From the humdrum of a listless
campaign the voters of the second
ward of the cfty furnished a real
surprise yesterday w-hen by a great
majority they elected Johepn 11. aic
Maekn to the city council, by the
process of writing his name on the
ballot and the exceptional large ma
jority rolled up was a striking ex
amDle of the desires of the voters.
The vote in the ward as given out
stood. McMaken 137. Lindeman 57,
and this with the fact that some
thirty votes with Mr. McMaken's
name written in, but not crossed,
had been thrown out by the board.
but these were not .needed by Mr
McMaken as his majority reached
eighty in the ward. The voters evi
dently were very deslrlous or mak
ing their expression as it Is seldom
that such an overwhelming major
ity of the voters can be induced to
go to the trouble of writing in 'the
names of the candidates on the 'bal
The fourth ward once more decid
ed that they would give Councilman
John C. Brittain the recognition he
deserves for his good work in the city
council and elected him by the hand
some majority of iforthy-three, the
vote being, Brittain 99, A. R. John
son 56. Brittain is serving his first
term In 'the city council and has
made a very pleasing record as, a
member of the council and especial
ly as chairman of the cemetery com
mittee and it was this fact that
largely caused the voters to give
him the endorsement that they did.
The fifth ward was another scene
of the election of the independent
candidate to the office of councilman.
L. E. Vroman, former councilman.
being elected over Councilman John
W. Mauer by the vote of 94 to 34.
giving Mr. Vroman a majority of
sixty in the ward.
These were the only returns that
deviated from the ticket selected at
the citizens convention, but over the
city a scattering vote for mayor in
dicate a 'trend toward an independ
ent expression by the voters of the
city. The election of Mayor C. A.
Johnson was by a large majority of
the vote as none of the other names
written in came anyways near upset
ting the vote of the present mayor.
C. G. Frlcke was -given a very large
scattering vote over the city and a
number of the voters also gave Fred
Wagner & complimentary vote tout
none of these proved serious to the
candidacy of Mr. Johnson.
City Clerk Aubrey Duxbury .and
City Treasurer Hartford "were easy
winners and ' came under the wire
without opposition and the city clerk
will head the ticket in the point of
majority as his vote was some larg
er than the other candidates in al
most all the wards.
The political aspect of the cam
paign was forgotten as the demo
crats and republicans forgot party
lines and entered the polls to sup
port the candidate of their choice.
but one thing was made evident and
that was that the people of the com
munity desired to express themselves
as to the candidates and made clear
that there should be two candidates
for each office to allow the voter to
choose, and It is certain that at any
future conventions the voters will In
sist that there be two names sub
mitted for the different offices, un
less In exceptional cases.
The school board election gave At
torney A. G. Cole and Don C. York
handsome majorities in all of the
wards and while the name of Attor
ney A. L. Tidd was Vritten on the
ballot in a few wards it was not suf
ficient to give him anyways a dan
gerous vote to the other candidates.

ton was informed that a car belong

to start out to try and secure some
trace of the missine vehicle when
another message was received an

east of Union where it had evident

ing it and the owner is now rejoic

Ten Nebraska Counties Show This in
Tabulation by Phil Bross
Many Funds in Counties.
Lincoln, April 4. In ten Nebras
ka counties last year, taxes to sup
port the state government were great
er than those raised for local pur
poses, according to a tabulation of
figures made by State Secretary of
Finance Phil Bross, showing the dis
tribution of county taxes into funds
on the 1921 valuation.
With the state levy to onaintain
the administration $3.30 on each
$1,000 valuation, the following
counties worried along with their
own maintenance on these taxes on
Adams. $3.20; Cedar, $M0; Chey
enne, $3; Grant, $2.50; Lancaster,
$2.S5; Nuckolls. $2.70; Otoe. $2.20;
Phelps, $2.90; Seward, $3.23; York,
The Phelps county total includes
an average township levy of $1.90.
These counties had to raise such
funds as general, averaging 36 per
cent of the total; bridge, averaging
19 per cent; road, averaging 15 per
cent; poor aid, county farm, moth
ers pension, soldier relief, bond in
terest and sinking fund, emergency
and bridge special funds.
The average for all the counties,
according to Bross' totals, is $4.42
on the $1,000 valuation, for all the
ninety-three counties of the state, i
Cass, Deuel and Hamilton counties
just equalled the state taxes.
County taxes in Douglas county
amounted to only $3.S5, or 15 cents
