Columbus, May 23.—Scattering turns from the most distant districts which have been received In the last few hours indicate that Roosevelt's delegates, acquired at the Tuesday primaries will not drop below the thirty-two hitherto accorded him. Wilson has made slight gains and there Is a possibility that Harmon'a delegates will not total more than twenty-seven. The respective pluralities of the can didates in the democratic preferential primary, with practically complete re turns from all but seven counties, are 10,137 for Wilson and 23,228 for Har mon, giving the governor a majority of 13,091. The governor lost his home county. Hamilton, in the First district, by a close vote but suffered no loss of dale, gates there inasmuch as his opponent has no candidates for delegates. Clemont county, home of Lieut. Gov. Hugh Nicholas, Harmon's campaign manager, gave Wilson a plurality of seventy-five. Supporters of the Ohioan are said to be in control of the county convention, however. On the basis of tabulations of dele gates to the republican state conven tion Roosevelt apparently has 387 out of 754, with 378 necessary to control. The county conventions to which the delegates were elected Tuesday and at which all but twenty-three counties will name state delegates have not met, but estimates In each county accord Roosevelt the advantage. Taft supporters do not admit thla, however, and Intimate the president will have enough strength in the state convention In June to give hind the delegates at large. The total LaFollette vote In tha primaries is a little less than 15,000. Although in one or two Instances ha outran Taft, his candidates for dele gates did not gain enough votea to seriously menace any of Roosevelt*' delegation.
