With this as a ruling motive we , are denied the privilege of playing the free lance and making the most of sensational local-developments." This is a high ideal, perhaps too high. People want the ins and outs of everything worth reporting even to a prize fight. But it an ideal Senator Funk has steadily held in view, and SB he says he has not been a martyr on that account, for no paper has a better or more steadfast constituency than the Beacon. In conclusion he says: " If these lakes with their many fathoms Of water remain in their respective places this summer resort cannot be extinguished. True we have been somewhat injured by cranks, but they are newspaper cranks in the main." WARREN and Madison counties have ten votes apiece in the senatorial convention and each has a candidate. Neither would consent to cross the county line for a place of meeting 'and accordingly the convention was held in the woods, the Warren county dele 1 gates in Warren county, and the Madison county delegates in Madison county. After balloting two days they have adjourned until Sept. 24. The Warren county candidate is Senator Price, who changed his vote on the Algona normal school in that ever memorable tie vote in the senate, and so beat the Al., gonabill. We hope they leave him , -out in the woods on the county line. < .CHARLES E. RICE, who was nominated for superior judge in the exciting Pennsylvania republican convention last- week, is youngest brother of Paniel Bice and Mrs. C. A. Ingham of this place. He was not a Quay man, and was appointed to the bench by Gov. Hastings, who was Senator Quay's especial opponent. Quay won in the - "bitterest fight known to Pennsylvania politics, but to prevent a split in the party made a compromise by which Gov. Hastings was made permanent chairman of the convention, and by which the judges appointed by the governor were nominated. When the • time came for nominations Senator Quay arose and said: "I am satisfied, while I have my prejudices in this fight, that it is for the best interests of the republican party that the ^nominees of our governor for the ^.superior court he the choice of this con' vention. I will, therefore, though it may be unprecedented, move that James A. .Beaver of 'Center; Howard J. Reeder, Northampton: John J. Wickham, Beaver; George B. Orlady, Huntington; Charles E. Bice, Luzerne; and E. N. Willard, Lacka, -wanna, be declared the nominees of this convention." Mr, Bice has been for nearly 20 years judge of the Wilkesbarre city court. His term of office in his new position, if the republican ticket is ' Delected, as there is no question that it [ ,.,t^vill be, will be 10 years. Under Gov. 1 Hastings' appointment he was made : presiding judge and will so sit until f January. Whether he will continue in thpt position after the new judges are elected is not decided, C. W.

Speaking of the Htiniboldt'Poca- hotitas deadlock the Record say8! "the Pocahontas delegation wanted to draw straws, cut cards, or flip dollars for the nomination, but knmboldt refused. Then our delegation wanted to adjoufn without making a nomination and let it be decided by the primary system, but they refused to do that." Either of these plans is more sensible than the foolish hanging out over nothing now being indulged in. The Des Moines Capital speaks of J. H, Warren's death and says: " He was a man of splendid newspaper ability." NEWS AND COMMENT. Every report seems to confirm the impression that the Iowa soldiers' monument is to be a cheap John affair. The site is the most unsightly that could have been chosen. The face of the monument is to be covered with medallions of Iowa men, and it is rumored that activity in present manipulations rather than valor at the front has bad to do with the selection. A body of civilians was 'chosen to be pictured welcoming the returning warriors, and among them was John F. Buncombe. As soon as this was known a protest arose which has led the committee to discard the features. of actual lowans and to allo.v the civilians to be represented by'ideal heads. Finally the committee is in grave doubt whether the figure topping the column should be nude or not, the question being according to Burrell whether a nude figure is appropriate to our winter climate. It is to be hoped the monument when completed will be more imposing than it promises, and more of a credit to the artistic taste of the west. At Montgomery, Alabama, the confederates have erected a magnificent shaft to commemorate the lost cause. Its dedication marked the farewell rally of the grislcd veterans of the gray. Jefferson Davis made his last public appearance during the ceremony. The monument stands on a commanding hill a few rods from the state capitol, to be seen from every part of the city. The only inscription or mark on its enisled sides are these simple numerals, "1861-1805." Considered in connection with the grand proportions of the shaft, and the magnitude of the cause it commemorates, there is a dignity and power in this simple inscription which makes it a master stroke of artistic genius. In the New Orleans cemetary a monument to the confederate dead is almost equally free from bedizonment, capped by the soldierly figure of an ideal rebel private. Simplicity is as difficult for amateur artists as for amateur dressmakers, but simplicity is art and It is higher art just in proportion as the cause to be commemorated in marble is in itself grand and inspiring. 0. B. Matson writes from Rojla and describes a cave near his new town: "A party of 15 Rolla people went out last Thursday about 12 miles northwest of this place, to see the celebrated saltpeter cave, arid Mr, Evans and myself were included in the number. The cave is supposed to penetrate the hills several miles, but we were content with what we could see in about one mile. Some of .the rooms in the cave were once very beautiful, but the vandalism of pleasure seekers has made them mere ruins." THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. Grant and Galena, an illustrated paper, by Leigh Leslie, in the September Midland Monthly, Des Moines, tells for the first time the inwardness of Grant's loyalty to James F. Wilson, and of his break with Washburn, Gen. Johnson of St, Paul, who commanded a division at Chiokamauga, and Col.

The great variety of the topics so dramatically treated makes each instal- ment of new interest to did reader* and also attracts the attention of newer circles. This IS well illustrated by the Splendid instalment which leads the September number of Scribner's. • ***• The Atlantic Monthly for September contains the first installment of a, three- part story, by Charles Egbert Craddock. entitled The Mystery of Witch-Face Mountain, The second of Dr. John Flake's historical papers has for a Subject John Smith ih Virginia, in which he reopens vigorously the discussion in regard to this interesting character. INTfilS KEtQHBO&flOOD. Forest City wants to get a company of national guards. Henry Stivers, ex-editor of the State Leader, is to become editorial writer on the Webster City Graphic. Armstrong Journal: Araie Peugnet and John Flemming were in Algona Sunday to visit some of that town's exceedingly pretty girls. Emmetsburg Beporter: Chas. Cohenour, of the firm of Clarke & Cohenour of Algona, was looking after court business in Emmetsburg on Monday, LuVerne News! The "rocking chair soap man," like the "electric lights" of Algona, dazzles the eyes of his victims, and they immediately become bewildered. We have seen the "soap man." The Emmetsburg Beporter repudiates the old testament on lot drawing but says nothing about the Iowa statutes.- This is an unfair discrimination Bob Ingersoll would hardly be guilty of. The Clay County News credits Bro. Starr's learned exposition of the scriptures on lot drawing to the Estherville Bepubli'can. Who would ever suspect Ed. Jenkins of it? Honor where honor is due. Bert Mathews has bought Mrs. H. McDonald's farm northeast of Burt. We have not interviewed him yet as to his intentions. We can assure him, however, that a bachelor has a hard row to hoe farming. Mrs. Bev. Groom, wife of one of of Algona's old-time circuit riding Methodist pastors, stepped through a broken plank on the depot platform at Britt. and was slightly hurt. The railway company paid her $25. Homer Miller, president of the Citizens' State bank of Eagle Grove, was recently offered the presidency of a prominent bank in Des Moines, but preferred to remain at his present home. He is at present state bank examiner. Mrs. D. W. Burlingameand daughter, Ethel, of Emmetsburg expect to spend the corning winter and spring on the Pacific coast. The Tribune says Ethel, who sang in Algona lately, is not in good health and wtfl go for the climate. Monticellp Express: THE UPPER DES MOINES of Algona has become tired of gratuitously booming church sociables and catch penny affairs that depend upon the newspaper to drum up a crowd, and it has the nerve to declare that it will hereafter publish no notices of pay entertainments of any kind except at regular rates. Bailey: When the blooming bloomer bloometh, how the girls who miss the chance of " wheeling out in costume" pant great soulful pants for pants. They rather think them naughty but they're awful sure they're nice, for when fastened at the bottom they protect them safe from mice, and the whichness of the muchness serves to lighten up the gloom when the blooming bloomeresses bloom and bloom and bloom and bloom. Humboldt Independent: Miss Eva and Katie Lantry of Algona are visiting this week with their friends the young Hacks. The Hack home is a jolly place now Miss Bertha Tellier of Algona vipited friends and relatives in Humboldt this week. Surveyor C. A.

Is the world beCOnlittg better? Is what Bro. firafiigrin of the ftmmets* burg Democrat wants to know, Me thinks perhaps !t is, "but it the rdyal reception given by the citizens of Algona, Enimetsbufg and Estherville to the women in pantaloons, is any criterion, society is making peace with the outcast, and virtue is condescending to vice." He then continues to moralize as follows: Algona gave them a $175 audience—three times the size of the one that greeted the gifted John J. Ingalls at that place but three months before. Emmetsburg gave them as creditable an audience as enjoyed cultured Watterson, eloquent Bristoll, or profound Joseph Cook. Estherville ana Ft. Dodge did even better and gave them a perfect ovation. And who are those bloomers, that they should have been given such marked attention and such generous patronage? Were they prodigies on the diamond, and as such, favorites with those who so richly enjoy the great national game? Not by any means. The little boys who played with them could easily have kept them in the field until nightfall. Were they beautiful, or graceful, or pleasing, or captivating? Far from it. Were they recognized because of their intelligence, their virtue, or their possession of the charms of true womanhood? Ah I here's the rub. The public was not imposed upon. Their reputation had gone before them. Their conduct at Lost Island, during the game and subsequent to it, fully justified the unfavorable reports that had gone out concerning them.' It shocked the sensibilities of the lowest present, and that was bad enough. The full particulars of the incidents that took place were known in this and neighboring towns the same evening. They did not entertain the people of Algona or Emmetsburg as strangers.' All that has since been said about them was known long before they came. Even Bro. Mayne had heard of them, and to his honor let it be said that he did not remain in town to see them play ball. Appearances were fully as convincing as reports. Their hardened faces and their bold, penetrating eyes revealed the assurance that sin had no surprises for them. The leering, shameless glances they gave as they passed along the streets no son of Emmet, Palo Alto or Kossuth could fail to understand. If they behaved themselves on the Emmetsburg diamond, it was because they dreaded the legal penalties their conduct at Lost Island had merited. But this resolution for better behavior did not long remain in force. The scenes that followed at the hotel at which they stopped were such that the landlord— a most tolerant gentleman—had to threaten at midnight to throw the entire outfit into the street in order to preserve an air of respectability about the house. With due respect for the motives and the considerations of all, these were the women whom the best people of Algona, Emmetsburg and Estherville turned out in thousands to honor by their presence. Those were the women who succeeded in reaping such a financial harvest where weeks of labor, zeal and industry were required in order to secure the services of the best oratorical and literary representatives of our age. Had the patronage accorded been furnished from the inferior grades of society, the result would not have been so surprising. But it was not. Numerous dignified gentlemen, real ladies—both old and and young, business and professional people, teachers, officers, social stars, leaders of reforms, and church goers were on hand to witness the afternoon performances, All classes, grades and organizations were fully represented, OLD SOLDIER MEETINGS, Veterans par to the Grand Army Meeting at lyomevJUe-Tbe Eagle Grove Reunion, Mayor Haggard goes to Webster City Saturday to join Commander Thompson's train for Louisville, He is color bearer on the state staff, Dp, McCoy, C, A, Brewster^, and some others will attend from tbe county, G, W., Eddy of Wesley, goes as delegate, TOTS THIRTY-SECOND IOWA.

But the Bloomers had points that neither the taws or prints could claim, and now the Court house ring and real estate taen have added a side degree to the order, They met about 4 o'clock, No one seems to know when they quit, but somewhere about 9 o'clock in the darkness and rain 18 of our citizens were seen straggling up town in various stages of lameness and weariness. That part of the game which occurred while it was light enough for the umpire to see the ball occupied about four innings. But the whole nine were played out, if heretofore trusted witnesses can be believed. The real estate men were the best talkers and made the most noise but the politicians were the best runners, and in base ball as in politics the best runner wins. The first inning was merely a warming up heat. The second began with the politicians in the field distributed as follows: Mart.' Weaver, pitcher; Irving Dodge, catcher; C. C. Samson, first base; B. F. Grose, second base; Will Brunson, third base; F. D. Calkins, right field; M. F. Bandall, center field; Arthur Tellier, left field; M. E. Schleicher, short stop. Mart, had a determined look when he twirled the ball, but J. S. Platt, who came to bat first, swiped it over to Randall and got to second in pretty fair shape. But on his way to third he showed that the land men were not runners. His knees began to waver, then to-give down and about half way he came flat on his face. Frank Grose meanwhile had rolled the ball along the ground after him for fear of throwing it clear over the fence,' and it got to third ahead of him and he was out. Mart, then got three strikes on Geo. Bailey, but Dodge didn't hold the third and he got his base. Then Chandler fanned out. Then Chas. Doxsee planted himself on the home plate and made a two base hit. But Danson made the air whistle three times, without any perceptible effect on the ball and the side was out. The real es'tate men took the field with Gus. Peek pitcher, Frank Chandler catcher, J. S. Platt first, Geo.

Dodge went to bat and made a dent in the ball at the first wipe, and got three bases, all the land men after the ball in a bunch. Then Samson, Weaver, and Schleicher got first in order, when Frank Grose came to the scratch. Frank was a little turned around at first and swung about so as to drive the ball twice right into the crowd behind him. But after that he got his bearings and made two bases. Frank ran as though this was his year to run and was caught at second. Calkins, Brunson, and Tellier took first, and Dodge came to bat again. He and Samson got around, but Weaver was caught out at first and so ended the inning. The third inning the land men wore an air of determination. Butler made a two base hit, and Geo. C. Call came up. At first he hit the ball on the end of his bat, but the second time he made a bee line for Grose, who stopped it, but Call ran like a ball player and got first. Then Melzar Haggard put a fly over by Bandall's field but he was looking the other way and didn't notice it until he heard it drop. Peek batted the ball into Samson's shins and got first, Then Bice got a chance to call three strikes on a ball that passed the catcher and he made first. Then Platt made a two base bit, and Mart, wiped his face and yelled to the score keeper "is anyone out?" And an unsympathetic voice in the crowd responded, "you never will get anybody out." But this proved untrue for shortly tbe politicians doubled teams and made a famous double play. Danson batted a foul over to third base, Brunson got his hands under it, but the ball bounded put and Sohleioher ran up and caught it as it was falling. Then another succession of base hits, Butler, Call, and Haggard. The latter sent a fly to Calkins but he stepped in a bole and fell down just at the critical moment. Grose and Samson put Peek out at first, Bice made a, hit, and'.Platt made a little hit, but stopped to take off his hat so as to run better and got left a,t first, The last half of tbe inning was shorter than tbe first. Bice was pitcher and be put on curves six and eight feet wide insomuch that tbe crowd scattered several rods from borne plate. Sobleioher got bis base on balls Inter Ocean describes the face: says! Ever since the Iowa flyer started in training the knowing ones 'have predicted that his record, and possibly the- 100 yards, would go down before the young sprinter in yesterday's trials. If Crum ever had any doubt as to his popularity in Chicago he has^ banished it from his mind. The hundred yards. was the first event of the program, and as soon as the crowd catight a glimpse of the starters and among them the* powerful figure of the loWa athlete with his little yellow cap, such a chorus of cheers went up as has seldom been heard on the grounds. The 220-yard run was one of the last of the track events, and only one heat was needed to decide it. It had been announced that after the final heat was run a special attempt would be made by the winner to lower the world's- record for the distance with a turn. Perry and Eiszner had entered, but evidently saw that the pace would be too hot for them and withdrew, leaving- the four stars, Crum and Jackson of the- C. A. A., Holland the St. Louis representative, and Maybury of the University of Wisconsin, who pushed Crum so hard at the last intercollegiate meet. Crum got a rather slow start and for a time was on about equal terms with .Maybury and Jackson. After he had run about half the distance he began his spurt, and with that peculiar little side motion, he drew rapidly ahead. Maybury for a while pressed him hard, but the pace was too hot, and he ran his heart but, finishing a poor second. Holland was distanced early and. dropped out. D. H. Jackson finished third. As Crum came down the stretch it was easily seen that he was coming in record time, and the way in which he drew • away, from his competitors showed the marvelous power he possesses. Four of the judges caught the time 0:21 4-5, and there can be no doubt as to the record. . Sporting Notes. Come out Friday and see the court house men and land men have it out. An Emmetsburg horse, Frank Potts, won third money in the 2:25 pace at Independence in heats as fast as 2:114. The purse was $1,000. The horse is a four-year-old. At Spirit Lake the Bloomers refused to give those who played ball with them a percentage of the gate receipts. The boys attached the money and forced them to a settlement. The Forest City Summit says Schirmer of the Emmetsburg team nearly got the ball game up there into a free- for-all fight. It says he commenced a windy war from the outset. Sohirmer was evidently feeling good. . en and ran on Randall was around to put out at third, But first, Grose made a two base bit, and Calkins went out at first, and Brunson ran so fast on bis hit for second tbat be couldn't stop and the ball was placed on him while he was out in the field.

It is not unlikely that the courts will be called upon to determine the rights of wheelmen. About 8 o'clock at night Allen Cook, a member of the L. A.
