The Republican County Committee's
plan of club organization in each Assem
bly district is haVing a fair test. The en
rollment of Republican voters as a pre
liminary step toward the formation of an
official club In each district began under
orderly and favorable auspices last Satur
da3 - evening and has since been conducted
in commendable form. The rolls in each
Assembly district will be open this even
ing for Fisuatures. All Republicans who
have not enrolled should sign to-night, be
cause the rolls will be closed for a few
days in order to afford opportunity for
Inspection. The next important step in
the process of organization will be the
election on July 9of club officers. It is
essential to the welfare of the Republican
party and to the cause of good local gov
ernment that the club officers shall be
men of character and intelligence. Round
ers, race track touts, saloon loafers and
railroad hirelings will jump in and en
deavor to gain control of the clubs If the
decent men of the party are not on guard
on the evening of July 9. Every enrolled
Republican will be permitted to vote for
cluh officers on that night. Those who
are not enrolled cannot participate In the
In view of these facts the Importance
of enrollment this evening is obvious.
After the permanent organization is ef
fected enrollment will be resumed and ef
forts will then be made to persuade every
Republican voter in the city to join a club
and use every honorable effort to elect
decent men as delegates to the nomi
The rounders and riff-raff that hang
around grog shops and do the bidding of
degraded bosses will not put up a straight
ticket of delegates to be voted for at the
primary election on August 14, but will
rely on their own cunning and the dull
ness of better citizens to get some of their
agents nominated In each district. The
merchants, worklngmen and property
nwnors In each district can control the sit
uation if they will go to the front at this
time and nominate decent men to serve as
delegate?. No proxies can be used. The
election law docs not permit a delegate
to appoint any one to serve in his place.
The law makes it easy for people who
work for a living and pay taxes to win

While walking in his sleep A. E. Cubitt.
a well-known resident of Livermore. was
nearly killed last nisht by stepping out of
a second story window, falling twenty
feet to the ground.
The unfortunate somnambulist was
found beneath the window unconscious
from his fall, but. strangely enough, suf
fering from no serious external injuries.
Other than cuts and bruises Cubitt es
caped almost miraculously. The fall was*
a sheer drop, with nothing to break ita
force. He had landed In a parden patch
in front of his residence, and it may hava
been that the soft, yielding earth upon
which he struck saved htm from broken
limbs or a fractured skull.
The suffering sleepwalker was soon pro
nounced in no danger, for he regained
his senses speedily, although there was
considerable, nervous shock. Of course.
Cubitt had no idea how the accident oc
curred, as his last recollection was when
he retired early during the evening.
For years Cubitt has been a sleep
walker. In fact, the habit was upon htm
even In his childhood. But In all of his
nocturnal peregrinations he had never
before suffered harm. Fully aware of his
affliction, he had always taken precau
tions against the occurrence of accidents
In hl3 sleepwalking experiences. On this
occasion, however, he nad loft a window
open when he went to bed because of the
heat of the room, and it -was this which
led to his fall.
Cubitt is a professional nurse and much
of his time he is awake all night in at
tendance upon patients. It does not ap
pear that during his sleep In the day tKne
the habit overcomes him. While there is
no apparent permanent Injury to the
young man, the accident will cause him to
double his precautions against its recur
Cubitt enjoys excellent health an<! a
sound physique, but all efforts to break
down the habit have failed.
