IOVTIL , DEMOCRACY IS TORN ASUNDER Four Diisentinp Factions Among ThoBO of the Bourbon Persuasion. EACH ONE IS AFTER THE OTHER'S ' SCALP Ihitmn .Sonic Sort nt Trnop IK Pnlchcil U | > 1'nrfr Nun-run Will lie nt the 1'olln. Local democrats are beginning to discus1 ? the coming campaign and the possible party candidates tor tbo several county offices to bo voted on this fall. Local democracy at present is not a unit by any means. In fact , tbcro arc several factions In the rank and flic. Ever slnco the Inauguration ot Mayor Jennings' administration there have been a number of soreheads among the les ser fry , consisting chiefly ot those who failed to secure recognition at the political pie counter. This fecllnc of hostility was Intensified when the appointments were made to the collco force and a number ot disgruntled and disappointed would-be pcaco officers were added to the list of malcon tents. Recently the organization of the Jeffcr- sonlan club has not tended to smooth over matters in the party , but is responsible for the formation of another faction known as the antl-Jcffcrson club gang. There Is a belief among a largo number of the rank and flic of the local democracy that the club was organized for the especial benefit of a few , chief among the few being Brooks Reed , who , besides holding the position ot city treasurer , Is also chairman ot the demo cratic c6unty central committee. Reed's op ponents In his party claim that he wants to .be czar and run the county machinery to suit himself and his particular friends. Reed , It Is Bald , has aspirations to be county treasurer , and to this end is said to bo working the Jefferson club racket for all It Is worth. The big banquet announced for the night before the county conven tion Is claimed to be simply a scheme on his part and his adherents to capture the convention body and soul. Four Dlnllnct Faction * . At present there are practically four dis tinct factions In the local democratic party , the antl-admlnlstratlon , the administration , the Jefferson clubltes and the antl-club- Itcs. Each faction , It Is said , Intends to have a ticket In the field this fall , and the demo cratic county convention promises to be a warm number , unless the trouble at pres ent existing Is smoothed over and the whlte- xvlnged dove of peace Induced to hover once more ox'cr the warring politicians. The fact that Chief of Police Blxby and other prominent members of the party xvere blackballed by the few controlling spirits of the Jefferson club has aroused consider able feeling In certain quarters , and It IB said that Brooks Reed in bis ambition to become county treasurer cannot look for any support from that quarter. It Is said that the Blxby faction will support John R. Black of Grlswold for this nomination. Sylvester Dye of Macedonia Is also said to bo a candidate for county treasurer. Some of tlic Cnmlldntcn. The nomination for sheriff will also , it Is promised , be a bone of contention among the several factions. Chief of Police Blxby is said to have set his cyo upon the of fice and feels confident that If ho can tsc- cure the nomination of his party his per sonal popularity would Insure his election over the republican nominee , no matter who the latter might be. The antl-admlnlstra- tlon faction , It Is said , will center their forces on John Mazen of Avoca , xvho Is no stranger to the sheriff's office. Hazen Is also said to bo a candidate for state rep resentative , his nanio being coupled with that of William H. Ware of this city for the other nomination. For state senator the names of Dr. S. B. Tobcy of Oakland and Dr. J. W. Hempstcad of Carson are most prominently mentioned. For county superintendent of schools It Is conceded by all the factions that Prof. Sawyer Is en titled to a renomlnatlon , and over this par ticular office there does not promise to be any contention. Dr. Waterman , It Is said , will be given the nomination for coroner as a balm to his feelings , ho having been defeated by the republican nominee , Dr. V. L. Treynor , last year. The rotund and genial L. P. Judson will secure the nomination for county surveyor without opposition , no other democrat In that particular line of business being willIng - Ing to bo offered up as a lamb to the slaughter.

The statement published In some of the pa pers that the Central Labor union waa backIng - Ing the Barbers' Protective association In Its tight lo enforce the observance of the Sunday - day closing law Is denied by the officers of the union.

PROMISE OF EXCELLENT CROPS. Outlook In .N'ovr Gooil for a Fine Yield All Itonnd. Colonel W. J. Davenport of the Burlington , xvho returned yesterday from a short trip down the road , says crops everywhere look eplendld and that the farmers arc correspond ingly happy. The prospects for corn are excellent , except that In some very low places , which have received the wash from the higher ground , the corn is not In the best of condition , but such acreage Is very small. Spring wheat , ho says , Is looking grand , the stand good and It Is heading nicely. The prospects for a big crop of oats were pevcr better and If not beaten down by heavy rain or wind , the yield promises to be the largest In the history of this section of the state , Althpugh the acreage of winter wheat Is small , what there Is of It Is in first-class condition and much of It Is being cut now. Many farmers , he says , are repenting that they ploughed up their xvlnter xx'heat , HS it has turned out so well. There Is an Immense growth of hay everywhere and the timothy is now beIng - Ing cut. Potatoes show a great growth and promise an Immense yield. There Is plenty of moisture to carry them along some time yet without any rain. Cattle In this section. Colonel Davenport saye. are getting scarce. The dry-fed stock Is oractically all gone. Hogs are unusually plentiful and In most localities free from disease. The prospects all round , accordIng - Ing to Colonel Davenport , are most encour aging for the farmers of this section of the country. Davis sells the best hammocks. Tlrnjnnilii Divorce Cnnc. The Benjamin divorce cas will hftve to bo tried in the district court here. Word was received from Des Motnos yesterday , whore the cose had been taken on a change of venue , that Judge Prouty had refused to hear it on the grounds that the cause of transfer was not sufficient. H appears that both Mr. and Mrs. Benja min were anxious to hax-e the matrimonial bond unloosened as speedily as possible , but that Judge Smith declined to hear the case at this term , as one of the rules ot this district In that no action for divorce shall foe heard or disposed of at any term unless the petition has been regularly on file xxrlth the clerk for at least ten days before the opening of the term. A change of venue was then agreed upon to a county where court was In session and where the above rule did not prevail. YotitiK Wlipplor ItolrnNril.
