GRAND ISLAND, Neb.. Sept- if. (Spe
cial.) The harvesting of the sugar beets Is
now on In full force and the local factory
of the American Beet Sugar company will
commence the campaign of 1906 next week,
when a sufficient supply of beets will be on
hand. The early part of the season was
very unfavorable owing to the surplus of
moisture, beets In low places particularly
having to be replanted. The fall season has
been quite moist also, causing a slowness
In ripening, but the entire season has been
somewhat more to the advantage of ths
farmer, the beets growing large and brvy,
meaning a big tonnage per acre, and sine
the contracts are for a flat price, regard'
less of the per cent of sugar, over a certain
minimum which only the poorest beets to
not overtake, the result of the season's
growing Is probably more in favor of ths
farmer than of the factory. However a
profitable season for both Is at this time
anticipated as the outcome of the year.

which precedes the Omaha show and has
many of the same horses, will be 75 cents.

Contest Over Nomination.
BEATRICE. Neb.. Sept.- 17. (Special. )
The certiorate of nomination of the repub
lican candidates was filed In the office of the
county clerk yesterday by Harry BpafTord.
The name of C. B. Hensley, the candidate
for register of deeds, does not appear In the
certificate and It Is understood the county
clerk has refused to file any certificate con
taining the name of any candidate for that
office on the ground that there Is no such
officer to be elected this fall. Attorney
Kauffman of Wymore, who represents Mr.
Hensley, came to town yesterday afternoon
for the purpose of making the necessary
preparations to start an act ion. In the su
preme court in the nature of a mandamus,
the object of which Is to test the validity of
an act passed by the last legislature ex
tending the time of office of register of
deeds one year and to compel Mr. Plasters,
the county clerk, to place Mr. Hensley's
name on the official ballot to be voted this
fall. The outcome of the action will no
doubt be watched with a great deal of In
terest, Inasmuch as other counties In the
state will be affected.

The democrats of Dakota county will

their ambitions well covered up, as no ef

be at sea In this county, not even having
stnt a delegate to uttend the state demo

populist party seems to have been swal
lowed up by General Prosperity. A call
for a populist mass convention was Issued
to be held In- this place last Saturday, but
not a party follower appeared ' upon the
scene, and the convention, went by default.
Neither was this party ' represented In the

by the convention and such a law should
by all means be enacted. There should be
