Way, chairman of the state highway commission, writes to correct a general misunderstanding, concerning operations now in progress to build: a new road e'Ji^t from the end of Wesley's main street. . >. • . An Impression had gat about that the commission contemplated a new road to Hutchins paralleling the present No. 18 paving one-half mile north. This was considered unnec- ssary, and there has been much criticism of the commission. Mr. Way writes'that this impression .is erroneous. The object is merely to connect Wesley with road from the south, No. 60, which is how being improved, with No. 18 at Wesley. This road follows the Hancock- Kossuth county line one mile east of Wesley. • Travelers from the south on No. 60 bound east or west will come into Wesley from the east and pursue their way on No. 18. Travelers east or west who want to turn south will go east from Wes- ey on the new' connecting road and thence turn south on No. 60. Mr. Way writes: "Evidently it is Because of this one mile of construction to connect No. 60 with No. 18 at Wesley that misunderstanding las arisen. There is no plan to tend the road farther east of Wes- ;ey paralleling NO. 18." Mr. Way added that he desired to make no formal reply to 'newspaper criticisms which have appeared, .but that the facts in his letter might be used. Road officials here and Wesleyans seem to have been as much confused at the start of the Wesley operations as the newspapers. Inquiry . was made before publication, but no one seemed to know what was in the vind unless it were an extension of No. 18 to Hutchins merely .to elim- nate two railroad crossings. Mr. Way's 'letter exonerates the jommission and removes suspicion if unnecessary construction which md become widespread. NEARLY AN INCH OF SNOW SUNDAY SETS NEW RECORD Three quarters of an inch of snow fell Sunday night, in one of the ear- iest snowfalls ever recorded in this territory. It amounted to only .05 nches of rainfall, and it melted be:ore noon. Freezing ' temperatures have been recorded four times since- Dctober 1. The lowest temperature, 30 degrees, was recorded Monday morning. Cold weather and strong vinds have stripped leaves from many trees, spoiling their colorful uUumn color schemes.

The first ballot, taken shortly after the national:conventions .had made their nominations gave Roosevelt 19; Hoover, 3; and Norman S. Foster, socialist, 1.' Last Thuraday Roosevelt received 14 votes; Hoover 13. Whether the shift was due to change in politics, or to humorous voting in the first straw election is undetermined. In a straw vote on U. S. senator last Thursday Murphy, democratic candidate, received 16; 'Field, 6; Brobkhart, 2; and three-votes were cast for members of the\:lub. NEW DUTTON-LEFFERT BUILDING UNDER WAY Work was begun a week ago on they Dut/ton & Leffert new building on grounds owned by the C. '& N. W. railroad at a poilt? directly south-of the freight depot.

The railroad bed ' will have to be "built up six inches to facilitate unloading. The lower >floor will house the office, the retail office, a space for cars, and miscellaneous warehouse supplies. The contractors are McMurray Bros., and the building is to be finished by December 1. Hollow brick-tile will be used for the sidewalls of the first floor, while a framework with metal sheeting will be used on the upper part. Ground was-excavated last week to a foot in depth at the front end on Phillips street and to more than six feet at the rear, near the unloading platforms, .Laying of hollow tile began several days ago 'and is progressing rapidly. The first floor will be finished In concrete. DRHNKS LOSES CAR LICENSE; GIVEN 90 DAYS IN JAIL Jos.

Pool Being Brained. Part of the water In the swimming pool was drained some time ago, but that in the deepest part remains. Workmen were adjusting valves and draining parts of the filtration tanks in the bathhouse Sunday, preparatory to freezing weather. The remaining water in the pool will probably be- drained within a few days.
