First four elected.
Total vote cast, 828.
Number of ballots thrown out, 42.
The municipal primary yesterday
for the nomination o' a mayor and
four aldermen was almost a com
plete administration victory, four of
their five candidates winning by safe
majorities, as will be seen by the
above, vote. The only defeated
candidate on (heir ticket was J. B.
Bankston, who. ran considerably be
hind the other candidates.
The election will go down in his
\ory as one of the best-nature i
contested fights in the history i>;
Brunswick. Though crowds tstood
around the polls during the entire
day there was not a single difficulty,
or hardly a dispute. The supporters
of the two tickets were on tne scene
early and worked faithfully until tne
last vote was cast at 5:30 o’clock.
The weather wan all that could
have been desired for an election,
if was an ideal day, which please.:
the politicians. That they worked
hard is best evidenced by the fact
that out of a itotal of about 875 reg
istered white voters 828 of them
went to the polls and voted.
The new Australian ballot system
was in vogue for the first time and
i't proved successful and satisfactory
fo both sides. Forty-two of the 828
votes cast were thrown out. This
was done owing to the fact that they
were not prepared according to reg
ulations. Some of the voters placed
a cross opposite ithe names of the
candidates for whom they desired
t.e vote; others failed to vote foi
five of Hite ten candldfitest while
others voted for too many. It was
generally expected that between 25
and 50 ballots would be counted out.
Both' Sides Were Confident.
The result was a great surprise
to the (Goodyear supporters. They
were confident when the polls closed
that their candidate had been elect
ed. On the other hand, the Symons
•< porters, who had claimed the
ejection all along, admitted that they
thought the result was close. Dur
ing the early part of the day they
were sanguine that their candidate
would be elected by 100 or more
votes, but during the last few hours
they were somewhat dubious as to
When the polls opened at 6:3'
o'clock both appeared to be
perfectly confident as to the result,
for the first tour or two Col. Good
year and his ticket took the lead
Then the administration forces
•trt#d Uieir work, The city and
jteutr employees, who voted almost
! solid for the administration
i started to coming up: it was
dent that the word had been
among them and it is safe to
that of the large number men
emlrfloyed by the city and county
I not over ten, if that many, voted
against the Symons ticket. A ma
jority rested under the impression
that to vote against the Symons
ticket meant that they would lose
their jobs, and for that reason, prob
ably more than any other, they cast
the straight administration ticket.
Big Vote Polled.
The supporters worked hard dur
ing the entire day and the total
number of votes cast surprised both
sides. When the poll closed and it
was announced that 828 votes had
been polled, both factions considere u
that a point in their favor. Then it
was, too, that the friends of Col.
Goodyear were sanguine that he had
been ejected. While the Symons
forces claimed the election at that,
time, they said that the majority
would be small, and It is safe to pre
dict. that not a man in Brunswick
thought that cither candidate would
win by over 50 votes. In fact both
parties were claiming the election
by that number.
As the count started a large num
ter of Interested people congregated
around the front door of the city hall
and listened to the managers count,
the votes. The first fifty votes was
about an even split, but after that
Mr. Symons commenced to lake the
lead and all through The count his
majortiy steadily Increased. Before
the managers completed the count
Ids election wits conceded by the
opposition, as many on the outside
had kept, pretty. good tab as the
names were called out by the man
When the managers finally finish
ed the count the large crowd which
had stood on the outside practically
knew the result, and was only wait
ing to /hear the official figures.
Straight tick ;ts were scarce, in fact
not over four hundred, including
both sides, were cast. As will be
noted by the figures above Alderma o
Robinson went in by only a majority
of 13 over H. M. King, who came
in second on the people’s ticket.
The city executive committee will
meet this morning and officially an
nounce the result.
The Next Council,
Brunswick's city council for 1907
will be composed of the following:
‘.Mayor, W. F. Symons; aldermen,

was pumped out and a fresh start
southward was made November 16.
The following (lay high seas and a
southerly gale were encountered;
spanker and foresail were carried
away, and the vessel again ihegan
leaking. The crew, terrified with
continued disaster, had to be driven
to the punks and with difficulty the
vessel was worked into Bulls bay,
where It sank.
The captain and crew stayed on
board until 3:30 Sunday afternoon,
and when the vessel rolled over on
her side, they took to the ship’s
boat and made for the lighthouse.

SOME MONET IS NEEDED^
He Says That If Funds Were

New Be Secured and
Atlanta, Nov. 20.—1f needed funds
become available and the Depart
ment of Agriculture is iglven the
proper authority, it is not unlikely
that a number of Scotch ioimigrauts
will come to Georgia to nettle. Com
missioner of Agriculture Hudson ban
jiUSt p&eeived a letter from James
A Skrachan, of Savannah, who la
visiting his old home in Scotland
and who, before he loft the state,
wa; & iven a provisional commission
oy Mr, Hudson as commissioner of
immigraticn for Georgia
The state laws make no provision
for such appointment, but the mat
ter was taken up by the Department
of Agriculture In a sort of tentative
way, largely for the purpose of In
vestigial ion. Mr. Strachan could
have accomplished Ipractleally noth
ing if he had not had some official
showing, and it was for the purpose
of giving official color to his work
that he was given a commission.
Mr. Strachan has been aible to in
terest a number of persons in the
advantages that would accrue as a
result of coming to Georgia, and has
already sent a small party of Scotch
men to Savannah. He calls atten
tion however, to the fact that lack
of funds makes it almost impossible
to carry on tlie work In a satisfac
ic|y manner, and It may be that
tlie legislature at the coming ses
sion will be asked to make somo
provision for this class of work.
