In the case of Representative James J. Britt vs. the Buncombe county board of election, Judge Adams Monday dis missed the writ of mandamus, issued by Judge Shaw on .behalf of Mr. Britt, to compel the board of election to com ply with the law in certifying the re turns. The board certified the returns shortly after the mandamus was issued and gave Zebulon Weaver, democrat, a majority of nine votes in the district. Mr. Britt's attorneys contended thar the action of the board was illegal in that certain ballots that were unmark ed but which contained only the name", of the congressional candidates wero counted. Counsel for Mr. Britt noted an ap.! peal to the state supreme court and! republican leaders said that an effort would probably be made to enjoirhthe state board of election from issuing a certificate of election to Weaver pending a decision. i It is evident now that Mr. Britt will carry the case to the supreme court, and in the event of failure there., will enter notice of contest on the floor; cf the House of Representatives in Wash! ington. In case it comes to the latter Mr. Weaver is given a certificate by the state board of election, he will draw one year's salary no matter how the House decides. An appropriation of $2,000 Js. made by the House for the purpose of paying the expenses at tached to a contest. . Judge Adams, Tuesday afternoon, told attorneys for Britt. that in view' of the fact that he had'dismissed the man damus proceeding he preferred not to sign the temporary injunction against the state canvassing board and the sec. retary of state enjoining them from issuing a certificate of election to Mr. Weaver. However, he told them that if they could not find another judge b would consider signing the order. Thomas Settle left Asheville Tuesday afternoon in search of another judge.

Hendersonville, and considers Crystal Spring water one of the city's greatest drawing card. Doctor Ennis is now in St. Petersburg, Fla., and writing to W. A. Smith, owner of Lau rel Parkj within the bounds of which Crystal Springs is located says: 'iLast winter I made an effort hers to have northern tourists the following year get tickets passing through your city, advising them to stop there for a time. . A number did so and I am pleased to tell you they were delighted with Hendersonville and will now be regular visitors both fall and spring. Some of them down here are boosting your city to all they come m eontact with.- "A Mr. Owen and wife of Portland, Maine, remained one wees. ii.cy v.n stop at least two months on their way home. A.

They were so captivated with your city-tffey remained one month, and from this time on will be with you three or four months every year. Mr. Heniek is a wealthy man, with great influence among the vast crowd of tourists who come here and I know he will do us great service. He has been suffering from rheumatism for many years in the-past, being always under the care of a physician. Accepting my advice he drank one gallon per diem,. of Crystal water while there, and as a result was cured of that terrible dis ease. He stopped at the Cedars. .
