v • /• ~ DESJtOlNES: AMOKA. IOWA. WEDNESDAY. APRIL 8,1896. i (Mfre&t Atlantic Meafhlj „ «s»se* Senator AUiwniS a presidential candidate. After a fair review of his cateer it sflbHvp its praise: "Sei«a sale toan, an eminently - Atetesman whose election to tbe dency would mean that tie weight of hit office would always be on the ride of * dean, honest administration.*' And again: "In all Ibis account there . is evidenced* sound-beaded man, of integrity of character, of high principles and possessed of wide experience," But the Atlantic does not i-eaily favor Senator Allison" 1 ! nomination, because "he is not a leader." It say* bis moderation of opinion has "prevented him • from ever becoming a great champion of a great cause," and It concludes " perhaps daring the next few years, •when the country will be readjusting her position among the nations, a man of this calibre may be the beet man to have at tbe head of affaire; but a pilot in smooth waters is one thing, a captain is quite another." Tbe merit of this summing up depends entirely upon tbe definition of leadership. Senator Allison has not been a leader in the sense of originating new policies nor of startling the country by his championship of them. But in the sense of being a moulder of legislation, of actually shaping results, he has been a leader of unsurpassed ability in congress. There are two Muds of leadership. One is spectacular such as President Cleveland's leadership of his party. It makes an inspiring show, but where are the fruits of it? It is like a brilliant cavalry dash in war. The other kind of leadership is that which quieMy brings opposing interests into harmony, conciliates factions, devises compromises, organizes a great coherent -working force out of representatives of different sections with widely divergent interests, and which -without any display, and without any startling announcement of policies, quietly but effectively works into legislation the average good judgment of the country. This leadership is tbe leadership of a great general who plans Ms campaign in his tent, very often a campaign of waiting, but a campaign which in tbe end reaches tbe goal with the least loss of life. Senator Allison has never in his 35 years of public life made himself conspicuous nor aimed at cheap effects either at home nor in congress. But in that 35 years be has exerted a powerful influence in shaping legislation, and today the men most willing to trust him in the presidential chair are tbe men who -have served with him in congress, and who know best tbe effectiveness of his quiet and conciliatory methods. The Atlantic puts all the emphasis on the importance of a captain, while merely admitting the value of a pilot. President Cleveland has fully illustrated what may result from tbe application of this idea. He bas assumed a high seat, has courageously insisted upon having hie ideas prevail, and bas issued bis commands in a loud tone of voice. - In consequence a political party ushered into power by an overwhelming majority goes to total wreck. There is no reason why a little tact, a little of tbe piloting tbe Atlantic speaks about, should not have secured « lor tbe democracy a measure of success. The republican party has within itself : interests as divergent as the democratic. Any political party that is national must have them in the fierce struggle of class with class and of section with section that is inevitable in this commercial age. Tbe republican party can be wholly blocked in the coming congress and in many succeed* ing ones by unwise or dictatorial or one-idead captaincy of the Cleveland variety, Tbe Atlantic bas its empba* , sis misplaced. The country occasion-' ally needs a captain to command, it must always baye a pilot with clear vision, a firm band, and an acquaintance wit}i tbe, waters be is navigating, ^te direct its course. Jfc is not only -"possible," as tbe Atlantic suggests, , ttet a man )ike Alljion may be the head of affairs yea_rs, but it is ex- probable. It is In fact so probable that among the many able ^4 distinguished men who are today ;heing ardently supported there is not .,pn$ wjjpge e»ccejs, gives as great prom- Jse<tf a, successful administration, nor would give as fle hm brratKS*, dow- his cxHtxnittee work £a!tfaftt%, sad grown usefulness. fb« State Setter Reporter f*j* him * deserved ooffiptltse&t: « *be fttqpteef Sbtwuth wnttty coaW s»«t, fc*atfeejr*ailiiwi dbftfeoek, bra Majfte.ifc« geni in the b<rete lathe present ggBEfl'al _ „ My.

Mayoe lias »n»- •prered neariy li mat every wM call during thetrhitei-.&naaerotedhls whole time to theupbttUaiagol'iaietoBrt iatere«t8 of 1*e people of Iowa. A member who speaks only on rare occasions, Mr. May&e never fails to command the close attention of the boose. A member of seven of the leading committees of the bouse, Mr. Mayne has devoted a great deal of Ms time to committee work the past winter, g-hring every bill submitted close attention, and permitting Dotting to escape «ernHny. The people of Kossntib county having once secured sucb a representative, should continue to accord Dim political preference, and of they do, tils present loyaJ representative in the bouse will be beard from in tbe arena of clean politics in the year* to come." LATE TOTnSTG'B LETTEE. Both bouses bare agreed to adjourn at noon, April 11, wMcn will be nextSatnrday. IMs is exactly tbe prediction made last week. There is nothing in the adjournment resolution about a special session. That matter must be determined by the governor. It has been evident for the past two weeks tlxat the code would not be and could not be completed at the present session. If it is ever made it must be at a session called for that purpose. There is no use in postponing it for the next legislature, as that body would find itself in exactly the condition of the present assembly. When the Twenty-sixth general assembly adjourns on Saturday it will have been in session just ninety days. 'The pay of members, therefore, will average tG.ll per day, and tiiat will fix tbe salary for the extra session held next winter. Members are filled with tbe home feeling and will soon be with their families and friends engaged in their ordinary pursuits. The members have done the state no harm, and possibly some good may come out of their work. Tbe senate defeated the bill -which permitted the manufacture of liquors in the state in localities where the sale is permitted. Fourteen republicans voted for the measure and twenty-seven republicans voted against it. The bouse adopted tbe constitutional amendment changing the ratio of representation so that each county will have one member and counties having three-fifths of the ratio fixed by the legislature after each state census shall have two. On this plan there would be an increase of nine members in tbe bouse. Inasmuch as this amendment will have to pass both branches of the legislature twice and then be voted on by tbe people, it is evident that there will be no increase in the membership of the house for a number of years. Senator Funk's Spirit Lake dam bill has now passed both houses and when signed will be a law. * • Van Houten's pure food bill passed the house after having been adversely reported by the committee. Mr. Van Houten made a strong speech in its favor. Tbe bill provides that persons selling or manufacturing adulterated food or drugs shall be fined $20 to $100 for tbe first offence and $100 to $500 for the second and each subsequent offense. Tbe definitions of adulteration under the act are specific and comprehensive and include "nearly everything that could be reached. The Soldiers' home pension bill passed the senate. It gives pensions of soldiers in tbe home in excess of $fl per month to needy relatives, and where there are none the money is to be retained as a trust fund, to be .returned, to the soldier or his heirs after his discharge from the home. The valued policy insurance bill and Spaulding'sjbill in relation'to the rights of strikers were both defeated in the house. Senator Kilburn, belner anxious for a straight vote on his Joint resolution to amend the constitution permitting women to vote, called it up and the final vote resulted 23 for to 88 against. Lacking the constitutional majority, 86, it failed to pass. tad *be never even £b« leUertu There *e*fia* to be ptenty of tnonty In tbe *or3dlor.«*B* fteoffle. Alter ail the faH tifcfeiwiBi problem is fcow to fit «ar- tasltes to furnish something the world waatB or tfaiekelt wants. The collateral is the thing. Tbe liquor maSufaolure bill wa« beaten last Thursday «• it deserved to be. The tiedyird Leader saya THE UPPER DssMocsfesij"evasive" and "deceptive" la saying that silver is a Ml le- Cal tender, and then adds that it is a legal tender for only $S. The Leader is mistaken. Silver is a Ml legal tender for any amount Silver pays anything and everything where a man does not specifically contract to pay some* thing else, in which case he ought to pay what he agrees to. Attorney General Eemley holds that tbe anti-cigarette bill is constitutional. Gov. Boies is out as a candidate for delepate-at-large to tbe national democratic convention on a free silver coinage platform. That insures the liveliest political contest ever seen in the state. Will Kossuth Bend a gold standard administration delegation again, or will the silver men stand by Gov. Boies? The Courier correspondent, "Farmer," still bas the idea that Congressman Dolliver has somewhere endorsed President Cleveland's proposal to retire tbe greenbacks. As a matter of fact no republican of prominence bas done so. In the current Forum "Farmer" can find an able review of this whole matter by Senator John Sherman. Senator Sherman has been roundly denounced from time to time as a " gold bug," and a defense of our present silver and greenback currency from him ought to be refreshing reading. No abler statement of the republican program has been made, and tbe Forum can be had at tbe postoffice. An extra session of the legislature is not desirable, but Senator Funk is correct in saying: "It will be a great deal easier to defend an extra session than it will to explain how a great many bad things got into the code if it is railroaded through." There seems to be some foundation to tbe claim that some of the political leaders are in favor of anything to beat McKinley. There is no such sentiment among the republicans of Iowa. If Allison cannot win, McKinley is the undoubted choice of the state. NEWS QOMMENT, FOLITIOAL NOTES. McKinley was a free silver coinage advocate in 1878. It is said that A. L. Hager will be re- nominated for congress in the Ninth or that Speaker Byers will succeed him. E. P. Heizer is taking care of Congressman Perkins' interests over west Isaac Struble is a candidate again, but Perkins will win. It is reported that Congressmen Clark, Curtis, Henderson, Lacy, Hepburn, Cousins, and Dolliver will be nominated by acclamation. The democratic state convention to choose delegates and alternates to the democratic national convention has been called to meet in the city of Dubuque, May 30. Senator Healey was not able to be in Des Moines when the vote on manufacturing liquor was taken. But he wrote down to say that he should vote against the bill if he were there, Lafe Young: We do not believe that the republicans of Iowa in their desire to secure the nomination of Allison are willing to enter into any conspiracy simply to defeat MoKinley. Four hundred and forty delegates to the national convention have been chosen. Of these McKinley claims 235, Reed 58, Morton 54 Allison 84, Quay 85. and unknown 84. McKinley has over half thus far. Congressman Hull allowed himself to be identified with the Des Moines mayorality fight, and now he wishes that he hadn't. His chance for renomination is slim, Jas G. BerryhiU will doubtless carry Polk county and may be nominated. Senator Funk said in his speech on adjournment in the senate: I have come to the conclusion after the hardest winter's work I have ever done that the wisest plan is to postpone this work. I have no fear of my constituents. My conscience is clear. I have no fear of newspapers who are attempting to influence this legislature. I am a newspaper man myself. I am willing to take my chances with my people. I believe it is m the interest of the people of Iowa, ' * foe Regtefe* says the !* *ell but very *eafe- Emmetebnrg is getting ready fot A Fourth of July celebration already.

Manna are building their store room 120 feet long at La Verne. That is a metropolitan length. A big cold storage building full of ice and beer at Emtneteburg was Mown over a week ago, tbe loss about $1,900. Tbe foundation gave out. The West Bend Journal asks a question that ia pertinent, in Algona: *' Where tbe d—— is our side walk com- mlttee?'' It adds that there is not a half block of side walk in town without from one to a dozen boles. Cbas. Stover, a class mate at Iowa City of Mies Jessamine L. Jones and J. L. Bonar, bas been elected principal of tbe Estherville schools. He was in Algona last week visiting the schools in the interests of tbe state university. G. 8. Foster of Algona is going soon to survey tbe new town of Ottosen in Humboldt. This is the old "Russell Switch" up on tbe southwest boundary of KosButh, and is said to be already well on tbe way towards a boom town. West Bend Journal: We learn from THE UPPER DES Momss that a mulct law petition is being or will be circulated in Kossuth county soon. Should the promoters succeed in getting tbe required sixty-five per cent, of signatures we do not believe there is a town in the south half of tbe county where an ordinance could be passed allowing a legalized saloon. All who expect to go to Fort Dodge next Wednesday to try the examination for the cadetship at Annapolis should take a certificate of physical condition from a local physician. Candidates should understand before going to tbe expense of making a trip to Fort Dodge that tbe medical examination at Annapolis is very severe. It is useless to win in the competition only to be rejected at Annapolis. Forest City Summit: It seems Forest City bad a European hotel nearly forty years ago. Tbe Algona UPPER DBS MOINES had an interesting "Chapter of Early-day History" last week, taken from tbe pioneer journals of northern Iowa, and this reference to the Forest City hostelry, John Mabin proprietor, was found in the Algona Bee of Jan. 15, 1859. The house stood on the corner now occupied by the residence of John Neil and was destroyed by fire early in the 60'a. Burt Monitor: About all the papers of tbe county have said "it is rumored" that a petition is to be circulated for signatures to permit saloons in this county. Now it is most likely that there is nothing in this "rumor." H ever, if such a petition ever comes around we hope the Monitor readers, one and all, will refuse to sign. In order to get saloons, tbe petition must be signed by 65 per cent, of the voters. We hope tbe requisite number will not be found. Kossulh county is doing well without tbe saloons which is the home of everything that is evil and corrupt. woiat of fttgotft THIS BENNETT MITCHELL'S NEPHEW. J. M. Chappie of Ashland, Wie., la Coming to tbe Front as a Literary Light. In a late issue of the Chicago Times- Herald J. A. Watrous tells about the career of J. M. Chappie. Mr. Chappie is a nephew of Rev. Bennett Mitchell, and consequently a cousin of David Mitchell of Algona. His father was on the road formerly and was occasionally seen in Algona. Watrous describes his rise as a newspaper man in Wisconsin. He has published one novel which has had quite a run, and has lately been east arranging for the publication of a second. Watronssays: "Mr. Chappie is a genius. He has an idea that there is a demand in the west for a better magazine than has yet been published, and I believe he will not abandon that idea until he has tried the experiment. Besides being a successful publisher, a bright editor, and a writer of books, he is a very attractive public speaker. I am sure much more will be heard from and about this young man, not yet 30years old." On his way east Mr. Chappie stopped at Washington. Here is his description of the attendance of the president's family at church: "Along waddled our president, Grover Cleveland—not a spark of expression in his cold eyes—which I thought before gray were Tbe Iowa Falls Sentinel is forty years old, It is older than apy paper published north or west of Hardin oovmly.
