Assertions were made to-day from

been made to gather preliminary pop

votes c.i.it throughout the country.
Kstlmatcn ranged from a small major
ity rf all votes to tlgures nearly 1,

votes, however, would In no way affect
his election, or his complete control of ,
the electoral college, should It show '
Ills total to be less than that of the I
combined voto for Roosevelt and Taft.
There were many surprises through
out tlu day and night. Early In the
clay New Hampshire. Mist credited to
T.ift. went definitely Into the Wilton
column, with a majority of .about 1,510
for tho democratic candidate. Returns
from Idcho, which ciune in scattering
from early in tho day, favori-d Wilson
so strongly as to create the belief that
It would give him its electoral vote,
but late returns marto It tho third State
to go certainly for President Taft.
The Roosevelt forces, watching the re
turns hourly on they camu from Illinois,
suffered a scire . as the down-State.
democratic districts reduced Colonel
Roosevelt's plurality from Cook county,

BOl'TII DAKOTA PROGRESSIVE.
Governor Wilson had tho better ot the
rituatlon In Iowa and Minnesota, where
the counting still was In progress to
night with but a narrow margin between
tho candidates; while South Dakota, still
I doubtful State, apparently had turned
toward Roosevelt on the later returns.
Whether tho democrats, In tho wide
spread victories of Tuesday, havn se
cured control also of tho United Suites
Senato Is a question that will not bo set

where countlugwns stlllgolng on to-night,

of practically an even 200,000 votes over
Taft, a Tnft lead of CO.OOO over Roosevelt,
and a similar alignment of parties In
tho gubernatorial vote Is tho result of
yesterday';) election In New York Statu
so far as confirmed by nearly completo
returns nt nine o'clock to-night.
The democratic presidential plirraltty Is
the largest New York State haa evor
given to that party, nnd It Is tho first
tlmo In tho history ot the Stato that tho
voters outside of tho metropolitan district
have irlven a democratic presidential
candidate a plurality.
Tho totals to-night are as follows:
For president: Wilson. fils.OW; Taft,
447,271; Roosevelt, TXIJM; Wilson's plural
For governor: Congressman William
Sulzer, (democrat), MJ.WVJ; Job 11. Hedges,
republican, Hl.f,2; Oscar S. Straus, pro
gressive, 0'd,eH3; Super's plurality. 205.121.

DEMOCRATS ORDATEST WIN.
On the general wave of democratic suc
cess the pnrtv appears to hove won the
most substantial control it ever had of
tho State Legislature and the Stato dele
gation in the national House of Rep
resentatives. Tho State Senate will, nr.
cording to latest llgures, have SI demo
cratic members nnd IS republican, and
the new assembly W! democrats, 3! re
publicans and four progressives. Of the
43 New York congressmen, 31 democrats
and 12 republicans appear to be elected.
The only republican congressman olcct
ed In tho four couutle-i of New York city
is, as was the case at (ho last election,
Wm. M. Colder of Rrooklyn. Former
City Comptroller Herman Metz Is ono
ef the prominent men among the new
line of local congressmen.
Tho presidential and gubernatorial vote
carried with it tho success of the rest
of tho democratic ticket, Martin H.
Glynn for lieutenant-governor, Mitchell
May for secretary of stato and tlie re
jection of Attorney-General Carmody,
Comptroller Sehmer, Treasurer Kennedy
and Stato Hnglneer Ilense,
Democratic Justices of tho supremo
court were also carried along on tho
wave, and It will probably develop to
lie equally true of tho Judges of tho
court of appeals, although no figures
on this voto aro available.
SECOND TIME IN IS TEARS.
Although the democrats will control
tho Legislature for tho second tlmo In
IS years, the result does not involve
the election of a democrat to l.'nlted
States Senator Ellhu Root's sent ns
the terms nf all those In tho legisla
ture elected yesterday will have ex
pired beforo tho end of Senator Root's
term In 1D13.
Republican leaders profess to find
considerable consolation In the Now
York State situation from the fact that
thoy have not lout their position as a
minority party, as thoy have in many
States through yesterday's vote. Tholi
maintaining of second place among
tho three parties carries with It here
control of nne-hnlf of tho election ma
chinery and second place on the bal
lots. Among many Interesting local votes up
State Is that of the socialist stronghold
In Schenectady county where the party
lost Its seat In the assembly to the demo
crats. Tlie socialists will now bo without
representation in the State Legislature.
A long light local to New York city is
ended by success of residents of the
Hronx district In breaking away from
New York county, and winning a county
governmnt of their own.
