Call St. Louis, dated last Saturday, states that a big Victor? lias been Won .for decent political methods. At the state caucus Col, Henderson was chosen Ch&frmaii and Geo. 0. Call secretary. A finance committee was then elected "unanimously"totake charge of all disbursements, to decide upon what is legitimate headquarters expense, and to make assessments to meet the same. Messrs. Helsell, Macomber, and French were chosen 'such committee, This ends the irresponsible assessment bust- nefis, probably for good in towa. THAT $100 ASSESSMENT* The discussion of Gib Fray's $100 assessment on the delegates to the St. Louis convention has brought out at least one interesting fact. In an interview in Des Moines A. B. Cummins, delegate at large, states that he received no request to pay an assessment. .There has for a long time been a SUB. picion that this irresponsible assessment scheme was not worked with entire impartiality, and that the burden has been generally placed upon unsuspecting and ambitious statesmen , '. from the rural districts. If others • would testify it would doubtless appear that neither Senator Gear, J. S. Clarkson, nor W. P. Hepburn, delegates at large, were asked by Mr. Pray to contribute. The only paper in the state that pretends to offer any excuse for Mr. Pray is the Register. It says that the delegates to St. Louis did not agree among themselves that they would make their own assessments, pay their own expenses, and elect their own treasurer. In this it is not informed, for the u always truthful" would not say so otherwise. It likewise intimates that Delegate Call and others are trying to 'avoid tbe usual expenses which go with the honor of representing the state. , As to this, without making any invidious comparisons, THE UPPER DES MOINES will stake its reputation that Delegate Call will pay as willingly, as promptly, and as much out of bis own •pocket, to see Iowa properly represented as Delegate J. S. Clarkson will, ' and it will stake its reputation further that J. S. Clarkson has sent Gib Pray just as little as any other member of the Iowa delegation—in other words f not one red cent. , The Register says THE UPPER DES MorNES"has unnecessarily done an injury to the Iowa delegation." THE UPPER DES MOINES has been commended almost universally for what it has said, and Mr. Call's mail brought .. him dozens of letters every day after his circular letter was sent out congratulating him on making a stand and beginning a movement which will in the end free Iowa republicans from the demands of a set of political cormorants who hover about Des Moines. The delegates elected to St. Louis are perfectly competent to decide what - expenses are necessary, they were chosen by the state to make Senator • Allison's campaign, they know perfectly well what they want to do and how they want to do it. They do not need the assistance of any self-appointed .treasurer, nor of any self-appointed , Allison committee. When they fail to '' properly represent the state there will 'fee time enough to consider the pro' ~prioty of hereafter turning the whole thing over tp G}b Pray, Doc, Hutchins K: a"njBpme others of that ilk, Until then let us hope that they will find : some one, who has not been repudiated .utterly wherever he is known, to col- iJfot and pay, out the money they decide is needed, of; the meeUBgB: The results area qtilekettjfig'of the.chureb and aft ia* creased interest will fallow. Monitor says (Srafit BeH* „ 38 feom California that be took dibber with Clark Mice afld wife ope day last week, having- a very enjoy* able Vistt. fie praises Mr, Itice's wife and possessions Very highly, , It is assumed that Kossuth county's IfviHgtott is referred to in this item from the Emmetsbtirg Democrat: Miss Ahna Miller left the last of the week for Irvlngton, where she will visit her sister for a short time. The Blue Earth Post says the sash and door factory of Schneider & Co. is just completing an altar for the Cath* Ollc church in Bancroft, Iowa, that eclipses anything they have yet accomplished in style and workmanship. A Fenton reporter tells the Whltte- more Champion that Rev. Southwell, who held quarterly meetings last week "seems to be a very spicy talker, keeping his heare'rs amused most of the time. A number came from Burt and Forsy the." AT IOWA PITY. There is a marked reaction in all the colleges towards old standards of culture. Classical courses of study, literary skill and debate are nil popular. For the first time in the history of the state university an ex- temporanious debate was made part of the commencement program last week. Dr. Pickard offered prizes and four students appeared to|debate on 24 hours' notice whether this country should re-establish the old government bank of Alexander Hamilton. The excellence of the speeches was very remarkable. During the past year the state university debaters have defeated those of tbe university of Minnesota and also those of tbe Chicago university by unanimous de cisions of the Judges. The literary societies are doing more work and are supplanting the secret fraternities which, with the exception of the new one to which only the 35 per cent, of the graduates passing the highest examinations are admissible, are a curse to colleges. Athletics also is being put in tbe background, that is professional athletics. A handsome ball park and athletic ground is convenient to the university, and the Y. M. C. A. building • is fully equipped with baths and appliances. But this year the university team was not allowed to go to the inter-collegiate meet at Marshalltown because of an attempt to profit by a technical complaint against Iowa college athletes. The board of regents en dorsed the stand taken by the faculty, passed resolutions providing for regulating athletics, and as Supt. Sabin sagely added urged the faculty "to regulate them." dflrlag the flast $*«*, SB i«iie*t[dw1l td mty 6ft«,|8it Cioifipiaitit against the untvefSlty, and that il lack of room id accbifimddate the itadem Fortanayiyffifttew yews this complaint wilt not exist.

First will cotn6 an adequate hospital for the medical department, then a building for the collegiate department not excelled !ft the west. With ef en this $375, 000 added in buildings tbe University will not have the facilities like schools have in neighboring states, tt is wonderful ttiat the scholarship at the university should compare so favorably when the equipment is So inferior. Even Nebraska pays uniformly higher salaries, and spends annually over 130,000 more on its university. Atnontf matters of local interest connected with commencement was SatnUel Mayne's attendance as examiner in the law department At tbe close he was loudly called upon for a speech and made a very happy response. This year Was the occasion of a reunion of the classes of 1886. C. B. Matson attended as a collegiate graduate of that year. Judge Wade, Who bos appeared in the Kossuth courts on several occasions, was a law graduate of 1886 and gave a' banquet at the St. James hotel to his classmates and others. Miss Elinor Gordon, who has been with Miss Safford In Sioux City several years, is now located as Unitarian pastor at Iowa City. She led tbe devotional exercises on one program Miss Minnie Morse was a visitor. She Is now a teacher In tho Sioux City schools. Her family are all living in Ithaca, N. Y. Among the law graduates was T. G. McDermott of Algona, who passed a high examination. He has not decided where he will locate. One of the six collegiate orators was Miss Ethel Charlton of Clear T,ake, daughter of Dr. Charlton. She delivered a Very thoughtful oration. Mr. and Mrs. Marsh Lumbar live in Iowa City. He is principal of the city schools aud is very successful as a teacher. pr H «* WIUB IEIGEBQBIQOP, !>. Wesley will celebrate tbe Fourth.

Why it comes at the end instead of the beginning of the year is not knpwn. Prof. Currier says that years ago at Yale the commencement came at the opening of the fall term and that graduates were compelled to return for their degrees. Now commencement universally comes at the end of the year, still called commencement, doubtless because at that time freshmen become sophomores and seniors embark on the muoh-talked-about sea of life. The program at the university has been greatly elaborated since class '80 left its boulder on the campus to mark a decade, and leave a fitting reminder of the high water mark under the old regime. It opens in June with a declamatory contest by freshmen ladies, in which this year eight competed. This occurred on Thursday evening. Friday the military companies competed in a prize drill for a banner to be carried during the year, Friday evening the time-honored graduating exercises of tho literary societies occurred. A sign of the times is a third flourishing society for the boys, Sunday afternoon the baccalaurate sermon, sure signal of beat and rain; Monday morning a class breakfast for tbe graduates of '90, at 2 o'clock class day exercises on the campus, at 4 o'clock tho governor's parade and battalion Inspection, in tho evening a class play at the opera bouse; Tuesday at 8 o'clock' the alumni business meeting and Tuesday evening at 6 o'clock tbe alumni banquet, the social event of the week; Wednesday evening tho president's reception and later the commencement bop; Thursday morning the collegiate graduation exercises. Between, along with, and behind all these, meetings of the regents and regents' committees, For two years yet tbe medics will graduate in March, then all medical and dental courses will last nine months of the year. In March last the regular school sent out 46 doctors, two ladies; tbe homeopathic school sent out 19, tbveoladies; tUe dentist graduates num bored 85, the pharmacists IT, and trained nurses two. All of these schools already rank high, but the requirement of tbo times is more thorough preparation, and instead of spending six fnonths the coming year, all beginners will spend nine, The first graduates in June now are the lawyers.

The convention organized aud began business yesterday. It was estimated that St. Louis held 75,000 strangers yesterday. The McKinley men claim 640 of the 918 votes on the first ballot. A. B. Cummins was chosen member of the national committee to succeed J. S. Clarkson, after a hard contest. J. W. Blythe of Burlington was chosen but declined to accept. The Iowa delegates instructed Senator Gear to use his influence on the resolution committee in favor of a moderate declaration. They will oppose a gold platform, and thereby voice Iowa sentiment. The annual meeilfig of the Koasutfa Coitiity Mutual IftBurmnde company, held at the court house oft Tuesday the 9th ef Jufie, was quite well attend* ed and considerable business of .im* portabce to the members was f,frtfl8«Cl i ed.- SOiha changes were trinnV Ih «>ur articles of association that serin to be expedient. One of the most, important was the changing of the duiu «r the an' tidal meeting from the, second Tuesday of JuHe lo tho second Tuesdny in *Fafl* uaryofeach year. This will simplify matters and cut off some useless ek* pense. The powers and duttes of the executive committee were also somewhat enlarged. The members by a large majority refused to limit the liability of the compaby In regard to the use of steam threshers, The members are insured just the same whether they use a steamer or horse »ower machine. It was also decided to strike out the 800 foot limit as printed in our policies and tbe result will be that your hay and grain will be insured stacked anywhere on Improved farms. The report of the secretary showed a net gain of about $110,000 In risks since June, 1895; a payment for losses of about $1,600 for the same time; that we have about 900 members, and that the total amount of risks is almost one million dollars. With a steady Increase a list of our members would almost be a directory of farmers in some portions of the county. In addition to the officers as published last week the following were selected as directors in their respective townships: Geo. S. Angus, J. G. Rawson, M. Weisbrod, John Bernhard, Levi Good, Phil. Dorweller, A. L. Belton, Ellis McWhorter, E. P. Keith, J. F. Bolenlens, A. D. Barker, Wm. Klein, G. M. Parsons. N. C. Taylor, C. A. Erlckson, E. W. Donovan.

DOXSEB, Frank Bicknell reports delegate Call as opposed to declaring for a gold standard. He snys in the Capital: Delegate Call of Algona fears the term "gold standard" would be misunderstood in his district, by being construed to mean the retirement of the silver certificates. The Chicago Tribune of Sunday had a long report about the Iowa delegation. Under the caption " Turns Down Mr. Pray" it says: When tho matter came up in the meeting today Senator Gear said that Mr. Pray bad been authorized by the executive committee of the delegation to issue the notices of assessment. Mr. Call wanted to know how that executive committee was constituted, and to adjust matters he moved that a finance commitee bo appointed from the membership of the delegation, who should have charge of raising the necessary funds and also attend to their disbursement and report to the delegation. This motion was carried without any difficulty, In fact it was the unanimous sentiment of the delegation that this should be done. The finance committee thus appointed consists of F. H. Helsell, H. W. Macomber, and Geo, W. French. The delegation then elected Col. Henderson as temporary chairman and Geo. C. Call as temporary secretary. Howard L. Hedrick of Qttumwa was elected sergeant-at-arms of the delegation, and the meeting adjourned until 2 p. m. Monday, MILITTARY MATTERS. »ow, Co).

It will be needless to add that it will be one of the best celebrations held in the county. Wesley never does anything by hillves, as her past history will show. Rodney Hill of Britt WHS a Wesley caller Monday. Mrs. S. E. Grove is visiting friends at Clarion.
