NEEDS flO ASSISTANT. Captain C. II. Titus May Run His Of flee Without Ono. It Is regarded as probable by some who are familiar with the situation that Capt. C. H. Titus -will not appoint any deputy when he takes the office of com missioner of elections, at least not until January 3. The registration for this year Is practically over with, and the appointment of an assistant would be an unnecessary luxury. Capt. Titua refuses to either confirm or deny the rumor. He says: "I haven't got a thing to say about it until I get Into the office and have time to lock around and see what work there is to be done. If I find that I can save the dear people some money by not appointing any deputy, I shall probably not appoint one. "It Is my opinion, however, that the new registration law Is going to add very materially to the work of the elec tion commissioner's office, instead of making that job a sinecure, as some have stated. Under the old law, all that was necessary to do was to sit there in the office and writes names. That's not hard work, of course. Every body, knew exactly what they had to do; they knew that after January 1, they would have to come in and regis ter again, and that if they didn't come in and register they could not vote. "But this new law is complicated, and It will take people a long time to under stand it. I foresee that there is going to be a lot of difference In the way that office will have to be run. People will be constantly calling up to find out whether or not they are registered. A man will forget whether he has voted; he will forget whether he has registered since he moved or before; he will for get whether he has ever registered at all under the new law. Consequently, everybody will be calling up by tele phone to find out where they stand. This is what the new law will do to the office of commissioner of elections. "At the same time, the law will, I believe, be a source of political corrup tion In the hands of those who desire to manipulate elections. There is nothing in the world to prevent a registration, once on the books, being kept alive for an indefinite period, provided the name is that of some person who is'not gen erally known. The checkers represent ing the political parties who are em ployed at the polls can not be expected to know everybody. If a man comes there and gives the name of somebody who is on the tiooks. but who has moved away, the judges can not pre vent the casting of the illegal ballot. In this way a great deal of repeating is possible." T. S. Williams, the present commis sioner. Is of the same opinion as Capt. Titus about the difficulties in the way of the new primary law. Capt. Titus announces positively that he will keep up the free employment ; feature of the commissioner's office. This is a side line which is optional with the commissioner. Capt. Titus says it will not involve much work so long as times continue as good as they are now. Excursion to Kansas City. Santa I-V. Sunday, April 2. Round trip $1.23.

Saw Approaching Tornado and Sought Safety in Engine. The El Dorado Republican, in its write-up of the tornado which visited that place Monday night, gives the fol lowing account of the damage done to the Missouri Pacific roundhouse: "The storm had not lost any of its fury when it reached the Missouri Pa cific roundhouse northeast of town. When the men saw the storm approach ing all, with the exception of the clerk, who sought safety in the fire box of a dead engine, ran into the roundhouse and took refuge in pits under the en gine. A large portion of the roof was torn from the house. Other damage was done in the demolishing of smoke stacks, etc., but no one was hurt. KAISER AT TANGIER. City Was Gayly Decorated in Honor of His Arrival. Tangier, March 31. The Hamburg American line steamer Hamburg with the German emperor on board arrived here , today from Lisbon. The em peror was awaited at the landing by the representatives of the sultan, tha diplomatic corps and a big crowd of people. A heavy sea was running when the Hamburg anchored and the emperor sent his grand chamberlain ashore to apologize for the fact that he must delay landing owing to the rough weather and saying that he probably would land later. This an nouncement caused the greatest dis appointment among the people ashore who had collected to welcome his majesty. The usual salutes were exchanged between the escorting German cruiser Prinz Friedrich Karl and the land batteries and the French warships Linois and Du Chala now in these wa ters. The town presents a most pictur esque spectacle. Flowers, rich Moor ish embroideries, fine rugs and bril liant eastern costumes everywhere make up a scene heretofore unknown In Tangier.
