Abs'":tee voting and the primary law today will form the two most im portant subjects for discussion by tiie county -rks who are holding their tenth annual convention in the Cap? this w -k. Th'; clerks, as an organization frown upon the absentee vote and likewise the pi" nary law in its present form, accord .ig to the statement of D. 13. Kunkei, assistant secretary of the as sociati.r., who is county clerk in Holt County in the extreme northwestern part -f the State. "It is quite probable that the clerks will go on record in some manner against the absentee voting provision," he said- "I lielieve the concensus of opinion among the. members of the association is that it burdens the county with an addition;.! expense, without reflecting any real sentiment of the voters. We have had the law in operation in two elections and 1 And that the ratio of Democrats to Republicans in the regu lar ballot box is virtually the same as that which obtains in the count of the absJitee vote. "In addition to the expense that it create, it readily lends itself to fraud in elections. In the lirst place, the ballots aie absolutely at the mercy of the clerk of the County Court, who may count them in any manner he chooses, if He is unscrupulous. "In the second place, there is no challenge for a vote at the place where the voter Is known and that is the featur- that most readily lends itself to f raud. "A 'nan might go to several coun ties in a day and vote as an absentee voter in each county, taking a dif ferent name each time, and there is no way of challenging the vote at the county he gives as his home, as long as he makes oath that he is a quali- lied voter." In taking up the primary election, the clerks declare that the primary creates much needless expense to the countv, but they say there has been no remedy offered. They do not stand m favor of going back to the former con vention idea. Another ballot reform that the clerks pxnrossed in favor of was having the names of the presidential candidates placed on the ballot instead or me iid.Titial electors, me names m i- fami'y is wealthy and prom- inent and the nr.nounc-mT.t that the members, had been implicated in his disappearance caused a pronounced WILL RUSH MATTER THROUGH THIS YEAR Defects in Original Bill Will be Corrected and Slrike Will be Prevenled.

Speak's wager was made Thursday w hen the final outcome of the Wilson Hughes race still remained doubtful. He made the bet with Marcella Temple, who agreed at that time to perform a similar feat with a crow bar and similarly apparelled, if Wil son should be defeated by Speak's per sonal candidate, Mr. Hughes.

He has served long enough was the excuse he gave for his announcement to retire from public life. Congressman Ru.-sel! is said by many Democrats to be the only mem ber of his party in this di.-trict who could be elected to Congress. The dis trict is normally Republican, except when Joe J. Russell runs. Many Re publicans vote for him in presence to a member of their own party. Congressman Russell was instru mental in getting the new post-office for this city, and as a member of the Legislature he worked for the Cape Normal School. Although he is a par tisan Democrat, he is a close personal friend of L'ncle Joe Cannon, and Wil liam K. Rodenberg, Congressmen from Illinois, and Republican leaders in the lower house. Hecause of .Mr. Roden berg's close friendship Tor Mr. Rus sell, he avoided n aking a political speech in this city during the cam pagin. Mr. Russell possesses a letter from Uncle Joe Cannon, expressing the hope that the Charleston man would be returned to Congress. Although close Democratic friends of Mr. Ru sell urged him to use the letter from Ronlenburg and Cannon during tre campaign, he declined to do so. The retirement of Mr. Russell is cer tain to precipitate a Democratic mara thon. Robert War.l of Caruthersville will be a candidate as will Senator Ely of Kennett.

Richards was slashed across the stomach, nad when he was brought to the hospital in the Cape the night of the cutting, it was be lieved that his wound would be fatal. He was able to tell but little of the story at that time, but yesterday, he had recovered from his wound suffi ciently to be in court and tell his story to Judge Wilier. He testified that the actual cutting was done by the brother of the man who was arraigned yesterday, Robert Surlett, who never has been appre hended by the officers. George Surlett, however, was charg ed with aiding him in doing the cut ting. The evidence to prove this fact wa3 not sufficient, Judge Wilier ruled, and allowed Surlett to go. Surlett was represented by Attorney K. C. Spence of Eloomfield. The officers still are looking for Robert Surlett. who is charged with assault.

Gard ner in the belief that it means four social seasons on a scale the capita! has not known since the administra tion of Lon V. Stephens from I!7 to IDOL The capital has heard that Mrs. Gardner is a gracious hostess and that she is known for the splendor of her entertainments. It knows that she has the money to entertain on any scale she pleases. There has been little social life at the executive mansion for several ad ministrations, entertainments Iwirig confined for the most part to a few large receptions each year the Legisla ture was in session, one large ball and family dinner parties. To the large af fairs the rule has prevailed that the invitation to the public was general and anybody was welcome, dinner all members of the Legislature, of whom there are 176. Usually they are invited in small groups. Following the Stephens administra tion came that of Gov. Dockery. Mrs. Dockery died soon after her husband became Governor and there was no social life at the executive mansion for several years. During the administration of Gov. Folk entertainments at the mansion usually were musicales to which were invited music lovers. Mrs. Folk did not go in for society very extensive ly, nor did her successor in the man sion, .Mrs. Hadley. Durinc the present administration much of the social life of the admin istration has been transferred to St. Louis, where Gov. Major frequently was the guest at society functions. Few were given at the executive man sion, however.
