and ric ini'- 'i''' the holders be seated.
One of t! . e : .: s was given by Perry
Kerney i f t Pottawattamie county dele
gation to Ai.oim y Charles M. Harl of this
city. The rttoit was accepted and Mr.
Harl, with the holders of the other three
proxies, permitted to take their seats. When
this had been done Chairman C. B. Clovis
of ths eredentlsls committee announced
that ha had been handed another proxy,
given by J. H. Bpaltl of Oakland, a mem
ber of the Pottawattamie county delega
tion. Chairman J. M. GaUln of the Pot
tawattamie county delegation objected to
the holder of this proxy being allowed a j
sest In the convention and called attention
to the fact that the Pol tawattasnle county
convention In selecting Its delegates had
specially provided that no proxies were to
be prrmitted. The convention '.held with
Mr. C.alvln and the holder of the proxy was
not permitted to take his seat.
In accordance with the recommendation
of the committee on permanent organisa
tion, Hon. John Y. Btono of Glenwood was
selected as permanent chslrman of the con
vention with W. C. Ratcllff of Montgomery
county as secretary and B. W. , Wood of
Cass county as reading clerk.
On assuming the gavel Mr. Stone paid a
tribute to the Judiciary as a body, to the
Judges of the Fifteenth district and to
Judge Macey In particular.
The work of the convention then com
rrfr.crd by a roll call of counties for nom

Balloting Is Monotonous.
Th3 balloting was an exceedingly monot
onovs proceeding, especially for the spec
tator. There was practically no change In
the vole from the first to the last ballot
with the exception of the few votes which
straed away from Cook, the Mills county
At the close of the thirty-second ballot a
motion to take a recess for five minutes
prevailed, but when the balloting was re
sumed the vote stood the same as before.
From the thirty-first to the thirty-ninth
ballot. Inclusive, there was not the change
even of a single vote. On the forty-second
bullot Fremont county varied the monotony
by dividing Its eight votes, which had been
going to lieeson, between the Montgomery
county candidate and Rockafellow, the
Cass county candidate, but on the next
ballot gave Its whole eight votes back to
Reeson. The Juggling of Its eight votes
by Fremont county was about the only
diversion. On the forty-fourth ballot the
supporters of Arthur thought victory was
coming their way when Audubon gave their
choice four of Its votes, but the gain was
only temporary. On the fifty-fourth ballot
Fremont county cast Its eight votes for
Hon. John Y. Stone, the permanent chair
man of the gathering, and on the next
ballot gave them to Beeson again. On the
fifty-ninth ballot the Freaiont county votes
wandered off to Rockafellow and then on
the next ballot back to Beeson again.
When the sixty-third ballot had been an
nouueed Aimer Stern of Harrison county
moved to adjourn to 9:30 Wednesday morn
Ing, the vote on roll call being 57 for and
51 against adjournment. The counties voted
as follows: For adjournment: Harrison
12; Mills, 10; Pottawattamie, 2$, nnd Shelby,
7. Against adjournment, Audubon, S; Cass,
11; Fremont, 8; Montgomery, 11; Page, 10,
and Shelby, 8.
I'p to a late hour last night the situation
was said to be unchanged. The five can
didates were all standing pat, despite all
the lobbying of the leaders. Friends of
Arthur, the Harrison county candidate,
were quite optimistic and declared that
their candidate, would be nominated before
11 o'clock this morning. One of the leaders
from Harrison county said: "We have
enough first and second choices to name
our man when the proper time comes. It
may take some time, but Arthur will be
the nominee. The other counties cannot,
the way things are lined up, form a com
bination to defeat us."

Democratic Members of School Board
Belnic Lined I'p.
The annual meeting of the Board of Edu
cation will be held this evening as pro
vided by law. At this meeting the secre
tary of the board Is elected for the ensu
ing year. It was stated yesterday that the
demociatlc members of the board Intended
voting for J. J. Hughes, chairman of the
democratic city central committee and
member of the state democratic central
committee from the Ninth district, for sec
retary as against Dillon I,. Ross, the pres
ent Incumbent of the position. As ther

on the board, they will be able, should they
Combine forces, to elect their mnn. Mr.
Ross has held the office for several years
and until Hughes' name was mentioned
was supposed to be sure of re-election.
Another matter to be attended to at the
annual meeting la that of fixing the
amount of money necessary to be obtained
by tax levy for the support of the schools
during the ensuing year. Last year $$5,000
was levied for the teachers' fund and 135,-
000 for the contingent fund with $2,000 for
free text books and $1,100 for transporta
tion of pupils. This year It Is believed

books, as the Btipply Is becoming worn out
from constant usage.

DES MOINES. Ia., July l.-Politlclans
and lawyers alike believe that It Is next
to Impossible to get the legal tangle regard
ing the republican nomination lor congress
man In the Seventh district unnvnru
time for any name to go onto the ballot.
Congressman J. A. T. Hull, chairman of
the military affairs committee or tne
house, who Is seeking renomination ana
election for B ninth term, and his oppon
ent. Judge S. F. Prouty. will thus have
to go on by petition, and there Is little
doubt but both will go on.
The tangle Is In relation to Dallas county.
One of the candidates for county auditor
there defeated the other for the nomina
tion by four votes. The defeated man filed
a petition for a recount. The law pro
vides that If there Is a recount on any
votes there must be a recount on all. Con
gressman Hull rested on his oars while
the recount was being made on auditor.
He and Judge Prouty . each had friends
present to tally up the vote on congress
man and they found that Prouty will gain
about seventy-five or eighty votes on a
recount on congressman. This would be
enough to give him the nomination .and
Congressman Hull then promptly asked for
an Injunction to stop any further count.
Judge Gamble granted the temporary In
junction and this will be heard on Septem
ber 2 at Adel by Judge Nichols. There
would be a bare possibility that this could
be appealed to the supreme court, which
meets September 22, and that the supreme
court could give a final decision by Octo
ber 19, the day on which the secretary of
state must certify the copy for the elec
tion ballots to the county auditors. But
there Is an equity action also started In
Dallas county by a private citizen. This
cannot be tried at the September term and
there is no possibility of Its going through
the courts In time. Unless this Is with
drawn the thing Is tied up hopelessly.
Furthermore, It endangers the whole
state ticket, for without the vote In Dallas
county the executive council cannot certify
the copy for the ballots for state officers
for any party. It Is beleved that a way
will be found to get the equity action

PACKAGE RATES REDUCED
Railroads Will llestore Former Tariff
on This Class of
CHICAGO, July 1. It was announced
here today that the railroads of the mid
dle west have decided to restore the oia
rates on package freight, putting Into
force again the former minimum charges
for shipments of this character. The
movement means a saving of thousands of
dollars annually to the shippers of this
The old minimum of 25 cents was In
force from Chicago to the Mississippi river
and St. Paul. West of there as far as
central Kansas the charge was 50 cents
and from that, section to the coast tho
minimum was 75 cents. The change made
a year ago, when these rates were abol
ished and the first-class rates were sub
stituted, brought Increases of from 50 to
300 per cent. The Increase, for Instance, to
Oklahoma points wus from 75 cents to $1.50
and to common Colorado points It was $2.50.
The roads found, however, that the dis
parity In rates caused by the various min
imum charges established by the state
commissions give sonic cities advantages
over neighboring distributing centers.
Milwaukee could ship to all Wisconsin
points on a minimum of 25 cents, whereas
it cost Chicago considerably more. Sim
ilarly Omaha had a better opening to many
markets of the middle west than other
towns within comparatively the same dis
tance. In addition, according to some cf the
transportation experts, tho new rates drove
a considerable amount of business to the
express companies, who wero not affocted
by the decision to raise the charges. The
old rates are to be restored within a few
Iowa News otes.
