3/J?. SHERMAN. HAPPY.
Receives a Flood of Congratulations
TJtica, N. T. Xov. 3. — James S. Sherman, the
Republican candidate for Vice-President, re
ceived the election returns at his home. In upper
G«*n**e« street, this city, surrounded by a com
. pany cf relatives and friends. The house was
supplied with long distance telephone connec
tions and a direct telegraph wire from New
Tort?, and as the bulletins were read to Mr.
Bherrnan he was congratulated by those present.
It became evident from the. start that the re
turns were not surprising to Mr. Sherman. He
had said all the time that he expected the Re
publicans would win, and he expressed no uur
prise as the returns came Indicating that the
state had gone heavily for the Republican na
tional ticket. He -was at his best, and jok^-d and
talked with his visitors In a happy frame of
mind, Congratulations came from all sections
early, and the telephones were, busy with mes
sages from home and abroad. - A large crowd
assembled in the street in front of Mr. Sherman's
home, but as no bulletins were shown in that
section at the city the crowd thinned out and
the street was comparatively quiet.
The following statement was made by Mr.
The result of the national election does not
surprise me. For the laet month I have been
as sure of Republican success -as I am to
night. The Republican party, platform and
candidate stood for stability, order, confidence,
m. continuance of prosperity based upon a con
tinuance of protection and the gold standard;
stood for the equality of al! men «nd all inter
efts before the law.
Mr. Bryan and Brynnlem attempted to array
class against class, to stir up hate, to confuse
the voter by a. multiplicity of minor alleged is
sues, and to draw attention from the tariff
plank of their platform. Mr. Taft campaign
•was dignified, forward, manly. Ho met
every issus squarely, justified by clear argument
his past acts end hi- expected administrative
policies. . The result justifies the confidence in
in* Ultimata wiaaam at ttis people's decision.

BRYA.\ CALM IN DEFEA
Gets Election Returns at His Home
— Carrie His Precinct.
Fairvlew. Lincoln, Neb.. Nov. -With the SUB
parlor of hi 3 home turned into a temporary tele
jrraph and newspaper office. Mr. Bryan to-night
watched the returns with greet interest. He was,
however, perhaps the most unconcerned among
those who had assembled to learn the people's ver
dict. Mr. Bryan divided his time between the sun
parlor and his library, where he received special
reports from state chairmen and the national com
mittee, and frequently came upstairs and read
aloud Che reports he had received. The returns
from New Turk, particularly from the upstate pre
cincts, were Of unusual interest to* him. He marie
many Inquiries regarding the result in New York
City and Ohio.-
At intervals in the early hours of the fay Mr.
Bryan would come into the sun parlor and chat
freely with the correspondents, and by way of
amusement he brought out a number of telegrams
of the freak kind which he had received, giving
him advice as to what he should do in case of his
election. "While watting for the detailed returns
Mr. and Mr?. Bryan entertained a large company
at dinner in honor of the correspondents who had
been connected with his campaign and accom
panied him en his tours. The election for the time
was forgotten. Before the dinner the guests as
sembled In the drawing room, and Mr. Bryan
treated them to a concert on the pianola, the in
strument being manipulated by himself. After
resting an hour he rejoined the party in the '■ sun
parlor and began reading the returns. His daugh
ters, Mrs. Ruth Leavitt and Miss Grace, and his
son. William, were among the group in the sun
parlor, and spent most of the evening keeping In
close touch with the situation, while Mrs. Bryan
was content to come into the room occasionally,
although Mr. Bryan kept her thoroughly posted on
Election Day at Fail-view was ushered In with
clear skies and balmy weather. Mr. Bryan was
astir early looking over a mass of telegrams re
ceived from different parts of the country giving
prophecies of a Democratic victory. At 9 o'clock
he drove in a dog cart to He.ilin's grocery store in
the little village of Normal, where at 9:15 he depos
ited ballot No. 43 in the box. As he did so a score of
voters in the store removed their hats and offered
him their best wishes. On the way to the voting
place Mr. Bryan paid a visit to a sick friend,
"Uncle Jake" Wolf, a feeble old resident of Nor
mal. Returning to his home afoot, Mr. Bryan car
ried a bundle of morning papers Into his library
and remained there for some time.
Mr. Bryan carried his precinct by 106 to 62 for
Confident of victory to the very last. Mr. Bryan
was not prepared to believe that his cause was
lost until the pluralities of his Republican oppo
nent pil^d up in such proportions as to leave no
room for doubt. When the. early returns came in
he made particular inquiries regarding the Btate
of New York, but aa the figures continued to be
rf -elved he reiled on New Tork City to offset the
heavy Taft vote above the Harlem. !Even in that
he was bitterly d'.Fappoir.ted. and he soon realized
that the state was hopelessly gone, and with it
his prospects of being elected.
According to the predictions of his managers he
was led to believe .hat he would bo elected with
out the aid of the Empire State, and he turned his
inquiries toward Ohio and Indiana. The heavy
Democratic gain in tnA 13tn Ohio district was a
source of Interest to him. He aiso got much com
fort out of a telegram from John E. Lamb, mem
ber ef the advisory committee from Indiana, stat
ing that the indications were that Indiana was
probably Democratic, and derived a good deal of
satisfaction from the fact that bis own precinct
har! glv»n him a majority.
After nearly three hours spent in his library.
Mr. Bryan came upstairs mid talked to the news
paper men and others who had assembled in the
"workroom." He read some further returns, but
they told the same, story of defeat, and he an
nounced that lie would not have any statement
to give out to-night. A large number of the voters
of his precinct came in to congratulate him on
its being carried for him, and after chatting with
them for a while he went into the house, first say
ing that be would retire at 10 o'clock.
Mrs. Leavitt, Mr. Bryan's oldest daughter, would
not concede, that her father had lost his fight, and
remained up until a late hour, believing that more
favorabl* news would be forthcoming.
At 11 p. m. Mr. Bryan sent downstairs the fol
"Ir is very gratifying to receive bo complimentary
a vote 1n my home precinct of Normal and In tho
city of I_lnr-oln. We appreciate very much this ••x
pressioa of good will on the part of our neighbors
In Republican strongholds."
CANNON WINS BY 10,500.
Considerably Above the Normal —
Union Labor for Him.
Danville. 111.. Nov. 3.— Joseph G. Cannon was re
elected to Congress to-day from the 18th Illinois
District by a plurality considerably above the nor
mal. Returns are still Incomplete, but enough fig
ures have Veen obtained to show that h<» will prob
ably have a plurality of at least 10,600. This is
estimated to be in the different counties In his
district as follows: Vermilion. 6.000; Iroquois. 1,500;
Kankakee. 2,<*"«); Edgar, 700; Clark, 200. and Cum
berland, ML The result was something of a sur
prise even to the. friends of Mr. Cannon.
The fight made against bun by various church
organizations, the Anti-Saloon League and organ
ised labor, coupled with the fact that the Demo
crats had. for the first time nine© 1*53, a complete
organisation In this district, led the Republicans to
believe that Mr. Cannon's plurality would not be
■over B,f«VO. la th» heaviest union labor precincts,
however. Cannon received es large a vote an ha
ever received before, end in some he made decided
gains. The Speaker expressed himself to-night aa
extremely gratified over the vote of confidents
given him by his constituents.':'^

done which has made possible our victory in

years. I thank you one and all for your un
selfish effort and your hard work. We have had
a lot of hard work, indeed, and a good fight.

and I would not trust myself to speak fully all
that my heart would prompt me to say. Once

The first sixteen precincts In Hamilton County
which reported their returns Indicate that while
Taft has carried Cincinnati and Hamilton Coun

The returns wore very much delayed, because
of heavy scratching throughout the city, and at
10:30 o'clock the Republican campaign man

precinct returns at the Blalne Club, the head
quarters of the Cox organization, hesitated
about making any definite statement.

Philadelphia, Nov. 4.— At la. m., with eighteen
counties Ptlll to hear from, the indications are
that Taft has carried Pennsylvania by a plural

Congressman John Dalzell, representing the 30th
Congress District, won a most signal victory yi his
great industrial bailiwick. His majority will be in

Topeka. Kan.,- Nov. 3. — Early returns indicate
that Taft has carried Kansas by 25,000 plurality, ami
that the entire Republican state and Congressional
ticket is elected by proportionate pluralities. Th©
state ticket is running close to the pluralities of
Taft, except W. R. Stubbs. Republican candidate
for Governor, who is being scratched in every pre

be elected Go\ernor, but the present returns do not
indicate that he is pulling down the Republican

Practically all of the railroad voters went to

[By Telegraph to Th* Tribune.]
Omaha Nov. 3.— Returns late to-night place the
election in this state in doubt. The Democrats
claim that Bryan has been elected by 10.000. while
the Republicans, Including "The Omaha Bee," esti
mate the plurality for Taft at 12,000.
The election of Shallenberger (Dem.) for Governor
by 15.nn0 and the election of th» entire Democratic
state ticket Is indicated. The figures are ba?«?d on
full returns from Omaha and South Omaha and
meagre returns from the state. Omaha and South
Omaha, ordinarily Republican by l.£oo to 2,000.
gave Shallenber^pr 2.250 plurality and Bryan 1.243
plurality. Hitchcock (Dem.). Congressman from
Omaha, is re-elected by 1.5C0 over Jefferies (Rep.)-
Bryan carried his precinct (Fairview) by 1«; to 52
for Taft. Forty-one precincts, outside Lincoln and
Omaha, give Taft 5.332 and Bryan 5.603. The same
precincts in 19fO gave McKinley 4.7TS and Bryan
4.812. Omaha, complete. gives Bryan 10.732, Taft
10.609, Shallenberger (Dem.), for Governor, 10.913;
Sheldon (Rep.). MB
Bryan carried Lincoln by 600, overturning a nor
mal Republican plurality of I,€oo.
'•The World-Herald' has returns from ■ pre
cincts out of 1.685 outside of Douglas County giv
ing Bryan 28.462 end Taft 2*,913. The returns on the
Governorship show that Shallenberger has mostly
run ahead of Bryan.
State returns will not be complete until Wednes
day afternoon. At midnight SM precincts outside
Omaha and Douglass counties out of 1.900 precincts
gave Taft 95.53S and Bryan 2S.JSS. Bryan's plural
