• small iii;i: trill in the city |in
cincts, while Hodge is coming
well to tlie front by the country
vote, the fight for the governor
ship of Washington in Pierce
county is yet in douht. Hay, the
Btandpat candidate, is hopelessly
beaten here.
County Auditor Stewart has
just posted a bulletin stating the
progressive party has made a
cli'iin'itweep of the county, the en
tire proKi^Mvi' ticket Ih-lii«
chosen.
Progressives are assured of 10
representatives and three sena
tors in the state legislature. Dr.
N. Jolldon Croake, the woman
candidate for state representative
from the 37th district on the pro
gressive ticket, won by a large
majority.
Jimmy Davis, Harry Phelps,
Arvid Rydstrom, T. J. Bell, Jim
McNeely and the rest of the old
standpat legislature will be left
at home.
Indications are that all the
constitutional amendments have
carried in the county, those on
the initiative, referendum and re
call having polled particularly
strong.
The port district, It !s believed,
has been defeated. With 18 pre
cincts counted there were 1,004
against the proposition as against
704 in its favor.
Thirty-four Tacoma and Pierce
county precincts out of a total of
148 give Lister 2,007; Hodge,
1,819; Hay, 1,030. Most of these
are city precincts where Lister
was the conceded strongest can
didate. Hodge, however, is
■growing in favoritism In the coun
try districts.
In 39 city and country pre
cincts Roosevelt polled almost
three times the number of Wil
son's votes. The count of these
precincts shows Roosevelt with
3,133; Wilson, 1,613; Taft, 1,428.
WOMAX SUFFRAGE.
(By United Tress Leased Wise.)
NEW YORK, Nov. 6.—Advo-
cates of woman suffrage were de
lirious with joy today. Four out
of five states carried yesterday
for the amendments striking the
word "Male" out of the state con
stitutions, was considered suffi
cient cause, and it was stated
that Saturday night's parade up
fashionable Fifth avenue, to be
participated In by thousands of
men and women, representing
every state in the Union would be
a record breaker.
In addition It was opposed T>y

SKATTLK, Nov. 6.—Although
(here is no definite or official Ilg
iires to substantiate it, the indi
cations are today that Krnest Lis
ter, democrat, is elected gover
nor by a margin of probably .">,
iMIO votes, with Hodge and Hay
fighting nock and neck for sec
ond m1;i« i-
The returns, official and unof
licial, thus far counted, however,
are so meager that no positive
prediction can be made. Keturns
from the country districts and
tram Kastern Washington may
change the apparent outcome.
The result was still in doubt
at noon with the three candidates
running neck and neck. Late re
turns, however, show that Hodge
is gaining over Lister, and Hay
is apparently dropping well into
third place. Lister has a small
lead on the face of returns al
ready in.
The majority of the state pro
gressive ticket is probably elect
ed, and the progressive ticket Jn
this county has won.
The democrats generally voted
their ticket Btraight and all can
didates of the party are running
close to Lister.
Forty-five complete precincts of
King county give Lister 1,698,
Hay 1,460, Hodge 1,203.
On the other hand, Hodge has
apparently carried Snohomlsn,
Kitsap and Thurston counties.
The lead gained in the county
may make him a contender with
Lister for first place.
Indications point to a sweeping
victory of Congressman Warbur
ton over Albert Johnson and
Munday. Warliurton leads in all
Pierce county precincts, and with
the vote that is yet to be heard
from in the southwest, which is
strong for Warburtou, it looks
like a sure Warburton victory.

no city. The total vote: Wilson

Incomplete returns from the

jority in the city will be annulled
and that Roosevelt will carry the
county by a very small majority,
probably less than 200.
tottered across the white canvas,
the crowd below let out many a
lusty cheer.
News pictures of the Balkan
war and a series of photographs
of Colonel Rosevelt taken on the
occasion of his last visit to Taco
ma were thrown on the screen
from time to time to relieve the
monotony of the election fig
urea.
The Times easily scored over
all contemporaries by Issuing
fourteen extra editions (each one
a complete and accurate unit)
last night, and two editions, one
at six and another at eight o'clock
this morning, augmented this
service, which was easily the most
satisfactory ever given in an elec

SHARK TOLMAN DEMANDS
200 PER CENT. INTEREST
. Not being particularly anxious
to attract further attention to
their methods of doing business,
the loan sharks are quietly send
ing their agents alxiut the city
in tin attempt to "fix" cases where
they bare been nuilty of charg
ing usurious rates of interest.
In some cases a receipt in full
has betil handed to men who a
fortnight ago were called "de
linquents" by the loan sharks
and against whopi all sorts of
dire punishment was threatened
if a comfortable buncu of money
for fake interest charges were
not forthcoming.
Many victims of the loan sharks
continue to come to the Times
office, and in each and every In
stance the rates charged are
usurious and in violation of the
law.

SOCIALISTS
MAKE GAIN
(By United Press !..■«-. ,1 Wire.)
CHICAGO, Nov. 6.—Based up
on Incomplete returns available at
noon today, J. M. Barnes, nation
al campaign manager for the so
cialist party, estimated the total
vote for the national ticket was
800,000. Four years ago the so
cialists polled 424,000.
"Our largest gains," said
Barnes, "was in Ohio, President
Taft'B state, with the exception
of the showing made in Chicago
in the local fight for the state's
attorney's office, in which Cunea
ran a close second to the demo
cratic candidate.
"We are assured today that J.
Stltt Wilson, socialist candidate
for congress in California, had a
good chance of election, although
definite information was uot to
be had.
"Our reports show that we
made big gains In several state
legislatures, although we are
making no extravagant claims un
til we have the actual results."

NEW YORK, Nov. C.—Realiza
tion of just how great a victory
they had won, came to the dem
ocratic hosts of the nation to
day. Last night they had sensed
victory and rejoiced, but today
the scope of what it meant was
dawning on the laeders and every
one of the party chieftains was
solemn in the face of the respon
sibilities the?" w'!l -nrtw be re
quired to shoulder. , _ .■ -
Wilson and Marshall bad car

Union. In the others they had
run second and gome of them
were recorded against democracy
liy comparatively narrow mar
gins. In Pennsylvania and Mich
igan the vote was very close, and
these two states represented a to
tal of 53 votes in the electoral
college.
Wilson goos Into power with a
combined democratic senate and
house behind him. This means
that he will be able to enact
whatever legislation he and tne
party chieftains believe necessary.
Wilson is expected to assume
the leadership of his party In both
houses of congress Immediately.
He is on record as declaring that
he believes when the American
people commission a president to
follow out a certain line of action
they expect him to make good.
And those who know Wilson best
expect him to make specific
recommendations to congress and
then if that body doesn't act. to
go directly to the people for need
ed support to put tthrough the
suggested plans.
It was this fact that caused the
democratic leaders to take stock
today. The returns from the
various states were analyzed and
their meaning sensed. The Wil
son landslide had been great
enough to carry Into office demo
cratic, state tickets in many states.
Even where Wilson had failed to
get through, the swing had gone
on, and Michigan and Illinois,
carried by Roosevelt, elected dem
ocratic governors.
