Refugee vote

The refugee vote for Congress, Board of Public Works, Senate, and House of Delegates, was not counted when the polls were closed. For Congress, from the Winchester district, the vote at the City Court-House is close between A. R. Boteler and F. W. M. Holliday. For Board, of Public Works for the Third District most of the votes cast were for B. F. Beall. From other Congressional districts the vote is small. From the 2d or Norfolk district it is believed that Col. D J. Godwin leads the poll in this city, over Messrs. Parham, Hume and Mahone. For the State Senate from Jefferson and Berkeley there is a close vote between E. L. Moore and A. C. Hammond. For the House of Delegates from Jefferson county most of the votes cast were for J. Y. Beall and Wm. Burnett, and from Berkeley county for Israel Robinson and Ro. W. Hunter.
