TWO-THIRDS THROUGH Over 2,100 Names Have Been Taken Up and Passed Forty-elght Were Challenged Yesterday Afternoon* •,'* ,. The making of the criminal and law assignments yesterday afternoon de layed the saloon petition hearing an hour and but forty-eight names were challenged during the session which lasted until 5:40. A little variety was offered in a witness being placed on the Btand, but the court held that the matter had been gone over .and the wit ness was withdrawn. Then, too, a question somewhat similar to that ruled on by the court in the morning session yesterday came up again in the afternoon hearing, and dealt with changing one's residence between the time of voting and signing the petition. The matter came up in the challenge of Charles Bloom, whose residence was given in the seventh ward and his vot ing precinct was the fifth. Will Hear Argument. The matter of a signer changing resi dence to another ward after election and previous to hia signing the state ment of consent, was stated by the court as a matter that he would hear the attorneys on. He said that where there was no question about it being the same man, there was no reason why it might not be argued by the counsel as it is a different proposition from the verbal evidence to which he sustained on objection earlier in the day. Over 2,100 Names Are Passed. The work of the afternoon was largely challenges of persons not on the poll books under the name chal lenged, and these take much time to prove up owing to the great difference found at times with the signature and the manner in which the election clerks spell the names. At the time of adjournment last evening there were over 2,100 names disposed of. Cheadle on Stand.

After due consideration of the many sites offered in South Ottumwa for the erection of a new school building, the school board has decided upon the pur chase of the four lots on Wilson street, between Ward and Ransom streets for the sum of $2,400. A1 though the deed has not b,een trans ferred as yet, the purchase is settled and will be formally completed in a short time. The board feels that it has gained a splendid site and at a reasonable price. Chairman of the finance committee J. E. Hull stated that the proposition for the erection of a building on the site would in all probability be placed before the voters of the city at the next school election, March, 1912. He also stated this structure would be known as the South Ottumwa high school, although seventh and eighth grades may be transferred from the other south side schools to relieve the overflowing enrollment. The first two years of the high school course will be taught in this school, the students then coming to the-north side institution to complete their courses. The new structure such as the school board has been planning, will cost approximately $40,000. TELEGRAPHERS AT CEDAR RAPIDS JUNE 9, THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY TO BE OBSERVED—RAMSEY TO BE THERE.
