In the course ot the agitation I re
gret very much to have seen many ex
pressions f irritation and of indigna
tion at the conduct of Russia Mr
Gladstone himself not being alto
gether guiliJess In this respect I
is a case in which we should do well
t take the beam out of our own eye
before raving at the mote in the eye I
of the Russian In view of the evi
dence now patent to all men a to t
the real essential nature of Turkish
rule Englands attitude toward Russia II
ought certainly not t b that of re
sentment or of indignation Grant
ing that for the moment the policy
of reserve and of inaction adopted by
Russia is most deplorable in the in
terests of humanity it i but a pass
ing epkx > de of a few months at the
most But Englands attitude for
50 years has been just that which I
Russia ha adopted within the last I
12 months Let us grant i you please
the worst that can be said against
Russian policy the effect of which has
been to secure the 12 months longer lease
of immunity to the assassin of Stam
boul What is that compared with the I
guilt which we have incurred by our
persistent support of the TurkIsh mis
rule a support persisted in for genera
tion after generation and that not
merely by the adoption of a passive
policy of nonIntervention on behalf of
the assasrUn and his predecessors

i pretty certain the Democrats have

the entire county ticket is elected be
yond doubt
I Summit county has elected Demo
cratic representatives and the sena
I torial district has returned Hon R C
Weber county where they dont
know any better has possibly gone Re
I is confidently believed the Demo
crats will have a working majority in
both branches of the legislature and
consequently a majority on joint ballot
when it comes to the election of a
I United States senator which is of
supreme importance now I
I has been a glorious victory in the
state of Utah and although the silver
men have failed nationally the cause I
is not dead
A Quiet Dajt vith n Full Vote and
3Iueh Scratching
Election day dawned in this city with
threatening weather and flurries of
The polls were opened everywhere
promptly at 7 oclock and during the
early hours Vbijng was very brisk fol
lowed by lulls just before noon and
later in the afternoon with rushes dur
ing the noon hour and about 6 p m
The Australian ballot system tried for
the first time here worked perfectly
The voters seemed to appreciate greatly
the relief from the heelers and ticket
peddlers and the general familiarity
with the system was little less than
remarkable considering the circum
stances I showed that the voters
generally had given the new plan con
siderable study and very few had to
ss2 1 upen UC cisctisn cfllccro for as
sistance in prepainf ir ballots not
withstanding the fact that scratching
was indulged to an extent never be
fore heard or here
Challenges Were few and far between
In a great many precincts not a single
vote was disputed There was no loud
I talk about the polls and no conflicts
The people went about their business
quietly and in only one instance was
I there a genuine election row Strange
ly enough fat was between two wo
men in the old Second municipal ward
The Democrats found themselves
severely handicapped in this city from
I the outset The Republican committee
had secured every conveyance In town
that they could hire and Democrats
were unable to bring their voters to the
polls in carriages They did not need
I any such inducement to get them to
vote however and turned out grandly I I
I As an evidence of this it may be stated
I that in precinct 7 every registered
I Democrat voted in precinct 10 all but
three voted in precinct 24 not one was i
I missed in precinct 39 all but two voted I
in precinct 41 every Democrat except I
r one cast his ballot for Bryan and
r Sewall and so it went all over the city
The Republicans with their army of
workers with carriages succeeded in
bringing out a very full vote too and
it was estimated early in the evening
that 90 per cent of the registered vote
in the city had been polled
The reports of the checkers of both
parties showed when the polls closed
that the Democrats would in all prob
ability have a majority in this coun
ty on the state and legislative tickets
The Democratic ticket soon got to
work and on unofficial returns Chair
man Lloyd claimed that ten precincts
had given the Democrats 1284 votes
the Independent Republicans 571 Mc
Kinley 153 with 916 scratched ballots
These scratched ballots were practi
cally all in favor of the Democratic
On the preliminary count in the
Third municipal ward Chairman Lloy1
claimed it for the Democrats by 500
while the Democrats claimed the
Fourth municipal ward by 300
Kings vote in the city was phenom
enal and very few scratched tickets
went into the box without an X up by
the Democratic candidates name
Scores of Independent Republicans
voted for him and not a few McKin
ley men also gave him their votes
At midnight Chairman Lloyd of the
Democratic committee had received
sufficient returns to make a very close
We have elected every man on the
county ticket he said The lowest
plurality of any candidate will be 1500
and it will run from that to 2000 I
feel quite confident that every candi
date on our legislative ticket Is elected
but if we lose a candidate anywhere
it will be there However there is no
reason to think that the entire legis
lative ticket is not elected
At 12 oclock Chairman Holmes of
the Republican county committee con
Ceded the election of the entire Demo
cratic county ticket with one or two
exceptions Even the Republican
judges were conceded to be defeated
and Gus thought it looked very much
like a landslide
First Mnnlcipnl Ward
In the First municipal ward the vot
ing was much as had been anticipated
by the Democrats The ladles turned
out in great numbers in all the ore
cincts in this ward and In one precinct
cast fully twottiirds of the total vote
LL <
The election was very quiet at all the
precincts there being no disturbances
of any character at any of the voting
places At nearly all the precinct vot
ing places the Republicans had head
quarters established1 a near the polls
as they dared to get and had their
heeler on hand to approach every
voter The tel however were not
t be turned from their intention of
giving Bryan and free slver their in
I port and the ward went almost solidly
for the silver electors Tne Demo
cratic state and county tickets also re
I ceived a good support and showed a
very large gain over the vote of the
last election Scratching very gen
eral especially among the ladies ow
ng to the inclemency of the weather
and the muddy streets the vote was not
as heavy as had been anticipated by
either of the political committees In
the Sixth precinct in this ward there I
were 324 votes cast out of a registration
I of 352 in the Seventh precinct the vote I
was 334 out of a registration of 412 in
the Eighth it was 369 votes out of a I
registration of 436 The other precincts I
averaged about a those mentioned
above Some difficulty was experienced
by the ladies in making out their tick
ets but not much delay was occasioned
except in one or two places On an
average about three voters at each
precinct were prevented from voting
by reason of being challenged At I
some of the voting places the Repub
lican challengers caused considerable
delay by challenging every Democrat
who offered to vote
Second Municipal Ward
Voting In the Second was very quietly
done and considering the weather and
extremely muddy roads on the west
side the percentage of votes cast was I
all that could have been expected I
There was a lack of vehicles for vot
ers on both sides and many women
who otherwise would have turned out
remained at home I
Very few ballots were spoiled and
generally the voters acted d though i i
r they understood the modus operand j
II I was noticed that the women voted j
I early and were at the polls long before I
the men 3Mie ladies indulged in j
scratching a great deal more than the
men In the judgment of the judges I
So far as learned there were no dis
turbances at any of the polling places
At 6 oclock about 3850 votes had been
Condie displayed all the activity i
shown by any candidate in the Second i
hustling for himself from early morn
t > j
Utalis CongressmanElect
until the polls closed Visits by other
candidates were rare
McKinley voters were as rare as
I days in June and wherever one was
I found he voted and said nothing going
I away as soon as this task was fin
I Third Municipal Ward
The voting at all the precincts in
I the Third ward was conducted in a
very quiet and orderly manner There
were very few people about the polling
places besides the election officials The
voters dropped in slowly but steadily
recorded their votes and went away
and there was no rush at any time
The ladles turned out in force equal or
superior to the men As a rule the
Democrats voted the straight ticket
while the Republicans did a heap of
scratching The McKinley Republicans
the Democratic county ticket almost
voted Democratc tcket a
most straight and it was evident be
fore 12 oclock that the Democrats were

In the Thirtysecond Thirtythird
and Thirtyfourth precincts the polling
ing was conducted with the utmost I
harmony and not an incident worthy j
of mention transpired The voters be I
gan coming early and by noon more I
than half the registered vote was In in j
all three of the precincts and at 5j I
oclock in the evening the average vote
remaining to be polled was less than j
onetwelfth of the registration There I
was no excitement in any of these pre I
cincts at any time but considerable
amusement was created by a dodger I
which Candidate Geddes caused to be
distributed I was the Argus edi
torial lauding him for alleged philan i
In the Thirtysixth there was a little
difficulty but it was of a mild nature I
I began when the Democratic judge
failed to show up on time and the two
Republicans swore in another man Be
fore he had fairly seated himself how
ever the regularly appointed man came
in and Democratic Chairman Ridd
thought he ought to be allowed to
serve The Republicans objected but
their man resigned and they were of
necessity obliged to make the best of i
The next disturbance occurred when
George Bolt undertook to vote He had
only lived in the precinct 30 days and
was challenged by Mr Ridd who
stated the circumstances of Mr Bolt
being registered in the precinct They
were to this effect Bolt was raised in
the Thirt fourth precinct and always
lived there until recently when he
moved to the Thirtyfifth Prior to
the rendering of County Attorney
Whittemores opinion that transfers
from one precinct to another were not
legal Bolt had reglsteredUn the Thirty
fourth and wishing to move procured
a transfer to the Thirtyfifth On the
strength of this he was permitted to
swear in his vote His name as re
ported and it is understood steps to
prosecute him will be commenced to
Another incident of the day was an
effort on the part of Josiah Lees to do
I some work for his favorite candidate
Geddes He would follow or accom
pany rather a voter almost to the
I booths urging him or her to vote his
way Chairman Ridd objected but it
I made no difference until he sent to the
sheriffs office for a deputy who al
lowed no buttonholing for the rest of
I the day

I fourth Municipal Ward
I A hard contest was waged in the
Fourth yesterday but the banner
j I Democratic ward maintained its old
i I time position and gave a goodsized
j I majority against the high tariff party
Almost the full vote of both parties
was polled and although the Republic
I ans did not expect to carry the ward
I they worked as hard as if confident of
I success
I Carriages were out early and by i
noon over a third of the total registered
vote had been cast There were no
I contests of note and no enthusiasm was
displayed The absence of any dem
onstration was owing to the fact that
I the result in the Fourth was a fore
gone conclusion
The tents where the precinct party
managers held forth and issued estimates
mates on the result were the scenes of
the greatest animation Hot coffee and
other things gastronomically tempting
were served there through the entire
day Very few challenges were made
and the day was unenlivened by any
of the usual polling place rows
In the Thirtyseventh precinct the
day was particularly quiet By non
167 votes out of the registered total of
350 had been cast and at 6 oclock the
total vote was 331 Of these the Re
publicans claimed 141 and the Demo
crats ISO
The people of the Thirtyeighth pre
cinct at 6 oclock last evening had cast
256 votes the registered total being
282 At noon 166 votes were in of
which the Democrats claimed 100 This
orecinct was the scene of one of the
hardest partisan fights of the day and
an hour before the polls closed both
sides admitted that the result was
doubtful The Democrats however
I conceded 127 to the Republicans and
claimed 129
i The Thirtyninth and Fortieth were
i two of the busiest precincts The vote
hustlers were out early and before
j I noon nearly half of the total registered
I I vote had been deposited in the boxer
I There were 361 votes registered in the
I Fortyfirst precinct I is a Democratic
I precinct and by noon 149 votes or over
t 40 Del cent of the total number had
i been cast I was estimated that SO
of the ballots deposited in the box were
i straight Democratic 56 Republican and
3 doubtful At 6 oclock 322 votes 90
I per cent of the number registered had I
been cast Of this number i is esti
j mated that 191 were straight Demo
cratic and 131 Republican tickets The i j
t polling place was at 215 K street and
1 the Democratic work of the day was i
intrusted to Mrs Dr Ferguson Mrs i
Barton and T F Thomas Mrs Fer
guson and Mrs Barton assisted by
Mrs Mulholland furnished an excel

I the Democrats There was not a ripple i
j of excitement during the entire day
I The polling place of the Fortysecond I
precinct was at 33 K street There
I were 401 votes registered and at noon
141 votes had been cast Of this num I
I ber 90 were Republican and 48 Demo
cratic At 6 oclock 363 votes had been I
cast of which number 192 were Re
I publican and 171 Democratic The
Democrats were badly handicapped in I
I this precinct by a lack of conveyances I
and workers The only excitement dur
ing the day was the challenging of two
I Democratic and one Republican vote
One was challenged on the ground of
nonnaturalization and the others on
alleged change of residence They were
all sworn In Mrs Ann OHva Burt and
Mrs Ann Erskine were in charge of
the Democratic refreshment tent i
