New York, Nov. 7.Without affect
ing in the slightest the certainty that
Wilson and Marshall captured an
overwhelming majority of the elector
al vote conservative estimates com
pelled a transfer to the doubtful col
umn of some states where the results
had been recorded as certain. Among
these states were Iowa with 13 votes,
and Minnesota with 12, and ultra-con
servatives even included Illinois with
'29 votes and Pennsylvania with* 28.
At that hour Wyoming's three votes
and South Dakota's 5 had not been
Heavy reductions in the early re
ports of a large plurality for Roose
velt in Kansas, upset all calculations
so that at this hour Roosevelt's lead
over, Wilson had narrowed to 625
votes on returns from about one
fourth of the precincts.
In Illinois, the heavy Wilson vote
outside of Cook county, had reduced
Roosevelt's lead to about 15,000 as
against the estimated 100,000 or more
given him last night upon the Chicago
Tisfe Roosevelt supporters declared
there was no reason to put Penn
sylvania in the doubtful list even
though they admitted that early re
ports of the colonel's plurality prob-
*v ably had been exaggerated.
2 Overturning big republican majori
ties in states never before captured
by the democrats in a presidential
election, the Wilson-Marshall ticket
was swept into victory that carried
with it state offices, congressional
seats and the control of several leg
islatures that will have the oppor
tunity to oust republicans from the
United States senate and add to the
democratic strength in that body.
J* 'Assuming that Minnesota, where
the race between Roosevelt and Wil
son is unusually close, has been car
ried by the president-elect, the indi
cated result of the balloting is: Wil
son, thirty-nine states, 415 electoral
votes Roosevelt six states, 104 elec

Second only in interest to the over
whelming victory of Governor Wilson
and his running mate, Governor Mar
shall of Indiana, was the strength
shown by Colonel Roosevelt in lilt
nois, Pennsylvania and" other states.
On returns from states where the re
stilt was reasonably certain, it ap
peared that Governor Wilson would
have almost, if not quite, 400 of the
531 votes in the electoral college, and
that Colonel Roosevelt would have fornia, where a Wilson victory was
nearly 100. President Taft had re

Republican Victory Complete.
The victory for the Republican state
ticket is complete. State Chairman
Smith stated there was no doubt of
Bberhart's election by at least 40,009/
and that it would possibly amount to
more than that*. He claimed the elec
tion of all of the Republican state
candidates, including the railroad and
warehouse commissioners. ~i
In every instance it was made evi

was a personal strength, and not
strength gained by the third party or

In Congressional Districts.
In the different congressional di
tricts in Minnesota the winners have
attained their places easily.
In the First, Sidney Anderson ii
an easy winner over his Democratic
opponent, Clinton Robinson. In the
Second, W. S. Hammond, Democrat,
wins by a handsome majority over F.

over his Democratic opponent, F.
The Victory of F. C. Stevens. ~'&f'
The victory of F. C. Stevens in the
Fourth district was one of the unex
pected results. Mr. Stevens was fac
ing a bitter fight and the Democrats
had named a strong man. The com
plete defeat of Hugh T. Halbert is the
Ramsey county answer to the third
ticket, placed in the field after
the primary nominations were made.
In Hennepin county, the victory of
George R. Smith was expected but its
completeness was more than had been
anticipated in view of the three cor*
nered fight made against him.
In the Sixth District, C. A. Lind
berg is an easy winner over his
Democratic opponent. Dr. Gilkison
and A. J. Volstead was elected with
out opposition in the Seventh.
Clarence B. Miller, Republican, was
an easy winner over John Jenswold
in the Eighth, or Duluth district
while Halvor Steenerson wins by a
reduced majority in the Ninth.

Knute Nelson and James Manahan,

and congressman at large, respective
