Pan Francisco fell Into line with the
country at large yesterday and rolled
up a good lead for Wilson over Roose
velt. At midnight the canvass of 600
of the 657 precincts In this city gave
WJlson 43,158 and Roosevelt 34.101. It
was estimated that Wilson would carry
San Francisco by about 10,000.
The progressive candidates probably
carried 6 of the 13 assembly districts.
2 senatorial districts and 1 congres
sional district.
One of the closest and hardest waged
fights in the city was that between Ed
ward I. Wolfe and Edwin Grant for the]
senate in the nineteenth district. The
X.test figures showed that 56 of the 66
precincts in the district gave Grant
4.442, against 4,324 for Wolfe. Many of
the progressives in the district worked
openly for Grant, the democrat, to de
feat Wolfe, who remained loyal to Taft-
Kahn defeated Schlesinerer. his demo,
cratic opponent. * for congress in the
fourth district. John I. Nolan, on the
bull moose ticket, defeated Stephen Cos
tello, his democratic opponent, in the
tifth congressional district.
In the assembly fights Bush in the
twenty-sixth and Schmitt in the thirty
first, the two Taft men who won re
publican nominations, have won the
election. Ford, democrat, has evidently
defeated Kennedy, progressive, in the
twenty-second district. Richardson,
democrat, has a lead over Wentworth,
progressive, in the twenty-ninth dis
trict. Gillson. progressive, was de
feated by Shannon, democrat, in the
thirty-second district. Walsh, demo
crat, has beaten White, progressive, in
the twenty-seventh district. Hench,
progressive, was defeated by McCarthy,
democrat, in the twenty-fifth district,
the'latest figures being 3,581 to 2.842.
of ihe eight propositions submitted
to the voters of the state all apparently
have been defeated with the exception
nf two. These provide for free text
hooks and for the authorization of the
depositing of the bonds of irrigation
districts as security for public funds.
The returns, although partial and in
complete, indicate that the consolida
tion amendment, which would make
possible a greater San Francisco and a
greater Los Angeles, has been defeated.
There is no question about the de
feat of the Initiative measure provid
ing for the establishment of a racing
commission and authorizing paris mu
tuel and auction pool betting on races.
Home rule taxation has also fared
badly throughout the state, the voters
having indicated their wish that there
be no further change in the scheme of
taxation In this state for the present.
The three referendum measures
which were forced through the last
legislature with a view to depriving
<**ounty Clerk Cook of Alameda county
of patronage by creating a registrar
of voters have apparently met a de
clatvc defeat. By resorting to the ref
erendum Cook has thwarted the pro
gressives of Alameda county, who

STATE BY 25,000
John O. Davis, democratic state chair
man, telegraphed at 9 o'clock to the
national committee headquarters in
New York:
"Wilson has carried California by
25,000 votes."
At 10 o'clock ha said:
"I've been claiming the state by from
20,000 to 25,000 ever since the returns
commenced to come in. and I see no
reason for changing my opinion. We j
are getting a much stronger vote than
we expected in many counties.
"Wilson is now assured of victory in
San Diego county by 3,000 votes. We
expected a majority of half that many.
He will carry Monterey county by 500,
which we expected to lose by 250, and
he will carry Santa Clara by 1.000 or
more, which we expected to lose by
1,500. Many other counties are run
ning the same way."
Gavin McNab, who spent the evening
in the state central committee head
quarters, was not so optimlstfc.
"The result will b« very close." he
said at 10 o'clock. ' "I have estimated
Roosevelt's victory in L*os Angeles at
not less than 20,000 and Wilson's in
San Francisco at 10,000. That re
quires us to overcome Los Angeles and
Alameda with the Wilson lead in the
northern counties. It will be very
close indeed."
Mrs. Gertrude Atherton. the novelist,
who aided in the Wilson flght In Cali
fornia, heard the returns at the demo
cratic headquarters. She was pleased
over the national victory of the* demo
crats, but was most Interested in Cali
"If California doesn't go for Wilson,
it will be such a blow to woman suf
frage," she said. "It will show that
women ar e gullible, hysterical and
heedless in the use of their fran
chise, and will be a blow to suffrage
in both this country and England.
Thousands of splendid women voted
for Wilson, it is true. but if the state
is lost they will not get the credit for
Former Mayor Edward Robeson Tay
lor viewed the victory from the stand
point of the third term defeat. He
"By the defeat of Theodore Roosevelt,
the third term ambition has been ended
forever in this country.
"The election of Wilson has put the
democratic party upon the greatest test
of its life. The responsibility will
rest entirely upon the party to do
the things that are imperatively needed,
or to sink out of sight and leave the
road clear for a third party, which will
be based on broader foundations and be
governed by saner and more constitu
tional methods than any proposed by
Colonel Roosevelt.' ,
Daniel A. Ryan, chairman of the local
progressive organization, issued the fol
lowing statement at 11:20 o'clock last
"It looks as if we will win California.
We have lost the northern counties
with the exception of Alameda and
Humboldt. The south indicates a ma
jority of about 30.000 for Roosevelt,
and if the anticipated plurality is cor
rect, It will offset the northern vote,
and we will carry by a small margin.
"While it is apparent we have lost
the fight In the nation, nevertheless,
the people have won a great victory.
The progressive movement has awak
ened the people of the United States as
never before. It has brought them to
realise that more important than the
trust and the tariff question is the
condition of the plain people, of the
working man. the woman who has to
work for a living and the little child.
"It has brought before the people the
real conditions of the millions of in
dividuals who are now downtrodden
by the great moneyed industries of the
country and it is sure to bring re

Dr. Julian Waller, a physician living
at the Palace hotel and a prominent
campaigner for the bull moose ticket,
lost his vote yesterday by a trick
played by Joseph A. Chanslor, the mil
lionaire oil operator.
Monday evening Chanslor pretended
to .be seriously ill. He had Doctor
Waller called to his apartments. No
remedy suggested by the physician
seemed to meet the needs of the pa
tient. Finally Chanslor declared from
his bed of sickness:
"I need a rest and a change. I bet
you if you and I swapped votes on the
election I would feel better."
Doctor Waller agreed to make the
exchange and promised to vote as
Ohanslor would do. Yesterday, when
the pplls had been opened, the oil
operator explained to the physician
that he had no vote, not having regis
tered.* Waller and the bull moose
ticket each lost a vote.

Great Throng Watches Election
News and Entertainment Com
bined by Modern Method
The Call easily led all its competi
tors last night in both the excellence
and the popularity of its bulletin serv
ice, giving the results of the election
throughout the country. Its bulletins
came in early and were displayed
promptly and clearly. Market street in
front of the tall 'Call building was
crowded from dusk, when the bulletins
began to appear, until long after the
main results were known. The thou
sands who watched them cared nothing
for the rain, which cast no damper
upon their spirits, however moist the
atmosphere. >
From the Magee building across the
street two bright beams of light shone
on the building, one on the huge bul
letin scroll showing the returns as fast
as they came in, the other playing on
a moving picture screen—a novelty in
such bulletin service which was hugejy
enjoyed by the spectators.
Between the bulletins of election re
turns the moving pictures depicted
scenes in the recent campaign, with the
rival candidates in characteristic poses,
such as Roosevelt and Taft and Wilson
addressing audiences from grandstands
in cities and towns and from the plat
forms of railway trains. These politi
cal scenes were interspersed with
amusing skits of various kinds, which
kept the crowds in a mirthful spirit.
Cheers were mingled with laughter,
interest with entertainment.
The early hours at which The Call
returns were received and displayed
caught the appreciative onlookers, who
collected in dense packs in front of The
Call bulletins. Good nature prevailed
everywhere, in spite of crowding and
the downpour. Young and old, men and
women, stood for hours in the street
and watched the succession of figures
that told the tale of the nation's choice
for chief executive and for lesser offi
cials. These figures were received and
transmitted and displayed by a corps of
trained and experienced telegraphers,
stenographers and telephone and mov
ing picture operators in The Call bureau
in the Magee building. A bulletin was
displayed within a few seconds after its
receipt over the wires, distancing all
rivals and giving the latest and most
complete returns.
It was a cheery crowd that filled Mar
ket street. As a candidate showed a
marked lead, applause came from thou
sands of throats, for every candidate
had a goodly following. When the elec
tric lights were suddenly extinguished
to announce the election of Wilson a
prolonged cheer arose from the happy
democrats, and the supporters of the
other candidates smiled in good natured
resignation. Everybody was pleased
with The Call bulletin service, however
disappointed some might have been
with the verdict of the ballots.
But the interest did not languish with
the determination of the presidential
contest. The races for congress, for the
bench, for the state legislature and for
the amendments to the state constitu
tion all served to hold the crowds, and
thousands stayed out in the street,
scorning the rain, until the bulletins
ceased at a late hour.
AH agreed, if not by word of mouth
at least by gratified expression, that
The Call bulletin service was like The
Call news service—first and best.

With complete returns from 480 out
of 657 voting precincts of the city
in by 1 o'clock last night it was
apparent that Superior
Coffey and Mogan, all incumbents,
would be returned to the bench for an
other term, and reasonably sure that
Judge Lawlor, the fourth incumbent,
would go back with them. Their vote
was: Graham 47.369. Coffey 44,191, Mo
gan v 40,254. Lawlor St«SSS.
The struggle for the fourth place was
close between Judge William P. Lawlor,
incumbent, and Edward P. Shortall, now
a police judge, who made a hard fight
for the nomination in the primaries.
The lead of those two men shifted dur
ing the evening. At 11 o'clock, with 200
precincts reported complete, Shortall led
Lawlor by 13.411 to 13,150. but the re
port of the next 150 precincts that ap
peared put Lawlor in the lead over the
police judge with 24.883 to 24,285. Law
lor continued to gain. Tn the 480 pre
cints his vote was 36,535 to 35.521 for
Phortall. That gain indicates Lawlor's
Deasy, sixth in the race, also a police
judge, will not figure in the finals by
any means. Miss Lucy Goode White, who
was nominated by the socialist party,
was not admitted to the bar by the ap
pellate court and could not have quali
fied as a judge, if elected. Pohli, the
other candidate, withdrew his name
from consideration several weeks ago.
LEAD OF 10,000
John I. Nolan, elected to congress
from the fifth district, at 11 o'clock last
night stated that his majority over
Stephen Costello would be from 8,000 to
10,000. "I base these figures," he said,
"on the results obtained from the
strongholds of Costello, where I have
beaten him 2to 1 The districts where
I expect to poll the largest votes have
not been heard from at this time."

CINCINNATI, 0.. Nov. s.—Returns
from 1,100 precincts out of the 5,211

Taft 50,575 and Roosevelt 34.069, mak

it is believed, will receive approximate
ly the same plurality for governor, and
it is believed virtually the entire demo

Of the 22 congressional candidates It
is believed all but two democrats were
elected. The election of Nicholas Long

a republican for president. President
Taft and Colonel Roosevelt ran about
even. The legislature appeared, on
early returns, to be unchanged. This
would indicate the election of a re

ceed Senator W. Murray Crane.
Governor Wilsons strength In Bos
ton today exceeded that of Colonel
Roosevelt and President Taft combined,
the latter two almost evenly dividing
the vote received by Taft four years
