they make great showing that it is
no-body's race. Miss Jacobsen made
a great spurt and is right along side
the leaders. Almost as much interest
is being taken in who shall winJJ the
handsome Kingsbury piano as in who
shall win the Auto. The vote of this

on either of the .big prizes. Remem

THE DENISON CONNER CLUB
Gives the Lie to False Statements as to
Judge Conner's Standing in His
As the best possible answer to the
lies being circulated by such papers
as the Hamilton County Hornet, to
the effect that Hon. J. P. Conner
would not receive the support of the
republicans of his home town, a
number of his friends met last even
ing and decided to form a Conner
Club for Denison. Not until ten
o'clock this morning were the lists
of the republican voters of the city
prepared and many of the lists were
not ready until afternoon, nevertheless
—in the one day—over 300 signa
tures were secured. This is a mag
nificent showing and the number will
be increased rapidly within the next
two days. It is safe to say that be
fore the end of the week 99 per cent
of the republicans of Denison will
be members of the Conner Club,
pledged to do all they can to secure
his nomination. No man ever re
ceived a more hearty and unanimous
endorsement at the hands of Denison
republicans. It makes it safe to
estimate that Judge Conner will have
more than 1000 majority in the Craw
ford county primaries.
CANDIDATE FOR AUDITOR
Hink of Washington Township
will Ask Republicans to Support Him
Mr. J. H. Hink of Washington
township has filed a well signed peti
tion asking that his name be placed on
the republican primary ballot as a
candidate for county auditor. He is
a man thirty-two years old has at
tended the common schools and the
Denison college and is competent for
the office. He is the son of Mr. Otto
Hink and so comes from a fine family.
As th»re will be no other candidate
for this office on the republican ballot
Mr. Hink is now as good as nomina
ted. He means to make an active
canvass and believes he can beat his

0RAT0R RANKIN COMING
A Rankin the Great Temperance
Orator Will be in Denison Next Week
Announcement is made that A. C.
Rankin will begin a series of meeting
at Denison on next Sunday. Mr.
Rankin is now devoting his powers
as a speaker in the interests of the
"State Marshall law" of which he is
the originator and sponsor. The
chief feature of the law is the ap
pointment by the governor cf certain
officials who will go to localities
where the liquor law is not kept and
enforce the same. Of course the law
is specially designed to effect cities
like Dubuque, Davenport, Sioux City,
and Clinton where it would in be in
jurious to the business and property
of an individual to become prominent
ly interested in enforcing the Iowa
law. Mr. Rankin is saying kind
things for Mr. Hamilton of Des
Moines, who is the candidate for gov
ernor on a platform demanding the
wiping out of the saloons of Iowa.
Mr. Rankin will have big meetings
for he is an entertaining speaker, and
once heard will be heard again. The
first meeting will be held in the Bap
tist church on Sunday atternoon.
A BIG DUCK STORY.
A Duck Lives in Well Seven Weeks
On adarch sixth a duck fell in a
wtfell forty feet aeep at Van Viiet's
place in the north part of town. The
duck was seen to fall in by some of
the family, but disappeared under the
water and it was supposed to have
been killed in the fall. There was
ahout two feet of water in the well.
It was bricked up about five feet in
the bottom and caved behind the
brick. The duck must have lodged
behind the brick and could not get
out as it wa9 never seen untii the 20th
of April. Mr. Van Vliet concluded
to fill the well. He dumped seven
wheel barrows of dirt in it. Then
looking, saw the duck swimming on
the water. It was very thin but
otherwise seemed to be all right.
