Many have assumed that the disappearance of the free silver "craze" /would end the currency debate. The gradually fading gold reserve at Washington, however, suggests that the real question is still to be met. The go vern- ment is trying to do business on a basis no safe private institution would adopt, and is failing at it, and will continue to fail at it whatever becomes of the 16 to 1 idea. The country now has In round numbers 1,800 millions of dollars in money of which one-third is gold. A private bank which held itself liable to redeem every dollar of this currency in gold would want the whole 600 millions of gold for a reserve. No hank does business on a smaller reserve than one-third of its deposits! But the government does not have and cannot get the 600 millions of gold, and is holding itself liable to redeem every dollar in circulation with 100 millions of gold or less—an absurdity on its face. No government on earth nor other busi- 1 ness institution can meet its obligations on a reserve of one-eighteenth. In times of public confidence and especially when the public revenues are large our money system may be stable enough even on such a shaky basis, JBut the least uncertainty, the slightest failing off of revenue, the slightest de- nmnd for gold by foreign countries and the whole cobhouse of our currency will come tumbling down again, If tomorrow morning the dailies should report the shipment'of 20 millions of gold to England, all business would come to a standstill. Any one of a dozen New York speculators can withdraw 20 millions of'gold when it is to his interest, The country will be at the mercy of bp»d speculators just as long as gold i is the reserve fund of the govern- and panics yrill ccme just as of ten HOTEL ORLEANS' BAtt. Democratic papers attempt to make a point against the mulct law by ridiculing the prosecution of the Hotel Orleans. The hotel could and would have been prosecuted exactly the same under any liquor law the democrats have proposed in late years. It as unlikely that Dickinson county or Spirit Lake would legalize drinking bars under local option of the democratic kind as under the mulct law. The closing of this bar, which so long as the statute so provides is right and proper, affords no argument against the mulct which it would not afford against any liquor law the democrats promise to enact. The argument, if any is to be drawn, is against the whole local option theory. The absurdity of this prosecution, if there is any, arises from the existence of legalized saloons all about the hotel. Over at Estheryille twelve miles away " Beer" in big letters confronts the citizen from the bell tower of the old school house. At Emmetsburg twenty-five miles away seven saloons are required to meet the demand. There is exactly as much reason, and as summer resorts are accorded some privileges, "more reason why the Hotel Orleans should be allowed to sell liquor than any institution in either town. It is a farce to prosecute one while the others are protected by law, and no legislative legerdemain and no "local sovereignty" doctrines can make anything else out of it. ' Iowa is in need of some real statesmanship on the liquor question. It is time the political game "of battledore and shuttlecock came to an end. The coming legislature should contain some aspirant for the commendation of posterity who will devise a law which will be state-wide in operation, will wipe out the present saloon system, and will provide for the reasonable sale of intoxicants in a manner to remove the element of private profit from the traffic. After fifteen years of agitation Iowa should not be leading the rear in the matter of intelligent dealing with this problem. stilb frould llk<§ to know Metfadr his views &fiy. AtfD COMMENT.

It will appear as a serial in The Century, beginning with November. How ridiculous a political newspaper can make itself is shown by such a paragraph as this from the Sioux City Tribune ; " Where was Funk when the Hqtel Orleans was raided? Wherever he was, he should be held responsible for the destruction of the summer resort industry of the state. He has preached prohibition for years and is now the nominee of the republican party for senator in that district upon a distinct record of favoring prohibition in the constitution. He ought to be defeated. His defeat would mean more than a personal loss. It would be a lesson which every member of the next general assembly would take seriously to heart. Let Funk stay at home this year and devote his energies to the restoration of the business of Spirit Lake, which this raid has so seriously injured." If anything more absurd than that ever appeared in Iowa it should be exhibited at the state fair, The democratic Iowa City Press introduces one of Mayor Vollmer's sample paragraphs of bad English and vulgarity as follows: "English as she is spoke in Scott county, by Vulgaris Vollmer, the ass pre-eminent of a crowd that is always an unplaceable quantity in politics, and for sale to the highest bidder."

It is to be hoped that he will again enter the field journalistic .and that It will be near enough to his old friends to get even with them 'in some future senatorial convention. - ; -*+• The Hotel Orleans will open quickly enough if the Milwaukee company begins a big hotel at Okoboji next spring.

Last Thursday the sealed boxes with the 2,500 names of possible jurors in them were brought out, and with all due ceremony Auditor Cal,kins drew the cards and handed them to Recorder Randall, who read them. Clerk Crose duly recorded them in his book. The result was that while a few have Algona for postofflce address, not one is a resident of the town. Wesley came out ahead with six claiming that as their postomce. The rest are scattered over the county pretty evenly No grand jurors were drawn, as both Judges Quarton and Thomas have ruled that the old. grand jury shall serve out their year. The names now drawn go to a new box and will not be used again till the original 2,500 have all been called. Algeria's chance comes in when the talesmen are called. Half the Algona names are kept in a separate box and when the regular panel is exhausted in any case new men are drawn from this box of Algonians. The jurors drawn are as follows: John Longbottom, Wesley; James Godden, Burt; C, T. Pitcher, Elraore; Geo. Aman, Sexton; L, W, Henderson, Algona; Thos, Jugem, Bode; E. L, Meyers, Algona; A.

Last week we noted the death of the oldest brother of Daniel Rice and Mrs. C, A, Ingham. The Little Falls Journal and Courier gives a brief sketch of his career which will be of interest to many old settlers who had met him and knew his son, Ingham, who was teller of the Kossuth County State bank 20 odd years ago. The Journal and Courier says: In the death of Mr. Rice, Herkimer county, and especially the town of Fairfield, have lost a valued citizen and his immediate neighbors a wise counselor and a public spirited, conscientious man. Mr. Rice was born in the town of Salisbury on the 26th day of March, 1827. He was the eldest son of Thomas A. and Vienna C. Rice; both will be remembered by the older residents of Fairfield, and were widely known in northern Herkimer county as fearless pioneers in every good work. In early life Mr. Rice removed with his parents to the town of Fairfield, where he has since resided, and where on Saturday evening of last week he finished his life work, as peacefully yielding up the trust bestowed of God, his eyes were closed in death. He was educated at Fairfield academy, of which institution he was for many years a trustee and a warm friend and patron. A man of ripe judgment and sterling honesty, his fellow citizens have often conferred upon him the responsibility of political trust. He held the office of commissioner, of highways for three years, was justice of the peace for 12 years, and supervisor of the town of Fairfield for three consecutive terms. In the fall of 1871 the republican party, of which he was a zealous member, nominated him for the assembly, to which office he was elected by_ a majority of 1,063, his competitor being the late Wm. Getman of Newport. So faithfully and well did he discharge his duties at Albany that his constituents renominated and reelected him the succeeding year by a majority of 1,101, his opponent being the late Geo. A. Feeter of Little Falls. Mr. Rice was married in 1851 to Miss Sarah A. Ingham, who died Sept. 18. 1891. Four children survive them: Ingham C. Rice, a resident of this town Mrs. M. W. Van Auken of Utica, Edward C. Rice of New York City, and Clarence W, Rice of Utica. In 1871 Mr, Rice united with the M. E. church in Fairfield, since which time he has been a cheerful giver of both means and labor. In 1864 he with D. C.Wilson, Charles and Seymour Jackson, George Pickert, Wm. Lamberson, Jairus Mather and Milton Ford, organized the old Fairfield cheese factory, which has attained almost a world wide reputation, and of which association Mr. Rice was salesman for 29 years. In January, 1894, at his request he was relieved of this care after having faithfully served his associates for nearly a third of a century. Mr. Rice was largely instrumental in organizing the Little Falls National bank, of which institution he was a charter member and vice president up to the day of his death. But it was as the private citizen, the kind neighbor, and the affectionate father that the true worth of Mr. Rice was most parent. Only a few short weeks ago and his familiar form was seen in our midst. If PHIAL OlS TUESDAY. Ill AM'Atijfetoefits Than five* Before fo? a cessftti School Yea*.

In his life plan no obstacle deterred him, no labor was too great for him to undertake and perform. He died panoplied in the armor of Many broad fields bear evidence of his thoughtful care and many a blade of grass has sprung up to bless the hand that gave it life, The deep interest manifested by Mr. Rice in beautifying our village cemetery is indeed a fitting monument to his memory— a graceful tribute to his worth. "Afterlife's fitful dream he sleeps well." The world is better for his life. He has left a rich legacy to his family and this community which time cannot efface. The end was peaceful. He retained his consciousness to the last and with whispered words gave his blessing to the fainilv he loved so well. There was no "fear when the great ordeal came, Clothed in the faith of a joyous reunion with Wife, children, brother and sisters gone before, he waited patiently for the last great change, fearing no evil, for His rod and His staff comforted him, As the western hills were bathed in the glow of golden summer sunset his life work, well rounded up with rich treasures earned, he turned his tired head upon his pillow and. fell asleep. Closing: of the Institute. Thursday afternoon the closing exercises of the teachers' institute were held at the Congregational church and addresses were made by Profs. Gilchrist, Rich and Crowe. At the close Prof. Buker read some resolutions which spoke in high terms of the institute, the instructors, and of Supt. Reed. In the evening Miss Lucia Gale Barber gave the closing entertainment to a crowd which jammed the. church. It was better than she gave last year, and that is praise enough. Miss Kate Smith and Mrs. Maud Jones- furnished the music. The general examination came Friday and Saturday and over 100 teachers attended to discover how much' they had learned. A Handsome Clock for Supt. Heed. The closing exercises of Thursday afternoon were interrupted by an< incident not down on- the program. Following the reading of the teachers' resolutions Miss Caroll Neilson arose and with very laudatory references to Supt. Reed's work she presented him in the name of the teachers a $25 marble clock. This proved to be one of the few occasions when the superintendent was overcome, but he rallied shortly and made some closing remarks in thanks to the teachers and about the institute and the work of the schools. It was a pleasant closing to- a successful session. One on Prof. Lilly. Prof. Lilly had charge of arithmetic- and grammar in the Hancock county teachers' institute. He also led the singing in the morning exercises, which accounts for what follows. He opened his book one morning to the hymn, "O Brethren, Rise and Sing," and struck out, but the institute being composed almost wholly of ladies no one responded. Another teacher suggested that he start it "O sisters, rise and sing," but another got off the old joke about the brethren embracing the sisters, and the ladies were satisfied and the song went on.
