"We have made a belter showing than four years ago, in spite of the advance of the La Follette movement in other Mr. Phillips declared, "so we feel we have demonstrated that Wisconsin has at least not be- come stronger for La Follette than before. That is most we could hope." The returns from Wisconsin will not be definite for several days, for the count is by paper ballot, and many precincts are remote and blockaded by bad weather.

With a flood of nonpartisan ballots Milwaukee voters swept from office the city's widely known Socialist ad ministration, installed nonpartisan mayor, board of aldermen and couutj board of supervisors and probablj eliminated every national political party from participation in future mu nicipal elections in the state of Wis consin. For, as a result of the nonpartisan victory In Milwaukee, the state legis- lature at a special session to be con- vened is expected to pass a distinctly nonpartisan city election statute.

I am proud or the tact that there are more Social- sts in Milwaukee than in any other city in the United States and predict hat two years from today the number tvill have doubled.

'We are coming back stronger than ever next said Mayor Seidel. 'We are going to recover our voices first. Then we are going back Into the struggle and fight as we never 'ought before. What we have done jefore we can do again." Alderman R. T. Jieims, a Socialist eader, said defeat was due to lack of a German Socialist newspaper. "If the Social Democratic party had iad a German daily in Milwaukee dur- ng the last two weeks we would have had the support of the entire German population and could have beaten the combined vote of the two old said Alderman Melms.

CLOSE English Miners Finish Balloting on Coal Strike. April balloting of the miners on the question of ter- minating the coal strike has finished.

Meanwhile more than miners have already resumed work and if the decision is against restarting the mines it is certain thousands of men vho are desirous of working will dis- regard it.
