The next move will be for various modifications of the mulct law. fcew bill if it is to become operative." Never fear, a" good cleati job" will characterize it if Iowa is ever foolish enough to isdbptit." The Sioux City Journal says the liquor manufacturing bill is supported by "a large preponderance" of the republicans of the state. It is singular, then, that it could barely get enough republican votes to get through, with all the democrats for it. E. E. Johnson has been recommended by Congressman Dolliver for the Rockwell City postofflce. Mr. Johnson edits one of the best of northern Iowa's good newspapers, and if he makes as good a Nasby as he does editor, Rockwell City can congratulate itself. WM. M. McFARLAND, late secretary of state, is badly smirched by the report of the census examining committee at Des Motnes. The evening the report Was mode he fell on his door step, seriously injuring his head. He is still unable to be up or to make any explanations. It is charged that he paid clerks $3 a day and took a rebate of frota $10 to $30 a month from their salaries. Also that clerks were paid double salaries. The report is work has cost $37,000 to the state should have been done for $12,000. that that IN THIS MtOfiBORHOOD, Rev. Innes preached at Burt Sunday. The new Britt creamery will be built of brick. Wesley is getting ball nine. up a cracic base THE ENTENTE CORDIALE. It is with sincere regret that UPPER DBS MOINES finds its attention drawn away from the newspaper war at Des Moines to what amounts >to a fra- tracidal conflict here at home. It is grieved beyond expression that the Courier and Republican have decided to quit each other's bed and board, that is, if they really have. They have been cohabiting so long that we have become accustomed to the relationship, a relationship so intimate that part of the time it is difficult to tell which is which, so intimate in fact that we find the same type in the same article appearing in both papers. We have watched with solicitude to see if the well worn path between the rear doors of the two offices, along which Ike carries the Courier type to the Republican and Will carries the Republican type to the Courier, has been boarded up, and feel somewhat eased to report that up to going to press it is still open. We live in the hope that while Brothers Starr and Hinchon have their little tilt out, Ike and Will will maintain those brotherly relations in the matter of type, which for some years have added so much to reducing the wages of labor in both offices. The public generally may not understand the really fratracidal character of this conflict. The public may not know that on all county work, city work, etc., each office sets up half, and that the type is carried back and forth, both offices getting full compensation, while getting out of paying the wages which .the county and city ostensibly are providing for. Bro. Starr has been indiscreet enough several times to refer to the state printing as a sinecure. THE UPPER DES MOINES would have let it pass, however, but for this apparent intention of cutting the throat of a sinecure, out of sight in comparison. What sinecure could equal two offices drawing from $70 up each for publishing the treasurer's report for the county one week when only one office sets it up, and the other would be only too glad to sell the space for $5? What sinecure in the state equals drawing full legal rates for county board proceedings, city proceedings, merchants advertising, etc., when all it costs to do the work is to walk across the street to the other shop for the type, getting rid of paying wages and leaving labor out of employment. THE UPPER DBS MOINES tenders its best services to heal the breach, It has to pay help for all the type that appears in its columns, and it knows that it is a burden. It hopes that the Courier and Republican will avoid the p mistake, The county is rich and don't pare whether the offices earn what it pays or not, and they might as well go >pn. drawing full pay for half work, ^ This }s a bad year to employ help, and | s |^y§n if labor would like employment, It^wfeftt is the use of being forced into it '-'-' "••<-" g little row over a religious meet- r, Again, brethren, cease this bickering and get to business, pr the public believe that in addition to exohang' Evangelist Gardner is at Forest City holding meetings. Rod Jain of Portland is visiting his brother at Hatnley, Ind., the Monitor says. The Leader says Miss Lou Smith of Algona has begun a spring term of school near Ledyard. The Hampton Recorder says the Belmond extension to Algona may go in as railway business revives. C. A. Babcock, who married Dr. Garfield's neice, Aggie Garfield, is editing a "Unitarian Column" in the Sanborn Sun. Emmetsburg Reporter: Mrs. Lida Cole of Algona came over Monday evening to spend a few days with Mrs. J. P. Crose. Eagle Grove Gazette: Miss Lydia Southwell returned Friday from a week's visit with her uncle's family at Algona. One Humboldt merchant sold $2 worth of paper balloons. Al. Adams says that accounts for the air ships down there. The Armstrong Journal says: No officer in the state attends more strictly to the performance of his duties than Mr. Dele van. Sanborn Sun: H. W. Walston, Esq. of Algona is visiting his children in Sanborn this week. He is greeted by many warm friends. The Catholic school at Wesley has 120 students, from Minneapolis, Mason City, Ackley, etc. The Reporter says it is a good school. Gerraania Standard: Rev. Geo. W. Southwell is making a vigorous effort to build a fine new church at Algona this year. Put it down that he will succeed. Estherville Republican: Hon. A. C. Han kin has been employed to deliver a course of temperance lectures at Algona. Thought that was a "temperance town." Vinton Eagle: Algona has appointed a committee to look up the street lighting question. We would advise it to come to Vinton and see our electric light system. Buffalo Center Tribune: Algona is again agitating the electric light question and will no doubt make it a go this time. Algona is too good a town to remain in darkness much longer. Chas. Grimm is home at Clear Lake from a big eastern shooting tour, in which he was uniformly successful. The Mirror says he has gone to Lincoln. Neb., and other western cities to shoot. Emmetsburg Democrat: About 50 Algona citizens think that from $300 to $500 is not too heavy a fine for violating the prohibitory law, but that a fine of $25 is an awful penalty for violating the state fish laws, cars on the Valley road could not get nearer than within two miles of the city, the tracks being entirely submerged.

SEMI-LOOAL HEWS NOTES, Petitions have been circulated in Buffalo Center for a junction at the Northwestern and Burlington crossing north of Bancroft. The Tribune says: "This is a much needed improvement and we hope tho roads will see fit to comply with the petition without our being compelled to turn the matter over to the railway commissioners at Des Moines." The matter ought to be pushed along both lines. -£ -4- -f- The Emmetsburg Tribune bubbles over with items about our fishermen. Here are a few samples: The fact of Algona having three such excellent papers may be explained by the love of fish as a diet by the inhabitants of that town. They are bound to have "fish food,"even if it does come high. The editors, of course, don't have to fish to eat fish. Among the Algonians pulled for spearing fish a week or two ago were a money leaner, a railway agent, an alderman and a banker. It being press day the newspaper men were not in the push. This is the first big catch of suclcers for the season. Tho surprise is that such a discreet town as Algona should have so many law-breakers for citizens. Among the offenders are some of the most prominent citizens of that town. •*• -s- -p- Judge Ladd of the supreme court is to judge a gold medal declamatory con- MIL ANGUS ON TAXATION, mam to MOB: w fits Thinks taxes Are Too High, Considering trices ior Produce— The Salary Question. lest at Sanborn the prize. this week and award - ing 1 type on county and city work, ad vepr , ypu are trading editorials, The Cpurier has already Wesley Reporter: J, J, Cosgrove has gone to Algona to take a three- months' course in the normal school.

Mathews, two blocks west of the State bank. We understand he intends to build a large residence this summer and move up here. The West Bend Journal says the Emmetsburg gasoline lights are the thing; After a plant is once in operation it costs less than one-half cent per hour to run one burner, and six burners would make the largest store room in West Bend as light as noonday. Bailey; S. D. Drake of Algona is one of the best life insurance men that visit this section, but he did not write a risk for Attorney Aldridge. Aldridge saw him coming and cooking a revolver he backed into a corner and as Drake stepped in the door a sepulchral voice met him with, "Don't want any." Drake looked at him and exclaimed, "Neither do I," s Bailey: TheWhittempreoorrespond- ent of the Algona Courier wants us to look up the John Shaible matter a little.

Baumgartner, the hog cholera man who talked at the farmers institute in Algona, is still working- with the railway companies. In Ida county he was called to treat a drove of razor backs imported from Texas and which were five days on the road without water. The owner supposed that the animals had cholera. Mr, Baumgartner promptly discovered that they had not. Mr. Baumgartner says that if farmers would save themselves from loss they must stop buying hogs in Texas, or else be more careful about the animals they purchase. 4- -7- -*John Bennett of the Emmetsburg Re- Ol'tftr WAnt nvm» f-.n iriaur fV,« «~ -*..__ porter went over to view the new city well.

They pale into insignificance by the side of the Iowa girl raised in the pure invigorating air of the matoh- BURT, March 30.—To the Editor: In your issue of March 17 you allude to my statement in the Grange meeting about taxes in this county having gradually increased until now they are nearly double what they formerly were, and you rather question the truth of what I said. In the few remarks I made I said that when I came here the county was very thinly settled and that I thought at that time that as the county became developed and more tbickly settled and property increased in value that taxes would not get any higher, That as more people came in they would help to pay the taxes, and in support of that statement I made the remark that instead of the taxes on land remaining the same they were just about double. Now then for the proof of what I said. You refer to the northeast quarter of Sec. 20. Well, for the first few years I only owned 120 acres of that quarter. My first tax receipt, which I have, is dated April 21, 1884, and shows that my land was valued at $4.75 per acre and that the taxes levied were 20i mills on the dollar, and the valuation of the three forties was just $573, and the taxes levied exclusive of road tax was just $11.88. Now, how is it for the year 1896 on the same land? First I find that the total tax is raised from 20f mills to 25 1-5 mills on the dollar and that the valuation is raised from $573 to $761.25, and the tax on the same piece of land is $19.17, an increase of $7.29 on 120 acres, and in that year I had no personal taxes to pay. The sum total of my taxes exclusive of road taxes for that year was $29.42, while for the year 1896 the first half amounted to $32.25. All that I said was that there seemed to be a leak somewhere,' and what we want to do is to find out where it is and stop it. It is not altogether on account of schools in our township, as I find the increase for school purposes is only four mills on the dollar. I furthermore said that in my estimation we could get equally as good service from our county officials on a salary of from $1,000 to $1,200 per year, and in proof of that I call your attention to the remarks of some of the present county officials, that it costs so much to get the office that they ought to have a good big salary. As you say, it may be quite a tempest in a teapot, but the start ought to be made. Now I know that in the campaign of last year the farmers were told that if prices for all kinds of produce were low that evei-ything we bought was on the same level, that a dollar now would buy as much of the necessaries of life as two dollars formerly would. That being the case why don't the same rule apply to our public servants? Will not $1,000 buy as much and go as far as $2,000 formerly wduld? What is sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander. How does it apply with taxes? Take my own for instance, as you seem to be fond of quoting me. One hundred bushels of oats would have more than paid my taxes the first year I came here, while for this year it would require over 500 bushels for the land tax alone, and yet you tell us our taxes are merely nominal and we should not complain when we find that as our ability to pay decreases the amount increases. As you say, the amounts paid our county officials may cut but a small figure, but don't lot us stop with them. We find that the tendency is toward greater and more extravagance and larger pay for all kinds of public officials. We find them banded together and sending men to the legislature to try and get their salaries raised still higher. Three years ago I believe it was the boast of Iowa that we had no state.debt, while today, with nothing to show for it, we nearly a two himself and paid over the money, Rose getting $300 and Charley $700. Since then the title of the legatees under the will has beeti finally established. Hose Piumley has nothing and Charley has his one-third. Now Rowe comes into court and sets up that he intended to buy Charley's interest in the land as legatee, and that he wants his deed reformed, and wants Charley's one-third interest duly assigned to him for his $1,000. It is ah interesting question. Is his deed from Charley as "heir at law" good for Charley's interest as legatee? Rowe's papers were filed at this term of court and the argument on them will be a May term. feature of the million dollars, and we will be lucky if it isn't two millions by the time our present legislature gets through with its monkeying with the code, which was entirely uncalled for except by a few of the lawyers and corporations. Who gave the code revisers the right and authority to change the wording or meaning of a single law? Their business was to classify not change the laws, if I understand it aright. The people will always have the opinion that there is something rotten in the State of Denmark when debt is piled up in the state and nothing to show for it. AEBOK DAY AT WESLEY, Wesley Will riant ttrees Friday- News Notes Over East* WESLEY, April 19—Arbor day will be observed here by our public schools. A good program has been prepared and a good time can be expected. The Northwestern Grain company, which used to be the Wesley Elevator company, is building an elevator at Hutchins. H. C. Price of this place has the contract of putting it up. J, S. Gallagher, who has been visiting friends at Madison, Wis., for the past two weeks has returned home. Easter was observed at the Methodist church Sunday. The program was a good one and was well rendered, The day was devoted entirely to the missionary cause. Geo. Poison and Jack Norton drove over from Buffalo Center Saturday to renew old acquaintance here. Seeding has progressed very rapidly in this vicinity during the past few days. The drying winds we have had Saturday and Sunday helped to put the ground in good shape. DOLLIVEK VS, BEYAN. Our Hopeful Democratic Brethren 111 Rock Jtnpltls Would Like a Debate. The democratic Rock Rapids Review says: " A joint debate between Dolliver and Bryan is suggested to take place at Spirit Lake this summer. The Algona UPPER DES MOINES guarantees to produce Dolliver for the event if Bryan can be secured. As these men were in congress at the same time, Mr. Bryan would cram Dolliver so full of the hitter's ^own silver sentiments, as expressed in congress before he experienced the change of heart to hold his job, that Dolliver would tumble into the lake and beg the fishes to feed off him. And a lot of people would like to go over from here to watch them feed." How would it be to bring on Mi- Bryan and do less predicting? It will be time enough to arrange for fish bait after the debate is over. The only time Dolliver and Bryan met in congress was in the tariff debate, and Dolliver drove the young Nebraskan into the cloak rooms in 20 minutes. KELLIHAN WAS CALM. Tho Death Sentence Does Not Phase Him—Stolid and Indlferent. Judge Quinn sentenced Lew Kellihan to be hung Aug. 12. The Fairmont Sentinel says that when sentence was pronounced Kellihan seemed to look pale, and the natural supposition was that he was worried, but Deputy Sheriff Ward said he was not at all affected, but his apparent paleness was due to a fresh shave. He did not display a particle of nervousness. His attorney, McMillen, will try to save his neck yet. The Rock Rapids Review, published at Kellihan's home, says: Lew is said to have experienced religion very strongly since his incarceration and talks feelingly and earnestly on the subject. To friends in Rock Rapids he has written the strongest religious letters in which he admonishes them not to do wrong, to follow God and be happy. He says the happiest time in his life is now, when he has turned his heart to Christ and that if he should have to die at one his last hour would be his happiest. ^ ANOTHER WEST BEND INVENTOK. tat•Weil Known i^otoa i* eopl6 Extensive Losers.
