DOLLIVER ON BOIES. The Courier's criticism .of Congressman Dolllver's references to Uncle Horace last week in his speech in Washington are not to the point. The gist of Mr. Dolllver's remarks is contained in this sentence: " All his lifetime, even down to old age, ho had been a republican, looking through the dust and cobwebs of a country law of flee for a place on the ticket, until patience finally was regarded by him no longer as a real virtue, and so he joined himself to that portion of the population which believed that the corkscrew is the most essential device in the mechanism of civilization; and as an anti-prohibition republican he was selected to lead the democratic party to victory." Mr. Dolliver's reference to the corkscrew was outdone by Mr. Healey at Dubuque, who told the democrats that they had been canonizing the beer keg long enough. And his personal tone towards Uncle Horace does not compare with this from the New York Sun: "As Uncle Hod Boles peers into the dark backward and abysm of time and recalls the wild wave of hullabaloos which dashed over him when he was elected governor.of Iowa, and how he roamed through the land : as a militant apostle of tariff reform, he must look at his silver boom a little gingerly and suspiciously. For where is tariff reform as he preached it? Away in ;the ewlgkeit. And it may' occur to Uncle Hod that even the big white cartwheel and the sacrosanct ratio of 10 to 1 may yet and soon be trundled away and dumped at the same shadowy destination." We are willing the Courier should get after Mr. Dolliver with a sharp stick, but it: must first chastise the democrats, who are more uncomplimentary than he is to Uncle Horace. REWARDS OF OFPICE. Senator Funk uses Isaac Struble to point a moral. In 3882 Mr. Struble was elected to congress, getting the nomination as a dark horse. For four terms he was re-elected without much opposition, Then Geo. D. Perkins was chosen over him, by treachery, the Struble men have always claimed. Since that time Struble has been a ' standing candidate, each time defeated, this last time after a personal canvass pf every township, and after a campaign of much bitter feeling. Looking at his career Senator Funk is moved to say; "In our own state there have been scores of men ruined by a consuming. , desire for olBce," and he concludes, "the young man who indulges an ambition to follow office holding as a regular occupation is very apt in the evening of life to find himself misera- 1 We," , The instances of disappointed old age among' political leaders are so numer- • pus that the exceptions are note• worthy, Political ambition grows with '• that it feeds on, and no man, who has wWOt voluntarily retired from office, has ever yet felt that the public had ap* f-preciated l»is services, Senator Edi astonished the country by '.vol- resigning hie seat, ap.4 return' tp tke.^joyraeRts of private- iifc.- 1 Reed contemplates giving up i sej&Hfl congress and going to New tq practice law.

The great Chicngo packer classifies dead- beatlsm with intemperance, gambling, •contentiousness and other disqualifying evils. There are lots of these parasites in the world and it is surprising how generously they ore treated. Some people have no sense of obligation, and they are conceited hypocrites who affect great wisdom and superior airs. < President Cleveland has vetoed the river and harbor bill of this congress. It appropriated over $70,000,000 for various improvements. None of them were proposed for the Tenth district of Iowa, so no one will grieve here. The big auditorium built at St. Louis for the republican convention was not seriously damaged by the cyclone. It will be in entire readiness when the delegates get together. The democrats explain the deficit in the treasury by saying that it was caused by the McKinley tariff. The Sioux City Journal points out that while a deficiency of sixty-two millions did occur while the McKinley law was unrepealed, it all occurred after the democrats came into control. During President Harrison's term there was a surplus under the McKinley tariff each .year. The election of President Cleveland on a platform promising radical changes is what brought business to a standstill and caused the failure of revenue. Georgia has passed a law prohibiting running freight trains on Sunday. The supreme court at Washington holds the law constitutional. The Midland for June has as pleasant an account of traveling in Egypt as has appeared anywhere. And Consul Richman describes a mock battle in Switzerland in his usually graphic style. The quality of the Midland is steadily improving. No one can look at the proportions of Potnpey's pillar in Alexandria as given in the Midland and then at the Iowa soldiers' monument without having a suspicion that they knew more about some things 2,000 years ago than we do now. llftaf tjf W« WHFHftlv* "What the Rifist the Maitef.

Senator Quay says McKinley will nominated on the first ballot. be It is now certain that the silver forces will control the Chicago convention. It will be unnecessary for President Cleveland to write a letter declining a third term. The country will always have an opportunity to speculate on whether he actually hoped to be a third term president. Ex-Speaker Crisp of Georgia thinks Horace Boies is the coming man. The drift of opinion, however, is towards Vice President Stephenson, A. B. Cummins makes a sensible suggestion, It is that any parade or display by Senator Allison's friends at St, Louis would only subject them to ridi» oule. If by any chance his nomination should beoqme a possibility it will npw pome without any waving of banners or parading. The national convention meets }n S£.

It was tested lost week and will do business. It cost, with 300 feet of hose, $700. J. W. Cory led a bolt out of the Dickinson county convention. We thought J. W. had moved to Spencer. Perhaps this was his leave taking. Stitzel X. Way, cashier of the Wesley State bank, attended the Iowa State Bankers' association held at Marshalltown on the 26th and 27th. Wesley Reporter: Think of it, and just after their big revival too. Algona has some people who rob graveyards of flowers left on the tombs by friends. The county fair at Emmetsburg comes Sept. 2-4; at Humboldt, Sept. 22-24; at Clarion, Sept. 22-25; at Fonda, Sept. 1-4; at Ruthven, Sept. 14-17.

Dr. Peters of Burt has been In Chicago a few days attending the alumni meeting of his old school and renewing acquaintances with the faculty and school chums. Engle Grove is talking about storm caves. Engle Grovers are in hard luck. They stand a chance of being drowned If they go into the caves and of being blown away if they don't. Ruthven Appeal: Over at Algona the citizens are raising money for their band to give open air concerts on the street every Saturday afternoon. It will be a great drawing card for the town. Wesley Reporter: William Woodcock was in town yesterday. He had been to Algona and taken the bodies of his five children from the cemetery there and will re-inter them in the Buffalo Center cemetery. Burt Monitor: A number of our people took in the " Black Hussar" at the opera house last Friday night, presented by the Columbia Opera company, and pronounce it the best entertainment ever given in the Call house. COL CLARffl BOtJVEM Some Interesting History Regarding the Medal Ha Recently Received ft'Oftt Cbrtifhtrtded for bistifigulshed and GoiU ftpicuotU tJrdv«fy—f hft Detailed Correspondence. opera The Spencer News says: Rev, T. F. Bowen last Friday moved his family to Spencer, and is living in the Woodcock house, on east Fourth street, where he will continue to reside until the Episcopal chapel, which is being converted into a parsonage, is ready for occupancy. Swea City Herald: Ernest Raymond of Algona has passed the examination so that he is a full fledged attorney at law, and has gone into partnership with his father. As Ernest used to do the "inking" act in the Review office at LuVerne, for Mr. Ellis, we have felt more than usual interest in his welfare, and hope he will soon become a prominent figure before the judicial bar. Last week THE ttet»ER DBS made brief reference to tlio modal lately awarded to Col. Chits. A, Ulai-ke by congress. Below is the official corfe* spohdehoe. Cot. Clarke Was one of four brothers to.go to the war. Whiting was shot twice, once in the side and once in the arm, and barely lived. Jaines was shot In the same engagement and died in the hospital. Frahk was shot through the h&tod and has three fingers he cannot «se. Charles was shot in the leg, and still walks tame, Geo. B, enlisted as a boy just up from aslck bed, werit toBangor and was rejected. That Is a pretty patriotic record for one family. The official letter accompaning the medal states the occasion for its being issued, as follows: "This officer, then being adjutant of the Sixth Maine Infantry volunteers, having voluntarily taken commnnd of his regiment in the absence of its commander, and at great personal risk and with remarkable presence of mind and fertility of resource, led the command down an exceedingly precipitous embankment to the Rappahnnnock river, and by his gallantry, coolness and good judgment in the face of the enemy saved the command from' capture and destruction." The official reports In the war department, copies of which have been furnished Colonel Clarke, give the following account of the conduct for which this medal Is issued. Extracts from the special reports of colonel, afterwnrds general, Hiram Burnham, commanding the light division: HEADQUAHTERS LIGHT DIVISION, SIXTH COUPS, May 13, 1868,-Major General John faedgwick, Commanding Sixth Corps—Sir • I have the honor to bring to your notice the following named officers and enlisted men of this command who distinguished themselves during the recent operations of trie army on the right bank of the Rappahannock. * * * I have also mentioned Adjt. Charles A. Clarke, Sixth Maine Vols., in my report of operations. He is highly com mended b.y his regimental commander for gallant and meritorious conduct, both at the heights of St. Marye and Brook's Ford. From my personal knowledge of the circumstances, I would say that his coolness, bravery, and good behavior elicit my warmest admiration and praise. He has fully earned promotion. * * - * Very respectfully, your obedient servant, HIUAM BuimiAii. Colonel Commanding Light Div. In a subsequent special report, dated May 23, 1863, Colonel Burnham said: "In pursuance of General Order No. 55, Headquarters Army of the Potomac, I have the honor to submit the following list of officers, non-commissioned officers and privates of this command who deserve special mention for distinguished and gallant services in the face of the enemy during the recent campaign. ***** p^.gt Lieut. Charles A. Clarke, Adjt., is commended for distinguished and conspicuous bravery at the Heights of St. Marye. He was in the first group which entered the works of the enemy. He is also commended for most conspicuous bravery and daring at Brook's Ford on the night of May 4, where he exposed his person fearlessly, and by his own personal exertions extricated the regiment from the most perilous situation in which it has ever been placed; to do this be rode his horse over a precipitous bluff, unmindful of personal peril. He is deserving of brevet medal, or mention in general orders. Has been honorably mentioned heretofore for distinguished services at Williamsburg, Golding's Farm, Antle- tara, and Fredericksburg, December, 13, 1862." te£8 stfeet eft bidet* ft, 65, & tire northwest corner" of block On ftftid College Street to tout It iff good con dition tot travel and traffic.

Algona ought to have lights, but such plants as those at Esthervllle owned by the city should be investigated before any franchise is asked for, An electric light plant does not cost much and can be put in and pay a profit with low cost to consumers.

In talking about circus troubles from flood Mr. Kirkhart related his experiences at McGregor a week ago. The circus was loaded on the cars and a switch engine was coming down the track to take it out. The flood caught the engine and swept it into the i-iver, but just missed the loaded train. Seven bill posters took refuge in a box car and six were drowned. The circus was pulled down to Dubuque and tried hard to get a train north to meet its engagements. Finally it had to go back in ^Minnesota, around by Austin, and down to Mason City to get to the Milwaukee line again, It lost four stands but is still on deck and Mr.'Kirkhart says it will so continue. He added that hereafter all reports about his committing suicide, becoming bankrupt etc,, might be denounced on sight He says he Is in the circus business to remain to the end of the chapter, The circus drew a fair crowd in Algona and gave a good show. A great many exceptionally good features were shown. It has a fine band., is free from gamblers and fakes of every kind is a clean and decent aggregation, and being an Iowa, circus ought to be liberally patronized.

The waters are in good condition and everything looks bright for the future. Several new grounds have been opened up and cottages are being built at Spirit Lake and also on the Okobojis. The dam will be built this summer, and this will raise the water several feet In the Okobojts so as to make continuous navigation possible from the Hotel Orleans to the furthest limit of West Okoboji. It will also deepen the passage ways between Okoboji and several smaller adjoining lakes. Little Spirit lake, which has always been a favorite fishing ground, will be reconnected with Spirit lake. " The Hotel Orleans has opened up in splendid slmpe, and the proprietors say they have never had so good business at the beginning of the season. They have an unusually large amount of business engaged for the summer, all of which indicates that life at the Orleans will be all that can be desired." ' Referring to the-Chautauqua, which has been a great success in past years, and has drawn thousands of people to the lake, Senator Funk says that it will be held from July 2 to July 17. It will be impossible to give all the attractions of the splendid meeting, but the pro- grtim includes addresses from a number of the best orators in the country, also- fine musical features, besides the class and routine work. On the first Dr. Gunsaulus, the famous Chicago lecturer, will speak. TJje, Fourth of July will be given over to an immense celebration, and Congressman Dolliver will be the orator. In the evening a stereopticon entertainment will be given in the amphi- theatre. The 6th is known as " recognition day,"an important event to all Chautauquans. The exercises will be in charge of Miss Kate Klmball of Buffalo, N. Y., the world's secretary of the C. L. S. C. For the 7th the management has engaged the famous colored lecturer, Booker T. Washington, who created such a sensation at the Atlanta exposition by his matchless oratory. On the 8th and 9th Mrs. French-Sheldon, the noted woman African exploreiv will give addresses. On the 10th Gen. Gordon., the southern orator, will give his famous lecture on the rebellion. The llth is " veterans'day," with an address by Dr. Robert Mclntyre of Chicago, a,nd in the evening he will preach The 14th and 15th Bishop Fowler lectures and speaks on Chautauqua work- On the 16th Rev. J. M. Cleary of Minneapolis will speak on temperance. He is one of the most noted temperance orators of the country and is president of the Catholic Total Abstinence society of the United States. The Chautauqua will close on the 17th with the "Cantata of Queen Esther." New costumes have been procured, and this is expected to be a brilliant presentation. •The musical features will be excellent. A double quartette and several soloists, besides strong chorus work, will join-to make the musical features of the Chautauqua meeting strong and enjoyable. . Cheap Excursions West and South.
