As the local campaign draws to a close there is more and more evidence of a reaction among republicans in favor of the straight ticket. The signs of a bolt that were very conspicuous ten days ago are disappearing and it is now conceded that the republican county ticket will go through with a good majority. A vigorous fight is being made on J. R. Jones by the free-allvorltos of all complexions. They are urging personal reasons, but tho real animus of the compaign Is the glory of boasting that Kossuth has elected one of the most radical free silver men in the state. This has become so apparent that many republicans are lining up on purelv political grounds. Republicans in various localities will continue to oppose Mr. Jones, for personal reasons which they deem sufficient, but tho republican rank and file is not going to be caught in tho free silver net. It has been spread too plainly in eight of tho bird. .. The campaign against tho republican ticket has gone to pieces because there was no real foundation for it.

But the charge has been that Algona had "hogged" the offices. It has been shown conclusively that taking a period of 15 years Algona has_not had more than its share of nominations and it has been shown that Algona had next to nothing to do with nominating tho present ticket. Everybody knows that from Mr. Jones to Dr. Morse the ticket was nominated fairly by oelo- catos from all parts of the county. THE UPPER DES MOINES predicts a straight republican victory next lues- day. , An Estimate of Show. Burrol,the genius of the Washing ton Press, prints Shaw's picture anc says. Ho does not look like a knave nor a fool, does he? He is a Vermont er. He came to Iowa when of age, and began working on a farm as a hirec man, and no doubt, washed his face an hands in a tin basin out doors on bench and wiped on a hickory towe and combed his hair on the stoop. H wanted an education, that he might no always be a farm hand. The young fe lows nowadays all want to leave the farm, and gain a wider field. So he took his saved wages and went thro college, paying his own way, sawing wood, doing odd jobs ho turned up, and in vacation peddled fruit trees and IVIUlWJUo LUUU uivniwvi *'"-.7 — ^ compliment for his loyalty to tho republican ticket in the face of defeat.

But every roudor of either THE UP- PEU DES MOINES or Republican or of any of tho county papers knows that no attempt has boon made to conceal tho method of marking under tho now law. Both THE UPPER DES MOINES and Republican have published tho new law in full, have called special attention to its provisions, and this week THE UPPEU DBS MOINES, at its own expense, furnishes its readers with sample ballots, a thing never before done in this county. More has been done this year than over before by republicans to insure every voter a full understanding of how to vote. The attack upon Auditor kins is part and parcol of a plan to win in this campaign by clap-trap. Webster City Freeman: The ropubli cans of Kossuth county are experienc ing some trouble with bolters this vear. As in this county, some of the dissatisfied ones are claiming they were " hurt" in the nominating convention, and are going before, the people with their grievances. The following from the Algona UPPER DES MOINES shows the situation to be much the same in Kossuth county as it is in Hamilton this year.

Then he studied law, and settled in Denlson, and, as New England is full of money seeking investment, the capitalists there who knew him in his youth and banked on him, gave him a commission to loan for them at legal, or lower than legal rate, and first and last ho put out some $2,000,000 on mortgages, and it is said he never foreclosed one. Ho has made, since his majority, perhaps $20, 000 to $25,000, which is doing very well and no one in his section criticis- es his good and honorable business methods. His speeches show that he has a thorough comprehension of tne financial question. Allison, who is ad W. H.

Tho Wesley Reporter is hard put-to when it revives that silly yarn about W editor of THKUFPma DES MOINES Aljroim on Democratic Tlckota. Just for its own amusement THE UPPER DES MOINES has looked to see how many Algonians the democrats have supported for office in the past 16 years. It is an interesting record. In 1882, in people's party days, they voted for E. V. Swotting for recorder. In 1883 the list was J. J. Wilson for representative, S. S. Rist treasurer, Roy MoGetchle auditor, J. J. Wilkinson superintendent, Dr. Richmond coroner. , In 1884 Dr. McCoy ran for congress. In 1885 Ed.

Burrell in the -Washington Preaai Assume the two county tickets, republican and popocratlc, are of equal merit, Why should republicans scratch! No one claims any superiority for the latter ticket, and if one did so claim, facts would not make the claim Rood. Let's concede that "our friends, the enemy," have a reputable ticket all thro 1 from Stahl (for senator) to the foot of the list. Wo all like mid respect those on that ticket -Alberson, Crltz, Teeter, Griffith, Miss Klass, ot al. They tire nice, good people every one. Concede that. We want to talk to those republicans who may bo inclined to scratch, and wo put this question: " How will it help your party, the republican, to vote BO as to break its linos?" Just stop and think of that a mlnuto. Why do we have any parties at nil! Because under our form of government It is a necessity; you can't fix responsibility in legislation and administration in any other way, can you? Therefore, all state affairs, and (particularly in big cities) in municipal affairs, it is necessarily by political parties. It can't bo helped. It is the nature of things. Tho national government is run by a party; so Is tho state government, and so is tho county government, and iu the larger oltios tho municipal government is run by a party. This necessity of governing by party, to fix responsibility, runs all thro' our administration, from nation at large to county and oven city and township. Hence the parties have to keep up an organization of equal range from township and city to nation; and to keep a party strong in national affairs you've got to keep it intact in smaller spheres, that Is, in state, in county, city affairs. This is self-evident and needs no discussion. Yet there are republicans in this county who, just as soon as we win a national election, that they and wo all rejoice in, turn about the next year and vote to break our own lines, and if they succeed in picking off a man here and there, that Is, let in one ot tho other party in tho defeat of our own candidates, they show as much glee as they did the year before when they loyally helped lick tho common enemy. We submit that, in poll tics, this is no better sense than it would bo in war, if, after winning a federal victory, union soldiers should go over and help the confederates win, in turn, a complete or a partial victory. And it has this further mischief: It teaches men to scratch, and estimate lightly the value of has aoroug comp eor financial question.

If a man is a union soldier lot him bo one at all timos, and not be a Johnny part of the time. If he is a republican let him bo one all the time; and thus keep both army and party strong for future encounters. This is the point we make—you can't keep either an army or a political party strong If, in off years, you voluntarily, by your talk and votos, break your own lines and help the enemy whip your party or army. In military affairs they made short work of that kind via court marshal. In politics wo have no such remedy. Loyalty to party is loft to the good sense and honor and good comradeship of people. Accordingly, it is not good politics to scratch, unless a nominee is of bad character or is notoriously unfit for the place. But, instead, it is very bad politics. Now, to make this concrete, apply It personally, thus: How can it help the republican party, if you, a republican, scratch Palmer for Stahl or Lackey? It's absurd. How could it help the past if you, a republican, scratch Huston for Alberson? It could not "help" at all, but it would harm the party. Why do that? Do you really think it would strengthen the party to scratch Smith for Teeter i Would it, or does not that kind of thing all the time demoralize the party? How could it help the party any to scratch Reynolds in * avor of Griffith? Absurd I Why should any republican scratch Miss Hughes for Miss Klass, with a view to strengthening the party? It's nonsense. Every time republican lines have been broken la this county is was scratching re- offices.
