M'FARLAN D'S DEATH A MYSTERY
Mother at Cedar Falls Knows of No
Circumstance' Warranting" Action.
CEDAR FALLS. Ia., Oct. 26. (3pecial.)
The news that S. C. McFarland had com
mitted suicide while on a German train

excellent education, brilliant mind und am
bitious nature fitted him for the continued
auccesses which attended his career. From
Cedar Falls he went to Des Moines to be
employed upon the Des Moines Capital and
from there to Marshalltown where he be
came owner, publisher and editor of the
Marshalltown Times-Republican. '
In his letter to his mother, written on
board the steamahia that carried him
again to duty, ne said that he had purposely
taken a slow vessel that lie might have
time to formulate his course of action In
his new career and was full of hope In hi
ability, to carry on the work. He had en
joyed an unusually happy time In Wash
ington and had received his new orders
with enthusiasm and a determination to
carry on the work to the best of hit abil
ity, at least that waa the purport of his
letter to his mother In whom he proposed
his greatest confidence.

Gets Out of it. However.
HEAVY REGISTRATION REPORTED
Cedar Raplda and Creston the Only
Unee Which Make Opposite He
turns Last Week of Ora
tory to Be Lively.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Oct. 27. (Special.) The
democrats won a slight victory In court to
day by securing- an order of the district
court here compelling the secretary of state
to place on tho official ballots the name
of George M. Pratt as democratic candi
date for state senator in the Mndlson-Adalr
district. The district is overwhelmingly
republican, so the effect will be of little
consequence. The democrats had no can
didates before the primary and four per
sons were voted for aa democrats, each
one receiving c ne-vote. . The secretary of the
state executive councjl notified the county
auditors, as required ty law, that no nomi
nation had been made., No convention was
called, but the county committees met and
nominated Pratt and asked that his name
be placed on "the ballot. Tho secretary of
state refused to do so, on the ground that
tho law had not been complied with. The
court today decided that 'the proper pro
cedure was for the secretary of state t3
place the name on the ballots and only In
case of protest could the matter go before
the Elections board.
Hoettarer Mar Remain on Ticket.
The election muddle in Scott county has
not yet been cleared. Henry Bocttger
sought to withdraw and the secretary of
state decided that he cannot withdraw
from the ticket at this time. The Intention
was to substitute another candidate. But
the secretary of Btate also pointed out
that if Boettger should file notice of re
moval from the district it would leave a
vacancy on the democratic ticket which
could be filled and It Is possible that this
plan will be pursued by the democrats In
order to get Boettger off the ticket. His
defeat Is now conceded and the democrats
wish to have aome chance to elect another.

Corporation Business le Heavy1.
The secretary of state reports that the
