AN INDEPENDENT TICKET Being Agitated, There is much talk among church members at Bloomington of putting out an independent ticket for, the city election this fall. The condition of sentiment seems, while the city is usually republican, and the ticket is one of all clean men, but on account of the sentiment against the present administration in the Axtell matter ete, that a democratic government would be tried in the November election Then on the other hand the "good citizens" do not want to risk Hams on account of his "wet" supporters. Regester or Tom Sare would have been satisfactory but as the condition stands now the "good citizens" are up a "bush." WHITE-CAP TRIAL POSTPONED, Robt. W. Miers, of Bloomington, counsel for the defendants, David Fox and Jacob Kirk, in the Vanest white capping case, telephoned to Judge Haker Monday evening and asked that the case be continued until the next term of court.
