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 nott haa always run well and it was evidently quite a prevalent feeling mat tms was no time to make a change The vote for Mr, Barratt In thi, county was gratifying but not just what it should have been. He atood but little chance to win against a Umatilla county man, and his op ponent, Mr. Shumway, is a man that haa a good atanding in the other county where the big vote i. There 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 Oregonian because of bit action con cerning the pet scheme of Ed El drich to have the state highway com mission build a $2,000,0u0 road out Into the mountains south of Pendle 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 ise, 10 De an Interesting one at th fall election. Of course Presdent Coolidgo receiv ed a strong endorsement from the republicans and Mr. McAdoo was the favorite of the democrats. In some precincts Mr. Johnson had pretty fair support put Ms vote in the county wa, light.

The contest in the democratic pri maries in Morrow county was not exciting. There was a close vote on the senatorial ticket between Miller rttid Strayer, but Mansfield led the field in this county, and this race seemed to be the one creating the most Interest here. The county tick et contnined but few candidntes and there was no competition for the offices sought. In the race for sher iff, the name of Frank Lieunllen had to be written in, and for this office McDuffee, on the republican ticket. also received the democratic nomina tlon. It was shown that in a great many instances, those writing in the name of Mr. Lieunllen failed to place a cross before the name, hence the ballot could not be counted. Mrs. walker also received a goodtv num ber of votes on the democratic ticket for school superintendent, hut Mrs Clark won out and she will oppose ;nr. waiaor In the fall elections.

LOCAL MS HEMS Johnny McMillan, who has followed farming for many years at Lexington, wa, exhibiting samples of wheat from his place while in Heppner vester. day, and we are frank to admit that according to the sample he will not nave a yield that will exceed six or even bushels to the acre. Mr. McMil an figures that he will not bother cutting the greater portion of his crop unless something should happen to maae It better, and this does not seem possible. There was a lack of moisture ever since the first of March and the crop simply could not mature under those conditions. ' The marriage of Miss.

Heppner Drops Another Game to Condon, 10-3 Roberta Pitehe Good Ball But Lack, Support; Pes, Brown Get, UansJ Homer. Condon's ability to get hit, when most needed coupled with Heppner's loose fielding spelled Heppner's on- doing in Sunday's game on the Wheat City diamond. The score was 10-3. Pem Brown, veteran left fielder, sock ed the ball out of the lot for his us ual homer, with two men on bases in the eighth, and Charlie Fitzmaurice n an endeavor to duplicate the stunt followed with a three-bag bingle. r red Roberta pitched his usual good game for the locals, but the 14 errors pulled by his support allowed the opponents to get way for a hi lead.
