Petitions In Charge That He Voted Republican. Removel ot D. H. Goeders as member of the state fish and game commission was asked in petitions filed Friday with the state executive council. Consideration of the petitions took place at Des Moines yesterday, and Mr. Goeders was in attendance. The hearing was postponed ten days. Daily papers have reported that one petition was from Kossuth county but no local organization has knowledge of any such petition. The basis of opposition to Mr. Goeders Is wholly political and has no reference to his conduct as a member of: the commission. The entire basis' for the action. Is a claim that Mr. Goeders has voted in republican primaries while holding a post on the commission as Dope •fiends and hop-heads were numerous in Algona last Thursday night. Extra precautions were taken by the hospitals and doctors to prevent theft of dope. Most "dopes" are harmless except when prevented from getting supplies; then they become dangerous. They have only one desire, and that is the relief that comes from "shots." Ex-Soldier Throws Fit. iRecently an ex-soldier "on the i comfortable.

The law creating the commission specifies that not more than three of the five members shall be of the same political party. Governor Dart W. Turner, appointing the first commission, named Mr. Goeders as one of the democratic members. Since that time, through two recent appointments by Governor C. L. Herring, the commission makeup has changed to three democrats and two. republicans. According to local ' unofficial rumors the move to oust Mr. Goeders and two other members of the commission arises from the fact that they oppose putting the corn- bum" threw a fit at Whittemore. He was brought to Algona, and was turned over to County Engineer H. M. Smith, who has charge of the distribution of soldiers' relief funds. The man was in pitiful condition, almost paralyzed from lack of dope. He was taken to a doctor, administered a "shot" himself, and within five minutes was an entirely different person. Algona Is rated among bums.as a pretty good town in which to secure meals. Panhandlers ' ant "gimme a dime" beggars line th< streets every morning, seek "the price of a cup of cawifee" from pas sersby, and enter business houses Occasionally there Is an insolen bolshevik, but as a rule most o le men bear a hang-dog .appear- nce. The practiced bum appeals for oins on the main street, then goes o homes and begs meals. In this way he 'secures money for booze or oipe, and gets his eats too. Busi- iess men who have contributed money have 4ater found the objects if their charity buying ibay rum or adulterated preparations contain- ng alcohol.

In Iowa the slaughter was terrific, and among the slain was G. A.

Whether any of the places will be filled with deserving democrats has not been learned here. . . wires and tree limbs were broken down. At the John Thul farm 14 | apple trees were blown down, most of them torn out by the roots. More than 20 maples and other trees were also torn out or broken down in the grove at the same farm. Several silos of wood construction were wrecked, among them Matt Ziemet's, Theodore Wagner's, Oscar Dale's, and Halsrud's. The steel wheel on the Peter Er- nelding windmill was blown down and one-on the C. Olson farm was bent dqujble. A lot-of corn was .broken off,, and -hail splintered it, but it is thought by .most farmers that it will come out all right. Corn that was bent over will straighten, though it cannot toe cultivated again, because toy the time it straightens up it^wlll be too high. 2 BOLD PONY THIEVES NABBED HERE: 1 JAILED Hitchhiker in DesertThumbs the Morrisons It's a small world, after all.

Two 10-Innlng Games. Ball fans had a big day, with two -out of three games going extra Innings. The opening game between the Junior league teams of Burt and Renwick was won by Burt in the tenth inning. The score had been tied 4-4 for several innings, but a run pushed over In the tenth gave -the game to Burt.. Renwick and Burt were to meet again yesterday to determine the league district championship. Burt is now Kossuth champion, and JRen- wick won.the championship of Wini, Pocahontas; and Huniboldt Believe It Or Not, <Tu?as Two Below, Friday At the Algona Ice Cream and Candy Factory Friday, a perspiring reporter suffering under 100 degrees In the shhde was invited to step Into the cooler. He stepped, gasped, then shivered as he Inspected a thermometer which registered two degrees below zero. Stepping Into the room was like a plunge Into Ice cold water. There was even a gasp for breath. Funny little shivers ran over bare arms and up and down the backbone. Stepping out again was Just as bad. The knees felt like wet, greasy dish rags, and outraged skin pores reversed Into high In a vain effort to cool the body. Manager Chas. H. Taylor, apparently used to the sudden changes, went around his business of opening and closing valves without hesitating. The factory lost week made more than 1200 gallons of cream in anticipation of a big demand on the Fourth. The usual run during the hot weather of the past three weeks has been 1000 gallons a day. The Ice plant, manufacturing ice from city water, Is worked 24' hours a day to keep up with the demand while the. hot wave is on. DROUGHT HERE IS LIFTED BY HEAVY RAINS Comes Too Late For Oats But Corn is Now Safe. Million dollar rains fell Friday and Saturday nights, spreading total of 3.03 Inches of rainfall over the countryside. The rain Friday night followed a record hot day when the mercury reached 103 de grees for the third time this year The rain Friday night was heav lest, 1.6 Inches falling. Saturday night's rain totaled 1.43 Inches. Corn and grain lands, as well a pastures, are looking much green er.

I The law provides that a city ca» borrow up to 100 per cent of th»» cost of a project, but that 70 per cent must be backed by gilt-edged, security.

TKe first game in the afternoon was a red hot battle 'between Led- yar'd and Titonka, the former winning 8-3. The margin of victory for Ledyard did not indicate the closeness of the game, however, for Titonka put up a.real battle. Estherville and Bancroft staged the big game at 3:30, and Bancroft grabbed the game In the tenth Inning, .2-1. The score:was tied 1-<1 in the third, and the game then developed into a pitchers' battle between Paulson, St. Louis, for Es- thervllle, and Lichliter 'for 'Bancroft. Both were aided by good dean. .

Friday's rain fell in almost a cloudburst, and in places wind did damage. A road several miles south of Hobarton was partly washed out again. It had to be repaired last spring following a heavy rain and snowstorm in March. Many telephone, telegraph, and electric wires were dpwn. The Milwaukee Sioux from Chicago Sunday morning was 22 Tiours late, because of, a wealt railroad 'bed on the banks of the Mississippi river and the train did not reach Algona till 12:30 Sunday morning.

The top> of the tank would be 120 feet high. The. tank would hold 300,000 gallons of water, or three times the- capacity "of the present stand pipe. Another big advantage, of the new tower would be that all water in the tank would be 75 feet afror* ground, which' would give' much. greater pressure. In the present June Fall Still Short The rains brought the total for June to 3J58 inches, which is .42. inches below normal. The rainfall for the year is now 4.06 inches short of normal. The first three months of the year it was In excess 2.57 inches, the result of heavy snowstorms in March; but the second three months of April, May, and June were 6.63 Inches short of normal. Following the rains the mercury has remained at reasonable heights and. the evenings have (been cool. The temperature record for the standpipe It is the top 30 feet which provides pressure, so th* tank can be 70 per cent full and yet pressure has to be pumped. Would Cost $14,000 The new tank would cost approximately $14,000. If funds ar« granted, the city would pay soma$9,800, and the remainder rwouUfc^ come ^withoutr'Obligatlo~n'~froiir' !

The city now uses an average of 125,000 gallons of water a day. or 30 gallons per capita. The swimming pool requires approximately 9000 gallons a day. Water requirements are much higher in the summer than in winter, and the ^summer average approaches '200,000 gallons a day.
