A spirited election was looked for
as an active canvass had been made
by both candidates. It resulted in
a walk-away for Mr. Tauch by a
vote of 84 to 52.
Prior to balloting those present

bition. It smacked more of a ward
heelers' caucus at a corner grocery
than a school meeting at which
many ladies were present. Instead
of dignity and courtesy rank disor

Tauch. After a few remarks along
this line he began u tirade of nbu.-c
on Pascal Hill that was interspersed
with a few alleged attempts at wit.
"I am sober, and I'm not hired,"
said Snow, "and there is not a man
in town that I would rather take a
drink with than Pascal Hill, pro
viding Hill pays lor it."
It was one of the most disgusting
exhibitions, and one seldom, if ever
seen at a school meeting. The
most ardent advocates of Mr.
Tauch'.s election deprecated the
speaker's efforts' and hung their
bends in shame. Mr. Hill at last
stepped forward to the speaker and
said "Mr Snow." Snow turned

"Pascal, don't have any trouble

walked away, Snow thundering
after him "Let him come on, I'm

Matters threatened to go from
bad to worse and the cooler heads
saw that something had to be done.
The secretary cautioned Snow by
giving his coat a friendly pull, but
i this only served to iucieuse his
inflammatory talk. Finally II. W.
Ilrice, one of the members of the
school board, stepped forward and
whispered to Cliairmau Williams,
who in turn spike to Snow, and
the oratory ceased.
Candidate black then stcped
