remembered that in the party disaf
fection a great mass of republicans
did not vote at all.
Changet Two Years Ago.
"Turning to the election of Novem
ber, 114, three important political
facts are evident :
"1. The republicans carried upon
national issues states that would give
a clear majority in the electoral col
lege and elect a republican president.
"2. The democratic majority in the
present house is only the result of the
progressive vote in certain districts of
the country, and the democrats are
really a minority party in the house of
V Two-thirds of the progressive
vote of has not only ceased to
support third party candidates, but
has returned to the support of repub
lican principles and candidates.
"Twenty-three states were carried
by republicans with a total of 88 elec
toral votes. This is a majority of
twenty-two over the 60 necessary for
a choice. In three states there was a
division on isues. 1'htis. in
; Oregon, South !.ikota and Nevada
democratic senators were elected
, while lepuhlicati congressional dele
gations were chosen. At this election
.MO democratic members, of (he lower
house of congress were chosen. In
t hut v -nine of the congressional dis
tnetv however, the progressive vote
was laici than the democratic plural-
n o that, had it not been for the
.progressive vote, the democratic mem
bership in the present bouse would be
. onlv ll'I, with -MS necessary for a ma
loulv. In tout states, California.
i olorado, Indiana and Oregon, the
'progressive vote elected four demo
j antic senators.
I Moosers Lose Two Millions.
"I think it is clearly evident what
become o! the progressive vote f
Vi2. The approximate figures showed
a republican gam of J.489..S8S, over the
republican presidential vole of I'MJ.
-The progressive loss was J.507.811.
"In the twenty-three states tamed
by the republicans the republican
plurality over the democratic vote was
,more than 1 .000,000. In I'MJ the Wtl-
; sou vote in the same states was larger
than the Tatt vote by about as much.
'Of the total votes cast by the three
parlies in these states in l'M4, the re
publicans cast 4".n per cent, the demo-
iCtats per cent and the progres
sives 11.5 per cent. In 11J the presi
dential vote was: Republicans. JH.4
per cent; democrats. .10.7 per cent;
progressives, M.) per cent.
Fight for Ten States,
"It is interesting to note the results
i from ten states in which republicans
were not successful in the 1V14 elec
tion, these being representative states
in different sections of the country. In
j the total votes cast in these ten the
1 democrats won bv a plurality of less
than 21X1,000. In 1012 the democratic
plurality in these same states was over
1,000.000. A very small percentage
! republican gain would have put three
of thrse states into the republican col-
titnn, as an increase of a little over
i 5.100 republican votes would have
carried Nebraska, Colorado and Maine
with their twenty votes in the elec
' toral college. Following is the de
railed vote of these states for 1"I4:
1 m
the republicans ate fighting this year:
California, Montana, Nevada, Arizona,
Nebraska, South Dakota, Oregon,
Missouri, Kentucky and Indiana. The
total elector. 1 vote in these ten states
is eighty-seven. '1 he republicans are
pretty sure to carry practically all of
these stales, but if you add only a
third of this vote to tin- JKS Inun the
states earned in 114. it makes the
electoral vote for Mr. Hughes in the
neighborhood of ,i!7. although I think
it will go higher."

Central Union Withdraws En
dorsement from Publication
Making Graft Charges.
The Central Labor union at its bi
monthly meeting last evening passed
a vote of confidence in the officers
charged with grafting at the meeting
two weeks ago. when David Coutts
and William Castteman, publishers of
the Unionist, accused Tom Reynolds,
Jonas Wangberg and C. L. Shamp of
making a profit from the contract for
the Labor day program and other
union activities.
The endorsement of the Central La
bor union was withdrawn from the
Unionist, and a motion passed asking
the two unions sending Coutts and
Castleman to the centra! body to sub
stitute acceptable delegates. Coutts
and Castleman were in the hall and
were bitterly assailed by Wangberg
and Shamp, who dared them to press
the charges they made two weeks
ago, but provoked no response.
A communication from the city
clerk transmitting the reply of Com
missioner Jardi;ie to the complaint of
the labor unionists against the use of
prisoners in contract work was read
and bitterly condemned by the meet
ing. Commissioner Jardine defended
the practice on the grounds that men
confined in the jail for a period of
three months would be so deteriorated
in a physical sense that they would he
unable to do a hard day's work and
would soon be forced hack to jail.
He explained that the prisoners
were not used on competitive work
and that the ".-age scale was $2.2$ per
day, of which the city received $1.25
and the prisoner the remainder. Al
though the men were compelled to do
the work, Commissioner Jardine said
that they welcomed the chance to
earn the money. He promised that if
the labor unions would supply men
to take the places of the prisoners
that they would be withdrawn frum
the work.
The call for the meeting of the
state federation was read and Robert
' Dunlap was elected to represent the
Central Labor union as a delegate
I Fremont on September 12.
Tom Reynolds, the president of the
body announced the members of the
standing committee for the coming

a Sunday closing ordinance that would

barbering on Sunday. The musicians'
i union protested against the action of
