The local election passed off quietly
despite the intense interest it held
for the adherents of the two leading
Kour hundred voters had been the
approximate estimate for the Juneau
precinct, but this was exceeded by
fifty at the time the polls closed.
There was little scratching as the
totals show. While is was strenuous
ly claimed by the non-partisan work
ers that their ticket would win out
both in the town of Juneau and the
division, there were macy who while
conceding Juneau to the non-parti
sans. believed that the progressive
ticket would carry enough outside
precincts to elect at least a part of
The first fifteen ballots counted in
Juneau, were five for each of the
three tickets in the field. As the
counting progressed the Socialists
dropped behind until they were hope
lessly out of it The race then was
nip and tuck between the two lead
ing tickets until the count was well
advanced when it could be seen that
the non-partisan ticket would have
a handsome plurality in the town.
The progressive adherents were en
couraged by the vote from Silvor Bow
basin which gave Valentine 25 and
Tanner 7. both of whom lead their
tickest in that precinct.
Salmon Creek gave tne progressive
ticket 8. the Socialists 2 and the non- i
partisan 1. But reports from Doug-1
las. Tread well. Sitka. Haines and
Skagway showed great majorities for
the non-partisan ticket and the little

ROCHESTER MAN THOUGHT 1
HE FOUND DOROTHY ARNOLD.
ROCHESTER. N. Y.. October 26.?
For a few hours last night a Roch
ester man thought he had found Doro
thy Arnold, the wealthy New York ,
girl who disappeared two years ago.
Remarks made by an attractive
young woman he met in a boarding
house led him to visit a newspaper
office in quest of photographs of the
missing heiress. The resemblance,
he thought, was perfect, so he im
mediately rushed to a telephone and
called up the Arnolds in New York.
"I have found your daughter," he
told Mrs. Arnod.
But when he described the girl the
color of her eyes was wrong and
the resemblance failed in other par
Mrs. Arnold agreed to pay the tel
ephone tolls of $12.20.
P. S. Early, one of the oldest pros
pectors and best known mining men

mail. The Alameda had the contract
and as she has nothing to go into

no immediate hope in sight for them
so far as getting mail is concerned.
FIRST VIEW OF INTENDED
PUTS MEXICAN TO FLIGHT.
DENVER, Oct. 26.?"If you please.
Benor, may I please give my marriage
license back? I will take my money
back. I have changed my mind, se
nor. I do not like my senorita when
I have seen her."
With this statement Paul Mestas,
a Mexican, timidly approached City
Clerk Thum at City Hall and laid on
the counter a marriage license he
had obtained earlier in the day. The
bride-to-be was Miss Lola Lucero.
City Clerk Thum, always willing to
oblige the seekers after matrimonial
happiness, exchanged with the Mexi
"You see, senor," said Mestas. "I
do not love Lola. I have just seen
her and will not be married."
More than this Mestas would not
say. He left the license and pocketed
the fee and went away.
