Passed off Quietly Two Tick

Tlie election for city officers Tues
day, was not such a tame affair as
had Is'en exHt'ted, yet there was no
excitement, and the day passed off
quietly with two tickets In the field,
Instead of one, as had been expected.
It was uot expected that more than
50 votes would lie cast with the one
ticket in the field, but when the
other ticket came out, more interest
was manifest aud the vote was run
up to 136. The ticket as published
last meek was elected. The other
ticket contained the names of 8. B.

of the names of Harry Bailey and A.

Cattle Buyer At Pelican Bay.
A well accredited story comes from
Pelican Bay that an old man past SO
years of age apiearedln that locality
a few weeks ago, ostensibly from the
Prlneville country, and for the pur
pose of buying cattle. He engaged
Hansen's cattle, a bunch of about
150 head, and hired Jesse Coxto drive
them to Grass Valley where he pro
posed to winter them. Hansen decid
ed he could make a good thing and
he bought some cattle of Brown, so
as to speculate a little In the trade
with the old cattle buyer. The latter
let it be understood that he had a
ranch at the head of the McKenzio
River, one near Prlneville and anoth
er In Grass Valley.
A few days ago, his business requir
ed that he should go to Klamath
Falls at once. He desired a tempor
ary loan for his Immediate accommo
dation. Hansen gave him 50, Cox
gave him another $ 20 and It is said
he was generously supplied with
some money by others. Cox was to
meet him In Klamath Falls; he was
there at the appointed time, but the
old man was not there and nothing
has been heard as to his whereabouts
since, though Cox has been in eager
search of him, the promised job, and
the $20 he loaued, since.
He went to a sheep much near
Keno. He was told the old man had
a bag of gold coin and a big check
Hansen has his cattle on his bauds
on which the old man paid nothiug
aud ho has also tho GO head ho got of
Browu to feed through tho wlute.
They are mystified as to the disap
pearance of the old man.
It Is explained that he learned in
Klamath Falls ho could buy cattle
cheaper near Trluevlllo than there.
