Algeria is to vote at last on the much talked-of and long-delayed Bolmond ex tension, and before Sept. 1, 1899, th engines will whistle on our third rail way. Col. Martin, the manager of the Iowa Central, was up yesterday. Hebrough with him C. C. Hill, the civil engineer of the company, and L. S. Stead man right-of-way mun and general supervis or. They all appeared before the pub lie meeting held at the court house al 10 o'clock, and then and there agreed to have their road in full operation next summer if the five per cent, tax is voted along the line, and a right-of-way !ind depot grounds given in Al#ona. There was but one expression In the meeting, which was composed of Algona's representative business men. It was to lot no grass grow under our feet "n accepting the proposition, Col. Martin drove about the town, expressing great pleasure at the evidences of thrift, and left on the 12:10 o'clock Northwestern train, but Messrs. 1111 and Stodman remained to make some preliminary observations as to he lay of the land the road will run over. THE PUBLIC MEETING. Goo. C. Call was instrumental in oall- g the people together to meet Mr. ilartin. A week ago ho was called to Marshalltown by a telegram to talk ivor the advantages of the lino with ho president and directors of tho road vho wore in tho west. They then au- horized Mr. Martin to make a propo- Itlon. As soon as it was known when 10 would be in Algona tho general pubic was notified. Mayor Chrisohlllos vas called to the chair, Cheover Hudon, secretary, and Mr. Martin told the >eople exactly what ho could promise, le Indulged in no circumlocution, but latly agreed to have tho cars' running n Algona by Sept. 1 of next year if the >eople along the right-of-way favor a ax, and if five blocks east of "thefound- y or their equivalent be given by Algona as a depot site and right-of-way. A vote was taken accepting his pro- josal and was unanimous. Thenacom- nittee was named to report four committees to solicit signatures to the po- ition to have the city council order an lectlon. These committees are as folows: First ward: Gardner Cowles, John G. Smith, Alex. White. Second ward: J. W. Htnchon, Jas. Patterson, W. P. Jones. Third ward: E. J. Mur- aph, H. A. Paine, H. O. Buell. 'ourth ward: A. L. Rlst, 0. C. Samon, D. A. Haggard. Col. Martin will >repare the blank petitions and have hem In Algona in a few days. WILL VOTE SOON, It is expected to have the petitions igned and before the city council in a ew days. The council will then set a ate for the vote. It has been talked hat the vote be taken on tho day of general election, Nov. 8. This will robably be done, If no good reason Is ound for choosing some other day. In ny event tho election will be called arly in November. A LITTLE HISTORY. The Belmond extension has been a hing of long standing. Many years go Fred. Hawks raised some money y subscription and had a sort of pro- .minary survey run. Nothinng came f it. Later a number of citizens com- Ined and got a civil engineer to make careful survey at a cost of some bund- ed dollars. It is this survey that the ompany is basing its estimates on now, nd that it may follow into Algona. THE DEPOT SITE, Col. Martin would like to depot with be Northwestern for a passeeger sta- ion, if that should be acceptable.to the ther road. The Algona survey would ut the new railway afew blocks north, 'he Algona survey starts in on the iagonal street east and south of P. L. lagle's and runs due east until the reek at the Lund farm is passed and ben turns southeast. That would ring the new depot north of the found- But there Is no assurance that Mr. Hill will follow this line. He will ome into Algona on the best line to et out to the northwest, and depot ac- ordingly. So far as the people are oncerned they all say it makes no dif- erence where the depot is so it is in Ugona. TO GO FURTHER NORTHWEST. While Col. Martin does not talk any- ling beyond Algona there is no doubt hat the company is looking beyond, ven to a point in Minnesota beyond Minneapolis. The road will not stop ere long if times keep good. A REVIVED RAILWAY COMPANY. The Iowa Central is the youngest old ompany in the west. During the past ear it has bought 750 cars, 14 engines, uilt some fine brick depots, It is now rranglng to build into Des Moines. It onnects with and owns the best coal eds in Illinois and Iowa, is the direct oute to Peoria, one of the big corn and attle markets of the west. In Algona will build a brick depot if it does not oin the Northwestern in a union do- ot. This boom is due to new blood in ie management, and chiefly to Col. ilartin's splendid management. WHAT THE TAX WILL BE, A five per cent, tax in Algona will ring about $20,000. The town is build' Og a $26,000 church, $17,000 school ouse, and $14,000 light plant. It would e a funny town that would do that and len stop at $20,000 for a third railway. 'he depot site and right-of-way, which will be raised by private subscription, vill cost from $1,500 to $8,500. Jt bould be remembered that the tax payers get stock in the ro«4 for ifo under the Iowa law, and while that does not mean much at present, it is not impossible that it will pay dollar for dollar. _.,„.. O'OONHELL MEETING POSTPONED. REVERSALS ARE BUT FEW, EEOORD IN THE SUPREME OOtftTV M, D. O'Connell of fort Dodge Come to AIKOHK Latef-^At Ledyafd Tomorrow Night. M, D. O'Connell was billed to speak in Algona tonight, but owing to the inclement weather and bad roads it has been deemed best to postpone the meeting. Mr. O'Connellis billed for Ledyard tomorrow evening, and will be given a big reception. He is a well known speaker, and all Algoniaus will hope to hear from him later in the campaign. FOLITIOAL NOTES. M. F. Healoy was billed to speak at Webster City for the democrats, but refused to attend the meeting. Ho will not assist the democrats. J. B. Romans takes M. F. Healey's place on the democratic state central committee. Tho free silver republicans are all right when it comes to doing the work. Senator C. S. Hanok of Iowa City writes that he may be counted out of tho state democracy. Ho is one of the strong men of the Iowa legislature and a life long democrat. Congressman Dollivor made the best speech at Sioux City last week he has over made in tho Eleventh, the Journal says. It was a powerful presentation of the existing situation. Irving B. Rich man of Muscatine, democratic consul at St. Gall, Swltzer- and, is out in a strong letter renounc- ng tho state democracy. He says it is ihe duty of every patriotic citizen to rote for the republican congressmen. Judge Thomas is actively on tho stump and the wear and tear of tho campaign soems to agree with him. Ho s making some very able speeches, which show that ho has had his mind on tho public issues of tho day as well is on the law. M. D. O'Connell, who was dated for Algona tonight, Isonoof the mostgenial as well as vigorous stump talkers Iowa ias. Mr. O'Connell has made it a iracttce for years to speak for the re- )ublican party every fall at his own ex- >ense, besides being a liberal campaign contributor, The big congressional fights are in lie Sixth, where Gen, Weaver is igalnst J. F. Lacey, in the Second where Judge Ney is against Jos. R, ~iano, and in the Elgth where G. L. Tinn is ngalnst W. P. Hepburn. There s a show of a fight in the Eleventh where A. S. Garretson thinks ho may bother Judge Thomas. The republi- 3ans expect to win in every district and o return a solid delegation. JAMES F. RILEY of Algona wishes to lave 12 men call and see him who are ulfering with rheumatism. He can do hem some good and guarantee what 10 says. GRIFFITH for millinery. Farm for Kent.

Willey and one brother reached Algona yesterday from the Klondike. 'he third brother, Joe, went to San Vancisco. They report as everybody oea that no new gold territory has >een struck this season. Carpenters, iowever, get $15 a day, so a man can make money if he has a trade. He can make money also if he has anything to ell. The regular rate is $1 a pound or everything down to table salt. He ays be saw nails sell at $4 a pound, nd the first watermelon brought $60. le don't encourage, tender feet to go up o get gold, however. NO SCHOOL HOUSE THIS FALL, t Is Doubtful If the Foundation for the New School Uulldluc IB Completed. Owing to a delay in getting specifl- ations from the architects the school ward has been competed to postpone he day of opening bids for the new chool house, and it is doubtful if the ontraots will be let inside of two weeks. That makes it ea late in the eaeon for building that more than the oundation will not be attempted even f that Is put in. ft is hoped, however, o get the foundation in eo as to be ready for the early spring Oases Tried by Judge Quafton That Have Been Bent Back—tfittee Statements Corrected. (» One of the standard mtsrepresenta* tionB of Judge Quarton on the bench ia that he has been reversed in Over half his decisions by the supreme court. During the past week THE UPPES DES MOINES has had this matter investigated and it finds that out of 33 oases that have been taken to the supreme court' 21 have been affirmed and 12 reversed. This is less than 40 per cent, of hie oases reversed, while tho record of the supreme court from its organization shows an average of 83 per cent, reversed. In other words Judge Quarton during his first torm has had a very, few more reversals than the state average, including all the old and expe- • rienoed judges. JudgeQuarton's record compares favorably with that of Judge Wade, Judge Birdsall, and other first torm judges who went on the bench when he did, as an examination of the record will prove. Even in this record of Judge Quarton's two reversals are in cases where the man in whose favor tho decision was given failed to make argument In' the supreme court, thus leaving the appellant a clean field. The Peterson Patriot, before a late reversal had been recorded, made the following comment on this record: In his four years of service, Judge Quarton has had only 11 cases that he has tried reversed, and ho has hardly missed a day presiding in the court room when in this district. This is as the records show it, not as the yellow journals and mud-sllngors proclaim it. They claim that one-half of his cases that have boon appealed have been reversed. Oh, such roll . Will the people believe such when the records give them the lie? Should Hosltnto About a Chancre. Spencer News: Judge Quarton is now nearing the close of his first term. Ho has presided at many terms of court in our city and is known by people in all parts of the county, who have been in his court in the capacity of jurors, witnesses, etc., and we believe that we reflect public sentiment here when we say that he has shown himself an impartial and able judge. He is a candidate for re-election, and, like all judges who have served but one term, will be the better equipped for the work of the second. Justice, self interest, public interest, all dictate that he should have another term, and voters who have received "supplements" and "extras" setting forth that a new and untried man would be to the public welfare, should hesitate before deciding to turn down a judge known to be a safe and reliable man for a stranger who is new and untried. Has Made an Excellent Record. Peterson Patriot: Don't let these unjust insinuations and foolish arguments deceive you, because we have had four years of Judge Quarton's administration in this county, and anyone, who has been present in his court can not help but testify to his fitness, ability and qualifications for the position, and it is no more than right that he should be re-elected by a rousing majority, and republicans and democrats alike should support him if for no other reason in the world than the fact that newspapers are trying to blacken his character by such arguments as they use, and the people should put the seal of condemnation upon such methods by electing him by an increased majority. The Courier's Predicament. Wesley Reporter: For some time the Algona Courier has been going into spasms over the fact that at one time Judge Quarton defended a blue sky client, and stated that the man who was guilty of such a crime was not fit to sit on the bench, and now it has been discovered that Mr, Sullivan, the democratic candidate for district judge, ha& had a similiar experience. To be consistent the Courier should continue to stick to its text and demand Mr. Sullivan's withdrawal. . Uecoenlzea Their Strength. Spencer Reporter; The fact that the democrats find it necessary to belittle the republican candidates proves the more conclusively that they recognize the strength and popularity of our men. * * * The democrats, without an issue and without candidates in whom they can place confidence, are in a sorry plight to be sure, but it illy becomes them to give way to abuse of honorable men. • Quarton should Be He-elected. Rolfe Reveille: Our democratic broth- em are trying to convey the impression that because a judge is reversed occasionally he should not be retained. The best judges in Iowa are occasionally reversed by the supreme court. Judge Quarton's four years' experience has better fitted him for the position and there is no reason why he should, not be re-elected. ALesaoiiluGoodMcumera. The Spencer Herald, which ia dyed* in-tbe'wool democratic, ftod which is fighting for Cohoon and Sullivan, gives the Courier an example of decency in political discussion that is worthy of notice, Here is its reference to republican candidates; Mr. HeUeii gad Mr. Quarton are goods faUpwg socially, pleasant to meet j^d both of them, good attorneys. ^ \ "
