A petition to the legislature to make , 66me changes in the mileage books Issued by the railways in Iowa was quite generally signed in Algoha Saturday, The petitioners ask that mileage books be made good in anybody's hands, and that a two-cent fate be made on one4housahd'ffiile books as well as on the two-thousand-mile books, as at present. The first change certainly ought to be made. There is no reason why a mileage book bbught and paid for should not be subject to any use the purchaser sees fit to put it to. It should be good for any passenger who has It In hie possession, It is absufd that only one member of a family should be allowed to ride on a thousand mile ticket, bought by another member of the same family, and the argument that a reduction to two and one-half cents a mile is a sufficient offset against this inconvenience is not good, because the payment In advance for 1,000 miles of travel more than offsets the reduced price, as every man in business recognizes. As to the second change, which is practically coming to a two-cent passenger fare, if the first is adopted, several things are to be considered. The railways have not been getting rich the past few years. In spite of this, however, they have kept up their full passenger service. If a cut in rates at this time means any curtailment in th« service, is it worth while in Algona for instance to urge it? The North- westera road has put on a fast passenger train to Des Moines. The officials are now keeping a careful record >of the earnings of this train and rumors that it may not be continued como from inside sources. If a cut in the passenger rate should be the means of losing us this train how much would we gain? .If-a two-cent rate is compatible with the maintenance of our present service at this time it should come. But if a two-cant rate means, as we believe it does, that the roads will be obliged to reduce the service, we question very much whether there is anything in it. Saving $5 on a thousand miles of travel will be a very poor offset against inferior cars, slower time, and less trains. THE APPRECIATION OP MONEY. ••Senator Chubb introduced a subject to the farmers' institute that was of as much practical importance as any that was discussed. He called attention to the enhanced purchasing power of money, as measured by the decline in the price of commodities. His assumption, in which he would have found plenty to debate with him, was that this decline in prices marks a retrograde movement for the farmer and laborer. No discussion arose. But the late campaign is far enough removed so that such a matter should receive calm and serious attention. Does this decline in prices mean that the farmer and laborer are on the back track? The senator chpse .a table of prices pf agricultural products for consideration, S«oh a table probably could not be considered wholly free from prejudice. But tables of prices of commodities we have no interest in could as easily be made, For instance 80 years ago James Molntyre in a cost sale advertised nails at $8.75 per keg in Algona. A better nail is now sold at $2,60 a keg. Smith Bros, then sold sugar at from 14 to 25 cents a pound, Better sugar now sells at from three and one-half to five cents a pound. This change marks the enhanced pur- chasing.power of money, "the appreciation of gold" as it is called. Is the change pne that injures the farmer or laborer? Wherever the truth may lie as to the enhanced purchasing power of money, it will not dp to assume that all reduction in prices, regardless of cause, past 30 years has been injurious. Gep. E. Roberts' figures are disproved the reductipn j n the prices of the farm prPduce Senator Chubb referred to must be credited almost wholly tP cheapened transportation, juntas, the reduction in the price of nails and sugar is due to cheapened transportatipn and cheapened methods 9! prpduotion, j t a oeg not Ina ,,j £ any jreSvegrade jupvement at all, Jt-ie doubtful if any case can be iBtufniflcenl opportunities before it to be- c'ome one of the chief distributing centers of northern Iowa. Its growth Into a great city is ohly a question of tlffle. It is the capital of a most fertile county, comprising 1,000 square miles. Were lowft as dehsely populated as either Saxony «r Belgium Kossuth county would contain 800,000 id- habitants. The citizens of Algona have laid the foundation of success Well and strong, in churches, schools, a college, a library, and other factors of civilization. We believe it will not merely become a center of commerce, but of learning, also. The application is local^ but the thought is general. What indeed will be that future when Kossuth county has 800,000 people? And what is more certain than that Iowa and every fertile section like Iowa will some day be thus densely populated? How trivial in view of that great future are many of our now important worries and activities, and how far reaching are many of the small beginnings, now insignificant. It is a wholesome tonic for our discontent to take this broader view occasionally, NEWS AND COMMENT. The selection of Wm. E. Mason for senator in Illinois seems to be a great victory for clean politics. In response to the rumors about a movement against Gov. Drake the Capital predicts that Gov. Drake will be accorded a renomination for the office of governor •without opposition, Here is a request from one Mrs. Anna Parker Pruyn of Albany to publish a letter from one Mrs. Crannell against woman suffrage. Mrs. Pruyn assures us thut " it would be a great misfortune for Iowa to got this craze of woman suffrage fastened upon her." .Mrs. Pruyn further assures us that "the best women in the country aro satisfied with the way the dear Lord has made them." This relieves our mind. Wo hope It will reassure our readers without Mrs. Crannell's address, which discussion of hog cholera unavoidably crowds out. The News is informed that Ackley Hubbard of Spencer is a candidate for consul to Honolulu. There is not going to be much show for lowans for consulships, but Mr. Hubbard would bo a good man for one. J. W. Doxsee says in the Monticello Express about the editorial meeting: They could not have cast their lot with more bosnitable people, nor could they have been the guests of more generous-souled editors than those who live in the Boston of Iowa. E. N. Bailey says in the Britt Tribune: We should like to see just such a man as Phil. Hanna sont out as United States consul to every American consulate. The devil himself can't scare him and he understands and appreciates the dignity of this great nation and knows how to maintain it and make foreigners respect it. The Iowa candidates for postofllces held a meeting at Algona last week under the auspices of the Upper Des Moines Editorial association, is the way the Boone Democrat tells about the editorial meeting. Three years ago Emlin McLain, Judge L. G. Kinney and Hon. H. O. Weaver were appointed to confer with representatives of other states, the object being to agree upon uniform laws of business. One result has been a uniform set of laws governing notes and negotiable instruments, which has been made the subject of special report to the present legislative session. Our code revisers could not do a wiser act than to join with other states in securing uniformity in all commercial legislation. This report ought to receive very friendly consideration. All the indications are thatPresident McKinley is choosing a strong cabinet. " Tama Jim" Wilson is slated for the bureau of agriculture. He will be the best man that has yet held the place, Jerre Rusk not excepted. As a successor to Morton he will shine like a whole cluster of ordinary political luminaries. Senator Wolcott is still soun'ding English sentiment on bimetallism, The impvesaion prevails that England will agree to a ratio and to coinage in the India mints, If England will agree to help sustain a ratio that is enough. Lon Chapin has taken a partner in With him on the Rook Rapids Review, Mr. Chapin has made the Review one of the best, if not the best, of papers in northern Iowa. If his partner adds anything to its merits it will become a shining light in country journalism. the put againei the appreciation of «atil it Pftn be jshQwn that the pf optnmpditiep has b fie p PWR tP tfjat pplnt a]} pf prices js sui pf IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD, Burt shipped 903 cars of produce past year.

Hanna, a former well known citizen of Goldfield, but for a dozen years past engaged in the real estate and banking business at LuVerne, has let the contract for the erection of a $10,000 residence. At the time of leaving this county George was not worth over half the sum named, but it is said by those who claim to know that it now requires six figures to represent his wealth. Mr, Hanna is not only a "hustler" in business affairs, but a public spirited man and citizen, ahd is in all respects deserving of the success attained. Forest City Summit: Charles Ald^ rich should have a history of the Congregational church choir of Algona among his records at Dos Molees. It is such an unusual one that it should be preserved, printed, and a copy furnished to every pastor in the state to read during the quarterly squabbles which are popularly supposed to occur in all well regulated bands of musicians who raise their voices in ecclesiastical concert. The leader of that choir has just resigned after 27 years of continuous service, during which time he has stood by the heavy end of the instrument and furnished a thunderous bass, which secured for him the reputation of being the leading singer of that section. It is a record so much out of the ordinary that it should be engraved on a suitable tablet and posted high on the walls of the sanctuary, that all the parish may know in time to come of the faithful service of the man of talent. Thesopranoalsoshould not be forgotten, as she has seryed for six or more years, while the tenors and altos have alternated, several taking those parts in the quartette during the last few years. JUST 30 YEARS AGO. It was 30 years ago, Jan. 25, 1867, that the great blizzard . in which Thomas 'Dawson was frozen to death occurred. It was a storm every old settler will r.emember. Eight inches of snow were swept over the country, but the mercury only went to three degrees below. Mr. Dawson was the father of Algona's present tailor. He and a stepson, James Baldwin, started with a load for Lett's creek, Thursday morning, intending to haul back a load of hay. They got back to within three miles of town when the team gave out. Mr. Dawson then tried camping out. TUe boy froze to death Friday night. Mr. Dawson crawled to the river on his bands and knees, where he was found by Wm. McKay. He lived a few days, but death came, -t- •+• -*Jas.

Emmetsburg Democrat: If it's no crime to steal a dog it certainly should not be an offense against the law to shoot one. Webster City Journal: It is the hope of most people that the high court may find the dog to be property and his owner responsible for his acts. Sheldon Mail: The decision is believed to be the first of the kind ever rendered in the state. The case will probably be appealed to the supreme court and may yet become like unto the Jones county calf case. Bockford Register: A learned judge has decided that dogs are wild animals, and if his decision is sustained by the supreme court all that a man needs to do when he desires to possess a canine is to lay hands on a neighbor's poodle. But the supreme court will sit down hard on this legal luminary, and dog owners have no occasion for uneasiness. Bancroft Register: In other words you are at liberty to swipe a $50 dog and when the owner seeks justice through the court the thief is in a position to look you in the face, adjust the tip of his right thumb against the end of his nose and move the fingers on that hand as does a cornet player. You are safe and have sinned not. But don't steal the man's old $3 Waterbury with a 50 cent brass chain, or you will get SO or 00 days in jail and a |50 or S100 fine- that would be larceny, theft, crime rampant, and a frightful example to the rising generation. LeMars Sentinel: This will be bad news to the owners of valuable dogs, as they will be obliged to watch them with more care than ever, knowing that they will have no redress if the canines are abducted. There is a decided probability that the supreme court of Iowa will not affirm the decision of the Kossuth county judge, but for the present his de.oision stands as the only one made in the state on this point. He took the subject under advisement for three days after hearing it argued all one day, and therefore cannot be said to have rendered the decision hap-hazard.

Call came to what Is now Algona in July, 1864, six months after Lott had killed Sidomin- adotah at Bloody Run and a few weeks after the Sioux had gone east to make their raid on Hewitt and the Wihne- bagoes at Clear Lake. . They were the first settlers north of Fort Dodge and west of the Hewitt and Dickinson settlement. A man by the name of Miller had located nine miles above Fort Dodge, but following Sidomin- adotah's murder the Indians had driven him in. To the great west there was nothing, It was not until the December following that any but Indian traders located at Sioux City, Major Williams, in his voluminous record, notes: "The very first settlers in Kossuth, and indeed north of Fort Dodge, were A. C. Call and his brother Ambrose A. Call. On the 4th day of July they came to toe at Fort Dodge [Mr. Call thinks it was on their second visit to the fort that they met the major, his son being the only one at home at the time the major refers to] when I was comparatively alone, and the judge stated to me that they were on an exploration tour in search of a point in this new country that would please them for a home and that they proposed going up the Des Moines rivei—at that time a very dangerous experiment, as the Indians were very much excited. I apprised them of the danger and risk they would run. His reply was that he had considerable knowledge of the Indian character, having crossed the plains. They concluded to risk it and started up the river. They returned, having selected the present site of Algona. On the 9th of July they again reached the point selected and made a beginning, having' hired a team and succeeded, after some trouble in getting one man who would accompany them." Both brothers had had previous experience in frontier life. Judge Call, as he was always known in later years, had gone across to California in 1850. He had been Indian commissioner there, and in various ways had -been thrown into close contact with the savages of the Pacific slope. The younger brother had spent a year at the head waters of the St. Croix among the Chippewas. Upon the judge's' return from the coast the two decided to go into Iowa to secure land. They came to Iowa City, and ascended the Iowa river, then turned to the west towards Homer, about which much was said in those days, and then came to Fort Dodge, where they arrived, as Major Williams notes, on the evening of July 4,1854. At Fort Dodge they met the surveyors Leech and Bell, who had been routed in what is now section 15 of Cresco township by the Sioux band which went to Clear Lake. These surveyors had the contract to survey in Kossuth, Humboldt, and Pbcahontas counties, and according to Major Williams had gone out heavily armed, although it is Mr. Call's recollection that they were not well equipped for Indian warfare. The Indians had begun by begging of the surveyors, grew troublesome and gradually frightened them so they could not sleep nights and had quit the job. At the fort they told the brothers of their troubles, but Judge Call instead of being deterred said that now was the time to go into the north country, as the Indians having committed an outrage would vacate and not be seen for some time. Accordingly they set forth. They came up the east branch of the river because it had the heaviest timber. They camped on what is now King's creek south of Algona and then crossed the present town site. Near where the old college stood in the south part of town, was the recently vacated camp of the Indians, whose broad trail led to the east, toward Clear Lake. They crossed the river north of town and turned south to the camping ground of the surveyors in Cresco, where the Indians had routed them. Here also they found the recent traces of the Indian camp. Taking .their noon meal they set out on the return trip to Fort Dodge, fully determined to cast their fortunes with the upper Des Moines valley. Thus on the Fourth of July that witnessed the big scare and retreat along the Iowa and Cedar rivers, a new settlement was established far to the westward, for two years to be the frontier outpost. In the spring of 1854 a party from east of Mason City consisting of Anthony Overaoker, Wm. J. Argabrite and J. M. Hunt crossed the Des Moines near where Algona stands and on returning marked out a claim that would include part of the present town- site, Mr. Hunt has written a description of the trip, A night was spent with Hewitt at Clear Lake, "Next morning," he says, "we left civilization behind us, and with a map and pocket compass, took a westernly course for Kossuth county, in which we struck the Des Moines river, A heavy rain had fallen and had swollen the river banks full. We fpllpwed up the stream to a little above the forks, where we made a raft of dry red elm logs and ferried our wagons with our baggage over, then the oxen and mules swam across, We camped here a little over two days to get some meat, as signs of elk were plenty. I killed three the next morning, the meat of which we cured over a slow fire, after salting, There was a fine body of timber here with good prairie all around. As we returned some two weeks later we took some claims here but never went back to them." ' Mr. Call says that on returning with supplies, and tools to build his cabin, he fpund the first cutting on the trees to mark out this claim, which was just south of Algona, the name Pveracker being written on most pf them. He has the date still preserved in his diary, Aug. 13,1854. *Np| Algpna, after having been tp M " ana expense of twp trips, i, - Ws business as'soon RB he ^"^J.W? ». n ft* ana phpp off neers, an outlaw. He was hot fitted for the company he soon found himself in, and after a year or two departed* the rumor being that in the end he was hung to the end of a wagon tongue, for a murder committed oh the Boohe river. In his poem on the dear departed Judge Call later referred to Billy as follows: First old Billy Hill If tradition be true, Came on With a bold and adventurous crew. And they waged a fierce War with varied success Against two Whiskey barrels which dally grew less, They conquered the -whiskey, then What did they do, When the whiskey was gone, why then—Billy went too. They're gone and Ben Hensley still weeps at the haste 01 this hero so brave and his matron so chaste. It was in the fall of 1854 that D. A. Haggard came with his father to run the United States survey in the northwest six townships of Kossuth. They came from Clear Lake, crossing Union slough at the lower end. On Buffalo Fork they met two trappers. The tradition is that these trappers were caught in the early winter by the Indians, stripped and tied to their horses, and driven about a ring all night, and let go in the morning nearly naked. Who they were is not known, nor are the facts conbeatable, now. It is believed, however, that it was their traps which were left in the Buffalo, hidden, and which were found a few years ago. Mr. Haggard's father ran a few lines that fall, but next season went north into Minnesota, and the survey in Kossuth was completed by C. C. Carpenter of Fort Dodge and Lewis H, Smith, both of whom came to Kossuth for that purpose in 1855. In November of 1854 W. H. Ingham came to the Call cabin. He returned to Cedar Rapids, but the following January was back again to remain. In the early spring he set out alone to look for the heavy pine timber they had told about at Fort Dodge and which was marked on his maps, making one of the early trips of exploration along the upper Des Moines. Of these pioneers all are living but Judge Call. In the old Algona Bee is preserved a description written by him of a night in the mountains on his return from California. It is a thrilling story and has never been published. It affords a suggestion of the sketches of pioneer history in Kossuth he might have written if death had not cut him down in the very prime of his mature years. The judge was a man of education and of considerable wealth when he came to Kossuth. He was a man of boundless ambition for the new settlement. When the history of the upper Des Moines valley is written he will occupy a large place in its pages. Some,years after the pioneer settlements of northern Iowa had been made and after the Indian scares had gone out of the reckoning Major Williams jotted down some recollections. Among them he pays a deserved tribute to the two brothers who founded Algona. Referring to the fact that for some time they and Mrs. Call were alone in this north country, and,that their claims were settled when the hostile Indians were all around them, he says no men in this northern part of the state have risked more and displayed more firmness than Judge Call and Ambrose A.
