The election passed off quietly
throughout the county. Workers
were early at the polls and the con
test for the democratic nomination
for Sheriff, Supervisors and Assessor
evoked the most interest, j
Hon. Lamar Cobb, Greenlee coun
ty's candidate for Representative, t
who returned home Monday after
noon, was given a splendid vote in
Greenlee county, receiving a total of
481 democratic votes.. Cobb also led
all other candidates for Representa
tive in Cochise but the strength of
Hayden ;n Maricopa county, which
went almost solid for him, giving
their candidate a majority of more
than a thousand, was too much for
either Cobb or Winsor to overcome
in the remaining counties of the ter
ritory. Proba'.ly the greatest in
terests in Greenlee county was taken
in the contest for Supervisors, Sher
iff and Assessor. B. F. Billingsley,
of Duncan, led the ticket, Campbell
second, Hampton, third and Cromb
fourth.
For Sheriff Inglish received the
nomination over Wester by margin
of eighteen votes.
Foi Assessor James Kerby defeated
James Harvey. Kerby received 388
votes Haryey 279.
Contrary to expectations in some
quarters there is a scarcity of "sore
heads" among the democrats. The
result has been accepted by the de-1
Ashurst.

feated candidates as an expression
of the will of the majority at a fair
election and judging from the ex
pressions heard the Democrats pro
pose to support the ticket nominated
on Tuesday with more enthusiasm
than ever before witnessed iu a poli
tical campaign in Greenlee county.
The Republican party polled a
comparatively small vote in Green
lee county, likewise the Socialists.
The only contest was for Supervisors
where J. L. T. Watters of Duncan
was defeated by a narrow margin.
When the sample ballots .made
their appearance it was discovered
that the blank spaces on che Social
ist ticket, whereby members of that
party could write in the names of
their candidates for county officers,
had been ommitted. It was the de
sire of the Socialists to nominate a
legislative ticket which they did by
writing the names of Doudna, Ghizo
ni and Whitacre on the ballot and
the returns were properly made to
the Supervisors.

REPUBLICAN RATIFICATION
Casino Hall Thursday Night Held a
Large Number of Local Repub
lican Enthusiasts
Shortly after 8 o'clock Thursday
evening Casino hall was comfortably
filled with local republicans and the
meeting was opened by Chairman
Weiss, who stated the object of the
call was in honor of .las. Fisk, repub
lican candidate for state treasurer.
The first speaker was C. C. Daubert
who gave a lucid account of his life's
history and why be was a republican
He spoke clearly on the princioles of
republicanism and while his remarks
were not of a political nature, their
significance could not be miscon
strued. After Mr. Daubert came C.P.Dunn,
county candidate for supervisor. Mr
Dunn took the supervisorship from a
business standpoint and his remarks
were well received. Then came Mr.
Fisk who made a short and terse talk
along the lines of the responsibilty of
the first treasurer of the great state
of Arizona.
Mr. Merritt was .then introduced
and his remarks were greeted with
much applause and enthusiasm. L.
Kearney was then called upon and in
a forcible manner he dwelt ou the
duties of a judge of the superior
court to which office he was nomi
nated by his party. He stated that
he would be untrammeled by the
technicalities of the law, but would
admiuister it according to right and
justice, regardless of all Influences.
Hon. Del M. Potter then broke into
the meeting and in his inimitable
and eloquent manuer made the talk
of the evening. He dwelt upon po-
itics briefly, paid an eulogy to Mr.
Fisk, and then landed a package for
good roads. This question he made
a paramount one for Arizona and
stated his cause in such a clear man
ner that it was apparent that every
good citizen of the new state should
make it his duty to boost first, last
and all the time for good highways.
After the speaking" refreshments
were served in the buffet, where
everyone refreshed and enjoyed
themselves. The enthusiasm ran
high and altogether the meeting was
a grand success.

McAlister Races Ahead of Dial. Lynch
and Jackcobson for Representatives
The primarv election Tuesday,
passed off quietly in Safford andthe
valley. The friends of the democrats
looking for nominations on the demo
cratic ticket were out in full force
and some good, old time electioneer
ing was accomplished, as seen from
the returns.
The republican vote was light, there
being only two contests for nomina
tions. Judge Wells and George V.
(Pardon) Young were in the ring for
the governorship. When time was
called, Young was found to be bleed
ing profusely and winded, and only
saved from a knockout bv the kind
ness of the referee. Youne- got as
many as three votes from his repub
lican brethren, which is probably
their estimate of Pardon Younc.
Philbrook and Jones contested for
the office of superintendent of public
instruction, with the odds In favor
of Jones.
The socialists had no contest. Suf
ficient votes were given for the ticket
to insure its insertion on the ballot
at the general election in December.
