60.000 votes. Roosevelt Is slowly gain- j
ing on Taft, and If this ooistinuea as It i
did through the figures received yes- |

will run second In Virginia,
In many 'of the counties there was j
absolutely no interest taken in the

opponent, the candidacy of Walter
Graham, on the Progressive ticket, hav. j

Republican strength In that district.
General Ayers. in a statement Issued
yeaterday, char gas that che pre-elec?
tion agreement signed on behalf of
Slemp and himself, in the movement to
secure clean elections, not to speod
money or vse liquor in the effort to
illegally Influence voters, was violated
by the Republicans, and that money
and whiskey were used on election day
0:1 behalf of Mr. Slemp.
He leaves the matter of sontesting
the election la the hands of his party
committee by whose judgment be is;
' disposed to be guided, but he asserts
that his duty to the movement for hon?
est elections lies before him, and that
he will continue the fight. He calls
lipon every voter who Is interested to'
g.ve bis moral support to every man
who seeks to piinifh violators of thai

polled by Governor Wilson
ranged through many millions \
during the day. It was found!
impossible to compute with any;
certainty the popular vote of an_
of the presidential candidates,
and it will be a number of days
until the counting of the three
cornered contest in the different
States is conclude' and an accu?
rate tabulation of the popui
vote made possible.
Assertions were made to-day
from several quarters, where an
effort had been made to gather
preliminary popular vote figures,
that Governor Wilson had not
polled a majority of the votes
cast throughout the country.
Estimates ranged from a'small
majority of all votes to figures nearly
1.090,000 below a majority. The pop?

The Day** Snrnrl?
There were many surprises through?
out the day and night. Early In- the
day New Hampshire, first credited to
Taft, went definitely Into the Wilson
column with a majority of about 1,500
for the Democratic "an^'-drf* Returns
from Id ah), which came in scattering
from early In the day. favored Wilson
so strongly as to create the belief that
it WTuld give him It* electoral vote, but
late return* made It tbe third State to
go certainly for President Taft. j
The RDosevelt forces, watching the
returns hourly as they came from Illi?
nois, suffered a scar* as the down
State Democratic district* reduced Col?
onel Roosevelt'* plurality from Cook
County until It promised to disappear.
Late in tbe day a complete rep irt from
Cook County again swelled the Roose?

ta Ro-jeevelt by all Interests on the

ally sUpped back, during the day until
it bad become a question to-night
whether Wilson or Roo**velt would
control its .ten votes.

i statement I overcome a strong inclina?

I may be to assume other unpleasant
and disagreeable tasks, my duty to the
movement for purs, honest and clean
elections lies before me. and I n->w call
upon all msn throughout tbe district

their moral support to every man*
everywhere who seeks f> punish thoso
who have violated tbe law.
"I have given little thought to the
question whether or not I shall eon
test the election. TMs is largely a
matter for the party committees to de?
cide upon, and I shall be disposed to
be governed by the actions of thess
committees when taken. In the mean?
time I understand steps are being
taken looking to a thorough tnvestlgs- ?

secure clean elections. When all that

done, then I shall feel that my whole
