CAMPAM A QUIP. 0SE ¥6t Boiiive* and Ottaiull Stiffed the finthtisffttft at fittft ofi ttofl« St. John's Speech It Fallfcd to Msfee Political Mows. » but Btirt Maintained Its reputation Monday evening titid turned out an audience for Dotliver which filled the kail long before the meeting began. At least a hundred could not get in and a great many times as many did hot attempt it who would have come from Bancroft and the neighboring country. Dolliver enjoyed the enthusiastic greet* ing and made one of the best speeches he has ever made in the county. At its close the ladies served an elegant oyster supper in the hall in the new bank block, atid the Algonians got started home along towards midnight. Burt never does anything by halves and always does its share to keep up the reputation Kossuth county has of giving public speakers full, intelligent, and appreciative hearing. Dolllver at Wesley. On account of a cold Dolliver did not attempt to drive to Wesley Monday afternoon and then to Burt, being still engaged, as he said, in trying to cheat providence with a spring overcoat. He will speak there this evening instead, which will suit better all around. Wesley will give him a big audience. The St. John Meeting. The court house was well filled for ex-Gov. St. John and the audience was highly entertained. The speaker vvas introduced by Mr. Atwood of Estherville, prohibition candidate for lieutenant governor, and on arising invited his hearers to ask him questions at any time. Wm. Cleary and' others took him at bis word and some lively tilts occurred. St. John asked why the silver dollar was as good as a gold one, at one point. One said because the republicans never made any bad money, and another because it had 30 years of republican rule behind it. St. John was witty, eloquent at times, and entertaining. But he failed, we believe, to be a convincing speaker, and he made few converts to free coinage and free ,trade_, which he devoted a large part of his time to. Politico I Notes. Don't fail to vote. , Congressman Dolliver is the best political speaker who visits Kossuth. Election comes next Tuesday. It will close the quietest campaign ever conducted in Kossuth. The new jail will cost what a big circus. usually takes out. We have had no circus this year. Dolliver spoke at Armstrong last evening. E. B. Campbell was at the Burt meeting and drove him over. The glee club, D. T, Smith, Fred Fuller, Geo. Hamilton and Guy Grove, Mrs. Grove at the organ, gave some good music at Burt, Samuel Mayne is having no active opposition. The boys concluded to accept THE UPPER DES MOINES suggestion and make it unanimous. Estheryille Republican: Kossuth county will vote on a proposition to build a jail. Let's sell them ours. Emmet county seems to have no use for a jail. Mr. Dolliver is not cheating providence with his light overcoat at present. John G. Smith traded with him at Burt and gave him his fine seal coat for his Armstrong drive. Ledyard Leader: Our Billy Burton is going to be re-elected supervisor and will have votes • enough to spare to satisfy an ordinary man. He has rendered conscientious and efficient service and deserves a nice endorsement. A communication from S. H, Taft of Humboldt on the importance of prohibition and one from S, D. Drake, who writes from Green Bay, Wis,, on the democratic tariff, both came to late for publication. We like to disseminate all views on all questions and regret not to publish these, B, I Sallinger had a lively experience in reaching his LuVerne appointment last Friday.

Weslev Beporter: .That oui* county should nave & secure place for its criminal class when arrested no law- abiding Citizen for a moment will doubt, and further, even for the criminal class the place to be occupied should be free from dampness, and where the light of day can occasionally penetrate. The present jail is a disgrace to Kossuth, the largest and best county in the state. Every voter$ regardless of party or locality in the county, should vote for the jail tax, M. D, O'Connell of Fort Dodge WBB billed for Bancroft by the state committee for Monday evening but no notice was sent to Chairman Crose or to Bancroft. When he arrived he found the crowd going to Burt and a telephone message from Dolliver telling him to come down, as a free oyster supper was awaiting him. He accord' ingly drove back to Burt, talked an hour there in his usual happy manner, and had a good time. He told the audience rfbout Dolltver's matrimonial plans in a manner to create great enthusiasm. , Every republican should vote for Supt. Beed because he was fairly nominated. The nomination did not come till the fifth ballot and then was made by delegations which were under no personal or political obligations to him. THE UPPER DBS MOINES was secretary and speaks by the card. His nomination was not railroaded through. His opponents had a full, fair show. He won because delegates who owed him nothing thought he would make a better official than the others. They knew he had been in office a long time but considered that his efficiency and work overcame the objection.' The convention was a big one, fully representing the county, it acted with deliberation, It made up as good a ticket as the county has ever had. Republicans should stand by it. Honey.

As soon 6.6 the necessary stock Was sub- 1 scribed the promoters of the enterprise were notified at Etataetsburg and also at flock Island. Saturday a letter was received from the Bock Island mab, who has the whole thing in charge, stating that he had written to the manufacturer and that as soon as a re" ply was received it would be forwarded here. He added that the conditions would be fully met and that our people would find everything satisfactory upon investigation. As soon as definite information is received, the, local stockholders will make such inquiries as they think necessary and will then send a committee to view the plant as provided in the conditions of the subscription, unless it should develop that that step should be unnecessary. It now looks as though everything will pan out as has been promised and as though we are about to get a well established institution, Meeting Tomorrow Night. A telegram has been received asking the citizens to have their committee ready for Monday. A meeting of the stock subscribers will be held tomorrow evening at 8 o'clock in the court room to elect the committee. Our Shoe Man Married. The young man who started Algona after the shoe factory is Wm. S. Jackson, whose father is Episcopalian rector at Emmetsburg. Last Tuesday while Algona was raising the wind he was getting married at the 'Burg to Miss Robins, one of the finest young ladies of that place. They have gone now to San Diego, Cal., for the winter. The Democrat says: Not long since he made a proposition in person to the Algona board of trade to locate a shoe factory there. The stock required to be taken by the citizens Is all subscribed and an increase has been asked. It is likely that be will engage in the enterprise mentioned. Factory Notes. Elmore Eye: Good for Algona. Whittemore Champion: Good for Algona. We hope she will get it. Bancroft Register: It's a good thing, and our county seat has the right kind of men to push it along. Germania Standard: The tnstitu tion will employ 800 men and we hope that Algona will push the matter to the front. .-.-.' Wesley Reporter: Since Algona has decided on having a shoe factory what's the matter with Wesley making an effort to secure a packing house and tannery. Of course Algona would patronize us. Estherville Republican: The shoe factory scheme has fallen through. The promoters wrote that the company could consider no proposition from a town that had only one railroad. Algona is now working for it. LuVerne News: From the looks of things at present all indications point to the fact that Algona will soon have a shoe factory. We hope that they will be able to • make the necessary arrangements and Algona will have her shoe factory. pBurt Monitor: After all isn't Al gona a rather light town for a shoe factory? Emmetsburg, you know, was going to do such wonders with her packing house. A shoe factory at the way, aofe te wof fclfif lot, & testa??, n is a em fof one, and they should hurry up and get in during the fifiei weather^ while the lasts cafi be made out of ddots where there is foom. Those bald hills afs good places to work, Let the Alg6na gifts step oft the side hill barefooted and; have the tracks filled with fcbtfd befdfe • the Sfibw comes. Good echeffle, shove it, Forest City Summit! Aigbtm and Estherville have propositions from eastern shoe factories looking tot* a chftnge of location.' Both propositions* of course contain a clause providing for either a large subscription of stock of a bonus of some thousands of dollars, Iowa needs \ manufactories and cannot have too many of them, and we trust our neighbors will succeed in getting establishments which will he of great benefit to their towns and counties, and hope that later on they will not find themselves in the position Emmetsburg is in with its pork-packing establish* ment and liable to nave to pay yet greater sums in order to make their investments at all secure, Too many factories change their places of business simply to strengthen a depreciated capital stock and work in a lot of old machinery at high prices and to afford an opportunity for the original owners to escape liability and make somebody else pay for their experience in business. ; ' ' ; ; -' - ........
