Among other Important city improvements Is the prospective graveling- of the streets to the Milwaukee and Northwestern depots. Alex. White, as city committee, has been notified that the railway companies will contribute 100 cars of gravel each and John G. Smith, chairman of the county board, thinks there will be no objection to using the one-mill county road tax, levied in Algona, for distributing the same. This tax in Algona amounts to nearly $400, and this will do a lot of important work. ELECTRIC LIGHT DETAILS. THE UPPER DES MOINES was slightly inaccurate last week in giving the details of the electric light contracts. The building contract is lot to P. A. Gross for $2,489, and the plant contract is let to M. I. Bigelow for $11,760 making the total cost $14,249. The boilers will be first put in, and are expected in about a month. They will be^set and then the building will be built and the rest of the plant put in. MOVING THE CITY HALL. Work began Monday on the removal of the city hall building to the east side of the city lot. The brick electric light building will be on the west side, beginning from the alley and running south. Being 85 feet long it will come well up to the street front. CITY COUNCIL'S GOOD WORK. If all signs do not fail the city is going to have one of the best and cheapest light plants ever put in. The city fathers have spent months in investigating and Mr. Poster, who has shown himself fully posted, will supervise th-e construction for the city. Every piece of machinery is the best made and no scrimping has been done as to size or quality. The electric light coin mi Wee, Messrs. Sayers, Vesper, and Whlte,.are entitled to special credit and also Mayor Chrischilles for the wise beginning. If the plant does not prove all that everybody expects it will, it will not be for want of attention on the part of the city officials. SEWEKS BEING LAID. Nothing further has been done about a general south side sewer. Several extensions, however, have been made from the north side sewer to the south. One has gone in to M. Starr's new home. One is now being laid to the new Methodist church. All of the southeastern part of Algona drains naturally to the north. ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS.
