Mexico. Mo.. July 6. Secretary of State
S. B. Cook, writing to the Intelligencer of
this city, under date of July 3, says In ref

per County politics:
"In your Tuesday's issue you fall into the
(common newspaper error of crediting W. H.
.Phelps with 'heading the Jasper County

west Missouri. It has three legislative dis
trJcts. with a total of twenty delegates In
ithe Democratic State Convention. The East

.and the other two, Joplln and Webb City,

"In the conventions which were held

Three A'onilnatlns Methods.
The politicians have been quirk to see
that much depends upon the form In which
nominations are made. Three methods are
proposed. The so-called blanket method,
by which the delegates will vcte for threa
candidates at once: the three receiving the
highest majority being declared the nom
inees; nominations singly, whereby on each
roll call each delegate will have but one
vote, and a modification of the two meth
ods, whereby the delegates wai vote for
three candidates at a time, but making
enly one nomination.
Xo candidate to-day professed to be In
favor of the blanket method. Nne of them
thinks that he has a majority of the dele
gates, and. falling a combination with
other candidates, he can see no advantage
In making the three nominatJrns at once.
Most of the candidates say that they are
In favor of making the nominations one at
a time- The only objection which has Jwen
raised to this Is that some of the counties
have given Instructions frr three men. This
would necessitate a fract'onal voting which
would be unusual. Whether the combina
tion scheme will develop Into a compro
mise remains to be seen. It Is urged that
the combination method will enable the
counties which have been Instructed for
three candidates to cast full votes without
Some of the candidates announce that
while they are oppesid to the blanket
method generally they would not refuse its
advantages If they were sure of the neces
sary number of votes to nominate by use of
it. Others are opposed to It In any event,
among them being Judge Hughes, Judge
Silver. Judge Waller and Judge Alexander

to annex the Creek Xatlon to Oklahoma.
The Creek Council will be asked to avail

tribes shall signify their desire they may
by proclamation of the President be at

At any rate, the Kaiser had this oppor

It Is unncce-viry to recall what the

American trusts as the greatest peril con

The article harp throughout upon the
prolmbllltles of misfortune overtaking the
"Napoleon of finance." and says that,
guided by the Imagination, his trusts appear
to be excellent, but that the first moment

The Xeue Frcle Prcsse concludes by say
ing: "Could a thought reader have penetrated
the secret recesses of the minds of Em

contrasts might he not have discovered.
In Emperor William's mind, perhaps, a
yearning for fame and splendor; In that of
Mr. Morgan the hope of new trusts and
