The committee appointed by the council to look up the city hall matter have employed T. H. Conner to draft a plan. This will be presented to the committee in a day or two, and the committee will present their report to the council Saturday night. We shall probably have a new city hall this fall. Tuesday evening, Nov. 26, is set apart at the Call for Walker Whiteside, who will appear in Hamlet. Of this young tragedian Elwyn Barren, the accomplished dramatic critic, says: "Walker Whiteside, note it, my masters, is the only young American actor with the prophecy of tragic success written on hjs brow." ( , Prof. Setley, the instructor in penmanship at the Normal, is an artist with his pen. Among his works on exhibition at the Normal school building is a pen drawing of the Highland Park Normal School building at DesMoines. It is as good a likeness as a photograph and is as fine a piece of pen drawing as was ever seen in Algona. The Buffalo Center Tribune says of one of our capable young, educatois: "Prof. Sifert and his able'assistants are building up a school system here of which we may all feel proud, and The Tribune is glad to do what it can in recognizing their efforts and assisting in the creation of a lively interest in the schools and their welfare." Bey. W, E. Davidson has sent in his resignation of tbe pastorate of the Congregational church, to take effect the first) of January, and the ohurch is called to meet this afternoon to take action in tbe premises, He is now in Indiana, and the reason given for bis action is that be will not be able to resume preaching as early a s be had hoped, The newest organization is the Tuesday Olub,.made up of about thirty ladies and gentlem:en, meet'once a fortnight on Tuesday evenings for tbe discussion of current events and for social enjoyment.

He is a very able speaker and any who want to listen to oratory should attend.' . But with John Mahin, the strongest 1 prohibitionist in tho state, supporting the republican ticket and the prohibition candidate for governor opposing resubmission, as we understand that he does, it looks like a dead waste of $50 every time St. John makes a speech in Iowa. W. A. Chipman, of Portland township, called on the REPUBLICAN" Saturday. He says he has rented -his farm .to his brother-in-law, Bufus Davison, of Clark county lincl will move to Burt. He is going to have a sale at his place on Wednesday, Oct. 30, when he will dispose of a large lot of high-grade cattle, five head of horses and a great variety 9f farm machiuery. He says he is going to give a free lunch at noon, and no doubt everybody will be handsomely treated. • , Geo. Blackford shot a big eagle last Thursday morning, the proud bird of freedom soaring too near the Blackford mansion. It was pronounced a bald eagle by some and a golden eagle by others, though its head "was neither bald nor golden in color. All agreed that it was an eagle, and careful meas- urment showed seven feet from tip to tip of its wings. There was a. general desire that it be stuffed and mounted, .but nobody could furnish the address of a taxidermist. It was one of the finest specimens ever secured in this neighborhood. ^Union township has adopted uniform text books and the exchange of the old for the new will be made by Myron Schenck at his. residence next Monday. The new books are supplied under contract by the Werner publishing company, and .an even exchange ,will be made, the old books being received as full payment for the new opes" which'will take their place. If an' advanced book is desired only the difference between the new books will b!e charged. With this stipulation the cha'nge to a ijew series of text books is Stripped of its terrors. ;c The friends of Bev. G. II. Kennedy, the retiring M.E. pastor, will be glad to .Jearn that he meets a pleasant reception and makes a good impression in Spencer. The News says: "Bev. G,,H. Kennedy, the M. E, mininister -recently appointed to Spencer, arrived Saturday evening, and on Sunday morning preached a very acceptable sermon, to a full house. Mr. Kennedy is a young roan of good presence and "pleasing address. His Sunday morning sermon was a plain, practical once, •and delivered in a manner calculated 'to impress the audience with the intense earnestness and sincerity of the speaker. ''While the democratic caddidate for governor had less than 100 listeners at 'Emmetsburg, Col. Henderson drew an ,an'audience in Algona Thursday night which packed the floor and galleries of ,tbe court house. The people are not running after democratic orators this year. This was Col. Henderson's first speech in Algona, and a fine one it •was,. lie pictured democratic legislation, democratic administration an4 democratic times and asked: "How do you like it?" It was a "corker," Tbe excellent music was sung by D. T, ~ •', Geo. Hamilton, Fred Fu!le|an<J> MENTION, Mrs. ££. F. Watson is home from her visit ifl Ohio. Mrs. Dixson, with her children, has gone to Des Moines, which will be her permanent residence. Mrs. Dixson is held in the highest respect by all Algona people. Dr. Kenefick spent Sunday at Bel- tnond. Miss Mann, of Irvington, will leave for California to spend the winter at the conclusion of the fall term of school. Mr. and Mrs. G. J. Adams left for St. Edwards, Nebraska, yesterday morning, going over the Milwaukee road. They go for the parpose of visiting their sons, who are in successful business in our neighbor state. They will be absent some three weeks. The editor's family enjoyed a visit over Sunday from Win. M. Starr, of Maxwell, Iowa, who was on his way to Emmetsburg to be present at a family reunion to take place the first of the week. He was an orderly in the Thirty-first Iowa and is a brother of the editor of this paper. T. H. Conner. E. H. Clarke. Edwin Blackford and E. C. Tuttle attended the Odd Fellows grand lodge atMarsh- alltown last week. The session was one of the most successful ever held, and the attendance and reports indicate that the order in Iowa is in a very prosperous condition. A party of about thirty young people were entertained last Thursday evening by Dr. and Mrs. L. A. Sheetz, in honor of Bert Matthews, who went to Soeucer yesterday. Wilfrid and Jessamine Jones gave a party for Mr. Matthews Saturday evening. His departure will bo generally regretted by Algona young people. BRIEF LOCAL MENTION. Au error in the RKPUBLICAH'S reference last week to the Boston Block needs to be corrected. Tho two middle fronts belong to Ambrose A. Call. He has owned one of the lots on which this part of tho block stands for some time, and the adjoining one ho bought of Lewis H. Smith, Mr. Call chose tho brick and tho architectural style, and proposed naming his two fronts tho Boston Block. When Mr. Chrischilles and Mr. Purvis learned of -Ids plans they decided to make their fronts uniform with Mr. Call's in stylo and material, and so we have the happy effect of the completed structure, one of the handsomest in the city. It has been settled for a long timo that Mr. Brownell is to have Mr. Call's east front for his shoo store, but who is to occupy..the other front is as yet unsettled. James Chapin was down from. Delevan, Minnesota, over Sunday, returning to business the first of the week with his wife, who had been visiting her parents and friends here for several Weeks. Mrs. Rachie S tough returned home to Minneapolis, Monday, making her visit short on account of the sickness of her six-months-old boy. A. D, Clarke was appointed a delegate to the deep waterways convention to open to-day at Vicksburg, but business obligations kept him at home. #. F.^rigjit.fatted to^end t bi],Js.ft>r .the, St. John speech at Algona, and so it will* not be very well advertised. This meeting will be tonight at the Court House. The Normal School term closes in two weeks. The prospects are flattering for a good attendance next term. The Algoua grain market shows the following quotations this week: Wheat 4Sc, oats 12c, corn 15, barley 21c. flax 70c. Somewhat depressed. The city council meets in regular session Saturday night. • Yesterday was moving day with F. L. McComb, .He now occupies his recent purchase,, the Moft'att residence. About fifty telephones have been installed in Algoua's business places and residences, and connected with the central office, and when the switchboard comes our telephone system will be ready for operation. Col. Thos. F. Cooke and wife arrived home from Europe this morning. S. H. Pettibone is home from his visit in the east. The ladies of tho M. E. church will give a supper at the homo of E.-J.'i Gilmore on Thursday of this week, commencing at half past five, A cordial invitation is extended to all, Dr. S, W. Gray, who will spend one week with our jeweler, E. G, Bowyer, from Tuesday, Oct. 29,1895, has a reputation as master of Optics, extending over 30 years, No ouo understands the eye and its troubles better than he, Consultation free, AiCONA TAKES THE FACTORY' Her Wide Awake Businfc&S Signified their Readi ness to Meet Every demand. The $20,000 Stock Quickly Subscribed,. and the Shoe Factoty Will be Taken *in If What We Want. The proposition to tbe business men of Algona noted last week, to take $20, 000 stock in a shoe factory to be located in their midst has been met with an emphaiic affirmative response. A meeting at the court house Friday evening to consider the proposition was well attended, and the sentiment expressed was unanimous. It was resolved as the sense of the meeting that the proposition made be accepted, and that the committee of the commercial exchange, consisting o£ A. A. Call, of the First National Bank, W. II. Ingham of the Kossuth County State Bank, A. D. Clarke of the Algeria State Bank, Geo. C. Call, E. J. Gilmore and J. W. Uincl'.on, w;iq 'nsf'-n^- cd to secure the si;b,k-i ;pii'.:ii. •••• This part of the business was u» easy matter. Each of the three banks promptly subscribed $4,0^ n M '~ '-- 0 Call estate took $1,000, and $500 subscriptions- brought the amount up to 815,000, and the balance was easy to get. The factory which is offered has-' been in successful operation in a large city for the past fourteen years, employing several hundred men. The- owner proposes the erection of a three- story brick building, 50x300 feet, and the employment of 200 to 300 men in?, the manufacture of all lines of shoes. The conditions of the subscription afford full protection to our business men, as no assessment is payable until a committee representing the stockholders find the enterprise to be in all respects what it has been represented. Should the report of this committee be what is expected immediate ^steps • wttl;be taken and the enterprise will speedily materialize. If not, Algona is ready and waiting for something as good or better. It is easy to see that the business men of Algona are alive and that they do not. propose to allow anything to stand in the way ot" the upbuilding of the city. The location proposed for tbe factory- is somewhere accessible by .a Y to the Milwaukee and Northwestern tracks. The railroad facilities offered by, Algona, located, as she is at the junction of the two great lines of the west, is- one of-the favorable conditions whicbA gives the.first eaU'oiUhe fac- i tory. i i%^^^ax^i«-i l rf^» W i(»* i ^% 0 «» w j l j«, w ^ The subscription list'"atr v the conclus-" ion of the committee's work last night, showed $22,800 of stock taken, the names and amounts being: First National Bank..". .§4000>Algona State Bank.., 4000 Kossutli Co.
