They wero in a room togo her, nud Dawson was fooling with u shot cuu. It was discharged, a load of No. 6 shot shattering the rlebt arm of Davis in a horrible manner. The fortitudo of tho vio im is creat, as uo wmkcu w iu aramount question in politi cal vkM now is, will tho slate made up at9io recent democratic caucus be taken. Quite naturally there is diversity of opinion on the subject. Some of those personally Interested say that It will, while others say that it will not. Then there aro those who say they arc too disgusted tn give the mallei any thought. Tho article in Saturday's Stw has created considerable stir among the democrats, and has occasioned no little comment. Today of tho council could be seen hobnobbing together in many places, indicating that something Is up. The Srs simply gave tho facts Satur day as an item of news deemed Interesting to chronicle. There is much dissatisfaction manifested nmong some of the Democrats, and while many are indifferent as to whether tho slate is elected or not, others aro open in their oppo sition tn some of the nominees. Hut whether there aro any grounds for discontent or not, it Is nevertheless fact that there Is discontent. It is equally certain that a great deal of Influence Is being brought to bear on some of the councilmen to repudiate tho caucus. Tho defeated candidates, or many of them, arc living in hope, while many of them are living In 'hot water." Whether tho slate is broken or not, thcrG is promise of n Utile fun among the Democrats un til the matter Is settled, ono way or the other. It is said that ono councilman is so disgusted that ho seriously considers the advisability of declining to qualify when the time comes. Tiik Sirs has been criticized by somo for publishing the facts in the affair. It has no interest whatever in I ho matter except to give the news, and that it Is reliable news one can readily learn by getting out among the people and keeping his ears open. Tho Sure doesn't care what kind of slato tho Democratic counci makes up or whet Is on It. It never expected any Republicans to be nominated, although one of tho nominees Is said to be a Republican, despite the fact that ho is registered as a Democrat. As long as there is any dissatisfaction in tho ranks, however, tho Sux will continue to publish tho facts as near as they can bo obtaind. REV. FISMER Prcnclied at the German Evangelical Chinch.
