Final Outcome of Big Election Now Controlled By LiDle Word "IF" OFFICE OF CONGRESSMAN FROM THIRD DISTRICT CLAIMED BY BOTH CANDIDATES The afternoon of this the second day following the election of Nov ember 7th finds the situation tense and with nothing positive as to the election of a national president or a congressman from the Third District of Louisiana. The maze of telegrams sent out by campaign managers in both national and district elections convey only the information that one of the closest elections in the history of a state and nation was held on Tuesday. The democratic nominee for Con gress from this district, Wade O. Martin, was in Morgan City last night enroute to Thibcdaux and while here gave out the statement that he had undoubtedly defeated his opponent, Whit P. Martin, the Pro gressive candidate. Mr Martin said he was assured of a lead of at least 190 votes. Telegraphic advices today, however, still leave the choice of a congressman undecided and only the fact remains that the winner and loser will be separated by a very scant vote. The presidential situation is still an uncertain quantity. Both sides have desisted emphatic claims of cer tainty in the race and the common position of each of the parties, as far as their statements concerning the outcome is concerned, is hedged be hind a little word fraught with meaning. The little word is "IF." If Wilson carries several of the states still to give in complete re turns, he will be elected. If Hughes can add the electoral vote from these same states to his accumulated votes, he will be the winner. But few of the states are yet to give out complete returns and on the vote of EVERYTHING IN READINESS FOR HIE BEAUTIFUL FLOWER-SHOW Handsome Decorations and Elegantly Displayed Ferns, Plants and Flowers Await Yon. An Oil Painting Will be Given to Some Luck' Visitor. Tomorrow, Friday the 10th, the 1916 Morgan City Flower Show opens in the City Hall. Friday the 10th and Saturday the 11th—for two days only—the Flower Show will be in full blast. Today, the City Hall is the scene of great activity and preparation. Busily the committees, like veritable bees, buzz from flower to flower and steadily the green and tinted aval anch of flowers and ferns and rare plants are assembled from their con fused masses of indiscriminate groups into classes and varieties in telligently and artistically arranged in order that the visitors may en joy them to the fullest degree. From one end of the city to the other, cars and carriages and carts, laden with floral and plant contribu tions from many homes, hurried and scurried with their fragrant burdens to the City Hall. Committees were everywhere in response to the hund reds of offers of citizens to furnish some item or the exhibition. This re sponse clinches the expectation for a Flower Show which will be a greater success than any previous displays attempted in Morgan City. i California, New Hampshire, North Dakota, New Mexico and Minnesota hangs the final outcome. Wilson managers lay positive claim to 251 electorial votes. Hughes managers are certain of 243 electoral votes. IF these figures are truthful, then Wilson has the edge on the situation and if he carries California and one other of the states mentioned he will have secured the additional votes necessary to win. Mr. Hughes occu pies the same nervous position with the exception that he will need all of the undecided states except Califor nia, or that he must have California and two of the other named states. Wire reports from California are steady in their statements that Wil son is leading in California. Mid night messages from the west gave Wilson a lead in this state of ten I thousand. It appears from later tele grams that the country votes turned ! in since that hour have reduced Wil I son's lead to 4500. Telegraphic advices are to the ef fect that Hughes is ahead in New Mexico by the small lead of 250 with a number of precincts to be heard from. The Secretary of State has handed out the statement that Wilson has carried New Hampshire by 121 votes. It is his opinon that California is also safe for Wilson. Reports from North Dakota gives Wilson a lead of about 600 votes. Minnesota is reported safe in the Hughes column by a 500 majority. Another factor in deciding the winner of the presidential election is said to be the soldier votes on the border. Several thousand soldiers whose homes are in the northern (Continued on last page) One of the interesting features of the Exhibition will be the awarding of a beautiful painting in oil by Mr. C. S. Gray of Morgan City. Mr. Gray's artistic offering will be given to some entrant to the Flower Show and every person who pays his ten cents for an admission to the Flower Show will have an opportunity to be come owner of the beautiful painting contributed by Mr. Gray.
