$106,000 more than was anticipated. The

DECLARED AO ELECTION.
State Board Passed LJion the Honti
ton Com nil as i oner Case.
Atlanta, Aug. 25.—The State School
Board of Education has reversed the de
cision of State School Commissioner
Glenn in the case of Smith vs. Wellons,
and has declared a vacancy in the office
of county school commissioner of Hous
ton county. After a careful examination
of the record, the members of the board,
Gov. Candler, Attorney General Terrell,
Secretary of State Cook and Controller
Genera] Wright held that George Smith,
who was elected commissioner last Feb
ruary, was not entitled to hold the place
on account of his not being a resident of
the counity at the time the election was
E. S. Wellons, the old commissioner,
was defeated by two votes when the elec
tion came off. Smith was declared elect
ed, but Wellons claimed that he was in
eligible to hold the position on account
of not living in Houston county. The
board based its decision on the point that
Smith was not a resident of Houston
county and had voted in Dooly county.
The board has declared a vacancy, and
State Commissioner Glenn will order an
other election to he held as soon as pos
sible. Since the last election was held,
six months have elapsed and Smith can
now hold the office If he can be elected
again. It is expected that he will be op
posed by Wellons, who was defeated, and
that the contest will be warmer than be
fore. The commissioner is elected by
the County Board of Education, and It Is
before that body that the election will
The attorneys In the case before the
board were R. N. Holtzclaw and W. C.

Atlanta. Ga.. Aug. 35.—Gov. Candler has
denied the petition of Hiram Sharpe for
clemency, sustaining the action of the
Pardoning Board. Sharpe will be hanged
next Wednesday, Aug. 29. in DeKalb coun
ty. The murderer, who, until yesterday,
had not heard of the petition for clemency
in his case, tiled last Wednesday, was told
this morning of the action taken by the
Governor in regard to the petition. He
realises the fact that there is no hope left
for him now, since the petition has been
denied. Thiß was no shock of disappoint
ment for him, however, as the gloomy
man has felt no hope at any time, ap
When asked what he thought of the pe
tition and of the action taken on It, he
bowed his head, and shaking it. said slow
ly: "God knows I don’t know what to
think about It.”
Sharpe seems to be ready to die and to
care little about when death will cotne. lie
had not even asked when he would be
taken from the jail until yesterday.
