COLORADO FOR HIM
Roosevelt Carries the State
GOVERNORSHIP. IS IN DOUBT
Peabody Is Running Behind His
Ticket, but Republicans, Believe
He Is Safe Scratched Bal
lots Will Decide It.
DENVER, Nov. S. Estimates at mid
night from scattering and Incomplete re
turns Indicate a plurality o over 10,000
for Roosevelt In Colorado. The result aa
to Congressmen and state officers is in
doubt, owing to the large number of
scratched ballots that have not been
counted. In 130 precincts outside of Den
ver Peabody received 10,069 votes and Ad
ams 10.C35, with 8168 scratched ballots un
counted. The scratched ballots In the en
tire state are estimated at o-er 40,000.
Scratched ballots in Denver -which have
been counted run In favor of Adams in the
ratio of about two to one.
On this basis the Democrats claim that
Adams is elected Governor by 7000 to 8000
plurality, with a probability that the re
mainder of the state ticket is also elected.
Democratic Chairman Smith will not con
cede that Roosevelt has carried the state,
"Adams plurality will be not less than
Republican Chairman Fairley said:
"Colorado has gone Republican, electing
by a safe majority the Electors, Congress
men and the entire state ticket"
At midnight the vote had been counted
in only two precincts In Denver. In one of
these were 93 scratched ballots, of which
63 were for Adams and In the other Ad
ams had 115 out of 163. In 190 precincts
out of 20 In Denver County a majority of
2320 for the entire Democratic ticket was
given, .with thousands of scratched bal
lots remaining to 'be counted. It is esti
mated from these figures that Parker will
carry Denver by 5000 and Adams by 6000
Republicans 1n the Lead.

DENVER, Colo., Nov. S. The Post, Rep.,

Indications point to the election of John
G. Cutler, Republican, for Governor, by
a considerably smaller majority. In some
districts, especially in Salt Iake County,
two-thirds of the tickets -were scratched,
and the result may not be known before
tomorrow afternoon. The American
(anti-church) party vote in this county
may -reach 8000.

Sweep Knox Sure of Re-election.
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 8. The Repub
licans made an almost clean sweep in
Pennsylvania, carrying the state for
Roosevelt by pver 300,000, and electing
two of the six State Senators and 29 of
the 32 Congressmen. They have also
elected about 175 of the 204 members of
the House of Representatives. This gives
them control of both branches' of the
Legislature by a large majority, insur
ing the election of Governor Pennypack
er's appointee, P. C. Knox, for United
States Senator to succeed the late M. S.
John P. Elklns, Republican, is elected
State Supreme Court Judge by a majority
almost as great as that cast for tee Re

ly all the judicial districts In which elec

Judges. There were but five counties In
which Associate Judges were chosen.
Falling Off in Democratic Vote.
PHILADELPHIA. Nov. S. The returns
counted in ten wards in Philadelphia
show a falling off In Parker's vote as
compared with that of Bryan of 3500. -and
an increase for Roosevelt over McKlnley
of 10,000. Republican leaders say the vote
is far ahead of their wildest expectations,
and say Philadelphia will show 160,000
plurality for Roosevelt and the state "will
give a Republican plurality of' at least

45,000 to 55,000. The Legislature will be
Republlcan-by nearly 50. All the nlneRe
publican Congressmen are elected by In
creased majorities, and the Republicans
claim also the Second and Twelfth Dis
tricts, but they are in doubt
The Republicans have almost if not
quite, doubled' the McKlnley plurality In
the state of 26,467 four years ago. Vice.
President-elect Fairbanks received the
returns at his residence from private
wires, which connected his home with
the "White House at "Washington.
The Democratic state leaders concede
the Republicans the election by 35,000.
Democratic State Chairman O'Brien
concedes the Legislature to 'the Repub
licans, and this insures the election of
two Republican Senators to. succeed Sen
ators Fairbanks and, Beveridge.
Information received at Republican
state headquarters Indicates thai the
Republicans will control the General As-f
sembly by a majority of SO or 40 on Joint
Majority at Least 50,000.
INDIANAPOLIS, Now S. At 10 o'clock
Senator Beveridge, who has been watch
ing the returns closely, said Roosevelt's
plurality in Indiana would not be less
than 60,00 and probably more, and that
the Republican majority on joint ballot
in the Legislature "would be 50.

President Roosevelt has apparently car
rled Chicago by about 50,000 and Cook
County by 90,000 to 100,000. Charles S.
Deneen, the Republican candidate for
Governor, will have about the ssme plu
rality. The Republicans have probably

Both Sides Are Equally Positive They
Have Carried the State.
ST. LOUIS, Not-. 9. At 1 o'clock the re-d
suits of the election In Missouri were in
doubt Both sides claimed victory. The
Democratic State Committee claimed the
state had been carried by a majority of
35,000 and 3t Louis by 5000; that 15 Demo
cratic Congressmen had been elected and
the Legislature would be Democratic by a
majority of 40.
On the other hand. State Republican
Chairman Neldrlnghaus was equally as
sertive that St Louis had gone Repub
lican by 20,000,-and that the state major
ity would reach 000. He felt confident the
final returns would show at least five Re
publican Congressmen elected, also a ma
jority in the Legislature on joint ballot

NEW YORK, Nov. S. The period of.
suspense that followed the closing of
the polls was not prolonged. In no elec
tion in recent years has the result
been delnitely "known so soon. Hardly
had the sun gone down when ithe re
sults In New York beganto --appear.
Bulletin followed bulletin, each show
ing large .Republican gains , and by 7
O'clock it was evident that the great
Empire State had given the Republican
candidates a majority beyond the -predictions
of the party managers.
There was no disposition to hope
against hope. As state after state sent

turns from the state are so Incomplete at
i6v inat it is impossible to give more
than rough estimates of majorities. In
every part of the state Roosevelt and
Gooding -ran far better than was antici
pated by most observers. In this county
it was expected Roosevelt would get-2000
plurality, but it seems likely at this hour
the figure will reach 2800. while Goodln.
for Governor, will have 1800. The entire
county ticket is elected by pluralities
ranging Irom 1200 to 2000.
There has apparently been a clean
sweep in all parts of Southern Idaho and
meager returns indicate like results in
the North. From all that can now be
learned, the Democrats have not carried

though Custer is close. A rough estimate
of majorities for Roosevelt in the state
by counties is herewith given. It is
based on partial returns from 12 of the
2L counties, and must be understood as
merely an outline of the situation:

Bear Lake '1.00'

Ne Terces 2,000

On the. same estimate Gooding should
have from 12,000 to 13,000. In some' of
the Mormon counties he is running ahead
of the National ticket.
