Tboman, d 61 76 I 6-j - 1 - 1 Election day was an ideal one, the most beautiful of the year —at least that is what all the Republicans think and the others don’t count just now. The sky was clear and the weather balmy and everybody felt good and worked hard. Out of a registration of about 2200. only a little over 1500 votes were cast. As tho majority of those voted right the Register is not going to kick about the light vote. There was very little excitement daring the day, everything passed off quietly, and good feeling prevailing. Even at night when the returns were corn ing in there was no boisterouaness or trouble. The credit for the groat victory is duo to tbo character and litness of : the Republican candidates, and tho earnest and faithful work of Chair man Rent, and the coininitteonien and workers under him It would take more space than wo can sparo ! to mention the names of all who did splendid work for the ticket, so wo will congratulate all of them. There has nover been a time in this county when tho republicans stood up shoulder to shoulder and worked so earnestly for the whole ticket. Credit is due all along the line. The only thing that happened in the least to mar tho general good feeling of the day was tho scurrilous and petty scandal which certain par ties wore peddling around. As far as tho home candidates woro concern ed they were so well and favorably 1 known that these tales reacted with I telling effect on the authors and 1 earned them the contempt of all. In tho case of candidates living in other sections and not well known hero, it may have had some effect, l)Ut the general result should bring tho blush of shame to the cheeks of the parties who spread them. Tbo wagging tongues were particularly active with vile gossip about Will McPherson, the popular candidate for commissioner. If any voters were for a moment misled by these statements, we would refer them to tho vote of Holly precinct, his home where his character is best known A man who can got the votes of 191 out of 213 of those who are well ac quainted with him, and for the office which is considered tho most import ant both politically and in a business sense, can certainly stand on that KEEP TOOTING!

His neighbors made a more emphatic answer than it wonld be possible for the Register to make. While on the face of the leturns as made up to date, Geo H. Thomas, republican candidate for sheriff, is defeated by ono vote, yet it is fact that ho made the greatest race of all when all things are taken into con sideration. A comparative stranger ho accepted a nomination against one of the best known and most popular men in the county, one who was al ready holding the position and who was practically conceded by every body would be re-elected. Mr. Thomas made an earnest and effec tive canvass and gained steadily as tho campaign progressed. Ho made friends wherever ho went, and the short time between convention day and election prevented him from mooting all the voters and is the only \ reason he has not a substantial ma jority to his credit. We publish above the table of the votes as compiled to date, and will give tho official table next week. ELECTION NOTES. McPherson has double tho highest majority over given a commissioner iu this county. Red hair and limbergor cheese will be quite popular now among those politically inclined. When Brother Frybarger and Law loss get together something is going to drop —and it did. The “paid reporter” says he got large chunks of pay Tuesday night reading the election returns. It was certainly prophetic fore sight which caused the Sparks to come out in mourning last week. Precincts No. 1 and 5 are the only ones still democratic and even they failed to make a clean sweep of it. Reynolds, Markham and Lee each carried every precinct in the county, and Curry and Blodgett all but one. The clean and fair campaign by the republican candidates gained them friends from the start to finish. That coarse work of chairman Bent’s that tho Sparks referred to so often must look like tine Italian dip lomacy to the editor npw. The republicans made a clean sweep of the local justice precinct also, electing A. E. Downer, justice, 8 Pages NUMBER 21 and H. B. Manville, constable. The returns from tho two north aide precincts show that onr farmer* believe in clean political methods and don’t care to listen to personal abuse. The two “Honeys” had a hard fight but both landed safe with a good margin. Tbo combination of i auburn locks and a rosy name can’t , be beat. Precincts No. 4, 8, and 9 returned republican majorities for the outire tickot. While No. 0, usually demo cratic, tied on sheriff and gave the rest republican. The republican workers of No. 7 made a grand showing also. It ban always boon a democratic stronghold, but gave most of the republican can didates good majorities. Precinct No. 4 kept its place as the largest precinct in the county although a large slice of its city tor ritory had been cut off since the last [election. Its vote was 235. Billy Reynolds broke all records, ilis majority of 020 is 250 above the record and will be tho high mark for some time. Ue is also the first can didate with opposition to receive more than 1000 votes. The crowd at republican head quarters felt so good when tho re turns were all iu, that they raised a liberal purse to reward Tommy C’olo bourn for his faithful work iu getting the election returns over the tele phone. Wo have never hail such satisfactory work in this line hoforo. The great north side proved thut they appreciate the good faith which republicans have always shown their candidates more than mere represent ation on a ticket which is ail the democrats have ever given them. A few minutes study of tho returns will show that the democrats never gave Mr. Howe an honest support. The greatest surprise was the line showing made by Miss Kxlino. Making practically an independent canvass for the office of superintend ent, she received a vote far greater than anybody expected would be possible for her to receive. Tho re turns showed that she was not so friendless as some people believed.
