The delegation from Kossuth county went Monday night, as did a number of out- sldefs, to be present during the pre- Itninafy struggle, Others went yes- ierday. At this time the relative strength of the various candidates for governor is unknown. Very conflict- .ng claims are tntide by the supporters of Drake and Harlan especially, and the only certainty is that these luon ead the fleld by a safe distance. The State Register claims Drake in the .ead, but not far enough to make his nomination at all certain. Other papers say that Harlan will show as nuch strength as Drake. A very bitter fight is being made on Drake and a lot of scandalous and evidently malicious stuff is being peddled over the state. This attack may cause the convention to fight shy of the general 'or fear of a defensive campaign. On she other hand it may react and insure ils nomination. It may cause a general turning to Harlan, who, in spite of his old ago and weak support n his own district, bids fair to be nominated. The possible and very Drobable result may be that both will je relegated to the rear and that some of the second choice men will come to the front. Among these Mat. Parrott will have a big following, and . Col. Ormsby will at first, at least, have a good vote. Senator Kamrar's friends expect to see him go to the front in event of a long contest. The lieutenant governorship may cut a figure. Although no one is contesting with Jungan, in the convention either Parrott, Ormsby, or Kamrar may see ;he way open to second place and accept. McParland and Harsh do not seem likely to be winners. Both have iggressive opposition without having i lead in the convention. McParland s especially antagonized by the Drake 'orces. The convention will be the most exciting held in late years, as all conventions which turn on personal spites and likes and dislikes are. A Story oil Asa K. Smith. The Livermore Gazette Is responsible for the following: Tom McGulre was somewhat surprised and chagrined .ast Saturday afternoon to find that a package of groceries and dry goods' amounting to about five dollars, which tie had left in his wagon in the shed Behind Merrill & Sullivan's store a half hour previous, was missing. He stopped a reporter on the street and inquired about the best course to pursue, and finally decided that a very safe thing to do would be to go to the home of Asa Smith, who liyes next the alley, and who would be likely to see anybody that had. been through there, and inquire of. them. He accordingly. entered Asa's house and the first thing that met his view was his dry goods and groceries, He asked Asa if he had seen anybody take any goods from the wagon or go through that way, but Asa had seen nothing except a man heading for > the Minne-* apolis track some time previous. He then Informed him that those goods were his which were lying in the' bouse there, and Asa, after satisfying himself that they were really his, delivered them up. He accounts for their being in his possession through the instrumentality of his four-year- old son Zebidee, who was on a pilgrimage through the alley and found the goods an he says, on the ground. And the reason that Asa was not in a hurry to acknowledge the possession of the goods, was, as he says, that he wanted to make no mistake* about their getting into the proper hands, These are the facts just as near as can be ascertained and the public is at liberty to put its own construction on it. Asa has always borne a good reputation for honesty, whatever other peculiarities he may have, but those four-year-old "Zebidees," whatever their ages may be, may have to be restrained in their pilgrimages through th.e alleys and elsewhere,' tempered td take two years ttt fflake the discovery that he Is ffiadi" Drintth in IVlScottsiti and tlliabift, Burt Monitor: D.
