Public Lands and Buildings. Issue a check
which will serve as a voucher upon which

Fight for Npeakershtp.
With Pool of Johnson county ripping
up the prairies searching for members
of the next house who are favorable to
his candidacy for speaker; Henry Oordes
of Richardson keeping a discreet silence,
though with his hands on the throttle
of a good political machine; Taylor of
Custer referring to his past services, and
Henry of Holt standing on his record
and urging recognition at the hands of
the faithful, the speakership fight is
taking on tangible shape.
With Pool's candidacy there la coupled
always the story that lie Is the especial
pride of the corporations In this scrap
and that they are for him. Gerdes of
Richardson has a large following unions

Richmond, who was mentioned for the
place in opposition to Trenmore Cone, who
seems to have' it nailed down. Richmond
is leaving no trail over the state and has
made practically no campaign. He has
been visiting relatives down In Texas.
That's what Mayor Jim did Just before he
was alnded on In the race for the guber
natorial contest. But Richmond's friends
say he would not take advice in the mat
ter. Thomas Darnell has given out a state
ment that the county option advocates con
trol the legislature, while Bob Fink, the
Personal Rights man says there will be
but seventeen men In the house pledged
to county option. Both sides claim the
senate, making It another case of both
sides winning in a contest.
There has been no talk of the organiza
tion o ft lie senate, because that is said to
be under the control of those people who
train with the special Interests and for that
reason It will be organized not akmg

laid out by the favor seeking corporations.

sets forth that a box of figs marked L.

four pounds and ten ounces, being short

In letters to the Auburn firm Paxton &

The food commissioner holds that the re
quirement to correctly label food packages

the wholesale package as well as to the re

dealers where complaints have been made
of short weight in the wholesale packavje
that such cases will be promptly refi
to county attorneys for prosecution against

of affidavit is furnished setting forth the
facts in the case.
