A crowd estimated at between 250 and 300 heard Bert Godfredson, of Austin, Minn., speak on the courthouse lawn Tuesday morning. That afternoon a chapter of the Independent Union of All Workers was organized. There has been agitation for several days among workmen here who expected jobs at loading gravel .rucks. Machinery, however, is be- ng used for much of the work, and as a result many men are without iobs. A protest meeting was held Sun- j day afternoon on the courthouse j square, but nothing definite was done. It was decided, however, byj a group to call the Union at Austin, which has recently conducted two or three strikes. Mr. Godfredson was telephoned Monday night and called the meeting for Tuesday morning. Speaker Explains Purpose. In his talk Mr. Godfredson stated that the Union had organizations at Austin, Albert Lea, Faribault, St. Paul, and Winona, in Minnesota, two locals in Wisconsin, and two in South Dakota. Up to date the only one in Iowa is at Waterloo. Opening his address, Mr. Godfredson said the organization has been called radical, but that it is not radical. The purpose is to make settlements for better wages for workers, whether skilled or common labor, and both groups can find a place in the organization which is designed for every workman. The group, he said, could be no more radical than its members. Want Machinery Eliminated. -. Strikes', under regulations of the Union, can be called only by mass meetings of an entire group, and annot be called off without anoth- mass meeting. He.said strikes Austin had secured a 45 hour rage on a 32-hour week basis for acking house employes. Another trike secured a 10 per cent in- rease in skilled labor pay.

Turner, however, lost the five counties as a whole, receiving fills vofes against <!«i(i for the combined opposition. His weakness in Hancock, which went heavily for Knutson (1181 votes to "Ofi for Colflesh and 337 for Short) cost him the majority. PATTERSON'S SLUMP SHOCK FORJRIENDS Trails 3 Opponents in Vote on Lieut. Governor. Failure of Sen. Geo. W. Patterson to lead for the republican nomination for lieutenant governor, and his relegation instead to the foot of the ticket for that office, was one of the big surprises of the primary election. Nearly all pre-primary prognosticators had conceded Patterson's Jfo republican nomination for the lieutenant governorship was made in Monday's primary election, no candidate receiving 35 per cent of the state vote. The nomination therefore goes to the state convention, in which there will be an oldtime political battle. This means every candidate will need a trading delegation, meaning a delegation that will vote entirely in his interest, BACK OF DROUGHT BROKEN BY RAINS; FARMERS JUBILANT Showers Sunday, Monday, and yesterday gave relief from the scorching heat wave which had More rain yesterday. The drought is broken. Hooray! The full yesterday totaled .80 inch. te common labor must cease, at east during the present emergency and the workmen should be paid a iving wage, Mr. Godfredson de- lared. No scale of pay was sug- fested. "' Many Seek Membership. Following the meeting, a large number in the group signed mem- ership application 'cards and agreed to a further meeting the ame afternoon at the old sales pavilion a block south of the court- iouse. Archie Dodds, Aigona, was named president; Robert Noigd, vice; Ben Nolle, secretary; Walter Stev- m, treasurer, This is a county organization.

They also changed the pay- chology of both town and country from gloom to cheer. The oats will not be much, but corn has been saved at the last minute and pastures have been revived. The rainfall Sunday amounted to .32 inch; that on Monday to .16 in.; yesterday morning's to only .05 inch. The total for the week was only .53 inches, which though it came in scattered showers, allowing all to be soaked into the ground, is not enough to relieve the drought. The shower Sunday morning fell slowly and soaked into the parched ground rapidly. No rain fell in own Sunday afternoon, but an ex- ellent shower fell to the south nd moved to a point northeast of Sexton, where the rain was heavy nough to leave water standing in he fields.

Clifton, of the Des Moines Register, in a Sunday story, gave Patterson the edge. According to yesterday's Register, the state vote, with only a few counties yet to hear from stood as follows: Cress, Mason City 62,953 Nelson, Decorah 62,05] Thompson, Muscatine 56,619 Patterson, Burt 55,305 Big Lead in Kossuth. In Kossuth Patterson obtained a great indorsement, yet there was sizable opposition. Altogether hi three outside opponents recetvet more than 22 per cent of the vote Patterson receiving 78 per cent The vote stood: Patterson 228 Cress 391 Nelson 241 Thompson 178 Viewing the results in both state and county, politicians find it dif- icult to account for the Patterson slump. It is suggested, however, hat his attitude on the state liquor question undoubtedly cost him much support and may have been decisive. Some Precinct Results. It had been predicted that in reenwood township, of which Sancroft is a part, voters favoring iquor would take revenge on Patterson, but no great slump there showed up. Patterson receiving 68 votes to only 22 for the combined opposition. Greenwood is a democratic stronghold. In Burt township Patterson chained a vote of 210 against a corn- lined vote of 33 for his opponents, and in Portland, his home precinct, received 51 votes against 11 for the opposition. In Buffalo, next east of Portland, there was a drift against him, though he emerged victor, 82-66. Indicative of a rift between Patterson and Representative Bonnstetter, Garfield cast 12 votes against Patterson, but the latter nevertheless carried the precinct by a margin of two. Garfield is ordinarily democratic. Patterson also won Lotts Creek by a narrow squeak, 24-21. Seneca gave him 39 to 30. Liquor Stand Costly? Inspection of the county returns lends plausibility to the theory that Patterson's liquor stand cost him most of the opposition votes here, and it seems likely that the same thing was true throughout Final Returns in Election Contests .= m & «»-» *o SJ Aigona — First Ward gl Aigona — Second Ward _ 34 Aigona — Third Ward " 37 Aigona — Fourth Ward 28 Burt " 43 Buffalo 44 Cresco iQ Eagle _ 26 East Lone Rock _ __ 14 Fenton jg Garfield j German 5 Grant 19 Greenwood 15 Harrison gj Hebron 13 Irvington __ 7 Lakota 19 Ledyard — 27 Lincoln 3 Lone Rock _. . 19 Lotts Creek 12 Lu Verne ig Plum Creek jg Portland 9 Prairie 2 Ramsey __ 7 Riverdale _ 4 Seneca 20 Sexton u Sherman 4 Springfield 13 Swea g Union jg Wesley _ 22 Whittemore _ 12 667 o « 9 a W 2!) 47 17 17 24 34 9 11 7 37 2 6 8 15 52 12 3 13 14 n 28 18 18 5 4 t i; a i 2 1 540 •M ,£= as 6 8 5 5 37 9 6 8 2 11 21 12 9 28 36 24 2 13 18 6 2 6 f i r i 12 0 16 0 6 t £ 0 29 6 5 355 1 u H 73 138 78 74 57 157 43 34 26 82 8 15 44 41 193 23 21 49 76 25 31 16 57 35 38 10 5 ' 12 33 19 10 21 66 39 68 50 1767 X m <& H & 31 23 21 18 21 50 3 5 7 9 6 7 6 6 23 8 4 13 15 3 14 6 10 1] t C t «• f. 0 14 5 3 5 2 6 16 8 390 o X 5 9 17 4 9 8 10 2 10 3 22 2 1 5 8 20 9 1 10 12 0 5 12 5 0 f ] 1 11 4 0 6 8 4 12 6 245 1 3 122 166 96 75 210 82 53 53 34 103 14 20 55 68 253 38 27 59 91 34 55 24 66 40 51 8 22 17 39 28 11 36 71 45 78 49 2285 e o en O.

The Colflesh vote here is considered in good part the result of undercover work by professional politicians. It is believed that the defeat of Colflesh. In. the state was a blow for the professionals. , DEPUTY TREASURER TO TOUR TOWNS TO COLLECT PENSION For the convenience of Kossuth people In paying the old age pension tax, Treasurer M. J.

It is understood that a plan to enlarge the association's activities to cover the county will be proposed. At present the association is limited to business within the incorporate limits of Aigona.

More democratic primary ballots were cast than was anticipated, considering that there was. only one major contest. Two years ago there were a few more than 1200 democratic primary ballots, but this year the figure was swelled to 1687 by Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser who led the democratic ticket. Mr. Dahlhauser's lead was caused partially by a huge endorsement from his home precinct,, Greenwood, which includes Baa- croft, where he was formerly marshal. Hargreaves for Sheriff. Gilbert Hargreaves obtained a. surprisingly easy victory over "William Ricklefs, Titonka, for the republican nomination for sheriff, with a vote of 2030 to 1190. County Recorder J. J. Dooley was the surprise in the democratic camp, pulling away from Eleanor Rahm, St. Benedict, to win, 1313357. Carl W. Pearson, formerly Sweat City, former deputy treasurer, swamped W. S. Windell, 2237-624, in an easy race. He received & 292-25 endorsement in his home precinct of Harrison, which includes Swea City, and carried every precinct in the county. Naturally he was jubilant over the re-suit. Tnrner Carries County. Dan W. Turner carried the county easily for the republican nomination for governor, polling 1767 votes. Colflesh was second with. 667; Knutson, third with 540; and Short trailed with 355. Knutson had been expected to cut a larger figure in this territory, but in recent weeks the gross income tax theory, on which he campaigned, had weakened. In the democratic camp Governor Herring had an easy time, polling 1356 to Finch 156 and Zylstrfc 117. . ,; Two Supervisor Battles. The battle for supervisor in the* fourth and fifth districts turned- into a four-way free-for-all, witht six candidates in the fourth and eight in the fifth. Supervisor Morris, in the fourth, and Supervisor Heiken, in the fifth, were renomtri- ated by the republicans. Morris vras- opposed by Paul Nemitz, Bancroft. whom he defeated, 646-297. Heiken: won out in a field of six with 333 votes. The others were; Arnold, 129; Hagge, 282; Holcomb, 11$; Hovey, 89; and Smith, 48. In the fourth district the result of a red-hot battle for the democratic nomination will have to> await the official canvass next. week. Leo Delperdang and , JjEr. O'Donnell ran a neck and necfc. race, O'Donnell leading, 175-170. J. P. Mousel, also Bancroft, was third with 109. and F, X. Wilhelmi trailed with 61, Democrats in the fifth nominated William Baum over L. C. Batten, 182-81. Move to Fill G. 0, P. Ticket? A move to fill the republican. ticket is seen in the writing in p£ names for district court clerk, auditor, supervisor in the second district, and coroner, for all of which there were no republican candidates in the primary.
