Many reports are current as to who will win the OVERLAND in The Bul letin voting contest. First one candi date will le picked as a sure winner, the r.tiie partisan of some one else in the race will takeup the fight for their favorite, and argue why their choirc will win tTie car, and the re sult is that there are many arguments going on and not a few wagers have been made on the final outcome of the contest. Who Will Win Car. That Is the question that man;; In the race would give a good deal to know. They know how many votes they have personally, but have no Hdea as to how many votes their competitors may have up their sleeve. And there is no means of them know ing unlesi these competitors give them the information themselvc, which they are not likely fo do. All In the Dark. There is probably not one candi date In the race who has any idea if the real strength of their opponents. They can tell from the ibi'y vote as to how (hey may stand in the paper bet when it comes to estimating their reserve they can get no line on it at all. The ballots issued on the subser p tions as tliey are brought to the office are good to be voted at any tine dur ing the race, and there is no doubt that many of those diown in the list at the present time could take their place with he leaders if they so wished. However, fhey apparently prefer to lay back and allow others to take the lead and near the close of the race they will come to the front with the mass of votS tha will act as a bombshell in the camps of other candidates,' anil then all the reports current at the present time will fly and one wnom the public least expect to win 1 tie car will come out ahead with flying colors. Stick-to-it-ive-ness. Thai, is what will win out for you in the end. The others in the contest are working might and main to reach the desired goal, and the contestant who gets a subscription today, and then does not do anything more for a week will find themselves sadly out of the running when the race Is over. Mr. Wise te, the Front.

Mr. Wise as sumed a know-it-all smile and re plied that he KNEW POSITIVELY that there would be more votes given tae last week of the contest, and at that time he would give his subscrip tion. That man did not know what he was talking about, and the Con gest Department' wish it understood that no one at ail has any idea of 'anything relative to the contest. And jit niig.U be stated here a -id now that , if Mr. Know-it-all waits until the last, few .lays of the contest he is "very liable fo get less votes than are offered this week.

The committee had also voted not to recommend the payment of Ex Police Officer Casey's claim of $280 as stlary during his suspension from office. But Alderman Greaney, chair man of the committee explained that, the. alderman had withdrawn hi3 name from the report leaving less than a majority, which under trr rules constituted no report. Alderman Burke believed the mat ter slioull bo disiHised of one w-ay or another, and moved that the bill be taken out of the hands of the com mittee, which was done. The samo alderman then moved that tho bill be allowed. Alderman Greaney ' protested, say ing that It would set a dangerous pre cedent. Other officers and firemen had, been suspended at varlotts times, and others 'probably would be sus pended In the future. In the 'past they had not en allowed their sala ries during the period of their sus pension, and they should not bo in the future. Ho considered It a great exhibition of nerve that the ex-officer should present such a bill. "Such gall would carry a man to heaven and back," snldl the alderman. Aldrmiui Kelly said if a man ia working for you and yon lay him off, you do not pay him and he does not earn his wages, I don't think the city should pay a man who has leen laid off.
