City Marshal Batte oalled at-
tention to the danger in crossing
the traok of the Sap at the depot,
owing to the fact that there are
no lights there at night. Trains
frequently move to and fro, and
people crossing* in vehicles are
liable to get caught. The city
attorney was instructed to inves-
tigate this matter.
Alderman Roas thought some-
thing ought to be done in regard
to some State convict oamps
within th.e city limits. Complaints
had beei^ made by citizens to the
council. After, some discussion
it was reporte^ that the convicts
had been removed, and the ques-
tion was dropped.
The council then consumed
some time in informal discussion
on several questions and finally
adjourned until next Monday
night, the time for the next reg

happy time was spent. The
snug little sum of four dollars
was realized, which will be added
to the building fund of the new
Methodist church. The Busy
Workers intend to give a dinner
in the Homan building the first
Monday in December, and we
hope for them much success.

The populists oarried Beat 8.
For justice of the peace, Amer-
son received 182 against 203 for
Williamson, the populist candi-
date. For constable, Meade re-
ceived 145 against 223 for All-
corn, the populist candidate.
The democrats elected Blakely
county commissioner for Pre-
cinct 3, in place of Lantrip, pop-
ulist. There was virtually no
contest on the north side of Lit-
tle river, and on that account
the democratic strength in
strongholds was not polled, the
loss being nearly 50 per cent, in
Beats 7 and 2.
