In this city, was over from Algona Ex-Gov. ST. JOHN of Kaneng speaks in Algona today. He is an eloquent and able man and should have a. large audience. But everyone, who hears him should keep fairly in mind that the whole fight of the prohibitionists at present is to defeat tbe supporters of tbe mulct law, in other words the republican candidates. And they should also keep fairly in mind that the only alternative to the mulct is a township saloon law. When he is done if every voter will ask himself what the temperance cause will gain by voting in a democratic liquor law in place of what we have no harm will result. EVERT republican in Kossuth county should go to the polls. Because there is little excitement in the local campaign is no reason for not voting. Iowa needs a big republican majority this year to give Allison a boom, if for nothing else, and Kossnth should contribute its share.

Emmetsbtirg Democrat: During the term of court just closed at Algona one man was sentenced to the penitentiary for nine months for burglary, three others were each fined $300 and costs for boot-legging, and another was indicted.for adultery. A religious revival would not so any harm over there. Estherville Vindicator: C. L. Lund of Aleona is preparing to crib at least 1001,000 bushels of corn. We believe bis head is level. It is impossible for tbe Writer to believe that grain will remain at the present low prices throughout the year. There must surely be a very considerable advance, especially in corn. The Spencer Sews welcomes Rev. Kennedy as follows: Mr. Kennedy is a young man of good presence and pleasing address. His Sunday morning sermon was a plain, practical one, and delivered in a Trinner calculated to impress tbe audiu.ce with the intense earnestness and sincerity of the speaker. Kossuth's 65 bushel wheat story is capped. The Blue Earth Citv IPost says: Of all the heavy yields that have been reported this year we have heard of nothing that compares with a four- acre wheat field on Mr. Ryan's farm from which, he informs us, be threshed 300 bushels machine measure, or 75 bushels per acre. It seems almost incredible of belief even for Faribault county, but Mr. Ryan verifies his statement by others, and proves it to be unquestionably true. It is of the blue stein variety. SAK FRANCISCO is an aggressive candidate for the coming national republican convention, and J. S. Clarkson Is supporting thai city. Pittsbnrg is also an active candidate. Chicago is in a quiet and receptive attitude. SECEETAHY WALSH of the democratic state committee was caught with an appointment at tbe headquarters of the third party prohibition leaders in Des Moines. He confesses in tbe Leader. His statement furnishes a satisfactory commentary on the pur- j>oses of the third party campaign. SENATOB SHERMAN has published Jiifi memoirs and political circles are in -a buzz. In effect he charges Gen. Gar- jfield with going into the presidential j convention of 1880 in bad faith, and in accepting the nomination when in honor he was bound not to. Garfield, It will be recalled, headed a Sherman delegation from Ohio. COL. HENDERSON correctly stated in Algona that the republican attitude towards the liquor question is to give the present law a trial. That is a sensible attitude, for what object is there in any change until there is a substantial agreement among what may be called tbe anti-saloon forces as to what they want No such agreement ioday exists either for a prohibitory Amendment, tbe old prohibitory statute, •Of a local option license, Tbe mulct is as good as any law we will get until lull public control of tbe business is 1 upon.

Stacy lately found a faded program of an Algona gathering back in the 50's in honor of forefathers' day. It has a curious interest now both to the "old settlers" and to the new. The toasts were numbered and were in the following order: Xextto onr Puritan ancestors onr esteem, reverence and gratitude are due to the pioneers of Hbssuth county. Asa C. CalL Tbe Clergy—Lake good old John Robinson who gave the pilgrims his parting blessing as they left Delf-Haveo, they have always been ready to encourage the pioneer in his efforts to extend the blessings of civilization to savage lands.

The program is interspersed with songs, and we judge that the address on the pilgrim fathers was given by Father Taylor. Many who took part have moved away or have gone to their final reward. Those remaining will doubtless recall with amusement this enthusiastic meeting of forty years ago. By the way, what has become of tbe enthusiasm of those days? Where are our celebrations now of forefathers' flay and what programs wiil be fished out 40 years hence to show that our citizens were alive intellectually? push tad real enterprise lha*i any ot the others, which fact is in a tteasm* doe to foe infusion of tench northern, blood.

Many northern people have gone there and have become residents chiefly on that account, finding relief from the ills that afflict humanity in the peculiarly invigorating climate. To an extent the city is cosmopolitan. One meets in tern men who were in the federal army daring the war and those who fought on the confederate side. There is now and then a foreigner, but they do not seem to be numerous. The colored man, however, is in evidence everywhere. Whether or not he is getting all that he is entitled to is a question that does not admit of discussion in this article. They have their schools and churches, and hi some portions of the south are making good progress. Tbe people of Atlanta in particular and that section generally have hnilt an exposition that is a marvel, all things considered. One who goes to see it must not expect a reproduction of the world's fair, though it is its counterpart on a smaller scale. The site selected is panoramic, being a sort of basin with natural walls surrounding it The ground occupied includes about 300 acres, and buildings are modeled much after the style of architecture of those at the world's fair. As a whole the exposition is an immense credit to the south. It gives one a more perfect idea of the resources of the south than can be had in any other way. * « » The Iowa editorial excursion left Des Moines, ISO strong, on the evening of Oct. S. A night run brought them to St Louis for breakfast Wednesday morning. A day was devoted there to seeing the city, special attractions being the St Louis fair and the exposition, both creditable, though tbe latter proved the more interesting of the two. Those who visited the exposition found a vivid reminder of the world's fair in Sonsa's famous hand, which was giving two concerts daily in the great auditorium. It was easy for one to imagine himself again hack on the grand plaza at Jackson Park while listening to the music of this now famous band. About S p. m. the train pulled out for Nashville, arriving there the next morning. * » * 4 $60,000 OBTOW HOME. State Ofld Fellows TFJIJ P»U4 Jefferson -Annual Meeting Week at WarslmJUown. Messrs, E, Blaekfprd, E. H, Clarke, T. H. Conner, an* %. c. Tuttfe of Al* gonaandJ. B, Cork of Burt attended the state meeting of Odd Fellows at The coming of the "prohibition editors," as they were termed down there, bad been announced and arranged for at Nashville, and the mayor of the city, together with other dignitaries, met them at the train and escorted them to breakfast prepared in honor of their coming. Here was where they felt the first touch of genuine southern hospitality. Here they were accorded the freedom of the city, whatever that might mean. They were told that everything in sight was theirs, and if they wanted anything they did not see they were to simply call for it It would be difficult to find a people anywhere more anxious to extend every courtesy than were those at Nashville. The street car system was placed at the party's disposal, and all places of especial interest were visited. The city has 90,000 inhabitants, and among other items of interest it was noted that they have 33 schools and colleges and 82 churches. It is the seat of the Peabody normal school, presided over by Chancellor Payne, and the Fiske and Vanderbilt universities, all of which were visited by the excursionists, and at each place there was a formal reception and epeech of welcome, responded to in each case by President Young in his usually happy manner. One of the places visited which elicited especial admiration was the Belle Meade stock farm, seven miles out from Nashville. The party went there in a body and were received by the owner of the estate, Gen. W. H, Jackson. There is a long and interesting history connected with this place, but space will permit only brief mention of it It was founded one hundred years ago by a man named Harding, and consisted of 9,000 acres. Harding built a stone mansion, which seems yet to be well preserved. He had two daughters, one of whom married Gen. W. H. Jackson and the other Powell E. Jackson, his brother, who was appointed by Cleveland to the supreme bench, and whose death occurred a year or so ago. Thus the estate fell to tbe Jacksons, who have occupied it ever since. Gen. Jackson received the excursionists with that sort of hospital'ty known best to the southern heart, and after being introduced made a speech which left no room for doubting his loyalty to the union. He was a lieutenant general in the confederate army, and our knowledge of this fact served only to make bis speech tbe more interesting, - He then took the }ea4 and showed the party over a portion of the immense estate. The portion wbiffc be occupies Jnphjfles 7,000 acres, He told us he bad 8§ miles of stone fence Which h^d cost him it dollar p yard.

Conveyances were secured and In a little over an boor we came upon the first reminders of the great straggle in the form of field pieces located, as nearly as may be, on the exact spots where they were nsed during the memorable three days' battle. Chiefcamauga Park, as it is iwnr known, is a government reserve of abont 6,000 acres. By a liberal appropriation by congress it has been possible for those having the matter in hand to dear tbe tract from underbrush and give it reiyniuch. of a park-like appearance. It has been the aim to secure field pieces, if not the identical ones used there, as nearly like them as possible, and these are set on stone foundations on the exact spots occupied by them during the battle, the war records and the knowledge of individuals who participated in the fight being drawn upon for this purpose. Added to these are magnificent granite monuments, the tablets upon which, giving the names of commanders and the number of men engaged at different pouts, also the number of men killed, make a history in themselves. To further assist the visitor in arriving- at a correct understanding of the situation as it was thirty years ago, iron tablets, erected on substantial iron standards, give all needed information concerning the location of union and confederate lines. Ohio sent more men than any other state into the bloody field of Chickamanga, and this is attested by the fifty-seven splendid monuments which stand as silent but impressive reminders of the bravery of the Ohio, troops. It was not learned just how many monuments are already in position, but they must run into the hundreds, and the work is still going on. Each state erects monuments for its own soldiers, and tbe northern states seem to have taken the lead, as fen- if any confederate monuments are yet erected. Returning the party drove by way of the Missionary Kidge route. Here also are monuments and field pieces marking the locations of the lines, and at convenient intervals are found iron observation towers 73 feet high, from which one gets a view of Missionary Ridge and the field of Chick- amanga not to be had elsewhere. Following this route we come to Snodgrass Hill, where Gen. Thomas, " the rock of Chickamauga," repulsed the armies of Hood and Longstreet, and saved the day at Chickamanga, The writer dismounted and made a critical examination of the surroundings where CoL R, H. Spencer (now treasurer of Kossuth county) was captured by the confederates in spite of his efforts to have it otherwise; and where Dr. McCormack, also of Algona, to use his own language, made the best fight of his life. We could readily understand how uncertain was Thomas' position, with confederates on two sides of him, and how none but a brave, determined, and levelheaded commander could ever have successfully withstood the furious assaults made upon him at that point Scattered through Chickamauga Park, and likewise on Missionary Ridge, one sees numerous trees in which cannon balls have either imbedded themselves or shot away part of the tree. Once in a while is found an old cabin, built before the war, from tbe loi^ of which the unhiquitous relic hunter has dug the bullets. In one we noticed a piece of shell which has thus far withstood all efforts at extraction, though many a jack-knife has been ruined in the attempt. Just as we leave the park and before reaching Missionary Ridge proper, we come upon the famous Widow Glen spring, where the union soldiers got drinking water until It became so filled with blood that it could no longer boused. It is now called Bloody Pond, and has more the appearance of a stagnant pool than that of a spring, Near this pond is where Gen. Lytle fell, and during his dying moments dictated the beautiful poem, " I am Dying,' Egypt, Dying." The spot is marked by an iron tablet. The trip to Ohlckamauga was rounded out by a drive through the national cemetery, lopated within tbe corporate limits ol Chattanooga, where headstones mark the last resting places of 18,000 union soldiers who fell in that memorable struggle. Jt is not the largest, but one of the large national cemeteries of the south. It is open to the public only during t«e day time, and is kept scrupulously neat, The rules governing visitors are rigid, as they snouW be, and guards are there to see they are enforced. t*# . from fife top of Lookout Mountain is grand beyond description. Railroad trains in the the appearance of toys. A voluble dwrkejr who volunteered much more or less valuable information said that In dear weather six states were clearly visible fran Point Lookout, and on one day there were seven, and (hen he ratUed oft the list: "Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Korth Carolina, South Carolina, and the state of matrimony.'" He had reference to the Minnesota editors, who had a wedding on the mountain a short time ago. There was a sort of fascination in the giddy heUrht, the marvelous scenic view below and beyond us all around, the "irresistible impulse 3 ' to jump off, experienced by so many hut Curbed through better judgment, which was only dissipated by the approaching darkness, and those who felt that the walking was not good and that their desires for experience on the inclined railway were quite satisfied, took the steam railway for the return trip, which winds about the mountain side to the base. * « » The party reached Atlanta Saturday noon, and soon after dinner went to the exposition grounds, where Chief of Publicity and Promotion, W. M. Cooper, made it a part of his business to see that every courtesy was extended to the Iowa delegation. Free admission to the grounds was accorded, likewise to all its places of enter tainment. The marvel is that Atlanta conld pot np so good an exhibit as it has. It involves the expenditure of a large sum of money, and must be regarded as an enormous undertaking, especially in view of the short time that has elapsed since the holding of the world's fair. In •addition to the southern exhibits there are many foreign displays, the securing of which shows much enterprise on the part of the management. An exposition would be nothing without a "Midway," and here is one that resembles that of the world's fair, except as to extent The editors were taken in a body through the numerous places, not the least interesting of which was the Mexican village, included in which is the ring and amphitheatre which, seem to have been constructed with a view to a possible bull fight, but no bull fight takes place there, the exposition management, be it said to its credit, promptly sitting down on any such barbaric performance. For the special entertainment of the Iowa editors, however, a couple of bulls were brought into the ring, and the Mexicans gave exhibitions of lassooing and the manner in which obstreperous animals were subdued—all very interesting in its way. The Mexican fandango, danced for the edification of the Iowa scribes, had its points to be commended, but was so unlike anything of a terpsichorean nature indulged in by northern people as to make it unique, to say the least Altogether the exposition is a great success, and the Atlanta people are to be congratulated upon this tangible evidence of their enterprise. * * * Atlanta is a handsome city. The streets are laid out irregularly, but on the whole that does not detract from its general beauty. One finds in it a striking resemblance to our northern cities in its substantial business buildings and manner of doing business generally. Peachtree is its famous residence street, and there are seen costly and magnificent residences that serve as an index to the acquired wealth of the city. The city is proud of its exposition, and has made ample arrangements for the accommodation of the crowds that are expected to attend. Rates are not exorbitant, though one can pay any kind of prices he desires by going to the big hotels. Private houses furnish good service at moderate figures. Street car lines, hacks, herdics, and a steam terminal railway carry people to the very gates of the exposition, the fare never exceeding ten cents each way. Atlanta has two great newspapers in the Constitution, edited by Clark Howell, and the Journal, controlled by Hoke Smith. Both are finely equipped plants, and the managers of both extended the most cordial invitations to the Iowa delegation to go through their establishments. Tbe Constitution is the paper of which Henry W. Grady was editor, Grady died six years ago. He was worshipped by the people of Atlanta, and to commemorate his memory they have erected a splendid bronze statue of him in the very heart of the business part of the city. article, if any member of the — — v _„ VA »u^> ^Aiiurs failed to enjoy the trip frotn start it was ndttnfi fault *f Presid Secretary Shaw, whd left i that could contribute to the trip, where they wefts UiT^Jj J of a splendid diamond stud.

It interviewed him and reports:: There is not to be found in all Iowa a. more enthusiastic friend of the state than the man who has done so much to develop its agricultural and mineral resources. He has some large tracts of land up in Kossuth county, and the crops of flax, oats and hay this year have been gratifyingly large. "I would rather have an Iowa farm as an investment,"said Gov. Larrafiee, "than a government bond representing the same vajue." And he knows the permanency,'of government -bonds. He says that if he were thirty years younger than he is he would engage in farming even to a greater extent than he is doing now. It gives promise of sure and steady returns. • Florida and Southeast.
