gate) this power to a committee consisting
of the mayor and clerk, Instead of doing it
Itself. There wss sn understanding among
many of the business men to have a non
partisan ticket, re-elect the present mayor,
a democrat, and two republicans council
men. The democrats had a caucus and did
not do thla So tho "taxpayers" nominated
a ticket also and nominated Buckman. who
was fifty miles away at hi sheep camp
and knew nothing of It, for mayor, snd
Webel to succeed himself aa member of the

mavor, Kimball, received a small ma
jority, and the two "taxpayers" nominees.
Webel and Ford, were elected by a two to
one vote. The mayor and clerk as a can
vassing board declared Webel not elected
because tits name appeared twice on the
ticket and a-ive the certificate of election
