When the hard working election officials canvassed the vote they recorded one vote for president of the village board-on the independent ticket. The successful candidate was James Gaiowich. No candidate filed petitions to have their names placed on the ballot and unless others file between now and election day. Mr. Galowich with his one vote for himself probably will be elected without serious opposition. Gen. Feland Succeeds Capt. C. H.
