They propose to clean out a lot of dogs that seem to have no particular business in town, C. L. LuRd has the foundation in for a tenant's house on the quarter south of the road, across from the home place. He will build two such houses. A big party of Odd Fellows went to Burt last Friday evening to witness work in the Robecca lodge. Burt leads the county in lady Odd Fellows. Work has begun on Dougal Wallace's fine new home on bis farm east of C. L. Lund's. , It will be a handsome addition to that part of our suburbs. School election comes next Monday. There are two directors to be chosen. Geo. E. Clarke and W. B. Quarton are the members whose terms expire. The farmers' institute comes next week Thursday and Friday, The day meetings will be in Clarke's hall, the evening meeting at the court house. J. M, Farley has withdrawn from the state bank at Whlttemore, Geo. E Boyle taking his interest. Mr. Farley goes into the new German American bank.

World cotHeS that Howard 'Robinson and Miss Lizzie Wallace were recently fnafried in Minneapolis ahd will go to Denver, where he has secured a desirable situation. Both have many friends in Algona, who will congratulate them and who will regret that they will not come here to live. Mi*. Whittaker, manager of the Ames opera bouse, telegraphed to Manager Blossom Monday that the John Dillon compnhy played to the largest audience in their opera house, and gave the best satisfaction of any company ever there. The press comment every where he has been is flattering to him. Jas. G. Green, the Irvitigton pioneer, has bought the lot west of S. Benjamin's house and already has a barn erected and the foundation in for a new house. It is to be 26x26, cottage style and Mr. Cratnmond wil 1 soon have it up. Mrs. Green has spent most of the winter in Algona with her daughter and in the spring Mi*. Green will come also and make his home in town, Representative May no voted against the woman suffrage bill. He must have been in Algona at the famous library election. The women voted at Webster City Monday on a public library. Only 205 registered and not half of them voted. At Waterloo 845 voted. Woman suffrage in legislation may be a good thing sometime, but at present it is only a subject for debate. A recent letter from A. H. Langdon to Cheover Hudson shows him very busy. He has solo charge of the building of 27 miles of railway with three resident engineers under him. The job includes a lot of bridge and dock work and will keep him hard at work all summer. He says they are putting in a slip to accommodate the largest car ferry In the world. He is at Manl- towoc at work for the Wisconsin Central. Hobart has several claims to distinction this spring. , One of them is the reputation of turning out the best butter that is being made hereabouts. By some mishap the last shipment was run into the river at New York and spoiled, but the commission merchants forwarded the money just the same, saying that they would collect from the railway company. This would not happen if the butter was not very desirable to the commission men. Manager Blossom expects to have Thomas Keene in Algona, April 13, to play Richard III. The contract is not closed but undoubtedly will be. Keene has a reputation in this great Shakes- perian character second to no American actor, and his coming will fitly close what has been a season of high class attractions at the opera house. No one who enjoys good acting and the tragedies of Shakespere can afford to miss Keene, if the date ,is finally announced. ' MR, DOtLlVBR ON SILVER. He Gave the F*ee Coinage Men Some Hafd finis to Crack iti cent Speech. a fte- Lucid Presentation of thft 'Question SO Vexatious Among the Politicians and the People. Bishop Fowler will deliver his great lecture on Abraham Lincoln in Music hall at Emmetsburg under the auspices of the Young People's union, on Monday evening March 9. The Minneapolis Tribune pronounced this the greatest intellectual treat ever given in that city. All who have heard the lecture are loud in its praise. Admission 50 cents. Those who expect to go from this city can get their seats reserved by writing to the secretary of the Y P. U., Rev. Robt. Bagnell. 'Squii>e Clarke had a big strapping peddler, by name Wm. Newton, up last week for being drunk and sentenced him to jail. Sheriff Samson got him over to the jail steps, but there he decided he could "lick" the sheriff and turned on him. Night Watch Hunter and W. J, Brunson came along and Newton was soon deposited behind the bars. At this point he drew a razor and began slashing about, fortunately not hitting the bars with it. An ordinary case knife is.all they were intended for. , . The marriage of George Coffen and Miss Anna Hunt in Burt was the social event of last week. George is one of the county's popular young men, son of Clark Coffen, a Plum Creek pioneer, Miss Hunt grew up in Algona, where she is universally esteemed. Friends and relatives gathered to congratulate them, and if the noise of cannon heard nearly to Algona had a part,in the festivities, all Burt must have been celebrating the event. THE UPPER DES MOINES joins in wishing them all joy and happiness, A meeting was held at the court house last Thursday evening and was largely attended by the business men of the town to consider normal school matters. The opinion was unanimous that a bond should be prepared and be signed ready for filing, A committee consisting of Geo, E. Clarke, E. V, Swotting, and W, C, Danson was appointed to draft a bond, A further committee was appointed consisting of Ambrose A. Call, C. C. Chubb, C. L. . V£MI V, V. WUUO0, U, it. T -ntr- „.• Wadsworth, Geo. 0. Call, J. W. Hinobon, and Harvey Ingham to secure the necessary signatures. The committee will meet and act as soon as the normal school bill passes either house at Des MoineB. NEW lot of choice crockery at Grove & Son's, i 10 for Grove & Son, On Wednesday, Feb. 12, Horn J. P. Dolliver made a speech in congress in opposition to free coinage of silver. It would fill ten columns of TttE UPPER DES MdiNES, which will account for its not appearing in full. It is an able presentation of the best argument against this country venturing by itself upon any experiments. It is also interesting to M#. Dolliver's constituents as an Illustration of his growing ability as a debater. He was interrupted almost continually by the free coinage men. A few paragraphs from the official record will show how happy he was in repartee. At one point Mr. Terry of Arkansas interrupted him: Mr. Terry. Will the gentleman allow me to ask him a question? Mr. Dolliver. With pleasure. Mr. Terry. Are you in favor of the coinage of silver dollars at alii 1 Mr. Dolliver. I stand with a political party that in eighteen years has minted 600,000,000 silver dollars, 75 times as many as the mint produced from its foundation up to 1873, and has kept every one of them in circulation, by itself or by its paper representative, and ha§ maintained eyeryohe of them equivalent in value to the dollar of gold. [Loud applause on the republican side.] Mr. Terry, That is all very fine, but answer the question. Are you in favor of the coinage of silver dollars, and if so at what ratio? Mr. Dolliver. I am in favor of the coinage of the silver dollar under such provisions and with such limitations and conditions as will produce a coin agreeing in value with existing standards, and I would have the United States join with the commercial nations in such an adjustment of the ratio, under international agreements, as will enable the entire commercial world without loss to any nation to return to the unlimited coinage of silver. Mr. Terry. Oh, that is mere jack-o'- lantern statement. Are you one of those parties who say that I am in favor of the coinage of the silver dollar if you will only put enough silver in it to make it equal in value to the gold dollar? Do you belong to the class that fa'vors that kind of silver coinage? Mr. Dolliver. I do not like to be described by my friend from Arkansas as a jack-o'-lantern philosopher, but I do not mind telling him that I have a very strong prejudice, for reasons which I have tried to explain at length, in favor of having all the dollars in use in the United States equivalent to each other in value. So far as the gentleman is concerned, the controversy is not between gold and silver. It is between the existing standards of value and a standard contrived out of compressed air. [Laughter and applause.] I need not say to this house that I am with the republican party in favor of the largest possible use-of silver that can be had without degrading the existing standards of value and turning loose a depreciated and fluctuating coin upon the American people. [Applause.] That is the position I take. There are people who say that the whole history of the republican party has been one uninterrupted conspiracy against the American people. I heard my friend from Nebraska [Mr. Kem] who a few minutes ago disclaimed a very sensible discourse upon the money question as having been delivered, not by him, but by somebody else—[Laughter,] I heard him say in starting out the other day, that this conspiracy against the people began in 1862 when the greenback was manipulated in the interest of Wall street. He then passed on to the time when the national banks were created, then to the time when the payment of the public debt was guaranteed in coin, then to the time when the obsolete silver dollar was dropped from the list of coins, Mr. Kem. Will the gentleman mit a question? Mr. Dolliver, Yes, sir, Mr. Kern. Do you undertake to say that the greenback was not manipulated in the interest of the bankers? Mr, Dolliver. I will answer your question and I will so display the matter that you can understand it, and that you? children can understand it, There is not an act of congress of which our per- you have complained as a, part of the conspiracy, from the law creating the Economy is Gain, OR "A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned."

[Laughter and applause.] My fellow-countrymen, let us rise above that level of thought and speech which thrives by false witness against the motives of public men, which teaches the young men and young wor men of the land that public iffe is without conscience and rectitude of purpose and that the government for a genera* tuwhas been turned from its benefl' cient office to become the despicable servant of the rich.
