Proceeding Slowing on Account of

(From Saturday's Statesman.)
The work of registering the voters Is
being carried on very slowly and al
though there remains about three
months In" which one can register it
seems Mhe better policy to attend to
the matter at the present time- instead
of putting it off until he last hour or
minute and run.the-riak of getting into
a ruph and being shut out as was the
case with many before.? Up to last

ter to make even a rough estimate of
the number of registrations throughout
the county, as outfits have been sent
to every precinct In. the county except
those In the Immediate vicinity of Ba

Is better progress being made In the
outside precincts than In those of the

this W. Scott Taylor who has charge

Existing: as to What the Season
Will Prove to Be.
The local Wheat market Im. and has
been for the past few weejts. very quiet
with little or no change In the prljce
The Eastern and foreign markets have
been In a somewhat disturbed and fluc
tuating condition, but no particular in
fjuence has been made upon the loal
market and the price, - 63 cents per
bushel, has been maintained steadily
although millers have been obliged to
nav from 1 to 114 cents in excess of
that price in order to secure material
on which to run. ! A letter from the
firm iof Getrge Morrow St Co., of Sn
Franiclsco, defines the condition of the
market in that district and the world
generally.' It follows:
Market conditions are somewhat pe
culiar. The showery weather of the
present week has been added to the un
certainty heretofore existing .aa to
what the season would prove to be, and
wniie snowers nave been frequent, w
have not been favored with anything
approaching an old-fashioned southeast
rain storm.X The light rains we have
had. have of course tended to keep the
crops alive, but there is great need of
a heavy soaking rain, not only tolbrlng
relief to the minds of the farmers, but
to i stimulate business generally
throughout tbe! state. X

Statesman: It has been an open se
cret here for several days that the
wide-awake town of Jefferson Is soon
to have Opened In its midst a. banking
establishment, which fact makes, the
business people of this place feel espe
cially Jubilant, as If means that much
other business will follow as a, result.
Mr. J. A. Aupperle of the Jefferson
flouring mills. Is one; of the prime mov
ers In the matter, and will have associ
ated with him Mr. K W. liasardv who
will act aa cashier 'of the bank. : Mr.
Hazard spent several weeks here, and
Anally decided to cast his fortunes with
Marion county. He has canvassed all
the business men and most of the
farmers round about, all of whom have
agreed to support the bank with theii
good will and patronage.
i Mr. Haxard was for many-years cash-
ler of an Iowa bank, where he was
most successful, and made a good rec
ord as a straight business man. Some
local capital baa been secured to take
an interest Iik the enterprise, and it Is
expected that a good business wilt be
worked up. All farmers selling wheat
and other produce here will appreciate
being able to get their cash Instead of
checks and orders as In the past, and
It Is thought this fact will be a con
siderable advantage to all the business
Interests of the place, t The capital
stock will probably be 320,000 to begin
with, but thjs may be Increased aa the
business demands. !

negro complied, and there were the
steel bracelets, and Jackson s freedom
