The conditions of the company are such that the stockholders of each locality pick their own man to represent them in the gold fields, and the safeguards thrown around both officers and miners, makes dishonesty an impossibility. In our opinion it would pay anyone interested in the subject to see Mr. Tinker and get a clear idea of the plans of the expedition. Parties have already joined it from some of our neighboring towns and we note that the promoters in all of them rank among the successful business men of this district.

Charles Baker killed in Palo Alto county 12 adult wolves and one cub wolf and filed his bill with the county auditor, showing- him to be entitled to the legal bounty. He produced the whole skin of each of the 13 wolves and the county auditor accomplished their destruction by burning them. A receipt was given Baker for the skins and he assigned the claim to the plaintiff. While the matter of payment was pending with the board of supervisors additional information showing that the wolves were killed in Palo Alto county was demanded and was furnished. Defendant rules on its contention that as the claim was against a special fund and not against the county, that the claim could not be the subject of a ciyil action nor within the jurisdiction of tho district court. It cannot be, rules tho supremo court, that the language of the statute is intended to in- yest the board with a discretion to pay or not if the essential facts are established to its satisfaction. "It seems to us that the statute means this: That beside the certified statement, the board may demand other evidence with a view of knowing if the facts justify the payment of the bounty. If so, its payment is a legal right of the claimant. So long as the facts are open to question it is a matter within the discretion of tho board, but that discretion cannot overrule undisputed facts in favor of the claimant." GOING TO THE KLONDIKE.

Marble of Burt has built a big store in the north part of Emmet county. In speaking of it the Estherville Republican says: It would hardly seem that this store is necessary, yet it must be remembered that the point at which this store is located is probably the farthest from a railroad of any in Iowa. We understand that a postofflce will soon be established there taking the name of Dolliver, •*-•*-•+• In noticing the concert to be given in Emmetsburg by the " Western Stars," the Reporter says: Miss K. Neilson Smith's playing is characteristic, in-so- muoh as it comprises a broad musioian- ly style. She is one whose playing can add brilliancy to any concert program. An artist who never resorts to tricks to captivate an audience. Her fort lies in the remarkable technique, artistic phrasing, and pure intonation. Mr. D. Taylor Smith has a phenomenal voice. Its extended range and pure quality of tone shows that nature has richly endowed him. We prophesy a successful career for one of his musical ability. -i- -f- -*The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad company is one of the great trunk lines that transports all contributions of clothing and provisions made to the starving Cubans over its lines free.

The company merely requires that the cloth shall be blue and that the coat shall be made in sack style.
