Wattis, would be exceeded exceeded by many thousand. It was .apparent with the returns from the first five districts that the citizenry was manifesting a decidedly strong Democratic sentiment. Indications Early And even with the receipt of the figures from the.,first 10 districts, there appeared -to be little doubt but that the Democratic, party would sweep Salt Lake city' and county, with no exceptions.

Although returns had been received f?om only 290 of the state's 800 districts, districts, the tide was strongly Democratic Democratic and Republican leaders:virtually leaders:virtually conceded every office to their opponents. . Senator Reed Smoot late Tuesday night sent the following message to his Democratic opponent, Dr. Elbert D. Thomas: "I extend to you my very best wishes for your success." It was addressed, "United States Senator- elect Elbert D. Thomas."

The people have voted for a change at Washington. By a popular and electoral plurality that may establish a new record, they have elevated Franklin 'D. Roosevelt to the presidency.
