When Baltimore voters go to the polls for tomorrow's primary election, they will choose several courthouse officers, including sheriff, clerk of the court and register of wills. All three Democratic incumbents are running for re-election -- Sheriff John W. Anderson, Clerk of the Court Frank M. Conaway and his wife, Register of Wills Mary W. Conaway. Each is being challenged by one Democratic opponent. There are no Republican challengers. The opponents -- sheriff candidate Shelton J. Stewart and clerk of the court candidate William Allen -- might be familiar because they were forced from elected courthouse offices in the 1980s amid investigations.
