A POPULAR UPRISING
New York, Nov. 9. -President Roosevelt has been elected by a popular j
majority over Judge Parker of 1,792,000, and in the electoral college with
have 343 votes to Parker's 133. Chief of the many remarkable features of
the election Is the break in the solid south, Missouri and Maryland going
Esopus, N. Y., Nov. 9.At 8:30
o'clock last night Judge Parker sent
this telegram to the president:

have emphatically approved your ad
ministration and I congratulate you.

Roosevelt's reply to Judge Parker's
telegram was as follows:
"Alton B. Parker, Rosemount, N Y.:
I thank you for your congratulations.

New York, Nov. 9.Not only are the
maiorities given the republican national
ticket in early reports confirmed by the
more complete counts of today and in
wme instances increased over earlier
figures, but the claim is made that the
once solid south has beon broken and
Missouri has gone republican.
"With every former doubtful state ad
mittedly in the Roosevelt column, with
majorities in some states in excess of
those given McKinley four years ago,
and in some instances even greater than
those of 1896, capped by the possibility
that the hitherto invincible and histori
cally democratic south has been invad
ed, last night's surprise has been turned
to amaze even in the most enthusiastic
When at a late hour last night it was
reported that Missouri was doubt and
some of the republican managers were
admitting that they had hopes of suc
cess, it was hardly credited by the ma
-jority of the republicans and was
laughed at by democrats. But late re
turns seem to indicate that these claims
may be well grounded and in the
absence of full and complete figures of
the vote the assertion that Missouri has
forsaken jts democratic allegiance on
national issues is coming to be accepted
as a probability. Should the official
count bear out the republican claim of
today, Mr. Roosevelt's vote in the elec
toral college will be 343, a plurality of
Maryland for Roosevelt.
Maryland, which was conceded to the
democrats by conservative republicans,
has gone republican by a small majority
but enough to safely place it in the vic
torious column. Colorado is still
claimed by both parties.

Beginning with the tremendous ma
jority of 400,000 in Pennsylvania, the
republican pluralities are decisive in
nearly every state carried for their tick
et, and it seems probable that Roosevelt
has received the greatest popular vote
ever given a presidential candidate.
Returns thus far received indicate that
he will receive a popular plurality of
slightly over one million three hundred
thousand, against 849,790 for McKinley
The sentiment which swept the re
publican candidates into office will be
reflected in the next house of represen
tatives. From figures obtained by the
Associated Press, the republicans have
elected 233 representatives and the
democrats 141, the twelve remaining
districts yet to be heard from being
now equally divided between the two
parties. The republican majority in the
next house will therefore be at least
More from Missouri.
Another surprise came from Missouri
in the admission that the legislature is
in doubtt the republicans now claiming
that on joint ballot they will have two
majority. As this legislature will elect
a successor to TJnitea States Senator
Cockrell, the situation is made more
than ordinarily interesting, and the of
ficial count on the legislature will be
awaited with as keen anxiety as that
for president. The election of Mr.
Folk, the democratic candidate for gov
ernor, is conceded.

CITY (83 PRECINCTS)
(This verifies the Jones predictions,
as the later returns are reducing
Hennepin is safely republican.
A lead of more than nine thousand
for Roosevelt, with less than half the
returns in, shows this.
Nevertheless, Hennepin county joins
with many othetf counties ,thruout the
state in expressing its disapproval of
the republican candidate for governor,
who made a very poor second to John
A. Johnson in Minneapolis and its sur
rounding voting districts.
Aside from the gubernatorial contest,
chief interest centered in the struggle
for the mayoralty. Early in the day
Haynes started in with a lead of a
thousand. Jones' managers,
owever, refused to worry over this con
dition and confidently predicted that
later returns would overcome the
democratic candidate's lead. With
eighty-three precincts reporting, this
prediction is in part verified, for the
present mayor's lead has been reduced
to a little more than seven hundred.
Precincts still to be heard from are
Btrongly republican, and Jones' defeat
is by no means assured.
Another contest on the city ticket
which attracted much interest was that
between Clifford W. Thompson and F. G.
McMillan for the board of education.

1 WHAT MINNESOTA DID
Minnesota has given Roosevelt a tidal plurality of 120,000.
of that fact, Johnson has been elected governor by a plurality now esti-
mated at 15,000, with practically every county in the state heard from, at 2j*'
least partially. Data on lieutenant governor and supreme judges are not 13
It is believed from the fragmentary
but well distributed returns now in
hand that his plurality will reach the
comfortable figure of 15,000.
The Dunn managers are sick at heart
but outwardly they have not yet given
up. They are hoping against hope that
the back districts with their rural vote
will yet overcome the Johnson majori
ties in the urban, city and village dis
tricts. The Pioneer Press this morn
ing declares that when the returns are
all in Dunn will have 10,000 leeway, but
editorially says that the state is in
doubt. The' Minneapolis Tribune,
Dunn organ, concedes that Johnson is
The fact, however, that the returns
now are so well distributed and so
representative of all parts of the state,
indicates that the Dunn hopes are as a
rope of sand. Hennepin county will
give Johnson all the way from 5,000
to 6,000 plurality. Ramsey gives him
1,500 or more to the good.
Eock-ribbed counties in southern
Minnesota which never before gave a
democratic majority, are reporting
Johnson pluralities. Bice county goes
1,000 for Johnson. Nicollet, Johnson's
home, tho strongly republican indorses Mower

neighboring counties of Le Sueur and Nobles

Dunn was cut unmercifully also in
the central and western counties of the
state, losing Kandiyohi, Meeker, Ren
ville, Chippewa, Lac qui Parle and
other strong counties. The hard cam
paign work of the senators and con
gressmen held counties like Stevens and
Traverse in line, but when counties like
Pope and Chisago break loose from the
republican column, it is evident that
there is a revolution in the party that
not even the party's heavy weight can
Dunn made gains in some northern
counties where the vote has increased.
He beat Van Sant's vote in St. Louis
and Beltrami. Dakota and Houston
counties, on nationality grounds,
showed a, gain for IJunn.
The enormous plurality for Roose
velt was not Ipoked for by anyone. It
was supposed that with Roosevelt run
ning over 80,000 ahead of Parker, there
would be a certainty of Dunn's elec
tion. The Packer vote went glimmer
