Friends Figure That He Has Clear
Majority In the Legislature
-> i The friends of A. a. Spaldlng In
San Diego, have issued, presumably
with his sanction the following state
"The election of A. 0. Spaldlng as
United States senator seems an assur
ed fact. There are 40 senators and 80
assemblymen, which means 120 on
Joint ballot. ' Of these senators 20 are
holdover senators, leaving 100 sena
tors and assemblymen to be elected.
Out of thene 20 holdovers 11 promised
Senator Leroy. A. Wright, when ho
filed Spalding's nomination papers,
that they would vote for Spalding.
"Associated Press dispatches showed
that Spalding had carried 63 district's
'which, with the 11, votes of the holu
over senators means 64 votes out of
120 on joint ballot, or a clear majority
of four, which means the election of
Spalding withv^t any doubt."
RECORD PRICE COTTON.
> On August 20, the price of cotton in
"V New York, went up to $16.43, August
* deliveries, a new record for the sea
son. The crop months followed the
! August advance rather slowly, but
gradually sold up to a net gain of be
tween 10 and 20 points.
An independent candidate for Cou
nty Superintendent of Schools appears
in the person of E. J. Norrish, former
principal of the' Imperial schools, who
has had twenty-five years experience
as a teacher in grammar and high
schools. Mr. Norrish has considerable
support in Imperial and Holtville.

\ How few, persons, know anything
about this' subject, even after it has
been debated for a year. Probably
"the "Tribune" actually believes its
caildlike allegation. Please mark this
prophecy. Before he is ; pried loose

to : make certain parties grateful to
him, and thereby render his future
more secure. It would be a /great
happiness to us if we could believe
his successor will represent a funda-
I mentally^, different point of view, but
we have a sad conviction that a
change, from him to any man likely
to get the job will mean about as
much as a change from Aldrich to
Crane, or from Cannon to Olmstead.
