The result of the county vote is most
encouraging to the Republicans who
have made a square fiht for the
straight ticket. Unoflicinl returns have
been received from every precinct ex
cept Herington. It is only known that
that place gave Seeds 78 majority. As
Ben Peck has 97 majority in the re
mainder of the county it elects him bj
18 votes. There is a possibility that
the official canvass tomorrow may
change the result, but it is not likely.
John A. Anderson hss about 1000,
over Tobey and every other man on the
Bepuhlican Suite and county ticket has
from 400 to 800 majority.

The Reflectok had more accurate

news from Dickinson county jesterday
than either of the central committees
or any other paper. The Reflectoh
gives the news.
W. S. Anderson can Gil the office of
clerk of lite district court in a thor
oughly capable manner. His handsome
majority was no more than was ex
pected and was a deserved honor to his
ability and standing.
TJ. M. Anderson, vho thought the

fanner (himai-lf) was right, only the
race was toward Salt river instead of
