LEGISLATURE IN DOUBT
Democrats Have Gained, but
May Not Be Able to Unsent
Bostok, Nov. 6. As was predicted
before tho polls opened, Wilson and
Marshall carried Massachusetts by a
substantial plurality to-day. the first
time in the history of tho Bay Stato that
its electoral votes will be cast for Demo
cratic candidates for President and Vice
President. Foss and Walsh, tho Domocratio candi
dates for Governor and Lieutenant
Governor, were also successful at the
polls, tho third successive time the former
has been elected und the llrst time for a
great many years that a Democrat has
been chosen for the second highest State
office. The reelection of Fohs was ox
pocted in view of tho presence on ths
ticket of a Bull Moose candUate. but the
defeat of Lieut.-Gov. llobert Luc is a
disappointment to the Hepublicans.
Tho present, f Col. Roosevelt's name
on tho ticket practically split the Ile
publtcan vote in two. The candidacy of
Charles S. Bird, Progressive nominee
for Governor, pulled many thousands
from Joseph Walker, the Republican
nominee, and in ado another win by Fois
A big voto waa oast all over the State.
Returns from tho ConRrcssionil dis
tricts so far tabulated do not indicate
nny change yet in the political com
plexion or tho Congreasional delegation,
but thero are probabilities that tho Demo
crats havo mado a slight gain.
The votes on candidates for tho Legis
lature havo not been sufficiently tab
ulated yot to show if tho Democrats will
control it. but they have mado gains.
The Democrats lacked twenty-six of n
mnjoritv in tho House last year nnd
seven in the Senate. It is thought some
of the Bull Moose candidates may havo
leen successful in their fight for seats
under the sacred codfish, if tho Dnmn.
crats control the Legislature it mean?
the election of John I Fitzgerald, Mayor
of Boston, as United States Henutor to
succeed W. Murray Crane.
At this hour it is not known how tho
remainder of tho Republican Stato ticket
fared, but tho leaders are confident t hat
OVerV office excont that f flnvnranr
und Lieutenant-Governor will Ik, flllod
as usual by Itenumicans. In other quar
ters thero nro indications thit Secretary
of State Lnngtry is in danger of defeat.
Taft ranM-cond to Wilson in Massachu
setts but tho Colonol was a close third.
Roosevelt beat Taft in Boston by 371
votes, but Wilson had n plurality over the
former of 21.15S in this city. The total
voto for President in Boston was 85.431.
Wilson received 42.700. Rooaovult 21.54R.
Tho total voto cast for Governor in
Boston was 81.205. Foss received 4H.2S2.
Bird 1H.717, Walker 17.21W. Fosb's plurality
in Boston over Bird. 29.505. Walker ran
ahead of Bird outside tho city and finished
in second piace.
Two hundred and seventy towns out
side of Boston envo Wilson 3(1,(190, Taft
45.800. Roosevelt 39.014. Two hundred
and eighty towns gave Foss 42,013, Walker
IV.OfJ, tliru 311,310.
The Koss estimated plurality Is 43,931,
tho largest he has ever received. Tho
total estimated voto of the Stato fur
Governor was 454.27C. Hused on these
figures Foss received 191,017, Walker
147,060, Bird 116,192.
The estimated vote for President gives
Wilson a plurality of 20,000. The esti
mated vote for tho Stato for President
Is: Wilson, 170,000: Taft, 150,000,
Roosevelt, 143,000. ,
For Lieutenant-Governor. Walsh has
a good lead on returns as far us they
como In. Two hundred and sixty towns
outside Boston give him 37,033, as
against 36,863 last year. Luce has 45,869,
as against 59,863 last year, while Cos
grove has 25,945. These figures give
Luco a lead outside Boston of S.236.
It is expected that on Joint ballot for
United States Senator tho Legislature
will bo very close. Of sixty-four can
dlJates for Representatives so far known
to bo elected, 32 are Republican, 27 are
Democrats, 3 are Progressives, and one
Is a SoclAllst. Tills is a gain for tho
Democrats, and there Ih n possibility
that tho Progressives may hold tho hal
ancp of power.
Boston, Nov. 5, Chairman Maynard
of tho Democratic city committee claims
tho election of twenty-two Democratic
Stnto Hcnntors In a total ot forty dis
tricts. Jjist year the Scnnto wns
strongly Republican. Mr. Muynurd had
no definite Information regarding tho
complexion of thn House, hut henrd
from a leading newspaper Uiat tho Leg
islature was easily Democratic.
Chairman Maynard has been manag

Senatorial campaign fur lilrn and Is con
fident thut tho Muyor will bo chosen to

Congressman McCall's old district, tho
Klghth, fell Into Democratic hands.
Frederick W. Dalllnger, the Republi
can nominee, led Frederick S. Deltrlck
by 500 outside Cambridge, but In that
city the Democratic nominee led his
opponent by 1,500.
The result In the Fourth district Is
still In doubt at 1 A. M. Samuel .K.
Wlnslow. Republican, leads Congress
man John A. Thayer by about 1,000
outside Worcester, returns from which
havo not come In.
In the Thirteenth district Congress
man John W. Weeks led John J.
Mitchell, his Democratic opponent,
slightly outside of Newton, Wultham,
Marlboro nnd Ward 25, Boston.
Newton Is Republican, but whether It
Is sufficiently strong enough to over
come the Democratic strength In the
other three places remains to be seen.
Congressman Robert O. Harris of the
Fourteenth, was defeated by F.dward
Gllmoro of Brockton, n Democrat. The
candidacy of Col. Henry L. Klncalde of
Qulncy. a Hull Moose nominee, cut Into
Judge Harris's vote.
Returns from nbout one-half of the
Representative districts show the elec
tion of threo Progressives to the lower
branch of tho Legislature and no gain
for the Democrats.
At 12:30 this (Wednesday) morning
Mnynr Fitzgerald left City Hall elated
over the Democratic success on the na
tional und Stntu tickets but somewhat
dejected over the legislative possibil
ities. While the Democrats are prac-
j tlcally certain, of n small majority In
tho Senate, the outlook Is that the Re
publicans will have a Mnall majority In
Tlic, Progressives will hold the bal
ance of power nnd tho Indications are
that some person other than the Mayor
may be chosen United States Senator
If this Is the case. The Progressives
probably would not vote for Mayor
Fitzgerald for that office, yet they might
be willing to support either Charles S.
Hamlin, Gov. Foss or Sherman L.
