As a result of Tuesday's primary eection Hen , Henry L. Whitfield and H6n. Theodore G. Bilbo will re- main in the run-off for governor in the second primary, which i to be hId on Tuesday, August 28th. R- turns from practically all the coun- ties in the state show that Whitfield is leading Bilbo by about 20,000 voes, while Conner is in third place with about 15000 votes loss than Bilbo. The Clarion-Ledger gives the foi- lowing returns on Thursday night after a tabulation of 243,617 votes: II. L. Whitfield ................... 82,324 T. G. Bilbo .............. ). ............ 61,7151 I M. 3. Conner ........................ 46,761 L. C. Franklin ...................... 36,605 Percy Bell ............................ 16,266 The fact that Bilbo is to be in the second primaW came as a great sur- prise, as few pple entertained th idea that such a thing was possible. The poor showing made b: Conner, wm lost his home county to Bilbo: was another blow. The large vote given to Whitfield was, however, one of the looked-for results that really did materialize. A telephone message bn Friday morning from the daily press gave ou the information that Whitheld had about 81,000 votes as comparec to 64,000 for Bilbo. From the same source we learne that the following state candidatee were elected: For Lieutenant Gov- ernor, Dennis Murphree; For Sec- retary of Sate, Jos. W. Power; -For Adkor, Gee. D. Refly; For Trea urer, Boa S. Lowry; For Insurance Commissioner, T. M. Henry, re- elected; For Land Oommissioer, R. D. Moore, re-elected; For Rev. enue Agent, W. J.
