Special Arrangements With the Ottum­

Wire Service Throughout the Night
—All the News of the Election.
In order to give to the people of Ot
tumwa, Wapello county and vicinity
the election returns as early as .they
can be compiled, the Courier has 'made
more elaborate and extensive arrange
ments than ever before for receiving
and dissembling the news of the vofc
ing, in Ottumwa, in Wapello county,
In the district, the state and through
out the nation.
Getting the News..
The Courier will, with its own corps
of reporters and correspondents, gath
er the returns from Wapello and sur
rounding counties by telephone and
telegraph, throughout the night
and Wednesday morning.
The Courier will be served by tele
graph with the returns from the states
other than Iowa where .elections are
being held.
The Courier will receive special dis
patches from Des Moines, Davenport.
Keokuk, Council Bluffs Creston, Ma
son City, Fort Dodge and other points
in Iowa, giving the returns from all the
different parts of the state as fast as
they are compiled.
Special Election Edition.
The Courier will issue, on Wednes
day morning, a special election edi
tion which will contain all the ne'Ws
obtainable up to the time of going to
press. Instead of giving incomplete
returns, as would be done were the
special edition to be published at
or 6 o'clock in the morning, the issue
will go to press as near 9 o'clock as
possible, in order to give the news al
most if not quite complete. The extra
edition will not be delivered but will
be sold in Ottumwa and will be sent to
other cities and towns on the morning
trains leaving Ottumwa after 9 o'clock.
Being issued at that hour, it will con
tain much later and more reliable
news than the early morning papers
and, it is confidently believed, will be
appreciated by the people in the Cou
rier's territory. The regular daily is
sue of the Courier will be printed
Wednesday afternoon.
Will Use Stereoptican.
The Courier will show the -returns
as fast as they are received, by means
of a stereoptican, the screen to be on
the W. E. Jones & Cv,building, oppo
site the Courier office on Second street.
Special Telephone Service.
By special arrangement with the Ot
tumwa Telephone Co., the Courier will,
on Tuesday night, be served by that
company with six separate telephones
in addition to the local and long dis
tance instrument on the loya Tele
phone Co. line. One line "will connect
the Courier directly with the South Ot
tumwa central station another will
lead from the Courier office to the toll
desk, to be used entirely for out-of
town calls the remaining four lines
will be used for local calls on the Ot
tumwa company's wires.
Telephone or telegraph inquiries will
be answered cheerfully and promptly
by the Courier and every effort possi
ble will be made to inform the people
of the city, county and surrounding
territory of the results of the election.
The stereoptican will be put into
use as soon as the returns begin com
ing from New York, probably 7 o'clock
this evening, and will be used to
display the news from a:i over the
country, the state and the county. As
usual the Courier office will be open
throughout the night and seats will be
provided for as many as can be ac
commodated inside the building.
