Lroughout the country.
I Late returns and corrections on those
ade before teemed to make It certain
pat Wilson carried thirty-eight states
the polls, while Iloosevelt was sec-
lid with six and Taft third with four.
I Democratic chairmen of Peunsylva-
In, Kansas and Idaho wired to na
onnl headquarters that the results in
nose states were bo close that It mbjht
quire an official canvass to make sure
bat Wilson had lost They were em-
iatlc In their claims of victory. This
Iould take two states from Roosevelt
id one from Taft.
As it stood, with the close states np-
lirtioned on the face of the returns ob-
Inable, Wilson will have 412 electoral
jtes, the greatest number ever given
a presidential candidate; Roosevelt
lUl have 104 and Taft will havo 12
horn his four states. This will give
,'ilHon a majority of 200 over all, a
urallty of 30S over Iloosevelt and a
urality of 400 over Taft Hoosevelt
till beat Taft by 02 votes.

lito the Democratic column, while
K'ashiiigtou's seven votes went to the
redlt of Iloosevelt
I Wyoming, which was credited to Wil-
Im on election night, goes into the
aubtful column.
It Is not quite certain that the Demo-
rats will havo control of both
I ranches of congress. There is no
uestlon about the house, in which the
democrats will have a plurality of ltil
Iccordlng to the latest figures. The
hogresslves will have sixteen mem-
era.
The senate is still in doubt. At best
lie Democrats cannot hope to control
by more than a slight majority, but
le results In Michigan, Illinois and
olorado are still In doubt In all
lesc states where senators aro to bo
ilected the legislature Is bo close on
lilut ballot as tho returns come In that
very district must be counted before
lie result cau bo known.
The senate as constituted today con-
tsts of fifty Republicans to forty-three
liemocrats, there being three va-
Bancles. The terms of thlrty-flve sen
I tors expire on March 3, fourteen
lemocrats and twenty-one Repub-
Icaus. Upon the face of tlie latest re
ams New Jersey, New Hampshire,
)elawarc, Colorado and Montana ap
arently have elected Democratic legis
itures which will send Democrats to
lie upper house at "Washington.
qual Suffrago In Three More States,
Three states havo been added to
Ihose where equal suffrage obtains,
vhile a fourth state appears to have
lone tho same way, although all votes
Ivill have to bo counted before the ro
lult Is assured. The trio udded to the
lual suffrago ranks are Michigan,
Kansas and Arizona, whllo Oregon's
iote Is so close and lu some districts
to confused that a complete count Is
heeded to establish tho victory or de
feat of the woman voter.

South Dakota For Roosevelt.
South Dakota, with Its five electoral

credited to Governor Wilson, has ap-
arently gone for Mr. Roosevelt by
about 0,000 plurality. With mora than

and the districts yet to hear from aro
In outlying parts of tho state, where
his streugth bns been greatest Burke
nnd Martin, Republicans, and C. II.
Dillon, Progressive, appear to have
been elected to the house of repre
sentatives. The Republicans have
elected their cnndldato for governor.
Illinois, which showed a strong lean
lug toward Governor Wilson when the
count was resumed, appears to be firm
ly In the Roonevelt column. Cook
:ounty pave Mr. Hoosevelt a plurality
af about 10,000. The returns from the
Mitlying counties reduced this to let-st
than 10,000. but with 2,875 precincts
out of 4.2SG counted Mr. Roosevelt had
a plurality of 15,1-10 over Governor
Wilson. The vote then was: Roo.e
velt, 277,030; Wilson, 202.-1D0; Taft.
158.02S. In 1,177 precincts outside of
Cook county the returns gave Wilson
111,403, Hoosevelt 100,231 and Taft 72.
B02. The same precincts in 100S gave
Taft 1S1.570 and Bryan 120,452.
Threaten Roosevelt's Lead In Kansas.
Mr. Roosevelt's good lend in Kansas
has been seriously threatened. With
less than a quarter of the precincts lu
he hns a lead over Governor Wilson of
a scant 1,000. The returns are mostly
from tho city districts, and Mr. Roose
velt Is expected to forge ahead when
the returns are received from the rural
districts.
Governor Wilson carried Now Jersey,
his own state, by more than 50,000.
Under his leadership the Democrats
carried Iowa hi a presidential election
for the first time In the history of tho
state. He has tibout 10,000 plurality
there, although the Republicans ap
pear to have carried the state ticket by
a safe majority.
Indiana went for Wilson by nearly
S0.OO0.
In New Hampshire, which It first
appeared had been barely carried by
Governor Wilson, on the latest returns
gives him a plurality of 1,570, Mr.
Roosevelt running third. This leaves
Vermont the only New England state
to remain Republican so far as the
presidential choice was concerned.
In Massachusetts the total vote was:
Wilson, 170,003; Taft, 152.255; Roose
velt, 140,152. Governor Foes was re
elected by nearly 50,000 plurality.
On the face of the returns It would
appear that Governor Wilson received
the normal Democratic vote, while ,
President Taft and Mr. Roosevelt di
vided the normal Republican vote.
New England's Loss Unprecedented.
The loss of New England, barring
Vermont, to the Democrats Is without
precedent Mulne has elected six Dem
ocratic electors for the first time lu the
history of the state. Massachusetts bus
managed to save a bare Republican
majority In tho legislature, enough to
elect a Republican to succeed W. Mur
ray Crane in the senate. Rhode Island
uIbo saved a Republican legislature ma
jority. Without precedent also was Ohio's re
jection of its own son, President Taft
That most loyal state has gone over
Into the Democratic column with Its
twenty-four electoral votes, all of Its
Important state offices and all except
two or three representatives.
Minnesota gave Governor Wilsou a
plurality of about 5,000, but elected a
Republican state ticket All the south
ern states gave Mr. Wilson tho usual
overwhelming Democratic majorities.
For a long time it appoared as though
Governor Wilson might carry Pennsyl

Mr. Roosevelt safely holds that state

Runs Ahead of Sulzer Here,
In New York city Mr. Sulzer'B plural
ity was 110,807 and Governor Wilson's
123,100. Manhattan and tho Broux
pave Governor Wilson a total of 104,211
votes and Mr. Sulzer n total of 147,101.
Mr. Sulzer will hove a legislature
with him which will be Democratic by
a good working majority. TIiIh Is the
second time In eighteen yoars that the
party has had controL The present
Democratic majority In tho senate ap
parently bus been increased from nlno
to twelve. The Democratic majority in
the UKseiubi probably will be ten.
The Bronx voted to separate itself
from New York county. The fight for
Bronx county resulted In 33,522 votes
for Its establishment against 23,007
acainst the division. There was much
spposltlon to the establishment of the
dow county among proiierty holders in
the borough, but it was unorganized.

In Lower House.
Philadelphia, Nov. 7. The complex

tion from Pennsylvania will bo twenty

crats as against n prescut represent

eight Democrats. The official election

ESS IS
LATEST
DEMOCRATIC
The Increase in the number of the
iiext delegation Is accounted for by
the four congressmen at large, all of
whom nre Republicans and who were
voted for on tho basis of the last reap
portionment, giving Pennsylvania tlilr-ty-six
instead of thirty-two representa
tives In tbc lower house.
For the first tlmo in seventeen years
Philadelphia will have two Democratic
representatives in tho lower house.
BAT STATE VOTE PECULIAR.
Legislature Republican Despite Demo
cratic Victory For President.
Boston, Nov. 7. The surprising fea
ture of the election which not only
gave the electoral votes of Massachu
setts to the Democrats for the first
time and elected a Democratic gover
nor and lieutenant governor Is the fact
that the legislature Is strongly Rcpub
lican, which means the selection of a
Republican as successor to W. Murray
Crane as United States senator. Ex
cept to say that tho Republicans, find
lng everything else was lost, devoted
their energies to saving the legislature
there Is no way at present of account
ing for this Republican success in the
midst of a Democratic landslide.
The Republicans, with four repre
sentatives' districts yet unreported,
will have a majority of fifty-two when
tlie legislature sits in joint session to
choose a United States senator. This
Is a gain for the party over last year.
The congressional delegation from
Massachusetts stands nine Republic
ans and seven Democrats, a gain of
three Democrats, the number of dis
tricts having been Increased from four
teen to sixteen since the clectlou of
two years ago.
Wilson's plurality in Massachusetts
is 18,030. He roceived a total of 174,
057 votes. Taft received 150,018 and
Roosevelt 141.025.
WILSON HAS EH0DE ISLAND.
But Republicans Elect Governor and
, Hold the Legislature.
Providence, It. L, Nov. 7. Complete
returns in Rhode Island show that for
the first time since tbo organization of
the Republican party In 1864 a Demo-
erotic candidate for president carried
the state. Wilson's voto In yesterday's
election was 30,200, while Taft receiv
ed 27,755, and Roosevelt received 10,
488. Rhode Island will be represented lu
the lower house at Washington by two
Democrats and one Republican. The
Republicans re-elected Governor A. J.
Pothler for a fifth term, a record un
paralleled in the history of the state.
The Rpubllcnns retain control of
the general assembly, having a com
fortable margin on joint ballot A
United States senator will be elected
in January to succeed George Peabody
Wetmore of Newport Judge Le Baron
Colt of Providence has been indorsed
by tho party nnd will undoubtedly bo
the next senator from Rhode Island.
WILSON'S MANY CALLERS,
Already There Is Tartc of Whom He'll
Name In Cabinet.
Princeton, N. J., Nov. 7. President
Elect Wilson's first studied comment
on his overwhelming election was a
word of reassurance to the business
interests of the country.
Throughout tho day tho stream of
congratulatory messages continued to
flow In uninterrupted to the president
elect and by night there has been
called to the attention of the futuro
president the good wishes of admirers
in nearly every state lh the Union, to
say nothing of the Philippines and two
Central American republics. Not all
of these congratulations came over
tho telegraph wire. Tho governor had
just finished a late breakfast when
members of the faculty of Princeton

New York. Persistent reports
that tho New York baseball club of
tho National Leaguo would dispense
with the services of Fred Snodgrass
as a result of his costly error in the
last world series aro set at rest in a
statement given out hero by John J.
McCraw, manager of tho Giants. He
say 8:
" I do not blamo Fred Snodgrass
in the least for his falluro to catch
that ily ball In the last gamo of tho
world's series at Boston. Snodgrass
Is a valuable and conscientious play
er and ho will bo a moraber of tho
Giants next season. His falluro to
make tho catch Is something that
would happen but onco In a thous
and cases, and I want to say that he
Is deserving of sympathy for this
failure. It hurts him more keenly
than it hurts anyone else. In this
connection i may say that I feel
oven woreo for Mathowson than for
Snodgrass, as Matty pitched thrco
excellent garaeB without winning any
of them. Thero never was and nev
or will bo another pitcher like
Matty."

AVOID THE HOT-HOUSE HOME.
The hot-house season Is here.
People are shutting up their houses
and firing up their furnaces until tho
temperature in the averago living
room approaches that of an ordinary
greenhouse.
Wo forget that while a tempera
ture of 70 degrees may be beneficial
to plants which are never taken out
of doors, most of us who are obliged
to earn alivlng must brave all kinds
of weather. Tako a carnation from
tho conservatory and place It in tho
open air when the temperature is be
low 30 degrees and it will die. Put
hot-house men or women out on tho
street on a blustery day and see how
soon they shiver.
People think that they catch cold
from drafts. What most often hap
pens is that they become overheat
ed from a close hot atmosphere, and
consequently aro easily chilled. This
lowers their vitality and allows the
cold in tho head to dovelop. Per
sons who aro accustomed to a 60
degreo or 65 degree room tempera
ture seldom suffer from chills or
colds. What Is more, they save coal
bills.
