Alexander was the candidate of the good government forces and Karri- man of a socialist element that nom- inated him largely because of n speech Tie made proclaiming the in- nocence of the McNamaras long he- fore the case against the dynamiters was called for trial. The strength shown bir women voto in proportion to their registered was one of the surprises of the day.

Good government people were suspicious about the light vote on the east side and were inclined to think that for some reason the socialists were hold- ing back in the precincts they felt sure of.

Not only were they out but the reports we have received show that in many 'precincts the women outvoted the men in the first two hours. have received no reports of disorder but on the con- the women received the most courteous treatment everywhere. The voting which were conducted during the have been justi- fied by the results shown. The wo- men went to the polls prepared to vote and apparently had little diffi- culty.

The judge said that he be- lieved he owed it to the public to make a statement of facts which led up to the men confessing and the end- ing of promised to be a long trial. He also said that he wanted to correct a statement which appeared In a local paper over the signature of Lincoln Steffens. In the statement he demies that Steffens had anything U do with causing the men to change their pleas to saying that the causv was the events which transpired just ha- fore they made the plea. He said that the district attorney could had the pleas weeks before if he would release John J. McNamara aud sentence only James B. to death.
