There is a juicy amount o( red un-
ci otted blood on the moon in the. Re-
publican camp and razors harpoons
and other implements of warfare are
being dextrously used in the ranks of
the radicals. Every four Republicans
in the city of Guthrie it appears
want a county ofllce and no small
amount of plugging is being ilonu In
tho different wards of the city. To
night the city wards will hold pri-
maries to select delegates to the county
convention and Borao red-hot hot-stuff
will bubble to the surface.
There are nineteen Republican can-
didates for county offices in Quthrie
and but six In the outside townships.
Tho result is the country people are
very wratby and declare thai the
QuthrlftJb&9f ers-MUl bo Ignon'.mously
downed In the convention. l oTSirJH
Tipton Rhinehart Stapleton and
Crocker are working like beavers and

ter of deeds Kinoald lias tho best of
the deal looking towards tho nomina-
tion with John Rodgcrs second Oris-
wold third and Painter Furrow Car-
penter and Nelson straggling- along
behind. Por county attorney Strang
seems to have the beat show with
Huston second ami Holland Saothora
and Plokurd energetically playing for
place. A big flglil is on In the Second
ward over attorney and Holland has
tho ring badly scaled As it result bo
will receive the first ballot. The fight
is really between Strang and Soot-
horn but Strang having the support
of the business men will likely gobble
Postar Holes Goodrich all want
the nomination for probata judge.
Goodrich by working the bluff racket
hus secured sover.il score or more
pledges but Foster is roally tho only
candidate in the field since Holes is
half willing to accept the proposition
of the ward committee and draw off
tho tiolcut for the payment of u cer-
tain sum together with tho money bo
has spout in forwarding his candidacy

Miss Ilosworth Dodd and lloylo. The
latter Is not in It neither Is Smith
and Ilosworth stands the best show
for the nominuUon. ;
Dr. Slocum It Is said is willing to

Rittorbusch Mabon and Bradley aro
working like Trojans for tho nomina-
tion of treasurer. Ritterbusch lias
the beet of the go so far. For justice
ot the peace Jackson Nichols Saddlor
and five other negroes are wording for
the nomination. Morgan will bo the
.only white contestant in the conven
tion unless Boles having recoivod ills

field for justice '
Exactly seventeen negroes Want to
be the constabulary nominee and since
tho darkies were betrayed and knifed

campaign causing a lambtstal soro

attorney since tuo lloiianu iacuon
threatened to U60 his Kansas record
whllo McCabe wants no elective office
but Is willing to do what ho can to fur-
ther Painter's candidacy and receive
tho appointment of deputy rrglstor.
In tho Fifth ward tho negroes aro
oxperlcncoing the usual happy time.
Perkins is posing as tho Moses and
sometime since ho inaugurated a S25
ticket that Is ho agreed to build a
county ticket in tho Guide and placo
thereon tho name of ovcry candldalo
who gavo htm $25. Bo far Perkins has
boon successful in elongating tho limbs
of Smith 935; Huston $25; Nelson SIS;
Staplcton 815 and Atlierton 885
Greer of the Capital and other negroes
are opposing this izar-like position of
Perkins but so far Perkins aided andJ
nbottod by the uncrushable Smith has
tho juicy end of tho deal
All tho candidates aro spending
money and oozicg promises like gold-
bugs and in the majority of casus
the heolors who havo beet "fixed"
have heon kept drunk in ordor that
tboy may not bo "unfixed" before th
county convention assembles.
In tho Second ward a desperate fight
is on. That Is tho "statesmen's ward"
and every word counts. Slates are be-
ing smashed with reckless abandon
and hell is flowing down tho gutters.
Barnes and II. S. Cunningham are put-
ing up a liberty-bleeding fight to
maintain their positions.
Since Barnes wants to bo governor
and Cunningham attorney general it
Is necessary to keep tho different wards
of the city intact for futuro purposes.
Singularly enough Stono. and tho old
gang aro playing in with Barnes to boat
Speed and keep him out ot tho conven-
tion but Speed is oily and well trained
and shoots tho chutes with a divan
poise and a feathory heart. Both the
Barnes and Speed factions have built
slates but tho slato from this ward
that promises to hold If money talks
bears tho names of Holland Pointer
and Staploton. It is purposed to humor
Holland at first then ticklo Scothorn
ending in tho nomination of Strang'.
Tho big fight all over tho city Is being
mado on Huston and Painter. Painter
by tho way is the best young man
among all tho candidates and why ho
should be sacrificed is hard to under-
stand. However ho promises to de
velop some secrot strongth and fool a
number ot people. Speed is malctug
a stand on his tax cases and will ro-
cetve support on that account.
The Republican candidates have bcon
busv electioneering for over three
months and every ono has been pros
cnt at all tho negro fan langocs and
barbocuoa held In tho county. It is no
uncommon sight to see a white Repub-
lican with his arms fondly embracing
a sweating negro with tho thormom-
oter at 00 degrees Importuning his
support. Yesterday at tho negro bar-
beauo hold In East Guthrie ono hun
dred whi to Republicans wero present
and spent their monoy freely. AU the
candidates aro adopts at negro-loving
and tho negroes including Etherldgo
don't seem to mind It. Tonight tho
ward primaries will be hold and sorao
stubborn and vlolont battles aro looked
for. The country delegates according
to reports will come to tho convention
loaded for tho city heolors and a Ro-

of Director Preston during September

tion of the senate to give it effect but
Mint Director Preuton feels jnstlilod

There is some doubt whether the
actual adoption ot a now metal for
tho minor coins will be recouittiended
at an oarl.r date by the treasury of-
ficials even it the experiments proves
successful. The objection to a eliango
in nuy form of coins or notos Is tho
disposition of the public to refuse the
old forms uud insist upon having the
now. This would drive into the mints
for recoinage $14000000 in nickel
pieces which are now in circulation
aud S7o00000 in pennies. Tho ad-
vantage olaimeit for pure nickel iu-
stead of tho alloy now used in D-ccnt
nieces is its greater hardness dura-
bility and distinctness ot impression.
