Republican Victory !n
CARRIED ALL DOUBTFUL STATES!
Sweeping Majorities Given For Roose

publican by a Close Vote, and the
Tennessee Republican Chairman
Even Enters a Claim to That State

West Virgginia, Though the Demo
cratic State Ticket May Be Elected.
New York, Special.-The Republican
national ticket has been elected by, a
vote in the electoral college that will
exceed, that of 232 given McKinley in
1900. The result of today's balloting
was astounding even to the most san
. guine of the Republicaa managers.
. Confident ?.s they were of success, they
were not prepared for tho astonishing
figures which followed the closing of
the polls, bringing into the Republican
column not only all of those states
they had claimed as safe for their can
didates, but with the possible excep
tion of Maryland, every state classed
Democratic successes are confined to
the solid south, in which Kentucky is
included, and Mr. Parker has not car
ried a single state which did net give j
its vote to Mr. Bryan four years ago. j
Official returns indicate that he lost
some of those which the Nebraska can
didate held for his party.
Now York, Special.-From returns
at hand the electoral vote stands as

WEST VIRGINIA DOUBTFUL.
Parkerville, W. Va., Special.
Without a precinct in the State count
ed, enough has been learned to indi
cate that thc Democratic ticket has
. made very heavy gains.
One precinct-here, normally Demo
cratic by 10, hat 118 straight Demo
cratic tickets, 81 straight Republican
tickets, and 146 scratched tickets,
with Democratic candidates voted for.
Clarkesburg, W. Va., Special.-Re
turns coming in slowly indicate scatch
ej ticket for governor. Harrison coun
ty and Clarksburg will give Roose
velt 1,000 majority. The same gave
McKinley 1,200. ?
MARYLAND IN DOUBT.
Baltimore, Special.-Returns from
the city and State are not complete,
but it is apparent from the official j
reports so far received that the vote j
in Maryland is very close, and that j,
the actual result may not bc definite-1
ly known, owing to thc slowness of j
returns from remote districts in East-1
ern Shore and southern counties. In !
Baltimore the indications are that they
may not'be a difference of 100 votes.
Incomplete returns from the counties
show unexpected Republican gains,
particularly in. the western counties.

strikers an opportunity to go to work
under a 12% per cent. cut. At Monday's
conference, the executive committee of
the Manufacturers' Association waa in
formed by a commlmttee representing
the Textile Council that the latter body

that five disinterested persons bc ap
pointed to investigate thc statement of
the mill owners that they are still un
able to pay the rate of wages which
prevailed before the 12% per cent, re
duction on July 25th. The representa
tives of the operatives stated, however,
that they would favor such an investi
gation provided the manufacturers
would take down thc reduction notices
and open the gates, pending the result
OL the inquiry. The manufacturers re
fused to consider this proposition.

Latest Returns Indicate That Roos*

OOO, Far In Excess of McKinley's" in |
New York, Special.-With the elec
tion returns still incomplete.the plural
ity of President Roosevelt in the na
tion, according to all indications, will
exceed 1;500.000, the ?rcate?t plurality
?v?r given an American ' candidate.
The nearest approach to this vote
was in 1S9C, when McKinley received
a plurality approximately 850,000
The interest centers in Missouri and
Maryland. Late returns indicate that
the former state is in the Republican
column so fal- as preslde?ti?l electors
are concerned; but that Joseph Folk,
the Democratic candidate, has been
elected governor. Maryland's presi
dential vote will be cast for President
Roosevelt. Late returns tonight indi
cate that Thomas A. Smith, Demo
crat, has been elected to congress in
the first district by 450 plurality. Con
gressman Jackson, of this district, to
night, however puts forward a claim
of trick ballots ??d ?ra?d a?il says
he will contest the election.
tn the other states it is simply a
question of pluralities;
Tile solid south was broken by the
probable defection of Missouri-this
section of the country usually having
13 states in the Democratic column.
The figures tonight show but 12 states,
with 133-votes, for Judge Parker.
President Roosevelt carried all the
northern states-swept them, in fact
and tonight he had 343 electoral votes.
The baiiner state is Pennsylvania.
Twenty-four hours after the polls
closed the returns from this stale in
dicated that Roosevelt's plurality
would reach 480,000. Next came Illi
nois, where the president polled ap
proximately 225,000 more votes than
Judge Parker. Ohio gave Roosevelt
200,000 alli) New York 174.000.
The New York city returns are still
incomplete, but the amazement ovov
the result has not subsided. Judge
Parker carried Greater New York by
Dnly 41,000 votes.
In general, the situation is chiefly
Interesting b?catis? of the fact that
tho tickets in the many states were i
cut. President' Roosevelt ran ahead
of his ticket In many localities, not- ?
ably in Massachusetts, where he se
cured a plurality of 86.000 votes, while
the Republican candidate for governor
was defeated by 35,000. In that state
the legislature Is Republican and the
entire Republican ticket, with the ex- *
ceptiOil Ot governor, was elected. In 1
Missouri, circumstances are similar. ? \
In . Nebraska, the definite announce- :
aient that the legislature is Republi- ;
^an, disposes of tho statement that
William J. Bryan had aspirations for j
