Algona has never listened to a more scholarly oration than was given Sat' urday by Judge Ladd of the supreme court. He has a magnificent presence, and his voice, while not deep, la penetrating. His enunciation was distinct and of the thousands present very many wore able to hear. In opening he said that in a land just fairly redeemed from primeval wildness we were able to understand the struggles and triumphs of the forefathers. Then paying a tribute to the hardihood and energy of the pioneers, he commented on the fact that they worked in a land with-held for ages from the use of man. "In concealing the fairest portion Of earth's surface from mankind for centuries Providence must have had some great purpose, some mighty design; and may we not in humble faith believe, aye more than believe, that that purpose is being wrought out in the development of this republic." Speaking of the day that was being celebrated, he said it was FOB ALL PEOPLES. "This day then—the anniversary of the most important in all history—save only the coming of Jesus Christ—while peculiarly American, in the larger sense, belongs to no nation or race, but is consecrated to the universal brotherhood of man. Wherever the name of freedom is lisped, wherever liberty has votaries there the oppressed of the earth bless the establishment of our institutions. Sighs for freedom on the lonely wastes of Sibera, from the darker dungeons of Europe, from the slave pens of Africa, from beneath the galling yoke of political bondage everywhere are heard around the world today, and, while causing monarchy to tremble on their distant thrones, inspire every free man to more highly resolve a more supreme devotion to the principles of universal liberty—universal equality. As American citizens, • we welcome to participation in the festivities of this anniversary the sable sons of Africa who gave so many years of unrequited toil to this country and whose every murmur was answered by the lash. We welcome the downtrodden and oppressed of all the nations of Europe—the Irishman in the name of Emmet whose blood was sacrificed for independence, the Swiss in the name of Tell and Winldereid whose names are monuments of liberty wherever spoken, the German in the name of De Kalb, and the Frenchman in the name of Lafayette who aided our forefathers in the revolution, the Scandinavian in the name of Gustavus Adolphus who established religous' liberty in the 30 years' war, the Englishman, in the name of the old barons who forced Magna Charta from King John at Runnymede and began the long contest for the rights of men as against the tyrrany of kings. We welcome all men in the name of Kosciuszco in whose death freedom lost her noblest champion. As citizens of the republic let the battle fields and triumphs of the old world be forgotten and all men unite in giving this day to America—her institutions, her achievements, her destiny " found ftn thebofch ofadftjr laborers house at the village of Merrill and the little abandoned one was fortunate in obtaining the loving care of foster parents, even though in a house of poverty 1 : In the same paper wasthe account of the birth of a male child to the Asters of Kew Ydrk City inheriting an estate theh estimated to be of the value of 20.000,000 of dollars.

In the course of a hasty review of our history as a nation he paid' eloquent tribute to the HEROES OF '61, "It is often stated that nothing should be said of the civil war on a day like this. If those who established our government did well, those heroes who saved it are not to be forgotten, Into the issues raised by the rebellion of the southern states we staked not alone our personal liberties, not alone the property interests of one generation, not alone the fire alters, of the republic, not alone the liberty of the slaves, but we and destiny there staked the precious results Of ages of struggle toward liberty, Into that struggle were poured all the tears of millions who in past ages had longed for liberty but died in bondage, Into that issue went the heroism of all the martyrs who dared to believe more than oppression would allow, All the struggles of the centuries for human liberty were fought over again, It was for our northern armies to say whether all these precious fruits, slowly maturing through the ages were to be handed baol? and exchanged for the old trap- •nipes of oppression. And our armies answered. They answered in the camp fires that blazed around Kennesaw, and the flame of musketry that lighted the summit of Missionary Ridge and Lookout mountain, They answered with a shout pf victory.

But P question whether the results of the discoveries of the hidden forces of nature the marvelous inventions of man and the uses of labor saving machinery—all in great part at least the common heritage of man-kind —have been fairly distributed to the masses. It is said by the economists that if every mature citizen of this country would labor with brain or brawn fiye hours each working day and receive the just reward of his labors all could and would have the necessities and comforts of life with the remaining 10 hours for rest, recreation and self improvement. The traditions of this country render the establishment of an aristocracy of birth impossible. Knowledge is the common heritage of mankind, so that an aristocracy of education is an irridescent dream. But the concentration of great wealth in the hands of the comparatively fe\v and the ingenuity displayed in keeping it there may warn you, my countrymen, of the dangers of an aristocracy of wealth. Many like George W. Chllds have devoted riches, accumulated by the genius of enterprise, for the amelioration of humanity. Others have used sweet charity as a shield from popular sentiment. Two years ago Rockafeller donated $2,000,000 to the University of Chicago in the interests of education and afewmonthslater, under the euphonious name of oil corner filched $60.000,000 from the pockets of the American people. I would not advocate but rather condemn all species of anarchism and those principles of socialism which would deprive any individual of the just fruits of labor and enterprise, or limit the legitimate scope of his faculties in any way. But I would warn against the insidious encroachments of vast wealth and its kindred evils. -European civilization is that of great wealth and abject poverty. We must profit by its lessons. We must insist upon the just reward of labor and enterprise; the widest scope of legitimate individual exertion; the punishment of those stealing millions, however manipulated, as common thieves; the protection of society by inheritance laws from the perpetuity of vast estates—granting exclusive privileges to none, equal privileges to all, fostering the best oppoi-tunities of individual growth and encouraging individual development everywhere. Never before has there been such a demand for men who can look beyond the exigencies of the hour and calmly estimate what the future shall bring forth— men who think and act as patriots rather than as partisans," • THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT. "In the oncoming century, hand-in- hand with our material progress as a nation will appear a mental awakening and excellence equalling, I believe surpassing, that of any other period in history. And as I stand here methinks I can catch a glimpse of the future, a vision of things that shall be, of our country with plenty streaming from its borders the light . of truth shining from its mountain tops, leading the nations of the earth "marching to the music of the Amei'ican drum, beat," on to the millenlum of plenty arid of everlasting peace, Truly it has been said we live Then buy Spragtie, Warner & Co/s " Diamond Brand" of Java and Mocha Coffee, Unrivaled Baking Powder, j Perfection Extracts.
