fhef tJot fdgfetfof l/ast Week, ahd Iti ififtysThejrfiid&tdtof Business* it Was the fteguia* Septehibet Session, *f< is & eohipitte of Theit Work. The county board met last Monday atid held a two days 1 session, devoted mainly to hills and roads, and adjourned to meet again Wednesday, Oct. 2. The most important item was the submit" ting of the jail tax to the county again this falii The proposition is "shall $8,000 be levied by special tax to be fraised by a li mill levy in 1896?" The clerk of the board is ordered to have the legal notices published, and also a notice in every paper in the county so that no one can escape knowing what is proposed. The present jail is a joke as in fact all such jails are in this part of the state. The criminal classes have got too cute for the old'fashioned court house basement jails, and all over this section prisoners are being taken at great expense to Mason City for safe keeping. A good jail cannot be built for less than $8,000. THE 1895 TAX LEVY. The board levied the taxes for 1895 in the county as follows: State 2i mills, poor 1, insane 6-10, road 1, county 3i, bridge 3, school 1, pole tax 60 cents, male dog 60 cents, female dog $1.

Htisftt's 6f the Cfise. f wd ^eeks ago Tflto UPPER Dfis MoiNfis published the details of an arrest in Algonft which v^ill ittVolve the city in a law stilt. It gave the story df tbe city offteifcls ftt the time and there is bo need of repeating it in reply to the following story told hy the Eltnore Bye of Mr, Susef*s side of the case. The facts will doubtless all come out iti court. The Eye says! Sotae Weeks ago Adam Huser, Who has been a resident of Elmore for over a year, formerly in the employ of Bursell & Klinefolter, but now with the Etmofe Mill company, received a message to go to Sac City, lowX his sister being dangerously ill. Being told here of an early morning train on the Milwaukee from Algona, he .resolved to make that distance on his wheel. Starting from here at 0 o'clock in the evening he arrived at Aigona about 3 o'clock in the morning^ as was ascertained when he stood his bicycle up against a pile of lumber and walked up in front of a jewelry store to consult his watch; there being a bright light inside and the only one near where he happened to alight from the wheel. While there setting his watch by the regulator the night watchman came up. Mr. Huser advanced and asked the night watch to direct him to the Milwaukee depot. On being asked what -he wanted there said that he wanted to take the early morning train, and was informed that there was no such a train. The watchman told Adam that he had a place where he could stay and took him to a livery barn and fixed up a bed there. Soon the night watch returned with a man, who proved to be the marshal, and said they had prepared another place for him. Adam thought it was a queer performance,. but did not protest until he saw he had been lured to the town lock-up. Then asked them what was the meaning of such demonstrations; gave them his name, where he was from and where he had started to go. They finally said that he was suspected for stealing the bicycle he had with him. Adam gave references and told them to telegraph, at his own expense, Myron Bursell at Bancroft or the night operator, Bobt. Arnold at Elmore, who would identify him and the wheel, as he did not want to be delayed on his journey. The "authorities" would not listen to that, however, and persisted in having him stay in the jail. Adam told them that ho would not sleep in such a dirty bed, and was gently informed that he did. not have to sleep in that bed if he didn't want to, when the door was locked and Adam found himself a prisoner. About 6 o'clock the deputy sheriff appeared on the scene and took a look at the prison bird. Adam told him that he had been riding nearly all night, was hungry and wanted some breakfast. The officer of the law told him that he could not give him any breakfast and went away, returning .about 9 o'clock with the marshal when the captor was escorted before the mayor. After answering their questions Adam again told them that he had been riding all night, was hungry and wanted some breakfast. Was told that he could get breakfast if he had any money, which he did, and with a body guard was taken to a restaurant. In the mean time the mayor telephoned to Myron Bursell at Bancroft in regard to Adam Huser and his bicycle, who identified him as being a man in the employ of the Elmore Mill company, and owned a bicycle. They also called the operator at Elmore, not to identify Adam Huser but asked if a bicycle had been stolen up in this neck 'o the woods. On being answered ih the negative concluded that the young man was all right, and the mayor told him tha,t if he would pay the marshal a dollar they would release him; adding that they had to pay their marshal for his services. Adam not wishing to be delayed any longer complied with their request, No trial had been given. Being thus delayed Mr. Huser did not go to Sao City, but returrjed to Elmore, This is Adam's story, in the main, in the matter and all who know him will bank on its being the TRUTH in big letters. Adam is not one one of these fellows who always tell of their troubles and misfortunes to solicit sympathy from their friends, but our attention was called to this affair by an article in last week's issue 'of the Algona UPPER Pps MOINES giving an • account of Lawyer Graham of Plue Earth City being at Algona and looking up the case w,ith the intention of bringing a damage suit against the city, We understand the Knights of Pythias of Blue Earth City are behind the suit, which will be for $3,000, For Sale, I have for sale one ne,w 7-room house; one full-blood Jersey CQW; two grade short-horn covve, 85t8 C.
