As a inatter of law this is not correct, ,. fts a matter of history it is Hot correct, And as a matter of sound public policy it is hot correct. For a statement that bears an air of plausibility it is as , , unfounded as it well could be. There is Bo such thing as local self government in the matter of enforcing laws. . Laws are daily being euforced success* fully in communities where the majority sentiment does not approve them, and the only possibility of government rests in the enforcement of law regardless of local sentiment. Our courts and state are organized •in such a way as to expressly eliminate ' .this item of local sentiment in enforc- • lug law. Take the commonest civil .case. It is sufficient cause for challeng- • ing any juror if on account of locality be is interested in the outcome of the , suit or is prejudiced. If a suitor can show that the community or the judge .are prejudiced he can have his case tried in a remote district. Our courts are continually adjusting ordinary litigation and enforcing their decrees regardless of local feelings or interests. In criminal matters it is the same. ' Indictment by grand jury is for the express purpose of allowing men from remote localities to paes upon the offense the criminal is charged with. . Every time a load of beer is brought from an outside town to Algona to be • tried and spilled it is a refutation of , Judge Babb's statement. Our criminal v law is so arranged that no local corruption or lawlessness can escape, however unanimously the people may act together. The moment it extends • ;to a county or judicial district the authority of the state is involved, and ' the governor is authorized by the ' -constitution to come to the assistance •of law enforcement with all the forces at his command. Likewise rebellion In a state is legally squelched by the supreme power of the nation. The fact that communities would naturally act together was 'fully contemplated, and the founders of our institutions have wisely planned that whether it be .to overcome prejudice of a little four .corners towards the humblest suitor in ,& justice court, op to overcome armed .•rebellion in a half dozen states, there «hall be ample authority to enforce equal and exact justice and maintain in ,full force and effect every law legally • anacted. As a matter of history Judge Babb is •wrong, as a few notable examples have proved to every schoolboy. The -whiskey distillers were so bitterly opposed to an internal revenue tax in '- Pennsylvania that they organized an armed rebellion. But Washington -enforced the internal revenue law in Pennsylvania. The South, Carolina cotton planters nullified the tariff, but Andrew Jackson had the government revenues collected in every port in South Carolina, The south declared slavery the corner stone of a new confederacy, But the boys in blue made the stars and stripes float just as usual ' over the ruins of the new government, ^apd set the slaves all free, The draft ' rioters of Dubuque told Gov. Kirkwood TiStbat their locality was "agin the war," ' 1>Ut the old war governor drafted . pubuquers easily enough after he told V 4hem there would be some shooting thereabout if they hesitated. Over at Indiana, the citizens notified , Mathews that they wanted prize • fights, But. the anti-prize fight law is . ^nfprced to Roby.

Law ts the arbitrary im position of one person's wilt upoi ftnother person's conduct.

One forges ahead and devise a new way. It proselytes until it gain power. Then it converts as Charle magne converted the Saxons. In th progress of these contests certain limits have been set beyond which b, common consent a majority will no attempt to rule a minority. But with in these limits law is what it alway has been, an arbitrary enactment fo the purpose of securing such conduc on the part of all the people as th majority decides is for the best inter ests of society. All the progres society has ever made has been bj enforcing law where it was not popular When it has been necessary the wishe of communities have not only bee over ridden, but the communities hav been wiped out. Slavery was destroye at the expense of thousands of gallan lives. Our present institutions ar what they are because on bloody battl fields a new system was imposed upo the conquered defenders of the old From the justice court where a fine i assessed upon an unwilling and un convinced suitor, to the surrender o Lee's sword at Richmond, the enforce ment of law' has been the sam arbitrary, cold blooded, and unyield ing process. Peace, order, civilization depend upon it remaining the same Before law is enacted we may debat it fully. When it has in due and lega manner been enacted the time fo debate is ended.

A Fort Dodger is travelling in England and writes to the Messenger. In a late letter he gives a pleasant account o seeing Gladstone: After a few minutes wait In the old churchyard, a private gate opening some thirty yards away, a lad, came up whom we were told was daughter. The gate opened again and Grand Old Man appeared on the path, first glance disclosed a man of less than usual stature, square shoulders, powerfu chest, white hair and beard under tbe chin he wore a gray suit with long coat, shining boots, tall white hat, a comfortable colla -and a badly-tied necktie. In his left ham he carried a cane, which he did not use a all in walking. He came rapidly up the path with a quick stride that betrayed nom of the palsy of age. At the door he bowed and raised his .hat in response to the quie greeting of the small crowd. Following into the church, we were seated a shor distance from the pew in which Mr. ana Mrs. Gladstone sat. They appeared to be a hale old couple, both with strongly marked faces, showing firmness and in telligence, • Mr, Gladstone seemed th younger. With his robust frame, his rosy complexion, his bright, full eye, his grea slightly hooked nose, his strong,, somewha protruding chin, one would have though him nearer 60 than 84. He followed closely, the service, using a large prln bible, and quickly turning with a full vigorous looking hand the pages to each lesson, He rose at each of the numeroui risings the service requires, and even found each hymn announced, When the rector began his sermon Mr. Gladstone carefully put away bis glasses, rose and marched across to a seat just before tbe pulpit, and paid strict attention to the address. When we went out into the churchyard, he walked away down the path to tbe little gate, touching his cane now and then lightly to the ground Lingering with an American's curiosity about the outskirts of the town we were repaid by seeing the aged couple come driving down home from church, They sat in a low phaeton drawn by one stately horse. Mrs. Gladstone handled the reins, while ner husband sat up straight -and looked about. A boy footman leaped from behind, opened a gate, and tbe little, vehicle disappeared among the green trees of the driveway. * E,mmet county nominated tbe county ticket by a primary election last week Jtepubliean B&ys; "The primary election, just past, demonstrates the advantage of that method of nominations oyer the caucus and convention system, 30 as getting a fair expression of tbe people in concerned," Tbe Vindicate* aisp "WbHe the present system well be improved upon ifl many wpejsts, In. its present fewn it ba» proved far - tbe veter,i generally the old caucus system,"' * * t Fprt Podge is getting the peg Meises 'ft feflDttS of WP,G0£>. enthusing tt?ef tbe ' tfsgedlftfi'S fofthcbmtnf &j3p-e'arabce, W tftkij pific@ at the tter tneatrl Sefct. 80, wb6l% he will "Hamlet*' and "ttichfelieti.'' *** Prof* Dixsdn^s life" is .made the text for & littte sermon In the £V>ft Dodge ffinies: "Prof, W.

From this he worked his Way up as a teacher Young people who have been denied early School advantages should take courage from the life of Prof. Dixson." » # # We note that J. J. Ryan gave $160 to help raise the $10,000 bonus for a shoe factory in Fort Dodge. He believes in having home factories even if we are compelled to protect them a little. * * # Bancroft was invaded last week bj an Uncle Tom aggregation. The Register now wants the legislature to license actors and a law enacted " making it a felony for anyone to produce or in any way assist in the production of Uncle Tom's Cabin."

The conclusion o: this second important series of engravings by Cole from the old masters is the subjec of editorial attention in Topics of the Time and the interesting announcement is mad< that after an interval Mr. Cole will undertake a third series of old masters. •' • ' . • 11 , y. Much of Robert Louis Stevenson's best work appeared for the first time in Scribner's Magazine, the only periodical to which he was an habitual contributor dur ing the last ten years; and it is therefore peculiarly appropriate that the first account of his home life at Vailima, written by a member of his household—his step-son am co-worker, Lloyd Osbourne—should appear in Scribner's pages, Mr. Osbourne's ac count, in the October number, of the home which Stevenson created, Of his extrdordi nary influence throughout Samoa, and the interesting household of Samoan servants and dependents-which he built up arounc him, is most picturesque and entertaining The whole article is an intimate persona account of a remarkable genius by one who loved him. There is wide variety in the contents of the October number of St. Nicholas. I opens with a familiar sketch • by John J a'Beoket of "The Child-Painter, J. G Brown," illustrated with reproductions of some of his most famous pictures. Prof Brander Matthews continues his series o: studies of Great American Authors, with a paper on James Russell Lowell, the story of whose life is full of inspiration, James Baldwin, who seems to have particular sympathy for horses, writes of "Bayard," noted in legendary history, It was the war horse of a French chieftain in the days of Charlemagne, and was finally put to death, as bewitched, by order of the great Emperor. In his u Hero-Tales from American History," Theodore Roosevelt tells the thrilling story of Lieutenant Gushing anc the blowing up of the confederate ram Albemarle. -*-H •" The October Atlantic Monthly is rich in good fiction. Mrs, Ward's powerful serial, A Singular Life, is concluded. There is a further installment of Gilbert Parker's Seats of the Mighty, which increases in Jn terest with e«ob succeeding issue. Furthei chapters of Charles Egbert Craddook's Mystery of Witch-Face Mountain also appear. One of the most striking coptribu- tions is another Japanese study by Laf oadlo Hearn, entitled The Genius of Japanese Civilization.

PEOF, DIXSON'S INSUBANOE MONEY The Adjuster .Pays Over $3,500 Within Two "Weeks—The Prompt Action of the National Life Company. THE UPPER DES MOINES referred two weeks ago to Prof. Dixson's life insurance policy of $2,500. The money was brought to Algona Friday by R. P. Dart, state agent of the National Life Insurance company of Montpelier, Vt., in which it was held, and paid over to 'Mrs. Dixson. The prompt action oJ the company has occasioned favorable comment. Three days after Prof. Dixson's death W. H. Tapley, special agent, came from Des Moines and assisted Mrs. Dixson in arranging the legal details of securing an administrator to whom the money could be paid,, and within two weeks it was ] over to her in that capacity by the state agent, .The following letter speaks for Mrs. Dixson's appreciation of the prompt and kind attention shown her: ALQONA, Sept. 27.—Mr. R. P. Dart, State Agent National Life Insurance company, Des Moines Iowa—Dear Sir: In August, 1894, my husband, Prof, W. H. Dixson, took with the National Life Insurance company of Montpelier, Vt., policy of life insurance for $3,500, and on the 14th of the present month died, after haying made but two payments on the same. The proofs of loss were made oul the 18th inst, and today I am in receipt oi the company's draft for the full amount of the policy. The widow and the fatherless thank the National Life Insurance company for this great help in time of need. Sincerely yours, ELIZABETH DIXSON, The National is a company of long standing and a number of policies are held in Algona which have been in force nearly 20 years, It has the reputation of always doing business as it has with Mrs, Dixson, A peculiar instance is that of Judge Weaver, while he was in Algona, He allowed a policy to lapse after making two pay ments in 1874, In April last at the end of the 20 year term be received a draft for $50, which was what the amount of his two payments entitled him to, He had lost, all track- of it himself and wrote the company that it was "just like finding It," Messrs. Dart and Tapley are pleasant gentle 1 men to meet and they represent a company which for a jpng period of years has maintained a reputation for doing business on business principles.

The Anamosa Eureka in a recettt is* sue gives ah interesting sketch of J. N, Easterly's war experiences, and also of a law suit that involves some curious questions, It says: Jacob N. Easterly, a resident of Burt, Kossuth county, for 13 years, has been in Anamosa a few days on legal business and visiting his cousin, S. L. Easterly. J. N. is the oldest son of Solomon Easterly, 40 years ago carrying on the blacksmith business where Mr. Wurzbacker's store now stands. Jacob went into the army, belonging to Company A, 18th Iowa, and probably was hit more times by rebel bullets and pieces of shell than any other man in Jones county. He was wounded twice at Shiloh, twice at Corinth, three times at Vicksburg, three times on the 20th of July, 1864, at Atlanta, and on the 21st eight times in eleven minutes. He is drawing a pension of $24 per month, on four of those wounds, The worst one was from a canister shot that broke his right thigh, another was a wound in the knee while he was being carried off on a stretcher, arid a third he received in the back of the neck at the same time, which he remarked was taking rather an unfair advantage of him. Of course he was sent home, arriving at Lisbon on his 21st birthday, and walked on crutches about four years, and with canes 12 years. On the 10th of August last year he carried the 13th Iowa marker flag in the procession at Des Moines, and was presented with it by Col. Rood, who has written a very interesting history of Mr. Easterly's remarkable experience in the service. He was afterwards fireman and engineer on the C.. & N. W. overland express, and his two brothers, William and Sam, have been with the same company 26 years, the first as engineer and the other as building foreman. Jabob has a wife and a married son and daughter, and also boasts of two grandchildren. . Action is to be brought in court to quiet title to several pieces of land in Greenfield and Wyoming townships, held by T. F. Davis and others, and Mr. Easterly contends that these lands formerly belonged to his father, and that no deeds were ever made by him. BAYS IT WAS A JOKE, ScrUleu Takes Maytum's Pocketbook. and Is Arrested— Tho Finale of AJffoiin'B Professional Jinse Ball Season. The inglorious fizzle of Algona's base ball professionals at Eagle Grove was followed by a fitting incident Monday morning as the professionals were leaving town. May turn the pitcher had gone, Swartz and Scallen were to leave at 8:18 in the morning for the north, and Maytum, catcher, at 3:07 south, Maytum and Scallen occupied the same room Sunday night and in the morning Maytum's pocketbook with $30, a lot of notes and other valuables, was lost. Scallen said he had not seen it, but Maytum had an idea he had and so swore out a warrant and Scallen was brought before 'Squire Raymond. He at once produced the book and said it was a joke and that he had no idea of keeping it. As he was to leave at ,8:18 o'clock the joke story seemed rather fishy. But as there was no further occasion to prosecute he was allowed to go,' and got off in the afternoon, ALL MEN ABE LIABS, This means you, and every other man in the. county, Now don't take off your coat to fight because I have told you the truth. "Truthful are the words of a friend," and I am your friend. You, like other men, lie down at 'night to sleep, consequently you are a liar. That I am your friend is shown by what I have done for you. While you are a liar you may not be a comfortable one; maybe your bed is so worn out that it breaks down; maybe your looking glass is so small and poor that it make? your handsome face look like a jack lantern; maybe the drawers in your dresser won't pull out, even if you swore when the handle pulled off. Now don't thrash your wife, thinking she has been telling your family affaire. She hasn't said a word to me, I just guessed that you might be afflicted us others have been, " A friend in need is a friend indeed," Jf you are a poor, sleepless liar, you are in need Jf anypne is, I am your friend because I have stocked up so that I can perfectly satisfy your need, and what's more I am the poor man's friend, I have bought a carload of chamber suits, Why?
