the legislative ticket.
Several Surprises.
One of the striking features of the
elections was the vote received by
John H. Wilson. Independent candi.
date for sheriff, who polled 837 votes.
Wilson being a Republican, it was
thought it would injure the chances
of Sweeney, the nominee of the
organization wing of the Republican
party. As a matter of fact, the re
turns show that Wilson received as
many Democratic as he did Republi
can votes.
' The defeat of State Senator Oliver
S. Metzerott in his home county cane
as a surprise. The senator was
particularly active against the anti
organization forces in the recent
primary contest in the Republican
party, and he failed to receive the
full vote of his p-Arty Tuesday. The
other Republican candidates also
were cut right and left by the anti
organization folks.
It is also significant that four of
the Republican candidates who were
supposed to be favorable to the Bowie
racetrack went down to defeat, and
it is thought that the women -if the
county played no little part in this
