With re turns from little more than one-tenth of the state at ;hand, the indications at 9 o'clock tonight were that Cali fornia today had refused to grant equal suffrage to women, but had by emphatic' vote made the initiative and referendum and the recall, the latter including the judiciary, part of its organic act. Twenty three proposed amendments to the constitution of the common wealth were voted upon today. Of these the three mentioned aud the proposition to make the state rail road commission an appointive body and empowering the legislature le gally to enlarge the powers of the board, overshadowed in public inter est all the rest. . The last named, according to the early returns, had carried. Returns up to 9 o'clock showed 8,635 votes for women suffrage, with 8,908 against. The initiative and referendum on the other band showed a favorable vote of 10,810 with but 3,619 against it, while the recall, not withstanding the bitter fight made against it by leading republican pa pers, was favored with eveu more emphasis, 11,281 votes being recorded in its favor and 3,467 against it. Railroad commission amendments were favored by a vote of 8,179 for and 4,683 against. Southern California voted heavily in fayor of granting suffrage to wo men, probably by at least 8,000. But in'San Francisco and other bay coun ties a majurity was poilcJ ugaiust the proposed amendment. Today's election carried to i con clusion the campaign for reform measures started by Gov. Johuon and the last legislature which was "progressive" republican. Johnson's election and the election of the legislature followed the adop tion by the state of a direct primary law. Governor Johnson stumped the state in advocacy of the proposed constitutional amendments. One unique feature of the cam paign was the prominence wnicn the question of woman suffrage took It was thought when the campaign was started that the recall, with the judiciary involved, and the initiative and referendum would engross public attentiou But the enthusiasm with which the women of the state enter ed into the campaign for woman suf frage practically made that question overshadow everything else during the closing days. San Francisco, Oct. 12. Woman's suffrage has triumphed in California Straggling returns late today wiped out the majority previously recorded against the amendment, and since this turn of the tide, the margin, favoring the amendment has increas ed steadily.
