BURY MAY BE PROMOTED Tonight, shortly, after eiglit o'clooit tlie results of one of the hottest election campaigns ever fouglit in Lethbridge will be Icnown. Tlie polls close at si.\', and judging by the large num-. ber of votes polled, it will be at least eight o'clocis before the returning ollicers can conclude their work: of counting the ballots. Every kind of vehicle has been pre.s.sed into service, all parties making a supreme ellort to get every man to the poiis. The Liberals are confident that they will poll a larger vote oil the south side of the track than ever before, while the Conservatives are relying on getting every one of tlieir supporters to tiie polls in order that they may offset, if possible, the great majority rolling up for Jones on tlie north side. An estimate of the number of votes polled soutli of the. track at one o'clock this afternoon placed the number at 777, Of these Mr. Jones claimed slightly over 300, while Dr. Stewart and tlie Socialist; candidate claimed the rest. Stewart's maionty at tiiat time,was therefore about 150. I,n Nortih Lethbridge and across the. river tiie vote will bo exceedingly large. Here, too, the Conservatives have many of their best workeirs stationed, and no vote is let slip; But tiie atmosphere is all Jones: The r Socialist candidate is working hard,;' and hopes to make a good' showing . at Diamond City. However; at the s coal camps on this side of the river ;i the Socialist votfe will be-small. , The estimated number, of votes/-polled at this election is 2500..-. At , the byo-election at which Dr.. Stew-,;-ary was eledted in 11)11 the number-:, was about I'/oO.
