m. xxxiii. SHAFROTH PROBABLY ELECTED GOVERNOR Looks Like Denver Will Give Majority That Will Poll Shafroth Through- • Stephen Runs Well Over State. Denver, Colo, Nov. 9.(2:30 i>. m.) — Special to the Dally Record.) Incom plete returns from the 59 counties in Colorado outside of Denver, show John F. Shafroth and J. B. Stephen to be running nearly even and th6 re sults will be decided by the vote of Denver oounty. Denver is claimed by the Democrats by 4.000 or 5,000. Ail of the Democratic state candi dates are running well up with the head of the ticket The Republicans claim the election of Judge Garrlgues, Ben Griffith for attorney general. Mrs. Wlxon for state superintendent and Miss Wol cott for regent of the state univer sity The complexion of the next legisla ture is still In doubt. The initiative and referendum car-! ried by a safe majority snd all of the other amendmenta are believed to. have been carried with the possible j exception of that providing for the funding of state warrants. The result In this case Is still in doubt. It Is not expected that the result will be known before night snd perhaps not even then. because of the great amount of "scratched** tickets. Weld county proved the surprise of the state, normally the Republican stronghold snd second only to El Paso county. The Indications arc this noon that the Democrats have al most split even with the Republican candidates. Ten precincts are still missing but there sre considered strong Republican, but Shafroth snd the other Democrats are now in the lead snd the Republican plurality will fall thousands below the figure of two years ago. even If the precincts not yet beard from returned the figures expected. DIX NEXT COVER NOR OF NEW YORK New York. Nov. 9. The election returns indicate that John A. Dtx. Democrat, has l**en elected govern or of New York, over Henry l*. Stim eon. Republican, by between 55.000 and 65.000 plurality These figures may be changed slightly by returns from upstate rur al districts. New York city gives Dtx a plurality of at least 106,000. which more than offsets the greatly reduc ed plurality of the Republicans up state. Two years ago the greatei city gave Chanler. for governor, leas than 60.000 plurality. Below Mr. Dlx on the ticket the re suit is uncertain, although tending toward Democratic success. Thomas (Tonway. the Democratic candidate for lleutennnt governor, appears to be running slightly behind Dtx. The complexion of the legislature which will select a surceasor to Chauncey M. Depow will be settled only by more complete returns, al though It seems probable that the Republicans will have n working ma jority. In New York City. Herbert Parsons. Democrat. was defeated for re-election, ns a representative to congress by O. M. Republican, as was William Bennett. Republican, by Henry George. Jr. Mr. Parsons’ defeat Is the first Democratic gain In the house of representatives reg istered in today’s election Theodore Roosevelt’s home district in Oyster Bay, L. 1., gave Dlx a plu rality of 204, as ngnlnst a plurality of 793 for Hughes In 1908.

Non-partis an returns place the plurality of Shafroth and other state officers at 1800. In Boulder county the pluarllty given Shafroth two year* ago la like ly to be greatly reduced. The coun ty. however, ia safely in the Demo cratic column and all of the county officers, including Sheriff Capp against whom a hard fight was made, are undoubtedly elected. Out of the entire state only one county lias given complete returns, and that !b Mesa county where voting are used, and they had the results at midnight. The Republi cans carried the county by a plural ity of four to six hundred with Ben 1 Griffith for attorney general running far ahead of his ticket. The Democrats swept the slate of j Teller county and so few precincts ' have been heard from that the pin 1 rallty is still in doubt.

I congratulate you and send you my good wishes for success lu your administration." NEW YORK LEGISLATURE WILL BE DEMOCRATIC New York. Nov. t.—l P. M.—( Special to the Dally Record)—Occas ional returns today only emphasise the completeneas of tbe Democratic victory In Now York. For the first time since 1894 the Democrats of all the state depart ments will be in control. They have reversed from the Republican joint majority of sixty in the state legisla ture to a Democratic majority of 25, and have made a clear gain of ten congressmen. The change in the leg islature will Insure a Democratic sen ator to succeed Chauncey M. DePew The new congressional delegation will have 22 Democrats and 15 Repub licans. as against 25 Republicans and 12 Democrats In the present congress. John A. Dix’s plurality for govern or is 62,487. He won despite the fact that his total vote was ntjput 26.000 below the vote of Chanler. the de feated Democratic candidate for gov ernor in 1908. Btlmßon’a vote, how ever. will approximate 100.000 under that cast for Hughes. Aside from Dlx, the eutire Demo cratic ticket won by pluralities of about 50,000.

ALABAMA. VERY CLOSE ELECTION ON COUNTY TICKET Wilkin, Walker, Smith, Kelso And Esser Are Elected. The Other Offices Are Still In Doubt. From Wednesday's Daily. As the Record goes to press at 3 o’clock this afternoon the returns from only twenty-seven of the county precincts are in. From these returns it is not poss ible to predict who will be elected to several of the county offices. But three county candidates are certain of their election. Prof. Henry E. Smith will be elect ed clerk by a majority running from 600 to 800. At present with twenty seven precincts in Smith’s, majority is 941. This may be cut down and it may not he. The precincts to hear from are Democratic, but Mr. Smith seems to run better in Democratic precincts then he does even in Re publican districts. Sanford K. Kelso is elected coun ty commissioner without doubt. He will have a substantial plurality. Joe Esser is probably elected sher iff by a safe plurality. On no other county office can any one safely claim an election yet. On returns now in, Harry Maddox is 77 ahead. On the same returns Mrs. Merriam is 47 ahead. For assessor Robert Ramsey lias 137 plurality on votes now counted. The ten Fremont county precincts not in. two years ago gave on the vote for regent as follows. Demo cratic, 924; Republican, 830. Alfred Durfee is probably elected representative. Gilbert A. Walker of Buena Vista is no donbt elected float representa tive over Billy Fay. For District Judge. Charles A. Wil kin is unquestionably elected over Judge Lee Champion. This is con ceded by Judge Champion's friends. Mr Wilkin will have a majority of over 100 in Park county. Mr. Cham pion has about 60 In Caster county and only 86 in Chaffee. Mr. Cham MINERS ENTOMBED AT DELAGUA MINE Trinidad, Nov. 9. Between fifty and seventy men are believed to be entombed in Mine No. 3 of the Victor American Fuel company at Delagua. located twenty-two miles northwest of here, as the result of an explos ion shortly after three o’clock Tues day. Fifty men came out alive and un harmed through Mice No. 2. which is' connected with the main mine. No. j 3. and according to report to the mine! officers they did not even know there! had been an explosion in No. 3. if' this report is true the explosion.- which badly caved in the entrance to No. 3. did not extend far Into the mine, and it is hoped, therefore, that j the men far within the workings are i unharmed. It was at first reported that the! mine had caught fire and every avail-1 able man in the Victor American com pany's employ was hurriedly notified : to "ush to No. 3 for rescue work. A ■ corps of physicians was also gather-1 ed at Trinidad and Is now on the. scene. Only one wire, one that is con-, trolled by the company, runs Into Del-- aguu. and beyond the fact that fifty , men came out unhurt, no Information lias been given out as to the explos- , ion. It is known, however, that thej normal working force of the three j mines worked by the company is 375 ( men. of which a majority are employ ed in No. 3. In view of this being election day It is believe I the force was much re duced. One report Is that five men were killed anil four others injured at the mouth of the min© when the explosion occurred. These men. It Is believed, were engaged in rebuilding the t ripple which was destroyed not long ago. Officials of the company NO. 38. pion will get more votes in Fremont than was expected, but runs behind in the two strong Democratic coun ties. Mr. Wilkin will probably hare 150 votes plurality in the district. The elections in Canon City and Fremont county yesterday passed off very quietly in all respects. While the rote was not as large as is the case in a presidential year. It was a very good one and shows a whole some interest on the part of people generally in public affairs. The candidates and their friends of both political parties were active and made an endeavor to get out the en tire vote, and. In some precincts al most succeeded in doing so. In Can on City, Florence and some other places carriages were furnished by the committees having charge of the campaign for the use of those who were unable, or disinclined, to walk to the polls, but residents of the rur al precincts had to provide their own means of conveyance to the voting places which, in some instances, were located several miles away. The complete returns from none of the precincts in the county were to be had until after midnight, and several of the precincts including some in Canon City and Florence are not in yet. The slowness with which the bal lots were counted, which, however, was unavoidable on account of the “•erateberi’* tickets, occasioned some impatience on the part of the public at large, but it was not of a carp ing critical kind and was withdrawn when the difficulties and troubles of the judges and the clerks of the elec tion became known. The Daily Rec ord has endeavored to obtain the lat est and fullest information possible in relation to the election in county, state and national affairs which it pr>seuts to its readers. left Denver for the mines this even ing. The new* government rescue car which has been in Denver for the last few days, was also rushed south this evening. Rescue t ar K.n Route. Denver, Nov.

Besides a crew of several men |in charge of C. J. Roberts, of the | United States bureau of mines, the ear is well equipped with life saving 1 apparatus. Special to the Daily Record.. Delagun. Colo..
