Primary Aftermath The voters of Cut Bank prov ed loyal to their home candidates at the primary eledtion a re freshing sign of a better era here in Cut Bank. Martin Jacobson was paid a splendid tribute by the home people, receiving all but four votes for commissioner. John Coburn was also accorded a fine tribute by the local electors. The Judges and clerks of the primary eledtin in Cut Banks two voting precindts were as follows: No. 26, J. J. Miller, Jack Whittecar, Pat Connolly, John Connolly and Daniel Whetätone, judges; Martin VanDemark and R. Hull, Clerks. No. 27, T , , r _ Harry Halvorson, J. P. Johnson and Chas. Ferres, Judges; W. T. Jackson and Nick Arnett, clerks. Frank E. VanDemark, candi date for justice of the peace, and George Massengill, chosen as precindt committeemen by the democrats of precindt No. 27, are making their first voyage over the political seas. Kenneth McKenzie is still a magic name in Teton county—a name that is translated into success at each and every elec tion. John Green, the aggressive young Conrad lawyer, looms forth as a coming strong man in Teton county .. Mr. Pridham is allright but had to stand sponsor for a weak administration of his superior's office. Did you notice how the Cut Bank voters expressed this conviction? Cut Bank voters did remark ably well with their first try at the new Montana primary law. If you will pardon the pun, Mr. Foot seems to have landed with both feet. Sam Potter is a straight-laced stand-pat republican, neverthe less he seems popular with all parties. Several democrats and o.ie socialift wrote bis name on their ballots for committeeman. As usual, Judge Thomas came down the track ylike a Belgian hare. Ed Garrett had no opposition but Cut Bank republicans paid him a. handsome compliment, nevertheless. Five Socialist votes were cast in Precinct 26 and none in 27— the strong socialist precinct in the last general election. The people cried "give us the direct primary"—and then they neglected to use it. Thank Allahl Cut Bank is safe and sane. Not a single Bull Moose vote cast here. Dr. Hulbush is among those who polled almost the full party vote. Bud (Harvey) Brown, who will go on with Kid West for a 10-round boxing bout here next Tuesday evening. Big Ditch Machine is Moving Rapidly Work on Water System is Going at a Good Pace Those about town who de clared that they would not believe Cut Bank would have a water works system until they ^aw the dirt flv ought to be convinced by this time. But the dirt does not fly today as it did in the olden days. Paddy and his pick are in the discard. Where twenty-five or thirty men might be employed in digging trenches after the old way of doing it, a circular digg er operated by steam power chaWs into the earth to a depth of about seven feet, cutting out a clean, smooth ditch, elevating the dirt and dumping it into a carrier, which neatly piles it alongside the ditch. Work on the system will be pushed with great vigor now. Work on the tower, the engine house and ditching and pipe laying will afford employment for quite a few men, even though modern mechanism does play a big part. The Green company desire to have the work completed before the period when inclement weather may be expedted and will waste no time from henceforth. Public Work Material for the Cut Bank river bridge is arriving and it is probable that actual construc tion work will soon commence. This bridge must be completed in a month or 6 weeks and a large crew of men will no doubt be put to work on it. The bridge is to cost about $10,000.00 and a considerable portion of this will be paid out to labor. Cut Bank ought to and doubt less be benefited considerably this autumn through the money expended in the construdton of this bridge and the water works syftem.

WORDEN, Cashier Allison Machine i Blown Up by In surgents, Tuesday Boss Bud and Sly Steve are Latest Political 'Lame Ducks' No more perplexing is that old interrogation "who put the molasses in grandpa's boots" than the queiftion of the hour, "who blew up the Rigney Allison political machine Tues day?" The Rigney-Allison machine, which was built with such painstaking and loving care, was shattered to shards by a mine, planted by vengeful and plotting insurgents, at the Tues day primaries. Nothing but scrapiron remains of the well lubricated and efficient little steam crusher that Steve and Bud have been piloting about this precindt for the last year or so. It appears that there has been much secret activity in the camps of the Insurgents or Young Turks in the last few weeks. These insurgents never took kindly to the little steam crusher. They asserted that Steve and Bud arrogated to themselves the complete bos sism of local democracy. The democratic counsels were at tended by these political Sia mese Twins. They were the front and rear of the democratic hosts; the generals and the soldiers. They annointed them selves with the sacred oils of authority, in short they ponti ficated and personified local democracy in a sort of Divine Right of Kings fashion. But the red revolution came Tuesday. Out of the seething caldron of insurgency appeared a new leader around whom the Insurgents rallied. The new leader is E. M. Davis. In the parlance of the wrestling game Davis went to the mat witn the erftwhile mignty bud and come out a victor, 'mere is a new democratic organization in Cut Bank just now and Davis is proclaimed the new political leader. Bud and Steve are our political lame ducks—ail same Boise Penrose and Billy Lonmer. Rain began to fall shortly after the opening the big prize trap shoot, laät Sunday after noon, and the the shoot was postponed until next Sunday at the same hour.
