Minnesota, poing far, beyond McKin

On the face of the, returns so far re

will have a plurality of more than 100,

than that received by Bryan 'four; years
ago and Roosevelt was espe"cially
strong in counties which of "old were
Populist strongholds. In Kittson Coun
ty, for example, Roosevelt polled 1500
votes as against 100 for Parker, where
as McKinley carried the county by
only 300. In? St. Paul and Ramsay
counties Roosevelt will have ; close i to

Johnson's- election was claimed by a
plurality of 20,000 to 22,000. . Chairman

mittee claims the election of Dunn, the
Republican candidate,, but admitted
that the result would be close.
The Republicans, elect the remainder
The Democrats elected, .besides their
candidate for Governor, at least three
Congressmen. Roosevelt's majority is
estimated at 82,000.

In the Fifth District, composed of
Louisville and Jefferson County, the
Democratic plurality of 3696 In 1900 was
cut down by fully 2000 votes. »
. Jn the Third District also the Demo
cratic plurality was reduced. The
complete returns from the strongly Re
publican districts are not expected; for
forty-eight hours, but the reduction of
the normal Republican plurality there
as a result of a factional fight over the
Republican Congressional nomination
will partially offset the Republican
gains in the Third and Fifth.
The result of the figltf* leaves the

• LOUISVILLE. Ky., Nov. 9.— With
one-third of the precincts reported at
1 o'clock the vote indicates a plurality
for Parker of from 12.000 to 14,000. The
figures of the Democratic and Repub
lican managers show little variance
from this result. .
Parker Wins the State by
12,000 to 14/,000.
DENVER. Colo., Nov. 8.— Estimates
at midnight from scattering and in
complete returns indicate a plurality
of more than 10,000 for Roosevelt in
Colorado. The result as to Congress
men and State officers is In- doubt,
owing to the large number of scratched
ballots that have not been counted.
In 130 . precincts outside of .Denver
Peabody received 10,069 votes and
ACams 10,035 with 9168 scratched bal
lots uncounted. The scratched ballots
in the entire State are estimated at
more than 40,000. Scratched ballots in
Governor Peabody Appears
to Be Defeated.
DENVER, Nov. 9, 1:30 a. m.— Of 677
scratched ballots in seven Denver pre
cincts' 477 were for Adams. The Demo
crats estimate the number of scratched
ballots In the entire State at 55,000 and
claim that Adams will get two-thirds
of these insuring his election. The
Republicans claim Governor Peabody'a
re-election by 5000.
Republican Chairman Fairley said:
"Colorado has gone Republican, elect
ing by a safe majority the electors,
Congressmen and the entire State
ticket." •¦¦;.;'¦. ¦.-••-.;.;
Denver which have been counted run
in favor of Adams In the ratio of about
two to one. On this basis the Demo
crats claim that Adams Is elected Gov
ernor by 7000 to 8000 plurality, with the
probability that the remainder of the
Democratic Stale ticket is also elected.
Democratic Chairman Smith will not
concede that Roosevelt has carried the
State and said:- "Adams' plurality will
not be less than 15,000."
Judge Parker threw open his doors
and everybody was made welcome.
After the first disappointment there
was laughing and Joking among the
guests. They cheered the returns
from Texas at 10 o'clock and Judge
Parker's voice was heard above the
others ' as he laughingly observed,
'There's hope yet" Judge Parker
refused to make any comment upon
the result of the election.
Over the telephone shortly after 10
o'clock Judge Parker received. -word
that President Roosevelt had sent a
reply to his message. The President's
telegram arrived later. ;"- PJ-f.-'
There was no feeling ; of gloom or
depression prevailing at Rosemount
to-night as the bulletins continued to
arrive. Many neighbors of Judge
Parker drove over to call on him after
dinner and at least, forty villagers
went up the hill to hear the election
the table and went to his study.
From national headquarters word
reached him at half past S o'clock
conceding 1 the election of President
Roosevelt. Judge Parker immediate
ly dictated a message of congratula
tion to the. President. ..~~~.. :.*.-•

So the Republican chorus swell
ed all through New York State.
In the farm houses and in the city
homes it was the same story. ..The
farmers did not want a change
any more than did the-working
men in the cities of the State. The
Democratic , vote in New York
City literally went to pieces. What
became of the 125,000 plurality
for Parker and Herrick in New
York County that leader Murphy
qf Tammany was talking of?
What became of the 30,000 in
Kings County that McCarren
promised ? The Irish vote ap
pears very largely to have swung
to the support of the President
and some of it to the support of
the Republican State ticket.
The returns from New Jersey
appear to show an equally em-
phatic Republican victory. Mc-
Kinley carried the State in 1900
by about 57,000. Estimates, sub
ject to revision, are that Roose
velt will carry- it by between
50,000 and 60,000. Stokes, the
Republican nominee for Gov-,
ernor, is elected.

PARKER JOKES ON
HEARING OF DEFEAT
At 3 a. m. the latsst figures on Gov
ernor in Greater New York give Hlg
g-ins 257,051 and Herrick 331,131, or a
plurality for Herrick of 74.083, with
fifty-seven precincts still to be heard
from. • ¦ >'.".t:^:.-
There was a great surprise in the
proportions of the vote for Higgins (R.)
for Governor, he running far ahead of
the Odell vote in the counties and win
ning by about 85,000. Herrick did not
c&rry Albany, his home county, nor did
Parker carry Ulster, in which he lives.
The result of the election was. cele
brated in New York in the demonstrat
ive* manner characteristic of this city.
The Democrats are in a hopeless mi

NEW YORK. Nov. 9. — At 3 a. m.
1T07 out of 1550 precincts in . New
York City reported a plurality of 35.
€18 for Parker, whose total vote, with
fc-rty-three precincts missing in the
greater city, was 314. 881. while that
for Roosevelt was 279,263. The, re
maining precincts were the outlying
sections and these figures are prac
The Parker plurality in the city was
3£,000 less than that given Herrick
<D.) for Governor.
NEW YORK, Nov. 8.— Theodore
Roosevelt's plurality in this, his native
State, i? second only to McKinley's
26is.0oO in 1S96. It exceeds McKinley's
in J900 by about 41.500. The late returns
show that there were cast for Roose
velt in New York State about 185,000
votes more than for Parker. Not only
•was his vote heavy in the country dis
tricts, where the Republican strong
holds are, but in greater New York,
traditionally Democratic, he ran much
closer to Judge Parker than had been
expected even by his own campaign
managers. .- -¦
It had been rumored that he would
come down to the Bronx with better
than 140,000 plurality, but the figures
to-night showed that this forecast
would be exceeded by approximately
85,000. In the city Parker's supporters
had expressed hopes that their candi
date would have from 140,000 to 160,000
more than Roosevelt, but In this they
were disappointed by more than 100,000-
So overwhelming was the Republican
vote that the result was known posi
tively early in the evening. The ear
liest counties to report made it clear
tliat the Parker vote everywhere fell
below Bryan's in practically all the up-
State districts. In Greater New York
Parker's plurality was from 12,000 " to
14,000 larger than Bryan's, but^ in the
Stale, according to toe late reports, his
tctal vote fell 16,000 short of Bryan's.
The small plurality for Parker in
New York City caused great astonish
ment, the lowest preliminary' ante-elec
tion estimates having given figures
that he would go to the Bronx with
100.000 plurality. When the reports
came in showing that he would lead
Roosevelt by only 40,000 they were re
ceived with amazement.

The most Important personal feature
of the evening was the reception of
Judge Parker's telegram of congratula

their votes had approved President

while he was still in his library and

wrote this reply: "I thank you for
Apparently the President did not
consider that under the circumstances,
he was required to say more than this.
It is believed here that Roosevelt
would have been pleased to have ten
dered to Judge Parker an Important
judicial position within the gift of the
President, had ; not the personal rela
tions become somewhat strained at the
end of the campaign.
Later on he appeared at the window
of the Cabinet-room in response to
hearty cheers from the clubs outside
and spoke a fetf words to them.

manner and from all that he said to

him to-night that he was greatly

he himself played. In the last stage of

reply to Judge Parker in regard to the

The President remained, in the pri

until nearly 10 o'clock and then went
over to the executive office, where he
received the Washington newspaper
correspondents. A delegation of the
Republicans of the District of Colum

Old Boys' Club serenaded him in front
of the executive, office. They ap
peared in uniform, bearing old-fash

After receiving the congratulations
of. the newspaper correspondents the
President. invited them to his private
office, where he made this statement
"I am deeply sensible of the honor
done me by the American people in
thus expressing their confidence in
what I have done and have tried to do.
I appreciate to the full the solemn
responsibility this i confidence imposes

power lies not to forfeit it. On March
