the votes which his friends believe he

Bowie. Grist and Simmons received
68.792 votes, that all of these were de

both Bowje and Grist made a more
bitter personal attack upon Morrison
than did Reynolds, that Reynolds
can thus count on getting the larger
portion of these 88,792 votes. They also
point out that even if just as many
votes are cast in the second primary
as in the first, when 355.187 votes
were cast for those seeking the Sena

to get only 28.000 more votes than the
