Iowa by the state central committee, it is one of the btece* of campaign literature that has permanent value. Wflui. Senator AltiSon bis &' full senatorial tef"m 6f six years ahead of him after flett March. If he declines a place in ' President McKinley's cabinet, ho oiie Gfttt cflticiae him, His position ih the senate is as much a tit-edit to Iowa as a Cabinet place would be. In convefsa- tiott with Mr. Gardner Cowles of Algona during the campaign he ex- pr'essed the opinion that there was tto call for Senators to accept cabinet places, that they could. be as readily and as acceptably filled from other sources. And yet, as the situation at present presents itself, no one in this country is so logically the man for the state or treasury department as Senator • Allison. Inter-national agreement for the use of silver is to be settled one way or the other during this administration. That is as fully apparent from the expressions of foreign writers, as it is from the declarations of Major McKinley's close friends and from the pledge of the republican, platform.' The mere attitude of the; free silver champions that the republican pledge to promote an inter-national understanding is a subterfuge, and 1 their evident intention of making the campaign of 1900 on that issue, of itself forces the matter to the front. It cannot be dodged, even if Major McKinley should desire it, which he evidently does not, and if it is to be met there is no man in the United States who has given it the study and who is so confident of success as Senator Allison. He has been identified with inter-national bimetallism . for 20 years, he is known to bimetallists the world over, he is thoroughly acquainted with the situation in every foreign country and with the government machinery necessary to set in motion to secure favorable consideration. His name is so associated with the idea that, he has practically appropriated it, as Elaine did reciprocity, ' and if it can be carried out he is not only best fitted for the undertaking, but most entitled to the honor. International bimetallism is not a fad nor passing notion. It is a safe, practical, and desirable solution of the monetary problem, It is to be settled during the coming four years. If Senator Allison is offered either the state or treasury departments, can he in view of these facts decline? NEWS AND COMMENT. The closest friends of Maj. McKinley assert in Washington that he will take preliminary steps toward the negotiation of an international treaty upon the subject of bimetallism before his administration is one month old. • -s- -5- -*- Tbe St. Louis Globe-Democrat has figured out about Bryan's tour: He traveled nearly 19,000 miles and made 600 speeches, containing about 875,000 words, in 447 towns and cities of 27 different states, to audiences aggregating over 2,000,000 persons. Nothing equal to this in the way of personal effort was ever before known in our politics, or in the politics of any other country. -i- -J- -^ A rumor is again afloat that there is to be a fight on the whole new code this winter, It is gfven out that Senators Healy, Cheshire, Garst, Waterman, and * other leaders in the upper house, have been diligently investigating the • matter since adjournment last spring, and that they are prepared to explode a bomb early in the '»' session. It is claimed that they will present an analysis of the new code, in comparison with the old laws, that will * prove clearly that the corporation influences have dominated the whole work of revision in their own Interests. •*• -f- -f- Sam, Clark is back at the work an all wise providence specially intended for b4m.

He went fishing with the major back in Ohio once, and a dollar was up for the man Who got the first fish. As was to be expected McKinley soon landed a fine bass and got the dollar. He looked at it a I moment and then handed it to the darkey who had skirmished around for the grub Worms, saying, "HereBud, this is yours, for you furnished the halt." -f- -i- -s- That fall at Burlington was a serious thing 'for Lafe Young. He Was in his office Saturday for the first time in four weeks. •4- -f- -4- The Fort Dodge Post, silverite, tells this on Dolliver! "Now comes my fit again I" • So Mr. Dolliver said as he went home in the gloaming. His friend asked, "Do you have fits often?" "No," said he, "they come all at once. I have now 167, 649 applications for postofflces in this district and the election was only two days ago." , • ' ' •*••*-••+•".. The Capital announces that Doc. Hutchins is candidate for chief clerk of the senate again, Gib Pray is candidate for revenue collector of this district, and that H. G. McMillen is candidate for United States attorney in M. D. O'Connell's place. -i- •*- -4- The Carroll Herald says: "Grover Cleveland will pass into history as one of the great presidents of the United States." That depends upon who writes the history. Cleveland's present administration from his appointment of Gresham to the cabinet down through his Hawaiian policy, tariff policy, - pension vetoes, silver policy, and bond sales comes pretty close to the low water mark of' American statesmanship. Cleveland is a man who lacks both height and breadth intellectually. He has a certain amount of admirable force, and a splendid egotism. But these qualities often characterize small men. ALLISON AND THE CABINET. Senator Allison-has still seven years to serve in the senate. Would he give up a congenial task like that for four years of turmoil in the cabinet? -T- -J- -I- Curtis in the Chicago Record: Senator Allison is the latest nominee for secretary of state. The narticular reason assigned for his selection is that he is the most consistent bimetallist in the republican party. It is argued that his appointment at the head of the cabinet would not only balance the selection of a goldbug as secretary of the treasurer, but be equivalent to an assurance that the McKinley administration would make every effort In its power to secure an international agreement for the recognition of sliver as money. No man Is better equipped for any position he may be willing to accept, and his appointment would insure a safe, wise, and conservative administration of the perplexing foreign relations of the government. • I ' -S- -TT •*• • Geo. E. Roberts in Fort Dodge M_es- senger; There Is little reason to doubt that Senator Allison can be the next secretary of the treasury if he wants to, but it is almost as certain that he would rather serve the six years' term in the senate which be-: gins next March. If he is out of the count Hon.'A. B. Cummins, the leader of the Des Moines bar, is a probable 'selection for attorney general or possibly secretary of the Interior, The choice of Mr. Cummins would be a safe and judicious one,, and eminently satisfactory to lovvans, •f- •*• T- Secretary of State MoFarland says in aDubuque interview: The Iowa delegation at the St. Louis convention had received assurances from Major McKlnley's representatives that it would please him to have Senator Allison's counsel In the cabinet. Among the closest friends at home the impression prevails that Mr. Allison would much prefer to close his career with his term In the senate, beginning next March, but that should he be offered a cabinet position, a sense of his obligation to his loyal friends in Iowa plight constrain him to accept it, H- -i- -f- Lafe Young in the Capital: Senator Allison can have a place }n the cabinet if he wants it. Of this there is no doubt. But it is doubtful about his accepting the place. •*•-*-•*• A Washington special is to this ef* feet: Allison was one of the few candidates who did not attack the MoKlnJey fprpes openly before the convention, and the McKinley men recognize him as a legitimate favorite SPR. Beside? all this Senator AUlspn was a member of the Brussels cpnferen.ce, and his appointment would be »n eaynest pf the desire pf the admjnlstra- tipn. to. secure the international agreement to which Jhe party pledged, itself at St. w tfrfe Palo Alto county Voted fof ft poor house.

Charlie Slagle has quit the Whitte* more station. The Champion says the Milwaukee is over-working its men and that Charlie ought to have been retained. Spencer News: Geo. E. Clarke of Algona, one of northern Iowa's most prominent attorneys, spent a couple of days in Spencer the first of the week, looking after legal business, Robt. F. Carson, son of one of Iowa City's best known and wealthiest citizens was married at Emmetsburg Thursday to Rev. Jackson's daughter. Hayes Carson acted as best man. John B. Koehne went from Algona to Mason City, The Gazette says his opening lecture more than satisfied the expectations of the • minister's club, under whose auspices the course is now being given to the public. The Democrat says Harry Wilson will run his feed store at Emmetsburg and may subsequently engage in other business. It adds: Harry has always been a hustler and many will regret that he is no longer connected with the Model mills. Thos. Gray's fine home in Wesley is finished. It is one of the most complete in the county. It is 44 by 33 feet, floors all hard wood, etc. The Reporter praises Jas. Deveraux of Algona for the stone work and Chas. Rosewall for the papering and painting. • . The Sheldon Mail pays this compliment to the sister of Mrs. W. W. Johnson, formerly of Algona: Miss Seckerson's success as superintendent of schools is the rightful source of much pride to herself, and exceedingly gratifying to the estimable lady's numerous friends David Grier, our own former placid and peaceful David, writes to his brother silverites of Emmetsburg and says, " Let your motto and watchword be 'Truth Resurgam.' " We commend this to Bro. Ryan and would suggest that he put it on that Mexican letter. "Truth Resurgam" is good. It beats 16 to 1 out of sight. Mrs. Geo. E. Reed, widow of Algona's one time normal school professor, tried a peculiar case at Spencer last week. She is county superintendent and a teacher was up for using language in the political campaign that would disqualify him from teaching. It was a red hot trial, but she was able to .manage the scales of justice so that they balanced. PEED rOBGOT TO EESPOND. Bniley Tells a Yarn on Fred Anderson of Wesley. The Sunday before election Rev. Plummer preached at Wesley in behalf of the prohibition ticket. Bailey tells a yarn about the opening prayer, before the audience got the drift of the proceedings: The minister prayed for all the candidates and was greeted with vociferous amens from Fred Anderson, a devoted churchman and member ,of the flock, but when the reverend gentleman got warmed up to the subject and began to confine his supplications more especially to the prohibition ticket there was a great calm in Anderson's apartment in the amen corner, The silence there was simply sublime, and were it not for tha fact that Anderson don't want to talk anyhow since election, he might be persuaded yet to speak of the female mamma sheep as a dam and possibly allow it to be spelled with an n, SCHOOL HOUSES FOB CHURCHES, State Supt.

U.—To the Editor: As there has been so much said through the papers in regard to that "church quarrel" I will send you a copy of a letter which I received from Henry Sabin, the superintendent of public instruction, that you can see there are different opinions in regard to this matter, which you will be at liberty to publish if you please, The Methodist church members are not thoroughly posted in school laws, generally, I think, They would do well to procure a copy of school laws and study it instead of quarrelling with the world's people, and would certainly manifest a more Christian spirit, I am sure, I am respectfully yours, 0, A.

AN EVENING OF MUSIC. • The Coming: of the Temple Quartette Will Be the Event ot the Season in Music Circles. • The famous Temple quartette of Bos* ton will sing in Algona Tuesday evening, Dec. 1. It is the finest male quartette in the United States. The following from the Des Moines News is but a sample of press notices in. the large cities of Iowa: "The standing room was at a premium last night, The popularity of the lecture course is certainly fixed. On this occasion the Temple Male quartette took the immense audience by storm, and in return were stormed into such frequent encores that their repertoire and physical strength were severely taxed. The quartette was here last season, and scored a complete victory. How any- body.could find fault with their, work is a query hard to answer. Such an exquisite combination of male voices as the Temple quartette cannot be ad-: versely criticised." This quartette has cost more to secure than many opera companies. It is not a city church choir. It is a company organized for travel. Other and fuller notices will appear prior to their visit. All music lovers should plan to attend. At the opera-house, Dec. 1, 50 cents admission to all but season ticket holders. Season tickets for the three entertainments, $1. FAKMEKS FOB BIMETALLISM. National Farmers' Congress .Adopts Vigorous Resolutions. A big silver discussion was one of the features of the Farmers' National congress at Indianapolis last week. The free coinage men were beaten by a vote of 10 to 1 in favor of the following resolutions: Whereas, The consensus of opinion of the people of the United States is that gold and silver coin, on a just parity of value, should be equally money of ultimate redemption without limit, in which this Farmers' National congress concurs, but differences of opinion exist as to the methods by which this policy can be secured; and Whereas, The recent election resulted in favor of bimetallism by international action of commercial nations; therefore, Resolved, That the Farmers' National congress urgently requests the incoming administration of the national government to speedily adopt all practicable methods to obtain the concurrence of a sufficient number of nations to secure international bimetallism with the unlimited coinage of gold and silver as equally money of ultimate redemption, and thereby to restore bimetallism prices for the world's commerce. • SANFOED DOD&E AS DAMON. The Company Which Plays Tonight is Highly Spoken of—Knights of Pythias Interested. The Sanford Dodge company, which plays Damon and Pythias tonight at the Call Opera house was in Ottumwa Wednesday, Nov. 4. The Daily Courier says in part: Sanford Dodge truly merits ''his title "Eminent Tragedian"—his rendition of the character of "Damon" being highly artistic, as shown by his performance last night at the Grand. Although the attention of the vast audience was at nearly all times distracted from the tragedy of 2,200 years ago, nevertheless at the moment when the genius of the actors was displayed most superbly, the great throng was held spellbound and the only way in which they could express their appreciation was by their spontaneous applause, Claude Soares as Pythias, Miss Jennie Dailey as Calanthe, Miss Mamie Ivel as Hermion, were all magnificent support for the tragedian. • The finest scenes were where were portrayed the heartbreaking struggle between the love for wife and home, and the love for the friend.

The plants are frequently ffl vated apart under oiled paper L^ nrl flia fcam-.1l i« »«^^._i.rTf l i r ameS Geo. fi. Clarke has taken a new .turn in the controversy over the clouds put on the swamp land titles in Kossuth. It is difficult to see how the owners Of these shadowy interests can get out of the net he has spread, and longer evade the Iowa law. He has begun two suits to quiet title. ' If the plan works it will end the attempt to mulct the owners of about 200 forties of a dollar an acre. Readers of THE UPPER DES MOINES will recall the history of the whole controversy, The old American Emigrant company sold the swamp lands to the settlers and gave warranty deeds. But owing to some litigation the county had with it, it did not cherish kindly feelings, and when it finally failed up it deeded all its interests in the county to James Callanan and Jas. C. -Savory, and gave a deed which included every piece ol land it had ever owned. The deed, ol course, conveyed nothing as against the previous purchasers, but put cloud on their titles that had to be removed in court or by quit claim deed. It would cost about $60 to get title quieted in court, and Callanan & Savery would quitclaim for $40 or less. Many paid the mulct and got quit claims, but others refused to be bled About this time it was proposed to ge a law enacted to cover this and like cases, and the statute provides .that where any man puts a cloud on lane titles and refuses to quit claim free' o cost on request that he shall be ad judged in court to pay all costs and an attorney's fee, thereby relieving the owner from any expense in the suit But Callanan was too clever for this statute. He transferred all of th lands to a New York man, Waterman and the law is that in a suit against non-resident a personal judgment can not be obtained unless he appears There was no way to get a judgmen against Waterman for the costs and attorney's fee provided for in th statute, and the situation was exaotl; as before. It is this situation whici Mr. Clarke has devised a scheme relieve. The new suits contain a clause claim ing damages for slander of title. A man can slander a land title as readil; as he can a person's reputation, and in such cases the court will issue an attachment on the land. Mr. Clark has attached Waterman's interest in all the land in the county to cover th damages in the two suits he ha brought. If Waterman does no appear to defend the whole thing wil be levied on and sold to satisfy th judgment. If he does appear a"ni defend then subject to the lowi statute. There are about 200 fortie of land in the county in which h claims an interest, which at $40 apiec for quit claim deeds will net him i neat sum, if this suit does not end th game. It will keep him guessing what to do this time. ' A $3,000 STALLION CASE. The big suit against Hugh an Charlie Bronson of Seneca for $3,20 for a stallion bought of El wood o Illinois in 1886 was the only case triei at Fort Dodge in federal court. Th Bronson boys bought the horse fo $2,200. In two years they returne him claiming that he was no good an not as warranted. El wood sued fo the purchase price and interest. M. F Healey was Elwood's attorney am A. C. Parker represented the Bron sons. Theo. Chrlschilles and G. F Peek were on the jury. The verdic was for $1,160 for Elwood, It seem that the Bronsons did not return th horse as soon as they should to com within the warrant, and that he wa not in as good condition as when h was bought, J, W. Wadsworth, Geo Holloway, Marsh Stephens, and a ha] dozen others were down as witnesses Mr.. Parker says it is not settle whether an appeal will be taken o not. ENJOINING AN ELEVATOR. Judge Quarton tried an interestini injunction case Saturday. He grantei the injunction to restrain Will Bepde of Spencer from erecting an elevate at that place. It seems that Behde sold out his interest in the elevator along the Milwaukee to Messrs. Phelp andTrundell, The contract was tha he should not again engage in th business at points where tne campany' elevators were located, He ha secured ground from the Milwauke and will build at Spencer, however unless a permanent injunction i granted, Clarke & Cohenour appeare forPhelps and TrundelJ and A.'

Some weeks ago THE UPPER DES MOINES noted the death of a drunken man at West Bend, who had his head cut off by a passing train on the Bur. ington road. He was buried and a bill for about $40 was presented to tha county supervisors' for the coffin and burial costs. The board laid the matter- over, thinking that it was the dutv of the railway company to care for him It is a curious question. A man who kills a horse or other animal in the liighway, must remove and 'bury it The railway is a public highway. Is the company in like manner responsible for a man killed on its right of wav by its trains? - * CHAIRMAN CHUBB SPEAKS. At the close of the board meeting which is the last at which Mr. Chubb will take active part, the chairman made a few remarks on the work of the past four years, and in conclusion thanked his brother members for the uniform courtesy that had been shown him. It was a very, pleasant little speech, and the board thanked Mr, Chubb in turn for the pleasant rela- tins he had assisted in maintaining. SIX CENTS TO THE VOTE. The judges of election, five to a precinct, cost for Kossuth county $772.15. The ballots cost $173.60. The envelopes for the returns, etc., cost $125. Returning the poll books, at $4 a precinct, is $132. This is a total of $1,202.75, to which is still to be added the cost of room rent and of distributing the official ballots. ,An election in Kossuth costs nearly $1,300, or about six cents to the voter. LONG HOURS COUNTING BALLOTS. Judges of election get 25 cents an hour. Some of them get in long hours,, at that rate. In several townships they charge $5.50, which would be 22 hours, According to that they must have worked at counting returns until 5 o'clock in the morning. In a great many precincts the charge is for from 18 to 21 -hours work, and it is noticable that in many cases the charge is lowest where the number of ballots handled was greatest. It is curious to look over the charges: .
