of representatives of the administra

him their support for the nomination

599 Bodies at the Morgue.
At the morgue this morning the
coroner's list showed 599 bodies have
been recovered.
The majority of the dead recovered

sented tho location south of tho O.
R. & N. track, secured 158 slgm-rs U)
tho paper ho carried.
The reason given by those who
signed for tho old poor farm site or
some other place to tho south of tho
railroad, was that the majority of the
patrons of tho school llvu south of
the track, and that If tho building
was put thoro their children would
not havo to cross the truck at all, or
until tliey reached such an ugo that
thoy would bo unlet to tako euro of
themselves. Further, there was al
ready ono building In tho vicinity of
tho baseball grounds, and therefore
thu new building should bo put furth
er away to equalize tho distribution.
Tho nature of tho location was also
gone into, it being claimed that tho
place chosen by tho school board was
on a gravol bar, that It would cost
nearly J000 to fill In to proparo it for
growing trees, or grass, and that It
was also Uablo to bo Inundated In
tho spring by tho heavy floods. Tho
opponents of tho sito remember tho
tlmo when It was undor three or four
feet of water during tho spring
floods, and aro afraid that tho base
ment would ho flooded each year and
tho place would prove gonerally unde
sirable when tried.
Tho two petitions will bo presonted
to tho board at their next meoting,
and It Is certain now that soma other
placo will bo selected, au tho board
has promised to abldo br tho wishes
of a majority of tho patrons,
