PERFECT HARMONY PREVAILS.
Upon his return from the con
gressional committee meeting held
at St. Cloud on Tuesday, Chairman
Searle stated that the meeting was
replete with encouraging features.
Eighteen of the twenty counties of
the district were represented by
members of the committee in per
son. The reports offered by the
members, who by the way area con
servative class of men, were of the
most assuring character, said Mr.
Searle. An excellent feeling exists
among the republicans and other
supporters of Congressman Morris
in the district. Perfect harmony
prevails and there is nothing in
sight to occasion the slightest un
easiness or apprehension regarding
the outcome. We expect to re-elect
Congressman Morris by a larger
majority than in 1896 or 1898. The
committee has gone over the field
carefully and they are satisfied that
there can be but one result in the
district, and that is Republican suc
William Getty, of Duluth, is sec
retary, and Thomas Owens, of Two
Harbors, is treasurer of the Repub
lican congressional committee.
WOULD BE A STRONG CANDIDATE.
Hibbing- News: Chas. G. Miller,
of Duluth, representing the Duluth
Paper & Stationery company, was
in the city Tuesday and made The
News office a pleasant call. Mr.
Miller has been "mentioned" as a
possible candidate for sheriff on the
Democratic ticket, and when asked
the question point blank remarked
that he would not refuse the nomi-
nation if it were offered' to him.
While it is impossible for the Dem
ocrats to defeat Mr. Sargent, the
Republican nominee, it is generally
conceded that Mr. Miller, who has a
host of friends of all political faiths
throughout the county, would make
the best showing of any man now
known of in the fusion ranks.
HENRY TRUELSEN, ex-mayor of
Duluth, who seeks the Democratic
nomination for congress, was on
the ranges this week looking after
delegation possibilities. Mr. Truel
sen is most favorably known in Du
luth and on the ranges, but it is
questionable if his strength in the
district at large equals that of C. O.
Baldwin, who is also a candidate
for the nomination.
HON. J. B. DOLLIVAR, of Iowa, is
