fie to the i\iHiMUoii : In
The republican county convention to nom
inate candidates for the following county
offices : Clerk of the district court , recorder
of deeds , attorney , auditor , coroner and two
members of the Board of Supervisors , will
bo celled to order this morning at 11
o'clock by Frank Everest , chairman of the
county central committee. R. W. Roland
of Neola will net as temporary chairman ,
but as there is a disposition to rush mat
ters through so that the delegates and
others Interested In the nominations can
attend the Iowa day exercises at the expo
sition , the usual spcechmaklng will be dis
pensed with. It had been suggested that the
convention bo adjourned until the follow
ing morning on account of Iowa day , but
this Chairman Everest says will not be
done , as It would work a hardship on the
country delegates. Every effort , however ,
will be tnnda to transact the business as
rapidly as possible and It Is thought that If
the usual adjournment for dinner Is not
taken the work of the convention can be
completed In a couple of hours or there
abouts. It Is possible that the convention
may last well through the afternoon , as
the present Indications arc that there will
he lively contests for the nominations for
auditor , recorder and attorney. There are
several candidates for each of these of
fices and none of them will give up the
fight without a struggle.
For auditor there nro four candidates In
the field : R. V. Innes , the present deputy
under Auditor Matthews ; N. C. Phillips ,
city clerk ; W. M. Shepard , who this year
completes his third term as recorder , and
W. L. Bedlson , formerly auditor of the
Omaha & St. Louis road. The nomina
tion Is said to lay between Phillips and
Innes , with the latter probably somewhat
in the lead. The delegates from the city
are about evenly divided as between Innes
and Phillips , but the opinion yesterday was
that Inncs would have the vote of a major
ity of the country delegates. Phillips has a
strong support , and his friends are feeling
sanguine of his carrying off the nomina
For the nomination for county recorder
there nro six active candidates In the field
William Larson , the present deputy under
Recorder Shepard , E. H. Ohlendorf and W.
II. Lynchard , all of the city ; Elmer E.
Smith of Macedonia , A. C. Ranck of Mace
donia and John Gelger of Mlnden. There
Is a feeling that the nomination this year
should go outsldo of the city and of the
out-of-town candidates the man from Mace
donia Is said to have 'the ' jstrongest sup
port and his friends claim he will bo nomInated -
Inated on the first ballot. E. H. Ohlendorf
, will go Into the convention , however , with
| a strong delegation and Is expected to gtvo
Smith a pretty race for the nomination.
Likewise , for the nomination of county
attorney there are six aspirants nnd each
will have friends In the convention. They
nro J. B. Sweet , George II. Scott , C. F.
Klmball and John Llndt of this city , A. L.
Preston of Avoca and W. H. Kllpack ot
Neola. The knowing ones say the nomina
tion will fall to the Neola man and there
Is llttlo doubt but that ho will come
before the convention with a strong vote
from the country townships. John Llndt
has been a most nctlvo candidate and has
the support of the old soldier element.
Sweet only recently announced himself a
candidate , but slnco the primaries has not
been Idle. Ho will have the delegation
from llho Second ward at his back to start
with , while George H. Scott will have the
delegates from the First ward , who will
use every means In their power to secure the
nomination for him. C. F. Klmball Is also
regarded , as a strong candidate and is the
choice of the younger republicans of the

F. Baker of this city and Jacob Hanson ,

Hardln may come bcforo the convention In
quest ot the nomination.
For the two nomination for Justices of the
peace the two present republican Incum
bents , Ovldo Vlen and J. W. Ferrler , are
candidates for renomlnatlon. Ovlde Vien
has already served three terms , while Fer-
rler has served but one year. William Me-
Creary Is out for the nomination and It Is
| said that E. B. Gardiner , ex-sergeant of po
lice. Is also a candidate. There are severa
candidates In the field for constable , two of
whom will bo elected this fall.

GRINNELL , la. , Sept. 20. ( Special. )
Registration for the fall term nt Iowa col
lege Is now practically complete. The fig
ures now at hand Indicate a total Increase
In college and academy of about fifty over
last year. The number will be about an
even 400 , as against 350 last fall at this
time. In the college department there are
enrolled 237 , a slight Increase over last year.
The freshman class numbers about n even
100 , against S3 for last fall. It has been
nn Interesting fact to the college authori
ties that despite the added entrance require
ment , which went Into effect this fall , stu
dents are not deterred from attending. It
had been expected that the new require
ment would at least cause a decrease In the
membership of the freshman class as com
pared to last year. It has , however , been
the experience of the faculty that as the
course Is stiffened the public schools of the
more progressive of the Iowa towns are
advancing In quality of work. In this con

AUDUDON , la. , Sept. 20. ( Speclar. ) The
preliminary hearing In the case of the State
against Arthur Palmer and Hattle Palmer
has terminated here by Justice of the Peace
Theo. F. Myers , who was the presiding
magistrate , holding the defendant , Arthur
Pnlraer , to await the action of the grand
jury. Hattlo Palmer was released. The de
fendants were charged with being parties to
the murder of the Bcnnlngham-Hcff child.
In the preliminary examination the state
was represented by County Attorney F. E.
Bralnard , assisted by William Wonn ; the
defendants by Hon. II. F. Andrews , assisted
by John M. Masslcr.
It Is doubtful If there has over been a
more difficult murder case In the state than
this Bennlngham-Heff affair , or a moro
fiendish crime. The setflcd determination
of ninety-nine of every hundred of the citi
zens of Audubon county Is to bring the
guilty parties to justice and the feeling prevails -
vails that no expense should bo spared In
getting the exact truth. There Is no blt'ter
fceMng In relation to the expense upon the
county , but the officials have had the united
support of practically all the people of the
county. Sheriff J. H. Jones and County At
torney Bratnard seem to bo sparing no
effort to bring the guilty parties to justice
and Indications are that In the end all the
mystery surrounding the matter will be

the most amusing sights ever witnessed
hero was seen yesterday , when some of the
Indians who had como to Sioux City for a
drunk were "returning " to the reservation.
In ono wagon were a young buck and his
squaw , together with an old squaw who
reposed on the bottom of the wagon box.
The trio was about ) as full ot corn palace
whisky as It was possible to get and they
were having a hard time to stay In the
wagon. Mr. and Mrs. Buck were on a
gprlug seat and they swayed to and fro llko
willows In n hurricane. They had tied
themselves together with a shawl and by
that means managed to stay In the wagon.
The squaw was driving and when she was
not busy whipping the horses she had her
arms around the buck's neck.

QUEBEC , Sept. 20. The international
commissioners met In Joint session for an
hour this afternoon and adjourned to meet
again at 10:30 : a. m. Thursday. The adjourn
ment over tomorrow Is taken because of the
ceremonies attending the unveiling of the
Champlaln monument In which the members
of the high commission are to participate.
The American commissioners met as
usual at 9 o'clock this mornlnc nnd again
at 4 p. m. They listened to the arguments
of Messrs. Babcock of New York and Fallen -
lon of Ohio , who represent the interests of
United States inland fisheries. As usual the
proceedings wcro behind closed doors. But
so far as the fresh water fisheries are con
cerned It Is understood that the Americans
and Canadians will agree with little trouble.
Both sides deslro the better protection of
the fresh water fish nnd no doubt this part
of the proposed treaty will readily bo dis
posed of. Tomorrow the Interests of the
United States farmers will bo heard. A
number of the border states may be repre
sented , but as yet the American commis
sioners have heard only from the National
Grauco. Aaron Jones of South Bend , worthy
master of the Grange , and Secretary John
Trlmball of Washington , D. C. , have noti
fied the commissioners that they wish to .be
heard. It Is presumed they will protest In
a general way against the reduction or re
moval of tariff on Canadian agricultural
products , especially barley , hay , oats , etc.
It Is understood the Canadians are going
to take a decided position on the lumber
Hon. A. S. Hardy , premier of Ontario ,
and G. W. Ross , minister of education , ar
rived hero today to represent the Ontario
government In the lumber question. They
doslro unreservedly that no concessions will
bo made on the part of the Canadian gov
ernment In the way of permitting lots to
go free unless the United States makes some
concession In the way of reducing or remov
ing the present duty of | 2 per thousand on
Canadian sawed lumber. Last year the On
tario legislature passed a law that no logs
cut on crown lands by American lumber
men should bo taken Into the United States
to be sawed Into lumber In American mills.
This law was no doubt a result of the $2
duty put upon all Canadian lumber In the
Dlngley law , but has been a dlastrous law
for euch ot the American lumbermen who
own large tracts of timber land In Ontario.
These lumbermen contend that the Cana
dian government knew when it sold the
timber to the Americans that It was to be
sawed In American mills , and knowing this ,
the government had no right to pass a law
of this character. But the Canadians waive
that colnt and soy It must be free logs
nnd free lumber or no change at all.
Clark Wallace , former minister of cus
toms now representing the Canadian Manu
facturing association , arrived hero today for
the purpose of conferring with the Canadian
commissioners. Ho counselled the Canadian
commissioners to stand by the present
productive duty on Iron manufactured goods
sent Into Canada from the United States.
Textiles and manufactured Iron lmpleir nts
have been the articles upon which ho
urges that no reduction bo made. Ho says
the Canadian manufacturers are all the
tlmo growing and American free Importa
tions would paralyze them.
C. M. Hays , general manager of the
Grand Trunk Railroad company , has been
In consultation with both the American
and Canadian commissioners and states that
there probably will be little difficulty In
settling the bonding question , the alien la
bor questions and other matters In which
the railroads are concerned.
Ho says the views of the commissioners
on both sides are along the same general
lines. Although nothing Is revealed to In
dicate what progress Is being made by the
commission or what results are probable ,
Senator Fairbanks gives the assurance that
the achievements so far arc gratifying and
Indicative of satisfactory results In the end.
