The Convention Friday Will Name Candidates for Recorder, Auditor Clerk, and Supervisors. The Democrats Who Favor 16 to i Will Meet Next Week—Notes of the Local Campaign. The Republican county convention comes Friday. The only contest thus far developed is over the county at- torneyshlp. Recorder Randall, Auditor Calkins and Clerk Grose are all conceded renomination. For the county atttn-neysnip ,T. C. Raymond and E. V. Swetting are the announced candidates, while E. H. Clarke is in the field and will have delegates. On account of sickness in his family Mr. Cliirke has made no canvass, but his showing will be creditable. The last time the county had a three cornered contest was when R. J. Danson won alter the delegates sat up till 2 o'clock in the 'morning. If history is to repeat itself the various delegations had better bring along a lunch. Two supervisors a're to be nominated to succeed C. C. hubbandB. F. Smith. No one has suggested except C. A. Molinder City. Democratic Convention. hairtnan Finnell has called "all, tardless of former party, affiliations, ro now favor the free coinage of ?er at the present ratio of 16 to 1, to 'present and take part in the county avention," which is to be held in gona next week Thursday at 11 lock, to name a county ticket. This |l would seem to shut out all the noerats who believe in our present lney system. Some of the old wheel Braes of the party will have a chance Sp'sitonthe fence and see the pro- ggsion go by." ocal Political Notes. I'prof. Rice, the evangelist, spoke at Jurt last evening for free silver. ' Theo. Chrischiiles : returned from fndianapolis yesterday. _He says it fwas a magnificent convention. The stiver meeting at Bancroft last week was well attended. Dr. Cleary is reported to have made a very good speech. Geo, Tiss of Corwith, brother of Mrs. Ike Finnell of the Courier, has organized a McKinley band with a dozen instruments. S. D. Drake speaks tonight at Ger- juania, where a McKinley club is to open with about every voter in the vicinity on the list. S. D. will give them a rousing talk. Rev. Stewart of Britt is in hard luck. He has gone to making free silver speeches and the Corwith Crescent says his congregation have dismissed him. They think with his farm, elevator, and pulpit on his bands be . has enough to do now. Gilmore were celebrated at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Marcus Bird of Meadow township, Tuesday evening at 9 o'clock. The bride wore a becoming costume of white cashmere, in which she looked exceedingly lovely. She was attended by Miss Mabel Gilmore of Algona, a sister of the groom, as bridesmaid, who also wns charmingly attired. The oroom was attended by Marcus Bird, Jr., a brother of the brido. 'Iho ceremony took place in the presence of a large assembly of invited guests. After the ceremony and congratulations a bountiful repast was served and a highly social time enjoyed. Ihe presents were numerous, handsome and costly.* The happy pair left yesterday for St. Paul, where they will spend a week, and then return to Spencer and take up home life in the residence of David Painter in the west part of the city.

Inquire at this office.—23 Whoever wrote up the Dolliver meeting in the Courier said Allison was in the senate when the act of 1873 was passed. It is a small mistake, but it is a mistake nevertheless, Allison did not enter the senate until March, 1873, and left the lower house in 1871. During those two years he was at home in Diibjaque, . .. ' The Burt MoKinley club had a meeting last Friday evening at which "Harvey Ingham spoke. Burt has a splendid public hall and is a splendid town to turn out to public meetings. Buvt has some republicans also, who ought to be put stumping on their own account, They are up to date on the issues of this campaign, Geo- Bookman of the Ruthven Appeal heard Dolliver in Algona.

W. J. Burton's team took a little run about Ledyard a few days ago. The Leader says they were stopped within be city limits, so W. J. was not com- elled to "flat foot" it home. Helen Beard, while at play with ome children at Germania, aocident- lly swallowed a pin, lodging in her hroat and preventing the windpipe rora operating. The pin was ox- racted. The Swea City Herald says: One ay last week a little child up near Sast Chain got hold of a bottle of arbolic acid and drank enough of the ontents to cause the little one's death tie following day. Gladys, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jomstook, had a leg badly broken Thursday at Emraetsburg, while try- ng to catch on to a delivery wagon. The Tribune says the little one is dong as well &e could be expected. Alex. McRae at Estherville took a ork to dislodge a sheaf that had aught in the driving belt of a thresh- ng machine. The belt caught the ork tines, jerked the handle / out of iis hands and whirled It around taking lim squarely on the jaw, No bones were broken, but it looks as though be jad a bad attack of mumps. Dr, Kenefick of Algona assisted Dr, Kenneyat Wesley, Thursday last, in •ernoving about seven inches of bone rom the leg of Maro Ash's little girl. The Reporter says: About seven months ago she was pushed off the sidewalk by a playmate and injured the limb to such an extent that most of the time she has been unable to walk.,. The operation was u splendid succejjs, ".-\&$UeMr8, Krantz wtvs engaged in di'ivjng a hay rake last week, Tuesday at Sexton, the tongue separated from the neck-yoke and fell to the ground, which caused her to fall behind the team and in front of the rake. While in this position the team took fright and ran some distance, dragging her along the ground, The Wesley Reporter says she. finally escaped with several severe bruises on different parts of her body.

The publication last week of the report that Perry Cuplin of West Bend had been sued for $10,000 for breach of promise, brings the information that Clarke & Cohenour of Algona are attorneys for the plaintiff, Miss Mattie Milner, Instead of being a Kpssuth county lady, as reported, Miss Milner's parents live in Charles City, and she was a school teacher in West " Bend, The facts as related in the petition afford ample warrant for the suit, if they are sustained at the trial. It was while Miss Milner was teaching at West Bend that she became engaged to Mr. Cupliu, and it was at hidfcflfgent request that she went east to complete her musical education, as he was very anxious that she should be an accomplished musician. While she was gone, without any warning from him, ehe learned that he had married Ma present wife. She came to Algpna and consulted Mr. Clarke without giving any names.
