all the ments and they were few they could gather up which simply amounts to a compliment Of about four votes in the congressional convention The Hull victory in Madison county is conceded by even the Bevington supporters to be full and complete in detail They had absolute control of the convention and did not lose a point in the whole con- test It is one of the greatest victories ever won in Madison county and only indicates the popularity of Captain Hull in this agricultural county The people here appreciate his efficient services in congress and that is why they overwhelmingly captured in sight for him at the primaries and convention The talk of railroad money and all that indulged in by the mugwump Des Moines News and in Dr Bevington's interview with a Leader reporter is laughed at

As it now stands Jim will get 50 per no matter what the outcome of the contest may be So far as Sharkey is concerned the club will look out for his financial interests If he should put up a better than Corbett tie will be entitled to a In other words the decision will be on the merits of the contest Sharkey will not be entitled to a draw if Corbett fails to knock him out The decision will be left then entirely to the referee Of course if Corbett is knocked out Sharkey will be to a decision The only way he can obtain a to make equally as good a fight as his opponent The date of the fight
