in so far or about 2,800.
There were nine candidates for dels
gates at large on the Taft tloket, one ot
them put there by petition, with only
eight to be elected. A vot for all nine
of these invalidate the voter's choice
and count nothing for any of them.
Enough voter seem to have, made thin
error to elect the eight delegates on the
Roosevelt ticket and to defeat the regular
Taft eight, headed by Senator W. Murray
Crnne and former Governor John L. Bates.
The Taft alternates, of whom there ars
eight, are probably successful.
Taft delegates have been elected In
the First, Second. Third. Sixth. Tenth.
Uleventh. Twelfth and Thirteenth Con
The Fourth. Fifth. Ninth nnd Four

tricts are In doubt.
In atl probability the eight delegates
nt large will be Roosevelt men.

League executive committee said al
1:30 o'clock this morning that President
Taft had carried the State by from

be more thnn the latter figure because
he thought the eight regular delegate
at large pledged to Taft might pull
through In thai ense.

the Taft people when they tame In
