There will be a mass convetition of the Peoples' Party at the court house in Algona on Thursday, June 6, 1895, at 1 o'clock p. m. for the purpose of electing delegates to attend the state convention to be held June 11, and for the transaction of such other business as the convention may determine. Kossuth county is entitled to four delegates. M. DB L. PARSONS, chairman. TROUBLE FOE MULCT SALOONS The mulct saloons in Des Moines are having serious trouble. Litigation has been going on for some time against them, on the ground of the insufficiency of names on their petition of consent, and now the supreme court has ruled squarely against them on a point which is understood to be vital to their continuance nnder their petition. Their only recourse, if they fail to show up enough names, will be to begin again and circulate a new petition. Following is the statement of the case as summarized in the press reports: The case was appealed from the Polk county district court on a ruling made by Judge Spurrier that the filing of-the petition of consent with the county auditor was not a judical act; that the auditor had no right to pass on its validity. This decision was affirmed by the supremo court. This throws the burden of proof on the saloon and liquor men and they must do it with the poll books. It has been almost demonstrated that there were not enough genuine signatures on the petition to make it valid in Polk county. This decision will undoubtedly close every saloon in Polk county. It is not believed that the petition can, in any way, be proved valid and sufficient. Tho case is entitled State vs. Ashert and State vs. iSavery House Hotel Co., and was a combination of all liquor dealers in the city. They claimed that as the county auditor had accepted and placed on tile the petition without challenge and the city council had granted them permission to commence business, the burden of proof to make the petitions valid and sufficient did not rest on them. Judge Spurrier gave an adverse decision. The supreme court was unanimous in affirming Judge Spurrier's decision this morning. Judge Kinne, however, still holding his opinion thattho law was unconstitutional. At Dubuque, also, the saloons are having trouble. In that law-defying locality the saloon keepers do not take the pains to circulate petitions and secure consent. They have been going on for years in the path of defiance of all law, but recently they have been subjected to taxation under the mulct and in the emergency they have had the audacity to appeal to the courts to restrain the county treasurer from collecting the mulct taxes. Judge Husted, before whom the application came, has denied their petition and warned them that unless the tax is paid their places will be closed. It is to be said, as some offset to the objections urged against the mulct law, that saloons do not like it. They find it very much in their way. In his recent speech at Memphis, Secretary Carlisle asserted the following propositions: 1. There is not a free coinage country in the world today that is not on a silver basis. 2. There is not a gold standard country in the world today that does not use. silver money along with gold. 3. There is not a silver standard country in the world today that uses any gold along with silver. 4. There is not a silver standard country in the world today that has more than one-third of the circulation per capita that the United States has. 5. There is not a silver standard country in the world today where the laboring man receives fair pay fjr his day's work. No, the democrats are not happy. Ex- Gov, Boies has come out for a fifty-cent silver dollar, and now Col. Chas, A. Clarke of Cedar Rapids, who is a likely candidate for the democratic nomination for Governor, says he is for the gold standard and for gold alone for money. A Christian Science "doctor" down at Davenport, after seeing his sister-in-law and niece die of diphtheria and a child take the disease and die from a lack of compliance with quarantine regulations, was arrested on Saturday for violation of the quarantine ordinance. The laws appear to be inadequate for tho punishment of offenses of this sort, The next legisla ture. ought to provide for the confinement of these .people in insane asylums or penli tentiarie.s, whiehev.e? may seem proper Society is entitled :to protection : against them, and there ought to be no hesitation in providing it. There was a small cyclone at Struble, fifty miles north of Sioux City, Saturday night. A large section of railroad track was washed out and much property was destroyed. There were lively winds that night in numerous quarters. v. Hoard, of Wisconsin, whom many citizens of Kossuth county know personally, and who is one of the best men iii tho world, has just been elected com mander of the Wisconsin department QJ the G. A, B, . ExrCongressman Boswell G. JJprr, tjie financial writer of the New York Triune and W, H.

State Superintendent Sabin has decided that school boards have full power to use contingent funds in providing cyclone caves. Mr. Sabin is an enthusiastic advo- late of tho cave proposition. Ex-Senator B. R. Cassatti president of the First National fiank of Pella, Iowa, attempted to take his life, Sunday, by cutting his throat. He failed in his purpose, but is reported to be in a dangerous condition, 'fie had been drinking and speculating oh the board of trade. The theory.that his desperate act was due to financial troubles has been confirmed by ,he suspension of Cassatt's bank. ?ICTOR DOlllVER ORATOR. IT MAS HAPPENED AGAIN. Algona vs, Multoneya—Score 44 to 9 in Favor of the Visiting Nine— The Picnic Game. If anv of our citizens cannot account for the Wild yelling and shouting down towards the fair ground on Memorial day we can explain it all by simply saying that the Mulroney nine, from Nevada township near Emtnetsburg, played—or tried to play—ball with us on that day. The game resulted in a score of 14 to 9 in favor of the Mul- •oneys. There was quite a good sized srowd out and to a man they all ob. ected to the umpire, who was brought over to help by the visiting team. Algona can play ball but she never was rood at "scrapping." Their umpire would make some rank decision and if ;he Algona boys kicked, the Mulroneys would all run and get on masks and ;hest protectors and with ball bats in ;heir fists would waltz up to some Algona boy about 12 or 13 years old and jordially invite him to "just smash me one." Their motto was, "we can ick you if we can't beat you at ball," and as our boys are all small and also cnewthat the Mulroneys had wives, sisters and children who would mourn their loss, they let them beat to avoid a fight. The umpire was' a little the worst imitation of what an umpire should be that we ever saw. Algona lost fully eight scores bv his decisions, besides being unable to fan as many as usual as he would not call strikes on his own men. It was amusing to see lim stand there, with a mask on his turkey-red face and eight or ten ball >ats handy, and make a decision favoring his side and when the kids n the crowd began to yell to "shoot the umpire" he would make a jump for a couple of bats and then want to fight every boy in the crowd not over 15 years of age—bootblacks excepted. The Mulroneys had an invitation to stay over and play the next day for $100 a side, but they thought they had better go home while they could and they took the "stock trainV home that evening. We found out through .uninterested parties that all they, had : been doing !or the last two months was playing ball, learning to yell and box, and composing poetry. Here is a taste of what they sprung on us. Run in on your toes, Slide on your nose, And never mind your clothes, The base ball season now is ripe. The batter hits the ball a horribleswipe, Look out or he'll knock it outof sight. And many others equally pathetic and poetical—as well as ear-splitting. The way their third baseman could yell "Aha!" would have made a fog horn turn green with envy, and if a good able-bodied, healthy mule could have heard their catcher kick it would want to go off and bury itself or vote the democratic ticket. It was casually remarked that there would be no chance for a wolf hunt this fall as those yells would scare away all the wolves this side of the Canada line. The game at the Burt picnic against Bancroft and Burt was a walk away for Algona, the score being 20 to 8 in our favor. It amused the crowd, however, and that was all that was expected. The game went off very quietly, there being no "bluffing" from either side though that is getting to be a pop ular fad among the "diampnd pound- ers. THE ELLSWORTH CASE. Victor B. Dolliver, of fort bodge, a younger brother of our coltfressman, will be the prator at AlgpM oti July 4th. Mr. Dolliver has attained considerable celebrity as a caiapaigh speaker, and his oratorical abilities have Won for him wide recognition > '"' There is probably no young man whotn the peo- >le of Kossuth would better like to lear on Independence day. :v The se* ection is heartily approved. Judge Carr is Reversed by the Supreme Court, and a New Trial Is Ordered, The case of Wm. C. Stevens vs, Eugene S. Ellsworth, appellant, from the Kossuth district court, has been disposed of by the supreme court and the decisions of Judge Carr, upon which it was appealed, have been reversed. The Begister gives the f ojjo.wing statement oftpecase und, f0f' ,th'e ppi.nts upqn which the supreme court bases its reversal: This is an action to recover an attorney fee of $5,000 from tho defendant for the services rendered by Charles A- Clark, ol Cenar Rapids, IBe was attorney for Mrs, Ellsworth at the time of the divorce proceedings which were dropped aftorColone Clark had set aside a divorce in favor 01 Ellsworth procured by fraud and intimidation. Colonel Clark was unable 10 gei service on Ellsworth in Iowa and assigned the account to the plaintiff in Illinois whore personal service was secured 01; Ellsworth,'who was living there at tho time. The suit was brought in Kossutb county because defendant had land there, The jury gave plaintiff a verdict and Su< preme Court sends the case back for a new trial on account o| errors in tho rulings o: the court below. One was that the Jury was permitted to consider the great wealth of defendant in fixing the amount of re* covery for pla'Jnftff. The other was that lawyers were permitted to testify as to the value of legal services who did not live in Barclin county, the home of the defendant. ^ Canned goods, ioo per pan at Patter son & Son's- * ttollivef , the Bf other of Stir Will deliver thft Ora'tibh iii -Algona oft the fourth—f he Musical and Other Popular A LIVELY BALL .It is settled that Algona will have a first class base ball game on the afternoon of the Fourth. The Algona club will arrange for a game with one of the jest clubs in the neighborhood. Armstrong and Fort Dodge are spoken of is likely competitors, but nothing can je known this early further than that .here will be a game between two of the best clubs in north west Iowa. The ame Will be played on the flat near jhe Northwestern depot, and it will be i free show to everybody who can get near enough. A BALLOON ASCENSION. The committee on amusements has been corresponding with an aeronaut with a view to securing a balloon ascension, and if the attraction., can be lad the ascent will take place at the conclusioh'of the ball game and from .he ball grounds. BAND MUSIC GALOKE. The Algona Cornet Band is already engaged to play its best music in A1-. gona on the Fourth. The Algona band, under the direction of Mr. Cady, is the best band Algona ever had and plays the finest music. Mr. Finnell, the music committee, is in correspondence with Harry Wilson, manager of the Iowa Juvenile Band, of Emrnetsburg, one of the largest and most celebrated musical organizations in the Northwest, xnd hopes to receive a favorable response. He is also in communication with the Burt Band, which is now a high-class band. The committee propose to provide the finest musical program for the Fourth that has ever been produced in old Kossuth. The'arrange- ments include vocal music under the direction of Mr. D. T. Smith,] who is recognized through,all this a successful musical director. Bapd concerts will be a feature of the afternoon and evening. .V '. • COMMITTEE TO DECIDE. * t • , ; Republican County Committee Will Meet Saturday and Settle upon the Time and Business of .the Convention^ B. W. Haggard, chairman of the republican county committee, has called ;he members of the committee to meet at his office in Algona on Saturday next, June 8, to settle the time of hold> ing the county convention and to .determine what business shall come b'e- iorethat convention. The state convention meets July 10, and the 'senatorial convention is soon to be called, and it seems to be the opinion of >some ;hatthe candidate for representative ought to be chosen at the first conven- iou. Mr. Haggard has wisely concluded that the full committee should shoulder the responsibility of deciding the question. The committee will meet,on Saturday at one o'clock.'; It is of course to be expected that the call will be issued nextlweek. The BEPUBLiCAN'sireport of the convention of Sept. 18, 1894, showed the following committeemen for the several precincts: Chairman, B. W. Haggard, Algona; Algona—First ward, E.

There was an immense turnout at the Burt picnic on Saturday. Burt tselfwas almost deserted, and from Algona, Bancroft, Wesley, and the vhole surrounding territory for fifteen miles the people came forth in squads and singly to enjoy a half holiday. The picnic ground was Ambrose A. Call's fine forty-acre grove of natural oak timber skirting the river a mile east of. Burt, and a finer location could not have been found. The speech by 3eo. C. Call was down for the , forenoon, but the entire program was postponed till^fternbon^pening, with music-iiy the ^urt/ ; 'Cornet vBand -and the Burt Mandolin ciub; Mr. Call was, ntrodu'ced by Maypr;Bfchards, and in opening he said he'was reminded, as he steppe'd off the cars at Burt, of the i me when he sold to Geo. E. Marble he first lot on the Burt townsite. At that time, fifteen years ago, there were only 6,000 people in the county, against 18,000 at present, and. while Kossuth had gained 12,000, the country at large had increased twenty millions. The speech treated briefly of immigration and educational problems and was well received. The foot. race, which came off after the speech, was very easily won by Jess \Staiey, whom we claim as an Algona' boy, though he ives out west of town. The boys' foot race was won by a Burt boy and Frank Tallman, of Bancroft, carried off the jonorsin the quarter-mile bicycle race without any trouble. The ball game was set for 3 o'clock but did not get started till nearly four. It was held just across the river north of the grove. While the contest was very one-sided in Algona's favor, it kept the attention of the crowd very well until the last inning. The bowery dance in the evening was not a howling success, as it began to rain about 10 o'clock. The people leave, and very soon the grove was deserted, with nothing left to tell of the annual band picnic but the trampled grass, the empty refreshment booth and .the barked trees, where the visitors had, in spite of warning, bitched their horses. On the whole it was a very successful and en* joyable day for the picnicers and every one seemed very Well satisfied with the entertainment afforded, The Burt band gave some excellent selections and,were ^ppjaudjid. to tfce ecbxi, jra ' tpbe'j.,~"' holiday a'nd we heartily no'pe'tijiatlt will be kept up as sucU for many a year, IN MEMORIAL HAW*, The N,$w Mwwy Rppms In H^H Are Open to she Saturday Night.

They have been fitted up at ail expense of about $140. The success of the enterprise is due in greatest measure to the faithful labors and good management of Col. T. F. Cooke, the president of the library association. .His excel-, ent judgment is shown in all the improvements made. ^ The association now holds a position of advantage, as the new quarters are iapacious beyond the requirements of ;he present store of books. There is now an inducement held out to those who may be in a position to make do- uitions of books, curios, statuary, etc., to enrich the collection and adorn the rooms. The association can now make a new departure, and establish the li- irary and reading room as • the great attraction pf Algona.
