First National Bank of Algona. .Company F In Algona has received Orders to enlist no more men except on strict physical examination. The order reads: " Hereafter all men desiring to enlist or re-enlist in the Iowa National guard will be examined by a surgeon and will not be .accepted unless they are able-bodied, free from physical defect, disease or malformation, and physically able to perform military duty." Adjt. Gen. Byers says he intends shortly to go still farther and order an examination by a surgeon of every member of the Iowa National guard, and every man who Is not able to pass the required physical examination will be discharged. He proposes to have an army of soldiers, notcripples. Heretofore no such requirement has been made, and any. sort of a man could be enlisted whether he was physically perfect or not. In fact, only four states Id the union require a physical examination for enlistment In the national guard. How The Money Will Bo liaised. The republican members of the ways and means committee of the house have completed the revenue measure to meet the expenses of war. It contemplates having the present generation bear the burden. The bill will raise $100,000,000 to $120,000,000 additional revenue per annum. A.n additional tax of $1 a barrel on beer is expected to add $30,000,000; additional 6 to 12 cents a pound on tobacco and snuff, $15,000,000;-$! a box on cigars, $5,000,000; tax on checks, drafts, mortgages, bonds, telegraph messages," express packages and patent medicines, $30,000,000. duty of 10 cents a pound on tea and 3 cents on coffee, $28,000,000. For the pressing needs of the government the secretary of the treasury is given power to issue certificates of indebtedness payable In one year at not over 3 per cent; also to borrow on the credit of the government by popular subscription $500,000,000 in low rate bonds at par to be sold through the postofflces, subtreasuries and government depositories, bearing 3 per cent, redeemable after five years at the option of the government, and be due after 20 years, principal and interest, payable in coin. Blow at National Guards. A. new military measure will be presented In congress allowing a purely volunteer army to be organized to fight Spain with, to be merged in the regular army. The news from Washington yesterday was that the national guard as such will have no part in this provisional organization. Should individ- uals'of a militia company or regiment volunteer so unanimously as to make possible the retention of the national guard organization, it will be possible to incorporate that organization into the provisional army with no great abandonment of the state identity, but there is no assurance to officers of the national guard that they will procure rank and title in the provisional army corresponding with the positions they now hold in the state troops. A Couple of War Yarns. The Ames Times says: " A Michigan man has in his possession a piece of hard tack biscuit, issued to him as a part of a ration during the late war. Though 33 years old, the biscuit is in an excellent state of preservation," Then the Times tells its story: The female part of the Times household has a relic of the late war in the shape of an army biscuit sent home by her father during the rebellion, bearing the date Sept, 30,1861, Benton Barracks, St. Louis, Mo, Though honey combed by worms and cracked in places, It still retains it original shape and has fairly withstood the tooth of time, and is in good condition, notwithstanding it is 37 years old, but we wouldn't exactly want to eat it, ' No Ca|l For the Militia Yet. Secretary Alger in reply to a specific inquiry on the subject said that no call on the militia of the several states would be made by the president until congress passes a resolution of intervention. This authoritative statement disposes of the rumors that have been circulated during the past few days that a call of this kind will be made within a certain specified time. The action thus far taken by the government in the matter of troops has been confined entirely to the issue of orders for the concentration of the regular army in the states. Four or five days will elapse before Gen. Miles will start south to take active command of the army in the field. Get the News. The telegraph companies have notified, Adjt* Gen, Byers that in the eveat of war they will give him a private wire and a first-class operator in charge. The telephone company is placing an instrument in his residence, so he will be equipped for quick com- 1 municatlon. _ , How lown Troops Will Go. If Iowa is called upon for troops, the national guard will probably be mobilized in Des Moines and made ready for transportation to the front. Wnr Notes. The Tama Indians have offered to form two companies for the war. The United States troops which will Invade Cuba, in case of war, will wear canvas suits of brown. The uniform is something new and Is said to be desirable. : , Postmaster General Gary has issued a circular to the postoffloo employes to the effect that such of them as wish may volunteer, should the president cull for their services, assuring them that they may return to their positions at the end of their military service. SPAIN HAS TILL SATURDAY President McKinley Issues the Ultimatum and Gives Spain That Long in Which to Decide. Miss Lantry got the following telegram this morning: WASHINGTON, April 20.—President will sign resolution and ultimatum at 10 o'clock this morning. Ultimatum will give Spain until 6 o'clock Saturday morning to evacuate Cuba. If she does not comply army and navy will be ordered to move on Cuba Immediately.

I. Long of the Manson Journal, Frank T, Piper of theSheJdon Mail, and Geo. T. Williams of the Ida Grove Pioneer, were each elected mayor of their respective towns last week. According to Republikaneren there are 58,593 Scandinavian votes in Iowa based on a population of 392,965 of Scandinavians and assuming that every fifth one is a voter. Every tenth vote in the state is hence of Norse extraot- tion. , The Milwaukee company are making very extensive improvements at their stock yards in Mason City. New yards are being added, old ones remodeled and a large new scales put in with capacity to weigh a carload of stock at a time. The stock business has increased very largely of late and the yards were found to be inadequate to accommodate the business. The State Bankers' association will hold its annual meeting at Mason City on May 25 and 26. Already the local bankers are making plans for the occasion, which will give the visitors a meeting second to none in the history of the organization. The sessions will be held in the opera bouse, and a ban- uet in the armory. Trips to Clear jake and a sail on the lake come in as a matter of course. , . . CASE, Parties Who Signed a Bond (J, L, Lund May Lose #1,000. Ex-Mayor Vollmer of Davenport, well known over the state for some of his convention speeches, was in Algona Frldfty arranging with Clarke & Cohen* pur to bring suit against H. Hoxie, AA. Brunson and J,. J. Ryan for $1,600 and Interest, in all about $11,650. Lund handled money for the Davenport firm of Smith & Vollmer and put up a $20,000 bond to secure them. The defendants in this case signed his bond. Al* though Lund beat the firm out of nearly $10,000 there is but the one claim* that is covered by this bond and on this they bring suit. THE UPPER PJRS Mows is not informed as, to what defense will be made, If our citizens are compelled to pay it will be an added burden ta the already sufficient Lund losses. Tas. .
