THE NEW PRIMARY LAW
As Seen by the Papers ef the State.
Fifty-live per cent of the republicans
of the state participated in the pri
mary election. Under the old caucus
system not half that liuiny took part
in the nominating, and then it was
only indirectly. For its iirst trial the
primary is pretty successful

The lreneral concensus of imhmm .if
'the newspapers of the state is to the
effect that the new primary law is a
success. However, there are many
defects that have been demonstrated
and thoy will, no doubt, be remedied
by the next legislature. The fellows
who are objecting the strongest to it,
arc tho fellows who failed to control
their gangs as of old. It has, in a

A Kansas City young man playfully
pointed a revolver at a Denver girl,
pulled the trigger and killed her. It
is not necessary to work up a fever of
indignation brcaused he pointed a
weapon which he supposed was not
loaded. This simple question should
be asked: Why did the young man
have a revolver loaded, unloaded,
imitation, real or any other kind?
The danger in this revolver business
is not in pointing deadly weapons at
people only idiots d? that but in
carrying revolvers at all. Policemen
need revolvers, perhaps, but beyond
them the line can be drawn to include
almost no one. Lincoln Star.

Base Ball Tournament.
From the standpoint of the fans the
base ball tournoment has been a de
cided success. Good sized crowds have
been in attendance every day and they
have shown by their actions that they
appreciate a good ball game. Though
the wind has been bad up town yet it
is not half as bad on the grounds.
The tournament was opened Monday
by a game between llurr Oak and Red
Cloud which was easily captured by
the home team, the score being 0 to I.
Dennett was in the box for Red Cloud
and Coyner for llurr Oak. Ilurr Oak
did not seem to be able to laud on
Dennett's curves while, the lociil'found
Coynerat all times which, coupled with
Durr Oaks errors allowed the. locals to
score. The feature the game was the
home run made by Owens in the third
Tuesday the locals did not fare very
well as they received a set back. Durr

2. "Dad" White pitched for Durr Oak
and Schrnder for the local, the" lirsttwo
innings. In this game Hoc Nelson and
Drown made the runs in the fourth
Wednesdays game was played with
Hardy and was the prettiest games
played this week and was won by Red
Cloud scoring 7 runs as against Hardy
Thursday's game was played with
Hardy and was easily won by Red
Cloud the score standing l:t to l. In
the fourth of this game Doc Nelson
hit a redhot one out into the center
field bringing in two scores and mukc
ing a home run.
Nelson leads in batting average of
this week with a standing of 444, he
certainly had a batting Htrcak in yes
terdays game as he made four hits,
two two base hits, one single and
one home run.
Charlie Dennett has so far proven to
be as good a pitcher as we have had.
lie is credited with many strike outs
and as few hits have been made on
him us any pitcher who has been on
our diamond this season.
The games this afternoon and to
morrow promise to be the hardest
fought games of the week as Superior
is credited with as strong, if not
the stronger team, than any that has
been here and then tin feeling be
tween the two teams is pretty strong.
If you enjoy a good game of ball you
should'not miss these two games.
