Two new names have been added during the week to the list of legislative possibilities. Mr. S. X. Way of Wesley makes a formal announcement, and Mr. Gardner Cowles has been proposed by enough in Algona to make him a Considerable, factor in the contest if he consents to the use of his name. Although neither Mr. Mayne nor Mr. Brunson has announced that he is a candidate, both have been accepted as such by the public, arid tho result is that tho republicans of tho county will have a good list to draw from. Public sentiuiunt will naturally orys- tulize rapidly now that tho canvass is on, especially in view of tho fact that tho nominating convention may not be far off. Tho candidate for the legislature will be named at tho convention which is called to send delegates to tho senatorial convention, and us the latter may be called within four or six weeks it is not improbable that caucuses may be held shortly. Mr. Way's candidacy is one that will attract attention. He is a young man of political sagacity and has both the ability and energy to make a good record in the legislature. Wesley, moreover, has strong claims on the' republicans of the county. It has boon a republican stronghold uud has not in many years had a candidate on tho republican ticket. The suggestion of Gardner Cowles has boon brought out by the prospect of a normal school light. Since the teachers' meeting in Algona and Supt. Barrett's address it has boon accepted as a fact that the normal school question will bo up and that Algona's chance depends upon a vigorous and aggressive action. Very many have considered that no man in the county is better fitted to render efficient service than Mr. Cowlos, and the mention of his name is receiving a cordial response. The suggestion has come from sources remote from Mr. Cowles, and he has not finally decided to allow his name to be used. The general sentiment will undoubtedly be for early conventions, and a short canvass. If the senatorial convention is held not later than July 1, six weeks would be left. The senatorial convention should certainly not como later than the middle of July.' Some Timely Suggestions. Wesley News: A. D. Clarke has announced his candidacy for tho senator- ship from this district. He is the only candidate from this county so far announced. His ability is unquestioned, and if Kossuth county honors him with a delegation his chances for the nomination are good, as Kossuth holds the long end of the string. However, there are candidates from Algona for representative who may contest for the delegation. It would hardly seem good politics to choose both senator and representative from Algona. All local differences and potty strifes should be settled at home. If Kossuth had a senator and a representative and the Tenth district a U. S. senator (Dolliver) we would begin to be quite the people. ed mayor of.Whittemore, He will be Mrs, H hustler for the public good. Dorweilerfson the school board. Lu Verne News: A. A. Brunson of Algona was In town Monday and made this office a pleasant call. Lu Verne News: The north part of the county has been booming A. D. Clarke of Algona for state senator from this district to succeed Senator Funk. Mr. Clarke may be all right for the plnce, but what's the matter with our popular citizen and banker, Geo. W. Hanna, for that place? We do not know what George may think about it, but we believe he would be just the man for the place. Ledyard Leader: It is rumored that A. D. Clarke will not be the only candidate for state senator in big Ksssuth county. OOL. MARTIN AND HIS ROAD, IS A VERY LIBERAL OFFEft Geo. W* Schee of Primffhaf Makes One That Should Be Accepted, The Town Cniitrnl niid Its Town Manager—A Sketch of Local Iii- torost. Col. L. M. Martin of Marshalltown. who is pushing the Iowa Central into Algona, is very sick and has been for some time with typhoid fever. He is now on tho road to recovery. He has had quite a remarkable career as a railroader, and Cyrenus Colo, who knew him as a station agent, tells about it in the Cedar Rapids Republican: Colonel Martin, or "Lark," as he was' Jamiliarly known in Marion county 20 years ago, when tho writer was a school boy and "Lurk" held tho high position of day operator at the Pella station on tho Rock Island, is one of the royalest men Iowa has turned out. Ho is a self-made man in tho best Bouse of tho word. He lived on a farm down in tho Des Moines river bottom when ho began to aspire to be a railroad man. There was then not a railroad within six miles of his home, but since then the Wabash has penetrated that area of low ground along the river. Prom that time it .was always forward and onward with L. M. Martin. Ho was the Iowa agent for the Wabash and he was general manager of the Dos Moines, Northern & Western and other lines. In 1894, in the midst of the hard times, Colonel Martin was called to the genortil management of tho Iowa Central lines, and he has given his undivided attention to those interests since. What he has done for that road almost surpasses belief, considering that the times have been so hard. He has lifted the road out of the mud by ballasting. He has caused to bo »ut down 12,000 tons of steel rails between Oskaloosa and Peprin. The rolling stock has been rebuilt and increased. Twelve new engines of modern make have been added to the equipment, seven now passenger cars and 750 new freight cars have been purchased. Six new steel bridges have been put in, and stone masonry substituted for wooden pilings in a dozen other bridges. Several new brick stations have been built. Five thousand lineal feet of wooden bridges have been filled with dirt. All the steepest grades have been cut down and all the cars have been equipped with automatic bi'akes and couplers, as required by law. All this has been done in five years, says the Railway Age, and that Proposes to Give $5O to Each of the 22 Counties lor the Purpose of Purchasing Books. Geo. W. Schee of Primghar, a former member of the legislature and a well- known republican politician, 'made a very liberal proposition to the teachers met in Algona a week ago. He proposed to give to each of the22 counties in northwestern Iowa, each year for ten years, tho sum of $60 for the purchase of books for teachers' libraries, on the condition that tho county shall raise an equal amount annually for the same purpose. The total of these contributions would be $22,000 for libraries for the use of teachers. Both the general association and the county superintendents' section adopted resolutions thanking the donor for hie gen- ' erous proposition. Success In Every Way. Emmetsburg Democrat: The Northwestern Teachers' association held .at Algona proved a success in every particular. Over 90 teachers from this county were in attendance and all feel amply paid for the effort that was put forth to attend, and unanimously declare Algona to be the most hospitable city they have visited. No effort was spared by the citizens to make everything pleasant for the visiting teachers. Every train was met by carriages to convey the teachers to any part of the city. The private houses were thrown open to entertain them, the churches, opera house, and armory were at their disposal. The program at the general association was in every way equal to any tho association has ever rendered, and all of the section meetings were said to have been exceptionally good. On Friday evening the teachers of Algona gave a reception at the M. E. church, which proved the crowning event of the riccasion. SULLIVAN & McMAHON, ATTORNEYS AT LAW, Office in Hoxie-Percuson bl jck.

BfST, p. j). 8, Tfor Dolllver First. "Greene county is primarily.for Mr. Dolliver for United States senator," said County Superintendent W. E. Jenison of Jefferson to a reporter for the Register at the Savery Tuesday evening. "I believe the entire Tenth and Eleventh districts would be for Mr. Dolliver if he were a candidate. I know about Greene county; the people there love Dolliver and they would be for him as against any other candidate. They like Shaw and they like Cummins and there are many who like Gear, but Dolliver Is first in their hearts. They would be glad to see him a candidate that they might support him. They believe he is the best orator and the biggest man, intellectually, of any of the candidates mentioned for the senatorship, Up our way Dolliver's friends have a hope down deep in their hearts that things will so shape themselves that he will be a candidate." ' Political Notes. The senatorial convention for the second district east of us is to be held at Mason City, July 20. Senator Harriman has no opposition for a renomiua- tion. Cedar Rapids Republican:»The Webster City Freeman and the Boone Republican are Tenth district papers that seem to be soured on Congressman Dolliver. As Tenth district papers they ought rather to be proud that they are represented by a man who occupies such an influential position. Al. Adams says in the Humboldt Independent: It is reported in some of the papers that P. M. Barslou of Bancroft will be a candidate for the office of representative from Kossuth county. From a long acquaintance with Mr. B. we are glad that the opportunity is offered the people up there to support 80 honorable and high minded a gentleman for that office. Mr. Barslou is an old resident in Kossuth and our knowledge of him begins back in the years when it was heroic to be a oitjzen of northwest Iowa, and we hope to see him doing the honors of his district in the big-north hall of the s^ate house. Whfttemore Champion; While at Algona last week, we heard A. A. J3run gqu's name mentioned as a qandJfiats, foj- representative. Mr, Bj'Un^on. wpuld. mjjie a good r L ndidate, out of the earnings of the road. But better than all, under Colonel Martin $300,000 of floating debts have been paid off and for the first half of the present year a dividend of H per cent, was declared on tho preferred stock of the road. Such are the results of Martinism on the Iowa Central rail- rond. It is a record of which he and his friends have reason to be proud. THfi NORTHWESTERN WILL BUILD. I'urtof the Snc Clly-Algoim Line to Go In-Hello! General That All Will Ho Built. It is now probable that the Northwestern will build from Rolfe to Pocahontas, the middle half of its line to Algona. G. A. Heald of Pocahontas went to Chicago to see the officials and the company desired that the people of Pocahontas should submit a proposition that they would donate the right-of- way from Reubens or Rolfe toPocahon- tae. As this would be very expensive, at at informal meeting it was decided to appoint committees to interview the citizens and see what amount can be raised. If a sufficient amount can be raised to justify, a proposition will be submitted to the Northwestern company at its June meeting. The Pooahontas Record says: " The Record believes that the Northwestern company has given up building the Sao City line, at least this season, and if our people desire to secure a railroad they should leave no stone unturned. The intention is that the Northwestern will build this much of the Sac City line this year, and will probably complete the entire line next year. Every man interested in the welfare of Pocahontas and the entire county should do something towards helping this along." The general impression is, however, that the steel is piled up at Jewell Junction for the whole line, and that it will yet be built this year. Algona should be awake to the situation and keep in close touch with the Northwestern officials, STUDLKY dispenses free soda water on Thursday, the 18th, after 2 p. m.

Ames Times: Last week Algona set her doors wide open to the teachers of northwestern Iowa, and the writer, sailing under false colors accompanied some of the Ames teachers to that hospitable burg and mingled with the crowd as one of 'em, and for once in a life-time passed us a school ma'am without a protest. About 500 of the educators of that quarter of the state were present, and the meeting was full of interest and enthusiasm. Algona opened up her hearts, homes, and purse strings to the crowd and entertained it with a cordiality that makes one want to go ugain. Leaser Mention, Hurt Monitor:. There were about 400 teachers present from all oyer the state and they were royally entertained. Whittemore Champion: Algona did her best in tho way of entertainment and all the teachers went away glad that they had visited the "convention city of northern Iowa." Emmetsburg Reporter: A very large and profitable meeting is reported to have been held. The Emmetsburg teachers were loud in their praise of the hospitality which was extended to them in Algona. Humboldt Independent: Qur ladies are loud in their praise of the treatment accorded them by the people of Algona, who may rest assured that they will ever have a warm place in the breasts of our school ma'ams. Estherville Vindicator: The teachers returned ho,me from Algona late Saturday evening, riding on a freight train from Emmetsburg. They are unanimous in reporting a very pleasant time and that their attendance at the meeting proved exceptionally profitable to themselves. MONEY to loan at 5 per cent. A. D. CLARKE & Co.
