Perry Milwaukee Eailroad Changes. A. J. Karling, Assistant dent, form Itiilvraukeo, and Mr Camp- bell of Marion, w'eie in the city last week, looking over railroad matters here and nukmg arrangements for some important changes winch the company have in coniemplatioii. Lately the company seems to have adopted a new policy in the management of their im- portant railway mtei ests. Instead of having so many small shops it expects to have fewerfauil more injportantones. In pursuance of such plans the repair WOIKS, machinery are to be transfer- red from Council Bluffs to Chillicathe Missouri: and the machinery of Van Home taken to Marion. Tbat will en- large the number of miles of road that will have its repairing done here, and necessitate the increasing of the number of workmen required to do the work, if if. does not double the number required. Mr. Ilickman the foreman of the round house at Council Bluffs will occupy a similar position at this point, and Mr. Plumb, will be transferred from here to Mai ion. What is known as the Com- pany ytore here under the charge of Mr. Sexton it is expected will bedis continued which will take away four to six employes. The train dispatching force, under the management of J. M. Bunker, will be enlarged, and tbe run- ning of trains on both the Western and Middle Division, that is between Coun- cil Itlnffx and Marion will be run from this point. Other changes are in con- templation, but they can only be re- fered to when more fully matured. The officers express themselves highly gratified with the management of every- thing nt this point, and such expressions of confidence are highly gratifying to the men who are putting In their ser- vices here. Mrs. Chas. living three and one half miles south of Col- lins, in Story county, was shot in tbe cheek by a revolver in the bands of her eight year old son. Some older boy shad put a cartridge in the revolver, wblcb they mold not shoot off after many trials, and laid the revolver down. Tbe child was playing with it as had been his custom, with the above result. Tbe wound is not considered dangerous unless ervMpeliis or aome other disease seta in with it. prepesed Ceaijlq THE HUB" ASTONISHES COMPETITOR, And draws trade from the North side, from the South Side, from the East Side, and from the "West Side of this entire community, by its INCOMPARABLE VALUES, AND Unequaled Low Prices.

This cut represents the Court House and Jail which the citizens of Perry are willing to build and give to the County if the County will use it. Difference bet ween Perry and Ad el. The difference between Perry and Adel is a considerable besides the differ- ence in their size. Adel is probably '.V> years old, and baa been tbe official borne of all tbe county officers and those who make their living by picking up tbe crumbs tbat fall from the official tables for all those years. Tbe city is supposed to possess a population to-day, of about 1100 souls, big and little, and they want a court house worth built by the tax payers of the county. Perry is a town of about 300U, and is willing to build a comt house that will last the county 100 years and give it to the county it the county use it. Does not that show a considerable difference between the city of Adel and tbe town of Perry? Headers and tax- payers. whichsuits you the best? Which way will save you the most monej Hut say the stories set afloat by- well no matter It is bnber> to tiy to influence voters b> Hiring a c-ouit house to the county. Not as far us ever been decided by anj court. .Marshall- town built a court house and gave it to county in liviS, for the icmoval of the county scat t'lom Maiit'U.i ti> that place, and it was not bribery Clinton Lyons built a court house and gave it to Clinton county for the removal of the county seat from De- Witt, and 'we never heard ot bribery in that case. Btibe tho public; how is such a thing possible. It will not do to rely upon that question in a court of law to defeat tbe will of the people. Perry need have no fears from that source, Adel need build no hopes upon it. WILL 1'BIIUV I'.UY THE Ol-l> OUNTY HU1LDINC13? ;No! Perry wants nothing to do with the old county buildings. Perry will build a new court house from bottom to top, it to the county and the Of Supervisors can sell the old county buildings to the highest biddti, 01 give them to the city ot Adt-1 for a Noimal school building, a county Intiitnarv, an Insane Asylum, or whatever is most needed. Perry will make no claim on either the county buildings or the Giegg Fund to aid in putting up a new court house. So the county will not only have a new court bouse, but the old county property to help pay off the pres- ent indebtedness of WHAT KIND OK A COIT.T HOIVE, will Perry build for tin- count} V A good one, one that I't'iij uill l-e pioud todiiect the oitizen.s ot tin- county to, one that will last longer th.in ;mv living person in tbe county, one that will have room for all the offices of the county with flre proof vaults and iron doors from each office. And it will be finish- ed in workmanlike manner from top to bottom. Perry wants no shoddy ure.no cheap Johnnie concern, but a good substantial structure, modern architecture in style and in the finish. WILL PERKY GIVE SECURITY, that tbe building will be put up as re- presented? Yea! citizens will bond with a penalty re, if desired. Or it will not removal ot a single officer or record till the court house is il and leady to go into. Perry is not'tiying to play any swindling game. It simply asks that the people will vote for Perry for county seat upon condition that Perry builds tbe court house without expense to tbe county. In conclusion we can say there is but difference between Perry and Adel in one thing. They both want the county seat. But there is a great diff- erence in the two places inthe amount of business each one is compelled to trans- act with the county officers. There is a vast difference in the way each one desires to get a new conit house. It is for you, taxpayer-, and voters of Dallas county to say how you will secure a new courthouse. You must gay whether you are willing to build it yourseh es or are willing .some one else should build it for your use. That is the whole ques- tion in a nut shell. n. E.
