The senatorial convention of the 47th district is to be held at Emmetsburg July 13, two weeks from tomorrow. It promises to be a very closely contested affair, with four candidates in the field as follows: Kossuth, A. D. Clarke; Emmet, C. W. Crlmnv, Palo Alto, M. L. Brown; Clay, John W. Cory. Mr. Clarke will have 11 votes, Mr. Grimm 14, Mr. Brown 8, and Mr. Cory 8. C. W. Grimm will be presented by Emmet without any local contest, and Dickinson will support him, as Emmet county will support Mr. Meyers of Dickinson for representative. John W. Cory won in Clay county on the fourth ballot, when the Lyons forces went to him to prevent Dr. McAllister from getting the delegation. In Palo Alto the convention has not been held, but it is conceded that M. L. Brown will be given a delegation. Mr. Brown had not intended entering the race, but has changed his mind at the last minute. What the outcome of a four cornered contest will be cannot, of course, be predicted. Mr. Clarke is as well known as any of the candidates, and from his long residence in this section is likely to be second choice of many delegates from other counties. There Is no reason why he does not stand an even or better than oven chance for the nomination. Gardner Cowies Wins. The caucuses in Kossuth have all been held but that of Rlvordalo township, which comes this afternoon, and the choice of delegates shows that Mr. Cowies will be nominated on the first ballot in the convention Friday.

He carries all four wards of Algona without contest and has besides the following township delegations: Sherman, Garfleld, Whittemore, Cresco, Union, Lotts Creek, Irvingtor,, Plum Creek, Burt, Portland, Germania, Lincoln, Ledyard, Harrison. Other north end delegations are for him and he has a tie vote in Sexton. There are 118 votes in the convention, 60 necessary to choice. Mr. Cowies wilt have over 80 votes.

He has done a big business in Algona, but has sold at too close margins, and has run steadily behind. His friends sympathize with him in his present situation. Now that the Algona band gets an established place, G, W. Cady's good work demands special commendation. He has been untiring for years in holding the boys to the standard of high grade music, and has never let down to catchy airs. Those who hear our band concerts hear the same grade of music that the great bands play, and hear some of it as well executed. Even the best traveling bands have rarely attempted the kind of music that our boys play. With its new start the Algona band will be easily recognized as in the front rank in the state, and much of the credit belongs to Mr. Cady. L. H, Millen announces his candidacy for the republican nomination for sheriff in this issue. It has been known for some time among his friends that he would be a candidate and it is already evident that he is going to have strong support.

He says his father is in rather failing health, but the rest of the family are well. Jay-E. Randall was married in Rock Rapids Monday and was in Algona with his bride yesterday on his way to Chicago to take the train to Portland, Or., to attend the national editorial meeting. It will be a pleasant honeymoon trip. Three of the Algona people attended the State Sunday School convention at Oskaloosa last'week, Milton Starr, Mrs, Grace Damon and Frank C.
