Then, as if sobered by the realization

CHICAGO FUSION TICKET
WINS BY BIG PLURALITY
Judges Chosen by Approximately
75,000 Out of Total Vote
CHICAGO, November 7.? Democrats
and republicans in Chicago and Cook
county today expressed gratification at
the results of the judicial election yes
terday, in which a fusion ticket, carry
ing: seven candidates from each of these
parties, was swept into office over so
cialist and independent tickets by a
plurality of approximately 75,000. out of
a total vote of 244,913. The election was
held to choose twelve judges of the su

Fusion leaders for several weeks con
ducted an aggressive campaign, in
which they charged the socialists with
appealing for votes on an anti-Ameri
can and anti-war platform. Evidence
of interest in the election is seen In the
large vote, which broke all off-year rec
ords in Chicago. Last year, when judges
were chosen, the city of Chicago polled
only 171,000 votes, compared to 215,656

In the contest for superior court
judges, Seymour Stedman polled the
largest socialist vote, receiving 72,117.
M. Li. McKinley led the fusionists with
a total of 140,074. The socialists car
ried six out of the thirty-five wards in
Chicago. In several districts heavily
populated by persons of German birth
the vote was overwhelmingly for the
bi-partisan candidates, and in other
German-American sections the social
ists received a plurality. There appear
ed to be no well defined districts of the
city with a predominance of socialist
votes, the six wards carried by that
party being separated and having as
neighbors wards that rolled up large
pluralities for the fusionists.
The socialist vote fell ofT from that of
last year. The vote for W. A. Cunnea,
socialist candidate for judge of the circuit
court, yesterday was 72,692 in the city of
Chicago. Twice before, in 1$12 and 1916,
when a candidate for state's attorney, he
polled a vote in excess of 100,000, five
years ago his total being 106,327 in the
