SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 9.—Charles
B. Hugbes had cut down President
Wilson's lead in California to 2,623
on the face of returns received by
the United Press from 5,647 precincts
out of 5,877 In the state.
Hughes has 450,657 and Wilson
453,019 in these precincts. The new
est returns consisted of ninety-seven

In I«o« Angelee precincts Hughes had
a big advantage over Wilaon, and this
enabled him to cut down the presi

precincts to be heard from in Los
Angeles county and Hughes Is expect
ed to get a majority of these. Dem
