H. Goeders as member of the state fish and game commission, following presentation of a demurrer by Mr. Goeders' attorneys at Des Moines Tuesday morning. The demurrer set forth that the council had no legal authority to bring the charge of ineligibllity against Mr. Goeders on the ground that he was not a democrat when he was appointed 'by Governor Dan Turner, for the reason that the then' governor, in good faith and after Investigation, and with the power to act, passed on that question and his decision was final. Turner Hakes Investigation. At the time Mr. Goeders was appointed the poll books and other recorls were inspected and Mr. Goeders was approved as a democrat by the county democratic central committee. On this record he by Algonian of 59 Years Ago An oldtimor of oldtimers dropped into Algona unannounced Tuesday morning. She was Mrs. Edith Lazelle Clouse, Portland, Ore., and it is 59 years since she left Algona, but though she had never been back since 1874 she could still recognize familiar spots in the old town, and she and Aunt Jen Wadsworth recognized each other on sight. Mrs. Clouse was a pioneer Algona teacher, the step-daughter of Martin Pierce, a fanner and carpenter. The family came to Algona in 1865 and lived here nine years. Ever since they left Mrs. Clouse has lived at Portland. Accompanied by twin daughters Eloise and Eunice, Portland teachers, Mrs. Clouse had been making a tour of visits with relatives in the east and had attended the world's fair. The party, now homeward bound, left last night for St Paul and thence will return to Portland via a Canadian route They are traveling by train anc while here they put up at the Al gona hotel. .Mrs. Clouse asked for Jennie Mp Intyre at the hotel, but no such person was known. But Mrs. Clous- remembered where Aunt Jen llvei o many years ago, so she and her aughters went to the .house, and vhen Aunt Jen opened the door, VIrs. Clouse said, "You are Jennie flclntyre.' And Aunt Jen came back with, "Yes, and you are Edith La- Bile." After 69 years'. Of course a grand visit follow- id, and Aunt Jen and Mrs. Mar- raret Hofmaster took the visitors lor a ride about town and to the Ambrose A. Call state park. Now and then Mrs. Clouse recognized an oldtime spot, particularly the park, through which she often iramped as a child and 'young woman. Mrs. Clouse is related by cpusln- ship to H. R. Cowan, and the Cowans entertained the visitors at dinner at the Country club clubhouse Tuesday night. Mrs. Clouse reported the death last winter of John McGetchie, brother of the late .Roy McGetchie.who was for many years express agent here. John grew up here, but moved to Portland many years ago. He inherited Roy's Plum Creek township farm Mrs. 'Clouse sees Wilfred IN LOCAL CLUB GOLF TOURNEY Interest Aroused By Auction Brings Out Crowd.

The law requires division of membership between republicans and democrats. The sole basis of the attempt against Mr. Goeders was that he was in truth a republican and so was holding office - under false colors. It was shown at the hearing that at the time of the appointment, and ever since, there has been no question of Mr. Goeders' allegiance as a member of the democratic More to Secure 50 Jobs. Conservationist observers here view the proceeding as an effort by the democratic patronage machine to salvage some 60 jobs which the fish and game department has for distribution. Mr. Goeders has, with two other members of the committee, successfully withstood pressure to distribute the commission's jobs as partisan patronage. The three members have insisted that emj ployes be hired only on merit and without regard to political faith. Hearing Set Back an Hour. The hearing was originally set for 9 a. m. Tuesday, but was post- noned to 10 a.m. by Governor Herring. A large group of conservationists who had gathered in Des Moines to attend the hearing had been told that it would be a closed meeting and that only the principals would be admitted. On -this understanding most _ of the sportsmen left the Capitol, but 'others who arrived at 10 stormed the committee room, and 3C I or them succeeded in entering to hear the proceedings. ' Mr. Goeders was represented by Attorneys F. W. Lehman, Jr., Des Moln™, and Wilson Cornwall. Spencer, who had been engaged by conservation organizat ons and sportsmen supporting him. Most view the proceeding as and are determined to IOWA STATE BANK. TOTAL UP$340,000 The remarkable rate at which the Iowa State 'Bank is growing is illustrated by its statement of condition as of June 30, published this week. There is an increase In footings of more than $340,000 since the last preceding statement on March 14. The footings then were $1,420,668.39; now they are $1,762,686.46. The bank's position as regards cash or its equivalent shows a like increase. In March the figure was $1,058,652.42, while now it is $1,428",061.09. It is to be doubted that any other bank in Iowa can make a better, or even so good, a showing as regards liquidity. At least the number is exceedingly few probably not over a half dozen. The deposits in less than four months have risen nearly f 340,000 or from $1,310,448 to $1,639,485 There are no overdrafts.

BOY SCOUT SAVES 2 FROM DROWNING Two near-drownings were averted at the river near Burt the after^ noon of the Fourth, when 14-year old Bobby Giddings, son of Rural Mail Carrier Guy C.

To offset somehow these low estimates the report estimated grain still on farms at higher figures than a year ago. Wheat production was estimated at 496 million bushels, as compared with a normal of 850 million. iFor Kossuth county the state crop bureau estimated a 91 per cent corn yield beween Bancroft and St. Joe and running nearly to the east and west borders. Bordering areas were estimated at 86 to 89 per cent of normal. Only.five other similar sections of the ; state showed such high percentages as central Kossuth. Speculative buying on the market so far has been by the public, grain operators being afraid of a sag.

Mr. Falkenbainer had driven the car home a few minutes before the theft. When he went out to drive It Into the garage for the night it was gone. He notified local officers.

He went to bed, but when he saw the car - there after he got up he n- It was the first time that he had swum in deep water himself, and he risked his life to make the rescue. He managed to reach and hold the two girls while his brother Gordon got a pole and drew the trio to shore. The group had gone to the river with Mr. Giddings in the afternoon, following family dinner at the Giddings home. They had been in the river at the same point a few days before, but the river had filled in the meantime and was deeper, following heavy rains the last week in June, • The two girls cannot swim, but they know how to float. While they were floating the current carried them into water eight feet deep. The Giddings girl was unconscious when brought to the shore, and the Ward girl was fast losing strength.
