Become Certainty
League Candidate Republican
Nominee for Governor by
Plurality of 30,000
(Associated Press'
SAN FRANCISCO. Aug. 17.—As more
complete returns on yesterday's pri
mary election arc received and tabu
lated the decisive insurgent victory
indicated by first figures becomes a
certainty. Hiram Johnson has been de
clared Republican nominee for gover
nor by a plurality or nearly 30,000 over
Charles F. Curry, his closest opponent.
With San Francisco and Alatneda
counties virtually complete in the count
and returns from 1013 precincts out of
the 2790 outside of the bay territory,
Johnson's recorded vote is 84,512; Cur
ry, 53,245; Anderson, 30,245; Ellery,
1524; Stanton, 14,657.
Alameda county returns changed the
lieutenant governor situation tonight.
Francis V. Knesling now leads Albert
Wallace by a little more than 200 votes.
San Francisco and Alameda counties
and Sl7 outside precincts give the fol
lowing results for lieutenant gover
Farmer, 22,6?2: Ferris. 19,185; Kees
ling, 35.532: Wallace, 38,304.
In the advisory vote for United States
Senator John D. Works is approxi
mately 1500 votes ahead of A. G. Spald
ing. The vote of Alameda and San
Francisco with 759 outside precincts
gives Meserve 25,222, Spalding, 32,346;
Works, 33,032.
For attorney general, U. P. Webb
has increased his lead over Frank Mc-
Gowan by many thousands. The two
bay counties and $21 outside precincts
give Webb 15,675, MeGowan 49,192.
Other state offices for which returns
have been compiled are as follows, the
totals representing the vote of Ala
meda and San Francisco counties plus
the number of outside precincts and
indicated in each case:
Associate justice of the supreme

Walter B. Thorpe 9620.
These are all the general totals at
hand, the task of compiling the results
proving- to be .a slow one.
From other figures it is now known
that William D. Kent, opposing Dun
can McKinlay for congress in the Sec
ond district, has a lead of 1142 votes.
The indications are that Kent will win
the nomination, another insurgent vic
In the Seventh congressional .district
Stephens, the insurgent, is leading
James McLachlan by over 1000 and his
nomination is conceded. In the Fifth
district E. A. Hayes, incumbent, but
who was closely associated with the
Insurgent movement In congress, is
leading Charles Davidson by n< a.rly
6000 in the vote from San Francisco
and san Jose alone.
Virtually complete returns from Pan
Francisco gives Edward Rolkin for
member of the state board of equaliza
tion, First district, a lead of nearly
8000 over Joseph Scott, his closest op
ponent. For railroad commissioner,
lei ond district, H. ix Loveland lias a
lead of more than 3000 In this city over
Edward A. Tingler. For presiding jus
tice of the district court of appeals,
First district, Thomaa J. Lennon, un
opposed, polled a vote of 30,200.
There is no possibility that a general
Idea of the legislative nominees can be
secured tonight. The vote is badly
scattered and the result in many dis
tricts will not be known certainly until
all precincts have been heard from.

Regular Republicans Win Every
County Contest
ram Johnson's state-wide victory was
carried even into San Berdardino
county, where the campaign managers
of all the gubernatorial candidates
conceded Aiden Anderson i safe plur
ality. Where the "regulars" were sup
posedly safely Intrenched, insurgency
carried Johnson's name before it and
with but a few scattering remote pre
cincts on the desert not yet in, the
I-iineoln-Roosovelt standard bearer is
ahead with a comfortable plurality.
The vote as It now stands, with prob
ably less than 200 ballots to be ac
counted for. gives Johnson 1758 votes,
Anderson 1473, Stanton 943, Curry 278

For United States senator Meserve
leads with 1580 votes. Spalding, the
candidate of the county organization, '
has 1386 and Works 1097.
The regulars triumphed in the con
tests for every county office, the Lln
ooln-Roosevelt candidates going clown
to defeat in each instance by over
whelming pluralities. The closest coYi
test was for tax collector, but victory
Is now assured for L. A. Desmond,

F. Lemon and 1433 for T. E. Moon.

Republican votes cast in this county,

ernor. Wilbur for associate justice
was the only state candidate who polled
a higher vote, 2126. While the regu
lars lost on the county vote for stattf
offices, secretary of state exceptecl,

particularly those for assembly, sher
iff, clerk, district attorney and auditor.
The only close fight was between ('. D.
Lester and F. S. Trickey for auditor,
the former winning by slxtcon votes.

City Directory Contains 8205 of

Estimated at 2,500,000
CHICAGO, Aug. 17.-AVith a new
directory giving the names of 803,108
Chicagroana and accounting for a total
of 2,"39,013 by the usual methods of
computing populations of cities, pub
lishers of what is said to be the biggest
directory in the world announced yes
terday their belief that Chicago had
2,500,000 people claiming it as home;
The directory company compared the
803.10S names found in Chicago in 1910
With the total number of names found
in the city in 1900, and comparing the
latter to the census bureau's finding
of that year reached an average. From
this they reached a conclusion that
Chicago's population is 2,329,018, and
allowing for errors bound to creep into
tlif most carefully prepared work, E.
J. Dillon, in direct charge of the is
suance of the directory, says he
thought an estimate of. 2,500,000 was
not too large.
The Smiths no longer enjoy the dis
tinction of being the most numerous in
the directory. The Johnsons have put
all others far behind them, and the
new book shows there are 8205 of them
in Chicago, to say nothing of 518
Johnstons, which might be included.
The Smiths are easily second, having
5333 to their credit.

OSTEND, Aug. 17.—There was great
excitement in Ostend recently over a
raid made in the rooms of the "Ostend
Literary soe'ety" at the Kursaal.
The raid was made by the Ghent
magistrates, supported by a stronj,
force of detectives and police in plain
clothes. They entered the club rooms
at 10:30 o'clock by a side door and
forcibly prevented the porter from giv
ing the alarm.
Some 500 men and women were play
ing baccarat at the moment. They
included many distinguished German,
French, English and American visitors.
A wild scene followed.
The police seized the stakes, amount
ing to about $70,000, the players mean
while^vehemently protesting against
the intrusion and shouting, "Thieves!"
Some of the men challenged the mag
istrates for remaining covered in the
presence of ladies.
One Englishman asserted his "right
to put his money anywhere he liked."
Another, gambler snatched a bundle of
banknotes from a policeman. Several
tried to break open the locked door
and knocked down a policeman who
was guarding it.
Meanwhile the concert in the, Casinrt
was finishing and a fresh body of club
members, Ignorant of the raid, en
deavored to press their way into the
rooms, this adding to the confusion.
The police were two hours clearing the
rooms and completing their investiga
The women present, who' seem to
have boon mostly Germans, were par
ticularly indignant, and the German
vice consul was overwhelmed the next
day with complaints regarding the al
leged brusqueness- and incivility of the
police. The local tradesmen and hotel
keepers are furious, saying that such
episodes will "ruin Ostend." The raid
was due to a peremptory order from
the minister of justice.
HAGftRSTOWN, Md., Aug. 17.—The
