Indications that the Central is Looking for a Route Northwest. Graders Are Crowding the AVork AH Along the til ne—Trains 'Will Be in Algona Soon. That the Iowa Central Is already looking- for a route northwest beyond Algeria is apparent from the fact that its officials are in correspondence with parties in Emmot and Dickinson counties looking to this end. A Dickinson county mini is uutliority for the state mont thnt the Central people have their eyes on that territory, und have written to prominent men in those counties relative to extending their lino. The intimation is given out, however, that such extension will in no event he made before next year, and that Algona will bo the terminus of the lino for the present. Railway people arc not in the habit of tolling their plans to anyone', and hence no definite information on this matter ieat present obtainable. Yet it is wholly unlikely that the road should stop permanently at Algona, especially in view of the fact that there is a lino Hold for business through this northwest territory. It is said that surveyors for the Central have looked the ground over from Algona, by way of "Swan lake, though no lino has been run thai can bo said to definitely locate the route. Our informant, however, was confident, from what ho know of the situation, that the road would come their way at no very distant time. Grading la LtcliiK Pushed. The late heavy rains have boon more or less of a hindrance to the work of the graders on the Iowa Central, and yet it is being pushed with all the rapidity possible. Men and teams are throwing up the dirt only a short distance southeast of Algona, and the prospects are that trains on this line will be running into Algona before the stipulated time—Sept. J. In fact, except for the extreme lateness of the spring they might have been hero by the first of July. This is not now possible, but certainly they need not, under any ordinary circumstances, be delayed later than Aug. 1. The right-of- way is practically all secured between Belmond and Algona, and graders are at work on every mile of the line. Railway Notes. The wages are $3.25 a day for man and team on the Iowa Central grade work. Spirit Lake Beacon: Every few weeks a new rumor gets out that the Milwaukee will extend the Spirit Lake branch north this season. The latest comes by way of Spencer to the elTect that the lino will be extended direct to St. Paul before the close of 1900. Esthorville Democrat: Another outfit of graders arrived last night over the B., C. R. & N. from Arkansas and two more are expected this evening. E. J. Breen received word Thursday from the M. & St. Louis officials to proceed to close up the deals for the right- of-way for live miles south of town, as their contractor would be here ready for work Monday morning. The survey through the town from Main street north has been changed back to the st survey and now runs east of the W. J. Lough residence and misses the :rir grounds entirely. The officers of 'air association will now proceed iQwards completing arrangements for the fair this fall. Des Moines Leader: Two hundred laborers and 75 teams left St. Paul last night on a special train composed of Ive coaches and 15 freight cars, for Rockwell City to begin grading on the Milwaukee extension from that place ;o Sac City. The right-of-way from Rockwell City to Storm Lake has been nearly all secured, and now that the wet weather is over the contractors will rush the grading that the roadbed may be ready for the ties and steel in September. Agents for the contractors have been ransacking the large cities for laborers, and report a fail- degree of success, but great difficulty is met with employing teams, the supply Doing far less than the demand.

FUNERAL OF G. M. JOHNSON. Many Friends I'ay a Jjaat Tribute to Ills Memory. The attendance at the funeral of G. M. Johnson last Thursday afternoon was large, and besides those of his neighbors and many friends it included several of the old residents of Irvington, where he once resided. Rev. Stiles ionducted the exercises, assisted by Sev. Suckow. The remains were then jaken to the Irvington cemetery for in- ;erment. Deceased was born at Meredith, N. Y., Deo. 4, 1844, and was consequently 55 years of age. He came to Jackson county, Iowa, in 1865, and later to Kos- sqfch county, where he took a homestead in Irvington township, and lived there until about 1878, moving then to Algona. He was married at Lymi rove, Iowa, in 1866, to Mary Ann Zimmerman, who, together with three ions and three daughters, yurvives m, One daughter died some years ago, Mr. Johnson was a man of sturdy character, upright in all bis dealings with, his fellows, and was held in high, regard, by all with whom u - contact. He was a man of strong convictions, but no man could say of him timt jhist purpose was not sincere or his Intentions honorable. A good man has gone in the death of G. M. John"son. Those who carne from a distance were Rev. Zimmerman of Scranton, Iowa, father of Mrs. Johnson, Rev. M. L. Johnson, a brother, from Marion, Intl., and two sisters of Mrs. Johnson. The family extend their gratitude for the kind ties of friends in their great sorrow. ' I>nvld Hoyer. David Royer, who lived on one of Addison Fisher's farms in Rivet-dale, mention of whose illness was made last week, died Thursday morning. The funeral occurred on Friday, conducted by the Odd Fellows' lodge of Livermore, of which Mr. Royer had long been a member. The LI vet-more Gazette says of him: Mr. Royer was a man In whom a keen interest was felt, by everybody who knew him. Whole- souled and genial, standing up under all kinds of misfortune in matters of finance and health, ho came the nearest to apparently making the sun shino on a cloudy day of anybody we know of.

This story on Fish Commissioner Delevan is going the rounds of the jress, and thus far has met with no denial, hence it must be true: Warden Delevan dropped down on a man fish- ng in the river near Cedar Rapids one day last week. Close by, attached to a string was a, good-sized pickerel flopping in the water. "Did you oatch that flsh¥" asked Delevun. "Yes," said the man, " you see it was like this. '. am fishing for suckers and that plaguey pickerel kep,t taking my bait and so I pulled him, out and tied him up until I get through, when I am go' ing to turn him loose." This explana- tt fairly patrajysefl tl}9 QQwnalwiQi»er< School Superintendent Cnrrlgan Tried for Alleged Breach of the Pence—Found Not Guilty. Whittemore had an interesting and more or less exciting case on trial last Friday. The chief cause for contention appears to have been the "class yell" of the high school students, and the aforesaid "yell" and the right to indulge in it is vindicated—that Is to say, it is right und proper, und neither the time nor the circumstance cuts any flguro. The trouble came about in this way: Tho graduating class from the high school held a banquet Thursday evening, at which, presumably, there was a full attendance of the students. After the banquet the students repaired to the street, and there, in the full glare of Whlttemoi-e's electric lights and without fear of future punishment, they proceeded to give the class yell, evidently with all the vigor that would characterize the sturdy boys nnd girls that raised in the Invigorating ozone of Iowa's broad prairies. To this, it is sidd, Mayor Dorweller, took exception, and on Friday Supt. Can-lean, who did not deny having been one of the party, WHS arrested by the city marshal and placed on trial before the mayor for having disturbed the peace and violated an ordinance of the city. The trial WHS attended by all the students and, according to all accounts, a liu-ge portion of Whittemore's best citizens. There is no controversy, either, over the statement that sentiment was all one way—on the side of Prof. Carrigan. Several witnesses were examined—mostly students—all of whom admitted having yelled themselves, but none of whom heard the professor indulge in any unseemly conduct, much less did he take part in the yelling. Welt, Miller prosecuted ascity attorney and J. W. Sullivan of Algona was culled over by Prof. Carrigan to defend him. After the evidence was all in and it was clear that no case had been made against the professor, Mr. Sullivan asked Mr. Miller if he intended to ask for a conviction on the evidence, and the latter wisely chose the only course that was left him by making a motion to dismiss the case, which motion was of course sustained, coming as it did from the prosecutingaltoi-ney. But the end was not yet, so far as the yelling was concerned. The students, whose yell had by no means been exhausted, then took counsel of Mr. Sullivan as to whether it would be legal for them to give vent to their pent-up feelings in one more rousing class yell. Just what he told them we are not advised, but the fact remains that they went back in front of Mayor Dorweiler's store, and all the other yells they had given are said to have sunk into utter insignificance beside the one they turned loose at that time. Then when Mr. Sullivan took his departure for home on the evening train the students were nil on the depot platform to speed the parting guest, and if the yell which they gave there was a sample of the others, there can be no further question as to the lung capacity of the Whittomoi-o high school students. Mrs. Dorweilor, who is an accomplished 'and well-educated lady, happens to be a member of the school board, and rumor has it that a little friction has existed between she and the professor. But this, 11 true, has nothing to do with the case. The whole question hinges on the class yell and the right to indulge in it. This seems to have been determined, for the present at least, and the yell Is on top by n big majority.
