Only Two Candidates.
The ticket for the primary elect ion, to be held Tuesday, Aug. 15th, will contain the names of only two candidates— R. N. Miller and Percy E. Quin, candidates for congress. John Sharp Williams has no opposition for the senate, and Judge J. B. Holden is the only candidate for the supreme bench, his opponent, Judge Hughes, hav ing withdrawn from the race. Claiborne is the only county, we believe, which made no assess ment on the candidates. Reveille prints the tickets free of charge, the members of the ex ecutive committee tracked the law in the matter of paying managers of election, and its members agreed to see that the boxes were carried to and from the polls free of cost to the candidates.

ARMY IS MAGNET FOR BOOTLEGGERS Illicit Dispensers of Liquor Busy in Dry Territory Along Mexi can Eorder. PEGLEG WALKING BARROOM Cook With Troopers at Columbus Ped dles Refreshments From His Oaken Limb Until Officers Discovered Source of Supply. Columbus, N. M.—Everywhere that the broad trail of the army leads, the trail of the ".bootlegger" parallels. Par ticularly if the route of the troop ers lies through dry territory, the il licit dispenser of the draft that sometimes cheers is a hanger-on. And he has a million and one ways to evade the regulations. The bootlegger arrived in Columbus about ten seconds after Uncle Sam's He did a profitable soldier boys, business, especially around pay day. Some of the troopers, disgruntled be cause they were forced to remain here Inactive while their mates were play ing hide-and-seek with Villa in the sand dunes, were intent on drowning their sorrows. Others celebrated their good fortune when they were ordered to cross the line. "Pegleg" is, or was, a cook for the civilian employees of the quartermas ter's department. The name comes from his portside limb, which is of Bturdy oak. After the troops arrived, Pegleg seemed always to be in the mood that can come only from looking on the wine when it is red. And he became surprisingly prosperous. His condition drew the suspicion of the army authorities. Lieut. Austin M. Pardee of the Twentieth infantry, detailed as a pro vost marshal, decided that Pegleg would bear watching. After several hours of watchful waiting he saw two troopers slide up to Pegleg's tent and in distinctly audi ble tones bid Pegleg to "set out the Joy juice, when Lieutenant Pardee arrested the Pegleg was complying 11 three. I won't go!" declared Pegleg, and promptly lay down. Get two men to carry bdmg" gug' gested a sergeant ... << , Get nothing," decided Lieutenant Pardee. pants and his leg, and let him lie there. He won't escape on one leg, that Is certain." Pegleg protested vigorously, but It availed him nothing. The pants came off, likewise the leg, and with the lat ter came the secret of Pegleg's suc cess at dispensing. The leg was hollow, lined with tin, and held at least a half a gallon of liquor. Pegleg, his stores confiscated and poured into a dry but unappreciative desert, was landed on an eastbound freight. Half an hour later Lieutenant Par dee saw a white-haired, venerable looking old gentleman alight from an eastern passenger train. He carried a suitcase. Two soldiers greeted the old man affectionately. Got anything good?" queried Lieu tenant Pardee. "S-s-s-h-h; it's six bits a bottle. I got to get big money because its risky business here," replied the aged one. K You fellows take off his So it is," commented the lieuten ant as he took the suitcase and start ed leading the procession for the jail. Since the troops have been here, dozens of suitcases have been con fiscated in a like manner. Columbus is strewn with broken bottles—their contents having wetted an arid des ert.

ROADS APPEAUNG TO THE FARMERS ON WAGE RAISE If Demands Are Granted Farmer* Will Have To Pay Big Part Of Increase J Washington, D. C.— Though farm feel little interest in railway labor disputes and are dis posed to think that such troubles are remote from them and cannot touch them directly. In the pending que» the Brotherhoods of ers usually tion between freight trainmen and the railways of the country the railways evidently making special effort to inform the farmers on the points involved and to enlist their attention. It is argued by the railroad man agers that the final disposition of the dispute will be made by public senti They reason that the farmer, to a final "show are ment. when it comes down," really controls not only the political power but the sentiment of nearly all the states. Therefore, they appeal to his horse They are sending out a good are trying to sense. deal of literature directed especially to the farmers—probably the first time such a course has been taken in any great labor struggle. They say they are convinced of the gene ral public's confidence In the horse sense, the Insight and the fairness of the American farmer, and that, there fore, his influence must be powerful. High Wages Now Paid They are dwelling especially on the Argument that the freight trainmen already are jh e „high est paid laborers in the' world. They submit figures to show that in many instances freight train employees earn from |75.00 a month for the trainmen, or "brake man" as they used to be called, to $250.00 a month for engineers, work inig from 22 to 26 days a month. They are asking fanners to inquire into the facts and convince them selves that most of the talk of ex cessive hours of labor on railways is empty and contradicted by the facts. More than sixteen hours of continu ous work in railway service is for bidden by law. The instances of men kept on duty so long as sixeen hours are a very small fractional per centage of the total employment; they become less every year, and al most invariably are due to accident or some unusual weather conditions. The managers of the railway com that the point out himself accustomed to to fourteen hours work and panies farmer, from twelve a day of steady rarely earns in a year as much cash as a trainman on duty from money ten to twelve hours, and never con tinuously at work, can earn, resting from labor from one-fourth to one third of his time. In the south it is a familiar maxim that "it takes thir teen months to make a cotton crop. The man who raises ten bales of cot ton gets for it in money from $450.00 to $500.00, and from this must pay his living expenses, •• fertilizer bills The trainmen are said and labor, to average $800.00 a year, this being j the estimate of the Brotherhood lead themselves, and the engineers draw from $1,500.00 the conductors ers to $2,500.00 a and firemen year, earning wages between those of the trainmen and engineers. Farmer Vitally Interested Aside from the question of justice, it is pointed out that the farmer's direct interest in the matter is that his welfare demands freight traffic adequate to the needs of the country, and that whatever injures the rail roads or hampers their operation or prevents their development is a direct injury to him. If the trouble should develop a general strike of the freight j train employees, resulting in a tie- j up of traffic, the fanfier would be un able to ship out what he raises or to get in what he wants. He will be asked to consider whether the rail Toads should be crippled by being compelled to pay 25 per cent increase In wages to men already receiving far more than the average prosper farmer, with resulting injury to -011s the farmer himself—and if the rail roads are compelled to grant the in and have to raise their freight crease rates, the farmer will have to pay a big part of the increase. Rank Nonsense. It is the rankest nonsense for The Trainman to pretend that the public has nothing to do with this business. The public has everything to do with it, as the brotherhoods will find, if they refuse arbitration and cast con servatism to the winds, cowardly government could not, in that case, shrink from its supreme duty of keeping the national high ways open to commerce.— New Or leans Times-Picayune. The most Freight Accidents Decrease, The use of the huge new locomo tives and the long and heavy trains, against which the Brotherhoods of freight trainmen, who are asking an enormous increase in wages, protest vigorously, seems to have resulted In a rapid decrease in accidents to Tailroad employees, and a decided in crease in their safety. The number of railway employees killed in ser vice diminished from 620 in 1911 to 452 in 1914, and the number of in jured from 6601 to 4823. so GIRL RIDES BLIND BAGGAGE -June Giemen Says Woman Will Do Anything for the Man She Loves.
