The past week has'been one of business changes all around. The most recent one announced is that of the sale by J. H. Queal & Co. of their lumber yard to S. J. O'Neill of this place. Pos. session has already been given, and Mr. O'Neill is in charge of a business well established and in prosperous shape. He was formerly in the lumber business at Burt, but he sold out there some weeks ago and removed to this place. He is thoroughly familiar with the business, and there is every reason to believe that he has made a good investment. Mr. Queal's a rent gives as a reason for selling that their Algona yard was a little out of the way with reference to their numerous others, and a sale was therefore desirable. We could never understand just why it was necessary for a person who had secured a favorable verdict at the hands of a jury to rush up and practically embrace the members of that jury for doing their duty. We see it often done, and while there is nothing in it that can be construed as absolutely wrong, yet many will insist that it is in bad form. It should be relegated in company with the pernicious "card of thanks," which, happily, is becoming to be considered as a sort of gratiutous offering for which there is no warrant in custom or common sense. Carried to a logical conclusion the jury should be banqueted, and we have all heard how a man in this state came out who adopted this method of exhibiting his gratitude. Those of the military boys who go to Dubuque got away either Sunday night or Monday. The list includes Thos. P. Cooke, Mike Walsh, H. J. Edens, Walter Ward, Dr. Morse, and Harvey Ingham. The target shooting at Dubuque continues during this week, after which the team will be organized to attend the world's fair exercises and shoot at Ft. Sheridan. Harvey Ingham goes as official reporter, having been appointed by Adjt.-Gen. Greene to that position. Chas. Cohenour has been selected as an honorary member of Gov. Boies' staff. He reports at Fort Dodge next Monday, and goes from there with the other officers to Chicago. Verily Algona in on top in the world's fair exercises, as she has been in many other enterprises this year. If the ruling of Judge Thomas in the libel case stands, it is safe to say that two-thirds of the newspapers in Iowa are liable to prosecution for publishing the advertisements of specialist doctors. Not a city in Iowa but what has located within its sacred precincts from one to half a dozen -physicians who advertise as specialists, and the newspapers of those places are filled with advertisements of like character with that of Dr. Hathaway. It is not likely that any one of the publishers ever take account of what the advertisement contains, nor are they aware of the provisions of the statute on that subject. Jud Thomas said, in a private talk, that did not suppose one of them ever saw the section referred to or knew of its existence. Of course this fact would be no excuse for its violation yet it will prove a matter of general interest to all Iowa publishers to know just what the supreme court will hold with reference to this point. Dr Sheetz doubtless gets as much amusement out of life as the ordinary saft.

What Alffon wants, when she gets a plant at all, i the best that can be had for the money paper believes th'at, general! speaking, all interests are best sub served by the city owning the plant especially as against giving a franchis for a term of years to an outside corpo ration. However, it might not be r oad plan to form n home company composed wholly or chiefly of horn capital. There are less objections tc this plan than to letting outsiders hav( complete control, and yet this is no wholly free from criticism. A stran ger was here not long ago who wanted to put in a plant for us, but some '"side history concerning his methods is suffl ciently convincing to show that w have no use for him. The schem which he proposed to at least one o our prominent men was a fraud. THE UPPER DBS MOINES feels Hl« congratulating its neighbor, the Re publican, on its successful outcome in the suit against it for alleged libel. In a sense it is a vindication of the press and of the right of free speech which is popularly supposed to be guaranteed under our form of government. Years ago THE UPPER DES MOINES went through a similar ordenl—was sued foi libel for publishing what it belived to be true. The paper was harassed bu' not embarrassed, and experienced the delight of at least a temporary boom in consequence. Later the Republican was placed on the gridiron, but wheth- r or not with similar results wo never cnew. Perhaps the difference lay in she fact that Mr. Starr was defeated while this paper was not. Now our neighbor comes in for a second installment, this time, temporarily, at least, with better success. As a matter oi 'act we think the Courier should have jeen the victim this time, in order thai the honors, may be passed around and a proper division of the spoils made. Thus far Bro. Hinchon has been permitted to say what he pleased and has rone scot free, but all will agree that it s his turn next. It may be said that ihese things come high but we must nivethem. Sold Out.

A Verdict of Not Guilty irt the Kidd Cas for Alleged Bribery—Other Court Notes. The case of chief interest in the dis trict court last week was that of Dr Hathaway of Sioux City against th Republican for alleged libel, and in which the paper scored a victory. The case was called on Thursday, H jury ee cured, and the trial begun. A motion to dismiss us against Mr. Starr, for th reason that ho is not connected will the paper, and hence not responsible for its utterances, was sustained by the court. The prosecution then intro duced its evidence, which consisted o; the alleged libelous article published in the Republican, with which the pub lie generally is familiar, and the test!' mony of Dr. Hathaway and another Sioux City physician, also that of 'Gar. Bolster of this county, who said thai he had been deterred from employing Dr. Hathaway by reason of the publication. Matters then tooka sudden turn when Judge Cook for the defense moved the sourt to take the case from the jury and instruct a verdict for the defendant, Tor the reason that no malice was shown, that the publication of Dr. Hatbaway's advertisement was contrary to the provisions of the statute, and for other reasons. The entire case hinged on ,his point, which was argued by counsel for both sides during the remainder of Thursday and nearly all of Friday, when Judge Thomas sustained the motion, and thus the case ended for the iresent. The court hold that the doc- .or's advertisement was contrary to the statute in that he advertised to treat lis patients with medicines; that ho also advertised to give homo treatment, >resumably by mail, and that, if his Conclusions were correct, an' advertisement of this character was in conflict vith the statute, and hence the Repub- ican's article was only a fair criticism nd not libelous. Mr. Argo, for the prosecution, had his exceptions noted ind gave notice that he would appeal 'he case to the supreme court. In con- 'ersation with Dr. Hathaway on this joint he told the reporter that he ihould certainly take the case to the upremo court for final adjustment, for f left in its present condition it would lave the tendency to prejudice him and his business before people who might otherwise become patrons. ige Thomas said that he hoped the jase would be appealed. While he >elieved his ruling was correct, yet he laid it was undoubtedly a close question, and he would like to have the ligher court pass upon it, and either establish the correctness of his view or ihow him wherein he is wrong. The court costs in this case will reach about $60. Clerk Brunson tells us that Dr. Hathaway instructed him to send a )ill of the costs, which he would pay upon presentation. Other Oases Tried. The jury in the case of The State of owa against A. E. Kidd for alleged >ribery, deliberated briefly and brought n a verdict of not guilty. This is the ase which was on trial when this iaper went to press last week, and in which Kidd was charged with having -ttempted to bribe Sheriff Madden of /'lay county to select a jury which would be favorable to his side of the ase. The defendant shook hands with .11 the jurymen, and if his facial ex- iression was an indication of his true nwardness, then he felt very thankful or being exonerated'from a charge so erious as that of bribery. The last jury case was that of Devine gainst Brass, and was a controversy ver a steer. The jury found for the ilaintiff for the value of the steer. Public School Report.
