Unofficial Vote on Judges Is Now
Five Counties Yet to Send In their
Reports of Election.
LINCOLN, Nov. 0. With eighty-
seven counties reported completely
and with partial returns from two oth
ers, the candidates for supreme judge
show the following strengths: Dean,
88,572; Good, 88,059; Sullivan, 80,450;
Barnes, 91,023; Fawcett, 90,900; Sedg
wick, 91,080. This gives Fawcett a
end over Sullivan of 1,450 votes.
The counties still to be heard from
arc Chase, Keya Paha, MePherson,
Sheridan and Sioux. Partial returns
arc on hand from Sheridan and Sioux.
Last year Chase, Keya Paha, Sioux
and MePherson gave majorities for
Taft of 251, while Sheridan went for
Bryan by 24. The partial returns
from Sheridan and Sioux indicate that
both will be for the republican candi
dates by small majorities. Judge Faw
cett's majority over Judge Sullivan will
be about 1,000. Official returns are
still lacking at the secretary of state's
office from twenty-five counties.
Counties still have a week in which to
get these returns into the hands of the
secretary of state. If they are not
there by that time a messenger will be
sent to the delinquent counties, who
shall be paid the expense of his trip by
the county in question.
