But is has picked tip somewhere a former statement of Mi*. Bryan's about what has caused low prices, and it hopes that some of its free-silver friends will in strict privacy show it to Mr. Bryan when he is in town and ask him what he thinks about it. Possibly he can be persuaded to refer to it in his public speech, which will add a local color to his remarks. On March 16, 1892, Mr. Bryan in a speech in congress said: " You must attribute it to the inventive genius that has multiplied a thousand times, in many instances, the strength of a single arm, and enables us to do with one man what fifty men could not do fifty years ago. That is what has brought down prices in this country, and everywhere." Mr. Bryan may feel more of an interest in explaining this statement, in view of the local campaign in Iowa, if the corroborative statement of Fred. E. White's is added to it. Mr. White said: "Let me tell you wlio it is that is responsible for this universal blessing of lower prices, who are the public benefactors, and who are entitled to our everlasting gratitude. It is the mechanic who lias the mental capacity to evolve an idea — an idea which materializes in the shape of a new machine, or in an improvement upon an old one. That is the secret of our marvellous success. That is what has enabled us to multiply a hundred and in some instances a thousand fold our mechanical power, and hence our productive capacity. The reason things sell lower than formerly is because they are made cheaper, and they are made cheaper because of better, superior methods and processes employed in their manufacture." Will some of Mr. Bryan's friends please have him make plain how it is that the fall in prices in the last thirty years has been due to-silver demonetiz- ation, and what he and Mr. White meant five years ago in apostrophizing inventive genius, and what Mr. White meant by "the blessing of low prices" and "our everlasting gratitude" to those who have brought them about? mary system in a general Way and providing that steps be taken to put it into operation next year. The delegates from outside vigorously opposed this resolution and it was voted down. The Irvington resolution was then adopted by unanimous vote, and Thos. F. Cooke as chairman of the committee reported it to the convention. Here the resolution was amended by cutting off the specific instruction feature of it, but it was still left in that candidates should be voted for at the primaries, which would in effect be an instruction, as everyone can readily see. County Chairman Wadsworth had nothing to do with the resolution from beginning to end. He simply obeyed it after it was adopted by the same convention which gave him his authority to act. The rules for holding the primaries were calculated to put the resolution into working order, and were drawn up in conjunction with the committee appointed by the convention-for that purpose, and were in the main copies of like rules in use in other counties, the committee having at once secured such copies after being appointed. The attempt to prejudice the primary election plan by making such statements as the Standard and News do is exceedingly unfair, and the attempt to prejudice Algona republicans by such statements is not only unfair but also ungenerous. veritable old St. George and the dragon in his virtuous efforts to resist the Algona banks and the editor of THE UPPER DBS MOTNES, when in fact both the then Algona banks supported George, the issue of depositing funds in outside banks was not raised till later, and the editor of this paper never had a moment's conversation with him or any other candidate for treasurer before or since about depositing the county funds.

HERE Is what the Des Moines Leader, at present Fred. E. White's ablest champion in Iowa, says of Bryan's attempt to force free coinage to the front: " Mr. Bryan is not a resident of Iowa, and, therefore, but cursorily familiar its political conditions. Moreover, with he is a doctrinaire enamored of one issue, and, according to the usual operations of human nature, disposed to magnify its importance. If he were more intimately acquainted with the state, or if he were not a single hobby rider, he would hardly claim democratic success in Iowa this fall would be a straight-out silver victory, implying the election of a silver congressional delegation next year and the triumph of free silver in 1900." KOSSUTH'8 B. F. WRIGHT. The Courier has not referred to the fact that the democrats at Charles City have nominated B. F. Wright, who calls himself the father of prohibition, for the legislature. It would seem that by strongly endorsing this nomination over east our esteemed contemporary could better pave the way for its program in Kosauth of getting an ex-republican of high tariff and anti-saloon proclivities nominated. Something will have to be done of this kind or the old-time and straight-out democrats, who have got to furnish the votes this fall as usual, are going to be taken unpleasantly by surprise. It requires timely warning to give such men as B. F. Wright a really enthusiastic democratic reception. The Courier is also neglecting to suggest which of the ex-republicans it has in view, and as the convention comes in two weeks, the cue ought to be given. Mr. Farley of Whittemore has been most named, but it is rumored that Mr. Bacon of Burt is a possibility, some of the democrats taking the position that if they are to swallow a high tariff prohibitionist it might as well be one of pronounced record, while others want Horace Mann because he had courage enough when he left the republicans to call himself a democrat. The question is, who is Kossuth's B, F. Wright? KEEP HISTORY STRAIGHT. The Germania Standard says of the primary election resolution: "After all, Mr. Hanpa is built of about the right kind of material. If a few more would sit down on the high-handed proceed- ures of the county seat fellows there would be less of it." The LuVerne News comments on this and says: " Right you are. Those fellows up there get altogether too funny and want to run everything. That call for the primaries is a sample of their work, but it didn't work in LuVerne and otuer towns should pay no attention to it." Such statements as these make the real history of the resolution of interest. It was written by C. B. Hutobtns of Irvington and was introduced by him in the Irvington caucus, where it was adppted. It was brought by the Jrvington delegation to the convention and presented by them to the com' mittee on resolutions. This committee was made up of one man from each pre- cioot in the <?o«nty, LuVerne, Get- BHiBift, and alHhe rest having repre< gen,j5a;tiop. After it was introduced the Alf ojta m,emb,erB of the committee pb- $o having the resolution go into ' POLITICAL NOTES. Dolliver is to open the republican campaign in Scott county Oct. 2. Capital: This is not an off year in Iowa. A victory for free silver would be a victory for unsound money and for Bryan in 1900. Bryan's election in 1900 would be a calamity. Bryan speaks at Charles City tomorrow morning, and is at Mason City at 1:30 in the afternoon. He was expected to stop also at Clear Lake. He reaches Algona to speak in the evening. Bancroft Register: The withdrawal of all candidates for supervisor except Olson of Swea City and Barton of Lu- Verne assures the northwest corner the supervisor to which they have long been entitled. The republican campaign will open at Creston, Saturday. Candidates Shaw and Milliman will speak. A long list of brilliant republicans will be there. Congressman Dolliver is on for one of the leading speeches. The Swea City Herald endorses Ole Oleson very highly. It has known him 18 years, and ought to know. It says he will make a number one supervisor. THE UPPER DES MOINES endorses what the Herald says. W. A. Chipman makes a suggestion to the Burt Monitor. It is that hereafter candidates announce themselves to the county chairman and that he notify all the republican papers in the county, who shall make a one-line announcement at a rate of 50 cents apiece. The Carroll Herald thinks that the silver issue has not been a failure for Bryan, in the light of Dolliver's statement that Mr. Bryan now gets $1,200 for a lecture that he delivered for $40 eighteen months ago. The price of lectures, like the price of wheat, does not seem to follow the price of silver. In Ruth yen the tax levy for teachers alone is 41 mills. The other levies are school house 10 mills, contingent 19 mills, corporation tax 10 mills, and for bonds 2 mills, a total of 82 mills aside from 17.4 mills county and state tax, or a grand total tax of 99 4-10 mills. And yet we expect Ruthvenites can be worked up to a high pitch of excitement over the " extravagance in state management-" all of which comes in the 2 9-10 mills of state tax. Al. Adams has the republican nominees at the bead of his columns in the Humboldt Independent. He says some may think the ticket is just like the ticket in republican papers, and adds: This may be true. As we look at it, it does appear like it and read like it. We can't help that. It is the one our editor helped to nominate and the one he will ido what he can to help elect when election comes. The men are all good men and as the county and state will elect republicans any-how, it might as well be made unanimous. Bailey says in the Britt Tribune that under the primary election system the towns have an advantage over the country because the voters are so much more convenient to the polls and will turn out in bigger numbers. That is under the full primary plan as it exists, in Hancock. But as proposed in Kossuth it makes no difference how many or how few turn out to a primary, the pricinot has its full representation in the nominating convention. None of the arguments against the full-fledged primary are good against the plan proposed in Kossuth, which is the plan adopted in Polk county. But even in Hancock county the voters do not want to return to the old stand-up and knockdown snap caucus system. Geo. E. Boyle of Whittemore continues his personal reminiscences of the great campaign of 1389. In so far as he deals in facts it will be a valuable contribution to pur political history. But George belongs to the romance school and is possessed of a vivid imagination, and from a somewhat Inti.tnate acquaintance with matters he. deals within Will be a feature of the coming county fair at Algona, Sept. 28, 29, 30, and Oct. 1. there is little hope of recovery. His many Algona friends will extend sympathy. Burt Monitor: Cowles & Murtagh have bought the J. A. and Joseph Cunningham lands in Buffalo township, Geo. E. Marble of Burt has been patenting several new devices and will devote his time to selling territory, etc., soon. Sam Hutchison has been sick in bed at Whittemore. He will go to California with his sister Rose as soon as he get well enough, the Champion says. Corwith Crescent: W. H. Reed of Algona was at Corwith the forepart of the the week. He expressed himself surprised at the thrift of the town, and said he saw more grain coming into Corwith in the few days he was here than he had seen at Algona in the same number of months. Clear Lake Mirror: A. Hulbert of Algona, who was here Monday to see about disposing of his property, was talking to Deacon Freeman about going to California, and said he would leave Algona Wednesday and be in Los An- creles Sunday. The deacon said he went to California before the war and was on the road between three and four months. Great changes in 40 years! A DRUNKEN SPREE. Sunday In Plum Creek Is Desecrated By a Dunce Row. One Albert Kropske, who lives in Plum Creek, gave a beer dance Sunday. Geo. Devine, Jo Jensen, and Albert Rahm participated and in the end knocked Kropske 'down and seriously injured him. Mrs. Kropske fainted, but was not struck as at first reported. The boys were arrested and brought before the justice at Sexton, but Krop- slfe failed to appear against them and they were let off. n.gu,n.ce Jt essentially fiotjojaftl George pictures hitRself MB a Mr. Hnle Was To the Editor: Smith, Brown, and Hinchon, with their sons, Adam, Paul, and Will, each own a tract of land in square form. Mr. Smith's tract is 23 rods longer on a side than Paul's, and Mr. Brown's is 11 rods longer, on a side than Adam's. Each man has 63 square rods more than his son. Find the full names of the boys; that is whether Adam Smith, Adam Brown, or Adam Hinchon. By the conditions of the problem, one side of Smith's tract of land equals one side of Paul's plus 23 rods, and one side of Brown's land equals one side of Adam's plus 11 rods. Since the tracts of land are all square* we have Will's squared plus 63 square rods, Paul's squared plus 63 square rods, and Adam's squared plus 63 square rods, each a perfect square. By making a table of squares of numbers we find that the only squares whose difference is 63, are land 64, 81 and 144, 961 and 1024. Hence, the tracts of land belonging to the boys Adam, Paul, and Will must be 1, 9, and 31 rods on a side, and the tracts of land belonging to the men Smith, Brown, and Hinchon must be 8, 12, and 32 rods on a side. To satisfy the equation as stated at the beginning, Smith's equals Paul's plus 23 rods, Smith's must equal 32 and Paul's 9 rods on a side. From the same reasoning Brown's must equal 12 rods and Adam's 1 rod on a side. Since each man has 63 square rods more than his son, Hinohon and Adam must be father and eon, because we have found that Adam's land, was 1 rod on a side, and the only combination to get a difference of the squares or tracts of land to be 63 square rode, is to use Hinchon's as 8 rode on a side. So with Brown's as 12 rods on a side and Paul's 9 rode on » side, we get a difference of 68 square rods, and Smith's 82 and Will's 31 rods on a side, we have a difference of 63 square rodg, Hence we find the names of the boys to be Adam Bina^d. WM Smith. A! iJ< Isenburth and Mrs. Cochran of Prairie township were going home from town their team ran away and threw them out of the buggy breaking Mrs. Cochran's arm. Dr. Kinney was called and set the broken bone. Quite a number of our citizens are talking of going to Algona Thursday evening to hear what W. J. Bryan may have to say. Among the number is Welt Miller. Some of the boys don't think it's safe for Welt to go as there is danger of his backsliding from the republican party. But we have all faith in Welt's conversion, for anyone that has had true republican truth pounded into him us Miller has in the past year can never go back to the democratic party. G. B. Hall and S. L. Eastman returned from Vermont Saturday, where they have been visiting their old home for the past month. Rev. C. E. Plummer closed a three years' pastorate of the Methodist church here Sunday night and took his departure Monday morning to Ida Grove to attend conference. Rev. Plummer's services here for the past three years have been very satisfactory both to himself and to the church, which has increased in membership and in spirituality under his ministry, and he goes to conference leaving many warm friends both in the church and out that are wishing that he may be returned for another year. Rev. Plummer has wonderful ability and the day is not far off when he will be one of the best in the conference. While we hope to have him returned, if he is not the charge that he may be sent to can congratulate themselves that they have received an able minister, a true Methodist, and Christian gentleman. His last years work here has been very successful in remodeling the church which is now a credit to any town, and if be is not returned he can look back with just pride on his work accomplished here. TEE NEW STEEL BRIDGE. The Contract IB Let for a Ueauty—It Will Go In at Once at the Blackford Crossing. The county board met Monday and talked with 16 bridge men of all degrees. Plans were agreed upon for the new bridge over the river west of town during the forenoon and in the afternoon the bridge men figured on their bids. The bridge is to be one span of 120 feet, supported on two steel tubing piers at each end, with 16-foot road way, carrying a live load of 1,280 pounds to the lineal foot. The following bids were submitted: Geo. 0. Wise & Co »1,700 J.P. Marsh 1,774 Plttsburg Bridge Co 1,601 Marahalltowu Iron Works.. 3,650 J. B. Sheeley & Co 1,050 Geo.E.King 1,842 0. E.

Parks 1,440 Mr. Parks' bid was the lowest and was promptly accepted, but when it came to making out the contract he discovered that he had made an error of $300 and that he would have to have $1,800. The board then accepted the Killmar bid. Mr. Killmar put -in the bridge at St. Joe, and is an experienced bridge man. His work there was good, fully up to the contract, and the board are glad that be is to put in the new bridge. Work will begin at once.

DEATH OP J. R. MILLIS. Another of the Pioneers Joins the Majority—Other Mortuary Matters. John R. Millis died at his home near Burt last week Tuesday evening, and was buried in the Algona cemetery Thursday, a company from tho G. A. R. post going up to Burt for the funeral. Mr. Millis was born in Warren county, N. Y., April 4, 1823, and at 26 years of age came to Wisconsin, from which state he went to the war. In 1868 he came to Algona and built the house where J. R. Jones now lives. Later he moved to Portland township and bought a farm. He was married in 1847 to Elsie Van Zant, and seven children were born, but onenow living, Myron H., a well-known citizen of the county. Another son, William, is buried in the cemetery here. Mr. Millis was a kindly man and a good neigh bor. May he rest in peace. CHAS. L. WARD. Rev. Southwell conducted the funeral Saturday at Irvington of the son of Mr. and Mrs. M. Ward. He was born in St. Louis in 1870, leaves a wife and one child. He has been a great sufferer, and a post mortem examination revealed that Bright's disease was the cause of his early death. Many friends have kindly ministered to him in his illness and now mourn his untimely departure. BERTHA LOUISE WILSON. Monday this baby, born Jan. 28 and dead Sept. 19, was laid away. SOME Bia OASES IN COURT. The Coining Term Promises to Be Full of Interest. Seven of the Lund land title cases will be tried. They all involve the title of actual settlers, and will be fought by able attorneys. These are not jury cases but are to be heard by the court. The N. J. Skinner indictment will be tested, It is unlikely that any attempt will be made to further postpone the hearing. The suit of Aug. Dinger against Nick Bruer of Bancroft for $3,000 damages for wrongful arrest and bringing over from California will be tried. The McCowan vs. Long suit for $3,000 damages for wrongful arrest is .on.

Harris were agreeably surprised at their home near the Washington school last Saturday evening, Sept. 11, it being the occasion of their 30th wedding anniversary. About 25 of their friends gathered in the early evening at the home of C. H. Atkins, and at 8 o'clock they flocked into the Harris home, successfully surprising Mr. and Mrs. Harris, who were unaware of the presence of the surpris- ers until they had taken possession of their home. The surprisers presented Mr. and Mrs. Harris with a handsome oak rocker as a token of remembrance of tho happy event. A diversity of amusements and refreshments made everybody feel happy and a most enjoyable evening was spent, one long to be remembered by Mr. and Mrs. Harris. -H H- -J- Fish Commissioner Delevan has dumped 50,000 small fish into Okoboji.

Hanna, who is spending a few days with his mother, residing on the Cedar Falls road, about two miles from the city, and shaking hands with old Waterloo friends, informs us that he and his wife are delighted with Porto Rico, to which island Mr. Hanna was sent as consul by President McKinley, or rather to which be was transferred after spending a brief period on the island of Trinidad, in the Carribean sea. Mr. and Mrs. Hanna reside at San Juan, the capital of the island.. They declare their surroundings to be "a dream of beauty and luxury." Porto Rico is one of the choicest gems in the group of islands known as the West Indies, being exceeded in size only by Cuba and Hayti. The island belongs to Spain, having been settled by Ponce de Leon, in 1510. It is about 110 miles in length and 40 miles in width, and is traversed from east to west by ranges of mountains, from whose bases rich tracts of soil extend to the sea on all sides. Rain falls in much greater abundanae on the northern than the southern part of the island. The principal products are sugar, coffee, and rice, although tobacco, corn, yams, bananas and tropical fruits are grown. The chief towns are San Juan, Mayagues and Ponce. In 1820-23 an unsuccessful effort .was made to shake off the Spanish yoke. After spending a week in Waterloo and vicinity, Mr. Hanna will depart for Washington, and after a brief visit set sail for the West Indies. It is said that Mrs. Hanna, mother of the consul, is the oldest living resident of the county, that is, the date of her settlement in the county is earlier than that of any other person now living here, having come to this place with her husband in July, 1845.

It will work in tall and short corn, drilled or checked, with equal facility, and is absolutely invincible when handling corn in the various conditions in which it is left after a severe wind storm. It will do good work where others fail. This was demonstrated at field trials on the farms of F. D.
