The truth is that they do not otTer any definite legislation or imlicy by which the lyppy conditions they prom ise arc to bo brought about, but if their promises mean anything, they lead directly toward the appropriation of what belongs to one man, to an other.

It seems there was some delay in the turning in of the al when the department armed the heat bad broken out the entire glass front, and the windowR in the rear and flames were roaring from both openings. The awning in front of the 1'alace drug store was on fire, and the heat bad broken out one of the drug store's windows. Three lines of hose were inimertl aiely brought into use and before long the fire was under control. To save the interior of the building or any part was impossible and the work of the fire fighters was distinctly to keeji the fire confined to the burning building, to which end their labors were successful. Had there been a high wind the result might have been different. The wind, however, was from the north and very light, bo by strenuous work on the part of the fire department, a fire that if once under headway would have wrought havoc with the business section, was nipped In tbe bud ami held strictly to its point of origin.

Secretary Kuey oi tne. state election board yes terday addressed the following to tne secretaries of .the county election boards: Dear Sir : This board has construed tbe pri mary election law as to tbe voter's rights as follows: In cities of the first class where the voters register as a Democrat, lie publican, Socialist or Prohibitionist they must vote as they register, ami in all other precincts the same law applies. In a case in the criminal court of appeals in which a decision was handed down yesterday the elec tion hoard's position was sustained, I wish you yould instruct your various inspectors in your county to see that this is carried out; not permitting the Socialists and llepnblicans to call for a Denim ratic ticket in the various pre cincts, but let them vote for the party they have aligned themselves, with, unless they desire to affiliate h the future wilH' the Democratic party, a registration certificate should be sat isfactory evidence of party fealty. You are more familiar with the local con ditions in your own eourty and more able to '..ijiile this position, but on the abovo lines the criminal court of appeals sustains this board. A man who has registered as an independent in cities of the first class has no place to vote. It he desires to jhange bis registration, 1 would no! '--"it.-te to comply with ids request. See that your election is carried ofr In a just and fair way, and that every candidate gets every vote be is en titled to. This board will not counte nance and has no desire, or wish, to canvass the returns of any county who' tin there is a question as to votes being cast illegally. We must have a legal election, and by following the election law, treat ing every voter fair ly, -there can be no question about the election. Kmphatieally instruct your precinct, inspector to see that the election is conducted in this way. Fee that your counters count every ballot as it is put into the box, and see that they call the ballots just as they come out of Hie box. Especially instruct them upon this. This is one election in the state that should be conducted in a rair ami mmes-L way.. Very truly yours, PEN' W. K1LKY, MN. CASE Telegram by United I ress New York, Aug. 1.

Three crops of alfalfa have already been harvested, the first and third cuttings being heavy. While the shower here this morning was a light one, it tame very gently and none of ft was lost. At Hush Springs it was reported that the rain was heavy and it Beems to have been general , in the county. Cloudy and cooler weather during the past three days has been of, great benefit.
