plurality, and claims that Adams (Donv)
will havo 000 plurality over Peabody .for
Governor Only a few scattering roturns
huvo been received up to 0 p. m.
When tho polls closed nt 7 o'clock both
sides to tho most spirited campaign over
conducted In Colorado wero still claiming
a vlotory.' Milton Smith, chairman of
the Democratic State committee, said that
Adams, Democratic candidate for Gov
ernor, would Kiirely have S000 majority
over Peabody (Rep.) outside of Denver,
and that this would be doubled by tho
vote of this city. He also said that ho
did n6t expect Pnrkcr to run more than
15.000 votes behind Adams.
D B. FaJrley, Republican chairman,
said that Rooaovolt would certainly carry
tho State and that Gov. Peabody was
"safe, ' though his vote would fall short
of Rooscvolt's. Scratching has been so
general that tho returns will be lato.
Estimates at mldnlcht from scattering
and Incomplete returns Indlcato a plur
ality of over 10,000 for Roosevolt In Colo
rado. The result as to Congressmen nnd
Stnto officers Is In doubt owing to tho
largo number of scratched ballots that
havo not bien counted. In ISO precincts

votes nnd Adams 10.035, with 9.1CC
Scratched ballots uncounted. Tho
scratchod ballots In tho entlro Stato nre
.'8tlmated at over 40,000. Scrntchcd bal
lots In Denver which have beon counted
run In favor of Adams In the ratio of
about two to one. On this hasls the Dem
ocrats claJm that Adams Is olocted Gov
ernor by 7000 to W0 plurality with a j
probability that the remainder of the
Democratic Stato ticket Is also elected.
Democratic Chairman Smith will not con-cc-do
that Roosevelt has carried the State
and .ald Adams's plurality will bo not
less than 15.000.
Republican Chairman Falrloy said:
"Colorado has gone Republican, electing
by a safo majority the electors. Congress
