For ever a month or more the member
of the Live Stock exchange and the packers
have been agitating the question of a sub

First and Second, Wards Kara Dele
gates to Be Voted on at the ,
Republican caucuses were held In tbe
First and Second wards last night and
fourteen more candidates for delegates
to the state convention were placed In tbe
field. As both csucuses were well attended
and fairly represented tbe republican sen.
tlment of tbe two wards of the south end,
tbe delegate tickets nominated last night

primary election to be held next Friday.
Both delegations are uninstructed in re
gard to the gubernatorial candidates.

bauer acted as chairman and. after the

motion, but it prevstled by sn almost
unanimous vote. Clyde Sundblad, Dr. W.
Hancbett, William Hutton. J. M. Rt11o

committee, and in a. few minutes they re
ported tbe eleven names to the caucus.
from which tbe following seven were
elected as the delegate ticket by ballot:
W. Coleman, S. W. Scott. A. M. Back.
George Cathroe, Frank McDonald, I. S.

owlng were named for delegates to the

The canceling stamp was turned over to
Razee in 189G, at which time tbe postofflcs
st Curtis was of the fourth class. Indeed,
tie sales of stamps scarcely warranted the
maintenance of an office there at all. There
bad, been a partial drouth for two or three
years; times were hard, and about half tbs
population of the town had left for more
favored parts. Then, one day, Razee re
ceived a letter from the postal authorities
at Washington calling his attention rather
brusquely to tbe fact that there bad been
a falling off in the receipts of bis office. It
was then be decided to boom the sale of
stamps. It would serve a double purpose

A few weeks later be repeated tbe opera
tion, and after the lapse of another fortnight
again repeated it. Tbe result was that in
six months his office was advanced to tbs
third clasa, and his pay was Increased from
$30 a month to $66 a month. .
Even then be was not discouraged id
well doing, but made a payment on a farm,
all In 2-cent postage stamps.
About this time ths postal authorities at
Washington began to prick up their ears.
Somehow tbe stamp sales were out of pro
portion with the stamp cancellations. There
was a disparity somewhere. Things didn't
look right. ' Postofflce Inspector J. D. Sin
clair of Omaha was sent to Curtis to in

The remainder of (the story was told in
the nsture of a confession by Rasee to
District Attorney Summers Friday. A more
detailed account, however, la given by In
spector Sinclair, whose version Is as fol
lows: 'After Razee bad been postmaster about
a year be fell In love with a young woman
of about 18, named Tlllle Hartwell. She
did not reciprocate his affection, however,
and try as he could be failed to elicit an
affirmative answer to bis proposals of mar

as ingenious as his plan for raising ths

Simon Legree Gets In.
'Asked why It was nacessary for blm to
buy so many stamps, be answered: "I
was robbed of stamps twice In a few
months, and I bad to buy fresh stamps
In order to accommodate my customers.
The first time I was robbed of $200 worth
of stamps by a member of an "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" company that played an en
gagement In Curtis. It was the fellow
who plays the part of Legree. I put the
marshal on bis track, and when he saw I
knew of bis guilt be came to my garden
one night and buried the $200 worth of
stamps at the roots of a gooseberry bush."
Razee said be secured a divorce from his
wife because be discovered that she loved
ber stepfather better than she did blm.
As there Is a law prohibiting tbe use
of stamps as money by postmasters, Razee
was Indicted by the last federal grand
Jury. Friday he confessed bis guilt, and on
account of bis sdvanced age the lowest
possible fine $50 was Imposed. Razee re
turned to Curtis Friday night.
SAYS HIS LIFE IS MENACED
Attorney Swears Opponents Threaten
Hint for Proaecntlna Mayor
MINNEAPOLIS, June 7. There was a
sensational Interruption of the trial of
Irwin A. Gardner In Judge Harrison's court
this afternoon, when County Attorney
Smith submitted an affidavit setting forth
that his life had been threatened because
of bis participation in the prosecution.
The affidavit mentions tbe name of Mayor
Ames as one of those anxious to stop
pressure of tbe case against Gardner, who
as a special police Inspector is accused of
having accepted a bribe to protect shark
gambling establishments from police Inter
ference. Chief of Police Ames, a brother of the
mayor, is also under indictment.
Previous to tbs springing ot this sensa
tion Mayor Ames was on tbe stand ss a
witness for tbe defense. He swore that he
bad never received the $500 which Ed
wards snd Crossman, confidence men, bad
sworn they had paid to Gardner to give
them protection, but his mind was blank
on, many things of vital Importance. He
could not explain wby he had appointed
Gardner a special officer without pay, but
said be revoked tbe - appointment two
months after it wsa made. He could not
explain why there was no allusion to this
step in the records kept by bis secretary.
Tbe point is, if Gardner's commission
was revoked before the commission ot the
alleged crime, bs cannot be convicted ot
having received a bribe as an officer ot
tbs police department. This would make
a technical defense.
