WITHOUT i EQUAL
Majority in Electoral College to
Be Largest in Party's
History.
RESULTS SURPRISE EVERYONE
Democrats' .Carry Only the Solid
South and Fail to Hold All
the States Given to
Bryan in lflOO.
Br ASSOCIATED PRESS.
New Tork, Nov. 8. The 'Republican na
ional ticket has been elected by a vote In
the Electoral College that will exceed that
of 132 given for McKlnley in T30O. The re
sult of today's balloting was astounding
even to the most sanguine of the Repub
lican managers. Confident as they were
of success, they w ere not prepared for tho
astonishing figures -which followed the
closing of the polls, bringing into the Re
publican column not only all of those
States they had claimed as safe for their
candidates, but with the possible excep
tion of Maryland, every State clawed as
doubtful.
Democratic successes are confined to tho
solid South, in which Kentucky is includ
ed, and Mr. Parker has not carried a sin
gle State which did not give Its vote to
Mr. Bryan four years ago. Unofficial re
turns indicate that be has lost some of
those which the Nebraska candidate held
for his party- Official, figures from some
of the Northwestern States may slightly
change the totals.
ROOSEVELT'S STATEMENT.
As a dramatic climax to the sensational
majorities given him, came President
Roosevelt's formal announcement, that ho
would not be a candidate for re-election,
furnishing the only exciting aspect to an
election night otherwise so onesided that
It was impossible for even tho victors to
attain that degree of enthusiasm that
usually marks the occasion.
Late in tho night came an announce
ment from Mclvln G. Palliser, manager of
the campaign for Thomas E. Watson, the
candidate of the People's party, that as a
result of the overwhelming Democratic de
feat steps would be taken to form a new
party. To tills end, according to the an
nouncement given out. Mr. Bryan, Mr.
Watson and 'William Randolph Hearst will
be Invited to attend a conference In New
Tork in about, a week's time.
The period of suspense following the
closing of the polls was not prolonged. In
no election in recent years has the result
been definitely known so soon. Hardly had
the sun gone down when the results in
New York began to appear. Bulletin fol
lowed bulletin, each showing large Repub
lican gains, and by 7 o'clock It was evi
dent that the great Empire State had
given the Republican candidates a. major
ity beyond the predictions of the party
managers.
MAKE CONCESSIONS.
So convincing was the story of the bulle
tins that at 720 August Belmont at Dem
ocratic headquarters conceded Roosevelt's
Section by an overwhelming majority, and
'half an. hour later the Democratic leaders
who had managed the campaign, freely ad
mltted that the Republicans had carried
every doubtful State. There was no dls-co-itlon
to hope against hope.
As State after State seat In Its Repub
lican majority, and the wires told the tale
of the. ballots, bringing even from those
Commonwealths upon which they had
uased their figures of Democratic success
..ports of unprecedented Republican ma
.."Kities, they frankly conceded defeat and
offered no explanation. Soon after Mr.
Uelmont's admission Judge Parker ac
knowledged the situation by telegraphing
l-resldent Roosevelt his congratulations.
The perfect weather conditions which
prevailed over practically the entire coun
try brought out a vote which experienced
politicians preolct will be a record-breaker,
.and In this Increase of ballots the Repub
licans gained more than their share.
It Is not only a year of phenomenal
otes. but of phenomenal Republican ma
jorities as welt
. .PENNSYLVANIA HEADS LIST.
Pennsylvania heads the list as the ban
ner Republican State, with the plurality
of 325,000; New York comes next with 183,
"00. Nevada, which -was carried by Bryan
four years ago, is Republican, and the in
dications arc that Montana, Idaho, and
"Colorado, also Democratic in 1900, have
gone back to the Republican column.
Delaware is estimated at about 5.000 Re
publican. Massachusetts about M.OO ana
.Connecticut, in which the more sanguine
" of the Democratic leaders claimed to have
had hopes, is about 25.000 for Roosevelt
While on the national ticket the Demo
crats nave suffered a crushing defeat, they
r-ave retrieved themselves on some State
tickets. They have reversed the national
vote by electing Governors in Massachu
setts, Minnesota and probably in Colo
rado, ,
While compute returns are lacking at
this hour fl'-SOlo'clock), it seems probable
that the Democrats have elected Gover
nors In Nebraska and possibly West Vir
ginia, In the latter State the vote is very
close.
Montana also elects a Democratic Gov
ernor. FOLK RUNS AHEAD
INST. LOUIS, COUNTY.
Showlaa- a Great Surprise to Leaders
of Both Parties Bartnoldt
Has Bljr Lead.
Fourteen out of thirty-five precincts in
St. Louis County, Including Maplewood,
the largest precinct In the county, and
Webster Groves, gave Folk L263 and
Walbrldge 505.
Tot Congress Bartholdt received ffl
i and Tichaceck 930. The latter figures were
the regular ticket figures. Folk running
far ahead of his ticket In these precincts

It is not thought that the returns from
the other precincts of the county will af
fect tho returns. Folk's showing was a
great surprise to the leaders of both par
ties In this city.
MURPHY DOES NOT
ATTEMPT TO EXPLAIN.

leader of Tammany Ball, made the follow

BOTH SIDES CLAI3IKG THE STATE.
Democrat io Clinirman Says Parker
and Adams Will Win by 12,000.
Denver, Colo., Nov. S. Milton Smith,
chairman of the Democratic State Com
mittee, says Adam3 (Dem.) for Governor,
will surely have 8,000 majority over Pea
body (Rep.) outside Denver; that this will
be doubled by tho vote of this city, and
that Parker will not run more than 130
votes behind Adams.
D. B. Fairlcy, Republican chairman, says
that Roosevelt has certainly carried the
State, and that Governor Pcabody is safe,
though his voto will fall short of Roose
velt's. Returns of straight votes from twenty
three precincts in Denver give 2.334 Demo
cratic votes and 2,362 Republican. About
50 per cent of the ballots are scratched
and not yet counted.

Denver, Colo., Nov. 8. The Times

KENTUCKY.
DEMOCRATIC PLURALITY DOUBLED.
Factional Fight In Stroncly Repub
lican Eleventh District Cannes
Increase.
Louisville, Ky., Nov. S. With one-third
of Kentucky's 1,895 precincts reported at
U o'clock to-night, the voto Indicates a
majority in the State for Parker from
12.000 lo 14.000.
The figures of the Democratic and Re
publican managers show little variance
from this result. Kentucky In 190d gave
Bryan 8.C9S plurality. The returns from
6S3 precincts show a plurality of 16,026 for
Parker.
Only a few counties In the First and
Second mid the Eleventh districts, the for
mer being a Democratic and the latter a
Republican stronghold, hav.e been received.
In the Fifth District, composed of Louis
ville and Jefferson County, the Democratic
plurality of 3,696 in 1900 will be cut down
by fully 2.000 votes.
In the Third District also, the Demo
cratic majority was reduced. The com
plete returns from the strongly Repub
lican Eleventh District are not expected
for forty-eight houis. but the reduction
of the normal Republican majority there,
as the result of a factional fight over the
Republican congressional nomination, will
partly offset the Republican gains In the
Third and Fifth.
The result of the fight leaves the con
gressional delegation unchanged, ten
Democrats and one Republican. The Pop
ulists Increased their votes slightly.

LAFOLLETTE'S ELECTION' IX DOUBT.
Stntc Is Conceded to Roosevelt and
Republican Governor Is Probable.
Milwaukee, Nov. 8. At 10 o'clock to
night only scattering returns were received
from the election in Wisconsin. Tho State
is conceded to Roosevelt by a large plural
ity, and Lafollctte (Rep.) Is believed to
nave been eicctea uovernor over .Feck
(Dem.) by a sife plurality.
There are no figures at this time upon
which to make an estimate on the next
Legislature. So far seven Republicans and
one Democrat arc known to have been
elected to Coii(rres. and three districts aro
to be heard from.
Sixty precincts In Wisconsin, Including
thirty In Milwaukee give Parker D.S87,
Roohevelt 11.761. Peck S.0S2. Lnfollettc 9,321.
At 9:13 it is estimated that Roosevelt
will have a plurality of 30,000 In the State
and Lafollette (Rep.) a safe plurality for
Governor.
Indications are Roosevelt carried Rock
Countv by 3.000 plurality: Lafollette. for
Governor, carried the county by 800 plu
rality. From reports received up to this time
it Is evident that Lafollette is running be
h'nd Roosevelt fully 12 to 13 per cent

Dick at Republican headquarters estimat
ed that Roosevelt's plurality in Ohio
would exceed the plurality of last year.

It is apparent from the official reports so
far received that the vote in Maryland is
very close, nnd that the actual result may
not be definitely known to-night, owing
to the slowness of returns from remote
districts In eastern shore and southern

In Baltimore the Indications are that
there may not be a difference of ICO votes.
Incomplete returns from counties show
unexpected Republican gains, partlcularly
in the western counties.
Returns from SOS precincts out of 319 in
Baltimore give Parker 4G.513 and Roose

State Committee claims that Maryland
has undoubtedly gone Republican. Official
