Yours for trade, KELLIHAN IS GUILTY, He Is Found Guilty of Murder In the Tlrst pegree-rTbe Jury Was Out SI Hours, When the evidence was all In In the Kellihan trial at Fairmont Judge Qulnn Instructed the jury that the prisoner must be found guilty of murder In the first degree or be acquitted. After 21 hours the jury returned the former verdict, with a recommendation of clemency. The Fairmont Sentinel reports the trial at length, .From ^Its columns we clip a few items .calculated to show the character of the prisoner. The Sentinel sums It all up by saying: "He has certainly not been acting, but is either dull of understanding or hardened evil doer." - , . The first Interest he showed at any time was when the foreman announced that a verdict bad been agreed upon, He looked up-quickly and there was a lively twitching and winking about the eyes and he was all attention until after the verdict bad been read, when be looked down again and seemed »s unconscious as ever. Sheriff Hill broke the news of the verdict to Kellihan in the iail before going Into court.

Property owners are hereby, notified to remove all rubbish, garbage, ashes or manure from the alleys and clear same of all obstacles and obstructions. OMBB of failure to comply with this order should be promptly reported to the city The committee appointed by Mayor Chrischilles to Investigate into the electric light question consists of F. W. Dlngley, Alex. White and Dr. Sayers. It has gone at the matter with a view of bringing the lighting question to a settlement. There is a very general sentiment In favor of doing something for better street lights. As to private use there is some diversity of opinion, although the merchants have quite largely agreed to take electricity. Whatever is decided on The UPPER DES MOINES hopes that it will only be after a thorough investigation. The committee can well afford to visit Estherville, which put In its plant In connection with the water works, and which furnishes lights at very low cost: and also Emmetsburg, which is experimenting with the new gasoline light. Below we republlsh what the Emmetsburg papers say about the new system. If they are correct It is certainly worth careful looking over. An expense of $50 or $100 in having the committee know all about city lighting before anything Is reported or agreed to will be wisely made If it is needed. The committee is made up of careful business men and 'we hope they will be authorized to visit neighboring towns and make thorough Investigation before anything is done. EmmetsburK'B New Light. For the time being all talk of electric lights has ceased at Emmetsburg. -The Dooley block and Shaw & Kent's hardware store have the new gasoline light, which is so much cheaper than electricity, that the public Is waiting. Following are the newspaper comments. The Tribune says: The big street lamp hung in front of Smith & Benda's store is a light equal to anything in the electrical line—just as powerful, much cheaper and more penetrating through distance. The cheapness of this system Is one of its strongest recommendations; the light is much easier on the eyes; steady, and the system simplicity Itself. A, store or residence can be lit up for a trifling, expense after the plant is paid for, and it is said the saving will in a short time pay for the expense of putting it in It must be safe or the state would prohibit Its. use, This means of .illumination will soon have a fair test in Emmetsburg, as In addition to those plants now in operation others will go in this year. One or two fine residences will go up here, which will be lit up by this process and the system will be utilized also for cooking. The Keporter says: In front of the store Mr. Dooley has placed a large the west side of Lake Okoboji. A line Is to be built from Hampton southwest to Webster City. Why not stir up the Belmond line to Algona? • PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Prof. Skiff, son-in-law of Mrs. Klnzey Carlon, was in town yesterday. Mrs. Alex.
