THE UPPER DEH MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, NOV. 5, 1801. IT'S HAPPENED AGAIN Only a Portion of the Republica •* f 'County Ticket Succeeds in Puliifig Through. But Your Uncle John Smith wil Hold Down a Seat in the Lower Sheriff Stephens Goes Down in the Wreck-^Graham Has It . by 104 MajoHty. Refed (Rep.) for Superintenden Defeats Bertha Carey by a Majority of 126. Lantry (Dem.) for Treasurer i Re-elected with 449 Votes to Spare. JL Two Republican Supervisors, anc Coroner and Surveyor Complete the Sum Total. •It Was the Hottest and in Some Respects the Bitterest Fight Ever Known Here. Algona was crowded yesterday with an'anxious gathering from all parts of t he ceunty, ali'interested in the resul of the election, local and state; and as nonreturn's were available that were satisfactory THE UPPER DBS MOINES V •;.-' I ••:••" i .:• • decided to reach the early mails witl what was to be had and issue an extra this morning giving the- full unofficia' vote. The table below gives the cor rected returns as they will appear unti the .board meets, and the .state repor affords a close estimate of the final re suit. THE COUNTY VOTE. It is a Badly Mixed Affair, but Results Are Already Known. Locally the result is a little mixed and afforded mixed feelings of satisfac tion and mourning yesterday to al sides. Senator Funk's vote went down with - the rest but he got 124 'majority, aboul • a third of what Kossuth ought to have rolled up for him. Mr. Smith was more lucky coming out, thanks to Garfield township, with 226. H. : H; Bush in a letter to him last night said Hancock had given him 182 with one town to hear from,and this easily elects him. The outcome on the state ticket was a big surprise to all. When a few townships showed 'big republican gains a . majority of-400 was confidentially anticipated. But the returns from the newly settled townships showed how the county has grown in people and in democrats. The vote is by far the largest in the history, of the county, and,'the'additions are largely democratic. The total is 2,992, of which Wheeler had 1,538, Boies 1,418, and WestfailSO. This cut Wheeler's vote over. Boies to 120, and over all to 84, This,makes Kossuth a close county if it is a fair party vote, and the new settlement next year will make us nearly democratic if not quite. The big majority on the county |fri9j:et goes to Mr. Lantry, who has now made,the'two premium runs in county history: .Two years ago he had 756, •and this year on a much closer contest he gets 499. His vote is scattered over the county, showing that it was purely a personal compliment and a recognition ,6f, : his 1 excellent services in the treasurer's office, and not the result of any-political combination, The fight on Sheriff Stephens was successful and he went down under a majority: of 104 for Graham. There are features in this contest which have caused ds much regret as anything in the whole contest, but when results are known it is useless to quarrel with them. Mr, Stephens had a hearty support and but for a bitter personal fight on 'him he would have won easily. The returns on the superintendent's canvass were as surprising as any, both candidates gaining and losing without any seeming reason. Miss Carey made a plucky contest and had able assistants, but Mr. Reed gained heavily in many sections and came out 121 ahead. The remainder of the republican ticket was elected, J. O. Rawson by J29 and H. C. Hollenbeck by 128 for su- pervisors, Dr. Sheetz by -^ lor coroner, ftnd C. A. Tellier by — for surveyor. Altogether it is a mixed result, and with many singular features. Notes on the X,OCal Contest. The county has 28 voting places. Bertha Carey rail well in Algona. Rlverd&ie gave' 49 democratic major- Algona cast 508 votes this year. Th is means over 2,500 people. Prairie's awful 80 to 90 majority right through was a deadener. Springfield may be said tp be for Reed. '|Ie got every Vote cast. A-lgona gave more than the whole republican majority of the county. ' Will some one please tell us What kind of a bird the " Gallihoo'' is? The people's party did not support Gov. Boies. Westfallhad 36 votes. Greenwpod gave 21 republican majority and gav'e Grahapi 62. That is pretty fair for a home endorsement. We must trust to Asa and -Ben. to represent republicanism at .the court house next year.' They will be'alone. How about Lu Verne tratlingoff Reed? It gave him seven and Stephens ten more than the party vote. Lu Verne did her duty. Stephens was cut worst in Burt and Plum Creek. He was 35 behind in one and 42 in the other. No reason is given for this remarkable republican outbreak. Our table this morning shows the corrected county returns as they are at the auditor's office. The totals are not given, but the majorities are as figured yesterday by several experts. They GOV, BOIES GOT THERE His Re-election by a Small Plu rality is Conceded by the Republicans. Chairman Mack Says the Bal ance of the State Ticket is Possibly Republican. The Iowa House Will be Reptib Ijcan, While the Senate will be Democratic. Reports from Other States Say It Was a Drawn Battle— Miscellany. The LnBt Word About Town. The following message wns received at 8:25 this morning. It settles the questipn as to/the state: DES MOINES, Nov. 4.—THE UPPER DBS MOINES: Democrats elect Gov. Boies by small plurality, balance of the ticket in doubt. House safely republican; senate doubtful, probably democratic. EDGAR E. MACK. The Petor A.Dey Posters. Several of the railroad men's posters for Peter A. Doy were voted in Algona, but how many will not be known till the ballots are officially counted. It is likely though, that enough were used oyer the state to defeat Campbell if ho stood a chance otherwise. The rail- OOretll-.lClM000013til>frHOa 3M CI-.1CJMO SMHlOMWCSMOOOtll'tD-1 I Wheeler (rep).

Mr. Jhipman was well liked, but the sentiment seemed to prevail everywhere to ive two terms to his opponent. The Courier said some about spotting he traitors.

The republicans, however, elect their entire state ticket with the exception pf governor by ample pluralities. Incomplete returns oh the legislature indicate seventeen republican senators elected.
