NO ONE ASPIRES FOR TWO PLACES Voters of Perry May Write Names of Coroner and Surveyor on Ballot New Bloomfleld, Fa., Sept. 16. With no candidates of either party in the field for the office of coronor of Perry county Is In the limelight to a large extent to-day at the pri mary elections. This condition comes about from information because .of the size of the emolument the person who fills the office would receive. Several years ago it sud denly was found there was no such thing as a coroner of Perry county, when there developed a sudden need for his services. Dr. George W. Gault, of Marys vllle, who previously has served one term as coroner, having been elect ed when slightly more than a half dozen voters wrote his name on the ballot, consented to be appointed to the office. Now, he says, he wants nothing to do with It. His profes sional duties will not permit him to accept: besides, that the remunera tion would not warrant him going to the expense. So no person is In the field to succeed Dr. Gault and the office may again be filled by voters writing in the names of candidates. One other office of Perry county is without a candidate at to-day's primaries, that of county surveyor. For district attorney and register and record, there are candidates only for the Republican nomination and In each instance only one of these.
