The democrals ot Poltawattamle county
named the above ticket at the county con
vention held hero Yesterday. The conven
tion was a cut and dried affair and attracted
but little Interest and outside of the dele
gates , nearly all of whom were present ,
there was but a very slim attendance at
the convention. The entire proceedings
wcro ot Iho tamest kind and about the only
nominations that developed any kind of
a genuine contest were those for members ot
the Board of County Supervisors , no less
than ten candidates being presented to the
convention for the two nominations.
The delegate * were a little tardy In tak
ing their seats and It was nearly halt an
hour after the appointed time that the con
vention was called to order by Brooks Heed ,
chairman of the county central committee.
Paul C. Aylesworth , secretary of ihe central
committee , read the call. Jefferson R. Delt-
rlch moved lhat Ihe meeting of the Kane
township delegates , which had been set for
last evening lo name a lonnshlp ticket , be
postponed until Saturday evening. The rea
son given was that a number of the dele
gates wanted to atlend Ihe Woodman day
exercises at the exposition yesterday after
noon and evening. The motion carried with
out dissent. These prlllmlnarles out of the
way Chairman Reed slarted to make a little
speech , during which ho said ho was awful
glad to see such a good crowd of delegates
and such an Intelligent looking lot of men
and It made him feel that something was
going to be done. He expressed the hope
lhat the hissing which had been Indulged In
at a previous democratic convention would
not bo repeated and that all candidates
would be given fair treatment. He
then named Rlley Clark of Neola as lempo-
rary chairman , who was received wllh con
siderable applause. Mr. Clark also made a
llllle speech and among other things said
j ho thought he could see the "radiant bow
1 of promise" for the democratic party this
' year. He hoped to see Colonel William
Jennings Bryan the standard bearer ot Ihe
party In 1DOO , but what elSe he said was
drowned In the cheers that greeted the
mention of Bryan's name.
Completing the Machinery.
John Mulquecn was then selected as sec
retary nnd Charles AValtcrs as leading clerk
and on motion of A. T. Whlltlesey the tem
porary organization was made permanent.
Later In the proceeding Sergeant Thonias
Comte of Ihe police force was made assist
ant secretary to Mulqueen to keep tab of the

amendment to the effect that the committee
consist of ono from each township and pre
cinct nnd A. T. Whlttlesoy lacked on an
other amendment that the Second precinct
ot the Second word , where a conlest exlsled ,
be excepled from Ihe commlltec. The mo.
tlon as amended carried and the commltlee
was duly named. This brought the proceed
ings close on to noon and on adjournment
was taken until 1 30 In the , nflernoon. Oh
reconvening in the ufteinoon Chairman
Clark announced lhat tha congressional can
didate , Captalq J. J. Lyons , would deliver
speeches at Ncola Friday of ne/t week and
at Walnut the day following. Ho also slated
that ho hoped the nominations of the con
vention would be properly cprtlrted to so thit
none of the candidate * would be "lost"
The committed on cicdnntlali prcBenlcd Its

precincts with the exception of Kane outside
were represcnled and lecommended that
both delegations from tto Second precinct
of the Second ward bo accorded seats In
Iho convenllon nnd lhat 'each be permllted
to cast a half vote. Ths report and recom
mendation , were adopted.
S. B. Wadsvvorth then took the floor.and
said ho wanted to know * It It was the dtslre
of the delegates to place the candidates be

his word lo the other candidates that he
was not after the nomination and that
therefore to be couslslen' ho mubt refuse to
allow his name to bo considered. Wadsworth
then moved that ihe nomination of Casady
be made by acclamation , bul It did not go ,
as there was another candidate In the field
and the name ot Attormy . H. Ware was
presenled. The first billet gave Casady . ' 12
voles and Ware but C and then on motion
the nomination of Casady was made unani
Tnn AVIthout OpiMiNltloii.
On motion of ex-Sheriff Hazen , the
nomination of John H. Plumer for county
auditor was made by acclamation.
City Attorney Wadsworth then placed
Harvey O Ouren In nomination for clerk
of the district court , informing the con-
vrntlon that the "
candidate "came of re
spectable family" and , with a view to catch
I the country vote , mentioned the fact that
11 he had been born and reared In Silver Creek
township , although later he had removed
to Council Bluffs. There being no one else
willing to be offered up as a lamb for the
sacrifice , Ouren's nomination was made by
| acclamation. Three candidales were pre-
i sented for the nomination for county
_ recorder , Alexander McCandless of Avoca.
U. K. Llal of Macedonia and W B. Fisher

B1 said he put Fisher In nomination lu behalf
of the young men In fhe city and In the
name ot the younc men who worked for
their living. Mr. Fisher Is a printer. Be
fore the roll wan called Fisher asked that
the nomination of McCandless be made by
acclamation , but Llal being In the field
the chair ruled It could not be done. Then
Llal took the floor and withdrew his name
and tbo nomination ot McCandless followed.
When the nominations for coroner were
called Kmll Schurz presented the name ot
"Doctor" Dan Graham , whom he aald had
the physical ability to cope with any corpse
that be might be called upon to sit upon.
This llttlo uttemnt at pleasantry fell flat ,
however , and Graham's oame was not serl-
ously considered. Ir F 11. Bellinger and
Dr. J C Waterman wore then presented
and on the first ballot Waterman was nomi
nated by ISO votes to Bellinger's 77.
One Mttlc Content.
The selection of two candidates far mem
bers of the Board of County Supervisors

while Colonel Whlttlcsey was trying to secure - j
cure the attention of the delegates with n

the Chicago and state convention platforms.
The motion carried , and then Police Ser
geant Comte stood un on bin chair and

I'tinlon for County OfllceH I'nllx nt the
Contrary to expectations the populists
named a county ticket yesterday of their
own and did not fuse with the democrats as
they had done on the congressional and Ju
dicial candidates. The placing of a ticket In
the field yesterday was mainly due to the
presence of A. W. Rlckcr of Iowa City , sec
retary of the populist state central commit
tee , who at the opening of the convention
made a strong speech against fusion and
urging the members of the party In Potta- | I
wattamle county t maintain the party or- j
ganlzatlon and not permit themselves to be
swallowed up body and soul by the dcrnoe- '
racy. His speech had the desired effect and
the following ticket was named : For clerk
of the district court , Bert France of Council
Bluffs ; for county attorney , W. r. Travis
of Council Bluffs ; for county auditor , C. C.
Green of Garner township , for county re
corder , David Evans of Council Bluffs ; for
members of board of supervisors , H. J.
Clark of Garner and Robert Green of Cres
cent.The convention was called to order by L.
Klnehan , chairman of the county central
committee , who was made permanent
chairman while H. J. Clark of Garner
acted as secretary. Resolutions endorsing
the several populist ) national platforms and
calling for direct legislation and direct
nomination of officers as calculated to cure
all political Ills were adopted.
The naming of a township ticket was
postponed to a later date to be fixed by
the chairman of the city central committee.

DCS MOINES , Sept. 22. ( Spwtal Tele
gram. ) Captain Olmsted , In charge of
Camp McKlnley , has Died charges against
two members of Company K of the Fiftieth
Iowa regiment and they will bo court-mar
tialed as soon as a sufficient number of the
officers of the Fiftieth return to the city to
form a court. It takes at least seven offi
cers and anywhere from seven to fifteen
to constitute a court. The men are George
Duck and Frank E. Baron. They are
charged with conduct "to the prejudice of
the good order and military discipline" of
the regiment. The conduct consists of le-
fusal to serve on the detail ordered to the
hospital to care for their sick coniradce
In the regiment. They refused to do this
work when ordered to do It on Wednesday
morning and on Thursday morning the
charges \vero filed. To all practical pur
poses the men are under arrest. There arc
not sufficient men In the camp to form a
guard , so that a guard house Is impossible ,
but they are In charge of the Kitchen po
Six more men of the Fiftieth detail of
sixty left at Camp McKlnley by Colonel
Lambert to guard the camp property and
servo In the hospital disappeared yesterday.
The colonel claimed to have had sixty men
detailed for this duty , only forty-three re
ported on Wednesday morning. No record
of the detail was left with the lieutenant
In charge , so that he could not know who
the missing seventeen men were. Captain
Olmsted has directed that company com
manders bo notified that orders must bo
Issued to these men to appear hero and
report on September 30 on pain of dishon
orable discharge from the army as deserters
and It has been ordered also that the muster
out roll shall show the days they were ab
sent from the camp and they will not receive
pay for such time. Captain Olmsted aays
ho proposes that while the volunteers are
I In his charge as representative of the fed
eral government , military regulations and
discipline shall bo enforced to the letter.
Governor Shaw and Adjutant Dyers are out
I of the city.
I That Dr. Llttlg Is held In 111 favor by the
' medics of the State university at Iowa City
Is evidenced by a communication to Governor
Shaw , just received , asking his removal.
There has been friction for some time be
tween the students and the present In
cumbent and as a result of his retention
a large number of sophomores went else
where to school this year. It was because
of this number refusing to return to Iowa
City that calls forth the following petition :
"Governor L. M. Shaw : Owing to the
opposition to Dr. Llttlg only twenty-five out
of sixty-one late sophomore medics have
joturned and they Insist on the removal
of Dr. Llttlg , according to their petition
to the regents , before registering or paying
tuition. Twenty of these -will go elsewhere
unless Llltlg la removed. Evidence before
a trial tiommllleo was overwhelming , but
Llttlg was retained on trial one year. The
class Insists on his removal and asks to
know Immediately what will bo done. "

DES MOINES , Sept. 22. ( Special. )
Chairman Hancock of the republican state
committee has decided , as Indicated some
days ago , to share the responsibility of the
campaign with other members of the com
mittee more than has ever been done. Each
member of the committee will he held re
sponsible for his district and will bo con
sulted more as to what shall bo done In
the district. Applications for speakers In
the district will bo made by the county
chairman to the district commltteemnn In
stead of to the state chairman , as hereto
fore , and the members of the committee
will apply to the state headquarters for
what ho wants for his district. So It will
bo with other things. The Idea Is , as one
member of the committee remarked , that
the members of the committee shall be "In
It" and shall control their districts. This
will be an Interesting experiment. Mr.
Hancock , being a man of unusual activity
himself and having had experience In man
aging a district campaign , has confidence
In the success of hla plan. It will cer
tainly do away with any suspicion of the
operations of the state headquarters grow
ing out of Ignorance of Us plans. This Is
R good year to try It and the committee
Is enthusiastic about it.
After OfTemllnir Dairymen.
DES MOINES. Sept. 22. ( Special. ) State
i Dairy Commissioner L. S. Gates has taken
advantage of a recent construction of the
Iowa dairy laws by the attorney general
and fined two farmers living near Tonta-
nelle for watering skimmed milk. Not long
ago the dairy commissioner got an opinion
from the attorney general which stated that
| under the laws of Iowa the dairy depart
ment might punish any milk dealer found
guilty under the milk teat process of
adulterating the milk he sold.
Heretofore It has been necessary for the
department to find the party In the act
of committing the crime. Under the new-
construction of the law Mr. Gates prepared
himself with a new milk tester , which had
been passed upon by the proper authorities ,
and then ho staned after the bogus milk
dealers. The first place he struck was Fon-
tanello In Adatr county and last week be
j brought two farmers of that locality before
I a justice , after making a thorough teat
j of the milk they were selling to the Tonta-
nelle creamery , tried , convicted and fined
them $25 and costs The men were J. Camp
bell and II. Warnke.

WASHINGTON , Sept ! . 23 The following
Is the president's letter In reply to a letter
from Alexander H. Hovellco \ president of
the Lafayette Memorial commission.
WASHINGTON , Sept. 17 My Dear Sir-
Your letter written In behalf of the Lafayette -
fayetto Memorial commission has greatly
Interested me and I ha\e read with much
satisfaction the plans already outlined for
the proposed monument to the memory ot
a great soldier and patriot.
The undertaking 1s ono which I am sure
It will bo considered a privilege to partici
pate , nnd the Idea that the students In the
schools , colleges and universities shall take
a prominent part in this tribute will not
only bo of vast educational value as to ono
of the most Important epochs In history ,
but will keep prominently before them the
Inspiration of a high idea of devotion to
great prlnplples and of the public recogni
tion paid to lofty purposes. ,
General Lafajetto was but n joung man
when ho espoused the cause of liberty and
Independence , overcoming well nigh Insur
mountable obstacles to do so. It Is alto
gether fitting , therefore , that the youth of
America should have a part In this testimonial
menial to his goodness nnd greatness.
I am glad to note that your committee
has fixed a date when our people , in o\ery
part of the country , may testify their In
terest In this proposed monument , and
their determination that the movement al
ready begun shall achieve the greatest suc
cess. Very sincerely yours ,
The following Is Mr. Rcvello's letter :

of the youth of our land of a monument

It Is believed by the commission that an
opportune and lilting occasion now presents
Itself , wherein the American people may
again show their gratitude nnd veneration
for that compatriot of Washington , whono
remains now Ho humbly Interred In the
Plcpus cemetery of Paris , marked only by
an unpretentious granite slab.
It Is especially desirable that the monument
ment should be a spontaneous offering from
the students and school children of America.
We believe that by thus directing their
thoughts to this patriotic and Inspiring
period of our history , to which General La
fayette so greatly contributed , It will
broaden their \lews to International points
nnd arouse their Interest In the great events
of the dawning century. U Is proposed tl-at
the school oftlclals of the United States bo
requested to recognize October 19 as Lafay
ette day In the schools nnd colleges public
und parochial of the land , when n portion
of the day may bo devoted to exercises ap
propriate to the occasion , the story of our
struggle for liberty told anew to our chil
dren and they may on that day contribute
their help and mlto In memory of the knight
of liberty and Hist defender of America
It is our wish that you will upon consid
eration of this subject give It such approval
as you may deem proper Yours rcspect-
