RESULTS IN STATE CON TESTS. With the official vote from 72 counties and the complete but unofficial returns of the remain ing three counties in, Kirby leads Clarke this morning by j 184 votes with 135,688 account-; ed for. But if the vote from Poinsett county is certified to the : State Central Committee, as the chairirtan of Poinsett county j De upcratic convention says it will be certified, Clarke has a lead this morning of 392. The Gazette’s correspondent at Har- j risburg gave the official vote as canvassed by the County Cen-! tral Committee of Poinsett coun- i ty as Clarke 1,286 and Kirby i 615. This morning former Sen- j ator Clyde Going, who acted as : chairman of the Poinsett county Democratic convention yester day, telephoned the Gazette that the official figures on Poinsett county were Clarke 1,621, Kirby , 450. The rrtatter was then tak en up again with the Gazette’s correspondent, who stated that his figures were taken from to- \ tals made by the County Central j Commitee and certified by the i r committee to the convention as official. Going was insistent in his claim that the vote would be cer tified to the State Central Com mittee as he gave it, but it'is given in the Gazette’s table as sent in by the Gazette’s corres pondent. UNOFFICIAL VOTE WILL j STAND. Of the counties given as com plete, but not official, in the Ga zette’s table this morning, it is not thought there will be a j change of 50 votes. It is believed ! the Baxter county figures are of ficial. It is claimed by the Clarke ! headquarters that Cleveland and Lincoln will on the official vote show a few in Clarke’s favor ov er the unofficial figures carried in the Gazette’s table this morn ing. On the official returns Perry county switches from Kirby to Clarke. Until the vote was can vassed in Perry county yester day the figures were, with some townships missing: Clarkq 450; Kirby, 462. The official figures are: Clarke 677 and Kirby 642. BIG CONTEST YET TO COME. urban thp official figures are in then will come the contest, as it seems certain that the loser, on the face of the returns, will con test the election, although the contest talk does come from the candidates, b comes from politicians who are partisans of one or the other of the candi dates.
