PAGE EIGHT THURSDAY JUNE CONVENTIONS TO PICK STATE DELEGATIONS Lieutenant Governor Race Is a Toss-Up .Twixt Four. ! ( | The .biennial republican and democratic county conventions will be lield at Algona next Saturday morning at 11 o'clock. The democrats, who became the majority party at tltie last election, will meet dn the courtroom, and the republicans will meet at the Odd Felows hall over the Anderson meat market and the Lusby drug store. Post Office (Continued from page 1.) fort, effectively killed by'the preasion. The usual discussion of sites has again been brought up, and three apparently have the edge on' any others. They are the quarter block east of the Advance office, the quarter block south of >tilie forme* Kossuth County State bank, and the lots across the street south from the Legion hall. An outside tlou in the betting is the qu block east of the Kent Motor ^^., sold recently to the Champlin Oil company. Corner Location Wanted. A corner location is one of the requirements in a postofice and for some reason sou corners are favored. At times in the past plats of available lots in the business center of town have been sent to the department of buildings and inspections have been K. S. McWhorter, Burt, chair- but the corner idea was , lican convention to State Comptroller C. agreed upon by fThe republican man of the republican county central committee, will call the repub- order, and . B. Murtagi'i, IDes Moines, democratic county dhiainnan, will call the democratic county convntion to order. Each convention will name its) town presiding officer and secretary, and committees will be nam- ted in such, manner as may be the convention. convention will consist of precinct delegations chosen at the recent primary elac- Ition. The democrats, in accordance iwit!h their custom, will let any recognized democrat attend and have a voice in the whether ejected or not. To Choose State Delegations. The chief 'business of both conventions will be to choose delegations to the state conventions to toe held at Des Moines Wednes-' pay, July 18. The democrats are! entitled to 13 delegates, but as a atule they choose a double delegation giving each delegate a half vote. The republicans are entitled brought up sooner or later. The ten-year lease with the Me Enroes for the present postoffic building will not be a stumblin block, for government leases ca be canceled at any time. Bids on the project will constl tute another major difficulty Bids on the Des Moines additio were opened at Washington in Ap ril, but the low bid was $408,000 while the allotment was only $383, 788, and efforts to get the latter fig ure raised have so far been fruit less. ) te de- aa has three n' any block , the onnei* id the from loca- uarter • Co., in Oil nf thn Ji LUC qlfp £tim, tn&cist in the n the been dings, tnade, Iways LOCAL OVER Herbert .Prendlt, employed in tihe 'Bfl(tsford lumiber company office at Mankato, spent Sunday with 'his: mottier, Mrs. S.

Don Allan, Davenport, came Tuesday for a week wiUi< her mother, Mrs. J. C. Kresensky. She is the former Mildred Kresensky.

No 'Significance will attadh, to choice of the democratic delegation, for the program is alreac cut and dried, all nominees fo Btate office having .been chosen i the recent primary election. The rsriH pick a delegation and perhap adapt resolutions. Choice of Bhe republican delegation will be of more interesf for there will be three contest over state nominations in the state O. O. P. convention. No candidat for .lieutenant governor, secretary of 'agriculture, or attorney gen 'eral received the 35 .per cent vote [required to nominate. Patterson Now Stands Third. According to a second, correction of figures in the primary returns, on lieutenant governor, Senator Patterson now ranks third Tfae revised figures follow: Nelson, Decorah 68,699 Thompson, Clinton 64 297 Patterson, Burt 62,64£ Cress, Mason City ~ 59,744 Thompson carried S4 counties; Nelson. 26; Pd'terson, 20; Cress, 19. Support for each candidate was widely scattered over the state, in dicaling that as a rule the voters voted blindly. Such being the case, it :s figured th:it county delegations _will not feel bound by Che vote in their respective counties, at least not after the first ballot. The republican state convention will consist ol 23S2 dulegatus. If delegates vote on the first ballot the way their counties went, Nelson will receive 742 votes- Thompson, 647; Patterson, 501; Ctrss 492. No one will have a majority. Jockeying for advantage is expected to begin after the first ballot and it will then be anybody's race. The convention could even (nominate a dark horse. It is likely, however, that one of the primary candidates will be chosen and it is believed ihere that choice will lie between Nelson and Patterson. _ There will also be state conven- aon contests on Attorney General and Secretary of Agriculture. In both cases no candidate received enough votes to nominate. On attorney general Kossuth, gave (Naglestad, of Sioux City, 76& votes; Shaw 669; Mowry, 548; and Swan, 356. Naglestad received the, nigh, vote in the state as well as in. Kossuth. Senator Fred Nelson, Nevada, •received the high vote in both State and here for secretary of agriculture, and seems assured of nomination by the convention, tance he Jacked only one-half of one per cent of enough votes to Momittate in the primary. The Kps- BUth vote was: Nelson 992- Ed 'T 'Davia, 479; Wm. J. Campbell 469- W. H. Rowlands 333. Patterson Seeking ^ Hancock's Support 'Last week's Garner Herald, published by Frank Clark and his son Harold, said: George Patterson, of Burt, candidate for lieutenant-governor, was in Garner Monday in the interest of his candidacy in the coming republican state convention that will name the candidate for the November election. Mr. Patterson is asking for the support of Hancock county claiming he has every county in the eighth congressional district. While he expects that probably Cress will be given first choice because he received the high vote in the primary, he is asking the support if it is shown that Cress had no chance of the nomination. Patterson was a supporter of Dan Turner in the recent primary. 4 Wesley Barber Fined. Melvin Pease, Wesley barber, was fined a dollar and costs of $9.75 in Justice Danson's court last week Wednesday on the charge of drunkenness and disorderly conduct in a public place at Ti ton- ka the day before. He pleaded guilty. Harrington Sinter Dies. Mrs. T. P. Harrington, her son R. J. t and daughter Bernice were called to Warren, 111., Monday by news of the death of a sister of the late Mr. Harrington.

New Beer Counter is Installed by Smoke Shop Here The Smoke Shop has Installed a new beer counter and cooler to take the place of one installed last year. Patronage has for some time required a longer counter. Patrons can now fctand up to a 13^6-tt. counter, where formerly there was not room. The new counter is of mahogany, and it was installed Sunday. There are three faucets, and three kegs are tapped at once. The cooling coils are larger, and permit nearly twice the cooling capacity of' the tors Wolfe, Tttonka, Schwartz, of Fenton, and Haggard and Waller Algona. Editor Coleman, Lu Verne, was about to leave for Whlttemore when he was taken sick. The printers talked code and shop for an hour, after which Mr. Burdine served a veritable ' feast, the piece de resistance of which was roast young pig with stuffing. The editors agreed that they had never eaten anything more appetizing, and many were the compliments for host and chef. Mayor Carmody and Whlttemore business men attended the banquet, and Algona and Bancroft were also represented. A program given by volunteers closed^ the evening. County Confiscate Officers in Clay Gambling Machines Clay county peace officials began a campaign week before last against slot machines, which after many years of suppression, have igain become common, apparently because of the indifference of the present attorney general. The officials seized and tested one of the kind of machines which are played with pictures of fruits. They fed into it $250 in quarters and found that it paid back only $61.75. The profit to the owner was thus $188.25. Dickinson county officials conducted a similar campaign but news of raids elsewhere caused owners of machines at the lake resorts to cease operations and hide the machines. The new outfit includes a three- way mug washing system to meet the requirement of a new state law. eration Saturday. Sunday Mrs. Alfred Wolter, Bancroft, underwent a major operation. Rodger.

Ward (Continued from page 1.) almost covered it when it was found. It Is believed that Mr. Ward thought his car at the edge of the road would be seen and that an Investigation would be made soon after his death. Doctor Evans estimated that 24 hours had elapsed before discovery was made. After investigation Doctor Evans ruled that a coroner's inquest would not have to be held, for the case was plainly a suicide. Ylctlnt Discussed Suicide. Mr. Ward in recent weeks had been despondent for several reasons, A number of bills had piled up, and creditors had been writing him, also writing the postoffice department. It is reported that he had been drinking heavily because of this and other troubles. He was also troubled with mastoidltls. The combination Is believed to have caused temporary insanity. Mr. ty&rA had occasionally discussed suicide, and had argued that it required a brave man instead of a coward to take one's own life. He admitted, however, that suicide was more or less the refuge of one afraid to face the difficulties of lite. Mr. Ward was about 45 years 1 old, and he lhad' 'been a rural mail carrier 14 years. He is survived by SL^°- f '""- .
