A Friend of the Measure Explains the Purpose of the Law—City Council Record. PROFESSIONAL. l w''W-Su''^'-.^'Vw^->X - ^vX^wl' < *^-Srf-Xrf—W"^. CLARKE & COHENOUR, ATTORNEYS AT LAW. Office over First National bank, Algona, la. E. H. CLARKE, ATTORNEY AT LAW. Collection agent. Boston block. Ostrom has preached able sermons and Mr. Hillis has given Algona a service of sacred song that has everywhere been commended. Above all the churches have been united and earnest and the thorough fraternity of the pastors and people has contributed much to the work. The aim of Mr. Ostrpm is clearly set forth in the declaration that he does not seek to stir the community or create a spasm of activity but rather to lay permanent founda- tions in character for earnest every day Christian labor. The services last night were Interesting, and the men's meeting at the close in the lecture room was a marked affair. Messrs. Ostrom and Hillis will remain until Sunday night. Announcements will be made at the meetings and on the street signs, but the general announcement (if 3 o'clock and 7:16 services may be made. The afternoon addresses of Mr. Ostrom are very able and the singing of Mr. Hillis at all services is simply grand. The hope is ttxat the last few days of the stay of these gentlemen will be set apart by business men and all to get all the advantage of these services possible.

The city council tabled the petition for a curfew bell ordinance. The discussion developed the fact that but one of the city fathers really favored it. The reasons for the petition are succinctly stated by Miss Nellie Hamilton, who was mainly instrumental in the movement: Those who have watched the progress of the curfew movement in Algona for the last fifteen months will rejoice to know that the canvass for the petition resulted in the signature of something over 500 names, by which the majority of the homes in the city are represented. Briefly stated, our our reasons for wishing to have a curfew ordinance are: That the children may better develop good habits through it, and that they may be kept from the temptations of the street until they are strong enough to resist evil forces. We believe it much better to prevent crime than to punish it. Those who refused to sign the curfew petition are a small minority, generally giving as their reason that they do not wish to govern other people's children, but they are quite willing to punish them when made grown-up criminals or even before. For an offender of the ordinance, we would have the punishment visited upon the parents in the sfriupe of a fine, thus placing the responsibility where it belongs. Now if we have a town clock it can give the curfew signal. The curfew movement was inaugurated by the Boys' and Girls' Home Employment association In 1894 to put a check upon the increase of youthful criminals. The ordinance is now in force in over 300 towns and cities, mostly in the middle west. With few exceptions it has met with the warm commendation of city officials and the cordial support of parents, being easily enforced and effecting a great im-provemerit in the youth of the cities where it is in operation. Many testimonies might be given in commendation of the curfew where it is in force, but as they are in substance much alike we give only the following: The mayor of Des Moines Is enthusiastic in his praise of the law; says there have been few arrests under it, but the effect has been all that could be desired.
