A contest in the 13 precincts of
Pendleton almost a closo as tho
county contest for the senatorial plu
rality, was staged between B. I. Kea-
tor and S. A. Newberry, candidates
for district attorney. Speculation has
been rife as to the outcome of the
vote In this city on district attorney
and an official canvas of the ballots
shows Mr. Keator to have ca-rrled
Pendleton by i? votes.
Mr. Newberry, democratic nominee,
took six and Mr. Keator, incumbent
and republican nominee, took the
other seven local precincts. Mr. Kea
tor had 1194 votes when they were
all counted and Mr. Newberry 1128.
A reversal in precinct 4 3 would have
changed the result.
The successful candidate carried
precincts 84, 35, 86, 37, 40, 43, and
44. Mr. Newberry took the majority
in precincts 32. 33. 3S, 39, 41 and 42.
