The fle&f approach {JteHmin *r*y conVenlions and the Hot distant fm- tibnal Convention begin to mnke specu- latlbn 68 to republican presidential \ms^ sibllittes of ihtofest. At present Me- liialey IB strongly in the lead and is credited with 800 delegates. Gossip -says he way have within 100 of enough to nominate on the first ballot. Be may have Indiana solid, and it is not certain that he will not have Illinois, Nebraska and other states now credited to local candidates. The Chicago tflmes'Herald thinks he is the inevitable nominee. Others, however, think that all the opposition will defeat him, and in that event Allison is the logical candidate. Gov, Morton of New York is credited with 160 votes at the start, but there is already a local squabble among New York republicans. Quay will have the Pennsylvania delegation, Elklns Is an announced candidate from West Virginia, Davis from Minnesota, Oullom from Illinois, Manderson from Nebraska, Alger from Michigan, Spooner from Wisconsin, and other favorite sons are likely to receive complimentary votes. The friends of Reed, Morton and Allison all claim that their candidate will be the gainer eventually, but the latter with the most reason. If McKinley is not nominated Allison seems to have the best prospects. He is the most acceptable to all the others. He is strong with congress. He has the confidence of President Harrison, which may be an important stem. He •will be especially urged by.theextreine • - western states. He stands for moderate measures and all republicans can meet on a platform drafted to meet his vjiews. Everybody knows that ho has the experience, integrity, ability and strong constitution needed to give the country a safe, honest and creditable administration. Allison is especially strong now because the universal demand is not for brilliancy in the executive office but for business capacity and experience in public affairs. He will] not probably be one of the leaders in the convention on the first ballot, but if McKinley does not sweeep the field at a dash, he will be the leader on the ; final ballot. it is variously Bpbken In "{•<&««&,* "t-oway" ftnd "t-iS-#yV~ s «rlt!i the Sccefll 6fl the firfct syllable, »l-«-#y» and '««i-b-fcayV* with the accent tin the second Syllable, and "Jt-iMfray," with ihfi accent on the third Bj-llable. None of these is cor- feet. St-nntofs Allison- and Geaf and the members of the fowa delegation agree thnt " Lo-wah," with a little accent on iho-first and emphasis oh the fihal syllable is the only fight thing. Everybody hits some pet scheme for the reform of the world. Prince Henry of tiattehbufg, whtt died recently* be- HeVed that the cultivation of music is the essential thing. He always com" pared nations by their taste for music, and said once that the Chinese could never be civilized until their ear for music had boen cultivated. There is more in this theory thnn in many we hear more of here in Iowa. ALGONA, IOWA, NEWS AND OOMMENT. The hill to lengthen the terms of county officials, at least county clerks, to four years should pass. It will not add to the terms of the present incumbents but will go into effect with the coming year. B. P. Grose was before the senate committee with a delegation i which had the indorsement of every judge but three in Iowa for the proposed change. We believe that every lawyer and every tax paper who is acquainted .with the duties of the county clerk will favor a longer term. We be- Jieve also that four-year terms for all officials would lesson the cost of elocutions, and increase the efficiency of the •public service, One of the best departments in Iowa newspaper work is " Words from Busy Women," conducted by Mrs. A, M. Payne in the Nevada Representative. Mrs, Payne is a woman of rare culture and deeply interested in all which has to do with the welfare and happiness of •rt,he human family. Her "words" are always interesting and inspiring. Hon. P, A. Smith is along-time editor of Greene county, and his initials have been irreverently joined together 80 that he passes for Pa Smith with his contemporaries, He was up from Pes Moines for the meeting at Boone .,an,d got even with his brethren in re- .spopding to a toast at the banquet, He Js a genial man and is making one of b§pt members of the present legislature. Weut, Gov, Parrott, we believe, once remarked that newspaper men jjjade the best members anyway, Another Dolliver story comes from •Washington in Wellman's correspond* jt seems that there is enough in the names of several mem- ^. her? to occasion them much embarass- & t joent, especially when speeches are ||,*. credited to them by mistake in the eon" Ifr jrresjjpnal record. After telling of amusing instances Weilman IB the Chicago republican «a'"' litwal epflysntipn of 1888 Mr, LAFE f omm'B LETTEB. The Twenty-sixth general nssembly'finds itself afloat in the middle of the stream with the new code around Its neck, It tnusteither swim or drown, and It ts apparent that It has decided to swim. The fifth week of the general assembly has ended find decided progress has been mnde with the revision. In the senate the committees are actively at work every afternoon and sometimes at night. The senate has passed no part of the code but the house has considered and adopted one chapter consisting of 126 sections in relation to the powers and duties of justices of the peace. This chapter came from Mr. Brinton's committee. Other important sections are just ready to come out of committees, having been carefully compared with the old law, and will soon be ready for adoption. The present general assembly has disappointed all prediction as'to what the lead- Ing questions would be. Before coming here the impression was that principal discussions would be In relation to Insurance, building and loan associations, the manufacture ofliquors in the state and different phases of the liquor question. But these things have all been lost sight of in a general talk about the code and ia the discussion of such questions as changing the age of consent trom 18 to 10 years and the suppression of the manufacture and sale of cigarettes. The discussion in regard to these two questions has been in the eonato. The debate brought out nothing new, excepting that some arguments have been advanced against raising the age of consent beyond 16 years, while a majority of people had supposed no rational argument could be made on that side of the question. The outcome : of the whole matter will probably be that the age will be advanced to 10 years and the prosecuting witness will be required to prove previous good character between the ages of 14 and 10. The Allen fraternal insurance bill having passed the house, has been practically rewritten in the senate committee. A number of radical changes have been made. The house committee on schools has been instructed to report an amendment to existing laws authorizing school districts'to buy books as at present and to loan them to pupils. practically optional free text books. It is not known what the senate will do on this subject. The appropriation committee of thehouse has recommended the expenditure of $-1,000 for portraits of ex-Governors Gear, Sherman, Larrabee, Boies and Jackson, to be placed in the executive department. Representative McArthur has introduced a bill making sleeping car companies liable for the loss of all money, jewels and other valuables belonging to passengers. The bill also requires the companies to keep a safe on each car for the safe deposit of money, jewels, etc,, and shall not be liable for the loss of such articles or property not deposited with them for safe keeping, unless such loss shall occur through the fault or negligence of the company or its employes. The house passed a resolution in favor of the state taking part in the proposed trans- Mississippi exposition to .be held in Omaha in 1898. Later in the session an appropriation wil) be asked, Gov. Drake has signed his first bill, being senate file No. 4, by Punk, to prevent the use of fish houses on< the ice or any other method of shelter or keeping warm while so engaged, The bill also prohibits the use of more than two hooks and lines by one fisherman, ; Mr, Temple of Clark proposes a constitutional amendme.nt giving each county a representative, At present nine counties have two representatives, namely: Polk, Lee, Linn, Clinton, Pottawattamie, Woodbury, Scott, Des Moines and Dubvujue. Seventy- five epunties have pue each. Fifteen counties are represented by seven members. It mine plans for raising mote revenue. graded Inheritance tax will probably be ft feature of the new revenue bill. The wardens of the two penitentiaries re- poi-t that they have more prisoners than they have room for, and plans are under consideration for the enlargement of both prisons, especially the one at Port Madison. This Is a confirmation of Gov. Jackson's Statement that every public institution In the Stat« Stood in need of more room and more and better buildings. In joint convention on Thursday night, 95 members being present, the following officers were elected: N. N. Jones of Cass for warden of the penitentiaries at Fort Madison. P. W, Madden of Clay for Warden of the penitentiary at Anamosa. Lafayette Young of Polk for state binder, F. R. Conaway of Poweshiek for state printer. Trustees for various state institutions Were elected: Agricultural college, Ames—\V. O. McElroy, Sixth district, six years; L. B. Robinson, Ninth district, six years; Joslah H.

Sullivan of Algona was in Emmetsburg Friday taking depositions in the case of West vs. Lund, now pending in the district court of Kossuth county. J. Thatcher tells the West Bend Ad- vance'that in 1895 he milked 31 cows and delivered to the creamery 165,701 pounds of mill:, which brought him in cold cash $1,163.47 or $37.53 per cow for the year. A. W. McFarland of West Bend has invented an egg separator that is promised a big sale. If It will separate an egg that was laid last summer from a later product, it ought to bo put in everywhere. The Emmetsburg Tribune wants a normal school. It says: Our location is just as good and perhaps a trifle better than Algona, being in direct touch with the lake region of Iowa. The state only asks a bonus of $25,000. Swea City has aS^SOOBaptistchurch and five miles south is a Presbyterian church, both omitted from the list given two weeks ago, because the census did not show them. Swea City also has a Methodist society and pastor, but no church. The .Presbyterians at West Bend' have bought a clock and set it in the church, where the preacher can see it, The edge is taken off by announcing that it is to remind the congregation that they are late when they come straggling in. The'Burt Monitor snys of the music at the big A. O. U. W. banquet: A selection by the Algona orchestra, composed of Miss Kate Smith and her sister, Charles and D.

Fort Dodge out-censused Waterloo the last time and there has been blood on the moon ever since, Emmetsburg Tribune; The shoe factory bait that had been fixed up for Algona speculators to bite at did not succeed in getting any suckers over there, The name of the institution was the Union Shoe company of Chillicothe, Ohio, The company has become insolvent with liabilities of $100,000 and assets that amount to $50,000, Referring to Germania's distinguished citizen, Ed. Gallagher, Bailey says; The present legislature should pass a Itiw allowing counties to bore a H-jnob, the ground SOfeetdeep, and drive, such fellows in head first with a five-ton pile driver.

It was the last meeting between the Sioux and Sao and Pox nations, the two greatest amortg the wusl^ ortt Indians, it occurred in April, 1852, between two straggling bands, both at that date without legal right to be on towa soil, and never again, so far as is known, did they come together. Thus a century's feud, which at one time involved all Iowa andengared the repeated attention of the govern- meni.a't Washington, flickered out in a malicious slaughter on the banks of the Des Moines. On this account it assumes a dramatic interest, out of all proportion to its details. On other accounts it is of interest to us because of historical associations it recalls. The glory of the Sacs and Foxes had departed long before 1852. Treaty by treaty the confederated tribes which followed Blackhawk when he "touched the goosequill" at the close of the war of 1812 had ceded their Iowa possessions and in 1845 they had become a band ol pensioners upon the government on Kansas reservation. Blackhawk, the greatest of them all, had died disappointed and deserted in his Iowa home in 1838. Keokuk, eloquent, vain, venal, and dissipated, had reached the new western home with the remnants of his people, and there in a drunken debauch had ended his career ten years later. A few malcontents, broken hearted and homesick had wandered back to their old hunting grounds on the Iowa river near Tama. Here they gradually collected a band, which by act of legislature was allowed later to make a permanent home; and taking the Indian name of the Foxes, Musquakie, signifying weaver of the yellow emblem, they and their descendants still linger to remind the traveler on the Northwestern railroad of the Iowa of a generation ago. The Sioux, occupying only the northern and western border of Iowa, were slower to retreat before the advancing immigration of the whites, but already during the year previous to this battle had yielded their claim by treaty to Iowa territory. Being but the boundary line, the great Dakota nation, as they called themselves, had never held Iowa at any time other than debatable battle and hunting ground. For some years therefore the region of Spirit Lake and of the two branches of the Des Moines river, the Sioux frontier, had been held by wandering and vagabond Sioux tribes, Si-mon-na-do-tah and Ink-pa-du-tah leading their ill- visaged freebooters up the west branch and about the lakes, andUm-pa-sho-tah occasionally coming down the east branch with his band from the Minnesota lakes, The Indians rarely crossed the prairies, preferring to range along the wooded valleys, and it was undoubtedly a band of the Minnesota Sioux which, on that beautiful April morning in 1852, were looking out upon a beautiful and peaceful landscape, preparing for the chase, unconscious that they were watched from the heavy grove to the north by their hereditary enemies, bent on avenging for 1 the last time insults and injuries treasured in tenacious Indian memories. The spot upon which they met was not far from the "neutral line," associated in both tribes with repeated hostilities, and near the western limit of the "neutral ground," These two landmarks of early Iowa geography mark two ingenious efforts on the part of the government to secure peace between these hostile peoples. The Dakotas were a native nation. The Sacs and Foxes were warlike Algonquin tribes driven from the St. Lawrence river gradually westward until at Prairie du Chien on the north and Keokuk on the south they occupied at the opening of this century the Mississippi valley, The lowas, Pottawata- mtea and other western tribes gave way before them, but their infringing upon Sioux territory to the north was like the grinding contact of two mighty glaciers, As soon as white settlement reached theMlssisippi western progress depended upon the establishment of some boundary line both nations 1 would respect. Accordingly in 1825, in August, a great gathering of 8,000 painted warriors, Sioux, Winnebagos, Menom- rines, Pottawatamies, lowas and Sacs and Foxes was held at Prairie du Chien, and the "neutral line" was established. It ran from the mouth of the Upper Iowa river on the Mississippi north west to near the present boundary between Iowa and Minnesota and then directly southwest to the forks of the Des Moinea in Humboldt county, and these southwest to the Missouri. The adjournment of the convention had not occurred before the futility of the division appeared, Keokuk, the last to arrive, came with his followers in full war array, singing their martial^ongs, and casting looks of enduring hatred upon the Sioux chieftans even while they were entering intp the agreement. Five years later the''neutral ground" was established, the Sioux ceding a 20- ml|e strip north of the neutral Jine from the Mississippi to the west branch of the Des Moines, and the Sacs and Foxes a. like strip south of the line, making a belt 40 miles wide to be use( bored with sticks, but, my father you could not penetrate thHf thick skulls n that way; .it would require hot iron. They say they would as soon make peace with a child as with us. They Know better, for when they made war upon us they found us (Men. They tell you that peace has often been made and that we have broken H. How happens it then that so many i>f their braves have been slain in nui 1 country i" I will tell you they hiive invaded us; we never invaded them; none} of my braves have been killed in their land. Five years later, in 1841, while 1,600 Sacs and Foxes were holding a war dance on what is now inclosed in the townsite of Des Moines, Sldomondota's Sioux warriors attacked a band of friendly Delewares at Adel, killing 26, and Keokuk, the aged Pashepaho, and Kiskekosh led a band of 500 Sacs and Foxes in pursuit, claiming on their return to have killed 300 Sioux. As a barrier the neutral ground was little If any better than the neutral line. But as a hunting ground it has never been and never will be surpassed. It was the garden spot for sport, Buffalo, elk and deer ranged the prairies, beaver, otter and mink abounded in the streams, wild fowl of every variety from the pelican and swan to the modest teal hovered over the ponds and lakes. Plover, pigeon, quail and chickens hid in the luxuriant grass, and fish, still abundant enough to attract the disciples of Walton, then actually infested the water. No. equal territory ever vied with northern Iowa in its virgin condition as the home of game, and of the neutral ground no part was fairer than the east DHS Moines valley, lying as it did in acircle of large lakes from Clear lake on the east through Chain lakes on the north to Spirit lake and Okobojt on the west. And lying as It did at the western extremity of the ueutral ground, the valley was last to be depleted of its gttme because when in 1841 the Winnebagos were moved from Wisconsin and given the ground for a reservation, their proximity to the Sioux on the west kept them from coming beyond Clear lake and was equally effective in restraining Sioux from "venturing often east of Spirit and Okoboji lakes. Thus it happened that as late as the spring of 1852 two remote tribes should have come into close proximity in their search for game. The history of the battle iscontained in the story of a trapper and was reduced to writing in ]860 in a letter which was written by Amos J. Collins to A. L. Seeley and which, yellow and worn, is still preserved. The Sioux were encamped upon a bluff which rose abruptly in a short bend of the .river, its wooded sidesfrontinge,astand north. On the south it was cutoff by a deep ravine, while, by a few feet at least, it rose to the west above the level of the the far stretching prairies. It was and is a sightly spot, and from its summit the wary and keen sighted Indians could note a suspicious.movemantmany miles away. To the northeast along the creek now known as Buffalo Fork to the grove in Winnebago county now known as Buffalo grove, stretched the favorite stamping ground of the big herds of buffalo, Across the river a mile to the north a heavy growth of native timber sheltered the attacking Sacs and Foxes. They had come 60 strong from Tarna under Kokowah for the buffalo, but learning at Clear lake of the presence of their life-long enemies, had donned their war paint and cautiously approached from the east until they lay hidden awaiting the fateful moment. Among their band were Petokape, an aged chieftan of re- known, and Kear Kurk, a younger but distinguished warrior. Morning found the Sioux setting out upon the hunt ind the Musquakies stealthly approaching under cover of the underbrush of the river valley. Thirty years have added to the density of the timber which fringes the banks and steep sides of the bluff, but even then and in the early spring it was possible to reach the summit, unnoticed if unsus- aected, The first fire, had firearms Deen effective in those days, would bave ended the conflict, but the mutilated and scattered skeletons of the Sioux told of a desperate struggle to the hunter who found them in 1856 glistening in the sun,' The 16 who were killed lay along the hillside as they fell, forced gradually back and down. At the foot of the bluff lay the medicineman, his bangles and rude ornaments still clinging to his fleshless bones. Four Sacs and Foxes fell. In the first rush Petokape was shot in the breast by a Sioux squaw, and as he turned to run was killed by an arrow at 20 rods. The four were buried in one grave on the summit of the battle ground, and there in 1860 their skeletons were found, wrapped in a buffalo robe, with their several weapons, one a pistol of ancient make whose rude construction proved a puzzle to the writer's youthful mind in the solution of which he sucoeeaed in destroying an interesting and valuable relic of early times, . The rude burial over the Musquakies retreated in haste to Tama, traveling day and night, There they spent six days and nights in fortifying their town, when they burned their prisoner, made to do service in encouraging the and enthusiasm of the occasion^ They never again ventured nei- Sioux territory. The Sioux lingered in atab" by both tribes for hunting and fishing unmolested. But even this --" ' Her proved ineffectual, for .,..„ .„„ years later the leaders pf both nations were called to Washington and there before the "great father" explained their mutual grievances and displayed the r mutual hatred, i( My father," —1.1-..^ — "'-v'you cannot make d words w '« ' *%T"""" ** «3•'*''•* J*fXTf*V -V^B-H^ MVJltl M. w^* Wl» wed, - a boy of 14 years, and scattered in small parties to prevent the Sioux getting revenge.
