nnough returns were received before 11
o'clock last night to Indicate that Wilson

the returns from one country precinct
In Hoomcr township, where Taft only re

Up to 11 o'clock only one precinct In
the county had reported the vote , of

candidates, Tho vote was nearly three
to one In favor of the democrats. Dar-

Harding and True, democrats, 154, 1M and
1M. rcBpectlvely. Talmer and Wasscr, the
other candidates, got 7a and 85 each.
Tho election In tho city was phenomenal
for Its lark of excitement and for the
fullness of tho vote In relation to the
registry. The voting was steady all day,
and there mi scarcely, a moment that alt
nf tho booths In tho various precincts
were not occupied. It required wrvorn.1
minutes for the swiftest men to mark
their ballots and somo of the Mower fel
lows many times that long. In one pre
cinct thirty men were shut out because
there was no chance for thein to mark
their ballots and get them Into tho ballot
boxes beforo the polls closed at 7 o'clock.
Not an arrest was made all day for any
misconduct about the polls, a fow drunks
being the harvest of the police.

Aside from tho fct that tilt day was
orderly and quiet and the voting- early
and strong the featuru In the capital
city today was tho fact that practically
al thj activity was by and on behalf
Of local candidates. Tho fbJht on the
county ticket was far more Impressive
than that on the national ticket. The
election workers were all out for ono or
moro of tho county or district candidates.
The republican county commlttco had a
hundred automobiles out at work and all
at tho service of persons Interested In
tho entire republican ticket, and there
were a number of progressive party
workers equipped the eamo way; but tho
great majority of Individual workers at
ib noils wero Interested In Bome local
candidate for whom votes were solicited.
Tho fight was complicated by the fact
f the third party ticket actively In tho
field and because ssvoral of the repub
lican candidates have Incurred tho
nmlty of tholr own party.- The religious
question entered largely here" because of
tbe fact that on the republican county
ticket were flyo Catholics and this
