Hew York city, Brooklyn and other suburbs are DOW a part of one municipal corporation known as "Greater jfewYork. 5 ' Yesterday tbe first mayor of thie great aggregation, having 600,000 voters, was chosen. The campaign has been one of sensations. The first candidate in the field was Seth Low, a former mayor of Brooklyn, now president of Columbia college, running on an independent ticket brought out in response to a petition containing 120,000 signatures. He bad tbe indorsement of republicans and democrats of high standing, and his demand has been that city government be independent of political parties. Tammany, organized on the basis of corruption and spoils, named Judge Van Wyck, a sporty son of a distinguished family, who was arrested in Paris for drunkenness at a public ball, and who won a beef eating contest in New York with 37 steaks. The republicans named Judge Tracy, President Harrison's cabinet officer, a man of integrity, but handicapped by the great prejudice against Senator Platt, who was denounced in terms no less bitter than Tammany. Last was Henry George, named by the labor element of New York. George accepted the nomination, knowing that death might be the result. His vigorous attacks upon both Platt and Tammany soon centered the whole excitement about him, and his meet- comfort out of ISJe because ofthePnll- m&ns, Is able to enjoy more *Hb Ins toil, why should Pullman by allowed So accumulate seven millions of dollars? On tbe contrary why should he not. seeing that any achievement of moment turns on tbe accumulation of wealth in somebody's hands? In the richest country in the world the total wealth would only be f 1,200 to each man, woman, child, if evenly divided; in the United States but f 1,000. What railroads would be built, what great industries developed, or great cities grown if every person bad his $1,000 and knew enough to keep it? We should be the poorest and most mediocre race on earth. The accumulation of wealth is the precursor of all material development. What reason is there to believe that it would be accumulated more fairly or be used more judiciously if society as a whole, the state, should attend to it, as the socialists urge? Admit that many of the wealthy are offensive snobs, that their use of their money is an affront to good citizenship and good morals, that the tendencies to a plutocratic aristocracy are painfully apparent, how many believe that we should be so free from these and kindred evils if the state owned and controlled tbe accumulation of wealth, that they today would recommend the change? Pullman was a hard headed, plain living, hard working, common man, who built a model town, cut off two worthless boys with " a shilling," left a million to found a manual training school, and who benefltted his generation. The slate would be lucky if H got as good men to administer affairs in Bellamy's dream world. Would Pullman as an agent of the slate have shown tbe enterprise, the energy, the plain business sense that he has as a private citizen? Would Pullman's contribution to society have been as great under the new order as it has been un- W. Pangburn, D. Rice's son-in-law, is moving into his new home. It adds: He has a beautiful home and we wish him and his good wife years of joy in it. The Armstrong Journal says that Robert Oordingley, son of Wm. Cordingley of Algona, who has lived on tbe Rice farm at Silver Lake tbe past two years, has moved to Montevido, Minn. Miss Norma Gilchrist is acting as county superintendent down in Pocahontas. Her brother, the Record says, has gone to New Mexico and will resign, the supervisors appointing a successor next week. Estherville Republican: Mesdames Pettibone and Stacy of Algona will arrive this evening For a visit of a few days at the home of Mrs. A. G. Melz- gar. While here Mrs. Stacy will inspect the Women's Relief corps. Emmetsburg Tribune: M. J. Walsh, the crack shot of the Fourth regiment. to the has gone to Livingston, Mont., to take Rapid?.

SEMI-LOOAL SEWS HOTES. The Forest City Summit wants Kossuth republicans io ndd a medal to Addison Fisher's easy chair: The republican organization in Kossutb should appropriate ample funds to secure for one of their residents a mighty fine medal and present it to him at an ele- Choice Apples. We will have... charge of tbe tinning department in Nolan Brothers' hardware. He is a first-class tinsmith and an all-round, useful man in a hardware store. Wm.

He is tbe man who debated with Dr. Sayers on impaction of tbe omasum and who was going to sue THE UPPER DES M DIKES for libel. Bailey: Kossulh county is declaring war on the jack rabbits and will organize to surround the whole of them at once with dogs and guns and exterminate thJtn from tbe face of the earth. So many of those fellows wanted to run for office that there were not offices enough to go around: these will take a turn at chasing rabbits. Z. S. Barrett. Geo Hanna and Geo. Boyle will each take a run. They have bad some experience and are all considered "quick." ings were a succession of wildly enthusiastic ovations. He charged openly that such men as Roger A. Pryor had paid as high as 515,000 for a judgeship to Tammany, and be promised to send Richard Croker to the penitentiary if elected. The wildest guesses prevailed ae to the relative strength of the candidates. George's sudden death Friday morning made tbe outcome more uncertain. It has been the most exciting, dramatic, and uncertain political contest in recent years. der the old? POLITICAL NOTES. republi- Monday Corwith ought to be solidly can. Brook Plummer spoke night. If this campaign has been a sample of tbe " Christianizing" process, bow would it be to remain heathen awhile? FEED WHITE IN Fred White closed the democratic campaign at the opera house Monday afternoon. The band welcomed him. J. M. Farley was over to join Horace Mann and C. C. Chubb in greeting him at the depot. Mayor Chrischilles introduced him. It was a cold, cheerless day, and although the house was warm the crowd was not large. White spoke in Algona during the second Boies campaign. At that time he devoted hie whole time to tbe tariff, and said that unless the people got free trade prosperity couldn't come. Monday he made the same speech excepting that be inserted free silver for free trade. And the amusing part of it was that the repuplicans bad put the tariff on a protective basis and had "eat upon" free silver and prices had doubled Bince last fall and everybody in bis audience knew that industry had revived. White is a good, substantial man, not particularly interesting as a public speaker, with two or three hobbies. He retbreshed the free silver straw to an audience that knew absolutely that it is as dead as a last year's bird's nest, just as Gov. Boies says it is. PULLMAN'S WEALTH. The career of a man like Geo. M. Pullman suggests the problem of wealth. Back in tbe early days in Chicago be came to town, a farmer boy to seek bis fortune. He divined that people would like to sleep and travel at the same time, thus began the Pullman palace car. He died last week leaving a fortune of 87,500,000. Was that fortune won at tbe expense of the rest of us? The McCormick machine company takes thousands of dollars from Iowa farmers every year. What is that compared to the thousands the McCormick inventions have contributed .to Iowa farmers? Do LaVal may boa millionaire or not, hie cream separator Jme doubled the productive capacity of every dairy in Kossutb county. Pullman found or created a real want and then filled it. No one is compelled to ride in bis sleeping cars if he prefers old way. Pullman contributed than be took or we should all be jetill sitting up nights. His fortune is a bagatelle compared to the fortune he NEWS AND COMMENT. E. B. Dike, editor of the Charles City Intelligencer, died of heart disease Friday. He had been in the editorial harness since 1870. Henry George wafi one of tbe original thinkers ol his generation. He was a master of clear, concise, vigorous Englisn. He has molded public opinion in the United States more than is apparent on the surface. Whatever may be said of the details of bis plan of taxation, or of the foundation principles from which he worked, be emphasized a great truth, namely that land monopoly is tbe most vicious of all monopolies. His death while in the heat of the great New York mayoralty contest again focuses public attention upon him and upon his life work. He was sincere, above the demogogy of the average "friend of labor," a clear headed and honest hearted benefactor of his fellow men. The November Midland Monthly, brilliant in a new cover, calls attention to the fact that the magazine season is again at hand. The Midland has made great gains during the past year financially as well as artistically. It is now ranked among the 30 leading magazines, and the casual observer will note that eastern advertisers are gradually recognizing the value of its circulation. No Iowa family ought to be without this splendid Iowa magazine, and THE UFFEK DBS MOINES will be pleased to show sample copies to its readers. gaye the world. W, H.

Emmetsburg is putting in a telephone exchange. Jos. Oxley has shipped in u lot of Canadian cattle to feed. The bank robbers got $7 at Blairsburg instead of $7,000 as reported. Alex. Dorweiler is a proud papa at Whittemore since one day last week. Surveyor Tellier laid out a cemetery for the Swedish Lutherans at Swea City last week. • A professional foot racer beat Burl's fast man, Jess Blancbard, last week for $20. Garner Signal: Miss Mary Kain of Algona was a guest of Miss Hannah Tierney over Sunday. A. W. Utter is being talked as a compromise postofflce candidate at Emmetsburg. He was tbe former republican Nasby. The Bancroft Register endorses the Wm. Hawley Smith lecture to be given by the high school next week at the Call opera house. Bailey offers to bet that the man who stole the watch in Union will get out of our jail before he is tried. Bailey wants a sure thing. West Bend Journal: Mrs. D. T. Jones and Miss Eva Newcombe of Irv- vington were guests at the W. A. Younie home over Sunday. E. I. Brayton, the old Greenwood pioneer, has moved to Georgia for good. Mr. Brayton was one of the organizers of defunct Crocker county. Emmetsburg Democrat: Henry Thompson of Whittemore brought his little daughter to this city yesterday to take treatment from one of our local physicians. A Sanborn attorney defended a Spirit Lake young man and cleared him in a seduction case, young man for Cheap enough. is now suing tbe $1,200 attorney fee.

In some way tbe m was dropped and Bracket! hit it exactly. The town council at Buffalo Center submitted tbe matter of billiard ball licenses to vote. Last year they put a $500 license on a table. It has been si burning issue. Col. Chas. A. Clarke introduced Dolliver at his big Cedar Rapids meeting. Mr. Clarke said the republican wigwam was the only one that he could find any particular shelter in. Burrell's parting suggestion: Hens, roosters, dogs, bears, cats, on occasion, scratch, but do good republicans, when they have a good ticket? Do they? Whv scratch when you haven't got the itch'? Daily Capital: As soon as the campaign is over Congressman Dolliver, wife and sister, will go to Boston, the guests of the Home Market club. Mr. Dolliver has accepted an invitation to deliver tbe annual address before this organization. Horace Mann wrot6 for THE UPPER DES MOINES early in the campaign and said that the object of the silver- lies was to Christianize the county. This explains why eleven wagon loads of them went out over tbe county Sunday from Algona. The Odeboldt Chronicle calls upon Chairman McMillan to publish a statement showing receipts and disbursements of the republican state central committee. The Webster City Freeman says: A good suggestion, surely. Show where the money came from and where it is going. The last West Bend Advance said: R. M. Richmond was down from Swea City Monday. He says that it does not follow that the Herald supports Jones merely because his name is on the published ticket. He says that republicans around Swea City will knife Jones to beat blazes, or words to that effect. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. With the November number St. Nicholas begins a new volume, and enters upon its 25th year. The new serials are begun, and others are promised for succeeding numbers. Prank B. Stockton has the first of a series of narrative sketches he will contribute on "The Buccaneers of Our Coasts." Mr. Stockton writes this in a characteristic and humorous vein, dubbing Christopher Columbus a grand master in the gentle art of piracy. He throws no glamor about the lives of these adventurous sea-rovers, but he tells of many of their exploits as they have been recorded by Esquetnelingand other veracious historians. •+• -T- -r- The November number of theCentury begins a new volume of that magazine. A new serial novel of New York life, "Good Americans," by Mrs. Burton Harrison, is begun, and will run for half a year. It deals with contemporaneous social types and tendencies. The first part of a serial poem by James Whitcomb Riley is printed, accompanied by illustrations by C. M. Kel- yea. Mr. Riley calls the poem " Rubaiyat of Doo Sifers," and in it he tells in characteristic vein of a quaint and lovable village doctor, giving anecdotes and descriptions of the doctor's ways and doings from the point of view of an old fellow-townsman, Depew on a Great Hullroad. Eli Perkins tells the following story of a talk with Depew: "Talking about great railroads," said Chauncey Depew, " the Chicago & Northwestern with its 8,000 miles of track is about theliveliest railroad on this continent." "The North-Western trains to St, Paul, and, in fact, over the Union Pa- cifio to California. It is the only road you can ride 50 miles an hour on from Chicago to Ogden and Portland, Oregon, without changing oars." " Where else does tbe 'North-West' run to?" I asked, "Why everywhere. It is an alk over-creation railroad. It spreads out like a. great fan from Chicago. It runs straight through to Milwaukee, Madison, St,' Paul, Puluth, Superior, Ash' land and the copper and iron, mines of North Michigan. It runs straight through Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Dakota to Pierre on the Missouri M& Jpftkj on the Northern Pacific. It »llfl0tf ft ferfti^ flight through gant spread. His name is Fisher and at a recent family re-union there were present 67 of his children, grand-children and great grand-children—17 of the last generation. THE UPPER DES MOINES interviewed him and heard a lot of interesting things about bis family, but the most clearly recalled was that there is not a democrat in the lot. The patriarch is entitled to reward by his party. The. Estherviile Democrat BHJ-S- of Algeria's new Episcopalian rector: Our Episcopalian friends in the adjoining county will find in Rev.

We hope some will come to Kossuth—anything but politics of this fail's type. -7- -5- -T- The Carroll Herald is 30 years old. It is and has been from the daye of the brilliant Hastings one of Iowa's best papers. May Bro. Hungerford live long and flourish. The Chicago Record has this note about the two " tackles" of the Minneapolis foot ball team, the Nicoulin being Alpona's Claude: Both men are ground gainers of a high sort, and can usually be depended upon when given ball, 'in defensive work they are superb and tackle low and hard. P'inlay- son can block more punts than any man on the team, and breaks up interference in a vicious manner. Nicoulin is but little behind his partner, and has done exceptionally fine work in all games in which he hae appeared. A Car Loac of Apples in a few days—choice winter keeps. Langdon & Hudson. TELEPHONE NO. IS. A Bushel of Cobs A BAILWAY EEFOBM. Something Better Than S. D. Drake's Second Class Tickets Already Secured. Monday a new plan was adopted on all the railways in Iowa. They have put into operation what is known as the "Sebastian interchangeable mileage credit system,"by which passengers doing a large amount of traveling can secure their riding at the rate of 2 cents per mile, whether they travel over one or many routes. This will not as yet interfere with the regular 1,000- mile ticket business which lias prevailed heretofore, where the mileage is good over only one line, but it affords a plan by which mileage may be made good over any line within the territory named, so that instead of the traveler being obliged to buy mileage over each of the lines, his milenge will be good over any of them.

"Miff a day is what it takes to run my Cole's Hot Blast Air Tight heater which I bought of you last week" is the way a late customer put it last Saturday when he came to our store. A stove that will heat a house and keep a steady heat all day with a bushel of cobs must be a fuel saver and an economical heater. Try a bushel of cobs a day in any other soft coal heater and See what the Result Will Be. The stove is making new customers every day because people see with their own eyes that the stove burns up the gas in the soft coal, burns cobs with a steady heat, keeps fire all night with cobs, and 36 hours with one hodful of soft coal.
