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.
