The discussion of regulations for future caucuses caused a ripple of excitement, otherwise the business was done practically by acclamation. Samuel Mayne was chosen temporary chairman when tho convention called to order at 11 o'clock, and on taking the chair made a splendid little speech on tho conduct of the business of Iowa, answering the speech of the night before by M. F. Healoy. Mr. Mayno has become an effective public speaker and no one could have more clearly or co- 102 E.

Tho report of the committee to prepare rules for a primary election system was made to the committee on resolutions. It was in two parts, the first providing for two-hour caucuses, and the second for a ballot on candidates. The first part was accepted, and the second was tabled by a vote of its friends, tho idea being that such a plan to bo a success must have substantially a unanimous support. When the report came up Intho convention the two- hour caucus was adopted. The permanent organization found Mr. Mayne in tho chair, J. F. Schaible of Whlttemore and C. J. Lenander of Bancrbft, secretaries. Balloting at once began on candidates. But one ballot was taken on any office. Dor treasurer Spencer received \2» votes to Roman's 22; for sheriff Samson had 94, Keith 16, Hackman 41: for eu P 6 "T tendent, Reed had 1104, Slagle 20i, Connor 17, Lilly 3; for surveyor, Tel- ller had 115, Foster 30. Barton and He is n successful man in his own business and will be a valuable addition to the board. All in all it is as strong a ticket as has ever been nominated in the county. It will continue that excellent public service that has given Kossuth an exceptional reputation in this part of Iowa. The nulo8 for Caucuses. The important paragraphs of the rules adopted for holding caucuses hereafter are as follows: The convention for the election of delegates to state and district conventions shall be held on notice by the county chairman, published not less than four weeks, provided that the call for the said convention is made public in time, and the primaries in the several precincts shall bo held on the Friday next proceeding, ton days notice of the place and hours to be given by the precinct committoeman.

The convention appeared unusually good natured and adjourned early. Apples and cigars were set up by tho lucky men and the campaign opens auspiciously. The Ticket. Every man on the ticket is well known. Everyone is known to his credit in business relations and official relations. Everyone has a host of friends tho county over. At tho head is Col. Spencer, who came to Algona in 1870, and who for 27 years has been an active and influential citizen. He has been a model official in the treausuror's office, and everyone who has had business there has been genially received and promptly attended to. Col. Spencer spent nearly five years in the war, and his escape from prison is one of the thrilling chapters of war history. Everybody knows that his election means a continuance of the 2 ood service tho county has had. Sheriff Samson came to the county eight years ago, agent for the John Paul lumber company at Whlttemore. His popularity as a salesman made him 7 . l -i l --_!.„ nn ^*i» n /1 V»ia j\ll ^IllLlltVl 1UO in_iiw *v»* w»»w — •• delegates to county conventions shall bo open for at least two hours, between 1 o'clock and 0 o'clock p. m.

Iltilo Insists That Ho Is Hltflit. To tho Editor: In tho solution of the father and son problem, Prof. Lilly gives specific figures showing the combination, Adam Hinchon, Paul Brown and Will Smith, satisfies the conditions of tho problem, which part proves the correctness of my position. I likewise present specific figures showing that Adam Smith, Will Brown and Paul Hinchon equally satisfies the conditions of tho question. Take Adam's land, 513 square rods, and Smith's, 570 square rods, or 63 square rods more than Adam's, lake Will's land, 571 square rods, plus 22 times the square root of 513 square rods and Brown's land, 034 square rods plus 22 times the square root of 513 square rods or 63 square rods more than Will's. Also take Paul's land, one square rod, and Hinchon's 64 square rods, or 63 square rods more than Paul's. From tho above figures wo find one sido of Paul's land one rod and one side NSURANGE.

In office he has been equally pleasant, prompt, and obliging. His work has been kept up, peace and good order have prevailed. He has not hesitated at any time to do his duty. His re-election, also, moans good service nfoentablv rendered. Supt Reed has lived in Kossuth 40 years. In all that time _ and in his many varied business relations nothing to his discredit has ever come to light. As superintendent he has had a remarkable record. With the exception of Supt. Parker at Independence, and Supt Barrett at Osage, now nominated for state superintendent, he stands near the head for continuous terra of service. He has grown inefficiency with the years, has never thought he " owned the office," has been obliging and attentive, and has labored faithfully to of Smith's land 24 rods or 23 rods more than Paul's. Also wo find one sido of Adam's land tho square root of 513 and one sido of Brown's the square root pi 513 plus 11 or 11 rods more than Adam's. , The fact wo cannot exactly obtain tho square root of 513 is immaterial. The problem is not to find out how much land any one owns or the length of any lines, cither exactly or approximately. Neither is it a condition that the sides of the square tracts must bo a whole number of rods in length as is assumed. The figures above given satisfy all tho conditions of tho problem. I therefore insist I am right. Ihe problem is indeterminate. O. P. HALK. Officers and Directors— A. D. Clarke, President, C C. Chubb, Vice Prost., Thos. II. Lantry, Cashier, Geo. L. Galbrafth, Fred.
