Joe has gone up to Jualiu, where he will ?orgauize a branch, but Douglas may expect him back ut any time. Wickersham Leads The delegate election in Douglas yes terday was remarkable for the small vote cast. Only 167 voters exercised j their right of franchise. Hundreds I staid away from the polls, apparently indifferent as to the outcome, lu the first district 115 votes were cast, and 52 in the second. Returns from other localities indi cate a light vote, but also a good lead for James Wickersham, the present delegate. Jennings democrats have aboutgiven up and the contest has settled down to two candidates, Wickersham and Gil more, with the formor in the lead. Many have expressed surprise at the vote given Krauozunas, the sooialist candidate. Nome is the hope of the Gilmore re publicans and returns are dependent on the wireless. As far as we have been able to learn at the time of goiog to press the vote stauds as grven below. It will probably be almost a week before some of the j outlyiug precincts can be heard from. ^ ^ c w ^ | D B S a S = ? g 2 T> ^ ? -C cr ? o : CD ? . OS 3 ? ~ !
