RETIRED BY VOTERS
Lay Their Defeat to Ab
sence From State.
SENATORIAL RACE IS CLOSE
Vote for Supreme Bench Members
Big Surprise, as All "Were Ex
pec ted to Stand or Fall To
gether Other Signs Upset.
OLYMPIA. Wash., Sept. 12. (Spe
clal.) The retirement to private life
of Washington's two Progressive party
Representatives, J. A. Falconer, of
Everett and J. W. Bryan, of Seattle, is
the feature of returns from last Tues
day's primaries that is attracting chief
Interest throughout the state. Falconer
and Bryan both graduated from the
State Senate into Congress in the Fan
of 3912, being rushed into office by the
Koosevelt wave that swept the State
of Washlnerton. In the State Legisla
ure the two men generally had dif
fered on political issues and rarely
voted the same way. In Congress their
harmony was little more noticeable.
Roth announced their candidacies sev
eral months ago, for the Senatorial
nomination of their party. Bryan re
considered later and became a candi
date for the lower house in the First
or Seattle district, but was repudiated
by his own party. Chief of Police Orrir
fiths, of Seattle, winning the Progres
Close political friends of Falconer
Foue-ht to dissuade him also from seek
ing the Senatorial toga, as it was their
Judgment that he could have Deen re
nominated and probably re-elected
from the Second or Northwestern dis
trict, the Bull Moose stronghold of the
state. The urgings of other advisers,
however, induced the Everett man to
continue the Senatorial race, In which
Ole Hanson won the Progressive nom
ination as the result of a particularly
thorough campaign of the state.
Defeat Blamed to Absence.
Falconer has had a long political
career, having been Speaker of the
lower house of the Washington Legis
lature before being elected to the Sen
ate. He declined to stand for the Pres
idency of the Senate in 1911.
Supporters of both Falconer and
Bryan attribute their defeat to their
enforced absence from the state, caused
by the continuation of the session of
Congress. Neither man left the Na
tional capital to prosecute his cam
paign. It is regarded as significant, how
ever, that, while the three Republi
can Representatives, William E.
Humphrey, in the First district; Al
bert Johnson, in the Third, and Wil
liam L. La Follette, in the Fourth, also
remained at Washington, each was re
nominated by a sweeping majority.
Humphrey received practically twice
the number of first-choice votes given
his three opponents combined.
The surprise of the primaries to most
political prognosticators was the bu
preme Court race. With Chief Justice
Crow and Judges Chadwick and Gose
all running for re-election and con
certed campaigns in their behalf being
made by attorneys, it was believed gen
erally that the three candidates would
be re-elected or would fail together.
Instead, Judge Chadwick ran far ahead
of the others and apparently has won
the election at the primaries by receiv
ing more than 50 per cent of the total
vote cast. Chief Justice Crow will be
one of four candidates whose names
will appear on, the November ballot for
the two remaining places. Judge Gose
has lost out altogether. The work of
the court kept all three Judges close
at their tasks here, while most of their
opponents have been free to campaign
the state. Judge Gose hae been ac
counted one of the ablest of the nine
members of the court.
Humphries Vote Is Surprise.
The surprisingly large vote received
throughout the state by Judge Humph
ries, of Seattle, also was a feature of
the campaign. While Judge Humphries'
name will not appear on the November
ballot, should it prove true, as is now
supposed, that Judge Chadwick has re
ceived a majority of all votes cast, re
turns show that the Seattle jurist, who
attained Nation-wide prominence as
the result of his troubles with Social
ists and I. W. W.'s, has beaten Judge
Gose in the state vote.
The three men who will contest with
Chief Justice Crow for the two remain
ing eeats on the Supreme bench are
Superior Judge Holcomb, of Adams
County; Superior Judge Pemberton. of
Whatcom County, and Edgar G. Mills,
of Seattle, an attorney, recently from
Wisconsin. These were the three men
indorsed by the "joint legislative com
mittee." representing the State Federa
tion of Labor, State Grange and Farm
ers' Union. The Judgeship fight is only
one of the lines of political endeavor
undertaken by this triple alliance. The
"joint legislative committee" also
stood sponsor for the "seven sisters' "
initiative measures, five of which now
are before the Supreme Court for final
decision. The committee also is . en
gaged in pledging candidates for the
Legislature to vote for a proposed con
stitutional amendment which will al
low future constitutional amendments
to be proposed directly by the initiative
without first passing through the Leg
islature. Turner Looks Like Winner.
Incomplete returns from all counties
in the state give George Turner a ma
jority of 264 votes over William W.
Black for the Democratic nomination
for United States Senator. The vote as
received so far gives Turner 11,704 and
Friends of Judge Black say that the
official count will change the situa
tion. It is pointed out that in four of
. tile largest counties of the state King,
Pierce, Chehalis and Lewis it has been
Impossible to get satisfactory figures.
The official canvass at Olympia cannot
be made until the various counties have
sent certified tables of their votes to
the Secretary of State.
Political post-mortems have been
held by most of the defeated candi
dates. On the part of supporters of
George F. Cotterlll, ex-Mayor of Se
attle, there is a general disposition to
attribute his defeat to the presence in
the race of Hugh C. Todd, Democratic
state chairman, also of Seattle. Todd's
first-choice votes were almost entirely
taken away from Cotterlll, the latter's
supporters assert, addition showing
that the Todd vote easily would have
nominated Cotterlll. Another reason
given for the poor showing made by
Cotterill, however. Is his absence from
the state and country, attending an
international temperance convention in
Norway, in the middle of the campaign.
Cotterill's supporters were inclined to
resent the fact that he had left them
to carry on the burden of the fight
and to the European trip undoubtedly
can be laid the loss of hundreds of
The comparatively light vote cast
by all parties was a disappointment
to party managers, especially in view
of the fact that the registration was
heavier than ever before. The heavy
registration Is attributed, however, to
the activities of prohibition advocates,
several months ago, in procuring sig
natures for the state prohibition ini
tiative measure, the initiative law in
this state providing that only the sig
natures of registered voters are to be
Two Races Close.
With the Democratic Senatorial
fight still unsettled between George
Turner, of Spokane, and W. W. Black,
of Everett, and two other races so
close that the official count may be
necessary for final determination, the
primary nominees appear as follows:
United States Senator Republican,
Wesley L. Jones, North Yakima (re
nominated); Democratic, George Turn
er, Spokane, or W. W. Black. Everett;
Progressive, Ole Hanson, Seattle; So
cialist, Adam H. Barth, Tacoma.

of Seattle - J Kitsap County) Re

Democratic, C. C. Dill, Spokane; Pro

to contest for remaining two places on
bench. Herman D. Crow (incumbent),
Edgar G. Mills, Seattle; O. R. Holcomb,

SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 12. Lawyers
disagree as to the Interpretation of
the primary law In the matter of Su
preme Judges' nomination. Supreme
Justice Stephen Chadwick has a ma
jority of all the votes cast, and some
authorities say his name should be
printed on the ballot, with no one opr
posing him, making it necessary for
the voter to write in a candidate's name
if he wishes to vote against Chadwick.
It is believed that to avoid controversy
Chadwick's name will go on the ballot
Just like those of the other nominees.
In this case the name of John E. Hum
phries, of Seattle, whose wholesale use
of the Injunction last year was con
demned by the Supreme Court, will be
on the ballot.
