Galbraith '& Co. The Shaw meeting in Algona Saturday was a record breaker in one way— there were a half more listening when he closed than when he began. The rain of the night before combined with bad roads and a cold, chilly day made the farmers late about arriving, but before the meeting was far along the opera house was filled, and the audience was one representative of all the central part of the county. For over two hours the speaker hold his hearers in the closest attention as in an easy and conversational style he reviewed last fall's campaign, and showed how important it is that there shall be no flinching now from the verdict then rendered. In his discussion of the money question he was so clear and explicit that everybody saw exactly what he was driving at and the frequent rounds of applause showed how fully ho voiced the sentiments of his audience. In opening he said that Mr. Bryan of Nebraska and Mr. Towne of Minnesota had been brought to his town to declare the issue. He had accepted it. He said that it was not the management of our local affairs, but the free coinage of silver at 16'to 1. He welcomed the discussion and he invited, the voters to again cast their ballots to decide whether there is now any desire to change from the decision registered last fall. In concluding he touched on the tariff question, again winning enthusiastic applause. From Algona Mr. Shaw went to Mason City, where he spoke at night to a big audience. He is making two standing enough that his name as an endorser on a mortgage makes it marketable in any money market in the United States. • The Kind of a Man 8na\v 18. The following letter to the Denlson Review by one of Candidate Shaw's farm tenants tells its own story: Dow CITY, Sept. 34.—Editor Review. Denison, Iowa—Dear Sir: I have heard of some of the things that are being said against Mr. Shaw, the republican candidate for governor. I have been renting from Mr. Shaw for four years. I never had any trouble in getting such repairs as were needed on the place whenever I asked for them of Mr. Shaw. I was way behind on toy rent and Mr. Shaw never troubled me and gave me all the time that I asked for. When wo finally made a settlement last fall Mr. Shaw threw off over *500 from the rental. I did not ask him for the discount but he said I had had hard luck and prices had been low and ho felt that he ought to throw off on the rent and gave mo a credit of over $500. He also let mo have some money to buy stock so that I could get a better start. I make this statement in justice to Mr. Shaw to show how well ho has treated mo and I have heard of other instances where ho treated his tenants equally as well. You can publish this letter it you want to. Yours truly, Uiusr A. TALCOTT. FIRST OF THE LUND SUITS, IN A MBABtJRE IT IS A TEST CASE, Shows tJp Mr. Lund's curious Methods of Doing Business-Other Cases In Court. A Common Courier llesort. Gormania Standard: The Courier has trotted out some of the Standard articles that the aforesaid democratic paper quoted before the primary. They fit all right for the Courier's purpose, but that paper forgets that the application is not the same, since circumstances have changed. Sid Foster at JjuVeriio. Hon.

ARM AND HOM WHERE you can engage in diversified farming and not be depend' with speeches a day, shows no signs of weariness, and is receiving everywhere a most cordial reception. Tomorrow he and Capt. Milliman have a big meeting in Des Moines, both speaking twice to separate audiences. Judge Carr's Opinion. Judge Carr was up from Des Moines last week for court. Between times he is making campaign speeches, as candidate for the legislature in Polk county. He says that but one opinion prevails over the state and that is that Shaw will be elected by a big, majority. It is only a question of getting out the vote, and special efforts will now be directed to seeing that the republicans go to the polls. He says Shaw is making a winning campaign. The judge is looking forward to the legislative session with interest. He says the impression prevails that it will pare down public expenditures to the lowest notch. The judge will be one of the powerful men of the house. As Others Sec It. Germania Standard: The Wesley Reporter is making a fool of itself in its manner of kicking because Kernan was not nominated. The votes show that had Algona given her entire delegation to Kernan, Spencer would have been nominated by a large majority. The records show that three of Wesley's votes were cast for Spencer. Not only that, but Wesley's votes dictated the nomination of Jones, and Wesley cast her entire vote for all the other Algona men. Why don't the Reporter kick Wesley's own delegates, instead of the nominees? These men were the choice of the people. A. Pointed SuKeestion, Garner Signal: We would like to ask our republican friends, those of them who talk of bolting the ticket on certain of the county officers, what do you expect to gain by pursuing such a suicidal course? Are you so credulous as to believe that the democrats will giye you any credit after the election for your action in helping to elect them to office? Did you ever hear of them doing anything for a republican after using him as a catspaw to rake out the political chestnuts? No! neverl They will simply give themselves all the credit and boast of how we did it. Burt Monitor: Our reporter has been told that if PeteChristenson is elected sheriff Will McDonald will be made deputy sheriff. The Britt Tribune is very anxious to help the bolters in Kossuth and demolish them in Hancock. Bailey wabbles a little in the effort. The Carroll Times devotes a column to THE UPPER DES MOINES' review of Bryan in Algona, and uses such phrases as " poisoned with ignorant prejudice," and others not less resounding. The Times should possess itself in patience. Bryan still lives. Julien Richards, who was in Algona with Shaw reports 600 majority for Kossuth and says: In the county there is a bitter faction fight among the republicans over the county ticket, but the leaders of both factions promise that the full republican vote shall he polled for the state ticket, and that both sides will join in giving Mr. Shaw a big vote. The first of Russ-Lund land cases to affect the rights of actual purchasers in the county was brought to trial yesterday morning before Judge Thomas. John Keller bought a quarter section of the Russ land on contract some years ago. Before his note came due he paid Lund $2,200 on the contract and pot a deed, ostenslbfy from Russ. The deed was a forgery, Lund never turned the money over to Russ, and the latter avors that Lund had no authority from him to accept or receipt for the Keller money. Mr. Keller contends that Lund held himself out as Russ' agent, that Russ' conduct was such as to warrant the Impression that Lund was his agent with full authority to act for him in closing up his land deals, and that in paying to Lund he was in fact paying to Russ, whether Lund turned over the money or not. A number of varying details arise in each case, in this first instance the fact being that Lund did not have Keller's note In his possession and that Keller did not got his note when ho paid the money on it, Russ still holding that piece of paper. Clarke & Cohonour are attorneys for Russ in all tho cases, while Sullivan & MoMahon assisted by Thos. D. Henley of Fort Dodge are for all tho defendants. In this Keller case A. C. Dudley of Des Moines appears as attorney for tho Iowa Loan & Trust company which holds a mortgage on the land that hinges on Keller's title. In connection with this case six others are being tried, the general testimony and argument being the same In each. They involve 820 acres hold by Peters, 100 acres by Hogor, byCosgroyo and a $1,000 held,by Thoo. Chrischilles. pected that the judge will of them tomorrow. close order.

Many Sorro-wliiK Friends Accompany tho Remains to Their Last Resting Place. The funeral of Jennie Hinchon, whose death was noted last week, was held at tho Catholic church Thursday morning at 10 o'clock, Father Nicholls officiating. With Mr. Hinchon were his daughter Mollie, who is in her second year at the Prairie du Chien Catholic school, and Will, who came from Iowa City. Also his sister, Mrs. McGough of Waukon, his half brother, M. Healey of Fort Dodge, accompanied by his daughter Mrs. Ella Joyce and Mrs. M. T. Healey, The church was filled with sympathetic mourners. The loss is peculiarly severe to Mr. Hinchon, as he has had the sole care of Jennie from babyhood. She was only 15 months old when her mother died in 1887, and for ten years she has been his charge and joy. The first symptoms of ill health appeared in August. Nothing serious was feared until a medical examination revealed diabetes in its worst form. Since then everything has been tried without avail. She was a bright and playful child, full of promise, and her early death is one of those losses for which time alone can compensate. ____^_ DON'T throw away good but faded garments. Remember with one hour's work and no muss, if you use Putnam Fadeless Dyes, you can make them new ld The Jjodyurd Assessment Case. One of the most Important cases tried in the county involved the assessment for taxation of the Dunlap Bros, bank at Ledyard. The bank has $34,000cap- ital and the assessor put it in at $10,000 and over. The Dunlaps appealed and were represented in court by Sullivan & McMahon and Judge Carr, while Clarke & Cohenour represented the town authorities. The contest turned over what should be allowed as offsets. The Dunlaps showed that they had bought land assuming debts, and asked that all such debts be allowed to be taken out of the assessment. Tho town resisted on tho ground that such debts stand against the land and should not be considered as offsets. Judge Thomas ruled with the bank, and the assessment was cut to something over $1,900. Mr. Clarke thinks the county should appeal and get a decision on this important question. The Boyer Ciittlo Case. W. P. Boyer has been farming on land in Riverdale owned by Miller of Des Moinos. He gave Geo. C. Call a mortgage on a lot of cattle he was feeding. ALivermorite named Reisinger also held a mortgage. Relalnger grew suspicious and seized the cattle, whereupon Miller came from Des Moines, paid Reisinger's claim and took the cattle claiming that he had owned them all tho time. Boyer was Indicted for mortgaging property he did not not own, and Mr, Call brought suit to hold Miller for his claim. The case was argued before Judge Thomas Saturday afternoon and Monday morning by K V Swotting for Call, and Frank Miles of Llvermore for Miller. Miller was successful, , • MEBfiY WEDDING The Wnrtman<.Eastniftn Marriage is a Social Eyent-Jt It. Zanke ttttd Miss Anna Lttrson Wed.

The suit brought by Grant Ramsey to hold Hoxle & Brunson for $70.0 he lost on a Lund mortgage he bought of them was dismissed to be brought again. Mr, Swotting, who represents Ramsey, wanted to put in more proof of the forgery than he had. Judge Carr represented the defendants, Ramsey claims that Hoxio & Brunson represented to him that they owned the mortgage themselves, and had put their own money into it, and that they are responsible to him. Hoxie & Brunson state that Ramsey bought the paper in the usual course of business, knowing, that it was Lund's paper and taking it without any endorsement whatever from them.
