Comparatively Small Vote
Cast; Some Surprises
BAKER LOSES HERE
McNary and Sinnott Get Big Vote;
Judge Campbell Win, Easily Over
Bleakman, Nearest Competitor.
Election day passed very quietly In
Heppner and there wa, little to in
dlcate that anything out of the or
dinary wa, transpiring. The vote
waa small, there being lea, than 1000
cast in the county, or a little more
than one-third of the registration
The only local fight wa, for the coun
ty judgeship on the republican ticket,
ana lor mis omce there were three
aspirants W. T. Campbell of Hepp
ner, present incumbent, G. A. Bleak
man of Hardman and M. R. Morgan
of lone, and the pre-election dope
aeemed to favor Bleakman. He car
ried hi, own precinct strong and re
ceived a fairly good support in the
Heppner precinct,, but Judge Camp
bell had the long lead here and thi,
could not be overcome.
In the senatorial and congressional
contest,, It had been predicted quite
freely that McNary and Sinnott
would win though it was thought that
both Baker and Cochran would make
a better race than they did. Baker
however, was never much of fav.
orite here and the result of the count
waa not in the least surprising. Sin

evidently quite a prevalent feeling

county was gratifying but not just

but little chance to win against a
Umatilla county man, and his op

is that other element, also, entering
into this contest Umatilla county
and Pendleton are notoriou, for
atanding by their own man and Mor
row county cannot expect represen
tation except when the big county
lays off and fails to put forward a
candidate. Mr. Barratt also admits
that he waa hurt in the race bv the
editorial work of the I'endieton East

cerning the pet scheme of Ed El

ton) Barratt did not favor this, hence
the ire of Aldrich and his efforts to
place Mr. Barratt in the wrong light
wore me people of I'endieton. Mr.
Barratt has been defeated by some
thing like 965 votes, Shumway re
ceiving 22116 and Barratt 1344 in the
district, but the vote in Umatilla
county waa not quite complete when
these figures were reported, and the
lead of Shumway will be increased
alightly when the full count is in.
Gay M. Anderson received the high
vote for the office of county clerk,
he having no opposition on the re
publican ticket. George McDutTee re
ceived both the republican and dem
ocratic nomination for sheriff, beat
ing Frank Lieuallen 8 vote, on the
latter ticket and unless some man
bobs up as an independent, he will
have a clear field at the election in
November. W. A. Richardson will
oppose Mr. Anderson for clerk.
There has been considerable inter
terest worked up over the office of
school superintendent, the failure of
Mrs. Shurte to announce fully her In
tention permitting others to get into
the running and bringing on a con
test between Mrs. Helen M. Walker
of Hardman and Mrs. Opal Clark of
Heppner, with Mrs. Shurte getting
some support. Had Mrs. Shurte got
ten into the running early and had
her name printed on the ballot it is
very doubtful if anyone ale would
have entered the race against her.
Mrs. Walker was an easy winner for
the republican nomination and was
also Indorsed by a number of demo
crats but could not outrun Mrs. Clark
for this nomination. This race prom
