CHB1STIE, Attest: Chairman County Board. W. A. H1GGIS3, County Auditor. CO.1IME.VrS FRoTl THE CAl'lTOL. A Member of the "Third House" Con- tributes XCWM.V Xotes Anent the Legislature. Editor Standard Thinking the impressions of a looker- on in this saintly city might interest your readers, I will write a few. The officers of the senate were re- elected with the exception of sergeant- at-arms and assistant-sergeant-at-anns; for the last-mentioned office A. O. Styve of Freebom eounty was a candi- date for re-election. For several bal- lots he either led or tied his competi- tors, but was beaten on the last ballot by two votes. Circumstances over which his friends had no control led to his defeat. Two years ago his present competitor was defeated by him. Sec- retary Cutter and Assistant Secretary Burt AV. Day were unanimously re'- elected. On Thursday Lieut. Gov. Face an- nounced the senate committees, plac- ing Senator Halvorsen on the judici- ary, retrenchment aud reform, roads and bridges, printing, and engrossment committees, making him chairman of the latter. A resolution pertaining to the appointment of clerks of the com- mittees was offered, but notice of de- bate being given, It went over to the next session. As the senate immedi- ately adjourned until next week, those looking for clerkships are thus placed on the "ragged edge" of uncertainty for a time. This adjournment was op'- posed by Senator Halvorsen. Some seventeen bills have been introduced in the senate and several in the house. On Friday the house adjourned tu Tuesday. The fact that the members from Freeborn county were obliged to be absent this week did not give those seeking positions here the prestige their presence would have lent. 1 have heard several of the friends of Speaker Graves commend Mr. Morgan for his action after the speakership matter was decided against him. The Farmers' Alliance has been in session at the capitol the last three days, time occupied by an earnest dis- cussion of many questions of great importance, and in election of officers. Many comical episodes occurred in the debate, which at times ivere so hot and exciting that one might think the whole thing would end in a division or a dissolution of the alliance. On the election of officers the excitement and feeling outrivalled anything ever seen in any convention in Freeborn county. Donnelly, Gibbs, Darrett. Hixon, Major Hotchkiss and many others participat- ed. It was more of a circus and free light than I ever saw before, but all was peace and harmony at the close of the discussions and election of officers. 1 f a constant "moving of the waters" is a sign of life, the Alliance is in a healthy condition. I cannot even guess who will be chosen U. S. senator, but Donnelly will have more votes than i expected be- fore 1 came to St. Paul. A few sleighs and cutters were on the streets this morning. On coming out of the capitol yesterday a stranger from away down east remarked to me, "that he wondered when people in Min- nesota would commence working their gardens." This was before the little snow fell. T. A Wood Won! for Dr. Von Editor 8tanfla.nl: Will you allow me space in your pa- per for these few lines: I feel it my duty and only right and proper to let the public know of a remarkable cure performed by Dr. J. 1J. Von Berg of Albert Lea on my ten-year old "son. He was taken ill with hing fever and dropsy of the chest last May. had a doctor from Blooming Prairie twenty- live times, but without obtaining re- lief. AVe sent for Dr. Yon Berg after the boy had been sick nearly four months. After he had operated four times my son was entirely cured, and is now as strong aud ever. Dr. Von Berg drew from him over a gallon of water. I cannot express my great gratitude to the doctor for what he has done for us. 1 write this without the doctor's knowledge or consent. X. X. IlAdXA. Blooming Prairie P. .Tan. 8. 1SS9. A Printer Should .Make His "Impres- sion" from the Right "Form.'' The Wabasha Democrat says: "A young lady explained to a printer last evening the difference between print- ing and publishing, and at the conclu- sion of her remarks by way of illustra- tion she said: "You may print a kiss on my cheek, but you must not publish it." The Jackson Keptiblic very prop- erly "corrects" such "proof" with "types" from a "case" with which he and every good printer is and ought to be familiar. Bro. Allen says, and he need not blush to say it either: "That may do for a AVabasha printer, but a printer in this town that would print a kiss on a woman's cheek when she had her lips with her would be run out of town." Poultry Wanted At the Albert Lea Creamery for which the highest cash price will be paid. Bring the early hatched first as the late ones are small and poor. AV. HAZELTON. lEWSPAPERI lEWS'PAFERf
