The inking of Missouri into «he Republican

Unique Figure Among Presidents.
Rome. Xov. lf>.— The election of Mr. Roosevelt to
the Presidency of the United 6tates has been made
the occasion for the issue of an Italian translation
of his book, "The StrenJous Life." which is having
• larpe pa.li. All the newspapers of Rome print ap
preciative articles on the election of President
Koooeveit. The "Patria" say*:
Mr. Roosevelt does not represent a party, but a
superior individuality. He is the most popular man
in the United States, and in public and private life
1« a genuine champion of a strong and victorious
race, destined through her virtues and irrepressible
energy to have the largest part in the history of

Mexico City, Nov. 10.— results of the Ameri

acquired from Spain in both oceans, to the rapid

Democratic (rains Begin to Develop
in Official Count.
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.
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.
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.

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

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

Insinuating That the Election Wat
Carried by Corruption.
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.

Federal Officials Had Trouble in New-York —

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

address given. Tho family where he lived had also

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
"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.

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
"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

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
"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."
