Judge Quarton was allowed to name his own delegates to the judicial convention, and resolutions Instructing the congressional delegates to vote for Dolliver "first, last and all the time" were passed without a dissenting vote, and with cheers. The temporary organization, which was made permanent, was Samuel Mayne, chairman; H. H. Fellows, secretary. The committees reported early, and the convention adjourned before dinner. There is a slight discrepancy in the list of delegates to the state convention as given in the official credentials and as reported by the committees, but it is unimportant. Following are the delegates as officially accredited: State convention: A. D. Clarke, chairman; GardnerCowlee, S.JX. Way, J. F. Schaible, Geo. C. Call, J. W. Wadsworth, M. Starr, G. M. Parsons, C. J.

Hutchison, E. H. Clarke, H. H. Fellows, C. W. Goodwin, W. C. Danson. Resolutions endorsing President McKinley, Gov. Shaw, and the republican management of affairs generally were adopted. The county central committee was re-organized with R. B. Warren chairman, and township committeemen as follows: First ward, E. Tellier; Second ward, W. P. Jones; Third ward, Geo. Hackman; Fourth ward, W. C. Danson; Burt, H. B. Hallock; Buffalo, Aug. Shrader; Fenton, M. Weisbrod; Greenwood, S. Mayne; German, J. M. Grothouse; Germania, L. F. Clement; Harrison, V. S.

The republican state ocnvention meets in Dubuque, Sept. 1. Following are the offices to be filled and the candidates thus far mentioned as collected by the Cedar Rapids Republican: Secretary of state—Dobson, Seventh district candidate for second term; no opposition. Treasurer of state—Herriot, Ninth district, candidate for third term; opposition candidate, H. C. Haoberle of Deleware county. Auditor of state—Merriam, Third district; Hartshorn, Tenth district; Allen, First district. Judge of supreme court—Deemer, Ninth district, candidate for second term; no opposition. Clerk of supreme court—Jones, First district, candidate for second term; no opposition. Reporter of supreme court—Salinger, Tenth district, candidate for second term; no opposition. Attorney general—Remley, Second district, candidate for third term; opposition candidates; Temple, Eighth district; Simms, Ninth district. Railroad commissioner—Mowry, of the Fifth district; Coleman, Eighth district; Sammis, Eleventh district. Railroad commissioner (to fill vacancy,)—Palmer, First district; appointed by governor to filj vacancy and candidate for first nomination. The main contest in the convention will be over the state auditorship for which there are three candidates, representing as many sections of the state. Allen is an ex-representative. He is a man of 40, a lawyer and businesss man of good standing. He hails from southeastern Iowa. Merriam is also an ex- representative. He is a newspaper man and has been a popular member of the lower house, serving as a member of the investigating committee whose report brought about the state board of control. He represents northeastern Iowa. Hartshorn is an older man than either of the others. He has been a state legislator and has held a federal position in Washington. He has a record as an old soldier. The three men have been canvassing the state with considerable industry. It is note likely that other candidates will appear to contest the nomination with them. The railroad commisionership is a place of much importance and will be eagerly sought after. The candidates are three in number, widely separated, representing southwestern, middle eastern and northwestern Iowa. Coleman is a prominent horticulturist, Mowry is a prominent farmer and Sammis is one of the brightest young attorneys in the state. State Central Committee. State Chairman McMillan will resign at the coming state convention. Nearly all the bold-over members of the state committee are candidates for the chairmanship, or at least, have been mentioned in connection with the office. The hold-over members are: Firet district—H. O. Weaver, Wapello. Fifth district—W. D. Lee, Toledo. Sixth district-N. E. Kepdall, Seventh district—S. M. Leach, Adel. Tenth district—J. T. Drug, Stratford. Of these hold-overs Weaver, Kendall and Leach are regarded as available for the chairmanship. Lee is a postmaster and naturally would not want to be in charge of a state campaign, although he would make a most admirable chairman, being conservative and strong. Three of the present members whose terms expire will be candidates for reelection. These are: Third district—C. H. Hancock. Fourth district—Thos. H. Green. Eighth district—J. H. Burroughs. Of these Mr. Hancock and Mr. Burroughs would not object to being elected chairman at the same time. The three other members of the state committee whose terms expire and who will not be candidates for re-election are: Second district—J. M. Kemble. Ninth district—I. M. Treynor. Eleventh district—H. G. McMillan. There are a number of candidates for the places on the committee that these men will vacate. Charles Phillips of Maquoketa has been mentioned for the Second district member, and Davenport is understood to have some aspirants. There is no definite information as to how many candidates will appear. James Gllmore of Stuart is mentioned for the Ninth district member of the committee. There are no doubt oth" ers. For the Eleventh district member, the prominent candidates are E. H. McCutcheon of Ida county and A. C. Smith, now deputy secretary of state, 'of Storm Lake. Some regard C. H. Hancock of Dubuque, and S. M. Loach of Adel as the most formidable candidates for the chairmanship. Weaver is said to bo averse to taking the office as it will compel him to leave a lucrative law practice for the time being. In the Congressional Field. Robt. G. Cousins is renomlnated in the Fifth by acclamation, and Lot Thomas won out in the Eleventh after a bitter contest. Pete Hepburn is re- nominated by acclamation in the Eighth. Following are the uncontested districts: Third district—Col. D. B. Henderson. Sixth district—J. H. Laoey. Seventh district—J. A. T. Hull. Tenth district—J. P. Dolliver. Those whose nominations will be contested are: Fourth district—Thos. Updegraff. Ninth district—A. L. Hager. Those who are not candidates for re- nomination are: First district—S. M. Clark. Second district—Geo. M. Curtis. In the First district it looks as if the republicans have made up their minds to nominate Thomas Hedge of Burlington. His chief competitor has been Judge Stutsman of the same city, Senator Bell of Washington county has "pulled off" his own county, but no more. Hedge is said to have enough votes to nominate him. In the Second district the situation is mixed. Congressman Curtis some time ago wrote a letter saying he would not stand for renomination. He reached that decision, it is understood, on account of postofftce and other quarrels in his district. • He has large business interests and has no love for political squabbles. Maj. Rumple of Iowa county has been talked of for the nom- nation. The Davenport Republican wants some one from Davenport, who can carry Scott county. But there seems to be a growing sentiment for the renomination of Curtis, in spite of his letter of declination. It may result in that. Curtis has made a good congrssman. In the Fourth district everything seems to be quiet, although the western counties are continually talking for a western man. The eastern counties are said to be loyal to Updegraff. The contest in the Fourth may become interesting. In the Ninth district Congressman Hager is being pressed hard, but his friends are still confident. His opponents are H. G. Curtiss of Atlantic, a prominent lawyer, and H. W. Byers of Harlan, ex-speaker of the house of representatives. In Pottawattamie county they are talking of J, H. Saunders, a rising young lawyer and politician, as a compromise candidate, while others think that Lieut. Gov. J. C. Milliman would make a good dark horse. The lieutenant governor has become one of the most popular men in Iowa politics. He lost an arm in battle and his record is good throughout. FRUIT of all kinds. was never nicer...
