re-nomination in a campaign in which
his alleged support of the so-called

the house last winter was made a
principal issue. These were the most
notable results of yesterday's Demo
It was a long swing of the political
pendulum which gave Hoke Smith the
nomination yesterday. Four years ago
he was elected governor of Georgia
by an overwhelming majority. Two
years a go he was defeated for re
nomination by Gov. Joseph M. Brown,
whom he had deposed as chairman of
the State railroad commission. This
year Brown and Smith were again op.
ponents for the renomination, and ac
cording to unofficial figures, Smith
carried eighty-one counties to sixty-.
one for Brown, with four counties yet
to hear from.
Brown gained the nomination two
years agu largely on the issue that
Georgia needed what his s'dpp.orters
called a business administration for
the sake of .the State's prosperity.
While there were other issues in yes-:
