Clly Counselor Decides Asnlnst Folic
The City Counselor handed a. decision
to the Board of dectlcnnCommisiloners
yesterday sustaining thrttbedy m their
action of refusing to allow "Folk repre-'
sentatives to examine the registration
books after April U last.
In the decision the recent election laws
were quoted, section 17 being singled out
to apply to the caso. This section states'
that ballot boxes, tho kevs thereof, reg
istration books and aU affllavlts and pa
pers pertaining to primary .elections shall
be open for tha Inspection of any citizen
for a period of thirty days after the
Folk followers were going over tha
books to -get material to lay before the
Commltteo on Credentials at tho conven
tion, with the Intention of declaring that
violence had been used at the polls.
When the Election Commissioners with
drew the books Mr. Folk's Eupporters de
clared that the thirty days had not ex
pired, alleging that the books had not
been In tho office steadily for thirty days
thereby preventing them from completing
their work. The primary took place on

Taiie Exception to Manner ! Which

Contralla. I1L. May . It Is probable
that the Prohibitionists will contest tho
recent jrfty election at Central City be
cause of the fact that the candidates on

of nominees with the vlllago Clerk In time
to have same printed on the official bal
lots, and as a result wero obliged to ere

Although the Prohibitionists polled a

the cso of the pasters was Illegal and a

Tho resolution did not pass without op
position. President Francis of tho
World's Fair attended the meeting at
which tho matter was discussed.
Chief of Police Klely was called into
the room, and when he stated that 110 a

GRAIN RATE WAR
St. Louis Defferential Reduced
From Five to Three CentB
Change Goes Into Effect
Chicago. May . After many futile at
tempts the Western railroads have suc
ceeded In completing a final settlement of
the grain-rate war between Missouri
River pelnts and Chicago. All have agreed
to mako proportional rates from all Mis
souri River points and have decided that
the through rates from Nebraska points
to Chicago shall not be lower than tha
combined locals, excepting certain Nebras
ka points tributary to the Sioux City
gateway, the latter being a oenceeaton to
tha Chicago and Northwestern.
The rates on grain from Omaha and
Council Bluffs will be tha same aa thoee
from Kansas City. Heretofore the rats
from the' former points waa 3 cents a 100
Tha St. Louis differential Is reduced
from S cents to 3 cents a hundred pounds,
which affords the Eastbound reads a bet
ter chance to compete with tbe Gulf
Present rates 5 cents on wheat and 4
cents on other grain will remain la ef
fect until tho new rates are, checked off.
and the latter probably win not go la
effect until June L

Albuquerque, N. M., May . In the
District Court Judge Baker has refused to
modify tha Injunction against the striking
Santa Fe machinists. Attorneys for tha
strikers sought to have the clause forbid
ding the strikers talking to nonunion
men stricken out. The court held that
the granting of this request might lead
to the Intimidation of new men and also
to their being driven from the service of
the road against their will. The court
neio mat tne injunction injured no law-,
abiding- citizen, and therefore continued
it in force until June 1.
A rereree was appointed to take testi
