DR. S. D. FESS
Surprises Everyone by His
Strong Race, Plurality
LIGHT VOTE IS POLLED
Dr. Brown Probably Runs Second
-Ambrose Wins Close Fight
-Unofficial Results on
The beautiful weather Tuesday and
the fact that the farmers were far
behind with their work, caused a very
light vote In Highland county at the
Primary. The Republicans cast
about 2,000 votes and the Democrats
only about 1,000.
In the country districts the vote
was especially light. This worked to
the Injury of the Roosevelt candidates
for delegates, but even at that they
carried the county by over 200.
Dr. S. D. Fess, of Greene county, Is
the Republican nominee for Congress.
While It Is Impossible to secure exact
figures throughout the district there
Is no question but that Fess wins by a
plurality, anywhere from 500 to 1,000.
Judge Shoup, of Greene county, and
Dr. Brown, of this county, are run
ning close for second place with Judge
Shoup probably slightly In the lead.
Seth Brown, of Warren county, Is
fourth and R. A. naynes, of this
The great race of Dr. Fess was a
surprise to everyone, It having been
generally belIoved by all who had
studied the situation that the race
was between Judge Shoup and Dr.
Brown. Dr. Fess besides running well
in Greene county ran second in Clin
ton, second In Warren and first in
Brown and got a good vote in Cler
mont. Dr. Brown carried IIlghland.CHnton
and Clermont counties but the vote
was light In all of them. Over 3500
votes were cast In Greene county di
vided as follows: Fess 1910; Shoup
1053; Haynes 18,'l; Seth Brown 137;
H. M. Brown 72. This big vote gave
Dr. Fess and Judge Shoup a big advan
tage over their opponents, the vote
being light In all the other counties.
In the county the races for Probate
Judge and commissioners on the Re
publican ticket were beauties. Frank
R. Ambrose on the unoillcial returns
from all precincts has defeated II. G.
Simons by 44. For commissioners N.
R. Barrett, A. G. Cockerill and Frank
Crosen on the unotllclal returns are
nominated. The race between Crosen
and Shackelford, however, Is so close,
only 19 votes difference, that the ollll
clal count may change the result.
Except for Commissioners and Re
corder the Democrats had no con
tests. Iliestand, Kesler and Mat
thews were nominated, Sanders being
over 150 votes behind the lowest of
them. Parker easily defeated Stultz
for the nomination for Recorder.
Gov. Wilson carried the county over
Gov. narmon In the presidential
preference over 3 to 1. The Antl
Harmon delegates carried the county

Imports of Luxuries. '
Luxuries Imported into tlie United
States during the fiscal year which
ends with next month will exceed 200.
million dollars in value. Under this
terra "luxuries", are Included such
articles as diamonds, art works, laces
and embroideries, champagne and
other wines, tobacco and manufact
ures, thereof, ostrich feathers, artifi
cial (lowers, toys, perfumeries and
cosmetics, Jewelry, manufactures of
gold and silver, and numerous others
of this general character.
In many of these articles, especially
the more important ones, the Imports
of the fiscal year 1012 will exceed In
value those of any earlier year. Art
works, for example, show for the 0
months ending with March, a total
exceeding by 50 per cent, the highest
record of any earlier year, and will
approximate 40 million dollars In value
for the full fiscal year, as against 22)
million dollars In 1911 and 21 million
Diamonds will also show a lare
total for the fiscal year 1912. The 9
months' figures thus far received by
the Bureau of (Statistics, Department
of Commerce and Labor, show for
diamonds and other precious stones a j
total of 30 million dollars, indicating
for the full year a total of about 41
million dollars, thus exceeding the
record of any earlier year except 1910,
when the total was nearly 48 million I
dollars, and 1907, when the total was
42 million. Uncut diamonds will
amount to about one-fourth of the
grand totol of precious and semi
Laces and embroderlcs are also an
important factor in the general group
of "luxuries" or articles of voluntary
use, Imported. They will amount in
value In the current year to about 44
million dollars. The growth in the
Importation of this great group has
been very rapid, the total of 1902, a
decade ago, been less than 30 million
dollars and the increase in the decade
fully 50 per cent. This total of 44
million dollars Includes laces and em
broideries, edgings, lnsertlngs, ruch
lngs, trimmings, tucklngs, lace win
dow curtains, and other articles of
this general character, whether made
of cotton, silk or the group of raw
materials usually termed "fibers"
such as flax, ramie, etc. Those man
ufactured from cotton, however, form
more than three fourths of the total
value of the group.
The Bureau of Statistics this year
for the first time separates the group
"cotton, laces and embroideries", Into
Its principal constituents. The first
9 months under this new and more
detailed grouping shows, of cotton
embroideries, about 13 million dollars;
laces, about 11 million dollars ; iace
window curtains, three quarters of a
million dollars ; nets and nettings,
three quarters of a million ; and hand
made laces, a little over a half million
Other articles and groups of arti
cles which may properly be termed
"luxuries" are tobacco and manufact
ures thereof, which will amount for
the year to about 32 million dollars ;
toys, about 9 million dollars ; ostrich
and other feathers, artificial (lowers,
champagne and other wines, beads
and ornaments musical Instruments,
perfumeries and cosmetics, and man
ufactures of gold and silver.
