Apparently one Sandberg, connected WK'h the new Fort Dodge Lutheran hospital, did not file though he was here, promoting his candidacy, two weeks ago. The only democratic candidate Is W. T. Branagan, son of the senior publisher of the Emmetsburg Democrat. Seven Seek Governorship. 'For governor there are four republican candidates: Governor Turner; Otto Lange, Dubuque, former state senator; Louis J. Kehoe.Well- man; and the perennial candidate- for-somethlng, Dr. J. W.

The reason for the ordinance is numerous .fires in recent years caused by defective wiring installed when the current demand was small and the loads on the wires at a minimum. New ways of using electricity, the vacuum cleaner, toasters, heating pads, motors, and higher-powered lights, have demanded a constantly increasing current of electricity via the wires. When the current toe- comes too great for defective points in wiring, fires are apt to start. To be certain that all future wiring is done properly, the superintendent of the electric light plant is by the new ordinance made inepec- Other seniors on the roll are j as Lemleys his coadjutor In alleged jt or o f w iring, and a permit must be ' obtained to do wiring when the toelle, head nurse, Alice Weaver; C,"Hlgglns, Superintendent, Elmer Permele.r; Reggie Mortimer,.fop- lyoung^man and an admirer of , Wilbur Hassebrack; , Evelyn (fjnslow, appealing and wealthy paint, Pearl Wlrtjes; Edward!

There are two democratic candidates. •For secretary of state there are only two candidates: the incumbent republican, G. C. Mrs. Alex Miller, Greenwalt, and of Washington, Senator Brookhart's home town. Long; and Johnson File. The imbroglio connected with J. W. Long, state auditor, has resulted in a large number of candidates on both sides. Long himself, as well A copy of. the Colonial Gazette, Fairfax, Los Angeles, high school paper, dated April S, has been received, and it gives a few more facts concerning Mr. and Mrs. Howard S. Mountford's elder son Stanley, whose death from blood-poisoning which developed from a wound made by a rusty nail, was reported two weeks ago. The .paper says: "Funeral services were held Saturday, April 2, at the Little Church of the Flowers, Forest Lawn, for Stanley ("Stub") Mountford. S '28, former popular and prominent Colonial who died last week at the Hollywood hospital, following a brief illness. "After graduation, 'Stanley attended the Hancock Aeronautical School at Santa Maria, where he won his wings as a flyer. He did not, however, make aviation a career,, but entered the automobile business at Burbank. He ie survived toy his parents and his brother Durwood, senior A at Fairfax. "One of the most popular boys ' ever to attend Fairfax, Stanley was a member of the champion- ship class A football team, and he was also active In student' governmental affairs. Of winning personality, he*..held the loyalty and respect of both faculty and fellow students. "Known to'' his fellows as 'Stub,'. Stanley made' good as a member of the middleweight football teams in '25 and '26, the '20 team winning our first Class B championship, and in the- following 'season ,he played a fine game at halfback on our first championship, heavyweight team. He wae a splendid, energetic fellow, a gentleman and a eports- man, and we feel his loss." As part of this story the paper published feeling tributes from the .high school principal, the present coach', and the '27 championship coach.

Senator Patterson, is said to be for Karl W. Fischer, of Vinton. There are four democratic candidates. R. E. Johnson, serving his third term ae state treasurer, has tou.t one opponent, O. K. Maben, of Garner. Johnson is the fellow who was. arrested last summer on a charge of driving while intoxicated, but somehow 'he got off without punishment, though belief that he deserved the legal penalties is more or less general. There are two democratic candidates, and one of them is Leo J. Wegman, of Carroll, once Kossuth county superintendent of schools, later People's Savings bank cashier ait St. Benedict. McKarlaml Opposes Puttcrson. There was a rumor two or' three weeks ago that Attorney Morse, of Estherville, would oppose Geo. W. Patterson for the republican nomination for state senator, but It proved groundless, and the only opposition te B. F. McFarland, West Bend, on the democratic ticket. For representative from Kossuth county there will be a straight-out republican-democratic fight next fall, the only candidates being J. C. Mawdsley, Irvington, republican, and Representative A. H. Bonnstet- iter, democrat, who seeks reelection. The filing time for candidates for county offices will expire at midnight next Saturday. . Flfflits ill Emmet and Wlniiebagn, In the republican primary in Emmet county, Representative E. O. ftelgason, once of Seneca township, this county, is opposed by two candidates, and there are two democratic candidates. In AVinnebago 'county a bitter contest for the republican .nomination Js being waged by Representative Haneeni and W. R. Prewitt, editor of the Forest City Summit. Mr. Prewitt is the father-in-law of Lela, daughter of Editor Lee O. Wolfe, of TJtpnka. The Summit is of course upholding Mr. Prewitt's cause, and *he other Forest City paper, the Republican. Is for Hansen. Senator Torsescm part of whose district consists of Winnebago county, is also the object of bitter opposition, and in both his case and Hansen's the opposition is making a great appeal to antl-"salary grab" sentiment. HWr'/aWjMMIg' Last year the.re was a state fores- - ' for I-H boys and girls. , daughter of Mr. and town•third place in the Agent M'nrrison nas wires are to carry more than 14 volts. A permit is required for each contract for wiring. The installation of new equipment in a home requiring additional wiring requires a permit. After any wiring has been completed it must be inspected and approved before the current can be turned on. Licenses to do wiring -are also provided for .in the ordinance. The fee Is $10 annually, and a bond of $1,000 to be approved by. the council, must be posted to insure faithful compliance with the ordinance. Violation of the ordlntnce~is made a misdemeanor, and the violator will be subject to a fine of not more than $100 or he may toe sent to jail for any period up to 30 days. 'In the larger buildings, where heavy wiring is to be done, or where there are numerous outlets, -a complete set of plans must first \>e filed in the city superintendent's • office, subject to his' approval. If not approved the plans must be revised to coincide with his recommendations. After work is completed the contractor must allow 24 hours for in- snection before the wiring 'is covered up. 'If on inspection it is found not to comply 'with the ordinance, then it must be redone, Thto can be enforced not only by resort to penal provisions of the ordinance the designed to apply not only to the city plant but also tot any concern which may supply current in Algona. in future. Mere insulation covering on wire is not to be considered satisfactory wir- that but also by refusal to turn on electricity. TJie ordinance Is as a safeguard in permanent; ing. The ordinance provides all wiring, no matter how well insulated, shall be considered bare. This means that wires leading to a socket shall be spaced far enough part so no spark or leakage could occur if Aie wires were bare. This is because Insulation wears in time. In .public buildings where exit lights are used a separate circuit is required for such connections. Thus if the main lighting circuit ie damaged or becomes inoperative the exit lights will continue to burn. A provision gives the city superintendent authority to inspect all past wiring whenever he deems such inspection necessary. Wiring found to be defective must ' be changed to meet his approval. The ordinance is aimed at persons who do amateur wiring as well as at professional electricians? Even amateurs working in their own homes must secure permits, and the work must be inspected. In the past many fires Jiave been caused by amateur wiring In which electrical principles were overlooked. The ordinance, however, exempts wiring for door bells, electric call 'bells, •gas-lighting "apparatus, , call bells, burglar alarms, telephone, telegraph and fire alarms, or similar Installations where the current will-• not be more than 14 volts and is obtained from dry batteries.

W. Hanna published in the Lu Verne News onoe a year. Private banks did not have to publish statements, but Mr. Hanna did it anyhow. These statements were unique and striking, even an orange plantation In Mexico, and personal property, including cattle, hogs, horses, corn, other grain, etc., in addition to the loans, deposits, cash on hand, and so on ordinarily found in bank statement's. If memory mistakes not, the highest total among the statements ran well up toWords a million dollars. Recollection of these statements was stirred by. the publication in last week's Lu Verne News of the following story: G. S. Buchanan, receiver of the Bank of Lu Verne, last week sent to creditors of the bank a statement showing assets and the liabilities as they stood at the end of approximately six months of receivership. The statement shows an indebtedness of $428,943.32. Offsetting this there are 6911 acres of 'farm land in Kossuth and Humboldt counties, with 19 sets of improvements; and against this land there is an average incubrance of $47.75 an acre. There are also four business lote and one city property, all free from indebtedness. Included in the business lots -is the former bank building. Other assets include $13,282.85 in cash on hand or deposited in other banks; $73,643.30 in outstanding notes; 37,000 .bushels of corn and 16,000 bushels of oats; 60 hogs, 16 sheep, 460 head of cattle, --and a number of horses. There is also a large amount of farm machinery at the ranch and many smaller items. The estimated cash value of these assets is around $114,000.
