KRf\FT CLOTHING COMPANY. BILED NOTICE OF CONTEST. $L. C. Smith Will Have a Recount on Vote Cast for Treasurer. iNotice Claims Mistakes in Every fl Precinct in the County—Contest Conies Dec. 18. L. C. Smith's notice of contest was iled Saturday. J. W. Sullivan appears 3 his attorney, and the notice claims Ijnjstakes in every precinct in the ffnty. The notice follows one form Job,is as follows: i v hat the judges of election of the rdale precinct of election at said on rejected and refused to count In ballots thereat for said con- t, the exact number of which, Contestant is unable to state, and ljudges of said precinct counted "is for the said incumbent [Ward] were improperly counted bei the same did not conform to the rements of'the law and did not jthe intention of the electors cast|he same to vote for the said in- Jent, the exact number of which tfaid contestant is unable to state." "Is same statement is made with re- ito the following precincts in the Ving order: Riverdale, Prairie, jjey, Buffalo, Burt, Cresco, Eagle, ''on, Garfield, German, Germania, t, Greenwood, Harrison, Hebron, gton, Ledyard, Lincoln, Lotts |k, Lu Verne, Plum Creek, Port- Ramsay, Sexton, Seneca, Sher'°i Springfield, Swea, Union, Whit- ire, and the four wards of Algona. 't the end of the list Mr. Smith ;es the following affidavit: " I, L. mith, being first duly sworn on depose and say that I am the con- it named in the above statement Jontest; that I have read my above /foregoing statement of contest and ,t the causes and all the statements 'forth therein are true, as I verily ; ave." is evident from the arrangement he townships in this statement of test that Mr. Smith relies on River- Te, Prairie, and Wesley, and wants to be counted first. If nothing yelops he will dismiss the contest, is a question, however, If having ught every precinct into question, can arrange which ones he will have unted first. It seems probable that e board will have the the townships unted in the i-egular order, which 'ould bring Prairie, Riverdale, and 'esley at the bottom of the list. The contest is set for Dec, 18. Warner Comedy Company, Emmetsburg Tribune: The Warner pmedy company held the boards in Jusio Hall for three nights last week |pd gave three of the best performan- ces a Music Hall audience has been favored with for some time. The company is a strong one, and the members first class people. Mrs. Warner is a charming actress, never failing to please her audience. She is strongly supported. In the serpentine dance, Mrs. Warner is admirable. The dance is performed in a costume of white silk, which took more than 100 yards to make, and under the rays of the calcium light, set off in almost endless colors, the effects are nuignifieierit. The illustrated songs, too, by Mr. Ross, are a great hit, over which the audience almost went wild. The company and its work are indeed a credit to Ben R. Warner, one of the veterans of the road and one of the most successful theatrical men of the west. They will be heartily welcomed when they come again. OOTJKT TO MEET NEXT WEEK. RIDE OVER THE CENTRAL Algfonians for an Outing 1 Took In the Big Distillery Town. Judge Quartern Will Hold nil Adjourned Session—Court Notes. The November term of court was cut short last week, only one equity case being hoard. Judge Quarton announced an adjourned term to open next Monday. A lot of equity matters will be disposed of. The equity case heard last week involved the title to the Bossinghani stock of goods at Hobart. Mr. Bossingham had traded it to T. B. Syck of Belmond for land in Kansas. There was a mortgage, and the dispute is over which has the mortgage to pay. F. M. Curtiss represented Bossingham and Swelling Syck, The judge took the case under advisement. The last jury case tried was a suit for $480 commission for selling land. Merely & Packard of Renwlck claimed to have made a sale of the Schipull farm near Lu- Verne, with Mr. Schipull's consent, and that afterwards he closed the deal and refused to compensate them. The jury gave a verdict of 150. Geo. E. Clarke and S. B. McMahon represented the plaintiffs and McGrath of Eagle Grove was with Schipull. In the note case between Andy Dunlap and Farrell of Ledyard the jury gave Andy what he claimed. In the contempt of court case he was dismissed without opposition. There will be no December term of court this year. The next term opens Feb. 19, 1900. The first case set is the Frost prosecution for selling liquor at Whittemore. This case has cost the county lots of money, as the witnesses have been called every term since Frost was indicted, audit has been continued for one reason or another each time. The Dr. Lacy cases will be heard in February, the Bohn fence case, and some other interesting cases. BOYS' icnee pants worth 40 cents for 18 cents at Star Clothing and Shoe Company, CAPES and jackets go at cut prices this week. G. L. GALBRAITH. No WONDER the Star Clothing and Shoe Co. is doing one of the biggest businesses ever known in the city of Algona and surrounding country. We are selling our goods as we advertise. We will he pleased to have everybody call at the Star Clothing and Shoe Co.'s. The great sale is now going on. Saw Many Sights of Interest, and Report a Really Delightful Excursion. Last Thursday morning an Algona party went to Peoria, 111., over the Iowa Central. It consisted of Geo. C. Call, M. Starr, B. P. Reed. Dr. Morse, C. C. Chubb, C. J. Doxsee and J. L. Bonar. The Courier and UPPER DES MoiNES were to have been personally represented, but business engagements interfered. The Peoria papers give considerable space to the visit, and dwell at some length on the now business that the connections over the Algona line promises. Peoria is the great stock and corn market of the United States, It has the biggest distillery in the world, and dozens of smaller ones, and cattle are fed at the distilleries by the thousand. The Algona visitors found 2,600 cattle in one shed. They are fed in troughs that connect with the vats direct, and the barns are cleaned by flushing with water, so but few men are needed to care for a great many cattle. Peoria has been before a big cattle and corn market for this part of Iowa, but will now with direct connections be much more important to this immediate locality. The party reports a most enjoyable ride across Iowa and Illinois, and a pleasant reception at Peoria. The Iowa Central officials showed the visitors about the city, and saw to it that they saw the sights. On the way home B. F. Reed got off at Marshalltown and visited his old home, Dr. Morse went to Des Moines. M. Starr came around by way of Chicago, and Geo. C, Call and Mr. Doxsee came by Mason City. The Peoria papers state that the party took special interest in the distilleries, but mention also that it visited the water works. We presume Bro. Starr was pilot In the latter expedition. ^ OLE BRAOKE IS A POET, His Volume Will Soon Be Out-A Bare Chance for Asjeiits. Ole Bracke sends the following notice to THE UPPER DES MOINES, which coming just ahead of the holiday season is especially timely. Our readers will recall Ole's poem in honor of the soldiers' celebration at Gerinania, published in this paper. It is to be hoped that in this volume the author gives the true version, either in prose Diverse, of his famous trip to New York, with a verse or two on Miss Helen Gould.

FAILS TO MATERIALIZE. • Miko McDoiioll's Wholesale Machinery Depot Fizzles Out—That Two Story Brick Still in the Air.

The latest In railway circles is the report that the Milwaukee road Is not to be left in this territory, and will open the spring by building 1 from Algona northwest through Armstrong. The Sherburn, Minn., Advance says the survey Is to be made at once and that the Milwaukee Intends to cut both the Northwestern and Burlington, while If there is any thing- in the report, it also intends to shut the-Iovm Central out of going- on to Okoboji. The Advance says: The Milwaukee is in shape financially to lend all competitors a liyely and Interesting cake walk in the matter of building new lines, and it will be no surprise to people generally if it undertakes the job of knocking chips from the shoulders of the Chicago & Northwestern management. With the building of such a line Sherburn would be assured division headquarters and big repair shops. Alicotia Hue Will Help Hampton. The Hampton Recorder says that the Iowa Central employes at that place have increased from seven to twenty- four on account of the Algona line, that the crews of three trains have headquarters there, and that Inst month's pay roll went above $3,000. Hampton is figuring on being a division point. Thnt Gerniniiln JLliie. A Buffalo Center delegation with G, W. Pangburn, A. W. Wlnden, and C. E. Mallory on it, went to Cedar Rapids last week to interview the Burlington officials and try to have the Minneapolis line start from Buffalo Center. The officials told them the line would start from Gerraania, the object of the company being to cut into the Northwestern as much as possible. New Time Card Up North. The Burlington train west at the crossing near Ledyard now goes at 3:10 p. m. and east at 6:15 p. m. The morning freight takes the place of the morning passenger east. Handsome Depot at Uenlson. The Illinois Central and Northwestern railways seem to be competing to see which can blow in the most money at Denison. The Centra), according to the Review, is to put in a depot 130x86 feet. It will be of stone und pressed brick with wide roof, heated by steam, with all the conveniences. The platform, which will temporarily be of wood, will reach from the old fair ground road to the railway crossing, a distance of about 750 feet. The company will also lay 900 feet of sidewalk connecting with the city sidewalk on Court street. The two blocks surrounding the depot will be converted into a handsome park with driveways and a walk extending diagonally from the corner opposite the west Denison mills to the east entrance of the station. The Hurllntftoii IB Up to Date. The Burlington has put an elegant chair car on its north and south trains through Emmetsburg, Estherville, etc., and Is giving the towns west of us metropolitan service. It Is also making fine Chicago time. The evening passenger leaves Emmetsburg at 6:44 and reaches Chlcngo at 7:59 the next morning. From Jollet to Chicago a Rock Island dining car is run, so that the passengers can have all the advantages of first class train service. Returning the train leaves Chicago at 4 o'clock In the evening and reaches Emtnetsburg at 6:20 the next morning. The diner Is run as far as West Liberty on the return trip, NOEMAL SOHOOL ENDORSEMENT. Tlio Kurt Monitor Says Aljfonn is the Place for a New State Normal — Handsome mid Accessible. • Algona will make a figTit In the legislature this winter for a state normal school. Gardner Cowles, who is just the man to put up a strong fight and show up Algona's claims, will get all the assistance possible from T, A. Way of the Hancock-Wright district, who is in sympathy with the movement. The Monitor hopes to see .Algona get the school. She ought to have it. As a town she is handsome as a picture, and when it comes to railroad facilities and geographical location no other town in this part of the state has greater claims which may rightfully be put forth.
