If permitted to, run the length which some of the ^;self-appointed managers would like, it • can become nothing short of the farce 'and laughing stock which the level< headed, though loyal, delegates them• selves are able already to foresee. This ' movement is in line with the attempt being made by certain nine-spot politicians in Des Moines to raise a fund of some $5,000 by assessment of the Iowa delegates. The whole performance is ill advised and out of keeping with reasonable or sensible methods, and should be so thoroughly squelched by the delegates themselves, who alone are able to shut it off, as to save the republicans of Iowa from the humillat- < ing position in which they will be • placed if the farce is permitted to be carried out. The Iowa delegation will vote for Allison at St. Louis, but Iowa republicans will vote for McKinley in November. HELEX GOTTX-D'S GIFT. Helen Gould drew her check for 5100,000 and sent it to the St. .Louis .cyclone sufferers. It was a magnificent -gift, and is said to be characteristic of the young woman's ideas of charity. People will not accuse her of having done this for the purpose of invoking human praise—so often true of those who give apparently for charity's sake —when it is known that she devotes largely of her time to charitable work. She cares very little for society, and keeps a watchful eye for those who are poor and needy, giving of her immense wealth where it is likely to be the most beneficial. The fact that she has never permitted her picture to be printed in the newspapers is the best evidence of her good, hard sense. There ought to be more Helen Goulds. wr mfir ( • , , . ..—, jytfaitrtftUa' tad?ei to Thi ttftti Who euffge^ted that per' would h-aw lo b^ held ifi dhtcaps Hot a*flfe that ChloBgo fade riot the ffiofiey to py ?OP the BJetit the dettobWitte circus pfoffiises to be faf ahead of ftnyibirtg before held in ft Is said the ttettinley men 'will we&f Napoleotiid unifrtftflB, which the Register 1 declares Is another specie's of political folly, Quite fight.

J M where he will inhale sea ozone until next Monday, when he will leave for St. Louis to aid in closing up the advance detail work of the republican national convention. C, E. McCannon retires from the Spencer Reporter and Dr. Bobbins will go it alone. The Reporter is a good paper, and outward indications point to it as a financially profitable concern. Kelley, Story county, has a politician who is so worried as to who will receive the nomination for president that he recently picked up a sack of corn meal instead of millet seed and sowed it without noticing the difference. Prank Day puts it this way in the Fairmont Sentinel: There isn't much chance to make campaign capital against any party on account of the river and harbor bill. Republicans, democrats, and populists all had a hand in the infamous job. NEWS AND COMMENT. ^ ;' Geo, D.

'sad tq have opened, Gib. Pray's Boom Fund. Geo. C. Call has received numerous letters the past week in response to those he sent out concerning the Gib. Pray, grab. In a few cases only had the delegates remitted the $100 asked for, while most of them had either refused or asked for taore information. Those who had sent In their money expressed their regret at having done so. It may be fairly said that Mr. Call's activity in this matter has been the means of heading off an .unworthy and unholy scheme by which the .Iowa delegates were to be mulcted of their dollars with no assurance of the purposes to which the fund was to be applied. The mulct may be well enough in some cases, but this is not one of them. Mr, Call is of the opinion, from what he can learn, that not more than $1,000 has yet been added to the fund, with the probability that it will not be very much augmented. Gib. set his stakes for 85,000, and if he has to stop at one-fifth of that amount it will be a- sad blow to his disinterested (?) efforts for the cause. IN THIS tfEIGHBOKHOOD. The Leader says Ledyard will celebrate the coming Fourth, F. T. Sheppard, formerly on the Leader at Ledyard, has gone to Polk City to start a paper. Lu Verne citizens are making efforts to raise money for a celebration there on the Fourth. As yet the thing is not a sure go. Eagle Grove has had a dose of " Si Perkins" too. That company was there Monday night. The Si Perkins show is incomparable. The Armstrong base ball club hired a professional to play with them by the name of Cussin. But that wasn't what he was hired to do. Erametsburg Beporter: Mrs. Samuel Mayne of Bancroft arrived, Tuesday evening, to spend a few days in visiting with Mrs, L. H.

BBMET. A ttltt Cfelebftttloll-WllI Meet Nestt 1'eaf at Wesley. Some thirty Odd Fellows and their wives from Algona lodge went to Brltt last week Tuesday for the big celebration, and all report a splendid attendance and a royal good time. A report of the day's doings is contained in a dispatch to the Register, which says! Yesterday was a gala day for Odd Fellows in this part of the state who gathered in Britt to celebrate the anniversary of the order. Special trains came in bringing delegations from the lodges at Humboldt, Llvermore Lu- Verne, Corwlth, Forest City, Algona, Wesley, Garner, Clear Lake, Thompson, Buffalo Center and Clarion. A varied and instructive program was carried out, consisting of musical selections by the Britt cornet band and Choral society, male quartette and Algona mandolin club; addresses of 'welcome by Mayor Duff and Rev. Stewart, responded to by Rev. W. F. Laid ley; oration by Hon. J. H. Funk of Iowa Falls. An address on Rebelmh work, by Mrs. Victoria Walk ins of Huraboldt; recitations by Misses Myrtle Dunsmore and Daisy Combs. Such gatherings cannot but advance the interests of the order by bringing its membership into closer union and impressing the beauty of its principles more fully upon those yet outside its mystic union. Several of the speakers touched upon the thought which is more and more engaging the attention of the members of the order, and that is that the time will come when sex shall be no bar to the full enjoyment and participation in the privileges and benefits of the order. The annual district meeting will be held at Wesley next year." OOMMENOEMENT DAYS. Baccalaureate Sermon by IJev. Sinclair J-inst Sunday E'venln'c — The Normal ProKram for Next Monday Evening.

So Our Officials Take Them Under a State Statute, Which Proves Quite ns Effective. The supervisors at their meeting last week had before them several bills incurred by reason of the arrest and care of tramps, many of whom were put to work on the streets of Algona, and naturally the board questioned the liability of the county to pay. The unfortunate fact seems to exist that the city has no ordinance on its books covering the tramp nuisance, nor by which any person passing through the city and guilty of no worse crime than that of asking for food or aid can be legally put under arrest. It was for this reason, apparently, that the numerous gangs of hoboes taken in last month were arrested under a state statute which gives authority for dealing with them summarily. This made the expense a county, charge, and there was nothing for the board to do but pay the bills. The .fact that the tramps were worked on the streets was a matter of no expense to the county, as city officials stood guard over them. If in similar cases in future the county will furnish a man to watch them, there seems to be no good reason why tramps cannot be worked on the county highways as well as the city streets. As a matter of fact we think the county might realize a good margin on tramps thus employed, and it would be likely to prove in a large measure a remedy for: the prevailing tramp nuisance. It seems to be a fact that tramps have been 'conspicuous for their absence since so many of them were set to work on our streets last month. Meantime it might not be a bad plan for the city fathers to enact an ordinance which will give the city authorities some power in the. matter. THOSE BAND CONGESTS.
