Ihe legislative and council dis-
tricts :u this county have been
chatrged from what they were two
yaarB ago. The ninth district
composes till that portion of the
county south uf the line between
townships seven and eight nnrl
takes in township*, tin at:a four
of Pottawfttoinio, county, Tho
tenth district is all that
portion of the county north of
eaid line, the two precincts in
Oklahoma county having been
out out. The fifth council dis-
trict is compared Of the ninth and
tenth legislative districts. No
provision has been made by the
County Central Committee
for the selection of candidates
for the legislature at the June
primaries, but we suppose this
matter will be attended to soon,
ihe ninth district and the council
are now represented by populists
and a-united effort will be made
to restore these to their usual
places in the Democratic ranks
I'ho tenth district is represented
by Dr. Waits, a Democrat, but
who is not now a resident of the
county, mid consequently will not
be a c andidate for renomination.

and a good man should be chosen
to euceeed Dr. Waits. In this
connection wo Live heard several
