At Adjournment Last Night the Vote Stood Substantially RS It Did At the Beginning. The senatorial convention at Emmetsburg adjourned last night without nominating a candidate. The convention met yesterday morning and the balloting was unchanged from that of last week. During the day Dickinson county threw five voti-s to Clarke, which would have stayed for him if ho could have secured enough more to nominate. That was tho only change of tho day of uny signiflciinco. All the other throwing about cut no figure. Senatorial itiatlcrs wore clearly uppermost yesterday. Clay, Palo Alto and Emmet counties are against Cummins and intend to nominate a candidate who will be for Gear or Dolliver. That will cut some figure in the final break. Last night the street talk was that Clarke had tho advantage. Neither Grim nor Cory, however, show any signs of breaking, and a nomination cannot bo made until ono of the three candidates quits. Tho vote stands, Clarko 16, Cory 16 and Crim 8. .Last Week's Session. The first meeting of the senatorial convention at Erametsburg opened Thursday morning at 11 o'clock, at which time a temporary organization was perfected with Lawyer Francis of Spirit Lake in the chair, S. X. Way secretary, and A. S. Ortusby assistant secretary. Tho first ballot was taken at 1:30 o'clock, which showed Palo Alto county standing with Clay for Cory, and Dickinson standing with Emmet for Crim, giving Cory 16 votes and Crim 13. Kossuth gave 11 to Clarke. Until Friday noon some 1,878 ballots were thrown, all of which were substantially tho same. Kossuth at one time put Cory up to 20 votes, and put Crim up to 19. Emmet put Clarke up to 17 for several ballots, but no one expected a break at any time and this casting about attracted but little attention. The situation was a deadlock from start to finish, and no one had any suggestion to offer that seemed to meet the situation. After dinner, Friday, the Dickinson delegates suggested an adjournment. Emmet and Kossuth fell in and tho convention adjourned until yesterday morning, Clay and Palo Alto voting against it. The situation in Clay and Palo Alto was this: Both had eight votes and a representative is to bo nominated today. E. P. Barringer of Palo Alto is to be the nominee with Clay's assistance and in return Palo Alto was for a Clay county man for the senate. While firmly for Cory, however, the Palo Alto delegates were second choice for Crim and he understood this. Whenever Palo Alto could be released from Cory it would nominate Crim and this made the Crim men very certain of winning and very unwilling to enter into any compromise. But Palo Alto could not and would not leave Cory until he said so, and tenacity is one of Bro. Cory's strong points. The situation in Dickinson and Emmet was even more peculiar. These two counties and Osceola form a representative district, Osceola got the senator in the "Big Four" district west of us, and wanted to throw the representative to Emmet and leave Dickinson out, If this were done Cory would have carried Dickinson and won the nomination. The Dickinson people did not want this to happen and so persuaded Emmet not to take tho representative but to stand for the sena- torship and give Dickinson the representative. This tied Diciflnson to Emmet absolutely, although the Dickinson delegates were willing 1 at any time to nominate Clarke, and very much preferred him to Cory, Into this situation was injected a little United States senatorial preference which prevented some combinations and suggested others, each alike impossible from the situation already outlined. Clay, Emmet and Palo Alto were none of them for a Cummins candidate, while Dickinson was, Dickinson was the only Cummins county in the district, although ardently supporting Mr. Grim, a pronounced anti- Cummins man. No committee on resolutions was appointed, but it was evident that if resolutions were adopted on the senatorial s ty would be I TRUTH ABOUT AGOTAIDO OTHER POLITICAL, MATTERS. Notes oti County Politics—As to ttol- llYer—AlKOim Must be Modest. The Burt Monitor offers a timely suggestion for the consideration of the county convention in the following: As a matter of good politics the resnlt of ttte election of two years ago should not, and probably will not, be forgotten. Algona has the representative, and the balance of the ticket should be scattered. When it comes to placing men in nomination, any candidate outside of Algomi—granting that their qualifications are equal—will stand a much better show, Anybody has a right to run for office, but geographical locution is going to cut considerable ice this fall. It will bo safer to gamble on the chances of candidates from outside points than on the chances of those from Algona. County Politics. Fred. Mleho of Swea City, a stalwart and genial giant, Is out for sheriff. The Wesley News Intimates that Wesley will not present a candidate for county treasurer, H. S. Dailey of WhiUemoro is out for sheriff. He is a brother of A. P. of Algona, and a genial and well known resident of the west side. The Champion giyes him a complimentary notice. A big list of old neighbors and friends in Swea township have signed a request to C. O. Eokholm to come out as a candidate for treasurer. Mr. Eckholm is a resident of Swoa, although now in Algona educating his children. As to Dolllver. Sheldon Mail: Calhoun county lends a lift toward launching the Dolliver boom for the sonatorship.' Jonathan doesn't have to get into the race; he is already in it, put there by his friends of his congressional district and the state at large. Monticollo Express: In two of the northwestern counties resolutions have boon introduced and passed with enthusiasm advocating the election of Congressman Dolliver. There may be such a thing that enough of 'the legislators will be unpledged to make it possible to nominate some man who is not an avowed candidate. In eastern Iowa it is the general impression that Gear will be his own successor, and if he falls it will not bo because of the strength of Cummins, but because of the strength of the uninstruoted branch of the assembly. Cedar Rapids Republican: During the past week the prominent element in the Iowa senatorial situation bas boon Congressman Dolliver. Two counties In the Tenth district, Calhoun and Humboldt, have practically brought out Mr. Dolliver for the sena- torship. The Fort Dodge Messenger, the Algona UPPER Digs MOINES, the Carroll Herald and the Webster City Tribune are practically Dolliver papers. The Des Moines papers .which are supporting Mr. Cummins are treating Mr. Dolliver as an announced candidate. The Burlington Hawkeye and the Creston Gaxette, which are most conspicuous newspaper supporters of Mr. Gear, profess to bo satisfied witb the new developments in the Tenth district. 1'olltlcul Notes. Delaware county will adopt the primary election system. Crawford county adopted a ringing resolution for Gov. Shaw for a second term. It is a deserved compliment from his homo county. For the fifth or sixth time since its adoption 12 years ago, the republicans of Calhoun county have emphatically declared in favor of retaining the primary system of nominating officers, MONEY to loan at 5 per cent, interest.

The Other Shoe la Merely a Brigand, Otit for What Plunder He Can Secure. Prof. Kiiapp Hiis Been In the Philippines and Tells Much of Inter* est About the Situation. Prof. Knapp, at one time president of the state agricultural college, and well known at farmers'institutes at Algona, has in late years been in the Philippines, China and other eastern countries. In the Christian Advocate he gives from his personal knowledge of facts an answer to a letter written by Senator Hoar. Prof. Knapp's letter will bo read with interest. He says: 1. The assumption that we are try- Ing to impose a government on the Filipinos without their consent cannot be maintained in the light of the following facts, perfectly authentic and easily proved: (a) Aguinaldo and his voluntary following represented at the beginning of hostilities less than one* tenth of the territory of tho Philippine islands, and never had oven nominal control over more than two- sevenths. The people of the other nine-tenths of the territory were opposed to him and his ambitious schemes, (b) Over 90 per cent, of the property interests in the one-tenth of territory within the provinces of his Tagalog supporters were opposed to him and his plan of government. They had not faith in his sincerity. , 2. Aguinaldo was a fugitive in Asia, and before he was allowed to return and organize a following he signed a written agreement with the officials of Iho United States government, consisting of four articles, two of which I recall: (a) That he would in all material respects be obedient to the authorities of the United States in the Philippines, (b) In case the United States elected to hold the Philippines that he, would do all in his power to bring the natives into harmony with his plan. This was stated to me by a responsible official who was present when this agreement was signed. 3. Arms and ammunition were furnished him under the terms of the agreement. 4. With American arms and support, it was easy for Aguinaldo and his followers to overawe the people without any weapons for defense. 5. Early in his career the so-called Aguinaldo government made sweeping 1 confiscations of personal and real property. I examined maps and plats of 130,000 acres of improved real estate in provinces adjacent to Manila which had been confiscated by him, and 'this was but a. small portion of the real estate thus seized. In addition to wholesale confiscations foreign owners were not allowed to visit their estates fn the country without paying heavy tribute for the privilege. 6. The high toned declarations for a free government by Aguinaldo have been mainly formulated to influence American public opinion. In reality his government has been extremely despotic and tyrannical. 7. From the first there has been no effort apparent on the part of the Aguinaldo government to make amicable adjustment with the United States. The insurgents believed they could easily defeat the American forces, at least they openly asserted it, and hold- Ing this delusion,they did not want any amicable arrangement. 8. Prior to the fall of Manila to have quietly withdrawn and left the Spanish army and 1 the foreign residents to their fate, after destroying the Spanish fleet, would have been an act of cowardice and inhumanity too infamous to be considered. Since the fall of Manila there has been no time when the American troops could have withdrawn without openly or covertly retreating before an insolent and aggressive foe. 9. Had the insurgents sought a peaceful solution of the differences, the United States could not have turned over the control of the islands to such aa irresponsible government without incurring a liability for heavy damages to foreign owners of property, 10. It has never been shown and can not be shown wherein the acquisition of the Philippines differs in principle from the acquisition of New Mexico. New Mexico was acquired as a sequence of war without the consent pf her • people, 11. The allegation that the Philippines have been acquired with the intent to govern them without the eon- sent of their people is a pure assumption, as unjust as it is unpatriotic. All the froth of turbulent rhetoric about violating the principles of Washington, and Jefferson arises from the false assumption that the insurgent government, under Aguinaldo, represents the people of all the Philippines. Once concede the fact that it was the purpose of Aguinaldo and his adherents to" npp the arms provided by the United, Sitii"« to force Tagalog domination, upon the people of North Luzon and upon the tribes which inhabit the other island, and the veil is lilted from Philippine life.
