K --The probate work, the count board business and the revenue depart ment of the county clerk's office are o such vital importance that It is gener ally conceded they should be in charg of those who are familiar with sue affairs--special knowledge therein be ing an absolute necessity. A candidate for this office who seek support simply for this, that or an reason other than because of his quali fications, thereby writes himself clow ae a person who has no conception o the duties of the position, every one o which Is p u r e l y ministerial in charac ter and never Judicial. It will not be disputed that I know the duties of the office in all its branch PS, but I also know and appreciate th responsibilities and the really har work of the place, and though m: name has been much used as a prob able candidate for the Republican nom i n a t i o n for clerk this fall. I have mad little effort to attract attention as i candidate. I am aware that my friend fll the truth when they say I am not a ood politician or mixor, and not at al expert in the game of politics. I con fess that I am not "at home" In a cam paign for office. However there are oth er reasons which have been prenentei to me which induce, me to announce thai. I am a c a n d i d a t e for the RepubH can nomination for county clerk at thi September primary, and I hereby ask for the support of those who believe me. proper and desirable material for th place, and capable or rendering the kind of service wanted in such an office.

July 9.--Wheat weakened today under a general rush of selling due to the large crop indicated by the government "report. Fine weather northwest counted also against the bulls, and BO, too, did lower cablw. Country acceptances on overnight bids were reported liberal. The market opened %@?ic down and showed additional lessen before there wat any reaction. Advices of serious injury from black ruet in South Dakota led later to «. relatively firm feeling. The cl«*« Was unchanged to ^4®!4c lower. Bullish construction of the tov«rn- ment report as to corn gave- that cereal a. decided lift. Crop damage com- platne from the southwest helped the advance. Profit taking by longe, however, wiped out all the eain In the July option. The opening wa« % to l@Hic higher, but deferred month* as well BB July underwent a setback lst«r, though not to complete a« for the current delivery. A fresh upturn reports that Illinois corn was firing. The close was atrong % to 2*4c net higher. Gate rallied because of corn strength. At first price« reflected the bearish aspect of the government report. Higher quotations for hos* carried provisions upgrade. The market was also affected by the bulge in corn.
