canvass all over tho county and the Im
pression prevailed that if any particu
lar one of the candidates wero in tho
lead it was Balllet, and there is no
nuestlon but had the election occurred
ten days or two weeks ago that Balllet
would have been electod on tho second
or third ballot. When the directors
commenced gathering those ou the
outer edge could at once see a sys
tematic attack ou the Balllet forces by
the leaders of the uelsel supporters.
t hunch there wero many who predicted
that the final ballot would find McCabe
nnd Porter In the heat they were dis
appointed, and the last ballot found
Beisel and Balllet together. The upper
end supported Belsei almost all of the
Mccaoe men railing to mm. ine
Porter men divided, but it left the
lower end candidate short on points.
What caused Balllet to lose strength
on the home stretch is put to several
causes, one a story that be had never
taught In the public school in the
county, another that he bad been asked
to resign irom ursinus uoiiege, ootn
false, yet It caught- tue upper end di
rectors and thev voted Beisel.
