J, • It is not an unfair comment on the gathering in Des Moihes today of dem« ' ocrats, populists and silverites to say it represents all the elements of discontent in Iowa. The delegates agree on only one thing, and that is that they want an overturning. No two county conventions have stated the same grievance. With some it is the tariff, With some silver, with some mulct law, with some state management, with some local taxes. The real watchword of the campaign will be, "anything for a change." This cry is not without its attractions at any time. At the close of several years of business inactivity it has a peculiar charm. The issue in Iowa is will the public return by safe steps to the business principles and prosperity of 1892, or will it again be carried away with a hue and cry for "a change." „ , if U eoutd fed f eatlaftd WOuld" be a's as a proposal to adopt wheel' fat «Bjfejpfl transportation. f MH democrats split squarely {ft the" senate Friday 6tt the tariff issue. Mgh't Southerners came out for protec* tiofl, and some vefy spicy debating fol* lowed.' IB the course of the discussion it was divulged that in the Chicago platform the word "only" aftef the phrase "tariff fof revenue" was dropped purpdsely, leaving the party in the last campaign committed to protection. Senator Tiltman was most vigorous in hitting the free traders. A FEW TABIF! 1 FACTS. Henry Klindt of LuVerne is visiting in Germany, and has written several interesting letters to his home paper, the News. In the present issue is one on the workings of the tariff, as he sees the situation. He says: '"The other day I was in Hamburg watching them loading goods for the United States. When I say that I saw a pile of goods along the docks two miles long, 15 feet high and correspondingly wide, you would hardly believe It, but nevertheless it is a fact and most of it going to the United States. The shipments have been going at that rate for the last four months and ' more, and the steamboat companies haVe to charter all the extra ships they can get to carry the stuff. This is from Hamburg only and now take the shipments fvom Bremen, Antwerp, Havre, Liverpool, etc., •and you can imagine the flood of goods you are getting. Most of these goods could be made just as well in the United States, and give people work and make a better home ' market for our farm products. 1 ' ' Mr. Klindt then comments on the fact that Germany pays an export bounty of 20 cents a hundred pounds for sugar, "killing our infant beet sugar factories in the United States, providing the people in the United States-are foolish enough to let them do it." Mr. Klindt concludes his observations by arguing: "No wonder they are kicking against the Dingleybilli It is high time to pass that bill or else the importers will rush enough goods over there to last for two years and more." Tae state board of control idea will be jeopardized if its friends insist on putting the educational institutions in with the asylums and penitentiaries under one board, We doubt if it is even practicable to have the educational institutions alone under one board. The correct plan is to have one • board for all public institutions but the schools, and give each school a board of three or five members. For the other institutions the duties of the board are largely along the lines of business management. For the schools the duties are largely along the lines of educational advancement. No single board can formulate plans and select instructors for two schools that are in a sense competitors, and deal fairly and satisfactorily by both. _* POLK county can't send a better man to the coming legislature than Geo. H. Carr. The state has no better. THE BASIS OF CREDIT. The Courier, in commenting on, the Chubb-tlPPER DES MOINES discussion, made a statement that should not pass unnoticed. It was to the effect that the only safe basis of credit is to have a dollar in the bank for every dollar checked out. This sounds so plausible that many accept it without thinking and come to wholly erroneous conclusions as to the amount of money needed in business. The Courier, however, has no excuse for such a statement, for it is interested in an Algona bank and knows that such a theory of banking is not only unreasonable but impossible. Its bank has now only 60 per, cent, of it? deposits on band. That is a heavy reserve. If it bad only 40 per cent., or even less, it would be working on an absolutely safe basis, If the Courier's statement wore correct it should have - every dollar deposited constantly on band, which would make banking useless as well as absurd, If the Courier is not satisfied from its own experience in banking that there is nothing In the idea that there " ebowld be an aptual dollar' in existence lor every dollar used in business trans* actions it can safely consult Senator Chubb, E, J, Murt&gh, Tfaos. Sherman pp Frank Welmer, Banking would ; fcftve JJQ pjaoe in the economy of com- weroeifiHid pot facilitate business frjmsfwtions without money, The pur- is to wake ope actual o many dollars of business, vrious, substitutes it wakes all transactions cheaper, e,&9» WE fail to see why the Courier and Republican should simultaneously jump onto W. M. McFarland. Of.allthat is charged to him the worst is that he organized the labor in the census bureau on the "co-operative milking" plan they have so earnestly and eloquently defended. But perhaps they feel as C. L. Lund did toward the ordinary blue sky fence peddlers. MoFarland arranged so that he saved 'only 10 per cent of the wages the public was paying for getting up the census, while the Courier-Republican combination saves 60 per cent, of the wages Kossuth is paying for public printing. Mac. was plainly a bungler as a "co-operative milker." Gov. BOIES will be nominated if he will accept. today gpai$ safer without money.

The roof was all on fire before discovered, and before a sufficient stream of water could be turned on it fell in. The library, consisting of 42,000 volumes, is a total loss. The state pursues the policy of insuring its own buildings, which leaves the university wholly without a library until the legislature acts. One fireman was caught in the flames and burned to death. JUST 30 YEAES AGO. Kossuth had two votes in the republican state convention that nominated Samuel Merrill for governor and Col. John Scott for lieutenant governor on June27, 1867. -*--i--!The editor hears of corn rotting after it had sprouted. This is said to be very rare.

He says; Iowa should do as Kentucky will do, put a democratic ticket in the field and wherever one blow is struck for the Chicago platform strike two for the Indianapolis platform, The Omaha World'Herald recently asked Senator Thurston to write an article OB the question, " Can a politician be a Christian?" Senator Thurston could not find time to write the article, but ih acknowledging the request he said: " As the only republican senator from Nebraska of the party of the administration, and thereby beseiged and overwhelmed with the consideration of claims for office, I am strongly tempted to say that a politician, under such circumstances, cannot be a Christian."

An entertaining war sketch of local interest appeared in the Dubuque Morning Record lately, It is told by Mrs. B. W, Poor of that city and recounts the trials and death of the father of Col. Thos. F. Cooke. Mrs. Cooke was with Mrs. Poor when news of her bus* band's death came, and now, after 80 years, Mrs. Poor recalls all the details of the story. Her sketch is longer than our space permits reprinting. The following paragraphs give a running outline: David G, Cooke was born in Chambersburg, Penn., Sept. 11, 1835. His parents removed to Waukegan, 111., while he was a child, and when he was about fifteen they came to Sabula, la. He learned the trade of a mason, at which he worked till he became of age. Being naturally of a thoughtful and studious turn and religiously inclined, he determined to enter the ministry of the Methodist church. With this purpose he went to Mt. Carroll, 111,, and taught in the public schools, employing all the leisure he could command in the study of theology and the improvement of his talent for speaking by preaching on the Sabbath, either as a supply or in localities where they were unable to support a settled minister. In both these capacities he was aided by an impressive personality. Though a man of medium size his manner commanded attention and his earnestness and sincerity inspired respect. His expressive eyes seemed to read the thoughts of others and to weigh their motives. He was married to Elizabeth Lockey of Dubuque, Oct. 14, 1860. She was a young woman of energy and resolution, qualities which, in her subsequent trials enabled her to bear them with womanly fortitude. In 1861, when the first call for volunteers reached the ears of northern and western men, arousing their patriotism, Mr. Cooke, in common with the students, teachers', authors 1 and professors of those sections of the country felt that the attitude of the south menaced their personal liberty. He had long believed that a curse, at least the curse of consequences, must fall upon his country for countenancing the great sin of slavery. But he realized that his paramount duty was to his wife and child, for whose comfort he must provide. It was not until August,, 1862, that he enlisted in the 92nd regiment at Savannah, 111. Only two weeks later, while the regiment was encamped at Rockford, 111., he was called home by the death of his little son Willie, then ten months old, leaving Mrs. Cooke doubly bereaved. Not long after he was ordered to Kentucky, and remained under Sherman's command till early in 1864. In planning the two great campaigns of the year many changes were necessitated. Mr. Cooke was made second lieutenant of Co. E, Twelfth regiment colored, and they were set to guard the new railroad from Nashville west. The camp was moved to Hespeth river, eighteen miles from Nashville, at Kingston's Springs. On receipt of a letter from her husband, Mrs. Cooke, with her baby boy, set out to join him. Arriving at Nashville she could go no further that night, so crowded were the trains. The hotel also was so full she could get no room. Finally the daughter of the landlord gave her one of two beds in her private room. The next morning she met Capt. Belfield of Dubuque, who put her on a train of flat cars, on which she traveled a part of the way, and the rest in an unoccupied ambulance returning from the conveyance of sick soldiers to the hospital at Nashville, and thus was met by her husband coming to find her, She arrived at Kingston's Springs on Feb. 8,1964, where she remained six months, a period full of incidents that memory cherishes as if they were precious gems, During her journey on the cars there were some officers along and little Tom would climb up behind them and tug at their, shoulder straps. They were not angry, but jestingly said he was "trying to reduce them to the ranks." MUM 1« the Jfext 6te.te Register an»o«oees that « an . -, sent for his son's remains at a still later day. Geo. Fitch lingered for several years, but has lone been numbered with the dead! g Near Mr, Cooke's last resting place is a square shaft, raised to the memory • Thos, B, Lookey, bis brother-in-law $5JSL*"L* 1863, fa, the battle of , , Vloksburg, and was burled the tattl&eld with other from Iowa, The warble fact that HN Q useless bis breast," be is Algols ju.i y? . By reason of marauding "bushwhackers" in their vicinity, the wives of all officers were ordered out of camp to a place of safety, The officers could not be burdened with the care of wives and children, Mrs. Cooke therefore prepared to return to Iowa, The last place they visited together was the grave of ex-President Polk, who Is buried on his own grounds near his house. Mr. Cooke went to the train with his wife and boy, and when be took leave of them Tom cried and struggled to go with him, and when he saw bis father outside be threw hjs hat out of the window and tried to climb out himself. Mr, Cooke picked up the hat and handed it his wife through the open window, saying In a low voice: "I shall never see my boy again." These were his last words to her. The shadow of death was passing over him in a presentiment, the reality was in abeyance, Lieut, Cooke filled from time to time, tant, chaplain, and of judge advocate of cpv»rt*martial, and when the Twelfth regiment eolored was ordered to Nashville be was made acting partermas- Aceorjling to the order of General Thomas the battle of Nashville was op W9& by SteedmiB'e fei«t on the WB« ferrate's right, st« fi ri m »n> a J^ _wbile5 the other suit of the febels under flood. Cooke, Geofge Fitch, Martemaste* bf thS brigade, and DftptftifaPeflfield of Adrian, Mich 1 ., and twd othet officers of the regiment went also with theif respective comtnattde ift pursuit of Hood. They had reached a point between Murffesbofo and Nolensville when the three officers above named decided to stop at a farm house for dinner. The other two declined to stop and warned the three of the danger of doing so. But the man Who has es 4 caped death on the. fiercely contested battlefield begins to feel as if he bore a charmed life, and is brave even to recklessness. The two that Went oh were just in time to get into the union lines. , When they had finished their meal and were settling the bill they dlscov* ered that the house was surrounded by 36 of Forrest's guerrillas. There was no escape. They Were captured and compelled to change clothes with their captors. Knowing their unscrupulous character, they had but little hope. The second day of their captivity, D. G. Cooke asked the captain of the band if he would send a letter to his wife if he wrote one. He promised to do so, but it was never received by her. The letter was written on two pages of a leaf torn from a blank book. Probably it was never sent. On the morning of the third day they began to hope that some accident of war might occur in their favor, especially as they were told that they were to be taken to Forrest's headquarters. But about 4 o'clock that afternoon the men suddenly divided and formed a line on each side of the road, leaving the three prisoners standing abreast across the road. There was no chance of escape. Three men in front of the lines wheeled, raised their carbines and fired upon them. Cook was shot with his own carbine. The ball pierced his temple and he fell as did his comrades. Supposing the three were dead they drew them into the bushes that skirted the road and left them there. Later, by an hour or more, Fitch became conscious but could not tell where he was or how'he came there; but raising himself upon his elbow he saw the dead bodies of his companions and understood what had occurred. Overcome by the sight and by the strange sensation in his head, he fell back and lay not wholly unconscious, 'till as the twilight was falling, he heard the rattling of underbrush and the sound of footsteps approaching. Two colored men had been sent to bury them but Fitch persuaded them to disobey orders and save him, and they conveyed him to the house of an old gentleman who was supposed to be neutral. He, however, E ersuaded them to bring the other odies, and they were laid upon benches outside the house, while Fitch was tenderly cared for inside. That evening three of Forrest's men rode to the house and seeing two of their victims called for the third. Being told he was in bed suffering and probably dying, they said: "Bring him out here and we'll finish him." The old man plead for him, entreating them not to disgrace themselves by such inhuman- as the shooting of a dying man. "He can't live two hours," he said "let him die in peace." So they left, declaring that they would return in the morning and if he was not dead they would attend to him. Fitch heard and determined he would stay there no longer. They rigged him out with a dress- skirt, shawl and sun bonnet, and he went out, he knew not whither. He walked till he was too exhausted to go further and sat down among the trees beside the road, unable to contend against what might be his fate. Before leaving the house he had given the old gentleman the names of his two companions and the address of Mrs. Cooke. The humane old gentleman made boxes and buried the two bodies in his private burying ground and marked their graves with their names. While lying under the tree Fitch saw a man approaching in rebel uniform and carrying a revolver. He proved to be a deserter named Sam Hendricks. He. had heard of Fitch's condition, probably through the old gentleman (whose name I have forgotten) who communicated with scouts when he thought occasion justified it. As the scout drew near he said cheerily, "I've come to save you, old man!"

By various other means he sought to elude the scent of the hounds that might pursue them the next day, Before daybreak he was hidden in some secure place till the scout came again the next night. At one time it was in the loft of a cotton gin, at another in some friendly cabin. In one house where he was concealed the lower part was filled with guerillas who were coming and going all day. From the last place of concealment the scout oouldreaoh Gen, Schofield 'ahead- quarters sixty miles from where they had started on their perilous journey, The general sent a guard to protect him till he arrived within the union lines, He went to the hospital at Nashville, but the ball was lodged back of his ear and could not be extracted. Securing the watch, trunk and other belongings of Mr. Cooke, he returned to Freeport, where Mrs. Cooke visited him and learned the particulars here related. Mr. Cooke's remains were sent six months later and buried at Center Grove in Dubuque county, beside his little Willie.

Col. Raymond is after Algona's onetime evangelist, Cordner.' He says the $300 that he took from Hampton would have started a Y. M, C. A. in good shape. Those who recall the Cordaer meetings here will appreciate the colonel's feelings as expressed in the Recorder: The evangelists, Messers. Cordner and Pugh, left on Monday, the Sunday night services closing their engagement. The meetings will be continued under charge of the local pastors, but we do not know for how long a time. If any of the citizens of Hampton have any, sins or short-comings, their neighbors are certainly not in ignorance of what they are, for they have all been told by Mr. Cordner and painted in vivid colors, too. For the castigation that he has given our community he has been well paid, he and his partner ' carrying off something over $300, besides being feasted and faring sumptuously day and night during then- stay. We do not go so far as to say that his vivid word painting of the sins of our people was all imagination; we presume that some of it at least was truth. We understand that one thing he did say was that it was a shame that Hampton had no Young Men's Christian association. The Recorder had rather give its mite to our own pastors, whose sincerity and faithfulness to the cause they know something about, and who at least spend their money here at home, than to give it to people we know nothing about, and who we do know will go elsewhere to spend it, but we do not want to be understood as not willing to aid a good cause or accept a good suggestion, no matter wbere it comes from. The $300 that these men have just taken out of our toWn would have made a good start towards organizing a Y. M. C. A., but that money is gone, never to return, and the question is now, while the community is full_of enthusiasm and the strings of their pocketbooks are loosened, why not start an association of that kind? Three hundred dollars judiciously expended will put it on its feet and pay the necessary rent for a year in advance. The Recorder will be one of 30 firms or individuals to pay $10 each, making $300 in all, to start a Y. M. C. A. in Hampton. Now we humbly suggest that before this excitement 'is allowed to die down that a move be made in this direction. Who will give the next $10? IT HAS BEEN HOT. TUe Week Averaged 91 Degrees In Alsona-Average Over the State IB Unusual. Weather Clerk Pettibone's records show that the seven days of last week averaged 911-7 degrees. The highest point reached by the mercury was 97, It was hot, everybody knew. But to have every day go above 90 degrees is extraordinary. THE STATE CROP KEPORT. The past week brought seven abnormally warm days, the daily average temperature being from six to seven degrees above the normal. For nine consecutive days at the central' station the daily temperature has been from two to 12 degrees in excess, making & period of phenomenal heat for the month of June. The rainfall has been unusually variable, coming in the form of local showers, some of them accompanied by severe wind squalls and considerable electric force, The amount of moisture is sufficient for present needs in about three-fifths of the area of the state, the balance is suffering to some extent from protracted dry weather, All reports indicate that corn has made rapid advancement wherever /it 1 has received good culture and the so» conditions are favorable. The chief drawback to this crop is that the stand is generally below the average, and this cannot be fully remedied. The color Je good, but the plants are gen* erally below the seasonable height and normal condition. Wheat, oats, barley, and grass are doing fairly well in the larger part of the state.
