The canvass of the returns of Tuesday's election in Wayne county was completed yesterday at noon, the canvassing board having been in continuous session since 6 o'clock on Tuesday evening. The task was a great one, involving a vast amount of clerical work and work that re quired the greatest care. The final figures as given out by the canvassing board did not make material changes in the results as announced in the Palladium yester day morning. Congressman Watson's plurality in the county was cut below the 500 mark, a thing that even the Democrats did not believe was possi ble, while Roscoe Kirkman, candi date for joint senator, Wayne and Union counties, had even a greater fallling off from the normal plurality, his lead over Wooley being 59.. All other " pluralities of Republicans where there were contests on with the Democrats were large. The State ticket went through with a "whoop" the pluralities given Sims, Republi can, being in excess . of 2,100. It was shown beyond question in Tuesday's election that the. majority of voters know how to vote a mixed ticket un der the Australian ballot system. Seven out of nine Republicans who voted, stood for the State ticket with out a scratch. Then they turned to the county ticket and what they did to it, the figures will tell. There were quite a large number of ballots thrown out in the county, especially in the city, because there were some persons who became confused in the scratching business and did a little too much blue-penciling, thereby los ing out altogether. Republicans who were with the ticket declare themselves greatly sur prised at the reduced plurality of Watson, but they regard the victory under such circumstances as a great one. The vote for Secretary of State, Congress and Joint Senator will be found in another part of this issue. The vote on other offices, as taken from the sheets of the canvassing board follows: PROSECUTOR. Wilfred Jessup (Rep.) 4,523 Cnarles A. Fryor (Soc.) 423 REPRESENTATIVE. Walter S.

St. Louis, Nov. 7. The election In Missouri resulted In heavy Demo cratic gains over the vote of 1904, and the indications are that the state has marched back to the Democratic ranks. Many of the heavy Democratic counties that slumped badly in 1904, made an old time showing for the Democratic ticket, state, congression al and loca'. Boone county in particu lar, not only redeemed its old fame as a Democratic stronghold, but saved the Eighth congressional district to the Democracy. The legislature seems Democratic in both branches beyond doubt. The Democrats will have 23 members of the senate and SO members of the house and the Re publicans 11 members of the senate and 60 members of the house. The Democrats not only 're-elected their five congressmen, but made a gain of eight more. WISCONSIN. Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 7. A gain of one congressman ly the Democrats Is the only change in the political com plexion of Wisconsin over tvo years ago, as shown by the returns. This change Is the defeat of Congressman Joseph W.. Babcock in the Third dis trict by James W. Murphy by a plu rality of several hundred votes. The state returns, while far from being complete, indlcale the election of Governor James E. -Davidson (Rep.) by a plurality of at least 60,000. The legislature is overwhelmingly Repub lican. The defeat of Congressman Babcock was due to heavy cutting of him by the Republicans, as Governor Davidson ran over 2,000 votes ahead of him. LaFollette adherents made a strong campaign against Babcock. NEW JERSEY. Trenton, N. J., Nor. 7. Revised re turns show that the Democrats will have the house assembly 31 to 29, and that the legislature will have a Re publican majority on joint ballot of 7. The Democrats have elected four con gressmen in NeW Jersey, a gain of three. The Democratic congressmen elected are William Hughes, Sixth dis trict; Legage Pratt, Eighth district; Edward W. Leake, Ninth district; James Hamill, Tenth district. While the legislature is Republican on the joint ballot, Senator Colby and Assemblyman-elect Fake, Republicans, have both announced that they will not under any circumstances vote for the re-election of United States Sena tor Dryden. INDIANA. Indianapolis, Nov. 7. Latest re turns show the election of five Repub lican and five Democratic congress men, with three districts in doubt These are the Second, Fifth and Thir teenth. The change from the earliei estimates was caused by wholesale scratching. National Democratic Chairman Taggart claims the election of seven congressmen and concedes the state by 17,000. Morr Defeats Gilhams. Fort Wayne, Ind., Nov. 7. Unoffi cial returns from all the counties in the Twelfth district show that John W. Morr (Dem.) is elected to congress over Clarence C. Gilhams (Rep.). DELAWARE. Wilmington, Del., Nov. 7. While the Republicans suffered a loss In majority at Tuesday's election in sub stantial returns, they have achieved a greater victory than ever. , They have lost no Republican district, and seem to have carried every one of the doubtful districts, in addition to cap turing some pronounced Democratic districts. On joint ballot the legisla ture stands: Republicans 36, Demo crats 16. This Republican legislature makes sure the election of a Republi can successor to United States Sena tor J. Frank Alee, whose time will ex pire on March 3, 1907. COLORADO. Denver, Colo., Nov. 7. Returns are incomplete, b-t sufficient to show the election of the entire Republican state, congressional and judicial tick ets, and a Republican majority of 30 or more on joint ballot in the next leg islature, which will elect a senator to succeed Thomas M. Patterson. Simon Guggenheim is the only avowed Re publican candidate for the senatorehip and he has had the support of the par ty leaders. OKLAHOMA. Oklahoma City, Okla.. Nov. 7. A statement from Republican headquar ters says the Republicans have elect ed 10 delegates in Oklahoma and from 10 to 15 delegates in the Indian' terri tory, giving them from 20 to 25 out of the 112 delegates who will frame the constitution for the new state of Oklahoma. News from the country districts in the Indian territory comes in slowly, N EBRASKA. Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 7. Returns re ceived at Republican state headquar ters indicate the election of Sheldon (Rep.) governor by about 15,000 plu rality. Chairman Rose of the state committee claims 87 Republican mem bers of the legislature, 67 being a ma jority. This will mean the election of Norris Brown, the state convention's choice for United States senator. KENTUCKY. Louisville, Ky., Nov. 7. Incomplete returns show that Governor Beckham is leading by about 2,000 votes. No returns have been received from 12 or 15 counties in the mountains, but they are expected to increase rather than diminish Governor Beckham's lead. The nomination of Governor Beckham is claimed by 4,000. The election for congressman from the Tenth district is still in doubt, and a dispatch received from Covington says the election of Congressman Rhineock in the Sixth, is not yet as- Democrats Outside ot Hearst Very Likely Elected In New York State. ROOT'S SPEECH DID IT GENERALLY ADMITTED THAT WORDS OF PRESIDENT IN MOUTH OF SECRETARY CAUS ED HUGHES' ELECTION. Publishers Pi ess j New York, Nov. 7. With Incom plete returns outside of Greater New York the result of the election in New York state aside from the head of the ticket is still in doubt. There is still a possibility that the entire Demo cratic state ticket, aside from gover nor, has been elected. All the Dem ocratic state candidates ran far ahead of William R. Hearst in Greater New York, and their pluralities here of ap proximately 140,000 over their Repub lican oionents may have the effect of overcoming the Republican lead in up-state counties, i nese estimates, ) however, necessarily, are based on the full state vote for governor, and de pend entirely on the estimate that lesser candidates held with Charles E. Hughes. In the face of the present returns Mr. Hughes came down to the Harlem river with a lead over Hearst of a lit tle more than 130,000. While this was sufficient to give nim a lead ot considerably more than 50,000 over Hearst, Mr. Hughes associates have the far greater plurality rolled up by the remainder of the ticket to meet. The closest contest undoubtedly will be between M. Linn Bruce (Rep.) and Lewis Stuyvesant Chanler, Inde pendent league and Democrat candi date for lieutenant governor.- Chan ler's plurality in Greater New York is about 135,000. Returns already in show that some of the up-state coun ties ran ahead of his ticket. Even if Mr. Bruce had come down to the Bronx on an even' footing with 'lughes the plurality of Chanler would have been a scant 5,000. If the re turns yet to come show that the Re publican candidate made gains in other counties this plurality may be cut down, if not entirely wiped out. Next to lieutenant governor the fig ures at hand show that John I. Wha !en, the Democratic candidate for sec retary of state, may come through a vinner by the closest margin. As more complete returns began to come in by counties it was seen that In some in stances there was a small but consist ent lead by the lesser Republican can didates over the head of their ticket. This fact served only to increase the uncertainty regarding the result of the officers below given. Mr. Hearst apparently carried only two counties in the state outside of Greater New York. These were Che mung and Schoharie. It was in his home city, however, that he encoun tered the bitterest and most determin ed opposition. King's county, of which Pat H. McCarren is the Demo cratic leader, last year gave Hearst for mayor a large plurality, but Tues day McCarren exerted all his forces to return a Hughes plurality in his coun ty. His instructions to his captains were to cut Hearst and vote the re mainder of the Democratic state tick e. While Mr. Hearst succeeded in car rying the county by a plurality of 4,563, the returns for the remainder of the state ticket show that his trou ble with McCarren cost him dearly. The plurality in the county of the Democratic candidates who were not affected by McCarren's order exceed ed that of the head of the ticket by more than 30,000. Had Hearst receiv ed these votes it would have cut Hughes' lead In the state practically In half. Mr. Hearst made a statement in which he admitted defeat, saying "the people have decided to retain the Re publican party in power." He also said he was "enlisted in this fight against the control of the government by the trusts and corrupt corpora tions, and I will fight it to the end." Mr. Hughes said: "I am very much gratified, but whatever the plurality may be, my feeling is not one of ela tion, but of responsibility." RHODE ISLAND. Providence, R. I., Nov. 7. Mayor James R. Higgins of Pawtucket, Dem ocrat, defeated Governor George H. Utter, Republican, for re-election by a plurality of 1.23S. The rest of the Re publican state ticket was elected. Re publicans control the general assem bly, which is "to choose a United States senator to succeed George P. Wetmore. In the First congressional district D. L. D. Granger (Dem.) was elected over Elisha Dyer (Rep.) by 727 plurality. The congressional dele gation reatains unchanged. MINNESOTA. St. Paul,- Minn., Nov. 7. Governor John A. Johnson, Democrat, has been re-elected governor of Minnesota by at least 40,000 plurality, and the final figures may go considerably higher. The remainder of the state ticket .is Republican, with the possible excep tion of secretary of state. The ma jorities of the Republican officials elected range from 25,000 to 60,000. James T. McCleary, the present rep resentative from the Second congres sional district and chairman of ways and means committee of the house, has been defeated by his Democratic opponent, Winfleld S. Hammond. On the face of the returns at hand Ham mond's plurality is 600. -There Is a large element In the Republican party Boston No. 1.

Illinois went Re publican by over 100,000, the vote for Smulski, state treasurer, footing about 120,000 with a few districts estimated. Chicago gave the state ticket a plu rality of over 50,000. The Republicans lost two congressional districts in Chi cago and .two more down state,. mak ing a gain of four" for the Democrats, and giving them five Instead of one In the Illinois congressional delegation.

He had hoped that the Yellow Journalist would be completely snowed under. That he was not, still leaves him a power In the Democratic party and Mr. Roosevelt thinks he, is a possibility for President on the Democrat ticket in 1908. If this be true, it Is likely that Roosevelt will consent to run again. cans on joint oanot on returns so rar received, and they do not look for any change that will give the Republicans less than.flve majority on joint ballot. NEW HAMPSHIRE. Concord, N. H., Nov. 7. Election returns showed no material change in results. Floyd (Rep.) led Johnson (Dem.) for governor by an estimated plurality of 2,220. A majority vote is required and the election will probably be thrown into the legislature, which it is believed will be Republican. Con gressmen Sulloway and Currier, both Republicans, were easily returned. ARKANSAS. Little Rock, Ark., Nov. 7. Late re turns confirm dispatches that a light vote was polled in Arkansas. All Democratic congressmen were return ed. In the Fourth district, where Secretary Shaw and Vice 'President Fairbanks made speeches in the inter est of George Willes, the Republican candidate, W. B. Cravens (Dem.) was elected by a reduced majority. WE8TVIRGINIA. Charleston, W. Va,, Nov. 7. Re turns from the state are incomplete, but sufficient has been received to show the election of all five Republi can congressmen and a Republics , legislature by a good majority on joint ballot The legislature elects a suc cessor to Senator Stephen B. Elkins. TENNESSEE. . Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 7. Returns indicate the election of Patterson (Dem.) for governor by 18,000 over Evans (Rep.). The vote was very light. The legislature will be largr y Democratic and the congressional del egation will stand two Republicans and eight Democrats, at as present. ALABAMA. Montgomery, Ala., Nov. 7. All re turns Indicate that B. B. Comer (Dem.) has practically polled all the votes for governor. Congressman Wiley is returned in the Second by an overwhelming vote, and Burnett in the Seventh by an increased majority. PENNSYLVANIA. Philadelphia, Nov. T. The reform movement in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania, inaugurated last year as a result of the Philadel phia gas light fight, received a severe blow in"' Tuesday's election. The fu sion party opposed to the regular Re publicans was either badly defeated or had its last year's vote greatly re duced. Stuart. Republican candidate for governor . ssainst Emery, fusion, ran very strong everywhere, and his plurality may reac.-h 75,000. Last year the fusioaits earned the state for state treasurer by a plurality of 88, 000. The other candidates on the Re publican state ticket were elected by pluralities slightly under that of Stuart. The principal fight in the city was made for the office of district at torney. The leaders of the City party, which had effected fusion with the Democrats and Prohibitionists on the local ticket, felt certain that D. Clar ence Siboney, their candidate for dis trict attorney, would win, but the fig ures show that Samuel P. Rotan, his rlepublicaa opponent, carried the city by 12.124. T.esult U: Cr-'r.-San Francisco, Nov. 7. Returns re reived from various sections of the ;tate say Gillette (Rep.) for governor, s probably elected by about 10,000 majority with Bell, Democrat and Union Labor, second, and Langdon, Independence league, third. San Fran cisco, which was expected to give Bell a big vote, will probably give Gil lette about 1000 majority, while in Los Angeles, normally a heavy Re publican city, the vote between Gil lette and Bell was comparatively close. It is probable that all the eight California Republican congress men will be elected. The legislature will be Republican, but there is no United States senator to be elected this year. Result In Hamilton County. , , Cincinnati, Nov. 7. According to the returns and best estimates Thomp son (Rep.), for secretary of state, car ried the state by a. plurality of 47,256. Thompson's plurality in Hamilton county Is 8,671. All the Republicans on the county ticket are elected ex cept the Infirmary director by plural ities ranging from 581. to.502. -;v' it Wgp HOW HAVE A GOOD President's Appeal to the Country Heeded in Satis factory Manner. PREDICTION CAME TRUE CHAIRMAN SHERMAN, PREVIOUS TO THE ELECTION, PREDICTED REPUBLICANS WOULD HAVE MAJORITY OF FIFTY (Publishers' Presa Washington, Nov. 7. President Roosevelt's appeal for a Republican congress was not in vain. The result at this hour shows the election of 217 Republican congressmen, 162 Demo crats, with 7 districts to be heard from.. There are 386 seats to be filled in the house, and should the Demo crats get the remaining districts they would still not have the control. The most sanguine prediction put out by Chairman Sherman previous to the election was that the Republicans would retain control of the house by SO. As the returns stand now the Democrats have gained 21, districts held in the present congress by Re publicans as follows: Illinois 2, Iowa 1, Missouri 8, Nebraska 1, New Jersey 1, New York 1, North Carolina 1, Ohio 3, Pennsylvania 5, Indiana '5 and Wis consin L In Illinois the defeated Republicans are Rives and Dickson of the Twenty first and Twenty-third districts; In In diana, Cromer of the Eighth; in Iowa, Lacy of the Sixth; in Missouri, Ful kerson of the Fourth, E11I of the Fifth, Wellborn of the Seventh and Caulklns of the Fifteenth; In Nebraska.

New York, Wadsworth of the Thirty-fourth; in New Jersey, Picket of the Ninth; in North Carolina, Blackburn of the Eighth; in Wisconsin, Babcock gives his seat to a Democrat; in Pennsyl vania, Dale of the Tenth, Palmer of the Eleventh, and Samuel of the Six teenth. The Republicans gained the Third Kentucky district, where O. D. James defeated Representative Rich ardson. This is the only Republican gain so far reported. Speaker Cannon received his usual 15,000 majority, and comes back to congress for the seventeenth time. The fight against Representative Dal zell of Pittsburg was futile, as Mr. Dalzell Is re-elected with a reduced majority. Mr. Wadsworth, who is chairman of the house committee on agriculture, was defeated by Peter A. Porter, who announced himself first as an Independent Republican and at tacked Mr. Wadsworth's record on the meat inspection legislation. He was endorsed by both the Democrat and Independence league. Mine Workers In Congress. Philadelphia, Nov. 7. The Unlte-i Mine Workers of America, which or ganization entered the "political fleM for the first time in this state, will be represented in the next congress by two of the officers of the organiza tion, and in the lesis'.ature by about a dozen members of the union, all &l . . . . 1 T. t cratic ticket. The miners representa tives in congress will be William B. Wilson, International secretary-treasurer, who defeated Representative Elias Deemer, Republican, in the Fif teenth district, and Thomas D.
