Plan is Sprung by the Crlm and Cory Forces— Convention to Meet Again Sept. 1. The 47th district senatorial convention has taken another adjournment. It met at Emmetsburg last Wednesday and after balloting all-day adjourned In the evening until Sept. 1. The adjournment was carried by the votes oi Clay, Palo Alto iuid Emmet counties, KosHUth and Dicninson opposing' It. The combination of counties forcing the adjournment suggested an understanding between the Orim and Cory forces, uid what the understanding is hat* do velopod later. They will leave it to the state central committee to choose between the two, and will ratify the do cision when the convention meets again. It Is extremely doubtful if the central committee will take any action n the matter. If it does not it is entirely possible that Crlm and Cory will adopt some siinpier means of deciding which shall take the nomination. What tho Don! IB. The following 1 report in tho State Register of Friday probably outlines the deal between the Grim and Cory 'orces: The members of the republican state central committee liaye been called upon by two of the candidates to settle the senatorial deadlock in the Forty- seventh, "Big Five," district, and to nominate a republican candidate to the state senate. After taking 4,700 bal- ots, practically without a change, the district convention, which has been In session at Emmotaburg, adjourned Thursday to meet again on the afternoon of Sept. 1. It was then apparent that the deadlock could not bo broken, and that the friends of each candidate, J. W. Cory of Clay, A. D. Clarke of Kossuth, and C. W. Crini of Emmet, vere in the field to stay. It was then that the friends of Mr. Dory and Mr. Grim agreed to refer the natter to the members of the republican state central committee and to rat- fy the action of the state organization at the adjourned session on Sept. 1. As hose two candidates control the dis- rlct convention, the man named by the tate central committee Is a sure wln- ler in the contest and will be the next enator from the " Big Five" district. Captain Clarke of Kossuth county is lot a party to the agreement. To bind the agreement among the lelegates a formal contract was drawn ind signed by representatives of each f the two candidates, binding their delegates to stand by the decision of he state central committee. This igreement does not limit tho coramit- ee, however, in its selection, and under he terms of the contract any one of the hree candidates may bo selected, or inother, wholly foreign to the contest, may be made the nominee. In any vent the two delegations are bound to tand by the result. At the last ses- ion, held Friday, Kossuth and Dickin- on counties voted against the adjournment, Palo Alto, Emmet and Clay ounties supporting the motion to ad- ourn. This action was largely due to he fact that the contract had already ieen agreed upon by the delegates as he best way out of the deadlock. There is some doubt on the part of ome politicians as to whether the state entral committee will take hold of the matter, as suggested by the district onvention. Chairman Hancock has neisted that the state central commit- ee would do nothing in any way which ould be judged as having bearing on he senatorial contest. It is claimed hat both Crim and Cory are Gear men, although this statement has been denied in some quarters. In any event he senatorial question may enter argely into the selection of the nom- nee if the selection is mudo by the tate central committee. The convention at Emmetsburg hus men one of the tnost peculiar ever held n the state, The convention first met n the latter part of July, More than 2,000 ballots were then taken without a jhange. An adjournment was then aken until Aug. 9. In the interim the hree candidates n greed to release their ielegates from their instructions. This md no effect, however, for when the jonvention again met there was no change, each delegation standing by he candidate for whom it had first roted. The Democrats Meet. The democratic county convention ivas held last Wednesday. The follow- ng delegates were chosen to go to Des Vloinos for the state convention today: hilipDorwoiler, O. B. Sarohett, S, E. doMahon, R. Berninghaus, J. W. Hinchon, Ed. Kunz, E. J. Murtagh, S. '. Burr, M, P. McDonnell, Carl Wauge, r. M. Moore, H. J. Thompson, J. H. Sheridan, Oscar Norman, Horace Mann, A. H. Nafus, S. E. Davenport, D, H. McGivney, E. G. Rich, C. D. Pet- ,ibone, J. A. Freeh, Henry F. Kunz, J. . Bonar, B. F. Guthrle. The democratic senatorial convention is not called for this district. It is vaiting for the republicans to get done, The delegates selected for it are: I. M. Finnell, T. F. McGovern, Alex. Car- jenter, Martin Rahm, S. Roupe, A. J. Jones, Tom Sherman, Ed. Kunz, Horace Mann, J. L. Bouar, A. H. Dorweil er, G. W. Newell. In This Senatorial District. Tuesday's Register says: It is likel ihat the republican state central com mittee will refuse to interfere inasmuch as but three counties' delegates agreed to it, the others protesting. It .s possible that the contest will be re [erred to a primary election. The names of Senator A, B. Funk, R. M Husband Dr. Chas. McAllister an mentioned as possible compromise can d! dates in the adjourned convention p Sept. 1, if it becomes evident J. W Cory, C. W. Grim or A. D. Clarke can not be nominated. Emmetsburg special to State Leader It is likely the republican central com tnittee will decide to hold a primary election in the 47th senatorial district, the " Big Five," in order to secure a nomination. The sessions of the eena torlal convention already held here have demonstrated that little hope exists of breaking the deadlock. If primaries are ordered and the matter is settled by Sept. 1, it will force Clarke out of the race, as he has but one county behind him. State Register: The Register believes that it will be very bad policy for the republican state central committee to attempt to decide who shall bo nominated for senator in tho tl Big Five" district. Tho republicans of that district should nominate their own candidate, and that is the only way by which it can be assured that the republicans of the district will support the nominee. The state committee has no jurisdiction in the matter, could not be expected to rise above the prejudices of the members of the committee, and the republicans of Iowa can not afford to have that sort of bosslsm established In the state. Let the district convention "draw cuts," or nominate in any way that a nomination can be made by Its own members. Tho Dos Moinos Capital of Monday has n-half column discussion of the situation, in which is the following: Ills clearly evident that if the state central ommlttee should take a hand the result would bo unsatisfactory to the district. Politicians generally concede that the best thing now is to get the three candidates to agree among them selves on a new man. There would be no difficulty now In making the nomination were it not for the candidates, who continue to demand that their county delegation stand by them, and continue to assort that neither one of their present opponents v shall be the nominee. In a majority ot the counties the candidates selected their delegates, which is often an unfortunate thing, ind often causes embarrassment. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Jas. Taylor goes to Chicago this vvook.

STORM LAKE, Iowa, Aug. 7.—S'toror Lake gets it name from the beautiful sheet of water upon which It Is situated* Its population is about 2,100 and at present has but one railroad in operation, the Illinois Central. The lake is about five miles long and three miles broad. Its average depth is 12 feet. This year the water ia two feet higher than it has been for several years. During high water the lake has an outlet, but in ordinary times there is none. The border of the lake is almost destitute of native timber, though trees have been planted near the northern shore. A brick walk Is being laid by the city near the beach. A small steamboat, a gasoline launch, :i sailboat and numerous smaller crafts iloat on the waters of the lake. The barren shores and shallow depth favor high waves in a moderate wind. The water Is not vdry clear. The lake brings numerous excursions to tho city. Sunday is tho great day for this business. Last week Sunday over a thousand people were here and yesterday a train of seven coaches full )f people came up from Sioux City. The lake boats take many to the southern shore where there is a resort called iho Casino which has billiard tables, a bowling alley, ice cream parlors, etc. An attraction yesterday was a joint discussion between Rev. Small, a hristiun minister, who has been conducting a revival here, and Rev. Olm- stoad, the local Unitarian pastor. They spoke on the merits and demerits of Universalism and had a drawn though good nalured battle. Tho-Sunday excursion coupled with he opening of the business places make the Sabbath about the same as any other day, only perhaps more of a loliday. Fast driving is tolerated on he principal street and no one seems o find any objections. Buena Vista college, a Presbyterian school, is located in the western part )f the town. It has one fine, large >uildlng and several dormitories. Rev. larvey Hosteller is president and is assisted by a corps of six or eight in- truotors. The town has excellent )ublic schools under the management of Supt. O'Donohue. The high school •oom is one of the pleasantest I have ver seen. The room is tastily papered, s adorned with fine pictures, excel- ent oasts of Washington, Scott and •Shakespore and contains a good piano. When the question of more state nor- nals comes up in the legislature Storm "lake will be heard from. This year two railroads are building nto Storm Lake. Tho M. & St. L. is otning from the north via Estherville, Spencer and Sioux Rapids. The C. M. & St. Paul is building an extension rom Rockwell City, having purchased he Des Moines Northern & Western , ivhich runs from Des Moines to Rockwell. Tho Milwaukee paid at the rate f $100 per acre for taking a diagonal trip off the end of a farm two miles rom Marathon. Land in this country s held at $40 to $80 and $100 per acre. A big row among the railroads was nstitnted by the attempt of the Mil- vaukee people to cross the proposed 'ai'ds of the M. & St. L. Early one Sunday morning and apparently with' mt authority to do so, a Milwaukee orce laid their track across the disputed territory. Later the M. &. St. j. hands tore up the Milwaukee track. Janes from each road appeared and tonfliot was imminent. The county .ttorney and sheriff appeared and or- ered off both contestants, The Milwaukee has finally allowed the M, & t. .L. to lay its yard tracks and will lontest the matter In the courts. Pew, if any, railroads make so much, noise at stations as the Illinois Central nd as the road passes through the center of the town, it becomes some- ,htng of a nuisance. Besides the usual ong whistle at the approach of a station the I. C. R, R. engine gives four short oots as it nears the station. This means, " Is the track clear?" The operator then lowers a sign If it Is day and changes signals of light if It is night, The engineer responds by two short toots signifying '•! see." This system is to prevent collisions between stations, but added to the continuous ringing of the engine bell it makes altogether too much racket.
