Total vote cast..
Much to the surprise of the campaign
managers themselves, about half the total
vote of San Antonio was at the polls
Saturday when the School Children's
Ticket candidates for members of the City
School Board were elected by a majority
of 372 votes.
The School Children's ticket candidates
counted most on the vote from the Fourth
and Eighth Wards. In the latter they
considered many German residents would
vote against a ticket supported by Mayor
Callaghan, and in the Fourth Ward they
were willing to depend on the vote that
has filwayk been opposed, to Mayor Cal-
laghan and to candidates who have his
Loss of Eighth.
The People's Ticket candidates did not
expect the Eighth Ward to go against
thcni, and placed their dependence mainly
in the Seventh, Third, Second and First
Wards, where a majority of the resi-
dents of men In moderate financial cir-
In the wards on which they had counted
strongest the vote polled was light and
the great German wards went for the op-
posing .side. Neither was cock-sure until
a report from the last precinct came in.
In. the First Ward the victory for the
People's Ticket was complete and over-
whelming, but not as big as was ex-
About twice as many votes were cost
for the People's Ticket as for the other
in the Second Ward, but. again the ma-
jority was not as complete as was ex-
In the Fourth Ward the victory for
the School Children's Ticket was all that
was expected and a little more. In some,
of the precincts it was nearly three to
In the Fifth Ward the fight was hot.
Some of the precincts went one way and
some another, with the result that the
total was quite close.
In the Sixth Ward the vote was fairly
good, but not heavy and the majority
for the School Children's Ticket was good
considering the number of votes.
The Seventh Ward was one on which
the People's Ticket depended, but the
majorities were small and the number
of votes polled not so large as expected.
The totals were close.
The Eighth Ward was somewhat doubt-
ful and the fight was hard. When tlie
returns came in it showed a heavy vote
was polled and the victory for the School
Children's Ticket was complete.
The leader of the School Children'3
Ticket was Dr. A. Rochs, with 2333 votes;
the leader of the People's Ticket was
John F. Fentiman^ with 2161 votes. The
difference between the weakest candi-
date on the School Children's Ticket and
the strongest on the People's was two
votes in favor of the former.
This is beyond a doubt the most inter-
esting campaign for School Trustees that
has ever been held in this city. On for-
mer occasions the vote has totalled four
hundred or five hundred for the entire
Many men at the polls admitted that
previous to yesterday they had not been
interested, but the number of personal
requests from friends to go to the polls
had persuaded them to do so.
A feature of the returns that surprised
some of the supporters of each ticket was
the number of voters who cast a straight
ballot. Very few split tickets were placed
in tin; ballot box.
It was at first thought the Fourth
Ward would not vote for W. M. South-
worth on account of his being a union
man and the Fifth Ward would not vote
for Dr. Bliem because he was charged
with being a prohibitionist. The returns
showed all fears groundless.

Election Day Did Not Pass Without
Reports of quarrels and difficulties of
various kinds in the election were fre-
quent yesterday. At Mune«s Hall, the
polling place of the Fourth Precinct, a
policeman stood in the polling place and
the presiding officer refused to open the
ballot box until ho left. Some little
trouble seemed likely to occur but all
was over before the Deputy Sheriffs, who
were asked for, could arrive.
At Benevolenc'a Hall, the polling place
of the Fifth Precinct, A. Montez, special
officer of election, was arrested by
Policeman Keilman. Mr. Keilman said
when he asked Mr. Montez why he was
standing inside the lines he replied that
he was a special policeman.
Officer Keilman declared he was not
and arrested him on a charge of imper-
sonating an officer. Montez says he re-
plied that he was a special officer of
election appointed by Fred W. Cook,
president of the Board of School Trust-
ees, and that the policeman misunder-
stood him. Montez gave $100 bond and
The other difficulties were of little im-
portance and none resulted seriously.
INJUNCTION NOT GRANTED.
People's Ticket Complained It Was
Not Permitted to Appoint Judges.
MUeh to the surprise of the supporters
of the School Children's Ticket for
School Trustees a suit for injunction to
stop the election was entered about 9:30
o'clock Saturday morning in the Fifty-
seventh District Court before Judge
A'rthur W Sjeligson. The injunction was
The suit was filed by R. P. Coon, cam-
paign manager for the People's Ticket
for School Trustees, against A. J. Avant,
presiding officer of Precinct No. 2. The
plaintiff was represented by Reagan
Houston. He alleged the presiding offi-
cers of election had been appointed by
the supporters of the School Children's
Ticket and only the presiding officers
worn allowed to name the judges and
elerks. On account of this he said the
People's Ticket candidates were abso-
lutely without representation at the polls.
Selig Deutschman, woh was campaign
manager for the School Children's Ticket,
answered the allegations of the plaintiff
by saying the law under which the elec-
tion for School Trustees is being, held is
a special charter granted to the School
Board for the Independent School Dis-
trict of San Antonio.
He showed that the law provides for
the appointment of presiding officers by
the. board and that the presiding offieers
are authorized to appoint their judges
and clerks. Mr. Deutschman said the
executive committee of the School Chil-
dren's Ticket had offered to place any
good men the others would suggest as
judges or clerks in order to give the
People's Ticket candidates representa-
The proceeding lasted about half an
hour and in the meantime votes were
coming in rapidly at the polls. Judge
Seelig&on refused the injunction and the
election continued during the day.

"ITALIANS IN RIOT.
Eattle Between Strikers and Police

PASSAIC',.N. J., May 6.—In a clash be-
tween riotous Italian strikers and the
police today four of the Italians were
shot, one of whom may die; a number of
policemen were injured, and thirty-two
men were made prisoners by the police.
The riot took place about the building
of the Daily Herald, which is being erect-
ed at Central Avenue and Monroe Street,
where a strike of diggers and shovel men
was begun a few days ago. About 150
strikers appeared at the building today
and tried to induce the concrete workers
in the building to join in the strike. Four
policemen, who were on guard, were tem-
porarily overpowered and reinforcements
wero sent from the police station. A bat-
tle ensued, in which four of the strikers
were shot and nearly every policeman
engaged was injured. Policeman Gustav
Schmidt was struck on the head with
bricks and badly hurt, but the rioters
were put to flight after 200 shots were
fired The police pursued the rioters
and routed them out of a stone quarry,
from whence those who were not cap-
tured fled into the woods.
