Dec. 7.—^The Kansas primary cost about $135,000. aoording to an. estimate made by C. E. Denton, secretary of state, Saturday. Some time ago Mr. Denton sent out blanks to each county clerk asking for a de-. tallM statement about the cost of the primary. Bnonj^ of these have been returned to make the foregoing estimate. The cost Is running from 11.200 to $4,000 In each county. "These reports are surprising in the variations." said .Mr. Denton Saturday, "in Wyandotte county the cost was about $4,000. In Sedgwick county It was $1,600. There Is not a difference In these counties In population sufficient to inake this difference nl cost. 1 asked about the cost of printing the notices of primary. In the official papers. Some report this cost at only $10 or $15 and others report this cost to be $50 to $100. "These variations are so extreme as to be ridiculous. I am preparing some recommendations to the legislature about the administration of the primary. I Intend to ask for definite flgures on printing ballots and notices and poll books, l^ere Is a medium price for which this work can be done at a reasonable profit to the printers, and It will make the cost uniform throughout the state. I don't know how these great variations in cost came about, but 1 am sure that these extremes sboald not be tolerated There are also a few details of reports and the sending out of certificates and contests that need remedying and I will note these in my recommendations to the legislature. FIRST BANK CLOSED DOORS Springfield Instltation in Hands of Exsmfaier—Had CapiUI of ilWMMO. Springfeld, Mo.. Dec. 7.—The National Exchange Bank, one of the larg est financial institutions in Springfield did not open \ts doors this inoming.

J. M. Rodgersi superintendent of the mnnicipal sas ij^rtment, has bis 'Jlrish up." Too many people have been disconnecting and connecting gas stoves withoht permits. Sometimes they leate withodt.paying & delinquent gas bill, too. and that makeis Mr. Rodgers angry. And,then there are people who will disconnect a stove, stuff an old rag in the pipe and- let'it go, the gas and the gas bU go at that., This makes Mr. Rodgers furious. So he has started a campaign which will do much to cause the habit of connecting or disconnecting gas stoves with legal process, fall into disfavor. The first victim was a woman. She was before Judge Collins la police court this morning. She admitted Uiat her memory was poor. Came up town especially to get a gas permit and forgot to get It. Wlien she got home, it was too much trouble doubtless, to go back to town to attend to such a small matter as a gas permit, so she had a man disconnect her slot* without due authority for tlie city. A gas inspector learned of the occurrence and a warrant for the woman's arrest was Issued. She plead for leniency and Judge Collins was kind in this Instance, though be may grow hard hearted if too many cases come up. The fine was $3 for the first victim and a promise to raise for those who fall to takfe wolmlng. I'm also after those fellows who. when moving a family, merely go to a stove and tear It up as they would a carpet." J. M. Rodgers, gas superintendent, said this morning. "[ find cases where the stove is simply Jerked up from Its moorings and the gas left to escape throagh the open pipes. I'm going to make, things Interesting for this class of people."

Broderson, of Lyndon, Ks.. passed through lola Sunday morning In charge of the body of: Ed. Broderson. a brother, who lived in this city and who dropped dead Friday night iif Channte while attending a bowling contest as a member of the Tola team. The body was taken to Lyndon where burial wni be made. The brothers Broderson said that the funeral would be either Monday or Tuesday morning, they were not certain which. The family home is six miles out in the country from Lyndon and the time of the funeral depended much on how time could be made. It is probable that A. and J. Broderson will comee to lola the latter part of the week to take up the business affairs in which the late brother was interested.
