That was unfair and caused many people .to .hide Jtheir, mpijevs and credits from •thfe assessor, or where the owner $as conscientious to cause him, to move 'to some other state tyhere they were treated more fairly. \ -To relieve tb^ situation, the 34th session of the legislature passed a law levying a tax of five mills, in lieu of all other taxes of whatever kind on moneys and credits.

He was released under a nd the case continued to radios for the re'port of the Alabama- Wfeshlnpton ' state f oo'tball game" held at Pasadena, California, on New Year's day. The main attraction for most Algona folks was the fact that a former Algona boy, Cleve Iiantry, was announcing tiie game, taking turns with B.ill Munday, the famous announcer, who is known all over the "Cleve" has a splendid radfp 1 . voice, and in the opinion of many excelled the great Bill Munday. Cleve, who is a brother of the late Col. Harry Lantry, and Mrs. Tom Sherman of Algona, is announcer- and business manager of a broadcasting company in Spokane, Washington, where lie makes his home. He arid his 'wife spent a week at Los Angeles and Pasadena previous to the big game which.iis an annual event in connection with the Carnival of Roses at Pasadena. game, which was held in the celebrated "Rose Bowl" was attended by ai croWd of seventy thousand people, and was won by the Alabama team 24 to 0. , Runchey Moves his : Grocery Store. Ellis Runchey, who has conducted a grocery store and meat market for a number of years in the Lars Sorensen building on East State street is moving hjs stock to the Galbraith building adjoining 1 the Goeders store. It is reported that Lars Sorensen and son, Harold, will open up a grocery store in the place vacated. Mr. Sorensen was for years engaged in the grocery business in Algona, but of late years has been a grocery salesman. Tony Kirsch 111 / With Blood Poison. Tony Kirsch, proprietor of the Kirsch laundry, has had quite a siege with blood poisoning. He scratched his finger the first of last week on the furnace. The injury became infected and his arm began to swell, with the result that 'he was takqn deriousjy ill New Year's eve. For two or 'fn-ee days his conditon was very critical, but today he is Improving Philomena Qulnn, is caring for him. Charles Lathrop Now Very 111. Charles Lathrop, the abstractor and for years a members of the firm of Lathrop & Weaver, is reported very ill at his home on East State street. He has been confined to his bed for several weeks land his condition is such that much alarm is felt by his family and friends, Hon C. B. Hutchlns has consented to write a series of articles for the Upper Des Mblnes- Republican, discussing the different features of the recent report of the state tax commission. The most important matter to come before the Iowa legislature which meets .next week is the readjustment of taxes, and the repottlt of the tax commission will be used mostly hi making the new adjustment of taxes. Mr. Hutchlns is perhaps one of the best posted men hi the state on taxing problems. As county auditor of Kossuth county for several terms while a young man his attention was early called to tax problems, and he has made a life study of taxation in its many phases. Later as a member of the state legislature from Kossuth county he took an active interest in all questions of taxation. His judgment on equal- zation of.the tax burdens would seem to be the best available. Chairman Clarke of the state tax commission, has frequently asked the opinion 1 of Mr. Hutchins in formulating bills to be placed before the -legislature this win. ter, and Mr. Hutchlns has at all times been fa close touch with Senator George Patterson, a member of the state tax commission, whose advocacy of the state income tax is so well known.' In. the December 17 issue Of the Upper Des Moines- Republican, Mr. Hutchlns discussed the proposed county as• sessor plan.' Below he discussed the'proposed money and credit tax and other articles will follow^—Editor. , ., small,. bufl much of the property of the state was not paying a tax of five mills on its real value. Having had a hand or part in passing the law T felt such an interest that soon 'after, I carefully looked over the tax rolls of Kossuth county, and as nearly as 1 could figure', Just about half of the townships were paying less than five mills on the actual values, I was hi Linn county, talking with the coun- f.y auditor. A man had recently^ his farm and was complaining auout moneys and credits being taxed only five mills. The auditor went and examined to see what his tax was and it was less than three mills on the sale price of his farm. The tax now on moneys and credits Is six mills, and the tax committee appointed by the last legislature has proposed that its' be reduced to two mills, to be paid in advance ort mortgages when they are presented for record, for the purpose oi,' requiring non-resident owners of mortgages to pay some part of the taxes, from which they have heretofore been entirely exempt. A two mill tax seems small. It will be two dollars on a thousand. I have saen it stated that there is two billions of foreign capital Invested In Iowa mortgages. A two mill tax, when these mortgages are renewed or new ones made, if taxed as proposed, will raised four million dollars, a tidy little sum,- which has heretofore entirely escaped taxation by reason of the non-resident money owners and lenders, who have always had an advantage over local money lenders because-their money could not be taxed as was that of local men, they could afford to loan tihelr money at a less rate of interest than the local men as long as he paid the tax.' The proposed plan will put them on a par with each other. Will this provision help the man who wishes to borrow money and has to give a mortgage as security. I believe it will. -But first I wish to state a proposition with which, I believe everybody will agree. It is that everybody who has money to lend has an inherent right to demand and receive a reasonable rate of interest for its use. If he has to pay a tax on the money he lends he cannot'afford to loan his money as cheaply aS he could if there were no tax. As a consequence the borrower has, heretofore, ID effect been taxed doubly, when loans have been made locally. mortgages are usually made for five years, and are-.then renewed or new pnes made. The recording, fee, or tax, two mills will-be so low, • two dollars on a thousand,?once in five years, that most lenders-will probably not add it to the rate of (Interest they have been getting, making'it^ttiat'much easier for the borrower, f ityjs possible, and I think qute.probapfe'that the two mill tax, thus«levied,-wil}.rraise. nearly or quite as much as the five'and six: mill tax has raised ib past years. At'least, I am, Sure,Jte^WiusQmj8 parts -ofXike, •E«5-<3W^ik*« th'e" counties havln%= large cities, within their borders, for there is where most of the moneys and credits of the state are found. It is worth trying.—C. B. Hutchins. Liquor Violators Haled Before Court. Three liquor violators were taken to Emmetsburg Monday by Kossuth county authorities and appeared before Judge F. C. Davidson. William Mayer whose home is in Waterloo and who was picked up by Marshall Newville some time ago for drunkenness was given a fine of $300 and costs and sentenced-to three months in jail for illegal possession of intoxicating liquor. The fine and all but forty days of the jail sentence'was suspended and the offender was paroled to County Attorney G. D. Shumway. Ray Adams of Emmetsburg was given the same sentence as Mayer on the same charge. He was also paroled to Mr. Shumway. William Brass, a farmer living near Fenton, was fined $300 and costs plus $75.00 attorney fees for maintaining a liquor nuisance and three months in jail. If the fine is not paid he must serve ninety days at hard labor. If the fine is paid the jail sentence is to be suspended. He is then to be paroled to Sheriff L. E. Hovey. It is understood that the still which was thoughtfully left on the court house lawn some time ago belonged to Brass. Dr. Evans at Howie With Sprained Hip. Dr. R. A. Evans was quite badly injured in an automobile accident the Friday evening after Christmas. He had one rib broken, hJjS back was wrenched and he was generally bruised and shaken. Later it developed that he had a badly sprained hip which is causing him considerable pain. Until the extent of the hip injury was dicovered the doctor thought he would be able to be back at the office in a few days. He will now be compelled to remain at home and in bed for some little time longer. The accident occurred when the car in which Dr. Evans was riding with a Mr. Robinson from Irvington locked left front wheels with an approaching car driven by Miss Rahm from St. Benedict. The impact of the collision threw the doqtor through the door and out onto the ground. The doctor's many friends are anxious for his speedy recovery. Algona Bowlers Make Good Scores. The bowling season at the Hyb Alleys started Monday after a holiday lay off. The games for the week are as follows Monday—Champllnsi vs Doctors; Tuesday—Deep .Rock vs Elbert's Garage; • Wednesday—Standard Oils vs Bottlers; Thursday—Nicks vs Goodyear. The Hub offered three prizes to the high scores befdre .ChristmlaB. The turkey was won by Nick Maharas with a score of 279; the goose by Robinault and Donovan who turned in a score of 278 and third prize was won tfy L. Phillips and H. "White who rolled 277 each. Last week of local bowlers composed of Heinphlll, Rotolnaulb, Donovan, Lampright and L. Phillips defeated the Piggly Wiggly team from Port Dodge at the Hub Alleys by a score of 2707 to 2504. The locals were defeated by the same team at Fort Dodge a day or so previous. La&t Sunday the following team drove to Carroll and participated in a state tournament there: Hemphill, White, Robinault, Mahnras, Donovan, Plvillips. Up to the time we go to press they stand second in the tournament which has teams from, all over this pnrt of the state and two from Omaha. In the doubles, Phillips and Hemphill rolled 1017; Donovan and Robinault, 1017; Maharas and White 889. In the singles Hemphill rolled 551; Maharas, 470;; Donovan, 470' White, 474; Phillips, 532 and Robinault, 470. In the team play, Hemphill rolled 546; White, 534; Donovan, 487; Phillips, S94; RobinatUt, 491. This to- talled 26ii2. Algona has a number of enthusiastic bowlers and there are some very creditable scores turned in. New Pastor Conies to Congregational Church. Rev. Fred J. Clark preached his first sermon as pastor of the Congregational church here Sunday. He arrived Sunday morning from his home in Eugene, Oregon, to take up the new pastorate. Mrs. Clark and the three children will not come until June. Rev. Clark is a son of judge and Mrs. J. J. Clark and a brother of Senator Ed. Clark, all of Mason City, He & staying at the Theo. Elbert home in the Jasperson on State street. Oil Company After i Mrs. McCalPs Property. It was rumored that Mrs. J. J. McCall had sold her home on East State street to an oil company and that a service station would be erected on the corner. Mrs. McCall states that she has been made an offer for a lot, part of which is occupied by the house and would have to be moved Jf she made the deal. Reports, she said, that the deal had been closed are not true. It was reported that the offer made for the south half of the two lots facing State street was $8,000. This would leave the north half of the lots for the house should she move it. She stated that she did not know the name of the oil company making the pffer. New Rotary Clubs Were Organized. Al Palkenhainer gave a verry interesting talk at the Monday luncheon of the Algona club on new clubs organized in foreigli countries during the past year. Clubs were organized in Europe, 'Asia and Africa and the organizer, Mr. Davidson, who has been prominent in International Rotary for a number of years, and a personal friend of Mr. Falkenhainer was the organizer. An effort will probably be made to have Mr. Davidson, upon his return to America next summer, visit Algona and at a district meeting to be called, give an address. Mrs. Geo. Free, who was Miss Marie Paine before her marriage December 23. UNCLE SAM'S POST OFFICLBUS1NESS Business During Past Year Practically Normal. Increase in Money Order, PAY ROLL A BIG ITEM FOR THE CITY. FARM AND HOME WEEK AT AMES Happy Days Are Here Again—Maybe. In a cully festooned ball rr>om dcror- atrd with vari-colored balloons and crepe paper tlie Happy Pastime Danc- incr club enjoyed one of their most delightful affairs Monday evening. Algona's "500" cavorted and tripped to the seductive strains of Bert Browns Victorians, the recording orchestra from Des Moines which had previously played In Algona at the annual Rotary Christmas party. Once more gay evening gowns and tuxedos came forth to show that their former appearances were not a mere flash in the pan, but that local society buds and buddies were intent that Algona should not be a back number In "puttin' on the rite." But read further, and see what our special London correspondent has to say in regard to the tuxedo at formal affairs. "London, January 6: Full dress is favored by society apaln. The dinner jacket here has been tossed into the moth's pantry. In its place, after 12 years of exile, has returned to the tailcoats and white ties Style arbiters say the losing battle against long skirts and long gloves 1 fought by women, has affected the I dress of men. One exclusive club in fashionable St. James* street will not permit anyone to enter the fining room unless they are in complete evening dress." And to think that some of our most prominent citizens committed the faux pas of purchasing new tuxedoes. Nearly Million Letters Mailed Here Lost Year. Well Equipped Second Class Office. Business In the Algona post office was practically normal during the past year with a slight decrease in gross receipts over the previous year, due probably to the general conditons of the locality. ; much Mail Handled. • The modern cancelling machine records the number of pieces of 'mail passing .through and shows a small increase over» ,1929. r No count is held on incoming mail but this is much, greater than the , outgoing. Nearly a million pieces of mail pass through the can- celling machine yearly. Office Well Equipped. .flQSt' oFie" of the best tequlplped secoM- cl offices in the state with plenty of room for handling the' mail and caring for the other business. The equipment was all new when the office was moved into the present quarters less than three years ago and is owned by the department. The building is owned by Miss Julia A. McEnroe, who resides in Texas, but a former Algona lady and was purchased a few months ago from the banking department. The post office department leased the rooms for a period of ten years and pays a rental of $2400 annually, light, heat and water furnished. Clerks and Carriers. The office force consists of the postmaster, assistant postmaster, four clerks, three city carriers, two rural carriers, four substitute carriers, mail messenger and janitor. Clerks and carriers are limited to eight hours a day, the eight hours to be utilized within any ten hours. The general delivery window opens at eight a. m. and closes at six p. m., during which time money orders and postal savings business is transacted. Pay Roll Helps Al^ona. The pay roll of the employees of the Algona post office amounts to nearly $30,000 annually and with other expenses, the expenditures are over $31,000. Money Orders and Postal Savings. The office transacts a tremendous money order business and the number of orders sold annually number nearly 15,000, besides many are paid. The fees received amount to several hundred dollars annually, does not enter into the receipts of the office. The postal savings business which started several years ago, has grown gradually and perhaps over $200,000 is now on deposit. This money, however, is placed in depository banks us it is paid in and tlie department is protected by bonds deposited by the banks. Former Bancroft Man Died on January 2nd. Bancroft, January 6.

Peterson dropped into the office the other day for one of his frequent and pleasant calls, and in the course of his conversation stated that he had been a subscriber to the Upper Des Moines-Republican for thirty-nine years.

New York out of San Pedro, California. Rev. Dubbe Will Leave Algona. Rev. and Mrs. H. Dubbe and children leave Algona this week for their new home in Webster county. Rev.
