Then under present conditions if is impossible for a person, not wealthy to be elected and it often happens that undesirable candidate, by spending a mint of money, are nominated and elected to office. More money has been spent by candidates for office in Chicago, Pennsylvania and Michigan in recent years,in order to obtain office than they could honestly earn If they held the office for a life time Today In almost any state In the union a candidate with unlimited wealth can secure an election. There should be a law that would prevent any candidate from spending over a certain amount of money in any election and that amount should be fixed so that a poor man would stand an equal show with a rich man.

A Webster City man says near beer is lacking in punch and pep, that it is like kissing your own wife. J. Ham Lewis spent $35 in his recent campaign in Illinois. He should have spent fifty cents more and had those whiskers trimmed. One thing is consoling and that is the fluctuation of the grain market and of the stock market has no effect upon the growing crops. That thirteen month a year idea might work out eventually but it's hard enougli to greet collectors courteously twelve times a year. Prance accuses the American soldiers of bringing potato blips into that country, but most of the boys brought back bugs that would indicate they made a poor swap. more Senator Brookhart receives comments and criticisms than any other man in the United States senate and yet they sit up and take notice when he goes on the war path. Iowa land is as low in price today as it ever will be. The trend is already upward and with an investment that produces wealth annually farm lands are going to be in big demand before very long, Senator Steck is starting a campaign upon the taiiff. The senator was one of the democrats who voted against the new tariff law. He says it is not what Iowa wants and everybody knows that Is true, but to be honest senator, Isn't It the best that could be secured and Isn't it better than the old law? ease? Webster city Journal: So the appointment of Mr. MacNlder is a bit of political finess, is it? It was made was it, to put Brookhart in a hole? Well, it will not keep him there long. In fact, he has already began digging himself out. So far as the Legion is concerned, Brookhart need not fear the MacNider following, nor fear to reckon with Iowa. He has fought that following at every primary and will have to flght it again if a candidate, and the thing for him to do is to do right and accept the C9nsequences without wincing. He is evidently going to do that judging from his attitude toward confirmation of the MacNider appointment. If Mr. MacNider is so popular in Iowa, and having an insatiable appetite for public office, why doesn't he go before the people and win his spurs at a popular election instead of seeking appointive positions at the hands of public officials?

It had been several years since their last meeting here, but they have held other reunions In Algona or elsewhere since, coming long distances at times to be in attendance. Some 'were missing from the picnic last Friday but it was none the less enjoyable, and the rain, which would have caused a postponement In an earlier day, made no difference now with modern conveyances and paved roads. None of the ladies, of course, now wear the names they did when they were belles of Livermore, and some of them have changed them more than once; but they, and all who are sufficiently interested,- will recognize them by their original cognomen, and among them were Lou Btil- lion and Viva Norton of Algona, Stella Cady • (we almost said Sanderson) of Northfield, Minnesota, Maggie Ray of Eagle Grove, Bertha Sanderson and Maggie Farrell of Livermore, Jessie -..J"* 8 Fourth or JuTy'celebratoiragaui i- this year at the Exposition Park In Fbrt Dodge.

Now the militant bishop, who recently referred to Tinkham as a "biuster- inf, cowardly congressman," will have a chance to sue the national legislator for libel if he wishes. In fact after the threat he has made, he will lose face if he doesn't start such a suit The speech which offended the southern churchman most severely was one in which Tinkham stated that until Cannon accounts for the $48,300 he received from E. C. Jameson of New York for the anti-Smith campaign in 1928 the bishop "will stand convicted in the eyes of all honest man of having appropriatt-d that money for his own use." Whether Cannon can now win a libel suit against Tinkham or not, he will no longer have the satisfaction of calling the congressman cowardly. Congressional immunity is a desirable and probably necessary protection for legislators, but in this case Mr. Tinkham did well to voluntarily divest himself of his privilege. Unless the bishop can now accoun- satisfactorily for his 1928 campaign fund, he will have placed himself in an unenviable position.
