With most dis tricts heard from there appears to be a majority of approximately 2,500 votes against equal suffrage In Mid dlesex county. Perth Am boy went against the cause by a vote of 1,7 00 to 1,314, the majority being 886. The city opposed amendment No. 3, con cerning excess condemnation, almost equally as much, the vote being 1, 582 to 1,243, showing a majority of 839 against it. Amendment No. 2 was lost In the city by a vote of 1,545 to 1.336, a majority of 179. Only One County For Suffrage. Latest returns Indicated that only one of the twenty-one counties in the state went in favor of equal suffrage. That was Ocean vounty. bordering on the Atlantic ocean, an agricultural and fisherman's community, which went about 300 in favor of equal suffrage. Counties In the northern part of the state voted overwhelm ingly against suffrage and in Essex county alone the estimated majority against It Is 14,000. The majorities against the cause In counties follow: Atlantic, 2,600; Bi:rgcn, 1,000; Bur lington, 2,000; Camden, 3,200; Cape May, 300; Cumberland. 860; Essex, 14,000; Gloucester, 550; Hudson, 8,000; Hunterdon, 550; Mercer, 3,000; Middlesex, 2,600; Monmouth. 800; Morris, 1,100; Passaic, 1,090; Salem, 450; Somerset. 1,800; Sussex, 000; Union, 2,400; Warren, 400. The esti mated majority in the state Is 50,000, and prominent political leaders de clare that it will Jump to sixty or seventy thousand when all districts have been heard from. President Woodrow Wilson declared himself for suffrage In this state. How ever, Ills district In Princeton voted against It to the extent of 150 to 64, a majority of eighty-six votes. Plain field, the home of Mrs. Edward F. Feickert, president of the New Jer sey State Woman's Suffrage Associa tion, and of Champlin L. Kiley, presi dent of the New Jersey Men's League for Equal Suffrage, also went against the cause. Newark, as the largest city in the state, was naturally the center of in terest. New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts kept in close touch with this city all day. · As soon as the polls closed Inquiries from these states poured In. Stories to the effect that the election rivould be contested on the ground of fraud received little credence today. In the defeat suffrage partisans are pretending to see a repudiation of President Wilson's views on the sub ject. Impartial observers are unwill ing to agreo that the chief executive has lost prestige by the result, point t lng out that he voted simply as an Individual. There does not seem to he any form of alibi for the defeat of the suffrage amendment. Had weather conditions been adverse, this might have been advanced, but the da:y was perfect, thus Insuring a large vote. It may be claimed that the political machine caused the downfall of equal suffrage, but In some sections of the state where party Influences are not considered to dominate the electorate, the antl majority remained unbroken. Must Walt For Seven Years. Α ι* all three proposed amendments were lost, the advocates of equal suffrage will have to wait for seven years before they can hope to obtain the ballot for New Jersey women.

"New Jersey isn't New York," said MrE. James Lees I .aid law. "Of course we would be glad had Jersey won suffrage, but we know that they had not the preparation that we have had here." The overwhelming defeat of suffrage In New Jersey means the abandon ment of the state fight of various or ganizations working for the cause and the centering of all efforts of an amendment to the federal constitution giving women the vote. This was Indicated here today by Dr. Anna Howard Shaw, president of the National American Woman's Suffrage Association. Dr. Shaw declared the check in New Jersey would Inevitably drive the women to congress to ask for the franchise. I,ate returns today indicated that the majority returned against suffrage yes terday may reach 60,000. Out of twenty-one counties only one voted to give women the ballot.

"The fact that President Wilson did not carry his own state for suffrage Is mighty significant," she said. "It will have α sweeping effect. It moans de feat for suffrage in Pennsylvania."

L WORK RESUMES AT CITY LIGHT PLANT Watson-Flagg Representative Declares There is No Strike as Far "as He's Concerned. WILL EMPLOY ANY ONE Masons and Bricklayers Will Go to Work Tomorrow, It is Stated. The once popular saying of "Oft again, on again, Ftnnegan," has been applicable to the' strike situation in volved between the local electrical union and the Watson-Flagg Kngin eering Company the past few days. The strike, or whatever those con cerned have chosen to call It, was con sidered settled yesterday. l.ast night, all efforts to settle it wore undone, and today Pie Watson-Flagg represen tative here declared that there was no strike, so far as he was concerned, as all work was being resumed, there would be a full quota of men on the job tomorrow and negotiations had been broken off. The firm's superin tendent stated that the work would go on in full blast, regardless of whether there would come a settlement, or no agreements be reached. Asked If union men would be employed, he re plied, "Yes, whenever posaibte; but others might be taken on." All negotiations were broken off abruptly last night when the union representatives returned with a patch ed-up agreeirtent, which contained an other rainy weather clause. It pro vided that the employers had to pay employes for half a day, If they ven tured out on a Job for any length of lime. It was flatly and promptly re jected by the Wntson-Flagg superin tendent. Today he stated the strike was over, so far as his company was concerned, as they could not under take to pay men when they did not work. The electrical workers asked for an Increase In pay to $3.50 a day .and an eight-hour day, which they secured. It Is declared that they then returned and demanded $4 for a day's work. Fills was refused. Through efforts of Ihe aldermen, the Watson-Flagg repre sentative and electrical union officials conferred Monday afternoon. They were together for about four hours, threshed out each point and then agreed to strike out the Inclement weather clause, releasing the contrac tors from paying men when they did not work. It was planned to have irtlcles of agreement signed last night. When the Watson-Flagg superintend ent saw the again altered a^'eements, lie declined to sign. With that came the breaking of negotiations. It was stated among contractors nnd employes on the electrical plant that the masons and bricklayers would resume work there, tomorrow morning, having appeared to become disgusted with the actions of mem bers of the electrical union. It was plain that the Watson-Flagg repre sentatives had tired of dealing with the electrical union officials and In dications were that they would not again take up negotiations with them. The result. It appears, will be that the work will be done with such men in the employ of the Watson-Flagg Company as it can secure,· but pref erence will be shown to local men. Fflforts will probably be made to se cure union men, but If none will work on the plant because of the walk-out, the company will engage such men as it can regardless of whether they are affiliated with a union. While the work lias been held up pending negotiations the past several tlays, a howl has been set upon by some merchants and drivers because of the large openings in streets, par ticularly along Smith street. They have a hinderance and anger to traf fic, while no steps have been taken to close them up and complete the work. GOVERNMENT SCORES AT NEW HAVEN R. R. TRIAL special by United Prcsu Wire. .

Qriffen, a farmer of Bradveit, Monmouth county. Andrew Wolff, twenty months old, son of George Wolff, of 527 High stret, died shortly after 6 o'clock last night as the re ! suit of being crushed by a Lehigh Valley train at the railroad com pany's stock grounds near its home. The Metubsky child died a few min utes after it had been rup down, its head having been horribly crushed. Run Over by Wagon. Little Alfred Metubsky, toddled out of the yard of its home and out on West Side avenue just in time to be run over by the Griffon farming rig shortly before 3 o'clock yesterday j afternoon. Dennis Quish, thirty years I old, of Bradveit, was the driver. I He was arrested on a technical charge of manslaughter and-locked up here, pending the granting of bail by Judge J)aly at the county seat today. In the wagon with him at the time of the accident was Qriffen, William Clark and John Flynn, all of Mon mouth county. They were en route to deliver a load of potatoes, which had been sold at the public market. With Griffen seated by his side at the front, and the other two men on the rear of the farm wagon, Quish drove down the steep decline on the westerly sido of the Hall avenue bridge. He turned northward into West Hide avenue and continued down grade, with the horses running:, wit nesses say. A few seconds after he had made the turn ho was about to pass In front of the Metubsky home, when the Metubsky child cume run ning out of the gate and onto the street. The horses were running at such speed that nil efforts to stop them to avoid strlkkig the child were futile. The little victim was knocked down and it is believed that one of the wheels supporting the heavy 1 ad ran over its head and crushed it. V\ illlng hands en fried the child to its home. It was then hurried to the office of Dr. Urbanskl, where it died a few minutes after the accident. Dr. Rtuasay reported the accident to Chief of Police Burke and In the meanwhile Quish went to police head quarters to give himself up. There was a report that Quish and the other occupants of the wagon acted as though they were under the influ ence of liquor. Chief Burke stated today that there was no such signs when they appeared at police head quarters. Quish was immediately locked up, pending arraignment be fore Judge Daly today. Investigates Accident. Mounted I'atrolman Hartung made an investigation of the accident. He ascertained who owned the rig and summoned Coroner Mullen. The offi cial investigated the case thoroughly. He discovered that John Muska, of 4 59 Penn street, was an eye witness. , According to Coroner Mullen, Muskn states that Quish drove up on the sidewalk In front of the Metubsky I home, when he took a wide turn Into ι West Side avenue, and caused the rig to hit the child while It was on the sidewalk. , Andrew Wolff, twenty months old, i of 527 High street, died in the city s hospital at Π : 1 5 o'clock last night as i the result of being crushed and hav ing both legs amputated when run \ over by α drilling train of the Lehigh I Valley railroad. The accident hap- 1 pened within about fifty feet of the t Wolff home, the child having veil- 1 turcd out of the yard und over on the f southerly track at the southerly side s of the stock grounds of the railroad · company, according to all information ' available. Drs. W. E. Ramsay and t M. S. Melnzer were summoned imme- 1 diately after the accident and at their 1 order the little victim was placed In < an automobile and rushed to the ci!y ^ hospital. Dr. J. L. I,und was engaged > In operating nt the Institution. Every means possible to save the child's llfo ' was resorted to, bul it was believed ■ that life could not continue more than 1 a few hours. One leg was amputated ' above the ankle and the other just ·β below the knee. c Having practically decided to thor- ' oughly investigate all sudden deaths, s whether physicians are In attendance ' before death or the persons die with out medical attention, ("oroner K. ,T.

It has been the λ common belief that a coroner Is not f obliged to handle cases wherein phy- ' siclans have been In attendance be- ' fore death and are able to sign death certificates.

That Asquith was losing Influence was generally con ceded, many even of his friends hav ing openly come over to the view that though a capable adminster, the pre mier is not the man for such an emer gency as the present one.
