THE State Register says regarding • the suggestion that some one'get up a liquor law abolishing the saloon and providing for the sale of liquors without profit to the seller: '^ Let's wait awhile before we embark on- another experiment." And the Spirit Lake Beacon flays: " It is not assuming any risk to say that these conditions will not be met by the coming .general assembly nor by any of its successors of this generation." The Register and Beacon may both be right, but every recurring incident like the closing of the Hotel Orleans' bar and its attendant discussion indicates that the time is ripe for directing public opinion into new channels, and we are confident that public opinion so directed will find expression in legislation long before this generation winks but.

DoWN at Dubuque every prisoner arraigned challenged the grand jury on the ground that It was not drawn in accordance with the new law. The first challenge was made by the author of the new law, Judge Powers. Most of the judges have held with Attorney General Remley that the old grand juries are legal. But it is an open question. A PREACHER down at Waterloo, taking a text about women not wearing men's clothing, created a sensation Sunday by denouncing the bloomer, which he described as "abbreviated trousers, scant in cloth and tied with a string, an abomination unto the lord and to the infinite disgust of man." This seems to be a fit description e"x- ceptingonly as to the scantiness of cloth. There is a fullness about the bloomer that,, suggests anything but scarcity of material. THE Iowa Homestead grew into a wonderfully prosperous paper, built a fine block in Des Moines, and was credited at one time with having a morning daily in view.

Humbotdt Independent: UH, Jane Walters of Algoha, one of the oldest settlers of Dakota and Humboldt, was a Very agreeable caller some days last week among many Mends she has here. Mrs, Walters was one whom tnafly people were in the early days indebted to for home comforts. Her hotel or bdarding house never turned anyone away hungry, and her motherly kindness was known far and wide. It seems that Victor B. Dolliver is slated on the matrimonial list. The Fort Dodge Times says: A further announcement is not made at this time, but the wise ones who remember a somewhat recent land deal in which a local agent transferred a large tract of land to a prominent resident of Iowa who has been honored by the Citizens of the state, may be prepared to name another of the daughters of Iowa in connection with the Dolliver home. DOLLIVEE'S NUPTIALS. Senator Funk: This will be the crowning act of a wisely ordered and well spent life. Des Moines Capital: Sidney A. Foster to Jonathan P.

The minstrel business did not pay and Al. worked the bill out in a accounts for many things. Al. learned to saw wood. saw mill. That There is where . SAM CLARK says Quay is a living .refutation of phrenology. From his description one would judge that Quay's head is not bigger tban a . billiard ball, and most of that is be- Jiind his ears. Quay is a little man, has a receding forehead, and is not prepossessing in appearance, but he is bold, resolute, ingenious, and successful in politics, and that too on a big ecale. J . THE Mason City Globe-Gazette says: Senator Funk, judging from newspaper comment, is the most popular senator throughout the state that has been nominated this year, and yet he had a long contest in the convention before he was chosen. It not infrequently happens that the man who gains state-wide favor and popularity is fought the hardest in his own Oistrict" The inference to be drawn from this is misleading and unfair to Senator Funk. He was not fought at home at Al}, and the, length of the convention did not grow out of any opposition to him whatever. He was up for' a third term in a district of five counties. He undoubtedly the second choice of of the counties, but three of them Bought there was a chance to nora- .-iaate a borne man.

Nor did we ever see a woman waltzing around town in her shirt sleeves with a cigar between her teeth. We have never seen a woman go fishing with a bottle in her hip pocket, sit on the damp ground all day and go home drunk at night. Nor have we ever seen a woman yank off her coat and swear she could lick any man in town. God bless her, she ain't built that way." Long haired Geo. Williams of Ida Groye "wrote up" Armstrong for local consumption and then wrote it down for his own paper. The Journal says the hotel proprietor will sue him. A better way is to trust to home talent for write-ups. The Sioux City public library circulated 8,164 books in August, Des Moines has levied a three mill tax to build a big public library building. J, Fred, Meyers tells what might have been done by Iowa in the way of a memorial for the veterans and then adds: But you can not make a silk purse from a sow's ear," Is it the commissioners or the legislature out of which no good can come?

Dolliver is going to be married. It took him a long time to make up his mind, but better late than never. Sioux City Journal: Congressman Dolliver evidently believes in the saying that in all that is-good Iowa affords the best. He has chosen an Iowa girl for a wife. Sac Sun: This will set at rest all rumors about his seeking the hand of a rich eastern widow. Iowa is proud of Dolliver, and he finds on Iowa girl good enough for him. Rolfe Reveille: After all these years of anxiety over our congressman. Hfon. J. P. Dolliver, our hearts are gladdened by the announcement that he is soon to take unto himself a wife. Des Moines Capital: Fort Dodge has climbed up to nearly 9,000. It's a good town. Dolliver is preparing:to do his duty now, and remembering the years he has put in complimenting the pretty babies, much is expected. Des Moines Daily News: Congress- Cousins would do well to follow Dolliver's example arid get himself engaged. Surely there must be some nice girl who would accept the handsome and talented Fifth district representative. Humboldt Independent: As the private matters of a congressman, like his public life, seem to be public property, we note his marriage for the enlightenment of our girls in .country precincts, 'who have been wont to cast longing eyes at our band- some congressman. Estherville Vindicator: When Congressman Dolliver was here to attend the editorial banquet he persisted in the statement that he had been busy all summer "fighting off a matrimonial rumor." He seems to have given up the fight since -and yielded to the inevitable. Emmetsburg Reporter: Mr. Dolliver has always been a firm believer in the home market theory, and we are glad to note that he bos put his theory into practice, and selected one of Fort Dodge's accomplished ladies for his bride. We presume that that new house will not now be rented. Carroll Herald: They do say that J. P. Dolliver, our distinguished congressman, is about to be married. The prospective bride is Miss Louise Pearsons of . Fort Dodge, a daughter of George R. Pearsons of that city. It is the wisest step Mr. Dolliver has ever taken, and ought to secure his return to congress for the fifth term by acclamation. Fort Dodge Post: Their courtship, if the authority of their friends is to be credited, began only this summer. Its commencement dates from the time that both were spending a brief season at the lakes. The wedding is announced to occur in the brown October days, and when the brilliant young congressman returns to his seat in congress next December it will be to receive the congratulations of his colleagues upon a greater achievement than be has ever won upon any political battlefield. ..*•.' Fort Dodge Times: It is with pardonable city pride that tbe people of Fort Dodge rejoice that the selection of a bride for the Tenth district congressman should be from among the daughters of the city, for although Miss Pearsons spent the years for the preparatory and collegiate course at Wellesley in the east, this pity is her family home. To the state at large ttoe announcement comes as a surprise, but to those familiar with the close intimacy existing between tne families',.' the announcement is but a pleasing confirmation. Fort Dodge Messenger: Not only does everybody congratulate them both on their good judgment, but there is, a feeling of additional satisfaction in the fact that the young congressman has passed through the vortex of Washington society and had the good sense to come out, in this as In all else, loyal to the product of Iowa, Miss Pearsons Is tbe only daughter of our well- known townsman, George R, Pearsons, an . , old resident here, She is a graduate of Wellesley, has been a teacher in the Northwestern University »t Evanston, JU., is a woman of fine intellectual gifts, Bad well " to ^?'Worthy helpmeet to Ijer 1 husband, A, Close can at Germanin, , Tbos.

And with all his bluntness, as the world saw him, ho word or act of his Was ever calculated to cause a pang of sorrow among the little band which survives him. Mis home was his Castle, and there was where his splendid traits were appreciated at their full worth Beneath the apparently rough exterior was •a heart that was always warm, and that never failed to go out In sympathy to those around him. The child who had a grief was ever conscious of his love and tender solicitude. That was how we knew our father, and those were among the things that cause Us to ever hold his memory dear. » w * * # He was essentially a pioneer. He early emigrated from his native state of New York to Ohio, there to blaze the way for a civilization that was to follow. In pursuance of an instinct which seemed to be a part of his nature he next went to Wisconsin when that state was a territory, being the first settler in Hubbard township, where he was married, and where he lived for several years. Later he lived at Arcadia and Eau Claire, in Wisconsin, but the rapid settlement of -these sections rekindled in him the desire for newer fields, and he came in 1866 to Iowa, Kossuth county being then a wilderness compared to its present marvelous development. His career here is chiefly known through his ownership of THE UPPER DES MOINES, which he edited from 1866 to 1875. As an editor he belonged to an older school than is now in charge of the- press in Iowa, and he numbered amongbis co-laborers at that time many who have since either " passed on" or retired from active newspaper work. Among those who are still in harness he had a warm personal friendship with the Clarksons, Geo. D. Perkins, Lafe Young, Matt Parrott, Jno. M. Brainard, W. H. Gallup, J. D. Hunter, and scores of others who have paid high tribute to his ability as a newspaper man. He was known as a vigorous and forceful writer, ever ready to defend the right as he saw the right, and never lacking the courage to express his opinions formed as the result of honest judgment. » * * * # In all that he did be was aggressive —sometimes we used to think too much so. This was notably the case in his work as editor. He had a hatred for sham in any form. He believed, with Burns, that "the rank is but the guinea's stamp," and with this as one of the tenets of his work he was prompt in bis denunciation of what to him seemed wrong doing in the acts of men in public or social life. He was removed from the Algona postofflce not so much— as has been said— because he held two federal offices, as because h's was one of the first newspapers to vigorously denounce Jackson Orr, then congressman of this district, for having taken the $5,000 back pay voted by congress, known at time as the "salary grab." The fact of his holding two federal offices was made use of to secure his removal from the postoffice, ' but his opinion of the congressman was in no wise changed, and he proved a factor in the retirement of Mr. Orr to private life. The possibility that personal discomfiture might come to him in consequence of his acts was never for a moment considered, and he wrote and published in accordance with the dictates of his conscience, He was an antagonist only in the sense that he was fearless in defense of his opinions. * # # # * Wfcen he bought THE UPPER DES MOINES, with no experience as a newspaper man and but little as a writer for the public press, there were those knowing ones who shook their heads and asked : " What does he know about running a newspaper?" His failure was predicted, of course; but if anything was calculated to spur him to more active effort it was this very fact. It was his nature to put his whole energy into whatever he undertook, and no ordinary obstacle stpod long in his way, He was not long in discovering that the' paper was not self-sustaining, .but with a zeal born of determination, rather than abandon a task once begun he resorted to the use of his mechanic's tools, with which enough of the coin of the realm was secured, from time to time, to meet the current expenses of family and newspaper, until such time as Kossuth county began to be more thickly populated and the paper was on a safe financial basis, But that was the character of the At a time when most mep would ttiglt U riiated, fcntaf will ftef *bs * # *** mm foas £888, fatdts"proves n&thteg M&&ft, that he Was httteafl; they afe* easily*:'f6rgqtte% ifi the li£ht6fH*ttahy vlftum'- Till -«^-•"« hbt b6 filled, but his meffl6>yi isned Itt the" heart* of those who him, will last as long as the thing We call life remains, Let fii Mi8a atsSept the inevitable—the end that Coines td all in time— and reason that an all-wise Ruler knows What is best* " Let us think that his dying eyes read a mystic meaning which only the tapt and parting soUl may- knotV.

B, w, ' J, B. VTARBEK. Estherville Republican: Mr. War* ren was well known in this county and Was supervisor from the Swan Lake district where he resided during the years that the county seat was at that place, Mr. Warren was an aggressive man, strong and unyielding, but had scores of friends in this locality. Senator Funk in Spirit Lake Beacon: As editor of THE UPPEB DBS MOINES the deceased was during a portion of the sixties and seventies a conspicuous figure in Iowa journalism. A man of strong character, earnest, positive, courageous and able. Mr, Warren was a friend to be appreciated and a foe to be feared. He had a Kindly heart and was moved largely by generous 'impulses. The Beacon with genuine regret chronicles the death of this pioneer. Emmetsburff Democrat: J. H. Warren, one of the best known newspaper men in northern Iowa, died at the home of his son, Robert, in Algona last Saturday morning. He was proprietor of THE UPPEB DES MOINES in 1866, and several years ago established the West Bend Journal. A year or so later he went to Spearflsh, S. D. He was a clean, vigorous writer, and was intimately associated with the early growth and development of Kossuth county. He died at the age of 75. Al. Adams in Humboldt Independent: Mr. Warren was a well known character in the early days of this country. He assisted the other good men who settled there to make Algoaa a place on the map. The first job work the editor of the Independent ever ordered was gotten out in THE UPPEB DES MOIXES office under tbe supervision of J. H. Warren. It was a hand bill for a minstrel show and the returns of the 'show did not pay for the bills and the excise tax that was then collected on shows. The manager worked it out, however, in a saw mill, afterwards. J. C. Bennett in Emmetsburg Reporter: A man of Mr. Warren's strong personal _type naturally provoked opposi- tionj and in the conduct of his paper he at all times insisted in remaining untrammeled. While possessed of an ordinary degree of charity for erring humanity in general he could not tolerate anything that he took to savor of hypocrisy—but to use his own phrase would " ventilate it" every time. This of course raised opposition and in 1875 resulted in the formation of a syndicate to buy him out and the paper passed from his hands. We knew him well—saw bis incomings and outgoings—his daily, family life—for a period of four years. He had unbounded faith in his family, and made a home not only for them but for his and their friends. He was a rough diamond. Under an unpolished exterior there lay hidden a good, true heart, and it is with sadness that we bid him this last good bye, E. H. Warren in the Spearfish Mail after an affectionate sketch of his father's career, closes as follows: James H. Warren was a man of strong personal characteristics, firm in his belief of right, outspoken on any subject, as ready to defend his opinions as he was to admit his errors. He was a member of the Masonic and Odd Fellows' orders, and for two years was an officer in Spearfish Lodge No. 18, of which he was a member at the time of death. Masonry was his religion, and he has often remarked that the proudest moment of his life was when his youngest son became a member of that order. Perhaps the most worthy tribute that can be paid to his memory is to say that he was an honest and upright man and Mason. His life work is done. After 75 years of tempestuous trials and tribulations, successes and defeats, he has at last been " wafted in the divine ark to that peaceful harbor, where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary shall find rest." • A MUSIOAL ATTBAOTIOlSr. The Drummer Boy of tiie Kappahan- uock at tiie County Fair—The Program.

Fully 50 Algonians went to Emmetsburg Thursday morning for the second game with the redoubtable Burgers. The game was easily won by Algona's nine by a score of 8 to 1. The Emmets- burgers seemed to have an idea that all was not well and declined to gamble much on their nine or to show any great interest in the game. Fully as many were on the grounds from Whittemore and Algona as from town. Only 32 men went to bat on the Em* metsburg side, and as 27 would have to go if every man struck' out it is easy to see that Algona's'new battery was too much for them. The third game is likely to come off at Whittemore in ten days, that town offering a purse of $60. The game would be secured for the fair, but the new players can only remain till Oct. 1. _ Another Game at Aleona. Next Tuesday the Garner nine will play on the fair grounds with the Algona boys. The visitors play good ball and it will be a close contest. A Hot Game With Clarion. The Algona club played the Clarion boys yesterday at their home grounds and the score stood 1 to 1 at the end of nine innings, when the game was stopped on account of darkness. The Clarions play in Algona Friday at the fair ground. It will be the game of the season. _ Notes of Sport. The Algona club played at Clarion yesterday. Bailey says Frank Grose looked and ran like a bloomer. That is rough on our good looking county chairman, Besides Bailey is not the one to be saying it, any way. ' Keokuk Gate City: Far or near no one has heard anything said recently about the scholarship of any Iowa student in college anywhere, but the distinction Johnny Crum's legs have got shows " the way we live now." Bailey in his write-up of the ball game between the court house ring and the land men notes one play in particular: Sehleicher, clerk pf court, started in by making a home run on four balls. This was a brilliant play and elicited great applause. Those posted on base ball tactics will agree that this play has not been made by a player in any league game this summer. John V. Crum, the Iowa university sprinter, whose phenomenal successes this season had pointed to his triumph in the coming championship games of the American Athletic union, was decisively beaten by E. J. Wefers over the 100-yard course ifi the second series of trial games held at Travers Island.. Crum was never in the hunt from the start, Wefers winning by a yard from him, Tommy Lee and W. Goodwin being a foot behind. The time was 10' seconds. Wefers also won tbe scratch 220-yard race in 0:21 4-5, while M. Burke. did a quarter mile in 0:49 3-5, TWO sets of experiments for the investigation of the upper atmosphere, by flying mammoth kites to great 'alti~ tudes, are now in progress — one under the direction of the weather bureau at Washington, the other at the Blue Hill observatory, near Boston, conducted by W. A. Eddy of New Jersey. Mr, Eddy's first experiment in this series, on Wednesday, was reported a success in a- high wind. He also took photographs with plates sent up f r om the kites 250 feet above the ground, In tbe experiments at Washington ten giant kites, all in one string, will be flown, if possible, to the height of two miles, This of course would be many times higher than any other kite has hitherto traveled, the famous Eddy kites having flown only 4,000 feet the last year, New kites with improvements have been made and flown from time to time, &nd •an aluminum thermograph has been SnEH" th , e a 'i' at heights of 1,600 and-' 2,000 feet for hours, Chief O f Bureau Willis L, Moore says that resets of great interest may be obtained now at' any time, _ _ CUBE FOB HEADACHE, .
