Ex-Representative cuibet-tsoii. Sen* ator runk, Gov. Partott ai*e Possibilities, It is now pretty evident that the re* publicans are going to choose a new man for governor at the Cedar Rapids convention. The opposition to Gov. Drake has become so apparent that it Is almost certain that he will not be re- nominated. Ex-Representative Cul" bertson of Carroll is receiving such a boom that his candidacy is state talk. He has always been a strong man in the Tenth district and if nothing new devel- opes is likely to have the district solidly at his back. He would be an excellent candidate and an able and efficient governor. Senator Funk's name is mentioned everywhere, but whether he is considering the office at'all is not known. Senator Punk would be an ideal governor if he should be the nominee of the convention. Lieut. Gov. Parrott's friends are beginning to talk of him again. He also would be strong with the people and his experience in state affairs admirably equips him for the place. A movement is undoubtedly on foot that is going to result in the choice of a new man. It will materialize before Aug. 13. Mr. Mnyiio Endorsed. Mr. Mayne's candidacy for the legislative nomination is presented very strongly in the Bancroft Register. The Register says: " His record the past two winters has been one of hard, fearless and forceful work, always on the right side of every question and measure. By the force of his ability he rose to the front rank of leaders of the house, and If returned would be in a position (impossible to acquire in one term) to successfully champion any meritorious measure for the benefit of this section and his district," The Register says further that such men as Speaker Byers, Senator Gilbertson of Winnebago, Healey of. Fort Dodge, Finch of Humboldt, Temple of Clark, (author of the Temple amendment) and others, leaders in both branches, have expressed to residents of this district great surgrise that there should he any» other thought than the renomination of Representative Mayne by acclamation and his re-election by an unprecedented majority. The following letter, written to an Algona business man by a relative living in central Iowa is given to show Mr. Mayne's standing in Des Moines. It is dated July 5 and is as follows: While at Des Moines Thursday I learned from Mr. Mayne that he would he a candidate for renomination for representative in your district, at the coming county convention, and in this connection I would like to write you how he is regarded by his fellow members; and capital city people generally. " As an employe of the house I became personally very well acquainted with him and thlmt that I know his standing as a member of the house, He was hard working and conscientious in the discharge of his duty and was always on hand at every roll call that affected the interests of his constituency, and took a prominent part in every leading question. Mr, Mayne is chairman of the committee on state university and was a member of some of the most important committees of the house, which shows how he was regarded by Speaker Byers. He has a great many warm friends in both branches of the legislature, who would be pleased to see him re-nominated and elected, I have heard his name prominently mentioned in connection with the speakership in case of his re-election.'' " I trust that you can see your way clear to give Mr, Mayne substantial aid in your ward in the selection : of delegates for the coming convention." Dolllvor em Politics, While down at the Burlington celebration Congressman Dolliyer was interviewed on the situation by the Hawkeye: " What is the status of the tariff bill at present, and how soon do you thing it will become a law," Mr, Dolliver was asked.

PB»K Haggard & Peek [Successorsto Jones* Abstracts, Real Estate,. pleted the discussion of the bill, an.d it will probably be gent to the house about the middle of the week. It is my opinion that all its provisons will be agreed upon shortly, and that it will pass the house in its entirety within ten days, The present extra session of congress will doubtless adjourn then, unless some matter of very great importance should come up, which event fs not at all likely, ,,,..,,... 11 Do you think that this sesson ought to be prolonged and the discussion of financial affaire taken up immediately after the completion of the tariff bill?"

"Whatdo youthiflkof things out here in Iowa; what will the people do to Fred White in November?* r Mr. Dollivef smiled, " I do toot re" gard Mr. White's preietsce itt the .field as being in the least dattgefotts. Fted makes an excellent private citizen, and he is destined to remain a private clti* zen lor a good matly years to come. The fight for the governorship won't be a very stiff one iFDfdke has tiobbdy but Fred White to buck against." Allison on the Tariff, Speaking of the tariff bill Monday Sen* ator Allison said: " I have no doubt that there will he an agreement between the two houses within ten days which will insure the stability of legislation affecting the tariff for the next four or five years at least. I believe that this bill will produce sufHclentrev- enue for the needs of the government and that it will in a great measure restore confidence to such an extent as to insure prosperity.",,The senator's views are shared by all of the republicans in the senate, as weli as those In the house, and notwithstanding the pessimistic views of the minorty it is generally conceded that prosperity is coming. There are ho five men in the senate who are thoroughly satisfied with the bill. Senators Allison, Aldrlch and Platt of Connecticut, who have had charge of it during the debate, would have preferred amendments in many of the schedules but they could not get what they wanted without jeopardizing the chances of the ultimate passage of the measure. The bill will be signed within twenty-four hours after it reaches the president. He is anxious to have this whole question settled at the earliest possible moment, and while he would prefer, as he has said to several gentlemen who 1 have called on him, a great many changes, he will allow no grass to grow under his feet, but he will attach his signature to the measure which represents the views of the majority of his party at the earliest possible moment after the opportunity is offered him. ' "Wants Senator Funk. Britt News: Whom shall we have for governor? This is a question which will take the attention of our people from now until the standard bearer is chosen, and without offering anything in disparagement of any other candidate, we wish to name our first choice as Hon. A. B. Funk, editor of the Spirit Lake Beacon, and one of the oldest—if not the oldest—members in the senate in service. Doubtless there are other candidates whose qualifications are excellent, hut in our judgment none of them surpass those of Senator Funk. He is yet in the prime of life, and yet is ripe in the experience which tends to fit him for that office. His long experiences in the legislative branches of our government render him perfectly familiar with the laws and their purposes and would stand him in good stead in their proper execution. He is conservative and therefore safe. Nothing hasty or ill-advised would ever be charged to his administration. He is a man whom all who know him delight to honor and in our opinion would be an ideal governor. - - Lilces J. R. Jones. Ledyard Leader: J. R. Jones candHate for representative, was in Ledyard Tuesday and while here dropped in for a chat with the Leader force. Mr. Jones has always been a republican and an earnest worker for the party and we believe the people of Kossuth county could find no one that would represent the people and republican party any better than he would. We hope to see Mr. Jones remembered at the coming county convention. ENDOBBE THE HOSPITAL. The Kossuth County Medical Society Discuss the New Hospital at Iowa City. ' . ' '" •:'.."•,.''
