St. Dankel of Grand Island, Ritirr la for tho Hend Office la Chosen for Second Office Ex citement Rnna High. On the fifth ballot and after the hottest fight ever known in the annals of the as sociation. In which ward politics and bal lot box-stuffing were resorted to, Charles W. Peters, deputy sheriff of Cook county. Illinois, was re-elected president of the National Sheriffs' association yesterday afternoon. The election of the Chicago man was made possible by the withdrawal of Nebraska's candidate.. James M. Dunkel of Grand Island, who up until that time had been leading the race. The final vote was" for Peters and 47 for Louis Bck- hardt of Davenport, the candidate of the Iowa delegation. . . The ballot-stuffing came on the fourth ballot, eight votes all In the same hand writing being found rolled up together in the box. There was Intense indignation and disgust manifest and for awhile It looked as If there wss going to be serious trouble. Sheriff Ben Ness of Des Moines offered to withdraw the name of Eckhardt from before the convention If the Judges should disclose the name on the ballots and It should happen to be that of the Sows can didate.

Froom. chief of police of Council Bluffs, by the Iowa delegation as a deputy sheriff.

Peters, present Incumbent of the office, third with twenty-six votes. It requires sixty votes to elect. It ls a fight between Nebraska and Iowa primarily, with the rest of tbe states united practically as a unit for the Chicago man. A desperate effort was made by the Iowa delegation before the balloting started to put Peters eut of the race by Introducing a mo Q on to the effect that no president oenld succeed himself. "Bill" Loftts of Iowa put the motion and was greeted with howls of applause from his backers and a few of the Nebraska delegation. Cries of unfairness, however, were many, aad hot debate followed. Sheriff K. F. Bralley of Omaha turned the tide by moving that tbe motion be tabled, declaring that it was unconstitu tional and unjust, and that hs wanted to vote for the man he wanted whenever he wanted to. Sheriff Peters wss nominated In s, rous ing speech by Sheriff Charles Werner of Springfield, 111., who declared that his candidate's twenty-eight years of service as the actual sheriff of Cook county should give him the position hands downy Sheriff Dunkel was nominated by Sheriff Hoagland of Lincoln, who characterized the Nebraska man as short of stature, but broad of shoulders and mind.

WINTER WHEAT CROP IS LARGE Tntnl Prodnetlen, While Smaller Than Last Tear, le Larger Than Ten-Year Average Tleld Per Aero Lighter. WAflHTNOTON. Aug. A tremendous decline In the conditions of crops, general throughout the country and traceable to drouth and Intense beat occurred during the last month, as Indicated by official figures and estimates made today tn tho monthly crop report of the department of agriculture. The report today Is the worst as to general crop conditions that the de partment has Issued for any single month, since 1901. The area most seriously affected extends from New Tork and Pennsylvania west ward to the Rocky mountains, embracing! all of the great corn, wheat and hay pro ducing states in the country. In the south ern ststes, with the 'exception of Vir ginia and North Carolina, ample rains served to maintain generally favorable con ditions throughout the last month. These conditions thus far continue to be favor able. CondTtions in the raciflc northwest states are regarded as excellent, although during July that territory suffered from a brief, but excessively hot. period. The figures contained In today's report Indicate a material slump In the prospects of all crops. Corn, which at this season ls the most Important, declined during the month from a condition of about S per cent below the average, as Indicated by the July report, to nearly U per cent below the average. In some states it fell off In condition nearly 30 per cent. This does not Indicate, however, that the crop will not be a great one, because the acreage of corn this year la exceptionally large. The condition of the crop at this time Indicates a yield per acre smaller than in any year since 1901. although the Indicated total production has been exceeded In only five years In the history of the coun try. It Is pointed out that the deteriora tion In the corn crop was checked some what by the rains during the latter part of July. Experts Incline to the opinion that the crop may be further Improved by the generous rains of the past week. The' weather during July caused a fall In the condition of corn which Indicates a loss of 328.000,000 bushels from tbe esti mated total production of tbe previous month. Spring wheat fell from a condition of a month' ago of U per cent below the aver age to approximately 27 per cent below the average. Indicating a loss of about 35.W,ono bushels. The Indications of the total yield of wheat per acre are tho low est since 1WH. The oats crop ls very short, according to the figures of today's report. It has been smaller three times and larger seven times during the past ten years. The crop of hay probably will be the smallest In fif teen years. The total yield of potatoes Indicated has been less than this year's crop only twice In the past ten years. It ls regarded as likely, however, that the late planted crop on account of recent rains may Increase the total estimated pro duction. The condition this month Indi cates a loss of about 35.64,0O0 bushels from last month's estimated yield. Conditions in the tobacco growing ctates during July were such as to reduce the estimated total yield of last month by al most 24.000,000 pounds. While the crops In many Instances prob ably will be short tn the yield per acra and In the total production they will not be small, as shown by the following esti mates of the yields of the standard crops: Coin, iXUl.OOO bushels; winter wheat, 4U.1U.000 bushels ; spring wheat, 20.64.OSe bushels; ats, SIT. 800,000 bushels; barley, US, 352.004 bubhels; potatoes, 241,893,000 bushels; tobacco, VI, lid. 000 pounds, anad bay, ., 1L8.000. tons.
