RUTHERFORD
COUNTY GOES
DEMOCRATIC
j Democrats Elect All County
Officers Except Recorder
By Small Majority
Following a hectic and bitterly
fought county and state campaign
Rutherford county elected a Demo
cratic county ticket by a small ma
jority. The final outcome of the
county ticket was in doubt until the
last precinct reported Wednesday
noon.
Reports wefre received at the
Rutherfordton City Hair and posted
on bulletin boards. A huge crowd
j blocked the street for a block, anx
iously awaiting returns. At four
o'clock Wednesday morning the
number of onlookers had not dimin
ished.
Owens, the first precinct to report
Tuesday night, gave a small republi
can majority. Returns from other
precincts came in slowly, and at
eleven o'clock the republican candi
dates were jubilant over a large lead
;in the precincts reported. However,
! with the report of Cool Springs box
es shortly after midnight the cour
age of the democratic aspirants were
bolstered up by a lead over their op
ponents. Colfax precincts were also
! a deciding factor in the democratic
• column, giving a majority that the
: republicans were unable to overcome,
even with the report of Sulphur
- j Springs. The final outcome was in
! j doubt until Wednesday noon when
. j Duncan's Creek and Caroleen report
l' ed. These two precincts cut down
> j the democratic lead, but were still
s , unable to cruah the democrats en
i tirely.
i
The democratic ticket carried in
i the county with a majority of from
j 100 to 400 with-the exception of
[ recorder. On the face of reports
reaching the board of elections Wed
nesday Mr. John P. Bean, democrat
ic candidate for recorder had been
defeated by eight votes.
1 I The democratic majority in the
county is the smallest since the Fus
-5 j ion days of '96 and '9B. Normally the
county is democratic by a majority
; of from 1,500 to 2,000.
) The Democratic presidential ticket
. was defeated by about 1600 votes.
Approximately ten thousand peo
ple voted in the county Tuesday.
