During the campaign preceding the election much was said regarding the depression and hard times of the country. There has without question been more or less depression In various sections of the country but as we look back over the past we see periods that were really more disastrous. One of the troubles with the country today Is that we all have been trying to live just as we did during the boom period when prices were at a peak, wages were advanced and everyobdy spent money Just as rapidly as they secured It with the Impression that conditions would last forever as they were then. The slump struck first in the agricultural districts and the farmer was the first to suffer. His condition naturally affected his buying power and when he ceased to buy everything placed upon the market, the manufacturers, who also figured their prosperous condition would continue for all time, felt its effect and then labor suffered. Conditions are gradually being readjusted. Farm produce is yet lower than it should be In proportion to many other things, but gradually other things are coming down in price. Clothing, for Instance, Is as cheap if not cheaper than it was before the boom. When agricultural implements and a few other articles become cheaper the farm produce will be on a par with them and the farmer will not complain. We are gradually coming out of the habit of buying everything offered regardless of price and are only buying the real necessities with all of the modern improvements made, including roads and new buildings. This country will be sitting pretty when the adjustments are completed and prosperity will no longer be around the corner, but with us. SUPPLY AND DEMAND. ~ Naturally, the law of supply and demand governs prices. When the supply is short, the demand gives the producer an opportunity to raise prices. •When the supply is large, the consumer has the advantage and can fix the prices,. If he knows how. This law is not, working out with farm products (Tor some reason. This year\s corn crop is twenty per cent short of what it was last year, yet the price on the •• Chicago market is twelve or fourteen cents less per, bushel than it was a . „ year ^wto- ^Tfr? same may be said of '• ''other 'I'ayfn^xprwiuctsi and the natural law of mipply'arid demand is not working. Somebody, somewhere, is fixing the prices, yet the argument is bein- made that the government cannot pass a law that will Rovern prices and give- the farmer a Just return for his . produce. It is a bad condition and if the government cannot govern prices they might at least do something to prevent others from fixing them. News and Comment. Some of the people who are starving are depending on the old saying that the world owes them a living Statistics say that every smoker pays $7.50 yearly in a tax on tobacco. When a husband and wife both smoke it costs $15.00. During October the state treasurer of Iowa received $1,127,165.50 in gasoline THE WAY OF TRANGRESSORS. There appears to be more crime and our prisons hold more people than ever before. Crime is rampant everywhere and bank hold-ups are an every day occurrence. A few get by with their stealing for a time, but they eventually get caught. It is the first offense that gets the young fellows In bad. If they are successful and escape arrest they want to try it again. It Is easy money and free spending. The only advice we have is don't start Once started the older heads at the game have the young fellows under their control and do the dictating with a promise of wealth if successful and if the attempt is not made they are threatened wiUi "a ride" It is not the bandit who suffers most but the loved ones nt home. Young men should think of this when being influenced to start a criminal career that will as certain as death lead to the gallows or prison. The example of a Kossuth young man with an aged mother and other loved ones fell from grace and last week was taken to Fort Madison where he will spend the balance of his days behind the bars wearing stripes, is a fair example. Bank robbing looked like easy money, now he is paying the penalty and has brought disgrace to the family, all of whom have been knov/n for years as honest, hard-working and respectable people. It all happened because he fell into bad company and listened to the tales of easy money. His experience is only one in thousands and should be on example to others who might be tempted. News «',iB* By Pred Holmes, Wash. Correspondent for the U. D. M.-R. Washington, 2.—The arrest conviction of Nov. and the Long Winter of 1880 and 1881 Remembered C. B. Hutchins Tells of the Longest Winter Ever Recorded. WAS CO. SURVEYOR AT THAT TIME. Dick Palmer, Walter Ward and Mr. Hutchins Alone Survive of the Surveying Party. (By C. B. Hutchlns.) I wish to make a correction of some of the statements made in the Republican of Octobtr 22 in regard to the October snow storm of 1880. In the first place it was not a blizzard, according to the usual definition. Second, it was not very cold, I doubt if it was any colder than we have already had it here this October. Third, it did not stop the railroads from running. Fourth it was not very severe on stock. I doubt if there was an animal lost, during that storm, in Kossuth county. Fifth, practically all of the snow of that storm went off before winter began in earnest, and there was no difficulty in corn picking for three weeks after that storm, until winter began in earnest, on the eighth day of November. Perhaps the reasons why I feel so sure of my statements may not be entirely uninteresting to your readers. I was county surveyor in 1880 and was employed to run the land lines of the Chicago & Northwestern railroad during the latter part of September and October of that year. Huning the land lines consisted of measuring across the line of the survey tax. Boy, that's where money goes. some of the ourglar may be a source of satisfaction but not often do they result in restoring the pilfered jewelry to the bureau draw- jer or the missing cash to the Inside pocket of the closeted vest. Satisfaction Imay be one of those ..grand and glorious feelings", but it would hardly be considered by a banker as good security for a loan. And if, as we are told, the booty of the larceny of a purse is "trash" by comparison with that of the theft of a good name, how much less in the latter case, is the satisfaction of ultimate vindication? * * * * A week or so ago, your correspondent referred to the charges of Ralph H. Kelley, a former employee of the land office, of dishonesty and misfeasance in the distribution of oil shale lands by the department of the interior. It was then state that whether Mr. Kelley substantiated his accusations or Secretary Wilber exonerated his department the odor from a probe would be disagreeable and the inevitable, scar unsightly. * * * * It may or may not be significant that Mr. Kelley's alleged expose came at a time when a heated political campaign was in progress. It may or may not be , iuwj iijav lcl ^ u „„„„„. qually significant that all speed re- ! (£T young ^ane we" had.""

This enabled the company to properly locate the, line of their road on their maps. My helpers were Dick Palmer, Walter Ward and Peter Swanson. Three of us are living after fifty years. Peter Swanson, the largest, and strongest man of the four, died in 1892. At that time there was but one house near the line of survey from where it crossed the Des Moines river, south of Bancroft to the Minnesota line. That house was about a mile north of Bancroft, on the right side of the line of survey. The distance from the river to the Minnesota line, straight north is at least seventeen miles, and further, as the road runs, as it bears east from Bancroft to Elmore more than six miles. A few miles .northwest from where Bancroft now is, lived a retired Baptist or Congregational preached on a homestead, by the name of Spell. His home was our headquarters while running the lines from-the, river north, until we neared the Minnesota line, and then we had to go about a mile and a half into Minnesota to find a place to stay over night. There was no Elmore then. Up till the middle of October we had had very fine weather in which to do our work, and had completed the work north to the Minnesota line, leaving some between Algona and the river, south of where Burt is, taking advantage of the good weather to do the work farthest from home. While the storm lasted a part of three days it was in length a three days storm. I have had a talk with Dick Palmer and we have compared notes and while we do not agree in regard to all of the circumstances, we do in regard to most of them. The afternoon of the 15th of October was cloudy, misty and threatening a storm. The storm began in earnest some time during the night, at first rain, then sleet, then snow and it continued all the next day and part of the night. In the morning it began to clear up and after dinner we struck out for home. While staying at the Spells we lived like kings. Walter and Dick took their shot guns along, and as prairie chickens, ducks, geese and cranes abounded in great numbers, we had plenty, and as Mrs. Spell was a good cook, we enjoyed the wild game, especially two cranes which she stuffed and cooked turkey fashion. I do not think that I ever tasted the meat of anv better than that of little by reason of Its dampness. We waited a few days until most of the snow had melted and then finished our work. We started our work Rt the south line of the county near LuVerne. As the road runs in a northwest direction from LuVerne to Algona and from Bancroft to Elmore in a northeast direction there were a good many mire lines to run than there would have been if the road had run straight north. We had to find the government corners as well as to run the lines Some times this took quite a while, but when found they were renewed by digging the pits and renewing the mounds. It may interst some to know that when original surveys were made a section corner was known by a mound with a pit on the south of it, a quarter section corner a mound and pit on the east side of it, and a township corner by a mound and pits on at least two sides, the north emd the south sides. The finding and renewing the corners while doing this work was of real service to me afterward. I had as part of my work as surveyor the aiding of many non-residents, who came here to look up their lands Formerly, when called on to do that it was necessary to start from some known corner and run by the compass and by counting the revolutions of n wagon or buggy wheel, to determine the distance. Having renewed the corners all along the line of the railway it was an easy matter for me- to go right to any corner nearest to the land to be seen and sometimes one of the corners might be a corner of the land we wished to find. Winter began in earnest on the afternoon of the 8th day of November. I remember dltsinctly just where I was and what I was doing. I can agree with almost anything that anybody mav say in regard to the winter of 1880-1881. The snow blocked the railroads for months and was I think on the average two feet or more in the cornfields. Many, perhaps most of the farmers, had not finished husk- Ing their corn, and many took hand- sleds during the winter and husked corn to feed then- stock I was more fortunate than most farmers.

We took turns and had thirty acres" left in the field to be husked in the spring. I have lived in Iowa seventy-five "years and it is sixty-one years since I came to Kossuth county, and in some respects the winter of 1880-1 was the worst I ever saw. It was not as cold as some other winters, but there was more snow, more stormy days, the snow stayed on longer, drifted more, making it the most difficult winter for people to get around to do anything of all the winters in the seventy-five years. The more the railroads tried to open their track the more difficult it became. The rotary snow plow had not been invented. They had to depend on bucking the snow off by means of the plow placed in front of the engine, or by men with shovels throwing the snow out of the cuts. Every time this was done the deeper the cuts became and the more difficult it was the next time they tried to open them. There may have been places in the shade of some grove, or on the north side of some hill or building where some little of the snow of the October storm remained all winter, but there was snow in my pasture on the 7th of May, six months after winter really began on November 8th. The spring of 1881 was the latest I have known in seventy-five years. The snow was so deep on the level that it took much longer than usual for it to thaw off so people could get on to their fields. That spring I began sowing wheat on the 23rd day of April. I have sowed wheat several times as early as the 9th of March, have known of others sowing earlier, but in my own experience there was forty-five days between the earliest and the latest sowing, and about that difference in the time between sowing and reaping. In 1881, which was a wet hot season, I began cutting my wheat on the 23rd of July three months from the time it was sowed. I have had the seed in the ground four months and fifteen days before harvesting began. The wheat of 1881 was poor in quality. It needs not less than four months to grow and mature properly. There was no such extremely cold weather, lasting for days and weeks at a time, nor any so severe blizzards in 1881 as during some other winters. The most it is noted for is for the great amount of snow, the length of time that it stayed on the nolivated Mr. Kelley in firing broadside, and whatever may have in- lunnrerl .such unprecedented celerity by the department of justice in dissipat- 111; tho salvo, an interested body politic, will not consider the incident closed by the election returns. j * * * * Doubtless it was unfortunate that Mr. Kelley chose to enlighten his fellow citizens through the medium of a prominent partisan newspaper while they were preparing to decide the fate of national administrative policies. But if 'two wrongs don't make a right," no more do two errors of judgment improve a bad .situation, and much of the comment here is to the effect that Mr. Kelley's charges were taken altogether too seriously and handled with a little too much unseemly haste to dispel the idea that politics, after all, is the chief ingredient of the whole stew. * # * « Immediately following the department of justice finding that the Kelloy charges we're without "foundation, merit or substance," President Hoover publicly denounced them, asserting that the "baseless accusations" constituted "an attempt to charge odious oil scandals to his administration" The president also condemned a newspap- (Hving lne team _ the drlver eac h time taking the mittens and others walking or running to keep warm.

Said the Newsr "The Justice department's complete exoneration of the interior department in the case of the oil shale charges is the sort of thing to be expected when an administration investigates Itself.

A careful student of documents and of human nature might find plenty of evidences of misguidedness and a kind of obsession often afflicting an official mind, but not even suggestion of criminal intent. * * * * The prevailing sentiment in Wash- intrton is that Mr. Kelley's charges call for a more thorough investigation than they have yet received and by an agency the motives perhaps less partisan by substantial men of that party. 1 V V W It is considered here that by this manifesto the Hoover administration threw itself openly and vigorously Into the cafpaign for the control of congress. For the first time Mr. Hoover recognized the fact that a congressional campaign was in progress. His previous statements and speeches had betn of which are The Public Lands Committee of the senate has been suggested. It seems certain that this committee will initiate an investigation as soon as congress convenes. Possibly Mr. Kelley's charges may be "reckless, baseless and infamous," but It is thought that the people generally, irrespective of party affiliations, will be inclined to withhold final judgment until the cmopletion of a little more painstaking Inc/uiry by a little less directly interested tribunal. * » * By comparison, the undertaking of Col.

He must coordinate and direct all the plans for relief of the unemployed and see that each local organization is posted on what the others are doing.
