Both Parties Claim the
Election of Gover
nor. Indications Are That Peabody Has
Carried State by Same Plural
ity as Roosevolt.
DENVER, Colo., Nov. 9. Roosevelt's
plurality In Colorado has been Increased
over tho former estimates by later re
turns and may run above 15.000. Re
publicans and Democrats claim the
election of governor and congressman-at-large
and the Republicans threaten
to contest the state election on the
ground of alleged frauds In Denver. On
the face of nearly complete returns
Adams has carried Denver county by
4500 plurality and he appears to have a
safe lead over Peabody without this
What the Times Claims.
Accoi'dlng to the returns in the Times
Adams's plurality in the state Is a little
over 10,000. The Times concedes that
the result Is In doubt as to the other
state officers but claim the legislature
to be Democratic In both branches.
Post Holds Out for Peabody.
The Post says: "Late returns this
afternoon indicate clearly that the Re
publican ticket in Colorado, national,
state and county, has been elected by
pluralities muging uuiii uuv iu ia,wv.
A conservative estimate places Gover
nor Pcabody's plurality at 5000. He
will carry Denver by from 1500 to 2000."
Democratic Chairman Smith made
i the statement this "eTe'rilngr "Alva Ad
ams Is elected by from 10,000 to 15,000.
All the state ticket goes in with him
according to our best Information."
Peabody Is Elected, Says Fairley.
"Peabody will bo elected by some
where between 5000 and 10,000.
The State ticket will run be
tween 10,000 and 15,000. Roose
velt will run even higher than that.
The congressmen are elected by plural
ities above 10,000. I expect to bring
Peabody to Denver with a plurality
ranging from 7000 to 10,000, This is
large enough to offset any frauds the
Democrats might attempt in Denver.
We will control tho legislature by good
Chairman Smith. Stands Pat
Chairman Smith of tho Democratic State
committee tonight stands pat on his claim
that Adams, Democnitlo nominee for Gov
ernor, bos been elected by a plurality of
10,000. He also is of the opinion that tho
rest of the Stato ticket ha3 been success
ful, but has nothing like complete re
turns on which to baao an estimate of the
vole. Ho concedes, however, that Maupln,
Democratic candidate for Congress from
tho Second district, has been defeated by
Hogg, tho present Republican candidate,
but says tho result ns to Congrcssmnn-at-largc
Is still uncertain.
Adams's Plurality in Denver.
Returns from all of tho 201 precincts In
thla city, with the exception of about two
dozen, give Adams a plurality of nearly
70CO. Tho precincts yet to bo heard from
aro admittedly Republican, and It Is gen
erally thought thnt when they report
Adams's plurality will bo reduced to about
4000 In Denver.
Chairman Fnlrloy of the Republican
State committee had nothing to odd to tho
slatoment already made by hhn.

Interest in Two States. , j '; I
Tonight tho Interest centers In Mis- I
sourl and Maryland. Late returns In-
dicate that the former State is in the r , IH
Republican column so far as Preslden- .
tlal electors are concerned, but that .1 j IH
Joseph W. Folk, the Democratic can- ' ! IH
dldate, has been elected Governor. In L' jH
Maryland the Presidential vote will ' i
probably be cast for Roosevelt. Lato !',,
returns tonight Indicate that Thomas j1 IH
A. Smith has been elected to Congress '. IH
by the Democrats In tho First district, '
Congressman Jackson of this district j '
tonight, however, puts forward the ,
claim that trick ballots wero used and I,
eays he will contest tho election. ' i
Question of Pluralities. '
Tn tho other States It is simply a
question of pluralities "The solid 'I JH
South" was broken by tho defection of i i
Missouri. The figures tonight show
but twelvo States with 133 votes for s! '
Judge Parker. President Roosovclt j;
carried nil tho Northern States swept 1
thorn. In fact and tonight ho had S43 1
electoral votes. ( IH
Pennsylvania Banner State.
The banner State Is Pennsylvania- j!1'
Twenty-four hours after the polls closed ' '
the returns from this State indicated ' ('
that Roosevelt's plurality would reach
4SG.O0O. Next came Illinois, where the ' '
President polled approximately 225,000 i':
more votes than did Parker. Ohio gave
Roosevelt 200,000 and New York 174,000. j i
The New York City returns are still r . 1
incomplete, but tho amazement over '
tho result has not subsided. Judge f IH
Parker carried Greater New York by I ', IH
nearly 41,000 votes. j ,
Many Scratched Tickets. ;r;'
In general, the situation Is chiefly In- ' JH
tcrestlng tonight because of tho faot I1 ;
that the tickets In many of tho States J IH
wero cut. President Roosevelt Tan ! H
ahead of his ticket In many localities. j ) IH
In Massachusetts he had a plurality of , H
86,000, while the Republican candidate ' ' IH
for Governor was defeated by 35,000. H
In that State the Legislature is Repub
lican and the entire Republican ticket
with tho exception of Governor, wns H
elected. In Missouri the circumstances H
are similar. J
