Colorado Republican; Maryland for Taft by 3,000—
Nebraska in Doubt
GREATER NEW YORK GIVES TAFT 7,000
The Republican parry received an emphatic indorsement by the pecr'.e at the
polls yesterday. Taft and Sherman electors were chosen ifl enough states to insure
the Republican nominees receiving at least 314 votes in the Electoral Coii^e.
Greater New York surprised the country by giving Taft a p. I between
7,000 and 8,000. The state above the Bronx gave him imjUS plu
rality in state 195,997.
Governor Hughes received a plurality of 136.125 abo Chan
ler's plurality in the city. Erie and Schoharie counties was 63.24: | :he Gov
ernor a plurality in the state of 72.903.
Maryland, regarded as a doubtful state, gave about 3.000 plurality to tfct Re
publican nominee for President The Republicans have probably ele . mof
six Congressmen. .
Indiana, which the Democrats claimed up to the last moment, gave Tr.rr
Ohio made the claims of Mr. Mack and other Democratic leaders ridiculous
by giving a plurality for Taft of 50.000.
West Virginia vindicated the forecasts made by Senator Scott asso
ciates by rolling up a Republican plurality of between 15.000 and 20,000.
Nebraska's vote is close, and the state is considered in doubt
New Jersey remained firm in the Republican column, with a plurafity of 65.000.
Illinois gave 170.000 plurality fcr Taft. while Pennsylvania rolled up over
The New Zngland States all gave Republican pluralities, as expected. Ufr
ley was chosen Governor of Connecticut by zbout 12.000, and all five RepabfiOß
Congressmen were re-elected.
The next House of Representatives will have a Republican majority of about
seventy. The Senate after March 4. 1909. will be nvo-thirds Republican.
Jcseph G. Cannon was again chosen Representative in nois district.
Nicholas Longworth's election is in doubt.
