Elchkern of Han cock ran fourth and fifth, respective ly. While -tho contest for register of deeds In Calumet township, between Clyde Alackenzle and John Rastello, was somewhat eloe, the majorities received by iMlackenzle In other parts of tho county gave him a good lead for this ofllce.

Ry formal action of the War Department, any question of discrimination against left-handed candidates for the army has been removed.

As the question had nev er before leen raised, the Surgeon Oeneral of the army was asked for an opinion on the subject. He replied that a left-handed cadet should" not properly bo considered physically dis qualified. It Is considered certain that there have been cadets at West rolnt who were hfthanded, but this fact seems never to have occasioned comment. They probably nrcqulrcd to the uni formity of movement necessary I militia organization. CHICAGO CUSTOMS UP Chicago, Sept. 7.
