AND- FARM MACHINERY HARDWARE. Meet to Elect Delegates to the State fcoiiveiitiob But Talk About County Polities. In spite of the fact that the call for the democratic county convention was studiously silent about a candidate for the legislature, that was the real feat* ure of interest at the gathering last Wednesday and was quietly discussed among the delegates. The tide of sentiment was plainly in the direction of Mayor Chrlschilles, who devoted his time to heading off the movement. Nothing but a positive refusal to run, however, is likely to let him out. His fitness to nil the position with credit is generally recognized, and be combines many elements of strength politically, among others ablity to go on the stump and make a vigorous presentation of the issues. If he should positively decline to be considered, the suggestion of Thos. Sherman of Bancroft is being much discussed. Mr. Sherman is popular with everybody and would be a strong man with the voters. Another of the likely young men among the democrats is E. J. Murtagh of . Burt. For a practical business representative at Des Molnes, no better man could be chosen. All three are on the delegation to Des Molnes today, and they can fix it up among themselves. The business of selecting delegates was quickly disposed of. The boys evidently wanted an excursion, and a regular picnic - party was made up, those present to cast the vote of the county. The list is as follows: E. J. Murtagh, Jas. Taylor, J. H. Sheridan, J. W. Sullivan, E. G. Rich, Thos. Mo- Govern, Horace Mann, Geo. Lunn, A. H. Nafus, Oscar Norman, B. F. Guthrie, J. J. Ryan, J. T. Chrischilles, Thos. Sherman, Aug. Krause, Guy. M. Butts, Prof. VanErdwyk, C. D. Pettibone, Ed. Weisbeck, and H. J. Thompson. J. L. Bonar was chosen county chairman. He will conduct an active and aggressive campaign. Blmetalllsta. The bimetallic, silver republican, and populist conventions were held at Burt Saturday, and at these, too, local matters occupied the chief place. It Qrops out that they have a program which may go through, and which is not a bad one for the combined opposition. As we get it they will in a few weeks call a legislative convention and nominate J. M. Farley of Whittemore to go to Des Moines, leaving it to the democrats to endorse him. Mr. Farley is one of the leading republicans of tbe county to adopt the silver cause as expounded by Mr. Bryan, and was an active worker last fall. He is a man of wide acquaintance and much means and could make a.lively canvass if he should decide to go into the field actively. The silver republicans do not propose to turn everything over and it is more than likely that they will control the legislative nomination. The following delegates were chosen to go to Des Molnes. They are a representative body of men: J. M. Farley, C. C. Chubb, Ernest Bacon, O. F. Hale, O. H. Richards, H. F. Shipley, Geo. S. Angus, A. H. Barber, Geo. E. Marble, J. E.

In presenting their program to the palefaces this band of mighty warriors say: "The Wolf shoot will be conducted upon the square, and may or may not become 'an annual,' depending upon encouragement offered by the wise men of our land and the pleasure of braves beyond the 'Father of Waters.' "In presenting this program the man* agement has departed somewhat from the conventional, and while It takes chances of being knocked overboard, it will go right on with its departures with but a single thought, i. e., that of pleasing the majority of the braves in attendance. "It is confidently expected that this tournament will exceed in the matter of entries and great importance anything that has ever gone before-^the record-breaking Du Pont tournament of August last and the grand American handicap of 1897 not forgotten or excepted, After much smoking of the 'pipe of peace,'and as the result of many 'powwows,' beautiful grounds have been carefully selected across a silvery body of water from the gathering of wigwams known to the palefaces as Clear Lake. "Upon a beautifully shaded promi- tory extending: out into the water, the 'Wolves' will pitch their tepees, and it is to this place you are cordially invited, whether paid expert, manufacturers' agent, pie-face or pan-foot, and no matter from whence you hail. "Accepting the invitation, you will be considered a good Indian and invited to adjust your difficulties with fire- stick and smokeless powder, under the rules prescribed and the direction of Hot Weather Is:-herb and you will want to drink.

The populists selected the following delegates; Messrs. Woloott of Bancroft; Hofius and Rockefeller of Algona; Mark Parsons of Oresco; Thos, Hannaand A. B. Sheldon of Burt; and Aug. Krause of Fenton, The populists side in with tbe siver republicans in tbe matter of representation, and will doubtless come in for their share in the division of the county ticket. They also have sent a lot of brainy men to Des Moines, If the democratic delegates get away with our silver republicans and populists they will have to do differently than J, J, Ryan did at the Dubuque convention, • THE BIG OLEAR LAKE SHOOT, A Curious Program Gotten Up By Clms. Grlram—Jolm G, SmltU to Act as .Referee, The American Field publishes a prospectus of the coming Clear Lake shooting tournament that is a curiosity; The program for the Indian'Wolf tournament, to be held at Clear Lake, Iowa, on July 20,81, gg and 33, is now being printed, and will be ready for distribution in a few days, and having been given the privilege of inspecting the "dummy" before it WRS given into the bands of the .printer, we believe we are divulging no secret by giving our readers in advance a few of its most ,es* The tournament will program that it is not sought to charge one Indian more than another for privileges. Three days' pow-wow and war- dance with inanimate targets. The fourth day will be devoted to the 'dog- dance' and live birds. Palefaced regulations known as American Shooting Association rules will govern. Two sets of traps will be operated upon the Sargent system. "Chief 'Moon-face' will be respected as supreme ruler, selecting aids and managers of the 'colored fire' from the ranks of visiting tribes." The program for the first three days will consist of ten events each day, 20 single targets each event, $2.50 entrance, $15 added, five moneys. On Friday, July 23, will occur the contest for an elegant silver cup, costing $50, a present from a Chicago paleface. This cup is offered as a trophy to the winner of this, the concluding event of the "Wolf Shoot," which will be at live birds, the winner to own the cup absolutely; 25 live birds, $25 entrance, to include cost of birds; $50 added money by the "Wolves." Division, four moneys, 40, 30, 20 and 10 per cent. Mr. John G. Smith a great "medicine man," and president of the Iowa State Sportsmen's Association, of the Algona (Iowa) tribe, will referee this event. The traps used will be those invented by the great chief "Moon-face," and will be operated by his papooses. Every shooter in the country should secure a copy of this program and as many as can should attend this shoot, for it will undoubtedly be as interesting as the program is novel. $3.1 PER ACRE And Ten Years'.time in which to pay for it. Of course you can't buy improved farms for that, but the Northern Pacific Railway Company has hundreds of thousands of acres of £1 FARMING LANDS in Central Minnesota, which it is selling to actual settlers at from $2.50 to $3.00 per acre, on TEN YEARS' TIME. The prices are Cheap, but The Lands are Good. Fine soil, splendid water, best of markets and near churches, schools and railroad stations. The famous Red River Valley lands at $4.00 to $8.00 per acre. a.
