DI1B MOtNlH: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23, 1898. ALL OVER BIG KOSSUTH, A DISCUSSION OP THE RAHM OASE. A Jurol- Snye It Wftft Decided Alone on Lftw and Kvldeiice-Oen- crttl County U. S. Clarke, editor of the Ledyard Leader, was a juror in the Rahm case. He discusses the outcome at length, and tells how the jury viewed the evidence: It is hardly necessary to say that there has been some fault found with the decision of the jury, for in and around Algona there is a strong sentiment against Rahtn which thinks the jury ought to have found him guilty of assault with the intent to commit murder, which would moan ten years In the penitentiary. It was an impartial jury and none of them were acquainted with Rahm and certainly would have found him guilty of the last named charge had they considered there had been sufficient evidence produced to justify it. The jury were not allowed to take into consideration the reputation or character of Mr. Rahm prior to the Prairie township fracas, and the court would not allow it introduced as evidence in the case. The instructions were to return a verdict accord ing to the evidence produced at the trial, and to have returned any other verdict than was returned, a groat deal of supposing and presuming would necessarily have had to have been done, besides the law says the defendant must be given the benefit of all doubts. The case was ably handled hy County Attorney Raymond and son for the state, and Mr. Curtissof Algona and Mr. Dyer of Nevada for de- fondant. To those who are inclined to censure the jury we will say there is a wide difference between convicting a man on general principles and on facts in a case as brought out by a court, and you are compelled by law to render your verdict according to the latter. is now in charge of E. B. Higley's Emmetsburg branch house. Will is a first class fellow, and can make business win wherever he is. Rev. Tierney left Monday evening for Colfax Springs, Iowa, to take baths. He will be absent two weeks. During absence all sick calls will be attended by Father Nichols. At 8:30 next Sunday services will be held at the Catholic church by Father Nichols. DOGS MUST HAVE COLLARS Ltl VERNE OASE IS THUS DECIDED Ijoclyard Lender. C. C. Chubb is up from Algona looking after his extensive real estate interests in this part of the county. Work commenced Monday morning on Dr. Lowder's new house. Last Monday Cliff Trimble and Geo. Wolf shouldered (.fre'ir guns and started out in pursuifc'of wild game. After being out abr/tit two hours they corralled a flock/'of brant and with two shots brought down five of them. Swea City Herald. Dun'n & Kruse have bought the Barber elevator at Swea City. They closed a deal last week for the west elevator at a good price. B. M. Richmond started for Hot Springs, Ark., yesterday, where he expects to spend a couple of months for the benefit of his health. He, took his cousin, Virginia, and her mother along as far as their route lies with his own on their return to Jeffersonville, Ind., their former home. The marriage of Nils Anderson and Miss Olive Oofford occurred on Thursday evening, March 10, at Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Erickson's home in Swea township. A, D. Clarke was behind the counters of the bank a few hours Thursday last. A prairie Dre got started last Monday from a flax stack fired the day before and made things lively up around section 16 in Grant township. Mr. Godden lost nearly all his hay and other parties lost good stacks of feed. Tom Storm happened to be up at August Trouth's and they went over and assisted Mrs. and Miss Godden in saving their buildings. Tumble weeds assisted the fire across fire breaks and the whole neighborhood was out fighting fire most of the afternoon. It was .a terrible day for a fire and it is a wonder that more damage was not done. A New Bank at LuVcrhe. Britt Tribune: Rodney Hill and Ira Peck will start a bank in LuVerne, which will bo managed by Ernest Peck. Ernest is a bright young business man and ia certain to make a success of the business. The banking firm is a strong one and Lu Verne will be greatly bene- fitted by the acquisition of a second bank. Ited Hot at \VIilttemore. A caucus was held to name a city ticket at Whittemore and N. L. Cotton was named for mayor, John F. Schaible and E. A. Weisbeck for councilmen. After the caucus was over Mayor Boyle got up and announced that another caucus would be held. This named Geo. E. Boyle for mayor, J. M. Parley and M. P. McDowell for councilmon. The election will be on the warm order. LuVerne News. At the school election Monday E. P. Quick was elected director and G. W. Hanna treasurer. At the people's independent caucus Saturday night the following ticket was placed in the field: Mayor, Chas. Konarskii; councilmen, Wm. ' Hof and Geo. Lacy; clerk, H. L.

Ho enjoyed a Sunday visit with friends hero and on Monday returned homo. Mr. Friis will bo remembered us the efficient and faithful clerk in the long ago Calkins store. At present ho is clerk in County Auditor Calkin's oITice at Algona. A. J. Lilly, the library man, was in •Buffalo Center last Saturday investigating the water works sentiment and public library, the last named public factor he learned had many defects and was not giving satisfactory service. It was not so. Mr. Lilly lias a clear intelligence of civil engineering and should the people of Buffalo Center see fit to employ him they will secure an able man. Mr. Lilly comes from Algona, was formerly president of the normal school in that city. This school would exist today if the people of the county seat had supported it the way they ought. It is absurd for those guns down there to talk of having a school providing they support it as they did when Mr. Lilly superintended it. He will return to Algona as soon as he establishes a library here and at Swea City. Flro In Lotts Crock. Emmetsburg Reporter: Some of the people east of Cylinder, near the Kossuth county line, were badly scared on Monday last. Fire got out in some manner and as the wind was blowing at a terrific rate it swept up theslough almost as fast as a railroad train. When near J. P. Walker's place it leaped over a considerable distance of ploughed ground and set fire to a straw stack in his barn yard. Fortunately the wind was blowing away from buildings and no further damage was done. The Lu Verne dog case is settled, and Judge Quarlon sustains the Lu Verne ordinance, which authorizes anybody to kill any dog on the townsite without a collar and tag. R. S. Darr's good bird dog went to Lu Verne on a visit, and a dog somewhat, resembling it having bitten Wm. Eilia, Ellis shot Darr'sdog. Suit was brought before 'Squire Clarke and he held that the ordinance was illegal and gave Darr a verdict. But Judge Quarlon overrules this decision and holds that the ordinance is good. Dog owners will take warning and bo careful how they let their dogs run without a collar. PLEADS NOT GUILTY. Nick Mousel, who was brought down for selling beer at Gormania, pleaded not guilty and put up $600 bonds. Sullivan & McMahon are engaged for the defense. ANOTHER SKINNER CASE. C. II. Boals uued Louis Douge for $80 on a note given to N. J. Skinner. Doege claims the note was for $40, that Skinner raised it to $02, and that he paid Skinner. Taylor nncl Swotting were for Bouls and Bonar and Ripley for Docgo. The judgment was for the defendant. Skinner turned the note over to Boals as a good note. COURT NOTES.

Mahoney, when Mahoney had sold all his interests to other partins. Bradford of Britt represented the bank and Clarke & Cohenour the land owners. The judge held with the latter.

Bourne has a broken rib, but it was pot discovered until last week. Some little time ago he was assisting unloading some goods at the grocery and a mishap at that time is regarded as being reBponsible for the broken member. Two townships in Missouri aren't to be compared with a good quarter section farm in Kossuth county, Iowa. E. B. Eddy, who owned a good farm in Portland township, has tried it, but long ago he crept back over into Iowa to live and die in a good state. R. R. Radwuy also tried it, and there are others. They all come back. The citizens of Burt met in caucus Tuesday evening and nominated Thoa. Hanna for mayor, O. P. McDonald and J. R. Blossom for councilmen, J. B. Watkins for street commissioner, M. H. Stoddard for assessor. A recorder and treasurer should have been nominated, but was overlooked. They will probably be put on now by petition. The contest for mayor was between Thos. Hanna and Dr. W. T. Peters, the vote standing 41 to 44. WJiHtemore Champion, Mrs, Dorweiler has the distinction of being the first lady school director in WfaitSempre and perhaps in the county.

We are the originators of the above proposition in Kossuth county, and we do not raise the price so much on every ring that we can afford to give you a clock. If the price is not raised on the ring imagine what a nice, reliable clock you would set with a solid gold $2 ring!

There has been a hot time in the old town for our competitors ever since the sign of the Big Watch wont out, and the above ring advertisement only serves as proof of what we have heretofore stated, that we lead and others try to follow.
