Wealth and Dives Go For Seymour EXPECTED I_.XI>SIiIDE l-'OH SPECIAL INTEREST CANDIDATE FAILS IX) MATERIALIZESEOOXI) ELECTION IN two WEEKS —M—_—— ———-————, There was no election yesterday. Mr. Harth, the socialist, was eliminated, however, and now tho people will go into a final death grapple with the special interests. And the people, Judging from the results yesterday, will win. The shrewdest political game ever engineered by the -genial In terests was worked yesterday in the campaign for Mr. Seyn_our hut he could not get a majority. With s,t'.t;."i votes he Lacked Just 1,000 of having a majority. It is doubtful if he can ever poll as many .again. An analysis of the vote shows that Seymour carried the sec tions of the city where the special interest owners live and whero tho saloon and tenderloin elements hold sway. When this fact dawns on tho great army of women who were deceived Into sup porting Seymour they will desert him like citizens fleeing from the plague. W. W. Seymour was nominated to catch tho women vote. He was picked 'because he was personally reputed to be a "nice man." When the Interests want to put one over on the people they always pick a popular Idol or a "nice man" to be the figurehead. When the saloon Is seeking to win It does not put up a "tramp" but the cleanest man it can find who will servo It. And the saloon and special Interest factions in Taco ma nominated W. W. Seymour. They Immediately stepped Into the background after starting a num ber of workers to shouting "clean man" and .they expected the preachers and women to do the rest. Women Deceived. Thousands of women were de ceived by tho trick, being new at tho political game. But not enough were fooled to win the election for Seymour. Of the 8,605 votes cast for Sey mour not more than 3,000 of them were cast by men. At every poll ing place women who were blinded to the real issues In the campaign by looking at the "nice man" can didate worked all day yesterday almost tearfully begging the wom en in the precincts to vote for Seymour because he Is a "nice man." Women Wero Sold Out. And now the figures of the elec tion tell (lie story that the women were sold out. They show that W. W. Seymour, posing as the "moral candidate," was backed by the sa loons as had been repeatedly stat ed in the Times. He carried a majority or the slum precincts. He won In all the wards whero the slums and the aristocrats rule, and in several wards whero the great middle class live enough women were de ceived to give him a majority. He carried the Seven slum pre cincts in tho Third ward over Fawcett by 432 to 875. Sandberg Precinct. In the second precinct, which is ' notorious because of saloon dom i lnation, Seymour carried 61 to •40. In the sixteenth precinct, ' which is now the tenderloin pre ■ cinct, and Includes the Kentucky ; hotel of Pete Sandberg, to which 1 his brothel women flew when tney ' were routed from tho Globe and Standard hotel, Seymour carried it against Fawcett 45 to 36. In the ' third precinct, taking in many of ' the saloons in the Third ward, Seymour carried 88 to 66. In the sixth precinct, which takes In the line of doggeries down toward the depot, Seymour had it over Faw cett by 79 to 63. Ho carried the slum precinct of the Fourth ward, taking in the notorious Garfield hotel. He was the saloon candidate and It show ed plainly not only In the work in the saloons before the election but it Is demonstrated in the elec tion figures. And the saloon never makes mistakes in politics in a battlo of I this kind. Subsidized Press. These facts are certain to turn the tide against the special Inter est candidate and the people will now see why the tremendous cam paign was made by the subsidized press which scattered free papers all over town for days before the election full of misstatements and deceptive arguments, to mislead the new voters who never before have been up against these Im moral and self-seeking political forces in Tacoma. ' . Seymour carried the First, Sec ond, Third, Seventh and Eighth wards of Tacoma. - - - ' -y ■*•.*' The Third was given him by the slums, the First and Second by the aristocrats back of the special In 30 CENTS A MONTH. * ■ a terests and the Seventh and Eighth ho got by very narrow mar. gins, duo to the deception prac tised on tho women in these ward.). Fawcett carried the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth wards. Bart*-, the socialist, was second ln tha Sixth, very close to Seymour In the Fourth and very close to Sey mour In tho Fifth. Tho Barth voto in these three wards of tho common people alone would have added 2,186 to tho Fawcett vote and would have given him a ma jority over all and re-elected him. Not For Seymour. It Is conceded that this voto cannot go to Seymour and It will lie with Fawcett In the next elec tion. Of the total vote of 3,303 for Barth it is safe to estimate that not more than tho 300 will ever go to Seymour. The rest will go to Fawcett, who stands for municipal ownership, which Is MM of tho things that is helping to develop tho socialistic Idea In this country. Seymour's tremendous vote In the silk stocking Second ward and the aristocrat precincts of tna First ward show how determined the corporato Interests were to come back Into power in Tacoma. He had almost threo to one In tfia Second ward over both other can didates. Ho had over two to one over both In tho First ward, and in one silk stocking precinct about flvo to one over both. The figures in the election yes terday help tremendously in show ing tho real issues in the cam paign. They show that tho sa loon and special Interest crowds were linked together to elect Sey mour for their own private ends. The people aro now onto tho game. All the hypocritical deceptions of the subsidized organs and tho smooth talk of agents of the spe cial Interests on the stump will not rub out the facts as revealed by the election figures. But those figures still show In the Fawcett and Barth votes that a majority of Tacoma men ana women can be relied upon In the fight against prlvil; for tho few and domination by greed and Immorality Sandberg For Mr. Seymour Pete Sandberg, the notorious dive keeper, was among the prom inent Seymour workers yesterday. Sandberg realizes that Commis sioner Roys was adverse to clos ing the dives and knows that with Fawcett in the mayoralty chair, tho dive days are over. With part of the church voto combined with.tho Sandberg ele ment, Fawcett's chances of return ing to office at a first election were spoiled yesterday. 9 news Items from ~~f iMiWS ITEMS FROM bek THE IIICKTOWN BEB • — _, a Miss Lydette Tyler gave, a baked bean social at her home last eve. £X?. rX-,o<, had a good time except Will Blttercait. who don't like beans.
