HALSET BEATS EVEBINGHAM. .Tudfie Qunrton Decides the Much Discussed Hay Case — Htilsey Gets About $9,OOO. Judge Quarton has decided the Hal- Bey-Everingham hay case. He rules against the Chicago commission man on the two important points. He holds that Everingham cannot, set up a claim for commissions against HaAsey, which he did not report at the time of sale. He holds the same as : to cartage fees. The two items will amount to $8,000. ; Everingham had received 1,200 cars of hay from Halsey, had reported the sale of them at about $20 a car less than he actually received, and came in on the trial to claim that the $20 represented commissions paid out, cartage, and other costs, none of' which had been reported. This method he claimed to be a custom with Chicago commission men. Judge Quarton over- rules'hira on all but one claim and holds that it is against public policy to permit commission men to sell at a higher figure than they report to the .shipper, take out commissions and cartage they do not report, and conduct a blind business of that kind, even though it may be customary in Chicago. .The judgment for wrongful attachment on Halsey 's establishment at West Bend, interest, etc., will swell the total against the Chicago man to $9,000, This is a great victory for Clarke & Cohenour, and a decision of great interest to shippers. The case will doubtless be appealed. THREE LIKE OASES BEGUN. The decision in this Everingham case is only the beginning in three suits. Clarke & Cohenour have begun three other suits for Halsey against Chicago commission men for damages. T. D. Randall & Co. have handled over 2,000 cars of Halsey 's hay, and Wanzer & t Co. over 1,000 more. A third qom- . mission house is involved. Petitions are already filed and the cases will be pressed for trial. The decisi.on in this case may, if sustained, open up the biggest litigation against commission men ever begun. Business Announcement. Thos. F. Cooke announces that on Sept, 21, 1896, he will open offices in Algona for the transaction of a general land and real estate loan business. His personal attention will be given to the purchase, sale, and management of farms, wild lands, investment in prime real estate securities, making real estate loans, examination of abstracts pf title, settlement pf estates, and the drawing of deeds, mortgages, and other legal papers. The same careful at' tention will be given to any interests entrusted to his care as in the past. Fees reasonable in keeping with the times.

The display made there of agricultural products, ' stock, etc., furnishes an object lesson for the farmer, a veritable experiment station, where neighbor may see the work of neighbor, and take advantage of the experiment of one another, and thus improve their work. It also furnishes amusement, a chance to take a day off. and visit, and bo entertained and amused. It pays people of all classes and trades to go to the county fair and see what other people are doing in various lines that are always there represented. BURNS has a flne line of now stoves, and none better are made. Prices are right — as low as the lowest.

He Say§ those Countries Which Are 6rt a Silver feasis Have No'Gold in Circulation. MattyAlgotiians will fetttembei' S. E. Ninde. He came up from Oskaloosa occasionally to visit his sister, Mrs. G. P t Doi'land, He hfed thett trav^ elled all over the world, and has been lii a business which has kept him id foreign lands much of the time since. As a young man he engaged in partnership with a photogi-apber for the production of stereoscopic views, his part being to establish and manage agencies for the sale. He mode a remarkable success of it and after cahVasslng the United States extended his operations abroad, until now there is no land where his viuws are not taken and sold, and he has accumulated a fortune. He is now in Oskaloosa at his old home, and the Herald asks him about the lands which have the silver standard. Some of his answers are portibent and of value: I have boon in the silver using countries of South America, Central American states,- China, Japan, East Indies, Siam, India, Ceylon, and the east const of Africa. I have boon traveling and doing business in all those countries for many years. What is the effect of the free coinage silver in these countries 1 ! 1 Do they use any gold? There is absolutely no gold In actual circulation in any country in the world that coins silver freely and without limit. The experience has boon uniform that if the mints are opened lo free coinage of both gold and silver at less than the commercial ratio, the silver always drives all the gold out of circulation. I know, personally, that there is not a free coinage country on earth that uses a dollar of gold in its circulation. Any gold that la coined is simply stored away and treated like bullion and is not used as money in daily business. Any gold coined is coined on private account and not used as money. A few pieces are coined usually by the mints of these countries from year to year just as we coined some gold and silver durin-* the war, but it is not used in their circulation. The laboring men in this country are much interested in the effect of the silver standard; what is your observation and experience on that subject so far as it would affect their wages? There is no silver standard country that I have traveled in where laborers get one-fourth the wages that they do in the United States. Wages have not increased except in a very few instances in those countries, and those advanced have been but slight. Ordinary laborers' • wages baye not increased in any silver country in which I have traveled. Money will buy less of everything that is imported, but buys the same amount of labor that it always did. The silver standard is working an oppression upon the laboring men of every country where it is in ur-e. If we should have free silver in the United States, a laboring man who is getting $1.50 a clay must get $2.75 lo $3.00 a day in order to maintain his old wages, and the working man will readily understand how difficult it is to get his wages substantially doubled. What is your opinion as to the addition of the United States to the free coinage nations, as affecting the value of silver? There are about nine hundred millions of people now using the silver standard; I don't believe that adding sixty to seventy millions more would advance silver even 20 per cent. The silver mine owners evidently think it would cause some advance, and are willing to throw this country upon a silver standard in hopes of even a slight advance in the price of their silver. It certainly would not go to a par in gold. not be a good thing fou us to accept the silver standard anyway? Would we not find it fully as convenient as our present system, and after being adopted would any inconvenience in the conduct of business result? All countries in the world, whether on a gold or silver standard, do a large foreign business. Our foreign exports and imports are over $1,500,000,000. To this must be added the vast business done in our securities. And all foreign exchanges, even between silver countries are usually measured in gold. A draft drawn in Japan to be used in Mexico, is drawn in gold; it .is paid for in silver in the one country and cashed in silver in the other, but it is drawn in gold and measured by the gold standard, i AH silver countries, in transacting business with the outside world, do their foreign business at a loss because of this standard. In buying a draft in any silver country, payable abroad, the purchaser has to pay first the premium on gold or discount the silver, (which' .ever way it may be figured,) next the fee for drawing draft; and in addition to that, from J to 2i per cent, of ft- pre>;: mium to cover the fluctuation of silver. If silver goes ups.bpforji^the. draft 4s" puid, the bank makes « profit; if silver goes down they have charged enough to cover the loss, This operates as a tax on all their foreign business, pang' ing from 1 to 2i per pent. People wh'o ave not engaged in foreign trade do not pay this directly, but this loss finally falls on the people generally, The actual loss thus suffered by every silver using country is enormous. Suppose, for instance, that all the foreign business pf the United States was done at a loss of from l to 2j per- cent., because of the fluctuation of the standard, ypu cap readily see that this one item alone would be something very serious. And this fact is reason enough fpp all per* sons interested in our foreign corameroa to oppose a change in the standard which would entail euoh % -loss OR the United. States.
