.Miean primary was also held at!
same time, and some 1,100 re-j

■ nator and solicitor. The unpreced- I
tnud number of votes cast was a j
surprise in all quarters. While much t
rivalry had been shown between can- j
didates for United States senate and J
sheriff's office, political observers
had forecast, a county vote of less ?
than 4.000. As it was approximately
-100 more Democrats voted Satur-«
ray than did in the primary two j
l
years ago. j
The election passed quietly in all.
parts of the coiinty. Contrary to
general belief and expectation, there j
v. as but little confusion shown in j
voting under the new system. The
iew system slowed up voting in
some of the larger precincts, but no
confusion lresuljed f except 5n one
precinct.

Much Interest Shov^n.
Much interest was shown through

cast for James Dockery, republican j
candidate for solicitor, as compared I
"with the votes of his two opponents, j

NO FILLING STATIONS
FOR UNION TOWNSHIP
An interesting bit 0 f informa
tion has been released by the
Census Bureau of this: district
—Union township does not
a single filling station within its
bounds'. One exchange, com
menting on this fact, says
"That's one for Ripley in this
day when there is a filling sta
tion at every cross roads and on
every corner." This bit of infor
mation doesn't indicate, by any
means, that Union township is
a 'backward' or remote town
ship. Union has a population of
946 people, with 168 farms,
ranking in both classes as tenth
among the fourteen townships.
The township showed a substan
tial gain over 1920. The entire
district is a rich farming com
munity, ranking among the most
productive sections of the coun
ty. Its fine schools and churches,
as well as its many comfortable
and luxurious farm homes are
easily accessible over good roads,
for the most part topsoiled.
Numbered among its fine citi
zenship are some of Rutherford
county's most, progressive, pros
perous and outstanding citizens.
Simpson, H. H. Tucker and W. G.
Harris are entitled to a second race
if they so desire*.
In the event of a seeond primary,
it will be held on Saturday, July 5.
Candidates have until Friday of this
week to file for' a second race.
No Opposition.
The democratic candidate for state
legislature, O. R. Coffield, had no
opposition. Mrs. Minnie F. Blanton,
candidate for county treasurer, and
members of the county board of edu
cation were unopposed. By an act
of the last legislature the county re
corder and the solicitor of the record
ers court will be appointed by the
board of county commissioners in -
stead of by popular vote.
