The extra session should be a code session." There was considerable popular indifference to an extra session for any ipurpose. It will be a great expense and comes at a time when the state treasury is not overflowing. But it seemed to be necessary, or a great part ,of the work done last winter would be wasted. It should be confined strictly to finishing up that work. 2sew measures can wait their 'time at the regular session. As Senator Funk says this Should be a code session, and it should be made^as brief as possible. JJE ITHAKEFUX.. An enterprising Chicago merchant advertised last Thursday: "Be tharik- iul that you are alive. Lots of very good .people "have been dead ;a long iime.*" What, in the last analysis, is 4oibe landed to this? What is the real .essentialfifing if it is not life iteelf? And yet ;plenty of people who !have good ^vigorous life, were lav irom •thankful last Thursday. Many who iiave plenty to eat, .a good bed to sleep in, and a healthy iamily about them, refused to look upon themselves ,as specially blest. But they were not the only unthankfuls. Probably the millionaire daughter of Singer, the sewing machine man, who was not in- •vited with her husband, a sprig of Trench nobility, to airoyal function of some kind because ;her lather was a .common -tradesman, also refused to .enjoy ,the day. The Illustrated .American of the week tells about the .struggles of the young wives in New "YorkXJityto make^the two ends of "jiouseholfl expenses-meet on an income jof S6jOOO a ye&v. Many of these un- iortunates were doubtless unhappy over ttheirjprivations. 'Thursaay -was the most unpleasant Thanksgiving day in the memory of :the oldest inhabitant. It did not mark Aje&r of universal prosperity. But ihe iphilosophers were all thankful that •Sbsy were alive. "Lots of very good -people:have been .dead along time." UNX3JRJEA6ING THE JBEV3BJOT.E. .Gen- <Grosvener of Ohio has been -very outspoken in opposing the jmssage of .the Dingley bill at the coming winter session of congress. Be favors a thorough revision of the tariff by the .new republican congress to be called in extra session after President Mo- Kinlej'*6 inauguration. The press despatches indicate that to an extent he voices President McKinley's views. In .any event it is ;not .expected now that *he Dingley bill will be put through iby the present congress and it ie expected that an extra session "Will be called by President MoKinley. If this expectation is well founded a thorough tofiff revision will be under- ttekejj;at:,jtbe very outset by the new Administration. 'Senators Allison and Sherman have ^endorsed the Dingley hill, think that any lair measure that icnce increase the revenues to .meet the expenBSE of the government is Jtesirable, without waiting to readjust tariff schedules. The passage 4)f*hel)ingley Mil would clearly he a great saieguard against possible contingencies, and ought not to interfere with tariff revieion to be entered upon leisurely and safely later on.

He is an editor born. The Carroll Herald want* THE UPPER DBS .MOINES to "give Cleveland his due." Itwoulfl take several columns for us to get in all we consider Cleveland's flue for the troubles of the past four years. If he had possessed in any considerable degree the ability his friends claim for him he could, elected as he was on such a tidal wave, have held his party together, adopted a fab 1 tariff revision, and given the country a business administration. He showed hie lack of political sagacity by taking Gresham into the cabinet hi place of some leading democrat; he showed the small motives tbat actuated him by his fool policy in Hawaii, begun to discredit President Harrison; ihe showed his subserviency -to eastern interests by his uncalled lor crusade against the Sherman law, and again by selling.bonds to a syndicate at ten per .cent, less than they were worth, as the popular sale which public sentiment compelled him to make later clearly proved; he:has since the present election proved himself a small man by proscribing officials who supported Bryan, while promoting officials who supported Palmer. How much is due to him for the firm stand : in the 'Venezuelan matter, and how much to Olney, is to be .determined. It is impossible that he should not in lour -years have done many creditable acts. But history ought to reeordthat he was elected president, absolute master of his party, that by his own individual performance ihe squarely in two over issuesnot involved in the election, .and that Jack of political sagacity, lack of real statesmanship, and overweening self-confidence are about equally marked characteristics, of iis public career. L. B. Baymond of Hampton will be candidate for department commander of the Iowa Grand Army. He is editor of the Hampton Hecoraer, was a brave soldier, and has been an ardent friend and .officer of the national guards. He 'has on several occasions visited Algona as "Inspecting officer of Company J 1 , and has always left a most favorable unpression. During the war he was part of the famous Iron Brigade and. saw service throughout the long struggle. Heisa genial and capable man and citizen, and his election as department commander would be an :honor worthily conferred. There seems to be an impression that the foolest thing of the season is the Iowa Homestead's 100,000 edition. -T- -T- -j- The Nevada Bepresentative indulges in a rather unflattering estimate of Senator Allison's abilities. It says his limitations were not BO well understood years ago as they are now. Possibly not by the general public, but certainly byGarfield andBlaine,: who entered .Congress with him, as well in 1880 when they urged him to enter the cabinet, as they ever could be. They were well understood also by Harrison in 1880 when he -urged him a second time. The fact is Allison's so-called "IhnitatioBB" grow less the more the man is known and understood. He has not been a radical and therefore has escaped considerable glory. But he has maintained with a great deal of firmness a consistent course throughout a long public career. Senator Allison's stand saved the international agreement plank to the St. Louis platform, .and our observation is that those who talk about bis "inability to act promptly and decisively" are the ones east and west who were mad because he and the Iowa delegation were so prompt and decisive. up » petition tor his return.

The Spirit. Lake Beacon says that Allison's advocacy of bimetallism is a strong argument for his selection for the cabinet: li He has been an honest advocate of this movement from its inception, and is still zealous for its success. The Beacon hopes to see the republican party make the best possible endeavor lor the establishment of an international coinage system. That portion of the platform is as binding as any other, and it is just as good republican doctrine after as before election.. It is apparent that the people of this country do not want the free coinage of silver at a.ratio of 1C to 1 without international agreement but it is entirely safe to assume tbat by an overwhelming majority our people are in favor of the largest possible use of silver consistent with established business principles. THE ATJAETJO JOE 1897. The Atlantic Monthly has .for nearly 40 years stood ;pre-eminently Jor American literature, and a very large part of the permanent contributions to American letters during that time has first appeared in its jpages. It keeps true to its long and high literary tradition, but in addition -to its purely literary features it makes announcement lor the coming season of several large magazine enterprises of more than usual 1 interest and timeliness. iFordnstance, it announces a series of direct studies of the people in the three great sections of the country. The west will be Ttaken up by :Preaerick J. Turner of the University of "Wisconsin, who is one of the most vigorous writers and well equipped observers of large social tendencies tbat we have produced. Mr. Turner :is preparing a group of articles on distinctive .characteristics of the west. Another notable series of articles which bear directly upon American life at the present time is "The Interpretation of Democracy During the Last 80 Years," by Mr. 32. L. Godkin, editor of the New York JNation. Among the aaditional attractive announcements are '•BeminiscenceB of Col. Thomas Wentworth Higginson," whose career as writer, reformer, soldier, public servant, .extends over the last 50 years, and has brought him into intimate relations with every important movement and almost every important man in war, in politics, and in literature during that time. Articles .on the great activities of the 19th century, on seven of the great American writers, on our public school system, on the social results of liquor laws, on woman labor in Europe, together with stories, novels, poems, etc., make up a program of great interest.

Be lleuouncee tile Democratic Party For Good—It 'Can Sfever He lle- orpniitzed on Tariff Jjlnes. Col. Clms. A. Clarke, who is wel known in Eossuth county, and who has been for many years a leading demo crat in Iowa, Buys he not only voted for 'McKiriley, but that he shall in future ally himself with-the republican party In an interview with the Des Moines Leader reporter he said: "What do I think of the future of the democratic party? I'm sure I can't tell, more than that I have hud all I want of it. I'm done with it. There:is no hope of reuniting the elements on any issue on which they can again work together The democratic party had, as I said in some of my speeches this year, a ver; promising child in tariff reform. Bu we sacrificed that child in a manner that recalls the story of a certain biblical character who had a son and took him to the sacrificial altar bj divine command. The biblical stori tells UB that the paternal hand wai stayed by a command from heaven jus as the knife was about to descend on its latal mission, but in the case of our sacrifice there was no divine interven tion and we sacrificed our child on the altar of our party disagreements abou the details of a tariff bill. Cleveland was Tight in what he saidi;. against .the Wilson bill, and in refusingSJip give i his.signature or approval.'*. The failure to accomplish anything- st^bstantial in the way of real tariff reform, becausi of the hickerings of our own people was .the start towards the disintegra tion of the democratic party. We hac failed on that one cardinal issue. Now we have the choice between the two positions on the money question, when there is a real and vital difference The republicans will not do .anything very dangerous or serious on tine tariff Whatever they do will involve no threat to the perpetuity of our institu tions, as would the triumph of the fre< silver proposition and the other proposals of the Chicago platform. "That was the idea that Henry Watterson entertained when the Wil son bill WEB passed. He said to me ' I am too old a man to ever see the party reorganized on this principl and given a chance to win on it.' Ant that was, as I am well satisfied, thi reason Henry Watterson dropped ou of politics. I sat with him in the private office of Potter Palmer when the Chicago convention of 1892 was in progress, and we talked of the matter He was waiting to go into the conven tion to speak against the committee resolution on the tariff question, anc to advocate, instead of the meaningles plank reported, an honest tariff reform proposal. You know the result. sat and waited till Mr. Watterson was sent for, and went into the convention together. I told him to strike ou straight from the shoulder in favor o: real tariff -reform, and he did. The substitute was adopted by a vote o about two and and a half to one, as ! remember, and the party was on record as overwhelmingly in favor of reform But the Wilson bill was not a carrying out of that pledge, and it was our defeat on that issue. "When General Trimble came to me to try to interest me in the sounc money democratic movement this year I explained my position to him, and said I did not believe it was worth the while. I said there was no hope o: ever again reforming the party around the one issue on which we had a chance to win. We could not bring the silver men back to us; we could not go over* to them and rid the party of silver, thought that if the party had stubbej its toe and fallen in the road and go1 some mud and dust on itself, we might have picked it up and wiped its nose apd brushed off the dirt and made it a pretty good party again, But the trouble was that it had a blood disease, and I am top old to try to eradicate that." wua ,000, Two OorwltU Citizens Have a Grievance Against the Minneapolis & • 8t, Louis Hallway.

Mde. f hey Were at Jtayfleld, and the the story, of the tot Some curious chapters tit pioneer history of the famous county Beat war between Algona and Irvington are found in the files of the did Webster City Freeman. Irvington was "pro- mrtted" by Webster Cltyites, the late Kendall Young, whose maenificen .gift of his whole estate for a public library will long keep his memorj .green, attheir head. Charles Aldridh now curator of the Iowa historlca department, was editor of the Freeman •and owner of some Irvington lots. He visited the ambitious town once ani gave it a write up, back In the gboi days of'57, and for months saw :tha j Irvington did not lack championship This ownership of the lots caused the Fort Dodge Sentinel, the only other 1857 newspaper in these -parts, to accuse Mr. Aldrich of casting fiinjf|< a Algonu. It arose in this wayV^Mr A. S. White, editor of the Sentinel visited Algona to attend a democratic convention, and when he went home he wrote a complimentary notice in which he said: " Algona is situated directlj north of Fort Dodge, 40 miles, on -the east branch of the Des Moines. I contains about 50 or 60 houses and something like 400 inhabitants." There can be no doubt that he "saw double,' at least, on this estimate, and Editor Aldrich came back with the following "Beference was made to the fact tha' certain democrats had lost a bottle o schnapps. We allude to it merely for the purpose of saying that our Mem White of the Sentinel'is not the feller It was charged upon him, doubtless from the -fact that he saw so man; houses at Algona when he was up therl holding his convention." The Pree man also charged some skulduggery in the matter of holding the convention at Algona, for in the same paper wa this item: "Who held a convention at Algona for the tdemocracy on the loth inst., when it-he un-meddled-with county convention was called at Irving ton on the 15th? Lets have a ful history of the affair. What became the Irvington convention?" It was in reply to this that the Sentinel charged the Freeman with trying to belittle Algona, to which the Freeman, Oct. 8, 1857, replied: "The Sentinel accuses us of trying to create prejudice against Algona. This IB another of our bilious little neighbor's lies, as wide of the truth a his _story about the houses and in habitants. The people of Algona dii not ask % or that puff and they were al completely disgusted with it. Hi assigns as a reason that we own two outside lots in Irvington, etc." T the Freeman adds that if the __ owned the lots they would be iptly attached for debt. Aldrioh visited Irvington in iber, 1857. He devotes tw columns to the town in the Freeman o Sept. 10. They contain much valuable history especially of the old Indian fort, and many curious reminders o the hopes and ambitions of the pionee days. But prior to this visit he hat published various items from others one from a prospector for the Dubuqut, and Pacific Bail way, which was to be all through this country before anyone knew it. In August the Freeman quoted him as follows: "He also speaks highly of the new and beautifu town of Irvington. Several new build ings have been erected the presen season and many more are in process of erection. He informs us that Judge Call, the original proprietor of Algona has lately become interested in a trac of land joining Irvington, and has platted it as an addition to that town He is building a fine residence upon the land." Mr. Aldrlcb. when he came up in the most delightful of all our seasons was delighted with the town, etc., as thousands have been since, for there is The one o s ave een snce, or no more beautiful spot in Iowa. site of Irvington, "he says, "is the most beautiful we have ever seen. ' "Irvington overlooks a greater exte of country than any point we have ye' seen in the state." Then follows a lot of curious suggestions: " A mail route has been established from Fort Dodge to Man kato and one to Clear Lake, both via Irvington. Geo. Smith is postmaster.' "Irvington, no doubt, has betterrail way facilities than any other point in that vicinity, It is situated most admirably for a crossing from east to west and in direct line of a north anc south roud, which must 'he built ere long. " Ere long prpved to be 25 years. "Sixty farms have been commenoec within two and a half miles of town, id over 8,000 acres of sod have been 1 nad over this season. " 'ollowing are the chief paragraphs Mr. Aldrioh's report: "The town Site was claimed in August, 1855, Messrs, K, Young, Geo. Smith, Cyrus Smith, and L. L. Treat under the firm name of K. Young & Co. Improvements were made the following spring, and in July, 1856, it was finally entered," "There are now upon the town plat dwelling bouses and several others are in the process of building; also a rood hotel, kept by A. P. Wheeler. The proprietors have erected a fine sawmill, which manufactures, on average, 8,000 feet of lumber a They also manufacture lath shingles, There is but one store, which is kept by Mr. B. Parmenter, he pioneer merchant. There are likewise a carpenter and furniture shop and a blacksmith's shop, all carried on >y good mechanics, »* One principal object of interest is •he foi-t, fronting the public which was bailt during the di&turt?anoe last 8pr4n,e, The ants gallantly resolved to stand their ground i{ the Indians made a >flejoe.n.t upon the pee Moines aettlemjsajta, flomblnsd fliei? ft* an day and at the 'top^ and aodide battened ieavj. slabs.

It has been that the ;naine of the v.,, changed to Port Irvington, prppriate and euphonious this_will doubtless be done i session of the legislature "i In the issue of Nov. 1273857, the Freeman has one Jurther reference to the town: "An unprincipaled lellow recently went to Irvington and jumped a claim belonging to an honest, hard working actual settler. -'The Irvington boys'—as generous a set of fellows as ever broke bread—at once held a meeting at which they resdlved to apnlv the celebrated remedies of Dr Tar and Prof. Feather to the morallv diseased claim jumper. The latter however, left in a hurry, the mere odor of these medicaments having perfectly cured him." Nothing is left today of the Irvington thus described but the store north of Dr. Armstrong's. It lay north of the present town, and the site is now a lertile field. The mill was, moved to Algona. The town hall gradually went to decay. The other buildings were moved away. HOW TO OAEE POE MILE, Geo. 8. Aneus Gives Some Good Ad- •vlce to Uoiry Men in the Burt Monitor. Secretary Angus- of the Burt creamery calls attention to al ewiaots worthy of notice in the following suggestions to creamery patrons: Butter that is western extra is :now .22 cents per pound in New York with an upward tendency. To get that pricethe butter must be exceptionally good—of the very finest quality. Not more than one-sixth of the creamery butter of Iowa comes up to that standard. The other five-sixths is graded as firsts and .seconds, which .means a loss to the farmers of irom five to 25 cents jper hundred weight of milk, as one cent less per .pound of butter is five cents less per hundred of milk. Now to make good butter we must have good iresh milk. No milk will be taken that is more than.36to 40 hours- old. If brought it will be rejected, and do be careful in the keeping ,of the milk. Do not let it freeze, :and do not keep it in yom- barn or stable. Milkis very susceptible to odors, and the odor of the cow stable in the hutter is sure to lower the grade of the butter in the market. Do not cover up the milk close before the animal heat is out; leave the cover of the can off until the milk is thoroughly cooled. And do not think that because we have a separator the milk does not .need/straining. Take a wisp of hay or straw and wipe off the cow's sides and udder before milking, as the droppings from the cow's sides into the milk is what gives the butter that wintry fiavor so much complained of in the markets. The cow may smell-all right in her place in the harn, but not in the butter on our tables. Cleanliness is akin to Godliness, and if you expect to get the top price for your butter, the moat important point to observe is to !keek the milk sweet and clean and delivered in good order at the factory. Bemember, one pound of butter will buy two bushels of corn or oats, so it will pay to feed and take the best of care of the cows, as they are really .and truly the advance agent of prosperity— no cholera about them. Theieed mill at the creamery runs every day now, and we are grinding at the low price of five cents per two'bushel sack, so there is no excuse Jor not feeding your cows all they require. Yours truly, GEO. S, ANGUS, Secretary. SEWEBS ATIT! A ITDIBAITOE, City Council -WJIU Take Steps to Have tue Sewers Bunnlner Into tne North. End. of To^wn Extended or Closed.
