Special Dl*patcti to The Call,

GREAT AMERICAN JURY RENDERS
DECISIVE VERDICT APPROVING
THE REPUBLICAN STEWARDSHIP
Special Dispatch to The Call.
NEW YORK, Nov. 8.^-Total
vote in the Electoral College, 476;
Roosevelt's vote in the Electoral
College, 325; Parker's vote in the
Electoral College, 151; Roose
velt's . majority, 1 74.
, New>York State Republican by
200,000. Higgins elected.
Massachusetts Republican by
70,000 and Douglas (Democrat)
The House of 3 Representatives
Republican by probably 62 ma-
And Maryland, Too!
Alone, Maryland's vote appears
to be in some doubt, the probabil
ity being that Roosevelt has car
ried the State with its eight votes.
Nevada is also somewhat in
doubt with her votes. Should both
of these States go for Parker
Roosevelt will still have 314
votes, the- number predicted by
Chairman Cortelyou at midnight.
It is more than a Republican
landslide— it is an avalanche.
Roosevelt has been elected by
probably a greater plurality of the
popular vote than was ever cast
for a. nominee for President and
by a larger majority of the Elec
toral College than was eyer given
before. The people have decided
in favor of the administration at
Washington and against any
change in existing policies. The
result is a. vote of confidence in
President Roosevelt of such an
emphatic character as to stagger
an ordinary man and overwhelm
him with the responsibility with
which; that* vote will invest him
during .the next four years.
New York's Vote.
New -York State will give
'Roosevelt a plurality, aggregating
200,000 ' and ' Higgins a very
large plurality. It has decided to
elect 'the entire Republican State
ticket,, a Republican Legislature
by increased majorities and to in
crease ¦ the Republican . representa
tion ; from this State in Congress.
The rural counties in this' State
stood out for Roosevelt and Hig-
I am deeply sensible of the honor done me by the American people in thus expressing their confidence in what I have done and tried to do. I appreciate to the full
thesolemn responsibility this confidence imposes upon me and I shall do all that in my power lies not to forfeit it. On the fourth day of March next I shall have served three and
one-tolf years, and this three and one-half years-constitutes my first term. The wise custom which limits the President to two terms regards the substance and not the form,
and under no circumstances wilMbe a candidate for or accept another nomination.
