"OUT" GROUP IS TOO STRONG FOR THE "INS" Location of Judges is Basis of Scrap in Convention. The story of the republican judicial convention which nominated £ W. Stillman, Algona, and Fred Hudson, Pocahontas, for the two Posts to be filled in November election is the story of two stron groups, combinations of "ins" and "outs." Kossuth county has not had judge since W. B. Quarton was on the bench more than 30 years ago. Pocahontas has never had a resident judge. Buena Vista coua- as had a resid ent judge since , except for a couple of years Clay county was tied up tight with Buena Vista, hence if one of the judges had to be beaten, both had to go. "Outs" Had to Combine. Because of the strong "in combination—Buena Vistaf Clay and Dickinson—with a total of 35 votes, because Palo Alto, having ™ r ,f1 ei V Udge ' was therefor! neutral, the other four counties had to combine in order to have a chance. The combination of Kossuth Humboldt, Pocahontas, and Emmet had a total voting strength or-4,i votes and so needed only a vote and a half from the Palo Alto .split vote of 3 2-3 votes to each candidate to tie up the convention. "Outs" Banks Hold Firm. Each "out" county had a candidate, and the four counties agreed that two of the four must be chosen. This put it up to Bue na Vista and Clay to name the HM°- ? ut , Buena Vlsta and Clay did not give up easily. Their delegations worked day and night though, as It .-turned out, vainly in the effort to break down the out" combination. . During the convention rumors and bear" stories were constantly circulated, both by intent and as a natural outgrowth of the excitement of the struggle. Pressure on Palo Alto. Early in the convention it became apparent that pressure was being brought to force Palo Alto to give up its neutral position and swing to Heald and DeLand. There were at least two enthusiastic king makers" In the Palo Alto delegation who wished to do it. Wiser heads pointed out that this would probably mean thai Davidson, who cames up for re- nomination two years from now would then be the object of the wrath in the four counties. Palo Alto "Sticks." The balloting was the same for three hours Monday morning and on Monday afternoon till 4 o'clock The- Palo Alto delegation then called a caucus, and this filled both camps with excitement. But before a vote could be taken, and when it appeared some kind of split was coming, a motion for adjournment to Tuesday morning was carried. But the only change, if it may be called a change, which took place in the night was the strengthening of Palo Alto's determination to go down the line playing no favorites. The first three ballots Tuesday morning showed this definitely to Buena Vista, Clay, and Dickinson. Twentieth Ballot Decisive. Finally, on the fourth ballot Tuesday, the 20th ballot of the convention, Buena Vista and Clay Swung to Stillman and Hudson, and their votes, added to the votes already for these two candidates, were sufficient for nomination. The convention was thus all ovar. Personalities did not enter into the contest at any time. The only thing at issue was location of the judges. Because Buena Vista had had a judge for some 70 years, it was felt that that county should retire; and because Clay was tied to Buena Vlsta,. both present judges had to be let out. To Retain Court Reporters. Dickinson county wanted Heald and DeLand retained, at least fieald, because under the new arrangement Dickinson will be far 'ram a judge.'DeLand has been udge since Would'war days'; and Heald hsis been judge eight years. According to a resolution of the convention, the two new judges Will continue to retain H. J. Kit- .leman, Storm Lake, and Matthew C. Grler, Emmetsburg, as court reporters. It Is believed Mr. Kit- leman will be Mr. Hudson's reporter; Mr. Grier, for Mr. Stillman.. M. P. Haggard headed the local delegation with the other attead- ng members R. J. Harrington, D. D. and T. C. Hutchison, J. D. Lowe, H. W. Miller, G. D. Shuai- way, B. J. VanNess, M, P. Weaver, Geqrge W. Patterson, Hugh Raney, A. J. Chrlsteneen, of Swea City, D, E.

Norman Hemiller, Livermore, who was serving a 30-day sentence for writing bad checks, escaped from the county farm Tuesday evening at suppertime and local officers are now on the lookout for him. The escape from work at the county farm is the same in the eyes of the law as a jail delivery, and if caught he will possibly be subjected to a five-year term in the penitentiary. Hemiller was experiencing some of the hard labor which prisoners are supposed to perform. With, three other prisoners he was helping with harvesting and thrashing. He had worked hard all day, but took French leave while the others were getting ready for supper. His absence was not at first noticed, as prisoners are treated as "trusties" at the farm. Later his absence was reported to the sheriff, but nothing had been seen or heard of him up to yesterday. Hemiller had served out a 15- day sentence on one bad check charge, and had served two days of 30-day sentence on another charge. The escape was a surprise to officers, who thought him foolish to run the risk of a possible five- year penitentiary sentence. The prisoners are brought to town every night and kept in jail till time for work next morning. Car Badly Wrecked, But Driver Unhurt Corwith, July 19— In her car Roberta Masterson was returning to work at the Corwith postoffice Friday noon, and had an accident that could have been serious. She reached under the seat for her purse, which had fallen, and In doing so pulled on the steering wheel, which drove her car into the ditch. When she looked up and saw where the car was head- Ing she pulled the steering wheel in the other direction to drive it out and in doing so turned the car over twice. The car was almost completely wrecked, but Miss Masterson miraculously escaped with minor cuts- and severe bruises. Cornstalk 11 Feet Wins a Burt Prize Burt,,. July 19— A "tall corn" contest conducted by the Smith Bros. store Saturday aroused considerable interest. Twenty-one farmers contributed stalks from their fields. Harold Anderson won first prize for a, stalk which measured 11 feet and bore five ears. -Russell Shipler and Louis Scott tied for second with stalks measuring nine feet, 11 inches. • ' — "—— * — '• Whittemore Woman Suffers Arm Break Mrs. Martin Duffy, Whltemora, suffered a broken left wrist Monday while she was visiting here at :he home of her son, County Treasurer M.

WINSON20TH BALLOT AFTER LONGJJATTLE Combined Heald and DeLand Forces are Beaten. G. W. Stillman, Algona, and Fred Hudson, Pocahontas, won the republican nominations for district court judge in a two-day judicial convention a t Crescent Beach at the Okobojis Tuesday. The nominations are expected to be equivalent to election, for it is anticipated that no democratic nomina- ttions will be made. The nominations came Tuesday morning, after the convention had been deadlocked since the first ballot Monday morning. All ballots except the final one were the same. East Side vs. West Side. J. D. Lowe, Algona, was chairman of the convention, and Dwight McCarthy, Emmetsburg, was secretary T. C. Hutchison served as one of two tellers.

Titonka Farmer is Gashed in Accident Titonka, July 19—In a tractor- binder accident Monday afternoon George Boyken, northwest of town, suffered severe injuries. He was at work alone and stopped to take a corn stalk out of the oats sickle. As he was in front of the machine It was thrown into gear, and Boyken was caught and dragged several rods before he could stop the tractor. Though he suffered a deep leg gash and another on the arm and was losing blood rapidly he walked to his home a quarter of a mile away and called Mrs. Boyken, who took him to a doctor. Divorced Couple Remarried Here Four licenses to wed have been Issued: Oliver Bartlett, Marguerte Tilley, both of Minneapolis; Gerald Larson, Virginia DeNio, both of Fort Dodge; I<ouis Vervier, Des. Moines, Janet Zerfass, Algona; Barber Alvin Briggs, Algona, Fern Briggs, Fairmont. This was. a remarriage for Mr. and Mrs. Briggs. * *""*"* was on two Judges on H ic 1 hence Koss "th, which had 15 delegates, had 30 votes, of which 15 could be cost for one candidate. The coalition had a total of 4 votes. It required 44% votes to nominate, hence the coalli- /!??' J ? vlew ot the s P Ht In. Palo Alto, had control as long as they- themselves hung together. How Totes Were Cast ' Each coalition county cast a unanimous choice of the delegation for its favorite son, then divided equally the remainder of its vote for the other three coalition candidates. Kossuth thus gave 15 votes for Stillman and five votes each for Hudson, Morse, and Jaqua. On this basis Judges Deland and Heala had total votes of 38 2-3 each; Stillman was third, with 28- Hudson had 24 2-3 votes; and Morse and Jaqua tied with 24 each. This was the total on each ballot except the final. West Side Gives Up. On the final ballot Buena Vista and Clay swung to Stillman and Hudson, with other counties fall- Ing into line, and the nominating ballot totals were: Stillman and Hudson, 62 votes each; Morse 36 2-8; Jaana 19; DeLand 4 2-3; Heald 3 -83. 'Balloting was in alphabetical order. The nomination of Stillman and Hudson was therefore assured on the final ballot before Kossuth and Pocahontas voted, and the full votes of those two cauntJos were therefore cast for the' winners. ' Following the ballot former Judge N. J. Lee, Estherville, heading the Emmet delegation, moved that the nominations be made unanimous, and the motion was carried without a dissenting vote.
