ALBIA. .j, A Yes Southv Side school 517 Franklin addition 509 Jefferson school roadway ... 41 By the above vote in the three pre cincts yesterday, James Majors and George B. Simmons were elected di rectors of the Ottumwa independent school district for terms of three years $35,000 in bonds were author ized to be issued for the building of a new South Ottumwa school house at the corner of Ward and Wilson streets, the Issuance of |8,000 in bonds for a four room addition to the Franklin school on Walnut avenue, was allowed but the proposition for a forty-foot roadway to the Jefferson school was» defeated by an overwhelming majority. Dr. A. O. Williams received several votes in the three precincts. While the vote cast was lighter than usual, it was considerably heavier than was expected yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock. South Ottumwa polled the heaviest vote for the reason that a new school house depended upon the result. Thirty-three women cast their ballots on the proposition, only three of them being opposed. The women were al most all favorable to the proposed ad dition to the Franklin school, six of them voting against it. The men on the South Side gave 333 votes for the school and but forty-four against it. The second precinct gave the school a majority of eight only, the vote being fifty-eight to fifty. A majority of twenty-three votes was given the institution in the first precinct, ninty six men being for and seventy-two men and one woman against the prop osition. With this fourth school the problem of insufficient room for the rapidly increasing number of pupils, is thought to have been solved by the school board for some years. Both the Agassi- and the Irving buildings are fast, becoming filled and the loca tion of the Jefferson school is such that it cannot handle the increase which is coming in the other two dis tricts. The new institution will be centrally located and can take a part of the children from each of the three school territories. a No 73 50 ,47 Yes No First precinct 115 57 Second precinct 65 41 Third precinct 329 7fr As will be seen South Ottumwa gave the proposition thirty-four votes less than was given to the south side school. In the first precinct four per sons who voted on the south side pro position, failed to vote on the Frank lin addition and in the second precinct, one voter failed to cast his ballot either for or against the Franklin mat ter. thus leaving a deficit of eight votes in balancing the difference in the negative votes in South Ottumwa on the two propositions. The four rooms to the Franklin school are also con sidered a necessary enlargement to handle the increasing number oi pu pils in that district. Road Proposition Lost. The third and last proposition, to obtain a road forty feet wide near the Jefferson school to give the pupils proper access was crushed by a major ity of 554 votes. The second precinct was against it thirty-four to one South Ottumwa about eighteen to one, and the first precinct about eight to one. 4* John Denefee from near Melrose brought in the pelt of a large timber wolf to Albia Monday and received a bounty of $5 from the county.

Schuirmann, and among the council men two of their candidates, Charles H. Shick and Theo. Vogelgesang.
