Thirty years ago Algonians staged it to Boonesboro to take the cars. The Northwestern had just arrived in the neighborhood and Boonesboro's fortune seemed to be made. But today Boonesboro is only the Fifth ward of Boone, and besides the court house, which stands as a monument for lost opportunities^ it has little to distinguish it from any other suburb of a 1'0,000 'city. ' The Northwestern wanted $10,000 -for making Boonesboro its headquarters. But Boonesborp knew that the Northwestern had to come any way and kept its money. That is how it happened that Judge Holcomb, so entertainingly told about by John Brainerd in the current Annals of Iowa; was enabled to become wealthy, for he bought land at Boone and the Northwestern put its depot at Boone and ran down thgi first gully away from Boonesbom, and so Boone is the'city where the editors met. Boone claims 10,000 people, has 23 miles of sewerage which has cost $80,000, has all its main streets paved with brick manufactured at home, has the Northwestern shops and all the rail- way hands for the divisions on either side of it, and besides is in the center of a ring of coal mines which turn out 8,000 cars a year. Its streets are solidly built of brick with a fine sprinkling of modern three-story stone and pressed "brick blocks, its bouses are centers of wealth and elegance, its churches and schools in keeping with theirgurround- ings. . The editors were royally entertained. They were met at the depot and escorted to the big &nights of Pythias haU, where, after the evening's program, they were introduced to the young people of the city and inveighed into tbe misty mazes of the waltz, etc., until a late hour. Friday was devoted to the regular program, and in the evening a large audience met in the Presbyterian church to listen to an address on H Liberty of the Press" by Judge Ktnne of tbe supreme court, It eo complete and comprehensive it was ordered printed at the so- ,«i§ty's expense, Following its delivery the church parlors were thrown open the guests were seated at an elab- banquet, eating and toasting, the tetter by e«oh talent as Chas, ]H, Mon- '|T$r, H, p.

" eembsP of Cafroil. TheW are "two delegates to bo chosen. The Nevada Kepfesentatlve announces that state Auditor McCarthy will be a candidate Id succeed himself. He is one of the moat deservedly popular men who has evef held Office In Iowa, and he Will* probably be reiiominated without opposition. If the'Early bill to cut out the 66 per cent, clause of the mulct law and substitute 80 per cent, passes dearly every county in fowa Will have saloons, A petition requiring only 60 per eent. of the'.Voters can be secured almost any where. Whether this will improve existing conditions or not is a question. On general principles, however, republicans should be careful about modify ing the present law inasmuch as the campaign Was made with it as an accepted compromise. The.Nevada Journal is likely to win in itecontest in Story county for the official printing. It advertised openly that it would take yearly subscribers at 25 cents a year. The supervisors held that these subscribers could not 'be counted, but on what pretense is .not known. If the Journal while advertising its rates at $1 or $1.50 a year had taken 25 cent subscriptions, they would properly be thrown out. But when an open 25 cent rate is made we fail to see why it is not legitimate. There is nothing to.prevent a publisher from selling his paper for 26 cents if he can affor'd it. The contest shows what this whole official printing business as at present provided for means to the legitimate newspaper publishers. There is nothing but:demoralization at the end of such fights as this in Story county. John Brainerd of Boone is one of the pioneers. Restarted the Clear Lake In dependent back in 1858 and for the past 25 years has edited the Boone Standard. He has his opinions about newspaper business. Here is one put vigorously this week: "Nothing but a damn fool can run a. paper and not make a few enemies." The age of consent bill comes up in the senate today. The judiciary committee have a majority report which fixes the age at 14 years with a limit of 16 years where the girl is proven to be of previous good character. The minority report favors 18 years. There will be a hot debate, chiefly by the supporters of the minority report, which ought tb be adopted without any quibble. But after it Is adopted there will be no great change inipubllc or private morals. The State Register has THE UPPER DES MOINES credited with an item expressing solicitude for McKinley in Iowa. THE UPPER DES MOINES has not usually been regarded an exponent of McKlnleyism, and while it considers the major a great popular leader it don't expect him to 'bother Allison in this state. The item belonged to somebody else. Cyrenus Cole has been in Dubuque visiting Senator Allison at. his home. The result is an eight column sketch in the Register, containing information of value and giving a pen picture of the modest and plain life of the senator. . Uteffionflffietit subject for discussion. The result has teen a general clearing of tbe at- ttoSphef*. Both side* understand the situation better, thon formerly. It has been discovered that a considerable part of the gfetteftkldesfgB tias b&en approved bjf former general assemblies and thai the site was iked by the general assembly itself. Hie general subject matter Involved in the Waterman resolution has been referred to the military committees of the two houses. Several members of the monument commission have been In the city, Including efc- SenatOf Harlan, who by invitation made a protracted statement of the work of the commission in the past, with some reasons for the actions taken, etc. It is evident that the senator made a good case for. the commission and mollified tbe opposition to a considerable extent. He stated that in connection with the medallions no names Would appear and the commission thought actual faces might as well be used as typical faces. It can be safely predicted that as an outcome of the entire matter but little change will be made in the plan of the monument. So radical a prohibitionist as Mr, Early of Sac hns.introduced a bill to do away with the 66 per cent feature of the mulct law. Mr. Early has introduced another bill requiring that the mulct tax be assessed against permit holding pharmacists Who sell liquors as a beverage. Representative Davis of Cass, another prohibitionist, has a bill pending to take away from druggists holding permits the authority to sell malt liquors. But as yet there is no particular interest manifested in any measure pertaining to the liquor question. Burlington has stolen a march on Des Molnes and has apparently captured the privilege of celebrating Iowa's semi-centen- ial. It Is proposed to hold the celebration in September and a sum of money will be asked from the state treasury. A joint committee has the matter In charge and will prepare a'bill for the celebration and and another for the erection of a memorial h all in Des Moines. Ex-Auditor Brown has presented his claim for his expenses in the Impeachment trial. The amount asked is 8(5,370. The claim has been before several general assemblies and as it requires a two-thirds vote it has always been defeated. The house has passed a bill enabling townships to levy a three mill tax to erect halls in which to hold elections and town meetings. A large number of petitions are being presented in both houses asking that the age of consent be raised to 18 years. The other petitions are generally in reference to woman suffrage^pure food, the regulation of plumbers and the usual standard subjects for petitions. The Phelps anti-cigarette bill, which passed the senate, is resting in the house committee on public health. The state agricultural society is askipg for an appropriation of $10,000 per year to help keep the buildings in repair and to aid the society in a general way. Two hundred and ten bille have been introduced in the senate, while 250 have made their appearance in the house] da Ifaird degree Wofk. Ballsy* ftas ftot put thfougb.

It is thought he will recover, Capt. Saunders of Emmetsburg is thinking of buying a ten-cow milking machine for use on Blalrgowrie. Hiram Wheeler of Odebolt has just bought one and it is said to give excellent sat isfnction. The machine is made by the Cushman Co. of Waterloo, Iowa. The Whittemore Champion makes a suggestion of merit: If we can't have water works how would it do to hire Charlie Winkie to stay here with his Standard water tank? There doesn't seem to be any other use for It here, and we know that its contents will put out fire. Bro. Mayne was over and took in the Masonic banquet. He says! The regular meeting of Prudence lodge, A. P. & A. M. of Algona was held last Thursday evening, at which time one of the mysteries of the order was made plain. During the entire session there seems to have been a feeling that something Unusual was to take place, but no one seemed to know, just where the storm center lay. However, just HS the lodge adjourned, the room was invaded by the ladies of the Eastern Star lodge, who immediately threw open the doors leading to the banqueting hall, ajad lo and behold, a feast fit for the Gods was spread before them. It is needless to say that the brethren were somewhat astonished, but not so much so as to impair their appetites, for they were soon enjoying the repast and did ample justice to it. The men left the ball deeply Impressed with the O. E. S. as an important factor Masonry. in the order of LAFE YOUNG'S LETTER. Within three days of present date the members of the general assembly will be entitled to 'draw $375 each. The law provides that members can draw one-half their pay at the end of the first 80 days and cannot draw the other half until the adjournment. Notwithstanding the funds in the state treasury are understood to be low, it is easy to predict that the warrants drawn will not have to be stamped " Not paid for want of funds," Nor will the warrants be discounted. State warrants are good property and many thousands could be floated at par. , In the »ain the work of the code so f «r Jowft Gallup of the Bopne the veteran? of north worker?, wp elected J, JBrauujgsp of the i, and Athe .Store) Lake Pilot has been half hearted, It is like a maroh performed with a constant disposition to look back and hesitate. While much thought has been given to it and some committee work performed, little real progress has been made. But the code is holding everything else back and pretty soon the members will all see that they are "in for it." It will be the code or nothing. While it has been variously announced in the press that the code has been "knocked out" a number of times, it is still on band and intrudes itself as constant unfinished business., All the members will soon be work ing on it earnestly, The senate has made better progress than the house, A few days ago Senator Blanchav4 introduced a resolution to abandon the present codification and to appoint one person to make a new codification withpwt change or alteration in existing laws.

Pi tjve .belief Without an, * In response to Representative Merriam's resolution asking for a statement from the state treasurer as to the condition of the treasury, State Treasurer Herriott has replied at great length telling all about it. He shows a greater increase of appropriations and expenses than of taxation. He shows also that prqperty valuation has not materially increased. Mr. Herriot agrees with Gov. Jackson in the belief that the whole subject of valuation and taxation is sadly in need of reform. It is easy to infer from the treasurer's report that he thinks there ought to be more taxes or less appropriations, and that if taxes are kept down appropriations and expenses ought to bo correspondingly light. Gov. Jackson thinks the needs of the state imperatively demand a higher rate of taxation for state purposes, and that, as he puts it, it is time for Iowa to take a step forward by improving all her state institutions, LAFB YOUNG.

A Hospital Nurse Hobs a Sick Alan of a Diamond Uliift—The Hospital to be Sued. A year ago two doctors, who were brothers and whose names are not important, went west from an lowu town for their health. At Cheyenne one began to show symptoms of typhoid fever and was dangerously sick when they arrived at a city west of there. He was at once taken to one of the leading hospitals and put in charge of a trained nurse and an assistant. He was wearing a handsome diamond ring, which was so tight on his finger that he had been unable to get it off. After a few days' illness the ring was missing and in his delirium he was complaining of bruises in the abdomen and on his neck, while the ring finger was badly bruised. Two days later he died, it is thought as a result of the bruises. Theremains were brought back to Iowa by the distracted brother and buried, and. then an investigation was instituted. Meantime the nurse had gone to one of the daily papers and had published the story of a diamond ring, in which she pictured a man in delirium snatching a diamond ring off his finger and swallowing it. This created enough suspicion to insure proceedings because a post mortem had revealed that no diamond had been swallowed. Legal proceedings were at once begun, the local feature of the incident being Geo. R. Cloud's connection with it, Our attorney is an intimate friend of the remaining brother and has been engaged for some months in working out the details of this most singular case. There is no doubt that the assistant to the trained nurse held the sick man by the throat with his knee pressing his abdomen while one or both tore off the ring. And there is no doubt that death was hastened if not caused by this brutal outrage, Tbe hospital is one of the wealthiest in the west and is talking now of settling a big claim for damages. If a settlement is not reached the courts will be presented with the evidence in what will become a notable case, Mr, Cloud has local attorneys assisting him in preparing the evidence, but has full charge of the conduct of the matter, THE COUNTY 18 GARNISHED. O, W, McWurray Wants Jt to Wlmt It Owes the Steam Heat Men Until lie Settles WJtJt Tnenj. From week to week Tpjg UPPER PES MOINES has noted that the Thorington was to have steam heat. And from week to week the steam heat has been not forthcoming, In fact the heaters are now at the Northwestern depot waiting until J. H.

This sound estimate of the real power of the press was followed by mi equally Valuable suggestion in the pioneers, " so boost in your patronagu." "Miss Editress,"—Miss Helen Tay* lor, now Mrs. J. E. Stacy, wus the pioneer of Algona journalists—he continues, "1 feel not a little pride at the prospect that already begins to take shape in the dim future for our little out-of-the-way community. ThePressI What don't the press do?" Such was the enthusiastic ushering in of the pioneer journal in all the region west of Charles City and north of Fort Dodge. In the salutatory the ed- itress announces that the Bee will "abound in wit and humor, be graced with sound intellectual studies, have all the news and we hope none of the gossip," all pledges amply fulfilled except perhaps the last, This pioneer number of the Bee was read at the W. A. Moore cabin. It was the intention to have an issue each week, but like many intentions in those days this fell short of fulfillment. How many numbers were ever issued is not known, but there are only 14 now preserved for the year from Jan. 27,1857, to Dec. 27,1858, and only 9 numbers for the period from Deo. 27, 1858, to tbe last One which was read in February, 1861. The writing is still as legible as it was when the pen and ink were first used, and some of the numbers, notably those edited by H. and N. L. Kellogg, are beautiful specimens of artistic penmanship. All of these numbers were read by the editors at the Monday night meetings of the Reading club. The further history of the vicissitudes of this pioneer journal are best told in its own columns. Three of the numbers under Miss Taylor's editorial management are preserved. This was the cheerful period, before the wet summer had dampened the ardor of the pioneers and before the full effects of the panic of 1857 had reached the settlement. The first com plaintcomesin the February, '58, issue Dr. Franklin McCoy editor. He an nounces: "The Bee is published week ly but if times do not improve soon i will be published only semi-occasional ly." But the doctor was courageous an added: " With the steady flow of im migration that now is rolling to th great west and knowing that from th geographical position and agricultura advantages of Algona, to say nothing of its railroad prospects, it must soo be6ome a great and flourishing town we have decided, etc., etc., to conduct: paper of this kind and size in thi place." It was during the doctor's editorship that the youthful journal succeeded ii getting the ladies into its wool,' and this is always a serious newspaper pro dicament. But the doctor succumbec gracefully and this pitfall was safely passed. The Bee had started out with lady editors, but by fair means or other wise, otherwise if the correspondent quoted below was correct, thq men hac monopolized the tripod. Their peaceful possession was not for long, however, and in this February number begins the campaign for women's rights which in one form or another was for so many years a glowing issue in Algona. The fair correspondent writes: "I have for some weeks past felt a de gree of dissatisfaction as to the manner in which our little society is progressing. When I became a member of this little band the laws were to be made by the weaker vessels as I understood, but ere they had come to maturity the bud, as it were was nipped from the stem and taken by the sterner sex. Not alone were they content in officiating in the law making but secretly without the voice or consent of the house they have taken the liberty to edit the paper, I hope the time will come s,oon when those who are so fond of taking the little rights the women have will pu on the hoops. Now, ladies, .how long shall this state of things exist?" Thi vigorous protest had its effect, for the editor endorsed the plan of having i lady and gentleman both elected there after, and so it is with succeeding num bers of the Bee. The next issue of the Bee speaks foi the increasing scarcity. The first item under the head "editorial" is as fol lows: " Wanted—Immediately at tljii office for the use of our family, corn meal, pork, coon, beaver, and monev but especially about 15 cords of wood ' At this stage of its existence again the Bee runs/'against a snag."

Now conies a long jump to Nov, s i 1858, and thfe very opening paragraph' of the re-awakened Bee is about tbe wet summer and the" hard tithes. Atd as a seasonable joke the editors pro- posei "Things as they Used to be and things as they are. We Used to t money like other people, now we arc I like all other editors." Then are enumerated the mourners over the departure of Geo, W. Brizee, founder of Ashuelot, and among them! " The ed- • itbr, who is short just $1,25 and his I wife has to go barefooted in consequence." : This badinage in the Bee about the j depressing days of 1858 was of course all by way of a joke for the, entertainment of the weekly gatherings it was read to, but it presents none the less a real and truthful picture of the timei, The editor was refering to a serious fact when in the Dec. 8, 1858 issue he says: " We have littb local hews of interest to record. * •* . * And now since the hard times have driven off] nearly all of our idlers we are scarcely able to make the most of what little! news we do have." Th.e going of these "idlers," a big part of the population, was celebrated in the poem , The Dear Departed," which as already been published, and was treated as a piece of j good luck, but after all it had a sobering effect on those who remained, for | the Bee very, solemnly urges the unlikelihood of finding any better conditions elsewhere: " We are all well I provided with comfortable 'homes, our [ food is frugal but healthy and a super-1 abundance of it. We luxuriate in a f good debating club for the improvement of our oratorical powers. Our j reading club is for social and mental progress. Our schools are of the first order. Our mail facilities are better j than nine-tenths of our sister <Newf England towns three times our size enjoy. If any are dissatisfied and wish to j leave for some far summer clime, let j them go and joy be with them. But remember, a rolling stone gathers no moss. Let the cold northwesters how], pile the blazing fuel higher. Let the smile of hope illuminate your countenance, it is always the darkest just before day., Stick by! Let's weather the gale. And long years hence you will look back and smile at the sagacity of the writer." Although there was no county printing in those days the Bee had a ''circulation liar" of merit His services on of pur biggest dailies would be highly prized, while to hide his talent on » country weekly would be like putting a candle under a bushel. It had scarcely reached its second volume when its "extreme" circulation .was put at 75,000. Extreme we presume is only another term for our modern "bona fide." At first it was published in no place in particular, at 4 o'clock p. m., Monday, but with.-number eight it has an office "at the Wick up, No. 1, West State street, immediately west of the post- office." With number 11 it was moved and its office is now "at the Dicker exchange, north side of public square." After that it lapses again to the street or nowhere in particular. The numbers of the Bee are filled with items of news, contributions, poems, etc., all of them illustrative of the jondition of this far away pioneer set- .lement, and all of them calculated to entertain and interest. They contain an invaluable record of pioneer history nd are a memorial worthy of most areful preservation. NOW FOB CHINATOWN. LMie Play of the Season at tlje Opera House Tomorrow Night. The announcement of the coming ap- earance of this celebrated comedy ' which occurs Thursday, Feb. 13, will ause a feeling of intense satisfaction mongthe lovers of pure, wholesome comedy, It ranks as the best of Mr. Hoyt's efforts, and has survived the test of time, which in itself Js an endorsement of uncommon merit. Like all of Mr, Hoyt's plays, there is a plot throughout, which causes the many flashes of oome'dy and sciltillations of wit to permeate it in a sequential manner. The music and specialties with which it abounds are not dragged in without rhyme or reason, but belong to the play by rightof incorporation. Mr. Hoyt has cast the play this season with a company of ripe experience, and perfect ability to thereby convey tbe illustration of the, several characters. Foremost in the cast may be mentioned Miss Laura Blggar, whose ripe experience as a star, vocalist, and thorough ' actress, together with a personal charm of form and face, thoroughly fits her for the charming widow, Biggar hus the honor of beipg -the original widow and has never lost her laurels by competition. Her conception of the character is in accordance w}tb Mr, , Hoyt's views which naturally caysee «• perfect performance.
