But It at present offers the ottly avallablei avenue worth ehteriag . ^fohtbttlbtt has failed because under it .Bdlatisfaetorf aroingeiBeht has been possible for such sale of liquors as everybody concedes to be legitimate and 'necessary, All forms of license have failed because they legalize or permit the saloon, and that institution is not and never will be tolerated by the growing temperance sentiment not only Of Iowa, but of the whole country. •Public control provides for. the legitimate -sale of liquors under such restrictions as are in the interests of public • ordjar and is therefore an advance on a prohibitory'statute. It takes the whole ' business out of the hands of the chiefly lawless element in control of the saloon and Is therefore an enormous step ' in advance from any form -of local option or license, It makes possible a thorough inspection of the ' liquors dispensed, which -is impossible .under any other •system, and which perhaps contains as much promise of excellent results 'for temperance and good health as any one feature of any possible liquor law. Many of those who have believed in a prohibitory statute or amendment now admit that the pharmacy law is a failure. In Des Moines when the saloon men circulated their second petition they had no difficulty in getting the names of the best citizens, in spite of an active campaign against them by the churches, because the drug stores were in such general disrepute. Every large city which closed the saloons has had the same experience. In the small, er towns the evil has not been as great, but J. J. Bruce, who was an active pro- \iibilionist, states over his own signa- • .ture that the drug stores at Eolfe have been more demoralizing and have caused more drunkenness than the saloons. The druggists as a class are as reputable as any class of business men. 1 If.dispensing liquor under a law as strictly guarded as the present phar- . macy law is, is a failure in their hands, - ( what prospect is there of making a suc- , cess of any plan of dispensing which leaves it to private parties, who have a distirict-husiness interest in making as liberal a profit as possible? Another weak point in the prohibitory program is the unlimited shipping in of liquors 16 r, aid thai the llqttdf fctisl- n§88' wilt be peFtottbefltly edfiducted by President IS Cleveland has sent the English gorfesfjofldehee 0n the Monroe 1 doctrine, a§ applied to the Venezuelan controversy, to the senate with & special Message.

SPEAKER REED will announce the committees in the'house of representatives the lust of this week. The main question is whether Henderson of Iowa or Cannon of Illinois will be chairman of the appropriation committee. Senator Allison is chairman of thecommit- tee in the senate and it would be a singular thing for two men from the same town to head these two chief committees in congress. DolliVer seems to be slated for Gear's place on the ways and means committee, really the best field of labor in congress. This committee has the tariff in charge.

NEWS AND OOMMENT. The Carroll Herald disposes of the argument that local manufacture of beer would cause any increased market or price for barley, etc.: "It wouldn't help the farmers one particle to have breweries reopened for business. Last year Canadian barley sold for less in Milwaukee than it cost western farmers to raise it. Our Iowa farmers must meet this competition and it doesn't matter whether the beer is made within the state or without it." Unless the consumption of liquor is going to be materially increased by locul manufacture there will be no increase in the demand for the grains it is made of. That is so apparent that it does not need argument. As a business matter, legalizing breweries and distilleries is very insignificant. • .'»*.».' ' . The contract with St. Louis for the national republican convention is calculated to shut out special booms for' presidential aspirants. The hall Is to hold 12,000 seats. St. Louis is to have 4,000, of which 1,000 are to be given to old soldiers and .distinguished guests under direction of the national committee. No picture of any living man is to decorate the walls, and no banner or design, calculated to aid any candidate, Can be displayed. It is to be a free field and a fair fight. FIELD, _i—t Mrs. Isadore Baker of lOwa City, }Whose beautiful tribute to the memory of Miss Anna 0. Ingham will be re- galled, has written the best little, poem that has been called out by the death of'Chicngo's genial man of genius, Eu^ gene Field. It appeared in the Chicago Tittles-Herald, and is suggested by Field's "Little Boy Blue," which was published in THETJPPER DES MoitffiS in noticing his death: Out in the alienee, Where Little Boy Blue wandered so far awaVi That he never come back to earth again _ But In song of a wistful day— The poet of child-life passed m a dream „ With never a song's farewell. Perchance he was seeking the Little Boy Blue, And found him—ah, who can tellf But ever, forever, while song shall be, The music of Little Boy Bitte Shalmng to our hearts in a minor key m Of the little toy friends so true That wait for the touch of a tiny hand, m ? e ,li 1 ^ sei ' 1 them and placed them there, The little toy dog and the soldier of tin Alone on the dust covered chair. And never again shall poet slug • A song that Is sweeter, more true, Than came to us with the laureate's love And loss of the Little Boy Blue. He longed for a clasp of the childish arms, And light of the wistful smile, But a love that Is dearer than mine," he said, " Is holding my boy the while." And thus the sweet Idyl of Little Boy Blue Is nearer our hearts today, The little toy soldier so staunch and true Is waiting for him alway, v But the poet of child life passed in a dream, With never a song's farewell. Perchance he was looking for Little Boy Blue, And found him—where all is well. , ISADORE BAKER. the fchlef Wtlfll &.]&:& S3S £*Es4£ 'tiC'Sk niuK in uQo USD Twtf ys&n *«* ~$*.8o.<, can have ad the huttbefg for for .188 Lgoih-g" ,, features, frftftfaUsfaen iftfiftT satis" Bed[»ith ftti MaMHflL 11 MMgK» ,tp the reading pflbHA TliS Mistofy, BeHftl, "LU& QtaMof Cehtflfy ' lH t th» Ufljted States," Will be continued; Just fidW it is approachiag a period of abs6fbib# Interest to the presetit fcenBraW6ti, the &m 'aclmthia- traMott of Presfdettt Oleveiaud, Scrilrnesr ( s Magazine ought to get careful t'onsidenittoti as a ChHsttttas gift, The $4.60 of or ought to get double cotiatdefatldn, Charles H.ii-ib- net's Sons, 163 FlM AVeaiie, New York.

If you are much of a traveller you have no doubt often noticed in passing a farm house that a dog will rush out, run alongside of the train as long as'he can keep up with it, then turn round and walk leisurely back to his starting point. This same performance he will repeat several times in a day, always starting from the same place and returning as though he had done a duty which he owed to himself :and to mankind.':" '•:.-.'.-/"" : •.••:'./.- :'•... ' Why a dog will act' in this strange manner is one of the-imponderables and we need ask for no answer except from the canine or from the man who claims to interpret monkey language. I -have conversed with engineers on the subject and they tell me that such demonstrations only cease when the career of the canine is ; cut short by being run oyer, a sad end, which nearly always overtakes him. * * * . The letter-writing poets still flourish and such addresses as those continue to grace the address side of envelopes: I'm on my way to Montana state. In Butte City I wish to wait. 'Till A. B. Brewster, .who is my host, Comes and takes me from the post. As the address comes in the second line I was spared from reading the entire poem until I had time to copy it. Then again: To Langdon, North Dakota, Take me there and let me stav. 'Till Oliver Moriarity Comes and takes me away. This is quite sensible, as the address is in the first line. People often ask If it would not be better to place the address on a letter first, in this way: Duluth, Minn., ' ' John Jpnes & Co., 51 Bluff street. i, It no doubt would be better if the custom was universal, but such addresses are so pare that they are a source of annoyance to anyone who has to > read them. Put the address on in the old way, in plain writing, not in Spencerian nourishes and you will be easily understood.

The lurid d'escriptio'n of Prof. Webster's lectures given by the Courier has caused a commotion over west, The Emrnetsburg Democrat takes the matter up, too seriously, in the following comment: The people of Emmetsburg can feel thankful that they did -not accept the offer of Prof. Webster of Chicago to deliver a series of lectures at ?15 per night. Had they done so they would have had an opportunity of learning that Jefferson was an anarchist; that Jackson was a stumbling fighting-cook; that the Declaration of Independence was an inflammatory document; and that it would have been as well if there bad been no American revolution. Such is the account the Algona papers give of his lectures in th,at city. , The prp> fessop onn also feel fortunate that his offer was not accepted by either of the lecture committees of Emmetsburg.

March 23 Mr, #rink*s store was closed by a lot of other creditors, ahd Carson, Plrie, Sdott & Co. Were left without any security whatever. They now cbme^n and assert that in fact Mr. Frink Was badly encumbered when he bought of them, Unit the property statement he made to secure credit was not true, that he secured the goods under false pretences, and that there was no sale. .They ask that the court give them the rightto take the gbods buck, their claim being in money $1,600 at this tittfe. JudgeCook andSullivan &McMahbn represent thetm On the other Mr.'Frlnk, who is repre- serited by Geb. E. Clarke, and -who asserts as against .them and as against the attaching creditors that he was doing a square business, that he had ample security, and that he would have come;out:aHright if the attachments had not been levied. On the other side also are the attaching creditors, who are represented by Geo. R. Cloud and Barney Kelley of Emrnetsburg, who are fighting both Mr, Pi'ink and Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co. They say that Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co. did not talk of rescinding the sale until they • had waived any right. That they proposed to join in attaching until they discovered there was nothing left for them, and then hatched this plan of claiming that they had been swindled. The taking of testimony began last Thursday and was confined to the issue between Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co. and Frink. The case between the creditors and Frink will come on later, and in this Mr. Frink has a. counter claim of $20,000 damages 'due on account of wrongful attachments. That will be tried at a later term of court. Judge Cooke opened the argument to the jury Monday" afternoon, Barney Kelley followed, and Judge Cook closed. Judge Thomas held an evening session to get done, and gave his instructions to the jury yesterday morning. The jury was out three quarters of an hour and brought in a verdict for Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co.

Geo. E. Clarke for Dr. Jacobs filed a motion to dismiss on the ground that Iowa courts cannot acquire jurisdiction in that way. Sullivan & McMahon appear with Judge Cook and J. C. Raymond with Mr.. Clarke. The question was argued all day to Judge Thomas and he took the matter under advisement, saying that is the most interesting, legal question he has had to consider for some time. The question turns on that clause of the national constitution which guarantees to all citizens of other states any rights possessed by citizens of Iowa. One supreme court.has construed this to sustain Judge Cook's position. Another has construed it differently. Tim Iowa courts have never had such a case, The Bohn Fence Case. Judge Carr was up from Des.

Arenberg, which has proven .to 'bflj a very complicated affair. S. L. Arenberg nearly two years ago entered into" partnership, as he claims, with Joseph Hyman, but, as the latter claims^ with' L K. Hyman, todotusiness'in Algona'. 1 The only question involved in this, par- * ticular case was whether Joseph or L K. Hyman was the partner. The firm name was Hyman & Arenberg. The .business accumulated, debts instead of • profits. The stock 'was finally moved***'* back to Fort Dodge. The Hymans^ claim that the old firm was dissolved on March I, last; Aronberg claimed it had never been dissolved. Joseph Hyman was on Arenberg's note at the Commercial National bank for about $4.300, 'he claimed as surety and Arenberg claimed as partner. Letters were produced which Joseph Hyman had written to wholesale firms in which he stated that he was interested in the firm of Hyman & Arenberg. Joseph Hyman explained that he was backing his brother and wrote the letters to give him credit. He admitted that the letters obligated him to these firms, but denied that they made him a partner. The case was a very complicated one for the jury to unravel and it was out about 12 hours and returned a- verdict for defendant. The cocktail letter, which occasioned ' considerable amusement in the court room, and was alternately quoted by both sides as evidence that Hyman was and was not a partner, reads as follows: FORT DODGE, Sept. 15, 1896.—Friend Arenberg: Your letter of the 18th received. I will do all I can to strengthen your credit. If any body will make inquiries " about .you, bankers or Chicago houses, I will try hard to give a good report. Busi-* ness is quiet here. We are all well, hope you are the same. Your friend, • • JOSEPH HVMAN. Keep up your courage and take a cock-" tail. , , , The letter is dated Sept. 15, last. 1 At ' that time Hyman was on the $4,300 npte 1 ,' , ' and was unconscious that Arenberg'^ father held a mortgage on the Leader stock for $6,000 dated Sept. 10. Aren« berg bought four or five thousand dollars worth of goods on that trip, and on.- ' Oct. 1 his mortgage to his father was ' Hied, which precipitated this litigation. The verdict that Jos. Hyman is Aren- berg's partner would make all these, claims of the wholesale houses good, if ' it was not that they have elected to rescind the sales and already brought suit to recovar the goods. Now it appears that they must recover the goods by getting the mortgage set aside.
