Maurice McMahon, present democratic county attorney, announced himself for selection, Monday. On Tuesday, H. W, Miller, republican, announced his candidacy for the county attorney's office. Mr. Miller and Mr McMahon waged a close contest two years ago this fall for the same office, and another interesting race can be anticipated this year. Both are Algona lawyers. Explains Gross Tax . Clarence Knutson, republican candidate for governor, and Boss Mowry, candidate for attorney general on the same party ticket, were the speakers at a mass meeting here Monday evening. The court room was filled. Mr. Knutson's plan for a gross sales tax was clearly explained, and offers an entirely new Idea in taxation. Mr. Knutson would eliminate all other state taxes and substitute for them the gross income tax of one half of one per cent of the gross income of any corporation, firm, business or individual. He stated that he believed the plan would successfully meet the demands ot today for a new form of taxation, and one that would be fair to everyone. Under this plan, every tax exempt person or organization of today would be faced with a proportionate share of the tax burden, and the load, now carried by th« real «ttate property tax would lie lifted. .»•"»- Hurt Man's Case Continued in Court Harold Nelson of Hurt, aged 20, charged with carrying concealed weapons, had his case continued 30 days in the court ot H.
