The Kossuth delegation joined a "bolshevik" group on many of the motions put before a well-oiled republican state convention at Des Moines Tuesday. The eighth congressional, district, of which Kossuth. is part, was beaten out of representation on the convention resolutions committee by failure of the district committeeman met with the committee till late in the day, also by a "gag" rule slipped over when the convention convened. Resolutions were adopted lauding President Hoover, recognizing agriculture as a basic industry, and advocating changes in the tariff to give better protection to'farm products \ylthout increasing the cost' of goods needed in the-middle west. An eighth 'distflet's proposal of, a resolution against adoption of the sales taxation by the federal government wag Ignored. Senator Geo. W. Patterson, Burt, speaking for the district, attempted to 'bring the resolution upon the floor of the convention, but wae prevented by a "gag" rule which prohibited motions or debates from the floor. Resolution Hit Sales Tax! The resolution proposed by the district was: ,"We disapprove a general sales tax, and instead urge congress to enact such legislation, as would divert to public use the. sur- plus'gains of the nation." A. J. Shaw, Pocahontas, chairman of the. district resolutions committee, was instructed by the district caucus at Its meeting Tuesday] morning to present a minority re- p'q'rt to the convention if any of the eighth's resolutions were omitted by the convention committee, in which he was.,district representative, but tte i; committee's, report wae announced as unanimous, For . some unknown reason Mr. Shaw did not attend • sessions, of :the resolutions committee • at the noon recess, and he had to be paged . on the. floor of the convention, where he was informed'of the necessity of attendance. The , resolutions / committee was an hour and a halfflate, and the convention, which had completed other business, had to recess to await the report., /Refuse Hoover Instructions. Kossuth joined fdve other counties in the Eighth, and six counties in other districts In splitting on 'Instructions to delegates for President Hoover, Eleven' Kossuth delegates voted for an uninstructed delegation, and one vote was cast for instructing for Hoover.

Seneca entered the district, tour- The Seneca high school girls' basketball team went to Des Moines yesterday to compete in a girls' state championship tournament beginning today. The opening game will be against Ceriterville this evening at-8:40. The Seneca team is perhaps the only one in the state which has gone through the season without losing a single game. It has 23 consecutive wins to its credit. This record includes inter-'school, Sectional, and district tournaments. The. girls cinched entry at Des Moines-at Plover week-end before last by winning a. district championship in victories over the strong Ottosen, Cooper, and Havelock teams. In the sectional tournament the girls won from Bancroft, Graettinger, and Armstrong. They, also won the Koesuth championship by defeating In the. final round the strong Whlttempre team, which won the state tournament at Des Moines last year. Meet Fast Team In Opener. CenteuvlHe, the first team the Senecans will play at Des Moines, was runner-up in the 1931 tournament; but when it reached the final round lost to Avoca. A dispatch to the Des Moines Register ^from Fenton said: '!The Seneca girls are likely to be the smallest team In the tournament at Des Moines. Their main advantages are-speed and a love .of competition but - in spite of their lack of- height they have outplayed and defeated- every rival they have met.

No particular opposition to the renomination of President Hoover was expressed In these votes.

GRAVELED MAO EMBARGO DELAYED BY SNOW & COLD An embargo on trucks up to three tons traveling, over Kossuth's grave] roads'was to have been laid down early in the week, but the time was extended till Monday's snow, begins melting. State 'roads -are already under an embargo except on paving, The weight limit is the. ' combined weight of truck, and load. .Such action is being taken both by the' state and. county to prevent breaking; of .the crust .on graveled roads'in ,the - spring, 8om.e years ago, when trucks first began to haul heavy loads in the spring, the graveled roads. b.roke down and became so filled'with, mudholes as to be almost impassable. ' There is now a good crust on top, but, melting snow and thawing ice in the ground makes the subsoil Under the roads exceedingly damp, and heavy trucks would shake up the watered mass till It became soupy and the crust broke. Once a crust is broken It takes all summer to get another good surface.

There was a blaze underneath the stairs to the b'a'se- ment where • five -barrels of /alcohol, machine >oll, J . turpentine',' and other highly inflammable liquids are kept. If any had exploded the other's would have done eo within a few minutes, and a .whole block in the business district might have gone; up in smoke. Mr. Kohlhaas and the employes had left the building by 6:15, but a customer called Mr. Kohlhaas back at 7 o'clock. He noticed smoke when he entered and when he turned the lights on he couldn't see a second string of lights only 20 feet away because of thick smoke. The firemen threw a specially designed fire bomb into the;' blaze, which spread it and enabled them to put the fire out quickly with the 100 gallons of water from the emergency tank on .the new fire "truck." Such a 4 bomb.had never been used here before, though the, fire qompany , has- had a number of them on hand'for "some .time." The bomb' looks' like a harmless glass ball filled with liquid, but it explodes when thrown onto a fire and blows the blaze out temporarily for a radius -of 12 feet, which lets the firemen get at .the blaze with water and chemicals. A barrel of oil next to the fire was boiling and overflowing; a,nd a barrel of alcohol stayed'hot three hours after.the fire was out. Little: damage was done by water, but emoke ruined ' the. finish on metal goods. This damage is- hard •to estimate, according to Mr. Kohlhaas, Neither 'firemen nor Mr, Kohlhaas could give any explanation of the noon. numbers In recent years to such a meeting. The delegates were Joyous and that speakers frequently spoke of results to be expected from the coming election with confidence. "FOX' out the ticket" was almost a battte- cry, and the urge extended even to, nominations for township offices. The convention was called to order by *eoun# Chairman Cf.' B.

Mr. Sheridan said he had attended, such conventions 40 years, and had: been a worker for the party the- whole time. He remarked that;any: schoolboy could make a good democratic speech this year, and this drew a laugh from the audience. 'Representative A. .H. Bonnstetter moved that a committee be named to select a delegation to the state- convention. This: was .carried, •and: L. B Linnan, Mr. MUrtagh, and Henry Kunz, Wesley, were named. by Chairman Sheridan. f .+•' ' ,,. - When "the committee retired Mr. Bonnstetter was called upon for a talk, but he said 'that he preferred not to speak at this time, assuring- the audience," however', 'that'- b» , would 'haye, plenty to say ' 'at, ^ second convention after the' r prlmar- ies in June. He thanked the democrats for'their support in.the election two years ago. , , Wants Candidate for Every Office.. ' Mr. Sheridan speaking from *th* qhair, urged that a complete .county and township ticket be named. Thlav • year is certain to be strongly democratic, he said, and an effort shouM be made to land every office • froo* town and township up to county an* • district offices.
