What Ouo Vote Accomplished.
The fact that in Indiana tho official
count shows that a candidato lias been
re-elected by Just one vote leads The South
Bend Tribune to remember that In 1842
Lot Day, Sr., was tho Democratic candi
date for sheriff and William Cosgrovo was
the Whig candidate. When the official
canvass of tho vote was made Lot Day
was elected by one majority. In 1844
Hugh C. Flannegan was elected represen
tative by ouo majority. He went to the
legislature and his vote elected a United
States senator by one majority. The
United States senator's one vote brought
on the Mexican war. So St. Joseph
county has had an experience that no
other county perhaps in the United States
has had with a single vote. Four men
elected to important offices by single
votes and tho Mexican war brought on by
a single vote. Now York Sun.
