COUfJTY VOTERS 11 BE INTERESTED IfJ HOT CONTESTS Board of Freeholders to Be Selected;. Candidates Close Campaign. Alameda county voters' interest In the outcome of Tuesday's election In divided between the larper statewide contests and a number of interesting local races. In addition, voteri here will select the board of freeholders to draft a county charter which will be submitted for approval at a later date. 'Election officials look for a heavy vote because of the wide Interest In the issues at stake In Tuesday's balloting. The county has total registration of 198.265, of whom 165.746 are Republicans nd 29,691 ar Democrats. While not strictly a county contest, there Is probably major Interest here In the race for membership on the state board of equalization from the second equalization district, of which Alameda county is a part, due to the fact that the Incumbent, Joseph McDonald Kel-ley, and both his opponents are Eastbay residents. Kelley. whose longr experience as a county supervisor, county assessor and on the county board of equalization, as well aa his record of service on the state board, have won wide approval throughout the district and his re-election--Is expected. He la opposed by Fred E. Stewart of Oakland, and John F. Don-Aero of Berkeley. Both have toured the district, which Includes Is Bounties, In the campaign to defeat Kelley, but the mala opposition to the Incumbent haa developed here through a local factional contest, which Is not reflected throat-host the district aa a whole. CAMPAIGN FOR 6HERIFF. Chief Interest In the county races appears to be over the competition tor sheriff. In which Frank Barnet, the Incumbent, who has served for more than SO years, is opposed by two candidates. One of them. Chief of Police Burton F. Becker of Piedmont, was a candidate against Barnet four years ago. The other is Charles W. Culver, former fire chief af Emeryville. All three candidates have conducted active campaigns. .Another spirited eontest is that for district attorney. District Attorney Earl Warren Is opposed by Preston Higglns, a former deputy district attorney. Warren has won a succession of strong endorsements and his record has been meeting with much approval. Although this fight has been hotly contested and considerable activity shown by Warren's opponent, the indications point to the district attorney being retained In office. The office of county assessor is another plum inspiring a hot battle. County Assessor Lduls J. Kennedy is opposed by Harry G. Williams, Oakland city auditor and assessor. A series of charges and counter chargers about the manner of conducting the campaign has marked this race, engendering con siderable feeling. Both candidates have been very active and successful in obtaining endorsements of various civic and political bodies. Observers of local politics claim to be at sea over the outcome of this race. There axe also contests for the offices of public administrator, the Incumbent, Albert E. Hill, being opposed by George E. Ehelden, secretary of the Uptown Association; and for county auditor, ths Incumbent, E. F. Garrison, being opposed by Lawrence J. Hills. The Interest in these fights has been overshadowed by the other contests and what speculation there has been over the outcome has leaned toward the Incumbents retaining their Jobs. INCUMBENT CONFIDENT. x A divided field has given ths incumbents considerable edge in the competition for two police Judges. Polloe Judges E. J. Tyrrell and W. 3. Hennessy have both expressed confidence over the outcome of the voting. They ars opposed by Victor A. Dunn, J. W. Ravens and Howard Bacon. The legislative races are in most tBstaaoec in ths nature of a "free-dot-alL" In both senatorial dis-Sriota in whloh elections occur this wear, . the fourteenth and the sixteenth, the incumbents face a field Of two opponents. Senator Tom C. jWeet of Alameda 1c opposed by W. Herbert Graham and William H. Hollander, each of whom has waved a vigorous campaign. In the sixteenth. Senator Edgar 8. Barley Is fighting for his seat vgatnet Joseph T. Falner and Frank V. Cornish, the latter a Democrat trying for the Republican nomination as wall. Za the assembly fights, there Is annoh Interest la the eontest in the thirty -sevanth district, where the only woman candidate from this county for the legislature, Mrs. Harriet A. Haas, has been, making remarkable rains. Mrs. Haas, a lawyer by profession and for many years a member of the Piedmont Board of Education, has been waging a whirlwind campaign and drawing support which has filled her backers with- confidence. Bhe Is opposing the incumbent. Assemblyman Eugene W. Roland, and Walter Fieberllng. In all but two of the other aembly districts the incumbents are Battling with one or two oppo nent. Is Berkeley, where Mrs. Anna Baylor withdrew as repre sentative of the forty-first assembly district, two Republicans, Frank T . creely and H. C. Xelsey, are contesting for the Republican nom ination against J. O. Davis, a Dem ex-rat, seeking both nominations. In the thirty-fifth district, where Assemblyman Homer Spence retired from the field, H. M. Bradley, drawins veteran nnwirL anrl Rnv Bishop, with labor, backing, are contesting to succeed him. Assemblyman William P. Jost of . Ilayward, in tbs thirty-fourth district, is the only assembly candidate without a contest.

FIRST PLACE II PRIMARIES Shortridge's Renomination Is Assured, Being Only Ques-- tion of Majority. (Cont. From P. I, Main Newi) bay district, it Is not counted sur-flclent to make him a contender throughout the state. It la generally admitted tnat tne gubernatorial race is going to be close, with Richardson snowing marked . gains during the , past week, which his supporters claim will be sufficient to give him the nomination. The Young forces, on the other hand, appear to be sanguine that their man will be in the lead when the ballots are countea. n thla section of the state they ex press confidence In an overwhelming majority in the city of Los Angeles. It la being claimed by sources favorable to Young that the majority within the olty limits of Los Angeles will be suf ficiently heavy to overcome any lead Richardson may gain In the Active participation of banking Interests in the gubernatorial cam paign has been one of the features of the last week. In Los 'Angeles the backing received by Young from a large chain system of banks rxnnsed and which nas aroused that part of banking fra- tarnitv oDDosed to the activities of the particular chain of banks, San Francisco also is being claimed by a substantial majority bv the Young managers, although th Richardson forces do not con cde this, arguing that Godcell's strength across the bay will cut in heavllv on the vote Young expects. The Governor has been making steady gains on this side of the bay and his show ot strength in Berkeley has been much discussed in the last week. His speech before the nnklnnd Forum luncheon at tne Hotel Oakland on Tuesday won him manv friends and he was accorded another ovation by Eastbay voters when he told the story of economy and efficiency in state affairs on Thursday night at an enthusiastic mamtina- in Berkeley. Another indication or. tne trena was seen in the report received vesterdav bv Richardson headquar ters from Colusa that the Republi can county central committee there which had previously enoorsea Young, had reconsidered its action and voted an endorsement of the Governor. The other candidates ror the Jte- mihiirnn nomination have Deen busv. mostly in soutnern uauiorma and have not made tneir eiions felt in the bay district. They are R. F. McClellan, chairman of the T,o Aneeles board of supervisors; W. D. Mitchell, Fresno, banker, and Mayo Thomas of Los Angeles. Tne latter provided a little gayety to the closing days of the campaign by belng the first with emphatic claims of victory. The fight is won for Thomas, his campaign head quarters have announced, pointing out that the Republicans win pou vote of 860,000 throughout tne tate and that Thomas win get 460,000, or more than all the rest of the candidates together. FITTS FAVORITE ' IN BETTING ODDS. In the contest ror tne lieutenant governorship, Buron R. Fitts, for mer state commander of the Amer ican Legion, and now chief deputy district attorney of Los Angeies, has developed formidable strengtn in this section of the state and has been a favorite in betting odds. He has proved a popular campaigner and his supporters are run or. con- ftdence. However, his two oppo nents, Speaker Frank F. Merriam and former Senator Lyman i King, both come from southern California and are likely to cut in on his vote heavily in that end of the state.

Although Alameda county s Democtatlc central committee is divided in its allegiance Detween the McAdoo and Phelan wings of the party, Dackweiler and his running mats, Justus S.

Youths Return To French Town vvra. MM '" U W itniviexicoKjuiuf Bacelonette in Southwestern France Called Village of Americana. By HENRY JUSTIN SMITH Special Corwpondene of The g' TRIBUNE and tha Chtco Daily Newi. g PARIS. France, Aug. 25. Alonig. a river bed high among the moun- tains of southeastern France lies , a town which has established an unusual link with America. It is spoken of. in the region whose chief city1s Barcelonette as the village of the Americans." But it Is more than a village; it is good-sized community, with stores, hotels, churches and villas the more remote oi wuh.ii. --- the environs or Barceionenc. buildings some, like the church nrtnth century by DUllb m-wiw . " " ..... J Queen Anne of Province, ... r.w Tiandsom. oia; umcio .. , -- i and touched by tne foreign taste. Kvnm this town, named Jausiers, between 8000 and 4000 young men have Journeyed during the last sixty or seventy years to ivib -r seek their fortunes. With few exceptions they have returned with more money than they could ever have earned farming the difficult soli around Jausiers. If has been a determined sentiment with them to rebuild and oeautuy tne ii..-lly properties and to give comf orts - to the "old folks" leu loneiy uU-ing their . exlje. - In Mexico the men from Jausiers have concentrated in the state ot Guadalajara, where, despite their agricultural tradition, they have worked as merchants or warehousemen. It is said that there are now in Guadalajara about BOO young men from the French village of Americans." The origin of this queer movement, according to Honor Char-panel, postal employee in Jausleres, and himself one of those who Wed his luck in Mexico, Is a peculiar fragment of history. Charpanel has been told that at the time of the ill-starred attempt to seat Maximilian of Austria on the Mexican throne, a few men from Jausiers were among the French, troops in the invading force. Some of these "P.auslers boys" chose, or were compelled to linger in Mexico,, of whose varied states they liked Guadalajara the best. Some returned, after long years, to their home town and persuaded kinsfolk to take up the adventure. Amons; those earliest emigres, it is said, were the .brothers Manuel, and the brothers Pauffred and Ebrard. CHANGED CHARACTER. Around Jausiers are many little estates, carefully walled in and adorned in a manner suggesting the influence of tropical America. They lie there in the" feverish sun of the Midi, itself a reminder ef those distant hot lands where fortune wss sained. Behind these nrnlla live middle-aeed men. with I their families, whose one romance It haa been to seize fortune in Guadalajara. They have departed from fundamental French charV acter In aojournlng so long in fir-strong country, and they have done . an exceptional thing in wresting a competence from difficult Mexico, lnstesd of seeklnr easier money. These are among the reasons why chauffeurs of party-cars tourlnf ths Alps point out as one of thl eights ot the road this "village ol the Americans," and whl it is here by recommended to sociologists as a field for study. .
