Island on the south carried at least by
a three to one inujority in the election
of yesterday. Carrying of these pro
positions means au adJiiional popula
tion for Rot k Island of approximate
ly 450 and a territorial increase of
nearly 250 ucres. Returns last night
were meager on this proposition, but
i In all precincts heard from the m
'jorlty was overwhelming.
The territory annexed is comprise
of the following tracts:
I Ten aires, Indian I'ark. Thirty-
i second to Thirty-fourth street, south
of Kigliteei th avenue to Twentieth; SO

The republicans almost made a clean
sweep in the township election here
yesterday. William Trefz, democrat
i
! anl present member of the board of
supervisors, was reelected, and the in-
dications also point to the selection cf
YV. C. Peck, democrat, while the rest
cf the offices go to the G. O. P.
Mr. Trefz had no difficulty In de-
j feating a. J. Riess, republican, receiv
ing 3.540 votes to 2,855 cast for his
opponent The fight for assistant au-'
pervisors was close and it will take the
official count to determine the winners."
S. R. Wright, .1. E. Jerkin and Ezra
Wilcher, all republicans and all up for
reelection, were again returned to the
county hoard,. but on the face of tin-;
official returns. Foster Coyne, republi-'
can, is beaten by W. C. Peck, demo-'
crat, by S3 votes. '
The progressive candidate for super
visor. Miss Clara Hampton, and Miss
May Culton, candidate of the party for
collector, easily led their ticket.
For town clerk. W. A. Frewert. re
publican, defeated George W. Cox,
democrat, while George Garwood, pro
gressive, ran third. John F. Moeller,'
republican, was reelected assessor ,
over S. A. LaVanway, democrat, hav
ing several hundred votes to the good. .;
Russ Is Winner.
For collector, Ernest Russ, republi
can, won over Henry C. Wynes, demo-,
crat; Miss May Culton, progressive,!
and Otto Woest, socialist. "Shorty" '
made a hard campaign, but the final;
count showed that Rusb waa winner!
by an easy margin. '
The republicans succeeded in landing,
D. J. Cleland iu the office of consV '.
ble, to fill a vacancy, defeating Sturm
democrat, by over 500.
In the townshin tables nnoted In The
Argus the sixth precinct total vote is
counted in, although the Judges failed j
to report the men and women's vote
on the various candidates. Until th,
official returns are received it will be
impossible to give the public complete
figures for this precinct. , ;
