The coroner's Job was the first one to produce a nominating petition. That was where the only contest was for priority on ^ 1 he ticket. The present coroner W. rn u.

(A*)— United States mail clerks were the only indntduals to file Illinois primary petitions today. They' sorted tao big mail bags of them and deposited them with Secretary of State Emmeraon. The bags will remain untouched until the Chicago injunction la dissolved.  Lewis Vogel, head of the elections department under Secretary Funnier-too, said he would not receive the petitions until tall legal barriers ait removed.  We’re not even going to talk about it,” Mr. Vogel said.  Illinois, which for several month* has not been certain whether it would have Apili primaries, Septem-" ber primaries or no primaries, will go to the pi>Ha April IO to pick its candidates fob*' ’u, ai only and other offices, '"(ptea* /reierences be-a    tween preluder., a1 candidates and  ||    elect new atta «f party committees.

With the city traffic committee engaged in a study to reorganise the system of boulevard stops in Alton, the directors of the Alton Automa-bile Club have outlined a aeries of suggestions as to what street should be designated as boulevards which have been transmitted to Mayor Butler and the City Council.  The Auto Club officials take the aland that casual placing of crossing atop signs is not wholly effective, and that many might well be replaced with hazard signs and the atop regulations applied to an organized boulevard system embracing the arterial highways through the city.  The following streets are suggested for complete boulevarding:  Ail streets embraced in State Route 3.  Main from Broadway to College  College from Rodgers to Central.  Brown from College to Seventh.  Central from College to Seventh.  Henry from Fifteenth to Broadway.  Ninth from Henry to Belle.  Attention also is directed to advisability of trying to make the connection for cross-town traffic between Brown and Henry streets by way of Union or by way of Seventh.

The filing of the contest was foreshadowed recently in the Telegraph in a report of a meeting of the voters of the district. Today the contest was filed in the circuit court chal letting the election returns, first on the ground that the whole election was illegal and second on the ground that invalid votes were erroneously counted in favor of th# bond issue proposal    „    „     4   The affidavit on which the contest is started was signed by Charles L auth and wife.

It is alleged that) there were 739 votes cast in the election and that the returns were that there were 872 for and 366 against the bond issue. It is averred that the proposal did not receive a majority for the reason, It is said, 1« mutilated ballot* were counted in favor of the proposition whereas, it Is claimed, it was im possible to know the voters intent.

She marie a fire in the stove and went into a different part of the house. Later, returning to the kitchen, she found the room filled with smoke so she could not see a thing in the room. The fresh polish on the stove was getting hot and was making the smoke but the housewife thought the place was on fire Running across the street to the home of Walter Leu* she informed the Laux family that her house was on fire.  Mrs. Laux had had all the experience she wants for a while with fires during the year of 1927, so she hurried to the telephone and called the fire department. Mr. Laux then hurried over to The Dehne place and on going in found no fire. The excited housewife said it must be in the attic so he got up there but found no fire. By that time the firemen had arrived on the scene. It had been raining hard ail morning and Ow firemen thought it would be a pretty hard thing to get a fire started on a day like this.  The firemen completed the investigation and determined the fact that the only fire in sight was in the stove and that the newly polished stove was supplying the smoke that caused the tenant to think the place was on fire.
