"The Times election service was a huge success-it was the first time any thing of the kind was dono and It proved tho ability of a newspaper to bo of real service to the community," said President McGrath of tho Park View Citizens' Association today, "I took tho returns over the telephono myself part of tho tlmo and I was sur prised n tho clearness with which I heard ov.ry word. 1 cannot too heart ily command The Times and In tho name of the citizens of tho Park View section I want to express thunks for the very great public sorvlco that was ren dered."

"Tho people of Petworth are certainly under the greatest obligations to The Times for tho very efficient service given them last night," said President Jesse C.

"Both In behalf of tho Home and School Association. the Citizens' Association, and tho citi zens who are not connected with theso associations, I want to express thanks for what was done, it Is a new Idea, and is very much worth while." The Petworth citizens were a most en thusiastic lot. Their applause could be heard over tho telephone In Tho Times office, although It was not Identified as Petworth enthus'asm at the tlmo. "Everybody i have met in Chovy Chase this morning expresses tho ut most satisfaction with tho election serv ico given tho people last night at the Elizabeth V. Browne School," declared Edward P. Colladay, of tho Chevy Chaso Citizens' Association. "It was a very grtat thing for The Times to do, as It gave a real public service to the people. I want to congratulate Tho Times, and thank It In the name of our people." Hundreds Gathered. At Chevy Chase several hundred of the citizens took advantage of Tho Times service to gather at tho school to hear the returns. A number of others kept in communication with the scfiool and learned how the returns were com ing In. "I kept In touch with the service dur ing the evening, and I think It was slm Fly great," said Electrical Engineer ladley this morning. "Tho Times Is to do congratulated." Electrical Engineer Hadley was tho "man behind the guns" In Th Times service, as a matter of fac. It was through his active co-oporatlon and that of Superintendent Simpson, of tho District electrical department, that It was posslhlo to arrange tho "tandem" of tlephoncs on tho District switchboard through which the returns were read to the civic centers.

CAPITAL IS ON EDGE UTi KNIFING FOR FINAL RESULTS K9L Hotel Lobbies Here Packed With Folk Waiting for Com plete Election Returns. All Washington Is waiting breathless ly this morning for final news of the election. Hotel lobbies aro tilled with folk reading the newspapers, and talk ing over the results. "Whn will wo know?" Is tho senti ment hoard from every Up. The Intense Injcrost manifested in the returns Is more evident than over this morning. Beglnlng about ff o'clock the telephones In newspaper offices were kept continu ally busy. As tho result became more and mora doubtful spaces In front of newspaper offices began to be crowded again, and In one placo sidewalk traffic was completely blocked. The prevailing sentiment seemed one of surprise. Last night's early returns favo such a trend to the belief that iughes had won that when Washing ton awoke this morning It was astound ed to think that the result was still In doubt. Street cars coming to town all morn ing were packed with more than the usual number of passengers, each one gripping a newspaper and trying to di gest its contents. The amount of dis cussion of the seeming reversal of last Educational Survey Will Soon Be Complete Study of Opportunities for Co-operation in Voca tional and High Studi es With Federal Bu- reaus Here Is Made by Teachers. An educational survey of local gov-1 ernment departments to relate their ! work to that of tho public schools has practically been completed. The survey was undertaken by teachers of tho J. O. Wilson Normal School, under direction of Superintendent Thurston. An unlimited store of Information that would help tho student who had chosen his life's work Is. available In Govern ment bureaus here, It Is believed. In this connection Postmaster M. O. Chance has instituted a competitive essay con test, tho subject dealing with the ques tion of malls. Prizes aro to be tempo rary positions during the Christmas holidays. The survey was not made with tho Idea of having the departments swamped with curious tcaohors, but was done to havo available a record of Information for tho benefit of teachers and pupils. Educational information available In tho departments Includes the following work and activities: First Aid Work. The first aid department of the Amer ican National Red Cross will supply physicians to give lectures on first aid. Such lectures were given last year to employes of the police department, telephone, nnd street car companies. Major Zimmerman, of the first aid de partment, will supply charts, pamphlets, and leaflets UBcful for school Instruc tion, and purchasable at a small price. The wealth of material available at the Agricultural Department suggests that a courso of practical gardening may eventually be added to the school curriculum, and broadened so that vo cational work may be had In that sub ject. TcacherB may have their names placed on mailing lists for monthly publications. Personal contact with ex perts Is recommended by the chiefs of bureaus In this department. The In dividual teacher can "'ten get other wise unavailable mnl and la item slides. Pictures from the Bureaus of Animal Industry, States Relation Service, and Entomology are obtainable from the division of publications. Lectures Available. The Bureau of States Relations has slides on agricultural subjects that are loaned for educational purposes. Each set of Afty-clght slides Is accompanied by a sylabus for a lecture. Material for school gardens and elementary agricul ture is included with colored slides of various flowers. Co-operative extension work along agriculture and home eco nomics lines Is carried on in this bu reau. Formation of clubs for boys and girls Is supervised by the department. Threo reels of motion pictures, many slides, and a traveling exhibit of wool may bo used in Instruction. Lectures on wheat and milk Inspec tion may be had from the Bureau of Animal Industry. The laboratories of the department are open for In mention bv nunlla' classes. A course In forestry could be supple-' mented by the bulletins from the de TO BE SEEN IsHflH Coprrlcbt, Harris Ewtnc.

Democrats have taken heart again, while a look of comparative gloom has descended on Vie faces of tho Republi cans. At the various departments, which last night were ensconsed In gloom a yard thick serene confidence In four more years of Wilson is coming back Into Its own. Noxt In popularity to "When will we know?" was " Hold you so." Various department officials are enjoying to the full the late reversal of affairs. The Times extras, announcing the lat est returns, scarcely get on the streets betoro they are grabbed up by the news greedy public. Newsboys crying their wares are about the most popular per sona on the streets today. The tense air ot expectancy on the streets and In hotel lobbies shows Washington's deep concern In the results. partment. Tree planting and farm management could be taught by lantorn slides, exhibits, and publica tions. Information an the Indian schools can be. obtained from the heads of bureaus and divisions of the Interior Department. Particularly valuable suggestions along vocational and practical lines may be had from a study of the publications Issued by this office. Current educational questions are treated In bulletins given out by the Bureau of Education. Tho topographi cal and geological features ot the Dis trict can be explained to pupils of the public schools by experts from the Geological Survey. The National Park division supplies slides of Yellowstone. Nesa Verde, Yoscmlte, and all tho oth er national parks. First aid to the In jured Is taught by the Bureau of Mines. From an educational pobit of view, tho National Museum, with Its exhibits of worldwide extent, has been of great value to Washington schools, through occasional visits In the past, but the full oxtent of Its many facilities has never been realized.

HTATT8VILLE, Nov. 8.-Tho election In Prince George's county yesterday fur nlshed several surprises, tho most pro nounced of which was the victory for the anti-prohibitionists. While there Is one district and ona precinct yet to be heard from, there Is no question but that the "wets" have won by a ma jority of between 60 and 100. The vote on this question so far counted Is 2,670 to 2,673. Another sur- grlse was the largo majority obtained y Congressman Mudd over Jackson II. Ralston, the Democratic candidate, this being the latter's home eounty. Mudd carried the county by more than 1,000, while Wilson got practically 800, and Lewis won over France by something over flw. But little. Interest was taken on the widget amendment, which, however, carried easily. IN SENATE BY OEFEATEO LEWIS Lee Forces in Counties Also Helped to Eleot Republican for Senate in Maryland. BALTIMORE. Nov. . President Wilson swept Maryland In yesterday's election, receiving a plurality over Justice Hughes estimated at between 12,000 and 16.000, but Congressman Lewis, the Democratic nominee for United States Senator, was defeated by Dr. Joseph Irwin France. Karly this morning It seemed cer tain that the Democrats had re elected Congressmen Price, Talbott, ICoKdy, and Llnthlcum, but Congress man Mudd, Republican, appeared to bo re-elected In the Fifth district, and State Senator Zlhlman, Republi can, was elected In the Sixth. Mr. Lewis' defeat was due to cut ting In Baltimore city by the Mahon machine forces, to cutting In the counties by the Lee people and to an apparent onslaught upon him In Bal timore county by the liquor forces. The latter also joined In the cut In Baltimore city. ITow. They Cut. Some Idea of the merciless way In which tho Mahon people went after Mr. Lewis to gratify their grudge against the State organisation may be had when It Is understood that the 244 precincts which gave President Wilson 7.000 plu rality over Justice Hughes, gavo Dr. France approximately 7,000 plurality over Mr. Lewis. In other words, there was a. complete turn around. All over the city the Mahon people openly ued their knives to the hilt. The Lee people followed suit In sev eral of the counties where they are or ganized and where their leaders taKo orders. They cut heavily In Montgom ery, In Queen Anne's, In Somerset, and other counties. In Harford, on the other hand. Senator Archer stood up for Lewis manfully, and he received a fine plurality. Democrats Win Congressmen. In Baltimore county. Mr. Lewis was behind Dr. France, although President Wilson and Mr. Talbott were far In the lead. That was ascribed to the liquor people. Tho Democrats seemed to havo tho better in tho ' fight for Congressmen. They had tho lead In the'first four dis tricts, In which Congressmen Price, Talbott, Coady, and Llnthlcum ran for re-election. But Mr, Price was having a hard fight at last accounts, having losf Wi comico, his own county, by about 100, and Mr. Coady and Mr. Llnthlcum were suffering from cutting back and forth between the Mahon and Kelly factions. GUARD OF RETURNS District Militiamen Enthused When Early Reports From Polls Are Read. CAMP WILSON, SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Nov. 8.,-Tho District militiamen rocolved tho eloctlon returns by wireless. The news was first flashed to the wire less station at Fort Sam Houaton and then transmitted to a field radio station at tho District soldiers' Y. M. C.

The District soldiers will participate In a battle tonight. Members of tho three Wisconsin regi ments here cast 2,600 votes. A large ma jority of tho ballots were for Hughes. The actual count will not be known jntll the ballot boxes have been taken to Madison. The Wisconsin soldiers were Interested In the claims made by both parties In their State and expressed the belief that the majority they rolled up for Hughes might swing the State. A few soldiers from Virginia and Kan sas aiso voted nere. WIRELESS INFORMS ALL WASHINGTON TURNS OUTTO HEAR AT HEADQUARTERS tLLGIlUN itH Crowds Watch in Front ,of Bul letin Boards and in Cafes and Theaters. GREAT THRONG ' IN AVENUE People Come by Two and Threes, But Stay to Hear the Final Results. Alt Washlnrfnn. tnim1v .rmrdnt watchod for returns last night. They watched In front of tho bulletin boards. In tho cafes. thntn mnvltiB nlnturn houses, and at their homes. The largest crowd that ever packed Pennsylv&nl nvenun wntht Th Times' bulletin board. The space be tween Thirteenth and Fourteenth strcots and tho Avenun wm fltlFl. nnrllul nnri Jammed with a cheering, seething mass oi numamty, which flwed over both sides ot tho street and the sidewalks and packed tho steps of tho District Dunaing across the street. That the crowd w an Irr believed partly due to the ruling of the Pollco Department that automobiles could not use tho Avenue between Ninth and Fourteenth, streets. Even street cars had tlfllcu'lty In moving between seekers. Interest Shown. Washington's Intense Interest In tho outcome of yesterday's election was amply demonstrated by the way tho crowds assembled. It was not a rapid natter, their warming up. Rather they came by twos and threes, but when they came they stayed, and watched every bulletin intently. There were the usual crowd types tho doubter, the eleventh-hour bettor, and the "sweet young thing" who wanted to know what It all-meant. And there were a "few who derived their exuberance from Internal stim ulus, but not many. !':.v.erv. hotel was packed with diners, while the lobbies heard many a whig-" pered conversation between politician and predictor. A few wan smiles on Democratic faces only served to deep en the gloom tho early returns cast over the majority of Administration supporters. At several of the departments "watch parties," which had been In stituted to see the results forecast ing Wilson's re-election, ceased at an early hour. Artificial Gayety. An air of artificial gayety was In evidence at the various cafes and ho tel restaurants. The dancjng showed the same vigorous feeling bs the lob bies. Mr. and Mrs. Columbia had more to do than to see who was elect ed. They had to celebrate and they did. Tho dining room of the New Ebbltt was turning them away at an early hotr; tho sarrto was true of tho Ra leigh, the WlHard. tho Powhatan, and soveral restaurants, Tho festivities could scarce bo stopped to permit the reception of tho later bulletins as thoy came. The crowd knew enough. The theaters were packed with amusement-loving humanity. Several of tho amusement places offered two bills on election night, both of which were well attended. But tho drawing cards were the elec tion bulletin boards on "Newspaper Row." The crowd started coming early and it kept coming. HOWlSTOTED Republican Congresman Has Lead Over Ralston of Thousand Ballots.

Llppltt, Rhode Island's presont senior Senator, by nearly 4,000 majority. Gerry's election Is attributed generally to the work of the labor Interests, who fought Llppltt strongly.

RETURNS GIVEN OUT AT HEADQUARTERS Those who preferred to get their knowledge of the political battle while comfortably seated were accommodated at numerous headquarters of the va rious organizations last night. The old rafe Rcpubllque. Fifteenth and F streets, was filled with members of the Woman's Wilson Union and ottv'r Democratic organizations, niul complete reports wero flashed on a screen as they were received over the wires. The chief Republican headquarters was that of the League of Republl -an State Hubs at 1412 11 street northwest, where telegraphic reports of the returns wort received and shown on a screen.

Tho HURhes Club of Washington held sway at Fifteenth and F streets, where a special operator was cn&aged to flush tho returns.

Apparently tho sam thing happened In Daltlmore county. but the returns from there are not as COndUHlVA fin thkan In iUm .llw Annapolis llkewlsq Is reported to havo gone "wet" by BOO votes, while. In Kllcott City, the only place voting on tho question from which definite returns have been rccolved, the "drys" I lost out by 26i votes. City Vote Surprise. Tho results In Baltimore city were a surprise ovon to the most rabid antl-prohlbltlonlsts. At midnight re turns from 1C1 nreclnct nut of n tntnl of 316 showed a majority In favor of the sale of liquor of 21,616. These figures Indicate a majority against prohibition In tho entire city of be tween 40,000 and 60.000 votes. Only the lower precincts In Baltimore c?.urlty navo btfn heard from, but thoy plied up such a lead for tho "wets' that no ono has any Idea that the up per precincts, which are expected to go "dry," can overcome It. The voto In 16 precincts was 6.778 against prohibition to 2.K6 for it. This means a majority of 3,423 votes to bo overcome If the county Is to go Into the "dry" column. The vote In Elllcott City was 139 for prohibition to 165 against tho proposi tion. It was one of the places tho 'drys" expected to enrry and Is tho only place In Howard' county whero liquor Is spld or has been sold for a number of years. Other Counties Vote. Prohibition was voted upon also In Allegany, Washington, Frederick, Carroll nnd Prlnco George's counties, and In Havre do draco and tho Brook lyn and Curtis Bay district of Anno Arundel county. No dcflnlto Informa tion has been received from any cf these places. Tho "drys" are claiming Frederick county by over 1.000 votes. Washington county, from the meager returns io cclved, appears to bo very close, with the chances favoring the "wets," though some precincts which went "wet" In.thnt county several years ago recorded small "dry" majorities yes terday. Prince George's county Is said to bo -- .. .n..t wmv .iiciq mil 14 rcii hot one and a good deal of mitalde uiaiuiiciu mieni was Drougnt In to help has not reported.

Because It was felt that the "drys" wero exceptionally well organized In n1flm-.-A fltv rf.l1 . ... --.-- w... . t,i ncifl BCCIJ1 ed to be working more or less unsyste- iiiHucnny, wio generui opinion was that tho city would not go "wet" by moro than 10,000 or 12.000. A great manv estimated the probable majority for tho sale of liquor at considerably below mm insure. Fight Is Old One. The "wet" and "dry" vote of yester day was the culmination of an agita tion that has kept Maryland stirred for years. The fight started with nn attempt to secure the passago of a local option bill. William IT. Ander son was brought here from Illinois to direct things on behalf of the Anti-Saloon League, and did so until a little over two years ago, wln-n he was succeeded by the Rev. Dr. Thorn ns M. Hare, who had been given credit for the passage of the prohibition hill In West Virginia. Just before Dr. Hare appeared u'n.n the scene, the Anti-Saluon League switched from local option to State wide prohibition.
