M'KITTRICK, September 12. —-John H. -'Murphy, Constable of Mc-Kittrlck township won : his fight against the recaliers today. He was retained in office by a vote of 158 to 98.  A heavy vote was cast and the interest was keen in . the. election. It is stated that the heavy vote polled by Murphy among the north and oil workers brought him victory, but in the city here the vote was about evenly divided. There was only one polling place (in town) and 268 ballots were cast.. Twelve 'ballots were thrown out, being improperly marked.  Barney D'Arcy, the recall candidate for Constable .was beaten oy. the same proportion as the vote showed against the recall. The vote was:  Against recall, 158.  For recall, 98.  Majority for Murphy, 80.  ¡Constable Murphy. -had many friends working for his . election. Conveyances were placed at his disposal and there was plainly a strong feeling that he should be retained in office.

It was the first recall election ever held in Kern "county and there w^s quite a sentiment -developed that the recall is not the best thing in the world to make use in attempting to remove an official.  Murphy came to McKittrick from Bakersfield several years ago. He was elected Constable in the fall of 1910 by a close majority after a spirited campaign. He was formerly in the cigar store business in Bakersfield.
