teresting Figures For Our Republican
The votes ore all In and counted and tbe victory belongs to the Repub
licans. President McKinley carried tho county by 1(558, the largpst plurality giv
en to any state or natioual candidate in recent yeais. Ever- candidate ou tho
Republican state and county ticket was elected by a large plurality, although
a number fell below the bead of the ticket
County Commissioner E. L. FIHlus made a good run considering the
fact that it was a Republican land-slide. He reduced tho plurality M
Eber Hawkins by a wldo margin. Richard r. Palmer got a heavy vote.
Homer Borger had the largest plurality of any candidate on the count
The labor vote went to McKinley. It was believed by the Democrats that
this vote would come to their ticket. This explains the defeat of the ticket,

very becoming modesty, showing no
disposition to crow over their late op
ponents. It seems, instead, to be the
aim of all to join hands and work to
gether for four years more of good
times, legaidless of differences in po
