The polls were opened everywhere
promptly at 7 oclock and during the I
i early hours voting was very brisk followed
I
lowed ty lulls just before noon and
I
later In the afternoon with rushes dur
ing the noon hour and about 6 p m I
The Australian ballot system tried for
the first time here worked perfectly
e The voters seemed to appreciate greatly
i the reef from the heelers and ticket
peddles and the general familiarity I
t with the system was little less than
f remarkable considering the circum
stances It showed that the voters
1 generally had given the new plan con
siderable study and very few had to
eoll ujpon the election officers for as
B sistance in preparing their ballots not
I withstanding the fact that scratching
r was indulged in to an extent never ha
t fore heard of here
i Challenges were few and far between
In a great many precincts not a single
vote was disputed There was no loud
talk about the polls and no conflicts
The people went about their business i
quietly and in only one instance was I
there a genuine election row Strange I
ly enough that was between two wo I
rn in the old Second municipal ward I
The Democrats found themselves
I
severely handicapped in this city from
the outset The Republican committee
had secured every conveyance in town I
that they could hire and Democrats
were unable to bring their voters to the
polls in carriages They did not need
any such inducement to get them to
vute however and turned out grandly
As an evidence of this it may be stated
that in precinct 7 every registered
Democrat voted in precinct 10 all but
three voted in precinct 24 not one was
missed in precinct 39 all but two voted
in precinct 41 every Democrat t except
I one last his ballot for Brian and
Sewall and so it went all over the city
The Republicans with thelr army of
l workers with carriages succeeded in
bringing out a very full vote too and
I it was estimated early in the evening
that 90 per cent of the registered vote
in the city had been polled
The reports of the checkers of both
t parties showed when the polls closed
t that the Democrats would in all prob
I ability have a majority in this coun
I ty on the state and legislative tickets
The Democratic ticket soon got to
work and on unofficial returns Chair
man Lloyd claimed that ten precincts
had given the Democrats 1284 votes
the Independent Republicans 571 Mc
Kinley 153 with 916 scratched ballots
These scratched ballots were practi
cally all in favor of the Democratic
ticket
When the Democrats of Salt Lake
county closed their magnificent cam
paign on Monday night they confi
dently expected that success would
j crown their efforts but no one dreamed
I that the whole Democratic ticket would
be elected bv such a tremendous ma
i jority as the people have given it
IMMENSE GAINS
The first unofficial returns indicated
immense gains and as the definite fig
I ures commenced to come in a still
I
greater increase was shown
REPUBLICANS SURRENDER
At midnight Chairman Lloyd claimed
the election of the county and legis
lative ticket by from 1500 to 2000 ma
I jority for each candidate while Chair
man Holmes at the same hour con
C ceded that the Republicans had lost
i all along the line
ij i NOTHING SAVED FROM THE
WRECK
jl Some few still hoped that personal
popularity might pull one or two Re
publicans through but their hopes
were speedily dissipated The hand
of Geddes disappeared forever from
i official life under an avalanche of
fl I I votes while Spencer and Crismon went
j down In the general wreck The voters
It I seemed to be inspired with making a
II 1 clean sweep and they cast no anchors
to the windward Holbrook after all
the eloquence that has been expended
In his behalf in Salt Lake county and
r for whom a special effort was made
J made a surprisingly weak showing
while King came up magnificently
everywhere
Norrell and Cherry the Democratic
candidates for district judges received
immense majorities which will be aug
i mented by the votes of the other coun
r ties Summit and Tooele comprising
i it the Third district
First Municipal IVanl
In the First municipal ward the vot
I ing was much as had been anticipated
rt 1 by the Democrats The ladies turned
i out in great numbers in all the precincts
i
cincts in this ward and in one precinct
J cast fully twothirds of the total vote
I The election was very quiet at all the
V precincts there being no disturbances
I t of any character at any of the voting
places At nearly all the precinct vot
1 ing places the Republicans had head
quarters established as near the polls
as they dared to get and had their
heelers on hand to approach every I
voter The voters however were not I
to be turned from their intention of
giving Bryan and free silver their sup
port and the ward went almost solidly
for the silver electors The Demo
cratic state and county tickets also re
ceived a good support and showed a
very large gain over the vote of the
t last election Scratching very gen
eral especially among the ladies Ow
ing to the inclemency of the weather
FF and the muddy streets the vote was not
as heavy as had been anticipated by
either of the political committees In
the Sixth precinct In this ward there
were 324 votes cast out of a registration
of 352 in the Seventh precinct the vote
was 334 out of a registration of 412 in
the Eighth it was 369 votes out of a
registration of 436 The other precincts
fa averaged aboul as those mentioned
above Some difficulty was experienced
by the ladies in making out their tick
ets but not much delay was occasioned
e
r
I
except in one or two places On an
average about three voters at each
precinct were prevented frdm voting
by reason of being 4 challenged At
some of the voting places the Repub
lican challengers caused considerable
delay by challenging every Democrat
who offered to vote
Second Municipal Waril
Voting in the Second was very quietly
done and considering the weather and
extremely muddy roads on the west
side the percentage of votes cast was
all that could have been expected
There was a lack of vehicles for vot
ers on both sides and many women
who otherwise would have turned out
remained at home
Very few ballots were spoiled and
generally the voters acted as though
they understood the modus operand
It was noticed that the women voted
early and were at the polls long before I
the men The ladies indulged in j
scratching a great deal more than the I
men In the judgment of the judges
So far as learned there were no dis
turbances at any of the polling places
I At 6 oclock about 3850 votes had been
polled
Condie displayed all the activity I
shown by any candidate in the Second
hustling for himself from early morn I
until the polls closed Visits by other I
candidates were rare
I
McKinley voters were as rare as
I
days in June and wherever one was
found he voted and said nothing going I
away as soon as this task was fin
ished I
Third Municipal Ward
The voting at all the precincts in j
the Third ward was conducted in a i
very quiet and orderly manner There j
were very few people about Jthepolling
places besides the election officials The i
I
voters dropped in slowly but steadily
recorded their votes and went away I
and there was no rush at any time i
The ladies turned out in force equal or
superior to the men As a rule the
Democrats voted the straight ticket
while the Republicans did a heap of I
scratching The McKinley Republicans j I
voted the Democratic county ticket al j I
most straight and it was evident be j
fore 12 oclock that the Democrats were
going to carry the ward by a handsome I
majority j
Refreshments coffee sandwiches
etc were served at a number of the I
polling places The Republicans wore i

long faces which kept lengthening as
the afternoon wore along and the Dem
ocratic ballots were snowing them un
der deeper and deeper till the polls
closed The vote was heavy through
out the ward
At noon precinct 27 had cast 130
votes out of a registration of 324 pre
cinct 28 127 out of 290 precinct 29 114
out of a possible 304 precinct 30 130
out of 338 precinct 31 165 out of 341
In the Thirtysecond Thirtythird
and Thirtyfourth precincts the poll
ing was conducted with the utmost
harmony and not an incident worthy
of mention transpired The voters be
gan coming early and by noon more
than half the registered vote was in in
all three of the precincts and it 5
oclock in the evening the averagt vote
remaining to be polled was less than
onetwelfth of the registration There
was no excitement in any of these pre
cincts at any time but considerable
amusement was created by a dodger
which Candidate Geddes caused to be i
distributed It was the Argus edi I
torial lauding him for alleged philan
thropy I
In the Thirtysixth there was a little I
difficulty but it was of a mild nature
It began when the Democratic judge
failed to show up on time and the two
Republicans swore in another man Be
fore he had fairly seated himself how
ever the regularly appointed man came
in and Democratic Chairman Ridd
thought he ought to be allowed to
serve The Republicans objected but
their man resigned and they were of
necessity obliged to make the best of it I
The next disturbance occurred when
George Bolt undertook to vote He had
only lived in the precinct 30 days and
was challenged by Mr Ridd who
stated the circumstances of Mr Bolt
being registered in the precinct They
were to this effect Bolt was raised in
the Thirtyfourth precinct and always
lived there until recently when he
moved to the Thirtyfifth Prior to
the rendering of County Attorney
Whittemores opinion that transfers
from one precinct to another were not
legal Bolt had registered in the Thirty
fourth and wishing to move procured
a transfer to the Thirtyfifth On the
strength of this he was permitted to
swear in his vote His name was re
ported and it is understood steps to
prosecute him will be commenced to
day j
dayAnother
Another incident of the day was an
effort on the part of Josiah Lees to do
some work for his favorite candidate
Geddes He would follow or accom
pany rather a voter almost to the
booths urging him or her to vote his
way Chairman Ridd objected but it
made no difference until he sent to the
sheriffs office for a deputy who al
lowed no buttonholing for the rest of
the day
At 6 pm in precinct 27 150 Demo
cratic and 123 Republican votes were
cast precinct 28 140 Democratic and
L10 Republican votes precinct 29 183
Democratic and 75 Republican pre
cinct 30 170 Democratic and 97 Repub

Fourth Municipal Ward
A hard contest was waged in the i
Fourth yesterday but the banner
Democratic ward maintained its old
time position and gave a goodsized
majority against the high tariff party
Almost the full vote of both parties
was polled and although the Republic =
ans did not expect to carry the ward
f
w
I they worked as hard as if confident of
success
I Carriages were out early and by
noon over a third of the total registered
vote had been cast There were no
contests of note and no enthusiasm was
I displayed The absence of any dem
onstration was owing to the fact that
the result in the Fourth was a fore
gone conclusion
I The tents where the precinct party
managers held forth and issued esti
mates on the result were the scenes of
I the greatest animation Hot coffee and
other things gastronomically tempting
f were served there through the entire
day Very few challenges were made
I and the day was unenlivened by any
of the usual polling place rows
I In the Thirtyseventh precinct the
i I day was particularly quiet By noun
167 votes out of the registered total of
350 had been cast and at 6 oclock the
1 total vote was 33L Of these the Re
publicans claimed 141 and the Demo
crats 180
The people of the Thirtyeighth pre i
cinct at 6 oclock last evening had cast
II
256 votes the registered total being
282 At noon 166 votes were in of
which the Democrats claimed 100 This
precinct was the scene of one of the
hardest partisan fights of the day and
an hour before the polls closed both
sides admitted that the result was
doubtful The Democrats however
conceded 127 to the Republicans and
claimed 129 I
The Thirtyninth and Fortieth were
two of the busiest precincts The vote 1
hustlers were out early and before
noon nearly half of the total registered
vote had been deposited in the boxes i
There were 361 votes registered in the I i
Fortyfirst precinct It is a Democratic
precinct and by noon 149 votes or over
40 per cent of the total number had
been cast It was estimated that SO
of the ballots deposited in the box were
straight Democratic 56 Republican and
3 doubtful At 6 oclock 322 votes 90
per cent of the number registered had
been cast Of this number it is esti I
mated that 191 were straight Demo I I
cratic and 131 Republican tickets The >
polling place was at 215 K street and i
the Democratic work of the day was
intrusted to Mrs Dr Ferguson Mrs
Barton and T F Thomas Mrs Fer
guson and Mrs Barton assisted by I
Mrs Mulholland furnished an excel i
lent lunch at the latters residence for I
the Democrats There was not a ripple I
of excitement during the entire day I
The polling place of the Fortysecond
precinct was at 33 3 < street There
were 401 votes registered and at noon
141 votes had been cast Of this num
ber 90 were Republican and 48 Demo
cratic At 6 oclock 363 votes had been
cast of which number 192 were Re
publican and 171 Democratic The
Democrats were badly handicapped in
this precinct by a lack of conveyances
I and workers The only excitement dur
ing the day was the challenging of two
I Democratic and one Republican vote
One was challenged on the ground of
nonnaturalization and the others on
alleged change of residence They were
all sworn in Mrs Ann Oliva Burt and
Mrs Ann Erskine were in charge of
the Democratic refreshment tent
In Precinct Fortythree the polling
place was Taggarts hall 876 First
street The election in this precinct
I was intensely uneventful At no time
during the day was the polling place
crowded At noon out of a registration
of 361 voters 135 had been cast 80 be
ing Republican and 55 Democratic At
6 oclock 281 votes had been cast the
Republicans receiving 181 and Demo
crats 100 It is a Republican precinct
and the result was not unexpected
I i
Fifth Municipal Ward
In the Fifth municipal ward which
I
has always been a Republican strong
hold both sides settled down to hard
but quiet work The Democrats
brought out nearly their entire
strength while the Republicans aided
by their numerous candidates who re
side in the ward made a supreme effort
and voters were run down with great
energy Everything passed off quietly
however
In the Fifth the ladies of both par i
I ties turned out in force and like the
men did a great deal of scratching
