"WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IN CASE OF GOLD DEFLATION? In addition to the alarm with Jrtilch conservatives view changes, there Is curiosity among conservatives and radicals alike about how devaluation of the gold dollar would work out on prices.

He will thus e voting for all candidates in the state whose names appear on the ticket he chooses. There will be no squares before names. It will fte the state vote that counts, not the vote by counties; that is, if in the state at large either ticket wins the most votes the whole list on the winning ticket will be elected, no matter how individual counties go.
