No Second Primary Likely To

More than 8,000 Haywood voters

with a total of Willi votes.
John Cube, candidate, for represen

The closest race on the entire tick
et Was that between Charles C.
Francis and Edwin, llayniy for the
office of Register id Deeds. As the
votes- began to cflitu' in Saturday ,
night, .first one and then the other
was in the lead, and even on Sunday
morning the winner could not be defi
nitely determined. The final count,
however, as issued by the board of
elections, gave Francis 4,0.rf Votes
and Ilaynes 3,702.
Due to the fact that the nominee
for sheriff did not receive a ma
jority of the votes ;Hst, there has lecn
much speculation as to whether a
second primary will be called. No
definite statement has been made for
publication, regarding a second pri
mary for the office of she-riff, but it
has been -learned', from a reliable
source that "then' will be no second
primary for county offices,"
In the race, for state offices, most
of the interest centered around that
between the candidate for governor.
Hoey carried the county with 3,2!H
votes. Graham was a close second,
with 2,991, while McDonald took
third place, with 1,738.
All indications are that there will
he a second primary in the race for
governor. In the event that it is
called, it will be held on Saturday,
