STATE NEWS NORTH CAROLINA ELECTION RESULTS. PROGRESSIVE FARMER AND COTTON PLANT. 13 I The Legislature. The North Carolina election last week resulted in a majority of about 45,000 for the Democratic State tick et; and of the ten Congressmen, all are Democrats save E. Spencer Blackburn, the Republican candidate who seems to have been elected in the Eighth District. The Demo cratic majority in the Legislature will be about the same as two years ago. Says the Raleigh News and Ob server: "With but a few counties and Sen atorial districts not yet decided, the composition of the two Houses of the General Assembly of 1905 is known. "There will be but a small change from the vote in the last General Assembly. In the Senate there are forty-three Democrats, five Republi cans, and the Thirty-fourth District in doubt. If it sends Democrats, as it did last session, and this i3 the in dication, there will be forty-five Democrats and five Republicans. In tho House there are ninety-seven Democrats, twenty Republicans, with three counties in doubt, two of these returning Democrats the last session and one a Republican, the counties being Brunswick, Graham and Ma con." IL Chairman Simmons' Claims. Senator Simmons yesterday, talk ing of the result as it would affect the next Legislature, said that with out doubt the Democrats would have the same majority they had two years ago in the Lower House seventy eight there being apparently twenty-one Republicans elected out of 120. "We carried," said he, "nine of the thirteen counties of the Tenth Congressional District McDowell, Rutherford, Buncombe, Haywood, Transylvania, Clay, Macon, Graham and probably Jackson. We lost Polk, but that is the only county the Re publicans have carried that they did not carry two years ago in the Tenth, while we have carried Clay, Macon and McDowell that we did not carry in 1902. We have carried Transyl vania, too, and Yancey, that elected a Democrat by only seven majority two years ago, seems to have given Mr. Byrd a majority of 200 or more. In the Eighth we have lost two Stanly and Caldwell. That is the only change there. In the east we seem to have lost Brunswick. "As to the Senate, up to the Twenty-eighth District, we do not lose a man. They get the Senator from that district, Stokes and Surry. They also get the Twenty-ninth, Yad kin, Davie and Wilkes. We get the Thirtieth, Thirty-first, Thirty-second, and Thirty-third. I think they have elected the two Senators from the Thirty-fourth Alexander. Caldwell, Burke and McDowell although we may have one of . the two. They have carried the Thirty-fifth Alle ghany, Ashe and Watauga, and also the Thirty-sixth, Madison, Mitchell and Yancey. We carry the Thirty- seventh and Thirty-eighth. The Thirty-ninth is very close. They car ried it before by about 225. I think we have it. That is composed of Macon, Clay, Graham and Cherokee. "The Republicans certainly have not over seven Senators at best, and I don't think they have over five. Last time they had six." Raleigh Post. HI. Chairman Rollins' Statement. "We have made heavy gains in ev ery county in North Carolina, and we have every reason to feel gratified," said Chairman Rollins of the Repub lican State Executive Committee in reply to inquiry by a Charlotte Ob server reporter last week. 'Tour years ago Aycock carried the State by 60,354 majority, two years ago Beddingfield carried the State by 67, 631 majority, while in this election we reduced the majority to about 35,000. In other words, we succeed ed in cutting down the Democratic vote over 32,600, while the Republi cans have increased their vote from 68,209 two years ago to about 90, 000 in this election. Two years hence we propose to carry North Carolina, and we are going to begin organizing now for that purpose." "How many members have you elected to the General Assembly?" "We have elected thirty members, which is an increase of nine over two years ago, and there are fifteen other counties that are Democratic by less than 300 majority which should have gone Republican. Yes, Judge Ewart is defeated by 1,000 majority. We made a strong, aggressive fight in this district, but the odds were too much against us. I have just re ceived a telegram stating that Mr. Blackburn has been elected to Con gress from the Eighth District by over 1,000 majority. He made an un precedented fight and won a splendid victory." "How many negroes voted in this election!" "Very few; in fact, the colored people took but tlittle interest in the campaign, and I don't think 1,000 voted in the State, and of those that did vote more than one-half of them voted the Democratic ticket." IV. Officers Elected and Other Notes. The Democratic State ticket elect ed Tuesday is as follows: Governor Robert B. Glenn. Lieutenant-Governor Francis D. Winston. Secretary of State J. Bryan Grimes. Auditor B. F. Dixon. Treasurer B. R. Lacy. Attorney-General Robt. D. Gilmer. Superintendent Public Instruction J. Y. Joyner. Commissioner of Labor and Print ing H. B. Varner. Corporation Commissioner S, L. Rogers. Associate Justices Supreme Court W. A. Hoke and Geo. H. Brown, Jr. Judge Superior Court First Dis trict Geo. W. Ward. Following the the new Congressmen-elect : First District John H. Small. Second District Claude Kitchin. Thir District Charles R. Thomas. Fourth District Edward W. Pou. Fifth District W. W. Kitchin. Sixth District Gibert B. Patter son. Seventh Robert N. Page. Eighth District E, S. Blackburn. Ninth District E. Y. Webb. Tenth District J. M. Gudger, Jr. The surprise of the campaign wa3 a Republican majority of 75 to 100 in Stanly. For years and years that county has been reliably Democratic by 500 to 600. The Tenth Congressional District, the only one except the Eighth in which there was any doubt, appears to have given Gudger, Democrat, 1, 000 majority or more. The Democratic majority in New Hanover is about 1,200. In Bruns wick the Democrats were split over the Watts law, but all the nominees were elected, except Curtis for the House, who was defeated by Taylor, Republican, and McKeithan, Demo crat, for treasurer, who was defeated by Stanfield, Republican. A man named Newman, at Mills Springs, Polk County, Tuesday af ternoon, shot and killed his brother in-law, named Holbert, as the result of a drunken quarrel. Newman and Holbert quarreled, whereupon New man left his companion, and, going to his home, got a shotgun. Governor Aycock ha3 appointed Jas. J. Webb, of Clevland County, Judge of the Twelfth District to sue ceed Judge W. A. Hoke, who resign ed on account of his nomination and election to the Supreme Court bench, and he appoints Mr. Heriot Clark- son, of Charlotte, solicitor, to fill the vacancy made by the appoint ment of Mr. Webb as judge.
