Fix Time For Primaries aaa
Convention and Apportion
While there is being a great deal
of ammunition coasumed in one of
our countT papers as to who should
represent Polk county as State
Senator, one would be led to believe
that old Polk was a very small part
and that Dallas held the keys to au
the batteries and could shell out
the only candidates suitable to the
republican voters of Polk county.
While the Observer claims that
Dallas H entitled to furnish the
candidate for this place, we do Dot
care to argue. But we do claim
that every republican voter of this
county should take deep interest in
tbi matter, in a way that no mis
take be made in placing the right
man at the head of the ticket and
one that would de honor to the
party and the county after the elec
tion next June.
It is useless to make believe that
senatorial timber is scarce and that
Dallas is the only place that can
oroduce the right kind. Polk
county is not small by any msans
and contains plenty of good mat
erial to fill every office of the best

committee. In the drama each

part to the entire satisfaction of the
audience, and their frequent ap
