Even if the plan had no , merit at all, so long as it is advanced iu the interests of better service to the county, the motives of officials who get "cussing" enough any way should not be attacked by men who have them' selves been in office and who know how unfair and how disreputable it is to slur the man because that seems, to be a readier weapon than fair argument against the measure. THE UPPER DES MOINES has no interest whatever In the proposed' change, although it believes that It is a change which in tbe majority of the counties of Iowa would solve a vexed problem and be of great public benefit. 1 Whether it is adopted , or not is neither here nor there to us. ; 'But'the supervisors In bringing it forward have shown that they are giving study to these problems of county gov- • eminent and that they are willing to shoulder the responsibility of advocating anything they believe to be an Improvement, For this they are entitled to praise, which they will not fail to ' receive from all who are willing to encourage 'efficient and watchful public , officials. In another column we reproduce many expressions of opinion from neighboring papers on the proposal made by the board. They will prove .• to be interesting reading. , TilE "UONA FIDE" FAUCIS. The action of the supervisors on county printing is at least stirring up discussion. ' Two letters have come to ' this office already about it, one of which shows up tbe present absurd method of selecting official papers in so . ridiculous a light that we take the liberty of publishing it without giving names: What has been the practice in your county relative to publishers counting them. selves subscribers to their own papers in submitting their lists in connection with an application to be made official papers? Do you think a man can be and is a bona fide yearly subscriber to his own paper simply because he takes a copy home each week? An early .reply will greatly oblige, etc. Here is the situation in. a neighboring county—editors putting their names in as subscribers to their own papers in order to swell out big enough to be made official, Last week in Des Moines Lafe Young received a letter from the editor of a leading paper in another county, asking his definition of a " bona fide yearly subscriber.'" All -pn account of a big contest that was on. Dozens of law sui.ts are already started all over the state this spring, growing i out of this annual farce of trying to sift -padded subscription lists. And after it is all over the public and the supervisors and the publishers are all the worse ,off. Tbe board might as well spend its time trying to decide which store sells • -the most goods, and what a bona fide sale really is, whether a merchant can sell to himself, etc. It would have just as much to do with any real interest of the public as the printing contests have. ,The plan the Kossuth board suggest may not be wholly unobjeotion- ' able, but it does away with this' whole ''official" business and insures .three "times the present circulation of the boo,rd proceedings at half the expense, * STILL ANOTJIEU CASE, , IP Story cpupty the printing contest ; ' /lasted three days la?t week.

At present the fishers are depopulating the lakes by using agrefr number of hooka and lines, evading the law against trot,lines in this way. The normal school question is likely to be an aggressive one. The state teachers have a committee at work with Prof. Cooper of Des Moines chairman, He rather favors a bill provid for five schools to be located by com mission nnd to be supported by tbe state at an expense not exceeding $8, 000 each a year, the towns chosen to provide buildings, etc. Such bills have not been favorably considered a previous sessions, But something i very likely to be done this winter and this measure, if vigorously pushed may be passed. No bill has been Intro duced. Representative Mayne is watching the normal school matter. He will in troduce no bills, until he sees bow thi turns. If he can be will get Col. Spen cer's delinquent tax scheme 'adopted but the normal school will be his firs care. " . * E. D. Chassell of LeMars is an an nounced candidate for secretary o state next year. He was a member o the lust legislature and is One of th best men in. Iowa and. has hosts o friends. Speaker Byers recalls his experlene in Kossuth county with pleasure. I the spring of 1874 he and Mr. Dagget put in 30 acres of flnx on the R. I.

While he wa clerking in a store in Shelby county book agent came along and, dispensin with the usual form of securing hi victim's signature, signed subscribers names himself and then sent the book to them and tried to collect his pay Young Byers urged several to stun suit rather than pay, and went into jus tice court and defended for them After he finished talking about tha book agent the attorney told him h ought to be a lawyer, and he acceptei the advice and also an offer of a plac in the office. • The fight for Senator Allison has be gun in earnest. His unanimous reriom [nation to the senate, Wednesday, wa attended by a demonstration intends to express Iowa's intentions at the na tional convention. Among the speak ers Thos.D.

One of the' tattef is said m have approached t^esideHt Pttrrott, and although an enlife stfftfiger, to have told him that the appointment of a certain senator to a certain chairmanship was absolutely demanded In the interests of his section. The genial lieutenant governor looked at him a moment abd then in his blandest manner suggested that he Ought to name the remainder of the committee inasmuch as a chairman alone could not control its reports, little while later a rap was heard at the lieutenant governor's door, "Come in," and in walked the chairman maker. " Here are the names of the rest of the committee," he said, as he handed in Slip of paper and bowed himself out. Representative Early has a bill to legalize and regulate party primary elections. It is modeled after the Ken tUcky and Illinois laws. Jas, N, Mil ler, formerly of the Sac Sun, commends the bill and writes: "Some years ago I helped to inaugurate the system o primary elections in Sac county, and i has worked very well ever since. Las summer it fell to my lot to introduce a resolution in the Polk county. republl can convention, instructing the countj committee to prepare rules for prlmar; elections and submit them to the re publican voters at the caucuses thi coming spring. The resolution wa passed unanimously and it"is a safe pre diction that the voters will adopt the system.

This plan is certainly sufficiently complicated, and inasmuch as it Wil. take one-half of the membership of the house to wake up the five committees, the house might us well have proceeded in committee nf the whole to consider the code, makitig use of ts regular standing committees. II will be seen that there Is ft radical difference in the two methods of procedure on the part of the house and senate, but whore all are in earnest in desiring a solution it can well be concluded that the two bodies will agree upon some plan and proceed inteltKeiitly to business. In connection with the code revision it can be noted that at present there is not nearly so much talk of an extra session ar formerly. As an evidence of the desire ol the members to avoid an extra session, i' can be noted they all have their minds up on the work of the code, and have had from the beginning, while if an extra session was contemplated they would naturally proceed with the regular session work first and postpone the code. The usual visiting committees have been decided upon and the house has appointed its part of the committees as follows: State University, Iowa City—Grote Mayne. THE COUNTY FEINTING. Among the military men at Des Moines for the inauguration was Col Canfleld of Boone, Mr. Canfield is re publican'county chairman and an ajj gressive and clean republican polit: cian. Ho says that a feature of eac year's republican gathering in Boone i the reading of a detailed report of th receipts and expenses of each cam paign.' He is called upon to give in de tail exactly how many dollars and cent go for cigars, carriages, etc,, etc., ever item being stated in full. He says th result is extremely satisfactory an beneficial.to the party organization and adds that he would not accept th chairmanship now unless he coul make such a report. If there is any liquor legislation will be an act legalizing breweries The prohibitory amendment will no pass. The.best friends of the. republ: can party hope and predict that th legalizing act will also be dropped But the river city contingent is aggres sive, A curious infatuation possesse some republicans that if they can onl conciliate the liquor men they will ki! the democrats. The case of Dr. Stew art, republican candidate for the legis lature in Johnson county, is an excel lent illustration of the outcome of sue! ostrich tactics. He thought if h could only catch the brewery vote h would copper bottom his legislativ canvass, Accordingly he announce! that he would not be governed by a re publican caucus but would vote fo breweries in any event. The bait dit not bring him a vote, and he lost 20 1 republican votes and Mr, Byington holds the seat. LIFE YOUNG'S LETTER, It will be the purpose of these letters no to speculate on results, but to tell what ha transpired. If the proceedings of the t,y houses for each week are compressed into :. column and a half, there will be no room for display. Agreeable to custom, the senior membo; from Polk, Mr. Doubleday, called the house to order at 10 o'clock Jan, 18, The firs day's session of the house and senate was hurried- in all respects to give the members of tbe general assembly an opportunity ti attend, the funeral of the late Hon, Georgi G. Wright, Resolutions to Judge Wrighfi memory were adopted in both houses unan* imously by rising votes. Members of the general assembly have realized almost from the time of their election that the important pressing question would be tbe consideration and adoption oj the proposed revision of the codje. YQIU readers are familiar with Ijhe present situa tion of the proposed now code. It has been reported from the commissioners, printed in a large volume, accompanied by a reporl of 800 pages. The proposed code makes over 1,000 printed pages. It is divided into iitles and chapters much on the sajie plan as the present code, So far there bee been much disagreement as to the manner of pvoceeding with the work. The senate has agreed upon the appointment of a standing committee of fifteen members on the pode, with authority to subdivide the work and assip different parts $nd title? to the prop.

Afld a£ & le'Ss C'OBt at Whittemore Champion: The board' action, although it seems to be a mov in the right direction, viz., for th benefit of the tax payers, has brough forth an article in the columns of a official paper composed of caustic re marks principally pointed at Mr. Chubb the present chairman, accusing him o "bosslsm," "being a majority of th board," etc. However much trut there may be in this, we cannot say but It seems reasonable to suppose tha our legislators, who enacted the law providing for the printing of the pro ceedings of the board of supervisors did it for the purpose of giving th tax payers an opportunity to knov what was being done with the count funds, and not for the purpose of givin one or two papers a mouthpiece on th county udder, to the detriment of ever other paper in the county. The mat ner in which it has been heretofor conducted has obliged unofficial paper to print the board proceedings as matter of news, either by supplemen or in regular issue, at a considerabl cost, for the sake of keeping up the! standing as a newspaper, in competi tion with the official papers, which ar paid for the service. If exhorbitan prices are being paid for other count v printing, by all means call for a genera reform, but from our standpoint i seems unjust to censure a man for man; festing unusual fertility of brains, bj originating common sense ideas of re form for the public good. If the boart proceedings can be .printed at a les cost in sufficient quantity to supplj every tax payer of the county with copy, as the board say that they can, i would be infinitely better than th present mode of service, by which no more thun half or two-thirds of th citizens are given their just rierht which are paid for by them. Th Champion will say amen to any reform which may be introduced for the gen oral welfare of the public, Livermore Gazette: Kossuth county' board of supervisors think that count printing is too expensive, and the; have postponed the matter of choosing the official county papers this year tii they can hear from their senator an representative regarding it. The have sent them some resolutions askin that they have the law amended so a to simplify the thing. .What the want is that they be allowed to hav the proceedings of the county boar printed in supplement form and fur nished free to every paper in the coun ty. This would give them much rnor extensive circulation, cost only abou half what it now does, and do away with the annual squabble over tb printing, The plan has been suggest ed to them by the service now being rendered in the county }n this way" The unofficial paper in Algona has fo some months been furnishing a. repor of the proceedings on supplements t< five outside papers in the county, and this unofficial service has reached a least twice the tax payers reached hi the official publications, without ex pense to the county. The outside papers have been glad to pay for these supplements, An official service o this kind, the supervisors think, i practicable, economical, and, devoid o the objectionable features attending the selection of official papers, Wesley Reporter: The proposition If passed would no dQjL)bJ v save to the county o/ fewfhun"'drgd''^dbllnrs eacl yenr-nnd give- the '-proceedings more circulation than is dope by the olc plan. To be sure, from a selfish stand point, the papers having the larges 5iroujation would suffer a material lols, but out of the abundance of their generosity they would no doubt g]a<jly oqnsent to benefit the public in this manner. It would also place every )ft.per in the county on. an equality in this respect anfl .give each an equa chance to bid for its publication. If by .he change the public will be better ierved ftnd the county exchequer saved rom disbursing a few hundred dollars each year then the bpaj-a of supervisors will have the hearty endorsement o' Reporter au<l every tax payer it?

If he should convert the editors and make, them stop lying, it would cause them to get an entirely, different make-up on their papers. And Hinchon would have to discontinue his aditorial page entirely. Swea City Herald: THE UPPER DES MOINES says that C. B. Hutchins holds the medal for November milk at the Algona co-operative creamery. He received $1.24 1-5 per hundred pounds. That's not much. Nels Pearson received $1.28 per hundred for November milk from the Swea City creamery, and four or five more received upwards of $1.24. For December it is expected that as high as $1.50 will be paid here for the premium test. WESLEY NEWS NOTES. Wesley Wants a Store, .Lumber Yard, Etc.—The New Elevator Opens. WESLEY, Iowa, Jan. 20.—Studer & Mathies have sold their stock of merchandise to Corey & Neville, who will auction it all. off, commencing today. This will be the final Windup of what was once known as the " Alliance" store. Mr, Studer has become tired of mercantile life and will devote his entire time to his farm, while Mr. Ma- .thies is undecided what he will do in the future. , Tbos.'PresneU returned home Friday from Ohio where he has been visiting friends and relatives. There never was a better opening for a good general store than there is now in Wesley, The right kind of a man could do a fine business. Another lumber and coal yard could also make money here, The rapidity with which the large territory tributary to our town is developing means a greater demand for lumber and coal each year. Revival meetings are now in progress here at the M. E. church, Rev, Plummer is his own evangelist and is meeting with good success. Our school teachers are now nicely located in the new building'and it is needless to say they will give better satisfaction in the more commodious quarters, Prof, Eiler has proyen him' self to be a very efficient instructor the past term and patrons may rest assured that we will have a fine school, in the future, The officials of the Milwaukee road were here to day on a special. They had all the grain deajers at the depot and were very desirous to know if the grain tributary to this station was com. ing this way, A. J. Pierspp is visiting his friends at Nashua.. The new elevator will commence to receive grain this week. H. C, pollen, beck, who will do tbe buying, needs no ip.tro4u.pUon }n these parts. Sam Wilfpra gave a, lecture pp. ssse tf the Kernty) scbopl house lajjt Friday, A large sttenOanqe ana a, lecture are report' ** R, B. Hopkins, our M a Minneapolis official history will be of local interest: When It became necessary to prove to tbe world that the United States of America had a right to exist among the nations of the earth, which was the issue really decided by the war of 1812, tbe Society of Red Men, the legitimate* successor of the Sons of Liberty, through the St. Tamlna societies of Maryland, Pennsylvania and New York, took a prominent and chivalrous part, When, after 20 years of good service for freedom and friendship, the Society of Red Men was succeeded by the present Improved Order of Red Men, there' was made the beginning of that noble work of charity and benevolence our order has done for the past 60 years. So bur order : is an organization of men banded together to visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead educate and care for the orphans. Inspired by tbe patriotic memories of its ancient landmarks, it regards the history of our country as its own, and it claims by virtue of its patriotic origin to be the oldest fraternal organization of purely American origin, inspiration, and teaching. Its ritualistic work is founded on the manners, traditions and customs of the aborigines of the American continent, and .therefore stands alone for originality, beauty and dramatic effect. It copies from no other order in its ceremonies, but seeks to delineate and perpetuate, with historical accuracy, but refined and idealized, the form and customs of the "original people" of our land. Within our wigwams the student of history will find food for thought and knbwled ;e of a race soon to pass away. The lover of fraternity will meet congenial friends, whose loyalty and fidelity will stand the test of trial. The .patriotic will help perpetuate the noble deeds of patriotic ancestors and assist in transmitting to posterity the pure principles of liberty and human equality, of right, duty and privilege, which form the foundation of our glori- ious republic. MES. AUG. BBOWN'S CASE, She Has Reason to Feel Grateful to the United Workmen for Their Friendly Aid. The United Workmen are getting to be a strong society in Algona and hereabouts, and are evidently a very helpful set of people to the members. A, committee consisting of C. Byson, W. J. Studley, and Chas. Laage have assisted Mrs. Aug. Brown, whose husband died in Irvington a short time ago, to buy the Swan Olson farm in, Union township, and she is now com- i fortably located in a home of her own, ' the result of his membership. She has written a letter in the Loyal Workman, /I the organ of the society, addressed to'j the officers of Algona lodge, - No. 273, in which she says in substance: We feel it our duty to extend to you, our thanks for the many kind offerings and acts of assistance shown us when, death came to our home. And espe-, cially for the promptness of the officers' in securing the payment of the $2,000; -insurance benefit held by our late husband and father. May God bless your worthy order and may your good work, go on and your membership increase. I heartily recommend the A. O, U. W, to all who look for protection.
