yesterday. He captured nil of the
twenty-eight delegates to the national
convention. For a time It looked as If
President Taft might hnve six dele
gates, but later returns swept these dis
tricts from his list nnd there was prac
tically no doubt about the result early
this morning. It was estimated that
Col. Hoosevelt's plurality wns between
13,000 nnd 30,000 In the State.
Gov. Wilson won n clean cut victory.

At midnight It was estimated that
President Tnft had six out of the twenty

shift. In the Third Congress district,
Monmouth county, which hnd been a
standoff, shifted to the Hoosevelt col

seemed certain that this district was hi?.

conceded that Hoosevelt had carried thn

George I,, Hecord, the leader of the
progressives in .li-ryey City, said that
the vote would be :t vs, t0 l for Hoosevelt.
