Air. nugnes nas a lead ot over
3,500 votes on the returns early to
day from West Virginia, with only
about 400 districts unreported.
Returns from the doubtful states
were anxiously sought by the cam
paign managers at both democratic
and republican headquarters today.
Both sides claimed the election of
their respective candidate! and it was
evident that plans were being made
to demand recounts and in some cases
to carry the contests into the court.
Numerous conferences were held
I- at both headquarters and there were
unconfirmed reports that Chairman
William R. Willcox of the republican
national committee, after talking over
the -situation with Hughes leaders,
had -advised national committeemen
in certain state to engage counsel
in event the recount proceedings
might be instituted.
j Will Ask Recounts.
It was commonly reported that re
count proceedings will, be instituted
in all doubtful states. Chairman
Vance McCormick of tht democratic
national committee,, following his or
der to the chairmen in the various
doubtful states to guard the ballot
boxes and protect the count, engaged
special counsel to assist the national
committee in any legal steps it may
desire 10 unaeriaxe. ynairman Mc
Cormick did not make any charges
of fraud, but said he desired to be in
a position to take .any legal action
, mat mignt De necessary, yuo war
ranto proceedings lookini to a re.
count in New, .Hampshire are already
under way. ;
Chairman Willcox declared himself
conhdent that Mr. Hughes had been
elected. "We onlv ask what is fair."
Mr. Willcox, "and we only want
wnat we are entitled to. 1 hat we pro
pose to have."

"So far as the claims of the Wilson
followers go," Mr. Willcox said, "they

- Oregon Safe for Hughes.
Charles B. "Warren, republican na
tional committeeman from Michigan,
after a conference with Chairman
Willcox and other national commit
teemen, gave out thia atatement as re
flecting the concensus of opinion
among the republican leaders:
"The election depends upon the
count in California, Minnesota, North
Dakota, New Mexico and New Hamp
shire. Oregon is. safely for Huarhea.
as is also West Virginia. , The proba
bilities are that the Minnesota vote
will be cast for Hughea, but the offi

OFFICIAL COUNT TO
Republican National Commit

Is a Tie.
SPLIT IN ELECTORAL VOTE
(Ceo tinned from Pse One.)
Roumanian General Dies,
London. Nov. 1. The death of Oaneeal
Draaallna, commander of the flrat Rouman
ian army, from a recent wound received in
battle la reported In a Buohareat dlanateh
to the wlreleas press.
tween President Wilson and Charles
E. Hughes in California.it was pre
dicted this afternoon by Secretary of
State Frank C. Jordan, that there is
likely to be a split in the electoral
vote of the two parties.
Jordan said he was so sure that
some of both the republican and
democratic electors will be chosen
that he has already decided to ask
both parties to delegate represents
fives to be present when the official
count is made.
The coun.t will probably start about
inursday alter the senu-otlicial
count of votes has been made by the
county boards ot supervisors.
Jordan says there is no-provision of
law providing lor a recount where
the election for presidential electors
is close, congress relying upon the
certification of the state's chief execu
tive after the count has been made
by the secretary of state. ,
In 1912 two democratic electors
were chosen in California along with
republicans Griffin, democrat, win
ning over J. W. Finney, republican
and Del Valle, democrat, beating M.
A. Luce, republican.
There are several other cases in
the history of California, where presi
dential electors have been so close as
to aplit the electoral, vote says Jor
dan. This occurred in 1880, 1892 and
also in 1890.
San Francisco. Cat..1 Nov. 9. lohn
W. Preston, United States district at
torney, received orders todav from
Washington to be prepared to handle
any election fraud cases in California
which might be brought to his at
tention. No complaints had been
made to him today.

cincts out of 5.870 srive: Huehea.
458,154; Wilson, 460,075.
This was a jump of more than
1,000 for Wilson, most of which came
from Siskiyou, a mountain county
scarcely represented iin previous returns.
San Francisco, Nov. 9. Five thou
sand five hundred and thirty-one pre
cincts out of 5,870 in California give
Hughes 450,561; Wilson, 453,123. Wil
son's plurality, 2,522.
This drop of about 500 votes from
the last previous tabulation was occa
sioned by the rectification of the
Alameda (Oakland) county vote, the
county clerk announcing a correction
in Hughes' favor of 492 votes.
At thia time but nine precincts
were yet to be heard from in Los
Angeles county, Hughes' greatest
stronghold, while more than 200 pre
cincts in northern, expected mostly
to give Wilson pluralities, were yet
to report. These northern precincts
are in isolated mountain counties and
all may not be available before to
Possibility of a split electoral vote
is not at all remote in California and
especially is it made likely thia elec
tion because of scratching of A. T
Wallace, republican presidential elec
tor uy me radical wets, because Wal
lace is one of the foremost drvs.
For instance, should Hughes carry
California there is a possibility of Wil
son taking one vote from the state
to the electoral college.
In California presidential electors
are voted in party groupa, each hav
ing thirteen. When tne ballots are can
vassed the thirteen presidential elec
tors receiving the highest totals are
declared elected and ate certified by
the secretary of atate.
The voter may cast his ballot for
any party group as a whole or he may
vote tor electors in all the parties so
long as he does not vote for more
