lie believes that. the vote inl Iichiland
lio conility has vindicated] him.
be- Mr. It. W. Haynes, senator elect
D. from Berkeley county, called atten
il- tion to the fact that in his county
Id ; is confusion because tile candidate for
ler supervisor who had received the see
ris, ond highest vote had not filed his
ig- affidavit in regard to his campaign
W. expenses. riie counity committee has
'h- not yet acted on the matter.
xy It was stated by one of the members
W. of the committee thlt ii his county
tt, the sne thing hiad happenied and the
d; committee had thrown out, all of the
il- votes for the officers affected and had
Irl- ordered a new primary, not a second
J. primary, but a new <ne. Gen. Jones
se, de imed that this wits the proper,
L. thing to do.
il, It was brouglht out that in the re
4; eeit primary some tickets for county
K. officers lad been deposited in the box
Ir- to receive tickets for state officers,
. 11141 vice versa. In soic counties such
rk. )llots were thrown out. Ii othier
ed counties they were counted. Mr. Stev
Pt. (11slonl and Mr. Ketchiin thought the
ed rules clear enouh.i. The use of two
)f- boxes is to ievent "plumping'' and
ik. all votes deposited in the wrong boxes
m- were so placed at their own risk. The
cle, cunt Vol comittees were advised by tile
State eoimittee to throw out, all bal
lots in the second primary wilicl had
been placed improperly.
56 The committee then adjourned. A
59 subcommittee will meet here on the
59 18ti of Septeinher to canvass tlie vote
18 in the second primary.
