Said Knox and Kennedy Will Not

REPUBLICAN SCRAMBLE TONIGHT
Candidates Galore for the Various
Offices--Fun at Turner
The scramble for municipal and
town' nominations that has been go;
ing on in the republican ranks for
months will have its climax at Turner
hall tonight. The fun is announced
to commence at 7:S0 sharp.
No material change is apparent in
the race for the mayoralty candi
dacy, McConochie, if anything, hav
ing strengthened his lines since the
primaries, while Knox and Ken
nedy have lost heart, so their friends
say, and are not expected to be
heard from after the opening ballot.
They will ask their friends to stand
by them that far for the sake of ap
pearances. For the various other offices, from
city attorney down to constables,
there are candidates in abundance.
In fact few delegates have escaped the
honor of being selected to present the
name of an ''estimable and tried and
true republican" to the convention
for some office.
Some of the Asptrmcts for Office.
Here are some of the aspirants who
will know their fate after the contest
for mayor is disposed of: J. K. Scott
and W. L. Ludolph, who want to be
city attorney; W. D. Gall, V. W.
Clarke, O. EL Cramer, G. A. Johnson
and A. . Nelson, candidates for po
lice magistrate; W. J. Zsis, Willard
Baker and J. W. Tubbs, for collector;
J. L. Freeman and G. P. Nissen,
for assessor; Peter Heverling and L
V. Eckhsrt. for constables, and J. E
Peetz, for city treasurer. H. C
Schaffer will probably be renominated
for city clerk without. opposition. The
foregoing are only those who have an
nounced themselves as candidates.
So it should be remembered there are
others to be sprung yet.
TOO MANY CANDIDATES
FOR WOODMEN BOARD.
There is in progress at the Wood
man head office today a confer
ence that may result in the dropping
of one of the candidates indorsed by
the Illinois head camp for member of
the board of directors. So one of the
candidates informed an Akuus re
porter. A situation has arisen tnat will
complicate matters at the St. Paul
head camp unless a settlement is
effected beforehand. The by-laws of
the society provide that there shall
be only nve directors, yet six states
will go to St. Paul asking the elec
tion of seven candidates. These are
George Reilley and T. F. Hopkins, of
Illinois, who were indorsed to suc
ceed Gen. J. N. Beece and Marvin
Qaackenbnsh; Ben Smith, of Minne
sota; C. G. Sannders, of Iowa, now
member of the board of auditors; .
. Murphy, of Kansas; A. 11. Talbot,
of Nebraska, and S. A. Ramsey, of
The candidates for directors have
been summoned to the city by Head
Consul Northcolt for consultation.
It is understood that Mr. Ramsey can
be induced to withdraw, but a fight is
anticipated if an attempt is made to
sidetrack any one of the other six. Two
propositions are before the confer
ence, in which the board of directors
is included the., dropping of one
of the Illinois candidates and the
recommendation by the directors to
the head camp of the adoption of a
resolntion increasing the board of di
rectors to six members.
T. F. Hopkins, of Rock ford, and
George W. Reilley, of Dnville, who
were indorsed by the state camp as
successors to D. rectors J. N- Reece
and Marvin Qaackenbush, of the Mod
ern Woodmen society, are in the city
conferring with the officials of the or
der who are here in attendance at
the monthly meeting of the directors.
