Emmet had Day as representative two years, MoFarland four years, Kasa two years, and Myerly two years, in all 10 years. Emmet has had McFarland secretary of.state six years, and has fish commissioner, and a candidate for governor, and the nominee for representative. Dickinson has had Brown in the legislature two years, Cory district attorney two years and Funk senator eight years. Kossuth has had Wilson, Clarke, Lund, and Sessions in the legislature, 10 years; Chubb in the senate four years; Judge Weaver on the bench eight years, and Judge Quarton. It will be seen from these figures that Dickinson county has had less political "pie" than any of the other counties, even after Senator Funk's two terms have been counted in. After Dickinson Kossuth's request for the senatorship is fully as modest as that of Clay and Palo Alto. No argument can be made against us on the score of monopolizing political honors, if the district decides to overlook Dickinson.

The insurance board of Iowa represents all the com' panies, its rates are final, and it im* poses them as autocratically as the Czar. No such power ought to be exercised in this country except .under public supervision. If this be the only way to adjust risks fairly let the state superintend the job in the public Interest.

It adopted resolutions declaring that the senntordh'ip is of paramount importance to Clay, and allowed Ackley Hubbard to select the delegates. On the heels of that, however, it adopted other resolutions endorsing Corn-wall for the legislative seat .and allowed him to select his delegates. As Clay and Palo Alto form the legislative district, and as Clay has the larger number of votes, Cornwall can secure his nomination in any event. With his nomination in his grasp it does not seem likely that he will give it up to help Hubbard. The Spencer News makes no comment on this situation. The Reporter makes a comment, but does not state what Is to be expected.

Emthetsburg Reporter; Algona is to have four handsome bricks built this season, and the work on two of them is already begun. For a long time it looked as though a gap would be left right on the main business street to be filled later On, but A. A.

Three years ago he built the opera house bloclr, and now he proposes once again to show his faith in the town by building another one.

The Dahgef Which fhr«sfifis AgHeifltfr tat interests—Should ed by THE UPPER DES Moittfc's la in receipt of the following communication on our water supply written by Henry PRIMARY ELECTION SYSTEM. Clay county republicans voted by a large majority in their convention last week to drop the caucus and convention method of chosing candidates for office and resort to a primary election. We notice that Story county republic- fins did the same. Both follow the lead of Polk county and are undoubtedly in line with a prevailing sentiment over the state. Polk county republicans asked their representatives to secure the passage of a law protecting jjrimary elections, and Marshall county republicans seconded the resolution. In Marshall county where the primary plan has been in force for some years an effort was made to return 'to the convention and caucus, but it received only a few votes. 'There are undoubtedly objections to the primary election. But they. are , outweighed by the advantages of the system in the minds of a growing number of'political managers. THE INSURANCE COMBINE. Spirit Lake expected when its new , waterworks were in, and a number of solid brick blocks were erected, that it would enjoy cheaper insurance rates. . The insurance board have reported and the Beacon says that rates are uniformity higher than before. From the Book Rapids Review and other influential papers come vigorous protests against like arbitrary, uncalled for, $n<J extortionate action by this illegal insurance trust, Some time ago THE ; UPPER DES MOINES reviewed State '.AitcUtqr McCarthy's report for the which opens at Spirit Lake today and continues ten days. WI11.F. Muse, the brilliant Ottumwa newspaper man, will help him. The Chautauqua season this year promises to be the event of all events thus far in the lake history. Lafe Young suggests that now that Ed. Chassell is not to be senator he can get married. It beats politics. Hancock county will try the primary election plan this fall, made last week. The decision was "Uncle Dick" Clarkson met Mayor Hillis of Des Moines on the street last Friday, and after some discussion about Illegal liquor selling in .drug stores told the mayor he could show him that the law was toeing violated. The mayor agreed to follow, and the pair made a raid on the Aborn Tiouse drug store, capturing a bottle of beer and a gloss half full In the hands of on astonished visitor. The pair went up the street with the beer, and the incident has set the town agog. Mr. Clarkson Is in favor of the mulct saloon and against the drugstore. Mart. Whelan won the legislative nomination in the Emmet, Dickinson, and Osceola district. He is a genial, hearty, apd working republican, and will shed a glow of goodfellowBhip about his section of the capitol, 00¥ SHOW AT Tlie Double Nose Cow ana Her Proprietors Have a Lively Time. The gentleman who had a cow curiosity in the Fourth of July parade to help out is traveling through the country collecting nickles and dimes for a look at the animal. He was at Armstrong last week and of -his sad experiences the Journal gives a graphic report: Two fat and dirty specimens of humanity, drove into town last Friday with a cow in a lumber wagon. The cow's head was covered with a sack. They stopped on Main street and one of them commenced to deliver a speech about a wonderful monstrosity ho had to exhibit. The -hat was passed around and a dollar in nickles was thrown in. He then stated that he-must have two dollars and a half before he would exhibit the cow's head. The crowd became boisterous and demanded their money back or a glance at the supposed unnatural looking head of "this cow. He peremptorily refused to do so. The crowd then unhitched their team, pulled the wagon, cow and man all over town by hand, and were about to upset the wagon when he begged for mercy, snatched the sack from the cow's head and exhibited to the world his wonderful show. The wagon, cow and one man were then pulled out of town, while the other was picking up his neckyoke and whiffletrees, and catching the horses, which had been turned loose by the spectators. During all this time the would-be showman asked for compassion. He said his father was killed on the railroad, his mother was a widow, and he himself had married a widow, consequently they should have pity on him. The last point was probably well taken. At first he promised to exhibit a sight more wonderful than Barnum's whole circus. Although the freak was aiake the boys had more fun than they ever had at any circus or show. It was hard treatment, but all fakes should be treated in like manner. NEWS AND COMMENT. Some discriminating genius evolves the following: A lawyer in a court room may be a liar, scoundrel, villain, or thief, and no one makes a complaint when court adjourns. If a newspaper prints such reflections on a man's character, there is a libel suit or a dead editor, This is owing to the fact that the people believe what an editor says; what"the lawyer says cuts no figure.

Jor Burrell wantsindividualism: Society is organized to death now-o-days. Almost' nobody is working on his own hook, nor is his individual force measured. There Is next to no personal influence exerted. We are bunched, herded, huddled in co-operative schemes of one sort or another, It would puzzle anyone to sit down with paper and pencil and in a sojia hour barely write the names of the multitudinous societies, social, religious, ethical, literary, political, etc., that exist. Just try it, Everybody, to be anybody, must "belong," as they say, to One or more of Jhese circles, clubs, societies, or orders. And that's the mischief of it, they " belong" to iheaf. They are merged in them, dissipated in them, their individuality entangled }n them like a fly $n a web. People of stalwart fibre and -heroic mold used to say, "one with God is a majority," but that is not the kind of majority that modern club life favors.

There were several bids, but J, M, Cowan's was considered the best at a little over $1,800, and he gets the .job, The matter of supervisor districts was laid over until the June, 1896, meeting, The report of Recorder Kandall's fees for the quarter was $909, This added to the fees for the first quarter malfo n little over $2,000 for the six months.

He clips an item from the Em* metsburg Reporter about an offer made for Lost Island lake, which a speculator proposes to drain, and says: The above article refers to one of the most import jint subjects of the present time, the rapid waste of water in our agri' cultural districts. How to secure a sufficient amount for agricultural purposes is of the greatest importance. Water is one of the simplest of chemical compounds, two atoms of hydrogen combined with one atom of oxygen to form a molecule of water. Although so easily formed it is quite a difficult operation to again separate it Into its elements. Water is abundant. A full grown person is all water except about 12 pounds. Most vegetables are over half water. Water although used to arrest conflagrations is also used as fuel. No combustion can take place without oxygen, which forms about seven-eighths of water by weight. A volume might be written on Its properties and wonders. * Twenty years ago this country was covered with water; a good well could be obtained at from five to twenty feet; now in many cases it is over a hundred, and if the present ruinous policy is pursued it Is only a question of time when none can be. obtained above the rook foundation. The distance through the rock Is about 1,200 feet. What will farmers do, as but few can afford such a welli 1 It Is only a question of time when all lakes in northern Iowa will be dry. Just what effect it will have on agriculture can only be conjectured. It will certainly increase the summer temperature enough to dispel a great many rain showers. The annual rainfall from the ocean and Gulf of Mexico will not be much affected, no doubt, as it always has and will be about an average for a series of years, but will that be sufficient for agricultural purposes? When the country contained so much surface water it evaporated during the d^y and fell as local showers or heavy dews, which aided vegetation of all •kinds very much. Our atmosphere was quite humid and all vegetation absorbs or drinks from ft. The water was constantly distributed from the wet to the dry surfaces, so records of our rainfall showed much greater than what came from ocean and gulf. There Is no doubt of the permanency of the rainfall from ocean and gulf, as that depends entirely on solar heat and winds, and decrease in solar heat is so small as not to be perceptible and winds or air currents will not change much. But is that sufficient? When the country was settled if every farmer had considered the pond or lake on his farm the most valuable part of it and had dammed the outlet and also if small dams.had been put In on all small streams Iowa might have retained its moisture and wonderful fertility for years. That the former state of moisture can be regained by a proper system of retaining the water that falls is not questioned, but : lt will require a much longer time to build up such a system than it did to destroy the one furnished us by nature. , If it requires the concerted action of the nation steps should be taken before it is too late to protect our agricultural interests, and to stop th« ruinous policy now pursued of destroying the remaining •sources of our surface moisture.

They wafited Cdfflptfdle* settles to edit the gold theory Cdluffifc fof theifl, He d§- olifledfbut the professor 6f political economy in the university of Chicago took the job. This gentlemaHi Prof. J. Laurence LaUghlin by name, has been leaving no stone utimoved that would aid the gold standard theory) and he quotes John Stuart Mill as authority on political economy. John Stuart Mill is well known, and we accept gold standard teen's authority. Mr. Mill says in substance: Money is a kind of check or order for goods and that itistrinsicatly there is nothing of less importance in the economy of society than, money. Mr, Mill farther says: "If the volume Ohnottey be doubled prides are doubled." Other writers on political economy take the same view. Everybody who has been old enough to know can tell you that prices were better between 1862 and 1872 than before or after that pe* riod. The Volume of money was greater during that period. We had the paper money only, it is true, but the volume was greater. Besides this you see al' most every day an elaborate article written by some gold standard man setting forth that it is no difference what price the farmer gets for his produce or the laborer for his labor, so long as he is able to buy at a correspondingly low price. Now If it were not for taking up space we might offer some evidence on this point by giving the articles referred to. But we believe you will be candid enough to admit that such articles are written a.nd such ideas promulgated. Why is this? Don't the . gold men by using such argument admit the fact that prices are lowered by having the gold standard alone? Who '. en has the theory to sustain? The thec.y part Is with the gold men and they admit It'by their arguments. Now as to gold alone measuring prices. All prices have not been lowered. Nor is It claimed that the demonetization of silver Is the only cause for the low prices of farm produce. If you are talking of lumber or kerosene oil, or the better grades of tin, or men's hats, or coffee, or coal the reduction has been very moderate. But if you are talking of farm produce the following table will serve as one illustration of the great lowering of prices of a certain grade of agricultural produce: Gold value of an acre product: ^fepat-fttlofis Sef«g Made fof of fiiftfcwleldef a bfl the List of iflstruetefs Shows that of the Ablest Ndtftiai Workers fieeft SecUrtd. * M., Rochester, 1872.

H. M'NUTT ON BIIiYEB. Ho Thinks It la the Gold Men who Have a Theory to Sustain, To the Editor; W,e did not under, stand by your editorial in ,your issue of June 26 that silver advocates were requested to reply; however, as you so interpret it yourself we offer our thanks for the space in your paper. While you have not so stated we understand that any discussion which you permit must first answer the question you propound, •" How and to what extent do money and credit affect the prices of commodities?" I have not the time to give that a discussion this question asks for, but will offer you some republican authority for the present, some of whom cliiim to be bimetalists and some of whom do not, We must differ from you on one question to begin with, You say "It is the free coinage men who have a theory to sustain," We are frank to say it is the gold standard men who have o, theory to sustain, and they are sparing no money nor labor to sustain it. The c&use of silver is not a theory. It hfis all the evidence of facts to sustain .it, If T#E UPP&R DES MOINES will permit the space we shall try to show some of these faqts. The gold men are obliged to buy up newspapers by the wholesale to props' gate their theory, The latest additions are the Farm and Fireside, the New York Voice, The Witness, the Rural New Yprker, etc,, etc. These papers are bought outright $nd a ohange of management puts them before the public as gpid standard papers. They want Please note that each of these products is an export product. Dec. 10, 1894, in the house of representatives the committee on agriculture had this question of the decline in prices of the principal agricultural staples before it. And at the hearing of this question it was developed that the prices of these articles were determed in Liverpool, England. Here again we are obliged to be satisfied with the statement only. But the report of this committee, which is No. .1999, shows conclusively that the price of our agricultural staples, a portion of which is exported, is fixed in Liverpool and that the home price is this Liverpool price less the cost of transportation. To state the fact in brief it is this: When we have more to sell than is consumed at home it must be sold abroad and we must sell at such price as the foreign market will pay. When a car of wheat is sold for home consumption or for export there is no difference in price at our market. Hence all our agricultural products, a portion of which is exported, has the price fixed in Liverpool. What is the standard of money in Liverpool? It is gold. These products have their prices measured in gold and in gold alone. We pay for our imports in these products. We pay our interest to Europe in these products. It is estimated that fully $200,000,000 is paid by us to Europe in interest alone. Agricultural products pay six out of eight dollars and a little more than- three-fourths of this sum. It does seem then that gold fixes the price of staple agricultural products, a.portlon of which is exported. _THE UPPER DES MOINES quotes Congressman Springer as saying for the gold men "that money cuts no figure except in a very limited way in determining prices, and that whether there be more or less in circulation is unimportant except for transacting' the five per cent, of the wprld?s business done with money." But does not THE UPPER DES MOINES know .that the five per cent, referred to is the balance of trade and has no reference to domestic use? It would be a slur on Mr. S printer's intelligence to under- The official announcement of the coming teachers' institute is published below, and gives promise Of oae of the best gatherings the bounty has ever had, The corps of instructors en> braces a number of the ablest men and women in the west.

AN EXPENSIVE DOS. B. W. Cooper's Dog Scares E. Hulbert's Team-A Judgment of $13 and Costa. Justice was invoked at Burt Monday and the air was eloquent with the pleas of Lawyers McMahon and Bonar In a case of some importance to dog owners. Last May Mr. Hulbert traveled by, Mr. Cooper's field. Mr. Cooper's dog, or a canine said by the witness to be of like color and size as the Cooper dog, jumped out at an awkward moment and scared the Hulbert team, causing a runaway and smashup. For repairs $4 was paid and Mr. Cooper refusing to acknowledge ownership of.the cause of the mischief, suit was brought for this and other damage. McMahon on his arrival at court dropped out the fright of the team as an element of damages, and centered on the actual damage. Mr. Bonar took the ground that there was no evidence, that his client's dog was present at the time 'of the mishap. The testimony satisfied his honor that the Cooper dog was, howeyer, sufficiently identified, and he rendered the $13 and costs, judgment and Mr. aforesaid of Bonar gave notice of appeal. It was hotly contested, and may become as famous as the Jones county calf case. a shin pel's, to mal?e the people b'elleve that a small gold, basiiji ypiqme pf wooey 1$ better fop flat, when IB i&Qt flolal only to tfte _ „. and. t difflerently.
