possess the largest -elementof uncertainty. Great inventions and innovations of all kinds have .been the wildest kind of guesses. The .lexicographers give no satisfactory ,'definition of words dealing with legiti- .mate and illegitimate chances. And society has not succeeded in making a .distinct dividing line between ventures !'$i^ which may be approved as speculation pr condemned as gambling. Thomas 1 Jefferson asked the Virginia legislature to authorize a lottery for the disposal '--Of MS library, while today all classes •denounce lotteries, Henry George and u jhj[|f Jo^ovjrers believe buying and selling ?land at 9> profit to be more disastrous than lotteries, and the day may come ' when land speculation will be abolished. .At present a much disputed business 'pursuit is buying margins on the board /, of tra.d.9.

The lawyers used to ffidnopolize legislative seats. Electing newspaper men is getting one step, and a long one, nearer the people. Polk county republicans endorsed the primary system of nominating candidates last week and advocated a state law regulating primary elections. » Gen. Drake gets 36 out of Polk county's 40 delegates, Frank Clarkson is now city editor of the Register, succeeding Frank Bickneil, who goes into Secretary McFarland's office to superintend census statistics. Frank Is one of the coming newspaper men of the west ^^^^^^^^^^^ Des Moines saloons are closed. The courts have knocked out their petition. Those who favor early conventions have an example in Des Moines. There they nominated all the candidates for county offices, members of the legislature, and delegates to the state convention in one big convention last week. • IN THIS NEKTBQBHOOD. The town of West Bend has an even 500 people. Bancroft has a mandolin club of 15. Charlie Slagle will teach them. Palo Alto county has 12,091 people, of which 2,106 are in Emmetsburg. - The Methodists west of us hold their annual campmeeting at Spencer, June 20-23. The Burlington depot at Emmetsburg was struck by lightning last week Sunday. 'Mrs. Jas. S. Taylor went to Livermore to attend the wedding «f a friend and is visiting. The Standard Oil company is making Estherville a distributing point and is putting in big tanks. Emmetsburg Reporter: Miss Nfna Blossom of Algona spent .Saturday in this city, the guest of Mrs. 5, P. Grose. The West Bend Advance is a new paper this week. This giws the Bend two papers and both newsy and well patronized. B. G. Hough and wife, late of Irvington, have removed to Clarion, where Mr. Hough has ,purchasedithe jewelry stock of Tillson & Co. The West Bend Advance notes Will Laoy's. marriage and says: Will's many friends here wish him all manner of success in his new venture. David Dutt in's daughter, Mrs. O. N. Brown, has been quite sick at West Bend. Mr. Dutton and Mrs. , Ned. Dodge were with her last week. In reporting the Odd Fellows' doings the LiverrnOre Gazette says: The Algona mandolin club furnished us a nice concert from the stand during the dinner hour. West Bend had a good delegation at Algona Memorial day. They report to the Advance: Algona's observance of the day, while not on an elaborate scale, was appropriate and quite largely participated in by her citizens. Drake of Palo Alto, wfaose wife accuses a neighboring farmer of rape, has sued him for $5,000, If be believes the man guilty he should adopt the lead cure instead of the gold cure, to borrow Geo, E. Eoberts' epigram. Des Moines Saturday Keview: Di\ Shore, who some time ago moved it Nineteenth and Pleasant streets, has bought the corner lot adjoining the one on which is the home which he occupies, and is soon to begin the erection of a comfortable home upon it. Spirit Lake Beacon: There were some two million baby pike in the fish oar from the Duluth government station received here Thursday even* ing of last week. A good share of the consignment were planted in Spirit Lake and the west Okoboji, while a considerable number were reserved for streams in eastern Iowa, We stand corrected, The Webster City Tribune says; The Algona TJppar, DBS MOJNE.S, should be a little more carefulin reporting the standing of neighboring companies of the Iowa National guard. We quoted from them Saturday, giving our home company's standing in ipspeotipn at 51,88, when upon investigation we find ittobeW.SS/ . s «gf§ SppWHSd aftd fieft B01MVER Witt BE HERE. Sot Onr Congressman, bttfc Mis qtient Brothef i» fig Orator on Jniy Fourth. f be Program of fiS Music attd tot Everybody. Will Mid V< S. Oollivef, who is to he Algofia's otator on the Fourth, gave the Memorial day address at Fort Dodge. The Messenger 1 says It was "intensely interesting and the large audience gave its undivided attention to eyefy* Word the gifted speaker had to offer." The Messenger's report of the address is interesting, now especially that we are so soon to invite the public to hear Mr. Dolllver. It says! Mr. Dolliver'a introductory remarks were of a general character, In the course of which he applauded the act of presenting the flags to the schools of the city by the members of the woman's relief corps, and pledged the youth of America to cherish the memory of the dead and defend the rights •of the living veterans of the war* He said that " the thought of man seems to epitomize complex events in the name of the fortunate leader who gives them their most lasting impress,'" and selected Lincoln and Grant as the men •about whose names the traditions of the civil war tend to gather, saying: "General Grant is, to my mind, as far removed from the Spectacular leaders who take up the time of the historian as can well be imagined. Neithe: 1 Caesar nor Napoleon ever transacted the bloody business of war On a scale like the career of Grant from Vicksburg to Appomattox. It requires no special gift of prophesy to foresee that in the years to come, when men's minds are freed from the glamour of mere spectacular effects, the 'man of destiny,' who set upon modern Europe the seal of a transient military despotism, will receive but a passing notice when compared with General Grant." "It seems like the act of providence that the Union general fitted so easily into the purpose that was- in the 'heart of Abraham Lincoln, for after all, behind all the battles that were fought, behind the marches and the sieges and the victories, there stands the figure of the president growing more imposing and collosal as the years go by; the one man who in the providence of God, more than any other, by the inspired wisdom of his counsel, delivered the nation from the perils of civil strife." This was followed by a discussion of the relation of Lincoln to the war and to the emancipation of the slaves, together With a brief outline of the present Condition of the African race, with suggestions for its amelioration. The speaker then said that "it is not to the solitary figure of this national defense that this day is dedicated; it is rather to the nameless millions, who in humble lines of service, with undaunted courage and uncomplaining patience bore the duties of a soldier without the incentive of personal reason; and to the countless stricken homes of the nation into which came the anxieties of the distant battlefields and the daily shadows of death that the memories of this day are given." After detailing and eulogizing the work done by the rank and file of the enlisting millions of the national defense, the speaker closed, saying, "this day which 'has been dedicated to the memory of the departed dead has become the memorial of a' -victory grander than any military pageant in the history of the human race; the reunion of a mighty nation in a fellowship that rejoices in the glory of a common flag and looks forward in hope and courage to the future of a common country." PROGRAM OF EXERCISES. The morning exercises will be held in the grove north of the Free Methodist church. E, P. McElroy will act as chaplain, Samuel Mayne will read the Declaration of Independence, D. T. Smith will arrange .the vocal music, and Vic. B, Dolllver will deliver the oration. The exercises will begin at 10:80 o'clock. MUSIC BY THE BANDS, Whatever anybody misses on the Fourth no one will miss band music, IkeFinnell has secured the Algona, Burt, and Bancroft bands, all of which will be here, and in addition has engaged the Emmetsburg Juvenile br'.d. In the evening it is expected that a M . band concert will be given on the co "t house square, which will be illuminated with Chinese lanterns. The music will be interspersed with "living pictures" on the balcony set off in colored lights. The bands will play in town all day, and alone will furnish a day's amusement, THE DAY'S AMUSEMENTS. The Algona ball club will furnish a big championship game on the grounds near the Northwestern depot in the afternoon, a ballpon ascension will ".•.> made by the man who traveled with the Brunson boys' TJunole Tom show, races and other sports will fill in, all up town and all free. The manage' ment of the oalebration have nothing to do with anything where " an ad* mission is charged. 9 te . fi, Slackfofd, Davii ai delegates 10 .

The bridge to be all iron supported by hollow iron piers filled with piling and concrete. It will be the first bridge of the kind in these parts. SUPERVISOR DISTRICTS. The matter of dividing the county was discussed and the matter laid over till the adjourned meeting. A variety of opinions seem to exist about the matter and it is not certain what will be done. A BOUT WITH THE DOCTORS. Dr. McCormack was elected physician for the south part of the county for $250 for the ensuing year. The .following resolution was adopted: Resolved, That the trustees of townships and boards of health are hereby notified that except in extreme cases of emergency no bills will be allowed by the board for, medical attendance on county poor, unless tho physician-employed by the board has been notified and fails to respond, and that Dr. Saunders-of Swea City is employed in the north 12 townships, and Dr. Chas.

SOME REJECTED CLAIMS. Dr. Paul of Whittemore wanted $17 for giving anti-toxine treatment to diphtheria patients. Dr. McCormack went over and found that no diptheria existed,-and the claim was not allowed. P. M. Barslau wanted $3 room rent for a meeting of the school directors. This was the first claim of the kind in the history of the county and was rejected. W. A. Smith wanted $12.20 witness fees, etc., in a justice suit which had been begun without sufficient warrant, and the board rejected it, A resolution refusing to pay costs in justice cases where no case is made out would be adopted if the law permitted.
