Cleveland has 001 votes in the convention according to conservative estimate, and he will doubtless be nominated sometime today on the first ballot. Gray gets second place in consideration Konublican Club. Algona is to have a llepublican Club. A paper lias been circulated for the signatures of those who would be willing to join such an organization and a large and enthusiastic llepub- lican club is assured. A meeting will be held next Monday evening at Quar ton's ollice for the election of officers and the completion of the organization. Every Republican in town is invited to come out and join. If you have not been asked to sign the paper it is be cause the committee who have beei circulating it around town have missoi seeing you. Republicans from the country' are also invited to come in and join the Algona club. Anybody and everybody in sympathy with the "Tvaitorious Delegates.'' Under the above heading the Courier of last week quoted the following'item rora the Humboldt Blade which is as jadlyoff in the matter of truth, as 'traitorious'' is in the matter of orthog- ll "When Congressman Dolliver was | lives at Des Moines, making a Blaine speech at Minne-!...,.,.. apolis last week and took occasion to Lessing's, is putting in a hall way to his ice cream parlors, for the accomo- dation of his lady patrons and others.

Boies still seems to have the delegation from Iowa solid for him, and they say his name will be placed in nomination under any circumstances. Hill still holdsoutagainst Cleveland, but has given up all hope for himself. The convention will probably adjourn today. The republican ratfication meeting last Wednesday was not a howling success. By some miscue the hall was not lighted until about half past eight and by that time the crowd on the streets republican party will be welcome. It is intended to have some rousing times during the campaign. Quartan's law- office next Monday evening at eight o'clock sharp.

Having a very enjoyable time." from their posts pi: duty, some one ask cd him what business he had to be talking that way when he v,-as, lumselt absent from duty for a similar purpose. He replied instantly that Ins tenure of ollice did not depend upon the president. He might further have added that the power which sent him to con- iri-ess. the republican party o the 1 en.h District, could suggest no better employment for Mr. Dolliver s ^"^ timents 1 which, unfortunately, their delegate did not do." Now the truth is, that Congressman Dolliver never made any Blaine speech at Minneapolis. The incident which is charged to him by the Blade and Courier, was furnished by Senator Wolcott and Chauncev M. Depew. It would be interesting to know by what strange manipulation the circumstance was switched from Senator Wolcott and credited to Mr. Dolliver. Tree Claim Contest Decided. The Brougher-Nei'E tree claim contest was decided by the Land Officers at Des Moines last week in favor of NefT. He entered this tree claim ovei- eight years ago and has a very creditable grove thereon.

A full and correct new text of the Australian ballot law is published in Mr. Joseph Pearce, Mrs. James AVaner, Mr. FredKuhl, Mr. Charles George, Oscar Anderson. The Algona Band has been secured to give music to the Bancroft people on the Fourth of July. Our band will prove a drawing card to the Bancroft celebration. Let them be well advertised. Mr. and Mrs. P. S. Corkins returned from Minnesota last Saturday afternoon. Mr. Corkins has been looking after Singer Sewing Machine interests in Minnesota and Mrs. Corkins kas been visiting relatives. Mrs. J. II. Leonard and baby, of not be any meeting. The cannon was the only thing that did any ratifying. Ben Winkle was around with a paper last week and succeeded in securing enough names to warrant him in running his street sprinkler. Several of the business men on State street have held out in refusing to pay anything for the benefits of the sprinkler and Winkie retaliates by shutting off the water when passing their places of business. If we can get out our cannon and Parties living eight and ten miles north of town report that they distinctly heard the report of the cannon last Wednesday evening. Insinuations about a "pop gun" were made around town. The cannon was taken down on the Blackford hill to be tired, and the intervening hill, trees and buildings probably explain why the report appeared rather feeble as heard up town. We understand that the great Wallace circus, that visited Algona last summer, and which was the means of Tom. Bennett, the popular Thorington street meat market man. has removed from Ins quarters on Thor ington street and is now to be found at the Red Front , on State street, Mr. Bacon's old stand. John Goeders advertises a special sale, lasting for fifteen days, on ribbons, embroideries, dress goods and clothing. Anyone buying a suit cost ing $10 or more receives a campaign hat as a present. Campaign hats are now "the thing" and everybody should have one. Mr. Goeders shows he is up to the times in this as in other things. Minneapolis, are visiting with the family of J. R. Jones. Mr. Leonard is telegraphic editor of the Minneapolis Tribune. Mrs. Leonard will probably spend the summer in Algona. G. B. Whitney and family were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Fuller Friday night, and took the east bound train Saturday morning for their old home at Waucoma, Iowa. Mr. Whitney recently sold his hardware business at Butt and we presume has returned home for good. Jas. Taylor, Ben Haggard, Sheriff Graham, Editor Hinchon and several others took the train for Chicago and the democratic convention last Satur- have a salute at sunrise that will be celebration enough for Algona. The other towns that havn't got a brass cannon like ours will have to celebrate in a tamer kind of a way. The thing furnished a whole republican ratification meeting the other evening, speeches and all thrown in. We notice flattering mentions of the Algona Normal school in outside papers. The mentions are well deserved. The school is becoming prominent among the successful educational institutions of the State. It is now in Mr. J. B. Ayle, who lives on the Perry Buiiingarne place southeast of town, brought in a bunch of oats yesterday that measures aoi inches in length. This oats was planted the 8th of May, during the wet weather. He- also has some oats that was planted ten days later, after the wet spell. Mr. Ayle says his oats will be headed out inside of two weeks. He says corn and all crops in his neighborhood are looking line and growing unusually fast. The city council met in special session last Wednesday night to discuss* the matter of laying the new water mains. A petition was read from the- residents on Thorington street asking for a water main. Councilman Cleary was appointed a committee to canvass this issue. It makes this paper worth preserving. Geo. E. Clarke, Frank and Joe Nicoulin an Joe Wadsworth went up to Spirit Lake Monday evening to enjoy the fishing. Bancroft is going to celebrate the Fourth of July, Whittemore is going to celebrate, so is Lu Verne, and so is Wesley we believe. We are informed that there are still two vacancies in the matrimonial club. Anyone wishing to join should put in an application immediately. The mails on the Milwaukee road were greatly delayed last week on account of washouts occasioned by the storm of Wednesday evening. Mr. Horace Schenck, one of the pio- day night. Mr. Taylor and Mr. Gra ham were accompanied by their wives. Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Campbell, of Bancroft were also in the party. Mr. Peterson the new photographer makes an offer to the babies of Algona and vicinity that should be taken advantage of.

It is said that they are doing business in the same old way. Surely they won't miss Algona, it's too good a town. The marriage of Mr. Charles Shanor and Miss Rose Paine occurs this evening at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. II. Paine, southeast of Burt. The contracting parties are well known to many of our readers, and are favorites among the young people of their neighborhood. The bride is not unknown in Algona, having been attendant of the Normal School in Kossuth laud the other day in the vicinity of Armstrong Grove. They fell onto a great bargain county "Vicinity VJ.L J.A.J.AJ.*KI».-—o purchased 280 acres of good land lying near the survey for the new road at a very low price.

Mrs Fill has been an invalid for several years, and it is quite a trip for a lady of her age and health. "Ladendorf now stands between us and the undertaker. "-Algona Courier.
