CLAGUE NOW LOOKS SURE WINNER
IN THE EIGHT EOR SPEAKERSHIP
Fourth District Delegation
Holds Caucus at Merchants
Hotel and by Unanimous
Vote Declares for the Mem-
ber From Redwood County—
Claque's Managers Now
Claim Their Candidate Has
24 Votes More Than the 55
Necessary to Control Repub
The Fourth district Republican
house members last night gave Frank
Claque, of Lamberton, a unanimous
indorsement for speaker of the house,
and W. D. Nolan, one of the other can
didates, practically concedes the elec
tion of his opponent.
The Fourth district delegation,
twelve in number, met at the Mer
chants hotel, and after a session last
ing nearly two hours announced that
on the final ballot Mr. Claque had been
the choice of the entire delegation, and
the members would support him for
the speakership. Mr. Claque was
brought before the meeting, extended
his thanks for the indorsement and his
managers announced that the affirma
tive action of the Fourth district had
determined the result of the speaker
Mr. Claque made a statement at
the close of the meeting, in which he
claimed seventy-nine members pledg
ed to his support. This figure Includes
twelve Republican members from Hen
nepin county, and while Hennepin is
expected to meet Monday night and
declare for Claque, he has twelve
votes, according to his statement, in
excess of the number required to con
trol the Republican caucus of the
house members, to be held early in
January, and to insure his election aa
'I guess The Globe's prediction
this morning has been made good by
the action of the Fourth district dele
gation," Claque said on hearing of the
action of the caucus last night. "Th c
Globe esized up the situation cor
rectly, and the delegatio haß taken
advantage of the opportunity pre
sented. Naturally I feel very grateful
for the fact that I was the choice of
the twelve men on a secret ballot."
Pains Hennepin Members
A number of Hennepin county mem
bers were about the Merchants hotel
during the evening awaiting the re
sult of the Fourth district caucus.
While for the .most part they were ad
herents of the Claque standard, they
could, not conceal their chagrin at be
ing outgeneraled by the down-river
delegation in taking the situation by
the horns and casting the decisive
votes that have apparently settled the
W. A. Nolfia, of Mower county, who
has been a candidate for the speaker
ship, was also at the hotel during the
evening. He regarded the action of the
Fourth district caucus as the end of the
fight. "Mr. Claque certainly has de
veloped a strong following," he said. "It
looks very much as though he will win
out." Privately, it is said, Mr. Nolan
admitted that the contest was as good
Julius A. Schmahl, candidate for
chief clerk of the house, who is a resi
dent of Redwood county, the home of
the man whose friends now claim is
assured of election as speaker, was a
guest at the Merchants watching de
velopments. While it is somewhat un
usual for both the speaker and chief
clerk to come from the same county,
he was confldent of his re-election as
chief clerk. He claims to have more
than enough votes pledged to him to
insure his re-election and said that the
Fourth district delegation was ready
to Indorse him last night but for an in
terruption in the proceedings. So far
his only competitor is John T. Jones,
Mr. Claque, after the close of the
conference last night, consented for
the first time to reveal his complete
sources of strength in members
throughout the state. He claimed a
total of seventy-nine members, dis
tributed in the nine congressional dis
tricts of the state. Fifty-five are need
ed to control the caucus.
Claque Tells His Strength
"I have 11 votes in the First district
not counting W. A. Nolan," he said. 1
have 7 in thhe Second; I have 8 dead
sure of the 12 in the Third; the Fourth
district's 12 have just unanimously de
clared for me; the Fifth district will
certainly give me 12 of its 16 votes; I
have 5 in the Sixth; I have my own
Seventh district delegation of 11 solid
ly behind me; I have 2 in the Eighth
and am certain of at least 10 in the
Ninth district. This makes a total of
79 votes, and without the Hennepin
delegation, if by any remote chance
they shouli not declare for me. I still
have enough to elect me."
Mr. Claque received the congratula
tions of a good many friends at the
close of the caucus. He said, speaking
of his apparent success:
"The action of the Fourth district
caucus has settled the speakership be
yond any and all question. I feel
grateful to my friends for what they
have done for me, for what has been
done has been a free will offering. The
light has been won without financial
assistance or the aid of outside influ
ences. My friends came to St. Paul
and labored in my behalf without re
ward or hope for reward.
"I have made no promises or pledges
except to guarantee fair treatment to
every delegation and every member.
They will be treated courteously and
honestly, and every interest in the state
will receive a proper regard.
"I naturally feel especially grateful to
the Seventh district steering committee
which has done such good work in my be
half. T. T. Ofsthun, P. A. Gandurud. Dr.
A. D. Larson and Marcus Lauritzsen,
members of the committee, did good work
and none of them would even let me pay
their hotel bills. I received almost as
valuable aid from every district in the
state, and such friends as A. L. Cole, of
Cass county, i can never forget.
'I want to thank my opponents for the
fair and just manner in which they have
treated me in this canvass, it has been
a clean fight, free from personalities. Net
a word or a sentence has been uttered
for which any apology i a needed on either
Wanted Unanimous Vote
The Fourth district caucus, which is
conceded to have cast the deciding vote
in the speakerslrtp contest, was held in
a parlor on the second floor of the Mer
chants hotel. Tho members went into
executive session at 8:30 o'clock and it

was after 10 when the caucus adjourned.
Thomas C. Fulton, of White Bear, pre
sided, and John T. Rosenthai acted as
secretary. The meeting was called to in
dorse the Claque candidacy, and the long
session was due to a desire on the part
of the Ftetrirj; committee to secure a
unanimous vote for their favorite. The
vote stood 9 for Claque to 3 scattering
on the informal ballot, and on the first
formal ballot the vote was 11 to 1.
While the ballot was secret, it devel
oped that John W. Nelson, of Taylors
Falls, was the member who did not vote
for Claque. He stated his reason that
he desired that N. F. Hugo, of Duluth, b«
given an opportunity to present his claims
for consideration to the delegation. Final
ly Mr. Nelson yielded to the wishes of the
majority. Mr. Claque was pent for and
expressed hia apreclation of the compli
ment contained in the vote. John L. Ole
son, of North Branch, and John Zelch. of
Cottage Grove, were absent from the
caucus, but their proxies were held by
Mr. Claque appeared before the dele
gation when it went into session and de
clared on his honor that he had 4« votes
pledged to him. Kfforts wore made to

The Hennepin county delegation will
meet Mondny night, and while the post
ponement from Friday was to give N. F.
Hugo an opportunity to present his
claims, in view of the developments of
the past few days and Claque's apparent
success in capturing the plum, an Indorse
ment of Clapne is confidently expected
by his friends. Ten of the Hennepin
county members Individually declared for
him yesterday and in the evening two
more of the Hennepin members came to
his standard. This leaves but four of the
Hennepin delegation uncommitted, and
the majority, v/ho have already deferred
to the minority, are said to be now de
termined to force action at the meeting

PUTTING IT STRONG
But Doesn't It Look Reasonable?
.This may read as though we were put
ting it a little strong, because it is gen
erally thought by the majority of people
that Dyspepsia in its chronic form Is in
curable, or practically so. But we have
long since shown that Dyspepsia is cur
able, nor is it such a difficult matter as
at first appears.
The trouble with Dyspeptics is that
they are continually dieting, starving
themselves, or going to opposite extreme,
or else deluging the already overburdened
stomach with "bitters," "after dinner
pills," etc., which invariably increase the
difficulty even if in some cases they do
give a slight, temporary relief. Such
treatment of the stomach simply makes
matters worse. What the stomach wants
is a rest. Now, how can the stomach be
come rested, recuperated and at the same
time the body nourished and sustained?
This is a great secret and this is also
the secret of the uniform success of
Stuarts Dyspepsia Tablets. This is a
comparatively new remedy, but its suc
cess and popularity leaves no doubt as to
The Tablets will digest the food any
way, regardless of condition of stomach.
The sufferer from Dyspepsia, according
to directions, is to eat an abundance of
good, wholesome food and use the tab
lets before and after each meal, and the
result will be that the food win be di
gested no matter how bad your Dyspep
sia may be, because, as before stated,
the tablets wili digest the food ewn if the
stomach is wholly inactive. To illustrate
our meaning plainly, if you take 1,800
grains of meat, eggs or ordinary food and
place it !n a temperature of 98 degrees,
and put with it one of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets, it will digest the meat or eggs
almost as perfectly as If the meat waa
enclosed within the stomach.
The stomach may be ever so weak, yet
these tablets will perform the work of
digestion and the body and brain will be
properly nourished, and at the same time
a radical, lasting cure of Dyspepsia will
be made because the much-abused stom
ach will be given, to some extent, a much
needed rest Your druggist will tell you
that of all the many remedies advertised
to cure Dyspepsia none of them have
given so complete and general satisfac
tion as Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, and
not least in importance in these hard
times is the fact that they are also the
cheapest and give the most cood for the

The missing counties, with the ex

Hennepin county four years ago was
practically evenly divided between the

the recent election it gave John A.
Jahnson more than 8,000 majority over

Dunn by approximately 3,000 votes.
Counting the counties yet to report aa

his majorities in Hennepin and Ram

county has reported, sending to the
secretary of state the first package.
But this package cannot be opened ex

the delay lies in the slowness in send
