RACE FOR SHERIFF TIUtlLLIXG
Result Hinges on Reedsport Vote

ROSEBURG, Or., May 24 (Special.)
The race for nomination on the re
publican ticket for the position of
sheriff between the incumbent.
George Quine. and his opponent, Sam
Starmer is one of the most thrilling
and unique in the history of Douglas
With a few rural precincts missing,
the race hinges upon the returns from
Reedsport, where over 500 votes were
cast. The wires to that place went
out before the returns were an
nounced, and at a late hour tonight
nothing had been heard from there
in the event the first report that
Sheriff Quine has a lead of 75 votes
is proven correct on final returns,
then he is practically assured of the
nomination. On the other hand, if his
lead is less than that number, Star
mer will be nominated. The race de
pends entirely upon the Reedsport
vote and the outcome will probably
not be determined until the final can
vass is complete.

from Jackson and Douglas counties is
practically conceded to C. F. Hopkins
of this city, who from unofficial re
turns has defeated W. H. Gore of

Late returns make practically no
change in the relative standings of
other candidates for presidential and
state positions, the communities out

The most delighted men In the state
are the democrats who sided with
Senator Chamberlain in his fight for
renomlnation against Harvey G.
Starkweather, the Wilson candidate.
"Mr. Starkweather." observed Dr.
J. W. Morrow, national committee
man, "announced that the fight was
to get the rats out of the democratic
party. Well, the primary appears to
have been rough on rats."
The anti-Chamberlain forces went
down to defeat where they made their
strongest play, with Starkweather
and Mrs. Thompson. This faction has
some consolation, however, in seeing
Colonel Robert Miller elected as presi
dential elector and in Mrs. Richards
being elected as a delegate to the

The democratic delegation at San

than the republicans at Chicago with
Mr. McCamant playing a lone hand.

appeal to the German-speaking voters
to vote for Peterson and oppose Hurl

toward German-Americans in the war
simply had the effect of swelling

COVE'S VOTE IS EXPLAINED
Several Drives Going on and Tax
Levy Felt Severely
COVE, Or.," May 24. (Special.)
Two reasons are advanced in explana
tion of Cove's vote against the educa
tional bills and against the increased
levy for good roads. The taxes were
doubled for 1919 and the people have
felt the levy severely. Also, the
ter-church. Salvation Army and
American Legion drives were on at
the same time as the election, and
there was thus created a general
feeling that the demand for money
was being rather overdone.
The measure regulating the succes
sor to the governorship was carried
here by 5 and the blind school bill
by 34. The vote was light, the high
est number of ballots cast being 108
