Democratic chairmen of Pennsylvania,
Kansas and Idaho late last night wired

It might require an clllctal canvass to
make sure that Wilson had lost. They
were emphatic In their claims of vic

Late In the night came the news that

votes, the greatest number ever given
to a Presidential candidate; Roosevelt

latest figures. Tim Progressives will
have seventeen members.
The Senate Is still In douht. At best
the Democrats cannot hopo to control It
by more than a slight majority, but lata
last night the results In Michigan,
Illinois and Colorado woe still In

The Senate as constituted to-day con

Democrats, thero being three vacancies.
The terms of thlrty-flve Senators expire

In adjacent States New Jersey elected

NARROW MARGIN IN MAINE.

Portmnd, Me., Nov. 6. With only
l.lno plantations missing out of a total
of 521 towns, cities and plantations In
tho State Wilson's Maine vote totals
50,946, Roosevelt's totals 48,387, Taft
has 26.504, Debs 2,672 and Chafln 6S1
These nine plantations cast a total of
only 140 votes four years ago.
Wilson's plurality over Roosevelt now
stands at 2,559 and his plurality over
Taft 24,442. Four years ago Taft had
66,989 votes and Uryan 35,403, show
Ing a plurality of 31,586.
The vote of Debs this year shows an
Increase of 52 per cent, over the 1908
The extent to which the Republican
voto fell off was beyond expectations
and party leaders are at a loss to ex
plain it. Roosevelt's strength wos be
yond expectations. In fact Wilson's
margin wus so close that there was
doubt well Into Tuesday night.
Four years ago Taft carried all the
sixteen counties of the Stute. This year
ho carried none. Wilson carried nine
counties and Roosevelt seven. Four
years ago Taft carried 18 of the
cities. This year he carried only East
ort' lstm carrying thirteen and
Roosevelt six. No Congressmen were
voted for In Maine,

Women had a finger in tho plo of every
political party this year. It was only
a finger and didn't loom very largo com
pared with tho fists of the men. But the
femlnino digit Htirred good and hard
wherever nml whenever it got a chanoe.
At tho Bull Moomo headquarters, .Sena
tor Iixon was asked whether ho thought
the work of tho women had dono any
roal good in tho Hoohevolt campaign.
"Why." declared tho Senator with
solemn conviction,"tho women ought to
get a modal from tho Bull Moose iarty.
Got your pencil? Because I want you
to get this straight. ou may say this
from me; that for the first time in tho
history of political campaigns in tills
country women havo been a positive,
definite factor. Our women. I mean; tho
women of the Bull Moose party. The
work of most of the others was a joke.
"But the women who have leen work
ing for UooHovelt women Uka Jano Ad
dams, Frances Kollor and others lika
them had as much influence and won
a many votes as any man could. Tho
principles of the Progressive party appeal
to tho finest tyo of women in tho land.
They have flocked to it standard. They
did not only good work but offectlvo
work. And they aro going to lie ono of
the biggest factor in winning sucenss
next time. And that's tho honest truth."

that she doesn't caro for the present

Had the women really helped elect a

guessed they had.

"Lord, yes!" ho exclulmcd. "Oh, I
admit that wo need them on our side.
And as for tha fool women well, there's
a fool man to offset every ono of tlieni."
Jack Hammond, who has managed to
get a few items concerning the Ucmo
cratlo candidates beforo the publlo in
course of the last six months, said that ho
knew personally of votes that had been
gained by the women workers for Wilson,
lie declared that Mabel Potter Daggett's
"Letter to tho nousckeeior hud been
ono of the beet shots in the whole Demo

"That letter went to thousands of wompn

of ono man, with a salary of ItH.noo a year,
who was converted by thnt letter. He

received tho letter and Iwgan to ais its
argument on to him. First ho switched
to Hoosevelt. But his wire continued
nuietlv to administer tho wisdom she had
imbll)ed from the Daggett letter and
finally he came around to Wilson.
"I know of other concrete case of vote
winning by woman. Miss Alberta Hill,
for instauco, was one of tho liert speakers
we had. She lined up with tho Ixxit men
speakers. And then, back of it all, there
is a big cumulative effect of having tho
women 'for you.' H is subtle, hard to
get at. But It's there. Vou'vo got to
