There is no tmbtthat many in "the west," in like Iowa and counties like . perhaps a majority, would for { ihe time gain financially by a cheaper jf dollar, hut it requires only a moment's ' consideration to discover that the benefits would not be universal, and that a very considerable part of a ' "Western community have as little to expect from a cheap dollar as an . eastern bond holder, or English specu- ( lator. Several classes of these anti- cheap dollar people eyen here on the frontier are easily enumerated. ' 1. All creditors, and they are a considerable class, would lose by it. All land owners who have sold on time, \ all farmers who have sold their farms, all farmers who have sold stock at ' auction and taken notes, all who have loaned money in small or large amounts, all merchants or others who .^Jhave accounts due them, in fact all who have fixed amounts of money coming to them would lose if the dollar should be cheapened, 2. All persons working for fixed salaries would lose. Their salaries f would not be raised in amount and each dollar would buy less. This , xwould include all school teachers, preachers, clerks, county officials, postmasters, bank officials, court * officers, etc. It would also include all ' hired help whose wages are fixed by , custom, such as hired girls, farm ' hands, day laborers, carpenters, 1>rick masons, etc. They would get no .higher wages by day, week, or month, -and their wages would represent less. 3. The list of losers would include all business institutions rendering service at a fixed compensation. Barbershops, drays, ten-cent deliveries, bus lines, etc., and last but not "least, newspapers. The newspaper could not raise its subscription price "and its 81.50, already too little, would represent less in the paper, ink, and type it goes to buy. The person who enumerates all of the people in the classes which would '"be injured by a cheaper dollar will discover that they form a very considerable part of the population in "the'west,"a sufficiently considerable part to warrant the " the west" in going very cautiously about changing the present standard of values. . But admitting that a cheaper ^dollar would prove as advantageous to timers, has retired from active ness. Milton Starr's brother at fiurt loses one finger by the bursting of his emory wheel. T, P.

Buckley was arrasted at Led* yard last week by Sheriff Hansen of Palo Alto county, and he is now in the Eraraetsburg bastile awaiting trial. Emmetsburg Democrat: Attorney J. W. Sullivan and Miss Essie Cordingley were married at Algona last Wednesday morning. Mr. Sullivan, is one of the leading attorneys of this section of Iowa and the bride is pronounced a charming lady. Gov. Jackson has appointed Capt. E. B. Soper of Emmetsburg to be one of the six commissioners to locate the position held by Iowa regiments in the memorable battle of Shiloh. • It is proposed to erect a marble slab at each end of the position held by an Iowa regiment. ' • , • Estherville Democrat: J. W. Sullivan, a brilliant young lawyer of Algona and brother of Pat Sullivan of this place, was married last week to Miss Essie Cordingley, also of Algona. The wedding was a brilliant affair and considered the most notable social event that has ever occurred in Algona. The Burt Monitor says of the rumor of a second bank by the Stough brothers: There is nothing in it. Forrest was in Burt one day last winter trying to sell the tail end of his stock of goods to a Jew who was then here, but he hasn't been here since, and V. H. has never been here that we know of, and nobody credits the rumor at all. Eagle Grove Times: Mr. A. L.

Following the plan adopted by the state superintendent, no personal assignments of topics will an- pear on the programme. This meeting wfll enable the teachers to keep before them for consideration any point for discussion afl long as they desire without being compelled to close the debate for Want of time. Bach teacher should have something to say on the following subjects: The art of questioning: the importance of keeping pupils together who are in the same class, and how It can be Hone ; what a child is expected to know at the end of his first school year; what a child should be taught before being allowed to study a higher reader; perplexities in teaching both grammar and arithmetic. » * * The Social Union club meets Friday following & predfdent established by the Fourth w&M ifi Alfdtft.

He carries a nice line of watches, rings, 'diamonds, silverware, etc. Mr. Hyde is a gentleman of affable manners, and we believe the public will find him a pleasant man to transact business with. Emmetsburg Tribune: Capt. Haggard of Algona came over Friday evening for the purpose of seeing Company K drill, The captivating captain failed to show up—he is excusable, however, as the bewitching smiles of the Emmetsburg belles were too much for the gallant soldier—he spent a pleasant evening however, Algona papers will please not copy."

Some interesting matters are to be discussed at the coming term of court which meets a week from Monday. In one or two cases new questions to this section are raised and both .sides will be contested with vigor. A RAILWAY FENCE CASE. The suit of Gotlieb Bohn against t,he Northwestern road for cattle killed because a snow fence blew down last fall and let them out, has a curious phase. It is asserted in addition to the rotten condition of the fence that in law it was not such a fence against stock as the statute contemplates on account of its speaking distance the following colloquy took place: A said to B, "Halloo! how are you?" Coming close up to him, he continued: "Say, do you know that there is beer in town 9 " "No, is that so?" said B. "You bet it v is," says A, "for I have just had some." "Won't you take some more?" asked B, and off they went arm in arm in quest of the cooling and soothing beverage. Those who were standing by and heard the colloquy looked after them in wonder and astonishment, and immediately the query went around as to where they were from, Just then a man came up and the query was put to him, and looking up be saw the two men as they disappeared around the '?

About 12 years ago Algona enjoyed her first high priced entertainment, Edward Remenyi, playing on the violin to an audience at 75 cents a ticket, It was in the court house and the great violinist stood on an improvised platform of planks with some oil lamp foot lights to cast a dim occasional gleam. That was be/ore the famous woman-on-the-wagon drop curtain and scenes had been put in. The entertainment was as memorable in its way as GJoriana, Remenyi, on the whole, getting a mpre enthusiastic reception. After leaving the west he went to New York and met with great ovations, and then sailed around the world. At one time he was reported drowned. Now he is back again, a greater player than ever, his famous old violin with him, and will be b Algona May 83, a week from next Wednesday. yhpae wno enjoy music by ft master, music that is * , this genius and his will all e out po to ula * AJJ <HCQe}Jen.$ prof TOfflme hjp been ftp. ranged fpp^hecoujBty editorial meeting to, liability to blow down, and that a wire fence would have stood. Geo. E. Clarke is bringing the suit. THE FRINK FAILURE. A new question is raised in this case. Carson Pirie & Go. of Chicago had a claim of $2,100 and did not hear of the failure until othercreditors had covered the stock with attachments. Now they ask that their goods may be given back to them as they were bought under false pretense, Sullivan & McMahon are for the plaintiffs, Cloud for the other creditors and Clarke & Cohenour and Sessions for Frink, A DIVORCE CASE, Hager vs. Hager, charge adultery, both parties at Ledyard, will be a sensational case if a defense is made. Ge"o, R. Cloud for the plaintiff, THE WESLEY SLANDER SUIT, Geo, Snyder is alleged to have made very uncomplimentary remarks about the character of one of Mrs. Lichteig's daughters. He js sued for $6,000 by Clarke & Cohenour and Bonar & Fellows, and is defended by J, C, Raymond, and the case is on for trial, A WESLEY WHISKEY CASE. Mrs, MoDermot's husband attended a picnic .where illegal drinks were being dispensed and as he became troublesome she begged and ordered Honig and Zurnack not to sell him any more. He abused her afterwards and she wants $1,000 of the defendants for disregarding her request. Swetting for Mrs. McDermot and Raymond for the defendants. TWO TRESPASS OASES. A. B. Flack is a'fter Boetoher for taking a team by force, fraud, etc., Boetcber says he had a chattel mort- age. Miljer of Buffalo Center and .aymond, attorneys, Marsh Stephens Col. Wilkins found Company F out in forde Saturday evehihg for inspection. tts ranks were fuller thatt ever before la its history, and it presented a martial appearance, There Were so many in line that it was difficult to maneuver in the court room, and that and the lack of drill on the part of a few of the boys made some of the marching a< little ragged, but otherwise the inspection was satisfactory. The arms and accoutrements Were found bright and clean and the uniforms as good as the Wear they have had would permit. The Colonel went through the latter and marked all that were not up to grade, and the state will furnish new uniforms. This will include practically all the pantaloons and fatigue coats of the company, and the boys will be out soon in bran new togs. Aside from Col. Cooke, Surgeon Morse, Sergeant Major Peek, ,and Hospital Steward Mathews, the present enrollment of the company is as follows: Captain, M. P. Haggard, first lieutenant, C. T. Chubb, second lieutenant, A. E. Dougherty; sergeants, W. E. Ward, G. L. Taylor, M. J. Walsh, C. E. Witham, corporals, M. P. Weaver, Jas. Randalh A. D. Hubbard, G. M. Bailey, Alf. Chaptn; privates, A. F. Dailey, E. W, Tennant, D. A. Archibald, A. W. Burbank, Chas. Barnhart, M. V. Chapin, Henry Carpenter, Roy Carpenter, Fred Cronan, E. L. Dalton, S. M. Ferris, W. J. Flanders, W. H. Gilbride, W. L.

Raymond, C. S. Reed, Will Richardson, L. K. Shadle, J. O. Stephenson, L. T. Stacy, E. C. Tuttle, Chas. Taylor, W. H. Riley, E. S. Robison, E. T. Burbank, Fred Jones. The impression is that this summer's encampment will be by, brigages, and that all the companies in the north half of the state will meet together at some central point. It is not thought likely that there will be an inter-state rifle contest this season. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. >. Dr. Morse is in Des Moines attending a medical meeting. C. B. Matson spent Sunday at Iowa City with S. U. 1 friends. Sheriff Samson went to Des Moines last week on a business trip. Mrs. Lizzie B. Read is at 'home after a visit in Des Moines .of some days. Aug.

The bicycle is taking the coufatry. Algona has about 60 now and repre* senfatiyes of all classes are numbered among the devotees to this machine of amusement or exercise or hard work, whichever you call it. Dr. Garfield is the Nestor of the party and his hale and hearty old age is perhaps what is encouraging the movement. Rev, SteVetts is becoming proficient as a wheelman, and is gaining a .good healthy color in consequence, 0. M, Doxsee has mastered it with a baby seat attachment, Guy Scott, without his hands, has become an expert rider, Guy L. Taylor has covered over 200 miles of country roads with his in business this spring, F. H. Vesper, R. A. Palmer, and dozens of others use them' regularly in their daily travel. The ladies have not. taken to the wheel so much in Algona as in many towns, but a few have them. Misses Myrtle Nicoulin, Orma Vesper, Irma D. Clarke, Edmonds, Henderson and Hamilton have wheels, but none of them have yet appeared in the new styled bicycle costume,) which is BO much discussed elsewhere. A hastily prepared list shows the following owners of machines: O. B. Durdall, Earl Tennant, A If. Chapin, Jo. Steil, Dave Miller, M. P. Weaver, Jas. Randall, Guy Scott, 0. E.

Mrs. Annie Randall and baby are over from Mason City visiting at Frank Nicoulin's. The baby when it can talk will call Frank "grandpa," and. is the first grandchild for him and Mrs, Nicoulin.

A lot of Britt boys were here Sunday and are anxious for the meeting. We are informed that there are some sprinters among the Algona riders and that some fast riding is likely to be exhibited this fall. A BEAffOH BOARD OF TRADE Algona Speculators TV1J1 Now Have a Chance to Guess on the Chicago Markets. ( A new business office was opened today over Gilmore's store to afford the guessers on Chicago prices a chance to invest. Will Lacy is manager and will receive six market reports a day, the opening and closing pnd four between. Aside from the matter of' allowing those who desire to speculate a chance at the latest quotations, he will send the reports by postal card to all the neighboring towns on each train out, thereby giving the very latest quotations to all our neighbors. As a means of giving the county the best market reports his office will be a valuable institution. Whether speculating on them will be of profit is a matter the speculator will doubtless settle for himself. , THE OFFICIAL EEOOKD, Work Done by the City Council-One Regular and One Special. Readers who go through the official proceedings of the city as published below will discover that the minutes of the preceding special meeting, after being corrected, were not approved! Exactly what condition affairs are left in by such a vote is a good problem for parliamentarians. It would look as though the business done at that meeting lacked something • to make it official. ^ THE ADJOTONED MEETING, The city council met in adjourned regular session, Tuesday evening, April 80 pursuant to adjournment, Mayor Haggard in the chair.
