Whatever the outcome may be of tha

northern state, it Is certain that the re
publicans have no hop of 'gaining a sin

changes In many of the southern state
hav practically barred the negro from

In the eoutn up to the present time a
white voter was a eyncnymous term for a
democrat. There are thoae who see In th
action of the constitutional conventlona of
Louisiana, Arkansaa, North Carolina and
the other states which have followed them
the dawn of hope for the republican party
in the south. The populists are returning
to the democratic party In every southern
state, and it la absurd to suppose that one
party can continue to exist without opposi

domination eliminated, whit men may be
expected to vote the republican ticket If
they believe in the platform and prin
cipals of the republican party. The aouth

In addition to this there Is a plan on

view to having the aame closed and city

that some of the wella used In the older
portion of the city are entirely unfit for

the health authorltlea to put a atop to

When spoken to about this matter
Mayor Koutsky said that he favored th
eloalng of all unaanitary welts, but he
would object to the closing of wells re

deemed that It would be a hardship to

City officials coincide with the opinion
of the city engineer that the number of
ahacks within ths fire limits ought to be
removed. The engineer and the chief of
the fire department both called the at
tention of the council to this matter, some
time ago, but no action was taken at th
time on account of the absence of City
Attorney Murdock. It is presumed that
Mr. Murdock will soon have a conference
with the mayor and Chief Etter In relation
to this matter and that an ordinance will
be prepared giving the city engineer or
some other official the right to remove or
cause to be removed a doxen or more of
