A Satisflictory Outcome of the Long Struggle—Nominee Will Prove Agreeable to Ail. The 47th district senatorial conveh lion, after four sittings and 5,000 uneventful and uninteresting and unmeaning ballots, came to an end In a hurry, with plenty of excitement, and with a nominee who had not had a vote cast for him until the ballot was taken that nominated him. It was a curious situation at the last, with Kossnth sitting in a position to name either ol four men. It came about through the Dickinson county delegation finally do Ing what, it had biwn talking of doing for some time, namely, offering to name a Clay county candidate other than J. W. Cory. The situation Friday night was this: Kossuth and Emmet counties had shown a willingness to nominate Senator Funk, but the Dickinson delegates said he would not accept and would not nominate him, al- Lhough they were his close personal friends. The possibility that he might be nominated, however, forced the "Jory delegates to consider the suggestion of talcing a new Clay county man. During tho evening they arranged with Dickinson that Clay, Palo Alto and Dickinson should nominate Major Dheney of Spencer on the first ballot in ihe morning, Dickinson agreed with ihe single condition that it would vote 'or Grim if the ballot would nominate nim. When the first ballot opened Dickinson passed, while Clay and Palo Alto voted for Cheney. Kossuth got a 10 minutu recess to consult. It lay be- ween Cheney aml'Crim, and the delegation debated what to do. Meanwhile he Dickinson delegates waited and by waiting aroused the suspicions of the lay delegates and gave them time to consider. Before Kossuth had settled on a policy, word came that Clay and Palo Alto would go to Bachrnan if piokinson did not vote for Cheney. •Cossuth thus could name Crim or Dheney, Biiohmati or Cory on that bal- ot. Kossuth voted for Grim and so did Dickinson, then Clay and Palo Alto changed to Bachman and so did Kossuth. Dickinson then changed to heney, but Clay and Palo Alto would iot change back, and Bachman was the nominee. Three men wore nominated at 'one ,ime or another. Capt. Lyons of Peterson got 22 votes on one ballot, one nore than enough, but . five of them were taken back. Crim was also nom- nated on the last ballot until Kossuth changed to Bachman. One of the curious features of the convention was that Kossuth at the outset proposed that no vote should be allowed to be changed after being once cast, and that Major Cheney led the opposition. On the hist ballot it is >robab)e that Major Cheney would iave been nominated if this rule had >een adopted, while its rejection en- .bled Kossuth to make the nomination. The nomination of Dr. Baehman was not an accident. His name had been ;alked considerably the day before )oth by Kossuth and Emmet. He was Tenth district man, and Kossuth, Emmet and Palo Alto are all in the Tenth. Then, too, he is a strong personal friend of Congressman Dolliver. le has been active for many years in "'alo Alto county politics, is popular, a man of fine personal address, and well itted in every way to creditably repre- ent the district. He would have been nominated before hut for the fact that he Palo Alto delegation was tied ab- olutely to Cory and could not give him wo votes. Emmet was ready before o come with Kossuth to Bachman if he ould get two votes from Palo Alto. ?he doctor has been a resident of West 3end 17 years, at least half his prac- ice is in'Kossuth county, he has grown n popularity as he has gained In ac- _uaintances, and where he is best tnown his nomination is most highly poken of. He will please the republi- ans of the district when they come to meet him in the campaign. Ten-mile River .Excursion. On the Des Moines river, Sunday, Sept. 10.

The issue today is not a commercial one, nor is the question one of political expediency or party politics. It is purely a moral question. The vital Issue is the honor of tlie nation, the protection of the loyal Filipinos and the fulfillmentof our obligations to the nations of the world KENNEDY BROS.' WILD WEST SHOW AND HIPPODROME. To Be One of tho Chief Attractions at the Kossuth County Pair, Which. Comes Sept. 1O to 22—Is a Whole Show in Itself. 'JT'HE fair association is fortunate in Vl/ having secured as one of its best attractions this year Kennedy Bros.' hippodrome circus, wild west and running combination. It consists )f sixteen distinct attractions, and is said by those who have seen it to be alone well worth the price of admission o the grounds. These exhibitions are given daily during the' fair'on the race track, and are consequently free to all. The eight-horse obariot race is one of the most exciting of events. Then they have the bucking bronchos, riding the wild, unbroken steer, all serving to produce a rare wild west entertainment.

TUe Former Head of tUe Normal Scuool is Out ou the Lecture Platform, Prof. F. M. Qb-ftflfee, fprmerly principal of the Algonu, uoroial school, is w In >e involved in our acceptance of sovereignty. "Second, tho means and agencies for the accomplishment of this end must be determined by the president, and it is well to bear in mind that the president understands the situation better than any one else can possibly do, inasmuch as he is in receipt of information from a variety of sources, civil and military, and'has the judgment of experts upon the facts reported. I have no doubt the president will soon effect a solution of the Philippine problem which will be entirely satisfactory to the American people. To his statesmanship and tried ability we may entrust the issue with perfect confidence." President Schurman's report is thus fairly summorized by the Capital: The rebellion is not a Philippine rebellion. It is a Tagalog rebellion. The rebellion does not even embrace all of the island of Luzon. The Filipinos are a desirable sort of people. The Filipinos will, when peace is restored, yield to the elevating and. softening influence of education. No more than 1,500,000 of the 9,000,000 people of the Philippines are in. revolt. The people of tho big Negros islands are friendly. All the other people of the entire. Philippine group of 800 islands, with the exception of the Tagalogs, who comprise one-half of the natives of Luzon, are neutral, The natives of the other islands, who are nominally in revolt, are in fact only terrorized and coerced by the Tagalogs. Two generations of education in the Philippines will bring the people of thoso islands to a state of advancement that will equal in most essentials that of the Japanese. The Sulu group, comprising 'the southern third of the Philippine group of islands, is at peace and will remain, so. The sultan of Sulu has accepted the situation, only asking a favor at the hands of the United States, Export Jeweler at Miller's J. 11.
