PRESIDENT COOLIDGE AND
SENATOR NORRIS OVER
BY NEBRASKA VOTERS
President Calvin Coolidge and
United States Senator George Norris
were overwhelmingly endorsed by Ne
braska voters at'the primary election
Tuesday and Adam McMullen, of Beat
rice, received he republican nomina
tion for the governorship by a hand
some plurality over Albert N. Math
ers, of Gearing. In the democratic
column Governor Charles Bryan ran
very far ahead of Chares Graff, his
opponent for the nomination, and John
J. Thomas, of Seward, received the
nomination for the United States
senate. There were no democratic
candidates for the presidental nomi
nation filed in the state, but William
McAdoo received the big end of the
written in vote, witn uovernor Bryan
second. The governor has announced
that he does not consider the prefer
ence expressed for Mr. McAdoo as
binding on the delegates to the demo
cratic national convention, however;
following in this his brother, W. J.
Bryan, tvho at the Baltimore conven
tion disregarded the voice of the Ne
braska democracy which had declared
for Champ Clark. In the Sixth con
gressional district Congressman Rob
ert Simmons was renominated without
opposition and the democrats on the
returns now in have selected Charles
W. Beal, of Broken Bow, to be de
feated by him this fall. Mr. Beal
holds the unique distinction of having
been defeated more times for congress
in the Big Sixth than W. J. Bryan has
for the presidency. In the candidacies
of local interest Judge Robert R. Dick
son ran far ahead of Judge James
Berryman, of Bassett, for district
judge, although both are nominated
to contest against each other this fall,
and County Judge Malone is running
better than two to one ahead of S. E.
Kelley, of Atkinson, who is the other
contestant for the county judgship.
W. L. Philley, of Ewing, is nominated
over Ross Amspoker, of Springvlew,
for state senator from the Twenty
Second district and will oppose John
A. Robertson, the democratic nominee,
this fall, and J. M. Hunter has been
named as the republican nominee and
Frank Harrington the democratic one
for representative from the Sixty
Fourth representative district. Ira
Mess had no opposition for the repub
iican nomination for clerk of the dis
trict court and also apparently has re
ceived the democratic nomination by
having his name written in. Chauncey
Keyes, of Inman, apparently has re
ceived the republican nomination for
county assessor and John Melvin the
Following are the unofficial totals

county with several precincts yet to

United States Senator—Republican:
Secretary of State—Republican—
Auditor of Public Accounts—Repub.
State Senator—64th District—Rep.—
District Judge—15th Judicial Dis
Indication are that Chauncy Keyes,
of Inman, received the nomination
for county assessor on the republican
ticket. There was no candidate on the
printed ballot and Mr. Keyes’ name
was written in for the office quite ex
tensively in the east end of the
county. C. C. Millard, of O’Neill, and

PHILLEY DEFEATS AMSPOKER
FOR STATE SENATE IN
The Rev. W’illiam Leonard Philley,
of Ewing, will represent the Twenty
Second district, comprising Holt,
Boyd, Brown, Keya Paha and Rock
counties, in the Nebraska state senate
next year. Mr. Philley on the face of
the returns now in has defeated his
opponent in the republican primary,
Ross Amspoker, of Springview, by
approximately three hundred votes.
The unofficial returns in Holt county, '
with several precincts yet to hear
from, give Philley 701 votes and Ams
poker 372. In the other counties of
the district Mr. Philley ran well up
with his opponent; in Keya Paha
county, Mr. Amspoker's home county,
tying him with 163 votes each, with
three precincts out. The vote in the
entire district is most complimentary
to the popularity of the Ewing man,
as Mr. Amspoker, his opponent, is one
of the leading attorneys of the west
end of the district and enjoys a large
acquaintance and the respect and
confidence of all who know him
throughout the entire district.
