Managers for Seattle Man
Claim Moat Votes
[Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.]
Olympia, Jan. 1ft? The first ballot
for United States senator will take
place at noon tomorrow when the legis
lature will meet in joint session in the
hall of the house of representatives.
The managers of S. H. Piles, the Seat*
tie candidate, claim a plurality of the
votes on the first ballot, though they
admit they will have many short of a '
majority. The estimate is as follows:
S. H. Piles, 35; Charles Sweeney, 25;
Senator Foster, 15; John L. Wilson, 15,
and a few votes scattering. There are
13b votes in the joint ballot and 69 are
necessary to a choice.
This estimate leaves fully 30 votes
who have not been lined up with any
candidate up to date.
There are only eight democrats in
the two houses. They will probably
vote for Ex-Senator George Turner.
