At Pottef, cotnmitteetaail. Tflli Fort Dodge Messenger lays it down as a rule in Iowa that no law should be enacted which id wider in its application than the authority of the officers who are to enforce it. That is absolutely correct. But when the Messenger cotnes to apply Its rule it assumes that the only officers who can enforce law in Iowa are local officers, and that therefore legislation should be local in extent. And right on the heels of this assumption It commends Gov. Culbertson and the Texas legislature tot passing a state law to prevent Dal las from harboring a prize fight, What officers are there in Texas to enforce the new prize fight taw that there are not in Iowa to enforce any law? And of what effect Would the new Texas law be if left to Dallas constables for enforcement? Gov. Boies is responsible for a great many plausible fallacies that have passed current in late years in Iowa, and among them this Idea that the constable is the chief functionary of law enforcement. The fact is the governor is the real fountain head of law enforcement under our system, and the difference between a governor who does his duty and one who does not is the difference between Gov. Culbertson and Gov. Boies, just as the difference between A president who does and one who does not is the difference between Cleveland in the Chicago riot and Buchanan in the rebellion. The most insignificant statute ever enacted in Iowa has behind it as a final resort the whole military force of the state. If any statute has ever failed of execution it has not been-because of lack of authority but because of a shirking of official duty from the lowest to the highest round of the executive ladder.' No wonder Judge Babb skipped Algona. How could he face that Kossuth delegation to the Marshalltown convention after stating as he did in his Cedar Rapids speech that " the great body of democrats are believers in the theory of the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver on terms of exact equality." A 'SUIT that may become of local interest has been begun in Clay county. A land owner Who abuts a small lake that has dried up sues to quiet title to that part of the lake bed that falls within his lines. The question is •whether the beds of inland lakes belong to adjoining owners or to the public. It is said that the case will be hotly contested. MK. J. C. MAETIN of Emmetsburg and the Ledyard Leader are technically incorrect in referring to cane racks, nigger baby racks; etc., as gambling devices. The postal authorities in the case of the Chicago Herald's guessing contests have passed on this question. Gambling is a game of chance. Guessing authors' faces is a game of skill, likewise ringing a cane or hitting a nigger baby with a ball. A prize won by skill of any kind is legitimate. THE Methodists come out with vigor against the mulot, That is all right as an abstract proposition but the practical matter before the voters of Iowa is whether they will continue the mulct or get a great deal worse form of local option. If the republicans should not Win the state would be cursed with a township option saloon law, and how .much better off would any body be then? COL.

Thefewete sohg-ahd-'dance artists with bahjos and guitars, and a young fellow Who loofaed as though he'd just cottle off the farm, with Wide straw hat, hay in his hair and & iatgg hay rake in his hands. There Was also a convict in prison stripes. It was a motley crowd that sat ih close rows on the large stage. Commander Booth said he had been called Upon to introduce his own scarlet- garbed enthusiasts to many wealthy communities in many places, and had introduced also the coavefta of Various countries in their national garb; hut he never remembered being called Upon to preside over such an exhibition, and certainly did not expect ever to be asked to assume the role of manager or director of a Salvation Army dramatic entertainment. He had called the meeting, he said, to demonstrate what may be behind the despised garb the often scoffed-at uniform. Ensign Crawford now, formerly a switchman on the Grand Trunk railway—he looked the part—a fine, big, blonde fellow, who'd flag a train to save a disaster if at the cost of his life, cleared his lantern, struck a match, lighted it, signaled, and then told how he first knew of the army from a band who sang in a near-by railway station. He was trying for promotion then; hoped one day to get far enough up the ladder to have a little brick cottage and a bit of lawn with flowers and somebody in the cottage. But he participated in the awful scenes of a railroad. disaster, and somehow the memory of the little band that saved souls wouldn't get out of his mind. He "wrestled over it," and finally became. " a sort of halleluiah switchman." An ex-Wellesley College professor came next—a frank-faced woman in college gown and cap. She related her gradations from the chair of botany and chemistry to the blue poke bonnet and the tambourine. She reached this by way of the auxilliary league of which she was a member while still in the college. A sharp and 'effective contrast to this black-garbed woman was offered when Commander Booth introduced "The Saved Anarchist." He looked the part in face and dress, and carried a red flag bearing the emblem of skull and cross bones. The legend, "Vivel'Anarchie," and something about "Egalite" in the folds. In his broken foreign speech this wild-looking person told how he had been hunted out of half a dozen countries in Europe; he had been in prison; had tasted every hardship; and had been sufficiently wicked to satisfy the most abnormal craving for crime on the part of an ideal anarchist. The drums and tambourines caught him one night when he hadn't a penny and hated the rich rather more than usual. He went into the hall to hear what was going on, and salvation overtook him. He said he was glad of it. At the close of his confessions the anarchist tore down his red symbol and rumpled it underfoot. . He then unwrapped the stars and stripes, joined with the scarlet flag of the Salvation Army. As he waved these the band burst forth with the national air, and there was loud cheering and hearty "Amens" until the commander insisted ffefti' Me Was onco : ttri OttaM sfrd wti ftfie*neinftt$erytt&eTS& SaivMioti lasftie found him in 4 SoWery ealdon.

Wesley all the modern games and ha4 ra&wy, that have dropped. upon quiet in the audience. Glenn a reformed bartender, and "Shorty," rescued thief, next appeared. " Shorty" . evidently hadn't received the gift of tongues since his conversion, for he made no remarks; but the .ex-"barkeep" told his experience. During .its. recital a tiny, flaxen-haired girl in a scarlet frock and white guimp climbed the steps leading to the stage. Th'en she trudged along close to the footlights until she stood close to the speaker, upon whom she fixed a most approving look. Her fat little hands were folded behind her back, and she didn't stir until he had finished, when she trotted contentedly off. She was Glenn's little daughter. , The man in stripes told how he had been converted in prison while serving a fourteen years' sentence by reading a War Cry, iHe was pardoned out and came straight to headquarters from a far-off city. *. Then one of the »« summer girls" came forward. A slender, graceful, thoroughbred-looking girl, with a delicate face, a sweet voice, and charming manner, She was Captain Anderson, A year ago she left her home and a large social circle to enter the army, She said; "Just now, when that bench broke in the gallery, I said to the captain next me that I should hate to be killed in this dress. Already it seems unfamiliar and unsuitable. I want to die iu harness, Jn my army uniform." A press man and a trained nurse formed a group that delighted the audience. The man was brought in on a stretcher labeled "Slowtown Hospital," and the nurse ministered to him and told her experience, Miss Edith Marshall, " the saved sphool- girl," bad a few wprds to say that were pleasing, and carried the convlptioa that she is satisfied with her choice. The next act was very exciting, and was watPhed breathlessly, lieutenant Heide- ma.n, the saved man-of-war's wan, eame down a rope stretched from the dome to the stage.

On Saturday 64 engines left the round-house at Mason City during the 24 hours. The immense amount of traffic coming from the west called for this extraordinarg eflort. Sheldon Mail: Mr. Lantry of Algona, brother of Miss Eva Lantry, the new operator in charge of the up-town telegraph office, spent a part of Saturday and Sunday with his sister. West Bend Journal: Fred Wlchman caps the climax on crop yarns. He says he had one piece of flax that yielded 10J bushels of mustard and H bushels of flax to the acre. Next! Bro. Platt: We see by the Algona UPPER DBS MOINES that Dr. Cutler has sold a fine rssidence property in Bancroft with the intention of moving to Iowa Falls. Seeing that we haVe but eight physicians in town now, there may be room for another one or two. Blue Earth City Post: Mr. Smith came up from Algona last Friday and returned next day with Andrew C. Anderson's "Jean Wilkes," which he will keep during the winter. This is one of the most promising five-year- olds in this section and we expect she will fly before a year rolls around. Although having been trained but a short time she could easily have been given a mark of 2:20 had Mr. Anderson been willing to have allowed her a record this season. Mr. Smith is an intelligent and careful trainer and will bring out all the speed "Jean" possesses. The Forest City Summit says Bailey invited them to clean out Algona too late in the season: The call comes too late, Bro. Bailey. We would be glad to show our western neighbors how the game is played by the best home team in Iowa, but this is not an opportune time, as Algona's wonderful team has gone to the demnition bowwows, taking with them a good, large roll of Kossuth county's money. Next year when they have recovered from their baseball lethargy, we will try to arrange for them an exhibition by the "Forest City Cyclone" and the "Tall Sycamore of Winnebago" and their fellow players.

Light MflHHihg a Delightful trip td Why Andy Duulap did not come to the fair is the title of the following tale in the Ledyard Leader: Ledyard's highest official was beat out of attending the fair Wednesday in a peculiar way. Quite a crowd were going down on the 7 o'clock accommodation and the mayor, was to have been one of the number. In dye time the crowd began to gather at the depot; but the mayor did not arrive. The smoke from the engine was sighted and still no mayor came. A messenger was sent to ascertain why he tarried so and to warn him of the approaching train. When asked the cause of his delay his brief answer was: "I can't find my clothes." It was now too late to get ready, On further investigation his Sunday best was found at the bank building, Assistant Cashier Smith, wishing to have them out of the way had put them into the vault the evening before. Time lock, see! It would do no good to fine Mr, Smith for conspiracy, and all that could be done was to play that he did not'want to go anyway and let the jolly crowd go without him. , Us was OR when he pert .at was WALKER WHITE8IDE. An Estimate of the Great Tragedian Formed op Ilia Recent Appear* ance In New York, Walker Wbiteside played in JSTew York City the week beginning Oct. 5 and is npw traveling west through that state. Various comment on his attempt at Booth's greatest play, " Hamlet, "isindulged }n. In the Dramatic Mirror of Oct. 13 Appleton Morgan writes a letter in which he says; New YQHK, Oct. 5,1895,—Sir: I desire to place myself on record as prophesying that Walker Whiteside stands prTtbe thresh pld of a great career. Anyone who supposes that the part of Hamlet can be played by note, or by imitation of a pfcosen model, or without Jong and Intense mental and Physical labor, or without a natural jatel^ Jeotual fltnese for and attraption to the character, can speedily ascertain for himself by trying it. I congratulate Mr, Whiteside on his conscientious performance i on hi? exceptional fitness fpr the part, on his earnestness and deliberation, awd above all OB his exceedingly happy choice of readings -tfeis lattej- a maze wherein many plSey njen hive lost thews, elves-» played by Malta Orajgeo, Britt and Wesley are ho longer OB speaking terms, and telephone users need not be surprised at any time to find the wire ctit between the towns* It has all arisen out of a five mile race between VickerrnaB, the Britt bicyclist who rode at Algona at the fair, and Fred. CoPey's pony which won from Carl Hunt at. the fair. Wesley went over and backed Corey's horse as they had ample warrant to do, for Vlcker* man is not equal to Hunt at five miles and the pony beat Hunt easily, But Vickerman won, and Britt took the Wesley money, and Bailey rubs salt on the bare places, while Wesley declares that a bold and flagrant fraud was practiced. It seems that Vickerman had asked as a condition of the race that he be paced by a horse and cart. That means that a horse and cart should bo driven ahead of him to break the wind and also to set a rate of speed for him to keep. This was agreed to and in itself was innocent enough, but it now appears that on the back stretches the driver held his whip back and Vickerman getting It in his teeth was hauled about at a lightning gait, ready for a fast spurt every time he passed the grandstand. At least this is the Wesley story, and hence the crimination and recrimination. The Reporter gives the Wesley version of this painful episode as follows: "In the five mile race between Vickerman on the wheel and Corey's horse, Vickerman came under the wire first, but has as yet not won the race, on account of his trickery, which was about as follows: Vickerman had a horse and cart for a pacemaker to his wheel. He followed the cart and nine of the rounds in the race the driver of the horse and cart held his whip behind the cart and Vickerman would take hold of it with his teeth and let the horse pull him. Of course this was a very smart trick in the estimation of Vickerman and his fool friends, but he will hardly make any cash out of it, and that was his only object. "The better element of the people of Britt would never countenance any such action on the part of one of her citizens, and consequently Vick's supporters are not to be found among the best people of Britt." But Bailey denies all this and says the Wesleyitesare kickers: "Thenice between the horse and bicycle Saturday was well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by everybody. The odds were in favor of the horse but Vickerman is a lightning rider with excellent staying qualities. He beat the horse easily. The Wesley fellows we understand kicked, and raised the preposterous claim that Vickerman held a whip in his teeth, carried by the rider of the road cart, who rode ahead as a pacer! It might be that he ran against the whip in shoving the pacer along, which he had to do, but if the pacing horse couldn't get out of his way what else could he do? Great kickers those Wesley fellows. We can beat them any day in the week." The Reporter adds a note which is a queer comment on the above: "Bailey says ' privately' to everyone who asks him about it, that he saw 'Vickerman have hold of the whip with his teeth. Come Ed., own up. Corey, a non-resident of your town has been worth more to Britt than all the Vickermans you ever saw, then why be a party to such scullduggery." „......' : ., . And Bailey says unfeelingly: " S. X. Way and Z. S. Barrett were down from Wesley in attendance at the race and the great wrestling match. Zim, had money enough left, to buy a ticket home with, and luckily Stitz drove down." A Pleasant Boating Trip. Walter H, Light, well known hereabouts, is to make a pleasant excursion this winter, The Ruthven Free Press tell about It: Walter Light returned from Chicago Friday evening.

Wants Algona Hoys to Let Tobacco Alone-Me is Much Alai-itied at the Decadence ill These Pafts. 3> L. Martin came over from Em* ffletsburg for the Mr. He takes a hopeful view of the corn shelter, but is Very despondent over Algona habits. The beets and potatoes looked all right but the cane rack and nigger baby stand he wants are not sure that Mr. abolished. Martin is We not right, but if he has been in Emmetsburg long his views are funny to say the least. Here is the Democrat's report: Thursday, J. L. Martin attended the Kossuth county fair as representative of his brother, J. K., for the purpose of seeing the corn busker work. The next day and shredder our reporter interviewed him and he says the machine does better husking than is usually done by hand. It carries the corn into a wagon and the shredded fodder, which is as good as tame hay, is carried to a barn or stack, as desired. He says he could not -judge of its capacity, but the manufacturers are willing to to vouch for a capacity of fifteen acres per day. J. K. Martin is the agent for. the company in this county. The kernels that shell off in the handling are all collected and deposited in a little heap in the rear of the machine. He thinks it is the coming machine and he could discover no defect in its doing all that is claimed for it. , The fair was quite creditable in its exhibits, especially in-grain, vegetables and fine stock. Our floral hall, as to building and contents, excelled theirs; but they have other buildings, one of which contained grains, grasses, roots and vegetables, arranged on either side of alleys, making a convenient as well as creditable display. A very conspicuous feature of the fair was the number of fakirs and gamblers and the troops of young boys, approaching or. past the ages that should indicate moral and intelligent manhood, smoking the cigarettes and cigars that they had won at the gambling stands—ignorant young men who reflect no credit on their parents and know nothing of,the fearful havoc the cigar and cigarette make on their minds and bodies. Kossuth is well supplied with such youngsters. He says, there are no open saloons in Algona, but judging from the piles of bottles in the horse stables, the drug stores there are having an immense trade. He saw one young man rifling the pockets of his boy friend, who was "a little off"—too druuk to stand up— lest some stranger might take .his money. Such scenes as these make thoughtful people sad. BEO. BABTLETT'S TOWN, Dallas, Texas, Is All Klght-J. W. Bartlett Tells Our Headers About Sentiment Thereabouts. DALLAS, TEXAS, Oct. 18.—To the Editor: In this week's issue you say, anent the prize fight, that "J. W. Bartlett's town is in deep mourning. 1 ' Nixie, old boy, Dallas is top good a town, and the people too good people t&mburn over the loss of something that was engineered by gamblers, for gamblers and thugs.':'The masses of the people here were never in favor of it, and only a few merchants, who expected to sell a few more goods during the fair, joined with the saloon-keepers and hotels in the effort to bring the fight here. Many' of our best folks disliked the action of the "youngman down stairs" in his fight to stop the mill because nobody thinks the governor was actuated by motives of virtue or the good name of the state. It was an-instance of " when rogues fall out honest people get their dues," that's all. But candidly, there are hosts who think as your humble servant, that this action will go far to do away with the false idea that Texas is the home of the tough, and that the word Texas is almost synonymous with anarchy and lawlessness. Four years in Texas and Dallas has taught me that the citizens of this state are Americans, and like M" others, .some bad, but the great majority the same kind of stuff that make America great, A'coun- try that can show lands that actually sell for $50.per acre, and farms that yield $4 to $5 per acre cash rent every year, cannot be controlled long by the cowboy or the renegade who some 40 years ago made a bad reputation for Texas. When I declare my loyalty to Texas. I do not renounce either »y love or i 0 y a ity to your grand state, which is my mother country, but I miss no opportunity to defend either, I look forward to sometime when I shall be able to see Algona * • ' in my bear le , Shdttid fie t# a full Johft Ahftotfrt<*ed-MSth« Speakers ift §ight-=-t*fiiiti«5al Notes.

We believe that the republl- cans of the County have had enough experience with breaking up to not again resort to it, an a. for I have a mighty warm place ... ^, ^rt for her and her people, and for my good old former friends, Whenever you get a notion that you would like to see a fine country and shake the honest hands of a lot of old Confeds that swear by "Old Glory" as fervently as you or I, come down here and I'll take pleasure in showing you what a garden we live In and what fine neighbors we've got.

One Circus Pays the Bill, We have had no circus this year and one circus will build a jail, Here is what the Bancroft Register says about the jail tax: " This county is the biggest and best, in the state, and though our number of criminals is small it Is a crowning disgrace that what we call our county jail will no more holdaman who does not wish to be detained than a structure of corn stalks. The cost to individual property holders is too trifl ing to consider, and we believe our peo- ple'will see the question in its proper light and that within a year from now an appropriate jail will be erected. Ex-Gov. St. John Next Wednesday. It is definitely announced that the eloquent ex-governor of Kansas will speak in 'Algona at court house hall next Wednesday, Oct. 24, in the interests of prohibition.
