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
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
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,
Glen O. Metsker was the favorite

cratic nomination for county com
J. W. McDonald had no trouble to

for county clerk.
E. C. Stanwood received the Demo
cratic nomination for sheriff over E.

C. W. Blakesley, J. W. Allen, L. J.

R. S. Huttan, county judge-elect
under the recall, will assume the du
ties of that office June 1. As Mr.

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

Olcott's majority over Moores will
Hughes for president carried the

Congressman Hawley had no oppo

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
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
