BUT ONE CONTEST
No Opponents A^rainst Hoard of
Commissioners, Judije or
FEW C- O V CANDIDATES
There will bo but one contest on
the Moore county ticket in the Dem
ocratic primary on May 25th, that
involving the cnndiclricy for the
State House fif Ilopri'sentativcs.
The time for canrliUates to file for
r.ffice expired lust Saturday niffht,
and the coniplete list shows no oppn.
sition to the candidacies of the Dem
ocratic Board of Commissioners, to
the Judge of the Keeoider’s Court,
to the County Solicitf)r, nor to the
Board of Kdueation. Not only will
Judge J. Vance Kowe and Solicitor
W. A. Leland McKeithen have no
opposition in the Democratic pri.
inary, but they will be unopposed by
the Republicans in the general elec
tion in November. Republicans nom
inated only a County Board anrl a
candidate for the Legislature, Herbert
P. Seawoll, Jr., who made a strong
run against \V. R. Clegg for the
same office two years ago.
There will be no election of Sher
iff, Clerk of Court or Coroner this
year, these offices have been made
of four-year tenure two years ago.
The present unopposed County
Board comprises Wilbur H. Currie of
Carthage, Gordon Cameron of Pine-
hurst, T. Frank Cameron of Cam
eron, L. R. Pteynolds of Ilighfalls and
W. J. Dunlap of Hemp.
Republican nominees for County
Commissioner.s are: Carthago di.strict,
Cleveland Cnglc; Deep River—Rit
ters, Wiley Gaines of Glendon; Shef
fields—Ben.salem. Roy Garner, Hemp;
McNeills—Greenwood, Alton M. Cam.
eron, V.i.ss; Mineral Springs - Sand
hills, Henry B. Fry, Pinehurst.
Candidates for the Board of Eclu.
cation are Chairman John W. Gra
ham of Aberdeen, John F. Taylor of
Pinehur.st, L. B. McKeithen of Cam
eron and W. E. Kelly of Carthage,
who, with Dr. J. F, Davis of Glen
don comprises the present board. Dr.
Davis’ term does not expire until
The one Democratic primary con
test is that between W. R. Clegg of
Carthage, J. Hawley Poole of We.st
End, and Malcolm J. McLean of Car
thage for the State Legislature. Mr.
Clegg is the present incumbent, Mr.
Poole his predeccessor in office, and
Mr. McLean a newcomer to politics
who is making friends rapidly
throughout the county.
This contest, with the five-man
race for Congress, are furnishing the
excitement locally. The Congressional
candidates arc Representatives W.
O. Burgin of Lexington, C. B. Deane
of Rockingham, “Bob” Steele of
Rockingham, Giles Y. Newton of
Gibson, and D. C. Phillip.s of South,
ern Pines. Some political wiseacres
predict Mr. Burgin’s nomination on
the first ballot, but others do not
believe this likely. That there will be
a second primary in any event is
probab’e, as no one of the seven Dem
ocratic candidates for Governor is
given an outside chance to win in
the first primary. So we may have
the Congressional fight all over again
along with the Gubernatorial run.
