It believes that 1897 Witness a revival of prosperity that will be unchecked for ft generation. But 1896 has hot been the worst year ^ • the human race has ever lived through. jU It has not even been a bad year, Locally the corn crop and oat crop have been comparative failures and hog cholera has cost many thousands of dollars. But wheat and butter and poultry and cattle have all been up to or above the average of late years. The Burt farmer, who got over $1,000 for 20 steers does not complain of the season, neither does the Corwith farmer who has sold his calves for $16 ahead, Clover for the first time in some years has been an unqualified success. There are many things that have made for prosperity during the past year. With all the unfortunate and apparently needless setbacks .the people have suffered in the past four years, i( j. none of the four has been a bad year if ^ «we take a wide enough view. There ?''\ has not been one in which the people have not had more of the comforts and conveniences of life for their labor than they had 30 years ago in the best years. In another column is the market report in Algona for 1867. That was when the good old prices for farm produce, that we often hear about, prevailed, wheat $1.50 a bushel, etc. But comparing wheat with groceries, merchandise, machinery, etc., there has not been a wheat crop • in late years that would not buy more than the $1.50 wheat of 1867 would, making no allowance for the wonderfully increased facilities for raising the wheat and getting it to market. Some are disappointed already that the end of last fall's political campaign has not been followed by an immediate restoration of business activity. They taKe a very inadequate view of the causes which operate to check business activity and of the time needed to overcome them. It is entirely likely that 1897 will be well spent before the factories and the farms will be again working at full capacity, the interchange of products going on unchecked. In fact if during the new year policies are adopted and foundations are laid for a great commercial revival, reasonable anticipations will be fully met. The year that is gone has had many lessons. We have had opportunity as never before to realize the interdependence of classes in the business world, and the importance of stable public policies. In a local way the change that is going on is easy to discern. The citizen who a generation age had his own well now relies on the city for water; who kept his own cow now relies on the milkman for milk; , who butchered his own pig and froze his own quarter of beef now relies on the meat market for his steaks. In the broader field the change has been even more marked. The enormous increase in facilities for exchange has in one generation made the world one market to which all go and upon which all depend. The inconvenience and • loss of the local citizen, whose well has gone dry from disuse, when the city pump gets out of order is the inconvenience and loss'of whole classes of ' producers when any part of the great machinery of exchange is disturbed by radicaljpbanges, real or threatened, The country has struck bed rock - during 1896, It is gratifying to know that bed rock means more now than the high wave of prosperity did to .another generation.

Walter Wellman is trying to work up a boom for H. H, Kohlaaat of Chicago for getting the Word "gold" into the republican national platform. As a matter of fact the word as used signified absolutely nothing, "Existing standard," "parity," and other Words explaining the republican position meant exactly the same thing. The vital thing In the republican platform was not the Word "gold" by Itself, but the word gold in relation to bimetallism. The vital thing was Inserting the phrase pledging the administration to promote bimetallism, and that was done by Senator Allison and the Iowa delegation after the Kohlsaats and Hnnnas were done with the plank. The Insertion of thai clause was as vital to the platform as Elaine's reciprocity clause was to the McKinley tariff, as time is already fully demonstrating. The Iowa delegates deserve all the credit that attaches to the St. Louis money plank. The Rockwell City Advocate would be sorry to have Congressman Dolliver go into the senate. It figures it this way: " From his present position to the speaker- ship of the house Is not a very long step, and the speaker -has more power and opportunities for. influencing legislation in the Interests of the people than any sena tor can have. Then from the speakership to the presidential chair is not an Improbable road for an able man to travel. The great west Is going to furnish a president some day." The Sac Sun is for Phil. C. Hanna. It says: Mr. Hanna was removed by President Cleveland to make room for a rebel general, and the demand for his appointment to the higher post is quite general among his Iowa friends. The Garner Signal says it is Congressman Dolliver's opinion that the policy of the McKinley administration will be the same President Harrison pursued, which was to leave postmasters and all public officials to fill out their terms, unless cause for removal can be shown.

P. Dorlaiid Describes How the Southern Loader Looked on Ills Last Visit to Atlanta. , , While rummaging about the old papers in the clerk's office one day recently, B. F. Grose unearthed a letter written by C. P. Dorland to N. B. Benham. Mr. Dorland was located in Atlanta, Ga., at the time and the letter is dated May 3, 1886. In it he tells "Poly" about the sights and scenes attending the farewell visit of Jefferson Davis. It is interesting reading. A few paragraphs are as follows: "Well, Poly; I did not think I would ever live to see the day when the old confederate rebel flag, with the three stripes and blue field with seven stars, and the battle flag of red with cross bars and white stars, would be hung on high, and would be carried through the streets at the head of a procession of confederate veterans 8,000 strong. But I have seen it, and more than that have heard the old rebel yell applaud it and cheer on cheer would greet it as it came in sight. No man can deny that the car that left here to bring Jeff Davis to this place was decked with four confederate battle flags and two of the confederate stars and stripes. Neither can it be denied that two confederate flags were held aloft on staves and the confederate veterans marched under them, that two confederate flags were carried through the streets of Atlanta April 80, and May 1, 1886, Neither can it be denied that there were several stores and large buildings decorated with the three colors, red, white and blue; that hundreds of small confederate flags'were waived by children, men and women and worn in the hats and pinned on the clothing and displayed every Where on the streets and in public places; that badges like the one enclosed were worn by hundreds of people, These are things that no one will attempt to deny because they were not done in a corner, but openly and publicly in the face of thousands of people assembled to do honor to Jeff Davis. "I had a good view of the Hon. (?) Davis several times. He is a man below the average size, very grey, with whiskers ana moustache trimmed very close, much the same way in which Gen. Grant's pictures represent his whiskers, He seems quite feeble and tottering. He is a very pleasant man to look at, with an intelligent face, but shows the marks of age, with a sallow compaction so common to old people in this section. 11 1 have been trying to think of some man who nearest resembles him in Algona, put do not find anyone just to my mind, but if you would stand }00 feet away and have a side view, just to show the whiskers, but not the face, of Harry Walkley, you would nave a man for sise and appearance very m^uoh like Davjs, ••Many of the more conservative men here regret very much the displaying of the confederate flag, and some few tnink the whole demonstration a mistake. " In all of Davis 1 utterances here and at mery and in various places he , and flress,. ft West Ben'd'a ptole he « }QO w» over- tbo tody ef shows that he does not give full vent to bis warmest and truest feelings.

He" belonged to that bahd of berdef ruffiafos, which keeping Well iti advance of white setttefneht in its Westward toafch to escape the clutches of the law, prepared for such settlement when it came the bitterly hostile reception it received* by ras^ cality afid treachery in dealing with the savages. Lott was first known in Marion county, as a whiskey seller among the Sacs and Foxes, and as a horse thief* Tom Saylof, who still resides at Saylorsville in Polk county* knew Lott well. In a rodent letter he says: "My first acquaintance with Lott was in 1844. My father was a government contractor, and had the contract of furnishing the Indians (Sacs and Foxes) with beef and flour. At the time of the treaty When this county was bought from them he had a permit to come before it was opened to settlement. After the treaty he furnished them every fall with beef and flour and the garrison with beef and hay, I was a boy 12 years old. Lott followed stealing horses from the Indians. He was caught several times and whipped by my father and other white men dressed as Indians, to try and break him." In another place Mr. Saylor has written of Lett's horse stealing propensities: "I was well acquainted with this man, Lott. He first settled this side of the Red Rock, before the white people were allowed to live there, and his business was robbing and stealing Indian horses. A few settlers had settled around Fort Des Moines, and they 'would disguise themselves as Indians and catch Lott, tie him to a tree, whip him nearly to death, and make him promise to leave the country never to return; but he always came back." In 1846, after the Sacs and Foxes had f ono, Lott moved into Boone county to eal with the Sioux, locating at Pea's Point. In the same year he came north into Webster county at „ the mouth of the Boone river. Here, in 1848, Sidominadotah found him and ordered him to leave, giving him " a moon" in Jwhich to puckachee. It is said that the Sioux traced stolen horses to his cabin. As to this as to every incident connected with Lett's career so many varying stories have been told that it is now difficult to determine exactly what the facts ' were. But Major Williams suggests the horse stealing theory of Sidominadotah's action. Some writers say that Lott was at home, others that he had gone to Boonesboro for more whiskey. One story is that the Indians came in his absence and demanded whiskey, which Mrs. Lott could not or would not give, and that this was the occasion of the hostilities. The generally accepted version is, however, that the Indians ordered Lott to leave, and on his refusal treated him as they did all the other intruders, killing his stock, upsetting his beehives, driving him out, and maltreating his family. Lott and a stepson escaped and went to Pea's Point, where they spread the alarm, telling the people that the Indians had murdered the whole family. A little boy attempted to follow them, and walked 20 miles on the ice when he could go no further and was frozen. Mr. Saylor says he crawled into a hollow log to die, but others say he was found on the ice. Lott raised a party of whites and Johnnie Green's Indian band, and returned to find his family alive, although Mrs. Lott died shortly after as the results of exposure and brutal treatment. .Three young children were left, two girls and a little boy, who were given out to families in Boone county. The girls grew up to womanhood and married prominent citizens of Boone. Lott devoted his time henceforth to plans for revenging himself upon Sidominadotah. Mr. Saylor writes: "I heard him say myself'that he meant to stay in that country till he got revenge." One story, which seems to lack foundation in fact is that his first plan was to take a barrel of poisoned whiskey and another of poisoned meat into Sioux territory. After making a camp he departed leaving the appearance of hasty desertion. Seventy Indians died suddenly of some mysterious disorder.. No authentic record, however, oL.any such occurrence exists, . In any event the distemper did not catch Sidominadotah, and in 1858 Lott moved up into Humboldt county to be near the "old head devil,"as he styled the chief. Until then the troops at Fort Dodge had kept an eye on him, With their departure his plans developed. In January following, 1854, Sidominadotah was in winter quarters living on the creek in Humboldt county, called now> Bloody Run, in memory of the massacre, with his mother, wife and two children, a younger squaw also with two children, in all nine of them. Lott had gotten into the old chief's good graces by pretending friendship and dispensing whiskey, and one fine January morning after packing his own goods, he per- wh&f 8 the fepof t Was that he tfafl hung by vigilant^ adding that the story is likely as he deserved hanging ii any , A f Thefagetfftfae Indians when the? fdiifcdthe Cafiab at Bloody Bun Was vefy gteat, Ifikf>adutah, especially threatening tfouble. The settlers Made evef-y 6frort to trace Lott, without success, and then to pacify Ink- padutahj although there is something ludicrous ih the proceedings that followed, A coroners inquest was held on the remains of Sidominadotah, which the Indians attended, thinking it Was to be a big " pow wow" preced' ing the turning of Lott ovet- to them; They also brought the bonds of the Old chief* delivering them under the impression that that ceremony was in some way important. The Indians announced many times to the Coroner's jury: "So wasecha nepo Dakota, Sidominadotah hepo," (White man kill Dakotah, kill .Sidominadotah), Whereupon, Major Williams records, part of the jury thought that an Indian named Wasecha Nepo had done the killing. This led to ah animated debate and finally to a row, one member of the jury insisting that "nepo" was a Greek word. The proceedings turned into a farce and the Jury quit in a quarrel, one member stamping his feet and denouncing the whole affair as a "d — proposition" (imposition). The skull of old Sidominadotah was taken to Homer, then the county seat of Webster county, and nailed to a house where it was left for over a year. Charles Aldrlch saw the skull In 1857 in the office of, Granville Berkley, a pioneer lawyer, and says it showed many fractures, as though it had been beaten with a heavy club, and portions of the Integuments were still adhering to it. Mr. Berkley told Mr. Aldrich that he kept the relic because the murdered Indian had been his friend, The Indians, when they found that they were being trifled with, and that Lott was not forthcoming, left more offended .than ever. This was the immediate occasion of all the subsequent raids along the Des Moines, and the direct cause of the Spirit Lake massacre three years later. Every unprotected settler from that time forward was in a state of alarm. Trappers, surveyors, and pioneers were stripped and abused, and no one's life was safe, although no one was killed until the hardships of the spring of 1857 were added to the aggravations of the Bloody Run massacre. The delay in taking revenge was doubtless in part due to the rapid influx of white settlement, and in part to the vigorous admonition of Col. Woods, of the Fort Ridgely forces, who immediately upon hearing of the massacre called the chiefs together, and after assuring them that everything possible would be done to capture and punish Lott, told them in his own peculiar way that if they caused any trouble to the whites he would " blow them all to hell." Lott undoubtedly had some provocation against the Sioux. But considering his well known character the presumption is the Sioux had at least equal provocation against him. His act at Bloody Run was inexcusably cowardly and atrocious. Major Williams in a sentence pronounces what must be the final judgment: "Never was a more brutal murder committed than that of these poor helpless squaws and their children."

Congressman Dolllyer Visits a Town Where He Taught School Before He Came to Iowa. Congressman Dolliver lectured in Paw Paw, 111., Deo. 22. In announcing his coming the Lee County Times published the following interesting reminiscences: "There are few men in the country that the people of Paw Paw and vicinity have desired to see and hear more than Congressman Dolliver of Iowa. Twenty years ago he taught school at Suydam's in Victor township and at Sandwich in DeKalb county. Since going to Iowa he has become a leading member of the Iowa bar, and the best known member of the Iowa delegation in congress. But before this he was and is one of the few real orators of the United States, a land of many orators and much eloquence, The New York Sun places him among the six greatest speakers of the time and another New York paper says that if it was called upon to name the three greatest orators of America, it would certainly include him in the list, He has : been eight years in the house of representatives,, was chairman of committee on war claims for awhile, was the - most active member of the naval committee in building "The Iowa," the great ship of our war squadrom, and is now a member of the ways and means committee that will frame the new protective tariff bill according to the wishes of the man whom he himself called the advance agent of prosperity, 11 who has been elected by the votes of the people, the president of these United States," He is universally popular and bis political enemies like him and admire Wm as do his friends. He has a safe majority in his district, "thebig Tenth," in Iowa, and the people have shown their purpose to keep him there until they can send him up higher in political life.
