The result of the election in Ringgold county yesterday was a sweeping victory for the Republican ticket. Those elected were Hon. T. Guy Roberts, representative; E. E. Cornwall, county auditor; Earle K. Allyn, county treasurer; W. M. McCandless, clerk of the district court; C. M. King, sheriff; C. E. Thompson, county recorder; Frank C. Lewis, county attorney; Dr. Samuel Bailey, county coroner; and Thomas Bender and J. N. Hoover, members of the board of supervisors.
A cartoon, the idea and practically all of the drawing for which was furnished by Orr C. Fisher, of this city, adorned the cover page of last week's Iowa Homestead. The cartoon showed a picture of the Iowa Farmer with his hand on the shoulder of Lieutenant Governor W. L. Harding, and the farmer was saying, "Don't Worry, Bill. We'll put you there." The returns from yesterday's election show that the prediction contained in Mr. Fisher's cartoon was verified as Mr. Harding was elected governor of Iowa by an overwhelming majority.
