placing that state in. the Democratic
list and the state Republican com
mittee conceded Wyoming to the op
position. Western Democratic headquarters
were enthusiastic over the showing
of President Wilson in Minnesota and
California.
Returns from Minnesota cities
gave Wilson a comfortable lead. This
was expected by political statisti
cians. But the surprise came with
first returns from the rural districts,
which showed the president keeping
step with Hughes, and in some in
stances gaining over the Republican
candidate.
In California the Los Angeles dis
trict gave Hughes a lead estimated
at 50,000, but Wilson overcame this
with the ai dof San Francisco, and
with three-fifths of the state tabu
lated the president had a lead of bet
ter than 7,000.
Claims of Republicans that these
two big states would go to Hughes
were ridiculed at Democratic head
quarters. The manner in which Wil
osn had overcome the Los Angeles
vote was the basis for the Demo
cratic assertion that he would carry
the coast state.
St Paul, Minn., Nov. 8. With 691
precincts out of 3,024 Wilson is lead
ing by 8,033, the totals being Wilson
42,172, Hughes 34,139. On the last
eleven precincts Wilson has gained
815 net. These were rural precints.
Topeka, Kan., Nov. 8. Kansas
has given Woodrow Wilson 10,000
to 15,000 plurality over Hughes, pos
sibly more. It has chosen four Dem
ocratic and four Repdblican con
gressmen, gave aRepublican gover
nor the largest plurality any candi
date has ever received, elected a Re
publican legislature and then picked
Democratic and Republican local of
ficials indiscriminately.
New York. Chairman Morganthau
of the Democratic finance committee
announced that the Democrats had
carried West Virginia by 10,000.
New York. Frank B. Kellogg, Re
publican stale chairman of Minne
sota, wired Republican headquarters
that Hughes will carry that state by
6,000.
New York. Republican National
Headquarters formally claimed Cali
fornia and Minnesota for Hughes.
San Francisco. The San Francis
co Daily News claims California for
Wilson by from 5,000 to 10,000.
St Paul, Minn. Minnesota, with
one-fifth vote in' at nOon today
showed Wilson leading by 7,218. It
is impossible to forecast results, but
Wilson has made gains in purely
rural precincts this morning. The
cities and towns are in. The farmer
vote will decide.
San Francisco. President Wilson
leaped into the lead in tne California
presidential race when returns from
3,198 precincts out of 5,870 in Cali
fornia gave him a total vote of 239,
919 against 232,376 for Charles
E. Hughes.
, Los Angeles. Partial and com
plete returns from 1,092 precincts in
Southern California counties give
Hughes 78,043; WJlson 65,751.
Concord, N. H. With only 27 pre
cincts to be heard from, the Dem
ocratic state committee admitted
that Hughes was leading the state
by about 300 or 400, votes. It was
stated that a recount will be demand
ed and that in accordance with in
structions from Chairman McCor
mick the ballot boxes are being
closely guarded.
As goes the presidential election,
so apparently will go control of the
national house of representatives
but mighty slim control, either way.
There was a time during the shifting
tides of the night when it appeared
likely that two or three Socialists'
might have the deciding voice there.
