Superintendent of Elections Morgan in New York City, Caused Arrest of Hundreds of Men Suspected of Illegal Voting This Morning. STEADY STRUM FROM POLLS TO THEME COURTS Chas. E. Hughes Voted at 8 O'Clock and Was Loudly Cheered. Aaaoclated Preaa to Tha Evening Tlnra. New York, Nov. 6.—Exceptionally favorable weather conditions after a campaign of almost unprecedented ac tivity on the part of the two leading candidates for gubernatorial honors, seems to insure an unusually large vote. Balloting started with a rush as soon as the polls were opened. In one election district in the Bronx, 132 ballots were deposited in the first ninety minutes of voting. The service of thousands of warrants swern out by Superintendent of Election Morgan was begun early in the day, and there was a steady stream of prisoners from the polling places to the police courts. In nearly every case in the first three hours, however, the prisoners proved their right to vote, and were permitted to go back and deposit their ballots. Charles E. Hughes, the republican candidate for governor, voted short)y before 8 o'clock in an Amsterdam avenue barber shop. Hughes walked down from his home in West End ave nue. He was greeted with a cheer as he approached the polling place. Dispatches from cities and towns up state indicate that a large vote is be ing polled. Everywhere the weather is favorable and country roads are in fine condition. In, all industrial centers the early morning vote was unusually haavy. As the. forenoon wore on, balloting throughout the city continued with unabated strength. This is particu larly noticeable in the so-called "silk stockings" neighborhood. In the thir teenth election district of the twenty ninth assembly district, 01 out of a total Registration of 547 had been polled up to 9 o'clock. Reports from fifteen districts in the Sixteenth, E a Twenty-ninth assembly districts, cov ering the Park, Madison, Fifth and Lexington avenues, to the east and south of Central Park, showed that •about one-third of the total vote had been cast before 9 o'clock.

Va., Nov. 6.—An at tempt was made today to wreck the tipple of the Elm Grove coal works, near here. A stick of dynamite was placed in the stove in the scale house directly under the tipple.

WMSITQIT Election Day in Capital City Quiet Owing to Dis franchisement. Aaaoclated Preaa to The Evening Tline*. Washington, D. C., Nov. 6.—Election Jay has brought on Washington a Sun day quiet. The situation here is anomalous in that, while there is no locality that possesses and feels so deep an interest in the result of the political contest which has now reach ed its climax, there is no real outward local manifestation of that interest. This is due to the fact that citizens of the District of Columbia are disfran chised, and are thus rendered incap able of actual participation in the con test. The departments have been empty ing themselves of voters for several days until today in all the big govern ment buildings the forces were reduced to the lowest minimum possible. Desks everywhere were vacant, their occu pants having gone home to vote. This applied as well to ihe higher officials. The example set 'by the president and by the heads of departments in going away to vote was followed almost uni formly by the clerks of bureaus and subordinates In all the branches of government work. The government service was not allowed to suffer be cause of this exodus of voters, as the heads of departments prepared for the lack of workers by getting the routine work well in hand and in such condi tion that a reduced number of em ployes could handle it The capitol building was practically deserted. None of the official- posi tions in that building is subject to civil service rule and most of them are held as a result of personal political serv ice. As a consequence, the occupants have in many cases been quite as much occupied with political affairs as have their superiors. Of all the government bureaus the largest quota of voters left the government printing office. There are several thousand men in that office and they are about equally divided between democrats and repub licans. Tho United States supreme court constituted one exception to the gen eral rule prevailing at the capital. That tribunal went forward today as usual with its business, but even the members of the cour ar? not totally divorced from the ganeral concern felt over the election results. Naturally the most interest here Is taken in the result of the New York contest. Many eyes are turned also toward Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Colorado and Idaho, in all of which states the contests are re garded as of unusual Interest and the results more or lesB in doubt. BOTH SIDES CLAIM IT. Election in Montana Fnrnisheg More Than Ordinary Interest. Aaaoclated Preaa to The Kvealaic Tlmea. Helena, Nov. 6.—Election day here opened fair and cool with indications of pleasant weather throughout the state. In Helena voting began early. Reports from over the state indicate a heavier vote than was expected will be polled.

Columbus, Ohio, Nov. 6.—A warm day with the sun shining early through the clouds, characterized election day here. The vote was slow In coming out in the early hours.

Aaaoclnte.d Preaa to The Rvenlag Tlmea. Oyster Bay, Nov. 6.—President Roosevelt reached here at 9:11 a. m. and was greeted by a crowd of men, women and children. After shaking hands with most of those present, he was driven to the polling place ot the Fifth district, over a Chinese laundry in East Main street, and after shaking hands with each of the election offi cers, he received ballot No. 94, and When daylight dawned this morn ing it was on the opening of the big gest battle that has been fought at the ballot box in this state for years, and in all probability in the history of the state. At nearly fifteen hund red voting precincts in the state were the formal openings of the machinery which was to register the will of the people of the state, on the men who are to be entrusted with the manage ment of state affairs, and the repre sentation of the people in the national congress for the next two years. One thing of which North Dakota may boast—the work of the republican party—that there is no danger of the fraud and trickery in the conducting of the election and no stuffing of the ballot boxes. No matter how much the people may differ on political mat ters, the recording of the popular will is decidedly honest. It is not so in many states. In New York today men have gone to the polls between two lines of policemen and been searched as to their resider.ee and lives as though they were criminals before a tribunal of justice. In North Dakota today the battle has been outside the electioneering limit. It has been waged incessantly for four weeks and the guns are not silenced even as this story is being read by the people of the state. The democrats, having all to gain and nothing to lose, have made a fight for thi offices which has been little short of desperation. They have campaigned the state and have had the backing of interests which they would refuse to recognize on the street. They-were at their posts when the gong sounded this morning, and it is certain that no man who profess es allegiance t6 that party did other Bold Crime Reported at Ladd, Near Ottawa, 111,, Last Night.

But while the democratic voter was in the booth voting a straight ticket, his fellow democrats were out in the hedges and byways pleading with his republican friends to accept the doctrines of party traitors and vote a part at least of the democratic ticket. How many times the argument has been made today to cut the ticket and help elect some of the local candidates on the democratic ticket because the Herald and a few other like political charac ters have so advised, only the record ing angel could tell. But at every point of the line today have stood the valiant republicans, not all stalwarts, but hundreds of those who differed from the victorious faction, and yet were too honorable to turn traitor after having submitted their cause to the arbitrament of the properly chos en tribunal. These have stood shoul der to shoulder with their late rivals and have voted to reiiel the rebel as sault on the stronghold of republi canism.

One-third the Vote Was Cast Soon After the Polls Opened. Aaaoclated Preaa to The Evening Tlmea. St. Paul. Minn.. Nov. 6.—Bright and mild Indian summer weather greeted TIMES The Slate. As the Evening Times goes to press this evening nothing more definite than morning surmises are available, but the.v indicate (h..t from every part of the state will come a concise en dorsement of the republican party. As can readily be seen, the country dis tricts, except where they can lie reached by phone, will not be able to get their returns so that they can be received in this city before some time tomorrow morning, and any figures given out before that time will be the merest guesses. The tickets are long, the counting will be slow and the lateness of the time when the polls close will make the matter of secur ing definite returns a labor for to morrow rather than tonight. This is especially true of the western por tion of the state where the largest straight republican vote will be cast. In the City. The city vote will not indicate the results in the county and while the returns from the precincts in the city will be available at a rather early hour tonight, definite results from the entire county will not be obtainable until Wednesday. The voters as a rule voted early and the ladies who cast a rather large poll, did most of their voting before dinner. The usual number of carriages have been used and it is said that the inability of the county central committee to distin guish between their own caused many of the voters to be taken to (he pre cincts in the opposition carriages. There was little excitement in the city and the voters did their voting and re turned to their work with as little delay as possible.
