Eakin In tWe district court decided the
election contest of Joseph Downs against
David L. Houston In favor of the latter.
Houston was elected councilman on an
ndppenrtent ticket at the December elec
tion and Downs sought to oust him, al
leging that the ballots were illegal, not
having been prepared by the city re
corder as provided by ordinance. The
case hinged upon the construction of a
rour-day limit for filing. Houston's
name was filed during the fourth day
before election and was rejected. His
supporters then had ticketa bearing his
name printed and these were voted. The
court held that four full days were not
necessary and In his decision laid down
the doctrine that In the absence of a
showing of fraud the Intention of a ma
jority of voters .should be considered
and that they could not be deprived of
ineir ngnts because of errors of an offi.
Houston is well known throughout
the state and owna a fine Dlaca on tha
edge of town. Apple from hla orchard
figured largely in the display that won
the prise at the Portland apple ahow

tics and ran against O. P. Hoff foe labor
