Yesterday was the day set by the county Democratic Executive Committee fpr the primary elec tion to settle upon a man for Tax Collector, the place made vacant by (he death oi Major Furlow. There were live candidates lh the raoe, and tor some time they have been livening things up by their work. Each bad a backing of strong friendi, and each made a strong effort to wtn the raoe. Yes terday, bright and early, the voting was begun,, and kept up pretty: steadily till 6 o’clock. From the first it was apparent that In the- city Messrs. Dunn and Callaway' had the bulge, and it was a ques tion as to which of these would lead. Aad antipe election yarapi to go the way the city went, Inter-’ est at once settled upon these two, although fhe friend, of’the other candidate* remained hopeful. As the evening'dfe*' on it became more apparent that one of the two above mentioned gentlemen would lead, the friends of each claiming. ton of U, and the lieueei is $ t h't'rtrrlrfT'r. from th, Atlanta.

Now that the official# have bud their eay: in.- (he: transfer of the State road to the new-lessees, there can be nothing wrong In letting , tl&> men who worked for the. old lessees talk some. .Aod they are talking, too. Some are talking a great deal, some veiy little and some not at all. Stilt the talk la Interesting. “That old road," said a- man who baa been on the road for year*. “Is a regular bonanza to the - State. Why your children and mine tful be rich by being Georgian*. Thir ty-five thousand dollars ai month for It la nothing, and the-new les sees know It.. In! Chattanooga alone they will get back a great big sllce of that rentil,’ to s*/ nothing of what they will make by some changes right herd la Atlanta.. In the seohanges they will receive an inoome the road has never had be- fore.” “In Chattanooga the State’s real 'estate Is assessed at (1,900,000. It fronts about 600 . tent on Ninth g reet, and ad]olh^tbeuiil&n depot. Intb Is one of Cbattaqopga’s lead- 1 lDg streets. Then It fronts ou Mar ket street, Chattanooga’s biggest street,800 feet. On this are the road’s freight houses slid other' buildings. things still remained thus, and no The count was Impatiently awaited for, and a large croWtf gathered lannfol^rtheT windows; waiting for the result. A little _ after (even It was announced, anfiltgi Mr. J. B. Dunn leads the ticket here by 84 vote*. j .v" j' Here lj the vote as cast in tbA’ city: . ", !•? ' ! * J." B. Dunn, 227. ^ ;* ■ Merrel Callaway, 193. R. 8. Windsor, 108. * ’ Y p.iviQ John Sims, 58. ■< P. V. Wesson, 4. W. 8. Windsor, 2. The last two were evidently meant tor Mr. R. S. Windsor, but had to be counted as caat. By this It will be seen that Mr. Dunn led Mr. Callaway by 84, and, that unleas the oountry precincts gave the latter great gains that J. B. Dunn would be the man. Tha vote In the 16th stood: Sims, S3; Windsor,25; Callaway, 2; Wesson, 0; Dunn, 0. In the 28th: Windsor, 21; Calla way, 5; Dunn, 4; Wesson, 1; Sims, 1. Others were heard from, and it was estimated that Dunn had a lead of SO, with three preclnota to hear from. These are the old 26th, the new 26th and the 29tb. The first of these la .claimed by Callaway; the second by Dunn, and the third said to be in favor of Wesson. This would yet give Dunn the race, if the estimate from the other praolota are right, and it may be ■aid with confidence that he haa the place. It was a oloee nee, and Mr. Dunn gets the place by a email plurality. He ie a well known and popular gentlemen, and ie a good man for theplaee.
