We Could fill a column or so with references to the board's plan of publishing the official proceedings, but our, readers are fully informed already, and one'dlipp'lrigffrom the Germanla«tand-i ard will bo sufficient. The Standard! wisely and sligaclously remarks: The county board of supervisors are in tercepting with the state legislature to, have the board proceedings printed Cheaper inKossuth county. This will (if passed) give each paper iu the county <u chance to' secure the work and will, stop 'the 'inkling feeliiig that is going the rounds 'df -otltside edition. The Courier has already dropped the discussion and the Republican will . doubtless do likewise, and 'the whole matter may as well be left with #he ^Standard's summing up. REPUBLICAN Now that the bond bill is disposed <of the tariff bill passed by the representatives some weeks.'ago will come up iin the senate. It is thought that the'free silver majority will attach a free coinage amendment to this also. The bouse will not concur and a reference committee will undoubtedly cut out the, coifiage clause. Then the tariff bill- 1 will come up in both houses on its mer-[ its and will pass, lit us estimated, by a; close vote in the senate. President Cleveland has, already announced hist intention of vetoing it. If he does all the work of this congress will be, ae . Mr. Dolliver said some time ago, a mere splashing in the water. Speaker Heed'e wisdom in urging a short session becomes more and more apparent. Congress can do nothing until the coming presidential election gives the republicans the whole .administration of affairs. the Allison boom, to escape at ffott $600 Upwafds. This Jegislatuf-e should hot adjourn without making some provision for the pefmafletit support of the atnte uni* verslty. ufitil now it has existed from oiie session to another without any as- eufatice of a ttew lease of lite, It has had to coffie before each legislature for an appropriation to pay running expenses. And when it does come its officers are at once charged with being lobbyists, The university asks a per-' rnanentta* of a fraction of a mill,, enough to give it a permanent endowment equal to its actual needs. There is no reason why the request should not be granted. Such a tax will cost the state no more than the present per* iodical appropriations do and will at once put the university out of tho Held of biennial beggars at Des Moines. Because state appropriations are iti big sumsipeopleget a very erroneous idea of the relative burden of state and local tuxes. As a matter of fact the entire state government with all its costs takes only 80 cents a head out of Kossuth county. Our local taxes amount to nearly, 15 times aa much as our state tax. All tho benevolent public institutions, asylu'tns, reform schools, hospitals, schools, official salaries, "pldsens and stealins," etc., cost only one-tenth as much as the district schools of the county alone. The moment a, new state appropriation is asked, such as 'ao .annual expense of $40,000 for five mew normal schools, a great hue and cry is raised about taxation, when in fact many times what that amount meaaw to each taxpayer is fooled away in local public expenses without even passing notice. Some who criticise state expenditure are consistent and cover the field of local taxation. But the majority who rail at what the legislature does, do it for effect merely. It is -easier to pose as a reformer whea ,the thing to be reformed is in conspicuous public view. Lafe Young is making a vigorous protest against cheapening the price of newspapers. The reading public is with him. The people are willing to suits. And no be satisfactory THE BOND BILL BEATEN. The rank and file of the republicans will not grieve much over the disposi-. lion of the bondfcilHn the senate. It | SOIKGo ' ira an was loaded dow ( n with a free silver coinage amendment by a vote of 42 to 35. The house of representatives will not concur and the whole matter will doubtless be pigeon holed. As between bonds and free silver coinage it is much .of a question whether the senate is not ta near the real republican sentiment as the bouse is, Congressman Sam, Clark of Kepkuk, who voted against the bond bill in the house, wrote a letter explaining his vote to the Fail-field Ledger which completely vindicated Jlis opposition, Running the government by issuing bonds is not the republican method. President Cleveland , should have all the credit there is in the bond issue and the republicans flhould wait until they can have republican policies adopted, It is a fortunate thing, that congress is not going to be able to endorse the bond policy, pay for anything if it newspaper can long which does not pay the publisher. Senator Funk's bill to tax express companies is along the right line. The Pullman Car company should not be •overlooked. Congressman Dolliver asked a tariff question not long ago that has not-been answered. It was to explain why the average value of imported cattle has declined from $21.50 in 1894 to $4.80 in 1895, thedecllnebeingcontomporaneous with the change in duties from $10 a imposed by the McKinley tariff'to r cent, ad valorem under the Wi'l- tariff. This illustrates the fraud of ad valorem duties, and shows the practical workings of ,one clause of the present tariff. receipts of the coffi- Jfatiles. The companies are required to report theif fesetpts, and 4f they fefuse to do so J,h§ local ftdfeHtS will t>S conipelled to do It. This bill will evoko a considerable contest. The senate committee on public health has agreed to t-atse the age of consent Iti females to IS years; the ladles of the W. C. T. tT. demand tha-t'it be raised to IS years. Senator Goifell has a bill pending to appoint a veterin-ary surgeon for each county, who is to be a deputy under the state veterinarian. This deputy would have authority to visit the dairy herds of the County, charging the fee to the dairymen. The liquor question In all forms is well nigh lost:siglit of In the general push occasioned % the new code. At theiclose of the third week there are indications that there will be a concerted and organized effort to change the en^re plan of the soldier's monument, which Is now Well-nigh completed, Senator Waterman has-a resolution pending to remove everything pertaining to the .names and faces df living men and to substitute ideal faces. Representative Crow has introduced a resolution to remove the figure of a woman on top, which.-at present represents " Victory," for the purpose of substituting the statue of a soldier. There is also dissatisfaction with the location of the monument. The visiting committees having returned, quite generally report the state Institutions to bo in good order and confirm a demand made by boards of trustees for large appropriations for buildings and other improvements. A resolution is ponding in the house to stop tho introduction of hills.after Fob, 15. It will meet with strong opposition, but Its purpose is to advance the code. Tho bicycle has made Its appearance in the general assembly by a bill offered by Mr. Gurley to permit wheelmen to ure public highways. The Third district republicans have named Chas. E. Pickett of Waterloo to succeed Al Matthews as a member of the •board of regents of tho university. Mr. Matthews has served 12 years. - The same caucus renominated J. S. Jones for member of the agricultural college board. The house code committee held a meeting Saturday for consultation. All but throe of tho 85 members were present and unanimously agreed to make a serious and earnest attempt to put the code through this session and avoid the extra session. After some discussion a resolution by Mr. Early providing that no bills amendatory of the code or the commissioners' report should be introduced or considered by tho committee after the 15th of February, was passed. This will leave the code committee comparatively free after the middle of February to complete their work without the interruption of new bills. Most of the members seemed to be quite confident that they can put the code through this session, at least by prolonging this session to 120 days. LAFE YOUNG. IN THIS tfEIGHBOKHOOD.

To the Editor: During the last few weeks we have had the pleasure of meeting many of theifarmers of north ern Iowa. We find many complaints of the extreme low price of their grain and high price of short-time money. We do not wonder at their condition. We say in all kindness toward them, that in our opinion these conditions are largely the farmer's fault. The farmers who complain are usually those who either rent or are carrying a large indebtedness on farms purchased in the last three years. There was never a country better adapted for stock raising than northern Iowa, yet I find many of these settlers do not make enough butter for their own use, often keeping but one single, lonesome, crophorned, short tailed cow, that will not give milk until in the summer, and close by yoU will find a long-nosed rooter in shape of a hog. They sell their grain at any price they can get, which is usually the Chicago price, 'less the freight and small commission at each end for handling. Many are today hauling corn 10 to 12 miles, selling at 11 to 15 cents, oats, 10 to 11 cents, trying to cancel their indebtedness past due. They never can get out of debt until they manufacture their raw material into live stock. It is said by those who should know, that one can feed 25 cent corn to $3.25 hogs and come out even at least. What would our farmers think of a man owning a pickle factory, who would let his factory remain idle and sell his cucumbers to someone else to make into pickles? Or the miller who would let his mill lay idle and sell his wheat to a competitor to make into flour? Or the mill owner who would sell off his timber in the woods letting some one else manufacture the logs into lumber and reap the profits in the manufacture? The farmer would say these men were foolish. So they would be, and equally foolish is the farmer who sells his grain-and allows others to manufacture it into live stock, the latter making wages for liheir labor, the former doing business .for nothing. The renters complain they can't afford to pay $2 per acre .cash rent ifpr as good land as there is in the United States, They are about correct, they can't and sell the raw material on the market, letting their corn stalks, hay stack bottoms, etc., go to waste.

He does it by saving every bit of his feed and manufacturing it into milk, butter, cheese, beef, and pork. About Jan. 1 we were in a small town near here, when a man called for half a pound of good butter; he laid down 10 cents; the merchant says 15 cents, please; butter 80 cents per pound! Think of if,, farmers; 2i bushels of corn for one pound of butter. Of course this was creamery butter, but good dairy butter was worth 16 to 20 cents at the same time. Farmers, you may say you can't go Into the stock business. None of you are so poor that you cannot ,own two cows. In six years you can have over 40 head of stock, the ordinary increase In case a calf dies you can buy a heifer calf for a very small sum, and a yearling steer and $5 can be exchanged for two heifors. We have traveled during the last seven years through the great farming states of Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Nebraska, and have studied the tactics of the different farmers, and unless our farmers in limited circumstances begin to raise stock and Not without reason did a cm-respond* eht IB an opening number of the AU gona Bee exclaim, " we are of the opih* ion that there are not many such places as Algona. What town," he continues, " has the same number of institutions for intellectual culture and amuse* ment?" And then with the generous enthusiasm of the closing days of 1857 in this log cabin settlement, enumerated the " reading club," the u literary society" and the "council fire," three exponents of Algona's culture. The Bee was the production of the reading club, and naturally placed that centerof literary activity in the lead, but with the characteristic generosity of a metropolitan journal it gives due credit to its competitors, admitting that although a "lesser light" the literary society "is not to be snuffed out" and that the council fire "would produce quite a glimmer." But no such attractions are advertised for either as the correspondent hints at in connection with the reading club, for he says that here sometimes "the youngsters deport themselves very naughtily in pilfering now and then a kiss from their fair friends" and adds, " who can blame them?" Echo answers after these 40 years " Who, indeed?" if these occasional pilferings have in any way contributed to the freshness, original- lty,-and spirit of this unique publication. There was evidently one cynic in the community for he suggests rather satirically in a communication as a need of the town, "a few more literary societies and a few more evenings each week on which to hold them." But the big majority evidently believed in the societies, and judging from the columns of the Bee, believed in the fourth society enumerated by another correspondent: "Algona is not destitute of societies. We have secret societies, as the council fire. Then we have the literary society, and head and shoulders above all the others the reading club. But this is not what we are going to talk about. There is one more society we dearly prize.. That is the society of young ladies. Algona is blessed with b'feauti- ful, interesting and accomplished young ladies, etc., etc." • • Algona in those days was a social and intellectual Athens. The week was a whirl of gayety and amusement. Another correspondent to the Bee describes the scene, "From Monday evening till the same again we are rapidly and I hope cheerfully passing from one form to another, sometimes engaged in the more useful avocations of the world and in quick succession follow the various kinds of entertainment and pleasure which are going the rounds in our generally quiet though now somewhat excited little village. From listening to the eloquence of our divine when he earnestly and seriously talks to us about the future, we pass cheerfully to the room "of our reading club. From the club we pass to the council fire. From thence we pass quickly to the concert room of 'Jennie Lind.' And then we have one of the real spices, a surprise party. And last and not least we find ourselves seated in Congress hall." Easily chief of all the societies was the reading club. It was organized in December, 1857. The first issue of the Bee is dated Dec. 27 of that year and the Bee began at the second or third meeting. The club was organized at the J.«W. Moore cabin, where now the old Henderson home stands in the south part of town, then enjoying with Father Taylor's cabin, which is to be erected this fall by the old settlers, the proud distinction of sawed floor and shingles. Its meetings came every Monday evening at the various cabins and after the first meeting or two were Clij FaHdafigo.hall), but by a vote ft the society and M fift act 6f t*6tiftesy to ifce ctfttfteii fife the liter-atf satiety «iu Meet to debute cm Friday next. Question? 'Resolved, That a scolding wife is a greater nuisance than .a smbkifig chiHiftey.' Chief disputants, Geo. F Taylor and HOB, W, A. Moore. All afe invited to attend,"• But the lite*, ary society devoted itself to wore eefi. ons problems and in the See of Noy. & 1858, when the hard times and panic had pushed Algona sorely, the following '•'notice"appears: "The Algona Literary society meets every Saturday evehing at the toWfi hall Until further notice. Question foP debate: 'R^ solved, That it is expedient that a law staying executions be passed by the legislature of Iowa, itistaediatek' iphief speakers, affirmative, Lewis H Sraithr negative, Ambrose A, Call/ An enthusiastic} reporter finds himself seated in Cottgresd hall " very much ia* terested with our gifted orators, heroes and statesmen as they burst forth ia glowing language on Walkerism, Mof- monism, and all the various isms of the day. But alas, notwithstanding it is necessary in order to make up a vari* ety, they are too bashful to lecture on Bloomerism." None of these societies flourished in the summer. The Bee of March, 18o8, foresaw this and advised them to consolidate, but evidently nothing came of the suggestion. As it said, "The n !gh Is H re shortening and the roads will soon be bad" and three nights out of each week to literature was more than even Algona was equal too, with tho surprise parties, singing schools, etc., still to be provided for. In fact of all the societies of that memorable winter Father Taylors singing school alone survived, and that, until well on to the '70s was a never failing source of musical education to the youngsters. The Bee of Feb. 15, 1858, contains this notice: "Singing school is had once a week by appointment, Rev. C.. Taylor teacher. All lovers of or connoiseurs in music are invited to call. And we would say to all who would learn to sing under one of the most competent and accomplished vocalists of the age, now is your time." Stripped of the enthusiastic verbiage characteristic of a young journal, this notice was truthful. Father Taylor was thoroughly educated in vocal music, a good singer himself, and an excellent teacher. And his picture as he used to stand in the old town hall with his tuning fork in hand trying to instill some of the rudiments of music into the "kids," will long remain with the boys and girls who grew up in those pioneer days. The history of the Bee itself as outlined in the various announcements of its various editors, with some account of what it was, is reserved for another time. THE WEEK'S TRANSFERS.
