Esopus, N. Y., Nov. 9. Judge Parker
concedes the election of President Roose
velt at 8:30 p.'m., when he received a bul
letin that the democratic national head
quarters had already admitted that every
doubtful state had been carried by the
republican national ticket. He appeared
to be not at all downcast by the result,
although It Is known that he greatly de
plored his overwhelming defeat In his
own state. He received the discouraging
news in his study, where he sat smoking
with two of his neighbors. The bulletin
from democratic headquarters concerning
Judge Parker's defeat was given to the
Judge by a press representative. When
nsked If he had any statement to make,
he pulled a telegraph blank, toward him
and wrote hastily for a moment. Then
"I am going to send this telegram to
"Rosemont, Esopus, N. Y., Nov. 8. The
President, Washington: The people by
their votes have emphatically approved
your administration. Alton B. Parker."
Washington, Nov. 9. President Roose
velt's reply to Judge Parker's telegram
was as follows:
"Alton B. Parker, Rosemont, N. Y.: I
thank you for your congratulations.
Theodore Roosevelt." .
Washington, Nov. 9. Chtlrman Cow
herd, of the democratic congressional
campaign committee, at 11 o'clock, said:
"We concede that the republican Roose.
velt landslide has carried the house of
representatives for the republicans by n
majority at least as large as that by
which they now hold control."

Chicago, Nov. 9. Secretary Elmer Do
ver, of the republican national committee,
Bays Roosevelt will havo 317 electoral
votes, which Is six more than the pre
election estimate. Ho said: "Owing to
differences In time and greater distances,
In the western states, the returns are
mager and Incomplte. They Indicate,
however, that the sentiment which car
ried tho east prevails In the west, and 1
think we Justify our claim that we will'
carry every doubtful state. I would re
vise my pre-election estimate by giving
President Roosevelt 317 votes instead of
nil. Tho result of the election Indicates
that the peoplo are satisfied with the
record of tho republican party for eight
years, and In addition to a party indorse
ment, the victory is n great personal
triumph for Theodore Roosevelt."
Vice Chairman New and Secretary Do
ver Issue tho following signed statement
regarding tho result:
"We havo now received reports from
every state In tha west and they con
firm the earlier prediction that the re
publicans have carried every western
state. Thera are no doubtful states. In
nearly every caso tho majorities are un
precedented. It Is a landslide which car
ries with It the stato tickets which were
endangered by local contests or stato Is
sues. Close congressional districts have
likewise- banontted, and while, we hayo
no .definite figures there will be a largo
net gain in tho membership of the lower
Dlapaethes up to IMS a. m. show that
the republicans have elected 202 congress
men and tlo democrats 138. Of the re
maining 46 districts 32'aro now repre
sented by republicans and 13 by demo
crats, Washington," Nov. 9. President Roose
velt Is assured of the co-operation of a
republican congVcss. The present repub
lican majority in that body is 34, and
thero need be no surprise If this figure
Is almost doubled, and It is reasonably
certain to reach a majority of at least
DO. In practically all districts the repub
licans have held their own, while in some
significant Instances tho democrats havo
lost, Probably tho most marked of these
Cftsga ars tho FourJJi and EJftb districts
of California (San FrnnCtsco) now repre
sented by Representatives Llverhash and
Wynne, democrats, which reports Indi
cate have been gained by tho republicans.
In the Twelfth Ohio district Taylor, rep.,
Is reported to have defeated Badger, tho
sitting democratic member, who wxs i
candidate for re-elootlon. Tho most
surprising of all the reports, however,
comes from tho Fifth and Fifteenth Mis
souri districts, both strongly democratic,
and tho former represented by Mr. Cow
Jierd, chairman of tho democratic con
gressional campaign committee. Tho re
publicans claim to have carried both dis
trict?. In tho light of theso reports ft
republican majority of 50 in tho house Is
considered a conservative estimate.
New York, Nov. 9. Theodore Rouse
velt's plurality In this, his native state, is
second only to McKlnlcy's In 1S95. It ex
ceeds MeKlnley's in 19U0 by about 41,500.
The late returns show that there wero
cast for him In New York atalo about
185,000 votes more than for Parker. Not
Dnly was tho voto heavy in tho country
districts, where tho Republican strong
holds are, but In the 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 estimated that he
would come down to the Bronx with bet
ter than lCO.OOO , plurality, but the figures
Monday night showed that this forecast
would be exceeded by approximately, 85,
000. In this city Parker's supporters had
expressed hopes that their candidate
would have from 140,000 to 160,000 more
than Rosevelt, but in this they were dis
appointed by more, than 100,000 votes. So
overwhelming was the republican vote
that the result was known positively
early In the evening. The earliest coun
ties to report made It clear that the Par
ker voto everywhere fell below Bryan's
In practically all tho up-state districts.
In the Greater New York Parker's plur
ality was from 12,000 to 14,000 larger than
Bryan's, but In the Btate, according to
the late reports his total vote fell 16,000
short of Bryan's.
The small plurality for Parker In New
York city caused great astonishment, tho
lowest preliminary ante-election estimates
having figured that he would go to the
Bronx with 100,000 or more. When the
reports came In showing that he would
lead Rosevelt by dnly 40,000, they were
received with amazement. The Parker
plurality In the city was 35,000 less tnan
wns given Herrlck, dem., for governor.
In Brooklyn the republican managers
thought Parker might lead Rosevelt, but
reports Irom all but 37 districts glvo
Roosevelt 424 plurality. His total voto
fell lff.000 short of Biyan's.
There was a great surprise In the pro
portions of the vote for Hlgglns, repub
lican, for governor, he running far ahead
of the Odell vote in the counties and
winning by about 85,000. His plurality
above the Bronx was probably IGO.000,
while Herrlck's In the Greater New York
aggregated about 75,000. Herrlck did not
carry Albany, his home county, nor did
Parker carry Ulster, In which he -lives.
Columbus, O., .Nov. p. Tho returns In
Ohio are compared with those on the
state ticket last November, when the re
publican plurality was 113,812, the largest
ever given an Ohio governor. The total
vote then was only 877,203. and It Is esti
mated at much over a million Tuesday.
Last year the republican plurality for
Gov. Herrlck of 113,000, the second high
est In the history of the state, was also
on a total vote much less than a million.
The pluralities of 1894 and 1903 were large
ly due to many democrats falling to vote
but the returns Indicate that they voted
The average republican plurality In
Ohio tho past ten years was 75,992. The
largest plurality Ohio ever gave any
president was 69,030 for McKInley four
years ago and the republican commltteo
estimate that the plurality for Roosevelt
and Fairbanks will be double tho-htghest
plurality over given McKInley either for
governor or president.
It is estimated at from 140,000 to 150,000.
The republicans claim a net gain of at
least one congressman, Taylor, In the
12th district. Chairman Garber, of the
democratic state committee, has no fig
urns to give out on the state or national
tickets In Ohio, but he also claims a net
pain of one democratic congressman.
The Ohio delegation In congress now
stands 17 republicans and four democrats.
Chairman Garber claims that the demo
crats havo elected Garber In tho Fourth,
Ansberry in the Fifth, Crissinger In tho
13th, Schneider In tho 15th and Hurst in
tho 17th district.
The republican state committee Tues
day night will not concede any of these
five districts except the Fourth, In which
Chairman Garber was re-elected to con
gress1 and Insist that if tho present rate
of republican gains continue, complete
returns Wednesday will show Garber the
only democratic congressman from Ohio.
Based on returns received to 1 o'clock
Tuesday night, If the present ratio of
gains is maintained for the unreported
precincts Ohio will give Roosevelt 200,000
plurality. Indications are that the re
publicans elect 20 of the 21 congressmen.
Indianapolis, Nov. 9. Indiana has been
carried by the republicans by from 45,000
to 55,000. The legislature will be repub
lican by nearly 50, probably more. All
the nine republican congressmen are re
elected by increased majorities, and the
republicans claim also the Second and
Twelfth districts, now represented by
-Representatives Miers and Robinson, both
democrats. They are In doubt. The leg
islature, which will meet In January, will
elect two United States senators, one to
succeed, Vice President-elect Charles W.
Fairbanks. Senator Beveridgo will be re
elected. Tho republicans have almost If not quite'
doubled the McKInley plurality In the
stato of 20,467 four years ago. In Marlon
county, which includes Indianapolis, 132
out of 2S0 precincts Indicate tho repub
licans have carried tho county by 11,000
which Is almost double the McKInley
plurality of four years ago. In scarcely
a county of the state have the renub-
llcans failed to make largo gains. Tho
Democratic State Chairman O'Brien early
concedes tho stato to the republicans by
over 30,000 and sent his congratulations to
Republican State Chairman Goodrich.
Democratic National Chairman Taggart
gave up the battle at 10 o'clock and wired
his congratulations to Republican Na
tional Chairman Cortelyou.
Vice President-elect Charles W. Fair
banks received the returns at his res
idence from private wires, which con
nected his home with the white house
He and President Roosevelt early ex
changed congratulations, and Senator
Fairbanks was given a reception at the
Columbia club. He did not make an ad-
rims. In nti Interview li nnld the result
'was a generous Indorsement 6f President
Roosevelt and ins administration,
National Chairman Taggart declined
to express an opinion as to causes. He
will leave for New York Wednesday
morning, and will go at once to demo
cratic national headquarters.
Chlcaco. Nov. 9. According to the re
turns received at midnight Illinois will
glvo to President Roosevelt tho largest
plurality ever given to any presidential
candidate. Ho has by the unofficial re-,
turns carried Chicago by 1)7.000 and tho '
county of Cook outsldo of tho city will
give him aixflit 9J1Q0. additional, .making
Bis plurality fn Cook county not far from
In previous presidential campaigns the
state outside of Cook county has Invaria
bly given a larger plurality for the re
Eubllcan candidate than tho county, and,
aslng the calculation upon this fact, the
republican state central commltteo claim
the possible plurality for President
Roosevelt will total 214,000, though some
of the committee claim 230,000. The dem
ocratic committee refuse to give any fig
ures. The greatest plurality ever given
In Illinois before was 143,000 for McKInley
The republican 'stato ticket has been
overwhelmingly ele'eted, Deneen for gov
ernor running about 15,000 behind tho na
tional ticket In Cook county. It was ex
pected by politicians of both parties that
Deneen would run ahead of tho national
ticket Iri about the same proportion that
he ran behind It.
Both branches of the legislature will be
overwhelmingly republican, but no sena
tor Is to be elected at tho coming ses
sion in January.
The republicans by carrying tho First,
Fifth and Eighth districts, heretofore
democratic, have increased their congres
sional delegation from 17 to 20.
The republicans have carried all the
offices In Cook county with the possible
exception of states attorney, tho vote
between Trude, dem., and Healy, rep.,
being very close.
Louisville, Ky., Nov. 9. The city of
Louisville and Jefferson county, with 16
precincts missing, glvo Parker, 22,927;
Roosevelt, 22,094. This indicates a net
democratic loss of 2,000 In the Fifth con
gressional district over 1902.
One hundred ond eighty-one precincts
In Kentucky out of 1,896 outside of Louis
ville and Jefferson county, give Parker
a plurality of 5,034, a gain over Bryan'i
plurality in 1900 of 1,026.
Nine counties of 119 In the state eive a
total plurality for Parker of 4,886. a gain
over Bryan's plurality In 1900 of 1.0C6.
Six hundred and seventy-two precinct!
out of a total of 1,896 In the state, give
Parker a plurality of 16,480. As the lltb
jlstrlct, a republican stronghold, is yet
to be heard from, Parker's probable plu
rality Is placed by those at both demo
rratlc and republican headquarters at be
tween 12,000 and 14,000. Bryan's plurality
n 1900 was 8,940.
Des Moines, Nov. 9. Returns from 310
precincts show a republican gain ever
1000 of 19 votes to a precinct. If this
gain be estimated throughout the 2.11S
precincts the plurality for Roosevelt will
be 139,456. The entire republican state
ticket Is elected by pluralities that will
fall but little below the head of the
ticket. The overwhelming republican
pluralities break all previous records In
Iowa. It Is said to be due In a large
measure to the Bryan democrats, who are
known to have voted for Roosevelt In
Returns are slowly coming In, but the
indications, on well distributed returns,
ire that Roosevelt's plurality will be 125.
XX) and the entire state ticket will have
ibout the same number. Republicans
tlect 10 congressmen, with the chance
that the Second district, which Is in
doubt, will go republican.
New Haven, Ct., Nov. 9. President
Roosevelt and the entire republican ticket
carried the state In Tuesday's election by
in overwhelming plurality which was
even larger than the most sanguine of
the party predicted. That the republic
ans would make a. sweep of the state
wan evident by the first of the returns
nd there seemed to be no doubt of the
result soon after the polls closed. It Is
estimated that President Roosevelt's plu
rality will reach almost the 25,000 mark,
which is several thousand ahead of Mc
Klnley's figures In 1900
The state ticket was not far behind and
from Henry Roberts, the candidate for
governor, down, there was a clean sweep.
Congressmen In each of the four districts
and the congressmen at large were all
re-elected and the legislature will remain
republican by a ratio estimated at about
ti to 1. which is a slight gain over the
"atlo Of two years ago.
Philadelphia, Nov. 9. The republicans
nave made an nlmost clean sweep In
Pennsylvania, carrying the state for
Roosevelt and Fairbanks by over 300.000
md electing 25 of the 26 state senators
nd 29. of the 32 congressmen. They havo
lso elected about 175 of the 204 members
jf the house of representatives. This
gives them control of both branches of
the legislature by a large majority, In
suring the election of Gov. Pennypacker's
appointee. Philander C. Knox, for United
States senator, to succeed the late M. S.
Quay. John P. Elkln, rep., Is elected
state supreme court Judge by a majority
almost as great as that cast for the re
publican national ticket.
Philadelphia, Nov. 9. Estimates from
the entire state give Roosevelt a plural
ity In Pennsylvania of between 390.000 and
100,000. In Philadelphia Roosevelt's plur
ality will exceed 175,000.
St. Louis, Nov. 9. The results of tho
election lii Missouri and In St. Louis are
In doubt. Both sides claim victory. The
democratic state committee claimed that
the stae had been carried by a majoilty
of 35,000 and St. Louis by 5.000; that lo
democratic congressmen had been elected
and tho legislature will be democratic
by a majority of 40, assuring the re-election
of United States Senator Cockrell
On the other hand, State Republican
Chairman Neldrlnghaus was equally a.
sertlve that St. Louis had gone repub
lican by 20,000 and the state majority
would reach 5,000. He felt confident that
final returns would show at least five re
publican congressmen elected, and felt
assured of a majority In the legislature
on joint ballot.
Baltimore, Nov. 9. Returns from the
rltv nnd stntn nrn not comDlete. but it Is
apparent from the official reports so far
receivea mat tne vote in .niaryianu i
very close and that the actual result may
not be definitely known Tuesday night,
owing to tho slowness of returns from
remote districts in eastern shore and
southern counties. In Baltimore tho in
dications are that there may not bo a
difference of 100 votes. Incomplete re
turns from the counties show unexpected
republican gains, particularly In the
The Sun, which supported the demo
cratic presidential nominees, concedes at
2:30 a. m. that Roosevelt carried the state
by about 1,000. In Baltimore city, with
one precinct missing, Parker has 474 plu
Detroit, Nov. 9. Michigan was tho
scene of a veritable republican landslide.
Roosevelt rtnd Fairbanks have .carried
the state by an unprecedented majority,
variously estimated at from 100,000 to 150,
000. Fred M. Warner and the republican
stato ticket are elected; at least 11 Of
the 12 congressmen from Michigan are re
publican and tho legislature Is overwhel
mingly republican, Insuring tho re-election
of United States Scnator,J. C. Bur
rows. Fred M. Warner, republican can
didate for governor, was generally con
ceded a majority of about 35.000. while
Roosevelt and Falrbank's majority was
sloipjy described generally .as pver ij&pra,
Newark, N. J Nov. 9. New Jersey
was carried by the republicans by a big
ger majority than even tho most san
guine of tho republican predictions claim
ed. Tho stato gave In the neighborhood
of 60,000 for Roosevelt, exceeding McKln
ley's majority four years ago bv 3,000 or
more. Despite a local Issue which was
used against him nnd which caused him
to be cut severely In some, parts of this
state, Edward S. Stokes, the republican
nominee for governor, defeated his dem
ocratic opponent, Charles C. Black, by
mora than 20.000. Eight republicans and
two democrats will constitute the state's
congress delegation, a gain of one for
Parkcrsburg, W. Vn., Nov. 9. The re
publican state cammlttee, basing Its
claims upon very meager returns and
upon estimates from party leaders In va
rious counties, claims that Roosevelt will
carry West Virginia by a plurality which
may reach 10,000, the plurality four years
ago being 21,000. The same committee
claims that the majority of Dawson, rep.,
for governor, will be half that of Roose
velt Only a few precincts havo been
counted In the state, and they are the
smallest ones,' so any forecast at this
hour is largely guess work.
St. Paul. Nov. 9. Returns from the
larger cities of the state are coming In
very slowly, but so far as received John
son, dem., for governor. Is maintaining
his lead over Dunn and running far
enough ahead of Ltnd's 1900 vote to In
pure his election by a comfortable ma
jority of tho ratio If gain is maintained.
Roosevelt's plurality continues to grow
and may go abovo 100,000. All of tho re
publican congressmen are elected with
the possible exception of Buckman, in
Boston. Nov. 9. Although the republic
ans carried Massachusetta for President
Roosevelt In Tuesday's election by 82.000
plurality, they lost tha governorship for
the first time since 1892, William L.
Douglas, of Brockton, defeating Gov.
John L. Bates, of this city, by about 25,
D00 plurality. The balanco of tho repub
lican state ticket Is claimed by the re
publican stato committee. The republic
ans made slight gains in both branches
of the legislature which will select two
United States senators.
Little Rock, Nov. 9. The Gazette's ad
vices from ali parts of tho state bear out
the estimates of a plurality of 40,000 for
Parker and Davis electors. Each of the
seven congressional districts Is demo
cratic by majorities ranging from 4,000 to
3.000. The total vote will fall short that
cast at the state election In September,
on account of apathy In some of the
Topekn, Kan., Nov. 9. At 2:30 o'clock
"Wednesday morning returns at hand
show that Roosevelt has carried Kansas
by a majority closely approaching 100,000.
B. W. Hoch Is elected governor by the
republicans by a plurality of 55,000 or
more. T. T. Kelly, republican candidate
for state treasurer, will receive a plural
ity of 12,000. The legislature, which may
have to elect a United States senator,
will be overwhelmingly republican. The
eight members of congress from this
state are all republicans. ,
Omnha, Neb., Nov. 9. The Indications
are that Roosevelt has carried Nebraska
by a plurality of from 35,000 to 40.000. The
republicans have elected congressmen in
the First, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth dis
tricts. The 8econd and Third are in
doubt. The legislature, which elects a
United States senator to succeed Sena
tor Dietrich, will probably be republican.
In Omaha the socialists have shown sur
prising strength and will poll the largest
vote in the history of their organization.
Concord, N. II., Nov. 9. This state has
preserved unbroken its line of republican
national victories which began with Fre
mont In 1856 and has given Its electoral
vote to Roosevelt by approximately 20,000.
Congressmen Sullqvay and Carrier are
re-elected by pluralities ranging from
7,000 to 9,000, and McLane, rep., for gov
ernor, lends HolIIs by about 15,000. The
legislature will be strongly republican In
San Francisco," Nov. 9. Scattering re
turns from California Indicate that
Roosevelt has carried the state by a larg
er majority than did McKInley four years
ago. Of the eight congressmen to bo
elected the republicans claim to be nb
suretl of eev'en with the Second district
in doubt In this district Bell, dem, la
running away ahead of his ticket
Salt Lake City, Nov. 9. Scattered re
turns from this state Indicate that Roose
velt will have a plurality exceeding 7,000.
Ills voto shows a heavy Increase in every
precinct reported. Indications point to
the election of John Cutler, rep., for gov
ernor, by a considerably smaller plurality.
The American (antl-ehurch) party voto
In this county may reach 6,000.
Providence, R. I., Nov. 9. Indentions
are that Roosevelt has carried Rhode Is
land by a plurality of over 5,000. At that
hour only about half the country districts
and a quarter of tho city districts wero
reporica. Tne result ror governor was
still In doubt with Uttero, rep., slightly
In the lead. Congressional seats were
also unsettled at midnight.
Milwaukee, Nov. 9. It is generally con
ceded that Roosevelt has carried Wiscon
sin by a plurality estimated at between
60,000 and 75,000. Both republican and
democratlo stato chulrmen claim the
state respectively for LaFollotte and
Peck. The Scofleld (national republican)
stato ticket received a very light vote.
Birmingham, Ala., Nov. 9. Later re
turns show that Congressman Burnett
nua been re-elocted to congress from tho
Seventh Alabama district by 2,000 ma
jority. Thomas Heflln's majority in the
Fifth dlBtrlct will bo 6,000. Theso wero
the only two democratic candidates
thought to have serious opposition.
Raleigh, N. C, Nov. 9. Thero in hardly
any doubt but that all ten democratlo
congressmen havo been elected. Only the
two mountain districts are In doubt, tlm
Eighth and the Tenth. Theso, the repub
licans do not concede, and It will tako
a day to know absolutely. The demo
cratlo majority in tho- state appears to bu
Richmond, Va., Nov. p. The election In
Vlrgtnla was absolutely without distur
bance, jjo. far jus hu been heard. Tha dfim-
oCrli'.lc fniijorlty 5h the presidential tick
et will be about 23,000. Nine congressmen
out of a total of ten have been chosen.
Slemp, the republican Incumbent In the
Ninth district, apparently re-elected by a
majority of about 1,200.
Jackson, Miss., Nov. 9. Returns thus
far received show that between 60,000 and
75.000 votes were cast und the opposition
to the democratic party will poll between
lO.Oixi and 11,000. The democratic majority
for Purker and Davis will be In the
neighborhood of 50,000. Mississippi re
turns eight democratic congressmen.
Portland, Me., Nov. 9. The six Maine
electors will cast their votes for Roose
velt and Fairbanks. Returns received
from nil but 134 of the 519 cities, towna
and plantations gave Roosevelt a plural
ity of 31,785. This is a republican gain
of 8,319 over that given In the same places
four years ago.
Atlana, Ga., Nov. 9. The returns- from
the Georgia election are still meager, and
there is no reason to change the estimat
ed total vote of 90,000, with a plurality for
Parker and Davis of something over half
this number. All 11 democratic congress
men are elected.
White River Junction, Nov. 9. Tho re
sult of the national election In this state
was as anticipated by the republicans,
Roosevelt carrying the stato by nearly
31,000 plurality. The only question be
fore the voters was the selection of pres
New Orleans. Nov. 9. The democrats
have carried Louisiana for Parker and
Davis by a majority of probably 35.000.
Seven democratic congressmen havo been
elected The election was peaceable and
outside of New Orleans a light voto was
Cheyenne, Wyo., Nov. 9. Partial re
turns Indicate that Roosevelt has car
ried Wyoming by 7,000 majority, and the
election of Mondell, rep., to congress,
and Brooks, rep., for governor, and tho
remainder of the state ticket is certain.
Portland. Ore., Nov. 9. Returns from
20 precincts in six counties In Oregon
outside of Multnemah county give Roose
velt, 1,274; Parker, 413; Watson, 12; scat
tering, 145. Same precincts In 1900: Mc
KInley, 1,103; Bryan. 871.
Chicago, Nov. 9. Secretary Dover, of
the national republican committee, has
received tho following telegram:
"Seattle, Wnsh. Democrats concede
Washington to Roosevelt by 20,000. We
claim It by 40.000.
Columbia, S. C, Nov. 9. Parker has
carried South Carolina by not less than
40,000 plurality. The democratic state
ticket has been elected without opposi
tion. The stnte legislature is unanimous
