A ldrich Chi3. Curator, Historical Dept MEET, Denison Witnesses a Fierce Strug gle For Office. ROMANS IS DICTATOR. Wright, Carey, Kruger, Crlswell, Qigux anil Smith the Candidates Nominated. The Democratic county convention was largely attended. Of its results the democrats are themselves the best judges. Whether the whole was the result of a ring or not they know and none better. The candidates are fairly good men. Col. Wright is well known, as is also the REVIEW'S opinion of him. Carey has been nine years in the court house and he had a narrow escape from defeat. Kruger had the easiest victory. Gigax was a new man brought out to defeat Herman Schultz. Criswell and Smith were in line for renomination and both got it. The Romans, Wright, Kruger, Gigax combination won. The democrats of the county may bow down to Romans. The tables showing the vote are given below, we would advise each democrat to cut them out and paste them in his hat, they will show who did the busi ness. The Proceedings. At 11:25 o'clock County Chairman £. J. Farrelly called the convention to order and announced that Mr. W. A. Davie, of Boyer township, had been selected as temporary chairman. Mr. Davie took the platform and said: "Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of tbe convention.—It is customary when a man is called upon like this to make a speech. I want to say I am not prepared for a speech, and when I gaze over this assem bly and see the character of it 1 don't be lieve a speech is necessary. I believe in Crawford county we have now nearer complete harmony than we have ever had before. In the past there have been factions. Time has removed the sore spots and we are here united and anxious to secure candidates to strength en the ticket. We came here for the party and not for the individual. Some times in our own particular location we may think our candidate is the only man in the convention we may see things dif ferently, when it is our duty to acquiesce in the opinion of the majority. Gentlemen, what is your further plea sure? On call for a secretary Mr. Van Slylce of Manilla was suggested, but as 'he was aot a delegate his name was withdrawn, and that of F. A. Jackson of Manilla substituted. Mr. Jackson was chosen. It was moved and carried that a committee of three on credentials be appointed. The chair appointed G. D. Brokaw of Manilla, Chas. Smith of Denison and W. W. Cushman of Char ter Oak. A committee on permanent organ isation was voted for and appointed, as follows: M. Schacht, of Iowa A. H. Rudd of Dow City and Hans Suhr of West Side. On resolutions the following were appointed: J. B. Romans, W. W. Rhodenbaugh and E. W. Houston. On motion G. L. Caswell was made assistant secretaryiof the convention. Adjourned at 1:30 p. m. AFTERNOON SESSION. Reportof the Committees on Creden tials,Organization and Refcolutlons. It was 1:50 o'clock before tbe after noon session was called to order. The delegates and candidates bad improved the noon recess well and all were busy as bees fixing up their fences and get ting ready for the great struggle of the afternoon. On convening the report of the com mittee on credentials was called for, and was read by W. W. Cushman, finding all townships and precincts represented, The Resolutions. Resolved, by the democrats of Craw ford county in regular convention as sembled that we reassert and reailirm our faitli in the democratic party, its measures, policies and leaders, and again declare our faith in the party platform adopted in Chicago in 189(5. Resolved that in W. J. WHO cured, Spain should be compelled to abandon her possessions in America and permit her lormer colonies to choose their own iorin of government by (as Jefferson said) the free consent of the governed. Resolved, That we favor the political measure known as the referendum, which requires that all legislation af fecting the whole, people must first be submitted to tlieir approval, and the people's verdict shall not be reconsider ed in any court, but shall become law. Resolved, That we favor a reason able, rigid economy in county affairs and a frequent and close scrutiny in the conduct of public servants occupy ing positions of trust or profit in the county. All the testimony of recent events in the war with Spain make it the imper ative duty of every loyal and patriotic citizen to most emphatically condemn the official corruption and negligence whiWi has transformed our volunteer soldiers, the very tlower and pride of our commonwealth, from healthy. he irty young men into broke'n spirited p"d disease burdened human beings. We believe and declare that the gov ernment should investigate, condemn and punish every act of official negli gence and carelessness which has rob bed our men of health or helped to send them to untimely graves while under the care and within the environments of their own county. J. B. ROMANS. W. W. CusnMAX, E. W. HOUSTON, A second resolution was offered as follows, and was unanimously adopted: "Resolved, That the democrats of Craw ford county, iu convention assembled, en dorse the nominations made at Carroll for judges of this judicial district, vis: F.

MANY BALLOTS ARE CAST Over Nineteen Hundred Votes Cast, Kesut the Kules and Help Your Friends. c\v Subscribers Entitled to Ten lustra Votes. Sixreon days remain before the close of the REVIEW contests, aud from pres ent indications there will be at least ten thousand coupons voted before it is de cided at the county fair on September 22. A large number of candidates are at work in dead earnest and mean to win if it is possible. Many are taking advantage of the REVIEW'S offer to give each new subscriber 10 extra votes. To assist candidates in securing help from those not now taking the REVIEW we have made a spejflpl trial offer of 25 cents to January to bona fide new subscribers. Candidates or their friends may secure these extra voting coupons by calling or sending to the REVIEW office. For every new subscriber they can add 10 votes to their total and the subscriber is entitled to vote the cou pons in the papers received by him just the same as any other subscriber. Ballots should be deposited in the box provided at the postoffice or sent to the REVIEW office. The editors are using every effort to make the balloting per fectly fair. No person connected with the REVIEW office in any capacity is al lowed to vote in the contest. Remember the Frizes* The most popular young lady in Den ison is to receive twenty weeks' free scholarship in the Denison Normal School. This will give a splendid start toward a good education in the best school of its kind in the state of Iowa. The second prize is a very pret ty watch and chain. You can see it in Chamberlin's window and the fact that it comes from Chamberlin is a guaran tee of the first-class quality of the goods. The out of town girls are to be treated just as liberally, for twenty weeks the doors of Denison Normal School will swing open free of charge to the most popular "young lady. And the one re ceiving the next highest number of votes is to receive a 'dream of a bon net," a real $10 worth of the latest mil linery. This pretty hat will be trimmed by Miss Anna Schumaker, J. P. Miller & Co's. popular milliner. It is anyone's race as yet, and a sys tematic effort could make any one of the candidates a winner. How the bal lots stand: DKNISON CONTEST.
