St. Louis. Nor. 3— Scattered return* Indicate

[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
St. Louis, Nov. 3. — Midnight returns indicate
the election of Herbert B. Hadley. Republican, as
Governor of Missouri, by a majority ranging
between 10.000 and 20.000. He carried St. Louis
by about 12.000. St. Louis County (Independent
of St. Louis) by 6.000. leading Taft by 1,000;
Kansas City by probably 1.500. and St. Joseph
by about 1.000. His lead in some of the strong
Democratic counties, such as Greene County, by
1.200. and Cape Girardeau County, by an almost
solid vote, practically Insures his election.
It is asserted by Republicans that the entire
Republican state ticket will be elected. Many
counties known to be strong for Hadley have
not reported. The electoral vote of the state will
probably go to Bryan. Cowherd runs consider
ably behind the national ticket. R. C. Kerens
seems to have captured the Republican nom
ination for United States Senator, although
Lieutenant Governor John McKinley and As
sistant Attorney General Jfihn Kentish are close
In-hind him. Forty scattering: precincts out of
403 in St. Louis give the Republicans a lead Of
from S.OCKi to 10.000.
Governor Folk has been defeated by Senator
Stone in the balloting for United States Senator.
In this contest only Democratic bailots were
counted. The new Legislature, being Demo
cratic, will re-elect Senator Stone.
The 6th Ward in South St. Louis, which is sit
uated In the German district of the city, indi
cates a Democratic majority, with Hadley again
running: &head of the national ticket. In
four precincts oat in the state the Republicans
show a net gain of 64 votes over the vote of
1904. This sain Is shown in former Democratic
Ftrong'holds and is an index to the greneral vote
in the state. In twelve precincts In Carroll

while Hadley. for Governor, received a ma

"I confess to a very great disappointment at the

CONNERS GAME LOSER.
i Smiles as He Concedes Election of
> Taft and Hughes.
Wiiliam J. Conners, chairman of the Democratic
State Committed was a came loser. He conceded
the election of Taft and Hughes at 11 o'clock.
Chewing rapidly on a long, black cigar, but beam
ing with smiles, he declared: "We have done the
I best we could. Taft pulled Hughes through. I
' haven't fcot any explanations to make." An hour
I earlier he had said that Hughes was coming down
the state with more than 100,000 plurality. "We
i hope Chanler will carry New York County by 75,000,
Kings County by from 12.000 to 15.000, Queens by
7,000 and Richmond by 2,000." he added.
"Oh, it's a horse race yet!" exclaimed the chair
man." but those who know him reaJlsed that ho
had thrown up the sponge. Asked -where hp had
been most disappointed. Chairman Conners declared
he had never given Chanler mere than 18,000 in
Kings County, but he had looked for 100.000 in the
Tammany Hell territory — Manhattan and The
Bronx. "There have been flukes here and there,
but I will not discuss them now." he said.
Chairman Conners conceded the state to Taft at
10 o'clock. He said the Republicans had got th*
people scared to death of Bryan. Ho refused to
i attribute the defeat of Chanler to the weakness of-
Bryan. "Bryan made a good run." he declared.
William F. Sheehan, who has put up heavily for
the Chanler fund, was with Chairman Conners late
In the evening, but would not talk of the result.
MACK BURIED IN GLOOM.
Bryan's Defeat Taken Hard at
Chairman Mack of the Democratic National Com
mittee ct 11 o'clock last night declared he would
not make any statement until he had received
definite new? from Ohio. Indiana, Illinois and other
Western states. A talk with the Chicago head
quarters over the long distance wire did not
produce anything encouraging.

"Nothing but gloom in these returns."

Chairman Mack of the Democratic National Com

campaign received the returns. It grew deeper ar.i

followed by dejection.

S. Hudspeth. vice-chairman of the national com
mittee: Dr. John W. Cox, assistant treasurer; John
R. Burton, assistant secretary; Jos*phus Daniels,
national committeeman from North Carolina, and
Representative John Wesley Games. John H.

hand man of Mayor McClellan. had a seat at the
left of Chairman Mack for an hour or so, but went
Returns were received over two telephone wires
of the long distance service and a wire of The As
sociated Press. The room was on the Broadway
side of the hotel, and the noise from the street
was so deafening that It was hard to catch the fig
ures as they were read off. This racket got on the
nerves of the leaders a» the evening wore on. and
they left the room frequently to collect themselves.
Things had reached such a sad state at 7:30
o'clock that Mr. Daniels was moved to applaud
when he heard that North Carolina had gone for
Bryan by 60.000. Chairman Mack clapped his
hands half-heartedly. It was the only Intimation
of enthusiasm in the entire evening.
"Here is some real news," said a. man from th«
South. "Louisiana gives 40.000 for Bryan." Every
body laughed. "We ought to hear from Alabama,"
remarked Mr. Daniels.
What seemed to cut morn deeply than anything
el*e were the figures showing that Bryan was run
ning behind the Parker vote of four years ago.
The gloom deepened when it was announced that
Maryland had gone Republican by 5,000. "Have
you heard from Texas yet?" some one. asked Sena
tor Culberson. He HBltod inly as he replied,
"We are saving that for the dessert."
There were half a dozen women In the room. In
cluding Mrs. Mack and Mrs. Cox. At 9 o'clock j
Mrs. Mack wrote a note to her husband, saying:
"Brace up. Don't look so sad. It is not all over
yet. I have seen a ball game won In the last of
the ninth inning."
Chairman Mack smiled, but It seemed an effort.
At 10 o'clock he went out alone and. picking up ex-
Mayor McGulre of Syracuse in the hall, went to
a quiet corner of the palm room to eat.
