FJUCK TWO ctm. iMARYCOSTm nUS WAS EXPENSE IN ALLEX COUNTY OF FIKST TEST. WRITE ALL COUNTY CLERKS SECKETAlSY QF STATE ASKS EACH FOR COST OF SYSTEM. Th« PoUticiaDB Think They See In It the BesinBin? of a Fi^tat to ' Repeal Uie Latr. At the request of C. E. Denton, sec• jnXJtrf'ot state, the county clerks of Kaasas are aendins him the cosu of t)ie primary held August 4th in their reapeeCIve counties. County Cleric Gnlbiertaon last evening flnished the work ot gathering together the dif- itrent Items of expense and found that the primary cost Allen county tl,S49.S0. Only a few Items were estimated, the rest being the actual flcnret. Before the primary was held, it was eatlipated that it would cost from 1800 to 11 ,200. The following Is a complete list of the questions em bodied in the request for informa . tlon sent out by the secretary of state to • all county clerks: "What was the cost in your county ot publishing for three consecutive weeks in your offlclal county paper notices of offices for which candldalrs were nominated? TWIiat were sheriffs rhargOH for VMOMi notices of primary, etc.. In tfitie pfaces in each voting precinct In the county? "Wliat was the cost of publishing for three coDsccutlvo weeks in your oOlolal county paper list of persons for whom nomination papers were filed as per certiflcateR from this office as well as per nomination papers filed wltk you? "Wli«t was the cost of township aM'tiltr dorks for posting notices in lBFMJal«oei~in~ each voting precinct In' M fV optinty? (If unable to get exact) nsures estimate total cost.) "Wliat was the cost of printing separate official primary ticket for use at the primary? "What was the cost of printing sample official ticket upon tinted or colored paper? "What was the cost of (1) preparing ToUag places and booths; (2) de- liverr ballots at all voting places: (3) poll' books for each voting precinct; (4) preparing and posting instructions in each precinct; (!!> three Judges of election In each precinct: (t) two clerks of election in each precinct? "What was the cost of delivering primary election returns from all precincts to you? •^What was the cost of canvassing • retnrns by county canvassers? "What do you estimate th? cost of postage, including registered mail, and all other minor and incidental ex- penres in connection with the primary law to have been in your county?" The Kansas City star says: Topeka, Xov. J S.—What is believed to be the l>eginning of a general fight on the Kansas primary law on ac eonot of Its cost came to light here today. C. E. Denton, secretary of •tate. has sent to each county clerk In Kansas a list of ten questions and asked that the answers be returned to him at once. The questions ask (or exact figures on eaci; item of cost of tlie primary last August to the •tnte and county. As aear as can foe ascertained the whole proposition is to get these fig- am (ram authoritative sources, the connty clerks who signed the voucher* fbr the bills, then compile them aad hSTc them all ready for presentation to the legislature. "f/ook what It cost," the legislature wiir be told. *^as it worth it?" it will be asked. It ha* been known that ever since tile primary law was passed that the Btaelilne crowd, or, as tney prefer to , be called, the "conservatives." have been planning to make a fight to re. peal the law at the coming legislature. How it was to be done no one had 'aajr idea until today when it was con- elosirely shown that the fight would b« on the cost of the operation of the primary. The letters and the questions were sent out last Saturday. ^Ifo one about the state house appar- eirtlj' knows anything about the list of qoesUons sent out. although it <came from the offices of the secretary or state. I.evenworth. Kas.. Nov. There is «reBt Joy among the prisoners at the United States penitentiary here, owing to the fact that pipes and to- beacco will be furnished each man desiring them on Thanksgiving day. Recently the Warden recommended to the department of Justice that it would further discipline to keep the men who smoked supplied with tobacco. His recommendation met with approval, and the order was issued. Yesterday seventy-two dozen "Missouri meerschams" were purchased, also a great quantity of tobacco. The tobacco will be used as a reward of merit, and prisoners who violate rules will be deprived of their smoking. FOR SAFE MINES. Owemors «f Sixteen SUtes Invited to Conference. . Pttishurg. Kov.

XvB; AtcMMW i« la TflW Center ^ t «|tertiddasiapaalttonBia Peking. Nov. ly.—Prince ' Ghlng, president of the board of foreign affairs, has forwarded direct to President Roosevelt a personal letter In the name of Pu Vi. the infant Emperor of China, setting forth the crisis through which the throne has passed during the last week. Similar letters have been sent to nil powers friendly to China. The coniniunicationo make an appeal for sympathy for and an nn- derstnndlng of the new rulers of China, and emphasizes the efficiency with which the events of the past week have been conducted. ' A result of the Boxer rebellion of 1900 when the foreign legations In Pekiu were In great danger, was the Cfltabiisbment of military guards. The aggregate strength of the guards of the various nations amounts to 2,400 men. It was recalled today that when the Boxer troubles were agitating China In 1900 and the feeling against foreigners especially was at a hUh pitch thp American government was Inclined to think the movement was largely local In character, ami the live southeni prAvinccs were at peace. No disturtmnces occurred In those populous provinces, the. viceroys being able to protect the foreigners within their borders. Reference Is made to this Incident in support of the argument that any uprising that might occur locally In north- em China would not have any national significance and would not necessarily have any general following because of the loyalty of the victroya in the southern provinces. ooooooooooooopooo O ADDITIONAL SHORT STORIES O O OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Icott Tribune. 1 Business picked up In the pugilistic line in lola this afternoon when Attorney J. 1>. Barnes took a punch at Judge Collins on West HBdison street. The bout was pulled off according to the rules of BlackstiAe and not the Marquis of Queensbury rules. It was entirely informal and was witnessed by a very select audience. One would expect that the fatalities would have been greater for the reason that Barnes Is red headed and Judge Collins was raised in Tennessee where fighting is anything but a lost art The trouble, one might also think, would decide the lightweight championship in legal circles In lola, but .ludgc Collins says he made no offer to strike back. Moreover, Barnes is not In training and Is a little over weight. The affair had no more than occurred when the sporting editor of the Register thoucht he scented blood and proceeded to get busy, A bystander was found who claimed to have had no money hot on either man and he gave this version of it; The trouble seems to have origin- Rted over the trial of Dr. McOranr before Judge Collins on the charge of selling Intoxicating liquors. According to the story told a reporter by the by-8tander and witnesses to the "fray" Judge Collins said that the city had a case against Henry Garner, one of tbe witnesses in the McOraw case, on the charge of perjury. Collins also Intimated, so the eye witness saya. that Barnes, who was MtiGraw's attorney, had "fixed" the witnesses. To Collin.'s's remark that he had a perjury against Garner, Barnes is said to have answered: "You have no case against Gamer. Man. don't you know that you can't convict another of perjury only In a court of justice?" "What! Do you mean to say that I don't conduct a conrt of Justice?" returned Collins. laying down the books he was carrying in his arma^ About this time the lie waa passed and Barnes shot an uppercut at Collins, striking him on the side of the head. Collins then. It is said, picked up tis books and walked away, saying that a man of his position dare not fight, on the public highway, besides he had promised his wife that ho would not fight. The affair occurred at the foot of the stairway which leads to Barnes's ioflice over the Wreckage Sale store on West Madison street. •Both Coi'ins an(J Barnes have been arrested for peace disturbance.
