THE ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
VOL. 1, NO. 4. JUNEAU, ALASKA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER ?, 1912. PRICE 10 CENT8. GOV. WILSON THE NEXT PRESIDENT JUNEAU POLLS BIG VOTE NON-PARTISANS WINNERS The local election passed off quietly despite the intense interest it held for the adherents of the two leading tickets. Kour hundred voters had been the approximate estimate for the Juneau precinct, but this was exceeded by fifty at the time the polls closed. There was little scratching as the totals show. While is was strenuous ly claimed by the non-partisan work ers that their ticket would win out both in the town of Juneau and the division, there were macy who while conceding Juneau to the non-parti sans. believed that the progressive ticket would carry enough outside precincts to elect at least a part of the ticket. The first fifteen ballots counted in Juneau, were five for each of the three tickets in the field. As the counting progressed the Socialists dropped behind until they were hope lessly out of it The race then was nip and tuck between the two lead ing tickets until the count was well advanced when it could be seen that the non-partisan ticket would have a handsome plurality in the town. The progressive adherents were en couraged by the vote from Silvor Bow basin which gave Valentine 25 and Tanner 7. both of whom lead their tickest in that precinct. Salmon Creek gave tne progressive ticket 8. the Socialists 2 and the non- i partisan 1. But reports from Doug-1 las. Tread well. Sitka. Haines and Skagway showed great majorities for the non-partisan ticket and the little ray of sunshine was further obscured by the result of the final count in Ju neau which is as follows? For the senate ? non-partisan Tripp 206, Tanner 206: Progressive: Valentine 188. La Fevre 159: Social ist: Bland 63, Swanson 57. For representatives ? non-partisan j Shoup 164.
