eighth VTwenty - nlnth and Thirtieth Assembly districts oom - prlalng the section of the city south cf Market street from the water front on the east to the Mission on the west once the most dependable district to labor proved a disappointment to labor politicians this time The voters resi dents wage - earners business men and owners of property were dlaaatlsned with the present administration and the manner In which that district was treated The district is said to have been most shamefully neglected th streets sidewalks street lights and sewers being In a bad condition and seriously retarding the rebuilding of homes and business places In that section The Twenty - eighth district failed to come up to Its voting strength which Is probably due to removals and so sentees Many lodging - houses patron Ized by seafaring men are located In that district and many voters are ab sent from the city at this season The balloting which was the heaviest In the early morning progressed quietly all day In the Fourth precinct In which 178 voter are registered the voting was heavy all day as many as twenty voters being In line at a time awaiting their turn VOTE HEAVY IJT MOlUtlJfO In the Twenty - ninth district the voting was heaviest during the morning and shortly before the polls closed at night while during the rst of the day voting proceeded steadily In some of the precincts of this district the precinct officers allowed citizens to vote whose names appeared on the chnl - lange list as having removed from the places from which they had regiatered provided the - citizen waa willing to swear that he was still entitled to vote as a resident of the place from whjch he had registered This method was deemed advisable because the voters are known to be absent from the city on business but retain their residence here In the Thirtieth district rotlng was steady all day with few challenges In some of the precincts the vote was very light caused by removals Voting began with a rush In the Thlrty - flrst district at every precinct when the pools opened the stalls being continuously run until after 9 o clock Again at noon there was an Influx of voters that taxed nearly every booths capacity for an hour and by 110 In the afternoon 75 per cent of the dis tricts vote had been cast in a quiet ana orderly manner At the booth at Sixteenth and Shotwell streets the Judgea looked for trouble they said during the counting of the vote They had been notified In aome mysterious way ot trouble in the evening but were prepared for it As a fair sample - of the votlnar In the Thirty - second district In the ninth precinct by 4 oclock lit votea had been cast out of a registration of lt Th rotlng was steady all day with the usual morning and noon pressure Th rotlng was heaviest In th Thirty - third district early in th morn ing nearly naif the ballots of the dis trict being cast before 10 oclock Throughout the district there was great entnusiasm all day for RoLnh th Ma Carthy forces being silent and not much in evidence Thar waa the general morning and noon pressure of voting In th Thirty - fourth district and also a considerable rush In th evening From 5 oclock until closing time all th stall ware filled Everybody seemed confident ot Rolpba election but all wanted to have a hand In It WHEN ROLPH OAST BALLOT In the Thirty - fifth district Jamea Rolph Jr cast ballot No I7109 at Twenty - fourth and Valencia streeta at 925 oclock In the morning A crowd followed him to th booth and waited for biro While he went In the atail and marked hla ballot Soma on aaked him If he waa tired Not a bit waa hla quick and amlllng reply He looked aa fresh and -

seyenth district and early In the aft ernoon 85 per cent of the rotes had been cast That Rolph wa th favor ite with most of th rotors was quits apparent ana no on sesmea to car to - nid th fact Everywhere In th Thirty - ninth A - sembly district the Rolph sentiment prevailed yesttraay At 4 oclock la bly district In San Francisco At nearly all of the precincts It was given out that Rolph would carry the big district by at least 8000 majority The large vote In this district was not surprising as It was the consensus ot opinion three weeks ago that th Thirty - ninth would poll the biggest vote In the history of the district Everything In this district as In the Thirty - eighth was quiet and orderly and the precedent established years ago by this reform district was carried out In every detail In th Thirty - eighth Asswmbty district the Voting quieted down after the morning session and until nearly 5 oclock In the afternoon the balloting waa straggling The early vote however was large and as In the Thirty - ninth It was predicted that nearly 10 per cent ot the total vote would be east NINETY PEnCENT VOTED Practically 90 per cent of the votera regiatered In the Fortieth district cast their ballots at the different polling place yesterday As this Is admittedly one of the strongest Rolph districts In the city It meant unexpected atrength for him because of the unusual percentage of registered voters who went to the polls At 3 oclock yesterday afternoon In the third precinct of the Fortieth dla - trlct 200 votea had been cast out of 249 registered In the fourth precinct of the Fortieth 202 out2f 269 had been cast In the seventh 131 out of 178 In the sixth 125 out of 150 No disturbances or attempts at Illegal voting were reported In the Fortieth The election was uneventful In the Forty - third - district though a strong light was made there for Finn and Flckert In addition to the active campaigning for Mayor Some of the booths of this district were in the Tenderloin and more than ordinary in - tereat was manifested in them The vote was very light until the afternoon when th voters who rise late appeared at the polla One Incident marred the day at the booth on OFar - rell street west of Jones where a group of hard looking rounders tore up the Rolph tickets and threw the bit of paper into the faces of the Rolph workers Aa many aa eighty votea were challenged In the sixth precinct of the Forty - fourth district at Grant avenue and Bush street and these votes were all sworn In The administration workers at this booth were freely criticised by voters who expressed themaelves as surprised at the selection of McCarthy campaigners From this booth clear acroaa the city to the bay the streets were swept with automobiles filled with push politicians More than 100 Chinese votes were cast MANAGE8S A NT URPRI EO First Reports From the Polls Forecasted the Landslide for James Rolph Jr From th lime that the flrst returns arrived at the Rolph headqusrter In the Magee building last night when three Rolph votes were recorded to one for P H McCarthy the Rolph campaign managers were figuratively rioting on great waves of Joy When the seme three - to - ane style of returns began coming In from all over the city the men who for weeka have abandoned their private buslnesaea to work for a man to redeem San Francisco could hardly restrain themselves Before the first ballot was counted Theodore Roosevelt Jr declared that be waa satisfied that It would be at least two to one for Rolph Young Roosevelts prophecy came aa near the fig - urea as that of any of the propheta about headquarters At the Rolph campaign committee headquarters at 71 Market atreet a bureau was at work all night checking in the returns that were received from the precinct voting booths throughout the city and from the Municipal Conference corps of watchers who were reporting to Frank Powera at room 115 at the Russ building Direct telephone wires had been Installed between the Rolph headquarters and the Russ building bureau and the candidates the campaign managers and other Interested persons at headquarters were enabled to watch the progress of th vot all during th night ROLPH AN EASY WINNER It was less than an hour after the count had started that It became evident that Rolph had been elected Mayor of fan Francisco on a landslide of votes The silent fall of ballots Into the boxes throughout the city told the story of public sentiment as It could be told In no other manner IL U Brandensteln of the Municipal Conference remained at the Rolph at the bootha on both sides of the Chinese quarter and one Chinese voter gave his name as Mong Joe Isaacs The Italian vote came out strong In the Forty - fifth district It was said at a booth at Stockton and Filbert streets that never before waa audi eagerness to vote displayed there headquarters In the Magee building all evening I cannot add anything to the statement that has been made to the people by Msx Kuhi of Mr Rolphs campaign headquarters management said Brandensteln last night The election of Rolpb was Inevitable He was the man In whom the people 6T the city hd confidence He Is the man the people of San Francisco want for Mayor during the Panama -

one ballots had been thrown out because they were improperly folded but the returns showed such an o erwlielming majority for Rolph that such a matter was of little consequence The Rolph - McCnrthy fight so onesided thut It didnt have the appearance of a contest took up the attention of tlio workers at headquarters and little attention was paid to any of the other offices A number of Supervisors were at the Rolph headquarters but they became so Interested In Nie Rolph returns that they thought little of their own fights v SAN F2ANCI3CAN TO WTD BOSTON WOMAN BOSTON Masai September 28 The announcement war rsie here today of the engagement of Mrs Robert Brifee Falrbalrn of Beacon street to Captain CeciV Stewart of San Francisco Mrs Falrbalrn Is reU known In Boston so -
