THE CURTIS PUBLISHING CCMPANV, PHILADELPHIA, Pa. MARVLAXn IN DOUBT. Democratic (rains Begin to Develop in Official Count. TBT TELECBAPH TO THE THIBUNK.I Baltimore, Nov. 11.— Latest returns from every county in the State and Baltimore city, some official and others unofficial, give Roose velt 108.397 and Parker 108.155 votes, making Roosevelt's plurality 212. Baltimore, Nov. 10. — With the result on the electoral ticket narrowed to a margin of forty or fifty votes. Maryland to-night is In doubt. The chairmen of both parties claim the State, and only the complete official count will decide. Close estimates and the unofficial count show a Republican plurality of less than a hundred. The official canvass began throughout the State to day, and In AnnerArundeland several other coun ties, as well as In Baltimore City, small Demo cratlo pains developed. Republican leaders pay that If the official canvass does not show the State for Roosevelt, which they are certain It is on a fair count, they will have recourse to the courts and demand the opening of every ballot box and a recount. There is Intense excitement in the Democratic circles, and the tension is also preat among the Republicans. It Is not only the closest vote ever held in Maryland, but probably in any State In the Union. In a number of the coun ties, as well as in Baltimore City, the official canvass shows that ex-Governor Frank Brown and Charles J. Bonaparte, whose names headed the list of candidates for electors on the Demo cratic and Republican tickets respectively, ran far ahead of th^ other electors on the same ticket. Many voters, instead of putting their mark in the box next to the candidate for Vlce- President, put It In that next to the first elector named. This will cause a mixed electoral vote in this State. The indications are that Brown may be the only Democratic elector, thus mak ing Man-land's vote 7 for Roosevelt and 1 for Parker. Democrats, however, claim they will get the entire electoral vote. There was a large falling off In the vote as compared with that of 1900. Four years ago the total vote for the Presidential candidates of the two leading parties was 258,423. This year, as far as can be ascertained from unoffi cial figures, It was about 214.000, showing a loss of about 44.000, due largely to the whole sale throwing out of trick ballots. MISSOURI SURELY WON/ State Committee Reports — Folk's Election Conceded. Pt. Louis, Not. 10.— With seven counties still to be heard from at nightfall, the returns showed that Roosevelt's plurality In Missouri stood 15. 755. Of the seven counties unheard from six went for Bryan in 1000. All are remote and sparsely settled. At the same time Folk's plu rality for Governor stood 34.583. Figures on the remainder of the Democratic ticket were still lacking. At Democratic State headquarters it was stated that only one-third of the returns from the State on the balance of the State ticket had been received at G o'clock. It was con tended that the Ptate ticket might not be de feated. No claims were made concerning the complexion of the legislature. In fact, little comment was made outside of the plain state ment that the legislature is Republican. The following two telegrams were sent to night by Republican Ptate Chairman Thomas K. Nledringhaus: Hon. George B. Cortelyou. chairman Republican National Committee, New-York: I have not telegraphed before this, as I de sired to be absolutely certain, and I now an nounce to you with great pleasure that the electoral vote of the State of Missouri will be cast for Theodore Roosevelt for President. Hon. William Loeb, Jr., secretary to the Presi dent, Washington. D. C: Please convey to the President the fact that Missouri's electoral vote will be cast for Theo dore Roosevelt. Chairman Niedrlnghaus conceded that Folk had been elected Governor, but stated that there was not the least doubt that the rest of the Democratic ticket had been defeated. Ho said: The Republicans will have a majority in the legislature on Joint ballot of at least 14, and perhaps 20. This means the election of a Re publican United States Senator. The returns are pouring in rapidly now. and I fool certain we will know the definite results before morn ing. They will show that the Republicans have elected eight Congressmen, and as the XVlth District Is in doubt, its returns may show the election of one more Conpreseman, making nine in all. This certainly has been an unprecedent ed election In Missouri. Wo will contest the elections in the Xlth and Xllth districts. MR. RIIS JOYFUL OVER THE RESULT.

Denver, Nov. 10.— At a meeting of Republican candiates and party leaders to-day it was de cided to begin immediately a contest for the places of all the Democrats elected in Colorado on the race of the returns. An effort will be made to teat all the Republicans, from Gov ernor down. The case will be curried Into the courts on the charge that the successful Demo crats were elected by glaring: frauds in Denver, and a nu:nber of affidavits In support of the charges of fraud have been filed at Republican headquarters by the Republican watchers and judges.

PARKER'S DUPLICITY. Insinuating That the Election Wat Carried by Corruption. fFKOM THE TRTBUNF BfBEAU.I Washington, Nov. 10. — In the expiring hour of his political career, Mr. Parker, of Esopus. has taken occasion once more to cater to public con tempt, to the amazement of Republicans and the disgust of Democrats. These were the sen timents expressed on all sides to-day with ref erence to Parker's "swan song." Even the tre mendous repudiation of last Tuesday evidently failed to impress him with the contempt of the American people for the man who prefers in famous and unfounded charges against the President of the United States, and as unwilling to learn the temper of the public as he was the facts regarding the Philippines and every other national question he saw fit to discuss, in his letter of yesterday he reiterates the charge that "the money contributed to the Republican party by the trusts Is not only dishonest money, but it is given that the trusts may without hin drance take a larger sum from the people." While manifestly he dares not reiterate the charge of conspiracy ami blackmail which h© bo recklessly preferred before President Roose velt's manly demand for proof, the Democracy's erstwhile candidate still deals in innuendo and Insinuates that the overwhelming indorsement given to President Roosevelt by the American people was the result of corruption, that over eight million Americans were corrupted by the contributions of the trusts. And In discussing his own future, Mr. Parker displays liis usual shiftiness. He craftily re marks that he will not "seek " another nomina tion, leaving open the loophole of accepting a nomination "forced" upon him. If. however, the expressions of Democrats in Washington and elsewhere are to be accepted as an indication, such an emergency is unlikely ever to confront Alton B. Parker. The Btrong contrast between President Roosevelt's assertion, made in the hour of victory, that he will not "accept" an other nomination, and Mr. Parker's evasive promise that he will not "s^ek" another nomi nation, would seem to call for no comment, al though It has elk-ited many from members of his own party, whose indignation at tho candi date that was foisted on the Democracy at St. Louis knows no bounds. IIERRICK OX THE RESULT. Satisfied with Work Here— Calls Victory Personal. Albany, Nov. 10.-Judpe P. Cady Herrlck. the de feated candidate of t lie Democratic party for Gov ernor, will st.irt to-morrow for an extended visit to Havana. His frloi'ds say that his health was poor when he accepted the nomination, and that while he stood \h(: vigorous work of the campaign well, h«> Is now In need of rest nnd recuperation. On his return ho will resume the. practice (ft the law, whicli was interrupted by his election to the Supreme Court bench twelve years ago. Ho and his son, Charles Herrlck, have taken office* to gether. One of Judge Herrick's last act* to-day, prepara tory to starting, was to send letters to Senator McCarren, <'f Brooklyn, and Charles F. Murphy, leader of Tammany Hall, of New-York, and State Commltteeman Patrick E. Mcf'abe, the local Demo cratic leader, thanking thorn for their support and expressing confidence in their loyalty and that of tho party generally. In discussing the result of the election In State and nation to-day, Judge Her rk'k eaid: It was not to be expf-oted that New-York and Kings counties would not share in the sentiment that seems to have prevailed over the country. So far as I can discover from tho returns the Demo cratic organisations of New-York and Brooklyn are not subject to any criticism. It is true we did not get the majorities In those places we expected, but it also is true that we did not reduce Republican majorities north of The Bronx as wo hoped and ex pected to <i" New-York and Kings counties have relatively dune as well as tho other counties of the State. Perhaps the Republican party would have won this (ilection In any event But the magnitude of th-.-ir victory is due to the personality of President Roosevelt, and It is his victory, and not that of the party. Kver since, he < ntered public life as a mem ber of Assembly, soon after his graduation from college, lie lias had a picturesque career, and his ality lias been an exceedingly attractive one to tho. people.

Federal Officials Had Trouble in New-York — Some Arrested. fPROM THE TRIBUNE BURBA tJ.I Washington, Nov. 10.— The government employes who went to New-York to cast their votes were at their d^eks in tiie various offices this morning, most of them elatod over the result. There were many complaints that the voting by government employes In New-York was accomplished under great difficulties, and In somo cases with an Inter ; iptlon In the form of a trip to the nearest station h'djs'-. One chief clfik of an important bureau of one of the executive departments had an interest ing experience In an uptown precinct.

Tho family where he lived had also moved. His explanation was accepted by the regis tration officials, who, however, appeared to take no note <'f the circumstance?. When the chief clerk went to the voting place Tuesday morning he was challenged.

(ostiniUKl from flr»t P«g«" the building or operation of a railway. It was not specified anywhere that the commission snould have powers to confer privileges other than those pertaining to a rai'.way. The con tract which the operating company holds does not permit or pretend to permit advertising- It merely uinks at it. but the commission had not the power even to wink at such a clause in the contract. "The contract says that no advertising ?hall be permitted which interferes with the ready identification of stations or the eas y operation of the road \\- any respect. The engineer of the commission has declared that the signs now hung In the stations do interfere with the ready identification of these stations. The signs de stroy the effect of the designs adopted by the architect, and mar the beauty of a great public utility. "As a fourth consideration, the subway was laid out as a public thoroughfare; the act spe cifically declares that It shall be devoted to pub lic uses and considered a street. These signs interfere with the public in Its uses of this bit of the city's property and damage and destroy that property. It is my opinion that if this case were properly presented, the courts must sus tain It for these four reasons: That the rompaay has no right to be in the advertising business; that the commission has no power to allow the company to engage in this advertising business; that the Figns violate a distinct provision of the, contract, and that they interfere with the rights of the public and are damaging and de facing public property." In a letter, hitherto buried In the records of the Rapid Transit Commission, August Bel monfa opinion on the subway signs Is made so clear that he who runs may read. Mr. Belmont considers the decorative schemes outlined for the stations "almost an Interference" with the advertising privilege, and tells the commission that It needn't spend much money on walla which his advertisements will cover. On November 11. 1902, Mr. Belmont wrote the following to Alexander E. Orr, president of the Rapid Transit Commission: I very much regret that the decoration of sta tions, even under the most economical basis, is a great deal more than Mr. McDonald estimated, and is not satisfactory to us. The contract be tween the commission and Mr. McDonald of course, allows considerable latitude to the com mission In treating the decorations. At the same time, I think It is both wrong and unjust that the treatment should be almost an Inter ference with our advertising privilege, which is both an Important source of revenue, as well as what we consider a business entertainment for the public, who are not. In active business sta tions, given to admiring decorations. In my Judgment the stations should be so decorated and finished as to leave blank spaces on the walls to be covered with advertisements under the approval of the commission as to the design. In short, I can see no reason for ex pensive tile work which may be subsequently covered with advertisements. TO TEST SUBWAY AIR. 1 >. Darlington Orders Chandler — Latter and Bryan Disagree Over Job. Because of the widespread statements that the air in the subway was impure and a men ace to health, Health Commissioner Darlington yesterday authorized Professor Charles F. Chandler, of Columbia, consulting sanitary of ficer of the Health Board, to make tests of the air conditions and report to him. Professor Chandler has already made some tests. K. P. Bryan, vice-president of the Interborough com pany, said that last Friday he engaged Pro fessor Chandler for the company to make tests of the air. Professor Chandler said last night that he had declined the request of the Inter borough that he act for thorn, as he wished to make Independent tests. There have been many complaints that the air In the subway is vitiated, that it is deficient in oxygen and that the ventilation is insufficient. Different experts have given expression to diametrically opposite views. Complaints reached the Health Department. Dr. Darling ton and his advisory board made experiments when the subway was first opened, and found that In the bore of the tunnel the air was good, but that at the stations It was impure, because vitiated air swept out of the tunnel collected at the stations. The conditions did not warrant action by the Health Department then. Dr. Dar lington thought, because the tunnel was new. and the operating company should be allowed to make what changes it found necessary. So many physicians declared thaf the air was a menace to health, however, that Dr. Darling ton decided to have the conditions there passed on officially, and authorized Professor Chandler to make the tests. Professor Chandler said that what tests he had already made showed him the air was good, as he expected they would. "Why shouldn't the air be good?" he asked. '"The tunnel Is of brick and concrete, with layers of felt paper. Nothing impure can get into the tunnel except the people themselves, and they are not crowded as they are in a streetcar They have plenty of air space. The air In the tunnel is kept in constant circulation by the passage of the trains, and at most of the sta tions there are four large passageways to the fresh outer air; in all stations two. The tunnel is large and airy; the ventilation, so far as T can see, good. I shall make other tests, of course, because I don't want my report to de pend on chance tests. The report will be ready, probably. 111 a week." Mr. Bryan, of the subway company, bo fore ho had heard of Dr. Darlington's action, said that he had hired Professor Chandler last Friday to investigate air conditions. Professor Chandler had made a preliminary trip through the sub way with Mr. Hedley, he said, and would make others. "We are treating this question of bad air as a serious affair," said Mr. Bryan. "If there is a defect In the subway or Its ventilation, we want to remedy It. We believed that there' was fluffleient outlet to the outer air through the station entrances and exits which ari- not closed, as are the kiosks In the Paris subway, for In stance, by doors. We will remedy any defect thut is shown to us, however." Mr. Parsons thought the complaints of bad air foolish. The host answer to that charge, he said, was furnished by the analyses made' hy Professor Alfred Spice.' of Cooper Union. He found that the air w;is little worse than or dinary outdoor air. Yesterday, however. Pro fessor Spice said that the longer the subway was used the worse the air would grow, becom ing staler and mure damp from the exhalations of the v-assengers. The remedy, he said was to put In exhaust piprs between stations, which mechanically should <tr.iw out the tunnel air and draw In fresh air through the subway «n trancea. PARK FENCE SUIT UP TO-DAY.

Says MurpJty. The Democratic campaign managers began to poke their heads out of the c> clone cellar yesterday and chirp. Thomas Taggart. chairman of the Dem ocratic National Committee, arrive here from Indiana, and he summed up the whole situation and explained the overwhelming defeat by saying, "There were not enough Democrats." Mr. Taggart had a long talk at headquarters yes terday with August Belmont, William F. She-nan and Delancey Nicoll. At the close of this confer ence it was announced that the Parker men had nothing more to say. Taggart declared blandly that he was in line with Bryan, and would work in har mony wlth( him to reorganize the party. He said that he had no plans for a conference with Mr. Bryan or any other Democrat. About the reorganization of the Democratic party Mr. Taggart said: It is entirely too early to talk about reorganiza tion. Let everybody cool off first, think It over and look to the future. I take no pesslmlutlc view of the. situation. It was a great personal triumph for Mr. Roosevelt, and the fact Is that had any one else other than Judge Parker hten nominated on the same platform he. could not have been elected. Tho chairman was asked what he thuught of Judge Parker's manifesto, published yesterday morning, and he replied that hi had not read It. A cf.py of It was handed to him. and after reading It he said: "Well, that Is Just the kind of man I thought he was."' "How about the policy pursued by the national commltteemen in this campaign?" he was asked. "Oh. that is different," he quickly replied. "Wow you're talking 1 different." Mr. Taggart seeme-l to Infer that their conduct of the campaign was not entirely satisfactory. Charles F. Murphy, at Tammany Hall, said: "I have no dissatisfaction with the leaders, and there will be no shake-up in Tammany Hall. The district leaders worked loyally, to a man. Th« leaders' reports, I found, were Quite accurate, but I must admit that I was somewhat surprised at the extent of the Roosevelt landslide.. Queens was the only borough in greater New -York that did better than Manhattan and The Bronx, although Manhat tan and The Bronx acquitted themselves creditably, as they gave Bryan only 25>,Oft) majority, while this time the plurality is several thousand larger. New- York did better than any place in the country. There was ik> knifing in Tammany Hall. William F. Sheehhu was asked last night whnt he had to say regarding Mr. Bryan's statement about reorganization. H« replied: "T have nothing to aay I have paid nothing for a year, and will not begin now. I have no statement to make, and will make none." 'POLE CUTTERS BALKED. Light Company Straps Man to Each and Dares Villagers to Fell It. Oyster Bay.
