Republican Wins in Walker Election
Jasper.—Thomas J. Calvert, Republican, will represent Walker County in the lower body of state legislature when that body convenes in July, taking the place of Dr. O. Manasco, who died recently.
Calvert defeated Frank Marques, Democrat, by a majority of more than 500 votes at the election Tuesday, the returns showed Wednesday. Opponents of the Bankhead’s claim the victory of Calvert was a Bankhead defeat, as Marques is regarded as a Bankhead adherent.
