THAT California had Joined the
ranks of the Wilson states was
indicated on the fact of the par
tial and incomplete returns
available at 12 o'clock.
With several counties unreported
and with less than half the vote
counted in any but the smaller coun
ties the available returns indicated
that Wilson had carried the state by a
plurality of 5,000 to 7,000.
The early returns indicated that
northern California had gone for Wil
son almost without a break in the
line of counties down to Alameda,
At 9 o'clock Daniel A. Ryan, chair
man of the progressive party state
central committee, conceded San Fran
cisco to Wilson by 8,000, but refused
to concede the state to the democrats.
T. R. Lead in South Slight
The returns from Los Angeles, where
the progressives pinned their hopes of
victory, were disappointing to them.
The progressive party leaders in Los
V Angeles county issued a statement at 9
* oclock claiming- the county for Roose
velt by 25,000, but Independent press re
turns indicated that Roosevelt's lead in

ROOSEVELT VOTE IS VERY SMALL
Third Term Candidates Fail Dismally East

N§W YORK, Nov. s.—With
the election of Woodrow
Wilson to the presidency
and Thomas R. Marshall to the
vice presidency assured by the
earlier returns tonight, the re
ports up to midnight gave indica
tions that the electoral vote of
the democratic candidates would
pass the 300 mark. •
The size of the popular major
ity given the democratic national
ticket by the states outside of Il
linois which might give electoral
votes to either Taft or Roosevelt,
were matters of conjecture at
midnight.
Illinois for Roosevelt
It was certain, however, that
Illinois would give an overwhelm
ing majority to Roosevelt, while
the race in Pennsylvania was so
close as to bring all three candi
dates within the range of success.
Early returns gave Woodrow
Wilson and Governor Marshall
the "solid south" and the states
of Connecticut, Delaware, Ken
tucky, Maine, Maryland, Massa
chusetts, New York, West Vir
ginia, Indiana and Missouri. As
the night advanced and returns
from the west began to come in,
the earlier counts were confirmed
and Montana, New Jersey and
New Mexico were added to those
that seemed certain for the demo
cratic candidates, while scattering
returns from San Francisco and
Los Angeles made it probable
that California might join the
Wilson-Marshall column.
Rhode Island Doubtful
Rhode Island also became a
doubtful state on the returns near
midnight, and, based on the later
votes reported, it seemed not
wholly improbable that its five
electoral votes would go to Wil
son. The early returns gave an
apparent victory to Taft in New
Hampshire and Vermont, but the
Taft plurality dwindled as mid
night approached to a very few
hundred votes in each state and
seemed likely to be wiped out
entirely.
The vote in Utah, as reflected
in the dispatches up to midnight,
gave indications that that state
might be carried for Taft. The
vote in Pennsylvania was exceed
ingly close, the returns from
more than a thousand precincts,
embracing over 185,000 votes,

giving each of the three leading
presidential candidates more than
60,000 votes. President Taft's
lead in Philadelphia districts was
offset by the heavy vote polled by
Roosevelt and Wilson in other
parts of the state^
Many Surprises in Returns
Many surprises were shown in
the returns. The New York
state assembly seemed to be
overwhelmingly democratic. In
Illinois, indications were that
Judge Dunne, the democratic
candidate for governor, had won
notwithstanding the heavy Roose- !
velt victory. Former Speaker I
Cannon seemed to have been de
feated for re-election to congress
in Illinois.
In addition to Roosevelt's ap
parently certain victory in Illinois,

velt managers that lowa, Michi
gan and Kansas would fall into the
