A. J. Smith, prominent mer-
chant and ex-postmaster at
Moore, Okla., was seriously in-
jured this morning when his au-
tomobile turned over on him six
miles this side of Blanchard. In
company with Frank Farris, of
Moore, Mr. Smith was driving
home from Blanchard, when his
car, in passing over a small
bridge slipped over the edge and
turned completely aver, pinning
Mr. Smith underneath. Mr. Far-
ris was thrown several feet, but
escaped with minor injuries.
Mr. Smith was brought to Nor-
man as soon as possible and tak-
en to Dr. Bobo's office. His
most serious injury is to the
spine, the car falling on him in
such a manner as to injure it
severely. He is resting easy to-
day, but will not be able to be
moved home for some days.
It is sincerely hoped Mr.
Smith's injuries will not prove
serious an# that he will soon re-

WILLIAMS HAS LEAD OF OVER
FIVE THOUSAND IN COUN-
TIES REPORTED, MOST-
LY IN THE SOUTH
RIVAL STATE CHAIRMEN
EACH CLAIMS VICTORY
Tremendous Increase In Socialist Vote
and Loss in Progressive—Gore
Re-elected by a Big Majority
—Cix Democratic Con-
.j. .;. .j. j. .j, .3.
Following is the statement of *
W. R. Samuel, chairman of the ❖
democratic state campaign com- ❖
mlttee at 1 a. m„ Wednesday:
"Judge Williams has been
elected by a plurality of from
12,000 to 15,000 votes. He has •>
probably run 5,000 votes behi.id •>
the democratic ticket. The deflec- •>
tion, however, to John Fields, is ❖
not sufficient to come anywhere
near the defeat of Judge Wil-
Ilams. We could be no more con- ❖
fident than we are that Judge ❖
Williams has won.
"Senator Gore undoubtedly has
been returned to the senate, and
we have elected all our congress- ❖
men with the possible exception
of Henry S Johnson, Dick Mor- •>
gan's opponent. In this district •>
there has been a large Bull Moose
vote, and the votes we have re-
ceived indicate that Johnson has ❖
been elected. We may say w«
feel he Is safe. That will give v
Oklahoma a full democratic dele-
gation in congress." ❖
Oklahoma City.—With both sides
claiming victory, the result in the gu-
bernatorial race is likely to be in
doubt until nearly complete returns
are in. With about one-fourth of the
precincts in, Chairman Samuels has re
duced his pre-election claims of S3,000
to 12,000, while the republican chair-
man, Geissler, still sticks to his 30,000
On the returns tabulated to date,
about ore-fourth of the state, Williams
has a lead of about 5,000, but this does
not include Oklahoma county, which
will give Fields better than 2,000, nor
Guthrie, conceded to Fields. It in-
cludes only half of Tulsa, and this
half gives Fields four hundred. It
does not Include Muskogee, which both
sides claim, the republican claim be-
ing a shade the louder.
The Dally Okluhoman claims a lead
for Williams of G,3t)0 on returns from
715 out of 1,476 precincts in 45 coun-
ties, all in the southern half of the
state. In a very few districts Wil-
liams made gains over Cruce, but the
rule was the other way.
The one result that is sure is that
United States Senator Thomas P. Gore
ran far phead of the ticket in the re-
turns received, and has been re-elected
senator by a big majority. The state,
according incomplete figures, will
send seven democratic representatives
and one republican to the next con-
The Congressional Results.
In the first congressional district
James A. Davenport, of Vinita, ap-
pears to have a safe lead in early re-
turns over Jos. A. Gill, also of Vinita,
his republican opponent. He claimed
his re-election late Tuesday night.
Results of Election in the East.
Senator Cummins is re-elect-
ed by 40,000; Uncle Joe Cannon
"comes back" by a majority of
3500 in the Danville, 111., dis-
trict ; Senator Penrose over-
whelmed Giiford Pinchot and A.
J. Palmer in Pennsylvania;
Charlie Curtis is re-elected sena-
tor in Kansas, Murdock being a
bad third; Arthur Capper is
elected Governor of Kansas by a
big majority over H. J. Allen;
the Republican candidate for
governor of New York, Whit-
man, defeats Gov. Glynn by
something like 125,000, while
Wadsworth, Republican for Sen-
ator, defeats Gerard and Colby,
badly; Dan Anthony for Con-
gress in Kansas, elected by 8,-
000 over Sheffield Ingalls, Pro-
gressive ; Pat J. McGinley is run-
ning Congressman Phil Campbell
a close race in Kansas.
Woman suffrage was defeated
in Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio,
and adopted in North Dakota
and South Dakota. Statewide
Prohibition was defeated in Ohio

❖ Following is the statement of ❖
•5* Arthur Geissler, chairman of the +
•J* republican state committee, at 1
•Ir a. m., Wednesday: •!*
•> "John Fields has been elected
*:• bi 30,000 plurality. We find noth-
•I* ing in the returns to cause us to ❖
❖ change our pre election fore- ❖
❖ cast The vote in the various
counties is measuring up fully to
❖ what had been expected and not
v one single disappointment has
❖ been reported thus far. We claim
❖ the election of the entire repub- *
❖ lican ticket and that of Judge
❖ John H. Burford over T P. Gore *
❖ for United States senator ap- *
❖ pears to have resulted. The re-
turns indicate that Dick Morgan
❖ and Gill have been elected to con- *
❖ gress. The returns in other dis- -I*
tricts are so incomplete as re- ❖
❖ ceived by us as to make any
statement without proper basis. *:*
❖ "We have made substantial ❖
❖ gains in every county In the state
❖ while most of the southern coun- ;•
❖ ties have gone democratic. It *
seems our vote in many of them
will show an increase of from 20 •:*
•> to 75 per cent over 1910. *
•I* "Oklahoma county has given us
more than 2,000 majority over the *
democratic eandidate for gover-
nor. in 1910 this county went *
for Cruce by 1,089. Garfield *
county, which gave McNeal 1,087
majority in 1910, now shows 2,000
for Fields. Comanche went for
•i* Fields by 100. Cruce's majority
•I* was 840. The republican major-
•I* ity in Blaine has been increased
from 198 to 400; in Lincoln from
365 to 1,000; in Caddo from 111
•I* to 500. Roger Mills, democratic
in 190 by 341, has gone for Fields
•I* by 50 Custer, democratic by 52 ❖
•I* in 1910, is republican this year by
❖ 500. Pottawatomie, democratic
in 1910 by 263, has given Fields a ❖
❖ majority of 200. Washita has ap-
❖ parently given Fields 50 majority,
while in 1910 it gave Cruce 641."
In the second district, \V W. Hast-
ings, of Tahlequah, was lending Chas.
A. Cook, of Muskogee, republican, ami
his election was claimed al Hastings
Charles D Carter was re-elected in
tbe third Oklahi '.iia district, over c II.

congressman from the seventh district,
triumphing over Walter S Mills, re-
publican, of Clinton, and Dick T .Mor-
gan, republican, and present coti-ress-
uian, Is leading Henry Johnson, of
Perry, in the eighth district.
The socialists polled a heavy vote
in all southern ccimtles of the state
and in a number ran ahead of the re-
publican ticket. In one or two west-
era counties the socialist candidate
for governor, Pred W. Holt, received
more votes than either Fields or Wil-
A very light progressive vote was
cast in the state.
One thing i^ certain. The Social-
ist vote will show an increase of at
least BOBper cent, and they will cap-
ture a few county -0(11068 and very
likely seme seats in the legislature
The progressive vote is greatly re

in Congress has been cut to al-
most nothing, estimates beimr
about 25 Democratic majority.
