BIENNIAL MAY PRIMARY ELECTION BATTLE OF BALLOTS I'liofficlal Returns l,ut Nearly Cor rect Result of Recall The May primaries passed off very quietly, and while great interests were at stake In the selection of can didates, 1114 recall election overshad owed all others. Considerable con fusion resulted in making out the re call ballot for tho reason the "No" and "Yes" were marked but the necessary vote following was over looked, and the same applies to the commissioner part of the ballot. One would think, however, that the elec tors of this county should be fully advised us to making out a recall ticket. However, the election passed off good naturedly as far as St. Helens precincts are concerned, there seems to bo a general desire to abide by tho results. Sco tabulated re turns elsewhere in this issue. Fic tion Note The neatest and most business-like returns received was the report from Ooble. Judge Eakin received the nomina tion on the Democratic ticket. A. W. Muller received the nomina tion for representative on the Demo cratic ticket, over W. J. Fullerton, Democrat. Glen O. Metsker was the favorite among the Democrats, and he re ceived the Democratic nomination at their hands. W. J. Zlllman received the Demo cratic nomination for county com missioner. J. W. McDonald had no trouble to receive the Democratic nomination for county clerk. E. C. Stanwood received the Demo cratic nomination for sheriff over E. L. Payne, Democrat. C. W. Blakesley, J. W. Allen, L. J. Van Orshoven and T. S. White re ceived the Democratic nomination for their respective offices. R. S. Huttan, county judge-elect under the recall, will assume the du ties of that office June 1. As Mr. Hattan is treasurer, he will have the unique distinction of naming his own successor. "Jimmie " Hunt has al ready been selected as his successor. Mr. Hunt is a very capable man and is familiar with the duties of the office and the afairs of that responsi ble office will move along without a hitch. As a general rule those who fall to register rush In at the eleventh hour. The registration law will never be satisfactory until those who fall to register at the proper time will be denied the right to vote. In the case of removal to another precinct, trans fer cards can be used. However, under the present law, those who havo registered will not have to register again unless a change of voting precinct is made. PRECINCT OFFICERS Republican Constable Dist. No. 1, Lafe Brown.

PATRONIZING OUR ADVER- TIZFItS NOT ONLY HELPS THEM HUT IT BENEFITS THE HT. HELENS MIST. AM) IT ALSO UK LI'S IF YOU SAY I SAW IT IN THE ST. HEL- ENS MIST. BRIEF STATE ELEC TION RETURNS Butchel for public service com missioner carried the state over Campbell by approximately 15,000. Olcott's majority over Moores will approach 17,000. Hughes for president carried the state by over 30,000. Congressman Hawley had no oppo sition and therefore received the nomination. The same applies to Justice Moore and Burnett and Dairy and Food Commissioner MIckle. LIVED ON MULE MEAT Do you know that the kindly man from whom you purchase popcorn lived for nine days on mule meat? His name is J. M. Hanson, and here's the story. In the Indian war in Kansas, in 1868-9, he was a member of the 19th Kansas cavalry, under command of Col. Crawford, who was governor and resigned for service. The troops were In extreme west ern Kansas when they were overtaken by a blizzard. T'.icir 600 horses stampeded and onl' mule teams were left. The horses were lost in tho storm and their bones afterwards found bleaching on the prairie. Food run short, and although the men were put on short rations they were soon without supplies, and the lame and crippled mules were slaugh tered and the soldiers lived on their, flesh for nine days. Mr. Hanson's partner succeeded In killing a buffalo and they made it into soup. He ate nine pints and when it was taken away from him he cried for more. They were finally rescued by a sup ply train. This subject was brought up for the reason that Congressman Hawley has Introduced a bill which we learn has passed both houses, granting a pension to soldiers in all wars who served six months or more. -When this bill becomes a law, Mr. Hanson will receive his deserved pension. AT THE CIRCUS A big circus will exhibit In Port land shortly. We are in receipt of $1,0 worth of advertising for $2 worth of tickets. Our waste basket is full of such orders. But about the circus. When a boy, we thought the circus the greatest event In ju venile annuls. Now we are not quite sure of it. However, like the rest of humanity we are susceptible to the charms of tinsel and blarelng music. When an elephant comes along with a curly headed Hindoo on his hurri cane deck, we pause In wonder. Then the band commences to play, fol lowed by the roaring of wild animals. The clowns cause the front side of our-face to open with a smile, but when the girl comes along dancing on a fiery steed, dressed in a blue ribbon, with one foot at 6 o'clock and the other at high noon, we make a rush for the ticket wagon to get ahead of the preachers, who always wear stovepipe hats and won't sit down In front. St. Helens will be favored Sunday with a visit from Bishop Sumner, bishop of the Episcopal church of the diocese of Oregon. He la a very distinguished divine and St. Helens is especially fortunate to be able to hear htm. Services will be held at Christ Episcopal church Sunday eve ning. Andrew Parker, Vernonla. K. F.
