Store House and Goods of Shaw Brothers Destroyed
By Fire Last Night.
rom Thursday's Daily.
At 11 o'clock last night fire was
discovered in the store house at
the corner of Main and Crawford
streets occupied by Sliaw Bros.,
and was under such headway that
nothing could be saved from the
building. It was but a few min
utes after the fire was discovered
till the building was a mass of
flames, and then it spread to a
small lunch room standing next
to the building. This was also
aaentued , and it looked for a
time like the Win field Barber
Shop building would be destroyed,
but it was saved, with one side of
the wall schorched and several
holes burmed - the roof.

Politicians Do Not Deny That
There'll Be "Big Doings."
Washington, Nov. 9.-The big
Republican victory in Ohio has
caused much significant comment
here and many prominent politi
cians are discussing how it will
affect Roosevelt. Leaders of
both parties do not deny the
statement that some high politics
will be played in Congress this
winter. Hanna has shown his
power, and since he is :mot to be
chairman of the Republican exec
utive committee, there is nothi::ig
to keep himn from running for
president. In view of this is
hel the statement on all sides
that it will be impossible for
Roosevelt to control the southern
delegations in the next national
convention, and nany things may
be expected.
Stealing a March.
According to the Dodson cor
respondent of the Shreveport
Times Uncle Bob Jones has
"stole a march" on some of the
other candidates. He has been
running for clerk of the
court for the past faw weeks, but
now the correspondent informs us
that he was up there seeing the
voters with regard to his candUde
cy for the sheriff's office.
