Ytese battle ftr CALLING CONVENTION'S. The resolutions adopted twice in " Kossuth county providing a regular time for calling county conventions promise to be in the way in case the judicial convention is called for June 10 as has been talked. The resolutions provide that the county convention for .selecting delegates to the state, congressional, and judicial conventions, shall be held on'the Friday before the state convention, which this year will be on July 10. Some change will have to be made to get delegates to the judicial convention if it is to be.held ahead of the state convention. This brings up the whole matter of calling conventions for consideration and suggests the query, why are judicial and congressional conventions called out of their order? The theory is a national convention first, then the state conventions, then the minor conventions. What is gained by putting the cart before the horse, as in the First district, where Congressman Glark has already been renomlnatod before even the platform of the national campaign has been agreed upon? . And what reason is there why a judi- rcial convention should be called in this district here early in June, in less than three weeks, nearly six months ahead of the election, and three months ahead of the campaign? The congressional convention has been called rightly for July 26, two weeks after the state convention*. Two weeks later than that or eight weeks for that matter is early . enough for a judicial convention. •The Kossuth member pf the judicial cpmmittee, E. V. Swotting, will use - his influence to keep the convention in its proper order, in which case the ,, coupty conventions can come as the party has expressed a very decided ,-• wish to have them come, It will be '•better for everybody when this idea of .^getting conventions called early or late ' to.benefit one or another candidate or • one or another supppsed interest is finally disppsed pf, and' when by cprn- •' - mon consent conventions are called in their regular order and as nearly as may be during the same months each year, _______________ NEWS AKD OOMMENT.

Mr. Cornwall has served two terms in the Iowa legislature. He is regarded as a man of sterling character and excellent judgment. If the people of his district should nominate and elect him they will never have occasion to regret their choice, we believe. He is a gentleman of unimpeachable integrity. Senator Funk gives Hon. W.

OHABLEY BEOfrSON HtJUT, His Foot 18 Mangled by the Cars in Chicago—We«ley Notes. WESLEY, May 18.—Word has been received here that Charley Bronson got his foot crushed by the cars at the Union stock yards, Chicago, Friday morning. Later J. H, Ward received a dispatch from Bronson affirming the report. Monday morning J. H. Ward received a letter from F. M. Butts of Chicago stating that he went and saw Mr. Bronson and that his foot was pretty badly hurt, but the doctors say they think they can save the foot. There is nothing definitely known how the accident occurred. One report is that he fell from the top of a car while the train was making a switch near the stock yards. His brother from Sanborn arrived here this morning and intends going- to Chicago to bring him home. Mr. Bronson has been buying and shipping considerable stock lately, and it was with one of these shipments he got hurt. The Chicago report of the accident is: Early this morning Brpnspn arrived in Chicago on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road with a load of cattle. His train was switched to the Northern Pacific tracks, over which the cattle were taken to the stock yards. Bronson was walking on top of the cars, and when the train reached Twenty-sixth street it gave a sudden lurch forward, throwing Bronson to the ground between two cars, and when the train was stopped it was .found his right leg was badly crushed. J. S. Gallagher has his new machine shed nearly enclosed. It is 40x40, 16- foot post. The wet weather during the past week has put a damper on corn plant?, ing.

Hogelle of Salem occupied the M. E. church pulpit for Rev. Plummer Sunday night. We have a night watch who is always around on his beat and lets nothing pass by unnoticed, and tells no tales out of .school. Yet there is a young couple here who sigh and wonder if he ever talks in his sleep. THE OORDNEB MEETINGS CLOSE. After Three Weeks In Algona Evangelist Cordner Returns to Ills ' Home In Chicago. Evangelist Cordner closed his meetings in Algona Sunday evening, the rink being packed to hear his farewell address. In the morning a free-will offering was made to pay him and his singer and $333.78 was raised .without much solicitation. In the evening the pastors, who have worked with him, endorsed him and his attitude towards social amusements. The result of the meetings is the enrollment of Over 800 converts, the larger part of that number being children. The meetings are being continued the present week by the local pastors, Rev. Landis preaching each evening. The judgment that has been passed uppn Mr, Cordner and his work varies according to the standpoint of the judge, Those who sustain him say that he has conducted over 200 revivals and knows how to begin and hpw to close, Those who do not sustain him say that his extreme and extravagant statements during his first week's meetings Instead of benefiting his pause injured it, and did the town no gppd, To meet socially, Mr, Cordner is a genial, pleasant man, He has a constitutipn pf iron, tremendous vigor, a gift of direct and forcible speech, and great earnestness. He does not resort to emotionalism in his work, and represses the sentimental tendencies pf the prdlnary revival, He preaches sermons pf great ppwer when at his best, At leaving Mr. Cordner said Algpna was the hardest town tp dp wprk in he pud ever visited, This probably expressed his own opinion that the results had not been adequate to the effort. This is also the opinion of many disinterested observers, A FIRST QLASS SHOW.

As he did so the teaBn turned and came on him, the wagon tongue striking him in the breast, knocking him down. Oho horse then trampled on him, breaking two ribs over the heart, and the wagoti passed over him, He lived until 4 o'clock Sunday morning and then passed away, The funeral was held yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and Was attended by a big delegation of Grand Army members and Knights of Pythias from Algona. Mr. Hotelling was a strong man in vigorous middle age, and was a prominent citizen of Whittemore. His death Is one that will be regretted by all who knew him. WHITTEMORE, May 19.—A. H. Hotelling was born near Albany, N. Y. March 22, 1843, and died May 17, 1896 At the age of 18 he enlisted in the Illinois infantry and served two years when he was discharged for disability Soon after he enlisted in an Ohio regi ment and served with distinction unti the close of the war. In 1866, he came to Mason City and was married there in 1867. In 1885, he removed to Dako ta, and three years later came to this place, where he has since made his home. He has earned the respect am esteem of all with whom he has come in contact, as was shown by the closing of the stores during the funeral, and by the attendance of all classes at the funeral. ^^^^^^^^^___^ JUDGE QUASTON SUSTAINED. The Supreme Court Upholds an Important Ruling In a Spirit JLak Saloon Case. A year ago W. B. Arnold, of Arnold park fame, was indicted for beer sell ing at and about his premises at Oko boji lake. Judge Quarton ruled ugains him in the trial and the supreme cour sustains him. The court says in th< opinion rendered by Chief Justice Roth rock: It appeared that the defendnn was proprietor of a hotel situated on Lake Okobojl in Dickinson county There was a hotel and other building appurtenant thereto, such as an ic house, a barn, and other structures The state proved pne Pr more sales o intoxicating liquors in the hotel build ing, and evidence was introduced tend ing to show sales in the barn and else where on the premises. It was clai raei that all the evidence with reference t sales in the appurtenant buildings wo. improperly allowed to be introduced "This point,"says the supreme court " is not well taken. It was strictly coi rect to introduce evidence to shov where.the defendant had his base supplies. State of Iowa vs. Illsley, 8 Iowa 49." The counsel for defendan I'eviewed the testimony of the witnesse and urged that the evidence did no support the verdict, and that the cour made erroneous rulings in admittin evidence.

A Sketch of the Opera as Given li Cedar Rapids—Compliments Po the Performers. The Columbia Opera company was i: Cedar Rapids last Thursday and Fri day evenings: The Daily Republica says of them: "Thecompany inability is far above the average. In fact neat ly all members of the cast are artists and those lovers of comic opera who re •mained away from the opera house las night missed a rare musical treat, is safe to predict that the audience to night at the performance of the "Blacl Hussar" will be far larger than It wa last night. The company deserves thronged house. It carries its ow scenery and orchestra. The cast of th Black Hussar is a large one and th costuming is said to be well worth see ing. The opera will be presented by i most capable company." The Republican's'report of the open gives an interesting sketch of the plo after saying of the rendition: "Th< Columbia. Opera company gave the Black Hussar to a highly pleased ence at Greene's last evening, The company is composed of a lot of mos capable people. The opera given las evening is one pf those light, jolly af fairs, most pleasing to an audience,' The plot is thus given by the Republi can: The scene of the opera is laid in the town of Trautenfeld on the borders of Germany and Russia during the time when Napoleon was trying to conquei the world. Haokenbeok is chief magistrate of the city and has a hard time to keep his political preferences in line with various armies that at times pass through the town. He has twp damrh ters, Minna and Rosetta, whom he dresses in eutlandish style in pj-der to keep any ypung man from falling in IPve with them, In spite pf this Hans v onWaldetnan manages tp fall i n i ove with Minna. Just at this period the Black Hussars are trying to free the section from the tyranny pf both French and .Russians, and Frederick von Herbert, colonel pf the prganizatipn, opines to Tmvitenfeia to see what can be done He lifts a, consultation with von Walde- , , e- mann, ftnd the two agree to work to- g9ther,do.wn the wavering for hie capture l)t« and. «wn«t .UTS a e»» WaldemaM h«^ftiffl|fi86l)ed at All ,o any II the men o ie own tire co pass in front of the official to see if ^.,y fit the description of the suspected revolutionary emissary. Hackettback is taken according: to the description. Before he is hurried off to prison the Black Hussars rush in and capture the French, von Herbert throwing off his disguise and assutnming command, Hackenback is sent to prison never.thf less in spite of the protestations of his daughters, but with the assurance that he will be liberated when the troublous times are over. The closing scenes are in the forest camp of the Hussars outside the towtt. There are fancy drills, good songs and a happy ending when the whole company appears THE TWIN PITIES. One of the first and most important items to be considered by anyone contemplating the map man, J.HCJ uume BO IAH it*i Tribune MB jttst ftbwrt tp§ wt$ l» by week, Last sprint teiaae«ffi 4« werkiHf the fe*£ ^strafe with smooth face and bias lightning talk act IB our otu, we told hiifi thai Sftep h§ f&t n , 8 made if they were anythin-g-we t we would take one, told him it , good time to buy when he had thing to sell arid had it with hits pleaded) f ot mad, and argued Until gave him an-"ectuivoeal ftfiewef," »j was quite long so we won't print it, he sold the Tribune ho maps at f not any. But he took orders IM,* others and $5,220 is the amount thebw fit takes out of Hancock couniv iSS they'll take it too, although sotae a* Clare they will not accept the man, £ atlas. There is hardly & school hoofo where it belongs, streams, reads, fafC towns, have a faculty of getting ow! t in places where they do not belong, Wit the "contract" for pay is all rMt The same man don't come around col' lecttng. This one is a good one too 1 though be talks loud, and "reads i'hl' law." It reads $12.60 ultimately. t» reads $5,220. It is a little change from the usual " V, A. S." This is $I2.6CIA S., same A. S. but different figures We were offered one of these atlases for $5. It would perhaps be a verv fair price Were the atlas correct. If« man knows just where it is incorrect it attending a national gathering like the G. A. R. encampment is that of hotel accommodations and board while in the cities. With hotels both St. Patil and Minneapolis are amply supplied. In St. Paul the Ryan, Windsor, Metropolitan, Clarendon, Grand Central, and Pacific are all first class in every respect, and range in rates from $1 per day upward to suit the taste and purse of all desiring accommodations. In Minneapolis the West hotel is the most magnificent, it being one of the largest and finest structures of its kind in the west. Then comes Hotel Nicollet, the Brunswick, St. James, National, Vendome, Warwick, and Grand Central. Rates in any of the above named hostelries are reasonable for the excellent accommodations given and cannot fail to suit the most fastidious. No one can expect to attend any large gathering without considerable necessary expense, but this can be reduced to u minimum if one can only learn the secret of economy. The lowest rates at any hotel will be §1 per day. This is very reasonable. But a more convenient way is simply to engage beds for the night, and secure board at some restaurant, many of which are always convenient, and at which meals can be obtained at from 10 cents to $8, and at any hour of the day or night. At a large gathering of this kind, where there is so much to attract one's attention, meal time is often overlooked, therefore the restaurant is to be commended. If possible en gage rooms in advance, then you will have no worry or trouble upon your arrival in the city as to where you are to stop. Doubtless many of the veterans and their families will enjoy tent life, which is always a feature of national encampments, and one, no doubt, which adds greatly to the enjoyment of the boys in blue. ' Many people unaccustomed to city ways and modes of travel have a fearful dread of being overcharged by hack drivers, 'busses, and cabs, but this is uncalled for. Cities have prescribed rates for all such vehicles, and for the benefit of strangers I append the rates as fixed by city ordinance. The prices of rates of fare required by the owners or drivers of vehicles for the conveyance of passengers within the cities of St. Paul or Minneapolis as provided for by city ordinances are as follows: One passenger, one mile or less $ 50 One passenger, over one mile to ly, miles 7!> One passenger, over itf miles to 2 miles 1 00 Each additional passenger with same party without regard to distance 50 Children under five years free, five to 14 half above rates. For the use of any carriage or vehicle by the hour, with one or more passengers and the privilege of going from place to place, and stopping when desired, the following charges may be made; Two-horse vehicles for the first hour SI 50 Two horse vehicles each additional hour or part thereof -inn One horse vehicles for the first hour!" " 1 00 One horse vehicles each additional hour or part thereof so Passengers traveling in any of the above vehicles shall be allowed to have their ordinary baggage conveyed thereon (not exceeding one trunk and 25 pounds of other baggage) without extra charge. Where the whole weight exceeds 100 pounds, 15 cents may be charged for each additional pack age to city limits. , When more is charged take the number of the cab and report the fact to the police' Now as to points of interest. First we have Fort Snelling, a place not only of local interest as it now stands, but one full of historic interest to early settlers of the great northwest. The original fort was not built on the present site, but was on the Menciota side of the river, and was known ?! Fort Coldwater. This was erected in 1820, and was occupied by Col. Leavenworth and about 100 men who came from Detroit, Michigan. Fort Snelling, or "New Hope" as it was called- until 1&4, when Gen. Winfleld Scott changed its name as a compliment to its builder, Col. Josiah Snelling, was slowly but surely assuming ner- manent form and solidity, but iTwVnot completed until 18M. In 1857 the post and surrounding reservation was sold by the S^ ta f y iS* war fo ^ 90 .° 00 to a Mr. Steele, now of Minneapolis, The government however, repurchased it at t£e breakup out of the civil war, and from within ite walls many a gallant soldier boy marched forth to fight in the great rebellion and in the numerous wars against the Indians days. Snelling has iis place T« hfstory ft h^ fulfilled us destiny and today }t is a decav- ing monument to mu-k the — ? • y , only when lookinsr at warded anywhere on West 7th street ni- «? is a very good atlas, but that kind of a man doesn't need an atlas very badly nnd to the other it is quite misleading, The Tribune has a correct map of Hatt- cock county which it gives away sometimes when it has any on hand. And always revises it every year, putting on new railroads, enlarging town plats'-' etc. It isn't a $12,60 map. The actual cost is about three cents apiece. It is not as large nor as nice as the $12.60 article but it is accurate. We will or- i der them from our own lithographic I stone in Chicago at three cents apiece in 500 lots for anybody. Until another map man comes. AMONG THE ADYERTISEES. Robinson advertises screens. •Algona is the place to buy clothing. ,1 If'you see it, advertised in THE UP-' PER DES MOINES buy it.
