Put forward a demand for a minimum of

Chairman Barnes Estimates Only Seven Out of
Ninety in Entire State Elected for
BIG CONFUSION ? ALL OVER CITY
Delay in Delivering Ballots to Polling Places Cause of
Extraordinary Irregularities?Dix Is Asked to De?
clare Election in Brooklyn Invalid in Consequence.
Report, from the entire state last night indicated that Mr. Taft
had ? arricl all except eight delegate** nut of the ninety to the Repub?
lican National Convention.
State Chairman Barnes said his estimate was not more than seven
i for Mr. Roosevelt.
The yules in the contest in this city gave the Taft candidates a
plurality of more than .*? to 1 over the Roosevelt candidates, but the
"polling was -<' irregular, owing to the wildest sort of confusion arising
from late distribution of the ballots, that both voting and returns
were highly incomplete.
The Roosevelt court motions were said to have delayed the printer
in completing the voting forms, through causing changes to be made
up to practically the last day, and for this reason ballots reached many

It was stated in Brooklyn that Governor Dix had been asked to
declare the election in Kings County invalid on account of the troubles
arising there, as in other boroughs, from the delay in the delivery of

Samuel S. Koenig, president of th?

"Notwithstanding the vigorous ef?
forts of the Roosevelt committee, the
personal effort of Colonel Roosevelt
to stampede the voters at the eleventh
hour, and the enormous expenditure
of t.ioney in the colonel's behalf, the

"This is very gratifying to the
county organization, which so loyally
supported the President.
"Of course, the official count of the
ballots by the state officials duly
authorized has not yet been made,
but the indorsement of President Taft
on the first unofficial count is so tre?
mendous that there can no longer be
any thought throughout the country
that the radical platform of the
colonel can be supported in New

* The wildest sort of confusion iKCUrwi
J yesterday when the first official prlmarv
| waa held In thla city. The ballots were
not delivered until late in a majority of
the Assembly districts, and In some poll
: in? places, particularly in the nutlyin*
I districts, no ballots were received at all
! until the polls were closed.
It was evident last night that the
, Roosevelt manager.! were preparing kg
'make the most out of this mix-up ov?e
| the ballots and would contest the ele?
? lion on the ground that many votSH
! had not had the opportunity of voting.
The Roosevelt managers instructed
their watchers in the various polling
| places where the ballots were late to
take the names and addresses of those
?who came and were about to go ??-.??
again because the ballota had not ar
j rived. They asked su<-h men to make a
? statement t at they had heen unable tc
?vote because of the lack of ballots, pre
I paring later to get affidavits to be used
In court actions.
There was much speculation last nigh*
as to Just what effect on the election of
organization committees, as well as dele?
gates to the national convention, the de?
lay In the ballots would have. In oases
where the ballota did not arrive at all
it was a question as to whether the com?
mittees and delegates voted for In that
particular district could he ?.ailed legally

Abraham B. O?bert. chairman of th?
law committee of the Repuhll? an County
?'ommittee. said that the law provided
that whenever the official ballots wera
not furnished unofficial ballots, printed
or written In much the manner of the
nftb ial ballots, could be used. In some
! districts an attempt was made to write
such ballots, but this was hard to do
because the ballot was so complicated.
In some of the districts In ?ueens and
The Bronx the ballots did not arriva
until after 0 o'clock, at which time th*
law saya the polls must close. Certain
election districts in the .Id Assembly
District In Manhattan did not receiva
any ballots at all. In the 16th As?
sembly District some of the ballots did
not arrive until 8 o'clock; some in the
28th District came .hortly after 7
o'clock. In the 27th District it was after
?.:.'_> o'clock when the. ballots arrived.

.1. O. Brltt, prealdent of the Board of
Election, declared that the trouble waa
caused by ' i legal actions brought by
the Roosevelt city committee and by
reason of the fact that the balbits wera
so large thai It took more time to print
them than usual. He favored a law that
would make changes in the ballot im?
possible after a certain date.
The statement of Mr. Gilbert waa as
In ever> ?ase where it was reported Hut
the ballots had not been delivered. Hi?
inspector- were advised that unofficial hal

inspectors were advised to ?end to the n? ai

containing the names of ihe same candi?

as official ballots. No person should have

the official ballot.
