COUNTY ATTORNEY SEES NO 0BSTACLI
Clerk Says His Purpose All Along
Was to Be Fair mad Right
to All Interests
On an opinion from County Attorney
Blabaugh, County Clerk Drexel has de
cided he will put the najiies of William
O. JL're and Henry Qstrom on the primary
election ballot. Discussing the matter Mon
day evening. Mr. Ostrora said:
"I feel that the candidates for 'this
office have a right to run, under Judge
Redlck's decision. Evidently certain mem
bers of the Board of County Commissioners
think differently. Then it become a ques
tion of putting your money out for every
step you take in the campaign. The law
certainly never contemplated this, and I
object to that sort of a proposition,
At a conference Monday afternoon County
Clerk Drexel told Messrs. Lre and Ostrom
and County Auditor Smith that he had
made up his mind to consult the county
attorney about the question.
"All I object to," said Mr. Drexel, "is
that It looks at present as if the county
I commissioners man ted to nominate me to
hold the sack, and if I have to do that I
will hold it right. But I desire to be fair
to all parties concerned, and the county at
torney's opinion will be good enough for
Slabangh Reaches Decision.
In accordance with this declaration, the
county clerk held a consultation with
Judge Blabaugh late Monday afternoon.
The latter took the evening to look up ths
status of the law and on Tuesday morning
went to the office of the county clerk and
gave it as his opinion that Mr. Drexel
should put the names on the primary bal
lot, with certain exceptions to be embodied
In the ballot for the various precincts of
the Fifth commissioner district.
County Attorney Blabaugh said:
"It seems plain enough to me that the
names of these candidates should go on
the ballot in the. district as formerly de
fined, with this qualification: That In cer
tain precincts voters rbould be notified not
to vote for commissioner candidates. For
Instance, In the Second and Fourth pre
elms of the Eleventh ward voters should
be cautioned not to vote for commissioner
candidates, and In ths Fifth precinct of
the Ninth ward the notice should be to
this effect: 'Do not vote for commissioner
north of Chicago or east of Twenty-seventh
avenue, Chicago to Dodge, or east of
Twenty-seventh, north of Dodge to Far
nam, or east of Twenty-eighth street. Far
nam to Dewey.'
"I ibink that with these Instructions
compiled with there is not likely to be
apy complication and I have so advised the
After receiving the verbal opinion of the
county attorney and looking over tbe map
as presented by Judge Blabaugh, Mr.
Drexel told Candidate Oeiroin that be
would follow the advice of tbe county at
torney and that no order of court would
be necessary to get ths names on the
