Matson & McCall. Ledyard polled the unprecedented flumbei* of 96 votes at the first t6wn election last Thursday, More were Offered but were ruled out, Ol those cast Andy Dunlap got 62 and J. W. Nelster 43, and as no contest is likely, Andy is now "Siafloflor," Attorney Raymond was up as the legal adviser of the Welttief party aad several votes were challenged afflottg the 1 Dutilap supporters, but were sworn in. Aside from these the division Was about even. It is reported that the war will he carried Into the legislative campaign and that Andy will not carry the town if the other side can prevent it, for a delegation. . The Caucus 1'roceedlngB. The Leader reports the preliminaries very fully as follows: Ledyard's first caucus for city purposes was a h ummer. It was called for Saturday evening at Judge Trimble's office, but, as we printers would say» It was "crowded out for want of space" and had to go to the school house. The largest room was filled far beyond its seating capacity, and still they came and kept coming. Commissioner Jenks touched the button, stated the caucus bill of fare, so to speak, and wound up by asking for a nomination for chairman and the caucus did the rest. Frank Heizer sandwiched in the nomination of Dr. E. F. Dunlap which found a ready second and was indorsed unanimously. The doctor became neither eloquent nor vain on taking hold of the honor, but went straightway at business. The choice for secretary fell on H. F. Shipley and he wanted to record the procedings on the blackboard, but the chair confined him to ordinary paper and pencil and the meeting was ready for business, ordered to "play ball.'' Andy Dunlap at the bat. Andy arose with as much dignity and deliberation as a Nevada senator offering a silver resolution and moved that the chair appoint a committee of three, whose duty it should be to select one candidate for mayor, one candidate for recorder and six candidates for trustee. -The motion found a second. Frank Wlemer moved as a substitute that candidates be nominated by ballot. The substitute was ruled out of order and a division of the house ordered on Dunlap's motion. The result as announced was 45 for and 31 against. The chair then named the following gentlemen as such committee: Gal. Wilson, John Witwer, and Frank Heizer. Proceedings were practically over and 81 citizens, led by Frank Wiemer, filed out of the convention hall and to Judge Trimble's office, where a brief council of war was held, which later developed into a caucus. The committee soon returned and reported the following ticket: Mayor, A. J. Dunlap; recorder, E. J. Skinner; trustees, W. A, Wright, W. J. Smith, Jas, Beetn, F. S. Jenks, A. E. Graves and D. H. Brown. The caucus then adjourned. Down at Judge Trimble's office the Leader found a life-sized, robust caucus in session with C. A. Ordway presiding and Judge Trimble recording proceedings. The ticket nominated is as follows: Mayor, John W. Neister; recorder, W. L. Rule; trustees, A. E. Graves, E. J. Skinner, C. A. Ordway, Anson Sherman, J. B. Rendall and H. L.

Scott; medical director, Dr. H. C. McCoy; chaplain, J. B. Holbrook. COMPLIMENTARY FOR DR. M'COY. The Clinton Age, Judge Thayer's paper, gives Dr. McCoy very complimentary mention as follows: The medical director elect, Dr. H. C. McCoy of Algona, came tb this state in 1870 and located at Algona, where he has since resided, being actively engaged in the practice of his profession and in other ways doing what he could to develop the resources of the state of his adoption. ' He has been an enthusiastic member of the Grand Army of the Republic for many years, being a charter member of J. C. Taylor post, 165, at Algona. He served during the .war from T 62 to '65 in the Thirty-first Wisconsin infantry, and Third Tennesee cavalry, in the last named regiment as surgeon. The comrades all have a warm place in his affection. A SKETCH OF COL. THOMPSON. The Rock Rapids Review, which has done a lot of work to secure the election of its townsman, gives the following sketch of his career: J. K. P. Thompson was born August 21,1845, at Corey, Ohio. He enlisted as a musician in Company D, Twenty-first Iowa, at the age of 16, and served three years. He was engaged in the battles of Hartsville, Missouri, Port Gibson, Champion Hill, was in the charge of Black River Bridge, and was at the siege of Vicksburg, being wounded on the 22nd of May, and was sent to the hospital at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri. He returned to his regiment at Matagorda Bay. In the winter of '63 and '64 was at the siege of Spanish Fort, where he volunteered for special duty in carrying ammunition to the front and escaped by a hair's breadth of having his head severed from his body by a cannon ball. He was in the siege and charge of Blakesley and the taking of Mobile, and took part In the running of the blockade at Vicksburg, and the bombardment of Grand Gulf. J. K. P. Thompson has been closely identified with Rock Rapids and Lyon county from their infancy. He has been one of the foremost in enterprise, public spirit and faith in this community among its citizens. He has received the reward of industry and per- severence, when coupled with sagacity and prudence, and the banking house of Miller & Thompson Is today one of the leading financial institutions in this part of the state, .
