Louis Hamilton Wilcox - of Grfswold. Cass
county; waa yesterday named by tha dem
ocrats of the Ninth district as their can
didate for congress. The nominee la prea
ldent of the Bank of Grlswold and one
of the largest cattle raisers in southwest
ern Iowa. He Is known as a sound money
democrat and Is said to be In accord with
Judge Parker'a views on the money Ques
tion. Th convention waa presided over ty
Judge Exra Wlllard of Atlantic, who waa
named aa temporary chairman by S. B.
Morrlsey, chairman of the state democratic
central . committee and also chairman of
the congressional committee, when he
called' the gathering to order,' one fipur
after the appointed time. B. W. Gregory
of Shelby county was named aa temporary
secretary. The temporary organization was
later made permanent.
When Judge Wl'lard assumed the gavel
there were only nineteen delegates present.
Adair county, with Its seven votes, was
not represented, so -in place of there being
eighty-two votes In the Convention therw
were only seventy-five. Judgo Wlllard re
frained from making any speech and the
convention got down to business by .naming
the following committees:
"Credentials L. L. Delano, Cnss cotinty;
N. D. Hamlin. Audubon; C. F. Hflland,
Guthrie; W. J. Burke. Harrison: J. R. Ora
ham. Mills; William Boll, Montgomery;

Permununt Orffonliatlon J. C. Bryant.
Hamlin. Auduron; r. nei-
(and, Guthrie; W. H. Remington, Harrl- ,
nrie; W. C. Campbell, Shelby
.'-When It came to the appointment of. a
committee on resolutions, Roscoe Barton
Of Pottawattamie suggested that a com
mittee b dispensed with and that the 'con
vention adopt as its platform the platform
adopted by. the national convention in St.
Louis. His suggestion met with unanimous
favor. -' ; 1 '
.There was a tedious delay before the
committee on credentials reported. ' It de
veloped there was a contest In , the repre
sentation from Guthrie county, C. F. Hel
land was the only duly elected, delegate
from that county present,' but L. N. Nea
aelroad of Gjithrle Center was .there with
six proxies. -Now, It happened that at the
county convention In Gdthrle, when the
deiea-ates to the congressional convention
were selected, .a resolution waa adopted pro
hibiting any proxies, Neeselroad contended
that the action of tha county convention
waa undemocratic 'and illegal and should
not be recognised by the congressional con
ventton,' and that h ahould be permitted
to vote hla alx proxies. The credentials
committee, however, deolded otherwise,' and
Delegate C F. Heiland had the honor of
castlnar tha full- aeven - votes; of Guthrie
county all by. htrhsel.., ;In itg report the
committee on credentials recommended
that all proxies be . allowed "except from
such counties wher the oounty convention
had ruled otherwise. The report of the
commute waa adopted and Mr. - Neasei-
road was compelled to take a seat among
the spectators. .
' Then cam the work of naming a candi
date to make' the race against . Congress
man Walter Ii Smith. ' Hamilton Wilcox
waa placed .In nomination by Charles F.
Chase of Atlantic editor of the Atlantic
Democrat. Mr. Wilcox, tha Caas county
editor aaid, had learhed hla democracy
when a youth In New . Xork under Samuel
J;: Tllden, and had - faithfully adhered to
itg principles ver plncei The name of. 8.

nominated two years ago and defeated by
Judge Smith, waa brought before the con
vention by Roscoe Barton of the Pottawat

Montgomery, 6; Pottawattamie, 19. Total So.
A committee consisting oi ur. nmni"
Roscoe Barton and Frank Tamlsea was
sent to escort the nominee before the con.
ventlon. Mr. -Wilcox said he ought to ba
thankful. for a nomination . for congress In
the Ninth district, seeing that two years
ago (ha republicans had a majority of 7,000.
However, he said he appreciated tn nonor
and as the party had placed the banner in
his hands he would carry It as high aa he
could, although he could not carry It alone
and would want every democrat In the
nine counties to assist htm. Ha thought
that by organisation the republican major
ity ot 7,000 could be lowered to 2.0O0, which
It waa in 1891 .'
The congressional committee waa reor
ganised aa follows '..Cass; L. L Delano, At
lantic; Audubon, N. D. Hamlin, Hamlin;
Guthrie, J. W. Morris, Panora; Harrison,
W, J: Burke,' Missouri Valley; Mills, Paul
Flammant, MLneola; Montgomery, William
Boll, Red Oak; Pottawattamie, W. H.

convention and selected L. I Delano as
chairman, who will appoint the secretary. -

Bertha was brought .over from. Omaha
yesterday morning, tha1 authorities there
deciding ' that she rightfully belonged on
this side of the river. County Attorney
Klllpack protested "against her being re
ceived from the Omaha offtoere, but Attor
ney A. T. FUoklnger of the Insanity board
took the position that the board had no
alternative but to receive the young woman
and examine Into her case, aa It had done
on several prevloua occasions. Bertha was
born, and raised In Council Bluffs and Is
regarded purely aa a local product, al
though the city has no reason to be proud
When the board yesterday morning de
cided to adjudge her Insane and send her
back to the state asylum at Clarlnda, Ber

alternating with hysterical spells of laugh
ing. Before, being taken to St. Bernard's
hospital Bertha asserted she would appeal
from the finding of the board, as she was
perfectly sane, shrf said,, and Jf, only given
another opportunity would reform.
While Freeman Reed,' clerk of the dis
trict court, and secretary. of the insanity
board, was making out Tier commitment.
Bertha sidled up - to him and before Mr.
Reed was aware of it, she had succeeded
In purloining his watch and chain. She

The case involves a question of liability
on the part of the' city 'for the accident
and the Injury of the plaintiff who was a

engaged by both sides andr. the case Is be
ing bitterly fought. r-.-
Ope of the attractions on July 4,. 1903, was

gaged by th people with -whom she trav
eled to do vaudeville work,;, but agreed' to

DES MOINES, Sept. 1. (Special.) A
meeting of tha Joint board of mine oper
ators and coal miners In district No. 13 Is
being held In this city for the purpose of
considering some of tha .recent .labor
troubles In tha mine district. The seal of
wages waa agreed to for the entire district
last winter and it will continue two years.
In case of disagreements the board will
decide all matters. There are disagree
ments at three points In th district. At
the Numma mine, near. Oskalooaa, the
miners were dlswatlsfled over the wages
and conditions and claim that In some
slight particulars the operators ihav not
lived up to the, agreements. They all quit
In a body. No strike waa ordered' and the
local miners' organisation disclaims any
responsibility,, but. the. men .quit aa n
dlvlduals. The mine was shut down. At
Mendota, Mo., there waa a misunderstand
ing as to the screens and It waa submitted
to arbitration, but th operaSprs declar
the mlnera have not acqulerced. At Colfax
600 miners stopped work In mine at Seeyers
and Andersonvllle. Since the purchase of
the Jasper County Coal railroad by th
Colfax Northern an arrangement haa been
made by which the miners are required to
pay for transportation to the mines. Th
coal road formerly carried the -men, free
and they insist that this waa part ot the
agreement they entered Into. Th road was
owned by the persons who owned th coal
mines and runs from Colfax out to the
mines. . This matter ta subject to arbitra
tion here. The conference Is not yet con
Bank Interest to Iovra.
The state treasuier today figured up the
Interest due the state of Iowa from Des
Moines banks for the month of August and j
found that It amounted to 82,194.21. This Is ,
less than the previous month. The balance
In Des Moines banks to the credit of the
state was II, 210,000 for the month. It Is
expected the balance will steadily decrease
until about the middle of October, when It
tvHI begin to Increase again. The new law
requiring banks to pay the state Interest on
balances held will yield the state about
828,000 a yesr. ' .
Strikers as Strike Breakers.
Managers of local employment agencies
who have been active In furnishing men to
bo aent to Kansas City, Omaha and Chi
cago for the packing house work declare
that recently they have had many appli
cants from members of the union who Ac
cept employment as breakers of the strike.
In many cases they show their cards and
state plainly thtt they are union men, but
that they must have work and desire to be
sent to some place other than where they
have previously, worked and to go under
assumed names. In this way the employ
ment agencies say they have secured a
large number of persons for tha packing
hcuses who ara skilled workmen. ,

Demurrage on State Coal.
Attorney -General' Mullan haa given th
Btate Board of Control an opinion in which
ha hold that the railroads cannot collect
demurrage charges on coal and other ship,
ments to state Institutions by aelsure of
the material shipped, aa U done In ilia case
of private property. Other methods of col
lectlng must-be ised,. But he points out
that the only question In regard to de
murrage charges, the legality ' of which
have long been upheld, by the courts. Is
th reasonableness of the charge and the
method ot applying.
No Voting Machines.
The litigation over the purchase of vot
ings machines by thia county will result
In failure to make us of the voting ma
chines at th coming election unless a com
promise Is reached. Injunction and other
processes wer secured and the voting ma
chine company Is so tied up that It will
,do nothing' toward delivering the ma
chines. ' This Is regarded as certain to end
In nondelivery In time to fulfill the con
tract and then the county will refuse to
purchase machine at all. Fifty machines
had been purchased.' but the makera of
rival machines declared those purchased
were not good.
