There is Plenty of Talk but
a Great Deal of Difference
This is the Question that is
Asked a Ihousand Times
a Day and Without
. an Answer.
The condition of politics is becom-
ing more tangled each day and the
wildest kind of speculation is in pro-
gress while the general public and
even the wisest politicians are trying
to figure out what is going to happen.
Somebody appears to be more than
anxlous to keep Magoffin out of the
race but just who that "somebody" Is

eral public and a matter of mere con-

Were it not currently reported on the vention meets and the nomination of
streets that a coldness has sprung up
between Mr. Magoffin and Mr. More-
head and that the latter is very anxious
to have the office of mayor there would
be absolutely no explanation to offer
But it seems that some one who Is try-
ing to force Magoffin to stand aside
and Is making every effort to frighten
him out of the race Is responsible for
the paragraphs which are now appear-
ing and which have the dual effect of
intimidating and of exciting public
sympathy for Magoffin.
If street talk is worth anything then
it Is well known that Mr. Morehead
wants to be mayor. He is pathetically
anxious to gratify an ambition of long
standing but fears it is said to come

Some democrats while favoring Mr.
Morehead are tired of waiting for him
to declare himself.
It is also asserted that a large sec
tion of democrats will vote for A. Kra-

fight for the office should Mr. More-

race he also will announce his candi-
This may in a measure account for
the seeming timidity of Mr. More-
head. He is probably well aware of
the intentions of Mr. Krakauer.
A Pretty Story.
There is a pretty little story going
around of how Mr. Morehead is to cap
ture the nomination just as an ardent
but timid lover captures a shy and
blushing damsel. The story as told to
a Herald reporter is as follows:
Tn- vinr0hoi in tn n tn California
soon. While absent he is to be nomi-
nated by the democratic convention and
a telegram sent conveying to him the
information. He will decline to ac-
cept but some of his friends here will
take the responsibility of accepting for
him and then the campaign will be
pushed with vigor."
It is the intention of Mr. Krakauer
to run on the republican ticket in case .
he is forced into the race and he has
no objection to staying out until a
week before election day should the
democratic nomination be postponed

In the presence of over 6000 people the negro was burned at the stake.
The mob was utterly frenzied and while an effort was made by law abiding
people to hurry the wretch away to Hillsboro. it was unsuccessful and he paid
the penalty of lynch law.
