The names printed on the city bal lot opposite each other do not Indicate that those people are running aga'nst each other. If you vote for one candidate on the Citizens' ticket, it does not count against any particular candidate on the Republican t'eket It simplv gives that candidate one more vote. If you vote under the Log Cabin In the County race, and desire t- vote for one candidate on the Citi zens' ticket you must vote for the other five candidates for Couneilmen individually. No voter should forget to vote on the Educational Amendments. There are two of them, and they are printed on the bal'ot by the side of the County ticket If you are In favor of the two Amendments, which mean the removal of the-State Superintend ent from polit'cs and tha giving of ten per cert of the school fund U places of greatest need, you should vote in the squares marked "Yes.

It retains In tn hands of the people the power over this office and yet gives a great er scope for finding the best equip ped person for this important post. The present law preve-ts the super intendent succeed'ng himse'f in of fice, ro matto how capable he may He and limits the voters to selocfon between onlv two persons, the Dem ocrats a"d the Republican candidate. This present method is declared most biectiriable for this latter reason especially. Amendment No. 2. will give to the legislature the power to make such ''isnosal. not over 10 percent of the Statu School fund as may help the counties too low in financial resources to maintain schools now requ'red by law. This heln ran be and doubtless will be extended to the poorer coun ties without diminishing the ability "f any county to sustain and even to improve the nresent sta"dard w;th-' out Increased taxation.
