request that the committee select some
one of their number to preside. Mfr.
E. D. Hodge was the member selected,
and on assuming the chair he made a
few brief and appropriate remarks,
then announced that the committee

At this juncture R. O. Purdy Esq.,

Mr. S. S. Mitchum was not a regular
member of the committee, but he had
wr-itten authority to act as proxy for
Mr. Davis who wished to be relieved on
account of being a party in interest.
R. 0. Purdy Esq. representing Mr.

(1) There was no poll list and no club roll sent
in to said executive committee as required by
the rules governing said primary elections.

thamt two or more persons under the ace of
twenty-one years were allowed to vote at said
precinct, and he nar.:es as two of them Joseph
Wise and Peter Ridgeway.
(3) The vote as returned by the managers
shows forty-one votes as having been counted
for his opponent. Mr. J. Elbert Davis. and seven
for contestant. whereas at least twelve votes
were cast at said precint for contestant.
II. The -'Harmony" precinct vote should not
be counted. becausc persons' names appear

voted who were not present, but whose votes
we-re cast by proxy.
tiL Contestant protests against the result of
said primarv being declared in favor of his op
pone-nt. J. Elbert Davis. for the reasons herein

no authority to sit as such committee. as there

September 15. 1900.
Mr-. Gamble's protest was read, and
counsel for contestee read the answer
of Mr'. Davis. then Mir. Gamble was
swor'n, and in egfeet said that under a
resolution of committee at a for'mer
meeting he wvas permittedi to examine
club rolls and poll lists. that when he
reached the "White" box there was no
club r'oil and poll list in it. and after
wards Mr. Davi.; told him that he had
the club roll and poll list. He was
pr'esent at the mreeting of committee:
ther tabulated the !trtrs, but not the
votes, Hie mnade no objection or called
attention to therec bing substitutes on
the committee at that meeting. altho'
presen .ost of the time. When the
papers from the White box were dis
coved missing. Mr. Davis asked him if
he was going down that way soon, and
he told him "not that I know of." When
Mr. Davis told me he had the poll list,
it was the Friday after the primary
near Mr. Calvin White's house. Mr.
'White was a manager at the White
When Mr. Gamble finished giving
his testimony, twelve affidavits that had
been taken before J. M. Windham
Probate Judge to the effect that the
atliants were qualified voters, and at
the primary elect ion held on the 11th,
dav 'of Septemher they voted at the
White precinet. and that they voted for
E. B. Gamble for Sheriff. There were
:welve separate affidavits, signed by
T. H1. Timmous, W. G. Strange, Mor
,an Strange, .1. M. Strange, P. E. Lov
der, Daniel Johnson, J. F. White, H.
A. Strange, J. E. Lowder. J. E. Wise,
David Tucker and J. W. Dyson. The
last six names signed with a cross mark,
the others signed their own names.
The contention of Mr. Gamble is, that
at this White precinct the sworn re
turns show that he received only 7 votes
when he should have recieved 12 votes
and. this he undertook to establish by
by six affidavits signed by the voters
themselves, and six who could not, or
did not write their names.
There was also an affidavit presented
which was signed by P. E. Rideway Jr,
before Probate Judge Windham. which
said that "Peter E. Ridgeway Jr., who
was allowed to vote on the 11th, inst,
was born in the month of No'-ember
181, "which according to this atfiant
Peter, would make the voting-Peter
only 19 years of age. In the grounds
for protest there appears the names of
two persons alleged to be minors, Peter
Ridgeway and Joseph Wise, but when
the case come on to be heard, Wise was
not claimed as a minor, but turned up
with his cross mark among those who
voted for Gamble.
W. H. Gailliard was sworn as to votes
cast by proxy in the Harmony box. He
said that he authorized Mr. J. M. Mont
gomery to vote for him. and gave di
rections as to part of tae ticket, the
rest he was indifferent about.
J. M. Montgomery sworn said he was
not a manager and did not cast the vote
for Mr. Gaillard, but thought his
brother did, he voted for Davis for
sheriff. J. E. Kelly sworn, said he was
at Harmony and saw a vote cast for J.
M. Witherspoon by proxy, he only re
mained there about 20 minutes. A. H.
D. Chandler sworn, said J. D. Daniels,
his son-in-law, and A. R. Chandler his
son, were forced to leave before the
polls opened. they prepared their tick
ets, and at their request "I put the
tickets in the box for them," both votes
were for Davis for Sheriff. He saw no
other proxies. At this stage counsel
for Davis admitted there being 5 votes
cast by proxy at Harmony box.
The case of the contestant was rested
The contestee in defence began by
swearing T. Elbert Davis. who said
when it was discovered that club roll
and poll list of the White club was not
in the box I asked Mr. Gamble if he
was going down that way soon. He
said he did not thik so. I went my
self, got the papers from Mr. W. C.
White one of the managers. The poll
list was offered in evidence, and ob
jected to by counsel for Mr. Gamble.
Acting Chairman Hodge submitted
the question to the committee and on
motion of J1. H. Timmons, seconded by
L. Appelt it was decided to admit all
evidence that bore on the primary.

After hearing Messrs Davis and
Rhame for the contestee J. Elbert
Davis, R. 0. Purdy Esq. for contestant
E. B. Gamble. the committee went into
executive session, and there the entire
matter was fully discussed: the whole
case resolved itself down to a thorough
conviction that no intentional fraud
had been perpetrated with regard to
the Harmony box. but that the proxy
votes cast there were illegal and should
not be counted, that the contestant did
not show that he had been defrauded
a- the White box, he had affidavits go
ing to show that twelve men voted for
him when there was only seven credited
to him, but the other side had aflidavits
of men who could read and write, and
did sign their names, who swear they
looked over the reading of the tickets,
and they were read correctly. and
further, one of the men who swore he
voted for Gamble, when he had his
ticket fixed, he remarked loud enough
for others to hear "scratch Gamble's
very eyes out" and Gamble was scratch
When all the members had given the
matter full consideration, the question
came up on the throwing out of the
White box, because the rule requiring
the poll list had not been complied with
by the managers, upon that question
Mr. Appelt moved that the secretary
call the roll and as each member's name
was called he would vote No or Yes.
An amendment was offered to this mo
tion that the vote be taken by a secret
ballot, Mr. Appelt objected to this mode
of procedure and on motion of Dr.
Woods the amendment was tabled by a
vote of 11 to 10, 3 members not voting.
Then the motion for a viva voce vote
was put and carried. Those voting to
throw out the White box were E. J.
Browne. W. C. Chandler, James C.
Harvin, E D Hodge, T A Bradham, C
R Felder, J H Johnson and C M Mason.
Those voting against throwing out
the White box were; Louis Appelt,
E S McIntosh, J M Montgomery, S W

ville. G T Worsham, B R Gibson, J R
Griffin, D F Lide, J C Lanham, A J
Richbourg, C M Davis, J J Mitchum,
J H Timmons and C J Haley-16 to 8.
This virtually settled the contest, but a
motion was made to throw out the Har
mony box which failed, and by unani.
consent the five proxy votes cast in the
Harmony box were deducted from Mr.
Davis, which makes his majority 22
instead of 27 as formerly declared.
After making the declaration in the
shape of the following resolution the
