Title of Sheriff Peter W. Duffy to the
office of sheriff of Holt county for the
ensuing four years was confirmed by
Judge Anson A. Welch, of Wayne, in
district court here Tuesday morning,
when the hearing of the contest pro
ceedings instituted by Robert Brittell,
the Republican nominee came to a
dose with the completion of the re
counting of the ballots cast at the
election last fall.
The results of the official canvas of
the election returns last fall showed
Sheriff Duffy the Democratic nominee,
to have been elected by a margin of
seven votes. Brittell, through his at
torney, A. 0. Williams of Williams &
Kryger, of Neligh, filed contest pro
ceedings in the county court shortly
after the completion of the canvas,
asking for a recount and alleging er
ror in practically every one of the
forty-one election precincts of' the
•A special appearance was made by
Sheriff Duffy, through his attorney,
Judge J. J. Harrington, of O’Neill, in
January, questioning the sufficiency of
the petition and the legality of the
service, which had been made on Duffy
as sheriff instead of as an individual.
County Judge C. J. Malone sustained
the special appearance and dismissed
the action. Brittell then went to the
district court alleging error and Judge
Robert R. Dickson as presiding jhdge
of the Fifteenth judicial district, called
in Judge Welch of the Ninth district
to hear the case. Monday Judge
Welch sustained the contention of
Brittell, took jurisdiction of the case
and ordered the recount of ballots as
prayed for to proceed. (Opening of the
sacks and recepticles containing the
ballots, in district court disclosed that
in all but thirteen of the forty-one pre
cincts of the county the precinct
election officials had neglected to fol
low the letter of the law in properly
sealing the official ballots or that the
fastenings and sealings had become
broken or destroyed so that the ballots
could not be admitted as evidence.
Judge Welch*ruled that in such in
stances the return made by the can
vassing board would stand. In the
recount of the thirteen precincts found
to be all right Sheriff Duffy gained in
each one, gaining altogether sixteen
votes, which with his lead of seven in
the official canvas gives him a ma
jority of twenty-three. At the con
clusion of the hearing Mr. Brittell con
gratulated his successful opponent.
He later announced that he was satis
fied with the result.
