Re turns received Wednesday morning in dicated a turn in the trend which dur ing the preceding evening had been towards Justice Hughes, giving sever al of the doubtful states to the presi dent. This morning he has. apparent ly beyond question, ten votes more than the 266 electoral votes necessary to elect. In addition to this margin of four, President Wilson is leading in Michigan and New Jersey, two states which were supposed to be solidly for Hughes. In Michigan, with reports from 705 precincts out of a total of 2260, Wilson ^ ea( T w 'tli 85,004 to Hughes 55984. New •J° rse J' has given Wilson 198,687 and Hushes 190,358 in 1710 precincts out °Y ^459. New Mexico will, apparently, 1 lined up in the Wilson column, al j though in the 338 precincts reported ou t °T a total of 625, Wilson and Hughes arc running nearly even, Hughes having at this time, a margin of only 114 votes. Delaware has been placed in the Hughes column, as will be noted by the TIMES' table, although the latest re p 0r t received was that "late returns \ indicate Hughes will carry Delaware by between 800 and 1000." Oregon is also given to Hughes, who leads Wil ; son's 9,9,704 by but 9.994 votes in the In California 1264 precincts gives 1 Wilson 60,734 and Hughes 59,000. The ] trend there seems to be towards Wil son. Idaho has been placed in the i Wilson column, he being ahead of Hughes by 200 votes of the first 12,000 counted. The race in Connecticut is close, 1210 precincts giving Hughes 102,266 and Wilson 96,147. Indiana has been conceded to Hughes. In this state he 1 572 precincts reported. had 184,179 against Wilson s 176,185, in 2475 precincts out of a total of 3142. In Iowa Hughes lead easily. 817 pre-. cincts out of 2297 giving Hughes 113, 134. and Wilson 89,685. Massachusetts gave Hughes 241,911 and Wilson 224, 509 in 1082 precincts. New York City went for Wilson, but the strong Re publican state threw the state to Hughes. The vote in Ohio was close, Wilson getting 200,861 to Hughes' 190,922 In 2280 precincts out of 5570. Kansas ran Wilson 109,409 and Hughes 95,582 In 734 out of 2474 precincts. Wilson swept Colorado with 60.792 against Hughes' 39,103 in 183 precincts out of a total of 1454. Likewise in Utah, Wilson polled 24,321 to Hughes' 14, 870, in 662 precincts out of 1138. Min nesota is apparently lined up solidly for Wilson, the president getting 30, 924 votes to Hughes' 26,375, in 415 pre cincts out of 3024. Fifty of these pre cincts are in Hennepin county, In which Minneapolis is situated; fifty one are in Ramsey county, of which St. Paul is the county seat. Missouri gave Wilson 215,062, Hughes 202,298, in 1846 precincts out of 3459. In 197 precincts out of 1759, Nebraska gave Wilson 21,631, Hughes 17,074. Mon tana is going for Wilson if 121 pre cincts out of 1239 tell any story, Wil son getting 15,100, Hughes 9,857. Wilson's managers are claiming West Virginia and Indiana. Arizona seems to be anybody's state. New York and Chicago papers, ear ly in the evening, gave the election to Hughes, and large demonstrations took place. Local Republicans en gaged the band to assist in their dem onstration. About 2 o'clock in the morning returns from the doubtful states began to show a strong Wilson sentiment that was unsuspected ear lier in the night, and by morning it was clear that Wilson would succeed himself at the White House, SUGAR FACTORY PUIS OUT fIRST PRODUCT Local Stores Have on Exhibition Ini tial Output of Million Dollar Twin Falls Plant. Considerable interest has been aroused during the past week among the people of Twin Falls in the several attractive exhibits in local grocery and confectionery stores of the first load of beet sugar to be turned out by the Amalgamated Sugar company's million dollar factory. The product has every appearance of being up to the highest standard, and much favor able comment has been made on the quality of the sugar. The new mar chinery in the factory has delayed somewhat the appearance of the first product as considerable time was nec essary to clean out all the pipes and machines and get them in smooth run ning order. This trouble has now bee^ overcome and it is expected that the Tactory will soon be running at its fullest capacity. Both parties kept up the battle until the end in this county.
