An instance was given of Independence being passed an as a location for an ice factory oe cause of lack of adequate ehippiog facilities.

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 Dallas. March 12 The demo cratic county central committee for Polk county met here today, and set a time for the democratic pri maries and convention and made the apportionment of delegates. Wednesday, April 13 was set for the primaries and Saturday, April 16, for the convention.
