A. t). CLAfiKE has reason to feel pleased with his support at Emmets' htirg, fie had as good .a delegation as ever represented the County, and every possible effort in his behalf was made, la addition a large number of representative citizens went over to render what assistance they were able. Mr. Clarke and 'his delegates won the friendly consideration of the convention, and the nomination plum barely missed his basket when it fell. CASTING lots to decide a contest is a method recognized by law. The code provides that in case of a tie vote for township officers the contestants shall draw, and if either refuse or fail to do so the township clerk shall act for him. In the case of a tie between candidates for a county s office the auditor, recorder and sheriff shall supervise the lot drawing, which shall occur 20 days after election. In the case of a tia between candidates for presidential electors the governor of the state shall draw lots in the presence of the other canvassers of the vote. The code does not specify that the lots shall be by pulling straws, cutting cards, taking numbers from hat, or playing "Honest Indian." But it expressly provides lot drawing in cases where there is an election dead- look. Lot drawing is equally efficacious and orderly in deciding a delegation between its first and second choice among candidates in a convention, where long protracted balloting has failed. It can only be condemned when for the sake of a chance the lots are cast between a candidate accepti- ble and one wholly unacceptible and unworthy, or when some political principle is put in jeopardy. No instance of that kind is on record in the history of this section. » Tfifc nomination of Senator funk is Welt received by the state as well as by his district. During, his eight years service IB the senate he has shown a moderation, straight forwardness, and abiding good sense, which have commended hlfti as a legislator. Be goes back to a third term, which is an unusual honor, with increased power of usefulness. The coming session is likely to prove important to the state, The code is to be revised, legislation affecting our temperance laws will be urged, the state will be re-districted, and numerous matters of importance will be up, all of them requiring the conscientious attention of men of experience in affairs. To all Senator Funk Will bring excellent judgment, unquestioned ability, and high ideals of what Iowa should have. As an all around legislator the state has better man. no JUDGE BABB, democratic nominee for governor, is everywhere well spoken of. Congressman Clark in the Gate City says he is an active Methodist, and a pronounced opponent of the liquor traffic as well as a total abstainer. He is a mild silver man, but says that is not an issue this year. Mrs. Babb made a speech at the reception tendered her husband and was the wittier and more entertaining of the two. The Babb family belong to Iowa's best people. IT should be definitely decided what 'authority exists to compel national guard men to attend camp and do military duty. Down at the Centerville encampment young Greendale of Ottumwa ran away from camp and at first the sheriff refused to bring him back. Finally under Adgt. Gen. Prime's order the sBeriff acted. Then Greendale " was set to mowing grass in the hot sun for desertion, and slipped his guard, but was again captured. If there is any military authority in Iowa in times of peace this is a serious offense. If there is not, the guard is not likely to prove very valuable in time of troubled Greendale claimed that be had a mother and two sisters dependent on him, and that he could not leave his work. He should have thought of this before he subjected himself to military rules. There is no law compelling anybody to ( ^oin the guards. But once joined there - should be ample authority to compel obedience. Otherwise the guards might as well play soldier ' with pine swords and toy guns.

BESTOW says he will allow his name to remain on the democratic ticket under protest. He will make no speeches, write no letter of acceptance, and endorse no platform. The Council Bluffs silver men are not as mild as that. They say the democratic platform is just what the republicans have been on for 26 years, and that if it is sound the republicans should have the credit and the offices. LeGrand Byington of Iowa City is still more emphatic. He "spits upon the lying platform"and "hails the late performance at Marshalltown with loath ing and contempt." . tositoj} juries Jn Louisiana, • this 009 ha? not' had a trial by his peer? W guaranteed by the constitution, The i seems to be, well The Sioux City Journal says the senatorial flght was decided by pulling straws. We can assure it that no such primitive method of deciding between its first and second choice was adopted, by the astute delegates from Kossuth. The Marshalltown Times-Republican says something worth remembering: " While not sympathizing with free coinage at 16 to 1 by this country alone the Times- Republican has even less tolerance for the ridiculous harping about gold standard countries as the advanced ones and silver countries as the half civilized or barbarous. Turkey is a gold country. So is Egypt. So again is Portugal. Are they the models of advancement, enlightenment and commercial prosperity to excite the envy of the United States? What is there in the condition of any of these countries with their crippled capital and degraded labor to show that gold monometallism is a great thing? On the other hand some of the silver countries are now in the enjoyment of remarkable prosperity. Let us hear less of the ridiculous assertion that all gold countries are advanced ones and silver countries only half civilized." Senator Funk bears his honors modestly. In describing the convention he says: " The convention was remarkable in many respects,. and particularly in the friendly relations among the opposing delegations which continued to the end. There was not an unkind word spoken. Courtesy and forbearance were manifest continually. It was a body of gentlemen who never forget the amenities of personal relationship even under the pressure of excitement and disappointment." '.

To us who have taken our places and done our work comes the desolating thought that we shall grow no more. We have been scrutinized, gauged and measured. Our specific gravity or levity, our cubic currents and our dew point have been ascertained and registered; we have become monotonous, The earth grows fatigued with us, but it greets the young with ardent and impatient admiration. The young are to do the work and win the victories in the future, and there are many to be won. They are to reinforce the wasting ranks and fill up the skeleton regiments of conquering armies of the civilization of the twentieth, century. Life's undesirable exultations may subside; its hopes and fate may chill, grow dim with years; its daring dreams of conquest may smolder to embers and gray ashes, but the unforgotten radiance of youth sheds an imperishable luster upon the wrinkled and venerable earth from the golden and purple fissure of the eastern sky.

We commend, the following from Burrell to the prayerful consideration of some farmer who has been threshing oats in a strong wind all day: "The dude of the future will be the farmer. His lot has been ameliorating for the last 35 years, when machinery began to be invented for IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Miss Anna Longbottom attended a summer school in Des Moines. J. J. Dorweiler is out from Guttenberg to visit his brother at West Bend. Judge Cook has been at Ledyard looking over the needs for more sidetrack. Congressman Dolliver speaks on republican day at the Ruthven fair, Sept. 19. T. L. Grose is running the county fair over at Emmetsburg. It comes Sept. 11-13. "Billy" Quick, Algona's old-time carpenter, is building the new Humboldt college. Rev. C. C. Wright, sop of G. S. Wright of West Bend, is building a new church at Bradgate. Emmetsburg Reporter: If the present dry weather holds much longer Palo Alto county will not haye much corn to ship over any line. Burt Monitor: We learn that Miss Fannie Richards is to accept a clerkship in Jas. Taylor's store at Algona and remain all the fall and winter. J. G. Cook of Spencer and a Mr. Van Gilder of Hartley shipped a car load of chickens, turkeys and ducks, Tuesday. There were over 4,000 of all kinds in the car. Tom Lane of Emmetsburg tried to catch some curves which Harry Wilson was practicing. The ball curved into his ribs and broke two short off. Harry's curves come with vigor. The West Bend Advance says that in chosing Philip Dorweiler chairman "the democrats of Kossuth demonstrated their appreciation of a good man and an indefatigable party worker." . Ledyard Leader: Earl Stephens sustained a painful injury Wednesday at the hay field near Moore's Siding. He was carrying a dinner pail and a saw on horseback and on dismounting they rattled and frightened the horse, It kicked him and stepped on him and Otherwise mistreated him, and the result was that Earl was very lame for sometime. Humboldt Republican: Mr, Bossingham, our veterinarian, left for Algona last week, and will not be in Humboldt again for some time, Mr. B. did not find his profession very paying here, His departure leaves 1 Humboldt practically without a regular veterinarian, and while we have horse .doctors galore, we surely have room fov a first class veterinarian, The senatorial convention met at Emmetsburg Tuesday of last Week and balloted all day, balloted all day Wednesday, and Thursday morning nominated' SeHatof Funk on the l^GStth The history of all which transpired in the two days would occupy many columns. It is enough to record that the Kossuth delegation kept Mr, Clarke's banner flying until they got as good a chance to nominate as could be asked, took i^ gracefully accepted the situation and went to Kossuth's undoubted second choice. Mr. Clarke made a graceful speech complimenting Senator Funk and pledging hearty good will. About 600 ballots were cast Tuesday without any breaks. Kossuth gave Mr. Clarke 11, Palo Alto gave Mr. Brown 7, Clay gave Mr. Hubbard 8, and Dickinson and Emmet gave Mr. Funk 11. The following day witnessed little change although it early developed that Palo Alto would go to Hubbard at any time they could nominate him and in return secure the representative for the district. This gave Hubbard 15 votes, Clarke 11 and Funk 11, 19 being needed to nominate. Complimentaries were thrown and the usual convention tactics resorted to, but the result was the same. The Kossuth delegation won credit throughout. S. X. Way proved to be' a lightning secretary, getting in as many as 10 ballots to the minute at one time. In the outcome our delegates forced the issue between the two candidates preferred by the county, the inevitable result being satisfactory at home. In the final ballot Kossuth went to Funk, giving him 22 votes, while Palo Alto still voted for Hubbard, him 15.

Sioux City Journal: The nomination of A. B. Funk by the republican senatorial convention for the Forty- seventh district at Emmetsburg yesterday shows how earnestly Iowa republicans are striving to put their best men in the field . for the legislature. The incident that it required nearly 1,600 ballots before the- convention agreed upon>Senator Funk, when such good men as A. D. Clarke of Algona, M. L. Brown of Emmetsburg, and Ackley Hubbard of Spencer, were pitted against him, is not evidence of a political squabble. There was none. The nominee could and would have accepted the naming of any of his competitors as being the honorable choice of an equal in his stead and there could scarcely be warmer praise accorded to the men who did not succeed. No mistake could have been made. Second Third Termer In Iowa. Des Moines Capital: The renomina- tion of Senator Funk secures to the state the continued services of a very useful legislator. Mr. Funk will next winter be the senior senator. He will, moreover, enjoy the distinction of being the second person to be chosen for a third consecutive term to the senate of the sta_te, the only other person chosen being William Larrabee, who was five times elected to the senate for full terms. The senator from Dickinson is worthy of the honor and of so illustrious a following. He Would Hove Been Missed. State Register: Senator Funk of Spirit Lake will hold his accustomed place in the legislature which meets next winter., He would have been missed. It took over 1,500 ballots to nominate him, only showing his great strength. Senator Funk is one of the best men ever elected to an Iowa legislature. He is a plain, substantial man, honest, scrupulously so, and upright in his thinking. The republican party can always rely upon him to do what is for the greatest good of the party'as well as for the greatest good of the people. Comment in General, Spencer News: We have just time to say in this issue that the senatorial convention nominated A. B. Funk this morning on the 1,508th ballot. A full report will be given next week.

Of course we \yould rather have seen A, D. .Clarke secure the nomination, but as that was not to be this county is pleased with the choice made.

Such stories are misleading, they ought to stick nearer the truth, which leads us to remark that a Garfield township farmer began cutting grain last week, shocking it -as fast as it was cut. When the field was finished he found himself left in the middle of it With shocks so thick that he couldn't get his horses out between them and they starved to death. An Erin township man has so much grain that he couldn't afford to have it cut so he drove around on the heads, tramp* ing it out with the horses' feet. We don't know what it will yield, but the grain is running oyer the top wire of the fence, clear across the road. Elder Stewart on his Concord township farm will not try to thresh his grain, so he says. He has it cut and will cut it some more and feed it to the cattle whole. His land is so rich that the oats have shelled and fallen down inside of the straw until the hollow of the straw was chuck full of shelled oats. The elder knows how to utilize his feed so as to economize to the fullest extent. A Winnebago county man has so much grain that he can't pay the thresh bill, into $40. When the telephone line was built from here to Algona, it ran through a corn field in one place; the ears hanging over the wire caught a conversation recently when a Wesley youth was talking to his Algona girl, and the ears tingled so that all the bells on the line rang in unison. The line will be lowered a foot so it will come below the ears. At Hutchins where the wire runs across through a corn field there are ears on every stalk, and three on every pole, while the kernels grow so much faster than the cobs that a quart of corn lays on the ground around the hills. Our exchanges exaggerate as to yields in some places, but it cannot be done in Hancock and Winnebago counties this year with barley yielding 86 bushels to the acre by weight, as it did near Goodell, and oats over 100 bushels per acre, as they do all around us. It is impossible to exaggerate this year. . KOSSUTH HOLDS THE EEOORD. C. 1i. Xiund Gets 85 Bushels of "Wheat to the Acre Which Grades No. 1 Northern—The First Reported In Iowa. The first number one wheat ever sent out of Kossuth, and the first reported in the state this fall, has been threshed on C. L. Lund's farm. 'He had 60 acres and his yield is 35 bushels to the acre of as fine wheat • as ever grew. He has boxed up samples and sent them to St. Paul, Minneapolis, Milwaukee and Chicago, and they came back graded No. 1 Northern, the highest grade for spring wheat, and he gets 70 cents a bushel in Milwaukee, where he has sold. At this price his wheat crop goes $24.50 to the acre, which is pretty fair interest on even the high priced land in Mr. Lund's magnificent farm. JULY WEATHER IN KOSSUTH. Weather Clerk Pettibone reports the mean temperature of July at 72.2 degrees. The hot day went up to 95 and the cold one to 56. The total rainfall was 3.81 inches, we had light frost on the 9th, hail on the 18th and 25th, and we had 18 clear days and 13 partly cloudy. July was all right. THE STATE REPORT, In more than half of the state corn has unquestionably received some measure of damage from hot and dry weather since the first of August, an'd the present condition does not justify the promise of more than an average yield for the state at large. Reports show the condition to be very uneven as a result of the notable variability of * v ~ rainfall.

Paul railway'will * «,awing pa,r on Tj-ainffe, - # - - * ever, to this because the the storm center of tha convention, and because the Koasuth delegation swung the district, and because for reasons that will appear the Courier is not likely to go into the details, The getting together of the delegates showed that there was to be a big fight over the silver question, The postmasters district attorneys, and all federal office holders present or prospective, except Bro. Hinchon, were on hand to help the administration and defend gold, The others were bound to have a 16 to 1 plank in the platform. The issue came up first in the district caucuses over the choice of members of the committee on resolutions, and the Tenth had a merry war if all reports can be credited. There were three candidates, M. Zimmerman of Boone was a gold man, Geo. Wambaugh of Webster City wanted the money question left out of the. platform, while Michael Healey of Fort Dodge, Bro. Hinchon's half brother, was outspokenly for free silver. Kossuth on the firsl^ ballot gave Mr. Healey two votes, and then for five ballots gave him four votes out of the nine, but on the sixth ballot for reasons we cannot get at the solid delegation was won to the gold man and he was chosen by one majority. During the balloting a big debate waa held and Mr. Healey is said to have made the best free silver speech tkat was made in the convention. But immediately thereafter or later, we cannot find out exactly, J. J. Ryan demolished Mr. Healey's arguments and gave "sound money" such a boost that the Kossuth votes all went away from Bro. Hinchon's brother to the goldite Zimmerman. The silver men at this are reported by the Des Moines Capital to have bolted from the caucus, but our local democrats say that that ended the business and that everybody left, the silver men getting out a little in advance. Before this had happened Dr. Kenefick had been chosen for the district member of the committee on permanent organization and rules. Whether the doctor's appointment as pension " examiner brings him under the venerable L. R. Bolter's denunciation of federal office holders or not, is a question. But the doctor went into the committee and assisted in selecting Senator Shields of Dubuque, a gold man, against Lieutenant Governor Bestow, for permanent chairman, and also asssisted in devising ihe rules which confined speeches to ten minutes, which was evidently an assault on the free coinage men, for who of them could make a speech in ten minutes? After the caucus was over the Tenth went with the rest to the convention and there Kossuth voted solidly with the "sound money" forces, nine votes for Shields for chairman and nine votes against the free coinage plank. The total vote of the convention was 660 for Shields to 417 for Bestow, and 657 for "sound money" against 420 for silver. THE UPPER DES MOINES need not inform its readers that it is disappointed in this outcome locally. After J. G. Graham had informed it that J. J. Ryan was the only anti-silver democrat in the county, and that Kossuth would stand shoulder to shoulder with the toiling millions, to have a full delegation go down and help out the administration, when one vote decided the outcome in this district, causes us to doubt the certainty of politics. We regret also that the Kossuth delegation should have voted solidly against Mr. Healey, a most estimable gentleman, Whether the Courier will take the matter up and give the delegates the oastigation it no doubt feels that they deserve remains to be seen. It certainly should. Hpw can it sit by quietly and see the county go back on us brother, and on silver at the same time? WANTS $10,000, J, II, iCUinnr, Who Is Putting In the St. Jo Iron Bridge.
