Where did the custom originate? People who like to dig these things out have tried to trace the matter back to its origin but in vain.

While the secretary of state will not dve out anv detailed information as to the expense of the primary until he has compiled the reports from all the counties, in a general way, it is estimated that the cost will be around $125,000. When the secretary of state sent out Ids list of questions covering the cost of the primary the county clerk of Shawnee county, who is a "reformer." both in politics and in method of running his olliee. thought he saw a dark, deep laid conspiracy on the part of Secretary Denton to break down the primary law. dust how the aforesaid county clerk reached that conclusion i- as much of a mv-terv as the numerous mistakes he in niiinini' his own otfice. dust the funniest, weirdest motley ou Chicago.
