LOOKS
GOOD FOR
BUNNELL
The Juneau election Is passing off
quietly, and the indications are that
a good vote will ho polled. At 3 p. m.
587 votes had been cast, 355 in pre
cinct No. 2, the residence precinct, and
232 In tho down town precinct Fifty
votes had been cast in Gold Creole
precinct, just outside of the city lim
its. The election has been quiet
The Bunnell workers at the polls
predict the Democratic nominee will
carry Juneau by a comfortable plural
ity.
The women vote will play an import
ant part in tho contest They?are
voting strongly In tho residence pre
cinct but only 12 of them had voted
down town up to 3 o'clock.
Both Bunnell and Wlckersham work
ers are in evidence at the voting plac
es in the two precincts, and there aro
also suportors of both tho Democrat
ic and Non-Partisan legislative tick
ets. All are working hard.
The saloons cloacd this morning
and will not open untL after the polls
aro closed.
_ The polls opened promptly at pre
cinct No. 2? with the following elec
tion board -in charge. Judges?J. T.
Martin. Allen Shattuck, I. Soworby;
Clerks?A. A. Gabbs, H. I. Lucas. Tho
first vote was cast by Sam William
son, followed bv John J. "Clarke, R.
L. Carlisle, L. E. Van Winkle, M. E.
Russell, in order.
la precinct No. 1, some little delay
was occasioned in opening-the polls
on account of the failure of two mem
bers of the election board to be pres
ent and qualify. However, others wero
chosen from those present to fill out
the vacancies and the polls opened
with the following board In charge:
Judges A. 3. Baily, Sam Kohn Charles
Helsing; Clerks?Isa Goldstein, Frank
Harvey. The first vote vast was by
William Rugg, followed by Max En
dleman, John Welch and James Kelly
In the order named.
Up to noon there were 103 votes
cast in precinct No. 1; 1S1 in No. 2,
and 33 in Gold creek. It is variously
estimated that theso three precincts
will cast from 800 to 1200 votes. The
voting has not been very fast. Indi
cations are that tho morning voto in
precinct No. 1 will bo about equally
divided on the Delegate to Congress
between Bunno II and Wlckersham
with the Democratic legislative ticket
having a slight lead. Precinct No. 2,
so far as lndivations go, voted over
whelmingly for Bunnell In the morn
ing vote, conservative estimates plac
ing it at 3 to 1 in favor of the Demo
cratic candidate. The legislative tick
et may show greater strength for the
Non-Partisans than for Wlckersham,
although ^there seemed to bo little
scratching done. The Gold creek pre
cinct morning vote is belioved to be
over two-thirds for Bunnell. This pre
cinct will have about 125 votes.
