Primary ia Ralls County. New London, Mo., Feb. 26. The Ralls county Democratic Central Committee met today and arranged for two county primaries, one on May 7 for the nomination of a county ticket and the other on June 11 fori state candidates. Since Friday we have heard a great deal about Kansas City. Folk damns those who op pose primaries and yet bis acts show he will not, if avoidable, face primaries.! Joe Shannon the EJ Butler of Kansas City and tirst lieu tenant of Col. Bill Phelps headed one faction and Mayor Reed favored another. Here is a dirty story, Shan non wanted a convention, Reed favored what Folk has cried for a vote by the people Here is what the St. Louis Re public, Follt organ said: 'It is well understood here that the Shannon lorces are supporters of Folk for govern or. The fiffbt against Reed is bitter aud long standing, and they have a sort of alliance with J. M. Lowe and others who are active in the tight for FolK." 'The issue between the fac tions was whether to nominate the candidate for mayor by di rect vote or by delegatt conven tion. Reed favored the former plan. Shannon the latter.' But it does not tell the whole truth for it says nothing about GAG RULE. There were twenty-eight men in the convention and only twenty seven votes cast. The Secry who would have voted tor a primary, thereby making a tie vote, was not permitted to vote. There was an agreement be tween Hawes and Folk men to hold a mass convention in the largest ball in Ulayton. School Report.
