Socialist Vote Increases 100 Par Cent
In Four Years.
New York, Nov. 11. The Boc'allst
rote In tho United States at the late
election was nearly 100 per cent
greater than the vote cast for that
party's candidates In tbo presidential
doctrine seems to have been confined
, to no particular bectlon, nearly every
State showing an unusual Increase.
Many Socialist leaders declare that
a still greater showing would have
been made bad Colonel Roosevelt not
inaugurated the Hull Moose move
ment, which attracted many voters.
I It Is believed that when all the re-
tarns have been canvassed It will" be
found that a score or more Socialists
I throughout the country will have been
elected to state legislatures.
From the far south comes the story
that In Mississippi Debs received a
