REAL ESTATE LOANS, FARMS ANP WIUHAN0S, C, C. 3AMSON, A!gona, lows L, ADAMS ON THE GUTTERSNIPES The following letter voices the sentiments of democrats as well as republicans In Kossuth on a " guttersnipe cam- lalgn:" LOTTS CREEK, Oct. 30.—The election s close at hand and the outrageous war vill soon be closed as far as the papers TO concerned, it is to be hoped. I mve received two lots of stuff against udges Quarton and Helsell, (and I sup- )ose others have,) headed Republican upplement, but what Republican is not tated, I consigned them to the flames is soon as I found out what they were. Everything in them may be true for all '. know, but they look very suspicious o be sent that way when there are so many papers that they could bo pub- Ished in If true. The heading "Re- jublican" moans nothingunloss wo road t anonymous, which we are taught to loliovo is low-lived at tho least, and no should consider It unsafe to be led jy them. Truth will stand daylight, "udgo Quarton I am acquainted with, udgo Helsoll I am not, but I am in- jlinod to believe they are tho men, or he opposition would not adopt suoh underhand ways to beat them, N. 0. TAYLOR. Al.. Adiuns on " Guttersnipes." Al. Adams in the Humboldt Indo- Jondeiit sixes up the Courier's dlshon- ist and indecent assault on the record and character of Judge Quarton. He ays: The guttersnipes that have been distributed in Humboldt the past week ittacking tho republican candidates for udge, Hon. F. H. Helsoll and our present judge, Hon. W. B. Quavton, are laving tho effect of opening the eyes of the republican voters to tho dirty ricks of tho opposition, and tho vote on election day will demonstrate that he verdict of the jury and sentence of -ho judge in the J. J. Bru'co case in Buena Vista county has been affirmed >y the voters of this district. Tho guttersnipe is always a dirty bird and ils pleading with republican voters ihat the pop candidates "cannot be elected without your assistance," shows where he expects his dirty work to ;ake effect. It will fall, however. If the republicans had not wanted the landidates they vvould not have been nominated. An 111 Gotten Child. Wesley Reporter: After Nov. 8 the Algona Courier will have tho august satisfaction of knowing it did all in Its Dower to blacken the character of one )f Its fellow citizens, but such an ill- Cotton child will prove poor comfort to ts wretched father. Judge Quarton can court such malicious treatment rom his opponent's organ, for all reasonable people know such a boomerang always goes homo to roost. Don't Dare Face tho Record. Spirit Lake Beacon: The papers placing so much stress upon Judge Quarton's supreme court record are :areful to confine their criticisms to ihis year. Their purpose could not be served by taking the record of the en,ire term for the number of reversals is oy no means unusual. The Courier Printed Them. The Swea City Herald says: The real Issue In the blue sky business is which printing office furnished the contracts that turned out to be notes after receiving a granger's signature. The Courier Didn't Seo It. The Courier refuses to tell its readers that Judge Quarton has been sustained in three decisions at this term of the supreme court. The Courier dare not publish Judge Quartan's record in the supreme court. He Did Not Say It. The Ruthven Free Press has been deceived by the democratic reports that Judge Quarton said in sentencing HOB- kins of the Sioux Rapids Republican, that "newspapers need muzzling." What the judge said was that newspapers should not feel free to publish criminal charges against citizens with impunity, and that too little caution is observed in many cases. The Cedar Rapids Republican and other state pera commended the judge's words editorially. He was right, as every newspaper man well knows. FOR rent: Improved- farm three miles west of Wesley, 200 acres, for paign" for the November Scrlbner's. tie pays high tribute to the generals and troops who made the closing campaign of the war seem more like a triumphal parade than an aggressive advance through an enemy's country, and Shows that both regulars and volunteers did the work before them in a way to satisfy the most exacting military demands. The article also gives a vivid and clear impression of the country and people, and describes many picturesque and amusing Incidents that give Mr. Davis' work so much human interest.

The petitions requesting the city counoil to submit the proposition to give the Iowa Central railway a five per cent, tax if It will come to Algona before Sept. 1, 1899, were presented Saturday evening at the regular meet" ing. They contained the names of a big majority of the free-holders of the city and also a. big majority of the voters. Hardly a person refused to sign, and the only reason the petitions did ndt'contain the names of substantially nil the citizens of town was because the committee did not consider it necessary to circulate them after enough wore secured. The council has called the election for Nov. 8, the day of general election, but in accordance with tho provisions of the statute, it fixed separate polling places and separate judges of election. This means that the whole malter will be settled next Tuesday, and Algona will be booked for a boom next year. Tho polling booth in the First ward will bo in tho Cleary building, and the judges will bo Alex. White, H. O. Buell, and C. F. C. Laago; clerics, G. S. Foster, and E. E. Blackford. In the Second ward tho polling booth will bo in the skating rink. The judges will be F. W. Dlngloy, S. E. HoMahon, and W. K. Ferguson; clerks, J. L. Donahoo and C. D. Pettibono.

PRAIRIE AND CORWITH. The moment it is certain that the road is to come to Algona, tho lino southeast will be determined by the action tbo citizens take. It will go through Prairie if a tax is voted and a station will be put in somewhere near the church. It will also go to Corwith, on the same conditions, and a big meeting was held there yesterday to work, matters up. Geo, O. Call, Mayor Chrlsohllles, C. C. Chubb, and others attended.
