WILL BE CLOSE. Major Steele Mn«t Secure at Least Mne Votes From HuDtlngton. He Could be Beaten if Miami Conntj Would Stand Solid for Statesman. The Kokomo Dispatch which is generally well informed as to political jttrt-s in Howard county sives it o\u as a fixed fact that Major Steele will receive 19 of the 21 votes of Howard comity in the Congressional convention, 'it is conceded that Steel* will pet five votes from Miami county. Including wirb these 24 votes, the vot,:S of Grant county, Steele must ?et nine more votes from some other source to insure a re-nomination. These he expects to set, from Huntinsrton couniy. MeCcmneirs manners 'feel hopeful of capturing a majority of the Hunt- injrton county delegation. If they do Judse McComu'll's changes for capturing the nominal ion are pood. At this lime Humin^ton comity holds the key to the situation. If Steele get* nine of the 21 tleJei-.ifes from th.it county he will be renominated. The weak spot. :i2:iin.st Sieele's mnoniination is Miami couniy. If Siutesmnn had a solid del- ation back of him from his home coun'.y the chances of liea'fin would be much better.
