In 2029 districts out of the total of
6661 the vote for Senator stood: Wads
worth, 254,607; Gerard, 237,742; Colby,
At Republican headquarters it was
said that their entire state ticket and
i a majority of their candidates for both
houses of the Legislature had been
elected. The result became known
- early. Within two hours after the
polls closed Democrats generally ad
mitted defeat for Governor Glynn. They
, clung to the hope, however, that Gerard
would be elected.
Glynn's Hopes Blasted.
Supporters of Governor Glynn had
; hoped that he would carry Greater New
York by 105,000 and that Mr. Whit
man would com down to Harlem with
no more than a plurality of 75,000.
1 These hopes soon were dissipated. Vir
tually complete returns from the city
Indicated that Glynn probably would
j have a plurality of between 60,000 and
60,000 here and that Whitman's up
state lead would be well upward of
Wadsworth polled a good votte in
Greater New York, approximately two
. fifths of the total number of districts
giving Gerard a lead of only about
SO, 000 over his opponent. At the same
time Wadsworth had a 60,000 lead in
a little less than one-third of the up
Sulzer Supporters Rejoice.
Sulzer supporters indulged in a cele
bration at his Broadway headquarters
when they beard that Glynn had been
defeated. They gave all credit for
Whitman's victory to their leader and
,' the ex-Governor expressed the same
- view thus:
"The verdict of the people speaks
for itself. Without money, without
newspaper support and without or
ganization I have elected Whitman,
, beaten Glynn and made Roosevelt look
like 30 cents."
1 Whitman had nothing to nay except
that "the result speaks for itself."
The only word forthcoming from
: Governor Glynn was his telegram to
' Mr. Whitman sent from Albany.
"I congratulate you on your victory,"

CENTRALIA, Wash., Nov. 3. (Spe

convention of the United Spanish War
Veterans, which will be held in Cen

According to a letter received yester

veterans to convene at the same time
as the Grand Army of the Republic,
Woman's Relief Corps and Women of
the Grand Army of the Republic, all of
which will hold their 1915 meetings
The Spanish veterans expected to
meet the fore part of July, but the

probably will be forced. to change their
plans. The local Commercial Club al

Improvements in the Crater Lake Na
tional Park is urged by Will G. Steel,
superintendent of the park, in his an
nual report to the Secretary of the In
terior, made nubile today. The National
Park Service today is so changeable and
so unsatisfactory, says Steel, that cap
italists are unwilling to advance funds
on park concessions in amounts ade
quate to their needs, and in consequence
much needed improvements and accom
odations for visitors are not provided
as raoidly as desired.
Therefore he proposes Government
ownership, coupled with the suggestion
that these properties be leased by the
Government to desirable parties for a
reasonable consideration. This, he says.
would be an important step towards
making the parks sell-sustaining.
"With the road system completed," says
Steel, "this revenue, together with that
received from automobiles, would make
the Crater Lake Park self-sustaining
from the start, providing a compre
hensive plan of management were de
veloped to meet new conditions. Con
struction of private improvements at
Crater Lake is yet in its infancy, for
which' reason I would recommend that

resulting in a new road from the
Klamath entrance to the rim of the
lake, a distance of 13 miles, and one
from the southeast, or Pinnacles en
trance, to the rim at Kerr Notch, a dis
tance of six and one-half miles. By the
end of this season the Rim road will
be completed from Crater Lake Lodge
to Sentinel Rock, making a total com
pleted by grading and cross drainage
this season of ten and one-half miles,
which, added to the work of 1913, gives
about 25 miles of newly graded -oads
within the nark.
Discussing the road problem further
Mr. Steele says:
"I understand it is the intention of
the War Department to commence sur
facing as soon as climatic conditions
will permit in the Spring of 1915. This
plan is questionable, for the reason that
if this is done it will be impossible for
many years to get anything better,
whereas if surfacing is left for the
present it will permit of an effort be
ing made to secure from Congress
money with which to construct paved

ing to estimates of the War Department
it will cost 320,000 per annum merely
to sprinkle such roads. It is the part
of wisdom to build roads of such a
character as that this heavy burden
will not have to be borne. I hope to
make the . Crater Lake National Park
self-sustaining in a few years, but if
this great burden is to be added, that
happy condition will be delayed indefi

One the Question of park boundaries
Superintendent Steel says:
"Boundaries of the Crater Lake Na
tional Park originally were not located
wisely, for the reason that but little
was then known of the necessities of
the case, or of physical conditions. Ex
perience has shown that they should be
changed to meet new and permanent
"On the west there is a narrow strip
of Klamath County that should be elim
inated and the park made to conform
with the county line.
"On the east there ia also a narrow
strip between the park and the Klam
ath Indian Reservation that should be
eliminated and the park boundary made
to conform with the Indian reserva
tion. "On the north is located an extremely
interesting region that is wholly within
the Crater National Forest and should
be included In the Crater Lake National
Park in time to extend to it the road
system now under construction. It is
neither valuable' for agriculture nor
mining-, and there is no public reason
why this extension should not be made.
On the other hand. I believe it will
