Fargo, N. D., Nov. 8.—36G precincts
®ut of 2115 in North Dakdjlf,a give
Frazier 23,133, O'Connor 34^765. 338
precincts give Lemke 15,06^ and Nes
tos 35,290. In the early ithorning is
sues the Courier-News claimed the
victory for Frazier. Wh^n the figure
totaled 55,500 O'Connor was leading
by 12,177, Nestos 20,521. In the pri
maries when 50,500 ha been tabulat
ed McCumber was leading by 3,419,
while Nestos had a plurality of 20,
667.' In 11 precjncts in Fargo the
vote showed an increase of 35 percent
and Frazier made a gain of 45 per
cent. In 47 precincts out of the 59
in Grand Forks county Nestos has a
lead of 2,166. In this county Lemke
gamed 685 votes and O'Connor lost
72. Lemke is everywhere making
considerable gains. Many places
come in with Nestos and Lemke giv
en a good margin. It is possible that
the Grain Grading Law might have
Seen carried thru. For example, the
precincts in Fargo gave O'Connor
130, Frazier 112, and voted yes 160,
and no 30. The Nonpartisan league
headquarters today claiqied the elec
tion of Frazier by at least 25,000 ov
er O'Connor, regardless of the early
morning returns. They also claim in
addition to Frazier, the election of
Richardson, Englert, Milholland and
Harding. They also claimed that
their entire state ticket will be elect
ad. Theodore G. Nelson, Secretary of
the I. V. A., today in a statement to
the United Press gave out as follows:
"We do not think that Frazier will
get within 25,000 of Nestos. There is
no chance of O'Connor being beaten
unless the Nonpartisan party shows
anlooked for strength or the Non
partisan party in the western part of
the state put ballots in 'the boxes
whether the voters went to the polls
ar not. William Lemke refused to
ecwieede defeat, declaring that it is
impossible to beat him. Nonpartisan
headquarters today are satisfied with
the early returns and it is believed
by them that the returns on the
Grain Grading Law show the popu
larity of the league policy with the
people. The law is made to prevent
