According to Commissioners
Clerk, George P. Ross, ho sent over

incurred in tho famous case of the
Commonwealth vs. Carl Howe, tried

a change of venue, from Lackawan
na county, the following week after
the trial to tho Lackawanna County
Commissioners, but they didn't pay
any attention to it.
To fittingly welcome their com
rades, the men of Lieutenant Ezra S.
Griffin Post have asked the citizens
of Scranton to aid them in raising a
fund of $2,500 to provide for the re
ception of the visiting veterans.
They point out that Is is the first
time in a quarter of a century that
the state encampment Is to be held
there, and that in every likelihood it
will be the last time the veterans of
tho state will pitch their tents here,
since death is gradually working
havoc in those already sadly thin
ned ranks that bore the shock and
brunt of many a hard fought battle.
The Ninth Cavalry, tho negro reg
iment, the presence of which In San
Antonio caused a protest to be made
to President Taft by Congressman
Garner of the Brownsville district
and others, Is in accordance with dis
positions already reported from
Washington to leave San Antonio.
The regiment is going to do patrol
duty on tho border, and there is rea
son to believe that at least two
troops will go to Brownsville, the
town at the mouth of the Rio Grande,
which was the scene of the trouble
that caused a battalion of the Twenty-fifth
Infantry, another negro regi
ment, to bo dismissed from tho serv
ice of the United States by President
Tho negro troopers, instead of ap
pearing downcast at being ordered to
tho desolate stations along the bor
der, apparently welcome the change.
They had feared that thoy were to
be sent back to Wyoming instead of
upon this comparatively active ser
vice. Col. John R. Marshall, the negro
commanding officer of tho Eighth
Infantry, Illinois National Guard,
who came in last night, to-day re
ported to the commanding officer of
the Eighteenth United States Infan
try, tho regiment to which he has
been assigned for the next two
weeks. In that regiment 50 per
cent, of tho officers are Southerners,
while the other Militia Colonel as
signed to tho Eighteenth is Col. Gard
ner of North Carolina. Tho colored
officer has his meals sent to his tent,
while tho North Carolina Colonel and
the other white officers assigned to
tho regiment mess with the' regular
officers. The negro keeps to himself
most of the time.
The lawmakers who have been
trying to get together on a date for
the primary elections appear to have
at last arrived at a decision that Is
satisfactory to a majority of the
members of the legislature, and un
less something unexpected occurs
before tho bill is placed In the hands
of the governor, the primaries this
year will be hold on the last day in
September. Senator Tustln, who
last week introduced a bill fixing as
the primary date the first Saturday
in October, offered an amendment
Monday night when the bill was
taken up on third reading changing
the date to the last Saturday in Sep
tember of odd numbered years, leav
ing unchanged tho provision for the
April primary in even numbered
years. This arrangement was agreed
upon at a conference of Senator
Penrose with Philadelphia organiza
tion leaders and it Is therefore pret
ty certain to pass both senate and
house and meet with tho approval of
Governor Tener. To conform to the
new date, Tustln Introduced a bill
fixing tho registration days on
Thursday, August 31; Tuesday, Sep
tember 5, and Saturday, September
10. The uncertainty of the date for
tho primaries has caused no little
trouble to candidates for office.
Many have already had announce
ment cards on which tho June date
.appears, printed and circulated,
while others have been postponing
from time to tlmo the beginning of
an active campaign until it was de
termined when tho primaries would
bo held. With tho date six months
in the future tlere is likely to be a
considerable increase in the already
largo number of candidates for coun
ty offices In Wayne county. The
short tlmo intervening between the
primaries and the general election
means that there will be a whirl
wind campaign conducted by the
nominees of the several parties.
