In the first primary on Tuesday a
very heavy vote was cast- throughout
the state. The returns in the races for
the various county offices and in the
contests in the various congressional
districts and judicial circuits have
-ome in rapidly, but owing to the fact
that there was opp sition in only
one race for state offices, the vote
for state officers has come in slowly,
and it is as yet impossible to predict
definitely the outcome of the race for
railroad commissioner. John G. Mob
ley will be in the second primary and
will run either with Mr. Earle or Mr.
Garris. The vote heard from up to
this time is as follows:
John G. Mobley ..........14,148
