H. H. Van Benthuysen and Floyd Stotts ~ Marion County, Iowa

The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, September 20, 1906

The following is clipped from the Knoxville Journal's report of the Marion
County Democratic Convention:

H.H. VAN BENTHUYSEN, of Tracy, and FLOYD STOTTS, of Dallas, were aspirants
for the nomination as County Superintendent. The contest between them was
close and the Tracy man seemed to get the better of it because he had an
unpronounceable name. The different precincts called him "Methusalem,"
Jerusalem," etc., and one made it "Enthoosem."

The ballot resulted as follows:

STOTTS -- 71
VAN BENTHUYSEN -- 79.
