The senatorial convention at Em- tnetsburg took 3,680 ballots, and adjourned until Aug. 9. The adjournment was generally acceptable, but no one seems to haVe any definite idea of what it is for. There was no time during the previous balloting when any delegation made any serious effort to name a second choice or to assist in reaching an agreement. It remains to be seen whether there will he a change during the coming two weoks. The convention reconvenes nt Emmetsburg. make a most efficient and obliging official. He will have the solid support of this section of the county, and is bound to make a decidedly interesting- campaign. Not Alone to Blame. Swea City Herald: Every republi' can is clamoring for nn equal distribution of the offices over the county. Well, that's a good plan, but the delegates in the coming convention who distribute them all In Algona or any other locality should not lay the blame on that locality. There Is too much fault found with the conventions by the men who do the work.

IB Nominated. The Clay-Palo Alto representative convention was held at Ruth von Friday and E. P. Barringer was nominated for representative by acclamation. He carried Palo Alto, naming both senatorial and representative delegations. Cory named both delegations in Cluy, and the deal between the two counties to divide honors is said to be in writing, making Cory's strength as well as Barringor'e iron clad. Mr. Barringer is an able man and ho will be a vigorous worker in the legislature. Tho Jjocnl Seiintorshlp. Spirit Lake Beacon: This is one of the most stubborn legislative contests the state has known. Armstrong Journal: The United States senatorial situation has nodoubt more to do with the deadlock than the state sonatoi'Bhip. West Bend Advance: A few of the delegates changed their votes for a short period on Wednesday, but they knew it was safe and they never meant it. Spencer News: It is hoped that something will transpire by which the deadlock may bo broken, but how or in what way it is likely to occur no one seems to have any definite idea. Estherville Democrat: Mr. Critn's nomination, it is said, is almost certain when the break comes, as Mr. Clarke's delegates are favorable to Crim, as are also Cory's delegates on second choice. Sheldon, Mail: No matter what finally happens, the district is not at all likely to have as industrious or popular or able a senator as it has had during the three terms of Abe Funk's splendid service, West Bend Journal: As yet no candidate has made any gain, although Kossuth and Dickinson counties indulged in throwing a few complimentary votes around promiscuously, but at no time with the intention of nominating. Estherville .Republican: Mr. Crlra seems to be the logical candidate, and the. least objectionable to the other candidates, and it would seem that he must surely win if Dickinson county does not forsake him, which is not at all probable.

A letter from Horace Mann notifies THE UPPER DES MOINES that he will be In Kossuth this week to enter Into the heat of the campaign. He says: "I am loaded for the state campaign and you fellows will have occasion to include someone else than Gear & Co. in the senatorial situation before tho close of the canvass." Mr. Mann's coming will serve to brace up the Courier and to line up the opposition forces, and must be taken into account by the republicans. We judge he will make a close speaking canvass of Kpssuth, As to Dolllver. State Register: The Register has a greater admiration for Mr. Doliiver than ever before. It has at all times stated that Mr. Dolliver has a right to be a candidate for senator in his own interest, Charles City Intelligencer: The sentiment in this county as between Gear and Cummins is decidedly in favor of Gear but there is a strong undercurrent of public sentiment in favor of either Dolliver or Shaw. Monticello Express: The supporters of Mr. Cummins have about concluded to no longer veil their feelings toward Congressman Dolliver and Gov, Shaw. And the first thing they know they will find themselves In open hostility to the field. Carroll Herald: Calhoun county republicans have passed a resolution favoring Congressman Dolliver for senator if he shall enter the race. That shows about how the republicans of the district stand on the question. If Dolliver should enter the race there isn't a man In the state, In the district or out of it, who would give him the least trouble. There are some people out of the district who do not relish this sort of a situation, but It is their misfortune, not ours, Geo. Holloway In the field. Coming on the heels of A. J. Berryman's candidacy for qounty treasurer is the announcement that Geo. F. Holloway of Bancroft will stand for sheriff. Bancroft Register says: Mr, {Jo> loway has been a resident of Kossuth county for over SO ye,»rs and has, a yery extended acquaintance over the count and innumerable friends who will we' jgopse the opportunity to pujju word lor his success. r §e was Mr. and Mrs. Chas.

MONEY to loan at 5 per cent. A. D. OfcARjna & Co. MPNBV to, Joan at & percent, interest. Fully 2,000 people celebrated at Kanawha Saturday. They came from Hampton and Belmond on a special train of eight coaches, the first to invade that virgin prairie, from Brltt and Clarion, Goodel, Cor with, and all the country round. It was a sort of a Fourth of July occasion with two brass bands, a ball game, plenty of pop, peanuts and lemonade, speeches and a bowery dance. Geo. C. Call was general master of ceremonies, and his duties were lightened by the watchful care and active assistance of Marsh Stephens, who makes Kanawha hie home at present. The Iowa Central was represented by Vice President Morse of New York City, C. W. Huntlngton of Marshalltown, superintendent; J. N. Tlttemore of Mai-shalltown, acting general manager; and Geo. W. Seevers of Oska- loosn, general counsel. Messrs. Morse, Tlttemore and Soevers made short speeches, Geo. C. Call an address of welcome, and a young man from Goodel spread the eagle's wings over Hancock and adjoining counties. It is worthy of note that the exercises were held in a lumber shed as long and 20 feet wider than the new one in Algona. E. N. Bailey was down from Britt. He began his career as a farmer on one quarter section of the land the town is on. It was from the Inspirations he got there that hie budding aspirations as a newspaper man unfolded. He says himself that he wns a poor farmer. It is evident that he knew a good piece of land, for a fairer section never lay under the sun. South Hancock is a beautiful country. The Boone river has a half dozen heads, and a half dozen creeks run side by side at proper distances to give the land between a gentle roll and perfect drainage. Kanawha lies 22 feet above one of these Boone rivulets sloping away in all directions, and the thoughtful farmer who owned it had put a grove and orchard in the right place. The owners of the best lots get apple trees well loaded. Kanawha boasts that it has had a new building every other day since it started. A. G. Seastream of Algona owns one of the largest stores, J. F. Nlcoulin has built an office for the Record, W. H. Baker of Cresco has a harness shop, the Johnson implement ware house is very large and well built, and B. F. Reed owns one of the best vacant lots and talks of building. Three large elevators go up at once, work has begun on the new depot, a lumber shed to be 40 feet longer and 20 feet wider than Algona's new one Is arranged for, and the contract is let for a hotel to cost $4,QOO above the foundation. Kanawha Is 10 miles from Clarion, 12 miles from Britt, 14 miles from Belraond, 12 miles from Corwith, and 11 miles from Goodell. It is in the center of the best farming country of Iowa, with no immediate prospect of any new town near it. Its future is sure. It will be one of the best trading points in these parts. At Grove & Son's there are still to bo had some splendid bargains in their closing out sale. GROVE & SON'S closing out sale furnishes the low prices on groceries, MONEY to loan at 5 per cent. A. D.
