OCRATS IN OHIO?THE REIGN OF
The election in this city passed o?I
quietly yesterday and no excitement pre?
vailed. The Democrats were very active
and used every.possible means to get out
their vote. How well they succeeded is
shown by the result. The opposition
had no organization and did nothing to?
wards getting th" apathetic voters t< the
polls. As a result there was a regular
Democratic landslide and Hicks and Ca'ut
well are elected by overwhelming major?
So far as the State ticket is concerned,
the majorities of the Democratic can?
didates exceeded the vote of the opposi?
tion. There wiih a splendid organization
on the part of the Democrats and they
had their best workers on the ground
early and they worked like beavers until
the "polls ^closed. Every votiug place
was liberally supplied with carriages and i
all day long a coustaut stream of voters
wore hauled to and from the places,
where their suffrages were deposited.
There was no rush at any time during
the day of any consequence. The Repub?
lican vote was light and the colored pm
tion of it was exceedingly so. With the
exceplion'of the Third ward there were
hardlv fifty colored voters who went to
The total vote cast, is as follows by
wards: First. 054; Second, 403: Third,
(ilii; fcV>urt\ :io:;; Fifth, 19H. A to^al of
2,564, against 2,288 votes cast in the leg?
islative race two years ugo.
The total vote in the city stood t.ien
us follows: For Senate?Watts, 1,148;
Clay tor, 1,140. Watts' majority, 8.
For house of delegates?Hannah, 1,021;
McCartney, 1,00V, giving the latter a
majority of-ill; Jones, 1,028; Berkeley,
1,318, giving the latter a majority of 290.
In the city Tyler received 1,5211 votes,
white McCau'l rounded up with only GDI),
giving the Democratic ticket a clenr ma?
jority of 833.
Hicks received 1,487 votes and Mc
Clauahan trot 874, giving the former a
majority of 653. Caldwell received 1,290
votes, and Mr. Hartwell [only panned out
818, giving Caldwell a majority of 481.
All of the precincts in the county, with
four exceptions, taken with the city vote,
gives Hicks a majority of 470 to go to
Craig county with. The vote there is es?
timated to raisd this majority at least
250, which will give him a majority in
the district in round numbers of 700.
The four precincts of Roanoko county
unheard from are John's Shop,Edington's
Shop, Brand's Store anil Botetourt
Springs. These precincts two years ago
gave Claytor over Watts a majority of
about 50, but they will in no way alter
the general results.
