The democrats celebrate tonight, and the town will be properly acquainted with the fact that Gov. Boles was elected. Music by four bands, and a general jollification constitute the pro- gramme.

SUED FOB The AlRonn Republican tin* n ?!(>,- OOO Libel Salt-l>r. Hnthftwny of §ion* City Will Have ft Word Abont " Illegal Advertising." Readers of THE UPPER DES MOINES will remember a personal note about a month ago to the effect that a young Sioux City lawyer named Argd had been in town on business. The purpose of his visit was made known last Friday by the filing of a petition in the clerk's office asking $10,000 damages against the Algona Republican for libel. The plaintiff Is Dr. J. N. Hathaway, a Sioux City specialist, whose advertisement has been published by THE UPPER DES MOINES, and which the Republican has declared to be " illegal, " ^'Immoral," etc. The petition is not lengthy, but sets forth in full the article in the Republican of Oct. 7, in which "quack doctor. "" immoral, indecent, and obscene," and other like characterizations occur in a column denunciation of the doctor. The petition sots up that these statements are false and malicious, that the doctor is a regular physician, and that this article is a damage to him in his business, besides being a personal attack upon his character us a citizen. The suit is brought by the law firm of Argo, McDufflo & Argo of Sioux City, the head of the firm Doing the noted criminal lawyer Of northwestetn Iowa, who was engaged In the Haddock trial. Now that the suit has been brought and the whole matter will be settled in court, comment would be unfair. All will watch the proceedings with Interest, and the settlement of the law governing the publication of medical advertisements will be valuable to newspaper men. AS SEEN AT SIOUX CITY. The Sioux City Daily Tribune says concerning this suit: Dr. Hathaway of this city through his attorneys, Argo, McDuffle & Argo, has instituted libel can bo found,'and lure a few fish from the lakes and shoot a few deer in the pineries. Col Spencer enjoyed a visit over Sunday from his brother, who holds R posi- in the senate at Washington. He came from northern Wisconsin, where he has been for a few weeks, and returns to Washington from here. Ben. Smith was down from Ramsay last week to hear the returns and with him was a nephew from Chicago, who is out on a visit. The pleasure of seeing his relative balanced up the feel ings produced by the returns, and looked reasonably happy, AMANA yarns at Taylor's.

In the petition the doctor charges the Republican with a malicious and slanderous publication. In a fight between the Republican and UPPER DBS MOINES of Algona, the Republican censured the other prper for publishing Dr. Hathaway's advertisement, characterizing such advertisements as the efforts of quacks to impose upon the public. As the doctor is a regular graduate of a medical college, naturally he took offense at the attack and instituted proceedings to protect himself. Dr. Hathaway recently won a suit in Missouri. The board of health refused to grant him a certificate beca use he advertised. The doctor instituted mandamus proceedings and the supreme court has just rendered a decision in his favor. \ It is thought that the chicken contracted a severe cold on the way.

The clerk's office was crowded Friday with the witnesses in the Neff tree claim contest, which has been reported before. They were giving additional testimony to satisfy the requirements Chas. Stewart, whose arrest for bootlegging was made last week Wednesday, is out under $300 bail to await the grand jury next month. His place was raided and a 10 gallon keg of whiskey was found nearly empty, which probably accounted for some hilarity on election day. 'Squire Taylor conducted the examination and bound Stewart over. If convicted this will be his second offense and the penalty will be heavy, as it should he. Let the law be enforced With vigor. The Courier, in commenting on the arrest of Chas. Stewart some months ago for selling liquor, says: " We do not remember just how the action terminated, but it was certainly a great deal of a farce." Stewart was brought back and paid a fine of $50 and all the costs, as the Courier knows or ought to know. This may be a farce or not as a person happens to look at it. The. fine is the same that was assessed against all liquor offenders who did not go into court.

Carter's store last week in two days was about as lively a transaction as Algona has lately seen. They went as fast as people could see them, and were as fine fruit as was ever brought west. Another car will come this week, and all who want the best will do well to be on hand and buy early. The eastern apples are far superior in quality, and but few can be had to come so far west; but while they last everyone can be served at Carter's stole, where they will be unloaded.

The following dispatch' from Cham* berlain, S, D., in the Minneapolis Journal points to a fast Milwaukee train to Chicago to match the Northwestern: "Railroad men bring the news of rumors along the line of the Milwaukee road that a change will shortly be made in the time table, and that a fast train will be put on the road between here and Milwaukee to compete with the fast Northwestern train that runs east from Huron. Railroad men say the Milwaukee company is compelled to do this in order to hold their passenger traffic between here and eastern points, as the fast train over the Northwestern road is drawing many passengers from Milwaukee territory. It. is expected that the new fast train will leave here early each morning, and the fast train from the east wfil arrive about noon of each day." STARLIGHT yarns at Taylor's.
