Only the Solid South Goes for Parker arid
5 ' Roosevelt Will Have 325 Votes in the i
! Next Electoral College.
New York. Nov. 9, 2 p. m.If Maryland has gone republican, as unofficial re
turns nt this hour indicate, the republican vote in the electoral college will be the
unprecedented one of 325 for Roosevelt and Fairbanks to 151 for Parker and Davis.
Not only Is this far in excess of McKinley's vote, 292, in 1900, but Judge Parker's
vote Is four less than that given Bryan four years ago.
It is practically certain that the national republican ticket has carried every
state in the union outside of the so-called solid south. , It may take an ofiiicial count
to decide the result in Maryland.; -'- -'7"i " .'''lt'Z- '
The republican majority in the next house of representatives will be not less
than 50. . : .y-'.
New Tork, Nov. I. The nutlonul re
publican ticket has' been elected by I

loting tp astounding to even the moat
sanguine of tht managers. Confi
dent aa they were of stK-cesa, they
were not prepared for the astonishing
figure which followed tht closing of
tht polls, bringing to the republican

has not carried a single stale which

BIQ SURPRISE IN NEW YORK.
Roevlt Will Have Lead Over, Par-,;
her ef 185,000 Votes.
New Tork, Nov. 8. Theodore Roose
velt's plurality In his native state Is
second only to McKinley's plurality of
268.000 In 1898. It exceeds McKinley's
In 1900 by about 41,500. Late returns
show that there were cast for him In
New Tork state about 185,000 votes
more than were cast for Parker. ' Not
only was hla vote heavy In the country
districts, where the republican strong
holds are, but In Greater New Tork,
traditionally -democratic, he run much
closer to Judge Parker than had been
expected, even by his own campaign
managers. In Greater New Tork Par
ker's plurality was from 12,000 to 14.000
larger than Bryan's, but In the Mate,
according to latt reports, his total1 vote
fell 18.000 short of Bryan's. v;' .'
The small plurality for Parker in
New Tork city cased great astonish
ment When reports came In showing
that he would lead Roosevelt' by ' only
40,000 they were received with amase
ment. Parker's plurality In tht city
Is 25,000 less thsn that given for Her
rick, democrat, for governor. There
was great surprise at tht proportions
of tht vott tor Higglns, republican,
for governor. He Is running ahead
of Odelt's vote In many counties, win
ning by about 85,000. Herrlck did not
carry Albany, his home county, nor did
Parker carry Ulster, in which he lives.
Tht results of the election were cele
brated in New Tork In tht demonstra
te manner characteristic of the city.
