Canal Opening- By an overwhelming^ majority, that will reach the ratio of nearly. 20 to 1, San Francisco has pledged itself to the cause of th» Panama -Pacific Interna tional exhibition, in 1915. By a vote more nearly unanimous than ever be fore was given to any proposition pre sented to the people of this '".city the 18,000.000 bond issue in behalf of the world's fair was authorized yesterday at the polls. The state of California stands pledged this morning to advance $17, 300, 000 in cash to bring the exposition to this city and make it the greatest' event .of 'its kind in* the histbry; of the world. In the hands of California's representa tives in the halls of congress has been placed the most powerful of all weap ons that can be wielded In the contest for the honor of holding the fair — a fund that insures a magnificent.,expo sition enterprise without a cent of gov ernment aid. SAX PRA\n«CO'S SHOAVrXG; As a result of the tremendous - vote cast yesterday In favor of the issuance of J0.000.0Q0 of municipal bonds in aid of the exposition, the following show ing can be made to congress: The citizens of San Francisco " have pledged $7.500. 0<V» in individ ual subscriptions in aid~«~»f'tlie fair. The 1 state 0f California has au thorized a state bond issue of $5,000,000 in aid of the fair. The city of San Francisco has authorized ;'. bond issue of $5,000, 000 in aid of the fair. The entire exposition fund amounts to $17,500,000. 30.000 VOTES CAST Of all the 38 charter amendments presented, to the voters yesterday the exposition bond issue proposition re ceived by thousands the greatest vote, although there were included in the questions at issue several sweeping measures of great importance. On the showing made in the returns received up to midnight It is estimated that the total vote ort the exposition bond issue will approximate 30,000, of which not more than 1,800 votes were cast in op position to the measure. Even this ratio is likely to show a greater vari ance as a result of later returns. Out of only about one-sixth of the total number of precincts in the city, which were all that had been reported in full at midnight, there were several that showed absolutely unanimous votes in favor of the exposition bonds. One of the first complete precincts to be heard from was the twenty-first of the thirty second assembly district, for which the polling place is at Twenty-second and Kentucky streets. The. vote in that precinct on "the" exposition bond, issue was 54 favorable, with none against. Other precincts followed with similar reports. ALL DISTRICTS AID From indications given by the vote in 61 precincts heard from In full out of a total of 252 in the city, there can be no question that the bonds were voted for by magnificent majorities in every precinct in the city. From boun dary to boundary of jSan Francisco the people have pledged themselves to aid the exposition In the most substantial manner. No section or district can claim the honor of having been more instrumental than another in giving support to the great world's fair project. It is the voice of all San Francisco that has spoken, just as the voice of the entire state spoke one week ago.
