Voting for candidates for city office
in Salem on November 5th will b a.
commonplace affair and there will be no
thrills, except possibly in wards three
and seven where there are opposing
In regard - primary elections, the
lajv is that where a candidate receives
a majority of all votes east, he is lee
ted and other candidates in the contest
cannot come before tho voters at ths
Hence, for mayor, there will appear
on the official ballot the name of C
E. Albin. He was officially elected at
The sanio is true of Earl Eace, candi
date for city recorder, and C. O. Kice
for city treasurer. They are already
elected but their names of course will
go on the ballot.
For chief of police the race is be
tween Percy M. Varney and J. E(
Wright. At the primaries three eandi'
dates were in the field and no one re
ceived a majority of all votes castj
Hence Mr. Wright and Mr. Varney who
received the largest number of votes at
the primaries, become the candidates at
tho November 5th election.
In ward 1, there is no contest for
alderman. All that people living in
that ward may do ia to place a mark
after the name of B. W. Simeral and!
Fred J. Smith. Two aldermen aro-toj
b0 elected in each ward.
Ward 2 presents lio contest. All that'
voters need do is to place the check
mark in front of the names of D. Floyd
L. Utter and H. H. Vnndervort.
In ward 3, Otto J. Wilson was elected
for the long term. . For the short term
there is a contest between J. S. Austin
and B. E. Edwards.
Everything is lovely in ward 4. Paul
V. Johnson was elected at the primaries
for the long term and A. H. Moore for
tho short term.
In ward 5 it looked for a few days be
fore the primaries that no patriot would
offer to be candidate for alderman.
Howover, business picked up and on tho
day of the lection, resulted in the nomi
nation of Edward Schunke and Merlin
Harding. There is no contest.
Ward 6 will be represented in the
council to take its seat next January
by the two men who are now the ward's
representatives, W. A. Wiest a"d Janre-s
McClelland. No contest.
Ward 7 presents something worth
while to the voters. Ealph Thompson
was elected at the primaries and is safo.
But theiv was a close vote between H.
L. Clark and Dr. O. L. Scott at the pri
maries and this will have to be decided
i at tho November 5 election. Accordi
ing to general rumor, the contest will
bo most interesting.
Like Banquo's ghost, thvre is another
proposition that will not down in Salem
and that is what iq known as the. Rich
ardson initiative bill to be voted on nfc
tho eoming election. This is the proposi
tion of bonding the city of Salem for
all street improvements and that these
improvements shall be- paid from an an
nual levy. This idea of bonding the
city for al) street improvements was
once turned down by the voters.

MIS LADY WHO
Overhears Conversation That
Leads To His Recovery
Gains 18 Pounds.
"I have already gotten back about
eighteen pounds of the weight 1 lost
while sick, and now my health seems
to be just perfect,!' said Harry V.
Horlocher in a recent conversation at
the Matthespn fcotc 204 Columbia
street, Portland, regarding the bone
fits he has derived from the use of
Tanlac. Mr. Horlocher is a well known
carpenter and is employed by tho Stan
dif'cr Construction company, of Van
"On the 20th day of last .March,"
explained Mr. Horlocher, "I was tak
en down with an attack of stomach
poisoning ptomaine Tioisonhig, T . be
lieve they call it which "almost carried
me away, and since that time, until J
got Tunlac, nothing I would eat agreed '
with mo. What1 little I did manage to
cat would soon sour, causing gas and
terrible pain and misery, X lost my ap
petite almost entirely, and often just
the smell of anything, cooking would
make mo dreadfully sicH at my stom-
ach. My food evidently did me no
good, as I fell off from one hundred
and eighty pounds to ono hundred and
fifty. 1 just had to lay off from my i
work, as 1 felt too weak, and exhaust
ed for several weeks to even attempt
to do anything. Just climbing np the
stairs to my room .wpuld exhaust me
and take all of my energy. I was consti
pated all tho time, had headaches, and
noticed that my norves were going all
to pieces; as I couldn't get a good
nightg sleep. Nothing did me any good,
and I had become uneasy aud worried
about my condition.
"One day while in the Owl Drug
Store I happened to overhear a lady
who was buying a bottlo of Tanlac,
tell the man who was waiting on her,
that she had been Buffering from stom
ach trouble for years, and that Tanlac
was the only medicine she had ever
taken that did her any good. Well, she
didn't know it, but just that little re
mark of hers sold mo a bottle of Tanlac
right then and there and if I only
knew her name I would like to thank
her for putting me onto the thing that
has given me back my health and
strength. My stomach feels now like it
is in just as good shape as it ever was.
And such an appetite as I do have! I
b'.'li"ve I could eat five meals a day
without suffering a particle after
wards. By using tho Tanlac Tablets in
connection with -Tanlac I have been
relieved of constipation, and I'm nev
er bothered any more with headache.
I now feel a hundred per cont strong
and well, and am putting in full time
at my work and I certainly do think
Tanlac is a great medicine."
