Prohibition Carries County By Two to
One Every Proclnct Dry But
Tlio ejection lnet Monday wns n land
slide for Frank ISIkins, candidate for re
election for Hhcriff, and for II. 0. KUia
of IJund, in a lesser degree, in the four
cornered liglit for the county judgeship.
These are the two oflicea over which the
bitterest fight was waged, and the re
sult of the election when it became
known Tuesday was an agreeable sur
prise, even to their most sanguine
friends and supporters. Another great
surprise was the overwhelming majority
for prohibition throughout the county,
every precinct except Summit Prairie
voting dry,' and the county carrying for
prohibition by better than u two-to-one
vote. In this precinct it was conceded
that prohibition would carry, but the
two-to-ono vote was a surprise to even
the most radical advocates of "drouth"
at this place.
In spite of tho spirited contest over
several of the county offices and over
the local option question, election day
was an unutally quiet and orderly one
hero. A big vote turned out, two hun1
dred ballots being cast, with a total reg
istration of only two hundred and five,
and that was the only indication there
was of the local interest felt in the issues
at stake. In the initiative and referen
dum incisures very little interest was
nittnifuwted, t he great majority of the
voters confomi'.ug themselves "at eea" as
to the merits or demerits of most of tho
various measures, ami fully a third ot
them not voting at all upon tho ques
tions submitted. On account of these
various initiative and referendum meas
ures, the ballot voted wa3 the longest
one ever voteu m an election in tnc
county, and it whs nearljnoon Tuesday
when the judges and clorks of election
in this precinct completed their work of
counting the L'OO ballots cast.
Election returns fiom other precincts
in the county began coining in by ten
o'clock Tuesday morning, and it was j
early apparent that Klkins had been j
ro-ulceted sheriff, and that II. C.Ellis j
would be the next county judge.
sheriff's rac lias usunlly boon a close
one in this county, three sheriffs having
been elected by a majority of only three
votes, and Mr. Elldns' iiajority last
year being only seven votes. The larg
est majority heretofore secured by a
candidate for sheriff was that of about
150 secured by Mr. Congleton eight
years ago, and Mr. Elkins' majority of
028 in the present election is an em
phatic endorsement of his lecord as
sheriff for the past two years.
The county officers elected, and the
majorities or pluralities by which they
were elected, are as follows:
II. C. Ellis, county judge, D73 plural
Frank Elkins, sheriff, 023 plurality.
Warron IJrown, clerk, 1882 majority;
(no opponent except socialist candidate).
W. F. King, treasurer, 05 plurality.
J,D. Lafolletle, assessor, 280 plurality.
U. A. Ford, 'school supt., 151 majority.
F. A. Hice', surveyor, 525 plurality.
James lticc, commissioner, 084 major
ity; (no opponent except socialist). ,
J. A. McCall, coroner.

NARROW ESCAPE FROM FIRE
Frank Loveland's home had a narroA
escape from destruction by fire last Mon
day, and but for the prompt action of A.
C. Sanford the house and contents wouli
have gone up in smoke. The gaso!mf
cook-stove caught fire, and in a moment
was a mass of flames reaching to the ced
ing and catching fire to the wall paper
Mr Sanford, who happened in at trtju
moment, caught the stove and threw it
out into the yard, and the blaie in the
room was soon extinguished. A small
air hole in the reservoir, permitting the gas
to escape and an accumulation of which
caught fire when the stove was lighted,
communicated the fire to the reservoir,
and was the cause of the trouble.
Ed Harbin of Prineville, was in,tqwn
