The meeting was called to order at

Hunter being at his post of duty. There
* were about twenty-five members of the
County Chairman Dominick recited
the fact that the second primary in
v Newberry had been postponed, for the
reasons already fully published; that
since then the State committee had
met and declared the results of the
first primary, had ordered a second
primary for attorney general to be
held on October 15, and had recommended
that in the counties where
primaries for county offices were still
v * necessary that they be held on this
date. County Chairman Dominick said
that in Newberry county second races
were necessary for one member of the
house of representatives, county super
intendent of education, supervisor,
county commissioners, and magistrates
for two townships, Nos. 10 and 11.

ond primary for Newberry county be

mentioned above, and that the same
managers act. Mr. J. B. Bedenbaugh

The matter of magistrate in No. 11
township was brougnt up oy Mr. Eugene
S. Blease, who stated that Mr.

110 township, been counted. County
Chairman Dominick said Mr. Richard

and asked that the committee take it
up. Mr. E. S. Blease thought if the
A xabulating committee had overlooked
Bp these two votes and they would change
IT the complexion of the second race, that
^ Mr. Richardson ought to have them if
he was entitled to them, the primary
for magistrate being simply a recommendation
for appointment, anyway,
t and Mr. Blease moved that a commitr
tee of three be apointed to tabulate
again the vote for magistrate for Xo.
11 townsmp ana investigate tms matter
particularly. The motion was
adopted, and Messrs. W. A. McSwain,
Geo. B. Aull and T. J. Wilson were
appointed on this committee. The
committee was instructed to report its
findings to the chairman and secretary,
who were to order a second race between
the two candidates found by the
committee-to have received the largkest
and next largest number of votes
for magistrate of this township.
County Chairman Dominick stated
