HEAVY GAINS IN
Congressional and Legislative
Elections Strengthen Ee
Gain in Senate.
If the complete figures should sup
port these conclusions the present ma
lonty of twenty-four in the senate will
be increased to twenty six. The situa
tion at least wair-mts the statement
that the present large republican excess
in that b-)dv will be maintained.
Much personal concern is expressed
over the possible defeat of Senator
Cockrell, who has been in the senate so
long that Washington regards him as
practical^- one of her residents. He
rame to the senate in 1877, and next to
Senator Allison holds the record for the
longest continuous senatorial service.
The result with refernece to the sen
ate is considered as going far towards
insuring a republican senate for a long
time in the future.
Control of House.
Republicans are claiming that the
complete returns will five them control
of the house bv not less than eightv
votes and the tendency of the vote in
the close districts appears to justify
this calculation. This is more than
double the present maiorit-y and is more
than the boldest of them claimed prior
to the election.
Chairman Cowherd, who is himself
among the fallen, conceded defeat in the
house as earlv as 8 o'clock last night,
but he remained at his post at demo
cratic headquaiters, until 7 o'clock this
morning, receiving news of his own de
feat befoie lea\mg for his home. He
made no comment bevond saying that
he had been able to give no attention
to his district in the campaign.

about twenty thousand.
Of the peninsula fifteen members of.

Roosevelt's Majority Likely to
Is in Doubt.
Bpeolal to The Journal.
Helena, Mont., Nov. 9,*It is safe to
redict that Roosevelt's majority in
will exceed ten thousand.
Chairman Mantle, in a statement issued
this morning, estimates the president's
majority at 11,000 and others place it
as high as 15,000. If present gains
over McKinley's vote are maintained
thruout the state, Roosevelt's majority
will reach about twelve thousand.
Another surprise to be found in the
returns is the surprisingly strong race
made by William Lindsay, the repub
lican nominee for governor. While the
returns indicate the re-eleetion of Gov
ernor Toole by about two thousand,
many republican leaders predict Lind
say's election. It is believed, how
ever, in conservative quarters, that
Toole's majority will not fall below
the 2,000 mark.
The race on congressman is also
close. The chances, however, greatly
favor the re-election of Josepn M.
Dixon (rep.) over A. C. Gormley (dem.)
Chairman Mantle of the republican
committee claims Dixon's election by
5,000, but the democratic leaders con
test this statement and say Gormley
will yet win, but by a small majority.
The result on the legislature' is in
doubt. Great interest is taken in this
contest, as that body will elect a succes
sor to Senator Pans Gibson (dem.)
Chairman Frank of the democratic
committee claims the election of the en
tire legislative ticket in Silver Bow
county, with its representation equal
ing nearly one-fourth of the entire body.
This claim, however, is disputed by both
the republicans and Hemze leaders.
The republicans assert that even should
Butte send a solid delegation, they will
be able to overcome this lead, as Helena
and Great Falls will probably elect a
majority of republicans as well as the
eastern and northern counties.
In the event of the "republicans con
trolling the legislature, Thomas H. Car
ter will be elected, his claim to leader
ship not being seriously disputed in any
quarter. Should the democrats win,
another fight such as has made Montana
famous is promised, in that W. G. Con
rad, F. A. Heinze and Senator Gibson
are avowed candidates.
Dixon's Re-election Conceded.
The re-election of Congressman Dixon
is virtually conceded by tho democrats.
His probable plurality will be 4,500.
Outside of Governor Toole the probabil
ities are that all the state officers will
be republican. In Helena the republi
cans and democrats divide the honors
on the county ticket.

Des Moines, Iowa, Nov. 9.President
Eoosevelt has carried Iowa by 140,000
and all of the eleven congressmen are
republicans. In the second district,
with five precincts to hear from, A. E.
Dawson has a majority over Judge Mar

Wade carried Clinton county by

lead to 850.
Dawson carried Muscatine county by
811 votes and Scott countv, a democratic

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT WILL
NOT BE A CANDIDATE AGAIN
Washington, Nov. 9.President Roosevelt last night, after the election re-
turns clearly Indicated the result, Issued the following statement:
I am deeply sensible of the tionor done me by the American people
In thus expressing their confidence In what I have done and have tried
to do. I appreciate to the full the solemn responsibility this confidence
Imposes upon me and I shall do all that In my power lies not to forfeit
It. On the 4th of March next I shall have served three and one-half
years, and this three and one-half years constitutes my first term. The
wise custom, which limits the president to two terms, regards the sub-
stance and not the form. Under no circumstances will I be a candidate
for or accept another nomination.
New York, Nov. 9.The latest re
turns from New York state, with some
districts missing, indicate pluralities of
168,791 for Roosevelt and about 74,000
for Higgins. Eoosevelt has approxi
mately 206,000 outside of Greater New
York, while Parker's plurality in the
city is less than 38,000.
Denver, Nov. 9.Impartial estimates
based on returns up to 9 o'clock today
indicate that Roosevelt's plurality in
Colorado will be about 20,000 and that
Alva Adams, democrat, will have at
least 5,000 plurality over James H.
Peabody, republican, for governor. Re
turns of the congressional vote indicate
the election of John T. Shafroth, demo
crat, as congressman-at-large and Rob
ert W. Bonynge, republican, in the first
district and Herschel M. Hogg, republi
can, in the second district.
Baltimore, Nov. 9.Tho the official
returns are not all in, there is now no
doubt that Maryland has gone republi
can by a plurality of about 1,500 with
three and probably four of the republi
can congressional candidates elected.
This result is almost as great a surprise
to the republicans as to the democrats,
as the state had been practically con
ceded to the demociats by all except a
few sanguine leaders, among whom was
State Chairman Hanna, who was persist
ent in the view that Roosevelt would
carry the state. It is admitted that
thousands of democrats, belonging to
what was called the silent vote,'' cast
their ballots for Roosevelt and Fair
banks. Congressman Frank C. Wach

trict, by a majority of over 2,100, also
received a large number of democratic
The expectation that the illiterate col
ored voters would have difficulty in vot
ing without spoiling their ballots was
not realized. The result showed that
these voters had been so instructed that
they made few mistakes in marking
their ballots. At noon today, Collector
William C. Stone, the republican leader
of the state, publicly announced that
the plurality for Roosevelt Would not be
less than 1,700.
Murray Vandiver, democratic state
chairman, who had predicted a sweep
ing victory and 15,000 majority for
Parker ana Davis, said today that he is
utterly at a loss to explain the republi
can landslide, except on the theory of
the president's personal popularity.
Dispatches from the counties, state
that some instances as at Cumber
land, democrats openly cut their ticket'
and joined the republicans in celebrat
ing the election of Roosevelt.
Wilmington, Del Nov. 9.The re
publicans have made a clean sweep in
this state. Roosevelt's plurality will
be over 4,000, while Lea, the republi
can compromise candidate for governor,
will have a plurality of nearly 3,500.
The republicans nave elected their
congressman and will have a majority
on joint ballot in the legislature of 16.
This will probably mean the election
