THE POLITICAL POT Things Are Warming Up In Several Stales And The Fun Will Soon Begin. In the last general elections, Mis souri, tho stronghold of unterrlllod democracy, lined up In tin) republi can toluiuu, a mysterious strungcr. In th nelzhborlng Btalo of Iowa, long ft solidly republican Gibraltar, presenting an Impregnable front to tho hosts of democracy, tho situation may bo reversed this fall. It Is tho Id Htoiy of n house dlvldod nRaliut Itself, the factional fight among tho republicans leading tho more cnthu tuBtlc democrats 'to bollevo that when the Mute convention mods at Waterloo noxt Tuesday a ticket, will be nominated which will result In Iowa lining tip with tho Solid South as a democratic state. However that may be, It Is certain that the coming ranipalRn will he the most hotly con tested ever held In the state, and In consequence much Interest attaches to tho coming convvntlon. A dozen ' prominent democrats have been men tioned In connection with the guber natorial nomination, and it is yet un safe to prophecy tho direction in which tho political cat will Jump. Tho convention will lw held at Chautau qua park, a mile up tho river from Waterloo, Hnd the people of the town, regardless of political affiliations, are preparing to give the delegates the tthw of their lives.' "Absence makes tho heart prow fonder," some one bus remarked, and , the adage Is not w ithout n current ap plication.

Hobbertu, who was territo rial attorney general during tho Fer guson administration, was a char ter member of tho old Kingfisher crowd of republicans which onco dominated the territory. He will have the support of ex-Governor Tom Fcr glson, tho red-haired orator from Hlaine county, himself a candidate for congress In the Second district, "mil" Grimes will manage the Hob berts campaign from Guthrie, where headquarters have been opened. Throughout Oklahoma tho fight for tho republican congressional nomina tions revolves about the personality of PelVgate McGuIre, and much bit terness has resulted. Canyon Win.

The Troop B hoys have been on the qui vivo nil day, gelling things In readiness for their departure this evening. Tim boys are probably aware that a uniform lends distinc tion to the wearer, nnd nro nothing loth to displavlug their military rig glng. At any rate, the well set-up llgurcs of tho young soldiers In buff kakbl and campaign hats have given quite a martial air to tho town today Ths horses lor the troop were ship ped yesterday, nnd will reach tho camp In amplo time for tho inaitou bers. The horses wero selected and supplied, for tho most part, by Lieut. John MeKnlght, oivo of tho best Horsemen in tho aiate. They are good horses, every ono of them, used to tho saddle and seasoned to bard usage. Few regular army troops can show so good a lot of animals, and Troop 11 has reason to Iks proud of her mount. Mont of tho drilling has boon done without horses, owing to tho diffi culty of keeping mounts In readi ness nt all times. Tho troop will probably need Home team-work In mounted evolution, but th boys Indi vidually are good riders, A number of the boys nro "bronck riders" of no mean ability, and would welcome an opportunity to do some riding for tho boys from other parts of tin state. There are only four troops of cav alry in the state volunteer guard. Troop A Is at Houston, Troop C at Austin and Troop D nt Corsleana. Captain Ingerton of Troop B Is sec ond ranking captain of tho regiment, and. if he claimed it, could rank much higher. Ho has held his com mission for fifteen years, and is one of tho best military men in the vol unteer service. At the time of the Spanish-American war Captain In gerton raised a company of Pnnhan dlo Bough riders, but the affair with Spain was settled too quickly to al low the Panhandle boys to got Into action. John MeKnlght, first lieutenant, and John Holding, second lieuten ant, the other i ommissloned officers, are well versed In the cavalry arm of the service, and are thorough horse men. The non-commissioned officers are: Will Montgomery, tlrst ser gvant; Pierre Montgomery, second sergeant; Frban Klrkmau. quarter master sergeant ; Bosooe Johnson, Stephen Hidings and Hu Moore ser geants; Waller Can well, first corpo ral; ('has. Veale, Chas. Hediick, Kay Kutch, T. X. Tierce, corporals. Stephen Hidings, expert r'lleman, goes with tho troop, and is In tine shape for retaining t ho state cham pionship. Sharpshooters are of threo ranks riflemen .sharpshooters nnd expert riflemen. Hidings Is in the highest class, and last year won the championship over all by the highest sco ever made in tho state. The encampment will bo held at tho regular grounds, Camp Mabry, near Austin. Already several regi ments of regulars nro in camp there, and preparations for the maneuvers this year are on n larger scale than ever before. Democratic County Convention.

T. Pierce fol lowed yesterday with vnrious results. Pierre, some time ago, worked for Mr. Lnndergren. the creamery man. In tho final settlement Pierce claimed eleven dollars more than Lnndergren was disponed to pay. Lnndergren alleged several conditions which, Pierce had failed to comply with, and was for settling tho affair by arbi tration. Trooper Plerro, hoewvor, as developments showed, is a man of war, and Is for settling dlfllcnltlca by appeal to arms. Yesterday Pierce, who Is a corpO' nil of Troop B, was detailed by tho officer of the day, to urrest a trooper who had failed to report for drill He was In uniform and carried his sldo-arms, consisting of ono real serious-looking Colt'a revolver. After carrying tho message ho went to LundeiKren'a place and demanded the money. Lnndergren refused, and Pk-roo arguod the matter for a while, but finally brought the Colt's Into play, and, with that persuasion. Mr. Lundorgren signed a check for tho amount. So far Tierce's war policy succeed ed, but before he got away from Lun dergren's place Marshall J. M. Sni der arrested him on a warrant and carried him to Jail, The warrant sworn out charged him with assault Iwth intent to kill. Corporal Pierce spent the night In Jail, and if Capt. Ingerton and Lieut. Goldlng had not come to his roseue, he would have remained there for some time. These gentlemen went on his bond $250 this morning, so he will de part with Troop B this evening.
