Dolan and Elseley and Garvln Were
the Only Salvage That the Repub
licans Were Able , to Retain Some
Very Large'Sized Majorities.

Tuesday's city election In Norfolk
brought a democratic "landslide" that
carried practically the ontlre demo
cratic ticket to victory with a range
of majorities that startled even the
democratic loaders. Of the repub
lican ticket C. F. Elsoloy for police
Judge and S. W. Gnrvln for First ward
councilman wore alone elected. The
$21,000 school bond issue carried the
day by a vote of 575 to 115.
The election was marked by an un
usual amount of Independent voting ,
Most of It was done by the republican
voters , the straight ballots Indicating
that the democrats as a whole did
not jump far from tholr party linos.
The range of majorities was greater
than Is customary in Norfolk'eloctlons.
The spirit of hope which had sprung
up In the hearts of many republicans
as election day drew to a close , was
crushed by the first load of democratic
ballots taken from the ballot boxes.
Before the canvass of the votes promi
nent democrats conceded that the re
sult might be close. As the monoto
nous counting of the white ballots
progressed It became apparent that
while the energetic campaign carried
on by the republicans had won some
democratic votes , largo sections of the
republican ticket had been deserted by
republican voters.
Unofficial figures place M * . Dur-
land's majority at 187. The mayor-
elect took no part In the campaign ,
but save for City Treasurer Haaso he
polled the largest vote of any man on
the ticket.
Among the republican candidates
losing by narrow margins and whoso
defeat may bo attributed wholly to
the democratic tendency of the voting
were Chris Anderson , candidate for
city clerk , and M. C. Ilnzon and C. P ,
Parish , nominees for the school board
Anderson lost by17 votes , Ilazen by
19 and Parish by11. . Tom Shlvbly
was elected over Parish by the vote
of the Fourth ward , where Shlvely
was looked on as the local candidate.
Judge Elsoley , the only successful
republican candidate on the general
city ticket , was elected' by only M
votes despite the fact that his oppon
ent , Police Judge WesterVolf , Imd' ' pub
licly declined to be a' candidate. "The
lemocrntic label was nearly enough
to send the office seeking 'the man.
In the election of counc'llmeM 'the
movement was not wholly democrnllc.
In the Fourth ward It is said that
Dolan'.s Vote was not counted but
merely "estimated. " In the flrat ward
Garvln worked up a private landslide
of his own , securing an unusual ma-
lorlty In the fact of democratic vie-
.ory.As predicted In The News the $24-
000 school bond Issue encountered no
serious opposition. The vote on the
jond Issue was nearly the same In all
the wards , the total majority In ap
proval standing at430 votes.
The total Vote cast on the head of
the ticket Tuesday was 757 votes not
an unusually large vote In view of
: he favorable weather conditions ;
Few women took advantage of the
opportunity to participate In the
school election.

An Active Campaign Toward Pcrmn-
nant Rends Southeast and Northeast
of the City Will be Attempted Rend
Districts to be Asked for Help.
Recognizing that good roads are an
miKirtnnt factor In bringing retail
rado to a town the dlicctors of the
'ommorclal club have voted to work
'or the immodlnto Improvement of
onio of the poorer country roads load-
ng Into Norfolk. The roads whloli
lie directors have In mind as domniid-
ng Immediate attention are the llrsl
lalf mile of road east of the Norfolk
venue bridge over the Notthfork and
he piece ol road north of the brldgo
vhlch crosses the Northfork above the
am and betwven the M. & O. trnoK
ml the bridge.
At the morning mooting of the board
a resolution was adopted that every
losslblo effort of the Commercial club
hould be made to hnvo those strips of
ountry road Improved. These roads
v'oro characterized as the poorest
about the city and as offering an ob-
taclo to Norfolk's retail trade from
he north and east. If the plans of
he Commercial club succeed a liberal
supply of gravel will bo used In good
road making on those toads.
As the roads are outside of the city
Imlts the directors hope to Interest
ho road districts In the Improvements ,
f additional llnanclnl help Is needed
ho club may find some way of ren
lering assistance.
No other action of public moment ,
vns taken at the Tuesday mooting.

the , $ : i,2IO.OI ! ) .
Cost of building the Ilhilr school at
this time , Including heating , plumb
ing. electric wiring and black boards ,
$ : i8,00I.OO. (
Looking at the proposition from a
blonder standpoint the question Is ,
will a building leconsti noted either
from the second Hlory. the Ilisl story
or the foundation be a rood building
when Mulshed ?
Mr. Salisbury showed mo a sketch
of your building and I hnvo a good
Idea of It.
1 want to say emphatically that on
your present foundation yon can not
const mot a modern school house , for
the reason that
First New foundations and now
lines , two for each room about 2 fool
by It foot each , would have to bo
built for boating and ventilation.
These Hues by ronson of the plan
of your building could not bo located
so as to do the best work.
Second The loft hand wall of onoh
school room would hnvo to hnvo about
110 square feet of glnss. If Hint ninny *
windows are Inserted In the wall It
would effect the foundations and the
corners would piobnbly go down.
Third Wardrobes should bo along
the oxtorlor wall and should have ex
terior windows and this would bo Im
possible In your piohont plans.
Them should bo one wnrdrobo Im
mediately adjoining each loom.
Fourth Your rooms are nil a had
Fifth The hlnckbnnrds space In
your school rooms would bo had. A
modern school house should hnvo the
front wall resorxod for blnekbomds
exclusively without any lines , olosols
or Interference because Hint Is the
only blackboard the children can see
Sixth A modern heating ami venti
lating npparntus requires great depth
of holler room because most of the
boating cells are In the bnsemont.
None of your looms would bo deep
enough for a holler room.
Seventh A modern high school
building should bo divided In two as
to the sex.
The gills should have one stairway
exclusively lending to the toilet rooms
In bnsenient and to their piny gioiind
and the boys should have one stair
way exclusively From those stair
ways both the building and the play
giound should bo reached with ease.
Eighth You hnvo not a chimney
large enough.
Ninth Outside basement openings
would have to bo broken for the boatIng -
Ing and ventilating npparntus.
Tenth The boating and ventilating
apparatus would ho awkward proposi
tion's ns your building Is planned.
Tin-he of course are trilling matters
and they and others constitute the de
tails of a modern school house.
.It would bo money Illy spent to at
tempt tp use any part of the present
bnlldlng1 even If you could save one-
half the cost of a new building.
There would bo no credit In It for
any one and in n few years your board
would , , bo heartily condemned for the
If you could , however , reconstruct
the present building for a grammar
school with a view of building a high
school In the future say In live or ten
jjears ; that would bo another proposl-
tjon. You might then cheaply recon
struct this building and call It a poor
building , putting in such h > 'nt and
ventilation as Is possible and g > vo it
as near the required regulation of
light as Is possible , have the ward
robes the best you can and get along.
But you make a great mistake If you
will attempt to make out of the pres
ent ruin a high school building which
Is worthy of your town.
Towns like Blair , Fairbury , Has
tings and other towns have set a high
level for school houses.
Nebraska City Is voting bonds for
a building to cost about $05,000.00 and
I don't believe jour town wants to
take a backward stpp
If you build you should build an as
sembly room for about twenty-five or
thirty more seats than you have pu
The Blair might not be large enough
for you.
You can find n full description of
the Blair building In "Fowler's yearly
report when ho was superintendent of
schools of Nebraska.
