A Motion was made for a new trial, but was overruled by Judge Thotaas. ¥he,sentence will be prottounced this week,'and the case undoubtedly be appealed to the su* pretne cotirti The evidence In the case disclosed that Grose and Harpy Dodge had tnet a foreigner, named Babler, at Jtenwlek, and had agreed to come out arid look at his horses, if they could stay all night. In the evening Grose told about land speculations he had made near Algona. Next morning he proposed to trade a mortgage for two horses. Babler refused and then Grose offered a property statement note signed by one Hills, Babler snid that if Grose gave his own note and the Hills note as collateral he would trade. The story is agreed to by all to this point. The divergence lies at the point of .what Grose represented. Babler says he said he owned property at Algona and Eagle Grove and that Hills' 320 acres of land was in Pocahontas county. Grose says he made no such representations. The land in fact is in Wisconsin and the statement notes given by g ii wH«6S6 tie n&bjSette'd to ean oter Somewhat when & small %oy flr tfct fcttifcfcei&wsafrtetf* stfesia & me spare to .

Kflftpp, whose afrest and return to Gertnatiia was t-e- jwrted last week. It turned out on investigation that the justice had held htm without evidence. The only itehi of evidence he sent down Was " B. p. Smith is 42 years of age and has knowfi Knabp three months," 'Squire Kay- mohd telegraphed for the Geritiaoia parties in interest to appear, but no one came, fie telegraphed again und the hearing was postponed till 4 o'clock, but no one came, ahd Knapp was released. The county pays tiie flddler, as Sheriff , Samson captured Knapp near Sioux City, There ought to be some Way of charging costs in such cases to somebody besides the public. , and m Has S&itie lafettnaJUoft toftt ih Which thft filtftf Got A foolish Ahest WWeh ftesult fed in Dismiss^. property Hills of a piece undoubtedly "with the other swindling notes of like kind on Tennessee land. The character of these swindling notes was not got before the jury, and the whole case rested on whether Crose had misled Babler as to his property. , The finding of the jury on the small amount of evidence presented shows that the blue sky men are going to get commissions to Anamosa and Fort Ur, L,«vcoy sues the County, Suit will be brought in the coming term of district court by Dr. Lacey of LuVerne to collect the doctor bills rejected by the county board last week. Geo. E. Clarke is his attorney, and Judge Cooke will assist County Attorney Raymond.. In view of this suit further newspaper discussion of the bills would be improper. The Milwaukee Company Lucky. At Fort Dodge last week the Milwaukee company had four big damtigo cases. The one at Whittemore was taken from the jury and also one from Ruthven. The Thompson case was disagreed on. In one case from Perry the company was beaten for $7,000. Madison just as fast as they are brought juries in this or neighboring before. . _. counties. It was admitted in "evidence that Grose had given back Babler's horses and paid him all he could claim. This and the grave doubt as to whether Crose had really told Babler what, he says, or had merely led him to believe that things were as he claimed without telling him so, would have released him at once in an ordinary case. ' But the jury all knew the inside character of the blue sky business and could' see through the Hills' property statement note as well as though it had been aired in court. The ,blue. sky business is doomed and bogus note peddlers may as well take warning. Worth More than $2 or''Worthless. The fiunous steer case over at Wesley last week ended in'a verdict of $2 against the city. The facts were, that Charley Bronson, our old Algona hay man, and Mr, Bacon had a steer that acted so crazy that they couldn't ship it with a load they had and so put' it in ashed to recover. It laid there 14 days and then G. W. Eddy ordered it shot by Marshal Cosgrove. The city claimed that the steer was not cared for, but the owners say that it had food and water and would have recovered. Attorneys E. V. Syvetting and J. A, Kennedy appeared for them and 'Squire Eaymond for the town. The jury heard any amount of testimony and then after two hours brought in a verdict of $2 for the plaintiffs. They have now appealed to the district court on the ground that if a steer in these days in Kossuth county is not worth more than $2 it is not worth anything. It will come on in two weeks here at Algona, A Wesley Dispute. Some Wesley correspondent sent the following item lately to the Marshalltown Republican: "Mrs, M, McDer* raotfc brought action against Rev. Father Eokart and five leading parish' oners for selling her husband beer at a dance at the home of Joe, Honeok, two miles south of town, about a month ago, Mrs. McDermott withdrew the action on the parties paying her $60." Mrs. MoDerraott publishes the following card in the Reporter! 1 In order that the innocent be not blamed I wish to make a correction in the above article.

Cloud l is home today from Nevada, where he has been attending court. , M,,r t Mrs. Crawford o'f Buchanan, Mich., is visiting her daughter, Mrs. S. J. O'Neil.'. Mr. and Mrs. R. B, Warren visited at Hugh Waterhouse's and other places in Minneapolis last week, Miss Dora Miller and Mrs. Fred Huke of Plum Creek are spending three weeks at Cedar Falls on a visit. Dr. Dorr came from DOS Moines yesterday to assist Dr. Morse in removing a tumor from Mrs, Bloor's daughter. C. B. Miller, Jr., and wife of Waterloo, and Dr. 0. B. Miller and wife of Cedar Falls were guests at-the Miller- Winkel wedding last week. A gentleman named Kirkhfttn, from Plpestone, Minn., got considerable e*< perienee In Algoaa last week. About Oct. 10 he wrote to Marshal Dailey that he had had a team and buggy stolen. Other correspondence followed ahd at the end Dailey telegraphed him that the property \v&s found and the thief located. Ktrkham answered that he would come at once* When he came, instead of going to Dailey, he went to Sheriff Samson and wanted to have the.thief, Otto Rlstau, a son of a well'to-do farmer near LuVerne, ur» rested. Sheriff Samson took in the Ristau who runs a restaurant here in town, but he proved to be a brother of the man wanted, In the talk it leaked out that Kirkhnm had worked through Datley and so Datley was consulted by the sheriff and,the right man caught. It also leaked out that Ktrkham expected to get some money out of Ris* tau's father, beat Dailey out of pay for his trouble, and also get a $200 bounty offered by the state of Minnesota. At least two hitches occurred in this pro- gramme. He got nothing from Ristau, and Duiley sued htm in Justice Clarke's court. A settlement was reached by which he turned over the team and outfit to Dailey, thq value of the whole being about $25, and had his expenses to pay here and back; besides. And now the officers who caught Ristau will go for .the bounty. It seems that Ri«trtu borrowed the team to go to LuVerne, Minn., but came south with them, He was brought to jail and yesterday the sheriff came from Pipestone and took him there for trial. A Foolish Arrest. An information was filed at Ledyard lately for one Dyzert, who had gone to Panorn. It was a partner in the hay business who filed it and who .wanted to prosecute when Sheriff Samson had brought him back. But when 'Squire Raymond got to know the facts he told the prosecutor that he had better have himself arrested. It seems he had sold more hay than the man he had arrested had. The case was dismissed and the costs assessed against the complainant, and a vigorous effort will be made to get them out of him. There certainly Ought to be some way to make somebody liable'for" expenses in this class of cases. , t \' /i? * You will be thankful -for your dinner if you go the Opera House Grocery.
