I^ast night the leader.-, of neither party were able to give ary reason for this. The weath-1 er was propitious and both sides were fairly active in getting out the vote. The shlpvard closed down at 3 o'clock, two hours and seven minute* before the polls closed, so that all of the employes of ttJc plant who were en? titled to a vote had an opportunity to rest their ballots. Almost ever since bis nomination by (he Republican convention here it bad boen predicted that John B. Locke would carry the city and after tbe death of D Q. Egg'eston. the Demo? cratic nominee for secretary mi :h? common s'ealth It was praetiraliv eer tain that he would win here It was. therefore, surprising to no one when tbe complete returns gave htm a plurality of 111 and a majoritv of It. He carried every ward In the city. Stamps Ruled Out. Early In tbe dav the Judges In the Third and Fourth wards ruled out the rtamps bearing tbe names of Col B O. James, the Democratic nominee for secretary of tbe common wealth, and J. C. Wallace, the Demorratir nominee for constable. This probably cut down the rote of ho?n men in those wards, but it prob? ably did not materially alter tbe re suits, as R was practically certain that Locke and Hester wowld carry both wards Tbe fact "that a total of 201 rotes eaa east ' - D Q Eggle*ton for secretary of the commonwealth was ?srprtsing to almost everyone Growing chil ren need just e things that are in Quaker Oats. It is a great strength builder and is digested easily. :ted gonsta e democrat This out down Ool. Jam**' vote In every ward In the city. The halloi probably was one of t%0 moat trounlt-aome ever uaed In an election here and "ome of the voters took fr.ni five to ten minutes to make out their .ballots. The result was that other voteis were kept waiting In line outside of the ropes, as many as fifty being lined up at one time in < lie ward alone. Judge Having Trouble Counting. The judges had great difficulty in counting the ballots after the polls closed and H *a? 1:3? o'clock thin morning Iteforo the lea', ward to cora pafil tue count bad been heard from. The Second ward results were an uounced shortly after 9 o'clock. The Fourth ward was next, the returns coming In at 12:50 o'clock, while the First ward return* were completed at 1:06 o'clock. The Third ward *ae finished at 1:40 o'i lock. Some few of the local candidates and several of ihe leaders of both parti* s remained up to receive the final returns, although the ultimate outcome had been about correctly figured by 10 o'clock last nignt, it beins; conceded at that hour that Ixicke and Hester would carry the city, while Captain Berkeley would win by about IM majority. A heavy downpour of rain thai stttick the city about 7:15 o'clock und continued for more than an hour, sein hundreds of i>eople who were out to receive the election returns scurrying homeward and after the storm passed over only tbe party leaders and b few of tbe close friends of the candidates were gathered aiound the polls. The downpour of rain was accompaiiied by a regular mid summer electrical display. Two Votss on Amendment. Ali hough an amendment to the con? stitution has been advertised for six? ty days as required by law, no re? vision for voting for or against the iinicndtiii tit was made on the ballots ha re. However, two votes were cast on the amendment in the First ward, DM rot SO voting for the tii.iendinent and another against It. The ballots In the various wards showed that some of ifie voters were not "playing any favorites" in the eet et loa. la the Fourth ward, one voter cast a hullot for first a Demo? crat, then a Republican, then an In fj pendent candidate and finally he voted for A. J. Mauser, the Socialist candidate for the house of delegates. Many of the voters spilt between the Republican end Democratic <amii dates. Vote by Wards FIRST WARD.
