Light Vol and Activity of Oppo
nents Defeat Proposal.
ABERDEEN. Wash.. Nov. 10 (Spe
rlaL Aberdeen today defeated the
proposal to adopt the commission form
af government as prescribed under the
Allen law by a majority of Il. 4
votes being cast against the commis
sion and SS for It. Tha defeat was
primarily due to the opposition of some
of the leading business and profes
sional men of the city, headed bv W. J.
Patterson, banker, who contend! that
It woald be unwise to adopt the charter
as laid down under the Allen law when
within the course of a few years the
city would have a population of 20.0
and would be able to write Its own
Trie Initiative and referendum fa
turea also were strongly opposed and
bad much to do with tha adverse vote.
The women failed to vote and that cut
off all the hopes of the commission ad.
voratea Another factor was tha ex
ceedingly light vote, scarcely 5 per
rent of tha registration appearing at
the pell.
Tha campaign was apathetic np to a
few days ago. when opponents of the
commission plank fearing that It would
carry raised a fund and began active
work, r'rlends of the commission did
not attempt to raise a fund. Today op
ponents to commission used practically
all the automobiles In the city and got
out tha vote. Interest now centers In
tlie Councllmanlc Investigation which
will be made by County Attorney Wil
liam K Campbell and It Is declared
triat this will be rushed with the prob
ability that It will end In another cam
paign for the commission.

You cannot possibly know each and
every different make of table food. There are so
many different grades and names and qualities.
Heretofore you have had to guess when you ordered provisions.
But under the Yours truly plan you absolutely know just what you
are buying. For the name " Yours truly" protects you on highest
quality strictest purity fairest price and most uniform flavor.
A superior line of table foods, backed and guaranteed, is now within your
reach. All made and sold under the one name "Yours truly." Not one
kind of beans another grade of macaroni and a third quality of soup.
But every food a high grade product each ingredient selected for quality,
and made with that genuine intense flavor that denotes the best.
Just, order any food you need for your table by the name "Yours truly." Then no matter
what the product you will be sure of securing the best the market afiords.
Ask your grocer; if he does not know Yoarw truly,
the grocer around the corner does.
