THE Democratic primaries Saturday showed several things. One in particular
that the "ring" leaders will probably take advantage of is the proof that
the herder of voters has seen his best day Saturday's prfmaries demon
strated that voters cannot be herded as of old- Even-the precincts that used to
pile up all sorts of majority for the favorite candidates of the men in power in
"the good old days before the poll tax" as some of the politicians are wont to re
markthis vear barely gave majorities for "ring" favorites. One of the surprises
of the voting was the fact that Alderete's own home precinct went against the
ring ticket for Hall. Ike's "strength" is nothing like it used to be, in thedays
when a poll tax receipt was unnecessary for a voter. With a candidate anything
like as strong or as popular as either Hall or Edwards had to face in the primaries,
Aldcrete would not have pulled through. The days and power of the man who
toasts of the votes he carries in his pocket seem to be waning.
Hall's defeat in the primaries was not any more attributable to his unpopu
larity than to the popularity of Edwards; neither was it because the people had
more confidence in the ability, honesty or integrity of the other man. Hall's
defeat was due solely ana surely to the sentiment of the people against some of
the acts of Hall's deputies and the weakness displayed byfche sheriff m some
ot his appointments.
After the publication of, the sworn evidence of one of the sheriff's deputies m
behalf of a man once convicted in El Paso of murder, many of the people of El
Paso did not care to cast their vote in approval of the sheriff who had retained
this deputy in office as one of his chief lieutenants; then many people favorable
o Hall decided at the last minute to cast their votes against him when they saw
the personnel of some of his special deputies at the polls on Saturday. The good
people of El Paso do not care to see men like Tom Powers serving as "peace offi
cers" at election polls or any place else. Sheriff Hall can therefore attribute his
defeat to the men around him rather than to any personal unpopularity or lack
of confidence of the people in his honesty and integrity. The sheriff meant well
enough, but he was unfortunate in some of his selections of friends and lieutenants.
The people only hope in choosing another man-for the office that they will not
have occasion to find the same fault with him two years hence.
Douglas couldn't ask for anything better. Three straight games from El Paso

probably it was the heat of Saturday's .political battle that brought on the ,
electrical storm Saturday night; it was the most brilliant that El Paso has seen
in years. -.
The Pride Of

show in November. The exhibits will be judged strictly on tneir menus wiu

Theonly test will be the ability of the animals to produce first quality beef in
abundance. The Sons and Daughters of the Revolution will receive no more recog
nition than the latest arrival in the tramps' steerage- It will be strictly a contest
of merit, and many cases are on record where plebeian cattle have shown up better
than the cattle of the aristocracy with pedigrees as long as a moving picture film.
There will literally be nothing in a name.
There is a good deal of human interest in this little cattle show, item, for the
pedigree of many humans is open to the same sort of query. "Blue blood" too

To Relieve Money Market

individual banks upon deposit of proper security or by organizations of "JO or more
national banks, having a combined capitalization of $5,000,000 or more.
The secretary believes that the plan of currenncy associations to issue emer

associations should not be delayed until the emergency arises, but should take
place new while the financial atmosphere is clear. There is no immediate likelihood
of immediate revision of the law, and the banks may as well take advantage of it.

It -was 4 oclock in the afternoon when
we all gathered on the piazza of the
major's bungalow a few miles from
Bombay. With the exception of our
host none of us had ever seen any of
the tricks of the real Indian fakirs, so
we were naturally quie excited.
Cap'tain Goring, a young officer, who
had only been a few monhts in India,
laughed at the idea of any of these men j
possessing occult powers, wnne jermyn,

scientist, played with a small kodak

cause of the natives dislike of photog
raphy. On the lavn outside stood two shabby
men in the dazzling sunshine. These
two were famous magicians invited by
the major to convert the doubting Gor
ing. Their preparations weer very simple,
and their apparatus consisted merely
of a small basket and a little bundle of
clothes. Upon a signal from the ma
jor one of the magicians, a gray haired
old indian, put his head into the basket
and drew forth a large cobra whose
forked tongue played In the sunlight.
The other magician whistled softly and
the cobra began to say ay gently in time
with the tune. At the same time we
heard the clicking of Jermyn's camera.
The music grew wilder and little by
litle the dancing cobra began to be
transformed into a woman who contin
ued dancing as had done the snake.
I remember Jermyn afterwards com
pared his sensations to a chloroform
hallucination, "which seems to indicate
that he at least kept his head clear. As
for myself, I remember only dimly hear
ing the click of the camera as the trans
formation took place.
Suddenly the music stopped and the
girl stood in front of us draped only
in a black veil. She dropped the veil
and we saw her face and shuddered.
Her dark eyes scanned our faces and
fastened on Goring. Her beauty was
unearthly but more fascinating than

the estimation of the ruling classes who

That such a man has been able to

The Xon-Conformist minister, mind
ful of the djing man's request, gava
notice under the newly enacted Os
borne-Morgan burial act, which gava
Noe-Conformists the right to bury their
dejid under the exercise of their own
ministrations, that the rector's services
would not be required. The rector was
furious, and although under the new
law he could not forbid the burial in
the churchyard he claimed the right
to decide -where the body should be
buried. He ordered the sexton to close
up the grave and open another in a
desolate corner of the churchyard
which had been set aside for the in
terment of suicides.

He found that the churchyard had
been given to the church by the com
munity, and that it was enclosed by a
stone wall erected at he cost of the
parishoners, and that it undoubtedly
was parish property.
The young- solicitor advised the vil
lagers to assemble in force at the en
trance of the churchj'ard and demand
aomarance as a right. "And then," said
he, "should the vicar refuse to open the
gates, then break down the wall which,
your subscriptions have built, force
your way into the churchyard which
you own, reopen the grave, and bury
the old man by his daughter." This
heroic advice appealed to the Infuriated

This case attracted great attention in

He became secretary of the Anti-Tithe
league, an organization formed to resist
the enforced payment of tithes to the
clergy of the Established church. A

organization wa his first -spciking
campaign. He was elected to the first
county council chosen in Carnarvon
shire, and was known as the youngest
alderman in the kingdom. In 1S90,
when he was 27 years old, he was elect

Carnarvon Boroughs, which seat he has
held for 20 years. He has been elected
six times, and each time by an increased
