(By United Press.
CHICAGO, April 14. Practically
complete returns from yesterday's pre
ferential primaries in Illinois today
show that Governor Iwden Is leading
Oeneral Wood by 66.731 votes.
The democratic situation is muddl
ed. With no names printed on the
ballots, a great variety of names were
written in; some palpale "Joshes" on
neighbors and some seriously Intended.
All democratic eiigibles are honored
with written -hi votes, but tabulations
failed to indicate a favorite.
There are two features to keep Low
den's walkaway from making: it a dull
election. One was Wood's victory In
Cook county, -where tho genera! receiv
ed 105,877 and Iowden 78,344. The
other was a great written -in vote
given Johnson. He thus polled 40,881
in Cook county.
One candidate for delegate from
Chicago, pledged, to Johnson, waa
elected. He was the only out-and-out
candidate for Johnson. On a basis of
a preferential vote. not absolutely
binding, Lowden would take 35 A GO

XE WYOKK. April 14. Despite
Governor Lowden's victory in the
Illinois primary, General Wood today'
ipparently continued to lead in the
race for the republican . presidential
nomination. Assuming that 35 of
Illinois' delegatess will vote for Low
den, 14 for Wood, and one for John
son, the standing on instructed dele
gates would be, Wood 61. Lowden 47,
and Johnson 4 1. On the basis of
claims of support (if unpledged dele
gates the standing would be: Wood
13 7. Lowden 105. Nicholas M urray
Butler 88, and Johnson 67.
To political observers the real sur
prise of the Illinois primary was the
large number of "written in ' ballots
for Johnson. The only republican
names printed on the ballots were
those of Lowden and Wood, but in
complete returns showed that John
son, who made no campaign In Illi
nois, polled about 10,000 votes.
