is made by Canada against American ves

of pro-pw-tive councilwomen be plaoei the
names of Mrs. Y. O. Ewart, Mrs. Nat Pesa,
Mrs S. L Stewart and tbe Utters daagb

of the ticket be plocel tbe nam? of Mictwbr
A Counter Movement.
Tbe women were .n lhil and indig
nant, but still, not fearing the election,
took no great interest ia the campaign Ths
pol Ural enemies of Brown, however, desir
ous of seeing his revenge fail of its objects,
LKOdanew ticket, omitting tbe name of
Strong and ultituting tbat of Mrs. Brown,
bis own wife, thus stealing bia thunder and
threatening defeat to his pi ins. Mrs. Brown
was ebnt from the city and couli offe- no
opposition to her nomination. When the
returned she cast her lot with her village
sisters, and rather than see thm bumdiatei
and made ridiculous ty tlie election of
Strong, entered the campaign with energy
and fought her husband, poetically, as bit
terly as his most desperate enemy.
The Women "I-et Her r,o."
Wben e ection day came there were,
therefore, three tickets in the field known
as the Doraa, the Strong, ani the Brown
tickets. The women left the management of
campaign ou election day to th ir friends of
tbe sterner sex, and quite generally refrained
from electioneering, and but very few of
them votd, only fourteen exerc;m? their
suffrages. Tbe men, however, took unu lal
interest in tha ovnteit, and, puru:n the
usual election day tactics, mvi the fi -iit a
close one. When finally tbe pol s were
closed and ibe bal lots count vl it wa found
that tbe women ha 1 leon succ-ful, and

Mrs. T. S. Greer will dispense justice in
tbe police court. She is alao very young,
only 22 years of ape. She is a native of Van
Buren county, Iowa, but bas lived in John
son county for ten years. She it also bright,
vivacious and quite too charming to inquire
into the merits of the esses of "drunks and
Vags." She says she doesn't know much
about the law, but she does know what is
right and what it wrong, and she will trust
to ber woman's instinct to do justice to all
comers. She will enforce tbe laws to tbe
letter. If there is a penalty to be imposed
it will be imposed, "and not to be remitted,
either," to use ber own worda "What is
tbe use of fining a man and then remitting
bis fine They must pay up or brenk rocks
when I'm judge."
The "Council women."
