DEPUTY CANNING STEPS OUT
Sheriff Cousins Objects to His Candidacy
for Office of Sheriff.
CANNING ANNOUNCES HE IS AFTER IT
Republican Politicians Are Some
what Surprised at Cousins' Can
dida)? for a Tklrd
Matters political cam to a show down
In the sheriff's office yesterday afternoon
with the result that Deputy Ed Canning
was summarily given his walking papers
by Captain Cousins. Canning's enforced
retirement from the position which he
has held ever since Captain Cousins as
sumed the offleo of sheriff In January, 1900,
created considerable surprise at the court
house and In local republican circles.
Canning's summary dismissal followed a
private conference between him and Sher
iff Cousin. Captain Cousins stated that
he was a candidate for a third term and
that If Canning was also a candidate, as
had been reported In the papers, the sooner
ho quit the office the better. Canning as
sured the captain that bo was a candidate
and had every intention of staying in the
Held. "Well," replied Sheriff Cousins, "If
you are a candidate you are against me
and I will not have any man working for
me who Is against me." Deputy Canning
assured the captain that ho was not against
him any more than that he was for Can
ntng. At the same time Canning called
the attention of Captain Cousins to the
fact that ' it was well understood threa
years ago that he would be a candidate at
the expiration ot his. Captain Cousins',
second term. This explanation, however.
was not satisfactory to the sheriff and
Deputy Canning was requested to turn
over his star forthwith, which he did.
Create Soma Surprise. .
Th announcement that Captain Cousins
seriously contemplated being a candidate
for a third term created no small surprise
In local republican circles. Last fall when
so much objection was raised by the rank
and file to th republican renominating
men for third and oven fourth terms, the
republican county central committee Is
sued a circular In which It promised that
the candidates tor the several offices to be
voted on this fall would be all new men
and that th two-term policy would hence
forth rule. It was generally supposed that
this pledge would be kept and the rank
and 111 of the party wa only kept In line
last fall by this understanding.
. Friends of Deputy Canning, who for a
number ot years has been a prominent
factor In local politics and who Is chair
man ot the city republican central com'
mltteo, assert that threa years ago when
Captain Cousins announced hfs candidacy
for tb offlc of . sheriff that Mr. Canning
could hay then aeoured the ' nomination,
hut that ho withdrew In favor of Captain
Cousin on th distinct understanding that
at th end of the captain's second term,
If he should be fortunate enough to saoure
It that Mr. Canning would then be a can
didate. Th further understanding was
that Mr. Canning, in return for. withdraw
ing from th field and supporting Captain
Cousins, was to have one ot the deputyahlps
during th two terms.
Ed Canning served as city marshal xrom
1893 to 1896 end from 1896 to 1897 as city
marshal and chief ot police, th two offices
being consolidated by an act of the legis
lature. In 1(95.

Hosaack Defense Outlined.
WINTERSET, la., Feb. 19. (Special.)
The critical point In the Hossack case has
been reached. The state this morning an
nounced that It would rest, and the fore
noon has been devoted to witnesses for the
defense. The defense had twenty-tro wit- j
sunpoenaed mia morning, an
whom, outside of members ot the Hossack
family, are physicians. The whole case,
therefore, rests upon the question of
whether or not Mrs. Hossack had time to
wash the blood off her hands, hide the ax
and get the room In shapx for the calling
of the children, or whether, as she claimed,
she awakened the children as aoon as she
heard the noise In the house and knew that
her husband waa wounded.

Ingmen who expect to occupy them

CHICAGO, Feb. 1. (Sreclal Telegram.)
Governor Cummins will be a candidate
for the nomination fir the vice presidency
before the crxt national republican conven
tion. From facts which came to light to
day from the most authentic sources In
low a this has been de,ermlned and ths
Iowa delegation will fight to s finish for th
governor. It is also believed that the Ne
braska delegation will support his candi
dacy, as three years ago It stood resdy to
Indorse him tf his name had been brought
The situation has been cleared by the
assertion of a prominent man that Secre
tary of the Treasury Shaw will net be a
candidate, as reported a few weeks ago,
and therefore Governor Cummlna will have
a clear field In bis state. This man de-
claret that he has confidential but positive
knowledge on this point.
While It is known that Governor Cum
mins is not a candidate lj the sense ot
seeking the nomination, tbe authority al
ready quoted says it Is certain he would
npt refuse the honor. The governor'
friends believe he would be a most sultabl
running mate for President Roosevelt, who.
It is conceded In Iowa, will head the ticket.
The man referred to declares he has posi
tive assurances that Mr. Roosevelt has
not expressed any preference as to his
running mate, and this adds to the belief
that the governor has more than an even
chance of securing the honor.
It Is pointed out by the tatter's friend
that geographical requirements will bring
the vice presidential nomination is tbe
wctt, where the governor Is popular.
