Chicago, Feb. 19.—Wheat: Has ruled stubbornly strong all (lay in the face of lower cables and lack of export de marii, the buying was exceedingly good. Northwestern markets led on strength all day and millers were re ported as better buyers of cash wheat indicating flour sales. Further snows were reported west and southwest and private reports from the growing crop »re still roseate. The market is in a position where any betterment of dom estic or export demand will be quickly advance futures. Corn—Held strong most of the ses sion: then weakened and closed l-8c to l-4c loss for the day. Heavy profess ional selling was absorbed by shorts and commission houses. The east still reports a holding back on the part or buyers. Stocks everywhere down to the vanishing point and replenishing needed very soon. Down state reports feeders out bidding Chicago and com peting points taking corn away from us. The short interest is apparently making every attempt to bring about a break on which they will be heavy purchasers as they -were when May Bold at 65c. Oats—Held steady, cash demand wan better although prices were lower The east are still rather indifferent on cash but must come into the market soon, Chas. E. Lewis & Co. Broomhall'a Report. Liverpool, Feb. 19.—Wheat: Easier American cables offset here by disap pointing indicated shipments from Ar gentine and as a result there was some support at opening. Russian offers are being well taken and Manltobas are nrmly held. Later there was some real ising with a pauclty.in the demand for Australian offers and bearish private cable from Chicago. American re serves are expected to show liberal quantity and the outlook for American winter wheat is considered here ex cellent. Corn unchanged.

Chapter 222 of the laws of 1913 ^ex pressly repeal chapter 212 of the laws of 1911 which provide for a second choice vote, and it was probable therefore that this was thought to leave in force the provisions of section 13 of chapter 109 of the iaws of 1907, which required, in tho circumstances therein set forth, the names of two candidates to be placed upon the bal lot. This cannot be true, however, be cause chapter 207 of the laws of 1911 expressly providing that the candidate receiving lie highest number of votes at the primary election shall be the nominee of the party for the office of United States senator was not repeal ed or amended or at all affected by chapter 222 of the laws of 1913, which disposed of the second choice vote. Neither did the legislative session of 1913 in any manneT attempt, so far as it can at this time be discovered, to change, modify, amend ol^repeal the provisions of chapter 207 of the laws of 1911. If that be true, then the par ty candidate for United States sena tor who receives the highest number of votes at the primary election is the candidate of the party, and there Is no law either requiring or permitting the secretary of state to put the names of two candidates upon the ballot. While no particular election machin ery has been provided by the legis lature with respect to the nomination and election of United States senators since the adoption of the seventeenth amendment to the constitution of the United States, yet that office has been the subject of legislation as to primary elections to the extent that it must bo held to have been the intent of the legislature to have candidates for such office selected by a vote of the people, and in the absence of any particular mode, the same method should be fol lowed as in the case of state officers. This eminent Fargo attorney is in clined to believe, therefore, that the statement that the secretary of state must place the names on the ballot of the two candidates of each party re ceiving the highest vote is not advis edly made, and if so, then the ques tion of a vacancy cannot arise. In any event, congress is the sole and exclusive Judge of the qualifica tions of its own members, and a mem ber elected as herein stated would un doubtedly be seated. No Election Hitch. According to this opinion, which seems to go into the matter to the very bottom and explain away €very ques tion that may arise on this point, it would seem there will be no hitch at all in the election of a United States senator to succeed Senator Gronna this year. This will leave the field entirely open and clear to the senator, to President Worst, Attorney General Miller and any others who may be in the race. The advices from Bismarck that mention the raising of this question, have given other cases wherein cer tain contingencies have risen in South Dakota about congressional elections. One citation is of a decision of the South Dakota supreme court wherein it held that the secretary of state held but a ministerial office and that he must comply with the statute relating to nominations and the placing of names on ballots and cannot arbi trarily pass on the qualifications of candidates, and exclude any candidate who had conformed with the law re lating to having his name on the ballot. In the South Dakota case Judge Mc Nulty resigned to become a candidate for congress and the secretary of state refused to put his name on the ballot holding the judge had no right to be come a candidate for any other office during the term for which he was elected judge. The court held that the secretary of state must put his name on the "ballot and let the court pass on the qualification of the candidate. Law Makes It Clear. Regarding this possibility, in the opinion of one of Fargo's best legal authorities, the duty of the secretary of state is clear by the above quoted North Dakota statutes so that the statement that he iB compelled to place the two names on.the fall ballot is not advisedly made and the question of any such vacancy cannot arise. Insofar as the secretary of state's following this plan, as has been re ported he will, it would not be for the courts to decide the qualification of the candidates, as would be the infer ence from the South Dakota case cit ed, but congress is the sole and exclu sive Judge of the qualifications of its own members, and as given in the opinion of a well known Fargo attor ney, a member so elected would un doubtedly be seated. So Senator Gronna, President Worst and Attorney General Miller would seem to have a perfectly clear field. Notice to Creditors. Notice is hereby given by the under signed, L.

The use of Sage and Sulphur for re storing faded, gray hair to its natural color dates back to grandmother's time. She used it to keep her hair beautifully dark, glossy and abundant. Whenever her hair fell out or took on that dull, faded or streaked appear ance, this simple mixture was applied with wonderful effect- But brewing at home is mussy and out-of-date. Nowadays, by asking at any drug store for a 50 cent bottle of "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Rem edy," j'ou will get this famous old recipe which can be depended upon to restore natural color and beauty to the hair and is splendid for dandruff, dry, feverish, itchy scalp and falling hair. A well-known downtown druggist says it darkens -the hair so naturally and evenly that nobody can haw been applied. You simply dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through the hair, taking one Ktrand at a time.

"I am not a candidate for United^ States senator and I have absolutely no intention of running for that office," said John Burke, treasurer of the* United States, heatedly as he was, leaving Mlnot from the democratic pow wow on his way back to Wash ington. The treasurer passed through Fargo over the Great Northern late last night on his way east. He was accom panied this far from Mlnot by a num ber of democrats of this city, including State Chairman McArthur, Col. George W. Wilkinson, E. E. Cole, and others. Mr. Burke made no attempt to leava the train. He sat up with his Northi Dakota friends until they left him atj Fargo and they all enjoyed indulging in reminiscences of their political bat tles in this state during the six yearsi the treasurer was governor. He went from here to the twin cit ies and thence on to Omaha, where he will deliver a speech to the Nebraska democracy on Saturday, Feb. 21. Tuesday, Feb. 24, he is scheduled toi speak to the Kansas democracy at Topeka. Is Not a Candidate, The former governor insisted he would not be a candidate for the sen ate. Before leaving Minot he stated, if he had his way about it he wiU k'eep out of the race. It is generally known that many ofi Mr. Burke's closest friends in the dem ocratic party of the state want to send, him to congress and that they are en deavoring to bring pressure upon him. to bring that about. Mr. Burke's friends seem to be of the opinion that the job of treasurer of the United States is not good, enough for him, and they are insist ing that he will "just simply have tot run for the senate". Contradicted Reports. However, before leaving Minot MXw Burke made it a special point to con tradict all the various newspaper re ports to the effect that he would prob ably be a candidate for United States, senator from North Dakota, and he vigorously denied that he would seeki the toga.
