Ff\RISH. Xde, Tribune AT IRVINGTON, IOWA. Podornwskie, a Polander aged 28 years, was drowned near Forest City a week ago under very unfortunate circumstances. On Sunday .afternoon he went to the swimming hole in the pasture of F. N. ^Pltkin, about a mile below town, In company with a half- dozen of the men of his gang, sotne expert swimmers. They found the US' ual number of boys and young men in the water and about the bank and joined those who were In bathing. It developed later that Podornwskle was unable to swim, but as no: particular attention was paid to him or his party it is not definitely known bow tie got into the deep water—which covers a space probably thirty feet wide and sixty feet in length to a depth of perhaps eight feet—though the impression prevails that he was carried out on the back of one of his friends In the effort to teach him to swim and when the deep place was reached was shaken from his support with the advice to learn to go alone. He began to go down, but of all present only one, Axel Lllgenberg, went to his assistance. One arranged to help, but after Axel caught hold of the Pole he flunked and Axel was nearly drawn down himself. Podornswkle's heart was beating when he was taken out, but no effort to rescuscltate him availed. The public condemnation of the men who deserted him after getting him out is very severe. JJolliver'B Campaign. Special from Jefferson to the Register: J. B. Romans of Denison will probably be the opponent of J. P. Dol- llver in the congressional race. Mr. Romans is a wealthy hardware man and has been a life-long republican, but he has also been a steadfast advocate of the free coinage of silver. It appears to be settled beyond dispute that he will be nominated by the democrats and endorsed by the populists. While the Tenth district has eriven Mr. Dolllver as high a majority as 5,000, it is asserted that' there are more than 2,500 republicans in the district who favor free silver and who will vote for Romans. If this is the base and the sound money democrats can be held in line for Romans, the latter will ba elected. On the other hand, the republicans assert that if this scheme is well understood the democrats who are for sound money will rally to the support of Mr. Dolliver and the loss of free silver republicans will be fully compensated in gains of democrats. Of course, it' is impossible to form anything like an accurate estimate at this time of the extent of the disaffection in the republican or democratic ranks upon the financial question, but your correspondent has positive knowledge that there are a number of prominent and influential democrats In this city who have stated In so many words that as between Dolllver and Romans they will unhesitatingly support Dolllver, and that sound money democrats will do the same. Free ^liver republicans are more conservative, and while holding fast to their convictions, they do not say they will bolt the nomination. The fact is undeniable that in this (Greene) county there are a large number of good republicans who are on the fence upon the question of finance. They want light. Congressman Dolliver will speak here on the afternoon of July 29, and an effort will be made to get these weak-kneed voters out to hear the truth expounded, To Begin With AlRono. Wesley Reporter; C, P. Hanson, a young man of a religious turn of mind, made us a call last Monday and had some scripture texts printed. These be said he was going to use in Algona. He intends organizing a Salvation Army corps there and attacking the powers of darkness. As a starting point the young man couldn't choose a better place to begin operations, The North Kossuth Fair, The North Kossuth association meets Friday to decide about holding a fair this fall.

He was taken before 'Squire Clarke and asked for time to consider and reflect. At 1 o'clock he came In ahd asked for a continuance until today at 2 o'clock when a hearing; will be had, He claims he bought the trousers .of Durdall and that Jo. Stell, then at Germania, could identify them. Mr. Williams on the other hand says there is no question about the matter. The trial will toll. Peter Ewtng, who lives southeast of Bancroft two miles, wants a couple who came out to his place to shoot guns about his windows, disturb his rest, retard the growth of his fatting hogs, and do other mischief, bound over to meet the grand jury. 'Squire Raymond went up Saturday and one of the men was held by 'Squire Austin. Then they all adjourned to the street and had a set-to under rules not laid down by Blackstone, Ewln getting tousled somewhat, whereat 'Squire Austin fined them all. Sheriff Samson got a telegram Monday stating that Tony Little and John Flanders had been caught at Hull. He went for them yesterday morning. They are the ones who poked the register out of the floor in the sheriff's room and so escaped from jail before they had a hearing on the charge of being drunk and disorderly. An impression exists that breaking jail is an indictable offense, in which case the boys will have a term at Anaraosa ahead of them. It is time respect for our jail was inculcated in one way if it cannot be in another. Three traveling musicians were on the streets Friday. After making the air melodious up town they thought they would take in the delights of a boat ride and fishing trip on the Des Moines. They accordingly loosened Guy Taylor's boat in some way and set forth. Guy has been troubled for some time with people borrowing the boat without leave and he decided to make an example of the trio, who were arrested and sentenced to a day in jail. Their instruments were attache'd to pay costs, but they were finally allowed to take a broken down guitar and hie forth to Emmetsburg to see if they could sing enough out of the people there to get the rest of the outfit "out of soak." They have not yet reported. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Miss Zoa Wartman has gone to Duluth to visit. Mrs. Henry Wadsworth is hoine from her Wisconsin visit.
