majority was a surprise to even his
most sanguine supporters, who had
limited it to 20,000 or 25,000. Indie
tlons now are that it will be over

Stubbs' majority was reduced from
that of two years a:;o in . cveral coiln
ties, but this was chiefly due to local
fights, and In many counties where
the regulars made a hot fight and it
was expected that Stubbs would be
closely pressed, he shows gains over
two years ago.
The exact figures in the election will
not be known until the official can-
vass is completed three weeks hem e.
From figures available it seems pos-
sible that T. A. McNeal has defeated
II. R. Anthony In the First district.
The uncompleted returns show that
Anthony has a majority of only 107,

A "Midway Carnival," vaudeville
productions, airship flights, riding and
boating devices and a band festival
fairly generalizes the many and varied
amusement attractions at the State
Pair. All attractions are high class
and the best that money can buy.
The Great Patterson Shows com-
| prising sixteen separate shows and
two riding devices will be seen in the
Amusement Park. Tile special fea-
1 ture of these shows will be the trained
animal show, consisting of well-
trained elephants, horses, lions, tigers
The two riding devices will consist
of a steeple chase and a giant Ferris
wheel. Specially noteworthy of all
the Patterson attractions will be two
free acts daily. In one of these acts,
elephants trained almost to the point
of human intelligence will entertain
the spectators. In another a man will
descend a spiral tower sixty feet high,
perched fearlessly upon a unlcycle, re- j
sembling a bicycle cut in half.
The carnival people will furnish a j
high-class baud of sixteen pieces.
"Canals of Venice," operated with
a plant costing $12,000 is on the list
of permanent attractions this year.
The plant is under construction and |
will be complete by the opening of

of interest in Venice, the beautiful j
In addition to this there will be
boating at the usual place on Fair
be lodged In a specially-constructed
aerodome on the grounds, where a
competent official will lecture on the
mechanism of the apparatus.
The Figure Eight and Carousel are
too well known by past patrons of the
Fair to require any special mention.
The American people apparently
never tire of a riding device, a fact
which amusement capitalists have laid
bold of as a permanent stock In trade.
This attraction is a permanent feu-
ture of the Fair and Is used exten-
sively through the long summer
months by young and old.
Dividing their time about equally
between performances in the Live-
stock Pavilion and in front of the
Grand Stand will be The Four lshika-
wa Japanese Troupe, The Zamora
Family, Cordua and Maud, appearing
in special vaudeville. The perform*
ances in the Livestock Pavilion will
be during the progress of the First
Annual Horse Show at night.
The Four Ishlkawa Japanese
Troupe, the world's greatest equilib-
rists, will appear in original specialty
feats far above the average vaudeville
production and without question will
be a daily delight to State Fair goers.
The costuming is oriental in the ex-
treme and especially rich in texture
The Zamora Family, clad in the
finest costumes money can buy, will
appear in a trapeze trio act This
family has attracted widespread at-
tention in both America and Europe
and is acknowledged as one of the
greatest aerial features in the world,
by first-class theaters and open air
resorts from Maine to California.

No Contests Among Democrats.
Most of the contests were within the
Republican party. Neither the Dem-
ocrats, Prohibitionists nor Socialists
had more than one set of candidates
for slate officers. The Democrats
nominated J. H. Colgan of Atchison
for congressman In the First distric t.
They had no candidate in the Eighth
district In other districts returns
are insufficient to determine the nom-
inees. The Democratic state ticket
for the November election nominated
yesterday is as follows:
For governor—George II. Hodges,
For lieutenant governor—Lot Kav-
For secretary of state—Kay L. Tay-
For plate auditor- Jonathan S. Mil-
For attorney general—T. F. Morri-

Iowa Endorses Insurgents.
Des Moines, la.—Republican Iowa
wrote herself vigorously progressive
today at a convention which was in
an uproar most of the time.
Senators Cummins and Dolliver anu \
the insurgent delegation at Washing-
ton were enthusiastically endorsed.
The new tariff law was branded as
a failure in the light of the party-
pledge of 1908.
President Taft received the most j
tepid and lukewarm endorsements.
A sop of harmony was flung out In t
the endorsement of the administration j
of Governor Carroll.
An attempt to use the "steam rol-!
let " to make the state central com-1
inlttee overwhelmingly progressive j
wan called off, presumably at the hint
of Senator Cummins.
Senator Cummins was temporary
chairman; Senator Dolliver permanent
chairman. The progressive majority
ranged close to 300 ou every question.
The resolut'ons comittee v is pro
gressive, six to five.
The foregoing is a synopsis ■ n
day's work. To It may be added
cheers and jeers, applause and lu-j

MANY MINERS ON A STRIKE
More Than 100,000 Union Men Are
Out—International Convention to
Meet in Indianapolis.
Chicago, 111.—International Presi
dent T. L. Lewis of the miners has
issued a call for an international con- ;
vention to meet in Indianapolis within
two weeks to consider the "serious 1
situation brought about by the re-
bellious action of the miners' leaders
of Illinois and the southwest."
President Lewis said that there are j
more than 100,000 members of the '
union on strike. There are about 50,- i
000 in Illinois; 30,000 in the south- !
west, 15,000 in Pennsylvania, 6,000 in ]
Ohio and 3,000 in Colorado. It is j
also possible, he said, that this list !
be increased when the present

ington expire in September.

Perhaps no amusement attraction
on the ground will attract more atten-
tion than the daily flights of the Stro-

seen a successful airship flight not-

has progressed by rapid stages in the
last few years.
The Strobel device is a dirigible air-
ship, similar to those used in the Rus-
so-Japanese war. Successful flights
were made with this machine last
year at the State Fair of Arkansas,
the Tri-State Fair of Memphis, Tenn.;

Value of Confidence
I he proverb jias it that a man's
character is no better than his creed;
the dwarf is without a creed and longs
tor none. It is the pushing man who
boasts of a creed and convictions

confidence in himself seldom comes
out at the short end of the horn in
the battle of lifj.
