In the absence or of? ficial figures, b number that were not official were widely circulated. The f.rBt official report come from the fifth preolnct of Lee Ward at S:?3 o'clock. The new* spread to th? ride walks, where a large portion of the crowd sought relief from the heat, and there was a combined rush for seats. The report was tabled for fifteen minutes longer, while Chairman Miles M Martin, of the City Democratic Comi rhlttee, waited for a quorum to call the meeting to ord<-r The quorum fir.aalv assembled ?t 5:15 o'clock, when tho report was given to' the public.

One thousand people stood for three hours last night In front of the busi? ness office of The Times-Dispatch, watching the returns from the Admin? istrative Board elect! m. Cheers from the supporters of each candidate greeted the pos?ng of the bulletins from each ward. A number of women who were present were no less enthu? siastic than the men, and kept tabu it tt 1 records of the results, writing Ott the shoulders 'A their escorts. The hist bulletin was put up at S:20 o'clock The last came at 11:30. Dur? ing the early part of the evening t'n< number watching the bulletins was far larger than after 10 o'clock, by which time the leaders of the ticket were fairly well nxid. When the returns from the first Precinct of Madison Ward, the last to be received, were placed in the win,low "there was a mounting In lot haste." Men hastily put figures down in memorandum books and ran for cars. By 11:45 the crowd was gone. The crowd In front of The Times Dispatch building was probably Second only ti that gathered in lie ' ||y Aud? itorium.

Some o." the precincts reported the number of ballot* thrown out; others did not. In the Second Precinct of Clay Ward fifty-nine defective votes were reported, tlie largest number heard if. Forty-three votes were found defective In the Second Precinct of Jefferson Ward, thirty In the Fifth fro inct of Jefferson Ward, twenty tive In the First Precinct of Madison Ward, twenty-eight In the Third Pre-1 clnct of Madison War 1 and eighteen in the Third Precinct of Lee Ward. All of these citizens lost their votes and might as well have stayed at h">me. The press did all it could to make the way ho clear that the wayfaring man need not have erred. There might be ground for a contest in the ruling of the City Committee which was. say attorneys, in direct vio? lation if the general State election law, I which specifically provides that nj bal-' lot may be trown out If It contains : fewer than th ? number of names to be. 1 voted for.

He had many active a-id earnest work? ers. Yet he finished ninth. Th<? truth Is that the burden of the Citizens' As? sociation was too heavy for him to carry, and while he ran well In some West End precincts, he was a victim of the solid fight against the association waged In the Kast End, where he had hoped for better things. Karly returns Indicated that Mr. Knowles had a good chance, and for a time he stood fourth in the returns. Late figures, however, put him to the rear.
