splendid condition now, when they would be
thin 'if at all ; grass has an early start, and
the indications are that the beef shipping sea-,
son will open much earlier than . usual.. All
the companies . are buying young stock lib
erally in Texas, Arizona and New Mexico for
shipment to their ranges here, notwithstand-
ing the fact that they are compelled to pay
about $2 more per head than a year ago.
Badger Burglars.

scene last night of a robbery. The thieves,
who, from their work, were evidently profes
sionals, entered the dry goods store of Hin-
rlchs & Thompson and robbed It of goods to
the value of $1,000. The men were evidently
experts in their line, as only the very best
goods in the store were taken.

Two Delegations Will Be Present.-
One Favoring Aid. Wolf, One
W. J. Preston.
When the Democratic city convention meets
this morning at 10 o'clock in Market hall,.
there will be little or nothing for the com
mittee on credentials to do. So far as the
Globe, could learn last night, only one
contest is in sight, and that is from the
Eighth ward. William J. Preston, candidate
for alderman, will claim that his delegates
were elected ln every precinct except the
Ninth, Tenth, Thirteenth and Fifteenth. The
Wolf men assert that their delegations have
been elected in every precinct except two,
and possibly three. This contest should be
easily settled, and satisfactorily to all sides,
because there are many men on the contested
delegations who are not pledged to any can
Chagrin over the delay or carelessness In
announcing the primary polling places gave
way yesterday to an earnest and determined .
feeling that reliable men must be elected as
delegates to the convention. What was de
nounced as "cowardly secretlveness" on the
part of the city committee had the effect of
spurring to extra effort the advocates of
fair, open methods and the strictest honesty
in dealing with the voters. As a result, in
many Instances written ballots were substi
tuted for the printed ones, and the delegates
who can be relied upon for a fight in behalf
of good men are numerous enough to hold
in check, even if they cannot outvote, those
who may feel Inclined to do dangerous
Yesterday's primaries were not regarded in
the serious way they deserved. Everywhere
expressions of dissatisfaction were heard that
due public notice had not been given, as en
joined by law. In the strong Democratic
wards this feeling was especially noticeable,
and denunciation of the committee was rather
the rule than the exception. In some cases
notices of the primaries had been found posted
in out-of-the-way places, and in very few
instances could they be found at all, even
after diligent search. The chairman of the
city committee claims to have in his posses
sion affidavits- certifying that notices were
posted, as required by law, but this assertion
does not tally, with the reports of Interested
j voters,* who sought to ascertain where the
primaries were to be held. In a great many
Instances a few voters met at the regular
polling places and organized primary boards
of their own; but in very few of these places
was the vote large, or even fairly representa
tive of 'public sentiment. Consequently, the
delegates who will assemble today will feel
mere at liberty to work their individual will
than is ordinarily the case. But, fortunately,
through all the feeling that has been aroused
there stands out an unmistakable resolve to
Insist on a ticket that will need no excuse and
demand no defense. Otherwise, the smothered
resentment against the violation of primary j
privileges will surely develop into a killing '
revolt. :y
As predicted In the Globe, contesting dele
gations were few. Before the time for the
primaries to open differences had been ad
justed amicably in about all the wards, and
where fights were made It was without the
accompaniment of disreputable tactics. Be-
low will be found a complete list of delegates
who will. participate in the convention: .
The primaries resulted In the choice of the
following named delegates to the city conven
tion, which will meet at 10 o'clock this morn

The Sixth ward is entitled to sixteen dele-
gates. As far as could be learned between the
hours of 5:30 and 7 p. m.,. when the primaries
were being • held, ■„ there were few contests,
though the delegation will be far from har
monious. For Instance, the Seventh precinct,
which elected ' Michae l." Moriarity without a
contest, has sent a delegate to the convention
who will not support Aid. Krieger, but who
will vote for J. J. Parker for mayor.
i There was - evidence ... of a contest In the
Eighth precinct, in which Thomas F. Tierney
defeated William by a vote of 10 t0. 4.
Mr. Tierney 'goes to tho convention unln-
structed. He will vote for any straight Demo
crat for alderman before supporting Aid. Krie

There was a contest in the Twelfth precinct
between W. J. McAndrews and M. Stoneken,
It was so close that a dispute arose as to the
result of the election, both candidates claim-
ing the victory. The latest returns indicate
the election of McAndrews, who will not sup-
port Krieger. yV—

The Republican clans were not losing any"
time yesterday in the endeavor to get to-
gether. Doran's "regular" machine men and
the new Castle machine have found that they
must reckon with the Warren people; and
the difficulty of this task will not be made
any easier by the Democratic determination "
to put forth a" good ticket. It was thought
that Warren would quit before this, but when
McCardy began to flirt with the Fifth warder
his earnestness commanded more attention.
Fred Schiffmann's boom Is also a disturbing :
factor; and, altogether, the Republican fac
tions are in a very perplexing tangle at the
present moment.
. One encouraging thing for the Democrats Is
that no slate has even been talked of for the
assembly ticket. The excellence of the one
to be chosen will only be limited by the will-
ingness of capable men to serve the city and
the party. This was made especially manifest
by a meeting of leading Democrats, who are
delegates, at the Windsor last evening. Care
ful counsel and prudent advice will not be
lacking in the convention today; and every
loyal, • thoughtful citizen who holds a seat
therein will be Impressed with the conviction
that his task is not In any sense an idle one.

At a meeting of Second ward Republicans
At a meeting of Second ward Republicans
last evening', attended by delegates from every
precinct, a motion was adopted to present the
name of B. F. Knauft for city. treasurer. This
means plenty more trouble for the Repub
licans, as Knauft is, like Horst, a German. .
More than that, the Second ward is a Warren
ward largely, and if Knauft is nominated, M.
W. Fitzgerald is very likely to be sprung
against McCardy for comptroller, especially If
Castle's strong organization should capture
the mayoralty nomination.

Aid. Kartak's friends were jubilant last
evening over -the withdrawal of B. F. Knauft
from the aldermanic race. Evidently, they
said, the Republicans have despaired of beat-
ing him for the council.
