The fall campaign is coming and there will be time then and to spare for it. The Courier has made the real purpose of the Teller scheme to pay the national debt in silver perfectly plain to the discriminating reader. No one can mistake its reference to the justice of paying the national debt at 60 cents on the dollar. That is the meat of the whole matter, but not one of the silver senators so much as referred to It In congress. The Courier states their purpose frankly and ingenuously. No one can mistake its explanation of bimetallism. It commits Itself to the system which prevailed in this country prior to 1873, when as everybody knows the silver and gold dollars were never together and under which they would be much farther apart now than before. No one can mistake Its omission this week to repeat its endorsement of the republican idea that every dollar must be kept by public credit as good as every other dollar. For if this idea Is to prevail of what Importance is it to any taxpayer what kind of money Is paid out on the national debt? The whole scheme of the Tellerltes is to force silver, stop paying gold on demand, aljow the debtor to pay In the "cheaper dollar," a term dear to the good old days of.the 38-centgreenbacks, and send the bondholders and everybody else, for Postmaster Hinchon has been getting the same dollar that the bondholder has, packing off with 50- cent silver. And yet the Courier asks " why do the bondholders take gold instead of silver?" Why did B. A. Plummer, who had never thought before of what kind of money his notes were payable in, make them payable in gold as soon as the Bryan campaign began? Why will everybody be again holding his gold if this Teller business goes far enough? The Courier says the Teller resolution is for the purpose of forcing an issue, and the people will decide who are the real friends of national good faith and credit. Well and good, let this be the issue and let the people decide. The republicans will stand on a record of 30 years of the same dollar for everybody, and as Col. Henderson told the Tellerites in the debate in Congress, they will mop the ground with them again just as they did in 1890. and silver" at all, but to pay them in silver alone, because that would at once bring this country to ft silver basis. He said this In his speech, and pointed out exactly why such a resolution now had an entirely different significance than It did in 1878, when Introduced by Stanley Mathews. The public debt Is now by law payable in coin. We presume Senator Allison believes that so long as It is so payable, the treasury Is in a better position thah it would be If tied down to gold on the one hand or silver on the other. If this is his view, why Is it not correct? NEWS AND OOMMENT. Geo. E. Roberts explodes the notion that In some way the holders of national bonds have an advantage in getting their money: " The truth is that the government pays the bondholders just as it pays everybody else. A pensioner is paid with a draft on the United States treasury, drawn by the pension agent. A bondholder Is paid with a similar draft. Neither of them ever goes to the treasury. They cash their drafts at a bank, and that is the end of It so far as they are concerned. The bondholder receives no more for his draft, dollar for dollar, than the pensioner, or any other government creditor. No Injustice is done. The question whether the bonds are payable in gold only or In gold and silver is not worth a moment's discussion so long as our gold and silver dollars are of equal value. The only question in which the public is concerned is whether our gold and silver dollars arc to remain of equal value. The republican party stands for that equality. It wants neither laborers, pensioners nor bondholders paid in cheap money. . Keep all of our money at the gold standard—that Is, at the value of gold—is its watchword. And if that policy over falls the bondholders will be able to endure their losses much more easily than the wage earners." The Boone Republican says it is absurd for newspaper men to smirch their business in order to pull down their competitors. It Is a common fault. Representative Farley's memorial to congress against a bill to permit pooling and to make ticket scalping Illegal caused a big sensation in the house Saturday. It was carried by a tie vote after a lot of maneuvering. The opposition to it was not an endorsement of the pooling bill, but a pro test against the state legislature meddling with the work of congress. PBOPOSED BOAUD OP CONTROL. Senator Healey is back from hiseaat- ern tour of inspection of state institution management. He Is firmer than eyer for the single board of control, and is now drafting the bill its adherents will unite on. Here is his outline: A board of control with strong and broad controlling powers, for all state institutions with the exception of the three educational institutions. Strict accountability of all institutions to this board and of the board to the general assembly. Three members, appointed by the governor, with the consent of two-thirds of the members of the senate, one member to be of the minority party. Commissioners appointed for six years each, salaries to be $8,500 for the chairman and $8,000 each for the other two. A secretary to draw $3,500, and such other clerical aid as is found necessary. An architect to have supervision over the construction of all buildings. Abolish all local trustees. If the matter has not been delayed until too late in the session, as some fear, something like this will be adopted. It has the support of very able and very deliberate legislators, Senator Funk leading In the matter. SENATOR ALLISON'S VOTE. The Emmetsburg Democrat says in its issue of last week: In the senate, on Friday, Wm. B. Allison voted against paying the government's obligations in gold and silver, but he refused to vote for the Lodge amendment, which declared in favor of their payment in gold alone. The Democrat moves that Harvey Ingbam of the Algona UPPISH DBS MOINES be appointed a committee to ascertain just where Mr. Allison stands on this proposition. Wo are afraid the State Register don't read THE UPPEII DBS MOINBS with that care that It should. If it did it would never have coupled the following sentences together; "The Algona UPPEII DBS MOINBS should forsake the straddlelsm to which it is addicted. It is an influential paper and it is perpetuating a heresy. There can be bimetallic money, but only one standard at a time." What has THIS UPPEB DBS MOINES been writing about except that real bimetallism means a single standard and that so long as gold is the dearer metal that standard must be gold? And it is because THE UPPER DBS MOINES has insisted that a gold standard and a real bimetallism are consistent, that it is accused of "straddle- ism" up this way. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. good lecture course Lu Verne hus a started. E. V. Swotting had an important law suit at Estherville last week. El. Dalton of Algona has gone to Spencer as telegraph operator. Warden Madden of the Anamosa penitentiary has opened a clothing store in Spencer. Blue Earth City Post: Music was rendered by the Algona orchestra, which of course was very fine. the action of the senate on the Teller resolution may caqse preparation. Washington Post: When Representative Dolllver made his speech yesterday in behalf of the claim of the Methodist book concern he spoke with much feeling concerning the pioneer preachers, who spread wholesome literature from house to house on the frontier and disseminated the gospel of enlightenment and civilization. He told the house that he must be pardoned for expressing some familiarity with the hardships of early Methodists. In his own home he retained as proud trophies a couple of saddlebags, in which Methodist literature had been carried for many years to homes that were without other reading. He described with much sincerity the hard lot of Methodist preachers and teachers, and when he had finished there was hearty applause on both sides of the house. It can be understood why Mr. Dolllver appreciates so thoroughly the cause of the Methodists, for his father was for many years a Methodist preacher. He has been a frequent visitor in Washington, where he always received many marks of filial affection from the distinguished lowan. Several times at previous sessions Mr. Dolliver's father conducted the devotional exercises in the house. PETEE J. WALKER'S REFORMS. Some Suggestions to Representative FnrJey Prom Jjotts Creek. Peter J. Walker has written a letter to Representative Farley suggesting a number of reforms that he thinks would materially add to the enjoyment of life In Iowa. He calls them squibs and they are enumerated as follows: Squib 1. It Is my Impression that county superintendents of schools ought to be abolished. Just think of 99 county superintendents drawing $1,200 a a year. Count this up and we have to pay by tax $118,800. Then those yearly normal institutes cost $250 each, or a total of $24,760. Then each teacher pays $1 for a certificate. Say 150 teachers to the county, amounts to $14,850, or altogether $168,400. Now how many normal school buildings will this one year's tax build. 1 say It will build four big ones. Then less than this tax will run the four schools and give teachers free tuition. Our teachers should be graduates from these free schools and a certificate from the principal would bo more satisfactory than the county superintendent's certificate. Just think this over with some of your colleagues and see if we can't reform. Squib 2. Let our road laws alone, except that each road district in a congressional township should own its own small tools. Graders, rock crushers and such extra expensive tools should be owned by the township. Squib 3. No board of school directors should be their own auditing board, paying themselves twice what they could often get the service for. A secretary or treasurer should never be elected by the board or allowed to serve in two capacities at the same time. SOME EABLY DAY POETBY, Fotty years ago Algona courted the musses more than it does now. The columns of the manuscript Bee were the receptical of verses clearly Indicating the real talent that entitled the town early in its history to be known as the Athens of Iowa. Macanley says that poetry belongs to the pioneer period of all peoples. In that event our present poetical degeneracy is not necessarily significant. Even advertising in those bouyant days was often verse. H. F. Watson was Algona's merchant and his announcement, Nov. 22,1858 was a follow*: I've cotton, silk and linen goods Tar, turpentine and tea ' With many other fancy things Quite beautiful to see. I've coffee, candles, crape and combs, And augurs, made to bore, Suspenders that will stretch a rod And just a trifle more. I've razor strops and pocket knives And lamp black—rather smutty, Paint, paper, pins and pepper mills And lots of pots and putty. Saleratus, sugar, salt and starch And mouse traps by the score To put your rats and mice to sleep And Just a trifle more. Don't go to Irvington for your goods They're clever chaps I know " As honest as the times admit" And make a handsome show, But you may chance to find again, As you have found before How thoy can " take the feathers off" And just a trifle more. We've good mechanics here in town As ever trod the soil And well content to earn their bread By industry and toil. They'll make or mend you anything, Plough, counter, how or score, And charge exactly what is right And just a trifle more. Then come out to the farm exchange Good friends from far and near, You've everything to hope for there And nothing sure to fear. I'll show you goods and sell'em cheap— A most abundant store Of everything the people want .A-nd just a trifle more. Advertisements were also answered in verse. J. W. Moore, after whom Moore street is named, lost a pair of buckskin mittens. The Bee, in stating that thoy had not been found, versified as follows: Like some thieving dog that had stolen a Sneaked^ff, and the girls had to go home alone. But one poet had a real Through your paper, Mr. To all .voumr men* and all old bachelowtop. itor, I wisn to To all ynmm an a o Though literary ladies seem perfect in your 'Tis distance lends enchantment to the view. It must have been a literary gathering that the taffy pullers deserted so incontinently. The poet of the literary ladles is not always up to good literary form, but the sentiment is perfectly clear in the follow- Jtiig lines: From early dawn till day is done And shadows of evening appear With sunken eyes and nerves unstrung O'er fictitious sorrows, she's dropping a tear, While the trousers of John, our only son, A flag of truce display in the rear. With inky fingers and uncombed hair And dress on all askew She's eternally writing in that same old chair In slipshod shoes she's wooing the muse, Dear me, what shall I do? Fortunately the copy of the Bee that contained this doleful lament was the St. Valentine's day edition and the one- cent valentine poetry not yet having reached the frontier, the pioneers indulged freely in original contributions of which oue verse will leaven a whole basketful of marital laments: Oh could thine eyes bewitching glance Meet mine in that enraptured trance When, fond my love, I gaze upon thee How great would bo the ecstacy, etc. In spite of this and more of like kind, however, there is one lament that shows bad for the Algona of the early days : Tell mo ye winged winds That round my pathway roar Do yo not know some spot Where women weep no more, * Some lone and pleasant dell Whore slandered girls may find A rest from candidates for holl, Where all are good and kind?

J. Smith to go into the insurance business at Algona and hus a good position. Mr. Shriver was taken with a lameness In one limb about a year ago, which Incapacitates him for farm work. Liverraore Gazette: The familiar face, but somewhat reduced frame of Glen Brunson once more presides at the Dougherty-Brunson drug store. His brother, who has filled his place durinar his sickness, returned with his THE UPPER DES MOINES has no warrant to speak for Senator Allison. Jt knows no more about why he voted as he did than anyone ought to know who has watched his record on the money question. THE UPPER DES MOINES assumes that he refused to endorse the Lodge gold resolution, because that would end all efforts for bimetallism, be in effect a repudiation of half of the St Louis platform, and notify Europe that our international com- was on, a wild goose chase. President MoKiniey proposed that the new national bank currency should be redeemed in gold Senator Allison objected on the ground thai this would be a discrimination against QUr silver that would lead to serious results.

Squib 4. Every land owner should be compelled to mow his half of the highway and keep it clean of trash, and supervisors should be empowered to do the work and charge against the land. Squib 5. I think elections once in four years would be a great saving and ample. Just think, five men sitting one day each year at a cost of $4 to $5 a day and extra for taking the poll book in. In a congressional township every poll could be cast in three hours with proper rules. I think that the Australian ballot is an expensive humbug- trood for printer's bills. Squib 6. No man or woman should be allowed to vote until he or she has worked the two days' road tax and has a receipt to show for It. Squib 7.

Nation's ON THE CUBAN QUESTION, WHAT DOLLIVBB SAID AfiOtJT IT, Characteristic Speech of the Con* gressman-Quotes Grant as the Idenl of Patriotism. Congressman Dolliver made one of his characteristic speeches a few days ago in defense of the republican management of the house of representatives, It arose out of the Cuban debate.' He said: " The question of Cuba is not a new question. For seven years the administration of Grant was called upon to deal with an insurrection in nearly every respect on all fours with the insurrection of today, and at the end of that time—seven years of responsibility, seven years of anxieties, of wor ry—in a message sent to this house, he vindicated this policy of the administration and warned the country that intervention in the affairs of Cuba would be not only unwise, but injudicious. For my part, I do not aspire to a larger patriotism than that which governed the official career of Ulysses S. Grant. For my part, If I were looking for a wiser patriotism, I would not resort to the rural districts of Missouri. My friend complained that the republicans on this side of the house are under a tyranny and the mastery of one man. I deny It. There is no authority that constrains the republican majority here except the policy of the republican party and the administration of a republican president. My friend says that we are slaves. It is a little peculiar that we have to go to Missouri for information in respect to the condition of servitude under which we labor and under which we have suffered so many months. It is truo we have a leadership in this house, and I for one have very often felt a certain sense of satisfaction that I have possibly expressed, that we have a leadership of brains and character that men may follow and follow without any loss of self respect. I understand perfectly well the failure and difficulty of my friend from Missouri, and I appreciate it. The only leadership the democratic party in this house has had is the leadership of its own party. It was put into the hands of a young friend of mine from Texas (Mr. Bailey), and he had to fight for it every day at the extra session. One day the gentleman from Kansas (Mr. Simpson) got it away from him, and the next day the scepter of authority and influence of the party was seized by that picturesque character that has appeared among us from the far distant coast of Washington (Mr. Lewis). The next day the gentleman from Tennessee was fighting to see who should have the leadership of the democratic party, while in the background, always melodious and ready with his advice and ready to seize the falling scepter of his friend, was the gentleman from Missouri (Mr. De Armond), who has just taken his seat and who, in that congress, and in this, has delivered more speeches with more ease and less effect than any man that has appeared in the deliberations of congress for the last ten years that I have had the honor to serve on this floor."
