UNDER THE NEW LAW.
Attsrxy ;eeral Ht Stiller the
OpiBioa That Primaries Shasta Be
Held I'tider the Australia Ballet
Speak'mg of the action of the state cen
tral committees of the two parties in de
claring that the Australian ballot law ap
plies to town meetings, Attorney General
Hnnt said Tuesday that he bad not
changed his views in regard to the matter.
He further said:
' It has been my contention all along
that the nominations and the printing of
the tickets at town meetmss should be
doDe under the provisinnsof the Australian
ballot law. My position was that the law
did not apply to the conducting of the
town meeticg; that the manner of conduct
ing the town meeting was provided for bv
the towEBhip organization law, which still
remains jn full force, and which does not
provide the machinery seemingly required
fi r an election under the Australian bal
lot law. I have held, however, that a
town meeting would probablv be valid
conducted in either waj ; in other words,
that the validity of the result would not
deperd on the manner in which the
meeting was conducted. I regard it all
important that contention should be
avoided, that local authorities should
agree on the manner in which tbe meet
ing is to be conducted, and that the
agreement should be understood and ac
quiesced in. If, therefore, the meeting)
are conducted in accordarce with tbe
recommendations of the two state central
committees, which as I understood con
cur in tbe conclusion that tbe Austral
ian ba'lot law should be observed, I do
not think tbe validity of the result would
be affected thereby. It wou'd at most be
irregular but not void."

Catarrh ICan't be Cored
with local applications, as they cannot
reach tbe seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you haye to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh, bend for testimonials free.

The Anticipated Kuu pilon of K v r

A reporter of tbe Q'lincj Journal visited
the harbor of that city a day or two ago
aud puts some interesting packet news in
tbe following unique shape:
In rep'7 to irqniry tbe proud G m C.ty
Yes, I am getting tired lying here
with my sides rubbing up against the
other boats. Tbe Diamond Jo offliiam
will open tbe season one week from Tues
day aud if tbe weather is favorable it is
probable that on that day 1 will leave
this poky harbor, as I am to be Eent out
'They're eoiog to wash and scrub me
h!s week and Mr. Pannoyer will piiat
my cabin aad otherwise beautify my ex terior.
I am in pretty good shape inter
nally and do not need mny repair?.
There was so little boating last season
that I hardly ha i a chance to get out o
"IPS, I think river tr&mc will be in a
much better condition this year than last.
I will run in the fhort trade, from St
Louis to Keokuk. If everything works
as I think it will I will puff smoke from
my stacks and blow my whiitle in about
The reporter then stepped to the deck
of the Sidney, 1; ing alongside of the Gem
"Hello," gn fly replied the veteran of
the waves. "I've got to lie here iwo or
three weeks after tbe Osm over there gets
to frolicking up and down the stream
I am in fairly good condi.ion, but it will
take longer to get me ready for the trade
than it will the Gem. I exoect toco
into the trade about tbe middle of next
month. My first trip will probably be as
far north as Rock Island. Then as tbe
water gets higher I will be able to work
further up, until finally 1 am able to re
sume my old run from St. to St."

Mr. R.S.McCullough's Story He was
Discouraged Without Hope The
Result of His Treatment With Scott
"I was in a very serious condition when
I visited tbe Institute,'' said Mr. Robert
S. McCullough. who is employed with the
Davenport Mills Co. "My trouble was
catarrh and bas existed for over four
years. At first my head, nose, ears and
throat became all stopped so I could
hardly breathe or swallow. My appetite
failed, food distressed my stomach and
gave me no s'rengtb. I lost flesh rapidly.
I was not able to sleep half the time, and
was more tired and miserable when I
would get up than before 1 went to bed. I
had aconstant discharge of yellow, stringy,
mucous from my nose and throat. My
throat became sore and voice husky, and
roaring and buzzing noises in my ears,
with severe pains in my chest and sweat
ing at night. After the second treat
ment I found more benefit than I had by
three previous years doctoring in the city
and I now feel like a new man " Mr. Mc
Cullough bas lived in the city for 20
years and worked for the Davenport
Mills company for nine years, and will
gladly talk with anyone similarly
