MAYOR AT TUESDAY'S ELECTION

AMONG MUNICIPAL OFFICERS AFTER APRIL ELECTION.
A very heavy vote was polled in
yesterday's democratic jaimary in the
fit y and the result wa a surprise
to many in some of tho races.
Th( candidates were busy early
getting out tho voters and never re-
laxed activities until the polls closed
at soven o'clock last ulght.
Tlio race for mayor i routed the
most Interest where it w:is conced-
ed that tho race would be close. It
was believed by n.any that the pres-
ent Incumbent Mayor Coiner would
bo returned the winner. When the
votes were counted however they
had another tale to tell. Out of 127'J
votes cast for mayor Dawson receiv-
ed 711 and Cotner 563; a majority
of 110 for Dawson.
Th race for treasurer of the sehool
board was the next In importance
with four candidates entered in the
race. Wallnce was elected over Itus-
soll by a majority of 227 votes he
receiving 66 votes while Russell
polled 423 with onep roc I net unre
ported. The other candidates receiv-
ed resiMjctlvely. Lynn 39 Pate 107.
The race for commissioners from
the Third and Fourth wards devel-
oped into a swift contest. In tho
third ward llrldgiium the present
incumbent la returned by a majority
of 52 over Shelton. bridgtuan re-
ceiving (ilia votes and Shelton 603.

TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND TONS A DAY
WILL BE CAPACITY
"I did not help you to eleci this
mayor" said S. L. Vandiver of At-
lanta Ga. today "but 1 will help
you elect the next oue. How are
your prices on property.' I must look
about for a home or a vacant lot
on which to build. Ardmore is going
to make a city. It will grow faster
than you people can realize the die
has already been ;ast and tha town
is making its last final start town-J
the city class today."
These are the exact words of the
Atlanta railroad man and asphalt
mine owner. Mr. Vandiver will re-
turn to Georgia tomorrow but one
of his partners J. T. Paschal of the
same city -will remain here. Mr. Pas-
chal also wants to buy Ardmore
property for a home.
Thee gentlemen together with
their company own the mines at
Woodford. They have been waiting
for water but they wrll not wait
any longer. Arrangement have been
made to secure water from a well
and the work of refining alphalt will
be pushed with energy. Mr. Paschal
will remain hero to do that portion
of the work.
The company is figuring with Mr.
Dings on the proposition of running
a gas pipe line from the gas fields
637 votes and Owen 611.
In the raco for school board trus-
tees there was no contest two were
lo be selected from each ward and
as there were but two candidates
from each ward selected this race
wa.s easy to forecast.
Hruee und Heffncr were chosen
from the First ward. Fraley and
Smith from tho Second Andarson
and Kyrno from the Third Shluholaer
and Young from the Fourth.
A singular coincidence In tbe race
for mayor Is the fact that It. L.
Dick defeated Mik. Gorman by ex-
actly tho same majority that Daw-
boii received in yesterday's election
in their race for the same office
four years ago.
Ycsturd'iy'g election although one
of the most active and one in which
unusual interst was manifested waa
one of the quietest and most or-
derly ever held in the city.
There was a slight mistake in the
above figures. The telephone comuuu-
nlcatlon that conveyed the figures
to the Ardmoreite last night showed
that ikard had won for commiselonon
from tho Fourth ward over Owen iby
26 votes. Tho official figures compiled
by Uie county election board today
shows that Ikard's majority is but
