Lien Holders Now on Equal Footing—Woman Suflrnge Not In Favor—General Notes. Lawyers Ripley of Garner and Nagle of Clarion were down to the capitol Thursday to argue the contested election case from the Wright-Hancock district. It seems that the straight republican ticket on the official ballot had no one named for representative. In columns by themselves Mr. Christie's and Mr. Hartshorn's names appeared. Many voters put a cross in the circle at the head of the republican ticket and then in the square in front of Mr. Hartshorn's name in the next column. These were not counted for Hartshorn. Mr. Hartshorn claimed that they should be inasmuch as no one was named in tho republican ticket, and therefore the mark in the circle was not a vote for anybody for the legislature. Mr. Christie denies this, and in addition claims that the appeal was not legally taken. Ripley appeared for Christie and Nagle for Hartshorn. -(- H- -H Woman suffrage is not likely to win. Representative Farley's committee in the house will report favorably and it may even pass the house. But the senate will not be as friendly. -*••*-•+• Judge Carr got a bill through the house by unanimous vote putting all lien holders for work done or material furnished on an even footing. There will be no prior mechanic's liens hereafter. •*••<-->A big republican caucus decided to endorse the Smith bill which will make the new rates for printing and binding take effect at once. Printer Conaway and Binder Young had the caucus called and consented to this arrangement. The cut is about 25 per cent, on present rates. -t- -s- -s- The whole legislature was taken on a trip to the Omaha exposition Saturday free. Representative Farley came home and spent Sunday in Whittemore. The purpose of the excursion was to impress the solons with the importance of a big appropriation for an exhibit. The amount asked is $50,000. If $15,000 is given it will be liberal. Only nine states in the union hold annual elections. A biennial election bill is likely to meet with little opposition. -*--!--*• In some respects the following paragraph is the most vital in the whole report of the Healey investigating committee: The liberality of the state in providing for its public charities is not axhibited in the appropriations made for its educational institutions. The state educational institutions are entitled to a greater appreciation, and to a larger share of the public expenditure. The legislature should remember that it is only in state universities and schools that the faculty is entirely free 'rotn the domination of those who, by creating chairs and endowments, seek to impress their views of social, economic, and other questions on -the student population of the country. 4- -f- -j- A novel situation in the house of rep- esentatiyes is shown in the case of Representative Spaulding of Floyd county. Mr. Towner, the representative-elect, being sick and unable to go :o Des Moines to attend the sessions, ihe old representative, Mr. Spaulding, & still acting as representative from that county, because iby law his term does not expire till his successor has been "elected and qualified." Mr. Towner, his successor, has been elected, but has never qualified as yet. Another feature in the case is that Floyd county got no representation on the house committees, simply because it is not known that Mr, Towner will get well or ever to be able to qualify, -j- 4- -*Hon. F. J. Blake of Webster county introduced a bill for a law to forbid any mudidate for office distributing or paying for intoxicating liquors during his ampaign. It makes proof of the offense a bar to the office. -T- -I- -T- Representative Jaeger, a democrat, voted for Conaway for state printer. He gave his reasons in writing: In explaining my vote I wish to go on record with the thousands of laboring men of the state who are opposed to contract labor. Iowa's fair name has not been 30 far stained with contract labor by her state officials, and I hope it never will be. I am opposed in politics to the present state printer, but in the absence of a candidate from my own political faith, I vote for F. R. Conaway, desiring thus to put the seal of condemnation upon contract labor. -T- T- -f- Davenport Times: With the Hon. A. B. Funk as the president pro tern, of the senate, and Hon. J. H. Funk as speaker of the bouse, the talismanic, if unpoetio, name of Funk will be a powerful one to conjure by in the present Iowa legislature. Although not related by ties of blood, they are as one in the possession of that ability which seeks its proper level in legislative assemblies as in other bodies tuid walks of life. Both are able men, and amply able to cope with any emergency which may arise, although none is expected. They were among the most prominent members of the preceding assembly, and their experience and political knowledge will bo of material advantage to the one now in session. The unanimity with which they wore selected is sufficient indication that they possess the confidence and esteem of their fellow members in the legislature. The Healey committee report says; The Iowa state university has a salary list which cannot be subjected to much criticism. The cost of salaries per student, and the number of stud'ents to each professor, is lower in Iowa university than in a dozen western states, except possibly the state of Minnesota. There is some uncertainty, however, in understanding the published report of the Minnesota university. ALL IS NOW IN READINESS.

DAY RIDE TO OHIOAGO. Beginning Sunday Algona will have a day run to Chicago as well as a night run over the Northwestern. The 7:05 morning train south will get to Chica- o at 8;45 in the evening. Leaving hicago at 10 a. m., will bring the passenger to Algona on the 10:28 evening train. Some local changes in time may be made, but they will be slight. In connection with this change anew fast service to Denver is inaugurated, the train toba known as the "Colorado Special." It leaves Chicago at lOa. m., getting to Omaha at midnight. It will pass Ames going west at 6:15 p. ra. Going east it connects with our train south at Ames, reaching Chicago as be"ore noted. This train will be vesti- buled throughout, lighted withPintsch gas, and will consist of drawing room sleeping cars, free reclining chair cars, 3uffet, smoking and library cars, coaches and dining cars serving all meals en ?oute. A feature in connection with the service of this train, which will be appreciated by tourists, is that it will afford an opportunity for a daylight : % ide through the progressive and thick- y settled portions of Illinois and Iowa, which has been impossible heretofore, as all trains for Denver have leftChica- o in the evening. MORE OP BILLY BUBTON. [To Tries to Get Back Harness From Ills Graders. When Supervisor Burton was squeezed by his creditors some weeks ago he turned over $200 of harness, etc., to the road graders he was owing. STow he wants it back, and has had J. H. Hoy arrested charged with stealing the harness. The Ledyard Leader says of the case: The facts as near as we can learn in regard to the harness are about as follows: Mr. Burton was owing Mr. Hoy for grading and at the time Burton's creditors were making a run on him he turned the harness over to Hoy as security for part of the money he had coming for labor. After Burton and Holston got matters fixed up so that they got back the property that the sheriff took from the place, Burton gets after Hoy to get the harness back, claiming that he merely turned it over to him to keep the other fellows from carrying it away with the other property. The graders are still out their money, and he has never made satisfactory settlement with them as was reported in the Algona papers some time ago, and they did not all sign the paper that was presented to the board of supervisors. UNFAIR TO BUTTON. His Hog Cholera Remedy Is .Endorsed by Men Who Have Tried It. The Enametsburg Democrat says: " Algona's notorious citizen, Sutton, is selling a cure for hog cholera. He claims it is the product of his own genius. Suttou is a corker. We believe the disease can not be much worse than the cure. The hog that is not treated with Button's medicine may die, but there is little chance for recovery for the farmer who deals with Sutton, He is one of Algona's 'blue sky' gang." The devil should have his due. Suit's hog cure is said to be u. good thing by substantial stock raisers who have tried it, A man would be very foolish to let his hogs die to epite S,ut- ton.
