Together? fcstion offered at the meet- that the organization seek •he district divided, Clay, Dickinson, and Emmet to bo one district, Palo Alto and Kosluth the other. Reaction ,ln Palo Alto aid KOS- suth to this plan has not had time to mobilize. It is bellcvjd tluit there would be no objectioniin Kossuth, t>ut Palo Alto opinloi'i ini K ht be contrary, the reason bei'ng that Palo Alto might fear thai KOK- suth's preponderance in voting strength would give candidates from this county an advantages over Palo Alto candidates and tijus result In senate representations from Kossuth most or all of the (inie. In any event the proposal rims Up against the constitutional provision that the senate shall consist of 60 members. There nro 5h members now, therefore an adliitional senator from the territory com-1 prised In the present dislridt could, 1 not be provided for without rearrangement elsewhere, anil that) might Involve statewide redistrict- Ing. The question is thus not local but of general importance. Requirements Obscnnl. The meaning of constitutional requirement that "at the next -session of the general assembly following the taking of the suite and national census they [the senators] shall be apportioned among tlw several counties or districts of the state according to population as shown by the last preceding census" is obscure. There is no "state and national census" and never has been. A national census is taken in every! tenth year ending in "0." Formerly ; a state census was taken every j (tenth year ending in "5," and this, 1 was required by the state constitu-' tion, but that provision was recently repealed by popular vote Perry M'Donald, Burt Lumberman, 76 Years Young 0- I'.

As regards the injustice involved m tho present state districting, it lias been pointed out that tho 47th district labors under no greater disadvantage than some centers of population. For example, Polk county, with a population of 173,00 has only one senator, and Woodbury Sioux City, with 102,000, also lias only one. This was the result of a constitu- I Rev. It. w.

He will be remembered as the motivating spirit i for the erection at Titonka of an an all-brick church building, one ol the finest church edifices in the county. tional amendment adopted a few years ago which aimed to prevent dominance of population centers in (.ho senate. Nevertheless it is considered that, the gross discrimination now existing calls for correction. In all but four districts of the state the poulation is under that of this dis- |trict. In 25 districts—half the | whole number—the population is I only half that of this district, i In southeastern Iowa some single counties elect senators. In three districts the population is only about that of Kossuth alone, and in one county which has a senator to itself—Jackson—tho population is some 7,000 under that of Kossuth alone. * : C'CC Camp Quarantined.

Pangburn, Long Beach, Calif., who, many years ago, owned and lived in the present Overmyer home, writes that Mrs. Pangburn has mostly recovered from a long and severe sickness of last winter, but 4s still in rather poor health. She was one of the Daniel Rice girls, and her mother now lives with Mrs. G-. L. Taylor, Sioux City, another Rice daughter. Mr. Pangburn is apparently still an unreconstructed republican. A letter of his which was recently published in the Long Beach Press- Telegram appears elsewhere in today's Advance—if not crowded out. When Mr. Pangburn lived here he owned farms in north central Iowa, and it is believed that he still owns some or all of them. He is a lawyer, but did not practice law here and apparently is not in the practice at Long Beach. The two Pangburn daughters are both married. One, it is believed, lives at Long Beach, the other not far away. * E. L. Gilbert Buys North End Acreage Two north Kossuth farms have been sold, the Bancroft Register reports. A. J.
