Two of the eight days of the celebration of Iowa's semicentennial of statehood at Burlington will be given over to the two leading political parties, and great interest is already being manifested in the manner of observance of the two days. It is certain that no other feature of the celebration week will surpass those on the program for these two days. Monday, Oct. 6, is to be known as republican day. Ex-President Harrison and Chauncey M. Depew will probably be the orators. Failing these there will be others of equal celebrity. Hope is not abandoned that McKlnley will be the drawing card. Thursday, Oct. 8, will be democratic day. It is an assured fact that Wm. Jennings Bryan, democratic candidate for the presidency, will deliver an address in the great coliseum. The indications are that railway facilities will be overtaxed on these two great political days to carry the crowds to Burlington. Tbe Hnlsey Case Attracts Attention. Emmetsburg Tribune: The decision of Judge Quarton in the Everingham- Halsey hay case has opened up^ several similar cases and thus an almost endless amoun,t of litigation has begun. The judge's decision gave Halsey damages, amounting to almost $9,000. On the strength of this, three other suits against Chicago commission men have been started, involving losses on over 3,000 car loads of hay. Should the supreme court sustain Judge Quarton in the case already tried there will, in all probability, be a big business in hay deals. Clarke & Cohenour will conduct these suits for Mr. Halsey. L. I,. Colby, Whiskey Peddler. L. L. Colby, tried once in Algona for peddling whiskey in Swea City, bas been back to his old haunts. The Armstrong Journal notes his presence: L. L. Colby, who is well known in Swea City, and hated more than the one who presides over the infernal regions, stirred up some excitement in that little village again one day last pfof. cUlchrlst on the Stump, Pocahofltas Record! Prof, J, C, Gilchrlst has consented ta address the people of Pooahontas on the issues of the day on Saturday Evening, Oct. 3, at the court house. This speetih will be very interesting for the reason that Prof. Gilohrist is a schoolmate of Wm. McKinley, and his speech will be more of a lecture on that great statesman. AMONG THE ADVEBTI8EBS.
