White, Elmore Apparently Nominated For Mercer Sheriff Only One Major Statewide Contest Remains Unsettled Democratic Race For Secretary State Between Chilton And O'Brien Yet Undecided; Victors Congratulated By Opponents Charleston, W. Va.. May 12. (AP)—A see-saw contest for th£ Democratic nomination for secretary of state continued in West Virginia tonight more than 24 hours after the primary polls closed. The slow tabulation of yesterday’s ballots kept hidden1 the eventual winner for that nomination, but unofficial returns had leaders in the various other races holding sizable margins with the outcomes not likely to be upset. D. Pitt O’Brien, chief clerk in the secretary of state's office who is seeking the secretaryship, went ahead of Sam X. Chilton of Charleston, campaigning for the post* for the fifth time on the Democratic ticket. Victors In Mercer County Primary O’Brien Leads Returns from 2,151 of the state’s 2.788 pr^incts gave O'Brien 43,-931 and Chilton 43.488. Chilton had taken away the lead from O'Brien earlier in the day. O’Brien's father, William S.i Congress Races Still Counted Heavy Vote Results Trickle In Slowly Charleston. W. Va., May 12.
