HE WILL NOT RUN AGAIN
FOR THE LEGISLATURE.
A Member of That Body Has No Po
litical Independence, and the Job
Is Expensive for an Honest Man
Hopes for a Great Betterment of
Conditions From Direct Primary
Law Would Like to See the Law
Governing Registration Amended.
Douglas Belts, the sheepman of Pi
lot Rock, was in town 'today on busi
ness, and while here expressed him
self on tho legislative question:
"Ono oxporienco Is enough for a
man who does not wish to bo a poli
tician," said Mr. Belts, when held up
about his reported candidacy for tho
house at the Juno election. "I will
undoubtedly 'run,' but It will be in at
tending to my own business. I have
had ono trial at It, and do not want
"I find that a man who goes to tho
legislature has to be under the com
mand of some party leader, and that
there Is no chance for him to do
what he thinks he should do, unless
ho is. It is not a square deal, and I
do not think that the right class of
men aro in tl o legislature. They are
not, as a rule, men who aro there for
tho whole good of the people so much
as for the good of themselves. And,
besides, it Is too expensive for the
little results that are obtained.
"Yes, If more men who had the
good of tho peoplo at heart would go
to tho legislature and Into politics in
general it would be better for tho
parties and the people, but as It is,
the man who goes Into it for the good
of the people alone has no show. Ho
is cut out of tho running, and either
has to follow tho lead, or his efforts
have no effects and bear no fruit.
Favors Direct Primaries.
"It may be that when tho direct
primary law goes into effect, as I
hope it will, tho people will have
moro say as to tho men they send to
represent them, and better men will
bo put In charge. When that time
tomes tho efforts of one man will be
of moro avail, but not until then.
There is one tiling, however, tnat
hur never been called to the attention
of tho people, which I think should
be, and that Is the waste of money
from the present registration sys
tem. At the present time there is a
man at the court house who is paid
a good salary by the county to regis
ter the voters of tho different pre
cincts. He is In the office all tho
time, and has nothing to do but to
register them. At the same timo
every justice of the peace In' the
outlying districts Is registering men
by affidavit, and In some cases I
think are soliciting the registration.
For each ono of these affidavits the
justice gets 10 cents. It is a small
sum, to be sure, but In the total it
runs into qulto an amount of money,
and tho little drops make the ocean
"In some states tho man who does
tho registering makes a visit to each
precinct and registers all of the vot
eis In that place on one day. In
that way he registers every one elig
ible, and there is only ono man in
tho county making a salary out of
tho business. This matter. I think,
should bo corrected. It would save
a little, and we need these little sav
ings. "Oh, yes; there are a lot of peoplo
In tho county who would like to see
me ruako the race, I know. So you
say. But don't you know that there
are another lot who would just as
leave I wouldn't? I don't lilto to dis
appoint tho latter, and besides, I
have not tho time, nor the inclina
tion. I have had all tho running I
want to, and I am not desirous of
being n politician. So I guess I will
have to stay out of the race."
ASLEEP SIXTEEN YEARS.
Remarkable Case of German
That Puzzles Doctors.
Germany has a modern "Sleeping
Beauty," who lias Just awakened
from a 10-year slumber, says tho Se
Mrs. W. P. Hutchinson. 2003 Bor
on avenue, Informs tho Star that sho
has just received a letter from her
sister in Germauq, stating that Gl-
sone Meyer, an old schoolmate of
hers, who plunged Into a deep sleep
two years beforo Mrs. Hutchinson
left the "Fatherland," has Just
awakened, after a rest of over 1G
It was a very Interestelng story
that Mrs. Hutchinson related to the
Glsene Meyer Is tho daughter of a
well-to-do resident, who was mayor
of the town of Granbko, near Bre
men, Germany. She is now about 3S
years old, and when last seen by
Mrs. Hutchinson, was a very beauti
ful woman. She had spells before,
and at one time slept two weeks.
They are supposed to bo tho outcomo
of a severe fall sho sustained while
about to enter a carriage on her way
to a ball. v.
But is said by old residents, who
are somewhat superstitions, that ner
sleep is tho outcomo of a gypsy's
curse. Tho gypsy was offended by
tho unfortunate girl's father years
beforo and ho was told that his
daughter would have a fall which
would cause her to sleep for years.
The prophecy camo true, and the
learned doctors of Germany have
been greatly puzzled by tho peculiar
case. Nourishment has been given
tho pntlent daily through her mouth,
which has been always open.
During tho girl's sleep her mother
died and her sister married and was
taken away. The letter which tells
of 'the awakening states that a great
fire broke out In tho town, and, dur
ing tho confusion, tho sleeping girl
suddenly camo out of her trance and
called for her mother. While the
father was overjoyed at hearing his
daughter's voice once more, it nearly
broke his heart, to hear her call in
vain for her mother.
The young woman remembers
clearly everything that happened -c-foro
she became Morpheus' subject,
and speaks with remarkablo force.
Mrs. Hutchinson says tho letter
states that the girl Is probably try
ing to make up for lost time, for sho
Her eyes have not yet been open
ed and it is feared that she will lose
her sight, unless tho eyes become
gradually accustomed to the light.
For that reason she Is being kept in
a darkened room constantly.
The most remnrkablo featuro of
the strange case Is that tho woman
