C. Platt in the Iowa Falls Sentinel! If there is any one institution in the United States of America that needs to be taken hold of and regulated by the strong arm of the law,, it is the telegraph monopoly. An instance- of- 'the outrageous and lawless manner in which they do business came to our notice; last Week in connection with the sudden death of Dr. Pride. His mother and sister, Mrs. O. P. Thompson, as is well known, have recently removed to Chapln (six miles away), so recently that Dr. Pride's wife at Algona was not aware of the fact. On the Saturday afternoon before the doctor's, death, (he died on Sunday morning)a telegram was sent here to Dr. O. P. Thompson, conveying the intelligence of Dn Pride's dangerous condition and requesting his relatives to "come at once," and notwithstanding- this telegram was sent and must have arrived here that evening, it was not repeated to Chapin nor delivered to Dr. Thompson's father, James Thompson, nor to any of the numerous friends of the family here. On Sunday after Dr. Pride's death, two more* telegrams were sent to Dr. Thompson here, but so far as any of the friends of the family now know no attempt was made to deliver them, and all that day and all of Monday they must have laid in the office, and had it not been for a telephone message sent by Dr. Paul of Algona to Dr. Harriman on Monday evening, the remains of Dr. Pride would have arrived here simultaneously with the tidings to his mother and sister of his death. If a team that could have been driven eight miles an hour had been started from Algona when the first message was sent, the man would not have laid dead over 36 hours within 50 miles of his nearest relatives and they in ignorance of the fact. And if there had been neither railway nor telegraph line to "Algona, Mrs. Thompson at least could have stood by the bedside of her dying brother before he breathed his last. The managers of the. .tqlflgrnph. .company,.,of course, screen"themselves behind' the statements that they "do not desire commercial business," that "Hampton has no night operator," that' they -are! "not obliged to keep their office open after 7 o'clock," and that they 'are not 'obliged to receive or pend messages on Sunday. The employes of the Hampton office should not be blamed, however heartless their conduct may seem to be in this case, as it was just exactly in accordance with the rules, regulations and practices'of. the telegraph monopoly that compels them to'do double work for half pay, and we do not write this to criticise them, but as a fair example of the way this great monopoly does business. Why does the government and why does the state legislature hesitate to take hold of this outrageous and heartless monopoly and straighten it out? They Sow Hobart. r/'Emmets^urguBent ..3§ ..over, to hear Hamlet, the delegation returning on the night'freight. The Reporter describes the return ride and says; It was asplendi'd delegation and the people of Algona were highly pleased with it. Every one of them" was highly pleased with the trip and felt- that the play more than nmply repaid them for the time and money 'spent, Then, too, such a delightful trip home in the early morning hours in a passenger coach behind a long freight train. The train was very accommodating and stopped a half hoar at Hobart to allow everybody an opportunity to vievy the architectural beauty of that city by moonlight. Another stop was made at Wbittemore for refreshments and at 8 o'clock the train arrived in Emmetsburg, to the intense satisfaction of the whole dele* gatipp, ^ . »T9lm Ft Puucotobe's Condition, , Dr» Owen of'Chicago, chief surgeon for the Illlnoie Central and Northwest* ern roafls, and. one of the rooet celebr^t* ed surgeons in-the country, pame to EortDpdge to .consult with IOP»! sur« geonsoyer the o«se of John F, Dim« combe, It was (Jiepovored that there wfts a fracture of the thigh bone, with* in the ball and socket Joint, It IB ajv most impossible to get ttt the , injured part nod there is danger of a, permanent phprteBjnganaetiflenlng'tpf the limb, HroHifl requlreihe ujepf Qrutoijei, a«d in 8 hours and SO taiHuteS he h asked 11? bushels in the field, He husked the fleet load of 62 bushels in 3 hour? and IS minutes.
