CAMPAIGN OPENS SEPT. 25, BEPtJBLlOANS THEN GET ACTION, Hancock County Has Troubles of its Own —Dolliver and the Convention— Other Political Notes. The republican state central committee had a meeting in DOS Moines Thursday. It was practically agreed at that timo to open the speaking campaign Sept. 25. Leslie M. Shaw was present and put his time without reserve at the disposal of the committee. The Trouble Over In Ilnncock. The republicans of tho representative district composed of the counties of Wright and Hancock are having trouble of their own just now. Based on the republican vote cast last year, Wright county is entitled to 10 delegates and Hancock county 11 in the representative convention. But the Hancock county politicians insist that when Representative Hinman was nominated there was an understanding that Hancock was to bo given tho nomination this time, and the member of tho committee refuses to join in the call for the convention, unless Hancock county shall be given equal representation. The matter will bo submitted to tho state central committee, but it is hard to see how that tribunal can settle tho controversy unless both parties agree to abide by its decision. Unless Wright county comes to terms Hancock republicans say they will nominate 1 a candidate of their own. DR. PRESTON, Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Mason. City, 1 Operations performed.

T EGAL BLANKS- TEE STANDARD FORMS Let Up n While. The Burt Monitor indulges in rather small politics when it says: "The papers of Algona may support Algonajs candidates, but it has just been proved that the voters of tho county don't always do just as the newspapers recommend, and it may yet be demonstrated a second timo." The "papers of Algona" both endorsed Mr. Mayne's candidacy as against Algona men, and neither one, so far as we have noticed, has taken any part in the contest for county offices. THE UPPER DES MOINES has said ten words for outside candidates where it has one for the Algona candidates. Isn't it possible for men to run on their merits, and for the outside newspapers to be fair? What reason is there for this everlasting nonsense about Algona? As It Loolcs in Gormaiiln. Standard: It would be a hard matter to conjecture who is in tho lead for the various offices, except for superintendent, and for this office it is conceded by those who have been over the field that tho Reed sentiment is very strong. A few weeks ago there were some doubts about the sheriff sentiment; but since the people have begun to take more interest in county politics, it seems that Samson is rising in popularity. We have heard nothing in opposition to Col. Spencer, nor Mr. Tellier. _ Give It a Fair Trial. Bancroft Register: The call for the Greenwood primary to elect convention delegates will be published next week, and we would like to see all the republicans of this township turn out and vote. Give the new method a fair trial. GREAT SOTDAYjm WESLEY. Tho Methodist Church Is Dedicated Free Ifrora Debt— News Notes. WESLEY, Iowa, Aug. 21. — Sunday was a gala day for the Methodist people of Wesley. Rev. B. I. Ives, D. D., of Auburn, N. Y., was present, and rededicated the church, which cost $1,350 for the new improvements that have been put on it. The morning opened up bright and clear and by 10:30 o'clock the church building was well filled. Rev. Ives opened the services and preached for about 40 minutes. He then presented to the congregation a statement of the cost and the debt yet to be provided for on the building, which was $650, and asked the people to help clear it up. In about 30 minutes the entire amount was secured. The dedication ceremonies were postponed until the evening services on account of the lateness of the hour. In the evening at 7:30 the house was well filled, and after the sermon by Rev. Ives the house was duly dedicated to the worship of Almighty God. The Epworth League rally at 3 o'clock in the afternoon was well attended and enjoyed by all present. Rev. Maynard of Britt talked for about 20 minutes on the lines of league work, and Rev. Southwell of Algona, followed with a 20 minute talk. Rev. Ives was called on and closed the service with talk along the line of the league work, all of which has infused new life into the Epworth League of Wesley. Take the day all through, it was oue of rejoicing for the Methodist people of Wesley. The church building as it now stands completed is worth $2,500 and is seated with pews furnished by the Manitowoo, Wis., church seating company, which are considered by all who have seen them to be the finest in this part of the state. We will say that Rev. C. E. Plummer, with the assistance of the board of trustees, is to be commended for his untiring efforts in pushing this work to a finish. This week we are called on to announce the death of Mrs. T. A. Talbott, which occurred Saturday morning, Aug. 29. Mrs. Talbott had not been sick long, and many of her friends and neighbors thought she would soon recover and they felt no little surprise when they learned Q* her death. Mrs. Talbott was but 25 years old, and leaves held at the house at 4 p. m. Saturday, conducted by Rev. Plummer, her pastor, and the remains were taken to Cedar Rapids to be interred in the family burying ground. Mr. and Mrs. Talbott came to Wesley a little over a year ago, and by her genial and pleasant way she made many friends here, who now mourn her departure from among them. Grandma Emmons, a worthy old lady, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. M. Goodman, Saturday morning, Aug. 29. The funeral was held at 4 p. m, Saturday, conducted by A; L. Tryon. The remains were interred in the Wesley cemetery. Mrs. Emmons came here about ]2 years ago from New York, and has resided with her children, and was highly respected by all that knew her. The Public Schools. The fall term of the public schools commences Monday, Sept. 0. It is very dosira- blo that all pupils be present tho first day of school. Persons who contemplate sending children for tho first timo will ploaso note tho following rule adopted by tho board: "Primary pupils who have never attended any school will bo admitted only during the first two weeks of tho spring and fall terms." Children under five years of ago are not entitled to admission. "To prevent, if possible, tho necessity of opening a room outside of our school buildings, pupils below tbo Sth grade living north of Call street and oust of Thorlngton street will attend the Third ward school. Pupils who go to tho Third ward school and who last spring wore in classes from A 5 to B 8, go to room 4; from B 3 to A 5 go to room 8; from A 1 to B 8, go to room 2; others in room 1. In tho central building, all above tho Sth grade (i. e. Sth grade last spring) go to room 10; A 8. B 8, A 7, room fl; B 7, A (>, room 8; B 0. A15, room 7; B 5, A 4, room 0; B 4, A 8, (Miss Barnt's) room 5; A3, (Miss Salisbury's) B 8, A 2, room 4; B 2, A1, B 1, room 3; all of tho others to room 1, where they will be divided and some sent to room 2. A number of the text books have boon changed. Arrangements have boon made so that a now book will bo given for an old one in uso without cost to tho pupil. Bring to school all of the books you have been using and you will bo told what books to change. The hicth school course of study lias boon extended, furnishing adequate preparation for admission to college. Tho English course contemplates a practical education for those who will probably not enter college. A class in German will probably bo formed this term. Those increased advantages are open to all of sebool ago. Let every pupil strive to keep his attendance and punctuality perfect, N. SPKNCEU, Supt. Don't Go to Alaska.
