The women turned out Monday en- huslastically—in fact with unexpected nd unanticipated zeal—and still the mblic library tax is not an established hing. The fact is the women turned ut on both sides. In the First ward it went about an even vote, in the Second hey voted solidly almost for it, in the Third they voted fully as' solidly against it, and in the Fourth at least a majority opposed it. There is no way f telling exactly bow the women voted and it is probable that a larger ,por- entage supported the public library ban of the men, but still there was pery far from a unanimous action on heir part. So far as the library is concerned it s in better shape than before. The people know more about the question and pledges of private support among ihose who opposed the tax alone insure a revenue equal to the tax for the com- ng year. In the mean time the benefits >f even such a library as we now have will become more apparent and a pubic library such as Algona desires is mly a matter of a short time waiting, There was but little contest over inything else in any ward, except in ^he Third, where Thomas Henderson and Warren Bates ran a close race for ihe council. A ticket was voted against the regular convention ticket >y some one who wrote names in the /allots, but it did not cut much figure. Che whole contest was library tax or no library tax, it was a lively contest and good natured as most political iquabbles are, and while hard times, ilgh taxes, and a host of misunderstandings kept the majority on the wrong side—if we admit that majorities are ever wrong—Algona emerges as placid and genial and go-ahead as ever, ready for a new issue, The First ward had a total vote of 216 of which 99 were cast by ladles. The Second ward cast 270 votes, 133 by ;he ladies. The Third ward cast 198, 29 by the ladies. The Fourth ward cast 263,124 by the ladies. In all 947 votes were cast, showing a big turn out 'or the town; and of these 435 were cast by the ladies, or nearly half. If ihey had been at all unanimous they could have easily carried any measure ,hey supported. In the First ward J, W. Wadsworth received 49 majority, in the Second Wm. K. Ferguson had no opposition, in the Third Thos, Henderson heal Warren Bates by five votes, in the Fourth Dr, Sayers had no opposition The complete returns are as follows: nd after getting the hose coupled topped the progress of the flames east. But the three buildings were entirely onsumed. The fire caught in the aundry, but how no one knows. It pread rapidly. The new laundry out- t Henry Slmpklns had just put in was ntirely destroyed and his loss is $1,700 overed we learn by a $1,500 insurance olicy in the Anchor company of Oreson. This.building and also that on the orner belonged to E. S. Salisbury and he loss of both falls on him as ho had o insurance. They were valued at i2,000. The Insurance policies had een cancelled on account of the laun- ry by the companies. The policies on tlrs. Bead's building had also been can- elled except one for $400. The build- ng was worth much more than this be- ides which her furniture and goods cere in it, and but little was saved. Whether the buildings will be rebuilt nd a new laundry put in is still un- ecided. Money. I have unlimited money to loan on ong or short time. B. W. HAGGARD.

A big, old-fashioned bee is planhed for Monday, May 20. It is to move the fence and stalls on the fair grounds and inclose the HeWly-bought blocks on the north. This Was one of the chief dr* fangements made by the directors at their regular meeting Saturday afternoon. About fifteen were present—ofle of the best meetings yet held—and plans were laid for the biggest fair ever seen in northwestern Iowa, OCT. 1, 2, 3 THE DATES. As the full moon conies during the first week in October the days for the fair were chosen then, It is also hoped that the rains will have exhausted themselves by that time, GRADE BREEDING STOCK OUT OFF, In the premium list, among other changes, the premiums heretofore offered for grade stallions and bulls were cut off. As the purpose of the fair is to encourage better stock it was thought absurd to offer prizes for grade sires. All other grades get premiums as usual. THE DOGS MUST GO. No dog will be admitted on the grounds. This rule will be strictly observed, AMUSEMENTS. The possession of a lot of bicycle medals made some races a necessity. A committee consisting of J. W. Wadsworth, O. A. Potter, and Harvey Ingham was appointed to rearrange the race programme and to provide other attractions. The sociaty voted to have Hendershot, the drummer boy of the Kappahannoch, at the fair, and a number of other novelties will be on hand. EXPERT JUDGES. The executive committee will secure two non-resident stock judges, neither of whom has been a judge before at our fairs. Nothing has conduced to successful fairs so much as this impartial judge system. ALL PREMIUMS IN FULL. All premiums offered this year will be paid in full in cash, as usual. IN GENERAL. The premium lists will be out June 1. The new grounds will be inclosed ready for the crowd. The fair will be as much bigger than ever before as the grounds tire, and a lot of new attractions will be secured. WOMEN VOTEBS AT WESLEY. They Carry a Proposition to Have Water Works and Wesley Is to Boom—Turned Out in Force. WESLEY, March 4.—Our municipal election was not without its usual amount of excitement notwithstanding there was but one ticket in the field which was headed by F. Hume for mayor. The question to bond the town for water works was where the opposition came, in which the women were entitled to vote, and the way some of the fair sex hustled around to get their sisters out was a caution. It is evident if the women were allowed the franchise they would use it and intelligently too. The old hobby that women would not vote if they had the chance was busted long ago, and we hope to •see the day that the women of the United States will be allowed to vote at any and all elections. The question to bond the town for $5,000 water works was carried, owing largely to the woman vote by over 40 majority, over which some of our citizens got very jubilant, and marched up and down the streets blowing tin horns, ringing bells, and rattling every imaginable thing that would make a noise, and by the number of ladies that helped to swell the crowd it would lead one to belieye that they can enjoy a little political fun as well as the men do. A. A. Donaldson of Brltt was taking in the sights of our town Monday. Joshua Shaffer of German township died last Friday with a complication of diseases. Mr. Shaffer came to Kossuth county about 12 years ago from Illinois and located on a farm 13 miles north of Wesley. As a citizen there are none better and he was highly respected by all that knew him. He was a very devoted Christian, formerly a member of the United Brethren church, but later of the Methodist church. He leaves a wife and son to mourn the loss of a de- voute husband and a kind father. The funeral took place Sunday the remains were interred in the Buffalo township cemetery, Mrs, Wittie, wife of Wm. Wittje, who lives on Mr, Sprague's farm four miles north of town, died Sunday morn' ing. They moved to this county from Grundy county about one year ago, Frank Haswell has sold bis dray line to Z.

Eastern immigration has begun to arrive. Mr. Palson of Bennett, III, arrived heve Monday with two car loaqs of immigrant movables. We are looking fop more to follow soon, Rev.
