The result of Tucsdoy's election
U told by the above figures. Very
little interest was taken In the affair
and It was rather on the sleepy
order from start to finish. There
was uo issue involved to arouse the
sentiment or Intense interest of the
voters, except the same issue that
has been before the people for the
past three years, and most of the
votes were cast as a matter of duty.
Of course there was the usual
good-natured rivalry between the
different candidates and some clcc
tionceting was done. It is human
nature for a man to desire to win
when he allows his name to go be
fore the people ns a candidate for
any office, and this feeling aroused
at least some of the candidates and
their friends to put forth quiet
efforts to secure votes. The total
vote cast was 6..
It appears that J. D. Davidson
did not know his name was going
ou the ballots as n candidate. When
he learned that his name appeared
on the primal ballots nnd that he
was securing votes at the poles, he
announced that he could not, titxlcr
any circumstance, accept the office
cvcti if elected, and nested notices.
doing all that he coufd to eliminate
himself ns a candidate. However,
he was elected, and it will now be
necessary for the council to choose
someone to succeed him.
