ATTACKS SHERIFF FROMTHE REAR COWARDLY ATTACK MADE ON SHERIFF ROWLAND BY PRISONER IN BARN Des Moines, July Gov. W. L. Harding, nominee of the re- publican party for the office of gov- ernor of Iowa, was among the first to arrive in Des Moines yesterday pre- liminary to the opening of the repub- ;ican state convention, and opened his headquarters in parlors G and H at the Savery hotel.
