case no candidate shall receive 40

provision of the law does not aiply

SEATTLE. Wash.. Sept. 9. (Special.)
Election returns, although late tonight
still Incomplete, indicate that Samuel G.
Cosgrove, of Pomeroy, a second choice
selection. will receive the nomination for
Governor of the Suite of Washington.
Cosgrove'a lead on second choice vote,
and. the split on first choice" votes be
tween Albert E. Mead and Henry Mc-F-rlde..
together .ffth. first choice vot-
dir1dd between live other candidates i
the fleM. have brought about a situation
peculiar I.-. 'Washington state po".tlcs.
The laixet returns from ali' parts of
the state Indicate that when the count
is completed Cosgrove may have a
plurality of all votes cast, leading both
McBrlde and Mead. Up to nearly mid
night the count showed McBrlde lead
ing Cosgrove, but belated returns from
remote country districts are adding to
Cosgrove's total. Mead is third in J.he
How dor-grove Won Fighu
Though Cosgrove's plurality. If he
lias one, will not be sufficient to nomi
nate him' as first choice, he is certain
to win he wasvoted for as second
choice by both McBrlde and Mead men.
About 30 per cent of the vote is still
to be counted.
Tonight the headquarters of Cosgrove
la flooded with congratulatory telegrams
and messages from all parts of the state.
Although the count J. still incomplete,
the victory is conceded to Cosgrove, and
Governor Mead hfm stiff was one of the
first to congratulate the Pomeroy man,
- Mead Will Take Stump.
At an early hour this morning indica
tions pointed to an extremely close con
test between McBrlde avnd Mead, but late
reports this afternoon dispelled what
ever hope the Mead men bad and the
Governor announced that he was prepared
to take the stump for Cosgrove and
would gladly do so.
Washington's new direct primary law
baa eliminated Senator Ankeny from the
race for Senator. Wesley L. Jones, by a
majority reaching wall into the thousands,
has been given the nomination and the
number of Republicans who arc ple-ltred
to vote always for the candidate of ti;'!r
choice receiving the highest popular vote,
precludes the possibility of the election
of Ankeny by the next Legislature.
Local Option Settled.
On the Governorship and the United
States Senatorshlp the great battle was
fought all over the state. All other
issues, save the question of local op
tion, were subservient to these con
tests. That the question of local op
tion is settled to a great extent is ap
parent from the returns at hand. It
is true that the Republican platform
Is committed to the local option idea,
but the fact that McBrlde was backed
by the liquor interests and received
such a heavy vote ss to place him sec
ond in the race on second choice-votes
and first in the race on first choice
votes, leaves the liquor men sanguine
that only a "reasonable" local option
law will be passed in the next legisla
ture. Reasons for Mead's Defeat.
Governor Mead's closest friends to
day admit that the issue of local op
tion and racetrack gambling is to
blame for his defeat. Even In his own
county he barely scratched through
and the vote against him in many
counties where campaign managers be
lieved him strong, fell off so surpris
ingly that no other conclusion can be
King County was first and foremost
the battleground of the campaign. In
this county both Henry McBrlde and
Ankeny win by a heavy vote. That the
King County agreement to support the
wishes of Senator Piles carried the day
cannot be disputed In the face of the
returns. That an Insurgent movement

Two Remarkable Triumphs Are

States in Lead In Aviation. v
WASHINGTON. Sept. 9. OrvUle
Wright, in three phenomenal flights at
Fort Meyer today, established new aero
plane records that not only assure the
success of the official trials before the
Army board, but Indicate that aerial
flight is now only a matter of develop
ment. War on land and sea will find in
the aeroplane, It is now conceded by
military men, a valuable means of recon
nolssance and possibly carnage.
Two flights of approximately one hour
each and another flight in which two
men were whirled through the air for
rnore than six minutes were the achieve
ments of the Wright brothers' aeroplane
today. That these flights, record-breaking
as they were, will be surpassed by
Orville Wright during his trials at Fort
Meyer is confidently predicted.
The first flight, made this morning, in
which the machine circled the drill
grounds at the fort 57 times in 57 min
utes SI seconds, was surpassed this
evening, when a flight of 62 minutes, and
15 seconds was made. He reached a

Although Mr. Loeb has spent a great
