Beg Your Pardon I In the Whittemore column a. wed- heading appears over a death notice. It was intended to run the death notice elsewhere, but the head- nigs were switched by accident. Wegman M AINY IN KOSSUTH will -recognize- these features. The picture is of Leo J. Wegman, of Carroll, democratic candidate for treasurer of state, once railroad agent at St. Benedict, then cashier of the St. Benedict bank. Editor Tells (Continued from page 1.) Johnson, -state treasurer, in favor of Leo 'Wegman, democratic candidate. I have two reasons for this. One Is that Johnson disgraced frits office by getting .Into trouble with the law over booze; the other Is that 'Wegan Is a former Kossuth citizen whose record is •excellent. I may also vote for Ray Murray, of Buffalo Center, democratic candidate for secretary of agriculture. I have, however, nothing against Mark G. Thornburg, present secretary. Both candidates are our neighbors, Murray hailing -from Wlnnebago county on the east and Thornburg from Palo Alto- county on the west, In the pre-primary campaign of two years ago I supported the then Senatpr F. C. Gilchrist, of Laurens, for congress, and I have since had no reason to regret doing so, on the contrary many reasons for approval. Mr. Gilchrist's record. Is set out elsewhere. It goes without saying that I shall support him, and I feel that In this I shall be in accord ."with general sentiment In the Eighth district. It is also to be understood that I shall cast my vote -for the reelection of Senator Patterson. There seems to be Jio doubt that in this, too, I am in tune with general opinion.
