The work of ths convention was done In a businesslike manner, and two hours suf ficed to. complete it. All speechmaklng was dispensed with, as many ot the delegates from the country preclncta were anxious to gd home on the early afternoon trains. Despite the businesslike manner In which It was conducted, the convention was a most enthusiastic and harmonious gather ing. Every precinct was represented by Its full quota of delegates, and as all of the delegations were early on the ground, there was no delay In getting the conven tion started. The rumored opposition to H. V. Battey of Avoca for the nomination for clerk of the district court did not materialise, and he was nominated by acclamation, as was D. F. Dryden of Hardin township for county supervisor. With the exception of that for county auditor, which required two ballots. one ballot sufficed to settle the other nom inations. When County Chairman G. S. ' Wright called the convention to order at 11 o'clock the south courtroom was packed with an Interested and expectant crowd, the con tests over some of the nominations having excited, mora than the usual Interest. Mr. Wright named II. J, Chambers of this city aa temporary chairman. James Lowry was named aa temporary secretary, - - Chairman Chambers, on Assuming the gavel, stated that he was under positive in strut Hons not to make any speech, anil that be would abide by the instructions, ns he knew the convention waa anxious to get down to business. He took occasion, how ever, to say that he knew that the- con vention would be harmonious and that whatever the ticket might be. it would be successful next fall. Dispensing with the usual committee on permanent organization, the temporary or ganisation was declared permanent on mo tion of R. V. Innes of the Third ward. Battey by Acclamation. Before the committees retired Colonel C O. Saunders suggested that as there waa twenty minutes before the time for ad journing for dinner, and aa he understood that there was but one candidate for the nomination for clerk of the district court, tha convention expedite matters by nomi nating H. V. Battey of Avoca by acclama tion. The suggestion met with Instant fa vor at the hands of the convention, and Mr. Battey was nominated. The ball hav ing thus been aet rolling. Supervisor D. F. Dryden waa then renominated by acclama tion, although In the regular order of things the nominations for members of the county board were the last on the list. This much disposed of, the convention adjourned for dinner. New Central Committee. The first business taken up on reconven ing, at 1:30 o'clock, was the naming of the tounty central committee. .

Can ning It waa decided that all ballots be formal. Twe Ballots for Auditor. For the nomination for county auditor the first ballot gave W. C. Cheyne. 85 votes; W. M. Frederick, 71Vs. and W. A.

Residents of the western part of the city who attended the meeting last night called by the West End Improvement club to dis cuss the question of paving Broadway were disappointed In that Mayor Macrae find other city officials failed to attend as prom ised. The only representatives of the city present were City Solicitor. Snyder and Al dermen Clippen and McMlllen of the Sixth and Fifth wards, respectively. City Attorney Snyder gave It as hla opin ion that the most feasible way to improve Broadway was for the council to order It paved In the usual manner; assess so much of the cost of the Improvement against tho abutting property as it would bear and then pay the deficiency out of the Im provement funds, such payments to be ex tended over a term of years not exceeding ten. Mr. Snyder also suggested that In his opinion the abutting property on Broadway between Thirteenth and Twenty-third streets ought to be able to bear the assess ment of the Improvement; the city council should not delay in ordering this portion at least pnved this year. The meeting practically decided that to Improve the thoroughfare by popular sub scription waa not feasible and the consen sus of opinion was that the city council should take tha lead In the matter. , W. H. Kilmer threw a bombshell Into the meeting by stating that In the event of the city council taking any steps toward re paving the street at the expense of the abutting property owners, injunction -proceedings would at once be Instituted In the courts. After several hours' discussion, at the suggestion of former Alderman Boyer the matter was referred to a special committee to be appointed by President Skinner of the West End Improvement club, this commit tee to formulate a plan and submit it at an early date to the city council.

DISCUSSES THE OPEN SHOP QUESTION Congressman Hull Names Delegates Who Are Opposed to Cummins Man for Delegate to the Chicaigo Convention. (From a Staff Correspondent.) DES MOINES, May 12. (Special.)-At the annual meeting of the Iowa State Federa tion of Labor, being held In Marahalltown, Prealdcnt A. L. Vrlck of this city, today presented his report on the operations of the federation during the year. He at tacked the Industrial alliance and declared that he had hoped Iowa would escape A fight on unionism because of the fact that organized labor has a reputation for being conservative and fair in this state, and all progress has been made along conservative lines. In discussing the open shop and other phases of the subject which have come to the front In this state President Vrlck said: The open shop to the nonunion man, in the Intents and purposes of the present Indlvidunl liberty advocate, means the closed shop to the union man, and the final dlHhanrtment of the unions that have ac complished so much In the Interests of tho w Re-earners. The term "open shop," taken logically, would Imply that the union Insists upon -a shop closed to nonunion men. The facts are the union movement welcomes nt nil times the nonunion man to sny and all so- called union shops. Securing employment. however, and benefitting by the conditions secured hv the union, he la expected to per form all of the acts performed by the mem bers of the union In maintaining jvnd ami further improving tho conditions of labor. Should his moral nature be of ao low a standard not to perceive the Injustice of securing benefits to which he Is not willing to contribute an effort of maintaining or Improving, then the union man certalntlv has "a Just ground for complaint, and Is justified in reruslng to work wun mm. Trustees Meet at Ames. Governor Cummins, State Superintendent Rlggs and James Wilson, all members of the Board of Trustees of the Bute college, attended the board meeting of the State college at Ames today. The board meeting Is to lay plans for. continuing building op erations during the year. The report of the state auditor on insur ance will show that the life Insurance com panies received last year from Iowa people a total of $6,409,947.60, and paid In death losses $1,678,366.15, or about 24.6 per cent re? turned. The total value of risks written was about 172,000,000, and the net increase of policies in force was 12,000,000. Kamed His Delegation. Captain J. A. T. Hull of this city today named his delegation to the district conven tion, and it was found that he had named a delegation guaranteed to vote for the Story county candidate for delegate again at the Dallas county candidate, thus disposing of one contest before the convention. The effort to induce Hull to divide the delega tion between the outside candidates failed, and he accepted the situation and decided that he would favor Dr. Hostetter because of his pronounced antagonism to Governor Cummins. Lake Farms Controversy.' ' The lake farmers of Iowa find that .tho new law relating io T sale ot "the lake beds will not afford them nil the relief for which they asked. Attorney General Mullan yes terday rendered an opinion to Governor Cummins for the executive counoll in which he.- held that the process of getting title to - lake beds that have already been drained and are now in the possession of purchasers Is substantially like that for tho preliminary steps of securing an order for drainage and sale, and that these luke bed farmers must begin by securing a petition signed by fifty freeholders and twenty res idents ot the township and then have the drainage declared necessary after a Rear ing. This will make much trouble for some of the persons who are in possession of lake beds. They claim that under the new law the governor was authorized to issue a deed to them at once.
