The wind was blowing so that att open- all? meeting Was sure to be unsatisfactory, la the house those who did get in heard every word of the best speech Mr. Dolliver has ever made in Algona. He spoke two hours and a half, wettt-into the merits of the financial question fully even to the discussion of prices, a,nd still invested the whole with an interest which held people standing in the aisles without weariness. It was a plain, practical, thdrough, statesmanlike discussion of the money' question, He ctxlled no names, imputed no bad motives, in* dulged in no claptrap, made no questionable claims, simply took acknowledged statistics and proved as conclusively as a proposition in mathematics is proved that the contention of the free silver men is unfounded in fact, and without merit as a release from the present period of depression. We believe that no speech that has been made by .a republican leader anywhere is abler than Congressman Dolliver is making, and in manner, in good humor, in oratory, no man on the stump is his superior. THE UPPER DES MOINES will attempt no analysis. Early in October Mr. Dolliver will be heard over the county. It is enough to assure our readers that ho will "absolutely demolish the whole foundation of the frne silver claims wherever he speaks. Dolllver's District. Those who are speculating on the chances J. B. Romans has to overcome this fall will be interested in the: vote of the Tenth district counties last year.

Mr. Dolliver will be elected by over 5,000 majority. Sound Money Democrats. ' Theo. Chrisehilles, C. E. Heise, and Philip Dorweiler represented Kossuth •county at the democratic sound money •convention at Des Moines. Mr. Chris- chilles was chosen alternate to the national convention at Indianapolis and started yesterday to attend. All three .of these men have lived in Kossuth .during the years the free silver men claim have been disastrous, and probably no three in the county better illustrate the folly of the claim. Mr. Dorweiler came in the later 60's and the *' Dorweiler Settlement" was made over across the mud flat, when half the year nothing but a crane could go from Whittemore to West Bend, and when Algona was the only market. In 1870 Mr. Heise opened his little barber shop and in 1871 Mr, ChriBohilles opened his store in the little building which stood at the corner of Call and Thorington streets, occupying the half or quarter story over head for living apartments, Without any adventitious aids, by industry, economy, and close attention to business, each of these men has made a notable success, Their presence in Des Moines was not their only protest against the nonsense that is being talked about the calamity of the past 25 years. Their whole business career is a more conspicuous protest, known to all the early settlers of the county. Local Political Notes. West Bend has a sound money club with 121 members. Postmaster Giddings is said to be the only free silver man in Wesley. Capt, Karburg of St. Jjoui's speaks in Wbittemore Saturday afternoon and in Wesley Saturday evening in German. Dr. Charlton of Clear Lake is a lifelong democrat, but while in Algona last week he said he should vote for Me- iftnley. ' Ex-Supervisor Nate Studer of Prairie was in fop Polliver's speech, He says the issue tins fall is not a matter of politics but of business, He wants a found and safe money, AND SO THEY_WE_RE MARRIED, A Jluntvwny Buffalo Center COMpJo Hie to AlKoim tor n License and nro Tied Together. Ed. Burk of Buffalo Center and Miss Mamie Ward of Lawler have been sparking, much to the discontent and annoyance of Miss Word's sister and brother-in-law, the O'Byne family, where she was visiting. Cupid was too much for the O'Byne's, however, as he 1ms been for so many other obdurate relatives in the world, even up to the Vnnderbuilt degree. The story is graphically told by the Tribune. The O'Bynes attempted to use force, but Burk was bold, and carried away the fair Ophelia, hatless and wrapless, in the very face of the enemy and drove to Algona. Saturday afternoon and secured a license to wed. lie turn ing to Buffalo Center about 4 o'clock Sunday morning he woke 'Squire Humm and requested him to tie the mystic knot. But the 'squire, as he regretfully viewed the vanishing $1.60 marriage fee, told the hapless couple that he didn't have jurisdiction over a Kossuth county license, and in the cold gray dawn they wandered out, while he again sought soft repose in his downy, and took his regular Sunday morning snooze. Burk no sooner showed upon the streets than he was arrested, and held to appear Monday before Judge Flynn. But the county attorney did not come on time, and Burk got tired of waiting, and Officer Bohls, who had him in charge, also got tired—and thirsty, which was more to the point, for when Burk proposed to his majesty that if he would wait in the hotel he (Burk) would go and get him a glass of beer, he succumbed and let Burk go. Burk was gone a half hour and Bohla had nothing to think about but his thirst and it grew until he went out to look for Burk and the beer, when he found nothing but buggy tracks leading up to the'place where the fair lady love was stopping, and from there out into the west. The officers were too late. They met Burk and his bride coming back to town legally tied. They had been to Germnnia, got their license before a competent tribunal, and were already well started on the sea of matrimony. The county attorney had nothing to prosecute for, and, as the Tribune sagely says, thus ended a chapter of romance in real life on the borders of the classic Buffalo Forks. A $2,800 interest in a good-paying business to exchange for real estate in Kossuth county. Inquire of Doxsee & Foster. TRY our new flour. Grove & Son. Farm Loans at 0 per Cent.

GALBRAITH & Co. , jap?trpog went to the with the band pd wag given a w»i ratify Bell of Garfleld, was }n Ateona two Mends off who, 's Fair, CREAM Aaron Rutherford died Monday aft* ernoon at 2:30 o'clock after a lihger- ing Illness of six years' duration, from which, however, he Was confliied to his bed only during the past week. It was ah affection of the bladder, and during the latter stages was not painful. His strength gradually failed him and he faded away as a dandle flickers out. His mind was clear to Within a half hour of his death. The funeral will be held today at 2:30 o'clock. Mr. Rutherford was born near Bel^ fast, Ireland, April 6, 1826, and was just past 70 years. He was descended from a long line of Presbyterian ministers, in direct line from Samuel Rutherford, the great Scotch preacher of the reformation. His father Was a minister and three of his brothers entered the ministry. He himself was educated in Belfast college for the ministry and to his dying day could road his bible in Greek, Hebrew or Latin, with ease. But evicting ton- ants became a custom as ho came to young manhood, and his father was among the victims. He became a vigorous rack rent agitator, and soon broke loose and sailed for America, landing in 1847. Ho Went'to Cincinnati, spent two winters in New Orleans, and for years before the war travelled extensively over the United States. Then he settled in New York and engaged in the meat packing business He was in his day considered the bes' salesman of dressed meats in- New York. Ho built a $150,000 meat pack ing house on Fourteenth street, tine killed 1,000 hogs a day, but it was jus as he was getting well established tha the city authorities declared his pack ing house a nuisance, which mude i worthless, and the trouble and worrj of those years severely threatened hi health. It was on account of the ad vice of the ablest physicians of the city to go oUt and live on a farm and quit business that he came to Kossuth Mr. Rutherford reached Algona ii 1871. His idea, inherited in Ireland of owning land had led him years be fore to buy some government land a $1.25 an acre. It proved to be a hal section in Sherman 'township and half section in Rlverdale. He cam out once during the war to look at it but did not get beyond Fort Dodge. In 1871 he came with his family,-but returned that winter and again engaged in business in the city. But his health again failed and the following summer he came to stay. Since then he has rarely left the county. In 1881 he came to town and bought the old Harrison house, and until lately kept a hotel known to the travelling public far and near. He was n'tsver in his life more contented than on the farm and in his hotel. He enjoyed his later life. While in New York he was a director in the Bull's Head bank, prominent in city politics, the owner of a $10,000 home, and a man known in all the commercial centers. But on his Riverdale farm, pioneering in the establishment of dairying as a county industry, he was fully as contented, and to his dying day never complained nor expressed a wish to return to city life. He was a cousin of the**great story writer, Captain Mayne Ried, and the latter lived at. the Rutherford home in the city one winter, doing some of his best literary work there. The second son was named after this cousin and was known, in Algona as Maynie, Mr. Rutherford was short, crisp, prompt and decided in everything he did. People often thought him blunt and gruff. But those who knew him knew of the kindly heart behind, of the bright intelligence and of the broad tolerance of the man. No one could be more intense in his convictions than'he was in holding to every tenet of the Presbyterian creed, and yet he met on even terms with Catholic and Episcopalian, Methodist and unbeliever, Next to his religious creed came his belief in the mission of the democratic party. And yet many of the republican politicians of the state enjoyed, stopping at his hotel simply to discuss with him, He was intolerant only of stupidity. That he made short work with wherever he found it. His mind was original, his speech pictured his thought. His sentences were as. rugged as Scotch granite and sparkled with originality. It was a constant enjoyment to one who understood him to engage him in conversation, The writer was for a year a guest at his table, It is a pleasure to recall the, many .enjoyable h'oure tb,at he enlivened,'the cheerful courage he every day displayed .'in ignoring his growing infirmities, the hopeful philosophy, which in all the trials and vicisjtudes of an eventful life, he had cherished to sustain and comfort his old age. Four children remain, with Mrs, Rutherford to mourn his loss, The kindly offices of the whole community will be theirs to command in their bereavement. Their solace will be that he leaves a name which is synony^ moqs with integrity in business, with independence and honesty in though and conviction, with purity and man Uness in public and. private life, He had rounded out bis three score years and ten. His work was fimsh.ed. JBJs death crowns a life of usefulness and good service. THE I9W4JAT RATE. An AJgowa Subscriber of tfte Stat Jiegister yyrites a Jitter.

You save the price of a new stove in a few years in saving the fuel that goes to waste when you persist in using an old stove after it is worn out. Did you ever think of this ? There are stoves that use more fuel than others in doing the same work. the Buck's is a fuel saver and a perfect baker. Of the large v- nttrhber • of Steel Ranges that we have sold during the past year there has been nothing but words ol highest praise from those who have used them. There is but one grade of Buck's Steel Range and that is the best that is possible for human skill to make. Our line of steel ranges and cast stoves is complete, and a'finer line has never been shown in the city. If you are contemplating buying any kind of a stove it will pay you to look at our stock. C.
