confined to the evening and early morning hours There will be no cessation of labor and not a single tourist wiH be left unplucked because of excess of patriotic indulgence There will be no

of Capt W H Ingham of Algona Tuesday evening at the home of his son George W Ingham at Olympia will be received in Iowa with regret not only on account of the affection which Iowa people have for his distinguished son Harvey Ing ham and to whom their sympathy is extended but also because it re moves a wonderfully patent charac ter of Iowas miraculous develop ment Itwas the Captain Ingham MIDDLE WESTERN CAMPAIGNS ABE NEABING FINISH from Page of the early fifties who blazed the trail but set not the only high bursts the Swiss point to the prece dents established by the patriots of 1291 who did not permit the job of winning independence to interfere with their orderly pursuits and who returning to their homes took up again the care of their herds Independence days in Switzerland are not legal holidays At sundown following a day in which nobody has neglected his cheese making or tour ist plucking or waiting or moun tain climbing or yodeling but has followed his accustomed toil the bells in the churches are set to ring ing merrily In a sublime concert of gratitude which finds a thousand echoes in the mountains with which Switzerland is so liberally supplied The bells out the old refrain Mountaineers ever will be and thepeople answer by building bonfires on the mountain tops and along thV heights Rarely an orator holds forth to remind the people of the significance of the day and to hold up for imitation the character and deeds of their ances tors but as a rule the bonfires and the church services constitute the entire It was on the first of August 1291 that the men of Url Lower Unterwalden and Schyz entered in to a defensive league which was the foundation of the present republic The canton was peopled by the Cumbrians who leaving their original habitation In Scandinavia invaded Italy during the days of the Roman empire They were defeated by the Roman general Marlus and fled into Helvetia as Switzerland was anciently called where they re mained and gave the name of their canton to the whole confederacy The league formed In1291 was successful and by 1353 had grown to eight cantons and in 1613 to thirteen Various surrounding ter ritories were acquired but no ad dition was made to the number of cantons forming the league until 1798 when under the influence of the revolutionists of France the Hel ivetic republic was formed with a regular constitution In 1803 Na poleon stuck his finger tn the Swiss pie gave the republic a new consti tution and increased the number of cantons to nineteen Next year the Swiss will celebrate the centennial ot that compact by which the neutrality of Switzerland and the inviolability of Switzerland were guaranteed oy the powers of standard of intelligence integrity morality and sterling citizenship has made Iowa so prosperous and so potential The oldest pioneer of Koasuth county and the first bar ber of Algona At the age of 87 he has passed on a remarkable man in the most remarkable age of the times He saw the physical equip ment of the state develop from the ox cart to the automobile and fly Ing machine from the tallow dip to the electric light in the rural home from the monthly or bimonthly post to the rural daily delivery and the telephone and wireless He saw high ideals of fifty years which seemed ephemeral dreams then fulfilled in government and state and he saw real reforms hoped for fifty years ago but never expected then finally accomplished Capt Ingham was a man of courage as well as ofmen tal endowment and when danger threatened did not hesitate to lead a company of similarly brave men into the face of death to protect their homes and the homes of others It is a comfort as the years course along toward the sunset of life to be able to look back and say of devel opment and uplift I was a part of and certainly the late Ing ham could trace a well defined im print which he has made in Iowas great development in the past three score years wheat and other crops promised for the state this year would be in grave danger of neglect Fortunately for the state and the prosperity ofits citizens the campaign wil end with the primaries next Tuesday leaving the people free to turn their atten tion jtrom politics On theeve of for a choice of candidates for all public officers from United States senator and governor down to county offi cials the situation Is admittedly the most complicated in the history of the state The multiplicity of can didates is the distinguishing feature In the six years Kansas has had primary elections there have never been so many candidates as this year There are nearly 100 candi dates for places on the state and congressional ballots and in addi tion to these there is the long list of candidates for county township and city offices while an additional ballot is provided for the nonpar tisan candidates for the judgships The contest for United States Senator with nearly a dozen aspir ants In the field is naturally attract ing most attention The heads of the state tickets are the only places that can be predicted with any certainty Governor Hodges is assured of re nomtnatlon by the Ar thur Capper the Topeka publisher who was the gubernatorial candidate two years ago when he was defeated by Hodges by only 29 votes will again be named to head the repub lican state ticket The progressives have picked Heury Allen as their candidate for governor For other places on the state ticket and for representatives in congress there are numerous candidates in both the democratic and republican ranks You Cant sppy out a better bar

association has just made public his ariinial report to that body of one thousand members in which he holds no hope for reduced hard coal He who are familiar with the conditions under which anthracite is mined sold and transported take no stock in the various attempts made or proposed by the state and federal gQverninents to lower prices Every condltlonfpoints to an upward trend in anthracite prices Increasing wages to miners the necessity of working thinner and thinner veins deeper mining and the general In creasing cost of living all these conditions point to a constant In crease in anthracite prices The consumer moreover Is becoming more and more particular about preparation and all of which tends to increase the cost of coal The retail trade would cer tainly welcome cheaper anthracite but it sees little hope for it in spite of the political promises of parties of condidates The anthracite tax bill the roadway bill the Clayton bill every one of these measures increases the cost of producing or selling anthracite and therefore in creases the price to the consumer The truth of the matter is that an thracite prices are generally fixed by the immutable law of supply and

it would futile This discouraging message was poured into Mr Chismans ear with the expectation that the sorrowful news would be conveyed to Guy Hall the unsuccessful candidate for the Blakesburg postoffice whose em missary Chisman Is But such la not the case Bill picked up his carpet bag and hied himself to New York to lay the claims of Mr Hall to the of fice before Jerry Sullivan collector of the port of New York who knows Iowas political complexion like a book BmmiBsary Bill hopes to have Mr Sullivan explain to Mr Burleson that Guy Hall is a Scandinavian of the same degree of nationality as the Texan cabnet officer that his influ ence In the bailiwick of Adams town ship and environs In Wapello county wherein Blakesburg Is the pivotal point is of of such proportions that Hall Is by all odds the best equipped man for the place Mr Sullivan will be told by the wily Chisman that Upp does not live in Blakesburg but is a commuter that is he lives four miles distant from the postoffice and therefore is not a truly Blakesbur gian Mr Chlaman will endeavor t convince Mr Sullivan that he should In turn seek to convince Mr Burle son that Mr Upp should not have the appointment and that Mr Hall should have it And in view of Mr Chlsmans past success in winning his points in be half of aspirants to government po sitions it Is expected that Guy Halls chances of being declared the post master of Blakesburg are not alto gether nil The TJppHall postoffice tangle perhaps is nearer solution than nu merous other fourth class postmaster Jobs In the Sixth district and Iowa in general if word from the postof fice department Is to be taken as gospel Anxious to settle democrats in offices where republicans now hold sway Congressman Kirkpatrick has made daily inquiries of the de partment as to the status of the twenty offices he has to parcel out The most encouraging information thrie far elicited was word today that despite tie fact that the examina only tlons for the offices were com pleted eight weeks ago the papers of the applicants have been correct ed only down as far as those whose names begins with the first letteer of th alphabet The department are working on the Bs now but little hope is entertained for definite de cisions on any of the applicants un til the latter part of Auguust visiting his constituents in the Hawkeye state Congressman Kirkpatrick is seri ously considering the appointment of a new member of the pension ex amoners board in Wapello county due to the failure to receive word from Dr J C Bos accepting the ap pintment of several weeks ago Dr Box has thus far failed to acknowl edge his receipt of the appointment and Congressman Kirkpatrick Is un der the impression that Dr Box does not desire to serve The efforts of Congressman Vell mer in behalf of soldiers widows and veterans of the civil war have been fruitful this week as will be attested by the action of the House on eight items In the current pension bill Through Mr Vollmers efforts four widows of soldiers have been granted pension increases two sol diers have additions to their month ly checks and two other widows heretofore without remuneration from the government have been placed on the pension rolls The membership of Mr Vollmer on the Invalid pensions committee has been the foundation of pensions of a month to Charoltte of Mus catlne and Carrie Record Cpman che Iowa William P Wilson of Iowa City had been increased from to 40 a month and the same increase has been procured for Wil liam H McCune of Clinton The re fusal by thesenate to grant

cases to the House and he succeeded in get ting increases from 30to 36 a month in each case case of Mary E Turner of Columbus Junc tion and Emily M Walker of Daven port whom the senate rejected as
