NEWS OF THE RAILROADS, WORK IB BEGUN ON BELMOND LINE, Sac City Line is Surveyed to Rolfe— A Miscellaneous Collection of Railroad Items. THE UPPER DBS MOINES has in* dustriously collected all the railway news of the week and gives it in this column. If the reader knows any more about the situation after perusing the various paragraphs he may be thankful. Prairie votes Saturday on the tax for the Belmond, and will undoubtedly join the other townships along the line. If the tax is voted the station will be near the church. The surveyors on the Belraond tire at work on the line between Belmond and lorwlth. They will not survey west of lorwlth until Prairie's vote is in. The Algona committee appointed to jo to Chicago and consult with the Northwestern officials expects to be notified any day that President Hughitt is home from New York. The Sao City and Algona line seems to be pretty well located as far as Rolfe. The line from Rolfo to Algona is still in the air. The idea prevails, lioweyer, that it will cross the river to Bradgale and then northeast to a junction north of Irvington. The line from Burt northwest seems .Ikely to run west Into Fenton. It will soon be known. What Juduo Uubburd Soya. Judge N. M. Hubbard of the Northwestern railway was in Denispn Wednesday, While there he accorded in interview to a representative of the Review. He stated that the Northwestern was prepared to do great hlngs for Denlson. " Your city," said the judge, "will be the head of the new division which will be a through Ine to Minneapolis and St. Paul. All through freights to Chicago will pass over this new division." "President Hughltt told me," continued the judge, " that he intended to build a depot here that would be worthy of the governor's town. The proposed depot will eclipse the North western's Broadway depot at Council Bluffs, and will be one of the finest on the road. It will be built of stone and compressed brick with slate or tile roof and will cost from $35,000 to $40,000. The platform will be 800 foot in length, and the trains will run under sheds of equal length. Lowing nt Deulson. The Illinois Central has brought suit at Denison to prevent the Northwestern from condemning a block in the city for depot purposes. It claims, that It had planned to use that block and that the Northwestern jumped in for spite. The Tl ton lea Train. Engine No. 1 drawing a fine passenger coach went north through Iowa Palls on Monday morning, bound for the great Cedar Rapids, Garner & Northwestern line. Both engine and coach were lettered to correspond with the name of the road and the train was in charge of Conductor A. C. Allen who wore a nobby blue uniform trimmed with brass buttons as big as door knobs and bound with gold lace. The Sentinel says: The engine has a cow catcher a both ends to enable it to run in opposite directions at the same time, at least that was the way "Con." Allen explained it, though some think that it was built that way at the suggestion of Editor Bush in order to avoid a collision with Ed. Bailey of the Brltt Tribune. May Not Hoacli TUoiika. Work on the Cedar Rapids, Garner & Northwestern railway Is progressing as rapidly as the severe winter weather will allow. The track Is completed to Crystal Lake and regular trains are running between that point and Garner. West of Crystal Lake the grade is finished to where the new town will be located in Bingham township, and the track Is being laid as rapidly as possible. A carload of framed depot material has been shipped to Crystal Lake, and the depot at that point will be built immediately. Should the weather moderate the road will be completed to Titonka In Kossuth county by Jan. 1, but If not work will be suspended until spring after Bingham is reached. Pooled. Issues In Amsterdam. Brltt News: The two railroads contesting for the tax in Arasterdom tpwn- ship pooled their interests at the election and the tax carried by a vote of 97 votes for and 45 against taxation. Un- der this arrangement the Northwestern road gets one-half of the tax and the Central road gets the other one- half. This le a splendid good plan, The compromise gives part of the tax to each road and leaves a good feeling between Brltt and our friends In Cor" with that have done so much for us. Brttt will get a railroad, Corwith will get one also. _ ,_ Bad Accident at Two Milwaukee freight cars jumped the track on the heavy grade east of Garner last week, and broke' the train In two. The engine and fore part of the train went through town a mite a minute to keep out of the way of the rear part which came down hill at lightning speed. _ Straifrhtenitift the Line. Sao Sun: The surveyors of the Sao City and Algona extension of theNorth- western railway returned to Sac City and haye made their headquarter at the Beimer house again for a few days. They are running another line north from the city, this time going about a half mile further north before striking northeast to Fonda. They Will All Come. Spencer Herald: It's a poor town that is not talking new railroads these days. The Algona papers have built every railroad in sight into their town — on paper — and ai-e looking for now worlds to conquer. _ Wall Lake Expects a Roundhouse. Wall Lake Blade: The Northwestern has purchased some 60 or 70 acres of ground near the depot at this place. Part of it will be used for a "Y" for the new line from Denloon, but what the other 50 acres will bo used for is a mystery to us. Some think it moans land for roundhouse and shops. The company owns quite a strip of land adjoining this, and the two together may be used for side tracks, roundhouse and machine shops. _ Speechless at Armstrong. Pilot: The county surveyor of Kossuth has made the final survey for the Northwestern out of Burt to the county line west. The company's right-of-way man Is In Armstrong now, but like those who have been here before on railroad business he becomes speechless when asked about the proposed line. The Latest at Rolfo. Reveille: The Northwestern surveyors finished up here Tuesday and left for Sao City, from which place they expect to be ordered home, No survey has yet been made from Rolfe to Algona. Four surveys have been made out of Pocahontas north, two striking our branch of the Northwestern between two and three miles west, the other two just in the outskirts of town, near the egg house. The last survey was the one upon which the most time was spent and-undoubtedly will be the one used if the road is built. It strikes the Northwestern track directly south of W. P. Wheeler's residence. Nothing definite can be found out by the ordinary mortal. The company is making no promises, but If It wants the line it is perfectly able to build it. Nothing more will be known about the road until spring — at least that is our humble opinion. _ Trouble for Pocahontas. Rolfe Times: Real estate in Pooa- hontas has taken a back set from the 500 per cent, advance which it took about two weeks ago, The last survey which touched Rolfe runs east of Pooa- hontas, and now the surveyors are ordered back to Sao City to make another survey on a straight line from Sao City to Rolfe, which will run three or four miles east of Pocahontas if a straight line is run. _ Survey mulshed to Rolfe. Pooahontas Record: Philip A. Burkhardt, who Is connected with the North western's surveying corps, passed through town on Tuesday enroute to Sao City. He said they finished the survey to Rolfe on Monday night and that they had been ordered to Sao City where they expected to receive further orders. Mr. Burkbardt went through the Santiago campaign with an Illinois regiment and has some Interesting stories to tell. _ We Want Poultry. And we are ready to receive it at the brick creamery building at the Mil waukee depot. We have moved from the old stand under Goeders' store. Call and see us before selling. W. S. WiLCOX.

The report from Buffalo Is that new Titotika railway ia being laid over ,he snow iti a hurry. Ovef one toiie of ties are down on one level stretch with* out a shovel of Jfraditig, The engine ias to run into Titbhka by Jan. 1 to iold the tax, and the railway men don't propose to lose $8,000. They will do the grading later. The faceting Friday evening to re* organize the social union club was a success. Officers were chosen and the opening meeting will he on next week Saturday evening at the court house. Prof. Spencer is the program commit-. ;ee for the evening. The officers are Dr. McCoy, president; Mrs. Rev. Day, Ice president; C. M. Doxsee, treasurer* The Iron piers for the mill bridge are iere and Mr. Austin of Webster City s at work setting them. John G. Smith Is superintending the work, which Is being done by the day. He says the county can buy Its own ma- erlal and hire labor by the day and get jetter nnd cheaper bridges than it can by contracting. This mill bridge, he ays, will demonstrate the fact. W. W. Halght says he has had enough of Kossuth grading at the irlces he took the work at this season, n dry seasons he paid expenses but the Hist season has been a hard one on him, "n the spring there was some talk that 10 had a snap contract, but It is lucky or our local bidders that they did not ret his contract. One of the county officials estimates that he is out $1,000 on the summer's work. W. J. Lang was down on the line he- ween Donison and Wall Lake last week and reports that bad Weather Is cutting no figure with the Northwest- rn workers. The grade across < Wall juke slough is being made with wheelbarrows, Three surveys have been run between Sac City and Rolfe and the Ine will bo definitely located at once. JYom Rolfe north no one seemed to <now what was being done. Beginning Friday the Durdall oloth- ng house will have a big closing sale luring December. These sales among our Algona merchants are getting widely advertised and are drawing .rade from big distances. The bigger ,he trade the lower the prices that can >e quoted, and the lower the prices the bigger the trade. Mr. Durdall's sale will be well worth attending by people who do not usually come to Algona. W. W. Haight's grading outfit created a sensation down in Pooahontaa ast week. He was taking it home 'romKossuth, and left it standing in the street there. Someone suspected t was the Northwestern grading crew outfit in town, and the news spread. A renerul celebration set in during which Port C. Barron executed a war dance n the middle of the street. Haight is very unpopular in Pooahontas since he showed up and claimed the graders. Dr. Keneflok is doing some skin grafting on W. H. Jones' foot that was scalded lately in the threshing engine accident. The whole front of the foot ind ankle will have to be covered. This is done by putting on little patches of healthy skin in spots. Each one jrows out at the edges and in a short ,ime the foot is covered, The healthy skin is flaked off from anybody who is willing. Most of it will come, however, from Mr. Jones' other leg. A. Lindquist boy from Bancroft is in juil boarding out an $80 fine. He and iis brother set upon a brother labor- ng man with clubs and did him up very effectually. The assault was not wholly unprovoked, for the man who was damaged had struck the younger Lindquist without reason while he was arrylng water at John, Ludwig's, where both were working. The boys were tried before 'Squire Barge who assessed a $20 fine to one and $80 to the other. The $20 fine was paid. The county attorney prosecuted. Spedon, the caricaturist, tried to make flying connections for his Algona engagement, and landed on a freight out east wbioh was likely not to get to Algona until very late. Manager Wadsworth accordingly paid back their money to those who were out at the opera house and looked up. Spedon came in about 8:80 o'clock and professed to be much disappointed, He is a very pleasant appearing gentleman and would have given a good entertainment, but he can't expect people to take their chances on freight trains at this season of the year. ' O, Ingallsbee went to Chicago last week with 87 steers and struck the top market, getting $6.50 a hundred. One weighed even 2,000 pounds in Chicago and several tipped the scales at 1,900. These were most of them stags he had bought a year ago at $2.50 a hundred. The one that weighed 2,000 brought him $110 in Chicago, A year ago he paid $35 for the same animal, weighing than 1,0'85 pounds. In one year he put on 1,000 pounds of meat, got several cents a pound more than he paid for what it weighed when he got it, and made a, gain of $75. That shows that feeding; cattle pays and that Mr. Jngallsbee knows how to feed. • For Sale, Fourteen cows, nine calves, eight them steer calves, will be sold on ot months' time on approved security, & J.
