^he^l'Republicans of Mille Lacs
coi|nty met in convention at Foreston
lasf Friday and nominated candidates
for county officers. There was more
interest displayed at this convention
thsib at any which has been held this
3
year and each delegation was attended
by a large number of enthusiasts for
thi| or that candidate.
3^ S. Briggs, chairman of the county
committee, called the convention to
order and asked for nominations for
terfpbrary chairman. E. W. Cundy
and !N. Mr Cook were placed in nomin
atifn but Mr. Cook withdrew and Mr.
Cu|dy was chosen. A moment later
"Drl Cook was named as temporary
secretary.
A committee on credentials, consist
ing of one from each precinct was
elejbted, and Was composed of the fol
lowing gentlemen: Joseph Craig, C.
WJ VanWormer, Fred McFarland,
King ^Burrell, Frank Tellander, A. L.
Snow, John Haggbetg, William Sulli
van, August Kurke. The committee
reported no contests and the conven
tion immediately got down to business,
having first made the temporary or
ganization permanent
The convention declared that every
candidate must be a Republican,
pledged to vote for McKinley and sup
porting sound money.
After this little preliminary had
been arranged G. I. Staples nominated
B. M. VanAlstein, for auditor and
Geo. H. Deans presented the name of
E. E. Whitney. J. H. Ward, L. S.
Lib^by and G. I. Staples were appointed
tellers and a ballot was taken witjj the
following result*
B.JL VanAlstein 2ft
E J!, Whitney .-&-., .22
Total 42
Mr. Whitney was thereupon de
clared the Republican nominee for
county auditor.
F. M. Campbell was the only man
mentioned for county treasurer and his
nomination was secured by acclama
tion.
Then occurred the great contest of
the convention. Five men were
anxious to catch criminals and con
duct mortgage sales and had been
hustling hard for several weeks past to
secure the endorsement of thetsonven
tion. The names of the candidates
presented were E. Mark, E. D. Clag
gett, Harry Newton, J. O. Baker, and
J. T. D. Sadley. The first ballot was
as follows:
E. Mark 11
E. D. Claggett 13
J. O. Baker 11
J. T. D. Sadley 4
Harry Newton 3
Total 42
There being no choice a second bal
lot was taken the only change being
that Newton's name was dropped and
his three votes went to Mark. The
third ballot was:
Mark 16
Claggett 17
Baker 6
Sadley 3
Total 42
The fourth ballot was "stuffed"
and therefore thrown out, and the fifth
reulted in the retirement of all the
candidates except Claggett and Mark
and each had 21 votes to his credit.
The 'sixth ballot showed the same
situation but Mark was victorious in
the seventh the vote standing:
Mark 22
Claggett 19
.,..-.,..41
Mark was declared thet nominee for
sheriff ^f-j
(s
John Goulding seemed to have done
a pretty good job of repairing on his
fences for no opposition to his nomin
ation for register of deeds showed it
self and he was named by acclamation.
L. S. Briggs, too, seemed to have
lost none of his popularity, for his
nomination was also made by ac
clamation, and his name will appear
on the ticket as the Republican can
didate for clerk of the district court.
There were two aspirants for the of
fice of judge of probate' in the persons
of R. W. Freer, the present incumbent,
and J. S. Bouckvj^Mr. Bouck declaring
himself as a thorough-going Repub
lican while Mr. Freer insisted that he
was a Republican but not a sound
money man. The convention then pro-
ceeded to ballot and
up as follows.
J. S. Bouck
R. W. Freer
Highest of all in Leayening Power.Latest U. S. Gov't Report
Total 42
On motion Mr. Bouck was made the
unanimous choice of the convention.
A4J. A. Ross and Charles A. Dickey
were both desirous of securing the en
dorsement of the convention for their
candidacies for county attorney and
Mr. Dickey pledged himself to support
the ticket even if he should be de
feated for the nomination. Mr. Ross
would not give up the right to run as
an independent candidate and his
name was therefore withdrawn.
Dickey was thereupon nominated by
acclamation, as were J. P. Mitchell,
surveyor O. C. Tarbox, coroner and
Moseb Cone, court commissioner.
For county superintendent there
were three aspirants: Mrs. O. Bar
ker, Mrs. R. Patterson and J. J.
Parsons. The first ballot did not ex
press a choice, but on the second Mrs.
Barker secured a majority of the votes
cast and was declared the nominee.
For county commissioner from the
first district S. Libby was named.
The nomination for the second district
was passed. C. W. Burnhelm was
chosen in the third, G. H. Deans,
fourth, and E. W. Cundy in the fifthl
A county committee consisting of
five members was appointed by the
chair as follows- S Briggs, N. M.
Cook, William Orton, ^Charles Ander
son and W. J. Blakley.
This completed the work of the con
vention and it adjourned sine die.
Most of the delegates and spectators
went to Milaca in the evening where a
rally was held. D. F. Reese, clerk of
the supreme court, spoke. Mr. Reese
gave a good address and stirred up an
immense amount of enthusiasm for the
Republican ticket. At the close a club
was organized with 64 members.

Hall and Ryder Spoke
Monday Evening:.
Last Monday evening saw Jesmer's
opera house filled with an audience
which had assembled to listen to ad
dresses which were to be made by S.
H. Hall, the "potato king," and J. J.
Ryder, a Democrat whose stomach re
fused to assimilate the 16 to 1 silver
dose concocted at Chicago.
Mr. Hall was the first speaker aud
for an hour and thirty minutes facts
and figures were fed to the eager
audience with a rapidity that dis
tanced all efforts of reporters. He
spoke principally on the effect of free
coinage on the farmers and is perhaps
better fitted to treat this phase of the
question than any other man in Min
nesota. He proved that the price of
potatoes was not depreciated by the
appreciation of money, but by "the ap
preciation of the tubers in the hill."
His address treated of the history of
depreciated currency and the condi
tion of the farmers in those eras and
was entirely different from anything
yet delivered from the rostrum this
year. His speech was well received
and the gentleman made an excellent
impression. His address was not
flowery but was so filled with fact and
argument that it was deeply interesting
Mr. Ryder, who followed him, is in
an excellent position to talk to Demo
crats, having been one ever since he
saw the light of day until his party
prostituted itself at Chicago. He was
a farmer boy and could remember the
hard times of years ago and recalled
them to freshen the recollection of the
farmer who had once gone through a
period of depreciated currency but
seemed to have forgotten the hard
ships in the memories of the pleasures
which had followed the restoration of
honest money. Bryan had declare the
issue of the campaign a sectional one
and was fighting on that line. Ryder
recollected the sectionalism which
made life one of suffering in Kentucky
during the late war. He brightened
the memories of the old soldiers on this
point, too, and his address at this point
was full of pathos. His arraignment
of the Democratic party was scathing
but not abusive and his arguments
based on facts. Senator Allen's recent
address was .thoroughly dissected and
many good points scored from that
source. The gentleman is a bright,
entertaining speaker and no one pres
ent regretted having heard him.
The Glee club rendered several,
catchy selections which were highly
appreciated by the audience.

TW O COMMONS.
Th e' Populists and Democrats^
Met Monday to Nomi-
nate Tickets.^
.Z1
Monday was the day set for the nomi
nating conventions of the Democrats
and Populists, but somehow many of
them missed connections and only nine
Democratic delegates put in an ap
pearance, while the Populists with
authority numbered seventeen The
Democrats met in the forenoon and ad
journed to meet at 1 o'clock, at which
hour the Populists were to be in ses
sion.
Both conventions took up the work
shortly after 1 o'clock. H. Chad
bourne acted as chairman of the Demo
cratic convention and J. M. Bolland
was chosen secretary. One thing was
noticeable in the make-up of the con
vention and that was the absence of
many of the old wheelhorses of the
party in former years. For the Popu
lists R. S. Shaw filled the executive
seat and William Sanford acted as
scribe
As soon as the matter of credentials
was satisfactorily settled a committee
of three from each convention met to
figure on a fusion ticket. After a long
consultation it reported the following
choice: For auditor, I. S Mudgett
treasurer, C. H. Chadbourne register,
E. E. Price sheriff, George Buck:,
clerk of court, Nels Nelson: judge of
probate, R. W. Freer coroner, H. C.
Cooney court commissioner, James
Price county attorney, J. N. Rogers.
This list was acceptable to the Dem.-U
ocrats but not so with the Pops. A
glance at the list will show the reason:
Only one Populist secured a plum.
The report was accepted, however, but
the work of tearing it to piece*, began
immediately. When the bottom was
reached William Burke had been sub
stituted for C. H. Chadbourne and
James Vinson for George Buck. Both
parties agreed on Miss Marion Mud
gett for superintendent of schools and
F. Cater commissioner for- the first
district, S. Shaw, second and A. J.
Barrett, fourth.
The Democrats meanwhile had been
working to secure the reinstatement
of Chadbourne and Buck and finally
the Populists consented to reconsider
the nominations. William Burke was
called in and said that he placed party
above personal advancement and would
step down gracefully if the conversion
said so. The convention thereupon
deposed Mr. Burke and took up Mr.
Chadbourne, but adjourned before any
thing was done in the Buck-Vinson
matter.
There was very little enthusiasm
shown and the conventions dragged
very perceptibly, especially that* ofJ
the Populists.
The Populist county committee for^,
the ensuing term is made up as follows:
R. S. Shaw, chairman, W. B. Carter,
M. C. Cutler.
The Democrats decided to have a*-?i
county committee consisting of one
from each precinct. C. H. Chadbourne
was made chairman and the others ap
pointed were: J. M. Bolland, Milaca
C. Lundgren^ Bogus Brook: James
Price, Milo. Other appointments will
be made later. A-K 5
Morris spoke in both Foreston and M
Milaca this week. He spoke in Fores- jfe|
ton Monday night, as advertised, to a
large audience, but was unable to keep
his engagement for an evening speech
at Milaca. He spoke in the afternoon, ||H
however, and the mills shut down to 111
allow the employes an opportunity to P|f
attend. Great enthusiasm was aroused til
in both villages. Tuesday evening the
crowd gathered again at Milaca and
Hon. J. D. Jones and D. W. Bruckart
expounded the Republican doctrine.
J. D. Jones, of Long Prairie, who
has been in Mille county this week in
the interests of his candidacy for the
legistature, reports that things are
looking all right all over the district.
Bryan's visit to three counties of the
district Tuesday does not alarm him
a.nyr He says that it may stir up the
Populists somev but they are
^thoroughly whipped,^
