CATTC1TS. The Courier is not •warranted in the following statement: The repnhlicati* of Kossuth county hare adopted the primary canons system, atirl down in Hnmholdt wrntity where the pri mary system has heen In vogrne some years, the republicans are clamoring for a chatipe. There is no system that will work well so long as so many fellows in the party hare the office itch. There is noclamor in Humboldt eotin- ty for a return to tlie caucus system, although Humboldt's primary election system is open to criticism, in that nominations are made by counting the bulk vote. In Hancock county this same system prevails, and yet we hare it from many leading republicans that they prefer it to tbe old caucus. Every county in this part of tbe state has dig- carded tbe caucus for tbe primary election and the prevailing sentiment i? voiced by the Estberrille Vindicator. •which says: Dickinson county, at their county convention lately, adopted tbe primary election system of nominating 1 county officers. Emmet county has found this system to be very satisfactory since its adoption here and no doabt Dickinson •will flnfl it tbe same way. There is valid objeeiion to nominating candidates for oSc<? l?y merely counting the total roie of tbe couBty cast at the primsri-es- Terras is re B.C advantage ott this p!aa ever tie country, when great iEtsrs?! is z>ot because the vo-lers SLTS sacc« to She polling places ss>£ •vxH mra out is. larger Embark. 3»i3 sari EL olnec- SJeiE eses cr3S tis Siftixsfi tbe TUED pro£ CBS** nr KcBsorut, ti5 si2ii£ ms P^rCi >: •-.

The new plan obviates tiu£, anfl it -will be just BE possible lor the TDter in any ward In Algona, for instance, to express his wishes as TXJ surveyor or supervisor or coroner, as it will be as to treasurer or sheriff. With the primary, also, it will be possible to nominate all candidates at one election, and the necessity for many caucuses will be dispensed with. There is no doubt whatever that a bill will be introduced in the coming legislature making legal provision for primary elections. The result this present year in Polk county was so satisfactory that it was announced that such action would be taken there. The primary election has never, that we can learn, been discarded when once adopted, while the old caucus system now prevails in but few counties. THE Courier is bragging that it is ft tetter republican paper tbnn THE Ur- R t>ES MOTORS. This confirms R suspicion that a lot of good democrat* have been harboring. By the way has anyone seen a word in the Courier about nominating n democrat for the legislature, or a reason given why Mr. Jones should not be elected? If the Courier doe? not support Mr. Jones openly, it will at least do all it can for him quietly, and will hend off any straight-out democrat from being put up to take the democratic vote awny from him. We welcome the Courier's quiet but effective assistance. THE Jefferson Bee rather criticises the Hamilton county delegates for not voting for Shaw inasmuch as they were not instructed for Funk. This is unfair. To our personal knowledge several of the leading men on the Hamilton delegation hud personally identified themselves with Senator Funk's candidacy before Mr. Shnw"? name was mentioned. The Bee certainly does not pretend that congressional district lines are paramount to personal pledges honestly entered into. REVENGE DEFEATS ITSELF. Probably none have won the contempt of the state in so conspicuous measure in late years us the residents of Dickinson county, who attempted to humiliate Senator Punk to satisfy a petty malice born out of local differences. They did not get even the small satisfaction of having contributed to his defeat. Without exception the delegates who voted for other candidates regretted that at the same time they could not officially record their esteem and regard for the stalwart senator. The only response he makes is the following bit of true philosophy, an indication of the breadth and dignity of his strong character: Most contemptible of all God's creatures are the men who live to indulge a spirit of bitterness toward the rest of mankind. The world is full of blessing and sunshine, in which all men may share, but small indeed is the portion for him who feeds on jealousy, feasts on grudges, and plots to hinder tbe progress of other men. In these can exist no spirit of helpfulness, for practical kindness cannot flourish in such soil. Selfishness is the supreme impulse, and in base greed it is assumed that in the race of life prizes may be won by holding back others who are on the course, while strong and manly men are helping their fellows to the point of winning. Men full grown in mind and soul are aware that the poorest investment in the whole range of human endeavor is revenge; that the Wise way is to encourage comradeship with worthy people and leave the rest to God. Granted that a campaign of spite, even against an unworthy person, may result in his dioomfiture, what does it profit a man, after all? Life is so short that men cannot afford to spend their time and warp their better natures in campaigns of hatred while opportunity for well doing is all about. If in eternity punishment is provided for such contemptible meanness the victim of this base habit is the most unfortunate of mankind, for punishment on earth is full and ample. Asleep or awake he baa little comfort, His small soul is doomed to wretchedness for which its small triumphs afford no comfort. Cumulative penalties rob him of God's sunshine, and all the world is as a dismal swamp. He may seek the comforts of religion and mock the mission of the loving Christ with tbe daily prayers of his darkened soul, but for him were is no peace. The blessings of life and the sweet pleasures of friendship are reserved fpi 1 those who indulge not the baser instincts of jealousy w<T revenge, but who give free rein to the noble impulse? Which make for helpfulness and happiness. Mas. JOHNSON BRIGHAM, wife of tbe ?<*• THE Sioux City Journal keeps standing the conflicting statements of Gov. Boies and Fred E.

It is said that a full transcript of tbe testimony in tbe McFariand investigation is to be published and that a genera; raid is to be made upon state management, yiothinp will come of it, because in the first place tbe republican state management has been economical, bonest End efficient, as ibe discussion will fully disclose: and in the second place, because such house cleaning as bus "been needed tbe republicans have "bernn on ubeir own account and have at- tsnaed to.

Jones, an Algona pioneer and popular citizen will represent big Kossuth in the 27th Judge Carr's brother was the man the Palo Alto republicans picked ou for representative. They didn't havi votes enough. The Corwith Crescent's politica platform: For representative of th 75th district, (anybody to beat the Wright county porkers). The Clay-Palo Alto district renomi nated W. W. Cornwall and by resolu tion presented him as a candidate fo speaker of the next house. This wll be Mr. Cornwall's third term, Estherville Republican: Senate Funk comes out of the fray a stronge man than when he entered it. His can vase was dignified and clean, as become the man. He was defeated by a combi nation of circumstances which no man in his position could forestall. He wil yet be Iowa's governor. Whittemore Champion: In our hur ry last week we failed to note the reso lution which was passed at the countj convention, and is a much needed re form, as it does away with " snap cau cuses." It might be well to use the Australian ballot system to proven machine pressure or influence. Rockwell City advocate: The Do Moines Capital thinks that Congress man Dollivor is strictly in it on the re suit of the state convention and that i Governor Shaw should be called upon to appoint a United States senator Dolliver would be the man. Of course that could only happen in the event o the death or resignation of one of the present senators. Dolliver, Forake and Mason would make a great trio to shake up the dry bones of the senate. The State Register has this hopefu announcement: Mr. Pray will not be in Des Moines this fall to take charge of the finance committee. Mr. MoMil Ian said Friday evening the chairman of the finance committee would succeet Mr. Pray, who will be occupied with the duties of his new position. But he had not reached a decision as to whom he would appoint. It is understood i will he a member of the state centra committee. Mr. S. M. Leach is talked of, but nothing definite has been decid ed.

P AND SEAEGT. WALSH. Both Get Good Mention In the Official Reports. Will F. Smith, regimental inspector in his official report pays the Algona soldiers a handsome compliment: Once again has Co. F"s rifle team car ried off the honors, and demonstrated what careful preparation will do upon the field of contest. The trophies were fairly won, and Co. F may be congratu lated upon the splendid score made bj its rifle team—the highest so far tha has ever won the trophies. To all rifle men present the result of this contes must (or should) be a valuable lesson The shooting done by the members o Co. F's team (and some others' demon strated what careful drilling and pains taking work will accomplish. The al most phenominal score made by Ser geant J. M. Walsh, at 500 yards, show much careful thought and study. Hi had no advantage over any other man the range was new to him; the wim and light the same, and there was abso lutely nothing in his favor for malting a better score than others. But he di it simply because he knew how to do it And in a measure this may be said o some few of the other contestants. Th lesson is a good one and worth much ti every rifleman. I may not close thi " rambling report" without making mention of the very generous, open hearted reception given by Co. F in th evening after the contest. Their hand some mess tent was used for this occa sion, and the pleasant conversation an good cheer was enjoyed by all present THE STOBY OF A BOOM. Port Bnrroii Tolls How Al«ona Del cantos Got a Sleeping Place a Cedar Ruplds. The unusually veracious Port C. Bai ron tells the following story. Inas much as Mr. Cowles did the talking t the hotel clerk we are are not prepare to deny or affirm. It is a fact, however that the Pocahontas delegates made thundering and needless noise in th Arcade hotel along in the sleepy hours Here is Port's version: The Pocahon tas delegation to the Cedar Rapids con vention had all kinds of trouble afte reaching that place. They got ther at 4 a. ra. and Col. Kent headed the del egation down the deserted streets t the Arcade hotel, where the Co! claimed, he had secured a large room filled with beds and cots for the entir delegation. Col. Kent, upon reachin_ the office, advanced and gave the cler! a military salute and said, " We ar the people—the Pocahontas delegatioi —and we would be pleased to retire. The clerk replied, "Give us a rest; th Pocahontas delegation reached her- two hours ago and have gone to bed. 1 Col. Kent came near falling down stair in his excitement. The idea of tha clerk telling him that the Pocahontas delegation had gone to bed, when the; were standing in disgusted silenc' around him! The clerk finally consent ed to go up and wake the people wh were passing themselves off as th Pocahontas delegation, hut when he tried to arouse them they were so deac to this world's affairs that dynamite would not phase them. Upon examin ing the hotel register we discovere that the men who were posing as Poca hontas in Cedar Rapids were Harvey Ingham of THE UPPER DES MOINES and Gardner Cowles, an attorney of Al gona. Right here the Record edito wants to say that he hopes to live lon| enough to pay off these gentlemen fo stealing that room. J, F. LAOEY^TWAGON TOUB. Mr. and Mrs. J. V.

The News says: The judge decided to remand the boy to the custody of his mother, who now lives at Engle Grove, until the first of September, and if she is unable to properly manage him, he will then be brought into court and sent to the reformatory. The boy's conduct of late has been such as to afford little hope of reformation. -(--*•-»Mayor Boyle says there is no end of wheat up in his Pipestone country. -5- -i- -5- The Armstrong Journal has the following note about the young people whose marriage in Algona was noted last week: Mr. Frank Dundas and Miss Mary Matthews were united in marriage Tuesday at the Baptist parsonage in Algona, Rev. D. R. Landis officiating. The contracting parties were both born in this township and have lived here all their lives, and consequently need no introduction to the residents of this community. They have been acquainted since childhood and have grown up neighbors. The bride is a daughter of C. B. Matthews and has a large circle of admiring friends. The groom is a son of John Dundas, now of Eatherville, and is engaged in the live stock business and also owns the West Side meat market in partnership with Mr. Matthews. They will make Armstrong their home. The Journal joins their large host of friends in wishing them a long life and a happy journey through life together. THE NEW GROSSING ESTABLISHED. The Trains Will Stop and Let Off and and Take On Passengers South of Ijedyard. As noted last week the state railway commissioners wei'e up inspecting the crossing of the Northwestern and Burlington tracks south of Ledyard. Geo. W. Pangburn was over to represent the petitioners, and the Buffalo Center Tribune says he was assured that a small station house would be put in. The Tribune report is as follows: Messrs Pangburn, Gordon, Secor and Mallory went over to the crossing in Kossuth county Tuesday and had a talk with Railroad Commissioner Dawson, and several officials of the B. C. R. & N., in regard to the establishment of a station at the crossing, and after much parleying they were assured that the trains would not only stop there, but that a waiting room would be built and steps put in from one track to the other. Mr. Pangburn in particular deserves much credit for this, as his efforts have been indefatigable in this matter and he has also spent a considerable amount of time and money, and we should consider that the waiting room is a sort of a monument erected 'to his honor. Now, if Barrickman & Arnett would just take their string of bulls over and move Ledyard, Swea City and Germania down to the crossing some day, it would make a fairly good town, and we might further sug- guest that the town be called "Pangburn." ALGONA GUN OLUB MEET. Mortenson of Brltt Wins First Average—Guy L. Taylor Is Second. The Algona Gun club tournament last week drew a lot of amateur shooters. Among them were Mortenson of Britt, Patch of Hartley, Bierbour of Mankato, Palmer of Lake Mills, the two Henshaws of Okoboji, Junkins of Ledyard, Bird of Fairmount, Steege of Waterloo, Dersel of Marshalltown, Kline and Lee of Spirit Lake, Cory of Lehigh, Dart, Goodwin and Buel of Lu Verne, and Phelps. of Britt, besides such local shots as Smith, Nicoulin, Taylor, Curtiss, Moore, Ash ton, and Lenander and West of Bancroft. Mortenson won the first average, Taylor second, Palmer third, and Henshaw fourth. Palmer won in the live bird contest, making 10 straight. The weather was fine and goodly crowds watched the shooters. Guy L. Taylor had the shoot in charge, and made it pleasant for the visitors, who enjoyed their visit. COUNTY FAIR BUTTEB CONTEST. Every Creamery In tbe County to be llepreeented-A lilg Butter Slaow. One of the new features of the coming county fair will be the exhibit of gallon jars of creamery butter, one to be made by each creamery in the county.

Tbe prizes are $10 for the first and $5 for the second, out tbe real purpose is to incpeaee interest In tbe opunty'e but- The city council will settle the sewer question Friday evening. John A. Hamilton was before it Saturday evening to make a proposal in behalf of the sewer owners, and the council appointed a committee to investigate and report. A special session will finally dispose of the matter and determine the town's policy on the sewer question. It is likely that no better avenue of municipal activity is open than to begin at once to put in sufficient sewers to supply the pressing needs of both sides of town. THE ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS.
