For the last two years all of the county
officials have been demociats. but the
republicans gained two In this election,
Frank A. Barta, clerk of the district
court, and Charles A. Nlppell, surveyor.
The democrats have had five of the seven
members of the county board for the last
two ytars, but the republicans gained two
new members, giving them four of the
seven members, and consequently the con
trol of the board. The republicans feel
elated over Judge Welch carrying the
county by a majority of 122 over ex-Sen
tor W. V. Allen for dlsnlct Judge. The
democrats figured that Senator Allen
would carry this county by several hun
dred majority. Yhe democrats also fig
ured that Dan V. Stephens Would carry
this county anywhere from 700 to l.V,
but their hopes were blighted,, as he only
carried It by 4.S over James C. Klllott.
The question to bond tho county for a
new court house was defeated by a
majority of LOT!:', and the proposition
for an investigation of all county t?eords
for the last twenty years carried by a
majority of fif.3. While the republicans
did not get as much as they figured they
would, still they are pretty well satisfied
on account of capturing the ounty board
