Now Time for Republicans to
Cheerfully . Prepare for
November Election
The primary election In Kansas Tuel
day appeara to bave resulted la tbe noml
nation of W. R. Stubbs for Governor and
Josepn L. Brlstow for U. 8. Senator,
Whlla ihu lurfnr nflli'.M is not dlrentlv
ileetlve, It ii tbe purpose of the law that
Abe representatives and state senators
vote on U. 8. senator as the people of
thtlr districts voted in tbe primaries and
this will no doubt be done so that
If tbe Kansas legislature is Republican
Mr. Brlstow's election Is practically a
, certainty.
While tbe Olobe-Republioan regrets to
tee Senator Long retired, just at a time
when be would be of great value to bis
state, It Is willing to aocept Mr. Brlstow
as tbe obolce of the Republicans of Kan-
. sas, and while, too tbe paper baa bad no
part In selecting Mr. Stubbi at tbe candi
date for governor, tbls paper expects to
support both of these candidates and
wlsliej now to insist that It is time, as
iood as tbe official vote of tbe primary
ballots is made, to make tbe choice
of tbe majority unanimous, and ge(
down to business together to see that
tbe candidates are elected at tbe polls In
There were only three contests in the
county, and it is to be hoped that tbe
winning ones will receive tbe support
of those less fortunate.
In the contest on senator the Globe
Republican bas stood wltb Ford county,
at least- Senator Long reoalved a good
majority In tbls county.
From tbe reports received It Is be-,
lleved tbat in tbe contests In Ford cuunty
fur Clerk of the Court, County Super
intendent and Probate Judge, the win
ning candidates are, H, D. Obambllss,
Ricbard Bo iy field and Judge Preston.
The olHleUl cnuot will be made to
morrow and the vote will be published
next week.
Un the state ticket Judge West was
defeated. There were four candidates
on tbe ticket and three to vote for.
Judge West's name oame last on the
ballot, as they are put on alphabetically,
and tbls caused his defeat. Many
voters simply muked tbe first three
names on tbe ticket and,there were other
things which showed up tbe sameway
on tbe ballots. Where candidates were
not well knowaj to tbe voters, tbe first
name on tbejballot badjtbe advantage.
For Attorney General, F.S.'Jackson Is
renominated. Tbe state printer Is still
In doubt.

But the Bullets Did Not Strike
Where They Will Prove
Two men faoed each otber wltb guns
near Ford yesterday evening and shot to
kill and it was reported bere last night
that one would die, a report tbat will
no doubt prove a mistake. Tbe affair
which eulminated In the shooting scrape
at Ford yesterday began wltb an elope.
ment from Clovis, New Mexico, on tbe
Fourth of July. It is reported that
R. E. Edwards at that time left bis
family and disappeared. At tbe same
time tbe wife and four year old daugh
ter of Byron Webb of Clovis disappeared
and Mr. Webb believed tnat his wife
bad left wltb Edwards. Webb was a
painter and was in tbe employ of tbe
Santa Fe at Clovis at the time. He quit
bis work and began a search, one wblcb
showed tbat be bad determined to locate
tbe missing ones. Although be went
about the matter systematically, be failed
tbe first few weeks to get any trace of
tbem. He went to different places
where Edwards had formerly lived,
making Denver on tbe trip. A short
time ago be got tbe track of Edwards
and following tbe trail be arrived in
Ford yesterday. He began a seareb in
tbe wheat country surrounding Ford,
and finally at one of tbe farms learned
that Edwards was hauling wheat from a
farm about five miles distant.
Webb drove to tbe plaee at once and
found his wife and little daughter at
Edwards's camp. Edwards had brought
a load of wheat to Dodge City and bad
not returned. Webb waited at a eamp
nearby until he saw Edwards coming and
went oat to meet blm. He says that
be called to Edwards tbat be wanted
to see him. Webb claims now that
be did uot Intend to begin any
shooting unloss he was compelled to and
tbat as there were others about be did
not think that Edwarda would try to
Kill him. He says tbat Edwards picked
up a shot gun and shot at him at close
range missing him. Webb had a gun
in his band and tbe melee began.
Webb's first shot struck Edwards In tbe
shoulder. Tbe shooting lasted only a
moment. Edwards team started op and
tbe men became separated.
Webb seems to be a quiet deliberate
sort of a young man and be claims that
be bad no intention of killing Edwards
