The county seat war in Hancock county progresses. It will culminate in a pitched battle at the June meeting of the board of supervisors. At that time the names on the petition and remonstrance will be counted. Brltt has the petition. This asks that the supervisors submit the relocation of the county seat to vote. Garner has the remonstrance. This asks that the question be not submitted to vote. Britt has the heavy end of the fight, because the law provides that a man who signs both the petition 'and remonstrance shall bo counted only on the remonstrance. Brltt has several hundred more names than enough, but how many of them Garner can got on the remonstrance Is to bo found out. Britt proposes, if tho question Is submitted to vote, to give $25,000 and a $5,000 silo for a new court house, and to ask the people to locate at Britt. Brltt Is In tho center of the county. Garner proposes, If the question is not submitted to vote, and tho county seat is left where it is, to annex Concord, the county seat town a mile and a half out, relocate the court house up town, and build a $25,000 building on a £5,000 site.. Garner is on tho enst side of tho county. Brltt says Garner cannot legally annex Concord and relocate the court house without a vote of the people. Garner says Brltt's bond to glvo $25,000 is worthless, and Britt says Garner borrowed its $30,000 from Mason City for ten days to make a bluff with. Garner snys Britt is a mud hole. Britt says Garner would beone-ifit had any learns on its streets. In tho midst of this internecine strife Bailey shines like a light house in a fog. He contributes from one to five columns a week. The following is a fair sample of his references to Garner: Poor, poor Garnerl What a pity to awaken her from theletharglc sleep of the last decadel Return to thy slumbers, oh sons of silence! Fold thy robes about thy shrinking reclining form, oh sable sons of rest! Rest weary pilgrims from thy diligent, unrequited days of toil, and vain delusive circumambula- tion to and fro. Down to thy weary couch, like tho poor spanked child, penitent, yet emitting involuntary sighs of grief ns smartest now thy troubled slumbers, thy tender tingling flesh. Yes, lay down you gpl darned pig-headed sons of belial, the stuffing was knocked out of you before you started. Dead men have no right to kick. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS.

When John Peterson, late livery man, went with Company F he owed the Thorington a $00 board bill, and settled it by getting his father, P. O. Peterson, to sign a note with him. After he had gone Landlord McMurray approached Mr. Peterson, senior, and he promptly denied the signature. Mr. MoMurray had F. M. Taylor go to him and he also to him denied having signed the note. The only thing left was to send for the boy, and Sheriff Christensen went to Des Moines Wednesday and arrested him, charged with forgery. He was no sooner brought back than the old gentleman recalled that he had signed the note, and that it was all right. John has always been well regarded in Algoiia, and it seems inexcusable that the old gentleman should have allowed his arrest. The general impression is that the old man thought the boy was gone, and that he could just as well evade the debt as not. John went to Des Moinos at once on his release and is again doing good military duty. Harry Lantry is up from Lincoln, Neb., for two weeks.
