McKinloy and Prof. James A. Edwards of the Iowa Normal Monthly were the candidates for mayor. It was a red-hot election and tho minds of the judges were so intent upon it that they forgot to throw out last year's tickets before the opening of tho ballot box. When the polls closed and they started to count the votes they found this out. They therefore declined to count the votes and declared no election, leaving the 6"ld mayor in office. Both sides are red hot and are bound to have tho law on somebody. The Dubuquo Telegraph says: "Tho Epworth muddle and Mayor Durham's advantageous position recall a local mimic's story about tho light for tho mayoralty of tho city of Cork, Ireland. The factions couldn't agree and left it to the first man who should come to town in tho morning. This proved to be Barney Bralligan ' and him a ridin' a jackass.' When the situation had been explained to Barney ho quietly remarked: 'Well, byes, put the jack in tho stable, begob, and I'll bo tho mayor meself.'" Thos. B. Button, a wealthy farmer living near Rockford, Iowa, met a violent death Thursday night. He was walking on the railroad track during a blizzard and did not hear the approach of the train, which struck him with such force as to throw him some distance. When picked up he was dead. Seven trotting stallions are standing in Iowa with records better than 2:21, as follows: Allerton, 2:09-1, Incas, 2:141, Lockhart, 2:14J, Penant, 2:15, 2:18i, Nutwood, 2:18J and Sarco- boasts of a couple married a year ago in their 81st year. The name of the groom and bride were Stone. Both enjoyed the honeymoon and are living happy in each other's love at 82 and 93 respectively. Two old Stones rolled together at 81 beats tho Thistler-Bar- ton case." John S. Maxwell of DCS Moines wants a license law with the following conditions: " Saloons not closer to a school house-than tho other side of the moon. No saloon on any planet whore it is inhabitable. No saloon to bo nearer the surface of any sphere than where iron is in a liquid form. If tho saloon over comes back let it bo when the devil is lot loose for his final plague upon the earth. I saw a drunkard tonight who is robbing his wife and children of comfort, home, education and position." net, 2:204. More than half of these are direct decendants of Abdallah 15. SELEOTING THE DELEGATES. The Republican County Convention —KoBsuth Will lie Ably He-presented at DCS Mollies. Absolute harmony prevailed lu the republican county convention, held at tho court house last Friday afternoon. The meeting was called to order by County Chairman Doxsee, who stated its object, and tho convention got to work without unnecessary delay. Not all of the townships were represented, but enough sent delegates to show thalj even thus early in the campaign a proper amount of interest is manifest. A motion prevailed which selected S. C. Plait of Lu Verne for chairman and R. B. Warren for secretary. The temporary organisation thus secured, committees were appointed, by call of townships, on organization, credentials. and_delegates. The committee on organization reported recommending that the temporary organization be made permanent, and the report was adopted.

The public teat has been out of the captain's mouth since the republicans lost the house; but the mouth, all will be glad to know, has ever since remained in tho form and attitude that the teat had given it by more than twenty years of occupancy, and the motion necessary to make the treasury "give down" will easily be acquired again.

Boots, Shoes and Harnes Auditor Lyons is named for congress in the Ninth. The contest for the republican nomination in the Eighth district is already very warm. The brilliant Colonel Hepburn is in the field in dead earnest, and has a strong following. Some republicans, however, fear that the colonel's nomination would arouse the old fight. All admit his brilliancy and his splendid qualities as a man, but he is unfortunate in making antagonisms. The Des Moines Capital is for peace in the Eighth, and for more victories like the one last year in that district. Other candidates are: Speaker Mitchell, Geo. Van Houten, Senator Harsh and Senator Reynolds, all with strong and earnest friends. The vote of Council Bluffs in 1891 was 1,601 for Mr. Wheeler for governor, and 2,226 for Mr. Boies. The democratic majority was 625. At the city election Mr. Lawrence received 2,07fi, and Mr. Graham received 1,819. This result shows a republican gain of 882 votes. O. C. Tomlinson, the defaulting operator of tho Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern railway at Osago, has made a full confession of his guilt and promised to make the amount good. The funds were used in gambling, Alonzo P. Wood, 75 years old, died in Dubuquo last Thursday. He was a printer in Now York and Cincinnati, and in the latter city debated the tariff with Duff Green, the Louisville editor, He established the Iowa City Standard 50 years ago and the Dubuque Tribune in 1847, and was a contemporary and warm friend of Horace Groeley. He leaves unfinished a war history of Iowa, on which he has been engaged for many years. Postal Clerk White, who has run on the Milwaukee road from McGregor to Sanborn for the past 11 years, was arrested last week by a postal inspector and taken to Chicago for tampering with registered letters. • It is stated on good authority that the evidence against Mr. White is very strong, decoy letters having been found upon him when tho arrest was made. If guilty, as now seems probable, lie will go over a different road from the one ho has been so long running on. Someone c a'q report, which showed that tV '' 0 were no contests, and those persons \-esent- ing credentials were admitted asvlele- gatos. The committee on delegates to the state convention then brought in its report, which named the following persons: J. R. Jones, chairman; Ambrose A. Cull, John G. Smith, S. Mayne, Geo. E. Boyle, Z. S. Barrett, Geo. Lacy, W. J. Burton, Harvey Ingham. This completed the work before the convention, and adjournment followed. The delegation is a representative one, and Kossuth county's political and other interests will be well taken care of in their hunds. Just before the close of the convention E. Tellier offered the resolution which follows, and moved its adoption: Kesolved, By the republican delegates of Kossuth county in convention assembled, that we favor tho rc-uoniination of Gen. Benjamin Harrison for the presidency. There was a lull in the proceedings, and no second appearing, iv motion to adjourn followed. DIREOTOBS' MEETING. .frW.-v for the County Fair— Sept. 31, 2«, and 3!J the Date. Ten directors out of the 30 of the Kossuth County Agricultural society met as per adjournment at the secretary's office yesterday, and decided upon several important matters connected with the holding of the next county fair. Tho date fixed IB Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, Sept. 21, 22, and 23. The printing of the premium list was let to John Ford of tho Wesley Reporter, as per his bid of $1.25 a page for 2,000 copies, providing the executive committee finds ho has facilities for doing an acceptable job; tho soci. ety is to furnish the matter for the jobt Two other bids wore presented, bu- both higher than Mr. Ford's. The directors voted to set aside $550 for races, to bo divided as follows: For the 2:40 race, $100; for the free-for-all, $150; for a running race, $150, and for county races, $150, This is $50 in , excess of tho amount paid for racing last year, and is thought to be sufficient to insure success in that department. Judges were selected for tho various departments, and a few changes made in the premiums. B. F. Smith proposed a matter, which was adopted, and which will without doubt prove an interesting feature of tho fair. It is to give as premiums four silter cups as sweepstake prizes in the departments of horses, cattle, sheop, and hogs. The only condition necessary for entry is that tho animals shall be full-bloods. The plan has proved successful in other county and state fairs, and is likely to do so hero. It Should Be in Every House. J. B. Wilson, 8T1 Clay street, Sharpsburg, Pa., says he will not be without Dr. King's Now Discovery for consumption, coughs, and colds, that it cured his wife, who was threatened with pneumonia, after an attack of In grippe, when various other remedies and several physicians had done her no good. Ilobovt Barber of Crooksport, Pa., claims Dr. King's New Discovery has done him more good than anything he ever used for lung trouble. Nothing like it. Try it. Free trial bottles at' Sheetz.'
