Thomas E. Davis, a coioreu section

his right arm shot off lost night at
Hoaz Station, where ho lives, by Arch
Dawson, another section hand, and
both men claim the shooting was accidental.
They wero in a room togo her, nud
Dawson was fooling with u

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
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
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.
