The vacancies to be filled are the office of mayor, three councillors and three membera of the school board. Monday was nomination day and the results were: .For mayor, Ernest Bennlon and J. A. Rirle; Councillors, D. F. Fowler, J. 'A. Mercer, J. H. Bridge, A. Coleman, Al. Miller and D. R. Toomer; School Trustees, Mrs. Olive Bennlon, J. H. Turner, J. Parkinson, A. Merkley, T. J. Davies, C. Jensen, C. Blurael., The biggest fight seems to be on the mayor,' not much excitement seems to he created over the other offices, however this may come later. On 'Moaday evening a meeting wai held In tinS town hall by the supporters df Mayor Bennion. A good, crowd wa^ in Mtendance, but the meeting not being- tliofoughly advertised, very few people knew anything of it. John Bridge, was appointed chairman 6t the' meeting. Secretary-Trea: surer Rich was called on for a few remarks. He In a few words spoke of the good work of Mayor Bennlon and the council In the past two years, and introduced ~ Mayor Bennlon, who was tlie.next/.'speajifer. ,/He arose with ,|great applause. Hftplft^orfli was well received by the audieiiciB,, being the same as in tho past term, which every Honest thinking man knows has been the very best that could have been given to a to;|fn under the existing circumstances. He desires to give the best service to his home and country wherever it may be.
