Great political expectations evi
dently came to grief last night as the
returns came In So much was said
so much predicted that Bryan would
come under the wire a leader in yes
terdays vote that it drew a large
crowd at the Ocala House to receive
the returns H C ° Groves read the
dispatches as they were received and
there was so little In them to arouse
enthusiasm among the Democrats and
every prospect pleasing to the G O
Ps that at ten oclock there was a
solemn assembly relieved here and
there by a bright smile of a Repub
lican or the witty remark of H L
Anderson who soon had the field all
to himself Some Democrats became
so depressed that they were unkind
enough to remark that they believed
Mr Groves as he read the dispatches
doctor d them to suit Tafts election
e but this was only a little gangrene the
result of buoyant hopes dashed to de
spair by the unfavorable returns
Shortly after 11 oclock the crowd dis I
persed satisfied it was Bill Taft The
local vote we deem quite complimen
tary and satisfactorily democratic
There was said to be 1000 qualifitd
voters in the Ocala precinct and 627
votes were recorded The ticket was
a long one and so many were not fa
miliar with names that It took a long
E time to fill out the tickets a number
consuming fifeen minutes and then
marking names on the wrong side
There were ten voters who deemed it
the wiser plan to leave theIr ballots
unmarked and let thenlbe counted for
ti what they were worth Mr W S
Durst said this morning there wes a
handsome reward for the names of
these ten voters
a The < desire was so great to vote in
the afternoon the crowd at the door
became congested and so much time
was consumed In waiting that quite a
number of voters left in disgust We
s presume the question which Bill will
be elected was asked ten thousand
times yesterday
There was some previousness about
closing the polls the contention being
i T5 that the time to close was at sundown
and that sundown was 455 oclock
The result was quite a number of per
sons working In the mills and foundry
i were barred from voting The Inspec
tors and clerks of election did their
Sl duty well and with some forethought
Mn preparation things were so well
managed that by 10 oclock they had
completed their count and made their i
announcements J J
TbprQ wag great Interest displayed
In the vote for legislators as it was
the Impression that the liquor men
c and their friends had it in for W D
Cam the uncompromising disciple of
prohibition There were those who believed
3 lieved he would be beat but the re
turns received last night showed Mr
Cams vote to be two to his opponents
one But It Is all over now so far as
Marlon county Is concerned until two
years from now

Bryan and Kern May Represent Their

Special to the Star
New York Nov 4 305 P mThis
mornings returns indicate that Bryan
carried Maryland and West Virginia
by very small pluralities and an of
ficial canvass may be necessary in
each state Giving them to Bryan
cuts Tafts electoral vote to 296 and
swells Bryans to 187 Taft falls 87
below Roosevelts electoral vote The
democrats may carry the Nebraska
legislature which would insure Bry
ans election to the United States sen
ate The margin Is still close Had
ley who Is probably elected governor
of Missouri and Harmon who has
won Ohio were two democrats who
urged the punishment of Paul Morton
but whose judgment in rebate cases
was set aside by President Roosevelt
Bryans downfall was overwhelming
in that he lost where he was suppos
ed to be strongest New York City
gave a plurality of 15645 for Taft
Bryan lost Ohio where the labor vote
was expected to carry him to victory
ChIcago a city that had been abso
lutely promised to Bryan by Roger
Sullivan and other democratic leaders
went for Taft New York upon which
the Bryan campaign managers had
hopeful designs gave Taft the great
est plurality ever accorded a repub
Bean candidate for president The re
sult was a surprise not only to dem
ocrats in charge of the Bryan cam
paign but to the republicans In charge
of the Taft campaign Probably the
only leader who took the result as a
matter of course was President Theo
dore Roosevelt Mr Bryan at his
home In Nebraska figuratively threw
up his hands when he heard the first
reports from New York city He had
banked on a tremendous vote here but
he did not give up hope until he
heard of the republican landslide in
Illinois Tafts victory in Ohio and the
outlook in Indiana Then he went to
bed Out of the ruin of democracy
there still shines a ray oil hope for the
democratic standard bearers Bryan
and Kern Late returns from Nebras
ka indicate that the legislature of that
state will be democratic In that event
Bryan will probably be sent to the
United States senate There is also a
chance that the Indiana legislature
will be democratic and Kern may
join Mr Bryan in the ranks of the
senators For the second time in his
tory New York City went republican
by sixteen thousand Taft carried the
state by one hundred and ninety
eight thousand Hughes was elected
by a majority of seventyfive thou I

by a large majority The republicans
have the next Congress by fiftyfour
