A Glimpse Into Dallas County Elections - 1922
25 July 1922
ONE DALLAS COUNTY RACE IS IN DOUBT
SMITH 2,173, GILL 2,137 - LATE TOTALS DISTRICT 3
Run-Offs Practically Assured for District
Attorney and Representative, Place No. 5
In Dallas County practically the only race
remaining in doubt as the result of Saturday's
Democratic primary election is that between C.
D. Smith and J. W. Gill for the nomination as
County Commissioner from District No. 3.
The latest revised total made Monday night by
Dallas County Election Bureau gave Smith, the
present incumbent, a total of 2,173, and Gill a
total of 2,137. Gill was the klan-indorsed
candidate. The official count may be necessary
to determine the result in this contest.
Both Maury Hughes and Epps G. Knight
showed slight gains in percentage as against
their leading opponents in the revised
tabulations Monday, practically assuring the
necessity of a run-off in the races for District
Attorney and Representative, Place No. 5.
Judge Harmon Gains.
Cox has a lead of less than 900 votes over
Hughes, while Adams has polled some 2,500
votes. Purl's lead over Knight has been cut to
slightly more than 500, with Mitchner polling
more than 1,800 votes.
Judge Frank Harmon made substantial gains in
his race against Wiley A. Bell and the latest
tabulations showed the latter by about 400 votes
in the lead. An official count possibly would
make some change in this race.
Totals herewith include complete returns from
79 boxes and partial returns from 13 boxes.
