sides some damage being done to
thejmtqrior of the house. The
damagfe was about S150, covered

The country papers, so far as
the Tribune has learned, are
unanimous in condemning tK"e
aneff early primaries, and the Tribune
is of like opinion. There would
perhapsbo, no Bpecial objection

reason fpi it, as regards county
and precinct officers.lbutf-ijis en-
0rely vrong to precipitate tha
state election. We do not know,
who will be the candidates for
state offices mor their platfoms,
and in, the brief time allowed,
there will-be but little opportun-
ity for the voters to aot intelli-
gently. Independent candidates
for looal offiices may be expect
