In nearly every state there was a
brisk tight. In Kansas this was the
most pronounced, the atti'ltuile of
Wyandotte county being the disturb

county were sufficient to turn the tide
between .T. (J. Johnson, head attorney,
and K. K. Murphy, chairman of the
board of directors, who are rival can
didates for the head consulship. Wy
andotte county sent i:p a contesting
delegation in favor of Johnson, and
the. chairman recognized it. The
Murphy supporters then bolted, and
two camps were , held.-, The . ques

cided at the head camp.
In Iowa there wns an intensely
warm contest, and the matter of ref

the individual camps. The head otli

MAY POSSIBLY IE ENDED
The Retail Merchants' association
Moline has officially decided to drop
the agitation among business men
with the object of settling npon one
of. the telephone s-ystems to be pat
ronized exclusively in order to do
away with the expense of keeping
up instruments on both systems'.
The Moline merchants were first
to raise the question and the; Rock
Island merchants then took the mat
ter up and appointed a committee
to act jointly with the one from Mo
line. A joint meeting was had and the
whole tiling was submitted to a pul
eommittee. where it has rested since.
The Moline merchants have come to
the conclusion that both systems are
here to stay and that there is no use
trying to do away with either one.
Each will have its friends and enemies
and there is no use trying to bring
about an agreement to use anly one.
It is conceded 1hat this sort of thing
would not be wise, for the beneficial
effect of competition in the business
is manifested by more prompt and
satisfactory service and anything
that would tend to bring about a re
turn of monopolistic conditions would
in all probability lead to a revival of

There was a free show on Market
square last exening and while the
crowd was congregated a dog tight
started. It whs but a short time b
fore the show lost all interest to the
audience, for the "purps" were of the
persistent kind, and it took the good
offices of several ' persons some mo

trouble between the canines tv

on the sort of a deal the combatants
were getting. Roth the young men
were taken to the station, where they
registered and agreed to appear for
trial this morning.

The matter of beat assignments at
the police station is still unsettled
and most of the new men are still
clamoring for day work with the cen

have concluded that the life of an
officer is something else besides the
drawing of n salary and their stars
have been handed in. Those who
have passed up the job are .J. McMa

now understood that some of these
would like to come hack, but the chie
says that no dilatory work of this
kind will be tiderated.
