Tttfi "GOLW STANUAnb," Every republican believes In the " tfold standard'*—that is in maintain* ing every dollar of our currency equal with the present gold dollar. There need be no debate about that. No one Who voted for MoKlnley has any sympathy with the idea that the present standard of values injures labor, or agriculture, or that in any possible currency reforms It should be lowered. President Gompers of the federation of labor, writes to Secretary Gage a letter in which he objects to his proposed reforms, because they recognize that the present gold dollar is a fair measure. On that issue every republican who went through last fall's campaign will be with Secretary Gage. The case against the existing standard was never made out. The sweeping generalizations on which It rested would not stand the test of debate or of actual market reports. Republicans are bl- metallists and mono-metallists, believers In bank currency and national currency, but they are a unit on the main proposition namely, that every dollar shall be as good as a gold dollar. This is a good thing to keep In mind while they are debating among themselves how best to provide a sufficient and stable currency, for it will be the standard of value and not the currency question that will be In issue in next fall's congressional elections, and it will be the standard of value and not the currency that will make a president in 1900. lose rotes.

Its editor most of A STATE HOARD OF CONTUOL. Iowa has 14 state institutions which are now under the management of trustees. These trustees are elected by the legislature from various congressional districts, and all of them, we believe, receive $4 a day, while in actual service, and mileage. The list is as follows: .... Trustees. Agricultural college at Ames 11 College for the blind at Vlnton 0 Hospital for Insane at Clarlncla 5 Hospital for Insane at Mt. Pleasant 5 Hospital for insane at Independence 6 Hospital for Insane at Cherokee — Home for blind at Knoxvllle 0 Industrial schools, Eldora and Mltohelvllle fi Institution for feeble minded at Glenwood.. 3 Normal school at Cedar Falls 0 School for the deaf at Council Bluffs 3 Soldiers' home at Marshalltown o Soldiers' orphans' home 3 State university at Iowa City 13 The two penitentiaries located at Fort Madison and Independence are under the direct charge of wardens, and their deputies, who under the governor of the state, are in full authority. It is proposed by some to replace all of these boardsjby a single board, prob- • ably of five members, to be chosen by the state and to receive a yearly salary and to devote its whole time to the work of management. Others propose a single board for all of the institutions but the university, normal school, and agricultural college. It is argued In behalf of the new plan that a single board would soon systematize the work of all the institutions, and greatly reduce expenses by buying fuel, etc., in bulk, at much cheaper rates. It is also argued in behalf of it that such a board would come before the legislature with well considered estimates of the real needs of all the Institutions, and that the work of making needed appropriations would be much simplified. It is argued against the new plan that the present trustees draw less than such a board would cost, that it would be difficult to get competent business men on such a board at all times, that however such a board was selected all the institutions would lobby for their friends, that no matter what such a board reported the institutions that were disappointed by its allotment would make a fight in the legislature, ,that while such a board might simplify the book-keeping and save money in buying supplies, it could not possibly have talent enough to develope all o the institutions to their best possibill ties along their individual lines. .It is to be said against the proposed change that states which have the single board do not have as low taxes as Iowa. It is to be said for it that such that time, and has made It exceptional among Iowa weeklies. It has by far the biggest advertising patronage of any of our exchanges, and It Is edited with ability. It is cleanly printed and its news Is clean. The Mall Is a paper Sheldon should be proud of. Senator Funk concludes a long editorial, In which he answers objections to a single state board of control, ns follows: "The Institutions must be justly and liberally maintained. They will bo. But to this end it is not necessary to continue loose management and a general policy which is breeding distrust that Is sure to work in- Jury to the Interests Involved." The Sioux City Journal which is doing a good service In showing up the absurdity of much that is said about state taxes, says: "Down In Vlnton the people are about to voto a 5-mlll tax for a now school house. It will probably not occur to one voter is a hundred in Vlnton that his tax for building that single school house is about double the entire tax that he pays on account of the state government. Yet the special tax for the school house is only one Item in the long list of local taxes. Bernard Murphy In the Vinton Eagle: Several of the genial editors of the state arc strongly protesting against "fads" in schools, but wo notice by their articles the "fads" are located In the other towns. One of the best quarter section farms In Kossuth county, worth at least $0,000, pays less than $8.50 a year state tax. It looks as though Senator Hanna would bo beaten In Ohio. Gov.

About 40 people witnessed the service, which took place under ah arch of evergreen In the northwest corner of the parlor. The wedding .presents, which were numerous, gave evidence of the esteem In which these two persons were held by their friends. It Is the desire of their friends that they may spend a happy and prosperous life together. STATE BOARD 0? CONTROL. Vlnton Eagle: Every paper which favors or advocates a state board of control seems to think the whole thing hinges upon the amount paid for groceries. That Is the smallest part of the " management"of our Institutions. darroll Herald: We want Senator Funk to quit dealing In glittering generalities and get down to details, Get out your pencil, senator, and figure what it will cost the state for a board of control of three or five members to provide quarters at Des Moines, to furnish an expert book keeper and other necessary assistants, to pay traveling expenses, etc., for a biennial period. Figure In all necessary expenses and if It results In a material saving to the tax payers when all things are considered we'll join the senator In urging the proposed change. H. A. Burrell In the Washington Press: It Is doubtful If a board of control of all state Institutions is practicable, or would prove a saver of expense. The Institutions are so diverse. It would be a remarkable board that could "get onto the curves" of all and bo experts.

Emmetsburg Democrat: James Taylor of Algona was in this city yesterday looking after business interests lege and normal school would not probably be a good supervisor of prisons, and so on with the rest. The present separate boards are expensive, but their membership could safely be cut down. An executive committee of three would be more efficient than a board of 11, plus two state officers members ex-officlo. It would be a rare, versatile and omniscient board that could deal intelligently with all institutions varying so much in character. Odeboldt Chronicle: The Chronicle is In thorough accord with Senator Funk in his plea for a board of control for state institutions with one exception. We do not believe it right or expedient to abolish the trustee government of the state university and the state college of agriculture. These institutions should not be lumped with Insane asylums, reforms schools, penitentiaries and colleges for the blind. We might have a board of control composed of men perfectly competent to look after the business management of an asylum or reform school, but with little knowledge of the requirements of an educational institution; and it is idle to talk of a board on which every interest would haye representation. Had the state done its duty it would have by this time a great university like Ann Arbor. The colleges have been sadly neglected as it is; to put them under the control of astateboard would be a fatal blow. SEMI-LOCAL NEWS NOTES. H. M.

After I received your paper of the 8th Inst., giving some items as to Algona's first college, which were very Interesting to me and set me to thinking over my land seeking in the fall and winter of 1862 for the Iowa State Agricultural college In Kossuth and and other counties in the Fort Dodge and Sioux City districts, and of the many funny and remarkable incidents occurlng In that one thousand miles travel over 80 counties taking about three months of time to do the field work, I thought of some reminiscences that would be of interest to your readers. Hence the promise of a letter for publication on "Land Hunting as Agent for Iowa State Agricultural College," in 1862. I consider the part I haye have had with the building up of the Iowa State Agricultural college one of the most satisfactory of my state life for the promotion of the advancement of our slate interests, and more particularly the selection of the lands for the college. On receiving my commission from the hands of the late Samuel J. Kirkwood, then governor of Iowa, in October, 1862,1 hesitated to accept the position on account of the great responsibility of such a trust. It was with reluctance that I assumed the duties and labors involved. My great desire to see the agricultural interests of the state promoted Induced me to undertake the selection of the lands. Iowa was fortunate above most of her sister states in being able to find good lands within her own limits. The grant was a great and magnificent one by the United States government, a valuable legacy. I realized the necessity of prompt and decisive action in getting into the field at once and making my selection before the agents of other states got in their work. When I look back upon the remarkable history of the Iowa Agricultural college, and note the peculiar Providence which has been over it, I for one have great reasons for being thankful in having a part in its start and growth. Very few persons understand the momentous significance of the act of congress in making this grant to us for the benefit of agriculture and the mechanic arts, which act was passed on the 17th day of June, 1862, and became a law by the approval of the lamented Lincoln the 2nd day of July following. The measure was put through congress by the energetic efforts of Senator Harlan of Iowa, Wade of Ohio, and others. It was opposed by Iowa's other senator, flock of fine sheep, I think about 130. Among them some fine well-bred Merinos. His clip of wool he sent to the New York market. Mr. McCauley was just the kind of a man prosperous country. I the prairie—what beautiful land passed over—to Irvlngton. We to build up a wonder If he still lives, If so please send him a paper If you publish this letter. [Geo. McCauley, both father and son, are dead.] I selected about 8,000 acres In McCauley's county, Humboldt, near the forks, I suppose It is near where Livermore Is located. We left McCauley's in the morning going northeast leaving the travelled road to the left, across we got over on Prairie Creek in the afternoon. We would occasionally get a glimpse of a deer, though they were not very numerous around this infant settlement, but they could be seen quietly feeding at times and at other times with tails erect scampering through the tall wild grass of the prairies. My ambition and desire to secure the noble game was very marked. I do not think it ever leaked out—my experience on this creek on that December day, my attack of the "Buck fever." I was taken suddenly with the buck fever, the first and only attack I ever had. I never felt better In my life than I did just before the spell came upon me. It came about in this way, as near as 1 can figure out. I think we had venison for breakfast at McCauley's that morning, so my system was in the right condition for the fever to play havoc with me. As we reached the rise of a beautiful prairie bordering Prairie Creek I discovered a doe and fawn, browsing on the brink of the creek. I slipped out of my wagon with my gun, the moment I struck the ground the fever was at work some where in my being. I crept cautiously along on my hands and knees through the tall grass in the direction of the doomed pair, anxious as to what I should do with the game If I should be lucky in killing same. Occasionally I would stop and raise my head, something on the plan of the gopher when he is looking for trouble. The game was still in sight. As I drew nearer the trophies, the fever was coming to a climax. When I thought I was about the right spot, with the fever still gaining on me—it was working me for all there was in me to shoot—I raised myself just high enough to see above the grass and discovered as my vision BUftM MATTER IS MlXEfi, FURTHER OOMPtldATiOlfg Landlord Molstori Appears cures an Order Restraining the Sale—Court Mattel's. A new stage was reached in the mud-, die of Supervisor Burton's affairs last week. A sale of his stock- was advertised for Thursday afternoon by Sheriff Samson under mortgage. But before the time arrived for the sale an injun c , tion was served by Lelia A. Holstoa who owns the farm Burton has beet! renting. Clarke & Cohenour represent Mrs. Holston, and a $1^200 bond has been put up, the matter set for hearing on the first day of the next term of court. Mrs. Holston claims that Burton has never owned any of the stock on the farm and that none of the numerous mortgages he has given are good for anything. Mr. Holston was out from Illinois. He says that thousands of dollars have been put into the farm for which no return has been received whatever. . We have no record of the number of mortgages that Burton has given on the stock, but there will be a lot of losers if Mrs. Holston's claims are sustained. The record in any event will be a bad one. THE SEXTON PHARMACY CASE. Judge Quarton put In all of one day in hearing the testimony for and against allowing Dr. Spencer to sell liquors at Sexton. Nathan Pine led the protestants. There was considerable conflict in the testimony. THE DIVORCE RECORD. Some weeks ago the attempt of David C.

I think all of Iowa's members voted for the bill except Senator James W. Grimes. Again, I say, it was Iowa's mission to lead the van. Among the states in this noble enterprise we are now in advance of any'state of our age, and many of the older ones in agricultural matters. As I said above I entered the work with fear and trembling. From my memorandum, I left Cedar Falls Nov. 5, 1862, for my field of work, taking an assistant who was a surveyor, a Mr. Childs of Dubuque, Iowa, arriving at Fort Dodge on the evening of the 7th. It was ascertained that there was about 6,000,000 acres of vacant lands remaining in the state. We visited the land office at Fort Dodge, getting plats and descriptions of the vacant lands in the different counties in the district, and then on to Sioux City to look up plats of the vacant lands in that district, then back to Fort Dodge, thence to Des Moines to see what we could get in that district, thence back to Fort Dodge, where we made scanned the high pinnacle of a high prairie, a half mile distant, the beautiful creatures looking at me with heads and tails up— "No you didn't." I thought of course they were patiently waiting forme just in the spot where I first saw them. I have often thought they had just as well remained where they were as to have run away from me. I cannot now tell which end of the gun I had to my shoulder and whether it was cocked or not. The fever lasted all that day, and that is my experience first and last of the buck or doe fever. We were not able to select any more land that afternoon. I could not tell a government stake from a prong of a buck's antlers. We pushed on in our journey to Irvington where we remained for the night at a Mr. Mason's. I will try and send you more for your next issue. PETER MELENDY. THE NEW COUNTY BOARD.

We were accompanied by our old and good friend, George McCauley of Dakota city, the capital of Humboldt, I think about 27 mites north of Fort Dodge. We arrived at friend McCauley's about 8 o'clock p. m., and found a house full of people for the night. My notes say ten of us slept in a small room with but three beds.

He paid half of it and was then indicted for larceny. The case is continued and it is understood he has paid the balance of the note. Prank Ray was accused of stealing a watch over in Prairie. No evidence was produced and the grand jury let him go. Fred Dolliver sold mortgaged property belonging to the Ledyard bank. The witnesses all moved into Minnesota and were not forthcoming. The county pays the costs. r W. P. Boyer, who mortgaged a lot of cattle down in Riverdale, which one Miller of Des Moines came and took as his, was dismissed by the grand jury, No evidence was produced. "Reddy" Rand was dismissed by Judge Thomas. The dog he stabbed was biting his dog. The judge held that the attacking dog was worrying a domestic animal and had a right to expect a club or knife. Orvis, accused of stealing hay near Germania, was dismissed by the judge, Weatherbee was found not guilty as he was proved to be ignorant of the fact that the hay he sold was mortgaged. COURT NOTES. Judge Thomas held that the Ambrose A. Call pasture south of town should not be included in the incorporation. Last Fourth of July the town council in Wnittemore allowed a stand in the middle of the street for a bowery. Some of the business men didn't like it and brought an action of certiorari to have the council show its authority.
