The delegates as a wrhole were new men. The casual on- ooker saw only a few of the battle- cared teteitons. The greatly Increased nfluence of the north end of the coutity Iso showed up strongly. Then, .too, Ithough there were several npmina- [ons to be made, there was nocombina- ion or slate, and each man won on a quaro contest. And lastly, although hat is not remarkable, one of the best ickots was put up that was over offered 0 the voters of Kossuth county. The whole 99 delegates were present, .hairman Haggard called to order at 1 o'clock, and F. M. Taylor was chosen hairman. The permanent organiza- ion included him with W. W. Alcorn nd B. B. Warren secretaries. Committees on credentials and resolutions were appointed. .Immediately after inner balloting began on candidates or treasurer. The first ballot stood: ipencer, 38; Harrison, 20; Chipnmn, 4; Angus, 17. Angus had on one vote 2, Chipnian 25, and Harrison ran up to 3, but Col.

But one ballot was taken on superin- endent, B. F. Reed receiving 72, and Mrs. A. M. Horton 27 votes. Two ballots settled the supervisors, ). C. Chubb getting 04, A. Fisher 27, i. S.

Morse for coroner like- vise. tVhero We Stand. The following resolutions were unanimously adopted: Resolved, By tlio republicans of Kossuth :ounty, in delegate convention assembled, hat wo reaffirm the principles of the ro- jublican party as enunciated by our national ind state conventions, and that we pledge )ur cordial support to the nominees of the party for state and county offices. The lemocratie party has once more demon- trated its incapacity to deal with thoso luestions whose wise management by the •opublican party during the past quarter of century has made the nation great and prosperous. It has shown again during its jf lease of power that its sole function n American affairs is to precipitate general •uin and distress, and that it is impotent and vacillating in the conduct of measures of relief. The desperate condition of our Inancial business and industrial interests n-ing national issues to the front as the Irst concern in the present campaign, and we denounce as worthy only of contempt ,he efforts of the democratic party of Iowa hrough its candidate for governor to eliminate and ignore these vital questions until such time as it can elect a democratic Jnited States senator and gerymandor Iowa with a view to future political domina- ,ion. Resolved, That the existing ftemporanco statutes having been of great benefit, wo 'avor their retention with such wise modifications as shall make them more effective n promoting temperance and morality. Wo indorse the declaration of the state convention on this question, and wo pledge our candidate for the legislature, in dealing with the question of relief for democratic localities, to onposo any measure of local option, as looking directly to the return of aarmful controversy and confusion to our now peaceful communities. Resolved, That in consideration of the great extent of our county territory, aud with a view to its more equitable representation on the board, we favor its division into seven supervisor districts at the earliest date allowed by law. Resolved. That we favor such legislation by the coming assembly as will give us an efficient and progressive road system, The Candidates. With one exception the men named by the convention are BO well known to all parts of the county that they need no introduction whatever, Mr, Sampson, Col. Spencer, and Dr. Morse are the only ones who have not already been elected pnco, and of these Mr. Sampson is the only comparative stranger. Supt. Reed, Surveyor Tellier, and Supervisors Chubb and Smith are the present incumbents. Claude C. Sampson was born in Blue Earth county, Minn., about 36 years •o, ou a farm. His father died at .cksburg in the army, and when about 17 he was compelled to strike out for himself, working his way through school at Yankton .S. D, He then took a homestead at Moody and farmed till about nine years ago, when he began with the John Paul Lumber company. In 1889 he came to Whittemore and took charge of the yard there. He has a family consisting of a wife and three children, is very highly regarded by all who know him, and if elected will give the office his entire time and attention. He made an excellent impression on the convention, and will on the voters as he meets them. It is a general opinion that he will make as good a sheriff »a the county has ever haa. Of Col. Spencer's qualifications to acceptably fill tlie treasurer's office Both- ing need he said. He has had all the office training needed, is strictly hon- orable In all deal, and his genial, whole- souled manner qualifies him to make one of the best treasurers the county has ever had- The coloftel received the largest majority when ho ran for the legislature ever given a republican in Kossuth, and if all signs don't fail will not be forgotten next month by his friends. THE UPPER DBS MOINES has BO often complimented Supt.' Keed on his efficient work as superintendent that it can say nothing new now. He has had the largest institutes in this part of the state, and the teachers have shown an enthusiasm in attendance and study which speake for excellent work in their schools. We believe no superintendent has been more deservedly popular with the teachers and tax payers of the county, and that the vote this fall will show it. The work done by the present bo- rd of supervisors in the interests of ch< ap- er and more permanent road work in the county has put Kossuth in the lead among the counties which want better rond», and the renomination of Messrs. Chubb and Smith means a continuation of the past year's policy. Under the contract system adopted, and with grades livid by the county surveyor, the county is getting some work that will be permanent. Both men have been economical and careful as members and their re-election will secure the services of two of the shrewdest and most capable business men in the county. As county surveyor Mr. Tellier has been well liked during his first term, and has rendered excellent service. For coroner Dr. Morse has every qualification. The ticket as a whole is as good as could be selected In the county, and that it will receive a cordial support is already certain. Convention Notes. B. F. Roed made an excellent speech in accepting his nomination. It made him friends. It was the largest, best natured, and most satisfactory convention over held in the county. It was Capt. Dodge who suggested getting the candidates for sheriff up on the platform. He thought that would beat nomination speeches. Goo. Platt withdrew from the field as soon as Col. Spencer was nominated, although he had a good chance. No votes wore cast for him. The Bancroft Register says: It looks as though the northern part of the county was in Minnesota when it comes to nominating candidates. However, we will redeem ourselves in November, p.nd if we can't get our particular man ...t the convention, we can aid the nominees by a larger republican vote than ever. Prof. Cliaffoo Withdraws. To the Editor: After carefully considering the matter, I have decided that it would bo difficult to perform, the duties of county superintendent, and at the same time retain the principalship of the normal and commercial school of A Igona, without injury to one or the other. In fact, I have become certain that while I should dislike to run for the office and be defeated, I should dislike much more to bo elected, and thanking the newspapers and the friends who have spoken kindly of my candidacy, I hereby withdraw my name.
