lu his resignation Mr. Gehlhar
gives as a reason for the step the
prrsecre of private business af
fairs. I If was elected district at
torney in November, 1916. and
prior to that served two terms as
connty clerk of Marion county. In
1911 he resigned that office when
the troops were called to the Mex
ican border, being reappointed up
on his return; -
As district attorney Mr. Gehl
har made an excellent record.
During his entire term he has
stood between the county treas
ury and those who sought to set
tle neighborhood rows and priv
ate grudges by means of a crim
inal prosecution at the county's
expense. Full prohibition was
made effect Ire shortly after he
vent into office and his Incessant
search after bootleggers has made
Maiiou. county .one. ot the driest
counties In the state. The rec
ords indicate that during his term
approximately 100 prosecutions
were brought tor enforcement of
the prohibiten laws, most of those
arrested pleading guilty. Ot the
contested liquor cases there has
not been a single acquittal and on
ly one hung jury. This Is consid
ered a remarkable record.
Fanri Will Have Attention
The care and conscientiousness
with which Mr. Gehlhar has con
ducted the office Is indicated by
the fact that during his entire
term as criminal prosecutor, not a
single indictment was ever round
defective by the court, and fur
thermore that the validity of not
a tingle indictment was ever ques
tioned in court.
Ills thorough familiarity with
the county's business affairs such
as road and bridge matters and
the general conduct of county bus
iness has done much toward the
rmooth operation of these depart
ments. In his resignation Marion
county lrses an efficient and val
uable oit.ploye. .
Mr. Gehlhar owns and operates

taining ever 160 acres, of prunes
and cherries, mostly In bearing,
