Lovrien, Spencer attorney and former district judge, will i>e a candidate for nomination to a judgeshtp at the republican convention of the 14th judicial district to be held about the middle of July. That is what those on the "inside" are saying. Lovrien, tjues- tioned this week, stated that he had been giving the matter deep consideration and had reached a decision, but did not care to make a formal statement on the subject before at least the end of the week. He stated that he had been visited by delegations from, Kossuth, Buena Vista, and Humboldt counties, and had been assured support of the delegates from those three counties should he decide to become a candidate. To Oppose DeLand. Two nominees will be selected at the convention to succeed Judges DeLand, Storm Lake, and George A. Heald, Spencer. It is expected that both DeLand and Heald will be candidates to succeed themselves. Lovrien's candidacy, should it develop, probably would be aimed against DeLand. In 1930 DeLand won nomination over Lovrien in the convention. Lovrien charges that DeLand was nominated by a vote-trading deal. . 1C!) south from Algona is practically as- Huied or approximately five milos, Supervisor W. E.

Approximately $80,000 of new federal emergency relief funds will be allotted to Kossuth county for road-building purposes, it is expected. No. 16!) is already in almost complete condition for paving. Unly a little work preliminary to laying cement would have to be done. It costs approximately $20,000 to pave a mile of road, so ordinarily $80,000 would be only enough to pave four miles. However, the work already dona cuts the mileage to a point where five miles can be laid for $80,000. The new stretch will extend the paving from the present cut-off at the fairgrounds corner to a point a mile or so south of the intersection of No. 1C. 1 ) with the road cast to Irvitigton. When work will be started depends on conditions yet to be made known, but the federal grant has already been appropriated by congress. It is estimated that five or six weeks work will be supplied to Kossuth unemployed by this paving project.

May More to Algona. In case Lovrien is a candidate, and his friends declare he will be, and is nomlaated and elected, it Is probable he will move his residence to some county where there Is no judge. In all probability this would be Kossuth county, the largest county in the district and one which has not had a resident judge for years. Counties in the 14th judicial district are Kossuth, Humboldt, Pocahontas, Palo Alto, Emmet, Dickinson, Clay, and Buena Vista.

Trauger, local office manager, they inspected offices at Storm Lake, Spirit Lake, and Spencer. Algona would have had a still better rank, Mr. Pfund said, if it were not located in a rural district where placements are fewer than in manufacturing districts. Doctor Andrews Honored. Dr W D.

Men Are Ugly. The tramps, usually ugly, are mostly professional bums, the bulk of them between 35 and 40. They, are not the harmless, philosophical variety pictured occasionally in magazines or on the screen. A few are older, and occasionally an old man is seen. There are youngsters on the road, but they rarely come through this section of the country till the wheat harvest season clos"- es in the Dakotas, Nebraska, and Kansas. The younger tramps -are often willing to work. The daily papers have reported girl and women bums, but they keep to main transcontinental railroad lines and are rarely seen in this part of the country. 65 Blue Eagles on Display Here, Boy Scouts Find A survey of business institutions in Algona was made .Friday by boy scouts under direction of P.

Fish and Howell were held by;' Emmetsburg authorities till the ac-* cident could be investigated, bufe were released Tuesday morning^ and no charges were filed against them. Coroner Woodbridge, Em-* metsburg, held an inquest, and a, verdict of accidental death was re-* turned Tuesday by a coroner's, jury. Death Probably Instant. The three young men were ent route to a dance at Electric Parlt» ; on Lost Island lake, near Ruthven. Fish and Howell were in the cab on the truck, and Weir rode on thai platform behind the cab. The youth must have rolled front he truck, for his head was frac-- ured, which caused instant death. !t is believed that he fell on his lead from the rapidly moving; ruck. Fish and Howell did not misa Weir till they had passed Emmeta- )urg. When they discovered that; was gone, they turned around and drove back over the route several miles. Then they figured that tie had fallen off, but had picked, up a ride and would show up later, so they continued to the dance. Weir's body was discovered by a* passing motorist, and Sheriff Bert Montgomery, Emmetsburg, and. Coroner Woodbridge, were called. It was at first believed that Weir* had been the victim of a hit-and- run driver. On investigation the youth's name was found, and it was discovered that he started for the dance with the other two mem. Companions Are Held. Fish and Howell were then taken, into custody by Sheriff Montgomery at the dance, where they freely- admitted that Weir had started out with them, but denied that they knew of his death, though they knew he was missing and must have fallen from the truck. They said they had both talked with. Weir at times during the six mile ride before he fell out, but thai noise from the truck stopped conversation till they tried to attract his attention at Emmetsburg and found him missing. The holding of the two boys from. Sunday night till after the inquest was a matter of formality, and there were no charges against: them at any time. Funeral Held Yesterday.
