One of the most serious fires which has visited this city for some time broke out about 11 o'clock last night In the store of the Syndicate Trading company In the Be'no-Shugart block, running from Main to Pearl streets. The Arm carries a stock of 'dry goods estimated In value at from $6,000 to $10,000, and this was practically entirely consumed.

When the fire was first discovered It had gained great headway and by the time the fire men arrived the entire Interior of the store waa ahlase. The fire Itself was con fined to this one store, but water and smoke did considerable damage to stocks In adjoining stores. Culver & Woodbury, dry goods, to the south, occupy a large double store, like the one where the fire originated, running through from Main to Pearl streets. The stock on the main floor Is damaged by smoke and that In the basement by smoke and water.

To the north, Pearson Bros., dealers In draperies and upholstering goods, suffered from smoke. Their ' stock Is valued at about $2,000 and most of the goods are ruined. . Still further to the north the wholesale grocery stock of Stewart Bros, on the sec ond floor of their building Is damaged by smoke. The loss on the building will not be great. With 'the exception of the Syndicate Trading company It Is stated the losses are fully covered by Insurance.

He waa seen about the city tarller In the evening,' but could not be located later. Until he Is seen It will not bo known defi nitely what was the value of the stock or the amount of Insurance carried. None of the employes of the company seen last evening was willing to venture an opinion on either point, but those familiar with the stock placed its value all the way from $3,000 ' to $10,000. No one Is able to state how the fire started. When first seen it had gained great headway and appeared to have made the most progress on the Pearl street side of the main floor.

The republican primary election was held to day. It was quieter than anticipated and yet had feature of Interest.

The compact to have a harmonious primary with only one set of judges wss kept, though on the opening of the polls the compact came near being broken and chaoa precipitated by action at one precinct. One of the Judges was not on hand promptly, and the city committee filled the vacancy by placing on a man which would give the full control tn that ward JLp the Mattern men. Aa that was the city hall precinct and a close one, there waa trouble until a change was made. Other than this the day was quiet, save that It more nearly resembled a national election than a local fight, so Intense was the seal of the parti sans. The opposing candidate for fnayor were George W. Mattern and John MacVlcar. The other candidates through the ticket were: City Solicitor W. H. Bremner. , City Knglneer John W. Budd. City Auditor John B. Lucas. N City Treasurer Harry F. Gross. -Police Judge W. A. Trie. City AssesHor Allen C. Morrison Jacob G. Heck, Charles W. Schramm. Park Commissioner I. Compton, Sidney A.

The primary election resulted In the se lection of Mattern for 'mayor over Mac Vicar, Mattern having eighty-two of the 140 delegates to the city convention. The vote is about evenly divided between the two men. Nearly 10,000 vote were cast, which 1 far more than the republicans have In the city. .

A white man and negro entered an East side booth where the judges were counting the ballots and the negro ran out with a hand ful of the ballots.

A man had been ar rested and fined for allowing two dogs to run at large unmuzsled In the town. The district court had released the man on the theory that the laws of the state do not authorize any such measure to prevent dogs running at large and that the only remedy for dogs running at large Is to provide for killing them. The supreme court take the opposite view and declares that a jlown.or city may fine the owner of dogs that are allowed to run at large and the ordinance was therefore legal.
