when tho fall conventions of the threo big
political parses Democratic, Republican
and Progressive assembled. Tho Demo
crats hold their sessions hero, tho a. O.
P. forces met In Kalamazoo, while tho
Bull Moosers hold forth at Bay City.
Kach party was to mako Its nomina
tions for the oITIccb of Secretary of State,
Auditor Gcnoral, Attorney General, Stato
Treasurer and Stato Land Commissioner,
In addition to selecting new Stato central
committeemen and drafting .platforms.
Interest centered In tho Democratic con
ventions, whero tho long standing feud
botweon the "Wilson-Democrats" and tho
Wood-Shields faction threatened trouble.
State Chairman Shields declared early to
day that the "organisation" wing would
be In complete control, although tho "Pro
gressives" promised to make a last-ditch
fight for tho seating of their contesting
delegation from Wayno (Detroit), Cal
houn and Delta Counties. Success In this
fight would glvo them control of tho
convention and subsequent control of tho
party organization In Michigan.
There was every Indication that the
Republican gathering In Kalamazoo
would bo serene and peaceful. Tho one
chanco of a serious clash apparently
rested In tho possibility that Chase S.
Osborn, tho nominee for Governor, and
tho party leaders might not agreo on
platform planks. Osborn several months
ngo went on record as favoring the
lecall of Judicial decisions, but when
this Issuu threatened to stir up internal

Their Votes Causing a Flurry Among
Politicians as to Intent.
WILMINGTON. Del., Sept. 30. Did the
Democrats who voted at the Republican
primaries and assisted In nominating the
legislative candidates In a number of
districts Intend to vote fo thorn In tho
election, or was there a tifck In It? This
is the question which is now agitating
some of the Republicans, and they have
not found an answer. It is known that
In this city a large number of Demo
crats either voted or attempted to vote
at the primaries In certain districts. In
one district tho vote of ono Democrat
was challenged, and there came near be
In some of the country districts It Is
alleged the same thing occurred and some
deJlnro that the "wet" people went be
hind tho Democrats and assisted In mak
ing tho nominations. Some Republicans
are Inclined to think the thing was a
trick, but others believe the Democrats
are tired of their own party on account
of the hard times and intend to vote the
Republican ticket. For that reason they
took part In the Republican primaries.
Under tho primary election laws of this
State a nun who registers within a cer
tain time hng a right to vote at the pri
maries which ho chooses, but cannot vote
ut more than one primary. This year
the Democrats had comparatively few
contests for county offices and for mem
bers of the Legislature, nnd It Is this
which causes the doubt.

passed by the House,
It lias been proposed to reduce tho tax
of 12 a thousand on bank capital nnd

would bo unwise to place a heavy bur
den on bank capital at this time because
of disturbed financial conditions duo to

Advocates of this change- would revise
the gasoline clause nnd place a tax on
automobiles based on horsepower Instead
of tho levy of two cents a gallon on gas
oline. They say this would make up tho
loss of revenue duo to tho cut in tho
The levy on accident lnsuranco imposed
by the House also may bo eliminated and

House bill on tho ground that It will
give an advantage to tho California

per cent, of saccharine matter."
Tho tax on such sweet wines Is 20 cents
a, gallon, while the tax on other domestic
wines Is only 12 cents a gallon. Tho
Ohio producers say they use sugar In
manufacturing their wines, whllo tho
California producers rely upon fortifica
