, ALWll^A, IOWA, BY MILTON STARR. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: One Year, in Advance. $1-50 Six Months... Three Months. The new cigaiette law makes the sale of cigarettes a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of uot less than $15 nor more than $50 for the first offense, and not less than $100 nor more than $500 for each subsequent offense. Imprisonment in the county jail is provided in case fines and costs are not paid. Holmes, the multi-murderer, who is to be hanged next month, has made a full confession of his crimes, covering twenty-seven murders. In the case of this man Ingersoll's proposition that ignorance is the only darkness, does not seem to be exemplified. Holmes is a man of very fine education and mental development. But he was not all head and brains. DOINGS OF COCNTY BOARD. Offlciar feecord of the April Meeting—Relief Contention Settled. Many Road Matters Disposed of and Committees Appointed—The Bills Allowed. Dickinson county is agitated over the circulation of a consent petition looking to the introduction of mulctsaloons. From the Beacon it is learned that "the movement fanned into llame the smouldering prohibition sentiments of a large class of good people who are positive that prohibition can be made to prohibit and have set themselves to work to accomplish that end." It is given out that Judge Lot Thomas will be a candidate for renom- ination for a third term this year. He has served eight years and is regarded as a clear headed, capable and just judge. The Pocahontas Record says the convention will probably be held in Spirit Lake late in June. The same paper says it has been intimated that Humboldt, Clay, Emmet and Palo Alto have candidates grooming. AUDITOR'S OFFICE, April 6, 1896.— At 1:30 p. m. board met in regular session with following members present, Chubb, Barton, Smith, Burton and Hollenbeclc. Minutes of last meeting were read and approved as read . Moved and seconded that the road petitioned for by William Kerr be laid as petitioned for. Carried. Resolved, That the time for paying- damages on the road petitioned for by Frank Nicoulm on the west line of the southwest quarter 21-90-28 be extended until 30 days after the final termination of the case of Nicoulin vs. Schick, now in the district court of Kossuth county. Adopted. Resolved. That the tax of George Turner on lot eight, block eight, Algona, Iowa, and personal tax, be abated for the year 1895, on account of inability to pay. Adopted. Resolved, That all delinquent taxes jirlor to the taxes of 1893 be declared unavailable. Adopted. Resolved. That the auditor be instructed to request the President of the Woman's Relief Corps to return the money drawn from the auditor and that the same be turned over to The past few weeks have developed that the McKinley boom is not a local affair. Enthusiasm for the Ohio man has broken out in controlling power in states as widely separated as New Jersey and Oregon. McKinleyism is, in fact, continental. Those who have endeavored to cry it down and to repress it have been worsted so of ten that their frame of mind is desparate, and their •experience prepares them to believe that the most sanguine expectations of the McKinley men may come true, and their hero be nominated by acclamation. committee appointed by the board of supervisors to assist in looking after the county poor. And that Mrs. Lantry and Mrs. Setchell be appointed such committee. Adopted. Resolved, That the auditor continue to lease the court house hall for entertainments at $10 per night and janitor's fees. Said amount to be turned over to Mrs. Lantry and Mrs. Setchell who are hereby appointed the county relief committee. Adopted. Resolved, That the sum of $100 be appropriated to the County Agricultural Society, when a deed from the S. G. A. Reed heirs for six rods of land off the west end of lot seven is presented to the County Auditor, and It was a righteous act that the legislature performed in making restitution to ex-auditor Brown of the money, or a part of it, which he was obliged to spend in defending himself against an unjust charge. Brown was ejected from the office to which the people had elected him, under charges affecting his official integrity, not one of which could be proven before ths senate sitting as a court of impeachment. In that trial it was proven that Brown was the victim of a conspiracy. Whether the immediate agents were cognizant of that conspiracy is a question which it is needless to go into, but the opinion of the people is, no doubt that it was Brown's integrity, and his faithfulness in the administration of his office, which caused his troubles, and not any wrong doing. The board, after putting the matter off for three mouths, refused by a vote of three to two to give the north half of the county an official paper, the two members from that end voting for and the three in the south end voting against. It has been only since the last census that the board could legally make a third official paper, our population having previously been insufficient The power now exists, and the Bancroft Register modestly put forward its claim to recognition. As the REPUBLICAN regards this matter, it is not the increase of population which calls for a third official paper so much as our double territory, and the consequent distribution of local newspaper patronage. The recognition asked for will probably not be many years delayed, as it will be demanded and cannot reasonably be denied. The county can much better afford to pay the small claim of a third paper rather than see a sectional strife in the board. THE PAUPER SOLDIER. (Suggested by a Recent Happening.) They carried the man to a soldier's rest, The drum was muilied, theiifesang low; A blade of battle was on his breast. A tattered banner that knew the foe. There sprang, froom the roof of his earthy tent, \ peal of thunder and Hash of liauie; With glory's plaudits the air was rent; (lie died in the po jrhouse, all the same.) A chaplain stood by the eollin side, And preached a story of long ago; This-frozen visago would Hush with pride, If j ust but the dead could hear and know! Again with young and vigorous hand, He climbed the ladder of early lame, And pawned a life for his native land, (Aud died in a poorhouso, all the same.) O proud Columbia! well 'tis said, If ever an insult you may meet, A million heroes, victory led, Will lay their lives at your very fe'it! But strip the Hags from the shining domes, And' bow your beautiful head u shame, If wen who fought for the palace-homes Must die in a all the same! —WILL OARLETON in Every Where for April. that whatever is left after paying for said land shall be applied on improving the highway on the east and west sides of the fair grounds.

Those who may wish to do business in the city can have four and one-half hours in which to do it, and then return home at a reasonable hour. With three trains each way daily between Elmore and Des Moines, the people along the line of the Northwestern will have nothing to ask for unless it is the money to pay for their rides. . . Agent Yesper has had no official information in regard to this impprtant addition to the roads facilities, but the new schedule to go into effect Sunday will probably reach him by Friday. The news comes through the Des Moines papers. The school board last week decided to submit to the voters of the independent district the question of issuing bonds on which to raise money to build a new school house in the third ward. The matter has been for some time un- AJ der advisement, and the unexpected ! increase of the attendance at the beginning of the spring term may have had t something to do in compelling immediate action. There are already fully 100 more pupils in the main school house than it can properly accommodate. One room had nearly 100 last week, and each had upwards of 50. The room in the basement is perhaps as good as any that can be made there, but it is not suitable, and the health of the pupils is endangered by their stay in it. The depot school has for a long time been unfit for use. These considerations have pressed upon the board the necessity for action, and' the 'directors are unanimous for a new building* The question will be submitted on Monday, May 4. If .the bond propo- ^ sition carries the house can be built, probably, and ready for occupancy by the opening of the fall term. It is proposed to build of brick, two stories high, with four rooms, and with all necessary hall room and closets. It is expected that with the grounds, the necessary cost will be in the neighborhood of $7,000, and that is the amount asked for. The location will be a matter for consideration as soon as the bonds are voted, in case they carry, but the matter has not yet been brought up. The board have employed a new teacher, Miss Myrtie Putsch. She has been given the basement room and will have a part of Miss Cramer's pupils. She began work Monday morning. V Miss Putsch taught a country school last winter and Is not without experience, "Walker Bros, now have a full line of Chase and Sanborn's tea as well as their coffees.
