There will be a delegate convention of the republicans of Iowa held in the city of Des Molnes, Iowa, on Wednesday, August 2, at 11 o'clock a. m., for the purpose of placing in nomination a candidate for each of the following officers, viz.: For governor, for lieutenant governor, for judge of the supreme court, for superintendent of public Instruction, for railroad commissioner, and for the transaction of any other business that may properly come before a republican state convention. The ratio of representation will be as follows: One delegate atlarge from each county, and one additional delegate for each two hun dred (200) votes or fraction of one hundred (100) or over cast for Hon. Oeo. L. Dobson. republican candidate for secretary of state at the general election held November 8, 1808. The representation for the counties comprising our Senatorial district will be as follows! Clay, 8j Dlckenson, 6; Emmet, 7; Palo Alto, 8;Kossuth, 11. ANNOUNCEMENT. 1 am a candidate for representative from Kossuth county, subject to the decision of the republican convention. S. X. WAT. THE supreme court affirms Judge .Quarton's decision that Louie Lange pay $200 for libel. Louie called a jus- tlce of tbe peace in his bailiwick a thief and a robber, by implication at least. This is the case that Judge Hel- eell tried and Judge Quarton decided which so much excited Louie during last fall's campaign. It was affirmed although no argument was submitted in behalf of the appellee- JUDGE CARK of Des Moines has been in Washington. He finds Geo. E. Roberts in the best of health and a very decided expansionist and annexationist. On the other hand M. D. O'Connell is neither an expansionist nor annexation- let and he has been compelled to come home on account of sickness. THE State Register reporter in a column of political news makes this statement: "By some It has been predicted that when Senator Gear should say the word, Congressman J. P. Dolliver would come out as a candidate and draw the district away from Cummins, so as to deliver it ultimately to the senator." If Congressman Dolliver were an inconspicuous figure in Iowa politics who happened to have a local pull, there might be an excuse for such an Intimation. But what does the Register expect to accomplish by it, when Mr. Dolliver is at least as public a figure as either Senator Gear or Mr. Cummins, and when his candidacy if it should be announced would at once justify itself in the eyes of the whole country? What reason does the Register or any state paper have for suggesting that Congressman Dolliver would become a candidate for United States senator merely to be a cat's paw for Senator Gear or anybody else? There ought to be a limit to such petty insinuations when the prominent republicans of Iowa are being considered in connection with a great office, to which they are entitled to aspire. There are thousands in Iowa who would like to see Congressman Dolliver chosen senator. They may be able to present hh name and they may not. If they do he will be a candidate in his own right, and his support will not be " delivered" to anybody because in the first place no one can " deliver" it and in the second place because he of all men would not attempt to " deliver" it. to be accepted td prove the contrary. Mr. Cummins has shown himself entirely honest in politics, and has never attempted to gain a point by denying his record. It is undoubtedly unfortunate for him now that he identified himself so closely with the Boles campaign and with democratic politics in Polk county. But Mr. Cummins is a republican, THE Odebolt Chronicle prints a report to the effect that Gov. Shaw wants a preacher /or president o* the state university. Them is no foundation for tt. Gov. Shaw Is one of the most level beaded members of the board of regents and takes the broadest view of what the university ought to expect and ought to secure in its next president. Gov, Shaw will insist upon a man of the highest moral character,, but the board is a unit on that point. IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. The Northwestern has let the contract for widening Its grade from Rolfe to Havelock, no one knows what for. The town of Hawarden has passed an ordinance prohibiting the use of barbed wire within the corporation. Sheldon has had such an ordinance for some time. Estherville Vindicator: More Kossuth notoriety. With dog suits, and horse suits, and blue sky suits, and suicides, etc., etc., all eyes are turned on Algona ever. In Webster City the assessed values of real estate under the new law have decreased $90,628and personal property $39,648, in spite of a big raise in full valuation of the property. The falling off is due to the change from a 33J to a 25 per cent, assessment. Britt News: H. A. Weigand of Algona has rented rooms over Way Bros. & Healy's drug store and will establish a cigar factory beginning the first of June. This will be a factory of much benefit to our city as he expects to employ several mechanics. A. H. Lungdon, our former Algo- nian, is superintending the work on the Milwaukee at Sac City. Tlie Sun says: Mr. Langdon's headquarters probably will be at Storm Lake and one of his.assistants will have immediate supervision of the work at Sac City. The Garner Signal says the prospect is good that Geo. C. Howard, the Titonka boomer, will have control of the laying out and sale of lots of fifteen new towns on the new line of the Minneapolis & St. Louis railway from New Ulna, Minn., to Storm Lake, Iowa. Ho knows how to boom a new town und under his management they will grow like Jonah's gourd. There is plenty of good fishing about the Dickinson county lakes, but the best hauls this week have been from Minnevvashta. This is the hike from which so many thousand fish were hauled early in the spring to keep them from smothering, find it was supposed the supply in that water would be much reduced, but it is said anybody can make a haul there right now. The catch is mostly pickerel a foot to fifteen inches in length, but 10 and 12 pounders have been taken. The Beacon says: Men, women and children stand on the shore, bait their hooks with almost any old thing and get immediate results. Many hooks baited simply with a flannel rag have hauled out fish by the dozen. DISTRICT OAMP MEETING.

Ole Braoke is back to Get-mania and fresh Irom the inspiration of eastern travel and incidents he writes a poem in honor of the soldiers' return. On some accounts THE UPPER DES MOINES would have expected his mind to dwell on love rather than war, but possibly the two are not so unlike as to affect the flight of his Pegasus. His poem is entitled "Greeting to the Soldiers" and was written for the reception at Germania, Friday: Citizens, we are assembled To greet tho soldier volunteer, And 'moug them for their return safe, rejoice. Though foremost, thanks to God Is due That they are back among us here. To ofllcers and boys We bring our heartfelt welcome cheers. As was our country dear in danger Uood wishes from our hearts went alone Wherever you wore gone While wo in silence thought to start To take your place or share your danger.

The digger, or dredger properly, was run down from Sexton and an iron track had to be laid for it all the way. There are four gangs of about 15 dump cars each which are filled one after the other and run down a mile track and dumped along the grade. St. Benedict is a pretty spot, and the cluu-ch property lies just in the south edge of the town site. TOR MEMORIAL DAT. A Fitting Observance Sundnj- and Tuesday Next— Itev.

IT seems that 28' years ago Gov. Shaw was a member of the Monroe cor 1 net band and played an E flat tuba at the laying of the corner stone of the present capitol. The governor has had a remarkable career bet ween the laying of that corner stone and the laying of the corner stone of the state historical building. THE Ford bill, over which Gov. The odore Roosevelt has nearly had a break . with the Platt machine in New York, provides for taxing city franchises as real estate. For instance, if the street railway is worth $10,000,000 while its actual cars and equipment are worth but $2,000,000, there is $8,000,000 in the franchise which the Ford bill arranges to have duly assessed. Gov. Roosevelt will eign the Ford bill in spite of the great pressure on him, and has palled an extra session of the legislature to amend a few of its provisions. PEFFEB could have come back to republicanism and, not so mortally offended his brother populists if be bad kept still about tbe money question being practically disposed of. But wben be says there is no f urthor money igsue, he gives hie old partners a part- leg slap they will not soon forgive, M>. The Western Electric Telephone Company Mullen HJin Maunder— " Bide" Way Becomes Secretary. Next month T. A. Potter will be promoted to the general management of the Western Electric Telephone company, and B. C. Way, a brother of Thos. A. and S. X., will succeed him as secretary. Mr. Potter is one of the most genial telephone men in the business and "Bide" Way has his share of the Way talent fordoing things. The Britt News says: The company are putting in metalic circuits on all 'their lines, which is only the beginning- of the numerous improvements they expect to make this summer. They have several crews now a-t work in Minnesota and South Dakota, and they expect to add at least 600 miles of new line to this already great system. They have now in operation 5,000 miles of line, connecting 554 towns and cities in Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota. eaye tbat be did not' e eleot-iop of Gov.

Of course those who are bald or wear unbecoming wigs could be excused, although they really ought to take a section by themselves or sit clear back by the door.
