Election day broke clear and cold, making weather conditions favorable to getting out a large vote, although in some instances the lack of local contests served to keep down the vote. Participation by women in the presidential election for the first time was expected to add about 15,000 to the normal vote in a presidential year. James Hartness of Springfield, the Republican nominee for governor, wil probably run ahead of the presidential ticket of his party, while United States Senator William P. Dillingham of Waterbury, Representative Frank L. Greene of St. Albans and Repre sentative Porter H. Pale of Brighton, all Republicans, will be sent back to Congrtss by substantial majorities. A solidly Republican Senate waa looked for and the usual overwhelming Re publican majority in tjje House at Montpelier. The fact 4hat Calvin L. Coolidge, the Republican candidate for vice-presi dent, is a native of Vermont heightened the interest of vermontera in the Republican- national ticket. A marked endorsement of Coolidge as a tribute to a favorite son waa expected. Only once in 60 years has Vermont failed to return a large majority. That exception was in 1912 when Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft divided the Republican support, the latter securing by a scant plurality of 1.200 over Roosevelt, with Wilson poll ing about the normal Democratic vote. From that low ebb of Republican strength in Vermont the majorities for the Republican national ticket ranged as high us a 37,860 majority for Mc kinley over .Bryan m isub. 1 he polls close m the town rcprer seutative election at 3 o'clock and on the state and national election at o'clock. In Barre the vote was expected to be comparatively light heeause of. the lack of pre-election campaiign. Workers for William Wishart, the Republican can didate for city representative, and H. S. Parks, Democratic candidate, were buy, however, and tbe lately awak ened interest in that contest waa a- that saved the local election from the doldrums. The indications in the early afternoon were that the representative contest would be very clos.
