BAteS of advertising seat on application. excellent tickets Are presented to the citizens of Algona. In personnel It would be difficult to improve upon eithef as a Whole. However the elec^ tidh results the city is insured an excellent administration. But aside froW the personnel Of the two tickets there are reasons for the election of the republican ticket which Will undoubtedly influence a great many voters. The ticket was named at the most largely attended caucuses that have been held in town, and there is a very strong feeling that those who participate in caucuses should abide by the results. This feeling does not apply as strongly in town matters as in county and state, and many would like to see town matters taken entirely out of party management. But after all the various schemes for securing municipal officers have been tried there has been invariably a return to the party caucus and convention as most satisfactory, and a party caucus and convention in town matters, if participated in, ought to be sustained. There is every reason this year why republicans should not start into the political campaign with misunderstandings. The city elections will barely be well out of the way when state politics will come on, and the extra session, the deficit in state revenues, and the apparently foundationless charges of corruption in state offices will be o sufficient bone of contention. Then will follow county politics, and it is already evident that in Kossuth there will be spirited contests in the convention. It will be only by the exercise of considerable moderation and good judgment that the big majority of last fall can be held together, and that President McKinley can be inaugurated except in the face of an already fading popular support. The danger to all political parties, successful on tidal waves, is of a reaction before new policies can be fairly tried. The danger to the coming republican administration is that the next congress will be democratic. Such a result is freely predicted, and is possible if not probable. Congressional elections have been changed by very slight local contention. The men named by the republican city convention are eminently well qualified. The plain duty of republicans who participated in the caucuses is to stand by the result. It is no less a duty because this is a municipal election. Eagle IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Mrs. J. 6.

The March Century is to be an "Inauguration Number," devoted especially to articles on life in the White House and at the capital, illustrated with a great number of interesting pictures, including two new portraits of Major McKinley and one of President Cleveland at his desk—all from photographs taken especially for the Century. A large edition will be printed. The interest in the Century's serials, "Campaigning With Grant" and -'Hugh Wynne, Free Quaker," is so great that both the January and February numbers went out of print almost immediately upon issue. 4-4-4- Holding fast to its literary traditions, the Atlantic Monthly for March contains, besides fiction, travel, reviews, and reminiscences, five articles on subjects of the greatest public importance and timeliness- John Flake's comprehensive discussion of Emmetsburg Tribune: Mrs. C. W. Cooks of Burt and her friend, Miss Angus, have been for a few days at the home of Mrs. Cooke's Mr, ftfld Mrs. A. A.

Here, for instance, is the March number, not too bulky to go comfortably into the pocket of the overcoat of any father of boys and girls, and yet it finds room for six serials m addition to all its wealth of. minor features and its two departments. 4-4-4- It is years since any magazine article has awakened as much interest as was aroused by Gov. Gue's (February Midland) disclosure of the authorship of the letter warning Secretary Floyd of John Brown's proposed insurrection. The conclusion of Mr, Gue's article in the March Midland will be equally interesting, relating the story of Barclay Coppoc's escape from the effect of Gov. Letoher's requisition, to which escape the author himself was a party. "Japanese Farming," by H. H. Guy, is really the first presentation of "the other side" of life in " the flowery kingdom." In "Across Country in a Van,'' Mary Avis Scott, Col. John Soott's talented daughter, traverses eastern Kansas looking toward Oklahoma.

Here is a paragraph of interest: Let me say in the first place that I have lived in northwestern Iowa for a number of years, I taught school all oyer, you might say, Kossuth county, and therefore know your county well. When I was there times were good and monev easy, but my health led me to look southward for a home and I am hot sorry I have made the move. J know that the lands of Iowa are far richer than those of Alabama and twice as much can be raised upon them, still you will find by investigation that produce sells much higher here, always, than in the west.

March 13: Mr. Schenck's burned and two children. house sells The main reason why this [s so is because three-fourths of the people are engaged in the cultivation of cotton and so are not producers of corn, wheat, oats, etc., thereby making a good home market. Then again cotton really brings move real money per acre into the country than any other crop now raised in the United States, therefore the people io fact have more money To t . visit this country at first you 'would not thipkso, as, the southern people are, very careless in the way they tab care Standard and Other Kinds of Money. Geo. E. Roberts in the Fort Dodge Messenger: Free silver advocates make a fictitious distinction- between "standard money" and other money. The Rock Rapids Review holds that the volume of money was out in two between 1873 and 1875, when Germany, France and the United States determined to use gold as the standard to which all their currency should conform. Gold has been our only commercial standard since 1834, Franee made it her sole legal tender standard because she saw that she must ohoosQ between gold and silver. But neither France nor the United States reduced the volume of silver in use, and while Germany reduced the volume of her silver she more than replaced it with gold and paper. In every country the volume of money available for business has been largely increased since 1873. The amount of money in the United States per capita was $18.04 in 1873 and is about $84 now. Practically none of it was "standard money" in 1873, and we repeat that the distinction between "standard money" and any other kind S 08 ^' ?° tw » 8 ordinary business, or its etfepts on prices are concerned, is entirely fictitious. AH anybody asks about money Jn business transactions I 8 .- "fcttfwar "TO it pass with: side by side with gold, upon their own intrinsic value. The Messenger believes in international bimetallism, the union of the two metals forming one standard. But the disadvantages of using silver as token money instead of standard money do not effect its usefulness while it is kept at par, The disadvantages are all connected With the trouble of keeping it at : par, not with its effect Oh prices or business while it is at par. We haven't space here to discuss the difference between international bimetallism and the so-called bimetallism which proposes for our country to put an " independent valuation" oh the two metals. We wish to confine ourselyes to the point that with a supply of money in this country of $18 for each person in 1873 and $24 in 1897, it.cannot be shown that prices have fallen for want of money* The money supply has increased faster than the population or business demands. Every dollar of the $24 is as available,' as useful, as potent, as each dollar of the and even more so. If every dollar of the present supply was gold it could not serve the business world more efficiently. If a man has steers to sell and few have money to buy, the price is affected by lack of competition. But if money comes which enables others to bid, It is of no consequence whether it is gold or paper. It is the fact of additional buyers which affects the price. The Deadly Parallel.

KMflAN IS ARMIGKED, fhe Sheflmrna ttardei-et attd feftttk Kobbei 1 —His Trial Postponed to Match 23* inability to Secure Witnesses the Cause —Why Attorney McMillan is So Earnest in Mis Behalf. GASOLINE UMPS MUST SO, Veers of the jjTew Dangled WjfWts Must Take Them Out, Deputy Oil Inspector Gullixson of The trial of Lew Kellihan, the Sherburne bank robber who passed through Algona while trying to escape, was begun at Fairmont last week, but is continued until March 23. The Fairmont Sentinel reports the full proceedings: Upon the opening of court after dinner Lew Kellihatt was arraigned and listened to the complaint, read by County Attorney Voreis, which charges him with murder in the first degree by the shooting and killing of Geo. R. Thorborn, cashier of the bank of Sherburne. The prisoner pleaded not guilty" to the charge. Lawyer McMillan then arose aftfl asked a continuance of the case, Saving laid affidavits before the court averring, among other things, that .two important witnesses, owing to sickness, could not be here at the present time. Judge Severance then motioned the lawyers, McMillan & Dunlap for the defense, and Voreis & Math wig for the state, to follow him, and all were in consultation in a jury room for the next 20 minutes. On returning, his honor announced that he considered there was sufficient reason for continuing the case, and that he would therefore put off the trial until March 3, at 1:30 p. m. This practically ended the business for the present, and the petit • jury were dismissed until the above date. It is an open secret that Kellihan's lawyers are willing to have the prisoner plead guilty to murder in the second degree and receive a life sentence, but County Attorney Voreis will not consent to this, preferring to have the case tried for all there is in it. To a Sentinel scribe Lawyer McMillan stated that he would not now move for a change of venue unless there was a very decided change of sentiment of the people of Martin county between now and the time set for trial. He is as willing to leave the case with a Martin county jury as 12 men in any other county. John Kellfhan, father of the prisoner, is a man of very limited means, and in answer to the. question as to why he (McMillan) and his partner were trying so hard to clear the prisoner when there could not be much in it for them, he replied: "I will tell you. Lew Kellihan saved the life of my little daughter a few years ago. She was skating and broke through the ice and would have drowned but for Lew, who rushed to her aid and lifted her out of a watery grave. The girl is now 16— she was 12 years old then. Lew Kellihan may not be as bright as some young men, but he has lots of sand." The affidavits presented setting forth the reasons for continuing the case, declare that Mrs. Kellihan, mother of the accused, has not sufficiently recovered from the terrible shock ' sustained on receipt of the news of the tragedy last October, to come to Fairmont and testify at this time; that Dr. Bates, the family physician and other important witnesses, are not on hand for'the reason that the family could not at this time raise the money necessary to bring them here; also that the aged father of John Kellihan lies at the point of daath at his home in Iowa, and that tke said John Kellihan ought to be at the bedside of'his dying father instead of here looking after the trial of his son. ANOTHER REPORT. Kellihan lives at Rock Rapids. The Review comments as follows: The continuance is rather favorable to the boy. His attorneys, McMillan & Dunlap, returned from Fairmont this morning and say they have hopes that he may get off with a life sentence. However, the Minnesota law makes anyone who conspires to do an unlawful act, from which the taking of life results, guilty of murder in the first degree. The law has been carried so far that in the Barrett case at Minneapolis, where two brothers agreed to hold up a street car conductor, but in no event to shoot, and where upon the man resisting, the the younger brother, about 19, ran away and took no part in the murder finally committed by the other, both were found guilty of murder in the first degree and hung, Our Iowa law is different in that the conspiracy must be to do bodily injury, as in the case of Haddock; not simply to do any unlawful act. While the Minnesota law makes hanging the penalty of murder in the first degree, a judge may if he believes there are sufficient reasons why capital punishment should not be inflicted, so find and set them forth in the record, thereby suspending the death penalty. The judge's instructions will undoubtedly be that if the defendant conspired to rob the bank, which is admitted, the law makes him guilty pf murder in the first degree; but juries sometimes, because of mitigating circumstances fix a lesser degree, The judge who tries the case, of several convicted before him and liable to the death penalty, has sentenced but one to be hung. f represented as rather in to his fate. He is said not to be defiant or of a braggadaoio spirit, but says he is prepared for whatever happens; talks unconcernedly of the case, and seems not to realize his right to do this independent council, by simply submitting to rules governing burials as the may prescribe for the city c the power of the council beifag claim, limited to that extent. 8EMM.OOA NOTES, HAVE A OEMBTEBY ANYWAT The Livermore Gazette is Ott Phil.
