"    39w2 The attorney general lias decided that under the law fusion nominees are required to pay double fees for filing certificates of nomination. The general election laws holds that a candidate receiving nominations from two or more parties and wishing to be designated upon the ballot as the candidate of such parties must pay a fee for each certificate of nomination filed. The fee for county candidates is $10, and thus, if both democratic and populist nominations are to appear on the ballot in this county each candidate will have to pay $20. This is hardly necessary and it is not likely to be done. The attorney general decrees that the fusionists should have two sets of judges of election, that is, the two fusing parties should draw judges separately. A suit has been instituted by Dr. C. AV. Ballard to annul the deed for the flax tow' mill lots, which he donated on condition that it should be made a successful industry, and to secure judgment for the building and machinery of the mill through forfeiture under the contract. The failure of the enterprise is due to the financial misfortune of Hamilton Kerr, of Huron, S. J)., now liviug at Chattanooga, Term., he having lost everything in the disasters which during the hard times have bankrupted so many, and it is as well a misfortune to Albert Lea, for our citizens donated $400 to the enterprise, and it is, of course, a total loss. More than this, the result will discourage citizens in aiding such enterprises in the future. Dr. Ballard deserves to succeed in his suit, for the enterprise has been a complete failure. For Representatives in the Legislature the L. P. LAWSON, of Geneva. AV. IL MILLER, of Freeborn. Their platform—Adopted by people’s party convention: Itesolved, That believing in the practical application of the initiative and referendum, where possible, we instruct our nominees for representatives in the legislature, in ease of their election, to demand and support the passage of a law' enabling tile respective counties to vote on the question of licensing the sale of intoxicating liquors.

The peoples party is the only party that has ever nominated a woman for an office in Freeborn county, and in naming Miss Mary Burke for superintendent of schools, it certainly has done itself honor, for she is a lady of unblemished character, she has had extensive experience as an educator and all admit her qualifications for the office.

Although the Forest City yard is furnishing most of the brick for the new’court house there, Mr. Kusfeldt says the contractor will take 100.000 of him. Mr. Kusfeldt is engaged in en-larging his yard here, increasing its capacity 25 per cent. Albert Lea has become the most important brickmaking point in southern Minnesota, and tile-making at Morin’s yard is a growing and important feature of Hie business. An exchange says that J. II. C Swan, who foretold the St Louis cyclone and other remarkable weather events, says “the winter of 1896-7 will be very long and cold, with much snow in all localities where snow is a factor. Blizzards w ill be numerous, highways and railways will be blocked, all to be followed by much rainfall and high water most of the year. Do not lie in haste to get in the spring crops. Plant large and late varieties of corn. AVet weather will be your trouble.” The fact that there is a great shortage of wheat compared with recent years and that the foreign demand is strong has enhanced the price and while no one can tell what will happen if the grain monopoly decides to corner the citip, the prospects are that the needs of consumers of flour will be such that the millers will be obliged to offer higher prices to induce farmers to sell in sufficient quantities, and exporters will have to do the same to supply the foreign demand. Thus there is a likelihood of somewhat better prices. The stale board of equalization has finished its work and adjourned and V. Gillrup, the member from this district has returned home. The board, without doubt, has performed the best work of any ever before in session in the state. In important instances it relieved from high assessments property of those least able to stand it and transferred it to underrated banks and franchises and to real and personal property that was not bearing its due share of taxation. The only change affecting directly Freeborn county is that of land, the average value per acre being fixed at $11.45. The newspapers generally commend the work of the board and its members deserve the thanks of the people for their wise, honest and just efforts to equalize the burdens of taxation.
