DELEGATES AND ELECTORS
Tliey Are Chosen With Little Dif

Indorsing- McKinley'N Ad
Large and small photographs of Senator
Hanna's "Man of Desilny," surrounded
by flags, constituted the principal decora

at the state Republican convention.
The 3,100 delegates had assembled to se
lect four delegates at large and four al
ternates to the national Republican con
vention at Philadelphia, and to choose
nine candidates for presidential electors.
The four delegates at large had been se
lected by the leaders several days ago,and
the only thing to do was to ratify this "se
lection. There was some confusion over
the choice of an alternate for Senator
Nelson, but J. Frank Wheaton, of Henne
pin, secured the place by modestly nomi
nating himself and forcing the convention
to indorse him. Minneapolis attempted to
"hog" things by having N. O. Werner, of
Hennf pin placed as one of the presiden
tial electors at large, but this was more
than the country delegates could stand,
and John L. Gazelle, of Jackson county,
was elected, it requiring a roll call, how
ever, before the Werner people were sat
The other feature of the gathering was
the effort io boom W. D. Washburn as a
vice presidential candidate.
Gideon S. Ives, of Nicollet county, was
nominated by acclamation as temporary
chairman, and John F. Selb, of Ramsey;
Simon Michelet, of Hennepln, and D. W.
Meeker, of Clay, were chorfen secretaries.
Dar Reese, of Ramsey, said there would
be no need of a committee on credentials,
but as a formality B. H. Timberiake, of
Hemu>pin; V. H. Hugo, of St. Louis, and
W. J. Annon, of Anoka, were appointed,
and, without reading the lists, the dele
gates were declared seated.
Sam Lowenstein. of Ramsey, acted as
chairman for a minute, and the tempo
rary organization was made permanent.
A committee on resolutions, consisting
of W. H. Grimshaw, A. R. McGlll, W. B.
Douglas, R. W. Jones, Alexander Fiddes,
J. L. Gibbs, P. J. Davis, and H. J. Henne
man, was appointed, It being understood
that the representation should be one
from each district. Mr. Jones withdrew,
stating that he was the second from the
Mr. Grimshaw wanted half an hour re

man John H. Steele, of the Republican
state central committee, had thoughtful

of the platform prepared for the commit

take any adjournment.
Senator Greer, of Lake City, offered a
resolution electing Senator Davis, Sen
ator Nelson, Thomas Lowry, of Minne
apolis, and Senator Lord, of Kasson, as
delegates at large to Philadelphia, and
this was unanimously adopted.
Mr. Rooerts, of Hennepln, nominated
Kenneth Clark, of Ramsey, as alternate
for Senator Davis.
J. Frank Wheaton, of Hennepin, elec
trified the convention. He said that there
was a concerted effort on the part of the
Democratic party to secure the negro
vote. The only way this could be pre
vented in this state was to name him as
an alternate to the Philadelphia conven
T. S. Cook, of Ramsey, seconded the
nomination of Mr. Wheaton, and advised
the convention to send him as an alter

party stands for money laws that benefit
all the people alike, the borrower as well
as the lender, laws that tend to reduce
and equalize interest rates in all parts of

WASHINGTON, May 36.—Discussion of
the administration of affairs in Cuba by

attention of the senate during the greater
part of today's session. ;
Mr. Bacon (Ga.) addressed the senate
at length on his resolution directing the
committee on relations with Cuba to make
an investigation of the conduct of finan

due the people of this cpuntry to know
how things in the island were being
conducted, and since the disclosure of the
last few days of shortage of funds in the
postal service, the obligation to make an
investigation was doubly heavy. He said
the honor of the country depended upon
its beinf able to clear away the charges.
He insisted that the government of the

ARMY CANTEEN FAVORED.
Secretary Root today sent to Chairman
Hull, of the house committee on m'litary
affairs, an exhaustive collection of opin
ions on the question of the "army can
teen," gathered by Adjt. Gen. Corbin
from every branch of the military serv
ice. The inquiry was made because of
the introduction of a bill to prevent the
Bale, or deal;ng In beer or any intoxicat
ing liquor upon any military premises,
Mr. Hull having invited the opinion of
the war department officials. Secretary
Root, in a brief Indorsement, says:
"I think the enactment of this b!ll
would be Injurious to the temperance,
morals and discipline of the enlisted men
of the army."
Gen. Corbin, in an elaborate answer to
the inquiry, says:
"If the prohibition, of beer on mil'tary
premises could be effective in bringing
about temperance orr .the* part of the sol
diers, the adjutant keneral would un-'
hesitatingly give his-Indorsement, and in
doing so he believes he would voice the
practically unanimous sentiment of the
officers or" the army, but, on the con
trary. It can be stated >as a fact that
the clos'iig of the canteen section of the
post exchange would be to have such
soldiers as are now content with an oc
casional glass of beer, with n the limits
of the post, go to the whisky shops and
dens of vice that once surrounded per
manent posts, and which, on the pas
sage of such a law, would soon revive,
he cannot too strongly express the opin
ion that such legislation would be Inimi
cal to the best interests of the army."
Representative Overstreet, of Indiana,
today submitted the majority report on
the anti-trust bill agreed to by the com
mittee on judiciary yesterday. It follows
the same general lines as the report fa
voring a constitutional amendment, ex
cept to show that the present legislation
goes to the limit of the powers of con
gress, whereas a constitutional amend
ment would give congress new and much
needed powers to cope with the various
forms of trusts. Until this enlarged con
stitutional power is given, the report
states that congress can merely strength
en the Sherman act, not by attempting
to repress, control or define trusts, but
by declaring them illegal for the purpose
of interstate and foreign commerce.

HAT PIN REMOVED PROM A GIRL'S
SIDE AFTER YEARS OF

Extraordinary Fact That She Con
not Remember When or How
the Pin Became Imbedded
In Her Side.
EAU CLAIRE, Wis., May 16.—(Special.)
—Miss Barbara K. Nobel, eighteen years,
daughter of Mrs. A. Knobel, of Altoona,
has been an invalid for three years. What
the trouble was puzzled the state doo
tor In Chippewa valley. Miss Knobel
complained of a pain in her side, and
not only d!d the doctors do all they
could, but she was operated on in the
hospital for what Is known as floating
kidney, but all to no purpose. Mrs. Hen
riettie Williams, hearing of the case,
mentioned it to her husband, who owns
an X-ray machine, and both concluded
it might be a case for the X-rays. A
doctor was culled, and, to the astonish
ment of all, a long siender metallic po nt
was discovered in her right sidt imbed
ded in the muscles. The doctor cut into
the flesh and extracted a steel hat pin
three and one-fourth inches in length.
There was no head to the hat pin, and it
had evidently been working its way to
and fro in her system for years.
What is still more extraordinary,
neither the girl nor any of her family
can remember any accident whatever
that could cause the admission of a steel
wire nearly four inches in length into
her system. Since the operation, May 14,
the girl has experienced great relief, and
expects to be as strong as ever in a

found dead late this evening south of
the city by Mrs. Samuel Mathews and
Mrs. Ned Davis, while out driving. Ol

Rain Came at Last.
CLOQUET, Minn., May 16.—(Special.)—
The rain last evening was a God send
and revived the drooping spirits of busi
ness men and laborers, and especially
stimulated plant life, which a few daya
ago was withered and dying. The ap
pearance of the sky before the rain la.st
evening reminded us of a baby cyclone,
and we feared a repetition of the sad
scene of New Richmond, Wis., last year;
but the eJectric force was not felt mu.-Ii
here, except a wrench of the arm ex
perienced by Rev. Father Homer, whm
was adjusting barrels under a water
sj>out attached to the church. The elec
trical current came from the metallic
cross, through the water spouts, on the
eves of the church. The mill men have
sent a crew of men up river to utilize the
rain in getting logs down. It is hoped
they will be successful, as business Is
very dull on account of insufficient water
to drive logs.

NERVOUSNESS OF WOMEN,
What Peruna Has Done For
a Brilliant Actress.
JV;i_ jULIA MARLOWE.
In a recent letter to The Peruna Medi
cine Co., Miss Julia Marlowe, of New
York City, has the following to say of
"I am glad to write my endorse
ment of the great remedy, Peruna,
as a nerve tonic. I do so most
heartily." Julia Marlowe.
Nervousness Is very common among
women. This condition is due to anemic
nerve centers. The nerve centers are the
reservoirs of nervous vitality. These cen
ters become bloodless for want of proper
nutrition. This is especially true in the
spring season. Every spring a host of
invalids are produced as the direct result
of weak nerves.
This could be easily obviated by the
use of Peruna. Peryna strikes at the
root of the difficulty by correcting the
digestion. Digestion furnishes nutrition

food furnishes these reservoirs of life
with vitality which leads to strong, steady

especially those who have vocations that
are trying to the nervous system. Pe
runa furnishes the lasting lnvigoratlori
for the nerves that such people so much
need. Thousands of testimonials from
women In all parts of the United States
are being- received every year. Such un
