It is true that Mr. Ilaukness' ap- pointment was supported by a numer- ously signed petition, but the large majority only asked for it when a change should be made, expecting that Postmaster Stacy would be allowed to serve his full term, and upon the fur- ther implied understanding and just expectation that a convenient, respect- able office, and one fully equal to that supplied by Postmaster Stacy would be furnished by his successor. It was naturally expected that no republican would have less enterprise, less pride in Albert Lea, and less regard for the interests and accommodation of the people than a democrat; but in this the people were mistaken, and are now oc- cupying the unenviable position of victims of grossly misplaced confidence. Instead of a post office that represents ;he spirit and progress of the city, that is elegant, convenient and commodious and the very best in all its appoint- ments that is made in the country, as was that provided by Postmaster Stacy, a democrat, the citizens of this city have an old, repainted outfit forced upon them that is unsuitable, incon- venient, and a positive discredit and disgrace. It is established in a small store-room, which the splendid outfit of Postmaster Stacy would almost com- pletely fill, and instead of being on a conspicuous and handy corner of Broad- way, is on a side street, obscurely lo- cated and admitting of only a front entrance for the extensive business that must be transacted. Here is enterprise, progress, repub- licanism and civil service reform for you with a vengeance! We repeat, that if the republicans of Albert Lea could now decide the ques- tion of restoring Postmaster Stacy and his outfit of government standard, Yale lock boxes in place of Postmaster Ilaukness and his cheap, shabby and snide establishment, it would be quick- ly done by a vote of more than three to one, and so enthusiastically that an- other such an outrage would never again be perpetrated in Albert Lea by the bosses of any party. He Was Not the Bight Cooney. The man Cooney who was arrested and held last week for identification on suspicion of being one of the mur- derers of Dr. Croniu was released on word being received from Chief Ilub- bard of Chicago that he was not the right man. Chief Carey caused him to be shaved and his photograph was then taken and sent to Chicago with the fol- lowing result, as stated by the Chicago Extra Fine, New Styles, Ladies' Writing Desks, CURTAINS and FIXTURES. We put up Curtains for our Customers. A full line aiicl Ooffiiis. Chief Hubbard yesterday received from Albert Minn., a photograph of the man arrested there under suspicion of being Cooncy. The chief's criticism on the picture was: "He looks about as much like Cooney as a pound and a half of grape jelly looks liko a milk wagon." After this extravagant comparison he wired the Albert Lea authorities, ordering the suspect's release. "We have been unaWe to find a single clow to said the chief, and I cannot say that I am hopeful of his immediate arrest. I would much like to find him and Introduce him to his old 'pal' Burke In the county jail. As soon as the Albert Lea Cooney was released he at once proceeded to celebrate the event by going on a stag- gering drunk. He evidently enjoyed the notoriety that had been accorded him. J. F.
