New Deal Carries 46 States GEORGE NORRIS IS ELECTED UNITED STATES SENATOR AS INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE Stefan Only Republican Congressman Elected, With A Majority of Nearly 40,000. Cochran Retains Governor’s Chair. LAND COMMISSIONER OFFICE IS ABOLISHED '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 KARL STEFAN A was elected, but the voters at the ■ same time adopted a constitutional amendment doing away with the office. 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 communities. 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.

(Continued on page 4, column 1.) FRANK BRADY WILL REPRESENT DISTRICT IN THE LEGISLATURE Walters and Gibson Tied In Fifth Supervisor District With 14 Mail Votes To Count. Carson And Smith Are Winners. NO OPPOSITION FOR MALONE AND REIMER 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 JUDGE ROBERT R. DICKSON 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 week. 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 years. Following is the total vote re ceived by the various candidates in the county: For President: Franklin I), Roosevelt .3839 Alfred M. Landon 3651 William Lemkc 147 For U. S.

In this contest Judge Dickson won re election by the largest majority he ever received, which is conclusive proof that his services on the bench have been satisfactory to the cit izens of the district. Following is the unoffic ial vote of the candidates in each county in the district: Harring Dickson ton Rock 1130 407 Brown ... 1542 833 Boyd 1853 868 Holt _ 4367 2842 Keya Paha 902 354 Total ... 9794 5304 Dickson’s Majority 4490 Drug Store Ready • For Saturday Opening The Johnson Drug Company has an advertisement in this issue of The Frontier announcing the open ing of their new store on next Sat urday morning, and he invites the public to call and become acquaint ed.
