Spry 6547 Plurality;
I Efforts will bo m'ndn by the canvass
ing board to complete the tabula! Ion of
tho official returns from .ill the election
districts of Salt Lake county tonight..
Thus far the board has completed the
tabulation of the returns from all of
tlie city districts and about one-third
of the election districts of the county
nutjfde or the city.
Salt Lake will be the last counlv of
the stato to complete its official can-va-a

and a pirt of the county outsid of tho

variance on tho complete count from the
unofficial returns as announced the
mornlnpr after election.
G. O. P. Pluralities.
The entire Republican state ticket has
btcn elected bv pluralities ranging from
4500 to 60OO. Indications arc that .At
torney General A. 1?. Barnes has re
ceived the highest voic of any candidate
on tho Kepublicnn ticket, pavo A. C.
Xelson. whose candidacy for state su
pcrlntcndcnt of schools pracllcal
llStS 'v uncontesled. Although Governor
MMv sPrv did not get tho largest vote of any
or the candidates for state office, his
$).? Tj!-rallty will probably be as large, if
3fjil: not larger, than that of any other nuc-
IMaJi ccsuful candidate, for the reason that
fiffH .1. V Tolton. .Democratic gubernatorial
jrut candidate, ran .somewhat behind hie
Mil ticket, owina- to tho fact that many
I mi Democrats voted cither for (..ovornor
US Spry or the Progressive candidate for

visited several of the nearby islands.

Wliou there art; two in such 11 plight,
interest exactly doubles; and when
those two arc .young ladies of bewitch
ing grace and rare accomplishment, the
situation becomes one of positive o.
citouicnt. A .year or so ago Miss Dcniso Kar
rielc and .Miss Dorothy iRooklidgo lay
asido their school books and became
imbued with a laudablo amition to earn
their own pin money. Having the will,
th cyr swiftly devised si wsiy. They
opened si class in dancing. Tiicy were
o.tclusive. Onlv 'intimate friends of
the families wcro asked to become pa
Irons and patronesses. They taught
lhe little children, the little larger chil
dren and tho near-grown-up 'children
the latest stops; but never oneo did
they teach tho Turkey Trot, Iho
Grizzly Bear or iho Bunny Mug. No,
indeed, theirs -was of tho fclsi.nda.rd of
dancing schools whero such things
were abjured.
During long afternoons sind longer
evenings the pretty dancing tesichcrs
labored nsHiduouely." They guided tiny
feet through (ho labyrinthino mazes of
tho 9latcly minuet and Iho rapturous

young ladies succeeded, siud thoy re

written upon and sfsimpod and sealed

The burden of the message carried
by ihc long yellow document was after
this fsishion:

(0 a rightoouj. indiigiiation, which emo

"It's porfoctly awful, tho way they

It was suggested to the young ladies
that, si compromise might bo effected
with tho city, whereby ono of them
would sorve the .100 davs and the other

Miss Tsarrick is the daughter of Mrs.
S. ft. K tit rick and. Miss liooklidgo the
dnughter of MV. and Mrs, C. D. Tiook
lidge. When Miss TCarrielt was a tiny
witsy bit of iufancp she, liko all good
little darling babies, was given a god
fathor. His name was Samuel C. Park,
lie has since attained" the distinguished
honor of tho office of mayor, by the
grace of Iho commission form of gov
ernment and. the electorate of the city
of Salt Lake. Mibs "Rooklulge. not to
be outdone, also got :i god-father. His
namo was W. TT. Shearman, Miss
Itooklidgc's god-father, by tho same
processes that elevated Mr. Park to
the dignified, station of mayor, was
himself lifted' to iho no less dignified
place of cltv auditor. Moreover, both
the Misses Karri ck and Rooklidgc had
boon toddled many and 111:1113' rt time
on the leneo of City Commissioner
Henry W. Lawrence, That was long
ago, of course.
Jn view of these facts, incidents fol
lowing hard upon their appearance in
tho world, the blisses Karrick and
Rooklidgc feel that .they havo some
right? in this government for tho poo
pic, of tho people, hy tho people; and
you just watch and see if they don't

The plaintiffs brought 3tilt in the dis

In the arguments ycslerday counsel

Six Members of City Board
of Education to Be Chosen
. ' December A.
Most' of Incumbents Will
Probably Accept Another
Nomination if Tendered.
5jj.- nifiinbcrs of the Salt Lako board
of education will he chosen at 'the annual
school election lo be held on IDccomber
1. Ono member will bo selected from
each or thu'llvo municipal wards of Salt
Lake and in addition a member to fill
the unexpired term of Mayor Samuel C
Park from the Second ward.
Thus far there has been little discus
sion of Die approaching achool election.
It Is likely that partisan politics will
not figure in the election and that ths
nominations for tho board will bo made
at non-partisan convention1! in each ward.
The present members of the Salt Lake
school board, whose terms orcplrc this
year, are C. S. Martin of the First ward,
Arnold G, Gliiuquo and Dr. V. S. Bas
com from the Second, O, "W. Moylf of the
Third. Mal.honlhah Thomas or the
Fourth, and Dr. C. 1. Douglas of the
Fifth. Dr. Bascom was appointed last
year to fill the vacancy 011 the hoard
caused by the resignation of Mayor Sam
uel C. Park. Mayor Park's term will not
ivxplro for two years and the momber to
be selected from the Second ward for
this place will serve only for two years.
All other members to be elected this time
are for four-year terms.
May Remain at Posts.
Moat of the present, members of the
board of cductatlon Whttsc terms expire
this year wjll probably be candidates for
re-election. In the First ward. C. S.
Martin said last night that ho was bcln?:
urged by the people of his ward to be
a. candidate for re-election and that if
they felt ho could best represent them on
tho board ho would again be a candidate.
The only other resident of the First ward
who has thus far been prominently men
tioned as a candidate for a place on the
board at the coming election Is Prof.
Byron Cununlngs. who formerly served
for several yenrs as . member of the
board f education-
Giauque in the Race.
It is considered probable that both Mr.
Giauque and Dr, Batcom will be candi
dates from the Second ward for places
on tho board. Thus far there havo been
no other candidates from the Second
suggested for these two placer. The
report that Mayor Park was about to
resign the mayoralty occasioned the
suggestion that he become a candidate
from the Second for his old place on
tho board, but the mayor will probably
not resign from the municipal commis
sion. If at ail, until after the school
election is held.
Oscar W. Moyle will likely be re
elected a member of the board from the
Third ward. He has been urged to be
come a. candidate for re-election and
it is considered improbable that there
will be any candidate for the place.
Thomas May Retire.
Mathonlhah Thomas wilt probably not
be a candidate to succeed himself. Mr.
Thomas finds the press of private busi
ness so great that it is considered
likely that he will ask the people of
the Fourth to elect someone else to
