1} 1:x exceptions, in
other parts of the borough, however, transparencies
containing Mr Coler*a portraits were still being
displayed yesterday. Perhaps, like Mr. Bhea and
ex-Controller Coler himself. <>n election niniit, they
are not conceding th<- defeat of their Idol ''until
tin- otii. i;il returns come In."
Several well known Republican leaders, who were
watching the returns closely in the headquarters, In
Joralemon-st., managed to win considerable money
through the stubbornnesa "f the Democrats in
clinging to the belief that Coler was going to win
because of his remarkable majorities in New-York
City. When it was reported la Joralemon-st. that
all th" returns from tho live boroughs showed a
Coler majority of a'noiit 130.000, ami that returns In
from counties above The Bronx gave Odell 120.000
majority, the leaders, who are familiar with con
ditions in the rural districts, were positive that th«
Governor would h>- re-elected. Then it was learned
that in Democratic headquarters they had alreajly
congratulated Mr. Coler on his election and scouted
the possibility of his defeat by the vote above The
Bronx. Checkbooks were quickly produ 1. and in
five miiuitea .1 large numb* r of checks for good
sized amounts were In the Democratic headquar
ters, where tbev were wagered against Coler
money. In some cases the Colerltea were foolish
enough to give :'■ to I, and have been repenting in
sackcloth and ashes ever sini •.
