N. D. Tibbals, while he was in tho race with Mr. W. E. Pardee for "nomination! as tho Republi can cnudldato for Probate Judgo, have been comparing notes, and tho results aro not a little surprising. They show that very few, if any, of tho supporters of Judge Tibbals were assigned to committees or made vice presidents on the occasion of the state campaign oponlng held here on the 27th of September. And thoso who wore most active in tLViibbals cam paign wero completely ignored, as if to administer a rebuke for their hav ing dared to sot up their opinions against those of Czar Andeison. This attitude must have been studied care fully, for It vas carried out to tho letter. At first -some of jtho nctl e Republicans who wero slighted paid no attention to it, admitting to them selves that an oerslght could easily occur during tho rush of preparations, but when several of them got to com paring notes, tho "oveislghts'' were soon to have been planned. Ex-Prosecutor R. M. Wanamaker was completely ignored, and so wore Sheriff P. G. Kelly, Deputy Walter C. Holllnger and Ralph S. Hamlin, E. M.
