WESLEY TAKES THE INITIATIVE, Results Will Determine Whether or Not It Beats the Old Caucus Plan— Watm Time in Union. The talk that is now general among the republicans of the county in favor of a primary election instead of our regulation stand-up and knock-down caucuses calls attention to the fact that Wesley, which is in many ways a model republican precinct, has already adopted a partial primary. The caucus call now issued is as follows: "There will be a primary caucus of And such like appliances of. M. Z. Grove & Son. ternoon and the engineer put on all steatn so as to make up time. When making the curve at Elmore, the yard man was seen to be giving signal for brakes. The engineer immediately turned on the air, which for some reason only worked on the engine. There was a freight train made upon the side track, and the switch being open, No. 11 slid right into the engine attached to the freight, smashing both engines and the head end of the combination car. Mail Agent Orlando Rector, of this place, and Wm. Dinsdale the express messenger jumped before the collision and were badly shaken up. Rector had his right knee dislocated and right arm badly bruised, and Dinsdale landed on his face cutting it badly. Mr. Rector informed our reporter that no one was seriously injured, but that there was a general rolling around of the children and some of the older ones in the passenger conoh, and that he is glad to como out as whole as ho did. The blame lies on no ono in particular. Dont't Go to Alaska. 102 E.

Polls to be open from 5 to 7 o'clock p. m. of above named day. " Z. S. BARRETT." Such an election as Wesley has does away with all the personal wrangling of the caucus, and if it were extended, as it is in Polk county to a vote on candidates for office, 'would allow the people quietly and peaceably to express their preferences without having to go armed in self defense. Union HUB a Hot Time. Union township had a red hot caucus Saturday evening. All sorts of reports are current, but the substantial fact seems to bo that on a test vote J. B. Jones had a majority for representative. The township was out in force. The proceedings were lively from the start. Myron Schenk offered a resolution declaring that J. R. Jones was the choice of the township, but the chairman said this was out of order until delegates had been elected. Then the election began. When half done, a motion to set aside all the proceedings apto date was unanimously carried. Finally A. D. Barr moved to select four TUo Stnto Crop Report. The weok was unseasonably warm I with much less than normal rainfall, | except in u few favored localities. The greatest excess of temperature was registered on the lust two days of the week, causing some apprehension of damage to crops by hot winds; but a change of wind direction and lower temperature on tho night of August 1 relieved anxiety on that score. The week wus favorable for work in tho harvest fields and satisfactory progress has been made. The harvest of oats and spring wheat is completed, except late seeded Holds in tho northern districts. A good deal of stocking has been done, and threshers are at work in all sections, with varying results as to yield. The harvest season as a whole has been much more favorable than last year, and the bulk of hay and grain has been secured in excellent condition. Corn has made fairly good progress during the week and substantial gains during July. Reports received from the larger number of crop correspondents of this bureau show tho average condition of corn on August 1 to be 80.5 per cent as against 76 per cent July 1.
