.870, or only 125 more than In 1302. Of this

(From a Staff Correspondent)
DES MOINES. Sept 27. (Special.) The
chairman of the republican state commit
tee went to Davenport this evening and
tomorrow he will meet with the republican
leaders of the Second congressional dis
trict for a conference on the political situ
ation. In the evening a similar conference
will be held In Burlington for the repub
lican leaders of tho First congressional
district. This will close the series of con
ferences held by the republican state com
mittee preliminary to the state campaign.
Chairman Spenco and Manager Dawson of
the speakers' bureau, who have attended
all the meetings held In the state, declare
that tho meetings this year have been
much better than for many years, and. In
fact, no such excellent meetings have ever
been held; that. the Interest Is good and
the feeling among republicans Is that they
desire to enter at once upon an active
campaign, and that they are better pre
pared than usual for an aggressive cam
paign. Chairman Spence attributes this
largely to tho fact that the republicans
are already looking forward to the presi
dential year and are zealous for harmony
and good work because of the approaching
presidential campaign. An Innovation this
year has been that the candidates for the
legislature and members of congress have
been Invited to tho conference, and they
have added Interest to the meetings. The
demand for speakers Is said to be as great
this year as two years ago, and It Is ex
pected that Governor Cummins will speak
In every part of the state during the next
thirty dnys. He Is now ready to enter
upon Ms campaign, having had an auspi
cious opening last night. He will speak
next Tuesday evening ln Boone and
Wednesday afternoon in Fort Dodge, and
other dates will be mado for him.
The members of congress will also speak
generally this year, and also the senators. I
In this district Congressman Hull Is plan
ning for an active campaign In every
county, though there Is only one county
In which the democrats have a fighting
Democratic Kspeptatlona.
The expectation of the democrats thfs
year Is that they will greatly reduce the
republican majority on the state ticket,
and thus get themselves In fighting shape
for a vigorous campaign next year. They
do not expect to elect any of their state
ticket, but dov believe they will be able
to make some Inroads In the legislature
and have a better standing there. The
fact that Governpr , Cummins two years
ago received over 83.000 majority was
largely due to the fnct that many demo
crats voted for him and the vote was un
usually light for an election for governor.
With the democrats thoroughly united and
making a much more aggressive fight this
year than two year ago, It Is regarded
as certain that the republican majority
will be reduced materially., so that If It Is
held up to even-half what It-wa then It
will be due largely to the personal qualities
of Governor Cummins. Mr. Sullivan Is al
ready out on tho stump and having good
meetings. . ' , '
Change la Jnry System.
The judges of the district court In this
county, In view of the recent disclosures
In the matter of attempts to influence
the juries In this county, are preparing
to urge a radical change ln the method of
selecting juries, favoring the commissioner
system. They will urge that the present
method be discarded and that a commis
sion be selected by each court, composed
of reputable citizens, to make selection of
the jurymen of all classes without regard
to location or politics. They believe that
this would result ln getting much better
Jurymen thnn under the present system,
which Is a lottery.' The grand Jury of the
county has not as yet Indicted any of the
persons accused by a bar committee with
tampering with the Juries, but the investi
gation Is going on.
Preparing; for Convention.
Preparations are being made for the

The South Omaha sheep market 'Is still
attracting: attention all over the west. So
far this year there is an Increase in re
ceipts of BO.OOO head of sheep as compared
with the same date lust year. Up to Satur
day night 1,040,6.13 head of sheep had been
yarded here. More big shipments are com
ing In today and preparations have been
made for tho handling of all that arrive.
J. A. Egbert, a ranchman living near Suit
Lake City, arrived laat evening and said
he would have a big shipment on the
market today. He is bringing In sheep from
the Snake river valley In Idaho, where
feed Is considerably cheaper than ln Utah,
and for that reason a great many ranch
men run their flocks In the,valley8 of Idaho
instead of Utah and Nevada.
Sheep dealers In the west say that last
winter was disastrous ln many ways, but
that this winter preparations will be mado
to care for the bands of sheep not ready
for market and every effort will be made
to cut down the loss to the lowest possible
South Omaha Is now considered the larg
est sheep market west of the river and
second only to Chicago. A great deal of the
shipments : formerly made to Chicago are
coming to this market now, since the new
barns and the covered runways have been
built. Packers here say they can hardly
secure enough sheep for the demand. The
demand for feeders holds good and thou
sands of sheep have been sold to farmers
in this neighborhood to be fed for a few
months, when they will be marketed.
