Under tho Australian ballot system
tha municipal election of Medford oc
curred last Tuesday, January 12, at
which timo a mayor, four councllmon,
a recorder, a treasurer, and a marshal
were elected. Thero wore two tickets
in the field, Citizet.s and Democratic.
Two councilmcn and tho treasurer ran
on the tickets of both parties and were
elected, the citizens electing the rest
of their ticket except one councilman.
Two hundred and twenty-seven votes
were polled, being exactly the same
number as cast last vear. This num
ber, we understand, is about seventy
five short of tho real voting strength of
Medford, but owing to there being no
issues to draw out the full vote the re
sult was a surpriso to those who counted
on the additional number.
Tho city was divided into two pre
cincts, numbered one and two, Seventh
street being the dividing line. Every
thing went on smooth and quiet during
the entire day and we are safe in saying
tho Australian system gave entire sat
isfaction. The result is as follows:
Mayor, J. A. Whiteside, Citizen can
didate, 124 votes; majority over G. S.
Walton, Democratic candidate, 33.
Councilmcn W. B. Roberts, D. and

A rather sorious accident occured in
tho city Tuesday afternoon. Tho
bridge gang of this division, which
readies from tunnel ono, just this side
of Roseburg, to Ashland of which Dun
McFadden is forraan, were at work
putting down new plunks in the depot
walk. Robert Crockett whil j hewing
one of these planks, which had been
laid, cut himself just below the . inner
ankle joiut of the loft foot. The out
was about one and one half inches
long and quite deep. It blood pro
fusely as though an artery had been
cut but after boin? assisted to one of
the Grand Central rooms, it was fouud
by the doctors who had been called in,
Genrv nnd Walt, that although an
artory had boon touched none were cut.
The dressing of tho wound was quickly
done, two stitches necessary to closo
the gap, after which the young man
was assisted to the depot, and taking
the evening train went on to his home,
which is near tunnel nine where ho
was at last accounts doing well.
A San Francisco paper thus notes
tbo natural gas furor at Stockton.
