The political situation in theTer
ritory the coming electionhangs in
the balance. Neither party, so
far as we are able to judge, has
a reasonable right to claim a sure
thing this fall. The large flood

ing into the Territory for the past
'eighteen months, can easily turn
the tide either way. This being
the case, the men who are so
anxious to become servants of the
(at present) dear people, had bet
ter lay their phlr.s accordingly. :

Pounds of Wool is the Annuai Out-

Clayton has handled something
over one million pounds of wool
during this season. There has
been shipped from this place nine

stored in the wool house. The
wool crop is bringing on an aver

not afford to take a backward step
in the matter. The ",000 people
are entitled to protection. "Hav

enough to manage her own af
