Goeders During the past week this judicial district has been flooded with letters and circulars attacking Judges Helsell and Quarton. They have not been sent out alike in all parts of the district, but have been put where they would "do the most good." Thus in Palo Alto county, where the Democrat has refused to open up the question of criminal defenses, the voters are each reached by a circular letter signed by W. I. Brannigan, urging other reasons for voting for Sullivan and Cohoon. Over on the west side the Sioux Rapids Republican smut mill has turned out a grist of slanders oh Judge Helsell, and on this side the Courier has done a like turn for Judge Quarton. Copies of each have been sent to any quarter where the possibility of exciting prejudice has presented itself. Enough evidence is in to make this the most disreputable, under-handed, tind cowardly campaign over conducted in this part of the state, a campaign absolutely without justification. In the supplement sent out by tho Courier there is not a single statement that is true in the sense in which tho Courier makes it, and to cap the cowardly lies that it contains the Courier ends the whole with the following falsehood, which is on the whole more contemptible than the rest: "The statements In the following editorials from the Algona Courier, published at Quarton's homo, have never been denied by Quarton's apologists, nor cannot be, for they are true." The Courier has won the distinction in this fight of doing the dirtiest and most cowardly political lying ever witnessed in this county. to rule and govern? T>ie crafty< unscrupulous politician, with no sense of honesty, Of right or wrong, can always secure his election over a good, upright opponent." DOLUVER IN E088UTH.

It will not win, but it will demonstrate what ambitious candidates will do to promote their political chances, and what newspapers will sometimes do to gratify prejudice and break down a majority party. Judge Quarton came to Algona unheralded by fame and without the advantages of friend or fortune. He embarked in the practice of law, and through tho saving grace of ability, character, and long days of diligence he established himself Id the confidence of the public and won success at the bar. After ten years of practice, when his fame as a lawyer wae secure, and his standing as a citizen above well founded reproach, this lawyer presented himself before a counsel of his party for judicial honors. He was accepted and his nomination was splendidly ratified at the polls. He has now been on the bench four years, and we challenge a successful denial of the statement that Judge Quarton has been faithful to the people—all the people; that he has not been swerved from the line of duty by fear, favor, or hope of reward; that he has shown ability as a jurist, and gives promise of marked usefulness to the district in a second term to which he is sure to be chosen. Upon these grounds every republican—every good citizen—can justify a vote for Judge Quarton, and a contemptuous disregard of the fusilade of falsehood and detraction inspired by partisan prejudice. HENRY DUBANT'S NEW BOOK. He Advocated Some Decided Changes —lawyers and Elections Uoth Superfluous. Henry Durant's book on education is out. It is a neat little pamphlet and contains many original suggestions of value. Every teacher in our schools should have a copy, and we have no doubt that the author would be pleased to see that all are provided, In chapter second Mr. Durant pictures ideal social and educational conditions. Our readers will be interested in the following paragraphs: "It is reported that you have no lawyers In your town." " We do not have any. We are taught that good people have no use for them. The last one who came is with us. His wife was such an accomplished and refined lady, and they had such a lovely little girl, that all felt that they must remain with us. The gentleman had a fine and diversified education. We needed a civil engineer, so the office of county surveyor was tendered him; that with the engineering was sufficient to give him a comfortable competency." " But do you not have trouble or circumstances In which a lawyer is a necessity V" "No, a congregation of good people never do." " How about your elections," "We do not have any. No one votes in our town. This is the only virtue of politics that no one is compelled to vote. We have a committee of ten, whose qualifications must be of the highest order, They select our officers who must pass a rigid examination. Good morals Is the basis. Ten men in the United States could be selected who would be much more competent to make selections for all offices, even to the president, than the masses are. Democracy is a failure so far as securing the best talent of the nation for officers is concerned.

Col. Stedman came yesterday with the blank petitions for an election on tho Belmond extension, and the committees have already secured a big list of names. There is practically no opposition to the tax, and Algona will vote it by an overwhelming majority. As soon as the petitions are in the election will be called by the city council. The date of the general election may be taken, as it will not be difficult to give sufficient notice. The election, in any event, will come as soon as possible. The petitions state explicitly what is to be done. The tax is to be payable only when the cars are running into Algona, and tho whole is null and void unless the cars come before Sept. 1. A PROBABLE EXTENSION. If the tax is voted along the line between here and Belmond, as it will undoubtedly be, THE UPPER DBS MOINES has no doubt that the company will prepare to extend, probably to the state line. The officials are saying nothing, but there is no reason to believe that they oxpect to stop at Algona. We shall be surprised if the surveyor does not go right on into Ponton and north as soon as it is sure that the line is to come to Algona. ANOTHER NEW LINE. Surveyors for somebody are at work on a new line from Burt northwest. It is said that they represent the Northwestern road, but the leader said when he went through Algona that he was not in the Northwestern employ. It was part of the original plan of tho Northwestern when it came to Kossuth to run a branch northwest, but it was never built. It may now be ready to put in such a line. THE BURLINGTON AT BUFFALO. Grading is now over to the Kossuth line and the new road seems to be assured into Buffalo township. .No stops have been taken to go further west. It is generally believed that Garner is grading the road and getting the right- of-way, the Burlington to put, on tho rails and run the trains. THE LINE TO DENISON. Nothing is heard more definite about the lino from Algona to Denison. The Northwestern is building from Denison to Wall Lake, and that connects direct to Sac City. No reason seems to exist for such a line unless it comes on to Algona. The Illinois Central is at work getting right-of-way from Fort Dodge to Council Bluffs, and the North western will undoubtedly do as has been talked. But the Northwestern does not say much. . 'THE TERRIBLE SWEDE." They have remained In Algona all the week and the run will be made Friday without fail. The Swede has pacers engaged from Cedar Rapids and Greene, who will come Thursday, and he will beat the pony, if he can. The track Is in fine condition and he is practicing on it every day. In addition a game of real Rugby football will be played between the Algona high school eleven and the Brltt boys. Brltt is said to have a well- trained eleven, while our boys have developed into experts in the past two weeks. It will bo a hot game, and will be tho first exhibition over seen hereabouts of the muoh-talked-of Rugby game. OLAY OLEMENT IN OMAHA. IMnys "Tho Southern Gentleman" llcforo Crowded Houses as An Exposition Attraction. Clay Clement and his splendid company began a throe days' season at the Boyd opera house in Omaha last Thursday evening. Our readers will be interested In the following comment on his opening night, at which he presented the play he will give in Algona tomorrow evening. The Omaha Bee CLAY CLEMENT. A FORGED IiAND TITLE, The Swoa City Uoiilt Almost Cauuht 'for a Large Sum of Money. Saturday a man named Chapman came to the bank at Swea City 'to borrow money on the Wm. Landman land in Grant township. He had a deed from Landman. As soon as the deed was filed here A. D. Clarke thought it strange Landman had sold and made inquiry. It turned out that the deed was a clear forgery, and that there is no such notary in Wlnnebago county as claimed to have certified to it. Chapman was to come to the bank yesterday for his money, and arrangements were at one made to arrest him if he appeared, but he failed to show up- . To Bent.

MONEY to loan at 5 per cent, A. D. CLARKE & Co. says: It must have warmed the heart of Clay Clement last evening as he looked out over the audience which filled every available seat and the standing room at the Boyd and remembered how he came here a few years ago, unheralded and unknown and played to a meager but appreciative audience. Not discouraged by the poor financial returns, he has been coming back each recurring season to find his circle of friends and admirers widening and last evening presented " A Southern Gentleman" to an audience only limited by the capacity of the house. Mr, Clement has improved both the play and his own conception of the characters since Its initial performance last season. Rather, it would be more proper to say that he has improved In his methods in the prologue. As was pointed out at the time last season the impetuous, fiery lieutenantcouid scarcely develop into the calm, self-contained and gentle spirit of 22 years later. This was the only thing which could then, be justly criticized for his characterization in the play itself was a most ideal one. There is not now any wider gap between the young lieutenant and the man of mature age than the natural outgrowth of the years that intervene and the character is in perfect consonance with itself. It is, like his Baron von Hohenstauffen in "The New Dominion," a gem of its kind. Mr. Clement's quiet methods, manly ways and. conscientious effort never fail to be pleasing to those who admire the refined and natural. None can excel him in the delivery of a pretty sentiment, in which both plays abound, and he assumes the haroio in a no less natural and effective ujanper, for there seems to be shining' through it all the outpouring of an sariiest soul. " A Southern Gentleman" is a delightful play and is in every way worthy of the generous reception accorded it. It will be repeated this evening and Saturday matinee and evening "The New Dominion" will be, presented. IT makes no difference to us whether you have been treated by doctors or' other remedies.
