NINTH CLAIMED
FOR DEMOCRATS.
Election of Slemp not Conceded.
Bristol, Tenn., Nov. 6.- The
following statement was given
out from Congressman Rhea's
headquai cers this evening.
“Later official returns cut
down the :~t:mated majority
claimed for Slemp, and his
claim of certain election is not
substantiated by official re
turns.
“We have never conceded
Rhea’s defeat, but claim that
that he is elected by a small
majority.
“1 he republicans state on
reliable information that the
clerks of several counties fav
or them, and that they heve
held up the returns in some
counties and they will make
the majorities large enough to
elect Slemp.
“The democrats are confi
dent and rely upon official re
ports only.
Chairman Lincsey, of the
Republican Executive Com
mittee, has issued a counter
statement denying tb*t Rhea
lias been elected and insisting
that the democrats are endeav
oring to perpetrate a steal.
Roanoke, Va., Nov. 6.-—
A special from Wythevifie to
night says:
Commissioners of election
completed the canvass of elec
tion returns in this county late
this afternoon throwing out two
precincts, Patterson, which
gave Slemp, republican, one
hundred and nine majority,
and Austin villc which gave
Rhea, democrat, 33 majority.
Patterson precinct was thrown
out because the returns were
not sealed; were sent through
the mails and received a day
late; Anstinville, because the
returns were a day late. This
gives the county officially to
Judge Rhea by twenty six,
where the semi-official returns
gave it to Col. Slemp by 50.
The reports in Wytheville
late this evening from other
sections of the Ninth district
indicate Rhea’s election by a
small majority. A telephone
message from Rhea confirms
this, and places his majority at
twenty-five.
YVptheville, Va.. November
6.—There is a great deal of
excitement among the parties
tonight in this end of the ninth
district over the turn that mat
ters political have taken today
It transpires that Judge Rhea
will be given the certificate of
election on a majority on the
face of the returns of twenty
five.
There is a change in Wythe
county returns ot seventy-six
"otes caused by the throwing
out of two precincts—Patter
son, a heavy republican pre
cinct, because th- poll books
! ind retu '» were mailed to the
jderk instead of being taken to
. him in the manner prescribed
! by law, and Austinville, a dem
! ocratic precinct, because the
| poll book® were sent in un
. .v Ujd, l atterson had given
SIcmp a majority of 119, while
Austinville had given Rhea33
majority. On the returns as
sent in. Slemp had a majority
in the county of 50, but under
the returns as certified to the
Secretary of the Common
wealth by the Election Com
missioners, Rhea will have a
majority in the county of 26.
There are similar changes in
other counties due to irregu
larities.
Pulaski, Va., Nov. 6.—Of
ficial count today gives Slemp,
republican, Pulaski county by
one majority.
