Lea Has taken the suii of the regular Republicans against thf board of county election commission ers, charging that an error had beer committed in designating the insurg ents “Independent Republicans,’ under advisement until Monday. The hearing in the circuit court room Monday morning occupied the court an hour and a half, from 10:30 o’clock until noon. The regulars were represented by U. S. Bratton, J. A. Comer and E. W. Kimball. The insurgents were repre sented by H. F. Auten. Judge F. M. Fulk, chairman; De E. Bradshaw and Scipio Jones, composing the election commission, were present. Mr. Bratton opened the argument for the regulars. He went over in detail the statements made in the petition and the deposition of Judge J. T. O’Hair, who had tiled it as chair man of the county Republican central committee. The entire argument brought to bear was much the same as that made by Col. Whipple, when the Republican state central com mittee petitioned the chancery couit to order the secretary of state to certify Mr. Greaves as an “Independ ent.” Precedents in Northern and Western states were cited. Mr. Auten, for the insurgents, con tended that the court had no jurisdic tion over the question at issue, and that if an error had been made at all, it was in placing the qualifying word “Independent,’ before “Republican” on the ballot. The so-called insur gents were as much republicans as were the so-called regulars. FINAL AND OFFICIAL ROUTE. Much has been said and written about the Missouri Pacific railroad extension now building from Bates ville, Arkansas. The Springfield Re publican of last Sunday' published the following which it claims is official and if so it would seem that Cassville is on the proposed line. The Re publican says: Springfield has been anxious to secure the road and has had high hopes that President George J. Gould would see that it would he to ins ad vantage to build that way. Aurora is anxious that the line be built through that place, while the people are san guine that the White River Road will connect there, but it will not, nor will it go through either of the other cities mentioned. From Buffalo City and Yellvilie, Arkansas, the road will be built on a straight line to connect with the Granby extension now two miles beyond Granby. This is offici al. FRISCO WRECK NEAR OSCEOLA.

D: At about 10:30 a. m., amid the music from several excellent bands and the cheers of thousands of people along Broadway the elegant circus parade of the Campbell Bros, show in tri umph passed up Fargo’s main thoroughfare. Ifc was a magnificent parade. There were the rich and costly equipages, beautiful beyond description, the handsome uniforms, the magnificent array of blooded horses, the great elephant and other smaller ones, one-humped and two humped camels, a large number of cages of animals, some of them open and displaying the wild beasts of the forests and plains, offcthe tropics and of the mountains of the north. Sit ting in the cages with ferocious look ing boasts were the trainers calm but watchful. There was the enormous behemoth, a monster in size and horrible in appearance, with its enor mous mouth opening ever and anon, closing upon the bits of food thrown into the cavern by the trainer. Last but not least there was the noisy steam calliope, which always attracts a great deal of attention and is bound to be conspicuous. The Campbell Bros, has a fine one. There wras the free exhibition before the doors of the main tent on North Broadway. The attendance was flattering despite the rain and the threatening elements. Thousands thronged the large tents. There were words of praise for the remarkable menagerie, the large va ri ty of splendid animals and the special attractions were all that could be desired. The acting was of high order and gave entire satisfaction to the great audience that filled the tent. Hair raising feats brought out the applause of the spectators again and again and the clowns with their funny diversions were a feature that captured all. The Campbell Bros, made a great bit and will no doubt have a full tent this evening.
