Cory as a possible senatorial aspirant from Clay county is the new political feature of the week. Mr. Cory used to be district attorney years ago, and is well known all over tbe district. Locally tbo situation is unchanged. It is likely that the convention to nominate a candidate for the legislature and to select delegates will be held the last of next month, not later than Juno 30. The canvas is on actively but S. X. Wny is the only announced candidate thus far. The names of Gardner Cowles, A. A. Brunson and Samuel Mayne are being discussed and definite announcements muy be expected next week. ;MANY EYES: JDo 3>Tot See as they should. Many others do not see so well as they CAN hK MADE TO SEE.

W. Cory for Senator. Spencer Reporter: This district com prises Kossuth, Emmet, Dickinson, Palo Alto and Clay counties. Senator Funk of Dickinson, who has so nbly represented the district for years, says he is not in tho race and does not want a renomination. Emmet county has at present two active candidates, and so long as this is true of course neither can hope for anything. A. D. Clarke of Kossuth, on authority of THEUPPKR DES MOINES, will get the solid support of his home delegation. Pulo Alto is out with a candidate, or candidates, for representative and hence is not in the race for senator. This brings us around to our home county. No one in Clay 'has announced himself as a candidate, at least he has not so informed the Reporter. There are, however, some prominent citizens who have been strongly talked by friends, but they luivo politely declined on tho ground of business affairs or health which would not permit. We have several strong men in this vicinity, anyone of whom would make an excellent senator; men of force, ability and sound judgment. Prominent among these is J. W. Cory, who would honor Clay and the district in that capacity if lie could be prevailed upon to accept. He is a loyal republican of the " true blue," a man who has made a success of his own business and possessed of good judgment in public affairs, he could be trusted with the interests of the people and would muke a strong- candidate. Mr. Cory is well known all over the district, with particular strength in Dickinson and Emmet besides his own county. Clay has been for some time satisfying herself with little or nothing, we have not boon getting our share, there is not a county in this district better entitled to recognition, now is an opportunity and by selecting the right man and giving him loyal support, which he will surely get, we should come close to success.' Way's name to the voters of the county for their favorable consideration. Polltfenl Jfotes. The first ballot in the Des Moines News senatorial contest was from a Des Moines insurance man, who voted for Jonathan P. Dolliver. Swea City Herald: Al. Adams of the Humboldt Independent endorses the candidacy of P. M. Barslou of Bancroft for representative and Ole Bracke of Gernmnla for matrimonial honors with Helen Gould. He thinks both movements are in good taste. Bancroft Register: Lew Millen. In charge of the county farm, was up 1 uesday on matters social and political We are informed that Mr. M. will be a candidate before the republican convention for sheriff. If chosen he would no doubt make a good officer. Bancroft Register: Hon. S. Mayne wont to Des Moines Tuesday morning to be present at the laying of the corner stone of the state historical build- Ing, If tho people would honor themselves and the county they will see to it that Mr. Mayne makes his residence in the capital city during tho coming session of the legislature. "Senator'Abe'Funk will not be a candidate for the renomination in his senatorial district," said P. E. Narey of Spirit Lake to a reporter for the Register Wednesday. " I have it from his own lips that he does not care to make the race again. That leaves the place open for the other aspirants of whom there are quite a number. I haven't an idea as to who will be the nominee, and it looks as though there was going to be a good hot contest." Lu Verne News: Austin C. Wllley of Algona was in Lu Verne Tuesday talking politics. Austin may be a candidate this full for the office of sheriff He resided in this vicinity for 12 years, and is well and favorably known to all and would undoubtedly make an excellent officer, and we believe he would receive the entire support of this end of the county. We will have more to say in regard to his candidacy later on. "lam one of the aspirants for legislative honors," said Capt. A. D. Clarke of Algona to a reporter for the Register, "Senator 'Abe' Funk has declined to enter the race for a renomina- tion, and I have announced myself as a candidate for the nomination in the senatorial district. L have been assured the support of my home county in the convention, and have hopes of winning, or else I should not be out for the nomination. There are five counties in this district, Clay, Dickinson, kmmet, Kossuth, and Palo Alto. Each may have a candidate before the thing is over, and the prospects are that a warm campaign may result before a nomination is made." SOME OLD SETTLERS DEAD.

His candidacy is worthy the serious consideration of the convention. Whittemore Champion: Mr. Way is the cashier of the Wesley State bank and a young- man of excellent business ability. He will probably put up a strong fight, us he has many friends over the county. Ledyard Leader: Mr. Way is a young man of excellent character and ability, and would serve as representative with credit to both himself and county. He is a true blue republican, and we predict for him a strong following in the convention. Wesley News: Elsewhere in this issue of the News will be found the announcement of S. X. Way, candidate for representative, who seeks the office at the hands of the republicans of Kossuth county. Though the News is nonpartisan and does not care to indulge in the business of booming candidates for nomination, it thinks that Wesley ought to, and especially at this time, be entitled to recognition. Bailey: A little bird told us that Stitz Way may be a candidate for representative over in Kossuth county. Those fellows over there who fight among themselves and then elect a democrat might do better by agreeing on Stitz and electing him. They would get a clear headed little fellow who don't chase rainbows or change his politics every year. He is a republican through and through and one of the brightest young men in northern Iowa. We hope he will make a canvas and get the nomination, and if he does he will be elected and make Kossuth county the best representative they ever had, and they have always had good men too. It Stitz gets » tent and goes around making speeches, we are going over with our drum corps and wake the echoes. The Titonka Topic of last week says: Mr. Way has been a prominent factor in county Interests for a number of years. He has been the prime mover in many of the substantial improvements of Wesley. He is vigorous in any work that he undertakes, he thoroughly understands the needs aud wishes of the Kossuth county people", and be has the ability which would make Kossuth the bpuse.

Kyes, who used to run a restaurant in Algona, and later owned the Thos. Kain farm in Portland. He was in the Blaclc Hills. The Mail says: This morning Mr. C. P. Kyes, an old gentleman 67 years of age died at 5 o'clock from a paralytic stroke at Clark's ranch, about 12 miles from this city. He leaves a wife, who was with him at the time of his death, and a son, W. A. Kyes, who resides in this city. DEATH OF DAVID FIKES. David Pikes, son-in-law of L, Witham of Fourmile Creek, died recently in Los Angeles. He had been in the Klondike and came back with a severe rheumatic attack. He was an early settler in Humboldt. He went from Humboldt to the war, and in 1870 moved to Fort Dodge and in 1873 to Storm Lake. The Pilot gives a brief sketch of his life: Mr. Pikes was a resident of Montgomery county, New York. He came here in 1878, and in company with C. N. Jorgenson conducted a hardware store for a number of years. Selling out he went to California, where he engaged in some enterprise that proved a failure. He was taken witli inflammatory rheumatism and while ill in a hotel at San Francisco, among total strangers and in a delirious condition, an Odd Fellow's badge was found upon his clothing, and from that moment he was among friends and brothers, receiving every possible care and attention, and when able to be moved was brought back to Storm Lake, carefully nursed all the way by members of the order. He partially recovered his health, conducted a billiard hall for a while, and then opened up a tin shop, and later ran a hardware business in company with Win. Ullery until he returned to California. He made friends easily and was a mechanical genius, there being apparently no Hmit to his ability in this direction Poor health and a love of change, however, prevented him from being as successful as he might otherwise have . His age at his death was 58 THE Mason City Brick and Tile Co makes the best drain tile and hollow building tile in the world and lowest prices. F. O. B. any station.
