When the Herald called at his teniporarv office in the inland revenue department at the post office, [here were several men waiting for a conferene> with him to ask questions about the income tax forms.

Farmers' Problem i V ? Kdtnontbn, Mar. .UK-Th vale bills committee of the legislature Tuesday morning went back upon its decision of last week and decided to allow the Canadian Home Insurance company, an Kdmonton incorporation, to retain the name proposed. At the previous hearing on the objection of the Home Insurance company of Winnipeg the committee came to the conclusion that a less conflicting name sliould be chosen. The committee went back upon its previous action in face of ;i strong protest by Hon. A. G. MacKay, who may rai^e the question on the floor' of the house. V *� V A V A V V Milwaukee, Mar. 20.-The result of the Republican primary contest yesterday for the nomination of Irvine Denroot. supporter of President Wilson's war alms and James Thompson, the Lat'olletto candidate, was still In doubt eaj>ly today, although partial returns from nearly every section of the state indicated success for benroot. The nomination by the Democrats of Joseph K. Davies, formerly of thc federal trades commission, over Dr. Charles McCarthy by a large majority was mado certain early last night, iloth Democratic candidates in their campaign strongly endorsed the war policy of President Wilson. Former Congressman Victor Berger, Socialist candidate, who was unopposed, polled a larger vote than early returns indicated, his managers claiming that the Socialist vote in the state will total 5b,000. In the. mayoralty primary yesterday, Mayor Houn, Socialist, and Percy Bra ma it, Republican, were/nominated. Prediction was made early today that doubt, would not be removed in tho senatorial contest before tonight and possibly not before tomorrow, as returns are coming In slowly.
