Both Sieele and Stutesman are claiming a majority of tne Miami county delegates to the congressional convention. Steele claims seven of the twelve delegates outside of Peru, If the Steele delegates from Pern are seated Stutesman will lose the county. If Steele secures 7 of the 17 delegates from Miami county he will likely be renominated on the first ballot. It was expected that Stutesman would have a solid delegation in bis home county. It was expected that after Stutesman was out of the raca Judge McOonnel! would get a solid delegation from Miami county, but from latest reports It looks as though Major Steele will get half the delegation. If Steele pursues the same tactics in Cass county that he baa in the other counties, of the district, he will get some delegates from this county. Steele is in communication with certain Cass county Republicans and he will be governed by their advice relative to making a straight, ngbt against Judge McDonnell. If Steele's friends are certain that they have enough votes to nominate without drawing on Caoacounty, no fight will be made. If any votes are lacking, Steele will try to get them Irom this county. It would be well for Judge McDonnell's friends to keep a close watch on the post office and court house. THE PARTY NEWSPAPER. Some Mistaken potions Upon That Poorly Understood Subject. "A. patty newspaper," says the Kentland Enterprise, "is generally regarded by the average office-seeker as a handy article:to have around In case the opposition press says some thing derogatory to him and bis prospects. A party.newspaper is expected to praise every candidate in the field, It must be absolutely impartial and never presume to have a candidate of its own. It is expectec. to condone all the faults of the officials of its own party and speak kindly of them no matter how contemptible and mean their treatment may sometimes be of the paper that helped elect them. Fortunately for party newspapers the majority of public officials appreciate the unselfish work of the press and accord to them all of the courtesies within their power. We do not mean by tbis patronage, for the sum of humao happiness.is not always bound up in dollars and cents. The newspaper man who is made to feel that his work, week in and week out, for his party is appreciated, is far happier than the one who receives a few chunks of offislal pitronage ungraciously thrown to him as a matter of party expediency only. MORE RECRUITS Left Rochester Yesterday to Fill the Places of Those Who Did Not Puss. Rochester was the scene of much excitement yesterday over the leaving of nearly one hundred more recruits for Indianapolis.
