There is a row in Elmore County over the Probate Judgeship. Lancaster, a candidate for the office, withdrew from the convention after the 416th ballot taking as many delegates with him as he could, and Col. W. T. Lary was nominated on the 417th ballot. Lancaster after taking 416 whacks at the office inside the party convention, now proposes to take a whack at it outside the party. It is hoped he will be snowed under in August.
