St üBMb, Sow '•'• — With incomplete returns

for the first time in thirty years.

St. Louis.
Carrieu with the Republican landslide are the
candidates for Congress in S of the 10 district?,
a Republican cain of 7: and the semi-official
returns from the Stnto legislative district* give
a Republican majority of 14 on Joint ballot in
the next general assembly. This will mean the
defeat of Tr-ited States Senator Cockrell for
r »>-e]ection. His probable successor will be
either Cyrus P. Wnlbridge or Thomes K. Nied
ringhau?. chairman of the Republican State
The returns on other than the heads of the
respective State tickets are meagre, and it la
impossible to-night to predict with any degree
of certainty the outcome when the official vote
is received. It appears, however, that the entire
Republican Stato ticket, except Governor, is
elected by small majorities, and that the election

State Undoubtedly Republican. But
Very Close.
Baltimore. Nov. Complete returns from
twenty counties, with three counties estimated
on scattering returns, greatly reduce the early
estimates of a Republican plurality, and it is
now figured that Roosevelt's plurality will be
about 900. Democratic estimates cut it down
to less than 300. This is the closest vote In a
national election, with one exception, in 1001.
when Hering (Dem), for Controller, carried the
State by 141. the closest in the history of the
State. The Rtnte is certainly for Roosevelt, hut

Columbus, Ohio, Nov. 9.— Almost complete un
official returns to-night indicate that the Re
publican plurality in Ohio is between 210,000
and 21.">,00o. or over three times the plurality
this State ever gave any national ticket. About
a dozen counties have been carried by the Re
publicans for the first time, which means radi
cal changes in county and other local offices.
The aggregate plurality of the eighteen counties
carried by the Democrats 1b only lO.S-'IS, or less
than the Republican plurality in either of a half
dozen counties, one-half that of Cuyahoga and
much less than one-third th:it of Hamilton
The Republicans gained three Congressmen by
carrying all of the Congress districts except the
IV ti». In which Harvey C. Garber was re-elected
by 1,000. or less than one-third the usual Dem
ocratic plurality of that district. The only
close contest was in the election of Dawes, Re
publican, over Schneider. Democrat, in the XVth
Congress District, which gave Roosevc-lt over
2,000 plurality and Dawes only 200. It Is noted
that the largest Republican gains caire from
the mining and laboring districts.

St. Paul, Nov. P.— When all the returns shall
have been received, it is declared by Repub
licans that Roosevelt's majority will run close
to 123.(X¥>. if not more. An estimate made to
day from incomplete returns indicates lOO.OTtO
majority. The Republicans elected the entire
nine Congressmen without a shadow of doubt,
atvl the rest of the State ticket, including a
State legislature, which is strongly Republican
on a joint ballot.
John A. Johnson, Democrat, and R«y Jones,
Republican, were elected Governor and Lieu
tenant Governor, respectively. There Is now no
doubt as to Johnson's election, and the only mat
ter of speculation is the size of his majority
over Robert C. Dunn, the Republican candidate.

Omaha, Nov. l>— Probably complete returns
will be required to determine who is elected
Governor of Nebraska, Outside of Governor,
however, the Republicans have jnpde a clean
sweep nn national, State, Congressional and
legislative tickets.
President Roosevelt carried the State by prob
ably 75.000. Only two Congressional dlertrictsi —
the Second and Third— were at any time in
doubt, and to-day's figures place them la the
Republican column, thus giving a solid Repub
lican delegation from Nebraska,
Republican Plurality Estimated at
225,000 — Dcnezn'B Big Vote.
Chicago, Nov. 9. — Roosevelt and Fairbanks
carried Illinois by a plurality estimated at
225,000. It is certain that twenty-one, and pos
sibly twenty-three, of the twenty-five Republi
can candidates for Congress have been elected.
Returns from many counties are still incom
plete, but nearly every telegram only serves to
show the Republican victory more sweeping.
Roosevelt's plurality in the city of Chicago alone
was lOo.SIS, and the returns from Cook County
outside of the city will probably Increase this
by 12.000 or 15,000.
Charles S. Deneen, for Governor, ran cloge to
the President throughout the city. The State
gavo him the largest plurality ever cast for
Governor. !ate indications beingr that he
was elected by 210,000 plurality. Next to
President Roosevelt's record breaking vote, the
Socialist poll for Eugene V. Debs was a feature
of the election in ChitfaJO. Mr. Deba polled a
total of 41.505 votes in th« city, against 5. H0
cast for him in 15)00.
Returns indicate that Chicago has won a vlo
tory in her fight for a new charter, with about
70/KX) voles more than were necessary.

crats claim the election of Governor and Con
grpssnian-at-large. and the Republicans threaten
to contest the State election on the grounds of
alleged frauds in Denver. On the face of nearly

County by 4,. r too plurality, and he appears to
have a safe lead over Peabody without this
county. According to the returns in "The
Times,' 1 Adams's plurality In the State is a
little over 10,000. "The Times" concedes that
the result Is in doubt as to the other State
office?, but claims the legislature to be Demo
cratic in both branches. "The Post" says:
Lite returns this afternoon indicate clearly
tbat the Republican ticket in Colorado— national.
State and county— has been elected by pluralities
ranging from 2.<>00 to 10.000. A conservative
estimate places Governor Peabody's plurality at
5,000. He will carry Denver by from 1,500 to
Democratic Chairman Milton Smith made the
following statement this evening:
Alva Adams is elected by from 10,000 to
ir>.ooo. All the State ticket goes in with him.
according to our best information.
Republican Chairman D. B. Fairley makes the
follow ing claim:
Peabody will be elected by somewhere between
5.000 and 10,000. Tbe State ticket will run be
tween 10.000 and 15.00& Roosevelt will run
even higher than that. The three Congressmen
are elected by pluralities over 10.000. i expect
to bring Peabody to Denver with a plurality
ranging from 7.000 to 10.000. This is large
enough to offset any frauds the Democrats might
attempt in Denver. We will control both
branches of the legislature by good majorities.
Douglas's Election Inexplicable —
Large Roosevelt Pluralities.
Boston, Nov. 9. — The returns from this State
were completed to-day, and trie figures show
that the Republican Presidential electors re
ceived a plurality of 86,279 In a total vote of
422,825 cast by the Republican and Democratic
parties yesterday.
The votes for President and the head of the
State ticket were:
Roosevelt. 254.ri.~2, Parker. 1fiR.273; plurality
for Roosevelt, 86,270.
For Governor — Douglas (Dem.). 234,311; Bates
(Rep.). 19R.801; Douglas's plurality, 33.710.
Both the totaU*-ote of the two parties and the
Republican plurality for Presidential electors
are the largest ever, returned in the State. The
margin for Roosevelt exceeds by nearly 5,000
the plurality, tnen unprecedented, given Presi
dent McKinley in 1000. On the other hand, the
vote for Governor shows a plurality for the
Democratic candidate of 35,710, and the defeat
of Governor Bates in a Presidential year Is
considered one of the moet inexplicable features
of recent elections.
With the exception of Governor Bates, the

Give 100,000,
Pan Francisco, Nov. 9. — Eighty thousand for
Roosevelt is the plurality in California which
has already been recorded, and It is probable
that this figure will be raised to 100.000. As it
stands now, it Is the largest vote ever given for
a Presidential candidate in this State.
Pan Francisco wins the Republican banner by
giving 21,000 for Roosevelt, beating both Los
Angeles and Oakland. With a full Congress
delegation of eight Republicans, this makes an
almost unprecedented victory in California. One
of the most satisfactory features of Congress
triumph is that Livernasli was defeated In the
IVth District by Julius Kahn by over 7.000. E.
A. Hayes, Republican, defeated "Wynn In the
Vth District. Hayes is one of the proprietors
of the "San Jose Mercury." The Socialist vote
in San Francisco was heavy, amounting to
70,000 votes, 5,000 more than at last election.
Seattle, Nov. 9.— Complete returns from one
fourth of all the precincts in the State of Wash
ington, and Incomplete returns from, most of
the others, show that the Roosevelt electors
have carried the State by over 30.000 votes.
Albert E. Mead (Rep.) is elected Governor, over
George Turner (Dem.) by between f»,000 and
7.000 votes. Charles E. Coon (Rep.) la elected
Lieutenant Governor by fully 14,000 votes.
Every other candidate on the Republican State
ticket is elected by from 15.000 to 20.000. except
Humphrey, Jones and Cushman, for Congress,
whose majorities will be higher. The next leg
islature will be strongly Republican.
Salt Lake City, Nov. 9.— About one-third of
the voting precincts of the State give Roosevelt
27.351. Parker 1"».992. Debs. 1,509. The pre
cincts reported include many of the heavy Re
publican districts, but so uniform haa been the
gain for Roosevelt that it is now evident tbat
his plurality In the State will b« far in excess of
first estimates. Not half of the voting districts
of Salt Lake County have been heard from, and
probably will not be until to-morrow. Repub
lican State Chairman Spry to-day claimed the
election of the entire State ticket, an almost en
tire Republican legislature and the election of
the Salt Lake County ticket.
The latter claim is disputed by both Demo
crats and American party men. The voting
strength of the latter party is still problemati
cal, and will not be known until the count is
finished in this city. It may be a week before
accurate figures of the State vote are available.
Reno, New, Nov. 9. — Incomplete returns indi
cate a complete Republican victory, with Con
gressman only in doubt. Roosevelt's estimated
plurality will exceed 2.000. George S. Nixon.
Republican, will undoubtedly be elected United
States Senator, to succeed Senator Stewart.
Portland, Ore., Nov. 9.— Roosevelt's plurality
in Oregon, estimated from the best available
fig-ures. will probably exceed 40,000, twice the
majority ever given by Oregon to any Presiden
tial candidate. Tha returns Indicate that the
question of prohibition, which was submitted to
the TOten of twenty-three counties, has been
Cheyenne, Wyo, Nov. P.^Roosevelt has un
doubtedly carried Wyoming hy 6.000 or over.
The entire Republican State ticket is elected.
Butte. Mont.. Nov. 9.— Latest returns from the
State give Roosevelt a majority of nearly 10.000.
Governor Toole. Democrat, was re-elected, but
otherwise most of the State ticket is Republi
can. The legislature is Republican.
Still Xeeds Four Delaware Legisla
tors to Get Into U. S. Senate.
Wilmington, Del.. Nov. ».— J. Edward Addicks's
luck*" still follows him. While electing a ma
jority of the members of the Delaware legislature,
he is still short the four men necessary to place
him in th» United States Senate. The lull returns
to-day showed that "the perpetual candidate"*
would have only twenty and at most twenty-two
member* of the legislature who will vote for him
when th« i;<*m>rnl Assembly convenes An January.
The situation will be practically tnr same as it
was two years ago. since, the number of the ITnlon
Republicans remains the same. The antl-Addlcks
Republicans will have nine Assemblymen and the
Democrats twenty-one. Addicks and his lieu
tenants are saying they will get the necessary votes
from the Republican legislators elected in New-
Castle County, but every one of the nine men have
expressed themselves as favoring a vacancy in
preference to AilUtrks.
Honolulu, Nov. S.— Returns indicate that
Kalanlaole (Rep.) is re-elected as delegate to
Congress. The legislature will be Republican.
Phoenix. Ariz.. Nov. 9 —The election of Smith
(Df-m.) for delegate to Congress is conceded by
at least s<iO. The legislature will be Democratic
by probably two-thirds.
Guthrie. Okla.. Nov. 9- Returns from 20 of 28
counties Indicate the re-election of B. 8. Mc-
Ouire (Rep.> as delegate to Congress by about
|- - najatity over Frank Matthews (Dem.).

One of Greatest Victories in Ameri
can Politics, He Says.
Indianapolis. Nov. 9.— Senator Charles W.
Fairbanks. Vice-Pres!d-.nt-elect, to-day received
a flood of telegrams, one of the earliest mes
sages to arrive being a cablegram from John K.
Oowdy. Consul General at Parts. He received
many callers during th«» morning and afternoon.
Speaking of the result of the election, he said:
It Is a notable, victory— one of th« gr^at^t
victories that has been achieved In American
politics. It Is a victory for right principles over
wrong ones; It 13 a victory for the princi
ples of the Republican party and for the mas
n!ficent administration of Theodore Roosevelt
as President. The American people are a great
people, and when they think upon great political
questions their judgments are righteous alto
gether. lam gratified with the results in many
of the States of the Union, but It Is needier
for me to say that I am most gratified with the
patriotism manifested by the great State of
Indiana. But we should all remember that the
debate has closed, the verdict has been rendered,
and we all now settle back to our duties as citi
zens of this great republic and to our tetici to
one another.
I shall probably h? in Indlannpolls a week
longer. Mrs. Fairbanks and I have planned to
visit our sons. Robert and Richard, at Yale and
attend the Yale-Harvard football game on No
vember 19. I have an engagement to attend
a meeting of the McKlnley Memorial Commis
sion In New-York on November 22 and the
Home Market Convention In Boston on Decem
ber 1. It Is more than likely that I shall not
*»t back to Indianapolis.
The Senator did not say what wmiM **> M«

but how soon he was not to-day ready to an
