It is a compromise measure, passed by the two dominant political parties in this state. It seeks to rem edy many of the objections to the primary system. Objection to the primary hqs been growing for some years. Many men who would have taken a nomination from a state convention declined to make the financial sacrifice for a cam paign under the primary. The cost to the state was very heavy. It was pro portionately heavy to the candidates seeking nomination. They found be cause of the geographical conditions of the state it was difficult to make a campaign without heavy cost. Many candidates who had the time and mon ey spent both liberally and success fully. They ^vere usually nominated. These conditions soon aroused critic ism. Primary Principle Retained. The new law adopts the primary principle as to the nomination of coun ty and legislative delegates, and de ciding representation in the state con ventions. They are all nominated by direct vote in their respective counties just as has been the case under the primary law in the past Those aspir ing to office in counties must do one of three things: they must secure the approval of the county chairman, or, failing in that, approval of the county committee, committee, they may secure the indorsement of five members of their own party who are willing to vouch that they have been affiliated with the party for two years previous. • The delegates making up the re county conventions which If they can get neither, If they can get neither, spective will in turn elect delegates to the state conventions, will be elected by all of those affiliated with their par ty at the primary election. There will be one delegate elected from each precinct. the position of delegate may do so. The one receiving the highest number of votes will be declared elected. The county conventions will elect the dele gates to the state conventions. These to be held by all of the political As many as want to run for are parties the first Tuesday in August.

BUILD AIRSHIPS TO LIFT 280 TONS British War Office Officials Be lieve Machine Is Prac tical. GREAT POSSIBILITIES SEEN Immense Craft Could Cross Atlantic and Return and Then Repeat the Pause, Without Journey Weather Permitting. London.—A rigid airship—Zeppelin type—of 10,000,000 cubic feet capac ity, or about three times as large as any yet constructed, is a practical proposition, according to war office Such an airship would pos total lifting power of about 280 The structural weight, that Is, bags, framework, gondolas, operating machinery, etc., officials. sess a tons, the gas engines, would be not more than 80 tons, leav ing 200 tons as disposable lift. Only 50 tons would be required to make room for the crew, petrol ballast, etc., leaving 150 tons commercial load which could be carried. Such an airship could cross the At lantic and return and then repeat the journey without a pause, If weather were favorable. British Government Interested. Because the British empire is so far-flung, the government Is encour aging development of aerial communi cation for both passengers and light parcels as a vital necessity. Wireless stations belting the world also will he erected quickly as possible. Before this is printed a Handley Fage machine wall have flown from England to India in a test trip. This is but preliminary to permanent air traffic to Egypt, India, South Africa Canada likewise will and Australia, be linked up with the mother coun try. The rigid airships which Britain now possesses can cross the Atlantic, given favorable weather. But It Is the airplane that is being developed for overland routes. Godfrey Isaacs, brother of Lord Britain's ambassador to Reading, America, is head of the Marconi Wlre Isaaçs is less Telegraph company, simply waiting for peace, which will remove certain restrictions, to expand British wireless stations. Stations in China. Two stations will be erected In distant parts of China. Receiving ap paratus will be installed on all pas senger-carrying airplanes, so that mes be sent back and forth sages may while the flight is in progress. Hence a business passenger who may tire of the scenery or have bright ideas about his business may get in touch with his head office boy or assistant manager, as the case may be. Thus, as it is feasible to wireless ships of the sea, so it will be possible to wireless ships of the air. The two new wireless stations in China will be installed with the help Instead of requiring of airplanes, several months to send machinery to Cashmere and the Chinese side of Si beria, locations of stations by wagon, for there are no railroads, the ma chinery will be taken In Handley Page airplanes. Thus, in such ways will the distant parts of the world be linked up with modern times. GETS LIMIT FINE OF $500 "Frankness Should Not Go Unreward ed," Is Comment of Court in Soaking Suspect.
