Dodds, Com. . r I' ; A SERIOUS SITUATION. Ex-Sheriff Graham expresses it "as his opinion that the Kossuth democracy will send a free coinage delegation to the Marshalltown convention. He has been over the county pretty extensively and he says that but few , democrats talk anything else. THE UPPER DES MOINES' inquires lead it to believe that J. J. Ryan is about the only one who is proposing to stand by the president for "sound money." The Courier, which was expected by everybody to come out last week and align itself with the administration, did, not even refer to the matter, and it is asserted by many that it intends to allow the president to be repudiated. We do not credit this report and confidently believe that it is girding up its loins for the fray and will in due 1 season smite the free coinage men hip and thigh. The Courier has had silver leanings, but its intimate personal relations with the. president are such that this is a minor consideration. In spite of personal differences on this subject the president came out flat for the Courier, and common gratitude suggests that the Courier do no less in .return. There is no doubt that such a ,.,-• broadside into the silver!tea as the j .Courier can pour between now and the 'county convention will stampede them •• and insure Kossuth to the president, . #nd we shall continue to believe that J^it'will not be found.wanting until time ',' demonstrates to the contrary.

Gen. Brake is evidently in the lead among the gubernatorial aspirants. His big hold on Polk county, with practically the Marshall county delegation, halt of Poweshiek, and an enthusiastic backing in his own section are indications of popularity In various sections which will make him first in the convention, Next to him at this writing Senator Harlan seems likely to be ranged. The senator comes from the corner of the state which sends big delegations, and in addition has the Linn county forces, which are a power in a convention. Mat. Parrott may come in second, in any event third with his Third and Fourth district backing. How Senator Harsh, Secretary McFarland, Senator Kamrar and Col. Ormsby will stand on the opening ballot depends upon scattering votes over the state, and in the case of the three from this district, upon the action of the Eleventh district, If Gen. Drake is not strong enough to secure the nomination, as now it seems likely he will be, and the convention does not feel like taking up Senator Harlan, as it is entirely possible it will do, Senator Kamrar and Col. Ormsby, the former especially, may come into the list of available men. We look to see Senator Kamrar develop considerable strength if the balloting is prolonged. TheRolfe Reveille "cannot refrain from speaking a good word for Senator Funk, one of the. brightest and brainiesi men in Iowa's senate. Re-elect him, gentlemen, and you will'have occasion to be proud of your work." , .Nevada Representative: The situation will most certainly present many more changes in the next year, but just now, the man in the forefront of the presidential race is Harrison. become a power lor good in |tb.e, land, When Jtev, Clark in bis in.

When I left the senate chamber, which I have not visited since, I had no resentment. If I lose this time I shall accept the result as I did then. 'But I shall not fail. It is written." ________________ IN THIS NFGHBOBHOOD, Bancroft's new creamery opens June 24.. Fort Dodge is getting a patent on a process for making marble out of gypsum stucco. Corwith Hustler: Thos. Henderson of Algona has been engaged to move the old school house. The Burt Monitor says that E. B. Eddy of Buffalo Fork has rented his farm and will go to Missouri. Ruthven Free Press: Hon. George Call of Algona will deliver the oration at our celebration this year. Mr. C. is a very gifted orator and will give us a good address. Spirit Lake Beacon: J. R. Jones of Algona was here yesterday looking after matters connected with the coming meeting of the Masonic association of which he is president. Hon. John F. Duncombe, with Mrs. Duncombe and his daughters Gertrude and Gussie, are about to leave for a trip to Europe. Several Fort Dodge families are spending this summer across the water.

Taylor and Lou Simpson returned to their Algona homes yesterday Phil. C. Hanna is expected here shortly from Chicago. As the Burt Monitor sees it: The people of Algona say we cannot say too much in praise of their coming Fourth of July celebration. They are making extensive preparation; several bands, balloon ascension, ball game, races at the fair ground, fireworks, etc. They will have a regular jam. Sheriff Saffietffi & W§ek ftgd, atLedyafd.

JO.'S It Was 'Dedicated tftet Week-A Fine Edifice. Noting the exercises incident upon the completion of the new Catholic church at St, Joseph the Livermore Gazette says! There was a large crowd at the dedication of the new Catholic church at St. Joseph last Tuesday' morning. Father Lenihan of Port Dodge performed the dedicatory service, and the crowds were then admitted, filling the church to overflowing, Solemn high mass was said by Father Smith of Emmetsburg. Father Zigraug's sermon was in German, and was pronounced by Father Lenihan to be an eloquent discourse, and as fine as he had ever heard. Father Lenihan afterwards made a few remarks, recalling the bygone scenes of twenty- five years ago, when he had charge of St. Joseph mission. He took occasion to poke up Ltvermore a little by the way, too, saying that he hoped the ddislf btBvefite tfs S IMefil TTBfi t might urn «&!& &ftneif best riflMn , toft wete 6*efi« atsd tt Wai ft tut fight auit witfaeut Just ' Tfaftt Is *M.W witfleise^ antf l&i catty the penfiafit, t*M. t* sight of that fine new arouse an ambition in edifice would the midst of The Muscatine Journal revives £ story told of Horace Greeley to the effec that an acquaintance of his got offended a' one of his articles in the Tribune, went to the office and put an end to bis subscrip tion. Later in the day he met the editor and said: "Mr. Greeley, I've stopped your paper." "Have you?" queried Horace adding, "Well, that's too bad," and the old white hat went its way. The next morn ing Greeley encountered his former sub scriber again, and accosted him with: thought you had stopped the Tribune.' "So I did." "Then there must be some Woocfmany "will aftendT mistake," replied Horace,'»for I just came O f Bancroft will deliver from the office, and when I left the presses were running as usual, the^ clerks were as busy as ever, the compositors were hard at work, and the business was going on the same as yesterday and the day before," "Oh!" ejaculated the old subscriber,."! didn't mean that I had stopped the paper. I stopped only my copy of it because I didn't like one of your- editorials." "Pshaw!" retorted Greeley, "it wasn't worth taking up my time to tell me such a trifle as tha't. My dear sir, if you expect to control the utterances of the Tribune by the purchase of one copy a day, or if you think to find any newspaper worth reading that will never express convictions at right angles with your own you are doomed to disappointment. The Tribune would not be deserving of respect if it could be coerced by the threat of pne subscriber,, or a hundred, or ten thousand, or every one it has, to refrain from telling the truth as it sees it.

Rev. T. M. Lenihan will preach at the dedication of a large new Catholic church in Kossuth county on June 11, andV. B. Dolliver will deliver the Fourth of July address. J. E. Jackson, the Burt Monitor says, has arranged for a neighborhood picnic celebration the Fourth at his place, the old Sweet place, seven miles northwest of Burt. He has a good grove, has arranged a good program, and a " P. M. Barslou the oration at 10 o'clock, Emmetsburg Democrat: The bands in Algona and other surrounding towns are giving evening open air concerts. Is Emmetsburg to be behind the times in this matter, also? One thing is sure, our boys would have to furnish their own lights or play by the light of the moon. Perhaps that is the reason we have no concerts, Ledyard Leader: C, A. Tellier of Algona, county surveyor, has been doing work for ex-Governor Larrabee for some time, with headquarters at Ledyard, Last week he laid out a beautiful cemetery for this place, just northwest of the city. Ledyard is making steady steps in all things that appertain to the making of a first-class town, George Brooks of Algona has the contract to build the new bank building at Ledyard, J. K, Cowan puts in the basement, The Leader says: This building is to have 12 foot posts above and below. The full lower floor is to be used and specially planned to accommodate their banking and land business and we way expect to see something of a rn.od.el for neatness and convenience. The upper full story is to be used for a town hall, a thing much needed in the town, Emmetsburg Reporter; Algona is reparing to have a big time the sleepy Livermore and foggy Humboldt, so that when he next made a visit to these parts he would see new churches at those points. The buildings they now worship in, he thought, were all right.for twenty-five years ago, when the country was new, but were not the things for these prosperous times. And we would say right here that t je Catholics of this place have had in mind the erection of a new church for some time, but last year's crops put something of a dampener on their enthusiasm. Another good crop or two will make matters look different, however, and when they do move they will not do things by halves. The dinner and booths at the dedication last Tuesday must have realized several hundred dollars for the church, and altogether it was a very satisfactory day. Large numbers .were in attendance from Irvingtdh and Bode, the band being present from the latter place and rendering excellent music. HOME PRINT VS. PATENT INSIDES. Tlie Courier's Home Story and Patent Inside Story Do Not Jibe—A Romantic Tale. Last week the Courier gave a mild flavored report of the Burt shooting affray in its home columns. But on the patent side under startling headlines, in which Burt was compared to a bloody Kentucky village, appeared from Mason City the following curdling tale. After picturing Stelser, or Stettzer as the patents have it, emptying his revolver into Heath, the Mason City story runs: Stettzer was of no mind to let him off with these wounds alone, but grabbing his gun he started after the violator of his home. A wild chase ensued, Heath making across country, pursued by Stettzer, who repeatedly drew up his gun to fire, but not being satisfied with his chances of hitting his quarry, he refrained until he had him fairly under the muzzle, when he emptied the load of shot into the youth. Heath still kept on, but his injuries were so severe that he was quite unable to keep ahead of the enraged Stettzer, and finally he fell at his feet. Stettzer gave him the other barrel before he fell, and when the man was lying before him he would have leaped upon him and beaten out what little remained of bis life, but was restrained by other persons who had joined in the pursuit, although they hardly understood what it was about. THE HELLO LINE, Tlie Telephone Poles and Wires Have Beached AJgona-To Be Extended at Once. The new telephone system is in town and will soon be in operation. The central office is located in Geo. M. Bailey's room over the Algona State bank, and George will whisper " hello" in dulcet tones to our neighbors. From Algona it is expected that two construction companies will set out, one north and one west. Every town north of Algona is included in the circuit except Germania, The men to put in the private telephones will soon be in Al* gona to connect all business bouses with The printers and lawyers lined up Friday itt th* most famous game Of ball that has yet beeH played ia Algona. T"flto tJPPEfc DfiS MolftES intended to fepott it throughout by innings and was able to keep tab on all the Special features until in the fourth, when JEtay- inofld made a home run for the laws, bringing ia three men on bases, which play gave the reporter's neck, stiffened by over-exertion on the fair ground fence the day before, such a .wrench that he was unable to watch the whole field thereafter. But up to the fifth the game was as follows: 1st. Printers in the field, THE UPPER DBS M01NBS contributing the battery, F*red Fuller to curve the ball and Will. Salisbury behind the bat. The Republican furnished first base, Randall; second base, Lamson; and center field, M, Starr. The Courier held third base, Ike Finnell, and left field, Ramsey. J. J. Ryan was short stop In honor of his connection with the Fort Dodge Post, and B. W. Hag- f ard held right field on the score of aving once been a printer. Against this aggregation the laws secured a few scores in a tame sort of a way, not specially worthy of mention. Then the printers came in to bat and the laws went out as follows: Raymond and Guy Taylor battery, Swotting first base, McMahon second base,' Judge 'Quarton third base, CohenoUr right field, Cloud center field, Bonar left field, Sullivan all over the field, and Butler short stop. Raymond's curves were new to Starr, who had not weilded the bat since the days of the old-fashioned toss, and he fanned out, but Lamson brought home two scores, and then with nine printers vs. ten lawyers the real contest began. Second inning. Fuller's arm was in shape to give .three, curves at one throw. Sullivan touched the ball and ran like a Mulroney, but he was out at first. Cloud fanned out, ditto Cohenour. Then the printers came in with blood in their eye. Ramsey struck so hard that he threw himself and that disturbed his aim and he fanned out. But Ryan hit the ball, ran first, ran second, ran third, nothing could stop him. He slid bases, sneaked runs, and did all the tricks like a professional and would have got a score but for an accident to be noted later. Finnell was so dazzled by Ryan ( s movements that he could not see the ball and fanned out, but Haggard got a base on balls and ran to second on a wild throw, and feeling that third base was his objective point sailed down on that while Ryan was still lingering. Ryan made a feint to go home, monkeyed the boys, and got back to third, but, there they put him out because they said he was ourtb of July, If will be A regular pl<j fashioned celeb: ation with many new and attractive features aaflefl to it, A We industrial parade ie promised) a game pf base ball free to all »ad to tpp the olimas ia $& e snorting line » racing program oQBjigtjteg of two runeing well a i»Y$ty w e > ftod two b mw bavi 'hf§a arrapgefl.

Then Taylor raised it over to third base and Bonar started as though he was due up town. Finnell clasped the fly with a blacksmith grip and passed the ball to first, and the printers had a double play to their credit. But then Raymond got to first and angled around to third, where he would have been out if Finnell had made the flourish with his hand after he put the ball on him instead of before. But he got home on a hit by McMahon, and then Judge Quarton stepped to the plate. He struck the air once with a whistling sound, but Fuller put a double twist on him and the air caught two more terrific blows and the laws went out. At this point Cloud complained of an ache in his stomach and Col. Sessions shed his clothes and stepped to third in his place, raising an impassable barrier to the west. Fuller hit the ball and tried to put it past the colonel but it stopped and was thrown to first. Then Salisbury was thrown out at first, Swetting holding the balls at that' point with unerring accuracy, Then Randall fanned out and another whitewash was credited to the type slingers. Fourth inning. This opened disastrously. Butler put a two base hit over on the track to open with, and then the laws went for Fuller's curves one after the other. SuUivan hit for B, base, Sessions made first, Cohenour hit for first, Taylor hit for first, and then Raymond made the home run which disabled our reporter, The boys ran the diamond one after the other till it looked like a procession and the printers score was 8 to 18 at the end of the play. Fifth inning, At this point Gary Garfield came and was added to the printers' nine as catcher and Salisbury went to the pitcher's stand, and then a change came over the spirit of things, The laws couldn't hit h}s curves at all, They |auned out one by one. Mean* while Garfield made a home run for the printers, and made such famous bits that it seemed to the laws that he was batting all the time, and so it happened that before the seventh inning wa done Judge SuUivan called the le weary laws about him and denounce the soore'keeper for 'not calling Bro. Starr and some of the other printers to bat as often as their turn o»me. When their objections were overruled by the umpire tbey decided to take it out in, swearing at the court and refused t« go ojjt into the fiejd,' although they still d il JQ ig ia their favor, w& the me was given to tlje printers, 9 tp 0 y t&e ym.pire» ft j s no more tfcan, fair Mere Mttif e»6y Here is a blast from the fiflfaets* burg Deaocratt Decdfatlon day the • Nevada boys Went to Algbna td play bail and came home eaffylng- the laurels, Last we6k fitti tfr?!B fiss MomES aad the Republican- gav<3 them a vefy severe foastitig, saying that they yelled too ffiuchj that they" coached too itiuchjj and that they f scared the Algona boys out of thejif wits. The boys are called " Mulfoney's Wind Bags," and other ugly names. Well, insulting flings will not injtlfe the boys. The Algona boys had been winning victories all over Kossuth county. A professional pitcher from Des Moines was hired to insure the defeat of the Nevada boys, but the latter were not to be downed, They played as farmers and strangers on the grounds ol a hostile city nine, where everything, Including the sentiment of the spectators, was against them. No objection was made to the professional pitcher, The boys sized up the situa* tion and they knew they could win and they did win by a score of 14 to 7. Because they could not be bluffed, they have since been roundly abused. See here, Bros. Ingham and Starr, if Algona wants to meet the county nine from Palo Alto again, count out $500 and come as far west as Whittemore. You can both do the umpiring and you can brine: your Des Moines pitcher along. Muster 2,000 Algona people to cheer if you wish. The Nevada boys ask for po new recruits. They can give you five scores and then .beat you two to. one. Come now, put up or cease kicking. Blowing and scolding will not settle the matter. The diamond is the place to make the test. When can you meet Nevada? Sporting Notes. What has become of the Armstrong nine? We haven't heard from them for two weeks. The Whittemore Champion suggests a ball game we are in favor of: "The Algona and Emmetsburg printers will play ball in the near future." ' West Bend Journal: Joe Mulroney, Jr., was in town Saturday and made this office a pleasant call. Joe says those Algona fellows can't play ball a little bit. The Emmetsburg Tribune objects to the Republican's report of the Mulroney ball game. It says THE UPPER. DES MOINES ''wrote it up as it was, a little overdrawn of course, ;as pen pictures generally are, but very, different from his neighbor the Republican.". .Sioux Falls Press: Cox & Son have moved their training stable to Estherville, Iowa, and the horsemen of that place will find them nice people. Since the failure of the turf meeting in this city last year, the trotting horse industry, so far at least as trainers were concerned, has been settling into a depressing quietude, and the trainers who- have not been able to get away have turned their attention-to other pursuits of happiness and prosperity. Owners and breeders are working their own horses, with a very few exceptions, and of course some promising crack-a- jacks will be developed into dubs. FOUETH OP JULT_BALL GAME, Bancroft Will Get Up a Nine to Compete With Algona For the $5O Purse. The Bancroft ball nine with such- additions'as are needed to put it in better fighting trim than it was in at the Burt picnic will be down on the Fourth to make it interesting for the Algona boys. The game will be played on the grounds near the Northwestern depot and will be called in the afternoon. That and the band music and the balloon ascension will be the free up-town attractions.
