The Democrats, After Much Fuss and Feathers, Name a Ticket—The Third Partyltes. We clip elsewhere an Item from the LuVerne News about Algona's having held a county convention, and about the ticket being satisfactory to Algona. In another place in discussing the democratic convention the News says: "Be it said to the credit of the democrats, they have certainly gained an advantage over the republicans in the fairness with wtiich they have distributed their offices. Kossuth county is the largest in the state, and the day is nearly past when Algotta politicians can hope to control the public patronage entirely. If the other men chosen are as worthy as Mr. Lichty, whom we know to be in every sense a good citizen and competent business man, we confess our candid belief that the republican party of this county has work on its hands and had better get its coat off without delay if it hopes to land a victory." We believe that if Bro. Sinclair had attended the republican convention he would not have made the criticism he does, and that he will see its unfairness upon a casual review of a few facts. The prevailing idea seems to be that Algona exerted undue influence in dictating nominations. Now to begin with, no candidate who was nominated received more than three-fourths of the Algona vote. Although Lu Verne and nearly all the outside towns voted solidly, Algona split up on every nomination and the various delegations from town opposed each other squarely. How is it possible to charge any result to Algona, when she had but 16 of 99 delegates and they very much divided? Again the fact that Supt. Reed, Surveyor Telller, and Dr. Morse are residents of Algona is evidently taken as evidence that the candidates are not 'airly distributed, and the action of the lemocratic convention is compared 'avorably. But how is this due to Alona influence, when no one was suggested by an outside delegation for either office? We fail to see how any ust complaint can be made as to the •esidence of candidates, when every township was fully represented and no candidate was suggested from any of them for these places. Aside from these the republican, when this ticket is elected, will have .aken County Attorney Raymond from Liu Verne, Sheriff Sampson from Whitemore, and Clerk Grose from Bancroft, while we believe the board of supervisors is as fairly distributed in Wesley, ilamsay, Hebron, Lotts Creek, and "esco, as five members can be. With seven members a fairer representation can be secured. What is particularly unfair in this distribution of county offices? Certainly nothing so far as iuVerne is concerned. If there is a iown in the county that might be war- i anted in complaining it is Wesley, which has not had a county office since he oldest inhabitant, except a member of the board. But Wesley has always _iyen a reliable majority and the opinion of the Wesley delegates on the 'airness of the convention is given by ;he Reporter: "Every republican that was in Algona last Friday will work for the election of the ticket nominated that day." Again speaking of the ticket it says ' The ticket placed in the field by the > publican convention last Friday is ivithout doubt the strongest one Kos- mth county has ever had. The candidates are, with one exception, well ?nown to the people of this county, and 't will not be a question as to the olec- iion of the ticket only us to how large a majority it will be." Finally In the Field. For Treasurer L. CASS SMITH For Sheriff P. Q. PETTIBONE For Surveyor N, E. SHERIDAN For Coroner DR. HEVLIN T?m> CJiinprvInnvsi j C. H. LICHTY Foi Supervisor -j LARg JOHNSON The adjourned democratic county ionvention met Wednesday and completed a ticket. A strong effort had jeen made to get E. J. Gilmore to run for treasurer, but he declined, and L. C. Smith was nominated; Mr. Smith did not desire a nomination, but accepted it when forced upon him. P. G. Pettibone of Bancroft was named for sheriff over S. P. Cb.ristia.nson. Geo. Holloway, Boy McGelehie, and Wm. Leslie •eceived votes. N. E. Sheridan of Ban- iroft was uurned for surveyor, although ic got up and explained that he was 10 surveyor. Dr?. Keneflck and Walters were nominated for coroner, when Bro. Hinchon, who was not a delegate, whispered to a few, and Dr. Hevlin of Swea City was chosen. Lars Tohnson of Seneca and C. H. Lichty of uuVerne were chosen as supervisors. J. W. Sullivan was chosen chairman of ;he county committee. The ticket is made up of good men. VIr. Smith as recorder was an excellent official. Mr. Pettibone is a brother of i. D. and S. H. of Algona, Mr. Sheridan is an enterprising Bancroft land man, while both Messrs. Johnson and Lichty are well spoken of. The failure ;o name a candidate for county superin- ;endent leaves Miss Whitney the field against Mr. Reed. A Third Party Convention. Rev. Campbell, editor of the Prohibitionist at Des Moines, was in Algona Saturday. A prohibition convention was held in the afternoon of which no notice had been given. A few gathered ia,nd organised. R, J. Hunt was elected, urer. A county committee was named as follows: Mrs. David Mitchell, N. A. Pine, J. A. Freeh, Jas. Stow, Mr. Hopkins, Capt. Jeanson, G. Cowles, Mrs. Cheever Hudson, H. H. Hudson, Mrs. Dr. Garfleld, and Mrs. C. A. Ingliam. Dr. Hudson, N. A. Pine, and Mrs. Ingham were appointed to interview all candidates as to prohibition. In the evening Rev. Campbell addressed 25 or 30 people in the court house in favor of Rev. Mitchell. He was to preach at the Baptist church Sunday evening, but the arrangement fell through. _ USE White Swim flour.
