Result of Tuesday's Primary Election
x Some Surprises.
TIk first pr'mury election under the
niw law was held Tuesday, and to suy
tli.it there was general dissatisfaction
would liardly describe the feelings of
the voters. The idea that a man must
eLupiiml pulilioly declare his polit
ical atlii.ations grated on many of
them, and they refused to vote at all,
while others deliberately walked up to
the judges of election and called for
tickets which they had no idea of sup
porting. We have no complaint to
make in this respect, for there are
many on both sides ot the political
fence who did the same thing. The
delay in ascertaining the result is an-
other feature of the-new primary law
wnicn win he nam to overcome. J lie
vote was not tabulated in shape so the
"newspapers could get hold of it until
the official canvass, which began at 10
o'clock Friday morning.
As was expected, a very light vote
was cast. The nominees, so far us this
county is concerned, are: ,
Vov treasurer, W. C. Trail in.

Ucd Cloud dropped a game to Cam-
bridge Thursday after it had been won
l.y an easy margin. In the fifth inning
the ftcore stood I to 1 in favor of lied i
Cloud, and it looked like a cinch for1
the home team. However. Smith gave

After having conducted one of the
hardest fights even seen in a political
campaign In this part of the country.
Klmer V. Overman of this city was de
feated for the licpuhlicau nomination
for district judge by the vary narrow
margin of two votes. Mr. .lames, the
successful candidate, won through hav
ing the support of Adams county.'the
most populous county in the district.
Outside of Adams county Mr. Overman
ran ahead of .Mr. .lames in every coun
iy in thu district, but the Adam.
county vote was sufllciclent to over
come the vote received by Mr. Over
man in the other counties. W. i Hor
sey ol liloomlngton is probably thlul
man in the race.

candidate at home, and had Webster

A hurry-upeall for a doctor was sunt
in Monday morning bysoine cmigrants
who were camped along the road about
three miles southeast of town and Dr.
Thompson answered the call and found
a woman in a very critical condition
from the effectsof too much morphine.
Antidotes were given her and after
considerable difficulty she was finally
biought out of danger ami the cause of
her condition explained. It seems the
woman had been addlucd to the use of
morphine for a number of years, and
early Monday morning she became
eraz.ed for the drug and found miiiib of
it she had in tablet form. The tablet
contained more morphine than she
thought, and later when discovered by
her husband and brother, who com
prised the company, she was complete
ly under the effects of it. It is likely
that if a physician had not been sum
moned trie woman would not have re
covered from its effects,
