REED IN RACE
Clancey of Salem Declares
He Does Not Want Fair
The names of Dan C. Freeman
and C. I. Herd were announced J
yesterday as being aspirants for
the secretaryship, of the state
fair board. At least ten men are
now candidates for the position.
C. H. Clancey, who has been re
peatedly mentioned as a 'candi
date for the position of secretary
of the state fair board, declares
that he Is not a candidate, never
fcas been, and that for business
reasons he could not accept the
position should it be tendered
It Is well known that Mr. Clan
cey has been looked upon as a
candidate and that bis name ha3
been seriously considered by
members of the fair board. Pre
sumably this is on account of the
great interest that he has always
shown in the state fair, by his
intelligent and active labor in its
behalf, lie is recognized as pe
culiarly fitted by training and In
natural ability for the position,
and Salem people will learn wltli
regret that the popular ex-kins
b?ii refuses, to permit his name
tG fro before the board.
Mr. Clancey states that his
business is such as to require hi
constant personal attention. Fur
ther than that, his life ambition
Las been to occupy a position of
independence, and that his busi
ness is now satisfactory and his
position In the world entirely to
bis own likinp. and he certainly
would not accept a political po
sition with five bosses over bim
and a general public licenced to
criticise his every act for political
reasons, regardless of whether or
not he was securing results.

School District Clerk
Is Liable for Funds
The clerk of a school district is
not relieved from liability for the
safekeeping of money of the dis

withstanding the district board or

him to do so and excuse him
from liability. This is the in
terpretation of the law by I. H.
