But there Is little worry on the part
of the officials, for they declare thnt
the allegations of the complaint can

An order for the prohibition elec

the election were provided by County
Clerk Frank Baling and given IHe
sherirt within the requisite time, and
the notices were duly posted by the
sheriff or his deputies.
Official returns showing the com

by both the clerk and sheriff and are
on file. Consequently It would seem
