Pursuant to a call published last
week In The News, the Germans of
Pottawatomie county met Monday ev-
ening in the office of Kerker Bros.,
on East Main street, and organized
a German sociAy, the name of which
has not yet been definitely deter-
mined, having been left, with other
matters, to a committee. There was
a large crowd in attendance, and the
meeting was a very enthusiastic one.
Officers and committees were elected,
and the next meeting will be held in
the city hall auditorium next Sunday
afternoon at 2 o'clock.
The meeting was called to order
by C. Binder, who has been very active
in working up the proposition, and of-
ficers were elected as follows: Pres-
ident. Christ Redel; vice president,
William Becker; secretary, C. Binder;
treasurer, Charles Kerker.
Executive committee; L. Baumble,
B. C. Hansen, L. Koestler, Xavier
Tried, Geo. Larch Miller.
Committee on by-laws and regula-
tions, John Koch, John Gelger, Karl
Stievig, Frank Urban, Anton Herrlng-
The society Is non-political and non-
rel!giou8. Its purpose Is to promote
fellowship among the German-AmeH-1 r.evs, etc.
Charges are freely made that sev-
eral of the counties, including Carter,
Oklahoma, Woods, Woodward and
Greer, are not giving out any returns
and are being held up. After miii
night Monday word was received In
Haskell's headquarters In Shawnee
that all the leaders of the Haskell
forces would meet In Oklahoma City
today with William Murray, Bill Hen-
shaw and Ed. O. Cassldy, for the pur-
pose of storming that city and forc-
ing the returns to be given out in or-
der to stop any attempt of fraud in
case of u close vote, which seems to
be a probability. It promises to be
an exciting game before it Is finished
as both sides are confident that the
race is theirs. The attorney general
is more in doubt than the governor if
such is possible, and is a most uncer-
tain nomination between Freeling and
West. The official count of the re-
turns from the state will not be can-
vassed until next Saturday.
It is now doubtful If there were
more than 50,000 democrats who voteo
In the primaries. The democratic
managers of both campaigns expected
120,000 voters. The Cruce managers
have fallen from their first claims of a
majority of 20,000 to 3,000, and there
is left yet small room before acknow-
ledging defeat. Th«- Haskell men have
come from 15,000 to 5,000. The fact
is that the elections are close. The
chances of Haskell winning seem to be
brightening from returns from the of
flcial votes into democratic headquar
Cruce ascribes his poor showing to
the light vote cast In Oklahoma and
Haskell ascribes his to the light vote
cast In Indian Territory. Both fac
tions seem to be working on the same
doe and giving the same reasons, but
conditions are not altered for the
nomination is a matter of conjecture
until after the official count. The
senators are not known, but seem to
be in favor of Hoffman and Owen.

Turner hall with all Its accompanying
pleasures Is strong. Enthusiastic mem-

A SHOWER OF
Independence, Kan., June 11.—At 4
o'clock Sunday afternoon, when the
rain was the heaviest, a large quantity
of small stiver colored flsh, which
closely resembled mountain trout, fell
from the sky at Independence. Al-
though a few of the flsh fell in all
parts of the town, the fall was the
heaviest over the square in tho center
of tho town. So many of the fish
fell there that the catch basins, built
to carry the water to the sewers, were
clogged and the water backed up and
covered the sidewalks.
There were few people on the
square when the flsh fell, not over 20
but the report of the remarkable oci
currence spread through the town and
hundreds came out through the pour-
ing rain to see the flsh. Tho#o who
were Incredulous and refused to come
at first came later when flsh by the
pocketful were brought to them.
Nearly everybody in Independence
who wished, had flsh Sunday evnlng.
Men and womin came to the square
and picked them up oil the pavement.
Each man put a few In his pockets,
and each woman picked up two or
three, wrapped them in her handker-
chief or a piece of paper and carried
them home for Bouvenlrs. The fall
of lsh brought an exciting finish to
what had promised to be a very dull
Sunday in the town. The people were
still sitting up and talking about it
It was all new to the young people,
but there were ol dtlmers who told
of having seen frogs and butterflies
fail from the sky. There wasn't any
one, however, who had seen flsh come
down In a rain storm before.
