ANNOUNCEMENT, mi^« t .^ 1 twtlntendelat of Kossuth county, subject to the action of the republican convention. A. A. SIFEBT. of the four candidates for the aenatbrshlp in this district is an early settler. Mr. Clarke came to Algona «00n after the war and began life on a tented farm. M, L. Brown dates back to the beginning in Emmetsburg, Ackley Hubbard did not lack much of being torn In Clay county, and Senator Punk has been on the Spirit Lake Beacon twenty odd years, beginning as office devil. All four have succeeded in life. Mr. Clarke, Mr. Brown and Mr. Hubbard are all bank presidents. The two former have accumulated substantial fortunes, Mr. Brown being rated the urealthiest man in Palo Alto county. Mr. Hubbard has been recognized as an able lawyer, and while not as wealthy as his brother bankers, is well-to-do. Senator Funk is one of Spirit Lake's substantial citizens financially as well as otherwise. All of these men have succeeded by being persistent, and their delegations are made up of men of the same kind. They will all take provisions for a seige to Emmetsburg next week. __ THE Chautauqua season at Spirit Lake has closed, financially successful as well as in other ways. The total received for admission tickets is $4,550, nearly $1,500 more than a year ago, and nearly $2,600 more thara two years ago. The assembly program has cost $250 a day, to say nothing of other expenses. The Chautauqua season is now an established feature of the summer at the lakes, and will prove a greater attraction each year. Spirit Lftke Cfoautauqua.

Finally Representative Harriman of Hampton was nominated over H. I. ( ., Smith of Mason City, Hancock county casting her vote for him. He is an able man. • .' ^^^^^ NEWS AND COMMENT. THE dedication of the monument at Okoboji Friday brought together a noted company of pioneers. Gov. Carpenter, one of the relief expedition, Chas. E. Flandreau, the Indian agent -who secured the release of Abbie Gardner Sharpe, Mrs. Sharpe, the sole survivor among the captives, and others were on the platform. But of all who were present the two Sioux Indians from the Sisseton reservation in North Dakota were most noteworthy. Chetan Maza, aged 71 years, was one of the three who were sent by Mr. .Flandreau to trade with Inkpadutah for the captives and who brought Abbie Gardner toSt. Paul. He is now nearly blind and - shows his age, talks no English and dresses in full Indian costume. He and Mrs, Sharpe had not met in the 38 years since the rescue until he came to her cabin near the monument two weeks ago, His companion is Mar-pi-yah- dinapo—a nephew aged 70, who acts as interpreter; He talks English fluently, dresses in American fashion except for bis mocassins, and is a man of great in^ tel^igence. He has the strongly marked face of the Sioux leaders, remembers •well, and discusses frankly. He met Jnkpadutah a few times, but belonging to the friendly tribes of central Minne- ,»ota did not come much in contact with tbe lawless bands about the lakes. He - also knew Umpashotah, the chief who appeared most frequently on the east J)es. Moines, and who is well remembered by the pioneers in this region. Me says that Umpashotah died about yi years ago, Jt Js entirely possible that the return 4)f these Indians to their homes marks tjje last appearance of the Sioux at the JajteB, Theip history and their fate Jj&ve been romantic; with aU their faults were a marked race. No one can at the features of a Sioux leader nptj /eel conscious that they picture elements of power lacking to oivi- Jlsed rapes. It is interesting to note the curious list of accidents to members of the human family which is recorded each week. Take any bundle of exchanges and an assortment of mishaps can be collected that would make a full museum of misfortune. We have clipped a few items the past week, chiefly concerning people in this neighborhood. Down at Clarion Mrs. Keelerwas in poor health and her little child dangerously sick. The doctors told her incautiously that the child could not recover, and she is hoplessly insane. At Webster City H. L. Litchfleld broke a hole in a pane of glass to put a hose into a burning building. He cut his wrist on the glass, severed an artery, and nearly bled to death. At Mason City Deputy Sheriff Snyder took supper to two prisoners. They filled his eyes with red pepper and nearly escaped, At Okoboji during the big rain lightning hit the track ' right under a oar load of passengers on the Milwaukee and they escaped with a shock. AtKeokuk a woman slipped her finger under a sewing machine needle and got it pinned to the table where, it stuck for some minutes, Near Forest City a boy was walking close behind a team attached to a hay fork. A singletree broke and the end flew back and smashed his arm. Up at EstherviJle an ordinary run-away broke two legs for O. O. Swenson. At Dubuque Martin Hayes broke his neck while turning a somersault, The list might be continued indefinitely. But speaking of misfortunes, accidents, mishaps, what are all these to that miscount in the republican convention when a Harlan man tells about it? A whole avalanche of ordinary woe can not compare with that supreme catastrophe. The tJunlaps are shipping 66 tons of hay a day, C. P, dalkins is building a bafn 48x64 feet on his farm near Burt, the Monitor says, ..: Webster City has employed 'detect' ives tb watch people who use city water contrary to rule. Emmetsburg is in a dilemma, it wants to know whether to drain Medium lake or pump Water into it. E. S. Ellsworth has written a letter denying that $60,000 residence at Armstrong story. His home is to cost $8,000. LuVerne News: Algona and other towns of the county are connected by telephone, now why can't LuVerne be in the push and be connected somewhere. D. F. Coyle has moved from Humboldt to Fort Dodge. He has been a leading Humboldt lawyer for some years and will stand high at the bar at the Fort. Emmetsburg Reporter: Miss Nellie Walker of Algona was the guest of Mrs. L. H. Mayne Monday. She stopped off on her way home from the Spirit Lake Chautauqua. Mrs. Man warring, a late Algonian, found a gold sleeve button in her hen house at Corwith. She will return it to the owner when he brings back the chickens which followed him off. Henry Straw, Mrs. Geo. E. Clarke's brother, has made arrangements to build a two story brick veneered building on his lot north of the Signal office in Garner for a jewelry store. Armstrong Journal: Algona is considering the matter of putting in a sewerage system. Algona should have an electric light plant and sewerage system to be strictly in the swim, and we think they will have both before long. Ledyard Leader: Last week Julius Pleth, the active land dealer, sold a quarter section of land to ex-County Attorney Joslyn for $25 per acre. The land is bought as a speculation. Mr. Pleth is chock full of good land bargains and far-seeing men are picking them up. Armstrong Journal: -We suggest that Bro. Jenkins make arrangements to have a bloomer parade when the U. D. M. E. A. meets in Estherville next week. It would be quite an attraction to the fraternity and it is not likely there would be any harm done. Strong rubber bands can be used at the knee. Blue Earth City Post: W. J. Burton, wife and children came up from Ledyard, Iowa, for a visit with Mrs. Burton's parents, John Pulver and wife, together with her brothers and sisters from afar off, who had arisen and gone to the house of their father for a visit. Will and family returned home Monday evening. He reports nearly 400 acres of splendid grain on his little Iowa farm. THE INDIAN SCARE ffl W, Stiffing Events in Kossftttfs History Recalled by the Dedi cation ftt OkobojL Algorta Contaittftd & Lot of Madly fright* fttied Inhabitants—Many Left this Country tot A great many memories of stirr events have been recalled all over northern Iowa by the dedication of the monument at okbboji, Friday, in com* tneffloration bf the Indian massacre of I86t. This is especially true in ahd about AlgoWa, because BO settlement was mol*e expbsed to a raid than that along the east Des Moines, The hews of the killing at the lakes did not arrive until two Weeks after it occurred, but when it did come it was attended with enough rumors of war and bloodshed to appal the stoutest heart. Many quietly left the country never to return. But the stayers of the settlement decided to fight it out. Part of them started on a tour of inspection and the rest built the stockade, stumps of which remained on the old Ford corner many years. The scouting party consisted of Lewis H. Smith, Peter Riebhoff, A. L. Seeley, Wm. Camel, Jacob Cummins, and Wm. H. Ingham. The story of their trip to Tuttle's Lake and Fairmount will be published next week. Of what occurred at home Ambrose A. Call has written a very full and entertaining account, which we take from the county history: "The people of this settlement got the first news of the massacre from the Fort Dodge mail carrier some two weeks after its occurrence; immediately following came reports of a general Indian war, the near proximity of large bands of Indians, other massacres and fights on different parts of the frontier. The snow was mostly gone, and the streams and sloughs all bank full of water, with no bridges or boats, which made travel almost impossible, and added to the fear and panic of the settlers. Placards were posted up in the older parts of the state calling for volunteers and stating that Algona and Fort Dodge had been laid in ashes, and a company was actually raised at Des Moines and another in Boone county to march to the relief of Webster City. The settlers north and west of us had all fled, and some for 100 miles south and east. The air was filled with rumors, every stranger was viewed with suspicion, and if seen on the prairie was run down and captured as an Indian spy. Cranes were magnified into Indians, prairie fires were mistaken for Indian camp fires, and the very howling of the April winds sent a chill of horror to the hearts of mothers as they clung closer to their babes and strained every nerve to catch the stealthy, tread of a savage. Under these circumstances it is not strange that a large number of the settlers, who had families, fled, and some never returned. Those who remained got together and decided to fortify and fight it out. A stockade was decided upon to be built under the direction of Judge Call and H. A. Hen- The Bancroft Register comments on the $5,000 damage suit against the Bancroft State bank and Chas. R. Morehouse and says: We interviewed Cashier Sherman on the subject, and from what he is at liberty to say it seems there is not very much in the case aside from the attorney fees. Schemmerhorn owed the State bank $500, as we understand it, and early in '93 he sold his farm and belongings and moved away. His going was modest and unpretentious . and his neighbors knew not whither he went. Mr. Morehouse was not the one to have the bank lose the sum due from him, so he had Mr. Schemmerhorn indicted and Sheriff Graham put on his trail, He was followed to four Iowa towns and then to three Montana towns where he adopted, for convenience sake, a new name. Mr. Graham finally located democrats are in session today to Choose delegates for the Marshalltawn i week, Their attitude free coinage question, will he before pur readers get their pa- •Sfhjre will he a genteel in the state con- The Register says a philosophical thing; "There is nothing like an editor having a lively sensation and appreciation of the fact that he has been licked." An editor is only one of the thousands of people. He must take '-pot luck" with the crowd. He must go through life on the theory that he can stand what the rest can. If the majority is going his way he can rejoice over th.e triumph of sound principles and correct practices. If he happens to find himself there is for it is isolated in his views all to accept the situation. Obstinate adherence to something the people won't adopt is no sign of superior virtue or intelligence, it is an outcropping of atavism which dates bapk to the mule. The world will listen to any man long enough to fin4 out what his idea is, If it don't want it be might as well move on, Jt won't listen to him any longer, in any event with patience, and if he persists is likely to kick him off the doorstep. In the him and wired to have him" detained. The authorities followed instructions and placed him in jail, where he had to remain one night and until the next noon, when the sheriff arrived. It is for this short imprisonment that the attorneys want $5,000, OOST OF AN ENCAMPMENT. The National Guard Have to Have Big Snppiies-Wnat It Costs verly ana Centerville. Waverly, which is to entertain the two north regiments of the state Aug. 17 to 24, gives $400 in cash, furnishes 320 acres of ground for the camp, 50 head of horses daily, lumber needed, lights, 250 barrels of water daily, teams derson, both of whom had seen service in the Indian country. Couriers volunteered to go below for a supply of ammunition; these were Abe Hill, H F.Watson and W. Skinner. Experienced frontiersmen on fleet horses were sent out beyond the settlements, as scouts, to warn the settlers of the approach of Indians. Borne of our best scouts and frontiersmen, including W. H. Ingham and A. L. Seeley, were absent when the news first reached our settlement. " The settlers living in the southern end of the county also built a stockade at Irvington. This was built of two inch oak plank, doubled, the end set in a trench. This stockade was about 50 feet square, with port holes and bastions. The supposition was that the building of these stockades would give to the settlers a feeling of security and keep many in the country who otherwise would leave, and in case of a threatened attack upon the settlement could be readily occupied and easily defended by the settlers. The Algona stockade was six rods square, built of two inch plank, doubled, and small logs split in halves, the flat sides lapped together and set in a trench two feet deep, which left the wall eight feet high above the ground. Port holes were made every four feet, and bastions on the northwest and southeast corners a secure double gate in the north end and a well near the center, The Algona stockade was built around the site of the town hall (Congregational church). Its building occupied nearly the whole population about two weeks, The mill housed Und 1 riftdy tddetead..

After this scare the settlers began to lose fath in indiafl stories, and returned to their homes. When the condition of the streams afid sloughs would permit travel We found there were no Indians in the country, those committing the massacre at Spirit Lake having fled to the Westward. The stockade remained as built several years, and wns finally pulled dow« and used for road plank." BOAT LANDING; AT OKOBOJI. Judge Quartern to tteaP an Injitflc" tiott Case Today Involving That Issue, Judge Quartern is back from Oskaloosa and is today hearing an interesting case from Okoboji, It involves the right of steamers on the lake to stop at private landings against the owner's wishes, The case has arisen out of some trouble between Arnold of Arnold's Park and the boat captains, and he has secured a temporary injunction against their stopping on his water front, which is now quite a stretch along the east shore of the lake. A permanent injunction is asked for. The facts in the case are not known, nor the claims of either side. But the boatmen will undoubtedly claim that they have a prior right on the water, while the land owners will assert that their ownership of the shore gives them control of their landings. Lawyers Cory and Francis are here to argue the case. Next Monday D. F. Coyle of Humboldt will be up to argue a tile drainage question. A land owner there objects to his neighbor putting a tile ditch across his land and has taken a temporary injunction. Fonda lawyers will also be here on probate matters. THE POOLS NOT ALL DEAD. One of Them Confesses that He Is In the iilst, But Stops Short at Publishing His Xante. In the evening after the races a plainly dressed farmer about 40 years of age knocked at 'Squire Clarke's residence. After the usual salutations he explained that he had toyed with the chuck luck board at the race track, the result being that he had spent $60 of his own money and $20 that he had borrowed of a capper. 'Squire Clarke commiserated with him and asked him what he could do for him. "I didn't know but you might help me get it back," was_ the reply. Coming down town Sheriff Samson's services were secured and inquiry was begun. In a very brief space of time it was discovered that the chuck luck men had gone at 6 o'clock, and that any chance of recovery was as thin as the original chance of winning at the game had been. Up to this point the man had not been asked his name, but now 'Squire Clarke was curious to know who he was. The reply was emphatic and sensible: "I've been a fool, BAttBY mt m RACES, Tie Editorial GFealas of SHtt Says Al* jrotia is ft Town of dultfire Beans. If e.

Britt's horse could not run a half-mile-fast enough to do any harm in the class he was in; he set the track on fire the first quarter and gave it a chance to cool off the second. Algona is a good city, not for a horse race, but for beans and culture, and bean culture.

The races were as fine single dashes as any one could wish to see; they were run on fine day and the small crowd in attendance were all repaid for their time and trouble. The reader will notice that we mix 'politics with this race track report. We have to do this, politics being always on tap in Algona', nothing goes unless sugar coated with them. A. D. Clarke stands a very good chance for the nomination as senator, and would make a good one, a credit to Kossuth county and acceptable to everybody else. We recommend the race track committee to get some Australian ballot booths and set them up on the fair ground the next race they have. If anything will bring them out it's a chance to vote. Prof. Hinchon of the Algona Courier is postmaster, and the way he toadies to Mr. Cleveland surprises the democrats of Jeffersonian simplicity. He squirms around trying to find something good to say of the administration and has had to lay awake several nights to think of anything of that kind. He lies about republican legislation in regulation manner, while Bros. Starr and Ingham allow him to do so without protest. This is entirely wrong.; They ought to go to work and annihilate him,, and burn him at the stake, biat he don't, attend horse races either, just simply draws odious comparisons, inferences, and his salary, and lets nature take its course. We don't see how he can expect to make the Courier a true exposition of morality and virtue and sit around and not know, whether Ida Mr- drew the pole in the first heat, or how Billy Mack hustled on the back stretch. But he sat sawing away at those same hoary old lies that have delighted the democratic heart for lo, these many days; politically a great deal like a tadpole, knowing that a transformation is sure to take place with a delightful uncertainty as to whether a tail to steer with or feet to kick with are preferable. The race track committee is hereby notified that extra copies of the Tribune can be had this* week, and we have honestly tried to 1 mix enough politics in this report so 1 they can get Algona people notified that races were run at their fair ground! the Chinese ironclad Chen a comment on memorable en, the_ Distinguished naval ori CUBE FOB HEADACHE, for all forms of i t T ---— 7 ~ has proved to be the very best.
