New Deal Carries 46 States
Stefan Only Republican Congressman Elected, With
A Majority of Nearly 40,000. Cochran
Retains Governor’s Chair.
'well, the battle of ballots is over
and the New Dealers have triumph
ed in the nation as well as in the
state. The entire democratic ticket
was successful in the state, with
the lone exception of land commis
sioner, to which office the present
incumbent, Swanson, republican
A was elected, but the voters at the
■ same time adopted a constitutional
amendment doing away with the
President Roosevelt carried the
state with a majority of about
98,000. Senator Norris, running
as an independent candidate with
the active support of the national
administration and the democratic
state committee, was re-elected
over Robert Simmons with a maj
ority of about 30,000.
In this county the vote was fairly
close on president, but the unofficial
returns give the county to Roose
velt with a majority of 188 with
the mail vote yet to be counted
There were 169 mail votes sent out
and there will probably be 165 re
turned. The total vote of the
county at the last election is about
8,000, compared to 7.285 four years
ago. This is the largest vote ever
cast in the county.
Four years ago this county went
into the Roosevelt column with a
majority of 2,386. In that election
he received 4,761 votes in the
county compared to 3,839 this year.
The county vote increased 700 this
year and the president l'eceived
922 less votes in the county than
he did four years ago, which‘clearly
shows that the farmers of the
county are opposed to the New
Deal. The president’s greatest
strength was in the towns of the
county and not in the farming
In this county Congressman Karl
Stefan was the real race horse on
election day. He received 5,317
votes in the county, as against 1,657
for his democratic opponent, and
131 cast for McNamara the Union
party candidate, or a plurality of
3,660, or a clear majority of 3,529.

Walters and Gibson Tied In Fifth Supervisor District
With 14 Mail Votes To Count. Carson
And Smith Are Winners.
The fight for district judge creat
ed quite a little interest in the
county and in this fight Judge Dick
son emerged an easy victor. He
carried Holt county by 1,525 votes
and carried every county in the
district, and when the mail votes
are counted he will have a majority
of over 4,500, the largest he has
ever received. For county judge
C. J. Malone had no opposition and
we did not take the time to compile
his vote as he received practically
all the votes cast.
For member of the unicameral
legislature F. J. Brady, of Atkin
son, was an easy winner, carrying
every county in the district. On the
face of the returns he carried Holt
county with a majority of 137 and
his majorities in the other counties
will place his majority in the dis
trict over 1,000.
A contest that was closely watch-1
ed by many was the fight for sup
ervisor in the Second district, in
which Supervisor John Carson was
seeking re-election being opposed
by Robert E. Tomlinson. On the
face of the returns Carson won out
.vith a majority of 107 and there
are not enough mail votes in the
district to offset this majority,
which will probably be increased.
In the Fourth district Chairman
Louis W. Reimer was the candid
ate of both parties and of course
was an easy victor.
In the Fifth district John W.
Walter, who was appointed, to fill
the vacancy caused by the death of
Ezra Cook and was the republican
candidate for election, was opposed
by J. P. Gibson, of McClure, This
proved to be one of the closest Con
tests of the election. The unofficial
returns show that each candidate
received 600 votes and they are
tied. There are fourteen mail votes
from this district to be counted and
the outcome of this contest will
not be known until the official can
vass is completed, the end of the
In the Sixth district B. J. Sherry
was the democratic candidate and
Walter K. Smith the republican
candidate, the latter having de
feated John Steinhauser, now rep
resenting that district at the prim
ary election. A write-in campaign
was carried on in this district the
voters writing in the name of John
Steinhauser. Steinhauser carried
Stuart by 50 and was leading in the
race until the last precinct reported.
The unofficial vote shows that
Smith was elected over Steinhauser
with a vote of 340 to 316, Sherry
receiving 310. The vote received
in his home precinct, as well as in
the other precincts of the district,
where they had to write his name
in, must be very gratifying to Mr.
Steinhauser, who has represented
the district on the board for many
