I GREAT POLITICAL
I CONTEST WAGING
JoTffi Polls of the Nation .Thronged With Voters After
!j Most Strenuous Campaign Since Election of
jtal Lincoln Early Voting Is Heavy.
If THREE PARTIES PREDICIG SUCCESS
Thirty-three States Are Voting For Governors and
36 Have Senatorial Contests Women Are
Active In Many of the States.
The three-cornered political contest sent to the polls today voters
2 vho took an unprecedented interest in the outcome of a campaign
lhal had been waged "with unusual bitterness. Lid-day reports from
I every quarter indicated a nation-wide record-breaking vbte In
I addition to the election of president and vice president and mem-
- hers of congress, 33 states are voting for governors and 36 for legis-
1 latures which will fill vacancies in the United States senate.
I Generally favorable weather conditions prevailed. In certain I
I sections of the middle west, particularly in southern Illinois, over-1
S H cast skies and threatened rain augured not well fov the polling of1
5 H heavy votes, but electors, notwithstanding, continued their steady
jf march to the polls.
K New York City is easting by far the heaviest vote in its historj.
i as also arc all the other cities of that state. The rural vote in New I
I York likewise is heavy. hi Cincinnati 50 per cent of the total vote I
I had been cast before 11 o'clock and the vote throughout Ohio, while ,
R. slow on account of the size of the ballot and much reported scratch-
Ir ing, was progressing with an unprecedented earnestness.
H In Chicago the 'early hours saw every polling place filled "with
M long lines of voters waiting to get into the booths. Very few voters,
Ur in Chicago availed themselves of the opportunity of using the voting .
H machines, which fact was considered to indicate that there was much
I scratching of ballots by members of all political parlies.
I Jn the Pacific coast states the early voting waj heavy, despite
I inclement weather in Seattle, Portland and northern California
The contest in Vermont was interesting despite the fact that the
VI .state election was held in September and the vote was extremely
heavy. This also was true of Maine, where all three of the leading
2B parties are making a desperate fight to gain the electoral represen-
HH tation.

regular." The crowd laughed and the- gover
nor entered the voting booth, llq

handed hie ballot.
"Woodrow Wilson. Xo. 9 Cleveland
I lane, ballot 11", ' announced one of
the tellers, as he recorded the gov- i
I ernor's vote. '
The gqvernor was in the booth just
four minutes. As he came out he!
spoke of his difficulty in finding tho i
Democratic presidential elector. I
"They aro buried down at the bot

plaintively.
