ROOSEVELT WINS TREMENDOUS VICTORY
HIGGINS ELECTED GOVERNOR OF NEW- YORK.
LANDSLIDE IN NEW-YORK.
The plurality given to Roosevelt in his own State will not be far from 170.000,
which is about 30,000 more than McKinley received four years ago. Most of this
gain was made outside of the City of New- York.
At midnight figures on the Governorship in the entire city were as follows:
Higgins, 192,213; Herrick, 244,286.
The full effect of the ground swell on the Congress delegation of this State
is not yet known. There have been gains in the Ist. IYth, Yth, Ylth, XHlth, XVth
and XVIIth, and probably the IXth. Out 0/ 37 members 27 or 28 wall be Repub
licans.
For Governor Higgins displayed surprising strength. He had about 175,000
plurality outside of Greater New-York, and it will hardly be necessary to deduct
more than 50,000 from this for the city. His net plurality is about 100.000.
The Republicans have gained eight Senators, carrying the Ist, IYth, Ylth, IXth,
XYITth, XlXth. XXXIYth and XLVIIth districts. The Senate will divide 37 to 13,
as against 29 to 21 last year.
The next legislature will be overwhelmingly Republican, insuring the election
of a Republican Senator. The Republicans have gained 7 seats in each branch.
The Senate will divide 36 to 14, and the Assembly 104 to 46, giving a Republican
majority of 82 on joint ballot.

Bald:
"Owlnf to differences in time and gTeater dis
tances In the Western States, the returns are
"eagre and Incomplete. They Indicate, how

prevails In the West, and j think we Justify
our claims that we will carry every doubtful
6tat«. I would revise my pre-election estimate
b y giving Roosevelt 817 Instead of 31L The
result of the election Indicates that the people
are eatltflefi with the record of the Republican
P»rty for eight years, and. In addition to a
Party indorsement, the victory is a great per

VERIFIES ITS FORECAST.
Tribune Prophesied That Roosevelt
Would Carry Kings.
The returns In Kings County amply justified tin
forecast published by The Tribune on October 30.
which, In a detailed statement, showed that Roose
velt would probably get a pluarllty of 2,642. The
Tribune stuck to this forecast, In spite of the vari
ous canvasses giving a large vote for Parker, and
a postal card poll by a Brooklyn newspaper, In
dicating a Parker plurality of 41,000.
In its forecast on the Congress, Senate and As
sembly elections, The Tribune was even too conser
vative, in cpite of predictions that the Republicans
would elect only a few of their candidates. The
Tribune stated that the Republican* would prob
ably elt-ct three Congressmen out of six, three Sen
ators out of seven and eight Assemblymen out of
twenty-one. Tiie returns show th« probable elec
tion of a fourth Congressman, a fourth Senator and
thirteen. Instead of eight, Assemblymen.
Governor Odell, prior to the returns last night
could not be brought to believe that Kings County
would give a plurality for Rooeevelt. On Saturday
nijfht. while travelling between the meeting? In
Brooklyn. John R. Smiih. the secretary of the
Kings County Republican Committee, kept telling
Governor Odell that Koosevelt would curry the
county
• \V.'ll. I tell you what I'll do," said the Gover
nor, finally. "If that happens I will give you a
good dinner."
"I>oes that mean only me?" asked "Johnniy
Smith.
"No." said the Governor "I will give a dinner
to the entire Kings County Campaign Committee
at one of the beat hotels In the city."

PRESIDENT SAYS HE WILL NOT BE CANDIDATE AGAIN-
TWO TERMS ENOUGH, HE ANNOUNCES IN FORMAL
STATEMENT THANKING THE PEOPLE.
[FROM THE TIUBVNE BUBKAC]
Washington. Nov. 8. — The President to-night issued the following statement:
I am deeply sensible of the honor done me by the American people in thus ex
pressing their confidence in what I have clone and have tried to do. I appreciate to
the full the solemn responsibility this confidence imposes upon me and I shall do all
that in my power lies not to forfeit it. On the fourth of March next I shall have
served three and a half years, and this three and a half years constitutes my first term.
The wise custom which limits the President to two terms regards the substance and
not the form, and under no circumstances will I be a candidate for or accept another
nomination.
COXGKA Tl r LA TIONS.
PARKER TO ROOSEVELT.
Says People Have Emphatically Approved
Administration.
Esopus. N. V., Nov. S.— At 8:30 o'clock to-night
Judge Parker sent this telf-gram to the Presi
dent:
Rosemount, Esopus, N. T., Nov. S. S:3O p. m.
The President, Washington, D. C:
The people by thtir votes have emphatically
approved your administration, and I congratu
late you. ALTON* B. PARKKH.
ROOSEVELT TO PARKER
President Thanks Democratic Candidate for
Congratulations.
Wa*hln B ton. Nov. S -President Roosevelt's re
ply to Judge Parkers telegram was as follows:
Alton B. Parker. Rosomo-.int, N. T.
i th«nk you for your congratulations.
I th.nk you THEODORE ROOSEVELT.
President Roosevelt shortly B fter 9 o'clock to
night received the following telegram from Sen
ator Fairbanks:
Indications are that you have carried Indiana
by largely increased plurality. Returns are
meagre.
William Barnes. Jr.. chairman of the Repub
lican State Executive Committee of New-York,
telegraphed:
Your majority in the State will exceed 250.000.
Higgins will have about 100.000.
FAIRBANKS GRATIFIED.
He Gets the Newt That Every
Doubtful State Is Co-needed.
Indianapolis. Nov. 8.-fienator Fairbanks,
when told in * New-York dispatch that the
Democratic National Committee had conceded
every doubtful State to Roosevelt and Fair
banks, was much pleaaed over the news, but
would give no expression.
Senator Fairbanks' hat a ■perial wire In hi«
residence connects, with the White House ut

COST BELMONT $400,000.
Advanced This Money To Be Repaid
tcith Trust Contributions.
It was learned last tiight that the Parker cam
paign cost August BeJmont ahtout $400,(H.xa
This, it is understood, is the aggregate of the
sums advanced by Mr. Helmont in the campaign,
and there Is HttU probability that he will be
able to g-^t back any considerable percentage
of it.
The fact that ho supplied the sinews of war
to this extent surprised Democrats last night.
Little by little the inside history of the Parker
campaign is coming to light. One of the most
interesting features is tha' Mr. Btlmont stood
sponsor for a great m.my of the costly efforts
of the can vacs. The money was advanced from
time to time with the understanding. It is said,
that when the trusts came forward with the
Bums tentatively pledged to the Parker can
vass Mr. Kelmonf loans would be refunded.
They have not been refunded, and it was said
last night a serious misunderstanding had
;,.risi-n concerning ihe failure of certain heads of
corporations to "stt'p up to the captain's office
and settle." Mr. Helmont is not saying much
about it. but it is understood there will be
"something doing" unless certain gentlemen
who were anxious to defeat Roosevelt because
he was independent of the trusts do not come
forward with their checks.
ME. CORTELYOUS CONGRATULATIONS.
Two Hearty Messages to the President from
His Party's Chairman.
Mr. Cortelyou, chairman of the Republican
National Committee, sent the following tele
grams to the President last night:
New-York, November 8.
To the President, White House. Washington:
The country has given an overwhelming vote
of confidence in you and your administration.
My associates of the Republican National Com
mittee Join me in heartiest congratulations.
GEORGE B. CORTELYOU.
The second dispatch read:
New-York. November 8.
To the President. White House. Washington:
I keenly appreciate your message of congrat
ulation, and acknowledge It as well In behalf of
my loyal and devoted associates of the Repub
lican National Committee. Am personally most
deeply gratified by the splendid Indorsement
you have received from your countrymen.
GEORGE B. CORTELYOU.
The message of congratulation from the Presi
dent, to which reference was made in th" second
dispatch, was, Mr. Cortelyou eald last night, of
Much a personal nature that hi- preferred not to
J».\s» it to the publUi.
ROOSEVELT. 314: PARKER. 162.
The Republican party won vestcrdav a most sweeping and impressive national
victory. Roosevelt and Fairbanks electors were chosen in every one of the - -\ -ȟbt
tul" States claimed so vociferously by the Democratic campaign managers. At this
writing 314 Republican elector.; appear to have been chosen, with Maryland
and Nevada in the doubtful column. The assured Republican plurality in t
Electoral College is 152. Parker and Davis were beaten worse than Bryan and
SewaO in 1896 or Bryan and Stevenson in ioxx).
The LlXth Congress will be strongly Republican in both branches. In the Sen
ate the Republicans will probably lack only two votes of a two-thirds majority.
The next House of Representatives will probably be Republican by about seventy
plurality.
New-York gave the Roosevelt electoral ticket the largest plurality on rer^r !
in a Presidential year, except possibly in 1890. and all over the country an extraor
dinary wave of Republican sentiment made itself felt through the ballot box.
New- York gave Roosevelt a plurality of over 200,000.
New-Jersey went Republican by over foyooa
Connecticut gave a Republican plurality of 25.000.
Indiana was Republican by from 50.000 to 70.000.
West Virginia, the home oi the Democratic candidate for Vice-President, gave ■
Republican plurality of 25,000 or over.
The vote in Maryland was exceedingly close, and an official count may be re
quired to determine the result.
Delaware gave the Republican electors a plurality of 5.000.
Parker ran behind Watson in Nebraska, and Roose\ek had a plurality o* "
from 20,000 to 30,000.
Roosevelt carried Wisconsin by a heavy plurality, and the La Follette State
ticket was successful.

ILLINOIS.
Roosevelt's PluraUtj/ Placed at
150,000.
Chicago. Nov. X— Roosevelt and Fairbanks
have carried the State of Illinois by a plurality
conservatively estimated at l.V).t«>o. which i^ in
excess of that given McKinley in li«*> The
chairman of the Republican State Central C«n
mittee 1 asserts that Roosevelfs plurality will be
200.000, A feature of the election Is that Dtfca,
the Socialist candidate, has polled .1 vote from
rt< >,(>»«► to 70.000 In the State, of which about
60.000 is in the city of Chicago. Deneen. the Re
publican candidate for Governor, haa a plurality
close to that for the national ticket.
An enormous amount of scratching has been
done by the Democrats as a rebuke to the Hop
kins methods used in nominating Stringer The
vigorous scratching makes It Impossible to give
accurate results on the election of Congressmen
in some of the districts and In regard to n;lno
offices, but It is conceded that the entire Repub

elected, with probable gains In the Congress >le"-

At a late hour the chairman of the Illinois
State Republican Committee made the follow

ur.paralietM plurality. Th« returns Indicate
tnat he will carry the State by IIXXHR). Mr.
Peneen is elected Governor by the greatest plu

Indications point to the victory of the entire
