Because of dissatisfaction with the
primary-election law, not only Hen
nepin county, but in the entire state,
an informal convention to discuss the
system and possible changes, will be
held early in December in McKinley
hall under the auspices of a committee
appointed by the Fourth Ward Kepub
lican club. It is planned to hold an
afternoon and evening session on the
problem and proposed remedies. Im
mediately following the election, invi
tations will be sent out to the newly
elected legislators all over the state
to attend the gathering. It is hoped
that the response will be general and
that something of value will be accom
While a return to the old conven
tion system is not advocated, it is main
tained that a modification of the pres
ent system is necessary and will prove
much better than the present system.
The committee appointed to arrange
for the convention consists of State
Senator J. F. Calhoun, Fred B. Wright,
who will represent the fortieth district
in the house this winter Sherman
Bmith, Samuel Guile and William Ball
This committee will issue the call and
the convention will form its own or
ganization. Low Bates to the West and Southwest.
On the first and third Tuesdays of
each month until March, 1907, inclusive,
the Chicago Great Western railway will
sell one-way colonists tickets at nearly
half-fare to points in Arkansas, Colo

Revenue Fund of State Shows Over
draft of Only $12,500.
The monthly report of State Treas
urer Julius H. Block shows the general
revenue fund of the state to be over
drawn $12,501.50. Tuesday the fund
was overdrawn $62,501.50, but yester
day a payment of $50,000 was made
into the treasury from the state prison,
the money representing collections on
the sal3 of prison twine. The present
deficit in tho general revenue fund is
an annual occurrence, but is now
smaller than it has been for many years.
One year ago the fund was several hun
drew thousand dollars overdrawn.
Wife Murderer's Digestion Out of Order
for a While.
Harry Sussman, self-confessed wife
murderer, was taken suddenly 11 1 last
night and Dr. Hynes, county physician,
was summoned to attend the sick man.
An investigation showed that Sussman
had partaken too freely of dates and the
prisoner was given medical assistance.
Today Sussman is as well as he has been
at any time since his confinement in the
jail, and the jail officials, who had vis
ions of an attempted suicide, are breath
ing more freely.
Forty East Side young men have or
ganized a singing society and propose
to make it to that part of the city
what the larger organizations are to
the West Side. The first rehearsal was
held last Tuesday evening at 2318 Cen
tral avenue, and rehearsals will be held
weekly at that address. The club has
places open for tenors and second
basses, and men with suoh qualifications
will be welcomed. Applications may be
sent to A. Simonson, 2318 Central ave
nue, or to room 401, 620* Nicollet
avenue. The name of the club and oth
er essential facts of the organization
will be settled at a later meeting.
3,800 Yards ofSilks
Ladies' Coats
and Suits
We want the second
floor of this building. We
want the money in the mer
chandise out of it. We have
said so before, but we want
to accomplish this at once.
We do not have an elevator
people will readily walk
down a flight of stairs but
very reluctantly will walk
up. Before you come in this
store, or if you are not com
ing in, look in our west store
windows. There are six of
our suits and four of our
coats. This is a photograph
of our second floor bargains.
This window tells a whole
volume of truths. It tells it
to everybody, consumers and
competitors. It tells you if
you understand values that
you can't match these goods.
It demonstrates just what
we have said before and re
peated again today. These
goods must be sold and at
once regardless of what they
are worth in market or
what they cost us or cost the
Lund Co., whom we suc
ceeded. Take a good look
if you look well and you are
a judgethis stairway
won't look so hard to walk
up. Particularly if you got
the habit of saving some
thing. There are 22 steps
between you and these bar
gainsit means from 25c to
50c for every one of them.
You save by going up. The
window proves it.
In order to"secure the necessary room
to properly display our enormous stocks
of D0LL8 we have moved the Trunks,
temporarily, to the Carpet Dept., on third
floor, and Fancy Baskets on second floor.
