When County Detective I.eyshon at

There was no let up to the enthusi

that It was the most enthusiastic elec

being received by 'phone and through

sat over against tho farther wall fac

Never in the history of the city has
there been a quieter election than that
of yesterday; never has there been an
election conducted under more de
lightful climatic conditions and seldom
before has such a large percentage
of the registered voters of the county
turned out to cast their ballots.
The day dawned bright and clear
and when tho polls opened at 7 o'clock
there was hardly a cloud In the sky.
There was just a wee bit of "snap"
in the air und old inhabitants looked
wise and said they couldn't remember
of a pleasanter election day.
The weather continued thus all day.
Never did Old Sol hide his face for
more than a few minutes at a time
and there wns never a moment when
one couldn't have gone without an
overcoa't and not felt uncomfortable.
This is responsible In a large measure
for the large vote recorded. It had
the effect ot bringing out the "stay-at-homes"
In largo numbers.
These are the voters who are always
looking for an excuse to prevent them
from coming to the polls and if the
weather Is the least bit disagreeable
they generally decide not to come out.
LARGE VOTE POLLED.
The vote polled was extremely large
In each und every ward of the city.
Especially was this true In strong Re
publican strongholds lilto tho Ninth,
Second and Seventeenth wards, ami
tills fact was especially agreeuble
news to Republican' workers in those
parts of the city.
Tho largest part of the vote was cast
between 7 and II o'clock in tho morn
ing and between C.30 and 7 o'clock in
the evening. In many of tho districts
half the total vote was polled before 9
o'clock. The fact that all tho mines
are working caused a big vote In many
of the wards ufter 5 o'clock, the men
returning from work stopping to vote
before going home, many appearing
with their coal-begrimmed hands and
As early as 0.30 o'clock; requisitions
were made for extra ballot boxes for
Republican districts. Tho Second and
Third districts ot the Ninth ward
made calls for extra boxes before 10
o'clock. In the afternoon similar re
quisitions were received front the fol
lowing additional districts: Seventh
ward, Second district; Eleventh ward,
First district; Fifth ward, Second dis
trict; Sixteenth ward, Second district;
Thirteenth ward, Second district; Sec
ond ward, Second district.
Next to the largo vote cast, the most
remarkable reature of the election as
fur us the city goes was the vast
amount of splitting done, That few
straight tlckots were being voted was
dlscernable In many of the districts
before S o'clock. When a voter votes
a straight ticket, If he is an intelligent
voter, ho generally spends little time
III the booth.
EVIDENCE OF SPLITTING.
Lass ihun a mluulo and sometimes
half a minute generally suffices to
mark u ballot with a slnglo cross, the
method ndopted In voting u straight
party ticket, When an Intelligent
looking citizen spends two, three or
four minutes in the booth Its reason
able to assume that he Is doing a little
cutting on tho side, and this is exact
ly what scores of intelligent-looking
citizens could be sesn doing In every
part of the city yesterday.
Chairman Davis, of the Republican
county committee, was at headquarters
all morning, but started out early In
tho afternoon for a personal tour of
the West Scranton and North Scrnnton
districts, returning to headquarters

augured well for Republican success.
In the Second district of tho Seven
teenth ward there were 132 votes cast
at 9 o'clock. This waB considered a
wonderful record by Alderman John T.
Howe, who has been on the election
board there for years. The total vote
at last fall's election In this district
was only 203. At 3 o'clock there had
been 2S0 votes cast.
In all the districts of the Ninth ward
the vote was also remarkably large. In
the Second district there had been 221
votes cast at 3 o'clock, out of an aver
age of 300. While a Tribune reporter
was In this booth, which Is located on
Adams avenue, near Olive street, a
passing street car stopped In front of
the door and the motorman jumped off.

the hands of one of the officers and
sprang into a booth.
He wasn't Inside more than ton sec

posited his ballot and rushed for his
car. "Well, that's about the first
straight ticket voted here today," said
Candidate for Jury Commissioner D. J.
Campbell, who was in the booth at the
time, and the others acquiesced.
In the Eighth ward the vote up to 3
o'clock was fairly heavy, and after that
time the election officers were pretty
thoroughly swamped with voters. The
general average in the Second district
Is about 300 votes, and at 6 o'clock 27."
had been cast. In the First district of
this ward 105 votes out of an average
of 250 had been cast at 2.30 o'clock.
The vote in South Scranton was also
exceptionally large. In the First dis
trict of the Eleventh ward at 4.15
o'clock there had been 200 votes polled,
which wns said by the election officers
to bo phenomenal. The Nineteenth
ward got out one of the largest votes
in its history. At 4.20 o'clock there were
254 votes polled in the First district
out of an average of 350, the larger
part of whom on previous occasions
have always voted between 5 and 7
IN NORTH SCRANTON.
Up in North Scranton one of the
largest voles ever recorded was de
posited in the ballot boxes. In the
First district of the Second ward at
it.io mere were 2H cast out ot an
average of 223 and the room was full
of voters waiting their turn. In the
First district ot tho First ward at C
o'clock there were 270 ballots cast out
of a general average of 300. In the
Third ward the vote was also very
The record for quick voting must be
accorded the Second district of the
Thirteenth ward, where there were 77
votes cast up to S o'clock. This Is an
average of over ona a minute and Indi
cated that very little cutting was
being done and that tho citizens were
living up to their record and voting
the straight Republican ticket, In the
Tenth ward nearly 300 of an average
of 400 votes hail been cast at 3.30
o'clock and they were still coming in.
