EACH CLAIMS THE VICTORY Hot Contest Waged in Xwo Con gressional Districts. FIRST AND SECOND IN DOUBT Figrures on the Governorship May Be Very Close?Election to Occur Tomorrow. PORTLAND, Me.,. September 1<V-A large question mark symbolizes the polit ical situation in Maine at the close of the state campaign tonight. For weeks both the republican party, which is in IM??ler, and th? democratic party have cn eaged in efforts to arouse the state, and the final rallies were held tonight with l>otli sides expressing confidence that suc vess will rest with them when the ballots are counted Monday night. The rival candidates are the present governor, Hert E. Fernald of Poland, leading the republicans, and Frederick W. Plaisted, mayor of Augusta, heading the democratic ticket. Besides choosing be tween these heads of the tickets Monday, the voters of the state also will elect state auditor, four representatives in Congress, county officers and a legislature, which will name a successor to 1'nlted States Senator Eugene Hale. Two Districts Doubtful. While the contest for governor is first in interest, it has no great margin over that for Congress in two of the districts. For the first time in years republican leaders have been called upon to fight stiffly in the first and second districts, which gave Reed and I>lngley over whelming majorities election after elec tion. In the first district Asher C. Hinds of Portland, who has eat behind the Speak er in half a dozen Congresses as a par liamentarian. is battling against William Pennell of Brunswick, a former sheriff of Cumberland -county. In the second dis trict Representative John C.'Swazyofi Canton is. fighting for a second term against Daniel P. McOillicuddy of Lewis ton. Both sides claim to have made a win ning fight, but close political observers believe that Swazy's success is more doubtful than that of Hinds. The democrats practically concede the return of Representative Edwin C. Bur leigh in the third district, and Frank E. Guernsey in the fourth. Contest on State Issues. The fight between Fernald and Plais ted has been made primarily on state issues. Gov. Fernald won two years ago by T,tM plurality over Obediab both sides, the priacifuU omm fcavistr ' teen Alton B. Parker. JarnMr candidate fory President on "the democratic side, and Representatives Prince of Illinois and McKinlay of California, in behalf of the republicans.
