LIGHT VOTE CAST-RESULT OF ELECTION IN DOUBT Claims of Campaign Managers Very Conservative, Acuff Badly Knifed Where Thought Strongest, Daggett Hit by Socialist Vote-Bungay is Running Strong in Union Park. The election la doubtful. If Floyd Daggett comes to the Riv erside precincts with an even break he Is elected. The indications are that in the cor poration precincts Acuff's plurality is cut down sp far thnt he can not overcome the straight vote. In this event Daggett Is elected. Chairman Alex Winston claims the election of Daggett by 850 plurality over Acuff. The Spokesman-Review- Acuff party claims Acuff will have a majority of 500 votes. Belmont precinct has cut down the usual republican majority to about 20 for Acuff. The Fourth ward entire Is giving Acuff hut n hare majority. Jack Snyder Is defeated. Gray and Baldwin are rated as de fented and Peet ami Galusha are the winners. In Fninn Park the socialists claim to have carried the day, but the close estimates show that Leonard Fuik, the democratic candidate for coun cil man, has won. Rlake precinct Is solidly for Dag gett, and from the FlFfth ward the estimates are that Daggett has car ried, as has (Sggleaton, but with the defeat of the democratic councilman predicted. Pratt'B friends are still claiming the election of himself, but the neigh borhood vote Is something that can not be estimated because of the scratches. The Lllienthal vote will not go over 800. Bungay will show stronger. The Browns addition precincts, as estimated, have given Acuff a lead over Daggett less than was predicted by the republican managers. The Third ward is in the doubtful list 50.., tar ns the mayoralty candi dates are concerned. With three exceptions the saloon vote waul solidly for Daggett. It is estimated that UOO labor votes have been cast for Daggett, More than (100 votes of the athletic club membership have gone to Dag gett.

Through the wide streets littered with the dlrl of Lllienthal and his men scattering tlie dodgers and slips of the man whom Roosevelt re sembles the early workers waded to their different stations bent on start ing the voting with a big rush. The Acuff men did not appear to gather with the vim of those who are working for Daggett anil all day the same difference in the hustling abil ities was noticeable. Early in the morning It became evi dent that the belter registration work of the democrats was going to have a weighty bearing on the results nnd tt is. this registration that the Dag gett men are now betting upon.

He wua slutted for the back door. Counsel Dudley ns to the counting of the ballots, This opinion is to be followed tonight and will undoubted ly result In an extra delay In receiv ing the returns. In his opinion the corporation coun sel said: "It will be noted that by the pro visions of sections 4824, 4825 and 4826, four things nre especially en- Joined: The counting of the ballots must be commenced as soon as the polls are closed; there must be no adjournment; the ballot box must not be removed from the room In which the election was held; the ballots must be taken out one by one, and opened, read and counted as so taken out. Three not uncommon practices nre by these statutes forbidden: An adjournment for dinner or supper be fore beginning the count, the removal of the ballot box to some more con venient point for the purpose of mak ing tlie count, and the taking out of all the ballots and segregating the straight ballots before beginning the Official count. Each of these practices, frequently adopted for convenience, has been proven by experience to open tlie door to frauds In the count, nnd they are all prohibited by the statutes of Washington. These pro hibitions should be carefully observ ed, since a violation of the law In these regards may result In the vote of the entire precinct being thrown out, lv addition to exposing the of ficers of the precinct election board to penalties for malconduct in their office." Tlie most surprising event of the day was the unexpected antagonism lo Fred Baldwin in the Second ward. Karly in the morning the upper precincts began to knife Baldwin, lv tin- afternoon the lower end of the ward turned against Baldwin anil started a Scratch campaign Which is In.mid to result In the election of PePet ai.d possibly Galusha.
