Representative Mayne enjoyed an not '- honor on his return to Bancroft usually accorded to members of the ' legislature. He was met at the depot r by a deputation of citizens, escorted to , a carriage, carried to Jefferson hall, . where the city had turned out in his honor, and made the hero of an elaborate banquet, with afull accompaniment of after dinner oratory, in which democrats and republicans joined. Thos. < Sherman's rock-ribbed democracy gave i way for the time being, and he presid- . ed as 'toastmaster, calling out Rev. Laidley, Father Schemmel, P. M. Barslou, J. B. Carr, and others. Mr. Mayne responded to Mayor Callanan's welcome vyith a few feeling words of , thanks, and later in the evening talked entertainingly of the work of the session. It was all in all a most enjoyable affair, a pleasant recognition of the . splendid services Mr. Mayne rendered :at Des Moines, and a fitting expression of the feeling of the entire county. frota'Capt. Hull, The captain has tnafly friends over the state who will regret his defeat, but all who knew Mr. Berryhlllin the legislature will recognize that be would add to and not detract /rota the present splendid Iowa delegation. He is a scholar, a man of affairs, an able public speaker^ and po- Besses more than the usual interest in matters affected by legislation. Everybody who has a reform to sug* fest in Iowa will have from now to Jan. 19 next to get it in shape for the legislature. The adoption of the new code will open the whole field of legislation. Senator Funk pays Representative Mayne a handsome compliment: "As an evidence that republics are not always ungrateful, we point with pride to the grand reception given Representative Mayne on his return to Kossuth county. Mr. Mayne made a most excellent record at Des Moines. The best elements of a legislative equipment are industry, conscience and common sense, and the gentleman from Kossuth is not lacking iri any of these essentials." It is pretty definitely rumored- that Hon. W. W. Cornwall of Spencer will be a candidate for Judge Thomas' place on the district bench. Mr. Cornwall is an experienced lawyer, and during the present session of the legislature has been chairman of the judiciary committee. He is amply qualified to honor the office if he should be chosen. Ruse, bad {selecting & la Bart, where he and C, will move Thursday of this Mft and Mrs. 0. will be greatly . Ai a S4 £*?? h ° 8ts of * &m friends frhd will Wish thett success wherever they go. The reason of the move is, as stated a few weeks ago ia these Columns, to be nearer; relatives. Mr, and Mfs!

Wbelan of Esthefvtlle broke the record at this session of the leglsla* lure. • He answered every roll call. He Was the only member not absent once. It is figured that If Iowa and Illinois send silver delegations to the democrat* to meeting in Chicago a silver man will be nominated for president. That means Gov. Boles. The Courier says nothing this week about Gov Boies*candidacy, but we are reliably informed that It will make a fight for a Boies' delegation from Kossuth. It can come close to Carrying the day, and the issue cannot well be avoided. Carroll Herald: As the statesmen return to their homos and resume their places among the common herd they will be reminded anew of the ingratitude of republics, for many of them will never, no never, draw a public salary State Register: The session of the legislature which is drawing to close nas been not a marked one, but still one that on the whole will stand well in the history of the state. In both the senate and the house are a large number of strong men. • _Des Moines Capital: "Judge Lot Thomas of the Buena Vista disrict has been a district judge twelve years and has no opposition for another term." It> ru '.iTtt-i Wallet Wetted, tne W«htegt6in eotte*- pondent of the Chicago times-iBerald, writes of Dolliver'ft latest Apeech. When bolllvet tA Iowa tbakes a speech the house sits back in its 856 chairs and listen* for wit of elocntloft. Some'tlmes It gets both. Ddllivet i« now and then dog- matical—Who is not Witb an election coming on and the country waitlhg to be saved! —but he is never dull. In his Speech on the filled cheese bih Mr. Dolliver was once or twice interrupted by Mr. Brnmm of Pennsylvania, and presently the Iowa man returned the compliment in a Very neat fashion, "Even the expert appraisers iir our custom house at New York," he'said, "are hardly able to tell the difference between a standard sample of woolen cloth and a bogus imitation, gently softened by glycer.'ne and brought up to full weight by adding a solution of raw tin. Only last year, in the state in which tny friend from Pennsylvania resides, a package of oleomargarine took the first prize offered for 'butter* at the Pennsylvania state fair, an award almost worthy of that early governor of Pennsylvania who used to complain of the people of Connecticut because they were selling his people nutmegs made of bass wood instead of the genuine sassafras. When the laughter roused by this happy historical reference had subsided Mr, Dol- llvercontinued. "The country cannot go on living under-a system like that." he said. "It Will not go on forever buying coffee grains delicately moulded out of blue mud. It will not go on buying lea that has been generously commingled with the dried leaves of the forest. It will n ot go on d rin king wine that has been manufactured in a cellar without the intervention of grapes, nor those other and more penetrating beverages that have entered into partnership with such a fatal assortment of explosive chemicals as greatly to facilitate thedescent of our fellow citizens, as the old negro preacher expressed it, down the lubricated steeps to the opaque profundity of damnation." A little later in the same speech Mr. Dolliver was interrupted by Mr. McMillen of Tennessee, who had something to Say about the large amount of money in the treasury. "The logic by which it is shown there is plenty of money in the treasury, that the receipts and expenditures are in accord," said Dolliver, "is the very same logic that could be fairly employed to demonstrate that that the prodigal son was an itinerant capitalist in search of a live stock invest' term bugaboO doesn't influence men; that did well enough lit the time of Hamilton and the federalist^ whCjit $•<•;, fe OPINIONS DIFFER. Secretary Carlisle made a speech in ", ( Chicago last Wednesday evening which was in effect an attack upon the whole - theory of bimetallism. In one place ~ 'he said: «." ? h \. i j ttempt to maintain what is called the double standard of value, that is, the attempt to keep the legal tender coins of ,- the two metals, gold and silver, in use as ••rmoney at the same time, upon a ratio of value fixed by law, has repeatedly been made by kings and parliaments in every civilized country in the world, and it has , failed again and again in every one of them, and it requires no gift of prophecy to foresee that it must continue to fail so long as seU interest constitutes a controlling factor - Jn tne business affairs of men." In 1879 Secretary McCulloch, at least equally as distinguished as a financier 1 and with a much better record as a "sound money "man delivered an address at Harvard university in which after reviewing all of the arguments ,. feoretary Carlisle now brings forth he -' fiaid: "It may be proper for one to say -in conclusion that without having given The Spencer papers have not announced any candidacy. Senator Punk says: " When definitely understood the record of the Twenty- sixth general assembly will be found worthy of approval." • That expresses a growing sentiment in the state. The Ledyard Leader says that gold is the money in which notes must be paid. We do not believe, that, there is a man in Kossuth county who ever paid a note in gold, or who was ever asked to, or who ever had any question raised about the kind of money he brought in. When one such case can be found there will be plenty of lime to discuss the difficulty the poor man has in obtaining gold. is_hardly likely that he will get through without opposition, although he is a very able lawyer and judge. Senator Just as the Courier had satisfied itself that the McKinley boom .was due to an A. P. A. movement in his favor, the A. P. A. came out with a declaration against MoKinley, The current Annals of Iowa contains a valuable and interesting sketch of _. . ,, Funk is all right. Frank Bicknell says in the Marshalltowu Times-Republican: He was at his desk and at work the earliest of any senator, nine mornings out of ten. He certainly did more hard work than any other senator I know of. He gaye his whole time to the work, and he accomplished something for this reason and because he had the bene'it of five years' experience. Des Moines Capital: Senator Funk and the senate committee of ways and means put in much time getting up a good revenue bill and the senate found on account of lack time that the bill must go over without consideration. This is the same fate that has overtaken the revenue bills for the past eighteen years. Senators Larrabee, Huteh- inson and Harsh had " ience that has now Funk. the same exper- come to Senator : to the subject of bimetallic money the careful consideration which it merited JJjad publicly in various ways ex, pressed the opinion that the world had -outgrown the need of silver as money, "-*, * * It is not a pleasant thing for 3 be compelled to acknowledge publicly a change of opinion upon >& -very important question. * * * i 'think that bimetallic money ought to and that it will eventually become (universal money," Secretary McCulloob summed up bis pf the whole matter in one sen- "The certain preventive of in the eoraparatjve value two metals wju be found in the what is known of the career of Julian Dubuque, the first white settler of Iowa. It is written by M. M. Ham, the veteran editor of the Dubuque Herald.

Congressman Dolliver will speak at the American club banquet at Pittsburg on Grant's birthday. IN THIS yEIGHBOBHOOD. Emmetsburg-has been having a little . The Carroll Herald takes an interest in Senator Funk's revenue bill: "Senator Funk gave the revenue question the most conscientious study durine- the session of the legislature and it is said that the bill reported by the committee of -ways and means was a meritorious one; and it is unfortunate that it was not considered and acted upon bv the general assembly." Again it says: "Senator Funk's conscientious and splendid work, as embodied in his bill ought not to be lost to the state We need a new system of revenue for the state and we need changes which shall enable officers to make a more just and equitable taxation of property. Burdens are not equally borne, and that is what Senator Funk's bill aimed at." 'Western Economist: No member of either house was more active and efficient m scouring the passage of the building and loan bill than the gentle- sketch. late to ment, and eating husks 'for his health under the advice of his physician. The exact lope that has been brought in here by my friend from Tennessee to show that the national income needs no addition could be properly used to show that Lazarus, luxuriating among the, rich man's dogs, was in reality engaged in organizing a loan -and trust company and collecting bread crumbs for his personal amusement." "I say," he concluded, "give the American cow a fair chance. She has been the faithful tervant of man. She landed with our ancestors at Plymouth Rock, and, tied behind the old weather-beaten emigrant wagon, she has marched, with the household goods of the pioneers who have taken possession of this continent, from ocean to ocean. She has increased and multiplied and replenished the earth, until today the ludustnes which she has made possible contribute annually to the wealth of the world more money than the great combination of modern capital—more than iron and steel, more than lumber and coal, more than cotton oud wheat, more than all the looms of New England, more than all the mysterious riches of gold and silver. I say, give the American cow a fair chance! For myself L am i? {, avor of ner monopoly—a monopoly that God gave her-in the production of butter and cheese. That is one monopoly that I am in favor of. And if every man in this house who iu the days of his boyhood got up at daylight to feed the cows and stayed up after dark in order to milk them- if every man who has churned actual cream with a reliable upright churn and has watched with a boy's enthusiasm the old- rashioned process of making cheese in the fh a r?,m its hoi '° r , nud repute, will stand by this bill, we will drive from the American barnyard the horde of counterfeiters and cheats at common law and keep them ou till the cows come home."

The facts developed that the sheriff had levied on hogs, two cribs of corn and some machinery. Baker and Keller had sold part of the hogs and taken the remainder and most of the corn to Emmet county. There was enough property left to satisfy the judgment and this was sold, but thereupon Baker's mother came in and claimed ownership and replevmed the property. This left nothing for the judgment and the two were arrested.
