a Combination of Railroads and
Brewers to Punish Sheldon
The oflicial returns on the
state eiectiou give the Democrats
the governorship aud the rail
way commissioner. The rest of
3tate ticket is Republican. The
official vote shows the following'
totals and pluralities :
Plurality - . 3,389
Clarence Mackey of Aualey
carried this county by a consider
able larger vote than did W. B. '
Kastham of this city but the re
turns for the whole state indi
cate that on the. whole Eastham
was the stronger of the two Cas
ter county condidates on the
Democratic state ticket , if we
judge their strength front the
standpoint of plurality against
tkcm. On the other hand tke
vote shows that Mackey secured
578 more votes than Eastham
did in spite of the fact that the
plurality against Mackey is 1486
greater than the plurality of
Cowles over Easthaui.
The vota shows the result of
the special effort made by tke
Democrats to defeat Governor
Shcdon and Railway Commis
sioner Williams. It is on these
two candidates that the Republ-
can managers claim that tke
railroads and brewers united
efforts. The railroads desired to
punish Sheldon for hti op
position to their dominating
state poltics aud the legislature
and Williams for work against
them on the railway commi&sioot
and the brewers desired to da-
feat Sheldon because they
thought Shallenberger would ba
more favorable to the liquor
interests. This strong combi
nation against Sheldon defeated
him by over 5,800 votes , while
Williams lost out by 650.
