Ile thanked the convention for endorsing him as a delegate to St. Louis and promised if elected to do all in his power to aid in the nomination of McKinley. After adjourning, the local republican league met and elected the following delegates to the state legue, which meets in St. Paul Wednesday: C. S. Edwards, Emil Nelson and It. s. Farnsworth. The convention was entirely harmonious, there being hardly a dissent to the proceedings, and while the turn of the tide to McKinley was quite a surprise, it was accepted ny the Heed followers and the very few Davis men with good nature, and all finally joined in the stampede with well-balanced agility and unlimbered enthusiasm. Company. Of All Us. Important to G. A. R. Hen. At the meeting of the Western Pas senger Association, held this week in St. Louis, the B., C. R. & Nr. Co. gave notice that it would make the rates and limitations requested by Hie na tional commander for Hie national encampment G. A. It., to be held in St. ■’aul Sept. 1st to 5th. Under these arrangements tickets outside of a two-hundred and fifty mile limit will be sold at rate of one cent per mile, good until Sept.loth,with the understanding that an extension until Sept. BOtli may be secured by depositing the ticket with the joint agent in St. Paul. This announcement will be very gratifying to the members of the order and indicates clearly that the policy of the “Cedar Rapids Route” is to be on all occasions as liberal as any of its competitors. The Cheapest Rates. Railroad fare is an important item of expense. Tile agents of the Minneapolis & St. Louis railroad are always in position to give the lowest rates obtainable. They take pleasure In giving information.    7t20 and no public improvements Uke water works, street lights, etc. This was done in order to show that a town without saloons will never amount to anything, it furthermore stat* i that * SH* ltS b0nded Bl®,OOO would be a good deal oil should it lose the saloons. Albert Lea is soon to vote on the saloon question again, and as the saloon element may use the same arguments again, we find it our duty to protest against such gross misrepresentation us Hie above. * • Th:.r«a8,0” f llat taxes may seem high is not the hick of saloons but the fact yal nation of property in Lake .nv' ^n.^ie circular it is stated that “Lake Mills pays taxation at the rate of 7 cents on the dollar. In other words, they pay the full value of their property in taxes every fifteen years making it practically a slow system of confiscation. ’ The fact is assessment of Lake Mills property is just one-tenth of its actual value, so that 7 cts. on the dollar would be just seven-tenths of a cent on the dollar of the actual value. .Slow confiscation indeed! The following statement from the county auditor shows this plainly "I do hereby certify that the reason the levy for taxes in Lake Mills so high is that the assessed valuation of real estate in said town is not up to the average valuation, and when valuation is low the levy will be high. For instance: The actual value of a certain property is $4,500 it is valued at 8450 a property worth 81.00D is valued at 81(A), and so in each case.” J. I-a ALSON, <’0. Auditor. As long as Lake Mills had saloons it was a miserable place; now it is a respectable town, with a steady growth and large business. It bas a public school aud school house that would be considered a honor to a town twice the size of Lake Mills. A splendid system of electric lights exists and substantial waterworks are now about completed Mnce ive got rid of the saloons drunk-eness has decreased and good order and morality greatly increased. We will not go into details in regard to money squandered, tile sins, misery and crimes caused by the saloons, hut we do not exaggerate when we say: I ne saloons are schools of ungodliness and all kinds of immorality, yea, a door co Heil. tor the sake of truth and temperance the undersigned citizens of Lake Mills protest against using our town as an advertisement for saloons, as was done *    ^    saloons advocates of Albert Lea.    Respectfully, t I * *    „ liEV- A■ J- Lee. f.

To the standard Relative to correspondence of your last week's number, signed T.-P to winch you say it raises only the pecuniary phase of the license question which is of second consideration:" .Now, honestly, don't it seem that the pecuniary phase is quite important? Doyen think the preachers, for instance would work so hard to close the saloons if they did not hope Hie money now spent in saloons would afterwards flow into the church treasury. Would the reverend gentlemen ii ho now talk saloon and license more than scripture or salvation care to have all the sinners from the saloon crowd into the churches unless such sinners became paying members? RutT.-I’.’s article wasaimed towards keeping taxation low for the oner yet sober laboring man, wbo now Ands it hard enough to support his family, the church and pay taxes. 8uppose such a man who now pays 810 taxes under license, next year, by scrimping and saving he has 820, out of which he intends to pay SIO for taxes, 85.00 for church dues, SI BO for Standard subscription and 83.50 for shoes for his children; but lie is informed bis taxes will consume the whole 820. Do you think to such a man the pecuniary phase of the license question is of second consideration, when he never spent a cent in the saloons, but now cannot pay for the church, the newspaper, his children to go barefooted, or else have his1 home sold for taxes? Such man will remember the false prophets who raised his taxes by voting license another year.    One: For Many. In answer to the above the corres-r6fe,r"d to tile commot I J f, the ,niiyor a,ld council of Rake Mills, published in this issue of the standard, It may be added that if the abolition of the drink evil, with ail its attendant enormous expenses its crimes and human miseries is desirable and a benefit to the community, it cannot otherwise than he a blessing both pecuniarily and otherwise to every individual and to everv family that is a member of it.
