DALLAS. Tex, May 5. With unof
ficial returns Wednesday morning
showing complete counts from
democratic conventions in 1SS of the
2: o counties in Texas, delegates fa-
onng endorsement of the national
administration were assured of con
trol of the state Democratic conven
tion May 25.
The returns from the county con
ventions which met to name delegates
to the state convention, gave the ad
nlnistration forces 147 counties, with
a conTectlon voting strength of 10&4
and the Democratic forces opposed to
T.dorsement of the Wilson admin
istration eight counties with a com-
tned vote of 38. Three counties, with
1:7 votes, selected unlnstructed dele
gates. County convention returns from 10
counties showed Bailey to have car
ried ten and a half counties and two
counties to be doubtful. If Bailey
carried these two counties, his total
' ote will be 6.
The total convention vote is 1400.
