Th«* Crawford County plan, so called fDim
the fact that it originated in Crawford Coun
ty, Indiana, is attracting attention and gain
log popularity with all partied! The Democ
racy of Colusa County, California, are the
first to adopt it on this coast. It originated
with the Republicans of Crawford County In
18ÔH, and is substantially as follows: Instead
of the primary and convention system as ut
present practised by all parties, an iniquity
entailed upon thc juJUics of the country by
Martin Van Huren, Uie party about to make
nominations gives notice through the Chair
roan of the County or District Central Com
mittee, as the ca&e may Is?, that on a certain
day the men»l»era of the party named in the
notice trill meet at their resjiective places or
voting and there vote directly by ballot for
their choice for candidates to l»e elected at
the approaching election. Judges, tellers,
and clerks are appointed to receive, count
and record the votes, as at a regular election.
These returns are sealed and transmitted to
the Chairman ol the Central Committee,
who has called the Committee to meet on a
certain day, when the Chairman, in the
presence and with the assistance of at le-ast
a majority of said Committee, shall open and
rount the returns from the various precincts
and tho man having the highest aggregate
number of votes for each particular office
Fhall be declared the nominee of the party
for thut office. The plan is well considered
and guarded against members of the oppos
ing party or parties taking part and control
ing nominations, but ns we have not the de
tails before us
of it so as to lay its workings before the
leader. It is certain that the present method
of choosing candidates is faulty, and that it
is a means of corruption that almost any
thing would l>o an improvement on.
trust the Crawford plan will be found to
work wo!!, and that it will be universally
adopted by all parties.

among blasters,except nltro-glycerino, which
is said to be thc active principal in the pow

proven that it cannot be exploded by friction
nor by fire in the ojien air, but when con

and once the gas is ignited, the whole mass
explodes. Hitherto it lias been the belief
troong miners that it could only be explod
ed by the use of what Is known as the con
« uKHion cap, this cap which is probably
• hurgçd with nitroglycerine, is slipped onto
tho end of the fuse and buried In the primer
or loose powder on top of the charge, when
the Are in the fuse reaches the rap it ex
plodes and set* the blast off. Noel McKay
and other experienced miners inform us that
they have used Giant powder much rougher
than it is considered safe to handle common
black powder, pounding it with drill-heads
hammers etc. when froxen, thawing it over,
throwing portions ef it on the fire,
