Wurlmrton will have to gaiu 1000

votes to a precinct over Johnson.
This Is a pretty big Job, but he
will either have lo do it or else

the Southwest or Johnson will win
out.
Southwestern Washington is
also pulling Hay up in great shape
and if Lister is beaten it will be
by this vote.
In Pierce with 131 precincts
counted Lister has 9402, Hay
5766 and Hodge 7923.
This gives Lister 3686 over Hay
with 17 precincts yet to hear

Teats is running ahead in the
county and he has in 131 pre
cincts 10,055 to 6981 for Hart, a
plurality for Teats of 317 4 in the
county. Southwestern Washing
ton is also playing tricks with
Teats and no one appears to be
safe until that standpat strong
hold is through counting. Collier

Ed Meath is going to be helped
by the southwest. Meath in 138

WOMEN TO VOTE
IN MICHIGAN
DETROIT, Mich., Nov. 7. —In-
complete returns this afternoon
from 50 of the S3 counties in
Michigan, give a plurality for the
women suffrage amendment of
41,088. Both the democrats and
republicans claim control of the
legislature, which will elect a
successor to Senator William Al
dem Smith.

RENO, Nev., Nov. 7.—The offi

States senatorial fight between
Key Pittman, democrat, and Judge
A. W. Massey, republican, to suc
ceed the late Senator Nixon.
Figures compiled up to noon to
day showed Pittman leading by
less than 100 votes.
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7. —
With returns from many of the
northern California counties still
cut off by storm, indications are
today based on reports already
received are that Woodrow Wilson
has captured the state for the
democrats by a majority over
Roosevelt of about 5000 votes.

WILSON'S
VICTORY
COMPLETE
(By Vnited Tress leased Wire.l
CHICAGO, Nov. 7.—With only
000 precincts missing Wilsons
plurality in Illinois today is cx
aclty 1,500. The democrats claim
they will carry the state by at
least 10.000.
XBW YORK, Nov. 7.—Presi
dent-elect Woodrow Wilson will
have at least 4!»0 electoral votes.
Wyoming's three votes probably
will be added to this total but an
official count will be necessary to
determine which candidate has
carried that state. Wilson's elec
toral vote is unprecedented in the
history of the country. Colonel
Theodore Roosevelt will be sec
ond with Pennsylvania, South Da
kota, Minnesota and Washington
—a total of 77 electoral votes.
President Taft has won Idaho,
I iih and Vermont, with a slim
chance of winning out in Wyom
ing.
Colonel Roosevelt has lost Illin
ois and Kansas, but has gained
Minnesota, through the support
of the farmers. The switch to
the Wilson column of Illinois and
Kansas was unexpected, and botn
due to the heavy support Wilson
received in the rural districts.
Wilson is not believed to have
received a majority of the popu
lar vote, but his plurality will
exceed 2,500,000. The exact fig
ures will not be available Tor
some time owing to the slowness
of the returns.
Although the socialist party
lost their only member in con
gress—Victor Lh Berger of Wis
consin—they gained in popular
vote and elected three members
of the Illinois legislature. Owing
to the peculiar situation in Illin
ois, the socialists and progres
sives hold the balance of power
in the state legislature. The so
cialist leaders claim they polled
800,000 votes in the national
election.
One effect of the progressive
loss in Kansas is that Governor
W. It. Stubbs is defeated for the
senate. Colonel Roosevelt, ap
parently, ran second in many or
the important states, giving the
progressives control of the elec
tion machinery as the second
party, which is important to or
ganization work.
Wilson has captured 39 states,
and may yet add Wyoming to this
list.
Democratic, national headquar
ters here is elated over the out
come, but somewhat chagrined at
losing Minnesota. In the closing
days of the campaign the demo
cratic national committee want
ed to help out in Minnesota, but
the state committee said this was
not necessary.

STILL IN DOUBT
(By United Press Leased Wire.)
PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 7. —
The fate of woman's suffrage In
the state is still very much In
doubt, although indications are
that it will carry by probably less
than 1,000.
The earliest reports to the et
fect that Portland voted down the
measure heavily, while the rest
of the state was maintaining It
by a slight margin of votes still
seem to hold.
LOAN SHARK
DISGORGES
Alarmed at the publicity given
the methods of loan sharks oper
ating their contemptible business
in Tacoma, the employees of the
D. H. Tolman office in the Provi
dent building are making every
effort to "fix" the victims whose
stories might bring a lot of hard
luck upon the D. H. Tolruan en
terprise.
In yesterday's Times was pub
lished the story of a young man,
a clerk, who had borrowed $72;
paid back something over $81 and
from whom the D. H. Tolman
shark outfit was trying to squeeze
the trifling sum of $37 more for
"interest."
After telling his story to the
Times, this young man was ad
vised to go up to see the D. H.
Tolman outfit and demand the
return oT his notes, he having al
ready paid back the principle of
the loan and interest at a higher
rate than the law permits.
The youns man did go back to

Private Jamieson told a Presidio

the D. H. Tolman office and did
demand his note.
The employee in charge tried to
temporize, offering one excuse and
another. The young man de
clared that he would bring suit
and started for the door, when the
employee sullenly called him back
and tossed out his note from a fat
bundle hurriedly taken from the
big office safe.
Incidentally, the D. H. Tolman
employee told the young man that
the Times "was getting altogether
too fresh" and was "hurting Mr.
Tolman's business."
The Times will continue to hurt
Mr. Tolman's business so long as
the Tolman enterprise continues
Its shark methods.

OAKLAND, Cal. —"I stole them

trial of William Jamieson on a
larceny charge. A call sent out
for the jurors resulted In but one

make up his mind.
SAN FRANCISCO—The unan
imity of pro-Wilson sentiment m
this city is shown In the rather
remarkable fact that the demo
cratic presidential candidate car
ried every assembly by a substan
tial majority. The solid Wilson
support is regarded as all the
more remarkable in view of the
fact that eight of the 13 assem
blymen elected are bull jiioosers.
