ELECTIONS HEEE AND ELSEWHEEE Algona Favors the Library Tax and Light Franchise—Whlttemore and Wesley Contests. Algona feels better since the city lection Monday and the splendid ma- ority in favor of the library tax. Including the votes of the ladies 551 votes were cast on the question, 370 being for and 181 against, leaving the substantial majority of 189. This must be con- idered a complete victory in view of .be fact that the proposition has been twice defeated before, the first time by a large majority. It indicates a change of sentiment that is creditable to the community, and insures a fund for the ibrary which will give it sound financial backing. Contrary to expectation the proposi- ion to grant a franchise for electric "ights carried by 18 majority. It now •emains to be seen what can be done in the way of getting the city lighted on a modern plan. Following is the vote on councilmen and on the two propositions submitted: First ward— P.H. Vesper 77 For lights 44 Against lights 37 For library tax— 80 Against library tax 20 Second ward— Dr. Morse 09 For liRhts 01 Against lights 56 For library tax 113 Against library tax. 38 Third ward— P. L, Slagle 06 Walter Stebbins 72 For lights 59 Againstlights 61 For library tax 73 Against library tax , 70 Fourth ward— M. B. Chapin 85 J. F. Niooulin 57 For lights 67 Against lights 59 For library tax 104 Against library tax 47 RECAPITULATION. For lights 831 Against lights 213 Majority for lights 18 For library tax 370 Against library tax 181 Majority for tax ; 189 Mr. Vesper had no opposition in the First ward, and got 77 out of 81 votes cast. Dr. Morse had it all his own way in the Second ward, and got 99 out of the 117 votes cast. There was a lively fight in the Third, and Walter Stebbins won out with 72 votes against P. L. Slagle's 66. In the Fourth M. B. Chapin is returned with 85 votes, while J. F. Nicoulin's vote was 67, This leaves the new council the same as last year with the exception of Dr. Morse from the Second ward in place of F. W. Dingley, and Walter Stebbins from the Third in place of P. L. Slagle. The ladies turned out to vote on the library question, though only to a small extent. In the First 19 votes were oast, 16 being for and 3 against. In the Second 39 ladies voted, 36 .of these being for the tax, and 2 against, and one vote was defective and had to be thrown out. In the Third 25 ladies voted, and in the Fourth there were 24, but it is not known how they stood. It is estimated that the library tax will raise a fund of about $400 a year, which, in addition to private subsorip' tions, insures Algona a public library of which its citizens will take a just pride. It is a matter of oongratula tion that the proposition goes through with a majority so large. The cost to each individual is so slight that it wil not be felt, while the benefits to be de rived from an institution of the kinc are not to be measured in dollars and cents. Keuular Caucus Ticket WJ»9 l>y There was a hot Wpe In Wh,itte»ore it the city election Monday, according o all accounts the warmest election .ontest the town ever saw. The result a a victory for the regular caucus nom- nees by majorities ranging from 18 to 18. Following is the vote in detail: For Mayor— .L. Cotton 70 Geo. E. Boyle 01 lotton's majority 18 For Recorder— !. 0. Merrill 101 For Treasurer— 0. B. Holdredge 01 .E. Lien 48 Holdredge's majority 43 For Assessor— Q.A.Hanna 88 Yale 50 Hanna's majority 38 For Councilmen— E. A. Welsbeck 100 . M. Farley 41 . F. Shaible 83 M. P. McDonnell 57 Weisbeck's majority 59 Shaible's majority 20 AT WESLEY. WILL ORGANIZE APRIL 4. NEW COUNCIL WILL GET TOGETHER t Was Warm There, Too, With Small Majorities. The city election Monday was not without its usual amount of interest. However, there was but one candidate up for mayor, J. H. Ward, to succeed himself. The fight was on councilmen and recorder. W. P. Giddings for reorder and Z. S. Barrett and Frank Hume for councilmen composed the jeople's ticket, while J. S. Gallagher "or recorder, Nels Overbade and Chas. Brunson for councilmen, made up the union ticket. There was a full vote out. Mr. Giddings was elected by one majority oyer Gallagher for recorder, Mr. Barrett by one majority, Mr. Brunson on the union ticket by nine majori- ,y over Hume. This will leave the council stand as it has for the past two fears, three to two in favor of the union ticket. At Des Molnes. McVicar Sweeps the field in Des Moines with 1,200 majority for mayor, and the balance of the republican ticket is also elected. MoVioar'a success is a big victory for municipal ownership of water works and electric lights. At Sioux City. The democrats were victors in Sioux City, and our old-time Wesley man, J. H. Quick, is elected mayor by 1,000. The Journal prints his picture, which seem to do him justice, and shows him to look very much as he did when he was a citizen of Kossuth county. OATJGHT A HOUSE THIEF, Deputy Sheriff McDonald Gets the Mau Wanted at Uinmetsburtf. About a month ago a man going by the name of Frank O'Neill, and claiming to be from St. Louis, stole a team of horses at Emmetsburg, He was caught in Minnesota and subsequently pleaded guilty to the charge, Saturday the sheriff took him out to get a pail of water, when he threw the watei in the sheriff's face and ran, Two or three shots were fired at him, but without effect, and he escaped. He went north from Emmetsburg, and according to his own story he never let up until he had covered 14 miles. Parties searched fpr him all day Sunday, but it remained for Deputy Sheriff W. E McDonald of this county to capture him, which he did on Monday at Burt The prisoner was brought here, and a message brought Sheriff Pavidjjon o Emmetsburg, who took him baoB yes terday mornjpg.

Minor Officials to Be Selected at a Later Date—Proceedings of the Last Meeting. 4 The new city council will meet next Monday, April 4, and organize in three capacities.

This is the new law. The selection of minor city officials comes at the regular April meeting. Successors are to be chosen to Clerk Donahoo, Marshal Horan, Superintend- nt of Water Works Horan, and Street Commissioner Carlon.
