Some of tho State Street Assessments —An Estimate oil City Property. As a matter of news THE UPPER DES MOINES gives the present assessment of the three main business blocks on State street.

Sullivan & McMahon have been notified that the Ingallabee-O'Rourke tree claim contest In Riverdale has been decided in favor of Ingallsbee in the department of the interior. This contest arose some years ago over 40 acres of the Ingallsbee farm. O'Rourke claimed that Ingallsbee had not. set out the proper trees, and that after the contest began he went out one night in August and planted more. At Des Molnes O'Rourke won adeoision, Judge Carr assisting S. S. Sessions in the case. A motion was. made at Des Moines to dismiss the contest after O'Rourke's testimony was all In on the ground that he had not made a case. The interior department now holds that the motion should have been sustained. There is still an appeal to the secretary himself. Blue Front Jewelry Store. We have a fine line of new jewelry, also watches, clocks, and silverware. Remember the blue front when in need of a fine job of repair work, always prompt and reliable. 4 E. G. BOWYER. ANOTHEE INDIAN NAME. Geo. C. CalJ's New Town In Amsterdam Township IB Kanawlia. The postoffice department declined to name the new Iowa Central town east of Corwlth Luzon, on account of Luzerne; and now tho name is Kanawha, pronounced Kanowa, an Indian name from the county in Virginia where Col. Martin was born. It is a pretty name and we think ought to be transplanted and given some local traditions. The boom at Kanawha has begun and bank buildings are going In ahead of the town lot plat. WOBK FOE THE PITY MARSHAL. Boys Destroy a L>ot of Property for O. B. Durdall-Where Are Our City Officers? Monday evening boys broke out the windows in the building O. B. Durdall Is moving, went In and smashed a $15 show case, took some of Thos. Henderson's tools, and set his warning lantern under the building where it could easily have started a big fire. No one has yet been arrested. The Actual Value Here. Spencer News; Of course there has been no such decrease in values there, for Algona is a thriving, prosperous city, and there is, doubtless, a marked increase in the real value of property there for the year. The new revenue law, or the abuse of it, Is probably cause of the shrinkage. A. D. CLARKE & Co. loan money at 5 per cent., with optional paymente Interest payable annually. All the prices. Sheet latest music at PlNQMSY teachers TH?!BE is no better •thftn that carried by M. line of cofees & SON, Carl Lenander was down from Bancroft Monday. When asked about local politics Carl looked wise but said nothing. The small grain has been gotten in the past week in good shape. Farmers are generally pleased with their seeding. A. B. Dunlap Is up from Oklahoma. He has a bank In Indian Territory now also, and Is getting rich. He likes the south. Mrs. E. P. Fuller of Irvington was called to Langworthy Monday by tho death of her mother, which occurred Sunday. The Matson & McCall supply of fine spring millinery is kept up to the season, and all in tho latest styles and best qualities. Prof. Herron spoke to a fair sized audience last night and voiced hts well known views on tho present industrial situation. John Meslng of Burt brought a bride from Huston. Minn., Friday, MlssClara M. Boyd, and got Dr. Day to tie the knot In Algona. E. J. Gilmore's store is getting new paper, and Doxsee's hardware new paint. A. D. Clarke is painting his brick block front. E. Tellier has bought the second building on the new hotel site and moved it near his home; He will make it into a house to rent. John Goeders' big basement opening was a success, The crowds could scarcely be accommodated. He names prices again this week that count. Lawyer Curtiss is buying a Columbia bicycle of the Wigwam. He Intends to use an electric bead light and will use it to hurry up the electric light plant. At the meeting of the city council the last of the month Mayor Bayers appoints a city marshal, and the street commissioner and other city officials will be elected. Schu & Waterhouse have bought the old Cleary building of J. W. Tennant and will move it on the lot east, where the Smith Bros.'scales were so long. They will rent it. Frank Kernan was over Monday from Wesley. Frank says new towns and the rumor of new towns don't disturb tho eastern metropolis. Wesley goes right on growing. The First Baptist church of Omaha is building a duplicate of our Algona Methodist church, and the World Herald says it is to be one of the finest churches in the city. J. F. Lacy has bought the building J. L. Edmonds has had his bicycle shop in, and moves It today to his barn lot. Dr. Kenefick owns the lot it has been on and will build an office. Now that the city fathers are done with valuations they ought to give their undivided attention to seeing that the electric lights are running before the school teachers come May 4. A Titonka restaurant keeper was before 'Squire Clarke last week charged with dispensing beer. He had no defense and was fined $50 and costs. He seemed rather Innocent in the matter. Peter Eokholm, who works for A. D. Clarke, had his bicycle stolen from the Clarke barn last Thursday night. It was a Sylvan wheel and he would be liberal if the thief would bring It back. Court meets next Monday. Owingto a three weeks' jury term In February and to Geo. E. Clarke's illness, it is possible that the jury will have nothing to do. A lot of equity matters can be attended to. Algona is to have an old time Uncle Tom's Cabin company tomorrow even- Ing, with a big'band and all the modern improvements. Uncle Tom never grows old. This company Is a big one and a good one. C. A. Spratt, the horse buyer, shipped out a fine lot of horses last week. Among the lot was a four-year-old that was sired by Wadsworth's Clydesdale and weighed 1,800 pounds. One team weighed almost two tons. J. W. Tennant has moved his family and is living for the present with Max Herbst. He expects to put in the summer in a trip with his covered wagon. As soon as he can he will move to his home in the north part of town. The town site of Lone Rock will be sold tomorrow, the Fenton site Friday, and the Ringsted site Saturday. The terms for lots are one fourth down and balance at 7 per cent. The agent will be on the town sites on these days. Chris Heise is getting plans from one of the big architects of the United States for his new home, and is going to top the hill at tbe end of Thorington with an old baronial castle, we guess. He does not authorize this suggestion, but it is a fair surmise. E. S-Johnson has sold the old Burnard house to J. H. McMurray, and work on big home, will begin soon. He expects an aunt to come to keep house for him. He is also building on the corner south of tbe Tennant house. J. F, Lacy will rent this place, F. D. Calkios fs workiqg up the cap- itnl for hie wholesale grocery. He will raise |6P,OOP, of which he put* in $25.000. There }a po doubt whatever that such an institution wHl pay, and he ia confident he can get tbe money to *»ai't it. The PPJPBB PBS knows that the business is Very profitable when carefully managed in other Iowa cities. An Algoi.a lady met Mrs. S. S, Sessions in St. Paul recently. To her Mrs. Sessions said that the colonel had been sick all winter^ confined to the house with rheumatic gout. He has fallen away in flesh so that his old friends would scarcely know him, D. B, Avey is planning to put branch harness shops in at both Hobart and Fenton. He has bought a building at Hobart and will open at once. Mr. Shackelford will have charge of the shop. He will buy a lot at Fenton and build. Mr. Avey will put In big stocks and run up-to-date stores. As reported last week E. P. Blrcher has rented the Tennant house. He has bought the furniture and has a three year lease. " Ed" at Bancroft ran one of the best and most popular hostelrles in Iowa, and he Is going to keep his reputation good In Algona. He will have a big run this season. H. C. Shadbolt tells the Emmetsburg Reporter that the county fair circuit speed program will be published in the Spirit of the West where all horsemen can see It, that entries will close 10 daya before each fair opens, and that a wild west show will give eight free exhibitions dally at each fair. A. M. Coan has sold his home to J. O. Reaver, who now becomes a full fledged Algonlan. This is the house and two lots just west of H. Hoxle's, and is a very pleasant as well as very convenient home for Mr. Reaver and his family. Algona is glad to welcome them as permanent additions. Oil for—. Painting, I It will pay every person who is going to do any painting to see me before buy* ing his OIL. In fact it will pay you to see me for anything in my line, when you want to buy. I am for business. James Patterson. Cowles' Block, Algona. With the the The recent bank statements show a big gain in deposits in Algona. The total is $480,947.48, as follows: Kossuth County State bank $180,863.44, First National bank $172,606.00, and Algona State bank $127,479.44. This is at least 50 percent, more money than ever before shown by tbe Algona'banks. The Algona Deposit and Loan association met yesterday afternoon and adopted new by-laws. The main change was reducing the rate of interest at which money, will bo loaned and making liberal provisions for withdrawals. This company now has the most liberal withdrawal provisions of any company in the state. . A good suggestion for the spring of our boom season is that the city have Mr. Carlon grade up the alleys and then have the city marshal keep them clean. There is an ordinance against manure, ashes, and Fine Repairing a refuse in the alleys. Let Algona clean custom Work, up, keep healthy, and make the alleys something besides eye sores. Algona secures an osteopath doctor along with the spring boom, Dr. Ran- kln. He comes with his wife and has secured rooms and an office in the Heise block. Dr. Rankln Is a fine appearing gentleman and is a graduate Of the Kirksville school. Osteopathy is having a great run, and he says it is because osteopaths cure people. If the Bohn case against the Northwestern comes up again the largo and variegated display of burned fence posts that the lawyers talked about so eloquently will not bo In evldonce. After the first trial Mat. Holzbauer wanted some kindling and seeing these nicely cleaned and dried pieces he proceeded to dump them into the court house furnace, County Superintendent VanErdewyk will not be a candidate for re-election this fall. He has accepted the prlnci- palehip of the Burl schools, the board raising the salary to $75 a month. This is better than the county superlntend- ency at $100 a month, counting out expenses. Supt. Varj Erdewyk has boon a good official, but this is going to be a republican year, and politics is rather ruthless. We are sorry to lose him from Algona. Two old railway cases would be on for trial at this term if Geo. E. Clarke were up. One is the Bohn case against the Northwestern for the horses killed the night of tho big cyclone which blew down the railway fence and let them out on the track. That has been sent back by the supreme court, because one of the jurors before was a workman for the Northwestern when the fence was built. The other case la the Gorman case against the Minneapolis &, St. Louis. Many years ago Gorman was killed at Lu Verne while braiung. The suit for damages was won by default one time and §7,000 awarded, but tho railway company got the case opened up. Messrs. Chase & Achatz have ordered the poles for their new telephone wires in Al^ona and expect them soon. They will then take out all the present poles and wires In town and put in a new and complete system. Their shortest pole will be 35 feet high and the new wires will probably be copper. They intend about Aug. 1 to put in a fine new switch board and hope to install at least 100 new 'phones. Algona is going to have an up-to-date telephone outfit. The reason of putting the telephone wires so high is to get them out of reach or the electric current on the light wires. If tho telephone wires were left near the light wires tho stronger light current would jump and ruin them. It is with great regret that THE UPPER DES MOINES is compelled to report that J. W. Hincbon said plain "damn" to the city council. And to think that lust fall he lectured on profanity! If he hud said tbe council was indulging in a wild revel of oriental imagination when it estimated his wealth, or even had Intimated that there wasn't half as much inflation in 16 to 1 as in the assessed value of bis shop, he would have been within tbe limits of legitimate protest. But to officially and with distinct enunciation suv plain, evervday, common street » damn," and to'look tbe " n" right on it so that the usual coffer dam, tinker's dam, roill dam, sheop dam, and other dam explanations are not available THE UPPER DES MOINES_ sub- rafts it to Judge Quarton whether judicial notice ought not to be taken of this unusual break from the customary standard of editorial ethics, MONEY to loan at 5 per cenMoterf st.
