survive and both sides are still in
vestigating them. They are T.
Fi Green, capitalist and rancher.
Progressive Republican' and the
, original LaFollette booster in
this section, and Seborn B. Man
ning, a bachelor farmer, 62 years
old, who is an old school Demo
crat without any opinion what
ever on labor union ethics. 'His
health, however, is bad arid pos
sibly, even if not removed by per
emptories, he will be eliminated
on a doctor's certificate before
the trial actually commences.
So far the 'state has had the
wotst of the selections, there "be
" ing four men in the box they
probably will have to challenge.

.who both, incline to the gas the

year's bonnett, T
With the ear

And then keep warm clear

cloudiness Saturday;- rising tem
perature; lowest tonight near the
freeing point; increasing souther
