Following their arraignment, they were returned to Jail In lieu of fur. nlshlng $3000 ball each. They are accused of firing a house at 30 A street. ' • POSSIBILITY that the county •*^rnay trade Its land along the new highway right of way, known as the Hudnut tract, for property situated Immediately south of the county jail in a policy of centralizing county property, was revealed today with the action of the board In appointing an appraiser to evaluate both properties. The Hudnut property lias a front- ago of a hundred feet or more along tlio right of way of the new state highway realignment, Chairman Perry Brltc said. Yot tills property, while desirable for commercial or business purposes, is not so valuable for tho county because of the fact that it is too far separate from the centralized county property on which the administrative group of buildings Is built. It is tho policy of the board to maintain tho county administrative group of buildings In a central location. For Instance, tho county garage, courthouse, jail and hall of records are not far distant from one another. In addition to this property the county owns the land east of F,l Tcjon hotel and tills may some day be the site for the county library. The property south of the Jail Is owned by some 15 or 20 different taxpayers. It would be a more logical geographical site for the county than the land In the Hudnut tract, the board believes. However, the board has not committed itself nor announced anything definite except to appoint Hugh Jewett UB an appraiser of the properties. The land owners may appoint their own appraiser and In this way establish a basis for bargaining should the board wish to effect any exchange also desired by the property owners south of the jail.

I seek re-election upon the basis of the work which 1 have accomplished, with tho assistance of fellow councllmen, during the present term. 10 Yean of Service Councilman Oarlock announced: "In asking re-election I offer my 10 years of service to my friends and neighbors In the Third ward as my chief qualification. I think those years offer adequate testimony that I huvo served on the council only to represent their wishes in city government. I admit I have not always had my way on tho board but I have never quit fighting for what I believe to be right. Chief among these beliefs In one for a closer scrutiny of nil city departments by the council, and whether re-elected or not, my civic efforts shall continue to bo pointed in that direction."
