HI- r M.> " —'' He Was nominated again at Em> - metsburg afterwards and no criticism '' *was passed upon that vote, nor was any --' protest made during the canvass, nor '—• -'Was any expression of sentiment voiced • - "by the district. When the matter l*.~came up at the late session he voted .,„ consistently, although THE UPPER DES ; MOINES knows that he hoped to see the *- whole matter of liquor legislation . dropped. Any thing like personal crlti- , - cism at this time by papers which'have - for two years kept silent is evidently /. an exhibition of personal ill will. THE ' UPPER DES MOINES differed from Sen- 'f. ,ator Funk as to the wisdom of themeas- (,- ure but has always recognized that he ..-—was acting fairly by the district in vot- - ing as he did. If the district was op— posed to the bill, which is not at all «i .certain, it neglected the proper oppor- - tunlty of expressing itself, after having • ,- full notice of his views and purposes. In the current Beacon Senator Funk - reviews the matter, his first vote for «.-„ manufacture, cast, he says, " with misgivings," and says: "By no constituent was this senator, < when before the people for re-election, ' asked to change this record, while he was .frequently, requested to vote again for - manufacture. The only expression un•i favorable to the.proposition came by tele- . gram from Clay county at the eve of the vote, when the lines were definitely formed. ,". IS the people of this district were opposed •;to manufacture they were careful to con,!,. ,ceal their views upon the subject." Senator Funk's record in this as in ••-si-All his public service is above question. Jifo man has more faithfully represented .>„-a senatorial district in the history of - the state. .

The fact that such managers as Clarkson and Platt are willing to even consider ex- President Harrison shows how impossible it now seems to organize to defeat the McKinley boom. "Mr. Cleveland may be relied upon to do what he thints right about Cuba," said Senator Gray the other day. " He may be relied upon to do what ho d—- pleases," replied Senator Lindsay, and the chances are that this is the correct view. The Herald says: Carroll wants the next congressional convention for the Tenth district. We have fine hotel accommodations, a good place to hold the convention, and a class of people Who will appreciate the presence of such a gathering. Let's have it. The Nevada Representative figures out the cost of an extra session of the legislature. The daily expense of holding an extra session will be about this: 150 senators and representatives @ $0 a day, $900; em- ployes and other expenses, say, $600; total expense daily, • $1,500; expense of session, say 100 days @ $1,500, $150,000. Walter Wellman, the Washington correspondent of the Chicago Times-Herald, predicts that if the free silver men control the democratic national convention the sound money ring of the party will not openly bolt but will quietly vote the republican ticket. But if the sound money wing controls, he predicts that the silver wing will bolt openly and make another nomination. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Wm. Strickler of Burt is a phrenologist.

OTTUMWA, April 22.— S. B. Evans, chairman of the democratic state bimetallic committee, has issued the following circular letter: To the Bimetallic Democrats of Iowa: Agents of the money power, in conjunction with deluded democrats, aided by the republican press, are preparing to capture the Dubuque convention and make it declare in favor of the financial 'policy inaugurated by republicans when silver was demonetized in 1873, and now continued at the dictation of Wall street and foreign syndicates. Three- fourths of the democratic voters of Iowa are in favor of constitutional money; for gold and silver as the standard money of the country, and the coinage of both metals without discrimination against either. They were so last year, when the Marshalltown convention was captured by the gold power through federal office holders and by fraud and bogus proxies. This capture was facilitated by the specious plea that the money question was not at issue at that time, and the issue could be joined in the presidential year. The time has now arrived when there can no longer be such pleas offered. We must either be for the people, or against them; for the money of the constitution, or perpetuate the bond system that will end in financial thralldom to Europe. There would be no doubt as to the result at Dubuque if the democratic voters could be fairly represented and as they desire to be represented; but the convention was called at a frontier town in order that democrats from the interior, the west and south would be discouraged at the distance to be traveled, and thus fail to attend tbe convention. Federal office holders and their understrappers will provide free transportation to those who obtain proxies, pledge themselves to vote for the gold standard and against Horace Boies. I warn the friends of bimetallism to be on their guard and see that proxies, if obtained at all, shall go into the hands of those who will carry out the wishes of the people who are to be represented. The results of county conventions so far are encouraging in the highest degree. Nearly every county that has chosen delegates has instructed them to vote for the platform upon which Horace Boies led the democrats to the only victories they have»achieved during the past forty years, It is our plain duty to secure fair representation, and I beseech every democrat to make this last determined stand for the principles of Jefferson and Jackson, s. B. EVANS, Chairman State Bimetallic Democratic Committee. THE PENSION BQAflD CHANGE. James C, Taylor Post Adopt Resolutions Strongly Endorsing Dr. McCoy, The recent removal of Dr, McCoy from the board of pension .examiners and the appointment of Dr. Dunlap of Ledyard to succeed him was taken up by the James C, Taylor post last Wednesday, Dr, McCoy introduced the matter by giving his version of the differences between him and Drs. Kennefick and Tribon arising out of the Bossingham case. When he finished J, C. Raymond introduced verbal resolutions which stated that in the opinion of the post Dr, McCoy had been a faithful member of the board, a friend of the soldiers in pension matters, etc, There were some remarks and the resolutions were adopted unanimously. - It is Dr. McCoy's intention soon, to make a public statement concerning the controversy. Until he dpes there is little to be, known by the public. It seemj that when Mr, Bossingham came for examination Dp. McCoy was npt present »a4 Drs, Kenneflck and Tribon passed upon bis pase, Dr, McCoy wrote to the department qialming that he was not notified pf the meeting pf the board. Cpmmiebioner Loohren then wrote to Drs. Kennefick apd TrJbon rather reprimanding them. They at once made a, statement laying Dr. MoCpy'e 'failure tp be present to btf qwn. neglepi, Jn response' to this paro&jjr» McCoy's dismissal, which is the more marked inasmuch as Dr. Dun lapis alpQ ft democrat, leaying £he dorrespofident of the Algonft Soft tfovefflbeiN 1868, " we have not much to encotittiga us as a people in this part of the world." fhat was at tbe end of the wet summer. " Why are so many people leaving us?" asks another correspondent. The casunl reader might think one answered the other, but it seems not, for the argument against leaving was not that At' gona had much peospect> but that neither had any other part of the world. This second correspondent, who signs himself "one who has seen the animal," asks "are not times hard in other places too?" And he concluded by suggesting "that leaving this place to escape the monster Is like jumping out of the'fry Ing pan into the fire. Stay at home, work when you can, live frugally and hard times will leave us in time. We must wear him out and chase him off." The same note was sounded by the first writer, for he saye, "While we are being deserted by many of our former inhabitants we should show a persevering spirit that come what will we will stick to Algona and see what will be the end thereof." And then with something of the spirit of the year before he adds, "If Providence smiles upon this people It will be but a short time in our imagination until we shall see a flourishing town growing up from the present settlement and the hum and bustle will confuse many of us so that we shall bo compelled to leave town and retire to our farms," But bragging had lost its real hold on the people. They were sober enough as more than one communication in the Bee testifies. One note of joy is sounded—they were glad winter had come. "Winter again is here with its thousand hopes and joys—how pleasant the long winter eve " exclaims a rhapsodi- cal correspondent, while a more practical one snys "Welcome back old winter," to get rid of the "damp" davs, "but 'tis past and in spite of all the showers and floods none of us are quite washed away and the few who could endure to remain in one place so long are here to enjoy it," Thanksgiving and Christmas seemed to call out sad reflections. "Can this be Thanksgiving day?" asks one. "A dinner of mush and milk and two to eat it, Is this what we called Thanksgiving in the dear old home back among the hills and valleys of New England?" Then, as starvlngmen are said todream of banquets, the writer puts in two pages in telling about the preparations for an old New England Thanksgiving—all about the pies and cakes baked in advance, the turkeys caught and dressed, etc., etc. And at the end of it all back we come to the Algona mush and milk. "Years have fled since then, we view no more the festal board set with rich dessert, but on Thanksgiving day sit down to mush and milk or may be a corn dodger." But hope is still with us, for in conclusion we read: "Perhaps in a few years we shall welcome back the old fashioned New England Thanksgiving." Christmas brought out a poetical effusion: Christmas is gone, Christmas la past, A poor merry Christmas for me, And as I look back at my .corn meal fast And remember how lean a cake was the last, I wonder and sigh if it really can be. There are eleven stanzas to this complaint, all of which are calculated to emphasize the fact that corn meal was a staple in Algona: I unbuttoned my collar, rolled up my sleeves, Armed with a knife and a steel, With astonishment blank I looked on the leaves, There was nothing but Just corn meal. I had nary a doughnut, a tart, or a pie, A lobster, a fish, or an eel, My dinner was frugal as you will descry, Simple and plain corn meal. Not a rib, not a slice of meat to behold, Not an apple, nor even a peel. Mv meats are all gone, my vegetables sold, So I dined on simple corn meal. But even corn meal was endurable under certain conditions, which the poet enumerates: If I only had a virtuous wife, My grief and my sorrow to feel, Contented I'd dwell the rest of my life And live on simple corn meal. 'TIs hard to conquer my stubborn pride, And my wishes in public reveal, But Bee, dearest Bee, please me a bride And a bushel or two of corn meal, A more sober Christmas communication bears after these 40 years ample evidence that it expressed a sincere homesickness which had fallen on the whole settlement: "Christmas day. It draws near the dinner hour, I sit here all alone, all quiet, and think and gaze, I see far away across the great river to my old home among the hills and forests, In a good old farm house around a well filled table the family is seated. I see not there my fond father; he'passed away long years ago. I see not there my dear mother; she, too, tired of this weary life and went home to her Father above, But though these two dearest of earthly friends are not there, other dear ones there are to whom my heart fondly clings, Cheerful they all are ,nnd seemingly happy, and as they enjoy themselves they speak of the wanderer kindly, earnestly wishing me with them, How well would J li«e to go, There is no vacant chair, but how quickly would there be room could I but present myself. Many weary days have passed since I left them, and I do often fear that should I at a future day be permitted to visit the old home that some of those to whom my heart clings most fondly will have gone to their rest "•-" a kind Providence watches over a Haggard & Peek* city" were la lull WoSs&m AEBoS ObBtJ-i-ed Arbor da™ was duly observed in Algona. Thenorttat school bad a Worn- Ing celebration and the public schools took the afternoon. The exercises at the normal school were by the class. One of the entertaining features was Miss Mary Gtaffney's dedication of the class tree: « We have now been told Why we plant trees, What We 1 should plant, and how We should plant them, To in6 Is given the houoroit naming the tree Which represente all the learning, ambition, wit, genius, talent, and other attributes too numerous to mention—but all good, of course—which go to make up the class. When this subject Was first assigned to me I selected with pains-taking care the following name as ap propriate: Laurence-Ada-Grace-Will-Francis-Mary-Claude-Will - Elma - Charlie - Harvey - Albert - •Will-Hunt-Farley-Smith-Gaffney-Fish-Parsons-Stull-Ramsey - John' Ander-Wilkinson 1 I flattered myself that even the Immortal La Fayette didn't have such a name as that. But alas I the tree is not a very large one, and considering the fact that We want It to live I Wished to change the name. A friend suggested that I name it Caesar, With the hope that it would have 'Gaul 1 enough to grow; but I decided to name It simply ' Class of '90.' With prophetic vision I seem to see Prof. Lilly, bent with age and adorned with silver locks, standing m the doorway of the Northern Iowa Normal school. By his sloe stands his wife. She, too, has snowy hair, but is still erect and tall, as In youth. They are watching with loving eyes some of the descendants of the class of '96, who are under the wide spreading branches of this tree, enjoying a few minutes' recreation in its cooling shade; while from the fifth- story window is heard the voice of the young Prof. Henry Lilly, calling to Claude Stull Jr., who, being a chip of the old block, Is engaged in a heated discussion with young Wadsworth over some small, round objects which they had been rolling on the ground: ' Come up here, sir, It is time for geometry.' But to leave the future and come hack to the present: It Is time that this much enduring tree be put in its place; so I suggest that we 'stand not upon the order of planting, but plant at once." ELEVEN MAPLES PLANTED. At the public schools a general exercise was held on the lawn, at which all the classes gathered and which, was addressed by Supt. Reed and Harvey Ingbam. Music and recitations by Miss Edith Cowles, Chas. Sifert, and Miss Olive Minkler completed the program. Then all returned to their rooms, where special programs were given. Each room marched out by itself and dedicated one or two of the handsome hard maples bought with its pennies, and the ten rooms occupied the afternoon. The day was beautiful and the exercises of the children were very attractive and interesting. FIFTY GOLDEN YEAKS. Dr. and Mrs. Hudson Will Receive Congratulations Tomorrow. Many friends will meet tomorrow to celebrate the golden wedding of Dr. and Mrs. Hudson. They are two of the county's pioneers. The doctor came with D. Pine and Mr, Dickinson in 1864 to pick out a homestead, and in 1865 drove from Lee county, Illinois, with his family. It was a wet spring.. Mr. Pine had gone to the war and Mr, Dickinson stopped in Delaware county. The doctor alone came through and began alone on his well-known farm west of Sexton. Here he lived twenty years and here the family enjoyed the pleasant things and endured the privations of those times. Both Dr. and Mrs, Hudson were born in Suffolk county, Long Island. They lived less than a mile apart and attended school together. Here they were married, and here Quincy, the oldest child, was born. The doctor graduated in medicine at Pittsfield, Mass., and went to Brooklyn to practice. His health failed him and in 1851, in company with an older brother, he sailed for San Francisco, going around Cape Horn on a four months' voyage. He stayed a year, and his brother permanently, Coming back he crossed the isthmus of Panama, He has since been to California twice by rail, thus covering nearly all the various routes there are, This first trip west during the gold excitement started the fever for pioneering, and first a removal to 111- inois and then to Iowa was the result. Both Dr. and Mrs. Hudson belong to families of long standing in America, and they have in their home many curious reminders of the early days in the east. The grandfathers of both were in the Revolutionary war, Mrs, Hudson has one of the old warming pans that the women used to carry to church for their feet in the days before fires in church were allowed, Old bibles, school books, and family heirlooms are curiosities to the younger generation, They enjoy talking about the old times, anS their friends enjoy talking with them and noting the vigorous good health in which they have reached a milestone in lue not vouchsafed to many. Many happy anniversaries to come will be w shed them by the old friends who will gather tomorrow in their honor. Abstraets, Real Estate, Collections,.
