D. Copleu R. M. Anderson James Cochran W. J. Lowthian Louis Stecker C. A. Aexander H. 0. Ilouser James II. Welch II. F. Blevins - In a primary election filled with sur prises H. M. Anderson wns chosen as tho democratic nominco for marshal and Charles A. Alexander was selected as tho party candidato for tho office of city clerk yesterday in tho first direct primary ever held in this city. The overwhelming defeat of James II. Welch, present 'city clerk, by Charles Ji.. Alexander, tho hard fight for the po sition of marshal by James Cochran find tho victory of Andro Maurel for coun cilman from tho Sixth ward .were tho surprises of tho day. Even his oppon ents credited Welch with having at least an oven break in tho contest and -rallies Cochran was not considered as having a fighting chance. When the returns wero in, however, a coimileto leversal of the dopo was shown. Bob Anderson won the nomination for city marshal by a plurality of 123 over Cochran. It was his strength in tho third and fifth wards that won for him, however, as Cochran lead by six votes in tho first ward, ran a dead heat in tho sixth ward and innilo an excel lent showing in tho second and fourth Srarils, , i ; ,$rii uv , vj . J. Lowthian and "Louis Stecker, tho remaining candidates for this posi tion, fell short a long, distnnco, re ceiving a combined voto of less than half that polled by Anderson. Charles' Aloxandcr made a. whirlwind race for tho nomination for clerk. IIo carried every ward in tho city by a big margin and polled nearly four-fifths as many votes as his two opponents combined. ,Harry 0. Ilouser took second place over James If. Welch, incumbent, who finished last. In tho Fifth ward, Welch topped Hou'ser by ono vote. In every other ward ho was beaten by Ilouser by many votes. His defeat was a sur prise and tho utter lack of support ac corded him wns an even greater sur prise. Maurel Wins Out Another surprise was sprung in tho Sixth ward, where Andro Maurel de feated II. W. Piper by seven 'votes. Maurel was a candidate for nomination several weeks ago and secured a well filled petition. In fact, he secured more names to his petition than the law al lowed and as tho rcsijlt, his 11.11110 could not be posted on tho ticket. In spite of this fact, howovor, Maurel deter mined to inn and hnvo his name writ ten in tho ticket. IIo carried his cam paign tlirou'gh and even under this hand icap, secured a majority of tho votes east in tho ward The only other contest in the election was forth position of alderman from the Fifth ward. Arthur Fiancis was opposed by Owen McKevitt, who scored an easy victory.

The ward vote was as follows: First, 133; Second, 108; Third, 280; Fourth, 13li; Fifth, 12", Sixth, 81. That Anderson and Alexander would be successful candidates was practi cally assured long befoio tho count was completed. In both the Second and Third wards, where Welch was consid ered to bo strong, ho ran behind almost from tho start.

In the most disastrous and far reaching storm ex perienced in a generation, damago to budding fruits, crops and vegetables amounting to more than $30,000,000 has been wrought in the middlo west.

Somo of the attorneys in the hearing believe the caso can go to tho jury in five or six weeks. Walsh said tonight he thought it would e completed in five weeks. The state has thirty-seven witnesses to call. How many the defense will summon is only known to Walsh, and lie will not tell. Chief interest lies in the coming testimony of Mrs. Swopo and her daughter, Mrs. Hyde. Although the state was denied tho privilego of go ing into tho private life of Hyde in the opening statement, it hopes to throw light on this phase of tho case later. Mis. Swopo is the witness who is de pended upon to grill the physician from the witness stand. In refutation of tho stories told by Mrs. Swope and Miss Keller, the dofense will offer Mrs. Hyde as a witness. Judge Latshaw's ruling that every phase of tho Swope mystery must be developed in order, if possible, to show a motive on the part of Dr. Hyde in conclusion with tho alleged killing of Colonel Swope, makes it certain that ate the trial is ended the public' will have heard all there is to tell of the mystery.

To use Roosevelt's own words, toaay marked the crowning of his career as a man of letters. From noon until midnight lie was the guest of intellectual Paris, participating as a member at a session of the French acad emy, delivering a lecture at Sarbonne, which, as ho said, was the foremost seat of learning in Europe before America was discovered, remaining as a guest at .1 faculty dinner and a grand recep tion given by the university in his honor. Roosevelt's reception at the institute and that at the Sarbonne were equally impressive, but in a different way. At the former he was introduced as a mem ber and took his seat among his dis tinguished conferees, most of whom have grown old in the service of sci ence. After listening to the words of M Boutroux, president of the Academy of Moral and Politic Sciences, who spoke eloquently of American ideals and char acter, of which, ho "Said, Theodore Roosevelt was the best exponent, the former president replied in French, bis utterances arousing his venerable col leagues to unwonted applause.

Within the building was enthusiasm unbounded, the vast crowd in the amphitheatre in terrupting again and again with storms of applause as the speaker defined the duties of individual citizenship in a re public, scorning the sluggard cynics and idle rich, preaching a gospel of work, character and the stienuous life. Sev oral times ho interjected observations in French after he had defined his atti tude on tho subject of human .rights and property rights. He repeated this in French, saying it constituted t-e crux of what he had said :yid he desired everyone to understand him. His words in this connection were: "My position as regards the moneyed interests can bo put into a few words. In every civilized society property rights mnst be carefully safeguarded. Ordinarily in a great majority of cases of human rights and property rights the fundamental in the long run is identical. But when it clearly appears that there is a real conflict between them, human rights must have the upper hand, for property belongs to man, not man to property.
