They found the job too great for them <to complete without rest and adjourned late on Wednesday for sleep, the ballots being guarded by watchers appoint ed by the three county chairmen. They are still counting, all other precincts now being in. The best of good feeling prevail od during the day and there was no disturbance or friction what ever.

All three precincts remain dry by substantial majorities.
