Owen and H. D. Terrell Return from Santa Pe After a long siege and legal battle in the courts, 0. L. Owen finally qualifies aa Corporation Commissioner in the place left vacant by the ousting of G. H. Van Stone. No one who is fam iliar with the case has ever doubt ed for one minute but what Mr. Owen waa fairly and duly elect ed, as there was no other man by the name of Owen on the ticket and the public were only surprised at the temerity and persistence of Van Stone in pre suming to fight for an office which he certainly must have known did not belong to him. But be that as it may, much cred it is due not only Mr. Owen, but also credit is due his able counsel, Judge Terrell, for the long, able and expensive effort made. A less earnest contestant would have faltered and given up the fight in the face of such expen sive litigation and while this pa per is not of the same political complexion as Mr. Owen, never theless we believe in a "square deal" for every man even though his politics is not of our kind.
