Contests in Primary Election

county over Curry, the second man in
the race outside of the county, is about
14,000; while his plurality over Stanton,
the second contestant in the county,
is 8309./ • ,
A J. Wallace, league candidate for
lieutenant governor, is nominated over
Keesling by 13,000 votes. So on through
out the list, with five exceptions, the
Lincoln-Roosevelt ticket scored a re
markable . triumph, completely rele
gating the machine candidates.
LEAGUE LOSES FIVE PLACES
The league has lost five and possibly
six Important nominations, however,
four of which cannot possibly be saved
by the returns yet to come, but two
of ' which may, if the vote has been
heavy in the unreported precincts, go
to the league candidates.
J. D. Fredericks, the machine Repub
lican and mainstay of the Southern Pa
cific political "push," has received the
Republican nomination for re-election
by more than 3000 votes.
The real battle of the campaign, how
ever, is now to be fought out between
the good government non-partisan
forces, who will back the Democratic
—Thomas Lee .Woolwtne—for
the general election against the in
cumbent, nominated by the machine.
Sheriff Hummel, regular Republican,
also has received the nomination, as
stated in The Herald yesterday morn
ing. He leads De La-Monte, the league
candidate, by more than 7000.
The Incomplete returns give the
nomination to the machine incumbent,
Dow, by a margin of more than 1000.
The Lincoln-Roosevelt league, how
ever, will not concede Lewis' defeat
until all the returns have been re
ceived, which should be some time to-
County Tax Colloetor Welch has tri
umphed over the league candidate,
Bwartwnut. as announced yesterday.
Welch leads Johnson two to one, and
Is 4000 -votes ahead of Swartwout.
The Llncftln-Roosevelt loague last
night practically conceded the election
of Bryson, machine candidate for pub
lic administrator, although he hap a
small lead, and I'orton, the league can
didate, has many friends In some of
the more important precincts yet to'
be heard from. At midnight last night
the returns gave Bryson 15,720 and
Lyons, the machine candidate for the
assembly in the Seventy-third district,
has also been nominated but by a nar
row margin. The incumbent, the no
torious •'Jake" Transue, ran a poor
third and Sanders came second within
CATTETX WINS FOR ASBKMBI.Y
Cattell has been renominated In the
Sixty-seventh assembly district by a
Cogswell, of course, was nominated
in the Sixty-eighth, because he ran
Hinshaw, the league candidate, leads
in the Sixty-ninth by 700.
Butler is nominated In the Seventieth
Farwell, the league candidate, and
Brodeen, the machine candidate, had a
close race, neck and neck during the
compilation of returns all day yester
day, but the finals put Farwell in the
lead with 1066 votes against Brodeen's
1021. Plttner received only 224 votes.
Benedict Is nominated In the Seventy
second by more than 800.
Lyons the machine candidate, as
stated, wins in the Seventy-third by
about 300. ,
Randall is nominated by about 200 in
Dr. Lamb wins In the Seventy-fifth
by an extremely narrow margin—less
than twelve votes.
In fact, the league has nominated
every ussembly candidate excepting
Lyons. But, the league members say,
this is because the good government
energies were directed to defeat Tran
sue, and Lyons, while a machine man,
is regarded as preferable to Transue,
but had the same flght ben made on
Lyons that was, made on Transue the
league candidate, Saunders, would
have received the nomination.
Hewitt received the Republican nomi
nation over McCartney and Sanders
for the state senate in the Thirty
eighth district. The league regards
this victory as one of the most im
portant of all. Hewitt's vote is 1850
against 1032 received by McCartney,
the machine candidate, and 389 re
ceived by Sanders, the regular.
COMPLETE BOUT OF KLDIUDGE
"Tvs" Kldrldge Is completely
swamped In the third supervisorial
district, the Lincoln-Roosevelt league
candidate, Butler, wresting the Repub
lican nomination from him by almost
two to one.
The race for coroner has been the
closest antf the most difficult to deter
mine of all the Republican contests.
Dr Gibbons, the league candidate, at
midnight last night having 14860 votes
and Hartwell, the incumbent, 14838.
Not until the last county precinct has
reported will the outcome of this con
test be definitely decided.
The Democratic county central com
mittee also reported yesterday that it
had won the only two contests Involved
in the Democratic primaries by a re
markable majority, Enoch Hidden hav
fhg been defeated by almost two to
one, and "Muggins" McDonald passing
Into political oblivion. As an example
of Hidden's showing In the third
supervisorial district, he received but
174 votes in 34 out of 42 precincts,
while these same precincts, which gave
the bulk of the vote, nominated Mans
neld by 272. McDonald was defeated
In his home precinct by almost two to
one and in the majority of the pre
cincts in the thirty-eighth senatorial
district, where he made his race, was
defeated by a vote of three to one, In
some precincts running as high as four
and one-half to one.
Gavin Craig. It will be seen, ran con
siderably ahead of the judiciary ticket,
and surprised his most Intimate friends.
Judge Melvin received only about one
half of the votes received by Craig.
With the exceptions stated, the en
tire Ltncoln-RooHevelt ticket was nom
inated and the pluralities given by the
382 precincts out of the total 400 will
be seen to run about as predicted yes

The nomination of Henry L.yon in
the seventy-third assembly district, it
was stated last night by prominent of
ficials of the Lincoln-Roosevelt league,
will cause the Democrats and Repub
licans to unite in helping to defeat
him at the general election, and the
pood government forces will be urged
to get back of Mayham, the Democra
tic nominee. The same will be done
In the event that Calvin Hartwell
should be renomlnated for coroner, as
the Lincoln-Roosevelt league Republi
cans say they will no longer tolerate
the present methods employed by Hart
well in giving the bulk of the Coroner's
business to an undertaking firm in
which Walter Parker and other ma
chine men are ( prominent stockhold
In this event the good government
forces will get back of Dr. A. U. Pratt,
the Democratic nominee, and also sup
port other good government Demo
cratic nominees against successful ma
chine Republican candidates, such as
Fredericks, Welch and Dow. The suc
cess of these men has stimulated the
popular demand for the "third ticket,"
which the good government organiza
tion agreed to put up at the general
election In the event that any unde
sirables were nominated. The members
of the Lincoln-Roosevelt league have
agreed to stand by and sutp^rt this
third ticket, and so have the Demo
crats, to whose advantage It will be,
of course, to co-operate with the Re
publicans. This action practically as
sured, it seems certain that the com
bined strength of the reform Repub
licans and Democrats, voting together
for oflb- ticket and working harmonious
ly for Its election, will effectually rout
the undesirable Republicans who have
managed to get the nomination through
the pernicious activities of their court
house machine. It is safe to predict,
therefore, that while Fredericks,
Welch, Lyon and Dow are nominated,
they will never be elected.

q Certain modifications of designs naturally have

shown at the "California" today.
