IOWA'S PLATFORM MAY Des Moines, la., June 8.—With only five counties missing tonight Governor Carroll, republican is renominated by a majority of 704 votes. The missing counties are known as Carroll strong holds, and probably will bring his to *fal up to 1,500 to 2,000. The surprise of the election is the majority rolled up by Judge Prouty. progressive, over Congressman Hull. Prouty carried every county in the district, his unofficial majority being 3.106. Even the most sanguine pro gressive had hoped for little better than a small majority. Two years ago Hull was nominated bv forty votes over Prouty. The re markable shift is attributed solely to antagonism to the course of the "stand pat" congressmen, of whom Hull was (foe on the tariff and railroad legis lation.

The regular republicans claim they will control the next state convention, having a bare majority of the 1,400 delegates chosen yesterday. If this proves true and no hitch occurs to mar present plans, the insurgent con gressional delegation will at best get but brief mention. The platform, it is stated, may go so far as to con demn the course of Senators Cum mins and Dolliver. The delegates then formed in line behind the band and all were escort ed down Broadway to the armory, where the closing session was to oc cur.

This is the fourteenth consecutive term as sec retary for Mr. Reade. He is an in dustrious and conscientious worker for the best interests of the fire men's organization and it was large ly through his efforts that the pres ent convention is such a decided success. as the carbonic acid gas does very little, if any, damage. From sixty to eighty per cent of all fires are ex tinguished by chemicals. Can any better proof be given of their effi ciency? More attention should also be paid to the construction of build jings and to fire prevention. Clean liness and watchfulness are two very [good fire preventers. A fireman should pay as much attention to fire prevention as to the extinguishing of fires. It was moved and seconded that the paper of Chief Craswell be print ed and placed on the minutes of this meeting. Motion carried. Chief F. C. Robeson of Cando then presented a paper on the topic, "What is the Best Method to Pursue to Maintain Interest in a Volunteer Firemen's Association?" Mr. Robe son's paper was very well prepared and was one of the best things pre sented to the convention. Upon motion it will be printed as a part of the 1910 minutes.

Dixon of Fargo, repre senting the Eureka Fire Hose Manu facturing company, then addressed the convention on the subject of civic preservation in relation to fires. Mr. Dixon dwelt extensively upon the enormuos fire losses in the United States every year, and suggested sev eral remedies for the same.
