Wilson and Marshall Sweep the
Country, Estimated They Car
ried Thirty Six States
Entire State Democratic Ticket Elected and
Four Republicans Saved in the County
Newby Receives Handsome Majority and Dr.
Fess is Elected to Congress.
Roosevelt and Johnson Apparently in Second Place.
Woodrow Wilson has been elected
President of the United States, the
Democrats being successful for the
first time in twenty years.
While the returns received at the
time of going to press are necessarily
meager on account of the large ballot,
and much scratching it Is estimated
that Roosevelt has run second In both
popular and electoral vote and Pres-
ldent Taft third.
The landslide carried most of the
Democratic county ticket through to
victory. The Republicans however
elected G. G. O. Pence, state repre-
sentatlve, W. A. Teter, auditor, John
S. Farls, and B. O. Pratt, surveyor.
Mr. Farls headed the county ticket,
leading It in every precinct that has a
Democrat majority and carrying rock
ribbed Salem by twenty six votes.
Ohio was carried by Wilson and
Cox by over 100,000 and the entire
Democratic state ticket elected.
J. B. Worley was elected probate
Judge, defeating Frank R. Ambrose
by about 500. Judge Newby carried
Highland county by what Is thought
to be the largest majority ever re-
ceived by any candidate In this
county, his majority being estimated
at at least 1700and by many as high
as 2000. He has without a doubt
been reelected Common Pleas Judge
in this district although but little
definite news has been received from
the other counties in the district.
Sulzer, Democrat, was elected gov
ernor of New York, Hedges, Republi
can, running second and Struss, Pro
gressive, third. In Indiana the early
returns indicate the election of Ral
ston, Democrat, with Beveridge a close
second. In Illinois the race between
Deneen, Republican and Funk, Pro.
gresslve, is very close and the result
Is In doubt.
The Sixth District sends Dr. S. D.
Fess to Congress, defeating D. K.
Hempstead by about 300. Dr. Fess
made a clean, agressive campaign and
deserved re-election as he is a man of
ability and wide learning. His record
as vice-president of the Constitutional
Convention added much to his
While Gov. Wilson has received the
large electoral vote of 421, carrying 36
states and 2 still In doubt, he will not
have a majority of the popular vote.
Col. Roosevelt carried five states, re
ceiving an electoral vote of 87 and
President Taft four states with an
electoral vote of 16.
The states it was thought each can
didate had carried Wednesday morn
ing and their elect6ral vote follows:
