S2.-A deci sion of the appellate court handed down today apparently Insures a majority for Woodrow Wilson In California 'of about ISO votos, and nearly all, If not all, of tho electors sent by the state to tho electoral college. The court prder, while taking up In do tall every point In the election contro versy which has waged hero for nearly three weeks, decides especially that In ono precinct In Pasadena and ono In Los Angeles only tho votes for A. J. Wallace, the head elector on the progressive tic ket, and Thomas J. Griffin, tho head elector on the democratic ticket, may be counted, because In checking nil the other electors In1 thoso precincts the election boards kept no tally of the votes cast, merely certifying tho totals. This the court held to be an error Invalidating thoso votes. The two precincts together gavo Roose velt a majority of about 200 votes, Aa with this number included the majority in tho state fori Wallace, tho highest Roosevelt elector, stood only forty to. night, It seemed Inevitable that with the exception of Wallace tho Itoosevclt elect ors In tho state mu6t ho defeated.
