NEW NAMES IN PROGRES
SIVE LIST OF candidates;
In the political upheaval that j
came with the lart primary, when
all parties mixed things up pretty
much on their elates, the two Cass
countv commissioners, C. F. Harris;
I in the second district, and Fred II.
Gorder in the third district, were
made the nominees of two parties
and without any effort on their part.
Mr. Harris was the regular republi
can nominee without opposition and
also received on: vote on the pro
gressive ticket, while Mr. Gorder, a
democrat received two progressive
votes out in his district and was
therefore nominated for the office.
There were several persons receiv
ing one or two votes, but as the law
requires ten per cent of the total
be given to the candidates to assure
them a place on the ballot.
