"Knife, knife, wIio'b got the butch

substanco of a icry Interesting little
song which the Attorney General's
Department Is singing tlieao days.
And thereto a very Interesting little
tale Is attached, tho significance of
which may be very well Judged when
It Is heard.
Lum Shcong, n humble Chinaman
who washed dishes, cleaned pots and
pans, and did other such menial Jobs
nut at the Monna Hotel, found, to his
discomfort, somo tlnio nco that he
and Klmura, a Japanese omplpycd In
similar service at the beach hostelry,
lould not exactly agree on matters
of general kitchen Import.
Taunts followed, words were ex
changed, and, finally, when Klmura
decided that he could no longer stand

Straight Ticket Talk

"I have said before and I repeat now, that I am a
straight-ticket man. I always was and I hope that I al
ways will be. I have no sympathy with the split-ticket
crowd; neither have I any sympathy for those who would
have this Territory turned over for government to a com
mission. I would consider myself a traiter to the country
if I had any sympathy for those who advocate snch a sys
tem. "I hope for the success of the ticket. Even if that
ticket is not filled with angel 3 1 believe in the support of the
ticket from top to bottom and let the split-ticketers go else
where." A. 0. H. Robertson.

County Convention. Will
Be Held Saturday
Although It has been generally un
derstood that the Republican County
Convention had been postponed from
next Saturday until the following
Tuesday, Secretary Buffandeau of
the County Committee today made
the official statement that in spile
of the fact that Saturday will be He-

on that date, and that whoever gave
out the other date ' was absolutely
mistaken. This will cause the poll

A movoment Is on foot among tho

will be accomplished.'
"It Is really too early to say much
about this thing," said 'one ot the

the matter this afternoon. "There are
a number of us who are Interested In
forming a selling organization like
that of tho Sugar Factors' Associa

plain that there are many advantages
to be gained by bucIi an organization;
Wo can systematize tho selling, aud
the advertising ot our goods, and will
be able to standardize the grades as
well as derive many other benefits
